"I do it pretty religiously," said Whitmore, 25, a gym train er in London. He first started drinking milk after exercise about 1 0 years ago when he couldn't afford expensive supplements or protein shakes. "Milk helps me recover faster and I feel gre at afterwards," he said. "And now, I hate to train without it." Researchers are giving scientific support to a vie w that Whitmore vouches for from experienc e: that milk may be just as good or even be tter than sports drinks for serious athlet es recovering from exercise. The heal th benefits of milk which has carboh ydrates, electrolytes, calcium and vit amin D have long been establishe d. But for athletes, milk also contains t he two proteins best for rebuilding mu scles: casein and whey. Muscles get damaged after an inten se bout of aerobic exercise like runnin g, playing football, or cycling. The case in and whey proteins in milk are precise ly what the body needs to regenerate mu scles fast. Glenys Jones, a nutritionist at Britain 's Medical Research Council, said milk 's protein content makes it an ideal post-exe rcise drink. "Milk provides the buildin g blocks for what you need to build new mu scles," said Jones, who has no ties to the dai ry industry. Milk does a body good, especially athletes See MILK, page 9A Photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY (From left to right) Scott Maxon, of WWOJ; Mike Henry, of the Highlands Today; George Hensley, the mayor of Sebring; Larry Moore, of Moore Performing Arts; and Vickie Jones, of the News-Sun were the Heartland Idol judges Thursday. By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY email@example.comSEBRIING Walking up shaky steps to the small stage and turning to face the audience filling the Historic Circle every Thursday night takes some courage. Performing, however, takes more than moxie. Singing, while as natural as dancing, takes innate skill to please and training to perfect. It also takes planning ahead. To do well, a Heartland Idol competitor should keep this in mind. Just as important, however, is to relax and have fun. Of course, that's easier said than done. During the qualifying round for juniors and teens on Thursday, Idol judges had excellent advice suitable for performers of all ages. Judge Larry More, who owns and operates More Performing Arts, tells contestants, "Don't be afraid. Just sing. Let it out. Don't let nerves take over, hit the stage and own it." More added that preparation is essential to get over nervousness. "Get in front of a mirror. Really, really practice so you can let go and get control of the shaky voice," he said. "Ashaky voice only makes you even more nervous." It is easiest to maintain control and a sense of fun with the correct song choice. In fact, judge Vickie Jones emphasized the point. "Song choice, song Judges offer advice to Idol hopefuls News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY Everyone know what Abigail Smith was going to sing as soon as she walked on stage last Thursday.

According to Road and Brid ge Director Kyle Green, the plant is und er its regulated hours and has already pr oduced more material than last year. During a routine budget amendme nt request, it was pointed out that Ro ad and Bridge had to move an addition al $649,260 in order to pay for mo re asphalt than originally anticipated. Green told commissioners that t he funds were already budgeted f or asphalt, but the plant was keeping u p with needs so that the revenue could g o to the plant instead of private industry Green interpreted that to mean th at the revenue for the asphalt plant h as gone up more than expected. "We anticipated 25 tons for the yea r, and so far we have produced 32.5 to almost 33 tons this year. This budg et amendment is to pay for the ext ra asphalt the plant has produced for Ro ad and Bridge," Green said. The plant has operated just 180 hou rs this year so far, well under the 450 re gulated limit set by the Flori da Department of Environment Protectio n. Green stated that Road and Brid ge was paying an estimated $72.14 per to n, and that includes all the expense s, including the fuel, materials and insu rance at the plant. Questions were raised by citize ns concerning the competitiveness of t he production of asphalt as compared to purchasing it from a private vendor. "Our current bid is at $75 per ton ," Green said.

Special to the News-SunAVON PARK South Florida Community College will hold a Constitution and Citizenship Day celebration at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 16 in the SFCC University Center Auditorium. Special guest speaker, Circuit Court Judge Peter Estrada will speak about the role the U.S. Constitution plays in the judicial system. Constitution and Citizenship Day was started by U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd in 2005, when he inserted a provision into a spending bill that required all educational institutions that received federal funds to commemorate the signing of the U.S. Constitution on Sept. 17. "I have such reverence for the Constitution, and it is always so exciting for me to demonstrate to my students how often it is still debated," said Pamela Hansen, political science professor, SFCC. "There are very few issues today that do not warrant reference to the Constitution. Even if it had not been part of a federal mandate, it is certainly appropriate to cel ebrate and discuss this gre at document." For more information, co ntact Hansen at 784-7286.

That's t he key," she said. "It d oesn't matter if it is your f avorite song or singer, if y ou pick something out of y our range, you won't do w ell." For example, "The C limb" by Miley Cyrus has n ot worked well for most of t he people who have sung it and a lot of contestants h ave sung it. Think fresh. Be creative. B e realistic. Two other points are as i mportant: Don't give up, a nd prepare a well-rounded p erformance. There are multiple qualif ying rounds. When singers d on't make the cut the first t ime, they shouldn't b ecome discouraged or w alk off in a huff. Listen to the judges' f eedback and act on it. Just because a person d oesn't get picked the first t ime, doesn't mean he or she won't get picked later. Idol scoring assigns up to 15 points for singing; 10 points for stage presence; and 5 points for costume. Judge Mike Henry told contestants, "You don't know how close the scores are. Five points could cost you." In other words, often what makes the difference between equal singers is the extra effort one took to match his or her wardrobe to the song, or the way one singer better engaged the audience using movement and eye contact. Some better singers have not made the cut because good singers created an entire package and sold it. Personality and pizzazz count. More reminds contestants that this is a competition. That means making the effort and persevering. "Keep trying," he said, "I encourage (everyone) to try again." For example, in the second qualifying junior round, three of the contestants made the cut who had not the week before. Several of the contestants who were selected to move forward this year were not successful in the 2009 Idol competition. Remember the audience is not an enemy. They want contestants to do well and are rooting for each performer. Finally, this is a talent competition, not brain surgery. No one's life is at stake although admittedly it can feel like that when the spotlight is on. So, pick the best song for your voice; practice; dress the part; don't take comments personally; and try and try again. Most of all enjoy the experience and pass that fun on.

The letter was addressed and presented to Janice Maccarthy, a member of the county's planning department. According to Board Chairman Don Bates, Highlands County was one of 205 counties that surpassed its 2000 Census participation rate out of 3,066 nationwide. Bates also stated Maccarthy headed up the county's efforts to encourage the public to participate, and was part of the success of the local program. "Your commitment to motivate the public to complete and return the census form will have a lasting impact," said the letter sign ed by George Grandy Jr., the Atlanta region al director of the Census Bureau. "Highlands County really pulled togeth er on this," Maccarthy said while accepting t he letter. "The 2010 Census data will aid your com munity and government in making strateg ically and fiscally sound decisions to spur an d sustain economic development and growt h, and improve the quality of life in every neig hborhood," the letter stated.

G ood news appears to be coming s oon on one of the l ast remaining f ronts of the Cold W ar, with signals c oming out of W ashington in the l ast couple weeks t hat President O bama may order s ome travel restrict ions dropped for A mericans wanting t o visit Cuba.The plan currently being f loated wouldn't come close t o lifting the nearly half-cent ury-old embargo on the c ommunist nation, but it w ould make it far easier for s tudents, academics and r esearchers to get to the c ountry 90 miles away from F lorida. Essentially the move w ould restore policies in p lace during the early years o f Bill Clinton's administrat ion, when more "people-top eople" contacts were being e ncouraged as a way polic ymakers here hoped, at least for Cubans to interact with A mericans, learn a little more a bout freedom and see why o ur way of life really isn't so b ad. It was a good idea then, a nd it remains a good idea t oday. Moreover, this is absolutely the proper moment to be considering it. Shortly after being inaugurated, Obama lifted some restrictions on travel for Cuban-Americans who still had relatives living on the island, and made it easier for them to send money home to support them. When he did that, his administration indicated they wanted to take other steps, but would hold off until they saw some kind of positive, reciprocal gesture from a Cuban government that still restricted freedoms, locked up dissidents and tightly controlled the nation's economy by keeping the vast majority of businesses under state ownership. Slowly but surely, dictator Raul Castro's government has shown a willingness to occasionally engage last year he conceded that the policies toward America championed for 50 years by him and his brother Fidel "could be wrong." And not only that, but he also made some of the changes the U.S. had hoped to see. In the last year he's liberalized the economy somewhat, if still not anywhere close to enough. More importantly, he's made some significant moves on the human rights front. The government there pledged earlier this summer to release the last 52 political prisoners still being held from the regime's last largescale crackdown on dissidents in 2003. So far 32 have been let out of prison, with most electing to leave the country altogether. They've also allowed a public protest from the mother of a prominent dissident who died in prison after thwarting her previous attempts. Another dissident the ailing son of a prominent leader in the 1959 revolution that brought Fidel Castro to power just received permission to get necessary medical treatment in the U.S., no small concession from a government fiercely proud of its own medical community. Granted, those three steps aren't conclusive there are, in fact, still indications that other dissidents are still being harassed or temporarily detained but they are at least progress. In all the recent cases, it has been Cuba's Catholic Church that has been urging the government along toward better behavior. Now, critics of any change here will surely argue that the brothers Castro are solely interested in getting America to loosen any restrictions simply because it could ease the flow of U.S. dollars into their economy. Perhaps so, though it's hard to see how they're strengthened in the long run by their people getting exposed to more Americans, more free thinking, more overseas goods. If anything, the Cuban populace is less likely to embrace a status quo of isolation, oppression and privation when they see the alternatives. Essentially that's why the U.S. has pursued a policy of "constructive engagement" in other countries like China that are hardly shining beacons of democracy. Rep. Emanuel Cleaver, DMo., is a proponent of the current plan and of lifting the trade embargo. He told Fox News earlier this month, "This is a way to infiltrate Cuba and change the system gradually. ... Whether they are going in as farmers selling their goods or as tourists, the better off Cubans will be." Indeed, the Taunton Daily Gazette has long argued the trade restrictions ought to be lifted as well. They don't work and never have. All they've done is make it more difficult for everyday folks to get goods, leaving them dependent on their government to provide their food and other basic needs. Just what you want to encourage if you hope to topple a so-called socialist paradise, right? No, from where we sit, the benefits to Americans, to the Cuban people, to local farmers eager to sell their grain to a nation that needs it, and to companies like Caterpillar that can sell equipment in a place in desperate need of a modern infrastructure all far outweigh any warm feelings the remaining cold warriors out there get from a largely symbolic embargo. But loosening the travel restrictions is a necessary first step here, one that will have to be met by other positive steps from the Castro government. If that occurs, then both sides should continue to work to slowly dismantle a half-century worth of outdated policies. Doing so is in both our interests. An editorial from the Taunton (Mass.) Gazette.

Constitution and the laws a nd rules laid down by our C onstitution and Founding Fathers. O ur criminal justice system and law m akers as they are, comprised these l aws and rules to protect the people a nd I will quote, "Under the U.S. s ystem of justice (all defendants are c onsidered innocent until proven g uilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.") The prosecution must prove b eyond a shadow of a doubt that any p erson charged actually committed t he crime and was in the proper state o f mind to know the end results of t he crime. Not making any excuses f or myself or anyone else, but we h ave so many vets with P.T.S.D. ( Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) that a re not receiving proper care and the l aw enforcement agencies are not, as I understand it, being given proper t raining to handle those particular p eople. For one: I am a victim of t hese circumstances and as I was t old by the arresting officer, "Well, if i t's that bad, you should have your m edicine with you," as he made the c uffs tighter. I was arrested last month on a seco nd degree misdemeanor charge, no v iolence, drugs, or anything of that n ature. At that time, I was vice presid ent of a home owners association, a s well as being the safety and n eighborhood watch officer. As soon a s some of the people in our commun ity saw this notice in the paper, the p resident of the association (who w as out of state for the summer) was c alled and notified. In a matter of h ours I was called by him and told it w ould be in the best interests of the c ommunity and board if I resigned a ll my positions, which I did. Now I ask? Is this a democratic s ociety we live in, or is it as has b een forecast by many learned men i t is coming to a have or have not s ociety. The laws concerning guilty o r not guilty seem to have been t hrown out the window. What's n ext? Wake up people! Alot worse c ould happen to you and you will be s tanding around saying why didn't I w ake up long ago and start voting s ome of these lifelong positions out? I was also charged $20 for canteen f unds at the jail and never even got a g lass of water. I was there four hours a nd am a diabetic. If people don't wake up, this is what's going to happen. I only write this to clear my mind and hopefully wake up some others. Gary E.

Great food, friendliest staff around ... and it's about time. Jack Hegarty SebringCritical balance needed for good governmentEditor: During 50 years as a lawyer I have served as campaign manager for a Democratic state representative, a speech writer for a Republican U.S. Congressman and Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate, a legal advisor to an Ambassador and a county attorney for a county commission. As such I have been involved in government on all levels Federal, State and local and have seen both good government and misguided government in action and learned to tell the difference. Good government requires a critical balance be maintained between competing factions and points of view. Vigorous disagreement and the airing of difference has been one of the hallmarks of our healthy democracy, with give and take and sensible compromise resulting in beneficial legislation and policies. Obdurate obstructionism, such as we have witnessed in our Congress for the last several years, serves no positive purpose except to paralyze government and lead people to the erroneous conclusion that our system is broken. In their effort to make Obama and the Congress look bad for the last two years, the Republican party has pursued such a course of conduct, intent only on creating issues for campaigning purposes without regard to the needs of the people and the gravity of the crisis they have fomented and prolonged. Arguing for bipartisanism while consistently refusing to participate in any realistic attempt to achieve compromise, arguing for capitulation as the price of cooperation and then blandly contending that the Democrats have "controlled" Congress for the last four years is the worst kind of dissembling. With the inability to pass any legislation over a threatened filibuster without 60 votes, and faced with a consistent Republican refusal to do other than vote No unless some crippling amendments are agreed to, and to now argue that the Democrats controlled Congress is the height of insincerity and deceit. The country and its citizens deserve better. Until we restore the critical balance and the party out of power resumes the role of loyal opposition rather than seeking to win at any cost, we can expect little progress toward resolving some of our nation's problems.

She said sports drinks mainly replace lost carbohydrates and electrolytes, and don't usually have the necessary nutrients for muscles to regenerate themselves. Experts have generally been divided over whether milk outperforms sports drinks. Dairy producers have been eager to break into the multibillion-dollar market, often sponsoring research into milk's athletic benefits that some call biased. So the debate continues, but milk has been getting a lot of attention. In a study published in the journal Applied Physiology, Nutrition and Metabolism in June, researchers found people who drank milk after training were able to exercise longer in their next session than people who had sports drinks or water. "It's the form of the carbohydrate and the nutrients in milk that is most important," said Emma Cockburn, a lecturer in sports coaching at Northumbria University in northeast England who led the study, which was partially paid for by the dairy industry. Cockburn advised athletes to drink milk immediately after working out. "The damage caused by exercise leads to a breakdown of the protein structures in your muscles, but that doesn't happen until 24 to 48 hours later," she said. If athletes drink milk right after training, then by the time it is digested, the milk's nutrients are ready to be absorbed by the muscles that have been hurt. Drinking milk also may help athletes recover quicker if they are performing multiple times in a day. For people who can't stomach the idea of plain milk, experts recommend adding some chocolate or other artificial flavor. At the Beijing Olympics, sixtime gold medallist Michael Phelps regularly downed a flavored milk drink in between races. Scientists at Loughborough University have found low-fat milk is better than sports drinks for replacing fluids lost during exercise. Scientists suspect there may be two reasons for that. Not only does milk have a lot of electrolytes, but it is emptied from the stomach more slowly than sports drinks, keeping the body hydrated for longer. Though the vitamins and proteins found in milk are present in soy milk or dietary supplements, experts say milk has better proportions of those nutrients. Milk also may help athletes shed fat and build muscle. In a small Canadian study, experts found women who drank milk after lifting weights gained about 4.4 pounds (2 kilos) of muscle and lost about the same amount of body fat. Women who drank sports drinks put on about 3.3 pounds (1.5 kilos) of muscle but didn't lose any body fat. "It may be that some of the components of milk the protein, the vitamin D and the calcium act in a synergistic fashion to promote fat loss," said Stuart Phillips, a professor of kinesiology at McMaster University who led the research. Phillips has advised the Canadian Olympic Association about milk and the dairy industry paid for part of his research. But some experts warned that drinking milk after exercise isn't for everyone. Catherine Collins, a spokeswoman for the British Dietetic Association and a dietician at London's St. George's Trust, said while milk may be beneficial for elite athletes who burn thousands of calories a day during their intensive training, occasional gym-goers may be better off drinking sports drinks or plain water. "If you're just a gym bunny trying to lose a bit of weight, water is probably sufficient after exercise," she said, warning that chocolate milk in particular could add unwanted calories. At the Vancouver Olympics, dairy farmers trucked in about 85,000 extra quarts (80,000 liters) of chocolate milk. Canadian athletes won a record-setting 14 gold medals. "I don't know if the milk helped, but it can't have hurt," Phillips said. Still, even those who promote milk as a recovery drink say it cannot entirely replace sports drinks. Because it is harder to digest, people should only drink milk after they are finished exercising, not during. In comparison, sports drinks like Gatorade have easily digestible sugars so athletes can chug it during events to get an instant boost. www.newssun.comNews-SunWednesday, September 8, 2010Page 9A 515 US 27 N.

Green took over supervision of the plant in April after citizen outcry about the money it was losing forced county administration to make some changes in the way the plant operated.

DOUG FERGUSON Associated PressNEWYORK Tiger W oods is going to the Ryder C up as a captain's pick with h is 71 victories and 14 m ajors. So is 21-year-old Rickie F owler, who has never won a nything at all. Corey Pavin made an obvio us choice and a surprising o ne Tuesday morning at the N ew York Stock Exchange w hen he added Woods and F lower, along with former m ajor champions Zach J ohnson and Stewart Cink, to a n American team that will t ry to retain the cup. The Ryder Cup is Oct. 1-3 a t the Celtic Manor in Wales. The United States won two y ears ago at Valhalla, and w ill try to win for the first t ime overseas since 1993 at T he Belfry. This will be the sixth R yder Cup team for Woods, b ut the first in which he n eeded to be picked. Woods had finished first in t he standings every time, i ncluding in 2008 when he s pent the second half of the year recovering from knee surgery. The eight Americans who qualified after the PGA Championship were Phil Mickelson, Hunter Mahan, Steve Stricker, Jim Furyk, Matt Kuchar, Bubba Watson, Dustin Johnson and Jeff Overton. Cink made his fifth consecutive team, while Johnson is playing for the second time. The final selection and Pavin's most difficult went to Fowler, the first PGA Tour rookie to make the U.S. team. While the former Oklahoma State star has three runner-up finishes in his 11 months as a pro, he is the first American captain's pick to have never won. Then again, no one else stood out over the last three weeks. In the final tournament before Pavin's picks, none of the 14 players on the captain's short list finished among the top 10. According to people with knowledge of the decision, the final selection came down to Fowler and big-hitting J.B. Holmes, who tied for 11th at the TPC Boston. Among those left off were Anthony Kim, who missed three months this summer with thumb surgery and was bumped out of the top eight in the final qualifying tournament; former U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover and Charley Hoffman, who closed with a 62 on Monday to win the Deutsche Bank Championship. Fowler's selection gives the Americans five Ryder Cup rookies, and another player without a PGATour victory. Among the eight who qualified for the team was Overton, winless in his five years on tour. Woods, who retained the No. 1 world ranking for the 274th consecutive week Monday at the Deutsche Bank Championship, became an obvious selection once he said at the PGA Championship that he wanted to be part of the team. He has been accused of being indifferent toward the Ryder Cup, and his career record of 10-13-2 is the one flaw in an impeccable career inside the ropes. He will be going to Wales on his own his divorce was approved two weeks ago and no longer cutting such an invicinble figure. Woods has failed to win since returning at the Masters, although he appears headed in the right direction. He posted three rounds in the 60s at the Deutsche Ban k Championship for the fir st time all year. It was on Labor Day forty y ears ago, that family, f riends, and players gathered i n New York City to pay t heir respects to Vince L ombardi. The legendary football c oach was only fifty-seven y ears old, but colon cancer f elled the NFLicon. Sadly his stubborn refusal t o see a doctor caused him t o ignore symptoms and l ikely cost him his life. Just ten weeks after the d iagnosis, the man that led G reen Bay to five champio nships, including the first t wo Super Bowls was dead. As the NFLkicks off its s eason tomorrow, it is tough t o imagine Lombardi fitting i n. Would the former member o f Fordham University's f amous "Seven Blocks of G ranite" be able to deal with a gents? Can you imagine that f amiliar figure in the camelh air coat and hat waiting for F avre to show up for traini ng camp? Football fans my age can s till see those linemen Jerry K ramer and Fuzzy Thurston l eading the way for Paul H ornung or Jim Taylor on t hat famous Green Bay s weep. In that cost-conscious era, H ornung served as the t eam's kicker and Kramer a lso kicked if Hornung was h urt. Despite forty years having p assed, Lombardi is still p art of America. This month a play about L ombardi will open on B roadway.

By DAN HOEHNE firstname.lastname@example.orgBaseball talent is apparently widespread among the youth of the Heartland, with the Dixie Ozone World Series Championship team of Sebring being joined by another area youth team winning its'second straight tournament. The Seminole Warriors, an 11-U travel team made up of Highlands County kids, a proving a powerful force on the tournament circuit. The team cruised to the title of the Ultimate Florida Championship tournament at Disney's ESPN Wide World of Sports the weekend of August 13, going 4-0 and averaging 11.5 runs per game. At this past weekend's USSSAWorth Challenge in Osceola, the team did hit a bump in the road. After getting past the Kissimmee Braves by a 7-2 score, the Winter Springs Matrix Black edged past the Warriors, 5-4. But the team rebounded strongly, posting a 9-1 win over the 3H Orlando Thunder and then powering past the Clermont Bonecrushers, 9-3, to claim the championship. For winning the tournament, the team walked away with their well-earned tr ophies and helped themselv e, equipment wise, by earning a collection of Worth battin g helmets for the entire team. "We set the bar high for t he season by bringing home t he championships from the fir st two tournaments we play ed in," head coach Micha el Warner said. While winnin g is fun, it is not our on ly focus, we strive to impro ve every time we play." The team's next tourn ament is in Sarasota the wee kend of Sept. 18-19. "This is a special group of kids with great talent. The se boys have a great work eth ic and it shows.," Warner sai d. "Our ultimate goal is to ta ke this group of ball players to Cooperstown next year." Warriors win another one Our ultimate goal is to take this group of ba ll players to Cooperstown next year.'MICHAELWARNER Warriors head coach Tiger, Fowler among Ryder Cup picks MCTpho to Rickie Fowler was somewhat of a surprise as a Ryder Cup selection by U.S. Captain Corey Pavin. See RYDER, p a g e 3B News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHN E With the return of their entire roster from last season, things could be looking up for Kayla Selander and the Heartland Christian volleyball team. By DAN HOEHNE email@example.comIn her third year at the helm of the Lady Crusaders, Heartland Christian head coach Shannon Cleveland is starting to see some past drawbacks turn into benefits. "When I first got here, so many players were so young and inexperienced," she said. "Now, three years later, they're still here and I have high expectations." Those expectations got off to a good start last Tuesday as the team opened the season with a dominating win over Life Christian by 25-10, 25-14 and 25-14 scores. But with their first home game last Friday, the Crusaders fell in a match Cleveland knows they should have won against District 7-1Afoe Southland. "It was our first home game, so it was a bit distracting," Cleveland said. "We won a game 25-10 and the girls got real excited. But rather than refocusing that energy into their play, it set them back. That's something we'll have to improve on." Early season excitement got the better of them, but with the experience of this squad, should be quickly gotten past. Heartland Christian lost no players from last season due to graduation, bringing back all their main players with another year of experience under their belts. The three seniors that will be counted on for their veteran leadership are Carolyn Cwalinski, Kayla Kaszubowski and Rebekah Watts. Ellie Arnold is the lone junior on the squad and, as is usually the case with the Crusaders, the ages drop off from there. But though they may still be young, the experience is Crusaders start anew with familiar faces See HEARTLAND, page 3B

Lombardi and Judith Light from "Who's the Boss" will play his wife, Marie. The play is based on When Pride Still Mattered: ALife of Vince Lombardi by David Maraniss. The biography was published in 2000. NFLFilms is teaming with HBO to release a film on Lombardi later this year. ESPN is also said to be working on a movie about Lombardi. The mythical Lombardi seems very out-of-step with today's times, but the Lombardi in the biography may havemore in common with 2010 than one would think. Lombardi faced family issues that sadly sound much more like today than the 1950s and 1960s. His wife, Marie, struggled with depression during their ten years in Green Bay. She battled addictions to both alcohol and prescription medications. Packers like Bart Starr and Paul Hornung said they felt like they lost a father at Lombardi's funeral. Yet the coach struggled as a dad with his own son and daughter. As a youngster, Vince, Jr. helped out at the New York Giants training camp as his dad was the assistant coach. One day two players were grumbling about the Coach Lombardi and realized the young son was near enough to hear every word. "Ah, he's gotta find out one day his dad is an S.O.B." the player muttered to his teammate. Despite his reputation as an authoritarian, he was also known for an open mind in matters of race. African-American players like Willie Davis, Willie Wood, Herb Adderly, and Elijah Pitts were certainly key members of those championship teams. According to his biographer, when Lombardi became the coach of the Washington Redskins, he learned one of his players was a homosexual. He quickly made it clear that he would tolerate no mistreatment of the player. Perhaps some of that tolerance came from growing up Italian in the 1920s and 1930s. Maybe he felt enough prejudice directed his way that he was determined to be different. One quality that Lombardi had would be just as valuable in 2010, he was a great judge of people and a great psychologist. He knew when to push and he knew when to back off. At times, he told his players that the loss belonged to him because he was outcoached. Starr told Lombardi that the coach's tongue-lashing of the quarterback in practice made his teammate lose confidence in the field general. Lombardi stopped and when necessary met with his quarterback in private. Even forty years later, the myth looms very large. Yet, the man still makes for a great story too. It is safe to say that when the NFLseason opens this Thursday, Lombardi would recognize his game and thirty-two teams will strive mightily to win that trophy with the coach's name on it. Continued from 1B Lombardi legend lives on Europe's team has six R yder Cup rookies Italian b rothers Francesco and E doardo Molinari, Peter H anson, Rory McIlroy, Ross F isher and PGAchampion M artin Kayer along with L ee Westwood, Ian Poulter, P adraig Harrington, Luke D onald, Miguel Angel J imenez and U.S. Open c hampion Graeme M cDowell. Zach Johnson won the C olonial in May, and the form er Masters champion had b een coming on strong in r ecent weeks. He finished one shot out of t he playoff at the PGA C hampionship, and kept hims elf in the mix at the tour's playoff events. Cink, who won the British Open at Turnberry last year, has been making slow progress in recent months. Only two of the eight American players who made the team have experience playing the Ryder Cup overseas. Cink has played in England and Ireland, while Johnson's only Ryder Cup was in Ireland. "On the road, it's very different," Woods said. "You get booed a lot, you get jeered, and people say things they probably shouldn't say. I've had that experience and understand how to deal with it and make it a positive thing." Continued from 1B Ryder Cup shaping up s till there among the pair of s ophomores, Kayla Selander a nd Esther Arnold. "They were on the team w hen I got here," Cleveland s aid. "It's amazing to think t hey're still here and still just s ophomores." Among the younger playe rs, eighth grader Lacey H aake and seventh graders A nsley Selander and Christen P yles will lend support while g aining experience on the go. The team returns from a s eason just under the .500 m ark, in the middle of the d istrict standings. But with that team still i ntact and another new seas on upon them, bigger things c ould well be taking shape. "Sonrise, Southland and V ictory Christian are generally the top three teams," Cleveland said. "They're all tough, but I think we can play with any of them. With all the girls back, they know what to expect and what to do. I expect us to compete for the top three in district." The Lady Crusaders were out of district Tuesday night with a match at Moore Haven before returning to district play Thursday at home against City of Life.

Page 4BNews-SunWednesday, September 8, 2010www.newssun.com By Monte Dutton NASCAR This Week HAMPTON, Ga. NASCAR has actually had a hall of fame for almost 50 years. The National Motorsports Press Associations Hall of Fame, headquartered at Darlington (S.C.) Raceway, has voted in engine builder Waddell Wilson, journalist Tom Higgins and driver Dale Jarrett. All three were named on the required 65 percent of the ballots. Wilsons engines powered teams to 109 victories and three Cup championships. He won three Daytona 500s as a crew chief. Higgins covered NASCAR for 34 years at the Charlotte Observer. Jarrett, now an ABC/ESPN analyst, won 32 races and a championship in 1999. Jarrett won the Daytona 500 in 1993, 96 and 2000. Overrated Matt Kenseth scoffed at the merit of having momentum for the Chase. Ive been on both ends of it, he said. And Im not sure it matters that much. Its really what you do when you get to New Hampshire (first Chase race) all the way through Homestead (last). Kids do the funniest things While Hendrick Motorsports teammate Mark Martin was unveiling a paint scheme for four races next year (with Quaker State sponsorship), Jeff Gordon was showing off a special look on his No. 24 inspired by his 3-year-old daughter, Ella. The color combination will raise awareness for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Pessimism works Asked about preparation for the Atlanta race, points leader Kevin Harvick said simply, I think you just go out and race like youve tried some stuff today and it didnt work. Big numbers For the final time, after 51 seasons, Atlanta Motor Speedway hosted at least two Cup races (three in 1961). The Emory Healthcare 500 was AMS 95th 500mile race. No other track has held that many.

Jason White 765 Why are Nationwide Series races on road courses nearly as long as Sprint Cup races on road courses? So that they can last all day? Atlanta Motor Speedway will still have one annual race, but a schedule without two dates near the unofficial capital of the South seems strange. Its a good track, a fun track, even if not enough people ever seemed to notice. Most race fans dont live in cities. They may live near cities, but its hard to get city dwellers to take road trips, and AMS is a long way from downtown, particularly taking traffic into account. Pocono Raceway is no more than a 90-minute drive from New York City. It could be considered the New York track. Very few residents of the Big Apple make the trek to Pocono, and why should they, with so much entertainment and sports available via a short subway ride? Some city folks adore NASCAR, but many never develop the great American love affair with the automobile, simply because they seldom drive one. Automobile racing is much more popular in the rural areas and suburbs than in large cities. Only so much can be done about that. It will be interesting to see if the relative lack of drama regarding the Chase field affects Richmond attendance. Once individual races stood on their own merits. The intense hype regarding the Chase may have the almost subliminal effect of undermining the perceived importance of individual races.Whos hot: Discard two nishes of 25th or worse, and Tony Stewarts average nish is 5.11 (in nine of the past 11 races). ... No discarding is necessary to set Carl Edwards average at 5.0 over eight races.Whos not: Engine trouble relegated Denny Hamlin to dead last (43rd) at Atlanta, and he has only three top-10 nishes in his past 10 races. ... Mark Martins Chase hopes expired with a 21st-place showing.V E R S U SBodine came back to win the Camping World Truck Series race at Kentucky Speedway after an early spin. The spin occurred while racing with Busch, prompting Bodine to label him a dirty driver. I feel like Im a hard racer and an aggressive one, said Busch. I wouldnt call it dirty. The two trucks made no contact during the incident in question. NASCAR This Weeks Monte Dutton gives his take: I know turbulence is tough, but a driver cant appropriately accuse another of wrecking him if there was no contact between the two. Bodine won the race. That ought to be a reason to be graceful and sportsmanlike.John Clark/NASCAR This WeekOwner-driver Tony Stewart broke into the win column at Atlanta recently and has been on a hot streak of sorts. Stewart has one win, two poles and sits in fourth in the Cup points standings. The victory puts him in a prime position for the Chase.Fiery Stewart gets first win of season on eve of the ChaseBy Monte Dutton NASCAR This Week HAMPTON, Ga. Is Tony Stewart making the kind of late emergence that could win him a third Sprint Cup championship? Stewart, 39, won the Emory Healthcare 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway. His average finish in the past 11 races is 8.1. He finally broke into the winners column. After winning for the first time this year, Stewart actually said he felt better about this season fourth in points, one win, two poles than last season, where at this point he had 3,694 points (109 more than Kevin Harvicks total now) and three wins. Stewart led the points by 237 then. He trails Harvick by 283 now. Yet Stewart said after winning the Emory Healthcare 500 that a year ago, he was leading the points and headed downhill, while, this year, hes trailing but reeling in other contenders by leaps and bounds. I dont know if we have peaked, said Stewart. How do you know when youve peaked? I guess if youre winning every week, you feel like youre peaking to a certain degree. Its been a lot of little steps in the last 10 to 12 races. At this stage (in 2009), we were pointing downhill, and this year, I feel like we are pointing uphill. Statistics do show that the first two finishers in Sunday nights race are the most consistent in the Sprint Cup Series recently. Carl Edwards average finish over the past eight races is fifth, but Edwards hasnt yet won. Now Stewart has won. And he is hot. Nobodys really noticed it, but we have noticed it internally, he said. Its a much better feeling right now this time of year than it was a year ago. Really? We were on such a high, leading the points, and had won races already, Stewart insisted. Both Stewart and his team are flushed with success at the moment, and with the Chase for the Sprint Cup about to commence in two weeks, its not a bad place to be. John Clark/NASCAR This WeekThough Kevin Harvick, seen, at center, finished 33rd recently at Atlanta, he still holds the points lead going into the Chase for the Championship.

Best Supercar driver everMarcos Ambrose isnt just a two-time champion of Australias V8 Supercar Series. According to Aussie journalists in the magazine V8X, hes the best Supercar driver ever. Ambrose, a native of Launceston, Tasmania (the island is a part of Australia), won 28 races in addition to championships in 2003 and 2004. BestSupercardriverever Go back to the way it wasThis Week welcomes letters to the editor, but please be aware that we have room for only a few each week. Well do our best to select the best, but individual replies are impossible due to the bulk of mail received. Please do not send stamped and self-addressed envelopes with your letters, which should be addressed to: NASCAR This Week, The Gaston Gazette, P.O. Box 1538, Gastonia, N.C. 28053. Dear NASCAR This Week, I know that, without a shadow of a doubt, NASCAR is trying its best to get the fans more interested in the sport. They are off to a good start by letting the drivers somewhat take care of business in their own way. The thing that bothers me the most is, I think NASCAR should check into doing away with the Chase and give the drivers back the points system. To me, it just seems unfair to the rest of the drivers out there when the Chase starts and there are only 12 drivers that have a chance at being the champion. Where does that leave the other 31 drivers? I know the other drivers win money too, but being the champion means a lot, too: bragging rights, for one. To stop the point system to me was just plain crazy, and I think NASCAR is paying the price with less people in the crowds and a lot more of us at home not even bothering to watch the race. I think NASCAR needs to wise up before it is too late. Ginger Striker Front Royal, Va. The Chase creates a greater possibility that someone will win the championship whose season-long performance doesnt merit it. But without it, there would be less than 12 drivers with a chance at being the champion. If there were no Chase, Kevin Harvick would be close to wrapping up a title right now.

Students browsed the different club and activities SFCC offers including the Communications Club, Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, A rt Club, Anime/Gaming Club, and Brain Bowl. Fall Club Rush Special to the News-SunWAUCHULAPeace R iver Electric Cooperative ( PRECO), a membero wned utility headquart ered in Wauchula, Florida, p ractices that age-old a dage, "Don't put all your e ggs in one basket." This a dvice is based on the n otion that life is unpred ictable. What seems like a sure thing" today, may not b e tomorrow. That's why i t's best to spread risk over a range of options. PRECO's wholesale e nergy supplier, Seminole E lectric Cooperative, a pplies this concept to the p roduction of electricity. S eminole, based in Tampa, m ust make choices years in a dvance among fuel and t echnology options to best s upply the electricity to m eet consumer's current a nd future needs. These o ptions include coal, natur al gas, nuclear, fuel oil, r enewable energy, and purc hasing electrical energy f rom others when afforda ble. Seminole continues to d iversify its generation p ortfolio to protect cons umers from changing w orld fuel markets. Fuel d iversity provides a form o f insurance against price s pikes and events that w ould threaten electric s ervice reliability. For example, what if S eminole were to put "all i ts eggs in the natural gas b asket?" Amajor hurricane i n the Gulf of Mexico could t hreaten natural gas wells, c ausing gas prices to rise, o r cut off gas supply for w eeks, leaving Seminole u nable to provide enough e lectricity. Similarly, coal supply c an be threatened by labor s trikes, oil supply can be j eopardized by political t urmoil in oil producing r egions, and nuclear prod uction can be affected by r egulatory intervention. So o ver-reliance on any fuel c ould create a shortage that d ramatically increases the p rice of electricity or a ffects reliability. That's why Seminole u ses a mix of fuels. C urrently, their fuel mix i ncludes domestic coal (59 p ercent), natural gas (35 p ercent), renewable (4 perc ent), nuclear (one percent) a nd fuel oil (one percent). T he bulk of Seminole's f uels are from domestic s ources which supports our d omestic economy and j obs. Today, coal provides a s teady foundation for P RECO's power supply. As a principle source of fuel, c oal is domestic, abundant, r eadily available, afforda ble and its price is relat ively stable. More than 35 s tates have coal. Seminole b uys about 4 million tons a nnually in deep mines in I llinois, Kentucky, West V irginia and Pennsylvania. In recent years, coal has b een a target of environmental special-interest groups who have pressured our state and the federal government to enact expensive environmental legislation restricting carbon emissions. However, Seminole's coal plant near Palatka is one of the cleanest in the country. When Seminole built the Seminole Generating Station in 1984, it installed almost $250 million in pollution control equipment, followed by a $280 million environmental improvement project in 2009. Seminole is also seeking to expand its nuclear energy capacity. While environmental groups are raising concerns about carbon emissions from coal, natural gas and renewable biomass facilities, nuclear energy has essentially zero carbon or other emissions. While new nuclear units are expensive to build, they are one of the least expensive power sources to operate and should be a part of every utility's energy portfolio. Seminole has a small ownership in one Florida nuclear plant and is currently seeking to expand its nuclear diversity through partnering with other utilities. Like other sources of power, the expansion of nuclear energy is facing challenges, such as construction costs and waste disposal. Yet polls show that 74 percent of Americans favor the use of nuclear energy as one of the options to provide abundant, affordable energy. Seminole is a leader among Florida utilities in its use of renewable energy. PRECO, along with nine other Florida electric cooperatives served by Seminole, receives about 4 percent of its electricity from renewable energy sources. This is the highest percentage of any Florida electric utility. Seminole's renewable energy comes from a combination of municipal solid waste, landfill gas (methane), and wood biomass. Seminole is expanding its renewable resources even further through a new contract to receive electricity from a planned biomass plant that will produce electricity from sweet sorghum crops. In many States, hydroelectric and wind are prominent renewable power sources. Unfortunately, Florida is neither hilly enough nor windy enough to efficiently use hydro or wind to produce electricity. Solar power, the most expensive of renewable resources, is an option in some states. Ironically, in the "Sunshine State," due to extensive cloud cover, solar power is less efficient here and therefore even more expensive compared to other areas.

Kids need snacks, but not constant grazing. You need to make sure the snacks are healthy and are going to do them some good, nutritionally. If you give them the junk that they clamor for from watching too much TV, they will end up eating continually. It makes sense, if you think about it. When your children (or you for that matter) don't get the nutrition necessary, their bodies still crave those nutrients and will keep signaling that it's time to eat even after downing a bag of Doritos and drinking a whole liter of Pepsi. They might be temporarily full, but never satisfied because the body was overfed and undernourished and therefore still needed food (when I say that I mean REALfood). See why good nutrition is so important? This is how you stop the vicious cycle of constantly eating; junk doesn't satisfy at all. So let's get a grip on this snack food issue and get some snack ideas happening. Not having a plan (as we well know!) is a recipe for disaster. You know how to make a grocery list, so how about adding some of these snack ideas on your list this week? Here are five easy ones: 1) Fruit. Oh I know, not as sassy as you wanted. But try making the fruit bowl the first "go to" place for a snack and you'll get some extra nutrients in your child at the same time. 2) Cheese. I love those cheese sticks, but you can just as easily cut up cubes of cheese for your child (an ounce is plenty). Pair the cheese and the fruit and you have a terrific snack idea that will satiate and satisfy. 3) Nut Butters. I am crazy for nut butters; I have peanut, almond and macadamia nut in my fridge. I did everything in there, from fruit to veggies and the combo is a great mix of carbs, fat and protein that will satisfy and stop the grazing! 4) Yogurt. Get plain low fat Greek yogurt, mix it with frozen berries and a squirt of local honey (helps with immunity for allergies!) 5) Smoothie. Whip up some whey protein powder, fruit, a little water and you've got a powerful snack in a glass. This is especially good for your teenagers between school and sports. So there you have it, five awesome snack ideas that are healthy, inexpensive an d will keep your children from starving before dinner!

I r ecently moved down to S outh Florida for a new job. I am trying out the dating s cene, but it has been diffic ult because I was married f or 10 years. Abby, it's hard to find d ecent, intelligent women d own here. All the women I h ave dated so far have had b reast implants. These not o nly look strange, but also f eel uncomfortable during i ntimate moments. These w omen get a lot of looks f rom other men who gawk at t heir chests when we're t ogether. Would it be wrong of me t o ask a woman, say within t he first few dates, if her b reasts are real? I don't care i f they're big or small, I just w ant them real. Needs AReal Woman in Florida DearNeeds AReal W oman: I do not recomm end asking women you h ave just met if their breasts a re "real." It could lead to a p unch in the nose. I am reco mmending you visit some d ating sites and, in the area w here you are asked to list interests," you state "intell igent women who have not h ad plastic surgery." I'm s ure you'll find many. Of c ourse, whether you have w hat THEY'RE looking for remains to be seen. P.S. One final thought: If a boob job (forgive the vernacular) has been successful it is difficult if not impossible DearAbby: My husband and I have been married for two months and together for two years. While we were dating, I learned that "Mario" cheated on me during our first year of dating. When I confronted him, he told me he didn't know why, but that he loved me with all his heart. Afew months later, he asked me to marry him and I accepted. Afew days ago I discovered that not only did he cheat on me with several women, but also with several men. Mario says he didn't know how to tell me about his past because it was "disgusting" to him so he blocked it out of his mind. Had he told me all this before we married, I would not have gone through with it. I am now totally confused about his sexuality. Mario says it was "just a phase" it was in the past. He says he's a changed man and he wants to be with me. I don't know what to believe anymore because all he does is lie to me. Please help me. Brokenhearted and Confused in Texas DearBrokenhearted: The first thing you need to do is get checked for STDs and HIV, because you may have been exposed to some of them during the "phase" your husband "blocked out of his mind." Whether Mario admits it or not, he is bisexual. Next, go online to www.StraightSpouse.org and you will find the help and support you are looking for. Because you can't trust your husband to be honest, you will have to take care of yourself now. Please don't put it off because your emotional and physical health could depend upon it. On the plus side, be thankful there are not children involved. A man who always lies isn't just a poor husband; he would make an even worse role model.

Almost two decades of research by The National Center on Addict ion and Substance Abuse (CASA) at Columbia University has cons istently found that the more often kids eat dinner with their families, t he less likely they are to smoke, drink or use drugs. Studies show that kids who have family dinner five times a w eek are:45 percent less likely to drink and 66 percent less likely to do drugs.More likely to get A's and B's in school.More likely to think their parents are proud of them. "The power of the family dinner comes not from the food on the p late but from who's at the table and what's happening there. The e motional and social benefits that come from family dinners are p riceless," said Kathleen Ferrigno, CASA's Director of Marketing a nd head of CASAFamily Day ADay to Eat Dinner with your C hildren. "Having dinner as a family is one of the easiest ways to c reate routine opportunities for parental engagement and communic ation, two keys to raising drug-free children."
