By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Veterans of all shapes, sizes, and ages were honored during a Veteran's Day Program held by Woodlawn Elementary. The Woodlawn cafeteria was blanketed in stars and stripes and red, white and blue as the students spent the morning paying tribute to our country's many heroes. Scattered throughout the audience family and friends of the brave soldiers, airmen, sailors and marines. The fourth-grade students performed a number of songs as well as recited a poem in honor of each branch of the military. Military members spoke also during the program sharing their stories and experiences on how they became a part of the country's armed forces. Woodlawn faculty members also presented the veterans with a touching slide show revealing their loved ones who served in wars throughout our country's history.

The decision also puts to rest t he expensive legal battle the coun ty waged against the Dawg House P et Resort. One of the complexities of enforcement discussed was th at code enforcement has no place to measure from with anonymo us complaints about nois e. Commissioner Guy Maxcy agre ed that there could be retaliatio n against code enforcement complainers, but asked if in the case of noise complaints that the county collect the names of the complainers. Currently, code enforcement will allow anonymo us complaints because of the fear of retaliation, according to Co de Supervisor Linda Conrad. County resident Joe Eck suppo rted Maxcy's assertion. "If you ain't got the guts to do it, then it should not be used. If th ey can't say it with their name, it should not be enforced," Eck said Commissioner Barbara Stewa rt and Conrad argued that anonymo us complaints were necessary to pr otect those complaining.

Special to the News-SunSEBRING The Moving Wall, a traveling monument to the Vietnam War, will arrive in Highlands County on Tuesday. The Moving Wall is a replica scale model of the Vietnam War Memorial Wall located on the Mall at Washington DC. Touring the country for more than 20 years, there are two structures that travel the US from April through November. The U.S. Military Veterans Motorcycle Club will provide the escort for the van transporting the Wall panels on Tuesday from the intersection of I-4 and U.S. 27 to the Lakeshore Mall. The escort will rendezvous with the mobile Vietnam Memorial Wall around 10 a.m. Spectators are welcome to wave flags along the route, but are advised to keep a safe distance from the roadway and avoid blocking driveways and cross roads. The set-up of the Wall will require the rest of Tuesday and most of Wednesday. The wall will be open to the public beginning Thursday, Nov. 18. Volunteers will be needed to help during the week to assist with security, set-up and packing up after the event. The opening ceremony will begin at 10 a.m. with the posting of the Colors by the VFWPost 4300. The Wall will be open to the public 24 hours each day from through Nov. 21 at the Lakeshore Mall. For additional information or to volunteer for security or support, contact Harry Oakley, commander of the Disabled American Veterans Ridge Chapter 49, at chiefo@cs.com, or 863-4525771.

s horeline, Lake Clay collects the most o f the raw run-off in its area. Right now permits are being pulled a nd preparations being made. The proje ct should be completed by late summ er. A25-foot by 300-foot section of the T ower's north end parking lot will be d ug up and replaced with a bermed r etention pond to include French d rains. Anative scrub habitat will be c reated to help further filter water and h old soil. The project is a complicated, but c ooperative, blend of jurisdictions and r esources. According to Worley, when it b ecame apparent recently that Florida w as not meeting its own environmental s tandards for clean lake water, Gov. C harlie Crist ordered water districts to i dentify projects to solve the problem. Southwest Florida Water M anagement District conducted studies o n 61 lakes in its region which e ncompasses DeSoto and Hardee count ies, and portions of Highlands, C harlotte and Polk counties recogn izing five lakes in Highlands County i n need of intervention. Lake Clay was deemed the most criti cally at risk to go into decline, and so w as placed at the top of the list. The other lakes scheduled for similar w ork this fiscal year are Tulane and I sis in Avon Park. According to Worley, lakes McCoy and June in Lake Placid should be on the project list for fiscal year 20112012. "This is putting money to good use," said Oakley, as he pointed down at Lake Clay. He was not only referring to the various SWFMD projects throughout the county, but to the partnerships which developed as diverse agencies banded together to make the projects happen. For example, in the case of Lake Clay private property was involved. Asignificant easement 25 feet by 300 feet was needed in the northern end of the Tower's parking lot. The town, while having jurisdiction in the case, did not feel it could afford to pay for an easement, or guarantee its maintenance. Worley said the private citizen rose to the challenge, donating the land and agreeing to maintain it. "We really appreciate what (the owner) is doing," said Worley. "He is the only one who could help. He did, and he didn't have to." SWFMD provided $380,000 in funding, but required matching funds. The county side had to come up with $120,000. Soil and Water Conservation put up $10,000 and the Tourist Development Council lakes being a major attraction for the area provided $40,000, leaving only $70,000 to be covered by the county commission. Worley emphasized SWFMD's contributions. She said by paying for the needed preliminary studies, SWFMD had saved the county an additional tens of thousands of dollars. www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, November 12, 2010Page 3A News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY Board members of the Southwest Florida Water Management District and the Peace River Basin, visited Highlands County Wednesday morning.

In the budget, $1.9 million was set aside in 2007 for the purchase and the move, and according to county staff, over $640,000 is still available for renovations. Currently, the elections office occupies just 3,000 square feet of office space on the second floor of the Government Center at 603 S. Commerce. The change will allow elections to expand their training facilities, add a vault, and give them more storage for their paperwork. "I want to get permission now so that Ramone (Gavarrete, county engineer) can get started on t he drawings now so we can g et the jump on the next ele ctions," Campbell sai d. "With this move, we wou ld be set for the next 15 to 2 0 years." "This would allow him to keep all of his equipme nt consolidated in one area ," said Rick Helms, interi m county administrator. Early voting will go wi th the office, Campbell sai d, and there would be roo m set aside just for voting. "There is currently n o room up there during vo ting time, and with all t he chaos, my fear is somethin g will get mixed up ," Campbell said. Campbell said that he wants to have everything in place before the 2012 p rimaries. Continued from page 1A Elections office ready to move into bigger home By SETH BORENSTEIN APScience WriterWASHINGTON The cost of NASA's replacement for the Hubble Space Telescope is giving new meaning to the word astronomical, growing another $1.5 billion, according to a new internal NASAstudy released Wednesday. NASA's explanation: We're better rocket scientists than accountants. Management and others didn't notice that key costs for the James Webb Space Telescope weren't included during a major program review in July 2008, officials said. The study says in the best case scenario it will now cost about $6.5 billion to launch and run the powerful, new telescope. And that can happen only if NASAadds an extra $500 million in the next two years over current budget plans. If the agency can't get the extra money from Congress, it will ultimately cost even more and take longer to launch the telescope. Before now, the cost of the telescope had already ballooned from $3.5 billion to $5 billion. NASAofficials said they had not done a good job of figuring out the confirmation cost for the massive telescope. The report said the budget in 2008 "understated the real requirements" and managers didn't realize how inadequate it was. "We were missing a certain fraction of what was going on," NASAassociate administrator Chris Scolese said in a late Wednesday afternoon teleconference. The Webb telescope, "we hope is just an aberration," Scolese said, but suggested there may be other budget-busting projects. He said the agency is now reviewing all its projects to see if there are similar cases of poor budgeting. The costs aren't because of problems with the technology, design or construction of the instrument. NASAsaid, technically, it is in good shape. NASA's new space telescope costs shoot the moon Associated PressSAN DIEGO Six tug boats pulled a s tricken cruise ship to shore Thursday morni ng amid cheers from a waiting crowd, bringi ng the nearly 4,500 passengers and crew c loser to freedom after three days of limited f ood, smelly toilets and dark cabins. Escorted by Coast Guard cutters, the nearl y 1,000-foot Carnival Splendor reached the d ock at about 8:30 a.m. PST. and passengers w ere expected to begin disembarking two to t hree hours later, port officials said. Seventy-five buses were arriving to drive them north to Long Beach, where the Splendor is based. Passengers on the decks and about 100 people onshore cheered loudly as the ship reached the dock, while all along the harbor, tourists, joggers and fishermen stopped to snap photos. "We're so happy to be getting off. "Everybody's been cheering and clapping," passenger Sahizah Alim, 26, of Sacramento, said by cell phone. "It's been like a nightmare," she said. "There's been no food, no power, no electricity, no flushing toilets. I spent the night tossing and turning in my cabin in the dark." Passengers cheer as ship towed into port Continued from page 1A By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Two of H ighlands County long time s chool board members s erved at their last meeting T uesday. Rev. Richard N orris and Wally Randall r eceived many handshakes a nd goodbyes as they spent t he beginning of their e vening at their farewell r eception. Their years of service on t he board have been long a nd hard as each of the men h ave had to share time b etween their families and t heir other positions within t he community. Randall, who resigned as c hairperson of the Highlands C ounty School Board, s erved 10 years; Norris s erved eight. Each of the m en both spent a year prior t o being elected studying a nd learning what it was a board member does before running for the positions. Norris was defeated back in August by Bill Brantley. Brantley and Ronnie Jackson will be sworn in to their positions as board members on next Monday, replacing Norris and Randall. "We are sad to see him go, he's just been here for so long," Pat Khule, secretary to Superintendent Wally Cox, said of Randall. "But we are losing him to such a good thing," said Khule. Randall will be leaving the school board to continue his work as Highlands County Boys and Girls Club executive director. "I'll still be around," said Randall with a chuckle. Norris also isn't planning to go anywhere. He plans to still serve the community through his pastoral messages as well as attending frequent board meetings. "I'll be sitting right out in that crowd with all of you from now on. I'm not going anywhere," Norris said. The Norris and Randall families were both in attendance. Norris was accompanied by his wife and children, including his new daughter-in-law, and Randall spent the evening with his spouse, children and two young grandkids. The board also lost a second group of people on Tuesday evening. The AD Morgan Corporation was recognized as they completed their final construction project for Highlands County schools. The board presented AD Morgan with a plaque commemorating their many years as the company that created better, safer, and exceptional schools for the students of the community.

R ecently, inquiries by the press i nto what the count y government is d oing has been met w ith the answer t hat there is "no b ig conspiracy h ere."But, if the county is not f orthcoming with the inform ation, then yes, there is a c onspiracy. Even if it is not i ntentional. The conspiracy lies in the c onscious or unconscious e ffort to not let the public k now when things are happ ening within the governm ent. Finding out that something o f significance happened a fter the fact breeds mistrust, a nd raises questions of why d ecisions are made. After-the-fact discoveries a lso lead to an attitude that t he public takes a back seat to t he decision-making process. Those happenings make t he public feel like public i nput is to be tolerated, not v alued. Certainly not an i mportant part of most decis ions. Why? Trust of the government c an be compared to a bank a ccount. Make enough d eposits, even small ones, a nd a withdrawal is not a p roblem. Make too many withd rawals, or don't make d eposits, and the trust a ccount is bankrupt. That l eaves the public suspicious a nd feeling neglected. Case in point is the recent s wearing in of the three new c ounty commissioners. Not really a big deal, and a v ery good effort was made by c ounty staff to make sure that a ll the right paperwork was d one so that the incoming c ommission transition went s mooth. But, the public was not m ade aware ahead of time t hat there would be a potent ial problem if the commiss ioner-elects had not taken t heir oaths or their paperwork was processed before the Nov. 16 commission meeting. Why? Three commissioners are scheduled to be out of office by that date, and that would leave the board without a quorum come that meeting if the incoming group had not taken the oath early. Something that has not happened in the recent memory of, say, the last 20 years. So, the early swearing in of the three new commissioners without public notice prompted citizens to ask why after they discovered that it was going on last Friday morning. Several citizens were even concerned enough to ask "why are they taking their oaths in secret?" Social media is a very strong tool, and in the modern age of Facebook, Twitter, text messaging and e-mail, the question of why was spread quick as lightning, leaving not just a couple, but literally several hundred citizens with the same question. Why? The curiosity prompted some of those citizens to contact the News-Sun on Friday via phone, text, and e-mail to find out what their government was doing. Since there was not a press release from the county on the matter, the News-Sun began to look into the who, what, where, when and why, not to mention the how, and discovered that indeed all three commissioner-elects were sworn in early last Friday. Swearing in new commissioners early, especially because there may be a problem, is news and something the public needs to know ahead of time to dispel any doubts that the government can function effectively. County staff was wondering why it was a big deal, but the uninformed public was wondering why it was going on. Even two of the new commissioners stated they had no idea that they would actually be sworn in early. Is there really a big conspiracy, intentional or unintentional, to keep certain information away from the public? The answer lies in looking at the county, or even the local municipality, Web sites. Are they up to date? Should they be? Ask to see the county code book of ordinances. That law book is not available in any of the public office counters where any citizen can just walk up and take a look, and any updates take up to three months to be posted on the Web site. And asking for some public records could cost a regular citizen hundreds in research fees. These actions, and other withdrawals from the public trust account, make it clear that keeping information from the public may indeed sometimes be a big unintentional conspiracy. It is also clear that informing the public is definitely not a priority of local government. And that still leaves the big question out there...Why?

Spider web woes begin in Avon Park E ditor: I'm not sure if some of the c itizens of Avon Park realize t he spider web that has starte d to grow in Avon Park. T he new city manager comes i n and appoints Maria S utherland in a new position a s assistant city manager ( not a city position or in the b udget). Then Maria S utherland, of course, supp orts her husband in the race f or city council, but she also h elped support the mayor in w inning the election; not s ure how ethical this was as b ecoming the assistant city m anager and just recently h olding the position of acti ng city manager. So now the web has starte d. Two of the recent elect ion winners that were supp orted by a key employee of t he city have an impact on k eeping and funding the a ssistant city manager posit ion have now either been r e-elected or voted in on the c ouncil. Oh what a web has s tarted to be weaved in the r unning of the city of Avon P ark. Even though the mayor a lready has a puppy dog on t he council, I hope she is s trong enough to keep the w eb from spinning out of c ontrol. We do need some h awkish citizens to keep an eye on what goes on. Citizens need to step back and take a look at possible issues that could arise. And, of course, Mr. (Parke) Sutherland will have to step down as the city's special magistrate and won't be able to represent anybody involving city cases; it would not be ethical. The city of Avon Park is too small to justify a position of assistant city manager and has been rejected in the past; we don't need more managers or executives, which cost more money. If the council did decide to add the assistant city manager position, it should become a charter officer like the city manager's position, which would mean Mr. Sutherland would not be able to vote on the budget if his wife held this position. I hope some people now see some interesting scenarios. Ed Dickerson Avon ParkOklahoma' is beautiful productionEditor: Oh, what a beautiful play! The musical, "Oklahoma," is a beautiful production. The Highlands Little Theatre can be very proud of their latest effort, and the community's support of the show is evident. This is a love story set against the backdrop of our nation's history filled with memorable music. Sunday's afternoon performance had most seats filled, and the production received a standing ovation from the attentive audience. The music, the actors, the sets and especially the lighting effects combine to make a wonderful theatre experience. You can even take home a dessert as there is a pie auction during intermission to get the audience ready for the basket lunch auction in the second act when Curly Jud competes for Laurey's basket. Call or go online and get your tickets today. You do not want to miss this show; it runs for two more weeks. 382-2525 or www.highlandslittletheatre.org Olivia Scott Avon ParkBio-fuels could double price of cornEditor: I would be very careful of what we wish for, because we might get it. All of this hoopla about bio-fuels, that is, could just be another big scam for our agricultural department and our government to double the price of corn, or any other product that is made from corn. I do not trust our government, or our politicians; they will come up with a new scam to shaft the people out of more money, one way or another. Why not push for hydrogen-powered vehicles, or better batteries for electricpowered vehicles? I predict that anything that is made from corn, whether it is for human food or animal food, will double in price in the very near future. Think about that. Don H. Streeter SebringMeal missed at HLT performanceEditor: As always the actors did a superb job in presenting "Oklahoma." The set design, costumes, and all else make a great play. But the powers that be could use a little advice. Cutting out the dinner without even giving the season holders a voice in my opinion was wrong. What used to be a special night out is just a night out. I know my husband and myself would have been more than willing to pay a bit more for our season tickets to keep the dinner. Oh, we might not have really liked the idea. Heck, we don't like the idea of every time we enter a supermarket that prices has risen. But if we want to eat, we pay. As a season ticket holder give me a chance to say if I am willing to pay the increse. Another gripe. Why weren't there any waitresses available to take drink orders? The tables were so close together that once you where seated it was almost impossible to get up to go buy a drink. As I see this, this was money lost. Don't get me wrong the play, "Oklahoma," was a great play. Alot of hard work went into presenting it. And I do hope any that any who can afford this type of entertainment will make it a point to get out and see "Oklahoma." I am sure you will enjoy it to the fullest. Judee VanBrookhoven SebringA huge success for Terror TrailEditor: This year's Terror Trail was a huge sucess. Big thank you's to the hundreds of volunteers and the thousands of attendees. Volunteers included Sebring and Avon Park High School, Lake Placid Health Care Center employees and so many others. Business sponsors included Cohan Radio Group, Lake Placid Health Care Center, Highlands Independant Bank, Mid Florida Reality, and Taylor Rental.

Crawford comes to rescueEditor: I was stranded with a fla t tire on U.S. 27 approximate ly 20 miles south of Lake Placid. God sent his Guardian Angel Lt. Vincent Crawford (FHP) to my rescue. He wa s very courteous and it is a great feeling to know there are caring people like him looking out for our safety. Many thanks and appreci ation. Louise Regnier Bouquets It's an odd Americanism to elect someone to be in government who freely admits they don't like government. As if reluctance translates into competence. "Oh he'll be a great husband, especially since he doesn't believe in marriage." For some reason, we buy the premise of politicians begging to be a part of the thing they are, in theory against. Son of an incumbent seven-term Texas Congressman, Kentucky's Rand Paul, in his first public statement as a governmentemployee-elect, said, "We've come to take our government back." And he's going to do that by cashing a government paycheckreluctantly. Apolitician who is against government is like an actor who is against entertainment. It's ridiculous. Because we hate politicians so much, the only way we can stand inking a bubble next to their name is to pretend they really don't want to do their job. But do Americans actually know what the government is or what the government actually does? Failed Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle told a crowd during her campaign, "Government isn't what our Founding Fathers put into the Constitution." Yes, the framing document of the U.S. Government has no "government" in it. At CPAC this year, Fox News Host Glenn Beck told his government-leery audience he learned progressivism is evil by educating himself at public libraries because "books are free." Yes, Glenn, they are "free" because the government funds public libraries with taxes a progressive plot. RNC Chairman Michael Steele said last year, "You and I know that in the history of mankind and womankind, governmentfederal, state or localhas never created one job." It's a battle cry repeated by many a Republican, some now working in yes government jobs. Such a sound bite is often said in front of people employed by the U.S. Postal Service (the second largest employer in the country), public school teachers and the U.S. military jobs which the government arguably and factually created. So there are deniers of climate change, evolution, the Holocaust, 9/11, AIDS, Obama's American citizenship, Separation of Church and State and a round Earth. People deny these things in the face of overwhelming evidence. Even though these things exist. They happened. But government deniers? Really? For U.S. citizens, the most common interaction with the government is on the road. When you drive down the street or use the sidewalk, you are utilizing something your federal and local governments build and maintain. Yes, that's the government messing up your car's alignment. And along with bridges, dams, drinking water, energy, waterways, levees, publ ic parks, rails, schools and sewage it's all in despera te need of repair. The America n Society of Civil Engineers gave our infrastructure an average of a "D." They also reported it would take $2.2 trillion over five years to bring that grade up to a "B. The American Recovery an d Reinvestment Act of 2009 (AKAThe Stimulus) allotte d $105.3 billion to infrastructure projects. So we're the richest country in the world yet we're spending only 5 percent of what we need in order for our citizens not to die from bridges collapsing and levees buckling. This is the most basic thing the government can d o: fix the potholes. Fix America. Business can't work if we don't have road s. Left, Right or Independent we are all dependent on a functional sewage system and an electrical grid. In light of this, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said his party's top priority top meaning above all else, is to make Obama a one-term presiden t. This is like firemen refus ing to come to your house t o put out a fire because they want the Captain to lose his job. Here's a message from th e people "on the ground:" Knock it off and fix the potholes. Tina Dupuy is an award-winning writer and the editor of FishbowlLA.com.

What's black and white and read all over? Not the white pages, which is why regulators have begun granting telecommunications companies the go-ahead to stop mass-printing residential phone books, a musty fixture of Americans'kitchen counters, refrigerator tops and junk drawers. In the past month alone, New York, Florida and Pennsylvania approved Verizon Communications Inc.'s request to quit distributing residential white pages. Residents in Virginia have until Nov. 19 to provide comments on a similar request pending with state regulators. Telephone companies argue that most consumers now check the Internet rather than flip through pages when they want to reach out and touch someone. "Anybody who doesn't have access to some kind of online way to look thin gs up now is probably too o ld to be able to read the pri nt in the white pages anyway ," joked Robert Thompson, a pop culture professor at Syracuse University. Phone companies no te that eliminating residenti al white pages would redu ce environmental impact b y using less paper and ink. It also can't hurt their botto m lines to cut out the cost of a service that rarely gets us ed and generates little beyon d nostalgia. The first telephone dire ctory was issued in Februa ry 1878 a single page th at covered 50 customers in New Haven, Conn. Th at sheet grew into a book th at became virtually a hous ehold appliance. Fewer people rely o n paper directories for a va riety of reasons.

Afew audience members became emotional as each slide passed and "God Bless America" played in the background. The fourth graders then paid tribute to veterans by singing the official songs of each branch. During The Caisson Song (U.S. Army); Anchors Aweigh (U.S. Navy); Marines'Hymn and The U.S. Air Force Song each of the members of their respective branches were asked to stand and be recognized. At the closing of the program, Cornerstone Hospice Community Relations Coordinator Ginny Wolfe revealed the winner of the art contest. Students at Woodlawn submitted their veteran's art to show thanks to the Veterans. Third-grader Keera Wildes was named the winner. "There were so many great pictures, it was so hard to choose between them all," said Woodlawn Principal Kaye Bowers. The program brought much recognition and honor to the hearts of all Veterans in attendance. Seven-year U.S. Army veteran George Henry was deployed all over the world. Henry was a nuclear biological and chemical non-commissioned officer. Throughout his years of service, Henry trained and equipped his battalion. "My strongest memory was my first deployment. We went to Saudi Arabia ... we had a plane crash it killed a lot of people. I lost a lot of good friends. It's a day I'll never forget," said Henry. Henry was happy to be a part of the program and see other veterans receive recognition that they deserve. "It's a good way to honor the vets and all those we've lost. I enjoyed my time in the military and I hope to inspire my sons to serve," said Henry.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING In what c ould be a long and learning s eason, the Lady Blue S treaks at least started out i n fine fashion, throttling t he Lake Region Thunder, 6 1-41, Tuesday night during t he Pre-Season Classic tourn ament. "We're real young and i t's going to be up and d own," head coach Mike L ee said. "I have five sopho mores playing varsity, so t here will be a learning c urve. But it's a good group o f girls that like to work and are very coachable." Guard Tekera Henderson opened the scoring, draining a three to put t he Thunder up. But a scrappy, hustling S ebring defense would keep t hem off the scoreboard for t he rest of the period. And it was Shannon W illiams that carried the o ffensive load, canning a 1 5-footer and going 4-4 f rom the free throw line. Add in an Allie Mann f loater and four points from S halontay Rose, including a l eaner at the buzzer, and the L ady Streaks had a 12-3 l ead heading into the second q uarter. April Wallace then s tepped up offensively, s coring Sebring's first seven p oints of the period. An Alexxis Harris steal l ead to a Wallace drive on t he break and another drive e arned Wallace a traditional t hree-point play. She then snuck inside and t ook a dish from Carly H offner for a 19-6 lead. But Henderson got hot, s coring seven over the c ourse of the rest of the p eriod to keep Lake Region w ithin reach. But Williams connected f rom downtown, Mann split a pair of free throws and Rose hit two freebies to close the half with a 25-16 margin. The third period was the Shannon Williams show as the Streaks'most effective play seemed to be to have someone else miss a shot and have Williams get the rebound, follow and foul for a three-point play. This happened on backto-back possessions after the Thunder had scored five straight to cut it to 25-21.

RUSSO Associated PressNEWYORK Cam N ewton was on his way to w inning the Heisman Trophy until about a week ago. Now the Auburn quarterb ack is facing allegations that h e and his family sought m oney for him to play at M ississippi State and that he c heated on his school work w hile a student at Florida. Just two months after R eggie Bush returned his H eisman, voters for college f ootball's most famous playe r of the year award have m ore than yards and touchd owns to consider. There is no denying N ewton's worthiness as a p layer. He has performed spectacu larly, transforming No. 2 A uburn into a national champ ionship contender. The 6-foot-6, 250-pound j unior is 10th in the nation in r ushing (114 yards per g ame), second in passer rati ng (182.8) and has accounte d for 35 touchdowns. By Dec. 6, about 925 H eisman voters nationwide w ill be asked to submit a ball ot with three players listed. First-place votes are worth three points, second-place two and third-place one. Most of the voters are media members who cover college football. Previous Heisman winners also get to vote. Nineteen of 23 voters reached by the APon Wednesday said they will judge Newton like any contender unless he is found to have broken rules and been declared ineligible by the NCAA. "If Cam Newton is eligible to play in games at the time my Heisman ballot is due it won't affect how I vote," said Tom Keegan of the Lawrence (Kan.) Journal World. "If serious allegations later are proven true, then they can always take the award back from him. There is time for this to change, but at the moment, the race for the Heisman is a race for second place. He's the best player in college football." Four voters said allegations alone could be enough to dissuade them from putting Newton on their ballot. "I have very serious concerns about what I'm hearing," said Bill Cole of the Winston-Salem (N.C.) Journal. "At this point, I can't envision voting for him. One Reggie Bush tainting the Heisman is enough." Bush won the Heisman in 2005. The NCAAlater determined he and his family received improper benefits and ruled the Southern California star tailback ineligible for the 05 season. The Heisman ballot states: "The recipients must be in compliance with the bylaws defining an NCAAstudent athlete." As the Heisman Trust considered whether to take Bush's Heisman away, he gave it back in September and the 05 award was left vacant. The NCAAis reviewing Newton's recruitment, but Auburn has not received a letter of inquiry, a person told the APlast week on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to comment publicly. Newton started his college career at Florida and was Tim Tebow's backup as a freshman in 2007. He was arrested in November 2008 in Gainesville. Campus police said he stole a $1,700 laptop then threw it out his dormitory window when officers arrived to investigate. The charges were dropped last December when he completed a pretrial intervention program for first-time offenders. Newton has said he bought the stolen computer from someone else. He left Florida in 2009 and landed at Blinn College, a junior college in Texas. He has said he transferred because he didn't want to sit behind Tebow another year. Coming out of Blinn, he was recruited by Mississippi State and former Florida offensive coordinator Dan Mullen, now the Bulldogs' head coach. Newton has said he picked Auburn over Mississippi State because his father wanted him to be closer to the family's Georgia home. In his first season as a major college starting quarterback, Newton has become the Heisman front-runner. Chris Huston runs heismanpundit.com and does a weekly straw poll of 13 voters. He has correctly forecast the top-six finishers in the Heisman voting each of the past two seasons. Newton received 11 firstplace votes in this week's heismanpundit poll, which was compiled before the reports, citing unidentified sources, of academic cheating. Huston said it's not surprising that voters are taking an innocent-until-provenguilty approach. "The question is: When they're actually sitting down and thinking about all the ramifications, what will they do then?" he said. No matter how the story plays out, it will have an effect on the Heisman race, Huston said. "I don't think it necessari ly knocked him out of t he Heisman race, but I thin k he's teetering on the edge of hemorrhaging a lot of votes ," Huston said. Voters will have oth er viable candidates. LaMichael James of No. 1 Oregon leads the nation in rushing, and Kellen Moore of No. 4 Boise State is the cou ntry's leading passer. Had there been no accus ations of improprieties, an d Newton kept playing the w ay he was playing an d Auburn kept on winning the Heisman winner wou ld have been a forgone concl usion heading into the Dec. 11 ceremony in New York. Now, no matter how we ll Newton plays it might not be enough. "I hope I'm like the oth er 900-plus voters who w ill judge Newton's merits on t he field and allow these off-th efield matters to be resolve d, hopefully very soon," sa id Kirk Bohls of the Aust in (Texas) American-Statesma n.

I u nderstand that breast cancer runs in f amilies, so now I'm scared to death so I 'm getting tests done myself. Can you o ffer advice from your natural perspect ive? R.Y. Seattle Answer: Let me say upfront that an a nti-cancer lifestyle and thereissuch a thing is also an anti-breast cancer l ifestyle. It includes eating fresh, o rganic fruits and vegetables, less m eat, less processed food (way less!), n o smoking, losing weight and exercisi ng. There are many things one can do t o erect a powerful protective barrier. A t or near the top of my supplement l ist is flax seed. Besides serving as a great source of d etoxifying fiber and essential fatty a cids, flax seeds contain a whopping p ortion of "lignans" a plant chemical t hat your body converts to a hormonel ike compound that resembles estrogen ( termed phytoestrogens). Many studies s how that people who eat a lignan-rich d iet have a lower incidence of breast, c olon, and prostate cancer. P hytoestrogens fit nicely into your c ells'estrogen-receptor sites, thereby p reventing dangerous estrogens from c ausing problems like breast cancer. T his is a much simplified explanation, but you get the idea. Ground up flax seeds provide hundreds of times more lignans than any other plant. Flax seeds pack such an anti-cancer punch that they may benefit women with active breast cancer. One randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study (that's the most rigorous kind of scientific study) found positive results in post-menopausal women who had breast cancer. Participants had to eat muffins that were baked either with flax seeds or without (placebo). The cancer cells stopped growing aggressively in the group of women who ate muffins containing flax seed, and some of the cancer cells even died (apoptosis). Of course, I'm not advocating flax seeds as the cure for breast cancer, but it's clear that flax can zap cancer cells to some extent. You can buy the fresh seeds at health food stores and even some grocery stores. Grind up one tablespoon daily and sprinkle it on salads or greens, or into your fruit smoothie. Do bother to grind them up. Don't try to save time by swallowing a mouthful of seeds because you'll chew for an hour! I use both the seeds and flax seed oil several times a week, but I prefer the ground seeds because of the higher lignan content and fiber. If you have breast cancer in your family, I completely understand your urgency to do anything you can to keep this dreaded disease at bay. Flax seeds are just one of more than a dozen superfoods and supplements that I recommend to prevent breast cancer (and prostate cancer).

Flax seed protects against breast and prostate cancer Dear Pharmacist Suzy Cohen Cataracts are one of t he more common ocular c onditions we see in the o ptometric profession. M ost of us will develop c ataracts as a natural c ourse of aging over t ime, and eventually n eed to have them r emoved. Acataract is simply a n opacification of the n ormally clear cryst alline lens located d irectly behind the iris, o r colored part of the eye. As the o pacity becomes more dense o ver time, it hinders the patient's a bility to see as well as they o nce did. Depending on the type o f cataract that forms, comp laints may consist of: blurred v ision (more at distance than at n ear), glare (especially at night w ith oncoming headlights or s treetlights), difficulty reading ( due to the sensation of dimness, o r not having enough light), r educed color perception, or may n ot present with any complaints a t all. Cataracts result from a variety o f causes. The most common r eason for developing a cataract i s age. Trauma (ocular or head c ontusion), toxic (use of steroids a nd other medications), and i ntraocular inflammation can all l ead to cataracts. Radiation, i ntraocular tumors, and degenera tive ocular disease (i.e. retinitis p igmentosa) are also associated w ith cataract development. C ertain systemic diseases are l inked to cataract formation, i ncluding: diabetes (cataracts o ften develop rapidly), hypocalc emia, Wilson's disease, myotoni c dystrophy, and Down's synd rome to name a few. More than 1.7 million cataract s urgeries are performed every y ear in the United States. A c ataract does not have to be ripe" before surgery takes place, s ince the risk of complications f rom surgery are small. Today, 2 .75 mm incisions are the stand ard. Sutures are rarely necess ary and recovery time is rapid. When a cataract is removed, a m an-made implant is inserted in i ts place in order to improve the p atient's vision. Fortunately, t echnology continues to improve. N ew implants are available that c an allow patients to have dist ance, intermediate, and near v ision, in many cases without the u se of bifocals. Just a few examples of the late st technology in premium i mplants include: the ReSTOR m ultifocal and Crystalens. Each p remium lens has distinct chara cteristics that make them an i deal match for certain patients. The early results of the ReSTOR multifocal indicate that it provides predictable visual acuity, a greater depth of focus, as well as UV protection. Only your eye surgeon can determine if one of these newer multifocal implants would be right for you. Whenever a patient's vision is not good enough to accommodate his lifestyle, cataract surgery is necessary. Referral to a cataract surgeon is appropriate when the patient's vision cannot be improved with a change in glasses. Cataract surgery may be performed for reasons other than to improve visual acuity. Surgery may be needed as therapy for ocular disease (i.e. lens-related glaucoma) or to manage ocular disease more effectively (i.e. monitoring diabetic retinopathy). Areferral may be made when the cataract has become so dense that it precludes a view of the back of the eye in a diabetic patient. The eye doctor has to be able to see the retina in order to screen the patient for diabetic retinopathy. In contrast, cataract surgery should be delayed for a longer period of time in patients who have macular degeneration. The visual outcome may not be as good as expected since some of the vision loss may possibly be due to the macular degeneration. Amore dramatic improvement will be noticed by the patient if they can wait for the cataract to progress to a more mature level. If a patient with macular degeneration chooses not to wait, they need to understand that cataract removal may not improve their vision in the way they expect. Brightness and color perception may be better, but it's impossible to guarantee improvement in clarity depending on the severity of the macular degeneration. It is rare in today's age of medical technology for a cataract to require urgent treatment. Those patients who decline surgical removal of their cataracts should be reexamined every year, or sooner if there is a noticeable decline in their vision.

Variety of causes are behind cataracts Focal Point Dr. Valerie Moulds Maria Belen Farias/University of Florida Margaret O. James, Ph.D., professor and chairwoman of medicinal chemistry in the UF College of Pharmacy. Special to the New-SunGAINESVILLE Achemical found in everything from antibacterial soaps and lotions to socks and toothpaste may disrupt an enzyme that plays an important role in pregnancy, University of Florida researchers say. Thought to be harmless, triclosan gives many soaps and lotions their antibacterial oomph and is found in hundreds of popular products. But a team of UF researchers led by Margaret O. James, Ph.D., has discovered that the chemical hinders an enzyme linked to the metabolism of estrogen. The researchers'findings are reported in the November print issue of the journal Environment International. In pregnancy, this enzyme, called estrogen sulfotransferase, helps metabolize estrogen and move it through the placenta into the developing fetus. There, the estrogen plays a crucial role in brain development and the regulation of genes. "We suspect that makes this substance dangerous in pregnancy if enough of the triclosan gets through to the placenta to affect the enzyme," said James, a professor and chairwoman of medicinal chemistry in the UF College of Pharmacy. "We know for sure it is a very potent inhibitor. What we don't know is the kinds of levels you would have to be exposed to to see a negative effect. "We know it is a problem, but we don't know how much of a problem. We need to move forward and do additional studies." In pregnancy, the placenta basically serves as a developing baby's in-womb survival kit. Almost everything the fetus gets from its mother namely food and oxygen comes through the placenta. It also creates important hormones, such as progesterone and estrogen. Aside from the role it plays in the fetus, estrogen also affects how much oxygen the baby gets from the mother, said Charles Wood, Ph.D., a professor and chairman of physiology and functional genomics in the UF College of Medicine and a coauthor of the study. All of the oxygen a baby gets from its mother flows through the mother's uterine artery. Without enough estrogen, this artery can constrict, decreasing blood flow. "If you don't make enough estrogen you can, we think, starve the baby of enough oxygen," Wood said. Estrogen is also involved in signaling the uterus to contract during labor.

Continued from page 9B RELIGION As women of God, we h ave responsibilities in life t hat can become tiring and m onotonous. We have a h uman tendency to want to c omplain about getting up i n the mornings to go to w ork, church, go help s omeone in need, take care o f our husbands and child ren, etc. Some of us can even b ecome resentful because o f all that is required of us o r feel like we are simply s urviving and going t hrough motions. What is t he cause of this, and how c an this attitude be prevente d? God's word tells us in C olossians 3:22-24 what is e xpected of us and what o ur attitude should be. We are born with a sin n ature, and we will always b attle our flesh. Our flesh w ants what it wants when it w ants it. Our flesh is selfs eeking. We naturally want t o feel appreciated, recogn ized and loved for what w e do as women, regardless o f what we do. In order to avoid becomi ng resentful, we should c onsider why we do what w e do. If our heart and m otives are right with God, t hen our reasoning for why w e do what we do should be about pleasing the Lord. We are to exercise a servant's heart through the working of the Holy Spirit in us. In other words, it is not about us, it is about God and the loving attitude we should have toward our husbands, children, the people we work for and with, or anyone. Colossians 3:22-24 gives more explanation in regards to pleasing God in what we do. We should consider ourselves to be a slave to Christ wholeheartedly. "Bondservants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh, not with eyeservice, as menpleasers, but in sincerity of heart, fearing God. And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ." Colossians 2:22-24 refers more to the Christian home. Colossians 3:17 takes this concept a little further and this passage can apply to all that we do. "And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him." I Corinthians 13:4-7 remind us that we should not be self-seeking. As we depend on the Lord to meet the needs of our husband, children, people we work with, friends, etc., He will in turn meet our needs and reward us as shown in Colossians 3:24. Afinal point to consider is that when we do what we do to the glory of God, we are also worshipping Him through our obedience. "I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service" (Romans 12:1).

Snapshots Come To The River Leslie Deese Church News Acouple of weeks ago I asked if you loved your family enough to pray for them. That's a good starting point but there's more. If you are a like a lot of church-going people, you pray and pray, and pray some more and you wonder if anyone is really listening. You try to have faith, and you sort of believe, but you wonder if God would really answer your prayers. Why would God listen to you? I'm glad you asked. If you have ever asked God to forgive you of your sins and to take up residence in your heart, and be your Lord and Savior (and meant every word), then you are His child and He delights in doing things for you. You can't earn the privilege of being heard by Him. He has plans for your life and for those you love. Now you have a job to do. God saves us for the purpose of prayer. As we pray we have fellowship with Him. As we fellowship with Him we see His great love for a lost and dying world on its way to hell. We have compassion on them and want to tell them what God has done for us through His Son, Jesus Christ. Our purpose, then, is to pray for our lost family members to find their own relationship with God through Christ. We want them to be saved from the punishment for their sin. We must pray for them, and as opportunity presents itself, with all the love we possess, warn them about an eternity without God. We must then tell our friends. Pray for them an d look for opportunities to show them God's love. What does all of this have to do with ma rriage, you ask? It's simple. We are to love our neighbors as ourselves (Matt. 5:43; 19:18, 19; 22:39; and Mark 12:31). If you have a neighbor closer than your husband your marriage is in serious trouble. If your family can't see the love of God in you, they'll never believe God could love them. They will think you're a hypocrite. It is a daunting task at times, but Philippians 4:13 reminds us that all things are possible through Christ. Aleta Kay can be reached at themarriagementor@yahoo.com Why should I pray? The Marriage Mentor Aleta Kayt Classified ads get results! Call 385-6155 One evening during a church service the L ord put a picture in my mind. I saw a m ountain of people and things I've been concerned" over. These people and things h ave taken my energies, time, focus, crea tive juices, etc., from me. Issues I can do n othing about, except worry. He showed m e the enemy of my soul telling me to b ow down and worship that mountain. And I could see where, in the past, I had done j ust that. Achoice needed to be made. We do have a choice. We can choose to w orship God (daily) or we can give our t ime, energies, etc. to that mountain and w orship it. We can't change people; God d oesn't expect us to. He gave each of us o ur own will, to do what we want, along w ith consequences, good and bad. Some t hings can be dealt with, some can't. So w e do what we can, then trust God for the r est. This Thanksgiving we can be grateful f or the blessings He's given us, or focus on what's missing. This doesn't come easy or overnight. We've practiced worrying all our lives, gotten accustomed to bowing to that mountain, so we'll have to retrain ourselves by focusing on God's Word about the situation and purposely practice it one day at a time. This holiday season let's choose to walk this new concept out. No doubt, it will relieve stress, reduce sickness, end sleepless nights, abolish headaches, etc. But it will take lots of practice and time to begin seeing results, like anything else we "change" in our life. May this holiday season bring you and your family love, peace and joy as you destress by focusing on the One who has it all in control, instead of "Mount Worry," which offers no solutions or answers.

It's glossy, moves quickly e nough and has a few enjoya ble personalities. Maybe the i ntermittent laugh. But afterw ard you realize it tried to c ram a whole lot of vapid s tuff into one compact time f rame, and despite all the h ard work that must have t aken place behind the s cenes, you haven't really l earned anything and you're n o better for having w atched. The hardest-working of all h as got to be Rachel M cAdams as plucky, driven B ecky Fuller, a young prod ucer who has dreamed of w orking at the "Today" s how since she was 8 years o ld. Instead, Becky is asked t o help keep the fourth-place Daybreak" alive. The netw ork's head of news (Jeff G oldblum) isn't thrilled a bout hiring her, but no one e lse has stuck around for m ore than a year or so, so he d ecides to give her a shot. Or perhaps the sheer force o f her perkiness wears him d own. The fast-talking M cAdams is on overdrive t he whole time, a whirlwind o f messy hair, flying papers a nd random thoughts. She's c onstantly checking her B lackBerry and always has o ne eye on the television in c ase news breaks. Singlem inded news junkies like B ecky absolutely exist in the r eal world per capita, t hey're not the most enjoya ble people to be around b ut McAdams'unflappable c uteness makes the character m ore tolerable than she m ight have been in another a ctress'hands. But director Roger M ichell's film, from a script b y "The Devil Wears Prada" w riter Aline Brosh M cKenna, falls into that a nnoying movie shorthand of s oftening her appearance and d emeanor once she falls for a fellow producer. And who c ould blame her? He's p layed by Patrick Wilson. So a ll of a sudden, she finds t ime to style her hair in delic ate waves and acquires a s ofter, more feminine w ardrobe. Trouble is, the r elationship never feels plaus ible and the two barely h ave any chemistry. The o bligatory obstacle to their u ltimate happiness comes o ut of nowhere, and when t hey do get back together ( no big shocker there), it's h ard to care. It's also hard to care about t he show's co-anchors b ecause they're so twod imensional. Diane Keaton p lays the breezy Colleen P eck, a former Miss Arizona w ho's been there forever and k nows her way around a f ashion segment. Harrison F ord plays the condescendi ng Mike Pomeroy, formerly t he network's globe-trotting m ain anchor whom Becky h as recruited through a cont ractual loophole to shake t hings up. (She'd fired the p revious male host, played w ith intriguing sleaziness a nd not nearly enough screen t ime by Ty Burrell of Modern Family.") Now, Mike's relegated to t he early-morning news t hat's fluffy a word he f amously refuses to say b ecause it's beneath him. B ecky's task is to get him to do something beyond reading the few hard-news scripts at the top of the show. Acooking segment, maybe. Ford responds throughout with a monotone grumble. The few scenes in which Colleen and Mike allow their simmering offcamera bitterness toward each other to explode on live television make the movie briefly burst to life, but "Morning Glory" never makes the most of this tension. Michell's film has its moments and it makes Manhattan look radiant, but it rarely finds the charm of his best ("Venus") and bestknown work "Notting Hill"). It also fails to say anything insightful about the increasing encroachment of mindless entertainment into serious news; the phenomenon is a mere annoyance to old-school, curmudgeonly Mike. "Morning Glory" does get newsroom culture somewhat right, though, something so many other movies tend to get wrong. You've got your morning meetings with their mix of chaos and crass humor, the misfits who often populate the production side. There's a vaguely amusing running gag involving random guests seen in the background as they wait to go on set. But if heavyweights like Ford and Keaton can't save this show or this movie bit players don't stand a chance.Fair Game'Despite taking place just a few years ago, this feels like a throwback to the political thrillers of the 1970s: globetrotting and intelligent, serious and substantial, deliberately paced yet filled with mounting suspense. It also boasts excellent performances from Naomi Watts and Sean Penn (no surprise there) as exposed CIAofficer Valerie Plame and her husband, former ambassador Joe Wilson all of which makes it so frustrating when "Fair Game" implodes at the end in a heap of righteous indignation. What happened to Plame and Wilson should make us angry and mistrustful. It should spur us into action, or at least inspire us to become more informed about what our political leaders are doing. But that much is evident from the first moments of director Doug Liman's film, based on a script by brothers Jez and John-Henry Butterworth, which itself is based on Plame and Wilson's memoirs. The film makes its case clearly and efficiently: These people were betrayed by the very government they served. It doesn't need to repeat its points with heavyhanded preaching at the end. Still, until then, "Fair Game" moves well and keeps us riveted, even as it encompasses a great deal of complex material. PG-13 for some language. 106 minutes. Three stars out of four. Christy Lemire, AP Movie CriticFor Colored Girls'For director Tyler Perry, who specializes in extreme melodrama, done quick and cheap, this is not much of a departure. It's based on the Obie Award-winning play, "for colored girls who have considered suicide/ when the rainbow is enuf," by Ntozake Shange. The play, first performed in 1974, was a powerful flow of eloquent, full-blooded testifying by solitary black female characters a "choreopoem," as Shange called it. Perry has gathered nine of its characters in an overlapping narrative centered on a Harlem apartment building. It plays very much like a typical Perry soap opera, with the exception that every now and then his characters spout a poetic soliloquy. The rich language of the ruminations is utterly disconnected from Perry's dialogue, and the film can only go down as a missed opportunity, a work of art that should have been trusted to more capable hands. With a hollow Janet Jackson as a fashion editor, an over-the-top Whoopi Goldberg as a religious zealot and more rounded performances from Tessa Thompson, Anika Noni Rose and Kimberly Elise. R for some disturbing violence including a rape, sexual content and language. 120 minutes. One and a half stars out of four. Jake Coyle, AP Entertainment WriterFour Lions' If the Three Stooges tried to carry out their own Islamic jihad, the results could not be funnier than director Chris Morris'wonderfully absurdist nightmare about terrorist wannabes. Riz Ahmed, Nigel Lindsay, Kayvan Novak, Adeel Akhtar and Arsher Ali play a group of phenomenally incompetent British Muslims aiming to carry out a round of suicide bombings. This is a movie that will have you gasping in horror even as you choke on your own guffaws. The stuff these guys say and do from the motions they make to confound possible camera surveillance to tweaking "The Lion King" into a jihadist parable makes this one of the funniest movies of the year. It's also one of the scariest and saddest. As these "lions" approach their goal of sacrificing their lives in acts of mass murder, we cringe and hope they'll turn aside from their plot, not only because of the innocent lives they aim to take, but because we've actually come to care about these idiots, the way we care about Curly, Larry and Moe. R for some language, including sexual references throughout. 97 minutes. Three and a half stars out of four. David Germain, AP Movie Writer Paramount Pictures Rachel McAdams stars as Becky Fuller and Harrison Ford stars as Mike Pomeroy in Morning Glory.' DIVERSIONS Morning Glory' a sunny, vapid hodgepodge DearAbby: Last year for Thanksgiving, I made a special effort to get the entire family together for the traditional meal. All 13 of us met at my mother's home and everyone was to bring a dish or two to share. One of my brothers has two college-age daughters. Both are vegan, and he insisted that all the dishes we brought be vegan. I did it, but I resented it because I felt that two out of 13 people should not decide the menu. If they wanted vegan dishes, they should bring something for themselves, while the rest of us brought what we wanted. My brother and nieces are now asking what we're doing this year for Thanksgiving. Frankly, I don't want to go through that again. Am I wrong in thinking everyone should not bend over backward for the vegan meal? I don't mind some of the menu accommodating them, but I don't think the whole dinner should be altered. Turkey Eater in Texas DearTurkey Eater: Neither do I. And the response you should give your brother (and his daughters) is that you'll be serving a traditional Thanksgiving dinner this year, so they can either bring something they will enjoy or make other plans. DearAbby: I read your column every day and find it interesting and useful. Many of the writers have the same emotions and problems as I do. I'm always pleased to see that I am not too far off. I am a woman who married for the second time after 54 years of marriage. I was 71 and had been a widow for only one year. I had married my late husband at 16, and thought I could not live alone. Do you have any words of wisdom for someone such as myself? Older people are so set in their ways that blending is so very difficult. Having Trouble in Florida DearHaving Trouble: If you remarried only because you were afraid of living alone, then you did it for the wrong reason. There are worse things than living alone and one of them is being married to a person who is unwilling to compromise. The keys to a successful union are affection, communication respect and compromise. If both parties sincerely care about and respect each other, the union will be successful and lasting. DearAbby: My wife recently attended her 35th high school reunion alone Her high school sweethea rt was there, and they talked and exchanged e-mail addresses. As the night wore on, he started makin g advances and my wife rebuffed him somewhat rudely. Three days later, she e-mailed him an apolo gy and they started an eight-week exchange. I suspected something was wrong and checked her e-mails, where I discovered some pretty torri d messages and a dinner meeting being planned. When I confronted my wife, she denied everything until I gave her copies of the e-mails. She says they never met, but I say the intent was there. T o me, this is the same as a physical affair. She disagrees. Who is right? Deceived in Louisian a DearDeceived: You ar e. The only thing that prevented things from proceeding further was the fact that you intervened. And if your wife had been proud of what she was doing she wouldn't have lied to you.

LIVING 12B PAGE News-Sun Friday, November 12, 2010 Illustration courtesy of Getty Imag e FAMILYFEATURES W hether you're approaching age 65 or already enrolled in Medicare, the annual enrollment period for 2011's Medicare plans is an important time. When it comes to prescription coverage, seniors are seeing some of the biggest changes since the Medicare prescription benefit became available in 2006. The changes from having fewer options to premium increases to new discounts on brand-name drugs are enough to make anyone's head spin. But, seniors who don't take the time to research their options and choose the plan that best suits their needs could leave hundreds of dollars in annual premium savings on the table. In fact, according to a recent study by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, only about 10 percent of participants change plans annually. Staying put and not investigating your options, however, could impact your overall costs. But how do you know if you have the best plan already or if you should consider a different plan? Luckily, there are a few tools that can help with the decision-making process. But first, let's start with the basics and what is changing this year.AccesstoprivateplansBeneficiaries have access to the Medicare drug benefit, known as Part D, through private plans approved by the federal government, either through stand-alone prescription drug plans (PDPs) or Medicare Advantage prescription drug plans (MAPDs). According to a Kaiser Family Foundation study in October 2010, of those who purchase Part D coverage, 38 percent, or 17.7 million beneficiaries, opt for stand-alone plans. Twenty-four percent, or 11.1 million, are enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans.Planoptions in2011While shopping around could save many seniors money, some beneficiaries have no option other than to find a new plan for next year. For 2011, the federal government directed insurers to eliminate duplicative Part D prescription drug plans and plans with low enrollment. That means a third fewer prescription drug plans will be offered nationwide next year compared to 2010, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation, and many of the remaining options may come with higher premiums. And with the federal government changing the way it reimburses health plans through Medicare Advantage, some insurers have quit offering their Medicare Advantage plans for next year. If your plan is no longer being offered, you may need to find alternative coverage.Enrollment periodsBeneficiaries have a six-week annual enrollment period from Nov. 15 to Dec. 31 to pick a Part D plan for 2011. For Medicare Advantage enrollees, it is especially important to pick the right plan during that period. Unlike previous years, people enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans can no longer switch to other Medicare Advantage plans during January, February and March. However, while this "open enrollment period" will not be available in 2011, after Jan. 1, enrollees can still leave their Advantage plan and go back to original Medicare. "Doughnut hole"reliefHere's some good news: there is a new 50 percent discount on the formulary's brand-name drugs for those who land in the program's coverage gap, also called the "doughnut hole." In addition, plans will pay 7 percent of the cost for generic drugs in the gap. This applies to drugs that are on the plan's formulary. If they aren't on the formulary there may be no discount, so make sure you check.HowtomaximizeyourcostsavingsIn 2011, there are lots of changes on tap when it comes to Medicare Advantage and prescription drug plans. But open enrollment is a great time to review your coverage. These DOs and DON'Ts can help ensure you are maximizing your cost savings. HowtocompareplansEachplanhasdifferentfeaturesandeachpersonhasuniqueprescription needs so it's important to find the plan that is best for you. Here are some things to keep in mind: Cost and coverage: Plans vary in the coverage offered and how much they cost. Consider the cost of premiums and whether it includes prescription coverage while in the gap. Pharmacy: Someplansrestrictwhereyoucanuseyourdrugplan. Determine whether your desired pharmacy is included in the plan you choose. For example, new this year are some plans whose monthly premiums fall well below the average price for Part D policies. However, these lower-cost plans come with some restrictions. The copays and coinsurance for prescription drugs are lowest when using preferred pharmacies; they increase for outside pharmacies. Formulary changes: Insurers may change drug formularies each year. Make sure you enroll in a Part D plan that covers your medications. Otherlimitations: In some cases, a plan may limit the circumstances under which a drug is covered. Certain medications may only be covered after prior authorization, after you've tried other drugs through a process called step therapy, or in certain doses and quantities. Comparing plans can be overwhelming, but there are easy-touse online tools such as www.PlanPrescriber.com that can take you through a four step process to narrow down your options and identify the most cost-effective plan. If you have a low income and struggle to pay for your prescription drugs, you may qualify for the Extra Help/Low-Income Subsidy (LIS) program. For more information, go to http://www.PlanPrescriber.com/medicare-part-d/ extra-help/ or https://secure.ssa.gov/apps6z/i1020/main.html.For additional resources on Medicare, go to Medicare.gov. Though it may seem overwhelming at first, taking the time to research your best option for Medicare prescription drug coverage could really pay off.DOcheck to ensure yourmedications are still covered. Check your prescription drug plan each year because insurers may change which medications are covered. You can enter your medications on websiteslikewww.PlanPrescriber.comto see which drugs are covered and compare the projected costs with other plans.DOpay attention to the drug limitations in yourplan. Even if your medication is on the formulary, a plan may limit the circumstances under which a drug is covered. They may only be covered after prior authorization, after you've tried other drugs through a process called step therapy, or in certain doses and quantities.DOconsiderall youroptions. Medicare supplemental plans, or Medigap, have their own six-month open enrollment period, beginning the day you turn 65 and are enrolled in Medicare Part B. The enrollment period for Medicare Advantage and stand-alone prescription drug plans is Nov. 15 to Dec. 31 2010.DON'Tgo on auto-pilot. Many plans change cost and drug coverage annually. What worked last year for you could cost you more money this year in terms of higher prescription drug costs and other out-ofpocket expenses.DON'Tbe afraid to ask forhelp from qualified professionals. You can get help through your State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP), PlanPrescriber, licensed health insurance agents who are certified to sell Medicare, family members or by calling 1-800-Medicare.DON'Tthink that stable premiums = stable coverage. Just because your premiums haven't gone up doesn't mean that you are getting the same plan for the same price next year.

s horeline, Lake Clay collects the most o f the raw run-off in its area. Right now permits are being pulled a nd preparations being made. The proje ct should be completed by late summ er. A25-foot by 300-foot section of the T owers north end parking lot will be d ug up and replaced with a bermed r etention pond to include French d rains. Anative scrub habitat will be c reated to help further filter water and h old soil. The project is a complicated, but c ooperative, blend of jurisdictions and r esources. According to Worley, when it b ecame apparent recently that Florida w as not meeting its own environmental s tandards for clean lake water, Gov. C harlie Crist ordered water districts to i dentify projects to solve the problem. Southwest Florida Water M anagement District conducted studies o n 61 lakes in its region which e ncompasses DeSoto and Hardee count ies, and portions of Highlands, C harlotte and Polk counties recogn izing five lakes in Highlands County i n need of intervention. Lake Clay was deemed the most criti cally at risk to go into decline, and so w as placed at the top of the list. The other lakes scheduled for similar w ork this fiscal year are Tulane and I sis in Avon Park. According to Worley, lakes McCoy and June in Lake Placid should be on the project list for fiscal year 20112012. This is putting money to good use, said Oakley, as he pointed down at Lake Clay. He was not only referring to the various SWFMD projects throughout the county, but to the partnerships which developed as diverse agencies banded together to make the projects happen. For example, in the case of Lake Clay private property was involved. Asignificant easement 25 feet by 300 feet was needed in the northern end of the Towers parking lot. The town, while having jurisdiction in the case, did not feel it could afford to pay for an easement, or guarantee its maintenance. Worley said the private citizen rose to the challenge, donating the land and agreeing to maintain it. We really appreciate what (the owner) is doing, said Worley. He is the only one who could help. He did, and he didnt have to. SWFMD provided $380,000 in funding, but required matching funds. The county side had to come up with $120,000. Soil and Water Conservation put up $10,000 and the Tourist Development Council lakes being a major attraction for the area provided $40,000, leaving only $70,000 to be covered by the county commission. Worley emphasized SWFMDs contributions. She said by paying for the needed preliminary studies, SWFMD had saved the county an additional tens of thousands of dollars. www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, November 12, 2010Page 3A News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY Board members of the Southwest Florida Water Management District and the Peace River Basin, visited Highlands County Wednesday morning.

In the budget, $1.9 million was set aside in 2007 for the purchase and the move, and according to county staff, over $640,000 is still available for renovations. Currently, the elections office occupies just 3,000 square feet of office space on the second floor of the Government Center at 603 S. Commerce. The change will allow elections to expand their training facilities, add a vault, and give them more storage for their paperwork. I want to get permission now so that Ramone (Gavarrete, county engineer) can get started on t he drawings now so we can g et the jump on the next ele ctions, Campbell sai d. With this move, we wou ld be set for the next 15 to 2 0 years. This would allow him to keep all of his equipme nt consolidated in one area , said Rick Helms, interi m county administrator.

Continued from page 1A Elections office ready to move into bigger home By SETH BORENSTEIN APScience WriterWASHINGTON The cost of NASAs replacement for the Hubble Space Telescope is giving new meaning to the word astronomical, growing another $1.5 billion, according to a new internal NASAstudy released Wednesday. NASAs explanation: Were better rocket scientists than accountants. Management and others didnt notice that key costs for the James Webb Space Telescope werent included during a major program review in July 2008, officials said. The study says in the best case scenario it will now cost about $6.5 billion to launch and run the powerful, new telescope. And that can happen only if NASAadds an extra $500 million in the next two years over current budget plans. If the agency cant get the extra money from Congress, it will ultimately cost even more and take longer to launch the telescope. Before now, the cost of the telescope had already ballooned from $3.5 billion to $5 billion. NASAofficials said they had not done a good job of figuring out the confirmation cost for the massive telescope. The report said the budget in 2008 understated the real requirements and managers didnt realize how inadequate it was. We were missing a certain fraction of what was going on, NASAassociate administrator Chris Scolese said in a late Wednesday afternoon teleconference. The Webb telescope, we hope is just an aberration, Scolese said, but suggested there may be other budget-busting projects. He said the agency is now reviewing all its projects to see if there are similar cases of poor budgeting. The costs arent because of problems with the technology, design or construction of the instrument. NASAsaid, technically, it is in good shape. NASAs new space telescope costs shoot the moon Associated PressSAN DIEGO Six tug boats pulled a s tricken cruise ship to shore Thursday morni ng amid cheers from a waiting crowd, bringi ng the nearly 4,500 passengers and crew c loser to freedom after three days of limited f ood, smelly toilets and dark cabins. Escorted by Coast Guard cutters, the nearl y 1,000-foot Carnival Splendor reached the d ock at about 8:30 a.m. PST. and passengers w ere expected to begin disembarking two to t hree hours later, port officials said. Seventy-five buses were arriving to drive them north to Long Beach, where the Splendor is based. Passengers on the decks and about 100 people onshore cheered loudly as the ship reached the dock, while all along the harbor, tourists, joggers and fishermen stopped to snap photos. Were so happy to be getting off. Everybodys been cheering and clapping, passenger Sahizah Alim, 26, of Sacramento, said by cell phone. Its been like a nightmare, she said. Theres been no food, no power, no electricity, no flushing toilets. I spent the night tossing and turning in my cabin in the dark. Passengers cheer as ship towed into port Continued from page 1A By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Two of H ighlands County long time s chool board members s erved at their last meeting T uesday. Rev. Richard N orris and Wally Randall r eceived many handshakes a nd goodbyes as they spent t he beginning of their e vening at their farewell r eception. Their years of service on t he board have been long a nd hard as each of the men h ave had to share time b etween their families and t heir other positions within t he community. Randall, who resigned as c hairperson of the Highlands C ounty School Board, s erved 10 years; Norris s erved eight. Each of the m en both spent a year prior t o being elected studying a nd learning what it was a board member does before running for the positions. Norris was defeated back in August by Bill Brantley. Brantley and Ronnie Jackson will be sworn in to their positions as board members on next Monday, replacing Norris and Randall. We are sad to see him go, hes just been here for so long, Pat Khule, secretary to Superintendent Wally Cox, said of Randall. But we are losing him to such a good thing, said Khule. Randall will be leaving the school board to continue his work as Highlands County Boys and Girls Club executive director. Ill still be around, said Randall with a chuckle. Norris also isnt planning to go anywhere. He plans to still serve the community through his pastoral messages as well as attending frequent board meetings. Ill be sitting right out in that crowd with all of you from now on. Im not going anywhere, Norris said. The Norris and Randall families were both in attendance. Norris was accompanied by his wife and children, including his new daughter-in-law, and Randall spent the evening with his spouse, children and two young grandkids. The board also lost a second group of people on Tuesday evening. The AD Morgan Corporation was recognized as they completed their final construction project for Highlands County schools. The board presented AD Morgan with a plaque commemorating their many years as the company that created better, safer, and exceptional schools for the students of the community. School board says goodbye to Randall and Norris News-Sun photo by SAMANTHAGHOLAR W ally Randall spends his last evening as chairperson of the Highlands County School Board with his two grandchildren, Alaina (23 months) and Joshua (3) Lemler. Randall smiled as he told the crowd young Alaina would have his seat one day.

R ecently, inquiries by the press i nto what the count y government is d oing has been met w ith the answer t hat there is no b ig conspiracy h ere.But, if the county is not f orthcoming with the inform ation, then yes, there is a c onspiracy. Even if it is not i ntentional. The conspiracy lies in the c onscious or unconscious e ffort to not let the public k now when things are happ ening within the governm ent. Finding out that something o f significance happened a fter the fact breeds mistrust, a nd raises questions of why d ecisions are made. After-the-fact discoveries a lso lead to an attitude that t he public takes a back seat to t he decision-making process. Those happenings make t he public feel like public i nput is to be tolerated, not v alued. Certainly not an i mportant part of most decis ions. Why? Trust of the government c an be compared to a bank a ccount. Make enough d eposits, even small ones, a nd a withdrawal is not a p roblem. Make too many withd rawals, or dont make d eposits, and the trust a ccount is bankrupt. That l eaves the public suspicious a nd feeling neglected. Case in point is the recent s wearing in of the three new c ounty commissioners. Not really a big deal, and a v ery good effort was made by c ounty staff to make sure that a ll the right paperwork was d one so that the incoming c ommission transition went s mooth. But, the public was not m ade aware ahead of time t hat there would be a potent ial problem if the commiss ioner-elects had not taken t heir oaths or their paperwork was processed before the Nov. 16 commission meeting. Why? Three commissioners are scheduled to be out of office by that date, and that would leave the board without a quorum come that meeting if the incoming group had not taken the oath early. Something that has not happened in the recent memory of, say, the last 20 years. So, the early swearing in of the three new commissioners without public notice prompted citizens to ask why after they discovered that it was going on last Friday morning. Several citizens were even concerned enough to ask why are they taking their oaths in secret? Social media is a very strong tool, and in the modern age of Facebook, Twitter, text messaging and e-mail, the question of why was spread quick as lightning, leaving not just a couple, but literally several hundred citizens with the same question. Why? The curiosity prompted some of those citizens to contact the News-Sun on Friday via phone, text, and e-mail to find out what their government was doing. Since there was not a press release from the county on the matter, the News-Sun began to look into the who, what, where, when and why, not to mention the how, and discovered that indeed all three commissioner-elects were sworn in early last Friday. Swearing in new commissioners early, especially because there may be a problem, is news and something the public needs to know ahead of time to dispel any doubts that the government can function effectively. County staff was wondering why it was a big deal, but the uninformed public was wondering why it was going on. Even two of the new commissioners stated they had no idea that they would actually be sworn in early. Is there really a big conspiracy, intentional or unintentional, to keep certain information away from the public? The answer lies in looking at the county, or even the local municipality, Web sites. Are they up to date? Should they be? Ask to see the county code book of ordinances. That law book is not available in any of the public office counters where any citizen can just walk up and take a look, and any updates take up to three months to be posted on the Web site. And asking for some public records could cost a regular citizen hundreds in research fees. These actions, and other withdrawals from the public trust account, make it clear that keeping information from the public may indeed sometimes be a big unintentional conspiracy. It is also clear that informing the public is definitely not a priority of local government. And that still leaves the big question out there...Why?

Spider web woes begin in Avon Park E ditor: Im not sure if some of the c itizens of Avon Park realize t he spider web that has starte d to grow in Avon Park. T he new city manager comes i n and appoints Maria S utherland in a new position a s assistant city manager ( not a city position or in the b udget). Then Maria S utherland, of course, supp orts her husband in the race f or city council, but she also h elped support the mayor in w inning the election; not s ure how ethical this was as b ecoming the assistant city m anager and just recently h olding the position of acti ng city manager. So now the web has starte d. Two of the recent elect ion winners that were supp orted by a key employee of t he city have an impact on k eeping and funding the a ssistant city manager posit ion have now either been r e-elected or voted in on the c ouncil. Oh what a web has s tarted to be weaved in the r unning of the city of Avon P ark. Even though the mayor a lready has a puppy dog on t he council, I hope she is s trong enough to keep the w eb from spinning out of c ontrol. We do need some h awkish citizens to keep an eye on what goes on. Citizens need to step back and take a look at possible issues that could arise. And, of course, Mr. (Parke) Sutherland will have to step down as the citys special magistrate and wont be able to represent anybody involving city cases; it would not be ethical. The city of Avon Park is too small to justify a position of assistant city manager and has been rejected in the past; we dont need more managers or executives, which cost more money. If the council did decide to add the assistant city manager position, it should become a charter officer like the city managers position, which would mean Mr. Sutherland would not be able to vote on the budget if his wife held this position. I hope some people now see some interesting scenarios. Ed Dickerson Avon ParkOklahoma is beautiful productionEditor: Oh, what a beautiful play! The musical, Oklahoma, is a beautiful production. The Highlands Little Theatre can be very proud of their latest effort, and the communitys support of the show is evident. This is a love story set against the backdrop of our nations history filled with memorable music. Sundays afternoon performance had most seats filled, and the production received a standing ovation from the attentive audience. The music, the actors, the sets and especially the lighting effects combine to make a wonderful theatre experience. You can even take home a dessert as there is a pie auction during intermission to get the audience ready for the basket lunch auction in the second act when Curly Jud competes for Laureys basket. Call or go online and get your tickets today. You do not want to miss this show; it runs for two more weeks. 382-2525 or www.highlandslittletheatre.org Olivia Scott Avon ParkBio-fuels could double price of cornEditor: I would be very careful of what we wish for, because we might get it. All of this hoopla about bio-fuels, that is, could just be another big scam for our agricultural department and our government to double the price of corn, or any other product that is made from corn. I do not trust our government, or our politicians; they will come up with a new scam to shaft the people out of more money, one way or another. Why not push for hydrogen-powered vehicles, or better batteries for electricpowered vehicles? I predict that anything that is made from corn, whether it is for human food or animal food, will double in price in the very near future. Think about that. Don H. Streeter SebringMeal missed at HLT performanceEditor: As always the actors did a superb job in presenting Oklahoma. The set design, costumes, and all else make a great play. But the powers that be could use a little advice. Cutting out the dinner without even giving the season holders a voice in my opinion was wrong. What used to be a special night out is just a night out. I know my husband and myself would have been more than willing to pay a bit more for our season tickets to keep the dinner. Oh, we might not have really liked the idea. Heck, we dont like the idea of every time we enter a supermarket that prices has risen. But if we want to eat, we pay. As a season ticket holder give me a chance to say if I am willing to pay the increse. Another gripe. Why werent there any waitresses available to take drink orders? The tables were so close together that once you where seated it was almost impossible to get up to go buy a drink. As I see this, this was money lost. Dont get me wrong the play, Oklahoma, was a great play. Alot of hard work went into presenting it. And I do hope any that any who can afford this type of entertainment will make it a point to get out and see Oklahoma. I am sure you will enjoy it to the fullest. Judee VanBrookhoven SebringA huge success for Terror TrailEditor: This years Terror Trail was a huge sucess. Big thank yous to the hundreds of volunteers and the thousands of attendees. Volunteers included Sebring and Avon Park High School, Lake Placid Health Care Center employees and so many others.

Louise Regnier Bouquets Its an odd Americanism to elect someone to be in government who freely admits they dont like government. As if reluctance translates into competence. Oh hell be a great husband, especially since he doesnt believe in marriage. For some reason, we buy the premise of politicians begging to be a part of the thing they are, in theory against. Son of an incumbent seven-term Texas Congressman, Kentuckys Rand Paul, in his first public statement as a governmentemployee-elect, said, Weve come to take our government back. And hes going to do that by cashing a government paycheckreluctantly. Apolitician who is against government is like an actor who is against entertainment. Its ridiculous. Because we hate politicians so much, the only way we can stand inking a bubble next to their name is to pretend they really dont want to do their job. But do Americans actually know what the government is or what the government actually does? Failed Nevada Senate candidate Sharron Angle told a crowd during her campaign, Government isnt what our Founding Fathers put into the Constitution. Yes, the framing document of the U.S. Government has no government in it. At CPAC this year, Fox News Host Glenn Beck told his government-leery audience he learned progressivism is evil by educating himself at public libraries because books are free. Yes, Glenn, they are free because the government funds public libraries with taxes a progressive plot. RNC Chairman Michael Steele said last year, You and I know that in the history of mankind and womankind, governmentfederal, state or localhas never created one job. Its a battle cry repeated by many a Republican, some now working in yes government jobs. Such a sound bite is often said in front of people employed by the U.S. Postal Service (the second largest employer in the country), public school teachers and the U.S. military jobs which the government arguably and factually created. So there are deniers of climate change, evolution, the Holocaust, 9/11, AIDS, Obamas American citizenship, Separation of Church and State and a round Earth. People deny these things in the face of overwhelming evidence. Even though these things exist. They happened. But government deniers? Really? For U.S. citizens, the most common interaction with the government is on the road. When you drive down the street or use the sidewalk, you are utilizing something your federal and local governments build and maintain. Yes, thats the government messing up your cars alignment. And along with bridges, dams, drinking water, energy, waterways, levees, publ ic parks, rails, schools and sewage its all in despera te need of repair. The America n Society of Civil Engineers gave our infrastructure an average of a D. They also reported it would take $2.2 trillion over five years to bring that grade up to a B. The American Recovery an d Reinvestment Act of 2009 (AKAThe Stimulus) allotte d $105.3 billion to infrastructure projects. So were the richest country in the world yet were spending only 5 percent of what we need in order for our citizens not to die from bridges collapsing and levees buckling. This is the most basic thing the government can d o: fix the potholes. Fix America. Business cant work if we dont have road s. Left, Right or Independent we are all dependent on a functional sewage system and an electrical grid. In light of this, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said his partys top priority top meaning above all else, is to make Obama a one-term presiden t. This is like firemen refus ing to come to your house t o put out a fire because they want the Captain to lose his job. Heres a message from th e people on the ground: Knock it off and fix the potholes. Tina Dupuy is an award-winning writer and the editor of FishbowlLA.com. Tina can be reached at tinadupuy@yahoo.com.

Whats black and white and read all over? Not the white pages, which is why regulators have begun granting telecommunications companies the go-ahead to stop mass-printing residential phone books, a musty fixture of Americanskitchen counters, refrigerator tops and junk drawers. In the past month alone, New York, Florida and Pennsylvania approved Verizon Communications Inc.s request to quit distributing residential white pages. Residents in Virginia have until Nov. 19 to provide comments on a similar request pending with state regulators. Telephone companies argue that most consumers now check the Internet rather than flip through pages when they want to reach out and touch someone. Anybody who doesnt have access to some kind of online way to look thin gs up now is probably too o ld to be able to read the pri nt in the white pages anyway , joked Robert Thompson, a pop culture professor at Syracuse University. Phone companies no te that eliminating residenti al white pages would redu ce environmental impact b y using less paper and ink. It also cant hurt their botto m lines to cut out the cost of a service that rarely gets us ed and generates little beyon d nostalgia.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING In what c ould be a long and learning s eason, the Lady Blue S treaks at least started out i n fine fashion, throttling t he Lake Region Thunder, 6 1-41, Tuesday night during t he Pre-Season Classic tourn ament. Were real young and i ts going to be up and d own, head coach Mike L ee said. I have five sopho mores playing varsity, so t here will be a learning c urve. But its a good group o f girls that like to work and are very coachable. Guard Tekera Henderson opened the scoring, draining a three to put t he Thunder up. But a scrappy, hustling S ebring defense would keep t hem off the scoreboard for t he rest of the period. And it was Shannon W illiams that carried the o ffensive load, canning a 1 5-footer and going 4-4 f rom the free throw line. Add in an Allie Mann f loater and four points from S halontay Rose, including a l eaner at the buzzer, and the L ady Streaks had a 12-3 l ead heading into the second q uarter. April Wallace then s tepped up offensively, s coring Sebrings first seven p oints of the period. An Alexxis Harris steal l ead to a Wallace drive on t he break and another drive e arned Wallace a traditional t hree-point play. She then snuck inside and t ook a dish from Carly H offner for a 19-6 lead. But Henderson got hot, s coring seven over the c ourse of the rest of the p eriod to keep Lake Region w ithin reach. But Williams connected f rom downtown, Mann split a pair of free throws and Rose hit two freebies to close the half with a 25-16 margin. The third period was the Shannon Williams show as the Streaksmost effective play seemed to be to have someone else miss a shot and have Williams get the rebound, follow and foul for a three-point play. This happened on backto-back possessions after the Thunder had scored five straight to cut it to 25-21. Harris the canned a long two before another Williams SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Friday, November 12, 2010 Page 3BGame Notes In one of the oldest rivalries in the annalls of Florida high school football,the Blue Streaks and Red Devils began squaring off in 1926,with Sebring holding a 47-40-1 edge. The Streaks are on a four-game winning streak in the series. Sebring QB Matt Grubb continued his climb up the state passing leaders,now at 14th with 1,855 yards and 18 TDs with a passer rating of 137. Last Y ear The Red Devils vaunted ground game was held in check by a strong Sebring defense in a 30-6 loss at Firemens Field.

Lemon Bay: Lost at Braden River, 30-0 Last Y ear The Green Dragons secured their first winning season in a decade,moving to 6-4 with a 41-6 win over the Manta Rays.

Special to the News-SunAVON PARK The Lake Placid Green Dragon boys soccer team escaped with a 20 victory over Avon Park at Joe Franza Stadium Tuesday night in area boys action. Jorge Gomez scored in the seventh minute of the first half after he split two Red Devil defenders and launched a kick that ricocheted off the underside of the goals crossbar and barely crossed the goal line before Red Devil keeper Danny Vasquez could retrieve it. Lake Placid added a penalty kick in the 80th minute on a controversial foul within the Avon Park penalty area. Red Devil defender Dawson Calero almost tied the game in the second half on a direct kick 25 yards straight out from the Dragon goal. Avon Park players danced around the ball and Lake Placid shifted its defense uneasily. Calero blasted the ball, and it slammed into where the front and underside of t he crossbar meet, ricochetin g back onto the field, whe re Dragon defenders cleared i t.

RUSSO Associated PressNEWYORK Cam N ewton was on his way to w inning the Heisman Trophy until about a week ago. Now the Auburn quarterb ack is facing allegations that h e and his family sought m oney for him to play at M ississippi State and that he c heated on his school work w hile a student at Florida. Just two months after R eggie Bush returned his H eisman, voters for college f ootballs most famous playe r of the year award have m ore than yards and touchd owns to consider. There is no denying N ewtons worthiness as a p layer. He has performed spectacu larly, transforming No. 2 A uburn into a national champ ionship contender. The 6-foot-6, 250-pound j unior is 10th in the nation in r ushing (114 yards per g ame), second in passer rati ng (182.8) and has accounte d for 35 touchdowns. By Dec. 6, about 925 H eisman voters nationwide w ill be asked to submit a ball ot with three players listed. First-place votes are worth three points, second-place two and third-place one. Most of the voters are media members who cover college football. Previous Heisman winners also get to vote. Nineteen of 23 voters reached by the APon Wednesday said they will judge Newton like any contender unless he is found to have broken rules and been declared ineligible by the NCAA. If Cam Newton is eligible to play in games at the time my Heisman ballot is due it wont affect how I vote, said Tom Keegan of the Lawrence (Kan.) Journal World. If serious allegations later are proven true, then they can always take the award back from him. There is time for this to change, but at the moment, the race for the Heisman is a race for second place. Hes the best player in college football. Four voters said allegations alone could be enough to dissuade them from putting Newton on their ballot. I have very serious concerns about what Im hearing, said Bill Cole of the Winston-Salem (N.C.) Journal. At this point, I cant envision voting for him. One Reggie Bush tainting the Heisman is enough. Bush won the Heisman in 2005. The NCAAlater determined he and his family received improper benefits and ruled the Southern California star tailback ineligible for the season. The Heisman ballot states: The recipients must be in compliance with the bylaws defining an NCAAstudent athlete. As the Heisman Trust considered whether to take Bushs Heisman away, he gave it back in September and the award was left vacant. The NCAAis reviewing Newtons recruitment, but Auburn has not received a letter of inquiry, a person told the APlast week on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to comment publicly. Newton started his college career at Florida and was Tim Tebows backup as a freshman in 2007. He was arrested in November 2008 in Gainesville. Campus police said he stole a $1,700 laptop then threw it out his dormitory window when officers arrived to investigate. The charges were dropped last December when he completed a pretrial intervention program for first-time offenders. Newton has said he bought the stolen computer from someone else. He left Florida in 2009 and landed at Blinn College, a junior college in Texas. He has said he transferred because he didnt want to sit behind Tebow another year. Coming out of Blinn, he was recruited by Mississippi State and former Florida offensive coordinator Dan Mullen, now the Bulldogs head coach. Newton has said he picked Auburn over Mississippi State because his father wanted him to be closer to the familys Georgia home. In his first season as a major college starting quarterback, Newton has become the Heisman front-runner. Chris Huston runs heismanpundit.com and does a weekly straw poll of 13 voters. He has correctly forecast the top-six finishers in the Heisman voting each of the past two seasons. Newton received 11 firstplace votes in this weeks heismanpundit poll, which was compiled before the reports, citing unidentified sources, of academic cheating. Huston said its not surprising that voters are taking an innocent-until-provenguilty approach. The question is: When theyre actually sitting down and thinking about all the ramifications, what will they do then? he said. No matter how the story plays out, it will have an effect on the Heisman race, Huston said. I dont think it necessari ly knocked him out of t he Heisman race, but I thin k hes teetering on the edge of hemorrhaging a lot of votes , Huston said. Voters will have oth er viable candidates. LaMichael James of No. 1 Oregon leads the nation in rushing, and Kellen Moore of No. 4 Boise State is the cou ntrys leading passer. Had there been no accus ations of improprieties, an d Newton kept playing the w ay he was playing an d Auburn kept on winning the Heisman winner wou ld have been a forgone concl usion heading into the Dec. 11 ceremony in New York. Now, no matter how we ll Newton plays it might not be enough. I hope Im like the oth er 900-plus voters who w ill judge Newtons merits on t he field and allow these off-th efield matters to be resolve d, hopefully very soon, sa id Kirk Bohls of the Aust in (Texas) American-Statesma n. But the ghost of Regg ie Bush could haunt Cam s Heisman chances.

It was a good night with everyone getting a chance to play, Lee said. In spots we looked really good, in others, we didnt look really good and I expect that early in the season. But they played with a lot of energy and stepped up to our goal at the start of each game which is to work hard. The win set up a Thursday match-up with Bartow, 53-51 winners ov er Okeechobee in Tuesday s tournament opener, with t he athletic and experienc ed Yellow Jackets likely pr oviding a much tougher tes t.

And we began to w ork together well at the end o f the game, she said. We h ave only had a chance to p ractice a new offense about a week, but it looked like it was starting to come together.

Rotman, M.D. HEALTHYLIVING Classified Ads 385-6155 NEWS-SUN DearPharmacist: My older sister h ad a mastectomy earlier this year. I u nderstand that breast cancer runs in f amilies, so now Im scared to death so I m getting tests done myself. Can you o ffer advice from your natural perspect ive? R.Y. Seattle Answer: Let me say upfront that an a nti-cancer lifestyle and thereissuch a thing is also an anti-breast cancer l ifestyle. It includes eating fresh, o rganic fruits and vegetables, less m eat, less processed food (way less!), n o smoking, losing weight and exercisi ng. There are many things one can do t o erect a powerful protective barrier. A t or near the top of my supplement l ist is flax seed. Besides serving as a great source of d etoxifying fiber and essential fatty a cids, flax seeds contain a whopping p ortion of lignans a plant chemical t hat your body converts to a hormonel ike compound that resembles estrogen ( termed phytoestrogens). Many studies s how that people who eat a lignan-rich d iet have a lower incidence of breast, c olon, and prostate cancer. P hytoestrogens fit nicely into your c ellsestrogen-receptor sites, thereby p reventing dangerous estrogens from c ausing problems like breast cancer. T his is a much simplified explanation, but you get the idea. Ground up flax seeds provide hundreds of times more lignans than any other plant. Flax seeds pack such an anti-cancer punch that they may benefit women with active breast cancer. One randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study (thats the most rigorous kind of scientific study) found positive results in post-menopausal women who had breast cancer. Participants had to eat muffins that were baked either with flax seeds or without (placebo). The cancer cells stopped growing aggressively in the group of women who ate muffins containing flax seed, and some of the cancer cells even died (apoptosis). Of course, Im not advocating flax seeds as the cure for breast cancer, but its clear that flax can zap cancer cells to some extent. You can buy the fresh seeds at health food stores and even some grocery stores. Grind up one tablespoon daily and sprinkle it on salads or greens, or into your fruit smoothie. Do bother to grind them up. Dont try to save time by swallowing a mouthful of seeds because youll chew for an hour! I use both the seeds and flax seed oil several times a week, but I prefer the ground seeds because of the higher lignan content and fiber. If you have breast cancer in your family, I completely understand your urgency to do anything you can to keep this dreaded disease at bay. Flax seeds are just one of more than a dozen superfoods and supplements that I recommend to prevent breast cancer (and prostate cancer).

Flax seed protects against breast and prostate cancer Dear Pharmacist Suzy Cohen Cataracts are one of t he more common ocular c onditions we see in the o ptometric profession. M ost of us will develop c ataracts as a natural c ourse of aging over t ime, and eventually n eed to have them r emoved. Acataract is simply a n opacification of the n ormally clear cryst alline lens located d irectly behind the iris, o r colored part of the eye. As the o pacity becomes more dense o ver time, it hinders the patients a bility to see as well as they o nce did. Depending on the type o f cataract that forms, comp laints may consist of: blurred v ision (more at distance than at n ear), glare (especially at night w ith oncoming headlights or s treetlights), difficulty reading ( due to the sensation of dimness, o r not having enough light), r educed color perception, or may n ot present with any complaints a t all. Cataracts result from a variety o f causes. The most common r eason for developing a cataract i s age. Trauma (ocular or head c ontusion), toxic (use of steroids a nd other medications), and i ntraocular inflammation can all l ead to cataracts. Radiation, i ntraocular tumors, and degenera tive ocular disease (i.e. retinitis p igmentosa) are also associated w ith cataract development. C ertain systemic diseases are l inked to cataract formation, i ncluding: diabetes (cataracts o ften develop rapidly), hypocalc emia, Wilsons disease, myotoni c dystrophy, and Downs synd rome to name a few. More than 1.7 million cataract s urgeries are performed every y ear in the United States. A c ataract does not have to be ripe before surgery takes place, s ince the risk of complications f rom surgery are small. Today, 2 .75 mm incisions are the stand ard. Sutures are rarely necess ary and recovery time is rapid. When a cataract is removed, a m an-made implant is inserted in i ts place in order to improve the p atients vision. Fortunately, t echnology continues to improve. N ew implants are available that c an allow patients to have dist ance, intermediate, and near v ision, in many cases without the u se of bifocals. Just a few examples of the late st technology in premium i mplants include: the ReSTOR m ultifocal and Crystalens. Each p remium lens has distinct chara cteristics that make them an i deal match for certain patients. The early results of the ReSTOR multifocal indicate that it provides predictable visual acuity, a greater depth of focus, as well as UV protection. Only your eye surgeon can determine if one of these newer multifocal implants would be right for you. Whenever a patients vision is not good enough to accommodate his lifestyle, cataract surgery is necessary. Referral to a cataract surgeon is appropriate when the patients vision cannot be improved with a change in glasses. Cataract surgery may be performed for reasons other than to improve visual acuity. Surgery may be needed as therapy for ocular disease (i.e. lens-related glaucoma) or to manage ocular disease more effectively (i.e. monitoring diabetic retinopathy). Areferral may be made when the cataract has become so dense that it precludes a view of the back of the eye in a diabetic patient. The eye doctor has to be able to see the retina in order to screen the patient for diabetic retinopathy. In contrast, cataract surgery should be delayed for a longer period of time in patients who have macular degeneration. The visual outcome may not be as good as expected since some of the vision loss may possibly be due to the macular degeneration. Amore dramatic improvement will be noticed by the patient if they can wait for the cataract to progress to a more mature level. If a patient with macular degeneration chooses not to wait, they need to understand that cataract removal may not improve their vision in the way they expect. Brightness and color perception may be better, but its impossible to guarantee improvement in clarity depending on the severity of the macular degeneration. It is rare in todays age of medical technology for a cataract to require urgent treatment. Those patients who decline surgical removal of their cataracts should be reexamined every year, or sooner if there is a noticeable decline in their vision.

She is a member of the American Optometric Association, Arizona Optometric Association and Florida Optometric Association. This information is not intended to diagnose, treat or cure your condition. Variety of causes are behind cataracts Focal Point Dr. Valerie Moulds Maria Belen Farias/University of Florida Margaret O. James, Ph.D., professor and chairwoman of medicinal chemistry in the UF College of Pharmacy. Special to the New-SunGAINESVILLE Achemical found in everything from antibacterial soaps and lotions to socks and toothpaste may disrupt an enzyme that plays an important role in pregnancy, University of Florida researchers say. Thought to be harmless, triclosan gives many soaps and lotions their antibacterial oomph and is found in hundreds of popular products. But a team of UF researchers led by Margaret O. James, Ph.D., has discovered that the chemical hinders an enzyme linked to the metabolism of estrogen. The researchersfindings are reported in the November print issue of the journal Environment International. In pregnancy, this enzyme, called estrogen sulfotransferase, helps metabolize estrogen and move it through the placenta into the developing fetus. There, the estrogen plays a crucial role in brain development and the regulation of genes. We suspect that makes this substance dangerous in pregnancy if enough of the triclosan gets through to the placenta to affect the enzyme, said James, a professor and chairwoman of medicinal chemistry in the UF College of Pharmacy. We know for sure it is a very potent inhibitor. What we dont know is the kinds of levels you would have to be exposed to to see a negative effect. We know it is a problem, but we dont know how much of a problem. We need to move forward and do additional studies. In pregnancy, the placenta basically serves as a developing babys in-womb survival kit. Almost everything the fetus gets from its mother namely food and oxygen comes through the placenta. It also creates important hormones, such as progesterone and estrogen. Aside from the role it plays in the fetus, estrogen also affects how much oxygen the baby gets from the mother, said Charles Wood, Ph.D., a professor and chairman of physiology and functional genomics in the UF College of Medicine and a coauthor of the study. All of the oxygen a baby gets from its mother flows through the mothers uterine artery. Without enough estrogen, this artery can constrict, decreasing blood flow. If you dont make enough estrogen you can, we think, starve the baby of enough oxygen, Wood said. Estrogen is also involved in signaling the uterus to contract during labor. But maintaining the right levels of the hormone during pregnancy is a delicate balance, Wood says. Too much estrogen could send the mothers body into premature labor. Too little could hinder the flow of oxygen. Both instances could affect how the babys brain develops. This is one of the reasons scientists are concerned about the pregnancy-related effects of chemicals such as triclosan. Antibacterial agent could cause pregnancy problems

Continued from page 9B RELIGION As women of God, we h ave responsibilities in life t hat can become tiring and m onotonous. We have a h uman tendency to want to c omplain about getting up i n the mornings to go to w ork, church, go help s omeone in need, take care o f our husbands and child ren, etc. Some of us can even b ecome resentful because o f all that is required of us o r feel like we are simply s urviving and going t hrough motions. What is t he cause of this, and how c an this attitude be prevente d? Gods word tells us in C olossians 3:22-24 what is e xpected of us and what o ur attitude should be. We are born with a sin n ature, and we will always b attle our flesh. Our flesh w ants what it wants when it w ants it. Our flesh is selfs eeking. We naturally want t o feel appreciated, recogn ized and loved for what w e do as women, regardless o f what we do. In order to avoid becomi ng resentful, we should c onsider why we do what w e do. If our heart and m otives are right with God, t hen our reasoning for why w e do what we do should be about pleasing the Lord. We are to exercise a servants heart through the working of the Holy Spirit in us. In other words, it is not about us, it is about God and the loving attitude we should have toward our husbands, children, the people we work for and with, or anyone. Colossians 3:22-24 gives more explanation in regards to pleasing God in what we do. We should consider ourselves to be a slave to Christ wholeheartedly. Bondservants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh, not with eyeservice, as menpleasers, but in sincerity of heart, fearing God. And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ. Colossians 2:22-24 refers more to the Christian home. Colossians 3:17 takes this concept a little further and this passage can apply to all that we do. And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him. I Corinthians 13:4-7 remind us that we should not be self-seeking. As we depend on the Lord to meet the needs of our husband, children, people we work with, friends, etc., He will in turn meet our needs and reward us as shown in Colossians 3:24. Afinal point to consider is that when we do what we do to the glory of God, we are also worshipping Him through our obedience. I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service (Romans 12:1).

Snapshots Come To The River Leslie Deese Church News Acouple of weeks ago I asked if you loved your family enough to pray for them. Thats a good starting point but theres more. If you are a like a lot of church-going people, you pray and pray, and pray some more and you wonder if anyone is really listening. You try to have faith, and you sort of believe, but you wonder if God would really answer your prayers. Why would God listen to you? Im glad you asked. If you have ever asked God to forgive you of your sins and to take up residence in your heart, and be your Lord and Savior (and meant every word), then you are His child and He delights in doing things for you. You cant earn the privilege of being heard by Him. He has plans for your life and for those you love. Now you have a job to do. God saves us for the purpose of prayer. As we pray we have fellowship with Him. As we fellowship with Him we see His great love for a lost and dying world on its way to hell. We have compassion on them and want to tell them what God has done for us through His Son, Jesus Christ. Our purpose, then, is to pray for our lost family members to find their own relationship with God through Christ. We want them to be saved from the punishment for their sin. We must pray for them, and as opportunity presents itself, with all the love we possess, warn them about an eternity without God. We must then tell our friends. Pray for them an d look for opportunities to show them Gods love. What does all of this have to do with ma rriage, you ask? Its simple. We are to love our neighbors as ourselves (Matt. 5:43; 19:18, 19; 22:39; and Mark 12:31). If you have a neighbor closer than your husband your marriage is in serious trouble. If your family cant see the love of God in you, theyll never believe God could love them. They will think youre a hypocrite. It is a daunting task at times, but Philippians 4:13 reminds us that all things are possible through Christ. Aleta Kay can be reached at themarriagementor@yahoo.com Why should I pray?

I saw a m ountain of people and things Ive been concerned over. These people and things h ave taken my energies, time, focus, crea tive juices, etc., from me. Issues I can do n othing about, except worry. He showed m e the enemy of my soul telling me to b ow down and worship that mountain. And I could see where, in the past, I had done j ust that. Achoice needed to be made. We do have a choice. We can choose to w orship God (daily) or we can give our t ime, energies, etc. to that mountain and w orship it. We cant change people; God d oesnt expect us to. He gave each of us o ur own will, to do what we want, along w ith consequences, good and bad. Some t hings can be dealt with, some cant. So w e do what we can, then trust God for the r est. This Thanksgiving we can be grateful f or the blessings Hes given us, or focus on whats missing. This doesnt come easy or overnight. Weve practiced worrying all our lives, gotten accustomed to bowing to that mountain, so well have to retrain ourselves by focusing on Gods Word about the situation and purposely practice it one day at a time. This holiday season lets choose to walk this new concept out. No doubt, it will relieve stress, reduce sickness, end sleepless nights, abolish headaches, etc. But it will take lots of practice and time to begin seeing results, like anything else we change in our life. May this holiday season bring you and your family love, peace and joy as you destress by focusing on the One who has it all in control, instead of Mount Worry, which offers no solutions or answers.

Its glossy, moves quickly e nough and has a few enjoya ble personalities. Maybe the i ntermittent laugh. But afterw ard you realize it tried to c ram a whole lot of vapid s tuff into one compact time f rame, and despite all the h ard work that must have t aken place behind the s cenes, you havent really l earned anything and youre n o better for having w atched. The hardest-working of all h as got to be Rachel M cAdams as plucky, driven B ecky Fuller, a young prod ucer who has dreamed of w orking at the Today s how since she was 8 years o ld. Instead, Becky is asked t o help keep the fourth-place Daybreak alive. The netw orks head of news (Jeff G oldblum) isnt thrilled a bout hiring her, but no one e lse has stuck around for m ore than a year or so, so he d ecides to give her a shot. Or perhaps the sheer force o f her perkiness wears him d own. The fast-talking M cAdams is on overdrive t he whole time, a whirlwind o f messy hair, flying papers a nd random thoughts. Shes c onstantly checking her B lackBerry and always has o ne eye on the television in c ase news breaks. Singlem inded news junkies like B ecky absolutely exist in the r eal world per capita, t heyre not the most enjoya ble people to be around b ut McAdamsunflappable c uteness makes the character m ore tolerable than she m ight have been in another a ctresshands. But director Roger M ichells film, from a script b y The Devil Wears Prada w riter Aline Brosh M cKenna, falls into that a nnoying movie shorthand of s oftening her appearance and d emeanor once she falls for a fellow producer. And who c ould blame her? Hes p layed by Patrick Wilson. So a ll of a sudden, she finds t ime to style her hair in delic ate waves and acquires a s ofter, more feminine w ardrobe. Trouble is, the r elationship never feels plaus ible and the two barely h ave any chemistry. The o bligatory obstacle to their u ltimate happiness comes o ut of nowhere, and when t hey do get back together ( no big shocker there), its h ard to care. Its also hard to care about t he shows co-anchors b ecause theyre so twod imensional. Diane Keaton p lays the breezy Colleen P eck, a former Miss Arizona w hos been there forever and k nows her way around a f ashion segment. Harrison F ord plays the condescendi ng Mike Pomeroy, formerly t he networks globe-trotting m ain anchor whom Becky h as recruited through a cont ractual loophole to shake t hings up. (Shed fired the p revious male host, played w ith intriguing sleaziness a nd not nearly enough screen t ime by Ty Burrell of Modern Family.) Now, Mikes relegated to t he early-morning news t hats fluffy a word he f amously refuses to say b ecause its beneath him. B eckys task is to get him to do something beyond reading the few hard-news scripts at the top of the show. Acooking segment, maybe. Ford responds throughout with a monotone grumble. The few scenes in which Colleen and Mike allow their simmering offcamera bitterness toward each other to explode on live television make the movie briefly burst to life, but Morning Glory never makes the most of this tension. Michells film has its moments and it makes Manhattan look radiant, but it rarely finds the charm of his best (Venus) and bestknown work Notting Hill). It also fails to say anything insightful about the increasing encroachment of mindless entertainment into serious news; the phenomenon is a mere annoyance to old-school, curmudgeonly Mike. Morning Glory does get newsroom culture somewhat right, though, something so many other movies tend to get wrong. Youve got your morning meetings with their mix of chaos and crass humor, the misfits who often populate the production side. Theres a vaguely amusing running gag involving random guests seen in the background as they wait to go on set. But if heavyweights like Ford and Keaton cant save this show or this movie bit players dont stand a chance.Fair GameDespite taking place just a few years ago, this feels like a throwback to the political thrillers of the 1970s: globetrotting and intelligent, serious and substantial, deliberately paced yet filled with mounting suspense. It also boasts excellent performances from Naomi Watts and Sean Penn (no surprise there) as exposed CIAofficer Valerie Plame and her husband, former ambassador Joe Wilson all of which makes it so frustrating when Fair Game implodes at the end in a heap of righteous indignation. What happened to Plame and Wilson should make us angry and mistrustful. It should spur us into action, or at least inspire us to become more informed about what our political leaders are doing. But that much is evident from the first moments of director Doug Limans film, based on a script by brothers Jez and John-Henry Butterworth, which itself is based on Plame and Wilsons memoirs. The film makes its case clearly and efficiently: These people were betrayed by the very government they served. It doesnt need to repeat its points with heavyhanded preaching at the end. Still, until then, Fair Game moves well and keeps us riveted, even as it encompasses a great deal of complex material. PG-13 for some language. 106 minutes. Three stars out of four. Christy Lemire, AP Movie CriticFor Colored GirlsFor director Tyler Perry, who specializes in extreme melodrama, done quick and cheap, this is not much of a departure. Its based on the Obie Award-winning play, for colored girls who have considered suicide/ when the rainbow is enuf, by Ntozake Shange. The play, first performed in 1974, was a powerful flow of eloquent, full-blooded testifying by solitary black female characters a choreopoem, as Shange called it. Perry has gathered nine of its characters in an overlapping narrative centered on a Harlem apartment building. It plays very much like a typical Perry soap opera, with the exception that every now and then his characters spout a poetic soliloquy. The rich language of the ruminations is utterly disconnected from Perrys dialogue, and the film can only go down as a missed opportunity, a work of art that should have been trusted to more capable hands. With a hollow Janet Jackson as a fashion editor, an over-the-top Whoopi Goldberg as a religious zealot and more rounded performances from Tessa Thompson, Anika Noni Rose and Kimberly Elise. R for some disturbing violence including a rape, sexual content and language. 120 minutes. One and a half stars out of four. Jake Coyle, AP Entertainment WriterFour Lions If the Three Stooges tried to carry out their own Islamic jihad, the results could not be funnier than director Chris Morriswonderfully absurdist nightmare about terrorist wannabes. Riz Ahmed, Nigel Lindsay, Kayvan Novak, Adeel Akhtar and Arsher Ali play a group of phenomenally incompetent British Muslims aiming to carry out a round of suicide bombings. This is a movie that will have you gasping in horror even as you choke on your own guffaws. The stuff these guys say and do from the motions they make to confound possible camera surveillance to tweaking The Lion King into a jihadist parable makes this one of the funniest movies of the year. Its also one of the scariest and saddest. As these lions approach their goal of sacrificing their lives in acts of mass murder, we cringe and hope theyll turn aside from their plot, not only because of the innocent lives they aim to take, but because weve actually come to care about these idiots, the way we care about Curly, Larry and Moe. R for some language, including sexual references throughout. 97 minutes. Three and a half stars out of four. David Germain, AP Movie Writer Paramount Pictures Rachel McAdams stars as Becky Fuller and Harrison Ford stars as Mike Pomeroy in Morning Glory. DIVERSIONS Morning Glory a sunny, vapid hodgepodge DearAbby: Last year for Thanksgiving, I made a special effort to get the entire family together for the traditional meal. All 13 of us met at my mothers home and everyone was to bring a dish or two to share. One of my brothers has two college-age daughters. Both are vegan, and he insisted that all the dishes we brought be vegan. I did it, but I resented it because I felt that two out of 13 people should not decide the menu. If they wanted vegan dishes, they should bring something for themselves, while the rest of us brought what we wanted. My brother and nieces are now asking what were doing this year for Thanksgiving. Frankly, I dont want to go through that again. Am I wrong in thinking everyone should not bend over backward for the vegan meal? I dont mind some of the menu accommodating them, but I dont think the whole dinner should be altered. Turkey Eater in Texas DearTurkey Eater: Neither do I. And the response you should give your brother (and his daughters) is that youll be serving a traditional Thanksgiving dinner this year, so they can either bring something they will enjoy or make other plans. DearAbby: I read your column every day and find it interesting and useful. Many of the writers have the same emotions and problems as I do. Im always pleased to see that I am not too far off. I am a woman who married for the second time after 54 years of marriage. I was 71 and had been a widow for only one year. I had married my late husband at 16, and thought I could not live alone. Do you have any words of wisdom for someone such as myself? Older people are so set in their ways that blending is so very difficult. Having Trouble in Florida DearHaving Trouble: If you remarried only because you were afraid of living alone, then you did it for the wrong reason. There are worse things than living alone and one of them is being married to a person who is unwilling to compromise. The keys to a successful union are affection, communication respect and compromise. If both parties sincerely care about and respect each other, the union will be successful and lasting. DearAbby: My wife recently attended her 35th high school reunion alone Her high school sweethea rt was there, and they talked and exchanged e-mail addresses. As the night wore on, he started makin g advances and my wife rebuffed him somewhat rudely. Three days later, she e-mailed him an apolo gy and they started an eight-week exchange. I suspected something was wrong and checked her e-mails, where I discovered some pretty torri d messages and a dinner meeting being planned. When I confronted my wife, she denied everything until I gave her copies of the e-mails. She says they never met, but I say the intent was there. T o me, this is the same as a physical affair. She disagrees. Who is right? Deceived in Louisian a DearDeceived: You ar e. The only thing that prevented things from proceeding further was the fact that you intervened. And if your wife had been proud of what she was doing she wouldnt have lied to you.

LIVING 12B PAGE News-Sun Friday, November 12, 2010 Illustration courtesy of Getty Imag e FAMILYFEATURES W hether youre approaching age 65 or already enrolled in Medicare, the annual enrollment period for 2011s Medicare plans is an important time. When it comes to prescription coverage, seniors are seeing some of the biggest changes since the Medicare prescription benefit became available in 2006. The changes from having fewer options to premium increases to new discounts on brand-name drugs are enough to make anyones head spin. But, seniors who dont take the time to research their options and choose the plan that best suits their needs could leave hundreds of dollars in annual premium savings on the table. In fact, according to a recent study by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, only about 10 percent of participants change plans annually. Staying put and not investigating your options, however, could impact your overall costs. But how do you know if you have the best plan already or if you should consider a different plan? Luckily, there are a few tools that can help with the decision-making process. But first, lets start with the basics and what is changing this year.AccesstoprivateplansBeneficiaries have access to the Medicare drug benefit, known as Part D, through private plans approved by the federal government, either through stand-alone prescription drug plans (PDPs) or Medicare Advantage prescription drug plans (MAPDs). According to a Kaiser Family Foundation study in October 2010, of those who purchase Part D coverage, 38 percent, or 17.7 million beneficiaries, opt for stand-alone plans. Twenty-four percent, or 11.1 million, are enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans.Planoptions in2011While shopping around could save many seniors money, some beneficiaries have no option other than to find a new plan for next year. For 2011, the federal government directed insurers to eliminate duplicative Part D prescription drug plans and plans with low enrollment. That means a third fewer prescription drug plans will be offered nationwide next year compared to 2010, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation, and many of the remaining options may come with higher premiums. And with the federal government changing the way it reimburses health plans through Medicare Advantage, some insurers have quit offering their Medicare Advantage plans for next year. If your plan is no longer being offered, you may need to find alternative coverage.Enrollment periodsBeneficiaries have a six-week annual enrollment period from Nov. 15 to Dec. 31 to pick a Part D plan for 2011. For Medicare Advantage enrollees, it is especially important to pick the right plan during that period. Unlike previous years, people enrolled in Medicare Advantage plans can no longer switch to other Medicare Advantage plans during January, February and March. However, while this open enrollment period will not be available in 2011, after Jan. 1, enrollees can still leave their Advantage plan and go back to original Medicare. Doughnut holereliefHeres some good news: there is a new 50 percent discount on the formularys brand-name drugs for those who land in the programs coverage gap, also called the doughnut hole. In addition, plans will pay 7 percent of the cost for generic drugs in the gap. This applies to drugs that are on the plans formulary. If they arent on the formulary there may be no discount, so make sure you check.HowtomaximizeyourcostsavingsIn 2011, there are lots of changes on tap when it comes to Medicare Advantage and prescription drug plans. But open enrollment is a great time to review your coverage. These DOs and DONTs can help ensure you are maximizing your cost savings. HowtocompareplansEachplanhasdifferentfeaturesandeachpersonhasuniqueprescription needs so its important to find the plan that is best for you. Here are some things to keep in mind: Cost and coverage: Plans vary in the coverage offered and how much they cost. Consider the cost of premiums and whether it includes prescription coverage while in the gap. Pharmacy: Someplansrestrictwhereyoucanuseyourdrugplan. Determine whether your desired pharmacy is included in the plan you choose. For example, new this year are some plans whose monthly premiums fall well below the average price for Part D policies. However, these lower-cost plans come with some restrictions. The copays and coinsurance for prescription drugs are lowest when using preferred pharmacies; they increase for outside pharmacies. Formulary changes: Insurers may change drug formularies each year. Make sure you enroll in a Part D plan that covers your medications. Otherlimitations: In some cases, a plan may limit the circumstances under which a drug is covered. Certain medications may only be covered after prior authorization, after youve tried other drugs through a process called step therapy, or in certain doses and quantities. Comparing plans can be overwhelming, but there are easy-touse online tools such as www.PlanPrescriber.com that can take you through a four step process to narrow down your options and identify the most cost-effective plan. If you have a low income and struggle to pay for your prescription drugs, you may qualify for the Extra Help/Low-Income Subsidy (LIS) program. For more information, go to http://www.PlanPrescriber.com/medicare-part-d/ extra-help/ or https://secure.ssa.gov/apps6z/i1020/main.html.For additional resources on Medicare, go to Medicare.gov. Though it may seem overwhelming at first, taking the time to research your best option for Medicare prescription drug coverage could really pay off.DOcheck to ensure yourmedications are still covered. Check your prescription drug plan each year because insurers may change which medications are covered. You can enter your medications on websiteslikewww.PlanPrescriber.comto see which drugs are covered and compare the projected costs with other plans.DOpay attention to the drug limitations in yourplan. Even if your medication is on the formulary, a plan may limit the circumstances under which a drug is covered. They may only be covered after prior authorization, after youve tried other drugs through a process called step therapy, or in certain doses and quantities.DOconsiderall youroptions. Medicare supplemental plans, or Medigap, have their own six-month open enrollment period, beginning the day you turn 65 and are enrolled in Medicare Part B. The enrollment period for Medicare Advantage and stand-alone prescription drug plans is Nov. 15 to Dec. 31 2010.DONTgo on auto-pilot. Many plans change cost and drug coverage annually. What worked last year for you could cost you more money this year in terms of higher prescription drug costs and other out-ofpocket expenses.DONTbe afraid to ask forhelp from qualified professionals. You can get help through your State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP), PlanPrescriber, licensed health insurance agents who are certified to sell Medicare, family members or by calling 1-800-Medicare.DONTthink that stable premiums = stable coverage. Just because your premiums havent gone up doesnt mean that you are getting the same plan for the same price next year.
