By ED BALDRIDGE email@example.comSEBRING "I just want others to know that it exists and it is treatable," said Jean Foster this week. Foster is the recent widow of Nu-Hope Director Sandy Foster, whose sudden death in September left many in the community in shock. Sandy Foster, a veteran who served in Vietnam, died unexpectedly while on a golfing trip in North Carolina from a heart attack that Jean was told later was caused by ischemic heart disease, which can be caused by Agent Orange. Ischemic heart disease is characterized by a reduced flow of blood to the heart muscle, which makes a person feel tired, and can cause a heart attack. Jean was informed that her husband's condition was one approved by Congress to receive benefits this year because of the exposure vets received during the Vietnam War. "I was stunned when I discovered that Sandy died from a form of heart disease that is caused by Agent Orange," Foster told the News-Sun this week. "I am angry as well. If we had of known, he would still be here. No ifs, ands or buts about it. "I just wanted to get the word out to every vet that this is out there and it can be managed. I called the vets in Europe this week to let them know, and many were not aware that the VA had decided in August that this was one of the side effects of Agent Orange exposure, and that it is a killer," she said. "If they know, they could prevent what happened to Sandy. I don't want his death to be in vain." Foster stated that she and her husband had no idea that the VAhad made this announcement, and was concerned that others were in the same situation. "If you know, then you go and have it checked out. Asimple x-ray could have made a difference. I know we all die sometime, but something as simple as a visit to check for it could have extended Sandy's life," she said. Sandy Foster was just 65 when he died, and Jean felt that he had a lot of life left to live.

The arena rock-themed night proved a tough genre for several of the contestants but the competition was strong nonetheless. The crowd took a few acts to warm up to the contestants, but once the fourth contestant took the stage the crowd participation got a huge boost. Manny Concepcion, 42, of Avon Park, sang his rendition of "Urgent" by Foreigner. Concepcion got the crowd involved after nearly no participation from the audience with the previous three entertainers. Claps and shouts began to creep out among the audience as Concepcion closed out his song. "That was hot," critiqued judge Vicki Jones. "Great song choice for you; you did well with it," said Larry Moore. Concepcion wasn't completely pleased with his performance and stated he "could've done better." He was one of 12 to advance to next Thursday's show. Concepcion was followed by three of the competition's most talented ladies, who each got nothing but praise from the five judges. The judges brought out the lighters and swayed as Ashley Elder of Avon Park sang "I Want to Know What Love Is."

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY firstname.lastname@example.orgLAKE PLACID Ray Royce quoted Socrates, Bill Douglas hugged Joy Eberhardt and Heather Harshman, Denise Grimsley brought a very young escort and Eileen May fought back tears the Lake Placid Chamber of Commerce's annual banquet not only went smoothly and on time, but provided moments of true emotion as well. Every year, the chamber recognizes outstanding individuals and businesses who have contributed to the chamber or the community. Arlene Tuck, who has served on the town council and since 1988 has been the town's clerk, was honored with the Dal Hall Award. Originally called the "Outstanding Government Official Award," it was renamed in memory of Hall, a long time mayor of the town. Town Councilman Royce introduced Tuck with words from the Greek philosopher. "No man undertakes a trade he has not learned ... yet everyone thinks himself sufficiently qualified for the hardest of all trades, that of government." Tuck, Royce said, is a shining example of public service. The Chamber Charger Award is given to the chamber member who has demonstrated outstanding service on chamber events for the year. Bob Larson was recognized for his work on the annual car and bike show, from organizing the event to raising funding and recruiting prizes. The Special President's Award is only awarded if the current president of the chamber feels a person or organization is deserving of acknowledgment but does not fall into the other award categories. This year the chamber honored Denise Grimsley for her consistent support for and attendance at chamber and community events and her representation of Lake Placid at the state level. Grimsley's young grandson, Tyson, enjoyed time on her lap. The Spectrum Award is given in appreciation for the business which has done the most to beautify its grounds and building. Shawn and Barbara Larkin were honored for bringing their Main Street America Restaurant back from the ashes after it burned to the ground. The Lake Placid Leadership Award went to newly elected school board member Bill Brantley. It was presented to him by town council member Cheryl Brantley Davis, his sister. C&C Plumbing, and its owner Gene Carevari, were recognized this year with the Industry Appreciation Award, given to businesses for growth, support and involvement in the community. The Chamber's Board Appreciation Award went to Bill Douglas and Joy Eberhardt for their service and contributoins to Lake Placid, especially their work on the landscape project for Devane Circle. Two individuals were honored for their as volunteers. Lu Witt was named Volunteer of the Year for her contributions at the chamber office, and Kerry Thompson was honored for his outstanding service to youth at Junior Achievement. Thompson and Jean Fortier, as outgoing chamber directors, were recognized for their outstanding work in those positions, as was Susie Page 2ANews-SunSunday, October 24, 2010www.newssun.com Personal Injury & Wrongful Death Medical & Nursing Home Malpractice Workers'Compensatioin Social Security Disability Automobile Accidents K A Y L O R R & & K A Y L O R R P A M A R K K K A Y L O R Lawyers, Past and Present.

WWOJ to host election night party on Sebring Circle Associated PressMIAMI The state's attorney general will not fight a court ruling that overturned Florida's threedecade ban on gay adoptions, considered the strictest in the country. Attorney General Bill McCollum announced his decision Friday, the last day he could ask the Florida Supreme Court to review the 3rd District Court of Appeal's decision. In a statement, McCollum said the issue "is a divisive matter of great public interest" and eventually should be resolved by the high court. "But after reviewing the merits of independently seeking Supreme Court review, following the decision of our client, the Department of Children & Families, not to appeal ... it is clear this is not the right case," McCollum said. The department previously announced it no longer would enforce the ban and was changing its forms so adoptive parents aren't asked if they're homosexuals. "No doubt, someday, a more suitable case will give the Supreme Court the opportunity to uphold t he constitutionality of th is law," McCollum said. The Miami appeal cou rt last month upheld a 200 8 ruling by a circuit judg e, who found "no ration al basis" for the ban when s he approved the adoption of two young brothers b y Martin Gill and his ma le partner. "We finally have fina lity," Gill said. "The ado ption is going to go throug h. That is a great weight o ff my shoulders." The American Civ il Liberties Union, which re presented Gill, initial ly urged an appeal to put a final end to the issue, b ut the ACLU and Children & Families now agree the b an can't be enforced statewi de because of the appe al court's ruling. "This law, by baseless ly branding gay people un fit parents, was one of t he most notorious anti-g ay laws in the country," sa id ACLU senior staff attorn ey Leslie Cooper. "This vict ory means that the thousan ds of children in Florida wh o are waiting to be adopt ed will no longer be needless ly deprived of willing and ab le parents." McCollum: No appeal to keep state's gay adoption ban
By BETH DeFALCO Associated Press WriterSOUTH BRUNSWICK, N .J. AFlorida pastor who d rew international criticism b y threatening to burn a copy o f the Quran picked up a free c ar on Friday, his reward f rom a New Jersey car dealer f or calling it off. Former New York Giants t ackle Brad Benson, who is n ow New Jersey's largest car d ealer, offered Florida pastor T erry Jones a 2011 Hyundai A ccent worth $14,200 if he w ould agree to never burn the M uslim holy book. Jones had t hreatened to do it on the a nniversary of the Sept. 11, 2 001, terror attacks. Jones never burned the Q uran. On Friday, the G ainesville, pastor arrived at B rad Benson Mitsubishi H yundai in South Brunswick t o collect a gray 2011 H yundai Accent, which he p romptly donated to a charit y. The pastor said the offer B enson made in one of his d ealership's quirky radio ads w as not the reason he decided t o cancel the Quran burning, a nd that he only heard about i t a few weeks after Sept. 11. "We thought if he wants to g ive a car, then why not take it and pass it on to another nonprofit organization," Jones said. Jones donated the car a Jersey City shelter that helps abused women. Paul Johnson, the chief financial officer for Women Rising, said he was surprised to hear that the shelter was getting the car and under such unusual circumstances. "I couldn't believe it at first, I thought it was a prank," Johnson said. Benson added giant removable vinyl American flag-emblazoned peace signs on the hood and roof, which he said were meant as a "little jab" at Jones. "I'm just really glad that in the end something really good came out of all this," Benson said. Benson paid for the pastor to fly out to New Jersey so that Jones could fill out paperwork. Security was tight on Friday at the dealership. Jones said he has received more than 100 death threats since he first said he would burn a Quran. When Jones threatened to burn the Quran which many Muslims would view as sacrilege his plan drew opposition across the world. President Barack Obama appealed to him on television, and Defense Secretary Robert Gates called him personally. Gen. David Petraeus, head of the U.S. mission in Afghanistan, said carrying out the plan would have endangered American troops. The Quran commercial was part of a regular "idiot award" segment Benson does which singles out newsmakers. Others have included actress Lindsey Lohan, actor Mel Gibson and baseball star Roger Clemens.

Wilson and Sapp have been providing residents throughout Highlands County with pink hair extensions in honor of breast cancer awareness. The duo charges only a few dollars to do the small extension and all the money collected is given directly to a patient group that benefits survivors and patients with the disease. "We are pushing personal care. We've created a separate and private registration for patients and we just know all this can will make it a little easier for people.

I h ave not seen a news prog ram or read a newspaper in d ays. There is a good reason for t his: I am in Oregon this w eek, attending a writing w orkshop. I have not kept a breast of the news because q uite frankly, I haven't had t ime. When I told people I was g oing to a writer's works hop, many of them told me i t sounded like fun. I smiled w hen they said that, realizi ng they just didn't unders tand. Don't get me wrong, I h ave been enjoying my time o n the Oregon coast, where a s I type this the weather is m ild and I'm not melting f rom heat and humidity. The i nn I'm staying at has a fant astic free breakfast and I've m ade new friends. But this is a workshop. E mphasis on the word work." Which means I've b een spending time I might n ormally be watching televis ion, reading the paper, s leeping, etc. writing. Alot. A nd learning a ton. Agroup of sleep-deprived p eople can be a whacky b unch, especially if they're w riters. In honor of stated w ackiness, I'm going to d evote this column to some o f the strange and weird n ews out there this week. For example, you've heard o f "Take Your Daughter to W ork Day?" Aday when y ou take your female m unchkin to work and show h er how great your job is? One Michigan woman a pparently thought it was a g reat idea, or maybe she just c ouldn't find a baby-sitter. A nyway, she brought her t wo year old daughter with h er on a job a home breaki n, to be precise. Police arrested both the m other and the grandmother o f the child, who is in prot ective custody as I type this. T he kid will hopefully cons ider a different line of work w hen she gets older. Speaking of criminals with questionable IQ's, you have to wonder about a 19year-old North California man who allegedly walked up to a Redwood City police patrol car and asked for a ride home. For reasons that are not clear to me, the officer asked the young man if he was carrying anything illegal. The guy first told the officer "yes," then after a brief pause changed his answer to "no." The officer, who comes across as smarter than the 19-year-old, asked if he could search him. The young man agreed to the search and the police apparently discovered cocaine in his pocket. He got a ride to jail, where he's being charged with felony possession of cocaine. He was not charged with stupidity, though I think it would be a slam-dunk case if he was. Our last bit of news concerns a teenager taking his driving test in Pennsylvania. He had just passed the test and was dropping off the instructor when according to police he crashed into the state driver license center. Several people were injured, but not seriously. The article I read didn't say what happened to the kid's driver's license, but I suspect his test was regraded. Quickly. The craziness of this week will end soon. By the time you read this column I'll be wrapping up my time in Oregon and heading home. Back to my normal sort of craziness instead of the special kind that only a writer's workshop can bring. Let's hope that in my sleep deprived insanity I'm at least a little smarter than the examples in this column. And that you are as well. Laura Ware is a Sebring resident. She can be contacted by e-mail at bookwormlady@ embarqmail.com Strange and weird Laura's Look Laura Ware The dilemma is partly a result of the collision between our American tradition that insists every individual may worship as they wish and that no individual may be forced to follow the tenets of any particular religion and the quest for smaller, limited government. As governments on all levels cut back on services to citizens especially to the working poor, the unemployed and the troubled other agencies and organizations have had to take up the slack. It seemed natural, some 10 years ago, to make use of faith-based organizations already supplying needed services or willing to rise to the challenge. President George W. Bush said that government shouldn't be in the charity business, but that faith-based charity organizations certainly were. He then began a concerted effort to support religious charities and stop government funding of social services. Here in Highlands County, we are faced with an example of this conundrum with the good work being done at The Samaritan's Touch Care Center in Avon Park. With the generosity of local doctors, the center brings quality health care to those who cannot afford medical insurance, are of limited means and would have to otherwise go through hospital emergency rooms or receive no treatment at all. Without Samaritan's Touch, sick people would not receive follow-up care and health costs for the community would rise as hospitals and doctors alone shouldered the financial burden of providing care to the unfortunate. But, and here comes the conflict, Samaritan's Touch is an unabashedly Christian organization. Its informational pamphlet contains this quote: "Our goal is to share the love of God through the good news of Jesus Christ by extending His healing ministry to needy, hurting people in the Highlands County area." The county commission was warned this week that government grants to Samaritan's Touch are not in accordance with the state constitution because our tradition of religious freedom forbids the all-inclusive taxpayer base from supporting a particular religion or organization providing services only to those of a particular religion. We feel this tradition is wise and fair. On the other hand, we completely agree with those county commissione rs who praise Samaritan Touch's work. It fulfills a vital need with compassion an d skill. The center, while providing access to strictly Christian spiritual support, trea ts all who enter equally, without restri ctions. We feel this openness more than qua lifies the center for our local tax dollar s, especially as these dollars come fro m the lease the Highlands Region al Medical Center pays the county for u se of its land. But we can't agree with those com missioners who would wave a mag ic wand and provide grant funding regar dless of possible legal issues. In the first place, there is no su ch thing as a magic wand. And in the se cond, there is such thing as the court sy stem. We cannot condone, no matter ho w good or necessary the cause, ignorin g constitutional mandates. Anyone wh o takes an oath of office, swearing to uphold and protect the Constitutio n, cannot pick and choose what to follow We know the commissioners face a tough decision on this issue. We symp athize. On the other hand, every commissio ner not only volunteered for their job, b ut paid money and spent time to get it. That means finding a way throug h this paradox falls on their shoulders and with so much at stake, they need to get it right. Abstract philosophy runs into practical need As a nation, we face a paradox that impacts even the smallest of communities: The tension between freedom of religion and the emergence of faith-based critical services.

Providing this forum for our readers is a pleasure, not an obligation. Consolidation of county officesEditor: I would like to make a comment on the article a week or so ago on the consolidation of some county offices. Jeff Carlson, thank you for voting against it because of the raises it would cost. You seem to be the only one looking out for the future of Highlands County. People of Highlands County need to start watching the votes of our commissioners. Our future starts with local elections. Let's start listening and watching. One of these offices being consolidated is the Office of Management. Everyone is hurting with this economy. Let's start making sacrafices with the local offices. Thank you again to Jeff Carlson. We need more like him. Linda Kogelman Sebring Can you hear me now?Editor: July 11, a letter I had written came out in the NewsSun Sunday paper. The letter was about my neighbor whose apartment is adjacent to mine in a lowincome housing community. She and I were good neighbors to each other for about two years. Never once did we have a disagreement or any cross words. March 20 things changed between us. She began playing CDs around the clock. In the wee hours of the early morning she turned her record player up so loud I awakened out of sound sleep. When I called her on the phone she denied being responsible, saying she didn't own a record player. All she had was a radio. From March 20 until this date she continues night and day. Not one day has passed that she has failed to harass me with loud music. Some days she plays "Old MacDonald Farm," repeatedly all day long. Some days and/or nights she plays the radio and the record player at the same time. Whenever my neighbor sees someone coming or a car drive up she turns the music off while they are here, then waits until they leave and turns it on again. I have gone to the manager on site. She ignores my complaint every time by saying she doesn't have proof so nothing can be done. Untrue. Law officials aren't interested in "getting involved." Six months have passed with this abuse and even the mayor looks the other way. I am 90 years old and being robbed of peace, contentment and sleep every night. Now I have headaches because I must wear two plugs in each ear. The 21st of September I went to see Dr. Ruiz because my hearing in normal conversation was not as good. There was no wax causing loss of hearing. Sept. 29 I was seen by an audiologist. My hearing exam showed a loss of moderate to now severe, apparently caused by continuous loud music. When I saw the Oct. 10 News-Sun, I was delighted to see the information on teens hearing loss because of the technology flooding the market. The sad part is one item is not much different from the other yet children think they need one of each. Parents do not know how to say "No." I took the whole back page of the News-Sun highlighted "Can You Hear Me Now" with a personal note asking our manager on site if she would please read this interesting report. Aweek has passed no word from her. Finally, in all fairness, I have said from the beginning my neighbor's sudden change of behavior is "out of character for her." It isn't like her. Thank you for "Can You Hear Me." There is nothing more powerful than knowledge. The hunger for learning sets those of us so inclined, apart from the sluggards. Una V. McLaughlin SebringHeartland event another successEditor: Many thanks to all who stopped at our booth at the Ride To The Heartland in Sebring. We could not have accomplished this successful event without you. Our event ended on a very high note. The winner of our raffle, a $500 gift card, is a local senior citizen. We found her at American Legion Post 74 in Sebring after we made the phone call to locate her. She had no idea that she had won nor could she figure out how we knew where she was at about 3:30 p.m. We were told her location when we made the call. After screaming about her win and all the questioning coming from the other people at The Legion, all settled down and again the United States Military Veterans Motorcycle Club, Sebring Highlanders Chapter, were the heroes. The real heroes were all of our supporters. The winner said the money will make her Christmas shopping much easier. Many thanks to the Brothers and Sisters and to The HRA, who made this effort the most successful Ride To The Heartland to date. If you were there you know how hard everyone worked. We had a really great time and are already talking about the same even t in 2011. Ron Hochhaus er President USMVM /C Sebring Highlande rs Chapt er Idol is free, great entertainmentEditor: Heartland Idol is going o n once more, and the ones wh o don't go just don't know what they are missing.The fun of meeting new people, good food from the Idol cafe. Oh, that Idol dog is to rave about. More firm and fatter than a hot dog, plus longer than a foot long. Yum, yum, yummy. Then there is the talent. It is so rewarding to hea r the talent coming from the people right here in Highlands County. You may not always agree with the judges but the show is still more than .enjoyable. The raffle and 50-50 drawings are fun also. Hoping you win. This week's 50-50 was almost $500. Alan Jay of Alan Jay Auto put in an extra $100. He didn't want tickets; it was just a donation. My tic ket numbers didn't even com e close; oh well, there is always next week. Next week is the Halloween party; dress up funny, spooky or any old way. Who knows you just might win a prize, as well a s having a super show to watch. You are sure missing out if you stay at home; aft er all the show is free. Hope t o see you there.

Family picnic time By BILLKACZOR Associated Press WriterTALLAHASSEE Florida is investigating five private, for-profit colleges to determine if they've engaged in unfair or deceptive practices in recruitment and other areas or misled students about financial aid, the state attorney general's office said Friday. Ryan Wiggins, a spokeswoman for Attorney General Bill McCollum, on Friday confirmed his office was conducting a civil investigation. Wiggins said the investigation began in response to consumer complaints and a federal report that accused some for-profit schools of encouraging fraud and engaging in deceptive marketing practices. "It's all in its infancy right now," Wiggins said. She said officials are unsure how long the civil investigation will take. The colleges that McCollum's offi ce reports it is looking at are Kaplan Inc. of Alpharetta, Ga.; University of Phoenix In c. of Arizona; Argosy University of Flori da Inc.; Everest College, a subsidiary of Corinthian Colleges Inc. of Santa An a, Calif., and Medvance Institute Inc., of Miami. Most of the schools, which all ha ve branches in Florida, say they plan to coo perate. The Government Accountability Offic e, an arm of Congress, reported in August th at its investigation of 15 schools nationwi de found four colleges encouraged fraudule nt practices and that all made deceptive or ot herwise questionable statements to unde rcover applicants about such matters as cos ts and graduation rates.

Judge Larry Moore detecte d a few nerves in Kincaid's o therwise great performance. You did an incredible job. I d id hear a little nervousness," h e said. "There's no reason at a ll for you not to get up there a nd just blow. Just let it go." Afew minor technical diff iculties kept Amanda Mercer o f Lake Placid from performi ng in order, but she came b ack strong at the end of the s how armed with an electric g uitar. Mercer broke out into a very entertaining "guitar s olo" during her performance o f "What About Love" by H eart. "You were having fun, you e ngaged the crowed and you n ailed it," guest judge Alan J ay Wildstein said. It was a bittersweet perf ormance for Sebring's Andrea Mathis, who wowed the crowed Thursday night with her magnificent voice but was unable to deliver any more than a few words of Foreigner's "Cold As Ice." Mathis was visually frustrated as her nerves over performing an unfamiliar genre of song got the best of her. She got enormous support from the crowd even after she stopped and mumbled "I can't do this," but Mathis continued to entertain the crowd with her powerful voice. "I'm so angry and so confused...your voice is magnificent. I understand the struggle as a performer to step out of your comfort zone, but if you can get over that hurdle you'd be perfect," explained Moore.

Expires 10/31/10 6940 U.S. 27 N., Sebring 382-6339 BUSINESS Wouldn't it be nice if, a fter decades of hard w ork and saving, you c ould retire without w orrying about paying t axes? Alas, that'll p robably never happen. Even if your income d rops significantly postr etirement, chances are y ou'll still be taxed on a p ortion of it. And, d epending on where you r etire and your income s ources, you'll probably also face addit ional taxes on purchases, real estate, capit al gains, inheritances the list goes on. Consider these tax-related issues when b udgeting for retirement living expenses: Social Security. Most people can collect S ocial Security benefits as early as age 62, a lthough you drawing benefits before your f ull retirement age will significantly lower y our benefit amount. ("Full retirement a ge" is 65 for those born before 1938 and g radually increases to 67 for those born in 1 960 or later.) Although many states don't tax Social S ecurity benefits, they are counted as taxa ble income by the federal government. S o, depending on your overall income, you m ay owe federal tax on a portion of your b enefit. The formula is complicated, but b asically: Single people whose combined income f rom all sources is less than $25,000 are n ot taxed on their Social Security benefit. For combined income between $25,000 a nd $34,000, up to 50 percent of your bene fit may be taxed. For income over $34,000, up to 85 perc ent may be taxable. For married people filing jointly: benef its aren't taxable for combined income b elow $32,000; benefits between $34,000 a nd $44,000 are up to 50 percent taxable; b enefits over $44,000 are up to 85 percent t axable. For more details, read the IRS Tax Topic 4 23 and Publication 915 at www.irs.gov. After beginning to collect Social S ecurity, some people can't make ends m eet and must return to work, which can b ackfire: If you earn more than $14,160 a y ear, you'll lose one dollar of Social S ecurity benefits for every two dollars e arned over that amount. (Note: I nvestment income doesn't count.) Thus, if you need to continue working, i t may be wiser to postpone Social S ecurity until reaching full retirement age. S uch benefit reductions aren't completely l ost, however: Your benefit amount will be i ncreased upon reaching full retirement a ge to account for benefits withheld due to e arlier earnings. To learn more, read "How W ork Affects Your Benefits" at w ww.ssa.gov. IRAand 401(k) withdrawals. After age 5 9 12, you can start withdrawing from y our IRAor 401(k) without paying the 10 p ercent early withdrawal penalty. H owever, you will pay federal (and state, i f applicable) income tax on the withd rawals unless it's a Roth plan, whose c ontributions have already been taxed. Other taxes. Some people move to a nother state after retirement to their tax b urden. For example, seven states don't t ax personal income (although two others d o tax dividend and interest income). And f ive states charge no sales tax. But because o ther taxes and cost-of-living expenses v ary significantly by community, you s hould only consider such moves after d oing thorough research. The Retirement Living Information C enter (www.retirementliving.com) feat ures a state-by-state breakdown of the v arious taxes seniors are likely to pay, i ncluding those on income, sales, fuel, p roperty, inheritances, etc. Bottom line: Be sure to include taxes a mong the many expenses you need to p lan for at retirement.

SCHMID Associated Press WriterWASHINGTON The post office is trying again to get a rate increase next year. The agency said Friday it is appealing the Postal Regulatory Commission's rejection of its requested increase. The post office had asked for a 2-cent increase in the current 44-cent price for First Class stamps starting in January. Officials said the increase would help compensate for increasing losses caused by a drop in mail volume as a result of the weak economy, and a shift in communications and bill paying to the Internet. The commission rejected that request on Sept. 30. The Postal Service said it will ask a federal court of appeals in Washington to review of the commission's interpretation of the law that governs how prices can be set. The post office argues that the commission misread the statute and applied an incorrect standard in evaluating the request for a price increase. "We have a fundamental disagreement with the PRC's interpretation of the law," Postmaster General John E. Potter said in a statement. "This action is an investment in our future. We need to understand and define the rules under the current law should the Postal Service find itself in a similar situation in the future." According to the post office, the rate increase would generate about $2.3 billion in added revenue. The post office is facing a $6 billion loss and has cut staff, taken steps to close offices and asked Congress for permission to reduce mail delivery to five days a week. The post office is an arm of the federal government, but does not receive tax dollars for its operations. MCTphoto The Postal Service has been losing billions, and has had to cut staff. Post office still seeking rate hike for 2011 Special to the News-SunSouth Florida Community College (SFCC) offers a series of online courses through Element K that help residents of Highlands, Hardee, and DeSoto counties upgrade skills and for personal interest.

Golden Corral to honor military again Veterans, active duty military to get free meals By SANDYSHORE APBusiness WriterMotorists probably won't see gas pump prices budge much from their recent highs until the Federal Reserve decides next month whether it needs to take steps to stimulate the economy. After that, they could start falling. The national average for a gallon of gasoline was $2.827 on Friday, almost the same as it was on Monday, according to AAA, Wright Express and the Oil Price Information Service. Gas is about a dime more than a month ago and is still hovering about 20 cents higher than a year ago. Higher oil and gasoline prices have had more to do with uncertainty about the global economy and next month's Fed announcement than supply and demand. "I think the consumers have done what they can do. They've cut back on consumption in certain areas," PFGBest analyst Phil Flynn said. "The consumers are really just a pawn in this great economic crisis and so is the price of oil." Fed policymakers said on Sept. 21 that they were prepared to provide additional financial support for the economy, but details of how that will happen and how much money will be involved aren't expected to be announced until next month. Michael Lynch, president of Strategic Energy and Economic Research, said traders will focus more on the fundamentals of plentiful supplies and weak demand after the F ed decision, because there will be more inves tment opportunities available when the eco nomy improves. That could mean pump pric es will begin to fall again. The price of oil has risen nearly $10 a ba rrel as speculation about Fed action has crea ted volatile commodities market s. Contributing factors include a steep drop in the value of the dollar, which makes o il cheaper for buyers using other currencies, as well as refinery strikes that have cut gasoli ne supplies in France. Oil prices also retreated at times. They sl id more than 4 percent on Tuesday after Chin a, a big importer of oil, raised interest rates in an effort to slow its robust economic growt h.

By DAN HOEHNE firstname.lastname@example.orgCELEBRATION Though t he skies were clear and the c onditions calm, the same c ould not be said of Sebring B lue Streaks mood Friday n ight. After two down weeks a gainst the district leaders, t he blue and white were anxi ous and chomping at the bit t o get back on track against an improving Celebration squad. It showed, early and often, as big plays, quick-strike scores and a stingy, opportunistic defense paved the way to a 55-14 win over the Storm. After an onside kick to open the game didn't fool the Streaks, the offense started at their 46 and took all of one play to dent the scoreboard as Matt Grubb found a wide open Devin Clarke for a 54yard touchdown. "We just ran a fake reverse to get the safety to bite and hopefully get Devin behind the defense," head coach Jared Hamlin said. "It worked and he got behind them." The Sebring defense then got them the ball back, forcing the fumble on Celebration's first play before Clarke then took a hand-off from Grubb and raced 15 yards, making it 140 just 34 seconds into the game. The Storm did start to roll, putting together a nine-play drive, highlighted by a Juan Torres-Bruno 42-yard reception to the Streaks'17 yard line. But the defense would hold, surrendering only another five yards before taking over on downs. And now it was Sebring's turn to put together a steady, ground-gaining drive. From their own 12, the Streaks used short passing and some big runs to move the ball down the field. Devaris Faulk matched h is uniform number with a 2 3yard run and Damio n Thompson broke off a 1 4yarder. Grubb, meanwhile, co nnected with Clarke for 10 an Trini Sutton for 18 befo re eventually finding Ev an Lewis on a 10-yard score f or a 21-0 lead at the 1:41 ma rk SPORTS B SECTION Inside This Section Prep Football Scores . . .4B Hamilton ALCS MVP . . .3B Sebring Bowling Pic . . .4B News-Sun Sunday, October 24, 2010 News-Sun photos by DAN HOEHN E J aquan Williams tips, bobbles and then corrals this pass for a long gain in Friday's 55-14 win for the Blue Streaks at Celebrati on.

Sebring55Celebration14 By DAN HOEHNE email@example.comSEBRING The Green Dragons boys eked out a win in the season's next to last meet prior to districts, holding off strong efforts by Sebring and Avon Park Thursday at Highlands Hammock State Park. The Lady Blue Streaks, on the other hand, took a top five sweep to cruise past Avon Park and DeSoto. The usual suspects topped the leaderboard for Sebring, with Taylor Tubbs racing to a 21:28 time for first, Hannah Schroeder finishing second in 22:15 and Emily Smith in third at 24:00. And then Febe Murillo (25:38) and Christina Gourley (25:44) continued their season-long improvement to take fourth and fifth, respectively, earning Sebring the lowest and best possible cross country score of 15. Taking up the next tw o spots were Lady Red Dev ils Amanda Sanders (26:11) an d Jordan Edwards (26:2 5) before Kelly Broen (26:5 6) gave Sebring another finis her. Bailey Fitch-Rober ts (27:15) was Lake Placid's to p finisher, 10th overall, wi th Avon Park's Maria m Olupitan (27:20) an d Sebring's Cassand ra Marentes (27:23) finishin g out the top half of finishe rs on the day.

By KATE ROWLAND Special to the News-SunCLEWISTON The Lake Placid Green Dragons dug themselves into a hole in the first half of Friday's District 6-2B clash with Clewiston, and ran out of time before they could climb out in a 32-26 loss at Cane Field. Clewiston (2-5 overall, 2-1) outplayed and outscored the Green Dragons 29-14 in the first half, but Lake Placid (2-5 overall, 1-2) outworked the Tigers in the final two quarters for a 12-3 edge. The clock wound down before the team could complete its comeback. "The guys showed some class," said Lake Placid coach Jason Holden. "We got down 15-0 early and it looked like it could get ugly. But they fought back and made a game of it. These guys never give up. "Their character and fight has appeared everywhere we go. That's just the kind of people they are. You know they're going to do what they can to get the job done and that's what happened tonight." Lake Placid was still gauging the competition Game Dragons come up short See LP, page 4B

JAIME ARON Associated PressARLINGTON, Texas J osh Hamilton kept telling h imself to focus, to be r eady, just in case Alex R odriguez hit the ball anyw here near center field and h e had the chance to grab t he final out of the AL c hampionship series. Then A-Rod struck out a nd Hamilton's emotions f lowed. His 11-year odyssey from t eenage, No. 1 overall pick t o drug addict to clean, s ober superstar had finally r eached the point every little b oy dreams about: He's g oing to the World Series. Better still, he's the main r eason the Texas Rangers a re ALchampions for the f irst time in their 38 years in A rlington and their 50 years a s a big league franchise. Texas beat the New York Y ankees 6-1 Friday night, w ith Hamilton reaching b ase in all four plate appeara nces and being named the M ost Valuable Player of the e ntire ALCS. "All throughout the game I was tearing up is this g oing to be it tonight? a nd thinking about where I w as, and everything I went t hrough, and how God was j ust faithful and to bring me o ut of it," Hamilton said. Ateam player and a d evout Christian, Hamilton w as more interested in shari ng the success than taking a ny individual glory. "I'm so excited for this t eam, for this city," he said. To be part of something l ike that means the world. I t's something that nobody c an take away from you." Hamilton hit .350 with f our homers in the series, b ut that hardly tells the s tory of his dominance. He hit a three-run homer i n his first at-bat in Game 1 a t Rangers Ballpark. When the series shifted to Y ankee Stadium, he hit a t wo-run homer in his first a t-bat there. He reached base in 15 of 2 8 plate appearances, gett ing seven hits and eight w alks. The Yankees were so s cared of him that five of t hose walks were intentional an ALCS record. Three came Friday night, w ith the first pitch of the f irst intentional pass so far o ff the plate that catcher J orge Posada couldn't catch i t, letting a runner go from s econd to third. "He's arguably the MVPof t his league," New York s tarter Phil Hughes said. You can't let a guy like that b eat you. So you put him on." At game's end, Hamilton pumped both fists in center field and raced in for the celebration by the mound. "I'll be honest, in the ninth A-Rod was up and I'm tearing up out there, holding back in case he hit the ball to me," he said. "I'm so excited, so blessed." Arecovering substance abuser, Hamilton can't take part in the traditional champagne bath. Last round, players doused him in ginger ale and this time they had even more of it on hand. Everyone had fun shaking up and squirting green plastic bottles of bubbly soda on the infield and in the clubhouse. "I love my teammates, I love them so much," Hamilton said during the onfield MVPceremony. "I don't want to talk about myself. I want to talk about them. We are here as a group. This group is here because they don't know how to fail." They may have learned from him. The can't-miss-kid nearly ruined his life much less his career with drugs and alcohol. Even after overcoming it all to become a big-league sensation, he battled through a brief relapse in spring training in 2009, then had to deal with it becoming public that summer. This season, he endured the thrill of having the best batting average in the majors and the agony of fighting to stay healthy, a remnant of all his years of tearing up his body. He missed 24 games in September because he fractured several ribs leaping into a wall in Minnesota. After only 11 at-bats to get ready for his first postseason, he hit .111 (2 for 18) with one RBI a run-scoring groundout in the division series against the Rays. There were fears the sore ribs had sapped the pop in his bat. Whoever makes it from the National League, the San Francisco Giants or Philadelphia Phillies, will certainly know he's at full strength now. "Well, he's a difference maker," Texas manager Ron Washington said. "I always talk to Josh about presence. It's not about the results, it's about his presence. His presence in our lineup makes everyone else better. His presence on the field makes everyone else better. "He did that. He was intentionally walked three times," Washington added. "He was shown a lot of respect, and because he was shown that respect, it sort of brought the level of intensity up on everyone else." www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, October 24, 2010Page 3B Some Risks Are Worth Taking.

Another battle came down to a few seconds for third place as Red Devil Dexter Griener (19:43) held off Green Dragon's John Komosa (19:47) and Benny Aguilar (19:48). Sebring would bring in the following two runners as Donavon White (20:04) and Marcelo Gori (20:19) went for sixth and seventh, respectively, while Thierry Alcindar (20:38) and David Garcia (20:39), both of Avon Park, came in virtually together for eighth and ninth. Lake Placid's final two scoring finishes came next in the form of Robert Komosa (20:43) and Joey Forest (20:44) to bring their point total, based upon finishing places, to 31. Alex Chung (20:59) an d Grey Lawrence (21:00) fi nished off Sebring's scorin g for a total of 39 with Jo sh Pent (21:54) and Ben Grav es (22:18) giving Avon Park a 49-point total. The three county team s will square off for one mo re tune-up Thursday at La ke Placid before heading off to their district meets the fo llowing week. Continued from 1B Cross Country cruises toward district meets hard to out-pace Avon Park's scrappy play. The first match stayed close until the score reached 15-13, and that's when Sebring's teamwork kicked in and ran away with the score. Avon Park fought back hard in the third, mostly due to the setting by M'Lynn McKibben, jumping out 5-1 and trading shots with the Streaks until the score reached 11-10 Sebring. But the Devils did not have enough momentum to keep out front. "There was some heavy hitting out there. I told them Sebring was playing a hard line. I am happy with how the girls played. Sebring is a competitor. It was a non-distirict game, and senior night. I told my girls to just get out there and have fun. We did," said Avon Park's head coach Stephanie Devlin. Both coaches are looking forward to district play, and both have hopes of advancing. "I am happy that we are heading into district playing like this," said Sinness. "The girls came in here tonight very focused and ready to play. We made a few mistakes but we came back. That's a good sign of tea m that can go a long way. Th is is the team that had a lull in the season, but has com e back strong. what we need ." "We are looking forward to district play," Devlin sai d. "We should advance past t he first and face Lake Placid in the semifinals. That's a 50/5 0 proposition. We beat the m once this year and they bet us once."

Head coach Joe Stacey says things have been somewhat quiet thus far in their short season as the team has focused primarily on fundraising to get the team fully up and running. The team won an earlier match at Lake Wales and placed 8th in an 18-team tournament as well. Scores from Friday's contest were not yet available at press time, but check out Wednesday's News-Sun for results. Bowling with Blue Streaks when Clewiston scored on a five-play drive just under two minutes into the game. An errant snap by the Green Dragons put the ball back in the Tigers'hands on the Lake Placid 6-yard line. Clewiston ran the ball into the end zone but the touchdown was called back on a penalty, backing the Tigers up to the 16. The Green Dragons held their ground and the Tigers' were forced into a 27-yard field goal attempt that went wide. Four plays later, Clewiston was back on offense, this time driving into the end zone and adding a two-point conversion for the 15-0 edge. "I made a couple of dumb calls on offense and we caught a couple bad breaks and that was huge for us," Holden said. "We knew they were a good football team. We knew they were big and we knew they were fast. "When Clewiston is good, they're great. When they're bad, they're still a pretty good football team." A7-play drive and a couple of penalties helped the Green Dragons'get on the scoreboard. Freshman running back AJ Gayle's 5-yard touchdown run with 26 seconds left in the quarter cut Clewiston's advantage to 15-6. Penalty calls in Lake Placid's favor and senior quarterback Kirk Veley helped move the ball down the field on the Green Dragon's next possession. Veley's quarterback sneak earned a first down, and two completed passes to Nevada Weaver moved the ball to the Clewiston 1-yard line. Veley's touchdown scramble and Gayle's two-point conversion run cut Clewiston's lead to 15-14 with 5:19 left in the half. It took the Tigers just over a minute to regain their two-touchdown lead, putting them up 22-14 with 4:15 left in the second quarter. Two minutes later, Clewiston scored again for the 29-14 lead. "From what I saw on film, Clewiston looked pretty fast," said senior wide receiver Nick Peragine. "We tried to judge their speed, but they were a little faster in the game and we had to adjust." Clewiston's 30-yard field goal put the Tigers up 32-14 three minutes into the second half before Lake Placid began its second comeback bid on the night. Veley's 33-yard pass to Peragine started a drive that ended with a 7-yard rushin g touchdown by Gayle for t he 32-20 score. The Green Drago ns moved within 32-26 on a 32-yard Veley touchdow n pass to Peragine with 3 .4 seconds left in the game. "We fight to the en d, regardless of the school ," Peragine said. "It's not ov er until it's over. If we play as hard next week as we did in the second half tonight, I think we can come aw ay with a victory. "They were good athlete s, but I feel like we came o ut in the second half and real ly pushed it and that proved a lot to our team."

Athree-and-out, with the h elp of a Jake Ryan sack, got t he ball back to open the seco nd quarter and another big p lay set up another score. Grubb launched one up the l eft sideline toward Jaquan W illiams who had a step on h is defender. Williams hauled it in m omentarily with an overt he-shoulder catch, only to s ee the ball bubble up and c areen forward. Reaching to get a hand on i t and keep it airborne, W illiams finally did pull it in a s he fell to the ground for a 4 7-yard completion at the f our-yard line. Clarke then bolted in for a nother Streak score for a 280 lead at 11:24 of the second q uarter. Adrive that took some t ime off the clock, but really h ad the Storm spinning its' w heels got Sebring the ball b ack on Celebration's 23 w ith Sutton breaking off a 1 3-yarder to the 10. After a loss on the next p lay, Grubb rolled left and f ound Lewis in the front corn er of the end zone, firing it t hrough a narrow window w ith Lewis getting both tipt oes in bounds for the score. Another three-and-out prov ided by the defense forced a nother punt, but this one C larke fielded at the 38 and w ent virtually untouched as h e zig-zagged through for the r eturn score and a 41-0 lead w ith 3:51 to go in the half. With the 40+ point lead h eading toward the second h alf was to mean a running c lock over the final two quart ers, but the Storm doused t hat momentarily when, after a rare sustained drive, a toss f rom three yards out made it 4 1-7 with 30 seconds to go. But the Streaks would get that 40-point lead back soon enough as, opening the third period, Howard Williams snatched hold of a bobbled hand off and took it in for a defensive score and up the lead to 48-7. Celebrations offense went back into dry-dock, but then so did Sebring's, for a series at least, as they soon had their first punt of the game. Apunt which Grubb buried the Storm at their own 10. But field position was of little matter as Faulk soon stepped in front of a pass for an interception and it was a matter of three Jaquan Williams runs that brought about Sebring's final score of the night for a 55-7 lead with 8:13 left in the contest. Celebration soon got their last score as well, with Torres-Bruno taking back the ensuing kickoff for a 95-yard touchdown, but when Sebring got the ball back, it was just a run-up-the-gut, milk-the-clock drive that ticked away the final minutes. "It meant a lot to get off to a fast start after the last couple weeks," Hamlin said. "We came out trying to get back on track and to execute. I'm proud of the way these kids were able to bounce back and play a complete game. "The offensive line did a great job in protection and the running game and the defense did a wonderful job," he continued. "We got a score n defense and in special teams, so everybody was contributing." Next up, Sebring returns home to welcome Auburndale, 23-19 winners over Tenoroc and 3-1 in district play, for Friday's Homecoming game.

By JOCELYN NOVECK APNational WriterNEWYORK You're a c ouple of great-looking, tale nted young actresses on the h ottest show on TV. You're a dults. So why NOTpose for s ome seriously saucy photos i n GQ, a magazine for adult m en? Well, it gets a little thorny w hen the show is "Glee," b eloved by 8and 9-yearo lds, and when you're posing a s a high-school girl in nothi ng but skimpy panties, s preading your legs sky-wide o n a locker room bench. Or s uggestively licking a lolly as y ou lean in the same s kimpy panties on a highs chool locker. Did the stars of "Glee" go t oo far? That's what critics and fans o f the show have been debati ng as the photo spread in G Q's November issue, featuri ng Lea Michele (the ambit ious Rachel) and Dianna A gron (Quinn, the once-pregn ant cheerleader), started circ ulating this week. Oh yes, m ale co-star Cory Monteith ( the quarterback Finn) is in t here, too but he remains c lothed (in fact, he's practic ally bundled up.) "I just wasn't impressed at a ll," said a disapproving E mily Martin, a mother in O ntario, Canada, and a selfp rofessed "huge Glee fan." "I guess I just don't unders tand why they chose to even p ose for these photos in the f irst place," Martin wrote in a n e-mail message. "I don't g et what they hope to gain by p utting themselves out there l ike that." Her feelings were echoed b y commentators as promin ent as Katie Couric, who d evoted an opinion segment o n Wednesday's "CBS E vening News" to the photo f lap. "I'm a Gleek," she began, s aying how she and her 14y ear-old daughter watch the s how every week. But she d ecried the photos, particularl y Michele's spread-eagle o ne, as "raunchy" and "unG lee-like," and concluded: I'm disappointed." "Utterly tone-deaf," c himed in Salon.com. "An e xplosion of cliched fetishism n ot seen outside the cheap H alloween costume aisles," w rote EW.com. Not surprisi ngly, though, the harshest c ommentary came from the P arents Television Council. "It borders on pedophilia," s aid Tim Winter, president of t he council. He called the s pread a "near-pornographic d isplay" especially the full-frontal crotch shot." As for GQ, which is enjoyi ng a burst of publicity, it t ook issue with the pedophilia r eference pointing out that A gron and Michele are 24, a nd Monteith is 28. "I think t hey're old enough to do what t hey want," said GQ's editor i n chief, Jim Nelson. In an e-mail to The A ssociated Press, Nelson e laborated: "I don't think it w ill surprise anyone that we k new what we were doing," h e wrote. "I think most peop le will take the pictures with t he wink and spirit of fun in w hich they were made." Nelson added: "What we w anted to celebrate in the s hoot and the story is (the s how's) playfulness, its w icked sense of fun, the c lever way it plays with its s elf-awareness. And it doesn't h ide from it sexual suggest iveness." No question about that. Glee," which airs at 8 p.m. E astern on Fox, frequently d eals with mature themes: T een pregnancy, homosexuali ty, the loss of virginity. Some p arents bristled last season at a scene where Finn ejaculated i n a hot tub. And this season, t he cheerleaders Santana and B rittany were not only shown m aking out on a bed one of t hem referred to a hard-core l esbian sex act. And yet, in a dilemma for p arents, kids as young as 8 a nd 9 adore the show, drawn in by its wonderfully energetic and witty musical numbers. For them, it's a much cooler, hipper "High School Musical." If one had any doubt as to the youthfulness of the fan base, they need only have witnessed the legions of squealing tweens at last spring's "Glee" concert tour. The show's creators didn't quite expect that at first. "We didn't know 9-yearolds would like it so much," co-creator and executive producer Brad Falchuk told the APin May. "We didn't know the geriatric set would like it so much, either. I wish we knew how we did it." It wasn't clear how "Glee" producers felt about the GQ photos: Fox denied the AP's request for comment. In any case, Nelson, at GQ, said that Fox knew about the shoot, but didn't get involved in the concept. "It was up to the individual actors and the reps for the actors to approve the concept," he said. Apublicist for Michele did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the actress, who is the breakout star of "Glee" and the subject of the raciest GQ photos the one with spread legs, and the lollipop-licking photo. Nor did a representative for Monteith. Apublicist for Agron would only confirm the authenticity of a posting by the actress on tumbler.com: The photos, she said, "do not represent who I am." "They asked us to play very heightened versions of our school characters," wrote Agron, whose poses weren't nearly as explicit as Michele's, but still had her in tiny schoolgirl skirts intentionally raised up. "At the time, it wasn't my favorite idea, but I did not walk away." "If you are hurt or these photos make you uncomfortable, it was never our intention," she said. "And if your 8-year-old has a copy of our GQ cover in hand, again I am sorry. "But I would have to ask, how on earth did it get there?" At least one parent interviewed for this article agreed with Agron that it was the parent's responsibility to co ntrol what children see. "Parents need to filter wh at comes into their house," sa id Vivian Manning-Schaffel, a 42-year-old mother of two in New York City and a freque nt blogger on parenting issue s. "It's up to parents to be cle ar about what is what." As for the GQ photo s, Manning-Schaffel added: "I don't understand what all t he hoopla is about. If I we re those actresses, I'd be o ut there posing in those outf its myself! They're both go rgeous." www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, October 24, 2010Page 9B ENTERTAINMENT Steamy Glee' GQ picture spread has many, well, steaming

Burrowing wolf spiders (Geolycosa turricola) are nocturnal spiders that can sometimes be l ocated by shining a flashlight into a sandy area, where these creatures m ake their homes. Their eyes r eflect the light and shine back at y ou. Since we are surrounded by s crub in Highlands County, these a rachnids are somewhat common. T heir burrows, or homes, are round h oles located on the ground in s andy areas. Even though you may s ee hundreds of these burrows, f inding the resident isn't quite so s imple. They are extremely reclus ive creatures and don't come out v ery often. When they do venture out of t heir burrows, it's either to hunt or m ate. Instead of constructing webs t o entangle prey, they hunt using t heir excellent vision, sense of t ouch, strong legs and large jaws. W olf spiders have three rows of e yes. The top row consists of two m edium-sized eyes. The two large eyes are located in the middle row and the bottom row sports four smaller eyes. Males begin looking for females when they reach their reproductive age, but die after they mate. Most species of spiders live for a year, but burrowing wolf spiders can live twice that long. They do have silk within their bodies, which they use to apply on the top of their burrows. This helps the hole from caving in. When constructing their burrows, they haul the sand out of the hole with their mouths and dispose of it in a nearby location. The hole is about eight inches deep and is slightly wider at the bottom. This area is used by the spider to turn around, eat and even lay some eggs. When the eggs hatch, the young stay in the burrow until the exoskeleton, or outer protective frame, hardens and it can fend for itself. Then it's time for the juvenile to build their own burrow. The new home will be enlarged as the spider grows and requires more space. They have the ability to survive even if they don't eat for a couple of days because of their extremely slow metabolism. This is an important characteristic for them since they spend so much time in their burrows and don't ever travel far from home. Their comfy residences allow the spiders to adjust their temperature. Since they live in such an extreme plant community and it gets so hot, they need to be able to find a way to survive such high temperatures. The creatures simply relocate within their burrows. If it is the hottest part of the day and the soil temperature has reached an uncomfortable level, the spider will simply move down to the bottom of its burrow to stay cool. When the night temperatures cool the soil, the arachnid moves up toward the top to reach the warmer soil. Since the burrow is underground, the humidity within keeps the spider from dying of dehydration and drying out. When they do brave the elements and venture out of their safe havens, they depend on camouflage for protection. They don't have the colorful or "flashy" appearance of many other types of spiders. They blend in quite well with the habita t they live in. There are about 40,000 differen t spider species in the world. They rank seventh in total species diver sity among all other groups of organisms. They reside on every continent except for Antarctica. They live in just about every habi tat except the ocean. These air breathing, eight legge d arthropods are all equipped with fangs and they may be one of the most feared creatures on the plane t. But the truth of the matter is that most spiders only bite humans in self-defense and few of these bite s produce anything worse than that of a mosquito or bee. Even the most feared spiders such as brown recluse and black widows are shy creatures and only bite when threatened. For all the arachnophobics out there, be comforted by the fact th at these burrowing wolf spiders are reclusive, shy and in general, not dangerous to humans. Next time you're out walking at night, take a flashlight with you and shine it in the sandy areas. You might just be amazed when tiny red eyes shine back at you. Happy Halloween!

Special to the News-Sun Dove award winners and t op selling recording artists, B ig Daddy Weave and Aaron S hust, along with Andy Kirk, w ill be bringing their pass ionate and elevating live p erformances to 45 cities a cross the country while on t he Hope Restored Tour from A ugust 27 through Nov. 14. The tour will make a local s top at the Circle in downt own Sebring on Friday, Nov. 1 2. Sponsored by Wycliffe B ible Translators affiliate, T he Seed Company, the tour w ill raise awareness for its i nnovative program O neVerse which provides B ible translations for all lang uages across the globe. With five No. 1 singles u nder their belts, Big Daddy W eave's reputation for r ecording songs dear to the h earts of thousands is e clipsed only by their reputat ion for bringing incredible h eart and passion to each and e very live performance. Big D addy Weave's live performa nces are one-of-a-kind exper iences that join the artist and a udience in a unique, singul ar voice and the Hope R estored tour expands that e xperience even further for t he band. "We are so excited to be a p art of this amazing season o f evenings on the Hope R estored Tour," said Big D addy Weave lead singer M ike Weaver. "I look forw ard to sharing the stage a round the incredible and e ver timely cause of translati ng the most important mess age of all time into every l anguage on our planet." Also appearing on the H ope Restored Tour is threet ime Dove Award winning a rtist Aaron Shust, who is best known for the song "My Savior, My God," the second most played CCM song of the decade behind "I Can Only Imagine" by MercyMe. The simple tune he penned for his local church took radio by storm, topping six different charts at once. "My Savior, My God" helped earn Aaron a trio of Dove Awards for Song of the Year, Songwriter of the Year and New Artist of the Year. It also propelled the Georgiabased singer into the spotlight and onto the road in a whirlwind of concerts, sharing the stage with the likes of MercyMe, Casting Crowns and Michael W. Smith. While on the Hope Restored Tour Aaron will be performing songs from his latest release, Take Over, and sharing the album's central message of submission and relinquishing control to God. "One of the common threads that shows up in a lot of these songs is that we can't achieve anything from our own efforts certainly not salvation," Shust said. "We can work out our salvation, but it's only through what Christ has done on the cross that we have any hope." Rounding out the tour is 22-year-old Nashville-based singer, Andy Kirk whose first single "Love Is the Only Thing," from his debut album, Wake Up My Soul hit No. 1 on Christian Radio Weekly's Global AC indie chart, August 1, 2010. Before being approached by 1CN Records/Provident to record Wake Up My Soul Kirk lead music for one of America's largest churches, LifeChurch in Oklahoma City, singing in front of over 3,000 -10,000 people a weekend. Kirk now serves as an Artist in Residence at Hopepark Church in Nashville in addition to keeping up with his nation-wide touring schedule.

DearAbby: I have a problem with people in our church congregation who want to greet me with a kiss. Please advise me on how to handle this delicate situation. I don't want to hurt any feelings; these are nice people. However, lips carry germs, and I have a weak immune system. I have tried extending my hand in greeting, but one man smooched me anyway, saying, "I don't shake hands with girls!" Abby, I'm 70 and hardly a "girl," and I didn't appreciate his rejection of my handshake. Do you think it will work if I tell him and others that I have a contagious disease that causes men's lips to dry up and fall off? Deanna In Florida DearDeanna: No. It would be more to the point to tell your fellow church members that you have a fragile immune system and are susceptible to viruses which is why you prefer to shake hands. It's the truth. And if the man who smooched you continues to be a problem, talk to your clergyperson about it. DearAbby: I have met my soul mate. She has the same name as my ex-wife. How do we remedy this? It is driving me nuts! Scott in Washington state DearScott: Remember when you were in school and there were several students in a class who shared the same name? Some of them would adopt a nickname. If it's OK with your soul mate, she can certainly do the same. But consider the upside for you. The fact that your new lady's and exwife's names match guarantees you won't ever slip and call her by the wrong one. DearAbby: I am hoping you might have a suggestion on how to handle cigarette smokers who ignore my requests to not smoke in my direction. I have severe allergies, and I also suffer from dry eye syndrome. Even after I have told smokers that their addiction worsens my condition they continue, assuming that by cracking a window the room is ventilated. Frustrated in Turlock, Calif. DearFrustrated : I do have a sugges tion, one that is time-honored and effective. Safeguard your health by avoiding anyone who contin ues to smoke after having been told that it negatively affects you. DearAbby: Ayear ago, I married an old and dear friend. We have both been through marriage, divorce and difficult relationships. At last, I finally found the person I was meant to be with. My husband's parents have been gone for several years, but I was fortunate enough to know them befor e they died. We went to visit their graves the day after our wedding, and I placed two pennies I had been saving o n their headstone one date d 1968 for me and one dated 1963 for him. Last week I received sev eral pennies in change and dropped them into my wallet. When I fished them out later, I was delighted to see that one was from 1968 and the other was from 1963! I believe in my heart it's his parents'way of telling u s that they are happy we are together. Lucky Bride in Mai ne DearLucky Bride: And I can't think of a more mean ingful wedding gift you could have received from your late in-laws. May you and your soul mate enjoy many happy, healthy years together. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069. We checked our watches a gain.One more time we w alked over to the arrival b oard. Nothing had changed.The f light of our son and daught er-in-law was on time, but t here was still no sign of t hem. We wondered why the f light number for the time a nd originating location didn 't match the one they'd g iven us?As the minutes t icked by, we decided to stop c hecking the unchanging b oard and focus on the arrivi ng passengers. Finally, there they were! W e fell into each others' a rms for hugs and kisses.All c oncerns evaporated as we c laimed the moment promi sed when we had made our p lans. That's a concept I keep l earning over and over when i t comes to God's promises. Abraham may have quest ioned God throughout the y ears about his promise of a s on, but the Bible says in R omans 4: 20 & 21, NKJV, He did not waver at the p romise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform." When we are hanging onto a promise of God, we must be careful not to keep watching the clock.The present moments are just as important in his plan as that special moment for which we are waiting. It's easy to get distracted by the clock that we set for the fulfillment of our promise.When it doesn't match God's, we become discouraged and question if we heard right. When that happens, our hopes droop like a flower without water. But, if we go back to his Word and soak up those promises that had originally offered hope, it's like adding water to the droopy flowers.Our spirits lift like the flower heads in full bloom of faith again. Words of encouragement in Hebrews 10:23, NKJV, say, "Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful." The flight number we held in our hand didn't match the board because a shuttle flight to the major airport changed the number.We didn't understand it at the time, but it made perfect sense later. We can't always figure out "mismatched" expectations; but, we can be assured that God is faithful to his promises. Our job is to release our hold on the clock, enjoy the present with anticipation of the future while being content to have him turn the hands of time. So, don't miss the moment.Selah Jan Merop of Sebring is a NewsSun correspondent and an award-winnin g writer. www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, October 24, 2010Page 15B PARANORMALR ACTIVITY(Katie Featherson2:15 4:15 7:15 9:15REDPG13(Bruce Willis,John Malkovich)2:00 4:30 7:00 9:30LIFE AS WE PG13 KNOW IT(Katherine Heigl)2:00 4:30 7:00 9:30THE SOCIALPG13NETWORK(Jesse Eisenberg)2:00 4:30 7:00 9:30YOU AGAINPG(Betty White,Kristen Bell)2:15 4:15 7:15 9:15EASY APG13(Emma Stone)2:15 4:15 7:15 9:15 The NewFAIRMOUNTCINEMA63750 US 27 N.

S o far I have said no, mainly because p utting a razor in the hands of a 10y ear-old doesn't seem safe. Though she i s small for her age and not even close t o starting puberty, her legs really are q uite hairy and she gets teased about t hem sometimes. I don't want to prom ote vanity, but I hate to see her selfc onscious over something that is simple t o fix. Is it totally inappropriate for a g irl her age to be shaving her legs? If s o, what would be a more appropriate a ge? Also, can you recommend a particu lar brand of razor, or should we use c hemical hair removers and avoid razors a ltogether? A: Your daughter is entering a time in h er life when self-consciousness b ecomes problematic and other children c an be extremely cruel. The cruelty is a ctually a way of compensating for o ne's own insecurities. Given that this is t he personal and social reality your d aughter is now dealing with, I encoura ge you to let her shave her legs. Having never shaved my legs, I consulted with my wife, Willie, on this. She recommends that you first show your daughter how to use hair-removing cream and then provide her with an electric razor until she is older. I use an electric for evening touch-ups and recommend a good rotary. Stay away from inexpensive off-brands. They aren't worth it. Q: Our 10-year-old daughter goes back and forth between our house and her mom's. Our homes are run very differently. Bio-Mom gives her everything she wants (cell phone, expensive computer, TVand DVD in her room, etc). In our home we have chores and rules. We also discipline her, especially when she is disrespectful, which is often. Just recently, after an up-and-down day, we listened in on a phone call between her and her mother. Her mother told her she would call later and tell us a lie about why she needed her to come home right away. They laughed at how they were going to pull the wool over our eyes. Any advice? A: Let's be realistic. Will it be possible for you to have a rational discussion about these issues with this very immature mother? Nope. Can you, therefore, hope to solve this child's disrespect of adults who act like adults? Nope. Nonetheless, should you punish her when the disrespect occurs? Absolutely. Never give up. Never surrender. Understand, however, that while discipline is appropriate, it's not going to solve the problem. There are, in fact, some problems that just aren't solvable. They are, at best, tolerable. I think you're going to have to figure out a way to tolerate this until your daughter grows up, which may another thirty years. In the meantime, my best advice is "grin and bear it." Let a girl shave her legs if she feels the desire Living With Children John Rosemond
LIVING 16B PAGE News-Sun Sunday, October 24, 2010 By Emilie Le Beau, Chicago Tribunealloween is the perfect time of yearto host a night of ghost stories and scary movies. Yourfriends can take turns telling spooky tales about haunted houses and lost souls. But while most people believe there are no such things as ghosts, others say they've seen the real thing and actually have tried searching forspirits. Ghost researcherLeslie Rule is the authorof "Coast to Coast Ghosts: True Stories of Hauntings Across America" (Andrews McMeel Publishing, $14.95) and has visited haunted houses, hotels and schools. She says she believes ghosts don't realize they have died and that's why they're still lurking about. "I (think of) a ghost like a trapped animal," she says. "It may feel like a little bit of a nightmare to them." And since ghosts might not realize they are dead, Rule says they cling to places that meant something to them. Abeloved house orthe spot where they died are types of places that attract the afterlife. Rule believes ghosts are everywhere, and says you might not realize you've seen a ghost. "They can appearso real and solid," she says. "One way to tell is if they're wearing out-of-date orout-of-season clothes. At the Alamo, there is a ghost that can be seen there that is wearing a black rain coat that is dripping wet even on sunny days." But ghosts aren't always solid-looking people, says ghost researcherRichard Crowe, who gives tours of haunted hot spots in the Midwest. Crowe says ghosts can be present through sounds, smells orfeelings. Phantom music from long ago orthe lingering smell of an old perfume also could mean a ghost is present, he says. Acold spot is anothersign of a spirit, Rule says. She also believes objects are likely to disappearand animals may act funny if a ghost is lurking. "Also, (tapping) on the wall, tap waterthat turns on and off, lights that turn themselves off," she says. But you could still bump into a ghost even if yourhouse isn't haunted, Crowe says. He says ghosts aren't limited to spooky-looking old homes or empty cemeteries. "Ghosts are everywhere," he says. "They can be in stores, parks, churches, anywhere people are."

It's OK to be afraid of ghosts; scary stuff isn't fun for everyone. But if you're too afraid to sleep without bright lights, ghost researcher Leslie Rule says you should remember you're stronger than a ghost. "I have never come across a case where a ghost has physically harmed someone," she says. Rule says not wanting to see a ghost is a good way to keep ghosts away: "I have cases where people have seen ghosts and asked them not to show themselves again." Also, have a scientific attitude. Ghost researcher Richard Crowe says kids should consider the paranormal a new frontier of science. Using science instead of your imagination might help quash your fears. Ready to snoop for spooks? Here are some tips:Find a happy spot:Ghosts often haunt places they loved during their lives, says ghost researcher Richard Crowe. Is there an old dance hall or theater in your town? Research your neighborhood at your local library for clues as to where the ghosts may be lurking, Crowe says.Chat with your neighbors:Ask older neighbors for details on neighborhood happenings from years ago. Find out whether they can remember which areas are rumored to be haunted.Have a snap attack:Take lots of pictures and look for clues when the photos develop, Crowe says. You can use any type of camera to take pictures of areas you suspect are haunted. When the pictures are developed, look for fog or flashes of light as evidence of ghosts giving off electricity.Save your money:Don't waste your money on ghost-hunting gadgets, Crowe says. Some ghost-hunting devices claim they can sense ghosts based on electrical currents. But most city areas are already filled with electrical currents from TVs, phones and other appliances.
