C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING When the first Heartland Triathlon was held in July o f 2006, there were 283 people who plunged into Lake Jackson to start the race. This weekend, more than 650 athletes will flock to downtown SebringS aturday and Sunday for the youth and adult events. Id venture to say the race is one of the largest (economic events in the county, said DanA ndrews of Legacy Bicycle, which he said is a major sponsor of the event. W hile Legacys business does not benefit from the triathlon weekendd irectly people typically arrive with everything they need hotels, motels, restaurants should. The Kenilworth Lodge and Merriots Residence Suites, for instance, reportt hey are booked solid for the weekend, and the Sunset Beach Motel has seen a sharp rise in reservations. According to USATriathlon, the membership organization overseeing the sport, triathlons are gaining steadily in popularity all over. Modern triathlon e vents began during the 1970s, spons ored by the San Diego Track Club. The first event had 46 participants. According to the Sports& Fitness Industry Association, an e stimated 2 million men, women and children completed a triathlon in 2012. There are several reasons triathlons are popular nationally, USATsays: Increased awareness, more peoples eeking to become fit, the ego reward, more events and more children comp eting in events. Cross training, enthusiasts say, also makes the sport popu-l ar. It helps prevent injuries, boredom and burnout. Cherie Starr, the event organizer, said the rising popularity for the Heartland Tri is the result of the effi-c ient way the event is run, the beautiful scenery along the course and the 079099401001 Phone ... 385-6155Fax ... 385-2453Online: www.newssun.com WAUCHULA STATE BANK/Cheryl Hen; 11.25"; 1.5"; Black plus three; process, front strip; 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 3 0 0 3 3 9 9 5 5 NEWS-SUNHighlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927 www.newssun .com Friday-Saturday, June 14-15, 2013Volume 94/Number 71 | 50 cents Sunny, hot Low 92 High 72D etails, A10Up, up and a thud?Leaden Man of Steelhas hard time taking flight REVIEW, B9 CelebrationsB6 ClassifiedsA7 ClubsB6 Crossword PuzzleB9 Dear AbbyB9 Editorial & OpinionA3 Friends & NeighborsB8 Sudoku PuzzleB9 Whats CookingB10 Index Rod Lewis/News-Sun Finance Manager Rachel Osborne tells the Town Council about the recent audit of Lake Placids finances Monday night. By ROD LEWIS News-Sun correspondentLAKE PLACID The town did well on a recent audit of its financial records, Lake Placid Town Council members were told Monday night. When asked by Town Administrator Phil Williams, Finance Manager Rachel Osborne explained that the town had a good audit and that there was one issue finding with the Quickbooks and one budget violation. The finding was an issue with a purchasing technicality. The budget violation was due to a $25,000 transaction that was not amended on the budget. Overall it is a really good audit, Osborne said, going on to explain that the issue has already been corrected for the 2013 audit and that she did not expect any problems going forward. This is a big step up from years past, Mayor John Holbrook said. It will probably take another year or so to get all of the bugs worked out. I know we have work to do, but I think we are headed in the right direction. Town Attorney Bert J. Harris III reported on three parcels of land that the town was interested in for the Interlake Boulevard expansion project. The first property, at Interlake and Green Dragon Drive, was just donated to the town by Dr. James Oxer.

The holiday is recognized in cities around the nation and commemorates June 18-19, 1865. On these days, more than 2,000 federal troops under Union General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas, to enforce the emancipation of slaves. The holiday has been widely recognized in Texas since 1980 and is observed as a state holiday. Currently in the United States, 39 states recognize and observe the holiday each year. Two local organizations The Florida Sportsmen Association and the New Washington Heights Concerned Citizens Inc. have teamed up to bring the family festival back for another consecutive year. The 14th Annual Juneteenth Multicultural Festival will be held Saturday, June 22 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at Firemens Field. Attendees should enter to the festival at Magnolia Avenue near the water tower. Juneteenth marks unity of cultures Celebration set for June 22 in Sebring By BARRYFOSTER N ews-Sun correspondentAVON PARK The offa gain, on-again, new and improved Avon Park city charter is back on the front b urner. Council members in the City of Charm Monday evening made a motion to commit, sending a revisedv ersion of the measure back to a citizens committee for their review. The board was appointed last year to construct a as treamlined and modernized document to replace t he current municipal constitution. C ity Attorney Gerald Buhr made the recommendation, indicating he had a number of other changes he had been working on. We have made a lot of changes since the committee last met, he said. The charter review committee was formed in October of 2011.A ppointed from a list of citizen volunteers, they w ere charged with reviewing and updating the citys current charter. C ouncil members wanted to revamp the docum ent, saying the current charter does not reflect changes in state statutes. I n addition, the current charter language is awkwarda nd in some places confusing. For those reasons, a decision was madet o write the new version using a modern, clearer, s implified style. The charge of the comm ittee was to make a more user-friendly, smaller charter, Mayor Sharon Schuler said. Under the direction of B uhr, the committee last year authored a 10-page AP charter back on the front burner Schuler Council gets look at changes ITS COOL TO BE SWEATY Heartland Triathlon has more than doubled in size since 2006 debut W W a a n n t t t t o o g g o o ? ?W W h h a a t t : : 8thHeartland Triathlon W W h h e e n n : : Kids race is Saturday at 7:30 a.m.; adults race is Sunday at 7 a.m. W W h h e e r r e e : : Most of the action will be in downtown Sebring, especially near the library S ee TRIATHLON, A5 See CHARTER, A6 See JUNETEENTH, A6Swim safelyTips to help avoid danger when you are enjoying the pool this summer LIVING, B10

C M Y K B y SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comS EBRING The membership numbers for the Sebring Historic P reservation Committee will stay the same, for now, however the location requirements for members will be tweaked a little following au nanimous city council decision regarding the committees membership ordinance. Historic Preservation Committee memberC harlotte Pressler approached city council m embers and requested that the number of voting boardm embers for the committee remain at seven. City staff had recommended the board be shrunk to five in order to make ite asier to have a quorum, which has been an issue for the committee. Pressler believed keeping the members at seven andc hanging the quality or expertise of the members would allow for more productive meetings and a better-functioning committee altogether. I would like to have the members remain at seven rather than reducing it tof ive, Pressler said. Itd be good to have a couple of people with expertise in construction, development or architectural history. Ia lready have a few people in mind. P ressler stated that part of the reason the board iss ometimes low on active members is because people outside the city limits are not really interested in joining the commission. Limitso n residency have been set in the ordinance in order to make the committee more manageable and to gain members who might have ani nterest in the historic areas of Sebring. The current ordinance states that the board will be made up of seven members who were required to be residents of the greater S ebring area which is defined as an area being w ithin five miles of the city limits. The new rules will open membership up to b usiness owners inside the city limits, as well. Councilman John Clark said if the changes dont help with meeting atten-d ance, he will want to knock the number of members down to five. This is where this whole issue started, in my opinion,i s the lack of your committee to assemble enough m embers to do business, he said. I would say Im finew ith it, but if it continues as it has Im going to have to revisit this later and reduce the head count. The ordinance will be rew orked by city attorney Bob Swaine before it is formally adopted.

Using a combination of their address and utility billing information, resi-d entswill be able participate in polls posted on the official city website. T he idea of using the Internet to receive input f rom the citizenry came from Councilman Garrett Anderson, who also signedo ff on a program that would require residents use a code i nvolving their utility bills to make certain only city residents would be able to cast ballots in the poll. e did have a lot of disc ussion about only accepting votes from Avon Park r esidents, he said. I really dont see the point in having anonymous votes, thisi s for what the citizens have to say K yle Lynn of Sebring Computers, who serves as the webmaster for the citys I nternet presence, said he would set up the program for council members however they wanted it. He suggested that instead o f a standard yes/no/undecided answer, citi-z ens might be offered a L ikert-type scale, gradi ng their answers from 1-5, or 1-10 ranging from strongly agree to strongly disagree so that city officials might better determineh ow residents felt on a given issue. That would give you more of a range of what people think, Lynn said. A ll questions would go through the city clerk for posting. Council members agreed that data would simply be used as a non-binding, straw poll in an effort to judge public opinion. I think you need to have a statement on there that whatever you write here will be a public record and that anyone will be able to see it, said City Attorney Gerald Buhr. However, council members decided not to put results up on the site for all to see. If they want a copy of it, they can make a public records request, Mayor Sharon Schuler said. Anderson asked if there could be comments allowed, with the ability to answer residents back or clarify city policy should there be any misunderstandings. Nevertheless, there would be only one vote allowed per household. ou can set it at one vote, but you could increase that if the need arises, Lynn said. Lynn assured him that the program could be designed to do that and meet almost any other requirement council members might have. In all, it is a bargain. The cost of instituting the program will only be $450. Lynn said he would roll the administration costs into the ongoing hosting account being charged to the city. e want to try and keep it fair, he said. Council instructed Lynn to come back with specifics at a future meeting.

I knew that I had to pick Daniel up froms chool and he would be getting out early since it was the last day of school and hise xam was earlier in the day. I had become reliant on his older sister to pick him up froms chool and she always kept up better with his early releases than I did. T his particular Thursday was different though. Briana had started worki ng full time earlier in the week and was not available t o pick Daniel up at the end of the school day. It was my turn to take overt hose duties again, and I did without a grumble t hough I worried Id forget. Id done it before, and he wasnt too happy about it. Still it wasnt until I was on my way when the sig-n ificance of it all hit me. Never again would I h ave to drive to the school and pick up one of my children. N ext year, Daniel will be driving himself to and from s chool. Then another thought hit me. Although I joke all the t ime about neither of my children ever moving out, knowing full good and well that some day they will, Im not sure Im reallyr eady for that empty nest. Briana is now 22 and just graduated from the University of Florida. Daniel is going to be 17n ext month and will be a high school senior next y ear. When I was 22 I had a lready bought my first house. When I was 17 I was already thinking about moving out on my own. So now I understand the manyc omments about empty nests that Ive heard my mom make through the y ears. She has also made a lot of comments, along with nearly anyone else I consid-e r close, about how Im stubborn and sometimes too independent for my own good. Y eah. Yeah. Yeah. I know. I realize the children and I still have a little time togethera s one happy family under one roof. However, I know that all children must learns ome independence and spread their wings a little. It doesnt mean we parentsh ave to like it. I also know that I stay r ather busy so Im not likely to be one who forgets how to live as I learn tod eal with an empty nest. I never did let the kids keep m e from doing a whole lot. So many times I just took them with me. Still, that empty nest isnt happening just yet. T he way I see it, I have at least one more year with b oth of the kids still home. After that, its hard to say, but I wouldnt trade any oft he past days and I wont give up any of my future d ays with them. Well just have to figure out a way to deal with anything that c omes our way something weve learned to do quite well. Besides, there is always a chance that Daniels v ehicle wont work and hell need a ride somewhere. Maybe even a ride home from school. After all, I still keep my d ad on speed dial. Happy Fathers Day to a ll you dads out there, and to you moms whove hadt o play the role of both. Romona Washington is publisher of the News-Sun. Shec an be reached at r omona.washington@newssun.com A dose of reality At Random Romona W ashington Controversial change in policy decisionEditor: The Boy Scouts of Americas decision May 23 to open its ranks to gay youths, but not gay leaders, has all the markings of a fiercely contested compromise: It has disappointed many. I sponsored my son and participated with him in the Cub Scouts 40 years ago. I helped him with his projects, such as the Soap Box Derby and shared in a weekend campout. We also later attended the national Boy Scout Jamboree hosted at a nearby state park. We have valued the Scout program, which instills within the young boys essential beliefs and values that were also part of our own ethical, moral and spiritual framework in our home and supported by our churches. During that time there was no issue about the sexual orientation which has evolved through the years that now prevails in our culture which has created great controversy especially with those who are related to a church and faith based community. Of the more than 100,000 Scouting units in the U.S., 70 percent are chartered by religious institutions. Some of the largest sponsors are relatively conservative denominations that have previously supported the broad ban notably the Roman Catholic Church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and Southern Baptist churches. Dismayed scout officials in church organizations are already looking at alternative youth groups as they predict a mass exodus from the BSA. Several churches have cut ties with the Scout troops they sponsored. Baptist churches sponsor Scout units serving more than 100,000 of the BSAs 2.6 million youth members. We are deeply saddened, said Frank Page, president of the Southern Baptist Conventions executive committee, after learning of the result. Homosexual behavior is incompatible with the principles enshrined in the Scout oath and Scout law The Southern Baptist churches are now withdrawing their support of Scout troops and are affiliating instead with the Royal Ambassadors, an existing SBC youth program for boys that combines religious ministry with Scouting-style activities. The Assemblies of God, which oversees units serving more than 2,000 Scouts, said it could no longer support such units and the policy change will lead to a mass exodus from the Boy Scout program. Officials suggested its own Royal Rangers youth group as a positive alternative. There is a template for forming a conservative alternative to a major national youth organization. American Heritage Girls was formed in 1995 as a Christian-oriented option to the Girl Scouts of the USA, and it now claims more than 20,000 members.

Donna Peavy PTO President, APMSChoice is ours to makeEditor: Among those who claim to believe in Jesus Christ today, there has been much watering down of conviction concerning the truth. The tendency today is to believe everything a little, but nothing very much. In fact, those who possess strong religious convictions are more often than not branded as religious fanatics (nuts ness indecision are too often regarded as marks of the well informed. Nothing is more clearly taught in the Word of God than that Jesus came to this world to bring truth. To be sure he was crucified for standing for this truth. Today we attempt to belittle those religious nuts that we come in contact with. Not love them as we have b een told. God loves even me a sinner. Those who believe that doctrinal truth is irrelevant and unnecessary simply need the New Testament again. We read again and again of Gods men condemning false teachers. This may strike you at first as being unchristian. Paul made this clear enough so even I get the message. Paul wrote If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that you have received, let him be accursed Galatians 1:8. What Paul is saying that a man not faithful to sound doctrine to be damned. Do you suppose this could be even me when I do not preach?2 John 1:10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him; 11 for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds. Jesus preached and taught individuals and even multitudes when he was seen and walked among us. He was unmistakably clear, so that you and you and I know of Heaven and also Hell. Jesus said,All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. (The man who stands for nothing will soon fall for anything.) The choice is ours alone to make, be pleasing to God or not. This all can be found in the Gospel, which is for you and I to read and study. Remember Christ died for you and I. Chapman Chamberlin Sebring According to reports, the w oman keeping them thought she was saving their lives. Instead, she was starving them to death. Which leads us to a difficult question: What should bed one about people who hoard and abuse animals while b elieving they are on the side of good, unable see the harm they do? T here are laws in place to deal with the problem, yet h oarding animals is recognized as a mental illness. Should people who are mentally ill be declared criminals and incarcerated? What dow e do about people who cannot control their own destruct ive behavior? Mental health specialists a gree dealing with animal hoarders is not easy. For example, simply removing animals from a home does not solve the problem without treatmentn early 100 percent of hoarders will do so again. W hile in one way animal hoarders are not to blame for what they do, we cannoti gnore the damage they cause. We must intervene. A ccording to the national SPCA, every year approximately 3,500 animal hoarders come to the attention of authorities, affecting at least2 50,000 animals. Worst of all, it is estimated t hat 80 percent of animal hoarders have diseased, dying or dead animals ont heir premises. While Florida does not have laws applying specifically to animal hoarders, state statute 828.13 makes the confinement of animals without sufficient food, water or exercise against the law. Animal cruelty is a firstdegree misdemeanor, punishable by up to a year of incar-c eration; and/or up to a $5,000 fine; and/or up to a y ear of probation. Incarceration by itself, however, is not enough.A nimal hoarders live in a state of denial, unable to see t he truth around them, which is why treatment must be part of a long term cure. We hope the woman in this case gets the help she needs.S adly, that might have to include some time behind b ars to let reality sink in. Animal hoarders may mean well, but theyre dangerous Saturday, 45 cats and dogs were found in a private home in Sebring living in squalid, unhealthy conditions.

C M Y K By LAUREN WELBORN News-Sun correspondentThe sun was not the only thing stirring up some heat, as Sertoma Junior Tour golfers finished up the twod ay, J.W. McFarling Junior Golf Classic at the SpringLake Golf Course on Tuesday. And if the back-andforth, shifting of positions o ver these two days were any indication, this Sertoma season should be a doozy. After the first days events, Parker Griffin was l eading the boys6-8 yearold division with his first day score of 29. After shooting a 35 on day two he was one stroke shy of Jack DuPriests totals core of 63, changing up the ranks from the previous day to put DuPriest in first, followed by Griffin and then Brody Hall. The 9-10 boysdivision was led both days by Billy Carol and Zach Doorlag, who took first and second with an 87 and a 91, respect ively. O n day one of the tournament, Cade Scarborough held on to third place with a 54. Coming up the ranks was J axon Davis, who found himself one stroke under Scarborough to snag third place with a total score of 1 04 which had to be determined by a playoff h ole. Still more heated action w as found in the boys1718 division, which was o riginally led by Jonah Brown, Easton Davis and Bradley Brewer. After the second day, the t ables were turned as Cole Berger rose from his sixthp lace standing to win the division with a two-day s core of 163. Davis managed to keep s econd place locked, with his card of 166. Nipping at Davisheels was Austin Tracy, who b umped himself up to third place with a score of 167. A ll of the other golfers who had previously seeded t hemselves in the top three I ve always enjoyed reading, and one of my favorite subjects is fishing. In particular, bass fishing. My modest library consists of many time-honored fishing classics, written by legends in the fishing world. Buck Perry, Roland Martin, Frank Sargeant anda long list of other notables have provided answers and strategies for catching alls pecies of fish. Now that Im retired and my reading isnt confined to airports, flights and hotelr ooms, Ive had the opportunity to go back and re-read m any of my favorites. Most recently I picked up a copy of Doug Hannons Big Bass Magic, part of t he In-Fisherman Library Series. This is an outstanding book about big bass. Doug Hannon, for those of you who may not know, was often referred to as the Bass Professor. As a biologist dedicating his lifes work to largemouth bass research, he has in many cases dispelled common misconceptions about the most sought-after fish in this country. Studying fish in his 9,000 gallon aquarium, as well as catching more than 400 bass between 10 and 17 pounds, provided him with insights he shares in this great book. Doug Hannon passed away last month at the age of 66, never realizing his goal of catching or raising a new world record bass. The current record largemouth bass caught in the United States was caught by George Perry over 60 years ago in a little oxbow lake in Georgia and weighed 22.4 pounds. Like Doug Hannon and hundreds, or perhaps thousands of other fishermen, I too share his passion for catching a record size bass and re-reading his book has reminded me of tactics Id long since forgotten. A lthough this column is not nearly large enough to mention all the great mater i al in this book, one particul ar section really hit home to m e and I wanted to share it with everyone. Like many fishermen, Ive read the articles about giant bass caught in Mexico, California and Texas and assumed, based on these stories that the next world record would likely come from one of these lakes. But Hannons belief is that the next world record bass will be caught in Florida, and hes pretty specific about where. e hear a lot about exotic, faraway places like Cuba and Honduras, but the odds are that the fish will come from Central or North-central Florida: the 150-mile area from Tampa to Gainesville, specifically. Why? North of this area, cold weather shortens the growing season. South of this area, it gets too hot. In Central Florida where I live, we have an 11 or 12 month growing season for bass, meaning the water temperature causes the bass metabolic processes to be fairly active most of the time. If a bass gets too hot (over 84 degrees F cold blooded creature, it SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, June 14, 2013 Page B3 Courtesy photo A fter trying a tip from some of his reading, Don Norton brought in this 4.14-pound bass on Lake Glenada Monday.

McFarling Junior Golf Classic. McFarling gets Sertoma tour off to hot start See GOLF, Page B3 By PETER ORSI Associated PressHAVANA Australian endurance swimmer Chloe McCardel ended her attempt to swim from Cuba to Florida after 11 hours in the water when she was stung by a jellyfish Wednesday night. It was the fifth failure involving three women swimmers who have tried to make the marathon swim since 2011. Jellyfish stings and strong currents have been the main impediments. Her support team released a statement saying that McCardel stopped her effort to become the first person to swim across the Straits of Florida nonstop without a shark cage due to a severe debilitating jellyfish sting. It said she had been taken on to one of her support vessels and was sailing to Key West. The 28-year-old from Melbourne had hoped to complete the swim in about 60 hours. Her goal, the Florida Keys, lay a little more than 100 miles (160 kilometers northeast of Havana. The sea off Havana was flat and glassy, precisely the ideal conditions that McCardels science team had forecast. The strait has been busy the last three summers, with fellow marathon swimmers Diana Nyad and Penny Palfrey making four failed attempts at the crossing between them since 2011. Australian Susie Maroney successfully made the swim in 1997, although she did it with the benefit of a shark cage. Australian abruptly ends Cuba-Fla. swim

If i t gets too cold, its metabolism automatically slows d own. For a bass to not merely maintain body weight, but to actually grow, takes water in the 50 F to the mid-80s F, which is what our water is like most of the year Even in Lake Okeechobee, its too hot for bass to get really big. You catch a lot of 5 to 9s there; when I moved to Florida Okeechobees lake record was only 13 1/2 pounds. Many states have a record bass bigger than that! So in terms of catching one record fish, you would theoretically have a better chance of catching it in Arkansas or Texas than in Okeechobee. Todays record on Big O is 17 lbs and 3 ounces, but I doubt if this will ever be broken. I dont think the odds are in favor of a lake with hot water It will take a record fish 15 or 16 years to reach the 23-pound class, in my opinion. Fish wont live that long in hot water because their body temperature is too high; theyll burn out after 9 or 10 years. It would be like running your V-6 outboard motor at 6500 rpm for its entire life. You might be leading when you drop out of the race, but youll never make it to the finish line. Hannon goes on to give examples of where to look and when to fish. He also gives his opinion on fishing with artificial baits and live bait. This book is a fascinating read and for anyone targeting big bass, whether theyre on a personal quest for a new state or world record, or theyre simply looking to best their own record, I highly recommend this book which was written back in 1986. As Ive mentioned in the last couple of columns, fishing has gotten a whole lot tougher in the past couple of weeks. The rains have impacted t he normal migration and eating patterns of largem outh bass, and in many c ases, combined with increased water temperatures and a lack of dissolved oxygen in the water, many have moved to more stable conditions in deeper water. Last Saturday drove home the point when Burt Watkins and I fished Lake Istokpoga. We caught a few bass in the same areas where weve caught them in the past, but the bites were few and far between. Sunday and Monday I fished Lake Glenada, a small lake alongside Rt. 27 in Sebring. Ive always considered this to be a Big Bass Lake but so far this year, the biggest fish Ive been able to catch was just shy of 8 pounds. Ive caught a number of big bass there in the past, many over 10 pounds and one lunker over 12. Ive also tangled with but lost a couple that were much bigger. Both days I managed to catch 4 or 5 bass in the reeds, but again, the bites were few. Fishing some deeper water, I caught bigger fish on a plastic worm, but they too were pretty hard to find. Following Doug Hannons advice, as I wrapped up the day on Monday, I tied on a magnum Rapala and trolled it over a point and managed to catch my biggest bass of the day, a 4.14 pound fish in 10 feet of water. Maybe I should pay more attention to what I read. Don Norton is a professional tournament bass fisherman, bass fishing guide, and custom rod builder.

C M Y K DearPharmacist: Please help me and my daughter. I have hot flashes, what is the best herbal supplement to help with that? Are there any home remedies for UTIs (urinary tract infections), and f inally, what can my daughter d o for bloating during her m onthly cycle? Ive heard t hat drinking more water (not l ess) helps, but that seems opposite of common sense. H.T., Denver Answer: One terrific supp lement for hot flashes is s age. You can drink it as a t ea, use the spice or for a s tronger effect, take it as a d ietary supplement like a liqu id herbal extract (which I prefer over capsules because you can adjust dosage). As for hot flashes, there w as a study published in 2011, in Advances in Therapy found that sage helped reduced hot flashes by about 50 percent within four weeks, a nd 64 percent within eight weeks. Sage is well tolerated. I think it could safely be used w ith any medication, or substituted if your doctor approves. Moving on to this urinary tract situation. The burning s ensation, frequency, urgency and pain often come out of nowhere. Chronic sufferers usually have an overgrowth of fungus, such as Candida. Probiotics, probiotics, probiotics. C hronic UTIs are often a sign of undiagnosed diabetes. Test properly for diabetes, including serum insulin and a t hyroid profile (see my Diabetes Without Drugs book f or complete testing information). Now, Phenazopyradine a red dye (medication over-the-counter and can t emporarily relieve bladder pain. Baking soda is a popular, inexpensive home remedy for UTIs, heartburn and gout. Its not a substitute for m edical advice. The recipe is one teaspoon baking soda in one cup of cold water, just mix and drink. Baking soda is very alkaline, so it neutralizes y our acidic urine, which is what causes the pain/burning during a UTI. My column is educational, its not medical advice. Ask your doctor whats safe for you, and be aware, baking soda is contraindicated forp eople with high blood pressure. About your daughters b loating ... like many women, this annoying sympt om provides the perfect excuse to wear sweat pants for five days straight. Iw ould drink more water (not less), but Id avoid carbonate d water and soda pop. If you really want to beat the bloat, limit gassy foods like beans and cabbage during that week. Reduce saltyf oods. If you crave them thats a sign of low adrenals. D ont eat any foods that are sugar-free. Number one, I never recommend arti-f icial sweeteners and number two, these sugar-free foods ( even sugarless gum) might contain sorbitol and maltitol, and those are sugar alcohols. T heyre poorly digested by most people, so they increase your symptoms of digestive upset, diarrhea and bloating.

New information from medical g roups states that by having pap smears in combination with a human papillomavirus (HPV women can safely spread out testing by five years. R ecently, advice on having cervical cancer screenings has varied from medical expert to medical expert.M any advise women to get screened every one to three years. Now the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force,w hich published a new set of guidelines in the Annals of Internal M edicine, state that by undergoing both a Pap smear and an HPVtest together, which has been dubbed co-t esting, women ages 30 to 65 who have had negative results can wait a nother five years before the next test. The American Cancer Society is another organization issuing these revised guidelines. Experts advise that this is the first time that co-testing hasb een suggested and widely pushed, although some doctors have been d oing co-testing on their own for years. The change was based on informat ion that showed more frequent testing for cervical cancer did not dramaticall y lower the numbers of those at risk. Although the tests are safe, fertility risks abound if further testing and proc edures are done as the result of a positive Pap test, which can sometimes be inaccurate. Researchers have also found that many cases of cervical cancer arel inked to HPV. Because cellular changes triggered from HPVare slow-moving, it is not vital to have annual testing. It is possible to find and treat the cancerb efore it becomes dangerous, even if 10 years have passed, says George S awaya, M.D., professor in the University of California, San Francisco, Department of Obstetrics, G ynecology and Reproductive Sciences. Although the guidelines are in place, many women may continue to have annual Pap smears, particularlyb ecause they are used to them and dont want to risk their health. Those who do not rely on their gynecologists as their primary care providers may be more apt to wait longer intervalsb etween testing. The Pap smear is named after G eorge Papanicolaou, a Greek doctor who created the test in 1943 and suggested it could provide crucial early d etection of cervical and uterine cancer. Pap tests became routine in 1955 and have reduced cervical cancer deaths by around 75 percent. W omen who are uncertain about waiting longer than a year between Pap tests can discuss their concerns with their gynecologists or family doctors. Together they can weigh thep ros and cons of adopting a new schedule for cervical cancer screeni ngs.

Metro ServicesF or decades, people have turned to diet soft drinks as a healthier alternative to regular soft drinks. However, consuming diet s oda on a regular basis may have some serious health ramifications, including w eight gain. It may seem counterintuitive to suggest t hat diet sodas may be causing people to gain weight, particularly because these sodas are commonly consumed by people who are trying to lose weight. However, a rtificial sweeteners found in some diet s odas may increase a persons risk of obes ity. Its not entirely what you are eating t hat can cause weight gain but what the body thinks it is eating (or drinking plays a role. T here are two factors at play with regard t o the artificial sweetener conundrum. F irst, The University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio has researched the potential link between obesity and artificial sweeteners. Researchers h ave found that something in the chemical s tructure of these sweeteners alters the way the brain processes the neurotransmitter serotonin. In addition to helping with sleep, mood and other functions in theb ody, serotonin helps tell the body when it i s full. When natural foods and sugars are consumed, serotonin signals to the brain to turn off your bodys appetite. However, artificial sweeteners may prolong the release of serotonin, and your appetite remains in full force long after it should h ave abated. Another component of artificial sweeteners, particularly aspartame, is that these chemicals can trick the body into thinking i t has, in fact, consumed sugar. That trigg ers the pancreas to produce the insulin needed to regulate blood-glucose levels. It also causes the body to store the glucose as fat. This can lead to low blood sugar, which may cause you to eat a sugary treat i n response. Having diet soda or eating a s ugarless item once in a while wont create any long-term effects. But repeatedly relying on artificial sweeteners could affect appetite and change blood sugar levels for g ood. These arent the only consequences to d iet soda and other beverages. Drinking diet soda regularly may affect cardiovascul ar health. According to the American Heart Association, research presented at the American Stroke AssociationsI nternational Stroke Conference found people who drink diet soda every day have a 6 1 percent higher risk of vascular events than those who reported no soda consumption. R egular soda isnt a better alternative. It can contribute to weight gain and cardiovascular issues as well as an increased risk for diabetes. A2011 review published in the journal Circulation stated that a posi-t ive association has been shown between sugar-sweetened soft drink consumption and weight gain in both children and adults. Nutritionists and doctors have advised t hat instead of adding artificial sweeteners to water and other beverages, flavor them w ith lemon or lime juice. Instead of drinking diet soda, opt for unsweetened tea orp lain water. W ebinars are the latest thing in medical education. They let me hear a lecture by world experts live and ask questions, all withoutl eaving my house. Last week I watched a webinar that had some scary and surprising statistics about the use and abuse of opioids (Percocet,L orcet, and Vicodin) in the United States. Opioids are not much of a problem in the rest of the world, but the United Statesc onsumes between 80 and 98 percent of the world supply. The number one cause ofd eath in young adults in the United States is poisoning, with the majority being fromp rescription drug overdose. Doctors feel caught in the m iddle between patient safety and patient satisfaction. Medicare is now usingp atient satisfaction scores as one of the criteria for excell ence for which doctors and hospitals will be rewarded. It is easier to write a prescription for a patient in pain than to spend the time (oftenu ncompensated) to explain the reasons why a combinat ion of medicines and other therapies may be better in the long run. T here are predictors of who will be still using opio ids one to two months after trauma. Patients with a history of PTSD, or those with s ymptoms of depression or anxiety, are at risk. There is no correlation with age, severity of fracture or gender. Astudy in theN etherlands and United States compared pain medication post ankle fracture surgery. Patients in the Netherlands used Tramadol( ULTRAM) and/or Tylenol and in the United States use O xy or Hydrocodone. Patient r eports of pain relief were equal. The r eal problem is not in the short term use after s urgery, but in the chronic pain patient. There are no longt erm studies to show that opioids are effective in this group. Decreased efficacyw ith long term use requiring increasing doses is a problem. Some people developp ain sensitivity. Some studies suggest that people on h igh dose opioids may actually have more pain. For chronic pain the best a pproach is integrated care using physical therapy, other m edications such as antiinflammatories, alternative therapies such as acupuncture, biofeedback/meditation, and TNS units. Area specifici njections such as those done by the pain management d octors for back pain reduce the need for systemic medi cations. The anxiety and depression that accompany chronic pain may require short term counseling with a psychologist or psychiatriste xperienced in chronic pain management. If your pain is acute, opioids are probably OK, but be sure to dispose of any left-o ver medications safely. The drug drop-off days sponsored by local law enforcement are one good way to dispose of your unused med-i cations. If your pain is chronic, talk to your doctor abouta lternatives so that you can return to healthy living. Dr. Diana D.

He sat in the bathtub while she poured the shampoo onto his hair. After lathering up his hair, the mother poured o n some water to remove the shampoo, but the little boy tipped his head down and the shampoo ran righti nto his eyes. The little boy cried because of the sting of the shampoo. The mother explained to her son that if he would just look up at her as she poured the water, then he would avoid getting any shampoo in his eyes. Thel ittle boy agreed, but just a s soon as his mother started to rinse his hair, his fear o vercame his trust and he l ooked down again. N aturally, the shampoo ran into his eyes and, again, t here were more tears. P ractically the same thing happened to the apostle Peter. He and the other disciples were in a boat in the midst of a storm when Jesus came walking to t hem on the water. The story in Matthew 14:24-33r eads, But the boat was already a long distance f rom the land, battered by the waves; for the wind w as contrary. And in the fourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea. When the disciples saw Him walking ont he sea, they were terrified, and said, It is a ghost! A nd they cried out in fear. But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, ake courage, it is I; don ot be afraid.Peter said to Him, Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the waterAnd He s aid, Come!And Peter got out of the boat, and walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But seeing the wind, he became frightened, and beginning t o sink, he cried out, Lord, save me!Immediately J esus stretched out His hand and took hold of him, and said to him, You ofl ittle faith, why did you doubt?When they got i nto the boat, the wind stopped. And those who were in the boat worshiped Him, saying, You are certainly Gods Son! W hen the little boy took his eyes off of his mother, h e got shampoo in his eyes. Why? He did not have enough faith in what hism other said. When Peter took his eyes off of Jesus, h e began to sink in the water. Why? He did not have enough faith in whatJ esus said. When we take our eyes off of God, then we, too, will find ourselves i n trouble. Why? Wealso must have a complete faith i n what He says. God loves us and wants to take care of us, but we must have faith for Him to do so. So, keep your eyes on thep rize!

Call 314-9876 C ontemplate the following human observations: You are an animal, and share a common heritage with earthworms; Humans probably evolved from bacteria that lived more than 4 billion years ago; We are no more than bacteria. The conclusion from these statements is that human life has no value you are worth nothing. Contrast this view with Genesis 1:26-28 which begins with, Let us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness If we have a distorted/perverted understanding/view of our origin, we will have the same about our destiny. Deity made human life inherently more valuable than all other life on earth. Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? (Matthew 6:26 David declared: When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him? (Psalm 8:3,4 The author raises two questions that are often asked: God, why are you even aware that I exist? and Why do you take care of me? The answer is the same today: I know I am somebody cause God dont make no junk! Look again at that great message in John 3:16. But this time consider the world as me for that is the message to over 7 billion precious souls today. For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men (Titus 2:11). that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone (Hebrews 2:9All men. Everyone. Thats me. We have an individual responsibility to respond to that amazing grace. i.e. gift, as seen when Philip explained Jesus from the text of Isaiah 53 to the man riding in the chariot. And the eunuch said, See, here is water. What hinders me from being baptized?Then Philip said, If you believe with all your heart, you mayAnd he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.So he commanded the chariot to stand still. And both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water, and he baptized him (Acts 8:36-38). And we learn he went on his way rejoicing (verse 39This man learned and accepted what each person must understand I know I am somebody. This great message of individual worth is the theme of Gods eternal plan designed before the world began. Who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began (2 Timothy 1:9).

C M Y K www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, June 14, 2013Page B9 Solution, B8 Diversions/Puzzles By JAKE COYLE A PEntertainment WriterIt has been a black eye to H ollywood that throughout this, the unending and increasingly repetitive age oft he superhero blockbuster, the comicsmost iconic son h as eluded its grasp like a bird or, if you will, a plane. New hopes of box-office r iches and franchise serials rests on Zac Snyders 3-D Man of Steel, the latest a ttempt to put Superman back into flight. But S nyders joyless film, laden as if composed of the stuff of its heros metallic nickname, has nothing soaring about it. F lying men in capes is grave business in Snyders solemn Superman. Man of Steel, an origin tale of the DC Comics hero, goes more than two hours before the slightest joke or smirk. T his is not your Superman of red tights, phone booth c hanges, or fortresses of solitude, but one of Christ imagery, Krypton politics a nd spaceships. Who would want to have fun at the movies anyway, when you could instead be taught a lesson about identity from a guy who can shoot laser beams out of his eyes? W orking from a script by Blade scribe David S. G oyer and a story by Goyer and Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan, Snyder has clearly sought to avoid s ome of the expected plotlines and rhythms of the f amiliar Superman tale. Theres a constant urge to push the story to greaters cale a desperate propulsion that will surely excite s ome fans but tire others. Eager fans will likely thrall to the films manyo verlong action set pieces, as Superman battles with Zod and his minions. Theres l ittle creativity to the fight sequences, though, which p low across countless building facades. But Snyder doesnt have the material or the inclination to make Man of Steela s thought-provoking as Nolans Dark Knight trilogy. Superman wrestles with his allegiance to humans or his home planet, but the quandaries of a superpowered man betwixt worldsd oesnt have any real resonance. T he gravity that cloaks Man of Steel is merely an en vogue costume. A t The Movies By TODD McCARTHY The Hollywood ReporterL OS ANGELES The seemingly exhausted grossout comedy genre gets a strange temporary reprieve with This Is the End, an unlikable but weirdly compelling apocalyptic fantasy in which a bunch of young stars and stars-by-affiliation jokingly imagine their own mortality. Asort-of The Day of the Locust centered on successful comic actors, rather than down-and-outers, facing a conflagration in Los Angeles, this is a dark farce thats simultaneously selfdeprecating, self-serving, an occasion to vent about both friends and rivals and to fret about self-worth in a cocooned environment. With everyone here officially playing themselves, the result is like a giant home movie and a reality horror show, different enough from anything thats come before to score with young audiences. W ith the Hangover series outliving its welcome, Judd Apatow moving on to quasi-serious stuff and Johnny-come-latelies like & Over and Movie 43 falling short, outrageous comedies arent what they used to be a few years back. Early on in This Is the End, James Franco and Seth Rogen explore story ideas for a possible Pineapple Express sequel, but its hard to know, five years on, what the public appetite would be even for that. Instead, Rogen and cowriter/co-director Evan Goldberg reached back to 2007 for inspiration, to a nine-minute short they and Jason Stone made called Seth and Jay Versus the Apocalypse. It is said to have cost $3,000 and starred five of the six main actors from the present feature Rogen, Jay Baruchel, F ranco, Jonah Hill and D anny McBride. This Is the End goes places you dont expect it to, exploring the guysrifts and doubts and misgivings just as it wallows in an extravagant lifestyle that inevitably attracts public fascination. It also expresses the anxiety and insecurity of comics conscious of the big issues in life they are expected either to avoid or make fun of in their work. Rogen and Goldberg take the latter approach here, in an immature but sometimes surprisingly upfront way one can interpret seriously. Or not. This Is the End, a Sony/Columbia release, is rated R for crude and sexual content throughout, brief graphic nudity, pervasive language, drug use and some violence. Running time: 107 minutes.

I was happy to see her because Il ike her and havent seen her since my wedding in 2 011. Carrie has been going through a difficult time because of her moth-e rs death two years ago and her fathers remarr iage plans. I know people are prone to do odd things when under stress, but this has me concerned. During thee vening, I went to retrieve an item from my handbag. C arrie was with me, and mentioned she loved my purse and then announceds he was stealing it. I realized it wasnt a joke w hen she dumped the contents of my bag on the kitchen counter in front ofs everal family members. She then handed me $10 and put my purse in her c ar! I was flabbergasted and d idnt know how to react. Although I had mentioned that I bought the bag at a thrift store for less than Carrie gave me, I liked itb ecause it is a vintage item. I dont think a replacement will easily be found. While I was always excited to see Carrie before, I am now leery ofs eeing her again for fear of a repeat of what she d id. Am I wrong to feel offended? Do I have any hope of getting my purse back? Stupefied in New York D earStupefied: Carries behavior was outrageous and may indicate that she has emotional problems that should bea ddressed. That you would be offended is understandable. That you would be so shocked you didnt immediately object is also understandable. The only hope of getting your purse back would be to pay this woman a visit, return her money and tell her its time to return it. If youre up to the challenge, she may agree. But dont count on it. DearAbby: How and when do I tell the guy I just started seeing that I have bipolar disorder? I dont want to make him think Im crazy. On the other hand, I really like him and hope our relationship will grow into something more. I dont want to start it off with a lie.

C M Y K Days spent poolside with the family are fun. But, as a r ecent drowning of a small child in Avon Park demonstrated, they can also be dangerous, especially for children. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, children ages 1 to 4 have the highest drowning rates, and fatal drowning is the second-leading cause of unintentional injury-related death for children ages 1-14. Its no wonder then why parents place such a stronge mphasis on pool safety. The following are some preventative measures parents can take to reduce their childs risk of an accident in the pool. Metro Services Do not consume alcoholAdults should never consume alcohol while children are swimming in the pool. Alcohol can nega-t ively affect judgement, balance and coordination, making it more difficult to respond to a pool e mergency should one occur. In addition, the effects of alcohol are heightened by exposure to the sun and heat, so con-s uming alcohol on hot summer days while kids are swimming in t he pool could be an unnecessary risk. Dont rely on air-filled or foam toysParents should not rely on air-filled flotation d evices such as "water wings" as a safety measure. Such devices can deflate, putting kids at risk, especially if parents are under the assumption that the devices are enough to keep kids safe while they man the grill or mow the lawn. Even if kids wearing flotat ion devices have had swimming lessons, the likelihood kids will panic and forget those lessons if the devices deflate is significant enough that parents should pay constant attention. Pay constant attentionK ids should never be left unattended when in a pool. But accidents happen even w hen parents are nearby. However, how quickly adults or others respond to a child in danger can have a significant impact on the outcome of an emergency situation. Astudy in the medical journal Pediatrics determined that the more quickly someone is able toi ntervene, such as administering CPR, the better the chance of improving the outcome. So parents should r espond as quickly as possible whenever they suspect something has gone wrong in the pool.

But a child who has received formal swimming lessons has a significantly smaller risk of injury or drowning than one whoh as not received formal lessons. A 2009 study published in the Archives o f Pediatrics and Medicine found that participation in formal swimming lessons can reduce the risk of drowningb y 88 percent among children ages 1 to 14 years. Local high schools as w ell as the YMCAoffer swimming lessons for children. Put all toys away after swimmingA pool and its surrounding deck should not have toys lying around, as this only entices children to go into the pool area when Mom and Dad might not be home or watching them. Astudy from the Consumer Product Safety Commission found that most youngc hildren who drowned in pools were last seen in the home and had been out of sight for less than five minutes. Kids can quickly disappear, and it might be too late before parents notice their youngster has jumped into the pool unsupervised. Put all toys awayo nce a swimming session ends, so kids dont feel the urge to go play by the pool unsupervised. SWIM SAFELY THISSUMMER

C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING When the first Heartland Triathlon was held in July o f 2006, there were 283 people who plunged into Lake Jackson to start the race. This weekend, more than 650 athletes will flock to downtown Sebring S aturday and Sunday for the youth and adult events. Id venture to say the race is one of the largest (economic) impact events in the county, said Dan A ndrews of Legacy Bicycle, which he said is a major sponsor of the event. While Legacys business does not benefit from the triathlon weekend d irectly people typically arrive with everything they need hotels, motels, restaurants should. The Kenilworth Lodge and Merriots Residence Suites, for instance, report t hey are booked solid for the weekend, and the Sunset Beach Motel has seen a sharp rise in reservations. According to USATriathlon, the membership organization overseeing the sport, triathlons are gaining steadily in popularity all over. Modern triathlon events began during the 1970s, sponsored by the San Diego Track Club. The first event had 46 participants. According to the Sports & Fitness Industry Association, an estimated 2 million men, women and children completed a triathlon in 2012. There are several reasons triathlons are popular nationally, USATsays: Increased awareness, more people seeking to become fit, the ego reward, more events and more children competing in events. Cross training, enthusiasts say, also makes the sport popular. It helps prevent injuries, boredom and burnout. Cherie Starr, the event organizer, said the rising popularity for the Heartland Tri is the result of the efficient way the event is run, the beautiful scenery along the course and the 079099401001 Phone ... 385-6155 Fax ... 385-2453 Online: www.newssun.com WAUCHULA STATE BANK/Cheryl Hen; 11.25"; 1.5"; Black plus three; process, front strip; 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 3 0 0 3 3 9 9 5 5 NEWS-SUNHighlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927 www.newssun .com Friday-Saturday, June 14-15, 2013 Volume 94/Number 71 | 50 cents Sunny, hot Low 92 High 72Details, A10Up, up and a thud?Leaden Man of Steelhas hard time taking flight REVIEW, B9 CelebrationsB6 Classifieds A7 Clubs B6 Crossword PuzzleB9 Dear Abby B9 Editorial & OpinionA3 Friends & NeighborsB8 Sudoku PuzzleB9 Whats CookingB10 Index Rod Lewis/News-Sun Finance Manager Rachel Osborne tells the Town Council about the recent audit of Lake Placids finances Monday night. By ROD LEWIS News-Sun correspondentLAKE PLACID The town did well on a recent audit of its financial records, Lake Placid Town Council members were told Monday night. When asked by Town Administrator Phil Williams, Finance Manager Rachel Osborne explained that the town had a good audit and that there was one issue finding with the Quickbooks and one budget violation. The finding was an issue with a purchasing technicality. The budget violation was due to a $25,000 transaction that was not amended on the budget. Overall it is a really good audit, Osborne said, going on to explain that the issue has already been corrected for the 2013 audit and that she did not expect any problems going forward. This is a big step up from years past, Mayor John Holbrook said. It will probably take another year or so to get all of the bugs worked out. I know we have work to do, but I think we are headed in the right direction. Town Attorney Bert J. Harris III reported on three parcels of land that the town was interested in for the Interlake Boulevard expansion project. The first property, at Interlake and Green Dragon Drive, was just donated to the town by Dr. James Oxer.

The holiday is recognized in cities around the nation and commemorates June 18-19, 1865. On these days, more than 2,000 federal troops under Union General Gordon Granger arrived in Galveston, Texas, to enforce the emancipation of slaves. The holiday has been widely recognized in Texas since 1980 and is observed as a state holiday. Currently in the United States, 39 states recognize and observe the holiday each year. Two local organizations The Florida Sportsmen Association and the New Washington Heights Concerned Citizens Inc. have teamed up to bring the family festival back for another consecutive year. The 14th Annual Juneteenth Multicultural Festival will be held Saturday, June 22 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at Firemens Field. Attendees should enter to the festival at Magnolia Avenue near the water tower. Juneteenth marks unity of cultures Celebration set for June 22 in Sebring By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentAVON PARK The offagain, on-again, new and improved Avon Park city charter is back on the front burner. Council members in the City of Charm Monday evening made a motion to commit, sending a revised version of the measure back to a citizens committee for their review. The board was appointed last year to construct a a streamlined and modernized document to replace the current municipal constitution. City Attorney Gerald Buhr made the recommendation, indicating he had a number of other changes he had been working on. We have made a lot of changes since the committee last met, he said. The charter review committee was formed in October of 2011. Appointed from a list of citizen volunteers, they were charged with reviewing and updating the citys current charter. Council members wanted to revamp the document, saying the current charter does not reflect changes in state statutes. In addition, the current charter language is awkward and in some places confusing. For those reasons, a decision was made to write the new version using a modern, clearer, simplified style. The charge of the committee was to make a more user-friendly, smaller charter, Mayor Sharon Schuler said. Under the direction of Buhr, the committee last year authored a 10-page AP charter back on the front burner Schuler Council gets look at changes ITS COOL TO BE SWEATY Heartland Triathlon has more than doubled in size since 2006 debut W W a a n n t t t t o o g g o o ? ?W W h h a a t t : : 8thHeartland Triathlon W W h h e e n n : : Kids race is Saturday at 7:30 a.m.; adults race is Sunday at 7 a.m. W W h h e e r r e e : : Most of the action will be in downtown Sebring, especially near the library See TRIATHLON, A5 See CHARTER, A6 See JUNETEENTH, A6Swim safelyTips to help avoid danger when you are enjoying the pool this summer LIVING, B10

C M Y K By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING The membership numbers for the Sebring Historic Preservation Committee will stay the same, for now, however the location requirements for members will be tweaked a little following a unanimous city council decision regarding the committees membership ordinance. Historic Preservation Committee member Charlotte Pressler approached city council members and requested that the number of voting board members for the committee remain at seven. City staff had recommended the board be shrunk to five in order to make it easier to have a quorum, which has been an issue for the committee. Pressler believed keeping the members at seven and changing the quality or expertise of the members would allow for more productive meetings and a better-functioning committee altogether. I would like to have the members remain at seven rather than reducing it to five, Pressler said. Itd be good to have a couple of people with expertise in construction, development or architectural history. I already have a few people in mind. Pressler stated that part of the reason the board is sometimes low on active members is because people outside the city limits are not really interested in joining the commission. Limits on residency have been set in the ordinance in order to make the committee more manageable and to gain members who might have an interest in the historic areas of Sebring. The current ordinance states that the board will be made up of seven members who were required to be residents of the greater Sebring area which is defined as an area being within five miles of the city limits. The new rules will open membership up to business owners inside the city limits, as well. Councilman John Clark said if the changes dont help with meeting attendance, he will want to knock the number of members down to five. This is where this whole issue started, in my opinion, is the lack of your committee to assemble enough members to do business, he said. I would say Im fine with it, but if it continues as it has Im going to have to revisit this later and reduce the head count. The ordinance will be reworked by city attorney Bob Swaine before it is formally adopted.

Eskamani to speak at Democratic Womens Club meetingSEBRING On Saturday, June 22 the Democratic Womens Club of Highlands County will have its membership meeting, beginning at 9:30 a.m. at the Democratic Headquarters, 4216 Sebring Parkway (next to Ruby Tuesdays). Refreshments will be served. All likeminded women are welcome to attend. This months speaker will be Anna Eskamani, who will be speaking on Iranian Feminism and Womens Reproductive Rights in Florida. An Iranian-American and Florida native, Eskamani graduated from the University of Central Florida (UCF) in the spring of 2012 with dual degrees in Political Science and Womens Studies and a Certificate in Service Learning. While an undergraduate Eskamani spent the majority of her time, writing, advocating, and organizing for social justice. She served in leadership positions of many on and off campus groups, ranging from honor societies, to cultural groups, to political organizations.

She continues to be involved with many advocacy groups, including Florida CHAIN and United Global Outreach. She is also a board member of several organizations, including the Orange County League of Women Voters, Orange County Democratic Executive Community Briefs Eskamani Continued on A4 By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentAVON PARK Residents s oon will be able to make their voices heard on issues vital to the City of Charm however, there will be no such thing as a secret ball ot. Using a combination of their address and utility billing information, resid entswill be able participate in polls posted on the official city website. The idea of using the Internet to receive input f rom the citizenry came from Councilman Garrett Anderson, who also signed o ff on a program that would require residents use a code i nvolving their utility bills to make certain only city residents would be able to cast ballots in the poll. We did have a lot of disc ussion about only accepting votes from Avon Park r esidents, he said. I really dont see the point in having anonymous votes, this i s for what the citizens have to say. Kyle Lynn of Sebring Computers, who serves as the webmaster for the citys I nternet presence, said he would set up the program for council members however they wanted it. He suggested that instead ofa standard yes/no/undecided answer, citizens might be offered a Likert-type scale, gradi ng their answers from 1-5, or 1-10 ranging from strongly agree to strongly disagree so that city officials might better determine h ow residents felt on a given issue. That would give you more of a range of what people think, Lynn said. All questions would go through the city clerk for posting. Council members agreed that data would simply be used as a non-binding, straw poll in an effort to judge public opinion. I think you need to have a statement on there that whatever you write here will be a public record and that anyone will be able to see it, said City Attorney Gerald Buhr. However, council members decided not to put results up on the site for all to see. If they want a copy of it, they can make a public records request, Mayor Sharon Schuler said. Anderson asked if there could be comments allowed, with the ability to answer residents back or clarify city policy should there be any misunderstandings. Nevertheless, there would be only one vote allowed per household. You can set it at one vote, but you could increase that if the need arises, Lynn said. Lynn assured him that the program could be designed to do that and meet almost any other requirement council members might have. In all, it is a bargain. The cost of instituting the program will only be $450. Lynn said he would roll the administration costs into the ongoing hosting account being charged to the city. We want to try and keep it fair, he said. Council instructed Lynn to come back with specifics at a future meeting.

I knew that I had to pick Daniel up from school and he would be getting out early since it was the last day of school and his exam was earlier in the day. I had become reliant on his older sister to pick him up from school and she always kept up better with his early releases than I did. This particular Thursday was different though. Briana had started working full time earlier in the week and was not available to pick Daniel up at the end of the school day. It was my turn to take over those duties again, and I did without a grumble though I worried Id forget. Id done it before, and he wasnt too happy about it. Still it wasnt until I was on my way when the significance of it all hit me. Never again would I have to drive to the school and pick up one of my children. Next year, Daniel will be driving himself to and from school. Then another thought hit me. Although I joke all the time about neither of my children ever moving out, knowing full good and well that some day they will, Im not sure Im really ready for that empty nest. Briana is now 22 and just graduated from the University of Florida. Daniel is going to be 17 next month and will be a high school senior next year. When I was 22 I had already bought my first house. When I was 17 I was already thinking about moving out on my own. So now I understand the many comments about empty nests that Ive heard my mom make through the years. She has also made a lot of comments, along with nearly anyone else I consider close, about how Im stubborn and sometimes too independent for my own good. Y eah. Yeah. Yeah. I know. I realize the children and I still have a little time together as one happy family under one roof. However, I know that all children must learn some independence and spread their wings a little. It doesnt mean we parents have to like it. I also know that I stay rather busy so Im not likely to be one who forgets how to live as I learn to deal with an empty nest. I never did let the kids keep me from doing a whole lot. So many times I just took them with me. Still, that empty nest isnt happening just yet. The way I see it, I have at least one more year with both of the kids still home. After that, its hard to say, but I wouldnt trade any of the past days and I wont give up any of my future days with them. Well just have to figure out a way to deal with anything that comes our way something weve learned to do quite well. Besides, there is always a chance that Daniels vehicle wont work and hell need a ride somewhere. Maybe even a ride home from school. After all, I still keep my dad on speed dial. Happy Fathers Day to all you dads out there, and to you moms whove had to play the role of both. Romona Washington is publisher of the News-Sun. She can be reached at r omona.washington@newssun.com A dose of reality At Random Romona Washington Controversial change in policy decisionEditor: The Boy Scouts of Americas decision May 23 to open its ranks to gay youths, but not gay leaders, has all the markings of a fiercely contested compromise: It has disappointed many. I sponsored my son and participated with him in the Cub Scouts 40 years ago. I helped him with his projects, such as the Soap Box Derby and shared in a weekend campout. We also later attended the national Boy Scout Jamboree hosted at a nearby state park. We have valued the Scout program, which instills within the young boys essential beliefs and values that were also part of our own ethical, moral and spiritual framework in our home and supported by our churches. During that time there was no issue about the sexual orientation which has evolved through the years that now prevails in our culture which has created great controversy especially with those who are related to a church and faith based community. Of the more than 100,000 Scouting units in the U.S., 70 percent are chartered by religious institutions. Some of the largest sponsors are relatively conservative denominations that have previously supported the broad ban notably the Roman Catholic Church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and Southern Baptist churches. Dismayed scout officials in church organizations are already looking at alternative youth groups as they predict a mass exodus from the BSA. Several churches have cut ties with the Scout troops they sponsored. Baptist churches sponsor Scout units serving more than 100,000 of the BSAs 2.6 million youth members. We are deeply saddened, said Frank Page, president of the Southern Baptist Conventions executive committee, after learning of the result. Homosexual behavior is incompatible with the principles enshrined in the Scout oath and Scout law. The Southern Baptist churches are now withdrawing their support of Scout troops and are affiliating instead with the Royal Ambassadors, an existing SBC youth program for boys that combines religious ministry with Scouting-style activities. The Assemblies of God, which oversees units serving more than 2,000 Scouts, said it could no longer support such units and the policy change will lead to a mass exodus from the Boy Scout program. Officials suggested its own Royal Rangers youth group as a positive alternative. There is a template for forming a conservative alternative to a major national youth organization. American Heritage Girls was formed in 1995 as a Christian-oriented option to the Girl Scouts of the USA, and it now claims more than 20,000 members.

Thank you for helping us to show appreciation for all they do each and every day to help our children. Thank you for supporting our school. Donna Peavy PTO President, APMSChoice is ours to makeEditor: Among those who claim to believe in Jesus Christ today, there has been much watering down of conviction concerning the truth. The tendency today is to believe everything a little, but nothing very much. In fact, those who possess strong religious convictions are more often than not branded as religious fanatics (nuts), while vagueness indecision are too often regarded as marks of the well informed. Nothing is more clearly taught in the Word of God than that Jesus came to this world to bring truth. To be sure he was crucified for standing for this truth. Today we attempt to belittle those religious nuts that we come in contact with. Not love them as we have been told. God loves even me a sinner. Those who believe that doctrinal truth is irrelevant and unnecessary simply need the New Testament again. We read again and again of Gods men condemning false teachers. This may strike you at first as being unchristian. Paul made this clear enough so even I get the message. Paul wrote If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that you have received, let him be accursed Galatians 1:8. What Paul is saying that a man not faithful to sound doctrine to be damned. Do you suppose this could be even me when I do not preach? 2 John 1:10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him; 11 for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds. Jesus preached and taught individuals and even multitudes when he was seen and walked among us. He was unmistakably clear, so that you and you and I know of Heaven and also Hell. Jesus said,All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. (The man who stands for nothing will soon fall for anything.) The choice is ours alone to make, be pleasing to God or not. This all can be found in the Gospel, which is for you and I to read and study. Remember Christ died for you and I. Chapman Chamberlin Sebring According to reports, the w oman keeping them thought she was saving their lives. Instead, she was starving them to death. Which leads us to a difficult question: What should be d one about people who hoard and abuse animals while b elieving they are on the side of good, unable see the harm they do? There are laws in place to deal with the problem, yet h oarding animals is recognized as a mental illness. Should people who are mentally ill be declared criminals and incarcerated? What do w edo about people who cannot control their own destruct ive behavior? Mental health specialists agree dealing with animal hoarders is not easy. For example, simply removing animals from a home does not solve the problem without treatment nearly 100 percent of hoarders will do so again. While in one way animal hoarders are not to blame for what they do, we cannot ignore the damage they cause. We must intervene. According to the national SPCA, every year approximately 3,500 animal hoarders come to the attention of authorities, affecting at least 250,000 animals. Worst of all, it is estimated that 80 percent of animal hoarders have diseased, dying or dead animals on their premises. While Florida does not have laws applying specifically to animal hoarders, state statute 828.13 makes the confinement of animals without sufficient food, water or exercise against the law. Animal cruelty is a firstdegree misdemeanor, punishable by up to a year of incarceration; and/or up to a $5,000 fine; and/or up to a year of probation. Incarceration by itself, however, is not enough. Animal hoarders live in a state of denial, unable to see the truth around them, which is why treatment must be part of a long term cure. We hope the woman in this case gets the help she needs. Sadly, that might have to include some time behind bars to let reality sink in. Animal hoarders may mean well, but theyre dangerous Saturday, 45 cats and dogs were found in a private home in Sebring living in squalid, unhealthy conditions.

Southbound detour: Drivers wishing to travel south on Ridgewood Drive (State Road 17) through the downtown area will instead need to turn left onto the Sebring Parkway following it to Kenilworth Boulevard where theyll turn right.

However, the new version was pulled off the ballot this past August prior to the election due to problems in the document. We did everything we could to get it ready, Charter Review Committee chairman George Hall said at the time. But wording and printing problems emerged during the charters final reading, requiring corrections. Since that time, Buhr has gone through the document, making changes deemed necessary to make it ready for voters. The version he showed to the city council Monday still showed the strike throughs and highlighted language to demonstrate where the document had been amended or changed. The improved charter was written with an eye toward removing archaic and useless provisions, rewording and reorganizing charter language, as well as eliminating Civil Service provisions, deleting the ability for employees to appeal directl y to the council, removing the authority to divide the city into wards and amending the qualifications to run for office, among other changes. Committee members will receive both original and corrected copies to peruse before their next meeting.

C M Y K By LAUREN WELBORN News-Sun correspondentThe sun was not the only thing stirring up some heat, as Sertoma Junior Tour golfers finished up the twod ay, J.W. McFarling Junior Golf Classic at the SpringLake Golf Course on Tuesday. And if the back-andforth, shifting of positions o ver these two days were any indication, this Sertoma season should be a doozy. After the first days events, Parker Griffin was l eading the boys6-8 yearold division with his first day score of 29. After shooting a 35 on day two he was one stroke shy of Jack DuPriests total s core of 63, changing up the ranks from the previous day to put DuPriest in first, followed by Griffin and then Brody Hall. The 9-10 boysdivision was led both days by Billy Carol and Zach Doorlag, who took first and second with an 87 and a 91, respect ively. On day one of the tournament, Cade Scarborough held on to third place with a 54. Coming up the ranks was Jaxon Davis, who found himself one stroke under Scarborough to snag third place with a total score of 104 which had to be determined by a playoff hole. Still more heated action was found in the boys1718 division, which was originally led by Jonah Brown, Easton Davis and Bradley Brewer. After the second day, the tables were turned as Cole Berger rose from his sixthplace standing to win the division with a two-day score of 163. Davis managed to keep second place locked, with his card of 166. Nipping at Davisheels was Austin Tracy, who bumped himself up to third place with a score of 167. All of the other golfers who had previously seeded themselves in the top three Ive always enjoyed reading, and one of my favorite subjects is fishing. In particular, bass fishing. My modest library consists of many time-honored fishing classics, written by legends in the fishing world. Buck Perry, Roland Martin, Frank Sargeant and a long list of other notables have provided answers and strategies for catching all species of fish. Now that Im retired and my reading isnt confined to airports, flights and hotel rooms, Ive had the opportunity to go back and re-read many of my favorites. Most recently I picked up a copy of Doug Hannons Big Bass Magic, part of the In-Fisherman Library Series. This is an outstanding book about big bass. Doug Hannon, for those of you who may not know, was often referred to as the Bass Professor. As a biologist dedicating his lifes work to largemouth bass research, he has in many cases dispelled common misconceptions about the most sought-after fish in this country. Studying fish in his 9,000 gallon aquarium, as well as catching more than 400 bass between 10 and 17 pounds, provided him with insights he shares in this great book. Doug Hannon passed away last month at the age of 66, never realizing his goal of catching or raising a new world record bass. The current record largemouth bass caught in the United States was caught by George Perry over 60 years ago in a little oxbow lake in Georgia and weighed 22.4 pounds. Like Doug Hannon and hundreds, or perhaps thousands of other fishermen, I too share his passion for catching a record size bass and re-reading his book has reminded me of tactics Id long since forgotten. Although this column is not nearly large enough to mention all the great mater ial in this book, one particular section really hit home to me and I wanted to share it with everyone. Like many fishermen, Ive read the articles about giant bass caught in Mexico, California and Texas and assumed, based on these stories that the next world record would likely come from one of these lakes. But Hannons belief is that the next world record bass will be caught in Florida, and hes pretty specific about where. We hear a lot about exotic, faraway places like Cuba and Honduras, but the odds are that the fish will come from Central or North-central Florida: the 150-mile area from Tampa to Gainesville, specifically. Why? North of this area, cold weather shortens the growing season. South of this area, it gets too hot. In Central Florida where I live, we have an 11 or 12 month growing season for bass, meaning the water temperature causes the bass metabolic processes to be fairly active most of the time. If a bass gets too hot (over 84 degrees F), being a cold blooded creature, it SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Friday, June 14, 2013 Page B3 Courtesy photo After trying a tip from some of his reading, Don Norton brought in this 4.14-pound bass on Lake Glenada Monday.

McFarling Junior Golf Classic. McFarling gets Sertoma tour off to hot start See GOLF, Page B3 By PETER ORSI Associated PressHAVANA Australian endurance swimmer Chloe McCardel ended her attempt to swim from Cuba to Florida after 11 hours in the water when she was stung by a jellyfish Wednesday night. It was the fifth failure involving three women swimmers who have tried to make the marathon swim since 2011. Jellyfish stings and strong currents have been the main impediments. Her support team released a statement saying that McCardel stopped her effort to become the first person to swim across the Straits of Florida nonstop without a shark cage due to a severe debilitating jellyfish sting. It said she had been taken on to one of her support vessels and was sailing to Key West. The 28-year-old from Melbourne had hoped to complete the swim in about 60 hours. Her goal, the Florida Keys, lay a little more than 100 miles (160 kilometers) to the northeast of Havana. The sea off Havana was flat and glassy, precisely the ideal conditions that McCardels science team had forecast. The strait has been busy the last three summers, with fellow marathon swimmers Diana Nyad and Penny Palfrey making four failed attempts at the crossing between them since 2011. Australian Susie Maroney successfully made the swim in 1997, although she did it with the benefit of a shark cage. Australian abruptly ends Cuba-Fla. swim

If i t gets too cold, its metabolism automatically slows d own. For a bass to not merely maintain body weight, but to actually grow, takes water in the 50 F to the mid-80s F, which is what our water is like most of the year. Even in Lake Okeechobee, its too hot for bass to get really big. You catch a lot of 5 to 9s there; when I moved to Florida Okeechobees lake record was only 13 1/2 pounds. Many states have a record bass bigger than that! So in terms of catching one record fish, you would theoretically have a better chance of catching it in Arkansas or Texas than in Okeechobee. Todays record on Big O is 17 lbs and 3 ounces, but I doubt if this will ever be broken. I dont think the odds are in favor of a lake with hot water. It will take a record fish 15 or 16 years to reach the 23-pound class, in my opinion. Fish wont live that long in hot water because their body temperature is too high; theyll burn out after 9 or 10 years. It would be like running your V-6 outboard motor at 6500 rpm for its entire life. You might be leading when you drop out of the race, but youll never make it to the finish line. Hannon goes on to give examples of where to look and when to fish. He also gives his opinion on fishing with artificial baits and live bait. This book is a fascinating read and for anyone targeting big bass, whether theyre on a personal quest for a new state or world record, or theyre simply looking to best their own record, I highly recommend this book which was written back in 1986. As Ive mentioned in the last couple of columns, fishing has gotten a whole lot tougher in the past couple of weeks. The rains have impacted the normal migration and eating patterns of largemouth bass, and in many cases, combined with increased water temperatures and a lack of dissolved oxygen in the water, many have moved to more stable conditions in deeper water. Last Saturday drove home the point when Burt Watkins and I fished Lake Istokpoga. We caught a few bass in the same areas where weve caught them in the past, but the bites were few and far between. Sunday and Monday I fished Lake Glenada, a small lake alongside Rt. 27 in Sebring. Ive always considered this to be a Big Bass Lake but so far this year, the biggest fish Ive been able to catch was just shy of 8 pounds. Ive caught a number of big bass there in the past, many over 10 pounds and one lunker over 12. Ive also tangled with but lost a couple that were much bigger. Both days I managed to catch 4 or 5 bass in the reeds, but again, the bites were few. Fishing some deeper water, I caught bigger fish on a plastic worm, but they too were pretty hard to find. Following Doug Hannons advice, as I wrapped up the day on Monday, I tied on a magnum Rapala and trolled it over a point and managed to catch my biggest bass of the day, a 4.14 pound fish in 10 feet of water. Maybe I should pay more attention to what I read. Don Norton is a professional tournament bass fisherman, bass fishing guide, and custom rod builder.

C M Y K DearPharmacist: Please help me and my daughter. I have hot flashes, what is the best herbal supplement to help with that? Are there any home remedies for UTIs (urinary tract infections), and f inally, what can my daughter d o for bloating during her m onthly cycle? Ive heard t hat drinking more water (not l ess) helps, but that seems opposite of common sense. H.T., Denver Answer: One terrific supp lement for hot flashes is s age. You can drink it as a t ea, use the spice or for a s tronger effect, take it as a d ietary supplement like a liqu id herbal extract (which I prefer over capsules because you can adjust dosage). As for hot flashes, there w as a study published in 2011, in Advances in Therapy found that sage helped reduced hot flashes by about 50 percent within four weeks, a nd 64 percent within eight weeks. Sage is well tolerated. I think it could safely be used w ith any medication, or substituted if your doctor approves. Moving on to this urinary tract situation. The burning s ensation, frequency, urgency and pain often come out of nowhere. Chronic sufferers usually have an overgrowth of fungus, such as Candida. Probiotics, probiotics, probiotics. Chronic UTIs are often a sign of undiagnosed diabetes. Test properly for diabetes, including serum insulin and a t hyroid profile (see my Diabetes Without Drugs book f or complete testing information). Now, Phenazopyradine a red dye (medication) is sold over-the-counter and can t emporarily relieve bladder pain. Baking soda is a popular, inexpensive home remedy for UTIs, heartburn and gout. Its not a substitute for m edical advice. The recipe is one teaspoon baking soda in one cup of cold water, just mix and drink. Baking soda is very alkaline, so it neutralizes y our acidic urine, which is what causes the pain/burning during a UTI. My column is educational, its not medical advice. Ask your doctor whats safe for you, and be aware, baking soda is contraindicated for people with high blood pressure. About your daughters bloating ... like many women, this annoying symptom provides the perfect excuse to wear sweat pants for five days straight. I would drink more water (not less), but Id avoid carbonated water and soda pop. If you really want to beat the bloat, limit gassy foods like beans and cabbage during that week. Reduce salty foods. If you crave them thats a sign of low adrenals. Dont eat any foods that are sugar-free. Number one, I never recommend artificial sweeteners and number two, these sugar-free foods (even sugarless gum) might contain sorbitol and maltitol, and those are sugar alcohols. Theyre poorly digested by most people, so they increase your symptoms of digestive upset, diarrhea and bloating.

New information from medical groups states that by having pap smears in combination with a human papillomavirus (HPV) test, many women can safely spread out testing by five years. Recently, advice on having cervical cancer screenings has varied from medical expert to medical expert. Many advise women to get screened every one to three years. Now the U.S. Preventative Services Task Force, which published a new set of guidelines in the Annals of Internal Medicine, state that by undergoing both a Pap smear and an HPVtest together, which has been dubbed cotesting, women ages 30 to 65 who have had negative results can wait another five years before the next test. The American Cancer Society is another organization issuing these revised guidelines. Experts advise that this is the first time that co-testing has been suggested and widely pushed, although some doctors have been doing co-testing on their own for years. The change was based on information that showed more frequent testing for cervical cancer did not dramatically lower the numbers of those at risk. Although the tests are safe, fertility risks abound if further testing and procedures are done as the result of a positive Pap test, which can sometimes be inaccurate. Researchers have also found that many cases of cervical cancer are linked to HPV. Because cellular changes triggered from HPVare slow-moving, it is not vital to have annual testing. It is possible to find and treat the cancer before it becomes dangerous, even if 10 years have passed, says George Sawaya, M.D., professor in the University of California, San Francisco, Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences. Although the guidelines are in place, many women may continue to have annual Pap smears, particularly because they are used to them and dont want to risk their health. Those who do not rely on their gynecologists as their primary care providers may be more apt to wait longer intervals between testing. The Pap smear is named after George Papanicolaou, a Greek doctor who created the test in 1943 and suggested it could provide crucial early detection of cervical and uterine cancer. Pap tests became routine in 1955 and have reduced cervical cancer deaths by around 75 percent. W omen who are uncertain about waiting longer than a year between Pap tests can discuss their concerns with their gynecologists or family doctors. Together they can weigh the pros and cons of adopting a new schedule for cervical cancer screenings.

Metro ServicesFor decades, people have turned to diet soft drinks as a healthier alternative to regular soft drinks. However, consuming diet s oda on a regular basis may have some serious health ramifications, including w eight gain. It may seem counterintuitive to suggest t hat diet sodas may be causing people to gain weight, particularly because these sodas are commonly consumed by people who are trying to lose weight. However, a rtificial sweeteners found in some diet s odas may increase a persons risk of obes ity. Its not entirely what you are eating t hat can cause weight gain but what the body thinks it is eating (or drinking) that plays a role. There are two factors at play with regard t o the artificial sweetener conundrum. F irst, The University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio has researched the potential link between obesity and artificial sweeteners. Researchers h ave found that something in the chemical s tructure of these sweeteners alters the way the brain processes the neurotransmitter serotonin. In addition to helping with sleep, mood and other functions in the b ody, serotonin helps tell the body when it i s full. When natural foods and sugars are consumed, serotonin signals to the brain to turn off your bodys appetite. However, artificial sweeteners may prolong the release of serotonin, and your appetite remains in full force long after it should h ave abated. Another component of artificial sweeteners, particularly aspartame, is that these chemicals can trick the body into thinking i t has, in fact, consumed sugar. That trigg ers the pancreas to produce the insulin needed to regulate blood-glucose levels. It also causes the body to store the glucose as fat. This can lead to low blood sugar, which may cause you to eat a sugary treat i n response. Having diet soda or eating a s ugarless item once in a while wont create any long-term effects. But repeatedly relying on artificial sweeteners could affect appetite and change blood sugar levels for g ood. These arent the only consequences to diet soda and other beverages. Drinking diet soda regularly may affect cardiovascular health. According to the American Heart Association, research presented at the American Stroke Associations International Stroke Conference found people who drink diet soda every day have a 61 percent higher risk of vascular events than those who reported no soda consumption. Regular soda isnt a better alternative. It can contribute to weight gain and cardiovascular issues as well as an increased risk for diabetes. A2011 review published in the journal Circulation stated that a positive association has been shown between sugar-sweetened soft drink consumption and weight gain in both children and adults. Nutritionists and doctors have advised that instead of adding artificial sweeteners to water and other beverages, flavor them with lemon or lime juice. Instead of drinking diet soda, opt for unsweetened tea or plain water. W ebinars are the latest thing in medical education. They let me hear a lecture by world experts live and ask questions, all without leaving my house. Last week I watched a webinar that had some scary and surprising statistics about the use and abuse of opioids (Percocet, Lorcet, and Vicodin) in the United States. Opioids are not much of a problem in the rest of the world, but the United States consumes between 80 and 98 percent of the world supply. The number one cause of death in young adults in the United States is poisoning, with the majority being from prescription drug overdose. Doctors feel caught in the middle between patient safety and patient satisfaction. Medicare is now using patient satisfaction scores as one of the criteria for excellence for which doctors and hospitals will be rewarded. It is easier to write a prescription for a patient in pain than to spend the time (often uncompensated) to explain the reasons why a combination of medicines and other therapies may be better in the long run. There are predictors of who will be still using opioids one to two months after trauma. Patients with a history of PTSD, or those with symptoms of depression or anxiety, are at risk. There is no correlation with age, severity of fracture or gender. Astudy in the Netherlands and United States compared pain medication post ankle fracture surgery. Patients in the Netherlands used Tramadol (ULTRAM) and/or Tylenol and in the United States use Oxy or Hydrocodone. Patient reports of pain relief were equal. The real problem is not in the short term use after s urgery, but in the chronic pain patient. There are no long term studies to show that opioids are effective in this group. Decreased efficacy with long term use requiring increasing doses is a problem. Some people develop pain sensitivity. Some studies suggest that people on high dose opioids may actually have more pain. For chronic pain the best approach is integrated care using physical therapy, other medications such as antiinflammatories, alternative therapies such as acupuncture, biofeedback/meditation, and TNS units. Area specific injections such as those done by the pain management doctors for back pain reduce the need for systemic medications. The anxiety and depression that accompany chronic pain may require short term counseling with a psychologist or psychiatrist experienced in chronic pain management. If your pain is acute, opioids are probably OK, but be sure to dispose of any leftover medications safely. The drug drop-off days sponsored by local law enforcement are one good way to dispose of your unused medications. If your pain is chronic, talk to your doctor about alternatives so that you can return to healthy living. Dr. Diana D.

He sat in the bathtub while she poured the shampoo onto his hair. After lathering up his hair, the mother poured o n some water to remove the shampoo, but the little boy tipped his head down and the shampoo ran right i nto his eyes. The little boy cried because of the sting of the shampoo. The mother explained to her son that if he would just look up at her as she poured the water, then he would avoid getting any shampoo in his eyes. The l ittle boy agreed, but just a s soon as his mother started to rinse his hair, his fear o vercame his trust and he l ooked down again. N aturally, the shampoo ran into his eyes and, again, t here were more tears. Practically the same thing happened to the apostle Peter. He and the other disciples were in a boat in the midst of a storm when Jesus came walking to t hem on the water. The story in Matthew 14:24-33 r eads, But the boat was already a long distance f rom the land, battered by the waves; for the wind w as contrary. And in the fourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea. When the disciples saw Him walking on t he sea, they were terrified, and said, It is a ghost! A nd they cried out in fear. But immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, Take courage, it is I; do n otbe afraid.Peter said to Him, Lord, if it is You, command me to come to You on the water.And He s aid, Come!And Peter got out of the boat, and walked on the water and came toward Jesus. But seeing the wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, Lord, save me!Immediately Jesus stretched out His hand and took hold of him, and said to him, You of little faith, why did you doubt?When they got into the boat, the wind stopped. And those who were in the boat worshiped Him, saying, You are certainly Gods Son! When the little boy took his eyes off of his mother, he got shampoo in his eyes. Why? He did not have enough faith in what his mother said. When Peter took his eyes off of Jesus, he began to sink in the water. Why? He did not have enough faith in what Jesus said. When we take our eyes off of God, then we, too, will find ourselves in trouble. Why? Wealso must have a complete faith in what He says. God loves us and wants to take care of us, but we must have faith for Him to do so. So, keep your eyes on the prize!

Call 314-9876 Contemplate the following human observations: You are an animal, and share a common heritage with earthworms; Humans probably evolved from bacteria that lived more than 4 billion years ago; We are no more than bacteria. The conclusion from these statements is that human life has no value you are worth nothing. Contrast this view with Genesis 1:26-28 which begins with, Let us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness If we have a distorted/perverted understanding/view of our origin, we will have the same about our destiny. Deity made human life inherently more valuable than all other life on earth. Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? (Matthew 6:26) David declared: When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him, and the son of man that You visit him? (Psalm 8:3,4) The author raises two questions that are often asked: God, why are you even aware that I exist? and Why do you take care of me? The answer is the same today: I know I am somebody cause God dont make no junk! Look again at that great message in John 3:16. But this time consider the world as me for that is the message to over 7 billion precious souls today. For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men (Titus 2:11). that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone (Hebrews 2:9). All men. Everyone. Thats me. We have an individual responsibility to respond to that amazing grace. i.e. gift, as seen when Philip explained Jesus from the text of Isaiah 53 to the man riding in the chariot. And the eunuch said, See, here is water. What hinders me from being baptized?Then Philip said, If you believe with all your heart, you may.And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.So he commanded the chariot to stand still. And both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water, and he baptized him (Acts 8:36-38). And we learn he went on his way rejoicing (verse 39). This man learned and accepted what each person must understand I know I am somebody. This great message of individual worth is the theme of Gods eternal plan designed before the world began. Who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began (2 Timothy 1:9). Wow! This is needed information from the Makers operating manual The Bible. Read and heed. Frank Parker can be contacted at frankparker27@gmail.com I know I am somebody Guest Column Frank Parker

C M Y K www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, June 14, 2013Page B9 Solution, B8 Diversions/Puzzles By JAKE COYLE APEntertainment WriterIt has been a black eye to Hollywood that throughout this, the unending and increasingly repetitive age of the superhero blockbuster, the comicsmost iconic son has eluded its grasp like a bird or, if you will, a plane. New hopes of box-office riches and franchise serials rests on Zac Snyders 3-D Man of Steel, the latest attempt to put Superman back into flight. But Snyders joyless film, laden as if composed of the stuff of its heros metallic nickname, has nothing soaring about it. Flying men in capes is grave business in Snyders solemn Superman. Man of Steel, an origin tale of the DC Comics hero, goes more than two hours before the slightest joke or smirk. This is not your Superman of red tights, phone booth changes, or fortresses of solitude, but one of Christ imagery, Krypton politics and spaceships. Who would want to have fun at the movies anyway, when you could instead be taught a lesson about identity from a guy who can shoot laser beams out of his eyes? W orking from a script by Blade scribe David S. Goyer and a story by Goyer and Dark Knight director Christopher Nolan, Snyder has clearly sought to avoid some of the expected plotlines and rhythms of the familiar Superman tale. Theres a constant urge to push the story to greater scale a desperate propulsion that will surely excite some fans but tire others. Eager fans will likely thrall to the films many overlong action set pieces, as Superman battles with Zod and his minions. Theres little creativity to the fight sequences, though, which plow across countless building facades. But Snyder doesnt have the material or the inclination to make Man of Steel as thought-provoking as Nolans Dark Knight trilogy. Superman wrestles with his allegiance to humans or his home planet, but the quandaries of a superpowered man betwixt worlds doesnt have any real resonance. The gravity that cloaks Man of Steel is merely an en vogue costume. At The Movies By TODD McCARTHY The Hollywood ReporterLOS ANGELES The seemingly exhausted grossout comedy genre gets a strange temporary reprieve with This Is the End, an unlikable but weirdly compelling apocalyptic fantasy in which a bunch of young stars and stars-by-affiliation jokingly imagine their own mortality. Asort-of The Day of the Locust centered on successful comic actors, rather than down-and-outers, facing a conflagration in Los Angeles, this is a dark farce thats simultaneously selfdeprecating, self-serving, an occasion to vent about both friends and rivals and to fret about self-worth in a cocooned environment. With everyone here officially playing themselves, the result is like a giant home movie and a reality horror show, different enough from anything thats come before to score with young audiences. W ith the Hangover series outliving its welcome, Judd Apatow moving on to quasi-serious stuff and Johnny-come-latelies like & Over and Movie 43 falling short, outrageous comedies arent what they used to be a few years back. Early on in This Is the End, James Franco and Seth Rogen explore story ideas for a possible Pineapple Express sequel, but its hard to know, five years on, what the public appetite would be even for that. Instead, Rogen and cowriter/co-director Evan Goldberg reached back to 2007 for inspiration, to a nine-minute short they and Jason Stone made called Seth and Jay Versus the Apocalypse. It is said to have cost $3,000 and starred five of the six main actors from the present feature Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Franco, Jonah Hill and Danny McBride. This Is the End goes places you dont expect it to, exploring the guysrifts and doubts and misgivings just as it wallows in an extravagant lifestyle that inevitably attracts public fascination. It also expresses the anxiety and insecurity of comics conscious of the big issues in life they are expected either to avoid or make fun of in their work. Rogen and Goldberg take the latter approach here, in an immature but sometimes surprisingly upfront way one can interpret seriously. Or not. This Is the End, a Sony/Columbia release, is rated R for crude and sexual content throughout, brief graphic nudity, pervasive language, drug use and some violence. Running time: 107 minutes.

I was happy to see her because I l ike her and havent seen her since my wedding in 2 011. Carrie has been going through a difficult time because of her mothe rs death two years ago and her fathers remarr iage plans. I know people are prone to do odd things when under stress, but this has me concerned. During the e vening, I went to retrieve an item from my handbag. C arrie was with me, and mentioned she loved my purse and then announced s he was stealing it. I realized it wasnt a joke w hen she dumped the contents of my bag on the kitchen counter in front of s everal family members. She then handed me $10 and put my purse in her c ar! I was flabbergasted and d idnt know how to react. Although I had mentioned that I bought the bag at a thrift store for less than Carrie gave me, I liked it b ecause it is a vintage item. I dont think a replacement will easily be found. While I was always excited to see Carrie before, I am now leery of s eeing her again for fear of a repeat of what she d id. Am I wrong to feel offended? Do I have any hope of getting my purse back? Stupefied in New York DearStupefied: Carries behavior was outrageous and may indicate that she has emotional problems that should be a ddressed. That you would be offended is understandable. That you would be so shocked you didnt immediately object is also understandable. The only hope of getting your purse back would be to pay this woman a visit, return her money and tell her its time to return it. If youre up to the challenge, she may agree. But dont count on it. DearAbby: How and when do I tell the guy I just started seeing that I have bipolar disorder? I dont want to make him think Im crazy. On the other hand, I really like him and hope our relationship will grow into something more. I dont want to start it off with a lie.

C M Y K Days spent poolside with the family are fun. But, as a recent drowning of a small child in Avon Park demonstrated, they can also be dangerous, especially for children. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, children ages 1 to 4 have the highest drowning rates, and fatal drowning is the second-leading cause of unintentional injury-related death for children ages 1-14. Its no wonder then why parents place such a strong emphasis on pool safety. The following are some preventative measures parents can take to reduce their childs risk of an accident in the pool. Metro Services Do not consume alcoholAdults should never consume alcohol while children are swimming in the pool. Alcohol can negatively affect judgement, balance and coordination, making it more difficult to respond to a pool emergency should one occur. In addition, the effects of alcohol are heightened by exposure to the sun and heat, so consuming alcohol on hot summer days while kids are swimming in the pool could be an unnecessary risk. Dont rely on air-filled or foam toysParents should not rely on air-filled flotation devices such as "water wings" as a safety measure. Such devices can deflate, putting kids at risk, especially if parents are under the assumption that the devices are enough to keep kids safe while they man the grill or mow the lawn. Even if kids wearing flotation devices have had swimming lessons, the likelihood kids will panic and forget those lessons if the devices deflate is significant enough that parents should pay constant attention. Pay constant attentionKids should never be left unattended when in a pool. But accidents happen even when parents are nearby. However, how quickly adults or others respond to a child in danger can have a significant impact on the outcome of an emergency situation. Astudy in the medical journal Pediatrics determined that the more quickly someone is able to intervene, such as administering CPR, the better the chance of improving the outcome. So parents should respond as quickly as possible whenever they suspect something has gone wrong in the pool.

But a child who has received formal swimming lessons has a significantly smaller risk of injury or drowning than one who has not received formal lessons. A 2009 study published in the Archives of Pediatrics and Medicine found that participation in formal swimming lessons can reduce the risk of drowning by 88 percent among children ages 1 to 14 years. Local high schools as well as the YMCAoffer swimming lessons for children. Put all toys away after swimmingA pool and its surrounding deck should not have toys lying around, as this only entices children to go into the pool area when Mom and Dad might not be home or watching them. Astudy from the Consumer Product Safety Commission found that most young children who drowned in pools were last seen in the home and had been out of sight for less than five minutes. Kids can quickly disappear, and it might be too late before parents notice their youngster has jumped into the pool unsupervised. Put all toys away once a swimming session ends, so kids dont feel the urge to go play by the pool unsupervised. SWIM SAFELY THISSUMMER
