www.facebook.com/newssun By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Acommunity pharmaceutical take back program will be held from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Saturday. The countywide event will include all police departments and is being headed by the Highlands County Sheriff's Office. Local law enforcement as well as Suzanne Crews, Parish Nurses Faith in Action coordinator, would like all residents that have any old prescription or over-thecounter medications to bring them to one of four drop-off locations. "This is a great opportunity for everyone to properly dispose of unwanted, expired, or unused over-the-counter and prescription drugs," explained Crews. Improper disposal of medications has become an increasingly more hazardous problem for the environment. "When you flush medicines it gets into our ground water; its a tremendous problem for the environment. This program allows for the medicines to be properly disposed of," Crews said. The four drop-off locations are: Highlands County Sheriff's Office branch in Lakeshore Mall in Sebring; the Avon Park Police Department at 304 Pleasant St.; the Lake Placid Police Department at 8 N. Oak Ave.; and the Sebring Police Department at 307 Ridgewood Drive. Each location will have boxes available to leave the medications in; there is nothing to sign and no information will be taken from residents. The Sebring Police Department location also has a SFCC falls to HillsboroughPAGE1BEasy home upgradesPAGE12BMan jailed for child abusePAGE2ASebring won't fund archivistPAGE2ANEWS-SUN Highlands County's Hometown Newspaper Since 1927 Friday-Saturday, September 24-25, 2010www.newssun.comVolume 91/Number 115 | 50 cents www.newssun .com 079099401001 HighLow 92 76Complete Forecast PAGE 12A More afternoon thunderstorms around Forecast Question: Should there be a state law against texting while driving?

Art League participating in Not Quite 12 Hours of Sebring' By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comLAKE PLACID After a spirited, often passionate debate, the town council voted to turn down two grants awarded to the city for the purpose of building a hurricane shelter. This means the project has died and nothing will be constructed. Problems with the project developed when members of the town council worried the town could not afford to operate or maintain the building once it was built. The project included much more than a hardened shelter. An auditorium for local events and a new government center were included in the design. Despite donated land, $1.2 million in grant funding, approximately $300,000 in town funding, and record low prices and costs in the construction industry, the proposed design still threatened to create cost overruns especially as the proposed budget did not include any finishing details, like furnishings, carpeting, irrigation or kitchen fixtures. There was additional alarm when council members discovered the proposed operating budget for the building did not include a line item for repairs and general maintenance. Aphilosophical difference of opi nion emerged between council mem bers. Steve Bastardi held the view th at the town government had to opera te as a business, making sure any ne w building paid for itself, or ideall y, made a profit. LP rejects grants, won't build shelter See SHELTER, page 7A By TAMARALUSH Associated Press WriterTAMPA Doctors, scientists and pu blic health experts began sketching the ou tlines Wednesday of a large-scale study of the health effects of the BPoil spill o n cleanup workers and the public, hoping to include thousands of people in a revie w funded by BP.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING While the city council did approval a stop-gap, one-time-only payment of $8,500 toward funding the Sebring archivist position for one last year, members present made it clear Tuesday they did not believe government should pay the cost especially the city government. "Money (for an archivist) should be raised privately," Scott Stanley said. Council president John Clark said, "I agree with Mr. Stanley and his stance." While council members Margie Rhoades and Bud Whitlock were not present, those members who were there did not think the outcome would have been different. John Griffin's original motion to provide a larger portion of the archivist's salary, for example, died for a lack of a second. Underlying the debate of who preserves a community's history was a separate issue. Since its inception, the position of Sebring archivist has been funded by the county as a result of an agreement between the county and the Sebring Historical Society. The society provided $85,000 for the county to use as matching funds when it applied for grants to build a new library in downtown Sebring back in the late 1980s, early 1990s. In exchange, the county guaranteed the society space in the building for a permanent archive and the funding for an archivist to collect and maintain the documents. In its most recent budget, however, the county did not provide funding for the archivist, passing that expense on to the city for the first time. "Without being mean or malicious," said Clark, "facing broken promises from the county leaves a foul taste in my mouth." The only reason Clark agreed to the stop-gap measure was because the county had "pulled the rug out from under the society." He warned, however, that next year, "not a nickel" should go to the archivist. Mayor George Hensley, who has no vote on the council, pointed out the irony of doing away with the archivist at the very time the city is gearing up for its centennial. "History is a vital part of the celebration," he said. Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID Once again the r esidents of Lake Placid kicked off t he start of a new school year and t he end of summer with a N eighborhood Mega Festival, t hanks to the coordination of Teon R obinson The events started in July and ran t hrough August, and were held t hroughout Highlands County and a ll the way into Fort Lauderdale. Events included a sports and tale nt showcase, basketball tournam ent, slam dunk contest, flag footb all tournament, 40-yard dash, W acky Field Day, car and bike s how, fashion show, hair shown, S unshine cookout, youth extravag anza and so much more. Robinson returned to Highlands C ounty as a student still enrolled in c ollege classes to put on these festiv als. Now a college graduate, he c ontinues to bring structured fun to his family neighborhood, now spreading the excitement through other communities. Robinson said, "The Neighborhood Mega Festival is just an idea that truly manifested itself into such a creative event due to the hard work, effort and dedication of so many others besides myself. What I did was lay the foundation, but the true key to the success of the event lies with the sponsors who gave their undoubtedly support, the communities that came out and witnessed local youth showcase their talents, and the volunteers who worked tireless hours making sure that such an event would be possible. "Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine how a creative thought in my mind would effect the lives of so many people. I just give the glory and honor to God for giving me such a vision to make a positive difference in the lives of others. I can't take credit at all by myself. Those sponsors who helped make The Neighborhood Mega Festival Event possible include Central Contractors, Bogus Printing, Wheeler Farms, Don Cram, Happiness Farms, Central Florida Glass & Mirror, Lake Placid Marine, Miller's Central Air, Lake Country Jewelers, Lake Placid Glass & Mirror, Bevis Concrete & Construction, Lake Placid Podiatry, Jernigan Racing & Auto Repair, Chef Buddy Italian American Deli, Steven Bair, Windows & Walls Home Fashions, Finishing Touches, Ida's Hairport & Unique Boutique, Artistic Frames Graphics & Signs, and Lake Placid Middle and Lake Placid High schools. "The Neighborhood Mega Festival's purpose was, is, and will continue to be to spark a passion for constant progress in all forms of life and to raise lifelong visionaries and leaders in each community. Because of the efforts of many people working in harmony, I strongly belie ve that we are achieving that purpose ," Robinson said.

Police say Hunter was home alone caring for a three-month-old and an 18month-old on Aug. 11. The heavily redacted arrest report didn't give a gender for either child.

Special to the News-SunSEBRING Drug Free H ighlands successfully o btained a modification of O rdinance 09-10-Section 1, s ubsection 3-4(b), on the P oint of Sale Health Warning f rom the Highlands County B oard of County C ommission on Tuesday. The o rdinance requires a change i n the wording of signage at l ocations of alcohol vendors. The coalition's mission is t o reduce substance abuse in o ur community, especially a mong local youth. This ordin ance change satisfies the c oalition action plan's envir onmental strategy to change a nd/or strengthen public polic ies in an effort to increase p ublic awareness of the dang ers of using alcohol, tobacc o and other drugs. Energy d rinks containing alcohol h ave been added to the warni ng sign as well as noting to r educe health risks to not d rink under the age of 21. O ccasionally, energy drinks c ontaining alcohol are disp layed in the same cooler as n on-alcoholic energy drinks, c reating confusion for cons umers and store clerks. The n ew sign encourages respons ible consumption of alcoh olic beverages by adults w hile strengthening the mess age that it is illegal to drink u nder 21 years of age. To show support, present a t the BOCC meeting were c oalition partners and supp orters: Sheriff Susan Benton and Debbie Lees, Highlands County Sheriff's Office; John Varady, Heartland Education Consortium; Charlie Nelson and Jackie Rawlings, TriCounty Human Services Inc.; Holly Parker, Healthy Start Coalition; Greg Smith, YMCA; Gabe Read, Optimist's Club; Jeff Roth, Children's Advocacy Center; Venise Jackson, DCF Community SARAconsultant; Karen Bebnowski and Carrie Hartes, DCF; Erin Hess, Highlands County Health Department; and Lisa Lucas, RE/MAX Realty Plus. The Highlands County Health Department will print the new flyers and Highlands County beer distributor Bernie Little will deliver them to each vendor. Linda Conrad, supervisor, Highlands County Zoning Department, was instrumental in assisting with this ordinance modification. All new alcohol vendors receive their licenses through her department. She will provide copies of the flyer to all new licensees. Jackie Rawlings, Drug Free Highlands, chair, thanked the county commission for their continued support of the coalition's efforts to reduce substance abuse among Highlands County's youth. www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, September 24, 2010Page 3A SERVICE … 6 DAYS A WEEK 2833 Hwy 27 S. € Avon Park € 453-CART (2278) Email us at: ezgotxt@aol.comAmerican Golf Cart Golf Cart BatteriesFrom $5995& Up+ Tax & ExchangeCLEARANCE2006 CartsWhile They Last!

S mall businesses in Florida are hurting as t he recession has m ade bankers q ueasy about lendi ng money even t o businesses that h ave always paid t heir bills but now n eed a lifeline until t he economy i mproves. With construction jobs in t he dumps for more than two y ears and the BPoil disaster i n the Gulf this summer havi ng caused millions of dollars i n losses to Florida's tourism i ndustry, many small busin esses are teetering and need h elp. The Small Business Jobs A ct provides the type of s timulus small businesses n eed not a year from now b ut today. The legislation, p ushed by the Obama administration, was stalled in the U.S. Senate, held victim to partisan sniping. Then, a political "miracle" happened. Two Republicans recently split from their party's intransigence and backed the legislation. Florida Sen. George LeMieux and Sen. George Voinovich of Ohio crossed party lines for good reason: small businesses in their states desperately need the help. It's also true neither senator is running for election. Whatever the motivation, the result is a plus for small businesses and Florida's economy. LeMieux deserves credit for helping break the stalemate. The bill's provisions will cut taxes for small businesses so that they can invest and hire more workers. It will free up money for community banks to lend to business owners. It also helps small businesses that export goods crucial for South Florida's economy. ... The legislation has the support of Associated Industries of Florida, the Small Business Council of the Florida Chamber of Commerce, the Florida Realtors Association, the Florida Bankers Association, Enterprise Florida, 60 Plus Association and the Florida Auto Dealers Association. Hardly a group of rabid liberals. ... All the provisions were created to not add to the national debt, too. There was no excuse for the GOPleadership's maneuvers to stall the bill in the Senate only political machinations of the worst kind. ... Congress needs to move quickly now that common sense has trumped electionseason shenanigans.

Eleanor Van W ie Avon Pa rk B.A. Cox Plumbing provides outstanding serviceEditor: As a prelude, let me say I have lived in the same hous e for more than 42 years. As a consequence, you can easily see that it has often been ne cessary to call on our neighborhood professionals for typical maintenance problems. Today, Sept. 14, I cannot say enough about the servic e I received from B.A. Cox Plumbing Inc. He has done work for me in the past, so I did not hesitate to call on hi m again for help when a problem developed. The particulars are unimportant. Suffice it to say tha t he arrived when he said he would. He was courteous, humorous, more than compe tent and corrected the problems (there were several) and, since some of the difficulty was due to my own stu pidity, made absolutely no reference to the extra work my stupidity caused. Now for the punch line; not only was I more than sa tisfied with the results of his successful labors, but I was dumbfounded by the reason ableness of his bill. Frankly I expected to pay a significan tly higher total than he presented me with. He's my gu y for any other problems of th is nature. If you want excellent, courteous, reasonably priced plumbing service, you will not go wrong with B.A. Cox Plumbing Inc. Richard H. Picka rd Sebrin g Bouquet It's back-to-school time. What can w e do to give our children the best c hance for success? Talk to them. "Going Big," an episode from the C hicago Public Radio podcast "This A merican Life," highlights social a ctivist and educator Geoffrey C anada's attempts to break the cycle of p overty in Harlem. Canada points to 1 980s research in Kansas City by a pair o f psychologists who did a "close-up s tudy of two sets of families, one group i n which parents were on welfare, and a nother in which the parents held prof essional jobs. It turned out that the b iggest difference between the two sets o f homes was language." The shocking discovery was the kids with professional parents heard 2 0 million more words in the first three y ears of their lives than the kids on w elfare." That's no typo 20 million! In the f irst three years of life! That's 18,000 m ore words per day! This was "mostly just the regular jibb er jabber of parents talking to their c hildren, and those extra words had a h uge effect on their verbal ability. It was stunning news that the biggest factor in determining a child's later success in school wasn't any of the things we always assumed to be true. It wasn't money, it wasn't parental education, it wasn't race. It was the sheer number of words your parents spoke to you as a child." The staggering 20 million number takes a while to process, but it confirms what we observe happening every day. Many parents today would rather plug in their children than talk with them. It's bad enough that television and video game systems have become omnipresent baby-sitters in many households, but now we even have DVD players built into vehicles. What a wasted opportunity to talk to our children. They're a captive audience. One of my favorite memories is of our young son Nick long ago asking from the back seat, "Where do Steelers live, Daddy?" Of course I replied, "In Pittsburgh," which seemed to satisfy his curiosity. It was only later, through more discussion, that I realized he meant "stealers," as in thieves. But rather than confuse the issue, I figured, Pittsburgh? Close enough. When our sons were growing up, before the era of plug-in children, we traveled by van through 48 states. We had to talk to them and entertain them between stops, but we did not have to drag them away from a DVD or Game Boy to see the awesome beauty of the Grand Canyon or to learn the historical significance of the White House. Cell phones are another obvious diversion. How often have we seen an adult walking with a child or pushing a stroller, but totally ignoring the youngster while talking or texting on the phone? Another missed opportunity to engage the child in conversation. In our weird, wired world, so many distractions compete with our children for attention, but let's turn everything off and get busy. There are more than 18,000 words our children need to hear from us today. Fink is a citizen member of the Times Recorder Editorial Board.

It does things that are for the collective good." He pointed to the beautification program that has added to the town's landscape. "The town might lose a little money every year," Royce said, "but (the civic center) is an opportunity to create an attractive asset." Bastardi said, "I don't want to be short sighted, but I'm tremendously scared to take on something that might fail." He added that the town has committed itself to expanding its utility services by buying two utility companies. "I think this is a clear decision," Bastardi said. "I'm not saying (the civic center) was a bad idea, but we need to put our money into the real opportunity. Utilities will serve us. We need to communicate to the county and everyone how serious we are. "I think when people look back this will be the defining moment in Lake Placid (history) the expansion of utilities." Council member Debra Worley voted with Bastardi against accepting the grant money. She did so she said because there was no time to review the latest figures before the grant deadline of Oct. 13. "I need more time," she said, "and I don't have it." Council member Cheryl Davis voted with Royce to go ahead with the project. The tie was broken by Mayor John Holbrook. "It's my gut feeling," Holbrook said. "You have to prove to me we can not only build, but maintain the center." Continued from page 1A In some cases, customers have called to say their new cans did not have enough capacity, he said. Others have called to say the cans are too big and difficult to handle. In either case, Miller said, the city will make adjustments. Call 471-5109 to arrange for container changes. Miller said the new system means the city owns the trash cans, which are assigned to an address, not to the people living at the address. Because the city council voted to provide the typical residential customer with two 30-gallon cans, there will be an additional fee for those who require larger cans, or more than two of the 30-gallon size. Acustomer may trade out one 64-gallon container for two 30-gallon containers without additional fees. The additional fee amounts, however, have not yet been decided and are still under review by the city council. There is no fee for trading from a larger can to a smaller one. As of now, Miller h as more trash containers o n order. His plan is to fi ne tune the routes that a re already working befo re expanding pick-ups to oth er neighborhoods. He es timates it will take abo ut three weeks. Miller expects to com plete the entire conversio n by the middle of 2011. Other than contain er capacity, customers ha ve expressed concerns regar ding the holiday seaso n, Miller said especial ly because the extra cookin g and gift wrapping over se veral weeks generate a lot of extra trash. Miller said the ci ty would schedule as man y extra pick-ups as need ed over the various holidays to keep pace with the flow. Bulk trash pick-ups w ill not be affected. By bu lk trash, the city means o ld sofas, appliances, mattres ses and so forth. Because the city's sanit ation trucks equipment no w vary, however, Miller as ks residents to call an advan ce request for a bulk tra sh pick-up. Use the city ha ll main number for a wo rk order, 471-5100. Continued from page 1A met in Tampa on Wednesday to discuss how to conduct the study. "It would be great to get some sort of sense about the larger community and larger population," said Robert Wallace, a committee member and a professor of epidemiology at the University of Iowa. "To tell the public, This is where you fit in terms of what we've found in terms of health effects.' That's very important to me." Researchers hope to enroll some 27,000 people who participated in oil cleanup work for the study. There has not been much work done on how oil spills, dispersants and the oil-dispersant mix affect human health, experts said. Of the 38 large oil tanker spills in past 50 years, only 8 were studied for human health effects and the oil disaster in the Gulf affected a larger area and more people than most of those spills. "Research has typically been short-term," said Dr. Lynn Goldman, committee chair and dean of the George Washington University School of Public Health and Health Services. Researchers will begin looking for volunteers for the health study in the next month. Experts at the meeting admitted that they are starting the study late; fewer people are working or volunteering for the cleanup and fewer are coming into contact with heavy oil. The BP-leased rig Deepwater Horizon exploded off the Louisiana coast on the night of April 20, killing 11 workers and setting off a massive spill that ultimately led to more than 200 million gallons of oil spewing from BP's undersea well. Last week, a permanent cement plug sealed BP's well. Continued from page 1A MCTphoto Many beaches were closed to swimming this summer due to the oil spill in the Gulf. Study to focus on oil spill health issues Trash system upgrade expanding in Sebring Shelter plans stopped in Lake Placid Associated PressWASHINGTON M ore bad news for D emocrats clinging to c ontrol of Congress: I ndependent voters are n early as grumpy as R epublicans about polit ics this year. In an Associated PressG fK Poll this month, 58 p ercent of independents a nd 60 percent of R epublicans said politics i s making them angry, c ompared with 31 percent o f Democrats who said s o. About 7 in 10 indep endents and Republicans w ere disgusted, compared w ith 4 in 10 Democrats, a nd independents and R epublicans were likelier t han Democrats to be disa ppointed, depressed and f rustrated. As for positive emot ions, independents and R epublicans were half as l ikely as Democrats to be i nspired and less prone to b e hopeful, excited and p roud. The figures are the late st cautionary note for D emocrats, who face a N ov. 2 Election Day in w hich the sluggish econom y and President Barack O bama's tepid popularity g ive Republicans a strong c hance to capture control o f the House and perhaps t he Senate. They also help e xplain why independe nts, who can be pivotal i n many congressional r aces, prefer their GOP c andidate over the D emocrat by 52 percent t o 36 percent which g rows to 62 percent to 29 p ercent among independe nts considered likeliest t o vote. "There's a yellow light f lashing" for Democrats i n the numbers, said Ann C rigler, a political scie nce professor at the U niversity of Southern C alifornia who has studi ed the relationship b etween voter behavior a nd emotions. Combined with other f indings, independents' s ullenness underscores h ow difficult it will be for D emocratic candidates to w in them over this elect ion. Only about a third of i ndependents say the c ountry is moving in the r ight direction and more t han half say Obama is d oing a poor job as presid ent. Three-quarters disa pprove of Congress, o nly about a third want D emocrats to control C apitol Hill next year and m ore than 8 in 10 call the e conomy poor similar t o Republicans and e xceeding the two-thirds o f Democrats who say so. "I'm not happy with R epublicans," said Ed P erry, 66, an independent f rom Lowell, Ohio, who t hinks government is too l arge and expressed anger i n the poll. "But I'm reall y unhappy with D emocrats." Independents'feelings a bout politics have sunk a long with everyone e lse's since Obama's N ovember 2008 election. T hey're more than twice a s likely to be disappointe d and five times likelier t o be angry than they w ere in an AP-GfK Poll t aken days after Obama's v ictory. They're also half a s likely to say they are p roud and excited. Among independents w ho said in this month's p oll that they supported O bama in 2008, only a q uarter say their vote this f all will be a show of supp ort for him. More than 8 in 10 e xpress frustration and d isappointment, and just u nder half trust D emocrats most to handle t he economy. Independents as upset as Republicans, poll indicates NEWS-SUN€ 385-6155

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comIn a showdown at distric tleading McKeel Tuesda y, Avon Park got a look at ho w they measure up. And despite a three-gam e sweep by the Lady Wildca ts, the Red Devils showed th at they belong in the top-tier of the district standings. "Yes, McKeel is ve ry good," head coach Stephan ie Devlin said. "And to be ho nest, I can't tell you we play ed badly. We just made som e mistakes and they didn't." And yet, despite the poli sh shown by the strong McKe el program, Avon Park play ed right with them, keepin g things close in each game of the match, especially the 2 624 final game that show ed the mettle of the Devils. "Some of the rallies we re really long, like four to fi ve minutes," Devlin said. "A ll the games were close and w e often had the lead. But th ey have a girl that's about fiv efoot-ten that can hit from t he front or the back. All we c an do is prepare for next time. Matches like this, with a stepped up intensity an d focus, plays a big part in th at preparation as well, with t he team seeing what it is cap able of.

"We're in a monster conference and Hillsborough is a very good, top team Special to the News-SunSaturday, Sept. 18 marked t he fifth game for the S ebring Youth Football assoc iation. The Sebring Thunderbolts p layed at the Highlands C ounty Sports Complex a gainst the Desoto Bulldogs. The stands and field were c overed in blue as Desoto f ans looked a lot like the h ome team because their c olors are blue and white l ike Sebring. With the season half way o ver, teams are looking at t he stats and the talk of playo ffs is widespread througho ut the MFFCC association. Each game day and every W" that is earned gets them o ne step closer to getting to t he playoffs. Sebring teams are worki ng hard and fighting every s tep of the way in hopes that w e have a couple of teams in t he playoffs to represent S ebring Youth Football. The 2-3 Thunderbolt Flag t eam, coached by Kirby W hitehouse, got things starte d against a tough Desoto f lag team. Sebring scored the first t ouchdown of the game, taki ng a 7-0 lead, but the B ulldogs came raging back t o take the lead and control o f the game, ultimately d efeating the Thunderbolts with a final score of 20-7. The 2-3 Thunderbolt Mitey-Mite team, coached by Chris Hawthorne, took the field with the Bulldogs. The Thunderbolts offense, led by Shamar Hawthorne, who ran for several yards during the game, struggled throughout the day. The Bulldogs defense was too much for the Thunderbolts as they shut down the home team's offense, thus ending in a loss for the Mitey Mite team with a final score of 21-0. The 3-2 Thunderbolt Pee Wee team, coached by Tim Hooks, took the field for one tough, dogfight of a game. Sebring scored the first touchdown and went on to kick for the two-point conversion which gave them an 8-0 lead. Sebring's impressive defense overpowered the Bulldogs and stopped them in their tracks each time they took possession, leading the Thunderbolts to a win with a final score of 8-0. The Final game of the day was played by the 4-1 Thunderbolt Junior team, coached by Cliff Howell. Desoto took an early 6-0 lead in the game, but with four seconds left in the half, Sebring's CJ Harris recovered a fumble. Time had run out on the clock but the referee granted one play for the Thunderbolts. With no time to spare, Donte Carpenter threw a 30yard pass to DJ Taylor in the end zone for a touchdown, going into halftime with a score of 6-6. The second half began with the Bulldogs driving down the field to score taking a 12-6 lead, but that was all the Sebring defense was going to allow for the day.

s eries. This year he is racing a Yamaha 450. Since the racing season r uns from February to O ctober, Frazier has to find t ime for school work since t his competition takes him a ll over the country. To balance out his time f or school work, he usually w orks on homework while t he family is driving to w herever the next competit ion may be. Frazier said that "you h ave to have great e ndurance ... I race anyw here from two to two-anda -half hours through the w oods. It's usually a 5to 1 0-mile course racing t hrough trees, climbing m ountains, and having a g reat time." Frazier said the toughest t rack was Loretta Lynn's in H urricane Mills, TN. His toughest challenge at t his track was the wet and rainy conditions. Frazier has not broken any bones, although he has crashed. He has only walked away with a few scars and scratches. Frazier grew up around ATV's but then his dad, Chuck, bought the racing ATV's and since then he has been "hooked." He also said his mom, Karen, worries about him and his brother like all mom's do. Frazier said it was a lot of fun sharing track secrets with his little brother. It gives the brothers a common bond, even though most siblings are very competitive with each other.

They were, indeed, right with the Lady Hawks in the opening game of the night, keeping within striking distance with a Kayla Bailey block highlighting a threepoint run and bringing it to 16-15. But the Hawks answered with five in a row to create some distance. ABailey kill halted the run and the teams traded points from there, but the gap was just too much for a trade-off at this stage, resulting in the 25-18 loss. The second game was tight as well, early on, with a Kalee Schlabach kill keeping the Panthers right there, down 7-6. But Hillsborough soon took off, reeling off 11 straight to take control of the game on the way to a 25-10 win. But rather than getting down and packing it in, South Florida came out for the third game with a renewed energy and enthusiasm. ALeah Mitchell kill had the Panthers ahead 6-4 and after a Hawk run had flipped the margin, a Shelby Flint kill evened things up at 8-8. Afive-point run for the visitors followed, but South Florida again battled back, getting to within 17-15 in the later stages. But then the talons came out and the Hawks went for the kill, going on an 8-1 run to close out the 25-16 win. "We're playing better than we were at this time last year," setter Rikki Albritton said afterward. "They're very good and we had a hard time with them last year. It's encouraging to play this well against them." Which is the attitude the team is carrying through the early going. "We want to win and we're having fun," Crawford sai d. "It's always a work in progress, but I'm focusing o n encouraging the positives. "I feel good about o ur defense and our serve recei ve is good," she continue d. "Rikki is doing a fantast ic job and the hitters are adjus ting to her setting. (Liber o) Melissa (Tullo) is getting to everything. I was concern ed when Kaneisha (Hamilto n) left because she was so gre at for us in the back, b ut Melissa is a freak of natu re and has filled her sho es well." Albritton's setting result ed in 24 assists on the nigh t, while Tullo kept active in totaling 19 digs. Bailey, Mitchell and Fli nt paced the team with six ki lls each.

ARAContentWith children getting b ack to the books across the c ountry and moms re-organi zing extracurricular schedu les, maintaining a healthy l ifestyle is more important t han ever at school and in t he home. Even with busy b ack-to-school schedules, i t's important to eat and d rink healthfully. Incorporating healthy eati ng and drinking habits into t his year's routine can be e asy and rewarding. For i nstance, with a few simple s ubstitutions parents can t ransform a typical packed l unch into a delicious yet n utritional powerhouse. And w hen it's done properly, k ids won't miss a thing. A f ew tips: Swap white bread and t ortillas for whole wheat. Replace high-calorie s preads with lower-calorie v ersions, and/or mustard. Think about increasing f lavor and texture with h ealthful additions. L ayering veggies on a sandw ich really amps up its n utritional content. Consider baked or airp opped treats instead of f ried chips. Trail mix, especially o ne full of healthful nuts a nd dried fruits, is a great s nack that provides lasting e nergy. Packing a bottle of w ater like Nestle Pure Life i nstead of a sugary beverage i s a convenient way to help s ave 145 calories a day. Water keeps kids healthfully hydrated and it can also help maintain concentration and alertness, whether at school or on the playing field. Did you know that the average American guzzles three sugary drinks a day? "Much of eating and drinking healthfully starts with simple awareness," says Bob Greene, fitness trainer to Oprah. "Caloric intake from beverages is on the rise, as are the health risks associated with diets high in calories." According to a survey released earlier this year, most Americans realize the number of calories they are knocking back with every sugary drink is just as important as the calories in the food they eat. However, fewer than half of those surveyed rarely pay attention to the caloric content of the drinks they enjoy and serve to their families. "That's why I helped to create the Nestle Pure Life Pledge," says Greene. "We're encouraging consumers to get the whole family involved by taking one easy step: replace one sugared beverage a day with water for one year, to eliminate more than 50,000 calories from their diet." For more information, and to take the pledge, log on to www.nestlepurelife.us. When it comes to healthy living, making simple adjustments to what you and your family are already doing can have a big impact. DearPharmacist: I'm having trouble sleeping and I'm wondering if it has something to do with my new medications. I've begun taking sertraline (Zoloft) for depression at night and hydrocodone for pain which I take every morning. The problem is that I feel like a zombie at work but I stay up all night. Is this normal? B.D. New York City Answer: It's all about timing and your timing is backwards! There's a simple rule in pharmacy: Take energizing medications in the morning, and relaxing ones at night! The reasoning behind that is to take advantage of the side effect that typically occurs with a particular medication. For example, in your case, the sertraline (Zoloft) is wonderful at raising energy levels and increasing alertness. The reason you are up all night is because you are taking an energizing medication at bedtime. Unless you enjoy informercials or like to facebook in the wee hours, I suggest you change your timing. In fact, all the medications in this class of SSRI antidepressants should be taken in the morning or around lunchtime. Pain medications such as hydrocodone/acetaminophen (Lortab, Norco or Vicodin) are notorious for causing one to feel relaxed and sleepy and because you are taking it in the morning, you feel like a "zombie." I recommend you take this medication a halfhour before bedtime. It's okay to take pain meds with a little snack or some food to minimize any stomach discomfort should that be a problem for you. Prescribed analgesics in this class are known to slightly slow down respiration and heart rate, and sensitive people can feel dizzy too. Again, the time to take pain medications is at night so you can take advantage of the side effect that goes along with these medication and avoid daytime fatigue. If you are uncertain about when to take your particular medication, please ask your local pharmacist to weigh in. Here are some basic guidelines to follow: Sleeping medications: Take these 10 to 60 minutes before you want to go to sleep. This goes for over-thecounter sleep aids, as well as prescribed medications. Never combine these meds with alcohol. Thyroid hormones: Take it first thing in the morning, upon arising and o n empty stomach. Thyroid medications are intended to raise energy, speed up metabolic rate and burn fat durin g the day. Blood pressure meds: Generally speaking, take these at bedtime, just get ou t of bed very slowly in the morning because they can cause orthostatic hypotensio n (a sudden drop in blood pre ssure when arising). Nasal decongestants: Often found in cold medications to help unstuff your nose. These are energizing s o take them during the day. Sustained-release formulas cause less of a energy "jolt" but still provide long-acting relief. Diuretics: These "wate r pills" lower blood pressure by making you urinate more Take them in the morning so you are not racing to the potty all night.

Those w ho have struggled with their weight often a dmit their weight fluctuates regularly, illust rating the struggle that maintaining a h ealthy weight can present. While every person is different, there are w ays to keep weight off, and many of them a re relatively minor. What these methods all h ave in common is the commitment level t hey require. Making a long-term commitm ent to each of the following changes can n ot only help lose weight, but keep that w eight off as well. Closely monitor fat and sugar intake. R educe consumption of foods high in fat and s ugar, or substitute with reduced-calorie and r educed-fat foods and beverages. The fat in y our diet should be limited to 30 percent or l ess of total calories each day. Get daily exercise. Exercise comes in m any forms, and it's best to determine what t ype of physical activity best suits each indiv idual and each lifestyle. Initially, you s hould work your way up to regular aerobic e xercise, such as brisk walking, jogging or s wimming, since it is a key factor in achievi ng permanent weight loss and improving h ealth. For maximum benefits, most health e xperts recommend exercising 30 minutes or m ore on most, and preferably all, days of the w eek. Be aware of your eating habits. N egative eating habits can include o verindulging, eating when bored or looking t o food for comfort. Many times people don't e ven realize they are routinely treating food i n these ways. Keeping a food diary, in which you write down when you eat, what you're eating and why you're eating is a good means to discovering just what your eating habits are and determining if they are healthy or not. Remember the value of balance when planning a diet. Mom, Dad and no doubt school teachers extolled the virtues of a balanced diet, and for good reason. Don't forget the five good groups (milk, meat, fruit, vegetable, bread) when planning a diet. If you have a specialty diet, due to an existing condition (i.e., diabetes) or lifestyle (i.e., vegetarian), consult with a physician as to how to best balance your diet, as there will no doubt be certain foods that are off limits.

However, d espite the wisdom that c omes with getting older, we o ften overlook the less visib le signs of age, like everyd ay activities becoming more d ifficult, which can have a m ore significant impact our l ives than a few gray hairs. Muscle loss can occur as y oung as age 40, causing w eakness or lack of energy t hat may force people to give u p or cut back on activities t hey once enjoyed from g olfing to gardening to keepi ng up with their children or g randchildren. But the good n ews, according to muscle h ealth experts, is that muscle l oss can not only be prevente d but even reversed, allowi ng people to stay active and v ibrant. "Getting older is a fact of l ife, so we should take action n ow to protect our muscles so w e can stay healthy as we a ge," says Dr. Vonda Wright, a n orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine for adults over age 40. "Strong muscles help people continue doing the things they love. Taking steps today to protect and strengthen our muscles can keep us active and independent, leading to a greater quality of life down the road." Dr. Wright offers her expert tips on how to take charge of your muscle health: Take the muscle testTest yourself and see just how strong you are. There are many simple, at-home tests you can do to measure the strength of your muscles. For instance, do as many pushups as possible until exhaustion to test your upper body strength. For average 40somethings, men should be able to complete 21 to 28 pushups and women should complete 18 to 24 modified pushups. Feed your musclesRegular activity is only one ingredient in a recipe for better muscle health. Make sure you're eating a balanced diet that includes protein, fiber and brightly colored fruits and vegetables. And there's something new to help rebuild muscle strength: new Ensure Muscle Health, specially designed to help rebuild muscle and strength naturally lost over time. It has 13 grams of protein and Revigor (TM) (a source of HMB), a naturally occurring amino acid metabolite that comes from protein. Revigor can help protect muscle cells, preserve muscle tissue and promote muscle growth so you can keep doing the things you love. Get a move onEven if you're completely new to exercising, daily activity is important and there's no better time to get active than right now. Start out with the basics, like ta king daily walks around yo ur neighborhood. Once th at becomes a habit, switch u p your routine with other lig ht activities. Daily exercise c an also reduce the risks for di abetes, breast cancer, hea rt conditions and depression. Use it or lose itThe old adage is tru e. Muscles can deteriorate wi th time if you don't use the m regularly, leaving you feelin g weak. But there is goo d news: Studies show that mu scle atrophy from inactivity is reversible no matter yo ur age, so the more you use yo ur muscles, the stronger they 'll be. While the aging proce ss can't be stopped, muscle lo ss can be prevented or ev en reversed with exercise an d proper nutrition. Everyon e, from weekend walkers to after-work athletes, can ta ke simple steps now to build an d maintain strong, health y muscles and continue doin g the activities they enjoy f or years to come. More than skin deep: Preventing the unseen signs of aging By MATTHEWPERRONE APHealth WriterWASHINGTON F ederal health regulators h ave approved the first pill to t reat the underlying causes of m ultiple sclerosis, a debilitati ng nervous system disorder t hat has traditionally been t reated with injectable drugs. The Food and Drug A dministration approved S wiss drugmaker Novartis' t reatment Gilenya to reduce relapses i n patients with multiple scler osis, who experiences loss o f balance, muscle spasms a nd other movement probl ems. There is no cure for the d isease, but steroids can r educe the duration and s everity of symptoms in the s hort term, and seven treatm ents on the market have had s uccess in reducing recurr ence of symptoms. All involve daily or regular i njections, which doctors say discourages some patients from keeping up with their treatment. "Many people prefer to take a capsule because they don't like to stick needles into themselves," said Dr. Nick LaRocca, of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Since starting on Gilenya more than two years ago, Seth Morgan of Chevy Chase, Md., says he has been free of disease relapses. Morgan previously injected himself with a medication every other day. "People say you get used to the side effects the discomfort and burning around the injection site but the fact of the matter is I never did," said Morgan, who worked as a neurologist before being diagnosed with the disease. Wall Street analysts expect sales of Gilenya to top $1 billion. Novartis gains FDA approval for new MS drug The news is just a click away!www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN

Giving patients cholest erol-lowering statins before surg ery and other invasive procedures c an halve the risk of heart attacks, d eaths and other complications, t hey report in the Journal of the A merican College of Cardiology. "The magnitude of benefit we f ound in terms of reducing mortalit y, post-procedure myocardial i nfarctions and reduction in atrial f ibrillation after bypass surgery is r eally quite large," said first author D avid Winchester, M.D., a cardiolo gy fellow in the College of M edicine's department of medicine. If you look at some of the other i nterventions we use, such as using b eta blockers before surgery, you d on't get nearly the kind of benefit t hat we are seeing with using statins p rior to procedures. That is very s urprising." The results strongly support the r outine use of statin therapy before i nvasive procedures, experts say. Statins are known for their ability t o lower cholesterol. But a different m echanism is at play in reduction of p ostsurgery complications. A lthough researchers have not pinp ointed the specifics, they have c lues about how statins work to benefit patients after surgery. After invasive procedures such as coronary artery angioplasty, coronary bypass surgery or major vascular surgery, the risk of heart attack is raised thanks to a combination of factors. Just the act of inserting wires and catheters directly into major blood vessels can cause physical damage to those vessels or dislodge unstable plaques that then travel in the bloodstream and restrict blood flow to the very artery that cardiologists and surgeons are trying to mend. In addition, as blood vessels try to minimize the impact of the damage, various inflammation-causing hormones and bioactive compounds are released into the circulation. So statins may work to reduce the risk of cardiac events after surgery by stabilizing plaques and decreasing inflammation, the researchers speculate. Statins also appear to contribute to the overall health of the coronary artery. The researchers, led by Anthony A. Bavry, M.D., M.P.H., pulled together previously published data on more than 4,800 patients from 21 different randomized, controlled trials that investigated the use of statin therapy before invasive procedures. Called a meta-analysis, the pooling and re-analyzing of data from several individual studies allowed the researchers to study the effects of statin use on a much larger scale than would be feasible in a single study. Such a large study population enables researchers to draw stronger conclusions about the value and relative benefit of the therapy. They found that patients who took the therapy before surgery had a 43 percent lower risk of heart attack and 46 percent lower risk of atrial fibrillation. Postsurgery death rates were lower by 34 percent. Beneficial effects were seen when statins were administered as little as one day before surgery. "The analysis is really compelling it should be the final nail to convince people that we need to do this. What are we waiting for?" said Kim A. Eagle, M.D., the Albion Walter Hewlett professor of internal medicine and director of the University of Michigan Cardiovascular Center, who was not involved in the current study. "I'm hopeful this will convince caregivers that this is not an accident, but that it's a physiology that's understandable and we need to do this." Eagle, who wrote an editorial comment in the journal addressing the UF study, led the development of the American College of Cardiologists and American Heart Association guidelines regarding cardiac risk of noncardiac surgery, and the guidelines for coronary artery bypass surgery. Eagle said he would like to see statin therapy become part of standard care of every patient who will have invasive procedures performed. "We should be giving high doses of statins to all patients before cor onary bypass and certainly befo re angioplasty," he said. While the researchers do n ot anticipate that fellow physicia ns will resist adopting the new pra ctice, they acknowledged concer ns about potential side effects such as raising liver function test levels an d causing muscle breakdown. B ut such effects are infrequent an d minor when they do occur t he researchers said. "Overall, the drugs are safe, an d don't have much downside. Th ey are readily accessible and easy to take before a procedure ," Winchester said. "If it is built in to people's routine it should be rel atively easy to accomplish in the re al world." He already has incorporated t he therapy into his own practice. To encourage universal adoptio n of the measure, Eagle said, he would like to see it included in national surgical guidelines an d quality-of-care performance mea sures used by Centers for Medica re and Medicaid Services and oth er agencies. "It should become a reflex th at for everyone having these proc edures people stop and say, Ha ve they gotten their statins?'" Eag le said Got statins? UF cardiologists recommend new use for old drug If you look at some of the other interventions we use, such as using beta blockers before surgery, you don't get nearly the kind of benefit that we are seeing with using statins prior to procedures. That is very surprising.'DR. DAVIDWINCHESTER UFDepartment of Medicine

High schoolaged youth between the ages of 14 and 18 years old gather each school day morning at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Grand Prix Drive. Nine students have dedicated themselves to rising early to attend a seminary class that begins at 6:40 a.m. Local attorney and church member Lori Thompson also rises early to teach the class. This is her second year as a volunteer instructor who loves young people as evidenced by her volunteer work with Teen Court and Take Stock in Children in addition to teaching seminary. Understanding the importance of giving high schoolers the necessary tools to meet daily life in a world filled with turmoil, Thompson has seen the benefits the lessons provide for her as well. During the four years that each student attends, the curriculum rotates to include The Old Testament, The New Testament, The Book of Mormon and Church History. This year's focus is Church History. Throughout each year, the students also work on memorizing verses of Scripture. At the end of each year, they have received 25 Scriptures that are pertinent to the course of study and which, when learned, are frequently kept in their memories throughout life. The dedication of the youth who attend is evident in their attendance. Most attend more than 90 percent of the time. "Participation in the seminary program is entirely voluntary. Students'willingness to attend despite their extremely busy schedules is an impressive example of their understanding of life's priorities," Thompson said. Seminary is held each day school is in session. High school students of all denominations are welcome. For more information, contact Thompson at 382-7924.Day of Prayer is a huge successAVON PARK Approximately 600 persons gathered Sunday afternoon in the Avon Park Holiness Tabernacle in a sincere show of Christian unity at the Second Annual City-wide Day of Prayer. More than 30 congregations were represented with pulpit presence with many more in attendance. Music was provided by two groups as well as soloists and congregational singing. A special treat was Bolivian missionary Joe Kunkel playing several renditions on a saw blade. Participants led the congregation by praying aloud for common needs in all aspects of government, home and family, as well as global concerns. Petitions were also offered for world peace and unity. Ahighlight of the program was a special ceremony honoring pastors and ministry leaders for their dedication and hard work over the years. The Third Annual Avon Park City-wide Day of Prayer is set for Sept. 18, 2011. You've had another argum ent. It seems the arguments a re coming more frequently a nd you always end up being t he one to apologize. Why is i t always your fault? Why do y ou have to be the one to say, I'm sorry?" Why can't he u nderstand your feelings and w hat you're going through? W hy can't he apologize for a c hange? Does he think he's a lways right? When is it g oing to be your turn to be h appy? You may not like the a nswer. I'm going to apolog ize first and say I'm sorry t his is not going to be a p leasant truth: It isn't about y ou. Do you deserve to be h appy? From a human standp oint yes. From God's v iewpoint all we (including you) deserve is hell. We are all sinners and even Christians, even the Pope, only deserves hell. It is the wages for sin. If you are expecting your husband, your kids, your job, your friends, or anything else to make you happy, it isn't going to happen. No one can make you happy. You must choose happiness. Happiness comes from putting other people first. You will be happy when you first consider your husband's feelings and look for ways to make his life a pleasure. When you focus on yourself, things get out of control. They get out of focus and everyone around you gets out of sorts. The world we live in says, "Take care of number one. Put yourself first. If you don't demand what you want, you won't get it." The Bible says just the opposite: Philippians 2:3 says, "Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves." Since God knows everything, and the Bible is His instruction manual for life, it makes sense that He would be right and man wrong. Aleta Kay is a lay counselor.

By CHRISTYLEMIRE APMovie CriticWoody Allen is once again gleefully messing with his ridiculous characters'lives in "You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger," but there isn't much joy for anyone watching. Sure, there are some laughs to be had here and there at the sheer absurdity of it all. But mostly these people feel shallow, and it's hard to muster much enthusiasm for their foibles. They're just like us, Allen seems to be saying except they're less interesting. Not that it matters all that much. This is a very minor entry in the writer-director's prodigious canon, despite the major-league cast: Anthony Hopkins, Naomi Watts, Josh Brolin, Antonio Banderas. But it's a couple of supporting players who make the greatest impression: Freida Pinto and Lucy Punch, who represent opposite ends on the spectrum of female desirability. And desire is what "You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger" is all about. These people all want something or someone that's different or as they perceive it, better than what they have, whether it's a job, an apartment or a new love. Set in London like Allen's recent "Match Point," "Scoop" and "Cassandra's Dream," "You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger" similarly features the intertwined lives of the rich and the far less privileged who covet such wealth. And like "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" his best film in quite a while, which earned Penelope Cruz a supporting-actress Oscar this comedy has a narrator commenting on the characters'misadventures in stiff, almost mocking tones, quoting overused Shakespeare to illuminate his points. Hopkins stars as wealthy Alfie Shepridge, who decides one day he's tired of being married to his longtime wife, Helena (Gemma Jones), and sets off on a new life of workouts, nightclubs and much younger women. The one he ends up falling for, though, is a working-class call girl and wannabe actress named Charmaine (Punch), whose paid-for affections he mistakes for love. It's a broad character, but Punch provides easy humor with her gangly, tacky presence, and things are far livelier when she's around. Helena, meanwhile, heads off to a fake psychic (which, come to think of it, sounds redundant) who tells her what she wants to hear and takes her money. Helena then drops in after each session, unannounced, on her daughter, Sally (Watts), and Sally's American husband, Roy (Brolin), who are having marital problems of their own. With her passiveaggressive digs, Jones also provides some laughs, but these'll make you squirm, too, because they hit a bit close to home. Sally is an assistant at an art gallery, working for the sophisticated Greg Clemente (Banderas). But just as her career is taking off, she feels frustrated at home: She wants to have a baby, which Roy is reluctant to do. He's busy working on his second novel and trying to prove his successful first book was no fluke. Barely making any money, they're stuck living in a cramped flat. But the upside of that, for Roy at least, is the view: of the mysterious young woman who lives across the way, always wears red and plays the guitar beautifully. When he flirts his way into a lunch with her, Allen shows us up-close who this gorgeous creature is: Pinto, the star of "Slumdog Millionaire," and that first shot of her face will take your breath away. Of course, she's not the answer to Roy's troubles, either, just as Charmaine won't make Alfie's life better and the psychic won't lead Helena in the right direction. They can all dream.

(We are both deployed.) Since that day we have been together. "Ben" knows that I love him very much. He is scheduled to leave in two months. I am scheduled to leave two months after that. Ben lives in Georgia, and I come from Texas. We want to make it work when we leave here. I'll continue with my job, but because he's a contractor, Ben will be unemployed. I'm not worried about it because I know he's a go-getter. Abby, I have had difficulty when it comes to relationships. I am scared to let my guard down and let this good man provide a life for my children and me. I trusted my kids' father and he walked out of our lives. Ben is everything I have prayed for. He took the step of giving me a promise ring and told me he'd always be here for me. Please give me some good advice on how I should handle this. In Love in Afghanistan DearIn Love: Being under life-and-death pressure sharpens all of the senses. When people are in a strange or dangerous environment, their emotions can be heightened. This is not to say that people in a war zone can't fall legitimately in love it does happen. And it may have happened for you and Ben. However, the test of the strength of your relationship will come after you are both back home in the USA. You two have a ways to go before you step up to the altar. Your children need to meet Ben, get to know him and accept him. And he needs to prove to you that he can be not only a life partner to you, but a father to your children. So my heartfelt advice is to take this one step at a time. Don't rush into anything. If this was meant to be, it will happen in its own time. DearAbby: Aclose female friend moved near me with the intention of starting a serious relationship. We're in our 20s and finishing college. "Hallie" has just been diagnosed with stage 2 ovarian cancer. While her progn osis is fairly optimistic, her docto rs say she'll be unable to have children. Hallie loves kids. Knowing she can't have any h as broken her heart I love kids, too, but it's not an absolute requirement for me. I just started student teaching and can't be ther e for her during her chemo treatments and doctor vis its. Last night, after a few days of pushing me away Hallie offered me an "out ." She told me I should thin k carefully about everything before deciding to go through all of this with he r. I want to be with her in every way I can, but I can't help wondering how things may change for bo th of us if she beats this. Torn Apart in Michiga n DearTorn Apart: Hallie is an intelligent young woman. She under stands the strain a diagno sis like hers can place on a relationship, so do as she has asked. If she beats the cancer, and you stay together and decide to marry, you will be like many other childless couples deciding whether t o remain childless, adopt or hire a surrogate. You will also appreciate more fully than most what a gift eac h day you have together rea lly is. And you'll love eac h other until death do you part.

J-Lo, Tyler to be new Idol' judges Associated PressNEWYORK Shania Twain is ready to talk about her recent divorce and she'll do it in her autobiography. Of course, Twain will discuss much more than her recent split with music producer Robert "Mutt" Lange. The country superstar announced Wednesday that her book will talk about her difficult childhood, including the death of her mother. She'll also chart her rise to become one of the top-sellers in music. Twain says recent struggles created a "sudden urgency to document my life before I ran out of time." The Grammy winner shot to fame in the 1990s with hits like "Man! I Feel Like a Woman!" She had spent the past few years out of the spotlight. She's due to have her own show on Oprah Winfrey's new OWN network. Twain's book which is untitled for now will be published by Atria Books in the spring.

Painted switch plates blend into the wall, a good thing because you don't want to draw too much attention to switch plates because they're not a pretty focal point. Standard beige or white plastic switch plates can make a room look unfinished because they seem to jump right out of the wall especially in a room painted in vivid or dark colors. Those types of switch plates also show dirt and fingerprints.

B YSTACYDOWNS M cClatchy Newspapers h e tiniest home improvement c an make a huge difference. E ven replacing a dumb old d oorknob. "Adoorknob is a preview of w hat's to come inside the h ouse," says Susan Fehlig, d esign consultant and owner of T urn Key Interiors in Leawood, K an. "If it's in rough shape or if i t's out-of-date, the rest of the h ome might be, too. When a R ealtor is fumbling around to o pen the front door, potential b uyers already are making up t heir minds. And the same goes f or guests." The good news is that a d oorknob is so simple to r eplace that you needn't possess t he skill set of a do-it-yourself w eekend warrior. And it's an i nexpensive project that certainl y doesn't involve taking out a l oan. This type of upgrade is c heap and easy. Make "dump t he frump" your rallying cry. Think about updating the u glies. You know, that bad b rassy fireplace screen or those b eat-up kitchen cabinet pulls. A nd, of course, that unattractive f ront doorknob. "It doesn't matter how big or s mall a project is, but you feel e mpowered," says Krista W illiamson, owner of K 2Workshops in Overland P ark, Kan., a home-improvem ent business that specializes i n teaching homeowners how to f ix electrical and plumbing p roblems. "It sounds clichŽ, b ut you feel proud because y ou're taking charge. I love it w hen my family tours visitors a round the house and points out t hings I've done." These uncomplicated u pgrades that don't require m uch more than a flathead screwdriver can be major mood boosters. One Friday, I came home from work and saw my husband had installed a new brushed-nickel doorknob. I was ecstatic. "Goldie," my nickname for the tired but brassy doorknob, had finally bitten the dust. She had been the first part of my house I had resolved to get rid of when we had moved in seven years ago. But bigger projects had always grabbed our attention, and I had learned to live with her, as many homeowners do with their uglies. However, Goldie had always bugged me. She wasn't gold in the sense of Donald Trump bling or in the up-and-coming sophisticated brushed gold hardware finish. Goldie was shiny in parts, worn out in others and definitely clashed with the fresh apple-green paint inside the house. In retrospect, it makes sense that Goldie and the other uglies were bothersome, because I touched them and looked at them every day. As a home stager and design consultant, Fehlig looks past the "house blindness" many of us develop and sees a home environment with a fresh eye. Paint is her top suggestion. She tells homeowners to paint switch plates and air-return vents the colors of the wall. She freshens up brass lamp bases (the color of Goldie) with paint made specifically for metal. "It saves money to try to save the hardware if you can," Fehlig says. "I use oil-rubbed bronze or brushed nickel colors of paint, depending on the house." Fehlig suggests updating the uglies in the kitchen and bathrooms first since they're the rooms that sell a home.The little things make a big d ifference, whether you're selling your home or staying put PROJECT DETAILSCost: Anew doorknob starts at about $25. The locksmith's work costs between $5 and $10.Tools required: Ascrewdriver.Time: 15 minutes or so to install.
