Enthusiasts at the time said such a facility was necessary to meet the de mand for such a bicycle racing facility within a 75-mile radius. Backers claimed to have raised $300,000 in cash and in-kind services to help with the construction of the facili ty as well as to help underwrite training activities and weekend racing events. Units from the countys waste and solid management divi sion which gave employees and earth moving equipment were used to help sculpt the hills and turns on 10 acres of the former county-owned clay pit. Then-Highlands County Administrator Carl Cool esti mated that donations accounted for 90 percent of the earth moving that formed the track. Highlands BMX was given a 20-year lease on the facility at $1 a year. Contestants and other users became part of the National Bi cycle League, which set racing standards, issued safety guide lines and provided liability insurance. They also were required to join Highlands BMX to be covered under a High lands County YMCA insurance A tale of two tracks (op photo by Barry Foster/News-Sun | Bottom photo by Katara Simmons/News-SunMiss Avon Park Chamber of Commerce Cassie Sullivan, herself an ATV racer, presents a trophy to feature winner Wes Pyburn at the Avon Park MowerPlex last Saturday night.

The survey traditionally is done during the last 10 days in January. At this time we have 142 forms turned in, but we are waiting for some more to come back, said Natalie Simons, interim director of the Highlands County Homeless Coali tion. Last year, she said counters came up with nearly 400 individuals they could document as homeless. Organizers said they had expected the num bers to be up, at least in part due to the fact there were more counters this year. There were 48 vol unteers helping in the 2014 effort compared to only 16 last year. We had a number of different groups that helped out this year, in cluding a veterans bike group. Some of their members had experience in this, which helped, said Homess Coalition board member Ken Willis, who helped in this years count. Based on last years ac tivities, organizers said they had a better handle where to go this year. We knew better where to go and we had received tips about a number of camps in the county, Willis said. Even so, survey takers Survey finds fewer homeless BY BARR Y FOSTERNews-Sun correspondentSEBRING Part of the histor ic air-trafc control tower is on the ground at the Sebring Region al Airport. The nearly 63-foot tall structure was not the victim of a natural disaster. Instead, it is the result of a project that will see it totally refurbished. The Sebring Airport Authority has received a $50,000 grant and matched it dollar for dollar, pro viding a total of $100,000 to do the project. Frasier Contracting of Winter Haven is doing the work, gently Historic tower being refurbished Katara Simmons/News-SunA crew from Frasier Contracting in Winter Haven works to renovate the original control tower cab that dates back to the 1940s on Thursday afternoon at the Sebring Regional Airport.

It will be more costly $125,000 to $140,000 more which will cut into a possible $750,000 the Southside Coum munity Redevelopment Agency District hopes to get from the state. However, Task Force member Aljoe Hinson said a pond would be ugly and would make at tracting new businesses or expanding old ones difcult. Nobodys going to build on the side of a retention pond, Hin son said. He supported piping the water and making the city-owned lot into a park. Cool said that to lay pipes to an existing pond in an old railroad bed, the city would need to dig up pavement and curbs on Hal McRae Boulevard and put pipes eight feet underground. I can make it go south. Ill just have to tear up a nice road to do it, Cool said.

BY RO MONA WASHINGTONPublisherJust as we change the layout of the furniture in our house, or change the clothes from our closets, we at the News-Sun felt it was time for a change too. That change became noticeable last week with the rollout of our new ly redesigned newspaper, and continued this week with the new look of our website. When Halifax Me dia Group bought the News-Sun in October, we changed our printing lo cation to The Ledger in Lakeland. Not only is it closer in location, but the print is much better. The ink does not rub off easily and the quality is much improved. We also have more color possibil ities for ad locations. Those changes were immediate, but the more noticable change came with a little more work. Editor Scott Dressel put a lot of thought into the redesign of the news paper as you started to notice last week. The sto ry font changed to something larger and easier to read, as did the head line fonts. Thanks again in part to printing the paper at The Ledger, the photos are crisper and there are more color el ements. The pages are cleaner and take on a better appeal to the eye. A few things have changed. We have put a new lim it on our letters to the ed itor now at 250 words. You should be able to say what is needed to say within that limit. The Sports pages will now most commonly be found in the News pages; Classied will be found with Living. Tim Spains Chefs Corner column on Wednesday has moved to the inside of the Liv ing pages, and Jan Merops Pause and Consider column on Sunday has moved from page 2 of the Living section and will appear with the Plac es to Worship section on Sunday. This will allow both columns to have a better look. The Lottery numbers have also been rede signed for a more simple, cleaner design. The new website, still at www.newssun.com, is much cleaner also and so much easier to navi gate. The big change here is that comments made now on stories must be done through Facebook, which eliminates ano nymity and removes the need to be preapproved by staff. Therefore, those comments will be post ed immediately and will have names real names attached to them. We realize this may prevent some comments from being posted, but like letters to the editor that are printed in the newspaper, if you want to have your say, youve got to be willing to own the commentary. For those who like to use their tablets or smartphones to keep up with the news, we now have a really nice mo bile-optimized site to check out. I personally love it. We have other chang es, more subtle and behind the scenes, that will be taking place in the next several months. We told you in October that good things were com ing. Some of those were already in the works and are now completed, oth ers have since been put in motion. All of it is be ing done to be an even better newspaper for you, our readers and our advertisers. Wed love to hear from you.

A4 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, February 14, 2014 www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927Romona Washington Publisher publisher@newssun.com Scott Dressel Editor editor@newssun.com VIEWPOINTS If citizens ever want this circus to change, they have to do more than complain. The good news is that the U.S. House of Repre sentatives did not spark another round of nancial jitters and a market tumble with a misguided bat tle over Americas debt ceiling. On a 221-201 vote the House did its part to ex tend borrowing authority and avoid the sort of brinkmanship that has threatened nancial stabil ity several times in recent years. The bad news is the closeness of the vote and the fact the numbers were reached only when a handful of Republicans including Speaker John Boehner joined Democrats to squeak out pas sage. Counting the speaker and his top leadership in the House just 28 Republicans wanted to avoid a ght they couldnt win and a battle which histo ry clearly indicates would have roiled the markets and damaged the economy. Its also a battle, leading economists say, that could threaten global economic stability if oppo nents of extending the debt ceiling managed to win the day. Crashing the national credit and fail ing to pay the bills should not be an option. It should be obvious that debt, by its very deni tion, is what is owed because the government has spent it already or authorized its expense. The gov ernment cannot default on its obligations without consequence, any more than a household or busi ness can. This is the wrong ght, even if 201 members of Congress cant grasp the concept. Of equal con cern is the inescapable conclusion that Speaker Boehner has lost what little control he may have had over his caucus. A leader troops wont follow has no inuence at any negotiating table. Lets make this clear: We are in agreement with the scal hawks who believe the federal govern ment is too big and spends too much money. The growth of government particularly since Sept. 11, under both Republican and Democrat admin istrations has been unconscionable. America fought two wars on the credit card. Un der President Bush a costly new Medicare entitle ment was enacted but not funded. Bailouts and stimulus programs made Wall Street whole and buried everyday Americans under a mountain of debt. The Obama years have been marked by tril lion-dollar-plus decits, year after year. The ongoing cost of Obamacare is uncertain, but its a cinch the entitlement will not make debt and decits any better. So when House Republicans argue for more ag gressive actions to improve the countrys balance sheet, logic and common sense clearly are on their side. The problem, though, is this: You cant x irre sponsibility by being irresponsible. The bills have to be paid. A functional legislative process, with give and take on both sides, is necessary to achieve progress. No such system exists in todays capital. On the face of it, one would think American vot ers would be so fed up with the Washington circus they would turn on incumbents with a vengeance at the ballot box. Not so. In 2012, the most recent election, 90 percent of incumbents were re-elect ed. If the denition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over while hoping for different re sults, then the entire nation has lost its marbles. The truth, though, hangs on a more corrupt hook. This newspaper and many others have been beating a drum regularly on the topic of rigged re districting, protecting politicians by drawing dis tricts so safe incumbents cant lose. Wisconsin not only rigged its state legislative districts, but con gressional lines as well. So did many other states. That means despite surveys showing Americans have almost no respect for Congress, the same fac es go back election after election. Most Americans dont understand the nuts and bolts of the political machinery, but until they do and get up on their toes to demand change that makes government responsive to the people again we will continue to get the government a de tached and distracted people deserve. Heaven help us.An editorial from the Beloit (Wisc.) Daily NewsThe government America deservesANOTHE R VIE WFor the past 40 years or so, a movement has been afoot to make men more like women and women more like men. This move ment has been successful. I cite exhibits A and B as proof: Cosmopolitan and Mens Health magazines. According to one past issue of Cosmopolitan, women are in a panic to follow sexy strategies to ignite our desire. But you ladies need not waste your time. Were simple crea tures. If you want to ignite the desire of normal men, just show up. As for men who sub scribe to Mens Health, how did you become such dweebs? Why have you let your self-esteem get so low that, like women, you are obsessed with your weight and how you look in a swimsuit? Our fathers nev er cared how they looked in a swimsuit. They saw the value of a belly big enough to set a beer can on. And, ladies, I know youve always been ob sessed with your looks, but things are out of hand. You dont need Cosmo for pasty-face xers. You cer tainly dont need advice on the three ways to amplify your cleavage. If you want us to notice your cleavage, to revisit an earlier point, just show up. Both magazines devote more than half their print to sex. Mens Health prom ises techniques to seduce women. Cosmo promises techniques to seduce men. In fact, so devoted are both magazines to this subject, you begin to wonder if the editors think we have any other need as humans. And, of course, they dont. You see, ladies and gen tlemen, we have let magazine publishers and advertisers beat us down for too long. They want us to feel fat, ugly and unwant ed so that we will buy the lies, and the many useless products they advertise, to make ourselves feel better. Its no mystery why weve become such shallow and pathetically helpless crea tures, completely out of touch with what a man or a woman is really supposed to be. But this St. Valentines Day, lets take a stand. Look, were humans, not vulgar animals. Were bet ter than the magazines than the popular culture are making us out to be. See, we humans have two natures. Were part ani mals, to be sure a few links away from monkeys, for goodness sakes but we also have hearts, souls, minds and spirits. This deeper nature is never pro moted in the magazines. No, sir, the magazines, and television, have done their best to keep our low er nature, our animal part, in a constant state of agita tion and overdrive. When our animal side is in amed, all we think about are animal things (like three ways to amplify a la dys cleavage). All we think about is ourselves. And all we think about is buying the tripe that advertisers are trying to sell us. And so amplied have we let our lower natures become, that men and women have lost their dis tinction. Women have become more like men, getting more masculine and physically aggressive, and men have become more like women, turning into a bunch of delicate-voiced pansies. To be sure, were con fused. And our confusion lls us with longing. And what are we longing for? Romance! Surely women prefer to spend time with men who know how to be men. Men who are condent, witty and self-assured. And sure ly women detest what so many men have become cowering little creatures, who deliberately say what they think a woman wants to hear. And surely most men long for a woman who is not afraid to be femi nine a woman who car ries herself with grace and style, an air of mystery, a dignity and quiet con dence that demands respect. It is only when the two truly opposite forces called man and woman collide that romance may occur. And it will only occur if we restore our lower, selsh, vulgar natures back to their proper place and reintro duce our higher natures. Our higher natures see no conict between a woman being successful, independent, well-to-do AND able to maintain her distinct feminine grace. Our higher natures know that a man can be at once sensitive, caring and con siderate at the same time he maintains a distinct masculine presence un like so many bumbling husbands and fathers on TV sitcoms these days. So, men, this St. Valen tines Day, woo your woman, court her, sweep her off her feet. Ladies, revel in our adoration and atten tion. When both sexes fol low their true natures, the sparks y.Tom Purcell is a Pittsburgh TribuneReview humor columnist and is na tionally syndicated exclusively by Cagle Cartoons Inc.

BY NEIL SIMPSONSpecial to the News-SunSEBRING Each year, as part of the Tanglewood Residents Cancer Ben et, a luminary program is planned with a guest speaker and the lighting of luminaries. This years program was Wednesday. Dr. Vincent Cari, a breast cancer surgeon, who now does surgery at Florida Hospital Heartland Med ical Center, spoke to the crowd that gathered. The placement and lighting of more than 1,000 luminaries was de layed one day as thunderstorms were forecast. Then, Thursdays strong winds caused another set back. Sunday is to be a beautiful day so the crew will set to work at 2 p.m. Sunday, lling and plac ing the bags every 2.5 feet around Tanglewood Cir cle, ready to be illuminated at 7 p.m. Cari was born and raised in New Jersey where he received his medical degree. He served the U.S. Army as a general surgeon, was chairman of the board at Bond Clinic for 15 years before receiv ing his masters in Medical Management. He has since opened Cari Breast Care and now performs surgeries at Florida Hos pital. Risk factors, diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer were topics cov ered in Caris talk. He told the audience that in 2013, 235,000 wom en were diagnosed with breast cancer as well as 2,200 men. Breast cancer is treated with the knowledge of the day and with all of the re search that has been conducted, treatment methods are changing rapidly. Where mastectomies were the norm not long ago, far more lumpectomies are being done today. Cari urges women to take control of their own health by doing monthly self examinations that al low them to become the experts when it comes to knowing their own breasts. When a chnage is noted, see a doctor. Family history is the most signicant risk fac tor for breast cancer, par ticularly if ones sister, mother or grandmother has been diagnosed at a young age. The most recent devel opment in treating cancer is being done at only four locations in the na tion. Early experimentation with radiating the breast cavity at the time of removal of the breast has had very promising re sults. The good news for women of Sebring is that quality care is available right here. Last year, some 80 women were diagnosed with breast cancer and 60 left town for treatment. Cari is extremely well qualied and works with a terric team at Florida Hospital. He hopes that more people will avail themselves of the top notch treatment available in Sebring.Weather delays Tanglewoods luminaria ceremony Courtesy photoDr. Vincent Cari was the guest speaker at Tanglewood Residents Cancer Benet luminaria ceremony on Wednesday. www.newssun.comFriday, February 14, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A5 KISSIMMEE Investigators say an autopsy is being per formed on a man who died while being booked into the Semi nole County Jail.

In addition to money and in-kind services from Highlands County, orga nizers were able to get assistance from the city of Avon Park. The city fur nished signage and potable water at the site. At the time, local bike shop owner and spokes man Dan Andrews assured elected ofcials and others that the refur bished clay pit was one of the best tracks in Florida. About the same time, another group of racing enthusiasts began clearing what had become an er satz dump on the far western end of the Avon Park airport. Their idea was to construct a for-purpose lawnmower racing facility. Rather than the hun dreds of thousands of dollars raised by the bi cyclists, the vast major ity of the work at what would become known as the Avon Park Mow erPlex, came from sweat equity and outof-pock et expenses by the racers themselves. The original congura tion had both a tri-oval racing track and a drag strip. However, the drag way later was eliminated. In the past decade, the mower racers obtained and erected bleachers, put up lighting, a ag stand, and an announcers booth among other improve ments. Both tracks have held statewide, regional and national events. In 2008, BMX organiz ers hosted a state qualier where a reported 788 riders from all over the southeast, and some from outside the country converged for a two-day event. The United States Lawn Mower Racing Association has made periodic visits to the Avon Park MowerPlex, dubbing the events the Minutes of Avon Park. Many of those events have brought television cover age as feature pieces on various cable television programs. However, while the MowerPlex is prepar ing for yet another national event in March, the BMX track since has fallen into disrepair, overgrown by weeds with reports of lights, bathrooms and oth er facilities vandalized. Following an unsuccess ful effort by local enthusiasts to revive the bike racing, an offer now has been made from a private sec tor to turn it into a shooting range. That is under consid eration by the Highlands County commission. Commissioners have in structed staff to issue a let ter of interest for development of the former clay pit. TRACKS FROM PAGE A1 Katara Simmons/News-SunThe A von P ark Mower-Plex opened in 2002 and was the rst for-purpose lawn racing facility in the United States.taking the cab off the top of the tower and setting it on the ground so work could begin. An inspection showed that although the met al sheeting on the roof is sound, the rafters of the cab were not. They are be ing replaced. The seals around the windows also are being replaced and the oor is scheduled for new carpeting. Plans are to have it back in place by the weekend. The staircase leading up to the tower is being reno vated as well. Those safety repairs are being made so that people will be pre vented from dropping off the side. Sebrings trafc control tower is one of only two of its kind left in the Unit ed States. The other is in Wendover, Utah. That one already has been restored. Getting the grant has been an ongoing source of frustration for the SAA. The Authority has applied for the money for several consecutive years without success. Apparently there have been so many applica tions for the grant, the Sebring request repeatedly ended up at the bottom of the list. Ofcials at the airport say an order by Governor Rick Scott to fund all re quests this year has resulted in the money coming forward. One of the problems also revolved around the lack of ability to get the tower on the National Register of Historic Places, inasmuch as it has been moved since its construc tion in 1941. Renovation on the tow er started right after this years 10th Annual Sport Aviation Expo in January. Work is slated to be com pleted in time for the Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh From Florida. Those are the only two events where the historic tower is pressed into ser vice. TOWER FROM PAGE A1Whitlock, who joined with fellow council member John Grifn founded the popular Se bring Thunder festival, attributes the hard work and effort being put into downtown as one of the things that has kept the city of Sebring aoat in the difcult recession of the past several years. I think what has been done so far is a major improvement. As far as downtown goes, I think we should keep it go ing. It was hard to get businesses in and peo ple spending money, but thats because of the re cession. People just dont have the money they are willing to spend like be fore. But there has been a lot of money thrown that way and I think weve got a good product down here, Whitlock said. Though many things have changed during Whitlocks long tenure as a council member, one thing hasnt. Harder Hall is a grand old building, Whitlock said. It was. I know we are all looking at it as its getting more and more run down every year. As time goes on its making it harder to restore. I re ally wish someone would come along and buy it, I really do. I dont know though maybe its time for the wrecking ball. Id really hate to see that happen. Current council mem bers including Whitlock have had varying opinions about what to do with the historic build ing. Whitlock hopes that the city can somehow work to save the prized jewel. As far as the election, Whitlock said hes ready for whatever happens. You dont do this be cause of the money, you do it because you love the city of Sebring. Im not nervous about this election. There are some ex cellent candidates running and Im glad to see so many involved. I think that any one of the seven would do a great job rep resenting the citizens of Sebring, Whitlock said.Samantha Gholar can be reached at samantha.gholar@newssun. com or at 385-6155 ext: 526. WHITLOCK FROM PAGE A1 BY BARR Y FOSTERNews-Sun correspondentSEBRING Its an endurance event that draws competitors from all over the United States and different countries around the globe. But its not the worldfamous Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh From Florida. It is Bike Sebring, a combi nation endurance event that includes both 12and 24-hour marathons. Were expecting as many as 200, said Dar ryl Smith, who has helped to coordinate the event since its inception in 2002. That number could dwindle if there are cy clists who are stuck at airports, locked in by bad weather in other parts of the country. We have people com ing in from 20 states and eight different coun tries, he said. New this year will be a group of cyclists partic ipating all the way from Brazil. The world record holder for 24-hour cy cling, European Marko Baloh, also is expected in for this years event. Known as Tweety Bird, Baloh has set seven world records and has been Slovenias national champion ve times. Hes staying in Lake Placid and is riding into Sebring on his bike as a warm up, Smith said. The event is com prised of two different competitions, run on the same course simultane ously. The Ultra 12 Hour is an Ultra-Marathon Cy cling Association sanctioned 12-hour event. Competitors ride as many miles as they can in 12 hours. That race against the clock begins on the his toric Sebring International Raceway. Riders then move out onto the road for the 89-mile long loop. That is run up to Frost proof utilizing secondary roads such as Ar buckle Creek, Riverdale and Avon Park/Frost proof roads. The cyclists then move to an 11-mile short loop. That includes Heywood Taylor Boulevard, U.S. 98, County Road 17 and Airport Road. As the sun falls, the riders return to the race track for the balance of the competition. The 24-hour race is a non-drafting qualifying event for the Race Across America, also known as RAAM, and is open to the public. This event starts at the same time and place as the Ultra 12 Hour event, but ends the next morn ing. Just as the 12-hour riders, the 24-hour com petitors are moved onto the 3.72-mile Sebring In ternational Raceway as a safety measure for the balance of their ride. Organizers say the course will be illumi nated, however, bicy cle lights still are recommended for overnight competition. Chris Ragsdale, of Se attle, holds the Sebring course record, polish ing off just short of 503 miles in 24 hours. He did that back in 2008. Cylist Kurt Searvogel of Sher idan, Ark. rode 271.4 miles around Highlands County in 12 hours in 2012. In addition to standard bicycles, hand cyclists, tandems, recumbent tandems and human pedal vehicles all have competed in the race. Bike Sebring 12/24 be gan in 2002. Sponsored by the Rotary Club of Highlands County and run by the Ultra Mara thon Cycling Association, it was the rst and only one of its kind in the Sunshine State. Since that time, the event has garnered com petitors from as far away as England and Germa ny and has featured international television coverage.Bike 12/24 coming to Sebring this weekend A6 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, February 14, 2014 www.newssun.com Get the paper delivered to you!

www.newssun.comSaturday, December 14, 2013 | NEWS-SUN | A7 Im not sold on a pond, she said, (Its OK) only if we have the money to do it right. The proposed Commu nity Development Block Grant would also pay for curbs and gutters along Delaney, sidewalks on the south side of Hal McRae Boulevard, lighting in the area of the two streets and possible relocation of overhead electric lines to underground conduits. The Southside CRA Ad visory Board, serving as the Task Force, made these recommendations Wednesday to the CRA Board the Avon Park City Council for its meeting on the matter at 5 p.m. Feb. 24. Other unmet needs that the Task Force add ed to the grant include Hinsons pedestrian park, widened sidewalks along Delaney and drainage im provements near the Triangle area of South Verona Avenue. Hinson said the low area on Delaney between Hal McRae and Green Street was always a lake which only got worse when the road was installed. He suggested the city leave Miami curbs on Delaney and handle drainage at a later date, but Cool ad vised against that. First, Cool said, Del aneys underground drainage basin sends wa ter onto two private lots, which it shouldnt do. The owners of those lots wont be able to build without elevating the structures, he said. Second, and a bigger problem, is that when this new project installs curbs and sidewalks along Del aney, runoff to the bottom of the hill will increase and accumulate fast er. That would only make ooding on those lots and the funeral home worse, Cool said. The Southwest Florida Water Management Dis trict, before permitting a project, always wants a plan to handle storm run off. Without a good plan, Cool said, the agency wont approve the work. If youre not going to x the drainage, theres no point in doing anything, Cool said. Maria Sutherland, ad ministrative services director, asked Cool if the city would be able to buy property for a new pond, but Cool said that the city needs plans submitted with the application with in a month. You cant buy property in a month, he said. Other concerns includ ed whether to have parking or sidewalks in front of certain properties. The resa Whiteside suggested the project not put a side walk on the south side of Hal McRae to reach a lo cal park, but instead be route the walkway one block south to Fred Con ner Street. Cool said that Fred Con ner wasnt on the streets specied in the applica tion, but it could be included as an unmet need. Hinson expressed con cern that as the project installs sidewalks and lighting in front of homes and businesses not built with modern setbacks, those businesses might be forced to rebuild, but Cool said that wouldnt happen. Buildings in place now are already grandfathered into the code and no one should worry about them being torn down, he said. CRA FROM PAGE A1felt they had been constrained as to the number of locations they could visit due to the time allotted and numbers of people involved in the count. In an effort to locate additional peo ple, volunteers made follow-up visits to determine an actual count. Willis said the count had started slow ly, but found a large group on the outskirts of Avon Park. The volunteers stopped at one of those little convenience stores and was telling the owner what they were doing. He said momento and walked away, Willis recounted. He said when the owner came back, dozens of men came out of a nearby wooded area, some waving green cards. I guess rather than paying the $50 per week or whatever for a place to stay, they would rather keep that money and live in the woods, he said. He estimated that group at more than 30 individuals. Willis said there also was a group of about a dozen homeless who have found temporary shelter at the Land mark Motel in Avon Park, courtesy of the Church Service Center. Those people are considered home less because they are in transitional housing and do not have a permanent residence, he explained. Although some of the homeless can not nd shelter, Simons said others prefer to live in the woods and be left alone. We found a guy and his wife in the Sebring area who had built a shanty where they were living and said that is their home, she explained. Simons will have a nal count at the end of the month, since a report is due to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development by March 3. According to guidelines published by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, a homeless per son is considered homeless only when he or she resides: In places not meant for human hab itation, such as cars, parks, sidewalks, abandoned buildings (on the street). In an emergency shelter. In transitional or supportive hous ing for homeless persons who original ly came from the streets or emergency shelters. In any of the above places but is spending a short time (up to 30 con secutive days) in a hospital or other institution. Is being evicted within a week from a private dwelling unit and no subse quent residence has been identied and lacks resources and support networks needed to obtain housing. Is being discharged within a week from an institution, such as a mental health or substance abuse treatment fa cility or a jail/prison, in which the per son has been a resident for more than 30 consecutive days and no subsequent residence has been identied and the person lacks the resources and support networks needed to obtain housing. For example, a person being discharged from prison after more than 30 days is eligible only if no subsequent residence has been identied and the person does not have money, family or friends to provide housing. Is eeing a domestic violence hous ing situation and no subsequent resi dence has been identied and lacks the resources and support networks needed to obtain housing.

A8 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, February 14, 2014 www.newssun.com Im pleased to announce that I will be working with the Friends of Istokpoga, as tournament director, on a Big Bass tournament to be held on Lake Istokpoga Saturday, March 15. Unlike tournaments they have held in the past, this tournament will be different. Instead of a 3-sh or 5-sh limit, each angler will be going after that one BIG sh. And if any lake can offer an opportunity to catch a wallhanger, its Lake Istokpoga. Entry fee for the tournament will be $25 per per son and one, two or three people may sh out of the same boat, but each sherman will be required to pay the entry fee, and be a current member of The Friends of Istokpoga. Anglers will be shing against each other, so there will be lots of competition. Individual membership is $7 per year and is tax deductable. Family memberships are $12 annually and Associate memberships are $25. The Friends of Istokpoga are a non-prot, 501 3c group, acting on behalf of land-owners and sher men alike to work closely with the Department of Natural Resources, Florida Fish and Game and other groups to protect and conserve this great natural resource today and for future generations. So what is a Big Bass Tournament and how does it work? Unlike most tournaments where you sh as a team or as an individual to catch a three or vesh limit of bass, in a Big Bass Tournament, each individual is limited to only weighing in one sh, their biggest bass. And the top three biggest bass win. The eld will be open to only 25 boats and takeoff positions will be deter mined by the order that the boats are registered. Once 25 boats register, no additional boats will be accepted, however, additional anglers may be added to each boat up un til 5 p.m. on Friday, March 14. All boats and individuals must be registered and paid by 5 p.m. on March 14 no entries will be accepted the morning of the tournament. The tournament will begin at approximately 7 a.m. (safe light) and end at 2 p.m. The launch site will be the State Park Ramp locat ed on Route 98. Livewell checks will be done at the launch site prior to launching all boats and exemption cer ticates will be handed out. One-hundred percent of the entry fees will be paid out to the top three Big Bass winners. Sixty-ve percent will go to rst place, 25 percent to second place and 15 percent to third. With a full eld of 25 boats and 50 shermen, the approximate total of entry fees will be $1250, with $750 going to rst, $312.50 going to second and $187.50 for third biggest bass. The strategy for this tournament is pretty simple. Instead of trying to catch your limit of bass and then begin culling, right from the start youre looking for that one big sh. The real beauty of this type of tournament is less chance of harming the sh. As many of you know, even with great care, sh often die in overcrowded live wells and from being handled incorrectly. In a Big Bass tournament, live release of all sh after the weigh-in is almost a certainty. This tournament will allow both articial and live bait as well as trolling for bass. Exemption certicates will be applied for from the DNR and issued to each participant. All sh will be required to be taken out to the lake SPORTS FISHIN AROUND...Don NortonLake Istokpoga Big Bass Tournament Courtesy photoGary Thompson holding his 6-pound bass, caught on a guide trip with Don this past Monday. SEE FISH | A11 BY DAN HOEHNEdaniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK Brianna Roque made it ofcial Tuesday, signing on the dotted line and accepting a volleyball scholarship offer from nearby Webber International University. A three-year starter for the Red Devils, Roque was weighing her options before going to a tryout in Babson Park for the Warriors, where she caught the eye of rstyear head coach Brian Goodhind. I noticed her intensity at the tryout, she obviously has a passion for the sport and it showed, he said. Weve been conference runner-up the last few seasons and this is a big recruiting class for us in that were looking for good players with character, which she ts. Predominantly a middle with her 5-foot, 9-inch frame, Roque will have her versatility tested as the players on the next level will be bigger. Ive always prepared to do whatever was needed, she said. Ive mostly played middle, but have always worked to be able to do whatever I can to help my team win. That humbleness and willingness to put the work in is another thing her new coach took notice of. We have a second team, a somewhat junior varsity team that plays against junior colleges, which is a great tool to have for us so players who might need some work have a chance to, rather than just sitting on the bench, he said. It told me a lot that Brianna said she would denitely be willing to do that if we needed her to. A lot of players balk at that for some reason and decide to go somewhere else, and wind up sitting on the bench. That showed me that shes humble, willing to put the work in and coachable. The hard work will extend to the classroom, where Roque will have to keep her nose to the grindstone as she looks toward majoring in PreLaw. Which her track record certainly shows she can and will do. For now, Roque is just Roque welcomed to Webber Dan Hoehne/News-SunBrianna Roque was joined by parents Chantalle and Dan while signing her volleyball scholarship to Webber International University Tues day morning. SEE ROQUE | A11 BY DAN HOEHNEdaniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK Under new head coach Brittany Spencer, the Lady Red Devils of the softball diamond are looking to turn things around after a down past few seasons. After completing her playing career at Webber, Spencer certainly has the tools and knowhow to point the program back toward their winning past. And her predominantly young squad showed early positive signs in a season-opening 15-5 win over LaBelle last week, before coming up short at Sarasota in a 5-2 loss to Booker. And while the Lady Dragons sport their fair share of youth, they are returning some experienced talent to the diamond after a strong season a year ago. They began the season with a 5-3 win over Char lotte in the Hendry County Preseason Tournament, but then were held in check in a 10-1 loss to a Moore Haven team that recently gave Sebring all they could handle. Lake Placid powered out of the gate Tuesday night, scoring twice in the rst, but Avon Park answered right back and evened things up.

SEE SOFTBALL | A11 BY DAN HOEHNEdaniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK The annual Bill Jarrett Ford Ear ly Bird Classic got underway Tuesday night at Head Field in Avon Park with Lake Placid squar ing off with the Cowboys of LaBelle. Looking to get into the win column after losses to Okeechobee and John Carroll at pre-season tournament last weekend, the Dragons were still looking after LaBelle topped them by a 6-2 score. Weve got a lot of new guys and they are already showing they can contribute, sophomore rst baseman Justin Mason said. We played well at Okeechobee, but it was just a couple of bad innings that cost us. D.W. Daum, in his rst year as head coach after serving the last few years as an assistant understands that with his young squad, it will take some time. They are learning each other a little bit and still have to get the mental aspect of the game down, he said. They missed some signs and left a lot of runners on Dragons roped in by Cowboys Dan Hoehne/News-SunJosh Zahn makes solid contact on this pitch during Lake Placids Tuesday loss to LaBelle in the opening game of the Bill Jarrett Ford Early Bird Tournament in Avon Park.

This will be a fast-selling tournament and you dont want to be left out.Guide tripsThis has been a tough year for bass shing guide trips. Due to the weather in January I had to cancel or reschedule nine trips so its been a busy February. Ive been out on three or four trips a week since the beginning of the month and met some great folks. Last week I took Roger Hall out on Lake Jackson and we caught a lot of bass. Fishing a Zoom Trick worm we boated well over 20 bass up to about three pounds. On Monday, Gary and Jeri Thompson from Lake Milton, Ohio joined me on Lake Istokpoga and we had a really good time. They live on Lake Milton, a nice lake in Northeastern Ohio that I used to sh quite often so we had a lot in common. Jeri caught more sh than Gary, but Gary boated a nice six-pounder to win the day. Most of our sh were caught on Rage Craws and Zoom Trick worms on the north side of the lake. Tuesday I shed with Terry Bogart and his golfing buddy Ron. A beautiful day on the lake but a tough bite all day long. We only caught a few bass, losing what may have been a nice one, but still a good day on the water. Okeechobee/Istokpoga Team Trail Nick DeSanta and I shed John Woods trail on Lake Istokpoga last Sunday and we nally caught a few decent sh. The bite was slow but we managed to catch just under 19 pounds. Unfortunately, it wasnt enough to nish in the money. One of the teams had well over 30 pounds to win. We hung around for the weigh-in but didnt get the winners names. I called John Wednesday morning to get the infor mation but he was out on a guide trip so Ill have to include it in next weeks column. All in all, it was a great tournament!Sebring BassmastersAfter two tournaments, Ronnie Westcott is leading the pack with 163.92 points, followed by Kyle King with 142.84 points and Nick Dubois with 117.92 points.REDS Big Bass TournamentThe next Big Bass Tour nament will be held on Saturday, Feb. 22, at Lake June in Lake Placid.

The Devils would scratch and add two more of their own, but it wouldnt be nearly enough this night as Lake Placid cruised to the 17-4 win.

But we only had one agrant error, so the physical is there and we just have to put it all together. Lake Placid did take the initial lead in the contest, getting on the board in the top of the second. Senior shortstop Tyler Carr lead off the frame with a sharp single to left and soon swiped second. Cowboy starter Jarred Miller was hit and miss with the next series of batters, striking out two and walking two, and was then solved by Brett Didemenico for an RBI single that brought Carr home for the opening score. LaBelle tied it in the bottom of the inning on a Baylen McCormick RBI, but further damage was avoided when, with runners on the corners, Dragon starter Jacob Cram snared a comebacker and turned it into an inning-ending double play. Miller then helped his own cause and added an RBI to the Cowboys three-run third and gave himself a 4-1 cushion. Lake Placid did scratch the scoreboard again in the top of the fth, manufacturing a run as Carr beat out an ineld chopper and eventually came in when Crams smash to short couldnt be handled. But LaBelle put it away in the bottom of the sixth with two more runs on a Justin Alderman baseknock. In Tuesdays nightcap, the host Red Devils doubled up the Ridge Bolts by a 6-3 score to get their season off to a strong start.

DRAGONS FROM PAGE A8 Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID Monday in Lake Placid Senior Softball witnessed Seminole Tire take a onegame lead for the rst half championship by dispatching Central Security 25-15. The Noles broke out the heavy lumber with Ed Engler (two doubles, triple) and Bob Roth (home run) each getting ve hits to support winning hurler Wahoo Stanley, who aided his own cause with four hits. Paul Stephenson and Frank Hedges also chipped in with four hits. Hedges was robbed of a fth safety when nephew Joe Hedges hauled in his line drive ticketed for extra bases. See if he gets invited over for dinner in the near future, observed Uncle Frank. For The Securitymen, Hedges four hits included two triples. Yates Insurance toppled Schoonis Restaurant 29-27 in a wild contest that saw 11 lead changes. Darrel Richards (three doubles), Richard Rucker (two doubles), Brian Heaphy (triple, home run) and Don Ward each contributed four hits. Bill Gallagher also went deep for Yates.

Wild Bill DeStefanos two-out, walk-off double plated the tying and winning runs. Norm Grubbs homered, Paul Brand smashed three doubles, and winning pitcher VRod Rodriguez hammered two triples.

In other words, Shirley Temple. During her diplomatic career, she was a delegate to the United Nations, White House chief of protocol, ambassador to Ghana and ambassador to Czechoslovakia. As a child, however, she was so endearing as a 4-year-old movie star during the Great Depression that President Franklin Delano Roosevelt was moved to remark: It is a splendid thing that for just 15 cents an American can go to a movie and look at the smiling face of a baby and forget his troubles. Shirley Temple Black always said her Holly wood career lasted 19 years, into the 1950s, her 20s. For many of her fans, however, she was never older than 10, and the movies that made her famous were produced from 1932 to 1939. A half-century later, her autobiography recognized that, and her book-signing tour for Child Star drew thousands across the country. Blacks star was still so bright in 1989, when she was 61, that the autobiography rose to No. 4 on the best-seller list in four weeks. Shirley Temple was born on April 23, 1928, in Santa Monica, Calif., to George and Gertrude Temple. Only a few years later, she was discovered by Jay Gorney, a songwriter for Fox Films Stand Up and Cheer. Her little song-and-dance audition prompted actor Har old Lloyd to proclaim to Shirleys mother, My God! Another Coogan. It didnt take long for Shirley Temple to eclipse Jackie Coogan as a child star. Before she was 12, she had made, among 40 movies, Little Miss Marker, The Little Colonel and The Littlest Rebel and sang her signature song, On the Good Ship Lollipop, in Bright Eyes. Dimples t her smile. She wore Heidis clothes in Heidi. She had critics writing with rapture about Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm. In 1935, she was awarded a miniature Oscar at the Academy Awards, in grateful recognition of her outstanding contribution to screen entertainment during the year 1934. For more than four years in the late 1930s, Shirley Temple was No. 1 in box-ofce ticket sales, and more than a million little girls wore Shirley Temple dresses, according to Lester David and Irene David, two of her biographers. But in 1940 her box-ofce popularity fell to No. 5, and her parents bought their daughters contract for a reported $300,000. The Davids characterized 20th Century Foxs goodbye gifts to Shirley Temple an upright piano and some of the costumes she wore as miserly. Some saw the irony in her movie Poor Little Rich Girl, foretelling Shirley Temple Blacks misfortune with her own wealth. In Child Star, she wrote: Between Father and me it was a dead heat who was least interest ed in seeing me nancially independent. As an adult, she confronted her parents about the more than $3 million she had earned as an actress. She discovered that after bills had been paid, the $800,000 left had been invested in stocks and bonds owned by her parents. Black was left with $44,000 and the title to a cottage she had used on a movie lot. Although Black kept making movies into the s for producer David O. Selznick among them two World War II lms, Since You Went Away and the critically praised Ill Be Seeing You her career essential ly was over. On Sept. 19, 1945, 17-year-old Shirley Temple mar ried 24-year-old John Agar, an Army sergeant whose father was an Illinois meatpacker. He, too, became an actor, but Selznicks pairing of the couple in John Fords Fort Apache and Adventure in Baltimore didnt advance either career. They had a daughter, Linda Susan Agar, in January 1948 before their mar riage dissolved in December 1949. A year later, she married Charles Alden Black, a Stanford graduate and son of the president of Pacif ic Gas & Electric Co. They had a son, Charles Jr., and a daughter, Lori, and the couple never had a ght, Shir ley Temple Black wrote in her autobiography. While Charlie Black moved from the American Broadcasting Cos. to then-Stanford Research In stitute to Ampex Corp. and nally to his own marine research company, Mardela Corp., his wife established herself as a commu nity volunteer and mother in Woodside, Calif. She was not nished as a public per son, however. In 1967, candidate Shir ley Temple Blacks name recognition could not carry her to Congress, and she lost decisively in a Republican pri mary contest with Paul N. Pete McCloskey, who went on to win election and re main in the House of Representatives for more than a dozen years. Black became a near-million-dollar fundraiser for the GOP in the 1968 presidential election and earned an appointment as delegate to the 24th Gener al Assembly of the United Nations. A mastectomy to thwart breast cancer hardly fazed Black, and she accepted a Nixon appointment to the Presidents Council on Environmental Quality. In the 1970s, President Ford named her U.S. ambas sador to Ghana and then the rst female chief of pro tocol, which carried the dual rank of ambassador and assistant secretary of state. She followed with other U.N. appointments in the 1980s, moving to Prague as U.S. ambassador during the last months of communism in Eastern Europe. In the San Jose Mercury News millennium series Voices of Our Time published in 1999, she recalled a November 1989 celebration of Czechs and Slovaks: It was held on the Letna Plain, where almost a mil lion people gathered one cold, snowy night and lis tened to speeches from Vaclav Havel and others. Then they all took their keys from their pockets and shook them in the air, jangled them up high. It was a clean, undeniable call for liberty. That was an amazing sight. Then freedom came to Czechoslovakia, and the roads had a lot of twists and turnings and rocks in the way. Observing it, I found that the process they went through to achieve their freedom evoked cheers of satisfaction and genuine happiness from many of us. It also evoked anxiety. Freedom is not easy to achieve. She said she thought observing the revolution was the most important event she had witnessed. Of her diplomatic years, Black observed: The thing thats nice about being Shirley Temple is that Shirley Temple opens doors for me. Shirley Tem ple Black can keep the doors open and accomplish something worthwhile. Just about everyone knows Shirley Temple. They consider me a friend before they meet me and they trust me. So, I have friends in some places in many parts of the world even the U.S. gov ernment doesnt have.

B2 DAILY COMMERCIAL Friday, February 14, 2014 B2 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, February 14, 2014 www.newssun.com PUZZLE CORNER JAKE CO Y LEAP Film WriterThe original 1987 RoboCop, Dutch director Paul Verhoevens rst Holly wood lm, isnt so much a movie to revere as a bit of brutalism to behold. It had a grim comic vibe, satirizing the savagery of both corporate blood thirstiness and justiceseeking rampages. Paul Wellers RoboCop was a techno-Frankenstein cre ated to tame Detroits rampant crime: Dirty Harry for dystopia. Remaking RoboCop is like trying to recreate a nightmare. Thats one reason why plans to re make the lm were meant with mostly dubious deri sion: Hollywood, particularly nowadays, isnt in the business of nihilism. Postapocalyptic lms may be all the rage, but a mov ie about a cops dead body shoved into a robot is a tad darker than Jennifer Law rence running through the woods. Directed by Jose Padil ha (the Brazilian lmmaker who made the excellent documentary Bus 174 before shifting into ac tion with Elite Squad), this RoboCop has updat ed the dystopia with some clever ideas and better act ing, while at the same time sanitizing any satire with video-game polish and se quel baiting. The smartest addition comes early, shifting the story to Tehran, where the global company OmniCorp has drones stopping and frisking in the streets. Were introduced to this by talk show host Pat Novak (Sam Jackson), who appears throughout the lm, bra zenly promoting Pentagon propaganda, trying to convince what he calls a bizarrely robot-phobic American public that Om niCorp drones can make the U.S. safer, too. Its a damning starting point that already positions America as the propaga tor of emotion-less killing machine. When the story shifts to Detroit, it gives the whole lm the frame of: Would we treat ourselves how we treat those abroad? Opening the U.S. mar ket to its drones is judged imperative by OmniCorp. CEO Raymond Sellars (Mi chael Keaton) is anked by executive Liz Kline (Jen nifer Ehle) and marketing wizard (Jay Baruchel, bril liantly smarmy). To turn the political tide, they de cide they need (literally) a more human face. For their RoboCop pro totype, they nd Detroit police detective Alex Mur phy (Joel Kinnaman), who has been badly maimed by a car bomb meant to de rail his pursuit of a drug kingpin. Gary Oldman (al ways good, less frequently tested) plays the scientist who preserves little more than Murphys brain in his new steel body, controlling his emotions and memory with lowered levels of do pamine. From here, the lm (scripted by Joshua Zetu mer, Edward Neumeier and Michael Miner) gen erally follows the originals plot, letting Murphy clean up Detroit before his per sonality begins to break through and his attentions turn to his maker. Any thought-provoking sat ires slide away in a torrent of bullets, which y in the way they only can in vid eo games or (questionably) PG-13 rated movies. Kinnaman (The Kill ing) is a Swedish actor with an urban American swagger. Whereas Weller had to do most of his act ing through his chin (obscured by the suit), Kinnaman is a considerably stronger force, raging at his dehumanization. What leaves an impres sion in RoboCop? Its Keatons trim and affable CEO. He and his cohorts make for one of the most accurate portraits of cor porate villainy, not because theyre diabolical, but be cause they dont think theyre doing anything wrong.

He had never gone in the few years we dated. We discussed our feel ings about religion before we became engaged. He comes from a family that attended church ev ery Sunday and believes in God. I was raised the ex act opposite; Im an atheist. I told Scott that if we had children, I would be OK with him taking them to church, but I would not join them. It bothered him a little, but we talked it over and moved on. After a difcult year that led to some mild de pression (for which Scott sought help), he start ed going to church. I was happy for him because it seemed to help him. After a few weeks he asked me to go with him. I went several times, but felt uncomfortable. I feel like a fraud sitting in the pew. Scott says he wants my support and that means attending with him. I sus pect hes embarrassed to be there without his wife. I do not enjoy it. I have been offended by some of the messages that were imparted, and I would prefer having a couple of hours to myself on Sun days. Abby, what should I do? Is there any middle ground here? Feeling Coerced in San Diego Dear Feeling Coerced: Tell Scott that you are hap py he has found comfort in going to church, but that you are not comfort able with what is being preached and nd some of it offensive. Remind him that church attendance was not part of your agree ment when you married him and that you value your solitary time at home the same way he appreci ates the service. While you might relent and go with him on major holidays some non-be lieving spouses do that there really isnt a middle ground, and because you feel so strongly about it, you should stand yours. Dear Abby: I am the mother of two girls. One of them has a lot of emotion al problems. My husband is gone for months at a time due to his job. I have told him many times that I want him to nd anoth er job that would have him home more often. He al ways says that there are no jobs that will pay what hes making now. I know that we need a good-paying job, but I need my husband home and my girls need their fa ther. With all of our daughters issues, everything falls on my shoulders and I dont feel I can handle it alone much longer. We dont live near family, and I have found it hard to make friends due to my daugh ters acting out. How do I get my husband to under stand? Married Single Mom Dear Mom: I understand how stressful it must be to have all the responsibility for raising your daughters on your shoulders. And feeling as isolated as you do only intensies your feelings. If your husband doesnt already understand what you are going through, I doubt there is much you can say that will convince him to quit his lucrative job and help with the chil dren. Because he is gone so much and making good money consider moving yourself and your daugh ters closer to your family so you can have some respite when you need it. And in the meantime, nd a therapist for yourself. Perhaps your daughters doctor or your personal physician can recommend one.Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O.

Friday, February 14, 2014 DAILY COMMERCIAL B3 www.newssun.comFriday, February 14, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B3 HEALT H Y LIVING Dear Pharmacist: I have brain fog, attention def icit and a general feeling of disconnection to the world. I take the drugs Provigil, Zoloft and Clon azepam. I also take vitamins but nothing helps. I see a psychiatrist who says Im just depressed from my divorce. Honestly, Im not, Im pretty normal but my brain feels weird. E.R., Anchorage, Alaska Answer: Your neu rotransmitters (brain chemicals) affect this. Many people feel weird in the head and its real ly, really hard to untangle. Im not even going to try, but I believe you. I cant even gure out from here if you feel weird because of those medications, or if thats why youre taking the medicines. As a pharmacist, many of our medications have value because they al ter neurotransmitters, but its temporary. You must know what brain chemi cals are off, and the ratios before treatment. I recom mend blood tests to evalu ate neurotransmitter levels. I think this is where you and your doctor should start, rather than shooting medicine darts in the dark. Two excellent special ty labs that I trust for this are Pharmasan, and Dun woody labs. Any willing doctor can order a test from them. At my website, Ive up loaded a sample report of a friend whose dopamine and norepinephrine were off the chart (and not in a good way). His brain felt weird too. See that at www.SuzyCohen.com You live in Alaska so you are probably vitamin D decient and that affects neurotransmitters. I also wonder if youre thyroid hormone has been opti mized. Its easier said than done. Studies show thy roid hormone, specically T3, improves mood better than prescription anti depressants. T3 medications are not the same as T4 drugs (Synthroid or Le voxyl). Heres how weird neurotransmitter imbal ances can make you feel: Dopamine Deciencies make you crave alcohol, illicit drugs, opiate painkillers and cig arettes. Yes, correcting dopamine levels can help addiction. But too much dopamine is associated with aggression and para noia. Imbalances with this neurotransmitter (espe cially when low) are tied to Parkinsons, depression, attention/focus problems, schizophrenia, spectrum disorders, and autism. Histamine It makes you sneeze but did you know that chronically high levels are tied to mi graines and eczema, and obsessive compulsive behavior? Low levels cause fatigue, low libido and paranoia. Serotonin Popular an tidepressants lift it temporarily, including the Zoloft you take. Deciencies can cause fatigue, mus cle cramps, irritability and always feeling hot. High serotonin is tied to bone loss, irritable bowels, trembling, nausea, and a feeling of overcondence that some might, say, call arrogance. If youre lacking nor epinephrine youll have profound adrenal fa tigue and stubborn weight gain. Youll want energy shots all day long. If youre GABA decient, insomnia and anxiety are evident to those around you. High epinephrine and youre too aggressive. Despite commercial ads, there isnt one pill to x this, you have to do dif ferent tests, and then use specic nutrients that push the correct metabol ic pathway that produces the neurotransmitter or hormone you want.Suzy Cohen is a registered pharmacist and the author of The 24Hour Pharmacist and Real Solu tions.

Sprout Pharmaceuti cals said Tuesday that the Food and Drug Adminis tration wants to see more data on how the compa nys drug, ibanserin, interacts with other medications and how it affects driving ability. Nearly 10 percent of women studied in company trials reported sleepiness while taking the daily pill. The FDAs request repre sents another hurdle in the pharmaceutical industrys 15-year search for a female equivalent to Viagra. Sprout Pharmaceuticals President Cindy White head described the development as a signicant step toward the approval of ibanserin. The three studies requested by the FDA are relatively small, involving 25 to 50 patients each. The company says it plans to resubmit its drug application to FDA in the third quarter. The company based in Raleigh, N.C., said in De cember that it had reached an impasse with regu lators after the agency issued a second rejection letter on the drug. The company led a formal dispute over the agencys decision, which prompted the FDAs latest request for additional studies. If approved, Sprouts daily pill would be the rst drug for women who re port a lack of sexual desire, a market that drugmak ers have been trying to tap since the blockbuster suc cess of Viagra for men in the late 1990s. While ear lier drugs worked on hor mone levels, ibanserin is the rst attempt to in crease sexual desire by acting on brain chemicals that affect appetite and mood. The race to develop a fe male libido booster was once dominated by mul tinational companies like Viagra-maker Pzer Inc. and Procter & Gamble, but today the space main ly consists of tiny startups. Sprout Pharmaceuticals, led by a husband and wife team, acquired ibanserin from Boehring er Ingelheim in 2011, after the German conglomerate abandoned development following an FDA rejection letter. Boehringer studies showed that women tak ing the drug reported only a modest uptick in sexu ally satisfying events. The FDAs initial rejec tion followed a 2010 meeting where a panel of expert advisers unanimously voted against the drug, cit ing its lackluster effectiveness and side effects such as fatigue, dizziness and nausea.FDA wants more info on female libido pill M C Y K

B4 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, February 14, 2014 www.newssun.com MARILYNN MARCHIONEAP Chief Medical WriterThere may be a link between weather and the risk of suffering a stroke, say researchers who ana lyzed climate trends and hospital records on mil lions of Americans. Cold weather, high hu midity and big daily temperature swings seem to land more people in the hospital with strokes. As it got warmer, risk fell 3 percent for every 5 de grees, the study found. Maybe some of these meteorological factors serve as a trigger, said Ju dith Lichtman, a Yale University stroke researcher who led the study. With global climate change and extreme weather like this weeks freak storm in the South, this could be in creasingly important, she said. Lichtman and col leagues from Harvard and Duke universities gave results of their study Wednesday at the Ameri can Heart Associations International Stroke Confer ence in San Diego. It is the largest and most detailed research on this issue. Each year, about 800,000 Americans have a stroke. Most are due to clots that block a blood vessel to the brain, and high blood pressure is a major risk factor. Some earlier studies found a seasonal trend to stroke rates, and there are biological reasons to think they are related, said one independent expert, Dr. Andrew Stemer, a neurol ogist at Georgetown University. Blood vessels constrict in cold weather, which can raise blood pressure, he said. Extreme weather can trigger a stress reac tion by the body, causing it to release substanc es that not only increase the work of the heart but make blood stickier and more likely to clot, Stemer said. In cold weather your body clamps down, theres cardiovascular stress, said Dr. Larry Goldstein, a Duke stroke specialist who worked on the study. Conversely, high hu midity may cause dehy dration, which also can raise the risk for clots and raise stress on the body, he said. You know how you feel when youre out in hot, humid weather you dont feel so hot. Several of these same re searchers published another study earlier this year that looked at stroke deaths from 1999 to 2006 among Medicare patients and found a pattern higher rates in the winter, lower in summer and a small peak in July. The new study looked at stroke hospitalizations, not just deaths, in a wider population of adults using a federal database cover ing all states except Idaho, North Dakota, Delaware and New Hampshire. Re searchers also had daily climate data down to the county level from the Na tional Climatic Data Center for 2010 and 2011. Researchers tracked only strokes caused by clots, not the less com mon kind caused by a burst or bleeding blood vessel. Lower temperatures, larger daily temperature changes and higher dew points (humidity) were tied to higher stroke hos pitalization rates. Each 5-degree increase in daily temperature uc tuation (the highest reading minus the lowest one) raised the chance of stroke hospitalization by 6 percent. Each 5-degree rise in the dew point (hu midity) raised the risk by 2 percent. The researchers did not establish a threshold when things were too hot the point of the study was tracking the general trend, Lichtman said. The results mean that during extreme weath er, friends and relatives should keep an eye on people that are at high risk, those who are older, she said. During stressful weath er conditions, you want to watch your diet, watch your salt intake, regardless of what the temperatures are, and get enough u ids, said Daniel Lackland, a scientist at Medical Uni versity of South Carolina in Charleston. Goldstein added this ad vice for people already at cardiovascular risk: Stay in air conditioning in the summer and stay heat ed in the winter, so the weather outside affects you less.Marilynn Marchione can be followed at http://twit ter.com/MMarchioneAPStroke risk tied to cold, humidity, weather swings HEALT H Y LIVING Gerry Melendez/The State/MCTA pedestrian walks across Gervais Street in Columbia, S.C., Wednesday.

SNAP S HOT S L OCAL EV ENTS This week, we will conclude our series of lessons on faith, works, and grace. As we have read in the Bible, all of these factors must be present if we desire an eter nal home in Heaven. When one puts his faith into action and obeys Gods plan of salvation, he comes in contact with the cleansing blood of Jesus Christ and Gods saving gift of grace. This person is now called a child of God or a Christian. He is counted among the saved. However, can this saved child of God ever sin so as to be forever lost? Many would say, No, but the Bible gives a different answer. There is a popular belief among many in our religious world fre quently referred to as the doctrine of once saved, always saved. This idea teaches that once a person becomes a child of God (a Chris tian), he can never do anything to fall from the grace that has been given to him by God and become eternally lost. Now, this belief would certainly sound good, if it were true. The only problem is that it rejects numerous scriptures that teach just the opposite. Let us now look at Gods word and see just what He teaches on this subject of falling from grace. Jesus taught in the parable of the sower that there will be some who, when they hear, receive the word with joy; and these have no rm root; they believe for a while, and in time of temptation fall away. (Luke 8:13) Why did these believers fall away? They gave into temptation. In 1 Corinthians 9:27, Paul states, but I discipline my body and make it my slave, so that, after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualied. Would anyone deny that the apostle Paul was saved? Yet, Paul taught of the possibility of being disqualied from that eternal prize of everlast ing life in Heaven. One chapter later in 1 Corinthi ans 10:12, Paul warns Christians (those who had been saved) in Corinth with these words: There fore let him who thinks he stands take heed that he does not fall. If Gods grace would save these Christians no matter what they did, then why would Paul warn them of the potential of falling from that saved condition? In Hebrews 3:12, the writer ad dresses a group of brothers and sisters in Christ (brethren) by say ing, Take care, brethren, that there not be in any one of you an evil, unbelieving heart that falls away from the living God. Is it possible for a child of God to fall away from Him? That is precisely what this verse teaches. The inspired apostle Peter also addressed Christians in 2 Pe ter 1:10 by saying, Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall. (KJV) From what could a child of God ever worry about falling, except out of favor with Almighty God? A group of Christians who tried to pervert the law of Christ by em bracing parts of the law of Moses were told in Galatians 5:4, You have been severed from Christ, you who are seeking to be justi ed by law; you have fallen from grace. And yet, some still main tain that a child of God cannot fall from grace! 2 Peter 2:20 reads, For if, af ter they have escaped the delements of the world by the knowl edge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, they are again entangled in them and are overcome, the last state has become worse for them than the rst. For some, to nev er know Jesus will be punishment enough. But for others, to know Je sus through salvation only to reject Him later will be far worse! Many other passages clearly teach this simple message: A child of God can sin so as to be eternally lost. If a Christian takes for granted the salvation that he has been of fered, he could nd himself reject ing the free gift of Gods grace that we all need to be saved in the end. So, what is the solution to the problem? The answer is found in Revelation 2:10. It reads, ...Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life. Believe, obey, and be faithful always until God calls His children home.Kevins Komments is written by Kevin Patterson and presented by the Sebring Parkway church of Christ, 3800 Sebring Parkway.

Baptist Convention asked to reconsider appeal ORLANDO (AP) An organization that helps sex abuse victims is asking the Florida Baptist Con vention not to appeal a $12.5 million damage award to a young man who was abused by a Baptist min ister as a child. The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priest sent a letter Tues day to Florida Baptist Convention, stressing that an appeal would hurt the victim in the case and oth er victims abused by clergy. After last months verdict, attor ney Gary Yeldell said the convention is condent an appellate court would overturn the ruling. He maintained that minister Doug las Myers was an independent pastor and not supervised by the convention. The man who accused the minis ter is remaining anonymous. He is in his 20s and attending college.Francis on Benedict: Great courage and humility VATICAN CITY (AP) Pope Francis has praised his predeces sor Pope Benedict XVI as courageous and humble on the rst anniversary of his remarkable an nouncement that he would retire. In a tweet Tuesday, Francis wrote: Today I ask you to join me in prayer for His Holiness Benedict XVI, a man of great courage and humility. It was the latest, and surely most authoritative, in a long line of praises being showered on Bene dict, who became the rst pope in 700 years to retire when he stepped down last year. His resignation has been seen by many in the Vatican as a great act of governance, enabling the reform-minded Francis to clean house in the Vatican and reboot a 2,000 year-old institution hobbled by sex abuse scandals and growing indifference in a secularized world.Church of England takes step toward female bishops LONDON (AP) The Church of Englands General Synod has moved a step closer to creating its rst female bishop. The churchs national assem bly approved fast-track legislation which could see the rst woman selected as a Church of England bishop by the end of the year. It marks another step forward on an issue that has long divided the church. Only two years ago, the General Synod failed to pass legis lation by just six votes drawing criticism from Prime Minister Da vid Cameron. But new compromise proposals, which only apply to England, are aimed at massaging the issue by giving guidance to parishes that re ject female ministry.
