AP city manager search continues By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING With the winter guest season fast approaching, it is time to get out the calendar and red pen, especially as October promises to kick things off with all kinds of special events. The Historic Circle will certainly be busy. The very first day of the month alone is crammed with events, starting with the seventh annual Run to the Heartland a monster motorcycle festival centered downtown that is expected to draw 20,000 people to Sebring and the 12 Hours of Barbecue both taking place. At noon that Friday the Sebring Firemen's annual tractor parade will begin at the intersection of South Ridgewood Drive and Oak Avenue. In addition to antique tractors and classic cars, arrangements are being made to include a motorcycle drill team in honor of the Run for the Heartland. The tractor parade will roll up to the Circle, drive around it against the normal flow of traffic, turn onto South Commerce Avenue and travel down to McLain Lane and Firemen's Field where the parade ends and the Sebring 12 Hours of Barbecue begins. Known locally as the "Pig Fest," the 12 Hours of Barbecue is a taste treat deluxe, with choices for sale from pork ribs to chicken wings. Serious cooks, using carefully guarded secret recipes, are out to tickle taste buds as they compete for best barbecue bragging rights. Bring extra napkins. Moving down to the Sebring Civic Center, Thursday, Oct. 7, provides an opportunity to dress up and support a good cause when the 28th annual 4H fundraiser takes place starting at 6 p.m. Afull buffet with all the trimmings, good company and both silent and live auctions should make the evening memorable said Tanya Cannady, one of the organizers. "This one event raises the money we need for our yearly budget," Cannady said. Tickets are $75 a person. They will be available at the door, but reservations are preferred for planning purposes.

Special to the News-SunAVON PARK What was life like in Central Florida during the middle decades of the last century? The perspective often depends on whether the answer comes from a person who is black or white. Their answers also reveal how a community can change and grow. These insights surfaced during an oral history project conducted by the Historical Society of Avon Park and South Florida Community College (SFCC). Decades of Change: Black and White Residents of Avon Park Remember the Mid-20th Century is the result of interviewing of four white and four black citizens of Avon Park about the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s. The public can learn about the project at a panel discussion from 1-2:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 30 at the SFCC University Center, SFCC program explains impact on social changes on small town See SFCC, page 5A See MONTH, page 4A Council votes to stop negotiations with first choice See SEBRING, page 4A See AP, page 4A

Duffers supporting APHSfootball POLICEBLOTTER Special to the News-SunAVON PARK The Heartland Rural Health Network Inc., in collaboration with Drug Free Highlands, received a federal Drug Free Communities Support Program grant from the Substance Abuse & Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA). This is a five-year grant totaling $625,000. Almost 170 new grantees were selected from 521 applicants across the nation through a competitive, peer-reviewed process. To qualify for this grant recipients had to meet several requirements including: a 1:1 match; at least a sixmonth history of working together on youth substance use reduction initiatives; representation from the 12 sectors of the community; development of a long term plan to reduce youth substance use; and participation in the National Evaluation of the DFC program. The Drug Free Communities Support Program, created by the Drug Free Communities Act of 1997, is the nation's leading effort to mobilize communities to prevent youth drug use. Directed by the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), in partnership with SAMHSA, the DFC program provides grants to local established drug-free community coalitions to strengthen collaboration among community partners and to prevent and reduce youth substance use. Based on the fundamental concept that local problems need local solutions the DFC grant funded coalitions engage multiple sectors of the community and utilize a variety of strategies to address local drug problems. The Drug Free Highlands coalition is comprised of community leaders, parents, youth, teachers, religious and fraternal organizations, health care and business professionals, law enforcement, and the medi a. According to G il Kerlikowske, director of ONDCP, data reflects th at communities receiving DF C funding have seen signi ficant reductions in past 3 0day use of alcohol, tobacc o, and marijuana among mi ddle and high school st udents. "We are truly excit ed about the opportunity to partner with Drug Fr ee Highlands to reduce su bstance use among o ur youth," said Rud y Reinhardt, Heartland Rur al Health Network's executi ve director. Drug Fr ee Highlands'mission is to organize, inform, educat e, and unite the community in its efforts to reduce su bstance abuse. Jacqueline Rawling s, Drug Free Highlands cha ir, said, "The Coalition is thrilled with the news of th is grant award. We will no w have an opportunity to mo ve forward with our Actio n Plan and provide more com munity awareness and su pport to ensure a drug fr ee Highlands." The next Drug Fr ee Highlands coalition meetin g is at 9 a.m. Wednesday in the Florida Hospit al Medical Center conferen ce room.

Many of you have heard the a ncient Chinese curse "May y ou live in interesting times." As anyone who follows print j ournalism knows, newspapers a re currently living through i nteresting times. Indeed, if the news business w as any more interesting it w ould be fascinating which i s another way of saying, Whoa Nellie, hold on for the r ide." But as interesting as the b usiness is, as changing in its t echnology and dynamic, its r easons for being, its fundam ental rules and standards r emain the same at least a mong the many publications t hat take their readers and miss ion seriously. Here at the News-Sun we t ake pride in what we do. We feel one of our primary r esponsibilities, as a communit y newspaper, is to present vali dated facts and context to our r eaders. We also believe part of our m ission is to encourage citizen e ngagement and debate. Our goal is to be a steady, r eliable resource; providing s ound information and the food f or thought to promote comm unity discussions. At the same time we recognize the sharp division between opinion and fact. Like probably all editorial boards, ours is made up of people who have an intense interest in the world and the people on it. And like probably all the other editors and writers who make up editorial boards, we have our personal opinions sometimes passionately held. Our duty is to carefully edit what we think, out of what we write. Except for the op-ed (opinion and editorial) section. This is where the editorial board is expected to express its collective mind as it tries to make sense of these interesting, yet unsettling times whether we're bringing attention to an issue, or worthy people to our readers'attention; whether we're congratulating a job well done, or sounding a warning; waxing philosophical, or venting with the occasional rant. Having a small staff, our editorial board is made up of four people, two writers, an editor and the publisher. Editorial ideas typically emerge from newsroom conversations regarding current events or issues. Everyone is encouraged to get in on the discussions. However the subject emerges, a writer is either assigned or volunteers to write the editorial. The finished product is read by the editor and publisher. It is the publisher who has the final say. Our policy is to approach issues fairly, using civil debate. We try to write without exclamation marks. And we try to focus on local issues, or on how larger issues affect us. Our goal, beyond being worth the 50 cents a copy week days and 75 cents on Sunday, is to get you, the reader, involved. We welcome letters to the editor, especially those that are concise, as well as comments on our Web site. Highlands County is a physically beautiful place, filled with wonderful, creative people who have built lasting institutions like the Career Academy and the Children's Advocacy Center. Like every community, however, we also have among us people who refuse to admit to mistakes, individuals who are incompetent or uncaring, and our own share of the down right greedy. In that way, nothing has really changed. Which is why we continue to do our oh-so-interesting job to the best of our ability hoping we are both a reflection of what's best about our community, and a watch dog guarding it. Please, keep in touch. www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, September 10, 2010Page 3A EDITORIAL& OPINION TODAY'SEDITORIALTODAY'SLETTERS 2227 U.S. 27 South Sebring, FL 33870 863-385-6155 NEWSROOMROMONA WASHINGTONPublisher/Executive Editor Ext.

Having plunged the nation into a deep financial crisis with his wild and unrestrained spending of money we do not have on things the nation does not need President Obama is now proposing to spend even more, claiming that this time it will work. On Monday, he called on his pet Democratic-controlled Congress to turn on the money spigot once more, insisting that this time it will stimulate an economy in the doldrums and create jobs in a time of rising unemployment. According to The New York Times, he asked Congress to appropriate vast sums of borrowed money to upgrade the nation's roads, railroads and airport runways as part of a multi-billion dollar, six-year scheme part of a plan that would cost tens of billions of dollars and create a government-run bank to finance allegedly innovative transportation projects. It appears that the president, despite all the evidence to the contrary, is convinced that the best way of solving our economic woes is to pass the cost onto future generations yet unborn, and by supporting abortion of unborn humans he sharply limits the number of new humans to be burdened with paying for all of his wanton spending. To make matters worse, he wants to heavily tax the very taxpayers who create jobs by investing the money he wants to wants to confiscate through taxes. If that doesn't make any sense to you, you are one of the growing number of Americans who are beginning to believe that the president is seeking to impose a socialist system upon this nation. Think about it. The best way to destroy an economic system is to destroy the economy. That will enable you to replace the destroyed system with one that you favor. And if everything you do vis-ˆ-vis the economy seems right out of Karl Marx's playbook, then the system you want to impose is a Marxist one. Among his many approaches to solving our economic problems was the creation of a deficit commission that will study our economic problems and, after 10 months of diag nosing the problem come up with a solution. Does Mr. Obam a really believe that we need a panel o f wise men to tell us what anybody with an ounce of sense understands: that when you keep spending money you don't have, thereby incurring unmentionably huge amounts of debt on which the annual interest alone equals the entire gross national product, you are n ot solving a problem, you are creating an even more serious one. Just what steps is this commission expected to rec ommend? Well how about the solution all big government advocates are bound t o recommend: raise taxes. As the Times asked, why shou ld the taxpayers pay for the mistakes the government keeps making? That's a dandy idea. Confiscate a large part of th e income of the so-called rich you know, the folks who keep businesses going by investing in them, thereby limiting their ability to put money into the economy an d making it possible for the firms in which they invest t o grow and create new jobs. Don't expect this Congress to do anything th at will really help the economy; for example, extending the Bush tax cuts. After all, that initially limits the amount of money the government can confiscate from the people whose investments keep the economy growing. Uncle Sam needs that money to pay for all those government programs that ladle out money to the people. That's never called wh at it is: buying people's votes by giving them money take n from their fellow American s. But worry not. Barack Obama's new commission will figure out a way to square the circle by recommending steps the pols would never dare take. And won't.

Just spend more money you don't have Making Sense Michael Reagan Definition of justice is turned upside down E ditor: The Department of Justice is presentl y investigating Arizona's Sheriff A rpaio relative to his enforcement of o ur immigration laws, while the D epartment of Justice chooses not to i nvestigate the violations of our Federal i mmigration laws by the Administration a nd Congress regarding our open bord ers and the existence of so-called S anctuary cities. The Department of J ustice, by opting not to enforce our p resent immigration laws, results in d eclaring illegal actions to have the stat us of legal actions while it declares t hat Sheriff Arpaio's enforcement of o ur immigration laws to be illegal. T herefore, the Department of Justice f unctions on the principle that illegal is l egal and that legal is illegal. How is t his termed to be justice when the defin ition of justice is turned upside down? As the Department of Justice is i nvestigating Sheriff Arpaio, should t here not be an investigation by an i ndependent counsel of this departm ent's enforcement of justice, which s eems to contradict the very definition o f justice and the rule of law? It a ppears that the Department of Justice's j ustice is "not blind," as justice is comm only defined, but is rather based on p olitical and /or governmental press ures where justice becomes a tool of t hose in office. Dear Reader: Is it not your duty to d emand the Department of Justice to d ispense justice as dictated by our laws a nd not be a slave to any political g roup or administration? Your silence o n this issue will be taken as giving a ssent if you do not voice your outrage a t a seemingly corrupt Department of J ustice. Our country is on the brink of d isaster as those in power violate our l aws, our Constitution and the rule of l aw. What will it take to wake you up a nd be involved in safeguarding the f uture of our country, our families and o ur freedoms? Robert J. Zielinski, Ph.D. Lake Placid A ntifreeze is dangerous to dogs E ditor: Members of the Community: I'm w riting this letter as a cartharsis of s orts for my dear friends as well as a m emorial to their beloved friend and p et Dixie. Dixie was a loving 6-yearo ld golden retriever living with her f amily on Lakeview Drive. Many will a ttest to seeing her daily, making her b iscuit rounds to nearby neighbors as w ell as stopping in for just a "pat on t he head". No longer will the neighborhood b enefit from her sunny disposition as D ixie died Monday, Aug. 30, much to the extreme grief of her loving family. Dixie died of antifreeze poisoning. While there are unanswered questions relative to her death, there are suppositions that have led to numerous discussions with the Sebring Police Department. Many may not realize the enormity of grief associated with a death of this nature. Just Friday before her death, she was playing catch with her family, robust, loving, and in seemingly good health. Just days later, she was gone. We've all heard the horror stories of animals dying of antifreeze poisoning due to it being left both unattended as well as the sweet nature of its taste. The purpose of this letter is twofold: to remember a friend as well as drive home the danger of this chemical if used improperly or left unattended. My dear friends have a memorial to their pet in their front yard a collage of family pictures. Maybe you'll notice it upon driving by and maybe it will serve as a reminder to take care. To many, a family pet is just that family. And to Ansley yes ... Dixie's in heaven with Gabby. Belinda Decker SebringAvon Park's Good Samaritan helps in PalatkaEditor: I had an opportunity to meet a member of your community two weeks ago under very unusual circumstances. My 50-year-old husband suffered a very sudden cardiac arrest as we were driving along Hwy 20 in our hometown, Palatka. I managed to call 911, stop the car, pull him from the car and attempt compressions. Damon Jones (Avon Park) was a passerby who was willing to stop and help me. It was obvious that he knew the appropriate way to administer CPR and I find it difficult to find adequate words to describe the relief I felt when he took over until EMS arrived. With Mr. Jones'help, an excellent EMS team and the medical professionals at our local emergency department, my husband miraculously survived. I just wanted to share Damon Jones' heroic role on that day and to express the gratitude I feel for his willingness to stop and help me during one of the most frightening moments of my life.

Continued from page 2A Month of October to be busy POLICEBLOTTER But the second choice for the city manager, Gregory Wood, has already accepted another position, according to acting City Manager Maria Sutherland. "I am shocked. At the very worst I expected a rejection of the draft or even a counter-proposal," Coleman wrote via e-mail on Tuesday. But other council members agreed with Schuler. "This shows me that he does not want to work here," said Deputy Mayor Brenda Gray. "What he is asking for in this contract is ridiculous to me." The dissenting voter for the motion to stop negotiations was Councilman Al Joe Hinson, who stated that he felt the council should at least let Coleman know that the council was not happy with his counter-proposal. "I cannot go along with dumping a guy and moving on. This is his counter, and we should at least give him an opportunity to respond," Hinson said. Coleman responded to the council's first contract with several changes $75,000 in base pay as well as moving expenses, extra sick and vacation days, and an extra $10,000 if asked to serve as airport manager in addition to his city manager duties. Coleman also asked the council to pay for 30 days of vacation per year, 30 days credit plus one day per month sick leave, retirement amounting to 13.12 percent of his gross pay each year, as well as real estate agent fees and closing costs directly related to the sale of his current house plus incidental costs associated with buying or building a primary residence in Avon Park including primary real estate fees and tit le insurance. "It shows by this contract that M r. Coleman does not get it," Schul er said. "This city cannot afford such a major financial demand like he is making." All told, with all the perks an d benefits, Coleman would have rea lized $141,962 in budgeted costs to the city, plus his moving and housin g requests, according to a report han ded out by Avon Park's Financi al Director Renee Green during t he meeting. For comparison, ex-city manag er C.B. Shirey was only costing the ci ty $99,204 with benefits, according to the report.

Associated PressWASHINGTON The number of people signing up for unemployment benefits dropped to the lowest level in two months, an encouraging sign that companies aren't resorting to deeper layoffs even as the economy has lost momentum. The Labor Department reported Thursday that new claims for unemployment aid plunged last week by a seasonally adjusted 27,000 to 451,000. Economists had predicted a much smaller decline of just 2,000. In a second hopeful sign, the government said the trade deficit narrowed significantly in July as exports climbed to the highest level in nearly two years. The narrower gap reflected big gains in exports of U.S.-made airplanes and other manufactured goods. Imports declined. Together, the two reports eased fears that the economy might slide back into recession. "At the moment, we can rule out a double-dip for the economy," said Chris Rupkey, chief economist at Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi. "The economy is not out of the woods with today's data, but things look better than they have in several week, and there is no danger of a new downturn in activity." On Wall Street, the news lifted stocks. The Dow Jones industrial average was up around 60 points early. Concerns about a possib le new recession had aris en after a batch of downbe at reports in August. For exam ple, new applications for jo bless benefits shot past t he half-million mark in mi dAugust, the highest lev el since November. Since that spike, thoug h, they have drifted lower. Ne w filings for benefits are no w at their lowest level sin ce July 10. H ighlands Campus. A dmission is free. The prog ram coincides with an exhib ition at the SFCC Museum o f Florida Art and Culture ( MOFAC). Panelists will include Avon P ark entrepreneurs, educat ors, religious leaders, and a gricultural workers, who r ecorded their memories for t he project. The moderator w ill be Dr. James M. D enham, professor of history a nd director of The Lawton M Chiles Jr. Center for F lorida History at Florida S outhern College in L akeland. One topic raised during the i nterviews was coping with p overty: As one black partici pant said, "I had one pair of s hoes. The soles were worn o ut, but I kept the tops of t hem shined so people would t hink I had good shoes on." Awhite participant r ecalled the impact of the A von Park bombing range on t he community's morale duri ng World War II. "It seemed l ike it just created an almost o verwhelming patriotic spiri t. Everybody wanted to join i n the war effort." White residents recalled a f lourishing business commun ity in downtown Avon Park. O ne participant remarked, We had a post office, butche r shop, three drug stores, a r estaurant, two clothing s tores, a bank, a meat market, a nd A&P[grocery store], and s everal doctor's offices." At t he same time, black entrep reneurs kept businesses t hriving in the black commun ity. Said one black resident, We had taxicabs, beautic ians, barbers, dry cleaners, l aundry, grocery store, drug s tore, clothing store, our own t heater, and our own notary." Like the rest of the nation, A von Park was forever c hanged by the civil rights m ovement. One white partici pant remembered the segreg ationist policies of a departm ent store she worked in duri ng that era. "One of the t hings that really bothered m e when I was working at t he department store was, I c ould not let [our black cust omers] into a regular dressi ng room. I had to take them b ack to the employee bathr oom." Ablack participant also r emembered being treated l ike a second-class citizen in l ocal stores. "We'd go shopp ing, and if we were in line a nd if a white person came u p, they'd wait on them and p ush us back." The project also revealed s ome attempts at understandi ng: "The whites here were k ind of cooperative," one b lack resident said. "They t ried to keep things down, keep things peaceful." "You just think of black people going on a trip and then not being able to go into a place and dine, or not being able to stop and go to the restroom," one white resident said, sympathetically. "It's very different now," one black resident remarked. "We get along. It is nothing like it used to be." Local residents taking part in the project were Robert Barben, Bishop Thomas Brown, Wilma Conner, Roberta Flowers, Jean Jordan, David Lanier, Beatrice Peterson, and Robert Wilson Jr. Project staff included Larry Levey, president of the historical society, Dr. Charlotte Pressler, professor, English/philosophy, SFCC; and Maxine Floyd, retired educator.

SFCC program to explore social change produce approximately $423,000 in additional revenue. Option 3 would not involve water rates. The in city sewer base charge would increase to $2.50, bringing in an estimated $157,000 in additional revenue. Before discussion even began, council member Scott Stanley expressed his opposition to raising rates without first trying to cut more money out of the overall budget. "We're taking the easy way out," Stanley said. "That's what every government does. Maybe we should look at this (from a different perspective). How can we decrease expenses? We need to be looking at the whole picture." He gave as an example that the cost of city pension plans had to be addressed. Council member John Griffin, on the other hand, said, "You've got to raise rates. We have to run a business that's successful. The city departments have cut (their budgets as much as they can). We need to raise rates in order to cover expenses. The last sewer increase was in 2006. There has only been a 3 percent raise in sewer rates over the last 10 years." Council member Margie Rhoades agreed that the sewer fund was not paying for itself. She was opposed to raising water rates, however, especially in the difficult economic climate. Council member Bud Whitlock agreed with her regarding raising water rates, but pointed out that expenses for water treatment have risen and the city had to take that rise into account. "I can't think of anything that has stayed the same or gone down (in cost) except for real estate," he said. "The sewer has to pay f or itself." Griffin added that "we a re the lowest in the county in sewer rates. Even with t he raise, we'll still be the low est." Griffin moved to sele ct option 2 but no one wou ld second the motion. Option 1 was brought to a vote but failed by a vote of 3-2 Griffin and Whitlo ck voting in favor. When Rhoades moved to select option 3, and it appeared that it too wou ld not receive a second, cou ncil president John Cla rk passed the gavel to Stanl ey and seconded the motio n himself. Option 3 was then pass ed unanimously. This means the month ly in city sewer charge f or 10,000 gallons of wat er usage will be $22.1 5, excluding taxes. The out-o fcity charge will be 25 pe rcent higher.

SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Friday, September 10, 2010 Page 3BHistory This series stretches all the way back to 1927,though it hasn't been continual with just 42 meetings between the schools.Avon Park leads the series 28-14,earning another win last year with a 27-14 win at Joe Franza Stadium. Game Notes Turnovers continue to plague the Red Devils,with five more contributing to last week's loss. Okeechobee's offense is lead by quarterback Jack Radebaugh and running back Deforest Shanks. Last W eek Avon Park: Fell to perennial power, Frostproof,33-6. Okeechobee: Topped Berean Christian 34-7 Recor ds Avon Park 0-1; Okeechobee 1-0 Avon Park at OkeechobeeHistory Celebration hopes the sixth time is the charm as Lake Placid has dominated this still-young rivalry.With last year's 31-0 win over the Storm,the Green Dragons stand at a perfect 5-0 over the seven year-old program. Game Notes Lake Placid's defense will look to tighten things up after giving up 104 points to Hardee and Sebring. The Dragons offense has moved the ball well at times,but has yet to get on track consistently. Last W eek Lake Placid: Took one on the chin at Sebring in a 55-6 loss. Celebration: Lost to Mountain Vista of Colorado 37-19. Recor ds Lake Placid 0-1; Celebration 0-1 Lake Placid vs. CelebrationHistory Another in the line of long-standing rivalries with the Blue Streaks, Sebring and Hardee have been squaring off since 1926,with most success going the Wildcats way.They lead the series 35-9-1 and won last season 28-0. Game Notes The teams could well be evenly matched this time around,with both Sebring and Hardee having topped Lake Placid by similar scores. Hardee will be looking to rebound after losing to Ft.Meade last week. Last W eek Sebring: Cruised past Lake Placid, 55-6. Hardee: Took a shutout loss at Ft Meade,27-0. Recor ds Sebring 1-0; Hardee 0-1 Sebring at Hardee All games have 7:30 p.m. kickoffs unless otherwise noted News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE A nna West and the Lady Blue Streaks took care of Liberty in three straight Tuesday night. News-Sun photo by ED BALDRIDG E Zakia Hart split these two Tenoroc defenders with this smash, but the Lady Titans would prevail in the end, winning Tuesday nights contest in five games. News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Samantha Phypers defends the net with this block Tuesday as Lake Placid topped visiting Ft. Meade. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING "I'll take an u gly win over a pretty l oss," Sebring head coach V enessa Sinness said T uesday night. "This was a n ugly win." Facing a struggling L iberty Charger squad after a n easy three-game s weep of Lake Wales f ive days earlier, one c ould expect things t o be uglied up a bit. Perhaps overlooki ng the Lady C hargers, the Blue S treaks were caught n apping a bit in an a ll-too-close 25-19 openi ng-game win. Things got back on c ourse over the final two c ontests, both 25-11 scores t hat were more in line with w hat was expected. "You can see it in the s tats," Sinness said. Stephanie (Struck), Anna ( West) and Brittany ( Whittington) each had four k ills to lead us. Even in a t hree-game sweep, that's not very many. Sam (DiGiacomo) lead us with just three digs and Sydney (Connelly) had three blocks. That just shows how sloppy the games were." But a win is a win, as Sinness had noted, and the team saw some sharp serving from Kaley Walter and Caitlin Portis as the duo totaled 29 serves with no service errors. Though things will need to tighten up overall quickly as the calendar gets busy. Cross-county rival Avon Park was in town Thursday, having already upset Lake Placid and eager for a county sweep, before Sebring heads to the Bartow Tournament over the weekend. The team then jumps into the meat of their district schedule next week, hosting Haines City Tuesday and traveling to Osceola Thursday. Lady Streaks will take it Sebring3Liberty0 Special to the News-SunSEBRING The Sebring Blue Streaks played at home this weekend at the Highlands County Sport Complex against the Manatee Bulls. Games started off at 9 a.m. with the Flag game, ages 5-6, coached by Chris King and Blue Streak fans were rewarded with a 13-12 win. The second game of the day was played by the Mitey-Mites, ages 7-8, coached by Carlos Cardoso. The Blue Streaks were tied at end of the fourth quarter, rolling them into overtime. The home team then earned one point by penetration rule, putting them in front by one point and winning the game on the final play 7-6 Game three on the d ay was played by the Senior s, ages 13-15, coached b y Bronson Smith where t he Blue Streaks played a clos e, competitive game b ut ended up with the Bul ls walking away with the w in with a final score of 7-6. The Pee Wee divisio n, ages 9-10, coached b y David Jones played t he fourth game of the da y, which ended in a bitte rsweet loss to the Bulls by a final score of 13-0. The Final game of t he day was played by t he Junior division, ages 11-1 2 years, coached by Bo b Duncan.

Tuesday would be t he curiosity as to how t he five-time defendi ng district champs w ould respond to the e arly blemish on their d istrict record. It wasn't a mark of p erfection, but the Lady G reen Dragons definitely t urned things around with a t hree-game sweep of the Ft. M eade Lady Miners. "We were definitely a different group than the Avon Park game," head coach Linette Wells said. "This was our first sweep of the season." Ft. Meade, though, kept things close in each contest, showing a scrappiness similar to the Red Devils that gave Lake Placid trouble five days earlier. But each time the Dragons stayed resilient, patient and fought through for the win. After a 25-22 first-game Lady Dragons bounce back Lake Placid3Ft.

The Devils had started the season 2-0 and captured a big win over District 9-3Arival Lake Placid five days earlier, but according to head coach Stephanie Devlin, the team did not play up to their potential against Tenoroc. "That was a different team than what was out there last week," Devlin said. "I don't know if it was the pressure or the long weekend over Labor Day, but we did not play like we could have. We missed assignments, and our serves were terrible." The Lady Devils struggled to both return and set their own service all night, but strong play at the line from Ashley Chacon allowed the Titans outlast Devils See AP, p a g e 3B

The Sebring Thunderbolts were on the road this week in Bartow to play the Yellow Jackets. Games started at 9 a.m. beginning with the Flag game, coached by Kirby Whitehouse. The Thunderbolts were defeated by the Yellow Jackets in this initial contest with a final score of 12-0. The second game was played by the Mitey-Mites, coached by Chris Hawthorne, who played a close defensive game that ended in a heart-breaking loss of 7-0. The third game was played by the Pee Wee division, coached by Tim Hooks. Astrong defense led by Austin Oppold and Rodrigo Nolan held Bartow for a shut out. The offense had a great game with TJ Williams running in a touchdown to start off the Thunderbolts day. Thurlow Wilkins also scored twice against Bartow, and Kasey Hawthorne scored a 50-yard touchdown and kicked four extra points for the day to help seal the Sebring Thunderbolts win of 32-0 The Final game of the day was played by the Junior division, coached by Cliff Howell, which was a great defensive game. Sebring scored on the opening drive of the game with CJ Harris running the ball to the two yard line and Donte Carpenter running the ball in for the touchdown. The Thunderbolts stayed on top with a 7-0 lead the entire game with DJ Taylor making an awesome interception and Sebring having two additional touchdowns called back.

Continued from 1B SYF Pep Rally on tap tonight, games set for weekend w in, Lake Placid went 25-20 i n the second game and 25-22 i n the clincher. "I'm very happy with the w ay the girls played, they did g reat," Wells said. "We still h ave room for improvement on defense, but overall they came together and played as a team. Even though the scores were close, they did play very well." Now 2-1 in District 9-3A action, Lake Placid is currently tied for second with Avon Park behind undefeated McKeel Academy (2-0, 5-0). The Dragons were on the road, looking to add another district win at Mulberry. See Sunday's News-Sun for a recap of the action. Continued from 1B LP 2-1 in district play d on't have too many words f or each other. We're just tryi ng to come out and get a win f or our team." Comparisons of the two q uarterbacks are inevitable t his week, considering t hey've been getting made f or years anyway. The 6-foot-6, 235-pound P ryor is two inches taller and 4 0 pounds heavier, yet t here's plenty of statistical s imilarities. Both have played 27 g ames. Pryor has combined t o run and pass for 5,079 y ards and 46 touchdowns, w hile Harris more of a t hrower, not so much of a r unner has 4,636 yards a nd 42 touchdowns. They share this in comm on, too: Both are ardent foll owers of LeBron James, the l ongtime Buckeyes fan and n ew Miami Heat star. "I told him I owe him a s how," said Pryor, who's urgi ng Ohio State fans not to boo J ames who scorned C leveland to join Miami this s ummer if he shows up on S aturday and calls the twot ime NBAMVPhis mentor. "Next time he comes, I t old him I have to give him a s how, because we lost the last t ime he came to Penn State, 1 3-6." Given that, maybe having J ames there would be good l uck for Miami, even though h e predicts an Ohio State w in. "Hopefully he'll show up," H arris said, undeterred by J ames'prediction. "That's on h im. That's LeBron James. I 'm not going to be mad at h im." Even if James is there, m ost eyes will be on the q uarterbacks. And that speaks volumes about how vital they will be on Saturday. Both came to their schools amid much fanfare, and both have had trouble always meeting expectations. Harris threw 17 interceptions last season, the secondmost in major college football. Pryor arrived at Ohio State drawing comparisons to Vince Young, and even going 22-5 in games which he's appeared even with a scintillating show in the 2010 Rose Bowl hasn't always been enough to satisfy the Buckeye faithful. One of them may take a giant step forward Saturday. One of their teams is certain to do so. "I think they've traveled a similar road," Ohio State coach Jim Tressel said. "They both got put in there at an early point in their freshman year. ... And like any young kids, you can tell both of them are very passionate, both of them have tremendous big-play ability. They love what they're doing." Harris and Pryor met through Miami defensive lineman Marcus Forston. Pryor and Forston got to know each other at the U.S. Army All-American Game before going to college, and Forston who was Harris' teammate at Miami Northwestern High as well arranged their first conversation. Forston likes Pryor. Not surprisingly, he likes Harris more. "We go up against the best quarterback in the nation every day," Forston said. "Going against Jacory every day, we can be ready for any quarterback." By now, Harris and Pryor are used to hype, which is why they can easily shrug off any notion that Saturday is simply a 1-on-1 battle between the two of them. "I think they're two competitive guys," Miami coach Randy Shannon said. "But I know Jacory is a mature kid and understands, It can't be me. It's got to be our team.' Jacory has studied a lot of film and he understands that when he's just being Jacory, great things happen at the University of Miami." They say the same about Pryor at Ohio State. When he throws a touchdown pass, the Buckeyes are 17-1. When he doesn't throw one, they're 5-4. Pretty simple math there. "Me and Jacory have to go into the ballgame thinking whomever turns this ball over is going to lose the game," Pryor said. "That's when you're going to put your defense in a bad position, and that's when the gamechangers start." They'll likely say hello before the game, and then share an embrace afterward. The 3? hours or so of football in between those acts, they might tell the tale of how 2010 will set up for both quarterbacks. And neither can hardly wait for the big show to arrive. "I think 105,000 people, I'm pretty sure it's going to be crazy," Harris said. "For a quarterback, well, for me, it's fun. You go to big schools to be in an atmosphere like this. It's going to be a fun, exciting thing." Continued from 1B QBs highlight big matchup n etters to take the first game 2 5-21. Aload of defensive errors a llowed the Titans to tower o ver the Devils in the second a nd fourth games, although A von Park was able to domin ate 25-16 in the third to keep things even. But in a nip and tuck tiebreaker game, Tenoroc held on for a 16-14 win to take the match. "They had one girl that just kept sending it down the line and we did not respond," Devlin said. "Sometimes we acted like we did not know where we were supposed to be on the court. This is a match we should have won." Amatch the girls would be eager to win was Thursday's contest at Sebring as they looked for another county upset. See Sunday's News-Sun for a recap of the contest.

Let us heal it. Center for Wound Care and Hyperbaric Medicine Physician and Self-Referrals Accepted7200 S. George Blvd. € Sebring, Florida (863) 382-2032 HEALTHYLIVING Dear Pharmacist: My son i s a lineman who climbs a l ot in heat of the desert here i n California. He sweats so m uch with all the equipm ent he wears that it m akes him cramp. He d rinks plenty of water a nd Gatorade. Besides f oods high in potassium, c an he take a supplem ent? L.S. Palm Desert, Calif. Answer: Cramping h appens down the road a fter other symptoms of d ehydration occur. We s hould all be mindful of our e lectrolyte status, rather than w ait for our body to yell at u s with a nasty cramp. Gatorade (and similar beve rages) are popular because t hey quickly help to repleni sh electrolytes. Another one i s Pedialyte, the option reco mmended by pharmacists f or youngsters who get sick, a lthough adults can use it t oo. These are extremely p opular, and in a moment, I 'll tell you a secret about a nother option to restore e lectrolyte balance, and it g rows on trees! I bet many of you reading t his are short on electrolytes a nd don't even realize. You m ay be wondering what e xactly is an electrolyte? It's j ust a charged particle called a n "ion," which generates e lectricity in your body. You d idn't realize you were an e lectric being did you? Well, y ou are, and all healing t akes place on the energetic l evel. Ions are the spark to k eep your electrical circuit r unning. Electrolytes make y our heart beat in rhythm, y our hands move, your musc les work (without crampi ng) and in fact, all of your n erve impulses flow smoothl y! Dehydration is dangerous. I t can happen to athletes, t hose with the stomach flu or p eople with malabsorption i ssues (think Celiac, C andida, IBS, colitis). It c an happen to people like y our son who sweats from t he heat. Having lived in F lorida 35 years, I hear you l oud and clear. Now, my secret: Coconuts. The water extracted from coconuts is isotonic, and it's so close in chemical composition to human blood plasma that it has been used for intravenous hydration in emergencies. Seriously, look that up. Today, coconut water is available as a drink at health food stores. It's the quickest and cheapest way to improve electrolyte balance in your body, it tastes nice, plus it's free of chemicals and unnatural sweeteners. Coconuts are famous for their anti-Candida properties and have about 15 times the amount of potassium compared to a leading sports drink and more potassium than two bananas. You can crack your own "young coconuts" like Sam does for me, they are white, not brown and hairy. Or keep it simple and buy commercially prepared "coconut water." There are about a dozen brands, so make sure yours is 100 percent pure coconut water, without added sweeteners. Pulp is great, if you like to chew. I always have coconut water in my house, and drink it or cook with it daily. Substitute coconut water (for plain water) as your base for cooking soup, making smoothies and steeping tea. Did you know?Astudy just proved that habitual chocolate intake was associated with a lower rate of heart failure.

Paramedics in Memphis are using a newly adopted procedure to cool the core body temperature of people who have suffered heart attacks, a process shown to increase chances of survival. The Memphis Fire Department's 33 ambulances have been equipped with coolers used to chill saline solution that paramedics pump into the veins of people who have suffered cardiac arrest but regain signs of life through cardiopulmonary resuscitation. The process, called "induced therapeutic hypothermia," continues for 24 hours at the hospital, with doctors using watercooled vests and leg pads to keep the body temperature lower than the normal 98.6 degrees. Doctors say lowering the patient's temperature to about 92 degrees helps limit damage to brain cells caused by oxygen loss. "Patients who used to go into a vegetative state can walk out" of the hospital, said Memphis Deputy Fire Chief Gary Ludwig. The American Heart Association endorsed the therapy in 2005, and hospitals were first to use it. Three Memphis hospitals in Memphis are equipped for the procedure: Baptist Memorial HospitalMemphis, Methodist University Hospital, and Saint Francis on Park. The therapy then moved into ambulances. A2008 article on estimated that about 100 of 24,000 emergency medical service agencies nationwide had adopted the practice. The Commercial Appeal reported Tuesday that Memphis paramedics started using the process in late July. Dr. Joe Holley, medical director for t he Memphis division of Emergency Medic al Services, said the city is near the tip of the spear o n this one." "It's beginning to pick u p all over the country," Holl ey told the newspaper. Nationally, 5 percent of cardiac arrest victims a re resuscitated, although th at figure is 16 percent in Memphis, fire departme nt officials said. Of two dozen patien ts who received the treatme nt in the first year of use at Methodist Universi ty Hospital, 13 were able to g o home, rather dying or goin g to a nursing home, said D r. Paul Deaton, medical dire ctor of the intensive care un it at the hospital. Memphis paramedi cs have at least one succe ss story under their belts. In late July, an 82-yea rold woman's heart stopp ed beating as she sat in a car o n south Memphis street. CP R helped restore her pulse, an d the cooling therapy help ed save the woman, who ju st happens to be the mother of a firefighter.

ARAContentWhat does "light," "low" or mild" mean to you? For m any consumers, these words m ay suggest a healthier or s afer product. But when it c omes to cigarettes, there's no s uch thing as a safe cigarette. H ealth experts agree that no m atter what they taste, smell o r look like, all cigarettes are h armful to your health. According to research from t he National Cancer Institute, t he use of descriptors like light," "low" and "mild" in t he labeling and advertising of t obacco products mislead m any smokers to believe that t hese products are less harmf ul and may help smokers quit o r even reduce the risk of d eveloping smoking-related c ancers and other diseases. Recognizing this fact, the U .S. Food and Drug A dministration now prohibits t he use of the words "light," low" or "mild" on the packa ges of tobacco products. Because the Tobacco C ontrol Act is aimed at prov iding the public with a better u nderstanding of the health e ffects of tobacco use, here a re a few other common misc onceptions about smoking. Myth: Tobacco is only a ddictive for certain people. Fact: While level and character of nicotine addiction varies from person to person, nicotine is chemically addictive. According to the U.S. Surgeon General, tobacco addiction can be as difficult to break as addiction to heroin or cocaine. Myth: Lower levels of tar and nicotine in "light," "low" or "mild" cigarettes offer smokers a safer alternative to full tar and nicotine. Fact: The National Cancer Institute has concluded that light cigarettes provide no benefit to smokers'health. People who switch to light cigarettes from regular cigarettes are likely to inhale the same amount of hazardous chemicals, and remain at high risk for developing smokingrelated cancers and other diseases. Myth: If you've always been a smoker, quitting now won't do you any good. Fact: Quitting will always lead to better health. A35year-old man who smokes will, on average, live about five years longer by quitting, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. Immediate resources are available online or over the phone.

Some patients will describe the image as a "tadpole" or "bug" moving in their line of sight. These images seem to change position with eye or head movement. The layman's term for this condition is floaters, specifically, vitreous floaters. Upon dilated examination, the eye doctor will observe one or more light gray to dark black opacities floating within the vitreous gel. This gel makes up about 80 percent of the globe. It is the largest structure within the eye. With age, the vitreous thins and may separate from the back of the eye. This is called a posterior vitreous detachment, or PVD. This is quite common and usually harmless. Floaters are caused by tiny bits of vitreous gel or cells that cast shadows on the retina. The opacities may take on many different shapes, as mentioned above and will float within the vitreous as the eye moves. The doctor will also look for pigment floating within the vitreous, retinal tears or detachments, vitreous hemorrhaging, or retinal hemorrhaging. The presence of pigment floating within the vitreous or a vitreous hemorrhage carries a high probability that the patient also has a retinal tear. Light flashes are sometimes a complaint resulting from floaters. They are usually considered to be a result of traction between the vitreous gel and the inner lining of the eye, known as the retina. The vitreous gel tugs on the retina with eye movement, which is why patients complain more of flashes of light when they move their eyes. The incidence of flashing lights increases with age as the vitreous gel continues to liquefy, becoming more mobile. Flashes of light may signify a higher risk of retinal tears. This is not to be confused with the zig-zag pattern of flashing lights associated with migraine headaches. These type of flashing lights usually last about 20 minutes and are sometimes multicolored. A headache may or may not follow. No vitreous or retinal problems are associated with these types of flashing lights. As aggravating as they may initially seem, no treatment is recommended for floaters. Most vitreous floaters will seem to become smaller or collapse on themselves over time. Gravity also acts to pull larger floaters down out of the lin e of sight of the patient, but this may take time. The brain will learn to suppress the image over time, to the point that the patient is not aware of the floater at all. If a retinal tea r is found, the patient is referred to a retinal special ist for treatment. The retina l doctor may recommend las er or cryotherapy within 24 to 72 hours to avoid the devel opment of a retinal detachment. The majority of patients who have a retinal detachment are aware of a persistant curtain or shadow som ewhere in their visual field. If this occurs, they are to return to their eye doctor immediately for further eva luation.

It is normal to ask these questions, especially when it seems like there are constant struggles and challenging circumstances. God's word shows us in II Corinthians 4:715 that God is fully aware of the difficulties we face and explains what He aims to accomplish in our lives on a daily basis. Verses 8-9 show the Lord's recognition of the battles we face daily. "We are hardpressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed." Each of the pressures that we deal with on a daily basis may differ in one way or another whether they are deadlines at work, financial obligations, and tasks at home that need to be accomplished, etc. In addition to our daily pressures, our circumstances can cause us to feel a little confused or unsure of things on occasion. Sometimes, we can be caught off guard by others reactions toward us in a way that may hurt us deeply. Other times, we can become discouraged by our circumstances. When we are faced with difficulties, it is normal to have certain feelings as a result of our circumstances. However, we have a choice in how to respond in each situation as they arise daily. Try to imagine God desiring to use you and your daily circumstances to demonstrate His power through your life to bring honor and glory to Him, which may help others want to know more about Him. Verse 4 says "But we have this treasur e in earthen vessel s, that the excellen ce of the power ma y be of God and no t of us." God desires to use us as His earthly vessels and as ambassadors of Christ. In choosing to follo w after Christ, we should remember that our physical body is to be set apart for Christ. The purpose of our mortal flesh is to allow Him to live His life in and throug h us in representation of His death and resurrection in ou r lives. Verses 10-12 remind us that we are "always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus' sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. So then death is working in us, but life in you." Many of us do forget that we can choose to be a vesse l, and often react by falling in to a victim mentality. We migh t start to feel sorry for ourselves or just feel like givin g up on life. This is the state the enemy wants us to be in He wants us to be paralyzed and take our eyes off Christ Another passage of scriptur e to meditate on is Galatians 2:20. "I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me.

Our backgrounds are similar and we share the same religious views. About two months ago, Pam suddenly stopped speaking to me. I have wracked my brain and honestly have no idea why. I have called, e-mailed and sent her letters to which she tersely replied, "Leave me alone." I'm sick over it and don't know what to do. My kids love Pam and I adore her children and family. I cannot for the life of me imagine what would cause her to discard our friendship with no explanation. I heard through the neighborhood grapevine that people suspect there must have been some kind of infidelity involved such as Pam's husband hitting on me or mine on her. According to one neighbor, "It's the only plausible reason" a friendship like ours would end so abruptly. I am beside myself. What should I do? Haven't a Clue in New York DearHaven't a Clue: I wish you had written me before soliciting advice from your neighbors because now you've got them talking. There may be something going on in your friend's life having nothing to do with you that she's not comfortable talking about right now which could also account for her silence. Try not to internalize what has happened and allow her the space she's asking for. The truth will come out eventually. It always does ... DearAbby: I am a disabled man and I live with my 75-year-old mother. Most of the time we get along OK, but Mom is a "clutter bug." I have never known her to throw anything away. There are newspapers and magazines stacked everywhere in our home dating back at least 10 years. Mom doesn't want to invite anyone into the house. She says it's "a mess," but she won't take advantage of any professional cleaning or organizing services. We haven't entertained in 30 years! Could this be a sign of Alzheimer's? What can I do about her? Please help. Buried Alive in Akron DearBuried Alive: If your mother has been this way for 30 years, it's not Alzheimer's she's a compulsive hoarder. She may need psychological help and/or medication to overcome her anxiety about letting anything go. If you have a social worker who helps with your disability, talk to that person about finding help for your mother. If you don't, talk to her physician. The situation as you describe it indicates the house could be a safety hazard possibly a fire trap. Please do not procrastinate any longer because your lives could depend upon it. DearAbby: Is it odd to eat with one hand in one's lap? I didn't realize that I did it until my fiance's parents mentioned it to me at a dinner. When we subsequently ate with my family I realized that every person i n my family eats the same way. My future in-laws say they have never heard of such a thing. My grandmot her says it is good table man ners, and I have no intentio n of changing. (My fiance an d I are both third-generation Americans.) What do we teach our (future) kids? Properly Taught in Arizon a DearProperly Taught: Teach them the proper table manners that you were taught as a child. According to Emily Post, by the time a child is 12, he or she shoul d have learned to "sit with good posture and feet firml y on the floor throughout the meal. (And) keep free hand in lap when not cutting foo d or passing items." Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Sudden end to long friendship becomes neighborhood gossip DIVERSIONS Dear Abby Follow the News-Sun on and By CHRISTYLEMIRE APMovie CriticJoaquin Phoenix may t ruly have walked away f rom a much-heralded acti ng career two years ago to p ursue his artistic express ion as a rapper. His look, w hich went from dark and m ysterious to shaggy and d oughy, may simply have b een part of his transformat ive process. Or not. It becomes increasingly d ifficult to care about disc erning what's real and w hat's a hoax as the docum entary "I'm Still Here" d rones on. We have to use t he word "documentary" l oosely, however, because it s uggests an attempt at capt uring fact on film. What I'm Still Here" captures is q uestionable. Casey Affleck, an e steemed actor in his own r ight who is directing for t he first time, gets such intim ate access to Phoenix, it's o ften uncomfortable to w atch, especially when P hoenix is bent over a toilet y acking or having a particul arly vile prank played on h im while he's asleep. That's unsurprising, g iven that Affleck is marr ied to Phoenix's sister, S ummer, and the two cos tarred in Gus Van Sant's To Die For" 15 years ago. A nd similar to Van Sant's r ecent films, "I'm Still H ere" often has a natural a esthetic and a languid, m eandering vibe that makes y ou wonder what's going to h appen next that is, if y ou're still awake. Affleck's camera stalks P hoenix as he walks and t alks and rants and smokes ( four things he does for the e ntirety of the film), and t ries to explain the conund rum of reconciling art and c elebrity. If he watches his o wn performances, does he b ecome too conscious of them, and does that affect future performances? If he reads articles about himself that describe him as emotional and intense, is he really that way, or does he become that way because it's the image that's being projected onto him? Intriguing existential questions, all. And at times, "I'm Still Here" does give the impression that it's trying to achieve an understanding of the fragility of fame. Mostly, though, it feels like an elaborate puton, with celebrities such as Ben Stiller and Sean Combs in on the joke. The fact that Affleck often has multiple cameras going at once is a hint. So are the closing credits, in which Affleck and Phoenix are listed as cowriters. If there is an actual structure here, though, it's often elusive. Phoenix complains a lot about being misunderstood, gives passionate bear hugs to fellow actors Sean Penn, Bruce Willis, Jack Nicholson and Danny Glover at a play rehearsal, and makes a halfhearted attempt at attending President Obama's inauguration. He also snorts what looks like cocaine off the naked breasts of a woman who is supposedly a prostitute, smokes joint after joint and cavorts with the various sycophants who are constantly around and frequently nude. He also raps badly. His rhymes are monotone, his beats are tinny and his lyrics are inane. He agonizes in his home studio and performs awkwardly on stage in front packed, bewildered crowds in Las Vegas and Miami. When he finally gets Combs to sit down and listen to his demo, Combs is polite but direct: Phoenix is not good enough to do this. The producer's reaction crushes Phoenix. But is it a genuine reaction? Phoenix does seem crestfallen, and beats himself up as convincingly as he does after his infamously painful Letterman appearance. (Affleck includes the whole interview, which is just as much of a scream as it was when it first aired in 2008.) Then again, this is a two-time Oscar nominee for "Gladiator" and "Walk the Line." This is a guy who can be frighteningly good at what he does when it comes to acting, at least. Ultimately, though, the person depicted in "I'm Still Here" becomes more sullen, demanding, abusive and paranoid. If we're truly witnessing the unraveling of a talented man in his prime, it's just sad. If it's all performance art, though, it's just pointless. "I'm Still Here," a Magnolia Pictures release, is not rated but contains copious amounts of sex, drugs and rock n'roll some of which may actually have been real and much profanity and full-frontal nudity. Phoenix's I'm Still Here' is self-indulgent, pointless Movie Review I'm Still Here' Rating: Not rated (contains sex, drugs, full frontal nudity and profanity) Running time: 106 minutes Review: (of 4) Courtesy photo J oaquin Phoenix has gone with the shaggy look since abandoing his acting career.
