After a settlement was reached between the city of Sebring and the American Southern Insurance Company regarding the $350,000 bond, city attorney Bob Swaine recommended that only net proceeds (after legal, engineering, and other various fees) of up to $240,000 be used to complete the water line extension into Phases I and II of the Lake Regency Woods Subdivision. Members of the Lake Regency Woods Homeowners Association were present at the meeting to discuss their input in the project. During previous council meetings, the homeowners association members expressed interest in submitting their own solution to the problem regarding the water lines. Members Ron Handley, Gary Blackman and Stephanie Toothaker presented the council with their own finding, costs and ideas regarding the construction of lines, water, roads an infrastructure to the area. Homeowner association members were unhappy with that figure asking the council to reconsider and spend the entire bond amount on the development of the property.

The median income of Floridians dropped by more than 7 percent from almost $48,000 in 2007 to more than $44,000 last year. Only Nevada had a bigger drop in income, 7.3 percent. But Nevada residents were earning more than Floridians to begin with $55,000 in 2007 and $51,000 in 2010. Florida has one of the nations highest unemployment rates, 10.7 percent in August, and the state was at the epicenter of the housing boom and bust. Those two factors contributed to the disappearing income as Floridians lost wages as well as the ability to take out home equity loans or earn income from buying or selling investment properties, said University of Central Florida economist Sean Snaith. People were making money flipping, buying and selling real estate, so that was bolstering income, Snaith said. People who werent involved with that still saw their home equity rise and they were able to tap into that money and spend more. Now those sources have dried up. Nationally, the median household income declined by about 1.3 percent. It went from $50,700 in 2007 to just over $50,000 last year.

The first baccalaureate degree that SFCC plans to offer isa Bachelor of Arts and Science in Supervision and Management ( BAS-SM). College officials will soon start looking for faculty for the degree program, which is expected to begin next fall with an expected class of 40 students. The BAS-SM is a broad-based degree that brings additional career skills to a number of our students who have completed workforce degrees, such as business administration, accounting, computer science, criminal justice, applied health, and nursing, said Dr. Leana Revell, the collegesv ice president for educational and student services.

C M Y K By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Council members discussed the f uture purchase of a side loader garbage truck with the Solid Waste Department Tuesday evening. Sebrings Solid Waste Departmenth ead, Ernest Johnson, expressed a need for a second side loader truck to be purchased and has spent the last month searching for ther ight equipment. The staff recommended a warding a contract to Waste Equipment & Parts LLC afterJ ohnson sent his most qualified workers one of which is Brian Bradley, who has worked in the solid waste department for over 20 years to other cities to gain insight on the best equipment for Sebring. They (the solid waste staff) have done a very goodj ob on their homework. They have not parted way one way or the other, said Dave Lance, president of Waste Equipment and Parts. Johnson stated that a representative from RDK visited the Solid Waste Department about a week ago for a matter unrelated to the side loader purchase. The RDK representative eventually asked to present a truck to the Solid Waste Department and city council for purchase consideration. The truck that we have from them (RDK that we bought a couple years ago, we still having problems with the air conditioner. The truck from Waste E quipment, we feel that its a better truck, we got better s ervice with them and we think the city will be betters erviced by it, said Johnson. The RDK representative continued his argument that their truck was better. The total amount for the W aste Equipment truck is $226,340. After Lance stated that Florida had only four or five companies that manufacturea nd sell garbage trucks, city administrator Scott Noethlich recommended that the council send out RFP(requests f or proposals) to each of the companies. Im just looking for d irection. We can put this out to bid, no problem, Noethlich said. The reality is we have vendors, a vendor, whoa dmitted he has been a vendor to the city for years who wasnt approached (about the purchase). What worries me the m ost is that access wasnt given to an existing vendor s aid Councilman John Clark. Clark stated that RFPs s hould have been given out to the four or five vendors in the first place. To avoid further discussion between the two ven-d ors present, Clark made a motion to table the agenda item until RFPs were sent out. Council members Scott S tanley, John Clark and Andrew Fells voted unanimously to table the item.

S he vividly remembers when, as a young child, she fell off her bike whiler iding down a steep hill near the family home in Guttenberg, Iowa.K athleen landed face-first on the pavement, breaking h er glasses and cutting her face. As she lay on the g round sobbing, her oldest brother, future U.S. A rmy Cpl. Stephen Shannon, took her in his arms. Stephen ran down the hill, picked me up, andw alked me home, Kathleen, now 23, told t he Unknown Soldiers. He put me on the couch, got an ice pack and tend-e d to me until our mom got home. W hile Stephen was a mischievous child who sometimes teased his sibl ings, he would lay his life down for them in a heartbeat. Thats one of those memories I have of himr eally caring for me, Kathleen continued. He never wanted me to get hurt. As a 21-year-old A merican soldier deployed in Iraq, Cpl. S hannon still didnt want to see anyone othert han the enemy get hurt. He joined the Army Reserve in a time of war to protect the lives of others and find more purposei n his own.

The state has relied on a hurricane fund ever since H urricane Andrew devastated South Florida nearly 20 years ago. Insurers get help to pay homeowners if a hurricane or a series of hurricanes r esults in widespread damages. But Jack Nicholson, the chief operating officer of the fund, told state legislators onW ednesday that the fund is on shaky ground. He said o ngoing turmoil in the world f inancial markets is raising questions about whether the f und could borrow enough money to help insurers after a hurricane. T his year the fund is providing $18.5 billion worth of c overage, and while it has more than $7 billion worth of cash on hand, it would still n eed to borrow another $11 billion. I think we are dangerously overexposed considering the current reality of the mar-k etplace, Nicholson said. ... It scares me to death where we are. Nicholson used the warnings as part of a pitch to statel awmakers to scale back the size of the Florida Hurricane C atastrophe Fund. That w ould likely cause insurance premiums to rise but it has t he backing of many key Republicans, including Gov. Rick Scott. E very insurer currently in Florida is required to purc hase coverage from the Cat Fund as it also called. The fund provides a backstop to i nsurers at a rate that is generally cheaper than reinsurance sold by private companies. Nicholson estimated that t his low-cost option probably results in insurance premiums being about 25 percent cheaper. If a storm causes enough d amages the insurer can ask for reimbursements from the f und. Hurricane fund chief warns that state is in danger TALLAHASSEE (AP The Florida Supreme Court says the state, not counties, must pay for new legalo ffices that help represent indigent defendants. The justices unanimously ruled on Thursday that a 2007 law creating theo ffices unconstitutionally passed overhead expenses to F loridas 67 counties. They cited their 2008 ruling that upheld the law on other grounds. In that case, the justices r uled Criminal Conflict and Civil Regional Counsel Offices are not the same as public defenders. Instead, they are more l ike the private courtappointed lawyers they r eplaced to handle case in which public defenders have conflicts of interest. The Florida Constitution says counties can be required to pay some court expenses including public defendersoverhead. It doesnt, though, allow t he state to make counties p ay for court-appointed l awyers. Court: State must pay for defending poor

I n fact, according to Commissioner Jack Ritchie, the commission is revisiting i ts nuisance noise ordinance primarily because some counties are dealing with legal challenges to their noise ordinances. Even agreeing on what constitutes noise isnt easy. For example, Henry James, t he famous American author, was eased to sleep at night by the sound of his secretary typing the hand-written drafts he had produced during the day. Many people would find the sound of an old fashioned typewriterc lacking away anything but soothing, but James slept like a baby. Or take a lawn care contractor. The sound of his leafb lower early in the morning means he has a job, so the s ound is pleasing, while for the nurse next door, who just got off a midnight shift, thes ound is pure torture. In other words, one persons headache is another p ersons music. And one persons music is a nother persons headache. The commission will have a difficult time balancing the need for quiet and the need for work; the need for selfe xpression and the need to be left alone. Currently, the countys noise ordinance has 16 sections, dividing noises into categories, covering television sets to constructione quipment; animals to skate board ramps. The county now a llows working noise from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Public input is essential to arrive with at a policy everyone can live with. Write us orc all your county commissioner with your concerns and ideas. Noise ordinance deserves study Leave Christian events in the schools aloneEditor: This is a message that I believe should be brought into the light: The issue of atheism vs. Christianity. There are faults on both sides of the field and I, as a Christian, would like to address them both. For years, believers in God have tried tirelessly to prove the existence of God to non-believers. Non-believers have tried relentlessly to do the opposite, which is prove the believers wrong. Both parties must realize one thing: When it comes to faith, it does not matter what is fact or fiction. It is the simple belief that something exists. Therefore, the quarreling should stop. Of what harm is the simplicity of believing in God? None, and yet atheism promotes that Christianity is a poison and that it harms othersjudgements. Christians are said in the Bible to have blind judgements according to their own works, and not Gods. My message to my fellow Christians is this: Do not criticize the world, but share your beliefs within it peacefully. Yet do not hound those who do not listen, for they will have deaf ears until they choose to turn them to you. Be fishers of men, but share only to those who will hear it. Let the believers believe and let those who do not believe do exactly that. As for atheists: Trying to scientifically disprove something that is a matter of faith is a fools errand. There is no harm in believing in the power of love, strength, and peace that comes from God. If you wish to be technical, those people without religions you attempt to not offend by keeping God out of our schools offends those who have Him. My message to atheists is clear: I will not fight with you over something that you do not believe in, but you will not keep us from worshipping God when we want, where we want, and how we want. You live in a country that has freedom of speech, religion, and the right to assemble. I believe that makes you obligated to leave Christian events in schools alone. Aaron Haidle SebringHammering against Social Security has a historyEditor: The latest conservative to join the Republican full court press to cripple or kill Social Security is our own boy senator, the simonized Marco Rubio. Delivering his canned speech at the Reagan Library, with feign diffidence, Rubio, radiating false compassion, observed that ....Social Security is not sustainable for future generations, and it is destructive of the American spirit. His desire to be observed as the second coming of compassion conservatism will prove as hollow as George Ws first. The hammering against Social Security has a history with the GOP. Attempts to privatize it, to force it into the stock market were quickly abandoned with the recent market crashes. Yet this is still too big a sugar plum for Wall Street to give up on. Now individualized savings accounts to be funded by a portion of the Social Security tax are favored by some Republicans. To be invested in the market, of course. Others, advance the false premise that with only one worker to contribute for two retirees in the future, the plan is doomed to bankruptcy. What is ignored here are several salient facts. Firstly, the socalled special issue securities given to the Trust Fund when its surpluses were raided periodically by Congress constitutes full faith and credit indebtedness of the U.S. Government, as valid and enforceable as any federal bond. Now valued in excess of $1.7 trillion, but conveniently ignored by the GOP, repayment of this fund would sustain the plan well into the end of this century. Raising the cap of $106,800 and applying the contribution rate to earnings above the cap would result in automatic solvency. Since the high earners receive higher benefits such an adjustment is just and essentially painless. Nothing in law or conscience bars the Congress from providing such funds. Perhaps when Rubio has become more seasoned and better informed, he will not parrot the misleading slogans of the GOPextremists, with whom he currently finds comfort and opportunity and looks to the long term benefit of the electorate. For the moment his senatorial achievements are nonexistent. Randy Ludacer Lake PlacidA consequence with every actionEditor: I think President Obama hopes to discredit a former statement, America is no longer a Christian nation. He closed a recent speech with God bless America and a few other Christian quotes. How can anyone with all of his faculties believe anything the man says when you think of the church he was affiliated with and all the evil he has promoted. He has aligned himself with the homosexuals, disregarded our laws, encouraged illegal immigrants, which has and is bankrupting this nation, giving them the same benefits and more than the legal citizens, tried to get amnesty for them without going through the regular procedure, criticized our state law enforcement and much more. If our people let this slick, deceitful tongue fool them into electing him, we will all pay dear ly. The man cannot be trusted and is clearly a detriment to this country. He has encouraged the hiring of college professors in our colleges that have and are brainwash ing our young people into thinking that right is wrong and wrong is right, destroying everything that resembles morality and anything pertaining to God and His Holy Word, promoting ungodly teachin g as low as kindergarten. He is for eminent domain causing some to lose their property among other things. Now, I ask you, do you think God is going to continue blessing this nation if we continue to allow this trend of action? He teaches u s in His Holy Word, there is a consequence with every action. If you study the Old Testament, you will see this has happened before. The Bible is for all generations and with Him there is no partiality. There is a solution, I Chronicles 7:14. Read it and heed it. Let us a ll be faithful in seeking His guidance that He will give us wisdom in the nomination and election of leaders who will put Him first and seek His will daily for each of us. May God give us His divine leadership Willie Clyde (Toole) Cloud Sebring Make sure to sign your letter and include your address and phone number. Anonymous letters will be automatically rejected.

Indeed, no matter how certain a politician may bea bout taxes, wars, health care and the myriad probl ems that confront us, it serves no useful purpose to be painted into a corner by making a pledge. Said Huntsman: I have a pledget o my wife, and I pledge allegiance to my country, b ut beyond that, no pledges. Michele Bachmann, for i nstance, quickly found herself cornered by a pledge s he made last month in South Carolina that as president shed guarantee that g asoline prices drop to $2 per gallon. As her challengers noted, factors affecting gas prices are too numerous for any suchp ledge to be taken seriously. Just a few weeks ago, Rick Perry signed a pledge against gay marriage. In adding his name to the doc-u ment authored by the National Organization for M arriage, Perry backtracked on his earlier pledge that hew ould leave the definition of marriage up to the states. Ronald Reagan, the oftsighted model of conservative governing, raised taxes1 1 times during his presidency because it was the right thing for the nation. Yet, all the contenders, except Huntsman, have signed Grover Norquists T axpayer Protection Pledge the emphatic document, that bears the signatures of2 70 Republicans in Congress, rigidly opposing t ax hikes regardless of nature or need. Huntsmans refusal to p ledge makes good sense. I think it diminishes the political discussion, he e xplains. I think it jeopardizes your ability to lead o nce you get there. The tax pledge led to a ludicrous exchange during last months debate in Iowa in which Bachmann andT im Pawlenty squabbled over a sliver of Minnesota tax history back in 2005, when he was governor and she was in the legislature. The measure in question had nothing to do withi ncome taxes; it involved raising the tax on cigarettes. Y et there was Pawlenty, six years later, insisting that the cigarette hike was actually a fee rather than a tax, which he nevertheless regretted. Democrats have their own pledges, such as the Social Security Protectors Pledge, w hich compels signatories to oppose any cuts to Social Security benefits,i ncluding increasing the retirement age. Most H ouse Democrats have signed. Its one thing to take an u nequivocal position on certain moral questions like the death penalty, but to apply t he same absolutism to everchanging economic and p olitical issues is simply an abnegation of duty. One assumes that the public wants leaders who can think for themselves and, whenn ecessary, actually modify their positions. The late Tim Russert of NBC News was fond of asking candidates for high office to take pledges on all sorts of issues. InS eptember 2007, Russert asked Barack Obama if he w ould pledge to remove all troops from Iraq by the end of his first term. The question, in its absoluteness, was unreasonable, andO bama wouldnt bite. After offering that same pledge to other Democrats on stage, Russert asked H illary Clinton: Would you pledge to the American people that Iran will not devel-o p a nuclear bomb while you are president? She, t oo, declined to be bound by such a pledge especially one that would forever bep reserved on videotape in NBCs archives. Russert was a fine journalist, but his o bsession with pledges marred his interviews. N ow, pledges have become more than devices employed by TVhosts they are increasingly the currency of political posi-t ioning. Thats unfortunate, because at a time when Republicans and Democrats seem unable to agree on anything, pledges only make the situation moreh opeless. Taking a pledge is the p olitical equivalent of holding ones breath and turning blue or, as the case may be, red. Peter Funt is a writer and speaker and can be reached atw ww.CandidCamera.com/. Candidates should take the no-pledge pledge Candid Thoughts Peter Funt

Continued from page 2A POLICEBLOTTER aged to determine the yearl ong grade. For year long courses, nine-week grades below 50 percent will bea veraged using a value of 50 percent for the lowest nineweek period only one per c ourse. In other words, if a student r eceives 39 percent at the end of a nine-week grading period, that 39 would be raised to 50 percent when determining the students average. Thisw ould replace the lowest grade, not all of them. The policy was before the board because district administrators wanted to extend it to include semester-long courses as well. S chool board member Andy Tuck was first to r espond. He was, and remains, strongly opposed to the policy. When we move kids ahead when they arent ready,w e set them up for failure, he said, adding that moving unprepared students was unfair to the teachers who would have to work witht hem in the future. How about if (students harder and get a better grade? Chris Doty, the principal of Hill-Gustat Middle School, rose in the audience to defend the boards policy. Things do happen to kids, Doty said. What were talking about is the mathematical fact if you drill that kid with a zero, willh e ever recover? Doty was not referring to a c hilds emotional life, but the reality of hard numbers in averages. S chool board member Ned Hancock agreed and referred b ack to the changes in going from letter grades to numbers. Average an F and an A, he said, and the student gets a C. But, average a 0 and 90 and the student gets a 45 an F. Hancock added that students should get what they earn by doing the work. D oty, during a follow-up call with the News-Sun on W ednesday, said that numerical grades are essentially unbalanced. He explainedt hat while there are 10 points between a D and a C; a C and B ; a B and an A; an F runs from 0 to 59. This means, he said, a child who falls behind early may never be able to catch up. Research has shown, Doty said, that once a student fails one class, he or she is at greater risk to fail two, and then at a much greater risk to drop out of s chool altogether. Doty pointed out that 50 percent is not a passingg rade, so it is not as if students are being skipped a head. School Superintendent Wally Cox urged the board to support the policy. I want students who want to recover to have the chance, he said. Assistant superintendent B ecky Fleck added, This policy will not save a child who doesnt work. This willo nly help the child who doest do well in one nine-week p eriod. Tuck made a motion to r emove the 50 percent policy from the student progression p lan altogether. The motion met silence until board chairperson Donna Howertont urned her gavel over to Hancock, vice-chair of the board, and seconded the motion. For the second time, Howerton, who shares Tucks reservations, pushed for a workshop on the issue. She said there was a lot to think about and research to be done. She especially wanted to talk to teachers. School board attorney John McClure warned, however,t ime is pressing. The Student Progression Plan is a key document, he said. It is s tate mandated and needs to b e adopted. Normally it s done before school starts. H e also warned, referring to Tucks motion, that any changes to the policy altering its intent meant it first would have to re-advertised for 28 days, and then return to the board for approval. Why cant we change it? Tuck asked McClure. M cClure, who prefaced his c omments by saying, Im g oing out on a limb, explained his reasoning. The policy now allows the compassion grade of 50 percent in particular instances. Ending that policy without public notice violated state statutes, while voting for the current student progression plan excluding the semester course addition was not the same thing, because the s emester course was not yet i ncluded in the policy. In the end, the board voted 3 -2 to approve the student progression plan, without extending the 50 percent policy to semester long courses. It was agreed, however, that the issue needed more discussion and the issue might be revisited. Aworkshop has been set for 4 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 5 at the C ontinued from page 1A Things do happen to kids.

The soldier was raised by Daniel and Joan Shannon, who Kathleen calls the Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie of the Midwest. In addition to Stephen and Kathleen, they raised Molly, 20, and Patrick, 18, while adopting three children: Jack, 12, from South Korea; Mara, 6, from China; and Liam, 4, from Ethiopia. Like his parents, Stephen instantly connected with kids around the world. Children were drawn to him, Kathleen said. He could easily make anyone laugh, even in serious situations. Something else stood out to Kathleen as the siblings kept in close contact during Stephens five months serving in Iraq with the Armys 396th Engineer Battalion. Half a world away from Iowas golden fields, her brother was growing up. He realized that it wasnt all about him anymore, she explained. He was with his comrades. On Jan. 30, 2007, Cpl. Shannon drove over an improvised explosive device planted by terrorists in Ramadi, Iraq. According to Kathleen, shrapnel tore into her brothers leg, causing blood loss so massive that the military contacted her parents. Minutes later, Kathleen, who was on her way to an evening study group at Viterbo University in La Crosse, Wis., got a call from home. Kathleen, your brother has been in an explosion in Iraq, she vividly remembers her father saying. Like the day she plunged from her bicycle as an innocent child, Kathleen was helpless. It felt like I had been punched in the gut, she said. I fell to my knees and lost all strength in my legs. As she desperately awaited more news, the devastated sister briefly fell asleep. It was in Kathleens dreams that her big brother took her in his arms once again. He told me he was dead, she said. In the dream I said, No, this cant be happening. This cant be real. Ill make a deal with the devil and bargain to keep you alive Ill even trade places. No, its not your time, Kathleens brother replied in the dream. You have to stay here you have a long life to live. When she woke up, Stephen was dead. Yet, even in the painful weeks, months, and years that followed, he still managed to pick up his little sister, again and again. ou can be consumed by death and go to very dark places, she explained. our life can absolutely fall apart. While her journey hasnt been easy, Kathleen, who is expecting her first child, believes that from above, Stephen is still guiding her out of lifes steep valleys. s made me a stronger human being, and I survived, she concluded. I overcame death his death. Cpl. Stephen Shannon was willing to lay his life down for his siblings.

Continued from page 1A Brother still offering guidance Sebring settles water line issue w ill allow our students to stay within their communities and go on with their baccalaureate degrees to increase their job skills andm arketability. Because of convenience and affordability, we think this is a great addition for our students. Major employers in the c olleges service district are involved in public service, health care, business, and retail. Local employers tell us that they are looking for workers who have a liberale ducation, can think critically, have people skills, can s upervise staff, and can manage aspects of a business. They want employees whoh ave the job skills that can work effectively for them. W e believe this degree will off a lot of those components, Revell said. ithin the next five years, about 300 positions will be available in our district that require a bachelors d egree. That number will be 5 5,000 throughout Florida, and 83,000 nationwide. Although the number for the d istrict doesnt appear large, the BAS-SM will garner a student all kinds of job skills that can be used in several p arts of the state and country, not just locally Now that SFCC has received approval from the state board of education, SFCC will seek accreditation of its first baccalaureate d egree from the Southern Association of Colleges andS chools. The college itself has been accredited for years. In fact, it faces its 10-year review t his November. Within the district (made up of Highlands, DeSoto and Hardee counties) we have a n eed for more baccalaureate degrees, said Dr. Revell. Only 8-14 percent of the p opulation in these counties have earned a bachelors degree, well below the state and national average. This is a significant milestone for SFCC, said Dr. Norm Stephens, president, SFCC. I credit the faculty and staff who worked so hard over the last couple of years to prepare our proposal to the Florida State Board of Education. It is our intention to make this new offering of the highest qualit y. However, theres a great deal of work yet to be done. e will continue to offer a variety of associate degrees and workforce certificates as we have in the past, Dr. Stephens added. Our goal is to be responsive to the people in our college district. Continued from page 1A SFCC baccalaureate plans approved by state The news is just a click away!www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN

P erry was favored by 28 percent of the 374 registered Republican voters comparedt o 22 percent who wanted to see Romney as their nominee. The random telephone s urvey, conducted Sept. 1419 Quinnipiac University, h as a margin of error of plus or minus 5.1 percentage points. No other Republican presidential hopeful in the present field of candidatesr eceived double-digit backing. The poll came out ahead of Thursday afternoons candidate forum and an evening debate in swing-state Florida. Perrys advantage over Romney was even greater should former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin stay out of ther ace and also among GOP voters who described thems elves as part of the Tea Party movement. Perry was favored by 32 p ercent of Republicans to 21 percent who liked Romney b etter in a contest without Palin. The Texas governor led Romney 55 percent to 35p ercent among Tea Party folks. However, Quinnipiacs p oll released Thursday showed Obama would be m ore difficult to defeat if Perry becomes the Republican nominee, largely because Perry has work to do with voters independent ofe ither major political party. Romney, in a broader survey of 1,007 registered voters, was favored by 47 percent to Obamas 40 percent. Obama had a statistically meaningless 44-42 edge in a matchup with Perry. That larger sampling had a margin of error of 3.1 percent. P erry also has work to do with Florida seniors on his c onviction that Social Security is a Ponzi scheme. Fifty-eight percent said itw as unfair to describe Social Security as a Ponzi s cheme, and there was virtually no support for reducing Social Security with thee xception of raising the cap from the current $106,800 in salary subject to the tax. A lthough Obama carried Florida by a comfortable m argin in his 2008 victory over Republican John McCain, 53 percent of those questioned in the Quinnipiac survey said the presidentd oes not deserve a second term compared to 41 percent who believe he does.

M ore voters said they like the governor personally than they did a month ago, but still dont like how Scott is doing his job.

Voters were split evenly, 3 7 percent to 37 percent, when asked if they liked the n ew governor as a person, but 50 percent said they disapproved of the job hesd oing compared to 37 percent who gave him a favorable job rating. T he numbers were slightly better for Scott than in e arly August when 52 percent disapproved compared to 35 percent who believed Scott was doing a good job after slightly more thane ight months in office. More than half, 53 percent, said they do not approve of Scotts policies or the way he handled the state budget. Forty one percent said they believed that state budget cuts made earlier this year went too fara nd was unfair to people like them. oters dont like politicians they see as being unfair, especially when itc omes to cutting programs for people, Brown said. Politicians who can convince voters they are being fair on budget issues gain a leg up. B ut Scott showed increased strength within h is own party where 70 percent of Republicans ranked his job performance favor-a bly compared to 18 percent who disapproved. D emocrats disapproved by a margin of 82 percent to 8 percent.

News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE Ashley Townsend and the Lady Dragons were tripped up by DeSoto a night after Mondays big win against Sebring. By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comIt was the perfect trap. Aday after Lake Placid reveled in their second straight win over county rival Sebring, they took the court to face a new district rival that they had witnessed the Lady Streaks sweep less than two weeks prior. The let down in intensity from the night before was inevitable, though overlooking an opponent was foreseeable. But they both came into play as the Lady Bulldogs pulled a shocking three-set sweep of the Dragons Tuesday night. The sets were competitive, with the scores going 25-23, 25-21 and 25-21, but close only counts in horseshoes. I have no idea what happened, outside hitter Alana Nielander said. s not that they were that good. I guess our minds were on last nights game still and we werent focused. An observation head coach Linette Wells also made. Lady Dragon let down See LP, Page 4B By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK While they snatched victory from the jaws of defeat, the Lady Panthers nearly dropped victory into thel ap of defeat in W ednesday's multiple come-from-behind and fall-from-ahead, five-set win over visiting Warner. Setting the tone for the night, SFCC fell behind early in the opening set, predominantly self-inflicte d by errors. But, down 3-1, the team seemed to click with a kill and block from Malea Kalina and a Stephanie De Hoyos service ace to take a 5-3 lead. Play got scattered again, however, and the Lady Royals soon foundt hemselves up 17-14. I t was then that the Panthers put on one of those displays where the production fits the talent and gives a glimpse of the potential. Eleven of the next 12 points went their way, i ncluding a De Hoyos kill Panthers confuse, capture win See SFCC, Page 4B S pecial to the News-SunSEBRING Kegel Youth Bowlers ThomasW atson, Thorsten Przychocki, David Daniels and Patric Stacy, under the tutelage of coaches Joe a nd Mary Stacy, and Cindy Darling began the s ummer with a roaring t hird place in the State of Florida at the USBC State Youth Championships in Orlando. Following suit, 2010 Blue Streak Captain Carl Daniels and brother David showed their stuff with impressive results in Las Vegas at the USBC Open, placing 22nd out of 150 in the team event, 33rd of 270 in doubles, and 96th and 40th respectively, as individuals. Each were in fields of about 500. David then placed 18th out of 355 entries in All Events. Having previously won a qualifying tournament at the Kegel Training Center, under the guidance of coach Mary Stacy, David also bowled in the USBC Junior Gold Tournament, where qualifiers from all over the country vied for scholarships and a spot on Team USA. Up and comer David, at age 13, placed 574 in a field of 1070, lasting a respectable 18 games. On the ladies side, graduating senior Caitlin Smith portrayed excellence in her field, winning a $500 scholarship from the USBC Orange Belt Association, and also a $1000 scholarship from Floridas USBC Organization. Caitlin is now studying at USF to teach high school math with an eye toward administration, and is bowling for the Fighting Bulls. With those events giving them a running sta rt, Watson, Przychocki, the elder Daniels, Carl and ther est of the SHS Blue Streaks mens team are already rolling thunder at the start of one vigorous h igh school season. Also returning to the B lue Streaks this year are N ick Brod and Josh Lyons, with newcomers Jeremy Brod and JC Bowen. After their first two matches the team has a 20 record, averaging 207 as a team in their first match against the Pt St Lucie Jaguars. Then, last Thursday, the team took 5 of 7 points to win their second match, missing a sweep by only seven pins. An exciting new addition to the Blue Streaks this year is the Ladie team of Christine Smith, Meghan Williams, Shalontay Rose, Kiana Crain and Marissa Andujar. Getting their bearings in their first competition last week, they came back Thursday in Okeechobee to sweep the South Fork Lady Bulldogs. Both teams are coached this year by USBC Silver Level Coach Rick Wiltse, and assisted by Paul Przychocki. All players are showing great promise, and with only two of ten scheduled matches under their belts, all of the Blue Streaks are looking ahead to keep the thunder rolling. All are invited to come out and cheer for the team. The next match is Friday, Sept. 23 in Stuart against the Martin County Tigers.

Blue Streak bowlers are rolling thunder By MARK LONG Associated PressJACKSONVILLE The Jacksonville Jaguars have their third starting quarterback in 15 days. They believe this one could b e the guy for 15 years. C oach Jack Del Rio named Blaine Gabbert the starter Wednesday, switching signal callers three days after Luke McCown threw four interceptions against the New York Jets. The move comes a little m ore than a week after Del Rio released veteran starter David Garrard following a poor preseason and a threeinterception practice. Gabbert will make his first start Sunday at Carolina. s a big strong kid whose really been kind of a star quarterback his whole life, Del Rio said. We think he has a chance to be a franchise-type quarterback. Hesg etting a chance now to be our starting quarterback and become that guy The transition was i nevitable since the Jaguars selected Gabbert with the 1 0th pick in Aprils draft. Del Rio had hoped to take it s low with the former Missouri standout, even planning to g ive him a year to watch and learn behind Garrard. But Garrard struggled in the preseason and was outplayed by McCown, a career backup. Del Rio named McCown the starter five days before the season opener. McCown did enough to win the opener against Tennessee, but his ninth start in eight seasons was a debacle. He was picked off four times, could have thrown a couple more and was sacked for a safety all in just three quarters McCown wanted a chance to redeem himself, but understood the decision. s to say what one deserves, McCown said. It would do me or this team zero good to sit and say I deserve another chance. I didnt perform last week and thats just the blunt fact of it. I didnt play well enough to give our team a chance to win. Im big enough to stand up here and say that. McCown completed 6 of 19 passes for 59 yards against the Jets, finishing with a 1.8 quarterback rating. The Jets won 32-3, the second worst loss in Del Rios nine-year tenure. And since hes widely considered to be coaching for his future team owner Wayne Weaver said the Jaguars need to make the playoffs for Del Rio to stick around another year it was reasonable to wonder whether he would put his fate in the hands of a rookie quarterback. Del Rio chuckled when asked whether he went to Weaver to see if playing 14 games with a first-year quarterback would change expectations. I dont look at life like that, Del Rio said. Im a competitive guy. We expect to be a good football team. That will not change. Absolutely not would be a better way to say it. The furthest thing from my mind. Gabbert threw 40 touchdown passes and 18 interceptions as a two-year starter at Missouri. Because of the NFLlockout, he missed minicamp, organized team activities and dozens of meetings with Jaguars to start rookie QB Gabbert See JAGS, Page 3B Page 3B

The Veterans Council Golf Tournament is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 22, at Harder Hall. Proceeds from the 4-man team shotgun scramble, silent auction, and 50/50 will go to benefit the Veterans Assistance Fund. The Meals on Wheels Golf Tournament will be held on Saturday, Nov. 5, at Harder Hall. This tournament is usually sold out and itsproceeds assist in providing meals to the clients. On Sunday, Nov. 6, the Mens Golf Association of Sun n Lakes is sponsoring a golf tournament with proceeds to benefit the Veterans Assistance Fund.

American Legion Post 25, Lake Placid, has slated May 8, 2012 in SpringLakes for their annual Golf Tournament. If a Unit would like to help sponsor one or more of these events, please contact the sponsoring group. There is always a need for volunteers. Volunteers are needed at the registration table, the silent auction, raffle and watching for a hole-in-one.

Continued from 1B MCTphoto Rookie Blaine Gabbert will get the start for JacksonvilleS unday, against fellow rookie QB Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers. Jags go with Gabbert By BARRYWILNER A ssociated PressNEWYORK To the fake handoff and fake field goals, add fake injuries. The NFLsent a memo Wednesday to all 32 teams warning of fines, suspensions and loss of draft picks if the league determines players faked injuries during a game. Yet several players admit its an accepted practice, and some coaches hinted they are not above condoning phony injuries if it provides a competitive edge. Ive been places where it has been (taught Scott Fujita, a member of the players union executive committee. They have a name for it and Ive been places where its been pre-called. Ive been places where its one player who has been designated. Maybe Im getting everyone in trouble, but Im just being honest. In the memo obtained by The Associated Press, the NFLreminded teams of league policy that calls on coaches to discourage the practice. There is no specific rule on the topic. Nonetheless, two days after there was speculation the GiantsDeon Grant faked an injury against the Rams during Monday nights game, the NFL is warning of disciplinary action. s always been in the game, Ravens All-Pro safety Ed Reed said. s all tactical stuff you need to use. Whatever it takes. ... If youre tired, youre tired. You get a break however you can. Added 49ers running back Frank Gore: Hey, I feel if it helps, do it. Im bound to do it. Whatever it takes to win ... Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo said Tuesday the team notified the league office that it suspected the Giants were feigning injuries in St. Louis28-16 loss. Rams quarterback Sam Bradford said it was obvious the Giants were just buying time with St. Louis runninga no-huddle offense. They couldnt get subbed, they couldnt line up, Bradford said. Someone said, Someone go down, someone go down,so someone just went down and grabbed a cramp. Grant was adamant about not having faked anything. I could see if I was walking and fell, he said Wednesday, speaking passionately and barely taking a breath. When you see after I made that tackle and bang my knee on that play, you see me bending my knee as I am walking. ... (Teammate Justin) Tuck is walking behind me and saying D dont run off the field. Just go down.As I am walking, they line up, and knowing that I cant get back in my position because of the knee injury,I went down. Had Grant attempted to get off the field, it could have left the Giants a defender short when the ball was snapped. Of course, New York also could have called a timeout, a course of action teams might need to use in the future. Redskins coach Mike Shanahan was coy about the tactic when asked if he ever instructed a defense to do it. I cant say I have, Shanahan said before pausing. But I wont say I havent, either Then he smiled. It happens all the time, and warnings will come out, he added, and its happened again. The memo from the league said: Going forward, be advised that should the league office determine that there is reasonable cause, all those suspected of being involved in faking injuries will be summoned promptly to this office ... to discuss the matter. Those found to be violators will be subject to appropriate disciplinary action for conduct detrimental to the game. The leagues competition committee often has discussed this issue but has been reluctant to propose a rule that could force game officials to make judgments on injuries. e have been fortunate that teams and players have consistently complied with the spirit of the rule over the years and this has not been an issue for the NFL, the memo said. We are determined to take all necessary steps to ensure that it does not become an issue. For the most part, such delay tactics have been considered gamesmanship, similar to a hockey goalie suddenly needing equipment repairs when his team is getting besieged. Or untouched soccer players writhing on the ground in pain to get a stoppage and to slow momentum built by the other side. As an offensive player, you always think guys are faking in that situation, Eagles guard Kyle DeVan said. But you dont know for sure. You dont know when guys are going to cramp up, so you have to be careful. The most important thing is playershealth. You would hope guys dont do it, but its going to happen. It might be planned, too. While calling it real bush league no pun intended Dolphins running back Reggie Bush said a coach just designates a guy who fakes an injury. Its usually not a captain of the team. Its a guy whos expendable. The NFLs disciplinarians will be watching for that. AP Pro Football Writer Rob Maaddi in Philadelphia and AP Sports Writers Richard Rosenblatt in New York, R.B.

C M Y K B y JEFFLATZKE and JIM VERTUNO Associated PressBig 12 leaders were to meet Thursday, trying to find ways to stabilize the conference, including changing the leadership. Former Big Eight Commissioner Chuck Neinas told The Associated Press on Thursday morning that he has been contacted by members of the Big 12 about possibly replacing commissioner Dan Beebe on an interim basis, and that hes interested. The Big 12 and Beebe are reportedly working on an agreement for him to leave his position. Neinas said on the agenda for the Big 12 presidents later Thursday is whether theyre going to retain an interim commissioner I have not been retained as of yet, Neinas said. If that happened, it would happen at the end of the day Texas President William Powers declared Wednesday that the Longhorns who receive more media money than other members of the Big 12 are open to a new revenue-sharing model and have already suggested that top-level television and cable money be shared equally. Whats not on the table is the money from Texas20year, $300 million deal with ESPN to create the Longhorn Network, which has been blamed in large part for Texas A&Ms pending departure from the Big 12. Thats never been in play, thats not in play, Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds said. Oklahoma President David Boren said the most important goal for the Sooners is conference stability. e intend to support actions that will strengthen and stabilize the conference at the very important meetingo f the conference board, he said. The Pac-12 late Tuesday squashed any hope of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas and Texas Tech heading west in what surely w ould have been a death blow to the Big 12. But the conference realignment wheels are still turning, especially with the Aggies planning to join the Southeastern Conference as soon as legal threats are out of the way. Certainly the position of Oklahoma State and I think most of the schools, if not all, is that we want to add a 10th team, said Oklahoma State President Burns Hargis, a member of the leagues expansion committee. He listed TCU, Houston, SMU, BYU, Utah and Air Force among the potential expansion targets before saying weve talked about a lot of ideas. The Big East, left with only six football members after Pitt and Syracuse announced plans to join the ACC, must also find a new way forward while the Mountain West and Conference USAare in discussions about a partnership. The talk of saving the Big 12 centers on sharing television revenue equally a core principle of the Big Ten and Pac-12. The Big 12 splits the revenue from its $1.2 billion Fox Sports contract evenly, but o nly half of the money from its top-tier deal with ABC goes into equal shares. The rest is weighted toward the programs that play on the network more frequently, such as Texas and Oklahoma. Dodds said Big 12 athletic directors more than a month ago approved Texassuggestion to equally share to network revenue around the league. He said the plan has not been voted on by league presidents. Texas Tech President Guy Bailey said he doesnt anticipate much opposition to that idea. I would be surprised if there werent a change in that, in some way, he said. Now, how exactly it plays out, I dont know Beebe has not commented on the turmoil surrounding the league and there is speculation about his future. The Kansas City Star, citing two sources with knowledge of the decision, reported Wednesday night that Beebe was working on an agreement to leave his position and that an announcement of Beebes departure was expected Thursday. Beebes contract was extended in November through June 2015, a decision made after Nebraska and C olorado announced they were leaving the Big 12 and before the 13-year deal was r eached with Fox Sports in April. Dodds declined comment, and Bailey and Hargis called Beebes status a private personnel matter. Besides Thursdays meeting of the Big 12 conference board, a summit also is possible between Texas and Oklahoma officials. Big 12 athletic directors also have a previously scheduled meeting in Dallas next week. ESPN distanced itself from the conference affiliation uproar, saying the driving force on realignment lies with the conferences and universities. Still, the Longhorn Network created uncertainty in the Big 12 and Texas A&M said it was a big reason why the Aggies will leave the Big 12 by July a decision that stands, the school said Wednesday. Nebraska athletic director Tom Osborne earlier this month said the Big 12s revenue-sharing plan lends itself to instability. The Huskers is in its first season as a member of the Big Ten, where each school received $22.6 million this year about twice as much as Nebraska could have expected if it had stayed in the Big 12. TexasPowers said revenue sharing will be subject to discussion in coming days. lot of these issues that you hear (abouts revenue sharing or whatever, weve been working on long before, he said. We will continue to work on those. Im not going to prejudge on how those will come out. There are not any preconditions for the conference coming back together. e want a stable, workable conference going forward, Powers said. Once the Aggies leave, the Big 12 will have nine memb ers unless a replacement or replacements are foun d. Only SMU has gone public with its interest in joining the Big 12. s about quality, not quantity, Dodds said. In my mind, 10 is the perfect conference. You have a clear p ath to the national championship game without stumbling in a (conference pionship game. There was still activi ty around the Big 12 on Wednesday. Oklahoma States regen ts gave school President Hargis the power to depart the Big 12 if necessary while regents in Kansas reiterated their support for staying in the Big 12. Regents in Missouri we re scheduled to meet Thursday. Hargis said the decision to give him authority over a league change was important even after the Pac-12 was taken off the table as a potential destination because there are a lot of moving parts here and we may have to make decisions fast. He said his first priority is stabilizing the Big 12.

That next time with DeSoto takes place early next month. But in the meantime, Lake Placid was at Avon Park Thursday night in a district and county rival match that should have brought the intensity back up. See Sundays News-Sun f or a recap of the match. Continued from 1B LP trapped by Bulldogs and Shelby Flint ace, that turned the three-point deficit i nto a 25-18 win. F resh off the fast and nearflawless finish, it would have seemed the momentum was locked in and ready to roll through. A4-0 and then 13-7 lead for Warner in the second set said otherwise. B ut again, South Florida started to click and soon evened things up at 14-all. Back and forth for the next few points had it tied 18-18 before two De Hoyos kills were added to by an Eryn Mahoney kill and Caitlin Carlander ace, for another strong finish and 25-20 win. So maybe it was a case of being a slow-starting team that takes some time to get into the flow before kicking in and taking off. Well, nothing kicked in at all as the Panthers apparently took the third set off. I have no idea what that was, exasperated head coach Kim Crawford said. Two great finishes and suddenly its like theyve never seen a volleyball before. Falling behind 20-5 and losing 25-9 pretty much portray the sentiment. One point in the set came o n a Warner error, with the other eight coming on three kills apiece from De Hoyos and Flint and two fromB rittany Hill. Zero blocks, no service aces and countless South Florida errors allowed theL ady Royals to walk away with the win. Though the errors werent actually countless. e gave them 15 points on errors that set, assistant coach Charlotte Bauder said. If the potential points from those errors were even split up with an 8-7 Warner advantage, then its an 18-16 score with anything possible. And the fourth set showed it wasnt a matter of starting slow, as the Lady Panthers roared out of the gate to 8-4 then 15-9 leads. But it was now Warner working itsway back, catching SFCC at 17 and going up 23-18. South Florida then woke up, again, and were on thev erge, leading 25-24 and h olding serve. Two straight Warner scores flipped the script, but two straight Panther points, witha deft tip from Khaleesha Williams, had them back at game point with the serve. But a service error evened it back up before the Royals ripped off the final two points for a 30-28 win to even the match. And while things seemed to be going SFCCs way in the 15-point tie-breaker, this night showed that nothing was even remotely close to certain. Warner was held to just one point at a time while the Panthers scored in enough small bunches to have a 12-8l ead with De Hoyos contributing two kills and Hill adding a kill and a block. But of course, the one time i n the set that the Royals went on a run it was now, with three straight to close t he gap to 12-11 and elevate the concern of the crowd and c oaches. The Warner service, t hough, was soon broken and a Kalina kill swung things back South Floridas way before finishing off the 15-12 win. Asomewhat stunned look o n her face, Crawfords initial response afterward was, We won, with a rather sardonic tone and roll of the e yes. It was good to get the win, to get a win, for team m orale, Crawford went on to say. And at times we p layed really well. But this should never have gone five s ets and that third set, I dont know what that was. I mean, how do you coach that? There was little time to figure that out for this Jekyll and Hyde team as theP anthers set to welcome Polk State Thursday night in a Suncoast Conference match. De Hoyos lead the offense w ith 19 kills with Flint adding 12. Four Panthers were in doub le figures in digs with Klemp tallying 18, De Hoyos 1 7, Flint 14 and Hill 11. Kalina had a strong night a t the net with four blocks while Flint and Hill each had two and Carlander set up the offense with 50 assists.

HEALTHYLIVING A RAContentL ike most parents, Kari and Lyle Judson had never heard of respiratory syncytial virus, commonly known as RSV. But in December 2008,w hen RSVtook the life of one of their twin sons, those t hree letters forever changed their lives. Kari gave birth to preemie t win boys, Alexander and Dominic, both weighing well u nder 5 pounds. When the boyslung function proved normal for preterm infants, t hey were declared healthy and were discharged without any warning about the dangers of RSVduring the winter months. R SVis a common, seasonal virus which can lead to symptoms similar to the cold or flu. While the virus affects nearly 100 percent of babiesb efore the age of 2, those most at risk for developing s evere RSVdisease are premature babies those bornb efore 36 weeks gestation. Premature babies have underdeveloped lungs and fewer of the vital antibodies needed to stave off infections, so theya re not as well-equipped to fight RSVas full-term babies. Other risk factors for RSVinclude: low-birth weight (less than 5.5p ounds), certain lung and heart diseases, and situational risk factors such as attending daycare, having pre-school or school-aged siblings, or exposure to tobacco smoke. With their parents unaware of the dangers that even a play date could present, Alexander and Dominic enjoyed their first months of life. On Dec. 28, 2008, howe ver, both boys began displaying signs of listlessness and developed fevers hallmarks of RSVdisease. They were taken to the local hospi-t al, where Alexanders condition quickly worsened and he w as not responsive to breathing treatments. Due to the severity of his condition,A lexander was airlifted to a specialty hospital, but while i n transport, he lost brain function due to lack of oxygen and was put on life supp ort. Even as they were dealing with the tragic loss of Alexander, the Judson family still had to face Dominicss evere RSVinfection, which required breathing treatments and an 11-day hospital stay. While deaths are not common, RSVdisease causes upt o 10 times as many infant deaths each year as the flu, r esulting in up to 400 infant deaths annually in the U.S.A dditionally, RSVdisease is the leading cause of infant hospitalization in the U.S., and is responsible for one of every 13 pediatrician visitsa nd one of every 38 trips to the emergency room. In fact, Kari found herself back at the pediatric pulmonologists office when her third son,R yan, developed a mild RSV infection, requiring breathing treatments. Because there is no treatment for RSVdisease, Kari and many in the medical community say the importance of prevention cant be emphasized enough. I want all parents to know about the dangers of RSV and what they can do to prot ect their little ones from this virus, says Kari. Were so thankful Dominic and Ryan both recently received clean bills of health, but we willc ontinue to be alert for symptoms of RSVdisease and take s teps to prevent the spread of germs, especially during the RSVseason. P arents should do the following to help protect their b abies from RSV: Understand the risk factors and ask a pediatrician if y our child may be at increased risk Help prevent the spread of the virus with frequent washing of hands, toys andb edding, and avoiding large crowds and those who are sick Carefully monitor your babys behavior for warnings igns like a severe cough or wheezing; difficulty breathi ng or rapid, gasping breaths; blue color of the lips, mouth,a nd/or fingernails; difficulty feeding; fatigue and fever Ive seen how seriously RSVcan affect babies and their families, says pediatricc ritical care physician Dr. Paul Checchia, director of the Cardiovascular Intensive Care Unit at the Texas Childrens Hospital and pro-f essor of pediatrics at Baylor College of Medicine. While frequent hand washing is the best defense for most families, babies at the highest risk may need extra precaution and should talk to their babys doctor.

C M Y K Associated PressUNITED NATIONS World leaders have pledged to take wide-ranging action to prevent millions of deaths from cancer, diabetes, and heart and lung disease by tackling the key causes smoking, excessive drinking, lack of exercise and unhealthy diets dominated by fast food. But the 13-page political declaration approved at the first-ever General Assembly meeting on chronic diseases which ended Tuesday left unanswered the question of coordinating an international response to what the leaders called a challenge of epidemic proportions. The declaration notes with profound concern that according to the World Health Organization, an estimated 36 million of the 57 million global deaths in 2008 were due principally to cancer, diabetes and heart and lung diseases including about 9 million men and women below the age of 60. WHO said 80 percent of these deaths were in developing countries. At a final round-table discussion, Prime Minister Denzil Douglas of St. Kitts and Nevis said, Our response must be urgent, it must be comprehensive, and it has to be fully coordinated at the national, regional and local levels. Douglas, who chairs the Caribbean Community known as CARICOM, said priority must be given to international coordination so there can be effective monitoring of the diseases and effective measures to reduce the risk factors and strengthen health care systems, especially in developing countries where cases of the four diseases are increasing rapidly. The only other high-level General Assembly meeting on a health issue, in 2001, led to creation of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, with billions of dollars provided by governments and private groups such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. At the round-table, many speakers proposed that the global fight against non-communicable diseases follow the same model. Some proposed a coordinating body, possibly under the World Health Organization, and Poland said an international network of organizations specializing in chronic diseases would be valuable. The declaration asks U.N. Secretary-General Ban Kimoon to submit options to strengthen and facilitate global action to combat these diseases to the General Assembly by the end of 2012. Non-communicable diseases can be prevented and their impacts reduced, with millions of lives saved and untold suffering avoided, the declaration said. To achieve this, the leaders pledged to accelerate implementation of WHOs antismoking treaty and its global strategies to promote healthy diets and physical activity, and reduce the harmful use of alcohol.

Maintain a healthy lifestyle You can reduce your risk f or breast cancer by leading a healthier lifestyle includi ng exercising regularly, making healthier choicesw hen it comes to eating and drinking, and limiting your exposure to tobacco and alcohol. The changes dont have to be drastic start withs imple changes, such as swapping one sugarsweetened beverage a day for water, adding fruit and vegetables to your diet ort aking the dog for an extralong walk. 2. Know your history and how to detect the symptoms Despite a healthy lifestyle, if you have a family history of breast cancer, that adds to your risk. So, its crucial to know if any of your close relatives have had the disease. In addition, there are factors you can be on the lookout for as warning signs at almost any age. The American Cancer Society recommends starting routine self-examinations in your 20s, so you can report any changes or concerns to your health care provider. You can also visit MayoClinic.com for more information. Yearly mammograms are recommended starting at age 40. 3. Support research and the mission to find a cure Great work has been done t o improve the treatment of breast cancer and researchers are working tirelesslyt owards a cure. In order to continue their intensive and innovative research, they n eed the support of organizations, such as The Breast C ancer Research Foundation (BCRF work. BCRF, for example, directs more than 90 cents of every dollar donated tob reast cancer research and awareness programs. There are simple ways for you to get involved from buying products that support these types of organizations to hosting a fundraiser withf riends. Nestle Pure Life brand b ottled water is a great example, spotlighting breast cancer awareness on its packaging nationwide and in Canada during Breast CancerA wareness Month (October For every specially marked pink ribbon package produced, the company will donate 10 cents to BCRF( minimum donation of $350,000). The funding will support a BCRF grant directed to researchers who are working on innovative ways to prevent, treat and cure all aspects of breast cancer. For more information on how to get involved in raising awareness and on the latest research and breakthroughs, visit BCRFCure.org. Understanding risks is half the battle against breast cancer D earPharmacist: Im concerned about diabetes, Im overweight, and it runs in my family. My sister has your diabetes book and said you recommend HolyB asil, among other herbs and nutrients. Is that the same as regular basil and would you tell me more? A.L., Rockwall, Texas Answer: I think Holy Basil a f abulous herb. This herb has been prized for centuries and is considered a sacred plant. It is related to other types of basil, but its not the same as the fresh basil you buy inA merican supermarkets (which is great too), or the dried spice form. Holy Basil acts as an adaptogeni n the body, meaning it helps you adapt. It protects cells, improves e ndurance and helps you cope with s tress by supporting adrenal and thyroid function. Holy Basil is also called Tulsi in Ayurvedic medicine; both terms refer to the herb known in latin asO cimum sanctum. Whatever you call it, it delivers. Compounds in Holy Basil have been shown in clinical trials to nourish the pancreas, and specifi-c ally help generate healthy new beta cells. These beta cells are the bodys insulin-production factories, and insulin lowers blood sugar. See the connection? Holy Basil helpso ther cells in your body open up their receptor (their door welcomes insulin like a long lostf riend. This is a beautiful thing, because it lightens the load on your liver and precious adrenal glands.Y ou may notice fewer craving for sweets. Hey, getting your hand out of the cookie jar could mean faster weight loss. L isten up if you have high cholesterol or triglycerides. Conventional medicine might callf or statin drugs to reduce these markers. Studies suggest that Holy Basil can help reduce blood fatsw hich, as you know, contribute to h eart disease and remain a devastating complication of diabetes. Holy Basil happens to be a potent antioxidant, sweeping away damaged cells that could run amok.T ulsi happens to also have antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. I hate fungus. Im all about killing bad germs, and growing good ones (probioticsWith that in mind,c onsider Holy Basil this fall to reduce the risk of cough and cold. I drink Holy Basil every day, in the form of tea (its called Tulsi Tea), and I keep the tea bags in myp urse so at restaurants, I just ask for a cup of hot water and steep it at my table. Holy Basil is strongerw hen taken as an oral supplement. Organic India, New Chapter and Source Naturals all make commer-c ial brands. As for safety, its been u sed for eons and has an impress ive track record, but because it lowers blood sugar, I dont want you to combine it with prescribed diabetes medication unless you closely monitor your blood sugar and remain supervised by your doctor so he can reduce medicatio n dosage when necessary. Youll find other simple recomm endations to manage diabetes and weight in my new book Diabetes without Drugs, available at book stores nationwide and Amazon.

Holy Basil is a heavenly herb with healthy side effects HEALTHYLIVING Dear Pharmacist Suzy Cohen Associated PressWASHINGTON At l east one part of President Barack Obamas health care o verhaul has proven popular. With the economy sputtering, the number of younga dults covered by health insurance grew by about a m illion as families flocked to take advantage of a new benefit in the law. T wo surveys released Wednesday one by the government, another by G allup found significantly fewer young adults g oing without coverage even as the overall number of uninsured remained high. The governments National Center for HealthS tatistics found that the number of uninsured people ages 19-25 dropped from 10 million last year to 9.1 million in the first three months of this year, a sharp decline over such a briefp eriod. Aseparate Gallup survey reported that the share ofa dults 18-25 without coverage dropped from 28 perc ent last fall to 24.2 percent by this summer. That drop translates to roughly 1 mil-l ion or more young adults gaining coverage. T he new health care law allows young adults to remain on their parentsh ealth plans until they turn 26. Previously, families f aced a hodgepodge of policies. Some health plans c overed only adult children while they were full-time students. Others applied an age cutoff. The two surveys were w elcome news for the administration, which is trying to fight off attempts to repeal the law which some GOPlawmakers and candidates call Obamacare or to over-t urn it in court.

Most of us can still remember exactly where we were, what we were doing, our reaction, w hether seen on TVor heard on radio. On that fateful day, I was sitting at my desk in the newsroom, typing items foro ur Tuesday deadline day. After the planes hit, it seemed the newsroom grew silent, with some co-worke rs calling loved ones they knew in New York, others crying, others in shock. Somehow we managed tof unction for the deadline, in b etween watching the editorsTVand praying for everyone involved. Millions of Americans flocked to churches, syna-g ogues, temples, or places o f worship to seek the answer from God as to why this happened? Today, it still doesnt make sense and were prayi ng and hoping it never happens again, though terrorists keep threatening that it will somewhere, somehow, somep lace. Everythings changed a nd is still changing. S ometimes change is good; sometimes its not. America is the place where dreams are made. It shouldnt have happened h ere. The land of the brave, t he free. Yet, we see in other countries the horrors: Lack of safe water, food and genocide. Parentschildren are dying of starvation, l ack of medicine, right in their arms from diseases that could be prevented or cured in the U.S. The world, in different p laces, is confronted with t errors of many kinds daily. And God help those who just suffer in silence, not allowed to get protection, do not have rights, etc., due t o lack of human rights; or are unable to pursue whatever rights their government gives them for various reasons. The Bible does tell us God will call the nations to give an account for how they managed their peoples. Needless to say, many will be in trouble. I think of Mexico and the drug cartel, drive-by shootings are the norm there. Why doesnt their government do something about them? Mexicans are hoping this wont be the day they get shot or their families. I guess America is catching up with the rest of the worlds maladies. What were seeing now is no longer just a good Hollywood thriller. At this time, I can think of two televangelists who have predicted the hard times this nation has been through since 9/11: David Wilkerson and Rodney Howard Brown. Rev. Brown preached in 1 999 that America was about to face a horrific tragedy of some sort and the church wasnt ready, not to mention the rest of the world. How did he know?G od impressed it on his heart, as he walked the s treets of New York, tears running down his face, sensing something was notr ight. Wilkerson had preached f or years (hes moved to Heaven) that the church needed to come back to her true love before a wake-up call came and even feltN ew York would be attacked. T elevangelists are not everybodys favorite because of all the foolish-n ess that has taken place in the name of God. Im sure G od will deal with those people. But in the meantime, there are some whoa re still full of conviction and should be listened to and heeded. S o, was 9/11 a judgment from God? Jesus answered a similar question in the Bible when the (tower of Siloam fell on some Jews Luke 13:1-9), he asked if they were anymore wickedt han any others? The answer was No, but except ye repent, ye shall likewise perish. I feel that some tragedies we may bring on ourselves (like our health, if we donte at/exercise, etc.); staying in bad relationships harms u s, etc. Then there are ones the enemy of our souls just throws on us for his entertainment (theologians say when we have unconfesseds in in our lives, it opens the door for the enemy to come against us, but of course God limits it, like in Jobs case). Then God is sendinga wake-up call. Sometimes, when people die in a tragedy, it may be their time to go? There were people who didnt go into work that day, based on a hunch. Divine intervention? Yes, I believe so. If we had all the answers, we wouldnt need faith in God. Those innocent lives lost? Theyre not lost to God and even though their loved ones left behind miss them terribly, they will see them again one day. Thank God for salvation and the chance to be re-united with our loved ones...Jesus made that way. Janelle Dennison is news clerk for the News-Sun. She can be reached at 385-6155 ext. 539.

RELIGIONSNAPSHOTS Restoration is defined as to bring back to or put back into a former or original state (Websters NewC ollegiate Dictionary). These ideas are also expressed in the Hebrew and Greek of the Bible. An excellent example of the restorat ion of old paths is in the work of King Josiah recorded in Second Kings 22-23. The first thing to note is that his restoration work was based on the Book of the Covenant, not opinions or what was popular or traditions. As you read chapter 23:4-20, observe how many things he removed/destroyed that were foreign to the Book of the Covenant. These were placed into their worship by men, even things kings of Judah had ordained i.e. Ahaz, Manasseh, Solomon and Jeroboam of Israel. Another vital part of Josiahs restoration was to Keep the Passover to the Lord your God, as it is written in this Book of the Covenant (23:21 Returning to the old paths involves removing that which is not part of the original and putting back into place that which is. It does not take a Solomon to see the apostasy rampant in the Christendom of today. Just a casual study of church history and the present r eligious picture shows the fulfillment of Second Thessalonians 2:1-12, First Timothy 4:1-5, Second Timothy 4:1-5 and other such prophecies. The plea of God Almighty in the days of Judahs unfaithfulness is very relevant today: Stand in the ways and see, and ask for the old paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; then you will find rest for your souls (Jeremiah 6:16 Jesus, the Christ declared to have all authority (Matthew 28:18 was the head of the church of Christ which is His body. (Ephesians 1:22; 5:23) He never shared that place of authority or headship with anyone. His great love for mankind was manifested in His death which purchased the church/saved/kingdom. (Ephesians 5:25; Acts 20:28; Colossians 1:13,14). Many things that are accepted today as gospel truth are in reality innovations of men and women over centuries and are quickly recognized as such by serious students of the Word. Consider the following observation: It is most likely that in the apostolic age when there was but one Lord, one faith, an d one baptism,and no differing denominations existed, the baptism of a conv ert by that very act constituted him a member of the church, and at once endowed him with all the rights and privileges of full membership. In thats ense baptism was the door into the church.Now, it is different. (Edward Hiscox). Now, it is different, by whose authority? This statement reflects the need of restoration like the times of Josiah and Jeremiaha return to the Authoritya return to the old paths. Tragically, the response in Jeremiahs day was and of many today is We will not walk in it. (Jeremiah 6:16 Did you observe that Josiah ignored the leading men (Ahaz, Manasseh, Solomon, Jeroboam) to go back to the Book of the Covenant? This is a wo rthy example needed today for the restoration of the old pathsthe Faith (Jude v.3) The danger of I am of Pau or I am of Apollos or I am of Cephas or I am of Christ (I Corinthians 1:10-13) still exist even today.

Two months after removing two books from its curriculuma nd school library, a southwest Missouri school board has voted to allow them back into the library but with strong restrictions on who will be allowed to checkt hem out. The Republic school b oard voted in July to remove Kurt Vonneguts Slaughterhouse-Five" andS arah Ocklers Twenty Boy Summer from the school a fter a man who does not have children there said the books taught values contrary to the Bible. That decision triggered heated debate inR epublic and prompted Mondays decision to revise t he schools book policy. Under the revised policy approved before a packed meeting room, the board agreed to allow challengedb ooks to be kept in a secure section of the school library. Only parents who want their children to read the book will be allowed to check ito ut. It does keep the books there in the library, and if parents want their kids to read the book, by all means come and check it out, saidS uperintendent Vern Minor. It still puts the decision in p arentshands. Ayear ago, Republic resident Wes Scroggins com-p lained about the appropriateness of those two books a s well as Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson. On July 25, following Minors recommendation, the board kept Speak and removed theo ther two books. C ourt of Appeal declines to get involved in Micanopy church dispute

C M Y K By ANTHONYMcCARTNEY A PEntertainment WriterL OS ANGELES Inside the compact, wood-paneled courtroom that will soon host the trial of Michael Jacksons personal physi-c ian, many of the tabloidworthy elements of the singers life will go unspoken. Outside, however, many J ackson fans say they expect a media free-for-all that will dredge up discredited allegations and salacious story lines, once again tarnishing the singers legacy. J ackson, they fear, will once again be on trial. A round the globe, the King of Pops supporters are already scanning headlinesa nd airwaves for stories that contain inaccuracies about t he singers life, brand him a pedophile or describe him by the dismissive moniker Jacko. The items quickly result in c alls to editors, reporters, producers and a flurry of F acebook and Twitter posts to press for changes. In some instances, the references arer emoved. As the trial of Dr. Conrad M urray draws closer jury selection resumes on Friday and opening statements ares cheduled for Sept. 27 concerns about Jacksons portrayal are growing. We dont want Michael Jackson to be put up on a p edestal like he never made any mistakes, said Erin Jacobs, a founder of the Southern California-based group Justice4MJ. B ut she said the focus should remain on Murray, who is charged with involuntary manslaughter and who authorities allege gave Jackson a lethal dose of the anesthetic propofol and others edatives. The Houstonbased cardiologist has pleade d not guilty. Superior Court Judge Michael Pastor has already limited what information Murrays defense attorneysc an introduce about Jackson during the trial, excluding any details from the singers 2005 child molestation trial, which ended in acquittal, hisf inancial troubles, and witnesses who might describe the singer as a drug addict. The rulings have drawn p raise from fans and court watchers alike, but may have limited effect in the era ofb logs and social media. For some salacious news o rganizations and the blogosphere, there wont be a check on fairness, said BenH olden, director of the Reynolds National Center for the Courts and Media. E ditors and producers have long acted similar to j udges by deciding what details are necessary or irrelevant for news coverage, said Holden, a former Wall Street Journal reporter anda ttorney who attended Murrays preliminary hearing. Blogs and social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook, which are now news sources, present newc hallenges. It has always been the c ase that the jurors neighbors had information that the juror didnt have, Holden said. Yet nowadays, the neighbor doesnt just getW alter Cronkite, he also gets Nancy Grace and TMZ. Potentially skewed posts from fans also have to be considered, Holden said. M any fan groups have active Twitter profiles and Facebook pages, including those aimed at providing e xplanatory content on the trial. One such site, P ositivelyMichael.com, has a forum focused on the M urray case and other aspects of Jacksons death that has nearly 9,500 posts.M oderator Lynn Mathis said the site has become an international destination for u pdates on the case. e have members all o ver the world, Mathis said. This trial will not be covered there the way it is here. Similar to the efforts by U .S.-based fans, international groups are closely watching their domestic media for stories they feel treat the singer unfairly. One such group, MJ4Justice, has founders from three nations:t he U.S., Ireland and Canada. Grace, who has been critic ized for comments advocating the conviction of Florida mother Casey Anthony inh er recent murder trial, is one of the television pundits J ackson fans say they are concerned about. Ajury acquitted Anthony o f killing her 2-year-old daughter earlier this year and Murrays attorneys have c ited Graces commentary as a primary reason jurors in M urrays case should be sequestered. Pastor refused. HLN, which airs Graces show, is already offering significant coverage of theJ ackson manslaughter trial. The network also airs a show hosted by commentator Dr. Drew Pinsky, who has devoted several segments to the trial and who Jacobs and other fans criticized forf ocusing on sensational aspects of Jacksons life. e dont feel that its relevant that these talkingh eads like Nancy Grace and Dr. Drew get on every night and further degrade a dead mans legacy, Jacobs said. Pinsky addressed the fan r eaction on a recent show: Please, guys. I dont have a strong feeling about this. Im not trying to protect anybody. Im just trying to makes ense of it so we can all understand this case as we go through it. The group Team Michael has distributed a press release calling for coverageo f the Murray case that does not malign the pop superstar. It is NOTWacko Jacko, It is MICHAELJACKSON! the release reads in part. Iti s NOTPedophile, It is Humanitarian! T aaj Malik, who helped coordinate the release, said the point is to keep the media focused on whats happening in Pastors court-r oom. Its not Michael on trial, its Conrad Murray s he said. In addition to fans wanting to protect Jacksonsm emory, also potentially at stake is the image behind c ontinued success of the singers posthumous marketability, which has gener-a ted more than $310 million since his death. Manny Medrano, an attorn ey and former television reporter who regularly comm ents on high-profile cases, said he expects most of the media overall to report Murrays trial fairly. Despite the issues the Anthony caser aised with punditry shaping public opinion of a trial, Murrays case wont be a repeat, he said. This case is not of that level, Medrano said, noting that prosecutors arent seek-i ng a murder conviction against Murray and that despite Jacksons international stardom, the singer isa different type of victim than young Caylee Anthony. Pastors rulings have limited Murrays defense, but Medrano said that wontm ean that the portrait that emerges of Jackson is pristine. There is negative evidence about this pop star that the jury is going toh ear, he said. Aformer federal prosecutor, Medrano now practices criminal defense and said the physicians attorneys have an ethical obligation to raisea ny viable theory that may exonerate Murray. Theyre d oing their job, he said. That wont make it any easier on Jacksons support-e rs, or his family, who are expected to attend most of t he proceedings. Jermaine Jackson told The Associated Press that he expects Murrays attorney to try to smear his brother. They are going to try that, he said, adding that he p enned his new book You Are Not Alone in part as a rebuttal to defense argu-m ents that his brother was weakened by an addiction to t he painkiller Demerol. There may have been dependency on Demerol,w hich was for pain, but thats not what killed Michael, Jermaine Jackson s aid. Jackson fans have a simil ar mission, one they expect will lead to long hours of fact-checking reports in the coming weeks. Michaels not here to d efend himself, said Millie Freeman, the New Yorkbased co-founder of the group MJ4Justice. Its up to his family and up to his fans. This is a matter of the mans legacy at this point,s he said. It needs to be respected.

C M Y K By CHRISTYLEMIRE APMovie CriticYou dont have to know about VORPor WHIP, or OPS to enjoy Moneyball, the story ofh ow a bunch of stat geeks changed the way baseball teams assess and acquire players. Sure, it helps if youre a f an of the sport and if youve read Michael Lewis b reezy and engaging bestseller Moneyball: The Arto f Winning an Unfair Game. Sabermetrics the process of applying statistical formulas, rather than onfield appearance and generalm akeup, to determine a players worth wouldnt seem like an inherently cinematic topic. But Lewis made lesser-known guys like ScottH atteberg and Chad Bradford leap off the page. And the cajoling patter from Billy Beane, the Oakland As general manager who pioneered this experimental philosophy, would seem tailormade for screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, who co-wrote the script along with fellow veteran scribe Steven Zaillian. Still, whats most pleasing about the film doesnt really have to do with baseball. As Beane, Brad Pitt is at his charismatic best a little weary, a little weathered, but that complexity only makes him more appealing. Hes persistent and persuasive as he tries to change the mindset of the baseball lifers who surround him. We see him rage in his infamously volatile fashion when things go wrong, but we also see him make himself vulnerable: Hes embracing this approach as a result of his own failure. Tall, good-looking and naturally athletic a fivetool guy, as they say Beane was a highly-touted high school prospect who turned down a scholarship to Stanford to play for the New York Mets. But his professional career was brief, and he never lived up to the hype. This inspired him to value players for more pragmatic reasons than the traditional methods old-school scouts use. The most important thing, he reasoned, is getting on base. And some of the players who get on base most often happen to be undervalued, perhaps older or a little banged-up, and they come at bargain prices which is crucial when youve got a fraction of the payroll of big-market teams. As he ventures into this brave new world at the starto f the 2002 season, having lost in agonizing fashion to the New York Yankees in the 2001 post-season, his trusty sidekick is Peter Brand, a 25-year-old Yale economics graduate and follower of sabermetrics guru Bill James. (The character is an amalgamation of several young, up-and-coming baseball executives who subscribed to this belief). Jonah Hill is at his best here, too, as Brand: the perfect foil for a force of nature like Beane. Halting and almost humorless, Hill ultimately finds the quiet confidence in this character, and he and Pitt bounce off each other beautifully. The scenes in which they banter represent the best Moneyball has to offer. Yes, theyre talking about baseball, but the intelligence of their interactions and the bond they forge transcend sport. And watching them upend a bastion of American culture can be thrilling. Similarly, though, the things that are wrong with the movie have nothing to do with baseball, either. Insiders and hardcore fans will probably find reasons to nitpick, as is their wont; if theres a group of people more obsessed with details and arcania than movie nerds, its baseball nerds. But more fundamentally, theres a problem with the pacing in director Bennett Millers film. Millers feature debut was Capote, which earned Philip Seymour Hoffman a best-actor Oscar (and Hoffman shows up here in a barely developed role as As manager Art Howe, who b ucks Beane at every opportunity). As rich a character study as Capote was, it also offered suspense as it traced the authors rise andf all. Moneyball never feels like its building toward anything, even if you know how the As season unfolded that year. It playso ut in starts and stops, and then all of a sudden, were i n the midst of the teams historic 20-game win streak. P erhaps this is a product of the scripts development in pieces, with Zaillian starting it, Steven Soderbergh (who initially was set tod irect) revising it and Sorkin submitting the final draft. Whatever the cause, the end result often feels disjointed. Asubplot involving B eanes daughter, which wasnt part of the book, also seems like a wedged-in device to humanize him. And ultimately it seems odd to romanticize this figure who sought to strip the sport of its long-held romanticism. But like the As themselves at this time, Moneyball has enough unlikely pieces that do work and it generates enough underdog goodwill to make you want to stick around for the final out. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, September 23, 2011Page 11B FAIRMONT CINEMA; 1.736"; 6"; Black; 9/23/11; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 2 2 1 1 5 5 7 7 DIVERSIONS DearAbby: I am a flight attendant for a majorc arrier.

Thats clearly the point of them, but it woulds eem to be just as painful to be the butter as the butt ee. In Killer Elite, this is probably the most primal m ethod of attack on display, but even the noisy intensity and frequency of the skull bashings and pistol whippings and gutp unches dont register as anything beyond generic action-picture violence. The fact that director and co-writer GaryM cKendry has shot all these brawls with the u sual shaky cam and cut them in quick, choppyf ashion only adds to how forgettable the film is. And youd think that any movie starring Robert De Niro, Clive Owen andJ ason Statham would be one youd want to remember. Killer Elite allows them to show off some oft he presence and personality that made these men major movie stars, but ultimately theyre just cogs in a clichid revenge tale. Statham stars as Danny, the typical special-ops, killing-machine-for-hire Statham tends to play. At the films start in 1979, he and his mentor, Hunter (De Niro wait for their target in an industrial section of Mexico. The assignment goes horribly wrong and Danny swears swears! this is it for him, the last one, hes done. But we all know how these things turn out: There has to be that triedand-true One Last Job. Otherwise, there would be no movie. Statham, like the film itself, is muscular and efficient. But he seems awfully comfortable playing this kind of part by now, and he has such a brash, intriguing presence, he makes you wonder what else hed be capable of doing if he stretched and challenged himself. De Niro stays locked up for big chunks of the movie but when we do see him, he radiates the ease and comfort of a man who has nothing to prove. And he gets to fire a machine gun, which is probably a lot of fun when youre pushing 70, and might make Killer Elite more memorable for him than it will be for the audience.

C M Y K LIVING 12B PA GE News-Sun Friday, September 23, 2011 Set a good example and teach your kids and teens to be mobile manners superstars with these simple tips:Be present.Give the people you are with your full attention. We can give a better impression with simple eye contact, and lets be honest, that email, text message or tweet can wait a few minutes.Small moments matter.If your actions will impact those around you at the restaurant or the store, reconsider replying to that email while checking out until youre in your parked car. Practice what you preach.If it bothers you when your kids use a mobile device in the car, be sure to consider that the next time youre in the car and want to send a message or play Angry Birds to pass the time. Photo courtesy of Getty ImagesF AMILYFEATURES Kids ages 8 to 12 are spending as much as two to three hours each day on mobile devices such as laptops, netbooks, tablets or smartphones, according to a recent survey by Intel. That translates into a significant amount of time that parents can use to take advantage of teachable moments to reinforce good etiquette and safety. Practicing good manners is not a new concept to kids, but when it comes to using mobile devices, what makes for good manners is not always so clear. After all, the parent who doesnt allow his children to have cell phones at the dinner table but himself checks email throughout the meal on his smartphone is sending a mixed message. The same Intel Mobile Etiquette survey showed that 59 percent of children have witnessed their parents commit common mobile infractions, including use of a mobile device on the road, at dinner and during a movie or concert. Children look to their parents as examples in all things, and technology is no exception. Parents who hop off the phone when checking out at the grocery store and refrain from sending emails during a childs soccer game can effectively demonstrate the appropriate times and places for mobile interaction. Establishing guidelines and setting expectations that all members of the household adhere to can go a long way toward promoting good mobile manners. Here are some tips from author and etiquette expert Anna Post of The Emily Post Institute:Determine house rules. As a family, discuss ground rules for how youll each use or not use mobile devices. Set boundaries for mobile usage in the car, at restaurants and during special events, such as family movie night. Parents, be willing to limit your behavior, too, such as, Mom, no texting during my soccer games, or, Dad, no calls during family movie night.Create a policy that prohibits sharing words or images that would embarrass another person or get them into trouble.Respect requests to silence mobile devices in public places, such as the movie theater or doctors office. Reinforce school policies regarding use of mobile devices during school hours and at school-sanctioned activities. Safety SavvyModeling good behavior and clearly defining rules are also important when it comes to mobile devices and safety. When good mobile manners are not practiced, technology can be used by individuals with unsavory intentions to threaten the privacy and safety of the entire family. There are several steps parents can take to protect the entire familys physical safety and privacy:Use technology to engage with each other. Visit websites together to learn what your kids are looking at online and why.Place the family computer in an open, central location so children arent isolated while using technology.Set age-appropriate restrictions on mobile Internet usage, whether through your mobile carrier, parental control settings or guidelines that you establish and monitor.Strictly adhere to the laws in your state regarding phone use while driving, and never email or text behind the wheel. The surge in mobile device usage among all ages has created a new level of connectivity. A2011 report from the Pew Internet and American Life Project stated that 85 percent of U.S. adults own a cell phone, 52 percent own a laptop computer, 4 percent own a tablet, and only 9 percent do not own any of these or other devices covered in the study. However, rules around using this technology are still being determined. Said Genevieve Bell, Intel Fellow and head of interaction and experience research, Intel Labs: Mobile technology is still relatively novel. After all, it was just 8 years ago that Intel integrated WiFi into the computer with its IntelCentrinoprocessor technology, thus enabling the unwired laptop. Smart phones, tablets and other mobile devices are really still in their infancy, so its no surprise that people still struggle with how to best integrate these devices into their lives. Following these tips allows parents and kids to stay connected and enjoy the positive benefits of technology, while teaching good manners and protecting the entire family.
