By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Meet PC, a creation of Robotonics of Utah., the same company that makes McGruff costumes. PC is used to teach young children about street safety, and engage older children while teaching safe driving. Ernie Long, a crime prevention officer from Aventura, can't help breaking into a smile just talking about the radio-controlled car which seems to have a personality. That is partly because he has a microphone in his hood, and so can talk to young people. In fact, the voice usually belongs to Long, who interacts with children through the car sounding like Alvin the Chipmunk. "The kids love him," Long said.

Called a "needed service that brings back tremendous returns for the money expended" by Board Chairman Don Bates, Samaritan's Touch states that it strives to "share the love of God through the good news of Jesus Christ by extending his healing ministry to the needy, hurting people in the Highlands County area" on its web site. County Hospital District Board Chairman Selvin McGahee informed the commission that surplus funds were being given to Samaritan's Touch in two grants of $107,000 and $16,000. According to Bates, the funds are ones that are received by the Hospital Board from lease agreements from Highlands Regional Medical Center. Macbeth informed commissioners that county grants to Samaritan's Touch violated the law. "Commissioners, I have to advise you that the proposed grants to the Samaritan's Touch Care Center violates the Florida Constitution," Macbeth said. Public funding of faith-based organizations have been ruled unconstitutional by the Florida Supreme Court, according to Macbeth. Commissioners disagreed with Macbeth's assertions. Samaritan's Touch grant draws legal questions County attorney says it violates state law; commissioners disagree The only people who seem to care about this issue are a bunch of lawyers, and I don't remember asking them to do it.'JEFFCARLSON county commissioner See GRANT, page 5A Follow the News-Sun on www.twitter.com/thenewssun www.facebook.com/newssun and By SAMANTHAGHOLA R sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Th is year's Ag-Venture pr ogram is less than a we ek away and volunteers an d coordinators are workin g non-stop to get tables s et up, tents raised and tic kets sold.

It turns out the streetlights around the Circle were only bolted to the sidewalks and walkways. Because the lights are where pavers will be placed, footers will have to built under each light to stabilize them. Three water taps for irrigation also have to be replaced. The cost for the additional work, including new conduit, will come to more than $13,500. Rob Miller, director of public works, reported to the city council that the original landscape architect's work for the project was less than satisfactory. Parts were not well designed. For example, man y of the planters, or bump ou ts, are too small to contain an ything but hawthorns sho rt stubby bushes that c an become ashtrays and tra sh magnets.

Healthy Living, located at 1016 U.S. 27 South, is hosting the nutritional blood analysis event and urges residents to come and be a part of the event. "We will have technicians here who will be doing the testing. It only takes a few minutes to get results. The only thing that takes overnight analysis is the cholesterol testing; it takes 12 hours," explained Betty Wells, manager of the Healthy Living facility. The facility decided to host the event after hearing only good things about the idea from other testing services. "It sounded like a good opportunity to do something that helps with nutrition wellness. We ran the idea by a few people, and everything seemed on the up and up so we went ahead with it," Wells said. The testing services is a unique blood analysis that demonstrates how eating habits, illnesses, physical activity can all affect the body and blood. The technicians will examine blood and monitor it under a highpowered microscope. The examination will be displayed on a video monitor for clients to see as well. Within the few minutes after the "virtually painless" examination, technicians will be able to tell how diet, exercise, and lifestyles affect different aspects of a person's wellness. "They'll be able to tell you right away if you have iron deficiencies or low vitamins, it's really neat to see," said Wells. The individual blood analysis is $49.95. The technicians and facility are also offering free pH balance testing with no purchase necessary. "Drop-ins are fine. You can make an appointment if you are on a tight schedule or coming by on your lun ch break or something like that. There 's no reason you have to wait," We lls said. Wells explained that Health y Living does not profit from the co st of the analysis. "We don't benefit from it. Th at money isn't for us. The only way w e make money is if people who are to ld if they have low iron or somethin g like that and technicians suggest th ey need certain things and they purcha se it from us," said Wells. The Nutritional Blood Analys is event is a good way to know what is going on with an individual's heal th and wellness. The demonstration is a tool that is designed to help peop le make improvements in their health. "It's a good blood analysis. It's ju st a good opportunity to improve yo ur health," said Wells.

In less than two years, Aldi has opened 42 stores and plans to continue expanding throughout central Florida.

www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, October 22, 2010Page 3A EDITORIAL& OPINION F or all the citizen complaints about g overnment, public s ervants and politic ians, there are still r esponsible, honest a nd creative people w orking hard for u s.Today we single out Julian D eleon, director of public w orks for Avon Park. Since beginning work for t he city on Sept. 28, 2009 D eleon has made a differe nce. In fact, he has been so s uccessful, it seems he has b een here much longer. Using the enterprise fund, D eleon has expanded water i nfrastructure so the city now p rovides service to sub-divis ions outside town limits, c reating new customers and i ncome. Seeing that the city's waste w ater treatment plant was not r unning at full capacity, D eleon has already prepared a dumping station. When new s eptic tank regulations go i nto effect January and septic t ank contents may no longer be sprayed onto fields, private haulers will be able to pay to unload their truck loads of sewage directly into the city's water treatment plant. Another source of revenue for the city. In addition to increasing utility revenues, Deleon actively looks for ways to cut expenses. Arandom testing of 10 meters in the Sebring Ridge area showed every one failed accuracy tests and reported less water use than actually occurred. "We figure we're losing about 14,847 gallons in underreporting in that area. That is approximately $35,991 in lost revenue," he told the city council in January. This summer, Deleon began negotiations with the Avon Park Correctional Institute to use a team of five inmates for a variety of maintenance tasks, including mowing and the repair and cleaning of Dumpster containers, which at the time received no care. With the retirement of an individual in the utilities department, Deleon used the salary to cover the costs of the inmate team replacing one individual with five for the same amount. Now Deleon is looking at beginning a curbside recycling program in about six months. "This is the right thing to do for the environment," he said in announcing the proposed program, "but, further, by removing paper weight from the waste streaming, this will save the city money on our sanitation tipping fees budget," about $45,000 annually. We praise Deleon for his diligence, energy and flexibility. Not only can he think outside the box, but he is practical and farsighted, as well as respected by those who work with him. At a time when cynicism reigns and trust in government hard to find, we need to remember there are treasures out there men and women who actually care and take pride in what they do. It is with gratitude we congratulate Julian Deleon on a job well done.TODAY'SEDITORIALTODAY'SLETTERS 2227 U.S. 27 South Sebring, FL 33870 863-385-6155 NEWSROOMROMONA WASHINGTONPublisher/Executive Editor Ext. 515editor@newssun.com SCOTT DRESSELEditor Ext. 516scott.dressel@newssun.comDAN HOEHNESports Editor Ext. 528daniel.hoehne@newssun.com ADVERTISINGVICKIE JONESExt. 518vickie.jones@newssun.com CIRCULATIONTONY MCCOWANExt. 522anthony.mccowan@newssun.com PRE-PRESSKEN BAREFIELDProduction Coordinator Ext. 594prepress@newssun.com BUSINESS OFFICEJANET EMERSONExt. 596legals@newssun.com Way to go, Julian Deleon If you happen to mention the name Hillary Clinton to my grandmother, she'll pause, lock her jaw and declare, "That womanambitious." That's all she has to say about Clinton because, after all, Granny's polite. Also, the first female Speaker of the House's name is akin to a curse word something you say when you stub your toe. "Ah! #*&% Pelosi!" But if you think Grandma is a Sarah Palin fan, think again. Once, I asked her about Palin she faked a hearing-aid malfunction. Even so, think of where women were when my grandmother was born: Montana holds the honor of electing the first woman, Jeannette Rankin, to the U.S. House of Representatives in 1917, a full three years before the ratification of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote. Rankin is also noted for being the only member of Congress to vote against the U.S. entering WWII (pacifism being a "woman's issue"). Interestingly, Montana also holds the honor of electing only one (think: first AND last) woman to Congress. Yes, in almost a hundred years Montana has elected just one female to represent them in Washington D.C. But if you think that record is shoddy Iowa and Mississippi have never (think: ever) elected a woman as Governor or to the U.S. Congress. Mississippi you can understand. Tell Mississippians (like my grandmother) they're 50 years behind the times, and they'll get mad at you for calling them progressive. But Iowa is a more civically mindful place. America's presidential candidates are vetted in the Iowa Caucuses. If the candidates don't make sense, they don't get past Iowa. Iowa is like our nation's liver cleaning out all the toxins (e.g., Tom Tancredo) before they get on the ballot. Yet locally, Iowans have never once elected a female candidate to represent them in the Governor's mansion or Capitol Hill. Currently, Assistant Attorney General for Iowa Roxanne Conlin is running against incumbent Senator Chuck Grassley. She is 25 points behind in most polls. Presently, 51 percent of the population is female, yet only 17 percent of Congress is female. If the old white men the majority of the Tea Party want "their country" back, look no further than the Halls of Congress: It's 87 percent white and 83 percent male. If Congress got together and misspelled some Nazi laden Mao-heavy picket signs, it would look exactly like every other conservative rally since Obama took office. You know, those folks claimin g not to have a voice in government. Even in the wake of "Mama Grizzlies," a phrase coined to describe a female Republican candidate with a Sarah Palin level of compe tence, USAToday reports the number of women serving in the U.S. Congress could go down for the first time in 30 years. Women have been more likely to vote Democratic, even though feminist author Gloria Feldt (No Excuses: 9 Ways Women Can Change How We Think about Powe r) states, "The Democrats hav e been remiss in recruiting women for office." Still, a majority of female Representatives in Congres s have a "D" next to their names. And it's going to be a bad year for Democrats. So as Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle running against Harry Reid would put it, Congress is about to "man up." Here's the thing about women candidates: they are more interesting to the pres s than their male counterpart s. The media just likes them more. There's an obsession with female candidates' gaffes. The idea that someone denounces the Supreme Court as "activists judges" yet is unable to name one decision with which they disagree like Christine O'Donnell and Sarah Palin before her is noteworthy. "That womanambitious." The year 1992 was dubbed "The Year of the Woman" because four women were elected to the Senate as opposed to the over 30 men who were elected or re-elec ted to the same body. Yes, female candidates may get all the ink but male candidates get all the votes. And now with Mama Grizzlies roaming about women voters know that these female candidates sucking up all the oxygen don't even support tradition al women's issues like repr oductive freedoms, child we lfare laws and social securit y. So ironically if you're for women's issues, you jus t might have to be against women candidates. Which i s getting one step up and a hundred years back.

This faith did not s ound bad until I read the last parag raph: "In Islam, Jesus is honored as a p rophet and messenger of God ... M ohammed, the faith's founder, is r evered as both prophet and the final m essenger of God." I hope your readers can see the diff erence? Jesus is not a prophet He is t he Son of God and He did for our s ins and rose again preparing Heaven f or those who believe. Those who b elieve and follow Christ are C hristians. The Islamic prophet, Mohammed, w as born some 500 years after Jesus C hrist died; Muslims believe that since M ohammed came after Christ, he is the l ast and only one to follow. However, h e didn't die for the sins of the people a nd he is not preparing a place in H eaven for us. He cannot he is not t he same as our loving and powerful G od! Sometimes we all may get in a comf ortable rut in our lives especially in o ur religion ... clearly our own fault. Reading God's Word is not easy; praying with your whole heart is not easy. Working in missions is hard the hours are long; the pay is low, but followers of Christ know that the retirement benefits are "out of this world." I have a request. See what you can do about writing a whole page on Christianity. Give us an equal opportunity to know the common details, denominations, terms and an overview of Christianity, as well; perhaps many have forgotten our roots, our heritage and even our Creator, our Founding Father in Heaven. If this is a Christian nation, let's keep our Christian faith above all other religions and let's know why we believe like we do. Agatha Johnson LoridaTake care of yourselfEditor: Have you been hearing a lot lately "it must be going around" or "it's a bad time of year?" We in the healthcare profession are hearing it about 10 times a day. How many sniffles and sneezes or barky coughs do you hear just going into a public place? It is definately something that seems to be getting peoples'attention. The problem is, it seems to be a vicious circle. I think most of the parents in this county can agree that it's hard not to send your child to school nowadays because these poor kids don't seem to catch any breaks from their teachers. If the kids are out sick, they have a hard time getting their make-up work or having time to do it. My children don't want to miss any school even when they are sick because on top of regular work there is the make-up work that they are worried about. So we resort to sending them to school sick. Plus, there is so much of a demand for us parents to hold on to the jobs that we actually have that we are afraid to maybe take that time off to be with the children. By this time the germs from the kids are probably dormant in our bodies so that we are all passing it to our co-workers. When we get sick, there surely isn't time for us to take off of work and take care of ourselves because those demanding or scarce jobs that we have won't let us. This seems to be especially prevelant to healthcare workers. There still seems to be no such thing as your doctor or nurse being out sick. What it all boils down to is that for all of our various reasons and with the type of commuinty that we live in along with the fast paced world of everyone wanting what they want when they want it there is only one person to look out for you and it is you. Take care of yourselves. At this time of year double up on the vitamin C. Stay away from public places. Wash your hands. Get your flu and pneumonia shots and do not go to the doctor unless you absolutely have to. Angela Long SebringSeptic tank issue is another shaftEditor: I say "hog wash" to this latest scam about septic tank pumping. I just had my septic tank pumped out two months ago. It cost me $185. This is just another scam of our county "God Fathers" to shaft the people out of more money so that they can continue with their pet "pork project" spending. Who dreamed up this latest criminal farce anyway? They all ought to be thrown out of office and get some honest people in office for a change, who are representing the people, not some of their "Good Ol'Boy" friends of theirs. Many of us people who are on Social Security, or limited income, are barely getting by as it is; we can't afford any more of their pet "pork spending." In Communist Russia, the government stole the land from the people and moved them into "Goulogs." In America, the government taxes the people out of their homes, same results. Isn't that what "public housing" is all about? Don H. Streeter Sebring EDITORIALPAGEPOLICYMake sure to sign your letter and include your address and phone number.

By BRIAN SKOLOFF and HARRYR. WEBER Associated Press WritersNEWORLEANS The c rude has stopped gushing a nd coastlines are largely c lear of the thick goo that w ashed ashore for months, b ut the impact of the worst o ffshore oil spill in U.S. hist ory will no doubt linger for y ears. Six months after the April 2 0 Deepwater Horizon explos ion, the environment and e conomy of the entire northe rn Gulf of Mexico region r emain in a state of uncert ainty, with overturned livelih oods, out-of-work fisherm en, reluctant tourists, wides pread emotional anguish and u ntold damage to the sea and i ts shores. It could be years before the s pill's true effects are unders tood. The science is largely s cattered about what the r oughly 200 million gallons o f oil that spewed from BP P LC's blown-out well s ome 170 million gallons of w hich actually spilled into t he Gulf will ultimately m ean for the animals and p lant life that inhabit one of t he world's most diverse bodi es of water. "There are some things t hat are starting to reveal t hemselves already," said S teve Murawski, chief fishe ries scientist for the N ational Oceanic and A tmospheric Administration. But it's going to take a w hile for us to gain some pers pective." Murawski predicted scient ists will be studying the r egion for years, as they have b een doing since 1989's m uch smaller Exxon Valdez s pill in Alaska. "This will be with us for d ecades for sure," he said. The doomsday scenarios f eared during the worst perio d of the gushing well did not p lay themselves out, as much o f the oil is believed to have e vaporated or been dispersed, m arshes have sprung back to l ife and fewer dead animals t han feared have been found. But that good news does n ot mask concerns that the c ountry might be turning its a ttention away prematurely, c onsidering the very real d amage that has been done. "I can honestly say, I g uess, I'm very pessimistic a bout it," said Byron E ncalade, president of the L ouisiana Oystermen A ssociation, whose oyster b eds are all dead or dying. We don't know where we're a t. We don't even have a c omplete assessment of the d amage or how long it's g oing to take to correct it. T his is our life, though. We h ave nowhere else to go." The government has r eopened about 90 percent of G ulf federal waters to fishi ng, and says all seafood c aught in the newly opened a reas is safe to eat. Yet the c ommercial fishing industry r emains in turmoil, suffering from an acute image problem. Loads of shrimp and fish are hauled in, but processors are finding little demand from a wary public. The federal government maintains much of the oil is now gone from the Gulf of Mexico. But independent researchers say they are discovering significant amounts of crude below the sea's surface, including on the ocean floor. They fear the oil that remains could harm species lower down the food chain and affect reproduction rates of fish such as bluefin tuna, which were spawning in the area at the time of the spill. Oil is still buried in the sand on beaches across the coast, and crude continues to plague some of Louisiana's shores. Some marshes of Barataria Bay home to productive shrimp nurseries and oyster beds, and thousands of sea birds and migratory species are still being soiled. A$20 billion BPcompensation fund has so far paid out nearly $1.5 billion to business owners and fishermen along the coast suffering from a summer of lost revenues. But many are still waiting for checks and struggling to pay bills. BPwill be facing billions of dollars in fines once a damage assessment is complete. Meanwhile, the six months since the spill began have brought many changes to the offshore drilling industry. The federal government swiftly imposed new regulations on the business following the spill. It recently lifted a moratorium on deep water drilling in the Gulf, but it could be weeks before rigs that are able to meet the tougher standards can get back to work. The danger of a future catastrophe persists as oil companies continue to drill in deep water even though many measures that could help head off future spills better cap-and-siphon containment systems to choke off leaks, for instance, or more thorough testing and analysis to prevent blowouts are not yet in place.

GULFOILSPILL SIXMONTHSLATER By CAIN BURDEAU Associated Press WriterNEWORLEANS Global warming, rising sea levels, fiercer and more frequent hurricanes and environmental degradation could result in $350 billion in losses over the next 20 years on the Gulf Coast, America's oil and natural gas nerve center, according to a risk assessment released Wednesday by power company Entergy Corp. The analysis of hazards, assets and vulnerabilities including the offshore oil and gas world in the Gulf of Mexico paints a bleak picture for the energy corridor between Texas and Alabama. "Sitting here doing nothing is not a plan that is acceptable," said Wayne Leonard, the chairman and CEO of Entergy, a Fortune 500 power provider based in New Orleans. Entergy is one of the largest nuclear power providers in the United States and an advocate of expanding nuclear power as an alternative to fossil fuels that generate greenhouse gases. Leonard called the report a "call to arms" to the Gulf Coast's governors, policy makers and oil and gas companies to wake up to the threat of climate change and do much more to invest in preparing for a risky future. He said the report showed that losses from hurricanes and other environmental hazards would take a toll on the region's economy. For instance, losses of $350 billion which amounts to rebuilding New Orleans'entire asset base six times would consume about 3 percent of the region 's gross domestic produ ct each year, the report said. "It's a road map for us to adapt to a world we don 't really want to be living i n, but we really may not ha ve a choice," Leonard said. The $4 million study w as done by McKinsey & Company, an econom ic research firm, and Swi ss Re, a company that specia lizes in risk assessment s. The report was presented at a conference on problem s with the world's deltas in New Orleans organized b y America's Wetland, a no nprofit seeking to g et Congress and the Whi te House to restore t he Mississippi River del ta from eroding away. The Entergy stud y focused on climate chang e, hurricanes and subsidenc e, the gradual sinking of coastal lands, a phenom enon particularly bad in Louisiana where the delta is eroding. About 25 squa re miles of the delta is turn ed into open water each year On average, the Gu lf region suffers losses of about $14 billion a year, t he Entergy study found. B ut over the next 20 years, los ses are expected to rise to between $18 billion an d $23 billion a year, depen ding on the severity of glo bal warming. Looking ahead even fu rther, the study said loss es could increase to betwe en $26 billion and $40 billio n a year after 2030 if glob al warming worsens. Of course, losses cou ld be averted by spending te ns of billions of dollars to pr epare for future hazards, t he study said.

This isn't the NFLI grew up with. Not saying I disavow the violence that the league sought a need to deal with more harshly this week. Oh, I loved the big hits. The snot-knockers, the bone-jinglers, the suddenly prone players jolted from the percussionist force of a jarring hit. I adored Walter Payton for the fact that when he was about to get hit, he would himself deliver the jarring blow. All the hubbub about the more strict stance the NFL is taking isn't about those sorts of hits. The rules are already on the books, it's just now about the enforcement of those rules. You go with the "missilelaunch" style of tackling, you get busted a fine, a suspension, whichever and I agree with it whole heartedly. The NFL, football in general, is sold upon the brute force that is doled out. But when watching the "Greatest Hits" videos from back in the day, I wasn't seeing Dick Butkus, Ray Nitschke, Mean Joe Greene or Ronnie Lott diving headlong to deliver a brain blow to the offensive player. I was seeing form tackling delivered with an especially brutal edge. Shoulder pads delivered to the chest or midsection of a player at full force jolting him bodily. If the initial hit and wrap didn't take, well, Butkus would grab what he could and use his grasp to violently whip them around, throw them down. That was my greatest feeling as a youth football player making that big hit. Seeing the running back, wide receiver or quarterback heading toward you, sizing them up, gauging the distance, speed, time and angle needed to square him up, thrusting forward and driving your shoulders, wrapping your arms, right through the middle of him. I have often complained at how poor the tackling is on all levels of football for the last decade or so. So many times I see defenders launch themselves at the ball carrier, only to bounce off and then have the carrier gain another bunch of yards. Whatever happened to driving through the player, wrapping them up and thrusting them to the ground? Apparently, the style of tackling that I learned, that got my juices flowing when I could get that great hit and tackle, stopped being taught at some point. James Harrison now says he may as well retire, since he doesn't know how else to do his job. And while the initial reaction to his statements brought about a chorus of "he's just whining," it brings about that point. He was fined $75,000 for the two "tackles" in last Sunday's game that went against the rules already in place, and cost more now because of the more focus ed attention on head injuries. Both the tackles, from m y perspective, were nothing like the tackling I was taught. Diving forward, arms either at chest level or dow n by his waist literally div ing forward with his helme t the driving force, aimed at the opponents helmet. Say what you will about the offensive player falling down, changing the level o f the helmet anyone who's played football knows that 's a cop out. You're aware of the play ers'position, in flow, and adjust your movements based upon that. If I'm aiming to drill a guy in the chest, I move as he does so I can still do that. And that's why a part of me doesn't necessarily say these men are evil, are too physical and that the League is going soft by enforcing this too strongly What it gets down to is coaching. Special to the News-SunOn Saturday, Oct. 16 the Sebring Thunderbolts played at the Highlands County Sports Complex against the Frostproof Bulldogs. Going into week nine of the season, the Sebring Youth Football teams are nearing the end of the regular season. Each team is looking at the stats and the talk of playoffs is widespread throughout the MFFCC association. Each game day and every "W" that is earned gets them one step closer to getting to the playoffs. Sebring teams are working hard and fighting every step of the way with several potential teams in the playoffs to represent Sebring Youth Football. The day started off with the Thunderbolt Flag team, coached by Kirby Whitehouse, taking the field with the Dawgs. Sebring scored the first touchdown of the game, taking a 6-0 lead, but the Bulldogs followed with a score of their own. But the Thunderbolt defense stayed strong and the offense took control of the game. Several kids Eugene Johnson, Rhett Vaughn, Damian Gonnerville, Houston John and Kutter Reed that had never touched the football before were able to make it to the end zone. Logan Meixner, Aubrey Graham, Colton McManus and Peyton Spencer made the extra points, securing the 42-6 win and bringing their record to 4-5. Next up, the Thunderbolt Mitey-Mite team, coached by Chris Hawthorne, took the field with the Bulldogs determined to regroup after a couple of devastating losses the last two weeks. Quickly, the offense led by Shamar Hawthorne, stepped up the pace to put seven points on the board. The Bulldogs defense was no match for the Thunderbolts and their offense fared no better, with a final score of 26-0 bringing Sebrings'record to 4-5. In what turned out to be the game of the day, the Thunderbolt Pee Wee team, coached by Tim Hooks, took the field with the undefeated Bulldogs for one tough dogfight.. The offense, led by Kasey Hawthorne and Thurlow Wilkins, scored the first touchdown, giving them a 60 lead. But the Bulldogs didn't take this lightly, quickly returning with a score of their own. With two missed field goals, the Thunderbolts went into half time behind 13-12. The second half was quite exciting, Sebring scored again bringing the score to 18-13. With less than two minutes left in the game, the Bulldogs drove down the field and scored, to hand the Bolts a bittersweet loss of 19-18. But even with the loss, Sebrings 5-4 record has them holding a wild card spot in the playoffs. The final game of the day was played by the Thunderbolt Junior team, coached by Cliff Howell. The offense led by Cole Kilgo, quickly drove down the field to score on the opening drive, taking an early 7-0 lead. Sebring's defense was exceptional, with key tackles made by Anthony Healy, Jalen Williams, EJ JnPierre and Kilgo that totally shut the Bulldogs down. The Bulldog defense struggled to stop the Thunderbolt's with Wyatt Kinslow, Akem JnPierre, Donte Carpenter and Nicholas Lynch going in for scores and securing the 32-0 win. This brings their record to 6-3 and clinches a spot in the first round of the pla yoffs The Sebring Blue Strea ks were on the road this we ek to play the Desoto Bulldog s. Chris King and the Stre ak Flag team took on a toug h and playoff bound Deso to Bulldog squad. The traveling took its to ll on the Flag team and, aft er playing two weeks on t he road, the little guys we re tired and worn out. With Desoto having t he home-field advantage an d the momentum througho ut the game, the Streaks we re defeated with a final sco re of 26-0, bringing the ir record to 4-5.

It is the monarch butterfly i n the midst of its amazing a nnual migration south. The migration fascinates s cientists and other naturew atchers. How can a seemingly delic ate butterfly make a 2,500m ile journey across the U nited States, the Gulf of M exico and into central M exico? And how does it, a nd its thousands of compani ons, know where to go and h ow to get there? First, let's look at the m onarch's life cycle. Amonarch butterfly begins l ife as an egg, a tiny dot laid o n the underside of a leaf. During its second stage of l ife, the larval stage or caterp illar, it feeds on its favorite f ood plant, milkweed, and g rows quickly. Its pupa stage, or chrysalis, i s the stage where it transf orms (metamorphoses) into a n adult, the recognizable o range-and-black butterfly w e know as the monarch. What happens next d epends on what time of year t he adult emerges. Adult monarchs that emerge in spring or early summer enjoy a fairly typical butterfly lifespan of 2-5 weeks, during which they feed, mate, lay eggs and die. However, monarchs that emerge in the late summer have more on their agenda migration! These special monarchs may live 7-8 months, making them the longest-lived butterflies. Once they reach Mexico in November, the monarchs roost by the hundreds of thousands on oyamel fir trees. There, they hibernate until March before starting a northward migration. Then they mate, lay eggs and die. Their offspring continue the journey north through the spring and summer. It takes four generations of monarchs to reach the northern United States and southern Canada. It is the offspring of this last group who are destined to repeat the southward migration of their greatgreat-grandparents. Monarchs are the only insects that have such an incredible migration. Fall is the best time to see butterflies in North Florida, and mid-October to midAn incredible journey: the monarch butterfly Marty N.

Scooter Mcguire kept his eyes and ears open and was able to produce two scoring drives. All of the players and parents were very happy with the victory and taking the first place position to move on to the first round of the playoffs. Congratulations Coach Cardoso, great job by you, your staff and the players. The Pee Wee Streaks, coached by David Jones, came out guns a blazin', scoring on the first offensive play and putting up 27 points in the first half. They sputtered a bit in the second half on offense, but the defense was stingy allowing zero points in the second half. Ty Dellop found the end zone twice, along with Danny Cardoso, C.J. Paul and Jean Michelin all crossing the goal line once and bringing their record to 5-4. If this team takes the win next week, they will have clinched a spot in the playoffs. The Junior Streaks ,coached by Bob Duncan, took the field with the Bulldogs and scored on the third play from scrimmage and it seemed a romp was on. But Desoto wasn't about to go down that easy. The Junior Bulldogs scored and missed the extra point making it 7-6. They traded another touchdown each until the Streaks scored in the fourth quarter, making the score 21-13. That's how it ended as well, which brings their record to 6-3 and clinches a playoff spot in the first round. The Senior Blue Streaks traveled to Osceola to play the Panthers where they took the opening drive down field and scored. According to coaches and players, two touchdowns were called back because the referees were so fooled by where the ball was in the deception offense. Less those two scores and the Streaks lost a shot at beating a big city team that ended in a 22-7 loss. The last game of the regular season is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 23, with the Blue Streaks playing the Poinciana Predators at home and the Thunderbolts playing the South Orange Patriots away in Orlando. Games will begin at 9 a.m. Please come down to the Highlands County Sports Complex to support our youth football program. Continued from 1B SYF heads into final week of regular season Somewhere along the way, c oaches started teaching it w rong and the trend has cont inued far too long to where w e find ourselves here. Drive yourself into them, i nto them, wrap your arms a nd drive him to the ground. Fling yourself at their heads, with no apparent attempt to actually tackle them well, that's often not going to get it done. The player might not be intending to concuss the other player, he might not have evil intent flowing through him because this was the type of tackling he was taught. Harrison saying he might retire because this is the only way he knows how to play might speak to his fragile psyche, it might be a bit of whining so he doesn't have to pay such a heavy fine. Or it might very well be a very serious undertone as to how he was taught to play the game and that's what needs to be fixed. Dan Hoehne is the SportsEditor of the News-Sun.

Special to the News-SunSEBRING Everyone knows that cleaning and bandaging a cut is one way to make it heal faster yet the local experts at Highlands Regional Wound Center point to studies that say reducing stress and not arguing with your romantic partner can also aid in healing. Highlands Regional Wound Center is operated in partnership with National Healing Corporation, which is an official partner of the Wound Healing Research Program at The Ohio State University (OSU). Results from a number of studies by the university's researchers found that stress can slow the healing of wounds and weaken the immune system. One study found that married couples who argued healed at 60 percent of the rate of couples that got along. The American Academy of Dermatology also advises that stress can make psoriasis or rosacea worse, inflame acne, lead to brittle nails and hair loss, cause or worsen hives, and impair skin barrier function to allow irritants, allergens and infectious agents to penetrate the skin. The Highlands Regional Wound Center offers the following guidelines for knowing if stress is putting your health at risk: Everyone reacts to stress differently. Common symptoms can include headaches, rapid heartbeat, chest pains, problems sleeping, irritability, anxiety, upset stomach, back and neck pain, overeating or loss of appetite, forgetfulness and fatigue. Learn how stress affects you. For example, recognizing you reach for the cookie jar when stressed will help keep you from packing on extra pounds. What is it that is driving you crazy? By first slowing down and analyzing the family relationships, work issues or health concerns that may be leading to stress, you can then more easily identify possible solutions. To keep yourself from going mental, get physical. One OSU study found that older adults who followed a regular exercise routine speed up the wound-healing process by as much as 25 percent. Don't let stress lead you to neglect your skin care regimen or fall into behaviors such as scratching, pulling or rubbing that can make skin conditions worse. Don't take it out on the ones you love. OSU researchers found that even newlywed wives risked weakened immune systems after marital arguments. Money worries are a major source of stress. Take a realistic look at your financi al situation and then plan a course of action that puts yo u in control of the situatio n. Make a budget, get the enti re family involved in saving an d consider outside recours es such as not-for-profit cred it counseling organizations f or debt that seems overwhelm ing. Don't get caught up in the drama of the negati ve news stories about the state of the economy and wor ld affairs. Pay attention to wh at is going on in your life an d stay focused on managin g your stress and achievin g your goals. Think outside of the bo x to help escape stress. Eatin g dinner at home with the fam ily can save money an d improve relationships. Try a new hobby like learning a new computer program th at can add to your value at wo rk or give you a skill to find a new job. Contact the Wound Cente r, 7200 S. George Blvd., or ca ll 382-2032.

W ith the abundance of sweet t reats consumed on H alloween, not to mention t he Thanksgiving pies and h oliday cookies to come, n ow is the perfect time to t each your kids healthy h abits, such as nutritious eati ng and good oral hygiene. Here are some ideas for k eeping things healthy while s till having fun: Candy common sense Consider offering alternat ives to candy on Halloween. S tickers, removable tattoos o r bottles of bubbles will be a refreshing change for kids o f all ages. Toys like jump r opes, hacky sacks or sidew alk chalk for hopscotch w ill encourage kids to be a ctive while still having fun. Of course, you won't be a ble to avoid candy comp letely. Let your kids i ndulge now and then. Enjoying treats in moderation will help your kids learn to savor the moment. The unsweet tooth Half of all American kids will have a cavity by age 10. The good news is that you can play a role in teaching your kids healthy oral care habits from an early age. Be a role model with your own oral health by brushing and flossing every day and encourage your kids to practice along with you. The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests parents supervise children under seven. Making brushing fun can encourage interdependence so kids become accustomed to their daily routines. Power toothbrushes, which typically remove more plaque than manual ones, can assist parents in teaching healthy brushing habits. Consider trying a toothbrush like the Philips Sonicare For Kids. It's simple to use and designed with two gripping locations so you can help your child brush. It also has a "KidTimer" to help children reach the dentist-recommended two-minute brushing time and musical tones indicating when it's time to move to a different area of the mouth. To learn more, visit sonicareforkids. philips.com. Snack-or-treat? On Halloween, offer your kids a healthy snack before they go trick-or-treating. Peanut butter and apple slices and a glass of low-fat milk will go a long way in keeping candy cravings at bay. Filling them with protein and fiber will leave less room for sweet treats that offer little nutritional value. Party down Halloween parties are a great new tradition that allows kids to stay safely off the streets while eating a moderate amount of sweets and getting exercise from fun and games. Just make sure you keep lit candles and jack-o-lanterns away from high-traffic areas. Then join in the fun! Tips for a healthy Halloween StatePoint Media It's important to brush your teeth after trick-or-treating.

RJB Rehabilitation expands to Lake Placid Snapshots Follow the News-Sun on www.twitter.com/thenewssun www.facebook.com/newssun and By KELLI KENNEDY Associated Press WriterMIAMI Akey U.S. Senator is asking federal officials to investigate after reviewing data that shows doctors across the country prescribing alarmingly high numbers of powerful mental health drugs paid for by Medicare and Medicaid. U.S. Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa studied Medicare and Medicaid prescription rates from doctors around the country, revealing few consequences for doctors with alarming prescription rates. The findings include a Miami doctor who wrote nearly 97,000 prescriptions in 18 months for mental health drugs for Medicaid patients and an Ohio physician who wrote about 102,000 prescriptions in two years. ATexas doctor wrote 14,170 prescriptions for the anti-anxiety drug Xanax in 2009, far exceeding other high prescribers in that state. The 10th highest prescriber in Texas for Xanax wrote 1,696 prescriptions in 2009, according to Grassley. "The federal government has an obligation to figure out what's going on here. The taxpayers are footing the bill, and Medicare and Medicaid are already strained to the limit," Grassley said in an e-mail to The Associated Press on Wednesday. These programs can't spare a dollar for prescription drugs that aren't properly prescribed. The conclusion might be that there isn't any fraud, but it's important to reach a conclusion one way or the other and fix whatever is broken." The Republican senator is a ranking member of the Senate Finance Committee, which oversees Medicare and Medicaid The federal government does not investigate doctors who prescribe suspiciously high rates of drugs for fraud, and instead lumps them into a separate category where they are referred for medical review or education, according to Grassley's investigation. Critics say the medical reviews are nothing more than a slap on the wrist for doctors, allowing the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services to ignore the role prescription drug fraud plays in the estimated $60 to $90 billion a year Medicare fraud problem. The agency contracts with priva te providers who are responsible f or monitoring Medicare prescription rat es and other billing aberrations. Sta te health departments monitor simil ar data for Medicaid. Grassley sent a letter Wednesd ay asking Department of Health an d Human Services Sec. Kathle en Sebelius to explain how the agen cy ensures contractors are properly mon itoring and reporting the data. He al so asked her to explain why "possib le overutilizers" are treated different ly than those suspected of fraud. CMS did not immediately comme nt Thursday morning. Grassley did not name the docto r, but state records obtained by The A P show Dr. Fernando Mendez-Villam il wrote an average of 153 prescriptions a day for 18 months ending in Mar ch 2009. That's nearly twice the number of the second highest prescriber in Florida, who wrote a little more th an 53,000 prescriptions, according to a list compiled by state officials. The doctor's attorney, Robert Pelie r, did not immediately return an e-ma il Thursday. Federal officials said they stopp ed reimbursing Villamil after Grassl ey inquired about the doctor to HHS in December. Senator: Feds should probe high prescribing doctors The federal government has an obligation to figure out what's going on here. The taxpayers are footing the bill, and Medicare and Medicaid are already strained to the limit.'CHARLESGRASSLEY U.S. senator

Although I had only met him one o ther time, he began talking a t length about his three c hildren. He went into great d etail about their employm ent, where they lived, and t heir families. While he was talking, I w as reminded of a verse f rom the Bible that he was p roving true. III John v.4 s ays, "I have no greater joy t han to know that my child ren walk in truth." Truly, when one nears the e nd of his life, he is not so c oncerned with the education a nd career he has invested y ears in. Nor is one so e namored with the wealth a nd things he has accumulate d. What is most important i n the life of many people is t heir children and grandchild ren. As a father myself, I am b eginning to understand w hat it means to have joy a nd pride in seeing my child ren grow up. The Bible s ays, "The father of the r ighteous shall greatly r ejoice: and he that begetteth a wise child shall have joy o f him" (Proverbs 23:24). But at the same token, w hat can be a parent's joy c an become a parent's greate st disappointment. As child ren who walk in truth bring the maximum reward to the heart of a parent, so a child who strays from the truth brings the greatest sorrow. Proverbs 17:25 says, "Afoolish son is a grief to his father, and bitterness to her that bare him." As I meet elderly folks in nursing homes and assisted living facilities, I see that they have very little as far as materialism is concerned. But interestingly enough, those who have trained up children to fear the Lord and love God, have eternal treasures invested in Heaven. Their children's memory lives on and the reminders of their true joy is the pictures adorning their walls. Indeed, there is no greater joy for those who have children walking in truth. As I consider many of the youth today, I see how they are willful, selfish and rebellious. Many have no time for their families, and neglect the instruction of their parents. So many parents are suffering from broken hearts because their children have chosen a path of destruction. These young people are a disappointment instead of a joy. Sadly, many of these youth were never taught the truth of God's Word and instructed in the way of righteousness. Many Godless parents set themselves up for a broken heart because they will not take their children to church. The Bible has no place in the home, and prayer has no priority. No wonder we are seeing a generation of young people without truth. They are fed the garbage of this world and we wonder why they turn out to be junkies! Many parents have done themselves an injustice by withholding the truth from their children and now suffer the pain and disappointment of seeing their children wander in the error of this world. May we turn back to the Bible and read the truth once again. If you are a child of God, remember that each time you sin, you break the Father's heart. Why not obey the truth and become His greatest joy! Luke Knickerbocker is the pastor of Bethel Baptist Church in Lake Placid, Florida, located on 216 E.

Timeless Treasure Luke Knickerbocker Snapshots You want the best for your family. You work hard, come home exhausted, and still have to deal with extra curricular activities. Sometimes you don't even get to eat together. Do you need a "Calgon, take me away" moment? I have good news. There is a solution if you love your family (and yourself) enough to implement it. The solution is prayer. I'm not talking about a few quick words as you're heading out the door. I'm not talking about a wish uttered as a prayer. I'm talking about mountain-moving prayer that is only available to God's children, those who have called on His name in repentance for their sins, and have asked Him to be their Heavenly Father, Lord and Savior. So many things fill our lives we no longer take time to read the Bible and pray. Consequently we no longer have mountainmoving faith. But we can get it back. Do you want your children to grow up with lives as harried as yours? They will because they learn by example. Yet it is possible to make time for God, no matter how busy our lives are. In fact, I would suggest the busier we are, the more we need God. Would you go through a day without eating? No. Your body needs nourishment to keep up with the fast pace. Our spirits also need strength to keep our relationshi ps and spiritual energy going. Here are a few scriptures that I have found renewing in my own life: John 15:7; 14-16 and John 16:23, 24. I f we are God's children, He has promised u s that if we abide (stay) in Him, and let His word, the Bible abide (take root) in us, w e can ask anything we want and it will be done. That's because if we stay close to Him, we learn His character and what He wants, so whatever we ask for will be wh at He wants to do anyway. He wants us to a sk Him, just as your parents wanted you to ask them for things when you were growing up. Psalms 37:4 says, "Delight thyself in th e Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart." Do you love your family enough to build up your faith and ask Go d for things on their behalf?

She's not comfortable discussing things with me; instead she goes to her older sister with all her questions. They talk to each other in whispered tones in their bedroom with the door closed and locked. When I try to discuss things with Skye, she becomes red in the face and refuses to talk to me. She is now ashamed to even have me see her undressed, but has no shyness about her body with her sister. They have always had a close relationship, and I am pleased about that, but I feel shut out of what should be something between a mother and a daughter. I do not feel I have ever done anything to make Skye feel uncomfortable with me about such things, and I feel hurt to be excluded like this. My older daughter was very open with me about what she was experiencing when she was going through puberty. I have tried to ask Skye what the problem is; she won't talk to me. What can I do? Shut Out in Kansas City DearShut Out: No two children are alike, and it appears that your younger daughter is modest to the extreme. It's possible that because Skye has always shared a room with her older sister, that's the reason she's more comfortable discussing the changes that are occurring with her rather than you. My advice is to step back and don't push Skye. Be glad she can confide in her sister, and check with your older girl periodically to find out if there is anything you should know. DearAbby: Due to the war on terror and a renewed sense of patriotism, more individuals and businesses are displaying American flags. However, many appear to be unfamiliar with flag etiquette. With Veteran's Day approaching (Nov. 11), please encourage readers to inspect their flags and make sure the y are being displaye d correctly. If the fla g is torn or dirty, it should be cleaned and mended, or di sposed of with dignity. Aproperly handled flag is a sign of respect to those who have served, and currently serve, to protect the freedoms we Americans often take for granted. Proud Family Memb er Of AVetera n DearProud Family Member: Your letter is timely and important. Prou d Americans who display flag s should be aware of a rule o f flag etiquette that states tha t the flag should be in good condition. Sadly, I have see n more than a few that looked like faded red, white and blue rags. According to the U.S. Flag Code, "When a flag ha s served its useful purpose, it should be destroyed, prefer ably by burning." The pam phlet "Flag Etiquette" published by the American Legion states: "For individual citizens this should be done discreetly so that the act is not perceived as a protest or desecration." Many American Legion posts conduct Disposal of Unserviceable Flag ceremonies on June 14, Flag Day, each year. The Boy an d Girl Scouts of America also are able to conduct these ceremonies. If you're ready to dispose of yours, check with the local Boy or Girl Scout Council or wait until the Girl Scout cookie sales start locally and offer the flag to a troop during a sale at a small business.

The Vatican newspaper h as declared that Homer is p art of the pope's flock a claim that is leaving The Simpsons" TVprod ucer baffled and amused. "Few people know it a nd he does everything to h ide it but it is true: H omer J. Simpson is C atholic," L'Osservatore R omano wrote in its w eekend edition under the h eadline: "Homer and B art are Catholic." Last December, the n ewspaper also praised t he show on its 20th a nniversary for its philos ophical leanings and i rreverent take on relig ion. The weekend story was t he latest example of the V atican paper's efforts to b e more relevant in the l ast few years, and foll ows stories not only laudi ng Harry Potter but even p raising the Beatles and w axing philosophical a bout John Lennon's b oast that the British band w as more popular than J esus. The paper quoted an a nalysis by a Jesuit priest, t he Rev. Francesco O cchetta, discussing H omer's and his son B art's conversion in a 2 005 episode after meeti ng with a sympathetic p riest, Father Sean, v oiced by actor Liam N eeson. L'Osservatore says the a nalysis shows that b ehind the TVprogram's j okes are themes "linked t o the sense and quality of l ife." "'The Simpsons' r emain among the few p rograms for children in w hich the Christian faith, r eligion and the question o f God are recurring t hemes," it said. "The f amily recites prayers t ogether before meals and, i n its own way, believes in h eaven." While noting that "The S impsons" often takes j abs at religious figures, it s aid parents should not be a fraid to let their children w atch "the adventures of t he little guys in yellow." But the show's produce r told Entertainment W eekly the Vatican may h ave gone a step too far in i ts analysis of the satire, n oting that Homer and B art only consider conv erting in the 2005 e pisode. "My first reaction is s hock and awe, and I g uess it makes up for me n ot going to church for 20 y ears," EW.com quoted e xecutive producer Al J ean as saying. Jean noted that the S impson family attends t he First Church of S pringfield "which is d ecidedly Presbyluthera n." "We've pretty clearly s hown that Homer is not C atholic," he told the e ntertainment website. "I r eally don't think he could g o without eating meat on F ridays for even an hour." But L'Osservatore w ould seem to take that in s tride, too. "Skeptical realism s eems to prevail in the S impson stories," it w rote. "Young generations of t elevision watchers are e ducated to not let thems elves be fooled. The m oral? None. But one k nows that a world witho ut easy illusions is a m ore human world and, perhaps, more Christian." In excelis D'oh! Vatican says Homer, Bart Catholic By DAVID GERMAIN APMovie WriterHilary Swank is at her best in working-class, little-people roles, and she's found another one with "Conviction," the real-life story of Betty Anne Waters, who put herself through law school on an 18-year fight to clear her brother of a murder rap. The drama is straightforward, even a bit superficial, kind of an "Erin Brockovich" on a bad-hair day still appealing and inspiring, still ready to take on the system, though rote and predictable here and there. But Swank, sometimes adrift in lofty parts such as Amelia Earhart in last year's "Amelia," keeps "Conviction" grounded with blue-collar pluck and earnestness reminiscent of her Academy Award-winning roles in "Boys Don't Cry" and "Million Dollar Baby." Swank, also an executive producer on "Conviction," is nicely aided by excellent performances from Sam Rockwell as Waters'brother, Kenny, and Minnie Driver as a lawyer pal who joins the effort to free her sibling. Director Tony Goldwyn and screenwriter Pamela Gray, who previously collaborated on "AWalk on the Moon," offer flashbacks to show the deep bond between Betty Anne and Kenny, their attachment unshakable despite a hardknocks childhood in which they were sometimes separated in different foster homes. Ataste of these childhood moments probably would have been enough, since Swank and Rockwell have such an easy, natural kinship that makes the siblings'devotion clear and genuine. While touching, the childhood moments pile up a bit too thickly, bogging down the main event. That main event begins with the 1980 stabbing death of a Massachusetts woman in a robbery at her trailer home. Kenny initially is questioned and released, but three years later, he's sentenced to life in prison, partly on testimony from two ex-girlfriends (one played by Juliette Lewis in a small but effective role). With the judicial system shrugging off Kenny's pleas of innocence, Betty Anne, who has two kids to tend and doesn't even have a high school diploma, embarks on the long process of getting an education and a law degree in hopes of springing her brother from prison. Along with Driver as a law school classmate, Betty Anne finds help from attorney Barry Scheck (Peter Gallagher) of the Innocence Project, which pioneered the use of DNAevidence to overturn wrongful convictions. Melissa Leo, who has been getting some significant roles since her Oscarnominated performance in 2008's "Frozen River," is splendid as a police officer at the center of the case, creating a full-bodied character almost out of thin air given she appears in only a few fleeting scenes. The action flows with a certainty that saps some of the drama and suspense. While Swank's Betty Anne continually hits what seem like insurmountable obstacles, there's little doubt that she'll find her way over, under or through each one. Yet it's enormous fun to watch Swank in her element, pounding down legal barriers with the same tenacity she used to knock out opponents in "Million Dollar Baby." After winning her first Oscar with "Boys Don't Cry" then floundering in some ill-fitting roles before "Million Dollar Baby" came along, Swank commented on the difficulty of finding really decent characters to play. When she lands the right part, Swank delivers with as much conviction as anyone working in Hollywood today.

LIVING 10B PAGE News-Sun Friday, October 22, 2010 PICK THE PERFECT ONEWhether you visit a pumpkin patch or the grocery store, look for pumpkins that are large and ripe and have smooth surfaces and at least a two-inch stem. (Stemless, dented and bruised pumpkins may already be in decline.) If you plan to light your jack-o'-lantern with a candle, the pumpkin should be at least 9 inches high. Also, lighter-colored pumpkins are easier to carve because they're softer. CARVE IT WELLHere's a pumpkin-carving primer from Disney FamilyFun magazine: Draw your design on the pumpkin with a water-based marker. Mistakes can be erased easily with a damp sponge. Cut the lid at an angle so the outside diameter is larger than the inside. This prevents the top from falling into the pumpkin when it shrinks. Serrated metal saws, now widely available in carving kits, are a safer alternative to knives and allow younger children to help. But remember, kids should carve only under adult supervision. Scoop out seeds and stringy flesh with a large spoon or ice cream scoop. Carve facial features closest to the center first and work outward. Use an X-Acto knife for details and the tip of a potato peeler to make small circles and curves. If you accidentally remove a section, use a toothpick to pin it back in place. Flatten a spot in the base of the pumpkin for the candle, but if you dig too deep the pumpkin will be prone to rot.Here are some tips if you're using a stencil design: Attach the stencil to the face of the pumpkin with tape. You may have to make small slits in the pattern so it will wrap around the pumpkin. Use a poker tool to transfer the design onto the pumpkin. Follow the design's lines, poking holes about one-eighth of an inch apart. Do not poke the holes all the way through the pumpkin, only through the outer skin. Be patient. Taking a little extra time now will save you headaches later on. Before you remove the stencil, check to make sure that you've made a complete dotted outline. After you remove it, save it for later reference. If the pattern is difficult to make out, rub flour over the holes. Use a carving saw to cut along the dotted lines. Remember, this is a saw, not a knife. Sew up and down in a steady motion, following your pattern carefully. Start at the center of the design and work to the outside. Always carve at a 90-degree angle, and keep your saw perpendicular to the pumpkin's surface.KEEPIT FRESHCarved jack-o'-lanterns are short-lived, so it's best to carve no earlier than a day or two before Halloween. (Or, carve early in the season for practice and then again later.) Seal in moisture by coating all cut surfaces with petroleum jelly or vegetable oil, or cover the pumpkin with a damp towel when not on display. Better yet, keep carved pumpkins in the fridge during the heat of the day. And bring them indoors on nights when the temperature may drop below freezing.USE PAINTConsider giving young children stickers, tempera paint or markers to decorate their pumpkins. It's safer, and the pumpkins will last longer.CONSIDER AFAKEIf you get sad watching your jack-o'-lantern morph into a hideous shrunken head, consider a synthetic pumpkin. Available at most craft stores, carvable polyurethane pumpkins look like the real thing (they even come in different shapes and sizes) but last for years. Candles are off-limits, though, so if you want it to glow, use electric lights.TAKE AGREAT PHOTOTips from Chuck DeLaney, dean of the New York Institute of Photography: Fill the frame with your jack-o'-lantern and keep the background simple. To make the picture more meaningful, include the faces of family members. Get down low so you can see their faces over the top of the pumpkin. To capture an eerie glow, shoot at twilight and turn your flash off. Use high-speed film or a fast setting on your digital camera. If you can, put your camera on a tripod or other steady surface to eliminate blur. Don't light just one candle in the pumpkin. Two or three will produce a far better picture. Want a really cool effect? Place the lighted jack-o'lantern in a fireplace and make a small fire from a few sheets of newspaper behind it.ROAST THE SEEDSWash pumpkin seeds and pat them dry. Combine with 11/2tablespoons melted margarine,1/2teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon garlic salt and 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce. Place in a shallow baking dish and bake at 275 degrees for one hour, stirring occasionally.PLAYPUMPKIN GOLFCarve a pumpkin, making the mouth extra large. Build a cardboard ramp from the ground to the bottom of the pumpkin's mouth. (Provide some support under the cardboard, such as books, and tape the ramp to the floor for stability.) Designate a starting point a few feet from the ramp and have players try to hit a golf ball into the pumpkin. Winner gets a piece of candy or some roasted pumpkin seeds.GET MORE ONLINEFor lots more pumpkin games, recipes, virtual pumpkin carving and more, check out these Web sites: www.pumpkinnook.com www.knowledgehound.com/topics/hallowee.html www.thepumpkinfarm.com/fun.html www.perpetualpreschool.com www.pumpkincarving101.com www.pumpkinmasters.com fall.about.com Fort Worth Star-TelegramSOURCES: STAR-TELEGRAM STAFF WRITER KARALEE MILLER; "HALLOWEEN ON ADIME," BY TAWRAKELLAM; MAGICAL CHILDHOOD.COM; KANSAS STATE UNIVERSITY RESEARCH; THE WICHITA EAGLE; WWW.PUMPKIN CARVING101.COM; WWW.PUMPKIN MASTERS.COM.
