HOSPITAL | Company building hospital has checkered past C ONTINUED FROM FRONT PAGE An Oviedo mother accused of killing her 17-year-old daughter in January was ruled mentally in competent to stand trial by a San ford judge last Friday and ordered to be transferred to a state mental hospital. Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. made the decision after reviewing reports from two psychologists chosen to observe the mental state of suspect Sujatha Guduru. State clinical psychologist Daniel Tressler and psychologist Deborah Day both declared the 44-year-old mother to be mentally incompetent. Ms. Guduru is suffering from a major mental illness and is pres ently in a psychotic state, Gudu rus defense attorney Brian Bieber said. Ms. Guduru is unable to as sist me or council in the defense of her case. Shes also unable to ap preciate the consequences of what is actually going on in the court room. laws in the U.S. were ultimately responsible for the tragedy. We should not forget that the only reason why we are here in this case is because a mentally ill woman was able to walk into the shoot someone while in a psychot ic state, Bieber said. Our gun control laws in the United States are wholly inade quate and we ought to be ashamed of the pathetic checks and balanc es we have in our country on the The ruling from Judge Lester comes four months after police ar rived at the Guduru home on Jan. 27 in response to a reported shoot ing inside. Prasad Chittaluru had received an email from her sister, Guduru, at 6:30 that morning saying that she wanted to harm herself and her daughter, Chetana. He arrived at the home of his sister and niece ter bedroom with a gray revolver nearby, according to an arrest af partment. Chetana suffered a gunshot wound to the head and Guduru had what appeared to be a selfGuduru recovered from her wound while Chetana was pro nounced dead at 9:28 a.m. The Oviedo mother was later Bieber told the Orlando Sen tinel that Guduru had been hos pitalized previously for a mental illness on three other occasions and is currently in the middle of a psychotic break. Meier Clinics, a counseling and mental healthcare scribed the state as a break with reality, caused by a dopamine im balance in the brain, resulting in delusions and/or hallucinations, usually auditory. A psychotic break occurs in one out every 33 people in the world at any given time and are known to result in the death or injury of others, according to Meier Clinics. Guduru will be transferred to two weeks and will remain there for several months while receiving antipsychotic medication to re store her competency, Bieber said. An update on her progress will be provided to the court if she stays Based on Ms. Gudurus psy chiatric and psychotic history, we do not anticipate that shell Bieber said.

a strange life, hes a guy whos lived a full life and it hasnt done anything for him, he still wants to know what the meaning of life is. Producer Dean Zanuck said it was a miracle the screenplay end ed up at a major movie produc tion company, or that hed even read it. And it was even more of a miracle that it got made at all. It isnt your average purely-forand thoughtfulness, Zanuck said. And thats a tough one to sell, but he believed in it. I really just go off my in stincts and intuition, what com pelled me here, sometimes its an intangible thing, sometimes its immediately the originality and the world that Pat has created scored high marks for me, he said. This stood out. Rushin said the call from Za nucks production company was one hed been waiting for his director and get to work. Then it was 10 more years, Rushin said. Ewan McGregor signed on as the star and had to drop out. Billy Bob Thornton, who threw off the schedule because he didnt want fear of antiques yes, antiques couldnt match up his timing with Terry Gilliam, and had to drop the project. There were a couple times I felt like it would never be made, Rushin said. It was a rollercitement, Id be all up, Id do a rewrite and then Ewan McGregor drops out of the project, and then its like crash, its like starting all over. nally aligned. The cast and crew million movie in 37 days. Rushin spent a week on the set, where he had a canvas folding chair with his name embroidered on the back. From that vantage, he watched his written words be come the burnt-up, crumbling chapel Waltzs character calls home. The gritty streets of Ro mania formed his gray, dreary world. I got a kick out of watching him in awe of what he got start ed, Zanuck said. He created the foundation and the blueprint for all of this. Another highlight for Rushin was seeing his movie premiere at the Austin Fantastic Fest. He remembers being pretty amused when he overheard a couple of guys at urinals arguing about the meaning of the movies ending. He wants The Zero Theorem to inspire people to think. I like that, I like the fact that theyre debating, but I dont want to just hand it out, heres the an swer, he said. I think its a mov ie, I hope its a movie that you come up with your own answer. So no, he wont tell you what it all means. You can take a cue from his main character, who on life because hes been waiting on someone else to tell him what to do with it. Youre not meant to be told what the meaning of life is, perience it yourself.

Voices! Kids at the Central Florida BBQ Blowout event at Oviedo Mall said what they like about barbecue. I like pulled pork, especially at Lil Neals BBQ in New Smyrna Beach it is really amazing. I like sweet sauce. Ive loved barbecue all my life and with french fries too. I like both the smell and the taste! Colin W. 12 yeard old Barbecue pulled pork is my favorite with coleslaw either at home or going out. I like sweet sauce and the pork by itself, without the bun. We like Sonnys BBQ. I like the taste better than the smell. Natalie T. 8 years old I like chicken on the grill and a barbecue chicken sandwich. I like corn-on-the-cob on the grill too. I like the taste better than the smell, and a mild barbecue sauce. Megan D. 8 years old I like pulled pork on the bun, with mashed potatoes for a side dish. The smell of barbecue is my favorite. Ive always liked Bonfires barbecue. Sarah G. 14 years old I like barbecue ribs with sweet sauce either having it at home or going out is good. I like the taste best and the smell too. Corn-on-the-cob is a great side with barbecue.

TALK T O SANDI > EMPLOYMENT Ask Sandi The very idea of a baby brings some apprehension to announces the blessed news. Months later when the pinkor blueblanketed bundle is pre sented to him, out of nowhere a newfound fatherly strength emerges and overcomes his buckling knees. Dad reects on teen years later another young man feels weak in the knees as he rings her doorbell knowing that a very skeptical father waits on the other side. Little does he know that this intimidating father is struggling to keep his composure as a gorgeous young woman descends the stairs in a pastel pink dress, glow. During the very worst of clings to the memory of her giggles as they read Green Eggs and Ham together and the force of her sobs after Where, oh where did that little girl go? In her own quiet moments she is equally bewildered wondering what has become of her kind and understanding and trust her, and why is he so totally unreasonable about every new boyfriend? A fathers hand The relationship of father and daughter can be no more bittersweet than on her wed ding day when he walks his daughter down the aisle and gives her hand in marriage. In a few years a father becomes a grandfather with a chance to enjoy the sweetness of child hood with a little less stress. It is in these years that new par ents sometimes discover their own fathers in a different light. During the most ordinary day, ates the lessons their dads tried to impart. This Fathers Day, give your dad the best gift of all: quality time and the best of yourself. Leave the arguments and stub bornness in the past and give him a few hours of the little girl or bud that you once were. Sit by his side, hold his hand again and let him truly feel your love and appreciation. Bob, well miss you condolences to Joyce Cote and family for the passing of our friend Bob Cote. Bob may have been from Maine, but he was a true son of the Geneva com munity for many years. Think ing about Bob always made me smile because he always had a grin, always had a story to tell and always seemed to be in the right place at the right time. Bob came to the rescue of countless folks in Geneva, and in the surrounding rural areas, helping to mow or clear land, to pull somebodys equip ment out of a ditch or from the when roads were blocked, Bob bent some rules helping folks navigate through the woods to access their properties and be longings. Bob always seemed young at heart and in spirit, and I just know the angels above are gathered around him now, listening to many of his famous tales.

Giving time to dad Stetsons Corner By Karen McEnany-Phillips Rejection is never easy. We dont like to hear the word no, and often take it very personally. Sometimes we even beat our selves up or question and analyze the situ ation until we drive ourselves crazy. I have a friend who applied for a posi tion and it looked like he was going to get it. They spent hours with him and then he heard nothing. Eventually they told him they had chosen an internal candidate for the position and he could apply for the po sition they were vacating. Honestly, I think they should have just brought him back in and not made him start the process over, but so goes human resources. Many times you may end up being the number two or three candidate for a job and you dont have any idea how the team wrestled back and forth to make the deci sion. I will be facing that decision soon with some candidates we have for a position. The top two candidates that I am meeting them both, but we have to choose one. One of the things you can try to do if you are not chosen is stay in touch with the recruiters or even the hiring manager. Send them a letter if you dont receive the offer, letting them know you are glad they found a candidate. Also ask them to keep you in the loop for future positions. You can also reach out to them on LinkedIn. Just dont become a stalker or ask a ton of questions about why they didnt hire you. Chances are they wont tell you and then they will become annoyed and not want to stay con nected with you. It is possible for you to add them to your network if you are professional and strate gic. This could open doors for you in the future at their company or maybe one they network with. My daughter received an internship when one company could not hire her for one area, but they referred her to another company that was hiring and endorsed her for the position. Rejection is not always the end. Do what you can to stay positive and continue building the relationships. Be a pro at rejection King Features Weekly ServiceJune 9, 2014 EDITORIAL CARTOONS
