The move away from night meetings occurred shortly after commissioner Greg Harris took over as chairman in November. We should do what the public wants us to do, said Highlands County Commissioner Jack Richie. I have no problem with night meetings. The problem has been that we just dont get members of the public there. The petition by the Petition drive under way to bring back night commission meetings Night meetings are often sparsely attended, but occasionally the county commission chambers are packed, like was the case with this night meeting regarding the Swamp Hammock proposal in 2013. Working on some night movesTwo meetings per month is only half the job that was there when the present commission ran for office. We now pay them full pay for half the meetings.Bill Youngman citizen, on the county commission no longer having night meetings and also meeting just twice a month MANHUNT LOCKS DOWN SCHOOLSKatara Simmons/News-SunThe Highlands County Sheri s O ce launched a manhunt Thursday morning after a suspect ran from deputies.

He was described as weighing about 250 pounds, running through the neighborhood and the golf course, Hoglund said. Police were monitoring the bears movements through what would otherwise be a well-built up area without much wilderness/urban interface. So far, no one had a direct encounter with the bear, he said. He had no reports of property Bear spotted in Sebring Golf Course areaSPD: No human encounters reported While bears are often sighted in Highlands County, they are usually in remote areas, like this mama bear and her two cubs that were along a remote stretch of Hallmark Avenue in Highlands Park Estates near Lake Placid.

Call 314-9876 or 465-2522 BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterAVON PARK A for mer president and for mer treasurer of Avon P ar k Baseball Inc. have been charged with fraud and grand theft from the organization, amounting to $4,338 in fraudulent charges and checks. Highlands County Sheriffs deputies ar rested and charged 37-y ear -old Christopher Wayne Tolar and 54-y ear -old Sharon Ly nette Tomlinson with gr and theft and fr aud. Tolar was president of the y outh baseball organization until January 2013, when he was asked to step down. Tomlinson was tr easur er of the gr oup during his tenur e and was r esponsible for keeping the boar d infor med of the nances, reports said. Automatic teller machine withdrawals and char ges on the or ganizations Heartland N ational B ank debit card included trips to Walmart and Winn-Dixie in Sebring, restaurants, gas stations and personal pur chases including a lawn mower, window air-conditioner and a beer tap cooler system, accor ding to arr est reports. J arr ed Cloud, the current organization president, rst noticed the fraud after T olar s departure when he started going over bank statements. Tomlinson also wrote four checks two to cash and two to herself. One ATM withdraw al was for $500 on S ept. 15, 2012, r eported in treasurers reports as being a pur chase for a mower. H o wever, the mower reportedly cost $325 from Insight Auctioneers. T olar r eportedly spent $55 on a window air-conditioner and $35 on a beer tap cooler at the same vendor and didn t return the remaining money. Cloud told deputies that purchases from Walmart and WinnDixie would not have been approved because the group supports Avon Park businesses. The group also pr ohibits using its money to refuel per sonal vehicles, reports said. H e told deputies that he had to go pick up the mower from Tolar. Also, Tolar has written Avon Park Baseball a $90 check to r epay purchases at Chilis Bar & Grill in Sebring and Murphy Express in Avon Park. Tomlin son never cashed the check, r epor ts said. Tomlinson told deputies she wrote a $1,500 check on Dec. 2, 2011, to cash, which she said she cashed and gave the money to Tolar. She also told depu ties he asked her not to r eect the check on treasurers reports to the Avon Park Baseball Inc. board. She also wrote and cashed a $540 check on June 8, 2012, and gave the money given to Tolar, allegedly to co v er expenses at a tournament the group was playing in, reports said. Again, there was no report to the board. A $611 check on July 10, 2012, written to Tomlinson, was alleg edly owed to her for pur chases made with her own money, including wristbands for a tour nament, bar stools for the clubhouse, sh for a meal, C uban sandwiches for a meal, bread and drinks. Her treasurers re port showed that check as $21.69 for Palmer Electric. She also wrote a check to herself on July 26, 2012, for $562. She told deputies she cashed the check, but couldnt remember why it was issued, oth er than it being Tolars r equest or something to do with the group. In her report, the check was listed as written to Anthony Smith for $214.Couple charged with theft from Avon Park Baseball T oO L arAR T omOM L insonINSON TALLAHASSEE (AP) Fifteen years after a landmark Supreme Court r uling on giving the disabled a choice to liv e outside institutions F lor ida remains near the bottom in terms of progress.

Kids at the YMCA summer camp did have their outdoor time cur tailed by the reports of the r o ving bruin, however. I hav e friends who say theyve seen bears in (the area of) Henscratch (Road), he said. I dont know if he came in or hes living there. Hoglund said Florida black bears tend to keep to war d wilder ness. Referring to the F lor ida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions website www .myfw c.com he said its important people exercise common sense Dont try to chase or photograph the bear. Dont try to run it off and dont put trash with food in it over night, Hoglund said. H e also suggested people who live near undeveloped areas also pull in bird feeders at night and not let kids play outside unattend ed. The FW C also advises Floridians to: % Secur e household garbage in a shed, garage or a wildliferesistant container. (Information is avail able online at myfwc. com.) % Put household gar bage out on the mor ning of pickup rather than the night before. % Secur e commercial garbage in bear-resistant dumpsters. % Pr otect gardens, apiaries, compost and liv estock with electr ic fencing. % Encour age the local homeowners association or government to pass or dinances on secur ing foods that attr act wildlife % Feed pets indoors or bring in dishes after feeding. % Clean grills and stor e them in a locked, se cure place. % Remo ve wildlife feeders or make them bear-resistant. % Pick ripe fr uit from trees and remove fallen fruit from the ground, because bears love fruit. The FWC also advis es residents should not r ely on scr eened enclosures to store any of the abo v e items. They are not secure and will not keep out bears. BEAR FROM PAGE A A 1Citizens for Government Accountability notes that the star t of the commissions regular morning sessions at 9 / a.m. denies those with regular day jobs the opportunity to offer input or otherwise be inv olv ed with county business that directly affects them. M or eover, the docu ment maintains that commissioners cut back to just two meetings per month was done in opposition to a number of r esidents wishes. Additionally, the petition charges the shor ter schedule does not allow commissioners sufcient time to addr ess all issues of public interest including the citizens not on the agenda por tion of the meetings. The citizen input time was cut out of the last regular meeting because commission ers had to go to a statemandated ethics session in Orlando. W e brought it up at the last Highlands Tea Party meeting and I got really good response. Several people even offered me help in distributing the petition, said M ar y Bengtson, who is spearheading the effort. Resident Bill Young man, a regular citizen contr ibutor at many commission meetings, maintains that having the sessions dur ing the daytime makes it impossible for some r esidents with regular jobs to run for the ofce due to the fact that their emplo yment pr ecludes them from attending meetings as required. W e are missing out on a lot of good commissioners because of this he said. Pointing out that Avon Park, Sebring and Lake Placid councils hold their regular sessions at night, Youngman also called on commissioners to begin the night sessions at 6 / p .m., which would give many residents an opportunity to get off work, have a quick dinner, then come to the commission meetings as desir ed. Youngman also blanched at the twiceper-month schedule, which was also adopt ed in November. T wo meetings per month is only half the job that was there when the present commission ran for ofce, he said. We now pay them full pay for half the meetings. When I was elected three and a half years ago, I signed on for a meeting each Tues day, said Commissioner Don Elwell. My feelings r emain unchanged. We also have a lot of impor tant issues that will be com ing up before the board in the next few months especially .

The wr eck occurr ed at 11:05 / a.m. Thursday, and emergency crews and towing companies had the lanes cleared by 11:36 / a.m. The wr eck involved a silver Ford Escape, dark blue Chrysler 200 and crimson Chrysler Sebring convertible. The Ford had rear end damage while the two Chryslers had severe front end damage. Ofcer Maribel Gar za, investigating the wr eck, said all occupants w ere treated at F lor ida Hospital Heartland Medical Center. The wr eck occurr ed, she said, when Mary Gregg, 87, of Sebring turned her Chrys ler Sebring left toward H ammock R oad in front of a southbound black Chrysler 200 sedan, driven by 65-yearold G ayle S wanson, who recently moved to Sebring from Wisconsin. They hit head-on, off-center Garza said. The impact spun the convertible counterclockwise. It stopped sitting diagonally across the southbound lanes, facing eastward near the median just south of the intersec tion. The 200 spun clockwise and side-swiped the F or d Escape, which was waiting to turn right onto U.S. 27 from Hammock Road. Garza said Gregg would be cited for fail ing to yield to southbound trafc, since she had a gr een light, but not a protected left-turn arrow. Gregg complained of chest pains and cuts on her body, Garza said. Swanson com plained of neck, knee and ankle injur ies Garza said. Her passengers daughter K elly S wanson, 37, and grandson, Tyler Swanson, 11, both complained of head and knee injur ies The driver of the Escape 53-year-old P enny B urnell of Sebring and her passenger and father, David Fisher of Sebring, w er e uninjured.

Add to these the fact that air trafc controllers are too sleepy, and anyone who boards a plane should be very afraid. The controllers are suffering from chronic fatigue while on the job the task of keeping the millions of people who y from here to there safe in the air. It remains a major threat to the safety of the ying public that the Federal Aviation Administration must address immediately. Its not as if the FAA had no idea that too many of its 15,000 air trafc con trollers are at risk of nodding off or sluggish thinking. Thr ee years ago, it was disclosed that there were control lers who were falling asleep in front of their screens which forced the FAA to take a closer look at work scheduling, which has contributed to the prob lem. This latest disclosur e is a r esult of a report, mandated by Congress, from the National Research Council. At is sue, short-term, is the policy that al lows controllers to work ve eighthour shifts o v er four consecutive days the last one being a midnight shift. Controllers love it because they get 80 hours the equivalent of two tra ditional work weeks off before they hav e to r eturn to work. However, the report says that this scheduling likely results in severely reduced cognitive performance during the midnight shift because of fatigue. The schedule might be popular, but its a dangerous one. The FAA should sit down with the National Air Trafc Controllers Association and develop scheduling that reduces fatigue on the job and increases ight safety. To its credit, the FAA imposed a fa tigue risk management program after several controllers were caught sleeping on the job a few years ago. Cutbacks, however, have thwart ed the programs effectiveness. This is not encouraging news Neither is whats roaring down the pike, com ing straight at helpless plane passen gers and crew members at the mercy of air tr afc contr ollers who might or might not be at the top of their game. The FAA is confronting a del uge of retirements. Controllers are required to retire when they turn 56. The agency will hav e to r eplace about twothirds of this workforce 10,000 con trollers during the next 10 years. Flying shouldn t be a crap shoot because someone was asleep at the switch.An editorial from the Miami Herald. Glen Nickerson President firstname.lastname@example.orgAsleep at the switch?Everyone and I mean EVERYONE, is aware that prom is a big deal, but with all the aspects it incorporates, how can a girl make sure to nd a dress that meets the three A require ments? That s right: Availability, Affordability, and A ppr opriateness. There is much preparation when it comes to pr om season; girls plan for prom weeks sometimes even months ahead to make sure their night is like one from a fai rytale. B ut what does this princess for a night idea entail? Well, the perfect dress of course! It is the price that comes along with the dress that can present a major problem though, as well as the style of the dress. Not every girl, in fact, not the majority of girls can go out and pur chase a $600-plus dress at the dr op of a hat. These ar e all things I began to realize once I started high school and my solution to it all was put into action fall of my junior year. So what was this great resolution you may ask? The Princess Project! The Princess Project was created to provide gently used and new prom dresses to girls within the surrounding communities at no cost to them. Sounds too good to be true, doesnt it? I thought so, too, un til this idea of mine became a reality with the close help of my mother, grandmother, and Ms D eMarco (my inschool project super visor). Local community members willingly donated dr esses for the pr oject and, in r eturn, their donations were tax deductible. There were also a few individuals who donated brand new dresses, money to purchase pr om tickets and suits for boys, and high heels that were donated from a prom dress and bridal shop in Winter Haven known as Angeliques. These generous donations overwhelmed and ex ceeded my expectations for a pr ogram that was so new. T o add a fun twist to the project, we held a fashion show, complete with escorts, and fr iends of mine who volunteered as dress models. A little later down the road, one spring Satur day morning, we strutted across the stage and gav e our best pageant wav es in hopes that a girl in the audience would want the dr ess w e were modeling. After the sho w several girls at a time were let into the r oom wher e we kept the dresses, as well as provided several private dressing rooms, to make sure the dresses t each girl perfectly. W e then took the dr esses to several neighbor ing high schools to give girls ther e the chance to nd the dress of their dreams as well. Seeing girls leave happy with a dress that they had fallen in love with was such a heartwarming and reward ing experience for me. I gr aduated fr om Frostproof Middle-Senior High School in 2012, and guess what? The P r incess Project is still in existence and available to interested girls. Although the proj ect has scaled down o v er the past couple of years, the dress closet is still open to girls not only for prom, but for homecoming as well. If interested in do nating a dress or receiving a dress, please feel fr ee to contact Ms Nancy DeMarco at (863) 635-7809.Kirsten Scarborough is an in tern for the News-Sun.

What happened to the hopeful y oung man who promised all those great things in 2008? Whats happened to America under Barack Obama? Our economy is still mired in a recession he still blames on George W. Bush. Weve got 100 million able-bodied countrymen and women who arent working because they cant nd a decent job or theyd rather live off tax payers. O ur GDP w ent down nearly 3 percent in the rst quarter of this year, supposedly because of the lousy weather. More probably, it was because the high cost and confusion of Obam aCare has scared the pants off the small businesses of America. Overseas the entire Middle East is a disaster and getting worse by the day. Iraq has taken a turn for the worse in large part because Obama couldnt gure out how to handle Malaki, so he basically decided to abandon ship. Iraq is sinking into cha os and being colonized b y insane r eligious ter rorists. Syria, which has fallen off the nightly news and the fr ont pages for some strange reason, is still hosting a bloody civil war. E gypt and Lib ya are broken states. Afghanistan will revert to Taliban contr ol thr ee months after we leave. W ould any one blame Israel for mounting a rst strike against Iran or one of its other enemies? They know that as long as Obama is our gun-shy commander-in-chief, well not be doing any thing to help them. P oor Obama. The re in his belly is clearly gone. At home only his true believers still believe his wild promises and lofty big-government rheto ric. Overseas, he has no agenda or policy so he s ignored or disrespected by everyone from Putin to Assad. Obamas still got more than two years to go on his second term, but hes already acting like a caretaker. H e s lucky he still has the mainstream media by his side or hed been looking at impeachment. Imagine if the jour nalists at the New York T imes NBC or the New Yorker magazine were real watch-dogs, instead of the Obama White House lapdogs they still are. Imagine if the IRS abuses or the botched launch of ObamaCare had happened under Bush IIs watch. Imagine if a third of Iraq had been overrun by ISIS terrorists in 2007. Or if our ambassador in Benghazi had been killed that year by terrorists. The front pages of the Times and the Wash ington Post would have been slather ed with new investigative stories and hour-by-hour reports every day. The liber al media would have personally blamed Bush II and Dick Cheney for every slaughtered person and for every lost village or oil well. E xactly who w e elect president in two years almost doesnt matter, as long as he or she kno ws how to be a cheerleader for America. Im so sick of what Obama has done to the spirit and reputation of this great country that Ill vote for the shoeshine boy at the airport if he can make me feel good again about America and her standing in the world.Michael Reagan is the son of President Ronald Reagan, a political consultant, and an au thor.

There were also 27 spent .22-caliber casings and a semi-automatic, pump-action .22 ri e with a 30-shot, high-capacity magazine found at the scene. An autopsy showed the Thomas Markland was shot once in the left forearm, twice in the right forearm, ve times in the chest and 17 times in the left side and back of his head. The evidence, most notably a noticeable void in the door and the position of his body indicates that Thomas Markland was on his knees facing the door when he was killed from behind, the report said. The initial gunshots would have disabled the victim, but the fatal gunshots were red into the victims body when he was facing away from the defendant. The physical evidence suggests the victim was shot and killed in an execution style manner, the report said. Witnesses told investigators that Phillip Markland came to town for a Fathers Day family gathering, but got into an argument. The defendant is known to have a drug problem with K-2 Spice and anger issues, the report said. The defendant repeatedly stated that he was Jesus Christ and soon enough he was going to take everyone home. The defendant said he wanted to apologize for what (he) was going to do next, however he could not speak of it now. The defendant also said the time is near, the time is soon and soon everyone will know, the report said. The witness said everyone was afraid of Phillip Markland and that nobody wanted the defendant to stay in their home. Another witness said that Phillip Markland appeared sober at the family gathering, but seemed very angry when he was dropped off at his uncles home around 8:30 p.m. That witness told deputies that Phillip Markland had a split personality and was also highly trained in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and extremely pro cient with rearms. That witness also said they called Thomas Marklands home around 10 p.m. to check on Thomas Marklands safety. At 11:16 p.m., Thomas Markland called 911 and told the dispatcher that he had shot his nephew in self defense and asked for medical assistance. Thomas Markland can be heard on the 911 call telling Phillip to stay on the ground, to which Phillip reportedly responded shut your (expletive) mouth. Then, several gunshots are heard on the tape. Phillip Markland then called 911 and said that he had been shot and that I shot him dead. CENTRAL FLORIDA CASKET STORE &; 1 x 6; Black; 3045825; 910; June Obit Page 3047862 KILLING FROM PAGE A1seem to be settled, Gibson said. He said the settlement agreement dealt with Councilman Anderson paying back both Deleon and the city for the costs of investigating and defending against an ethics complaint he made against Deleon last year. The investigation by the Florida Commission on Ethics found no basis for Andersons allegations. Deleon alleges that Anderson, his mother, Sherry Anderson, and his sister, Brittany McGuire, defamed him in hopes that accusations would become part of of cial records. He also claims all three knew their statements were false and they made them with the intent of humiliating him and injuring his reputation and character. Van der Boom said Councilman Anderson wanted to have the hearings in closed chambers, but it was Deleon who wanted to make the ndings public. He also said some of the items presented in Deleons complaint deal with disputes not directly related to the ethics complaint. Deleon is seeking damages in excess of $15,000. You dont have to ask for speci c damages because (its an) attack against your way of earning a living, Gibson said. The jury will have to determine whether real damages occurred and put an amount on it. The lawsuit stems a struggle dating back events surrounding why Councilman Anderson made a complaint to the Florida Commission on Ethics on March 12, 2013. Anderson alleged that Deleon had his business, Anderson Arms Inc. ammunition manufacturing, investigated as retaliation for questioning why Deleon was allowed to live in Lake Placid while serving as Avon Park city manager. Anderson claimed both the county building inspector and city re department inspector visited his business shortly after he criticized Deleon, and that both men told him they were instructed to nd something wrong. When questioned by the Ethics Commission, both men denied being sent by Deleon or telling Anderson that Deleon had instructed them or threatened their jobs. Deleon also said he couldnt give orders to a county of cial. Deleon told the News-Sun he was investigating complaints that Andersons business had improper wiring for manufacturing. Anderson has said inspectors and an investigation by the city found nothing wrong. Based on probable cause that some testimony in the Ethics Commission were false, the Ethics Commission forwarded the case to the Division of Administrative Hearings in December 2013, which also found no evidence to support the allegations. SUIT FROM PAGE A1 BY BARRY FOSTER NEWS-SUN CORRESPONDENT SEBRING It happens about this time every June, as members of the Highlands County Amateur Radio Club gather for their annual Field Day activities. The daylong event, which will span Saturday and Sunday, culminates Amateur Radio Week. As always, the group will take the opportunity to demonstrate their emergency capabilities, this time in a grassy area next to the Highlands County Emergency Operations Center off George Boulevard. Its a chance for us to go out and test our equipment using generator power so that in the event of an emergency we will be ready to set up just about anywhere, said HCARC event coordinator Jeff Bronsing. Last year, the groups members joined more than 35,000 of their counterparts across the country in Field Day activities. The hams, as they are known, construct makeshift stations and use only emergency power supplies to make contacts around the country. It is not only emergency power, but other transmission equipment that may use available resources. Bronsing said there was the possibility that trees at the site could become supports for broadcast antennas, simulating another method that may be used in an emergency. They may set up what is called a dipole. They toss lines up into the trees and attach the antenna between the lines, he said. That makes for a kind of natural antenna mast. In the past, the club has made as many as 1,200 contacts over a 24-hour period. However, the activites may be limited a bit this year due to the weather and a downturn in participation. Weve lost a few of our operators due to personal commitments and other conditions beyond their control, he said. Were probably going to have about a half dozen. In addition, the group is keeping their eye on an approaching weather front, which could make for an increasing chance of thunderstorms during the weekend. If we have storms move in well disconnect everything, he said. The actual event will run Saturday at 2 p.m. until Sunday at 2 p.m., Bronsing said. We will start setting up Saturday morning around 10 a.m. The goal is for the club to make as many contacts as they can across the country and around the world. Were likely to be able to make some contacts in Europe and central or South America, he said. This will be Bronsings rst event here, having moved to Highlands County just this past October. Another focus of this weekends event will be a demonstration of amateur radio capabilities for the public. If theres anybody in the public who wants to stop by and see what we are doing, or anybody interested in Ham Radio this would be a good time to stop out, he said. Bronsing said he hoped to be able to use the eld day activities both to score points for the club as well as a way to boost membership in amateur radio broadcasting. If there are Ham operators around that are not involved with the club wed love to have them join. We have a very active Amateur Radio Emergency Services group thats known as ARES, he said. They help out with the EOC. Those wishing more information may contact Bronsing at KJ4NEO@gmail.comHam radioers ready for Field Day exercises Local ham radio operators will try to make as many contacts as they can using emergency power to simulate a disaster during Saturdays Field Day event on George Boulevard in Sebring. MIKE SCHNEIDER ASSOCIATED PRESS ORLANDO Floridas population continued to get older last year from a combination of natural aging and new residents, and the state had the highest rate of residents older than 65 years old. New estimates released Thursday by the U.S. Census Bureau showed that Florida grew by 1.2 percent from 2012 to 2013, and the state now has about 19.5 million residents. The 230,000 new residents last year are still less than the numbers at the height of Floridas last boom in the middle of the last decade. But University of Florida demographer Stefan Rayer says it marks a return to decent growth following stagnant population change during the recession.

First-place honors went to the team of Rich P errson and Brad Arnold with ve sh weighing in at 15.47 lbs, earning them $1,340.

Taking fourth was the team of Andy Mar kum and Cody Wiggins with four bass w eighing 11.73 lbs ., earning them $240, plus the big bass of the tour nament at 7.85 lbs earning them an additional $150. T eams that shed in the 2013-2014 season have until Tuesday, July 1, to sign up and secure a position for the 20142015 season.

Enrollment will stop at 25 teams, so if youre interested, dont wait too long to get signed up. I shed the rst cou ple of tournaments with this club and they do an outstanding job Although I did not sh the championship, I heard it was a pretty tough day on the water and the guys that took the top four places had to work for it. Learning how to sh a lure Years ago, back in the early 70s when I start ed shing local and regional tournaments, like many sher men, I was trying to learn how to use a plastic worm effectively. Id sh draw tour naments and watch other guys catch a bass or two on a plastic wor m while I was thr o wing a spinnerbait or crankbait, make the switch to a worm and catch nothing. Time after time Id cast out that plastic worm and after a half dozen casts, set the rod aside and go back to shing something I had more condence in. Then one day I de cided, Im going to lear n ho w to sh a plastic worm effectively. M y plan was pr etty simple, instead of loading up a half-do zen r ods with all my favorite lures ready to go and a tackle bo x with lots more, Id leave it all behind and take only one rod and a couple packages of plastic wor ms My reasoning was pretty simple. If thats all I had to sh with, I wouldnt be tempted to set it aside in favor of my other condence baits. But after an hour or so of shing areas that I knew held sh without a hit, I started to won der if this was really such a good idea. Then I felt what was to become the familiar tap tap as I waited for my Texas rigged worm to sink to the bottom. Reeling down to take out the slack line, I set the hook on a feisty smallmouth bass. Removing the hook from the smallie, I was anxious to get back into the water to catch another one. By the end of the day Id caught and released a dozen bass, both largemouth and small mouth but more importantly, Id learned a v aluable lesson. I f you want to learn how to use a particular bait youve got to stick with it. In the past, like many shermen, when I didnt catch anything right away, Id give up and go to a bait I had more condence in. Thats pretty hard to do if you didnt bring anything but the bait you wanted to learn how to use. Fishing a plastic worm is pretty easy. You simply cast it out, let it sink and hop it back to you.

Many of these girls started when they were 7 and 8 and always coming up a bit shor t.

Lake P lacid beat Wahneta in the rst game of the tournament 7-6, then won the championship game 12-9. The way this team was playing, I knew that even though we made a few mistakes this team would pull it off, said Lake Plac id head coach Linette W ells This whole tournament not one time did we give up and that is what got us here today. The Green Dragons pounded out 16 hits and though they com mitted four errors, the defense came thr ough when it was needed the most. Half of those mistakes were probably coaching errors, W ells said. You think you can rotate people around, but if it is not br oke you dont x it. That is what I did, I tried to x something that was not broken and it took them a little time to get back in the r hythm, but they pulled it off. After holding Wahneta scoreless in the rst inning, Lake P lacid was able to take a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the rst. Singles by Alyssa Or tiz, Leah Moore and Dontaysha G obour ne produced the rst run of the game. Wahneta, who was last years District 5 champions, did not just roll over as they scored twice in the second inning to take a 2-1 lead. Lake Placid charged back in the bottom of the second as Ki ara Slade led off with a walk and J illiam Rykaceski singled into right eld. Both scored on ground balls by Dustin Gibson and Haley Carl as the Green Dragon regained the lead 3-2. Lake Placid pad ded their lead in the bottom of the four th when, with one out, Kelcie Rodriguez lined a ball into right eld that scooted past the right elder to the fence.

Whit Wyatt pitched the r st 16 innings for the Dodgers. Both clubs played a 26-inning tie in 1920 at the same Braves Field. 1958 Billy Pierce of the Chicago White Sox retired 26 straight Washington batters before pinch-hitter Ed Fitzgerald hit a double just inside the right-eld line for the only hit. Pierce then struck out Albie Pearson on three pitches and beat the Senators 3-0. 1973 David Clyde, a $125,000, 18-yearold bonus baby with the Rangers, pitched ve innings, struck out eight and allowed one hit in his rst major league start. Texas beat the Minnesota Twins 4-3 before 35,698 fans the Rangers rst home sellout at Arlington Stadium. 1980 The Los Angeles Dodgers Jerry Reuss pitched a no-hitter against the San Francisco Giants in an 8-0 victory at Candlestick Par k. The only player to reach base was Jack Clark in the rst inning on a throwing error by shortstop Bill Russell. 1986 San Francisco rookie Robby Thompson set a major league record when he was caught stealing four times in the Giants 7-6, 12-inning victor y over the Cincinnati Reds. Catcher Bo Diaz threw out Thompson in the fourth, sixth, ninth and 11th innings. 1993 Anthony Young of the New York Mets set a major league record by losing his 24th straight decision, 5-3 to the St. Louis Cardinals. 1999 Ken Griffey Jr. hit his 27th homer and robbed Juan Gonzalez of a three-run shot with a spectacular over-the-fence catch as the Seattle Mariners beat the Texas Rangers 5-2 in the nal game at the Kingdome. 2003 Boston set a major league record by scoring 10 runs before the rst out. The 50-minute, 91-pitch rst inning came during a 25-8 victory over Florida. The Red Sox also tied an AL record with 14 rst-inning runs. Johnny Damon matched a major league mark with three hits in an inning. 2007 Ryan Howard hit his 100th career homer in his 325th game, becoming the fastest player to reach that total. Howards threerun shot off Cincinnati s Aaron Harang gave the Phillies a 3-0 lead in the fth inning. The 505-foot drive was the longest in the fouryear history of Citizens Bank Park. 2008 Carlos Delgado of the New York Mets homered twice, including a grand slam, and set a franchise record with nine RBIs in a 15-6 rout of the Yankees at Yankee Stadium in the opener of the teams two-ballpark doubleheader. The Y ankees beat the Mets 9-0 at Shea Stadium in the night game. 2009 A.J. Burnett pitched a one-hitter to give the New York Yankees a 5-0 win over the New York Mets. Alex Cora got the Mets only hit, lining a clean single to center to lead off the sixth. He had been 0 for 21 with eight strikeouts against Burnett. 2010 Jamie Moyer surrendered his recordbreaking 506th home run but was sharp otherwise, and the Philadelphia Phillies took advantage of Torontos troubles to beat the Blue Jays 11-2. Moyer only mistake was a two-run homer by Vernon Wells in the third inning. Moyer passed former Phillies Hall of Famer Robin Roberts for the most homers allowed in a career.

A10 | NEWSSS U nN | Friday, June 27, 2014 www.newssun.com when youve had a strike. Sometimes its a tap tap while other times youll see your line move, or in the case where a bass picks it up and comes toward you, youll simply have an abundance of slack line. But like anything else, it takes a lit tle practice to get the feel . Over the years Ive learned how to use many other lures effectively using the same tactic J ust after Joe Med lock started making his Medlock Jig, I just couldn t seem to get bit using such a heavy jig in the reeds and lily pads. Similar to what Id done in the past, Id try it a few times and give up, opting to go back to ipping a Gary Yamamoto Senko or Yum Dinger which I had great condence in. Eventually, I made up my mind to sh only the Medlock jig. And just like that, I started to catch sh. Not only did I start to catch sh, but I g ured out the slight differences to shing a jig in heavy co v er versus a plastic worm. And maybe its just my imagination, but Im pretty sure the sh I catch on the Med lock Jig are bigger than those caught on plastic worms. N o w, when I head out to the lake, I have one rod specically set up with a oz blue/ black Medlock jig cause I wouldnt leave home without it. There are many good, even great bass shermen in this area and all of them can tell you how to sh effec tively virtually any lure ev er made But telling you how to use it is not enough. If you really want to learn how to use a lure, try my technique. Leave everything else at home so you wont be tempted to set it aside, and stick with it all day. You might be sur prised at just how well it catches sh and ho w procient you become using it!Don Norton is a profession FISH FROM PAGE A A 8 James Taylor/News-SunLake Placids Shortstop Jacee Turner puts the tag on Avon Parks Thalia Sanchez, who was attempted to steal second base.benetted from inconsistent pitching by A v on Park. Jaycee Turner and Kalisha Jones both singled for the Green Dragons only two hits in the rst inning. But Jones shot into left eld drove in two runs to give Lake Plac id a 2-0 lead. The G r een Drag ons scored ve more r uns without a base hit through a myriad of walks and passed balls to take a 7-0 lead at the end of the rst inning. Avon Parks pitching got better in the sec ond as there were only two walks but Lake Placid took advantage as they bashed out eight hits A von Parks defense also committed four errors as the Green Dragons scored 10 runs in the second inning. Katlynn Wilson led off with a single for Lake Placid. After an error on the rst baseman, Turn er smacked her second hit of the game into left eld to dr ive in two runs to give Lake Placid a 9-0 lead. Another err or allo wed a score before J ones dr ove in third run of the game with her second base hit as the Green Dragons lead swelled to 11-0. Two walks, two er rors, and singles by S y dney Wells and Nitzellie Amaro and a triple by Kylie Elliott into r ight eld led to six more runs as Lake Placid 17-0 after two innings. Avon Park was un able to mount an offense over the next two innings but held Lake Placid scoreless in the third as the game was stopped after Avon Park batted in the fourth due to the 10run rule. The State Tourna ment lies ahead of the Lake P lacid P ony tail All-Stars and Jones kno ws that ther e is room for improvement on his team. We have to get a little better at hitting the ball and base r unning, he said. Be smart and know what to do. We have to play better situational and fundamental ball, but I am pr oud of them. Jones also noted that pitching had been a weak point in the past, but they have made huge strides in that area this past year. We are four strong with a fth one that is getting better, said Jones. That will help us out a lot and I be lieve we will be a contender this year because of our pitching depth. The State Tournament will be July 10-13 in O keechobee PONYS FROM PAGE A A 8Melissa and Ojeda and Moore and a double by Gobourne contributed to three more runs as Lake Placid led 7-2 after three. Again, W ahneta came back in the top of the fth as they took advantage of a couple of errors and a couple of walks. That combined with a double by Janie Her nandez that produced one r un and a single into right eld by McK enzie Conner to drive in her second and thir d runs of the game, cut the Lake Placid lead to one, 7-6. Lake Placid gave themselves some breathing room in the bottom of the frame as singles by Ortiz and Moore and a bases loaded walk gave the Green Dragons a 9-6 lead after ve. After Wahneta scored once in the top of the sixth, Lake Plac id responded by starting the bottom of the inning with v e consecutiv e base hits. R ykaceski star ted the barrage with a single into left eld, Gibson followed with a single into center and Carl a single into right center to load the bases. Legacy Hart singled into left to bring in two runs and Ashley Perdian single down the left-eld line An err or would bring in Lake Placids third run of the inning and nal run of the game as they held a 12-7 heading into the nal inning. Wahnetas rst two batters reached via er rors and eventually scored, but the next thr ee batters w ent down in order to secure the 12-9 win for Lake P lacid and the District 5 championship. W ells noted that it is a huge condence boost beating Wahneta, last years District 5 champions not once but twice in the tour nament. This team plays well together, she said. I have never coached a team that is this gelled. Wells did note that they need to work on pitching and catching before the state tour nament. W e have to eliminate some of those passed balls she said. We also have to work on holding them from stealing. Leah Moore is dedicated to the catching position and does a gr eat job behind the plate, we just have to work on her arm strength and throwing to second.

L IVING B Wednesday, June 25, 2014 Photo courtesy of Getty ImagesPrepare for the unexpectedWhether you are raising a family, moving to a larger home, or planning for college tuition payments and retirement, life insurance is an impor tant consideration for protecting your family and assets. LIMRA, a life insurance industry research organization, reported in 2011 that one in three U.S. households has no life insurance at all. For those that do, life insurance holders only own enough on average to replace house hold income for 3 1/2 years, while the recommended industry rule of thumb is around seven to 10 years. Life Insurance is absolutely critical for families who want to secure their nancial futures, said Cyn thia Tidwell, CEO and president of Royal Neighbors of America, one of Americas rst women-led life in surers. At every stage of your life, consider who depends on you and what expenses will need to be met to protect the ones you love. Women in particular undervalue their worth in a household and also need coverage. TY PES OF LIFE I NSURANCE Life insurance is an important Term insurance Whole life insurance is per U niversal life insurance FAMILY FEATURES Life is a series of milestones, and at each stage the nancial protection of assets, dreams, and goals is impor tant. However, many American families are at risk of not being able to pay a mortgage, or childcare expenses, or save for college or retire ment if something were to happen to a familys primary income earner.Protection for every familyAccording to a 2013 Pew study, women are the sole or primary breadwinners in a record 40 percent of U.S. households. LIMRA also recently reported womens life insurance coverage is only 69 percent of the average coverage on men. Whether they work in or outside the home, we challenge women to value their worth and get life insurance coverage so they can protect their familys nances if something were to happen, Tidwell added.F our ways life insurance protects families1. Pays your debts. If something happens to you, life insur ance can help pay off debts such as a mortgage, credit cards, auto, or other loans. Consider life insurance as part of your nancial plan. 2. Covers daily living expenses. Dont forget daycare, tuition, grocery, and energy bills. According to LIMRA, in 2011 nearly two-thirds of nancial decision-makers admit they would have trouble paying everyday bills within a few months of a spouse dying prematurely. 3. Helps save for the unexpected (and expected). Many dif ferent life insurance policies have cash savings options to help pay for expenses such as college tuition, weddings, or starting up a business. Look for permanent or whole life policies with cash value accumulation options. 4 Pays for funeral expenses. No one likes to leave a family with expensive funeral costs. The average funeral costs about $7,000, as estimated by the National Funeral Directors Associ ation in 2012.How much life insurance do you need?Talk to a life insurance professional to determine the life insurance coverage thats best for you, as well as nding out about retirement savings and how much to save for college expenses.

B2 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, June 27, 2014 www.newssun.com PUZZLE CORNER Solution on B6 DEAR ABBY: I have been seeing my boyfriend for five months. He still has some of his ex-girlfriends lingerie in his dresser. When we first got involved, he showed it to me and asked if I wanted any. I said no thanks. Now that Im more invested in the relationship, Id like him to get rid of it. He is currently out of town, traveling for a month. Would it be inappropriate for me to throw away these trinkets without consulting him? SETTING BOUNDARIES IN ARIZONA DEAR SETTING BOUNDARIES: Yes, I think it would be inappropriate. Although your boy friend will probably tell you to go ahead and get rid of it if it bothers you, it would be more respectful if you clear it with him first. DEAR ABBY: I was recently told by a neighbor that if he wasnt married, he would make a pass at me. It made me feel kind of bad, especially the next day when I saw his wife. My niece said I shouldnt feel bad because it was a compliment and I should be glad I still attract attention at 60. My feeling is, if you think about it -its infidelity. Am I wrong or too stringent in my thinking? OLD-FASHIONED LADY IN OREGON DEAR OLDFASHIONED: I think what your neighbor said was less infidelity than lust in his heart. But in a sense, he did make a pass because when he said what he did, he signaled to you that he could be interested. Cut him some slack this time and chalk it up to having been paid a compliment. But if he says it again, tell him it bothers you because you like his wife and think its insulting to her.Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Featuring the entire original ensemble, including Kevin Hart, as well as several new additions to the cast, Think Like a Man Too is a frantic, overstuffed follow-up that, with its Las Vegas setting, more closely resembles a Hangover sequel than its relatively restrained predecessor. While the film seems poised for major box-office success, it mainly squanders the talents of its talented cast and is bound to test the patience of more discriminating audiences. Each of the first films four couples are again facing relationship issues. Mamas boy Michael (Terrence J) and single mother Candace (Regina Hall) are about to get married, much to the consternation of his overbearing mother, Loretta (Jenifer Lewis). Newlyweds Jeremy (Jerry Ferrara) and Kristen (Gabrielle Union) are at odds over her desperate desire to get pregnant. Laurens (Taraji P. Henson) and Dominics (Michael Ealy) relationship is threatened when she receives a lucrative job offer that entails moving to New York. And Mya (Meagan Good) is unable to get over her discomfort with Zekes (Romany Malco) reputation as a player, especially when hes greeted in his old stomping grounds as Zeke the Freak. Also on hand are the groups dorky friend Bennett (Gary Owen) and his fashion-challenged wife, Tish (the reliably amusing Wendi Mclendon-Covey); Myas best friend, Sonia (La La Anthony); and Michaels former fraternity brothers Isaac (Adam Brody) and Terrell (David Walton). And of course theres Cedric (Hart), the height-impaired lothario now on a trial separation from his shrewish wife, Gail (Wendy Williams) who mistakenly assumes the role of Michaels best man for the wedding and impulsively books a lavish hotel suite, complete with a private British butler, that he thinks is $4,000 a night but actually costs 10 times that. If that description seems over whelming, the film, which juggles so many characters and situations that its exhausting simply trying to keep up, is no less so. Director Tim Story and screenwriters Keith Merryman and David A. Newman seem mainly intent on exploiting the Vegas setting to the nth degree, with the proceedings practically coming across as a paid advertisement for Caesars Palace. Hart is clearly the dominant presence with his motormouthed line delivery and manic physicality, but while he scores plenty of laughs, hes also forced to per form such embarrassing scenes as a Risky Business parody in which he frenziedly dances around his hotel suite in his underwear. The rest of the action is divided between so many characters that few of the performers manage to make much of an impression, with the exception of Lewis as the domineering mother who enjoys a one-night stand with the suave, smooth talking Uncle Eddie (Dennis Haysbert). Making a token nod to its literary inspiration with relationship-oriented narration by Hart that barely makes an impression, the film relies on such cliched plot elements as the men reluctantly joining an amateur male stripper contest in an attempt to make enough money to pay for the hotel suite much to the surprise of their women who have ventured to the club for a bachelorette party. Theres also the requisite comic shopping montage, and a faux music video in which the distaff castmembers lip-sync to Bell Biv DeVoes 1990 hit Poison. The expected celebrity cameos include Drake and boxer Floyd Mayweather, with the latter making Mike Tyson seem a comic genius by comparison. Kelsey Grammer also shows up for a couple of scenes, to little effect. Think Like a Man Too, a Sony Pictures release, is rated PG-13 by the Motion Picture Association of America for crude sexual content including references, partial nudity, language and drug material.

Friday, June 27, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B3 www.newssun.com HEALTHY LIVING Dear Pharmacist: Ive had fibromyalgia for the last 8 years, and I take Lyrica, Hydrocodone and citalopram for medicine. My local pharmacist said those are used to treat pain and depression but I want to make sure with you. And also, Id like to know what natural alternatives I have. S.D., Gainesville Answer: Fibromyalgia affects millions of people worldwide. In latin, the term describes pain in the muscles and fibrous tissue. The muscle pain and tender points can become rather painful, and sometimes disabling but I believe there is an underlying cause, perhaps infection, nutrient deficiencies, mitochondrial dysfunction, the drug mugging effect of medicines and more. Ill elaborate shortly, but you asked me to confirm the uses of your medicines. The Lyrica (pregabalin) is used to soothe nerve pain and can make you drowsy. So can the hydrocodone which is used to reduce a pain chemical called Substance P and the citalopram (Celexa) is classified as an antidepressant but thats not necessarily how its being used. Sure, it lifts a brain neurotransmitter called serotonin, which improves mood and reduces pain. Antidepressants that improve levels of both serotonin and norepinephrine may be even more effective. My point is this class of drugs is often used to relieve pain, not necessar ily for depression. All three require prescription. The cause of muscle pain varies greatly from person to person. Try not to concern yourself too much with the name of your disease or your diagnosis because the labels you take on as an identity make it harder for you to overcome. Just think in terms of having symptoms, rather than diseases, its more pleasant. The following are some known causes for muscle pain and if you can find out the cause you can address it. With the help of a conscientious practitioner and state-of-the-art blood tests, find out if you have:InfectionsPathogens known as EBV, CMV and HSV are known to hide in the body and cause muscle pain. Some cause chicken pox and shingles. Lyme disease, Bartonella, Babesia, Hepatitis C, coxsackie and parvovirus may cause terrible muscle pain. Magnesium deficiencyThis causes widespread muscle pain. This nutrient is depleted by coffee, and The Pill, certain menopause medications, antacids, acid blockers, steroids and 200 other drugs! Taking high-quality magnesium supplements along with malice acid (derived from green apples) can support muscle health. Selenium deficiency This can cause thyroid disease as well as muscle pain. Improving selenium can reduce thyroid antibodies and support immune system health. CoQ10 deficiency Over 300 drugs are drug muggers, among them statin cholesterol reducing medications. When you are CoQ10 deficient, your muscles can spasm, become weak and hurt badly. There are more causes (and solutions) so if youd like to receive a more comprehensive version of this weeks column, please come to my website and sign up for my free newsletter, Ill email it to you next week. The take home message today is that fibromyalgia may be correctable if you find out what the underlying cause is, so dont resign yourself.

In the 1700s, the English ate four pounds of sugar per person per year. Sweets quickly became popular and by the 1900s they were consumed at 90 pounds per person per year. In the United States in 2005, it is estimated that people consumed 140 pounds per person per year. Saccharin, the rst articial sweetener, was found by accident in the 1870s by a scientist at Johns Hopkins who was working on coal tar derivatives and accidentally tasted one and found it very sweet. Cyclamates were found when a researcher smoked a cigarette contaminated with cyclamates and found it sweet. (He survived both, living until 87.) Splenda (Sucralose) was dis covered when trying to make an insecticide (another accidental tasting) and Aspartame (Equal, NutraSweet) was found in yet another accidental tasting while searching for an anti-ulcer drug. Initially, people viewed articial sweeteners as suspect because they were not natural. Canned fruit was the rst food manufactured using articial sweetener rather than sugar because it was cheaper. During World War II, articial sweeteners became popular when sugar was rationed. It was not until the s and s that diet soda was introduced. In the 1970s, articial sweetener use by dieters took off when Weight Watchers introduced a full line of saccharine sweetened legal foods. There has been controversy about the safety of articial sweeteners from the beginning. Seventy-ve percent of reactions to food additives are due to articial sweeteners. An attempt was made to ban saccharin, but was stopped by what a congresswoman -whose term spanned the Civil Rights legislation, the Vietnam era and Watergate -described as the single most protested issue she had ever experienced. Cyclamates were banned in the United States, but not Europe, in 1969 after they caused cancers in lab rats. Aspartame was approved by the FDA, then pulled off the market when it was shown that most of the safety studies were suspect. Donald Rumsfeld became the head of Searle, the manufacturer of aspartame, and it was returned to the market. Data suggest that those with migraine or mood disorders can be worsened by Aspartame. All of the other studies are inconclusive as to the safety of articial sweeteners. There are several studies that showed substituting diet drinks for sugary drinks will not help weight loss and may actually cause weight gain. One eight-year study showed that the more diet drinks consumed, the higher the body mass index (BMI -a measure used to adjust weight for height). This is probably due to triggering, but not satisfying hunger cravings. Articial sweeteners are probably safe in small amounts for those such as diabetics who need to avoid sugar. But if you are dieting, then you are probably better off drinking water or other unsweetened beverages.Dr. Diana D. Carr treats patients at The Hand & Shoulder Specialists.

Dr. Diana CarrGUEST COLUMN The carcinogen stigma that has been attached to saccharin for years has been lifted by the government. Saccharin has been taken o the list of cancer-causing agents because further studies have not backed up early evidence against the articial sweetener. But youre still better o drinking water.

Choir and Bell Choir practice on Wednesday; Bible studies through out the week. 471-1999; sebringemmanuelucc.com.P LACES T O WO RSHIP Two boys were being chased across a field by a goat. It seemed they would not make it to the fence and over it in time, so one boy hollered to the other, Why dont you start praying? What should I say? asked the second boy. Pray that prayer your dad says before you eat, came the reply. Out of breath and almost overrun by a goat, the second boy cried out in a loud voice, Father, make us grateful for that which we are about to receive! Prayer is a wonder ful thing, but very often it used only in times of desperation when we feel that there is nothing else left to do. Many times, we resort to prayer when we see no other alternative. Instead, we should look for the opportunities to go to God in prayer whenever we are able. Paul wrote to some Christians in 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is Gods will for you in Christ Jesus. As a Christian, I understand the power and the necessity of prayer. I also understand that God is always faithful in answering my prayers. At the same time, however, I know that God does not always answer my prayers in the ways that I want Him to. He answers them according to what He determines is best for my life. I just need to remember that He knows more about what I truly need than I do. So, how does one pray? And, can anyone pray to God? Does He listen to every prayer that is offered? In the coming weeks, we will try to answer these and other questions. In the meantime, know that a man without prayer is like a car without wheels he is going nowhere!Kevins Komments is written by Kevin Patterson and presented by the Sebring Parkway church of Christ assembling at 3800 Sebring Parkway, Sebring, FL 33870.

Michael Vick was sentenced to 23 months in Federal prison and 3 years probation for his part in a dog ghting ring. Yet, some three thousand human lives will be taken in our country today! TakenAborted Killedwith no LEGAL consequences! This slaughter has been described as a modern holocaust. Deity has always respected the value of human life. Whoever sheds mans blood by man his blood shall be shed; for in the image of God He made man (Genesis 9:6). You shall not murder (Exodus 20:13). [Murder-to break or dash in pieces; to kill, to slay, in a violent unjust manner; to murder; never applied to the slaying of brute beasts-Wilsons OT Word Studies] These six things the Lord hates, yes, seven are an abomination to Him: a proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood (Proverbs 6:16,17). But the cowardly, unbelievers, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with re and brimstone, which is the second death (Revelation 21:8). Abortion providers are careful not to call what they are aborting baby, infant or child but POC (product of conception), etc. but the Bible calls it what is a child, a babe. And it happened, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, that the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was lled with the Holy Spirit (Luke 1:41; note verse 44 also). And this will be the sign to you: You will nd a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger (Luke 2:12). Babe, brephos is the word used to describe the child in the womb and the child in the manger. Vines Complete Expository Dictionary-brephos denotes an unborn child; a new born child, or an infant still older. Inspiration makes no distinction between the pre-born and post-born child! Consider the following facts: there is a heart beat 18-25 days after conception; by two months, a heart beat can be heard by a doctor and brain waves can be recorded; the unborn can hiccup, suck thumb, sleep/awake, responds to touch, pain, cold sound and light. How many dead people can do all these things? If the thing in the womb is not alive, why abort? Just leave it alone! If forced abortion would be murder, why does consent make it not murder? Does being an unwanted pregnancy make it not murder? Consistency where art thou? We stand appalled over Adolf Hilters murder of 350,000 unfit people in Nazi Germany and the extermination of six million Jews and the 3,000 innocent people murdered on 9-11 and rightly so! As a nation, we shake our heads at news of mass killings in schools and such like and ask What is wrong? Since January 22, 1973, when killing the unborn was legalized in the United States of America, 43,000,000 (that is not a typing error) children have been murdered, i.e. butchered by abortion! Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a disgrace to any people (Proverbs 14:34).Frank Parker can be contacted a t email@example.com.
