By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRINGThe numbers are dwindling now, as the Greatest Generation disappears into history. Reunions which once drew hundreds of World War II veterans are now attended by as few as five or six. Many groups have disbanded. Those men and women remaining have a new sense of urgency, determined to record their individual stories so their collective record will ensure they and their deeds are not forgotten. This story is one of those. In April of 1944 Jack Cinimo, then in his senior year of high school in Baltimore, went to the Marine Corps recruiting office ready to enlist for service in World War II. He discovered, however, that the Marines expected him to report for training immediately, which meant he would not be able to finish school and graduate. Because he would be the first member of his family to do so, and he valued his education, he turned to the Army instead, which was willing to wait. That is how he wound up serving in the I Company of the 325th Regiment of the 82nd Senior Center open in new homePAGE2ADevils hope to stay hot vs. MinersPREGAMEPRIMER, 1BNEWS-SUN Highlands County's Hometown Newspaper Since 1927 Friday-Saturday, October 15-16, 2010www.newssun.comVolume 91/Number 123 | 50 cents www.newssun .com 079099401001 HighLow 85 55Complete Forecast PAGE 12A Mostly sunny and cooling off Forecast Question: Are you tired of the negative political ads on television?

This Saturday marks the third year the annual event is taking place, and the sound of ooompah, the smell of brats and barbecue coupled with cold beer are quickly becoming a tradition in the City of Charm. "It is something that has been growing on its own every year," said co-organizer Wayne McFarland. "I think its going to stick. We started with just a tent and some food, added a few cars, and then we had 4,000 people show up last year," said Will Bennett, the other half of the lead team on the event. "Because of the response last year, we quickly exceeded the 40 vendor limit we set as a goal. We had to start turning vendors away early because we had too many for the space we planned," Bennett said. The family-oriented event runs from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. on Museum Avenue downtown, and organizers have added a lot of live entertainme nt to the packed venue. "There will be bounce houses f or the kids, live music all day, and a great opportunity for people to com e out and enjoy a day in Avon Park ," said David Greenslade, executi ve director for the Avon Park Chamb er of Commerce, who helps put on t he event. "It is really a community venture ," Greenslade explained. "We have t he Main Street CRA, the Chamber, t he city, the Historical Society, and se veral other groups who work throug hout the year to put this on." Along with the food and fun, a large draw for the crowds is t he chrome.

POLICEBLOTTER Continued on page 7A By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING More than 60 Highlands County residents and seniors gathered at the newly renovated Highlands Senior Center at 3400 Sebring Parkway on Wednesday afternoon. The Senior Center is owned by Bob and Ahn McQueen, who started the organization in March 2006 after the Sun Room was closed. For the last four years, the McQueens had been renting space and moving around the city. "When this club came up for sale in January of this year, I heard about it and we immediately put an offer on it and in March we closed the deal and bought the club," said Bob McQueen. The building had not been remolded for some time and needed much renovation and work. The McQueen's nonprofit organization is unable to receive and funding from the government; all of the work the couple have put into their project has come from their own pockets. The McQueens are currently waiting to hear back about a potential grant for funding to aid with the renovation of their center, but hope to acquire more donations in the meantime. "We are able to use some of the money we get from events; we have to put it back into the renovation we do, but we definitely don't make any money off of anything," said Bob. Ahn McQueen, who is energetic and passionate in every aspect of the organization, works just as hard to make sure that the center is welcoming and exciting for all those who come in. When she wasn't in the kitchen cooking or cleaning, she was out on the floor entertaining the crowd of seniors with her song and dance routines. Wednesday's event included a lunch consisting of baked chicken, green beans, potatoes, salad and a variety of desserts and refreshments. Also included in that day was a brief meeting and speech from Don Elwell, Republican candidate for the District 2 seat on the county commission. Elwell was once himself a volunteer and worked along side the McQueens before they purchased their current building.

Anne Marie Feigner (pronounced FAY-ner) made that statement during a book signing at Sebring's Caddyshack last week. It was a book about the life of Eddie Feigner, who was dubbed the King of Softball. The crowd was not large, but the memories filled the building as people recognized Anne Marie and began to wander over to talk about seeing or playing against Eddie years ago. "Well, we thought we could beat them," said Caddyshack owner Bobby Fulcher when asked what he remembered when he played against Feigner in 1963. "He struck me out twice. And he pretty much struck out everyone," Fulcher said as he pointed out his 50 years of playing softball b y the trophies and memor abilia on the walls. "We were good, but w e were told at the beginnin g that it was about the ente rtainment as well as t he game. And we thought w e could beat them," Fulch er laughed when asked wh at his thoughts were o n Eddie's pitching.

See QUEEN, page 6A Special to the News-SunSEBRING Anewlyformed organization is planning their first major event. The Highlands Liberty Caucus will hold a rally on the historic Circle in downtown Sebring from 10 a.m. until noon on Saturday. All six of the candidates in the running for the three Highlands County Commission seats have been invited to attend. They were asked to set up tables to distribute campaign literature and have one-on-one time with citizens. They each will be allowed 10 minute to address the crowd and cover the issues they deem important. "If we have a race where only one of the candidates shows up, we'll give that person the entire 20 minutes," said Mary Bengston, organizer of the function. In addition to the candidates, there will be music from local singer Kim Ridgeway Osteen and a keynote address from Dr. Fred Jeans. The Highlands Liberty Caucus is a new government watchdog group. The intent is to be a clearinghouse for information for residents who want to look into various aspects of local government. They have regular meetings each Wednesday at noon at Dee's restaurant. "We have people looking into different areas of the county budget, different groups funded by taxpayer money, the county's asphalt plant and even some of the employees," Bengston said. She said the caucus was not a "group" in the traditional sense, but more a gathering of individuals who had varied interests and wanted to share information with others. They have started a website that is designed to raise questions and provide both articles and links that may be of interest and use to the general public. That is located at "We think planning for the county's 2011-2012 budget started on Oct. 1, at the beginning of the current fiscal year," she said. "Our aim is to be ready with facts and statistics to help county commissioners when they get ready next year to decide where to spend our money." Liberty Caucus to hold rally Saturday

T he Obama administration has r aised an important i ssue in looking i nto how to use l egal surveillance a uthority on new t echnologies, such a s social networki ng Web sites and v oice-over-Internet t elephone services.The administration is conc erned that terrorists are m igrating to such services f rom traditional telephones, a nd the new technology doesn 't offer a way for the governm ent to intercept those comm unications. Thus, the admini stration is planning to seek l egislation that would require t hose companies to adapt their t echnology to the needs of law e nforcement. It's a reasonable request, o ne that involves cost but d oesn't dodge existing safeg uards. What remains to be seen is if it is a doable one. It is crucial for law enforcement to be able to keep up with the technology that criminals use. Recent changes in law, for example, allowed law enforcement to seek telephone taps against individuals rather than specific telephones. The reason: Technology had outpaced the law, with suspects sometimes using multiple cell phones. The issue is akin to gathering DNAsamples from criminals instead of merely taking fingerprints. As technology advances, it is crucial for the cops to keep up. Thus, the administration's request. The problem is, these systems weren't built with that need in mind. In some cases, such as the social networking site Facebook, the technology was an outgrowth of the idea of a college student. Adding in a path for law enforcement could be very expensive and could stifle competition from others who think they have a better idea. Those, too, are serious issues, but they can't trump the legitimate needs of law enforcement in an age when we know a few people can murder thousands in a single blow. The administration should be discussing this with experts in the field, including representatives of the businesses that would be affected. With effort, that could make the imposition of a law smoother and more effective. Americans, of course, have learned to be wary of government overreaching. The Bush administration sought, and received, a significant expansion of authority to monitor suspicious activity, only to abuse the power. The Obama administration is talking about how it can effectively monitor social networking sites legally with court oversight. But that doesn't mean that people in this or future administrations won't overstep their authority. An expansion of the law will necessarily require some degree of trust, but it should also include an ability to watch the watchers. Oversight will be necessary. An editorial from the Buffalo (N.Y.)

BUSINESS OFFICEJANET EMERSONExt. One of the most misunderstood areas in the modern world is the cyber domain. There are lots of articles proclaiming to understand the domain, but few which explain its complexity. Afew principles: Cyberspace is a domain that cannot be fully protected without blocking the ability to operate in it. Unlike air and space, there are bad guys, criminals, teenagers, hackers, and friendlies operating in the domain. Protecting cyberspace cannot be assured. Big walls can't be built to keep everyone out. Coexistence is a requirement. What most companies and the United States government do is reduce the risk and raise the cost of attacks. Everyone uses the domain. Even if you think you don't, others that you depend upon do. Power companies route electricity, natural gas, and oil over the net. Cell phones operate using the domain. GPS satellites are flown and provide signals over the domain. Spy satellites keep watch on our enemies and pass data through the domain. Unmanned aerial aircraft are flown using the domain. Supply systems for grocery stores, clothing manufacturers, and just about every industry uses the net. All credit card purchases are carried over the net. All of these signals listed above can be jammed, spoofed, hacked, or have service denied. Depending on the defenses and the sophistication of the user, it can be simple or complex to do so. There are few policies which regulate cyberspace. There are no international agreements on what constitutes an attack; what permissible responses can be; no laws which permit the U.S. to "take down" terrorist Web sites; and few rules on money flows over the net. The term: "The Wild West" comes to mind when considering cyberspace. The Department of Homeland Security (not the U.S. military) is responsible for defending America from an attack but cannot do the job. Instead it is up to companies, individuals, and organizations to "protect" their own networks, and as mentioned above, it can't be completely done. Protecting military, government, and commercial networks will require increased cooperation between the private sector, DOD, DHS, and other government agencies and a heavy dose of leadership from the Administration. Both China and Russia are developing robust national cyber attack capabilities. The latter has used them against Estonia and Georgia. Even small countries such as North Korea have capabilities against critical U.S. systems. To be successful in cyberspace, each organization, entity, company, indus try, and government must develop ways to "work around" outages on the net. Some of the work-arounds require us to revert to more "primitive" ways of doing business. For example, carrying cash for purchases an d maps for navigation. What should be done? W e need a full-court press acro ss a range of policy decisions. First priority should be to protect critical infrastructur e code for those functions o n which our security and wel lbeing reside. To do this wil l require a public-private par tnership to allocate resource s; build understanding; and share ideas. Banks, hospitals, utilities, internet nodes telecons, and other control mechanisms (such as traffic signals) should be our areas of first focus. Secondly, we have to get international agreements on what constitutes an attack, what proportional response s should be available to nations; what countries agr ee to do to offenders; what crimes will be prosecuted; what extradition rules will be in effect; and how the Geneva Conventions will b e applied. Thirdly, intra-governmen tal policies should be estab lished. Congress should add cyberspace responsibilities to each of the missions of the military Services. Realistic intra-governmenta l exercises should be conduc ted to identify vulnerabilitie s, work-arounds, and consequence management action s. Congress should be a partn er in these exercises, as shoul d the U.S. public. Fourthly, we need to fin d a way to raise the stakes fo r someone who might attack us. Deterrence works well i n both nuclear and conventio nal domains. It will also be effective in cyberspace. Finally, tools to attribute the locations of attacks should be developed. We have to hold so-called "pas s through" countries at least partially responsible for damages or attack to done t o our networks. Defending the cyber domain will take time, atten tion, and money, but this is a cost that must be paid. The next step is to tell Congress to get the financia l resources into the hands of the Air Force, so that Cyberspace Warfare can be successfully managed and adequately controlled again st the "bad" guys.

Mike s tands for everything that this county, s tate and country needs. Lower taxes, l imited government and private sector j ob creation is what we need to put this c ounty back on tract. Mike Barry is what we need; a small b usinessman who understands the reckl ess spending and corruption in this c ounty. I love Mike and so should you. David Bland Sebring Richie will consider needs of all E ditor: Election Day, Nov. 2nd is fast a pproaching. Voting is one of the most v aluable tools we have and enables us to s elect individuals that we believe will b est represent the interests of all the p eople. I am writing this letter to ask the v oters of Highlands County to elect Jack R ichie as commisioner representing D istrict 4, because I believe that he will n ot only bring a fresh approach to the b oard of commissioners, but will truly c onsider the needs of all the residents of t his county and not just those of special i nterest groups. Over many years, he has demonstrate d his commitment to the people, by s erving on the boards of the Fire Service T ask Force, the Central Sewer C ommittee, the Affordable Housing A dvisory Committee and the Highlands C ounty Lakes Association to name but a f ew. Jack has been president of the Sun N Lakes of Lake Placid Volunteer Fire D istrict and of the Property Owners of S un 'N Lakes of Lake Placid Recreation D istrict as well as chairman of the H ighlands County Homeowners A ssociation, a position he currently h olds. He is both an avid protector of the e nvironment and a tireless worker. P lease cast your most valuable vote in N ovember for Jack Richie, a proven l eader and dedicated public servant. Marianne Reason Sebring Read amendment before making choice E ditor: Before making a decision regarding O ption 4, please read the amendment to u nderstand what is really being prop osed. Dr. Joni Jones Sebring Richie's the man for this time E ditor: Some of us are becoming weary of t he partisanship that we see in the national and state politics. Fortunately in Highlands County we have a candidate of high quality who will put our interests first. I am particularly impressed with Jack Richie, who is seeking the seat for county commissioner of District 4. In the 10 years that I have known Jack, I have found him to be a dedicated and thoughtful servant in whatever role he has chosen to participate. I had the opportunity to work with him when he served as president of Sun 'N Lakes of Lake Placid Recreation District and as chairman of the Highlands County Homeowners Association. If found him to be a good listener and willing to go that extra mile to insure the best possible results. When the grass needed mowing at the clubhouse, often Jack could be found riding the mower to make sure things were in good shape. We need a commissioner who has a wide variety of hands on experience in boards and committees and is ready to use that experience to help direct our county to reach realistic goals that will prepare us for the county's future needs. The time is right for us to elect Jack Richie into this new role. Philip Rector Lake PlacidNo need for a boy' in officeEditor: Nearly every major newspaper in Florida had endorsed Alex Sink's candidacy for chief financial officer, praising Alex's "impressive qualifications," and extolling her "results-driven demeanor". Today, as the state's elected CFO, Alex oversees approximately 2,000 employees and an annual budget of $200 million in the Department of Financial Services where she puts her business experience and know-how to work as the fiscal and consumer watchdog for the people of Florida. Alex has cracked down on unnecessary spending and has demanded accountability for Florida's contracts. She has set a whole new standard for cutting waste in her own department, and cutting millions in wireless and printing costs. She saved $12 million a year for the state's risk management programs, and is creating greater efficiency, thus saving taxpayers $8 to $10 million a year a step that could save Florida as much as $277 million statewide. The above is the truth not the lies put out by Rick Scott, who has spent $70 million of his own money to buy the governor's office, Scott was dumped by Columbia/HCA's board of directors in 1997 when he was involved in one of the nation's biggest health care fraud scandals. The company settled the Medicaid and Medicare fraud by paying a total of $1.7 billion in fines. Scott has been the target of numerous employment discrimination suits because of his policy of not hiring elderly or overweight applicants. Back in the '90s Scott was a partner of George W. Bush in the Texas Ranger's scam on the citizens of Arlington, Texas for a baseball stadium. Bush and his partners gave them a lowball offer for some very valuable land, when it was rejected Bush arranged for a new government agency, the Arlington Sports Facility Development Authority to condemn it for them. The agency foreclosed the land and paid the owners a very low price, later judged by a jury to be only 1/6th of its actual value. The agency floated bonds, guaranteed and repaid by taxpayers, to finance the purchase. This amounted to a $135 million subsidy for Bush, Scott and partners. Arlington had to impose a new sales tax just to pay for the subsidy Bush and his partners received. Now, Scott, unable to find anyone who has a good word for him, has to have his mother vouch for him. She sounds like one of those mothers whose child has committed some heinous crime, "he's such a good boy". We need neither a shyster nor a "boy" as governor. Sandy Oleesky Sebring

The emphasis will be repentance and conversion and praying that we will elect wise and virtuous leaders in the upcoming election. Organizers expect similar gatherings to be held in 5,000 locations around the country. There is a long tradition of calling people together in times of crisis to pray the Rosary. In 1571 when the Turks were threatening Italy, the people were called upon to pray the Rosary and the larger Turkish force was decisively defeated. In 1917 three Portuguese children experience several apparitions of Mary, the mother of Jesus. Her message included a request to pray the Rosary for the conversion of Russia.

He faced W illie Mays, Roberto C lemente, Brooks R obertson, Willie M cCovey, Maury Wills and H armon Killebrew, in succ ession. He struck all six out. Eddie's fastest docum ented underhand pitch w as clocked at 104 mph., U nofficially, some records h ave him throwing at 114 m ph. The fastest documented p itch thrown by a major l eague pitcher is 103 mph. But Anne Marie says it is r eally an American story, n ot a sports one. "He went from an orphan t o a king, that is really a s tory about the American D ream," she said to a fan w ho stopped by during the s igning. ADVD of the King and h is performances was proj ected onto the wall behind A nne Marie as she met with f ans, signed autographs, a nd told about her life trave ling with the king. "We were always on the r oad. We entertained more t roops around the world t han did the great Bob H ope, but it was about givi ng something back," she e xplained. Feigner was born in W alla Walla, Wash., Anne M arie told the group, as M yrle Vernon King. He first put his team t ogether in 1946 and took o n all comers, first in the P acific Northwest and then a round the world in charity m atches. "We did a lot of charity w ork, but entertaining the t roops was his favorite t hing to do," Anne Marie s aid. Feigner retired from p itching after suffering a s troke in 2000 but continu ed to tour with his team, a cting as emcee and telling s tories while the team p layed. The King and His Court t ouring team played more than 10,000 softball games in a hundred countries since the late 1940s and achieved widespread fame similar to that of the Harlem Globetrotters. Records about Eddie Feigner's career show 9,743 victories, 141,517 strikeouts, 930 no-hitters and 238 perfect games. The Washington Post described him as "the greatest softball pitcher who ever lived." Some of the strikeouts were pitched from behind his back, or from second base on a major league diamond. Feigner died in February of 2007, but Anne Marie went back on the road this year because she promised to carry on his legacy of charity and entertainment. "He told me to keep the show going. He wanted me to carry on his legacy," she said. She was married to Eddie 10 years, but traveled and played on the team with him a lot longer over the years. "We trained kids, and taught them valuable things about life. That's what the story is about, teaching others about the fun in life," Anne Marie said. Anne Marie announced that she needed some time after Eddie's death, but is now going to start training kids in softball camps all over central Florida, starting right here in Highlands County. "We had a method to training that built the kid's confidence up. That empowers them to do good things, and teaches them they can change the world," she added. "We will train kids for community service, but they are going to have to earn it," Anne Marie said.

Continued from page 1A Oktoberfest set for Saturday in AP A lexander, however, will be s ending representatives. Incumbents and candidates f or Highlands County Board o f Commissioners will be t aking part, as will Hardee C ounty commissioners and S heriff Susan Benton. According to Tri-County H uman Services, here are a f ew hard facts which show h ow costly alcohol and drug a buse are: Each year alcohol abuse c osts Florida $21 billion. T hat is nearly double the a mount of the $12.3 that the b eer industry contributes to F lorida's economy every year Drug abuse costs F lorida over $22 billion a nnually Each year alcohol abuse c auses over 10,000 deaths a nd drug abuse over 4,000. The question, said Charlie N elson, who is with TriC ounty and is one of the o rganizers of the event, is h ow to break the cycle. "How do we to help people w ho are sick, but unsafe?" he a sked. Solutions are urgently n eeded because of the large n umber of crimes which are a lcoholor drug-related. E very year in Florida alone, 6 3,000 people are victims of a n alcohol-related crime. Worse, lacking treatment, m any alcoholics and drug a ddicts are dumped into the p enal system and simply c ycle through over and over. Atypical scenario begins w ith a call to 911, ends in an a rrest, followed by court a ppearances and jail time t ypically 30 days and probation. In many cases the alcoholic or addict loses his or her driver license, which in turn often leads to the loss of a job and lack of funds, which results in a probation violation and further incarceration. It is an endless cycle, with responding law enforcement officers often at risk. "There is overwhelming proof," Nelson said, "that treatment saves money, saves families, helps people get their lives back, and lowers tension in jail." One obstacle to solutions is the fact that Florida ranks 49th in the nation for funding invested in mental health. Fortunately, Nelson said, there is a growing awareness of the complexities of the problem, and a growing willingness to do more, and do it differently. For example there are points in the cycle that are ripe for intervention, and more programs are being made available to prisoners. Nelson urges citizens to come to the event. It is a unique opportunity to learn about the troubling situation that will only grow worse if nothing is done for example, from an estimated 1.7 million substance dependent and abusing adults 50 or older in 2001, it is expected there will be 4.4 million in 2020. It is also a rare chance to speak directly to incumbents and candidates to find out where they stand and well informed they are on the issue.

The only way the ca se stays alive is if Attorn ey General Bill McCollu m separately decides to appeal to the Suprem e Court to keep the ban in place. He would have to do so without the support of t he child welfare agenc y, which is changing i ts forms so adoptive paren ts aren't asked if they' re gay. If McCollum doesn 't appeal, it will end t he three-decade old ban th at was considered t he strictest in the countr y.

Gliders were then thought t o be a more efficient altern ative to paratroopers b ecause men could be delive red in larger numbers and t here was less of a risk that t hey would be separated f rom each other or their e quipment. The gliders, Cinimo said, w ere flimsy, made out of c anvas stretched over woode n frames. Landings were c loser to controlled crashes. E ven small tree stumps, f ences or rocks could upend a glider on landing, causing c asualties. As it happened, he r emained on the ground duri ng combat, his glider exper ience restricted to training. Cinimo shipped out for E urope in December, the j ourney taking two weeks. He discovered to his dism ay that he was susceptible t o disabling sea sickness. At o ne point, he was sure he w as going to die, feeling so p oorly he almost hoped he w ould. The 82nd had been heavil y engaged in the war before C inimo arrived on the scene, t aking part in the North A frican theater and then s torming up Italy. Cinimo joined the fight in B elgium as the 82nd poised f or the march to Berlin. The winter of 1944 was an u nusually cold one in E urope, the weather made f amous for how it complicate d the Battle of the Bulge a n operation in which C inimo took part. Cinimo r emembers the cold, sufferi ng from the after effects of f rost bite to this day. His first taste of combat c ame when he and his squad t ook the right flank in an a ttack on a an occupied t own. "The snow was waist d eep and I was scared to d eath," he said. "All I'd ever h ad flying at me before were b aseballs. "Amachine gun opened f ire right off the bat, the bullets hitting the snow (in front of us) kicking it up so sharp we thought we were hit." While his captain ordered the men to go forward, his sergeant was yelling for them to keep down because movement was impossible in the deep snow. Getting coordinated, his unit pressed forward and took the town. Working their way through France and into Germany, his regiment took the town of Ludwiglust. Two major events occurred while Cinimo and the 82nd were there. Men stumbled upon the Wobbelin concentration camp, which American forces had not known was there. Cinimo was a part of its liberation on May 2, 1945. "It was just devastating," He said. "The smell remains in my mind today. It was frightening to see the bodies piled up, no meat on their bones. The general brought in the town's people who claimed they didn't know what was going on to dig the graves." The other event was the surrender of the German 3rd Army, approximately 200,000 soldiers. "We had to search every soldier individually, and their families," he said. He grinned and added, "That's where many of us got souvenirs, like Luger pistols and watches" At one point in the interview Cinimo shook his head as another memory occurred to him. They had broken through the Siegfried line and were clearing out bunkers. Cinimo and his squad entered one, searched it and didn't see anybody. He was the last to leave. To his surprise, when one of his buddies looked back, he said, "Good job Jack." Looking back himself Cinimo was startled to see four German soldiers with their hands up. "I have no idea where they were hiding," he said. "It was embarrassing. I could have been killed." With Germany defeated and surrender weeks away, the 82nd marched to Berlin where Cinimo spent time as part of the occupation force. He also spent time in Frankfort and was staggered by the destruction. "It was just devastated," he said, "destroyed right to the ground. I heard they had to move eight to 10 miles away to rebuild the city." Cinimo returned to the U.S. still in the army and spent the rest of his enlistment on his regiment's baseball team, playing other regiments in the North Carolina league. He was discharged on July 3, 1946. On July 4th, while walking through a park, he met a pretty young lady named Lorraine, who has been his wife for the past 64 years and so his civilian life began.

Associated Press SAN DIEGO Afederal j udge issued a worldwide i njunction Tuesday stopping e nforcement of the "don't ask, d on't tell" policy, ending the U .S. military's 17-year-old b an on openly gay troops. U.S. District Court Judge V irginia Phillips'landmark r uling was widely cheered by g ay rights organizations that c redited her with getting a ccomplished what President O bama and Washington polit ics could not. U.S. Department of Justice a ttorneys have 60 days to a ppeal. Legal experts say they a re under no legal obligation t o do so and could let Phillips' r uling stand. The federal government is r eviewing the ruling and has n o immediate comment, said T racy Schmaler, spokesman f or the Department of Justice. Phillips declared the law u nconstitutional after a twow eek nonjury trial in federal c ourt in Riverside and said s he would issue a nationwide i njunction. But she asked first f or input from Department of J ustice attorneys and the Log C abin Republicans, the gay r ights group that filed the laws uit in 2004 to stop the ban's e nforcement. The Log Cabin R epublicans asked her for an i mmediate injunction so the p olicy can no longer be used a gainst any U.S. military pers onnel anywhere in the world. "The order represents a complete and total victory for the Log Cabin Republicans and reaffirms the constitutional rights of gays and lesbians in the miltiary for fighting and dying for our country," said Dan Woods, an attorney for the Log Cabin group. Government attorneys objected, saying such an abrupt change might harm military operations in a time of war. They had asked Phillips to limit her ruling to the members of the Log Cabin Republicans, a 19,000-member group that includes current and former military service members. The Department of Justice attorneys also said Congress should decide the issue not her court. Phillips disagreed, saying the law doesn't help military readiness and instead has a "direct and deleterious effect" on the armed services by hurting recruiting during wartime and requiring the discharge of service members with critical skills and training. She said the law violates the free-speech and due process rights of service members after listening to the testimonies of military officers who have been discharged under the policy. Legal experts say the Obama administration could choose to not appeal her ruling to end the ban but Department of Justice attorneys are not likely to stay mum since Obama has made it clear he wants Congress to repeal the policy. "The president has taken a very consistent position here, and that is: 'Look, I will not use my discretion in any way that will step on Congress' ability to be the sole decider about this policy here,'" said Diane H. Mazur, legal codirector of the Palm Center, a think tank at the University of California at Santa Barbara that supports a repeal. Gay rights advocates say they worry they lost a crucial opportunity to change the law when Senate Republicans opposed the defense bill earlier this month because of a "don't ask, don't tell" repeal provision. If Democrats lose seats in the upcoming elections, repealing the ban could prove even more difficult if not impossible next year.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comTwo volleyball matches e nded with similar results T uesday, but there were d efinitively different outl ooks afterward. Though Lake Placid m issed its'chance for a s ixth straight regular season d istrict title in a four-game l oss at McKeel, head coach L inette Wells was enthusia stic about the direction the L ady Dragons are going. "We didn't come out w inners," she said. "But t hey have improved a lot a nd it shows that we are g oing to be a force at the d istrict tournament. "We started out strong, c ommunicated better than e ver and when one of us w as down, another stepped i n and picked up the slack." It showed in the result as L ake Placid took the first g ame by a 25-21 score over t he Lady Wildcats, who h ave yet to lose a match in d istrict play. McKeel answered back w ith a 25-17 win to even t hings up before the D ragons pushed them to the b rink in each of the final t wo games, coming up just s hort on the 25-23 and 272 5 finals. "We still were not consist ent, had a lot of missed serves and our passes were not that great," Wells said. "But we are moving closer and in the right direction." Lake Placid was recently dealt a tough blow when Libero Brittany Collison came up with a back injury, but Laine Weber-Callahan has stepped in. "She's taken over the position at the last minute and did an excellent job," Wells said. "Those are some hard shoes to fill." Marissa Baldwin lead the Dragons with nine kills, Rhoni Gavagni dished out 17 assists and WeberCallahan totaled 39 digs. The mood in Sebring, however, was decidedly different after the Lady Blue Streaks 3-1 loss to visiting Osceola. While head coach Venessa Sinness had been seeing gradual and consistent improvement from her young squad during the first half of the season, the team seems to have taken a step back in recent weeks. "From an athletic standpoint, this is the most athletic group of 12 girls I've ever had here," she said. "But the consistency isn't there, they're not playing well as a team. "It's like they're too focused, focusing on just the ball and just on what they need to do," Sinness continued. "They need to broaden that focus, step back and be aware of what their teammates are doing, what the other team is doing." As evidence of the inconsistency, after two losses to SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Friday, October 15, 2010 Page 4BGame Notes Perenial power Fort Meade is currently the number one ranked team in the state in Class 1A.

"We are very proud both t he boys and girls team today a fter almost two weeks witho ut a swim meet," head coach T om Creel said. "They s howed the coaching staff the results of their intensive training and preformed well. Many swimmers achieved their goal times and everyone else is very close to reaching there target times."

o pen the match, by 25-18 and 2 5-19 scores, the Streaks c ame out and cruised to a 251 4 win in game three. "That's what my team d oes," Sinness said. "They p lay up to that level every o nce in a while." But then it was down a l evel as the Lady Kowboys t ook the clincher by a 25-15 s core. "It's strange because what w e need to be working on n ow is team bonding," S inness said. "I never would h ave thought that that would b e an issue at this stage of the s eason." The third match of the n ight saw the Lady Red D evils cruise past the M ulberry Panthers in three s traight, giving themselves a s hot at moving up in the dist rict standings. Ashley Chacon led the L ady Devils to a 25-21, 252 0, 25-22 victory with 12 a ces, and a top-spin serve t hat could not be returned. "I kept telling them to find the hole,'" head coach S tephanie Devlin said. Ashley really hits the ball w ell, and when she started z eroing in on their weak s pots with her top spin, it r eally made a difference." "We have had our ups and d owns, but everyone in this d istrict is pretty evenly m atched right now, and our c hances could go either way," Devlin said. All three county teams closed out their district schedules Thursday with the Dragons at Frostproof, the Streaks hosting Ridge and Avon Park squaring off with McKeel at home in the quest for a second-place finish. Sebring heads to Lake Placid Monday for a match before the Streaks and Lady Devils meet Thursday in Avon Park to close out the regular season.

Velazquez hit the 200 point mark to win the one-meter dive before Waller and Smit took wins in the 100 Butterfly. The 100 Free went to Cummings and WeberCallahan and Taylor Allcorn earned a Dragon win in the 500 Free.

The strong Devil offense t ook control of the game e arly with the Thunderbolts s truggling to move down the f ield. The speed of the offense w as just too much for the S ebring defense, resulting in a loss with a score of 35-8 The Mitey Mite game was q uite exciting with Coach H awthorne and his T hunderbolts against the seco nd undefeated APteam of t he day taking the field. Early on, the speed and a gility of this Avon Park o ffense was apparent with the d efense struggling to shut t hem down thus ending in a 3 5-0 loss for the mitey mites. Next up, the Thunderbolt P ee Wee team were motivate d, focused and ready to go. The Thunderbolt offense q uickly made an early statem ent in the game by moving q uickly down the field to s core the first touchdown of t he game and they did not s top there. Offensively, the T hunderbolts controlled this game and defensively shut down Avon Park, only allowing one score for the day and giving the Bolts the win with a score of 26-6. The final game of the day saw the second place Junior Thunderbolts take the field determined and focused to take on the division leading Red Devils. The Thunderbolts offense struggled early on and that quickly gave Avon Park the first score of the game. The defense of the Bolts dug in to try and contain the speed of the Red Devils offense but were unable to shut them down. Missed tackles and some questionable calls by the referees led to a halftime score of 25-0. In the second half, the Thunderbolt defense shut down the APoffense not allowing any more points on the board. But the offense continued to struggle to make it to the endzone, ending in a bittersweet loss for this junior team. Congratulations to Coach Hooks and the Pee Wee team for bringing home the "W" for the Thunderbolts this week. The Sebring Blue Streaks traveled to Wauchula to play the Hardee Wildcats. The Streaks won three out of five games that day but due to some unforeseen conditions and as directed by the MFFCC associaiton, the Blue Streaks were awarded wins for the day due to forfeiture reasons On Saturday, Oct. 16, the Thunderbolts will be at home to play the Frostproof Dawgs and the Blue Streaks are off to Arcadia to play the Desoto Bulldogs for a competitive day of football starting at 9 a.m. Good Luck to all Blue Streak and Thunderbolt teams as they try and bring home more wins.

It gets real e xpensive, especially at this t ime of year. T.A., Tulsa, Okla. Answer: My customers u sed to joke and say it was t he high cost of living. H ere are my tips about how t o save some money at the p harmacy: 1. Buy generic prescript ions. This could save up to $ 400 a month, depending o n the drug. Generics are s upposed to be manufact ured to the same exact s tandards as brand name d rugs, but they don't rack u p the same expensive r esearch, development and a dvertising costs. 2. Ask your doctor for s amples. It's a free way to t ry your medication and see i f it works before you make a large non-refundable i nvestment at the pharmacy. P hysicians are busy and o ften forget to offer samp les, but if you ask, and t hey have one, you'll get it. D on't be shy. 3. Take an older medicat ion. Older drugs have g eneric equivalents availa ble for them, just ask your p hysician to write a pres cription for a medication t hat has been out for at l east 10 years. Also, newer d rugs are not necessarily a ny better, and besides, t heir track record of safety i sn't established like the old d rugs. 4. Buy a pill splitter and c ut pills in half. First ask y our doctor if he can pres cribe your medication in t he double strength. For e xample, if you normally t ake 10 mg, ask your doctor t o write the script for 20 mg. The pharmacist does not split pills, you do this yourself at home and keep in mind, it requires good eyesight. The beauty is that you get double the bang for your buck. Caution folks: Controlled or extended release medications should never be split. 5. Shop for price. I hardly ever suggesting leaving your regular pharmacy because they have your entire drug profile on the computer so you are safer when it comes to potential interactions. That said, some chains offer a 30-day supply for four dollars and a 90-day supply for $10 for maintenance medications and this saves money. 6. Use a loyalty card. They scan your card when you check out and not only reward you with cash back every month or quarter. You get something like a dollar back for every prescription you buy and discounts for cosmetics, groceries. OTC meds and household items. It's a free card at the pharmacy, just ask. 7. Buy OTC products when possible. Sometimes you get a prescription for a medication, but its sister' drug is available over-thecounter for a fraction of the price. Ask the pharmacist if your new, pricey prescription has a relative'that is sold OTC. You can do this entirely on your own, but I always prefer that you get your doctor's blessings for the switcheroo.Did you know?The dietary supplement called "inositol hexaniacinate" is a niacin derivative and it acts like an antidepressant.

As most consumers can a ttest, a trip to the grocery s tore these days includes a c onfusing blast of messages o n food labels. Many compan ies highlight a food's benef icial ingredients or lack o f an unhealthy ingredient o n the front of the item and l eave the bad news for the g overnment-mandated nutrit ion label on the back. "As Americans grapple w ith increasing rates of serio us health problems connecte d to their diets, it's import ant that the nutritional inform ation they receive is clear, c onsistent and well-grounded i n nutrition science," said E llen Wartella, a psychology p rofessor at Northwestern U niversity who chaired the c ommittee that prepared the study for the prestigious Institute of Medicine. The study was released Wednesday. The committee said calories, saturated fat, trans fat and sodium are overconsumed and most associated with diet-related health problems in the United States, including heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and some cancers. The panel also said it makes sense to include portion sizes on the front of packages to help consumers understand how much should be eaten. The panel studied an array of ratings systems used on food packaging many created by the companies themselves. The symbols are not regulated, though the Food and Drug Administration has warned food manufacturers that the agency will crack down on inaccurate food labeling. Those government standards are not yet developed, however, and it is unclear when they will be. The panel said these mixed messages on the front of food items are confusing consumers and noted that questions have been raised about the science behind them. The Institute of Medicine, which is part of the National Academies, an independent organization chartered by Congress to advise the government on scientific matters, looked at the labels as part of a larger study for the Centers for Disease Control. The committee will make stronger recommendations in a future report on the issue and assess whether the FDA should have a standardized system for the front of food packages. The panel said that given limited space on the package fronts, it isn't necessary for ratings systems to focus on other measurements of cholesterol, fiber, added sugars or vitamins. Some nutrition experts have said that added sugars should be listed on the front of package, but the committee said that highlighting calories addresses that concern.

By MIKE STOBBE APMedical WriterATLANTA U.S. H ispanics outlive whites by m ore than two years and b lacks by more than seven, a ccording to the governm ent's first calculation of H ispanic life expectancy. The startling report r eleased Wednesday is the s trongest evidence yet of the Hispanic paradox" long l ife expectancy for a populat ion that has a large share of p oor, undereducated memb ers. Aleading theory is that H ispanics who manage to i mmigrate to the U.S. are a mong the healthiest from t heir countries. AHispanic born in 2006 c ould expect to live about 80 y ears and seven months, the g overnment estimates. Life e xpectancy for a white is a bout 78, and for a black, just s hy of 73 years. Until recently, federal r esearchers didn't calculate l ife expectancy for Hispanics a s a separate group; they w ere included among the b lack and white populations. T he report is based on death c ertificates. By breaking out the l onger-living Hispanics, the l ife expectancies for nonH ispanic whites and blacks b oth declined slightly, said t he report's author, Elizabeth A rias of the Centers for D isease Control and P revention. An estimated 40 percent of the U.S. Hispanic population are people born in other countries who immigrated here, and in some cases they arrived after arduous journeys to do taxing manual labor. It takes a fit person to accomplish that, suggesting that the United States is gaining some of the healthiest people born in Mexico and other countries, said Dr. Peter Muennig, an assistant professor at Columbia University's school of public health who has studied life expectancy in different countries. The CDC's National Center for Health Statistics released the new report Wednesday. By LAURAN NEERGAARD APMedical WriterWASHINGTON When h er stroke hit, Edna Wooten s omehow stopped her car. T hen her grown daughter i gnored her slurred protests a nd raced her to the hospital in time for a drug to diss olve the blood clot causing h er stroke. Wooten was lucky: Too f ew stroke sufferers get that c lot-busting treatment, espec ially black and Hispanic p atients who are at highest r isk of having a stroke and a lso may be particularly hesi tant to seek fast care. New research is targeting t hose underserved populat ions to better spread the w ord that "time is brain" t he faster you move the more b rain you save. "We basically scare people s o much about stroke, it m otivates them to denial," s ays Dr. Lewis Morganstern o f the University of M ichigan, an expert on s troke disparities. "What we h aven't done a good job of is t elling people there is an e ffective treatment, that peop le are in control of their own d estiny." That was the message s troke educator Shauna St. C lair of Georgetown U niversity took to a senior c enter in a predominantly b lack neighborhood in the n ation's capital last week, p art of a project funded by t he National Institutes of H ealth. Most strokes are like a c logged pipe, St. Clair e xplained: Break up the clog a nd blood can resume feedi ng starving brain cells on the o ther side, which is what h appened when Wooten, 61, w as treated at a nearby hospit al. "Damaged brain cells we c an fix. That's why we want you to get treatment as soon as possible," St. Clair told the rapt group. "If they stay damaged, they die." About 795,000 Americans have a stroke every year. It is the nation's leading cause of disability and the No. 3 killer. Symptoms include: sudden numbness or weakness in the face, arm or leg, especially on one side; sudden trouble speaking or understanding speech, seeing or walking; a sudden supersevere headache. While some strokes are caused by bleeding in the brain, the vast majority are ischemic strokes, the clot kind that the drug TPAcan help treat but only if it's given within a few hours of the first symptom. Yet 14 years after TPAhit the market, overall only about 5 percent of U.S. patients get it. That's partly due to problems within the health care system but also partly because only about a third of stroke sufferers get to the hospital in time for testing to tell if they're a good candidate. Everyone needs to know to act fast if they experience or witness stroke symptoms. The new research comes because African-Americans have strokes at twice the rate of whites and are more likely to die. Hispanics are at increased risk of stroke as well. Worse, both populations tend to have strokes at much younger ages than whites. Georgetown researchers tracked ischemic strokes for a year in Washington, and found black patients received TPAless often than whites in part because of slower hospital arrival despite community surveys that found widespread knowledge about stroke symptoms. "No, you can't wait to see if your symptoms go away," says Dr. Chelsea Kidwell, a Georgetown neurologist who heads the project. "No, you should not call your relative or friend. ... You've got to call 911." The findings echo a major study that Morganstern leads in Corpus Christi, Texas, where Mexican-Americans were 40 percent less likely than whites to call 911 for a stroke. The disconnect isn't surprising, says Dr. Walter Koroshetz, deputy director of the NIH's National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. The most common mistake among all populations when feeling a stroke symptom is to go rest. Adding to the confusion are so-called mini-strokes, a TIAor "transient ischemic attack" where an artery is blocked for a few minutes, leaving no permanent damage. But it's a warning sign that a major stroke may be imminent, something prompt care to treat risk factors like high blood pressure might avert. Other studies have found half of people who have a TIAnever tell a health provider. It takes community-specific research to learn what actfast messages work, Morganstern says. His Corpus Christi project recently taught middleschool students to call 911 if they witness someone having stroke symptoms, with hom ework assignments to tea ch their parents, too th us reaching a hard-to-targ et population. Next, the proje ct is designing ways that loc al Catholic churches can he lp with stroke education. In Washington, Kidwell is working with ambulances to bypass the closest hospit al for one of three certifi ed "stroke centers" hospita ls with 24-hour special capab ilities to give TPA. The community educatio n won't just target seniors b ut younger people who may w itness a stroke, like the wom an who told St. Clair she 'd noticed her mother leavin g church looking drunk a loss of balance caused by a stroke. And it will stress happ y endings like Wooten's. S he slept off a TIAtwo wee ks earlier, and credits h er daughter's love of TVhosp ital shows for recognizing t he major stroke. About an hour after gettin g the clot-buster, "it was like it never happened," sa ys Wooten, who says her on ly lingering problem is a slig ht shake when her right han d holds something heavy. "I' m driving my car, I'm messin g with my grandkids. Than k God I'm doing OK." Page 6BNews-SunFriday, October 15, Dont just conceal it. Let us heal it.

Some of us may have ideas that the Christian life should be free of problems. Those of us who choose to follow after Christ wholeheartedly must understand the cost involved and be willing to allow Him to have control in our lives. With allowing Him to accomplish what He chooses through us, we can obtain great victory in Jesus on a daily basis which glorifies the Father. God's word (NKJV) provides several passages to help us understand how this can be accomplished. One important point to consider is that there will be difficulties in life. Jesus told the disciples in John 16:33 ".In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world." This passage of scripture applies to us as well. In the past few articles, I have written about difficulties in life and how our responses should resemble Christ's behavior to give glory and honor to God no matter what we go through. Our natural human tendency is to want be in control of what goes on in our lives. As difficult things occur daily, our flesh wants to react. The following story is an example: Consider yourself to be one who loves God and cares for people. You are on your way to work on Monday morning ready to face the day. As soon as you get there, one of your supervisors gives you a hard time about something pertaining to your job. This was something completely unexpected, and now you are mad, angry, and upset. What is the solution to the problem? The first important step is to look to Christ and focus on His character and how He would respond in the situation. God has placed you in your position for a reason, even if your circumstances and your supervisor are not perfect. Thank God for him/her, and take into consideration what God may be trying to teach you. Your supervisor may or may not be saved. Is it possible that God may want to use you to win your supervisor over to Christ? Remember, you are living to please God, not your supervisor. God shows us this in Ephesians 6:5-8. "Bondservants, be obedient to those who are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in sincerity of heart, as to Christ; not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men, knowing that whatever good anyone does, he will receive the same from the Lord, whether he is a slave or free." Another aspect to consi der is that your supervisor i s a person like you, and he or she may be struggling wit h some of the same things you are even if you are no t aware of it. Ephesians 6:1 013 explains the importanc e of having the armor of Go d on. "Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. P ut on the whole armor of Go d, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenl y places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand." The story given is only one example. However, th e same principles using Ephesians 6:5-8 and Ephesians 6:10-13 may be applied on a daily basis in almost any situation. Finally, as you take these two passages into conside ration, another passage to recall is Galatians 2:20. "I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I wh o 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." By depending on God to put these principles into practice, your life in Chris t will be victorious. Leslie Deese is a Sebring resident.

Call 385-6155 She was the most beautiful woman he had e ver seen. He already had three wives but n one compared to Bathsheba. David was the k ing of Israel, the commander in chief of the a rmy, which was still out on battlefield. He k new he shouldn't be looking at Bathsheba. H e would never have seen her if he had been i n his rightful place. Besides, she was a marr ied woman. But he just had to have her. David ordered the woman be brought to h im. She got pregnant. What were they g oing to do? David thought he had the solut ion. He would have her husband put on the f ront lines. When news came of his death, k ing David married Bathsheba. Problem s olved? The prophet Nathan went to David and t old him a story about two men in the same c ity one rich, the other poor. The rich man h ad many flocks of sheep and herds of catt le. The poor man only had one little lamb, w hich he treated as a treasured pet and memb er of the family. Nathan told David a s tranger came to town to visit the rich man. T he rich man could have taken an animal f rom his own flocks or herds and butchered i t for dinner, but instead went and took the o ne little lamb from the poor man. David was enraged and demanded that the rich man be put to death after giving the poor man four times more than what was taken. Nathan pointed his finger in king David's face and said, "You are the rich man in the story." David repented on his face before God. He knew he was guilty. God spared David's life but the baby Bathsheba was carrying died at childbirth. Later David's own sons tried to have him killed so they could take over the kingship. His life from then on was filled with tragedy. He left a legacy of bitter rivalry in his family, anger and total lack of moral fiber. The things you say and do today will have a lasting impact on those you love. What legacy will you leave your family? Contact Aleta Kay at What legacy will you leave?

Each piece is created by hand, never factory produced or rushed to meet quotas. Always, these crafts guilds and leaders abide by Fair Trade Federation guidelines that specify fair wages and humane, voluntary working conditions for the artisans. This event is a wonderful opportunity to discover authentic, handmade art from renewable resources in remote regions of the world and to learn more about little-known cultures. The event will also feature music from other cultures represented by WorldCrafts artisans, previous WorldCrafts items on display and DVD segments explaining how WorldCrafts operates.

Center Ave € By DAVID GERMAIN APMovie WriterBURBANK, Calif. C lint Eastwood, who turned 8 0 this year, recalls how his l ongtime production designer H enry Bumstead once a nswered a question about g rowing old. Bumstead, who kept worki ng until his death four years a go at 91, replied: "Oh, to be 8 0 again." "I thought, yeah, that's it," E astwood said in an interv iew at the Warner Bros. o ffice he has occupied since 1 976. "When I'm 80, I'll be s aying, Oh, to be 70 again,' o r something like that." The prolific director, who e ntered a career peak in his 7 0s with such films as Million Dollar Baby" and Mystic River," said he aims t o keep working as long as h e's able and gives little t hought to mortality, the subj ect of his new drama Hereafter," which follows t hree characters searching for a nswers about life after d eath. Now that he is 80, how old d oes he feel? "Eighteen," E astwood jokes, before dism issing the age issue with a s hrug. "I don't think too much a bout it. I don't feel any diff erent than I did at 70," E astwood said. "Whatever I f eel internally, now is the b est age for me, because I f eel better now, I guess b ecause I've lived a lot of l ife. I've been able to accomp lish a certain amount of t hings, and I haven't beaten a nybody up doing it. So I'm O K about it. "Physically, I don't know i f can run as hard as I could a t 60 or 70. But I probably c ould. I probably could get c lose." Eastwood thinks back to s hooting 2004's "Million D ollar Baby," which foll owed 1992's "Unforgiven" a s his second Academy A ward winner for best pict ure and director, and how e ach day he and collaborators w ould do dips on the parallel b ars on the set of the boxing d rama. Eastwood said he c ould do more dips than coll eagues 40 or 45 years y ounger. That's not a boast from the s oft-spoken Eastwood, who r ose to fame on TV's Rawhide," became a bigs creen star with "AFistful of D ollars" and "The Good, the B ad and the Ugly" and was a n icon of vigilante justice w ith his "Dirty Harry" m ovies. He's simply a cknowledging the discipline h e knows he possesses to w ork hard and efficiently. That's part of the secret of h is decades-long affiliation w ith Warner Bros., where e xecutives have signed off on s tory angles that don't s cream box office euthanasia in "Million Dollar Baby," child molestation in 2003 best-picture nominee "Mystic River" knowing that Eastwood would bring them an interesting film at a reasonable price, often under budget and ahead of schedule. Though Eastwood's collaborators say he will shoot 10 takes of a scene when needed, he's often content doing a couple of takes and moving on. That efficiency is necessary given the multitasking Eastwood does as director and producer, often composing his own musical scores as he does on "Hereafter," still occasionally acting as he did on 2008's "Gran Torino." And it's what allows him to pound out as many quality films as he does. "Hereafter" is the eighth film he's directed in the last seven years, a stretch that included two World War II epics "Flags of Our Fathers" and best-picture nominee "Letters From Iwo Jima" released just two months apart in 2006. "The way to be 80 years old and still be cranking the way he does is all about managing his energy," said "Hereafter" star Matt Damon, who earned a supportingactor Oscar nomination for Eastwood's "Invictus," which opened last December, just 10 months before the director's latest film. "There really is a system, really is a deep understanding of 60 years of doing it on both sides of the camera," Damon said. "To know when to put your foot on the gas with your crew, and to know when ... everybody rests, recharges their battery a little bit. ... The wisdom that guy has about how to make movies, it makes it really fun to work with him." The director's style surprised "Hereafter" screenwriter Peter Morgan ("The Queen," "Frost/Nixon"), who figured that once Eastwood signed on, they would spend a lot of time polishing loose ends in the script. Instead, Eastwood shot the film as written, saying it was open-ended enough that viewers could "bring 50 percent of themselves to the movie. They're meeting the filmmaker halfway there," said Morgan. "Hereafter" opens with a visceral effects sequence as a French journalist (Cecile de France) has a near-death experience in a tsunami in Indonesia. The film weaves among her search for answers about the afterlife, a similar pursuit by a London boy whose twin brother dies in a traffic accident, and the story of a reluctant American psychic (Damon), who views his ability to connect people with dead loved ones as a curse. Eastwood was attracted to "Hereafter" because it deals with the afterlife in a spiritual manner without turning religious. He attended a variety of churches, mostly Protestant, as a boy but gave up on it early on, disliking the wrathful tone that was preached. "I couldn't believe that God would be a great sadist in the sky, getting pleasure out of, If you screw up, I'm going to bust you, boy,"' Eastwood said. "That's a way of keeping people in line, I guess." He does find Buddhism attractive, "because they don't seem to be as meanspirited, and their idea of God is sort of a heavyset guy who's got a smile on his face, and I thought, hey, that's nice," Eastwood said. "Hereafter" has no easy answers about whether there's an afterlife, and Eastwood himself won't speculate. "I haven't the foggiest idea," Eastwood said. "I suppose the whole basis of religion all throughout history has always been based upon somebody believing or wanting to believe, and maybe it's mankind imposing their will I want to believe there's something after. I want to believe there's no mortality, that you don't just fade away.' "I don't know what I think about it. I probably tend to think, you're here for the time you're here, and you should do the best you can for the time you're here, and appreciate it and move on. That's rather simplistic, but that's where I come out." Eastwood does know where he's going next in his Hollywood life, preparing to shoot "Hoover," a film biography of FBI boss J. Edgar Hoover that stars Leonardo DiCaprio. Though he's sometimes asked to act in others' movies, Eastwood said that's unlikely unless a great part comes along, such as the racist who grows a conscience that he played in "Gran Torino." "But I haven't read many scripts like that," he says. "I'll stay right where I am, behind the camera. I have no burning desire to get up there. But if the right role came along, I could develop the desire to do it." Clint Eastwood ponders mortality with 'Hereafter' Associated PressLOS ANGELES We've let Clint Eastwood take over the Five Most space this week because ... well, because he's Clint Eastwood. What are you gonna do, say no to the man? Actually, Eastwood was kind enough to take a few moments to select his five favorite movies from the dozens he's directed; his latest, "Hereafter," opens this weekend. But because we're feeling so charitable, we let him pick six, listed below alphabetically along with his comments and insights: "Bird" (1988), Eastwood's biopic on jazz legend Charlie Parker: It was a nice story about someone whose musicianship I admired so greatly. It was a good script on the analysis of the self-destructiveness of personality: people who insist on sinking into the abyss. Success, being idolized by other musicians none of it was enough. "Letters From Iwo Jima" (2006), one of two World War II films Eastwood released that year: I was proud of "Letters from Iwo Jima." I got the idea of doing it while doing "Flags of Our Fathers," which is about the American invasion of the island. But the film pointed out what it must have been like to have been one of the defenders of the island to have been there, and been told not to plan on returning home. What a difficult request to make of people. Also, the Japanese soldiers were facing certain annihilation. They never gave up hope. Alot of them would have loved to have been out of the war and home, just like soldiers from any nation. "Million Dollar Baby" (2004), starring Hilary Swank as a boxer and Eastwood as her reluctant trainer: It appealed to me because it was a story regarding family a search for the daughter he never had a relationship with, and the search for the father that was no longer there for her. They were both sort of reticent, and ended up putting themselves through the most emotional test possible, ending with her desire to be euthanized. "Mystic River" (2003), about childhood friends reunited by tragedy in an insular part of Boston: I liked the book and the screenplay by Brian Helgeland. The way sometimes fate deals a bad hand, and it just keeps getting worse and worse, and there is nothing anyone can do. No amount of sa ne advice can stop the train. "The Outlaw Josey Wales" (1976 ), starring Eastwood as a Missouri farmer o ut for revenge after the Civil War: It was t he first Western I had done in some time sin ce the 1960s Leone movies. It came out in t he '70s when the country was restless abo ut Vietnam. It addressed the divisiveness of war, and how it can tear at heart and sou l. But it also dealt with the rejuvenation of a cynic, re-instilling his life with purpos e, and with a surrogate family. "Unforgiven" (1992), with Eastwoo d as a retired gunslinger taking on one la st job: I loved the "Unforgiven" script. Yo u had to get a ways into it before you kne w who was the protagonist and who was t he antagonist. Even the villains, with t he exceptions of the renegade cowboys, h ad good points to their character, and h ad dreams. Little Bill (played by Ge ne Hackman) just wanted a peaceful life. H e believed he was doing the right thing. T he film dealt with issues gun control, an d the struggles people have "within." T he hero went against instinct. It was a very ri ch story, involving loyalty to friends, fami ly and rationalizing deeds. It was a very inte lligent script.

By DAVID GERMAIN APMovie WriterCritics often gripe about the blink-and-you've-missedit frenzy of action sequences in today's Hollywood thrillers. The spy caper "Red" admirably rejects the trend, slowing things down to a digestible pace appropriate for vintage-bordering-ongeriatric heroes Bruce Willis, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and Helen Mirren. Yet despite the impressive cast, which includes MaryLouise Parker, Richard Dreyfuss and Ernest Borgnine, this latest adaptation of a hip graphic novel fails to fill in the spaces between the action with anything terribly interesting. Director Robert Schwentke ("Flightplan," "The Time Traveler's Wife") aims for a mix of action and comedy but never quite delivers on either. The action is OK, though nothing you haven't seen done better a hundred times before. Some of the gunplay becomes interminable, the filmmakers turning buildings and vehicles into Swiss cheese as characters fire off endless rounds of ammo. The laughs are slight and sporadic, sibling screenwriters Jon and Erich Hoeber unable to generate enough clever interplay among the story's band of ex-CIAoperatives targeted for elimination. It's a huge missed opportunity, given Willis' cool-under-fire comic charms and the brilliant co-stars off whom he could have been bouncing better wisecracks. Willis'Frank Moses is a former black-ops maestro put out to pasture, living quietly in retirement when a hit squad shows up at his suburban house to snuff him out. Escaping his assailants, Frank reasons whoever's behind the plot will go after the people he cares about, so he rushes off to protect Sarah (Parker), a federal pensionbenefits worker he's been awkwardly courting by phone. With her gift for playing wily and ditzy at the same time, Parker is the best thing about "Red" as her wideeyed, innocent Sarah longing to escape her office cubicle and have some adventures becomes Frank's gung-ho confederate on a zigzagging trek around the country. Frank gradually reassembles his old team, including wry nursing-home denizen Joe (Freeman), trigger-happy conspiracy theorist Marvin (Malkovich) and classy but deadly Victoria (Mirren). Together, they go up against an ace CIAhitman (Karl Urban, who brings surprising warmth to an underwritten role); his hardhearted agency handler (a badly miscast Rebecca Pidgeon, who's about as menacing as, well, a pigeon); and a ruthless corporate profiteer (Dreyfuss, and who knows what he was thinking when he signed on to play this snarling, unpleasant, thoroughly uninteresting creep). The 93-year-old Borgnine has a couple of pleasant moments as a CIAarchivist, as does Brian Cox as an old Cold War rival of Frank and his team. Julian McMahon is suitably sniveling as the opportunistic vice president. Simply by showing up, Freeman and Mirren bring grace and spirit that their thinly developed characters don't really possess. As the mad dog of the bunch, Malkovich is supposed to be the funny one, but he acts the part of the paranoiac too somberly, his rabid anger a bit too real to draw consistent laughs. Willis does a decent variation on his "Die Hard" act, playing a supremely capable hand in gunfights or car chases but a gawky schoolboy when it comes to romantic relations. Still, there's just not enough "Yippee-ki-yay" to "Red." The heroes may be retirees, but that doesn't mean they can't go about the spy game with a little more youthful abandon.

Their mother is also 23. She became pregnant with her oldest when she was 15. She's a young single mother, unprepared for the full responsibility, so I have stepped in. When they were babies, we would take turns rocking them all night. I take them to the doctor's when they are sick with or without their mom. I helped select which schools they attend. Through the years I have been there every day, waking them in the morning, taking them to school, putting them to bed, etc. I am now being married and have slightly reduced my day-to-day role, although I am still in many ways the "other parent." I get criticized for this all the time. I am constantly being told, "They are not your children. You shouldn't be doing this." Even my future in-laws have said it. I don't know how to respond. I love the children very much, as if they were my own. I can't let them suffer for their mother's numerous mistakes. I'd appreciate any advice you can give me. Godmother of Three in England DearGodmother: May I begin by asking, "Where is their MOTHER?" Where are the grandparents? Three children, no father(s) who is supporting them? You are a caring angel to have stepped in to the extent that you have, but why isn't their mother around to put them to bed at night, wake them in the morning, and see that they get to the doctor when they are so sick they need one? Something is seriously out of kilter. In the not-too-distant future you will have children of your own to care for. Husbands need a certain amount of care and nurturing, too. It will be impossible for you to continue to be as involved as you have been in your godchildren's lives. You are doing the right thing by transitioning away, and you must continue to do so. Much as you love them, your godchildren are their mother's responsibility, and you have already done more than you shoul d have been expected (or asked) to do. DearAbby: My husban d and I had a troubled marriage. He was a good fath er and provider, and I respec ted him for that. But he di d not respect me. He constantly blamed and criticized me for his many emotional problems. Afte r I told him I was leaving him he committed suicide. My problem is, our adu lt children blame me for his death. I don't want to bad mouth their father or tell them the unpleasant detai ls of our marriage, but they don't know the whole story. I have had lots of profe ssional counseling and my kids have had some, but they refuse to attend any more sessions. Should I just continue to do the be st I can and hope they can b e more forgiving as they mature, or should I tell them my side of the story ? Doing The Best I Ca n DearDoing: Your children should have been tol d the whole story while you were together in counseling. If you allow them to continue in their belief th at you caused their father's death, their anger will onl y continue to grow. If possi ble, that important conver sation should be held with the help of a mediator. Because they refuse to see a therapist, I'm recommending your religious adviser.

His good luck instantly b reeds hostility, he says, and it's kind of a justified f eeling because it's just a T witter page." Hits on the Web haven't t ypically transferred well t o TV(see "quarterlife"), b ut Halpern might be an e xception. His Twitter feed, "S--M y Dad Says," amassed a h uge following (now more t han 1.7 million followers) s imply by quotes he r elayed from his 74-yearo ld father, Sam Halpern, a c lassic curmudgeon with a p enchant for expletives. His similarly titled book d ebuted on The New York T imes list of best sellers.

Ratings for "(Bleep) My D ad Says" (the Twitter f eed's title was changed f or the CBS show) have s ince declined each week a nd reviews have been b ad. But the show hopes it h as cast off its novelty l abel and become one of t he few Internet-to-TV s uccess stories. It hasn't been a smooth r ide. The pilot, produced b y Warner Bros., had to be r eshot, and the part of the s on was recast with J onathan Sadowski. The c hanges may have i mproved things, but criti cs were still unimpressed. T he New York Times, for o ne, called it "a bad idea f rom the moment it was a nnounced" and "a wholly g eneric sitcom so divorced f rom its source material t hat you have to pinch y ourself." The show is oddly olds chool in its reliance on s itcom tradition. But to a c ertain extent, the Twitter f eed that started it all was c lassically sitcomish: T here's no more familiar T Vtrope than the crabby f ather. One of the ingredients t hat set Halpern's Twitter f eed apart was its vulgarit y. His father's musings a nd advice are harsh. One o f few examples without a n offensive word: Pressure? Get married w hen you want. Your wedd ing's just one more day i n my life I can't wear s weat pants."

"It was j ust funny to tell my f riends, Look at all these p eople that follow what m y dad says."'

(Bleep) My Dad Says' tries to move past novelty Associated PressNEWYORK Lions Gate is offering to combine its business with MGM in a deal supported by billionaire investor Carl Icahn, who owns stakes in both studios. Lions Gate Entertainment Corp. said Tuesday it has sent a proposal for a combination with financially troubled Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. Lions Gate said the combined company would be owned by its shareholders and by MGM's creditors. These include Icahn. Terms weren't disclosed, though a report in the Los Angeles Times said the deal would give MGM's lenders a 55 percent in the combined company. ICahn said the deal is better than a current proposal to combine MGM with privately held production company Spyglass Entertainment. Icahn has been trying to buy Lions Gate for more than a year but has been rebuffed by the boutique film studio. Icahn's tender offer for Lions Gate worth $7.50 per share expires Oct. 22. It is only valid if the extra shares that the company recently issued to Lions Gate director Mark Rachesky are rescinded or converted into nonvoting stock. In July, Lions Gate issued 16.2 million new common shares to Rachesky, boosting his stake to 28.9 percent, while diluting Icahn's stake to 33.5 percent from 37.9 percent. Lions Gate is based in Vancouver, Canada, though it operates out of Santa Monica, Calif. Its recent film releases include "The Expendables" and "The Last Exorcism." MGM, ridden with more than $4 billion in debt, owns rights to the James Bond movie franchise and is planning to make a two-part movie with Time Warner Inc.'s Warner Bros., based on "The Hobbit" by J.R.R.

Everyone knows these kids and the imaginative beagle, thanks to comic artist Charles Schulz and "Peanuts," which is now 60 years old. Despite the fact that there have not been any new strips since Schulz died Feb. 12, 2000, just hours before his last original Sunday strip appeared in newspapers, the Peanuts gang continues to bring smiles to our faces daily through advertisements, games, greeting cards, video games and the funny pages. "The underlining thing the strip and its message continues to speak to people," said Schulz's widow, Jean Schulz. "Its basic message was one of hope, but also of frustration all the things in life, like unrequited love, when you can't win the baseball game, when you can't kick the football, that we all experience and yet life continues to give us little bits of hope." "Peanuts" ran without interruption for nearly 50 years. Encores of the comic strip appear today in more than 2,200 newspapers in 75 countries and 21 languages. Peanuts Motion Comics can be seen on iTunes, and Jean Schulz said "Peanuts" comics now are accessible on iPads. "Peanuts" animated specials have become seasonal traditions, and thousands of products are available. Phrases such as "security blanket" and "good grief" are a part of the global vernacular. Schulz once described himself as "born to draw comic strips." AMinneapolis native, he was just 2 days old when an uncle nicknamed him "Sparky," after the horse Spark Plug from the "Barney Google" comic strip. Throughout his youth, he and his father shared a Sunday-morning ritual of reading the funnies. After serving in the Army during World War II, Schulz got his first big break in 1947 when he sold a cartoon feature called "Li'l Folks" to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. In 1950, Schulz met with United Feature Syndicate, and on Oct. 2 of that year, "Peanuts," so named by the syndicate, debuted in seven newspapers. Much of his life made its way into the strips. Snoopy's brother, Spike, was named after a dog Schulz had as a child. "Sweet Babboo" was Sally's nickname for Linus, who she peppered with affection for years, much to his annoyance. Jean Schulz said that phrase came from her. "I don't know why, but I had called him my Sweet Babboo, and then, lo and behold, sometime later, years later, it appeared in the comic strip." The Emmyand Peabody Awardwinning "ACharlie Brown Christmas," is still a holiday tradition, years after it first aired on the CBS network on Dec. 9, 1965. More than 30 animated specials have been produced, and Jean Schulz says a new one will be released in 2011. "The feature story is Linus and his blanket-hating grandmother coming to town, and they are all trying to hide the blanket from her," Jean Schulz said. "We think this has some wonderful charming moments and that's what people are looking for, charming moments that move them and that are funny and live up to your own expectations, and the expectations we feel that Sparky would have had for it." Jean Schulz travels around the world as a representative for Sparky, and, in her role as the president of the Board of Directors of the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center, which opened on Aug. 17, 2002, in their hometown of Santa Rosa, Calif. This year, she sat on panels and promoted the 60th anniversary Peanuts book in Japan, China and Italy. Back at home, Jean Schulz said she recently went to her granddaughter's school for an open house, and, right there in the math room, she spied a familiar drawing hanging from the wall. "There were two rows of drawings of all sorts, but there was a Snoopy on the doghouse. It was drawn very crudely, but you could tell it was Snoopy." "Charlie Brown represented hope, and Snoopy represented fantasy living in his own world a world lots of people would like to live in, where you can do your happy dance and not have to have a reason for it." GREATPUMPKINCOUNTDOWN.COM CHARLES SCHULZ "Snoopy represented fantasy ... where you can do your happy dance and not have to havea reason for it." Jean Schulz
