We could be in for a bumpy ride. This hurricane season, which officially begins Saturday, is predicted to be unusually active. Instead of a typical season with 12 named storms, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says there is a 70 percent chance that 13 to 20 named storms will develop this year. Of those, seven to 11 could become hurricanes with winds at or above 74 miles per hour; three to six could become major storms with winds at 111 or more mph. NOAAs website explains the three reasons for the predicted activity: Since 1995 the global weather patterns include strong African monsoons that move west across the Atlantic; the water in the tropical Atlantic and Caribbean is warmer than average, providing plenty of fuel for hurricanes; and the East Pacific Ocean El Nino, which suppresses Active hurricane season predicted S ee TOURISM, A6 See JUVE, A6 See SWAT, A5 See HURRICANE, A5 N ews-Sun photo by KATARASIMMONS A von Park City Mayor Sharon Schuler and Thomas Flash Gordon share a smile Thursday morning d uring the dedication of the Thomas Flash Gordon Field at Durrah Martin Baseball Complex.

C M Y K B y BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentA VON PARK Maybe they should have seen itc oming. The issue of fortune tellers came up again before the Avon Park City Council on Tuesday evening. At the session, City A ttorney Gerald Buhr advised city officials to allow a proposed fortune telling business to come in under existing provisions for clairvoyants. I have looked up the definition and I cannot find any real difference between clairvoyant and fortune teller Buhr told the council. The license fee for clairvoyants is $500 per year, but the fee fortune tellers was set at $500 per day. I found many per-day business charges for things like carnivals and Ferris wheel operators. I believe the fortune teller daily charges may have been tied to that they may have been part of that, Buhr said. He explained that if fortune tellers, palm readers, phrenologists or other such soothsayers would come as part of a carnival or other such show, those fees might be applied. s hope we dont have to deal with that, he said. Councilman Parke Sutherland asked if the $500per-year fee might be raised, saying that he had received quite a few phone calls about the proposed fortune tellingb usiness. I have gotten more input o n this than any single item since the police department issue, Sutherland said. Nobody has spoken in favor of lowering the fee. B uhr replied that there is a process for increasing the fee while cautioning council members that under state statute those charges couldn ot exceed a percentage of what other businesses in the zoning classification are being charged and could not be designed to make it impossible for a business to operate. The city attorney did allow that another ordinance regulating such businesses could be formulated, but indicated that would require additional research on his part. Among other things, the council would have to demonstrate a justification for regulating the business. Apparently a court ruling in Georgia regarding background checks for certain businesses has been cited, but Buhr cautioned what had been ruled in another state would have little, if any, effect as to operations in Florida. I do think it is important for us to be able to regulate businesses, Mayor Sharon Schuler said. A pparently, the proposed business will be allowed to c ome in under existing statutes. However, council members agreed by consensus to allow Buhr to do further investigation into thei ssue.

Due to the familys f inancial struggles and time restraints, Kenna and her two brothers, Kayne a nd Jarek, have yet to ever visit Walt Disney World. Kennas love for Disney princesses has kicked into high gear as she growsd evelopmentally and she has made it no secret that her biggest wish is to go to Disney and see the princesses.

I am proud to be an American, where at least I know Im free, And I wont forget the folks who fought and gave that right to me, And Id gladly stand I couldnt stop thinking o f how different all of our l ives would be if the brave men and women who fought and sacrificed not only time at home with their own families but many who actually gave their lives or l imbs for this country had n ot done so. Convinced that the average American had no idea o f what were even fighting for and less interest in tryi ng to help support those brave souls from home b ase, my spirits were totally lifted when over 40 of my fellow Highlands Tea Party patriots showed up to wave flags high in memory of t hose that gave so much to k eep us free. They stood waving their flags for two hours in the hot sun knowing that this was the least they could do to show how grateful they are. More encouragement c ame with the roar of all the beeping horns and constanth and signs of Victory shown by cars and trucks recogniz-i ng the flood of American flags. The noise was defini ng and with uncontrollable tears in my eyes I finally realized that Americans are really still out there, theyh avent gone to sleep, and when the time comes they will stand up and protect this great country that so many gave so much for. God Bless America and those that keep it free. Jeanne Parzygnat Lake PlacidHow does our TDC compare?Editor: Sadly, our Tourist Development Council, (TDC job in promoting tourism to Highlands County or in being good stewards of the bed tax fund. Other recent letters have provided concrete evidence of both abysmal failures. Did you know that Polk County, our neighbors to the north, are doing much better than we? They have formed an advisory council with art and culture (A recommend grants to their TDC. We, of course, do not have this advantage. Polk County has an established procedure for grants: grant application; on approval, funds are dispersed; and the event or venue goes forward. Highlands County does not disperse funds on grant approval. The Acommunity must put up the money and wait to be reimbursed later, which discourages them from applying for grants in the first place. Polk has instituted a means of overseeing and managing their allocations. Seems like a great idea, just to keep them honest with such large sums. We DO NOT have this, either. And lastly, Polk County will pay an administrative cost of $25,000 or 5 percent of allocated funds for A, whichever is least! Our TDC has awarded themselves a whopping 42 perc ent administrative fee to b e paid for by funds diverted from A. We voted for a tourist bed tax to stimulate our communitieseconomicg rowth, but our TDC has not proven themselves responsible or trustworthy in guiding these funds. They blatantly disregard the wish-e s of the voters by diverting funds to their pre-selected agenda. Isnt 10 years of lawlessness enough? Theresa Scott Daisey L ake PlacidN u-Hope awards honor supportersEditor: O n May 17th, Nu-Hope held its inaugural C ommunity Leadership in Aging Services Gala and Awards Dinner. Thee vening was dedicated to honoring the important role o f seniors within our community and to honor those who have enhanced the lives of seniors and strengthened our communi-t s ability to address their needs. C ommunity Leadership in Aging Services awards were given in four different cate-g ories. Senator Denise Grimsley was the recipient o f the Leadership Award in recognition of her efforts to secure continued state fundi ng for senior services. The Service Award was presented to Brenda Knoche for her efforts to address the needs of seniors within herr etirement community and to increase support for senior services. Peter Coughlin received the Advocacy Award in recognition of hisu se of Public Service Announcements on his five r adio stations to inform the community of the importants ervices provided by our agency and to advocate for continued community support. The News-Sun was a r ecipient of the Community Leadership Education Award, an award that was shared with the four community newspapers whichc over our service area. The News-Sun was specifically recognized for its series of articles featuring centenarians residing within our community. I would like to take this opportunity to extend a special thank you to all members of our community who provided critical support to our agency during the past year. In particular, I wish to thank the Highlands County Board of County Commissioners and the Hospital District Board for their support of our programs, as well as the United Way of Central Florida and the Mason G. Smoak Foundation. We also wish to thank the City of Avon Park and the Highlands County School Board for their donation of facilities to house our congregate meals sites. We also wish to thank MidFlorida Credit Union for their generous title sponsorship of our annual golf tournament. Finally, we wish to thank all of the community members who joined together to support our programs and services and make our community stronger and better able to address the needs of all its residents. Again, thank you for the encouragement and support which everyone has given to Nu-Hope Elder Care Services, Inc. over the past year. Your involvement has been truly invaluable. We look forward to working closer with each of you in the future. Ingra Gardner, MA Executive Director Nu-Hope Just because we are 60 miles from either coast does not mean we are safe fromh igh winds or flooding. Many hurricanes cover the entire s tate, and does Arbuckle Creek flood? Just about every time theres a hard rain. N ever underestimate natures power. A lso keep in mind it is not enough to survive the storm itself. You have to survive in the time before help arrives. Depending on storm damage,t hat could be days. Some survivors of Hurricane Katrina w aited weeks. We understand the pull of complacency, but we remem-b er too well the hurricane season of 2004, when Charlie, Frances and Jeanne powered their way through. Part of our roof rolled backe xposing the interior. We had no power, but found a genera tor and took turns writing stories on the only working computer. The executive edi-t or and production director had to drive the printing p lates to a press in Leesburg, and drive the newspapers back. The stories people told us were enough to raise theh airs on the backs of our necks so many involved t rees crashing into homes, roofs flying away and families spending hours underm attresses in bathtubs. We understand the frustration of spending more money than we can afford whileh oping what we buy will never be used. But think of the joy when the duct tape, bottle of water, battery, or bandage is at hand and thew inds blowing 100 mph and the rain is coming down in sheets. Do not wait for the last minute. Nothing is worse than to get drawn into thep anic of people running frantically through stores just b efore a storm is going to hit. Be warned: hurricanes dont bring out the best in ofa ll us. Think ahead watch for sales, but buy only what y ou need and beware the latest gadget. Be organized. Connect with the neighbors. Have a plan of where to go if evacuation becomes neces-s ary. Dont take safety for grante d. Dont think it is too expensive. Think of the residents of M oore, Okla., who didnt have storm shelters. Mother Nature can be nasty, so be ready for her Wi th Moore, Okla., blown into s plinters by a tornado and the c oasts of New York and New J ersey still recovering from Hurricane Sandys powerful storm surge, the NewsSun urges everyone to take hurricane seasons eriously. MONTEREY, Calif. They dont ask, Paper or plastic? around here anymore. Single-use plastic bags are banned, and stores offering paper are required to charge the stiff price of 25 cents per bag. The Monterey law, like many anti-bag ordinances popping up around the nation and the globe, seems to have been authored with good intentions, but where some see overdue environmental awareness, others see government overreach. California leads the nation in combating bag pollution, with more than 70 local governments having banned single-use plastic bags. This month, the states Supreme Court upheld the ordinance in Los Angeles County, which forbids plastic bags and imposes a 10cent charge for paper bags. Ironically, the suit challenging LAs law was brought by an award-winning recycling company, Hilex Poly, which operates one of the worlds largest facilities for turning old plastic bags into new ones. Last year, the firms Indiana plant handled over 20 million pounds of used bags, collected from over 30,000 in-store recycling bins. The U.S. goes through about 100 billion plastic shopping bags each year. Because plastics disintegrate very slowly in landfills and in the ocean, they pose a significant environmental threat. Something must be done and most municipalities have at least looked at the problem, with many having taken action. But while the problem is clearcut, solutions are not. As Hilex Poly has demonstrated, plastic bags can be recycled efficiently. The problem is that both consumers and retailers have been lax. Bags must be kept separate from other recyclables, which is best done by returning used bags to instore receptaclesand too few shoppers bother with it. Outright bans on plastic bags appeal to environmentalists, but cause unintended consequences such as compelling consumers to purchase more plastic trash bags for use at home. When a fee for paper bags accompanies the ban, as with the 25-cent charge in Monterey, the consumer is really stuck. Cloth and reusable plastic bags are impractical for many shoppers and are notoriously unsanitary. Research by the British government indicates that a cotton bag must be used between 131 and 173 times before it dips below the global warming potential of the plastic bags it would replace. Alevelheaded solution was introduced in the House last month by Rep. James Moran (D-Va.), whose legislation would impose a national 5-cent fee on all single-use store bags, paper and plastic. Rather than giving the money to retailers, as many local programs do, Morans bill allocates most of it to land and water conservation programs, as well as to reducing the national debt. While Morans bill keeps the fee low, it compels consumers to at least think twice before simply accepting a bag at the checkout counter. Clerks should be trained to ask two things of every customer: Do you need a bag today? And, Will you please bring back used bags for recycling? Our environment is literally choking on plastic bags, Moran said in an Earth Day message. The time has come to implement a national program that encourages the use of reusable bags instead of plastic. Such thinking will encounter resistance from those who prefer to have states and local governments handle virtually all of societys problems. But it makes little sense to have a 25-cent charge for a paper bag in one town, and unrestricted distribution of both paper and plastic bags across the street. It is also impractical and unnecessary to turn back the clock and completely eliminate the convenience and occasional necessity of a plastic bag. As with many good causes, too many of us are recklessly indifferent, while others insist on being blind to practical considerations as if they had a bag over their head.

C M Y K initial unit. They would only go out one at a time if and when theS WATteam is deployed, she said. Response time was the major consideration for the move, with Benton indicatingt hat the trained EMS worker would be on site in case there was an injury to law enforcement, an innocent bystander or a suspect. Seconds count when youre bleeding out, she said. Benton emphasized having an embedded medic would be preferable to an ambulancec rew, which might have to be staged outside of a perimeter f or safety concerns. Although there is money for the project in the budget,B enton said she wanted to get the OK to move forward due t o the selection process and subsequent personnel training. She allowed that there might be some slight costsi ncurred if a member of the EMS team was on duty when a SWATcall-out was made. However, both departments vowed to make an effort toe nsure that would not happen. H ighlands County Emergency Medical Services Director Harvey Craven saidt he position would be advertised throughout his department to interested param edics who meet certain criteria. From those who step f orward, there would be four selected to take the training for the post. Training would include two weeks of SWATschoolw ith another week of attack medic training. The EMS crew then would participate with the team in ongoing education and exercises. As to the cost, Highlands C ounty Sheriff Susan Benton said the bulk of the project a lready is funded through the use of existing facilities, money from a special lawe nforcement trust fund and interlocal agreements with o ther agencies like Polk County, which already conducts such training and has available seats. Craven said despite the f act the EMS personnel would be deployed with the S WATteam, they would carry only defensive weapons. They might have some personal protection such as a baton or a Taser but they would not be carrying a firearm, Craven said. B enton told the commission her units recently were involved in a successful training exercise in Lake Placid with the HCSO CrisisN egotiation/Hostage Team. It involved a situation where a school would be taken over by a disgruntled parent. The scenario was d escribed as an active shooter incident and was based on a similar incident which had occurred in the Midwest.

All this means more waves of energy will be headed toward the United States, under conditions favorable tot heir growth, without the protection of high-level wind shears to slice the storms power or redirect them away from land into the ocean. S cott Canaday, director of Highlands Countys emergency management, said We dont do anything special (for hurricane season) becausew ere ready for a disaster at any time. We train all year. We do double check to makes ure hurricane shelter kits, used to check-in people seeking shelter, are complete. Hea dded that all county employees are trained and s erve various duties before, during and after a storm. Canaday recommends gett ing a free Hazard Guide from the county. The guide c overs more than hurricanes; it also has information about keeping safe during flooding, cold weather and other natural disasters. The guides willb e available at the government center beginning M onday. Thomas Moran, planning consultant for the HealthD epartment, said there are three steps to take preparing f or the hurricane season: have a plan, stay informed, and get involved. I t is crucial, Moran said, for each family to have a plan for escape before a major storm how to leave and where to go. It is also important to havep redetermined how to stay in contact with family members, and what each members role will be during the storm. Moran said an essential p iece of equipment is a selfpowered transistor radio or computer to keep abreast of t he storms course. Do not forget extra batteries. Ultimately, Moran said, f amilies and neighborhoods will be their own first responders. It may take days for help to arrive. Have enough water on h and for at least three days the rule of thumb is a gallon of water per day per individual. Homes supplied with well w ater should store extra water for flushing toilets and washi ng as the loss of electricity means the loss of the well p ump. Prepare a hurricane kit with essentials, like personalm edications and bandages. Remember to store food that d oes not need refrigeration or electricity to cook. Moran warned about the use of generators or charcoal grills. Carbon dioxide is odorless and colorless and a great t hreat, he said, especially if they are used in a garage or too near the house. T he county is holding a special hurricane preparedn ess seminar for county residents at 6 p.m. Monday at the Bert J. Harris Jr. Agri-Civic C enter.

Zwayer said his officew ould be under the same confidentiality constraints as state officials with regard to divulging or not divulging who was collecting and submitting the tax. Commissioners and members of thep ublic, however, agreed that having the tax collected locally would help ensure that everybody who should be collecting it is actually assessing and remitting the tax. Z wayer reiterated that collecting the tax would not be a money maker for his department and, at the onset, might be a liability. However, through increased participation and efficient enforcement, it could at least be a break-even affair. T he second and most contentious phase of the discussion came with the p roposal to bump the tourist tax from 2 cents to 3 cents on the dollar. Under state statute, the approval would requirea super majority vote of the board, which would mean at least four of the f ive sitting commissioners. The motion failed, only getting a simple 3-2 majority. County commission chairman Jack Richie cast the deciding tally. He fell ont he side of those wanting to wait for a better track record from the TDC board, n oting nearly a decade of activity that had fallen short of the TDC statutes and observing that the organization current-l y has nearly $650,000 of unspent funds in its coffers. We can bring this up again at any time, he said. Citizens on all sides of the issue a ddressed the board, floating out a wide array of different ideas. John Nelson of the Highlands Tea Party pointed out that t he original tourist tax had been enacted following a vote of the people. He told c ommissioners if they wanted to raise the tax, that also should be put up on a citizen referendum. When asked by commissioners if he could be more aggressive and bringm ore tourists, TDC Executive Director John Scherlacher explained his job was to find trends, indicating that the TDCs policy came through committee recommendations. e can always change the way we do things, he said. S everal residents looked to the ballooning cost of administration as a major stumbling block to their supporto f raising the rates. Originally set at 29 percent of the total budget, over the y ears administrative charges had climbed to 42 percent. In casting his vote against raising the t ax, Commissioner Don Elwell said things are now going in the right direct ion but that more time might be needed before additional money was funneled into the organization. Elwell is the cur-r ent chair of the TDC board. The TDC is getting its act together. It has improved its operations, accounta bility and transparency, but we havent done it for long enough to build up trust y et and we need to build up trust, he said. When the proposed increase was defeated, members of the TDC board who had been in attendance at the meet-i ng reportedly walked out. The third phase of the Tuesday night discussion how the money should be spent remained up in the air after commissioners tabled a proposed plan. Commissioners Greg Harris, Jim Brooks and Ron Handley agreed they wantedm ore information from TDC board members, but they already had left the meeting. E lwell presented a PowerPoint with five alternative scenarios since the comm ission did not appear in favor of the TDCs recommendation as suggested, but other board members indicated theyw anted feedback from the TDC. The issue is expected to come up a gain next month. Bill Youngman of the Highlands County Citizens for Government Accountability will taket hat opportunity to suggest to commissioners yet again that they allow a citizen referendum to see whether or not r esidents would like to see a sunset placed on the tourist tax similar to the o ne that is part of the countys extra penny on the dollar sales tax. Currently, there are six cost centers ranging from arts and crafts to off-season events, to lakes maintenance anda dministration. The TDC-recommended plan would cut that to four. First, administration costs would be culled out with the bulk going simply to general advertising and marketing. Aportion for advertising of activities and for lakes restoration also would be seta side.

C M Y K B y LAUREN WELBORN News-Sun correspondent SEBRING Despite a soggy start to the night, Pool Paradise managed to get back to itswinning ways as they tacked on a 14-4 win against Lake P lacids Helena Tuesday night in Dixie Boys baseball action. Things were looking up at the start of the game for Helena as they led off with a Gunnar Smoak double, followed by a stolen base on a passed ball to advance him to third. Chance Bertram then laced an RBI single to bring in the first run of the night. Starting Pool Paradise pitcher Alex Colon doused some of the competition as he struck out the next batter, but not long after Helenas Chris Comito puth imself on third and brought Bertram home. Colon snuck in anther strikeout before Wes Clark d rew a walk, and lured the throw down as he stole seco nd to bring in the third run f or Helena. Another strikeout for Colon put an end to Helenas rhythm as they held a 3-0 lead. Daniel Simons set the motion for the Pool Paradise offense as he reached second with his shot to left field that managed to escape the defense. Justin Bickman followed with a similar situation that allowed Simons to reach the plate. Wyatt Cordell then tied the game with his first tworun home run of the night before the end of the first inning. Helena managed to put Smoak and Bertram on the bases, but Colon continued to battle back against the p ressure and closed the top of the second with another strikeout before any runs could be scored. Pool Paradise took their first lead of the night in the bottom of the second as they added five more runs, including the likes of Colons two-run home run over the center field fence. Also crossing the plate for Pool Paradise were Logan Gregis, Simons, Bickman and Cordell. Helena answered back with one more run in the top of the third as Clarks bunt successfully brought in Comito. The boat ramp on Lake Glenada had been closed for repairs until last week when it re-opened prior to the Memorial Day weekend. I ve fished Lake Glenada, a natural lake located south of the city of Avon Park, for many years and its always been one of my favorite bodies of water. It has an irregular shape and has a surface area of 107 acres. Its roughly three-fourths of a mile long and about a half mile wide. With its deepest area about 35 feet, its actually three lakes in one one witha depth of 35 feet, one with 25 feet of depth and the smallest section with 15 feet. The lake is surrounded by reeds and bulrushes and offers terrific flipping and pitching opportunities. At certain times of the day, the bass will move inf rom the deeper water to feed and when that happens, catching your limit of nice bass is relatively easy. M y son Chris was visiting over the Memorial Day w eekend, so we decided to g ive it a try last Sunday. The water was down, as it is in many of our lakes right now, but theres plenty of water to launch your boat on the new ramp just off Rt. 27. When we arrived there were already three trucks and trailers in the parking lot, but the lake is more than big enough to provide plenty of space for a half dozen fishermen. Rigging up with a Zoom YumDinger, I was rewarded almost instantly with a fat little 2 pounder who apparently thought my offering was breakfast. Minutes later, a heftier 4 pounder came aboard, followed by another 2 1/2 pound bass. The fish were up and active, which is always a good sign on this lake. Because of the deeper sections of the lake, if the fish are deep they can be hard to catch. Fishing along the western shore, we ran into some old friends of mine, Harry and Josey Ervin. Lake Glenada is one of their favorite lakes so I wast surprised to see them working their Carolina rigs in search of some big bass. Harry waved me over an d pulled out his I-Phone to s how me a picture of a nice 7 1/2 pounder that hed just caught and released. It was a beauty. Harry said hed caught the fish in about 8-10 feet of water on the sloping edge of the smaller section of the lake. Harry and Josey fish almost every day, rain or shine and they always have their little dog with them. A s well as I know Lake Glenada, Im sure I could learn a thing a two from this enthusiastic fishing couple. C hris and I picked up a few more bass along the r eeds but noticed a lot of corkscrew grass, as well as p eppergrass matting down the shallow water around the r eeds. It gets tough to get your bait down in the water with this type of vegetation, so we switched tactics and Chris rigged up with a white spinnerbait while I chose a paddle-tail worm as we moved to a new spot away from the reeds. Twenty minutes later, Chris landed our biggest bass of the day, a nice 4 1/2 pounder. As we worked our way back to the boat ramp, a boater on the opposite shoreline was waving at us, holding a nice bass he was pretty proud of. We pulled up to find an old friend, Travon Spry, smiling ear to ear as he hoisted a whopper of a bass hed just caught on a plastic worm. So, although we didnt score with any really big fish, theyre certainly in there as evidenced by Harry and Travons big bass catches during the day. I didnt go out Monday, but Tuesday I thought Id run back up to Lake Glenada SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, May 31, 2013 Page B3 Courtesy photo Don Nortons son Chris visited for Memorial Day and was rewarded with a nice catch.

Pool Paradise hammers Helena Pool Paradise14H elena4 See DIXIE, Page B4 Associated PressNEWYORK Miamis LeBron James and Indianas David West and Lance Stephenson have all been fined $5,000 by the NBAfor violating the leagues antiflopping policy. James and West were penalized for the same play during a messy Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals. James spun and fell and West tumbled toward the baseline during what looked like a poorly choreographed dance routine as the NBAs MVPdefended the Indiana forward. Stephenson was fined Thursday for exaggerating the contact after a slight elbow from Ray Allen following a Pacers basket. The NBAbegan fining players this year for the act of trying to fool referees into calling fouls when there had been limited contact. The Pacers99-92 victory Tuesday was filled with such plays and marked by a combined 55 personal fouls. Steve Kerr, working the game as an analyst for TNT, said flopping has been apparent throughout the series but I think it got worse during Game 4. The league acted hours before Game 5 at Miami. James was voted to the NBAs All-Defensive first team, but Chicago coach Tom Thibodeau accused him of flopping after a play during the Heats secondround series victory over the Bulls. The play with West came not long after James said flopping was not even a bad thing, youre just trying to get the advantage. Kerr said flopping was unbecoming of star players. o me, flopping is sort of the territory of guys who are just trying to hang onto their position in the league and they have to find their way to be successful and productive somehow, he said in a phone interview before the penalties were announced. So if (Shane (Tyler) Hansbrough are going to flop a little bit because thats how theyre going to impact the game right now, Im probably more willing to give them a pass than when I see David West and LeBron falling all over each other in the post, two of the best players in the league. Players were given a warning for a first offense during the regular season but are fined for the first flop in the postseason. The plays can be seen at nba.com/official James, West, Stephenson fined for flopping MCTphoto The NBA has fined three more players for flopping incidents during Tuesdays HeatPacers game in the Eastern Conference Finals.

C M Y K By SCHUYLER DIXON Associated PressIRVING, Texas The conference commissioners who put together the College Football Playoff will not be allowed to serve on the committee that selects the teams that will play in it. The commissioners are still working on the structure of the selection committee for the new postseason system that starts in 2014. But they have eliminated themselves from consideration. Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby, who once served on the basketball selection committee, said Wednesday he thought commissioners recusing themselves was the right way to go. I really believe there are some people with a high level of expertise that would be helpful to the process, a high level of experience that would be helpful to the process, Bowlsby said at Big 12 meetings in the Dallas area. But we felt like it was just going to be too disruptive and too subject to suspicion and therefore decided that we wouldnt be in the room. BCS Executive Director Bill Hancock told reporters at the Southeastern Conference spring meetings in Destin, Fla., that the commissioners are not eliminating the possibility that active athletic directors could serve on the committee, but the focus has been on using former administrators, coaches, and even media members to make up the panel. Hancock says the commissioners would like the committee to have geographic balance. Conferences have been invited to submit names, he said. Probably about 20. Bowlsby says he submitted a list of 15 names that included current and former athletic directors, former league commissioners, former coaches and former media members. Bills instructions to us were dont worry about checking with them in advance, said Bowlsby, who believes there will be overlap among the lists from the 10 conferences asked to submit names. Lets try to identify who the best people are and then well centrally do that. The committee will not have representatives for each conference, and nominees were not supposed to be based on league affiliation, Bowlsby said. I think its reasonable to think that our list included more people with Big 12 backgrounds because we know more people with Big 12 backgrounds, and it will probably be similar in other conferences, Bowlsby said. T he commissioners would like to have the panel, which will include 12-20 people, before the end of the upcoming season, and possibly have them go through a dry run. Theres no timeframe, he said. Were not in a hurry. Theres no rush. I think probably by this bowl season w ell no. Maybe before then. But were not in any hurry. Bowlsby said statistical formulas will have to be established for the committee, and those metrics will be applied to the past decade or so to see how they would have worked out compared to the BCS. H ancock said the tentative plan will be for the committee to meet before the 2014 season, then about four times during the season, starting in October. Bowlsby said members will need a strong work ethic. Theres going to be a lot of film study. Theres going t o be a lot of travel Bowlsby said. The last yearI was on the mens basketball committee, I think I was in the hotel 66 nights for the basketball committee. I think theres going to be a similar level of commitment thas going to be required from this.

In the next two innings, the Pool Paradise bats continued to produce, adding four runs in the bottom of the third and two more in the bottom of the fourth, with Cordells second two-run homer clinching the mercy-rule win. Im proud of them; they h ave been gutting it out, weve gotten a couple tough victories and tonight the bats woke up, said Pool Paradise c oach Dean Frazier. yatt Cordell had a great night hitting, Alex Colon got his first home run, and Bickman has been pretty consistent these last couple weeks. Frazier reflected on a recent loss against Glisson, and spoke of how the team is still adjusting to the loss of players due to injuries. Our biggest thing is that someone is going to have to s tep up and be that pitcher to back Daniel up. He went on to explain that this was Colons first outing and, with a little work, he could be just the person for the job. Pool Paradise will now get ready for their next game on Friday as they take on the other Lake Placid team. Theyve got a good pitcher. If Damian Lusby is available and on his A-game, they will be a difficult opponent, said Frazier. N ot long after this faceoff, all of the Dixie teams will be preparing for the city tournament, where there is a possi-b ility of polished Pool Paradise pitcher Trey Frazier m aking a comeback from an injury. He wants to play, shared Frazier. I may try to get him up there at the beginning of the week to see where his arm is at, but it will all depend on what the doctor says. F razier also wanted to take the time to thank his teas sponsor, Pool Paradise. They have been a great, l oyal sponsor. They sponsor two teams out here, and have d one a lot for the kids throughout the years. Continued from B1 News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Chance Bertram rips this one to right for an RBI in Helenas three-run first inning Tuesday night.

I was surprised to see workers down by the ramp, with heavy equipment parked nearby. They waved, letting me know the ramp was open so I backed the boat down the ramp. Three guys informed me they were building a boat dock that would run alongside the ramp. T hats a great idea since I ve watched many boaters have problems loading up their boat when the wind is blowing hard into the ramp. Speaking of wind, it was a steady 12-15 mph breeze, so I knew itd be tough day to flip. I tried it anyway and managed to catch a few small bass, but I finally gave up and tried fishing a Carolina rig. Carolina rigs can be very productive on Lake Glenada. Moving out to 10-12 feet of water, I let the wind push me along as I dragged the large grape paddle-tail worm behind the boat. Nothing on my first drift, but on the second drift, I hooked a nice fish and after a serious battle in deep water, I brought the 5 pounder boat-side and did a quick release. Positioning myself for a nother drift, it started to rain. I carry raingear, so it was no big deal, but two more drifts with no hits and a sky that was getting darker by the moment finally convinced me to call it a day. T he weather forecast for t his week is 90+ every day with an increasing chance of showers every day. Pretty much heavy wind s predicted 12-17 mph so Ill be fishing some of the smaller lakes this week trying to stay out of the wind. At the suggestion of Derrick Frymier, I set up a facebook page to highlight pictures of some of the fish Ive caught, as well as those caught by others. Check it out at theameric anfisherman.

C M Y K D earPharmacist: On Facebook, you said people c atch Lyme disease from their pets, which tote ticks. Thats how I got Lyme, and Ih ave Bartonella too. I found out because of you, and it e xplained my symptoms of joint pain, confusion, memory loss and seizures. I owe my life to you! I love you, dont take that the wrongw ay. D.C., Des Moines, Iowa A nswer: Thank you. Lyme is is the fastest-growing epidemic in the UnitedS tates. Its been a focus for me ever since my first colu mn which sparked thousands of atta girl emails from 27 countries. Few medi cal journalists tackle Lyme because its extremely controversial. You see, some physicians dont believe chronic lyme exists, andt heres a huge divide about treatment protocols. So while the docs are busy arguing about whether its real, and how long to treat,m ost Lymies are misdiagnosed. They bounce from d octor to doctor, suffer beyond belief and some die.O thers want to. There are 30 Bartonellalike or Bart species; you can get infected from cat bites/scratches, mites, fleas,m osquitoes, biting flies and ticks. Sadly, antibody blood tests only detect a few strains. So your test resultm ay say negative for Bart (and Lyme for that matter) but you still have it. Physicians unaware of the limitations of standard ELISAblood tests mistakenly accept a negative result and diagnose you with a neurological or autoimmune disease, fibromyalgia, CFS or any one of 300 diseases that Lyme mimics. Its a terrible oversight because you might really have Lyme and co-infections like Bart, Babesia or Ehrlichia. Im sure you are alarmed by now, but do you realize theres no conclusive test for fibromyalgia or CFS? These are diagnoses of exclusion meaning your doctor tests you, and rules out every other disease before stamping you with fibro/CFS. But you must ask if Lyme and Bartonella have been ruled out properly by capable, specialized laboratories. For Lyme, I recommend Igenex Labs. For Bartonella, I recommend either Igenex or Galaxy Labs. With all their limitations, theyre still more r eliable than standard ELISA tests which are frequently w rong. I interviewed a lyme-literate medical doctor, Marty R oss M.D who said I often make my decision to treat Bartonella based on symptoms. If you have enough Bartonella symptoms, yous hould be treated for the infection regardless of testing. I suggest you get Dr. Rosss free treatment manual from www.TreatLyme.net/ B art symptoms include chronic fatigue, pain, muscle t witching (fasciculations anxiety, depression, abdomi-n al pain, vomiting, fever/chills, autistic-like symptoms, hallucinations, neuropathy, tinnitus, joint pain, skin rash, stretchm arks, memory loss, brain fog, cystitis or excessive day s weats. Bartonella affects the brain, and vision causing c onjunctivitis, foreign body sensation, vision loss, optic neuritis, redness, blurriness a nd light sensitivity. I have more to say.

C M Y K Page B6News-SunFriday, May 31, 2013www.newssun.com You have tried injections for your facet joints, physical thera-p y, epidural steroids and antiinflammatories and you still have back pain that immobilizes you. Now what? There are several alternatives a vailable: surgery, alternative treatments such as acupuncture and biofeedback/meditation. Surgery is most successful if the symptoms and testing, such asM RI and EMG, all point to the same area. Minimally invasive surgery for back pain is becoming more available. Facet joints between the vertebrae can be fused. Herniated discs and spursi rritating the nerve roots as they exit the spinal column can be r emoved using this method. Using x-ray guidance, a tube is placed at the damaged facet joint, disc orf oramina. Successively larger tubes are passed over the first one u ntil there is enough room to place fixation to fuse the facet joint, insert grabbers to remove the herniated disc or to remove the spur. There is less blood loss and often less anes-t hesia needed for these procedures. Because muscle, fascia and other soft tissues are only minimally disturbed ther ecovery time is faster than the more traditional open surgery. Percutaneous treatment of osteoporotic vertebralf ractures with injection of bone cement show good short-term relief of pain and disability, but long-term studies have not been done. Some things are still better a ddressed by open surgery. The most common of these is spinal s tenosis. Surprisingly one of the groups with the highest success rates is the healthy 80-plus-year-o ld patients. The long term affect of a cupuncture is unclear, possibly because of the varying levels of training from a week or less to several years. There is definite short-term relief. Biofeedback, meditation and short-term workw ith a psychologist can be helpful for chronic back pain. Stress tends to make back pain in some people worse justa s those that are ulcerprone may have a flareup when stressed. Learning better coping mechanisms, eithert hrough biofeedback or meditation, is very effective. It also puts the sufferer in charge of the pain. Studies of individual reactions to similar pains have shown thatt hose who feel in charge will report significantly higher pain t olerances and require less pain medicine. Those who feel that the pain is c ontrolling them, particularly if they have other stressors, will o ften develop chronic pain syndrome. Those suffering with this have genuine pain that limits their ability to work or to carry out normal daily activities. Because these sufferers look normal, this often leads to stress from familya nd others who do not understand why they cannot do things. This lack of sympathy and frustration with the chronic pain become a stressor leading to ani ncreasing cycle of pain that can only be broken with short-term professional help.

Pictured (from left) areD ick Carlson, Faithful Navigator; Rhonda Beckman, Ridge Area Arc CEO; and John Harrison, Grand Knight. Religion E verybody has his own opinion. The question is, how was that opinion formed and who was most influential at arriving att his conclusion? Hi, my name is Pastor Reinhold Buxbaum from The Church of the Way, and I like a word with you. Most people, for instance, are OK with abortion up to a certain age of the baby. They say: It is the mothers body and therefore the mothers decision. This answer is politically correct and accepted by most people. If it is the convenient action to take, why not? They say: It is the best for the mother Or: She is not ready to bea mother. Or: She needs to enjoy life first and then have a child. But does that make it right? Who determines when life begins? Who tells us if it is an embryo or a living baby? Doctors? Parents? Friends? How about God? Is it not God who is in charge of life? So what does God say? Listen to the Psalmist: ou made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mothers womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. (Psalm 139:13,16 NLT) Yes, God makes it clear that each new individual human being begins at fertilization, when the sperm and ovum meet to form a single cell. And yet God is ignored. As a result, since Roe versus Wade, we saw about 55 million babies killed in the womb of their mothers in America. How does this relate to the Coming of the Lord? It typifies the attitude of the generation just before the coming of the Lord Jesus. Paul writes to Timothy: ou should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times. For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and u ngrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-c ontrol. They will be cruel and hate what is good. They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God. (2 Timothy 3:1-4, NLT) Yes, the stage is set for our rapture! Reinhold Buxbaum is pastor of The Church of the Way. He teaches An Evening in Bible Prophecy at Homers Restaurant at 6:30 p.m. every first Monday of the month. Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily those of the News-Sun staff. By whose standard? Guest Column Reinhold Buxbaum I read recently that your temper is one of your most valuable possessions, so dont lose it! There is a loto f truth in that statement. We discussed last week that anger is not always sinful. If it was, then God sinned in Exodus 4:14 when Heb ecame angry. It would also mean that Jesus sinned in Mark 3:5 when He became angry. But, we know that neither the Father nor HisS on ever sinned or ever will sin. There are simply times and places when anger fort he right reasons is justified. However, it is when we become angry for the wrongr easons, lose control of our anger (letting it control us or dwell on our anger for long periods of time that we provide a way for sin to enter our lives. P auls letter to the church at Ephesus instructed them to Be angry, and yet do not sin. We continue this week in Ephesians 4:26 & 27 with the rest of the story. Paul writes, do not let the sun go down on your anger, and do not give the devil an opportunity. Paul was try-i ng to convey to these first century Christians the dangers of anger. Those dan-g ers are the same dangers that we face today. It is not anger, itself, that is alwayst he problem. Further problems arise when we allow our anger to take root and g row in our lives, rather than quickly resolving it. When we fail to put a swifte nd to our anger, we give the devil an opportunity to tempt us with all kinds ofs inful conduct. Paul also taught in Ephesians 4:31 that we must let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away fromy ou, along with all malice. Why? The answer is simple. These spiritual hazards will draw one away from God and the eternal peace Heo ffers. In practically the same breath, however, Paul teaches us what we need in order to draw closer to Godt hrough Christ Jesus. He writes in Ephesians 4:32, Be kind to one another,t ender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiveny ou. In other words, we need to act and react just like Jesus did. God does not forbid us from ever being angry. There are some things thatm erit certain frustrations. However, God does want us to control our emotions. In fact, He wants us to control all aspects of our lives asw e strive to serve Him and grow closer to Him. Remember, anger is just one letter short of danger!

Kevins Komments Kevin Patterson Church News Knights of Columbus donate to Arc OKLAHOMACITY(AP Charities providing relief to residents of tornado-ravaged neighborhoods in Moorea nd Oklahoma City are seeing an infusion of donations from around the country as Americans open up their pocketbooks to help people int he Sooner State. Several of those charities also will likely see a boost in giving Wednesday when several country music stars withO klahoma ties take to the stage at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in downtownO klahoma City for a telethon, Healing in the Heartland: Relief Benefit Concert.P erformers are scheduled to include Oklahoma native B lake Shelton and his Grammy Award-winning wife, Miranda Lambert, asw ell as Oklahoma natives Vince Gill and Reba M cEntire. Also set to perform are Usher, Darius Rucker and Rascal Flatts. The money raised through the telethon will go directly tot he United Way of Central Oklahoma, which will distribu te funding to partner agencies directly engaged in helping in relief and recoverye fforts for those affected by the May 20 tornado, said K arla Bradshaw, a spokeswoman for the United Way of Central Oklahoma. Those are the ones that are dealing right now with the immediate needs, Bradshaw said. Donations have poured in t o Oklahoma since two major tornadoes ripped through the state last week, killing 26 people and affecting nearly 4,000 homes, businesses and otherb uildings in five counties. Twenty-four people, includi ng 10 children, were killed in the May 20 tornado that hitt he Oklahoma City suburb of Moore. The Salvation Army reported Tuesday afternoon it already has raised more than$ 5 million in monetary donations, as well as in-kind food donations from numerous corporations. Aspokeswoman for the S alvation Army working in Moore said giving money is the best way people can help. At the moment our greatest need is to be flexible, and the best way people can help is with monetary donations, said Salvation Army spokeswoman Jennifer Dodd. We spend that money locally to help energize the local economy ... and it allows us to spend it on items we need. Dodd said many people are holding clothing drives to help benefit local residents, but that can pose problems for charities and other groups that might not have the room to store the items.

But since buying your kid a movie credit isa tradition that dates back to the beginnings of Hollywood, you cant holdt hat against it. This sci-fi adventure about a boy who must become a m an to save himself and his wounded warrior father on a h ostile world is a corny, generally humorless M. Night Shyamalan picture withouth is trademark surprises and twists. Its a straightforward q uest in which incapacitated Dad (Will) sends guilt-ridden, fearful teen son Kitai (Jadenf to fetch a rescue beacon that broke free of thes paceship they just crashed in. T his is Earth, a thousand years after weve abandoned it. The buffalo and trees andv ast migrating flocks of birds are back. T here are beasts in the primeval forest Kitai must cross ferocious digital b aboons and digitized tigers and killer digital condors. A digital monster named Ursa was being transported in the space ship. Its on the loose,t oo, tracking Kitais fear There are rivers to cross and and waterfalls and high cliffs he must fly from. The oxygen is thin, the hot days yield tof rigid nights that could kill him. A nd every step of the way, Dad is sitting in front ofh olographic monitors, slowly b leeding out, teaching and leading his son every step of t he way. Most of Dads lectures are a bout controlling and mastering fear. But in odd moments, f ather and son hallucinate the layers of their strained relat ionship, the incident that scarred Kitai for life and that he fears his father blamesh im for. Sophie Okonedo plays the mom who insisted h er would-be Ranger boy go off with legendary Ranger dad for bonding and advent ure. Zoe Kravitz yes, she was born into the business, too plays the boys sister. The digitally augmented scenery is striking and a cou-p le of the action beats work. Jaden isnt an awful actor. But theres little here to separate him from a hundred peers who could have playedt his role as well, if not as prettily. Focusing on him, the m ovie feels a lot more Karate Kid than Will Smitha ction picture. B y ROGER MOORE McClatchy-Tribune News ServiceT he razzle dazzles but the smoke never quite hides the mirrors in Now You See Me, a super-slick new magiciansheist picture that demonstrates, once again, how tough it is to make magic work as a movie subject. Amedium that is, by definition, a trick has a very hard time making the illusions real, realistic and anything anyone would be impressed by. Ask Burt Wonderstone. Ask The Illusionist. Aquartet of street hustlers and rising stars of the various corners of the magic trade are recruited by a mysterious hoodie-wearing figure for a series of epic stunts. Billing themselves as The Four Horsemen, misdirection man Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg) and his former assistant Henley (Isla Fisher talist Merritt (Woody Harrelson) and card-sharp Jack (Dave Franco to star in magic events where they catch the imagination of the world, and their super-rich promoter (Michael Caine). onight, they announce, were going to rob a bank. Which they do, a continent away, raining currency down on an audience. The impossible, physicsdefying caper? Remember, Atlas has told us in the narra-t ion, The closer you look, the less you see. Mark Ruffalo is the comically hyper-ventilating FBI agent always a step behind The Four Horsemen. And Morgan Freeman is the mysterious magic expert who may be helping the feds, explaining to them (and the audience) how tricks work. Or maybe hes playing another game. Theres little character development, and the point of view shifts, willy nilly, between the magicians who start to feel theyre willing puppets in some larger scheme and the cops, while Ruffaloworks himself into a fine comic fury. Its a plot-heavy thriller, too much explaining and need to explain. And without pacing, the mind wanders into Wait, how could any entity other than Hollywood stage a New York bridge crash like that? and the like.

We share a 4-year-old son and have a cordial relationship. S hortly after our divorce, he married a woman he had b een carrying on an affair with while married to me. Since their wedding sheh as not allowed him to enter my home beyond the f ront door, be alone with me for any reason regardless of what we need to discuss, and he rarely calls to talk with our son any-m ore all at her request. He has also informed me t hat shes not comfortable with the idea of us communicating unless shei s part of the conversation. I think she is being silly a nd immature, and he claims to agree, but he wants to keep the peace. I explained to him that even though he may allow her to dictate his life, she will not be dictating mine. If I feel I need to speakw ith him about something, I do not have to include her. Am I wrong? Needs an Answer in Texas D earNeeds an Answer: The current Mrs. is acti ng more like a jailer than a wife, but then, she knowsw hat your ex is capable of if he gets past the front door or has private conversations with another woman. T his is happening because she perceives you as still a threat. That your former husband allows her to exert this amount of con-t rol is unfortunate. The distancing from his son is happening because he is permitting it, and the loser here is the little boy. Youre not wrong, but if the only way your son can have a relationship with his dad is for this woman to be ever-present, then bite your tongue and go along with it for as long as this marriage lasts or your ex summons up enough backbone to set his No. 2 straight. DearAbby: For most of her life, Aunt Lil has kept up a steady correspondence with many people all over the world. When I say she has pen pals everywhere, Im not exaggerating. When the time comes and she is gone, how should we notify her friends? I think a simple form letter would be fine, but my sisters think each person should be notified individually, either with a phone call or a personal letter. Abby, there are 100 people she writes to and those are just the ones were aware of! Your thoughts would be appreciated. Aunt Lils Girls DearGirls: Considering that people live longer these days, I wouldnt write offAunt Lil too quickly. Because she still has all her faculties, ask her how she wants it handled. She may prefer to write her own farewell note to be mailed after her death. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

That was the bottom line of a four-hour Highlands County commission meeting Tuesday evening the bulk of which was taken up by discussions surrounding various phases of the controversial levy on stays of six months or less.

In the past, the sheriffs office had an informal arrangement, involving an employee who worked for both departments. We had Jimmy Ward, who was a part-time sheriffs deputy and also worked for the countys Emergency Medical Service.

We could be in for a bumpy ride. This hurricane season, which officially begins Saturday, is predicted to be unusually active. Instead of a typical season with 12 named storms, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says there is a 70 percent chance that 13 to 20 named storms will develop this year. Of those, seven to 11 could become hurricanes with winds at or above 74 miles per hour; three to six could become major storms with winds at 111 or more mph. NOAAs website explains the three reasons for the predicted activity: Since 1995 the global weather patterns include strong African monsoons that move west across the Atlantic; the water in the tropical Atlantic and Caribbean is warmer than average, providing plenty of fuel for hurricanes; and the East Pacific Ocean El Nino, which suppresses Active hurricane season predicted See TOURISM, A6 See JUVE, A6 See SWAT, A5 See HURRICANE, A5 News-Sun photo by KATARASIMMONS A von Park City Mayor Sharon Schuler and Thomas Flash Gordon share a smile Thursday morning during the dedication of the Thomas Flash Gordon Field at Durrah Martin Baseball Complex.

Gordon, and his son Devaris Dee Gordon, were honored for their work helping renovate the fields. Thank you for making it possible for Avon Park to partner in the renovation project, Schuler said. Im so proud to know you. Thank you. You, your son, all the players who came through here, youre all just wonderful. Flash Gordon grew up in Avon Park, graduating high school in 1986. He went immediately into professional baseball, playing with the Kansas City Royals, and going on to play for the Boston Red Sox and the Philadelphia Phillies. He set a record of 43 consecutive saves with Boston, and won a World Series with the Phillies in 2008. In 1998, 2004 and 2006 he was voted an allstar.

C M Y K ByBARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentA VON PARK Maybe they should have seen it coming. The issue of fortune tellers came up again before the Avon Park City Council on Tuesday evening. At the session, City Attorney Gerald Buhr advised city officials to allow a proposed fortune telling business to come in under existing provisions for clairvoyants. I have looked up the definition and I cannot find any real difference between clairvoyant and fortune teller, Buhr told the council. The license fee for clairvoyants is $500 per year, but the fee fortune tellers was set at $500 per day. I found many per-day business charges for things like carnivals and Ferris wheel operators. I believe the fortune teller daily charges may have been tied to that they may have been part of that, Buhr said. He explained that if fortune tellers, palm readers, phrenologists or other such soothsayers would come as part of a carnival or other such show, those fees might be applied. Lets hope we dont have to deal with that, he said. Councilman Parke Sutherland asked if the $500per-year fee might be raised, saying that he had received quite a few phone calls about the proposed fortune telling business. I have gotten more input on this than any single item since the police department issue, Sutherland said. Nobody has spoken in favor of lowering the fee. Buhr replied that there is a process for increasing the fee while cautioning council members that under state statute those charges could not exceed a percentage of what other businesses in the zoning classification are being charged and could not be designed to make it impossible for a business to operate. The city attorney did allow that another ordinance regulating such businesses could be formulated, but indicated that would require additional research on his part. Among other things, the council would have to demonstrate a justification for regulating the business. Apparently a court ruling in Georgia regarding background checks for certain businesses has been cited, but Buhr cautioned what had been ruled in another state would have little, if any, effect as to operations in Florida. I do think it is important for us to be able to regulate businesses, Mayor Sharon Schuler said. Apparently, the proposed business will be allowed to come in under existing statutes. However, council members agreed by consensus to allow Buhr to do further investigation into the issue.

Diners who eat at Ruby Tuesday in Sebring t onight can bring in a flier and have the restaurant donate 20 percent of their b ill to help Kenna Sherwood. Sebrings Maribel S aunders, who started the Macaroni Kid website, c ontacted Ruby Tuesday last month to see if they would be interested in h osting a give back night for Jennifer S tephens, mother of 4year-old Kenna, who was recently diagnosed with mitochondrial disease. Young Kenna suffers f rom a number of ailments and unfortunately spends t he great majority of her time with physical and speech therapists, doctors, a nd specialists. Due to the familys f inancial struggles and time restraints, Kenna and her two brothers, Kayne a nd Jarek, have yet to ever visit Walt Disney World. Kennas love for Disney princesses has kicked into high gear as she grows d evelopmentally and she has made it no secret that her biggest wish is to go to Disney and see the princesses. Sanders took it upon herself to start a Get K enna to Disney project. The second leg of the init iative is having local diners help out by voluntarily donating a portion of their meal costs to the Kenna Disney fund. Ruby Tuesdays Give Backprogram donates 20 percent of the sales from diners that bring in the Give Backflier.The p roceeds from the program will go directly to Stephens as part of the Kenna/Disney project. Local residents looking to eat out today can help a family have one day of normalcy amongst four years of hard-fought trials. Diners must present the flier at the time of dining. Coupons and or discounts will not permitted to be used with the flier meals must be at regular price in order for the money to go to the Kenna Give Backprogram. Fliers may be acquired by contacting Saunders at maribels@macaronikid.co m or visiting the Sebring Macaroni Kid Facebook page (just type Sebring Macaroni Kidinto the search bar). Eat out tonight and help Kenna Courtesy photo Diners at Ruby Tuesday tonight can bring in a flier that will cause 20 percent of their bill to be donated to help Kenna Sherwood get to go meet a Disney princess.

I am proud to be an American, where at least I know Im free, And I wont forget the folks who fought and gave that right to me, And Id gladly stand up.. I couldnt stop thinking of how different all of our lives would be if the brave men and women who fought and sacrificed not only time at home with their own families but many who actually gave their lives or limbs for this country had not done so. Convinced that the average American had no idea of what were even fighting for and less interest in trying to help support those brave souls from home base, my spirits were totally lifted when over 40 of my fellow Highlands Tea Party patriots showed up to wave flags high in memory of those that gave so much to keep us free. They stood waving their flags for two hours in the hot sun knowing that this was the least they could do to show how grateful they are. More encouragement came with the roar of all the beeping horns and constant hand signs of Victory shown by cars and trucks recognizing the flood of American flags. The noise was defining and with uncontrollable tears in my eyes I finally realized that Americans are really still out there, they havent gone to sleep, and when the time comes they will stand up and protect this great country that so many gave so much for. God Bless America and those that keep it free. Jeanne Parzygnat Lake PlacidHow does our TDC compare?Editor: Sadly, our Tourist Development Council, (TDC) has not done a good job in promoting tourism to Highlands County or in being good stewards of the bed tax fund. Other recent letters have provided concrete evidence of both abysmal failures. Did you know that Polk County, our neighbors to the north, are doing much better than we? They have formed an advisory council with art and culture (A) expertise to recommend grants to their TDC. We, of course, do not have this advantage. Polk County has an established procedure for grants: grant application; on approval, funds are dispersed; and the event or venue goes forward. Highlands County does not disperse funds on grant approval. The Acommunity must put up the money and wait to be reimbursed later, which discourages them from applying for grants in the first place. Polk has instituted a means of overseeing and managing their allocations. Seems like a great idea, just to keep them honest with such large sums. We DO NOT have this, either. And lastly, Polk County will pay an administrative cost of $25,000 or 5 percent of allocated funds for A, whichever is least! Our TDC has awarded themselves a whopping 42 percent administrative fee to b e paid for by funds diverted from A. We voted for a tourist bed tax to stimulate our communitieseconomic growth, but our TDC has not proven themselves responsible or trustworthy in guiding these funds. They blatantly disregard the wishes of the voters by diverting funds to their pre-selected agenda. Isnt 10 years of lawlessness enough? Theresa Scott Daisey Lake PlacidNu-Hope awards honor supportersEditor: On May 17th, Nu-Hope held its inaugural Community Leadership in Aging Services Gala and Awards Dinner. The evening was dedicated to honoring the important role of seniors within our community and to honor those who have enhanced the lives of seniors and strengthened our communitys ability to address their needs. Community Leadership in Aging Services awards were given in four different categories. Senator Denise Grimsley was the recipient of the Leadership Award in recognition of her efforts to secure continued state funding for senior services. The Service Award was presented to Brenda Knoche for her efforts to address the needs of seniors within her retirement community and to increase support for senior services. Peter Coughlin received the Advocacy Award in recognition of his use of Public Service Announcements on his five radio stations to inform the community of the important services provided by our agency and to advocate for continued community support. The News-Sun was a recipient of the Community Leadership Education Award, an award that was shared with the four community newspapers which cover our service area. The News-Sun was specifically recognized for its series of articles featuring centenarians residing within our community. I would like to take this opportunity to extend a special thank you to all members of our community who provided critical support to our agency during the past year. In particular, I wish to thank the Highlands County Board of County Commissioners and the Hospital District Board for their support of our programs, as well as the United Way of Central Florida and the Mason G. Smoak Foundation. We also wish to thank the City of Avon Park and the Highlands County School Board for their donation of facilities to house our congregate meals sites. We also wish to thank MidFlorida Credit Union for their generous title sponsorship of our annual golf tournament. Finally, we wish to thank all of the community members who joined together to support our programs and services and make our community stronger and better able to address the needs of all its residents. Again, thank you for the encouragement and support which everyone has given to Nu-Hope Elder Care Services, Inc. over the past year. Your involvement has been truly invaluable. We look forward to working closer with each of you in the future. Ingra Gardner, MA Executive Director Nu-Hope Just because we are 60 miles from either coast does not mean we are safe from h igh winds or flooding. Many hurricanes cover the entire s tate, and does Arbuckle Creek flood? Just about every time theres a hard rain. Never underestimate natures power. Also keep in mind it is not enough to survive the storm itself. You have to survive in the time before help arrives. Depending on storm damage, t hat could be days. Some survivors of Hurricane Katrina w aited weeks. We understand the pull of complacency, but we rememb er too well the hurricane season of 2004, when Charlie, Frances and Jeanne powered their way through. Part of our roof rolled back exposing the interior. We had no power, but found a generator and took turns writing stories on the only working computer. The executive editor and production director had to drive the printing plates to a press in Leesburg, and drive the newspapers back. The stories people told us were enough to raise the hairs on the backs of our necks so many involved trees crashing into homes, roofs flying away and families spending hours under mattresses in bathtubs. We understand the frustration of spending more money than we can afford while hoping what we buy will never be used. But think of the joy when the duct tape, bottle of water, battery, or bandage is at hand and the winds blowing 100 mph and the rain is coming down in sheets. Do not wait for the last minute. Nothing is worse than to get drawn into the panic of people running frantically through stores just before a storm is going to hit. Be warned: hurricanes dont bring out the best in of all us. Think ahead watch for sales, but buy only what you need and beware the latest gadget. Be organized. Connect with the neighbors. Have a plan of where to go if evacuation becomes necessary. Dont take safety for granted. Dont think it is too expensive. Think of the residents of Moore, Okla., who didnt have storm shelters. Mother Nature can be nasty, so be ready for her With Moore, Okla., blown into splinters by a tornado and the coasts of New York and New J ersey still recovering from Hurricane Sandys powerful storm surge, the NewsSun urges everyone to take hurricane season s eriously. MONTEREY, Calif. They dont ask, Paper or plastic? around here anymore. Single-use plastic bags are banned, and stores offering paper are required to charge the stiff price of 25 cents per bag. The Monterey law, like many anti-bag ordinances popping up around the nation and the globe, seems to have been authored with good intentions, but where some see overdue environmental awareness, others see government overreach. California leads the nation in combating bag pollution, with more than 70 local governments having banned single-use plastic bags. This month, the states Supreme Court upheld the ordinance in Los Angeles County, which forbids plastic bags and imposes a 10cent charge for paper bags. Ironically, the suit challenging LAs law was brought by an award-winning recycling company, Hilex Poly, which operates one of the worlds largest facilities for turning old plastic bags into new ones. Last year, the firms Indiana plant handled over 20 million pounds of used bags, collected from over 30,000 in-store recycling bins. The U.S. goes through about 100 billion plastic shopping bags each year. Because plastics disintegrate very slowly in landfills and in the ocean, they pose a significant environmental threat. Something must be done and most municipalities have at least looked at the problem, with many having taken action. But while the problem is clearcut, solutions are not. As Hilex Poly has demonstrated, plastic bags can be recycled efficiently. The problem is that both consumers and retailers have been lax. Bags must be kept separate from other recyclables, which is best done by returning used bags to instore receptaclesand too few shoppers bother with it. Outright bans on plastic bags appeal to environmentalists, but cause unintended consequences such as compelling consumers to purchase more plastic trash bags for use at home. When a fee for paper bags accompanies the ban, as with the 25-cent charge in Monterey, the consumer is really stuck. Cloth and reusable plastic bags are impractical for many shoppers and are notoriously unsanitary. Research by the British government indicates that a cotton bag must be used between 131 and 173 times before it dips below the global warming potential of the plastic bags it would replace. Alevelheaded solution was introduced in the House last month by Rep. James Moran (D-Va.), whose legislation would impose a national 5-cent fee on all single-use store bags, paper and plastic. Rather than giving the money to retailers, as many local programs do, Morans bill allocates most of it to land and water conservation programs, as well as to reducing the national debt. While Morans bill keeps the fee low, it compels consumers to at least think twice before simply accepting a bag at the checkout counter. Clerks should be trained to ask two things of every customer: Do you need a bag today? And, Will you please bring back used bags for recycling? Our environment is literally choking on plastic bags, Moran said in an Earth Day message. The time has come to implement a national program that encourages the use of reusable bags instead of plastic. Such thinking will encounter resistance from those who prefer to have states and local governments handle virtually all of societys problems. But it makes little sense to have a 25-cent charge for a paper bag in one town, and unrestricted distribution of both paper and plastic bags across the street. It is also impractical and unnecessary to turn back the clock and completely eliminate the convenience and occasional necessity of a plastic bag. As with many good causes, too many of us are recklessly indifferent, while others insist on being blind to practical considerations as if they had a bag over their head.

C M Y K initial unit. They would only go out one at a time if and when the SWATteam is deployed, she said. Response time was the major consideration for the move, with Benton indicating that the trained EMS worker would be on site in case there was an injury to law enforcement, an innocent bystander or a suspect. Seconds count when youre bleeding out, she said. Benton emphasized having an embedded medic would be preferable to an ambulance crew, which might have to be staged outside of a perimeter for safety concerns. Although there is money for the project in the budget, Benton said she wanted to get the OK to move forward due to the selection process and subsequent personnel training. She allowed that there might be some slight costs incurred if a member of the EMS team was on duty when a SWATcall-out was made. However, both departments vowed to make an effort to ensure that would not happen. Highlands County Emergency Medical Services Director Harvey Craven said the position would be advertised throughout his department to interested paramedics who meet certain criteria. From those who step forward, there would be four selected to take the training for the post. Training would include two weeks of SWATschool with another week of attack medic training. The EMS crew then would participate with the team in ongoing education and exercises. As to the cost, Highlands County Sheriff Susan Benton said the bulk of the project already is funded through the use of existing facilities, money from a special law enforcement trust fund and interlocal agreements with other agencies like Polk County, which already conducts such training and has available seats. Craven said despite the fact the EMS personnel would be deployed with the SWATteam, they would carry only defensive weapons. They might have some personal protection such as a baton or a Taser but they would not be carrying a firearm, Craven said. Benton told the commission her units recently were involved in a successful training exercise in Lake Placid with the HCSO Crisis Negotiation/Hostage Team. It involved a situation where a school would be taken over by a disgruntled parent. The scenario was described as an active shooter incident and was based on a similar incident which had occurred in the Midwest. It involved practical tactics where we isolated and contained the problem, stabilized the situation and apprehended the suspect, she said. Our guys did really well. Benton estimated that the entire project from making the selection of EMS personnel to full implementation would take the better part of the summer. She told commissioners the program would not go into effect until October, after the start of the 20132014 fiscal year. www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, May 31, 2013Page A5 MARTIAL ARTS (pp); 3.639"; 3"; Black; ff top rhp summer camp; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 9 9 8 8 6 6 0 0 Comcast/Agenti Media; 11.25"; 10.75"; Black plus three; process main A guaranteed gene; 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 3 0 0 0 0 7 7 9 9 Continued from A1 Susan Benton Highlands County sheriffThey would only go out one at a time if and when the S WAT team is deployed.

All this means more waves of energy will be headed toward the United States, under conditions favorable to their growth, without the protection of high-level wind shears to slice the storms power or redirect them away from land into the ocean. Scott Canaday, director of Highlands Countys emergency management, said We dont do anything special (for hurricane season) because were ready for a disaster at any time. We train all year. We do double check to make s ure hurricane shelter kits, used to check-in people seeking shelter, are complete. He a dded that all county employees are trained and serve various duties before, during and after a storm. Canaday recommends gett ing a free Hazard Guide from the county. The guide covers more than hurricanes; it also has information about keeping safe during flooding, cold weather and other natural disasters. The guides will be available at the government center beginning Monday. Thomas Moran, planning consultant for the Health D epartment, said there are three steps to take preparing for the hurricane season: have a plan, stay informed, and get involved. It is crucial, Moran said, for each family to have a plan for escape before a major storm how to leave and where to go. It is also important to have predetermined how to stay in contact with family members, and what each members role will be during the storm. Moran said an essential piece of equipment is a selfpowered transistor radio or computer to keep abreast of the storms course. Do not forget extra batteries. Ultimately, Moran said, families and neighborhoods will be their own first responders. It may take days for help to arrive. Have enough water on hand for at least three days the rule of thumb is a gallon of water per day per individual. Homes supplied with well water should store extra water for flushing toilets and washing as the loss of electricity means the loss of the well pump. Prepare a hurricane kit with essentials, like personal medications and bandages. Remember to store food that does not need refrigeration or electricity to cook. Moran warned about the use of generators or charcoal grills. Carbon dioxide is odorless and colorless and a great threat, he said, especially if they are used in a garage or too near the house. The county is holding a special hurricane preparedness seminar for county residents at 6 p.m. Monday at the Bert J. Harris Jr. Agri-Civic Center.

Commissioners and members of the p ublic, however, agreed that having the tax collected locally would help ensure that everybody who should be collecting it is actually assessing and remitting the tax. Zwayer reiterated that collecting the tax would not be a money maker for his department and, at the onset, might be a liability. However, through increased participation and efficient enforcement, it could at least be a break-even affair. The second and most contentious phase of the discussion came with the p roposal to bump the tourist tax from 2 cents to 3 cents on the dollar. Under state statute, the approval would require a super majority vote of the board, which would mean at least four of the f ive sitting commissioners. The motion failed, only getting a simple 3-2 majority. County commission chairman Jack Richie cast the deciding tally. He fell on t he side of those wanting to wait for a better track record from the TDC board, n oting nearly a decade of activity that had fallen short of the TDC statutes and observing that the organization currentl y has nearly $650,000 of unspent funds in its coffers. We can bring this up again at any time, he said. Citizens on all sides of the issue a ddressed the board, floating out a wide array of different ideas. John Nelson of the Highlands Tea Party pointed out that t he original tourist tax had been enacted following a vote of the people. He told c ommissioners if they wanted to raise the tax, that also should be put up on a citizen referendum. When asked by commissioners if he could be more aggressive and bring m ore tourists, TDC Executive Director John Scherlacher explained his job was to find trends, indicating that the TDCs policy came through committee recommendations. We can always change the way we do things, he said. Several residents looked to the ballooning cost of administration as a major stumbling block to their support of raising the rates. Originally set at 29 percent of the total budget, over the years administrative charges had climbed to 42 percent. In casting his vote against raising the tax, Commissioner Don Elwell said things are now going in the right direction but that more time might be needed before additional money was funneled into the organization. Elwell is the current chair of the TDC board. The TDC is getting its act together. It has improved its operations, accountability and transparency, but we havent done it for long enough to build up trust yet and we need to build up trust, he said. When the proposed increase was defeated, members of the TDC board who had been in attendance at the meeting reportedly walked out. The third phase of the Tuesday night discussion how the money should be spent remained up in the air after commissioners tabled a proposed plan. Commissioners Greg Harris, Jim Brooks and Ron Handley agreed they wanted more information from TDC board members, but they already had left the meeting. Elwell presented a PowerPoint with five alternative scenarios since the commission did not appear in favor of the TDCs recommendation as suggested, but other board members indicated they wanted feedback from the TDC. The issue is expected to come up again next month. Bill Youngman of the Highlands County Citizens for Government Accountability will take that opportunity to suggest to commissioners yet again that they allow a citizen referendum to see whether or not residents would like to see a sunset placed on the tourist tax similar to the one that is part of the countys extra penny on the dollar sales tax. Currently, there are six cost centers ranging from arts and crafts to off-season events, to lakes maintenance and administration. The TDC-recommended plan would cut that to four. First, administration costs would be culled out with the bulk going simply to general advertising and marketing. Aportion for advertising of activities and for lakes restoration also would be set aside. Continued from A1 North Carolina State, V irginia Tech, Arizona State, UCF (University of Central Florida) and Auburn. There are other schools who wanted him, like The University of Oklahoma; they are still trying to recruit him, said Juves mother Diane. Juve had initially become excited about working in the science triangle in North Carolina, but had a change of heart once he stepped on the campus at University of Auburn. I visited the college in April and I just really loved the campus. They have a great co-op program there as well, Juve said. Juves total scholarship money adds up to $90,300 over the course of four years. The funds are broken down and dispersed through a number of incentives while attending Auburn. Juve will receive free housing ($23,000 for four years), a $2,500 enrichment stipend that may be used for study abroad programs, $15,000 for tuition each year, a $1,000 technology stipend and much more. Juve credits his love of math for allowing him to push himself harder in the classroom. I started right off in ninth grade in college math because I took the lower levels math in middle school. Ive just always had a love of math and Ive always been pretty good at it. I enjoy math because its the same no matter what; its consistent. Youre either right or youre wrong, Juve said. Juves 2190 SATscore is in the top 1 percent of test takers. Afew months after nailing the exam, Juve was contacted by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation. Merit scholarships are offered to students who excel at SATand academics; most scholars are sought after and usually do not have to apply for the scholarship. The persistence of Juves studies, extracurricular activities and dedication to his education have landed him as one of 8,000 finalists that have earned the Merit Scholar title this school year. More than $35 million will be given away in college scholarships this year. The importance of fu rthering his education past secondary school and setting his eyes on a goal have been vital to Juves future, along with motivation from his mother. Juve offers advice to st udents who will be graduating in the coming years on how to further their education and look forward to a life of learning. In order to reach your full potential, it is important to look at strategies for taking these exams, Juve said. You can easily boost your scores once you get used to the format of the exams. Its always a good idea to set aside times for doing work, for studying and for enhancement. Its possible to reach your full potential. As for his future at University of Auburn, the software engineering major is excited to be a part of the co-op program where he will be able to earn credit hours early during the summer. The program allows for Juve to work and be paid for his studies and boasts a 97 percent job placement for graduating students. Juve will be taking a week-long trip to Belize this summer along with several other Merit Scholars and looks forward to beginning college in the fall. Im going to be seein g new places and meeting new people. There is just lots of opportunities ahead for me. Im excited, Juve said. Juve will receive his high school diploma from Sebring High School on Saturday with more than 200 other fellow graduates. Sebring High School commencement exercises will begin at 9 a.m. Saturday at the Highlands County Fair Convention Center. Continued from A1 GARYNICHOLS Gary L.

She was one of those special teachers, he said. Ask anyone who was in school at the time. Mostly, Gordon talked about his family.

C M Y K By LAUREN WELBORN News-Sun correspondent SEBRING Despite a soggy start to the night, Pool Paradise managed to get back to itswinning ways as they tacked on a 14-4 win against Lake P lacids Helena Tuesday night in Dixie Boys baseball action. Things were looking up at the start of the game for Helena as they led off with a Gunnar Smoak double, followed by a stolen base on a passed ball to advance him to third. Chance Bertram then laced an RBI single to bring in the first run of the night. Starting Pool Paradise pitcher Alex Colon doused some of the competition as he struck out the next batter, but not long after Helenas Chris Comito put h imself on third and brought Bertram home. Colon snuck in anther strikeout before Wes Clark d rew a walk, and lured the throw down as he stole seco nd to bring in the third run f or Helena. Another strikeout for Colon put an end to Helenas rhythm as they held a 3-0 lead. Daniel Simons set the motion for the Pool Paradise offense as he reached second with his shot to left field that managed to escape the defense. Justin Bickman followed with a similar situation that allowed Simons to reach the plate. Wyatt Cordell then tied the game with his first tworun home run of the night before the end of the first inning. Helena managed to put Smoak and Bertram on the bases, but Colon continued to battle back against the pressure and closed the top of the second with another strikeout before any runs could be scored. Pool Paradise took their first lead of the night in the bottom of the second as they added five more runs, including the likes of Colons two-run home run over the center field fence. Also crossing the plate for Pool Paradise were Logan Gregis, Simons, Bickman and Cordell. Helena answered back with one more run in the top of the third as Clarks bunt successfully brought in Comito. The boat ramp on Lake Glenada had been closed for repairs until last week when it re-opened prior to the Memorial Day weekend. Ive fished Lake Glenada, a natural lake located south of the city of Avon Park, for many years and its always been one of my favorite bodies of water. It has an irregular shape and has a surface area of 107 acres. Its roughly three-fourths of a mile long and about a half mile wide. With its deepest area about 35 feet, its actually three lakes in one one with a depth of 35 feet, one with 25 feet of depth and the smallest section with 15 feet. The lake is surrounded by reeds and bulrushes and offers terrific flipping and pitching opportunities. At certain times of the day, the bass will move in from the deeper water to feed and when that happens, catching your limit of nice bass is relatively easy. My son Chris was visiting over the Memorial Day weekend, so we decided to give it a try last Sunday. The water was down, as it is in many of our lakes right now, but theres plenty of water to launch your boat on the new ramp just off Rt. 27. When we arrived there were already three trucks and trailers in the parking lot, but the lake is more than big enough to provide plenty of space for a half dozen fishermen. Rigging up with a Zoom YumDinger, I was rewarded almost instantly with a fat little 2 pounder who apparently thought my offering was breakfast. Minutes later, a heftier 4 pounder came aboard, followed by another 2 1/2 pound bass. The fish were up and active, which is always a good sign on this lake. Because of the deeper sections of the lake, if the fish are deep they can be hard to catch. Fishing along the western shore, we ran into some old friends of mine, Harry and Josey Ervin. Lake Glenada is one of their favorite lakes so I wasnt surprised to see them working their Carolina rigs in search of some big bass. Harry waved me over an d pulled out his I-Phone to show me a picture of a nice 7 1/2 pounder that hed just caught and released. It was a beauty. Harry said hed caught the fish in about 8-10 feet of water on the sloping edge of the smaller section of the lake. Harry and Josey fish almost every day, rain or shine and they always have their little dog with them. As well as I know Lake Glenada, Im sure I could learn a thing a two from this enthusiastic fishing couple. Chris and I picked up a few more bass along the reeds but noticed a lot of corkscrew grass, as well as peppergrass matting down the shallow water around the reeds. It gets tough to get your bait down in the water with this type of vegetation, so we switched tactics and Chris rigged up with a white spinnerbait while I chose a paddle-tail worm as we moved to a new spot away from the reeds. Twenty minutes later, Chris landed our biggest bass of the day, a nice 4 1/2 pounder. As we worked our way back to the boat ramp, a boater on the opposite shoreline was waving at us, holding a nice bass he was pretty proud of. We pulled up to find an old friend, Travon Spry, smiling ear to ear as he hoisted a whopper of a bass hed just caught on a plastic worm. So, although we didnt score with any really big fish, theyre certainly in there as evidenced by Harry and Travons big bass catches during the day. I didnt go out Monday, but Tuesday I thought Id run back up to Lake Glenada SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Friday, May 31, 2013 Page B3 Courtesy photo Don Nortons son Chris visited for Memorial Day and was rewarded with a nice catch.

Pool Paradise hammers Helena Pool Paradise14Helena4 See DIXIE, Page B4 Associated PressNEWYORK Miamis LeBron James and Indianas David West and Lance Stephenson have all been fined $5,000 by the NBAfor violating the leagues antiflopping policy. James and West were penalized for the same play during a messy Game 4 of the Eastern Conference finals. James spun and fell and West tumbled toward the baseline during what looked like a poorly choreographed dance routine as the NBAs MVPdefended the Indiana forward. Stephenson was fined Thursday for exaggerating the contact after a slight elbow from Ray Allen following a Pacers basket. The NBAbegan fining players this year for the act of trying to fool referees into calling fouls when there had been limited contact. The Pacers99-92 victory Tuesday was filled with such plays and marked by a combined 55 personal fouls. Steve Kerr, working the game as an analyst for TNT, said flopping has been apparent throughout the series but I think it got worse during Game 4. The league acted hours before Game 5 at Miami. James was voted to the NBAs All-Defensive first team, but Chicago coach Tom Thibodeau accused him of flopping after a play during the Heats secondround series victory over the Bulls. The play with West came not long after James said flopping was not even a bad thing, youre just trying to get the advantage. Kerr said flopping was unbecoming of star players. To me, flopping is sort of the territory of guys who are just trying to hang onto their position in the league and they have to find their way to be successful and productive somehow, he said in a phone interview before the penalties were announced. So if (Shane) Battier and (Tyler) Hansbrough are going to flop a little bit because thats how theyre going to impact the game right now, Im probably more willing to give them a pass than when I see David West and LeBron falling all over each other in the post, two of the best players in the league. Players were given a warning for a first offense during the regular season but are fined for the first flop in the postseason. The plays can be seen at nba.com/official James, West, Stephenson fined for flopping MCTphoto The NBA has fined three more players for flopping incidents during Tuesdays HeatPacers game in the Eastern Conference Finals.

C M Y K By SCHUYLER DIXON Associated PressIRVING, Texas The conference commissioners who put together the College Football Playoff will not be allowed to serve on the committee that selects the teams that will play in it. The commissioners are still working on the structure of the selection committee for the new postseason system that starts in 2014. But they have eliminated themselves from consideration. Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby, who once served on the basketball selection committee, said Wednesday he thought commissioners recusing themselves was the right way to go. I really believe there are some people with a high level of expertise that would be helpful to the process, a high level of experience that would be helpful to the process, Bowlsby said at Big 12 meetings in the Dallas area. But we felt like it was just going to be too disruptive and too subject to suspicion and therefore decided that we wouldnt be in the room. BCS Executive Director Bill Hancock told reporters at the Southeastern Conference spring meetings in Destin, Fla., that the commissioners are not eliminating the possibility that active athletic directors could serve on the committee, but the focus has been on using former administrators, coaches, and even media members to make up the panel. Hancock says the commissioners would like the committee to have geographic balance. Conferences have been invited to submit names, he said. Probably about 20. Bowlsby says he submitted a list of 15 names that included current and former athletic directors, former league commissioners, former coaches and former media members. Bills instructions to us were dont worry about checking with them in advance, said Bowlsby, who believes there will be overlap among the lists from the 10 conferences asked to submit names. Lets try to identify who the best people are and then well centrally do that. The committee will not have representatives for each conference, and nominees were not supposed to be based on league affiliation, Bowlsby said. I think its reasonable to think that our list included more people with Big 12 backgrounds because we know more people with Big 12 backgrounds, and it will probably be similar in other conferences, Bowlsby said. The commissioners would like to have the panel, which will include 12-20 people, before the end of the upcoming season, and possibly have them go through a dry run. Theres no timeframe, he said. Were not in a hurry. Theres no rush. I think probably by this bowl season well no. Maybe before then. But were not in any hurry. Bowlsby said statistical formulas will have to be established for the committee, and those metrics will be applied to the past decade or so to see how they would have worked out compared to the BCS. Hancock said the tentative plan will be for the committee to meet before the 2014 season, then about four times during the season, starting in October. Bowlsby said members will need a strong work ethic. Theres going to be a lot of film study. Theres going to be a lot of travel , Bowlsby said. The last year I was on the mens basketball committee, I think I was in the hotel 66 nights for the basketball committee. I think theres going to be a similar level of commitment thats going to be required from this.

In the next two innings, the Pool Paradise bats continued to produce, adding four runs in the bottom of the third and two more in the bottom of the fourth, with Cordells second two-run homer clinching the mercy-rule win. Im proud of them; they h ave been gutting it out, weve gotten a couple tough victories and tonight the bats woke up, said Pool Paradise c oach Dean Frazier. Wyatt Cordell had a great night hitting, Alex Colon got his first home run, and Bickman has been pretty consistent these last couple weeks. Frazier reflected on a recent loss against Glisson, and spoke of how the team is still adjusting to the loss of players due to injuries. Our biggest thing is that someone is going to have to s tep up and be that pitcher to back Daniel up. He went on to explain that this was Colons first outing and, with a little work, he could be just the person for the job. Pool Paradise will now get ready for their next game on Friday as they take on the other Lake Placid team. Theyve got a good pitcher. If Damian Lusby is available and on his A-game, they will be a difficult opponent, said Frazier. Not long after this faceoff, all of the Dixie teams will be preparing for the city tournament, where there is a possibility of polished Pool Paradise pitcher Trey Frazier making a comeback from an injury. He wants to play, shared Frazier. I may try to get him up there at the beginning of the week to see where his arm is at, but it will all depend on what the doctor says. Frazier also wanted to take the time to thank his teas sponsor, Pool Paradise. They have been a great, loyal sponsor. They sponsor two teams out here, and have done a lot for the kids throughout the years. Continued from B1 News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Chance Bertram rips this one to right for an RBI in Helenas three-run first inning Tuesday night. The Lake Placid squad, however, would only be able to tack on one more run the rest of the night in the loss to Pool Paradise. Dixie action sees Pool Paradise power to win GET YOUR LOCAL NEWS STRAIGHT FROM THE SOURCE and give it another shot. I was surprised to see workers down by the ramp, with heavy equipment parked nearby. They waved, letting me know the ramp was open so I backed the boat down the ramp. Three guys informed me they were building a boat dock that would run alongside the ramp. Thats a great idea since Ive watched many boaters have problems loading up their boat when the wind is blowing hard into the ramp. Speaking of wind, it was a steady 12-15 mph breeze, so I knew itd be tough day to flip. I tried it anyway and managed to catch a few small bass, but I finally gave up and tried fishing a Carolina rig. Carolina rigs can be very productive on Lake Glenada. Moving out to 10-12 feet of water, I let the wind push me along as I dragged the large grape paddle-tail worm behind the boat. Nothing on my first drift, but on the second drift, I hooked a nice fish and after a serious battle in deep water, I brought the 5 pounder boat-side and did a quick release. Positioning myself for another drift, it started to rain. I carry raingear, so it was no big deal, but two more drifts with no hits and a sky that was getting darker by the moment finally convinced me to call it a day. The weather forecast for this week is 90+ every day with an increasing chance of showers every day. Pretty much heavy wind s predicted 12-17 mph so Ill be fishing some of the smaller lakes this week trying to stay out of the wind. At the suggestion of Derrick Frymier, I set up a facebook page to highlight pictures of some of the fish Ive caught, as well as those caught by others. Check it out at theamericanfisherman.

C M Y K DearPharmacist: On Facebook, you said people c atch Lyme disease from their pets, which tote ticks. Thats how I got Lyme, and I h ave Bartonella too. I found out because of you, and it e xplained my symptoms of joint pain, confusion, memory loss and seizures. I owe my life to you! I love you, dont take that the wrong w ay. D.C., Des Moines, Iowa Answer: Thank you. Lyme is is the fastest-growing epidemic in the United S tates. Its been a focus for me ever since my first colu mn which sparked thousands of atta girl emails from 27 countries. Few medi cal journalists tackle Lyme because its extremely controversial. You see, some physicians dont believe chronic lyme exists, and t heres a huge divide about treatment protocols. So while the docs are busy arguing about whether its real, and how long to treat, m ost Lymies are misdiagnosed. They bounce from d octor to doctor, suffer beyond belief and some die. O thers want to. There are 30 Bartonellalike or Bart species; you can get infected from cat bites/scratches, mites, fleas, m osquitoes, biting flies and ticks. Sadly, antibody blood tests only detect a few strains. So your test result m ay say negative for Bart (and Lyme for that matter) but you still have it. Physicians unaware of the limitations of standard ELISAblood tests mistakenly accept a negative result and diagnose you with a neurological or autoimmune disease, fibromyalgia, CFS or any one of 300 diseases that Lyme mimics. Its a terrible oversight because you might really have Lyme and co-infections like Bart, Babesia or Ehrlichia. Im sure you are alarmed by now, but do you realize theres no conclusive test for fibromyalgia or CFS? These are diagnoses of exclusion meaning your doctor tests you, and rules out every other disease before stamping you with fibro/CFS. But you must ask if Lyme and Bartonella have been ruled out properly by capable, specialized laboratories. For Lyme, I recommend Igenex Labs. For Bartonella, I recommend either Igenex or Galaxy Labs. With all their limitations, theyre still more reliable than standard ELISA tests which are frequently wrong. I interviewed a lyme-literate medical doctor, Marty Ross M.D who said I often make my decision to treat Bartonella based on symptoms. If you have enough Bartonella symptoms, you should be treated for the infection regardless of testing. I suggest you get Dr. Rosss free treatment manual from www.TreatLyme.net/ Bart symptoms include chronic fatigue, pain, muscle twitching (fasciculations), anxiety, depression, abdominal pain, vomiting, fever/chills, autistic-like symptoms, hallucinations, neuropathy, tinnitus, joint pain, skin rash, stretch marks, memory loss, brain fog, cystitis or excessive day sweats. Bartonella affects the brain, and vision causing conjunctivitis, foreign body sensation, vision loss, optic neuritis, redness, blurriness and light sensitivity. Ihave more to say.

C M Y K Page B6News-SunFriday, May 31, 2013www.newssun.com You have tried injections for your facet joints, physical therap y, epidural steroids and antiinflammatories and you still have back pain that immobilizes you. Now what? There are several alternatives a vailable: surgery, alternative treatments such as acupuncture and biofeedback/meditation. Surgery is most successful if the symptoms and testing, such as M RI and EMG, all point to the same area. Minimally invasive surgery for back pain is becoming more available. Facet joints between the vertebrae can be fused. Herniated discs and spurs i rritating the nerve roots as they exit the spinal column can be r emoved using this method. Using x-ray guidance, a tube is placed at the damaged facet joint, disc or f oramina. Successively larger tubes are passed over the first one u ntil there is enough room to place fixation to fuse the facet joint, insert grabbers to remove the herniated disc or to remove the spur. There is less blood loss and often less anesthesia needed for these procedures. Because muscle, fascia and other soft tissues are only minimally disturbed the recovery time is faster than the more traditional open surgery. Percutaneous treatment of osteoporotic vertebral fractures with injection of bone cement show good short-term relief of pain and disability, but long-term studies have not been done. Some things are still better addressed by open surgery. The most common of these is spinal stenosis. Surprisingly one of the groups with the highest success rates is the healthy 80-plus-yearold patients. The long term affect of acupuncture is unclear, possibly because of the varying levels of training from a week or less to several years. There is definite short-term relief. Biofeedback, meditation and short-term work with a psychologist can be helpful for chronic back pain. Stress tends to make back pain in some people worse just as those that are ulcerprone may have a flareup when stressed. Learning better coping mechanisms, either through biofeedback or meditation, is very effective. It also puts the sufferer in charge of the pain. Studies of individual reactions to similar pains have shown that those who feel in charge will report significantly higher pain tolerances and require less pain medicine. Those who feel that the pain is controlling them, particularly if they have other stressors, will often develop chronic pain syndrome. Those suffering with this have genuine pain that limits their ability to work or to carry out normal daily activities. Because these sufferers look normal, this often leads to stress from family and others who do not understand why they cannot do things. This lack of sympathy and frustration with the chronic pain become a stressor leading to an increasing cycle of pain that can only be broken with short-term professional help. Recent studies show that opioid pain meds such as Percocet and V icodin may not be a good choice for chronic pain sufferers but that is a topic for another column. Dr. Diana D.

Continued from B8 Page B8News-SunFriday, May 31, 2013www.newssun.com Shirley Shamblin 5x2 00030217 Courtesy photo The Knights of Columbus Council 14717 donated $1,661 to Ridge Area Arc. The donation was the result of the Avon Park Councils annual Tootsie Roll Drive. The Tootsie Roll Drive committee was chaired by Gary Ingalls. Pictured (from left) are Dick Carlson, Faithful Navigator; Rhonda Beckman, Ridge Area Arc CEO; and John Harrison, Grand Knight. Religion Everybody has his own opinion. The question is, how was that opinion formed and who was most influential at arriving at this conclusion? Hi, my name is Pastor Reinhold Buxbaum from The Church of the Way, and I like a word with you. Most people, for instance, are OK with abortion up to a certain age of the baby. They say: It is the mothers body and therefore the mothers decision. This answer is politically correct and accepted by most people. If it is the convenient action to take, why not? They say: It is the best for the mother. Or: She is not ready to be a mother. Or: She needs to enjoy life first and then have a child. But does that make it right? Who determines when life begins? Who tells us if it is an embryo or a living baby? Doctors? Parents? Friends? How about God? Is it not God who is in charge of life? So what does God say? Listen to the Psalmist: You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mothers womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. (Psalm 139:13,16 NLT) Yes, God makes it clear that each new individual human being begins at fertilization, when the sperm and ovum meet to form a single cell. And yet God is ignored. As a result, since Roe versus Wade, we saw about 55 million babies killed in the womb of their mothers in America. How does this relate to the Coming of the Lord? It typifies the attitude of the generation just before the coming of the Lord Jesus. Paul writes to Timothy: You should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times. For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no selfcontrol. They will be cruel and hate what is good. They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God. (2 Timothy 3:1-4, NLT) Yes, the stage is set for our rapture! Reinhold Buxbaum is pastor of The Church of the Way. He teaches An Evening in Bible Prophecy at Homers Restaurant at 6:30 p.m. every first Monday of the month. Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily those of the News-Sun staff. By whose standard? Guest Column Reinhold Buxbaum I read recently that your temper is one of your most valuable possessions, so dont lose it! There is a lot o f truth in that statement. We discussed last week that anger is not always sinful. If it was, then God sinned in Exodus 4:14 when He b ecame angry. It would also mean that Jesus sinned in Mark 3:5 when He became angry. But, we know that neither the Father nor His S on ever sinned or ever will sin. There are simply times and places when anger for t he right reasons is justified. However, it is when we become angry for the wrong r easons, lose control of our anger (letting it control us), or dwell on our anger for long periods of time that we provide a way for sin to enter our lives. Pauls letter to the church at Ephesus instructed them to Be angry, and yet do not sin. We continue this week in Ephesians 4:26 & 27 with the rest of the story. Paul writes, do not let the sun go down on your anger, and do not give the devil an opportunity. Paul was trying to convey to these first century Christians the dangers of anger. Those dangers are the same dangers that we face today. It is not anger, itself, that is always the problem. Further problems arise when we allow our anger to take root and grow in our lives, rather than quickly resolving it. When we fail to put a swift end to our anger, we give the devil an opportunity to tempt us with all kinds of sinful conduct. Paul also taught in Ephesians 4:31 that we must let all bitterness and wrath and anger and clamor and slander be put away from you, along with all malice. Why? The answer is simple. These spiritual hazards will draw one away from God and the eternal peace He offers. In practically the same breath, however, Paul teaches us what we need in order to draw closer to God through Christ Jesus. He writes in Ephesians 4:32, Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you. In other words, we need to act and react just like Jesus did. God does not forbid us from ever being angry. There are some things that merit certain frustrations. However, God does want us to control our emotions. In fact, He wants us to control all aspects of our lives as we strive to serve Him and grow closer to Him. Remember, anger is just one letter short of danger!

Kevins Komments Kevin Patterson Church News Knights of Columbus donate to Arc OKLAHOMACITY(AP) Charities providing relief to residents of tornado-ravaged neighborhoods in Moore and Oklahoma City are seeing an infusion of donations from around the country as Americans open up their pocketbooks to help people in the Sooner State. Several of those charities also will likely see a boost in giving Wednesday when several country music stars with Oklahoma ties take to the stage at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in downtown Oklahoma City for a telethon, Healing in the Heartland: Relief Benefit Concert. Performers are scheduled to include Oklahoma native Blake Shelton and his Grammy Award-winning wife, Miranda Lambert, as well as Oklahoma natives Vince Gill and Reba McEntire. Also set to perform are Usher, Darius Rucker and Rascal Flatts. The money raised through the telethon will go directly to the United Way of Central Oklahoma, which will distribute funding to partner agencies directly engaged in helping in relief and recovery efforts for those affected by the May 20 tornado, said Karla Bradshaw, a spokeswoman for the United Way of Central Oklahoma. Those are the ones that are dealing right now with the immediate needs, Bradshaw said. Donations have poured in to Oklahoma since two major tornadoes ripped through the state last week, killing 26 people and affecting nearly 4,000 homes, businesses and other buildings in five counties. Twenty-four people, including 10 children, were killed in the May 20 tornado that hit the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore. The Salvation Army reported Tuesday afternoon it already has raised more than $5 million in monetary donations, as well as in-kind food donations from numerous corporations. Aspokeswoman for the Salvation Army working in Moore said giving money is the best way people can help. At the moment our greatest need is to be flexible, and the best way people can help is with monetary donations, said Salvation Army spokeswoman Jennifer Dodd. We spend that money locally to help energize the local economy ... and it allows us to spend it on items we need. Dodd said many people are holding clothing drives to help benefit local residents, but that can pose problems for charities and other groups that might not have the room to store the items. Charities see influx of money

C M Y K www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, May 31, 2013Page B9 By ROGER MOORE McClatchy-Tribune News ServiceTruth be told, After Earth wouldnt exist had Will Smith not cooked it up as yet another star vehicle for his son, Jaden. But since buying your kid a movie credit is a tradition that dates back to the beginnings of Hollywood, you cant hold that against it. This sci-fi adventure about a boy who must become a man to save himself and his wounded warrior father on a hostile world is a corny, generally humorless M. Night Shyamalan picture without his trademark surprises and twists. Its a straightforward quest in which incapacitated Dad (Will) sends guilt-ridden, fearful teen son Kitai (Jaden) off to fetch a rescue beacon that broke free of the spaceship they just crashed in. This is Earth, a thousand years after weve abandoned it. The buffalo and trees and vast migrating flocks of birds are back. There are beasts in the primeval forest Kitai must cross ferocious digital baboons and digitized tigers and killer digital condors. A digital monster named Ursa was being transported in the space ship. Its on the loose, too, tracking Kitais fear. There are rivers to cross and and waterfalls and high cliffs he must fly from. The oxygen is thin, the hot days yield to frigid nights that could kill him. And every step of the way, Dad is sitting in front of holographic monitors, slowly bleeding out, teaching and leading his son every step of the way. Most of Dads lectures are about controlling and mastering fear. But in odd moments, father and son hallucinate the layers of their strained relationship, the incident that scarred Kitai for life and that he fears his father blames him for. Sophie Okonedo plays the mom who insisted her would-be Ranger boy go off with legendary Ranger dad for bonding and adventure. Zoe Kravitz yes, she was born into the business, too plays the boys sister. The digitally augmented scenery is striking and a couple of the action beats work. Jaden isnt an awful actor. But theres little here to separate him from a hundred peers who could have played this role as well, if not as prettily. Focusing on him, the movie feels a lot more Karate Kid than Will Smith action picture. By ROGER MOORE McClatchy-Tribune News ServiceThe razzle dazzles but the smoke never quite hides the mirrors in Now You See Me, a super-slick new magiciansheist picture that demonstrates, once again, how tough it is to make magic work as a movie subject. Amedium that is, by definition, a trick has a very hard time making the illusions real, realistic and anything anyone would be impressed by. Ask Burt Wonderstone. Ask The Illusionist. Aquartet of street hustlers and rising stars of the various corners of the magic trade are recruited by a mysterious hoodie-wearing figure for a series of epic stunts. Billing themselves as The Four Horsemen, misdirection man Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg) and his former assistant Henley (Isla Fisher), mentalist Merritt (Woody Harrelson) and card-sharp Jack (Dave Franco) proceed to star in magic events where they catch the imagination of the world, and their super-rich promoter (Michael Caine). Tonight, they announce, were going to rob a bank. Which they do, a continent away, raining currency down on an audience. The impossible, physicsdefying caper? Remember, Atlas has told us in the narration, The closer you look, the less you see. Mark Ruffalo is the comically hyper-ventilating FBI agent always a step behind The Four Horsemen. And Morgan Freeman is the mysterious magic expert who may be helping the feds, explaining to them (and the audience) how tricks work. Or maybe hes playing another game. Theres little character development, and the point of view shifts, willy nilly, between the magicians who start to feel theyre willing puppets in some larger scheme and the cops, while Ruffaloworks himself into a fine comic fury. Its a plot-heavy thriller, too much explaining and need to explain. And without pacing, the mind wanders into Wait, how could any entity other than Hollywood stage a New York bridge crash like that? and the like.

We share a 4-year-old son and have a cordial relationship. Shortly after our divorce, he married a woman he had been carrying on an affair with while married to me. Since their wedding she has not allowed him to enter my home beyond the front door, be alone with me for any reason regardless of what we need to discuss, and he rarely calls to talk with our son anymore all at her request. He has also informed me that shes not comfortable with the idea of us communicating unless she is part of the conversation. I think she is being silly and immature, and he claims to agree, but he wants to keep the peace. I explained to him that even though he may allow her to dictate his life, she will not be dictating mine. If I feel I need to speak with him about something, I do not have to include her. Am I wrong? Needs an Answer in Texas DearNeeds an Answer: The current Mrs. is acting more like a jailer than a wife, but then, she knows what your ex is capable of if he gets past the front door or has private conversations with another woman. This is happening because she perceives you as still a threat. That your former husband allows her to exert this amount of control is unfortunate. The distancing from his son is happening because he is permitting it, and the loser here is the little boy. Youre not wrong, but if the only way your son can have a relationship with his dad is for this woman to be ever-present, then bite your tongue and go along with it for as long as this marriage lasts or your ex summons up enough backbone to set his No. 2 straight. DearAbby: For most of her life, Aunt Lil has kept up a steady correspondence with many people all over the world. When I say she has pen pals everywhere, Im not exaggerating. When the time comes and she is gone, how should we notify her friends? I think a simple form letter would be fine, but my sisters think each person should be notified individually, either with a phone call or a personal letter. Abby, there are 100 people she writes to and those are just the ones were aware of! Your thoughts would be appreciated. Aunt Lils Girls DearGirls: Considering that people live longer these days, I wouldnt write offAunt Lil too quickly. Because she still has all her faculties, ask her how she wants it handled. She may prefer to write her own farewell note to be mailed after her death. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.
