By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING The first Sebring Thunder Car show was underway for day two on Saturday. Early morning visitors, residents, and vendors were all congregating in the Circle in downtown Sebring to view the collection of classic cars. Tents serving drinks and various food items lined the circle to refresh the event's patrons. Many of downtown's shops were also open for business and hoping to attract new and returning customers. Mark Stewart, volunteer for the registration table for the event, was very pleased with Saturday's turnout as well as the event itself. "This is the first year and we were hoping for maybe 100 to 150 cars, we have greatly exceeded that," said Stuart. The total at that time was a little over 200 vehicles registered. "They're still rolling in," Stewart said. Event organizer and Sebring City Council member John Griffin was also excited about the turnout. "The cars are from all over, everywhere from Fort Myers to Miami to Orlando. It' s beyond what we imagined.

Pam Fafeita, Activities Director at Reflections on Silver Lake in Avon Park, is enjoying yet another year of organizing volunteers to help with the hats. Fafeita and numerous volunteers spend quite a bit of time working to string the hats for all of the third graders that will participate in AgVenture each year. "It takes about a month. They don't work on it non-stop, they take there time and do it sporadically," explained Fafeita. Thursday morning, the Reflections community center was filled with residents and volunteers. Five huge boxes of were filled to the top with red, green, and yellow straw cowboy hats. "There are different groups so each group gets a different colored straw hat. That way if we see a kid with a red hat in a group of yellows, we know he's at the wrong station," Fafeita said. This year total number of hats was 1,152. Each student will receive a hat to wear throughout the program and keep. The volunteers had the hats scattered across several tables and piles of string next to them. "We string the hats, the string we add keeps the hats around their necks and from falling off," explained Fafeita. The black string is run through the rim of the hat and across to the other side and fed back down. The volunteers then simply tie and cut the string accordingly at a certain Fall movie previewPAGE16B5-year-old nearly drowns in SebringPAGE2ANEWS-SUN Sunday, September 19, 2010www.newssun.comVolume 91/Number 113 | 75 cents www.newssun .com HighLow 92 71Complete Forecast PAGE 16A Mostly sunny and warm Forecast Question: Has the recent swine flu scare made you more likely to get a flu shot this winter?

By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK After a three week investigation, the Avon Park Police Department, in conjunction with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency and the Highlands County Sheriff's Office and several other agencies, arrested six individuals in a methamphetamine lab raid on Thursday.

The archivist position has been funded by Highlands County since its inception. On June 21, 1988 the Board of County Commissioners agreed to the society's proposal to provide $85,000 for the express purpose of creating a space at the Sebring Library to collect, store, and provide public access to City of Sebring historical documents and collections. In October 1990 the society having made the final payment on the $85,000 and the county having completed the expansion the society opened the doors to its archive. At the time all work was done by volunteers. In order to insure public access and provide a professional approach, however, a request was quickly made of the county to provide a staff position through the county library system. In April of 1994, the county agreed to create the position of archivist.

The strategy requires an a utumn influx of voters w illing to view the election a s a choice between two i mperfect parties and i mperfect candidates on e ach ballot line rather t han as a chance to slap the W ashington establishment t hat the public seems to disl ike so deeply. But the Democrats admit t he Republicans have a big e motional advantage with v oters who are fed up with h igh unemployment, soari ng deficits and what many s ee as an arrogant Congress a nd administration that r ammed a revolutionary h ealth care plan down their t hroats. If voters keep burning w ith the throw-the-bumso ut fever that animated so m any primaries, Democrats would be likely to lose more than 40 House seats, costing them the majority and positioning Republicans to block virtually any Obama initiatives in the next two years. Losing the Senate majority, which would require a 10seat Republican gain, is less likely. Democratic candidates want to convince these voters that no matter how much they hate the status quo, they would be worse off under a Republican Party that hasn't learned from its mistakes and is lurching ever harder to the right. "This needs to be a choice, not a referendum" on the Democratic-led Congress and Obama administration, said Erik Smith, a Democratic campaign adviser. President Barack Obama, campaigning for a Senate contender in Connecticut on Thursday, said of Republicans: "All they are going to be feeding us is anger and resentment and not a lot of new ideas. But that's a potent force when people are scared and they're hurting." Dems to voters: You may hate us, but GOP is worse Authorities find 36 dead alligators in truck in Moore Haven MOORE HAVEN (AP) Two men face poaching charges after deputies found 36 dead alligators and a bag containing 19 live hatchlings in the bed of their truck.

Is it sacred, if you drop a page of it or even a paper with words written from it on the paper, you have a special prayer? Do you reverence it? When you go to sleep are you careful to place your Holy Book at your head, not your feet? AMuslim does. Can't you respect him for practicing what he believes? To violate the Holy Book would be as bad or worse than violating a man's wife. What about reverence for that which is considered Holy? Respect for other people? If you read history or remember what happened in the "Dark Ages," there were people who wanted the freedom to discern Scripture and write it in the common language of the people. If you remember, there was a church and church leaders who brought on a storm. They burned the Bibles, books on Scriptures and even hymn books, like you are trying to do. They too thought they were doing God's work. They even tortured and burned God's children at the stake. Thousands of people lost their lives, because people did the same thing you are wanting to do. You say God told you to do it. So did they. Doesn't the Scripture say examine the spirits? Perhaps you are listening to the wrong spirit? The spirit of a loving God says love your neighbor as yourself. Do you remember a story in the Holy Bible about a people of a different country were hated? They were considered "dogs" to the people who were considered God's children, a special nation. Yet the God you claim to worship and the Jesus you say you represent died to save that Samaritan "dog." If you have done it unto the least of these, you have done it to me. Love does not behave rudely. We are fellow United States citizens, with brothers all over the world, with one blood and the same Father. J.G. Henderson Avon ParkWhat is a home?Editor: Ahome is a place where children are to be born and reared with love and respect for each other where parents are honored. Children are not born equipped to make decisions alone. That is why God gave them parents; as the twig is bent, so goes the tree. Just as a new Christian needs nurturing and training, so does the child. God gives us many parables and examples, but without application, they will do little good. He tells us to train up a child in the way he should go, He T o provide political cover for r efusing to do anyt hing when Gov. C harlie Crist called a special legislative s ession in the wake o f the Deepwater H orizon explosion a nd oil well rupture t his summer in the G ulf of Mexico, H ouse Speaker L arry Cretul of O cala appointed s ome committees t o presumably look i nto things the state o ught to do better t o protect itself a gainst oil spills.Not to worry, Cretul a ssured us at the time. A nother special session could b e convened as early as S eptember, when lawmakers h ad more information. Well, those committees h ave wrapped up their work. A nd Cretul says there's no n eed for a special session. T here's nothing the L egislature can or should do r ight now about the whole m essy business. Nothing? Nothing at all? Pardon us if we are a bit skeptical when it comes to the House and issues involving Big Oil. After all, this is the same House that, shortly before the Deepwater Horizon disaster, paid for a trumped-up study that all but dismissed the risk of drilling off Florida's coastal waters. This is the same House that, just last year, recklessly voted to end Florida's longstanding prohibition against coastal drilling. Thankfully, the Senate did not go along. Cretul, in one of his last acts as speaker, recently told his colleagues that "it would appear that while there are some issues where legislative action may be appropriate, there are no issues that require immediate formal legislative action." Those members up for reelection can dodge and weave around the questions about offshore drilling in the Gulf or nearshore drilling close to Florida's beaches. ... Come the next regular session, expect those same lawmakers to be too busy cozying up to the oil-and-gas lobby to do anything but posture on the Gulf drilling issues. How disappointing. An editorial from the Ocala Star Banner. Other viewpoints Recently my friend Tina posted an amazing article about people claiming to be Christians spreading information about Muslims that is, to put it nicely, distorted. The article is too long to reprint here, but she's given me permission to hit you with the highlights. Tina, like me, has conservative views. Like me, she has concerns over radical Muslims who use their belief system as an excuse to try to kill people that don't agree with them. I want you to be clear on this. But she noticed two emails making the rounds lately that were getting twisted by some to say things not implied or stated in the articles cited. This is her beef that people are passing around incorrect information based on inaccurate facts. One article talks about Muslims burning Bibles and destroying crosses in the Gaza area. People talking about the article were apparently under the impression that it was a current event something happening perhaps in response to Terry Jones'threats to burn the Koran. (Side note: I am relieved that Jones came to his senses and decided not to go through with his bonfire, even if he only made up his mind after I sent in last week's column. Such is the nature of deadlines). The people who implied this had not checked their facts closely enough. If they had, they would have discovered that the date of the article in question was June 18, 2007. That's right. More than three years ago. Yes, I'm not thrilled when someone burns a Bible. As I indicated last week, I'm not a fan of burning any books. But this is old news, not something currently going on. Why spread it around now? The second article claims that Muslims are praying every Friday in the streets of New York City, stopping traffic as they do so. There's even a picture of Muslims praying in the street with th e article. The problem with this? The picture is of an annual event sponsored by the Muslim Foundation of America. That's right, onc e a year, not once a week. Maybe people still don't lik e it, but at least get your fact s straight. And that's what bothers people like Tina and me. That people who claim to b e Christians will on occasion pass on rumors or half-truth s even if they know that they are rumors or halftruths. Tina is careful to distinguish from people making honest mistakes and people who just don't care what th e facts are. I knew someone like that, who passed along an email that was inaccurat e about a person but would n ot correct it when I pointed ou t the truth. Things like this anger me especially now, with the midterm elections coming u p and campaigning going hot and heavy. We want to poin t fingers on people who are opposite us politically and blame them for all the nega tive campaigning and disin formation. But if we are truly honest with ourselves we have to admit that road travels both ways. These days, information both true and false is easy to spread. I'm not asking people not to use their Firs t Amendment rights to pass things along. I am hoping that if you get some rumor or outrageous information from someone that you take a few minutes to check out the facts for yourself before passing it on. Especially if you claim to be a Christian After all, as Tina says, "I f we waste our time on rumo rs and lies, we won't be believed when we tell the truth!" Laura Ware is a Sebring re sident.

After some years of slumbering comfortably, the American people have awakened and they are hopping mad over what they have discovered was going on while they slept. The stunning results of yesterday's primary contests should be frightening not only to the D emocrats, but to those Republicans in n ame only RINOs whose actions h ave been more or less barely indisting uishable from the Democratic party's d eranged left wing. Both the RINOS and their Democratic c ounterparts have been showing sneeri ng contempt for the voters for a long t ime and they are about to pay dearly f or it. They have kicked the voters in the f ace for far too long a time and the c hickens are now coming home to roost. The despised Tea Party Express was a b ig winner in this past week's primaries, a nd as a result they have become a m ajor voice on the political landscape, a nd for good reason. The Republican party does not have a clear voice or message and they haven't had either for a long time. It is now the Tea Partiers who are speaking for the nation's Republican voters. And they are speaking on behalf of good old fashioned American values. The void left by the GOPhas been filled by ordinary Americans who are mad as hell and not taking it anymore. The Democrats say that the Republicans are the party of "no," but it might be better to describe them as the party of "don't know." They don't know that the voters will no longer allow them to lead them around by the nose, supinely accepting commands from on high. Rank and file Republicans are demanding that the party pay attention to their opinions, and when those demands fall on GOPdeaf ears, party big wigs will find themselves without any followers. The contempt they exhibit for such outstanding Republicans as Sarah Palin and South Carolina's Sen. Jim DeMint A great awakening Making Sense Michael Reagan Every day and night we see media reports of troops killed in battle, attacked by IEDs, or harmed by an unseen enemy. We pray for the ground troops who are doing the tough work on the front lines But, few know the Air Force is integral to not only the current war, but does so much more all over the globe and why it needs our support more than ever. Throughout the Air Force's history, its people, technology, and culture have served the nation well. The USAF has only gotten better over time. In World War II, it took nearly 3,000 air sorties to eliminate a single target. Today, a single aircraft can destroy multiple targets in only one sortie. The Air Force hallmark of air dominance, achieved by combining modern Air Force capabilitiesinformation superiority, mobility and precision strikehas been unsurpassed for more than 60 years. Because of this success, a lot of what the Air Force does goes unnoticed. Even beyond their traditional strengths, airmen have become engaged in a number of other activities during the last seven years. They are leading convoys, security patrols, rescue missions, treating combat casualties and more. Airmen make up a significant portion of the approximately 150,000 U.S. service members who are presently engaged in combat as well as nation building in Iraq and Afghanistan. Of th e 13 U.S. Provincial Reconstruction Teams (PRT ) currently in Afghanistan, si x are headed by Air Force off icers. Nearly 40,000 of America's airmen are deployed to 263 locations across the globe, including 63 locations in the Middle East. And nearly 130,000 airmen support combatant commander missions from their home stations every day. These airmen operate the nation's space and missile forces, process and exploit remotely collected intelligence, execute mobil ity and air defense missions over the U.S., and contribu te in many other ways. The A ir Force operates the Global Positioning System, which provides precise navigation and timing; it provides glob al satellite communications space-based surveillance, and missile warning. Currently, the Air Force is flying 40 round-the-clock patrols each day in Afghanistan with its Predator and Reaper remote ly piloted aircraft, an eightfold increase over 2004. Air Force space assets provide the U.S. with an unparalleled degree of accu racy, connectivity and situa The quiet Air Force Happy Landings Bill Hutchison See AIR, page 5A See GOP, page 5A Continued on page 5A

The Air Force's ability to track space objects currently 20,000 of them has operational implications not only for military and civil uses of space, but also the enormously lucrative space system industry. And USAF's exploitation of cyberspace and advanced information technologies enable everyone in the military to properly command and control forces, binding virtually all of our advanced capabilities together into precise, increasingly networked and better synchronized operations. The Air Force is always the first to respond in support of humanitarian disasters. Every 90 seconds an airlift airplane takes off and lands somewhere around the world sometimes into a very austere location like Antarctica, and sometimes into a very dangerous place like a forward operating base in Afghanistan. Air Force airlift moved 29 million pounds of goods in 2009 as well as 208 patients worldwide by Aeromedical Evacuation flights. Agreat example is Haiti, where Air Force Joint Terminal Air Controllers were able to deploy to Haiti immediately after the earthquake and provide air traffic control. That effort put the only airport back into service from 10-12 flights per day to more than 160 per day enabling key assistance to get to a nation with failing infrastructure saving untold numbers of lives. The Air Force also delivered tons of food, water and medical supplies to communities isolated by the earthquake. Air Force units also responded quickly to the earthquake in Chile even expanding a mobile hospital to better meet the medical needs of the surrounding population. The question that does not have to be asked i s: Where are our transport air craft? That's because they are present all over the globe. USAF proudly defines itself as one Air Force with airmen (both military and civilians) executing strike, space, mobility, Inte r Continental Ballistic Missil e, support or special operation s missions. They are deterrin g war, while at the same time waging war, performing joi nt operations, supporting humanitarian relief and all of this while maintainin g America's air and space dominance. That's a great story of achievement and dedication and it needs to be known. Thank you airmen for your service and your sacrifice.

Continued from page 4A is not shared by the great majority of Republicans who admire these outstanding patriots for speaking out in favor of traditional American values in the face of vehement opposition from the Left wings of both parties whose views are closer to those of Karl Marx than to those of Abraham Lincoln. Despite sneering comments by such GOP luminaries as Karl Rove, rank and file Republicans, and a surprising number of independents and disaffected Democrats are flocking to the Tea Party Banner. And they have enough political common sense to recognize that when Sarah Palin speaks, she speaks for them and for their opinions in plain simple language. We are witnessing a long delayed rebirth of participatory democracy where the people speak aloud and their party leadership listens. And those members of the leadership who don't hear their voices will end up in the political graveyard. Their message is loud and clear: America' s strength is in its people, not in their government. After years of seeing their states rendered all but powerless, states'rights are onc e more a rallying cry. And the American peopl e are telling Washington to get it's hands out o f their pockets and their private lives.

Just as this world is a p lace to prepare for eternit y, the home is a place to p repare children to become r esponsible, God-fearing a dults in the world. To do t his, it is imperative that we s pend time with our child ren and be aware of the r esponsibility and privilege t hat God has entrusted to u s. When they are gone, so i s the opportunity. We have o nly one shot. We have to t ake responsibility for what t hey are taught. We must a lways remember a parent i s their greatest teacher and e xample is our best tool i ncluding God's Holy W ord. The greatest gift we c an give our children is to b ring them up under the n urture and admonition of o ur Lord. Unless we give t hem that, all else will be of l ittle value. That is the f oundation for life. We are in large measure r esponsible for what our c hildren become. The children of today are exposed to so much more than previous generations were. There are so many objectionable things on TV and the Internet. The common definition of love has become sex. God made sex to be a beautiful part of marriage between man and woman, it has become a pool of filth. Our president is appointing leaders who show no respect for right over wrong. In the September American Family Association Journal, there is an article proposing a curriculum with materials on sex education as follows. This was in Helena, Mont. By the end of first grade, students should understand that homosexuality is as normal as heterosexuality. By the end of fifth grade, they should understand that sexual intercourse includes, but is not limited to, vaginal, oral or anal penetration. By the end of the following year, they should know that such sexual activity includes using the penis, fingers, tongue or objects. They want to do this under the guise of medical accuracy and science. I don't think this is the kind of things that need to be fed to school students. This is the time children are inquiring and exploring. The information from teachers whom they are taught to respect and trust is having a great impact. They should be taught the true meaning of sex and love of their parents and reenforced at school. If we allow this kind of misrepresentation of truth to our children, what can we expect from the next generation? They will have no conception of right and wrong. Read Genesis 19 and see what happened to Sodom and Gomorrah. I know those pushing agendas would have us believe there's nothing we can do. I've a feeling if enough parents attend school board meetings, write letters and search for ways, things will change. The polls are our best weapon.

Includes STANFORD MERLE "BUDDY" STANSBERRY, JR.Stanford Merle Stansberry, Jr. (Buddy) of Winter Garden, Florida passed away on Wednesday, September 1, 2010 in Dallas, Texas. He was born on February 15, 1952 to Maggie and Stanford Stansberry, Sr. in Lake Wales, Florida and grew up in Avon Park. He was in the Navy and a veteran of the Vietnam War. He loved fishing and worked on a fishing boat early in life. He was a truck driver for more than thirty years and worked out of Cullman, Alabama for the last ten years. He had a passion for the road and meeting people and enjoyed being with his family. He is survived by his wife, Rebecca Stansberry, Winter Garden, Florida, three daughters, Jami Burkhart, Lone Grove, Oklahoma, Maggi Mitchell, Toledo, Ohio, and Melanie Snapp, Morristown, Tennessee, one son, Kevin Owens, Dandridge, Tennessee, three sisters, Merlene Lepe, Lake Wales, Florida, Avie Bahling, St Petersburg, Florida, Brenda Crosson, Avon Park, Florida, one brother, Nelson Stansberry, Old Town, Florida, seven grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews. Family members held a memorial service for Buddy in Lake Wales, FL on September 12, 2010. COMMUNITYBRIEFS OBITUARIES u al would be an employee of t he county working under t he supervision of the count y librarian. In the agreement between t he society and the county t hat created the staff posit ion signed by Alfred C rawford, the society's presi dent; Audry Vickers, a m ember of the county comm ission; and L. V. "Buddy" M cKenzie, chief deputy c lerk for L. E. Brooker it w as agreed that the society w ould "not be required to c ontribute at any time t oward utility expense, m aintenance costs, salaries, o r any other expenses of the S ebring Library Building." Recent economic downt urns and budget shortfalls, h owever, led the county to r econsider its position, espec ially when other historical s ocieties in the county comp lained it was unfair for S ebring to have an archivist w hen they did not. Lake Placid Historical Society, for example, hoped to be able to share the archivist's services. During negotiations for fiscal year 2010-2011, the county announced to wanted to cut the archivist from its budget. The general feeling was that if Sebring wanted an archivist it could fund the position itself. The city council, however, did not agree, feeling the county had obligated itself back in 1988 and 1990. It asked staff to contact the county on the matter. On Aug. 18, city administrator Scott Noethlich did so, writing to acting county administrator Rick Helms and sending copies of the earlier agreements. On Sept. 15, Helms informed Noethlich that the county had considered the issue. While the earlier agreements were not mentioned, he wrote, the board of county commissioners did agree to provide $10,211 representing the employee benefits for an archivist working a 32-hour week. The annual salary for an archivist with a 32-hour work week is $17,599. If the city council agrees to match the county's benefits contribution, it will leave $7,378 to be funded by the Sebring Historical Society. Council member John Griffin said he hoped leading businesses, like Florida Hospital or Highlands Independent Bank, could help with contributions to the society. While the city council is concerned about city spending, members expressed support for the society and its archive. At the Sept. 7 meeting, Mayor George Hensley said, "The society stands out. If it wasn't available it would be sad for the community." He added this was particularly true as Sebring approaches its centennial year.

Associated PressMIAMI It was appropriate that Gov. Charlie Crist stood between Democrat Kendrick Meek and Republican Marco Rubio during their first Senate debate Friday since he was getting hit from both sides. Crist repeatedly pointed out that he doesn't have to follow the ideology of either party and said his opponents would only be part of the partisan divide that has Washington in gridlock. "My opponents have a script that they have to listen to, they have talking points that they have to go by. The party bosses in Washington give it to them. If they don't toe the line, they lose their support," Crist said. "I'm the only one on this stage that can say the Democrats may have some good ideas, the Republicans may have some good ideas." But Meek and Rubio said voters shouldn't buy the act. "Everybody sees what you're doing, everybody gets it," Rubio said. "You only changed parties and did this independent thing when you couldn't win the Republican primary. "And now you wake up every day and you try to figure out what you can say or do to take votes away from Congressman Meek so more Democrats will vote for you." Meek also piled on, saying Crist is "trying to pick the raisins out of the bread" by saying what's popular on any given issue. "Mr. Crist is someone that is willing to say Hey, I'm for everything on any day.'But we need leadership, someone to speak out," Meek said. Crist waited until the second to last day to qualify for the ballot to announce he would run without a party. H e later changed his party regi stration from Republican to n o party affiliation. Crist debated Rubio in March as a Republican cand idate, but Friday was the fir st time he and the two maj or nominees answered questio ns together. All three agreed that t he 14th Amendment shouldn 't be changed to strip it of aut omatic citizenship for anyo ne born in the United State s. They also agree that t he Cuban embargo shouldn't be lifted. Otherwise, there were di stinct differences. Crist said he would have voted against t he health care overha ul President Obama signe d, Rubio said the law needs to be repealed and Meek defen ded his support of the bill, sa ying thousands of Floridia ns are losing their health insu rance every week.

"It's fairly simple," said many of the volunteers. Not only does the group spend many hours stringing hats for the third-graders, several of the Silver Lake residents are volunteers at Ag-Venture as well. Bonnie Ermel is in her fifth year of volunteering at the Ag-Venture program. "I will be at the ornamental horticulture station. We teach them how to grow something different every year. It just amazes me that these kids are able to do this," Ermel said. Ermel seemed enthusiastic about returning again next month. "The kids keep me going back. Its just great to see them learn," said Ermel. Sandy and Gene Shaffer are also five-year volunteers with the Ag-Venture program. "Watching a child plant something that's never put their hand in the dirt, it's really something to see," said Mrs. Shaffer. The Shaffers have volunteered at every station, with the exception of the cow station, over the past five years. "This year we will be at the alligator and strawberry stations," said Mr. Shaffer. The volunteers are enthusiastic and excited about this year's program. They are working diligently to prepare for the students three days at Ag-Venture, which is Oct. 26-28 at the county fairgrounds in Sebring. The hat stringing should be completed by early October. "The kids are a joy, each year they are great. That's why we keep going back," Ermel said.

Some experts have predicted that the cost of electricity will skyrocket. And since residential air conditioning is one of the biggest users of electricity,the new Stimulus Package contains a substancial incentive for upgrading your old air conditioner to a new high efficiency model. USE IT OR LOSE IT? It seems as though you are going to payŽfor a new,more efficient,air conditioner whether you get one or not. If you replace your old system you might be eligible for up to $1,500 in tax benefits. And,if you wait too long,you may lose the tax credit,and pay a much higher utility bill. In 2010,a new law has made most existing air conditioners effectively obsolete! This law bans the manufacturing of air conditioners using the refrigerant R-22. Therefore,the cost of the refrigerant has begun to skyrocket,which means your old air conditioner becomes very expensive to repair.

LASTS AND LASTS AND LASTS.’ BUSINESS By ROB GILLIES Associated Press WriterTORONTO BlackBerry maker Research i n Motion Ltd. believes it will successfully r esolve disputes with India, the United Arab E mirates and other countries over data security a nd avert their threats to ban services, the comp any's co-CEO said Thursday. Jim Balsillie's remarks came as the company s aid its second-quarter net income jumped 68 p ercent as it added new BlackBerry subscribers a nd beat analysts expectations at a time many h ave started to write the company off. Balsillie said RIM is continuing discussions w ith governments and service providers, and they believe we have made good progress in t hose discussions." "I'm optimistic that a positive and construct ive outcome can be achieved," he added duri ng a conference call with analysts to discuss t he latest financial results. RIM shares rose more than 4 percent in afterh ours trading. The stock initially jumped 8 perc ent in extended trading. BlackBerry second-quarter shipments c limbed 45 percent to 12.1 million from a year a go. That comes amid concerns that RIM is losi ng ground to Apple Inc.'s iPhone and devices u sing Google Inc.'s Android software. "International markets continue to be a s trong driver of growth," Balsillie said. He said about 52 percent of revenue came f rom outside the United States, and more than 4 5 percent of BlackBerry subscribers are outs ide North America. The company posted net income of $796.7 m illion, or $1.46 per share, in the three months e nded Aug. 28. That's up from $475.6 million, o r 83 cents per share, a year earlier. Analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters e xpected earnings of $1.35 per share, on avera ge. Revenue rose 31 percent to $4.62 billion, b etter than the $4.47 billion expected by anal ysts. For the quarter ending in November, the c ompany projected earnings of $1.62 to $1.70 p er share on revenue of $5.3 billion to $5.55 b illion. Analysts were looking for $1.39 per s hare and revenue of $4.83 billion. Shares of RIM, which is based in Waterloo, Ontario, rose $1.95, or 4.2 percent, to $48.44 after the conference call. In regular trading earlier, shares rose 97 cents, or 2.1 percent, to close at $46.49 still down more than 30 percent from the start of the year on the perception it is losing market share to the iPhone and Android phones. There are far fewer third-party applications available for BlackBerrys, and because of a weak app store strategy, users have had trouble finding them. RIM has also been behind on adapting its software for touch screens. Worries that countries such as India and the United Arab Emirates would ban BlackBerry services also drove the stock lower. The countries complained that BlackBerry e-mail encryption posed a national-security risk. Investors'fears of a shutdown have dissipated on expectations that RIM would reach deals to avert bans. India postponed a ban for at least two months after RIM agreed to give security officials "lawful access" to data. "We've made it clear that we are respectful of government needs and fully cooperating to comply with lawful requirements on an industry standard basis, but we cannot compromise the security architecture of the BlackBerry enterprise solution," Balsillie said Thursday, reiterating the company's previous stance. Balsillie said RIM "simply has no ability to read the encrypted information and that it has no master key or back door key to allow access." He said the company knows it's a "fundamentally important security feature" for its corporate clients. BlackBerrys still have a strong following in the corporate market, but investors have seen signs of its grip fraying. RIM launched the BlackBerry Torch in August, with a touch screen and a slide-out keyboard. It has an improved operating system and a new Web browser, but analysts say RIM is trying to play catch-up rather than breaking new ground. Balsillie said the Torch helped turn around sales in North America. He said subscriber growth was initially hurt in the quarter by competing products when RIM didn't have any new smart phones. Overall sales were also hurt in the Middle East due to the security concerns, he said. "If there was some softening, which we said there was some softening early in the quarter, that's dramatically reversed," he said. BGC Financial analyst Colin Gillis said there's no doubt RIM beat expectations in the second quarter. "There's no way around it. We got revenue on the high end of guidance," Gillis said. "Things are not falling apart." Gillis said the stock might have trimmed some of its initial gains in after hours after RIM executives said on the conference call that the company will not release the average selling price or net subscribers additions in future earnings reports. He said net subscriber additions in the second quarter were 4.5 million compared to a forecast of around 5 million.

www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, September 19, 2010Page 11A BUSINESS A friend of mine recently realized his mother needed help managing her finances when he found her closets filled w ith oddball purchases like j alapeno jelly beans and B etty Boop bobblehead d olls. "It was pretty clear t hat telemarketers were taki ng advantage of her friendl y nature to sell her junk s he didn't want or need," he s aid. Fortunately, his mom w elcomed assistance; but n ot all families are so lucky. S ome parents are fiercely i ndependent and fear relinq uishing control over any a spect of their lives; others m ay be in over their heads a nd too embarrassed to ask f or help. Postponing uncomforta ble financial conversations w ith your parents may do t hem and you a serious d isservice. Chances are, if y ou're helping your parents f inancially your own retirem ent savings probably are s uffering. It's never too soon to b ecome familiar with your p arents'financial, medical a nd legal records so you can s tep in if needed. If possib le, start those conversat ions while they're still in g ood health so you'll be a ble to spot any warning s ignals that something may b e amiss. Signs to watch for might include: Unpaid bills, late payment notices or utility shutoff warnings. Calls from creditors or collection agencies. Indications they've had to choose between filling prescriptions and buying food, heating or other necessities. Overabundant junk mail, magazine subscriptions or cheap prizes signs they may be targets of telemarketing or get-rich-quick schemes. Seemingly unnecessary home improvements; or conversely, signs that they can't afford needed repairs. Uncharacteristically lavish spending on vacations, new cars, etc. Long before your folks require assistance, offer to help organize their finances. Set up and periodically update files containing: Details of all major possessions and relevant paperwork (such as property deeds, car registration, jewelry, etc.) Outstanding and recurring debts (mortgage, car loan, medical bills, utilities, etc.) All income sources, including Social Security, retirement and investment accounts and savings. Bank accounts, credit cards, safe deposit box contents and insurance policies, including password, agent and beneficiary information. Will, trust, power of attorney, health care proxy and other documents showing how they want their affairs handled. Contact information for lawyer, accountant, broker, financial planner, insurance agent and other advisors. Afew other tips: Help your folks set up and follow a detailed budget so they always know how much money is coming in and going out. Numerous free budgeting tools are available at such sites as www.mymoney.gov, the National Foundation for Credit Counseling (www.nfcc.org), www.mint.com, and Practical Money Skills for Life, Visa Inc.'s free personal financial management site (www.practicalmoneyskills.com/budgeting). Set up automatic bill payment for monthly bills to avoid late payment fees. Just make sure the account is always sufficiently funded. Schedule a session with a financial planner to help everyone understand retirement's impact on taxes, income and expenses. If you don't have one, the Financial Planning Association (www.fpaforfinancialplanning.org) is a good resource. Take care of these financial planning details now, so that when your parents need your help, you'll be able to give them your full attention. And while you're at it, make sure your own files are in good order so your kids won't face the same hurdles when you get older. Jason Alderman directs Visa's financial education programs.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING After last w eek's liberating, longa waited for win over Hardee, t he main thing Blue Streak h ead coach Jared Hamlin w anted to focus on was, well, f ocus. "After such an emotional w in, it can be hard to maint ain focus," he said. "That's w hat we stress with t he kids, that they c an't lose focus." Seeing the Lake R egion Thunder take t he field Friday night a t Firemen's Field w ould have been e nough to bring back a ny lost focus. With a massive offensive l ine, featuring 6-foot, 4-inch, 2 90-pound left tackle T horton Jozwiak, a supremel y physical battle seemed in t he offing. But with their smorgasbord o f offensive weapons, S ebring took the opening k ick and marched right down t he field. A38-yard Matt Grubb to J aquan Williams pass started things off, moving the Streaks from their own 25 to the Thunder 37. Damion Thompson then rumbled off 12 yards on two runs before Grubb had his first of just six incompletions on the night. But he came right back with a nine-yarder to Devin Clarke and another nine-yard toss to Williams to bring it down to the six. Trini Sutton then barged through the line for four before Thompson bulled it in from the two. A75-yard, eightplay drive and the Streaks were out to a 7-0 lead, less than three minutes into the game. "We lost focus after that," Hamlin said. "The big win last week, that opening drive, I think the kids thought this would be an easy one." But even if the offense got a little sloppy for the rest of the half, the defense gave Lake Region little room to maneuver. Using their quickness to shoot the gaps and get around the dauntingly sized Thunder linemen, the Blue Streak defense forced consecutive three-and-outs on Lake Region's first two possessions. And even when the visitors held a drive together for longer than a series, the only time they were in Sebring territory was after a James Jackson interception gave them the ball at the Blue Streak 29. Four straight incompletions later, however, Sebring had it back and took a knee to close out the half with the 70 lead. A27-yard completion from Geoffrey Bangley to Barell Pierce opened the third quarter, but the Thunder still couldn't advance it quite to midfield, with the drive stalling at their own 49. Their focus back after the talk at halftime, the Blue Streak offense was back at it, rolling off a 13-play drive to add to the margin. Five different weapons were put to use, with By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comLAKE PLACID The Lake Placid Green Dragons held the Red Devils at bay in order to stop a last minute drive to win 7-6 over Avon Park Friday. "We forced four turnovers, and that was huge," said Lake Placid head coach Jason Holden. "This is a very big win for the team, Avon Park has a good program. "We had no turnovers, and very few three-and-outs," he continued. "We practiced stripping the ball this week. Avon Park has been having trouble holding on to the ball, and we were able to force plays that made a difference." The Devils were able to pick up the first touchdown when, with 2:29 left in the first, Travious Knight broke for a 27-yard score. Avon Park would have some trouble with who was supposed to be on the field for the point after, an d missed a hurried kick. The Dragons forced t he first turnover before the ha lf ended, but decided to take a knee and run the clock o ut rather than force the issue. Asecond fumble wou ld gave Lake Placid an opportunity in t he third quarter, but a long drive was le ft short by a solid Dev il defense. Avon Park he ld firm, stopping La ke Placid at the 16 ya rd line to retake possession, b ut on the first play of the R ed Devil possession, the ba ll was stripped by the Drago ns eight yards out, setting u p their only touchdown.

The point after was good, a nd the Dragons led 7-6 h eading into the final 12 m inutes. Avon Park started off the f ourth quarter with back-tob ack penalties, but a lucky c all at the two-minute mark p ut them within scoring dist ance. Starting quarterback Ryan D ick had left the game at the h alf with a hip pointer, but b ackup JD Hardy led the D evils from their own 17y ard line to the Dragon 35 w ith a hurry-up offense. Within sight of the goal at 1 :05, Hardy connected with T K Miller for the first down a t the Dragon 24-yard line b efore another fumble ended A von Park's drive and a llowed Lake Placid to take a knee to run out the clock. "Lake Placid is a hard-hitt ing team," said Andy B onjokian, Avon Park's h ead coach, after the game. I was pleased with JD ( Hardy) and it was clear that b oth he and Ryan (Dick) did w ell for us tonight. We just d ecided that we would rather n ot take a chance with putt ing Ryan back in after he t ook a good hit, and Hardy w as able to step up." "TK Miller went both ways for us all night, and never left the field, but gave us a great performance. So we know the desire is there, it's the execution that is lacking right now," he added. "We just had too many penalties and too many turnovers. We are 0-0 in the district right now, but we need to work hard to get ready for Cardinal Mooney next week in Sarasota." "That Brad Perry recovery at the end was a game stopper," Holden said about the last fumble. "We had some guys who made it happen. Gayle ran his guts out, and their efforts made the difference." Gayle carried the ball 28 times for the Dragons, picking up 88-yards on the ground for the lion's share of the 137 total offensive yards Lake Placid ground out. The Devils totaled 217 yards on offense, using their wide assortment of backs on their ground attack, and completed just one for 11 throws for 11 yards. While Avon Park travels to Sarasota to face the Cougars Friday, Lake Placid heads south to face the Cowboys of LaBelle.

On consecutive plays, b oth Clarke and Thompson w ent down with apparent i njuries, but Clarke's turned o ut to be just a cramp and he w as soon back to haul in a 2 0-yard pass from Grubb. From there, Sutton cove red the final 20 yards on t hree carries to push the lead t o 14-0 at the 4:09 mark of t he third. Clarke showed he was b ack at full speed when, on L ake Region's first play on t he next series, he stepped in f ront of a Bangley pass, p icked it off and looked to h ave a TD return, only to be p ulled down at the two. He would get the touchd own, however, getting the c arry on the next play and t aking it in for the score and a 21-0 lead with 3:40 left in t he period. When backup QB L awrence Thompson tried a dvancing from the Thunder s even three plays later, a couple of jarring Sebring hits knocked the ball loose for Clarence Counts to pounce on and get the ball back at the 15. Five plays later, Clarke was darting in from four yards out with 15 seconds left in the third. Atrade off of scoreless series followed into the fourth before Lake Region caught a little lightning with Bangley finding Pierce deep for a 49-yard gain to the Sebring 10. Dante Lambert then carried twice get the Thunder on the board with 4:21 left in the game. But though they'd get the ball back one more time to try to capitalize on the momentum, the Sebring defense wasn't about to let down, pressuring Bangley into three straight incompletions, ending the series and essentially the game as the Streaks then took knees to count off the final seconds. "The defense was sound all night long," Hamlin said. "It got sloppy at times on offense, but it showed the kids what we've been telling them. That they can't lose focus and just have to take it one play at a time, one rep at a time, and not let up." Now 3-0 on the young season, the Streaks head into district play this week, traveling to Lake Nona Friday to face the Lions.

All it takes to fill the prime made-for-TVlocale is a deep-pocketed sponsor looking to jump into NASCAR or bolster its profile by forming a partnership with one of the sports marquee stars. Gordon and Stewart who have six championships between them are chasing corporate America's dollars just as much they're driving for a title over the 10-race Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. They're not alone. Corporate sponsors have dried up to the point that Kyle Busch says he may have to fold his truck team next season. Busch could be one-and-done in the lowbudget series if a full-time sponsor can't be signed to keep it afloat. "The people that have the money to do it, can't or don't want to do it," Busch said Friday. "The guys that want to do it, don't have the money to do it." Busch has run into circumstances in the Trucks Series where other teams are slicing rates and practically giving away sponsorship, leaving him scrambling to find a company willing to pay a higher price that a driver like Busch commands. "I think it's going to be pretty detrimental to not have myself in the series," Busch said. In a troubling sign that NASCAR and corporate America have not emerged unscathed from the economic swoon, Stewart and Gordon have done everything short of putting out a want ad to stir sponsorship interest. Gordon is nearing the end of a nearly 20-year relationship with DuPont and Stewart needs a primary sponsor for 14 races next season. Old Spice announced earlier this year it would withdraw Stewart's sponsorship based on a change in marketing strategies. Gordon recently saw a potential deal with Wal-Mart collapse at the bargaining table. "The Wal-Mart thing was a little disappointing because I feel like everybody was wanting to see that company in this sport for a long time and we would have loved to have represented them," Gordon said. NASCAR, easily America's top racing series, has seen TVratings and attendance slide this season. Plenty of teams have felt the economic pinch as sponsors look elsewhere to spend their dollars, or just not spend big bucks on sports at all. "It's not a drivers market right now and corporate America understands that," said David Carter, who specializes in sports business and marketing as executive director of the USC Sports Business Institute. Stewart's teammate, Ryan Newman, is looking for additional sponsors for 2011. Sam Hornish Jr., who drives for Penske Racing, has nothing in place for next season because sponsor ExxonMobil is leaving his car at the end of this season. Rick Hendrick, who owns Gordon's team, has paid out of pocket by slapping Hendrickcars.com on the side of Mark Martin's No. 5 car. It takes more than winning these days to drive lucrative sponsorship deals. "It's going to be difficult for us race teams to stay in business without being able to have sponsors on our trucks or our cars," Busch said. It's not all doom an d gloom at the trac k. Budweiser has teamed wi th Kevin Harvick as a prima ry sponsor for most of the 20 11 season. The beer company 's familiar red paint schem e will be on Harvick's No. 2 9 Chevrolet for 20 races ne xt season, as well as the no npoints events at Dayto na and the annual All-Star rac e. The beer company will be an associate sponsor on t he remaining 16 Sprint Cu p races. Harvick is also an own er and fields teams in t he Nationwide and Truc ks Series. He secured sponso rship for Saturday's truc ks race from a company th at usually only advertised wi th drag racing. Harvick said he expects to have sponsorsh ip deals completed for ne xt season in about a month an d his teams may possibly ad d races to the schedule in 2011. "We've been very fort unate to have a lot of succe ss on the sponsorship side an d things are going great," he said. Harvick's Budweiser de al is believed to be wor th about $10 million. It's a steep dropoff fro m Carl Edwards'deal wi th Afflac a reported $2 6 million per year over thr ee years. It's been worth it in more robust times. "NASCAR historical ly has done a very, very stron g job at making their sponso rs whole, at making their spo nsors feel that their money 's well invested," Carter said Busch said drivers a re hampered by NASCAR 's policy of locking out seve ral potential sponsors. Sprint's exclusive namin g rights deal for the Cu p series eliminates other com munications companies li ke AT&Tfrom consideratio n, and big tobacco sponsorsh ip money is no longer we lcome in NASCAR. Sponsorship dries up for top NASCAR stars

Associated PressHONOLULU The elite c rime-fighting team of Hawaii Five-0" is back in t he islands this time with m ore bikinis, fewer stiff s uits and a remix of the s eries'classic theme song. The remake of the lege ndary series, which ran for 1 2 seasons from 1968 to 1 980, debuts Monday at 10 p .m. EDTon CBS with a l egacy to live up to. Like the original hit show, t he new version's cop team h unts down criminals, often e nding with the catch phrase Book em, Danno!" But the rebooted version a ims to add more witty bant er, character back story and e dginess to the formulaic d etective work of the first s eries, which preceded a g eneration of crime dramas. "You can do great action, a nd we do," said executive p roducer Peter Lenkov. "But w hat's fresh and different is t he character development a nd humor." Filmed onsite in Hawaii, Hawaii Five-0" aims to a ppeal to viewers by taking t hem to island scenes shot at s un-soaked beaches and l andmark locations includi ng Pearl Harbor, Iolani P alace and Waikiki. Alex O'Loughlin is r eplacing the original D etective Steve McGarrett, played by Jack Lord. As a former Navy SEAL, the new McGarrett has been recruited by Hawaii's governor to lead a task force against criminals and terrorists intruding into the United States through its Pacific islands. "He's part mercenary, and his tactics are pretty crazy. He does whatever he needs to do to get the job done," O'Loughlin said during a break from filming on site in Honolulu. "We have respect for what came before us, but we're not drawing from the old show." Unlike his predecessor, O'Loughlin is more likely to go into a suspect's house wearing a bulletproof vest, guns blazing. Alongside McGarrett is sidekick Danny "Danno" Williams (Scott Caan), a bythe-book detective who's less than pleased with McGarrett's full-speedahead attitude. "I don't think that he's a bad guy or anything," said Caan, who has appeared on "Entourage." Hardcover Fiction 1. "Freedom" by Jonathan Franzen (Farrar, Straus & Giroux) 2.

I have to break the bad n ews to many people that j ust because something is old t hat doesn't mean it is autom atically valuable. I have j unk, you have junk. My g randmother had junk, somet imes it is just older junk! A ge is not an automatic indic ator of value. Don't forget, s ome newer items can be v aluable too. When it comes to painti ngs, works by dead artists a re not always more valuable t han works by living artists. S o many people are seemi ngly waiting for that artist t o die so the prices for their w ork spike. Of course, a m arket correction may take p lace because an artist is d ead and can no longer prod uce work for the market, b ut that doesn't mean it is w ise to discount or devalue t he work of living artists. Also with regard to painti ng, many folks are misguide d in their belief that u nsigned works of art are not v aluable. It is incorrect to t hink that an unsigned painti ng is not valuable. In fact, d epending on the work of a rt, the artist, and the period i n which the work was prod uced, many valuable pieces r emain unsigned intentionall y. Don't believe that just b ecause you can't find a sign ature that your piece is w orthless. Also, many works o f art are not signed in the most obvious places. Also, signatures are easy to forge so make sure that the signed work that you are buying has an authentic signature. Authenticity impacts value too. Have you ever seen those old framed paintings with a metal label affixed to the frame? They may note the artist's name, nationality, the title of the painting, date, etc. I have seen many examples where this information, though well presented, is not accurate. Sometimes it is obvious that the frame has been reused on a different work of art even though the metal label is still attached to the frame. Like paintings, identifying ceramics can be tricky. For instance, the marks on the underside of most ceramic pieces demonstrate the diversity within the world of pottery. Those marks reveal a great deal about the origin of the piece, the length of time a pottery manufacturer has been in business, the location of the shop, and the list goes on. However, if you have a work of pottery with a number on it that resembles a date, like 1879, nine times out of ten that number is not a date and that number does not correspond to the year that the piece was made. Numbers marking ceramics are rarely dates. One last thing, if you think a work of art or an antique is ugly, you probably won't pay much attention to its value. For instance, you may think certain things like Picasso's paintings, Lalique perfume bottles, or post modern furniture are all ugly, but these items and many others may not your cup of tea but still are quite valuable. I advise audiences all over the world at my antiques appraisal events that taste aside, ugly should be your first clue to value. I've seen ugly items sell for big, big, big bucks.

P erformances begin at 7:30 p .m. in the intimate, 245s eat SFCC University Center A uditorium. The Jazz Series opens T hursday, Dec. 9, with a perf ormance by Dick Hyman on t he piano and Ken Peplowski o n the clarinet and saxop hone. Hyman is a wellr espected pianist, organist, a rranger, music director, and c omposer. He has composed f ilm scores and orchestral c ompositions, made numero us concert appearances, and r ecorded more than 100 a lbums under his own name. W hile developing his unique s tyle as a jazz pianist, H yman studied ragtime and t he earliest periods of jazz a nd paid tribute to that era b y recording the music of S cott Joplin, Jelly Roll M orton, and James P. J ohnson. Ken Peplowski, a c harismatic clarinetist and s axophone player, has d elighted audiences around t he world for more than 30 y ears with his warmth, wit, a nd talent. The performance i s sponsored by Barbara A. P latte, D.D.S., and Robert G illmore. On Wednesday, Jan. 12, j azz guitarist and vocalist M arty Grosz appears in the J azz Series. Recognized as o ne of today's foremost jazz r hythm guitarists and chord s oloists, Grosz is one of the r are major jazz guitarists w ho doesn't use an amplifie r. In recording sessions, this t alented artist is as much in d emand for his vocals as for h is driving guitar rhythm. W ith a delivery ranging from b arrelhouse abandon to w hispered restraint, Grosz is s ometimes raucous, often mischievous, and very much in the tradition of Fats Waller. Performance sponsors are Forrest H. Hilton, C.P.A., P.A., and Ruth Austin. The Dave Bennett septet will perform on Thursday, Feb. 3. Bennett is the ensemble's clarinetist, while his partners play bass, piano, vibes, and other instruments as they recreate the hits of Benny Goodman and other legendary clarinetists. The septet works out harmonized riffs and ensemble parts, famous from the original Goodman recordings of the '30s and '40s. In "Clarinet Swing Kings," they play tribute to Goodman, Artie Shaw, Acker Bilk, Woody Herman, and Pete Fountain. The performance sponsor is Anonymous. On Saturday, Feb. 19 the Bill and John Allred Quintet join the Jazz Series for "The Bill and John Allred Quintet Presents Kai, J.J., and More." Bill Allred is one of the most respected and busiest trombonists working today, as he headlines the Bill Allred Classic Jazz Band and other projects. His son, John, is considered one of the top trombonists in the world, appearing with such artists as Ray Charles and Natalie Cole, and performing with Toshiko Akiyoshi’s Big Band and the Woody Herman Orchestra under the direction of Frank Tiberi. The performance is sponsored by Charles and Anne Reynolds. The Jazz Series concludes its season March 19 with the ever-popular Salty Dogs Jazz Band. In the earliest days of jazz, Indiana was the place where great bands played, recorded, and set down their musical roots. Keeping in step with that tradition, the Salty Dogs Jazz Band was formed in 1947 by a group of Purdue University Students. Today, it remains a living testament to the belief that great, hot jazz will live forever. The roots of the Salty Dogs dig deep to the jazz musicians of the 1920s, including Hoagy Carmichael, King Oliver, the New Orleans Rhythm Kings, Jelly Roll Morton, Bix Biederbecke, and Louis Armstrong. The performance is sponsored by Charles and Anne Reynolds. The 2010-11 Jazz Series is sponsored by John and Evelyn Mills, Tom and Nancy Mitchell, Highlands Today (Media Sponsor) and SunCoast Media (Media Sponsor). Season subscriptions are on sale now and range from $100 to $110 for all four performances.

Did you know that the p lanting of trees is a very r eal consideration for rebala ncing the global carbon c ycle? Trees reduce atmosp heric carbon dioxide levels. T hey are natural filters, by u tilizing their limbs and l eaves, they absorb air pollut ants. The shade the trees p rovide creates cooler air t emperatures, which results i n the reduction of smog leve ls in some areas. In addition, trees assist in t he reduction of offensive o dors and reduce airborne d ust. Trees continue to grow u ntil they die and for cent uries they have provided m ankind with oxygen, food, w ood, medicines, rubber, e rosion control and shelter. I n addition, trees are useful t o wildlife because they prov ide homes, nesting areas, f ood, shelter, territory and r oosts. If you decide to plant a t ree, selecting the right tree f or the right place is a good f irst step in any landscape d esign. Proper planting is a lso important for getting y our tree off to a good start. T rees are like all living creat ures. They require more a ttention in the beginning to p romote a long, healthy life. Carefully choose the planting site. Trees are difficult to move once they are established. Check with local authorities for regulations on placement of trees. Some communities have ordinances restricting placement of trees within a specified distance of a street, sidewalk, streetlight, or other utilities. Before digging, make sure that all underground utilities are clearly marked. You wouldn't want to cut off the electric power to your community or risk injury. Carefully follow the planting instructions that come with your tree. If specific instructions are not available, follow these tips: Dig a hole about twice the size of the tree's root ball, or about one foot wider than the root system. The hole should be slightly shallower than the root ball. If the soil is especially heavy or wet, consider planting the tree slightly higher. Remove all materials from the root mass. This includes wires, string, burlap, and biodegradable containers. Neglecting this will hinder proper root growth. Gently place the tree in the center of the hole and position it to grow straight. If the tree has a prettier side, place it in the direction most frequently viewed. If planting a bare root tree, carefully spread the roots. Crumble the soil removed from the hole and cover the roots with it. As you add soil to fill in around the tree, lightly tamp the soil to collapse air pockets, or add water to help settle the soil. Air pockets around the roots can be devastating to a newly planted tree. Add about four inches of mulch wood chips, shredded bark, or grass clippings around the base of the tree, extending out to the tips of the outermost branches. A3-foot diameter circle of mulch is common. Mulching will retain moisture, reduce weeds, maintain a more even soil temperature, and eliminate mowing next to the delicate bark. Be sure to pull the mulch away from the tree trunk because decomposing mulch can cause rot problems. Finally, give the tree a thorough watering. If the root ball is extremely dry, allow water to trickle into the soil by placing the hose at the trunk of the tree. Young trees need protection against rodents, frost cracks, sunscald, lawnmowers, and weed whackers. Plastic guards are an inexpensive and easy control method. Light colored tree wraps can be used to protect the trunk from sunscald. Usually, staking trees is not necessary unless you live in an area with high winds. Aproperly planted and maintained tree will grow much faster and live much longer than one that is incorrectly planted. Trees can be planted almost anytime of the year as long as the soil is not frozen. However, early fall is the optimum time to plant trees. For the first year or two, especially after a week or so of extremely hot or dry weather, watch your tree closely for signs of moisture stress. If you see leaf wilting or hard, caked soil, water the tree well and slowly enough so the water soaks in rather than runs of f. Take the time to give you r tree a good start on life. Yo u and the next generation wil l enjoy the benefits of your backyard tree for years to come.

N o matter who you are or where yo u are on life's journey, you're we lcome here.PLACESTOWORSHIP CROSSWORDSOLUTION Aries (March 21-April 20) Aries, a f ew moments of complete solitude and s anctuary are on the horizon this week. M ake the most of this rarity and enjoy t he break from your hectic schedule. Taurus (April 21-May 21) Taurus, a business rival wants to infringe on y our territory. You are not about to let t hat happen. Higher-ups know that you h ave the goods to get the job done. Gemini (May 22-June 21) It might b e time to lay low for awhile, Gemini. W hen conflicts arise you want to stay b elow the radar until things smooth o ver. Thursday proves to be a challengi ng day. Cancer(June 22-July 22) Cancer, p ut your trust in someone close to you. Y ou will need this person in the weeks t o come to help you through a difficult s ituation. Chances are it could stretch on f or a while. Leo (July 23-Aug. 23) Leo, comp lacency is not your credo. Take matters i nto your own hands if you find things a ren't going according to how you see t hem. Do it right. Virgo (Aug. 24-Sept. 22) Virgo, you may have taken on more than you can handle. Now is the time to backtrack and see what items you can delegate to someone else ... and pronto. Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Libra, a work project that's baffled others will take a lot of hard work and determination. If anyone can get it done, it is you. This could be grounds for a raise. Scorpio (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Scorpio, recurring health woes could mean something is amiss and it's not just a coincidence. This is a good time to visit the doctor and get a check-up. Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) A silly mistake has the potential to snowball into something with a life of its own, Sagittarius. Just get a handle on the situation and things will quickly return to normal. Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 20) Use your instincts when making an important financial decision, Capricorn. While others are consulting charts and figures, stick with what your gut is telling you. Aquarius (Jan. 21-Feb. 18) Aquarius, you may need a little push to get motivated. That's OK. There are plenty of people who can offer the gentle support that you need to get by. Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20) Pisces, spend this week fostering any and all friendships that might have grown estranged in recent months.

Chelsea Clinton's wedd ing cake was baked without it. T he new Old Spice guy avoids the u biquitous protein to help stay b uff. In fact, odds are good you too h ave tried or at least encount ered a product with the gluten r emoved. Because gluten-free is what lowc arb was a decade ago: The "it" d iet discussed on daytime talk s hows, promoted by hyper-slim a ctresses and adopted by masses. G rocery aisles are stocked with the l ikes of gluten-free pasta, crackers, c ereal and beer. Americans are enthusiastically e xiling a dietary staple that wasn't e ven in most people's vocabulary a d ecade ago. But why? Unlike some other dietary b oogeymen like trans-fats, gluten i s not inherently bad to eat. Only a s mall percentage of people can't t olerate the protein, which occurs n aturally in wheat, barley and rye. P lus, banning gluten from your diet c an be really hard. Not only is gluten an essential e lement of traditional breads and p astas (it's the protein that gives t hem their structure), it often is u sed as a thickening agent in p rocessed foods, such as ketchup a nd ice cream. And cutting out g luten is no guarantee of weight l oss. The fad seems to be partly f ueled by the celebrity factor: P altrow talks it up on her website, C linton stirred online chatter this s ummer when she ordered a glutenf ree cake for her big day, and the m uscular guy on the funny Old S pice commercials recently told J ay Leno gluten is one of the t hings he cut from his diet. Then there are the claims that g oing "G-free" makes you feel m ore energetic. "I feel better when I don't do it. I f I go out to a restaurant with f riends and I have a beer and a plate of pasta I'm going to feel it the next day. No one wants a gluten hangover," said Silvana Nardone, former editor-in-chief of Every Day with Rachael Ray magazine. Nardone, the mother of a teenage boy with a gluten intolerance, just released a cookbook of glutenand dairy-free recipes titled "Cooking for Isaiah." These sort of claims are common, if hard to prove. But that hasn't slowed the industry's growth. U.S. sales of gluten-free food has more than doubled since 2005 to over $1.5 billion, according to the market research company Packaged Facts. And the growth spurt is expected to continue at least through 2012. Gluten does affect some people, notably people with celiac disease. But celiacs, who suffer an immune reaction if they eat food with gluten, such as bread or pasta, are estimated to represent less than 1 percent of the population. Some other people have less severe gluten allergies or sensitivities. Dr. Alessio Fasano, director of the Center for Celiac Research at the University of Maryland School of Medicine, figures that up to 7 or 8 percent of the U.S. population have some kind of sensitivity to gluten. Yet about a quarter of U.S. adults are either trying to reduce or completely avoid gluten in their diets, according to the marketing firm NPD Group's Dieting Monitor. That means most of the people eating gluten-free foods probably don't have to, but want to. "Some of the people we're talking about most are people who are dabbling in raw foods and dabbling in vegan and dabbling in different things and they see gluten-free as part of that world," said Shauna James Ahern, better known as the popular blogger "Gluten-Free Girl." Ahern, diagnosed with celiac at age 38 after feeling "low-level lousy" her whole life, said that even as dabblers drop the diet, they build awareness of gluten-free, which leads to more people getting diagnosed. That's why she thinks the diet will still be around in a decade. Many of these gluten watchers are people like Akiia James, a 33year-old news producer from Durham, N.C., who already was healthy and fit before she decided to cut out gluten and dairy severa l months ago. "The main thing is just feeling better after you eat, not feeling th e weight of eating," James said. "I mean, I never anymore feel like I'm stuffed ... I think I still eat th e same amount, but the ingredients play a big part." Why people report feeling bette r is not totally clear. And the conne ction may be indirect. People who eliminate gluten-rich foods may e at more produce, and therefore have a healthier diet overall, said Dee Sandquist, a spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association. Fasano suggests that gluten is generally harder to digest, perhap s because it was only introduced to the human diet about 10,000 year s ago. In evolutionary terms, that's not a lot of time to adapt to diges ting a new protein. Dr. Brian Bosworth, associate director of the Gastroenterology Fellowship Program at New York Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Corne ll Medical Center, noted that while gluten can certainly be an irritant to some people, he wouldn't make a blanket statement that it's harde r to digest for everyone. "I don't think that, in general, that there's a reason to strictly avoid it," said Bosworth, who has celiac disease. Sandquist says there's no harm in avoiding gluten, as long as you eat a balanced diet. But she said i t can be a challenge to eat a nutritionally sound without gluten, despite the recent proliferation of products. And watch out: just because a product is labeled gluten-free doe sn't mean it's low in calories. And some gluten-free prepared meals can run high in both calories and salt. "There are just as many calorie s, if not more, depending on the foo d choices," Sandquist said. "It's all about the food choices." Gluten-free has gone big time, but why so popular? FOOD APPhoto U.S. sales of gluten-free food has more than doubled since 2005 to over $1.5 billion, according to the market research company Packaged Facts. And the growth spurt is expected to continue at least through 2012. I feel better when I don't do it. If I go out to a restaurant with friends and I have a beer and a plate of pasta I'm going to feel it the next day. No one wants a gluten hangover.'SILVANANARDONE former editor-in-chief of Every Day with Rachel Ray'

DearAbby: The most embarrassing thing happened to me at the chiropractor's office. I typically see him before going to the gym, and change into my gym clothes in the waiting area bathroom. It's easier for my doctor to treat me when I'm not in my office attire. After completing my workout, I realized that my bra hadn't made it into my gym bag and must still be on the doctor's bathroom floor. I am embarrassed for two reasons: (1) He is single and handsome, and I don't want him to think I'm trying to send him a "signal" of some kind, and (2) it was my favorite bra! How do I begin to address this? Debbie" in Dallas Dear"Debbie": Your bra may be gone but I'm here to support you. Please stop feeling embarrassed. It's entirely possible that your chiropractor never saw the bra. Call the person who schedules your doctor's appointments, explain what happened, and ask if the item has been turned in. If it was, collect it when you go in for your next appointment or ask that it be sent to you. DearAbby: I reconnected with "Andy," a former high school classmate, and we started a relationship. Because of his actions last year the relationship ended. It started again several months ago. Currently it's on the right track. Andy is a great guy who fulfills almost everything I am looking for. He accepts me for who I am and doesn't judge me. He's polite and cares about me. My problem is, I'm not physically attracted to him. Abby, if he's "almost" everything I'm looking for, why am I not attracted to him? Am I blowing it with the one guy I'm supposed to be with, or is there someone else out there for me? Confused in Connecticut DearConfused: I wish you had mentioned what caused your breakup last year. If the reason you're not physically attracted to Andy is something he can change, you should talk to him about it. If it's nothing you can put your finger on, then talk with a counselor to see if the problem could be a fear of commitment on your part. But if it is neither, then face it you need to let him find someone who IS attracted to him. To marry someone feeling as you do would be dishonest and cheat you both out of a full and happy union. DearAbby: I have been seeing a guy, "Bill," who I believe is my soul mate. We have discussed our future and decided that after colleg e we will have four kids. We love each other, and we're trying to wait until we're married to have sex. I talked to my parents about it, and Mom offered to put me on the pill. I don't see any reason no t to make love other than I always thought I'd wait unt il my honeymoon. Bill isn't pressuring me, either. I'm afraid that if we do it will complicate our relationship. I guess right now I'm looking for reasons not to because I don't have any. Is it wrong for me to want this? In Love in Washingto n DearIn Love: I don't think so. You're an idealisti c young woman who would like to give her husband a gift on her wedding night th at can be given only once. It takes self-control, discipline and determination to accom plish that particularly with the emphasis on sex in popu lar culture. If you wait to have sex until you are married, you will never regret it If you don't, you might. So hang in there until you're sure you're ready or you have said "I do."

Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. Today's parents and e specially those in the educ ated class who consume p arenting information via n ewspaper columns, books, a nd seminars tend toward w hat I call "psychological t hinking." They assign psyc hological meaning and sign ificance to any behavior on t he part of their children that i s the least bit out of kilter. So, for example, a somew hat clingy preschool child i sn't simply introverted; r ather, the child is insecure a nd needing additional attent ion because a younger sibl ing came along before she w as able to completely work t hrough toddler dependency i ssues and blah blah blah. T hus, something that is no b ig deal becomes a big deal. The psychological interp retation mystifies the c hild's behavior, raises the p arent's anxiety level, and g enerates responses that are n ot only confusing to the c hild but also make the problem-if in fact the behavior in question is problematic to begin with much, much worse. This came to mind recently when a mother asked me to help her figure out why her 3-year-old is throwing wild tantrums and what to do about them. She said, "You probably need to know that she's adopted." I needed to know this because several adoption specialists had informed said Mom that adopted children were burdened by unique "bonding issues" that engendered confusion, insecurity, anger, fear of rejection, and other forms of psychological angst. Therefore, adopted children need to be treated with kid gloves, which Mom was dutifully doing. I stopped her and said, "Your daughter is throwing tantrums for the same reason non-adopted children throw tantrums." "Which is?" she asked, somewhat taken aback. "You are not obeying her properly." It doesn't matter what the child's history or circumstances, all tantrums are equal. They are expressions of what I call "The Almighty I Am" the belief, shared by every child, that he/she is the only fish in the pond of any significance and that everyone else parents especially exists solely to serve. Convinced that her daughter's tantrums were a sign of deep-seated psychological rumblings, Mom catered to them. She figured out what her daughter wanted her to do and she did it. In short, she fed the beast. In turn, the beast grew more beastly. (In some cases, the beast is eventually given a name: childhood bipolar disorder.) I asked, "Do you think it's good for your daughter to believe that it's your duty to obey her?" She answered correctly her first step toward rehabilitation. As long as her daughter's high-self-esteem seizures were the expression of psychological commotion, Mom's ability to deal effectively with them was paralyzed. In fact, the commotion was primarily in Mom's head, not her daughter's. Released from the bondage of psychobabble, Mom is now able to give said seizures their due which is to say, nothing.

Amazing! Instead of a flat screen of m oving pictures, I felt as if I h ad stepped into the scene f loating along with the astron auts in their high-tech world o f delivering and maintaining t he Hubble Space Telescope. While at the Kennedy S pace Center with my husb and, Ken, and our grandson, W alter, we sat breathless as t he starry sky enveloped and v isually inspired us. The narration pointed to t he vastness, the incrediblen ess of our universe, Earth, a nd the planets and stars. We w ere encouraged to wonder a bout what our eyes have not y et seen. But, something else was h appening to me as I sat t here spellbound. My eyes f illed with tears as my wond er turned to worship. Our God is huge and a mazing. He is awesome and a we inspiring. This experie nce only magnified that truth and I knew God's presence in that theater as tears threatened to blur the vision of this magnificent display. It's one thing to be in awe of the creation; it's another to stand in awe (or fall on one's face) in awe of the Creator. If this is what he can bring into being; imagine knowing him! The Bible helps express those thoughts in Psalm 19: 1, NKJV, when it says "The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork." Or how about Psalm 8:3 & 4 that declares, "When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him" I was quite moved. But, God was about to unveil something else that my mind could never have dreamed of by itself. In the distance a textured, round brownish circle of a star began moving closer and, thereby, getting larger. The glow from within its center was almost blinding. And I suddenly saw the crown of thorns worn by my Lord on the day of his crucifixion and his Shekinah glory emanating its amazing light. The Bible calls Jesus Christ the Bright and Morning Star. Perhaps his glory never had shown brighter than that day of his sacrificial suffering for you and me. The Hubble Telescope is revealing more and more to us of what has always been there. How gracious God is to allow mankind the joy of discovery at every phase of history. Join me in wonder and worship of the One called Wonderful.

LIVING 16B PAGE News-Sun Sunday, September 16, 2010 Natalie Portman:"The Professional," "Heat" and "Beautiful Girls" cemented Portman's place in our pop culture consciousness when she was just a teenager. She picked up an Academy Award nomination for "Closer" and pulled at our heartstrings with "Garden State." She's taken on her share of both edgy ("Vfor Vendetta") and commercial ("Star Wars: Episodes 1, 2 and 3") work. This fall she's found the perfect director for critical accolades: Darren Aronofsky. His last film, "The Wrestler," gained nominations for Mickey Rourke and Marisa Tomei. The major difference this year? Portman will win it.James Franco:He has a harrowing tale of survival ("127 Hours") and a harrowing tale of beating censorship ("Howl"). This is the season where people realize Franco isn't just a comic actor, though his time on "Freaks and Geeks" and guest appearances on "30 Rock" show he's also gifted in that department.Robert Duvall:We're cheating slightly here because "Get Low" received a limited release in the summer, but Duvall's seventh Academy Award nomination (and second win) is too juicy a story to pass up. Look for Duvall to give a lovely acceptance speech at the tender age of 80. And if you haven't seen "Get Low" it may be time to put that on the calendar.Anne Hathaway:Like Portman, she's paid her dues in comedy ("Get Smart") while still taking on challenging roles ("Brokeback Mountain"). She's also already received a nomination for "Rachel Getting Married," so Academy voters will be familiar with her work. Fall is the most dynamic season of the entertainment calendar, with studios attempting to wring every last drop out of the box office while actively politicking for awards nominations. Luckily, not every film is a gut-wrenching drama, and the next three months also feature a sprinkling of comedy to get you through the rainy days. Here are 25 films to be aware of as the leaves change color, broken out by potential box office hits, welcome comic relief, the dreaded "potential disaster" and, finally, Academy Award contenders. PROJECTED BOX OFFICE HIT "The Town" (Sept. 17): Ben Affleck's second directorial effort looks like a treat; shades of the modern bankrobbing classic "Heat" abound. The film also features the wildly underrated Rebecca Hall, unsung hero of "Vicky Cristina Barcelona." "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" (Sept. 24): Oliver Stone's follow up on Gordon Gekko closed the Cannes Film Festival to largely positive reviews. But will audiences want anything to do with a movie about the economy? COMIC RELIEF "Easy A" (Sept. 17): Emma Stone ("Zombieland") has long been poised for a breakout role. It looks like this high school twist on Hawthorne's "Scarlet Letter" will be the film that pushes her over the top. POTENTIAL DISASTER "Devil" (Sept. 17): The first trailer noted the story was written by M. Night Shyamalan. Then they cut Shyamalan's name out of the marketing completely. Neither move is a good sign. ACADEMY AWARD CONTENDERS "Catfish" (Sept. 17): One thing is clear: the Academy Award winner for Best Documentary is likely to come from September. Will it be "Catfish," a tale of lies, impersonation and hurt feelings? "Waiting for Superman'" (Sept. 24): Or perhaps Best Documentary will go to this true life story of the failings of the education system. "Howl" (Sept. 24): Audiences will be wowed by James Franco's take on beat poet Allen Ginsberg. Uniquely, the film is a hybrid animation/courtroom drama, difficult to define much like the poetry of Ginsberg himself. PROJECTED BOX OFFICE HIT "Paranormal Activity 2" (Oct. 22): The last one cleared nearly $200 million on a pauper's budget. Even half that take will work for Paramount Pictures this time around. COMIC RELIEF "Red" (Oct. 15):Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren star as former C.I.A. agents on the run. Did we mention Mirren fires a machine gun? POTENTIAL DISASTER "Saw 3D" (Oct. 29): It's a race to see which phenomenon audiences are more tired of: The "Saw" franchise or overpriced 3-D movies. ACADEMY AWARD CONTENDERS "The Social Network" (Oct. 1):Skeptics initially thought "a drama about the creation of Facebook?" And then the trailer was released. Now everyone wants to "like" it. "Nowhere Boy" (Oct. 8): If you're looking for dramatic fodder, you could do far worse than the life and times of John Lennon. "Secretariat" (Oct. 8): If there's one thing The Academy loves, it is tales of inspiring animals. Look for this to capture a few of the Oscars that eluded "Seabiscuit." PROJECTED BOX OFFICE HIT "Unstoppable" (Nov. 12): Denzel Washington and Chris Pine star in a film by Tony Scott ("Man on Fire") about an unstoppable train. That reads like a recipe for box office success! "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One" (Nov. 19): The "Potter" franchise is getting darker as it nears the finish line, but audiences of all ages should make this the most successful film of the year. COMIC RELIEF "Due Date" (Nov. 5): If trailers count for anything, then we're in for a treat when Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis team up for a new spin on the classic road trip movie. POTENTIAL DISASTER "Burlesque" (Nov. 24): Speaking of trailers, this might be the worst effort released this year. The old adage is "If they couldn't find any decent footage to show in the trailer, how do you think the movie will turn out?" ACADEMY AWARD CONTENDERS "127 Hours" (Nov. 5): Danny Boyle, only one year removed from his Best Director run, returns with this "based on real events" tale of a trapped hiker. Reviews out of the festival circuit have been largely positive. "Love and Other Drugs" (Nov. 24): Anne Hathaway is looking for her second nomination for this Edward Zwick ("Blood Diamond") dramedy that also stars Jake Gyllenhaal. PROJECTED BOX OFFICE HIT "Tron: Legacy" (Dec. 17): The momentum for the "Tron" sequel has been building for three years. Look for audiences to flock to the original CGI concept. COMIC RELIEF "How Do You Know" (Dec. 17):Comedy all-stars Paul Rudd, Reese Witherspoon and Owen Wilson team u p for this December laugher. The bonus? Jack Nicholson! POTENTIAL DISASTER "Little Fockers" (Dec. 22): The "Fockers" franchise enters its "Three Men and a Little Lady" phase. ACADEMY AWARD CONTENDERS "Black Swan" (Dec. 1): Darren Aronofsky ("The Wrestler") brings Natalie Portman to the big screen in a reimagining of "Swan Lake." Or perha ps the film is the story of the musical "Swan Lake" as Portman plays a baller ina. Whatever the case, you can expect plenty of hardware to head this directio n come late February. "The Fighter" (Dec. 10): David O. Russell ("Three Kings") directs Christian Bale and Mark Wahlberg in a boxing movie. Given the release date, it's "Raging Bull" all over again. Early buzz has Bale as a frontrunner in the supporting actor category. "True Grit" (Dec. 22): This is a remake of the 1969 classic that starred John Wayne. The Coen Brothers are directing, and Jeff Bridges is attemptin g to fill John Wayne's shoes. It doesn't g et more Academy than that.
