By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comAVON PARK Highlands County is at a point in its history where residents have to make choices regarding the economic base for years to come. Historically, the county economy has had an agricultural foundation. Now, however, most of the discussion has been centered on replacing farming with industry and expanded development the emphasis on creating high-paying "professional" jobs. That kind of narrow focus worries Jim Wood, who owns and operates the Palmetto Creek Farms, a small piece of hog heaven where pigs are born, raised and processed into pork. Wood thinks a new approach to farming has a great deal to offer the county, and that this new wave in agriculture should be factored into the future. He said there is a difference between farmers who sell on the open market and are tied to commodity prices and smaller niche farms which sell to specific buyers and can essentially set, or maintain, their own prices. But niche farmers have to do more than raise the crop or animal. "When you do what we do," Wood said, "you're more than a farmer; you manage the process from conception to delivery. "The farmer is the marketer, the processor, and the distributor." In Wood's case, he reached out to the high-end hotel and restaurant market in Tampa, Orlando and Palm Beach. "We've developed a relationship of mutual support," he said. "It's a valuable friendship we appreciate."

Sept. 2 is the deadline for amendments, and nine proposed amendments to the state's constitution actually made the first round of approvals. Only six are currently on the ballot, but that is still a lot of reading in the voting booth. Here are a brief of what each of the nine amendments contain:Amendment 1 This repeals Florida's system of public financing for statewide elections. Placed into the Constitution by the Florida voters in 1998, the original idea was to level the playing field for candidates against big money interests. Legislative leaders are now calling the idea of funding candidates for governor "welfare for politicians" and want to kill the idea. In 2006, the cost to taxpayers to fund elections was $11.1 million. Charlie Crist, who was elected governor that year, received $3.3 million. Those numbers were higher than in previous years because the Legislature had substantially increased the spending limits. This year, however, the lawmakers decided the program should die and the bill was sponsored by the legislature itself. "Why would we be spending tens of millions of taxpayer money when obviously anyone running statewide is going to be able to get the resources," said Sen. Mike Haridopolos, R-Melbourne, a sponsor of Amendment 1.Amendment 2This gives an increased homestead tax exemption to members of the military and reserves deployed outside the United States. The additional tax break would be based on the number of days of the year they were out of the country, but the eligible homeowners would have to already have at least one exemption.Amendment 4 This amendment is better known as "Hometown Democracy" and is possibly the most controversial of the amendments left on the table.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRIING Last-minute decisions on the Historic Circle renovation occupied the city council for an hour and a half at a special meeting held Tuesday evening. Much of the discussion concerned the sidewalk along Circle Drive in front of the storefronts. New gutters and curbs and a 5-foot-wide strip of pavers are part of the original design. The inner strip of the concrete sidewalk was to stay as is. This plan ran into opposition over the three different surfaces on sidewalks, especially as the inner most section would remain the dirty old concrete. Pattern textured pavement was suggested as a replacement. However, the council was not thrilled with the product. There were concerns regarding its color fading, the epoxy used in the application giving way over time, the rough surface making possible injuries more likely, and the cost and difficulty of cleaning. Council president John Clark worried that the business which installs the textured pavement has only been in business four years. "It's a new company," he said, "without much of a track record." The council had considerable concern that no matter what was chosen, it would look dirty and scuffy over time. This led Janice Shoemaker, whose family owns a business on the Circle, to rise from the audience. There is no permanent solution, she said. "You have to sweep your kitchen floor every day, don't you?" In fact, most comment from the audience was more concerned with getting the Circle ready for the winter visitor season. Susette Rhoades, who owns two businesses on the Circle, said, "We have concern, it's getting into the season and we don't want to see our streets and sidewalks in disarray." While the council did move ahead, approving pavers for the sidewalks within the park and extending the streetscape up North Ridgewood Drive to Pine Street, discussion was tabled regarding landscape planters being installed as part of the project and the possible removal of eight parking places. On the one hand, council member Scott Stanley pointed out the object is to get people to spend time downtown, not simply run to one store and leave. He said landscaping has proven to attract people who then linger. On the other hand, however, some of the planters will interfere with traffic and have to be moved. The conflict is that in moving the planters, parking spaces will be lost. While the council did vote to remove two planters from South Commerce, it asked city staff to research the planters impact overall and report back to the council. There is money to spare in the grant, because bids for work fell well below expectation. The council agreed to install crosswalks at certain intersections, including on Lakeview Drive by the library and Highlands Little Theatre.

By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING On Saturday, the M idwest Fiberglass Pool D istributors will be having a f undraiser car wash to benefit a l ocal family in their time of b ereavement. Marketing and sales d irector Bryan Weil was approached b y students of Sebring High School a bout having a fundraiser to help t he Bunting family. "They came up with the idea and a sked me if I'd be interested in h elping out and I said yeah,'so we're having it here," said Weil. According to Amber's father, Rick Bunting, 16-year-old Amber was baby-sitting for a family in Sebring on July 27. She was supervising small children in the family's pool when she unexpectedly suffered a seizure and drowned. Amber was revived but never regained consciousness. She was then transported to Tampa General Hospital where her family waited patiently for her to awaken, but she never did. She died 21 days later. "We had all kinds of test run on her, but the doctors could never figure out why she started seizing," said Rick Bunting. Only three months before Amber's drowning, on April 20, Rick and Sonya's son Dylan passed away. Dylan was born with a heart condition and died from complications following a heart transplant. "They've run into a lot of finical problems with the medical bills and everything else, so we hope this will help them," Weil explained. Rick Bunting explained that the family had just recently moved to Melbourne to live with friends after losing their house due to their financial situation. "We're in Melbourne staying with friends of my wife for right now," said Bunting. The parents were just recent ly informed of the fundraiser set up b y their mutual friends in honor of their daughter. Midwest Pools w ill be hosting the car wash as well as a bake sale. The building is on t he corner of State Road 98 an d Highway 27 in Sebring. Contributions to the memori al fund for both of the Bunting ch ildren can be donated to Bryan We il or deposited into the Wachov ia Bank account. For more inform ation call 655-9100.

POLICEBLOTTER Continued on page 5A By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Jean Carmen, who lives on Anna Avenue, is dealing with a nuisance in her own yard, and she's upset that she can't seem to get any help about it. Wednesday morning, Carmen noticed a stray dog had wandered into her yard and died. Carmen then called animal control and asked if they could come out to dispose of the dog. "The Animal Control people told me that they can't come and get it that I had to bury it myself. I can do that. I'm almost 80 years old," said Carmen. After speaking with code enforcement personnel, Carmen was again told to "bury the dog." The third call Carmen made was to Highlands County Sheriff's Office, who also informed Carmen that they could not collect the dog from her yard and that she would have to bury it. Carmen, who was noticeably upset and frustrated, did not understand why none of the city or county departments could not offer any help. "It's a problem when the City of Sebring gives you no help. But they ask for donations. Animal control is always asking for donations. Well, they're not going to get it," Carmen blared. According to Carmen, she is unable to physically do much around her own home and would not be able to dig a hole or bury t he dog. Carmen revealed th at she had nobody who wou ld be able to dispose of t he dog for her. "I asked my neighbor f or help but he's out of town in Orlando for the week. T he dog is just sitting there an d when the sun gets on it its going to boil and stink ," said Carmen. City and county ord inances both state that san itation workers are to di spose of any solid waste meaning garbage, horticu ltural trash, extraordina ry waste and rubbish. The ordinances also sta te that anything declared a nuisance can be report ed and action shall be taken to take care of the situation at their discretion. Gloria Rybinski, Publ ic Information Coordinat or for the county's board of commissioners, address ed Carmen's issue as not on ly her own, but others as we ll. "There's so many elder ly people in the area. I feel f or her, I really do. But if w e start doing favors for o ne we'd have to do them all nothing would get done ," explained Rybinski.

Wood held a cook-off r ecently, to which client c hefs were invited and chall enged to do their best with r ibs and pork loins. Teams from the area, i ncluding the Hyatt Orlando I nternational Airport, Lowes R oyal Pacific at Universal a nd Cafe Blue of Palm Beach a rrived at the farm armed w ith fennel, paprika, classic d ry rubs, gala apple and s weet onion jam, and apple b ourbon honey mustard g laze, turning meat into flav ors that melted in the mouth a nd stuck in the brain. Chefs like Sven Ullirch, of G rand Hyatt Tampa Bay, r aved about the meat's qualit y. "It's fantastic," said U llirch. "It's the fat content t hat makes the difference. Fat i s where the flavor is." He also raved about the m eat's moisture and tendern ess. The chefs were also enthus iastic about the whole farm p rocess, and the fact that the p ork was local and naturally g rown. Accent on the natural. Palmetto Creek Farms e ncompasses 30 oak-shaded a cres with soil from dry sand t o wet muck. It is a quiet place filled w ith light and shade, and the s ound of rustling leaves. It is so tranquil one can h ear a nearby sow, immersed i n water up to her snout, b lowing bubbles of contentm ent. The pigs all live outdoors i n pens with electrified f ences pigs are smart with m inds of their own, and need p rotection from their own c urious instincts. Some of the pens are s mall, but most are two or m ore acres in size, allowing f or freedom of movement. Seeing a herd they look like miniature hippos move through the small oak trees is like watching a nature show. First they shy away from people. Then, if one stays patiently still, they'll slowly approach until a person is totally surrounded. That's when their curiosity gets the best of them and they start pressing their snouts forward, checking out the human feet and ankles, nibbling at shoes. Pigs, especially big pigs, are strong. Wood said if a person stood on a grown pig's snout it could easily flip that individual into a somersault. The animals live in this Eden until the time comes to fulfill their role in life. And even then the process is designed to be low stress. The hogs are guided through a maze of pens and corridors they have been through many times, until they get to the spot where they are killed with a quick, clean stun, before they've had a moment to think or worry. The processing at the farm is done with a USDAinspector on scene. But Wood doesn't dwell on the life cycle that is his business. He is more interested in his animals living the best life and producing the best meat. He is grateful his farm has grown from a part-time almost hobby, to a full-time production that supports four families. He points out that his business has grown during the recession because agriculture is still integral and essential. He chaffs at the idea that farming is a second class occupation. "I've never been happier," he said, glad to have gotten away from real estate. And his employees have never been happier. Just as important, they make a decent living. From $16,000 in sales when he first started up part time, to this year when he expects $300,000 in sales, he has grown the farm through difficult economic times. This alone is one of the best reason to include farming in Highlands County's future, he said. www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, September 3, 2010Page 3A LIMITED SPACE … CALLTODAY! 5 DAYS a week$ 30 Get In Shape Learn Self Defense Improve Self Esteem Make Better Grades MARTIAL ARTS AMERICA471-2467 Best After School Program in SebringFREEPICKUP from: Kindergarten Learning Center, Cracker Trail, Sun-N-Lakes, Woodlawn, Fred Wild, Memorial, Hill Gustat, Sebring Middle/High Located on Kenilworth Sebring*Some Restrictions Apply Life Care, Not Day Care € Aluminum € PVC Sets € Wicker Sets € Bars & Bar Stools € Glider Chairs € Swivel Chairs € Outdoor Rugs € Outdoor Fireplaces € Umbrellas € Gas Fire PitsCUSTOMORDERS AVAILABLE NEW STOCK JUST ARRIVEDBESTSELECTION € BEST QUALITYBEST PRICE Continued from page 1A News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY Jim Wood surrounded by his pigs.

Hurricane Earl packed winds near 140 mph as it blew toward North Carolina on Thursday, putting the Eastern Seaboard up to Maine on alert for a Labor Day weekend pounding by waves, gales and rain. Ahurricane warning for the tip of Massachusetts, including Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard, joined earlier warnings and watches for hurricanes or tropical storms that stretch from North Carolina up to near the Canadian border. With Earl closing in on the U.S. coast, Federal Emergency Management Agency Administrator Craig Fugate said there was no longer time to wait on the next forecast to see how close the eye of the storm might get to shore. "They really need to focus today on what they're going to do before the storm gets there," Fugate said. "Implement your plans and be ready to heed evacuation orders." Earl was a dangerous Category 4 storm and the hurricane force winds were beginning to spread farther from the eye as the cent er of the storm underwent a change, the Nation al Hurricane Center in Miam i said. The center's directo r, Bill Read, said hurrica ne winds were spread 90 mil es from the eye and widenin g. The eye of the storm w ill likely remain about 30 to 75 miles east of the Out er Banks, meaning at the clo sest point of approach, t he western edge of the eyewa ll could impact Ca pe Hatteras, with huge wave s, beach erosion and may be some property dama ge from the waves. "They're going to have a full impact of a major hu rricane," Read said. There will be a simil ar close approach for the eas tern tip of Long Islan d, Rhode Island, Martha 's Vineyard, and Nantucket. "They'll be facing a sim ilar scenario that Nor th Carolina is facing today ," Read said. "And it will be bigger. The storm won't be as strong but they spre ad out as they go north and t he rain will be spreading fro m New England." That will mean stron g, gusty winds much like a nor'easter.

S o ... how goes the revolution? Judging b y Florida's s tatewide races on p rimary day, it goes v ery well. Tea partiers were able to c laim victories, a key establ ishment-backed insider lost b ig, and the twin messages of s maller government and l ower taxes seemed to reso nate. ... The tea partiers'biggest v ictory, one that was never in d oubt, was Marco Rubio's c laiming of the Republican n omination for U.S. Senate. R ubio usually is described as a "tea party favorite." The "tea party favorite" l abel also was applied to R ick Scott, who bested GOP i nsider Bill McCollum to win t he Republican nomination f or governor. We'll see if the b rand sticks. After Scott won a tea party endorsement r ecently, we received this a ngry news release: "Florida T ea Party LLC calls Rick S cott to refuse endorsement o f the fake political TEA P arty ... because it does not r epresent them." It said the d isputed endorsement had caused tea party activists to q uestion Scott's agenda." It seems there are almost as many tea parties as there are tea partiers, and they don't always see eye to eye. ... An editorial from the Northwest Florida Daily News.With Florida still facing double-digit unemployment and budget shortfalls, creating jobs and managing state finances are frontburner issues in the contest for governor. So it's not surprising that two candidates with business backgrounds would be left standing after (last) week's primary. The campaign of Republican Rick Scott, the health care mogul who spent at least $50 million to beat Bill McCollum for his party's nomination, calls him one of the nation's "foremost entrepreneurs. Democratic nominee Alex Sink was elected Florida's chief financial officer in 2006, but she is putting more emphasis on her tenure as a top bank executive. Even independent candidate Bud Chiles'website boasts of his "strong background in building businesses from the ground up." ... Voters should keep some facts in mind: Florida already has one the lowest rates 39th among states with a corporate income tax. That's part of the reason why the conservative Tax Foundation has rated Florida's business tax environment the nation's fourth friendliest. And if Florida were to cut or eliminate its tax, it would lose some or all of the funding behind a program, popular with both parties, that allows corporations to divert their tax toward scholarships for kids from poor families to attend private schools. TaxWatch has put more thought into the issue. ... Reforming the corporate income tax probably isn't on the list of promises from candidates because it doesn't work well as a campaign slogan. (It's not a very sexy subject for an editorial, either.) But it's the kind of idea that candidates touting their business smarts should be advocating. They should be more serious about fixing the economy, and have more faith in voters to get beyond sound bites. An editorial from the Orlando Sentinel.

Yes, Pastor Terry Jones of Gainesville is planning a Koran burning for the ninth anniversary of 9/11. His church, the ironically named Dove World Outreach Center, plans to show their contempt for the Islamic holy book, a tome the pastor admits he's never read, by using it as fuel for a bonfire. While the debate about books by those who read had been centered on the iPad versus the Kindle Dove World's debate is the bible versus the kindling. Which makes bloodletting suddenly seem forward thinking. If you thought the Twilight series cornered the market when it came to a lack of literary subtlety think again. Here we are in 2010 talking about burning books. So what if a small religious group is on a quest to quash copies of other religious books? Why is that such a big deal? This biblio-barbeque will be covered by the international press because it's a train wreck of a bad idea; therefore, Pastor Jones will be our face to the world. Mine, yours Americans in general. Yes, a preacher to a flock of nearly 50 will be the guy who Muslims, Christians, Jews, Buddhists, Hindus and Atheists from all over the world will identify with America. Everything about our country is about to be boiled down to a picture of a heap of Korans smoldering. Shock and awww. It'll be, "Americans burned the Koran." And it'll be true. Never mind that we have soldiers on the ground in two Muslim countries. Remember in 2005, the first scandal of Guantanamo Bay involved the alleged desecration of detainees'Korans by guards. That caused outrage across the globe. Way to support the troops, buddy. Other than a pointless, smoke-filled flip off to the second largest faith in the world, does the torching of media these days do what its purveyors want it to do? The Ancient Library of Alexandria was burned by Julius Caesar in 48 B.C.E. The loss of its contents arguably set back technology and culture for millennia. The conquistadors destroyed Mayan codices of their history and religion, obscuring the ancient Mayan culture indefinitely. The Mongol invaders massacred the Library of Baghdad, resulting in the death of a massive "house of wisdom ." These events forev er altered history, mainly because they took place before the printing press. After the printin g press and the creation of multicopied media, boo k burning become just a showy homage to the brutes o f the past. Libricide is an act of ove rt hostility. While Pastor Jone s told the New York Times that he hopes this event won't lead to violence, he's planning a violent act. Author and professor Rebecca Knuth studied boo k burnings in Germany, Bosnia, Kuwait, China and Tibet. She concludes libricide often precedes genocide. Needless to say, this i s not an act of "furthering th e dialog." You don't exactly make the case for how your religion is the one of peace while you're lighting things on fire. Maybe Dove World has tapped into the conventiona l wisdom that you can never go wrong blaming the medi a a literal shooting of the messenger. Abook is a sym bol. So the tactic preferred by the Nazis and Conquistadors alike is still alive as a tone-deaf attempt at cultural criticism. John Lennon said his ban d was more popular than Jesus, so Beatles representa tions were treated like 17th century witches and burned at the stake. In the 1980's metal albums were thought to bring 1980s teenagers to Satan so they also were torched. Harry Potter books have met a similar fate. Did this eradicate the subjects? No. Do public displays of pitchforks and torches mak e them any less popular? No. On the contrary, since th e creation of copies and more recently the Internet, Dewe y Decimal Demolitions and Album Atom Rearrangers seem to make the subject more popular and maligned the source of the spark. So as all Muslims are apparently judged by their extremists who on 9/11 crashed planes into building s all Americans will be judged by our extremists who on 9/11 burned Korans into ashes. MuslimAmericans are in an awkward position. But most notably it mean s the Muslim world and Americans are about to hav e more in common than they thought.

Representations of fact and opinions are solely those of the author. A burning question: Extremists on 9/11 Guest Column Tina Dupuy Serving the public?Editor: Politicians and highly paid bureauc rats seem to always claim to be "servi ng the public". My beliefs are that o nly the military personnel under the r ank of major and the police and firem en are the only ones actually serving t he public. They put their lives in dang er and do it for little pay. Aservice man or woman can not just q uit or resign to take a higher paying j ob; they must complete their term of e nlistment. Notice how many politic ians leave their position to take multim illion jobs with the big corporations t hat they had been serving. I would say that anyone who claims t o be serving the public, and not putt ing their lives in danger would have to b e receiving pay less than the median h ousehold income of where they live. M ost volunteers meet that criteria, m any I know give their time and efforts f ree, and take what they do very serio usly, but certainly not the ones getting p aid excessively, like the Red Cross l eaders, for example. Eighty percent of the politicians s erve their political party, people who c ontribute to their campaign funds or p eople in position to benefit from their d ecisions and are willing to repay in w hat ever way for that decision. Some d on't even try to disguise it. I am looking forward to see which l ocal politician creates a new position f or a commissioner who will be out of a government job around the November e lection day. Another example, and I don't believe i t was a coincidence that Mr. (Michael) W right ordered Mr. (Ken) Wheeler to f ire or order a resignation of two peop le. He did this on a Monday and on T uesday morning a motion was made to fire Mr. Wright. I see some disciplinary action was taken on the two men and Mr. Wheeler, but in my opinion it was not enough. Refusing an order of a superior in government or the private sector is ground for dismissal. I was surprised that any thing was done, let alone a suspension. I believe that the three persons who voted to dismiss Mr. Wright should resign, immediately. When you end up in fifth place in the voting, that sends a strong message that the public, aka as the citizens, no longer wants that person to "serve the public". Mr. (Charles) Bryan set the bar very high on how to run an elective office. So far he is one of very few I have seen that really believed in serving the citizens. The new commissioners elected in November need to fully understand their job. The terms I heard during the primary that many quoted ... common sense, serve the public, integrity and character ... need to be taken seriously. That way, maybe, just maybe, the Good Ole Boys Club will dissipate. Way too many incidents have happened that permanent correction action needs to be taken. If it means someone losing their job, so be it. The leaders of this county need to learn about profound knowledge. Several corporations hired me to teach facility managers Profound Knowledge via Total Quality Management courses. I would like to do a capability analysis on Highlands County departments. I would do it just for a percentage of what I would save the taxpayers, and yes there would be jobs combined and or eliminated. Comments? Send to weclagg@strato.net. William E. Clagg Lake PlacidSept. 17 is National POW/MIA Recognition Day Editor: The VFWLadies Auxiliary will be teaching our children all over the state about the POW/MIAflag this month. The only flag recognized by the U.S. Congress to be placed on display at the Capitol Rotunda. I am sure many of you have noticed the flag flying at your post office, school, fire station and police station. Next time you do please take a moment to look over the black POW/MIAflag. It is federal law to display the POW/MIAflag at all government buildings, VAoffices, veterans cemeteries and post offices on the third Friday of each September on these days: Independence Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day Armed Forces Day and Veterans Day. Americans who have a Missing in Action, shot down'presumed dead or a soldier captured and held Prisoner of War but never returned, still to this day yearn to know the answers, to have closure in their lives. The Joint Accounting Command (JPAC) teams continue to search for our missing in Russia, Cambodia, Korea, Vietnam, Laos and where ever we have missing not accounted for. We need to keep the pressure on these governments to keep letting JPAC search for our MIA's. Please take a moment on Sept. 17 to recognize America's POW/MIA's. Let the families of our MIAsoldiers know they are not forgotten. Most veterans' organizations have some type of ceremony on that day and would welcome you to join them.

Associated Pres JACKSONVILLE R epublican gubernatorial n ominee Rick Scott named J acksonville state Rep. J ennifer Carroll as his running m ate Thursday, hoping she c an attract votes from blacks a nd women, both traditionally D emocratic constituencies. Carroll, 51, is a Navy vetera n and mother of three who in 2 003 was the first black f emale Republican elected to t he Florida Legislature. If e lected with Scott, she'll b ecome the state's first black l ieutenant governor. "She's a history-maker and a barrier-breaker," Scott said i n introducing Carroll at a n ews conference in front a B lue Angels jet displayed at N aval Air Station J acksonville. The Green Cove Springs r esident who backed S cott's opponent, Bill M cCollum, in the primary i s expected to help him by a ppealing to the state's black v oters and to women who m ight gravitate to Democratic n ominee Alex Sink because of h er gender. In a tight election, t hat could be key even if she p ulls only a few percentage points. Asked whether she thought she was picked to reach out to certain demographics, Carroll said, "I would hope I'd bring a whole lot more than that to the ticket. "Rick and I share a common vision for the state of Florida," she said. "It's about jobs, jobs, jobs." Sink said she doesn't think Scott's diverse ticket will impact her sway with blacks and women. "I think people, when they go to vote, they're past all these gender and racial issues," Sink said. "They're really looking at the candidates and the messages and the commitments that the candidates have to changing the future of Florida." An immigrant from Trinidad, Carroll served 20 years in the U.S. Navy, working as a jet mechanic before retiring as a lieutenant commander. Elected to the state House in 2003, she's served as deputy majority leader and majority whip. She's also a former executive director of the Florida Department of Veterans'Affairs. She moved to Florida in 1986 and currently runs a public-relations consulting business. Her 23-year-old son, Nolan Carroll II, is a rookie defensive back with the Miami Dolphins after being selected in the fifth round of the NFL draft out of the University of Maryland. Scott, a multimillionaire former hospital company CEO who never ran for office before, beat McCollum in the Aug. 24 primary after a bitter campaign that saw Scott spend around $50 million of his own money blanketing the state with his TVcommercials. Scott presented himself to voters as an outsider who was bucking the Tallahassee establishment. This week he's been on a "unity tour" of the state with Republican leaders who had supported McCollum in the primary. Carroll acknowledged that she endorsed McCollum before Scott jumped into the race in April and stuck with him until the end. f inal say over amendments t o city and county compreh ensive plans. Comprehensive plans are d esigned to control size and t ypes of development within t he counties and cities. Proponents say that local g overnments have rubber s tamped large developers w ithout consideration to a lready empty houses m ore than 300,000 in Florida a s of last month according to R eality-Trac and the e nvironment. Opponents, mostly large l andowners, developers and r eal estate groups, say that it w ill cost local governments l ots of money because every c hange to the comprehensive p lan will now have to go to a vote. There were more than 6 ,000 changes to comprehens ive plans statewide last y ear. A mendments 5 & 6 These also were put on the b allot by citizen petition. Their stated goal is "fair d istricts" for the legislature a nd congress, saying that d istricts should not be drawn b y the Legislature to "favor o r disfavor" one party or i ncumbent. Redistricting happens e very 10 years by law, and is a n act of dividing the state i nto new election districts. The proponents of the c hanges state they are trying t o establish "fairness stand ards" for creating legislat ive and congressional dist rict boundaries. Opponents say among o ther things that this is i mpossible to achieve and w ill automatically throw r edistricting into the courts. A mendment 8This is the Legislature's attempt to relax the rules for public school class sizes in Florida that were approved by voters in 2002. The amendment would return to using schoolwide average class sizes instead of a strict per-classroom limit. The change would allow a school to be over the average in one class provided that excess is balanced by another class at that school with fewer students than the allowable average. Backers of the amendment say the change would save millions of dollars and give individual schools a measure of flexibility not present in the current law. Opponents say voters are king, and that they clearly wanted to cap class sizes at the levels they passed into law in 2002. They also state that students and teachers benefit from smaller class sizes. Three amendments were originally set to be on the ballot in November, but have been dropped. Amendment 3 is no longer on the ballot, but contained two more tax ideas. It said that the tax appraisal on a non-homestead property can't go up by more than 5 percent a year and created a property-tax exemption for first-time home buyers of up to 25 percent of a home's value in the first year, which is then phased out over the next few years. Currently, non-homesteaded property can have a tax increase of up to 10 percent per year. Amendment 7 was also dropped from the ballot by a judge, but was the Legislature's reply to Amendments 5 and 6. The claim was that it meant only to "clarify" the previous two amendments. Critics said it really wiped them out, because it declares that its own wording shall not be "subordinate" to any other part of the Constitution. Amendment 9 was the Republican legislature's answer to the health care bill passed by the Democratic congress, but was also stricken from the ballot. It stated that Floridians cannot be required to take part in "any health care system." But federal law remains the top of the heap when it comes to enforcement. www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, September 3, 2010Page 5A SERVICE … 6 DAYS A WEEK 2833 Hwy 27 S. € Avon Park € 453-CART (2278) Email us at: ezgotxt@aol.comAmerican Golf Cart Golf Cart BatteriesFrom $5995& Up+ Tax & ExchangeCLEARANCE2006 CartsWhile They Last!

Scott picks state legislator Carroll as running mate Associated PressWASHINGTON Aweak econo my got a little lift Thursday with n ew data suggesting companies a ren't pursuing mass layoffs and s tores are a little busier. New applications for unemploym ent benefits declined for a second s traight week after rising in the prev ious three. Retailers reported surprisingly s trong sales in August. And more p eople signed contracts to buy h omes. Economists were mildly encoura ged by the news, which followed s everal downbeat reports on housi ng and weaker economic growth last week. But few saw signs that the economy is gaining momentum. "It's encouraging that we're not seeing further deterioration as we have in recent months," said Julia Coronado, U.S. economist at BNP Paribas. "But we're not turning around and moving in the direction of stronger growth." New claims for unemployment aid fell last week by 6,000 to a seasonally adjusted 472,000, the Labor Department said Thursday. The four-week average of claims, a less-volatile measure, fell by 2,500 to 485,500, its first decrease after four straight increases. Even with the declines, claims are still at much higher levels than they would be in a healthy economy. When economic output is growing rapidly and employers are hiring, claims generally drop below 400,000. It appears "that a wave of panicked layoffs has passed, as companies have become a bit calmer in the face of the financial and economic disruptions of late spring and early summer," Pierre Ellis, an economist at Decision Economics, wrote in a note to clients. In a separate report, the Labor Department said productivity fell in the spring by the largest amount in nearly four years while labor costs rose. That indicates companies may have reached the limits of their ability to squeeze more work out of their reduced work forces. The nation's retailers reported surprisingly solid gains for August. Aggressive discounting helped during an unusually hot summer when consumers worried about jobs and a weakening economy. And the number of buyers who signed contracts to purchase previously occupied homes increased in July, according to the National Association of Realtors. But it remained well below last year's levels, a sign that demand for housing remains weak. The modest increase in hom e sales comes as mortgage rates ke ep falling. The average 30-year mo rtgage dropped to 4.32 percent th is week, down from 4.36 percent la st week, according to mortgage buy er Freddie Mac. That's the tenth time in the pa st 11 weeks that rates have hit the ir have lowest level since Freddie M ac began tracking them in 1971. In another report, factory orde rs rose slightly in July after tw o months of declines. But most of t he gains were a result of higher a irplane orders. Excluding transport ation, orders fell 1.5 percent, t he biggest drop in 16 months. Data shows jobless claims drop for second straight week, retail sales rise

OBITUARIES COMMUNITYBRIEFS By ALAN SAYRE Associated Press WriterNEWORLEANS, La. A n offshore petroleum platf orm exploded and was b urning Thursday in the G ulf of Mexico about 100 m iles off the Louisiana c oast, west of the site where B P's undersea well spilled a fter a rig explosion. The Coast Guard said no o ne was killed in the explos ion, which was spotted by a c ommercial helicopter flyi ng over the site Thursday m orning. All 13 people a board the rig have been a ccounted for, with one i njury. The extent of the i njury was not known. They were rescued from t he water by an offshore service vessel, the Crystal Clear, said Coast Guard Cmdr. She said they were taken to a nearby platform. All were being flown to the Terrebonne General Medical Center in Houma to be checked over. "Thirteen people were seen huddled together in the water wearing gumby suits or immersion suits, water protection suits, so we were able to confirm that all people were accounted for," Coast Guard spokesman Chief Petty Officer John Edwards said. Seven Coast Guard helicopters, two airplanes and three cutters were dispatched to the scene from New Orleans, Houston and Mobile, Ala., Ben-Iesau said. She said authorities do not know whether oil was leaking from the site. The platform, known as Vermilion Oil Platform 380, was owned by Mariner Energy of Houston, according to a homeland security operations update obtained by The Associated Press. The platform was not producing oil and gas, according to the operations report. Melissa Schwartz, spokeswoman for Bureau of Energy Management Regulation and Enforcement, said the platform was authorized to produce oil and gas at this water depth but had not been recently.

WEBER Associated Press WriterNEWORLEANS The cap that ended BP's three-month oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico was set to come off Thursday as a prelude to raising a massive, failed piece of equipment and preparing for a final seal on the broken seafloor well. Engineers and the government were not expecting crude to break out again when the cap is lifted, but the government wasn't offering any guarantees and oil collection vessels were set to be on standby on the surface just in case. The cap is an elongated metal cylinder that was placed on top of the failed blowout preventer to finally stop the flow of oil and gas July 15. With the cap gone, the old blowout preventer can be removed and a new one put in place before engineers try to seal the well for good deep underground. Once the cap and blowout preventer are removed, a lot will be riding on the stability of a plug that was created when mud an d cement were pumped down into the well fro m the top. Essentially, the pressure exert ed downward served to counter the pressu re coming up. But Rice University engineering profess or George Hirasaki said there is still uncertain ty about whether the cement settled everywhe re it needed to in order to keep oil and gas fro m finding its way up. "Just because it didn't flow when they tes ted it doesn't mean the cement displaced all of the oil and gas," Hirasaki said. That's why many people have felt that fi nishing a relief well and pumping mud an d cement in through the bottom would be t he ultimate solution to the crisis, said Hirasak i. The government still plans on ordering B P PLC, the majority owner of the well, to do t he so-called bottom kill operation. But it believes the wisest course is to put on a ne w blowout preventer first to deal with any pre ssure that is caused. Risks remain with Gulf well cap coming off

By DANHOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comThey've had some lean years, the Cincinnati Reds, but it hasn't been that bad. And it's a town rich in baseball history, with the dominating Big Red Machine of the 70s, the Lou Piniella team of the late 80s with the "Nasty Boys" bullpen that won the 90 World Series. And so Cincinnati knows baseball success, so then what's with the attendance this year? On Tuesday, the flamethrowing phenom Aroldis Chapman had been brought up and was likely to make his debut in the bullpen. They were leading the National League Central and have a player, Joey Votto, with a realistic shot at the Triple Crown this year. Given all that, the pennant race, two must-see players in action on a warm, late Augu st night and the Reds attendance for that game was 19,218 at Great American Ball Park. Even after Chapman's ele ctric debut, in Tuesday's win, hitting 103 on the radar gun Wednesday's game drew eve n fewer fans, 16,412. Meanwhile, in Chicago, th e second-to-last-place Cubs By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAfter Monday's sweep of Hardee, the Lady Blue Streaks headed to Winter Haven for a big district test against the Blue Devils. The result was a 3-2 loss, but head coach Venessa Sinness was quite encouraged. "They only graduated two players, neither of whom were real big contributors," she said. "We graduated four, all who were main players and three who played all over." Add to that, Winter Haven brought back Division I prospect, 6-foot-2 Ashley Dills, who would wind up with 20 kills on the night. Alongside Dills on a towering front line were also the likes of 6-foot-1 Katora Roberts and 6-foot Allie Merritt. "I think there was a little intimidation factor early," Sinness said. "We're still real young, as far as experience at the varsity level." And even with what would seem a stacked deck, Sebring more than made a match of it. After falling 25-22 in the opener, the Streaks bounced back with a 25-19 win. The wheels came off a little in the third game, a 25-14 loss, but a 25-22 win in the fourth evened things up and sent that match to the 15-point tie-breaker. "We beat them to 10 and were up 13-11, but we just couldn't close it out," Sinness said of the 16-15 loss. "(Dills) was really tough and she's just so tall, her hitting was really good. She almost took Dino's (Lower) head off at one point. But it was a good learning experience for the girls, to go in there this early in the season and take that team to five games. I don't want them to take it as a setback, it should really be encouraging for them and something to build on." The girls were back in action Thursday in anoth er district tilt, hosting La ke Wales. Results were not availab le at press time, but see Sunday 's News-Sun for a recap of t he contest. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID It was s loppy at times, the Lady T itans hung around and L ake Placid didn't score t he opening point of a g ame until the finale d espite all that, the Lady D ragons showed their s trength down the stretch in t aking their season and dist rict opener over Tenoroc i n four games Tuesday n ight. "We always start out s low and lose the second g ame before winning the n ext two," head coach L inette Wells said. "I don't k now if it's the Lake Placid c urse or what but we seem t o stay on a fine line and c an't seem to get out of it." It played out similarly to t heir contest against Avon P ark in the Sebring P reseason Classic consolat ion game last Thursday. The Dragons came out a nd found themselves in a t itanic battle early on as T enoroc took an early lead a nd hung around through t he midway point of the g ame. Alysha Curtis came up b ig often in the opener to k eep Lake Placid afloat, g etting two kills, a block a nd an ace in getting her t eam to a 9-7 advantage. The Titans tied it with t he next two points, but a c ouple of mini-runs soon s aw the Dragons stretch it t o 17-11 with Alana Nielander adding two aces, Marissa Baldwin getting two kills and Taylor Miller tipping one across for a score. Up 19-13 after a Miller ace, Lake Placid saw Tenoroc fight back to get to within 22-20 before a Curtis block and Nielander ace sealed the 25-20 win.

History would repeat itself again, though n ot as exactly, with Tenoroc charging out to a 7 -1 lead to start the second game. Lake Placid came back to close to 7-6 on a C urtis ace, but another run put the Titans back i n control at 14-6. Again the Dragons closed the gap, only to s ee Tenoroc push and ultimately take a 25-19 w in to even the match at a game apiece. "In the second game I switched some peop le in, and at practice that group has worked w ell," Wells said. "But they got off to a slow s tart. I don't know if it's that their cold comi ng off the bench, but for some reason that g roup is fine in practice but didn't seem to c lick." The story continued the same way as five d ays before as Lake Placid then seemed to f ind themselves and play like the five-time d istrict champs they are, having an easier t ime in 25-16 and 25-12 wins to close it out. And wouldn't you know it, after a match t hat played out very much like their contest a gainst Avon Park, Lake Placid headed up H wy. 27 to face the Lady Devils again T hursday night in district action. "We're going to work on our coverage," W ells said. "As well as our serving. I don't k now how many points we gave up tonight on o ur serves. Avon Park also has some hitters, s o we'll be working on our blocking as well." Nielander lead the Lake Placid hitters with 1 2 kills with Kylie Weber setting up 25 a ssists. Curtis'big night at the net included seven b locks as well as nine aces while Brittany C ollison shored up the back line of the d efense with 14 digs.

Second-place San Francisco, in the NL West, saw 31,186 turn out. Teams that drew around the same as the Reds on Wednesday?

Each year, to encourage continuous quality improvement, the company recognizes its facilities that are noteworthy in their high achievement of clinical quality outcomes. The company's annual Center of Excellence awards recognize those clinics nationwide that have delivered the highest levels of quality patient care, based on objective measurements of the patients'status. This year's Center of Excellence award winners are Fresenius Medical Care Avon Park and Fresenius Medical Care Sebring. "We commend the dedication and hard work of our medical directors and clinical staff at these deserving Centers of Excellence. The award signifies their unwavering commitment to delivering the highest possible level of care so our patients can be more successful on dialysis, and live their lives to the fullest," said Chris Fonvielle, regional vice president for Fresenius Medical Care. Dialysis is a life-sustaining process that cleans waste products from the blood, removes extra fluids and controls the body's chemistry when a person's kidneys fail. Dialysis patients typically require treatment on an ongoing basis unless they receive a kidney transplant. Fresenius Medical Care has established high standards of clinical quality company wide, in keeping with those published by the Kidney Disease Outcomes Quality Initiative (KDOQI) of the National Kidney Foundation. Fresenius Medical Care selects Centers of Excellence annually based on how the facilities perform on multiple objective measures of dialysis clinical quality.

Associated PressLOS ANGELES George C looney, Will Smith and G wyneth Paltrow will join an i mpressive list of stars taking p art in September's "Stand U p to Cancer" telethon airing o n major networks. Other celebrities a nnounced Wednesday i nclude Denzel Washington, R enee Zellweger, Kathy B ates and Richard Branson. K areem Abdul-Jabbar, Lance A rmstrong and Elizabeth E dwards were previously a nnounced as participants. Performers will include G reen Day's Billie Joe A rmstrong, Neil Diamond, T he Edge, Herbie Hancock, L ady Antebellum and Leona L ewis. Queen Latifah, M artina McBride and Stevie W onder were among those a lready announced. Clooney, in particular, is a f undraising heavyweight. At S unday's Emmy Awards, he a ccepted the Bob Hope H umanitarian Award for e fforts on behalf of victims of t his year's earthquake in H aiti, the 2004 tsunami in I ndonesia and the Sept. 11 a ttacks. "Stand Up to Cancer" is a imed at raising money to s peed up innovative cancer r esearch, according to movie producer Laura Ziskin ("Spider-Man"), who is a cancer survivor and cofounder of the Stand Up to Cancer group. The telethon is returning for a second time after the 2008 event helped deliver more than $100 million for research. This year's telethon will be simulcast commercial-free (8 p.m.-9 p.m.) on Sept. 10 by ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC as well as a variety of cable channels. Cat Deeley, host of Fox's "So You Think You Can Dance," will host a half-hour pre-show (7:30 p.m. EDT) available widely online at major network sites as well as other sites and portals including E! Online, Hulu and YouTube. "Adonation of any size brings scientists one step closer to a cure," Ziskin said. All public donations go to cancer research. The American Association for Cancer Research, the scientific partner of Stand Up to Cancer, administers grants and provides scientific oversight in partnership with a Stand Up to Cancer advisory committee. Stand Up to Cancer is a program of the Entertainment Industry Foundation, a nonprofit TVand film industry group that supports programs addressing health, education and social issues. Telethon viewers will be asked to pledge donations by phone or on the Stand Up to Cancer website. Besides the broadcast networks, Bio, Discovery Health, E!, G4, HBO, HBO Latino, MLB Network, mun2, Showtime, Smithsonian Channel, The Style Network, TVOne and VH1 also will simulcast. DearPharmacist: I dread t hat my son is going back to s chool because it means that h e will catch a cold and r emain constantly sick until T hanksgiving. We will all g et sick as a result! Please m ake suggestions to keep o ur family well. C.S., Gainesville Answer: There are lots of p arents who feel your pain a nd deal with a sick househ old at the beginning of the s chool year. Germs are e verywhere, yet not everyo ne catches cold, and not e veryone stays "constantly s ick until Thanksgiving." T he difference between your c hild and others is how s trong their immune system i s. Immune cells live primar ily in the digestive tract so w hat you eat directly cont rols how frequently you b ecome ill. When the gut f lora is missing or you have a n overgrowth of Candida y east, you will get sick more frequently, and it may linger. Read my series on Candida posted at my website. Children who incessantly cough not only spread their germs to everyone, but they disrupt classrooms around the country so I'll focus on that aspect of the cold. Here are ways to treat symptoms: 1. Sugary foods: Get rid of them. Sugar upsets the mineral balance leaving children more susceptible to infection so the number one thing you can do is eliminate sugary juice boxes, candied cereals, cookies and soda. Most junk food manufacturers deceive parents and label their product with "fortified with..." and to me, this is a joke If you have to fortify something, it's garbage to begin with. 2. Marshmallow: Not the soft, white puffy ones, I mean the root which is sold at health food stores; it relieves sore throats and chest colds. Buy the tea and serve it three times daily. 3. Licorice: Again, not the candy, the root. Licorice has antibacterial properties and is very soothing when you drink the tea three times daily. Not for people with high blood pressure. 4. Slippery Elm lozenges: Anative American herb used for centuries to soothe sore throats, also great for people with GERD, irritable bowel, Crohn's, IBS, ulcerative colitis or diarrhea. Sold at all health food stores. 5. Herbal rub: Mix two tablespoons olive oil with 1 or 2 drops of eucalyptus or peppermint oil. Rub it on your child's chest. 6. Delsym or Robitussin DM: These OTC medications contain "dextromethorphan" which is a cough suppressant, related to opiates. 7. Mullein Tea: This herbal tea acts as an expectorant and is very helpful for coughs and bronchitis. 8. Ibuprofen (Advil): Sold at pharmacies, children like the liquid flavors and chewable tablets so it's easily administered. Ibuprofen is an effective anti-inflammatory and relieves your child's body aches and pains, while reducing fever. 9. Garlic: Huge when it comes to prevention, garlic is Mother Nature's antibiotic. Eat it or buy odorless supplements. 10. Zinc lozenges or Vitamin C: These antioxidants are known for their ability to shorten the duration and severity of the com mon cold.

Foot problems can result f rom injury, hereditary factors, d eformity, illness, and imprope r shoes child have a say in t he shoe buying process prom otes healthy foot habits d own the road. Here are simp le tips to make shoe shopping l ess stressful: 1. Shop for shoes later in t he day. Feet tend to swell duri ng the day 2. Buy shoes that do not n eed a "break-in" period. They should fit comfortably from the get-go 3. Always buy for the larger foot. One might be larger than the other. 4. Have your child try on shoes with socks or tights, if that's how they'll be worn. 5. Inspect your child's feet for warts, flatfeet, and ingrown nails. The earlier the treatment, the faster your child will be back to sports and playing. When you buy the shoes see if they pass the 1-2-3 TEST. 1. Press on both sides of the heel counter. It shouldnt collapse. 2. Check toe flexibility. The shoe should bend with your child's toes. It shouldn't be too stiff or bend too much in the toe box area. 3. Select a shoe that's rigid in the middle. Does your shoe twist? Your shoe should never twist in the middle. Following this test will guarantee you an Afor this school year.

It's the third time he's broken his promise to take you and the kids to...wherever. Something else always comes first. It's the fifth time he has watched his favorite sport on TVbut he gripes if you watch your sitcom. It's the umpteenth time he's forgotten to take out the trash and you've had to do it yourself. As if all of that isn't bad enough, you constantly have to pick up after him, do the laundry, the cooking, the cleaning, play taxi for the kids and their activities, and you have an outside job. I can feel the resentment and anger from my chair. Are you keeping score of all the disappointments in your marriage? Here's the question: Are there any advantages in keeping score? Here are some thoughts to ponder: Do you want him keeping score of the times you've disappointed him? Hebrews 10:17 talks about how God forgives. It says, "And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more." When God forgives, he forgets. Psalm 103:12 says, "As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us." Matthew 6:12, 14 says if you don't forgive those that have wronged you, neither will your heavenly Father forgive you. Philippians 4:13, 14 says, "....forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." Forget the past. You can't change it. Dwelling on the past is self-defeating. Philippians 4:8 tells us to not even let negative thoughts in. We are rather to dwell on, ponder, consi der, and eagerly look for th e good and positive things i n each other and in life. Loo k forward to the future. Plan it together. Be willing to compromise. If you want to be happy in your family relationships, forget the things tha t are past. If you ask God to help you, you can do it. Philippians 4:13 says, "I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me." You can't do it by yourself, but with the Hol y Spirit living inside, yes yo u can. Aleta Kay is a lay counselor.

On Sunday, Sept. 19 the church will focus on "Bless Our Schools" Sunday, along with churches worldwide praying for children and schools. This day is set aside for churches to honor educators in their congregations by praying for local schools, staff and students as the school year begins. The emphasis on prayer for area schools continues on Wednesday, Sept. 22, as students are encouraged to participate in "See You at the Pole," the global day of student prayer. Sunridge Baptist Church is located on the corner of U.S. 27 and Valerie Boulevard, directly across the street from Florida Hospital, Heartland Division. Snapshots Continued on page 7B

Continued from page 7B RELIGION Church News "Oh Lord, won't you buy me a Mercedes Benz..." the words from a song by Janis Joplin back in the day (1971). Sometimes my prayer life can sound like this a one-way street. God can't get a word in edgewise. But true communication goes both ways. It's OK to pray for loved ones, situations, needs and even ask for what you want once in awhile. He can always say No. But listening for His response means I need to be still and quiet, in order to hear Him. If all I do is repeat my list to Him over and over and do not worship Him with my everyday life, then it is no different than rubbing the Genie bottle to get my wishes fulfilled. God is not a Genie nor Santa Claus. He is not at our beck and call. We are at His, if we follow Him and call Him our Lord and Savior. These are trying times and it's no longer about "me and what I want," but it's also about my fellowman. No doubt, God has a lot on His mind (though He can handle it and does not get weary), still He longs for us to get outside of our box, ou r little world, our needs and see where His heart is. He's with the lost children, the homeless, the nursing home residents, the sick an d dying, even the prisoner; wherever the hurting can be found. The prob lem is He can't come in the flesh (He already did), He needs those who serve Him to go for Him and be His hands and feet. The next time we pray, let's ask God about His desires. Where doe s He want to make a difference? We can "go there" for Him. The mission field no longer means going t o some foreign country; it may be next door to us or across the street Let's lighten someone's load today God bless.

www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, September 3, 2010Page 9B By JAKE COYLE APEntertainment Writer Hidden from critics until just before its release, the dirty secret about "The American" turns out to be that it's an "art film." Heavens, no! Director Anton Corbijn has crafted a quiet, haunting European thriller, drained of emotion and moving to its own deliberate pace. It's the second film from Corbijn, a famed photographer and music video director who's closely associated with the bands Depeche Mode and Joy Division (among others). His first film, "Control," was a beautiful, austere black-andwhite biopic of Joy Division's Ian Curtis. "The American," too, has the bleak fatalism of a Joy Division song, but taut and restrained, it bears none of the rock n'roll release. George Clooney plays an assassin, Jack, whom the film opens on in bed with a beautiful woman, warm next to a fire in a winter cabin. Afterward, they bundle up and take a stroll in the kneedeep snow, where snipers suddenly begin firing at them. Jack quickly and with obvious skill dispatches the threat, and tells his shocked companion to call the police. As soon as she turns, he shoots her in the back of the head. So much for pillow talk. His boss (Johan Leysen) tells him by phone to lie low in a small Italian village. Arriving there, he takes one look at it and makes a Uturn, settling on the more appealing nearby town of Castelvecchio, a picturesque medieval village in the mountains of Abruzzo. Jack putts around town a stone labyrinth posing as a photographer of landscapes and architecture. Though he has been warned not to "make any friends," the town priest, Father Benedetto (Paulo Bonacelli), befriends him, and he develops a relationship with a prostitute, Clara (Violante Placido). They both see the darkness hanging over Jack, but are hopeful for him. Clara tells him, "You're a good man, but you have a secret." Father Benedetto warns, "You're American. You think you can escape history." His past is catching up, too. Someone is shadowing him, reports of his previous misdeeds are showing up in the newspapers and a new job arrives: building a silent, highly precise rifle a task which he attends to with the care of an artisan. Though Jack says little and remains largely inscrutable, Corbijn working from a script by Rowan Joffe, loosely adapted from Martin Booth's 1990 novel, "AVery Private Gentleman" gives glimpses of his sensitivity. He finds it difficult to deny the companionship of the priest or the love of Clara. He has a weakness, too, for butterflies, with a tattoo of one of them on his back. The question of Jack's salvation is hinted at by the remarkable opening title sequence (which follows the abrupt shooting in the snow) that simply frames Jack in silhouette as he drives through a long tunnel with a bright light shining at the end. "Michael Clayton" concluded with Clooney similarly in a car, but fully lit, finally unburdened. Here, with dark gray hair and a sinewy frame, he's again downcast, troubled and full of doubt. He's cast off all hint of his most abundant characteristic: charm. For Jack, every intimacy carries a threat. The most memorable shot in a film full of exquisite camera work from Corbijn and cinematographer Martin Ruhe is from Jack's perspective as Clara's hands clasp over his eyes a game of "Guess who?" that feels momentarily terrifying. Corbijn has said he views "The American" as a kind of Western, and he positions Sergio Leone's "Once Upon a Time in the West" in the background of one scene. But the film has more of a film noir feeling of claustrophobic comeuppance. It has if we are kind some of the elegiac mystery of Antonioni's "The Passenger" and some of the stoicism of a Jean-Pierre Melville policier. That "The American" is beautiful to look at is unquestionable; Corbijn's formal mastery is something to behold. What is finally slightly disappointing in the film is the familiarity of its story: another tale of "one last job." It's difficult not to want Corbijn's mournful seriousness to ease up a bit. But "The American" is nevertheless transfixing in its grace. DIVERSIONS DearAbby: I have been married to my second husband, "Greg," for 3 1/2 years. Before we married, Greg took me out on dates, we had wonderful conversations and a satisfying sex life. Now I spend every weekend cleaning, and when I clean the upstairs, Greg goes downstairs. If I clean downstairs, he goes upstairs. He says he loves me, but it seems we have become more like roommates than husband and wife. Greg buys big-ticket items (big-screen TVand a computer, for example) without telling me. In fact, he never discusses anything with me. Do you think he married me only to cook and clean for him? Before you suggest counseling, let me point out one more thing: Greg is a psychologist. Searching for Normal in Pennsylvania DearSearching: It appears you married a man who was terrific at sales and poor on follow-through. Because someone is a psychologist does not automatically make that person a good spouse, or parent or even a particularly effective therapist. You two have a serious communication problem. You need to tell him how you feel, and he needs to tell you why he's avoiding you and won't allow you to have a voice in "big" decisions. And I am suggesting counseling, but not with anyone with whom your husband is affiliated in business. DearAbby: I have been going out with an older man for a year and a half. He is very nice and makes me laugh. He has a lot of faults, but I can tolerate them except for one he cheated on both of his ex-wives. He has had affairs with his friends'wives, his employees and his customers. He even told me he slept with another woman the night before his wedding to his second wife. He likes to flirt, and women like him because he has a great sense of humor. I love his company and we get along well most of the time. He says he's sorry for his past behavior, but I'm not convinced he really is. I'm afraid he will do the same with me if he has the chance. I have spoken to him about my concerns. He says he is "different" now. I have been hurt by men before, and I really don't want to have another emotional dis aster. What can he do to ga in my trust? Hesitant in Sa n Francis co Dear Hesitant: Probably nothing. Face it he's charming, witty and can't keep his zipper up. Recognize and enjoy him fo r who he is, but if you're looking for a lifetime commitment, he's not "the one. DearAbby: I was recent ly asked by a good friend to be one of his groomsmen a t his wedding. Of course, I accepted. His bachelor party was o n the Oregon coast, so I had to fly out for that a few month s before the wedding. The ce remony is in St. Louis, so I have to journey there as well. For both events I hav e had to pay for travel, accom modations, etc. I spent $20 0 for the tuxedo rental for the wedding as well as addition al expenses. By the end of it I'll have spent more than $1,000. Must I still buy my friend a wedding gift? Big Spender in Pa lo Alto, Cal if. DearBig Spender: The answer is yes but it doesn 't have to be expensive. According to Emily Post, among the basic responsibi lities of all adult attendants is to "contribute to attendants group gifts to the bride and groom (and usually, give an individual gift as well)."

Once lighthearted courtship has become wedded drudgery Dear Abby Focus Features George Clooney stars as Jack in The American.' Clooney's The American' is both bleak and transfixing Movie Review Film Title' Rating: R (violence, sexual content and nudity) Running time: 105 minutes Review: (of 4) Associated PressLOS ANGELES A mazon.com Inc. is talking w ith major media companies a bout offering unlimited v iews of older TVshows and m ovies online, as it struggles t o stay relevant to consumers f locking to Apple Inc.'s i Tunes a la carte store and N etflix Inc.'s all-you-can-eat s ubscription plan. Amazon has approached s everal companies, including V iacom Inc., Time Warner I nc., and Sony Corp., three p eople familiar with the matt er said Tuesday. They r equested anonymity because t he talks are ongoing. The talks are at an early s tage and focus on offering T Vshows and movies that h ave already been available o n home video. Amazon intends to link the service to its Amazon Prime membership, a $79 per year plan that gives customers discounted shipping costs. But some media companies are averse to having their offerings potentially perceived as freebies, another person said. Aspokesman for Amazon, which is based in Seattle, said the company would not speculate on future business deals. News of the talks emerged in The Wall Street Journal, a day before Apple is expected to announce a new TVoffering and a revamped iTunes. An Apple spokesman also declined to comment. Apple has also been talking with several media companies and is nearing a deal to offer recently aired TV shows from The Walt Disney Co.'s ABC and News Corp.'s Fox for 99 cents. The shows could be downloaded but would expire 48 hours after purchase. They are intended for fans who want to catch up on shows even on airplanes or other places without wireless Internet service. Apple is also expected to cut the price of its Apple TV device. Pre-empting the move, Roku Inc., whose settop box allows Netflix subscribers to watch older movies and TVshows, cut the prices of its basic highdef device by $30 to $69.99.

LIVING 10B PAGE News-Sun Friday, September 3, 2010Common PracticesIslam is a diverse faith practiced in d ifferent ways by Muslims across the g lobe. However, some commonalities e xist across the spectrum. Muslims are e ncouraged to read the Quran espec ially during the holy month of R amadan, and the Hadith. Most pract icing Muslims offer Salat, or pres cribed prayer, five times a day at pres cribed intervals. Both men and w omen are encouraged to dress mode stly and generally pray in either separ ate rows, sections or rooms. Muslims v iew pork and pork products as u nclean and try to stay clear. And, w hether a Muslim regularly attends F riday worship services or worships at h ome, most Muslims rejoice at the end o f the 30 day Ramadan fast, which c ulminates in a three-day festival, Eid u l-Fitr "the Feast of Fast Breaking."Five PillarsThe religion of Islam is grounded o n Five Pillars:Declaration of Faith (Shahadah): E very Muslim states the phrase "There i s no God but (Allah) and Muhammad i s the messenger of God."Prayer (Salat): Muslims pray five t imes a day facing Mecca at dawn, a t noon, in mid-afternoon, after sunset a nd at nightfall. The prayers are usuall y spoken in Arabic and consist of a s eries of prostrations.Almsgiving (Zakat): Almsgiving c an be in the form of money or food, b ut Muslims are required to donate as a form of "social responsibility and s ervice to God." It is usually 2.5 perc ent of a person's wealth.Fasting (Sawm): During the ninth m onth of the lunar year, Ramadan, M uslims are required to abstain from f ood, drink, tobacco, chewing gum a nd sexual relations from sunrise to s unset.Pilgrimage (Hajj): At least one pilg rimage to Mecca Islam's holiest c ity, located in Saudi Arabia is r equired of all Muslims who are physi cally and financially able to take the t rip during their lifetime.Denominations Like Christianity, Judaism and m any other faiths, Islam has many d enominations. As with other faiths, p ractices within each denomination v ary widely depending on historical, c ultural and geo-political influences. M any Muslims do not affiliate with a d enomination at all and instead just r efer to themselves as "Muslim." Sunni:More than 80 percent of M uslims are Sunni, making it Islam's l argest group. Sunnis believe God did n ot name a leader to succeed the P rophet Muhammad after his death a nd that the first four religious leaders e lected by the newly formed religious c ommunity were the rightful success ors.Shiites:Islam's second largest d enomination. Shiites believe the leade rship following the prophet's death r ightfully passed to Ali, Muhammad's c ousin and son-in-law, and succession w ould continue through familial conn ection.Nation of Islam:Apredominately A frican-American religious organizat ion with about 100,000 members that b lends some traditional Islamic beliefs a nd practices with a black empowerm ent and a racial separatist approach t o the faith. Progressive Muslims:Asmall but growing liberal movement in Islam that focuses on individualist interpretation of religious scripture, interfaith dialogue and gender equality in prayer, leadership and observance. Islamic feminism, which is concerned with the role of women in Islam, is often closely aligned with the movement's key thrusts. Sufi: Adherents focus on a mystical and ascetic approach to Islam. Sufis seek divine understanding through a direct and personal connection to God.Wahhabism:ASunni Islamic sect that dominates religious practice in Saudi Arabia and advocates a literalist approach to Islam. Terms to KnowAllah (ah-lah):The Arabic word for God.Eid ul-Fitr (eed al-fitter):"the Feast of Fast Breaking," a three-day celebration that marks the end of the Ramadan 30 day fast.Hadith (ha-deeth):The reported sayings and deeds of Prophet Muhammad recorded by followers passed down and over the centuries. Hijab (hee-jab):Means "cover" or "curtain." This is a reference to the modest style of dress as proscribed in the Quran. Muslims interpret hijab in varying ways. Most Muslim women will wear a headscarf when praying or entering a mosque. Some wear a headscarf in public, others steer clear of revealing clothing, and still others cover completely with flowing robes known as burqas or niqab. Imam (ee-mahm):The religious leader in Muslim communities. An imam's position of importance and influence varies depending on denomination and community.Jihad (gee-had):Though it translates to "struggle," some interpret it as an internal battle to maintain the faith and others interpret as holy war. Jummah (joo-mah):Congregational prayer held on Friday Madrasah (mah-drah-sah):The Arabic word for school and can include both religious and secular institutions. Masjid (mas-jeed) or mosque:An Islamic house of worship. Mecca:The holiest city in Islam, located in Saudi Arabia. When Muslims pray they face Mecca and can use a compass to find its directio n. Mullah (muh-lah):An Islamic scholar versed in traditions, sharia an d theology. Quran (ko-rahn):The central Islamic holy text. Muslims believe th e angel Jibril (Gabriel) began his revel ations to the prophet Muhammad and these revelations became the Quran.Ramadan (rah-ma-dahn):The ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar when many Muslims believe th e Quran was revealed to the prophet Muhammad. Zakat (za-kot):Stands for purific ation; Muslims give up a portion of their wealth in excess of what is need ed for sustenance to "purify" what they retain.McClatchy Newspapers correspondent Hannah Allam contributed to this repor t. Understanding IslamWith more than a billion followers, Islam is one of the largest religions in the world, yet man y misconceptions persist about Muslims, their practices and their faith. slam was founded in seventh century Arabia and shares many teachings with Judaism and Christianity. Today the world's second largest religion, with 1.5 billion adherents, Islam is a culturally diverse and multifaceted faith. Whirling dervishes in Turkey practice an ancient art of meditative spinning, while Muslim hip-hop groups such as Native Deen speak to a more modern aesthetic. Egyptian bloggers and Malaysian religious scholars might all consider themselves Muslims, yet they could spend hours debating how to express devotion and adapt to 21st century global culture. Islam translates from the Arabic for "submission to God," and the religion's followers are known as Muslims, or "ones who submit to God." Most American Muslims follow a mainstream and moderate version of the faith, are middle class, educated and live near urban centers where mosques have stood for generations. Fewer than 10 percent of Muslims are Arabs, and roughly a quarter of Muslims in the United States are native-born African Americans. There are more than 2.5 million and perhaps as many as 6 million American Muslims, according to different research groups. Islam has been a part of the American fabric for centuries, arriving with African explorers on early expeditions and later with Africans who came to the Americas either as free blacks or slaves. Muslim women often express pride that one of their faith's key figures was Khadijah, the Prophet Muhammad's first wife, a well educated and wealthy businesswoman. Scholars argue that early Muslim societies granted women greater financial and property rights than their counterparts of other faiths, and lament that some of those rights have been curtailed in modern times by ultra-conservative groups in conflict-ridden parts of the Islamic world. Similarly narrow interpretations of Islam such as those promoted by alQaida, the Islamist terror network, and the Taliban, the hardline Islamist movement in Afghanistan have been used to justify the repression of women and assault against civilians in several countries. The headline-grabbing violence of such groups have left ordinary Muslims in an uneasy position in the West, where they've experienced hate crimes, legal challenges to the building of mosques and other results of an anti-Muslim backlash. The vast majority of Muslim groups in the West and abroad have rejected terrorist attacks as a distortion of their religion and point to Islam as a faith built primarily upon principles of peace.BYHALIMAHABDULLAHMcClatchy Newspapers DAVID P.
