C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY email@example.comSEBRING Of course,the 1940s were a decade dominated by World War II. Because Sebring was home to Hendricks Field,an Army Air Corps combat crew training school,it was affected much more broadly and deeply than most other communities especially because in 1940 it was agricultural and rural with a county population of under 10,000. By May 6,1943 the population had doubled going from just over 9,000 civilians in 1940,to more than 14,000 civilians and 7,000 military personnel including those assigned to the Avon Park Bombing Range. While the war grew more intense in Europe,North Africa and Asia,in 1940 Sebring was still a sleepy town. The Sebring American reported on local galas,high school marching band concerts and the doings of the city council. While the newspaper followed the war, its violence was muted and seemed far away.

A Highlands County native,he is now retired. For years Hutchinson has kept an eye on the countys school district; all three of his children were educated here. He became more and more concerned about high drop-out rates,low Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test student scores and the number of Cand D school grades. He began by volunteering. Hutchinson said he has volunteered more than 1,000 hours,with more than 50 hours in 15 of the 17 public schools. He also substitute taught,he said,working five years,teaching in every school in the district. He added that he has attended state and national level conferences,visited Tallahassee and spoken to legislators. He feels he has done his homework,and has a good grasp of the major issues as well as how the system works.

On the one hand,the council could vote to keep the local police force. On the other,it could approve a four-year cont ract with the Highlands County Sheriffs Office.

The countys rate will positively not be higher than in 2011-2012,when it was $7.10 per $1,000 of property value,said Jack Richie, chairman of the county board of commissioners. That is only the maximum it could be,he said. It still could go lower. In Avon Park,city manager Julian Deleon had even better news. He told the city council,Based on our annexation program,our utility growth,and our restructured city operations, I will be ... proposing the lowest municipal millage rate for all of Highlands County.

C M Y K Lance Cpl. Jeffrey Cole received the Silver Star for his gallant response to an enemy ambush in Marjah,A fghanistan. Yet even while describing the battles harrowing events,the 22-yearold Georgia native insisted that his fellow Marines arem ore deserving of recognition. I didnt do anything comparative to what they did,L ance Cpl. Cole told The Unknown Soldiers. I was shot,but I was not wounded, which allowed me to do what I did,and then in thep rocess of me doing that,I got wounded. While genuine humility is common amongst the roughly 1 percent of Americansw ho volunteer for military service,Coles modesty, even after recently receiving the nations third-highest military honor,is nevertheless striking. They deserve the award and not me,he said. WhatI saw that day was the most impressive thing Ive ever seen in my life. Cole,eight fellow Marines,and a Navy Hospital Corpsman were on an Aug. 17,2010,reconnaissance mission in southern Afghanistans searing heat when the Taliban staged a sneak attack. It just erupted,Cole said. It came out of nowhere. Cole was hit by rapid fire at virtually the same moment as five fellow Marines. The difference was that Coles body armor stopped the enemy rounds while the other men were bleeding. I got back up after being shot and I was mad,obviously,because I was shot and everyone else was shot,the Marine said. I just started shooting in the tree line 100 yards away at all the Taliban that were there. Over the next 30 minutes, the Marines,including Cole and all five others whod been hit,took the fight to the enemy using only a ditch as cover.As a machine gunner lay bleeding,Cole volunteered to fill his role and confront the enemy head on. I was like hey,youre wounded and Im not,Cole said. So Im gonna take the (machinell give you my rifle. Cole unleashed a hail of bullets as the terrorists,who w ere moving closer to the ditch,scrambled for cover. Standing up and exposing himself to the enemy,the Marine continued firing untilh e was struck by three more bullets. And this time,body armor couldnt protect him. I had two go through my arm,Cole said. It threwm e back into the ditch and they put a tourniquet on me. As the sweaty Marine lay in the ditch with blood spraying from his left arm, which was almost completely numb after one of the bullets severed a nerve,Cole knew his patrol had to move to a safer position,and fast. At that point I was the sixth wounded Marine out of only ten,he said. So it was like,all right,we gotta get out of here now. After making it into a nearby compound,the Marines frantically fixed a broken radio to call in air support while securing a perimeter to prevent further attacks. Finally,with the Taliban approximately 30 yards away,U.S. helicopters arrived to evacuate the outnumbered,decimated patrol. All six wounded Marines survived. Almost two years after bravely grabbing a machine gun and temporarily halting the enemy advance,Cole has endured seven surgeries and countless hours of physical therapy,leaving him with about 40 percent usage of his left arm. Instead of taking any credit for his heroic actions,though,the Marine is focused on regaining his strength. I can curl a 15-pound weight now, whereas...almost two years ago I couldnt even lift my arm...I couldnt even lift a finger on my arm,literally, Cole said. Its taken me a long time and a lot of hard work,but Im doing a lot better now. With a Silver Star medal to his name,Cole is recovering at North Carolinas Camp Lejeune while occasionally visiting his family in Woodstock,Ga. He hastd ecided how long hell stay in the military,although hes committed to always helping other wounded warriors,no matter where his career pathu ltimately leads. While reluctant to e mbrace the term hero, warriors like Lance Cpl.J effrey Cole and his fellow troops deserve adulation. During uncertain times,they are shining stars that every American can be proud of.

Only the most jaded feel no emotion as the torch is lit and theh undreds of athletes march into the stadium,their nationa l flags held proudly. Most of us get goose bumps and choke up. A s wonderful and exciting as the World Series and the S uper Bowl are,there is something larger about the Olympics. Mostly it has to do with hope. Real hope,as people ofd iffering beliefs and backgrounds gather the common c ause of competing. In rivalry with respect,we see a g limpse of what the world could be like. We learn about people we n ever knew existed and watch games we knew nothing a bout. Who would have guessed,for example,that water polo could grab ouri nterest and that we would get caught up in a match? C ertainly the Olympics have changed over the years. Some of us can remember when athletes were amateurs who practiced after work ando n the weekends. At the first modern Olympics,in Athens i n 1896,athletes competed in track and field,cycling,fencing,gymnastics and swimming. I n London,athletes are competing in those events, but also 21 more. Sports as varied as archery and badmiton; field hockey and hand-b all; volleyball and wrestling not to mention regular tennis,table tennis,taekwando,j udo,shooting,golf,boxing, canoeing,basketball,aquatics,sailing,rowing,waterp olo and weightlifting. Then there are the equestrian e vents,the modern triathlon, the modern pentathalon and diving. B ack in about 776 B.C. the Olympics took place in a sing le day.The sports were running,the long jump,the shot put,the discus,the javelin, boxing,horse back riding, the pentathalon running,j umping,the discus throw, wrestling and boxing and w hat was considered the toughest sport of all: Pankration,a primitive martial art. W inners in those days were awarded sacred olive wreaths. In 393 A.D. the Roman emperor Theodosius I,aC hristian,banished the games for what he saw as pagan influences. I t took 1,503 years for the Olympics to be brought back to life in 1896. Y es,recently the games have become more commerc ial and expensive. Yes,part of the mythology has disappeared into the mists of time,a nd with it some of the romance. B ut at its innermost core, the Olympics hasnt changed. It is still about individuals setting out to accomplish something they neverd id before and living up to the Olympic motto:aster, H igher,Stronger. Olympic competitions show us world as it could be There is no denying the Olympics are special. Only the most jaded feel no emotion as the torch is lit and the hundreds of athletes march into the stadium,their national flags held proudly. A lot of us get goose bumps and choke up. A well regulated militia being n ecessary to the security of a free state,the right of the people to keep and bear armss hall not be infringed. The Second Amendment Whether it is college campuses, Amish communi-t ies,or other gunfree zones,bloodthirsty m aniacal men will find a way to quench their cravings. Therefore,gun control laws do not work because they are based ont he erroneous assumption that criminals will obey the law.They dont and wont; hence leaving law-abiding citizens defenseless in thef ace of danger,as so happened that tragic July evening at the Aurora, Colorado movie theater where guns were not permitted,and a man who called himself The Joker went on a shooting rampage. Much to the dismay of gun law activists who claim the Second Amendment pertains solely to militia (militaryand who predictably crawl out from underneath their rocks after every mass shooting,the 2008 Supreme Court Case, District of Columbia v. Heller,ruled the Second Amendment indeed secures an individuals right to possess firearms,regardless of military service. Nonetheless,these activists continue their march ever forward,in an endeavor to infringe upon that which shall not be infringed. It is really about perspective. Every life is precious. Each of the 12 lives snuffed out in that Colorado movie theatre is 12 lives too many representing untold numbers of family members whose lives are forever changed. No amount of gun control will bring them back nor will it stop the next psychopath from taking his rage out on society. Zip. Zero. Zilch. If every last gun was shipped across our borders fast and furiously,murderers would still find a way to kill. This conversation is not about gun control; its about people control. G otham City,er, Chicago,has one o f the strictest gun laws in the countryso severe,the laws were deemed as unconstitutionala while back. According to the Chicago SunTimes,over Memorial Day weekend 12 people were killed byg unfire and 45 were shot and wounded. In t he time it takes to play a major league soccer match (90 minutes13 people were shot. By mid-June, murder was up 35 percentf rom last year with 228 people killed. Statistically speaking,our troops are safer in Kabul,Afghanistan than in Chicago. Where wast hat story in the national news? Less might be more when it comes to gun regulation. According to the Washington Times,violent crime peaked 25 years ago when just a handful of stateshad conceal-carry laws. To no coincidence, gun sales have increased over the past four years, and currently 41 states have differing versions of guncarrying laws,yet violent crime has decreased according to the FBI in June. According to Pajamas Media,States with the highest gun ownership have the lowest firearms homicide ratesand States with the lowest firearms ownership average the highest firearm and non-firearm homicide rates. Gun control activists have it all wrong because they make incredibly naive assumptions about human nature. Given the chance others were packing heat in theater number 9 at the Century 16 in Aurora, Colorado; the story may have ended much differently for the cold-blooded killer.

EDITORIALPAGEPOLICY Real problems of APPD come into playE ditor: To date,the proposal to transfer law enforcement for the city of Avon Park from the police department (APPD the sheriffs office has been cast purely i n economic terms. However,I favor the proposal because it deals with the real problem with the APPD in the most cost effective manner:changing the perception of the culture within the police department. While I personally have not been subject to any misconduct by any APPD officer,I have certainly heard from those who feel they have been. First,there is widespread disenchantment among the African American community on the south side of Avon Park with the police department. Second,in the last five years there have been more newspaper reported instances of APPD officer misconduct both on duty and off duty,than all of the other law enforcement agencies in the county combined. That cast a shadow over the reputation of APPD. I have heard from a number of people that APPD has been a problem for years. That perception is out there. Third,the turnover in having four police chiefs in the last five years has more impact than space will permit. But I will cite one particularly disturbing incident. One APPD chief personally investigated his perceived political opponent. However, when it came time for that chief to be investigated he asked for an independent investigation rather than one from an agency run by his perceived political opponent. That is a double standard. Many APPD officers served under that individual for years. There are legitimate concerns that type of mindset is institutionalized within APPD. If the Avon Park City Council does not have the political courage to turn law enforcement over to the sheriffs office,then there must be a plan to instill public confidence in APPD. That plan must include input from the city council,the city manager,the PBA union,most importantly community leaders and business leaders. We have a genuine problem in merely keeping APPD the way it is. It must be changed one way or the other. Joe Wright Avon Park Avon Park needs time to healEditor: As a senior citizen,I value my home here in Avon Park. Its charm as a city goes back to 1925. (Our churches give us Christian values). Times have changed in the past 10 years. A mother of six sons thanked me for giving of my time to help one of her sons (his teacher also thanked me, said the 13-year-old has better grades). And he earned money for his clothes. Hes now in school to become a chef. Kindness,love and respect are great lessons in life. Then fear rocked my world out of a sound sleep a little after 4 a.m. and many gun shots were sounding on the cars by my home. I called the police department. Many shots went into the home next door,plus by my home. Thanks police department,you have been there for us (drugs,over 30 they tell me). When scammers were working here in Avon Park,I called the police department. (Former) police officer Michael Rowan took my call. He said to me, s see if we can do something about this.They did a check. The high priced scammers didnt get a permit to sell in the city of Avon Park. Thank you Michael Rowan; you cared about safety for all in Avon Park. You are a professional,efficient and well qualified for the job that was taken away from you. Im sorry that from day one Julian Deleon,the city manager who is from Lake Placid,didnt act in a responsible manner; instead he (Mr. Deleon) has been disrespectful with an unhealthy attitude to our Avon Park Police Department and many others. At a city council meeting,Mr. Deleon declined to answer a question. My question is Why didnt council request Mr. Deleons reply?(I question what was he like in school?). We,in Avon Park,need to heal. Also, Mr. Deleon should realize hate can become a sickness. His very unhealthy attitude speaks to us; that Mr. Deleon isnt ready to be a responsible city manager of Avon Park. Thanks for your time. Norma Jean Viney Avon ParkTake time to helpEditor: Thank you will never be enough for the guardian angel/off-duty paramedic, Nancy,who heard my sons plea for help on Sebring Parkway and stopped to help. Because of her,he is expected to have a full recovery from a lifethreatening condition. Thank you also to Highlands County EMS (James and ElizabethAeromed and the fabulous doctors and nurses at Tampa General Hospital. For 15-20 minutes,my son called to passersby for help and no one stopped until Nancy came along. Had it been much longer,his condition may have been irreversible or he may have died. Please,if you see someone that appears to need help and you are afraid to stop, at least call 911 and report it. You may save someones life. Our family and friends will be forever grateful to you that helped save our loved one. May God bless you. Jan Kreulen Sebring

There,thats better,she stated and promptly left the room. I t was 6 a.m. Not my usual time to commit murder I usually waitu ntil 10:30 but I was willing to make an exception. F or those who dont know, writers are a lot like vampires (Go,Team Edward!).W e like it dark. Preferably cool. Maybe some mood m usic. Not anything by Marvin Gaye. That engages the other writer. The epic, romantic and eight-secondsof-fun writer! When I gett he feelingOh yeah. Hmm. W ell,anywise,I knew right then that I was going to drag myself out of the bed,d rag myself in to my new wheelchair like a zombie and c hase her down and kill her. Some of the medication I have states right on the bott le that it makes your eyes sensitive to sunlight. Maybe the junior college that gave her the nursing papers didnt make you read medicationl abels. Florida is blessed with sunlight. People actually move here for it. It is not like the sunshine you get inn orthern states,all dim and weak. Florida sunshine is l ike movie nuclear reactor light. So intense you flincha way from it. Scotty,I need more sunlight. Sorry Captain,but Im giving her all shes got. T hat kind of light. About 15 minutes later,I had struggled to a sitting position at the side of the bed. W hew. A stroke slows you down. In the junior college nurse fluttered,and stated Now, you know youre supposed to call for help if you are going to sit up. She tsked. She actually tsked. Im just going to lay the c all button so you can reach it easier,she said,then took off again before I couldl unge. She was quick. The stroke left my right s ide paralyzed,so it was tough to even sit up. P aralyzed on one side makes the insurance companies really nervous. Completelyp aralyzed is OK. Those folks pretty much stay in one p lace where you leave them. Partially paralyzed people tend to flail about then fall down. Falling down is frowned upon in hospitals orr ehab facilities. Falling down makes one b unch of lawyers happy and the opposing bunch lawyers sad. I dont really understandw hy. Both sides make money. A nyways,I needed a new plan. Maybe I could call ACME. Order a falling anvil o r a rocket. The next 15 minutes was consumed with getting situated,getting my wheelchair close enough to fall into andm oving from the side of the bed to a standing position. Man,I needed some juice. Into the chair. Crap. Another do-gooder p ulled the foot rests off the chair to make it easier to g et around. Did I mention Ive had a f ricking stroke? I finally found the foot rests,tucked neatly under the center of the large,split dresser I share with myr oommate. Ever tried to wheel a chair under a table? People pay good money to see that at the movies. I put the rests on,loaded m y bum leg up on the right rest and pulled my bum arm up for 900th time. Ready, set,go,Team Stroke! I rolled to the window and closed the blinds. Did I mention that window treatments are not made for people in a wheelchair? I rolled back to the bed and spent the next 20 minu tes or so getting back in bed and getting comfortabl e. It would have gone faster if I had locked both wheels on the chair the first time. The extra time was spent trying to miss the floor as the chair spun wildly out of control. Heh,almost made some lawyers sad. N ote to self,lock both w heels. Check. Finally,I was back in be d and ready to drift back into sweet slumber. Anticipating breakfast. Maybe coffee. Exhausted and sweaty,bu t I was finally drifting back. D rifting. Hmm. That was a new feeling. When I recogn ized it was just the call bu t t on,not an alien probe,that w as strategically spaced u nder me. Yeah,got to watch those alien probes. The large and intrusive call/probe apparatus was too far to get without rolling o ver but too far not to have t o pull it out. Finally,I flailed around e nough to grab the cord and yank,but I messed up the sheets. Screw it. I coulds leep on bunched sheets. Sleep was running just outside my 3-foot zone ofs troke-induced influence when the door opened and nurse I-know-whats-goodfor-you flounced into view, reminding me to kill her. Maybe strangulation with call button/probe cord. ell,I see we laid back down. See,you messed up your sheets. Let me fix those,she said before tryin g to wrap me in a cocoon of white cotton. Now,thats better,she chirped. Anything else?she asked as she engaged back into nurse warp speed. Before I could answer no she was already moving. Oh,I must have forgot. Let me just open those blinds for you. Arrggggg. As she walked out,off to do more good for people no doubt,I heard my roommat e, in a clear croak from his own cocoon bark,I wish someone would strangle her. Heh. Note to self:Call ACME.

School orientations scheduled Aug. 13-16 e rstracks in the sand. I will be a physical presence in the schools,he said. I will listen to teacher feedback. One of his concerns is s tudent attendance. wenty-two of Lake Placid High School students missed 21 days of school, he said,.3 percent at Sebring Middle School and 13.8 percent at the Kindergarten Learning Center. Hutchinson recognizes raising attendance will be a long,hard fight,but he promises,I will visit every parent of a high school student who is truant. I hope to build relationships with parents,act as a liaison,find a way to talk to parents that is non-coercive. I will go to parentshomes (and say) I want your child to get a first-class education. What are you going to do? H utchinson said he is willing to take parents to court to explain to the judge why youre not getting your kid to school. T he other major problem he sees are the students who come to school but disrupt classes all day. Wve got to do something with kids who are discipline problems,the 100 to 200 who shouldnt be there, Hutchinson said. Take out the troublemakers,have zero tolerance for hoodlums. He thinks part of the problem is the lack of an alternative school. The Youth Academy is not for kids who want to harm you, he said. While he feels the Kindergarten Learning Center is doing an excellent job,he says with school populations dropping, k indergarten classes could be returned to individual schools,and the KLC site turned into the needed alternative school. We needt o find a way to do it. He also wants to bring home-schooled children back into the classroom. If I can convince 25 kids to come back,thats $125,005 to the schools. He believes in more art in the schools,and feels the decision to cut back to only eight media specialists hurts students. Each (is responsible) for four schools now,he said. He also wants to see higher expectations from schools. Why set the bar so low,he said,Why a C? Why not a Bor an A. We have to change the attitude that Avon Park High School cant do better than that.

C M Y K frost and an alarming drop in t he fish population. That fishing problem was considered so urgent,in fact, that a private group of citi-z ens got together creating t he Fish & Game Association and built a fish hatchery for a lake restocking project. W ell before the attack on Pearl Harbor,the War Department began to expand the armed forces. Seeing this,a group of city leaders and businessmen a nticipated American entry into the war. Early on,they traveled to Washington D.C. to lobby for the city and the county to b e sure that when new milit ary installations were created as there were sure to be such installations in the near future one would be b uilt in Sebring. The Army Air Corps did c hoose a site seven miles of the city on which to build a t raining base. Originally planned as a basic flying school,it opened for combat crew training instead. Them en were taught to be a t eam on B-17s,otherwise known as Flying Fortresses. T he Sebring Historical Society has a copy of A Brief History of Hendricks Fieldin its collection. It was written in 1942 by an unknown author. He described what the area looked like before the first bulldozer lowered a blade. I t was a huge prairie tract ... sandy,palmetto-covered, m arshy,almost surrounded by lakes and a creek ... filled with herons,cranes,quails, snipe,and other game birds; and deer,rabbits ... ratt lesnakes and moccasins. On June 13,1941 work b egan on the training school. The first B-17 landed at 2355 (11:55 p.m. 29,1942. Those seven months were a rush of contract bidding and activity. I n an anonymous piece at the Sebring Historical Society written in 1979,the author described what it was like as power lines,access r oads,runways and permanent structures were built. W ages were excellent,he said. Journeymen made $1 an hour; apprentices made 50 cents. The influx of people was great and so quick that there was a severe housing crisis. The author said that beds and stoves were put into the m ost unbelievable locations, even in such out-buildings as those which had been usedf or housing chicken flocks. The situation was so out o f control that an Area Rental Office was created to oversee landlords and tenets, a nd the federal government instituted rent control to stop price gouging. World War II had arrived. Sebring residents soon b ecame used to the sight of the large bombers as they flew overhead,although there were a few incidents like when a Flying F ortress buzzed the whole length of Ridgewood Drive. M ostly people looked at the air field,its men and itsp lanes with pride. In A Brief History of Hendricks Field,the author is almost poetic:B-17s are huge planes of gracefull ines,things of beauty,yet probably the most destructive aircraft that has ever been visited upon our enemies. H endricks Field was named for 1st Lt. Laird Woodruff Hendricks,a Florida native from Ocala, who died in 1941 during an airplane crash while serving on temporary duty in England as a flight instructor. At home,city residents practiced black-out procedures. Rationing was in a ffect. By the end of the war,residents felt no regret whenH endricks Field was de-activated Dec. 31,1945,and m ost of the servicemen and their families left town. What the city should do w ith the field became a major controversy. On one side there was a group led by the Chamber of Commerce and the cityc ouncil,which thought acquiring the field a farsighted,sound business decision providing an airport and industrial site. A nother group,however, made of residents and other b usiness people,considered the field a white elephant.T hey worried that the city would become responsible for the estimated $50,000 it would cost in maintenance every year. W hen the government gave the city a Right of Entry document,and substantial discounts on government properties not directlyc onnected to aviation,the city council and chamber moved to take advantage. The President of the Council,Floyd Schumacher, and Sebring Mayor M. F. McGee,were instrumental in the deal. To reassure the doubters, the agreement included the stipulation that no city money could be involved. T he airport must be self-sustaining. As we know,Hendricks F ield became the Sebring Municipal Airport,and then g rew beyond that. Some of its runway was used for car endurance races t hat have grown into the world class 12 Hours of Sebring. The transition from military to civilian,however,w as not with challenges. Initially,swarms of scavengers went through the unprotected buildings,taking everything that wasnt nailedd own and much that was. Security had to be brought i n. But peace settled quickly b ack into Sebring. There was an excitement and sense of the future. By 1947 dozens of committees had formed,eachl obbying for a particular new road,or extended utility lines or dial telephones and private lines. The state government was t hinking in terms of creating east-west and north-south transportation corridors, while the federal government was thinking about connecting the states. Halfway through the century,it seemed as if nothing was impossible. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, August 3, 2012Page 5A PUBLIX-National Newspaper Plac; 3.639"; 16"; Black p lus three; process, 92469 publix liquors; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 2 2 0 0 3 3 3 3 DAILY COMMERCIAL; 3.639"; 1"; Black; cornerstone hospice; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 2 2 0 0 8 8 4 4 MARTIAL ARTS (pp before aug 6; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 2 2 0 0 8 8 5 5 Follow the News-Sun online on www.twitter.com/thenewssun Junior ROTC instructors and their spouses.

In a gubernatorial year,we will run around 50 percent. When y ou come to a presidential election we will have right around 70 percent. The early voting period w ill allow voters to avoid the lines that may form at the polls on the regular voting d ay,especially in the larger precincts like 4,5,13,15, 16,17,19 and 25. A nd voters dont have to vote in their precincts duringe arly voting,Campbell said. They can stop by any of the three locations. If you live in Avon Park and are down in Lake Placidd oing something and want to vote,you can stop in and vote,Campbell said. The majority of the prim ary action will be on the Republican side of the ticket, which should draw more of that partys voters to the polls than Democrats ort hose with no party affiliation. All three ballots will include the Circuit Judge elections for 10th Circuit inG roup 7 (Larry Helms,Bill Sites and Christine Trakas Thornhill) and in Group 27 (Catherine L. Combee and Mark Kaylor),as well as the School Board District 3 seat( MaryAnn Lewis and Jan Shoop). T he Democrat ballot will include the U.S. Senate primary (Glenn A. Burkett andB ill Nelson). The Republican ballot will a lso have primaries for the U.S. Senate (George LeMieux,Deon Long, Connie Mack,MikeM cCallister,Marielena Stuart and DaveWeldon),the District 17 U.S. House of Representatives (Joe Arnold and Tom Rooney),District5 5 State House (Randy Johnson,Cary Pigman),the Superintendent of Schools (Wally Cox,Pep Hutchinson and Roberta Peck),theS upervisor of Elections (Susie Bishop,David Flowers and Penny Ogg), District 1 County Commissioner (Will Bennett and Jim Brooks) and theD istrict 3 County Commissioner (Jeri Canale, N adine Elliott-Tedstone and Ron Handley).

While they acknowledge keeping a local force is more expensive,they sayt he city is doing so well financially that the city manager was able to set $2 mill ion aside to pay for a local force in 2012-2013,and still lower the citys millage rate,making it now the lowest m unicipal rate in the county. Supporters of the Sheriffs Office, however,point that the contract with the Sheriff will save the city more than $2.45 million over its life,ranging froma $519,695 savings the first year of the contract to $682,692 in the final year, assuming that the APPD would have to hire a another full-time officer in order to become accredited. The HCSO isa lready accredited. A complete breakdown of the numb ers is available on the citys website at www.avonpark.cc/. P roponents of bringing in the SO say the city stands to gain extra benefit by becoming the hub of a county Northern District,meaning the police department building would become the districts headquarters. A captain,lieutenant ands everal sergeants would provide overs ight. Detectives and a variety of supp ort personnel would also be assigned, all at the countys expense. These d eputies and specialists would be in addition to the 16 street patrol deputies a nd one civilian assigned to the city proper per the contract. Supporters say city deputies will have access to many more resources and that the SO is already an accredited agency. C ity Manager Julian Deleon will recommend that the council choose the H CSO contract. While there has been acrimony during the debate,the city manager and unionn egotiators both praise each other for the civilized,productive conversation t hat led to a tentative PBA contract. In that contract police officers agreed to bypass a raise; convert their retire-m ent plan for all new hires and officers with fewer than five years of service to a d edicated contribution plan from a dedicated benefit plan; and increase the number of steps in the wage scale from eight to 15. Officers vested in the dedicated benefit program agreed to con-t ribute another 3 percent of their payroll towards administrative costs. Following the special meeting a budget workshop will be held. Continued from page 1A APPD vote to be cast on Saturday nally recommended a 33 percent drop to $3.95,but thenf ound other savings. He said,This (the lower rate) has nothing to do with APPD funding levels. As a matter of fact,the APPD funding level continues at around $2 million annually. Even at this lower rate,we a re still leaving $194,482 in the citys contingency funds, plus your city reserves at an a ll-time high of approximately $1.6 million for emergencies. O ne unknown,Deleon a dded,is the amount of recrea tion funding the county will be passing back to the city.

C M Y K I recently visited my dermatologist for a routine check-up. Actually, I was a bit o verdue; given my last visit was eight years ago. A t that time, I had a number of spots burned o ff mostly on my shoulders and arms. B iopsies were sent in on a couple, and one on my sternum that came back as Squamous cell carcinoma. It was removed and after I was stitched up, I promised to be more careful of my exposure to the sun. This wasnt my first experience with skin cancer, back when I was in my 20s or 30s, I had a similar scare, only then it was a mole in the middle of my back that turned out to be a melanoma. The doctor at that time wasted no time removinga six-inch swath from my back and reminded me how lucky I was that they found it when they did. As I mentioned, it had been eight years since my last visit to the dermatologist, so I expected that there would be a few spots theyd have to take care. I was a bit surprised when it turned out to be 19. Four were sent in for biopsies and one came back as a Basal cell carcinoma and the other as a Squamous cell carcinoma. Both were treated. Afterwards, I did a little research on the internet, and thought Id include the information I found: Skin cancer is the most common form of human cancer. It is estimated that over 1 million new cases occur annually. The annual rates of all forms of skin cancer are increasing each year, representing a growing public concern. It has also been estimated that nearly half of all Americans who live to age 65 will develop skin cancer at least once. The most common warning sign of skin cancer is a change in the appearance of the skin, such as a new growth or a sore that will not heal. The term skin cancer refers to three diffe rent conditions. From the least to the most dangerous, they are: basal cell carcinoma (or basal cell carcinoma epithelioma), squamous cell carcinoma (the first stage of which is called actinic keratosis), melanoma. The two most common forms of skin cancer are basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. Together, these two are also referred to as nonmelanoma skin cancer. Melanoma is generally the most serious form of skin cancer because it tends to spread (metastasize the body quickly. Skin cancer is also known as skin neoplasia. The third and most dangerous form of skin cancer is a Melanoma. Melanocytes are cells that produce the dark pigment, melanin, which is responsible for the color of skin. They predominantly occur in skin, but are also found in other parts of the body, including the bowel and the eye (see uveal melanoma Melanoma can originate in any part of the body that contains melanocytes. Melanoma is less common than other skin cancers. However, it is much more dangerous if it is not found early. It causes the majority (75-percent) of deaths related to skin cancer. When I mentioned to one of my fishing buddies, Burt Watkins of Avon Park, I was surprised to learn that he too had had a melanoma years ago and as a precaution, they removed a number of his lymph nodes. By DAN HOEHNE firstname.lastname@example.orgIts the fourth trip in as many years, to three different levels of Dixie World Series, at various locales, for this core group of Sebring AllStars. Having placed third in the late-summer classic as AAA 10-year olds, the team then went on to back-to-back World Series champions at the Ozone level. Now on the Junior Boys level for age 13, the squad just barely got out of the Florida State tournament which their head coach is actually grateful for. That was the most pressure wed had at state, Dean Frazier said. The talent level was way up this year with Dixie having opened up the borders, and we had to come from behind in three of our games. Even before we started playing, all these other are teams were winning their state tournaments, so that was just adding to the pressure for us to win as well. But the squad did live up to expectations, despite some close calls, and Frazier sees the benefit of that. It was good for us, it woke us up and got us refocused, he said. Were now going into it really battle tested. Where theyre going in Christiansburg, Vir., where some familiar faces will be seen. Looking through it, there are five teams weve seen before, with the team from Chester County, Tenn., returning eight players. They had a set of triplets who each hit homers, all pitch and play various positions. But at all these tournaments, there are going to be two or three teams that are just as good as you. And then it will just be a matter of who keeps their composure the best and which pitcher has a big game. As two-time defending champs, Team Sebring will assuredly have a target on itsback, which can add some pressure. But as Frazier sees it, it adds pressure to the other teamsas well. They know theyll have to play their best to beat us, which can make it harder for them, he said. Then if they make an error, or if our guys come out hitting hard, it can really take a lot out of them. And they know weve got the hitters. Every player in our order can hit it out over a 300-foot fence. Trey Frazier, Seth Cannady, Jimmy Peck, Josh Crouch, Daniel Simons, Kyle Helms, David DeGenaro, Jay Bible and Brendan Doty make up the potent line-up, with Simons and Crouch serving as the pitching aces. I see them as Ace-Aand Ace-B, coach Frazier said. Theyve both pitched in big games and can get the job done. Its really just a matter of whos been throwing well. Not to mention, there are six other guys that can pitch. With yet another trip to the World Series upon them, it might seem like business as usual for Fraziers bunch, but the level of competition they just faced has lit a spark. Theyre really hungry now and very focused,he said. It also started getting a By DAN HOEHNE email@example.comIt came to an end Tuesday night, the Highlands United attempt at a Dixie Majors World Series championship, as a late charge came up just short in a 6-5 loss to Paris,T exas. With a Sunday loss already on their record, Heartland Baseball faced elimination every ensuing time out. B ut they came back firing o n all cylinders Monday, taking two lopsided wins, but fell into a hole early Tuesday, as Texas plated four firstinning runs. Chase Harvey knocked a two-run homer out of the park, Colby Rose singled home a run and LoganW arren hit a sacrifice fly for another to stake Texas to the early lead. Evan Lewis singled with one out in the bottom of the first, stole second and reached third on a Drew Reeves grounder, but was lefts tranded. It stayed 4-0 into the top of the third, when Harvey singled home a run to edge it to 5-0 and another score in the fourth made it a 6-0 deficit for Team Florida. The Heartland offense, so productive with back-to-back 10-run games on Monday, couldnt get anything going, and as the innings continued without a score, time began to dwindle away. But a spark of life came in the sixth when Lewis, Reeves and Jesse Baker loaded the bases and a Brandon Rhea fielders choice brought Lewis in. Reeves would soon score on an error and Lane Crosson hit a sacrifice fly to score Rhea and cut the lead in half at 6-3. Nate Greene, on in long relief since the third, held Texas down in their final at bat, giving the Highlands County squad one last chance.

By DAN HOEHNE d firstname.lastname@example.orgThey had their first setb ack, Team Florida did, Tuesday night in the Dixie Ozone World Series in Cleveland, Miss. After eking out an opening-game win by a 2-1 score, the Sebring All-Stars went on a rampage in stomping past their next two foes, by 17-5 and 15-2 scores. B ut another squad was similarly running roughshod over itsopponents, Team North Carolina from Hope Mills. They had trounced their way to 13-1, 15-0 and 11-0 wins headed into the Tuesday n ight showdown between the irresistible force and the immovable object. But when push came to shove, North Carolina did most of it in a 12-1 win, giving Team Florida itsfirst loss of the tournament. Still alive, however, the team got back in winning fashion Wednesday with a 5-1 win over Kosciusko, Miss. T he Sebring sluggers came out swinging in the semifinal, with Everett Hurst going yard for a two-run homer in the first, soon followed by a solo shot by Dayvon Terry for a quick 3-0 lead. Trevor Thomas toed the rubber for the Florida squad and worked through three scoreless innings, before surrendering a solo home run in the fourth to make it a 3-1 game.

He would then score on another ground out to make it 6-4 with one out remaining. Lewis brought the team a bit closer, belting a lined rive home run over the left field fence. But that would be the last stand as Texas starter Jeff King finished his completegame effort on a fly out to deep center. Still, it was a fantastic effort throughout by the Heartland squad, continuing to battle back throughout the tournament and enjoying every moment until the final out was made. This was my first time being in a World Series and i t was a blast with this g roup of guys, Abeln said. The competition was good, but if we had played our best ball, errorless ball, w e were the best team t here. It didnt fall our way, but thats the great thing about baseball. It was a great atmosphere and who knew that us rival players would come together and do this. We are looking forward to next year and making another run at it. Jesse Baker had a similar view on the event. It was a great experience with a lot of lessons learned, he said. We fought hard and never gave up until the last out was m ade. It will be something that every person here will l ook back on one day and cherish. Continued from 1B Courtesy photo J esse Baker shows off the hardware brought home by reaching the Dixie Majors World Series Final Four. Majors run comes to an end Lewis then added another for the 5-1 edge the team would hold at games end. Justin Bickman helped make sure it stayed there, leaping and reaching over the fence to bring back a potential home run in the bottom of the inning, and Thomas worked around two seventhinning errors to finish his complete-game effort. For the game, Thomas allowed just four hits and struck out three. But the team had itswork cut out for them Thursday, as North Carolina eliminated Mt. Pleasant, Texas by a 13-3 score, meaning Team Florida will need to top them twice if they hope to bring the Ozone World Series trophy home to Sebring for the third consecutive year. Continued from 1B little emotional at the last couple practices. Some of these guys will be entering high school next year and this is likely the last time theyll have a c hance like this as a team. They are seeing that this c ould be their last hurrah as a team and they want to make it special. Team Florida opens up this latest World Series quest Saturday at 7 p.m. against that familiar Tennessee squad, AAAs take first stepFollowing in the footsteps of their 13-year old elder brethren, the Sebring AAA All-Stars are making their first trip to the Dixie World Series. Though the trip isnt exactly a long one, with this years event being hosted by nearby Bartow. And its probably a good thing, considering the state the youngsters find themselves in, a multi-state car ride might not be the best thing. The team is really excited and theyre tired of practicing, head coach Anthony Gaines said. Sometimes when youve got three weeks before a tournament, the kids start getting on each others nerves. But that can be a good thing, because they get to take it out on someone else once the tournament starts. The youngsters passed the tests they had at the State Tournament, bouncing back from a loss to run the table the rest of the way. But that was then, and as state champs, they are now just one of many. All these teams are state champions, Gaines said. There will be no easy games. These guys are the best of the best and and we cant take for granted that were going to win. Eleven states will be represented, stretching across the south from Virginia to Texas, with Florida having two teams in the mix with Sebring and h ost Bartow. And while the hits will surely come, from a lineup boasting the likes of Desmond Gaines, Hunter Vanderpool, LJ Daniels, Drew Morris, Drew Smith, Robert Spoone, Ty Kilgo, Blayne Huter, Kyle Mercer and Kamiron Taylor, the name of the game for the lil Streaks this weekend will be defense. e get after the hitting and thats one part of the game, but the kids know that you cant take that out on the field, Gaines said. If theres an easy pop fly, youve got to catch it. If there is an easy ground ball, youve got to make the out. e need to make their 18 outs hard on them, and our 18 outs easiest on us. And regardless of how this venture to the biggest stage turns out, Gaines knows just getting there was a community effort. e really appreciate the community and will represent them well, he said. We have the best parents, who stand by their kids 100-percent. Were more than a baseball team, were a family no matter what happens. Continued from 1B Series trips coming full circle News-Sun file photo by LAUREN WELBORN LJ Daniels and the Sebring All-Stars will be swinging away in the Dixie AAA World Series, beginning Saturday night, i n Bartow. So, if youre a fisherman, or you just spend time in the s un, wear a high SPF sunscreen and see your dermatologist once a year. I finally got out to Lake June this week. Ashort trip in the evening yielded two nice bass on a white spinnerbait and one on a diving crankbait in 10 feet of water. This is one beautiful lake a nd I hope to spend more time learning it in the future. Saturday, Burt Watkins and I managed to catch six nice bass between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Lake Glenada. All six of the fish were 2 to 4 pounds, and most were almost a silver white color, indicating to me that theyd just moved in from deeper water. Only one of the bass was taken in deeper water, around 12 feet. The rest were all caught in the reeds in 2to 3-feet of water on a blue-black plastic worm. The rain came in early on Sunday so I spent the day repairing a few rods and sorting through my tackle. Im always amazed by how much fishing tackle Ive accumulated over the years. Of course, I have some of my Dads old tackle, and probably even some of his Dads. As I perused the old scarred Jitterbugs, Hula Poppers that had long since lost their skirts, and jointed Pikie Minnows with gnarled treble hooks, I daydreamed about the stories these lures, and many like them could tell. We caught hundreds of bass, walleyes and muskies on these old lures, and like many things in the past, they were retired to make way for the shiny new lures of today. But I decided Id take a few of these old warriors out and try them again, just for old times sake. I picked what I considered to be the dirty dozen, a mixed bag of spoons and plugs, and placed them in a plastic box for my next trip. Ill let you know if they still work!

By KYLE HIGHTOWER Associated PressORLANDO Central Florida basketball coach Donnie Jones says that though hes still digesting the sanctions handed down this week by the NCAAfor major recruiting violations, hes optimistic about his program going forward. Jones said Wednesday that though the school has only publicly announced an intention to appeal the football programs one-year postseason ban, all penalties including the 2013 postseason ban for basketball are being reviewed by UCF officials. ANCAAbylaw also allows UCF seniors for both programs the opportunity to transfer and play immediately, since eligibility limits wont allow them to do so again if they were to stay. For the basketball program that could mean the departures of All-Conference USAbig man Keith Clanton and guard Marcus Jordan, the son of former NBAstar Michael Jordan. I met with the team yesterday, Jones said. I met with all those guys individually and obviously theyre disappointed, like anybody when you hear the initial reaction from that. But it was a very encouraging sign when I was walking out of the door last night late and our whole team is in there playing together UCFs Jones optimistic following NCAA sanctions

Three new studies are bolstering a long-debated idea:that tumors contain their own pool of stem cells that can multiply and keepf ueling the cancer,seeding regrowth. If thats true,scientists w ill need to find a way to kill those cells,apart from how they attack the rest oft he tumor. Stem cells in healthy tiss ues are known for their ability to produce any kind of cell. The new researchd eals with a different kind, cancer stem cells. Some r esearchers,but not all, believe they lurk as a persisting feature in tumors. Over the past decade, studies have found evi-d ence for them in tumors like breast and colon canc ers. But this research has largely depended on transplanting human cancer cellsi nto mice that dont have immune systems,an artific ial environment that raises questions about the relevance of the results. N ow,three studies reported online Wednesday in the journals Nature and Science present evidence for cancer stem cells within the original tumors. Again, the research relies on mice. That and other factors meant he new findings still wont convince everyone that cancer stem cells are key to finding more powerful treatments. B ut researcher Luis Parada,of the University of Texas SouthwesternM edical Center in Dallas, believes his team is onto something. He says that fort he type of brain tumor his team studied,ve ident ified the true enemy. If his finding applies to other cancers,he said,thene ven if chemotherapy drastically shrinks a tumor but d oesnt affect its supply of cancer stem cells,ery little progress has actually been made. The three studies used l abeling techniques to trace the ancestry of cells within m ouse tumors. Collectively,they give ery strong supportto thec ancer stem cell theory, said Jeffrey M. Rosen,a p rofessor of molecular and cellular biology at Baylor College of Medicine in H ouston. He did not participate in the work but supports the theory,which he said is widely accepted. Cancer debate: Are tumors fueled by stem cells?
C M Y K By LEANNE ITALIE A ssociated PressN EW YORK In 1976, as a 24-year-old grad student,Samira Beckwith was diagnosed with the thing people still whispered about:c ancer. She was in and out of the hospital,had five surgeries and endured round after round of chemotherapy andr adiation as she battled Hodgkins lymphoma. Beyond a few professors and close friends,she didnt routinely tell people of her bleak diagnosis as shef ocused on staying alive. Years later,as she was a bout to turn 50,disaster struck again. This time it was breast cancer and a dou-b le mastectomy. Her desire for a bit of privacy was the s ame,but society and sickness had become a share-all whirl. Back the first time around,people didnt wantt o hear or talk about cancer. But the boundaries changed, a nd the second time it was breast cancer. People really like to talk about breast can-c er,said Beckwith,now 59 and clinical director of a h ealth care services company in Fort Myers. But there are still many p eople who want to keep their illness,keep the decisions that there making, w ithin a close circle,she said. They dont want to be o ut there on Facebook. Its almost like theres something wrong with them because they dont want to share. N ora Ephron might have agreed. The humorist who chronicled her life in books and lent romance a laugh in movies kept her leukemia largely locked down to the point that her death lastm onth at age 71 stunned even some close friends. If s he had any wisecracks about cancer,she didnt share them with the world. Theres no one right way to handle news of a life-t hreatening diagnosis,but how difficult is it for people t o tell or not tell,and at what cost? Michael Jaillet,a senior e xecutive at Dell,learned June 20,2011,that he had a myotrophic lateral sclerosis,or ALS. It was the ultimate horror,he said. Only his wife and three brothers knew for several months ash e sought out a diagnosis, then second and third and fourth opinions. Among those initially left out of the loop were coworkers and his three children,now 14,13 and 11. It became,in a lot of ways,a bigger burden than t he disease,Jaillet said of the secret. s guilt,tiptoeing around,talking in code. Its clearing out your email ory our Internet browser every night because you know your kids are going to get on and you dont want them to see what youve been research-i ng. Now outand active in r aising money for research and supporting others with ALS,the 41-year-old Jaillet sees dignity in going public and embracing a broaderb ase of emotional support. I feel like Ive got a torch that I have to carry,he said. Often with limited energy and a need to maintain nor-m al routines,people faced with life-changing illness m ay not know how to go about deciding when,how and how much to disclose. Someones going to know.Words going to geto ut and then youre in a position and there in a p osition of sort of dancing around the elephant in the room,said psychotherapist F redda Wasserman,who has spent 40 years helping peop le navigate that journey. Anticipating how people will react can be a huge source of anxiety,said Wasserman,clinical directoro f Our House,a grief counseling and support center in Los Angeles and co-author of the 2010 book Saying Goodbye to Someone You Love. If sharing the journey is a p riority,then be clear about what you need from those y ou tell,she suggests. An offer of dinner,for instance,doesnt have to mean a night of chitchat with the person who brought it. Do you need jokes tok eep you laughing or a shoulder for crying? People sometimes want to pray for you. If they do, you can tell them whaty oure hoping for,she said. If Im looking for a cure, that. Maybe Im just hoping for a day free of pain. Maybe Im looking for thes trength and courage to face what is ahead for me. Let me tell you what I want. For others,talking about their illness is the last thing they want to do. It makes them feel worse,Wasserman said. Its,I dont want to think of myself as a cancer patient. I dont want to bet alking about my aches and pains.Sometimes people w ill tell and then really regret it,because there being treated differently. Taking control of the conversation is important,shes aid. Say,Look,I dont want y ou to treat me like Im dying,or I dont want you to treat me like Im pathetic,W asserman said. Thats one reason why a lot of people d ont tell. Their skin cringes to have people talk to them like that. J essica Aguirre,the mother of two young boys in Green Acres,was 29 when d iagnosed with breast cancer nearly two years ago. Her b ad news came just three days before she received a promotion to manager of the cell phone store where she is now on medical leave,aftert he cancer spread to her brain. I just decided to be completely open with everything and everyone at work,she said. I just thought,you know w hat,maybe having this can help somebody else. I think t hat if you do keep it to yourself it will eat you up inside. Dear Pharmacist: While in the hospital I received an IV antibiotic,and now I have to take two antibiotics while home. My pharmacist warned me to continue taking it,and not stop,but these drugs make me feel sick. What will happen if I stop too soon? R.H,Denver,Colo. Answer: Im not clued in to what harmful organism youre facing,but I can tell you theres a right and wrong way to stopping medications. Antibiotics,antivirals and antifungals can all be discontinued suddenly (without tapering down), however,stopping before youve completed your course will cause resistance. The bad bugs will have seen the antibiotic just long enough to become desensitized and adapt to it. Next time they see it,the bugs tell the antibiotic to talk to the hand. As an example,if you stop taking an antibiotic for staph,it could morph into a deadly infection called MRSA. I dont advocate pill-popping for every itch and scratch. In fact,I find the big commercial push for medications rather annoying. But Im responsible,and do think its important to stay on your medicine if youre treating a chronic infection, or a dangerous pathogen such as certain species of Clostridium,E. Coli,MRSA, West Nile,Legionella, Anthrax,Borellia, Bartonella,Strep pyogenes and many others. Just FYI,that last bug eats flesh! With drug therapy,I always say weigh the benefits to your risks. I dont believe in using antibiotics like a wet blanket for people when you cant pinpoint the exact pathogen. And its equally dangerous to your health to take antibiotics without also taking probiotics,and yet people are not told to do this as the standard of care. If this is news to you, please get a live,viable probiotic blend such as Dr. Ohhiras or Xymogens ProbioMax,Culturelle and many others. Probiotics and liver-supporting herbs and nutrients will help minimize the Herx reaction during antibiotic therapy and I think this will help you. For instance,NAC, L-glutathione,milk thistle, dandelion and artichoke extract are great options. A Herx reaction is short for Herxheimer,and refers to the misery one feels during antibiotic therapy,as bugs die in your body,forcing your liver to contend with and clear all those dead bug partsand toxins released upon their demise. If you have concerns about your medicine,speak to your pharmacist and physician about the proper way to discontinue it so you dont wind up with delirium tremens,a seizure or adrenal shock. Heres a partial list of meds that should never be stopped abruptly: Alcohol Pain pills containing hydrocodone or oxycodone Almost all prescribed sleep aids Psychostimulants used for attention deficit or ADHD Anticonvulsants Corticosteroids SSRI or SNRI categories of antidepressants Heres a partial list of some meds that could be stopped abruptly if necessary: Bone building drugs Analgesics such as ibuprofen,naproxin,meloxicam and celecoxib Cholesterol reducers Birth control and hormone replacement Medications for erectile dysfunction Thyroid medication Aspirin and blood thinners Suzy Cohen is a registered pharmacist and the author of The 24-Hour Pharmacist and Real Solutions.

Continued from page 6B RELIGION HAMMOND,Ind. (APA n orthwestern Indiana megachurch has fired its pastor amid a police investigation into the independent Baptist congregation and a college it operates. T he First Baptist Church of Hammond said in a news release Tueday that pastor Jack Schaap committed a sin that has caused him to forfeit his right to be ourp astor.Church representatives said they were cooperating with police,but offered no specifics on the allegations against Schaap. Lake County Sheriff John B uncich told The Times of Munster that his department b egan a criminal investigation of the church and Hyles Anderson College after talking with high-r anking representatives of the congregation. He declined to i dentify the target of the investigation or other details. First Baptist elected Schaap its pastor in February 2001,a month after the late Rev. Jack Hyles died of a heart attack. S chaap,now 54,is a Holland, Mich.,native who came to northwestern Indiana in 1977 to attend and graduate from HylesAnderson College,which Hylesf ounded four decades ago. He met and married Hyles youngest daughter,Cindy,and served the church early in his career as an assistant youthd irector,bus captain and mentor to young students. He preached and taught in the college,and was its vice president for four years before becoming pastor. Schaap committed himself toc arrying on Hylesfundamentalist view of the Christian faith. H ylescharismatic leadership as pastor of the church beginning in 1959 helped it grow intoa megachurch with hundreds of church buses transporting thous ands of worshippers across northwest Indiana and Chicagos south suburbs to what it bills as the Worlds Largest Sunday School.

C M Y K A ssociated PressI n a world more to his liking,Gore Vidal might have been president,or even king. He had an aristocrats bearing tall,handsome and comp osed and an authoritative baritone ideal for summoning an aide or courtier. But Vidal made his living a very good living from c hallenging power,not holding it. He was wealthy and famous and committed to exposing a system often led by men he knew firsthand. During the days of FranklinR oosevelt,one of the few leaders whom Vidal admired, h e might have been called a traitor to his class.The real traitors,Vidal would respond,w ere the upholders of his class. T he author,playwright, politician and commentator whose vast and sharpened range of published works and public remarks were stampedb y his immodest wit and unconventional wisdom,died T uesday at age 86 in Los Angeles of complications from pneumonia,his nephewB urr Steers said. Vidal had been living alone in the home a nd had been sick for quite a while,Steers said. Vidal meant everything to m e when I was learning how to write and learning how to read,Dave Eggers said at the 2 009 National Book Awards ceremony,where he and Vidal r eceived honorary citations. His words,his intellect,his activism,his ability and willingness to always speak up and hold his governmenta ccountable,especially,has been so inspiring to me I cant articulate it. Along with such contemporaries as Norman Mailer and Truman Capote,he was among the last generation ofl iterary writers who were also genuine celebrities regul ars on talk shows and in gossip columns,personalities of such size and appeal that even those who hadnt read their books knew their names. H is works included hundreds of essays,the best-selling novels Lincolnand Myra Breckenridgeand the Tony-nominated play TheB est Man,a melodrama about a presidential convention revived on Broadway in 2012. Vidal appeared cold and cynical on the surface, dispassionately predicting the fall of democracy,the American empires decline or the destruction of the environment. But he bore a melancholy regard for lost worlds, for reason and the primacy of the written word,for the ancient American sense that whatever is wrong with human society can be put right by human action. Vidal was uncomfortable with the literary and political establishment,and the feeling was mutual. Beyond his honorary National Book Award, he won few major writing prizes,lost both times he ran for office and initially declined membership into the American Academy of Arts a nd Letters,joking that he already belonged to the D iners Club. (He was eventually admitted,in 1999). But he was widely admired a s an independent thinker in the tradition of Mark Twain a nd H.L. Mencken about literature,culture,politics and,as he liked to call it,the birds and the bees.He picked apart politicians,living andd ead; mocked religion and prudery; opposed wars from V ietnam to Iraq and insulted his peers like no other,once observing that the three sad-d est words in the English language were Joyce Carol O ates.(The happiest words: I told you so). Ralph Ellison labeled him a campy patrician.Vidal had an old-fashioned belief in honor,but a modern will to l ive as he pleased. He wrote in the memoir Palimpsestthat h e had more than 1,000 sexual encounters,nothing special,he added,compared to the pursuits of such peers as John F. Kennedy andT ennessee Williams. Vidal was fond of drink and alleged t hat he had sampled every major drug,once. He never married and for decades shared a scenic villa in Ravello,Italy,with compan-i on Howard Austen. In print and in person,he was a shameless name dropper,but what names! John and Jacqueline Kennedy. HillaryC linton. Tennessee Williams. Mick Jagger. Orson Welles. Frank Sinatra. Marlon Brando. Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward. Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon. V idal dined with Welles in Los Angeles,lunched with the K ennedys in Florida,clowned with the Newmans in Connecticut,drove wildlya round Rome with a nearsighted Williams and escorted J agger on a sightseeing tour along the Italian coast. He campaigned with Eleanor Roosevelt and Harry Truman. He butted heads,literally,w ith Mailer. He helped director William Wyler with the s cript for Ben-Hur.He made guest appearances on everything from The Simpsonsto Rowan and Martins LaughIn. V idal formed his most unusual bond with Oklahoma City bomber TimothyM cVeigh. The two exchanged letters after Vidals 1998 article in V anity Fair on the shreddingof the Bill of Rights and t heir friendship inspired Edmund Whites play Terre Haute. s very intelligent. Hes not insane,Vidal said ofM cVeigh in a 2001 interview. FORT COLLINS,Colo. (AP Presbyterian Church of Fort Collins are seeking dismissal from the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.which last year struck down a barrier to ordaining gay leaders. The Coloradoan reports leaders of the Fort Collins church are citing irreconcilable spiritual differencesin recommending that it join the Fellowship of Presbyterians and seek dismissal from its denomination. The Fort Collins congregation of about 1,000 would have to take an advisory vote on leaving,and Executive Presbyter of the Presbytery of Plains and Peaks Dan Saperstein must ultimately approve whether the dismissal occurs. A final decision could come within a year. Church member Dale Preston says he plans to oppose the move. He says he and others believe the Presbyterian church has a history of being respectful of diverse opinions.

Hi,my name is Pastor Reinhold Buxbaum from The Church of The Way, and Id like a word with y ou. God made an everlasting covenant with Israel inG enesis 12:3:I will bless t hose who will bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse.(NIV T his promise of God has not expired. In fact,you can look back in history to prove it. Take Great Britain,for i nstance. Great Britain was a world empire until it turned on Israel. In N ovember of 1917 the B alfour Declaration was issued which allowed the I sraelites to have their own c ountry again. But then Great Britain had a change of heart and opposed Israel a t every turn. Their leaders had forgotten that God had promised Abraham that he w ould bless those who b less Israel. As a result,the British E mpire was reduced from t he powerhouse where the s un never went downto a struggling country. O r take the German Reich. Hitler wanted to take o ver the entire world. Part of his plan was to systematically kill all Jews. He actu-a lly managed to kill 50 percent of the worlds Jewish population. He built greatg hettos where he treated Jews like animals. I s it not ironic,that after the total destruction of Germany a wall was builta round half of the country and most of the East G ermans where kept at poverty levels? History tells us that this principle of blessings and curses was repeated overa nd over in many other countries,like Spain, R ussia and Poland. Now to us. Historically, America has been a greatb lessing to Israel. American presidents have made a g reat difference. They had part in creating Israel in 1948. They also had part in some of their war victories. I t was President Nixon who received an urgent phone call in early October of 1973 from the Prime Minister Golda Meir. Israelw as being attacked once again from the surrounding nations. Nixon gave immediate orders to airlift all available war material fromU S military stations in Germany to Israel. The war was won. By the way,it was Nixons mother who had told him years earlier that If Israel ever needs help, give them as much as you c an. She was a devout Christian. L ately,American administrations have put much p ressure on Israel to give up land for peace. Do we really think that God will bless us if we try to reduce Israel once again? Y es,the stage is set for the second coming of Jesus! Reinhold Buxbaum is Pastor of The Church of The Way.

C M Y K By ANTHONY McCARTNEY AP Entertainment WriterLOS ANGELES Like many of the stars of her era, Marilyn Monroes movements,relationships and comments werent just devoured by fans they were followed closely by the FBI. Records kept on Monroe, many of which were filed under Foreign Counterintelligence,have intrigued many who have sought to learn more about the film star,including those who investigated her death. In connection with the 50th anniversary of Monroes death on Aug. 5, The Associated Press has attempted under the Freedom of Information Act to obtain the most complete record of the bureaus monitoring of Monroe. Nearly nine months later after several requests and an appeal obtaining a more complete record of how the FBI investigated Monroe in the months before she died have been stymied by an effort to simply find the files. The FBI says it no longer has the files it compiled on Monroe; the National Archives the usual destination for such material says it doesnt have them either. Finding out precisely when the records were moved as the FBI says has happened required the filing of yet another,stillpending Freedom of Information Act request. The most recent version of the files,all heavily redacted,is publicly available on the bureaus website,The Vault,which periodically posts FBI records on celebrities,government officials, spies and criminals. The AP appealed the FBIs continued censorship of its Monroe files,noting the agency has not given any legal or factual analysis of the foreseeable harm that might result from the release of the full records. Monroes star power and fears she might be recruited by the Communist Party during the tenure of longtime FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover led to reports being taken on her activities and relationships,including her marriage to playwright Arthur Miller. Monroes file begins in 1955 and mostly focuses on her travels and associations, searching for signs of leftist views and possible ties to communism. The file continues up until the months before her death,and also includes several news stories and references to Norman Mailers biography of the actress,which focused on questions about whether Monroe was killed by the government. There have been two major government investigations into Monroes demise the original inquiry immediately after her death and another effort by the Los Angeles District Attornes Office in 1982. The second inquiry, released in December 1982, reviewed all files available investigative reports,including files compiled by the FBI on her death. The records,the DAs office noted,were heavily censored. That mention intrigued the man who performed Monroes autopsy,Dr. Thomas Noguchi. While the DA investigation concluded he conducted a thorough autopsy,Noguchi has conceded that no one will likely ever know all the details of Monroes death. The FBI files and confidential interviews conducted with the actressfriends that have never been made public might help,he wrote in his 1983 memoir Coroner. On the basis of my own involvement in the case, beginning with the autopsy,I would call Monroes suicide ery probable,Noguchi wrote. But I also believe that until the complete FBI files are made public and the notes and interviews of the suicide panel released,controversy will continue to swirl around her death.

Last night I was g oing through a box of his belongings and found some old letters heh ad written to a woman hed left me for 20 years ago. (We patched things upa nd then were married later.) I didnt want to read t hem,but in the first letter I caught the sentence,ou are the only woman Ivee ver met who truly changed me.I immediately tore it t o shreds. There were others,but I tossed everything in the box into the trash. I couldnt put myself through the pain. F or months,I have tried to dwell only on the happy t imes we had together and the love that,in spite of his alcoholism,we had fore ach other. Perhaps I could have dealt with these letters w hile my husband was still alive,but now I can only stew in my own anger. I dont want to do this to myself. I have been in therapy and at Al-Anon,but I feel as though I need other tools at this point to get met hrough this awfulness. Widow in St. Louis Dear Widow: Please accept my condolences for the loss of your husband.I m sure you have many reasons to be angry,and t hose letters are among the least of them. T ry to think rationally about what the letter said. That they were in his possession probably means they were never mailed,a nd its likely they were written while he was drunk. As to the woman having changedhim,from the way he died it doesnta ppear he changed a lot. You have your life ahead of you. If you choose to waste your precious time looking back over your shoulder and cursing a dead man,of course thats your choice. But if you want to break this cycle of destructive thinking,the quickest way to do it would be to contact your therapist for a reality check. Dear Abby: My boyfriend and I have lived t ogether for five years. Wehave decided that we want to get married. He took met o pick out a beautiful ring and put money down to hold the specific ring. S ounds great, right? Well,its not. Unfortunately,myb oyfriend doesnt have the money for it,which is completely understandable,b ecause its quite an expensive ring. H ere is my issue:He recently took a significant amount of money out of his4 01(kf a gambling debt. I also received a v ery large bonus,of which a major portion went to pay the gambling debt. Why would my boyfriend take me to pick out a ring if hek nows he cant afford it? Why would he prioritize h is gambling debt over a ring for me? For us? For our future? Not His First Priority Dear Not His First: C andidly,your boyfriend probably made the gambling debt his top priority b ecause he was afraid if he didnt someone would beat him to a pulp or worse. Surely by now you have realized that he has a gam-b ling problem and is not good with money.Thank your lucky stars you realized it BEFORE marriage. You are living with s omeone who appears to have trouble recognizing t here are consequences for his actions. I f you want a husband who is mature and responsible,stop enabling him and recognize that this man isnt Mr. Right.

B y JAKE COYLE AP Entertainment WriterThe Babymakersis the kind of comedy that makesy ou appreciate Judd Apatow all the more. T his is what happens when emotion and character are sacrificed for jokes,w hen set pieces are preferred over narrative,when a movie i s just a collection of so-so gags. The Babymakersisnt e xactly an official Broken Lizard comedy (Super Troopers,Beerfest),but it bears the comedy troupes hallmarks of goofy gratuitya nd good-natured slapstick. Its directed by the groups Jay Chadrasekhar (he also appears as a former Indian mobster) and features a num-b er of its members,most notably Kevin Hefffernan. B ut the films stars are from far outside the BrokenL izard sphere. Playing a married couple trying,and failing,to have a child are Paul Schneider (All the Real Girls,Bright Star)a nd Olivia Munn (the Daily Shocorrespondent and supporting playing on HBOs The Newsroom). Both are curious leads for a broad comedy Schneider because he has definite acting chops (his performance in All the Real Girlsis a rare combination tender and funny),and Munn because shes almost dis-t ractingly stunning. They have decent chemi stry,though,as a couple bonded by a shared,casuall ewdness. Their conversation about having a kid begins as a mock discussion about anal sex. That theoretically shocking tone is maintainedt hroughout Babymakers, which would prefer to treat childbearing with less sanctity and more semen jokes. Its a welcome attitude in a n age of hyper-conscious parenting,but Babymakers is doomed by its lack of heart. It opens curiously, because the film is about the difficulties of impregnation with the couple,Tommy and Audrey,woken by a crying baby in the next room. Audrey tells him its hist urn,to which Tommy reluctantly rises,shuts the door, mutters goddamn babyand returns to bed. T he tone is set:These are glib,selfish people and little that follows suggests they should be parents,or have any real interest in being them. Instead,Babymakersis a n increasingly incredulously plotted series of embarr assments about the wounded masculinity of a low sperm count. Ensuing misund erstandings nearly drive Audrey and Tommy apart a nd push Tommy to an illconceived sperm bank heist. Schneider,who also starred for a time on NBCs arks & Recreation,has an easy Southern charm that can be natural or rakish,but few have known what do with him beside his longtime f riend David Gordon Green, who directed All the Real Girls.He nearly singlehande dly gives Babymakersa little substance if only thes cript,by Peter Gaulke and Gerry Swallow,allowed for a little besides the easy gag.

NEW YORK (AP V iewer excitement about the Olympics is translating into gold for NBC:The broadcaster now expects to break even on the LondonG ames rather than take a loss. e are way ahead of w here we thought wed be,NBCUniversal CEO Steve Burke saidW ednesday. Covering the Olympics w as more challenging for NBC this year because of the time difference withE urope. With London five hours ahead of New York, N BC isnt able to show any events live in prime time. In Beijing four years ago,NBC was able to show morning events sucha s Michael Phelpsgoldmedal swims live during i ts evening broadcasts. But instead of the expected 20 percent rat-i ngs plunge compared with Beijing,Burke said,NBC i s seeing audiences up 9 percent so far,five days into the event. We think that is because of the way we promoted the Olympics during the hundred days leading up to theO lympics,Burke said. Tuesdays Olympics telecast,featuring Phelps record-setting swim and the gold-medal perform-a nce of the U.S. womens gymnastics team,had the h ighest rating of any night so far. C ombined with higher production costs in London,NBC had expected at one point to take a $200 million loss for theg ames. NBC paid $1.2 billion for the rights to show the games on TV and online in the U.S. Before the games opened,it said its old more than $1 billion in ads,breaking the record of $850 million set during the Beijing Olympics. CEO says NBC set to break even on Olympics
C M Y K LIVING B SE CTION News-Sun Friday August 3, 2012 Photo courtesy of Getty ImagesFAMILY FEATURES With more than 26 bones,33 joints and more than one h undred muscles,tendons and ligaments,the human foot is quite a complicated piece of anatomy.A lot of people take their feet f or granted until they start to hurt. U nfortunately,most people will have to deal with painful feet at some time. The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMAc ent of Americans will have some kind o f foot problem during their lifetime. Some problems are caused by congenital problems or disabilities,but most come from general wear and tear,a s well as abuse. H ere are some common foot problems and what you can do to treat them: Plantar FasciitisThis is an inflammation of the plantar fascia, t he band of thick,connective tissue that runs from the heel bone to the toes,creating the a rch of your foot. When the plantar fascia is overstretched or overused,it gets inflamed, causing pain and stiffness in the bottom of the heel,and sometimes aching or a burning sensation in the bottom of the foot. Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common orthopedic foot complaints,and i s seen in both men and women. According to the National Institutes of Health,youre more likely to get plantar fasciitis if you have foot arch problems,a sudden weight gain,shoes with poor arch support,or if you are involved in long distance running.Treatments See your healthcare provider. He or she may start by recommending:Medication and/or ice treatments to reduce inflammationS tretching exercises for the heel a nd footRestNight splintsShoes with good support; shoe inserts or a heel cup Treatment can last anywhere from several weeks to two years,though most feel better in about nine months. Sometimes,more drastic measures are called for,such as wearing a boot cast for several weeks,steroid shots or foot surgery. BunionsA bunion occurs when the joint at the base of the big toe gets enlarged due to the big toe joint being moved out of place. The toe is forced to bend toward the other toes, which causes a painful lump of bone to form on the foot. The joint itself can also become stiff and sore,making it even more difficult to wear shoes or walk. According to the APMA,bunions are a symptom of faulty foot development,and are usually caused by an inherited foot type, as well as the way people walk and the type of shoes worn. Symptoms include redness, swelling or pain near the big toe joint,a firm bump on the outside edge of the foot at the base of the big toe,and restricted or painful motion of the big toe.TreatmentsYou can relieve some of the pain by:Using a commercial,non-medicated bunion padWearing shoes with a wide,deep toe boxAvoiding high-heeled shoesApplying ice several times a day to reduce swelling. You should visit a podiatrist if the pain persists. If left untreated,bunions can get larger and more painful. Your doctor may recommend padding and taping,anti-inflammatory drugs or cortisone injections,physical therapy or shoe inserts. Surgery to remove the bony enlargement and/or restore normal alignment may be necessary.Findingreliefforcommonfootproblems Ingrown ToenailsIngrown nails are the most common nail problem. When one or both of the corners or sides of the nail curves,and grows into the flesh,it can lead to irritation,redness and swelling. Ingrown toenails can be caused by heredity,improperly trimmed nails,shoe pressure and crowding of toes,or repeated trauma to the feet from everyday activities such as running or walking.TreatmentsTo relieve pain,immerse your foot in a basin of warm salt water or soapy water,then apply an antiseptic and bandage the affected area. However,anyone with diabetes,peripheral vascular disease or other circulatory disorders should avoid any type of self-treatment,according to the APMA. Seek medical care as soon as possible. If there is drainage,odor or excessive redness, you may have an infection. See a podiatrist or health care provider. For chronic problems with ingrown toenails,a podiatrist can remove a portion of the nail with a chemical,laser or other outpatient procedure.To prevent ingrown toenails:Avoid tight shoes and shoes with narrow or pointed toe boxes.Do not rip or tear the edges of your nails.Trim toenails by cutting them straight across. Do not dig into the corners, and only gently round off corners with a nail file.HammertoesA hammertoe is a toe that is curled because theres a bend in the middle joint of the toe. It can happen with any toe,but is most often the second toe. Its caused by an imbalance in the soft tissue,often due to shoes that are too tight or shoes with high heels. These types of shoes force the toe against the front of the shoe,bending the toe unnaturally. Symptoms of hammertoe can include redness and inflammation,joint stiffness,corns,calluses and open sores,and pain. If left untreated,symptoms can become worse,making it difficult to walk and wear shoes.TreatmentsTreatment options for hammertoes range from the simple to the surgical. Nonsurgical treatment options include:Wearing wider shoes with lower heelsDoing toe exercisesUsing padding,tape or splintingTaking medication for the painUsing orthotics Up until recently,surgical treatment meant partial or full removal of bone and cartilage in the joint,and inserting a pin that protruded from the toe for four to six weeks. This makes it diffi cult for patients to work,bathe,drive or sleep normally until the pin is removed. However,a new surgical option,called nextra desis,is now available. The procedure uses a micro-implant called Nextra,designed to straighten a toe to a stable,natural position. Developed by two prominent foot and ankle surgeons, Nextra was reviewed and cleared by the US Foo d and Drug Administration in 2011. With this procedure,patients can return to work and normal activities,bathe more regularly and sleep more peacefully than with traditional pins. The risk of infection and reoccurrence of a hammertoe is also reduce d significantly when bone healing occurs. Learn more about the nextradesis surgical procedure at www.myhappytoes.com.
