A5 BY PHIL ATTINGER STAFF WRITER SEBRING After getting push back twice from the Sebring City Council on funding downtown events for the coming year, Push Events Productions has turned to the Downtown Sebring Business Alliance for support. Event promoters Casey Wohl and Lora Todd said city council members want to see more involvement and nancial support from downtown merchants before committing city funds. Wohl said one council member told her a nancial commitment of at least $5,000 from downtown businesses would improve their chances. We are pleased with the involvement from merchants last year, Todd told approximately 25 downtown business leaders during Tuesdays Business Alliance meeting. We want to create a positive perception. Todd said the downtown business district suffers from a negative perception of being closed by 5 p.m. and during special events. Wohl, who had one business owner complain about the cost of wine for the monthly Wine Walk event, said promotion is the cost of doing business. You never know who will buy, Wohl said. Results arent always immediate. That has been one Push Promotions asks downtown businesses for more event support Push Event Promotions is asking more downtown businesses to o er support for their events in an e ort to get the city council on board with helping fund them in the future.

BY BARRY FOSTER NEWS-SUN CORRESPONDENT SEBRING The Florida Legislature wont be convening for several months yet, however, members of the Highlands County Legislative Delegation will be holding their annual meeting at 2 p.m. Friday in the chambers of the county commission Florida House District 55 representative Cary Pigman will sit as the chair of the session, which also has been designated as a public hearing. Also set to be in attendance are Florida District 21 Senator Denise Grimsley and Florida District 26 Senator Bill Galvano. There have been a dozen local groups, boards and organizations signed up to participate, including the Highlands County Commission, the School Board of Highlands County, the Highlands County Economic Development Commission and the Spring Lake Improvement District. All proposals for suggested local bills are expected to be presented at that time. As part of the process, legislators asked that those measures be in draft form with an accompanying resolution from the local governmental agency in support of it. The deadline to have been placed on the agenda for the meeting was last Wednesday, but that will not preclude citizens and other organizations from addressing the group. There will be a public comments time at the end of the meeting, said Maura Palmer of Pigmans of ce. Traditionally, both citizens and organizations which did not make the deadline have spoken to the group in the past. Of cials estimate the meeting will run about two hours.

According to a crash report the incident occurred at 7:55 p.m. A 2005 Ford Taurus driven by Sebring resident Brian Smith was traveling east on Golfview Drive. Kaytlyn was walking in the eastbound lane near the shoulder of the roadway. Kaytlyn was hit by the right front of the Taurus, which knocked her into the right shoulder of Golfview Dr. The Ford came to a stop nearby. She was reportedly walking hand-in-hand with her boyfriend, who suffered only a scraped elbow. Kaytlyn was in critical condition following the crash and was taken to Highlands Regional Medical Center, then taken later by helicopter to All Childrens Hospital in Tampa.

If I had killed my wife, your headline would have said mur der-suicide, he told the News-Sun, be cause I cant live without my wife. Chr istian, 48, of 1621 Hitakee Ave. in Sebring, explained that his wife, 60, is in the early stages of Alzheimers disease, and the only mistake he made early last Sun day morning was not checking to see wheth er or not she was in bed when he hear d a noise and got out of bed to in vestigate. H e thought someone was breaking in. Chris tian, who said he had been activ e until re cently with the neighborhood crime watch, said he had r eported burglaries and thefts from homes and cars in the neighborhood to Sebring police. The night of Sept. 21 had no moonlight, he said. When he saw a gure standing in the kitchen, he started shooting. It turned out to be his wife. Sebring Police Commander Steve Carr reported last week that once Christian realized it was her, he stopped shooting. All shots missed except one that hit her face. It has been ruled an accidental shooting, Carr said, and no charg es would be led. C arr said Christian volunteered that day to go have police ofcers drive him to the Peace River Crisis Center in Bartow. Carr said Chris tian was evaluated and r eleased that same day. Christian said he and his wife have lived in Sebring seven years and had been together since 1986, married since he was 19 years old. He said he wouldnt know what to do without her.Man: Shooting was accidental Your diamond may stiffer fromSaka SOCIAL ANXIETY DISORDERIs your diamond afraid to go out in public?Does it get nervous around bigger diamonds?Does it struggle to catch fire in the sunlight?BRILLIANCE YOU DESERVE'Fairmount Cinema Square, Sebringwww.highlandsjewelers.comMember American Gem Society/ '. .FINANCINGAbbey FlooringI oESIGN CENTERI J(863) 385-66541313 US 27 NORTH SEBRING, FLWWW.ELDRIDGESDESIGNCENTER.COMMONDAY FRIDAY 8 5:30 SATURDAY 9 -1No matter how you read thenews, we've got you covereda.. a NEWS-SUN and theNEWS JOURNALC) C)O.

www.newssun.comWednesday, October 1, 2014 | NE wW SSS U nN | A5 VIEWPOINTS OUR VIEWWe congratulate the Avon Park City Council for agreeing to purchase The Brickell Build ing at last weeks regular meeting. W ith this decision the city is poised to reawaken Main Street, which lately has been showing signs of life. Imagine a thriving downtown, from the Depot Museum and the proposed museum dedicated to the late local artist Peter Powell Roberts at one end of Main Street, to the Jacaranda Hotel, the Brickell Build ing and Lake Verona at the other. M ain Street is old fashioned, with its Mall, gazebo and veterans me morial the perfect place for a str oll or a date. All thats needed are places where people can have a good time. Many suggestions have already been made a coffee shop or res taurant, an internet cafe, a gaming r oom, a wine and cheese shop. Larry Shoeman suggested putting a recording studio somewhere in the building, for local bands, artists and other performers. We want to bring in after-hours businesses, Shoeman said. We want to get the young folk down town. T urning the second oor into apartments is a good idea. Revital ization is a complex process. While businesses ar e vital, so are custom ers and clients. The busier Main S treet becomes, the more people will be attracted to it. The only thing we ask is that no one rush while making decisions. As City Manager Julian Deleon said on Monday, the building has been unoccupied over a decade. There is no need to become over-excited, or settle for the ordinary and sign-up the rst would-be tennant before the end of the week. We have time to think creative ly, to be thoughtful about practical matters, to consider unexpect ed consequences, to investigate tr ends and to properly market the Brickell Building as a place to do business. We feel those individuals who en vision a wide range of businesses that attr act walk-in trafc from all generations at different times of the day are on the right track. For the rst time in a long time, Avon Park has an opportunity to re invent itself to become a desti nation, to ourish. D eleon has said, he is open for ideas. So think big, think small, think unique, think useful, think fun. Then call the city at 863-452-4403. Lets take our time, savor the op portunity and make good decisions r ight from the start.

I t wont surprise me if thats how a future Pres ident closes one of his State of the Union ad dresses. The un-Amer ican term the homeland is taking over America. Everywhere I turn its being used to replace the words country or nation or the United States. All the media have ac cepted the phrase. Its all o ver CNN, FOX, MSN BC. I hear it on NPR. I ts in the news pag es and headlines of the W ashington Examin er, the Washington Post and the Weekly Stan dard. The homeland is a bipartisan insult to America. Its being used by lib erals, conservatives, politicians, pundits, the White H ouse, govern ment mouthpieces and M iddle East military ex perts who otherwise wouldn t agree on what direction the sun sets. President Obama and Republican hawk Peter King both throw around the homeland. Democrat Sen. Mark Udall of Colorado re cently said he didnt think ISIS was an im mediate threat to the homeland. Dan Senor, a Bush II neocon, dropped the H-word on Morning Joe Wednesday morn ing during his pitch for putting boots on the ground to defeat ISIS. How did defending against additional ter rorist attacks after 9/11 change fr om defend ing the United States of Amer ica to defending the homeland? The Homeland itll soon be capital ized sounds like one of those phony wor ds George Orwell invented for his novel . The Merriam Webster dictionary gives away its foreign origins, den ing it as: Homeland: 1. native land: FATHERLAND. 2. a state or area set aside to be a state for a people of a particular nation al, cultural, or racial origin. The gr eat word smith Peggy Noonan tr ied to warn us off us ing homeland back in 2002. I n her Wall Street Jour nal column urging the B ush administration to come up with a different name for the Depart ment of Homeland Security, she nailed it: Homeland isnt real ly an American word, its not something w e used to say or say now. It has a vaguely Teutonic ring Ve must help ze Fueh rer protect ze Homeland! and Republicans must always be on guar d against sounding Teutonic. That must explain why every time I hear the words the homeland I have the strange urge to give a Hitler salute. Homeland as well as its Soviet cousin, The Motherland is not a word t for use by truly patriotic Americans. As Noonan wrote, the essence of Ameri can patriotism is a felt and spoken lo ve for and delity to the ideas and ideals our coun try represents and was inv ented to advance freedom, equali ty, pluralism. We hold these tr uths... The word homeland suggests another kind of patriotism a vaguely European sort. We have the best Alps, the most elegant language; we make the best cheese, had the bravest gener als. N oonan knew im mediately the USA was headed do wn the wrong road with the word homeland. So did a few oth ers, including the lefty J osh Marshall of Talking Points Memo. In 2002 he said the phrase the homeland had a deep blood and soil tinge to it which is distinctly Germanic, more than a touch unAmerican, and a little creepy. The homeland has always had a totalitari an ring. I ts why FDR didnt use it during World War II. And why no president used it during the Cold War. Its why in the 1984 election my fathers po litical advisers didnt build an ad campaign around Its morning again in the Homeland. Excuse me, were Americans, not Home landers. This is our countr y, not our home land. In the United S tates of America we love our freedoms more than our mountains and spacious skies. But if we dont watch out, one of these days the opening lyrics of America are going to be changed to My Homeland, tis of thee, Sweet land of Germany, of thee I sing.Michael Reagan is the son of President Ronald Reagan, a political consultant, and author.

N o charges have been led against Smith, but the Florida Highway Patrol reports the case is under investigation. Kaytlyn was a for mer member of the Sebring High School cross countr y team and re cently took a job at B rewsters Coffee on U.S. 27. Brewsters manag er Bruce Rogers said he was overwhelmed and called Kaytlyn a very special employ ee. The family needs our prayers and thoughts, Rogers said. Krista Schult, the cross country coach at Sebring High School, said Kaytlyn had stepped down from the team this year to focus on her job. Schult said the team had a cross country meet at 6 / a.m. Tuesday and learned about the situation around that time. Lots of the girls on the team were still good friends with her, Schult said. We heard the news early. The girls time and workout quality was the best all season so far (af ter hearing the news). They w ere really moti vated. Schult called the news really devastat ing and said the cross countr y team was like a family. Once youre a part of the cross country fam ily, you always are, she said. at 863-385-6155, Ext. GIRL FROM PAGE A A 1reason behind downtown events, she said: T o bring more foot trafc and promote the downtown as a place where something is al ways happening. W ohl and Todd pre sented the city with a list of v e events in August, but after the council tabled the mat ter, they returned on S ept. 4 with just three events: Heartland Hol iday Festival, Roar ing 20s and Girls Gone W ine. The council still turned it down on a 3-2 vote. In addition to get ting funding from the S ebring Communi ty, Push had asked the city to waiv e event fees, to fund marketing and non-promotion al expenses and to provide $3,900 per event to compensate Wohl, Todd and an assistant for the time spent or ganizing and administering events. W ohl and Todd said they organized ve 2013-14 events for free, but couldnt afford that again. Mayor John Shoop, who supported their proposal, said coun cil members arent seeing how much Business Alliance members ar e involved. He ad vised alliance members to attend council meetings as a group, and present solutions to improve downtown commerce. Change the percep tion, because during ev ents, you are open, Shoop said. Im for anything that makes our city look more en compassing and convenient. B usiness Alliance President Gini Beth Henderson, of GBs La dies & Mens Formal W ear, asked if Push Events had sent the council a tally of mer chants in-kind contributions, and Todd said they had. C ouncilman Mark Stewart, also in sup port of downtown ev ents, said the coun cil got that list for the S ept. 4 vote, and needs to see such numbers. It doesnt hurt to call your city councilman, Stewart said. Shoop said, at this point, the Business Al liance may have to request support for each ev ent separately. Ronald Thomas, owner of Capt. Rons Mercantile, said he re called the city council asking why taxpay er money is being used for ev ents to benet merchants. Whats lost in the translation is that peo ple coming downtown for these ev ents are taxpayers who want (events), Thomas said. Charles Lowrance, who recently bought downtown commer cial property, said entrepreneurs are more positiv e in recent years toward developing the heart of the city. Rick Strzelewicz, of Heartland Band Sup ply, said merchants need to r emind the city council that without vibrant commerce, the downtown could revert to its 1990s persona of daylight prostitution and drug houses. PUSH FROM PAGE A A 1 Katara Simmons/News-SunA roadside memorial is placed along Golfview Road on Tuesday afternoon in memory of Kaytlyn Cooper, a 16 year-old girl who was hit by a car Monday night while walking along the residential road in Sebring. BY PHIL ATTINGER STAFF WRITER SEBRING The death of a woman found in a cow pasture behind her Sebring home has been ruled an accident by High lands County Sheriffs inv estigators. Five months ago, on April 30, deputies re ceived word that Jessica Dawn Norman, 33, of 1226 F arm Road in Sebring, was found dead and unclothed in a ditch near the back of the property. Autopsy reports stat ed she had both alcohol and methamphetamine in her system and punctur e wounds on her body consis tent with animal bites. Although thr ee ag gressive pit bulls were kno wn to have been loose in her neigh borhood on April 28 the day she was last seen alive her death was attributed to methamphetamine intoxication, with ani mal bites being only a contr ibuting factor. During the course of the investigation, Highlands County Animal Control eu thanized three pit bulls o wned by Lisa Hodge of 215 Planta tion Drive. They reported to have escaped their kennel and their fenced-in yard on April 28. High lands County Animal C ontrol Ofcer Ralph Smith was cited as saying they were the most aggressive dogs he had dealt with in 11 years. The place where Norman was discov ered was only 85 feet fr om where Hodge had seen one of her dogs trying to exit her yard through her fence. Reports said that part of the wire property fence had corroded in a low spot with standing water. Dog hair the same color as the dogs was found on remnants of her clothing, but vet erinary examination and DNA tests could not conrm Hodges dogs had attacked Norman. During the investi gation, Hodge had the dogs mo ved to her inlaws home in Avon Park, where they could be more closely moni tored, then agreed to tur n them over to ani mal control. H odge is the wid ow of Floyd Hodge, 31, who was shot and killed by deputies on March 9 while en gaged in a shooting spr ee in front of his house. Reports stated the county had no previ ous reports of the dogs getting loose. While Hodge was aware of the dogs having got ten out of their kennel, she was unawar e of them ever getting out of their fence. Jessica Norman was last seen by her an c, Jason Williams, at noon on A pril 28. She was known for leaving without telling people where she was going, including making a trip earlier in the year for four days to party in Bowling Green, re ports said. E ven though she didnt have a source of income and her son had been recently tak en away by the Department of Children and F amilies after she tested positive for methamphetamine, reports stated she didnt have any suicid al thoughts. S he was remem bered as someone who lo ved animals, enjoyed working with cattle on the proper ty, had no known enemies and was liked by those she met. The par t of the pas ture where she was found was kno wn to be one of her favor ite spots, reports said, wher e she would often go after troubles or to work on crafts. Report edly, she was out looking for items to use in wind chimes the day she disappeared. Her father, Hen ry Norman, found her along the woods line on the west of his property, reports said approximately 300 yards from the house. Reports state he had not reported her as missing, because of her history of leaving for days at a time.Womans April death in pasture ruled accidentalBody believed bitten Hodges pit bulls Lake Placid's BestKept Car CareSecret for IS Years!Stop in and see why we are Lake Placid'schoice for expert automotive maintenance.a 0 aPWdaTTA -lot IN na ofAN 96000 TO RgftbQOE3=000=11900Get NoticedAdvertise Today! ftoML=l1 ` 1r-jwfNEWSUN

Ther e, Lake Placid played ve matches in two days, picking up wins over Poinciana and Ocoee. The team then con tinued its busy, and tough, schedule M on day with a three-set loss to a seasoned and sizeable Okeechobee squad. It was a good tour nament for us over the w eekend, head coach Charlotte Bauder said. We reached the silver bracket against some really good competi tion. And a match like to night is only going to help us with our dis trict matches. That cer tainly showed as the Drag ons kept up with the Lady B rahmans throughout. They took a brief lead in the opening set on a Jacalyn Baldwin kill and stayed even with a Kailin Brown ace and Tamija Doug las kill. O keechobee pulled off a ve-point run to take a 17-12 edge, but Lake Placid battled back to even things up again at 20-20. They would keep it close, at 23-22, before the Brahmans added the nal two scores for the win. Seemingly fueled by the close contest, the Dragons came out strong in the second set, taking an early lead on three straight Lady Dragons held off by Okeechobee Dan Hoehne/News-SunDani Daigle, front, and Shannon Huber lunge forward to get this dig Monday in Lake Placids battle with Okeechobee.SEE VB | A11 BY DAN HOEHNE NEWS-S SUn N S SPORTS E EDITOR The Swimming Dragons, along with the B lue Streaks, were on hand at last weekends FSPA Invitational in Stuart, and saw some successes among the vast eld.

PETERSBURG The Tampa Bay Rays are no longer ac customed to playing meaningless games so the past week or so has been especial ly tough on a team that began the sea son with expectations of contending for a World Series berth. Instead of making a fifth trip to the play offs in seven years, disappointed play ers and manager Joe M addon are getting an early start on their offseason after post ing the clubs first losing r ecord since 2007 the final year they were known as the dreadful Devil Rays, perennial los ers who would have w elcomed a 77-85 finish. Fourth-place in the AL East would have been progress, even acceptable, for the old Devil Rays. But thats no longer the case. Since 2008, when the franchise adopted new colors, changed uniforms and dropped the Dev il from its name, the R ays have played a total of 21 games af ter being mathematically eliminated from postseason conten tion, including eight this y ear. Its just a sick ening feeling to go into late S eptember, and watching teams start celebrating, and watching postseason commercials on TV and knowing youre not going to be part of it, pitcher Alex Cobb said.

HIGhHLANDS HEALThH B Wednesday, October 1, 2014 BY PHIL ATTINGER STAFF WRITER SEBRING Flor ida has not had any conr med cases of Enterovirus D68 (EVD68), but that doesnt mean it wont. Its denitely on the radar, said Pat rick Hickey, epidemiologist with the Flor ida Department of H ealth in Highlands County. Were pretty sure were going to see it in Florida. Its spread ing throughout the M idwest. Hickey said chil dren are more susceptible to the virus than adults but that doesnt mean that adults cant or wont get it. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (www. cdc.gov) has report ed that between midA ugust to Sept. 19, a total 160 people in 22 states have been conrmed to have the respiratory illness caused by the virus. Those 22 states in clude Alabama, California, Colorado, C onnecticut, Geor gia, Illinois, Indiana, I owa, Kansas, Ken tucky, Louisiana, M ichigan, Minneso ta, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New J ersey, New York, Oklahoma, Pennsyl vania, Virginia and W ashington. Cases of EV-D68 were conrmed by the CDC or state public health labora tories. I n coming weeks, more states are ex pected to conrm E V-D68 cases. People are more likely to get infected in the summer or fall, and several states are investigating clusters of people who have severe respiratory ill nesses and more cases are expected to be found as labor ato ry backlogs begin to clear the CDC states. Hickey said the method of transmis sion is unknown, so it could be airbor ne as well as by direct con tact. Though it is a tough virus for which there is no vaccine, Hick ey said its not deadly nor should it cause a state of emer gen cy. With typical home r est and other famil iar home cold and Enterovirus D68 on its way to Florida? Salt is essential to good health in man, animals and most plants. It is used as a preservative, antiseptic, a vor enhancer and in many industries. S alt use or symbolism oc curs in most of the worlds religions. Salt is generally a symbol of incorruptibility because of its pr eservative qualities. Phrases such as not worth his salt from the Greek custom of buying slaves with salt and the word salary because the Roman legions were paid in salt money and many oth ers expressions are among the most fr equent idioms in our speech. Almost 5,000 years ago, a Chinese pharmacology text described methods of extract ing salt similar to those practices in use today. Until modern times, salt was difcult and expensiv e to produce. In addition to gold, Christopher Columbus hoped to also get salt from his exploration of the new world. Wars were fought over salt. The French Revolution was, in part, brought on by the high salt taxes. Napoleon lost thou sands of soldiers in his retreat fr om Russia because there wasnt enough salt in his sol diers diets. Why is salt so impor tant to people? The sodium of salt partners with potassium to form a pump that moves u id and nutrients in and out of cells The pump supplies the power for the electrical im pulses of nerves that regulate our heartbeat, move our ar ms and legs, and helps us to think. Not enough salt can lead to death and too much salt is associated with in creased blood pressure and Salt wars: Too much is bad, but so is not enough ShutterstockReal wars used to be fought over salt. Now, the battle is over how much you should be eating GUEST COLUMNDr. Diana CarrEveryone is worried about heavy metals in their dental amalgams and vaccines. But what if I told you that you could be getting some in your morning bowl of cereal? Its possible according to Mike Ad ams, founder of the Forensic Food Lab (labs. natur alnews.com). Some metals are sim ply not supposed to be in y our body. The symptoms of acute poisoning require im mediate medical attention, whereas chronic lo w level exposure will cause symptoms that look like an auto-im mune disorder, attention problem or neurological disease. Take a look at the star tling symptoms of chronic metal exposure: Lead Fatigue, in somnia, trouble concentrating, irritability, headache weight loss, stomach pains, low li bido and high blood pr essure. Without a doubt there is always nervous system dam age causing dozens of muscular and neur o logical problems. Disturbingly, lead contaminants have been isolated fr om a few baby foods and juices. Arsenic Darkening or discoloration of your skin, skin bumps (like corns or warts termed hyperkeratosis), white lines in the ngernails (termed Mees lines) and peripheral neu ropathy.

Ste 11SEBRING 3093134 increased risk of stroke and heart problems. The controversy over how much is too much or too little has come to a head with the recent publication of seem ingly contradictory studies in the N ew Eng land Journal of Medicine. Amer icans average 10 grams of salt per day. The Center for Disease Control recommends a maximum of 2.5 grams per day for the gener al population. It recommends less than 1.5 gr ams for anyone over 51 and all African Americans because of their higher rate of high blood pressure. The PURE (Prospec tive Urban Rural Epidemiology) study looked at the salt intake of 100,000 adults in 17 countries. Ninety per cent were in the high (mor e than 5.99 grams per day) and moder ate (3-5.99 grams of salt per day) r anges. Only 4 percent met current CDC guidelines for salt consumption. Those people with a high or low salt intake had an increased risk of stroke or heart problems. Another group re viewed 107 studies on salt intake and, using sophisticated statisti cal analysis, showed that the r isk of stroke or heart problems in creased with salt intake. I n response to the con troversy, the Institutes of M edicine convened a panel of experts to re view the relationship betw een salt intake and health. They conclud ed that high intake increased health risk, but the evidence was in conclusive about the good or bad effect of low salt intake. There was some ev idence that in some subgr oups, such as those with heart fail ure, diabetes or renal failur e, low salt intake might increase risk. What should you do? Try to reduce your salt/ sodium intake. Since 75 percent of our sodi um intake comes from pr ocessed foods, read ing nutrition labels and selecting lo w so dium choices is a good place to star t. Try us ing herbs, spices, lemon juice and other avors instead of salt to enhance the av or of food. Balancing sodium in take with its pump par tner may also help. Unless your potassi um intake is restricted (such as patients with kidney disease or peo ple on Warfarin), you can eat potassium-r ich foods such as strawber ries, oranges, tomatoes and mangos and support local agriculture. B ananas, plantains, dry beans and spinach are also high in potassium. Enjoy your culinary ad venture as you improve y our health.Dr. Diana D.

When coal is burned, mercury is released. Symptoms include mood swings memory loss, heart arrhythmias, weakness, skin rashes, psychiatric illness and dozens of muscular or neurological symptoms. Progressive, disabling conditions may occur if mercury poisoning is not uncovered in time.

This is certainly not the case with regards to the ad vances of technology in the medical eld. I ndeed, medical technology has vastly changed the landscape of healthcare dur ing the past 50 years. E xamples of chang es include medical devices such as CT scanners and debrillators; medical and sur gical procedures such as an gioplasty and joint replacement; new support systems such as electr onic medical re cords and telemedicine. Yes, most ar eas of the medical eld ar e associated with technology that has morphed and im proved during the past sev eral decades. A signicant tech nology that continues to develop rapidly in the United States is telemedicine. This technology improves access to quality healthcare, particular ly in rural areas, by allowing patients to visit with specializ ed physi cians live over two-way video If there were no shortage of doctors in the United States and coverage was evenly distributed, telemedi cine would have little signicance However, many parts of America, especially in rural sec tors, have severe shortage of doctors. According to the American M edical College, there will be a shortage of 90,000 doctors within the next six years. This statistic begins to show the important role telemedicine will play in healthcare. While working in Northern California, I experienced rst hand the importance of tele medicine. Because of doctor shor tag es and our rural location in the Redwoods of N orthern Califor nia, we were forced to r ecruit an intensivist (a physician who spe cializes in taking care of the cr itically ill) who lived hundreds of miles away. He had no inten tion of moving to the ar ea. In order to insure his presence at the hospi tal on a daily basis, we pur chased a 5-foot5 robot that the doc tor could operate from the comfor t of his home ofce. The doc tor could move the robot with a joystick that looked something like an X-box controller. The head of the robot was a TV screen where the patient could see the doctor. There was a microphone, speak er and high-denition camer a installed. The doctor, through the robot, would visit patients at the bedside, attend meetings, visit with family members and roll over to radiol ogy to review images of his patients The ro bot was stored in ICU and it was star tling to be standing by it when it would spring to life and began to move. In the same small hospital, I saw how telemedicine saves lives. On a cold night, one of our medical sur gical nurses brought in her 8-y ear-old son, Ian, to the ER. He was in a diabetic coma and fail ing fast. The ER doctor needed to do a pr oce dure which included making an incision into the femor al artery. He had not done the procedure in 20 years and called a local sur geon to assist. H e then connect ed with the U.C.-Davis pediatric unit thr ough the ER tele medicine equipment. The ER doctor men tioned he needed to wait about 10 minutes for the surgeon to ar rive. The pediatric doctor said, You dont hav e 10 minutes this child will not survive that long. Let me guide you through the proce dure. The procedure was successful and I an is alive and healthy to day partially because of telemedicine Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center (FHHMC) is no stranger to telemed icine. Consults with specialists o ver twoway video have taken place in the emergen cy room for sever al years. In addition, this past J une FHHMC partnered with Ad vanced ICU Care, the nation s largest pro vider of tele-ICU ser vices, to provide additional monitoring 24/7 in all 10 ICU r ooms in Lake Placid and 12 ICU rooms in Sebring. Statistics show those intensive care units with Tele ICU have shorter lengths of stay, thus reducing costs to the patient and hos pital. A dditionally, the ability to access cre dentialed, criticaltrained physicians, as an added layer of care, can increase commu nity condence in a rural setting, which ultimately affects the bottom line Patients remain in their local environment, yet have the benet of receiving quality care that oth erwise might not be av ailable to them. Most importantly, tele-ICU saves lives. Stay tuned as this and other technologies continue to change the landscape of health care in the Heartland.Anthony Stahl, PhD, FACHE, is the administrator at Flori da Hospital Heartland Medi cal Center-Lake Placid.

B6 | NEWS-SUN | Wednesday, October 1, 2014 www.newssun.com DEAR ABBY: Last year I found a bottle of Valtrex in my husbands car. He had been taking the medicine for months. When I asked him about it, he lied. I was devastated when I realized I had been exposed to herpes. He actually tried to say he got it from me, but later he admitted that he had been stepping out with random women while working out of town. (Hes a truck driver.) I had a blood test and thankfully I didnt catch it. What is the doctors responsibility in informing the spouse? Im sure my ex is going to sleep around and infect others. We are divorced now, so Im free of his lying and cheating, but I am fearful for others. Hes so lowdown that he will spread it to other women and not care. Should I be concerned, or should I just leave it alone since hes not my problem anymore? HEARTBROKEN IN ALABAMA DEAR HEARTBROKEN: Unless your husband gave his physician permission to reveal his medical status to you, the doctor was bound by HIPAA regulations, and by law could not warn you that your husband had an STD. (Yes, I agree this aspect of the law is disgusting.) Much as you might wish to, theres nothing you can do to control your former spouses behavior. My doctor tells me that herpes is most contagious during an outbreak. The risk is far less when the person is not shedding the virus. Valtrex fur ther decreases the chances of spreading it, although its still possible. If the result of the blood test you were given was negative, then you have never been exposed. However, if you have any symptoms, such as itching or swollen lymph nodes in your groin, you should let your OB/GYN know right away. DEAR ABBY: My 57-year-old sister has had many career problems. Shes well-educated, personable, professional and punctual, but she quits or is let go from one job after another within weeks because it wasnt a good fit. She seems to be holding out for what she had 25 years ago a well-paying position supervising clerks. But jobs like that dont exist anymore. Shes excellent at working with small children and the elderly and has significant experience doing so, but she believes such jobs are beneath her. Im her only close relative, and Im afraid shell eventually turn to me for financial support something my husband and I cannot afford to provide. What can I do or say to make her realize that a STEADY JOB is what she really needs for the next 10 years? SENSIBLE SIB IN ARIZONA DEAR SENSIBLE SIB: Tell your sister exactly what you have written to me: Sis, what you need is a steady job for the next 10 years, because if youre counting on support from me, Im telling you now my husband and I cant afford to give it to you. Its short, sweet, and it may be the wake-up call she needs before its too late.Truck driver spreading herpes is out of ex-wifes control DEAR ABBY Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phil lips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Wednesday, October 1, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B7 www.newssun.com Students from Lake Placid and Sebring will join thousands of other youth on athletic elds all across the nation Wednesday, Oct. 8 to share their Christian faith with fellow students during the ninth annual national Fields of Faith event. This rapidly-growing, interdenominational outreach event will be held at more than 450 locations throughout the nation on this same date. This will be the rst Fields of Faith event in Highlands County and will be held at the Lake Placid High School baseball stadium from 6:30 to 8 p.m. This is a free event and concessions will be available to help support the Lake Placid Baseball Club, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-prot corporation. The national growth of Fields of Faith has been remarkable. Since the beginning of Fields of Faith in 2004, over a million people have joined in the movement. In 2013 alone, more than 170,000 students gathered on 463 elds to participate in the event. While many Christian rallies are anchored to an entertainer or professional speaker that creates a spectator event, Fields of Faith is structured as a student-to-student ministry. Peers invite their own classmates and teammates to meet on their schools athletic eld to hear fellow students share their testimonies, challenge them to read the Bible and to come to faith in Jesus Christ. Its not just those numbers that have FCA organizers excited about Fields of Faith. Its the real-life impact that these gatherings are having on young people. Last years series of events saw 5,397 students make rsttime faith commitments to follow Jesus Christ, 7,921 recommitted their life to Christ and 9,834 committed to reading the Bible daily. The impetus for Fields of Faith began with Jeff Martin, an FCA staff person, who conceived the idea. In 2004, the dream came true when 6,000 students gathered on school athletic elds throughout three states for the rst Fields of Faith event. That was the beginning of what has become one of the most signicant faith-related gathering of students in a single day. Fields of Faith challenges this gener ation to be committed to reading the Bible and living a transformed life for Jesus Christ, said Martin. Its students challenging students, peers challenging peers and thats the heart and soul of Fields of Faith. Earlier this month FCA took 86 coaches and student athletes from Lake Placid High School to the Carmike Cinemas Lakeshore in Sebring to see the recent release, When The Game Stands Tall. It has been many years since FCA has had a presence in Highlands County and we look forward to partnering with the local church and other ministries here moving forward to impact our community in Jesus name, said Tim Vester, Highlands County Area Representative. While Fields of Faith has its roots with FCA leadership, the event is designed to include multiple national Christian organizations, local churches and ministries. A local leadership team will determine the program of each Fields of Faith event. More information about Fields of Faith is available at FieldsofFaith.com. To learn more about the event in Lake Placid, contact Vester at 863-258-5559.Fields of Faith coming to Lake Placid on Oct. 8 LAKE PLACID The Lake Placid Noon Rotary donated $100 to the Friends of Highlands Hammock State Park on Sept. 18. Darrel Smith accepted the donation. Smith is known as The CCC Man. He was 16 years old when he came to Florida with the Civilian Conservation Corps to help build Highlands Hammock. The CCC was put into motion to work with youths whom were wandering aimlessly in the cities and the country searching for jobs and a future. The CCC restored 3,980 historic structures. Many states had no state parks. The CCC installed approximately 5,000 miles of water supply and moved and planted 45 million trees for landscaping and 3 billion trees in reforestation. Smith was making a remarkable $30 a month and was ecstatic to be making so much. His father had passed away and there were eight children in his family so his mother received a check each month for $25. With a mortgage payment of $7 this went a long way. Smith said, One of my proudest moments was when I asked my mother to buy my sister her rst store-bought dress for her 16th birthday. At that time the dress was less than $2. Smith can still t into his rst store-bought clothing, but he says it is a little more snug than it used to be.

B8 | NEWS-SUN | Wednesday, October 1, 2014 www.newssun.com CLUBS & ORGANIZATIONS Avon Park Founders Garden ClubAVON PARK The Avon Park Founders Garden Club held the rst meeting of the new season at the home of Bill and Anita Helbig. Guest speaker for the meeting was David Austin from the Highlands County Coop Extension. Austin told the club members everything they wanted to know about growing vegetables in Florida. The one thing that gardeners forget to do is have the pH level of the soil checked and amend the soil according to the results. Vegetable gardening can be expensive and the products less expensive to buy at the store, but the satisfaction that one gets from growing their own food products far outweighs the cost. In the business meeting, President Betty Hannah welcomed everyone back and introduced new and prospective members. Members who attended the 75th anniversary bash at Florida Federation of Gardeners Headquarters gave a report of the events of the day. Fran Beers won the Happy Birthday Crate lled with party supplies. The Yard of the Month Award was announced as being presented to Melvin and June Kloehn, 2404 San Remo St. Rosie Longanecker gave a report on herbs that grow naturally in Florida and gave members printed information. Anita Helbig reported that she was in contact with the Center for Great Apes in Wauchula. The cost to enter the center is $25 per person. Anita asked members to let her know if they are interested in a eld trip to the center. A minimum of 10 people must be in a group. The tour is a walking tour over shell rock paths. Fran Beers gave a report on scholarships to Camp Wekiva and asked members to be thinking of students to receive these scholarships. Charlotte Truitt presented a proposal to hold a non-judged ower show during either the Oktoberfest or Springtime on the Mall Festival for the next garden club year. She gave information about securing a site and funding. Charlotte was appointed head of the committee to investigate the possibility of this venture. Hannah announced that the club will have a booth to sell plants at the Avon Park Oktoberfest. She asked members to have plants marked and help with the sale of the plants. The club will decorate Avon Park City Hall for Christmas again this year. Betty Scott will chair the committee for decorating. The club will have a booth at the springtime on the Mall Festival in Avon Park in March 2015. Hannah asked for someone to chair the committee. She also asked for someone to assist Scott with ordering and packaging caladium bulbs. Helbig was appointed to head the committee for the Yard Tour to be scheduled in the spring of 2015. The date of the December brunch was changed from Dec. 11 to Dec. 18 at the request of hostess Jody Grifng.Sebring Garden ClubSEBRING Twenty members and eight guests recently attended the Sebring Garden Clubs rst meeting of the 2014-2015 club year.

B10 | NEWS-SUN | Wednesday, October 1, 2014 www.newssun.com FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS Highway ParkBy Evelyn ColonLAKE PLACID As kids, my two older sisters and I would run barefoot across a certain area of Highway Park. The sand was so hot, we would bury our little feet under the sand to stop the burning or try to nd a clump of grass to stand on to cool them down. Sandspurs would hitch rides on our clothes or, worse yet, get stuck in our feet. This area was a great place to nd wild grass to make dolls ... the roots made great hair for braiding. We would catch dragonies we called skeeter hawks with clothes pins to make helicopters and make them lift sticks like cranes. Shoes were for school and church on Sunday. The truth is that when you are poor, no matter how responsible you are, you will still be broke in three days. Deciding on what is im portant now and how to stretch that dollar accounts for more. Except for a lone building serving as a rooming house, this area of Highway Park had remained unchanged for decades. Only a few weeks ago, 135 Curve St. was still just sand, weeds, and a few delapidated old trucks. Like the Phoenix, the site now has a new life and a new purpose. Redlands Christian Migrant Association has given a vital and much-needed lift to the community. The land is very nicely fenced, manicured, paved, and landscaped. The sandspurs have been conquered! This is just the start of many changes to come. Land has been cleared for the planned Village Green Community Park & Resource Center at 104/106 Washington St. The Highway Park Neighborhood Council invites everyone to join us on Saturday for an old-fashioned sh fry to help raise funds for the park. Dinners may be ordered in advance. Dont eat sh? Buy one for someone else to help serve the cause. For more information, call or text Tiffany at 863-840-2995. Timothy Hodges of Soul City Magazine is now interviewing residents of Highway Park for the Founders Day Souvenir Book. Family history, funny stories, lessons learned, and old pictures are much sought after. Join the HPNG for meetings every second Monday of each month at 7 p.m. at New Life Assembly Fellowship Hall.Placid Lakes Party LineBy Susie LeeLAKE PLACID The Placid Lakes Social Circle has stirred up quite a schedule for the fall and winter and the town hall will be buzzing with some new clubs along with all the regulars. Check out the new fall calendar on the information boards at the town hall; theres something for everyone. Saturday, Oct. 11, the Litter Patrol will do their rst clean-up starting at 8 a.m. There will be trash bags, gloves, grabbers and vests for the volunteers. We just go for a couple of hours until the heat gets the best of us; some crackers who are used to the Florida weather go a bit longer. Golf carts are a welcome sight, and even more so with a trailer. Lets all help to keep the village green! Volunteers are needed. The Hand and Foot Card players will meet Oct. 13 at 5 p.m. We welcome everyone who wants to play; we need regulars and alternates. Call Joyce Briski at 863-699-6331 or Bonnie at 863-4654888 to get on the list. The Dalton Gang has their meeting on Wednesday, Oct. 8 this month.

This is on Saturday, Oct. 25 from 1-4 p.m. The Dalton Gang will do it again. Everyone is welcome; come join us. Our terric garden club people, Efe Voltz and Marsha Price, planted 1,000 (Wow!) caladium bulbs at the Washington Northeast entrance of Placid Lakes. Thank you from all of us. Well be watching for that display.Tropical Harbor EstatesBy Arlene CloustonWe met on the rst day of Autumn for our BYOC co-ed coffee meeting on the carport of Peggy Sue Teague. We were sorry that Peggy Sue had been in the hospital. Though she was home, she till was not up to emceeing the meeting. Luetta Kiger lled in for her. It was nice to see so many of our vacationers are back: Carol Noel is back from Ireland; Carolyn and John Reece are back from Alabama; Jeanne and Ken Sylvia are back from Massachusetts, New York and Rhode Island; Ed and Marilyn Cromer are back from Dayton, Ohio. My husband, Bob, and I spent last weekend in Lakeland, visiting our son, Keith. Our Sunshine Person, Carol Noel, thanked Emily Snider for lling in for her during her absence. Luetta Kiger read the names of people having birthdays this coming week. Jerry Rau and Carolyn Reece were present so we sang Happy Birthday to them. The ladies of our park were invited to a Pajama Party Breakfast on Oct. 4 at the Elks Club in Lake Placid which is a Womans Clubfundraiser.

There will be brats on the grill, and German potato salad, beans and any German dish that you care to bring. The big if is will the Clubhouse be nished so that we can have our Halloween Party!? Carol Noel and Barbara Sweed took a trip to Ireland. Carol gave me a brief article on their activities of nearly two weeks. As she says: On Sept. 8, we left Tampa and landed in Dublin, Ireland, at 10:30 a.m. Sept. 9. That afternoon, we toured the Guinness Storehouse and had a taste of Guinness. That evening we went to dinner at the Arlington House where we had Irish music and dancing with our meal. The next day we vis ited Trinity College and saw the Book of Kells. On Wednesday, we left Dublin and headed for County Wicklaw where we toured St. Kevens Church, which is a sixth century church. We traveled the next day to Waterford and went to the House of Waterford and saw how they made the crystal. We left to go to Cashel and we visited the hallowed grounds of the Rock of Cashel. On Thursday, we journeyed to the village of Blarney where Barbara and I climbed the 110 spiral stairs to the top of Blarney Castle where we kissed the Blarney Stone. We then left for Kinsale, the seafood capital, where we had sh and chips. The next morning, we headed for Killarney where we had a big Irish breakfast and headed for a tour of Dingle Peninsula. On Saturday, we went to County Clare and had a boat ride on the River Shannon with tea and scones while a band played on the boat. We then headed to Galway and to the village of Knock and visited the Shrine of our Lady of Knock and then on to Letterkenny. We visited Glenveagh National Park and toured the 19th century castle of Glenveagh. Our next-to-last day, we went to Belfast and saw the Titanic Museum and our last day was spent in M aynooth University and St. Patrick Cathedral. Friday we boarded our plane back to USA after a wonderful 11 days in Ireland.
