Page 12 A familiar beat bumps from the stereo, though its a little mellowed out, slowed down to an easier moving pace. Exercisers room with a sound like horses galloping to the music. One arm twirls in the air while the other is held out in front, as if holding an invisible rein. Every once in a while, the instructor says, now slap that horse! And the stu dents laugh, taking a little whack toward their backsides, while keeping their hips swinging to the beat. Its not just the younger gen erations catching on to the newest dance trends seniors at Longwoods Village on the Green re tirement community want in on the fun, too. Theyve been doing the Gangnam Style dance in their exercise class for months now, and theyve mastered the moves far better than many young dance club goers. Robert Geller, 90, saw South Korean singer Psy and his moves on a late night talk show, and knew that he had to bring the dance idea to the exercise instructor at Village. Hed already intro duced Zumba to the class, which has seniors who are 68 years old all the way up to 92, with great success, so he knew this dance had potential. I was fascinated with the mu sic and the dancing, he said. He brought it to instructor Tre va McGowan, but she was a little skeptical, even thought it was a YOUR OWN HOME. YOUR OWN YARD.

Once a biker, skier and runner he could run upstairs faster than an elevator prime the challenge the class offers is a welcome one. McGowan said she mixes up the moves and the order they go in to keep the seniors on their toes. It makes their brain work dif ferently, she said. Now youve thrown them a curveball. Dancing is a great workout physically as well as mentally, McGowan said. Theres hand-eye coordination involved, balancing on one leg and remembering moves when dancing Gangnam Style. A 2003 study published by the New England Journal of Medicine found that seniors who do ballroom dancing at least twice a week are less likely to develop dementia. Its the only physical activity that has shown positive effects on the body and the mind. You have to stay busy mentally and physically, thats the key to longevity, Geller said. The seniors also said its im portant for them to keep trying new hobbies and challenging themselves to learn daily. Geller takes computer and Spanish classes, emails and plays sports at the Village on the Green. He takes Zumba, line and ballroom danc ing classes, too. I never danced before I came here, he said. Now they cant Ginny Engen, 90, and Garga glione also agreed that the social aspect of the class is what keeps them coming back. They get to laugh with each other, meet new people and share experiences over a coffee or lunch after class. Geller said a different type of life begins at retirement, and theyve all embraced it. You can sit at home and feel sorry for yourself, or you can en gage in activities, he said. We dont come here to die, we come here to live. Theres just one dance Geller said he doesnt quite get the hype wont catch him doing anytime soon the Harlem Shake, he said with a laugh. rfrntbrfrrfntbntftttntrfnnntt nrftrnf tnntffbnffnrfrn ftnnrfbnr fnfnnttbbnnrfnbfnrt tnrt rfntb nnfnrfrnbrttnrnnrrntrrnrfnttrrtnt tfnrntrfrtnffn ftrnrrnnrfnr nrr rfrtffn rrr rr at Winter Park Towers Your room is waiting for you if you need Pain and Symptom Management Hospital Follow-up Complex Treatments, or Crisis Care Referrals 866-742-6655#5019096 www.cornerstonehospice.org www.SeriousIllness.org/cornerstoneMedicare, Medicaid, most commercial insurances accepted Its not just about getting you back on your feet.

Page 16 An interesting study from the Univer sity of Pennsylvania shows that eating comfort food to help a bad mood actual ly can worsen the mood that the food was supposed to alleviate. In a paper presented recently at the American Psychosomatic Society conference in Miami, researchers revealed that positive moods didnt change one way or the other before or after eating comfort or junk food, but negative moods were made worse. While the study wasnt about seniors, and they used women participants who were much younger, the way they con ducted the study makes me believe it easily could apply to seniors. Subjects had computers to input their moods and foods, especially just before and after eating. In a study last year in the Public Health Nutrition Journal, researchers revealed that people who ate junk food were more likely to be depressed by 51 percent. The more junk, the more depression. One of the biggest concerns about seniors and junk food is that many of us have smaller appetites than before. If we turn to junk food, we might not have enough appetite left to eat food we should. And if we eat to help a bad mood, we could be making it worse.Matilda Charles regrets that she cannot personally answer reader questions, but will incorporate them into her column whenever possible.

Skip the junk food Most Older People Have DiverticulosisDEAR DR. DONOHUE:I am a 78-year-old female,active and in good health or so I thought. I eat right and never smoked or drank alcohol. Yesterday,a colonoscopy showed severe diverticulosis. The doctor prescribed Benefiber,then left and never returned. I am stunned. What do I do now? Will I have this forever? Am I unhealthy? How does one develop diverticulosis? What the difference between osisand itis? S.K. ANSWER:Your world isnt collapsing. Youre healthy. Youll have diverticulosis forever. By age 60,half of the people in North America have it. By age 80,two-thirds have it. A diverticulum is a bulge of the inner colon lining through the colons muscular wall to its outer surface. A diverticulum looks like a small soap bubble. Its only 1/5 to 2/5 inches (0.5 to 1 cm) in diameter. You can thank our diet for diverticulosis. We refine flour and throw away its bran the outer coat of grain. In countries where whole grains (including the bran) are commonly used,diverticulosis is a rarity. Bran and other fiber hold water in undigested food. Without fiber,the food residue dries and becomes hard. The colon muscles have to generate a great deal of force to keep it moving. That force causes the colon lining to pop through the colon wall as a diverticulum. For most,diverticulosis is a silent condition that remains silent for life. For a few,the diverticulum breaks and causes a local infection in the colon diverticulitis. The pain of a diverticulitis attack is usually felt in the lower left corner of the abdomen, and sometimes people have fever and chills along with the pain. The attack is treated by resting the tract and by giving antibiotics. Were supposed to get 30 grams of fiber a day. Fruits (especially those with edible skins),many vegetables and whole-grain products are the source of dietary fiber. If people cannot get enough fiber in their diet,then commercial products like the one youre taking fill the gap. Metamucil, Perdiem,Citrucel and Fiberall are other examples. The booklet on diverticulosis explains the ins and outs of this very common disorder. To order a copy, write:Dr. Donohue No. 502W,Box 536475,Orlando,FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipients printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. *** DEAR DR. DONOHUE:My husband has chronic blepharitis and frequently develops hard buildups in both eyes that cause great discomfort. The doctor must remove them two times a month. What can be done to prevent them? S.R. ANSWER:Blepharitis (BLEF-uhRYE-tiss) is inflammation of the eyelid margins,which become red and crusty. The crust can build up into hard deposits. A twice-a-day program of lid cleansing might eliminate the crusts. Have your husband apply warm compresses (a wet washcloth) to closed lids for five to 10 minutes and then massage the lids. After the massage,he cleanses the lid margins with a cotton-tipped applicator dipped in a solution of one part baby shampoo and one part water. The doctor might have to prescribe an antibiotic ointment. *** Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

All Rights ReservedHow Does Your Hospital Rate?It really DOES matter what hospital you go to when you need care. Your life could depend on it. So says the seventh annual study by HealthGrades. This is the same group that tracks doctors,hospitals and nursing homes and assigns a grade for the level of care. Its latest study reveals that your risk of death can be cut as much as 27 percent if you get your care at a Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence.To get that designation,a hospital has to pass a long list of criteria. The HealthGrades Web site [www.healthgrades.com] lists by state all of the Distinguishedhospitals. You can search (for free) for grades on a given hospital for any of dozens of medical conditions. Look for Research Hospitals on the front screen of the Web site. Its when you want a full report on a hospital that you have to pay a fee. Youll also have to pay a fee to check out a specific doctor or nursing home it costs money for the report. A much easier way to check on a hospital or doctor is on the governments Health and Human Services website [www.hospitalcompare.hhs .gov]. The HHS layout lets you compare multiple hospitals,right on the same screen. The information is very comprehensive,too. For example,one question concerns the percent of surgery patients who were given an antibiotic at the right time,within one hour before surgery. This is a small detail maybe,but crucial to ones recovery. To find out if there is a Distinguishedhospital in your area,check the HealthGrades Web site and then search for details at the HHS site. Still,if youre facing a major medical issue,perhaps paying for the HealthGrades report would give you needed extra information.

Since its inception in 1935, it has provided a desperately needed retirement income cushion to millions of senior citizens and certain disabled individuals for generations. trouble on the horizon. People are living many more years into retirement than planners banked on when they set up the system dur ing the Great Depression. In those days, it was common for people to work until age 60 or 65, and then pass away at 72. Now, retirees are still retiring at age 65 or 68 and living well into their the whole time.

In prior generations, 15 workers would contribute to the Social will fall to as low as three to one. Already the Social Security Administration is beginning to is taking in in premiums.

The best thing to do, while you are still in your working years, is to eliminate consumer debt as much as pos sible, and contribute as much as you can to savings and investments just as you would do if Social Security didnt exist. Some ideas: other forms of non-mortgage and non-investment debt.

Page 19 A wild start to conference play has left the Tars (17-13, 4-5) with a string of lopsided games in their wake, culminating in a series sweep of Eckerd last weekend on the diamond. Only one of Rollins nine Sun shine State Conference games so far has been decided by less than three runs. The rest have been a rollercoaster of blowouts, with the Tars letting Lynn win 38-4, then being swept by a Tampa team that scored a combined 37 runs in three games. Against Eckerd (13-16, 1-11), the Tars fought back. It started from the mound: Anthony FiHe would go on to strike out 10, pitching his second complete game of the season in the process. The batters made sure it wasnt even close. In game one the Tars capitalized on small ball to pick up enough runs for the win. Then as the sun sank past the horizon in Langley blasted a homer to try to on top 7-1. The next day, in what was set to be a grueling doubleheader pitching staff made it look easy. Starter Taylor Smith punched out lowing only four hits while strik ing out 10. Catcher Evan Rivera supplied an unusual combination and a walk with the bases loaded. The Tars cruised to a 7-1 win in that game. Tars dominated from the mound of shutout work. Center Fielder Zach Persky collected the most bases in the game, stealing two in an inning then smashing a basesclearing triple en route to three nale with an 8-2 score. After hosting Flagler at press time to try to avenge an 11-5 March 26 loss, the Tars will host 1 p.m. Saturday and 4 p.m. the same day.

After that theyll play two more at 3 p.m. April 6 and 2 p.m. April 7. Then theyll take on Inter state-4 rival USF (13-13, 3-1) at 7 p.m. April 10 in Tampa.

He was intentionally walked in the second inning, but gave up no walks while he was on the mound.ISAAC BABCOCK Observer Staff Tars on roller coaster ride in conference play

Page 20 Opinions Chris Jepson PerspectivesLouis Roney Play On!If you have ever wondered why Chicago was the source of so much danger ous Left-wing political thinking, look to the chief hell-raising, America-hating left ist Saul Alinsky who was headquartered there during the 20th century. American democracy is being altered by Saul Alinskys ideas, said TIME Magazine in the 1950s. It is strange to me that someone such as Alinsky, son of Russian-Jewish immigrants, sought and found here the very freedom that he later labored to change beyond recognition. Alinsky, like many other left-wingers, set out to destroy the very aspects of the U.S. Constitution that had bestowed his freedom upon place. This strange phenomenon occurs often among people who have had no freedom in their homeland. If they succeed in their negative desires here, they end up right back where who have fought against tyranny do not look upon the Alinskys of our country with much toleration. Alinskys footstep following of community organizers included: Hillary Clinton, Caesar Chavez, Huerta, Ralph Nader, Jesse Jackson and many other miscreants. This quixotic gang alas! penetrated far into our highest politics. In the 1930s, Alinsky organized the cago (made infamous by Upton Sinclairs ing conditions in the stockyards). Alinsky went on to found the Industrial Areas Foundation, which trained organizers and assisted in the creation of community organizations all around the country. In Alinskys 1971 book Rules for Radicals, he addressed the 1960s genera tion of radicals, outlining his instructions on organizing for mass power. In the opening paragraph Alinsky writes, What follows is for those who want to change the world from what it is, to what they believe it should be. The Prince was written by Machiavelli for the haves on how to hold power. Rules for Radicals is written for the have-nots on how to take it away. (Adolf Hitlers Mein Kampf and Mussolinis La mia vita are other notable examples of such ranting.) How many times does anyone who is a book showing others how to reach Christ is uniquely exemplary in not guar here on earth. Our politicians, both Republican and Democrat, promise a future of political and economic bliss if we will only vote so, Americans have already located such wonders as Jimmy Obamawould drawing straws, perhaps, have been any more destructive of our How much did we once study and revere the words and lives as such people as were the courageous souls who dragged a few poorly armed colonists out of the mire of servitude. America was built on a is to hang on to our values while enjoying the powers of the freedom, which is our national heritage. The Alinskys of the world are damned glad to take the gift of freedom we hand them, but we must be ever vigilant that they do not leave us holding the bag. Lord Actons words should never be forgotten: Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. The values of Washington, Jefferson, Eisenhower and Reagan must be preserved, or misuse of power will lead us to our own annihilation. America must not only be strongit must be good.About Roney: HarvardDistinguished Prof, Em.UCF 2004 Fla. Alliance for the Arts award (Assisted by beautiful wife Joy Roney)I consider the Second Amendment crowds argument on gun control spe cious. There are approximately 90 guns for every 100 residents. It is a percent age almost three times higher than most industrialized Western nations. I am not so interested in comparing Americas rates of gun related deaths to third-world nations located in Latin America or the Middle East. How is such informa tion relevant to how we live in America The ready availability of weapons in America does, in my opinion, impact sui cide rates, crimes of passion and the es a life-threatening confrontation. With so many weapons in circulation is it any wonder that guns are readily employed If I were a wishing man, I would wish that America had not gone down an historical path with so many weapons in circulation. I would not glorify the man-on-horseback Clint Eastwood-type avenging-angel, meting out immediate justice at the end of a gun barrel. Citizen gun ownership isnt what insures our democracy. As we understand our founding fathers intent, we quite logically would conclude that they did not envision an America with 30,000 annual gun deaths. Gun deaths are predicted to surpass traf So what do we do today about gun cans oppose any restrictions on gun conwill not support gun legislationof any type. And even if you outlawed 30-round magazines, the demented will simply employ 10 round clips with expeditious ability) are questionable weapons for an urbanized America, but I do not expect their curtailment. Mandatory background checks are about all we can hope for from the U.S. Congress. And that remains pretty iffy. I once read, years ago, that there are a minimum of 50 serial killers operating in America at any given time. Add another 100 million citizens and I imagine that number has substantially increased. The same goes for the wackos who com mit the tragedies associated with the recent slaughters in Aurora, Colo., and the Connecticut elementary school. There are a lot of deranged Americans your neighbor, a distant uncle, perhaps ticking time bombs simmering along go, murdering innocence. I do not think background checks will appreciably siftout the mentally disturbed. Or keep them from securing weapons. With fewer guns, we might have fewer tragedies (suicides, crimes of passion, domestic disputes, etc.) but we are not will be no legislation requiring anyone to surrender a weapon they now possess. That is not going to happen. Simply recall Charlton Hestons From my cold, dead hands! There are people in the Ameri can woodwork just waiting for such an apocalyptic event (Make My Day! A would do just that). We know how strongly you guys (Sec ond Amendment supporters) feel about your guns, well, the gals quite reasonably feel that way about their bodies. Imagine that. Logically, if you oppose gun control, youd oppose any infringement of a womans reproductive rights. If you want the government out of your holster, how about keeping the government out of America has made gun ownership an inviolable right something obscenely sacred but would make a woman controlling her own body a criminal.

Dr. Duncan proceeded to The Rollins College Walk of Fame, which includes such notables as Mr. Rogers, Maya Angelou, Harry Truman and Will Rogers. Thomas Edison got the idea for his Friend ship Walk from The Rollins College Walk of Fame, which he admired while carrying the honorary doctorate he had just received from Rollins. It would be the last of his honorary degrees. because her groundbreaking work in Pitts burgh was the model for The Historic Preservation Act of 1966, which created The Na tional Register of Historic Places. Rollins Annie Russell Theatre, Rollins Knowles Chapel, and nine other Winter Park build ings have received the designation. Very many years working to improve the plight of minorities in inner cities. Seven proclamations were read at The Rollins College Walk of Fame unveiling on March 14. The one that should get your atten tion was the one initiated by Will Graves miracle given our past history with overdevelopment issues in Winter Park. I was very touched by the gesture. For at least one day (and hopefully many, many more!), groundbreaking preservation ac complishment trumped special interests. It was truly a healing proclamation for Winter Park, and I hope that all of you will join me in congratulating and thanking what has been a deeply divided town in recent years.

One arm twirls in the air while the other is held out in front, as if holding an invisible rein. Every once in a while, the instructor says, now slap that horse! And the stu dents laugh, taking a little whack toward their backsides, while keeping their hips swinging to the beat. Its not just the younger gen erations catching on to the newest dance trends seniors at Long woods Village on the Green re tirement community want in on the fun, too. Theyve been doing the Gangnam Style dance in their exercise class for months now, and theyve mastered the moves far better than many young dance club goers. Robert Geller, 90, saw South Korean singer Psy and his moves on a late night talk show, and knew that he had to bring the dance idea to the exercise instruc tor at Village. Hed already intro duced Zumba to the class, which has seniors who are 68 years old all the way up to 92, with great success, so he knew this dance had potential. I was fascinated with the mu sic and the dancing, he said. He brought it to instructor Tre va McGowan, but she was a little skeptical, even thought it was a YOUR OWN HOME. YOUR OWN YARD.

So she studied the dance, found some slower music with a similar beat and Theres still the signature horse riding gallop, the lasso move and the spins, but at a slower pace and sometimes done sitting down. never losing the groove and swag ger that makes the dance so fun. The seniors dont let age get in the way of trying new things. They are so open to any thing, McGowan said. Lou Gargaglione, 74, said he likes the faster pace of the Gang nam Style dance. Once a biker, skier and runner he could run upstairs faster than an elevator prime the challenge the class of fers is a welcome one. McGowan said she mixes up the moves and the order they go in to keep the seniors on their toes. It makes their brain work dif ferently, she said. Now youve thrown them a curveball. Dancing is a great workout physically as well as mentally, McGowan said. Theres hand-eye coordination involved, balanc ing on one leg and remembering moves when dancing Gangnam Style. A 2003 study published by the New England Journal of Medicine found that seniors who do ballroom dancing at least twice a week are less likely to develop dementia. Its the only physical activity that has shown positive effects on the body and the mind. You have to stay busy men tally and physically, thats the key to longevity, Geller said. The seniors also said its im portant for them to keep trying new hobbies and challenging themselves to learn daily. Geller takes computer and Spanish classes, emails and plays sports at the Village on the Green. He takes Zumba, line and ballroom danc ing classes, too. I never danced before I came here, he said.

You can sit at home and feel sorry for yourself, or you can en gage in activities, he said. We dont come here to die, we come here to live.

Page 16 An interesting study from the Univer sity of Pennsylvania shows that eating comfort food to help a bad mood actual ly can worsen the mood that the food was supposed to alleviate. In a paper presented recently at the American Psychosomatic Society conference in Miami, research ers revealed that positive moods didnt change one way or the other before or after eating comfort or junk food, but negative moods were made worse. While the study wasnt about seniors, and they used women participants who were much younger, the way they con ducted the study makes me believe it easily could apply to seniors. Subjects had computers to input their moods and foods, especially just before and after eating. In a study last year in the Public Health Nutrition Journal, researchers revealed that people who ate junk food were more likely to be depressed by 51 percent. The more junk, the more depression. One of the biggest concerns about seniors and junk food is that many of us have smaller appetites than before. If we turn to junk food, we might not have enough appetite left to eat food we should. And if we eat to help a bad mood, we could be making it worse. Matilda Charles regrets that she cannot personally answer reader questions, but will incorporate them into her column whenever possible.

Skip the junk food Most Older People Have DiverticulosisDEAR DR. DONOHUE:I am a 78-year-old female,active and in good health or so I thought. I eat right and never smoked or drank alcohol. Yesterday,a colonoscopy showed severe diverticulosis. The doctor prescribed Benefiber,then left and never returned. I am stunned. What do I do now? Will I have this forever? Am I unhealthy? How does one develop diverticulosis? What the difference between osisand itis? S.K. ANSWER:Your world isnt collapsing. Youre healthy. Youll have diverticulosis forever. By age 60,half of the people in North America have it. By age 80,two-thirds have it. A diverticulum is a bulge of the inner colon lining through the colons muscular wall to its outer surface. A diverticulum looks like a small soap bubble. Its only 1/5 to 2/5 inches (0.5 to 1 cm) in diameter. You can thank our diet for diverticulosis. We refine flour and throw away its bran the outer coat of grain. In countries where whole grains (including the bran) are commonly used,diverticulosis is a rarity. Bran and other fiber hold water in undigested food. Without fiber,the food residue dries and becomes hard. The colon muscles have to generate a great deal of force to keep it moving. That force causes the colon lining to pop through the colon wall as a diverticulum. For most,diverticulosis is a silent condition that remains silent for life. For a few,the diverticulum breaks and causes a local infection in the colon diverticulitis. The pain of a diverticulitis attack is usually felt in the lower left corner of the abdomen, and sometimes people have fever and chills along with the pain. The attack is treated by resting the tract and by giving antibiotics. Were supposed to get 30 grams of fiber a day. Fruits (especially those with edible skins),many vegetables and whole-grain products are the source of dietary fiber. If people cannot get enough fiber in their diet,then commercial products like the one youre taking fill the gap. Metamucil, Perdiem,Citrucel and Fiberall are other examples. The booklet on diverticulosis explains the ins and outs of this very common disorder. To order a copy, write:Dr. Donohue No. 502W,Box 536475,Orlando,FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipients printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. *** DEAR DR. DONOHUE:My husband has chronic blepharitis and frequently develops hard buildups in both eyes that cause great discomfort. The doctor must remove them two times a month. What can be done to prevent them? S.R. ANSWER:Blepharitis (BLEF-uhRYE-tiss) is inflammation of the eyelid margins,which become red and crusty. The crust can build up into hard deposits. A twice-a-day program of lid cleansing might eliminate the crusts. Have your husband apply warm compresses (a wet washcloth) to closed lids for five to 10 minutes and then massage the lids. After the massage,he cleanses the lid margins with a cotton-tipped applicator dipped in a solution of one part baby shampoo and one part water. The doctor might have to prescribe an antibiotic ointment. *** Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

All Rights ReservedHow Does Your Hospital Rate?It really DOES matter what hospital you go to when you need care. Your life could depend on it. So says the seventh annual study by HealthGrades. This is the same group that tracks doctors,hospitals and nursing homes and assigns a grade for the level of care. Its latest study reveals that your risk of death can be cut as much as 27 percent if you get your care at a Distinguished Hospital for Clinical Excellence.To get that designation,a hospital has to pass a long list of criteria. The HealthGrades Web site [www.healthgrades.com] lists by state all of the Distinguishedhospitals. You can search (for free) for grades on a given hospital for any of dozens of medical conditions. Look for Research Hospitals on the front screen of the Web site. Its when you want a full report on a hospital that you have to pay a fee. Youll also have to pay a fee to check out a specific doctor or nursing home it costs money for the report. A much easier way to check on a hospital or doctor is on the governments Health and Human Services website [www.hospitalcompare.hhs .gov]. The HHS layout lets you compare multiple hospitals,right on the same screen. The information is very comprehensive,too. For example,one question concerns the percent of surgery patients who were given an antibiotic at the right time,within one hour before surgery. This is a small detail maybe,but crucial to ones recovery. To find out if there is a Distinguishedhospital in your area,check the HealthGrades Web site and then search for details at the HHS site. Still,if youre facing a major medical issue,perhaps paying for the HealthGrades report would give you needed extra information.

Since its inception in 1935, it has provided a desperately needed retirement income cushion to millions of senior citizens and certain disabled individuals for generations. trouble on the horizon. People are living many more years into retirement than planners banked on when they set up the system dur ing the Great Depression. In those days, it was common for people to work until age 60 or 65, and then pass away at 72. Now, retirees are still retiring at age 65 or 68 and living well into their the whole time.

Some ideas: other forms of non-mortgage and non-investment debt.

Page 19 A wild start to conference play has left the Tars (17-13, 4-5) with a string of lopsided games in their wake, culminating in a series sweep of Eckerd last weekend on the diamond. Only one of Rollins nine Sun shine State Conference games so far has been decided by less than three runs. The rest have been a rollercoaster of blowouts, with the Tars letting Lynn win 38-4, then being swept by a Tampa team that scored a combined 37 runs in three games. Against Eckerd (13-16, 1-11), the Tars fought back. It started from the mound: Anthony Fi He would go on to strike out 10, pitching his second complete game of the season in the process. The batters made sure it wasnt even close. In game one the Tars capitalized on small ball to pick up enough runs for the win. Then as the sun sank past the horizon in Langley blasted a homer to try to on top 7-1. The next day, in what was set to be a grueling doubleheader pitching staff made it look easy. Starter Taylor Smith punched out lowing only four hits while strik ing out 10. Catcher Evan Rivera supplied an unusual combination and a walk with the bases loaded. The Tars cruised to a 7-1 win in that game. Tars dominated from the mound of shutout work. Center Fielder Zach Persky collected the most bases in the game, stealing two in an inning then smashing a basesclearing triple en route to three nale with an 8-2 score. After hosting Flagler at press time to try to avenge an 11-5 March 26 loss, the Tars will host 1 p.m. Saturday and 4 p.m. the same day.

Page 20 Opinions Chris Jepson Perspectives Louis Roney Play On! If you have ever wondered why Chi cago was the source of so much danger ous Left-wing political thinking, look to the chief hell-raising, America-hating left ist Saul Alinsky who was headquartered there during the 20th century. American democracy is being altered by Saul Alinskys ideas, said TIME Magazine in the 1950s. It is strange to me that someone such as Alinsky, son of Russian-Jewish immigrants, sought and found here the very freedom that he later labored to change beyond recognition. Alinsky, like many other left-wingers, set out to destroy the very aspects of the U.S. Constitution that had bestowed his freedom upon place. This strange phenomenon occurs often among people who have had no freedom in their home land. If they succeed in their negative de sires here, they end up right back where who have fought against tyranny do not look upon the Alinskys of our country with much toleration. Alinskys footstep following of community organizers included: Hillary Clinton, Caesar Chavez, Huerta, Ralph Nader, Jesse Jackson and many other miscreants. This quixotic gang alas! penetrated far into our highest politics. In the 1930s, Alinsky organized the cago (made infamous by Upton Sinclairs ing conditions in the stockyards). Alinsky went on to found the Industrial Areas Foundation, which trained organizers and assisted in the creation of community organizations all around the country. In Alinskys 1971 book Rules for Radicals, he addressed the 1960s genera tion of radicals, outlining his instructions on organizing for mass power. In the opening paragraph Alinsky writes, What follows is for those who want to change the world from what it is, to what they believe it should be. The Prince was written by Machiavelli for the haves on how to hold power. Rules for Radicals is written for the have-nots on how to take it away. (Adolf Hitlers Mein Kampf and Mussolinis La mia vita are other notable examples of such ranting.) How many times does anyone who is a book showing others how to reach Christ is uniquely exemplary in not guar here on earth. Our politicians, both Republican and Democrat, promise a future of political and economic bliss if we will only vote so, Americans have already located such wonders as Jimmy Obamawould drawing straws, perhaps, have been any more destructive of our How much did we once study and revere the words and lives as such people as were the courageous souls who dragged a few poorly armed colonists out of the mire of servitude. America was built on a is to hang on to our values while enjoying the powers of the freedom, which is our national heritage. The Alinskys of the world are damned glad to take the gift of freedom we hand them, but we must be ever vigilant that they do not leave us holding the bag. Lord Actons words should never be forgotten: Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. The values of Washington, Jefferson, Eisenhower and Reagan must be pre served, or misuse of power will lead us to our own annihilation. America must not only be strongit must be good. About Roney: HarvardDistinguished Prof, Em.UCF 2004 Fla. Alliance for the Arts award (Assisted by beautiful wife Joy Roney) I consider the Second Amendment crowds argument on gun control spe cious. There are approximately 90 guns for every 100 residents. It is a percent age almost three times higher than most industrialized Western nations. I am not so interested in comparing Americas rates of gun related deaths to third-world nations located in Latin America or the Middle East. How is such informa tion relevant to how we live in America The ready availability of weapons in America does, in my opinion, impact sui cide rates, crimes of passion and the es a life-threatening confrontation. With so many weapons in circulation is it any wonder that guns are readily employed If I were a wishing man, I would wish that America had not gone down an historical path with so many weapons in circulation. I would not glorify the man-on-horseback Clint Eastwood-type avenging-angel, meting out immediate justice at the end of a gun barrel. Citizen gun ownership isnt what insures our democracy. As we understand our founding fathers intent, we quite logically would conclude that they did not envision an America with 30,000 annual gun deaths. Gun deaths are predicted to surpass traf So what do we do today about gun cans oppose any restrictions on gun con will not support gun legislationof any type. And even if you outlawed 30-round magazines, the demented will simply employ 10 round clips with expeditious ability) are questionable weapons for an urbanized America, but I do not expect their curtailment. Mandatory background checks are about all we can hope for from the U.S. Congress. And that remains pretty iffy. I once read, years ago, that there are a minimum of 50 serial killers operat ing in America at any given time. Add another 100 million citizens and I imagine that number has substantially increased. The same goes for the wackos who com mit the tragedies associated with the recent slaughters in Aurora, Colo., and the Connecticut elementary school. There are a lot of deranged Americans your neighbor, a distant uncle, perhaps ticking time bombs simmering along go, murdering innocence. I do not think background checks will appreciably siftout the mentally disturbed. Or keep them from securing weapons. With fewer guns, we might have fewer tragedies (suicides, crimes of passion, domestic disputes, etc.) but we are not will be no legislation requiring anyone to surrender a weapon they now possess. That is not going to happen. Simply recall Charlton Hestons From my cold, dead hands! There are people in the Ameri can woodwork just waiting for such an apocalyptic event (Make My Day! A would do just that). We know how strongly you guys (Sec ond Amendment supporters) feel about your guns, well, the gals quite reasonably feel that way about their bodies. Imagine that. Logically, if you oppose gun control, youd oppose any infringement of a womans reproductive rights. If you want the government out of your holster, how about keeping the government out of America has made gun ownership an inviolable right something obscenely sacred but would make a woman con trolling her own body a criminal.

Letters to the editor Send your thoughts (400 words or less) to Managing Editor Isaac Babcock at ibabcock@turnstilemediagroup.com A healing proclamation for Winter Park On March 14, 2013, Rollins College President Lewis Duncan read a Winter Park Hoffstot Day. Dr. Duncan proceeded to The Rollins College Walk of Fame, which includes such notables as Mr. Rogers, Maya Angelou, Harry Truman and Will Rogers. Thomas Edison got the idea for his Friend ship Walk from The Rollins College Walk of Fame, which he admired while carrying the honorary doctorate he had just received from Rollins. It would be the last of his honorary degrees. because her groundbreaking work in Pitts burgh was the model for The Historic Pres ervation Act of 1966, which created The Na tional Register of Historic Places. Rollins Annie Russell Theatre, Rollins Knowles Chapel, and nine other Winter Park build ings have received the designation. Very many years working to improve the plight of minorities in inner cities. Seven proclamations were read at The Rollins College Walk of Fame unveiling on March 14. The one that should get your atten tion was the one initiated by Will Graves miracle given our past history with overde velopment issues in Winter Park. I was very touched by the gesture. For at least one day (and hopefully many, many more!), groundbreaking preservation ac complishment trumped special interests. It was truly a healing proclamation for Winter Park, and I hope that all of you will join me in congratulating and thanking what has been a deeply divided town in recent years.
