According to a report from Flurry Analytics, says The Washington Posts Style Blog, the average mobile consumer checks his phone 150 times a day. A mobile addict is de ned as someone who launches apps more than 60 times a day 10 times as often as the average smartphone user. The number of addicts is growing rapidly. Flurry Analytics said there were 79 million mobile addicts in March 2013. By March 2014, the number had soared to 176 million. Mobile addicts are growing at a rate ve times that of regular users. And that is causing many people a bit of grief. A smartphone, for those of you over 55, is a cellphone that is also a minicomputer. It allows people to search the web, run a variety of applications and text (the act of pressing both thumbs against a miniature keypad to bastardize the English language). According to Psychology Today, Many suffer from anxiety if they lose their phone, even if only for a few minutes. We rely on it to do everything from saying I love you to breaking up, from checking bank balances to investing, from sharing photos of the grandchild to sexting. We can carry out a plethora of daily tasks, right from the palm of our hand. So important have smartphones become, psychologists have coined a name for the fear of being without them: nomophobia. Psychology Today cites a list of symptoms: You are anxious whenever your phone is not in your possession. You constantly check your phone for texts and feel compelled to respond immediately. You are halfway to the store, realize you forgot your phone and turn around to go get it. Some people are suffering from phantom cellphone vibration. This is when they think their phone is vibrating and it turns out to be a false alarm. Havent we all encountered a person who is sitting right across from us, but is so focused on checking Facebook or texting friends, he or she doesnt hear a word you say? Dont get me wrong technology has brought about awesome improvements to my life. I have quick and easy access to tremendous amounts of information. Thanks to my computer and smartphone, Im able to make a good living from my home. But as we continue to gain mastery over our physical world, maybe we need to refocus on our emotional and spiritual worlds. I think about the way my grandfather lived in the 1920s and s. Houses were close together then. Large porches were built on the front, and people sat out at night and talked. On Saturdays, my grandfather and his sisters strolled over to their mothers house. They played cards, sang and told stories. But today, we shut ourselves inside air-conditioned homes. Our garages are in the front and our porches are hidden in the back. Heck, many neighbors in transient neighborhoods dont know each other or even say hello. And thanks to our smartphones, we further isolate ourselves in the vacuum of cyberspace communicating electronically with cyberfriends far more often than we do in person. The Style Blog summarized the problems of smartphone addiction with a quote from Nicholas Carr, author of The Shallows. The smartphone, more than any other gadget, steals from us the opportunity to maintain our attention, to engage in contemplation and re ection, or even to be alone with our thoughts. Technological innovation is a wonderful thing, but we just need to keep an eye on it before it allows us to become dull, detached and less able to enjoy genuine interaction with our fellow human beings.

We can only imagine the depth of their loss, and thank them for sharing Guy with us for so many years. He was a true servant leader. Open and approachable, Guy believed in public access to government. Ask anyone to describe him and the answer invariably begins, He was such a wonderful man... We will miss his outlook, his counsel, his experience, generosity and smile. Born and raised in Sebring, Guy was a third-generation Floridian. His grandfather, Guy Maxcy, arrived in Central Florida in the 1920s when he emigrated from Tennessee with his three older brothers. One became a rancher, another a banker, and the third owned a citrus packing company. Guys grandfather became a citrus grower. Over the years the Maxcys became leaders in the community. Guy could have coasted on his familys reputation, but he set out to make a name of his own. After establishing the Maxcy Insurance Group, Guy began his second career of giving back to the community. His volunteer work is legendary he served on a wide variety of boards, from the Library Advisory Committee to the Health Care Council and Rural Health Network and spent 18 years as a county commissioner. From the moment he took of ce as a commissioner back in the day before the government center was built and the county commission met in the jury selection room in what is now the state attorneys of ce he cared about his constituents and the people employed by the county. He once said, Ive always tried to vote the will of the people. Just turned 60, Guy had not begun to slow down. In 2011, when DeSoto County needed a new administrator in dif cult circumstances, he stepped forward helping elected of cials return the county government to order. His unexpected death is a shock. His loss leaves a gaping hole because Guy was more than good company, he was a model of an engaged and caring citizen who got things done. The world could use more people like Guy Maxcy. We will de nitely miss him.Maxcy will be missed by many T1aERE.

It was well received. The directory is located on the chambers Web page at www.avonparkchamber.com with mini-web pages created for members. These then link to web sites created by members for their goods or services. There were a lot of businesses that didnt know how to do it, Trinder explained. They knew they needed to be there but didnt know how. I told them No problem, the chamber is here to help you. Response was good, with businesses report ing the number of hits on their pages had increased. A lot of people are getting run over on the information superhighway and they dont know how to nd stuff. As a result, they call us here at the chamber so well give them the web site and the companys phone number or other infor mation that helps them connect, she said. We get a number of people who say I just cant deal with the Internet. When she took over, Trinder had announced that getting the cham bers nancial situation in order was her rst task, followed by an effort to increase the membership rolls. Both of those items seem to have been ac complished, with membership up by 25 percent, Facebook members up by 31 percent and the number of hits on the chambers site at over 180,000 in the past year. That was more than we had for the oth er Website for the entire time we had it. We have also increased our marketing as far as the Website, our members and the city in general is concerned we have done all of that, she said. One of her rst big tasks when Trinder took over the executive direc tors post last year was the annual banquet that now is the next big event on her schedule. That will be on May 15 at the Jacaranda Ho tel, she said. We wanted to do it in Avon Park and we are going to have a 1920s theme, so it should t perfectly. During the get together the Business of the Year, Director of the Year, Lifetime Achievement Award and Beautication Award will be handed out. Tickets for the event are $40 and are on sale at the chamber ofces on Main Street. In June, the chamber will be hosting Florida State Representative Cary Pigman and Florida State Senator Denise Grimsley. They will report on accomplishments during this years legislative session in what is being called a Tallahassee Wrap-Up. TRINDERCONTINUED FROM A1 BY PHIL ATTINGERStaff WriterAVON PARK A man already under arrest for possession of child pornography is facing enhanced charges in that case. Members of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement found the videos on a USB drive incorporated into an orange wristband. The wristband was found inside the bedroom closet of Jeffrey Alan Weed, 44, of 1738 Crocus Road in Avon Park. Since the USB drive had ve video les on it, he was originally charged in late March with ve counts of possession of obscene material that depicts or promotes children in sexual conduct one count for each video on the dr ive. A further examination of one of the videos has revealed a compilation of numerous videos showing prepubescent girls conducting sexual acts with adult males, as well as preteen girls committing various sex acts with each other. Additional charges may be made after FDLE further examines the thumb drive, reports said. Weeds arrest was part of the National Task Force, Inter net Crimes Against Children (I.C.A.C) Task Force, which investigates internet crimes against children, child pornography and other related offenses. Task force members obtained a search warrant on March 24 for Weeds home, through Curcuit Court Judge Peter Estrada in Highlands County, then ser ved the war rant at 9 a.m. March 25. Ryan Weed, a relative, was at home, reports said. Special Agents Larry Long and Tracey Rousseau identied themselves and told Ryan Weed they had a warrant. A short time later Jeffrey Weed arrived and agreed to be interviewed, reports said. His statements were redacted from reports. The wristband was found in Jeffrey Weeds bedroom closet during the search and a preview of the USB drive found ve vid eo les of children engaged in sexual acts, reports said.

Nell Hays, Sheriffs Ofce public information ofcer, said there had been several convenience store robberies in the Avon Park area over a six-month period from September 2013 to February 2014. After the city saw four in a row, Sheriff Susan Benton began putting the Avon Park armed robbery cases under one detec tive in hopes of similarities creating more leads. Benton also said she reached out to other agencies to see if they had similar robberies. Many communities have rules requiring con venience stores open after certain hours to staff two people in the store or lock the main doors, Benton said. She said in October 2013 that one clerk had avoided a robber by shut ting down the store and locking the doors.

However, the council, acting as the Community Redevelopment Agency Board, didnt discuss or vote on the matter. Deleon had previous ly stated that the citys wastewater settling ponds were only rated by the Florida Department of Environmental Protec tion to take 800,000 gallons per day of treated efuent, while the wastewater treatment plant was currently treating 700,000 gallons per day. While most of that is local customers, Deleon estimated for the NewsSun that the plant in s cal year 2013 processed 20,022 gallons per day in sewage and semi-treated efuent from other cities and commercial sites. The combined rev enue from the outside sources, he said, was $412,125, while the citys direct sewer customers paid a total of $1.5 mil lion during the year to process their daily waste. The plant is rated to process 1.5 million gallons per day, but that growth cannot happen without more capacity. Concerned that running out of capacity at the plant may hurt development, the City Council has given Deleon permission to look at a spray eld and other options to increase capacity. We are in the process of drafting a land purchase agreement for 70 acres for settlement ponds, Deleon said Monday in an email. Once I have a land pur chase contract for the (City) Council to consider, I will bring it forward. It remains a priority on my radar. Whether or not the city uses the airport for a spray eld or purchases 70 acres to build ponds, he said it would be a high-cost project, mainly because of the pipes and pumps needed to send the treated water from the plant near the U.S. National Guard Armory on U.S. 27 to either site. It is about the same distance to move water, Deleon said. I would rather purchase the land than be dependent on the airport; nonetheless, everything boils down to the economics behind the decisions. Deleon presented the option of a spray eld to the Airport Community Redevelopment Agency Advisory Board at its Feb. 17 meeting. Although board member Pat Dan zey moved to approve the spray eld between runways 10/28 and 05/23, pending approval by the Federal Aviation Administration, the motion died for a lack of a second. John Barben, advisory board chairman, has said the board has worked on a master development plan to make the air port an economic engine, and he wants to review any plans Deleon has on a spray eld, to make sure economic initiatives arent hampered. Jerry Wise, board alter nate, has said efuent on the ground would attract bugs, which would attract birds and increase the risk of bird strikes on aircraft. Sprinkler heads on posts could puncture fuel tanks if a plane leaves the runway, Wise said, increasing the risk of re and explosions.

It is being conducted through Survey Monkey and is designed to gain insight into the needs of both businesses and job seekers in the area. Doubleday said the anonymous survey will aid them in developing future training based on what they see. It can be accessed by going to the organizations web site at Ca reerSourceheartland.com and going to the Employers/Business Survey. The participation deadline is May 15. That date will coincide with a Hiring Expo to be held at the CareerSource Heartland center at 5901 US 27 South in Sebring. We will have around 20 em ployers at that event, Doubleday said. Since we will be moving into the slower hiring time of year, we wanted to focus on employers who currently are having difculty ll their year-round open positions. As in the past, veterans will get the rst opportunity, having exclusive access to the oor from 11-11:30 a.m. Then, all job seekers then will be able to talk with employer participants until it closes at 2 p.m. In addition to the employers on site, there also will be the full spectrum of job hunting opportu nities available by using computers at the ofce and talking with CareerSource personnel. Numbers released last month by the U.S. Department of Labor Statistics for March showed that jobless numbers were down just 1/10th of 1 percent from Febru arys report in the county.

JOBS FROM PAGE A1 at the Highlands County Fairgrounds Convention Center. Zwayer then offered thanks for a county where such a prayer service could be held, then prayed for leaders ranging from local to national and nished up by quoting from 2 Chronicles 7:14. If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselv es and pray and seek my face and turn from their wick ed ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land, he read. It was not the last time that the verse would be cited Rev. Ted Moore also quoted the verse while giving a talk about the Christian under pinnings of the United States. Moore pointed to Founding Father Benjamin Franklins call for prayer as the Continental Congress worked on the United Sates Constitution. Former Highlands County Clerk of Courts Luke Brooker, who originated the local observance, was the master of ceremonies. He introduced his pastor Matt Crawford by saying Young, isnt he? A focus on the youth was another ongoing theme, as youngsters from St. Catherine Cath olic Church in Sebring were called up twice, once to help Circuit Court Judge Peter Estrada lead the Pledge of Allegiance at the opening and again at the close to assist Highlands County Facilities Manager David Flowers who led the crowd in singing God Bless America. Crawford called upon Christians to unite regardless of their demographics, pointing to the Apostle Pauls letter to the Ephesians. He talks about unity, Crawford said. It is not based on watering down truth but holding onto truth. Dr. Eugene Bengston, retired, of Bible Fellow ship Church, addressed the youth directly, reecting on his own childhood and visits to the Highlands County courthouse. He then invoked local pastors to be bold. We have become afraid of the system. We need fearless pastors, he said. He urged the crowd to lift up their pastors and told youngsters that they are the hope of the fu ture. We are here to pray for you, he said. Circuit Court Judge Anthony Ritenour closed the proceedings with the benediction reminding the crowd that our rights come from God and not from government and exhorting them to live exemplary lives. Following the Day of Prayer observance, the Highlands Universi ty Preparatory School held an Adopt-a-Leader prayer luncheon. Highlands County Commissioner Jim Brooks was the keynote speaker there, echoing Day of Prayer speakers in noting the steady decline of values and mor als in America. Now is not the time to grow weary, now is not the time to give up, he said, urging audi ence members to pass on Christian principals to their children. He closed his remarks with a passage from Philippians which he cited as a favorite of football star Tim Tebow. Dont be afraid of your enemies; always be courageous, and this will prove to them that they will lose and that you will win, because it is God who gives you the victo ry, he said.

www.newssun.comFriday, May 2, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | A7 SPORTS Whats for dinner? If you are a largemouth bass, the answer might be easy: anything that doesnt try to eat you rst. Thats good news if y ou like to catch bass because with so many food choices, nding a lure that works is sometimes as easy as nding one that looks good to you. Biologists who study largemouth bass sometimes examine the stomach contents of sh to learn more about them. They look at what bass eat to deter mine the health not only of the individual sh, but all the bass that live in the same body of water. According to John Odenkirk, a sheries biologist with the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, there are three things that determine the overall health of a lake or ponds bass population: recruitment, which is how many baby bass grow to adults; growth, or how fast they grow and how healthy they are as they grow; and mortality. In other words, what kills bass? Most of the time, bass do pretty well on their own, but occasionally there is a need to stock forage sh to supplement their food sources. Almost every lake, stream, pond or river has at least some food sour ce that bass will eat since the largemouth bass will eat just about anything. (By the way, if youre worried about that bass that swallowed your bait, hooks generally disintegrate in their stomach, thanks to the strong acid that helps digest food, bones and ns). Odenkirk says what he nds in bass stomachs is limited only to what foods are available in their respective waters, and what they can t in their mouths. Insects, craysh, frogs, lizards, snakes and even baby birds end up on the dinner menu. Bass will also eat each other. The name of the game is survival, and if a bass has to eat another bass in order to live, he wont think twice about it. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission biologist Fred Cross says bass are opportunistic feeders So what they eat is often determined by what swims by. In other wor ds, they eat whatevers available in their area. Hes found eels, snakes, other sh and even baby ducks in bass stomachs Bass also choose their food based on their size. The bigger the bass, the bigger the meal. If they are available, threadn shad are probably the favorite food of largemouth bass. We nd them in bass stomachs more than anything else , says Cross. Shad are softrayed sh, which means their ns arent as spiny as, say, a bluegills. Softrayed sh are easier to swallow. But threadn shad and other shad dont live in every lake or body of water In fact, they need water with plankton in order to survive. Plankton are tiny plants that suspend or oat in the water. Most lakes have plenty of plankton, although water color plays an important part. Lakes with green or light brown tint probably have plankton, but clear lakes dont. Most biologists agree that insects are a vital food source for young bass. Without bugs, baby bass cant grow into big bass. Most lakes have an abundance of aquatic insects living above and below the water. Largemouth bass switch from a diet of mostly insects to a diet of sh and other larger prey when they reach about eight inches long, says Cross. The good news for shermen is they dont have to match real sh and other cr eatur es perfectly to catch bass. Years ago, I lived in Jupiter, Florida and we had What bass eat FISHIN AROUNDDon Norton BY LAUREN WELBORNNews-Sun correspondentThis past weekend, three Highlands County riders loaded up their trailers and headed out to the Tampa State Fair Grounds to compete in the Area E 4-H Horse Show. The show is an annual event, bringing together top riders from DeSoto, Glades, Hardee, Highlands, Hillsborough, Indian River, Manatee, Martin, Okeechobee, Pinellas, Sarasota and St. Lucie. There are many factors that play into the show. Riders have only four classes with the addition of one optional sho wmanship class in which they can compete to earn points. In other shows, the classes are unlimited. In addition, ther e is generally tougher competition and more riders at the Area E show. Tack on the fact that horses and general showing situations can be unpredictable, and it safe to say that this show denitely packs on the pressure. Equestrian sports are not for the faint-hear ted for this reason, yet riders Micaela Buchanan, Morgan Gibbs and Brooke Moon step up to the challenge readily. The three all managed to beat out the competition, bringing home honors. Moon aboard Dont Trump My Ace placed 10th in Hunter Type Geldings, 8th in Jr. Showmanship, and 4th in Jr. Hunter Under Saddle. Buchanan placed 6th in Hunter Type Mares, a class based on the o verall conformation of the horse, with her partner Something Wicked This Way Comes. Buchanan, who is still training her horse, was extremely pleased with her behavior during this event. Micaela needs some time to nish breaking her and getting it together with her. But next year they should be quite the team, shared her proud mother Lisa Buchanan. Gibbs and teammate Detail Express placed 10th in Sr. Hunter Showmanship, 6th in Sr. Horsemanship and 7th in Sr. Hunter Under Saddle. Highlands is a well-recognized county at the event, and these three riders continued to pr ove that legacy with their winnings and overall dispositions.Highlands trio rides proud Courtesy photoMicaela Buchanan, along with partner Something Wicked This Way Comes and 93-year old grandfather Antonio De Oca.

Of course I over-stocked the body of water with plenty of largemouth bass and it nally reached a point where I had to feed them store-bought smelt since theyd eaten everything but each other in the pond. But I used to amaze my friends and neighbors by cutting a small section of a branch and tying it onto my line. As quick as the stick hit the water, a bass would strike it. Once he realized it wasnt food, hed release it only to be struck by another bass. Just remember, bass arent pickytheyll eat just about anything!

LIVING BFriday, May 2, 2014 Horse is fully airborne This is the sequence, based on Stanfords study, of a horse gallop (leading with the right leg).Push off from right foreleg Airborne phase; all four feet drawn together under horse Left rear leg is first to touch ground Support from left rear leg Both rear legs touch groundLeft rear leg lifts; left front leg touches ground Vaulting phase; weight transfers to front left leg, right front leg comes down as rear legs come up Weight rests on right front leg only; sequence repeats1. 6. 11.12.13.14 .15. 7.8.9.10. 2.3.4.5. Illustration by Camille Weber/Lexington Herald-Leader 1There are 320,000 horses in the commonwealth of Kentucky. Only 25 percent are thoroughbreds.2A foal is any baby horse. A lly is usually a female horse younger than 4, although this age might be 2 or 3, depending on the breed. A colt is a male horse younger than 4 with the same caveat. A mare is a female adult horse. A stallion is a male adult horse that is capable of breeding. A gelding is a male adult horse that has been castrated to keep it from breeding.3Ponies are not baby horses. A pony is any of several breeds with a specic conformation and temperament. Ponies have thicker manes, tails and coats and shorter legs than horses. They are never taller than 14.2 hands. (But miniature horses are horses.)4Every horse has its own personality. Just like human children, they can easily get spoiled if they arent properly trained as youngsters. Generally, they like human attention. Theyre vegetarians, so they are not interested in eating you. But they are prey animals, meaning their ight response is well-tuned. It is best because of the placement of his eyes on his head to approach a horse from the side, touch his shoulder gently, then move to be in front of him. You might want to present the back of your hand to his nose so he may smell you. Always ask permission of a horses owner to touch or feed the horse, as some are more dangerous than you might think. Always hold your hand at when presenting a horse with a treat. The treats most likely to please: apples, carrots, peppermints and cookies.5They are measured in hands. A hand is equal to 4 inches. You measure from the peak of the withers (the highest point between a horses shoulder blades) to the ground. Horse size depends on breed. The largest ever was 21 hands. The average is 15.6Horses can sleep standing up. Some choose to lie down, but only if they feel very safe. Studies show that horses can sleep from a few minutes to several hours a day, nabbing their sleep in relatively small allotments throughout a 24-hour period.7They can live to be more than 40 years old, although that is quite rare. The average life span is 25 to 30 years. (You can calculate a horses age in human years by multiplying by 3 and adding 8.)8When a horse is foaming at the mouth, most of the time it is because he is wearing a bit in his mouth that is attached to the reins which helps in controlling the horse. The horses salivary glands respond by producing moisture, which is a good thing. If the horse is relaxed and its head is in the correct position, his saliva will ow, hence the foaming.9Horses come in a variety of colors such as gray, roan, black, brown, buckskin or dun, white and golden, i.e. Roy Rogers palomino Trigger. White thoroughbreds are extremely rare. Additionally, you will nd some breeds with distinctive colors and coat patterns such as spotted Appaloosas, and paints or pintos. Two of the most common colors you will see are bay (brown with a black mane, tail with black and/or white leg markings) or chestnut (reddish tan; can have white socks, stockings and/ or facial markings). A rusty-colored horse is a chestnut. No matter what color, they have no nerves in their manes or tails, so accidentally pulling on them is not painful.10 White fences around horse farms are not code for anything. White was a traditional color, but black paint came into favor because the paint was cheaper and black fences could hold up six or seven years between paint jobs. White fences needed a yearly update. Stallions usually have three-plank fencing; broodmares with babies get an additional plank to keep the little ones from rolling or diving under the lower plank. Some stallion farms dou ble-fence to keep the manly horses from ghting.Bonus fact: The Kentucky Derby is run one time a year, always on the rst Saturday in May. It is considered the most famous horse race in the world. An individual horse no matter how famous can run in the Derby only once because it is open to 3-year-olds only. The purse is $2 million, but the fame is forever. G. GIRTH: Here beats the heart of a champion, loyal worker or loving companion. Racehorses can run up to speeds of 45 mph. The only land animals faster are the cheetah and the gazelle. It was determined after 1973 Triple Crown winner Secretariats death that his heart was about twice the size of an average horses heart.J. SOCKS (left), STOCKINGS (right): Horses wear one, two, three, four or none. They might be black and/or white, depending on their coat color.H. CHESTNUT: Vestige of a prehistoric toe. All horses have them on both inside front and back legs.K. HOOF: Did you know that a horse actually stands on his tippy toes? The horses hoof has evolved from 5 toes to one giant toe. The out side covering is made of keratin, a crack-resistant protein found ably will be dark gray or black. Whether the horse wears shoes or not, he needs his hooves picked and inspected daily, and trim med back about once every 6 weeks to prevent them from becoming too long, frail and uneven, causing them to crack and split, resulting in a lame horse.D. MOOD INDICATORS (ears): Those swiveling ears are great predictors of what hes thinking. Pricked forward means alert and interested, but pinned back watch out.F. WITHERS: The highest point of the horses shoulder. Horses are measured in height at this point in 4-inch increments called hands. The term hands came about in part because the width of the average persons hand was about 4 inches. Ponies are always 14.2 hands tall or shorter.L. BUSINESS END (better known as hindquarters): Caution: damage. Always approach horses from the side because they have a blind spot in the front and back and could startle easily if approached from behind. While most horses will run from danger, kicking with their hind feet is another response to danger. A. EYES: Largest of all land animals. Because horses eyes are set on the sides like all prey animals, they have monocular vision, giving them a blind spot in the front and back. So always approach a horse from the side so you do not startle him.B. BLAZE: Not too hot to touch. Horses might have a variety of facial markings, such as a stripe, star or snip.C. VELVETY NOSE: Great for kissing and soft to the touch, but make sure the horse is friendly because his nose. Did you know you can tell a horses age by the growth, wear and angle of its teeth? If you decide to feed a horse a treat, make the horse doesnt grab your them accidentally. E. MANE: Even on a badhair day, it protects his neck from biting insects.I. LEGS: A foals long spindly legs are almost as long at birth as an adults, allowing him to keep up with his mother and run from predators within hours after birth.

B2 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, May 2, 2014 www.newssun.com PUZZLE CORNER Solution on B4DEAR ABBY: My wife and I both served in the military. When she returned from Egypt 19 months ago, she dropped a bomb on me, saying she didnt want to be married anymore. She said she had settled for second best all her life and thats what she had done with me. She went on to say she knows theres someone better than me out there, and shes going to nd him. All the evidence points to an affair, which she de nies constant trips out of town, emails and phone calls. We are now living paycheck to paycheck. We have no more savings and Im paying all the expens es when it comes to the kids. She retired a year ago and refuses to get a job worthy of her experience. The worst part is, our kids have suffered. We have been sepa rated ever since she got back. She says our kids arent worth her trying to save our marriage. Our close friends and family are still shocked, but no one more than me. It has been a struggle, which almost caused me to have a breakdown. Everything I do now is to lessen the impact on our kids. What advice can you offer me? TRYING TO COPE IN VIRGINIADEAR TRYING TO COPE: Please accept my sympathy. Your marriage is over and you have to ac cept it. If you havent consult ed a lawyer, you should do it NOW to gure out what your responsibility and HERS will be to the children once your divorce is nal. They should be cared for by the parent who is willing and able to give them stability, and the lawyer can help you determine this. From your description of your wife, that would be you, while she searches for someone she deserves. Personal ly, I hope she nds him, because the way she has treated you has been brutal. DEAR ABBY: Im a student in a community college. I enjoy the diversity of the students here; many are adults who are changing careers or getting the education theyve always wanted. One woman in my class has a habit of bringing her toddler with her. I under stand that sitters can be unreliable and child care is expensive, but this dis rupts the class and I know it distracts the mother, as well. She often has to get up mid-lesson when her child needs to use the restroom. I dont want to step on toes or intrude in peoples personal lives, but college is no place for an unruly toddler. How can I han dle this? STUDENT IN NEW YORKDEAR STUDENT: I wholeheartedly agree with you that toddlers do not belong in college lectures where they distract the students. This is some thing that should be discussed with whomever is conducting the class, and if that doesnt x the problem, with the dean. P.S. Some colleges have baby-sitting facilities on campus.Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.Kids collateral damage in wifes war on marriage DEAR ABBYJeanne Phillips Deep into The Amazing SpiderMan 2, my 11-year-old companion was confused about a certain plot point justiably, Id say and demanded an immediate and thorough explanation. Shh, not now. Later! I hissed. Because, though I didnt admit it, I really didnt want to miss an Andr ew Gareld-Emma Stone kiss. And who knew when the next one was coming? With great chemistry, you see, comes great kissing. Lets just say this unequivocally: Whether or not my young Spidey fan would agree, the best thing about the The Amazing SpiderMan 2, the second installment of director Marc Webbs series reboot, is that infectious chemistry between Gareld and Stone. In fact, given that this overstuffed, overly long lm is a sequel to a sequel, and that it spends a gazillion dollars r etelling a story (in 3-D and IMAX) that the world already knows, you could argue that the Gareld-Stone dynamic is the real justication for the whole enterprise. This isnt just because the two happen to be real-life partners though it cant hurt. Gareld is a sensitive actor who brings a quirky blend of intelligence and gooness to Peter Parker, and a welcome hip ster edge to the role that the wideeyed Tobey Maguire didnt have in the earlier incarnation of the Marvel character. As for Stone, shes just so darned charming. And though its again a stretch to imagine her as a high school student, heck, w ell take it. (In fact, Stone is 25 and Gareld is 30, so were just gonna have to give them a pass on this. At least they get their diplomas this time.) Another winning presence is that of Sally Field, touching as the nowwidowed Aunt May. The reliable Field gets one terrically emotional scene with Peter that may have you reaching for a tissue. As for the plot, though, that may have you reaching for a notepad. There are not one, not two, but three villains (at least!) here, and all sorts of backstories something for ev eryone, which means too much. The most important backstory involves Peters parents, and what really happened to them once they abandoned him as a tot (hint: it involves a very fast-paced plane ride). Back on terra rma, we start with an even faster-paced urban chase involving Spider-Man, a hammy, Russian-accented Paul Giamatti, and some plutonium, distr acting Peter/Spidey from Gwen, whos anxiously awaiting Peters arrival at their graduation. Peter does arrive, miraculously, but we quickly learn that the key obstacle to their relationship remains in place: Peters fear of putting Gwen in harms way. Haunted, Peter just cant commit (they always have an excuse, right?) Not surpris ingly, Gwen gets very charmingly annoyed, and kinda sorta breaks up with him. But these two cant stay apart for long. Meanwhile, there are big goings-on at Oscorp, that huge bioengineering corporation headed by Norman Osborn. With Norman on his deathbed, son H arry (Dane DeHaan) Peters old buddy, returns from boarding school. The pale, wiry DeHaan is entertainingly creepy as he descends into desperation. Then theres the unappreciated Oscorp employee Max Dillon (Jamie Foxx). When he falls into a vat of mutant electric eels (OSHA would have a eld day at Oscorp), he morphs into Electro, a glowing monster who can manipulate elec tricity and suck the power from a whole city (Foxx is more convincing as the villain than the self-effacing scientist). Where will it all end? Well, at least two more sequels (to the sequel, to the sequel) are planned, and any number of future confrontations loom. Which of the villains will reemerge to challenge Spidey? Shh, not now. Later!

A British study looked at more than 1,000 hip frac tures. Smoking increased the risk of hip fracture 1.59 times in men and 1.36 times in women. If they quit smoking, the risk for men equaled that of the nonsmoker after ve years. In women, it takes longer. Another recent study showed that the risk of spine fracture was also in creased by smoking. Overuse injuries (think weeding too long) are 1.5 times more common in smokers than nonsmokers. Smoking also slows healing. In a study of wrist fractures, smokers took two months longer to heal than nonsmokers. How does smoking cause so many problems? Nicotine slows the pro duction of osteoblasts (bone forming cells). With fewer osteoblasts, less bone is made to heal a fracture or to strengthen a bone to prevent the frac ture. Smokers also absorb less calcium, an essential building block for strong bones. Rotator cuff tears, the shoulder injury that in terferes with shing, golf and pickleball, are near ly twice as large in smokers than in nonsmokers. Smaller tears heal better than large ones. The larger tears in smokers are probably due to poor tendon quality. This also makes successful repair more dif cult Time to return to full activity is longer with the larger tears. Smoking makes sur gery riskier. Some of the small air sacs in the lung collapse (atelectasis). In some patients this can lead to fever and, in a few cases, pneumonia. Nico tine decreases the blood ow to wounds, slowing healing and leading to a higher risk of infection. Even without inju ry, smokers can develop chronic neck and back pain. Fifty percent of smokers have chron ic low back pain as opposed to 20 percent of non-smokers. The decreased blood ow to the discs causes degeneration and the osteoporosis (decreased bone) causes stress fractures in the ver tebrae. There is one study that suggests that smokers also have a lower pain tol erance. May is National Osteoporosis month so, if you are a smoker, do something nice for your bones and yourself. Talk to your primary care doctor about quitting.Dr. Diana D. Carr treats patients at The Hand & Shoulder Specialists offering specialty care close to home with a concentration on healing shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand problems. She is certi ed by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery and a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons.

GUEST COLUMNDr. Diana Carr D ear Pharmacist: Are there any natural remedies I can take for high blood pressure? I do take medicine but I want to get off because it makes me cough. Can you help? T.L., Dallas, TexasAnswer: Promise to remain supervised by your physician before going off your medicine, some have to be weaned, you cant suddenly stop. High blood pressure is one of those things I consider a symptom rather than a disease itself. It is silent meaning there are few obvious signs that you have it until a big event, for example a heart attck. As blood pressure rises, you may get headaches in the back of the head which may feel worse in the morning upon arising. You may also experi ence dizziness, blurred vision, ringing in the ears, fatigue, nosebleeds or the urge to urinate at night. So what are your op tions? Losing weight by exercising will help. A better diet is a must. Because hypertension is a risk factor for heart attack and stroke, physicians take quick action and prescribe medications to lower blood pressure: ACE Inhibitors: Popu lar ones are lisinopril, benazepril and enalapril. These medications block your ACE enzyme. Natural foods and supplements that do the same thing in a gentler way include garlic, seaweed, pyc nogenol, omega 3 fatty acids, egg yolks, zinc and hawthorn berries. Calcium Channel Blockers: Verapamil, amlodipine and nife dipine. Medications in this category cause relaxation of the blood vessels. Natural options are omega 3 fatty acids, calcium, magnesium, vitamin E, vitamin C, hawthorn berries, NAC and lipoic acid. You should also eat celery. Diuretics: Blockbusters like furosemide and hydrochlorothiazide, these medications cause you to urinate more which reduces the amount of uid in your blood vessels. When you reduce the squeeze in those tiny cramped vessels, pressure goes down. Natural, gentle water pills include vitamin C, potassium, vitamin B6, hawthorn berry, taurine and CoQ10. Celery too! Certain foods and supplements are direct vasodilators, meaning they open up the blood vessels, thus relieving some pressure. These include taurine, potas sium, omega 3 fatty acids, and you guessed it, celery! Even 4 stalks a week could help, more if you like it. Juice it, dip it in hummus or sunower butter, and if you just cant eat it, then consider supplements of celery seed extract. Compounds in celery like -n-butylphthalide are known to reduce blood pressure. In China, this compound (extracted from celery seed) is sold as a drug to reduce beta amylase-induced neuronal apoptosis, which confers protection for people with stroke, dementia and traumatic brain injury (TBI). The nal piece of the anti-hypertensive puz zle is the beautiful beet. Solid research shows that beets, and beetroot juice can help with blood pressure and cholesterol. Drink about a cup a day. I juice a beet quite often myself. Consider massage to control cortisol. And yoga, its another fun, non-pharmacologi cal way to reduce blood pressure and stress hor mones. Plus, it makes you more exible and strengthens your spine.Suzy Cohen is a registered pharmacist and the author of The 24-Hour Pharmacist and Real Solutions.

Sorry for the inconvenience. SNAPSHOTS CHURCH SERVICES How do you see the Biblical rapture? For most people the rapture is either a creation by some extreme fanatic Christian or an unkno wn mystery which we are not to know. Hi, my name is Pastor Reinhold Buxbaum from The Church of The Way, and I like a word with you. You see, the rapture or the snatching away of the believers as the English Bible puts it in 1 Thessalonians 4:17 is a clear teaching of the scriptures. It seems the idea of our physical bod ies being turned into spiritual bodies and suddenly, in the twinkling of an eye, snatched up to meet Jesus in the air, is just too fantastic to be real. But we need to remember that the Bible is full of fantastic stories.Bill ORiley discr edits the miracles of the O ld Testament, I guess it is just too unbelievable for him. So what about the New Testament? Should we really believe that Jesus overcame gravity and walked on water? Should we believe that Jesus reactivated all 11 body sys tems in Lazarus after he was dead for four days? The answer depends on one simple factor: Is Jesus the God-man or simply just a man? If he is God, he is the creator of gravity and thus can overcome it. If he is God, he created all 11 body systems to begin with, and thus can reverse them. And if Jesus is God, then he will keep his promise of 1 Thessalo nians 4:13-18 and come back to snatch us up from this earth and take all believers to be with him. So when will this incredible event take place? The Bible does not give us a single sign for it. However the bible gives us some 400 signs of the second coming of the Lord, which will take place seven years later. It is called the Seven-Year Tribulation period. Do we see such signs now? You better believe it! Israel is back in the Promised Land (1948, Ezekiel 36-37). All of Je rusalem is back in the hands of the Jews (1967, Zechariah 14:4). Knowledge will rapidly increase (Daniel 12:4). People will love only themselves and their money (2 Timothy 3:2). People will be lovers of pleasure rather then lovers of God (2 Timothy 3:4). People will have a form of godliness without the po wer (2 Timothy 3:5). Signs like earthquakes, wars and famines will increase like birth pains in intensity and frequency (Matthew 24:8). We could go on and on. While we do not know day or hour of the rapture (Matthew 25:13), we are told to know the season (Matthew 16:2-3). Yes, the stage is set for our rapture!Reinhold Buxbaum is P astor of The Church of the Way, he teaches An Evening in Bible Prophecy at Homers Restaurant every 1st Monday of the month at 6:30 p.m. Guest columns ar e the opinion of the writer, not neces sarily those of the News-Sun staff.The mystery of the rapture GUEST COLUMNReinhold Buxbaum SNAPSHOTS RELIGION NEWS The news is just a click away!www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN A leopard sneaks up silently on its prey...So does skin cancer.The leopard cannot change its spotsYou CAN ... don't be the prey.The life you save could be your own.Run to American Institute of Dermatology, P.A.863-386-0786Get your spots checked today.r -.Dr. Darrin A.

In fact, one parent came up with an original idea that was hard to refute. He listened to all the reasons that his children gave for wanting to see a particu lar PG-13 mo vie. They said that it had their favorite actors in it. They said that everyone else had been going to see it. They said that even church members had described it as great. They said that it was only rated PG-13 because of the suggestion of sex, and it never really showed anything specic. They said that the language was pretty good, and it only used the Lords name in vain three times during the whole movie. Even with all the expla nations for the rating, the father would not give in. He did not ev en give them the satisfaction of explaining why he said, No. He just said, No. It was a little bit later that same evening that the father asked his teens if they would like some brownies he had prepared. He explained that he had taken the familys favorite recipe and added some thing new. They asked what it was. He calmly replied that he had added a special ingredient dog poop. He stated that ther e was only a little bit. All the other ingredients were gourmet quality. He had taken great care to bake it at the precise temperature for the exact time needed. He was sure the brownies would be superb. However, even with all the explanations given for the high caliber of the brownies, the teens would not eat one. The father act ed surprised. There was only one little element that was causing them to act so stubbornly. He assured them that they would hardly notice the extra ingredient. They all held rm and would not taste the brownies. He then explained that the movie they had wanted to see was just like the brownies. He said, Sin enters our minds and our homes by deceiving us into believing that just a little bit of evil wont matter. With the brownies, just a little bit makes all the difference necessary to distinguish a gr eat brownie from a totally unacceptable product. He explained that even though the movie people would have us believe that many movies that are coming out are ne for adults and youths to see, the truth is that they simply are not. Paul wrote the Lords church in Colossians 1:912 and told them, For this reason also, since the day we heard of it we have not ceased to pray for you and to ask that you may be lled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understand ing, so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience; joyously giving thanks to the Father, who has qualied us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light. Let each of us strive to please God in all respects. No matter what we say or do, let us do it to glori fy Him and build up those around us. We must add the good ingredients to our lives and eliminate the bad ingredients from our lives. Then we will be tru ly pleasing in the eyes of God.Kevins Komments is written b y Kevin Patterson and presented by the Sebring Parkway church of Christ assembling at 3800 Se bring Parkway.

KEVINS KOMMENTSKevin Patterson Associated PressSALT LAKE CITY The historic increase in Mormon missionaries last year didnt lead to an immediate spike in converts, but church ofcials say its too early to draw conclusions. After lowering the minimum age for missionar ies, the number of proselytizing members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints increased by 41 percent in 2013, show gures released earlier this month from the Salt Lake City based faith. The number of converts, however, only increased by 4 percent last year. That means the average number of people converted per missionary, per year, dropped to 3.5 last year down from an average of 5 the previous decade, said Matt Martinich, a member of the LDS church who analyzes membership numbers with the nonprot Cumorah Foundation. It shows a pretty stark decline, said Martinich, while adding that it will take at least one mor e year of data to accurate ly assess the impacts The story was rst reported by The Salt Lake Tribune. Church leaders said it s problematic to draw conclusions about the impact of the increase in missionaries based on comparing conversion numbers from 2013 to the year. Much of last year was spent ramping up to be ready for the in crease, they said. I t was a major undertaking to get thousands of young men and women trained for their missions, get staff for 58 new missions created and to set existing missions for more missionaries, said church spokesman Eric Hawkins. Implementing some thing as large as this and seeing results takes time perhaps years, Hawkins said. The onslaught of new missionaries was triggered by the church announcing in the fall of 2012 that men could start missions at 18 instead of 19, and women at 19 instead of 21. Men serve two years, and women 18 months. The 85,000 prosely tizing members serving now around the world are far more than at any time in church history. There are currently 15 million members of the faith.More missionaries, slight rise in Mormon converts NEws SL NHighlands County's Hometown Newspaper Since I927d'
