Bill N elson, a Democrat. He r ecently told a Sarasota audie nce that there likely wont b e another government shutd own next year. But neither will there be a m ajor compromise between R epublicans and Democrats t o address the national debt, t he annual budget deficits a nd more, he said. Nelson told the Sarasota a udience not to expect a grand bargain. Instead, Nelson expects a s maller deal that will take t he rough edges off the next r ound of budget cuts schedu led. These are the cuts k nown as sequester. Nelsons remarks are disappointing, because he is one of 28 members of a select committee of House and Senate members who will work on budget compromises. Their deadline is midDecember. If all fails, another shutdown could commence Jan. 15. Nelsons remarks, reported by the Sarasota HeraldTribune, indicate the senator is chiefly concerned with further sequester cuts, which were devised in 2011 as a way to force compromise. The sequester grew out of the failure of a previous select committee after the last government standoff in 2011. ... The Budget Control Acts congressional panel failed to compromise, so the sequester began to take effect on March 1. Deeper cuts begin on Jan. 15, and Nelson says they will decimate NASAs space program. Thats a major concern for Volusia County and its neighbors. ... While cuts in social spending and the military should be made, they should be made prudently. So Nelson and others on the select committee need to buck up and shed the pessimism. The nation badly needs a grand bargain an intelligent way to cut the $17 trillion debt over time, without crippling the Pentagon, NASAor programs for vulnerable people. The debt is a serious issue, and Congress must end the excuses and stop keep kicking the can down the road. An editorial from the Daytona Beach News-Journal. Nation needs a grand bargain I ts a sad state of affairs when members of Congress realize the need for a grand bargain on the budget but cann ot work toward one. Northerners should pay environmental tax E ditor: I read in the Oct. 25-26, 2013 issue o f the News-Sun that the Highlands C ounty Commissioners are looking for a dditional revenue sources. We locals are tapped out, so might I s uggest the northern visitors pay what I c all an environmental tax. N ortherners impose additional demands o n water (which Florida has very little o f), sewer, electricity, garbage, medi cal, etc. Sebring is not the big city w ith unlimited means of revenue. Since my income got cut by half, I c ant take any time off of work, much l ess take a vacation. The northerners can afford to take v acations lasting months at a time. A nd, no, I dont see the jobs they say t hey provide for us. In the winter, our roads get clogged u p by out of state drivers in the underp owered Asian cars when many of us a re on our way to work. I love Florida a nd its people. Florida is my home and i s not merely a playground to me. So I m concerned about our states fragile e nvironment and the pollution that too m any people can cause. So, its like the President says all the t ime, those who can afford to pay m ore taxes, should. Jerry Nargelovic Sebring Calling all Christians E ditor: Calling Christians of all faiths. I ask y ou to join me on bended knees to pray f or our great and wonderful country. I w ill list three prayers that I believe will m ake a tremendous difference in our c ountry. No. 1, pray for a constitutional a mendment for a balanced budget each y ear. The only reason to break it is an u nexpected war. No. 2, pray for a constitutional a mendment for term limits of both h ouses of Congress, with a long waiti ng period before they could run again for election, plus even a longer waiting period for them to run for the other house. Quite frankly, we need new blood in Congress. That would be good for Florida also. No. 3, pray for a constitutional amendment that staes: Life begins at conception. We have murdered, in the womb, 56 million unborn babies. Our President professes to be a Christian but gave several million of our tax dollars to Planned (KIll) Parenthood to kill our unborn children. Mr. President, I suggest you, all your friends, plus your family, read Exodus 21: 22-25. You will find it in the Old Testament Bible. I hope Christians of all faiths will also read Exodus 21: 21-25 and vote for any person who believes that killing an unborn baby is a crime. Charlie Marr Avon ParkObama is architect of our destructionEditor: Mr. Obama is the architect of our destruction, which I personally think is at hand. He is a man of resentment, anger and disdain for opinions other than his own. For a President he shows no love for this country, the people, its traditions or customs. Much of his time is spent creating dissension among the people. He is an expert at creating chaos by which he keeps the people separated. The country is on the edge of anarchy as people are becoming more aggresive towards each other. Just note the increase in crime among and committed by our young people. It almost seems like killing is becoming a way of life with the younger generation. The furor created by Obamacare' has shown the President to be an artful prevaricator, in street language a liar. This so called health plan is really a plan for redistributing the wealth and killing capitalism. It is a plan to bring this country down by destroying good jobs and impoverishing the middle class, as well as the population in general. The Democrats and Republicans had better realize what Obamacare really is. Or in a couple of years there will be no political parties. This once great country will never be the shining light of the impoverished and beaten down peoples of the world. The very sad thing is that Obamacare is presently winning. Dick Ford Sebring In the midst of utter most frustration, some people tend to discharge their inner feelings through drinking, while others prefer to be physical and go for a run or eat to their stomachs content. Regardless of the choice, these things are done to release hellish thoughts and soothe deeply imbedded pains. I, on the contrary, do none of those things; rather, I tend to resolve my grotesque idea on paper by writing There is a rhythm, a flow, a certain movement that circulates from my mind to my hand, leaving a symbol on a sheet. When my fingers grasp a pen or lightly tap a keyboard, there is a sigh of relief in every word, as if I were holding my breath the entire time. Sometimes I wonder if writing contains something addictive, like nicotine; once you start it seems as though you just cant stop. It creates a sort of euphoria where nothing matters but your paper and soul. Hours slip by like sand and I never know how much time I really spent on a piece when I am into the flow of things. Nevertheless, I would be lying to say every piece I write sounds like a sonnet from Shakespeare or for that matter anything near as amazing. Like a relationship, writing has its ups and downs; peaks and valleys. I am no stranger to what they call writers block, or rather what I call the epitome of frustration. But when submerged in deep emotion, I pick up my pen and words pour out from my mind to my paper. I often hear the phrase, Apicture is worth more than a thousand words. I dont at all object to that, because it all depends on the perception of the eyes the photo is bestowed upon. Yet I cannot help to feel as though words are what define an image. What makes this picture or image is in fact emotions; a feeling that can only be derived from explicit words. Michelangelos Creation of Mans message was Your mind is divinely inspired and the key to true understanding and creativity. His message could be displayed as an image, but eventually the interpretation simmers down to a sentence of his true intentions in creating that work. Though a picture could not live without word s, writing cannot liv e without a picture; for when we read our minds create images. As I analyze the play Antigone in English, I see the vision of Sophocles, and further understan d the characters. The supple truth remains with coexistence. Without one, we could no t have the other. While it is agreeable these are both fundamental arts, I still fe el partial to writing. Hence I ought to conclude writing is more than just ink on a page. For it i s a brilliant relief to my mind and soul; a form of self-expression, and yet, I could not simply say it is a 100 percent natural talent Rather, like everything else, it is practice and har d work, but most of all a fo stered skill, typically of inspiration. Every mornin g I read the newspaper, as old fashioned as that may sound for a 15-year-old. Its what I do. But when I read it, I get a feel for anothers perception and opinion, provoking my thought, expanding my horizons. When I pick up a novel and begin to devour the pages, youd ordinaril y find me pondering for an hour or so sitting there imagining if only someda y I can write a book like tha t. From the eloquence of many authors and teacher s, Ive learned to value the importance of literature, and the ultimate supremacies of my skills. There is more to a paper than its words, for every line ther e is a tone, or an underlying meaning to every expression. The great passion I hav e developed for writing is indeed an acquired taste, yet I urge all to see the vitality of it. It seems unfathomable to think wh at a simple interest has taugh t me. As people, we change and grow. Our lives press on with new ideas and interests. However, to know your fondness and reach for your aspirations while young is an advantage. Thus, I say it is a tru e blessing to know my forte and endeavors, for withou t them I would most certain ly not be where I am toda y. Gauri Persad is a student at Sebring High School.

Later in the session, F lorida Department of T ransportation Government A ffairs Officer Z achary Burch said t hat issue would be a ddressed in the 2 014-2015 fiscal y ear as part of the F DOTs five-year p lan, which currentl y is under review. The delegation also h eard from a number of g roups asking for funding, i ncluding the West Central F lorida Area Agency on A ging and the Spring Lake I mprovement District. Emotions ran high duri ng the middle of the meeti ng when law student R oxanne Judd came forw ard to suggest that legisl ators look to pass the A aron Doty Law, which w ould provide criminal p enalties to those who witn ess but do not report a c rime. Doty, 20, died after being beaten into unconsciousness and dragged outside at a party last year. Many people witnessed the crime, but nobody at the scene called 911. They have to pay somehow. I cant see them getting away with something like that and not doing something about it, said Judd. Under questioning by Grimsley, Judd and Dotys mother, Brenda Doty, outlined the circumstances that surrounded the request. They told Grimsley that under current Florida law, there is nothing that allows witnesses to be charged with anything unless they had hands-on involvement with the event. Grimsley responded that at this time she would rather see the trial play out before any action was taken in that direction. Sometimes it is best to wait until it works its way through the system, which gives us an opportunity to look back on it and see what needs to be done instead of stepping out too quickly, she said. It is hard to go back and make adjustments to a law once it is enacted. Grimsley said she would prefer direction from Sen. Galvano, who is a lawyer, and the states attorneys office before moving forward with the request.

Third graders from across the county spent a day this week learning about all things agriculture. News-Sun staffAVON PARK There will be a meeting for Faith on Fire Christian music and revival volunteers at 10 a.m. Saturday at Life & Faith Ministries, 831 Memoria l Drive in Sebring. The event is planned to bring nationally-reknown Christian musicians and speakers to central Florida from Nov. 8-11. Those who want to help with the Christian praise and worship event that is scheduled for next weekend are advised to be at the volunteer meeting or contact event organizer Candice Anderson at 863-4432344. Other details about the event, including ticket prices, are available at FaithOnFireInc.com. All proceeds will go to chirches and charities in and around Avon Park and Highlands County. Sebring Police Cmdr. Steve Carr confirmed Thursday afternoon that there was one fatality in the wreck, but said he couldnt confirm how the wreck occurred or very many other details other than it took place at or just before 12:57 p.m. and involved four cars. He also said police were turning back southbound traffic at Flare Road until officers finished the investigation, and hoped to have a full report on the wreck by today. Rick Woodham, Batteries Plus store manager in Sebring, was northbound at the time of the wreck. He didnt see it happen, but stopped in the turn lane and ran to the Focus to help, he said. The woman was unconscious. The gentleman was worse, Woodham said after a pause. It was very bloody. He estimated their ages at mid-50s. Woodham said hed seen bad wrecks from living in Tampa including a decapitated motorcyclist and said this one was bad. He said the driver of the Jaguar was trying to get out of the car, but he had him stay in the car. In addition to the Jaguar and Ford, the wreck also involved a red Chrysler Town & Country minivan and a black Nissan Altima, both of which sustained front-end damage. Woodham said there were two elderly women in the van, both of which were tended to by emergency personnel. The occupants of the Altima seemed fine, he said. Woodham said he was familiar with rendering aid from his mother being a certified nurse practitioner, but also said he didnt give first aid or attempt to do so. Emergency Medical Services and Sebring Fire and Rescue arrived almost immediately within 60 seconds or less, he said. The response time was quick, he said.

Michael Cutolo with Sebring Police Department marks off the part of Thursdays fatal wreck scene that contains a silver Ford Focus, which was flipped at least four feet into the air, according to witnesses.

Fatal crash closes southbound U.S. 27 Calling all Faith on Fire volunteers quit drinking orange soda now doesnt it? Olsen asked. The kids replied with a very loud yes. Over at the dairy station, Bishop Dairy owner Susie Bishop explained the process for getting milk from the dairy cows to the grocery store shelves to the students. The dairy station involved churning heavy cream into butter, milking artificial cows and visiting two-weekold calves as they grazed in a small pen at the station. Those calves will be dairy cows one day, Bishop said to the students. Ag-Venture continues to be an irreplaceable part of the Highlands County School District. Each year nearly 1,200 third graders get a hands-on experience of the life of agriculture that occurs in their very community. Volunteers make the event possible each year and leave a lasting impression on the young minds that gain so much from the academic experience.

The lawsuit states that P erry did not protest the s earch of the vehicles, but d id protest when she was t old her handbag must be s earched too. Perry alleges she was told b y Police Commander Jason L ister that as an e mployee of the city s he had no rights in t he matter. She told the N ews-Sun that, in f act, her handbag w as searched and e verything inside s crutinized. The lawsuit goes into cons iderable detail regarding the a lleged incident. The lawsuit alleged depriv ation of rights allowed u nder the constitution, and/or t he failure to protect Perry's r ights, and named City M anager Julian Deleon, S liva, Runner and Lister as d efendants. The court had dismissed claims against Sliva, Lister, Runner and Deleon on Jan. 22. On Sept. 3, the U.S. District Court in Fort Pierce ruled against Sally Perry in her lawsuit against the city, citing that the citys personnel policy allowed search of her handbag. The policy also stated that anything brought onto city property is subject to inspection, including personal equipment, clothing, property and belongings, including such items as car trunks and lunch bags. Deleon stated in an email that the city still stands behind the position that these cases have no merit, and we will continue to defend our position. As previously stated, when we prevail, we will seek to recuperate attorneys fees for the wasted tax dollars in defending these claims, Deleon said in his email. Continued from A1 Lawsuit against Avon Park city officials dismissed Pigman Deleon Associated PressBRISTOL(AP) APanhandle jury t ook roughly an hour on Thursday to d eclare suspended Liberty County S heriff Nick Finch not guilty of misc onduct charges stemming from his d ecision to intervene in a gun arrest. Finch, who fought back tears as he h ugged his wife and daughter following t he verdict, said right after the trial he c alled Gov. Rick Scott and asked him t o reinstate him to his job. This just proves Liberty County is a g ood place to live and raise your child ren, Finch said. There are good peop le here. Finch was charged in June with offic ial misconduct, a felony, as well as f alsifying public records following an i nvestigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. If found guilty, he could have been sentenced up to five years in prison. Scott suspended Finch following the arrest. The governors office did not immediately respond to questions about when Scott would return Finch to office. State Attorney Willie Meggs who said this is the first time he had prosecuted a sheriff during his nearly 30 years in office said he was disappointed with the outcome. We thought we established the case, the verdict should have been guilty on both counts, Meggs said. It wasnt, so we go on to the next case. We dont win all of our cases. Our job is try them. Prosecutors insisted that Finch had destroyed and altered official records related to the March arrest of Floyd Eugene Parrish, who was taken into custody following a traffic stop in an isolated rural area where he was discovered carrying a .25 caliber pistol in his pocket. Finch, who testified on his own behalf during the three-day trial, said he let go Parrish go because he believed that Second Amendment gun rights trumped state gun laws. Finch also insisted that it made little sense to charge Parrish since so many people in the county routinely carry guns in their cars and trucks. Assistant State Attorney Jack Campbell contended that Finch was lying about his reasons for letting Parrish go. Jury finds Panhandle sheriff not guilty of misconduct

We come there to camp and just visit. We had planned a trip to (Highlands) Hammock for this weekend but when I heard about the festival I was immediately on board, Kall said. Ive known about HALfor some time but I was not at all familiar with the event. I saw a link on the website and applied. So this (festival) is just a bonus for me. Being in Sebring is always a treat, Kall said. Stained glass pieces are Kalls specialty, along with fused and mosaics. Kall will be bringing just a few of the bigger stained glass pieces to the festival due to their fragile nature and the long drive to Sebring. Other items for sale by Kall will include mosaics, fused glass and casts. Artists Carol Bright, owner of Brightcreations of Tampa, will also be in attendance at the festival, though her ties with the Fine Arts and Crafts festival are much deeper than other out-oftowners. My mother is an artist, Margaret Conte. She use to do this art show, and stated it was a traditional and wellrun show that appreciates all forms of art. So I am very excited to take my work to this part of Florida, Bright said. Bright creates unique hand-made jewelry. Brass, copper, sterling silver, gold and gemstones are all used to create dazzling, timeless pieces for any budget, she said. I know it will be a fantastic experience, said Bright. Not only will the fine arts be on display throughout the event, performing arts will also be contributing in a big way to the festival. Highlands Little Theatre will offer a sneak preview of their upcoming production of Little Shop of Horrors while live music will be provided by the Jim David Band throughout the day.

A rrangements are entrusted t o Banks/Page-Theus F unerals and Cremations, W ildwood. r Community Briefs Sites and the state agreed it would be important for the jury to hear evidence of methamphetamine use throughout the week. Defense attorney Shirley Whitsitt asked for a continuation of the trial Tuesday, stating her client did not feel ready for trial since the limitations were loosened. Sites did not grant a continuation, but allowed Whitsitt the remainder of Tuesday and a fair amount of time Wednesday morning to speak with a toxicologist who could shed light on the affects of methamphetamine in the body and how it could be related to culpable negligence. Wednesday morning continued in the same fashion with Whitsitt trying to buy more time to speak with a toxicologist. Sites granted a recess during which both sides spoke to a University of South Florida toxicologist over a conference call. Whitsitt and prosecuting attorney Richard Castillo peppered the toxicologist with a number of questions regarding meth and its lingering affects in the body. According to the toxicologist, methamphetamine is excreted from the body within 24 hours or less, however the effects may linger for days. The toxicologist also added that if mixed with alcohol, a depressant, methamphetamine, a stimulant, would most certainly cause a severe crash, where the user sleeps for a long period of time. Sleep is most definitely an affect of a crash, sometimes for several hours, the toxicologist said via telephone. King, who was not present during the conference call, spoke to Whitsitt after the call and returned to the courtroom to enter an open plea of no contest, which Sites accepted. King faces up to 30 years with a minimum of 13 years in prison for felony aggravated manslaughter. Sites scheduled sentencing for Dec. 16 for 1:15 p.m. Castillo was somewhat satisfied with the outcome of the proceedings when he spoke to the News Sun Thursday morning. My goal was to get him a guilty conviction whether it was by trial, plea or jury, Castillo said. For selfish reasons I would have liked to go to trial because I had a really good case, but it really doesnt matter to me how the conviction came. He plead straight up to the judge and the advantage to that is the issues are no longer appealable. He cant come back later and appeal saying it was prejudice because the jury never heard any testimony. They never heard any of the issues. Continued from A1 Katara Simmons/News-Sun Christopher King speaks to his attorney, Shirley Witsett, Tuesday at the Highlands County Courthouse. King abruptly pleaded no contest to aggravated manslaughter and child neglect charges on Wednesday, stopping his trial before it really got started.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID As can o ften happen, the moment j ust got too big. Coming into W ednesdays Class 4A R egional playoff game a gainst visiting Berkeley P rep, Lake Placids Lady D ragons knew they had the t alent, knew the B uccaneers werent unbeata ble by any means and k new they could be the f irst team in school history t o get a win at this level. The problem with knowi ng so much, however, is t hat it can get one thinking t oo much, which is what h appened to the Dragons in a dominating, three-set, B erkeley sweep. They just wanted it so m uch and I think they put a l ot of pressure on thems elves, first year head c oach Charlotte Bauder said. They definitely were not playing like themselves. It was hard for me to watch because I know how they play when theyre on and they just were not on. They were for a bit, early in the opening set, as it was the Lady Bucs that seemed a little frazzled by the moment and watched Lake Placid jump out to a 7-1 lead. With the home crowd abuzz and the Lady Dragons jubilant, second year Berkeley coach John Coup called a time out to L ady Red Devils prove tough test for Jaguars By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING Sebring g irls soccer head coach R ichie Birdsall knows what h e is facing this year with h is Lady Streak squad. Returning just a few s tarters with significant v arsity starting experience w ill give any team a bit of a queasy feeling. Its going to be interesti ng and a work in p rogress, Birdsall said b efore Tuesday nights o pener with Lake Placid. Weve got Shannon ( Bloemsma) and Haylee ( Peters) back, but most of t he rest are going to be e xperiencing varsity soccer f or the first time. We have a lot of skill, just not the e xperience. Having Peters and B loemsma back, at center a nd goal keeper respectivel y, along with the strong d efense of Kelby Mahoney a nd Marianna Becker cert ainly proved key this n ight, however, as a relentl ess Blue Streak attack outl asted the Lady Dragons 21 This one looked like it m ight be lopsided, the o ther way around, when L ake Placid, a loaded s quad with big expectations for the year, scored within the first minute. Stephanie Bennett brought it in toward the goal from the right and sent one across toward the left corner where it was knocked home by Sonia Becerra for a quick 1-0 lead. But from there, it was all Sebring as the Streaks controlled the pace and kept up the attack. Their first scoring chance came at the 10:08 mark, when a cross and header went just wide, but barely three minutes later Peters broke away from the pack and went sprinting toward the goal where Dragon keeper Tamija Douglas came out to contest. Douglas went into a sliding dive to get a piece of Peters powerful kick, which just had enough on it to continue along and trickle into the net to even the score. At 17:32 Sebring had a chance on a direct kick, but the ball sailed just high and less than one minute later, Lacey Watson saw her shot from the right just a little bit off the mark. Then, in the waning minutes of the first half, a corner kick provided a couple of near misses before Douglas was able to corral the ball amid a sea of bodies in front of the net. Into the second half it went where both defenses kept things even. Though, according to the coaches, it was more the Sometimes I get so hung up on fishing artificial baits for bass I forget just how much fun it is to fish with live shiners. Theres something totally unique about watching your float and seeing it begin to slowly disappear. Fishing with live bait, specifically shiners, has been around forever. Before the very first artificial bait was created, men, women and children figured out that if they fished with small fish, they could catch big fish. And the larger the small fish, quite often, the fish theyd catch would be bigger as well. In our area of Florida, shiner fishing is by far one of the most productive of all methods to catch bass specifically large bass. Tackle shops often sell both domestic and wild shiners and both will catch fish, however, the wild golden shiner, typically 8-12 has proven to be the most successful. Some fishermen catch their own shiners, which is not that difficult, but most purchase their bait. Prices can vary greatly, with domestic shiners around $10 a dozen and wild shiners from $18 to $24 a dozen. Domestic shiners are generally available year-round, while wild shiners may only be available certain times a year. Fishing with shiners is a real art and not all bass fishing guides offer that service. Those that do will typically buy as many as 4-5 dozen on every trip. If you do the math, it doesnt take long to figure the additional cost to the guide trip. Equipment for shiner fish ing is relatively simple. Arelatively stout, mediu m heavy or heavy spinning or casting outfit, spooled with 15 to 20 lb test line, a shiner hook (often weedless) and a float. While some fishermen enjoy using small balloons as floats, the majority of fishermen choose a highly visible cork float, either weighted or not weighted. For many people, fishing with shiners is the only way to go. Although some fishermen troll with shiners, most anchor the boat near some type of vegetation and attempt to place the bait as close as possible to the edg e. The shiner, hooked through the back, lips or tail will attempt to reach the safety of the vegetation to hide, and of course, thats where the largemouth bass lay in waiting for a quick ambush. Floating mats of vegetation are especially good shiner fishing areas since Fishin with Shiners News-Sun Friday, November 1, 2013 BSection Sports Page B3 Fishin Around...

Janawicz will meet and greet the public at 3:30 p.m. before the event kicks off at 4:30 p.m. Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID Team USAbowler John Janawicz will make a special guest appearance on Nov. 9 at Cozs Sports Bar and Bowl in Lake Placid for the Bowling With The STARS fundraiser hosted by the Lake Placid Chamber of Commerce. The chamber is hosting a Cosmic 9 Pin No Tap Tournament to benefit Special STARS, a sports and recreational program for children and adults with physical and mental disabilities in Highlands County. Teams of four people will bowl two games with one athlete from Special STARS. Bowling action kicks off at 4:30 p.m. Registration starts at 3:30 p.m. The concept was introduced by the chamber so people in the community can get an opportunity to meet some very special athletes in our county. We hope to make this an annual event, said Mary Basso, event coordinator for the Lake Placid Chamber of Commerce and the publisher of the Coffee News in Highlands County. Several of these athletes are excellent bowlers. One Special STARS bowler has even bowled two perfect 300 games and takes the sport very serious. But, at the same time they love to have fun and thats what this event is all about. Janawicz will be at the bowling center at 3:30 p.m. to meet and greet the public prior to the event kicking off. He will sign autographs and have pictures taken for a donation to benefit Special STARS. He will also have an autographed Team USAshirt that he wore during the World Tour Bowling Association World Championship last August that will be given to a lucky winner in a drawing. Tickets will be sold at the event for $1 each or six tickets for $5. The public is invited to come meet Janawicz even if they are not in the bowling event. Janawicz won a Silver Medal in team competition and a Bronze Medal in doubles at the 2013 World Tenpin Bowling Association World Championship. He is a Gold Medal winner in the 2012 Pan American Bowling Confederation Championship. Janawicz is a five time Florida State Bowling Association State Tournament Titlist and was inducted in 2011 in the Florida State Bowling Hall of Fame. Janawicz, 41, has been bowling for 39 years. He resides in Winter Haven. I became interested in bowling from watching the Pro Bowlers Tour on Saturday afternoons when I was 2. I told Mom in as many words that I wanted t o do that, Janawicz said. Whatever your dreams are you need to pursue them all the way. To be the best at anything requires dedicatio n, hard work and preparation. Janawicz will roll out the first ball during the opening ceremony for the event. There will be door prizes, food, drinks and music. Cost is $25 per person or $100 for a four-person team. Early registration is encouraged since this event will sell out quick. Neon event shirts will be available for $8 each for early registrations only if ordered by Nov. 1. Limited shirts will be available at the event.

Ive taken many people o ut shiner fishing and not u nlike fishing with artificial b aits, the most common p roblem people have is the h ookset. Bass will often slowly s wim away with the bait in t heir mouth, often not even p ulling the float under the w ater, and if you attempt to s et the hook too quickly, y oull pull the shiner right o ut of their mouth. You need to give them t ime to move the bait a round their mouth before y ou set the hook. That may take a few seco nds or even longer. The easiest way to figure o ut if youre setting the h ook too quickly is if y oure missing the fish. On the other hand, if you b egin gut-hooking bass, y oure waiting too long. Once you make the decis ion to set the hook, reel in a ny slack line and point y our rod down at the water. When the line is taut, set t he hook by jerking the rod s traight up to high noon. Youll know in a matter o f seconds if youve h ooked the fish. If you have, hold on and t ry to keep the fish out of a ny vegetation and in open w ater. Shiner fishing is a great f amily event, since even s mall children who may l ack the ability to cast can j oin in. Its also a great deal m ore relaxing than casting a n artificial bait all day. Theres a couple reasons fishing with live bait is not allowed in bass tournaments. Most people believe its much easier to catch bass with shiners than it is to trick them with an artificial lure. But I suspect the real reason is that shiners often catch big bass!Wednesday, Oct. 16 TournamentLots of bass were caught and released last Wednesday at Lake Jacksons morning tournament. Nick DeSanta won the event with three fish weighing 9.10 lbs. Paul Tardiff came in second with three bass weighing 6.84 lbs and Kyle King finished third with three bass weighing 6.16 lbs.Friday, Oct. 18, TournamentThe Friday tournament on Lake Glenada was canceled. There will be no future morning tournaments on Friday.REDS King of the HillHopefully, well have eight teams signed up for the King of the Hill tournament to be held on Lake Jackson Saturday, Nov. 2. For those of you who follow basketball and football playoffs, weve put together a small bass tournament on Lake Jackson that will have only eight teams but each team will be paired against only one other team, and whoever wins will advance to the following week. Well start on Nov. 2 with eight teams, the winners only four teams, will fish on Nov. 9, and the two winning teams will fish against each other on Nov. 16 for the championship. Only eight teams will be accepted into the tournament, with an entry fee of $50 per boat (you only pay for the first tournament), and a payout of $500 $300 for 1st place, $100 for 2nd place and $100 (donated by REDS II) for big bass of the tournament Sign up and drawing of teams will take place on Thursday, Oct. 31. At the time of this column, we only have five teams signed up so I hope well get eight teams so we can try this unique concept. Ill report on the winners in next weeks column if the tournament goes forward. Don Norton is a professional tournament bass fisherman, bass fishing guide, and custom rod builder.

Continued from B1 offenses at this early stage of the season that were keeping the score as it was. I heard (Birdsall) say it too, that at times it just looked like a kickball game out there, Dragon head coach John Merlo said. There wasnt a lot of good passing, just a lot of long kicking back and forth. At 62:38, Douglas made a leaping snare of a Sarah Smith shot and had a bit of luck on her side as a Watson cross, two minutes later, ricocheted off two Lake Placid defenders and right into her arms. The tie was eventually broken by Peters at 66:52 when her direct kick found the back of the net to give Sebring the lead and eventual win. I certainly cant complain, Birdsall said. These girls came out and played with everything they had and really impressed me. We controlled the ball and outshot them by a lot. Their keeper had one heck of a game, otherwise we could have had four or five goals. Its the first game of the season and especially when these two teams face each other, it doesnt seem to matter if one team is a lot stronger than the other, the games are always close and hard fought. Though not quite as hard fought as Merlo would hav e liked. Lake Placid soccer is about tough, physical play and we didnt see much of that tonight, he said. Theyve been getting after it in practice, but didnt bring it out here tonight. Bu t it will come.

But to show that the actual talent level between the two districts was virtually even, Avon Park hung tough through all three sets, falling by scores of 25-19, 25-19 and 25-22. That shows that we definitely could have beaten them, Bauder said. Which makes it all the more frustrating. But overall, it has been a great season for us.

Continued from B1 Dan Hoehne/News-Sun Jacalyn Baldwin bashes one Berkeleys way in Class 4A Regional action Wednesday night. Dragons show up too late rf Shiners a big draw for big bass By DAN GELSTON Associated PressPHILADELPHIA(AP) Spencer Hawes scored 24 points and hit the winning basket late in the fourth quarter to lead the Philadelphia 76ers past the Miami Heat 114-110 on Wednesday night. The Sixers were strong from the opening tip, they made their first 11 shots and raced to a stunning 26-4 lead. The Heat, though, erased the deficit in the third quarter and appeared to take control behind LeBron James. Hawes hit a 3-pointer, then a driving layup for a 109-108 lead with 2:01 left. James blew two straight chances to put Miami up, losing the ball on a drive down the middle, then missed a 6-footer on the next possession. Shane Battier missed his seventh straight 3-point attempt, and the Sixers put the game away from the free-throw line. Michael Carter-Williams had 22 points, 12 assists and set an NBAfirst-game record with nine steals for the Sixers. Evan Turner scored 26. LeBron James had 25 points and 13 assists and Chris Bosh scored 22 for Miami. The Heat received their NBAchampionship rings on Tuesday night. Miami guard Dwyane Wade sat out to rest his sore knees. Coach Erik Spoelstra says he wanted to give Wade an extra day to recover with the Heat playing in consecutive nights. Wade scored 13 points for the Heat in their 107-95 win over Chicago on Tuesday. For most of the game, the Sixers played more like the team in the hunt for the championship, not rebuilding. Allen Iverson, Charles Barkley, Julius Erving and Moses Malone were among the former Sixers on hand for opening night. The Heat surely could have used Wade. Wade, though, had walked into locker room both knees wrapped in ice and an understanding it was too early in the season to push himself. He said it was just being smart. It was not pre-planned, it was something our trainers and coaches came to me with, Wade said. Its early in the season, its just a precaution. James said Wade could take all the time he needed. If he needs to take the second game of the season, the 30th game, 50th game, 80th game, thats the way it is, James said. After all, the Heat were a double-digit favorite to rout the Sixers, and expected to have little trouble against one of the worst teams in th e NBA. Not so fast. The Sixers dominated on ly hours after Iverson announced his retirement, ending a 14-year career. Carter-Williams had a steal and dunk to open the game, Turner dunked over James, and Hawes tossed in a layup for a stunning 19-0 run to open the game. James finally banked in a shot with 7:07 left in the first to end Miamis scoring drought. The Sixers still led 29-11 even with a lineup that included Tony Wroten, Lavoy Allen and Daniel Orton on the court. Who? Exactly. The Heat, though, became the Heat and used a 14-0 run in the second quarter to pull to 51-49 at halftime. Hawes, 76ers stun Heat

Whether you think O bamacare will deliver a ffordable healthcare or b ankrupt the country, it is c lear that it will enable more p eople access to doctors. U nfortunately, primary care d octors pediatricians, fami ly practice and internists a re in short supply. There are several reasons f or the shortage. One is d ecreasing reimbursement a nd rising costs for their o wn health insurance, office r ent, utilities and employee s alaries. There is also i ncreased regulation, such as t he unfunded mandate for e lectronic medical records. A nother is the higher educat ional debt for both college a nd medical school that y oung doctors are graduating w ith. Many new doctors give t his as a reason for picking s pecialties that pay more. N ewly graduating doctors a re, on average, a decade l ater than other professions a nd have less time to pay off t he debt and begin families. This is not a new problem. I n 1965, when Medicare and M edicaid expanded and m ore children and elderly s ought medical services, the s hortage began. This gave r ise to physician extenders t o try to fill the gap. There have been many l ocal attempts to fill in areas o f need in rural and other u nderserved areas such as t he Frontier Nurses (1925), t he training of army corpsm an to take care of prisoners ( 1930) and the Alaska health a ids (1940). In 1965, Loretta Ford, a n urse, and Henry Silver, a p hysician, started a formal program for nurse practioners at the University of Colorado. The original focus was health promotion, disease prevention and the health of children and families. In 1997, after intensive lobbying, they gained the right to be paid independently by Medicare and commercial insurers soon followed. Nurse Practitioners (NPs) have a four-year degree in nursing, and at least a masters degree in nursing. Eighty-eight percent are in primary care, but only 18 percent are in rural settings. APhysician Assistant program was started by Dr. Eugene Stead at Duke in 1965. He trained ex-Navy corpsmen using his experiences running Grady Memorial in Atlanta with only medical students because there were no residents during World War II. The first surgeons assistant program followed in 1967 at the University of Alabama. Today, physician assistants (PAs) work with a supervising physician who may be present only by phone. The states set the standards. Physician assistants no longer have to be ex-military corpsman. They must have at least two years of college. The average training program is 27 months. There are now 148 accredited programs and more than 92,000 PAs in practice. Pediatricians, Internists and Family Practitioners all complete four years of college, four years of medical school and at least three years of residency. (Family practice was standardized in 1966.) Some may do another year or two in subspecialties such as gerontology (over age 65) or adolescent medicine. There have been numerous scientific articles comparing the care received from a physician extender vs. the physician and even more editorial discussion about the equivalency of physician vs. NPand PAcare. The best is when they work as a team with the PA/NPdoing education, well care screening, history taking and other similar activities and the physician dealing with the more difficult tasks his/her education has trained them for.

Womans Club honors breast cancer survivors Will your health care provider be a doctor? Guest Column Are you embarrassed by your toenails? Do you hide your feet? Toenail fungus, known as onychomycosis, is a condition that affects nearly 25 million people in this country. Over time the toenail fungus causes the toenail to become hard, thick and yellow. The nail can eventually break away from the nail bed, making a gap. This lets dirt; bacteria, germs, and fungus live and grow under the toenail. Alot of people wonder how they got this disease. Since fungus thrives in dark, moist environments, it is everywhere including gym locker rooms, hotel rooms, and nail salons. Some people are more vulnerable. Women are more likely to have toenail fungus because they paint their toenails allowing for a dark area under the nail where fungus can breed. By going to a nail salon, they are exposed to fungus more often. Unfortunately it is contagious and spouses can infect each other. Many people desperately try to get rid of their ugly toenail fungus by using topical over-the-counter treatments like polishes, oils, or creams for months before they realize it does not work. Others try home remedies by applying Vicks Vapor Rub or soaking their feet in bleach. However, these are typically useless because they dont kill the toenail fungus completely. Oral prescription medications are available, but may cause liver damage in some patients. Toenail fungus laser trea tment is a great alternative for many patients who cant or don t want to take oral meds. Laser treatmen t for toenail fungus is a revolutionary breakthrough in treating nail fungus. This state-of-the-art technology targets and kil ls ugly toenail fungus by killing the fungus that liv es in and under the toenail. Prior to the toenail fungus laser treatment, the funga l toenails are trimmed and reduced in thickness. Atoenail fungus laser works by penetrating the toenail. It vaporizes fungus embedded in the nail bed and nail plate where toenail fungus exists. This efficiently kills the fungu s that lives in and under the toenail. The gentle laser light beam passes through the toenail without causing damage to the nail or the surrounding skin. The treatment is painless and requires no anesthesia. So, if youre tired of those ugly nails, now is the time to make the change. Dr. Olga Garcia Luepschen and the Gentle Foot Care Center are on U.S. 27 and can reached by calling 314-9255.

Footprints Dr. Olga GarciaLuepschen SAN FRANCISCO (AP) San Francisco is getting i nto the debate over regulati ng sugary drinks. San Francisco Supervisor S cott Weiner is set to introd uce a ballot measure that w ould levy a 2-cent-pero unce tax on all sugar-sweete ned beverages sold in the c ity. Acan of soda, for examp le, would cost 24 cents m ore. The money would be used t o fund health and nutrition p rograms for children. Similar soda tax measures f ueled by concerns the drinks a re contributing to obesity a nd diabetes have failed in t he neighboring city of R ichmond and the Los A ngeles County city of El M onte. But Weiner told the C hronicle that research s hows voters are willing to s upport the tax if the money is used to keep kids healthy. I try to cross my ts and dot my is, and I wouldnt pursue this if I didnt think it had a chance, he said. He plans to introduce the measure this week. It would require approval from a majority of supervisors to get on the November 2014 ballot. To pass, it would need the support of two-thirds of city voters. Californians for Food and Beverage Choice, a group organized by the American Beverage Association, said in a statement that beverage taxes are unnecessary, wasteful distractions from serious policymaking. Providing people with education, opportunities for physical activity and diverse beverage choices to fit their lifestyles are proven strategies for maintaining health, the group said.

Special to the News-SunSEBRING 21st Century Oncology, the nations premier cancer treatment network and largest radiation therapy provider, has announced the acquisition of Sebring Cancer Center, an affiliate of OnCure Holdings, Inc. The treatment center will operate under the name 21st Century Oncology. The arrangement becomes official through the purchase of OnCure Holdings, Inc. (Oncure) and certain of its affiliates, by Radiation Therapy Services, Inc. (RTS), which operates and manages cancer treatment centers primarily under the name 21st Century Oncology. The partnership is rooted in patient continuity of care, and also brings upgraded technology, improved safety systems, and additional resources. Our care team is pleased to now work more closely with a larger group of medical professionals. This means we can call upon specialized physicians from across the county for their expertise and opinions for optimal patient care, said Sebring-based Michael Wing, M.D. Since June, both companies have championed the agreement, under which RTS acquires Oncure for approximately $125 million. The organizations share a common goal of delivering superior-quality cancer treatment to patients on the community level in a convenient and comfortable setting. Patients benefit from heightened access to a national network of expert physicians, advanced treatment options and state-ofthe-art technology. Existing patient treatment plans wil l not be disrupted. Dr Daniel Dosoretz, president, CEO and co-founder of 21st Century Oncology, said, The acquisition of Oncure is a transformative event for RTS, and is the largest acquisition in our history. We realized over a decade ago that alternate site providers would need to offer an integrated suite of services in order to improve outcomes, operate at the lowest cost of care, provide a best-in-class environmen t for physicians, deepen pay or relationships and offer patients the best possible care available.

DearPharmacist: I have nerve pain that is chronic and related to my diabetes. I take medication for that, and want to add some supplements that might help. I promise to ask my doctor if theyre alright for me, if you pick my question and answer me in the paper. Love your work Suzy. P.T., Tulsa, Okla. Answer: Perfect because herbs are just plant-based drugs, and have many interactions and cautions. There are inexpensive vitamins that can help you too. Ill cover that today. Nerve pain is termed neuropathy and sometimes you see it as peripheral neuropathy. It can be best described as tingling, burning, radiating and sharp; some people say they feel like ants are biting. Everyones experience is different, and the sensation may feel different depending on the cause. Diabetes medications can sometimes exacerbate neuropathy by causing a drug nutrient depletion. Some of the most popular medications prescribed (ie metformin, glipizide) are what I call drug muggersof vitamin B12. You need B12 to produce myelin, a protective fatty coating around your nerve fibers. Your nerves get touchy and neuropathy can begin if you run out of myelin. Supplementing with methylcobalamin might help, but do test to see if you are low in that. Its a blood test. You never want to supplement with something you already have enough of. There is more about diabetes, and nerve-soothing remedies in my Diabetes Without Drugs book. Herbs that are in the nervine category can be very nourishing and soothing to the nerve tissue. Among the best are Chinese skullcap, lemon balm, wood betony, St. Johns wort, chamomile, prickly ash and milky oats. These are found in a variety of ways including commercial tea, dried herb so you can make your own tea or compress, tinctures, capsules and so forth. They each have a book full of side effects and precautions. St. Johns Wort interacts with many many drugs. I love herbs, and have a special relationship with them. I study them all day long because Im fascinated that Mother Nature has its very own medicine cabinet! So I can assure you that these plant drugs have side effects and interactions. Do not take it upon yourself to just self-treat without seeing a knowledgable practitioner who studies and prescribes herbs for a living. For milder effects you could always take a bath in herbs; mix together all of the following to make two cupfuls: Oatstraw, skullcap, wood betony and St. Johns wort. Put it in a clean sock and drop into your bath. You can also put 5 to 10 drops of lavender essential oil in there. Soak for at least 20 minutes, keeping the water lukewarm, not too hot on those sensitive areas. This too must be discussed with your practitioner since there is transdermal absorption of these herbs. If you have a local (small) area, you can also try a commercial product called Neuragen sold at pharmacies nationwide.

The recommendations are bound t o prompt eye-rolling and LOLs f rom many teens but an influential p ediatricians group says parents need t o know that unrestricted media use c an have serious consequences. Its been linked with violence, c yberbullying, school woes, obesity, l ack of sleep and a host of other p roblems. Its not a major cause of t hese troubles, but many parents are c lueless about the profound impact m edia exposure can have on their c hildren, said Dr. Victor Strasburger, l ead author of the new American A cademy of Pediatrics policy This is the 21st century and they n eed to get with it, said Strasburger, a University of New Mexico adolesc ent medicine specialist. The policy is aimed at all kids, i ncluding those who use smartphones, computers and other Internet-connected devices. It expands the academys longstanding recommendations on banning televisions from childrens and teensbedrooms and limiting entertainment screen time to no more than two hours daily. Under the new policy, those two hours include using the Internet for entertainment, including Facebook, Twitter, TVand movies; online homework is an exception. The policy statement cites a 2010 report that found U.S. children aged 8 to 18 spend an average of more than seven hours daily using some kind of entertainment media. Many kids now watch TVonline and many send text messages from their bedrooms after lights out, including sexually explicit images by cellphone or Internet, yet few parents set rules about media use, the policy says. I guarantee you that if you have a 14-year-old boy and he has an Internet connection in his bedroom, he is looking at pornography, Strasburger said. The policy notes that three-quarters of kids aged 12 to 17 own cellphones; nearly all teens send text messages, and many younger kids have phones giving them online access. Young people now spend more time with media than they do in school it is the leading activity for children and teenagers other than sleeping the policy says. Mark Risinger, 16, of Glenview, Ill., is allowed to use his smartphone and laptop in his room, and says he spends about four hours daily on the Internet doing homework, using Facebook and YouTube and watching movies. He said a two-hour Internet time limit would be catastrophic and that kids wont follow the advice, theyll just find a way to get around it. Strasburger said he realizes many kids will scoff at advice from pediatricians or any adults. After all, theyre the experts! Were media-Neanderthals to them, he said. But he said he hopes it will lead to more limits from parents and schools, and more government research on the effects of media. The policy was published online Monday in the journal Pediatrics. It comes two weeks after police arrested two Florida girls accused of bullying a classmate who committed suicide. Police say one of the girls recent ly boasted online about the bullying and Polk County Sheriff Grady Jud d questioned why the suspectsparents hadnt restricted their Internet use. Marks mom, Amy Risinger, said she agrees with restricting kidstim e on social media but that deciding o n other media limits should be up to parents. I think some children have a greater maturity level and you don t need to be quite as strict with them, said Risinger, who runs a communi cations consulting firm. Her 12-year-old has sneaked a laptop into bed a few times and ended up groggy in the morning, s o thats why the rules are now in place, that that device needs to be in mom and dads room before he goes to bed.

Hi, my name is Pastor R einhold Buxbaum from T he Church of the Way, a nd I would like a word w ith you. Every morning I prepare t he coffee pot for myself. I l ove the smell of coffee, b ut I have to wait until the c offee is done to enjoy it. T he coffee smell tells me t hat the coffee taste is just a round the corner. Thats how it is with the r apture of the believers. T he Lord gives us many s igns that point to the i mminent return of Jesus. W hile we wait for Jesus to s natch us up (I T hessalonian 4:17, I C orinthian 15:51-52) there a re many scoffers who l augh at us. Where is this cominghe promised? (II P eter 3:4) When I hear s ome one say this, I rejoice b ecause that scoffing is a lso a sign of Jesussoon r eturn. It reminds me of Noah, w ho had to listen to this k ind of mockery for 120 y ears. In my devotions, I a m reading through the p rophet Jeremiah. He w arned Judah and the city o f Jerusalem to turn around a nd return to the Lord, lest t he Babylonians will come d own from the north and t ake them captive. In spite o f his constant warnings t hey would not listen until t hey were enslaved by K ing Nebuchadnezzar, and J erusalem with the Temple l aid destroyed. God has blessed our A merica more than any o ther country because this c ountry was built on C hristian principles by C hristian men like John A dams, signer of the D eclaration of I ndependence who stated: The general principles on w hich the fathers achieved i ndependence were the g eneral principles of C hristianity. I will avow t hat I then believed, and n ow believe, that those g eneral principles of C hristianity are as eternal a nd immutable as the existence and attributes of God. Or listen to Benjamin Franklin: As to Jesus of Nazareth, my opinion of whom you particularly desire, I think the system of morals and His religion as He left them to us, the best the world ever saw or is likely to see. Or John Hancock, who called on the state of Massachusetts to pray that all nations may bow to the scepter of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and that the whole earth may be filled with his glory, to confess their sins and to implore forgiveness of God through the merits of the Savior of the World. That is the kind of leaders we would need today. Instead we find a general turning away from the truth of the Word of God. We also see the steady development of the Laodicean Church who claims to have it all but has nothing in the eyes of Jesus. They were all about riches, power and entertainment. So can you smell the coffee? Do you know what is coming? Are you ready? Is Jesus your Lord and Savior? Are you looking forward to His coming? (I Thess. 1:10). Yes, the stage is set for rapture.

Continued from B7 Church News Sitting on her fathers lap, a little girl gazed up at him and asked, Daddy, did anyone ever tell you that youre the smartest man in the whole, wide world? Filled with pride, her father replied, Why no, honey, they havent. Then where did you get the idea? the little girl responded. Sometimes, we act like we know more than we really do. Pride has a lot to do with why we act this way. Many times we do not want to admit that we are lacking in a particular area, so we pretend to know things that we really do not. Pride often plays a major role in spiritual matters, as well. We frequently pretend to know more about Gods will for us than we really do. This is due, in large part, to a lack of quality time spent in the study of Gods word. Paul told the young preacher, Timothy, in 2 Timothy 4:1-2, I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction. Why would Paul tell Timothy to preach only the word of God? He explains in verses 34: For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths. No matter how much we pretend, we will never know more about what God wants for us than He does. Therefore, we must go to Him for the answers, rather than making them up as we go along. It would be so much easier to create the kind of religion that we each wanted, but we would be fooling ourselves if we thought we could come up with a better plan than is found in the Bible. Finally, listen to Pauls reason for telling this Timothy to use only the scriptures as the author itative basis for knowing Gods will: All Scripture is inspired b y God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3:16, 17) The lesson is simple. The Bible is Gods only written will for us today. It is the final say on all spiritual matters It teaches u s how to live in this world and in the world to come. If we read it, study it and live it, then we will not have to pretend about anything. We will already have all of the answers that we will ever need. Kevins Komments is written by Kevin Patterson and presented by the Sebring Parkway Church of Christ, 3800 Sebring Parkway. Are you pretending, or do you really know? Kevins Komments Kevin Patterson

We had noted from t he Book ingredients of comm itment for life, shared ident ity, absolute faithfulness, u nderstand role/work of each m ember, unreserved love, m utual submission and sexual f ulfillment. Now we conclude this s eries with the final three p arts in the mix: communicat ions, respect and teamwork. 8. Communication: Death a nd life are in the power of t he tongue, and those who l ove it will eat its fruit ( Proverbs 18:21). Information f rom those who study such t hings tells us that communic ation is the number one p roblem in marriages. The r eason why this is such a problem is that men and women view communication/talking differently. Ahusband talking with wife has a fixer mindset and solutions immediately. The wife wants to share and deal in details. This bit of wisdom has man/male written all over it: He who answers a matter before he hears it, it is folly and shame to him (Proverbs 18:13). Did you ever notice that Jehovah (1 Corinthians 12:18) placed on the body two ears and one mouth? So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slows to wrath (James 1:19). James continues by the Holy Spirit to inform us the power of the tongue in 3:3-12. Continuing to draw from the wisdom of the inspired Word God, the Bible, all communication between husband wife and parents/children must be Aword fitly spoken is like apples of gold, in setting of silver (Proverbs 25:11). Do you know when you are not listening? When you are talking. 9. Respect: Rogets Thesaurus connects respect with fear, honor and courtesy as does the Bible. This may shock many people but respect is earned and commanded, not demanded. Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband and And you, fathers, do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord (Ephesians 5:33; 6:4). Acareful reading of Proverbs 31:1031 reveals much about the virtuous woman and her family. There is evidence of mutual respect and honor. Divine wisdom is never outdated: A wise son makes a glad father, but a foolish son is the grief of his mother (Proverbs 10:1). 10. Teamwork: The fruit of teamwork (or the lack of it) is seen daily in sports, business and in society in general. Yet, at the same time we think that family members can all do their own thing and then be a successful unit. Husbands, likewise, dwell with them with understanding, giving honor to the wife, as the weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the grace of life, that your prayers may not be hindered (1 Peter 3:7). And then there are instructions to children: Honor your father and mother, which is the first command with promise: that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth (Ephesians 6:2,3). Even when there is a broken family, teamwork is possible and a must as witnessed with grandmother Lois and mother Eunice and son Timothy. (2 Timothy 1:5; 3:15; Acts 16:1,2). Did you ever notice that Jesus was a team member at home? (Luke 2:51,52) The influence of a Godly home reaches far beyond the home itself: Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people (Proverbs 14:34). The home is the first training ground for leaders locally and nationally And more importantly, the training ground for shepherds/bishops/pastors of the body of Christ: one who rules his own house well, ha ving his children in submissio n with all reverence (for if a man does not know how to rule his own house, how wil l he take care of the church of God)? (1 Timothy 3:4,5) As the sayings go: as goe s the home, so goes the nation and as the twig is bent, so grows the tree. This should be a wake up call to our nation.

By JAKE COYLE APFilm WriterThe best parts of Dallas Buyers Club are of Matthew McConaughey, as HIV-positive Texas man Ron Woodroof, bucking like a bull in a Dallas hospital he refuses to let hold him. Woodroof is a cowboy hat-wearing, middle fingerflipping trailer park rat who spends his time fornicating, drinking, doing drugs and evading his debtors. Our first image of him (in what hell later recall as the moment of his HIVinfection), is spied through the panels of a dark rodeo pen while he has sex with a blonde. Hes too messed up to much notice when a large man slides in behind him. When Woodroof, an electrician, later turns up in the hospital, hes diagnosed with HIV(this is 1985, early in the AIDS crisis). With a Tcell count of just nine, hes told that he has 30 days to live. He lashes out that hes no Rock Hudson. But after a bender of denial, Woodroof turns up, of all places, at a library, to study up on his disease. Woodroof rages against his fate with unexpected tenacity and smarts: the life force of a low-life hedonist. He quickly zeroes in on drugs available internationally but not approved for use in the U.S. by the Federal Drug Administration. Dallas Buyers Club plays out not as a fight against AIDS, but against the bureaucracy of the FDAand the coziness of drug companies with doctors. Denis OHare plays a blatantly villainous hospital doctor, with Jennifer Garner as his more sympathetic junior colleague. Woodruff rapidly enmeshes himself in a grassroots underworld that circumvents the FDA. He begins smuggling in less toxic drugs from Mexico, Japan and Europe. He sets up a so-called buyers club with members of other HIV-afflicted Dallas men paying a monthly fee for drugs that prove more effective than the FDAapproved doses of AZT. Though it may be a story of sickness and death, Dallas Buyers Club is about the rebirth of a homophobe. Suddenly an outcast among his heterosexual friends, Woodroof reluctantly warms to a new community particularly a drug-addicted transsexual named Rayon who becomes his business partner. Rayon is played by an earnestly committed Jared Leto who nevertheless comes off as a theatrical drag queen cliche. They run the buyers club together out of a cheap motel, the unlikeliest pair of Bonnie and Clyde renegades yet. Its a true story long in the making (screenplay by Craig Borten and Melisa Wallack) based on Woodroofs remarkable late life. But what Dallas Buyers Club is, ultimately, is the apotheosis of another transformation: McConaugheys great U-turn. Afew years after sinking into rote romantic comedies, Dallas Buyers Club tops an astonishing streak for the 43-yearold that has included Mud, Magic Mike and Bernie. He lost more than 40 pounds for the role (Leto, too, is startlingly thin), and appears so gaunt as to wipe away any memory of his rosier, more superficial performances. Extreme weight loss, too, can be a superficial ploy, but McConaughey inhabits the clamoring, clawing Woodroof, whose zest for life (which McConaughey has always exuded) flourishes with the meaning of a moral cause. In one late scene that could be either Woodroof or McConaughey, he looks in the mirror, and smiles.

Under an agreement announced Wednesday by Michelle Obama, the nonprofit organization behind the popular childrens educational program will allow the produce industry to use Elmo, Big Bird and Sesame Streets other furry characters free of charge to help market fruits and veggies to kids. The goal is to boost consumption of fruits and vegetables among children who often turn up their noses at them. Sesame Workshop is waiving its licensing fee for two years under an arrangement with the Produce Marketing Association and the Partnership for a Healthier America, a nonprofit organization that supports the first ladys nationwide Lets Move campaign to reduce childhood obesity in the U.S. Starting as early as next spring, eggplant could be brought to you by Elmo, Big Bird could be pushing the beets and the Cookie Monster could become the Celery Monster. The produce association will develop guidelines for how members should use the characters. Shoppers and, any children who accompany them, can expect to see their favorite Sesame Street characters on bagged, boxed and individual pieces of produce. Just imagine what wil l happen when we take our kids to the grocery store, and they see Elmo and Rosita and the other Sesame Street Muppets they love up and down th e produce aisle, Mrs. Obama was to say. Imagine what it will be like to have our kids begging us to buy them fruits and vegetables instead of cookies, candy and chips. The collaboration between Sesame Workshop and the produce association will show kids that fruits and vegetables dont just make us feel good, they taste good, too, she said. Sam Kass, the executive director of Lets Move, applauded Sesame Workshop for agreeing to waive its licensing fee, which is a major source of income. For them to step in and do this is a really big thing, said Kass, who also is an assistant White Hou se chef. Sherrie Westin, executive vice president and chief marketing officer of Sesame Workshop, said it was too early to say how much revenue would be lost. Westin said waiving the licensing fee is not no rmal practice, but that the deal gives the company another outlet to push the healthier-eating messages that appear on its program.

DearAbby: I have been d ivorced five years and have f ive children, ranging in age f rom 23 to 8. When I was h aving trouble with my midd le son, Logan, I found h elp from his godfather, Carl. I hadnt seen Carl in y ears. He was my exs best f riend when Logan was born. Long story short, Carl and I have been in a committed r elationship for two years n ow. He has been more a part o f our lives than my ex has. F our of my kids love Carl, a nd he is very involved in t heir lives. Logan, however, h ates him and throws a fit if h is name is mentioned. I have t ried to explain that I didnt i ntend this to happen, but L ogan feels I took away his g odfather from him. Carl is s till there for him, but Logan w ill have none of it and r efuses to listen. Im at a loss. Logan is n ow 17. I dont want to lose C arl. Hes a great man and w ants whats best for me and t he kids. What should I do? Pulled in Two Directions in Canada DearPulled: Logan may b e 17, but he is acting like a c hild. Do not let his behavior d iscourage you from having a l ife. In another year he will b e 18 and either concentrati ng on finishing his education o r finding a job. Logan needs to realize that h e hasnt lost a godfather, a nd that everyone may event ually be gaining a stepdad. H e also needs to understand t hat if he cant accept it, he w ill find himself odd man out i n an otherwise healthy, h appy and functional family. DearAbby: I would like to share a Thanksgiving tradition our family has enjoyed for years. We realized that after a big holiday dinner we werent ready to eat a lot of dessert, so we started having Pie Night the evening before Thanksgiving. After a light meal we could enjoy the various pies or cakes family members brought. It became one of our favorite traditions. My father suggested it as a social event/fundraiser to the pastor of our local church, and it was one of their bestattended events. Our family is scattered across the country now, but those times were some of my favorites, and I thought some of your readers might like to incorporate it into their holiday celebrations, too. Good Times in Arizona DearGood Times: They might, indeed, especially if they are trying to spread those extra calories over a longer period. (And it would be a good idea to exercise the day after they indulge.) Thanks for the suggestion. DearAbby: My boyfriend of five years, Todd, is a daily pot smoker. We met during our senior year of college, and I knew he smoked. I dont use drugs, and I assumed that after college he would grow up. However, it seems unlikely that he will quit, and frankly, Im sick of it. I have asked Todd for the last four years to please stop, but he hasnt. He keeps saying he will, but I dont know how much longer I want to wait. I know its unfair to expect to change someone, but I would not be comfortable getting engaged or married to Todd if hes still getting stoned. I love him. Should I give it more time or move on? Patient Girlfriend in San Diego DearGirlfriend: You have been patient enough. If Todd had any intention of quitting, it would have happened already. Four years of procrastination are enough. Because you feel so strongly about this, its time to move on because your boyfriend is not going to change. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

One doesnt exactly e xpect Death in Venice f rom a movie that begins on a shot of female cellulite jigg ling beneath the surface of a Florida community pool. B ut as various senior-centric p ics have proven, from M artin Brests delightful c aper Going in Style to R on Howards Cocoon, g oing gray isnt automaticall y an impediment to a s creenplay that consists of m ore than death and Viagra j okes. But Last Vegas s cribe Dan Fogelman (who w rote the monumentally s marter and shrewder Crazy, Stupid, Love) prett y much sticks to the lowest c ommon denominator as he c ontrives to get four childh ood friends together in Sin C ity for the bachelor party o f the last unmarried man a mong them. Hes named Billy and p layed by a blow-dried, s pray-tanned Michael D ouglas in what feels like a w atered-down version of the a ctors magnificent aging l othario from 2009s Solitary Man. When Billy i mpulsively proposes to his strapping 31-year-old girlfriend (in the midst of delivering a friends eulogy, no less), best bud Sam (Kevin Kline) the one trapped in that infernal Florida swimming pool suggests a boys weekend in Vegas, and the rest of this white-haired wolf pack is soon to follow. Back when they were kids on the streets of Brooklyn, Billy and his pals were known as the Flatbush Four, though now theyre mainly just flat and bushed: In addition to Sam, theres stroke survivor Archie (Morgan Freeman, essentially reprising his Bucket List character) and surly widower Paddy (Robert De Niro), who hasnt forgiven Billy for skipping out on his wifes funeral (she was their shared childhood sweetheart). From all points they converge on the ultra-luxurious Aria casino resort, where they find themselves comped with a penthouse suite and a personal concierge (Romany Malco) after Archie cleans house at the blackjack table. That pretty much gives them the run of the place, though they do make one important side trip to nearby Binions, where Billy catches the eye of a jazz chanteuse shimmering in a sparkly mauve gown as she belts out Only You in a desolate hotel bar. The singer, Diana (Mary Steenburgen), is also of a certain age and has been around the block a few times, but unlike her male counterparts in Last Vegas, shes been written as more than a one-dimensional type, and shes played by the marvelous Steenburgen with a richness that goes even beyond whats on the page. Shes an oasis of real, grown-up emotion in a movie that often feels more sophomoric (and a lot less funny) than the concurrent Bad Grandpa. The rest of the movie rarely if ever rises to Steenburgens level. Most of the comic payoffs are so obviously telegraphed that the audience can see them coming within a few frames of the setup. Actors like these can sometimes be a pleasure to watch even when saddled with sitcom material, because their timing and delivery is still better than most. But in Last Vegas, everyone seems to be on a mildly diverting paid vacation, especially Freeman, who can scarcely disguise his contempt for the material. He doesnt just seem to be phoning it in; he seems to be emailing it in from his trailer.
