C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY c hristopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING At its regular meeting Tuesday evening mem-b ers of The School Board of Highlands County voted to a pprove a single sign-on system for the district. They did not have a choice. S ingle sign-on systems are mandated by the federal governments Race to the Top grant. Harry Howes, the districts manager of management informa-t ion systems, explained to the board what a single sign-on system is. It provides several benefits, Howes said, because it is a cen-t ral portal for authorized stakeholders to all of Floridas state e ducational programs.

Dyer will be saying goodbye to the education world today after more than four decades of service to the students in Highlands County. Since Lake Country first opened in 1988, Dyer has been a part of the school seeing it through some difficult as well as joyous times. Though the Houston natives initial plans for life never included stepping into a classroom, she calls it a God thing and is thankful for how everything worked out in her 41 years of working in Highlands County schools. Initially I wanted to work for the U.N. (United Nationss definitely a God story and he worked it all out, Dyer said. Dyer was key in motivating teachers and students last year when the school dropped to a grade Din 2011. Dyers incessant motivation, encouragement and determination along with strategic planning helped bring the school from below average to one of only three Aschools in the county in 2012. Dyers leadership and gumption have transcended the classrooms and flowed into the everyday lives of teachers and students at LCE. eve built a strong, determined faculty here. The legacy of this school is that we have positive teachers who honor and respect parents and students. I have the utmost respect for this faculty, Dyer said. And that is what I will miss the most: the camaraderie. Ill miss working with a a group of people toward a common goal. Assistant Principal Carla Ball has been named the new principal. Friends, family and faculty bid Dyer a long, happy retirement during her retirement party at LCE last week. The long-time educator is looking forward to her well-earned time off. As far as her life following being an educator, Dyer is ready for whatever comes her way. I started making plans for retirement and then I thought, No, I need to be still for a little while.I havent really made any plans beyond spending more time with my family but I have no doubt that my second best life, my life after my first best life being an educator, will be as equally lovely, Dyer said.

By BARRYFOSTER N ews-Sun correspondentAVON PARK Its the first fruits of an effort that has been going on for several months now. Following a presentation from Jeff Roth, Director of the Champion forC hildren Advocacy Center in Highlands County, Avon Park Lakes Baptist Church Pastor George Hall said a number of families have stepped forward wanting more information on becoming foster parents. e have three families, two from our church family and one other that want to find out more about it, Hall said. We also have another couple who want to see about being what they call a respite family Respite families will take children on a short-term basis to give foster parents a bit of a break for a vacation or other business. Roth said he has started an effort to reach o ut to the faith community in an attempt to find solid families which could provide structure and moral guidance for foster children. es, we have been looking for Christian homes. We find they are the most stable,q uite frankly, Roth said. He has started speaking engagements with churches about the foster care system in regard in what has been referred to as the 11-1 program.

C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comS EBRING This is a story about wonder, espec ially for readers who watched Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin land on them oon, while Michael Collins orbited above them in 1969. A t the same time as manned space travel took this first big step, teachersu sed blackboards and chalk. Forty-four years later, Tuesday, June 4, 2013, when a visitor entered a HillGustat Middle School classr oom there wasnt a blackboard in sight. In fact, the visit had to do with a conversation Susan Harriseighth-gradea dvanced academics science class had with Stephen Sell, the leader of the team that chose the landing site for the Mars rover Curiosity and designed the landing components of the craft. S ell, however, had not been physically in the room. H e spoke from California at the Jet Propulsion Lab via Skype. So, here was a lesson coming across the continenti n real time about events currently taking place on Mars, more than 350 million miles away. Actually, the students w ere not overwhelmed by the technology. It turns most of them are so familiar with Skype theyre no longer amazed by its technology. And Sell wasnt the first interesting person the students had met via Skype earlier in the semester, Harris had arranged for separate interviews with Mike Genoreli and Joe Acaba, both NASAastronauts. Still, the students were truly amazed by the scope of the project, the length of time it took and the cost. For example, they were surprised Curiosity is the size of a car, that it took 10 years to plan the mission and build the machine and nine months to get to Mars. They were impressed by the $2.5 billion price tag, and surprised that if every adult i n America bought a $7 movie ticket it would pay for the mission. The amount of time and the number of people involved in picking a landing site for Curiosity alsot ook them by surprise. Universities, for example, c ontributed suggestions. Students said from there it was a matter of narrowing the list to a single choice a crater named Gale. T hey appreciated the fact that naming the rover was turned over to students who had to write an essay in support of their suggestion.T hey were proud, and a little surprised, the winner was 11 years old. The coolest thing, they said, was that the girl got to autograph the rover shed named. Few of the students showed an interest in this kind of work. The most common reason being the high level of stress. They have the Seven Minutes of Terror, said Trevor Doty. s called that because there is a 14 minute delay (in radio signalsThey send commands and then dont know for seven minutes if they worked. If they didnt work its too late to do anything, Ritika Manik explained. Siddharth Ananthan said he and his classmates were very aware that talking with S ell was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and informative. It was a great experience altogether It shows how such a big step opens up learning, said a classmate. Before, you only knew what the textbooks tell you, N atalie Hintz said. This was a window into the real world. Chalk it up to the future.

Were going tos tart June with a bang. Trinder said the chamb er had been experiencing an uptick in interest following the recent eco-n omic downturn. Trinder has been making contacts w ith both new businesses and new owners and, she said, there have been applications for membership coming in daily. When the economy went down, there were a l ot of people who sold their businesses. I have been going and talkingw ith some of the new people and there seems to be a lot of interest, she said. The new memberships come just in time for thea nnual banquet, which has been set at the Island View Lakefront R estaurant and Pub at Sun N Lake on Tuesday, June 2 5. There will be a social hour at 5 p.m. with dinner scheduled for 6 p.m. e needed their video facilities, Trindere xplained. We have a roll out of some new features and we want everybody to be able to see them. She did not share what the new features might be, other than to say currentm embers would be pleased. One of the most asked questions I get is What can the chamber do for me?I hope this presentation will help answer thatq uestion. The theme for the evening will be Its a Whole New Ballgame, with Dr. Ron Sevigny,A von Parks Mr. Baseball, slated to discuss the role baseball has played in the city, including major league, minor league and high school teams. Sevigny has both knowledge and artifacts. Some of those pieces, including a bat made for legendary home run hitter Babe Ruth, are on display at the Avon Park Depot Museum. Dr. Sevigny will be looking back at the past, but also will address some remarks to the future, Trinder said. Those attending will have a choice of London broil or chicken Chauser.

MacKenzie went toa Florida supermarket near Tampa last month to buy a Powerball ticket, another person in line did something nice for the 84-year-old widow. While in line at Publix, another lottery player was kind enough to let me go ahead of them in line to purchase the winning Quick Pick ticket, she said in a statement Wednesday. The nice gesture turned out to be a life-changing one for MacKenzie and her family. She came forward Wednesday to claim the biggest undivided lottery jackpot in history, $590 million. Aretiree from Maine and a mother of four who lives in a modest, tin-roof house in Zephyrhills, where the lone winning ticket in the May 18 drawing was sold, MacKenzie took her prize ina lump sum of just over $370 million. After federal taxes, she is getting about $278 million, lottery officials said. Wearing large sunglasses and dressed in a pink sweater and white pants, she clasped her sons arm after visiting the lottery offices as they made their way to a silver Ford Focus and left quickly. She did not speak to a crowd of reporters outside the building. She was accompanied at the lottery offices by two unidentified attorneys. MacKenzie bought the winning ticket at a Publix supermarket in the town of about 13,300, which is 30 miles northeast of Tampa. It is best known for the bottled spring water that bears its name. Widow, 84, claims $590M lottery

But thanks to our nations dysfunctional C ongress, the Postal Service has become a zombie agency. I s starved for money, and lurches from idea to idea to achieve financial viability. But nearly every time the Postal Service c omes up with a potential solution BANG! Congress shoots it in the head. I s a messy metaphor, but lawmakers are almost single-handedly (with the aid of labor unions) killing a venerated American institution whose first postmaster general was the beloved Founding Father Benjamin Franklin. L ike many institutions (including newspapers) its business has declined in part because of technological innovations. ... When clear-thinking members of Congress sought to allow the Postal Service to raisep ostage rates more easily, senators like Thomas Carper of Delaware called for nuance. Is it any wonder Congress is less popular than lice and NFLreplacement refs? The Postal Service doesnt need nuance. It n eeds to be brought back to life. Congress needs to pass a comprehensive bill that gets r id of health-care pre-funding and lets the Postal Service function with the autonomy that was envisioned back in 1971. U nless, of course, Congress prefers sucking the life from one of the nations great i nstitutions. An editorial from the Orlando Sentinel. Congress to blame for Postal Services woes St ephen King would have a hard time coming up with a more horrifying plot for t he U.S. Postal Service. Plenty of blame for BenghaziEditor: Our own Rep. Tom Rooney, had an article in the paper the other day in which he accused the Obama Administration (and Hillary Clinton in particular) of looking the other way and allowing Ambassador Stevens and three security guards to die in Benghazi. Should we then assume that the Bush Administration did the same during the eight years Republicans were in office, and there were 64 attacks on our consulates around the world in which 14 people died? The Bush Administration was so unconcerned that they only had three congressional hearings on the subject. Former Defense Secretary Gates said it best: Some people have a cartoonish idea that the U.S. military stands poised to spring into action if there are any kind of trouble spots. He went on to point out that this bring out the Batmobile idea is far from the truth. Every hot spot situation must be assessed for the needs and risks, permission must be sought from the country about to be entered, and the availability of air and manpower be determined. (The closest aircraft that could have aided the consulate was 1,600 miles away in northern Italy. In order for them to make it to Benghazi, they would have needed aircraft tankers to refuel the planes. None were available.) If Representative Rooney is so utterly devastated by the deaths in Benghazi, why is it that he and his fellow Republicans voted to slash $128 million from consulate security in 2011 and $313 million in 2012? Secretary of State Clinton warned at the time, that these cuts would be devastating. She was right. Millie Grime SebringFunny thing about LiberalsEditor: Funny thing about Liberals they often forget the facts, particularly when they don't fit their point of view. The Sunday Edition of the News-Sun included a letter illustrating that very clearly. The letter writer asked why President George W. Bush hasnt been prosecuted for leading us into the Iraq War. Well, the answer is real simple, as is usually the case. You see, the problem is that if you prosecute President Bush, you also have to prosecute Joe Biden, John Kerry, Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer, to name a few. All of these voted in favor of authorizing force and attacking Iraq. Hmmm...what could we call this? How about an Inconvenient Truth. I would say thats rather appropriate. Now, just a side note. Unlike President Obama, President Bush actually went to Congress before sending troops into harms way. And just one more thing: President Bush never disappeared for five hours in the middle of a crisis, unlike President Obama did while four Americans were killed in Benghazi. Thank you for the opportunity to set the record straight. Mike Lee Sebring BouquetThanks to the communityEditor: The Avon Park Noon Rotary third annual Blueberry & Bluegrass Festival was an outstanding success. The family friendly festival raised funds for many of the charitable projects that Rotary supports in the community and brought local and out of town visitors to the lovely downtown Donaldson Park. The following Sponsors contributed to this success: Avon Park Downtown CRA District, Winn Dixie, Avon Park Housing Authority, Jarrett Ford, Wells Motor Co., Ed Burnside at Edward Jones, Heartland National Bank, Highlands Independent Bank, Geo Dev, Longs Air Conditioning, Souther Signs, Florida Hospital Heartland, North Central Homes, and Forrest Hilton CPA. In addition the following companies and individuals contributed directly to the festival: Publix, SFSC, Milton Farms, Maxwell Groves, Taylor BP, Homemade Creations, Olympic Restaurant, Big T Tires, Turner Furniture, Eighteen East restaurant, Chicanes Restaurant, Wild Turkey Tavern, Barben Fruit Co., Avon Park Middle School, Ronnie Jackson, Avon Park DunkinDonuts, and the Sandwich Depot. The Avon Park Noon Rotary Club thanks all of those listed above and the returning and new vendors who brought original arts and crafts products that completed the festival along with food vendors and McCracken Farms fresh produce. The Kids Zone was offered by Homemade Creations with fun bounce houses, Heartland Horses & Handicapped Inc. pony rides, and Magic by Nelson. The outstanding chicken dinner by the Rotary BBQ Team was a sold-out success. Thanks also go to the Blueberry Bake-Off Judges who had the difficult job of eating their way through prize-winning entries: Dr. Mike McLeod, Vicki Spires, Captain Randy LaBelle, Debbie Algreen, Ross Myles and Dr. Tina Cardenas. Chet Brojek President Avon Park Rotary Club Jay Leno told his studio audience the other night thatP resident Obama should forget his plans to close the detention camp at Guantanamo Baya nd instead close the IRS. The applause was instantaneous and the laughs were loud andg enuine. Most ordinary Americans w ould have whooped and hollered in favor of Lenos idea long before theyl earned the IRS has been caught targeting conservat ive political groups and wasting millions on moronic employee-training conferences. But the IRS is no joking m atter. The average working A merican poor or rich or in-between hates and fears the IRS for good rea-s on. Able to seize your bank a ccount or house without a court order, able to shut down your businesso vernight, the IRS is the closest thing to the Gestapo America has ever had. B ut its not the current IRS scandals that are the r eal problem. Its not the hated tax-collecting bureaucracy itself. Its not even whether the Obama regime used the dangerousp owers of the IRS as a political weapon. The real problem the long-term problem and the one Republicans have to find the courage to fix is the horrible income taxs ystem the IRS is hired to enforce. T he federal income tax code deserves the death penalty for a lot good reasons. Its unfair, overly complex, horribly politi-c ized, harmful to individuals and the economy, helpful to the forces of Big Government and impossible to understand without aC PA. Its also a costly waste of money and time. Just complying with our unnecessarily (but deliberately plicated federal tax system costs Americans about $430 billion a year, according to economist Arthur Laffer. The IRS scandals are a golden opportunity for conservatives and Republicans to direct the countrys attention toward the ultimate and long-overdue goal abolishing the IRS as we know it and drastically reforming our tax code. We need a strong leader now who will stand up and lead the country down the road to radical tax reform. Maybe its going to be Sen.T ed Cruz of Texas. Earlier this week he called for abolishing the IRS after instituting as imple flat tax that could be filled out on a postcard. Maybe itll be another rookie in Washington, Sen. R and Paul of Kentucky. The biggest problem we h ave is that our side the tax-reform side has no leader and no clear, unifiedm essage. Should we conservatives g o for a Flat Tax or a Fair Tax? Alow, simple, flat-tax percentage for all income earners, minus deductionsf or home mortgages and charitable deductions? Or a n ational sales tax of about 23 percent that would replace both the federali ncome tax and the payroll tax? I f my father Ronald Reagan were around today, I know what hed do. H ed do exactly what Id do get the flat-taxers and the fair-taxers together i n a room and have them hash out a single tax r eform program to sell to the American people. So, sure, lets bring the Obama Gang and its IRS lackeys to justice for theira buses. But what we need most right now is for someone Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Donald Trump, even Jay Leno to convene a national tax convention thatw ould unite our side and lead the fight for a better t ax code. Republicans cant afford to be split on the important issue of income tax reform or miss this chance to focuso n the crimes of the IRS. The Flat Tax and the Fair Tax each have pluses and minuses that need to be debated. But in the end itr eally doesnt matter which idea triumphs. America and all Americans would be better off with either one. Either would eliminate the progressive tax system and make federal taxes simpler, fairer, smarter and apolitical. And, best of all, either one would kill the IRS as we know it forever.

He maintained that if e ach church in Highlands County were to produce just one foster family, there would be more than twice as many currently needed. T he 1-1-1 program actually is the brainchild of Missy Albritton, who cameu p with the idea after hearing about the number of children across theS unshine State in need of foster care. In short, we are looking for a place where you can expect youngsters will getg ood character guidance, Roth said. F lorida child welfare officials say they have recruited nearly 1,200 new foster parents in the past fiscal year. Department ofC hildren and Families Secretary David Wilkins s aid the recruitment goal is part of a statewide effort to not only increase the quan-t ity of foster parents, but to find more qualified ones A n open house is planned locally for June 28 for past ors and those interested in the 1-1-1 project. That is s lated to be held in the Grogan Center at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Churcho n Main Street in Avon Park. R oth said a new law grants foster parents the authority to make decisions without going through case workers or courts aboutt hings like attending summer camps and obtaining a d rivers license. That is a big deal, and it will make things much eas-i er, he said. We will have a lot more information at o ut June 28 meeting. Continued from A1 full council Tuesday evening. A long with the deed, a landscape proposal plan was a pproved by council. The Community Redevelopment Agency must give approval to fund the landscape plan before the project begins. T he next issue that was tackled was the time frame in which contractors are permitted to start and finish the project. I would be comfortable with a year ... just because we are going into the middle of storm season, said council president Andrew Fells. Members Scott Stanley and John Clark both agreed. The idea is to move expeditiously to get it completed, but for purposes of whether it would revert back, this would give it a sufficient cushion of time, Swaine said. Kahn was not pleased with the amount of time that was granted for the contracting portion of the project, but accepted the councils stipulations. That seems excessive but I understand the nature in which you are doing it, Kahn said. Fells explained that the one-year period for the improvements of the park would be better for the project in the event something happened near the end of a threeor four-month contract and an extension would need to be granted, which would cause Kahn to have to reappear in front of the council. The deed also states that the grantors (Marvin and Elsa Kahn) and their successors are to promptly notify the city attorney of any changes or improvements to the park. This is going to be a very nice park. Im glad to have that here and I want to say thank you for your family granting that to the city Mayor George Hensley said. Sadie Kahn Memorial Park will undergo a number of renovations and improvements in the coming months, including a brick walkway, art sculptures, lighting, a centennial sculpture and a monument that gives the history of Sadie Kahn and her family in Sebring. The council members unanimously passed the motion for the deed revisions and improvements to the park.

Pretty quickly it will expand to include students and then parents. Single sign-on does more than make life easier, Howes added. It creates an opportunity for teachers to work at home. Alocal separate server provides the equivalent of a safe drop-box. A teacher may put material in a file, leave it on the private server and access it at home. Howes said this means teachers will be able to work on lesson plans after hours, for example. It also means districts can exchange student information at the local level while, at the state level, all stakeholders can keep track of student and teacher data in real time. Howes hopes to begin the installation and training of the new system over the summer to be ready for the new school year. But that may be too optimistic, he warned. Although the single sign-on deadline is about a year away, many school districts, like Highlands County, want to implement the system as soon as possible, and make use of the summer vacation. Because only one company is working with 38 districts, the waiting list long. How quickly it moves remains to be seen, Howes said. It will be costly initially, he told the board, because there is set-up and training involved. After that theres yearly fee. The hardware, software and training comes to $71,000 this first year. In the beginning it will cost the district about $5 per user. Once the training and instillation are complete, however, the price per user drops to $2. Thirty-eight Florida districts have piggy-backed on a contract with Stoneware Inc. to provide the equipment and training. The bulk of the funding comes from the Obama administrations $4 billion educational reform funding program called Race To The Top. Florida was one of the 11 states, and the District of Columbia, which won a portion of the funding. Part of the reason was because the state set a goal of raising the percent of proficient eighth-grade math students from 29 percent to 40 percent and raising the graduation rate from 66 to 75 percent by 2014. Continued from A1 App part of Race to the Top funding By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY c hristopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING School board members approved several changes to thes tudent code of conduct Tuesday evening. This was only a first in the process. There will be a development hearing at the next board meeting July 18th. The boards final vote wontc ome until July. In most cases the changes were made to catch up with new technology. The dress code now reads, Students may not wear clothing or display jewelry, buttons or any other items i ncluding tattoos with words, phrases, symbols, pictures, patches, or graphics which are indecent, distractive or disruptive to the learning environment. This includes anything that ish azardous, offensive or sexually suggestive. Also, students may not participate in or attend any school-sponsored activity the day they receive corporal punish-m ent.

Theu se and possession of electronic cigarettes and nicotine delivery systems are prohibited. Electronic communication devices from cell phones to laptops to Er eaders still may not be used at school. The school board added teeth to the prohibition. If students ignore an order to put their electronic devices away, they will be confiscated and returned tot he parent after a teacher/administrator conference. Students also will be referred for defiance of authority. Airsoft guns have been added to the list of dangerous objects not allowed in school. It includes mace, pepper spray,c igarette lighters and laser pointers. School Board updating student code of conduct By JAMES ROSEN M cClatchy Washington BureauWASHINGTON Billions of dollars in funding cuts for food stamps, con-t ained in bills moving through Congress, have split D emocratic lawmakers and angered advocates for the poor, who criticize the cutsa s heartless attempts to reduce the federal budget d eficit. The anti-hunger lobbyists are especially disappointed b y Democrats who in recent weeks have voted for the cuts in legislation that passed the House of Representatives and Senatea griculture committees last month, measures that also contain controversial aid to farmers. Food stamps have been p rotected for decades, said Ellen Teller, the head of g overnmental affairs for Food Research and ActionC enter, a Washington advocacy group. This is the first time theyre being cut for deficit reduction. We think itsw rong to pay down the deficit on the backs of the poor Teller and others who work to protect low-incomeA mericans are dismayed because food stamps were among the safety net programs that Congress exempted from the forced across-the-board cuts now in effect under the system known as sequestration. Food stamps and aid to farmers have been paired in single measures for years in order to draw the support of lawmakers from agricultural states and those who represent large numbers of poor people, many of whom are clustered in urban areas. But with rising federal debt and increased demands for reducing budget deficits, both programs have come under attack from fiscal hawks in Congress who campaigned on promises to slash government spending. The Senate has been cons idering dozens of amendments to the measure this week that would reduce food stamp funds by $4 billion over a decade with specificc uts aimed to certain recipient categories. Such cuts w ould reduce benefits for about 840,000 of the 47 million recipients. ASenatev ote on that bill might come as early as Thursday. S en. Debbie Stabenow, a Michigan Democrat who crafted the farm bill thats n ow on the Senate floor, defended the measure. Stabenow said its food stamp cuts were less severe than those in the House billa nd that her legislation significantly restructured agricultural aid by changing direct payments to farmers into federal support fori nsurance premiums, so that farmers would get aid only w hen they suffered financial losses. T he House is expected to take up its legislation later this month with food stamp cuts of $21 billion, about 3 percent of the program, thatw ould reduce or eliminate benefits for 2 million people by imposing tougher eligibility requirements and reducing benefits. R ep. Steve King, R-Iowa, has argued for the cuts, noting during a House Agriculture Committee meeting in May that the number of food stamp recipients has grown substantially during his decade in Congress and accusing the Obama administration of trying to expand the dependency class. Twenty-three Republicans and 13 Democrats on the committee voted for the farm bill with the food stamp cuts. Two Republicans and eight Democrats voted against the legislation. Rep. Barbara Lee, DCalif., is mobilizing opposition to the spending reductions. Shes lined up 20 lawmakers to rally next week at a Safeway grocery store in Washington and pledge to l imit their food purchases for a week to $31.50, the average food stamp payment. The cuts to our nations s ocial safety net are unconscionable, Lee said. Programs like the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (the formal name for food stamps) provide a vital lifeline and help put food on the table for millions of people across the country. The (House farm bill, as it stands, doest deserve support from anyone. Two-thirds of the 201 House Democrats have signed a measure calling for the food stamp funds to be restored. Sue Berkowitz, the head of the Appleseed Legal Justice Center in Columbia, S.C., said cutting food stamps would further harm people whom the weak economy had been hurting for years. s just heartbreaking t hat a majority of our representatives in Washington does not recognize how important a program it is for people here, she said. Andt he cuts will have a ripple effect, because its money that goes into our economy when people buy food. Stabenows aides say the Senate measure includes focused cuts. It would target lottery winners who take lump-sum payments but continue to get food stamps by reporting low income, and it cracks down on black marketers who illegally buy and sell food stamps at a profit. The bill also would reduce food stamp benefits for specific people primarily in California, Washington state, Pennsylvania and 13 other states whose housing rental payments cover utilities but who still are able to claim energy expenses among their monthly costs when applying for food stamps.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING The game that was in danger of not starting became one that would seemingly never end. But when the final out was made, nearly three and a half hours after the first pitch, it was Pool Paradise claiming the Dixie Boys City Tournament crown with a 12-10 win over Publix Wednesday night. With a massive blob of heavy rains showing on the radar as moving up from the south all afternoon, there was the wonder if the game would even have the chance to get started. But the heavy rains never came, with just an intermittent, steady drizzle that wouldnt delay the proceedings. Rather, it was a minuscule strike zone, and thus the exceedingly patient hitters such a strike zone created, that caused this one to drag on to a time span more befitting a Major League game, albeit in two less innings. And it was Pool Paradise, in the last game of head coach Dean Fraziers tenure, that took the lead right off the bat. With one out in the top of the first, Fraziers son Trey, ripped a double into the left-field corner. And when Daniel Simonsdeep fly ball to right couldnt be snared, the younger Frazier came around for a 1-0 lead. That lead was short lived, however, as Publix scored twice in the bottom of the inning without the benefit of a hit. Awalk to Brendan Doty started it off, with Doty soon stealing second. An error off an Everett Hurst hard grounder allowed Doty to score, and two outs and two walks later, an errant throw on a pick-off attempt brought Hurst home and a wild pitch brought Trevor Thomas in for a 3-1 Publix lead. That lead held until the top of the fourth when Pool Paradise tied it up. Alex Colon lead off the frame with a double to right center and Logan Gregis drew a walk. The next two batters were struck out, but Justin Vegetarian an old indian word for bad fishermen. Might sound like a lot of excuses, but fishing has gott en tougher in the last week or so. Late last week and into the weekend we had some incredible wind. Non-fisherman probably didnt give it a thought, but when youre out on the w ater and the wind is blowing at 15 to 20 mph, it gets your attention. F inally, by last Sunday, the winds subsided, but the rain came in. I dont mind fishing in the rain, in fact, I prefer the rain over heavy winds, but when it rains in Florida, it really rains. Last week, I managed to fish four days in a row, on four different lakes. F ishing was tough, even without factoring in the wind or rain. In April and May, catching a dozen bass on every trip was pretty easy. All of a sudden, the games changed and the bass s eem to have vanished. Fishing alone three out of the four days, and fishing with Burt Watkins on one day, I was averaging about three fish per trip. And nothing larger than about 3 pounds. The areas that had been consistently holding fish for the past couple of months yielded very few bites, and most of the fish caught were in the 1 1/2to 2-pound range. The lakes are low this time of the year. Some down as much as a foot or two, which may account for the bass abandoning the areas. The start of the rainy season should correct that problem over the next few weeks. The lakes are pretty muddy as well, I suspect from the high winds. At Lake Istokpoga, I finally found some fish using the matted hydrilla fo r cover. Unfortunately, the wind was too strong to fish the area well, but I suspect thats where the bigger bass will be holding over the hot summer months. Plastic baits ranging from frogs to toads, plastic worms to speed worms and other topwater weedless baits will be on the menu as we approach the hottest months of the year. Best bets will be offshore grass beds with newly emerging hydrilla. As most bass fishermen know, these vegetation mats provide excellent cover for bass while providing shade and plenty of baitfish. So, not much to report for the week leading up to this column. But I thought Id tell you a story my father used to tell when I was a kid. Seems there was this old boy who had just returned to the boat ramp with a cooler full of big and small bass. At about the same time, the game warden pulled up and decided to check out what he had in his cooler. Upon reviewing the contents, the officer was surSPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, June 7, 2013 Page B3 C ourtesy photo Josey Ervin with a 4 pounder caught at Lake Glenada on Tuesday, June 4.

Ive watched Shannon Williams sign, I saw Whitney Lee sign, and now Ive reached the goal of signing in the big room. That of course, is the showcase of the dream, the moment in time when it is realized earning a scholarship to college and the opportunity to continue in her chosen sport is the real dream. And for Rose it came to fruition Tuesday morning as she signed to attend Webber International University and play with Warriors basketball team. Though it will be a tough task to earn minutes on a loaded team. Webber won the Sun Conference last season and returns four of five starters, not to mention a bevy of underclass talent. But head coach Grady Morrell, in his third season, definitely sees the attributes Rose brings. First, shes a character kid, which is what we look for, he said. But shes also got length and can run the floor. We play a 94-foot game, so we need athletes. And thats what she has, the athleticism and intellect. She has a very high basketball IQ. Something that has come about through many years of honing her craft at the high school level. When I was in Frostproof, they brought me up in the 6th grade to play JV, she said. Since Ive been at Sebring, coach (Mike me with my endurance and with my ball handling. Both of which should help the 5-foot-11 Rose fit right in with the Warriors. I see her playing at 4 (power forward said.

C M Y K By RONALD BLUM A ssociated PressNEWYORK One by one, for three weeks already, players accompanied by their lawyers have been summoned to interviews as part of baseballs latest investigation into performance-enhancing drugs and the process is a long way from finished. Some pretty big names, led by Alex Rodriguez, could be on the hot seat. A-Rod, Ryan Braun, Nelson Cruz, Melky Cabrera and Bartolo Colon are among the 20 or so players who may be disciplined for their links to the now-closed Miami antiaging clinic, Biogenesis of America. The playersunion says it has been assured no decisions regarding discipline will be made until the interviews are completed. It would be unfortunate if anyone prejudged those investigations, union head Michael Weiner said in a statement Wednesday. And it appears the process has a while to run. Interviews with players started three weeks ago and are scheduled until the end of June, according to people with knowledge of the process who spoke on condition of anonymity because statements on those details werent authorized. Dan Halem, Steven Gonzalez and Patrick Houlihan, lawyers in baseballs labor relations department, conducted several interviews, and some players havent been scheduled. Every player has been or will be represented by an attorney from the players association, Weiner said. The playersassociation has every interest in both defending the rights of players and in defending the integrity of our joint (drugWe trust that the commissioners office shares these interests. MLB has been seeking the cooperation of Biogenesis founder Anthony Bosch since Miami New Times reported in January that it obtained what the paper said were records detailing drug purchases by Rodriguez, Cabrera, Cruz and Colon. Yahoo Sports reported that Braun, the 2011 NLMVP, was mentioned in the records. MLB sued Biogenesis and its operators in a Florida court in March, an attempt to pressure Bosch. Aperson familiar with the case told The Associated Press on Tuesday night that Bosch agreed to talk to MLB,a deal first reported by ESPN. MLB wants to speak with Bosch in the next few days, Due to ongoing litigation, it would be inappropriate to comment on any aspect of this matter at this time, Boschs lawyer, Susy Ribero-Ayala, said in a statement. Among the players linked to the clinic, Cabrera, Colon and San Diego catcher Yasmani Grandal already have served 50-game suspensions following positive tests for testosterone announced by MLB last year. It looks like it could be getting to the bottom of this and finding some information that hopefully would help Major League Baseball as far as cleaning this game up, said San Francisco manager Bruce Bochy, who managed Cabrera last year. I always thought they should be a little stricter to keep these players from trying to beat the system and cheat. Im all for stiffer penalties. Once MLB interviews Bosch and the players, it will have to determine what penalties to impose. ADAcommends the decision of Major League Baseball to seek suspension of an estimated 20 players, World Anti-Doping Agency Director General David Howman said in a statement. More and more, information and evidence gathered in the investigative process is proving an effective means of uncovering doping in sport. MLB has approached this issue in a professional way, and the evidence gathered will undoubtedly be pivotal, Howman said. Any suspensions for first offenders would be put on hold if the union files a grievance, a process that would put the matter in front of an arbitrator and delay possible sanctions for weeks or months. Second offenders would serve suspensions during the grievance process. Baseballs drug agreement calls for a 50-game suspens ion for a first violation, 100 for a second and a lifetime ban for a third for positive tests for banned PEDS or their use or possession. The agreement also allows discipline for just cause fora violation not specified. Any player disciplined could file an individual grievance, and it isnt likely that cases would be combined into one proceeding. If Bosch testifies at a hearing, he would be subject to cross-examination, and playerslawyers likely would try to attack his credibility. The Florida Department of Health sent Bosch an unlicensed activity citation on April 25, accusing him of practicing medicine without a license from 2009 through 2012 and asking him to sign a cease and desist agreement. That action was first reported by the New York Daily News on May 6. Rodriguez admitted in 2009 that he used performanceenhancing drugs while with the Texas Rangers from 200103. As baseballs highest-paid player with a $28 million salary this year, he would lose $7.65 million during a 50game ban. Rodriguez, who turns 38 next month, has not played since hip surgery in January and is not expected to be available to the New York Yankees until after the AllStar break. The third baseman, a threetime ALMVP, has been working out since May at the teams minor league complex in Tampa, Fla., and he drove past reporters without stopping when he arrived and left three hours later Wednesday after batting practice, fielding and agility drills.

Braun has acknowledged he was mentioned in Biogenesis records because his lawyers used Bosch as a consultant during the grieva nce. Ive already addressed everything related to the Miami situation. I addressed it in spring training. I will not make any further statements about it, he said. The truth has not changed. B raun said the speculation hasnt affected him on the field. No, of course not.

Looking up at the fisherman, and reaching for his pad to write a ticket, the officer said Boy, not only have you broken the law by keeping too many fish, but you have a number of fish that are too small to keep. The fisherman, without hesitation said Oh, I didnt catch them there fish officer.T heyre my pets! T he officer laughed and responded, Youre pets? Thats a good one. No really officer.Thats the mama and the papa, as well as a couple of uncles and the smaller bass are all the children.

No sir. Just watch and Ill prove it to you that Imt ellinthe truth, the old boy said as he reached into the cooler to grab one of the larger fish.

I gotta see this, the officer exclaimed S lowly the fisherman grabbed each bass and with a fatherly touch, released each one into the shallow water. The game warden watched patiently as the fish swam off and after a couple of minutes, asked the fisherman to call the fish back.

Bickman came through with a double to score both runners to square things up at t hree apiece. Scott Hamilton, on in relief, worked a one, two, three bottom of the fourth and Simons broke the tie in the top of the fifth when he walloped a pitch not only over the left field fence, but likely over Westminster Rd. as well. Publix grabbed the lead back in their half of the fifth, with Jay Bible and Luis Lugo coming in. But the pool boys grabbed the lead for good in the top of the sixth, exploding for s ix runs. With the bases loaded and nobody out, Bickman drew a walk and Frazier belted a grand slam home run over the right-center field fence, t hough one of the runs was disallowed as it was ruled one of the runners never touched home plate. Still, the lead was 8-5, and would grow to 10-5 after S imons drew a walk and one out later, Hunter Martinez parked one into the parking lot beyond center field. But Publix came right back with four runs of their own in the bottom of the sixth. Christian Luevano lead off with a single up the middle and came racing around on Dotys triple down the left-field line. Hurst reached on an error, bringing Doty in, and Bible drove Hurst in with a single to right. Bible would later score to make it a 10-9 margin. But Pool Paradise added two insurance runs when Frazier walked and scored o n a Simons double. Simons advanced to third on the throw home and would soon come in on a wild pitch to push the lead to 12-9. Publix would inch a little closer on a one-out Hurst RBI double, but reliever Bickman got the final two o uts to seal the win. They boys really pulled through and Im proud of them, coach Frazier said. It was a slow, grind-it-out sort of tempo which kind of played to our advantage. And amid numerous tourn ament titles, state titles and Dixie World Series champio nships, Frazier called it a Dixie coaching career in grand fashion. s a good way to end i t, he said. And I have to mention our sponsor, Brad Kurtz of Pool Paradise. Hes really done so much for mea nd my teams over the years. With his support all this time, he really helped make all this possible. Continued from B1 Pool Paradise outlasts Publix to eventually work her way toward being an athletic director. The chance to continue to play and advance her education were dreams that came true on Tuesday, added with the benefit of being able to still live at home though i s not such a benefit for everyone.

By LAUREN WELBORN N ews-Sun correspondentSEBRING During Tuesday nights Dixie Ozone City Tournament action, the Firemen took on Elite Plumbing as the two battled to stay alive in the tournament. Elites loss to Elks and Firemens loss to Pool Paradise Monday night put the two teams under the one-two, barbeque threat of being sent home. In the end, it would be Firemen who came out on top with a 7-2 win to put them against Rotary as the tournament continued on Wednesday at the Max Long Recreation C omplex. Rotary had come from behind with a late charge to top Pool Paradise in a heated 5-4 battle. Shawn Algate Jr. got the win on the mound for Rotary and had the gamewinning hit. In Wednesday nights elimination contest, Rotary came out on top of the Firemen, 7-5, to move themselves into the title game.

C M Y K D earPharmacist: What do you recommend for strains, sprains and spasms? Im an athlete and have something happen allt he time! T.S., Dallas, Texas Answer: Great, youre committed to staying fit. Im a gym junkie myself. Studies prove how exerciseb oosts your cognitive function and memory recall, i mproves mitochondrial function, spreads healthier DNAand improves mood. .. makes your jeans look good, too! But one misp laced step can result in an injury that hurts for days, or longer. Asprain refers to a stretched or torn ligament,f or example, in the wrist or ankle. Ligaments connect b ones to other bones at a joint. Some of you feel a when it happens. As train refers to a stretched or torn muscle/tendon. S trains cause pain, swelling, and sometimes muscle spasms. No fun!M edicines usually treat the smoke, not the fire. To quickly improve your level o f comfort consider RICE. The RICE acronym will h elp you remember essential steps to relieve a strained ankle, wrist, or other area. R is for rest. Its important to minimizeu se of the affected area while it heals. Also important immediately after a strain is the I for ice. Ice reduces swelling that occurs while your body sends blood to bring whiteb lood cells and nutrients to the hurt area. The C is f or compression, which also helps with inflammation. Finally, E is for elevation. Keeping the strained joint elevateds ometimes decreases inflammation but a physician should be consulted. Certain supplements may provide natural relief forp ain and swelling, thus treating the fire. Here goes: Arnica :Arnica montana can be taken as homeopathic pellets, or applied directly to your skin. I like Traumeel made by Heel, because it has arnica plus other ingredients that reduce pain and inflammation. Astaxanthin : Asuper nutrient and protective antioxidant, science shows it is remarkable at supp ressing NF-kappaB, a chemical pathway in your body that spits out com-p ounds, that when produced in excess, create p ain: Prostaglandins, TNFa, IL-1B, iNOS and others. Twelve milligrams of this one is my go-to supplement after excessiveb oogying at Zumba. Comfrey: This herb h as been shown to decrease swelling from sprains and strains. It contains allan-t oin, which reduces inflammation. When applied to t he skin, Comfrey ointments can help with bruising, pulled muscles andl igaments, sprains, strains, and osteoarthritis. Comfrey is sold at health food s tores. Magnesium Malate: A specific type of magnesium bound to an apple extract (malic acid helps muscle spasm and pain, even fibromyalgia.E psom salt baths are great, toss in a few drops of eucalyptus essential oil. Turmeric and Garlic : Cooking with these ingredients (or supplementing) improves mus-c le recovery and reduces inflammation by suppressi ng pain-causing cytokines all over the body. Zinc: After a trauma or injury, your body requires extra minerals toe xpedite the healing process. Zinc is particularly supportive for wound healing (and prostate health). Supplementingy our zinc and vitamin C may shorten your healing time and rebuild soft tissue connections.

Triathlons which consist of swimming, bicycling andr unning can vary in distance. The Sprint distance entails a quarter-mile swimi n Lake Jackson, a 14-mile bike ride and finishes with a 3.1-mile run in the historicd owntown Circle area. This year an Olympic dist ance has been added consisting of swimming .9 miles, biking 24.8 miles andr unning 6.2 miles to finish. Most people recognize the s ignificance of strong and healthy feet for the running portion of the triathlon since runners spend a lot of time pounding their feet on hardg round. But most people dont understand the import ance of healthy feet when swimming. Athletes foot and toenail f ungus infections can cause embarrassment with bare f eet at the pool or lake. To avoid fungus infections, make sure to wear flip-flops a round the pool and dry your feet well after you swim. Cuts on the feet can happen when racing in open water, running from the beach intot he water, possibly through rocks, shells, mud. Some swimmers experience pain in the muscles and joints in the upper body,s uch as shoulders, however, foot problems can occur. F eet help propel the body through the water. There isf lexing and extending of the foot with the strokes, but there is also the push-off at each end of the pool during practice. Highlands CountyH urricanes swim coach Marvin Wolfe relates lack of flexibility hinders older triathletes. He recommends stretching exercises such ass itting on the feet and leaning back. For foot and calf cramps he recommends standing stretches for the achilles tendon. He also reminds us to adequately hydrate with water. For practices longer than an hour replenish with electrolyte drinks. One of the most common cycling complaints while riding is hot feet, known as burning sensations near the toes. This sensation is mostly due to pinching of nerves. A simple test is the squish test. Pull out the insole f rom your cycle shoes. Using a mirror, hold the insole up to your bare foot. If you see any part of the foot beyond the insoles edges, buy aw ider shoe. Quick solutions include: move your cleats 2-3 mm towards the rear of shoe to take pressure off yourf orefoot loosening your foot s traps try a different insole (either thinner if your shoe is t oo tight or more cushioned if you have room in the shoe) or custom foot bed choose socks made of high-tech fibers such asC oolmax and Thermax, which wick away sweat check the shoes for irregular seams or straps/buckles which may bep ressing against the outer edge of the forefoot buy a wider (in the f orefoot) shoe or get your shoes stretched M any runners, at some point or another, may become injured. Common foot injuries when running include heel pain, achillest endonitis, shin splints, stress fractures, neuromas and or s esamoiditis. Heel pain known as heel spur syndrome or plantar f asciitis is an inflammation of a ligament on the bottom of the foot that attaches to the heel. Achilles tendonitis is an inflammation on theb ack of the heel. Shin splints or tibial stress syndrome refers to pain in the front or inner part of the lower leg. Stress fracture also called h airline fracture is a weakening of the bone from repetitive stress. Neuroma pain is from an inflamed nerve in the ball of the foot.I nflammation or injury of the sesamoid bones (sesamoiditis) on the plantar surface oft he big toe joint can also cause pain in athletes. If left untreated, occasiona l foot pain can become constant foot pain, which can f orce you to stop training.

C M Y K The prophet Jeremiah (31:31-34p ower of the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:20,21) told of a new covenant that God Almighty w ould make and it would not be like the old. The H ebrew writer, guided by the same Spirit, further explains what that new covenant entailed in 8:6-13. Hebrews is as masterpieces howing the superiority of Christ over the old system/covenant in every way. One of those areas of superiority is the tabernacle, church, house, templeo f God. But Christ came as High Priest of the good t hings to come, with the greater and more perfect tabernacle not made with hands, that is. not of this creation. (Hebrews 9:11)A s Paul stood in Athens in the midst of the Areopagus, he boldly proclaimed, God, who made the world and everything in it, sinceH e is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. (Acts 17:24 ing the same truth proclaimed by Stephen in Acts 7:48-50. In light of this information, the following quote is interesting regarding a physical structure: Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints regard the temple as the house of the Lord-the most sacred place on earth. The temple is literally the house of the Lord. (Ensign, October, 2010, pages 3,4) Our constitution allows us freedom of religion, but the serious student of the Word will recall and heed the aged admonished: Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false p rophets have gone out into the world. (1 John 4:1 The students love for Truth will also prompt them to heed the warning: For thet ime will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they willh eap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn t heir ears away from the truth, and be turned aside tof ables. (2 Timothy 4:3,4) The word church as used in the Greek New Testament refers to people as clearly noted in Acts 8:1-3 and 9:1, 2. It is never used to refer to a physical structure. This same thought is expressed in such terms as temple, house, tab-e rnacle, body and building. Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God (1 Corinthians 3:16; 12:27; 2 Corinthians 6:16) You also, as living stones, are being built up a spiritual house, a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices to God through Jesus ChristBut you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. (1 Peter 2:5,9) Afitting summary of this matter is Ephesians 2:1922: Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citi-z ens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built o n the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus C hrist Himself being the Chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being joined together, grows intoa holy temple in the Lord, i n whom you also are being built together for a habitation of God in the Spirit.

He prayed feverishly for God to rescue him, and every day he surveyed carefully the horizon for help,b ut nothing and no one seemed to ever come. Exhausted, he eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to pro-t ect himself from the elements and to store what few possessions he had. One day, after scavenging for food, he arrived home to find his little hut inf lames with smoke billowing into the sky. He felt the w orst had happened; everything was lost. He was struck with grief and angera nd cried aloud, God, how could you do this to me?! E arly the next day, the man awoke to the sound of a ship approaching the island. It had come to rescue him. How did youk now I was here? asked the man of his rescuers. It was easy, they replied. e saw your smoke signal. It is little effort to be h appy when things are going our way. However, w hen things do not go our way, it is often just as easy to get down on ourselves,o thers, or even God. Still, we must remember that G od is an ever-present force in the lives of those who love and obey Him, even in times of pain and sorrow. P aul wrote in Romans 8:28, And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Paul did not abandon God during the tough times. Why? Paul knew that during peace or persecution, God was on his side working to do good for him and all Christians who loved the Lord. The message is simple: If you are a child of God who truly loves the Father, t hen do not get upset the n ext time your little hut is on fire. It might be Gods w ay of blessing you.

C M Y K www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, June 7, 2013Page B9 S olution, B8 Diversions/Puzzles By ROGER MOORE M cClatchy-Tribune News ServiceTheres an unadulterated joy in the re-teaming of those fast-talking WeddingC rashers Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson, a wholesome novelty in their playing laidoff salesmen forced to do what millions of Americansh ave had to do in the past six years reinvent themselves. W eve missed the patter, the Red Bull-fueled banter that was Vaughns bread andb utter before Jennifer Aniston and Fred Claus s ucked away his soul. He came up with this zeitgeist tale of pals Billy (Vaughn)a nd Nick (Wilson), told theyre over and done with w hen the watch company they worked for folds. Face it, the boss (John Goodman) mutters, where youre going youve alreadyb een. Theyre starting over in t heir 40s. That means finding a job any job with a future. No, taking a jobw ith Nickys sisters boorish boyfriend (Will Ferrell, h ilarious) at his mattress store isnt it. To Billy it means landing internships at g lobal tech monolith Google, which has its raping / pillaging corporate image polished in this summer feel-good comedy. B ecause feeling good is what results when fast-talking Billy and charmingwomanizing Nick land as diversity hires in Googlesb est-and-brightest-andyoungest internship program. The boss (amusingly droll Aasif Mandvi) is skeptical. The pretty 30-something workaholic exec (RoseB yrne) is resistant to their charms. O n a campus where Star Wars and Harry Potter are the appropriate cultural touchstones, Billys inclined to give old-school pep talksa bout that little steel-town girl, Ally (Flashdance a nd reassure a troubled colleague, Im your Bill Holden in Stalag 17. I dont get that reference. Google it. The Internship is entirely too long. The misfits that t he lads team up with are a United Colors of Nerd. The well-worn story arc has contests (computer codedebugging and app-inventinga nd Quidditch) to see whose team will be offered jobs at the end of the internship, and team-building exercises that include a strip-clubj aunt and assorted young-onold practical jokes. B y ROGER MOORE McClatchy-Tribune News ServiceJames DeMonacos The Purge is a bloody-minded, heavy-handed satire of life within these violent UnitedS tates. Its a horror film with the occasional visceral thrill the fear of being hunted, the excitement of righteous violence against nameless intruders. But mostly, its just a clumsy lecture about who were becoming: haves vs. have-nots, with the haves armed to the teeth. In the not-distant future, the New Founding Fathers have decreed America has one night of catharsis when we can give in to our most violent impulses. Murder and mayhem abound and first responders have the night off. Basically, youre on your own for The Purge. The well-off can hunt the homeless, the weak and those who dont contribute to society. Or just seek revenge. Others whom well call rich liberals buy massive security systems and hunker down in their fortress McMansions for the night. Ethan Hawke portrays one of the latter, a salesman whos gotten rich off selling armored security systems. Lena Headey plays his resigned-to-this-yearly- purge wife. Max Burkholder and Adelaide Kane are the sensitive son and hormonal daughter whose trusting natures would thwart any security system. B ecause Zoe (Kane let the boyfriend Dad forbids her to see into the house, and Charlie (Burkholder rescues a homeless vet( Edwin Hodge), saving him from a hunt. And that brings vengeful preppies (led by Rhys Wakefield) who were stalking the vet down on their happy home. DeMonaco seems awfully concerned that we wont get his points here, so theres repetitious 24-hour TVcoverage about how it is time to release the beast and purge our American streets, debates over the morality of it, how culling society lowers unemployment and helps the economy. You can see what Hawke and Headey envisioned in this the chance to make a statement for compassion and humanity in the face of the social Darwinism that might create a night like this. But lapses in logic and characterization trip it up at every turn.

DearAbby: I have been dating Vernon fors ix months. We were great together from the d ay we met. It was like wed known each other forever and could talk forh ours. We talked every night and it was amazing. T wo weeks ago, I was raped by a man I thought was a friend. When I told Vernon, he was shocked and didnt know how toh andle it. I was hoping we could get past it, but t wo nights ago he said he can no longer be intimate with me because he feelsl ike he is doing something wrong, or I wont l ike it. He said he loves talking to me and still wants to be friends. W e have continued talking every night, but it is hard for me to do as j ust his friend. Do you think he will be able to g et over these feelings and be with me again? Should I remain friends when I have feelings for him? Wants More in Minnesota DearWants More: If you havent already reported the rape to the police, do it now. The man who did this to youn eeds to be taken out of circulation so he wont h arm another woman. You should be receiving counseling to help you get over what was done to you, and frankly,s o should Vernon. Unless he can stop treating you as though you are untouchable, you should not continue the friendship, because what he is doing is distancing himself when you need his support the most. DearAbby: Next month my husband and I are leaving our 18-yearold son home alone overnight for the first time. We have good neighbors who will keep an eye on things. Although we trust our son, I feel we should let his 16-year-old girlfriends parents know he will have the house to himself for the night. I have never met them and dont want to alarm them by calling out of the blue. Do you think I should call them? What Should I Do? DearWhat: Yes. Call, introduce yourself, and suggest that because your teenagers are involved that you meet in person sometime soon. And while youre making conversation, casually mention that you will be leaving town and your son will be alone overnight for the first time. If you had a 16-year-old daughter, wouldnt you want to know? Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.
