After being diagnosed with lung cancer in 2004, Thompson was for tunate enough to successfully over come it. I hav e been extremely blessed, said Thompson, and now its my turn to give back. Cancer has really hit home for Thompson. Not only was she diag nosed, but her father, br other and sister hav e been affected by various types of cancer. I r eally wanted this money to go to research specically because we need to nd cur es for these things and I wanted to help in that, said Thompson. It was nearly a year and a half ago that Thompson began rais ing money by starting what she called a cancer table at the Sebring AMVETS Post. The AMVET S host a sort of yard sale type event at their home and sell things in hopes of raising money for their non-prot orga nization, explained Thompson s husband, Bill. This organization was started to provide help and fellowship for veterans in need. Both Thompsons are involved with the AM VETS Post 21 in Sebring. The men of AMVET S have been very suppor tiv e. They all help out and have donated to what I am doing, Diane Thompson said. I wanted to keep pushing to reach my goal of $1,000 because I knew the end result would benet everyone through research. This is the rst time Thompson has done anything through the American Cancer Soci ety, which she claims a lot of her help and support through the process to her sister. K aren is a troop er and has really done so much for me and with this , explained Thompson. Shes a ghter! Another aspect of Thompsons jour ney have been prayer br acelets that she has been given by friends. It seems like if its not one thing its another thats going wr ong, but once I hav e healed from crisis, I pass the bracelet on to someone else in need so that it may bless and help them as well, said Thompson. This is my way of passing it for ward. W ednesday mor ning, after her long year and a half of work, Diane Thompson, along with AMVETS Commander Smith, AMVETS mem bers and representatives from the Amer ican Cancer Society w er e able to come together and celebrate the har d wor k and money Thompson put into her project.

www.newssun.comFriday, August 8, 2014 | NEWSSS U nN | A5 NEWS-SSUnN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927Romona Washington Publisher Scott Dressel Editor VIEWPOINTS ANOTHER VIEW Y OO UR VIEWS When a texting ban was passed and signed into law in 2013, few proponents and there were many expected the impact to be dramatic. The law was something that need ed to be done. More and more studies had highlighted the dangers of driving while texting. The comparison to dr unken dr iving was becoming strik ing. Smartphone use was taking off, especially among the y ounger demogr aphic. And most other states already had r esponded with specic laws But the strange mix of corporate lobbying, libertarian philosophy and a concentration of power in party lead ership had doomed previous initia tives in the state Legislature. So when a bill nally passed, ther e was r eason for congratulations, tempered by the realization that the new law was rela tively weak. P r oponents both inside and outside Tallahassee understood this was likely a rst step in a graduated approach to cracking down on a dangerous behav ior. Apparently, that is the case. R ecently a document review conducted by the Tampa Bay Times found law enfor cement ofcers ar e not en forcing the law aggressively. The T imes study found fewer than 1,800 texting citations were likely to be handed out in the rst year of the laws implementation. (As the Times also reported, a federal study recently noted it was likely some 660,000 driv ers were using cellphones during any giv en daylight hour .) By comparison, some 3,045 drivers were cited statewide last year for fail ure to dim vehicle lights. The new law makes the act of typ ing a text message into a smartphone while dr iving a secondar y offense, which means ofcers need another reason to pull someone over rst. First-time offenders can be ned $30, plus myriad court costs, which run the bill higher than $100. The rst offense is a nonmoving violation, so no points are added to the license. The second offense is tougher: a $60 ne and three points on the license. Then comes the dilution. The text-ban allows drivers to check maps or listen to music on a cell phone. Drivers can text while stopped at a red light. Another pr ovision per mits prosecutors to use cellphone re cords only in the event of a crash re sulting in death or personal injury. All in all, as state S en. M aria Sachs, D-Delray Beach, told the Times, Un less you say, Yes, I was texting, its ver y difcult to prove. Its a bill that bans it in name only. For the next step, we hope police agencies will consider publicity cam paigns and sweeps, as they now do with seat belt use As also happened with seat belts, we expect the laws to be strengthened as years go by. This is a safety measure. If it proves ineffec tive, well need something stronger.An editorial from the Charlotte Sun.Glen Nickerson President JOIN TT HE C OO N vV ER S aA TIO NLetters to the editor should be 250 words or less.

However, it was not until 1971 that the United States C ongr ess designated Aug. 26 of each year as Womens Equality Day as the result of legislation brought forth by Representative Bella Abzug of New York. Since 1971, every sitting United States President has issued a proclamation in honor of this historic event. I hope everyone will take time to celebrate this mo mentous occasion.

Waste from chicken farms has rendered ocean off the East C oast unt for shing. Waste from Midwest cattle ranches carried by Mississippi River has created a per manent dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico larger than that of the infamous 2010 BP oil spill. Animal agriculture dumps more pollution to our water ways than all other human activities combined. P r incipal pollutants are animal manure, fertilizers, as well as soil par ticles organic debris, and pesticides from feed cropland. Manure and fertilizers pr omote gr owth of toxic algae that poison drinking water supplies. Organic matter feeds micr oor ganisms that deplete oxygen and kill sh. Effective regulations to limit dumping of animal waste into water supplies hav e been blocked by the meat industry. Fortunately, every one of us has the power to stop this outrage three times a day by saying no to polluting meat and dairy products. Our lo cal supermarket offers ample alternatives.

F irst r eleased in the U.K. in 2006 and the U.S. in 2007, the book is lled with useful information on how to make knots in a r ope build a go-kart or treehouse, create a working bow and arrow, and engineer a pr oper water bomb The book is also lled with stories of famous historical battles, infor mation about dinosaurs the moon and the Declaration of Independence, and other interesting tidbits, such as how to play marbles and chess make invisible ink and create spy codes. The book has sold well in both the U.K. and the U.S. for a variety of reasons most of all because it celebrates boyhood and couldn t care less about being politically correct. It celebrates the fact that bo ys unlike girls, gener ally like to go out in the mud and play build things with their o wn hands and allow nature to unleash their imagination and all v e of their senses I think weve come through the period when we said boys and girls were exactly the same, because theyre not, author Conn I ggulden told The Associated Press. Boys and girls have different interests, different ways of lear ning, and ther es no real problem in writing a book that plays to that, and says let s celebrate it. Lets go for a book that will appeal to boys. Hear, hear! to that. We have in our population too many males, now in their 20s or 30s, who were not permitted to be boys this way when they were lads. Such young men were persuad ed to shun the ways of their fathers and grandfathers men who w er e short on words and long on action, and never fretted over feelings, roughage or good prostate health. But in the past three decades, the traditional American male has been under attack. He has been called closed-minded, archaic and sexist. Thus, modern boys are pressured to show their feelings. Today, the landscape is polluted with sensitiv e New Age 20and 30-yearolds. Touchy-feely fellows with soft voic es and caring eyes. F ello ws who mist up at bridal showers and clap heartily the rst time their sons use the commode for No. 2. Its not their fault entirely. Many of them were forbidden to go out side to play, learn, invent and discover. They were held captive inside their homes, where they got fat off of snack foods as they play ed on computers under the careful watch of adults. Its not their fault they were given unusual, soft names intended to celebrate their specialness. One is hard-pressed to nd a T om, Mike, Jim or Joe under 40 these days. Its not their fault some had moms who dressed them up in color-coordinated knickers, suspenders and saddle shoes and dads afr aid to say what ev ery good father must say in such a situation: No son of mine is going to w ear any damn knickers! B ut we can correct these wrongs. We can start by encour aging boys to do boy things as bo ys hav e done through summer months ever since boys have existed. H er es a good start: Let nature unleash their imagination and senses this summer. When boys are free to catch craysh, build ramps to jump their bikes and conduct any of dozens of other enjoyable activi ties outlined in The Dangerous B ook for B oys, they will blossom into ne young men who will not attend bridal or baby showers and will leave it to others to clap when Junior succeeds on the commode. Incidentally, you can unleash the imagination and senses of girls, too. That is accomplished in Igguldens equally robust volume, The Dangerous Book for Girls.Tom Purcell, author of Misadventures of a 1970s Childhood and Comical Sense: A Lone Humorist Takes on a World Gone Nutty! is a Pittsburgh Tribune-Re view humor columnist..

The Highlands County K-9 unit also will be there for an ex hibition. Ofcials of the HCSO said ho w much the dogs will be able to perform would be dependent on space availability and weather conditions. Created in 1944 in a collaboration of the United States For est Service, in conjunction with the Advertising Council, S mokey was intr oduced via a poster by ar tist Rudolph Wendelin. S ix y ears later, a bear cub that had sur vived the Los Tablos blaze in the Lincoln National Forest outside the village of C aptain, N.M., was dubbed Smokey. His burns were tended to overnight at the nearby Flate ly Ranch, then he was o wn b y Game War den Ray Bell to the v eter inary hospital in Santa Fe. Upon S mokey s recovery, the Forest Service had him own to Washington D.C.where he was giv en a per manent home at the National Zoo. The popular ity of the campaign grew so great after the inclusion of Smokey that in 1952 C ongr ess passed into law a bill governing the commercialization of the name and image of S mokey Bear. It was about this time that, due to the vast amount of mail he was receiving, Smokey was given his own zip code.

Carl Cool, a former county administrator and currently a principal in Cool & Cobb En gineering, made the presentation to council members outlining plans to locate an RV sales and ser vice oper ation in the front of the 80 acres lo cated on Highway 27 south of S kipper R oad and an upscale RV park in back. This would be a high-end RV park, said Cool. This would not be a mobile home subdivision. The developers would continue to own the property and it would be tax able. The concept would include both r ecreational vehicles and park model homes at the site, which could accommodate as many as 300 units. Cool said they had not tried to maximize the property, but had created it with fewer lots and more green space, saying Camper Corral owner Anthony Cozier found the re laxed design more sustainable. Once pr oposed under the name Tuscany Village, the 80-acre site originally had been zoned for villas and townhouses with a commer cial center. C ool said the landowners later lost the property to the bank and his client had picked up an option on it. Like the Tuscany Village pro posal, Cool said the Camper C orr al design also called for a commercial hub for park resi dents and others. Plans are to locate a bank, a dr ug stor e, sa lon and a pub at the site, although no specic vendors hav e been identied to this point. This fella owns Camp Flor ida doesnt he? asked Council P r esident John Grifn. I think he has some experience with this. Although council members assured Cool that municipal water would be readily avail able, it appeared that sewer service would be the major challenge C ool indicated plans are cur rently being developed to provide for a solution. Ther e was no indication when the issue would come back before the council. Camper Corral has been a xture just south of Avon Park for many years, but a re last year wiped out the showroom. Lightning was blamed for the blaze, which required around 40 reghters to ex tinguish and closed U.S. 27 for sever al hours.

After Schrader spoke, deputies Steve Wor ley and Corey Tomblin took the stage to talk about their K-9 dogs Ozzie and Remco. They do a thankful job, Tanglewood resident Peggy Gransad said.

In this latest case, cameras recorded Ramero arriving after the business closed, removing several bags fr om the donation dr op-off area and putting them in a van, according to police reports. The cameras recorded her trying to remove a larger item, but when she couldnt lift it, she left, reports said. Police claim that when they con tacted Ramero, they got her to admit to the theft. S ubsequent char ges are pending against Ramero, based on Troutmans research. I strongly believe in what NuHope stands for, Fansler said in a released statement. I hate to see people steal from an organization that relies on donations to assist the elderly; those who need the most help. We have made it very clear: Steal from Nu-Hope; go to jail.

She told the group al though Jackson could not attend he was doing great and regretted his inability to attend the session. B ecause ther e were only two candidates challengers Char lene Edwards and Al J oe H inson Pastor George Hall was able to ask a number of additional questions that w er e not posed the previous week when the ve District 5 candidates participated in a for um. Again, the questions were more spiritual in nature, with the leadoff poser inquiring candidates about their denomination and current church attendance. E dwar ds said she is a long-time Luther an and currently attends Resurrection Lutheran Church in Avon P ar k. Hinson said he is a member at St. Mar tin Missionary Baptist Chur ch. We are not a member of a church, but our faith r uns v ery, very deep, Amy Jackson told the group assembled in the sanctuary. B oth H inson and Edwards agreed that the nation was founded on B iblical values and morals, with Hinson citing the In God We Trust motto on U.S. currency. They also agreed that there should be prayer in schools as well as at school-sponsored ac tivities. Edwards allowed that the policy might have to be enlar ged as society changes. There need to be choices for those who worship other gods, she said. When it came to the idea of the systems zero-tolerance poli cies, neither candidate looked fav or ably on the idea of absolutes. These are kids we are dealing with, said Hinson, who indicated punishments at times might be higher than they should be. Both also offered support to the pro posed half-cent school tax being oated as a v oter referendum in the November general election. I absolutely support it, Edwards said. M orally and ethically, we are responsible for good schools and the health and safety of students. They both agreed that if the tax should fail, as it has in the past, additional mon ey would somehow hav e to be gener ated or have current funds diverted from other areas, while projects probably would decrease due to lack of funds While neither of the candidates were rm supporters of Common Core standards, they noted curr ently they are the law. Hin son said ultimately the po w er in the classroom would come from the teacher while Edwards worried that the standards would lead to mor e feder ally sponsored rules and regulations for local systems. S he r eiterated that theme when asked about the level of power exercised by the state o v er schools. I dont think its the state; its national that has too much control, she said. When asked who would prot most from Common Core, Hin son pointed to book makers and those who br ing in the standards. Edwards charged large corporations and companies developing the curr iculum would be the beneciaries. The two joined in their disagreement over teacher assessments and the notion that compensation be tied to student per for mance. E dwar ds said each classroom has differ ing levels of student per for mance. Hinson opined that assessing teachers could be performed in a short amount of time simply through class room visits. P ar ental choice was another area of agree ment, with both indicating that citizens should have their choice of pr iv ate, faith based, char ter schools and even home schooling as an alter native to the public school system. The use of v ouchers was not as clear cut, with H inson say ing it was acceptable as long as it is fair and available to every body. Ther e needs to be a lot more discussion on that, said Edwards, who worried that vouchers could siphon off money from public institutions and leave them with lower per forming students and those with disabilities The nal question of the evening came on the most press ing concern of local schools H inson said it was lack of time for teacher development while Edwards talked about budget issues, how to work with F lor ida State Standards and how to strengthen family engagement in the school system.

A8 | NEWSSS U nN | Friday, August 8, 2014 SPORTsS This has been a tough couple of months for shing, at least for me. Between the daily rain showers and the constant heat, many shermen have elected to stay home. But for those of us willing to dodge the showers and hot weather, the bass have still been willing to bite. With summer com ing to an end in a few w eeks and kids alr eady thinking about returning to school, its a gr eat time to take them out for a few hours of shing and get them away from all the electronics kids are into n o w. Anyone who has been shing for the last 60 days knows that at rst light, around 6:15 / a.m., the w eather is pretty much perfect. And it typically stays that way until around 9 or 10. By then, the weather turns hot and the rains are often on the hori zon. F or kids two to three hours is usually plenty of time on the water, and early morning is a gr eat time to sh for bluegills and shellcrackers. M ost of the lakes have a healthy population of both and kids lo v e to catch them. Crickets and worms are often the best choice of baits, typically on a bare hook with split shot and a bobber This time of the y ear these feisty pansh can generally be found in 3-10 feet of water, often near or just above sub merged weed beds. I gener ally star t in the shallower areas of the lake rst, just as the sun is coming up and continue working out into deeper areas as the sun rises. But bluegill can usu ally be caught all day long, and if y ou can nd a school of them, the action can be nonstop. Of course, anytime you sh for bluegills, theres always a chance a hungry bass or crappie will take the bait as w ell. I had a guide tr ip the other day with two brothers, Philip and Brad Devon, and Devons grandson Derek. P hilip liv es in Sebring, but Brad and D er ek were here on vacation from New York. I t s been my experience, raising two kids of my o wn and now with three grand children who call me gr amps most kids have the attention span of a gnat. So when it comes to shing, if you want to keep them engaged, they need to be see ing some action pretty quickly B ut Derek surprised me. He was in the front of the boat with me and for the better part of a couple hours, he hung right in there. Catching his rst bass after an hour or so helped, but most kids dont have the patience to stay with it for much longer. It didnt take too long before he caught his second, then his third bass, and before long he was moving from front to back in the boat looking for the best spot to cast. Around 9:30 / a.m. w e noticed some school ing bass chasing baitsh near the boat and for the next couple of hours w e chased school after school, often hooking up on more than one sh out Take a kid fishing Courtesy photoDerek Devon holds up his rst catch of the day on his trip with Don.

Heavy humidity and 90+ degree temper atures can certainly shed some pounds and whip play ers into game shape in a hurry. But with full pads and the maximum effort being put forth, it can also put play ers and coaches on high alert for the dangers that come with it. As a way to lessen the wear and tear on play ers as well as avoiding the seemingly daily afternoon thunderstorms, the Sebring football team, for one has been taking to the eld in the early morning hours. W ith the sun just cresting over the east ern horizon, and temperatures still in the compar ativ ely cool 70s, Blue Streak play ers are taking to Firemens Field and getting their wor k in befor e the mercury gets too high. Weve done it a few times before, but this year weve done it all this rst week, head coach LaVaar Scott said. The heat is one thing, but with it raining every day, we just want to get the kids on the eld. O therwise we would be missing out on practices.

I was surprised at the size of the schooling bass. Usually you see a lot of 12-14 bass in these large schools, but we noticed one school in particular that came crashing up almost beside the boat where it appeared the sh were much larger. A couple of casts into the school produced a nice three-pounder for Derek and I think that one made his day. Fishing tournaments and taking folks out on guide trips, I sometimes forget what its like to take young kids shing. Its fun and gratifying to watch one of my clients latch onto and catch a big bass, but watching a kid reel in his rst bass brings back many fond memories. So, with only weeks before school starts, take a kid shing. Leave the i-phones, i-pads and laptops behind and let a kid see what its like to spend some quality time on the water. Recent trips In the last four or ve weeks Ive been to a half dozen lakes and I have to admit, for some reason, the bass shing seems to be tougher this year. Were catching sh, some in the 5and 6-pound range, but compared to last year, I havent done nearly as well. On Lake Damon we caught lots of 1and 2-pound bass from early morning till noon on black Zoom Trick worms, and on Lake Olivia, a few days later; we struggled to catch three bass in what looked like perfect water. Lake Istokpoga proved to be one of the best trips producing a couple of 5 pounders and one topping out over six, but even there, the bass just werent hitting like they were last year. We did pretty well on Lake Glenada ipping the reeds, although our two biggest sh were caught on a Bass Assassin Silver Phenom and a Zoom Horny Toad. Last year the bass were in the reeds this time of year, but we shed around the entire lake and only had two hits in the reeds. Lake Walk-in-Water was probably the biggest disappointment. I still remember the incredible shing on this lake back in the late 90s and early 2000s. It was probably one of the hottest lakes in the country until the hurricanes of wiped out all the hydrilla. The lake is as high as Ive ever seen it, although like Lake Istokpoga, there was no hydrilla to be found. We caught a few bass but it was tough shing. Lake June proved to be the best trip, catching a dozen or so quality sh. Most were in the 8-10 water, just above the grass. Deep-diving crankbaits were the ticket. My favorite, a crankbait that dives 14-18 ran too deep, snagging up in the vegetation, but the smaller lipped cranks that got down to 10 were just what the sh were looking for. Most of the sh were in the 3-4 pound range nice quality sh. For those of you who responded to my Day On The Lake column, Ill be inviting someone to join me in the next week or so. My hope is to get to everyone who responded, but it may take some time.Don Norton is a professional FISH FROM PAGE A8 Courtesy photoGri n Chynoweth swimming in the 100-meter freestyle at the Florida Age Group Swimming Championships in Gainesville. SWIM FROM PAGE A8 SPECIAL TO THE NEWS-SUN SEBRING This Saturday night, 24 amateur ghters will be squaring off in 11 Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and one kick boxing match at Swamp Brawl II. Some of ghters will be making their debut, some may have 10 or more amateur ghts under their belt. Amateur ghts have mostly the same rules as the professional ghts, with some subtle changes for safety that most may not even notice. One of the coordinators of the event, Steve Weed, owner and trainer at the Universal Center of Natural Martial Arts in Sebring, explained some of the things that are banned at the amateur level. Weed has extensive experience in the MMA as he used to ght over 30 years ago when there were basically no rules. According to Weed, the rules differ whether they are in a striking (standing) position or on the ground and on how many of cial amateur ghts they have had. In the striking position, they are allowed to kick or punch anywhere from the feet up, Weed said. Knees are only allowed to the body and elbows are not allowed at all. That goes even if you have more than three ghts. Weed noted that the biggest difference was when the ght goes to the ground. No elbows allowed on the ground, he said. Three ghts and under, they are allowed to knee to the body, punch to the body, all that to the body on the ground. You cannot hit to the head at all. After three ghts, you can now punch in the face on the ground, a lot of ground and pound, Weed continued. Again there are no elbows and knees are allowed to the body, but not the head. Even in the professional ghts, there are no knees to the head on the ground. The other difference is that neck cranks are not allowed. A ghter can put another ghter in a headlock, but they cannot pull the head forward or backward and they cannot move the head side to side. Necks cranks destroy the vertebrae in the neck and can hurt the individual really bad, said Weed. MMA has come a long way since Weed fought all those years ago. Back when I fought, you fought anything, said Weed. Back then they did not have a lot of regulations. There were only three weight classes, lightweight, middleweight and heavyweight. There werent any rounds, you fought until someone won. Weed also noted that the major difference is the competition level and how you have to train for pro. Everything is a lot harder, he said. I get a lot of people that think they want to go pro, but to stick it out and do all the tough work is more than most anticipate. Actually, the ght itself is easy compared to preparing for it. It is a seven day a week regimen for 3 months to prepare for a ght. On Saturday, Aug. 9, at 7 p.m. at the Highlands Today Center, 24 people will ght. All will have thoughts of going professional before Saturday, not as many on Sunday. These ghts are not street ghts brought inside, they are sanctioned by the International Sports Combat Federation and will have judges and referees. If the excitement and action is half of what it was in last years Swamp Brawl it should be an entertaining night, plus six local ghters are participating for the home crowd to root for.Weed gives inside look at MMA as Swamp Brawl II looms I`' .nBEev,BEEP .:BEEBEEpI sBEEP!AWAITS!C l assifieds!SI ^ 00000000000BD2 CK D M-BDBD3 LIV GAPORCHELI


Family Features Despite having hundreds of options to choose from, nding the right bra in the right t, style and color is a task many women dread. However, getting smart about how to choose the best bra for your unique shape and needs will ease your mind, so your only worry is nding the perfect outt to wear with it. Comfort is keyEnsuring youve found the right size bra means little if it doesnt feel good. In fact, womens No. 1 complaint when shopping for a bra is nding a size that is comfortable. Innovation may not be the rst thing that comes to mind when you think of bras, but a quick visit to the lingerie department of any re tailer demonstrates todays selections are a far cry from undergarments of decades past. New developments in bras especially the emerg ing use of seamless knit technology and exible fabrics and components give much greater attention to comfort in t, while also delivering sup port and style. Many popular brands have introduced exible t bra lines using seamless construc tion and advanced components such as straps, cups and bands that feel customized to the wearer. The exibility of these bras has led some bra brands to replace the traditional cup-and-band sizing system with a simplied alpha Smart Size system. Similar to sports bra sizing, this sizing system makes it easy to nd the right bra quickly. The brands say that 10 simpli ed seamless, shape-tot Smart Sizes ranging from XS to 5X are equiva lent to more than 30 cup-and-band sizes ranging from 30A to 52DD. Smart Sizes revolutionizes how women t and buy their bras, said Sandy Waitz, vice president of intimate apparel design and devel opment for HanesBrands, one of the largest intimate apparel companies in the world. With the exible t properties of Smart Sizes, women can nd a bra that literally molds to their individual shape, including unique t challenges such as between sizes and unevenly sized breasts. Popular bra brands like Bali, Hanes, Playtex, Barely There and Just My Size all offer bras with Smart Sizes. Size it upFor years, experts have lamented that the majority of women are wearing the wrong size bra. The complexity and limits of traditional cupand-band sizes can exacerbate nding the right t. Here are indicators of a problem t: If the cup is not lled out, or it wrinkles, a smaller cup or a contour cup may be needed. If esh overows, a larger cup or a fuller cut style may provide a better t. The band should be snug to the chest; if it rides up, it is too loose or the wrong size. If the straps dig into your shoulders, you need a more supportive cup and frame. Your straps should not be doing any of the lifting.

B2 | NEWS-SUN | Friday, August 8, 2014 DEAR ABBY: I have a friend who will help herself to anything in my fridge, pantry, etc. without asking. She also will eat most if not all food thats meant to be shared, such as appetizers and snacks at a social gathering. Once she literally polished off an entire plate of appetizers before my guests arrived and I had nothing to feed them. After she finishes the food, she often says, Oh, I was starving! I find myself hiding food from her when she comes over, or delaying putting treats out for guests until later in the party. The most recent episode was when I was preparing food for my toddler. While it was cooling on the counter, she helped herself to all of it. She told me afterward she had consumed it. So you see -nothing is safe, not even a childs meal. Abby, how can I tell her what shes doing is wrong and rude? STUMPED IN STUDIO CITY, CALIF. DEAR STUMPED: Your friend may be a compulsive eater, but thats no excuse for what she has been doing. Tell her in plain English that you dont like it when she helps herself to food without first asking, or hogging it when it has been prepared for a party. Taking something that was meant for your toddler was over the top. Say that if shes feeling starved when shes headed for your house, she should have a snack to take the edge off before arriving. And if you see less of her because of your frankness, consider yourself lucky. DEAR ABBY: My husband and I and our toddler son were recently out to dinner. A woman walked past our table to the family next to us and gushed about how beautiful the couples daughter was. Their child was the same age as our son, who is just as well-behaved. I found it hurtful that a stranger would compliment one child and ignore the family seated at the next table. My husband disagrees. Am I wrong to be offended? Do you think this was rude? FURIOUS IN FLORIDA DEAR FURIOUS: I agree with your husband. I doubt the woman deliberately meant to slight your son. All her attention was simply focused on the little girl.Woman treats friends kitchen like an all-you-can eat buffet DEAR ABBY Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Solution on B6PUZZLE CORNER LOS ANGELES (AP) Rebooting the popular franchise after Paramount acquired the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle rights, producer Michael Bay and director Jonathan Liebesman have taken on a full recap of the turtles origin story and their epic conict with the dastardly Foot Clan crime syndicate. As a late-summer entry arriving just before the school year begins, Turtles could see some moderately enthusiastic if somewhat unpredictable response from the lms target audience, since many of the series fans may have already moved on in the seven years since the last outing. The newest addition to the series opens with New York City lifestyle TV reporter April ONeil (Megan Fox) looking to get a lead on some hard news, but her boss Bernadette (Whoopi Goldberg) couldnt be less interested and even her regular cameraman Vern (Will Arnett) isnt sure she has what it takes to report on the crime wave sweeping the city, as the notorious Foot Clan terrorizes New York residents. When April witnesses a stealth vigilante attacking Clan goons one dark night, she stumbles upon the story of her career, tracking down a quartet of six-foot-tall, mutated talking tur tles with lethal ninja ghting skills. Named after four Renaissance artists, teenaged Raphael (Alan Ritchson), Michelangelo (Noel Fisher), Leonardo (Pete Ploszek) and Donatello (Jeremy Howard) make their home in the citys sewer system with the sagacious rat known as Splinter (Danny Woodburn), who has trained them in the skills of ninjitsu, making them martial arts experts. Technically still in training, the turtles are unprepared to take on the Foot Clan ghters and their fearsome leader Shredder, but their interference with his criminal network has made them targets. Meanwhile, April turns to billionaire industrialist and old family friend Eric Sacks (William Fichtner) for assistance decipher ing the turtles origins, unsuspecting of his secret alliance with Shredder. When the turtles and Splinter take her into their condence, she discovers Shredders plan to subjugate New York and the key role the turtles may play in defeating the dreaded Foot Clan, if they can only manage to over come their petty rivalries and work together. Screenwriters Josh Appelbaum, Andre Nemec and Evan Daugherty devote a substantial amount of time setting up Aprils investigation of the mystery vigilantes, which provokes a frustrating delay before the turtles nally appear onscreen. Extensive use of ashbacks and explanatory dialogue that reveal her lifelong connection with the mutants also have a dilatory effect (while laying groundwork for future sequels), but provide an authentic account of the turtles origins while keeping the humor pitched at an appropriately juvenile level. Not much of that easygoing style rubs off on the human characters, however, as Fox spends much of the movie acting bewildered as April tries to keep up with rapidly shifting plot developments and Fichtner delivers a generically styled, simplistically motivated baddie. Arnett has the only role that comes close to matching the turtles verve, but doesnt get enough time onscreen to create a lasting impression. The cast members portraying Splinter and the turtles achieve a persuasive level of realism that was never possible with the elaborate puppetry required for the original lm series and adequately fulll expectations for their characters. Liebesman relies on his genrelm resume to keep events moving at a brisk clip and the motion-capture process employed to facilitate live-action integration with cutting-edge VFX looks superior onscreen, sharply and smoothly rendering some thrilling action scenes and delivering impactful 3D character detail. However, the drawn-out 101-minute running time and the nonstop cartoonish violence may deter some would-be fans, or perhaps the adults who pay for their movie tickets.Made over Turtles return in rebootBy JUSTIN LOVE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER Michelangelo from Paramount Pictures Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Friday, August 8, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B3 Dear Pharmacist: I have high blood pressure and my doctor recommended a diuretic and another medicine to relax my blood vessels. Do you think I should take it? J. S., Sacramento, Calif. Answer: I couldnt possibly know whats right for you, but if you decide to take a prescription diuretic or other drug, there are certain things you need to know to stay safe. For example, this: Diuretics or water pills and other blood pressure medications in general, often cause you to pee out important life-giving nutrients! These nutrients are necessary to make other organs run efficiently. These nutrients are needed for mood, sleep and muscle health. Drug-induced nutrient depletions are my pet peeve, so much so, I wrote a book on it! Its a No. 1 Amazon best-seller if that tells you how much people rely on it. Right now, I will explain for all the world to hear, how popular medications lead to new diseases. Having this information in your back pocket means you can say to your doctor, Hey, I have these side effects, do you mind if I grab some vitamins and minerals to offset the imbalance that my drug is creating? Or you an say this too, Doc, are you sure I have this disease, or could it be a side effect from the first drug you gave me? Knowing about drug muggers en ables you to put back what you are peeing out, and when your nutrient status is restored, you are less likely to be mistakenly diagnosed with a disease you really dont have. Dont just go off blood pressure medications without having a Plan B in place, and your physicians approval. These drugs have a place and are used to reduce edema and fluid retention in your legs, and to ease the shortness of breath that some of you experience as a result of congestion of fluid in your lungs. Loop diuretics (furosemide, bumetanide): Reduces calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, vitamin B1 (thiamine), vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) and vitamin C. Loop diuretics are the second biggest drug mugger I can think of, right behind acid blockers! When you take a loop diuretic, you can expect to become depleted in these nutrients within weeks, meaning all kinds of symptoms pop up that look like new diseases. So to make sure you dont suffer while taking this medication, I suggest you get a high-quality form of each of those nutrients, or a medical food that is approved by your physician. A multi wont do. Potassium: sparing (amiloride, triamterene, spironolactone): These are considered relatively weak diuretics and often used in combination with stronger ones. These reduce calcium, zinc and folate. A reduction in these can worsen your ability to detoxify and rid yourself of poisons (by cramping your methylation pathway), and weaken your bones, cause spasms, cramps, cardiac rhythm disturbances and poor libido.

Suzy CohenDEAR PHARMACIST METRODiuretics or water pills and other blood pressure medications in general, often cause you to pee out important life-giving nutrients.Marcus Welby M.D. used to cure diseases that had no cure without getting limited by what insurance companies would pay for, frustrated by paperwork that took as long as seeing the patient and trying to run a practice in the face of increasing costs and decreasing payments. Even though most people recognized this as ction, many developed unreal expectations of doctors. Now, television adver tisements aimed at the patient are causing a new round of unrealistic expectations. Pictures of patients jogging after hip or knee replacements, Dupuytrens contractures (bands that pull the ngers down) xed without surgery and endoscopic carpal tunnel release done with a small scope and camera through tiny incisions, is portrayed as having faster healing time after surgery than the open method. Joint replacement relieves joint pain and will allow the patient to be more active. Unlike the original equipment, the replacement does not repair itself. Unfortunately with time, even the best wear out. Activities that put more stress on the joint like the jogging shown on some TV ads wear them out faster. People who have only one bad joint are often more active after it is replaced and they no longer have pain. They have to get their articial joints replaced sooner than patients who are less active. Some ads claim that one brand is superior to another. The truth is that most work well. The brand that the doc tor and operating crew are most experienced with will give you the best results.The joints are often the same, but the special instrument systems to put them in are different from one manufacturer to another. Due to low reimbursements, hospitals, with input from the surgeons, will often contract with a specic manufacturer for all of the joints done at their location in return for a price reduction. Because of the small incisions of endoscopic carpal tunnel done with a scope and camera that shows the ligament to be cut on a monitor, doctors thought the patients would get back to work and other activities sooner. Studies showed that this was true ONLY in those who did very heavy labor. Pain at the base of the palm that was thought related to the skin incision occurs in the same percentage of endoscopic and open carpal tunnel releases. This method has one big disadvantage: If the nerve branches have variant anatomy and go through the ligament that is released, they were often cut because the surgeon cannot see them. It also was not recommended in diabetics, severe carpal tunnels and in those patients with previous wrist fractures. Until recently, the only treatment for Dupuytrens bands that cause contractures in the fingers was surgery. An injectable collagenase that dissolves the band was introduced in 2010. Training to do the injections takes only a few hours. The patient is injected one day and returns the next to have the nger manipulated. It works well for small contractures, particularly in the knuckle joint. Larger contractures or multiple bands (even if in the other hand) require repeat injections at monthly intervals. A small percentage of patients rupture the tendon. The tendon, like the Dupuytrens band, is made of collagen and it is located directly under the band and sometimes it is weakened by the collagenase. Patients recover from the surgery within a week or two, contractures in the skin or joints that occur in Dupuytrens are xed and multiple bands can be removed. Done by an experienced hand surgeon under regional anesthesia, the risk is minimal. However, the biggest drawback with the collagenases is the cost. Each injection costs about the same as the surgery charge in an ambulatory surgical center. Many insurance companies are not covering the cost of the drug, but will cover the surgical cost. Dont believe the television ads. Instead, talk to your doctor who is familiar with all the treatment methods about the right choice for you. Our goal is to make patients better, not to sell a specic brand or procedure. The rest of the story on medical advertising Dr. Diana CarrGUEST COLUMN Dr. Diana D.

Choir and Bell Choir practice on Wednesday; Bible studies throughout the week. 471-1999; LACES T O WO RSHIP RELIGION One Sunday, a family was returning home from the morning worship service of the Lords church. The father was criticizing the sermon. The mother thought the singing was terrible. And, the daughter complained about the length of one of the prayers. However, the negativity suddenly stopped when the small boy of the family blurted out, Yeah, but it sure was a good show for a nickel, dont you think, Pop? Whether it is the worship assembly or our day-to-day lives, some people fail to understand the purpose of Christianity. That pur pose does not revolve around our entertainment or other selsh ambitions. Rather, the purpose of Christianity (in fact, our very existence!) is to please God. All one thinks, feels, and does should center around Gods pleasure. When we look at Jesus, our perfect example, we hear Him say in John 5:30, ...I do not seek My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me. The apostle Paul told a group of Christians in 1 Thessalonians 4:1, Finally then, brethren, we request and exhort you in the Lord Jesus, that as you received from us instruction as to how you ought to walk and please God (just as you actually do walk), that you excel still more. In fact, the idea of seeking out the will of the Father and pleasing God rather than self is not something that is found in only one or two obscure verses of scripture. That idea is taught all through the Bible! Unfortunately, we live in an age where self seems to be the primary motivation for many. We constantly hear the attitude, What am I getting out of all of this? or How does that benet me? Perhaps, this is why so many people today are referred to as the me generation. Nevertheless, there is no me in God. Then where does one start in order to please God? The answer is simple. The basic building block for anyone desiring to please God is faith. Whether it is before one becomes a Christian or after, Gods word is clear. Hebrews 11:6 reads, And without faith it is impossible to please Him for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him. Today, in everything that you think, say, and do, try to please God by seeking out His will and obeying it. Then, repeat that course of action tomorrow, the next day, and the day after that. Before long, you will nd yourself in an eternal re lationship with a heavenly Father whose ultimate pleasure will be found in your salvation. Seek Gods pleasure today!Whose pleasure are you seeking? Kevin PattersonKEVINS KOMMENTS Kevins Komments is written by Kevin Patterson and presented by the Sebring Parkway church of Christ assembling at 3800 Sebring Parkway, Sebring, FL 33870. Find them on the internet at, or e-mail us at sebring Matthew 16 and Mark 8 record Jesus and his disci ples in Caesarea Philippi, the most northern recorded travel of Jesus. The city has an interesting Roman history but of more importance is the history to the ministry of the Son of God. Here Peter proclaimed Jesus as the Christ, i.e. Messiah and Jesus declared upon that truth He would build His church. Jesus uses the word church (ekklesia assembly, call, summons) for the rst time to describe what was referred to by the prophets Isaiah, Daniel and Micah as the kingdom and the house of the Lord. I will build My church (Matthew 16:18) demands close attention to clearly distinguish between what Jesus established and what has been founded on human authority and doctrines. I Who is this I? Peters confession clearly states the truth, You are the Christ, the Son of the living God. Jesus has all authority/power in heaven and on earth (Matthew 28:18) and the one and only head of the church: And He is the head of the body, the church, who is the beginning, the rstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the preeminence (Colossians 1:18 NKJV). He is rightfully the I because He purchased the church with His blood: Therefore take heed to yourselves and to all the ock, among which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to shepherd the church of God which He purchased with His own blood (Acts 20:28). Jesus is also the savior of the body, the church (Ephesians 5:23), wherein there is redemption: He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins (Colossians 1:13,14). WILL This word indicates a future act as well as a desire. Of course, Jesus, the Word, was aware of the eternal pur pose of Deity to reconcile both Jew and Gentile believers into the one body, church of Christ: and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity. And He came and preached peace to you who were afar off and to those who were near. For through Him, we both have access by one Spirit to the Father (Ephesians 2:16-18). The time was right for such a promise: But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons (Galatians 4:4,5); The time is fullled, and the kingdom of God is at hand, Repent, and believe in the gospel (Mark 1:15). Therefore, As for Saul, he made havoc of the church, entering every house and dragging off men and women, committing them to prison (Acts 8:3). BUILD This implies an architect, plan and price as there was in the ark, tabernacle and temple of old. It is common knowledge that the strength of the foundation and the accuracy of the corner stone is a must in any building: Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, in whom the whole building, being tted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord (Ephesians 2:19-22). Note that the Holy Spirit did not say apostle (such as Peter) but apostles and the prophetic word: For we did not follow cunningly devised fables when we made know to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of His majesty. For He received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory: This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased. And we heard this voice which came from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain. And so we have the prophetic word conrmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts (2 Peter 1:16-19). All the materials were in the right place at the right time!
