He earned it serving as a teacher, administrator and educational leader for more than 45 years. He almost took a different career path. Fascinated by chemistry, he planned on becoming a pharmacist. Friends talked him out of it. Im very thankful I went i nto education, Stephens said during a interview in June 2012. Theres somet hing special about community colleges. Theyve changed the country. The majority of juniors and seniors today came through community colleges. The institutions have changed radically since the late 1960s, when Stephens began his career. Part of his professional excitement and satisfaction came from having a role in that evolution. Stephens arrived in Highlands County an almost native Floridian. Although born outside Chicago, he moved with his family to Fort Lauderdale when he was in his teens and graduated from Fort Lauderdale High School. He knew Highlands County too, because every summer he went to Camp Wingmann first as a Hes earned a good rest B y CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING At the commissions T uesday evening meeting, County Attorney Ross Macbeth said there is a need to create a consistent policy regarding prayer before commission meetings. Given recent appeal andS upreme Court rulings, it would be best to have a formal procedure, he said. More specifically, a policy creating rules about when an invocation is given, who gives it, and how often. Macbeth said court opinion has traditionally upheld the right of an elected body to hear an invocation before a public meeting begins. Lakelands invocation policy recently survived a challenge to the Supreme Court. Macbeth offered the commission a resolution draft modeled after Lakelands resolution. More difficult than scheduling the invocation before the formal opening of a meeting, however, is how to select County eyeing prayer policy Selecting who prays before meetings to be discussed Tuesday Macbeth Photo by KATARASIMMONS South Florida State Colleges retiring president Dr. Norman Stephens stands next to the colleges Foucult Pendulum, a devise that proves the Earths rotation.

SFSC has grown from fewer than 200 students in 1966 to more then 2,000 today and become a center for art and culture in Central Florida. Of course, Stephens didnt do this all by himself.

Part of you understands it i s selfish to do anything but wish him bon voyage. On the other hand, part of you cant imagine how anyone else can do as good a job. After all, during his t enure, the school grew in size, added a science buildi ng, expanded courses and programs, reached out to the public schools and became as tate college offering its own bachelors degree program. P erhaps the best example of Stephensdedication to the s chool and community is the Theater for the Performing Arts, a gift to the entire county. Of course, Stephens would n ever take credit like that. A truly modest man, all this attention as he retires is probably more embarrassing than pleasing. He always says he is a part of a teama nd that others came before him. U nfortunately for Stephens, he is liked, admired and held in veryh igh regard. At this time in his life he has no escape ... h e must face up to the compliments. W eve watched for 11 years as Norm Stephens led by example being down to earth, always learning, treating people and problems with fairness, generosity and imagination, volunteering his services and consistently engaged in the community. He leaves a vibrant, wellr unning institution for the new president, Thomas Leitzell, to make even moree xciting. H ighlands County is fortunate to have been the center of Norm Stephensattention a nd energy. We owe him a l ot. S o, how do you say goodb ye to a man like that? This way: Thank you, Norm. We wish you well. Have fun. Farewell ... and thanks How do you say goodbye when someone retires especially when you dont really want him to go? When House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi spoke b efore progressive activists at the Netroots Nation recently, she became a symbol of a split lurking within the Democratic andR epublican parties that could undercut impact the 2016 Presidential race. The reason: Pelosi was booed in a seeming throw-b ack to the 1960s, when the Democratic Partys left wing p erceived the government run by its party as an almoste vil, dangerous force, pitting anti-war Democrats against the more professional politician types. Democrats have battled each other over mili-t ary related issues under Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Lyndon Baines Johnson, and during the primaries for the 2008 Democratic Party pres-i dential nomination. Pelosis sin? She had dared to diss a person who has become a hero to many in the Democratic Partys left wing grassroots and in the Republican Partys nonestablishment right wing grassroots: Edward Snowden, the former NSA contract worker who leaked information that NSAcollects data from millions of Americans with the cooperation of several large internet and telecom companies, and that Great Britains intelligence agency GCHQ monitored delegatesphones. Hes the latest to join the ranks of what writer Robert Levine calls the transparency Messiahs, who saw themselves as above the law, selfappointed messiahs able to make policy decisions over and above the elected officials of these nations. Pelosi sin was to say theres a need to balance privacy and security and noting that Snowden did violate the law in terms of releasing those documents. For stating this fact Pelosi was booed and someone even yelled You suck! providing yet more evidence of how (uh, oh here come the False Equivalency Police) the left and right often in their tendency to somehow consider insult-hurling and name-calling the same as thoughtful political comment. The split among Democratic liberals on Snowden runs deep. Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla. Snowden to be prosecuted because he violated the law, he violated Americas trust, he jeopardized millions of Americans. Liberal talker Ed Schultz riled his listeners by saying Snowden is no hero or typical whistleblower, and if he was a patriot hed come home and face the music since he has so many supporting him in the United States. Liberal blogger Oliver Willis wrote: Two separate dispatches from Edward Snowden on Monday have continued to unravel the wannabe whistleblower and show him to be something of a simpleton in the way he views the world. In the real world countries spy on each other.This practice is not limited to enemies or countries with some hostility to each other, but even allies spy on each other to keep up with the Joneses. But for guys like Snowden and Bradley Manning and [Glen] Greenwald this is too much for them. The Great Satan (America spy on others. In the GOP, theres now a split between libertarianinclined Republicans who admire Snowdens actions and strong-on-defense Republicans who consider him a traitor. This could impact both partiesraces for the 2016 Presidential nomination because for some vot-e rs itll be a litmus test. Nuance doesnt play well in primaries, so some voters in both parties could demand candidates declare one prior-i ty: private at all costs or security at all costs? Polls find Americans divided on Snowdens actions, with younger voters being more inclined to feel he did the right thing. Lost in all the reports about Snowden, his interviews, his possible motives, and people choosing sides is the question of the damage his revelations may have done and could do. An ABC News report began with this: As the U.S. intelligence community struggles to complete a damage assessment over the secret information allegedly stolen by NSAleaker Edward Snowden, sources told ABC News there is a growing consensus within the top circles of the U.S. government that the 30-year-old contractor could deal a potentially devastating blow to U.S. national security If a future terrorist attack that matches or tops 9/11 occurs because Snowdens leaks removed existing prevention measures, or tipped off Americans must brutal enemies, look for the bulk of Americans to boo members of the Edward Snowden fan club.

He can be reached at jgandelman@themoderatevoice.com/. Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily those of the News-Sun staff. Snowdens revelations reveal Democratic and Republican splits J ohn Roberts is a very patient man. Thirty years a go, as a young lawyer in Ronald Reagans Justice Department, he wrotem emos attacking a landmark civil rights law that was enacted to ensure that a ll Americans, regardless of color, had the right to vote. A nd on Tuesday morning, as chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, he wrote the ruling that shreds the law. C onservatives will praise the 5-4 decision to gut the core provision of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, and they will conveniently ignore the irony that unelected judges have intrusivelyt rumped the peoples elected representatives. B oth houses of Congress had renewed the law four times since most recently in 2006 by a combined bipartisan vote of4 88-22 precisely because there was overwhelming documented evidence of ongoing voter discrimination in states andl ocalities with long histories of bad behavior. When Alabamas legal challenge was aired in the high court back in February, Roberts and his allies suggested that the voting rights law was no longer necessary; and besides, in the immortal words of Antonin Scalia, the law was a perpetuation of racial entitlement which was news to me, because Id never realized that equal access to the ballot was a racial entitlement. Plus, Roberts, in a ruling on an unrelated voting case back in 2009, had already signaled how he felt about the Voting Rights enforcement provision: It represents an intrusion into areas of state and local responsibility, and, besides, there w as no longer a need for Justice to ride hard on the nine (mostly Southern s tates that had a history of racism, because, as he put i t, Things have changed in the South. Roberts basically said that the law is obsolete. He said that even though thel aw empowered the Justice Department to fight local racism, theres no such need anymore because that behavior doesnt exist anymore (he refers to eradicated practices). He didc raft a fig leaf he invited Congress to revise and u pdate the enforcement formula at the core of the law but thats a howler, because (as he well knows this Congress cant evenp ass a farm bill, and is so dysfunctional that anything more complicated than a Boy Scout resolution strains its collective cogni-t ion. Thanks to the 2006 renewal of the law, which was supposed to extend until 2032, the Justice Department was able to thwart racism in 2012. Just two examples: When Texas Republicans enacted a voter-ID law that was crafted to disproportionately hurt minorities, Justice blocked it by invoking the laws oversight powers. When Florida Republicans tweaked their state rules in an attempt to reduce early voting hours in ways that disproportionately hurt minorities, Justice blocked it by invoking the laws oversight powers. Now those powers are gone. From now on, people who are turned away at the p olls will have to file lawsuits at their own expense and only after the votersuppression schemes have already screwed them.T hats how the game worked before the Voting Rights Act went on the b ooks in 1965. Roberts has turned back the clock. A nd how ironic that he has done so by overriding the peoples elected representatives specifically, the 2006 Republican Housea nd 2006 Republican Senate, both of which concluded: years has not been a sufficient amount of time to eliminate the vestiges of discrimination following nearly 100 years ofd isregard for the dictates of the 15th (right to vote A mendment and to ensure that the right of all citizens to vote is protected as guaranteed by the Constitution. So much for that bipartis an legislative sentiment; Roberts and his court allies opted instead to legislate from the bench. Conservatives typically u se that phrase to complain about rulings they dislike but not today. The Human Events website is already praising the Supreme Court for taking away one of the clubs Attorney General Eric Holder has been using to beat common-sense voter identification laws into the dirt.

C M Y K B y SCOTTDRESSEL editor@newssun.comAVON PARK The connection between Avon Park and baseball goes back tow hen the Hotel Jacaranda was the height of luxury and M ain Street was still a dirt road. Daniel Bedell, who grew u p in Avon Park before becoming a professional p hotographer, decided to return home last April to capture the current state oft hat connection on film (well, on digital pixels part of an ongoing project to d ocument his hometown. When he sent some of t hose pictures out in a marketing email to several different potential publishers, he got a quick response from one known as TheW orldwide Leader in Sports ESPN. I heard back right away from one of the magazines photo editors, Stephanie Weed, Bedell, 29, said. She liked the images andw anted to know more about them and if there was any b ack story about the town and field, so I passed that on to her The 22-photo presentation, titled Welcome to BaseballC ity, popped up on the ESPN website earlier this week. It features images Bedell took at Head Field, the Lucy Derkman SoftballC omplex and the Durrah Martin Complex, along with descriptions of the scenes. The easiest way to see the spread is to go to www.espn.com and type Avon Park into the search box. You can also go to hisw ebsite www.danielbedell.com and look in the Projects section to see even more photos. One of the images will be published in the issue of ESPN: The Magazine dueo ut this week. Bedell is reasonably sure it will be the one of Cassie Dennis banging her head against the dugout wall during a youths oftball game. Bedell laughed when recalling that picture. There was no anger or punishment. She was just bored and it wasnt quite time for her to be on deck. Bedell first started coming h ome to take pictures of life in Avon Park in the winter of 2 011. Coming home was surpassingly great for several reasons, Bedell said. I barely was interested in pho-t ography while I lived there, at least not until the very end. Coming back as an adult about 10 years removed, you see the placei n a totally different way. Youre looking for the beauty in the place and all the stuff you passed on by when you were just growing up there. Theres a lot of beauty and interesting things there t hat you just never see when youre not looking. Bedell, who worked for a time as a freelance writer and photographer for theN ews-Sun, said it was amazing to see the hometown t hat you lived in for 15 or 20 years and then realize you didnt see much of any of iti n a lot of ways. His favorite photo in the b aseball spread is the one knows the least about, a picture of a young girl lookingu p at her father as she prepares to take a swing at a ball on a tee. Theres something so genuine and sweet about that a nd it reminds you of when you were growing up and your parents still seemed kind of larger than life and heroic, he said. B edell was excited when he realized the photos had been published on the website, but not just because of the professional accomplishment. Its not that its the biggest thing Ive ever had published, necessarily, but I guess its the most intimate thing that I cared about thatI ve ever had published, he said. Going back to my hometown to shoot, it became really kind of special to meb ecause I started to know the people, the pictures became m ore intimate and something I cared about. And then to have a major publicationg ive them a stamp of approval. ou always have these i mages that are kind of your babies that you care about, b ut you dont know if anybody else cares about. Its pretty great. I know its in their title, The Worldwide Leaderbutt hey really are the worldwide leader in sports and to have them say these pictures are a good reflection of sports in the world is pretty awesome.

H er answer came in response to questioning f rom defense attorney Don West about why she had given differing accountsa bout what she had heard over the phone when M artin first encountered Zimmerman on a rainy night on Feb. 26, 2012, at the Retreat at Twin Lakes townhome complex.

C M Y K SAN FRANCISCO (AP Backed by rainbow flags and confetti, thousands celebrated in Californias streets after U.S. Supreme Court rulings brought majora dvances for gay marriage proponents in the state and a cross the country. Though wedding bells m ay be weeks away, samesex couples and their supporters filled city blocks of San Francisco and West Hollywood on Wednesdayn ight to savor the longawaited decisions as thumping music resounded. oday the words emblazoned across the SupremeC ourt ring true: equal justice under law, said Paul Katami, one of the plaintiffs who challenged Californias gay marriage ban, as he celebrated in West Hollywood. In one of two 5-4 rulings, the high court cleared the way for gay marriages to resume in California, holding that the coalition of religious conservative groups that qualified a voterapproved ban for the ballot did not have the authority to defend it after state officials refused. The justices thus let stand a San Francisco trial courts ruling in August 2010 that overturned the ban. In the other, the court wiped away part of a federal anti-gay marriage law, the Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, putting legally married gay couples on equal federal footing with all other married Americans, allowing them to receive the same tax, health and pension benefits. The court sidestepped the larger question of whether banning gay marriage is unconstitutional, and states o ther than California and the 12 others where gay couples already have the right to wed were left to hash out the issue within their borders. A s the sun set on San Francisco, a crowd surged f rom hundreds to several thousand in the citys Castron eighborhood, with rainbow flags and confetti filling the air. James Reynolds, 45, was among the revelers, sayingh e had been married to his partner of 23 years several times, including once in California. s been taken away f rom us, Reynolds said as he stood in a crosswalk near the barrier blocking off the street for the celebration. But well be married again. In Southern California, an all-day celebration in West Hollywood grew to hundreds by night, including many gay couples dressed in red, white and blue and one sign that read Today we are American. Brendan Banfield, 46, stood on the very spot under a tree in West Hollywood P ark where in 2008 he married his partner, Charles, becoming one of an estimated 18,000 couples that got married during the 4 1/2f our months when gay marriage was legal in California. I want to cry, Banfield said. Its been a long jour-n ey. Im grateful Im alive to see it.

It has not been unusual f or ministers from the comm unity to (be selected out rhyme or reason. You h ave to have a consistent practice. The item did not need to be on the agenda, he added, because it was a commission policy decision, but commiss ioners refused to bring it to a vote without public heari ngs. It is on the agenda for the morning meeting July 2. C ontinued from A1 By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentAVON PARK It was a bumpy start Wednesdaym orning as the newly reconstituted Avon Park Charter Review Committee convened at the city council chambers to have a look at a pending update of ap roposed new charter. In attendance were comm ittee members George Hall, Lester Roberts and Joe Wright. Two committeem embers were not able to attend. Jim Barnard was out o f town while former councilman Doug Eason reportedly declined to participate further in the process. Also at Wednesdays sess ion were City Attorney Gerald Buhr; current counc ilman Parke Sutherland, who is the councils liaison to the committee; his wifeM aria Sutherland, who is Avon Park Administrative S ervices director; and City Clerk Cheryl Teitjen. Hall called the meeting t o a halt within the first half hour when it was discovered that none of the t hree committee members had the same revised copy o f the document to work from and all three differed from the attorneys version. Described as a work in p rogress, Hall said it had been difficult for the committee to make its way through the charter as there had been adjustments and r evisions made each time it was reviewed. This time was no exception. In fact, Hall said there had been wholesalec hanges made to the drafts the committee had received. H e pointed to the re-insertion of an entire section on investigations. Althought here are some provisions for that in the current chart er, those had been removed from the new document in an effort to produce as treamlined version. However, the way the new section had been writt en, any member of staff could begin his or her own i nvestigation. Committee members agreed that the power to begin investigations should rest with the city council itself. A nother portion of the proposed new document that had not been included in committee copies would allow four members of the council to get together and remove a fifth for things such as failure to appear at a number of meetings. Hall said that the manner in which that portion of the statute had been formulated might be construed to be that four members of a c ouncil could conceivablygang up on a fifth c ouncil person and oust them. That issue came to light a s Hall was reading the statute aloud and Buhr q uestioned the portion of language, indicating a comma had been included where one had previously not occurred. I am not familiar with legalese, Hall said, but c ommas and punctuation can change things in a document like that. A lthough the committee had been pressed to come u p with a recommendation and a vote at Wednesdays initial session, Hall said hew ould call for a second meeting on Monday morning with a goal of produci ng a final version with which all committee memb ers would be satisfied. e are then going to have each committee member sign the final document and initial each page so thatw e are certain that whatever the council sees is the version that we all agreed upon, Hall said. City charter review team hits roadblock Committee members dont have same document, so meeting halted News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY (From left) Highlands County Commissioners Greg Harris, Jack Richie, James Brooks and Don Elwell, during the invocation at the Tuesday night meeting.

C M Y K S pecial to the News-SunMULBERRYThe Mulberry Dixie Youth Belles played in the District5 championship this past weekend and won it all with no runs scored against them throughout the whole tournament. There are five girls on the team that played for Mayhem fast pitch which JTTanner coached for a little over a year with Mike G ardner, the manager of the Mulberry Belles team. JTand his family became a personal friend to us. The girls wore the letters JT on their jerserys in remembrance of one of the best coaches that had ever stepped foot on a softball field. JTalways pushed them to their limits and the hard work he put into them payed off this past weekend, especially when two of his former girls made history in Mulberry and hit outof-the-park home runs for the first time. Toward the end of the teamssecond game, they were winning 16-0 when the sun suddenly seemed to be brighter than ever as it fell behind the clouds and above the sun was another ray of light out of nowhere. The girls told Coach Mike thats JTpraising us for the playing we have done. He was truly an angel on their side. The team has advanced to the state level where they will begin play on Friday, July 5. When I was growing up, my Dad always told us boys that if we wanted to become good at sports, we needed to spend time with people who were better than we were. Of course, he was referring to football, basketball and baseball. H e always said if you compete against someone with less skill or knowledge, you may feel pretty good about yourself being the best against your competition but youll never become great. My brothers and I learned this lesson well and became strong, competitive athletes in all the major sports. But I believe this bit of knowledge is applicable to fishing as well. Ive had the benefit of fishing with and against some of the best fishermen in the world. And Ive learned many things over the past 50 years. But the most important thing Ive learned is that knowledge is the key to suc-c ess in anything you do, and that you can never stop learning. I live about 3-4 miles f rom Lake Jackson, and like a lot of fishermen, its a p retty convenient lake to f ish if you can find the fish. My style of fishing, primarily flippin and pitchin works best on lakes like Istokpoga, Okeechobee and Walk-in-Water. Ive always looked at Lake Jackson, like other fishermen, as more of a recreational lake, and a tough lake to fish. Adishpan lake, with a shallow shore-lines and little to no vegetation, Lake Jackson poses a challenge to most fishermen. When the water level is high, docks can offer some opportunities, as well as early morning shoreline casting. But when the lake is at a lower level, such as it is now, you really have to know the lake in order to consistently catch bass. Heeding my fathers advice, I called an old friend, Paul Tardiff, to see if he could assist me in learning how to fish this lake be tter. Paul is a recognized expert on Lake Jackson. Hes fished the lake consistently for years and knows more about the lake and w here to fish than anyone I know. He had invited me to join him months ago, so I gave him a call and we headed out on his boat last week. Even on Istokpoga, Okeechobee and Walk-inWater, the fishing can get tough during the dog days of summer. Bass will often go deep into the vegetation as thew ater warms or in the case of a deeper lake like Jackson, theyll congregate in deeper water over under-w ater structure. Paul knows where the u nderwater structure is on Lake Jackson and he was m ore than happy to share that information with me. F ishing, as most of you know, has become a much more sophisticated sport than it was years ago. Todays electronics, combined with memory enhanced electric motors make the job considerably easier, but you have to learn how to use the equipment. Paul uses a side-reading depthfinder that can isolate an underwater structure and he combines the GPS coordinates into his electric motor to maintain his position while he works the structure. Its amazing whats located on the bottom of a lake. Rockpiles, brushpiles, humps and sunken boats all provide the type of structure that bass love to inhabit. Often, the structure can be located at depths of 20 feet or more and the fish will hover above or under. Most depthfinders will SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, June 28, 2013 BAYARD ADVERTISING INC; 11.25"; 1.5"; Black plus three; process, IO026000 HCA-East FL; 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 3 0 0 8 8 8 8 6 6 Page B3 Fishin Around...

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAculture of winning is catching on and spreading through Lake Placid athletics. After a school year that saw five district championships won for Dragon teams, another title was just won by the Lake Placid Dixie Belles (ages 13-15 team. A fter years of frustration, this years squad, which includes many varsity and junior varsity Lady Dragons, was lead to victory by head coach Todd Moore and assistants Linette Wells and Christy Krett. The Belles squad earned itsticket to the big dance of the State Tournament by taki ng the first two games of the best of three against O keechobee last weekend by 10-7 and 14-6 scores. That first game was the key, coach Moore said. inning gave the girls momentum and the confidence they needed. But they found themselves in an early hole as Okeechobee jumped out with two in the first and another in the second for a 3-0 lead. But Lake Placid quickly evened things up in the bottom of the second of what would be a back-and-forth battle.

Our first stop, one of Pauls favorite brushpiles produced three bass in a matter of minutes. Fishing a plastic worm on a Carolina Rig, or a deep diving crankbait, the fish were obviously anxious to feed. As the first spot slowed down, we moved to a second and then a third location, catching bass everywhere we stopped. It was interesting to see the bass come up and bust bait fish, and then retreat to their deep water home. Although we didnt catch any huge bass, Paul is confident they are in there. His personal wallhanger was 15.2, and hes caught many bass out of Lake Jackson in the 8-10 pound range. We finished the day with 15-16 bass, the largest a 5 1/2 pounder caught by Paul. It was a real learning experience for me and a trip Ill remember for years to come. Years ago, I used to hold weekly bass tournaments on many of the area lakes and when I moved back to Ohio in 2006, Paul continued the weekly tournaments for a n umber of years. Weve decided to join forces and begin another weekly tournament starting in July on Lake Jackson. Paul will be the official weigh-master, while Ill be responsible for livewell and time checks. Our plan is to hold the first tournament on Lake Jackson Wednesday, July 10, from 7:30 a.m. to Noon and every Wednesday thereafter. The tournament will be open to anyone and can be fished by one or two anglers in a boat. All anglers must remain in their boats during the tournament hours. Entry fee will be $20 per tournament, with $15 going to the winner and $5 going to second place finishers. The event will be confined to Lake Jackson (and not Little Lake Jackson) using artificial baits with a 14-inch size limit and a 3 fish boat limit. Boats must be in the water by 7:30 a.m. in order to participate. Anglers reporting in after 12:05 p.m. will be disqualified. Time check will take plac e prior to take off. You can pay at the ramp the morning of the tournament. Wed like to invite you all to participate, the more boats the better. For more information call Paul at 863-273-4062, or gi ve me a call at 863-273-4998. Hope to see you there!

Highlands Youth Football registration STARS strike success Bass tournament on the horizon walked to load the bases. Nicole Moore then cleared them with a double to tie it at 3-3. Lake Placid took the lead in the third on a tworun, inside-the-park home run from Gobourne, but Okeechobee battled back to tie it again in the fourth. In the bottom of the frame, Moore doubled and proceeded to steal third and home, with Amy Platt then walking, stealing second and coming in on a Titi Toliver hit. The junior Lady Brahmans again tied it with two in the top of the sixth to make it 7-7 but the ladies of Lake Placid had one more game clinching rally in them. Leah Moore drove Gobourne and Holly Krett home and Nicole Moore would drive Douglas in for what would stand up to be the 10-7 win. Krett closed out the game by striking out the side in the seventh, following two innings of work by starter Douglas and four solid innings by Dustie Gibson. The momentum carried over into the second game as Gobourne batted in Savannah Dixon in the first, with Douglas, Nicole Moore and Platt all scoring in the second for a 4-0 lead. Asix-run explosion in the third seemed to all but put the game away with a 10-0 lead. But Lake Placids six runs were matched in the bottom of the third off a pair of relievers, and suddenly the massive lead had shriveled to 10-6. But Krett came back in to pitch the remaining innings and would shut Okeechobee down the rest of the way. The offense, meanwhile, added a Dixon run in the fourth and scores from Douglas and Nicole Moore in the fifth. Later, an insurance run was added when Jillian Rykaceski drew a walk and came around on a Nicole Moore double, her fourth hit of the game. But insurance was not needed as Krett kept the Brahmans at bay, striking out nine for the game, 12 on the day, and securing Lake Placids first ever Dixie Softball District Championship. This moves the girls on to the Florida Dixie Youth Softball State Tournament, scheduled for July 4-9 in Brooksville. Also moving on to State is the Lake Placid Ponytails team, ages 1112 and coached by Reggie Jones. And the winning culture in Lake Placid sports continues to build.

C M Y K By GEORGE JAHN A ssociated PressVIENNA The U.N. d rug control agency on Wednesday sounded the alarm on the spread of designer drugs, which are sold openly and producel egal but sometimes deadly highs, while reporting that global drug use generally remains stable. Such substances can be f ar more dangerous than traditional drugs, the agency said in a statement accompa-n ying its annual report. Street names, such as spice,meow-meowand bath saltsmislead young people into believing that t hey are indulging in lowrisk fun. Asix-page summary of t he report by the U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime warned t hat the international drug control system is foundering, for the first time, under the speed and creativity of their proliferation. I t said countries worldwide reported 251 such subs tances by mid-2012, compared with 166 at the end of 2009. T he problem, said the report, is hydra-headed in t hat as fast as governments ban the drugs, manufacturers produce new variants. N early 5 percent of European Union residents aged between 15 and 24 have already experimented with such drugs, said ther eport. In the United States, 158 kinds of synthetic drugs were circulating during 2012, more than twice asm any as in the EU, and use was growing in East and S outheast Asia, including China, Indonesia, Japan, theP hilippines, Thailand and Vietnam. Gil Kerlikowske, director of the U.S. Office of National Drug ControlP olicy, said the United States faces continuing challenges with prescription drug abuse and new synthetic drugs. B ut he also noted successes, saying on the sidelines of a meeting in Vienna for the reports launch that U.S. cocaine use has decreased by 50 percent since 2006, due in part to better drug educa-t ion and increased amounts seized. In a statement accompanying the organizations 151page report, UNODC headY ury Fedotov said that while drug use and production overall appears to be stable in recent years, illicit drug consumption still killsa round 200,000 people each year. However, the office lowe red its estimate of the number of people injecting drugs and those living with theH IVvirus worldwide because of such injections. I t said 14 million people between the ages of 16 and 65 inject drugs and of those,1 .6 million have the virus as a result of such injections 1 2 percent and 46 percent less respectively than last estimated five years ago. In other findings, the agency reported: heroin and opium use remains steady at around 16.4 million people, or 0.4 percent of the worlds adultp opulation. heroin use appears to be declining in Europe, with users aging and because of more efficient drug seizuresb y authorities. cocaine use, although still rare, appears to be growing in China and Hong Kong as shown by seizureso f the drug, apparently reflecting the growth of a more affluent society. U.S. cocaine use fell by 40 percent between 2006 and 2011, due in part to lessp roduction in Colombia, more efficient law enforcem ent and disruptive turf wars among drug cartels. seizures of amphetam ine-type drugs rose by 66 percent in 2011 compared w ith the year before, to 123 tons. the use of ecstasy one such drug, is declining globally but appears to beg rowing in Europe. T he AMAjust classified o besity as a disease. That lets us junk food eaters and in-between meal snackers off the hook. Now we have an excuse. We are sick. Even the IRS recognizes that treatment for obesity can qualify for tax deductions. If you agree with the definition that a disease iss omething that impairs b ody function, then obesity qualifies. It affects the j oints, especially knees, may cause Type II diabetes, causes sleep apnea and other problems. It certainly seems to be epidemic. The AMAsays that part o f their declaration that it is a disease is because it is not j ust a result of poor lifestyle choices. Some of the problem is our busy lifestyle. Today, all the adults in the household often work. Kids have to be ferried to soccer, baseball, chorus and more. There is little time to cook. Fast food is so easy and tastes delicious. One survey estimates that about 1 in 4 Americans eat some type of fast food every day. We eat 29 pounds of French fries a year and the two most popular vegetables are corn and potatoes. The AMAthinks that calling obesity a disease will get doctors to talk to their patients more about weight and a healthier lifestyle. With decreasing reimbursements and an aging population, doctors often do not have the time for extensive counseling. So what can you do? Astudy of the eating habits of thin versus obese people found that the thin people stopped eating when they were full no matter how much was on their plate. This can be a hard one, especially if it is a food you really like. One lady interviewed after losing a great deal of weight said that she did it by eating foods she did not like so she was not tempted to overeat. This worked well until she decided that she liked some of them. Abetter way is to put less on your plate. Some restaurants are beginning to offer small plates. Some will let you split an entre. When we were little, we a te a little meat a nd lots of vegetables and fruit. My momw as feeding five of us on a rural clergy salary. We were g iven lots of produce and we ate all of it. Turns out s he was really smart as this is one of the new healthy diet recommendations lots of vegetables (not just corn and potatoes) and four-o unce portions of meat. Fruit makes a great dessert, especially since we have oranges, melons, strawberries, blueberries and peach-e s locally. If you need to find a quick meal, there are healthy fast foods such as rotisserie chicken, either plain or used in stir fry, smoked meat by the pound from the barbecue restaurant with your own vegetables and salad, and Japanese or Chinese stir fry carryout. I t is just as easy to make two meals and freeze one f or a later fast food meal. Chili, spaghetti sauce and stews actually taste better for the next meal. Try some of the quick meal ideass uch as the ones demonstrated at Publix. They have calories on the recipe cards that you can take home. If you make small changes, such as switching low fat products for full fato r switching lower calorie but tasty dishes for fast f ood hamburgers and fries, you will be healthier in the long run and might even lose a few pounds.

Glucosamine helps, but even after six months, Ims till stiff and riddled with pain. What else can I do? D.Y., Sarasota A nswer: Youre not alone; 27 million Americans l ive with osteoarthritis (OA and the affliction worsens over time. Left untreated, itc an completely disable you, so luckily you are doing s omething. I like glucosamine. I prefer the glucosamine sulfate form over other forms, because it provides sulfur to theb ody... sulfur, not to be confused with sulfa, a drug that m any people are allergic to. OAalways involves proinflammatory cytokines;y ouve heard me mention those before. Cytokines are p ain-causing chemicals. But get used to the word cytokine, I use it frequently i n my writings. Cytokines arent bad until your body pumps them out in excess, and thats exactly what happens with OA, and itse xactly what you need to reduce. That controls pain and improves range of motion. Ibuprofen reduces the c ytokines called prostaglandins and IL-1B. You want that. Glucosamine i s a precursor for glycosaminoglycans and that is a component of joint cartilage. Consider these: MSM This is a sulfurb ased compound that is actually a by-product of DMSO (DMSO is applied topically to joints, but its intended for vet purposes. T he FDAdoesnt like humans using it even though many of you do). A nyway, MSM, an oral supplement, is sold at health food stores and does wonders for joint pain. Bromelain This p ineapple extract gets mixed reviews. One study found it to be as effective as diclofenac, a prescription anti-inflammatory. I persona lly like this and frequently recommend it. Devils Claw Slightly m ore exotic, devils claw is so named because of its hooked fruit. A2011 study from Phytotherapy Research, concluded thatt he herb could block the release pro-inflammatory cytokines. In another study, Devils claw performed as well as the prescription drug Vioxx (now off the market, however Celebrex, which is safer, does remain). The point is that Devils claw iss trong; it interacts with medicine. Ask your doctor if its right for you. Boswellia Aresin from a tree. A2013 studyf rom the Journal of Headache and Pain studied the biological active ingredients in boswellia (pentacyclic triterpene acids) fort heir potent anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. Boswellic acid isa nother major active ingredient. This is (in my mind mother natures ibuprofen. T his may sound obvious, but take pressure off your j oints. Extra weight does no favor to your painful knees and hip joints. You mayh ave to start gently with yoga, or Tai Chi, but keep t hose joints moving. And finally, consider ramping up immunity, some forms of arthritis are due to infections, either fungal,v iral or bacterial. Compounds in green tea r educe the cytokine called TNF alpha, often high in arthritic conditions. One cupo f green (or matcha could beat up germs and i mprove immunity. The Ltheanine it contains is relaxing too. Drink it daily. Suzy Cohen is a registered pharmacist and the author of The 2 4-Hour Pharmacist and Real Solutions. For more informat ion, visit www.

Continued from B7 T wo very rich but evil brothers once used their money to keep their sinful ways from the publics eye. To further hide the truth,t hey worshiped together with the same congregation and put on the faces of perfect Christians. When the local preacher retired, a new onew as hired. Not only could the new preacher see right through the brothersdecep-t ions, but he was also one to speak boldly the indisputable truth of Gods word. I n time, the local church swelled in its numbers. The c ongregation decided it was necessary to build a new church building, so fundsw ere contributed to the effort. However, there was n ot enough money raised to complete the job. Suddenly, one of the brothers died. The remaining brother sought out the newp reacher the day before the funeral and handed him a c heck for the amount needed to finish paying for the new church building. I haveo nly one condition, he said. At his funeral, you must s ay that my brother was a saint. The preacher agreed and deposited the check. The next day at the funera l, the preacher held nothing back. He declared, The d eceased was an evil man. He cheated on his wife and abused his family. He was al iar and a thief. Only a handful has ever existed with f ewer morals. Then, the preacher concluded with, But, compared to his brother, he was a saint! 1 John 3:17-20 reads, But w hoever has the worlds goods, and sees his brother i n need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him?L ittle children, let us not love with word or with t ongue, but in deed and truth. We will know by this t hat we are of the truth, and will assure our heart before Him in whatever our heart condemns us; for God is greater than our heart andk nows all things. No matter who we are on the outside, God knows who we are on the inside. Since He knows all things, He also knowso ur hearts. We may be able to hide the truth from those aroundu s, but there is no such thing as hiding the truth from God. Whether it be now or later,t he truth will be revealed. Therefore do not go on p assing judgment before the time, but wait until the Lord comes who will both bringt o light the things hidden in the darkness and disclose the m otives of men's hearts; and then each man's praise will come to him from God.

I even struggle with my cell phone. I guess I am just not a High Tech guy. Hi, my name is Pastor Reinhold Buxbaum from The Church of the Way, and I would like a word with you. Not too long ago I read that information doubles every six months. That is fantastic, except I cannot keep up with it. I clearly remember when the only computer game was ping pong on my TVscreen. I thought it was the greatest and final invention. Have you gone to an arcade in a mall lately? I thought I was watching a movie until I was told that it is all computer generated. Stuff is getting a little scary out there. They are working on bending light and making people invisible. It is supposed to help soldiers in a war, but what about right here at home? I would not want someone invisible in my neighborhood. The drones are enough of a concern for me. I cant see them, but they can see me? How spooky is that? There are now vehicles driving in America without a driver. They are controlled long distance like a drone. They better not run into car trouble. And how do they gas up? With an invisible person? I dont know about you, but I understand my mom more and more when she said she does not fit into this age anymore. Of course it should not come as a surprise to us, because the Bible talks about this in the end times. Listen to the Prophet Daniel, he received much information about the end times from an angel he was told to roll up the scroll and seal it for the time of the end. And then the angel tells him: Many will go here and there to increase knowledge. (Daniel 12:4, NIV). Many will go here and there could be interpreted as travel. That too is at an incredible increase. But the knowledge part is right out amazing. Daniel lived 2,600 years ago and the increase in knowledge was minimal until just the last 150 years or so. But now it is taking off like a rocket. Have you seen those new robots? You would think there is a real person in there. But what does that all tell me? That we are living in the time of the end, according to the angel telling Daniel. What else does the Bible tell us will happen? Jesus will come back. And I cant wait. According to Paul in I Thessalonians 4:17 the believers in the end times will be caught up (raptured into heaven. Sounds too good to be true? You believe robots and invisible men and cars without drivers? Then lets believe God and Jesus and the Bible. Yes, the stage is set for the second coming of Jesus.

Walker Snapshots B y BRADYMcCOMBS Associated PressSALTLAKE CITY The common image of Mormon missionaries has long been two young menw earing white shirts and ties walking through neighb orhoods, knocking doorto-door. But in a few years, that i mage may be replaced by one of young Mormons sitt ing with an iPad, typing messages on Facebook. Recognizing the world h as changed, leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints leaders announced Sunday night that missionaries will dol ess door-to-door proselytizing, and instead, use the Internet to recruit new church members. The strategy shift reflects t he growing importance of social media and peoples p reference to connect over sites such as Facebookr ather than opening their homes to strangers, church l eaders said. The way in which we fulfill our responsibilities to share the gospel must adapt to a changing world,s aid Elder L. Tom Perry of the Quorum of the Twelve A postles during a presentation to mission presidents in Provo, Utah, that wasb roadcast worldwide. The move is the latest e xample of the LDS churchs gradual embrace of the digital age, and a r ecognition that door-todoor proselytizing is not the most effective way to expand church membership, church scholars said. M any of the details about how the social media work will be carried out by missionaries and monitored by mission presidents have yett o be ironed out, church officials said. B ut its clear that the new rules mark a signifi-c ant change in the way the church governs Internet a ccess for missionaries. Previously, Internet use for missionaries was limited to once a week and only for communicating withf riends and family back home or accessing official c hurch sites. Those rules were designed to reduce distrac-t ions and temptations for missionaries expected to d evote all their attention to serving the Lord, while leaving behind personal a ffairs. The announcement comes as the church sends more missionaries around the globe than at any timei n history. There has been an unprecedented surge of missionaries since the churchs announced inO ctober that it was lowering the minimum age for m issionaries from 21 to 19 for women and from 19 to1 8 for men. Mormons to use less knocking, more typing MCT The traditional Mormon way of delivering their message knocking on doors will be less common as the church switches to a more digital approach in the future.

C M Y K DearAbby: I have been divorced for almost 15 years. In that time, my ex-husband has been self-employed and works out of his home. He rarely leaves his house, and I think he suffers from depression. At a school honors event for our daughter for which most of the attendees dressed for the occasion, he arrived in dirty shorts and a T-shirt. I sat next to him to be polite, until I realized he also smelled awful. When I tried to excuse myself sayingI needed a better seat for my camera, he got up, too! It was an unpleasant two hours. I felt bad for the others in our vicinity. I have tried to suggest that he may suffer from depression in the past, but he denies it. Is there anything I can say that wont be resented (with him possibly showing up even more disheveled the next time just out of spite)? Unpleasant Situation, Gettysburg, Pa. DearUnpleasant Situation: While you may have ended your marriage 15 years ago, it doesnt appear you have truly divorced yourself from your ex. Rather than having pussyfooted around the reason you wanted to change your seat, you should have told him it was because he smelled likea goat and showed he lacked enough respect for those around him and his daughter to shower and put on clean clothes. He may or may not suffer from depression. Because he denies it, there is no way you can force him into treatment. You are no longer responsible for his attire or his welfare. Because youre concerned that he may show up looking more disheveled out of spite, you have my permission to distance yourself if it happens. And if your daughter is embarrassed by his attire, she has every right to talk to her father about it. DearAbby: Im a smallbusiness owner. I have an educational supply and toy store. Business has been pretty good, even through the hard times. My problem is my customerschildren are about to put me out of business. They are out of control. They climb on shelving, open products, tear things apart and throw screaming tantrums. Their parents let them run through the store like its a playground. I have signs posted at the entrance and around the store reminding parents to attend to their children. We have lost a lot of inventory due to these brats, and my time is consumed trying to keep them in line instead of working with my customers. I dont go to their homes and wreck them. I wish theyd show the same respect for my business. Thanks for any advice you can offer. Had It With Overindulged Kids DearHad It: If possible, designate a small area of your store where kids can go to play while their parents are shopping. Also, post a sign at the cash register that reads: Customers Will Be Charged for Broken or Damaged Items. The problem you are experiencing is one that is shared by many other retailers. If any of them are reading this column, Id love to know how they resolved this problem. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

Refreshing because carefree action absurdity, once the province of the summer cinema, is on the outs.S olemnity even for caped, flying men in tight-fitting trousers is in. B ut theres an inarguable, senseless pleasure in watching Jamie Foxx, as the presi-d ent of the United States, kicking a terrorist and shouti ng: Get your hands off my Jordans! Hail to the chief, indeed. White House Down follows Antoine Fuquas Olympus Has Fallen, released in March, as the second movie this year to imagine an assault on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Thet wo films are very similarly plotted, but White House D own is notably less serious, more content to loosen the strings and acknowledgei ts own inherent preposterousness. T his becomes particularly crystalized somewhere around the time Foxxs P resident James Sawyer and his rescuer, Channing Tatums wannabe secret service agent, are careening across the White House lawni n the presidents limo while terrorists shoot in pursuit. Onlookers behind a fence media, regular people, the Army merely gape ina we, as if frozen by the idiocy. White House Down is most entertaining when its as imple, ludicrous buddy movie, with Tatum and Foxx fleeing across the White House grounds, dropping one-liners as they go, eludi ng a gang of assailants led by a bitter turncoat (James W oods) and his ferocious henchmen (including Jason Clarke, swapping sides in the war on terror following Zero Dark Thirty). T his is a kind of coronation for Tatum as a movie s tar. Hes now reached the level that he can breeze through a blatantly sillym ovie and look none the worse for it. Hes John Cale ( not to be confused with the Velvet Underground musician, although, how could y ou?), a Silver Star veteran of Afghanistan and a police bodyguard to the speaker of the house (Richard Jenkins For his Secret Service i nterview at the White House, hes brought along his politics-obsessed 11year-old daughter (the promising Joey King). But it goesp oorly, partly because his would-be boss turns out to b e an old flame (Maggie Gyllenhaal) who doubts hesg rown up. Theres some reason to believe her, since Cale (in the mold of most action heroes) is an absentee, divorced dad. Its an archetype defined by Bruce Willis in DieH ard, a movie White House Down apes right d own to the wife-beater tank top. When the Capitol domei s detonated and the White House invaded, Cale is separated from his daughter and stumbles into the kidnapping of the president. From there, i s a series of chases through the handsome, recrea ted halls of the White House, where golden light filters in through venetian blinds but seemingly scant security measures exist. E mmerich, the director of spectacles like Independence Day (a movie he references in White House Down) and 2012, has made blowing up the White House somet hing of a fetish, having already done it in both of those movies. Its a style of b lockbuster that now feels dated, like a s kind of big-budget moviemaking that depends on explosions, flashes of comedy and starc harisma. The charm of Tatum toned but goofy carries the film. Foxx, a more gifted comic actor, is left off-s creen for large chunks. His president is a kind of liberal f antasy version of Barrack Obama, boldly removing allt roops from the Middle East, thereby sparking the fury of the Beltways white power players.

The majority of juniors and seniors today came through community colleges. The institutions have changed radically since the late 1960s, when Stephens began his career. Part of his professional excitement and satisfaction came from having a role in that evolution. Stephens arrived in Highlands County an almost native Floridian.

Given recent appeal and Supreme Court rulings, it would be best to have a formal procedure, he said. More specifically, a policy creating rules about when an invocation is given, who gives it, and how often. Macbeth said court opinion has traditionally upheld the right of an elected body to hear an invocation before a public meeting begins. Lakelands invocation policy recently survived a challenge to the Supreme Court. Macbeth offered the commission a resolution draft modeled after Lakelands resolution. More difficult than scheduling the invocation before the formal opening of a meeting, however, is how to select County eyeing prayer policy Selecting who prays before meetings to be discussed Tuesday Macbeth Photo by KATARASIMMONS South Florida State Colleges retiring president Dr. Norman Stephens stands next to the colleges Foucult Pendulum, a devise that proves the Earths rotation.

C M Y K News-Sun staffA VON PARK They came dressed in uniform and heard a story about Avon Parks history with baseball. Its a Whole New Ball Game was the theme for the evening, and that theme rings true. Tuesday nights Greater Avon Park Chamber of Commerce annual banquet was the first such affair for Tori Trinder in her new role as its executive director. Despite recovering from a case of laryngitis, she used the opportunity to address the crowd and roll out a number of new initiatives, leaning heavily on new technology and the social media to help both members businesses and area public service groups. The first new feature is a newly designed website. In addition to being brighter, less cluttered and easier to navigate, it also will have a new address. It will be at www.avonparkchamber.com, she told the gathering at the Island V iew restaurant. But we are going to point the old address at the new one, so anybody who had it bookmarked or has the old address still will be able to find it. Additionally, the new website will be a repository for mini-sites, which will be available free to all members. That will give a web presence to members who currently do not have a site, while allowing those who already have web pages to link through the chamber for easy access. Moreover, Trinder introduced a new feature for charities and service groups. Titled Chamber for Good, the page serves as a portal that will allow such clubs, groups and organizations to plug information into the chambers site. They can get on our events page, look for donations and volunteers, she said. Dr. Ron Sevigny, organizer of the Avon Park Diamond Club, provided the entertainment through a story of Avon Parks baseball history. He showed off two pictures he has just recently received from the St. Louis Cardinals of the team when it played in Avon Park in the 1920s. In keeping with the theme of the night, Julie DiazNichols turned over the presidents gavel to incoming president Jennifer Williams, who was also named Director of the Year. Goodbyes were said to Mason Cobb and Kim Schlosser, outgoing board members, and greetings offered to incoming board members Kathy Albritton, Mike Souther and Jeff Williams. As always, there were a number of awards and honorarium handed out at the meeting. Chen Dental was tappedas Business of the Year. The Avon Park Jaycees were bestowed with the Community Service Award.

Part of you understands it i s selfish to do anything but wish him bon voyage. On the other hand, part of you cant imagine how anyone else can do as good a job. After all, during his t enure, the school grew in size, added a science buildi ng, expanded courses and programs, reached out to the public schools and became a s tate college offering its own bachelors degree program. P erhaps the best example of Stephensdedication to the school and community is the Theater for the Performing Arts, a gift to the entire county. Of course, Stephens would never take credit like that. A truly modest man, all this attention as he retires is probably more embarrassing than pleasing. He always says he is a part of a team and that others came before him. Unfortunately for Stephens, he is liked, admired and held in very high regard. At this time in his life he has no escape ... he must face up to the compliments. W eve watched for 11 years as Norm Stephens led by example being down to earth, always learning, treating people and problems with fairness, generosity and imagination, volunteering his services and consistently engaged in the community. He leaves a vibrant, wellrunning institution for the new president, Thomas Leitzell, to make even more exciting. Highlands County is fortunate to have been the center of Norm Stephensattention and energy. We owe him a lot. So, how do you say goodbye to a man like that? This way: Thank you, Norm. We wish you well. Have fun. Farewell ... and thanks How do you say goodbye when someone retires especially when you dont really want him to go? When House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi spoke b efore progressive activists at the Netroots Nation recently, she became a symbol of a split lurking within the Democratic and R epublican parties that could undercut impact the 2016 Presidential race. The reason: Pelosi was booed in a seeming throwb ack to the 1960s, when the Democratic Partys left wing p erceived the government run by its party as an almost e vil, dangerous force, pitting anti-war Democrats against the more professional politician types. Democrats have battled each other over milit ary related issues under Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Lyndon Baines Johnson, and during the primaries for the 2008 Democratic Party presi dential nomination. Pelosis sin? She had dared to diss a person who has become a hero to many in the Democratic Partys left wing grassroots and in the Republican Partys nonestablishment right wing grassroots: Edward Snowden, the former NSA contract worker who leaked information that NSAcollects data from millions of Americans with the cooperation of several large internet and telecom companies, and that Great Britains intelligence agency GCHQ monitored delegatesphones. Hes the latest to join the ranks of what writer Robert Levine calls the transparency Messiahs, who saw themselves as above the law, selfappointed messiahs able to make policy decisions over and above the elected officials of these nations. Pelosi sin was to say theres a need to balance privacy and security and noting that Snowden did violate the law in terms of releasing those documents. For stating this fact Pelosi was booed and someone even yelled You suck! providing yet more evidence of how (uh, oh here come the False Equivalency Police) the left and right often in their tendency to somehow consider insult-hurling and name-calling the same as thoughtful political comment. The split among Democratic liberals on Snowden runs deep. Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) has called for Snowden to be prosecuted because he violated the law, he violated Americas trust, he jeopardized millions of Americans. Liberal talker Ed Schultz riled his listeners by saying Snowden is no hero or typical whistleblower, and if he was a patriot hed come home and face the music since he has so many supporting him in the United States. Liberal blogger Oliver Willis wrote: Two separate dispatches from Edward Snowden on Monday have continued to unravel the wannabe whistleblower and show him to be something of a simpleton in the way he views the world. In the real world countries spy on each other.This practice is not limited to enemies or countries with some hostility to each other, but even allies spy on each other to keep up with the Joneses. But for guys like Snowden and Bradley Manning and [Glen] Greenwald this is too much for them. The Great Satan (America) must never spy on others. In the GOP, theres now a split between libertarianinclined Republicans who admire Snowdens actions and strong-on-defense Republicans who consider him a traitor. This could impact both partiesraces for the 2016 Presidential nomination because for some voters itll be a litmus test. Nuance doesnt play well in primaries, so some voters in both parties could demand candidates declare one priority: private at all costs or security at all costs? Polls find Americans divided on Snowdens actions, with younger voters being more inclined to feel he did the right thing. Lost in all the reports about Snowden, his interviews, his possible motives, and people choosing sides is the question of the damage his revelations may have done and could do. An ABC News report began with this: As the U.S. intelligence community struggles to complete a damage assessment over the secret information allegedly stolen by NSAleaker Edward Snowden, sources told ABC News there is a growing consensus within the top circles of the U.S. government that the 30-year-old contractor could deal a potentially devastating blow to U.S. national security, If a future terrorist attack that matches or tops 9/11 occurs because Snowdens leaks removed existing prevention measures, or tipped off Americans must brutal enemies, look for the bulk of Americans to boo members of the Edward Snowden fan club.

He has appeared on cable news show political panels and is Editor-in-Chief of The Moderate Voice, an Internet hub for independents, centrists and moderates. He can be reached at jgandelman@themoderatevoice.com/. Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily those of the News-Sun staff. Snowdens revelations reveal Democratic and Republican splits John Roberts is a very patient man. Thirty years ago, as a young lawyer in Ronald Reagans Justice Department, he wrote memos attacking a landmark civil rights law that was enacted to ensure that all Americans, regardless of color, had the right to vote. And on Tuesday morning, as chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, he wrote the ruling that shreds the law. Conservatives will praise the 5-4 decision to gut the core provision of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, and they will conveniently ignore the irony that unelected judges have intrusively trumped the peoples elected representatives. Both houses of Congress had renewed the law four times since most recently in 2006 by a combined bipartisan vote of 488-22 precisely because there was overwhelming documented evidence of ongoing voter discrimination in states and localities with long histories of bad behavior. When Alabamas legal challenge was aired in the high court back in February, Roberts and his allies suggested that the voting rights law was no longer necessary; and besides, in the immortal words of Antonin Scalia, the law was a perpetuation of racial entitlement which was news to me, because Id never realized that equal access to the ballot was a racial entitlement. Plus, Roberts, in a ruling on an unrelated voting case back in 2009, had already signaled how he felt about the Voting Rights enforcement provision: It represents an intrusion into areas of state and local responsibility, and, besides, there was no longer a need for Justice to ride hard on the nine (mostly Southern) states that had a history of racism, because, as he put it, Things have changed in the South. Roberts basically said that the law is obsolete. He said that even though the law empowered the Justice Department to fight local racism, theres no such need anymore because that behavior doesnt exist anymore (he refers to eradicated practices). He did craft a fig leaf he invited Congress to revise and update the enforcement formula at the core of the law but thats a howler, because (as he well knows) this Congress cant even pass a farm bill, and is so dysfunctional that anything more complicated than a Boy Scout resolution strains its collective cognition. Thanks to the 2006 renewal of the law, which was supposed to extend until 2032, the Justice Department was able to thwart racism in 2012. Just two examples: When Texas Republicans enacted a voter-ID law that was crafted to disproportionately hurt minorities, Justice blocked it by invoking the laws oversight powers. When Florida Republicans tweaked their state rules in an attempt to reduce early voting hours in ways that disproportionately hurt minorities, Justice blocked it by invoking the laws oversight powers. Now those powers are gone. From now on, people who are turned away at the polls will have to file lawsuits at their own expense and only after the votersuppression schemes have already screwed them. Thats how the game worked before the Voting Rights Act went on the books in 1965. Roberts has turned back the clock. And how ironic that he has done so by overriding the peoples elected representatives specifically, the 2006 Republican House and 2006 Republican Senate, both of which concluded: years has not been a sufficient amount of time to eliminate the vestiges of discrimination following nearly 100 years of disregard for the dictates of the 15th (right to vote) Amendment and to ensure that the right of all citizens to vote is protected as guaranteed by the Constitution. So much for that bipartisan legislative sentiment; Roberts and his court allies opted instead to legislate from the bench. Conservatives typically use that phrase to complain about rulings they dislike but not today. The Human Events website is already praising the Supreme Court for taking away one of the clubs Attorney General Eric Holder has been using to beat common-sense voter identification laws into the dirt.

C M Y K By SCOTTDRESSEL editor@newssun.comAVON PARK The connection between Avon Park and baseball goes back to w hen the Hotel Jacaranda was the height of luxury and M ain Street was still a dirt road. Daniel Bedell, who grew u p in Avon Park before becoming a professional p hotographer, decided to return home last April to capture the current state of t hat connection on film (well, on digital pixels) as part of an ongoing project to d ocument his hometown. When he sent some of t hose pictures out in a marketing email to several different potential publishers, he got a quick response from one known as The W orldwide Leader in Sports ESPN. I heard back right away from one of the magazines photo editors, Stephanie Weed, Bedell, 29, said. She liked the images and w anted to know more about them and if there was any b ack story about the town and field, so I passed that on to her. The 22-photo presentation, titled Welcome to Baseball C ity, popped up on the ESPN website earlier this week. It features images Bedell took at Head Field, the Lucy Derkman Softball C omplex and the Durrah Martin Complex, along with descriptions of the scenes. The easiest way to see the spread is to go to www.espn.com and type Avon Park into the search box. You can also go to his website www.danielbedell.com and look in the Projects section to see even more photos. One of the images will be published in the issue of ESPN: The Magazine due out this week. Bedell is reasonably sure it will be the one of Cassie Dennis banging her head against the dugout wall during a youth softball game. Bedell laughed when recalling that picture. There was no anger or punishment. She was just bored and it wasnt quite time for her to be on deck. Bedell first started coming home to take pictures of life in Avon Park in the winter of 2011. Coming home was surpassingly great for several reasons, Bedell said. I barely was interested in photography while I lived there, at least not until the very end. Coming back as an adult about 10 years removed, you see the place ina totally different way. Youre looking for the beauty in the place and all the stuff you passed on by when you were just growing up there. Theres a lot of beauty and interesting things there that you just never see when youre not looking. Bedell, who worked for a time as a freelance writer and photographer for the News-Sun, said it was amazing to see the hometown that you lived in for 15 or 20 years and then realize you didnt see much of any of it ina lot of ways. His favorite photo in the baseball spread is the one knows the least about, a picture of a young girl looking up at her father as she prepares to take a swing at a ball on a tee. Theres something so genuine and sweet about that and it reminds you of when you were growing up and your parents still seemed kind of larger than life and heroic, he said. Bedell was excited when he realized the photos had been published on the website, but not just because of the professional accomplishment. Its not that its the biggest thing Ive ever had published, necessarily, but I guess its the most intimate thing that I cared about that Ive ever had published, he said. Going back to my hometown to shoot, it became really kind of special to me because I started to know the people, the pictures became more intimate and something I cared about. And then to have a major publication give them a stamp of approval. You always have these images that are kind of your babies that you care about, but you dont know if anybody else cares about. Its pretty great. I know its in their title, The Worldwide Leader,but they really are the worldwide leader in sports and to have them say these pictures are a good reflection of sports in the world is pretty awesome.

Stephens is a Gator, with three degrees from the University of Florida, a bachelor degree of science, a master degree of science and a doctorate in interdisciplinary science education. Joining the St. Petersburg Junior College faculty in 1968, he taught chemistry, environmental science and physics. During the summer, he taught basic math. As his career progressed, Stephens moved from the classroom into administration, becoming president of communit y colleges in Illinois, Michigan and Florida before arriving here in 2002 to follow in the footsteps of Dr. Catherine C ornelius. At the time many wondered how Stephens would be able to fill C orneliusshoes. Now many wonder how the incoming president, Thomas Leitzell, will fill his. In the 11 years of Stephenstenure the college has grown, encouraging more s tudents with new facilities, course selections and degree programs. At the same time, it has been recognized for excellence. Two years in a row it was one of 120 community colleges (out of a t otal 1,200) nominated for the Aspen Prize for Community College E xcellence. Credit, said Stephens, goes to the outstanding, student oriented faculty and t he strong, supportive administration team. And we couldnt have done it w ithout the county commission and the community. As to future SFSC goals, Stephens s aid more has to be done to improve access to continuing education and English as a second language. We have to remove obstacles, and we need to explore alternative funding sources. As to his own future, Stephens only smiles. Some travel will be nice, he said, and he may actually put his golf clubs to use. He will be playing his alto sax, do some professional writing and maybe even some consulting Ill be very picky. The thing he wont do is leave. Our four kids were born here. Our home is here, he said. Continued from A1 Photo by KATARASIMMONS Dr. Norman Stephens in academic regalia.

Continued from A1 Teen has been missing since June 20 Get the paper delivered to you! NEWS-SUN-6155 SANFORD (AP) A friend of Trayvon Martins who was on the phone with him shortly before his fatal fight with George Zimmerman testified Thursday that she thought the encounter was racially charged. Rachel Jeantel testified for the second day in a row, saying she thought race was an issue because Martin told her he was being followed by a white man. He was being followed, Jeantel said. Her answer came in response to questioning from defense attorney Don West about why she had given differing accounts about what she had heard over the phone when Martin first encountered Zimmerman on a rainy night on Feb. 26, 2012, at the Retreat at Twin Lakes townhome complex. W est suggested in his cross-examination that 19year-old Jeantel had raised the racial issue in some accounts but not others. In some accounts, West implied, Jeantel said Zimmerman responded one way when he first encountered Martin, but in other accounts she said he responded another way. Jeantel gave her version of events in a deposition, in a letter to Martins mother and in a recorded interview with an attorney for the Martin family. Jeantel is one of the prosecutions most important witnesses because she bolsters the contention that Zimmerman was the aggressor. She was on the phone with Martin moments before he was fatally shot. Jeantel testified Wednesday that her friends last words were Get off! Get off! before the phone went silent. But on Thursday, under crossexamination, she conceded that she hadnt mentioned that in her account of what happened to Martins mother, Sybrina Fulton.

Though wedding bells m ay be weeks away, samesex couples and their supporters filled city blocks of San Francisco and West Hollywood on Wednesday n ight to savor the longawaited decisions as thumping music resounded. Today the words emblazoned across the Supreme C ourt ring true: equal justice under law, said Paul Katami, one of the plaintiffs who challenged Californias gay marriage ban, as he celebrated in West Hollywood. In one of two 5-4 rulings, the high court cleared the way for gay marriages to resume in California, holding that the coalition of religious conservative groups that qualified a voterapproved ban for the ballot did not have the authority to defend it after state officials refused. The justices thus let stand a San Francisco trial courts ruling in August 2010 that overturned the ban. In the other, the court wiped away part of a federal anti-gay marriage law, the Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, putting legally married gay couples on equal federal footing with all other married Americans, allowing them to receive the same tax, health and pension benefits. The court sidestepped the larger question of whether banning gay marriage is unconstitutional, and states other than California and the 12 others where gay couples already have the right to wed were left to hash out the issue within their borders. As the sun set on San Francisco, a crowd surged from hundreds to several thousand in the citys Castro neighborhood, with rainbow flags and confetti filling the air. James Reynolds, 45, was among the revelers, saying he had been married to his partner of 23 years several times, including once in California. Its been taken away from us, Reynolds said as he stood in a crosswalk near the barrier blocking off the street for the celebration. But well be married again. In Southern California, an all-day celebration in West Hollywood grew to hundreds by night, including many gay couples dressed in red, white and blue and one sign that read Today we are American. Brendan Banfield, 46, stood on the very spot under a tree in West Hollywood Park where in 2008 he married his partner, Charles, becoming one of an estimated 18,000 couples that got married during the 4 1/2 four months when gay marriage was legal in California. I want to cry, Banfield said. Its been a long journey. Im grateful Im alive to see it.

Macbeth recommended the countys public information o fficer compile a database of established religious congreg ations gleaned from the Yellow Pages and consultation with chambers of comm erce. Chaplains who serve in one or more fire or law e nforcement departments may also be on the list if they wish. The resolution makes it clear prayer is voluntary; no one may be forced. Macbeth raised the issue during his scheduled time to report. It was not on the agenda. I do advise you to pass the resolution, Macbeth said. It has not been unusual for ministers from the community to (be selected) without rhyme or reason. You have to have a consistent practice. The item did not need to be on the agenda, he added, because it was a commission policy decision, but commissioners refused to bring it to a vote without public hearings. It is on the agenda for the morning meeting July 2. Continued from A1 By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentAVON PARK It was a bumpy start Wednesday morning as the newly reconstituted Avon Park Charter Review Committee convened at the city council chambers to have a look at a pending update of a proposed new charter. In attendance were committee members George Hall, Lester Roberts and Joe Wright. Two committee members were not able to attend. Jim Barnard was out of town while former councilman Doug Eason reportedly declined to participate further in the process. Also at Wednesdays session were City Attorney Gerald Buhr; current councilman Parke Sutherland, who is the councils liaison to the committee; his wife Maria Sutherland, who is Avon Park Administrative Services director; and City Clerk Cheryl Teitjen. Hall called the meeting toa halt within the first half hour when it was discovered that none of the three committee members had the same revised copy of the document to work from and all three differed from the attorneys version. Described as a work in progress, Hall said it had been difficult for the committee to make its way through the charter as there had been adjustments and revisions made each time it was reviewed. This time was no exception. In fact, Hall said there had been wholesale changes made to the drafts the committee had received. He pointed to the re-insertion of an entire section on investigations. Although there are some provisions for that in the current charter, those had been removed from the new document in an effort to produce a streamlined version. However, the way the new section had been written, any member of staff could begin his or her own investigation. Committee members agreed that the power to begin investigations should rest with the city council itself. Another portion of the proposed new document that had not been included in committee copies would allow four members of the council to get together and remove a fifth for things such as failure to appear at a number of meetings. Hall said that the manner in which that portion of the statute had been formulated might be construed to be that four members of a council could conceivablygang up on a fifth council person and oust them. That issue came to light as Hall was reading the statute aloud and Buhr questioned the portion of language, indicating a comma had been included where one had previously not occurred. I am not familiar with legalese, Hall said, but commas and punctuation can change things in a document like that. Although the committee had been pressed to come up with a recommendation and a vote at Wednesdays initial session, Hall said he would call for a second meeting on Monday morning with a goal of producing a final version with which all committee members would be satisfied. We are then going to have each committee member sign the final document and initial each page so that we are certain that whatever the council sees is the version that we all agreed upon, Hall said. City charter review team hits roadblock Committee members dont have same document, so meeting halted News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY (From left) Highlands County Commissioners Greg Harris, Jack Richie, James Brooks and Don Elwell, during the invocation at the Tuesday night meeting.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunMULBERRYThe Mulberry Dixie Youth Belles played in the District 5 championship this past weekend and won it all with no runs scored against them throughout the whole tournament. There are five girls on the team that played for Mayhem fast pitch which JTTanner coached for a little over a year with Mike G ardner, the manager of the Mulberry Belles team. JTand his family became a personal friend to us. The girls wore the letters JT on their jerserys in remembrance of one of the best coaches that had ever stepped foot on a softball field. JTalways pushed them to their limits and the hard work he put into them payed off this past weekend, especially when two of his former girls made history in Mulberry and hit outof-the-park home runs for the first time. Toward the end of the teamssecond game, they were winning 16-0 when the sun suddenly seemed to be brighter than ever as it fell behind the clouds and above the sun was another ray of light out of nowhere. The girls told Coach Mike thats JTpraising us for the playing we have done. He was truly an angel on their side. The team has advanced to the state level where they will begin play on Friday, July 5. When I was growing up, my Dad always told us boys that if we wanted to become good at sports, we needed to spend time with people who were better than we were. Of course, he was referring to football, basketball and baseball. He always said if you compete against someone with less skill or knowledge, you may feel pretty good about yourself being the best against your competition but youll never become great. My brothers and I learned this lesson well and became strong, competitive athletes in all the major sports. But I believe this bit of knowledge is applicable to fishing as well. Ive had the benefit of fishing with and against some of the best fishermen in the world. And Ive learned many things over the past 50 years. But the most important thing Ive learned is that knowledge is the key to success in anything you do, and that you can never stop learning. I live about 3-4 miles from Lake Jackson, and like a lot of fishermen, its a pretty convenient lake to fish if you can find the fish. My style of fishing, primarily flippin and pitchin works best on lakes like Istokpoga, Okeechobee and Walk-in-Water. Ive always looked at Lake Jackson, like other fishermen, as more of a recreational lake, and a tough lake to fish. Adishpan lake, with a shallow shore-lines and little to no vegetation, Lake Jackson poses a challenge to most fishermen. When the water level is high, docks can offer some opportunities, as well as early morning shoreline casting. But when the lake is at a lower level, such as it is now, you really have to know the lake in order to consistently catch bass. Heeding my fathers advice, I called an old friend, Paul Tardiff, to see if he could assist me in learning how to fish this lake be tter. Paul is a recognized expert on Lake Jackson. Hes fished the lake consistently for years and knows more about the lake and where to fish than anyone I know. He had invited me to join him months ago, so I gave him a call and we headed out on his boat last week. Even on Istokpoga, Okeechobee and Walk-inWater, the fishing can get tough during the dog days of summer. Bass will often go deep into the vegetation as the water warms or in the case of a deeper lake like Jackson, theyll congregate in deeper water over underwater structure. Paul knows where the underwater structure is on Lake Jackson and he was more than happy to share that information with me. Fishing, as most of you know, has become a much more sophisticated sport than it was years ago. Todays electronics, combined with memory enhanced electric motors make the job considerably easier, but you have to learn how to use the equipment. Paul uses a side-reading depthfinder that can isolate an underwater structure and he combines the GPS coordinates into his electric motor to maintain his position while he works the structure. Its amazing whats located on the bottom of a lake. Rockpiles, brushpiles, humps and sunken boats all provide the type of structure that bass love to inhabit. Often, the structure can be located at depths of 20 feet or more and the fish will hover above or under. Most depthfinders will SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Friday, June 28, 2013 BAYARD ADVERTISING INC; 11.25"; 1.5"; Black plus three; process, IO026000 HCA-East FL; 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 3 0 0 8 8 8 8 6 6 Page B3 Fishin Around...

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAculture of winning is catching on and spreading through Lake Placid athletics. After a school year that saw five district championships won for Dragon teams, another title was just won by the Lake Placid Dixie Belles (ages 13-15) softball team. After years of frustration, this years squad, which includes many varsity and junior varsity Lady Dragons, was lead to victory by head coach Todd Moore and assistants Linette Wells and Christy Krett. The Belles squad earned itsticket to the big dance of the State Tournament by taking the first two games of the best of three against Okeechobee last weekend by 10-7 and 14-6 scores. That first game was the key, coach Moore said. Winning gave the girls momentum and the confidence they needed. But they found themselves in an early hole as Okeechobee jumped out with two in the first and another in the second for a 3-0 lead. But Lake Placid quickly evened things up in the bottom of the second of what would be a back-and-forth battle.

Our first stop, one of Pauls favorite brushpiles produced three bass in a matter of minutes. Fishing a plastic worm on a Carolina Rig, or a deep diving crankbait, the fish were obviously anxious to feed. As the first spot slowed down, we moved to a second and then a third location, catching bass everywhere we stopped. It was interesting to see the bass come up and bust bait fish, and then retreat to their deep water home. Although we didnt catch any huge bass, Paul is confident they are in there. His personal wallhanger was 15.2, and hes caught many bass out of Lake Jackson in the 8-10 pound range. We finished the day with 15-16 bass, the largest a 5 1/2 pounder caught by Paul. It was a real learning experience for me and a trip Ill remember for years to come. Years ago, I used to hold weekly bass tournaments on many of the area lakes and when I moved back to Ohio in 2006, Paul continued the weekly tournaments for a number of years. Weve decided to join forces and begin another weekly tournament starting in July on Lake Jackson. Paul will be the official weigh-master, while Ill be responsible for livewell and time checks. Our plan is to hold the first tournament on Lake Jackson Wednesday, July 10, from 7:30 a.m. to Noon and every Wednesday thereafter. The tournament will be open to anyone and can be fished by one or two anglers in a boat. All anglers must remain in their boats during the tournament hours. Entry fee will be $20 per tournament, with $15 going to the winner and $5 going to second place finishers. The event will be confined to Lake Jackson (and not Little Lake Jackson) using artificial baits with a 14-inch size limit and a 3 fish boat limit. Boats must be in the water by 7:30 a.m. in order to participate. Anglers reporting in after 12:05 p.m. will be disqualified. Time check will take plac e prior to take off. You can pay at the ramp the morning of the tournament. Wed like to invite you all to participate, the more boats the better. For more information call Paul at 863-273-4062, or gi ve me a call at 863-273-4998. Hope to see you there!

Highlands Youth Football registration STARS strike success Bass tournament on the horizon walked to load the bases. Nicole Moore then cleared them with a double to tie it at 3-3. Lake Placid took the lead in the third on a tworun, inside-the-park home run from Gobourne, but Okeechobee battled back to tie it again in the fourth. In the bottom of the frame, Moore doubled and proceeded to steal third and home, with Amy Platt then walking, stealing second and coming in on a Titi Toliver hit. The junior Lady Brahmans again tied it with two in the top of the sixth to make it 7-7 but the ladies of Lake Placid had one more game clinching rally in them. Leah Moore drove Gobourne and Holly Krett home and Nicole Moore would drive Douglas in for what would stand up to be the 10-7 win. Krett closed out the game by striking out the side in the seventh, following two innings of work by starter Douglas and four solid innings by Dustie Gibson. The momentum carried over into the second game as Gobourne batted in Savannah Dixon in the first, with Douglas, Nicole Moore and Platt all scoring in the second for a 4-0 lead. Asix-run explosion in the third seemed to all but put the game away with a 10-0 lead. But Lake Placids six runs were matched in the bottom of the third off a pair of relievers, and suddenly the massive lead had shriveled to 10-6. But Krett came back in to pitch the remaining innings and would shut Okeechobee down the rest of the way. The offense, meanwhile, added a Dixon run in the fourth and scores from Douglas and Nicole Moore in the fifth. Later, an insurance run was added when Jillian Rykaceski drew a walk and came around on a Nicole Moore double, her fourth hit of the game. But insurance was not needed as Krett kept the Brahmans at bay, striking out nine for the game, 12 on the day, and securing Lake Placids first ever Dixie Softball District Championship. This moves the girls on to the Florida Dixie Youth Softball State Tournament, scheduled for July 4-9 in Brooksville. Also moving on to State is the Lake Placid Ponytails team, ages 1112 and coached by Reggie Jones. And the winning culture in Lake Placid sports continues to build.

C M Y K By GEORGE JAHN Associated PressVIENNA The U.N. drug control agency on Wednesday sounded the alarm on the spread of designer drugs, which are sold openly and produce legal but sometimes deadly highs, while reporting that global drug use generally remains stable. Such substances can be far more dangerous than traditional drugs, the agency said in a statement accompanying its annual report. Street names, such as spice,meow-meowand bath saltsmislead young people into believing that they are indulging in lowrisk fun. Asix-page summary of the report by the U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime warned that the international drug control system is foundering, for the first time, under the speed and creativity of their proliferation. It said countries worldwide reported 251 such substances by mid-2012, compared with 166 at the end of 2009. The problem, said the report, is hydra-headed in that as fast as governments ban the drugs, manufacturers produce new variants. Nearly 5 percent of European Union residents aged between 15 and 24 have already experimented with such drugs, said the report. In the United States, 158 kinds of synthetic drugs were circulating during 2012, more than twice as many as in the EU, and use was growing in East and Southeast Asia, including China, Indonesia, Japan, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. Gil Kerlikowske, director of the U.S. Office of National Drug Control Policy, said the United States faces continuing challenges with prescription drug abuse and new synthetic drugs. But he also noted successes, saying on the sidelines of a meeting in Vienna for the reports launch that U.S. cocaine use has decreased by 50 percent since 2006, due in part to better drug education and increased amounts seized. In a statement accompanying the organizations 151page report, UNODC head Y ury Fedotov said that while drug use and production overall appears to be stable in recent years, illicit drug consumption still kills around 200,000 people each year. However, the office lowered its estimate of the number of people injecting drugs and those living with the HIVvirus worldwide because of such injections. It said 14 million people between the ages of 16 and 65 inject drugs and of those, 1.6 million have the virus as a result of such injections 12 percent and 46 percent less respectively than last estimated five years ago. In other findings, the agency reported: heroin and opium use remains steady at around 16.4 million people, or 0.4 percent of the worlds adult population. heroin use appears to be declining in Europe, with users aging and because of more efficient drug seizures by authorities. cocaine use, although still rare, appears to be growing in China and Hong Kong as shown by seizures of the drug, apparently reflecting the growth of a more affluent society. U.S. cocaine use fell by 40 percent between 2006 and 2011, due in part to less production in Colombia, more efficient law enforcement and disruptive turf wars among drug cartels. seizures of amphetamine-type drugs rose by 66 percent in 2011 compared with the year before, to 123 tons. the use of ecstasy, one such drug, is declining globally but appears to be growing in Europe. The AMAjust classified o besity as a disease. That lets us junk food eaters and in-between meal snackers off the hook. Now we have an excuse. We are sick. Even the IRS recognizes that treatment for obesity can qualify for tax deductions. If you agree with the definition that a disease is s omething that impairs b ody function, then obesity qualifies. It affects the j oints, especially knees, may cause Type II diabetes, causes sleep apnea and other problems. It certainly seems to be epidemic. The AMAsays that part o f their declaration that it is a disease is because it is not j ust a result of poor lifestyle choices. Some of the problem is our busy lifestyle. Today, all the adults in the household often work. Kids have to be ferried to soccer, baseball, chorus and more. There is little time to cook. Fast food is so easy and tastes delicious. One survey estimates that about 1 in 4 Americans eat some type of fast food every day. We eat 29 pounds of French fries a year and the two most popular vegetables are corn and potatoes. The AMAthinks that calling obesity a disease will get doctors to talk to their patients more about weight and a healthier lifestyle. With decreasing reimbursements and an aging population, doctors often do not have the time for extensive counseling. So what can you do? Astudy of the eating habits of thin versus obese people found that the thin people stopped eating when they were full no matter how much was on their plate. This can be a hard one, especially if it is a food you really like. One lady interviewed after losing a great deal of weight said that she did it by eating foods she did not like so she was not tempted to overeat. This worked well until she decided that she liked some of them. Abetter way is to put less on your plate. Some restaurants are beginning to offer small plates. Some will let you split an entre. When we were little, we ate a little meat and lots of vegetables and fruit. My mom was feeding five of us on a rural clergy salary. We were given lots of produce and we ate all of it. Turns out she was really smart as this is one of the new healthy diet recommendations lots of vegetables (not just corn and potatoes) and fourounce portions of meat. Fruit makes a great dessert, especially since we have oranges, melons, strawberries, blueberries and peaches locally. If you need to find a quick meal, there are healthy fast foods such as rotisserie chicken, either plain or used in stir fry, smoked meat by the pound from the barbecue restaurant with your own vegetables and salad, and Japanese or Chinese stir fry carryout. It is just as easy to make two meals and freeze one for a later fast food meal. Chili, spaghetti sauce and stews actually taste better for the next meal. Try some of the quick meal ideas such as the ones demonstrated at Publix. They have calories on the recipe cards that you can take home. If you make small changes, such as switching low fat products for full fat or switching lower calorie but tasty dishes for fast food hamburgers and fries, you will be healthier in the long run and might even lose a few pounds.

Glucosamine helps, but even after six months, Im still stiff and riddled with pain. What else can I do? D.Y., Sarasota Answer: Youre not alone; 27 million Americans live with osteoarthritis (OA) and the affliction worsens over time. Left untreated, it can completely disable you, so luckily you are doing something. I like glucosamine. I prefer the glucosamine sulfate form over other forms, because it provides sulfur to the body... sulfur, not to be confused with sulfa, a drug that many people are allergic to. OAalways involves proinflammatory cytokines; youve heard me mention those before. Cytokines are pain-causing chemicals. But get used to the word cytokine, I use it frequently in my writings. Cytokines arent bad until your body pumps them out in excess, and thats exactly what happens with OA, and its exactly what you need to reduce. That controls pain and improves range of motion. Ibuprofen reduces the cytokines called prostaglandins and IL-1B. You want that. Glucosamine isa precursor for glycosaminoglycans and that is a component of joint cartilage. Consider these: MSM This is a sulfurbased compound that is actually a by-product of DMSO (DMSO is applied topically to joints, but its intended for vet purposes. The FDAdoesnt like humans using it even though many of you do). Anyway, MSM, an oral supplement, is sold at health food stores and does wonders for joint pain. Bromelain This pineapple extract gets mixed reviews. One study found it to be as effective as diclofenac, a prescription anti-inflammatory. I personally like this and frequently recommend it. Devils Claw Slightly more exotic, devils claw is so named because of its hooked fruit. A2011 study from Phytotherapy Research, concluded that the herb could block the release pro-inflammatory cytokines. In another study, Devils claw performed as well as the prescription drug Vioxx (now off the market, however Celebrex, which is safer, does remain). The point is that Devils claw is strong; it interacts with medicine. Ask your doctor if its right for you. Boswellia Aresin from a tree. A2013 study from the Journal of Headache and Pain studied the biological active ingredients in boswellia (pentacyclic triterpene acids) for their potent anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties. Boswellic acid is another major active ingredient. This is (in my mind) mother natures ibuprofen. This may sound obvious, but take pressure off your joints. Extra weight does no favor to your painful knees and hip joints. You may have to start gently with yoga, or Tai Chi, but keep those joints moving. And finally, consider ramping up immunity, some forms of arthritis are due to infections, either fungal, viral or bacterial. Compounds in green tea reduce the cytokine called TNF alpha, often high in arthritic conditions. One cup of green (or matcha) tea could beat up germs and improve immunity. The Ltheanine it contains is relaxing too. Drink it daily. Suzy Cohen is a registered pharmacist and the author of The 24-Hour Pharmacist and Real Solutions. For more information, visit www.

Ronald De Genaros message will be Passing the Mantle. Biblical reference is from 2 Kings 2:6-14. Continued from B7 T wo very rich but evil brothers once used their money to keep their sinful ways from the publics eye. To further hide the truth, t hey worshiped together with the same congregation and put on the faces of perfect Christians. When the local preacher retired, a new one w as hired. Not only could the new preacher see right through the brothersdecept ions, but he was also one to speak boldly the indisputable truth of Gods word. In time, the local church swelled in its numbers. The c ongregation decided it was necessary to build a new church building, so funds w ere contributed to the effort. However, there was n ot enough money raised to complete the job. Suddenly, one of the brothers died. The remaining brother sought out the new p reacher the day before the funeral and handed him a c heck for the amount needed to finish paying for the new church building. I have o nly one condition, he said. At his funeral, you must s ay that my brother was a saint. The preacher agreed and deposited the check. The next day at the funeral, the preacher held nothing back. He declared, The deceased was an evil man. He cheated on his wife and abused his family. He was a liar and a thief. Only a handful has ever existed with fewer morals. Then, the preacher concluded with, But, compared to his brother, he was a saint! 1 John 3:17-20 reads, But whoever has the worlds goods, and sees his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him? Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth. We will know by this that we are of the truth, and will assure our heart before Him in whatever our heart condemns us; for God is greater than our heart and knows all things. No matter who we are on the outside, God knows who we are on the inside. Since He knows all things, He also knows our hearts. We may be able to hide the truth from those around us, but there is no such thing as hiding the truth from God. Whether it be now or later, the truth will be revealed. Therefore do not go on passing judgment before the time, but wait until the Lord comes who will both bring to light the things hidden in the darkness and disclose the motives of men's hearts; and then each man's praise will come to him from God.

Hi, my name is Pastor Reinhold Buxbaum from The Church of the Way, and I would like a word with you. Not too long ago I read that information doubles every six months. That is fantastic, except I cannot keep up with it. I clearly remember when the only computer game was ping pong on my TVscreen. I thought it was the greatest and final invention. Have you gone to an arcade in a mall lately? I thought I was watching a movie until I was told that it is all computer generated. Stuff is getting a little scary out there. They are working on bending light and making people invisible. It is supposed to help soldiers in a war, but what about right here at home? I would not want someone invisible in my neighborhood. The drones are enough of a concern for me. I cant see them, but they can see me? How spooky is that? There are now vehicles driving in America without a driver. They are controlled long distance like a drone. They better not run into car trouble. And how do they gas up? With an invisible person? I dont know about you, but I understand my mom more and more when she said she does not fit into this age anymore. Of course it should not come as a surprise to us, because the Bible talks about this in the end times. Listen to the Prophet Daniel, he received much information about the end times from an angel he was told to roll up the scroll and seal it for the time of the end. And then the angel tells him: Many will go here and there to increase knowledge. (Daniel 12:4, NIV). Many will go here and there could be interpreted as travel. That too is at an incredible increase. But the knowledge part is right out amazing. Daniel lived 2,600 years ago and the increase in knowledge was minimal until just the last 150 years or so. But now it is taking off like a rocket. Have you seen those new robots? You would think there is a real person in there. But what does that all tell me? That we are living in the time of the end, according to the angel telling Daniel. What else does the Bible tell us will happen? Jesus will come back. And I cant wait. According to Paul in I Thessalonians 4:17 the believers in the end times will be caught up (raptured) into heaven. Sounds too good to be true? You believe robots and invisible men and cars without drivers? Then lets believe God and Jesus and the Bible. Yes, the stage is set for the second coming of Jesus.

Walker Snapshots By BRADYMcCOMBS Associated PressSALTLAKE CITY The common image of Mormon missionaries has long been two young men wearing white shirts and ties walking through neighborhoods, knocking doorto-door. But in a few years, that image may be replaced by one of young Mormons sitting with an iPad, typing messages on Facebook. Recognizing the world has changed, leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints leaders announced Sunday night that missionaries will do less door-to-door proselytizing, and instead, use the Internet to recruit new church members. The strategy shift reflects the growing importance of social media and peoples preference to connect over sites such as Facebook rather than opening their homes to strangers, church leaders said. The way in which we fulfill our responsibilities to share the gospel must adapt to a changing world, said Elder L. Tom Perry of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles during a presentation to mission presidents in Provo, Utah, that was broadcast worldwide. The move is the latest example of the LDS churchs gradual embrace of the digital age, and a recognition that door-todoor proselytizing is not the most effective way to expand church membership, church scholars said. Many of the details about how the social media work will be carried out by missionaries and monitored by mission presidents have yet to be ironed out, church officials said. But its clear that the new rules mark a significant change in the way the church governs Internet access for missionaries. Previously, Internet use for missionaries was limited to once a week and only for communicating with friends and family back home or accessing official church sites. Those rules were designed to reduce distractions and temptations for missionaries expected to devote all their attention to serving the Lord, while leaving behind personal affairs. The announcement comes as the church sends more missionaries around the globe than at any time in history. There has been an unprecedented surge of missionaries since the churchs announced in October that it was lowering the minimum age for missionaries from 21 to 19 for women and from 19 to 18 for men. Mormons to use less knocking, more typing MCT The traditional Mormon way of delivering their message knocking on doors will be less common as the church switches to a more digital approach in the future.

C M Y K DearAbby: I have been divorced for almost 15 years. In that time, my ex-husband has been self-employed and works out of his home. He rarely leaves his house, and I think he suffers from depression. At a school honors event for our daughter for which most of the attendees dressed for the occasion, he arrived in dirty shorts and a T-shirt. I sat next to him to be polite, until I realized he also smelled awful. When I tried to excuse myself saying I needed a better seat for my camera, he got up, too! It was an unpleasant two hours. I felt bad for the others in our vicinity. I have tried to suggest that he may suffer from depression in the past, but he denies it. Is there anything I can say that wont be resented (with him possibly showing up even more disheveled the next time just out of spite)? Unpleasant Situation, Gettysburg, Pa. DearUnpleasant Situation: While you may have ended your marriage 15 years ago, it doesnt appear you have truly divorced yourself from your ex. Rather than having pussyfooted around the reason you wanted to change your seat, you should have told him it was because he smelled like a goat and showed he lacked enough respect for those around him and his daughter to shower and put on clean clothes. He may or may not suffer from depression. Because he denies it, there is no way you can force him into treatment. You are no longer responsible for his attire or his welfare. Because youre concerned that he may show up looking more disheveled out of spite, you have my permission to distance yourself if it happens. And if your daughter is embarrassed by his attire, she has every right to talk to her father about it. DearAbby: Im a smallbusiness owner. I have an educational supply and toy store. Business has been pretty good, even through the hard times. My problem is my customerschildren are about to put me out of business. They are out of control. They climb on shelving, open products, tear things apart and throw screaming tantrums. Their parents let them run through the store like its a playground. I have signs posted at the entrance and around the store reminding parents to attend to their children. We have lost a lot of inventory due to these brats, and my time is consumed trying to keep them in line instead of working with my customers. I dont go to their homes and wreck them. I wish theyd show the same respect for my business. Thanks for any advice you can offer. Had It With Overindulged Kids DearHad It: If possible, designate a small area of your store where kids can go to play while their parents are shopping. Also, post a sign at the cash register that reads: Customers Will Be Charged for Broken or Damaged Items. The problem you are experiencing is one that is shared by many other retailers. If any of them are reading this column, Id love to know how they resolved this problem. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

Refreshing because carefree action absurdity, once the province of the summer cinema, is on the outs. S olemnity even for caped, flying men in tight-fitting trousers is in. But theres an inarguable, senseless pleasure in watching Jamie Foxx, as the presid ent of the United States, kicking a terrorist and shouti ng: Get your hands off my Jordans! Hail to the chief, indeed. White House Down follows Antoine Fuquas Olympus Has Fallen, released in March, as the second movie this year to imagine an assault on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The t wo films are very similarly plotted, but White House D own is notably less serious, more content to loosen the strings and acknowledge i ts own inherent preposterousness. This becomes particularly crystalized somewhere around the time Foxxs P resident James Sawyer and his rescuer, Channing Tatums wannabe secret service agent, are careening across the White House lawn i n the presidents limo while terrorists shoot in pursuit. Onlookers behind a fence media, regular people, the Army merely gape in a we, as if frozen by the idiocy. White House Down is most entertaining when its a s imple, ludicrous buddy movie, with Tatum and Foxx fleeing across the White House grounds, dropping one-liners as they go, eluding a gang of assailants led by a bitter turncoat (James W oods) and his ferocious henchmen (including Jason Clarke, swapping sides in the war on terror following Zero Dark Thirty). This is a kind of coronation for Tatum as a movie star. Hes now reached the level that he can breeze through a blatantly silly movie and look none the worse for it. Hes John Cale (not to be confused with the Velvet Underground musician, although, how could you?), a Silver Star veteran of Afghanistan and a police bodyguard to the speaker of the house (Richard Jenkins). For his Secret Service interview at the White House, hes brought along his politics-obsessed 11year-old daughter (the promising Joey King). But it goes poorly, partly because his would-be boss turns out to be an old flame (Maggie Gyllenhaal) who doubts hes grown up. Theres some reason to believe her, since Cale (in the mold of most action heroes) is an absentee, divorced dad. Its an archetype defined by Bruce Willis in Die Hard, a movie White House Down apes right down to the wife-beater tank top. When the Capitol dome is detonated and the White House invaded, Cale is separated from his daughter and stumbles into the kidnapping of the president. From there, its a series of chases through the handsome, recreated halls of the White House, where golden light filters in through venetian blinds but seemingly scant security measures exist. Emmerich, the director of spectacles like Independence Day (a movie he references in White House Down) and 2012, has made blowing up the White House something of a fetish, having already done it in both of those movies. Its a style of blockbuster that now feels dated, like a s kind of big-budget moviemaking that depends on explosions, flashes of comedy and star charisma. The charm of Tatum toned but goofy carries the film. Foxx, a more gifted comic actor, is left offscreen for large chunks. His president is a kind of liberal fantasy version of Barrack Obama, boldly removing all troops from the Middle East, thereby sparking the fury of the Beltways white power players. White House Down a silly, but refreshing, throwback MCT Channing Tatum (left) and Jamie Foxx star in White House Down. Movie Review White House Down Rating: PG-13 (prolonged sequences of action and violence including intense gunfire and explosions, some language and a brief sexual image) Running time: 137 minutes Review: (of 4)
