We had signs in place on Tuesday, said Florida Depart ment of Transportation spokeswoman Debbie Tower. The limit from Lake Isis to Alamanda Boulevard now has been set at 50 mph, with the limit from Alamanda to the Polk County line now posted at 60 mph. Those speed limits have been set in both directions. Really, these are what we call transitional speeds, Tower said.

In addition to a number of misdemeanor counts, the el derly Sebring woman faces Felony charges of resisting an ofcer with violence, battery on a law enforcement ofcer and intentionally placing of food in such a manner that attracts a black bear. The 81-year-old Musselmans felony hearing subsequently was continued over to April 15.

She was arrested Jan. 29 by a Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission agent with help from the Highlands County Sheriffs Ofce after bowls of birdseed and other feed was found at the property in violation of a court order from Highlands County Circuit Judge Antho ny Rittenour.

Rick Scott to serve on the Florida Board of Education, he left a hole in The School Board of Highlands County. Two candidates quickly led to run for his empty seat, and now a third has joined the mix: Dustin Woods, lead pastor at Grace Bi ble Church and a volunteer football coach for Sebring High School. He led for candidacy on Thursday. Clinton Culverhouse led in February, as did William F. Pep Hutchinson III. All three are Repub licans. Woods, 28, will have lived in Se bring six years by the end of April. He lived in Sebring before now, from one week after Hurricane Charley hit in August 2004 to June 2005, serving as a youth pastor with Youth For Christ.

They werent the only ones. Dozens of concerned citizens like the Mottasheds have found themselves in a predicament after the topic of zoning changes to a proposed apartment complex, which would lie to the east of the property line of the DeSoto Road park between the park and the Sebring Parkway was tabled to a late May meeting. The meeting isnt in the plans for the Mottasheds. They, like many of the parks residents, split their time be tween Sebring and their northern homes. They will be in Canada when the council discusses the issue again on May 20. Tuesdays heated discussion ended in a 4-1 vote to table the item until then in order for the developers to bring back more specic plans to the council. Realtor and contractor Mark Gose, along with Rick Whid den, requested a change in the zoning to satisfy changes in the development agreement. The land use, wed like it changed from medium density to high density and the zoning from planned development (PD) to residential 3 (R3PD), said Whidden, who also talked about changing the setbacks for the property. According to Whidden, the density would go from 118 to 243 units total in the complex, which equates to 24.5 units per acre. The R3PD zoning allows up to 40 units per acre. Gose said that the proj ect would only be nancially smart if the number of units per acre allowed is increased. If we have to drop back to 12 units per acre, we cant do it. Its not worth it. If we are talking about 12 units, then it aint happening, Gose said. Gose also explained to coun cil that artist renderings or a visual design concept was not available due to the costs and the zoning uncertainty. Im not going to go out and spend the money on drawings if the zoning isnt what we Katara Simmons/News-SunFrancis 2 Mobile Home Park resident George Mottashed points to a parcel of land where developers want to build an upscale apartment complex in Sebring.

With this theme in mind, the community is invited to attend the annual event, which will be held April 4 at the Lake Placid High School football eld on Dal Hall Boulevard beginning at 6 p.m. There is no admission charge, and there will be food, games, entertainment, and lots of ways to learn about nishing the ght against cancer. All cancer survivors in the com munity are invited to not only attend, but also be recognized several times during the evening. Survivors and their caregivers can begin registering at 5 p.m., and after the opening ceremonies and their initial walk around the track, they will be treated to a complimentary dinner with entertainment and prizes. As the sun goes down, there will be a very mov ing luminaria ceremony during which the lights will be off so everyone can reect on the people commemorated on the glowing bags around the track. These bags represent people who have won, lost, or are still ghting their battles with cancer. Cancer remains a disease that affects many families, and although research has improved the outcomes of many diagnoses, there is still work to do to nish this ght. The Lake Placid Relay For Life event this year will have numerous teams on the eld who have been fundraising for several months to help support research and also to provide help to those facing cancer in our community. At a recent team captains meet ing, everyone took to the oor to learn the Fight Back dance, and hopefully the community will come out and join in this impor tant effort that is also fun for everyone. Go to You Tube and look for the ght back dance to learn the easy routine. Since the signature color for Relay For Life is purple, look for pur ple bows around town to remind everyone to save the date of April 4, and come out.

A4 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, March 21, 2014 www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927Romona Washington Publisher publisher@newssun.com Scott Dressel Editor editor@newssun.com VIEWPOINTS ANOTHER VIEW Alzheimers disease and other de mentias not only destroy the lives of those who suffer from them but take a devastating toll on family care givers and on those who must pay the cost of care. An estimated 5 million people in the United States suffer from Alzheimers. But that number will increase exponen tially in the years ahead because of what Robin Barr, a senior ofcial at the Na tional Institute on Aging, calls an aging tsunami. A highly cited published re search analysis estimates that the num ber of people with Alzheimers around the world will jump from 36 million to day to 115 million by 2050. A recent study in the journal Neurol ogy estimated that the Centers for Dis ease Control and Preventions gure on deaths attributable to Alzheimers in 2010 83,494 in the U.S. is a frac tion of the true number, which it esti mated at more than 500,000. Ofcials at the CDC admit that the agencys number is signicantly low. Just as alarming is this: A study by re searchers at Rand Corp. and other insti tutions calculated that the direct cost of care for people with Alzheimers and other dementia in 2010 was $109 bil lion. In comparison, health care costs for people with heart disease was $102 billion; for people with cancer, it was $77 billion. Yet cancer research will be allocated an estimated $5.4 billion this year in federal funds, and heart disease will get $1.2 billion while research on Alzheimers and other dementias comes in at only a fraction of that, at $666 million. Its time to substantially increase that budget. Theres no question that the federal government has focused more intense ly on research into Alzheimers and other types of dementia in the last few years. The National Alzheimers Proj ect Act, signed into law in 2011, set up a national plan to aggressively develop new treatments for these devastating diseases. Toward that end, research on Alzheimers and related dementias was boosted with an additional $100 mil lion in federal funds in the last year. But to effectively tackle this disease over the next decade, more funding is required. Research stands at a prom ising new threshold. As National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins said in an appearance before a Senate subcommittee in February, research has shifted in recent years, from an emphasis on treatment of individuals with symptomatic disease to primary prevention among individuals at risk. More money can fund more clinical trials. And there are signicant num bers of worthy grant applications at the National Institute on Aging that have not yet been funded, according to Barr. The U.S. must do what it can to ght this hideous disease before it consumes millions more people and billions more dollars.An editorial from the Los Angeles Times.We cant afford not to spend more on Alzheimers During this beautiful month of March there are many different holidays we observe; from the spiritual ity of Ash Wednesday to the frivolity of Saint Patricks Day. However, there is a par ticular holiday that I wasnt aware of until recently: International Womans Day. While there are no religious ties or an ancient tale that follows this holiday, there is a commendable evolution and connotation to it. It is a time that people, not just women, should rejoice this well boding time to give thanks to women. We are not being commended because of our gender; rather for our doings as women and the adversity we have overcome. Over the years, we have faced woes and struggles that are barely over yet. We are mothers, daughters, aunts, sisters, wives, queens, princesses, duchesses. What would the world be without women of the past, present or future? In this new age, we can see the equality of all people re gardless to what their gender maybe. As women, what denes us are our fundamental roles that we play, which are equally as vital as that of men. A great example: The No bel Peace Prize for physiology and medicine in 1962 was given to Watson and Crick, for new discovery of the DNA double helix. In actuality, it was Rosalind Franklin, biophysicist, whom made the rst several detections of the DNAs double helix and its proper ties, yet was never acknowledged formally due to a gender barrier at the time. As a female who can live in the United States, where I am free to pursue any choice my heart desires, because other women in the past have worked hard for the rights of women of the future, I feel as though it is almost obligatory to honor that. An early feminist that I have always admired as an individual was Queen Elizabeth I. In a day and age when women were especially considered weak without their king, she proved that false, joining in matrimony with her country, rather than a man, saving Great Britain from may hem single handedly. That is a woman. What about Benazir Bhutto or Malala Yousafzai, feminists who spoke out against the Taliban and other unjust treatments their government pursued? The gentle deeds of humanity of Mother Teresa, the soaring actions of Amelia Earhart, all the way to the ctional but absolutely sensational Rosie the Riveter, women through time have made a lasting impression on society today. Even Sophocles acknowledged the heroine of every woman in society in his play Antigone, centuries before women were recognized as individuals. Honestly, I could sit here ranting and raving about the signicance of femi nism, but what it all simmers down to is that Im proud to say I am part of woman-kind and I know women who have done valuable things and have contributed their life to make the world a better place. Though Internation al Womans Day is just one day, we can take pride in the women around us every day.Gauri Persad is a Sebring High School student. The News-Sun encourages local students to make their opinions heard.Women should be proud every day GUEST COLUMNGauri Persad Talk about March Madness. The 31st is the deadline for signing up for ObamaCare, which has made the buying and selling of health insurance one of the most complicated, deceptive disasters in the history of Big Government. The president could always whip out his Hugo Chavez pen again at the last minute and re-write another rotten plank of his Affordable Care Act. But as it stands now, people will have to enroll in the ACA by the end of this month or most of them will not be eligible to get government insurance until January of 2015. There are exemptions, as usual. If you experience a qualifying event a new baby, a divorce, a job loss youll be able to sign up whenever you want. (Turn to Page 32,364 of your copy of the ACA for details.) If you fail to enroll by the 31st, youll be subjected to a little known provision of the ACA, Section 1984, I think it is, that says anyone who doesnt enroll by March 31 will be rounded up, deport ed to Syria or shot. OK, Im kidding. The rea son youve never heard of that section was because I just made it up. But there is a provision of the ACA that most people have probably never heard of that is just as unbeliev able. Its Section 1342 Establishment of risk corridors for plans in individual and small group markets. Translated from governmentese, Section 1342 is designed to bail out the big insurance companies when they lose billions of dollars because they have to provide health insurance they cant afford to provide. In order to make ObamaCare work (by suckering millions of gullible Amer icans into thinking it was free or cheap), the White House and Democrats in Congress told insurance companies they had to offer affordable policies. But the insurance compa nies balked. They knew in advance they couldnt possibly be able to offer ObamaCares Cadillac policies at such low-low prices without soon incurring huge-huge losses. No problemo, the gener ous ObamaCare-givers said to the insurance companies. Well bury this little risk corridor mumbo jumbo Section 1342 in the act somewhere. Congress wont nd it for years. It guaran tees that the federal government will cover your ObamaCare losses through 2016. Just dont blab about it, please, because its kind of embarrassing for us progressives to be seen subsidizing Big Health Insur ance. It turns out that behind all the high-minded B.S. about providing every American with affordable healthcare, ObamaCare is simply another corporate welfare project. Only this time its for the benet of health insurance companies. Section 1342 reminds me of those sweet deals the big New York nancial compa nies got when they and their pals in Congress teamed up to make the economy collapse in 2007-2008. Those too-big-to-fail banks and dont forget GM got their federal-taxpayer bailouts at the back end. Under Obama, the bailouts for insurance companies come at the front end. We all remember those promises from Washington that it will never happen again. Well, its going to in a very big way. Section 1342 ultimately will cost American taxpayers tens of billions. Im sorry to say most Americans wont even no tice this latest example of crony capitalism. Theyll be too busy guring out how or where to get the level of health care coverage they want or need. Former New York State Lt. Gov. Betsy McCaughey said in the New York Post that the 1342 bailout section is meant to hide the full fail ure of the presidents signature health law until after the next presidential election. Shes right. But its too late for Obama now. Because of the mess hes made of healthcare reform, Democrats will be swept away by a Republican wave this No vember and, lets pray, again in 2016. By then, if Republicans dont blow it, ObamaCare will be DOA and Section 1342 will be just another liberal nightmare, not a reality.Michael Reagan is the son of President Ronald Reagan, a political consultant, and the author of The New Reagan Revolution (St. Martins Press).

Fells said that his time on the council was a privilege and a great experience and thanked all those who supported him during his election campaign and helped to get him into public ofce. I havent met one city employee I didnt like or that wasnt kind and courteous to me. Its been a huge privilege to work with all of you, Fells said.FINAL MEETING FOR HENSLEY, CLARK AND FELLS I was spending so much time trying to help my home town, Woods said. His mother taught in the Polk County School District and he volunteered with schools there, before volunteering as much as 25-35 hours per week in Highlands County. He sees Highlands as unique. There is a balance be tween school excellence and compassion for students. Ive seen school administrators go way out of the way to meet the needs of students and (their) families, even with a large high school of 1,500 students. To see that makes me proud, Woods said. He likes what he sees and wants to expand on it. He also has no intention of stepping down or stepping back from his work as a pastor or coach, although he may lead a little less on the gridiron if elected, he said. Woods said he would love to see the members of the county take an equal interest in all three can didates so they can learn their platforms and agendas. Its easy to pick a favor ite and ride that wave, Woods said. Its our responsibility to learn as much as we can and protect the value of our school system. He also said he wants to see everyone get out and vote. Woods is running against Hutchinson, a native of Avon Park and Sebring resident who taught in all of the district schools, except Memorial Elementary School, from 2005-2008, and was in the Florida Legislature in 2010-2011. Hutchinson recently told the school board that they lost a great local support er when Tuck left. He also said he would like to show people the poor condition of local schools when district ofcials begin campaigning for a half-cent sales tax. Culverhouse, a lifelong citizen of Highlands County for 33 years, has been married 11 years to Ashley a district teacher and they have two children, ages 11 and 6. They have attended Grace Bible Church, where Woods is now pastor, for the last eight years. Culverhouse has volunteered with the school district through the Parent Teacher Organization, School Advisory Council, and District School Advisory Council. Culverhouse has also served 11 years as an Avon Park city reghter and is now ofce manager for a local law ofce. Of the three, Culver house is the only one who has raised money for his campaign so far, according to campaign treasurers re ports on the Supervisor of Elections website at www. votehighlands.gov. He has $2,475 in contributions as of Feb. 28 all monetary contributions with $225.98 in expenditures. Tuck, who had planned to run for re-election, had already received $1,550 in cash contributions and $14.97 in in-kind contri butions, and had spent $733.69 by December 2013, according to the Supervisor of Elections website. RACE FROM PAG E A1Its our responsibility to learn as much as we can and protect the value of our school system.Dustin Woods candidatequite a bit of lobbying to state and local ofcials in an effort to get the limit raised once construction was nished. However, Tower said that the change comes as a result of surveys done by FDOT engineers. We had told folks that when the construction project was completed that we would do a speed study. That is not uncom mon for us, she said. Tower said that many times after a highway construction project is done, engineers look at the situation to see how trafc patterns develop in response to the new driving conditions. We go out in the eld and literally measure trafc speeds. The engineers want to see at what speeds drivers are traveling, she said. That is then converted into what engineers dene as the 85th percentile, which is approximately the level at which most drivers are traveling. Those numbers are then plugged into the roadways design standards to come up with a reasonable speed limit. Although there had been loud complaints about speed limit enforcement and charges of a speed trap in the area, Tower said the FDOTs gures did not come from citations. Actually, in this case, the speed limits as posted are a bit above those the design would call for, Tower said. But we recognize that given the nature of the roadway and the way that drivers are using it that 60 mph is a reasonable speed for that segment of roadway. SPEED FROM PAG E A1Musselman was allowed to return home under the proviso that she would cease and desist feeding bears. She was arrested again on March 3 af ter more food was found scattered on the ground outside her home in a rural area off Kenilworth Boulevard. Reportedly, the focus of the examinations will be to determine whether the one time physical education teacher has the ability to determine right from wrong and whether or not state ofcials will be able to continue with the action. Should they determine that Musselman is incompetent, the proceedings could grind to a halt Principals in the case indicate there probably be two reports, one arranged by the prosecution and the other by the de fense. Questions that remain to be an swered are whether Musselman was competent in January at the time she received instruction from Highlands County Cir cuit Court Judge Anthony Rittenour, and whether she currently is competent to stand trial. Musselman also has been set for a March 31 hearing for the misdemeanor counts. Whether competency ndings would be applicable there remains un clear. At least until the April hearing, Musselman reportedly will remain housed at a secure adult congregate living facility. MUSSELMAN FROM PAG E A1 M C Y K

He then attended the University of Florida until being drafted in the U.S. Army in 1957. After returning to Avon Park, he was an electrician with Florida Power un til starting Palmer Electric in 1965 on Main Street, where his family had run a rooming house and grocery store.

Funeral Arrangements entrusted to: Stephenson-Nelson Funeral Home, Avon Park stephensonnelsonfh.com PALMER OBITUARIES BY ERIC PERAThe LedgerLAKELAND Robert Butler, the celebrated painter of vivid depictions of Florida wildlife, died early Wednesday morning from complications related to a 30-year history of diabetes. He was 70. Butlers early career began in a group of black landscape artists known as The Highwaymen. Butlers wife of 50 years, Dorothy, said her husband had been hospitalized in Bartow for the past week, and had been moved to a Lakeland nursing home where he was to begin therapy to recover from the effects of a stroke. She learned early Wednesday morning that hed passed. I didnt expect it to be so soon, she said from her Lakeland home. He meant the world to me. Hes always been very lov ing and he loved his kids. Hes the only man in my whole life. Butler also leaves behind nine children. Friends, fellow artists and art dealers said Butler was a gifted, self-taught talent who often went out of his way to guide and nurture anyone wishing to learn his craft. He was just a great, fun guy; he could be a friend to anybody, said Levy Harrison, a Lakeland tire dealer and artist who of ten hosted painting workshops led by Butler. The two collaborated on a painting of Florida pine woods that hangs in Levys shop on South Florida Avenue. I think I gave him a set of tires for it, Harrison said. He did a different style than the other Highwaymen. He was right up there with the better Florida artists. Rick Powers, a founding artist of the Arts Ensem ble Education Foundation and Healing Arts Center in Winter Haven, became his student when the two met in 1989 at one of Levys workshops. We struck up a friend ship right off the bat, he said. I begged him for private lessons and he said, I dont do that. Still, Powers said, his mentor spent hours over the years helping him hone his craft. He taught me what I know. He was always trying to get my speed up. He was very giv ing of his time and talents. Born in the small, south Georgia town of Baxley, Butler moved at the age of 4 to Okeechobee, where his mother worked several menial jobs, including picking tomatoes and serving in a restaurant. Author Catherine N. Henns of Jacksonville wrote in her book: The Journey of the Highway men, that Butler worked as a hospital orderly before painting in earnest in 1968. His death leaves just 17 of the original 26 Highwaymen who gained fame for their ability to swiftly paint scenes depicting Floridas palm-strewn shorelines, bayous and swamps. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s they peddled their works in and around Fort Pierce, where the group of mostly teenagers found a mentor in land scape artist A.E. Bean Backus. In 1994, curator Jim Fitch of Sebring gave credence to the groups growing body of work, coining the name The Highway men and introducing their paintings to the upper echelons of Floridas arts scene. Butler stood out as one of the groups most talented artists, drawing in great detail the backwoods hed grown up in, said Howard Brassner, an art dealer and gallery owner in Lake Worth. Robert Butler was one of the few of them that really transcended the Highwaymen movement, he said. He was a ne, ne nature artist. More than any other in his group, Butler painted in painstaking detail using more natural colors and light, Brassner said. He wasnt painting one of those fast, simple pictures that could be done in 40 minutes. He would do a eld of grass and thered be thousands of individu al blades. Dorothy Butler said her husband had type 2 diabetes for the past 30 years, but the disease worsened over the past month or so, requiring treatment with insulin. Prior to his health failing, he looked forward to continuing his art.Famed Highwayman painter Butler dies at 70 Rick Runion/The Ledger (2008)Robert Butler, a Florida wildlife artist, talks about his paintings that were destroyed in a 2008 re at the Artists Gallery in downtown Lakeland. Butler, whose early career started in a group of artists dubbed The Highwaymen, died Wednesday.services are 11 a.m. Saturday at Avon Park Lakes Baptist Church, with Rev. George Hall ofciating. Dorothy Allen, gener al manager of Palmer Ace Hardware, said Palmer hired her 20 years ago, the same day she arrived in Highlands County as a divorced mother of three. Palmer always greeted her with Good morning, Sunshine! whether she felt cheery or not. We loved him like a dad, she said through tears. We felt kind of like part of the family. John Barben of Rob ert J. Barben Inc. in Avon Park practically was family, growing up with Palmers son, Mark. Their fathers, at that time, worked long, hard days trying to make a go of it, Barben said. Allen said Palmers car ing attitude kept turnover low. He was just the best boss ever, Allen said. A hard worker, dedicated and intelligent. And what a memory. He knew where everything was. Palmer had worked at the store when it was his parents grocery. Barben said when Palmer set up an electrical service busi ness next door, his workers stayed in a boarding house that is now the equipment rental business. He trained a lot of young guys, guys who had fallen on hard times. Rob ert would give them a chance, Barben said. When Palmers grandson, Bobby, served in Chile as a missionary and came back to study medicine, Palmer said it was time to give back a bit more, Bar ben said. With that generation, (you) dont know what they did, Barben said. They didnt do it for a pat on the back. They did it because it was the right thing to do. PALMER FROM PAGE A1 M C Y K

www.newssun.comFriday, March 21, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A7 need, Gose said Tuesday evening. This apartment complex will be a walkup complex. Its going to be like everything you see in Orlando or Tampa. I wasnt expecting this much push back on it. The push back came from both council members and Francis 2 residents Tuesday. These development agreements come out to be a big joke because weve never not modied them, said Councilman John Clark during Tues days meeting. Trafc is the rst issue, compatibility is the second. Youre talking about a retirement community and this place is going in the other direction. Put yourself in the shadow of a three-story building, youd feel upset too. Its just too many units stuffed into that nine-acre property there, Mayor George Hensley said. Council president Andrew Fells said that an apartment complex is much needed in the city of Sebring. This is progress. When the young people, like myself, go off to college and want to come back theres no where for them to stay. I would challenge all of you to go out and nd a rental in Sebring. There arent any. Fortu nately for me, when I nished college I was able to come back and purchase a home. That option isnt available for everyone. The younger generation has to have somewhere to live that they can afford, otherwise they wont be coming back, Fells said. Thursday morning, the Mottasheds were out and about enjoying the rst day of spring and were very vocal about their concerns. The city deserves better than low-income hous ing (and) this is what this is going to be. Theyre say ing upscale, but what doctor or nurse do you know is going to live in a tiny 500-square-foot apartment? George Mottashed asked. What bothers me the most is that with one stroke of a pen you can eliminate years worth of work. The planning and zoning make these or dinances and rules and someone can just come in and change it. None of this sounds right. They havent done any work. Theyve already changed the ordinance for the con tractors once. When is the city going to make them do any work? Gose said on Thursday that the plan for development currently is two buildings with a total of 48 units. The units would be of varying sizes, ranging from efciencies to three bedrooms. A clubhouse, pool and sports ar eas would also be built at the start of the project. Though a development agreement is already in the hands of the city attor ney and contractors, Gose said that the 130 acres is still up for sale. Its not listed on the market, but it is for sale. If someone wants to come in and buy it they can, Gose said. The proposed apart ments would sit right in front ofthe home of Ruth Allen, whose family has owned property in Francis 2 for 30 years. You cant stop progress. Im not saying I want to, I dont think anyone here wants that, but this is a re tirement village and we want to keep it that way. Theyre going to stop the sky for us. I have to come out and look at these three-story buildings, how will I see the sun? This is not a ne-tuned situa tion, Allen said. The compatability issue is critical, said Jean Mottashed. Sebring should be a shining model of good government and good planning. There are really no guarantees here. They may not build these lovely, upscale places like they say, they may not be able to get doctors and nurses in here. The only thing that is guaranteed is that the city is going to make a deci sion to change or not to change (the zoning) and a lot of us wont be here.Samantha Gholar can be reached at samantha.gholar@newssun. com or 385-6155 ext: 526.

MCYK A8 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, March 21, 2014 www.newssun.com SPORTS For many of you, the names Harry and Char lie dont mean anything, but for those of us who are members of the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society (B.A.S.S.), weve spent many, many hours reading and laughing along-with the hapless shermen featured for many years in this monthly shing magazine. Contributing editor, Don Wirth has been writing about their shing antics for over three decades, and like many shermen, I assumed they were ctional char acters. That was before I met Steve Dubois and Joe Kozic. If there was ever a Harry and Charlie its got to be these two guys. Like Abbott and Costello, or Lewis and Martin, these two guys put new meaning into the phrase fun shing. Joe is the real funny man, while Steve is more the straight man, or often the foil. Get the two of them together, and its like going to a comedy club. Joe is almost a oneman show, throwing out zingers and one-liners, but the real laughs come when Steves the target. Saturday, they proved theyre not only funny, but that they can catch sh! Winning the Friends of Istokpoga BIG BASS tournament was Joe Kozic with a beautiful 5.82 pound bass. Just barely out-done by his partner, Steve Dubois took second place with a hefty 5.72 pounder. In between all the joking around at the weighin, Joe indicated that there were plenty more where these two sh came from. We probably had 30 pounds of bass with our ve biggest sh, Joe recalled. And it was pretty cool to be letting ve pounders go. With a wry smile, Steve agreed. We caught all our sh in a pretty small area, with boats on both sides of us, and they couldnt get a hit he recalled. It was driving them nuts seeing us catch all these sh. Ive known Steve for a number of years, but I only met Joe months ago after I opened REDS. When the two of them arent shing, youll usually nd them in the store joking around and having fun. Neither is a stranger to the winners circle and both are strong competitors, but they truly put the word fun into shing! Ive shed tournaments since 1970 and most of the guys who sh competitively are quiet, reserved and almost secretive. Not Joe and Steve. Get in a tournament with the two of them and they never stop talking, laughing and having a good time. We could all learn a thing or two from these guys. Sure, its nice to win, but isnt the whole point to have fun? Although we didnt have a lot of lead time setting up the tournament, 19 people signed up for the event, and 15 of them became new members of The Friends of Istokpoga. Third place went to Geoff Balog with a nice 5.32 pound bass, followed by Tom Tarasoff, with another good sh at 5.16, and Mark Beaver, with a 4.41 and JD Parker with a 3.82. It was a fun event and everyone who participated had a good time. Thanks to Gary Albin and Trails End for hosting the event, as well as the FOI volunteers.

First, the Michigan native and devout Tigers and Red Wings fan graduated from high school. Then he got drafted twice. The rst drafting was by the Chicago White Sox. The slick-elding, hardhitting second baseman had patterned his game after Tigers great Charlie Gehringer. The White Sox envisioned John as a player for their future. However, the second drafting came from Uncle Sam and trumped the rst. With World War II waging on two fronts, John bypassed his chance at baseball stardom and enlisted in the Navy. He took part in the invasions of Leyte Gulf and Okinawa and received battle citations for his valor. Returning to the States in 1946, John decided to forego his baseball dreams and go to work in the auto supply business near Detroit. He was a UAW local president for 28 years. After retiring in 1986, he began spending his winters in Lake Placid and playing senior softball. At the Lake Placid Moose Lodge he is a legend. Known as Two and Out John, the barmaid puts up a shot and a beer for him as soon as he walks through the door. Doctors orders, John explains. Drink plenty of liquids for longevity. On Monday, Two and Out John ripped four hits as his Schoonis team defeated Seminole Tire 3124. Norm Grubbs (three doubles) had six hits, Kyle Saunders hit for the cycle and Elston Hedges hammered two long home runs. Mike Kratt and Ron Wickman each ashed leather with two outstanding catches apiece. For The Noles, Wahoo Stanley homered twice and drove in eight runs. Bob Roth (home run) and Ray Wilson (double) had four hits each. Yates Insurance won their ninth straight game and clinched the second half championship by upending Central Security 24-13. Leading the Yates hit parade, with four each, were Cliff Bluml (double, triple), Bill Gallagher (double), Brian Heaphy (triple), Howard Carney (double) and Phil Lucas. For Central Security, a quintet of hitters had three each.Yates win clinches second-half titleSEE SENIORS | A11 BY DAN HOEHNEdaniel.hoehne@newssun.comTrey Frazier lead the offense with two key hits late and Kenny McGrath went six strong innings to move the Red Devils to 11-2 on the season with Tuesdays 7-5 win at DeSoto. As as been the case in recent outings, it took the Avon Park offense a few innings to get going. It was a scoreless tie through four innings as McGrath and Bulldog starter Bay Hale locked horns in putting up goose eggs. The Devils scratched for the games rst run in the top of the fth, with Luis Martinez coming around on an Alfred Brown single. The narrow, one-run lead ballooned to ve as Avon Park plated four in the sixth. Mykel Gordon lead it off with a double and would score on a J.C. Cobb two-bagger to right.

www.newssun.comFriday, March 21, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B9 RELIGION Information abounds on the teachings of various denominations regarding the practice of infant baptism pros and cons! Perhaps a good summary of the infant baptism mindset is expressed in The Heidelberg Catechism: Infants as well as adults are in Gods cove nant and are His people. They, no less than adults, are promised the for giveness of sin through Christs blood and the Holy Spirit who produces faith. Therefore, by baptism, the mark of the covenant, infants should be received into the Christian church and should be distinguished from the children of unbelievers. This was done in the Old Testament by circumcision, which was replaced in the New Testament by bap tism. This 1563 AD manmade document must be examined in light of the inspired Word of God. Since infant baptism is not a New Testament doctrine or example, it is important to understand why and how this came to be accepted by so many churches established by men and women. Sandra DeGidio, O.S.M. in an ar ticle, The Sacrament of Baptism, observed, In the Church of the rst three centuries adult Baptism was the norm. and Soon adult Baptisms declined, infant Baptism became the norm and the process and theology of Chris tian initiation of adults as practiced in the early Church became a lost art. According to various historical sources, the ear liest reference to infant baptism was by Irenaeus (AD 130-202) in his work Against Heresies. Origen (185-254) and Tertullian (155-230) also mention infant baptism as traditional and customary. Following the example of the Bereans in Acts 17:11, (they received the word with all readiness and searched the Scrip tures daily) we will consider the bases offered to justify infant baptism. Many people accept various doctrines never questioning their origin or validity in light of Truth. The rst step would be to identify the meaning of sin a missing of the mark; an act of disobedience to divine law (Vines Complete Expository Dictionary). Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin (James 4:17). There must also be a clear understanding between the guilt of sin and consequences of sin. The guilt of sin is personal, whereas the consequences of personal sins may affect others also physically, i.e. drugs, AIDS, DUI, etc. The person who sins will die. The son will not bear the punishment for the fathers iniquity, nor will the father bear the pun ishment for the sons iniquity; the righteousness of the righteous will be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked will be upon himself (Ezekiel 18:20). The guilt of sin is not something you inher it, but something you do. One of the often used reasons for infant baptism is the references to household conversions/baptisms such as Lydia and the jailor (Acts 16:13-15; 25-34). First, these conversions were from the orders given by Jesus in Matthew 28:18-20 and Mark 16:15,16. This Divine plan included baptism proceeded by preaching and believing the gospel. There are many assump tions in this reasoning for infant baptism: husband/ wife; children; infant children. None of these are stated in the households mentioned. Another effort to justify infant baptism as Biblical is the claim that such is the same as circumcision under the Old Law. Colos sians 2:11,12 is claimed to teach infant baptism based on this premise. The context is speaking of those who were dead in transgressions and forgiven of the same. If this is teaching that infant baptism is parallel to circumcision, then only male babies would be baptized and only on the eight day after birth. (Genesis 17:12; John 7:22,23) Galatians is an inspired letter straight to the point: You have become es tranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justied by law; you have fallen from grace (Galatians 5:4). In this pointed message, Paul was conscious of his responsibility as a gospel preacher; For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ and Have I there fore become your enemy because I tell you the truth? (Galatians 1:10; 4:16). Such must be the mindset of every teacher/ preacher of the gospel of Christ!

My doctor recommended a stool softener and laxative for me if it gets bad. What else do you suggest for colon health? P.C., OcalaAnswer: Denitely clean yourself out. Im not recommending gastric lavage, Im thinking simple solutions like drinking more water, eating more ber and taking probiotics and enzymes. The following dietary supplements act like a sponge binding bile acids and toxins in your intes tine to form an insoluble complex that you excrete. Think of these as a rescue remedy, not for chronic daily use because they will latch on to your medicine and supplements: Bentonite clay, activated charcoal and psyllium husk. Youd pick only one, not all. The bentonite and charcoal can be extremely constipating so be careful, and ask your doctor if theyre OK. This may sound weird but your colon is connected to your head and your gut is often referred to as your second brain. Thats why avoiding various food groups improves mood and migraines. Colonics are an option. Gun shy about these? I dont blame you. Most co lonic practitioners use an intimidating speculum, but the newer, thinner nozzles are more comfortable. Thats what Im told by my friend, Francis Gonzalez, ND, an IACT certied colon hy drotherapist instructor and founder of Fluid Water Therapy in New York (www.uidwatertherapy.com). I-ACT stands for International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy. Colonics improve lower intestinal health, especially if you eat lots of dairy, meat, white our, processed, rened foods, milk chocolate, coffee or alcohol. For some reason, after a while, these foods encrust the intestines with a sludge made up of thick mucus, fecal material, and other trapped debris. The sludge promotes the growth of pathogens adding to the intestinal mess. If you have any chronic illness, I urge you to consider internal pollution, not just environmental pollution. Digestive enzymes and probiotics can help, and they are more effective after colonic therapy. Colonics (and gentle enemas) help remove toxins from your intestine, reduce bloating and relieve constipation. Colonics help remove rotting material like meat that gets stuck in your intestinal tract. Warming up to the idea? Be warned that many colonics are per formed by untrained per sonnel using unregulated, home-made systems referred to as Woods Gravity method. Dr. Gonzalez provided some bare minimum criteria that your colon therapist should meet: Be certied and trained by the International Association of Colon Ther apists (IACT) and/or the National Board for Colon Hydrotherapy (NBCHT). Only utilize FDA-registered Class II medical devices to conduct the therapy. Only use disposable rectal nozzles that have been sterilized. Use colon hydrothera py equipment installed with back-ow preven tion valves so that fecal matter from one patient cant contaminate another (heaven forbid!). Can ensure that the water that is used to cleanse the patients intestinal tract is proper ly puried to eliminate any water-borne microorganisms.Suzy Cohen is a registered pharmacist and the author of The 24Hour Pharmacist and Real Solutions.

WomenAgainstAlzheimers is a national network of women working to speed the pace of research to ght Alzheimers disease. In a statement released by the organization Tuesday, Summitt said that my ght is not only a personal one, but one for all those battling Alzheimers disease... recognizing the majority ghting this disease are women. Summitt won 1,098 games and eight national titles in 38 seasons as Tennessees coach before stepping down in April 2012, one year after announcing she had early-onset dementia.Summitt joins network fighting Alzheimers The news is just a click away!www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN MCYK B2 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, March 21, 2014 www.newssun.com JOCELYN NOVECKAP National WriterIf you have a kid of a certain age especial ly a girl, preteen or thereabouts then you know the young-adult entertain ment message of choice these days: Youre you, and nobody else. Dont let them dene you. Dont let them put you into one of their neat little slots. Youre unique. And youre gonna show the world. You go, girl! So its no surprise that this is the message of Di vergent, the latest young adult blockbuster-in-waiting. Its also no surprise that the emerging young star Shailene Woodley delivers a crucial dose of humility, sensitivity and intelligence in this showcase role. And its no sur prise, either, that she generates nice chemistry with her rather absurdly goodlooking co-star, Theo James. What IS surprising is that with all these promising elements, Divergent, the rst of three installments based on rst-time author Veronica Roths trilogy, ultimately feels so lackluster. For a lm predicated on the principle that being different or divergent is what makes you special, Diver gent just doesnt diverge enough from the pack. Not that this will hurt the lms chances at the box ofce. Like The Hun ger Games, the franchise to which it will unavoidably be compared, Diver gent has a ready-made audience of fans just waiting to ll those seats over 11 million books have been sold, after all. Those book fans will have a crucial head start. Divergent takes a good deal of time explaining plot mechanics, but If you already know whats hap pening, you can spend more time admiring, say, those cheekbones on James or his day-old, dystopian stubble. In a nutshell, Diver gent, directed by Neil Burger, takes place in a futuristic Chicago, a bleak version indeed of the Windy City. Half of every building seems to be destroyed, leaving hulking shells. Civilization is divided into ve factions, based on human virtues: Dauntless, Abnegation, Erudite, Amity, and Candor. Beatrice Prior (Woodley) is born into Abnegation. But at age 16, a citizen can choose their own faction, at the Choosing Ceremo ny. Right before, they take an aptitude test that tells them which faction they t best. Beatrices results are downright scary: She has not one virtue, but all of them. She is divergent which makes her dan gerous. To the distress of her parents (Ashley Judd and Tony Goldwyn), Beatrice opts to join Dauntless, the most courageous faction, but also the most reck less: Pierced and tattooed, they look like unusually t punk rockers. Soon shes in boot camp, jumping on and off trains (trains never seem to actually stop in this movie) and into pits, and ghting viciously in the ring, under the guidance of the initially unfor giving Four (James), her trainer. Gradually, Beatrice shes renamed her self Tris becomes buff and strong. But will it be enough to survive? On top of all this, theres a political storm brewing, led by the villainess Jeanine Matthews, played by a blonde and stiletto-clad Kate Winslet in one of her less convincing performances (in a sadly under-written role.) Matthews is the leader of Erudite, which means shes got a killer IQ along with those killer heels, and shes convinced that Di vergents are a threat to her plan to overthrow Abnegation. Then theres Peter, another Dauntless initiate who comes from Candor, meaning the role is perfect for the fast-talking Miles Teller so memorable opposite Woodley in The Spectacular Now, but un derused here. Theres some entertaining action here, but the action most teen fans may like best involves a liplock as teen movie kisses go, its a really good one between Woodley and James. Divergent, a Summit Entertainment release, is rated PG-13 by the Mo tion Picture Association of America for intense violence and action, thematic elements and some sensuality. Running time: 143 minutes. PUZZ LE CO R NE R Solution on B9 Jaap Buitendijk/MCTShailene Woodley (left) and Theo James star in Divergent.DEAR ABBY: I am wondering why pregnant women these days dont wear smocks like we all wore years ago. While I do think pregnant women are attractive, I really dont want to see their swollen bellies. Wouldnt it be better to just imagine what is under that smock or long skirt? Does anyone agree with me? DOROTHY IN WASHINGTONDEAR DOROTHY: Some readers may agree, but Im pretty sure most of them wont. You are hark ing back to the days when people were embarrassed about the subject of sex, and used euphemisms like in a family way or a bun in the oven to de scribe pregnancy. Women today are proud to show off their silhouettes.While this may seem to be somewhat in your face, I think its healthi er than pretending theres nothing going on when the expectant mother is in her seventh month and its obvious there is. DEAR ABBY: Im 21 and a college student. My mother recently came to visit me and took my boy friend and me out to dinner. After we were through eating, we sat across the table from my mother and engaged in post-dinner chatter. I draped my arm around his neck and began playing with his ear. It was absent-minded, and I thought nothing of it, but my mother stared from across the table shocked. She later told me that ear fondling is not appro priate in public. I was taken aback. Isnt it OK to play with my boyfriends ear in public? Does it make people around us uncomfortable? EAR SNUGGLES IN VERMONTDEAR EAR SNUGGLES: Playing with someones ear could be considered foreplay, and seeing it cer tainly made your mother uncomfortable. Perhaps among your contemporaries it would be acceptable, but as a general rule, its better to keep intimate gestures of affection private. DEAR ABBY: I would like to offer a reminder so people wont have to experience what I am right now. Please take a few minutes to go through your wallet and make photocopies of everything in there. Put the list some where you can easily nd it. That way, if your wallet is lost or stolen, youll know what was in it. I did that years ago, but I didnt keep it current and now Im upset with myself. Some time over the weekend I misplaced my wallet. Luckily, I dont keep my ID and deb it cards there, so at least they are safe. But because I use my wallet so seldom, Im unsure what was in there. If people make copies of everything in their wallets, it will be easier to report and replace the things should the need arise. I am so bummed out right now. While I lost only $30, I lost a treasured photo graph of my daughter, and I cant remember what other cards may have been in there. FUMING IN LUTZDEAR FUMING: I know from personal experience how frustrating losing a wallet can be, so thank you for wanting to remind readers how important it is to copy documents or credit cards they car ry with them. It takes only a few minutes, and the peace of mind it brings is worth the effort.Maternity fashions reflect pride in pregnancyDivergent doesnt diverge from the pack quite enough MOVIE REVIEW CRI TICS RA TING: DEAR A BB YJeanne Phillips M C Y K

B4 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, March 21, 2014 www.newssun.com BY STEVE MILLER Associated PressTALLAHASSEE (AP) The public could read anony mously posted reviews and complaints of assisted-living facilities and owners of such facilities would face higher nes for repeated serious violations under a measure passed unanimously by the Senate on Tuesday. Senate Bill 248 also requires increased licensing for homes that handle mentally impaired residents and requires a rating system be in place for assistedliving facilities by March 2015. Whatever comfort we can give to families who are look ing for a home for a relative, we should give it, said state Sen. Eleanor Sobel, D-Hollywood. This is the third year in a row a measure aimed at enhancing rules for assisted-living facili ties has been introduced, Sobol pointed out. She said that by eliminating some of the smaller violations that can lead to expensive nes even though they dont endanger or discomfort a patient, we got these groups on board, in cluding the AARP and the Flori da Health Care Association. Those smaller violations include a facility worker assisting a resident with self-medication or treatment, such as measuring vital signs or checking blood-sugar levels. Under the new measure, a worker would be able to assist in those smaller tasks without fear of sanction. The public posting site would be part of a consumer guide page administered by the state that would also include infor mation on each licensed facility in the state, including its size, date of opening and violations. The comments section would be monitored, and employees of a facility would be prohibited from posting although facility management could respond to comments as part of the online conversation. The previous legislation wasnt quite clear enough, said Emmett Reed, executive direc tor of the Florida Health Care Association. The association had fought against the public comments page being part of the states website, arguing that the set ting provides an ofcialness to it, Robert Asztalos, who represented the health care association as the legislation was being developed, said last month. It should be part of a private page. Still, enough concessions to the supporters of the assistedliving facility industry have so far made the measure palat able. The good facilities want to see this kind of bill, Sobel said. They want the bad ones to be gotten rid of. There are 3,000 assisted-liv ing homes in Florida that provide intermediate care and provide limited supervision to 80,000 people. Lawmakers in recent years have sought to re duce the oversight of assisted-living facilities, although Gov. Rick Scott vetoed one of the most comprehensive measures reducing regulation of the homes in 2011.Community outreach events scheduledAce Homecare Community Outreach activities include: Monday 9 a.m., Rest Haven Assisted Living FAcility (Zolfo Springs), Music and Motion; 10:30 a.m., Chatham Point (Wauchula), health fair.

All sites are open to the public.HEALTHY LIVING Assisted-living facilities face new scrutiny MCTSenate Bill 248 requires a rating system be in place for assisted-living facilities by March 2015. During the Civil War, surgeons were judged on their ability to do speedy surgery. Anesthesia was several strong men hold ing the patient down. Paracelsus described the use of ether in animals in 1525, but the rst successful surgery using ether in a human was not done until 1846 in Boston. Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, was rst used in dental surgery in 1844. Both anesthetics were slow to be widely adopted because of safety issues. There was no way to monitor how much anesthetic the patient was getting. The rst EKG machines were not invented until 1903. Gases with fewer side effects, such as halothane, were not introduced until the 1950s. Control of a patients air way using endotracheal tubes and safe IV uids are also mid-20th century inventions. Oximeters that can be placed on the nger to make sure that the patient is getting enough oxygen were not marketed until the 1970s. The rst local anesthetic was introduced in 1903, but it was not until 1932 that barbiturates were used for IV sedation. The new general anesthetics are safer, but they still have unpleasant side effects such as nausea and vomiting. With our aging population, there are increasing numbers of patients who are poor candidates for general an esthesia. Most upper extremity surgery can be done by injecting one or more main nerve trunks (regional anesthesia). For smaller sur geries, such as carpal tunnel, injecting the area of the incision is sufcient. Patients having this type of anesthesia have less risk and fewer side effects. A study from Columbia found that patients who had shoulder surgery with regional blocks had less post-op pain than those who had the same surgery with general anesthesia. Since local/regional with IV sedation is safe with much fewer side effects, why is Wide Awake Anes thesia the newest trend in hand surgery? It is more convenient for many patients. There is no need to take extra time off work for pre-op lab and clear ances. Patients who live alone are safer being at home alone for the rst 24 hours. There are no fasting requirements that make it safer for diabetic patients and more pleasant for those who get caffeine withdrawal headaches. Some surgeries, such as trigger nger releases, can be safely done in the ofce. In some areas, car pal tunnel surgeries are also being done outside the OR. There were only six infections in a series of 1,500 consecutive car pal tunnels done in Canada by surgeons using minimal drapes and wear ing only masks and ster ile gloves with their street clothes. There is less chance of wrong-side surgery in an a wake patient. In tendon surgery, the strength of the repair can be tested. This allows earlier mobilization and faster recovery. Patients who are not groggy from sedation remember post-op instructions better. There are also estimated savings of $300 to $600 per patient. What about those with a fear of needles? Either IV sedation or general anesthesia requires starting an IV with a much bigger needle than the tiny ones used to inject the local anesthesia. What about patient satisfaction? One hundred consecutive patients who had wide awake anesthesia were polled 91 percent said it was less painful than a visit to the dentist, 86 percent would prefer it for further sur gery and 90 percent would recommend it to a friend or family member. Next time you need hand surgery discuss Wide Awake Anesthesia with your surgeon, if you are a good candidate you will be pleasantly sur prised by the lack of pain, increased safety and convenience and cost savings.Dr. Diana D.

To his doctors surprise, he agreed to see an atheist with whom he had often debated. It was nice of you to allow me to see you, the atheist said, especially since youve refused to see even your closest friends. Oh, thats all right, the preacher replied with a weak smile. I have no doubt Ill see my friends in Heaven, but this may be my last chance to see you! One topic about which some do not like to talk is the judgment. In other words, they do not like to talk about that day when we will all come before the throne of God to be judged based upon our adherence to the Bibles instructions. Whether we like or dislike the sub ject, one thing is sure: The judgment is coming! Hebrews 9:27 teaches that man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment. That simply means that after we die (unless Christ re turns rst), we will face a time of sentencing for the actions we chose to take while living in this world. Either we will spend eter nity in Heaven, or we will spend it in everlasting punishment. So, how do we nd favor in the eyes of the Judge? First, we must enter into a relationship with God by becoming one of His chil dren. Only those who follow Gods biblical plan of salvation, which results in immersion into Christ (Romans 6:3, 4) for the forgiveness of sins (Acts 2:38; 22:16), even have the hope of eternal life. But, that alone is not enough! God then instructs us in His word to live faithful lives in service to Him in order to receive our heavenly reward. That instruction is given in Revelation 2:10. It reads, ... Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life. Judgment will most cer tainly happen. There is no doubt about it. The only question is this: After the judgment, where will you nd yourself? If you do not know or if you do not like your answer, take comfort. There is still time to make the necessary changes in your life, as long as you make them right away. Remember, the consequences of how we live our lives are too eternal to take the judgment lightly. Make sure you are on Heavens side today.Kevins Komments is written by Kevin Patterson and presented by Sebring Parkway church of Christ, 3800 Sebring Parkway.

Meetings will be at 6 p.m. daily and 9 and 10:15 a.m. Sunday. Mothersheads ministry began at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Toledo where he served as Pastor of Evangelism for 12 years. During that time, hundreds of people were equipped through the ministry he calls Balanced Evangelism. Using these prin ciples, he gave dy namic leadership to the Santa Clarita (Ca lif.) Baptist Church over the next 25 years. Balanced Evangelism is now his full-time itiner ant ministry and will be the focus of these confer ence sessions. The Maranatha congregation extends a cordial welcome to friends from the community to share in this opportunity. The church is in Maranatha Village off Arbuckle Creek Road, two miles east of State Road 17 North in Sebring.

The church es of Highlands County are working together, with the local members of the Eleventh Hour Workers missionary group a multinational mission team to plan and coordinate the lo cal arrangements for the crusade. The site for the crusade is the corner of U.S. 27 North and Valerie Boulevard in Sebring (across from Flor ida Hospital Heartland Division). The crusade services will be translated into Spanish and possibly other languages, as needed. Ricker is a pastor in the Atlanta area. He has held numerous crusades in India and in Central and South America, es pecially following disasters in various parts of the world. However, this is the rst time the evangelist has held a crusade in this country. Other groups who have been involved locally are the Jericho Prayer Team, a non-denominational group of pastors, community leaders and concerned citizens that meet weekly to inter cede in prayer for a vecounty region. The Jericho Prayer Team has also prayer-walked the site on several occasions. Leadership positions for the crusade have also been lled with ministers and pastors from the various Highlands County ministerial associations (Avon Park, Sebring, and Lake Placid). The crusade plans have been shared monthly with the various groups for prayer and sharing with their congregations in the county. For more information, call 273-5450 (English) or 451-6712 (Spanish).Christs Heart for the H eartland begins March 25 BY MARK V A N VEENSpecial to the News-SunSEBRING On Sunday, March 30 there will be a show of unity of the Body of Christ in Sebring. Crossroads Fellowship and Wings of Faith will join Grace Bible for the 11 a.m. service. The Wings of Faith Worship team will provide the Praise and Worship. When Jesus prayed to The Father up in Heav en, it was a prophetic promise. In John 17:2223 He prayed in the Spir it: And the glory which You gave Me I have giv en them (the disciples, the faithful), that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved me (NKJV). This speaks of unity through love, the promise of the oneness with God, The Father through His Son Jesus Christ in the Holy Spirit. The principle thing be ing that there should be unity within the body of Christ. Now I plead with you, brethren, wrote Paul in 1 Corinthians 1:10, directing the body of Christ, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. In Hebrews 10:24-25 he addresses the body of Christ with the purpose of unity with: And let us consider one anoth er in order to stir up love and good works, not for saking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching. Whenever the body of Christ gathers it is a joy ous occasion as this is certain to be. Grace Bible is at 4453 Thunderbird Road. All are welcome to attend.Groups joining for service M C Y K

www.newssun.comFriday, March 21, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B9 RELIGION Information abounds on the teachings of various denominations regarding the practice of infant baptism pros and cons! Perhaps a good summary of the infant baptism mindset is expressed in The Heidelberg Catechism: Infants as well as adults are in Gods cove nant and are His people. They, no less than adults, are promised the for giveness of sin through Christs blood and the Holy Spirit who produces faith. Therefore, by baptism, the mark of the covenant, infants should be received into the Christian church and should be distinguished from the children of unbelievers. This was done in the Old Testament by circumcision, which was replaced in the New Testament by bap tism. This 1563 AD manmade document must be examined in light of the inspired Word of God. Since infant baptism is not a New Testament doctrine or example, it is important to understand why and how this came to be accepted by so many churches established by men and women. Sandra DeGidio, O.S.M. in an ar ticle, The Sacrament of Baptism, observed, In the Church of the rst three centuries adult Baptism was the norm. and Soon adult Baptisms declined, infant Baptism became the norm and the process and theology of Chris tian initiation of adults as practiced in the early Church became a lost art. According to various historical sources, the ear liest reference to infant baptism was by Irenaeus (AD 130-202) in his work Against Heresies. Origen (185-254) and Tertullian (155-230) also mention infant baptism as traditional and customary. Following the example of the Bereans in Acts 17:11, (they received the word with all readiness and searched the Scrip tures daily) we will consider the bases offered to justify infant baptism. Many people accept various doctrines never questioning their origin or validity in light of Truth. The rst step would be to identify the meaning of sin a missing of the mark; an act of disobedience to divine law (Vines Complete Expository Dictionary). Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin (James 4:17). There must also be a clear understanding between the guilt of sin and consequences of sin. The guilt of sin is personal, whereas the consequences of personal sins may affect others also physically, i.e. drugs, AIDS, DUI, etc. The person who sins will die. The son will not bear the punishment for the fathers iniquity, nor will the father bear the pun ishment for the sons iniquity; the righteousness of the righteous will be upon himself, and the wickedness of the wicked will be upon himself (Ezekiel 18:20). The guilt of sin is not something you inher it, but something you do. One of the often used reasons for infant baptism is the references to household conversions/baptisms such as Lydia and the jailor (Acts 16:13-15; 25-34). First, these conversions were from the orders given by Jesus in Matthew 28:18-20 and Mark 16:15,16. This Divine plan included baptism proceeded by preaching and believing the gospel. There are many assump tions in this reasoning for infant baptism: husband/ wife; children; infant children. None of these are stated in the households mentioned. Another effort to justify infant baptism as Biblical is the claim that such is the same as circumcision under the Old Law. Colos sians 2:11,12 is claimed to teach infant baptism based on this premise. The context is speaking of those who were dead in transgressions and forgiven of the same. If this is teaching that infant baptism is parallel to circumcision, then only male babies would be baptized and only on the eight day after birth. (Genesis 17:12; John 7:22,23) Galatians is an inspired letter straight to the point: You have become es tranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justied by law; you have fallen from grace (Galatians 5:4). In this pointed message, Paul was conscious of his responsibility as a gospel preacher; For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ and Have I there fore become your enemy because I tell you the truth? (Galatians 1:10; 4:16). Such must be the mindset of every teacher/ preacher of the gospel of Christ!

One of the often used reasons for infant baptism is the references to household conversions/baptisms such as Lydia and the jailor (Acts 16:13-15; 25-34). First, these conversions were from the orders given by Jesus in Matthew 28:18-20 and Mark 16:15,16. This Divine plan included baptism proceeded by preaching and believing the gospel. There are many assump tions in this reasoning for infant baptism: husband/ wife; children; infant children. None of these are stated in the households mentioned. Another effort to justify infant baptism as Biblical is the claim that such is the same as circumcision under the Old Law. Colos sians 2:11,12 is claimed to teach infant baptism based on this premise. The context is speaking of those who were dead in transgressions and forgiven of the same. If this is teaching that infant baptism is parallel to circumcision, then only male babies would be baptized and only on the eight day after birth. (Genesis 17:12; John 7:22,23) Galatians is an inspired letter straight to the point: You have become es tranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justied by law; you have fallen from grace (Galatians 5:4). In this pointed message, Paul was conscious of his responsibility as a gospel preacher; For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ and Have I there fore become your enemy because I tell you the truth? (Galatians 1:10; 4:16). Such must be the mindset of every teacher/ preacher of the gospel of Christ!

The 81-year-old Mussel mans felony hearing subsequently was continued over to April 15.

They werent the only ones. Dozens of concerned citi zens like the Mottasheds have found themselves in a predica ment after the topic of zoning changes to a proposed apart ment complex, which would lie to the east of the property line of the DeSoto Road park between the park and the Sebring Parkway was tabled to a late May meeting. The meeting isnt in the plans for the Mottasheds. They, like many of the parks residents, split their time be tween Sebring and their north ern homes. They will be in Canada when the council dis cusses the issue again on May 20. Tuesdays heated discussion ended in a 4-1 vote to table the item until then in order for the developers to bring back more specic plans to the council. Realtor and contractor Mark Gose, along with Rick Whid den, requested a change in the zoning to satisfy changes in the development agreement. The land use, wed like it changed from medium density to high density and the zoning from planned development (PD) to residential 3 (R3PD), said Whidden, who also talked about changing the setbacks for the property. According to Whidden, the density would go from 118 to 243 units total in the complex, which equates to 24.5 units per acre. The R3PD zoning allows up to 40 units per acre. Gose said that the proj ect would only be nancially smart if the number of units per acre allowed is increased. If we have to drop back to 12 units per acre, we cant do it. Its not worth it. If we are talking about 12 units, then it aint happening, Gose said. Gose also explained to coun cil that artist renderings or a visual design concept was not available due to the costs and the zoning uncertainty. Im not going to go out and spend the money on draw ings if the zoning isnt what we Katara Simmons/News-SunFrancis 2 Mobile Home Park resident George Mottashed points to a parcel of land where developers want to build an upscale apartment complex in Sebring.

With this theme in mind, the community is invited to at tend the annual event, which will be held April 4 at the Lake Plac id High School football eld on Dal Hall Boulevard beginning at 6 p.m. There is no admission charge, and there will be food, games, entertainment, and lots of ways to learn about nishing the ght against cancer. All cancer survivors in the com munity are invited to not only attend, but also be recognized several times during the evening. Survivors and their caregivers can begin registering at 5 p.m., and af ter the opening ceremonies and their initial walk around the track, they will be treated to a compli mentary dinner with entertainment and prizes. As the sun goes down, there will be a very mov ing luminaria ceremony during which the lights will be off so ev eryone can reect on the people commemorated on the glowing bags around the track. These bags represent people who have won, lost, or are still ghting their bat tles with cancer. Cancer remains a disease that affects many families, and al though research has improved the outcomes of many diagnoses, there is still work to do to nish this ght. The Lake Placid Relay For Life event this year will have numerous teams on the eld who have been fundraising for several months to help support research and also to provide help to those facing cancer in our community. At a recent team captains meet ing, everyone took to the oor to learn the Fight Back dance, and hopefully the community will come out and join in this impor tant effort that is also fun for everyone. Go to You Tube and look for the ght back dance to learn the easy routine.

A4 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, March 21, 2014 www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927Romona Washington Publisher publisher@newssun.com Scott Dressel Editor editor@newssun.com VIEWPOINTS ANOTHER VIEW Alzheimers disease and other de mentias not only destroy the lives of those who suffer from them but take a devastating toll on family care givers and on those who must pay the cost of care. An estimated 5 million people in the United States suffer from Alzheimers. But that number will increase exponen tially in the years ahead because of what Robin Barr, a senior ofcial at the Na tional Institute on Aging, calls an aging tsunami. A highly cited published re search analysis estimates that the num ber of people with Alzheimers around the world will jump from 36 million to day to 115 million by 2050. A recent study in the journal Neurol ogy estimated that the Centers for Dis ease Control and Preventions gure on deaths attributable to Alzheimers in 2010 83,494 in the U.S. is a frac tion of the true number, which it esti mated at more than 500,000. Ofcials at the CDC admit that the agencys num ber is signicantly low. Just as alarming is this: A study by re searchers at Rand Corp. and other insti tutions calculated that the direct cost of care for people with Alzheimers and other dementia in 2010 was $109 bil lion. In comparison, health care costs for people with heart disease was $102 billion; for people with cancer, it was $77 billion. Yet cancer research will be allocated an estimated $5.4 billion this year in federal funds, and heart disease will get $1.2 billion while research on Alzheimers and other dementias comes in at only a fraction of that, at $666 million. Its time to substantially increase that budget. Theres no question that the federal government has focused more intense ly on research into Alzheimers and other types of dementia in the last few years. The National Alzheimers Proj ect Act, signed into law in 2011, set up a national plan to aggressively develop new treatments for these devastating diseases. Toward that end, research on Alzheimers and related dementias was boosted with an additional $100 mil lion in federal funds in the last year. But to effectively tackle this disease over the next decade, more funding is required. Research stands at a prom ising new threshold. As National Institutes of Health Director Francis Collins said in an appearance before a Senate subcommittee in February, research has shifted in recent years, from an emphasis on treatment of individuals with symptomatic disease to primary prevention among individuals at risk. More money can fund more clinical trials. And there are signicant num bers of worthy grant applications at the National Institute on Aging that have not yet been funded, according to Barr. The U.S. must do what it can to ght this hideous disease before it consumes millions more people and billions more dollars.An editorial from the Los Angeles Times.We cant afford not to spend more on Alzheimers During this beautiful month of March there are many different holidays we observe; from the spiritual ity of Ash Wednesday to the frivolity of Saint Patricks Day. However, there is a par ticular holiday that I wasnt aware of until recently: In ternational Womans Day. While there are no re ligious ties or an ancient tale that follows this holi day, there is a commendable evolution and connotation to it. It is a time that people, not just women, should rejoice this well bod ing time to give thanks to women. We are not being commended because of our gender; rather for our do ings as women and the adversity we have overcome. Over the years, we have faced woes and struggles that are barely over yet. We are mothers, daugh ters, aunts, sisters, wives, queens, princesses, duch esses. What would the world be without women of the past, present or future? In this new age, we can see the equality of all people re gardless to what their gender maybe. As women, what denes us are our funda mental roles that we play, which are equally as vital as that of men. A great example: The No bel Peace Prize for physiology and medicine in 1962 was given to Watson and Crick, for new discov ery of the DNA double helix. In actuality, it was Rosalind Franklin, biophysicist, whom made the rst sev eral detections of the DNAs double helix and its proper ties, yet was never acknowledged formally due to a gender barrier at the time. As a female who can live in the United States, where I am free to pursue any choice my heart desires, be cause other women in the past have worked hard for the rights of women of the future, I feel as though it is almost obligatory to hon or that. An early feminist that I have always admired as an individual was Queen Elizabeth I. In a day and age when women were es pecially considered weak without their king, she proved that false, joining in matrimony with her coun try, rather than a man, saving Great Britain from may hem single handedly. That is a woman. What about Benazir Bhut to or Malala Yousafzai, feminists who spoke out against the Taliban and other un just treatments their government pursued? The gentle deeds of humanity of Mother Teresa, the soaring actions of Amelia Earhart, all the way to the ctional but absolutely sensational Rosie the Riveter, women through time have made a lasting impression on soci ety today. Even Sophocles acknowl edged the heroine of every woman in society in his play Antigone, centuries before women were recognized as individuals. Honestly, I could sit here ranting and raving about the signicance of femi nism, but what it all simmers down to is that Im proud to say I am part of woman-kind and I know women who have done valuable things and have contributed their life to make the world a better place. Though Internation al Womans Day is just one day, we can take pride in the women around us ev ery day.Gauri Persad is a Sebring High School student. The News-Sun encourages local students to make their opinions heard.Women should be proud every day GUEST COLUMNGauri Persad Talk about March Madness. The 31st is the deadline for signing up for Obam aCare, which has made the buying and selling of health insurance one of the most complicated, deceptive di sasters in the history of Big Government. The president could al ways whip out his Hugo Chavez pen again at the last minute and re-write anoth er rotten plank of his Affordable Care Act. But as it stands now, peo ple will have to enroll in the ACA by the end of this month or most of them will not be eligible to get gov ernment insurance until January of 2015. There are exemptions, as usual. If you experience a qualifying event a new baby, a divorce, a job loss youll be able to sign up whenever you want. (Turn to Page 32,364 of your copy of the ACA for details.) If you fail to enroll by the 31st, youll be subjected to a little known provision of the ACA, Section 1984, I think it is, that says anyone who doesnt enroll by March 31 will be rounded up, deport ed to Syria or shot. OK, Im kidding. The rea son youve never heard of that section was because I just made it up. But there is a provision of the ACA that most people have probably never heard of that is just as unbeliev able. Its Section 1342 Es tablishment of risk corridors for plans in individual and small group markets. Translated from govern mentese, Section 1342 is designed to bail out the big insurance companies when they lose billions of dollars because they have to pro vide health insurance they cant afford to provide. In order to make Obam aCare work (by suckering millions of gullible Amer icans into thinking it was free or cheap), the White House and Democrats in Congress told insurance companies they had to offer affordable policies. But the insurance compa nies balked. They knew in advance they couldnt pos sibly be able to offer ObamaCares Cadillac policies at such low-low prices without soon incurring huge-huge losses. No problemo, the gener ous ObamaCare-givers said to the insurance companies. Well bury this little risk corridor mumbo jumbo Section 1342 in the act somewhere. Congress wont nd it for years. It guaran tees that the federal government will cover your ObamaCare losses through 2016. Just dont blab about it, please, because its kind of embarrassing for us pro gressives to be seen subsidizing Big Health Insur ance. It turns out that behind all the high-minded B.S. about providing every Ameri can with affordable healthcare, ObamaCare is simply another corporate welfare project. Only this time its for the benet of health insurance companies. Section 1342 reminds me of those sweet deals the big New York nancial compa nies got when they and their pals in Congress teamed up to make the economy col lapse in 2007-2008. Those too-big-to-fail banks and dont forget GM got their federal-tax payer bailouts at the back end. Under Obama, the bailouts for insurance com panies come at the front end. We all remember those promises from Washington that it will never happen again. Well, its going to in a very big way. Section 1342 ultimately will cost American taxpayers tens of billions. Im sorry to say most Americans wont even no tice this latest example of crony capitalism. Theyll be too busy guring out how or where to get the level of health care coverage they want or need. Former New York State Lt. Gov. Betsy McCaughey said in the New York Post that the 1342 bailout section is meant to hide the full fail ure of the presidents signature health law until after the next presidential elec tion. Shes right. But its too late for Obama now. Because of the mess hes made of healthcare reform, Demo crats will be swept away by a Republican wave this No vember and, lets pray, again in 2016. By then, if Republicans dont blow it, ObamaCare will be DOA and Section 1342 will be just another lib eral nightmare, not a reality.Michael Reagan is the son of President Ronald Reagan, a political consultant, and the author of The New Reagan Revolution (St. Martins Press).

Hensley has been a smiling face to residents and visitors for over three decades. Hensley, whose nal day as mayor will be March 31, said that he was humbled and overwhelmed during his last council meeting as mayor Tuesday. Our city staff and people that run our departments have made this city look good, they really do. Its been an honor working with all of you, Hensley said.Samantha Gholar/News SunJohn Clark (right) smiles as he accepts a proclamation from Sebring Mayor George Hensley honoring his more than 10 years on the Sebring City Council. Clarks nal city council meeting was Tuesday evening as his term on the council will expire, along with fellow councilmen Andrew Fells, on March 31. Clark was commended for his hard work and dedication to the citys taxpayers and to the city itself. Samantha Gholar/News SunSebring City Council President Andrew Fells accepts a proclamation in his honor from Mayor George Hensley Tuesday evening during the city council meeting. Tuesday marked Fells nal night on the Sebring council after completing one term as a council member. Fells said that his time on the council was a privilege and a great experience and thanked all those who supported him during his election campaign and helped to get him into public ofce. I havent met one city employee I didnt like or that wasnt kind and courteous to me. Its been a huge privilege to work with all of you, Fells said.FINAL MEETING FOR HENSLEY, CLARK AND FELLS I was spending so much time trying to help my home town, Woods said. His mother taught in the Polk County School Dis trict and he volunteered with schools there, before volunteering as much as 25-35 hours per week in Highlands County. He sees Highlands as unique. There is a balance be tween school excellence and compassion for stu dents. Ive seen school administrators go way out of the way to meet the needs of students and (their) families, even with a large high school of 1,500 stu dents. To see that makes me proud, Woods said. He likes what he sees and wants to expand on it. He also has no intention of stepping down or stepping back from his work as a pastor or coach, although he may lead a little less on the gridiron if elected, he said. Woods said he would love to see the members of the county take an equal interest in all three can didates so they can learn their platforms and agen das. Its easy to pick a favor ite and ride that wave, Woods said. Its our re sponsibility to learn as much as we can and pro tect the value of our school system. He also said he wants to see everyone get out and vote. Woods is running against Hutchinson, a native of Avon Park and Sebring resident who taught in all of the district schools, except Memorial Elementary School, from 2005-2008, and was in the Florida Legislature in 2010-2011. Hutchinson recently told the school board that they lost a great local support er when Tuck left. He also said he would like to show people the poor condition of local schools when dis trict ofcials begin campaigning for a half-cent sales tax. Culverhouse, a lifelong citizen of Highlands Coun ty for 33 years, has been married 11 years to Ash ley a district teacher and they have two chil dren, ages 11 and 6. They have attended Grace Bi ble Church, where Woods is now pastor, for the last eight years. Culverhouse has volunteered with the school district through the Parent Teacher Orga nization, School Advisory Council, and District School Advisory Council. Culverhouse has also served 11 years as an Avon Park city reghter and is now ofce manager for a local law ofce. Of the three, Culver house is the only one who has raised money for his campaign so far, according to campaign treasurers re ports on the Supervisor of Elections website at www. votehighlands.gov. He has $2,475 in contributions as of Feb. 28 all mone tary contributions with $225.98 in expenditures. Tuck, who had planned to run for re-election, had already received $1,550 in cash contributions and $14.97 in in-kind contri butions, and had spent $733.69 by December 2013, according to the Su pervisor of Elections website.

However, Tower said that the change comes as a result of surveys done by FDOT engineers. We had told folks that when the construction project was completed that we would do a speed study. That is not uncom mon for us, she said. Tower said that many times after a highway con struction project is done, engineers look at the sit uation to see how trafc patterns develop in response to the new driving conditions. We go out in the eld and literally measure traf c speeds. The engineers want to see at what speeds drivers are traveling, she said. That is then converted into what engineers de ne as the 85th percentile, which is approximately the level at which most drivers are traveling. Those numbers are then plugged into the road ways design standards to come up with a reason able speed limit. Although there had been loud complaints about speed limit enforce ment and charges of a speed trap in the area, Tower said the FDOTs g ures did not come from citations. Actually, in this case, the speed limits as post ed are a bit above those the design would call for, Tower said. But we recog nize that given the nature of the roadway and the way that drivers are using it that 60 mph is a reason able speed for that segment of roadway.

Should they determine that Musselman is incompetent, the proceedings could grind to a halt Principals in the case indicate there probably be two reports, one arranged by the prosecution and the other by the de fense. Questions that remain to be an swered are whether Musselman was competent in January at the time she received instruction from Highlands County Cir cuit Court Judge Anthony Rittenour, and whether she currently is competent to stand trial.

Funeral Arrangements entrusted to: Stephenson-Nelson Funer al Home, Avon Park stephensonnelsonfh.com PALMER OBITUARIES BY ERIC PERAThe LedgerLAKELAND Robert Butler, the celebrated painter of vivid depictions of Florida wildlife, died early Wednesday morning from complications relat ed to a 30-year history of diabetes. He was 70. Butlers early career be gan in a group of black landscape artists known as The Highwaymen. Butlers wife of 50 years, Dorothy, said her husband had been hospitalized in Bartow for the past week, and had been moved to a Lakeland nursing home where he was to begin therapy to recover from the effects of a stroke. She learned early Wednesday morning that hed passed. I didnt expect it to be so soon, she said from her Lakeland home. He meant the world to me. Hes always been very lov ing and he loved his kids. Hes the only man in my whole life. Butler also leaves be hind nine children. Friends, fellow artists and art dealers said Butler was a gifted, self-taught talent who often went out of his way to guide and nurture anyone wishing to learn his craft. He was just a great, fun guy; he could be a friend to anybody, said Levy Harrison, a Lakeland tire dealer and artist who of ten hosted painting workshops led by Butler. The two collaborated on a painting of Florida pine woods that hangs in Levys shop on South Florida Av enue. I think I gave him a set of tires for it, Harrison said. He did a different style than the other High waymen. He was right up there with the better Flori da artists. Rick Powers, a founding artist of the Arts Ensem ble Education Foundation and Healing Arts Center in Winter Haven, became his student when the two met in 1989 at one of Levys workshops. We struck up a friend ship right off the bat, he said. I begged him for private lessons and he said, I dont do that. Still, Powers said, his mentor spent hours over the years helping him hone his craft. He taught me what I know. He was always trying to get my speed up. He was very giv ing of his time and talents. Born in the small, south Georgia town of Baxley, Butler moved at the age of 4 to Okeechobee, where his mother worked sev eral menial jobs, including picking tomatoes and serving in a restaurant. Author Catherine N. Henns of Jacksonville wrote in her book: The Journey of the Highway men, that Butler worked as a hospital orderly be fore painting in earnest in 1968. His death leaves just 17 of the original 26 High waymen who gained fame for their ability to swift ly paint scenes depicting Floridas palm-strewn shorelines, bayous and swamps. Throughout the 1960s and 1970s they peddled their works in and around Fort Pierce, where the group of mostly teenagers found a mentor in land scape artist A.E. Bean Backus. In 1994, curator Jim Fitch of Sebring gave cre dence to the groups growing body of work, coining the name The Highway men and introducing their paintings to the up per echelons of Floridas arts scene. Butler stood out as one of the groups most talent ed artists, drawing in great detail the backwoods hed grown up in, said How ard Brassner, an art dealer and gallery owner in Lake Worth. Robert Butler was one of the few of them that re ally transcended the Highwaymen movement, he said. He was a ne, ne nature artist. More than any other in his group, Butler painted in painstaking detail us ing more natural colors and light, Brassner said. He wasnt painting one of those fast, simple pictures that could be done in 40 minutes. He would do a eld of grass and thered be thousands of individu al blades. Dorothy Butler said her husband had type 2 dia betes for the past 30 years, but the disease worsened over the past month or so, requiring treatment with insulin. Prior to his health failing, he looked forward to continuing his art.Famed Highwayman painter Butler dies at 70 Rick Runion/The Ledger (2008)Robert Butler, a Florida wildlife artist, talks about his paintings that were destroyed in a 2008 re at the Artists Gallery in downtown Lakeland. Butler, whose early career started in a group of artists dubbed The Highwaymen, died Wednesday.services are 11 a.m. Saturday at Avon Park Lakes Baptist Church, with Rev. George Hall ofciating. Dorothy Allen, gener al manager of Palmer Ace Hardware, said Palmer hired her 20 years ago, the same day she arrived in Highlands County as a di vorced mother of three. Palmer always greeted her with Good morning, Sun shine! whether she felt cheery or not. We loved him like a dad, she said through tears. We felt kind of like part of the family. John Barben of Rob ert J. Barben Inc. in Avon Park practically was family, growing up with Palmers son, Mark. Their fathers, at that time, worked long, hard days trying to make a go of it, Barben said. Allen said Palmers car ing attitude kept turnover low. He was just the best boss ever, Allen said. A hard worker, dedicated and intelligent. And what a memory. He knew where everything was. Palmer had worked at the store when it was his parents grocery. Barben said when Palmer set up an electrical service busi ness next door, his workers stayed in a boarding house that is now the equipment rental business. He trained a lot of young guys, guys who had fallen on hard times. Rob ert would give them a chance, Barben said. When Palmers grand son, Bobby, served in Chile as a missionary and came back to study medicine, Palmer said it was time to give back a bit more, Bar ben said. With that generation, (you) dont know what they did, Barben said. They didnt do it for a pat on the back. They did it because it was the right thing to do. PALMER FROM PAGE A1 M C Y K

www.newssun.comFriday, March 21, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A7 need, Gose said Tuesday evening. This apartment complex will be a walkup complex. Its going to be like everything you see in Orlando or Tam pa. I wasnt expecting this much push back on it. The push back came from both council mem bers and Francis 2 residents Tuesday. These development agreements come out to be a big joke because weve never not modied them, said Councilman John Clark during Tues days meeting. Trafc is the rst issue, compati bility is the second. Youre talking about a retirement community and this place is going in the other di rection. Put yourself in the shadow of a three-sto ry building, youd feel upset too. Its just too many units stuffed into that nine-acre property there, Mayor George Hensley said. Council president An drew Fells said that an apartment complex is much needed in the city of Sebring. This is progress. When the young people, like myself, go off to college and want to come back theres no where for them to stay. I would challenge all of you to go out and nd a rental in Sebring. There arent any. Fortu nately for me, when I nished college I was able to come back and purchase a home. That option isnt available for everyone. The younger genera tion has to have somewhere to live that they can afford, otherwise they wont be coming back, Fells said. Thursday morning, the Mottasheds were out and about enjoying the rst day of spring and were very vocal about their concerns. The city deserves better than low-income hous ing (and) this is what this is going to be. Theyre say ing upscale, but what doctor or nurse do you know is going to live in a tiny 500-square-foot apart ment? George Mottashed asked. What bothers me the most is that with one stroke of a pen you can eliminate years worth of work. The planning and zoning make these or dinances and rules and someone can just come in and change it. None of this sounds right. They havent done any work. Theyve already changed the ordinance for the con tractors once. When is the city going to make them do any work? Gose said on Thursday that the plan for devel opment currently is two buildings with a total of 48 units. The units would be of varying sizes, rang ing from efciencies to three bedrooms. A club house, pool and sports ar eas would also be built at the start of the project. Though a development agreement is already in the hands of the city attor ney and contractors, Gose said that the 130 acres is still up for sale. Its not listed on the market, but it is for sale. If someone wants to come in and buy it they can, Gose said. The proposed apart ments would sit right in front ofthe home of Ruth Allen, whose family has owned property in Francis 2 for 30 years. You cant stop progress. Im not saying I want to, I dont think anyone here wants that, but this is a re tirement village and we want to keep it that way. Theyre going to stop the sky for us. I have to come out and look at these three-story buildings, how will I see the sun? This is not a ne-tuned situa tion, Allen said. The compatability is sue is critical, said Jean Mottashed. Sebring should be a shining model of good government and good planning. There are really no guarantees here. They may not build these lovely, upscale places like they say, they may not be able to get doctors and nurses in here. The only thing that is guaranteed is that the city is going to make a deci sion to change or not to change (the zoning) and a lot of us wont be here.Samantha Gholar can be reached at samantha.gholar@newssun. com or 385-6155 ext: 526.

M C Y K A8 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, March 21, 2014 www.newssun.com SPORTS For many of you, the names Harry and Char lie dont mean anything, but for those of us who are members of the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society (B.A.S.S.), weve spent many, many hours reading and laughing along-with the hapless shermen featured for many years in this monthly shing magazine. Contributing editor, Don Wirth has been writing about their shing antics for over three decades, and like many shermen, I assumed they were ctional char acters. That was before I met Steve Dubois and Joe Kozic. If there was ever a Harry and Charlie its got to be these two guys. Like Abbott and Costello, or Lewis and Martin, these two guys put new meaning into the phrase fun shing. Joe is the real funny man, while Steve is more the straight man, or often the foil. Get the two of them together, and its like going to a comedy club. Joe is almost a oneman show, throwing out zingers and one-liners, but the real laughs come when Steves the target. Saturday, they proved theyre not only funny, but that they can catch sh! Winning the Friends of Istokpoga BIG BASS tournament was Joe Kozic with a beautiful 5.82 pound bass. Just barely out-done by his partner, Steve Dubois took second place with a hefty 5.72 pounder. In between all the joking around at the weighin, Joe indicated that there were plenty more where these two sh came from. We probably had 30 pounds of bass with our ve biggest sh, Joe recalled. And it was pretty cool to be letting ve pounders go. With a wry smile, Steve agreed. We caught all our sh in a pretty small area, with boats on both sides of us, and they couldnt get a hit he recalled. It was driving them nuts seeing us catch all these sh. Ive known Steve for a number of years, but I only met Joe months ago after I opened REDS. When the two of them arent shing, youll usually nd them in the store joking around and having fun. Neither is a stranger to the winners circle and both are strong competitors, but they truly put the word fun into shing! Ive shed tournaments since 1970 and most of the guys who sh competitively are quiet, reserved and almost secretive. Not Joe and Steve. Get in a tournament with the two of them and they never stop talking, laughing and having a good time. We could all learn a thing or two from these guys. Sure, its nice to win, but isnt the whole point to have fun? Although we didnt have a lot of lead time setting up the tournament, 19 people signed up for the event, and 15 of them became new members of The Friends of Istokpoga. Third place went to Geoff Balog with a nice 5.32 pound bass, followed by Tom Tarasoff, with another good sh at 5.16, and Mark Beaver, with a 4.41 and JD Parker with a 3.82. It was a fun event and everyone who participated had a good time. Thanks to Gary Albin and Trails End for hosting the event, as well as the FOI volunteers.

First, the Michigan native and devout Tigers and Red Wings fan graduated from high school. Then he got drafted twice. The rst drafting was by the Chicago White Sox. The slick-elding, hardhitting second baseman had patterned his game after Tigers great Charlie Gehringer. The White Sox envisioned John as a player for their future. However, the second drafting came from Uncle Sam and trumped the rst. With World War II waging on two fronts, John bypassed his chance at baseball stardom and enlisted in the Navy. He took part in the invasions of Leyte Gulf and Okinawa and received battle citations for his valor. Returning to the States in 1946, John decided to forego his baseball dreams and go to work in the auto supply business near Detroit. He was a UAW local president for 28 years.

www.newssun.comFriday, March 21, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B9 RELIGION Information abounds on the teachings of various denominations regarding the practice of infant bap tism pros and cons! Perhaps a good sum mary of the infant baptism mindset is expressed in The Heidelberg Cate chism: Infants as well as adults are in Gods cove nant and are His people. They, no less than adults, are promised the for giveness of sin through Christs blood and the Holy Spirit who produces faith. Therefore, by bap tism, the mark of the covenant, infants should be received into the Christian church and should be dis tinguished from the children of unbelievers. This was done in the Old Tes tament by circumcision, which was replaced in the New Testament by bap tism. This 1563 AD manmade document must be examined in light of the inspired Word of God. Since infant baptism is not a New Testament doc trine or example, it is important to understand why and how this came to be accepted by so many churches established by men and women. Sandra DeGidio, O.S.M. in an ar ticle, The Sacrament of Baptism, observed, In the Church of the rst three centuries adult Baptism was the norm. and Soon adult Baptisms declined, infant Baptism became the norm and the process and theology of Chris tian initiation of adults as practiced in the early Church became a lost art. According to various historical sources, the ear liest reference to infant baptism was by Irenaeus (AD 130-202) in his work Against Heresies. Origen (185-254) and Tertullian (155-230) also mention in fant baptism as traditional and customary. Following the exam ple of the Bereans in Acts 17:11, (they received the word with all readiness and searched the Scrip tures daily) we will consider the bases offered to justify infant baptism. Many people accept vari ous doctrines never questioning their origin or validity in light of Truth. The rst step would be to identify the mean ing of sin a missing of the mark; an act of dis obedience to divine law (Vines Complete Exposi tory Dictionary). Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin (James 4:17). There must also be a clear understanding be tween the guilt of sin and consequences of sin. The guilt of sin is personal, whereas the consequenc es of personal sins may affect others also physically, i.e. drugs, AIDS, DUI, etc. The person who sins will die. The son will not bear the punishment for the fathers iniquity, nor will the father bear the pun ishment for the sons iniquity; the righteousness of the righteous will be upon himself, and the wicked ness of the wicked will be upon himself (Ezekiel 18:20). The guilt of sin is not something you inher it, but something you do. One of the often used reasons for infant baptism is the references to house hold conversions/baptisms such as Lydia and the jailor (Acts 16:13-15; 25-34). First, these con versions were from the orders given by Jesus in Matthew 28:18-20 and Mark 16:15,16. This Divine plan included baptism proceeded by preaching and believing the gospel. There are many assump tions in this reasoning for infant baptism: husband/ wife; children; infant chil dren. None of these are stated in the households mentioned. Another effort to justify infant baptism as Biblical is the claim that such is the same as circumcision under the Old Law. Colos sians 2:11,12 is claimed to teach infant baptism based on this premise. The context is speaking of those who were dead in transgressions and forgiv en of the same. If this is teaching that infant bap tism is parallel to circumcision, then only male babies would be baptized and only on the eight day after birth. (Genesis 17:12; John 7:22,23) Galatians is an inspired letter straight to the point: You have become es tranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justi ed by law; you have fallen from grace (Galatians 5:4). In this pointed message, Paul was con scious of his responsibility as a gospel preacher; For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ and Have I there fore become your enemy because I tell you the truth? (Galatians 1:10; 4:16). Such must be the mindset of every teacher/ preacher of the gospel of Christ!

www.newssun.comFriday, March 21, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B3 HEALT H Y LIVING Dear Pharmacist: I had to get a colonoscopy last month, and fortunate ly, everything is OK but it made me worry about co lon cancer. My doctor recommended a stool softener and laxative for me if it gets bad. What else do you suggest for colon health? P.C., OcalaAnswer: Denitely clean yourself out. Im not rec ommending gastric lavage, Im thinking simple solutions like drinking more water, eating more ber and taking probiotics and enzymes. The following dietary supplements act like a sponge binding bile acids and toxins in your intes tine to form an insoluble complex that you excrete. Think of these as a rescue remedy, not for chron ic daily use because they will latch on to your med icine and supplements: Bentonite clay, activat ed charcoal and psyllium husk. Youd pick only one, not all. The bentonite and charcoal can be extreme ly constipating so be careful, and ask your doctor if theyre OK. This may sound weird but your colon is con nected to your head and your gut is often referred to as your second brain. Thats why avoiding vari ous food groups improves mood and migraines. Co lonics are an option. Gun shy about these? I dont blame you. Most co lonic practitioners use an intimidating specu lum, but the newer, thinner nozzles are more comfortable. Thats what Im told by my friend, Fran cis Gonzalez, ND, an IACT certied colon hy drotherapist instructor and founder of Fluid Wa ter Therapy in New York (www.uidwaterthera py.com). I-ACT stands for International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy. Colonics improve lower intestinal health, especial ly if you eat lots of dairy, meat, white our, pro cessed, rened foods, milk chocolate, coffee or alco hol. For some reason, after a while, these foods en crust the intestines with a sludge made up of thick mucus, fecal material, and other trapped debris. The sludge promotes the growth of pathogens add ing to the intestinal mess. If you have any chronic ill ness, I urge you to consider internal pollution, not just environmental pollu tion. Digestive enzymes and probiotics can help, and they are more effec tive after colonic therapy. Colonics (and gentle en emas) help remove toxins from your intestine, reduce bloating and re lieve constipation. Colonics help remove rotting material like meat that gets stuck in your intesti nal tract. Warming up to the idea? Be warned that many colonics are per formed by untrained per sonnel using unregulated, home-made systems re ferred to as Woods Gravity method. Dr. Gonzalez provided some bare mini mum criteria that your colon therapist should meet: Be certied and trained by the International As sociation of Colon Ther apists (IACT) and/or the National Board for Colon Hydrotherapy (NBCHT). Only utilize FDA-regis tered Class II medical devices to conduct the therapy. Only use disposable rec tal nozzles that have been sterilized. Use colon hydrothera py equipment installed with back-ow preven tion valves so that fecal matter from one patient cant contaminate an other (heaven forbid!). Can ensure that the water that is used to cleanse the patients in testinal tract is proper ly puried to eliminate any water-borne micro organisms.Suzy Cohen is a registered pharmacist and the author of The 24Hour Pharmacist and Real Solu tions.

Dont let them dene you. Dont let them put you into one of their neat little slots. Youre unique. And youre gonna show the world. You go, girl! So its no surprise that this is the message of Di vergent, the latest young adult blockbuster-in-wait ing. Its also no surprise that the emerging young star Shailene Woodley de livers a crucial dose of humility, sensitivity and intelligence in this show case role. And its no sur prise, either, that she generates nice chemistry with her rather absurdly goodlooking co-star, Theo James. What IS surprising is that with all these promis ing elements, Divergent, the rst of three install ments based on rst-time author Veronica Roths trilogy, ultimately feels so lackluster. For a lm predicated on the princi ple that being different or divergent is what makes you special, Diver gent just doesnt diverge enough from the pack. Not that this will hurt the lms chances at the box ofce. Like The Hun ger Games, the franchise to which it will unavoid ably be compared, Diver gent has a ready-made audience of fans just wait ing to ll those seats over 11 million books have been sold, after all. Those book fans will have a crucial head start. Divergent takes a good deal of time explaining plot mechanics, but If you already know whats hap pening, you can spend more time admiring, say, those cheekbones on James or his day-old, dystopian stubble. In a nutshell, Diver gent, directed by Neil Burger, takes place in a fu turistic Chicago, a bleak version indeed of the Windy City. Half of every building seems to be de stroyed, leaving hulking shells. Civilization is divid ed into ve factions, based on human virtues: Daunt less, Abnegation, Erudite, Amity, and Candor. Beatrice Prior (Woodley) is born into Abnegation. But at age 16, a citizen can choose their own faction, at the Choosing Ceremo ny. Right before, they take an aptitude test that tells them which faction they t best. Beatrices results are downright scary: She has not one virtue, but all of them. She is divergent which makes her dan gerous. To the distress of her parents (Ashley Judd and Tony Goldwyn), Beatrice opts to join Dauntless, the most courageous faction, but also the most reck less: Pierced and tattooed, they look like unusually t punk rockers. Soon shes in boot camp, jumping on and off trains (trains nev er seem to actually stop in this movie) and into pits, and ghting viciously in the ring, under the guid ance of the initially unfor giving Four (James), her trainer. Gradually, Bea trice shes renamed her self Tris becomes buff and strong. But will it be enough to survive? On top of all this, theres a political storm brew ing, led by the villainess Jeanine Matthews, played by a blonde and stilet to-clad Kate Winslet in one of her less convinc ing performances (in a sadly under-written role.) Matthews is the leader of Erudite, which means shes got a killer IQ along with those killer heels, and shes convinced that Di vergents are a threat to her plan to overthrow Abne gation. Then theres Peter, an other Dauntless initiate who comes from Candor, meaning the role is perfect for the fast-talking Miles Teller so memorable opposite Woodley in The Spectacular Now, but un derused here. Theres some entertain ing action here, but the action most teen fans may like best involves a liplock as teen movie kiss es go, its a really good one between Woodley and James. Divergent, a Summit Entertainment release, is rated PG-13 by the Mo tion Picture Association of America for intense vio lence and action, thematic elements and some sensu ality. Running time: 143 minutes.

While I do think pregnant wom en are attractive, I really dont want to see their swollen bellies. Wouldnt it be better to just imagine what is under that smock or long skirt? Does anyone agree with me? DOROTHY IN WASHINGTONDEAR DOROTHY: Some readers may agree, but Im pretty sure most of them wont. You are hark ing back to the days when people were embarrassed about the subject of sex, and used euphemisms like in a family way or a bun in the oven to de scribe pregnancy. Women today are proud to show off their silhou ettes.While this may seem to be somewhat in your face, I think its healthi er than pretending theres nothing going on when the expectant mother is in her seventh month and its obvious there is. DEAR ABBY: Im 21 and a college student. My mother recently came to visit me and took my boy friend and me out to dinner. After we were through eating, we sat across the table from my mother and engaged in post-dinner chatter. I draped my arm around his neck and be gan playing with his ear. It was absent-minded, and I thought nothing of it, but my mother stared from across the table shocked. She later told me that ear fondling is not appro priate in public. I was taken aback. Isnt it OK to play with my boyfriends ear in public? Does it make people around us uncomfortable? EAR SNUGGLES IN VERMONTDEAR EAR SNUGGLES: Playing with someones ear could be considered foreplay, and seeing it cer tainly made your mother uncomfortable. Perhaps among your contempo raries it would be acceptable, but as a general rule, its better to keep intimate gestures of affection pri vate. DEAR ABBY: I would like to offer a reminder so people wont have to ex perience what I am right now. Please take a few minutes to go through your wallet and make photocopies of everything in there. Put the list some where you can easily nd it. That way, if your wal let is lost or stolen, youll know what was in it. I did that years ago, but I didnt keep it current and now Im upset with myself. Some time over the weekend I misplaced my wallet. Luckily, I dont keep my ID and deb it cards there, so at least they are safe. But because I use my wallet so seldom, Im unsure what was in there. If people make copies of everything in their wallets, it will be easier to report and replace the things should the need arise. I am so bummed out right now. While I lost only $30, I lost a treasured photo graph of my daughter, and I cant remember what other cards may have been in there. FUMING IN LUTZDEAR FUMING: I know from personal experience how frustrating losing a wallet can be, so thank you for wanting to remind readers how important it is to copy documents or credit cards they car ry with them. It takes only a few minutes, and the peace of mind it brings is worth the effort.Maternity fashions reflect pride in pregnancyDivergent doesnt diverge from the pack quite enough MOVIE REVIEW CRI T I C S RA T ING: DEAR A BB YJeanne Phillips M C Y K

www.newssun.comFriday, March 21, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B3 HEALT H Y LIVING Dear Pharmacist: I had to get a colonoscopy last month, and fortunate ly, everything is OK but it made me worry about co lon cancer. My doctor recommended a stool softener and laxative for me if it gets bad. What else do you suggest for colon health? P.C., OcalaAnswer: Denitely clean yourself out. Im not rec ommending gastric lavage, Im thinking simple solutions like drinking more water, eating more ber and taking probiotics and enzymes. The following dietary supplements act like a sponge binding bile acids and toxins in your intes tine to form an insoluble complex that you excrete. Think of these as a rescue remedy, not for chron ic daily use because they will latch on to your med icine and supplements: Bentonite clay, activat ed charcoal and psyllium husk. Youd pick only one, not all. The bentonite and charcoal can be extreme ly constipating so be careful, and ask your doctor if theyre OK. This may sound weird but your colon is con nected to your head and your gut is often referred to as your second brain. Thats why avoiding vari ous food groups improves mood and migraines. Co lonics are an option. Gun shy about these? I dont blame you. Most co lonic practitioners use an intimidating specu lum, but the newer, thinner nozzles are more comfortable. Thats what Im told by my friend, Fran cis Gonzalez, ND, an IACT certied colon hy drotherapist instructor and founder of Fluid Wa ter Therapy in New York (www.uidwaterthera py.com). I-ACT stands for International Association for Colon Hydrotherapy. Colonics improve lower intestinal health, especial ly if you eat lots of dairy, meat, white our, pro cessed, rened foods, milk chocolate, coffee or alco hol. For some reason, after a while, these foods en crust the intestines with a sludge made up of thick mucus, fecal material, and other trapped debris. The sludge promotes the growth of pathogens add ing to the intestinal mess. If you have any chronic ill ness, I urge you to consider internal pollution, not just environmental pollu tion. Digestive enzymes and probiotics can help, and they are more effec tive after colonic therapy. Colonics (and gentle en emas) help remove toxins from your intestine, reduce bloating and re lieve constipation. Colonics help remove rotting material like meat that gets stuck in your intesti nal tract. Warming up to the idea? Be warned that many colonics are per formed by untrained per sonnel using unregulated, home-made systems re ferred to as Woods Gravity method. Dr. Gonzalez provided some bare mini mum criteria that your colon therapist should meet: Be certied and trained by the International As sociation of Colon Ther apists (IACT) and/or the National Board for Colon Hydrotherapy (NBCHT). Only utilize FDA-regis tered Class II medical devices to conduct the therapy. Only use disposable rec tal nozzles that have been sterilized. Use colon hydrothera py equipment installed with back-ow preven tion valves so that fecal matter from one patient cant contaminate an other (heaven forbid!). Can ensure that the water that is used to cleanse the patients in testinal tract is proper ly puried to eliminate any water-borne micro organisms.Suzy Cohen is a registered pharmacist and the author of The 24Hour Pharmacist and Real Solu tions.

B4 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, March 21, 2014 www.newssun.com BY STEVE MILLER Associated PressTALLAHASSEE (AP) The public could read anony mously posted reviews and complaints of assisted-living facilities and owners of such fa cilities would face higher nes for repeated serious violations under a measure passed unani mously by the Senate on Tuesday. Senate Bill 248 also requires increased licensing for homes that handle mentally impaired residents and requires a rating system be in place for assistedliving facilities by March 2015. Whatever comfort we can give to families who are look ing for a home for a relative, we should give it, said state Sen. Eleanor Sobel, D-Hollywood. This is the third year in a row a measure aimed at enhancing rules for assisted-living facili ties has been introduced, Sobol pointed out. She said that by eliminating some of the smaller violations that can lead to expensive nes even though they dont endan ger or discomfort a patient, we got these groups on board, in cluding the AARP and the Flori da Health Care Association. Those smaller violations in clude a facility worker assisting a resident with self-medication or treatment, such as mea suring vital signs or checking blood-sugar levels. Under the new measure, a worker would be able to assist in those small er tasks without fear of sanction. The public posting site would be part of a consumer guide page administered by the state that would also include infor mation on each licensed facility in the state, including its size, date of opening and vio lations. The comments section would be monitored, and employees of a facility would be prohibited from posting al though facility management could respond to comments as part of the online conversation. The previous legislation wasnt quite clear enough, said Emmett Reed, executive direc tor of the Florida Health Care Association. The association had fought against the public comments page being part of the states website, arguing that the set ting provides an ofcialness to it, Robert Asztalos, who repre sented the health care association as the legislation was being developed, said last month. It should be part of a private page. Still, enough concessions to the supporters of the assistedliving facility industry have so far made the measure palat able. The good facilities want to see this kind of bill, Sobel said. They want the bad ones to be gotten rid of. There are 3,000 assisted-liv ing homes in Florida that provide intermediate care and provide limited supervision to 80,000 people. Lawmakers in recent years have sought to re duce the oversight of assisted-living facilities, although Gov. Rick Scott vetoed one of the most comprehensive mea sures reducing regulation of the homes in 2011.Community outreach events scheduledAce Homecare Community Outreach activities include: Monday 9 a.m., Rest Haven Assisted Living FAcility (Zolfo Springs), Music and Motion; 10:30 a.m., Chatham Point (Wauchula), health fair.

All sites are open to the public.HEALT H Y LIVING Assisted-living facilities face new scrutiny MCTSenate Bill 248 requires a rating system be in place for assisted-living facilities by March 2015. During the Civil War, surgeons were judged on their ability to do speedy surgery. Anesthesia was several strong men hold ing the patient down. Paracelsus described the use of ether in ani mals in 1525, but the rst successful surgery using ether in a human was not done until 1846 in Boston. Nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, was rst used in den tal surgery in 1844. Both anesthetics were slow to be widely adopted be cause of safety issues. There was no way to monitor how much anes thetic the patient was getting. The rst EKG machines were not invented until 1903. Gases with fewer side effects, such as halothane, were not in troduced until the 1950s. Control of a patients air way using endotracheal tubes and safe IV uids are also mid-20th century inventions. Oximeters that can be placed on the n ger to make sure that the patient is getting enough oxygen were not marketed until the 1970s. The rst local anesthetic was intro duced in 1903, but it was not until 1932 that barbi turates were used for IV sedation. The new general anes thetics are safer, but they still have unpleasant side effects such as nausea and vomiting. With our aging population, there are increasing numbers of patients who are poor candidates for general an esthesia. Most upper extremity surgery can be done by in jecting one or more main nerve trunks (regional an esthesia). For smaller sur geries, such as carpal tunnel, injecting the area of the incision is sufcient. Patients having this type of anesthesia have less risk and fewer side effects. A study from Columbia found that patients who had shoulder surgery with regional blocks had less post-op pain than those who had the same surgery with general anesthesia. Since local/regional with IV sedation is safe with much fewer side effects, why is Wide Awake Anes thesia the newest trend in hand surgery? It is more convenient for many pa tients. There is no need to take extra time off work for pre-op lab and clear ances. Patients who live alone are safer being at home alone for the rst 24 hours. There are no fast ing requirements that make it safer for diabetic patients and more pleas ant for those who get caffeine withdrawal headaches. Some surgeries, such as trigger nger releases, can be safely done in the of ce. In some areas, car pal tunnel surgeries are also being done outside the OR. There were only six infections in a series of 1,500 consecutive car pal tunnels done in Canada by surgeons using minimal drapes and wear ing only masks and ster ile gloves with their street clothes. There is less chance of wrong-side surgery in an a wake patient. In tendon surgery, the strength of the repair can be tested. This allows earlier mobili zation and faster recovery. Patients who are not grog gy from sedation remember post-op instructions better. There are also esti mated savings of $300 to $600 per patient. What about those with a fear of needles? Either IV sedation or general an esthesia requires starting an IV with a much bigger needle than the tiny ones used to inject the local an esthesia. What about patient sat isfaction? One hundred consecutive patients who had wide awake anes thesia were polled 91 percent said it was less painful than a visit to the dentist, 86 percent would prefer it for further sur gery and 90 percent would recommend it to a friend or family member. Next time you need hand surgery discuss Wide Awake Anesthe sia with your surgeon, if you are a good candidate you will be pleasantly sur prised by the lack of pain, increased safety and con venience and cost savings.Dr. Diana D.

To his doc tors surprise, he agreed to see an atheist with whom he had often de bated. It was nice of you to allow me to see you, the atheist said, espe cially since youve refused to see even your closest friends. Oh, thats all right, the preacher replied with a weak smile. I have no doubt Ill see my friends in Heaven, but this may be my last chance to see you! One topic about which some do not like to talk is the judgment. In other words, they do not like to talk about that day when we will all come before the throne of God to be judged based upon our adherence to the Bibles instructions. Whether we like or dislike the sub ject, one thing is sure: The judgment is coming! Hebrews 9:27 teaches that man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment. That simply means that after we die (unless Christ re turns rst), we will face a time of sentencing for the actions we chose to take while living in this world. Either we will spend eter nity in Heaven, or we will spend it in everlasting punishment. So, how do we nd favor in the eyes of the Judge? First, we must enter into a relationship with God by becoming one of His chil dren. Only those who follow Gods biblical plan of salvation, which results in immersion into Christ (Romans 6:3, 4) for the forgiveness of sins (Acts 2:38; 22:16), even have the hope of eternal life. But, that alone is not enough! God then instructs us in His word to live faithful lives in service to Him in order to receive our heav enly reward. That instruction is given in Revelation 2:10. It reads, ... Be faith ful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life. Judgment will most cer tainly happen. There is no doubt about it. The only question is this: Af ter the judgment, where will you nd yourself? If you do not know or if you do not like your answer, take comfort. There is still time to make the neces sary changes in your life, as long as you make them right away. Remember, the conse quences of how we live our lives are too eternal to take the judgment light ly. Make sure you are on Heavens side today.Kevins Komments is written by Kevin Patterson and present ed by Sebring Parkway church of Christ, 3800 Sebring Park way.

The church es of Highlands County are working together, with the local members of the Eleventh Hour Workers missionary group a multinational mission team to plan and coordinate the lo cal arrangements for the crusade. The site for the cru sade is the corner of U.S. 27 North and Val erie Boulevard in Sebring (across from Flor ida Hospital Heartland Division). The crusade services will be translat ed into Spanish and possibly other languages, as needed. Ricker is a pastor in the Atlanta area. He has held numerous crusades in India and in Central and South America, es pecially following disasters in various parts of the world. However, this is the rst time the evan gelist has held a crusade in this country. Other groups who have been involved local ly are the Jericho Prayer Team, a non-denomina tional group of pastors, community leaders and concerned citizens that meet weekly to inter cede in prayer for a vecounty region. The Jeri cho Prayer Team has also prayer-walked the site on several occasions. Leadership positions for the crusade have also been lled with minis ters and pastors from the various Highlands County ministerial asso ciations (Avon Park, Sebring, and Lake Placid).

Crossroads Fellowship and Wings of Faith will join Grace Bible for the 11 a.m. service. The Wings of Faith Worship team will provide the Praise and Worship. When Jesus prayed to The Father up in Heav en, it was a prophetic promise. In John 17:2223 He prayed in the Spir it: And the glory which You gave Me I have giv en them (the disciples, the faithful), that they may be one just as We are one: I in them, and You in Me; that they may be made perfect in one, and that the world may know that You have sent Me, and have loved them as You have loved me (NKJV). This speaks of unity through love, the promise of the oneness with God, The Father through His Son Jesus Christ in the Holy Spirit. The principle thing be ing that there should be unity within the body of Christ. Now I plead with you, brethren, wrote Paul in 1 Corinthians 1:10, direct ing the body of Christ, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no di visions among you, but that you be perfect ly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. In Hebrews 10:24-25 he addresses the body of Christ with the purpose of unity with: And let us consider one anoth er in order to stir up love and good works, not for saking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day ap proaching. Whenever the body of Christ gathers it is a joy ous occasion as this is certain to be. Grace Bible is at 4453 Thunderbird Road. All are welcome to attend.Groups joining for service M C Y K

www.newssun.comFriday, March 21, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B9 RELIGION Information abounds on the teachings of various denominations regarding the practice of infant bap tism pros and cons! Perhaps a good sum mary of the infant baptism mindset is expressed in The Heidelberg Cate chism: Infants as well as adults are in Gods cove nant and are His people. They, no less than adults, are promised the for giveness of sin through Christs blood and the Holy Spirit who produces faith. Therefore, by bap tism, the mark of the covenant, infants should be received into the Christian church and should be dis tinguished from the children of unbelievers. This was done in the Old Tes tament by circumcision, which was replaced in the New Testament by bap tism. This 1563 AD manmade document must be examined in light of the inspired Word of God. Since infant baptism is not a New Testament doc trine or example, it is important to understand why and how this came to be accepted by so many churches established by men and women. Sandra DeGidio, O.S.M. in an ar ticle, The Sacrament of Baptism, observed, In the Church of the rst three centuries adult Baptism was the norm. and Soon adult Baptisms declined, infant Baptism became the norm and the process and theology of Chris tian initiation of adults as practiced in the early Church became a lost art. According to various historical sources, the ear liest reference to infant baptism was by Irenaeus (AD 130-202) in his work Against Heresies. Origen (185-254) and Tertullian (155-230) also mention in fant baptism as traditional and customary. Following the exam ple of the Bereans in Acts 17:11, (they received the word with all readiness and searched the Scrip tures daily) we will consider the bases offered to justify infant baptism. Many people accept vari ous doctrines never questioning their origin or validity in light of Truth. The rst step would be to identify the mean ing of sin a missing of the mark; an act of dis obedience to divine law (Vines Complete Exposi tory Dictionary). Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin (James 4:17). There must also be a clear understanding be tween the guilt of sin and consequences of sin. The guilt of sin is personal, whereas the consequenc es of personal sins may affect others also physically, i.e. drugs, AIDS, DUI, etc. The person who sins will die. The son will not bear the punishment for the fathers iniquity, nor will the father bear the pun ishment for the sons iniquity; the righteousness of the righteous will be upon himself, and the wicked ness of the wicked will be upon himself (Ezekiel 18:20). The guilt of sin is not something you inher it, but something you do. One of the often used reasons for infant baptism is the references to house hold conversions/baptisms such as Lydia and the jailor (Acts 16:13-15; 25-34). First, these con versions were from the orders given by Jesus in Matthew 28:18-20 and Mark 16:15,16. This Divine plan included baptism proceeded by preaching and believing the gospel. There are many assump tions in this reasoning for infant baptism: husband/ wife; children; infant chil dren. None of these are stated in the households mentioned. Another effort to justify infant baptism as Biblical is the claim that such is the same as circumcision under the Old Law. Colos sians 2:11,12 is claimed to teach infant baptism based on this premise. The context is speaking of those who were dead in transgressions and forgiv en of the same. If this is teaching that infant bap tism is parallel to circumcision, then only male babies would be baptized and only on the eight day after birth. (Genesis 17:12; John 7:22,23) Galatians is an inspired letter straight to the point: You have become es tranged from Christ, you who attempt to be justi ed by law; you have fallen from grace (Galatians 5:4). In this pointed message, Paul was con scious of his responsibility as a gospel preacher; For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ and Have I there fore become your enemy because I tell you the truth? (Galatians 1:10; 4:16). Such must be the mindset of every teacher/ preacher of the gospel of Christ!
