Aeromed provides the medical teams; Air Methods provides the helicopters and pilots. T he companies, however, are dissolving their union as of July 31, the date before a new five-year contract with the county comes into force. Each wants to become the sole provider. One reason for the break-up is because Tampa General canceled its contract with Air Methods, hiring Metro Transportation instead.

By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentS EBRING It appears that the groves in Highlands County have responded well to the precipitation that has occurred as of late, so says Highlands County Citrus GrowersA ssociation President Jim Snively in a recent report. There is a decent amount of flush and the fruit is starting to size up to where you can get somei dea of what kind of crop may be out there for next years harvest, he said. So far things look promising. H owever, said Snively, the new growth spurred by the rainfall has demonstrated stress on trees infected with the citrus greening disease. He said it makes for a devastatinge ffect. The full effect of tree decline and major fruit drop as seen last season wont become clearer until the trees get closer to the early/midh arvest. That wont be until later this summer or in early fall. There had been the expectation t hat local crops would be down considerably locally and that the trees would be showing the decline and small fruit which are indicative of greening, Snively did not see asm uch of those issues as hed expected during a recent trip to survey trees in Highlands and southern Polk counties.. There were some groves where t his was prevalent, but it was a minority to the healthy groves with what looked to be a decent crop for next season, he said. This trendc ontinued as we worked our way down through the Avon Park area. As Snively entered into Sebring, the conditions seemed to change. The trees looked a bit better thant hey had in the spring but seemed to be less vivacious. The crop definitely seems to be lighter in these areas, he reported Why there is a difference in t hese geographic locations when both areas were experiencing the same type of tree decline and fruit drop in the fall, winter, and springr emains an open question inasmuch as it seems both areas had received comparable rainfall over the past 45 to 60 days. There are many, many, quest ions to be answered, he said. Snively said he believes the industry will find the answers with continued research and hard work from the Citrus Research andD evelopment Foundation and other such entities.

The Florida attorney began by stating that Trayvon Martins death was at ragedy, and that George Zimmerman didnt have to shoot him. That said, Tannebaum emphasized that he wasnt there. ou werent there either Tannebaum wrote. You dont knoww hat happened, exactly. As much as you want to believe you were there and k now what happened, exactly, you werent, and you dont. Not knowing exactly what happened r equires a not guilty verdict, no matter how angry or outraged you are. T annebaum, who watched the trial and knows lawyers on both sides, wrote that the jury reached its verdict because of the facts and Florida law. The jurors who heard everything; w e didnt issued a reasonable verdict on the issue they had to decide: the criminal charge against Zimmerman. Tannebaum argued the state didnt have a great case, with no witnesses and a confusing tape recording. George Zimmerman is not guilty because the law says hes not guilty t he attorney wrote. You dont think its right that he killed Trayvon Martin, but thats not what the law says inF lorida where we like guns more than we like people. You have a problem w ith that, do something to change the l aw other than complain on social media. I know, youre busy, you wont. Thats for others to do. In closing, Tannebaum criticized broadcast news coverage and suggestedb etter vetting of TVpundits. Also, he urged the uninformed to quit criticizing the verdict and asked to put an end to misguided cries for an appeal. We believe the verdict does not mean a n endorsement of Zimmerman as a good guy, Martin as a bad guy deserving death, or many other noncriminal concerns that have come out in this case. Racism still exists in our country. T eenagers say and do stupid things and sometimes criminal things. Adults s ometimes say and do stupid things, too. But, Zimmerman did not murder Martin, so says the jury. An editorial from the Enid (Okla. E agle. Verdict reached due to facts, law In an enlightening post on his Criminal Defense blog, veteran criminal defense lawyer Brian Tannebaum cut to the chase about The Embarrassment Of The George Zimmerman Verdict. Saturdays verdict in the George Zimmerman trialh as sparked national outrage, and rightfully so. And y et, with much of the focus on race, there is an accomplice to Trayvon Martins death that has, to a surprising degree, escaped scrutinya nd a seat in the dockguns, and our lenient, permissive a pproach to them. The fact that its a repeat offender makes matters even worse. A lthough it wasnt technically utilized by Z immermans defense at the trial (they never filed the appropriate motion) F loridas stand your ground law, which abrogates the traditional common-law rule that required individuals to attempt tor etreat before using lethal force in self-defense, played a critical role in both the tragic events of Feb. 26, 2012, and in the legal caset hat followed. The law is just one examp le of a successful national campaign to expand ther ights of gun owners at the state levelan effort that has also involved statutes extending the range of locations where weapons can bep ermissibly carried, including schools, daycares, workplaces, bars, and athletic events. Indeed, several states, including Arkansasa nd South Carolina, now even permit gun owners to profane places of worship with their weapons. Some would take matters even further. Last January, a lawmaker in Colorado introduced a bill that would have prohibited businesses open to the public from banning guns, unless they themselves provided armed security. Another measure, put forward in February in Missouri, tried to make it a felony for legislators there to introduce a piece of legislation that further restricts the right of an individual to bear arms, as set forth under the second amendment of the Constitution of the United States, presumably as interpreted by the National Rifle Association. Supporters of legislation expanding gun rights typically deny that a link exists between our lax laws the public policy choices we have madeand the epidemic of gun violence plaguing our nation. These arguments are made against a moral horizon that assumes widespread private gun ownership is a positive good for society. Both are deadly wrong. Gun violence reaps a harvest of more than 30,000 souls, on average, every year in the United States. To put this number in perspective, thats nearly equal to the total number of American combat fatalities in the entire Korean War. And there is a link between gun control and gun violence as a recent study published online in JAMA Internal Medicine concluded, [a] higher number of firearm laws in a state are associated with a lower rate of firearm fatalities in thes tate, overall and for suicides and homicides indiv idually. Its a truth too many of our state legislators are either ignorant of, ors imply choose to ignore. Regardless, this much is c lear lenient gun laws lead to more gun violence, and a higher body count. O verall, stand your ground laws, in common with the range of other state measures seeking to expand gun rights, demonstrate con-t empt for human life and fetishize vigilantism and private violence. Vigilantism, in turn, actually makes society lesss ecure. This point is amply demonstrated by the Z immerman case its a veritable study in the bene-f its of leaving public safety to the professionals. But the Zimmerman case isnt alone Floridas experience with its standy our ground statute provides many other examples. As the Tampa Bay Times has reported, the law has been used successfully byd efendants in a number of cases involving shocking circumstances: One man killed two unarmed people and walked out of jail. Another shot a man as he lay on the ground. Others went free after shooting their victims in the back. In nearly a third of the cases the Times analyzed, defendants initiated the fight, shot an unarmed person or pursued their victim and still went free. More broadly, is there any doubt that Martin would still be alive if Zimmerman hadnt been armed on the night of the shooting? Or that the presence of a gun changed Zimmermans approach to their entire encounter, and the trajectories of both their lives? In the end, this case illustrates why more guns, carried by more people, in a wider range of places, that can be used under more circumstances, makes us all more insecure. If we want to prevent more tragic deaths like Trayvon Martins, then we need to turn some of our righteous anger against guns, and a system that places them all too easily into the hands of the George Zimmermans of the world. Would that wed convict them. Michael Stafford is a former Republican Party officer and the author of An Upward Calling. Email anupwardcalling@yahoo.com/. Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily those of the News-Sun staff. Guns get off again Guest Column M ichael Stafford The name is Monday. Agent Monday. I have an important job to do. Back in 2011 President Obama issued an executive order to root out security violators within the federal government people like Edward Snowden, our most recent leaker of government secrets. The president ordered federal employees to report suspicious activities among their co-workers any unusual behaviors, strange attitudes, financial troubles or unprecedented travel common to people who sell or leak secrets, the lousy rats. I am the lead agent in charge of investigating such people. My phone has been ringing off the hook. My first call took me to the Department of Health and Human Services. The people there have been interpreting Obamas massive 2,700 page health care law to write new regulations. It has ballooned to 20,000 pages of mandates and penalties that weigh 300 pounds and stand 7 feet tall. One of our employees read through every page and hes been acting odd ever since, a bureaucrat told me. He worried that the new rules will bankrupt the country. He leak this information to anyone? No, said the bureaucrat. When he tried to sneak the stack of regulations out the door, it fell on him, causing his unfortunate demise. Serves him right, I said, smiling. Just as I settled the ObamaCare case, my phone rang. An employee was acting out of line at the IRS. She has been coming in early and staying late, said the IRS bureaucrat. Weve never seen anything like it. Has she been targeting, harassing and auditing conservatives? I said. No. Does she spend money lavishly on expensive conferences and silly training videos? No, said the bureaucrat. Thats the problem. She refuses to do so. What a killjoy. Sounds like someone who is planning to sing. Unless someone makes it look like she was embezzling funds and her reputation is ruined? I like how you think, I said. Just then my phone rang again. We had a potential rat at the Environmental Protection Agency. eve tried to keep it quiet, said the EPAbureaucrat, but were using every means possible to re-interpret existing laws to create new regulations. Let me get this right, I said. Since the president cant pass the restrictive environmental laws he wants, his EPAis just making up new rules? Thats right, said the bureaucrat. We issued a slew of new regulations to curb U.S. carbon dioxide emissions, which we believe contribute to global warming. Coal plants are shutting down left and right. So whats the problem? e have an employee who is criticizing our lack of openness, said the bureaucrat. He says in a constitutional republic, new laws cannot be arbitrarily created in the executive branch which is essentially what we are doing. He says we are being unconstitutional. Good God, I said. You have been infiltrated by a conservative. Hell surely contact the press and sing. e expect not, said the bureaucrat. Since he was a conservative, it wasnt too hard for a government psychiatrist to diagnose him as mentally unfit. We put him on forced disability. Nicely played, I said. Some argue that government leakers are not the real problem our country is facing. The real problem is that our government has gotten too big, powerful and intrusive. They argue that the recent scandals are not isolated incidents that the scandals are what big government looks like. Maybe so, but that is not my concern. My only concern is this: I am Agent Monday and I have an important job to do.

I think if Trayvon had been white, this never would have happened. Martins parents said they support the f ederal government looking into the case. The Justice Department announced Sunday it plans to review the case to determine whether federal prosecutors should file criminal civil rights charges against Zimmerman.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID The Lake Placid Aquatics hosted the final local swim meet for the summer on Saturday, July 13, at the Lake Placid High School pool. The three teams involved were the Highlands Hurricanes Swim Team (HHST Placid Aquatics (LPA) and the Hardee Swim Association (HSA There were 94 swimmers (HHST32 swimmers, LPA 39 swimmers, HSA23 swimmers) competing in the swim meet, ranging in age from 5 to 20. The Lake Placid Aquatics girls team won the swim meet with a score of 585 with the Highlands Hurricanes Swim Team close behind at 578. The Lake Placid Aquatics boys team won their side of the swim meet with a score of 456 with the Highlands Hurricanes Swim Team a close second with 440. The Hurricanes had their fair share of winning events, with multiple swimmers getting at least one win on the day. Andrew Brown had a whopping four wins in the Boys Open division, while Griffin Chynoweth had three firsts and a second in the Boys 13-14. In the Girls Open division, Shannon Cummings had four wins, and Zach Geitner had three in the Boys 11-12. Robert Swaine and Peyton Ming also earned four first places for the Hurricanes, while Anna Summer became official a few weeks ago, and summertime bassinis here for the next few months. Hot, humid days, often becoming threatening with storm clouds by mid-afternoon, offer some of the years best fishing if you can stand the heat. Water temperatures are pretty much at or near the highest levels of the year and as a result, the bass are typically either in deep water or heavy vegetation. Both situations offer exciting opportunities to catch a wallhanger. With the heat of the day rapidly approaching 90 degrees by noon, summertime is the season to get up early and take advantage of the cooler temperatures the mornings offer. Typically theres also less chance of rain early, as most thunderstorms build during the day and occur anywhere from early to late afternoon. First light, usually around 6am this time of the year, provides the shallow water angler with many more choices than later in the day. With low light conditions, bass will move into the shallows to feed and a top water lures like a Zara Spook, Chug Bug or Devils Horse can provide some heart-stopping strikes. Spinnerbaits, buzz baits and frogs can also be good early morning choices, particularly if you are fishing around vegetation or docks. Slow-rolling the spinnerbaits or buzzing them on the surface work equally well. With all the rain weve had, look for moving water, typically coming into the lake from small feeder creeks. Bass will often stage at the mouth of these areas awaiting baitfish, worms, insects and whatever to be pushed along in the moving water. Agreat example of this is the mouth of Arbuckle By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK Better late than never, one might say. With more summer rains wreaking havoc on the Dixie M ajors and Pre-Majors State Tournament schedules, Team Heartland would have to wait nearly 24 hours for their 6-1, title-game win over Spring Hill and be crowned State Champions. Originally slated to take place at 7 p.m. Tuesday night, a soggy day saw games pushed back aplenty, with a Pre-Majors semifinal contest finally closing out nearly at midnight. Thus, the Majors semfinal match-up between Spring Hill and Hernando got underway at 9 a.m. Wednesday, with the PreMajors title game between East Polk and Chipley slated for 11:30 and the MajorsC hampionship to follow at 2 p.m. Those first two games got in, with Spring Hill continui ng their offensive onslaught with an 11-3 win over H ernando to put them in the M ajors finale. After Hernando had held them scoreless in Saturdays opening contest, Spring Hill saw their bats awaken to the tune of 35 runs in their next three games, including a 121 win over Wahneta and a 12-2 win over Hendry. And while the Pre-Majors title game finished in a timely manner, with East Polk eking out a 5-4 win over C hipley, Wednesdays afternoon downpour pushed the Majors championship contest back nearly three hours, with the rains halting and the field made playable shortly after 5 p.m. And whether it was the delay that quieted the Spring Hill bats in the climactic game, ora combination of the Heartland pitching and defense, they would find runs hard to come by as the game got under way and progressed. Clayton Mason got the start and got through a dicey first inning. After a single to left, two deep fly balls were tracked down by Heartland outfielders, though a hit-by-pitch followed. B ut Mason got a grounder to short, where Lane Crosson fielded and flipped to Ricky Miller at second for t he inning-ending fielders choice. T he Heartland offense l ooked like it might have something going when Seth Abeln lead off the bottom of the first with a single back through the middle and was moved to second on a Josh Townsend sacrifice bunt. But Brandon Rheas liner to center was snared by the S pring Hill pitcher, who caught Abeln in no-mans land and tossed to second to d ouble him off and end the inning. M ason then cruised through a perfect second, w ith a pop-out and groundout sandwiching a kneebuckling curve for a called third strike. Team Heartland then snuck their way onto the b oard when, with one out, Josh Baber drew a walk and gave way to pinch runner C olton Brock. Josh Gomez followed with a hit-by-pitch to put runners on first and second. T rey Marley smashed a hard liner to center, though it was caught and didnt allow the runners to move up. But they would during Kyle Cunninghams at bat, a s two wild pitches moved them to second and third and then to a score and third for a 1-0 lead. Mason continued to c ruise, retiring the side after a two-out walk in the top of t he third, and his teammates would add to the lead in the bottom of the frame. With one out, Abeln dou bled on a line-drive to righta nd came in easily when Townsend rocketed one into t he left-center field gap for an RBI triple. R hea then lashed a frozen rope to center that was c aught, but deep enough to allow Townsend to tag and come in for a 3-0 lead after SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, July 19, 2013 D AN HOEHNE/News-Sun Luis Martinez would not be able to quite reach home on this play at the plate against East Polk Tuesday in Dixie Pre-Majors State Tournament action at Head Field.

After having stunned heated rival East Polk County in Saturdays opening round, Heartland enjoyed Sunday off and stopped Chipley by a 4-0 score Monday. East Polk, meanwhile, was bent on revenge and would shut Hernando out, 5-0, in their early Monday game to set up a Tuesday rematch with the host boys in red. Chippy from the start, Tuesdays contest saw a few instances of things getting a little overheated on the field, in the stands and during a three-hour rain delay. But it looked like Heartland again had Polks number early on, taking a 10 lead in the bottom of the first. Alfred Red Brown started it with a walk and Luis Martinez laid down a sacrifice that was mishandled and put runners on second and third. One out later, Daniel Simons walked to load the bases and with two outs, Heath Harris singled Brown home, though Martinez was cut down at the plate to retire the side. Jacob Cram got through a sloppy top of the second with an error, walk and hit batter loading the bases before he would get a swinging strike for the final out with no runs scored. Laine Daum then lead off the bottom of the second with a double down the leftfield line, but would be left stranded. Polk put runners on the corners in the third, but Cram got a glove on a shot up the middle, deflecting it just enough for Alex Gomez to snare it, step on second and throw to first for a double play. But after a scoreless bottom of the third, Polk tied it in the top of the fourth. Awalk and single through the left side were followed by a strike out when a sacrifice bunt attempt with two strikes was poked foul. But the following hitter successfully laid down a bunt, which was then thrown away, allowing the tying run to come around. Heartland left two more on base in the bottom of the fourth, which was when the rains came and delayed the proceedings. But when play did resume, Polk took over with three runs in the top of the fifth and five more in the sixth off a flurry of walks, three relievers and a bobbled attempt at a diving catch in the outfield. Team Heartland scratched for one in the bottom of the sixth on an RBI ground out from Kyle Thompson, but Polk got that back and added another in the top of the seventh for an 11-2 lead. Needing a huge, lastinning rally to get back into it, Heartland would load the bases with one out, but a ground-out RBI would be all they could muster and the final would stand at 11-3. Through a quirk in the bracket, with Chipley, Heartland and Polk all now standing with one loss each, Chipley got the bye into the title game, which meant a third match-up between Heartland and Polk. And so after waiting out the Majors semifinal game, Pre-Majors fall short at State See DIXIE, Page B3 Fishin Around Don Norton Summertime Bassin LP Aquatics douses Hurricanes See SWIM, Page B3 See BASS, Page B3 Courtesy photo Caroline Dion swimming the 25-yard butterfly.

C M Y K Creek where it enters Lake Istokpoga on the north end of the lake. Nick DeSanta, a Sebring resident and frequent angler on the lake told me the fishing has never been better. He said he recently caught his largest three fish stringerw eighing over 20 pounds. Other bass fishermen Ive spoken with agree, the fishing has been extremely good not only at the mouths of the incoming creeks but literally all over the lake. The same can be said for many of the area lakes. Reports from Lake Okeechobee indicate itsb een one of the best bass fishing seasons in years, and Lake Walk-in-Water is producing like it did back when the lake was filled with hydrilla. Summertime bassin. The Bass Professor Doug Hannon, who recently passed away, was quoted many times as saying the chances of catching a truly big bass were greatest in the summertime. Many fishermen challenged this concept since their feeling was bass should weigh the most during spawning season, due to the increase in their weight from carrying a bellyful of eggs, but Hannon said that was not true. In fact, he went on to say that bass feed the heaviest during the warmer water in summer, and as a result, actually grow longer and gain more weight during this three month period of time than the other nine months of the year combined. Lake Glenada continues to produce bass in the 6-8 pound range. Josey Ervin caught a nice 6.13 pounder a couple of days ago, and I managed to find a fat 5-pounder looking f or lunch in the reeds in front of the college. S maller bass in the 2-3 pound range have been harder to find this year. In the past you could always catch a half dozen in the reeds, but not this year. Most of the fish were catching are coming out of 8-10 feet of water. Lake Lotela and Lake Damon are producing good numbers of smaller bass, particularly on a spinnerbait. I use a HARTSpinnerbait that actually has two arms extending off the body with blades and it has proved to be deadly on both lakes. Last week we held the first Wednesday morning tournament on Lake Jackson. We didnt have very many boats show up, but the fishing was good and the boys were kind enough to let me and my partner, Burt Watkins of Avon Park win with three bass and a total weight of around 7 pounds. Our biggest, a nice threepounder caught near the bridge going into Little Lake Jackson liked the looks of my Baby Brush Hog and proved to be the biggest fisho f the day. Well be fishing again this w eek on Wednesday and Id like to take the opportunity again to invite you all out to join in the fun. We start at 7:30 a.m. and end at Noon. Entry fee is $20 per boat. You can fish alone or with a partner but its a three bass limit per boat and the fish must measure at least 14inches. My buddy, Bob Scranton of Avon Park had the opportunity to take his 14-year old grandson on his first saltwater trip last week. Ive wade-fished with Bob many times in Charlotte Harbor and weve always done very well. On our last trip a few months ago, we limited out on sea trout and redfish, and caught 5 snook that were just enormous. Bob caught the biggest, a monster measuring over 40 inches. Catching these fish on a 9f oot spinning rod while free lining a greenie is the ultimate battle. According to Bob, his g randson had a great time, out-fishing grandpa and proving hes got fishing in his genes. His first fish of the day w as a 21-inch trout, which he landed like a pro. He also caught a 15-inch founder, and when Bob hooked a big snook, he handed his grandson the ro d and he had the opportunity to land a whopping 35 incher. Not many 14-year olds can say they had a Back Country Grand Slam on their first saltwater trip! R EDS II, my new fishing tackle store is coming along.

They were playing aggressive and hard and trying to get us riled up, Simons would later say. e let them get into our heads. We beat ourselves. The highlight of the nightcap for Heartland was a grand-slam home run off the bat of Jacob Cram, but it would do little more than make the final margin a little closer. Our pitching just ran out and our defense wasn ot playing at itsbest, Cram said. .We started hitting, but if we had played like we can defen-s ively, we would have won. I ronically, it was the first two teams that H eartland beat in the opening rounds that wound up m eeting in the finale, with Polk taking the state title with a 5-4 win over Chipley.

By LAUREN WELBORN News-Sun correspondentIt was a long, hard-fought battle indeed but, alas, the Sebring Ozone team was eliminated from the Dixie Youth State Tournament Wednesday night. In earlier action, Sebring defeated Marianna 4-2 granting them a bye before beating Hardee 15-5 as they made their way through the bracket. Tuesday night they took on West Seminole, a team with a winning history. With this reputation, as well as the general ambiance of the State Tournament and adding the fact that both teams were undefeated at the time, the game was just that much more exciting. Sebring held the lead in the early innings, with a home run from Luis Perez and an RBI from Drew Smith to put Sebring up 2-0. Not long after, however, West Seminole tied and later overtook Sebrings advantage, sending them to the losers bracket and pinning them against Hardee once more. Having 10-run ruled Hardee before, in a wild turn of events it was Sebring who Sebring says good-bye to State See OZONE, Page B4

C M Y K three. But it looked as though the lead might dissipate in a hurry as Spring Hill loaded the bases with nobody out in the top of the fourth. Mason and the Heartland defense, however, were up to the task. Abouncer back to the mound was gloved by Masona nd thrown home for the force, and then a hard grounder to short went Crosson to Miller to Marley f or an inning-ending double play. B uoyed by the turn of e vents, the offense then added three more to the lead. Baber lead off the bottom of the fourth with a blast over the wall in left for a solo home run, and Gomez beat out an infield single to start to set the table. Marley followed with a sacrifice bunt that moved Gomez to second, and then Cunningham surprised the Spring Hill defense with a bunt along the third-base line for a hit that put runners on the corners. Miller then hit one that looked destined for center field, but a diving stab at short stopped it and turned it into a force at second, though Gomez was able to score. Looking to catch Miller and end the inning, the Spring Hill reliever saw Miller break a fraction too early and threw over to first. But with his head down and no hesitation, Miller raced headstrong into second and beat the throw from first. Which proved key as Abeln then followed with a single to bring Miller home and extend the lead to 6-0. Mason would run out of gas in the fifth, walking the lead-off hitter and surrendering a single to left, which brought Nate Green on in relief. But Green lost command of a curve and plunked his first batter to again load the bases with nobody out. This time, Spring Hill would capitalize, though minimally, with a sacrifice fly to left bringing in their first run of the game. But Green settled in and got a pop-out to first before striking out the next hitter to get out of it. Heartland would threaten to build the lead even bigger in each of their next two at bats, loading the bases with two outs in the fifth and putting two on with two outs in the sixth. Each time they would be held scoreless, but after Green did his job, Crosson came on in the sixth and held Spring Hill scoreless. By the time the top of the seventh came around, with just three outs needed to clinch the state title, thew indow of good weather to get this one in without delay was rapidly closing. Storm clouds were steadil y rolling in from the east and the first drops could be f elt as Crosson got an opening pop-out to second. A double into the rightcenter field gap followed, as t he rains started to fall more steadily. Crosson struck out the next batter but, perhaps with the increasingly wet ball becoming a factor, hit the next batter to put runners at first and second. As the intensity of the downpour increased, any more baserunners may have resulted in another delay. But the final out was soon made on a fly ball to center, giving the Dixie Majors State Championship to the Heartland All-Stars for thes econd year in a row. Last year, the team reached the Final Four of the World Series in Laurel, MS,b efore being edged by Paris, TX, 6-5. A nd while they will savor this second straight state t itle, the team wont have too long to celebrate as they a re off again to the Dixie Majors World Series in North Charleston, SC beginning Saturday, July 27, witha first-round match-up against Team Tennessee.

As many as 12 million to 18 million American adults have untreated sleep apnea,a nd the experts at the American Academy of Sleep M edicine are recommending the following steps for diag-n osis and treatment to significantly improve overall health, mood and productivity. Be aware of the risk factors Your risk of sleep apnea increases between middlea nd older age and with the amount of excess body weight you carry. In general, men have a greater likelihood of developing the disease. However, menopause is a risk factor for sleep apnea in women. Your risk is also higher if family members have been diagnosed with sleep apnea. Smoking is another significant risk factor, as well as being a detriment to your overall health. In addition to these more commonly known risk factors, many people dont realize that theyre in greater danger of developing sleep apnea if they already suffer from other common diseases. Seven in 10 Type 2 diabetics and 30 to 40 percent of adults with hypertension also have obstructive sleep apnea, says Dr. M. Safwan Badr, president of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. As a result, patients with these conditions should pay close attention for potential symptoms and then seek necessary t reatment. Watch for symptoms While the symptom most commonly associated with sleep apnea is snoring, not everyone who snores has the disease. However, when snoring is paired with chok-i ng, gasping or pauses in breathing during sleep, its a m ore likely indicator of sleep apnea. Sleep apnea symptoms also may appear during the daytime and include morningh eadaches, excessive sleepiness, trouble concentrating, memory or learning problems and general moodiness, irritability or depression. Sleep apnea can make you wake up in the morning feeling tired, even though you believe youve had a full night of sleep, says Badr. During the day, you may feel incredibly fatigued because youre actually waking up numerous times throughout the night and your body isnt getting the rest it needs. Get evaluated and treated If you suspect that you have the risk factors and symptoms of sleep apnea, its important that you are evaluated by a board-certified sleep medicine physician right away. Left untreated, sleep apnea may have a serious impact on your overall health, even increasing your risk of death. The sleep medicine physician will have the training and expertise to diagnose y our condition. He or she will conduct a thorough physical examination and s leep evaluation, asking questions like whether or not symptoms began when you gained weight or stopped exercising andw hether your partner or roommate has complained that you snore or make choking noises in your sleep. If the sleep physiciand etermines that you are at risk for obstructive sleep a pnea, then you will be scheduled for a sleep study.O bjective sleep testing will provide the data that will enable the sleep physician to make an accurate diagnosis. Once diagnosed, the reco mmended treatment for sleep apnea is continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy, which provides a steady stream of airt hrough a mask to gently keep your airway open throughout the night making it easier to breathe. In patients with moderate or severe sleep apnea, its estimated that CPAPtherapy reduces the 10-year risk of heart attack by 49 percent and stroke by 31 percent. reating sleep apnea provides all the benefits of improved sleep, including increased alertness during the day and improved memory and cognitive function, says Badr. Clinical evidence also shows that sleep apnea treatment lowers blood pressure decreasing your risk of cardiovascular disease and improves nighttime glucose levels and insulin sensitivity among Type 2 diabetics.

DearPharmacist: I met you at a book-signing and you said something that stuck. You told me that if Ih ave allergies, fatigue and multiple chemical sensitivities that I may have a methylation difficulty. You also told me not tot ake green coffee bean extract. Can you please tell me more? S.J., Vail, Colo. Answer: Methylation, its a big word that youp robably dont think applies to you, however, r ead on because knowing about methylation could improve or save your life. J ust look at the list of people who might have a m ethylation problem: Children with autism, anyone with a seizure disorder, neurological condition, Alzheimers disease, can-c er, severe Lyme disease, chronic infections, diab etes, allergies, fertility issues, miscarriages, cardiovascular disease, chron-i c fatigue, anxiety or any psychiatric illness. Thats t he short list. Oh, and if you are extremely sensitive to medicine, or to nitrous g as (given by the dentist you might have a methylation problem too. You see, as humans, we all have an enzymatic path-w ay going on in our body at all times called methylation. It has numerous life-sustaining functions. One of its primary purpos-e s is to convert folate from your meals into glut athione, a potent antioxidant that neutralizes poi-s ons. Aproblem anywhere along this metabolic pathway spells illness. My concern is that your symptoms are being heavily medicat-e d when its just a problem of methylation that can be addressed by a physician in-the-know. Methylation snps (pron ounced snips) are genetic problems but its not always a genetic problem. About 45 percent of people have a genetic issue, but blockages in this pathway can happen if you take certain medications or have certain nutrient deficiencies. Green coffee bean extract is incredibly high in catechols and those b lock methylation. Same deal with potatoes (regular or sweet), tea and coffee. T esting for methylation is often covered by insura nce. Because people with a methylation difficulty have trouble eliminatingp oisons, they build up in the body and thats what c auses all the health concerns. Opening up the road block helps clear your body of poisons and that should reduce symptoms. I f you cant methylate properly, you cannot prod uce CoQ10, carnitine, creatine or ATP(energy). You will also have nervep ain. Thats because the methylation process helps m ake the protective wrapping around your nerves. Some medications are what I call drug muggers of nutrients, which are needed for the methylation process. Among them are methotrexate, metformin,a ntacids, acid blockers, estrogen-containing drugs, and nitrous oxide. Drinking alcohol will pretty much shut down yourm ethylation. Im out of space here, so i f youd like more information about testing and sup-p ortive supplements, sign up for my free newsletter and Ill send you details. By the way, some doctors recommend high dosef olic acid and vitamin B12 but this is not always helpful, and can, in fact, be harmful. Details will be sent via my newsletter andi f youve signed up for it in the past, you dont need to do so again.

Associated PressLOS ANGELES A strange glow in space has provided fresh evidencet hat all the gold on Earth was forged from ancient collisions of dead stars, researchers reported Wednesday. A stronomers have long known that fusion reactions in the cores of stars create lighter elements such as carbon and oxygen, but such reactions cant pro-d uce heavier elements like gold. I nstead, it was long thought that gold was created in a type of stellare xplosion known as a supernova. But that doesnt f ully explain the amount of the precious metal in the solar system. About a decade ago, a team from Europe usings upercomputers suggested that gold, platinum and o ther heavy metals could be formed when two exotic stars neutron stars c rash and merge. Neutron stars are essentially stellar r elics collapsed cores of massive stars. Now telescopes have d etected such an explosion, and the observation bolsters the notion that gold in our j ewelry was made in such rare and violent collisions l ong before the birth of the solar system about 4 1/2 billion years ago. People walk around with a little tiny piece oft he universe, said lead researcher Edo Berger of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. NASAs Swift telescope last month observed a gamma-ray burst thatr esulted from the crash of dead stars. The burst, in a distant galaxy, was some 3.9 billion light-years away. Each light-year is about 6 trillion miles. T he burst lasted only a fraction of a second. Using ground telescopes and the Hubble Space Telescope, Bergers team noticed ano dd glow that lasted for days. Infrared light in the glow could be evidence that heavy elements like gold had spewed out of the cosmic crash, ther esearchers said. The new work, which w ill appear in a future issue of Astrophysical Journal Letters, suggests gold wasp roduced in a similar fashion in the Milky Way. It d oesnt delve into how Earth was sprinkled with riches, but previous studies have suggested that a meteor shower may have deliv-e red gold and other precious metals to the planet. I f the new studys interpretation is correct, this would be truly very excit-i ng news, said Stockholm University astrophysicist S tephan Rosswog, who led the earlier supercomputing effort but didnt have a rolei n the latest study. More observations of gamma-ray bursts are neede d, but its looking more likely that mergers of neut ron stars are a major cauldron in which elements like gold are forged, Rosswog said. Such flashes are thought t o occur in the Milky Way about once every 100,000 years. Berger said its unlikely another will happen in our galaxy in our lifetime. But satellites can often detect such eruptionsi n distant galaxies about once a month. Study: Dead stars colliding forged gold on Earth

C M Y K By JAKE COYLE A PEntertainment WriterAs sympathetic, methodical ghostbusters Lorraine and Ed Warren, VeraF armiga and Patrick Wilson make the old-fashioned haunted-house horror film The Conjuring something more than your averagef right fest. In 1971, they come to the Perronsswampy, mustyR hode Island farmhouse newly purchased from the bank to investigate thed emonic spirit that has begun terrorizing the couple a nd their five daughters a working class family who thought they had clawedt heir way into a rustic dream house. L orraine is clairvoyant, and Ed is a Vatican-sanctioned demonologist. Theyre best known as the married, devoutly Catholicp aranormal pros whose work with the Lutz family served a s the basis for Amityville Horror. The Conjuring, which boasts incredulouslyo f being their most fearsome, previously unknown c ase, is built very in the s-style mold of Amityville and, if one is k ind, The Exorcist. The film opens with a majestic, foreboding title card that announces its aspirations to such a lineage. D oes it live up to that? More than most horror films, certainly. But as effectively crafted as The Conjuring is, its lackingt he raw, haunting power of the models it falls shy of. The Exorcist is a high standard, though; TheC onjuring is an unusually sturdy piece of hauntedhouse genre filmmaking. The director is James Wan, whos best known aso ne of the founding practitioners of that odious type of horror film called torture porn (Saw Conjuring, he goes classi-c al. Though it comes across as a self-conscious stab at more traditional, floorboardcreaking horror, Wan has succeeded in patiently build-i ng suspense (of which there is plenty) not out of bloodiness, but those old standbys of slamming doors and flashes in the mirror. R oger Perron (Ron Livingston) and his wife C arolyn (Lili Taylor) arent initially suspicious when t heir clocks all stop at 3:07 a.m., the family dog as is custom turns up dead and o ne of the girls starts sleepwalking. But the torment grows bruises appear on Carolyns arms, the children are visited at night theys eek out the Warrens, whom we first see lecturing on the science of the supernatural. Chad Hayes and Carey W. Hayesscreenplay smoothlym elds the story lines of both families. Particularly good is J ulie Berghoffs production design, a necessity for a filmt hat spends so much time in one setting. Cinema-tographer John R. Leonettis camera creeps slowly through the house. The Conjuring shows its flaws, though, in its occasional digital effects representing the demons. Such choices effectively break thec areful, naturalistic atmosphere Wan has created. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, July 19, 2013Page B9 Diversions/Puzzles S olution, B8 Courtesy Michael Tackett/MCT Vera Farmiga as Lorraine Warren in The Conjuring. Conjuring scares up old-school horror Movie Review The Conjuring Rating: R (sequences of disturbing violence and terror)R unning time: 112 minutes Review: (of 4 LOS ANGELES (AP In delivering a film about a garden snail that dreams of winning the Indy 500, its as if the makers of Turbo had been pressed to come up with the most extreme underdog tale they could think of. Or else animators really are running out of ideas for original new characters. An attractively designed but narratively challenged, one-note film, Turbo skews younger than the norm for big animated features these days and has limited appeal for little girls. The sooner you accept the dull, miserable nature of your existence, the happier youll be, worldly-wise snail Chet (Paul Giamatti younger brother Turbo (Ryan Reynolds) after yet another day scouring a garden tomato patch. Turbo spends all his downtime watching VHS tapes of professional car races, especially the many won by his hero, Guy Gagne (Bill Hader, amusingly assuming a French-Canadian accent). Of course, the message of the film, as with so many other kid-inspirational cartoons and other fantasies, is that no dream is too big, you can do anything if you set your mind to it, etc., etc. Unfortunately, the real embedded lesson of Turbo is that, if youre too small or weak or otherwise incapable of greatness, you have a shot to win if youre juiced. Which is what happens late one night when Turbo, coming upon a Fast & Furiousstyle drag race in the dry LA River bed, gets sucked into an engine. Instead of being toasted, however, the little guy becomes infused with nitrous oxide, enabling him to zoom along the ground seemingly as fast as Superman shoots through the skies. Ahhh, the wonders of chemicals and strength enhancers. Barry Bonds and Mark McGwire would approve. Rated PG by the Motion Picture Association of America for some mild action and thematic elements. Running time: 95 minutes. urbo attractive, but runs out of gas D ear Abby: I have been living withm y girlfriend, Robin, for four years. S he has children from a previous marriage, and their fatheri s fairly active in their lives. I jumped in and have taken the kids toa ctivities, helped with homework and I pay the m ajority of the bills. I dearly love the children. My problem is I no l onger love their mother. Robin and I are like roomm ates who share a bed. There is no passion, no joy together and no partnership. I spend my time with the kids or alone. Shesw ith them at different activities or busy on her c omputer. When I suggest ways we could bond together, she says, Imt oo tired, or I dont want to do that, or This is the w ay it is! I have stayed this long only for the kids, but Im u nhappy to the point of aching. I feel guilty about leaving and the strain it will put on the kids. Is there a way to leave a situ-a tion like this? Am I a bad man for wanting out and possibly leaving the children to a tougher life? Unhappy in South C arolina DearUnhappy: B ecause the woman youre living with shows no inter-e st in improving the quality of the relationship, wanting to leave does not make you a bad person. You will have to acceptt hat because the children depend upon you for certain things they will be affected by your departure. It's too bad you didnt con-s ider that before moving in with someone who had a family. Try to make the breakup as civil as possible. Before you go, talk to each of the children individually. Make it clear that they are not the reason the relationship is ending and that you will always care about them. That way, they wont think they did something bad and blame themselves. DearAbby: How do I break up with friends who I love but have nothing in common with anymore? Im married with a child, but as a new business owner, I dont have time to meet their needs. How do you tell people in a loving way that you have appreciated their friendship in the past, but its over? We have grown apart. Dont Have the Time DearDont: Is it possible that your feelings are temporary, and that you are simply overwhelmed by the demands of your new business? If so, Id hate to see you end friendships with people you love. Relationships dont always remain at the same level or have the same intensity. Rather than cut the people off entirely, explain that you cant be as available because you have a new business and dont have the time. It would be kinder. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING It appears that the groves in Highlands County have responded well to the precipitation that has occurred as of late, so says Highlands County Citrus Growers A ssociation President Jim Snively in a recent report. There is a decent amount of flush and the fruit is starting to size up to where you can get some i dea of what kind of crop may be out there for next years harvest, he said. So far things look promising. However, said Snively, the new growth spurred by the rainfall has demonstrated stress on trees infected with the citrus greening disease. He said it makes for a devastating effect. The full effect of tree decline and major fruit drop as seen last season wont become clearer until the trees get closer to the early/mid harvest. That wont be until later this summer or in early fall. There had been the expectation that local crops would be down considerably locally and that the trees would be showing the decline and small fruit which are indicative of greening, Snively did not see as much of those issues as hed expected during a recent trip to survey trees in Highlands and southern Polk counties.. There were some groves where this was prevalent, but it was a minority to the healthy groves with what looked to be a decent crop for next season, he said. This trend continued as we worked our way down through the Avon Park area. As Snively entered into Sebring, the conditions seemed to change. The trees looked a bit better than they had in the spring but seemed to be less vivacious. The crop definitely seems to be lighter in these areas, he reported Why there is a difference in these geographic locations when both areas were experiencing the same type of tree decline and fruit drop in the fall, winter, and spring remains an open question inasmuch as it seems both areas had received comparable rainfall over the past 45 to 60 days. There are many, many, questions to be answered, he said. Snively said he believes the industry will find the answers with continued research and hard work from the Citrus Research and Development Foundation and other such entities.

The Florida attorney began by stating that Trayvon Martins death was a t ragedy, and that George Zimmerman didnt have to shoot him. That said, Tannebaum emphasized that he wasnt there. You werent there either, Tannebaum wrote. You dont know w hat happened, exactly. As much as you want to believe you were there and k now what happened, exactly, you werent, and you dont. Not knowing exactly what happened r equires a not guilty verdict, no matter how angry or outraged you are. T annebaum, who watched the trial and knows lawyers on both sides, wrote that the jury reached its verdict because of the facts and Florida law. The jurors who heard everything; we didnt issued a reasonable verdict on the issue they had to decide: the criminal charge against Zimmerman. Tannebaum argued the state didnt have a great case, with no witnesses and a confusing tape recording. George Zimmerman is not guilty because the law says hes not guilty, the attorney wrote. You dont think its right that he killed Trayvon Martin, but thats not what the law says in Florida where we like guns more than we like people. You have a problem with that, do something to change the law other than complain on social media. I know, youre busy, you wont. Thats for others to do. In closing, Tannebaum criticized broadcast news coverage and suggested better vetting of TVpundits. Also, he urged the uninformed to quit criticizing the verdict and asked to put an end to misguided cries for an appeal. We believe the verdict does not mean an endorsement of Zimmerman as a good guy, Martin as a bad guy deserving death, or many other noncriminal concerns that have come out in this case. Racism still exists in our country. T eenagers say and do stupid things and sometimes criminal things. Adults sometimes say and do stupid things, too. But, Zimmerman did not murder Martin, so says the jury. An editorial from the Enid (Okla.) News & Eagle. Verdict reached due to facts, law In an enlightening post on his Criminal Defense blog, veteran criminal defense lawyer Brian Tannebaum cut to the chase about The Embarrassment Of The George Zimmerman Verdict. Saturdays verdict in the George Zimmerman trial has sparked national outrage, and rightfully so. And yet, with much of the focus on race, there is an accomplice to Trayvon Martins death that has, to a surprising degree, escaped scrutiny and a seat in the dockguns, and our lenient, permissive approach to them. The fact that its a repeat offender makes matters even worse. Although it wasnt technically utilized by Zimmermans defense at the trial (they never filed the appropriate motion) Floridas stand your ground law, which abrogates the traditional common-law rule that required individuals to attempt to retreat before using lethal force in self-defense, played a critical role in both the tragic events of Feb. 26, 2012, and in the legal case that followed. The law is just one example of a successful national campaign to expand the rights of gun owners at the state levelan effort that has also involved statutes extending the range of locations where weapons can be permissibly carried, including schools, daycares, workplaces, bars, and athletic events. Indeed, several states, including Arkansas and South Carolina, now even permit gun owners to profane places of worship with their weapons. Some would take matters even further. Last January, a lawmaker in Colorado introduced a bill that would have prohibited businesses open to the public from banning guns, unless they themselves provided armed security. Another measure, put forward in February in Missouri, tried to make it a felony for legislators there to introduce a piece of legislation that further restricts the right of an individual to bear arms, as set forth under the second amendment of the Constitution of the United States, presumably as interpreted by the National Rifle Association. Supporters of legislation expanding gun rights typically deny that a link exists between our lax laws the public policy choices we have madeand the epidemic of gun violence plaguing our nation. These arguments are made against a moral horizon that assumes widespread private gun ownership is a positive good for society. Both are deadly wrong. Gun violence reaps a harvest of more than 30,000 souls, on average, every year in the United States. To put this number in perspective, thats nearly equal to the total number of American combat fatalities in the entire Korean War. And there is a link between gun control and gun violence as a recent study published online in JAMA Internal Medicine concluded, [a] higher number of firearm laws in a state are associated with a lower rate of firearm fatalities in the state, overall and for suicides and homicides individually. Its a truth too many of our state legislators are either ignorant of, or simply choose to ignore. Regardless, this much is clear lenient gun laws lead to more gun violence, and a higher body count. Overall, stand your ground laws, in common with the range of other state measures seeking to expand gun rights, demonstrate contempt for human life and fetishize vigilantism and private violence. Vigilantism, in turn, actually makes society less secure. This point is amply demonstrated by the Zimmerman case its a veritable study in the benefits of leaving public safety to the professionals. But the Zimmerman case isnt alone Floridas experience with its stand your ground statute provides many other examples. As the Tampa Bay Times has reported, the law has been used successfully by defendants in a number of cases involving shocking circumstances: One man killed two unarmed people and walked out of jail. Another shot a man as he lay on the ground. Others went free after shooting their victims in the back. In nearly a third of the cases the Times analyzed, defendants initiated the fight, shot an unarmed person or pursued their victim and still went free. More broadly, is there any doubt that Martin would still be alive if Zimmerman hadnt been armed on the night of the shooting? Or that the presence of a gun changed Zimmermans approach to their entire encounter, and the trajectories of both their lives? In the end, this case illustrates why more guns, carried by more people, in a wider range of places, that can be used under more circumstances, makes us all more insecure. If we want to prevent more tragic deaths like Trayvon Martins, then we need to turn some of our righteous anger against guns, and a system that places them all too easily into the hands of the George Zimmermans of the world. Would that wed convict them. Michael Stafford is a former Republican Party officer and the author of An Upward Calling. Email anupwardcalling@yahoo.com/. Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, not necessarily those of the News-Sun staff. Guns get off again Guest Column Michael Stafford The name is Monday. Agent Monday. I have an important job to do. Back in 2011 President Obama issued an executive order to root out security violators within the federal government people like Edward Snowden, our most recent leaker of government secrets. The president ordered federal employees to report suspicious activities among their co-workers any unusual behaviors, strange attitudes, financial troubles or unprecedented travel common to people who sell or leak secrets, the lousy rats. I am the lead agent in charge of investigating such people. My phone has been ringing off the hook. My first call took me to the Department of Health and Human Services. The people there have been interpreting Obamas massive 2,700 page health care law to write new regulations. It has ballooned to 20,000 pages of mandates and penalties that weigh 300 pounds and stand 7 feet tall. One of our employees read through every page and hes been acting odd ever since, a bureaucrat told me. He worried that the new rules will bankrupt the country. He leak this information to anyone? No, said the bureaucrat. When he tried to sneak the stack of regulations out the door, it fell on him, causing his unfortunate demise. Serves him right, I said, smiling. Just as I settled the ObamaCare case, my phone rang. An employee was acting out of line at the IRS. She has been coming in early and staying late, said the IRS bureaucrat. Weve never seen anything like it. Has she been targeting, harassing and auditing conservatives? I said. No. Does she spend money lavishly on expensive conferences and silly training videos? No, said the bureaucrat. Thats the problem. She refuses to do so. What a killjoy. Sounds like someone who is planning to sing. Unless someone makes it look like she was embezzling funds and her reputation is ruined? I like how you think, I said. Just then my phone rang again. We had a potential rat at the Environmental Protection Agency. Weve tried to keep it quiet, said the EPAbureaucrat, but were using every means possible to re-interpret existing laws to create new regulations. Let me get this right, I said. Since the president cant pass the restrictive environmental laws he wants, his EPAis just making up new rules? Thats right, said the bureaucrat. We issued a slew of new regulations to curb U.S. carbon dioxide emissions, which we believe contribute to global warming. Coal plants are shutting down left and right. So whats the problem? We have an employee who is criticizing our lack of openness, said the bureaucrat. He says in a constitutional republic, new laws cannot be arbitrarily created in the executive branch which is essentially what we are doing. He says we are being unconstitutional. Good God, I said. You have been infiltrated by a conservative. Hell surely contact the press and sing. We expect not, said the bureaucrat. Since he was a conservative, it wasnt too hard for a government psychiatrist to diagnose him as mentally unfit. We put him on forced disability. Nicely played, I said. Some argue that government leakers are not the real problem our country is facing. The real problem is that our government has gotten too big, powerful and intrusive. They argue that the recent scandals are not isolated incidents that the scandals are what big government looks like. Maybe so, but that is not my concern. My only concern is this: I am Agent Monday and I have an important job to do.

Senex, who believes that the virgin is his new maid, must b athe to prepare for her. He is ushered into Erronious house to bathe, and Philia is told to wait in Senexs house. While the courtesans are changing houses, the virgin is waiting, and Senex is bathing in the house of E rronius, Erronius returns from looking for his children stolen in infancy by pirates. Pseudolus convinces Erronius that his house is h aunted when Erronius hears Senex singing in the bath. Pseudolus convinces Erronius that the house will no longer be haunted if he runs around the seven hills of Rome seven times. The general arrives to claim his prize, but Pseudolus conceives a plan to deceive the general into t hinking his virgin is dead. The result is complete (and hilarious) chaos. Forum is directed by T ammy Pollard, who mentioned after watching the play ones cheeks may hurt from laughing and smiling so much.

HLT visits ancient Rome in latest play By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING After months of red tape and formal procedures, the city council members gave the go-ahead for the Golden Corral contract during Tuesday evenings council meeting. Following an appraisal that valued the piece of property located adjacent to the Sebring Fire Departments substation on U.S. 27 at $348,00, council members Andrew Fells, John Griffin and Bud Whitlock voted in favor of selling the land to Golden Corral. Council member Scott Stanley cast a dissenting vote and recommended that the city retain the property for possible future uses. Griffin stated that the property has been owned by the city for decades without being put to good use. After closing costs and broker commission, the total amount of the Golden Corral sale will be $368,800. Golden Corral has agreed to pay for the broker fees and commission. Larry Weiland, director for Golden Corral real estate in Florida, has been anxious to get the deal closed with council members and break ground on the development. W eiland stated that the Sebring Golden Corral will be one of the corporations new buildings and will be nothing like the previous Sebring location. This is going to be a $900,000 building. We will be spending $700,000 on equipment for this restaurant. Were probably going to hire between 60 to 100 people, said Weiland. Weiland expects to break ground in the fall and patrons could be enjoying buffet-style dining by early 2014. Golden Corral land sale approved Construction of new restaurant expected to begin in the fall MIAMI (AP) Trayvon Martins parents made appearances on network morning shows Thursday, saying they a re still shocked that jurors acquitted George Zimmerman in the 2012 shooti ng death of their 17-year-old son. On NBCs Today show, Sybrina Fulton questioned whether jurors looked at the shooting from her sons point of view. He was a teenager. He was scared. He did run, Fulton said, who added that she believes the justice system failed her son. We didnt get the verdict we wanted because we wanted him to be (held) accountable. Martins father, Tracy Martin, expressed disbelief in the verdict handed down Saturday by a six-woman jury following a three-week trial in central Florida. We felt in our hearts that we were going to get a conviction, Martin said. We felt that the killer of our unarmed child was going to be convicted of the crime he committed. On ABCs Good Morning America, Tracy Martin said he felt the jury did not get a chance to get to know the teen. They didnt know him as a human being, he said. Martins parents said they still believe Zimmerman, who identifies himself as Hispanic, racially profiled their son. Obviously, any time you have a person that makes an assumption that a person is up to no good, thats some kind of profiling, Martin said. Was he racially profiled? I think if Trayvon had been white, this never would have happened. Martins parents said they support the federal government looking into the case. The Justice Department announced Sunday it plans to review the case to determine whether federal prosecutors should file criminal civil rights charges against Zimmerman. Trayvon Martins parents shocked by verdict

City Manager Julian Deleon told the NewsSun this is not a boil water notice. Every month approximately 30 samples are taken from throughout the citys potable water system, he said. One sample of the 30 taken in June, tested positive for coliforms bacteria normally found inthe environment and used as an indicator of other, potentially harmful bacteria. The protocol, said Deleon is to re-test the water sample just downstream of where the positive sample was taken and again just upstream. Those (second) samples came back okay, Deleon said. Everything is good. Were attributing procedural error as the most probable reason for the bad reading, he added.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID The Lake Placid Aquatics hosted the final local swim meet for the summer on Saturday, July 13, at the Lake Placid High School pool. The three teams involved were the Highlands Hurricanes Swim Team (HHST), Lake Placid Aquatics (LPA) and the Hardee Swim Association (HSA). There were 94 swimmers (HHST32 swimmers, LPA 39 swimmers, HSA23 swimmers) competing in the swim meet, ranging in age from 5 to 20. The Lake Placid Aquatics girls team won the swim meet with a score of 585 with the Highlands Hurricanes Swim Team close behind at 578. The Lake Placid Aquatics boys team won their side of the swim meet with a score of 456 with the Highlands Hurricanes Swim Team a close second with 440. The Hurricanes had their fair share of winning events, with multiple swimmers getting at least one win on the day. Andrew Brown had a whopping four wins in the Boys Open division, while Griffin Chynoweth had three firsts and a second in the Boys 13-14. In the Girls Open division, Shannon Cummings had four wins, and Zach Geitner had three in the Boys 11-12. Robert Swaine and Peyton Ming also earned four first places for the Hurricanes, while Anna Summer became official a few weeks ago, and summertime bassinis here for the next few months. Hot, humid days, often becoming threatening with storm clouds by mid-afternoon, offer some of the years best fishing if you can stand the heat. Water temperatures are pretty much at or near the highest levels of the year and as a result, the bass are typically either in deep water or heavy vegetation. Both situations offer exciting opportunities to catch a wallhanger. With the heat of the day rapidly approaching 90 degrees by noon, summertime is the season to get up early and take advantage of the cooler temperatures the mornings offer. Typically theres also less chance of rain early, as most thunderstorms build during the day and occur anywhere from early to late afternoon. First light, usually around 6am this time of the year, provides the shallow water angler with many more choices than later in the day. With low light conditions, bass will move into the shallows to feed and a top water lures like a Zara Spook, Chug Bug or Devils Horse can provide some heart-stopping strikes. Spinnerbaits, buzz baits and frogs can also be good early morning choices, particularly if you are fishing around vegetation or docks. Slow-rolling the spinnerbaits or buzzing them on the surface work equally well. With all the rain weve had, look for moving water, typically coming into the lake from small feeder creeks. Bass will often stage at the mouth of these areas awaiting baitfish, worms, insects and whatever to be pushed along in the moving water. Agreat example of this is the mouth of Arbuckle By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK Better late than never, one might say. With more summer rains wreaking havoc on the Dixie M ajors and Pre-Majors State Tournament schedules, Team Heartland would have to wait nearly 24 hours for their 6-1, title-game win over Spring Hill and be crowned State Champions. Originally slated to take place at 7 p.m. Tuesday night, a soggy day saw games pushed back aplenty, with a Pre-Majors semifinal contest finally closing out nearly at midnight. Thus, the Majors semfinal match-up between Spring Hill and Hernando got underway at 9 a.m. Wednesday, with the PreMajors title game between East Polk and Chipley slated for 11:30 and the Majors C hampionship to follow at 2 p.m. Those first two games got in, with Spring Hill continui ng their offensive onslaught with an 11-3 win over H ernando to put them in the M ajors finale. After Hernando had held them scoreless in Saturdays opening contest, Spring Hill saw their bats awaken to the tune of 35 runs in their next three games, including a 121 win over Wahneta and a 12-2 win over Hendry. And while the Pre-Majors title game finished in a timely manner, with East Polk eking out a 5-4 win over Chipley, Wednesdays afternoon downpour pushed the Majors championship contest back nearly three hours, with the rains halting and the field made playable shortly after 5 p.m. And whether it was the delay that quieted the Spring Hill bats in the climactic game, or a combination of the Heartland pitching and defense, they would find runs hard to come by as the game got under way and progressed. Clayton Mason got the start and got through a dicey first inning. After a single to left, two deep fly balls were tracked down by Heartland outfielders, though a hit-by-pitch followed. But Mason got a grounder to short, where Lane Crosson fielded and flipped to Ricky Miller at second for the inning-ending fielders choice. The Heartland offense looked like it might have something going when Seth Abeln lead off the bottom of the first with a single back through the middle and was moved to second on a Josh Townsend sacrifice bunt. But Brandon Rheas liner to center was snared by the Spring Hill pitcher, who caught Abeln in no-mans land and tossed to second to double him off and end the inning. Mason then cruised through a perfect second, with a pop-out and groundout sandwiching a kneebuckling curve for a called third strike. Team Heartland then snuck their way onto the board when, with one out, Josh Baber drew a walk and gave way to pinch runner Colton Brock. Josh Gomez followed with a hit-by-pitch to put runners on first and second. T rey Marley smashed a hard liner to center, though it was caught and didnt allow the runners to move up. But they would during Kyle Cunninghams at bat, as two wild pitches moved them to second and third and then to a score and third for a 1-0 lead. Mason continued to cruise, retiring the side after a two-out walk in the top of the third, and his teammates would add to the lead in the bottom of the frame. With one out, Abeln dou bled on a line-drive to right and came in easily when Townsend rocketed one into the left-center field gap for an RBI triple. Rhea then lashed a frozen rope to center that was caught, but deep enough to allow Townsend to tag and come in for a 3-0 lead after SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Friday, July 19, 2013 DAN HOEHNE/News-Sun Luis Martinez would not be able to quite reach home on this play at the plate against East Polk Tuesday in Dixie Pre-Majors State Tournament action at Head Field.

After having stunned heated rival East Polk County in Saturdays opening round, Heartland enjoyed Sunday off and stopped Chipley by a 4-0 score Monday. East Polk, meanwhile, was bent on revenge and would shut Hernando out, 5-0, in their early Monday game to set up a Tuesday rematch with the host boys in red. Chippy from the start, Tuesdays contest saw a few instances of things getting a little overheated on the field, in the stands and during a three-hour rain delay. But it looked like Heartland again had Polks number early on, taking a 10 lead in the bottom of the first. Alfred Red Brown started it with a walk and Luis Martinez laid down a sacrifice that was mishandled and put runners on second and third. One out later, Daniel Simons walked to load the bases and with two outs, Heath Harris singled Brown home, though Martinez was cut down at the plate to retire the side. Jacob Cram got through a sloppy top of the second with an error, walk and hit batter loading the bases before he would get a swinging strike for the final out with no runs scored. Laine Daum then lead off the bottom of the second with a double down the leftfield line, but would be left stranded. Polk put runners on the corners in the third, but Cram got a glove on a shot up the middle, deflecting it just enough for Alex Gomez to snare it, step on second and throw to first for a double play. But after a scoreless bottom of the third, Polk tied it in the top of the fourth. Awalk and single through the left side were followed by a strike out when a sacrifice bunt attempt with two strikes was poked foul. But the following hitter successfully laid down a bunt, which was then thrown away, allowing the tying run to come around. Heartland left two more on base in the bottom of the fourth, which was when the rains came and delayed the proceedings. But when play did resume, Polk took over with three runs in the top of the fifth and five more in the sixth off a flurry of walks, three relievers and a bobbled attempt at a diving catch in the outfield. Team Heartland scratched for one in the bottom of the sixth on an RBI ground out from Kyle Thompson, but Polk got that back and added another in the top of the seventh for an 11-2 lead. Needing a huge, lastinning rally to get back into it, Heartland would load the bases with one out, but a ground-out RBI would be all they could muster and the final would stand at 11-3. Through a quirk in the bracket, with Chipley, Heartland and Polk all now standing with one loss each, Chipley got the bye into the title game, which meant a third match-up between Heartland and Polk. And so after waiting out the Majors semifinal game, Pre-Majors fall short at State See DIXIE, Page B3 Fishin Around Don Norton Summertime Bassin LP Aquatics douses Hurricanes See SWIM, Page B3 See BASS, Page B3 Courtesy photo Caroline Dion swimming the 25-yard butterfly.

Mr. Greg Foster of GSF Enterprises has been gracious enough to incorporate his lot into our lease, on which we would like to construct a NBA-regulation size basketball court, STR8 Up president Sammy Telesco said.

C M Y K Creek where it enters Lake Istokpoga on the north end of the lake. Nick DeSanta, a Sebring resident and frequent angler on the lake told me the fishing has never been better. He said he recently caught his largest three fish stringer weighing over 20 pounds. Other bass fishermen Ive spoken with agree, the fishing has been extremely good not only at the mouths of the incoming creeks but literally all over the lake. The same can be said for many of the area lakes. Reports from Lake Okeechobee indicate its been one of the best bass fishing seasons in years, and Lake Walk-in-Water is producing like it did back when the lake was filled with hydrilla. Summertime bassin. The Bass Professor Doug Hannon, who recently passed away, was quoted many times as saying the chances of catching a truly big bass were greatest in the summertime. Many fishermen challenged this concept since their feeling was bass should weigh the most during spawning season, due to the increase in their weight from carrying a bellyful of eggs, but Hannon said that was not true. In fact, he went on to say that bass feed the heaviest during the warmer water in summer, and as a result, actually grow longer and gain more weight during this three month period of time than the other nine months of the year combined. Lake Glenada continues to produce bass in the 6-8 pound range. Josey Ervin caught a nice 6.13 pounder a couple of days ago, and I managed to find a fat 5-pounder looking for lunch in the reeds in front of the college. Smaller bass in the 2-3 pound range have been harder to find this year. In the past you could always catch a half dozen in the reeds, but not this year. Most of the fish were catching are coming out of 8-10 feet of water. Lake Lotela and Lake Damon are producing good numbers of smaller bass, particularly on a spinnerbait. I use a HARTSpinnerbait that actually has two arms extending off the body with blades and it has proved to be deadly on both lakes. Last week we held the first Wednesday morning tournament on Lake Jackson. We didnt have very many boats show up, but the fishing was good and the boys were kind enough to let me and my partner, Burt Watkins of Avon Park win with three bass and a total weight of around 7 pounds. Our biggest, a nice threepounder caught near the bridge going into Little Lake Jackson liked the looks of my Baby Brush Hog and proved to be the biggest fish of the day. Well be fishing again this week on Wednesday and Id like to take the opportunity again to invite you all out to join in the fun. We start at 7:30 a.m. and end at Noon. Entry fee is $20 per boat. You can fish alone or with a partner but its a three bass limit per boat and the fish must measure at least 14inches. My buddy, Bob Scranton of Avon Park had the opportunity to take his 14-year old grandson on his first saltwater trip last week. Ive wade-fished with Bob many times in Charlotte Harbor and weve always done very well. On our last trip a few months ago, we limited out on sea trout and redfish, and caught 5 snook that were just enormous. Bob caught the biggest, a monster measuring over 40 inches. Catching these fish on a 9foot spinning rod while free lining a greenie is the ultimate battle. According to Bob, his grandson had a great time, out-fishing grandpa and proving hes got fishing in his genes. His first fish of the day was a 21-inch trout, which he landed like a pro. He also caught a 15-inch founder, and when Bob hooked a big snook, he handed his grandson the ro d and he had the opportunity to land a whopping 35 incher. Not many 14-year olds can say they had a Back Country Grand Slam on their first saltwater trip! REDS II, my new fishing tackle store is coming along. Im still waiting on stock that should begin arriving soon. I expect to be opening around the beginning of August. Ill let you know through this column when were open for business. Don Norton is a professional tournament bass fisherman, bass fishing guide, and custom rod builder. He lives in the Golf Hammock area of Sebring with his wife Lexie, and is the owner of a custom rod building company appropriately named The American Fisherman. He will soon be opening REDS II, a fishing tackle store in Sebring, FL. You can reach him at 863-2734998 or by email at donorton13@gmail.com.

They were playing aggressive and hard and trying to get us riled up, Simons would later say. We let them get into our heads. We beat ourselves. The highlight of the nightcap for Heartland was a grand-slam home run off the bat of Jacob Cram, but it would do little more than make the final margin a little closer. Our pitching just ran out and our defense was not playing at itsbest, Cram said. .We started hitting, but if we had played like we can defensively, we would have won. Ironically, it was the first two teams that Heartland beat in the opening rounds that wound up meeting in the finale, with Polk taking the state title with a 5-4 win over Chipley. Continued from B1 Dixie title run ends for Heartland Sapp and Madeline Swaine had three each, Koy M cGrath, Leila Henry, Megan Glisson and Clara Simpson all had two wins apiece. Noah Roth, Hannah Farr and Gabriella Dion each got wins for Highlands. The Hurricanes also took six relay wins on the day.

Lake Placid Aquatics, obviously, had plenty of winning swims as well. Catherine Dye had the big day with four wins, with Ryan Hutzenlaub and Logan Million each winning three events. Braden Million, Brice Creel and Jackie Edgemon won two swim apiece, and James Baker, Megan Cooper, Chelsea LeBlanc, Chloe LeBlanc, Mason Million and Abigail Shoffner each came away with a win.

By LAUREN WELBORN News-Sun correspondentIt was a long, hard-fought battle indeed but, alas, the Sebring Ozone team was eliminated from the Dixie Youth State Tournament Wednesday night. In earlier action, Sebring defeated Marianna 4-2 granting them a bye before beating Hardee 15-5 as they made their way through the bracket. Tuesday night they took on West Seminole, a team with a winning history. With this reputation, as well as the general ambiance of the State Tournament and adding the fact that both teams were undefeated at the time, the game was just that much more exciting. Sebring held the lead in the early innings, with a home run from Luis Perez and an RBI from Drew Smith to put Sebring up 2-0. Not long after, however, West Seminole tied and later overtook Sebrings advantage, sending them to the losers bracket and pinning them against Hardee once more. Having 10-run ruled Hardee before, in a wild turn of events it was Sebring who Sebring says good-bye to State See OZONE, Page B4

C M Y K three. But it looked as though the lead might dissipate in a hurry as Spring Hill loaded the bases with nobody out in the top of the fourth. Mason and the Heartland defense, however, were up to the task. Abouncer back to the mound was gloved by Mason a nd thrown home for the force, and then a hard grounder to short went Crosson to Miller to Marley f or an inning-ending double play. Buoyed by the turn of e vents, the offense then added three more to the lead. Baber lead off the bottom of the fourth with a blast over the wall in left for a solo home run, and Gomez beat out an infield single to start to set the table. Marley followed with a sacrifice bunt that moved Gomez to second, and then Cunningham surprised the Spring Hill defense with a bunt along the third-base line for a hit that put runners on the corners. Miller then hit one that looked destined for center field, but a diving stab at short stopped it and turned it into a force at second, though Gomez was able to score. Looking to catch Miller and end the inning, the Spring Hill reliever saw Miller break a fraction too early and threw over to first. But with his head down and no hesitation, Miller raced headstrong into second and beat the throw from first. Which proved key as Abeln then followed with a single to bring Miller home and extend the lead to 6-0. Mason would run out of gas in the fifth, walking the lead-off hitter and surrendering a single to left, which brought Nate Green on in relief. But Green lost command of a curve and plunked his first batter to again load the bases with nobody out. This time, Spring Hill would capitalize, though minimally, with a sacrifice fly to left bringing in their first run of the game. But Green settled in and got a pop-out to first before striking out the next hitter to get out of it. Heartland would threaten to build the lead even bigger in each of their next two at bats, loading the bases with two outs in the fifth and putting two on with two outs in the sixth. Each time they would be held scoreless, but after Green did his job, Crosson came on in the sixth and held Spring Hill scoreless. By the time the top of the seventh came around, with just three outs needed to clinch the state title, the window of good weather to get this one in without delay was rapidly closing. Storm clouds were steadily rolling in from the east and the first drops could be felt as Crosson got an opening pop-out to second. A double into the rightcenter field gap followed, as the rains started to fall more steadily. Crosson struck out the next batter but, perhaps with the increasingly wet ball becoming a factor, hit the next batter to put runners at first and second. As the intensity of the downpour increased, any more baserunners may have resulted in another delay. But the final out was soon made on a fly ball to center, giving the Dixie Majors State Championship to the Heartland All-Stars for the second year in a row. Last year, the team reached the Final Four of the World Series in Laurel, MS, before being edged by Paris, TX, 6-5. And while they will savor this second straight state title, the team wont have too long to celebrate as they are off again to the Dixie Majors World Series in North Charleston, SC beginning Saturday, July 27, with a first-round match-up against Team Tennessee.

As many as 12 million to 18 million American adults have untreated sleep apnea, and the experts at the American Academy of Sleep Medicine are recommending the following steps for diagnosis and treatment to significantly improve overall health, mood and productivity. Be aware of the risk factors Your risk of sleep apnea increases between middle and older age and with the amount of excess body weight you carry. In general, men have a greater likelihood of developing the disease. However, menopause is a risk factor for sleep apnea in women. Your risk is also higher if family members have been diagnosed with sleep apnea. Smoking is another significant risk factor, as well as being a detriment to your overall health. In addition to these more commonly known risk factors, many people dont realize that theyre in greater danger of developing sleep apnea if they already suffer from other common diseases. Seven in 10 Type 2 diabetics and 30 to 40 percent of adults with hypertension also have obstructive sleep apnea, says Dr. M. Safwan Badr, president of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine. As a result, patients with these conditions should pay close attention for potential symptoms and then seek necessary treatment. Watch for symptoms While the symptom most commonly associated with sleep apnea is snoring, not everyone who snores has the disease. However, when snoring is paired with choking, gasping or pauses in breathing during sleep, its a more likely indicator of sleep apnea. Sleep apnea symptoms also may appear during the daytime and include morning headaches, excessive sleepiness, trouble concentrating, memory or learning problems and general moodiness, irritability or depression. Sleep apnea can make you wake up in the morning feeling tired, even though you believe youve had a full night of sleep, says Badr. During the day, you may feel incredibly fatigued because youre actually waking up numerous times throughout the night and your body isnt getting the rest it needs. Get evaluated and treated If you suspect that you have the risk factors and symptoms of sleep apnea, its important that you are evaluated by a board-certified sleep medicine physician right away. Left untreated, sleep apnea may have a serious impact on your overall health, even increasing your risk of death. The sleep medicine physician will have the training and expertise to diagnose your condition. He or she will conduct a thorough physical examination and sleep evaluation, asking questions like whether or not symptoms began when you gained weight or stopped exercising and whether your partner or roommate has complained that you snore or make choking noises in your sleep. If the sleep physician determines that you are at risk for obstructive sleep apnea, then you will be scheduled for a sleep study. Objective sleep testing will provide the data that will enable the sleep physician to make an accurate diagnosis. Once diagnosed, the recommended treatment for sleep apnea is continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy, which provides a steady stream of air through a mask to gently keep your airway open throughout the night making it easier to breathe. In patients with moderate or severe sleep apnea, its estimated that CPAPtherapy reduces the 10-year risk of heart attack by 49 percent and stroke by 31 percent. Treating sleep apnea provides all the benefits of improved sleep, including increased alertness during the day and improved memory and cognitive function, says Badr. Clinical evidence also shows that sleep apnea treatment lowers blood pressure decreasing your risk of cardiovascular disease and improves nighttime glucose levels and insulin sensitivity among Type 2 diabetics.

DearPharmacist: I met you at a book-signing and you said something that stuck. You told me that if I have allergies, fatigue and multiple chemical sensitivities that I may have a methylation difficulty. You also told me not to take green coffee bean extract. Can you please tell me more? S.J., Vail, Colo. Answer: Methylation, its a big word that you probably dont think applies to you, however, read on because knowing about methylation could improve or save your life. Just look at the list of people who might have a methylation problem: Children with autism, anyone with a seizure disorder, neurological condition, Alzheimers disease, cancer, severe Lyme disease, chronic infections, diabetes, allergies, fertility issues, miscarriages, cardiovascular disease, chronic fatigue, anxiety or any psychiatric illness. Thats the short list. Oh, and if you are extremely sensitive to medicine, or to nitrous gas (given by the dentist) you might have a methylation problem too. You see, as humans, we all have an enzymatic pathway going on in our body at all times called methylation. It has numerous life-sustaining functions. One of its primary purposesis to convert folate from your meals into glutathione, a potent antioxidant that neutralizes poisons. Aproblem anywhere along this metabolic pathway spells illness. My concern is that your symptoms are being heavily medicatedwhen its just a problem of methylation that can be addressed by a physician in-the-know. Methylation snps (pronounced snips) are genetic problems but its not always a genetic problem. About 45 percent of people have a genetic issue, but blockages in this pathway can happen if you take certain medications or have certain nutrient deficiencies. Green coffee bean extract is incredibly high in catechols and those block methylation. Same deal with potatoes (regular or sweet), tea and coffee. Testing for methylation is often covered by insurance. Because people with amethylation difficulty have trouble eliminating poisons, they build up in the body and thats what causes all the health concerns. Opening up the road block helps clear your body of poisons and that should reduce symptoms. Ifyou cant methylate properly, you cannot produce CoQ10, carnitine, creatine or ATP(energy). You will also have nerve pain. Thats because the methylation process helps make the protective wrapping around your nerves. Some medications are what Icall drug muggers of nutrients, which are needed for the methylation process. Among them are methotrexate, metformin, antacids, acid blockers, estrogen-containing drugs, and nitrous oxide. Drinking alcohol will pretty much shut down your methylation. Im out of space here, so ifyoud like more information about testing and supportive supplements, sign up for my free newsletter and Ill send you details. By the way, some doctors recommend high dose folic acid and vitamin B12 but this is not always helpful, and can, in fact, be harmful. Details will be sent via my newsletter and ifyouve signed up for it in the past, you dont need to do so again.

Methylation problems lead to many diseases Dear Pharmacist Suzy Cohen Metro As many as 12 million people may suffer from sleep apnea. Sleep apnea symptoms also may appear during the daytime and include morning headaches, excessive sleepiness, trouble concentrating, memory or learning problems and general moodiness. Is your drowsiness a sign of danger?

C M Y K Ateacher was giving a l esson on the circulation of blood. Trying to clarify her point, she asked, Children, d oyou understand that if I stand on my head, the blood w ill run into it, and my face will turn red? Yes, Maam, the child ren said. With that response, the teacher quickly asked, Then why is it that while I am standing upright on my l egs the blood doesnt run into my feet? Alittle boy shouted, Cause your feet aint empty! In this modern age, we are constantly bombarded with new types of information. That new knowledge brings about even more new questions. The pursuit of those questions often r eveals new answers that better help us understand t he world around us. Each week with this article, I try to answer questions that have been posed to me concerning matters of b iblical significance. I do so to help others (and myself!) better understand God and His will for mankind. These questions are asked of me in person, by telephone, through the mail, and over email. Sometimes, the questions even come from my personal studies, as I attempt to search the scriptures for answers in my own life. With this weeks article, I want to invite and encourage each of you to send your Bible questions to the physical address or email address listed below. As always, any questions published in this article will be done so anonymously. And together, we will examine Gods word and attempt to find His answers for our lives. The apostle Peter wrote 1 Peter 3:15, But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear. (KJV) Let us each prepare by studying to give good answers to the questions that are posed to us.

Associated PressLOS ANGELES A strange glow in space has provided fresh evidence that all the gold on Earth was forged from ancient collisions of dead stars, researchers reported Wednesday. Astronomers have long known that fusion reactions in the cores of stars create lighter elements such as carbon and oxygen, but such reactions cant produce heavier elements like gold. Instead, it was long thought that gold was created in a type of stellar explosion known as a supernova. But that doesnt fully explain the amount of the precious metal in the solar system. About a decade ago, a team from Europe using supercomputers suggested that gold, platinum and other heavy metals could be formed when two exotic stars neutron stars crash and merge. Neutron stars are essentially stellar relics collapsed cores of massive stars. Now telescopes have detected such an explosion, and the observation bolsters the notion that gold in our jewelry was made in such rare and violent collisions long before the birth of the solar system about 4 1/2 billion years ago. People walk around with a little tiny piece of the universe, said lead researcher Edo Berger of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics. NASAs Swift telescope last month observed a gamma-ray burst that resulted from the crash of dead stars. The burst, in a distant galaxy, was some 3.9 billion light-years away. Each light-year is about 6 trillion miles. The burst lasted only a fraction of a second. Using ground telescopes and the Hubble Space Telescope, Bergers team noticed an odd glow that lasted for days. Infrared light in the glow could be evidence that heavy elements like gold had spewed out of the cosmic crash, the researchers said. The new work, which will appear in a future issue of Astrophysical Journal Letters, suggests gold was produced in a similar fashion in the Milky Way. It doesnt delve into how Earth was sprinkled with riches, but previous studies have suggested that a meteor shower may have delivered gold and other precious metals to the planet. If the new studys interpretation is correct, this would be truly very exciting news, said Stockholm University astrophysicist Stephan Rosswog, who led the earlier supercomputing effort but didnt have a role in the latest study. More observations of gamma-ray bursts are needed, but its looking more likely that mergers of neutron stars are a major cauldron in which elements like gold are forged, Rosswog said. Such flashes are thought to occur in the Milky Way about once every 100,000 years. Berger said its unlikely another will happen in our galaxy in our lifetime. But satellites can often detect such eruptions in distant galaxies about once a month. Study: Dead stars colliding forged gold on Earth

C M Y K By JAKE COYLE APEntertainment WriterAs sympathetic, methodical ghostbusters Lorraine and Ed Warren, Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson make the old-fashioned haunted-house horror film The Conjuring something more than your average fright fest. In 1971, they come to the Perronsswampy, musty Rhode Island farmhouse newly purchased from the bank to investigate the demonic spirit that has begun terrorizing the couple and their five daughters a working class family who thought they had clawed their way into a rustic dream house. Lorraine is clairvoyant, and Ed is a Vatican-sanctioned demonologist. Theyre best known as the married, devoutly Catholic paranormal pros whose work with the Lutz family served as the basis for Amityville Horror. The Conjuring, which boasts incredulously of being their most fearsome, previously unknown case, is built very in the s-style mold of Amityville and, if one is kind, The Exorcist. The film opens with a majestic, foreboding title card that announces its aspirations to such a lineage. Does it live up to that? More than most horror films, certainly. But as effectively crafted as The Conjuring is, its lacking the raw, haunting power of the models it falls shy of. The Exorcist is a high standard, though; The Conjuring is an unusually sturdy piece of hauntedhouse genre filmmaking. The director is James Wan, whos best known as one of the founding practitioners of that odious type of horror film called torture porn (Saw). In The Conjuring, he goes classical. Though it comes across as a self-conscious stab at more traditional, floorboardcreaking horror, Wan has succeeded in patiently building suspense (of which there is plenty) not out of bloodiness, but those old standbys of slamming doors and flashes in the mirror. Roger Perron (Ron Livingston) and his wife Carolyn (Lili Taylor) arent initially suspicious when their clocks all stop at 3:07 a.m., the family dog as is custom turns up dead and one of the girls starts sleepwalking. But the torment grows bruises appear on Carolyns arms, the children are visited at night they seek out the Warrens, whom we first see lecturing on the science of the supernatural. Chad Hayes and Carey W. Hayesscreenplay smoothly melds the story lines of both families. Particularly good is Julie Berghoffs production design, a necessity for a film that spends so much time in one setting. Cinema-tographer John R. Leonettis camera creeps slowly through the house. The Conjuring shows its flaws, though, in its occasional digital effects representing the demons. Such choices effectively break the careful, naturalistic atmosphere Wan has created. www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, July 19, 2013Page B9 Diversions/Puzzles Solution, B8 Courtesy Michael Tackett/MCT Vera Farmiga as Lorraine Warren in The Conjuring. Conjuring scares up old-school horror Movie Review The Conjuring Rating: R (sequences of disturbing violence and terror) Running time: 112 minutes Review: (of 4) LOS ANGELES (AP) In delivering a film about a garden snail that dreams of winning the Indy 500, its as if the makers of Turbo had been pressed to come up with the most extreme underdog tale they could think of. Or else animators really are running out of ideas for original new characters. An attractively designed but narratively challenged, one-note film, Turbo skews younger than the norm for big animated features these days and has limited appeal for little girls. The sooner you accept the dull, miserable nature of your existence, the happier youll be, worldly-wise snail Chet (Paul Giamatti) advises his younger brother Turbo (Ryan Reynolds) after yet another day scouring a garden tomato patch. Turbo spends all his downtime watching VHS tapes of professional car races, especially the many won by his hero, Guy Gagne (Bill Hader, amusingly assuming a French-Canadian accent). Of course, the message of the film, as with so many other kid-inspirational cartoons and other fantasies, is that no dream is too big, you can do anything if you set your mind to it, etc., etc. Unfortunately, the real embedded lesson of Turbo is that, if youre too small or weak or otherwise incapable of greatness, you have a shot to win if youre juiced. Which is what happens late one night when Turbo, coming upon a Fast & Furiousstyle drag race in the dry LA River bed, gets sucked into an engine. Instead of being toasted, however, the little guy becomes infused with nitrous oxide, enabling him to zoom along the ground seemingly as fast as Superman shoots through the skies. Ahhh, the wonders of chemicals and strength enhancers. Barry Bonds and Mark McGwire would approve. Rated PG by the Motion Picture Association of America for some mild action and thematic elements. Running time: 95 minutes. Turbo attractive, but runs out of gas Dear Abby: I have been living with my girlfriend, Robin, for four years. She has children from a previous marriage, and their father i s fairly active in their lives. I jumped in and have taken the kids to a ctivities, helped with homework and I pay the m ajority of the bills. I dearly love the children. My problem is I no l onger love their mother. Robin and I are like roomm ates who share a bed. There is no passion, no joy together and no partnership. I spend my time with the kids or alone. Shes w ith them at different activities or busy on her c omputer. When I suggest ways we could bond together, she says, Im t oo tired, or I dont want to do that, or This is the w ay it is! I have stayed this long only for the kids, but Im u nhappy to the point of aching. I feel guilty about leaving and the strain it will put on the kids. Is there a way to leave a situa tion like this? Am I a bad man for wanting out and possibly leaving the children to a tougher life? Unhappy in South Carolina DearUnhappy: B ecause the woman youre living with shows no intere st in improving the quality of the relationship, wanting to leave does not make you a bad person. You will have to accept t hat because the children depend upon you for certain things they will be affected by your departure. It's too bad you didnt cons ider that before moving in with someone who had a family. Try to make the breakup as civil as possible. Before you go, talk to each of the children individually. Make it clear that they are not the reason the relationship is ending and that you will always care about them. That way, they wont think they did something bad and blame themselves. DearAbby: How do I break up with friends who I love but have nothing in common with anymore? Im married with a child, but as a new business owner, I dont have time to meet their needs. How do you tell people in a loving way that you have appreciated their friendship in the past, but its over? We have grown apart. Dont Have the Time DearDont: Is it possible that your feelings are temporary, and that you are simply overwhelmed by the demands of your new business? If so, Id hate to see you end friendships with people you love. Relationships dont always remain at the same level or have the same intensity. Rather than cut the people off entirely, explain that you cant be as available because you have a new business and dont have the time. It would be kinder. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.
