The city of Oviedo and Ovie do Citizens in Action present the 12th annual Martin Luther King Jr. Parade starting at 10 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 20. The parade trav els down Broadway Street from Oviedo High School to Round Lake Park, showcasing the Ovie do High School Band, Valencia College, local Girl Scout troops and many other organizations coming together to celebrate Dr. King. There were many brave lead ers over the years who fought for civil rights, but nobody fought harder than Martin Luther King Jr., Oviedo Mayor Dominic Persampiere said. Just what he stands for quality of life to all it is a testament that has stood the test of time. The Oviedo celebration con tinues around 11 a.m. at Round Lake Park with food vendors, guest speakers, live music and the announcement of a new Mar tin Luther King Jr. monument set to be unveiled at the park on a date between late February and early March. The monument will depict an open Bible laid on a granite plat form, which will bear the likeness of Martin Luther King Jr., Recre ation and Parks Director Dru Boulware said. Its important that they un derstand Dr. Kings legacy and that what he did was for all peo ple, anyone who was in need, said Kathy Hunt, Dr. King Pa rade director for Oviedo Citizens in Action.

Scottish dancers weave their feet into a blur, their tartan skirts kicking up with each controlled bounce as if they were shod with springs. And, no matter where you wander, the sound of bag pipes follows. The sights, sounds and smells are all Scotland, but if youre a Central Florida resident, you dont have to leave home to expe rience it. This weekend marks the 37th year that the Central Florida Scottish Highland Games will be held at Central Winds Park in Winter Springs. Our goal is for everyone to hear a bagpipe playing in the park whether you like it or not, said a laughing Chuck McGrew, vice president of the Scottish-Ameri can Society of Central Florida, the group that puts on the event. The Games are the biggest event in Seminole County and the largest Highland Games in the Southeast, with 22,000 attendees last year. Organizers expect to have similar attendance numbers this year. The Games have athlet ics events to watch and participate Highland Dancers showing off some traditional moves, beer and Scotch whisky tastings, and an award-winning Merida look-alike all the way from Scotland who will be there to impress fans of the chery. The bravest of visitors can try a plate of haggis a traditional Scottish dish thats a savory pud ding of sheeps heart, liver and lungs encased in its stomach. We do our best to present Scottish culture to the community in every way possible, McGrew said. Its a little bit of Scotland for two days. A new addition to this years Games is the Quidditch demo tournament. The game made fa mous by J.K. Rowlings Harry Potter series of books has been to the ground by universities all over the world. Teams from Rol lins College and the University of Central Florida will compete against each other, and Sunrise Elementary School players will show the kids attending how its done. Tina Gordon Leslie brought the idea to the Games orga nizers, and got quite a few puzzled looks. Theyll go either, Whats that? or Re ally, when did that become a real game? Leslie said. Its a little bit of fantasy because its a game that start ed out in a story book. She hopes that it will bring Harry Potter lovers to the High land Games, and introduce the sport, which she calls a mix of basketball, dodge ball, soccer and rugby, to a new crowd of action lovers. The game is incredibly excit ing, Leslie said. Its a tough, rough-and-tumble game. While organizers are all about having fun, they also want their visitors to dig a little deeper while at the Games, especially if they have Scottish heritage theyd like to learn about. More than 40 clans will be represented and those in terested in learning about their namesake can stop by their tent. Chip Crawford, president of the Scottish-American Society of Cen tral Florida, learned about his family history through attending the Games, and found an amaz ing sense of self in the process. He said hes proud to be a part of sharing that experience with as many people he can. Looking at your roots has got to give you some insight into who you are, Crawford said. The games give you the opportunity to scratch the surface. But you dont have to be a Scot to be welcomed at the Games, you just have to want to have a little fun, and of course bear the blare of bagpipes, Crawford said. part of the big clan of humanity.

But UConn (13-3, 1-2) turned the Knights only American Ath letic Conference loss into a trend with an 84-61 trouncing in Storrs, Conn. In that game the Knights (9-5, 1-2), who had gotten used to see ing double-digit scoring by four by Isaiah Sykes with 17 points, and Tristan Spurlock and Eugene McCrory who barely made their way into double digits. The Huskies depth showed, as they played 14 players in the game, gaining 41 points from the bench. The Knights only used four backup players all night, get ting a mere 12 points from them in a combined 50 minutes on the court. The Huskies dominated in the paint, out-rebounding the Knights 50-33, with a yawning 32-19 gap on offensive rebounds. The Knights frequently failed to get second chances at the basket, and that may have cost them the margin of victory. The Knights took 64 shots to the Huskies 63, but picked up 13 less offensive rebounds when shots were off the mark. The Huskies converted that into 21 second chance shots to the Knights 10. That may have been because of the Huskies aggressive defense, which forced the Knights to shoot one of their worst games in years, with only 31.3 per cent of shots fall ing. Kasey Wilson, who had played the role of the Knights sharpshooter in their takedown of Temple, hit just one of his seven shot at tempts on the night. Credit that low shooting percentage also to the Huskies 14 blocked shots on the night to the Knights two. The game had started out promisingly for the Knights, who went on a 6-0 scoring run to start Huskies already had a lead they would never relinquish. The Knights seemed to come alive early in the second half when they whittled an 11-point Huskies lead down to four points just two minutes into the sec ond half.

Then hold on to this list and check your progress in six weeks (the time it takes to make a change into a habit.) 1. Go for food from the farm. If it comes from a factory and in a box, it is likely to have oodles of sugar and/or salt. 2. Be colorful. Select a wide range of colors of fruits and veg etables. 3. Use a smaller plate. 4. Write down what you eat or try a free food and exercise app, like Lose It! Theres nothing like accountability, even to yourself, to keep you on track. 5. Plan your meals ahead of time. 6. Put some protein, such as nuts, beans, meat and cheese into each meal. 7. Pack your lunch. 8. Drink plenty of water. 9. Know how to read labels. 10. Determine how much is in one serving. 11. Remember it takes 20 min utes before your brain knows you have eaten enough. 12. Eat slowly. 13. Dont forget liquid calories beer and other forms of alcohol have over 100 calories. 14. Replace soda, which is liq uid sugar water with bubbles and no nutritional value, with water. 15. Add calcium-rich foods to your life, like fat-free yogurts, milk and cheeses. 16. Fill half your plate with vegetables and one-fourth with protein. 17. Try fruit or low fat crackers for snacks. 18. Aim for limited fats.

Two dozen tips for healthy eating in 2014 Dr. Nancy Rudner Health Action DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My husband is 6-feet 4-inches tall and weighs 170 pounds. He is a com petitive distance runner. He loves Kool-Aid and calculates that in a year he drinks 150 pounds of sugar in Kool-Aid alone. A friend told him if he continues this habit, he might develop diabetes. Can a skinny, athletic person de velop diabetes from consuming sugar? S.B. ANSWER: Although sugar is half the name of sugar diabetes, sugar doesnt cause diabetes. Its a popular belief that it does, but it doesnt. People with diabetes are careful to watch their sugar intake, and they watch their total carbohydrate intake, but diabet ics dont have to eliminate sugar completely from their lives. Type 1 diabetes, the kind that requires insulin to control, often has its onset in younger years. Its due to a destruction of the insu lin-making cells of the pancreas. Sugar has nothing to do with it. Type 2 diabetes comes about from a decline in insulin produc tion along with a decline in its effectiveness. Ninety percent of Type 2 diabetics are overweight, and weight loss helps them control their blood sugar. Physi cal inactivity also contributes to Type 2 diabetes. So do genes. Again, its not the sugar intake that produces this common type of diabetes. But monitoring the intake of sugar is important for control of this variety of diabetes. The booklet on diabetes pres ents this illness and its treatments in detail. Readers can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue No. 402W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash) for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipi ents printed name and address. DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I think I may have the illness where a person pulls out clumps of hair. Im not sure of the name. I I have been off caffeine for 25 years, and I do not pull my hair out. I thought this might be help ful to others. K.H. ANSWER: The name of the condition is trichotillomania (TRICK-ohTILL-uh-MAY-kneeuh). Between 4 million and 11 million Americans have it. Its called an impulse disorder. I hadnt heard about a caffeine connection. If this holds true for others, they will deeply appreci ate your advice. Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible.

Seminole Voice | Jan. 17, 2014 | Page 7 VOI C ES THIS WEEK IN POLITICAL HISTORY Like any good gardener, exacting a greater harvest from given resources is always spurring our creative dreams. Gar den math is actually quite easy; side-length times side-length equals the square area of the garden. Given that a bean needs about 6 square inches of space to prosper, simple division will provide the answer of how many seeds should be planted. If vide 1 pound of beans, the expected harvest can be calculated to the ounce. Sounds almost boring. Time to innovate in a new dimension: up. Gardening in the third dimension is as simple as building a trellis. (Whenever anyone uses the term simple my bullchip alarm sounds a warning.) Cucum bers, indeterminate tomatoes, peas, pole beans, grapes, and some squash plants require vertical support to produce at full potential. Manufactured trellises such as tomato rings, although quick to the rescue of sprawling vines, are usually too small to accomplish their intended purpose while cumbersome to store for later use. Many gardens already have a trellis on hand, masquerading as the perimeter fence. Or, like any prosperous homesteader, we can build our own. Most of the planting areas of my garden are set up as 3-foot-wide growing beds. A 4-foot-tall piece of fence approximately 7 feet long with the ends tied together a growing bed. Mulch the middle space to control weeds and plant four tomatoes around the outside perimeter of the ring. Some crops need manual manipulation to cling to their support. In this case, train the tomato plant onto the trellis ring by weav ing the vines into the fence grids. When this seasons harvest is done, clean the trel lis ring and it is turnkey ready for another location and crop. A trellis, using most any kind of fence material, can be run the length down the middle of a longer growing bed. Metal T posts are best for support every 8 feet, and both ends of the run should be braced using diagonal posts. Pull the fence tautly. Mulch along the base of the trellis fence, then plant seeds 6 inches out on both sides. Peas and pole beans, with their selfclimbing tendrils, attach to the fence quite readily. Almost any type of material can be drafted into trellis duty: bamboo poles, downed tree limbs, biodegradable string, is not always better when height requires a ladder for harvest. Once plants cover the trellis, the surface area is a sail in a strong wind, so be sure everything is securely anchored.

And then, just after my semester ends in December, or May, or August, I schedule long-overdue oil changes and haircuts and dental ap pointments. A few weeks ago, at the close of the lowed to build while immersed in teach ings daily tedium: the piles of unread (and hopefully non-urgent) mail, the stacks of magazines, the abandoned safety pins from various 5K bibs, the old printerpaper boxes now stuffed withwho knows what? And I convinced myself that now, with a hint of free time before classes Except, well, putting things away wasnt as easy as Id imagined. Im expected to be part of the gen eration for which iTunes purchases are everything on the phone (completely paper-free). But my dirty secret is that I do struggle to go digital. My desk is littered with Post-its thatwere I more technologi cally adeptmight instead be rendered in some task-list app. switched to e-statements for my bank ac count, and my phone bills (still delivered via postal service) contain each month some new snarky message about how Im killing the environment by not going paper-free. (Every month I try to log in and change this, only to be rebuffed by for gotten usernames and passwords andaw hell, what with identity theft and the 200 passwords I must remember to avoid it, and with deep fears of a Revolution-style power outage that dissipates the cloud and all of my data, its a wonder I do anything paperless.) Im 33, and feel like Im living in a generational No Mans Land between digital dependency and digital illiteracy. After all, its considered okay for my parents to have boxes of old home movies, and mushrooms, but I am expected to be above any such attachment to outdated mediums or print artifacts. Heck, I used to make fun of my fathers bulky record collection (stored, no joke, in an old phone booth that my parents keep in their foyer), or my mothers full bookshelf dedicated to 1970s encyclopedias. I snottily bemoaned their collections of old crap; Id grown up with Microsoft Encarta in the s, then made my seamless transition to Google searches and Wikipedia in the 2000s. How foolish to own encyclopedias! But now the jokes on me. Unlike the younger, paper-free iGeneration, Ive mostly lived a pre-cloud life. My s were consumed with CD purchasing, and so I have shelves of discs from middle and high school (Hey look, the Waynes World soundtrack!); my wifes CDs are there, too, the entire catalogue of Backstreet Boys and Boyz II Men. My generation popularized Napster and the MP3 movement, sure, but we also have boxes of leftover Goo normal turn-of-the-century life. Not long ago, the homes of my generational peers were also cluttered with DVDs that we shouldnt have purchased (see: the ALF boxed set), and with video rental boxes we had to keep in prominent places so that we wouldnt forget to return them, thus accru ing late fees. Clutter feltnormal. But now, theres no Blockbuster, and entertainment is of cinema accessible through iPads and Blu-ray playerswere not supposed to own physical objectsBut still, many of us are burdened by those tons of plastic discs. But for someone my age, its the photo graphs that are the worst. There are old photo albums in my Who still buys physical photo albums? The crunchy plastic pagesthe awkward triangular shape that disrupted the perfect line of books on your shelf? Much is made about how quickly kids grow up in the Facebook Era, but heres where kids have it good: They dont have to open their scanners and, over and over again, transfer year-old photos that were once prized possessions, but whose quality is worse than the accidental pictures you take on your iPhone. Let me be clear: Im not a hoarder. I want to live digital and uncluttered. But just when I make progress with conver sions, some other physical object is made irrelevant by a new app or web site. My generation is expected to negotiate the spaces between print and digital, to con vert to digital what had been physical for a lifetime, but we dont get the pass that is handed out to someone 10 years older were not the old Mom joining Facebook and accidentally tagging her son in a pic ture of her dogif it wasnt for us, there would be no Facebook. shoe-boxed for years. And for one full day this December, I plugged my camcorder into my computer and transferred two years worth of videos. My son running around in his Where the Wild Things Are Halloween costume, or riding Its a Small I rotated videos. Created folders. Renamed so terrible as in the days of videocassettes. The current generation will never know the awfulness of searching boxes of VHS nostalgic mothers. Still, despite how amazing it sounds to live in the cloud, the digital uncluttering has become not liberating but exhausting. When the photos are scanned and the CDs are ripped, will I then spend full weekends uncluttering my desktop, endlessly organizing folders on my devices, trying to make the digital information ever more ac cessible, editing Easter to perfection, searching for the most recent digital tasklist that I commended myself for having typed on my phonebut which has long since disappeared into the haze of clutter obscuring the screens of my devices? Perhaps. Or maybe I have nothing to fear. If I just procrastinate long enough, maybe photo albums and VHS tapes will come back into style.
