Recently, the Code Enforcement Department was reassigned to be part of the police department, and moved into the APPD in just the last few months. "It was like coming home," said Code Enforcement Officer Greg Warner. Warner had served on the Avon Park police force for 20 years before becoming a code enforcement officer, and since the department has been integrated and moved into the police department, he feels that is a positive thing. "The officers have welcomed us into their department. They have mentioned several times that they are glad to have us here," Warner said. "That makes you feel good about your job." "It's like a family atmosphere," said Code Enforcement Officer Marnita English. "I feel a part of a team effort, and I know that there are several people out there to lend a hand if it is needed now. The move has been a positive one," English added. The APPD had some budget space and spent some of that on updating worn out Avon Park code enforcement has new home, equipment and outlook News-Sun photo by ED BALDRIDG E Avon Park's Code Enforcement Officers Greg Warner, Janet Shields and Marnita English show of their new uniforms and new vehicles in front of their new digs at the Police Department.

It is, however, absolutely perfect for those individuals who love Halloween and macabre tales about eyeballs and gooey stuff. Highlands Little Theatre is presenting its inaugural Ghost Tours fund raising event tonight and Saturday. Guides will conduct groups of up to 20 people on walking tours of some of Sebring's ghostliest haunts. They promise a harrowing evening skulking through Sebring's dark side. Eerie, maybe fictional stories involving dead bodies, strange happenings and wailing women will be interspersed with real history and actual reported apparitions. For example, Jim McCollum was reportedly found haunting his office, Harder Hall's halls are said to be crowded with ethereal guests, and even the News-Sun has a story of its own. Too small to accommodate an entire ghost, the newspaper does have a bloody hand.

Dr. David Hamilton, minister and native of Mobile, Ala., has traveled the world with his beautiful collection of Biblical, hand-made creations that express and portray the "pattern" of God. Hamilton is a skilled general contractor and architectural designer. For the last 19 years, Hamilton has done what he fills he has been called to do by God. Hamilton's divine call has lead him to study, teach and construct images from his passion. "All of these are han dmade," explained Hamilto n said of his enormous colle ction of biblical artifacts th at take countless hours of lab or to construct. "It's not what I do, it's who I am." The traveling pieces, as Hamilton calls them, ha ve been all over the country as well as the world.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING There are almost as many different descriptions of a town clerk's function as there are forms of government. The three municipal clerk positions in Highlands County are excellent examples of this, because no two towns select or task their clerks in exactly the same way. In Avon Park, the clerk is hired by and answers directly to the city manager. In Sebring, the clerk is an elected position. In Lake Placid, the clerk serves as a department head and reports directly to the council and mayor. Duties of town clerks, while overlapping in many respects, also vary greatly. Cheryl Tietjen, who has been Avon Park's city clerk for three years, sent the News-Sun a list of 18 specific duties for which she is responsible, adding the warning that there is a final category "other duties as assigned" that often lengthens the list. "At least 50 percent of my work relates to council meetings," Tietjen said. She explained that the Avon Park city clerk's work ranges from handling the city manager's mail to being responsible for all municipal elections; from ordering supplies to being the prime liaison between council, manager and staff; from being responsible for all of the city's records, to being in charge of renting and maintaining the Community Center. The clerk is also responsible for processing and monitoring invoices for payment, coordinating all official city functions, filling in for the city manager in his absence and is the custodian of the city's official seal. Arlene Tuck, who has served as Lake Placid's town clerk since 1988, saw the clerk's duties expand as the town grew. Even so, she said, the town has added only one position to the administration staff in the years since. When Tuck started the only computer at town hall was only used to generate the water bills, now computers are used for almost everything. "There is a lot more you have to keep up with now," she said. The clerk's duties in Lake Placid correspond to those in Avon Park, from overseeing municipal elections to keeping council minutes and noticing meetings. In Lake Placid it is the clerk who prepares the council meeting agenda. Currently, the clerk reports directly to the mayor, but should Lake Placid voters change the charter in the upcoming election, the clerk would instead report directly to the council, which would have the authority to hire or fire the individual in the position. Sebring is different again. It's city clerk is elected to a three-year term of office. Like Lake Placid, the clerk's position has evolved since the early days when the town clerk was responsible for everything from emptying parking meters to running the town's day-to-day business. Kathy Haley has served as city clerk since 1996. "It can be a demanding job," she said, "but no two days are the same." Today the position has two titles city clerk and treasurer. That means the position has some financial authority, as bills have to be vetted by the clerk before going to the council for approval. Haley is one of only two Sebring officials (the council president is the other) who is authorized to approve and Page 2ANews-SunFriday, October 29, Published every Sunday, Wednesday & Friday at 2227 U.S. 27 South € Sebring, Florida 33870 A Harbor Point Media Company OFFICE: 2227 U.S. 27 South, Sebring, FL 33870 OFFICE HOURS: 8 a.m.-5 p.m, Monday-Friday PHONE: 863-385-6155 MAIN FAX NUMBER: 863-385-1954 NEWSROOM FAX NUMBER: 863-385-2453 POSTMASTER: Send address change to: News-Sun, 2227 U.S. 27 S., Sebring, FL 33870 USPS … ISSN 0163-3988 Periodical postage paid at Sebring, FL and additional entry office(s)CIRCULATION SUNDAY, WEDNESDAY AND FRIDAY EDITIONS: If you do not receive your home delivered newspaper by 6 a.m., please phone the circulation department before 10 a.m. on Wednesday and Friday publication days, and before 11 a.m. on Sunday publication days and a replacement copy will be delivered to you.

Noah's Fall Festival is Saturday in AP Associated PressMIAMI Four men f ace federal drug smugg ling and drug conspirac y charges after the Coast G uard found about 800 p ounds of marijuana on a b oat off Miami. According to the U.S. A ttorney's Office in M iami, Customs and B order Protection agents s potted a suspicious vess el from the air on Oct. 2 1. The Coast Guard was d ispatched to the 45-foot b oat's location about 2 m iles east of Miami. The officers boarded t he vessel and found the d rugs in the forward c abin.

The three men were a rrested when they a rrived to pick up the m arijuana. 800 pounds of marijuana found on boat off Miami


The story is that a young pressman, o vercome with grief when his beloved g irlfriend threw him over for a bass t ournament fisherman, tried to end his l ife by sticking his head into the red i nk roller. At the last instant he thought of his m other's chocolate chip cookies and t ried to pull away. The roller caught his hand, drawing f irst it, and then the rest of him, in i nch by anguished inch. Into the gigantic, crushing press he w ent, the rollers the size of small logs a nd the noise so loud, no one heard his s creams. Later, they scraped off what was left o f him. But the hand was never found. Now, on every anniversary of that d ay, a ghostly red hand-print appears a bove the fold on the front of the L iving section. And almost every night, while worki ng alone, people hear a scratching i nside the press, like a hand trying to c rawl its way out, as red paint drips, l ike blood, on the floor. Naw not really. That's made up f rom beginning to end. But it is an example of what is in s tore on the tour. Vanessa Logsdon, one of the organize rs, warns that tickets are going fast. T wo extra tours at 7:30 and 8:15 p .m. were added for tonight because t he first two tours sold out. Saturday's tours are at 7 and 7:15 p .m. All tours begin at the HLT's parki ng lot. Logsdon says the walk about takes r oughly an hour and encompasses about a mile. "Wear comfortable shoes," she said. There will be a concession stand. Among the 25 volunteers making this spooky event come to life are popular local actors Cameron Reck and Glenn Lorandeau, who have come down from college to be guides.

California, Nevada, Florida and Arizona remain the nation's foreclosure hotbeds, accounting for 19 of the top 20 metropolitan areas with the highest foreclosure rates between July and September, foreclosure listing firm RealtyTrac Inc. said Thursday. Those states saw housing values surge during the housing boom years. When the boom ended, values collapsed and foreclosures soared. But the latest data show that many of the metro areas in those states saw a decline in the number of households receiving foreclosure-related filings, while many cities in other states saw a spike in foreclosure activity. "The epidemic is spreading from the states at t he ground zero of the forecl osure problems out into are as that hadn't been previous ly affected," said Rick Sharg a, a senior vice president at RealtyTrac. The trend is the late st sign that the nation's for eclosure crisis is worsenin g as homeowners facing hig h unemployment, slow jo b growth and uncertain ty about home prices contin ue to fall behind on their mo rtgage payments. In all, 133 out of 20 6 metropolitan areas with at least 200,000 residen ts posted an annual increase in foreclosure activity in t he three months ended Sep t. 30, RealtyTrac said. The firm tracks notic es for defaults, schedul ed home auctions and hom e repossessions warnin gs that can lead up to a hom e eventually being lost to foreclosure. Eleven out of the nation 's 20 largest metropolit an areas saw foreclosure acti vity increase in the thi rd quarter compared to t he same period last year. T he Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevu e metro area registered t he sharpest annual increase. News-Sun file photo Ghost stories about Harder Hall have been passed around Sebring for generations.

"I call them God's holy o bjects. I can't take credit for t he design because it's B iblical...God gave us the p lan. They are replicas of w hat's in heaven, they are p atterns of the invisible," H amilton said. Bishop Benjamin Carter, o f Bethel Pentecostal H oliness Church of Avon P ark, was blown away at not o nly Hamilton's pieces but t he message that is within the c ollection. "I've seen this three times b efore and still notice somet hing different every time," s aid Carter. The Mishkan (Hebrew for T abernacle) Ministries is d esigned to re-create and a llow the invisible objects of G od's house to be made visib le on Earth so that God's c hildren can see and unders tand the pattern of heaven, a ccording to Hamilton. Many of the pieces H amilton has created are e stimated to be worth mill ions. Alarge lamp in the coll ection, for example, is worth o ver $1.7 million. The mercy seat," which is the lid t o Ark of the Covenant, cont ains more than 4,000 pounds o f gold. "Here's the lesson: God's h ouse is the most valuable thing on the earth. You're the most valuable thing and to understand how valuable you are God says here's the pattern of it.'God put the Ten Commandments in the house beneath the mercy seat, his mercy is the most valuable thing on the earth," Hamilton explained. Hamilton does not teach about the Tabernacle itself, but the pattern of the Tabernacle to allow the world to understand His vision. Bishop Carter was eager to get Hamilton to Highlands County so that residents could share and know the vision and this ministry. Carter, Pastor Arlan Sapp of the Restoration Church, and several other local ministers all pulled together to get Hamilton to the area. "It's stunning," said Sapp. Both Sapp and Carter are excited for the community to be apart of the Mishkan Ministry. "Seeing it is a whole different thing, I think everyone will be blown away," said Carter. The TabernacleExperiencing the Pattern will be on display through Saturday. Each night, Hamilton will be delivering his lecture. The Restoration Center will be open at 6:30 p.m. today, followed by Hamilton's ministry at 7:30 p.m. On Saturday the center opens at 1 p.m. the ministry will begin at 3 p.m. For more information, contact Bishop Carter at 2144081.

W e have sympathy for people who work in governm ent these days, either as e lected officials or hired e mployees.In an era of accountability in triplic ate, so many new rules, regulations, g uidelines, mandates, ordinances and l aws have been added to the books that e very work day has to be filled with d etailed reading, second guessing, and s tress. We have empathy for the frustration s o many public servants feel as they find p roblem solving more and more complic ated and under greater and greater s crutiny. What we worry about, however, is h ow that easy-to-understand-irritation m ay lead individuals to rationalize bad d ecisions. "Close enough for government work," a lways a scary phrase especially in t he military or NASA becomes d ownright terrifying. Paradoxically, those governments that s erve smaller populations where peop le generally know each other are m ore at risk for this problem. It is simply too easy to lose sight of b oundaries when you are surrounded by p eople who think as you do and you are s ure you are right. In small governments, elected offic ials generally don't define themselves a s politicians. They see themselves as good citizens doing good deeds. It becomes easy for council or board members to believe the end justifies the means, or develop a sense of entitlement. It happens slowly, this slide away from democratic process to oligarchy. For example, a board member says to himself, "What would it matter if I ask so and so how he's going to vote on this zoning question? After all, we'll be discussing it at the meeting next week." And so he colludes. Or the shop foreman says to hersel "It's only 12 gallons of gas a week, and I didn't get a raise." And so she steals. Or the city council that can't be bothered to hold public meetings, "This so and so is best for the city, and anyway, they elected us to decide." Thereby becoming a junta. But, that's how good people bend out of shape and government loses its way. It is unreflective leaders who breed mistrust, and the lack of trust is as corrosive to our quality of life as battery acid is to a shirt huge holes appear with each defensive lie, each snub of public input. Painful as it is, we have to remember the vast number of laws and ordinances are written to correct specific wrongs to prevent so and so from ever happening again. But it does happen again. It is happening here. Small drop by painful drop. Within this last year, for example, one city council cut off a petitioner as she began to speak, telling her it had already decided the fate of her request that nothing she could say would change things. This, despite the fact she was only asking for a letter in support of a grant application. Another city council muffled opposition recently by placing an issue of sharp dispute repeatedly on the council agenda, but as its last item, which was always reached so late at night the council chamber was largely empty and the council pleading exhaustion, ducked discussion. Another bad sign: Why is it so difficult to get public records in Highlands County? We citizens do bear some responsibility for the growing abyss between our governments and ourselves. We've morphed from detached and uncaring to engaged and enraged without any warning. Expecting perfection, demanding attention, wanting confrontation we contribute to the problem. Of course the real issue is how to solve the problem. The solution, unfortunately, will come slowly, one person at a time. Each elected official, each city worker, each citizen has to decide for himself or for herself how to behave and what choices to make. Don't look to someone else for rescue. We have to rescue ourselves. We have to rescue ourselves "What's the matter? You seem agitated." "Every year, the wife and I and the neighbors dress up for a Halloween bash. But the wife won't let me buy a costume this year. She says our dough is so tight I have to make my own." "There's no shame in that. Some of the cleverest costumes are homemade. They can be satirical and mock current events." "That's what I thought. I figured I'd mock our lousy economy by dressing up as a hobo. I was going to wear old, torn clothes, but the wife put a stop to it." "She stopped you because it would be rude to make fun of people who live on the streets?" "No, because I planned to wear my regular clothes. I haven't been able to afford a new pair of pants since the economy tanked in 2008." "Surely you have other satirical ideas to choose from." "I came up with an idea to poke fun at the falling dollar by dressing up as a large bill and then falling repeatedly to the ground, but the wife didn't like that, either." "That would be a wonderful way to mock out-of-control government spending, which is killing the dollar's value. How could she not like that costume?" "She figured that I came up with it so I could consume adult beverages all night without her finding out. It's hard to slip anything past the wife." "Sorry to hear that." "I tried some other angles. I told the wife I was going to dress up as the U.S. economy. I was going to wear a downward-pointing red arrow that repeatedly falls flat on its back, but the wife figured I came up with that one ..." "To conceal your consumption of adult beverages?" "You're good, pal. By that point, I figured I'd try something simple. I decided to shape my hair into a mullet and pretend I was an 80s pop star, but the wife would n't go for it." "Why not?" "I haven't been able to afford a haircut in two yea rs and my hair alread y looks like the mul let of an 80s pop star." "Since you already have a frumpy mullet haircut and clothes that are old and torn perhaps you could toss on a suit coat and go as a Wall Street banker-beggar? You can satirize the billions in handouts we've given to th e biggest beggars on the plan et." "I may be broke I may have a frumpy haircut and wear torn clothes but I have my pride. I'd never want to pretend I was anything as low as a Wall Stree t banker." "Well, there has to be some costume you can crea te yourself that is fun and funny and that makes some kind of interesting point. Maybe you could go as the future? You could wear a nice suit and tie and preten d government avarice is unde r control, the economy has recovered and you finally have a high-paying dream job!" "Or I could wear my frumpy mullet haircut and clothes that are torn to show that the future could contin ue looking like the present at least until the government stops hindering the economy and preventing th e recovery from getting real traction.!" "All right, then, how about this: Why don't you dress up as an unemployment counselor?" "An unemployment coun selor?" "It may not be the most glamorous costume in the world, but can you think of a better way to pretend you have a job?" Tom Purcell, a freelance writer is also a humor columnist for the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, and is nationally syndicated exclusively by Cagle Cartoons newspaper syndicate. E-mail Tom at Dressing up in down times Guest Column Tom Purcell W orried about life for grandchildren E ditor: For the past 18 months, T eabaggers (Republicans) h ave been worried about t heir grandchildren and how t he national debt will affect t heir lives. Lately, I have begun to w orry about my 13 grandc hildren and how the t akeover of Congress by the Tealiban" will affect their l ives. Teabaggers have stated t hat they will "phase out" S ocial Security, Medicare, M edicaid and the VA. This m eans that my grandchildren w ill have no safety net as t hey reach old age or receive b enefits for fighting in endl ess wars. The Teabaggers are united i n the fact that they want to d o away with the minimum w age so that my grandchild ren will have to work for p erhaps as little as 30 cents a n hour, the wage the A merica corporations (who a re outsourcing jobs at an a larming rate, ably assisted b y the American Chamber of C ommerce) pay foreign w orkers. Because my grandchildren w ill not be able to earn a living wage, they will be unable to afford a house, car, or save for their old age. They will not be able to afford health insurance even if the insurance companies would even consider them. Should my grandchildren be let go from their low-paying jobs, they will have no redress, because all regulation on businesses has been suspended. They will be called lazy, stupid, spoiled, or drug dependent and be unable to rely on unemployment insurance for the basics, because that too has been declared unlawful. Lastly and worst of all to me, a teacher of 25 years, there will be no public education. Glen Beck and the Teabaggers don't want to pay any taxes, especially for middle-class and poor children to go to school, so home schooling will be declared the law of the land. Only the rich will be educated because they can afford to send their children to private school. There will be a rich class of educated people and a poor class of uneducated people. The middle class will be annihilated. I am worried and frightened. The same kind of thing happened in Afghanistan. The Taliban took over and did away with anything that made life better for its citizens. I am anxious that the "Tealiban" is planning the same for my grandchildren. Millie Grime SebringEnjoying life at Southern LifestyleEditor: Are you ready for some "Happy News?" My wish is to always try and bring you "happy news." My last letter I told you that I am now living at Southern Lifestyle Assisted Living Facility in Lake Placid. Everyday the staff strives to keep the people happy and busy. Lately, I have been given permission to participate and to join these activities. This week Diane Harris, activity director for "memory lane," took a very large group for a bus ride on nice country roads where they enjoyed cows, horses and the beautiful scenery. What a great day. There were lots of singing, smiles and happiness. Diane is a great driver and an asset here. We are all so lucky to have her. My profound thanks go to Diane for including me in this wonderful day.

By DAN ELLIOTT Associated PressCOLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. Ahigh-ranking Homeland Security official says the agency will protect Americans'civil liberties and privacy while it partners with the military to protect the nation's computer networks. An agreement with the military announced two weeks ago "in no way changes our respective departments'promises to protect civil liberties and privacy," Rear Adm. Michael Brown said Wednesday at the National Symposium on Homeland Security and Defense in Colorado Springs. Brown is assigned to Homeland Security as assistant secretary for cybersecurity and communications. His boss, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, is scheduled to address the symposium Thursday. Homeland Security announced Oct. 13 that computer experts from the supersecret National Security Agency, part of the Defense Department, will work with DHS to protect the computer networks that have become the backbone of financial, communication and transportation systems. That agreement raised concerns among civil liberties groups, which said safeguards would be needed to protect civil rights. Brown said the partnership won't infringe on civil rights or expand the military's role. "The agreement does not give the military authority to operate inside the U.S. in the event of a cyber attack," he said. "What it does do is formalize the process by which DOD and DHS will wo rk together to protect t he nation's cybernetworks an d increases the clarity of foc us of our respective roles an d responsibilities." The military has a leg al obligation to protect citizen s' privacy and civil libertie s, said Air Force Maj. Ge n. David Senty, chief of staff at U.S. Cyber Command, t he Defense Department com mand responsible for milita ry actions in cyberspace. "We do not see Cyb er Command and NSAas a ba lance between liberty an d security. We work to prote ct both," Senty told the symp osium Thursday.

"We get a lot more respect," English said. "People call them police trucks'and they slow down and put on their seat belts when they see us in the neighborhood.

"It have been a pretty smooth move," said Code Enforcement Officer Janet Shields. "There is an opportunity for more training, and, because of the department's resources, we are getting more training on the software we use. The job seems more efficient and easier now."

"Your honor, the witn esses the state has called a re fine with me," Patrick G onzalez Jr. told Judge N icholas Geeker after the j udge asked if the 36-yearo ld former karate instruct or and father of six agreed w ith and understood his a ttorneys'strategy.

In other testimony, two m en who were 19 and 16 d uring the 2009 home i nvasions told jurors they j oined Gonzalez in the a ttack but that he was the t riggerman. Both men face life in p rison and have entered p lea agreements with prose cutors in exchange for t heir testimony.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comThough they found thems elves in an unfamiliar posit ion at the end of the regular s eason, the Lake Placid voll eyball squad is now back in f amiliar territory. For five consecutive y ears, the Dragons had c ome into the district tourn ament as the top seed, but f ell short of number six this s eason with McKeel A cademy going undefeated i n district play. But like the last five y ears, Lake Placid was h eaded to the District 9-3A c hampionship match after t aking care of host Tenoroc W ednesday night. "It was a very exciting m atch," head coach Linette W ells said. "Tenoroc didn't m ake it easy for us. We s truggled finding holes in t heir defense but eventually w e broke them down and f orced them to make errors. "They fought hard but we f ought harder." After dropping the opene r, 25-18, the Dragons woke u p and took the next three b y 25-21, 25-20 and 25-22 s cores. Marissa Baldwin had the big night for Lake Placid, filling up the stat sheet with four aces, 18 digs, nine kills and three blocks to her credit. Kylie Weber set up the offense with 19 assists, with Rhoni Gavagny adding 10 of her own. Alysha Curtis had 10 kills and Olivia Goolsby and Laine Weber-Callahan each totaled 20 digs. "Tonight (Thursday) will be exceptionally hard for us," Wells said. "We are facing an undefeated team that is playing very strong. "We just need to keep our focus and limit the unforced errors. If we do that, find their holes and play as a team number six will be ours." Sebring was also in action Wednesday, facing off with top-seed Haines City in the District 5-5ASemifinal at Osceola. But much like their last regular-season meeting with the Hornets, this match saw little resistance from the Lady Streaks against this often overpowering squad. Lady Hornet Jessica Wilson was in dominant form, smashing 20 kills, getting eight blocks and serving up two aces. "It wasn't pretty," head coach Venessa Sinness said of the 25-6, 25-15, 25-14 losses. Avon Park came close to being Lake Placid's opponent but came up short Tuesday to Tenoroc. Playing without the strong serving and overall play of Ashley Chacon, who was out with illness, the Lady Red Devils put up a strong fight against the Titans. After dropping the opener by six, Avon Park bounced back to take the next two by 26-24 and 25-14 scores. But Tenoroc edged them out in the fourth game, 2523, to set up the 15-point tie breaker that went to the Titans 15-12. One team left standing, with Lake Placid assured a spot in the regional playoffs next Tuesday. And though Sebring and Avon Park saw their seasons come to an end, they can look back on a year that saw a lot of progress made and potential for next season. Streaks, Devils see seasons' end SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Friday, October 29, 2010 Page 4BGame Notes Though 3-4 overall,Avon Park is 2-0 in District play and have a legitimate shot at a playoff slot.

Special to the News-SunSaturday, Oct. 23 was week 10 and the final games of the regular season for the Sebring Youth Football Blue Streaks and Thunderbolts Association. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, several of the teams have placed pink ribbon stickers on their helmets, pink tape on their cleats and helmets or wearing the pink bracelets and the Cheerleaders have been wearing pink ribbons in their hair on game days. Some of the Youth Football staff have family members that are battling breast cancer or are a survivor and is it a great tribute and support to see the players and cheerleaders proudly supporting this cause. As stated in the last couple of weeks, every game counts and just one win or loss could make a difference in who goes to the playoffs. Each team is looking closely at the stats and the talk of playoffs is widespread throughout the MFFCC association. The Blue Streaks Association played the Poinciana Predators at home, with the flag game starting off the day. Coach Chris King and his squad took the field with one tough team. The offense and defense rallied back and forth in a high-scoring game, but the Streaks were unable to get the points on the board, ultimately losing to the Predators 34-20 to finish the season with a record of 4-6 and third place in District 3. The Mitey-Mite Streaks, coached by Carlos Cardoso, took the field with pride after officially clinching the District 3 Sunshine Conference Mitey-Mite championship last week. The offense got started early with Scooter Mcguire and Alvin Tomblin leading their team down into the end zone to score touchdowns. The defense stood strong, only allowing the Predators to find the end zone once, giving the Streaks their final win of the regular season with a score of 19-7. The win brings their record to 8-2 and off to the first round of the playoffs against the Lakeland Lumberjacks. Next up, the Senior Blue Streaks took the field ready to battle the Predators. It was an exciting gam e offensively and defensivel y, with some unexpected play er ejections and arguments o n the field. The Seniors struggled an d were unable to make thin gs happen giving Poinciana t he win, 27-13, bringing the ir record to 5-5 and secon d place in the District. They will also be movin g on to the first round of t he playoffs against the Lakelan d Lumberjacks. The Pee Wee Streak s, coached by David Jone s, came out and shut down t he Predators with a stiflin g defense that allowed n o points on the day. The offense, meanwhil e, rallied together and domina ted the field, giving them t he win 20-0. The team had been ti ed with Mulberry in the distri ct standings, and becau se Mulberry lost their game, th is moved the Streaks up to clinch the District 3 Sunshi ne Conference Pee W ee Championship with a 6 -4 record.

By DAN GELSTON Associated PressPHILADELPHIA L eBron James and his new t eammates are playing like a w ork in progress, not a title c ontender. Relax, Heat fans. There's p lenty of time for the triu mphant trio to work out the k inks. James, Dwyane Wade and C hris Bosh have their first w in with Miami, and the Big T hree got help from some b ig 3s in the Heat's 97-87 v ictory over the P hiladelphia 76ers on W ednesday night. "We're not at our peak, w e're not even close," Wade s aid. "Eventually when it's t ime to be there, we will." Playing with purpose a n ight after an 88-80 loss in a h yped showdown with B oston, the three looked as i f they still need some g ames to get used to playing w ith each other. Only Wade, with 30 p oints, looked particularly s harp against the Sixers. The Heat hit three straight 3 -pointers in the third quart er to bust open an eightp oint halftime lead. James relied almost e ntirely on his left hand and s cored 16 points, and Bosh h ad 15. James and the Heat just c ouldn't squash the Sixers, w ho went on a 15-3 run late i n the fourth to make it surp risingly competitive. Wade was bothered by a s trained right hamstring in t he preseason. His tough d riving layup gave him 30 p oints on 10-for-20 s hooting sealed the win. He as just 4 for 16 in the o pener. "I got in a comfort zone," W ade said. "I missed some s hots around the basket, but i t's coming." AJames not LeBron sparked the Heat. James J ones hit 6-of-9 3s and s cored 20 points. The Heat shot 50 percent f rom 3-point range e nough to make up for t ough shooting nights from J ames and Bosh (combined 1 1 for 24). James had nine t urnovers. "When we have our long b all going like that, it's u nlimited what we can do o ffensively," James said. Up next, Friday's home o pener against Orlando. For all the buzz surroundi ng the Heat, there were p lenty of patches of empty s eats in the announced sello ut crowd of 20,389 in the S ixers'home opener. Evan Turner led the S ixers with 16 points in his f irst NBAgame. Lou W illiams and Thaddeus Young had 15. All three came off the bench to help the Sixers outscore the Heat 33-17 in the fourth. "We know every night we go out, a team is going to want to beat the Miami Heat," James said. "Especially on the road, you're going to have the opposing crowd on you all game." James heard the loudest boos when he was introduced from fans that can deliver them as vociferously as any city in the league. He heard them occasionally during the game, but the volume was turned down and the noise mostly disappeared as the Heat pulled away. "I've been booed my whole NBAcareer," James said. "They boo you because they love the way you play basketball." One fan's sign called James "LeBum, the lyin' King" while another read "I witnessed no championship." James was slow to warm up, and played the first quarter like it was a preseason game. He was whistled for a travel, an offensive foul and threw the ball out of bounds off a drive down the lane. James drew a crowd of onlookers during warmups, including several members of the Philadelphia Flyers. Before the game, James said he already forgotten all about the Boston loss. He didn't seem to care about suggestions that teams were playing harder with a chance to shine against the marquee team in the NBA. "I've been a friend of that bulls-eye for a long time," James said. Jones was the one right on target. He hit four 3s during a 16-2 run in the second quarter that gave the Heat a 4941 lead at the break. For most of the first half, the fired-up Sixers gave Miami a bit of a run. In Doug Collins'first game as coach, the Sixers led 26-24 until Jones sparked a 10-0 run with the first 3 of his spurt. Jones, who considered retirement because of a wrist injury, showed he has plenty of game left. "This is a game that I love and I had to sit down and say if I couldn't be effective, if I couldn't regain my form, I would have to consider doing something else," he said. The Heat kept rolling from long distance in the third quarter. Jones hit two around one from Eddie House and the lead was 7651. Miami was up 80-54 after three. www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, October 29, 2010Page 3B 6940 U.S. 27 N., Sebring 382-6339 PLAY GOLF 19TH ANNUAL BRAD DOTY MEMORIAL CHILDRENS CHRISTMAS GOLF CLASSICBENEFITING THE CHILDRENS SERVICES FOUNDATIONSATURDAY, DECEMBER 4THSHOTGUNSTART8:30 A.M. € ENTRYFEE: $60.00Includes Lunch, Beverages on and off the course, Prizes, Cart, Greens Fees, Range Balls & A Lot of Fun!4 PERSON SCRAMBLEMake your own 4-person teamPlease mail your entries to:COUNTRY CLUB OF SEBRING4800 HAW BRANCH ROAD SEBRING, FLORIDA 33875Name________________________________________Handicap______ Name________________________________________Handicap______ Name________________________________________Handicap______ Name________________________________________Handicap______ACOPYOF THE OFFICIALREGISTRTION AND FINANCIALINFORMATION MAYBE OBTAINED FROM THE DIVISION OF CONSUMER SERVCIES BYCALLING TOLL-FREE WITHIN THE STATE 1-800-435-7352.

The Junior Streaks, coached by Bob Duncan, saw their offense struggle to move the ball, resulting in a disappointing, 18-0 loss. The team still boasts a 6-4 record, good enough for second place and a trip to the playoffs against the Lakeland Lumberjacks.

Game day started off with the Thunderbolt Flag team, coached by Kirby Whitehouse, taking the field with the Patriots. Sebring was up against a large, skilled flag team but rallied together to try to get things going. The offense struggled and the defense was no match to the speed and agility of the Patriots, resulting in a 27-0 loss. This dropped the team to 4-6 and third place in District 4 Sunshine Conference Flag Division. Next up the Thunderbolt Mitey-Mite team, coached by Chris Hawthorne, took the field with the Patriots determined to win this game to break the three way tie with Lake Wales and Desoto. Lead by Shamar Hawthorne, the offense quickly stepped up the pace to meet a strong defense by the Patriots. Several mistakes and missed tackles, however, saw them drop a 40-0 contest. With their record now 4-6, the team will play a wild card game to determine who will go on to the first round of the playoffs. The Thunderbolt Pee Wee team, coached by Tim Hooks, saw a back and forth battle with the Pats. The offense, lead by Kasey Hawthorne and Thurlow Wilkins, scored the first touchdown of the game but the Patriots didn't take this lightly, quickly returning with a score of their own. With one missed field goal, the Thunderbolts went into half time behind 15-13 The second half was quite exciting, the Thunderbolt defense remained strong, but the Patriots were able to get a safety and score again with a bringing a bittersweet, 25-13, loss. With their record at 5-5, the team is tied for second place in the District 4 Pee Wee Division. They will play a wild card game against Avon Park for a slot in the playoffs. The Final and most exciting game of the day was played by the Thunderbolt Junior team coached by Cliff Howell. The offense was lead by Cole Kilgo, and quickly met a defensive stand in this Patriot team. The exceptional defense of the Thunderbolts took the field ready and willing to take on this sizable team. Late in the first quarter, Sebring's defense was holding the Patriots on their own 5-yard line. Akem JnPierre then powered through the line, sacking the quarterback in the end zone for a safety Sebring's defense was quick and aggressive, with key tackles made by Anthony "Big A" Healy, Jalen Williams, EJ JnPierre, Tyler Edwards and Cole Kilgo to keep it at 2-0 into the fourth. With only 3:56 left in the game, Wyatt Kinslow intercepted a pass and ran it down to the Patriot five. The offense took over an d Kilgo ran the ball in for t he touchdown, making it an 8 -0 final. With a record of 7-3, t he team took second place in t he District 4 Junior division an d move on to play Avon Park in the first round of the pla yoffs.

Sponsorship of Jeff Gordon's car was filled Thursday when longtime partner DuPont announced a three-year extension with the four-time NASCAR champion. DuPont has been with Gordon since his Cup debut in 1992, but the company is scaling back its commitment starting next year. It will be Gordon's primary sponsor in 14 races. "I can't remember what it was like to race without DuPont on board," said Gordon. "We've had such an incredible ride together, and I've learned so much about how DuPont applies science and innovation to make a positive difference in the world. It means a lot to me to keep it going for at least another three seasons. "DuPont has supported me throughout my Cup career, and I feel like we have more wins and championships ahead." The announcement comes a day after the AARP Foundation picked up a large portion of DuPont's previous races. AARPwill be the primary sponsor for Gordon in 22 events with its "Drive to End Hunger" campaign. Pepsi Co., another one of Gordon's longtime sponsors, is expected to keep its sponsorship of two races. That would fill Gordon's car with sponsorship for the next several years.

By MIKE STOBBE APMedical WriterATLANTA Teens s hould get a booster dose of t he vaccine for bacterial m eningitis because a single s hot doesn't work as long as e xpected, a federal advisory p anel said Wednesday. The vaccine was initially a imed at high school and coll ege students because the dise ase is more dangerous for a dolescents and can easily s pread in crowded condit ions, like dorm rooms. Three y ears ago, the Advisory C ommittee on Immunization P ractices said the vaccine s hould be offered to children a ges 11 and 12. They b elieved the shot was effect ive for at least 10 years. But the panel was told W ednesday that studies show t he vaccine works for less t han five years. The committee debated a dding a booster shot or simp ly push back the timing of t he single dose to age 14 or 1 5. They decided that teens s hould get a booster dose at a ge 16. The vote for a second shot w as 6 to 5, an unusually close v ote for the panel. The panel m ajority concluded a booster a fter five years would be easi er and less confusing to i mplement than changing the a ge for the first shot. The group provides vacc ine advice to the Centers for D isease Control and P revention. The CDC and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services usually adopt the panel's recommendations and sends the advice to doctors and the public. However, this recommendation may not be adopted quite so easily. AFood and Drug Administration official, Norman Baylor, said more studies about the safety and effectiveness of a second dose of the vaccine are needed. Some wondered if it was even necessary to make such a decision. Cases of bacterial meningitis are at historic lows, and a survey of more than 200 colleges and universities representing more than 2 million students in the last academic year found 11 cases of bacterial meningitis and three deaths. "I'm not terribly worried about emergent disease," said Dr. James Turner, head of student health at the University of Virginia. He is a liaison to the panel for the American College Health Association. But during a public comment session, several people made passionate pleas to keep an initial dose at 11 and 12, and add a booster if necessary. A25-year-old man told of how his legs and hands were amputated after a bacterial meningitis infection when he was 14. "Why would we want to go backward?" said Nicholas Springer, of New York City. ACDC expert, Dr. Amanda Cohn, told the panel that some studies have shown the vaccine's effectiveness dropping off significantly within a few years. www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, October 29, 2010Page 5B 130 S.

Last week I talked about t he power of prayer and havi ng your prayers answered. T here wasn't enough space in t he column to tell you how to g et your prayers answered. T his week I will share with y ou what I have learned. Hebrews 11:6 says, "For w ithout faith it is impossible t o please him; but he that c ometh to God must believe t hat he is, and that he is a r ewarder of those who dilig ently seek him." We must b elieve that God exists and t hat He is all-powerful. We m ust believe that He wants to g ive us good things. Then we m ust diligently seek Him as i f looking for a lost heirloom. The way to get that faith is a lso through prayer. The b ook of James tells us we d on't get what we want either b ecause we haven't asked, or b ecause we have asked for t he wrong reason, or the w rong thing. John 15:5 says w e can't do anything on our o wn. We can't even get the d esire to pray without asking t he Holy Spirit to give it to u s. Then we have to put some e ffort into it. We have to o pen our Bibles, ask the Holy S pirit to help us understand w hat He is trying to tell us, then meditate on it. Let it sink into your heart so it becomes part of you. Matthew 6:9-13 gives us the order of things we should pray for, starting with acknowledging God's sovereignty. Deliberately set aside a time for prayer and Bible reading, just as you would keep a doctor appointment. It might only be ten minutes, or it could be an hour. Then try to keep an open line of prayer throughout the day, because you never know what is coming. If we mess up, we should ask God to forgive us immediately and try not to do that again. That keeps the prayer line open. Look for passages or verses where God is promising something. Write it down. Try to memorize it. The more you read it, and see results to your prayers, the more your faith will grow. Now watch your prayers start getting answered. If not, contact me. I'd love to hear from you.

By CHRISTYLEMIRE APMovie CriticEven if the visually similar Cloverfield" and the themati cally similar "District 9" d idn't already exist, Monsters" would still seem p ainfully hackneyed and o bvious. See if you can figure out w hat the allegory is within t his sci-fi tale: Acouple of A mericans stranded in M exico can't get back across t he border because there's a g iant infected zone filled w ith scary aliens blocking t heir way. American troops w ho patrol this northernmost p art of the country are arrog ant jerks, while the Mexican p eople who help our twent ysomething travelers are g enerous and kind. Once they do reach the e dge of the United States, t hey see a tall, foreboding w all intended to keep intrude rs out. In case we still can't figure o ut the point of Gareth E dwards'film, he has one of h is characters state the foll owing: "You know, it's diff erent looking at America f rom the outside, in." Huh. You don't say. Yes, "Monsters" really is t hat heavy-handed, which m ight have been more tolerab le if it had at least offered s ome vague tension or even t he slightest glimmer of c hemistry between its two s tars, who share the screen p retty much the entire time. Photojournalist Andrew K aulder (Scoot McNairy) has been covering the ugly, ongoing battle between humans and the aliens they've been struggling to contain. His publisher's daughter, Sam Wynden (Whitney Able), finds herself trapped in Mexico and needing an escort back home. They're reluctant companions on this journey, which means naturally they're going to end up falling for each other because they're facing extraordinary circumstances together and, well, because they're in a movie. But neither of them is thrilled about the normal life that's waiting for them on the other side. As they chat and get to know each other through various dangers and obstacles, Kaulder reveals the awkward relationship he shares with his young son; Sam, meanwhile, has a fiance she doesn't seem terribly enthused about seeing. This prompts Kaulder to make the observation, as they stand on the brink of crossing the border, that they'll soon be returning to their separate lives once more. Again, if the writing is strong enough, these things shouldn't have to be spelled out for us. Kaulder and Sam talk the whole time but they're still not very well drawn. It's a shame, too, because Edwards as writer, director and cinematographer does deserve some points for effort and technical ingenuity. Visually, "Monsters" manages a lot with a little budget. The monster effects, sometimes seen through a hand-held video camera's viewfinder, are intriguing in an understated way. Edwards also was wise to refrain from showing us the aliens in all their grody glory until just about the end of the film, instead teasing us with glimpses of their tentacles and chunks of their charred carcasses. When a couple of aliens do encounter each other for Kaulder and Sam and the audience to see ... well, it's meant to be hugely symbolic, too. But you get the sense that Gareth only knows how to toy with lofty concepts rather than dig deeper and offer real critical meaning. By JAKECOYLE Associated PressKristen Stewart, her sexua lity so bound up in vampirei nduced abstinence in the Twilight" films, makes up f or lost time in "Welcome to t he Rileys." When we first see her, s he's strutting on the catwalk o f a New Orleans strip club, a nd soon thereafter she's p awing James Gandolfini in a champagne room," explaini ng her rates in a rush of vulg arity. How these characters e nded up in such a place and w here they go from there is t he story of "Welcome to the R ileys." It was directed by J ake Scott, a music video d irector who, despite being t he son of blockbuster direct or Ridley Scott, shows a p reference for slow pacing a nd deliberate seriousness. The film opens on a burni ng car, which we later learn w as the tragic fate of the 15y ear-old daughter to Doug ( Gandolfini) and Lois Riley ( Melissa Leo). Years later, t hey're still locked in mourni ng, their daughter's room n eatly preserved. Lois is afraid to even leave t heir suburban Indianapolis h ome. Doug has moved on e nough to have an affair with a Pancake House waitress ( Eisa Davis), but she, too, d ies suddenly. He's full of m elancholy, spending nights s moking cigarettes in his g arage. He runs a wholesale p lumbing business. During a b usiness conference in New O rleans, he tells a colleague: No surprises, that's my m otto," but it's clear he doesn 't mean it. He's gritting his t eeth, disgusted by his life's s tasis. Doug abandons the confere nce and lands in the strip bar w here he encounters Mallory ( Stewart). He's not interested in sex, just a hole to forget himself in. Thinking he's a cop, she turns him out, only to reassess later when she sees him in the diner across the street. He drives her home, a dilapidated apartment without electricity, and stays the night. He refuses her aggressive entreaties, and learning that she's a 16-year-old runaway, decides to move in and take care of her. "Sugar daddy," she calls him at first, but Doug quickly takes a plainly paternal role. He teaches her basic things, like how to make a bed, and fines her for cursing. He calls his wife and tells her he might not be coming home again. The scenes between Doug and Mallory are the best thing in "Welcome to the Rileys," which was written by Ken Hixon. Gandolfini, with a believable and not overstated Southern accent, plays reformer. Stewart, in what may be her best performance yet, warms to his caring while vacillating between hard rage. She's all elbows, shifty eyes and a nest of hair. Stewart has the habit of biting her bottom lip, a gesture she should be careful not to overuse. But she's a captivating blend of fragility and strength. It's obvious that Doug's attempts to tame her can only partially succeed. Lois, meanwhile, is awakening. She summons the courage to not only leave the house, but drive to New Orleans. Leo, another fine actor, comes to life with her character, shedding makeup and rigidity. But Lois also upsets the wonderful dynamic between Doug and Mallory, and the final third of "Welcome to the Rileys" loses its equilibrium. The fine acting (when will a movie rise to Gandolfini's level like David Chase's "The Sopranos" did?) and Scott's slow, natural build (scored with soft piano by Marc Streitenfeld) hides the film's outlandish underpinnings. But those are laid bare late in the movie, when the savethe-prostitute-with-a-goldenheart cliche treads too obviously. Scott has the good sense not to bring everything to a neat conclusion. After all, this is really the Rileys' movie, and one about rebirth and letting go of demons. www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, October 29, 2010Page 11B PARANORMALR ACTIVITY 2(Ben Affleck)2:15 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.

I have never missed a single day. I write about him regardless of whether I see him or not. Sometimes I'll jot down a verse I remembered, or something happening in his world or an item of newsworthy information. I have also written my thoughts about his life and decisions. My dilemma is when I should give these writings to him. I don't want to keep them indefinitely because they are meant for him. He is married and has a son on the way. My inclination is to give him the writings of his life on the occasion of his son's birth. He has no idea I've been doing this, so it will be a complete surprise. I'd appreciate your input. Blocked Writer in Oklahoma DearBlocked Writer: What an amazing gift those journals will be. However, allow me to caution you against giving them to your son when his child is born. There will be a lot going on at that time, and you do not want to distract from that momentous occasion. My advice is to wait until his next milestone birthday and present them to him when he's 25. And because you enjoy journaling, consider starting one about your own life then. DearAbby: I have always enjoyed Halloween. I like seeing the children in their costumes and, for most of the little ones, it is a fun and magical time. In our neighborhood, a group of 15 to 20 parents escort their trick-or-treating children from door to door. Sometimes there are 25 to 30 kids. When they approach a house for their treats, the parents remain on the sidewalk, apparently oblivious to what's going on when the door opens. We have a small front porch that rises about 8 inches above the sidewalk. The kids push and shove, jockeying for position to get their "loot." Last year, a 5-year-old fell off our porch. Fortunately, she was not hurt. The parents did not issue any directions to their children to take turns accepting our candy because they we re too busy chatting among themselves. Because of the inherent danger to unsupervised chi ldren (and the po ssibility of a lawsuit if there should be an acc ident), I will not be turnin g on my porch light this ye ar the signal in our area that alerts kids that the home is participating in trick-or-treat. I hope my letter will remind parents to practice mindfulness and make thi s Sunday a Happy Halloween! Lights Out in Harrisbu rg DearLights Out: So d o I, and that's why I'm prin ting your letter, which arrived just in time for m e to include it in today's co lumn. Last year your neigh bors were lucky the child who fell didn't break a wrist or an ankle. Parents when escorting your little ghosts, goblins and vampires, please remain vigilant. Common sense must prevail. DearAbby: I'm in lov e with my best friend. It seems so simple when I say it, but when it comes to telling him, the words never come out right. I don't know if I should even say anything. What if it ruins the amazing frien dship we already have? Is it worth risking it all? Hesitant in Florid a DearHesitant: Yes, it is, so tell him how you feel. If he has feelings for you, you'll get what you' re angling for. If he doesn't, it does not mean your friendship must end. It wi ll let you know that if you want a romantic relationship you are free to look elsewhere. Better to know it sooner than later.

LIVING 12B PAGE News-Sun Friday, October 29, 2010 t was a dark and spooky night, but Wilhelmena was not going to miss Halloween. She put on her flowered angel costume and picked up her brightest lantern She bounced out the door, and SMACK! Willie ran right into her best friend Lily. Ouch. With Lily by her side and her father and baby brother Tom (and his bottle ) trailing behind her Willie went out to see what treats she could find. The night swirled with strange noises and wild animals. Three frogs croaked in the distance. Two white opossums stirred from their hanging spots. Flutter, flutter, PFFT Willie jumped. Something was on her nose. ACK! Lily laughed. It was a ladybug. The dotted bug fluttered off, and Willie looked around. Six ladybugs were around her neighborhood! There were also lots of her classmates from school disguised in fun and interesting costumes. Josh, Patrick and Tiffany were dressed as characters from "Harry Potter." They each had magic wands Jaclyn was dressed as the Statue of Liberty and carried a torch And Jordan was a cowboy in his tengallon hat The girls were ready to make their first trickor-treat stop at scary Mrs. Peabody's. Mrs. Peabody was the neighborhood widow, and no one liked to stop there. There were always cats in the attic and an owl on the roof The kids at school said Mrs. Peabody liked to eat children for a nighttime snack especially little girls on Halloween. Willie and Lily walked up to the door and reached for the doorbell. SPLAT Something smacked the sidewalk behind them. WHAAAA Little Bobby, Mrs. Peabody's next door neighbor wailed. The girls turned around. Acat had knocked Bobby's jack-o'-lantern off the railing, and it had splatted on the sidewalk. Luckily, there were plenty of other pumpkin faces around (10, if you counted them). Before Willie could turn back to the door, Lily had reached up and BZZZZ she rang the doorbell. The heard a noise from behind the door, and CREEEEAK the door slowly opened. There stood Mrs. Peabody with a giant black kettle She lowered the kettle to the girls. GASP! Willie was too scared to breathe. The kettle came lower low enough for Willie and Lily to see into it. And there it was the kettle, the big, black kettle full of apples. Lily and Willie each took a shiny red apple. Mrs. Peabody smiled at them. Then she asked them to wait. The girls froze. Mrs. Peabody reached into her pocket. She bent down close to the girls. Mrs. Peabody handed each girl a dollar and congratulated them on being so brave. Then WINK! Mrs. Peabody winked at them and flashed a big smile. Willie and Lily turned and skipped down the sidewalk, ready for more tricks and treats. Eight bats circled above their heads and the night was dark, but it wasn't so spooky anymore.
