County Commissioners approved a budget amendment Tuesday. Among other cost centers, the money comes from unallocated rollovers from the countys Capital Financial Strategy fund. That is money accrued from projects, both this year and last, year that came in under budget. Also in the pot is $600,000 from a $900,000 reserve in the Recreation & Parks Advisory Committee fund as well as some $2.7 million that had been set aside for the HCSOs planned Property & Evidence/Crime Scene building. The property and evidence facilities will now be incorporated into the planned new 42,000-square-foot facility, set to go up on a pair of lots behind the public defenders of ce in downtown Sebring. To further enhance savings, County adds $4.4 million to sheriffs building fund BY KIRSTEN SCARBOROUGH NEWS-SUN INTERN A traditional game retailer that allows customers and club members to play with the stores games and hang out as long as they want in order to socialize and interact with other gamers, is exactly the kind of atmosphere that can be found at The Battle Zone. Its all about the members, said co-owner Josh Cordero. We wanted to create an awesome social environment and a way for individuals to meet other gamers. Cordero is one of six partners who opened The Battle Zone in Sebrings Lakeshore Mall on Wednesday, along with Joe and Sandy Pagoria, Kyle Halverson, James Scott, and Ed Baldridge. Its a place to hangout, a nerd-vana, smiled Cordero. That means its just a place where nerds can be nerds, he said with a giggle.

BY KIRSTEN SCARBOROUGH NEWS-SUN INTERN It was at 10:12 a.m., Thursday morning, that the rst line was drawn by Girl Scout Torie Allen in Sebrings Troop 773 Silver Award Project. After troop leaders Danyle Berish and Brenda Gibson were contacted by the county, regarding a sidewalk that presented safety hazards at the Girl Scout house next door to the county courthouse, Troop 773 began brainstorming a way to preserve it. The sidewalk had been placed at Stepping Stones House at 442 Eucalyptus St. in 1947 and girls from the 1947-1948 chapter had signed it. It was the beginning of February that the girls idea, which they call the Honor Sidewalk, was decided upon and put into action. The four current Cadette members of Troop 773 Mikyla Berish, Casey Pollard, Zoe Stanley, and Torie Allen all began etching the names off of the old sidewalk onto a template that they had constructed. Next, the girls looked up all legible names in hope of contacting those previous Girl Scouts and asking them to attend the event and the next phase of their project.Leaving a lasting mark Katara Simmons/News-SunFormer Girl Scout Sophy Mae Mitchell writes her name in the wet cement Thursday in Sebring.

Actually, it will not be the entire town only the re hydrants in the downtown. The project is part of breast cancer awareness month. They told me there are about 600 hydrants in the city and that is too ambitious of a project, I think, Clark said. Instead, she and her group will do about 100 hydrants in Sebrings historic district. Council members in the City on the Circle gave the OK, if done in cooperation with the Sebring Fire Department. Fire Chief Brad Batz told me we could do this, but we have to be careful not to cover the PSI ratings on the hydrants, she explained.

Commissioners also pressed Sheriff Susan Benton to see if she might be able to help with funding from the law enforcement side. We continue to watch, she said. But most of the grants are for equipment theres no infra structure funding in the cr iminal justice realm. After hearing from Highlands County Parts & Recreation D epar tment Director Vickie Pontius, commissioners moved to take any savings fr om the new headquarters project and put it back into the RPAC fund. The commission gave the go-ahead for the new facility this past February. Actual construc tion on the much-delayed building now repor tedly could be delayed again. High lands County Engineer Ramon Gavarette told commissioners it no w appears that the construction may be pushed back an extra 60 days. Unfortunately, due to reviews and agen da deadlines youll see that per mitting and bidding will end in October. That means that w e won t be able to go out to bid until November or December, putting us about two months in arr ears, he said. To make certain there will be efcient work, Gavarette said there would be a team of construction man agers, including representatives from the S her iffs Ofce as well as the county. Gavarette said he would assume that role, assisted by Utili ties Project Manager Bob Deifendorf and Chastain S killman s Su zanne Hunnicutt. Representatives of the Ar chitects Design Group also r epor tedly will be involved through the entire process. Commissioners Tuesday voted to pay them up to $387,944 for architectural and engineering work. That does not mean the bills are over, since ap parently there still are a gaps to be lled. As the motion passed, B ention took the opportunity to campaign for the extra penny on the dollar sales tax, which helped fund the building and which will be on the primary election ballot in August. This is the most eq uitable tax, she said. O ur community will be crippled in the future if the community does not r einstate the tax. COUNTY FROM PAGE A A 1designated by different colors on the caps of the re plugs. Clark said the program will be done just befor e the annual hy dr ant re-painting program, so they will only be pink dur ing the month of October. The original idea reportedly came from S har on Wallace, who works for the county engineering department. A breast cancer survivor herself, she initiated a similar program last year in cooper ation with the Okeechobee Utility Authority and achieved statewide r ecognition. She told me about this and said We need to do this in Sebring, so I said OK! Clark said. Clark reported ly has signed up a volunteer crew comprised of members of the engineering department and staff from the r adiology department at F lor ida Hospital Heartland Medical Center. N egotiations also ar e underway to get paint and painting supplies donated for the effort. The plan is to have everything ready for the second annual Pink Army Strut, to be held on and around the Circle as part of Breast Cancer Aware ness Month in October. Last year, they dr ew better than 450 participants. This year, organizers hope to top that. We are trying to get people to join the Pink Army, she said.

www.newssun.comFriday, July 4, 2014 | NEWSSS U nN | A5 NEWS-SSUnN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927Romona Washington Publisher publisher@newssun.com Scott Dressel Editor editor@newssun.com VIEWPOINTS ANOTHER VIEW Gov. Rick Scott was demure recent ly when he signed a controversial bi ll extending in-state college tu ition to the children of undocument ed immigrants. Politically he was walking a wobbly tightrope. The Republican governor, who is running for a second term, is bound to take heat from conservative/tea party members who want nothing to do with any legislation that seemingly coddles law-breakers. Illegal aliens, and their children, fall squarely into that category. After opposing the in-state tuition measure, Scott swung around this session and mobilized the support of for mer Republican governors to get the bill past balky conserv ative senators. Last month, he signed the bill in pri vate. No ceremony. No hoopla. No more reason to incite the ire of conservative voters. Fine with us We dont blame Scott for covering his ank on this legislation. It was dicey politically. And the wisdom of his closet signing was only conrmed b y subsequent electoral shellacking of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor at the hands of a tea party challenger whose central issue was Cantors lack of backbone on immigration reform. Ceremonial fanfare aside, though, the very fact that Scott supported the in state-tuition bill could soften his image in the Hispanic community and with middle-of-the-road Florida voters. It withdraws one of the Democrats favorite talking points. And who else will tea par ty Republicans sup port in November? The Obama-hugging, Republican-turned-Democrat? Instead of speaking about the dreamers who will have access to more-affordable tuitions at state colleges and universities, thanks to the new law, Scott star ted talking up an other component of the legislation during campaign stops: The measure that freezes college tuition increases at current rates. However this plays out politically, were pleased with the policy result. Scott deserves credit for not toeing a rigid ideological line. He did the right thing. The bottom line is, any student who works hard enough to graduate from high school in Florida should have the same college opportunity as the stu dent who sits at the next desk. And at the same in-state rate .A Sun Newspaper Group editorialGlen Nickerson President glen.nickerson@newssun.comScott was right to fulfill the dreamIm confused. I thought July 4 was the day our country de clared independence fr om K ing George III of Great Britain. Actually, according to ConstitutionFacts.com, thats not so. The Con tinental Congress declared independence fr om G reat Britain on July 2, 1776. Then why do we celebrate our independence on the Fourth every year? Is that when w e star ted the American Revolution? That is a common misunderstanding, as well. The American Revolution began in April 1775, mor e than a y ear earlier. Im stumped. Was the Fourth the day Thomas Jefferson wrote the rst draft of the Declaration of Independence? Nope. Thomas Jeffer son wrote the rst draft in J une 1776. Also Jefferson didnt write the D eclar ation alone. He didnt? I always thought he was the sole author. A common misconception. In fact, the C ontinental C ongress appointed a ve-person to write the Declaration. It included Jeffer son, Benjamin Franklin, J ohn A dams, Robert Livingston and Roger Sher man. H ow about that. Though Jefferson wrote the rst draft, it was changed 86 times by other members of the committee and oth er members of the Continental Congress. I nteresting, but what the heck happened on July 4? That was the day that the Continental Congress, after two days of discussion and debate, agreed on the nal wor ding of the D eclaration of Independence. And that was also the day members of the Continental Congress signed the document and sent it off to old Georgie? Actually, they didnt sign the Declaration un til Aug. 2, 1776. Nonetheless, July 4, 1776, became the date that was included on the nal handwr itten draft, and that is the date people associate most with our independence. Interesting stuff, but when did the Fourth of July become a national holiday? Well, for the rst few decades after the Dec laration was signed, our y oung nation didn t celebrate its independence on any date. Believe it or not, by the 1790s the D eclaration would become controversial, and some had no desir e to celebr ate it. Two decades after it was signed, it became controversial? Bitter partisan con icts existed then, as they do no w ConstitutionFacts.com says that the D emocr atic-Republicans, who admired J efferson and the D eclaration, argued with the other par ty the Feder alists, who thought the D eclar ation was too pro-French and too an ti-British. O ur politicians havent changed much, have they? In 1817, 41 years after the Declaration, John Adams complained that Americans were unin terested in their past. B y the 1820s and 1830s however, new parties rose to power that considered themselves inheritors of Jefferson and the D emocr atic-Republicans, says ConstitutionFacts.com They cir culated copies of the Declaration, which featured July 4, 1776, as the day it was naliz ed. The sound like modern-day tea partyers! Then something else happened that would further cement July 4 in the minds of many. Both Thomas Jefferson and John Adams would die on July 4, 1826, ex actly 50 years after July 4, 1776. Thats some interesting stuff! I n any event, over the years, Americans began celebrating Americas independence on the Fourth. Finally, in 1870, almost 100 years af ter the Declaration was wr itten, the C ongress declared July 4 to be a national holiday. Things sure do move slowly in Washington. This Fourth of July will mark the 238th an niversary of the Declaration, a fascinating document that opened our countr ys doors to life, liberty and the pur suit of happiness and tr emendous oppor tunity for millions. W e surely have had a good run. I hope we can keep it going. We can keep it going so long as all Americans understand the unique ness of the American exper iment and what makes it work. It all begins with our Declaration, which we can all lear n mor e about.Tom Purcell, author of Mis adventures of a 1970s Child hood and Comical Sense: A Lone Humorist Takes on a World Gone Nutty! is a Pitts burgh Tribune-Review hu mor columnist and is nation ally syndicated exclusively by Cagle Cartoons Inc.

A6 | NEWSSS U nN | Friday, July 4, 2014 www.newssun.com displays, board games and much more, including an area behind their counters wher e members of the XII Legion Club, as well as others can play and explore games. Its not about whats in the front part of our shop, but the back part, where our members can come out, play, and be themselves, explained Baldridge. Many of the prod ucts within the store have been donated b y club members, other gamers associated with The Battle Zone, and individuals within the community. This place is very family oriented and attracts people of all ages. The communi ty has really opened up to it, with the shop being able to offer its customers a variety of products, said visiting gamer Jerry Beshiri. Husband and wife duo and co-owners, Joe and Sandy Pagoria, both agreed that the shop far exceeded their expectations, once a few minor kinks were worked out. They have already seen a need to expand in the future. We plan to be here long term. Since weve opened and seen the communitys response, we know well eventu ally have to expand to allow for enough r oom for gaming, explained Sandy. Eventually we even want a sort of gamer widow area, as we like to call it, wher e a wife can come and hang out, read a book, do her crafts, or watch television, while her husband is here gam ing, said Joe. The B attle Z one emphasized its interest in its customers and fellow gamers with a desire to hear their ideas r egar ding new games for the shop. We want this to be a place for kids to come and play so that they stay out of trouble and also be education al. Some games incor porate history, social skills and math tactics without players even realizing it, explained Joe. The Battle Zone is open from 10 / a.m. to 9 / p .m. Monday through Saturday and from 12-6 / p .m. Sunday. Sometimes, were even here until later than we usually close, just because ourselves or other gamers get caught up in a game. Our Friday Night Major events sometimes last until 2 or 3 / a.m., ex plained Baldridge. All six co-o wners have known each other and gamed with one another for y ears Baldridge, who previously and individually o wned the The Battle Zone in Avon Park, decided to make the move to Sebring for a bigger space and that s when the other ve co-owners joined his team. As Baldridge stood at the stores entrance greeting customers and gamers, two children ran in smiling, asking their mother to take a photo of them with coowner Joe Pagoria, who was dressed up in a Darth Vader costume. Look at them smile; thats really what its all about here, said Baldridge, as a smile spread across his face. The Battle Zone has a second location in Winter Haven at 90 Spirit Lake Road.

Jahna Concrete was used to get the new sidewalk put into place, then Jim my Baker donated his time and pump system to actually lay the new walkway since a concrete truck was too big to t on the Girl Scouts property. The name etches from the old sidewalk were then used Thurs day for the girls to reference in their placing of them on the new walkway They also added their own names, which were drawn in place with a nail as their writing utensil. I have horrible handwriting, laughed Berish, as she stepped away from the fresh ly laid concrete and began helping call off names to be in scr ibed. The girls also invited Shoop to sign his name as w ell as the name of the may or that has signed the sidewalk in 1947. B oth Amy G ainey, manager of programming resources at the Ft. M y ers Girl Scout ofce, and Patricia Ramthun, director of corporate communications in Sarasota, were present at the ev ent. Ive been working and talking to the girls through the entire planning process and its so great to see it all come together here now, smiled Gainey. Its well worth the hours it took to com plete this project, Ber ish said. One object that may have caught a by standers eye was a squar e hole that was cut out right in the center of the new sidewalk. Not only was this hole a divider for past and present Girl Scout names, but the spot where a time capsule would be placed and opened again in 25 years. A special topper was made to go over the opening that will match the rest of the sidewalk, but that will be able to be re moved, once it is time explained Gibson. This time capsule includes pictur es, letters of recognition, awar ds newspaper clippings, and other documents the troop felt held importance from the years 1939, 1990, 2001, 2010, and 2014. We found an old time capsule that was hidden in a garage and placed several new things in it, but this one will be under ground so we all know wher e it is , said Pol lard. All four girls as w ell as parents and other troop members, were in high spirits at the event. This is such a great thing. The girls will get to see this when theyre older and come back from col lege and can even br ing their kids to see the names they placed here, gushed one mother to another. A dedication and ribbon cutting cere mony for the sidewalk is in the wor ks and will take place sometime this fall. The tr oop will be extending an invitation community wide for their ev ent. The knowledge that we gained and knowing we helped show respect to the people who had their names on the old sidewalk made me happy to do the proj ect, and I cant wait to come back in 25 y ears to see the time capsule be opened, Pollard said before she had to return to holding the template in place before the breeze could take it. It only took the girls around 12 minutes to copy the names from their rst template before they moved onto the next.

www.newssun.comFriday, July 4, 2014 | NEWSSS U nN | A7 For those of you who are members of B.A.S.S. (Bass Anglers Sportsman Society) and receive their monthly magazine youre probably familiar with Senior Writer Don Wirth, who wr ites a monthly ar ticle called A Day On The Lake Every month, Wirth spends a day on a mystery body of water with a differ ent tour nament bass pro and chronicles the days activities. I think it s probably one of the best ar ticles in the magazine and o v er the years hes shed with virtually all the big names in the sport, as well as the up and comers. Some have fared well, while others, like everyone else have ex perienced days where w e couldn t catch a sh to save our lives. The concept is simple put a professional bass sherman on a lake that he s never shed, give him eight hours to gure out the lay of the land and provide a blow by blow account of how well he does. For many of us, its interesting to read how they sh the unknown waters; what lures they choose under certain conditions and ulti mately, their results. I spoke to Don W irth the other day and suggested to him that he expand his selection of who he shes with to occasionally sh with a regular bass sherman. Obviously, I was thinking of myself. He indicated that I wasnt the rst person to make that sugges tion and that they were consider ing it as an option in the future. If youve never read one of his articles, its a treasure of inside in formation on tactics, str ategy and lur e selection. So I thought I d try something similar, on a smaller scale. As a bass shing guide, I get the oppor tunity to sh with all kinds of sher men. G uys that have been shing all their lives, touring tournament pros, and a few folks whove never wet a line. Ive shed with business executives, doctors, attorneys, accountants and sh ermen from all types of tr ades Salesmen, housewives, children and ev en a customer who insisted on bringing along his yellow lab for a partner. In many cases, Ive had the opportunity to follow up in my col umn with a story about the tr ip some pictures and every once in a while a r eal trophy sh. So heres the deal. Beginning in July, Id like to take one bass sherman out for a single day and chroni cle his results. I f y ou are interested in participating, send me your name and phone number and a little information on yourself, along with your choice of a lake and Ill pick one name a month and well spend a day on the wa ter, hopefully catching some bass. I ll sh along with you and the results will be published in that SPORTsS FISHIN AROUNDDon NortonA Day on the Lake with ... Courtesy photoDon pulled in a pair of seven-pounders in a recent outing.

Fishing the small lakes As most of you know, I spend a lot of time shing Lake Istokpoga. I love the lake and the style of shing that works best ipping and pitching in the reeds and lily pads. But during the sum mer months when the water is dr awn do wn and the weather gets hot, I target many of the smaller lakes in Highlands County. Lakes like Glenada, Jackson, Lotela, Da mon, Josephine, Clay and R eedy all pr ovide completely different types of shing than Lake Istokpoga. Many are deep water lakes with plenty of br ushpiles and sunken tr ees, drop-offs and humps which pr o vide entirely different tactics and strategy to catch bass Last w eek I went to one of my favorite Big Bass lakes, Lake Glenada in Sebring and I wasnt disap pointed. The lake is r elativ ely small and often I dont even start my big motor, preferring to sh just to the left of the boat r amp and work the entire shoreline. Reeds circle most of the lake out to about 3-4 and hydrilla mixed in with the reeds offers a great ipping oppor tunity. O n this tr ip, I dropped the electric motor into the water and ipped a Medlock jig into the reeds alongside the oating r amp. Par for the course, my Speed Spool with 30-lb Power Pro overran and as I picked out the backlash, I noticed my line running out from the edge of the reeds and under the boat. I quickly reeled down and set the hook on a beautiful sevenpound bass. As I slipped the bass into my livewell to re lease later, I couldnt help but think this was gonna be a terr ic day. Four hours later, without another strike, I decided to change tactics. Lake Glenada is ac tually three lakes in one I f you look at a topo map youll eas ily see the three separate bodies of water with high r idges or humps separating them. I chose the long ridge separating the two larger lakes and selected a large Bomb er, Deep Fat Free Shad and began casting to the deep side of the ridge, allowing the deep diving crank bait to plow into the bottom as it rose from 18 to 8 Last y ear on a tour nament I lost one of the biggest bass I v e ever seen on this lure in the exact same spot so my hope was to nd another sh interested in having my Bomber for lunch. After a dozen or more casts, I started thinking about switch ing to a Carolina rig when my crankbait just stopped. My rst thought was a snag, but as I reeled down and applied more pressure, I could feel a sh moving side ways with my lure. C atching a lar ge bass in open water is about as much fun as you can get. After a few strong runs, I brought the sh to the boat and gently placed a net under her. This bass was a twin to the sh Id caught earlier in the day and as I held up the bass side-by-side for a pho to op, I couldnt help but think this was a gr eat day on the water. Motoring back to the boat ramp, I re leased both sh where I d caught the rst one earlier in the day. Hopefully, someone else can enjoy the same thr ill I exper ienced after the sh recuperate.Don Norton is a profession BASS FROM PAGE A A 7 Area League Golf Scores that the namesakes will be the race to watch.

LEMONS FROM PAGE A A 7 TOM WITHERS ASSOCIa A TED PRESS CLEVELAND Sitting on a stage last w eek alongside N o. 1 overall draft pick Andrew Wiggins and new coach D avid B latt, general manager David G r ifn said he hoped this would be a monumental offseason for the C av aliers. Its already been quite a summer. And LeBron James is still out there. Cleveland kept its momentum rolling early Tuesday by get ting All-Star point guar d K yrie Irving to agree to a new, veyear, $90 million contract extension. I r vings deal, completed with a handshake in New York with o wner D an Gilbert, cements a commitment with Cleveland that wasn t always so strong. Im here for the long haul Cleveland!!!! And Im ecstatic!! Ir ving wrote on his Twitter account shortly after the agreement was r eached. Super excited and blessed to be here and a part of something special. F or months Irvings future with the Cavs seemed uncertain. There were reports he wasnt happy in Cleveland as well as speculation the Cavs didnt believe he was a cornerstone player. There were trade ru mors and rumblings the team was not going to offer him the maximum extension. Whatev er differ ences there may have been seem to hav e been worked out. Grifn, who likes to refer to his team as family, has the Cavs united. James surely has no ticed. The C avs hav e waited four years for their chance to lur e the four time league MVP back home. This may be the per fect time. B ecause I rvings extension doesnt kick in until the 2015-16 season, the Cavs have r oom under the salar y cap to pursue free agents They would hav e to move some other contracts if the reports are accur ate that J ames will only sign for a max deal.

L IVING B Friday, July 4, 2014Photo courtesy of Steve Legato he whistling sound of the launch, the bright burst of light, the thundering boom. Theres no better symbol of celebration than reworks. We see elaborate displays at the Olympics, on New Years Eve, at the Super Bowl and, of course, on the Fourth of July. It takes a careful combination of pressure, gunpowder and chemicals to create the pyrotechnics we see today, but reworks actually have been around for centuries. The Chinese are credited with creating the rst reworks thousands of years ago. They believed the loud sound would help ward off evil spirits, so they used recrackers made of a simple form of gunpowder packed into bamboo at weddings, births and other ceremonies. Americans have been marking the Fourth of July with reworks since the nations birth. When the colonies declared their independence, John Adams called for reworks to commemorate the event. But before you sit back in your lawn chair and ooh and ahh over the next spectacle in the sky, take a minute to understand more about the show. Here are some terms to help you talk like a pro, tips to stay safe, a guide to taking the perfect reworks photo and a list of helpful Web sites. And if youre stumped about how reworks work, take a look behind the boom below. LEARN THE LINGOTo start off, check out this glossary of reworks terms. When you watch the display on the night of the Fourth, dazzle your friends by sprinkling a few of these words into your conversation.Aerial shells: Used for large-scale reworks displays, these devices are launched from a mortar and burst in the air.American shell: A cylindrical shell that produces a random pattern of color. Barrages: When several reworks are red simultaneously.Black powder: Also known as gunpowder, when this material is ignited, it propels a shell hundreds of feet in the air.Flash powder: Creates the loud boom of a rework.Loading personnel: Workers at reworks displays who reload mortars.Mortar: A tube used to launch aerial shells. Oriental shell: A spherical shell that produces a symmetrical chrysanthemum shape.Report: The loud sound made when reworks explode.Shooter: Person who ignites the reworks.Spotter: Person who watches the reworks to check for fallen debris and for duds or mis res.Stars: Color-producing chemicals that are packed together into small pellets in an aerial shell. BE CAREFULFireworks are fun, but they can be dangerous. Follow these tips to be sure your celebration stays safe.At public fireworks displays: Obey safety barriers around the ring site. Only trained operators should be near the site. Besides, you wont have a good view of the show from that close to the ring location. If you see an unexploded rework component on the ground, dont touch it. Instead, call the local police or re department to handle it. Leave your pets at home when you attend a public reworks show. The loud noise can hurt animals sensitive ears. When you attend public reworks, leave sparklers and other small legal reworks at home. Theyre not appropriate or safe for use in large crowds.For personal fireworks displays: Never give reworks to children. Adults should always supervise the use of reworks. Use only legal devices. If youre unsure, call your local police department to nd out what can be used in your area. Never try to make your own reworks. Legal reworks should come clearly labeled with instructions. Always read the instructions before setting off the reworks, and follow them carefully. Keep a bucket of water or a hose nearby when lighting reworks. Light one rework at a time. Always point reworks away from people. Light them in an open area away from dry leaves, trash or anything ammable. If a rework seems to be a dud, dont stand over it or attempt to relight it. Soak used reworks in a bucket of water before discarding them. Store unused reworks in a cool, dry place. If someone gets an eye injury from reworks, dont rub the eye or attempt to wash it out. Seek immediate medical attention call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room. he whistling sound of the launch, the bright burst of light, the thundering boom. Theres no better symbol of celebration than reworks. We see elaborate displays at the Olympics, on New Years Eve, at the Super Bowl and, of course, on the glossary of reworks terms. When you watch the display on the night of the Fourth, CAPTURE THE MOMENTA big problem with reworks is that theyre eeting here one minute, gone the next. Kodak offers some suggestions for getting great shots:Use a slow-speed film. Slower lm will keep the shutter open longer and give you more time to catch a good shot. Hold the camera steady. Brace your camera against something stable a table, tree or railing, for example. You can also use a tripodl.Stake out a good spot. Look for a clearing where buildings and tree branches wont obstruct your view. Take a lot of pictures. You never know which ones will come out, and youre never sure when the show will end. So be a little snap-happy, and youre likely to come out with some good shots.Explore your cameras features. Before you head to the show, read through your cameras instruction manual to familiarize yourself with advanced exposure modes.

B2 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, July 4, 2014 www.newssun.com DEAR ABBY: Two years ago I was involved in an unhealthy relationship for me and my children. Despite what everyone said, I gave him the benet of the doubt. He ended up assaulting me and my kids. For two months I struggled with depression, and I admit I wasnt the responsible parent I should have been. Child Protective Services took the children. I hold my self accountable for my actions and my failure. My parents are angry with me because of poor choices I made in the past and treat me like the black sheep of the family. Granted, my mother, brother and I all have issues stemming from the past, but Im tired of playing the guilt card, tired of playing the victim and tired of not having my family back me up at a time when I need their support to regain custody of my kids. I miss my family and what good times we did have. How do I even begin to put the pieces back together on a very broken family? THE BLACK SHEEP DEAR BLACK SHEEP: Fixing your broken family is something all of you must be willing to work on together, or it wont be successful. Because your mother and brother are unwilling, what you need to do is start xing yourSELF. Regaining custody will depend upon your ability to establish your independence, support your children and yourself nancially, and start counseling to deal with your issues so you wont get into another destructive, abusive relationship. It will take work and time, but if you can do it -and I think you can -your mother and brother will respect you for it. And you will be stronger and healthier because you will no longer be so needy.

Contact Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Solution on B6PUZZLE CORNER LOS ANGELES (AP) A serial-killer mystery in which the culprit turns out to be one of Satans minions, Scott Derricksons Deliver Us From Evil adapts the detective genre to an exorcism tale that is very serious about the prospect of demonic possession. Though based on claims made by real-life NYPD officer-turned-paranormal investigator Ralph Sarchie (played here by Eric Bana), the picture is stolen by a fictional character a composite religious figure played with a predictable level of smolder by Carlos star Edgar Ramirez. More aesthetically coherent if less frightening than the directors 2012 hit Sinister, the pic has a shot at surpassing that outing commercially by virtue of its appeal to devout Catholics. That audience will find Evil very respectful of their faith, though its nods to religion are genre-appropriate and never preachy enough to alienate the average horror fan. Sarchie, a cop who covers the South Bronx with partner Butler (Joel McHale), is proud of an internal radar that steers him away from mundane radio calls and toward the juicy cases. But an incident in which a deranged mother threw her toddler into the Bronx Zoos lion pit is juicier than usual, with a mysterious, blood-stained bystander disrupting the investigation before vanishing. Still, Sarchie is ready to write the mother off as a gar den-variety psycho even when a Jesuit priest, Ramirezs Mendoza, shows up to insist on a more complicated explanation. Only after other crimes prove to share both tangible connections (tracing to three Marines who had a disturbing encounter during the Iraq war) and super natural overtones does Sarchie admit there may be something to this chain-smoking, whiskey-drinking priests claim. Maybe, the lapsed-Catholic cop starts to worry, the man theyre hunting really is possessed. Enjoyably, this particular case isnt limited to one spirit-controlled victim terror izing his family and friends. Poltergeist-y aftereffects haunt the places and people he has visited even Sarchie, who is plagued by shock-cut hallucinations and whose house has become a very scary place for his young daughter. (Olivia Munn, playing Sarchies wife, tries to comfort the poor girl, but the film ratchets up her bump-inthe-night torment.) The investigation yields some appreciably icky encounters with putrefying corpses and deranged prisoners, which is good considering the sometimes flimsy cop-movie stuff that surrounds the scares. Bulked-up McHale, who acquits himself well in action scenes, gets the kind of jadedly quippy dialogue one can easily imagine him par odying on Community; Munns part could have been scripted by cut-and-pasting any of a hundred other neglected-policemans-wife characters. While the supernatural side of the film suffers a flaw or two continued references to The Doors are superfluous and sometimes chuckle-inducing its central conflict works. Ramirez, shaggy enough to be the Serpico of exorcists but exuding calm wisdom instead of obsessive determination, makes faith look cool. His seriousness enables the movies desire to dig into the mechanics of the climactic exorcism though Sean Harris, drooling and growling and threatening as the possessed man, deserves credit as well. Derricksons FX crew careens along the dividing line between excitement and silly bombast, conjuring hurricane-like forces and gory transformations while the holy man attempts to rescue an innocent mortal from his otherworldly tormentors.

Friday, July 4, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B3 www.newssun.com Dear Pharmacist: I bought aloe vera gel from the pharmacy and it didnt feel good on my sunburn, it actually stung. Can you recommend something else? J.S., Sebring Answer: I bet you bought a gel that contains a few other ingredients and possibly even alcohol because plain, natural aloe vera gel would not do that. It would help. Sunburn pain ranges from annoying to downright disabling if you get second degree burns. Aside from natural anti-inammatory medication (ibuprofen, acetaminophen), here are some natural solutions that could help reduce burning, pain and redness:Tea bagsDont drink them, put six of them into a pitcher of warm (or hot water) and steep for 15 to 30 minutes, and longer if you want. Your goal is to make strong tea because the tannins in the tea are comforting to the skin. Now cool the pitcher of tea with ice cubes or in the refrigerator. Dunk a rag into the tea and make a compress. Do this several times a day for several days unless you have some kind of issue. If youre traveling, you can always wet a tea bag with cold water and apply it to your skin.Lavender essential oilYou can apply this to areas of your skin where it hurts really bad, like around your bikini line, your shoulders, ears, nose or shoulders.Baking soda bath Fill the tub with cool water and put about 4 to 6 heaping tablespoons of baking soda in it. This soothes your skin but only soak up to 20 minutes, no more. If you soak too long, youre going to dry your skin too much and add to your misery. You dont have to take a bath, you can make a thin paste out of baking soda and water (optional two drops of lavender essential oil) and apply to your skin until it dries, then gently rinse off.OatmealIve not had good luck by it but some people swear by this trick. Fill up the bath with cool water and put in one or two cups of uncooked oatmeal and soak for 15 to 30 minutes. You can use cooking oatmeal, or a prepared commercial product called Aveeno sold online and at pharmacies. Dont shower after it, just pat your skin dry.Suzys Sunburn Spritzer Find a spray bottle and mix 2 ounces of distilled water with ve drops of essential oils of lemon, lavender, calendula and frankincense (boswellia). If you dont like one of those scents you can substitute Roman chamomile, which is another skin soother.PreventionCarrot seed oil mixed in with your natural sunscreen is helpful. Astaxanthin taken orally has been clinically shown to reduce damage to the skin from ultraviolet radiation. Other dietary supplements that are skin protective include vitamin A, E and D, as well as resveratrol. Forget fashion, cover up your skin with clothes if youre prone to sunburn. Who cares if you have a T-shirt on in the pool?! Suzy Cohen is a registered pharmacist and the author of The 24-Hour Pharmacist and Real Solutions. For more information, visit www.suzycohen.com. This information is not intended to prevent, treat, diagnose or cure your condition.Get rid of sunburn pain Suzy CohenDEAR PHARMACIST METROThere are many ways to help soothe the sting of a sunburn, but the best way is to avoid getting burned in the rst place.Fun foot fact: Even our own President Obama has foot problems. According to his Presidential Health Exam, Obama experiences recurrent plantar fasciitis of the right foot. This condition is a very common cause of heel pain, typically occurring in adults ages 40 to 60 (the president is 52). Plantar fasciitis happens when the thick, protective ligament that runs from the heel bone to the base of the toes, called the plantar fascia, develops small tears and becomes inflamed due to repeated stress. Perhaps it is due to all the basketball Obama plays, as it is well-known that he frequents the basketball courts. This painful heel condition is well-known for giving basketball players a hard time. If you play basketball you may have developed plantar fasciitis due to overuse and repetitive trauma. Professional basketball players are used to moving their feet at a fast pace, resulting in the arch muscles and ligament to work harder. In addition, jumping increases the bodyweight force that the foot has to absorb by several times. Plantar fasciitis occurs in other sports besides basketball. Non-athletes can develop the condition as well, with approximately 10 percent having a bout with the condition at some point in ones life. Causes for plantar fasciitis may include: obesity, flat feet, repetitive trauma, tight Achilles tendon, and/ or poor shoe choice. There are several methods you can use to reduce your pain experienced by plantar fasciitis: Treatment might include oral or injectable anti-inflammatory medication. Use ice on your heel to reduce inflammation. You can also roll a frozen water bottle under the arch of the foot for 10 minutes. Remember, you dont want to stretch the tendon when its ice cold, so make sure you do the stretching before. Freeze a golf ball and and roll it under the foot, starting from the front and working your way back. Put pressure on each spot -the medial, center, and lateral positionsfor 15 seconds before moving to the next area. Then, roll the ball back and forth over the entire foot. Wear night splints, they gently stretch the plantar fascia ligament and Achilles tendon and keep them from getting tight during the night. Do stretching and strengthening exercises. Exercises for stretching the Achilles tendon and plantar fascia will increase their flexibility. Exercises to strengthen the muscles of the foot will help support the ankle. One that you can try is propping your toes up against a wall, keeping your arch and heel flat so the toes stretch. Hold for a count of 10. Repeat 10 times three or four times per day. Remember your feet and dont be left out of all the fun this summer because of a sore foot! If the President of the United States of America can make the time to get his feet checked out by his doctor then so can you! Even the president isnt immune from foot problemsDr. Olga Garcia Luepschen and the Gentle Foot Foot Care Center are located on U.S. 27. If you have any questions about foot problems call (863)-314-9255 or go to ww.gentle footcarecenter.com. This information is not intended to diagnose, treat or cure your condition. Olga LuepschenFOOTPRINTS President Barack Obama enjoys playing basketball, which may have been a factor in his developing plantar fascitis in his foot.

I also asked some specic questions about prayer that need some answers. One was, How should we pray? Jesus taught His disciples the answer to this very question in Matthew 6:9-13. He said, After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. Let us examine some lessons from this passage. First, notice that Jesus taught us to pray to the Father. He did not teach in this model prayer to pray to anyone else. That is why we do not pray to Moses, Abraham, Mary, Peter, Paul or one of the other apostles. There is no doubt that these were good people. Nevertheless, they were just people -like you and I. They were not then and are not now God. Therefore, it is always right for us to pray to the Father as Jesus instructed and always wrong for us to pray to anyone who is not God as man might instruct. Second, Jesus taught us to respect and revere the Father. Some religious men today want us to do the same with them. It might be a shock to their ego, but these men are not God, either. That is why we should not address any man as Reverend. Psalm 111:9 declares of God that holy and reverend is His name. Thus, when we pray, we pray with humility, rather than ego, as we approach the Fathers throne. Third, Jesus taught us to pray that the Fathers will be done. Most all of us would rather the Father had done our will at one time or another, but this was not the attitude of Jesus. He taught that our lives should be given over fully to God to obey always His will and never our own. Fourth, Jesus taught us to ask for the things that we need. These might be earthly needs, and they might be spiritual needs. In this prayer, Jesus specically addresses the spiritual need of forgiveness. When we pray, we should always ask God for forgiveness. Why? Romans 3:23 reads that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Therefore, we should take every opportunity to ask God to forgive us of any and all sin in our lives. Finally, Jesus taught us to ask the Father for guidance. God will always lead us in the paths of righteousness. The question is: Will we follow? Often people blame God for the predicaments in which they nd themselves, but we must all remember that God does not place us in the midst of sin. We place ourselves in sinful situations by the choices we make. Next week, we will fur ther examine other questions concerning prayer, such as: Can anyone pray to God? Does He listen to everyone? Will He answer any prayer that is offered? See you then!Lessons from the model prayer Kevin PattersonKEVINS KOMMENTS Kevins Komments is written by Kevin Patterson and presented by the Sebring Parkway church of Christ assembling at 3800 Sebring Parkway, Sebring, FL 33870. Find them on the internet at www. sebringcoc.com, or e-mail us at sebringparkway@sebringcoc.com. The Model of models, when speaking of John, declared that among those born of woman there has not risen anyone greater than John. (Matthew 11:11) Jesus obviously had sound reasons and evidence for making such a statement and those could include Johns bold preaching, humble servant attitude and fullling his Divine mission. Faithful to mission Zacharias, Johns father, declared in Luke 1:76, And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High; for you will go before the Lord to prepare His ways. When John began preaching, he was aware of his Divine mission to preach, Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand (Matthew 3:2). Priests and Levites from Jerusalem asked him, Who are you? and he replied, I am a voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord as Isaiah the prophet said (John 1:19,23). Through the whole course of his life/ ministry among many temptations, he never lost sight of his mission and rejoiced in its fulllment. He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegrooms voice. So this joy of mine has been made full (John 3:29). Humble servant The description of John in Mark 1:6 was that of humility, John was clothed with camels hair and wore a leather belt around his waist, and his diet was locusts and wild honey. This outward sign was manifested more importantly inwardly, After me One is coming who is mightier than I, and I am not t to stoop down and untie the thong of His sandals; This is He on behalf of whom I said, After me comes a Man who has a higher rank that I, for He existed before me: A man can receive nothing unless it has been given him from heaven; He must increase, but I must decrease (Mark 1:7; John 1:30; 3:27, 30). This model servant was remembered many years later by the apostle Paul in recalling Johns humbleness in Acts 13:25. John was never in search for such human accolade as Reverend, Father, Holy One, Senior Pastor, etc. Bold preaching Early in Johns preaching, boldness surfaced in his encounter with religious leaders, But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming for baptism, he said to them, You brood of vipers, who warned you to ee from the wrath to come? Therefore bear fruit in keeping with re pentance; and do not suppose that you can say to yourselves, We have Abraham for our farther; for I say to you that from these stones God is able to raise up children to Abraham (Matthew 3:7,8). John challenged the status quomay his tribe increase today! We learn later in Luke 7:30, But the Pharisees and the lawyers rejected Gods purpose for themselves, not having been baptized by John. Bold preaching brings forth negative and positive results. When John told King Herod, It is not lawful for you to have your brothers wife (Mark 6:18), Herod had John arrested and bound in prison and Herodias, Herods wife, had a grudge against him. This grudge eventually led to Johns death. (Matthew 14:1-12) But, there was also the positive effects of Johns great preaching, Then Jerusalem was going out to him, and all Judea and all the district around Jordan; and they were baptized by him in the Jordan River, as they confessed their sins (Matthew 3:5,6). Jesus further commends John in that he testified to the truth and was a lamp that was burning and was shining. (John 5:33,35) Being an example or model is unavoidable good or bad, positive or negative, light or darkness never neutral!John the Baptizer: model exemplaryFrank ParkerGUEST COLUMN Frank Parker can be contacted at frank parker27@gmail.com.
