Council members got a look at the preliminary rate resolution at their regular meeting Monday evening. Avon Park City Manager Julian Deleon said that as the city has grown, more taxable properties have been added, which would allow for the reduction. However, not everybody is happy about the proposed decrease. Avon Park Fire Captain Warren West told the council the citys department needs a full-time re inspector and more men to staff the facility in case of an emergency. An ad hoc committee has recommended that we run a four-man minimum in the department. Currently we are running three, he told council members. West also pointed to the annexation as a challenge to reghters, saying that the city has Deleon, fire department at odds over fire assessment Katara Simmons/News-SunAvon Park Fire Department Lt.

The Florida Forest Service will be showcasing their wild land reghting equipment for childr en of all ages , said Wild re Mitigation Specialist Melissa Yunas. The display will be set up fr om 11 / a.m. until 4 / p .m. in front of the B&B Theater, in celebration of the new Disney Planes: Fire and Rescue mo vie Were tying in the movie showing with re prevention methods, Yunas said. The second edition of the popular Planes movie fran chise will feature a dynamic cr ew of elite r eghting aircraft devoted to protecting historic Piston Peak National Park from raging wildre. In this edition, the hero of the rst lm, Dusty, forsakes air racing after learning his engine is damaged and he may never race again. He then shifts gears and is launched into the world of aerial reghting. Dusty joins forces with vet eran re and rescue helicopter Blade Ranger and his team, including spir ited super scooper D ipper, heavy-lift helicopter Windlifter, ex-military transport Cabbie and a number of other all-terr ain v ehicles known collectively as The Smokejumpers. Together, they battle a massive wildre and Dusty lear ns what it takes to become a true hero. This movie is a great oppor tunity to educate the children of H ighlands C ounty about the importance of wildre prevention, said Forest Area Super visor Joe deBree. Eighty per cent of all wildres in Highlands C ounty ar e caused by people. We hope to teach youngsters that matches are not toys. Childr en hav e a natural curiosity about re and you cannot under estimate their ability to strike matches or start a lighter. Scheduled for display so far are Forest Service brush trucks, engines, bulldozers and a Se bring Fire Department ladder tr uck. As par t of the days activities, a number of Forest Service R angers and r eghters will be on hand to talk with youngsters and their parents about ghting res as well as re safety. An appearance by Smokey the Bear also is planned. Its Smokeys 70th birthday this year, Yunas pointed out. He has not gotten gray, has no plans for retirement and his message remains strong. In addition to being al lowed to climb on the differ ent trucks and reghting vehicles, a number of games also ar e scheduled. Were going to let the kids play with the water hose and we have a cornhole toss game, Yunas said. We have a coloring contest, too Yunas said although the For est Service has done events for childr en in the past, this is the rst time they have been able to tie it together with a major motion picture. 3060960 rfn tnbnbf f AmericaFirst tsriF aciremA tsriF aciremA tsriF aciremA AirConditioning&Heating tsriF aciremA tsriF aciremA gnitaeH & gninoitidnoC riA gnitaeH & gninoitidnoC riA gnitaeH & gninoitidnoC riA gnitaeH & gninoitidnoC riA gnitaeH & gninoitidnoC riA rf nrrtfbr f WhentheDogDaysofSummermakeyou HOT CountonAmericaFirst to KeepYou COOL! 3061856 rfntbbtftfn bbnr r ffntbn 3062461 BY LARR YY GRIFFINStaff Writer VENUS Over $8,000 and 131 pounds of marijua na in a cannabis trafcking oper ation led to an arr est for multiple drug crimes Tuesday.

Rounding out that ve-person race are Clinton Culver house with $8,220 and W illiam Pep Hutchison, who has registered $2,140 in his campaign fund. Looking at the D istr ict 1 race for school boar d, challenger Charlene E dwards has gathered $6,606 in donations, Aljoe Hinson has a curr ent total of $4,515 while incumbent R onnie Jackson has $2,670 listed. Although he is r unning unopposed, D istrict 4 incumbent William Bill Brantley lists $1,300 in his account. O n the other side of the ledger Murphy has not only gathered the most money, the District 5 candidate also has spent the most $10,392. A ccor ding to his campaign report, most of that has gone for signs. Spending the least so far is Jackson. His strat egy seems to be using campaign car ds and a dir ect mailing system. The candidates currently are on a twow eek cy cle for reporting. Their next updates ar e due on J uly 25. Beginning in August that schedule will go to w eekly r eports and remain that way up until the election. R unning as non-partisan, the school boar d candidates will appear on the A ug. 26 pr imary ballot. While candidates are out stumping, Highlands County Supervisor of Elections Penny O gg said she and her staff hav e been getting ballots ready for voters and some already have been sent out. We mailed out 167 absentees to military and civilian recipients overseas this past Fri day, she said. Domestic absentees will go out Tuesday . FUNDS FROM PAGE A A 1nearly doubled in size, leading to longer run times. It takes us seven minutes to get to get to Crystal Lake. That is outside NFPA stan dards, he said. At some time w e ar e going to have to look at adding to the depar tment and adding mor e men. The captain also noted the citys aging engine eet that he contended needed r eplacement or r epair. W est told the council that Engine 5 is seven years old, while Engine 6 is now 20 years old. I just nd it hard. Were actually bringing in some money, were expanding the city making reghters run further with less to work with, he said. There are more hy drants to check and w e ar e lowering the assessment. W est asked council members to leave the assessment as is for a year to help fund the upgrades. Deleon re sponded that Highlands County has an all-v olunteer for ce, and there was no state requirement for the city to pr o vide a full-time re department for its citizens. As far as the repairs to the re truck, this is the rst I have heard of it but we can address that. Its not a con cern, he said. D eleon contended ther e was more than enough money in the city s infrastructure fund to deal with equipment issues If we have to replace Engine 5 or need a new ladder truck, thats what your infrastructure fund is for, he said. We have a $1.8 million balance in reserves now. As to r equests for a full time inspector, Deleon simply said, Thats not going to happen. Deleon also leveled charges against reghters, saying they apparently had the ability to make inspec tions, inasmuch as reghters had time to wash boats and work on cars. We got all kinds of time back there, he said. When rst enacted, city council members touted the assessment, saying it would be paid by everyone regardless of whether or not they paid property taxes to the city. Later, the fees also were levied against churches and oth er non-prot groups, which also r equir e re protection. As to the infrastructure tax, former Avon P ar k councilman and mayor Tom Macklin cautioned the board that the issues fate is uncertain, as it will be up for a referendum during the August pri mary elections. I also hav e been of the opinion that the entire re department budget should be fund ed through the assessment, he said. Cur rently, it is not.

Both Democrats and Republicans have used the tactic of reworking vot ing districts to favor their candidates for as l ong as anyone can remember. But, the behind-the-scenes tactics Flor ida Republicans used to skirt a new state law and realign v oting districts border on criminal. Last week, after a 13-day trial, Leon County Circuit Court Judge Terry Lew is ruled that two of the states 27 districts w er e invalid drawn up solely through the efforts of GOP legislators and the Re publican party to give their candidates an edge. H e ordered the district redrawn a procedure that likely will be postponed while Republicans appeal the decision. In 2010, the League of Women Vot ers and other advocacy groups helped pass the F air D istricts Amendment which called for more geographically compact electoral districts. It was passed by voters and became a constitutional amendment we hoped would restrict, if not altogether stop, playing with state maps to favor can didates. The pr actice of gerr ymandering is ob vious in a state that was twice carried by P r esident Barack Obama and which has 459,000 more registered Democrats than Republicans. Despite that, Floridas con gressional delegation has only 10 Demo crats out of 27 House seats. The r edr awn maps include the districts of Rep. Corrine Brown, a Jacksonville Democrat, and District 10, held by Repub lican U.S. Rep. Dan Webster. Browns dis trict, which looks like a snake on a map, is packed with minor ity neighbor hoods that normally might be in Websters dis trict. The judge ruled that Republican leg islators collaborated with political consultants to draw these maps and protect GOP incumbents J udge Lewis commented that the pro cess used by Republicans made a mockery of the Legislatures transparent and open pr ocess of r edistricting, and went to great lengths to conceal from the pub lic their plan and their participation in it. Republicans hav e argued that the con guration of districts, especially that of R ep Brown, were done so to adhere to the Voting Rights Act, designed to assure the rights of minority voters. Judge Lew is discounted that argument by saying the changes to D istr ict 10 beneted the in cumbent Rep. Webster and violated the F air D istrict amendment. All of this was carried out behind closed doors with no public access to the process. Violations of the Fair District amend ment and the states Sunshine laws are spr inkled thr oughout the evidence that came to light during the trial. While gerrymandering is so common it has become almost an accepted practice of the party in power, we believe ignoring the law and the blatant manipulation of the process to avoid scrutiny rise to an alltime low for a political party in Florida.An editorial from the Englewood Sun.Glen Nickerson President firstname.lastname@example.orgRedistricting flap a black eye for state GOP NN o just c ompensationThere has been a lot of diatribe about excess of money put into the political campaigns by big corporations and moneyed people The Supreme Court ruled that this was free speech and therefore was constitutional. I do not object to all this money going to suppor t campaigns because it goes to pay checks I think that the objection is because the money goes to people with a different ideology. What I think is un constitutional is for C ongr ess to take our taxes and spend it on their political campaigns. The constitution states nor shall pr iv ate money (property) be taken for public use,without JUST C OMP ENSATION. The supreme court has ruled that money is property. No money should leave the treasure except for labor or goods Ther e is no just compensation in welfare and subsidies. We do not r ail against this because we do not want to give up all the goodies that are bestowed upon us. Isnt it illegal to pay someone to vote for you? S hall w e ignore history? Governments do not sur viv e when it takes to much (taxes) from its citizens for whatever reason. Does $17 trillion debt ring a bell? Will we the people provide the safety net that the government is not authorized to do? What did we the people do before the government bribed us with their safety net.

That unhappy distinction based on the mur der r ate per 100,000 people, not on the number of actual dead people on the streets belongs to poor, underpopulated Flint, Mich. Chicago gets the bad rap and the attention of the anti-gun nuts because it led the na tion with 415 homicides last year Thats more murders than any other city, but not even in the top 10 when you factor in population. Thanks to its recent Independence Day Massacre, which left 18 dead and 82 wounded, Chicagos murder toll has already hit 201 for this year. Homicides have been trending down in Mayor Emanuels kind of town and other major cities for decades. Chicago had nearly 1,000 mur ders a year in the early 1990s B ut most of the citys murder victims, and their murderers, contin ue to be young blacks and Latinos who either belonged to gangs or were the victims of their drive-by violence. The slaughter in our inner cities, while not as bloody as it used to be, is our continuing na tional tragedy. Chicago and statistically more dangerous cities like Detr oit, New Orleans and Washington are perpetual war z ones wher e Americans kill each other year r ound. The only solution liber als have for ending gun violence in the cities is to take away everybodys guns. B ut Chicago alr eady has some of the countrys toughest gun laws. They ob viously don t bother the local drug lords. No one ever wants to address the underlying cause of the violence in our inner cities. Its not the presence of guns. Its the absence of fathers in the homes of the gang-bangers who are using guns to shoot each other. The numbers are depressing and well known. Nearly 2 in 3 black children grow up in homes without a fa ther present. One in thr ee Latino kids do We can thank the liberals and their 1960s w elfar e programs for many of these broken families. It was their War on Poverty that gave un married mothers nancial independence, made fathers superuous and undermined the for mation of twopar ent families. Fathers were let off the hook for their baby making and disappeared from family life. M others and gr andmothers raised the children. And when the father less boys grew up they did what childr en bor n into broken families often do. They went out and found their o wn substitute families on the streets. We call them gangs. And then as gang members they use guns to defend their street families from those who try to do them harm the same way wed defend our family members. The murderous vi olence in our cities is nev er going to end until someone stands up and wakes up America with a Put the father back in the family speech. Bill Cosby tried it and caught hell. Oth ers have caught hell for talking about the importance to children and society of intact families Its time for someone politically and culturally important like the president to make a big, brave speech and remind everyone in the country that families need fathers, and vice versa. The fatherless fam ily problem goes beyond the inner cities and it tr anscends r ace and ethnicity. We have a nation today where 20 to 30 million children go to bed each night without a father in the home. W e hav e a pop culture that constantly disrespects and mocks fathers. T r y to nd a popular TV show or a Disney movie where the fa ther is not laughed at or depicted as a bumbling fool. I ts not easy. Dishonoring our fathers and denying their impor tance to str ong families has to end. If we want America to sur vive, we need to put fathers back in the home wher e they belong.Michael Reagan is the son of President Ronald Rea gan, a political consultant, au thor and the founder of the email service reagan.com and president of The Rea gan Legacy Foundation.

DIES FROM PAGE A A 1college. I enjoyed the work. I reported on crime and daily happenings around town, doing multiple stor ies a day and often working late into the night and on w eekends in the bustling oil-boom town. I liked the y-bythe-seat-of-my-pants nature of report ing; the spontaneity and the fact that y ou didnt know what you were doing one day to the next. Above all, the news is a reactionary thing so much of the time While you can plan your stories all you want and mar k y our calendar, anything can happen at any time and you wont be prepared. Youll just have to pick up your pen and note pad and get going. That, along with the inv estigative and interviewing skills required, made reporting appeal to me and my inter est did not waver. But I wasnt happy. I had not been ther e terr ibly long in the grand scheme of things, really only a year, but sometimes you just need to pick up and go. Some times a place isnt r ight and y ou feel it in your bones and every inch of you. I was not happ y ther e and needed to make a change in my life. On that gray-skied wintry day in North Dakota, I decided to give my self a birthday present I would start making pr epar ations to move back to my homeland of Florida and seek new employ ment there, to begin my life ther e as it per haps always should hav e been. T wo months later, I did. I packed up ev er ything I owned in my small red PT Cruiser and left North Dakota on April 5. I drove for about nine hours that rst day, intent on making it out of the state, which I did. I slept in a small Minnesota town called Barnesville, and although it was a quaint little place, a sleepy town, I had not felt more alive in months. I felt awake and ready for adven ture. F or the next two weeks, my life went like this: Id wake up and drive. Id reach a new town or city, different states ev ery day. Sometimes I d stay with a fr iend, other times Id check into a hotel. It was a raw and exciting time of life and an exhilar ating tr ip. I saw big cities and wide open spaces of rural country. I visited Washington, D.C. and Chicago and Atlanta. As someone who had never gotten to travel much as a child, this was what I needed. Im also fairly sure no one has ever driven a PT Cruiser the way I did during those two weeks high-speed, careening across the country. I returned to Florida in late April and began freelancing there for some magazines It was a different kind of work, spending so much more time on each individual story, but interesting experience for someone so used to doing multiple shor t stor ies a day. What I really wanted was to return to the world of daily news reporting, which I now have done. Im grateful to be working with the News-Sun. As a side note, I love the drive down this way. This classic rural Flori da land is beautiful. If only it d stop raining so much, I think Id be in paradise. I grew up in Florida. I went to school in my hometown of Orlando and then got a degree in English and Jour nalism from Flagler C ollege in S t. Augustine. I am a writer by tr ade and enjo y doing it in my own time. I lo v e movies, books, music and politics. I also love going to the beach and slumming there like a bum for hours, lazing about in the water and peoplewatching. For now, I think Lake Jackson will do for that. Im eager to learn about the town and the people in it. Its good to be here. GR iI FF iI N FROM PAGE A A 1 Members of the Highlands County Sheris Oce process the crime scene where Dwayne Council was murdered in Nov. 2014.of Hal McRae Boulevard and Delaney Avenue in Avon Park. That s why I said if I ever see daylight, Id never mess with Molly again, Moses said. That s what caused it because (I) wasnt in a right state of mind. He told Smith that if there was any way he could talk to Coun cils family and make amends he would, but theres no way to do that. All they want is their son, Moses said. Assistant State Attor ney Steve Houchin said W ednesday that his ofce or iginally asked the gr and jur y for second-degree murder, but upon seeing the video asked the grand jury for a rst-degree charge, based on Mo ses saying he got the idea to shoot C ouncil when he, Council and a third friend stopped at a convenience store the night of the shooting. M y mind just clicked, Moses said in the video. Just do it. Just kill him. When pressed multiple times by Smith to giv e a r eason why he made that choice, Moses said that he couldnt come up with a reason for shooting a man he knew since childhood. It was a re action thing. I really can t tell you. If I could tell you, I would tell you, Moses said. To me, it aint nothing but the devil. M oses said the closest he could come to a r eason was that he was angry at another per son that night and the anger tr ansferr ed to Council. He told the detective he was nor mally giving and loving but wouldnt toler ate any disrespect. H e also told S mith that he may have had some alcohol that night and didnt fall asleep from that Friday night until the following Monday. M oses was or iginally arrested Dec. 13, 2013, on a charge of tampering with physical evidence for allegedly burning his clothes and hiding the gun used in the shooting a gun which belonged to Council and which Council had handed to him moments before the shooting, accord ing to arrest reports. C ouncil was found at approximately 4:30 / a.m. on N ov. 23 in the 200 block of East State Street. He was taken to a hospital but died of his injuries. Allegedly, Moses, Council and a third man drove to the area in a van to make a drug transaction. Moses and Council got out of the van and walked. Soon after, the third man heard shots. When he saw Mo ses the next day, Moses told him the deal w ent bad, people star ted shooting, he got one shot off at the others and both he and C ouncil ran in different directions, the afdavit stated. I n the r ecorded inter view, however, Smith told M oses deputies only found nine shell casings, all lined up in a row as if someone either advanced on or backed away fr om a target. On the video, he told the detective when he shoots, he makes sure hes aiming at the tar get and shoots multiple times, not giving a person a chance to r eco ver. Arr est afdavits said investigators learned Moses also went to a friends house after the shooting, out of br eath, acting ner vous, and burned his clothes while talking on a cell phone before leaving on foot. In the video, Moses said he had left his clothes with the fr iend, who he said promised to burn them for him. MO sesSES FROM PAGE A A 1My mind just clicked Just do it.

I was throwing one of my favorite top-water baits, a Silver Phenom Bass Assassin. Casting it out away from the shoreline, a good sized bass struck the uke with tremen dous power, coming out of the water on the str ike, only again to lose the sh in the heavy vegetation.

www.newssun.comFriday, July 18, 2014 | NEWSSS U nN | A9 condent wed nd any bass in the hot shallow water once the sun was up high. Around 9:30 / a.m., Trace had a good-sized boil when he lifted his Senko out of the water. Dropping the bait back into the same spot, we were sur prised when the bass didn t come back to hit it again. At 9:45 / a.m., Trace caught his rst bass of the day, a whopping 1 pounder. We continued to sh the reeded area, but the pick-ups were few and far-between. Moving to the south end of the lake, we pulled alongside a cou ple of reed islands and I was surpr ised ho w much shallower it was than the last time I shed the area. I like to sh reeds or pads in 3-5 of water, and these reeds were only in about 2 of wa ter, but I gured we might as w ell giv e them a try. Trace had a strike almost immediately, as did I, but w e both missed our sh. The bass seemed to be hitting light, often just picking up the tail-end of the wor m and stripping it off the hook. I switched to a Medlock Jig with a Sweet B eav er, pitching it fur ther back into the r eeds as Trace contin ued to ip the outside edge After almost an hour with nothing more than those rst couple of pick-ups, I was thinking about mo ving when I pitched my jig about 10 into the r eeds and the water just exploded. A huge bass grabbed the jig as it hit the water and before I could ev en engage my r eel, began peeling line off my reel so fast it was burning my thumb. Moving into the reeds another 8-10 feet, the bass stopped and I could feel that she had wrapped around the reeds. Slipping the electric motor into high speed, I started into the reeds when millions of blind mosquitos came out of no-where. Within seconds, these nuisance bugs were in my ears, mouth and eyes, literally blinding us from our destination. In all my years of shing, I dont ever re member the bugs being this thick. B ut w e persevered towards what I was certain was a real wallhanger, only to be disappointed again to nd the sh long gone O ne thing was cer tain, we had to get out onto the lake and r un the boat at a speed fast enough to get rid of these buggers. By this time they covered the entire boat, motor, seats and gear, not to mention our clothes. Minutes later we were ying down the lake watching the remaining ies hang on for dear life B y now it was fast approaching noon and w e had v ery little to show for ve hours of shing. Given the amount of rain wed had the previous couple of days; I decided to make a r un from the south end of the lake up to Josephine Creek. S haking off the r emaining blind mosquitos, I stood up and T r ace said my shorts were covered with dead bugs that Id apparently sat on. I knew my wife would lo ve that! The area I normally sh around Josephine was extremely shallow, so after a few casts, we motored over to the mouth of Arbuckle Creek. I was surprised to see the sand build-up at the opening into the lake. The water was black, but less than six inch es deep. I could tell ther e was deeper water just beyond the sand, but ther e was no way to get across and get up into the creek without crossing the shallow hump. We worked around to the side of the open ing where a patch of lily pads seemed to be the only obstacle to get into deeper water, but that proved to be a mistake. Within seconds we were stuck again in the middle of the pads, and again, the blind mosquitos were upon us. Almost as bad as earlier in the day, we fought our way clear and decided to call it a day. Not a great day on the water, but we caught a few. Trace is a good, knowledgeable sher man, and for a 16-year old, he s light years ahead of most sher men. H e admitted to me that bass were not his favorite sh, that bluegill and crappie were more fun, and a little easier to catch. On this day, he may have been right!Don Norton is a professional FISH FROM PAGE A A 7Golf Hammock Last Monday, July 14, the Mezza Group played Individual Pro-Am Points and saw J im G ulick win A group with a +1, followed by a tie between Pat Dell, Joe Martini and John McEachren at Even.

Then, he badly misjudged the speed of a long birdie try and three-putted for bogey. Two holes, 2 over. Even more disturbing was his shot from behind the fourth green after going long with a wedge. Woods used his putter from 30 feet away and came up 8 feet short. I hit that putt in practice rounds and I know its slower, Woods said. Its more lush over there. Theres more grain. Its thicker. I took that into account and still left it 8 feet short. But I buried that one, which was nice. Two putts seemed to make a difference in his round. That par putt on No. 4 kept him from going 3 over, and a 30-foot putt for birdie from just off the 11th green appeared to make him swing more freely. The next tee shot with a 3-wood was as good as any swing all day, and it set up a 6-iron into 6 feet for a second straight birdie. It also marked the rst time Woods was under par at a tournament since March 9 at Doral, the last one he played before back surgery. He followed that with a 6-iron that left him 7 feet away for birdie on the par-3 13th. After a bogey set up by a 3-wood into the left rough, Woods answered with a 7-iron on an aggressive line to 15 feet for birdie on the par-3 15th, and then a simple birdie on the par-5 16th. The 16th hole was the rst and only time he used driver all day. By pure numbers, Woods went 71 holes over eight years without using a driver in competition at Hoylake. The only driver he hit in 2006 when he won was on the 16th hole of the opening round. He put that in the adjacent 17th fairway. Royal Liverpool is greener and longer this year, and most players were using a few more drivers. The one driver he hit made Woods curse. He tugged it left and gured it was headed for a pot bunker. I wanted to start it in that rst bunker and hit a hard pull-cut, he said. And I hit more a pulled straight ball. I didnt think it was going to miss that bunker. He did, and then put his second shot just short of the green and in an easy spot to chip close for birdie. Woods was tempted to try to squeeze one more birdie out of his round. His second shot went into a pot bunker just left of the green on the par-5 18th. The lie was good, but the back lip of the bunker slightly restricted his swing. He blasted out to 15 feet and took two putts for par. I could have gotten a little more greedy, Woods said. But theres really no point. It was Thursday. As long as hes been away, Woods knows as well as anyone theres still a long way to go. TIGER FROM PAGE A7 JAY COHEN ASSOCIATED PRESS Sure, it was great for a couple days. The cheers for Derek Jeter. The power of Giancarlo Stanton. The excellence of Mike Trout in the American Leagues 5-3 victory. Baseballs All-Star party in the Twin Cities was a long series of smiles for players and fans. But the break is over now and the real fun begins Friday night. Heading into the second half of the season, there are all sorts of compelling stories from coast to coast. It could be one fun summer in California, where Oakland begins the weekend with the best record in the majors, and the Giants, Angels and Dodgers in prime playoff position. The trade deadline is in two weeks, and the recovery of several key injured players could dramatically affect a couple of divisions. The As bearded collection of shaggy mists and stars is looking for the franchises rst World Series title in 25 years. Sensing an opportunity, general manager Billy Beane got an early jump on the deadline when he acquired pitchers Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel in a deal with the Chicago Cubs on July 4. The blockbuster trade created an awkward scene at the All-Star game, where Samardzija was introduced with the NL reserves and then joined his new teammates in the AL dugout. Im really excited to just put all this to rest now and the sideshow thats happened right in the middle of all this, Samardzija said. It was a great opportunity to get to know these guys more. I ew out here with them. Im excited. There will be no such problem for any other players on the move this month. Boston pitcher Jake Peavy, Philadelphia second baseman Chase Utley, San Diego closer Huston Street and New York Mets right-hander Bartolo Colon are thought to be on the market as contenders shop for that missing piece that could pay off into October. I guess theres a possibility for anything, but at this point I love playing in Philadelphia, said Utley, who could veto any deal. Jeter was warmly greeted everywhere he went this week, and the Yankee captain contributed two hits to the AL All-Star win. Any chance of his nal season ending in the playoffs likely depends on the return of rookie ace Masahiro Tanaka, who is out with a partially torn ligament in his right elbow. He is going through a six-week rehab program but season-ending surgery is an option. The Bronx is one of many spots where health is an issue for the stretch run. The recovery of Reds sluggers Joey Votto (strained muscle above left knee) and Brandon Phillips (left thumb) and indispensable Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina (right thumb) could affect the bunched NL Central. The Pirates could get starting pitcher Gerrit Cole (tight lat muscle) in the rst few weeks after the break. We know what were capable of doing, and were going to play like weve been there before, like weve done it before, said slugger Andrew McCutchen, hoping to lead Pittsburgh back to the playoffs for the second straight year. Thats what weve got to look forward to. The strained right quadriceps of Torontos Edwin Encarnacion and ailing back of Detroits Victor Martinez also bears watching. Atlanta, which is battling Washington for the top spot in the NL East, could get a lift from the return of Evan Gattis after the catcher was sidelined by a bulging disk in his back. Beyond the standings, the races for the individual honors will come into focus. Trout could add the AL MVP award to his one from the All-Star game, especially if the Angels can run down the As in the competitive AL West. Shortstop Troy Tulowitzki is among the favorites for the NL award, but he could be hurt by the Rockies poor play.After All-Star party, baseball gets back to work d/ Ir'7> -OOO=I I I O OODOBD2 CK D M-BDBD3 LIV GA MortgageRate 4.25%PORCH 30 Year LoanPrinciple andInterest OnlyNo matter how you read thenews, we've got you coveredNEws-SuN and theNEws-Jou11
L IVING BFriday, July 18, 2014 Additional Upgrades to ConsiderHere are a few other simple, yet worthwhile, upgrades to improve the kitchen. Family Features Ever hear the saying Kitchens sell a home? Well its true; the kitchen is the most important room in the home. Whether youre considering putting your house on the market or investing in your home for personal long-term enjoyment, an upgraded and attractive kitchen can make your home irresistible. While a well-designed kitchen incorporates elements of luxury and style, its also important to focus on kitchen updates that will make everyday life easier so you can spend less time doing chores and more time making memories with the family. A simple way to give your kitchen an instant facelift is to replace old, outdated or mismatched appliances with newer models. They are not only aesthetically appealing but they can simplify the cooking and cleanup process. Here are some key points to consider when purchasing: Maintenance free stainless steel appliances When potential home buyers walk into a kitchen, the rst thing they will look for are updated and matching appliances. An appeal ing kitchen is one with a complete set of match ing appliances for a modern and inviting appearance. Many buyers love the look of stainless steel appliances but are reluctant to purchase because of ngerprints and watermarks. According to an EMA-NA Refrigeration Attitude & Usage Consumer Study 2011 conducted by Equation Research, 50 percent of consumers report a key pain point is their stainless steel refrigerators show nger prints. To alleviate that concern, look for new technologies that resist streaks and smudges. Maximizing time and space in the kitchenWhen trying to maximize space in your kitchen, built-in and counter depth appliances are the way to go. In fact, counter depth appliances, like refrigerators give you back over four inches of kitchen space. Built-in wall ovens and cooktops increase counter top space as well as cooking capacity, not to mention a sleek look ing kitchen and enter taining space. Consider the different types of cooktops available too gas, electric or induction. Induction cooktops are in high demand because they offer more precise and ef cient cook ing methods. The oven you select can also have a big impact on cut ting down cooking and prep time in the kitchen. According to the EMA-NA study, 67 per cent of consumers think their ovens take too long to preheat and 40 percent are dissatis ed because their food does not cook evenly. A new trend to help alleviate these concerns is a double wall oven, which provides the time saving bene t by cooking multiple dishes at once. Flexible storage options that can save you moneyWhen it comes to purchasing refrigerators and freezers, its important to nd something that allows for adjust able storage to meet personal, lifestyle needs. According to the 2013 Frigidaire Freezer Savings Study conducted by Phoenix Marketing International, approximately 60 percent of consumers indicate they dont have enough storage capacity in their refrigerators freezer, causing them to make multiple trips to the grocery store each week. Owning a secondary freezer allows you to make 1 1/2 less trips to the store each month and saves an average of 60 hours per year at the grocery store, according to Frigidaire research. Over all, those who own a secondary freezer say it allows them to stock up on family favorite foods, and the extra storage space lets them take advantage of sales and buying in bulk.PENDANT LIGHTING Add visual interest with a beautiful set of pendant lights. Ideally place them above a kitchen island so they dont interfere with foot traf c.HARDWARE This is also an easy x with a big payoff. Replace cabinet knobs and pulls with a fresh, modern set for a fast visual update and to help tie in the new appliances.KITCHEN FAUCET As one of the most-used items in the house, this xture has its fair share of wear and tear. Replacing the faucet is an easy and quick project that will make an impact. 'ROWA7T1f?11;GIVE YOUR KITCHENEasy Updates to IncreaseA FACE L I FT Your Home's Value& Save You Time'"'1Rr T "UIr-I
B2 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, July 18, 2014 www.newssun.com DEAR ABBY: For years, my wife and I were RV enthusiasts. We have a son who was envious about our lifestyle and expressed a desire to own an RV and travel the highways. When we decided to give up the practice, we gave our travel trailer to him as a gift. The trailer has been sitting on his property for more than a year now and has never been moved. He has kept the license and insurance fees current. He recently told us he has changed his mind and is no longer interested in traveling with it. He has offered it back to us. We have decided to sell it and wonder what, if any, moral obligation we have to share the proceeds of the sale with our son. Your thoughts? HOMEBOUND OUT WEST DEAR HOMEBOUND: You gave your son the RV as a gift; he is returning it to you instead of selling it himself. While I think it would be generous of you to split the proceeds with your son, I dont think there is any moral imper ative that you must. DEAR ABBY: My wife of 17 years just told me out of the blue that she doesnt love me anymore and hasnt for some time. To say that this came as a shock is an understatement. Because she has felt this way for some time now, she has hardly shed a tear. For me, my heart is broken. We made a pact years ago that if we ever fell out of love wed stay together for the kids until they were grown. Now I dont know if it was a lie or if shell keep her promise. I still love her and my heart breaks every time I think about it. Please tell me what to do. DEVASTATED IN ARIZ. DEAR DEVASTATED: I am sorry for the pain you are feeling. What you must do now is pull yourself together and find out from your wife when it was that the two of you stopped communicating honestly with each other because it seems your paths diverged some time ago. She owes you honest answers, and you need to hear them. After that, you may have to decide whether you still WANT her to honor that long-ago promise to stay together until your children are adults. You might find it helpful to stage some of these conversations in the office of a licensed marriage and family counselor. Having a mediator present could make it easier for both of you. Son decides life on the open road isnt for him DEAR ABBY Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Contact Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Solution on B6PUZZLE CORNER Sex Tape is a lump of halfcocked misunderstandings and nakedly affected zaniness. Theres not much to this pratfalling exercise in futility that we havent seen before except for a flash of Cameron Diazs bare rump. And that is hardly an experience worth 100 minutes of your one and only life. The film appears to have been written backward, title first, then a wet string of comic situations and one-liners, story last. Diaz and Jason Segel play Annie and Jay, college sweethearts in a monotonous marriage. She mommy-blogs, he is a music executive. Sensual ecstasy is a dim memory. To revive their relationship, she suggests starring in their own private porn video. Before you can say viral, their featurette migrates to a handful of matching iPads that Segel has given as gifts to friends, au to-synched to his ever-changing music collection. Aghast, the duo race to retrieve the devices before anyone has a chance to click Play. At this point we are forced to draw several conclusions. First, Annie and Jay must have attend ed Duh University. Second, Diaz, who turns 42 in August, is simply not credible as a woman 10 years out of college. Third, director Jake Kasdan has zero feel for the cadence and rhythm of sex farce. The scenes that should be steamy or silly are merely squirmy. The story proceeds as if it lost its driving directions. Annies blog is about to be purchased by a wholesome baby-products company. Since Annie has given the firms boss another of Jays linked iPads, the pair must fasttalk their way into his house and steal it back. The film becomes a caper comedy that does not caper comically. Rob Lowes appearance as Annies prospective boss adds a weird metatextual dimension. In 1988 Lowe was one of the first screen performers to be embar rassed by the release of a sex tape. He tried to spoof his badboy image at the next Oscars telecast by waltzing with an actress dressed as Walt Disneys wholesome Snow White, a stunt considered a historic PR misfire. Here he plays a squeaky-clean corporate honcho with a few kinky secrets and a fetish for Disney characters. This makes no less sense than the rest of the film. Diaz delivers a face-scrunching performance that would have the patrons of a dinner theater rattling their silverware in annoyance. Segel, whose comic chemistry with Amy Adams was enchanting in The Muppet Movie, seems adrift in these slackly staged proceedings, self-conscious and staring vacantly into the eyes of his leading lady. The dialogue (which he co-wrote) is a grab bag of balky phrases screaming to be polished into better jokes. Sex Tape apes its frustrated protagonists, limply yearning for thrills it cant achieve.A Sex Tape you dont want to watchBy COLIN COVERTSTAR TRIBUNE (MINNEAPOLIS)Movie ReviewCRITICS RATING AP PHOTOSAbove, This image released by Sony Pictures shows Rob Lowe, left, and Cameron Diazin a scene from Sex Tape.

Friday, July 18, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B3 www.newssun.com Dear Pharmacist: I read one of your previous articles about breast cancer and you talked about a pathway in the body that could be activated, and how certain natural supplements can help. Can you tell us which supplements? H.B., Bellevue, Washington Answer: Learning about the Quinone reductase pathway can help anyone, not just those worried about cancer. Its your bodys last chance to turn bad estrogens into good ones, thus reducing risk of cancer, especially those of the reproductive tract. Men and women need to pay attention today. I know what you are thinking, What the heck is quinone reductase and how will I get my doctor to agree to this? Well, let me start with the rst part of that ques tion. Quinone reductase is abbreviated in the medical community Nqo1. Lets just call it QR for simplicity. QR is just an enzyme that gives your body one last chance to turn bad estrogens into good ones. Basically, by activating QR, you give your body another opportunity to safely process (methylate) the bad estrogens and get rid of them from the body. If you learn this, you will outsmart your own doctor with this whole QR thing. I promise you, it is critical in terms of detoxifying your cells and helping to protect your cells, which lowers cancer risk. Youll be stunned at how easy it is. Here are a handful of the most powerful nutrients that are known to activate QR, and therefore, allow you another opportunity to reduce your risk for cancer. Please ask your doctor if these are right for you. EGCG Its one of the active ingredients in green tea. You can drink green tea or supplement. Resveratrol: Its a grape extract most famous for its role in heart disease. You want the trans resveratrol, not the cis. Resveratrol also lowers blood sugar which is considered beneficial, but it can catch you off guard and cause hypoglycemia. Gamma Tocotrienol Its part of vitamin E, when you buy mixed, natural vitamin E, you will be getting some of these healthy tocotrienols, but if you buy basic vitamin E (alpha tocopherol) you will not get this. Quercetin Found in apples and red onions, this is a citrus bioavonoid that is a powerful antioxidant and natural antihistamine. You can supplement too. Glutathione: You can take glutathione on its own but its sort of bulky and doesnt penetrate your cells unless you buy liposomal forms, or a special one called S-acetylglutathione made by Xymogen. Alpha or R Lipoic Acid: This antioxidant penetrates all organs of your body and is commonly used by naturopaths to protect nerves and improve neuropathy. Not only does it activate the QR pathway, but it improves blood sugar levels too. Sulforaphane This is the name of sulfur-containing compounds most often found in cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels sprouts. The highest content of sulforaphanes is found in broccoli sprouts. Eat them as often as possible, and consider supplementation.

This information is not intended to prevent, treat, diagnose or cure your condition.Cancer and your QR pathway Suzy CohenDEAR PHARMACIST Do you often feel confused by the multitude of sensational nutrition studies in the media? When it comes to feeding your family, being able to break down the scientic research process to make informed nutrition choices is essential. Conicting information Its only natural to wonder about nutrition studies mentioned in headlines. One moment a study recommends eating sh or butter and not long after that, another study contradicts the very thing we just added to our grocery cart. As consumers hungry for good health, its easy to get caught up in and sometimes discouraged by studies that promise the newest improveyour-health food, said Carolyn ONeil, a registered dietitian for Best Food Facts. Who among us doesnt want to feel and look better as a result of eating? With headlines promising miracle results, and then those promises dont work out, its easy to get discouraged. Understanding the process Rather that doubting yourself, ONeil advises to better understand the research process behind the headlines. The next time you read one that touts the next food trend, youll be able to decipher whether its a good option for your family. Just because you read it in the paper doesnt mean you should change your eating habits overnight, because thats not the way we in science typically operate, explained Dr. Michael Doyle, director of the Center for Food Safety at the University of Georgia. Steps for quality research These are the three main steps for conducting thorough research. Along with being peer reviewed and published, research that ts within these categories is recognized as the gold standard. 1. Transparency: Reliable research includes communication thats honest, open and easy to understand. 2. Reproducibility: Different scientic researchers participate in studies that come to the same conclusion. 3. Meta-Analysis: There is an ability to contrast and combine results from different studies to look for differ ences or agreement. If these three steps cannot be successfully completed, testing will continue until multiple scientists determine the same result. Unfortunately this kind of process promises no immediate results. This is yet another reason why its important to take those in-your-face nutritional studies with a grain of salt until further studies are completed. Further review Once a study successfully meets the steps of transparency and reproducibility, the research is turned over to scientists who were not involved in the initial research for an independent evaluation. These scientists perform a meta-analysis, contrasting and combining results from different studies and looking for differences or agreement. Only after going through this process can research be considered scientically veried. If you dont have time to dig deeper into the research, ONeil recommends visiting www. BestFoodFacts.org, a website featuring infor mation from more than 170 university-based food system experts with blogs, infographics and videos on all things food.Uncovering the truth behind nutritional studiesFAMILY FEATURES DANIEL LAFLOR/GETTY IMAGESWith so much conicting information, it can be hard to decipher the nutrition information on food labels. Scientists have linked a new protein to Alzheimers disease, different from the amyloid and tau that make up the sticky brain plaques and tangles long known to be its hallmarks. The discovery could give a new target for developing drugs and other treatments for Alzheimers, the most common form of dementia. It also might help explain why many people have plaques and tangles in their brain yet show no symptoms of the disease. Autopsies on 342 brains revealed that people who had the new protein were 10 times more likely to have been mentally impaired when they died than those without it. The study was discussed Wednesday at the Alzheimers Association International Conference in Copenhagen, where researchers also described a new type of brain imaging that can show tau tangles in living people for the rst time. For many years, the only sure way to diagnose Alzheimers disease was after death, when brains could be examined for amyloid and tau. Several companies now make imaging agents that can reveal amyloid on brain scans, and the new research shows an experimental product from Eli Lilly & Co. can do the same for tau. I think it will transform the eld because tau correlates better with symptoms than amyloid does, said Dr. Clifford Jack, a Mayo Clinic dementia expert with no role in that work. This is very important, agreed Laurie Ryan of the National Institute on Aging, which funded both studies. It should help diagnose Alzheimers and enroll people in studies testing treatments, she said. Researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital described the tau work. Scans on 56 older people believed to be cognitively normal showed that tau buildup in several brain regions correlated with memory decline. Dr. Keith Josephs of the Mayo Clinic led work on the new brain protein, called TDP-43. Everyone has it, but the abnormal form is found in different parts of the cell and in ball-like deposits in certain areas in the brain. Its already been linked to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrigs disease, and frontotemporal dementia. Researchers looked for it in brain samples from 342 people in a study of aging at Mayo. All had amyloid plaques in the brain but many showed no dementia symptoms before they died. Of the 342 participants, 195, or 57 percent, had the abnormal protein. Less than 5 percent of the healthy general population would be expected to have it. Of those with the protein, 98 percent had dementia symptoms at the time of their death, versus only 81 percent of those without the protein.New brain protein tied to Alzheimers diseaseBy MARILYNN MARCHIONEASSOCIATED PRESS MCT PHOTOLoretta Wales, left, shaves her husband, Alzheimers patient Richard Wales, at the Greengables Villa elderly care home in Union City, Calif.

In an earlier article, we discussed how Jesus taught his disciples to pray (Matthew 6:9-13). One way that He did this was by instructing them to pray to God the Father. Prayer, today, is no different. In prayer we, too, address the Father. However, it is difcult to talk to the Father if we are not rst one of His children. What does this mean? The Bible teaches we must become children of God if we want to successfully utilize the avenue of prayer. In other words, we must become Christians. Prayer is designed to be a part of the communication process between God and man, and an essential part of any prayer is the inter mediary, Jesus Christ. Last week, we talked about how we pray to the Father through Christ. If, however, Jesus is not present as our mediator, then our prayers cannot reach the Father. Thus, we rst must obey the biblical plan of salvation, having our sins washed away (Acts 22:16) by the blood of Christ, in order for Jesus to serve as the instrument that overcomes our sin and brings us back into a relationship with Almighty God. Once a person becomes a Christian and can biblically call God his Father, we must still answer the question, Will God answer any prayer that is offered? The simple answer to that question is, No. Now some might say, Kevin, that just does not sound right. They might even quote Matthew 7:7, 8. It reads, Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will nd; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks nds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Although these verses are certainly true, notice the attitude contained therein. We see one who is given what he needs because he earnestly desires to receive it. Now contrast that with what we nd in James 4:1-3. It reads, What is the source of quarrels and conicts among you? Is not the source your pleasures that wage war in your members? You lust and do not have; so you commit murder. You are envious and cannot obtain; so you ght and quarrel. You do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, so that you may spend it on your pleasures. Whether God gives us the things that we ask of Him has a lot to do with the attitude with which we ask Him for them. If our motives are not godly, then how can we expect God to answer us? If our prayers are not pure, then how can we expect the Father, who is pure, to respond to them? We simply cannot go to God in prayer with selsh or sinful motives and then expect Him to deliver what we want. God provides for His children by giving them the things that they need. Many of these provisions are given as the answers to prayers. Prayer is a powerful tool when used proper ly. Understanding it is essential toward living a life that is pleasing to God and lled with His blessings. So, get right with God today. Listen to Him through the Bible, obey it, and start talking to Him through prayer!

All members and their guests are invited. Meat and drinks will be supplied by the Bishopric and members are asked to bring a vegetable dish. Pioneer Day is an annual event held in commemoration of the courageous Mormon pioneers who ed to the great Salt Lake Valley to escape religious persecution. Through extreme hardship, the rst group arrived in the area in July 21-24, 1847. This group led the way to colonization of the western frontier. S NAPSHOTS LOCA L RE L IGION N EWS PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) A Catholic organization has decided to cut off long-standing funding to a Portland immigrant rights group that works with day laborers over its afliation with an organization that supports same-sex marriage. Voz Workers Rights Education lost a $75,000 grant in June from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development, which is the national anti-poverty, social justice program of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. Catholic Campaign director Ralph McCloud said the group asked Voz to cut ties with the National Council of La Raza, a large Latino civil rights organization that endorses marriage equality, to be considered for the grant. Voz has been an afliate of NCLR since 2009, primarily as a grantee. After Voz refused to cut its ties, the organization self-disqualied itself from the funding process, McCloud said. In June, the bishops approved more than $14 million in grants to 205 organizations. The bishops had supported Voz since 1994, via 10 grants, McCloud said. Its certainly difcult and painful, because Voz has done some tremendous work, McCloud said. But it became obvious that they were assisting in something that was contrary to the teachings of our traditions. And we have to honor our donors intent that this money be spent on issues that are not contrary to the teachings of the Catholic Church. Voz is not the rst nonprot to lose church funding because of ties to organizations that endorse same-sex marriage. A coalition of conser vative Catholic groups led by the American Life League has criticized what it sees as lax administration by the Catholic Campaign and has been working since 2009 to call attention to CCHD grantees with activities, positions or afliations with other nonprots that contradict Church teachings on abortion, contraception and gay rights.
