By SAMANTHAGHOLAR firstname.lastname@example.orgSEBRING Many married couples often work together in their family owned businesses or their specialized fields. One local husband and wife, both doctors, took that to the extreme recently when the Dr. David Guerra was the doctor in charge when his wife, Dr. Summer Khan, delivered the couples'first son. Khan and Guerra are both practicing physicians at Highlands Regional Medical Center. Both doctors are established obstetrician/gynecologists. Khan and Guerra met while still in medical school at Louisiana State University and were married soon after. Khan arrived in Sebring in November 2008 while her husband was finishing up a residency in Alabama. "I was here for about two years before he got here. In that time I delivered about 200 children. I was with each patient throughout the pregnancy and I delivered each of the children," said Khan. Khan and Guerra have three children of their own: Isabel, 5; Gabriella, 3; and their newborn son David Guerra, named for his father. Baby David arrived Sept. 15 only a few short hours after Khan had performed a hysterectomy on one patient and delivered two other newborns. "After the first delivery, I went home to rest for a while then I came back. I performed the hysterectomy and then during the second delivery I started having contractions about the same time my patient did. They were the same minutes apart as my patients," Khan said. Khan had been having contractions for a while, but soon realized that these contractions were not the same as before.

It opened March 1. Areservoir, or food bank, is a central distribution hub where donations of food are collected and sorted. Food pantries, smaller sites where consumers go to get the food, stock their shelves from the reservoir. Prior to the local distribution center, pantries had to travel to Tampa or Lakeland to shop for food. This created high overhead which many of the churches running the food pantries couldn't afford to pay. Now that has changed. At the time the food reservoir opened there were just three agencies with pantries. By the end of October there will be 28. Bill Stephenson, who has been with the team since the beginning is thrilled.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY firstname.lastname@example.orgSEBRING It isn't every day a reporter gets to interview a former president of the United States. But there he was all 6 feet, 4 inches of him in the News-Sun's reception area, having arrived directly from addressing the students at Sun 'N Lake Elementary School Abraham Lincoln himself. Chester Damron has been doing impressions of Lincoln for about 36 years, when he wasn't working at his day job as a Seventh Day Adventist missionary in the Far East and then a chaplain for Florida Hospitals in the southeast It all started by accident when he was recuperating from surgery in the hospital and he let his beard grow. On a visit one day his 7year-old daughter looked him over and said, "You look just like Abraham Lincoln, and he's my favorite president" And so it began. Since then he has appeared in large productions, including at Constitution Hall in Washington D.C. and the Lincoln Memorial, as well as visiting hundreds of classrooms. Damron doesn't pretend to be a Lincoln scholar, but he knows a lot, and has a strong emotional bond with his subject. Several times in the course of the interview, Damron was brought to tears as he spoke of Lincoln not a perfect man by any means, Damron said, but "his heart was right. He was there to give. Lincoln had the great habit of forgiveness. He wasn't soft, but compassionate." He finds young students relate to Lincoln and aren't afraid to engage him. On arriving at Sun 'N Lake Elementary, for example, he was walking down a corridor when a young girl passed him. "Are you Abraham Lincoln?" asked the girl, taking in the stove pipe hat, the black frock coat and beard. "Yes," Damron said. "I thought you were dead," said the girl. Damron said he gets that a lot. He also fields many questions. Children mostly want to know if Lincoln had children yes, he had four sons, three of whom died before reaching adulthood. Did he have a dog? Yes. Did he have a favorite song? Yes, and according to Damron it was "Dixie," although he was also partial to "The Battle Hymn of the Republic." Lincoln, Damron said, weighed 140 pounds, wore size 14 shoes and kept things such as notes in his hat. Lincoln's voice was said to be high and thin, but could be heard at great distances. He loved to laugh, although he was melancholy man. According to Damron, Lincoln was never baptized or joined a church. He had planned on joining the New York Avenue Presbyterian Church in Washington D.C. on Easter Day, 1865, but was assassinated the Thursday before. About the assassination, Damron said Lincoln did have a dream about being assassinated. In the dream he woke up and was walking downstairs at the White House. He heard a commotion and asked someone what was going on. The man told him that the president had been shot. In the dream Lincoln went back upstairs and back to bed. Damron has not yet left town. He is visiting Walker Memorial Academy today and will be bringing Lincoln to the Seventh-Day Adventist Church of Avon Park at 1410 West Avon Blvd. for a special vespers program 7 p.m. Saturday night. The public is welcome.

Sebring High School art teacher Steven Van Dam explained that a few of his students were very interested in the exhibit and began working on pieces which are now on display at the gallery. Fred Leavitt, Heartland Cultural Alliance president, was one of the contributors who helped but together the exhibit. "There are four pieces of art here that were created by my students. Two were joint efforts, the other two were done by individual students," Van Dam said. On Wednesday, 16 students visited the gallery at 112 N. Ridgewood. The students spent the morning critiquing and analyzing the different sculptures, paintings and murals. Eleventh grader Stephanie Struck was one of the students who created a piece for the exhibit. Struck spent several minutes looking at a piece hanging on the north side of the gallery. "I really love it. It says so much about what the artist thought about what has happened in the Gulf," said Struck. The "Spill Your Heart Out" exhibit is primarily pieces of art depicting artists feelings regarding the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. There are also several sculptures and various other types of artwork on display. Struck created a piece with classmate Alex Chung. The duo's piece was a depiction of their thoughts about the spill. Both Struck and Chung were proud of their work. The exhibit will remain on display through Saturday. Joseph Anthony, a local artist who helped coordinate the exhibit, is excited about the turnout so far and hopes to have more visitors throughout the remaining few days of the show. "It's been great. We had a great opening and we want everyone to be exposed to the art. We are trying to grow it, trying to get art out to new people and to get people into downtown to support what so many are doing," Anthony said. There are many local art ist whose work is on display at the gallery. Most of t he pieces are still up for pu rchase as well as for viewin g. "We have a lot more even ts in the works, so we hope th at we will have more peop le coming out in the future ," Anthony said.

h usband that she felt that it w as their time. "I told everyone in the r oom, "All right I've delive red two babies and done a h ysterectomy, but I think I'm i n labor now. I need to take t o a break!"" Khan said with a laugh. Khan and Guerra prepared f or the procedure like any o ther, but the husband took s pecial care of his wife. The c ouple had to get approval f rom the hospital in order for t he husband to perform the C aesarian section on Khan. A second physician was p resent at the procedure to p rovide any needed assist ance. "I mean, who's going to t ake care of you better than y our husband and your best f riend?" Khan said. Khan e xplained that her husband w as very careful and precise t hroughout the procedure. T he couple was happy to w elcome their first son. G uerra was even happier that b aby David had inherited m ost of his Cuban features. After a successful delive ry, Khan could not help put t o go back into doctor mode. K han asked her husband and t he nurses how her patients a nd infants she had just d elivered were doing. "They all told me to stop," K han said with a laugh. "I c ouldn't help it though. I'm a physician and my patients a re still my patients." The fact that both Khan a nd Guerra are so engaged w ith their patients is what m akes them jewels to H ighlands Regional as well a s the community. Even b efore Guerra's arrival in S ebring in July, Khan had b een an advocate for teen p regnancy prevention, abort ion alternatives and other s ervices. Guerra has worked i n homeless clinics and prov ides many of the same servi ces as his wife. "Our dream when we left LSU was to open an Urban Care Clinic in New Orleans, but after Katrina that was destroyed. We are a unique couple, and love what we do and we just want to have a successful practice here and continue to serve the community," Khan said. The duo continues to educate themselves in all the latest scientific advances. Both Guerra and Khan are newly trained in the scientific field of obstetrics and gynecology. Guerra is a standout in robotics assisted and laparoscopic hysterectomies. Guerra also specializes in the treatment of incontinence and infertility. Both have fallen in love with the community and plan to be around for a while. "We want to eventually work as medical missionaries for third world countries in like 10 or 15 years. But for now we are happy with the great family field we have here. Sebring is a great town," said Dr. Khan. Khan plans to continue her maternity leave through late October and return to work in November. The couple have become an asset to the Highlands Regional team and work to continually improve the community with their service. www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, October 1, 2010Page 3A SpectatorsFREEAdmission OktoberFest 2010 The Avon Park Main Street CRA and Chamber of Commerce present:www.apoktoberfest.com Food,Fun &Chrome!

"The drastic thing," said Stephenson, "is that 40 to 50 percent of the food would have gone into the dumpster." Stephenson said the reservoir is working on collecting statistics to determine more exactly how many people are benefiting from the program and how many of them are children. In the meantime financing is still a challenge. Pantries pay a "shared maintenance fee" to the reservoir of 19 cents a pound. This provides roughly 40 percent of the revenue needed. More funding is always needed.

City folk are complaining w ith increased bitterness that t he county government is r eneging on past agreements a nd breaking long held promi ses, forcing municipal taxp ayers to take on more and m ore of the costs once borne b y the county as a whole. The underlying reason for t he bitterness traces directly t o how public services are p aid for and delivered to the t axpayers. Historically the county, u nderstanding that some f acilities and services provide d by a city are often used by p eople who do not live in the c ity, reimbursed the cities for t he cost of that use. With tax revenues down, h owever, the county governm ent is hacking away at its b udget. Municipal officials unders tand this. They are too. What upsets them is that t he county is breaking its p romises in order to balance i ts budget at what city offic ials see as the municipal t axpayer's expense. For example, the county h istorically has reimbursed c ities 50 percent of their r ecreation costs, but this year it only intends to reimburse 25 percent. Not only does this mean there won't be enough money to keep public parks safe and clean, but also that the city taxpayers will be subsidizing the county resident park user. In the case of Lake Placid, for example, slightly more than 1,700 town residents pay the bulk of maintaining ball fields used by the roughly 35,000 people who live in the immediate area, but are county residents only. In Sebring city council member John Griffin said he estimated 85 percent of ball park users there were from outside the city. Given the circumstances, which government, the cities ask, has the larger obligation? Another point of contention between Sebring and the county has to do with the archivist assigned to the Sebring Historical Society. Putting aside the issue of a historical archivist's value, the fact is that Sebring and the county had an understanding. In exchange for $85,000 of seed money provided by the society the county signed an agreement pledging support for both the society's physical space and the position of an archivist. First the county cut the position completely. Then it agreed to fund the archivist's benefit package if Sebring and the society paid the balance. The demise of the position is on the Sebring City Council's head, but it never should have come to that, and it wouldn't have come to that if the board of commissioners had kept the county's promise. Finally, the county has cut corners regarding the costs of collecting data for local mitigation strategies, despite the fact that it had signed an interlocal agreement to take on the responsibility of collecting that data on behalf of the municipalities. Mitigation is an effort to look ahead. The idea is that by identifying and dealing with problems before a natural disaster, there will be less devastation during the emergency itself. In order to properly identify problem areas, however, data has to be collected in order to prove the danger exists. Without the hard facts to show FEMA, the county may have to turn down grant money in the future. We know times are hard and choices difficult, but it seems to us that city residents have a right to be upset. After all, they pay county taxes as well as city taxes and lately they have not been getting their money's worth.

Elwell is choice for commissionerEditor: Don Elwell is my choice for election to Highlands County Board of County Commission from District 2. I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Elwell over lunch a couple of months ago and I was impressed with his knowledge of what is going on in the county and with his ideas of fiscal conservatism. He didn't have the answers to all my questions but within 24 hours he was back to me explaining about the issues I raised. I was impressed. He took the time to research an issue and respond to me. I have seen him several times since then. He has always greeted me by first name and I believe he has the interests of all the people of Highlands County first and foremost. He is versed in modern communications (Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, etc), which shows he keeps up on modern trends. Good luck, Mr. Elwell, and here's to a successful campaign. You will make a fine commissioner. Tom Walsh SebringA horror story for RepublicansEditor: The Republicans desperately want to get back in control of the government so that they can continue the devastation they created during the eight dismal years of the Bush administration. They want to dump the health care plan signed into law by President Obama. Why? Because it's for the people, not special interests. We now have a Consumer Financial Protection Bureau in the works that will be a tough new regulatory body on behalf of consumers. Here are some of the things that the Republicans do not want. Simpler mortgage disclosure forms: The new law requires the agency to set up a standard type of mortgage disclosure form. Overdraft fees: The regulator will have the power to craft new rules that would make it clear what kinds of fees banks can and can't slap on consumers. Credit scores: The law allows a consumer to get an actual credit score along with a report. Ban on liar loans': The regulator would be charged with ensuring lenders are documenting borrowers' income before originating a mortgage and verify a borrower's ability to repay the loan. Pre-payment penalty fees: The law requires the consumer bureau to crack down on penalty fees consumers often face when they pay off mortgages early. Mandatory arbitration contracts: Many mortgages, credit cards and auto loans will force the buyer and seller to hash out disputes before an arbitration panel.. Children will no longer be denied coverage for preexisting conditions: Insurance plans can't deny coverage due to a pre-existing condition to children under age 19. For adults, the same provision goes into effect in 2014. Prohibit insurers from rescinding coverage: It's illegal for insurers to drop a customer when they become sick or search for an error on a customer's insurance application and then deny payment for service when the person gets sick. Free preventive care: All new plans must cover certain preventive services without charging a deductible, copay or coinsurance. No lifetime limits on coverage: Insurers no longe r can impose lifetime dollar limits on essential benefits, like hospital stays or expen sive treatments. Unrestricted doctor choice: Plans must allow pediatricians and obstetrician/gynecologists to get pr imary care physician status. This eliminates the requirement for patients to get prior-authorization from their insurer to see a pediatrician or OB/GYN or other specialists. Level charges for emer gency services: Insurers must remove prior authoriz ations for ER services. Patient-friendly appeals process: Insurers will have to establish new appeals processes for claims. This means that while a claim is under appeal, your insurer has to continue to pay your claims, and continue paying for subsequent treatment, until the matter is resolved. You have to agree the above is a real horror story ... if you're a Republican. Sandy Olees ky Sebrin g Who is responsible?Editor: They say on TVnews, "I f you just tuned in, this is an update on today's devastating economic crisis." Millions of American work ing people are tuning in because they are afraid. Th is update is necessary because of the constant mantra that it's the Obama administration that caused this horren dous disaster. Ahuge lie. I had provided a history of Big Business, Corporate America exploiting workin g people, going back to the 1890s (Robber Barons) for huge profits at expense of working people. The most recent history includes the Enron scandal, leaving 100 million workers with the combination of no jobs, pen sions, insurance and/or health care. The corporate elite suffered no penalty; in fact, CEOs received billion dollar golden parachutes. The Bush II administration gave corporate Americ a billions (a trillion?) in tax cuts to provide jobs; yet, it actually lost over 6 million jobs to Asia, initiated by President Reagan. The Republican Congress wrote its own laws to circumvent existing regulations, which led to toxic mortgages, derivatives and housing meltdown. Outsourcing con tinues. Thus, the economy went from 22-plus million jobs and $3 billion surplus to minus-6 million jobs and $ 8 trillion deficit January 2009 That includes $5 trillion through eight years and $3 trillion to bail out corporate America. Working America was left out. And, Corporat e America (Wall Street, bankers, et al) provided no funds to regional banks to lend small businesses for payroll, material, etc.; instead, it "invested" those funds to increase profits. Three trillion dollars more have been added through stimulus programs, which saved 3 to 4 million jobs: teachers, police and fireme n, construction and governme nt employees. The Obama administratio n set about correcting the situ ation with the Republicans obstructing its effort every inch of the way. Their pow erful propaganda machine convinced the public President Obama caused th is disaster. They call his effor t socialism, taking from the rich to give to the poor: we lfare. What about corporate welfare? They received $6 trillion in nine years to sav e the economy, they who created the catastrophe. Working people, listen up! Gabriel Rea d Avon Park My new cell phone calls people on its own. I know this because people I don't know call me back, asking why I phoned. I tell them I didn't phone them my phone did. Which makes them sore. Unlike the first cell phone I had it was big and heavy and all I could use it for was to phone other people, which I never did because it cost $400 a minute to do that my new phone is a "smart phone." It is called the HTC Incredible and it is based on Google's new Android technology a pretty creepy technology when you think about it. An android, in science fiction, is a robot that thinks and acts like a human being which could explain the calls my phone is making. My Incredible is otherwise amazing. It is a computer that fits in the palm of my hand it's 50,000 times more powerful than the giant IBM machines that took up whole city blocks just 30 years ago. It offers an "open source" operating system that means anyone can develop software programs to make it do "cool" things. One program offers GPS. Ahuman voice tells me exactly how to get "Connelly's Irish Pub to your right" exactly where I want to go. Another lets me display all the bar-code tags I use for my gym, supermarket, etc. so I don't have to carry all those tags around. Others let me call people anywhere in the world for free, determine the weather no matter where I am, or get instant information and comparative pricing on any product in any store. Which is a blessing and a curse. As easy as it is to understand and use the Incredible, it takes time to install and master useful applications. And no sooner do you master one than Google or somebody else invents several hundred more. If you ask me, these new technologies are driving a quiet revolution in our country. The old divides rich vs. poor, liberals vs. conservatives, Democrats vs. Republicans are so 2008. All are giving way to the new divide: people who understand technology vs. those who don't. The technology-aware will soon rule the world, if they don't already. They already know everything about us everything we do is electronically accessible somewhere. So dependent are we on the technologies they produce we rely on sophisticated software programs to access our money so we can buy food, gas and, thanks to technological confusion, much-needed alcohol that he who controls the digital world can, at will, control most everything in our world. I'm waiting for the day when some pimple-faced kid, tired of still getting wedgies in his senior year of college, will write a program that shuts down our cars, our homes, everything until we hand over the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders and all the gold bullion held by the Federal Reserve. The technologically aware are different from you and me. They invented texting, a technology that makes you press both thumbs against a miniature cell-phone keypad to bastardize the English language. And here I thought we'd mastered keyboard technology with the typewriter, which utilizes all our fingers. What will the technology-aware make us use next? Ahammer and chisel! In any event, my new phone has so many new applications and doodads that I bump things while trying to access other things, and my phone calls people I don't know. But I shouldn't complain.

Bueford's report also states that family m embers said that Perez walked to work b ecause she was afraid of driving and often s tated she would die in a traffic accident. Perez had two husbands and another famil y member die in traffic accidents, and had recently celebrated her 47th birthday, sister Hackie Maldonado and daughter Stephanie Cosme told Bueford. Bueford stated that alcohol was not a factor in the accident, and no reckless driving was apparent from witness statements, but he did advise the Assistant State Attorney Steve Houchin of the incident. Perez was transported to the District 10 Medical Examiner's Office in Winter Haven. Continued from page 1A c ould be heard at the property l ine, which is at the fence a bout 20 feet from the back of t he kennel. The neighbor who comp lained is about 800 feet from t he property owned, Finch t old the News-Sun. "The neighbor moved in to t he rental property after we w ere already here, but I can u nderstand that he wants to e njoy his property," Finch s aid. In 1990, the previous owner o f the Dawg House property g ot a special exemption to h ave the kennel business at t he current location of 69 D awg House Lane by the c ounty adjustment board. "We do everything we can t o keep the noise down. We p ut the dogs in after 6 p.m., w e make sure the doors are c losed to the outside runs, and w e even installed sound baff les," Finch added. "What we are trying to do i s get the noise ordinance c hanged to reflect a more a ccurate measurement of the n oise as well as some guidel ines to cover agricultural l and instead of just commerc ial or residential," he said. Special Magistrate Pam C arson agreed with Finch in 2 008 that the ordinance did n ot apply in his case. "...even if proper warning n otice were given, or if a w arning notice not required, S ection 5.6-105 does not a pply to the Respondent (the D awg House), who owns agricultural land which abuts agricultural land, in that the Code Section specifically governs noise disturbances plainly audible across residential or commercial property lines," Carlson wrote in 2008. But County Attorney Ross Macbeth disagrees with both Carlson's decision and the proposed changes. Macbeth filed in circuit court on behalf of the county to appeal the county magistrate's decision, and told commissioners that he did not believe that Finch's changes were appropriate. "I do not believe that what is proposed here is a very workable solution because of the rest of the noise ordinance and it could make the rest of the ordinance unenforceable," Macbeth said. Rhodes and Finch proposed adding another exemption to the 11 already on the books concerning noise, and wish to have a more practical approach like measurements of decibel levels at the complainant's residence instead of just listening for dog barking in a 15-minute period. But Finch thinks something else may be going on with the pursuit of this case than just a code violation. "I don't understand what is going on here, it makes no sense. The county has spent over $17,000 on this already for just a $50 fine. It makes no sense to follow up with this after the county magistrate ruling two years ago," Finch said. Code enforcement records also show that that day after Carlson's ruling, an anonymous complaint came in about the barking. "I can understand if the same neighbor complained again, but the very next day with an anonymous tip, come on. That just sounds fishy to me. We went to three hearings with the magistrate, and it has cost us about $20,000," Finch said. "The taxpayer has paid over $17,000 to enforce this. And all over a $50 fine. It makes no sense." Documents from Finch show that Macbeth has billed the county $17,624.14 for prosecuting the Dawg House in 2008 and 2009. Commissioners were also amazed that the case was still ongoing. "We have had no updates about this," said Commissioner Barbara Stewart. "We didn't give permission to do this," Stewart added. "Macbeth has no permission to bill the taxpayer for this. He is spending a lot of taxpayer dollars on this for some reason," Finch said. "We have to stop this madness," said County Commissioner Guy Maxcy about the ongoing case. Commissioners directed Macbeth to stop pursuing the case for now, and opted to hold a workshop on Oct. 19 to discuss the ordinance changes.

Afree ticket giveaway seemed a pretty simple, if not gracious and or desperate, act. And yet, the more you think about it, the more complicated it becomes. Struggling to draw fans in throughout a season that sees the Rays fighting for the best record in all of baseball, Tampa Bay management opened the floodgates Wednesday night by giving away 20,000 free tickets to the game against Baltimore. The first game of the series was a potential playoff-clinching game, which drew a paltry 12,446 fans. Much was made of that on the ESPN talk shows, more notably, Rays stars Evan Longoria and David Price speaking out about the embarrassment of being a playoff contender and playing to such an apathetic fan base. That seemed to light somewhat of a fire among the masses as 5,000 more fans showed up to Tuesday night's game. Though, considering the apathy, maybe Rays fans had been unaware that the ir team was about to sew up a playoff spot. With their slot secured with Tuesday's win, management opened the doors for those willing to make the trip and be allowed in for free. My first thought was that it probably wouldn't have much effect, but tha t whatever effect it did hav e would be a bit uncomfort able for all concerned. Imagine if you're a die hard fan who has paid yo ur way into as many games a s Special to the News-SunOn Saturday, Sept. 25 was g ame number six for the S ebring Youth Football assoc iation. The Sebring Blue Streaks p layed at home this weekend a t the Highlands County S ports Complex against the B artow Yellow Jackets. Each game is critical to d etermine who will make the p layoffs and those possible c ontenders are buzzing about w ho will make the cut. The teams are working hard a nd fighting every step of the w ay in hopes they have teams i n the playoffs to represent S ebring Youth Football. Games started off at 9 a.m. w ith the Flag team, coached b y Chris King, taking on B artow. Sebring came out strong, m oving their way down the f ield to score early in the g ame. The Streaks put up a great f ight, but Bartow's offense w as just a bit too much in the 2 0-13 loss. This brings this flag team t o a 2-4 records and puts t hem tied for third place. Coach King was disappointed with the loss, but he was too happy about the birth of his baby girl Amelia, born the day before the game. Congratulations to Chris and Heather King from SYF! The Mitey Mite team, coached by Carlos Cardoso, played the most offensivelydominant game of their season. Landon Campbell made key blocks in the backfield while Pyshon Mathis and Willis "Scooter" McGuire both made their way to the end zone with a touchdown. But this offense kept on SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Friday, October 1, 2010 Page 3BHistory This series dates back to 1928,with Avon Park winning 18-0 back in those leather-helmet days.The series has slanted more the Wildcats ways over the years,with Hardee holding a 4314-1 overall record against the Red Devils.Avon Park picked up a big win over a ranked Wildcat squad three seasons ago,but Hardee has won the last two. Game Notes It has been a down year for the Wildcats as after a Kickoff Classic win over Lake Placid,Hardee has dropped four straight games. The Avon Park offense seems to be settling in as turnovers decrease. Last W eek Avon Park: Knocked off Cardinal Mooney on the road,19-13. Hardee: Fell at Frostproof by a 21-7 score. Recor ds Avon Park 1-3; Hardee 1-4 Avon Park at HardeeHistory This is the first known meeting between the two schools,given that Agape is a Class 1B school and primarily plays other Christian Academies and Orlando area schools. Game Notes After slowly working freshman running back A.J.Gayle into a greater role in the offense,the Dragons have seen Gayle break out with 88 yards against Avon Park and then 146 against LaBelle last week. All-around spark plug Anthony Gonzalez is back at full strength and contributing mightily after missing the opening two weeks with a shoulder injury. Last W eek Lake Placid: Went on the road to top the Cowboys of LaBelle,20-9. Agape: Lost at home to the Kowboys of Osceola,34-14. Recor ds Lake Placid 2-2; Agape 1-2 Lake Placid vs. Agape Christian News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Ashley Chacon, left, has this shot blocked by Alysha Curtis Tuesday, one of four for the Lady Dragon, in Lake Placid's match-win over the Lady Red Devils to take over second place in the district standings. By DAN HOEHNE firstname.lastname@example.orgLAKE PLACID The stakes were high, with Lake Placid seeking an important win for a number of reasons. First among them was atonement for an earlier loss to their cross-county rivals in Avon Park on Sept. 2. Secondly, with the Devils now being district rivals as well, a win was needed to move up in the standings as the Dragons try to hold on for a shot at their sixth straight district title. With all that in play, it was Lake Placid that came out with the urgency and rode it to a three-game sweep of Avon Park Tuesday night. "We had a great effort tonight," Dragon head coach Linette Wells said. "This was exactly what we practiced for and it was a great, all-around, team effort." On the other side, Lady Devil head coach Stephanie Devlin saw a revisiting of some lingering problems. "That's our inconsistency," she said. "At times there will be moments of brilliance and times where we can't get a serve in. They just didn't come to play tonight and almost seemed to take it for granted since we had already beaten them." Well, Lake Placid is not one to be taken for granted on any night, and they showed that in the opening game. Up 4-2 in the early going, an Olivia Goolsby kill sparked a seven-point run to set the tone for what would be a 25-14 win. Marissa Baldwin stepped up in the win, serving up an ace and two kills before Alysha Curtis got the final Dragon point on one of her team-leading four blocks. And though they didn't seem up to the opener, the suddenness of the loss did seem to wake up the Dev ils as the last two games we re down-to-the-wire thrillers. Looking more focused an d sharp, Avon Park made t he second game a back-an dforth affair with neither tea m able to extend the le ad beyond two points for mu ch of the action. The Dragons did see m ready to pull away after a four-point run made it 20-1 6, but the Devils roared back to take a 21-20 lead on t he strength of three straig ht Ashley Chacon aces. Alana Neilander ti ed things back up with a kill an d another score put Lake Plac id up 22-21, but two points an d a Zakia Hart ace had Avo n Park on the brink with a 2 422 lead. Striving for that fin al point, the Devils were flyin g everywhere, running to t he sidelines, diving to the flo or Lady Dragons sweep to second place See LP, page 3B Courtesy photo Mitey Mite Blue Streak Willis "Scooter" McGuire tries to keep his feet as this would-be tackler vies to bring him down Saturday in Sebring Youth Football action.

d riving as Alvin Tumblin ran i n two touchdowns of his o wn for a score of 26-0. The defense left it all on t he field, with Nate Kirtman r ecovering a fumble in the t hird quarter to ensure the s hutout. This victory puts this team w ith a record of 4 -2 putting t hem in first place. The Senior division, c oached by Bronson Smith, t ook the field and soon took f ull control of the game. The Blue Streaks scored at w ill and gave up very little y ardage to the Yellow Jackets t o finish off the second win o f the day with a final score o f 38-0, bringing their record t o 3-3 and in second place. The Pee Wee team, c oached by David Jones, p layed an almost flawless f irst half, scoring all of their p oints early and relying on t he defense to shut the Y ellow Jacket's offense d own. This played out to give t hem their second win of the s eason with a final score of 1 9-0, bringing them to a 2-4 r ecord and in second place. Coach Duncan and the J unior Blue Streak team have b ecome an exceptional seco nd-half team. At halftime with a score of 0 -0, the team came out in the s econd half, stepped their g ame up a notch and put s ome numbers on the board. The offense took control of the field and scored three touchdowns to give them the final win of the day, 18-0, and bringing their record to 3-3 and tied for second place. The Blue Streaks won four of five games, putting forth an outstanding effort. With the season more than halfway over and only four games left to go, things are really heating up. Those teams that have had to face the Thunderbolts in the past few weeks surely know what "You've been Thunderstruck" means. The Thunderbolts traveled to Lake Wales to take on the Steelers, fully charged up and ready to strike. Starting off with the flag game, Coach Whitehouse and his team took the field with confidence. Immediately, this flag team took control of the game, with Kutter Reid scoring the first touchdown for the day. Davonni Trent and Reid Whitehouse followed with touchdowns of their own, with Whitehouse catching a pass for a two-point conversion. Those Steelers weren't ready to give up so easily, but the Thunderbolt defense wouldn't allow it, stuffing them on a goal-line stand to secure the 28-18 win. These Bolts are now 3-3, and in a third-place tie. The Mitey Mite game was quite exciting with the Thunderbolts and Steelers battling for control of the game. At halftime the score was 13-12 with the Steelers on top. The defense dug in and the offense rallied together to make something happen. Alate Thunder strike for a score made the final margin 18-13, also giving this team a record of 3-3. This puts them in a threeway tie for third place. Next up the Thunderbolt Pee Wee's were motivated, focused and ready to go. The offense was a little sluggish to start but quickly picked up the pace. Quarterback Anthony Rosado handed off the ball to Thurlow Wilkins for a 44yard touchdown early in the game, the first of two touchdowns for Wilkins. Kasey Hawthorne also scored a pair of touchdowns and kicked for an extra point. The offensive line, lead by Rodrigo Nolan and Frank Molina, stood fast for the rest of the game with help from tight ends Teavon King and James Pearson. The defense had a great game, only allowing the Steelers to score six points. Jordan Rose had multiple tackles for loss, along with Colton Williams. Pressure by Camren Spaulding and Devin Brubaker helped JC Crenshaw get his fourth interception of the year. The final score of 26-6 brings their record to 4-2, putting them tied for second place in their division. In the final game of the day, the Junior Thunderbolts took the field determined and focused to take on the Steelers. The offense quickly took control of the field, with Donte Carpenter scoring a touchdown to put the first points on the board. The offense continued to move down the field and put points on the board with touchdowns from CJ Harr is and Bennaum Loculien to take them into halftime wi th a lead of 19-0. The defense, lead by Ake m JnPierre, Tyler Edwards, D J Taylor and Cole Kilgo, w as electrifying and the Steele rs felt it with every tackle an d collision that they endured. Jalen Williams scored t he final touchdown of the day. Thunderstruck with n o points on the board, t he Steelers started waving t he white flag with 3:27 left in the third quarter, giving t he Thunderbolts the final win of the day with a final score of 26-0. This brings their record to 5-1, ranking them in secon d place in their division, ju st one game behind undefeat ed Avon Park.

Similarly, the Dragons w ere trying with all they had t o stave off that final point u ntil they were the ones scori ng it. Afour-point run did just t hat with Lake Placid pulliing o ut the 26-24 win. The same sort of scenario p layed out in the clincher w ith things bouncing around i n the early going. But momentum seemed to b e shifting to Avon Park with T ia Nobles getting a block a nd kill, along with a Hart k ill for a 17-11 lead that grew t o 24-17 and again had the D evils on the brink of e xtending the match. With so much at stake, h owever, Lake Placid pulled t hat momentum back and p ulled the rug out from under Avon Park, scoring eight straight points to take the 2524 shocker. "The girls really fought back and did their jobs," Wells said. "Looking forward, we just have to play our game and work as a team." Now 6-2 in District 9-3A play, the Dragons are all alone in second, behind undefeated McKeel, and were on the road Thursday at Fort Meade. The Devils sit in third at 53 and were also away Thursday with a district match at Tenoroc, looking for some atonement for an early-season loss to the Lady Titans. "The girls know what's at stake," Devlin said. "We've got to come to play and play that way through the end of the season." Continued from 1B LP alone in second you could this season. When Longoria and Price called out the no-shows, you understood and agreed. It was no slam on you, you're one of those that have been supporting the team this was about them So then, for your seasonlong devotion, who does the team then reward? Those no-shows. It's kind of like the bandwagon fan phenomena, only these bandwagoners didn't jump on when the team got good, they got on after the team was good and they could get on for free. Well, it worked, as the team drew 36,973 for Wednesday's game and while I'm sure there were those regulars who scoffed at the freeloaders in attendance, it probably did make for a much livelier ball park experience overall. And the club sure must have enjoyed the extra cash flow. Because you see, even though those extra 20,000 may have gotten into the park free, nothing else was. Parking, hot dogs, beers, T-shirts, programs there were an extra 20,000 customers for all of those purchasable items. Much like why it's so cheap to go to and stay in Las Vegas. They don't need to charge you an arm and a leg to go there, they just want you there to spend your money. The cheaper it is, the more people go and the more money they have to spend. But then, doesn't that make you wonder why more teams don't do that more often? Let's say you're the owner of any number of the smaller market teams around the country. Your stadium will hold as many as, say, 40,000 people, but you struggle to draw even half that. Why not, then, give away 10,000 or more tickets and/or, as was suggested to me just now, make it so all kids under a certain age always get in free? Empty seats will now be filled. And although you didn't get the money from the ticket sales, you're selling that many more hot dogs, Tshirts, etc. Merely having a major league team, contending or not, evidently isn't enough to draw fans. And so it isn't a matter of "If you build it, they will come." It's more like, "If you give away a boatload of free tickets, they will come." And that money they did n't spend on the tickets no w becomes their disposable cash to spend once they ge t there. Aradical new way, perhaps, of looking at how to fill the parks and sell the concessions.

DearPharmacist: What can do to protect myself from catching a cold this year? I have a job that requires me to work seven days a week. I can't miss a day so I don't want to get sick. Last year, I got the flu shot and will probably do so again, however, is there anything more that I can do right now to protect myself? N.W. Decatur, Ill. Answer: Job one is to strengthen your immune system which protects you from pathogens which, by the way, are everywhere! There are bugs'on your skin and all over your body but they don't infect you unless your immune system runs down. The better you take care of yourself before flu season hits, the less likely you'll need antibiotics, cold medications or steroid injections. Best of all, the less likely you are to miss work! Keep a light, healthy diet that is tilted in the direction of healthy foods, and free of refined sugar. Drink herbal tea. Drinking tea is very easy because you can buy commercially prepared teas at any health food store or online. Be careful though, some are just black tea flavored with herbs. You want the real deal, pure 100 percent herbal tea. Instead of buying ready made tea, why not make your own? I actually feel like a mad scientist when I create my tea treats! I study the herbs that I like, and then go to the health food store to buy them in bulk. I choose herbs based on symptoms or health benefits. So for example, if you want vitamin C for its amazing antioxidant power, buy some rose hips. If you want to strengthen your immune system, get elderberry and astragalus and combine those together. Just boil some water and steep about one teaspoon each per cup. It's OK to add a little bit of raw honey, or unrefined agave nectar. If you get a bad cough, why not use marshmallow extract? Marshmallow as in the herb, not the ooey gooey confection. Marshmallow soothes mucous membranes and can put a stop to a dry, hacking cough. For sore throats, choose slippery elm. You should combine herbs in intelligent ways to customize your tea and relieve the misery quicker. Herbal teas nourish your body and warm your soul. Now, as much as I believe in your own ability to take care of yourself when you get a cold, I also think ther e comes a time when you nee d to see your doctor. See your doctor if you experience: Sharp pains in your chest Shortness of breath Coughing up blood or yellow/brown mucus Persistent chills or nig ht sweats Persistent cough along with a fever Use common sense and see your physician because you may need an antibiotic or a breathing inhaler. I'm a big advocate for se lf treatment, but sometimes, enough is enough!Did you know? The FDAjust approved Krystexxa, a prescription drug to treat gout. It's given by injection every two weeks.

Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID The Florida Hospital Heartland Medical Center Lake Placid Foundation Board proudly unveiled its new hospital sign during its September board meeting. Updating the hospital's sign on U.S. 27 is a project the board has been very passionate and concerned about because it felt the previous sign was poorly lit and did not adequately identify the Hospital's presence. "Many would drive past the hospital never realizing it was there because they wouldn't notice the sign," said Administrator Warren Santander. "In its never ending quest to serve its community, the board felt like it was its duty to provide the community with the proper signage and the hospital thanks them for this tremendous effort." The brand new digital LED sign now greets patients and traffic with its mission-driven messages and clear indication of the hospital's entrance, Santander added.

Health Department offers diabetes class Associated PressWASHINGTON S eniors with high drug c osts will soon have more o ptions to help them cope w ith Medicare's prescript ion coverage gap. Reversing a steady d ecline, the number of p rescription plans coveri ng at least some brandn ame drugs in the "doughn ut hole" coverage gap w ill triple next year, from 3 5 to 106. That's accordi ng to an analysis of M edicare data to be r eleased Wednesday by A valere Health, a private r esearch firm. At least two plans cove ring some brand-name d rugs in the gap will be a vailable in every region o f the country. Overall, o ne-third of plans will o ffer gap coverage, up f rom one-fifth this year. S ome only provide generi cs. The plans that cover b rand-name medications i n the gap offer only a limi ted range, usually drugs t o treat chronic illnesses. A nd the enhanced covera ge comes with a higher m onthly premium. Nonetheless, some seni ors may be willing to pay m ore for greater peace of m ind. Some of the most w idely used medications, i ncluding Lipitor for high c holesterol, are not availa ble as generics. "The coverage of g enerics in the gap has b een fairly stable, but t here has been very little c overage of brand-name d rugs," said Bonnie W ashington, an Avalere r esearcher who worked on t he study. "This is the first y ear we have really seen it c ome back." The coverage expansion i s partly the result of prodd ing by Medicare officials t o get private insurers to o ffer more robust plans, W ashington said. Medicare's drug covera ge gap is a cost-control i dea that has never been p opular. In 2011, the gap will s tart after Medicare benef iciaries and their insura nce plan have spent $ 2,840 on medications. After that, seniors are r esponsible for roughly t he next $3,600. That's the doughnut hole." Once total spending r eaches about $6,440, M edicare's catastrophic c overage kicks in and bene ficiaries pay only a small a mount. President Barack O bama's new health care l aw closes the gap by 2 020 through a series of d iscounts. Next year, seni ors get 50 percent off b rand-name drugs in the g ap and a smaller break on g enerics. But Medicare will cont inue to count the full r etail price of medications i n computing the coverage g ap. So that means seniors w ill pay a lot less to get t hrough the doughnut h ole. About 4 million people n ow face the gap largely o n their own. The Avalere study also f ound benefits will i mprove for low-income p eople whose premiums a nd co-payments are cove red by taxpayers. For the f irst time since the drug b enefit was offered in 2 006, 9 million lowi ncome beneficiaries will h ave a bigger number of p lans to pick from. For t hose who want to stick w ith their current plan, c overage will be more stab le. More options for seniors with high drug costs Associated PressFREDERICK, Md.

Special to the News-SunGAINESVILLE Achemical compound made from a type of bacteria discovered in the Florida Keys by a University of Florida pharmacy researcher has shown effectiveness in fighting colon cancer in preclinical experiments. Writing online in the Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics, scientists say the compound known as largazole because it was first found near Key Largo inhibits human cancer cell growth in cultures and rodent models by attacking a class of enzymes involved in the packaging and structure of DNA. More study is needed, but scientists hope that the discovery will lead to new treatments for the roughly 50,000 people struck with colorectal cancer each year in the United States. Researchers are enthusiastic because in addition to having the marine bacteria as a natural source of the chemical, they have been able to synthetically produce the active chemical compound extracted from the bacteria. "It is challenging to develop natural marine products into drug therapies due to what is termed the the supply problem,'" said Hendrik Luesch, Ph.D., an associate professor of medicinal chemistry in the UF College of Pharmacy. "We have solved the supply problem for largazole because it has a relatively simple structure, which has made it easy to reproduce in the lab." The Luesch lab discovered largazole while investigating samples of bacteria from the Florida Keys, publishing the finding in 2008. Known as cyanobacteria, the microbes have evolved to fend off predators or cope with harsh conditions in a marine environment, employing toxins to aid their own survival. The toxins are the compounds chemists such as Luesch wish to isolate and understand in a quest to create drugs that similarly fend off invading cancers in the body. Since the discovery, Luesch's lab determined the compound inhibits enzymes known as histone deacetylases, or HDACs, which are linked to many diseases and are increasingly viewed as promising for cancer therapy. Jiyong Hong, Ph.D., an assistant pr ofessor of chemistry at Duke Universit y, teamed with the UF researchers to chemically reproduce the compound f or further preclinical testing, which ind icates it is a potent inhibitor of canc er cells that has the right properties to reach its intended target without t he toxic side effects of many cancer drug s. "Knowing HDAC is the target th at makes largazole effective means we c an predict good drug properties becau se there are already two anticancer pro ducts on the market that work this way ," said Luesch, who is a member of the U F Shands Cancer Center. Three important aspects make th is marine compound more promising th an other natural products as an effecti ve cancer-fighting drug, Luesch said availability of supply, knowing its mo de of action and the fact that its cellul ar target is already a proven anticancer ta rget known to result in the necessa ry selectivity for cancer cells over norm al cells. Luesch presented the findings Sept. 9 at the Marine Drug Discove ry Symposium in Pohang, South Kore a, and is scheduled in mid-October to pre sent data at the Marine Natural Produc ts Symposium in Phuket, Thailand. T he research will be featured on the cover of November's Journal of Pharmacolog y and Experimental Therapeutics.

Special to the News-SunSEBRING Thousands of animals in many countries will be blessed Monday at what is now called World Animal Day. World Animal Day was founded at an ecologist's convention in Florence, Italy in 1931 as a way of highlighting the plight of endangered species. Oct. 4 was chosen because it is also the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, a Catholic church holiday that is often celebrated with an annual blessing of the pets. Everyone and their pets are invited to become part of the animal blessing at 6 p.m. Monday at Highlands Hammock State Park. The ceremony will celebrate animal life in all its forms and mankind's relationship to the animal kingdom. In addition to the blessing of the pets brought to the event the diverse roles that animals play in our lives, from companions and helpers to the sense of wonder that animals give, will be acknowledged in music and word. Animals of all sizes and types will be blessed in a non denominational, candlelight ceremony. Bring your pets on a leash. This is the third annual Blessing of the Animals sponsored by Heavens Gates Animal Ministries at the state park. The event takes place at the stage set between massive live oak trees in the park's picnic area. The pastors from Unity Church and Emmanuel Church of Christ will give the blessings. Gary Filip and the Lake Placid Montessori Academy Children's Choir will provide the music. The event is free; the park entry fee of $6 per vehicle will be in effect.

By CHRISTYLEMIRE APMovie CriticWhen the Swedish horror film "Let the Right One In" debuted a couple of years ago, it was deservedly hailed as one of the most original vampire tales to come along in a while no small feat, given the bloodsuckers' ubiquity both on the big screen and television. Now, it's been remade as the American thriller "Let Me In" but rest assured, much of what made the first film so special remains intact. Aside from making a few structural tweaks, writerdirector Matt Reeves ("Cloverfield") has stayed extremely faithful in his adaptation, right down to chunks of dialogue, details like the Rubik's Cube the kids play with, and the jungle gym in their courtyard even some camera angles. Reeves also smartly recreated the sense of tension that built in the original film's stillness, and similarly, the quiet moments that allowed the two young characters to forge their bond. On the surface, both films (based on the book by John Ajvide Lindqvist) are about a bullied boy and the 12year-old vampire girl who comes to his rescue. But really, they're about a couple of lonely misfits who are drawn together the sweetness in the way they strengthen each other, and the sadness of the realization that their friendship can't last and Reeves gets that right, too. "Let Me In" is also gory, startling and intense, as you'd expect from any worthwhile vampire story, and the score from Michael Giacchino ("Up") adds to the chilling vibe. Reeves makes the violence more explicit, which wasn't terribly necessary what's merely implied can be even more frightening and the special effects when our hungry young heroine is in full-on attack mode make her movements look jumpy and jerky, which detracts from the film's otherwise realistic approach. Still, the relationship at the film's core always works, with excellent casting choices in Kodi SmitMcPhee as Owen and Chloe Grace Moretz as Abby. Smit-McPhee, who played Viggo Mortensen's son in "The Road," has an innocence about him that makes him a believable underdog; with his wide eyes, lanky frame and slightly eerie disposition, he resembles a young Billy Bob Thornton. And the engaging Moretz, who was such a scene-stealer earlier this year as Hit Girl in "Kick-Ass," shows a different side of her talent here. She brings a sense of regret and melancholy to the character, who's been 12 "for a long time," as she puts it. If it's possible, "Let Me In" actually makes Moretz look less than cute. As in the original, the two meet at night (of course) in the center of their shabby, snow-covered apartment complex. (The action's been moved to Los Alamos, N.M., but it still takes place in the early 80s.) By day, Owen gets beaten up by the tough kids at school while his new neighbor Abby slumbers in her makeshift bathtub tomb. When the sun goes down, they shyly get to know each other the way any awkward preteens would. Meanwhile, Abby's guardian played movingly by Richard Jenkins, as if he were capable of any other kind of performance seeks out sustenance for her, but it's getting harder to find, and with each killing he comes closer to getting caught. Acar crash during one such outing that's been added to the remake is harrowing and expertly staged; alas, Reeves omitted the Swedish film's gnarly cat attack. Still "Let Me In" lands beautifully on its own two feet. www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, October 1, 2010Page 9B FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCHAssociate Reformed Synod319 Poinsettia Avenue Sebring, Florida385-0107Pastor: Darrell A.

We get along great because we respect each other's personal space and business. My problem is my roommate "Michelle" drinks alone in our apartment. She consumes eight to 12 alcoholic beverages in an evening. She does this once a week, usually during the week. The next morning she'll complain that she's "sick" when she has to get up for work, but I know she's hung over. Our other roommate spends little time at our place and doesn't want to speak to her about this, even though he agrees she has a problem. How should I approach Michelle about this? I'm afraid if I say anything she'll think I'm accusing her of being an alcoholic. I want to maintain peace in our home, but I'm worried about her. Any suggestions for how I should handle this? Fearful in Fairborn, Ohio DearFearful: You are right to be concerned about Michelle. If she isn't an alcoholic, she is well on her way to becoming one. From your description, she is bingeing on a regular basis. The way to approach her is to tell her you're worried. Eight to 12 drinks in an evening is a huge amount of alcohol. And if she's going to work hung over, it is already having a negative impact on her job. Offer to attend an AA meeting with Michelle. (They are listed in most telephone directories.) When you get there you'll find pamphlets are available that contain a self-test people can take to determine whether they need help. I know for sure she will have to answer yes to at least one of the questions "Do you wish people would stop nagging you about your drinking?" because by the time you get there, you will have nagged her. DearAbby: I have just become engaged to "Egon," who is from Norway. H e has a great job and is studying t o be a masseur. He tells me often th at he loves me and would never fall for another woman. My problem is my siste r "Ellen." She's happy abou t our engagement, but she keeps asking my fiance fo r lower back and thigh rubs She claims she gets cramp s from being on her feet all day. Well, I'm on my feet al l day and my thighs have never cramped up. What bothers me is Ellen makes embarrassing sounds of pleasure when Egon massages her. I'm upset with her because she constantly asks my fiance for massages, but I also get annoyed with Egon because in a weird way it feels like he's cheating on me. He says it's his job and I'm being silly. What I want to tell my sister is, "Sorry, but those intimate rubdowns belong to me now. Find someone else f or yours!" Abby, am I being unduly jealous or is what she's doing wrong? Rubbed the Wrong W ay in Florid a DearRubbed the Wrong Way: If you are going to marry someone who makes his living as a masseur, you need to understand clearly, in advance, that he will be working on all kinds of clients. This means men and women, some old and saggy, and others who are young, buffed and may be drop-dead gorgeous. Your fiance may enjoy his work but it is work and he will receive compensation for his efforts. If the back and thigh rubs Ellen is reques ting have become so frequent that it's making you uncomfortable, I suggest you and Egon agree that h e shouldn't be giving away what he's selling, and instead he should offer your sister a "family" discount.

Vampire tale Let Me In' a faithful remake Movie Review Let Me In' Rating: R (strong, bloody violence, language, and a brief sexual situation) Running time: 116 minutes Review: (of 4) By JAKECOYLE APMovie CriticIn "Buried," Ryan R eynolds plays a sardine. He may not literally be o ne, but he's packed just as t ightly in an underground coff in. The film opens in darkn ess, flickering to life when P aul Conroy (Reynolds) c omes to, using his Zippo to m ake out his horrific conf ines. The film never strays from t he coffin. It's a 94-minute e xercise in minimalism, the s ort of filmmaking puzzle H itchcock reveled in. Buried" and its Spanish d irector Rodrigo Cortes don't d eserve such a comparison, b ut the film written by C hris Sparling does succ eed as an intriguing if somew hat absurd B-movie. Besides his lighter, Paul h as few tools at his disposal: a cell phone, a flask of alcoh ol, a pencil. The phone gets s ervice (imagine the ad for A T&T: "Five bars when y ou're six feet under") but its p ower is slowly draining just a s Paul's oxygen is. From his desperate calls, w e quickly gather that our s ardine is a contract truck d river in Iraq whose convoy w as ambushed. He's being h eld hostage for ransom by an I raqi who calls him to d emand he raises $5 million i n a matter of hours. Paul tries calling anyone he c an 911, the State D epartment, his company, his f amily but he is mostly s tymied. He's transferred, put o n hold, subjected to pettier c oncerns of legality and fami ly squabbles and managed l ike a public relations probl em. The politics of "Buried" a ren't exactly refined. There's o utrage over bureaucratic i ndifference, but "Buried" w orks better in representing t he more simple frustration of h old music and disinterested r eceptionists. The biggest surprise of Buried" is that it's not pure t orture. Cortes, with director o f photography Eduard Grau, v ary their angles impressivel y. Drama, too, has enough r oom to build from both the o ver-the-phone conflicts and t he more immediate problems o f being buried underground.

Identify p roblem areas in need of treatment, pruning or replacement. Note patchy areas, w here grass has thinned out or is in need of valuable nutrients and appears as l ight green. Also look for weed and pest infestations and overgrown shrubs and t rees, especially those with the potential for interfering with roof and power l ines. Consider a qualified expert, such as TruGreen, to properly gauge your l awn and landscape needs. A erate A eration is a process that mechanically removes small plugs of turf, thatch and s oil from your lawn, leaving small holes in the turf. The plugs scattered on y our lawn break down after a week or two and blend back into the lawn, feedi ng nutrients back to the root system. Aeration opens the soil, letting more w ater and food reach the roots, helping them grow stronger. If your lawn has s ignificant thatch or soil compaction, it should be aerated at least twice a year. P rune A little well-timed pruning goes a long way toward improving your landscape a nd protecting your investment. When pruning your trees and shrubs, TruGreen recommends the following t echniques:Use sharp, high-quality tools that are matched in size to the job so they cut without tearing.Trim small branches up to 1/2 inch in diameter with hand shears.Cut branches up to 1 inch in diameter with loppers.Cut large branches of one to two inches in diameter with a pruning saw.Shear formal hedges with hedge shears.Whattodonowsoyou'll loveyouryardlaterFAMILYFEATURES W hen you've mulched the last of the leaves, your fall lawn care isn't quite done. This transition time from your lawn's active growth to its healthy dormancy is when you need to take some extra care to help prepare it for next year's growth. "For generations, lawns have served as Americans'natural playgrounds," s aid Ben Hamza, Ph.D., director of technical operations at TruGreen, the n ation's largest professional lawn care service. "Because of the annual wear a nd tear lawns receive, homeowners'lawns and landscapes can benefit greatly f rom proper care during the fall as roots continue active growth and store r eserves needed for next spring's growth spurt." Here are the things you need to do now in order to prepare your lawn and y our landscaping for the dormant winter months. Identify problem areas in need of treatment. Well-timed pruning improves yourlandscape.ReplaceFall is the ideal time to seed bare lawn areas and overseed healthy grass to improve lawn thickness and density. After a detailed inspection of your lawn's thinning spots, your TruGreen specialist could recommend one of the following reseeding techniques:Spot Seeding fills in small areas that are thin or infested with weeds.Overseeding generally used for larger areas where the turf is thin, but not bare.Slit Seeding a premium service using a specialized machine to cut slits into the soil and sow turf seeds directly into the slits. Lightly rake an inch of surface soil to remove dead debris and properly prepare the area for seeding. Select a grass seed that is the same type as the grass already growing in your lawn. Lightly apply seed to the soil surface and gently pack to firm the seed into the soil. Apply a light layer of straw or seeding mulch to encourage rapid seed germination. Water lightly until the seed has fully emerged. Do not apply crabgrass preventive to newly seeded areas of your lawn. Mow and MulchHere are some tips on proper mowing technique:Letting grass grow tall and then removing more than 1/3 of the leaf blade is called scalping and can damage the lawn. Mowing grass extremely low can also damage the lawn by cutting into the crowns of the plants.Dull blades can shred grass and cause discoloration at the tips because frayed grass blades lose moisture easily. Sharpen the blades of rotary mowers several times each growing season. Reel type mowers usually only require sharpening once a year, but adjust them to ensure they cut cleanly. Recycle grass clippings and leaf mulch to reduce water loss, lower soil temperatures, and return nutrients to the soil. Plus, you'll save the trouble of bagging and keep clippings out of already-clogged landfills. FeedAgood fall feeding gives roots of lawns, trees and shrubs the energy needed to prepare for a healthy spring green revival. Keep fertilizer on target to prevent run-off and sweep fertilizer granules that may reach pavement back on to your lawn. Use a trained specialist, such as TruGreen, for insect and disease control measures customized to your region to help trees and shrubs thrive. If you fertilize your own lawn, make sure you read and follow the directions on product carefully and sweep all fertilizer granules that may reach pavement back onto your lawn. WaterDuring the fall months, lawns should get around one inch o f water every two to three weeks. Too much water can expos e your lawn to fungus growth when the temperature drops, b ut just enough will keep it healthy before the cold months. Watering evergreen plants in the fall and winter is especial ly important if the weather has been dry and/or windy. It's a good idea to maintain adequate soil moisture until the ground freezes. When you water, be mindful of the water restrictions in your area.

BenefitsofahealthylawnAmong the environmental benefits of a healthy, well-maintained lawn are:A2,500-square-foot lawn produces enough oxygen for a family of four for a year. One acre of grass produces more oxygen per year than one acre of rainforest. Eight healthy front lawns have the cooling effect of 70 tons of air conditioning, which is enough for 16 average homes. Turf's high growth density nearly eliminates run-off in favor of infiltration, which then increases the amount of water entering the soil. Plush lawns trap smoke particles and more than 12 million tons of dust and dirt annually.
