By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Two unrelated home blazes kept firefighters busy Wednesday. The first call in the early afternoon was to a singlewide mobile home set in lot thick with trees on Oak Circle. Mutual aid was necessary to keep the fire restricted to the main building, and two out buildings did burn. The home itself was a complete loss. Water was brought in by two tanker trucks, however, and volunteer fighters from Stations 18 and 19 in DeSoto City, with assistance from West Sebring volunteers and the Sebring Fire Department, successfully knocked down the flames and put the fire out. County emergency management personnel were also on scene. Acrime scene investigation vehicle w as observed on site, as was a K-9 truck. By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK The Highlands County Sheriff's Office confirmed just before noon on Thursday that three people were killed in the crash of a small plane east of Avon Park Wednesday night. Although the civilian aircraft was participating in military drills at the Avon Park Air Force Bombing Range, no military personnel were reported to be on the plane, which crashed in a pasture, according to the Sheriff's Office. News video showed debris scattered over a wide area. The tail of the aircraft was partially submerged in a small pond, and was the only recognizable piece of wreckage. "The small-fixed wing civilian aircraft was providing support to a Special Operations Command training exercise. There was no armament on the aircraft or military personnel. More information will be provided as it becomes available," a statement from the 6th Air Mobility Wing based out of MacDill Air Force Base issued Thursday said. U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Paul Villagran stated the plane was a civilian aircraft contracted by the military for a routine training mission at the Bombing Range.

Now there is some tension between the town council and its own recreation board. In the past, the county reimbursed the town half of the annual costs for running the active parks. But in the fiscal year 2009-2010, the commissioners voted to reimburse a smaller percentage. They put aside funding for recreation in general, but there is disagreement over how the money is to be divided, so nothing has been decided. In the meantime, because Lake Placid has to pay all costs up front and is already working with greatly reduced revenues, town council member Steve Bastardi has called the situation a train wreck" and proposed closing the parks altogether. Bastardi was particularly upset when he learned recreation director John Komaso had included $22,500 in his budget as income from user fees when no user fees were in place. After deciding to give the new county commission members time to settle into their seats and th en approach them to work out a solutio n, the council asked Komaso to create a user fee structure. The council then asked the recr eation committee to come up with a plan to raise the $22,500.

This is a remarkable achievement for the underprivileged children in fourth through seventh grades who have never played a musical instrument. The 12-week Percussion Education for Children Program was presented by the Primal Connection and funded in large part by Heartland for Children. In the program, the children learned how to play a variety of percussion instruments, music basics, five rhythms and the teamwork required to play ensemble. In the process, they learned two African, one Brazilian, and one Primal Connection rhythm. In addition the "APSquad" created their own rhythm and arranged it for performance. Primal Connection instructors Fred Leavitt and Denise Miriani worked with the 17 eager students to bring them together physically and spiritually to create an intricate weave of percussion music. The children are ready willing and able to take the stage and rock the house. The public is invited to enjoy the concert free of charge. For more information contact Leavitt at 402-8238 or email fred@primalconnection.org.

Call 385-6155 News-Sun photo by SAMANTHAGHOLAR Cracker Trail Elementary second graders visited the Recycling Center on Skipper Road on Thursday morning. Students learned how to categorize and properly dispose of all materials and techniques that help keep recycling simple. By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Several groups of second grade students visited the Recycling Center throughout the week learning all about the importance of recycling in the community. On Thursday, second graders from Cracker Trail Elementary visited and toured the center. The students were lead by recycling program manager Christy Reed. Reed has worked for years as an advocate for the Keep Highlands County Beautiful Program. The students walked through the Skipper Road recycling center and learned the many aspects of recycling. "They learned at each station how to determine what materials are good and can be recycled and what is considered contaminated," said Reed. Contaminated goods are things that the center can not recycle and usually wind up in the Highlands County landfill. "Things like shrubbery guards that have been in gardens; things like that we can't do anything with. It's a lot of work filtering through all the materials we get dropped off here," Reed said. Large piles of plastic bottles must be sorted through by hand to ensure each item is recyclable and not contaminated. As the employees at the center sorted through the enormous pile water and soda bottles and milk jugs, the students watched as the conveyor demonstrated how the bottles go through the recycling process. Students learned about the materials that the center takes: glass, plastic, card board, aluminum, steel cans and mixed papers. Students also learned where the majority of the mixed paper brought to the center comes from. "Junk mail!" they all shouted. Reed hopes that the visit to the center will enable students with the information they need to help out at home with recycling and help to better the community. "When they get home now they will know that this can be recycled and that can't be. It is a good way for them to teach not only themselves but show their families ways to take care of garbage properly," Reed said.

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Unemployment compensation taxes are set to nearly triple next year for almost half of Florida's employers who pay the minimum rate, but they won't change for those paying the maximum, state revenue officials said Wednesday. Ayear ago, an even bigger unemployment tax increase had been announced for 2010. It drew howls of protest from the business community, and lawmakers rolled it back the first chance they had. That forced the state, though, to borrow more federal money to pay compensation owed to jobless workers. Lawmakers had hoped the economy would improve and the unemployment rate would drop so some of the compensation tax receipts could be diverted to begin paying off the loans. The jobless rate instead has increased, hitting 11.9 percent in October 0.7 point higher than the same month last year. The state has borrowed $1.74 billion so far and hasn't been able to repay any of it. "We're scratching our heads about it now," said Rick McAlister, president of the Florida Retail Federation. "We're not in a whole lot better shape than we were last year." With more than a million Floridia ns still out of work, the tax increase is due to increase under an automat ic trigger in state law. It's designed to keep pace with t he growing demand for benefits and a higher number of employers payin g the maximum rate. Employers'taxes are individual ly set.

Acharter outlines not only h ow elections will be held a nd what officers the city w ill have, but it also lays out t he powers and limitations t hat city officials will have. It a lso dictates what form the l ocal government will take, a nd who can be involved in t he decision process. No one would disagree that t he current Avon Park docum ent is pieced together and s omewhat outdated, having b een drafted in the 1960s or 70s. Some of the items in the c harter, such as the requirement for a civil service board, are no longer needed, and should be removed. Other items, such as making the police a permanent department under the charter, possibly needs to be added. But, while we agree that an update needs to happen, we are concerned about how that update will occur. Changing a city charter should be a community effort and the citizens should agree to some extent that the changes made are what they want. So far, the council has given very little direction on how that should occur, other than to direct the city attorney for a new draft. And those citizens who will have to vote on the changes have not been involved in the first redraft, and that is kind of putting the cart before the horse, so to speak. The city attorney presented a redraft compiled of the common items from other cities over a week ago, and city staff has already held discussions on what changes they would like to see. Avon Park residents are now beginning to ask "When do the citizens of Avon Park get involved with a charter change?" and "Who is included, and what is the process for making suggestions and changes to the new charter?" So far, those questions have not been answered. The News-Sun would suggest that like a visioning plan, a charter redraft should be a part of a town-hall style of meetings. More than one gathering should be required, and those meetings should be held in several locations throughout the city in order to invite neighborhood type input. All of the input, data and information gathered should be handed to a committee of citizens and city staff to be drafted into the new charter, which then should be on review and available for any citizen to look over for at least 60 days. After that, city staff and the city attorney should review the document, making whatever changes are necessary to hold with state and federal law, if any. That's when the process of official public hearings followed by a council vote to put the changes out for referendum should occur. Changing a city charter is supposed to be a communi ty affair, one that fully engag es the public. There is still tim e to make that happen, and it is our hope that Avon Park 's council will move in th at direction. Otherwise the referendu m might turn into another n oshow vote.

If Sen. Mitch McConnell's pledge to get behind the movement to ban the cynical practice of earmark spending is any indication that Republicans heard the message voters sent them in the recent Congressional elections, the GOPis off to a good start. It's about time. Over the years members of Congress have acquired a lot of bad habits and the use of so-called earmarks the Senate tacking on spending measures to bills that have already passed the House are among the worst. McConnell's choosing to target that practice suggests that congressional Republicans may have received the voters'message that they will no longer tolerate the kind of shoddy methods members of Congress sometimes use to feather their own legislative nests. It's the old idea of one hand washing the other. In the case of ear marks, both hands are dirty. While the financial impact of using earmarks is comparatively small, the effect of members of Congress using them has proven to be out of proportion to the amount of government spending involved. If a member of Congress wants his colleagues'backing for his own pet projects he can swap his vote for whatever measures they favor and then tack them on to bills they pass. That's earmarking. Get rid of the practice of earmarking and it will then be a case of legislation standing on its own without the bribes involved in ear marking saying to your colleagues, "You vote for my bill and I'll support yours no matter how bad it might be." House Republicans have already promised to stop putting earmarks on bills they pass and send on to the Senate, and Sen. McConnell's pledge to follow suit suggests that earmarks hopefully may be a thing of the past. Moreover, House Speakerto-be John Boehner, R-Ohio, has said the GOPmajority will stick to McConnell's pledge in the next Congress due to take power in January. Democrats, however, have not followed McConnell's lead. They have defende d earmarks, which they view as a key method of slipping federal funding to their states to pay for their pet projects. Observers point to the Transportation bill now pending before Congress as one example of the effect on legislation of ending earmarks. Democrats fe ar that ending the earmarking process could kill many of their own local pet projects by starving them of federal funds one method they u se to funnel taxpayers'money to their states. In July, the House passed a Transportation bill with a whopping $70 billion price tag. It was loaded down wit h no less than 560 earmarks, many of which funded local transportation or infrastructure projects. The Senate ha s not followed suit, and indica tions are that action on the measure may be stalled. In taking his stand on ear marks, Sen. McConnell defended his past support of earmarking, telling colleagues, "Make no mistake, I know the good that has com e from the projects I have helped support throughout my state. I don't apologize for them." He then added, "But there is simply no doubt that the abuse of this practice has caused Americans to view it as a symbol of the waste an d the out-of-control spending that every Republican in Washington is determined to fight. And unless people lik e me show the American people that we're willing to follow through on small or eve n symbolic things, we risk los ing them on our broader efforts to cut spending and rein in government." Sen. McConnell's conver sion to anti-earmark champi on could spell an end to the practice. Good for you, Mitch. Han g in there.

Park fee a must to eat at restaurant E ditor: My husband and I stayed in Sebring t his past week and just love your comm unity. We love the small town feel, a nd especially appreciate the natural b eauty of this area of Florida. We a lways visit Highlands Hammock when w e are in town (we live in Englewood, a bout two hours drive from here) and t his trip was no exception. It is so nice to be able to experience F lorida as it once was, without all of t he development and commercializat ion. I wonder how many local people are a ware of a new policy that requires p aid admission if you want to eat at the H ammock Restaurant inside the park? A pparently Highlands Hammock is u nder new management, and this is a n ew policy that has threatened to bankr upt the owner. Currently, if you want to stop by for a wild orange ice cream or go to the f ish fry on Friday nights, you must s hell out for the park admission. It has a lways been a highlight of our visits to e nd our time in the park at the snack s hop where else in Florida can you g et a slice of wild orange pie? If you agree that this policy is unfair t o your local community (with the e conomy the way it is, who's going to s pend $6 if all you want to do is buy an i ce cream cone?), write a letter or make a call. I for one will be very sad if the n ext time I visit, this local landmark is g one. Don't let it happen. Dawn Carpenter Port CharlotteGovernment always runs in the red E ditor: The recent article on the bankruptcy o f the U.S. Postasl Service and the cutb ack of service is just another example o f how the government runs its business. All the politicians, registered lobbyists, and countless other government entities know how to reduce their expenses by passing them on to the general public. Every day the mail is delivered, my box is loaded with junk mail that must be handled by the postal employees at a greatly reduced rate. Why should lobbyists and politicians get mail service at greatly reduced rates while the post office is going bankrupt and threatening to cut service to the public for whom the Postal Service was intended. Most of us now use "e-mail" or find other means of communication to get around the high cost of mailing a letter. Do you remember when the cost of mailing a letter was a 3-cent stamp? I do. Just another example of how the government runs its business. In the red. Lew Predmore SebringOpening septic tank stops germinationEditor: I don't know who came up with the bright idea to have septic tanks pumped at least once every five years to protect the water. But I think if this is a problem, we need to think about putting diapers on all the cows. As the amount of cows in Florida is second only to Texas. And they crap on the ground and this goes into the ground and contaminates 100 percent. Water coming out of a septic tank is 90 percent pure. I don't want to drink water that is 10 percent crap. But sand is the best filter there is, by the time it reaches the water supply, it will be 100 percent pure. When you open a septic tank you stop the germination. So when you close the tank you must add something to re-start the germination. Chuck Edwards Avon Park Septic Tank Law not what was proposedEditor: To begin with a bill sb550 was signed into law in June of this year. The law takes effect Jan. 1, 2011. Recently the effective date was moved to July 2011. What sb550 says is that anyone in the state who has a septic tank system, i.e. tank and/or drain field, must have it pumped and inspected every five years. Pumped means anywhere from $200 to $500 every five years. If the inspection reveals that you need to have your system replaced in part or in whole, cost could range between $5,000 to $15,000 and if you do not begin work in the prescribed time frame you can be accessed a $500 a day fine until the work is begun/completed. The inspection will be done by a septic tank company. I have it on good authority that this was not legislators intention when the law was passed. Changes were made to the bill (to expand coverage to the entire state of Florida) that everyone was not aware of at the time of the vote. This means that repeal is likely, but I would suggest that sb550 should be repealed without any further action. If it should not have been acted on in the first place then we should not begin to look at making compromises as some have suggested, i.e. move the pump/inspection date to 10 years. It should not have been approved in the first place. Repeal and forget sb550. We are trying to solve problems we don't have to solve except in the minds of a few people. Isn't life complicated enough without this intrusion in the lives of so many (estimates are 40 percent or more of the population of Florida). Updates to follow until the repeal process is complete.

She was selected to run the Navy's Correctional Custody Unit in Sicily, out of 200 of her peers. The unit is a rehabilitation program geared toward taking problem sailors, who are facing separation from the military, and returning them to their commands, more motivated and focused to finish their military obligations. Carter transferred in 2008 to Naval Station Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, as chief master at arms and the command career counselor for the Naval Station. She is attending Columbia College of Missouri online working toward her associate's degree in general studies, and wants to pursue a bachelor's degree in business administration with Columbia College.

The news is just a click away!www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN By JENNIFER PELTZ Associated PressNEWYORK Alawyer was sentenced T hursday to six months in jail after being c onvicted of an ultramodern crime that was a ll about antiquity: using online aliases to h arass people in an academic debate about t he Dead Sea Scrolls. Raphael Golb was sentenced on identity t heft and other charges in a rare criminal c ase centered on Internet impersonation a nd a very rare trial that aired a bitter schola rly debate over which ancient Jews created t he scrolls. Prosecutors said Golb crossed the line b etween discourse and crime by using fake e -mail accounts and writing blog posts u nder assumed names to discredit detractors o f his father, a scholar. Golb said the writi ngs amounted to pointed parody and acad emic whistle-blowing that he felt were p rotected by free-speech rights. "I'm sorry for all the wounding of feeli ngs that my e-mail antics have caused," he t old a court Thursday. "Before this case, I d id not know that satirical hoaxes of the s ort were treated as crimes in the United S tates of America." But state Supreme Court Justice Carol B erkman said his conviction was about a ctions, not ideas. "It's not his words, but his conduct," she s aid before sentencing him. "It is still a c rime to imitate people in the manner that ( Golb) did. ... The victims felt invaded and h urt by this." The gaunt, 50-year-old Golb was led off i n handcuffs to start serving his sentence. H is lawyers planned to ask an appellate c ourt later Thursday to grant him bail while he appeals. Golb's September trial often felt like a lecture series, touching on topics ranging from Judaic studies to Enlightenment philosophy. Found in caves in Israel beginning in the 1940s, the scrolls contain the earliest known versions of portions of the Hebrew Bible. They have provided important insight into the history of Judaism and the beginnings of Christianity. Some scholars, including New York University Judaic studies chairman Lawrence Schiffman, say the texts were assembled by a sect known as the Essenes. Others including Norman Golb, a University of Chicago historian and Golb's father believe the writings were the work of a range of Jewish groups and communities. Schiffman went to authorities after some of his students and colleagues received emails from an address that used his name. The e-mails appeared to have him admitting that he plagiarized Norman Golb's work and asking the recipients to keep quiet about it. Schiffman denies copying the historian's work. Raphael Golb, a literature scholar and real estate lawyer with a Harvard Ph.D. and an NYU law degree, acknowledged during his trial that he wrote the messages. But he said he never intended for anyone to believe Schiffman actually sent them and portrayed them as "satire, irony, parody." Manhattan assistant district attorney John Bandler said Thursday that Golb's activities weren't commentary, but "thousands of hours of malicious harassment and impersonation."

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE The Florida Supreme Court has approved financing for the state's purchase of 46,200 acres from U.S. Sugar Corp. for Everglades restoration. The justices Thursday ruled that the South Florida Water Management District can use a form of bond financing known as certificates of participation. They rejected argumen ts by the Miccosukee Tribe of Indians that the land de al will not serve a public pu rpose. The financing was orig inally proposed for 73,00 0 acres but the district sin ce then has bought 26,80 0 acres with cash. The high court, thoug h, ruled an option to buy add itional land in the futu re does not serve a public pu rpose and, therefore, certi ficates of participation ca nnot be used to for tho se expenses.

By BRENDAN FARRINGTON Associated PressTALLAHASSEE The t ime to hesitate is through, no t ime to wallow in the mire: F lorida's outgoing governor w ants to posthumously pard on rock 'n'roll wild man Jim M orrison, the lead singer of T he Doors who was famously c onvicted of exposing himself a t an anarchic 1969 concert in M iami. Gov. Charlie Crist, a 54y ear-old baby boomer and M orrison fan whose favorite D oors song is "Light My F ire," said the evidence that M orrison unzipped his pants w as flimsy and prosecutors w ere trying to make an examp le of the singer, whose ons tage excesses and appetite f or sex and drugs were lege ndary. "There's some troubling a spects to it as to whether t here was a valid conviction. T he more I learn about it, the m ore I'm convinced a wrong m ay have been done here. My h eart just bleeds for his legacy a nd his family," said Crist, w ho leaves office in January a nd figures "it's sort of now o r never." Exactly what happened that n ight at the Dinner Key A uditorium is one of rock 'n' r oll history's enduring myst eries. Morrison clearly teased t he crowd and went into an o bscenity-laced rant. "He was baiting the audie nce, telling them., 'I'm going t o do it, I'm going to show it t o you. That's what you've c ome for isn't it?"'Doors k eyboardist Ray Manzarek t old The Associated Press. The girls were screaming Yes! Yes!'Guys were saying, No! Don't do it!"' Manzarek said Morrison p ut a shirt in front of his c rotch and wiggled his hand b ehind it. He briefly pulled t he shirt away and said, "I just s howed you. Did you see it?" "And of course nobody saw i t," Manzarek said. He and g uitarist Robby Krieger said M orrison had recently seen a s tage group called The Living T heater, which was performi ng plays in which actors disr obed. The concert was his f irst and only attempt to do s omething similar, but he didn 't follow through with e xposing himself, they said. "I wouldn't put it past him. I'm sure he would have done it if he had been a little drunker or if (manager) Bill Siddons hadn't been holding his arms around his waist and preventing him from doing so after Ray said, 'Don't let him do it!"'Krieger said. "Really, as far as the pardoning thing, I don't think Jim would care one way or another, but his family would, so that to me is the most important thing." Morrison was found guilty in 1970 of indecent exposure and public profanity and was fined $500 and sentenced to six months in jail. But he never did the time. He was appealing his conviction when he was found dead in a Paris bathtub in 1971 at age 27. The governor said he plans to ask Florida Cabinet members to support a pardon the next time they meet as the Clemency Board. Crist needs at least two of the three Cabinet members to vote with him. m ents conduct drills monthly t o insure that they know what t o do in hazardous situations, A ndrews said. "We drill monthly, but this r eally the first time we have d one one without letting anyo ne know it was an actual d rill," Andrews said. The simulated gas for the d rill was Stargon, a mixture o f argon, nitrogen and carbon d ioxide, which is used in w elding of stainless steel. A"victim" was placed s trategically so that the first r esponders could identify h im and conduct what A ndrews called a "snatcha nd-go" where suited fire f ighters with breathing appar atus retrieve the victim and g et them to a safe distance. "They did everything by t he book, it was well execute d," Andrews said. Interim Director of Emergency Management Scott Canaday agreed with Andrews'assessment. "The good thing was that no one knew this was a drill, and the situation looks authentic," said Canaday. "We did well. The response time was good, and all the protocols were followed by the book. We did perfect and performed as we were trained," Canaday added. www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, November 19, 2010Page 7A LIMITED SPACE … CALLTODAY! 5 DAYS a week$ 30 Get In Shape Learn Self Defense Improve Self Esteem Make Better Grades MARTIAL ARTS AMERICA471-2467 Best After School Program in SebringFREEPICKUP from: Kindergarten Learning Center, Cracker Trail, Sun-N-Lakes, Woodlawn, Fred Wild, Memorial, Hill Gustat, Sebring Middle/High Located on Kenilworth Sebring*Some Restrictions Apply Life Care, Not Day Care for the aircraft near Old Bombing Range Road off of County Road 64 east of Avon Park, before finding the debris field at approximately 1:45 a.m. Reports identified the plane as a twin-engine Cessna 337 with one propeller in the front, and one in the rear.

Because the largest e xpense by far is the electric b ill, everyone agreed the best a pproach is to conserve. N ight games could be r escheduled for the day, for e xample. Most agreed that as m uch as 20 to 25 percent c ould be saved on the electric b ill. There was a willingness to p rovide sweat equity by d oing budgeted chores, the m oney could be shifted to a nother line. But the subject of fees trigg ered the most discussion, w ith concerns over the ability t o pay and general fairness. One sore spot for organi zed team members is having to help pay for the parks, while unorganized teams simply arrive and pay nothing for the benefits. There were concerns about teams which only play day games having to pay a portion of the light bill or smaller teams with fewer players paying the same amount as a larger club. No one on the committee was happy about having to tackle this contentious a problem. They were particularly upset at having to come up with more than $20,000 on such short notice. "We've been blindsided," said committee member Todd Moore. "Up to now we've never been involved with money," said committee chairman Jon Million. The committee was also upset it did not have more information. "It's hard to budget without having numbers," committee member Laura Tea said. The committee informally agreed to begin an electrical conservation program, lobby hard for recreation funding from the county including turning out people at county commission meetings and in the long run supporting a non ad valorem countywide recreation assessment, to be balanced with a equal reduction in the county ad valorem tax. By "making a decision to not make a decision," as Million said, the committee effectively threw the issue back to the town council. Continued from page 1A Parks funding still undecided in LP News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY Lake Placid recreation committee member Andy Russell makes a point as chairman Jon Million listens, during the park funding debate Wednesday night at Town Hall. By CHRISTINE ARMARIO Associated PressMIAMI Anational educ ation assessment released T hursday shows that high s chool seniors have made s ome improvement in readi ng, but remain below the a chievement levels reached n early two decades ago. The National Assessment o f Educational Progress, r eferred to at the Nation's R eport Card, tested 52,000 s tudents in reading and 4 9,000 in math across 1,670 s chool districts in 2009. Students scored an average o f 288 out of 500 points in r eading comprehension, two p oints above the 2005 score b ut still below the 1992 avera ge of 292. Thirty-eight perc ent of 12th grade students w ere classified as at or above t he "proficient" level, while 7 4 percent were considered at o r above "basic." "Today's report suggests t hat high school seniors' a chievement in reading and m ath isn't rising fast enough to prepare them to succeed in college and careers," U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan said. Cornelia S. Orr, executive director of the National Assessment Governing Board, which oversees development tests, said she was encouraged by the fact reading scores had gone up in recent years. "And we'd like it to get back up to the level it once was," she said. The trouble advancing student reading skills extends across grade levels. Reading scores for fourth and eighth grade students in 2009 were only four points higher than in 1992. The No Child Left Behind law championed by President George W. Bush set a goal for every student to read and do math at their grade level by 2014, but the national assessment scores indicate students are still trailing significantly behind. In 2009, 33 percent of fourth grade and 32 percent of eighth grade students scored at the proficient level in reading. In a statement, Duncan noted that President Barack Obama set a goal for the United States to have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world by the end of the decade, and that in a survey that accompanied the reading and math test, 86 percent of seniors said they expect to graduate college. "They'll only succeed if we challenge and support them to raise their academic performance and offer them the financial support they need to pay for college," Duncan said.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK Two of the Highlands County teams were at less than full strength coming into the Bill Jarrett Tip-Off Classic Tournament at Avon Park Tuesday night, as Sebring and Lake Placid are either without their football playing contingent, or trying to work them in. The Red Devils, meanwhile, looked in near midseason form and ready to make a run at their Final Four appearance of last season win an easy win over Clewiston in Tuesday's nightcap. "It's what I expected," said Avon Park head coach Luther Clemons about the 75-41 win over the Tigers. "We worked well, and we hit our shots. I am also impressed with the second unit, they really stepped up." Swingman Reggie Baker left the game early with a tweaked ankle, and Clemons said that there was no need to push him this early in the season. "Reggie, Alonzo (Robertson), Avierre (Conner) and TK (Miller) are the core that returned this year, and they can make it happen," Clemons said. Robertson poured in 21 points, Baker 18 and Conner picked-up 14 in less than half of a game's worth of play.Sebring shorthandedThe Blue Streaks still have five players unavailable due to Sebring's appearance in the Rotary Bowl Thursday night, leaving him with a patchwork lineup with a game group of freshman and sophomores having to log major minutes. And while the 57-26 loss to a powerful North Port squad wasn't necessarily fun to watch, head coach Princeton Harris saw the positives and had a wry smile as he looked ahead. "It's always good to get that first one out of the way and I was happy with how our younger kids stepped up," he said. "I'll be happier Monday when we get our football players back. "They're all familiar with the system and we had them for a couple walk-throughs this week and it looked really good," Harris continued. "We're going to get after it defensively and play an up tempo game. My teams are always going to run and I definitely see potential wh en we have everyone back."Lake Placid a work in progressThe Green Dragons h ad the luxury of having the ir football players back in t he fold, albeit for little mo re than one practice, headin g into Tuesday's match-up wi th a fast and strong Haines Ci ty Hornets squad. "These are just practi ce games which will help us g et into shape," head coa ch David Veley said. "Playing a larger, more athletic grou p like Haines City will he lp emphasize to my kids wh at urgency we need to come o ut and play with every night." By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comThe Lady Green Dragons o f the pitch kept their early s eason prowess rolling with a n 8-0 win over Fort Meade T uesday night. Scoring virtually at will a gainst the Lady Miners, L ake Placid ended this one e arly on the mercy rule to m ove to 4-0 on the season a nd 1-0 in district play. As a show of their domin ance, with 24 goals on the s eason, the Lady Dragons a re averaging six goals per g ame, and have yet to be s cored upon. The Lake Placid boys, w hile not in as dominating f ashion, also brought home a win by topping Fort Meade 3-2 Tuesday night. The win brings the Dragons record to 2-1 h eading into Thursday's dist rict match-up with McKeel A cademy at Roger S carborough Memorial S tadium. Things didn't go quite so w ell for the Lake Placid g irls basketball team in their o pening week as they split t wo games. They fell to McKeel 522 8 Tuesday, but came up w ith a big, 46-28 win over C lewiston at home on M onday. The Lady Dragons of the h ardwood were on the road a t Mulberry Thursday night. Sebring girls soccer head c oach Paul Brown's proclom ation that his team was on a roll after scoring their first g oal in last Thursday's loss, s eemed to be on the mark as h is Lady Blue Streaks took a 4 -0 win atr Mulberry M onday nigh to get their first win of the season a win they tried to build on Thursday night at Ridge. The Avon Park soccer programs continued their struggles as both the boys and the girls squads fell Tuesday to Mulberry and had them still looking for their first wins of the young season. The Devils were at Tenoroc Thursday in search of that initial victory while the girls hosted the Lady Titans.

Sports Talk' goes Cross Country By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLast weekends'State Swiming and Diving Championships saw Highlands County's representatives coming up a bit short but standing proud for their effort and achievements. Against stacked fields and even tougher judges, Lake Placid's Edwin Velazquez and Sebring's Fred Cooper finished just out of scoring spots in their respective onemeter dive competitions. Velazquez totaled 232.45 points in the Class 1Aevent Thursday, finishing in 17th place, one spot out of making the top 16 scoring slots, behind Frostproof's Caleb Hardy. Cooper's total of 206.15 had him finish just two spots back, at 18th, in the Class 2A event Friday. Teammate Brian Miller who qualified in the 100 Meter Breaststroke, came into Friday's prelims with a seed time of 1:05.08 and in fine fashion lowered it with a 1:03.70 mark in the race. But even that great effo rt left him a scant .29 secon ds out of advancing to the fina ls of the event. Perhaps not the finish es hoped for, but to ha ve reached that level, to ha ve met up with the best that t he state had to offer and fin d themselves right in the m ix of it, Velazquez, Cooper an d Miller did themselves proud.

Although work is still u nder way, in early N ovember, experts appointed b y the Florida Fish and W ildlife Conservation C ommission (FWC) began to r eview the information and d ata received on 61 state-liste d species against Florida's l isting criteria. The groups found that seve ral species may no longer be a t risk of extinction and may n ot need to be listed. "We hope these prelimin ary findings will result in t he discovery that our conserv ation measures in the past d ecade have had measurable, b eneficial impacts on w ildlife in Florida," said Dr. E lsa Haubold, who heads up t he FWC's threateneds pecies listing process team. Ten currently listed mamm als have undergone the prel iminary status reviews, and i nitial results indicate that f ive species do not meet listi ng criteria. These species include the F lorida black bear, chipm unk, Florida mouse, H omosassa shrew and Sherman's fox squirrel. Four of 21 currently statelisted birds also do not meet the criteria: limpkin, brown pelican, snowy egret and white ibis. The biological status review groups found that the following bird and mammal species met at least one of the listing criteria: American oystercatcher, least tern, little blue heron, reddish egret, roseate spoonbill, tricolored heron, osprey, southeastern American kestrel, white-crowned pigeon, Florida sandhill crane, Marian's marsh wren, Scott's seaside sparrow, Wakulla seaside sparrow, Worthington's marsh wren, black skimmer, snowy plover, burrowing owl, Everglades mink, Florida bonneted bat, Sanibel Island rice rat, Sherman's short-tailed shrew and Big Cypress fox squirrel. Haubold cautions this is only the first step in the careful process of studying the status of these species. After all 61 species receive the scrutiny of the biological status review teams, composed of recognized experts and led by an FWC staff member, the reports will be sent for review to national and international experts for each wildlife species. However, before the Commission removes any species from the list, a management plan will have to be written and approved. One goal of the management plans is to ensure the species never reaches a high risk of extinction again, which would result in the need to re-list the species. The reviews in Florida are still under way for many of the remaining 61 species, and the preliminary findings will be available sometime in early December. The Commission could consider staff recommendations as early as April. "This is a huge effort on the part of the teams, and the process is working very well," Haubold said. "But this does not mean our work is done far from it. We still have lots to do to ensure no species ever goes extinct in Florida." One of the species reviewed was the Florida black bear, which is currently listed as threatened in Florida. The biological review group found black bear numbers have increased and the population is not in decline. However, before any change in status is made, several steps must be completed, including developing a management plan that ensures the species will continue to thrive in the future.

For t he third time in four years, G reg Oden's knees have b etrayed him. The Portland Trail Blazers h astily called a press confere nce Wednesday night to a nnounce that Oden, the No. 1 pick in the 2007 draft, will m iss the season after he has m icrofracture surgery on his l eft knee. Oden's rookie year was p ostponed because of similar s urgery on his right knee, and l ast season he broke his left k neecap early in December a nd again required surgery. He was still rehabbing w hen the latest problem was d iscovered. "As you can expect, this y oung man is devastated a bout not having the opportun ity to play this season, being s o close to getting back on t he floor and just all of a sudd en, this situation comes up a nd it's like, here we go again f or him," Portland coach N ate McMillan said. Oden's latest surgery is s cheduled for Friday in Vail, C olo. The microfracture proced ure will repair damaged cart ilage that is not related to the k neecap injury, the team said. Blazers trainer Jay Jensen s aid the latest problem with O den's knee became appare nt about two weeks ago w hen he experienced some p ain and fluid in the joint. Soon thereafter, an MRI r evealed the damage. "We sat there and it was l ike we'd been kicked in the s tomach," Jensen said, choki ng up. "It felt like hearing s omeone close to us had d ied." The 22-year-old Oden has o ften has been compared to f ormer Portland center Sam B owie, whom the Blazers f amously selected in front of M ichael Jordan in the 1984 d raft. The Blazers picked Oden i nstead of Kevin Durant, who w ent to the Oklahoma City f ranchise and has blossomed i nto one of the NBA's best players. Another Portland big man, Bill Walton, was selected by the Blazers with the No. 1 pick in the 1974 draft, but he was dogged by a broken nose, foot, wrist and leg over his first two seasons before helping the team to the NBA championship in 1977. Oden has seemingly been cursed since shortly before his rookie season, when trouble in his right knee prompted surgery the first time. He showed promise the next season when he played in 61 games, averaging 8.9 points and seven rebounds. But he really began to blossom last season when he became a starter and was averaging 11.7 points, 8.8 rebounds and 2.4 blocks in that role. Then he was hurt in a game against Houston, crashing to the floor with his kneecap visibly contorted. Oden had just started easing into practices when the latest knee issue was discovered. He has played in only 82 games during his NBA career, missing 176. Jensen said it was unclear what caused the latest damage. The Blazers announced last month they would not offer Oden a contract extension. He was the first No. 1 pick since Kwame Brown not to get one at the end of his rookie contract. Oden will be a restricted free agent next summer and Portland will be able to match any offers for him. Portland's problems at center are not limited to Oden. For the past several years the Blazers have relied on veteran Joel Przybilla, but he also was injured last December and required knee surgery. The Blazers have since started veteran forward Marcus Camby in the middle. At the start of this season, Jeff Pendergraph, who was backing up Camby, injured his knee and required seasonending surgery. The Blazers signed sixyear veteran Fabricio Oberto, but he retired from the NBA just five games into the season because of a preexisting heart condition. The good news for the Blazers is that Przybilla already has returned to practice and has said he expects to be back by Thanksgiving.

Highlands Regional Wound C enter, a National Healing W ound Center, offers diabeti cs these holiday tips for e njoying the season without p utting one's health at risk: Keep to your blood gluc ose monitoring schedule and monitor more frequently if you find you are eating more often or at different times of the day. American Diabetes Association guidelines include several sweeteners that can be used in holiday baking including table sugar, honey, molasses and brown sugar. Tinker with favorite recipes to reduce the amounts of sugar required or make other substitutions such as low fat or non-fat milk for whole milk. When dining out with friends and family, try to eat at your normal meal time. If the reservation is for later, eat a fruit or starch serving from the meal you are delaying at the normal time. Whenever possible, choose to bring a dish to the party rather than a hostess gift or a bottle of wine. That way you can be sure of at least one healthy item. Guidelines suggest that men can consume two drinks a day and women one drink as long as your diabetes is under control, you know how alcohol affects you and your health provider agrees that your health condition will not be made worse by moderate alcohol use. Focus on activities other than food. Enjoy the season with friends and family at a holiday-themed movie or cultural event. The Internet and libraries offer countless suggestions for holiday treats developed for people with diabetes. Look to see if there is a recipe that is equivalent to one of your family's traditional holiday meals or start a new tradition of healthier eating. Don't feel deprived during the holidays. You may need to exercise more, increase your insulin or eat less of other foods but you can enjoy the holidays to the fullest.

Is i t OK to ask the pharmacist for help? I 've tried at times, but they are always b usy and I have to wait. P.R. New York Answer: Absolutely! Pharmacists a re trained to be drug information spec ialists, so we can save you time, m oney and perhaps your life (I'm t hinking about catching a deadly i nteraction). You should make your p harmacist your best friend. Show up w ith a mocha latte, you won't wait as l ong. Since I've been a pharmacist for 22 y ears, I know consumers have to wait t o get attention but that's because the p harmacist is backed up checking pres criptions for accuracy, on the phone d iscussing interactions or talking to a p hysician or nurse. Often, staff is s lim. We have your best interest at h eart, so please be patient. Here are t he reasons we are worth the wait: We can help you decide which o ver-the-counter medications help y our symptoms. Pharmacists are not d octors, but for example, based upon y our cough (wet or dry/hacking), we w ill help you choose an expectorant o r a cough suppressant. We know w hat kind of bandage you need for your sores, which salve for your skin rash, which lice products are convenient, and which blood sugar gadgets are accurate. We can field virtually any question you have about prescription drugs. We are like walking encyclopedias and if we don't know the answer off the top of our head, we have 4-inch references to dig into. Go ahead, bring it on. We know that allergy meds cause dry mouth and blurry vision, iron supplements will make your poop greenish-black (sorry if you got a visual on that), and how certain pain-relievers cause constipation. We know that stimulant laxatives are addictive! Didn't know that? Then it's time to make your pharmacist your best friend. We and our hard-working pharmacy technicians are there to keep you safe. We can find lower-cost options for you, as well as OTC equivalent medications. We know which meds come in generic and which don't... and when it's best to stick with the brand. We can help you stay compliant if you really need your medicine but it's hard to stomach. For example, we might advise taking narcotic pain relievers with food to avoid nausea or sleep aids on an empty stomach because they work faster. Want to eat grapefruit, or dairy, but don't know if it interacts? Pharmacists are your goto guy for these questions. Your regular pharmacist keeps a record of your drug profile on computer making it easy to screen for drug interactions. Our services are free and best of all, some pharmacies are open 24 hours a day, allowing the public access anytime. All you have to do is ask.Did You Know? Cooking with almond flour causes a lower blood sugar spike (if any) and can help stabilize blood sugar.

This information is not intended to treat, diagnose or cure your condition. How to stay safe at the pharmacy Dear Pharmacist Suzy Cohen Special to the News-SunTALLAHASSEE With Thanksgiving just days away, Florida Agriculture and Consumer Services Commissioner Charles H. Bronson reminds state residents to follow a few food safety tips to avoid a holiday celebration resulting in cases of food-borne illness. "Everybody enjoys holiday meals, and with a little care, nothing will mar the pleasure of the celebration," Bronson said. "But food safety measures are particularly important, especially with the variety of foods being served, the number of helpers in the kitchen and the fact that food is often left out for long periods of time after being served." Bronson offered these food safety tips: Clean and sanitize cooking equipment. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water before preparing food and after contact with raw meat, poultry, seafood and eggs. Keep raw foods away from cooked foods to avoid cross-contamination, and make sure that raw meat juices never come in contact with salads and vegetables. Defrost the turkey in the refrigerator, or if time is short, it can be defrosted under cold running water in a matter of hours. Nev er defrost the bird at room tem perature as bacteria can ra pidly grow on raw meat at room temperature. Keep cold foods co ld and hot foods hot, especial ly when serving buffet styl e. Buffet servings should be kept small and replenish ed often. State and federal foo d safety officials stress that t he turkey should be cooked to an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees, and a foo d thermometer should be us ed to verify the temperatur e. While many people coo k stuffing inside the bird, of ficials suggest that it be cooked in a separate p an because there is no guarant ee that the stuffing will rea ch 165 degrees at the same tim e as the turkey. Carefully store lef tovers. They should be refri gerated promptly and shou ld sit out no more than tw o hours after coming out of t he oven. Slice the turkey befo re refrigerating as who le turkeys do not store safely in the refrigerator. Leftove rs should be put in shallow co ntainers to speed up the coo ling process and prevent ba cterial growth. Visit http://www.florid aagriculture.com/consumers /f oodsafety_winter.htm. Adhere to food safety measures this holiday season, Bronson urges Special to the News-SunORLANDO Dental H ygiene and Dental A ssisting students from S outh Florida Community C ollege recently participate d in Special Smiles, a prog ram that provides Special O lympics athletes with dent al hygiene education, duri ng the Florida Special O lympics held in Orlando. SFCC's dental education s tudents instructed the athl etes on the proper technique f or brushing and flossing a nd informed them on how t o find a dentist in the area t hey live. "Many people don’t u nderstand dental hygiene or h ow to brush and floss corr ectly," said Cristal Lopez, s econd-year dental hygiene s tudent. "It makes me feel g ood to educate people in w ays that keep them healthy, a nd this group of people in p articular was very intereste d and excited about learni ng." "Their job is to educate o thers on proper dental h ygiene," said Bob S conyers, professor of D ental Assisting. Opportunities like these a llow them to provide that s ervice out in the communit y." Though the Special Smiles program is intended to educate others, SFCC's dental students found it to be an educational experience for them as well. "It was a great learning experience," said dental assisting student Jodi McWaters. "We realized that everybody learns differently, and we had to be creative with some of the techniques we taught the athletes. It helped me become comfortable with thinking outside of the box." "I learned how to have patience with special needs patients," said Norman Swaby, second-year dental hygiene student. "Even though they had different needs and learned in different ways, I found that if I was patient enough eventually they understood. We all have our differences, but that's what makes us all the same."

S pecial to the News-SunWhile the holiday season i s a time for merriment, g oodwill and cheer, it's also a time when accidents are at t heir peak. Physicians at H ighlands Medical Group a re keenly aware of the risk f actors associated with the h olidays and have valuable a dvice to offer on ways to h elp minimize the hazards t hat so often contribute to i njuries at this time of the y ear. Decorating safety While lights and decorat ions certainly make the holi days feel more festive, they a re often the culprits for a w ide range of injuries. A ccording to a report by the U .S. Consumer Product S afety Commission, hospital e mergency rooms treat more t han 12,500 people each year f or falls, cuts, shocks, and b urns caused by decorating m ishaps. "Ladder safety is critically i mportant when it comes to h anging lights and decorat ions," says Dr. Donald W are, Family Practice, H ighlands Medical Group Many falls and injuries can b e prevented by taking extra p recautions before climbing u p a ladder." To minimize decorating a ccidents, safety experts s uggest only using ladders in d aylight, and ensuring that t he legs are firmly on the g round before climbing onto i t. Also, use the Home S afety Council's 4-1 rule: F or each four feet you plan t o climb, move the base of t he ladder out one foot. D on't stand on the top step a nd always keep both feet on t he ladder-never put one foot o n a rung and the other foot o n a different surface. If you're decorating i ndoors and need to reach a h igh spot, always use a sturd y stepladder rather than s tanding on a chair or other p iece of furniture. Also, be s ure to unplug lights and o ther electrical decorations w hile you are installing t hem. Holiday fire hazards According to the Centers f or Disease Control and P revention, Christmas trees a ccount for the greatest perc entage of fire-related holid ay deaths each year. If you purchase an artific ial tree, make sure it is l abeled "fire resistant." With a live tree, find the freshest o ne possible and tap it on t he ground to ensure that m ost of the needles remain i ntact. Keep live trees well w atered and place them a s afe distance away from r adiators, fireplaces or h eaters. Only use lights that have b een tested by a reputable t esting lab-look for the U nderwriters Laboratory ( UL) seal of approval. C arefully check all lights to e nsure there are no frayed w ires, cracked sockets or l oose connections. Never place lighted cand les on or near the tree, w reaths, garlands, curtains, o r where young children can r each them, and don't leave c andles burning in unattende d rooms. Battery operated c andles are a safe alternative t o flame candles. They can b e safely used in any area of t he house and don't pose a fire risk. Although Christmas trees cause the most fire-related deaths, the top cause of home fires over the holiday season, according to the U.S. Fire Administration, is from cooking. "With so many things vying for your attention over the holidays, it's easy to get distracted while in the kitchen," says Dr Ware, "However, turning away from a boiling pot or leaving a stovetop item unattended is extremely dangerous and can cause a fire in no time." Playing it safe with toys In 2008, an estimated 235,000 toy-related injuries were treated in hospital emergency rooms in the United States, according to a report by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. "While government regulations help to keep toys safe for children, you still have to be on your guard," says Dr. Ware "Atoy that's safe for an older child, like a board game with small pieces or a model car with removable parts, can be very dangerous for a younger child who can easily choke on those small pieces." According to Dr. Ware, a good way to determine if an object is a choking hazard is the "toilet roll tube test." If a toy is small enough to fit through a toilet roll tube, then it is small enough to be swallowed and to lodge in a child's throat. Safety experts recommend reading the instructions for toys and games carefully, inspecting them for loose parts and sharp edges, and storing any pieces that aren't child-friendly out of reach. And it's not only toys that are choking hazards. Colorful holiday decorations are also very appealing to young children, while plastic wrapping can pose a suffocation risk. To keep accidents at bay, you should discard wrappers, ribbons, bows and packaging materials immediately after opening gifts. With older children's gifts such as bicycles, skateboards or in-line skates, make sure your child knows the risks involved with their new gift and that they have the skill and coordination necessary to safely operate it. Ensure that they wear a helmet and any other safety gear before putting their gift to the test, and bear in mind that the holidays require more vigilance than usual as children can get overexcited and take greater risks with their new toys.

Special to the News-SunSEBRING How did Jesus live the first 30 y ears of his life? Anew book takes readers on a walk with Mary as she describes events f rom her son's early life through journal e ntries. In her inaugural book "Jesus My Son: M ary's Journal of Jesus'Early Life," author M ary Bailey offers a new perspective in a w ork of scripture-based biblical fiction that a ims to provide insight into Jesus'life as a y oung boy. Introducing events that may have happened b etween the miraculous birth and the time J esus leaves home, the journal format prov ides substance to Jesus'early years and a pplies context to some of today's current J ewish customs. "Using a journal, Mary is able to reveal her d eepest fears for what might become of J esus," said Bailey, who splits her time b etween Sebring and Frankfort, Ky. "It focuse s strictly on Mary's point of view." Maintaining that Mary's life was very simi lar to the lives of mothers today, journal e ntries recall such milestones as Jesus' t eething, first words and beginning school. I nsightful and enlightening, the easy-to-read f ormat allows readers to see Jesus interact w ith other children his age and grow into the m an with whom many are most familiar. An inspirational narrative, "Jesus My Son" s eeks to provide possible answers to quest ions often asked of Jesus'early life, as well a s a means by which readers can cultivate a d eeper, more personal understanding of Jesus C hrist. "By knowing how Jesus lived as a child, p eople can better relate to him as a man," B ailey said. "Anything we know about Jesus strengthens our relationship with him." For more information, visit http://www.jesusmyson.com. Bailey is a member of the American Christian Fiction Writers, Kentucky Christian Writers, Kentucky Author's Book Club and the Florida Writer's Association. Now retired, she worked for 32 years as a technology professional for the Commonwealth of Kentucky. She attended Eastern Kentucky University in Richmond, Ky.

Continued from page 7B Church News Snapshots In our house, we have a s tack of Reader's Digests. R ecent publications have f eatured articles that easily g rab your attention. Afew t itles are as follows: "50 s ecrets your Pilot won't tell y ou," "13 things Car Dealers w on't tell you," or "Doctors c onfess their fatal mistakes." We all are quite skeptical o f businessman and salesm en in professional fields b ut are expected to trust t hem. We question their i ntegrity, yet still must d epend upon their services. W hen we have the opportun ity to know what they are d oing behind the scenes, we p erk up with great interest. But if we would each be h onest, everybody has a s ecret life. Perhaps there are s ome skeletons in your close t that you have yet to recko n with. It could be some i njustice by someone that y ou refuse to forgive. Maybe t here is some sin that you h ave attempted to cover, but t he guilt still plagues you. Y our past haunts you and it's y our secret. In some cases, e ven your dearest friends a nd nearest family do not e ven know about it. These skeletons are holdi ng you back from truly livi ng. God knows what is in y our closet. He knows what has happened in your past and what you will not let go of. He knows what you are going through that no one else knows about. He sees what is going on behind closed doors. He also sees the pure in heart, and those who silently do what is right when know one else notices. He knows your righteous desires and honest motives. The eyes of God are continually beholding both the evil and the good. What are you doing in secret? In the secret life of King David, he harbored the sin of lust for another man's wife. He took her for himself and had a child out of wedlock. He tried to keep it a secret and even attempted to cover his sin by murder. But what he did in secret, his son Absalom did openly on the roof top for all of Israel to see. We learn that private sin becomes public scandal. God says, "Be sure your sin will find you out." But not everything in secret has to be bad. In fact, the most sacred times of God's people are experienced in private. Jesus taught that giving, prayer, and fasting are acts of righteousness that must be done in secret. It doesn't matter who else notices the time we spend in prayer because it is a closet matter. However, this kind of secret life does have direct implications on the effectiveness of public ministry. God the Father promises a public reward for private prayer. Remember that the quality and content of your secret life will have public consequences. Do you have secret thoughts and desires that are evil and incriminating? The truth will come out in your words and actions. The result of secret sin is spiritual poverty. However, when you develop a Christ-like secret life of prayer, you will possess certain power for living and victory in the Christian life. Luke Knickerbocker is the pastor of Bethel Baptist Church in Lake Placid, Florida, located on 216 E. Park St. You may email him at knickprint@yahoo.com. Their church website is visitbethelbaptist.com. Your secret life can be costly Timeless Treasure Luke Knickerbocker We have all met people who seem to do n othing but complain. I used to be one of t hem. Such people often don't realize they a re being chronically negative. They don't t hink about how they sound to those around t hem, or the effect they have on others. If you are one of those people who finds it e asier to complain than to find something g ood in life, think about how you sound to t hose around you. Think about your view of l ife. Are you happy? Probably not. If you c onsider yourself a happy person, make it a p oint to be a blessing to your family and f riends. Ask yourself how you can exhibit y our happiness. If everyone you love seems t o not enjoy being around you, it may be b ecause you are a chronic complainer. Negativity will do one of two things: it w ill drive people away from you or it will m ake someone want to help you solve the p roblem you're complaining about. Most c omplainers don't want either of those r esponses. They just want someone to listen a nd they don't think they have anything w orth saying if they aren't complaining. The good news is God always listens. He d oesn't like constant complaining but He a nd He alone has the power to change the c ircumstances. He has the power to change our attitude. He has the power to lift our spirits and find joy in life. Without Him permanent change is impossible. Jesus promised us an abundant life. Can you see your children happy? Can you see yourself happy? Dare to imagine it. Dare to ask God to save you from your sin and unhappiness. Dare to let Him take control of your life. Though there will still be some problems, He will help you through them and make you a stronger, better person in the process. You won't be sorry! John 10:9-10 says, "I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." This is talking about Jesus being the only way to heaven, and His purpose in saving us from hell. Aleta Kay can be reached at themarriagementor@yahoo.com Are you happy being miserable?

My girlfriend and I have been together for three years. Needless to say, an engagement is right around the corner. I have a sister who has struggled her entire life dating the wrong men. She's beautiful inside and out. She called me last night crying, asking me why men always cheat on her. Most people would assume that the use of the word "always" is an exaggeration. I would have to say that 90 percent of her boyfriends, have indeed, cheated on her one way or another whether it was in high school, or when she dated a race car driver or, more recently, an acquaintance of mine. What can I say to reassure her that there are some good guys left in this world who won't cheat? Looking For Answers For Sis DearLooking For Answers: Tell your sister that there are men with character who take relationships seriously. They may not be as glamorous as a race car driver, or flashy or glib, but they have more important qualities to offer. Point out that when one man after another is unfaithful, it can damage a woman's self-esteem. And when that happens it can make her insecure and willing to suspend her better judgment out of fear that she'll be alone. Explain that women with high self-esteem receive more respect because they won't settle for less, and that they don't jump into relationships they wait for a man to prove himself. Men value more highly what they have to work for. Perhaps that will help to set her straight. DearAbby: I have lived an amazing life surrounded by family, friends and loved ones. My parents and maternal grandparents are still active in my daily life. Because I am so close to all of them I'm scared, worried and sometimes downright depressed at the thought of losing any of them. I know in the circle of life, death should be accepted as the next great adven ture, but I don't know if I can ha ndle that. I'm ask ing for advice on how to handle these events now I do not have fam ily near me but a n amazing circle o f friends for support. I just know that I'm going to sl ip into a world of sadness th at I'm afraid I won't come out of. My problems may seem minor in light of today's issues, but I do need guidance. Selfish in Las Veg as DearSelfish: The concerns you are feeling are not "selfish." They are no rmal, if somewhat premature.

Man seeks words of comfort for sister unlucky in love DIVERSIONS Dear Abby By CHRISTYLEMIRE APMovie CriticFear and loathing, doom a nd gloom permeate nearly e very minute of "Harry P otter and the Deathly H allows: Part 1," the beginn ing of the end of the behem oth boy-wizard series. This seventh film in the f ranchise, directed once a gain by David Yates (who p reviously helmed parts five a nd six, "Harry Potter and the O rder of the Phoenix" and Harry Potter and the HalfB lood Prince"), begins with n early suffocating tension, as H arry (Daniel Radcliffe) f inds himself face-to-face w ith his destiny: being the t arget of the evil Lord V oldemort's deadly wrath. F riends and allies will have t o band together to protect h im; some of them won't m ake it out alive. Finally, the weight of H arry's past and the frighteni ng unknown of his future, as d etailed so thoroughly and v ividly in J.K. Rowling's b eloved books, are about to c ollide. Yates'film is gorgeously b leak, with sprawling, endo f-the-Earth shots of foreb oding mountains and lonely b eaches from Oscar-nominate d cinematographer Eduardo S erra ("Girl With a Pearl E arring") that reflect the c haracters'moods. Serra has n ever shot a "Harry Potter" m ovie before and brings a t otally different kind of artf ulness to the aesthetics w hile still remaining consist ent with this familiar world. ( "Part 1" is in 2-D because, t hankfully, Warner Bros. c hose not to rush the 3-D c onversion process; "Part 2" w ill be in 3-D when it hits t heaters in July.) The films have grown d arker in tone and theme, and g iven this heightened emotional challenge, the three young stars once again rise to it. Having spent half their lives in these characters, their interactions with one another seem more comfortable and believable than ever. Radcliffe has been solid for a while now, and Emma Watson as Hermione Granger has grown into an engaging young woman, but Rupert Grint as Ron Weasley gives his most confident performance yet. The supporting cast, as always, is mind-bogglingly star-studded, led by Ralph Fiennes as the fearsome Voldemort and Alan Rickman as the duplicitous Professor Snape, and including Helena Bonham Carter, Imelda Staunton, Julie Walters and newcomer Bill Nighy. It's a welcome sight to see the return of larger-than-life character actors like Robbie Coltrane as the lovable lug Hagrid and Brendan Gleeson as the irreverent "Mad-Eye" Moody; on the other end of the spectrum is Toby Jones, returning as the voice of the diminutive and heroic house elf Dobby. But because "Part 1" sets up the final showdown in "Part 2" which Yates also directed there's lots of exposition in Steve Kloves' script, lots of characters and plot lines introduced and reintroduced from films past. While it's thrilling off the top, it repeatedly sags in the middle before ultimately picking up at the cliffhanger climax. Voldemort is on the hunt for Harry, and has sent his minions to capture him alive so that he can kill him himself. Meanwhile, Harry, Hermione and Ron must track down and destroy the Horcruxes scattered containers that hold pieces of Voldemort's soul, which are crucial to Harry's survival. But this pursuit is more dangerous than ever, since Voldemort's Death Eaters have taken over the Ministry of Magic, leaving Harry with less protection. And as we know from the previous film, the regal and wise Hogwarts headmaster Albus Dumbledore (Michael Gambon, in brief flashbacks) isn't around to help him, either. The visually striking sequence in which Harry and his pals assume fake identities to enter the ministry which is hidden inside the sewers and looks like something out of the Third Reich is dazzling and intimidating at once. Humor is hard to find here, as you'd expect in a film with the words "Deathly Hallows" in the title, but there are a few laughs to be had at the absurdity of the situation in which Harry, Hermione and Ron find themselves. (Earlier in the film, Ron's twin brothers also provide some of their patented teasing banter.) But the imaginative energy the students enjoy at Hogwarts is gone here part one of "Deathly Hallows" never once sets foot in the school's stately corridors and instead, our trio is very much thrown into the real world. Temporarily stuck in London, they find themselves in a car chase and a shootout (albeit with wands), busy streets and dark alleyways. Danger lurks at every turn, and here, Yates mixes in some hand-held camerawork to provide a more intimate glimpse of their fear. They're more grown-up than ever now that they're on the verge of leaving school, and since they're on the road searching for Horcruxes (and trying to keep Harry alive), they have plenty of time to explore their blossoming feelings toward each other. These are the sections that sap the film of its energy, but by the time "Part 1" ends, you'll be anxious to see what tricks Harry has up his sleeve once he's forced to face the ultimate evil.

LIVING 12B PAGE News-Sun Friday, November 19, 2010 November 2002 Chris ColumbusHarry is lonely and miserable over the summer with the Dursleys who banish him to his room. Dobby, a house elf, warns Harry against returning to Hogwarts. Harry ignores Dobby's warnings and tricks and returns to school with Ron in a flying car. The trio discover a giant snake called a Basilisk is stalking the castle and attacking students. Ron's younger sister, Ginny (Bonnie Wright) is taken by the Basilisk and the new (D.A.D.A.)professor, Gilderoy Lockhart, is no help. The vain professor is ridiculously inept, so Ron, Hermione and Harry must find the Chamber of Secrets to rescue Ginny themselves. Gilderoy LockhartThe narcissistic wizarding celebrity is played by Kenneth Branagh. Age 13 Age 12 Age 14 Dobby BYMERRIELEININGER, MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNEIn many ways, fans can relate to Harry Potter. He had to wait out the summer with the inhospitable Dursleys, until that bright day when he could get on the Hogwarts Express and be with friends again. Likewise, fans have had to wait impatiently between movie releases to be able to step into a dark theater and once again be immersed in that charming wizarding world. But now, with the first part of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows," coming to screens on Nov. 19, Harry, Ron and Hermione won't be returning to Hogwarts. Everything has changed for them, and it will for the series'fans, too. Although part two doesn't apparate into theaters until July, it's time to come to terms with the end of Harry Potter. And "The Deathly Hallows" is not a light-hearted romp. Despite a few moments that will put smiles on our faces the wedding of Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour, and the "Seven Harrys" scene, where six others take Polyjuice Potion to appear as Harry Potter our beloved trio, who grew up before our eyes, will be on the run, so it's important to be up to speed on the story. Before the darkness descends, let's take a look back at the movies we've loved for nearly the past decade. To read a review of the movie, turn to page 11B. November 2001 Chris Columbus "Home Alone" Quirinus Quirrell Played by Ian Hart, Quirrell is perpetually nervous and wears a purple turban to hide his dark secret. Oh, how they've grown ... Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe), Hermione Granger (Emma Watson), Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint)Release dates Directors So many characters, so many perilsHogwarts' high turnover for Defense AgainsttheDarkArts (D.A.D.A.) teacherAge 12* Age 11 Age 13 June 2004 Alfonso Cuaron "Y Tu Mama Tambien"Harry learns he's in danger from a notorious criminal who has escaped the Dementor guards at Azkaban prison. But the wrongly convicted Sirius Black (Gary Oldman), who is accused of being loyal to Voldemort, is Harry's godfather. Students on the Hogwarts Express have a run-in with the Dementors, sinister creatures that drain the happiness of anyone nearby. The encounter leaves Harry unconscious, but he is rescued by the new D.A.D.Ateacher, Remus Lupin (David Thewlis). Lupin helps Harry develop a Patronus, an apparition to fend off the Dementors. Despite his kindly ways, Lupin has a dark secret that almost gets Harry and his friends killed. Harry meets Sirius in the Shrieking Shack where they discover Ron's pet rat is really Peter Pettigrew (aka Wormtail), the real betrayer and Death Eater. The discovery can clear Sirius's name. Of note: Actor Richard Harris, who portrayed Hogwarts headmaster, Professor Dumbledore in the films, died of Hodgkin's Disease at the age of 72, and was replaced by Michael Gambon for the remaining films. Remus Lupin (aka Moony)Played by David Thewlis, this instructor transforms into a vicious werewolf. Age 14 Age 13 Age 15 November 2005 Mike Newell "Four Weddings and Funeral"Hogwarts is selected as the site of the year-long Triwizard Tournament, and hosts students from foreign wizarding schools. One student from each school is chosen by the Goblet of Fire to compete, but the cup tosses out a fourth name Harry Potter. Hogwart's other champion is Cedric Diggory (played by future "Twilight" vampire Robert Pattinson). Meanwhile, fears are heightened as Voldemort's (Ralph Fiennes) lackeys, the Death Eaters, are making themselves known; and more trouble is stirred up by a reporter with a poison pen, Rita Skeeter (Miranda Richardson). In addition, the new D.A.D.A. teacher, "Mad-Eye" Moody, is being impersonated by the evil Barty Crouch Jr. "Mad-Eye" MoodyBrendan Gleeson plays the famous auror, someone who pursues and apprehends dark wizards. Age 16 Age 15 Age 17 July 2007 David Yates Control changes hands for the last time.Harry, Ron and Hermione are made aware of The Order of the Phoenix, who fought against Voldemort 14 years earlier during the First Wizarding War. The trio learn Snape is a double agent although it's unclear which side holds his true loyalty. The Order must work outside the Ministry of Magic, which refuses to believe Voldemort has returned, and has installed the sadistic Delores Umbridge as D.A.D.Ateacher, "high inquisitor," and eventually, headmistress. Agroup of Hogwarts students rebel against Umbridge by forming Dumbledore's Army (D.A.), training in secret to learn magical defensive techniques. Six D.A. members, including Harry, use their skills against Death Eaters while trying to rescue Sirius at the Ministry's Department of Mysteries. It's there the demented Bellatrix Lestrange (Helena Bonham Carter) gleefully kills Sirius. Dolores UmbridgeImelda Staunton plays the cruel and abusive teacher who does very little teaching. Age 17 Age 16 Age 18 July 2009 David YatesSeverus Snape finally wins the position of Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, and although he remains in Dumbledore's good graces, he has made an unbreakable vow with Draco's mother. This vow forces Snape to protect Draco who is forced to carry out a task from Voldemort: To kill Dumbledore. After Harry finds out that Voldemort has split his soul into seven pieces, Dumbledore and Harry leave Hogwarts to retrieve a Horcrux, a locket that contains one of the pieces, but Dumbledore must drink a poison in order to retrieve it. Back at Hogwarts, a weakened Dumbledore encounters Draco, but he falters, and Snape takes over, killing the headmaster himself in order to save the boy. Severus Snape Alan Rickman plays the complex Potions teacher turned D.A.D.A. teacher. Age 19 Age 18 Age 20 Part 1: Nov. 19 Part 2: Scheduled to be released July 2011 David Yates (Spoiler alert!) In it, Harry, Ron and Hermione take to the road to hide from the Death Eaters, who have now taken over the reins at the Ministry, and made Snape headmaster of Hogwarts. While continuing Dumbledore's work searching for the Horcruxes, they discover the tale of the Deathly Hallows: three objects (the Elder Wand, the Resurrection Stone and the Cloak of Invisibility) supposedly created by Death, which would make Voldemort invincible. The trio slowly make some headway, but they are isolated from their friends and family, and the stress begins to divide them. They are soon captured by the Death Eaters, and Dobby is killed by Bellatrix. The film reportedly ends with Voldemort taking the Elder Wand from Dumbledore's grave. In the final film, Harry, Hermione and Ron return to Hogwarts when they learn a Horcrux is hidden there. Voldemort and the Death Eaters descend on Hogwarts, and the Battle of Hogwarts begins. Voldemort kills Snape, thinking it will be the only way to become the master of the Elder Wand. Before he dies, Snape reveals his motivation for all his actions has always been to protect Harry, the son of his childhood love, Lily Potter. Harry also learns that he, himself, is the final Horcrux, and must allow himself to be killed in order to defeat Voldemort. Lord VoldemortPlayed by Ralph Fiennes, Voldemort and his evil minions are the reason for all those D.A.D.A. classes. AGES ARE APPROXIMATE FOR THE TIME OF FILMING. Diggory Dumbledore The first chapter begins on Harry Potter's 11th birthday, when he discovers he's a wizard, as were his parents. He learns they were killed by an evil wizard named Voldemort when he was an infant a fact hidden from him by his awful relatives, the Dursleys. Harry enters Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and finds he is something of a legend known as "The Boy Who Lived" because he survived Voldemort's attack which left him with a lightning-shaped scar on his forehead. Harry becomes friends with Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. Although he is a good student and a star Quidditch player, he's treated with derision by Potions Professor Severus Snape (Alan Rickman) and an arrogant student Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton). Harry, Ron and Hermione determine the missing Sorcerer's Stone a magical object that extends life must be the item Fluffy, a three-headed dog, is guarding. Harry is suspicious of Snape's intentions regarding the stone after witnessing him threaten the meekDefense Against the Dark Arts (D.A.D.A.)Professor Quirinus Quirrell. Harry must get the stone before Voldemort or his followers, the Death Eaters.

Although the civilian aircraft was participating in military drills at the Avon Park Air Force Bombing Range, no military personnel were reported to be on the plane, which crashed in a pasture, according to the Sheriffs Office. News video showed debris scattered over a wide area. The tail of the aircraft was partially submerged in a small pond, and was the only recognizable piece of wreckage.

Now there is some tension between the town council and its own recreation board. In the past, the county reimbursed the town half of the annual costs for running the active parks. But in the fiscal year 2009-2010, the commissioners voted to reimburse a smaller percentage. They put aside funding for recreation in general, but there is disagreement over how the money is to be divided, so nothing has been decided. In the meantime, because Lake Placid has to pay all costs up front and is already working with greatly reduced revenues, town council member Steve Bastardi has called the situation a train wreck and proposed closing the parks altogether. Bastardi was particularly upset when he learned recreation director John Komaso had included $22,500 in his budget as income from user fees when no user fees were in place. After deciding to give the new county commission members time to settle into their seats and th en approach them to work out a solutio n, the council asked Komaso to create a user fee structure. The council then asked the recr eation committee to come up with a plan to raise the $22,500.

This is a remarkable achievement for the underprivileged children in fourth through seventh grades who have never played a musical instrument. The 12-week Percussion Education for Children Program was presented by the Primal Connection and funded in large part by Heartland for Children. In the program, the children learned how to play a variety of percussion instruments, music basics, five rhythms and the teamwork required to play ensemble. In the process, they learned two African, one Brazilian, and one Primal Connection rhythm. In addition the APSquad created their own rhythm and arranged it for performance. Primal Connection instructors Fred Leavitt and Denise Miriani worked with the 17 eager students to bring them together physically and spiritually to create an intricate weave of percussion music. The children are ready willing and able to take the stage and rock the house. The public is invited to enjoy the concert free of charge.

Call 385-6155 News-Sun photo by SAMANTHAGHOLAR Cracker Trail Elementary second graders visited the Recycling Center on Skipper Road on Thursday morning. Students learned how to categorize and properly dispose of all materials and techniques that help keep recycling simple. By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Several groups of second grade students visited the Recycling Center throughout the week learning all about the importance of recycling in the community. On Thursday, second graders from Cracker Trail Elementary visited and toured the center. The students were lead by recycling program manager Christy Reed. Reed has worked for years as an advocate for the Keep Highlands County Beautiful Program. The students walked through the Skipper Road recycling center and learned the many aspects of recycling. They learned at each station how to determine what materials are good and can be recycled and what is considered contaminated, said Reed. Contaminated goods are things that the center can not recycle and usually wind up in the Highlands County landfill. Things like shrubbery guards that have been in gardens; things like that we cant do anything with. Its a lot of work filtering through all the materials we get dropped off here, Reed said. Large piles of plastic bottles must be sorted through by hand to ensure each item is recyclable and not contaminated. As the employees at the center sorted through the enormous pile water and soda bottles and milk jugs, the students watched as the conveyor demonstrated how the bottles go through the recycling process. Students learned about the materials that the center takes: glass, plastic, card board, aluminum, steel cans and mixed papers. Students also learned where the majority of the mixed paper brought to the center comes from. Junk mail! they all shouted. Reed hopes that the visit to the center will enable students with the information they need to help out at home with recycling and help to better the community. When they get home now they will know that this can be recycled and that cant be. It is a good way for them to teach not only themselves but show their families ways to take care of garbage properly, Reed said. Field trips teach CTE students about recycling By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING The Highlands County School Board received its two new members on Tuesday evening.

Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Unemployment compensation taxes are set to nearly triple next year for almost half of Floridas employers who pay the minimum rate, but they wont change for those paying the maximum, state revenue officials said Wednesday. Ayear ago, an even bigger unemployment tax increase had been announced for 2010. It drew howls of protest from the business community, and lawmakers rolled it back the first chance they had. That forced the state, though, to borrow more federal money to pay compensation owed to jobless workers. Lawmakers had hoped the economy would improve and the unemployment rate would drop so some of the compensation tax receipts could be diverted to begin paying off the loans. The jobless rate instead has increased, hitting 11.9 percent in October 0.7 point higher than the same month last year. The state has borrowed $1.74 billion so far and hasnt been able to repay any of it. Were scratching our heads about it now, said Rick McAlister, president of the Florida Retail Federation. Were not in a whole lot better shape than we were last year. With more than a million Floridia ns still out of work, the tax increase is due to increase under an automat ic trigger in state law. Its designed to keep pace with t he growing demand for benefits and a higher number of employers payin g the maximum rate. Employerstaxes are individual ly set.

Acharter outlines not only h ow elections will be held a nd what officers the city w ill have, but it also lays out t he powers and limitations t hat city officials will have. It a lso dictates what form the l ocal government will take, a nd who can be involved in t he decision process. No one would disagree that t he current Avon Park docum ent is pieced together and s omewhat outdated, having b een drafted in the 1960s or 70s. Some of the items in the c harter, such as the requirement for a civil service board, are no longer needed, and should be removed. Other items, such as making the police a permanent department under the charter, possibly needs to be added. But, while we agree that an update needs to happen, we are concerned about how that update will occur. Changing a city charter should be a community effort and the citizens should agree to some extent that the changes made are what they want. So far, the council has given very little direction on how that should occur, other than to direct the city attorney for a new draft. And those citizens who will have to vote on the changes have not been involved in the first redraft, and that is kind of putting the cart before the horse, so to speak. The city attorney presented a redraft compiled of the common items from other cities over a week ago, and city staff has already held discussions on what changes they would like to see. Avon Park residents are now beginning to ask When do the citizens of Avon Park get involved with a charter change? and Who is included, and what is the process for making suggestions and changes to the new charter? So far, those questions have not been answered. The News-Sun would suggest that like a visioning plan, a charter redraft should be a part of a town-hall style of meetings. More than one gathering should be required, and those meetings should be held in several locations throughout the city in order to invite neighborhood type input. All of the input, data and information gathered should be handed to a committee of citizens and city staff to be drafted into the new charter, which then should be on review and available for any citizen to look over for at least 60 days. After that, city staff and the city attorney should review the document, making whatever changes are necessary to hold with state and federal law, if any. Thats when the process of official public hearings followed by a council vote to put the changes out for referendum should occur. Changing a city charter is supposed to be a communi ty affair, one that fully engag es the public. There is still tim e to make that happen, and it is our hope that Avon Park s council will move in th at direction. Otherwise the referendu m might turn into another n oshow vote.

If Sen. Mitch McConnells pledge to get behind the movement to ban the cynical practice of earmark spending is any indication that Republicans heard the message voters sent them in the recent Congressional elections, the GOPis off to a good start. Its about time. Over the years members of Congress have acquired a lot of bad habits and the use of so-called earmarks the Senate tacking on spending measures to bills that have already passed the House are among the worst. McConnells choosing to target that practice suggests that congressional Republicans may have received the votersmessage that they will no longer tolerate the kind of shoddy methods members of Congress sometimes use to feather their own legislative nests. Its the old idea of one hand washing the other. In the case of ear marks, both hands are dirty. While the financial impact of using earmarks is comparatively small, the effect of members of Congress using them has proven to be out of proportion to the amount of government spending involved. If a member of Congress wants his colleaguesbacking for his own pet projects he can swap his vote for whatever measures they favor and then tack them on to bills they pass. Thats earmarking. Get rid of the practice of earmarking and it will then be a case of legislation standing on its own without the bribes involved in ear marking saying to your colleagues, You vote for my bill and Ill support yours no matter how bad it might be. House Republicans have already promised to stop putting earmarks on bills they pass and send on to the Senate, and Sen. McConnells pledge to follow suit suggests that earmarks hopefully may be a thing of the past. Moreover, House Speakerto-be John Boehner, R-Ohio, has said the GOPmajority will stick to McConnells pledge in the next Congress due to take power in January. Democrats, however, have not followed McConnells lead. They have defende d earmarks, which they view as a key method of slipping federal funding to their states to pay for their pet projects. Observers point to the Transportation bill now pending before Congress as one example of the effect on legislation of ending earmarks. Democrats fe ar that ending the earmarking process could kill many of their own local pet projects by starving them of federal funds one method they u se to funnel taxpayersmoney to their states. In July, the House passed a Transportation bill with a whopping $70 billion price tag. It was loaded down wit h no less than 560 earmarks, many of which funded local transportation or infrastructure projects. The Senate ha s not followed suit, and indica tions are that action on the measure may be stalled. In taking his stand on ear marks, Sen. McConnell defended his past support of earmarking, telling colleagues, Make no mistake, I know the good that has com e from the projects I have helped support throughout my state. I don't apologize for them. He then added, But there is simply no doubt that the abuse of this practice has caused Americans to view it as a symbol of the waste an d the out-of-control spending that every Republican in Washington is determined to fight. And unless people lik e me show the American people that we're willing to follow through on small or eve n symbolic things, we risk los ing them on our broader efforts to cut spending and rein in government. Sen. McConnells conver sion to anti-earmark champi on could spell an end to the practice. Good for you, Mitch. Han g in there.

Park fee a must to eat at restaurant E ditor: My husband and I stayed in Sebring t his past week and just love your comm unity. We love the small town feel, a nd especially appreciate the natural b eauty of this area of Florida. We a lways visit Highlands Hammock when w e are in town (we live in Englewood, a bout two hours drive from here) and t his trip was no exception. It is so nice to be able to experience F lorida as it once was, without all of t he development and commercializat ion. I wonder how many local people are a ware of a new policy that requires p aid admission if you want to eat at the H ammock Restaurant inside the park? A pparently Highlands Hammock is u nder new management, and this is a n ew policy that has threatened to bankr upt the owner. Currently, if you want to stop by for a wild orange ice cream or go to the f ish fry on Friday nights, you must s hell out for the park admission. It has a lways been a highlight of our visits to e nd our time in the park at the snack s hop where else in Florida can you g et a slice of wild orange pie? If you agree that this policy is unfair t o your local community (with the e conomy the way it is, whos going to s pend $6 if all you want to do is buy an i ce cream cone?), write a letter or make a call. I for one will be very sad if the n ext time I visit, this local landmark is g one. Dont let it happen. Dawn Carpenter Port CharlotteGovernment always runs in the red E ditor: The recent article on the bankruptcy o f the U.S. Postasl Service and the cutb ack of service is just another example o f how the government runs its business. All the politicians, registered lobbyists, and countless other government entities know how to reduce their expenses by passing them on to the general public. Every day the mail is delivered, my box is loaded with junk mail that must be handled by the postal employees at a greatly reduced rate. Why should lobbyists and politicians get mail service at greatly reduced rates while the post office is going bankrupt and threatening to cut service to the public for whom the Postal Service was intended. Most of us now use e-mail or find other means of communication to get around the high cost of mailing a letter. Do you remember when the cost of mailing a letter was a 3-cent stamp? I do. Just another example of how the government runs its business. In the red. Lew Predmore SebringOpening septic tank stops germinationEditor: I dont know who came up with the bright idea to have septic tanks pumped at least once every five years to protect the water. But I think if this is a problem, we need to think about putting diapers on all the cows. As the amount of cows in Florida is second only to Texas. And they crap on the ground and this goes into the ground and contaminates 100 percent. Water coming out of a septic tank is 90 percent pure. I dont want to drink water that is 10 percent crap. But sand is the best filter there is, by the time it reaches the water supply, it will be 100 percent pure. When you open a septic tank you stop the germination. So when you close the tank you must add something to re-start the germination. Chuck Edwards Avon Park Septic Tank Law not what was proposedEditor: To begin with a bill sb550 was signed into law in June of this year. The law takes effect Jan. 1, 2011. Recently the effective date was moved to July 2011. What sb550 says is that anyone in the state who has a septic tank system, i.e. tank and/or drain field, must have it pumped and inspected every five years. Pumped means anywhere from $200 to $500 every five years. If the inspection reveals that you need to have your system replaced in part or in whole, cost could range between $5,000 to $15,000 and if you do not begin work in the prescribed time frame you can be accessed a $500 a day fine until the work is begun/completed. The inspection will be done by a septic tank company. I have it on good authority that this was not legislators intention when the law was passed. Changes were made to the bill (to expand coverage to the entire state of Florida) that everyone was not aware of at the time of the vote. This means that repeal is likely, but I would suggest that sb550 should be repealed without any further action. If it should not have been acted on in the first place then we should not begin to look at making compromises as some have suggested, i.e. move the pump/inspection date to 10 years. It should not have been approved in the first place. Repeal and forget sb550. We are trying to solve problems we dont have to solve except in the minds of a few people. Isnt life complicated enough without this intrusion in the lives of so many (estimates are 40 percent or more of the population of Florida). Updates to follow until the repeal process is complete.

The news is just a click away!www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN By JENNIFER PELTZ Associated PressNEWYORK Alawyer was sentenced T hursday to six months in jail after being c onvicted of an ultramodern crime that was a ll about antiquity: using online aliases to h arass people in an academic debate about t he Dead Sea Scrolls. Raphael Golb was sentenced on identity t heft and other charges in a rare criminal c ase centered on Internet impersonation a nd a very rare trial that aired a bitter schola rly debate over which ancient Jews created t he scrolls. Prosecutors said Golb crossed the line b etween discourse and crime by using fake e -mail accounts and writing blog posts u nder assumed names to discredit detractors o f his father, a scholar. Golb said the writi ngs amounted to pointed parody and acad emic whistle-blowing that he felt were p rotected by free-speech rights. Im sorry for all the wounding of feeli ngs that my e-mail antics have caused, he t old a court Thursday. Before this case, I d id not know that satirical hoaxes of the s ort were treated as crimes in the United S tates of America. But state Supreme Court Justice Carol B erkman said his conviction was about a ctions, not ideas. Its not his words, but his conduct, she s aid before sentencing him. It is still a c rime to imitate people in the manner that ( Golb) did. ... The victims felt invaded and h urt by this. The gaunt, 50-year-old Golb was led off i n handcuffs to start serving his sentence. H is lawyers planned to ask an appellate c ourt later Thursday to grant him bail while he appeals. Golbs September trial often felt like a lecture series, touching on topics ranging from Judaic studies to Enlightenment philosophy. Found in caves in Israel beginning in the 1940s, the scrolls contain the earliest known versions of portions of the Hebrew Bible. They have provided important insight into the history of Judaism and the beginnings of Christianity. Some scholars, including New York University Judaic studies chairman Lawrence Schiffman, say the texts were assembled by a sect known as the Essenes. Others including Norman Golb, a University of Chicago historian and Golbs father believe the writings were the work of a range of Jewish groups and communities. Schiffman went to authorities after some of his students and colleagues received emails from an address that used his name. The e-mails appeared to have him admitting that he plagiarized Norman Golbs work and asking the recipients to keep quiet about it. Schiffman denies copying the historians work. Raphael Golb, a literature scholar and real estate lawyer with a Harvard Ph.D. and an NYU law degree, acknowledged during his trial that he wrote the messages. But he said he never intended for anyone to believe Schiffman actually sent them and portrayed them as satire, irony, parody. Manhattan assistant district attorney John Bandler said Thursday that Golbs activities werent commentary, but thousands of hours of malicious harassment and impersonation.

My h eart just bleeds for his legacy a nd his family, said Crist, w ho leaves office in January a nd figures its sort of now o r never. Exactly what happened that n ight at the Dinner Key A uditorium is one of rock n r oll historys enduring myst eries. Morrison clearly teased t he crowd and went into an o bscenity-laced rant. He was baiting the audie nce, telling them., Im going t o do it, Im going to show it t o you. Thats what youve c ome for isnt it?Doors k eyboardist Ray Manzarek t old The Associated Press. The girls were screaming Yes! Yes!Guys were saying, No! Dont do it! Manzarek said Morrison p ut a shirt in front of his c rotch and wiggled his hand b ehind it. He briefly pulled t he shirt away and said, I just s howed you. Did you see it? And of course nobody saw i t, Manzarek said. He and g uitarist Robby Krieger said M orrison had recently seen a s tage group called The Living T heater, which was performi ng plays in which actors disr obed. The concert was his f irst and only attempt to do s omething similar, but he didn t follow through with e xposing himself, they said. I wouldnt put it past him. Im sure he would have done it if he had been a little drunker or if (manager) Bill Siddons hadnt been holding his arms around his waist and preventing him from doing so after Ray said, Dont let him do it!Krieger said. Really, as far as the pardoning thing, I dont think Jim would care one way or another, but his family would, so that to me is the most important thing. Morrison was found guilty in 1970 of indecent exposure and public profanity and was fined $500 and sentenced to six months in jail. But he never did the time. He was appealing his conviction when he was found dead in a Paris bathtub in 1971 at age 27. The governor said he plans to ask Florida Cabinet members to support a pardon the next time they meet as the Clemency Board. Crist needs at least two of the three Cabinet members to vote with him. m ents conduct drills monthly t o insure that they know what t o do in hazardous situations, A ndrews said. We drill monthly, but this r eally the first time we have d one one without letting anyo ne know it was an actual d rill, Andrews said. The simulated gas for the d rill was Stargon, a mixture o f argon, nitrogen and carbon d ioxide, which is used in w elding of stainless steel. Avictim was placed s trategically so that the first r esponders could identify h im and conduct what A ndrews called a snatcha nd-go where suited fire f ighters with breathing appar atus retrieve the victim and g et them to a safe distance. They did everything by t he book, it was well execute d, Andrews said. Interim Director of Emergency Management Scott Canaday agreed with Andrewsassessment. The good thing was that no one knew this was a drill, and the situation looks authentic, said Canaday. We did well. The response time was good, and all the protocols were followed by the book. We did perfect and performed as we were trained, Canaday added. www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, November 19, 2010Page 7A LIMITED SPACE CALLTODAY! 5 DAYS a week$ 30 Get In Shape Learn Self Defense Improve Self Esteem Make Better GradesMARTIAL ARTS AMERICA471-2467Best After School Program in SebringFREEPICKUP from: Kindergarten Learning Center, Cracker Trail, Sun-N-Lakes, Woodlawn, Fred Wild, Memorial, Hill Gustat, Sebring Middle/High Located on Kenilworth Sebring*Some Restrictions Apply Life Care, Not Day Care for the aircraft near Old Bombing Range Road off of County Road 64 east of Avon Park, before finding the debris field at approximately 1:45 a.m. Reports identified the plane as a twin-engine Cessna 337 with one propeller in the front, and one in the rear.

Because the largest e xpense by far is the electric b ill, everyone agreed the best a pproach is to conserve. N ight games could be r escheduled for the day, for e xample. Most agreed that as m uch as 20 to 25 percent c ould be saved on the electric b ill. There was a willingness to p rovide sweat equity by d oing budgeted chores, the m oney could be shifted to a nother line. But the subject of fees trigg ered the most discussion, w ith concerns over the ability t o pay and general fairness. One sore spot for organi zed team members is having to help pay for the parks, while unorganized teams simply arrive and pay nothing for the benefits. There were concerns about teams which only play day games having to pay a portion of the light bill or smaller teams with fewer players paying the same amount as a larger club. No one on the committee was happy about having to tackle this contentious a problem. They were particularly upset at having to come up with more than $20,000 on such short notice. Weve been blindsided, said committee member Todd Moore. Up to now weve never been involved with money, said committee chairman Jon Million. The committee was also upset it did not have more information. Its hard to budget without having numbers, committee member Laura Tea said. The committee informally agreed to begin an electrical conservation program, lobby hard for recreation funding from the county including turning out people at county commission meetings and in the long run supporting a non ad valorem countywide recreation assessment, to be balanced with a equal reduction in the county ad valorem tax. By making a decision to not make a decision, as Million said, the committee effectively threw the issue back to the town council.

By CHRISTINE ARMARIO Associated PressMIAMI Anational educ ation assessment released T hursday shows that high s chool seniors have made s ome improvement in readi ng, but remain below the a chievement levels reached n early two decades ago. The National Assessment o f Educational Progress, r eferred to at the Nations R eport Card, tested 52,000 s tudents in reading and 4 9,000 in math across 1,670 s chool districts in 2009. Students scored an average o f 288 out of 500 points in r eading comprehension, two p oints above the 2005 score b ut still below the 1992 avera ge of 292. Thirty-eight perc ent of 12th grade students w ere classified as at or above t he proficient level, while 7 4 percent were considered at o r above basic. Todays report suggests t hat high school seniors a chievement in reading and m ath isnt rising fast enough to prepare them to succeed in college and careers, U.S. Education Secretary Arne Duncan said. Cornelia S. Orr, executive director of the National Assessment Governing Board, which oversees development tests, said she was encouraged by the fact reading scores had gone up in recent years. And wed like it to get back up to the level it once was, she said. The trouble advancing student reading skills extends across grade levels. Reading scores for fourth and eighth grade students in 2009 were only four points higher than in 1992. The No Child Left Behind law championed by President George W. Bush set a goal for every student to read and do math at their grade level by 2014, but the national assessment scores indicate students are still trailing significantly behind. In 2009, 33 percent of fourth grade and 32 percent of eighth grade students scored at the proficient level in reading. In a statement, Duncan noted that President Barack Obama set a goal for the United States to have the highest proportion of college graduates in the world by the end of the decade, and that in a survey that accompanied the reading and math test, 86 percent of seniors said they expect to graduate college. Theyll only succeed if we challenge and support them to raise their academic performance and offer them the financial support they need to pay for college, Duncan said. He said he is confident that goal can be reached with the efforts the administration currently has under way, including providing $40 million in Pell Grants, supporting states as they raise academic standards, and investing in efforts for states to create data systems to help track student performance. 12th grade students still below reading scores, study shows

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK Two of the Highlands County teams were at less than full strength coming into the Bill Jarrett Tip-Off Classic Tournament at Avon Park Tuesday night, as Sebring and Lake Placid are either without their football playing contingent, or trying to work them in. The Red Devils, meanwhile, looked in near midseason form and ready to make a run at their Final Four appearance of last season win an easy win over Clewiston in Tuesdays nightcap. Its what I expected, said Avon Park head coach Luther Clemons about the 75-41 win over the Tigers. We worked well, and we hit our shots. I am also impressed with the second unit, they really stepped up. Swingman Reggie Baker left the game early with a tweaked ankle, and Clemons said that there was no need to push him this early in the season. Reggie, Alonzo (Robertson), Avierre (Conner) and TK (Miller) are the core that returned this year, and they can make it happen, Clemons said. Robertson poured in 21 points, Baker 18 and Conner picked-up 14 in less than half of a games worth of play.Sebring shorthandedThe Blue Streaks still have five players unavailable due to Sebrings appearance in the Rotary Bowl Thursday night, leaving him with a patchwork lineup with a game group of freshman and sophomores having to log major minutes. And while the 57-26 loss to a powerful North Port squad wasnt necessarily fun to watch, head coach Princeton Harris saw the positives and had a wry smile as he looked ahead. Its always good to get that first one out of the way and I was happy with how our younger kids stepped up, he said. Ill be happier Monday when we get our football players back. Theyre all familiar with the system and we had them for a couple walk-throughs this week and it looked really good, Harris continued. Were going to get after it defensively and play an up tempo game. My teams are always going to run and I definitely see potential wh en we have everyone back.Lake Placid a work in progressThe Green Dragons h ad the luxury of having the ir football players back in t he fold, albeit for little mo re than one practice, headin g into Tuesdays match-up wi th a fast and strong Haines Ci ty Hornets squad. These are just practi ce games which will help us g et into shape, head coa ch David Veley said. Playing a larger, more athletic grou p like Haines City will he lp emphasize to my kids wh at urgency we need to come o ut and play with every night. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comThe Lady Green Dragons o f the pitch kept their early s eason prowess rolling with a n 8-0 win over Fort Meade T uesday night. Scoring virtually at will a gainst the Lady Miners, L ake Placid ended this one e arly on the mercy rule to m ove to 4-0 on the season a nd 1-0 in district play. As a show of their domin ance, with 24 goals on the s eason, the Lady Dragons a re averaging six goals per g ame, and have yet to be s cored upon. The Lake Placid boys, w hile not in as dominating f ashion, also brought home a win by topping Fort Meade 3-2 Tuesday night. The win brings the Dragons record to 2-1 h eading into Thursdays dist rict match-up with McKeel A cademy at Roger S carborough Memorial S tadium. Things didnt go quite so w ell for the Lake Placid g irls basketball team in their o pening week as they split t wo games. They fell to McKeel 522 8 Tuesday, but came up w ith a big, 46-28 win over C lewiston at home on M onday. The Lady Dragons of the h ardwood were on the road a t Mulberry Thursday night. Sebring girls soccer head c oach Paul Browns proclom ation that his team was on a roll after scoring their first g oal in last Thursdays loss, s eemed to be on the mark as h is Lady Blue Streaks took a 4 -0 win atr Mulberry M onday nigh to get their first win of the season a win they tried to build on Thursday night at Ridge. The Avon Park soccer programs continued their struggles as both the boys and the girls squads fell Tuesday to Mulberry and had them still looking for their first wins of the young season. The Devils were at Tenoroc Thursday in search of that initial victory while the girls hosted the Lady Titans.

Sports Talk goes Cross Country By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLast weekendsState Swiming and Diving Championships saw Highlands Countys representatives coming up a bit short but standing proud for their effort and achievements. Against stacked fields and even tougher judges, Lake Placids Edwin Velazquez and Sebrings Fred Cooper finished just out of scoring spots in their respective onemeter dive competitions. Velazquez totaled 232.45 points in the Class 1Aevent Thursday, finishing in 17th place, one spot out of making the top 16 scoring slots, behind Frostproofs Caleb Hardy. Coopers total of 206.15 had him finish just two spots back, at 18th, in the Class 2A event Friday. Teammate Brian Miller who qualified in the 100 Meter Breaststroke, came into Fridays prelims with a seed time of 1:05.08 and in fine fashion lowered it with a 1:03.70 mark in the race. But even that great effo rt left him a scant .29 secon ds out of advancing to the fina ls of the event. Perhaps not the finish es hoped for, but to ha ve reached that level, to ha ve met up with the best that t he state had to offer and fin d themselves right in the m ix of it, Velazquez, Cooper an d Miller did themselves proud.

Although work is still u nder way, in early N ovember, experts appointed b y the Florida Fish and W ildlife Conservation C ommission (FWC) began to r eview the information and d ata received on 61 state-liste d species against Floridas l isting criteria. The groups found that seve ral species may no longer be a t risk of extinction and may n ot need to be listed. We hope these prelimin ary findings will result in t he discovery that our conserv ation measures in the past d ecade have had measurable, b eneficial impacts on w ildlife in Florida, said Dr. E lsa Haubold, who heads up t he FWCs threateneds pecies listing process team. Ten currently listed mamm als have undergone the prel iminary status reviews, and i nitial results indicate that f ive species do not meet listi ng criteria. These species include the F lorida black bear, chipm unk, Florida mouse, H omosassa shrew and Shermans fox squirrel. Four of 21 currently statelisted birds also do not meet the criteria: limpkin, brown pelican, snowy egret and white ibis. The biological status review groups found that the following bird and mammal species met at least one of the listing criteria: American oystercatcher, least tern, little blue heron, reddish egret, roseate spoonbill, tricolored heron, osprey, southeastern American kestrel, white-crowned pigeon, Florida sandhill crane, Marians marsh wren, Scotts seaside sparrow, Wakulla seaside sparrow, Worthingtons marsh wren, black skimmer, snowy plover, burrowing owl, Everglades mink, Florida bonneted bat, Sanibel Island rice rat, Shermans short-tailed shrew and Big Cypress fox squirrel. Haubold cautions this is only the first step in the careful process of studying the status of these species. After all 61 species receive the scrutiny of the biological status review teams, composed of recognized experts and led by an FWC staff member, the reports will be sent for review to national and international experts for each wildlife species. However, before the Commission removes any species from the list, a management plan will have to be written and approved. One goal of the management plans is to ensure the species never reaches a high risk of extinction again, which would result in the need to re-list the species. The reviews in Florida are still under way for many of the remaining 61 species, and the preliminary findings will be available sometime in early December. The Commission could consider staff recommendations as early as April. This is a huge effort on the part of the teams, and the process is working very well, Haubold said. But this does not mean our work is done far from it. We still have lots to do to ensure no species ever goes extinct in Florida. One of the species reviewed was the Florida black bear, which is currently listed as threatened in Florida. The biological review group found black bear numbers have increased and the population is not in decline. However, before any change in status is made, several steps must be completed, including developing a management plan that ensures the species will continue to thrive in the future.

For t he third time in four years, G reg Odens knees have b etrayed him. The Portland Trail Blazers h astily called a press confere nce Wednesday night to a nnounce that Oden, the No. 1 pick in the 2007 draft, will m iss the season after he has m icrofracture surgery on his l eft knee. Odens rookie year was p ostponed because of similar s urgery on his right knee, and l ast season he broke his left k neecap early in December a nd again required surgery. He was still rehabbing w hen the latest problem was d iscovered. As you can expect, this y oung man is devastated a bout not having the opportun ity to play this season, being s o close to getting back on t he floor and just all of a sudd en, this situation comes up a nd its like, here we go again f or him, Portland coach N ate McMillan said. Odens latest surgery is s cheduled for Friday in Vail, C olo. The microfracture proced ure will repair damaged cart ilage that is not related to the k neecap injury, the team said. Blazers trainer Jay Jensen s aid the latest problem with O dens knee became appare nt about two weeks ago w hen he experienced some p ain and fluid in the joint. Soon thereafter, an MRI r evealed the damage. We sat there and it was l ike wed been kicked in the s tomach, Jensen said, choki ng up. It felt like hearing s omeone close to us had d ied. The 22-year-old Oden has o ften has been compared to f ormer Portland center Sam B owie, whom the Blazers f amously selected in front of M ichael Jordan in the 1984 d raft. The Blazers picked Oden i nstead of Kevin Durant, who w ent to the Oklahoma City f ranchise and has blossomed i nto one of the NBAs best players. Another Portland big man, Bill Walton, was selected by the Blazers with the No. 1 pick in the 1974 draft, but he was dogged by a broken nose, foot, wrist and leg over his first two seasons before helping the team to the NBA championship in 1977. Oden has seemingly been cursed since shortly before his rookie season, when trouble in his right knee prompted surgery the first time. He showed promise the next season when he played in 61 games, averaging 8.9 points and seven rebounds. But he really began to blossom last season when he became a starter and was averaging 11.7 points, 8.8 rebounds and 2.4 blocks in that role. Then he was hurt in a game against Houston, crashing to the floor with his kneecap visibly contorted. Oden had just started easing into practices when the latest knee issue was discovered. He has played in only 82 games during his NBA career, missing 176. Jensen said it was unclear what caused the latest damage. The Blazers announced last month they would not offer Oden a contract extension. He was the first No. 1 pick since Kwame Brown not to get one at the end of his rookie contract. Oden will be a restricted free agent next summer and Portland will be able to match any offers for him. Portlands problems at center are not limited to Oden. For the past several years the Blazers have relied on veteran Joel Przybilla, but he also was injured last December and required knee surgery. The Blazers have since started veteran forward Marcus Camby in the middle. At the start of this season, Jeff Pendergraph, who was backing up Camby, injured his knee and required seasonending surgery. The Blazers signed sixyear veteran Fabricio Oberto, but he retired from the NBA just five games into the season because of a preexisting heart condition. The good news for the Blazers is that Przybilla already has returned to practice and has said he expects to be back by Thanksgiving.

Special to the News-SunSEBRING Anyone who h as ever been on a diet during t he holidays knows the tempt ations that can break the s trongest will: traditional f amily desserts eagerly o ffered by relatives, cakes and c ookies in the office break r oom and festival meals with f riends. For the nearly 24 million A mericans living with diab etes, managing the disease d uring the holidays can pose d ifficult challenges. It really boils down to m aking good choices about w hat to eat and how to a pproach seasonal events, s ays Katherine J. Rowland, c hief clinical officer for N ational Healing Corporation w hich partners with hospitals a round the nation to treat c hronic wounds often related t o the affects of diabetes. Highlands Regional Wound C enter, a National Healing W ound Center, offers diabeti cs these holiday tips for e njoying the season without p utting ones health at risk: Keep to your blood gluc ose monitoring schedule and monitor more frequently if you find you are eating more often or at different times of the day. American Diabetes Association guidelines include several sweeteners that can be used in holiday baking including table sugar, honey, molasses and brown sugar. Tinker with favorite recipes to reduce the amounts of sugar required or make other substitutions such as low fat or non-fat milk for whole milk. When dining out with friends and family, try to eat at your normal meal time. If the reservation is for later, eat a fruit or starch serving from the meal you are delaying at the normal time. Whenever possible, choose to bring a dish to the party rather than a hostess gift or a bottle of wine. That way you can be sure of at least one healthy item. Guidelines suggest that men can consume two drinks a day and women one drink as long as your diabetes is under control, you know how alcohol affects you and your health provider agrees that your health condition will not be made worse by moderate alcohol use. Focus on activities other than food. Enjoy the season with friends and family at a holiday-themed movie or cultural event. The Internet and libraries offer countless suggestions for holiday treats developed for people with diabetes. Look to see if there is a recipe that is equivalent to one of your familys traditional holiday meals or start a new tradition of healthier eating. Dont feel deprived during the holidays. You may need to exercise more, increase your insulin or eat less of other foods but you can enjoy the holidays to the fullest.

Is i t OK to ask the pharmacist for help? I ve tried at times, but they are always b usy and I have to wait. P.R. New York Answer: Absolutely! Pharmacists a re trained to be drug information spec ialists, so we can save you time, m oney and perhaps your life (Im t hinking about catching a deadly i nteraction). You should make your p harmacist your best friend. Show up w ith a mocha latte, you wont wait as l ong. Since Ive been a pharmacist for 22 y ears, I know consumers have to wait t o get attention but thats because the p harmacist is backed up checking pres criptions for accuracy, on the phone d iscussing interactions or talking to a p hysician or nurse. Often, staff is s lim. We have your best interest at h eart, so please be patient. Here are t he reasons we are worth the wait: We can help you decide which o ver-the-counter medications help y our symptoms. Pharmacists are not d octors, but for example, based upon y our cough (wet or dry/hacking), we w ill help you choose an expectorant o r a cough suppressant. We know w hat kind of bandage you need for your sores, which salve for your skin rash, which lice products are convenient, and which blood sugar gadgets are accurate. We can field virtually any question you have about prescription drugs. We are like walking encyclopedias and if we dont know the answer off the top of our head, we have 4-inch references to dig into. Go ahead, bring it on. We know that allergy meds cause dry mouth and blurry vision, iron supplements will make your poop greenish-black (sorry if you got a visual on that), and how certain pain-relievers cause constipation. We know that stimulant laxatives are addictive! Didnt know that? Then its time to make your pharmacist your best friend. We and our hard-working pharmacy technicians are there to keep you safe. We can find lower-cost options for you, as well as OTC equivalent medications. We know which meds come in generic and which dont... and when its best to stick with the brand. We can help you stay compliant if you really need your medicine but its hard to stomach. For example, we might advise taking narcotic pain relievers with food to avoid nausea or sleep aids on an empty stomach because they work faster. Want to eat grapefruit, or dairy, but dont know if it interacts? Pharmacists are your goto guy for these questions. Your regular pharmacist keeps a record of your drug profile on computer making it easy to screen for drug interactions. Our services are free and best of all, some pharmacies are open 24 hours a day, allowing the public access anytime. All you have to do is ask.Did You Know? Cooking with almond flour causes a lower blood sugar spike (if any) and can help stabilize blood sugar.

This information is not intended to treat, diagnose or cure your condition. How to stay safe at the pharmacy Dear Pharmacist Suzy Cohen Special to the News-SunTALLAHASSEE With Thanksgiving just days away, Florida Agriculture and Consumer Services Commissioner Charles H. Bronson reminds state residents to follow a few food safety tips to avoid a holiday celebration resulting in cases of food-borne illness. Everybody enjoys holiday meals, and with a little care, nothing will mar the pleasure of the celebration, Bronson said. But food safety measures are particularly important, especially with the variety of foods being served, the number of helpers in the kitchen and the fact that food is often left out for long periods of time after being served. Bronson offered these food safety tips: Clean and sanitize cooking equipment. Wash your hands thoroughly with soap and warm water before preparing food and after contact with raw meat, poultry, seafood and eggs. Keep raw foods away from cooked foods to avoid cross-contamination, and make sure that raw meat juices never come in contact with salads and vegetables. Defrost the turkey in the refrigerator, or if time is short, it can be defrosted under cold running water in a matter of hours. Nev er defrost the bird at room tem perature as bacteria can ra pidly grow on raw meat at room temperature. Keep cold foods co ld and hot foods hot, especial ly when serving buffet styl e. Buffet servings should be kept small and replenish ed often. State and federal foo d safety officials stress that t he turkey should be cooked to an internal temperature of at least 165 degrees, and a foo d thermometer should be us ed to verify the temperatur e. While many people coo k stuffing inside the bird, of ficials suggest that it be cooked in a separate p an because there is no guarant ee that the stuffing will rea ch 165 degrees at the same tim e as the turkey. Carefully store lef tovers. They should be refri gerated promptly and shou ld sit out no more than tw o hours after coming out of t he oven. Slice the turkey befo re refrigerating as who le turkeys do not store safely in the refrigerator. Leftove rs should be put in shallow co ntainers to speed up the coo ling process and prevent ba cterial growth. Visit http://www.florid aagriculture.com/consumers /f oodsafety_winter.htm. Adhere to food safety measures this holiday season, Bronson urges Special to the News-SunORLANDO Dental H ygiene and Dental A ssisting students from S outh Florida Community C ollege recently participate d in Special Smiles, a prog ram that provides Special O lympics athletes with dent al hygiene education, duri ng the Florida Special O lympics held in Orlando. SFCCs dental education s tudents instructed the athl etes on the proper technique f or brushing and flossing a nd informed them on how t o find a dentist in the area t hey live. Many people dont u nderstand dental hygiene or h ow to brush and floss corr ectly, said Cristal Lopez, s econd-year dental hygiene s tudent. It makes me feel g ood to educate people in w ays that keep them healthy, a nd this group of people in p articular was very intereste d and excited about learni ng. Their job is to educate o thers on proper dental h ygiene, said Bob S conyers, professor of D ental Assisting. Opportunities like these a llow them to provide that s ervice out in the communit y. Though the Special Smiles program is intended to educate others, SFCCs dental students found it to be an educational experience for them as well. It was a great learning experience, said dental assisting student Jodi McWaters. We realized that everybody learns differently, and we had to be creative with some of the techniques we taught the athletes. It helped me become comfortable with thinking outside of the box. I learned how to have patience with special needs patients, said Norman Swaby, second-year dental hygiene student. Even though they had different needs and learned in different ways, I found that if I was patient enough eventually they understood. We all have our differences, but thats what makes us all the same.

S pecial to the News-SunWhile the holiday season i s a time for merriment, g oodwill and cheer, its also a time when accidents are at t heir peak. Physicians at H ighlands Medical Group a re keenly aware of the risk f actors associated with the h olidays and have valuable a dvice to offer on ways to h elp minimize the hazards t hat so often contribute to i njuries at this time of the y ear. Decorating safety While lights and decorat ions certainly make the holi days feel more festive, they a re often the culprits for a w ide range of injuries. A ccording to a report by the U .S. Consumer Product S afety Commission, hospital e mergency rooms treat more t han 12,500 people each year f or falls, cuts, shocks, and b urns caused by decorating m ishaps. Ladder safety is critically i mportant when it comes to h anging lights and decorat ions, says Dr. Donald W are, Family Practice, H ighlands Medical Group Many falls and injuries can b e prevented by taking extra p recautions before climbing u p a ladder. To minimize decorating a ccidents, safety experts s uggest only using ladders in d aylight, and ensuring that t he legs are firmly on the g round before climbing onto i t. Also, use the Home S afety Councils 4-1 rule: F or each four feet you plan t o climb, move the base of t he ladder out one foot. D ont stand on the top step a nd always keep both feet on t he ladder-never put one foot o n a rung and the other foot o n a different surface. If youre decorating i ndoors and need to reach a h igh spot, always use a sturd y stepladder rather than s tanding on a chair or other p iece of furniture. Also, be s ure to unplug lights and o ther electrical decorations w hile you are installing t hem. Holiday fire hazards According to the Centers f or Disease Control and P revention, Christmas trees a ccount for the greatest perc entage of fire-related holid ay deaths each year. If you purchase an artific ial tree, make sure it is l abeled fire resistant. With a live tree, find the freshest o ne possible and tap it on t he ground to ensure that m ost of the needles remain i ntact. Keep live trees well w atered and place them a s afe distance away from r adiators, fireplaces or h eaters. Only use lights that have b een tested by a reputable t esting lab-look for the U nderwriters Laboratory ( UL) seal of approval. C arefully check all lights to e nsure there are no frayed w ires, cracked sockets or l oose connections. Never place lighted cand les on or near the tree, w reaths, garlands, curtains, o r where young children can r each them, and dont leave c andles burning in unattende d rooms. Battery operated c andles are a safe alternative t o flame candles. They can b e safely used in any area of t he house and dont pose a fire risk. Although Christmas trees cause the most fire-related deaths, the top cause of home fires over the holiday season, according to the U.S. Fire Administration, is from cooking. With so many things vying for your attention over the holidays, its easy to get distracted while in the kitchen, says Dr Ware, However, turning away from a boiling pot or leaving a stovetop item unattended is extremely dangerous and can cause a fire in no time. Playing it safe with toys In 2008, an estimated 235,000 toy-related injuries were treated in hospital emergency rooms in the United States, according to a report by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. While government regulations help to keep toys safe for children, you still have to be on your guard, says Dr. Ware Atoy thats safe for an older child, like a board game with small pieces or a model car with removable parts, can be very dangerous for a younger child who can easily choke on those small pieces. According to Dr. Ware, a good way to determine if an object is a choking hazard is the toilet roll tube test. If a toy is small enough to fit through a toilet roll tube, then it is small enough to be swallowed and to lodge in a childs throat. Safety experts recommend reading the instructions for toys and games carefully, inspecting them for loose parts and sharp edges, and storing any pieces that arent child-friendly out of reach. And its not only toys that are choking hazards. Colorful holiday decorations are also very appealing to young children, while plastic wrapping can pose a suffocation risk. To keep accidents at bay, you should discard wrappers, ribbons, bows and packaging materials immediately after opening gifts. With older childrens gifts such as bicycles, skateboards or in-line skates, make sure your child knows the risks involved with their new gift and that they have the skill and coordination necessary to safely operate it. Ensure that they wear a helmet and any other safety gear before putting their gift to the test, and bear in mind that the holidays require more vigilance than usual as children can get overexcited and take greater risks with their new toys.

Perhaps there are s ome skeletons in your close t that you have yet to recko n with. It could be some i njustice by someone that y ou refuse to forgive. Maybe t here is some sin that you h ave attempted to cover, but t he guilt still plagues you. Y our past haunts you and its y our secret. In some cases, e ven your dearest friends a nd nearest family do not e ven know about it. These skeletons are holdi ng you back from truly livi ng. God knows what is in y our closet. He knows what has happened in your past and what you will not let go of. He knows what you are going through that no one else knows about. He sees what is going on behind closed doors. He also sees the pure in heart, and those who silently do what is right when know one else notices. He knows your righteous desires and honest motives. The eyes of God are continually beholding both the evil and the good. What are you doing in secret? In the secret life of King David, he harbored the sin of lust for another mans wife. He took her for himself and had a child out of wedlock. He tried to keep it a secret and even attempted to cover his sin by murder. But what he did in secret, his son Absalom did openly on the roof top for all of Israel to see. We learn that private sin becomes public scandal. God says, Be sure your sin will find you out. But not everything in secret has to be bad. In fact, the most sacred times of Gods people are experienced in private. Jesus taught that giving, prayer, and fasting are acts of righteousness that must be done in secret. It doesnt matter who else notices the time we spend in prayer because it is a closet matter. However, this kind of secret life does have direct implications on the effectiveness of public ministry. God the Father promises a public reward for private prayer. Remember that the quality and content of your secret life will have public consequences. Do you have secret thoughts and desires that are evil and incriminating? The truth will come out in your words and actions. The result of secret sin is spiritual poverty. However, when you develop a Christ-like secret life of prayer, you will possess certain power for living and victory in the Christian life.

I used to be one of t hem. Such people often dont realize they a re being chronically negative. They dont t hink about how they sound to those around t hem, or the effect they have on others. If you are one of those people who finds it e asier to complain than to find something g ood in life, think about how you sound to t hose around you. Think about your view of l ife. Are you happy? Probably not. If you c onsider yourself a happy person, make it a p oint to be a blessing to your family and f riends. Ask yourself how you can exhibit y our happiness. If everyone you love seems t o not enjoy being around you, it may be b ecause you are a chronic complainer. Negativity will do one of two things: it w ill drive people away from you or it will m ake someone want to help you solve the p roblem youre complaining about. Most c omplainers dont want either of those r esponses. They just want someone to listen a nd they dont think they have anything w orth saying if they arent complaining. The good news is God always listens. He d oesnt like constant complaining but He a nd He alone has the power to change the c ircumstances. He has the power to change our attitude. He has the power to lift our spirits and find joy in life. Without Him permanent change is impossible. Jesus promised us an abundant life. Can you see your children happy? Can you see yourself happy? Dare to imagine it. Dare to ask God to save you from your sin and unhappiness. Dare to let Him take control of your life. Though there will still be some problems, He will help you through them and make you a stronger, better person in the process. You wont be sorry! John 10:9-10 says, I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. This is talking about Jesus being the only way to heaven, and His purpose in saving us from hell. Aleta Kay can be reached at themarriagementor@yahoo.com Are you happy being miserable?

Avon Park453-CART (2278) DearAbby: Im a 33-year-old male who has finally found the love of my life. My girlfriend and I have been together for three years. Needless to say, an engagement is right around the corner. I have a sister who has struggled her entire life dating the wrong men. Shes beautiful inside and out. She called me last night crying, asking me why men always cheat on her. Most people would assume that the use of the word always is an exaggeration. I would have to say that 90 percent of her boyfriends, have indeed, cheated on her one way or another whether it was in high school, or when she dated a race car driver or, more recently, an acquaintance of mine. What can I say to reassure her that there are some good guys left in this world who wont cheat? Looking For Answers For Sis DearLooking For Answers: Tell your sister that there are men with character who take relationships seriously. They may not be as glamorous as a race car driver, or flashy or glib, but they have more important qualities to offer. Point out that when one man after another is unfaithful, it can damage a womans self-esteem. And when that happens it can make her insecure and willing to suspend her better judgment out of fear that shell be alone. Explain that women with high self-esteem receive more respect because they wont settle for less, and that they dont jump into relationships they wait for a man to prove himself. Men value more highly what they have to work for. Perhaps that will help to set her straight. DearAbby: I have lived an amazing life surrounded by family, friends and loved ones. My parents and maternal grandparents are still active in my daily life. Because I am so close to all of them Im scared, worried and sometimes downright depressed at the thought of losing any of them. I know in the circle of life, death should be accepted as the next great adven ture, but I dont know if I can ha ndle that. Im ask ing for advice on how to handle these events now I do not have fam ily near me but a n amazing circle o f friends for support. I just know that Im going to sl ip into a world of sadness th at Im afraid I wont come out of. My problems may seem minor in light of todays issues, but I do need guidance. Selfish in Las Veg as DearSelfish: The concerns you are feeling are not selfish. They are no rmal, if somewhat premature. You are fortunate to have your parents and grandparents in your life if only through phone calls and e-mails. You are also lucky to have suppor tive friends nearby. The hardest part of grieving the loss of a love d one is regret about words that were never said. So tell your parents and grandparents often how much you love and appre ciate them. See them whe n you can. And continue to be the kind of person of whom they can be proud, because when they are gone, YOU will be their legacy.

Man seeks words of comfort for sister unlucky in love DIVERSIONS Dear Abby By CHRISTYLEMIRE APMovie CriticFear and loathing, doom a nd gloom permeate nearly e very minute of Harry P otter and the Deathly H allows: Part 1, the beginn ing of the end of the behem oth boy-wizard series. This seventh film in the f ranchise, directed once a gain by David Yates (who p reviously helmed parts five a nd six, Harry Potter and the O rder of the Phoenix and Harry Potter and the HalfB lood Prince), begins with n early suffocating tension, as H arry (Daniel Radcliffe) f inds himself face-to-face w ith his destiny: being the t arget of the evil Lord V oldemorts deadly wrath. F riends and allies will have t o band together to protect h im; some of them wont m ake it out alive. Finally, the weight of H arrys past and the frighteni ng unknown of his future, as d etailed so thoroughly and v ividly in J.K. Rowlings b eloved books, are about to c ollide. Yatesfilm is gorgeously b leak, with sprawling, endo f-the-Earth shots of foreb oding mountains and lonely b eaches from Oscar-nominate d cinematographer Eduardo S erra (Girl With a Pearl E arring) that reflect the c haractersmoods. Serra has n ever shot a Harry Potter m ovie before and brings a t otally different kind of artf ulness to the aesthetics w hile still remaining consist ent with this familiar world. ( Part 1 is in 2-D because, t hankfully, Warner Bros. c hose not to rush the 3-D c onversion process; Part 2 w ill be in 3-D when it hits t heaters in July.) The films have grown d arker in tone and theme, and g iven this heightened emotional challenge, the three young stars once again rise to it. Having spent half their lives in these characters, their interactions with one another seem more comfortable and believable than ever. Radcliffe has been solid for a while now, and Emma Watson as Hermione Granger has grown into an engaging young woman, but Rupert Grint as Ron Weasley gives his most confident performance yet. The supporting cast, as always, is mind-bogglingly star-studded, led by Ralph Fiennes as the fearsome Voldemort and Alan Rickman as the duplicitous Professor Snape, and including Helena Bonham Carter, Imelda Staunton, Julie Walters and newcomer Bill Nighy. Its a welcome sight to see the return of larger-than-life character actors like Robbie Coltrane as the lovable lug Hagrid and Brendan Gleeson as the irreverent Mad-Eye Moody; on the other end of the spectrum is Toby Jones, returning as the voice of the diminutive and heroic house elf Dobby. But because Part 1 sets up the final showdown in Part 2 which Yates also directed theres lots of exposition in Steve Kloves script, lots of characters and plot lines introduced and reintroduced from films past. While its thrilling off the top, it repeatedly sags in the middle before ultimately picking up at the cliffhanger climax. Voldemort is on the hunt for Harry, and has sent his minions to capture him alive so that he can kill him himself. Meanwhile, Harry, Hermione and Ron must track down and destroy the Horcruxes scattered containers that hold pieces of Voldemorts soul, which are crucial to Harrys survival. But this pursuit is more dangerous than ever, since Voldemorts Death Eaters have taken over the Ministry of Magic, leaving Harry with less protection. And as we know from the previous film, the regal and wise Hogwarts headmaster Albus Dumbledore (Michael Gambon, in brief flashbacks) isnt around to help him, either. The visually striking sequence in which Harry and his pals assume fake identities to enter the ministry which is hidden inside the sewers and looks like something out of the Third Reich is dazzling and intimidating at once. Humor is hard to find here, as youd expect in a film with the words Deathly Hallows in the title, but there are a few laughs to be had at the absurdity of the situation in which Harry, Hermione and Ron find themselves. (Earlier in the film, Rons twin brothers also provide some of their patented teasing banter.) But the imaginative energy the students enjoy at Hogwarts is gone here part one of Deathly Hallows never once sets foot in the schools stately corridors and instead, our trio is very much thrown into the real world. Temporarily stuck in London, they find themselves in a car chase and a shootout (albeit with wands), busy streets and dark alleyways. Danger lurks at every turn, and here, Yates mixes in some hand-held camerawork to provide a more intimate glimpse of their fear. Theyre more grown-up than ever now that theyre on the verge of leaving school, and since theyre on the road searching for Horcruxes (and trying to keep Harry alive), they have plenty of time to explore their blossoming feelings toward each other. These are the sections that sap the film of its energy, but by the time Part 1 ends, youll be anxious to see what tricks Harry has up his sleeve once hes forced to face the ultimate evil.

LIVING 12B PAGE News-Sun Friday, November 19, 2010 November 2002 Chris ColumbusHarry is lonely and miserable over the summer with the Dursleys who banish him to his room. Dobby, a house elf, warns Harry against returning to Hogwarts. Harry ignores Dobbys warnings and tricks and returns to school with Ron in a flying car. The trio discover a giant snake called a Basilisk is stalking the castle and attacking students. Rons younger sister, Ginny (Bonnie Wright) is taken by the Basilisk and the new (D.A.D.A.)professor, Gilderoy Lockhart, is no help. The vain professor is ridiculously inept, so Ron, Hermione and Harry must find the Chamber of Secrets to rescue Ginny themselves. Gilderoy LockhartThe narcissistic wizarding celebrity is played by Kenneth Branagh. Age 13 Age 12 Age 14 DobbyBYMERRIELEININGER, MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNEIn many ways, fans can relate to Harry Potter. He had to wait out the summer with the inhospitable Dursleys, until that bright day when he could get on the Hogwarts Express and be with friends again. Likewise, fans have had to wait impatiently between movie releases to be able to step into a dark theater and once again be immersed in that charming wizarding world. But now, with the first part of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, coming to screens on Nov. 19, Harry, Ron and Hermione wont be returning to Hogwarts. Everything has changed for them, and it will for the seriesfans, too. Although part two doesnt apparate into theaters until July, its time to come to terms with the end of Harry Potter. And The Deathly Hallows is not a light-hearted romp. Despite a few moments that will put smiles on our faces the wedding of Bill Weasley and Fleur Delacour, and the Seven Harrys scene, where six others take Polyjuice Potion to appear as Harry Potter our beloved trio, who grew up before our eyes, will be on the run, so its important to be up to speed on the story. Before the darkness descends, lets take a look back at the movies weve loved for nearly the past decade. To read a review of the movie, turn to page 11B.November 2001 Chris Columbus Home Alone Quirinus Quirrell Played by Ian Hart, Quirrell is perpetually nervous and wears a purple turban to hide his dark secret.

But the wrongly convicted Sirius Black (Gary Oldman), who is accused of being loyal to Voldemort, is Harrys godfather. Students on the Hogwarts Express have a run-in with the Dementors, sinister creatures that drain the happiness of anyone nearby. The encounter leaves Harry unconscious, but he is rescued by the new D.A.D.Ateacher, Remus Lupin (David Thewlis). Lupin helps Harry develop a Patronus, an apparition to fend off the Dementors. Despite his kindly ways, Lupin has a dark secret that almost gets Harry and his friends killed. Harry meets Sirius in the Shrieking Shack where they discover Rons pet rat is really Peter Pettigrew (aka Wormtail), the real betrayer and Death Eater. The discovery can clear Siriuss name. Of note: Actor Richard Harris, who portrayed Hogwarts headmaster, Professor Dumbledore in the films, died of Hodgkins Disease at the age of 72, and was replaced by Michael Gambon for the remaining films. Remus Lupin (aka Moony)Played by David Thewlis, this instructor transforms into a vicious werewolf.

One student from each school is chosen by the Goblet of Fire to compete, but the cup tosses out a fourth name Harry Potter. Hogwarts other champion is Cedric Diggory (played by future Twilight vampire Robert Pattinson). Meanwhile, fears are heightened as Voldemorts (Ralph Fiennes) lackeys, the Death Eaters, are making themselves known; and more trouble is stirred up by a reporter with a poison pen, Rita Skeeter (Miranda Richardson). In addition, the new D.A.D.A. teacher, Mad-Eye Moody, is being impersonated by the evil Barty Crouch Jr. Mad-Eye MoodyBrendan Gleeson plays the famous auror, someone who pursues and apprehends dark wizards. Age 16 Age 15 Age 17 July 2007 David Yates Control changes hands for the last time.Harry, Ron and Hermione are made aware of The Order of the Phoenix, who fought against Voldemort 14 years earlier during the First Wizarding War. The trio learn Snape is a double agent although its unclear which side holds his true loyalty. The Order must work outside the Ministry of Magic, which refuses to believe Voldemort has returned, and has installed the sadistic Delores Umbridge as D.A.D.Ateacher, high inquisitor, and eventually, headmistress. Agroup of Hogwarts students rebel against Umbridge by forming Dumbledores Army (D.A.), training in secret to learn magical defensive techniques. Six D.A. members, including Harry, use their skills against Death Eaters while trying to rescue Sirius at the Ministrys Department of Mysteries. Its there the demented Bellatrix Lestrange (Helena Bonham Carter) gleefully kills Sirius. Dolores UmbridgeImelda Staunton plays the cruel and abusive teacher who does very little teaching. Age 17 Age 16 Age 18 July 2009 David YatesSeverus Snape finally wins the position of Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher, and although he remains in Dumbledores good graces, he has made an unbreakable vow with Dracos mother. This vow forces Snape to protect Draco who is forced to carry out a task from Voldemort: To kill Dumbledore. After Harry finds out that Voldemort has split his soul into seven pieces, Dumbledore and Harry leave Hogwarts to retrieve a Horcrux, a locket that contains one of the pieces, but Dumbledore must drink a poison in order to retrieve it. Back at Hogwarts, a weakened Dumbledore encounters Draco, but he falters, and Snape takes over, killing the headmaster himself in order to save the boy. Severus Snape Alan Rickman plays the complex Potions teacher turned D.A.D.A. teacher. Age 19 Age 18 Age 20 Part 1: Nov. 19 Part 2: Scheduled to be released July 2011 David Yates (Spoiler alert!) In it, Harry, Ron and Hermione take to the road to hide from the Death Eaters, who have now taken over the reins at the Ministry, and made Snape headmaster of Hogwarts. While continuing Dumbledores work searching for the Horcruxes, they discover the tale of the Deathly Hallows: three objects (the Elder Wand, the Resurrection Stone and the Cloak of Invisibility) supposedly created by Death, which would make Voldemort invincible. The trio slowly make some headway, but they are isolated from their friends and family, and the stress begins to divide them. They are soon captured by the Death Eaters, and Dobby is killed by Bellatrix. The film reportedly ends with Voldemort taking the Elder Wand from Dumbledores grave. In the final film, Harry, Hermione and Ron return to Hogwarts when they learn a Horcrux is hidden there. Voldemort and the Death Eaters descend on Hogwarts, and the Battle of Hogwarts begins. Voldemort kills Snape, thinking it will be the only way to become the master of the Elder Wand. Before he dies, Snape reveals his motivation for all his actions has always been to protect Harry, the son of his childhood love, Lily Potter. Harry also learns that he, himself, is the final Horcrux, and must allow himself to be killed in order to defeat Voldemort.

He learns they were killed by an evil wizard named Voldemort when he was an infant a fact hidden from him by his awful relatives, the Dursleys. Harry enters Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, and finds he is something of a legend known as The Boy Who Lived because he survived Voldemorts attack which left him with a lightning-shaped scar on his forehead. Harry becomes friends with Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger. Although he is a good student and a star Quidditch player, hes treated with derision by Potions Professor Severus Snape (Alan Rickman) and an arrogant student Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton). Harry, Ron and Hermione determine the missing Sorcerers Stone a magical object that extends life must be the item Fluffy, a three-headed dog, is guarding. Harry is suspicious of Snapes intentions regarding the stone after witnessing him threaten the meekDefense Against the Dark Arts (D.A.D.A.)Professor Quirinus Quirrell. Harry must get the stone before Voldemort or his followers, the Death Eaters.
