Stephens Jr., president. T he Board of Trustees voted Wednesday to call the school South Florida State College to reflect thea ddition of a four-year bachelors degree program approved by the F lorida Board of Education last week. The college opened in 1965 under the name of South Florida Junior C ollege and changed to South Florida Community C ollege in 1984. The recent approval from the state prompted the name change and a slightc hange in the college mission statement, Stephens said, but the Florida L egislature still has to approve the name this spring, and the governor has to sign off as well. e dont anticipate any problems and we are moving forward, Stephenss aid.

On Tuesday, the Health D epartment received confirmation that a fox tested positive for the deadly disease. T he fox was located on North Avon Boulevard. Health Department officials are advising that residents within the geographical area of Avon Park should follow precautionary measures. Rabies is fatal in humans if not treated in time, and as a precaution, the Health Department advised everyone in the area who has been exposed to any stray animals, or even if their own pet has been exposed, to call Animal Control at 655-6475. For medical recommendations and questions regarding rabies, call the Highlands County Health Department at 382-7219. Health Department Director Robert Palussek advised that individuals should avoid direct contact with wild animals, such as raccoons, bats and foxes, and that all dogs and cats should be immunized against rabies. The public should immediately report any animals running at large. Prompt and complete reporting of all animal bites sustained by any individual is also essential, according the press release, and only qualified personnel are advised to handle infected animals.

How do you like them apples? B y SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING The Palms of Sebring kicked off the 15th annual Apple and Harvest Festival Thursday morning bright and early. The festival will continue through Saturday giving patrons the opportunity to get in the spirit of autumn, which is why the event was created in the first place according to the man behind the festival, Lester Kesselring. It all sort of got started when the Palms began looking for an event to share with the community. My wife and I would always go up to Georgia and Carolina during the fall and we kept running into people from Highlands County. Then I thought, well why dont we just bring fall to the people in Sebring, said Kesselring. The Apple and Harvest Festival had been born.

C M Y K Id sit alone and watch your light My only friend through teenage nights Everything I had to knowI heard it on my radio In much of the western world, the days of children gathering around radios, as Roger Taylor wrote in the hitQ ueen song Radio Ga Ga, are long gone. In an age of iPods, iPhones and SiriusXM, antenna radios once strong signal is fading rapidly. In Iraq, which has been in a perpetual state of war for three decades, many children still congregate around radios. It is in Baghdad, where Saddam Husseins iron fist was left on the ash heap of history, that Staff Sgt. Brad Ruffin has served since December. Staff Sgt. Ruffin, 42, served in the Marines before joining the Army. This soldier is ready for battle. Yet while deployed to the Iraqi capital, one of his most important jobs has been entertaining U.S. troops and Iraqi citizens on American Forces Network-Iraqs Freedom Radio. With the number of American boots on the ground shrinking by the day in the midst of a continuing U.S. withdrawal, AFN-Iraq is shutting down. While speaking with the Unknown Soldiers from Baghdad just hours before its final broadcast, Ruffin reflected on the stations legacy. I guess for me, being on the radio during this deployment is the one thing Im going to reflect on most, the soldier said. Hopefully someone out there maybea little kid it inspired them to become a musician or get into TV Radio, whats new? Someone still loves you The first song ever played on Freedom Radio, as the Iraq war took shape in 2003, was Paul McCartneys Freedom. The last was Toby Keiths Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue on Sept. 23, 2011. Ruffin is proud of what the radio station meant to warravaged Iraq. The locals are appreciative, he said. Ive been talking about this to other troops who I come in contact with. Still, the Plano, Texas, soldier desperately misses his wife and child. They are waiting near Charlotte, N.C., for his return, which is expected sometime this fall. Sometimes its frustrating to be away from home, Ruffin admitted. But its great to be helping others out. As soldiers with the Armys 206th Broadcast Operations Detachment spent months taking phone, email and Facebook song requests from around the world, Ruffin realized the continuing power of music, which connected troops and their families through the spirit of radio. People in the United States are asleep, and they wake up in the middle of the night to get a message to their son or daughter, he explained. Or even a soldier thats returned home theyll call or email to requesta song. Ruffin, who knows firsthand about the stress of deployments, was deeply moved by the burst of patriotic enthusiasm. That stuff blows me away, Ruffin said. These people are obviously either staying up or waking up just t o let us know how much they appreciate what were doing here. Hours before Freedom Radios swan song in Iraq,r equests were still pouring in on Facebook from the home of the brave. Im sending a shout-out to my son stationed in Iraq, Spc.J ustin Buderer, Lynn Buderer posted on Sept. 23.

C M Y K Associated PressCOLUMBIA, S.C. S outh Carolina Republican Party Chairman Chad Connelly says hell wait to see what Florida does before announcing a date for theP almetto States presidential primary. F lorida is poised to hold its presidential primary Jan. 31. C onnelly said Thursday if Florida insists on breaking R epublican rules and moving up the nominating contests, then South Carolina and other three traditional early-voting states will movet heir dates too. He says South Carolina will preserve i ts first-in-the-South primary, no matter what. But Connelly says he wont be f orced by what he called rogue states to break the r ules first. Adate earlier than March 6 for all but Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada would violateR epublican Party rules. A Republican National C ommittee vote last year allowed those four to vote in February. Special to the News-SunIf we are not fighting a wildfire, we are trying to prevent one from happening, said Wildfire Mitigation Specialist, Melissa Yunas from the Florida Forest Service. We are burning, mowing or chopping the thick, dense vegetation in and near communities to create firebreaks and reduce the fuel loading. The Florida Forest Service conducts wildfire mitigation projects to reduce the risk of catastrophic wildfires. The vegetation can be managed to help reduce the size and potential damage of wildfires, Yunas said. We have been focusing our attention on the high risk communities. Recent wildfire mitigation in Highlands County communities include Highlands Park, Leisure Lakes and Sun n Lake near Sebring. In Highlands Park, the Forest Service has mowed 2 1/2 miles of firebreaks, protecting numerous homes in the community. Some of the treated area is being prepped for a prescribed fire (depending on weather). e are cleaning the forest floor of dead or decaying vegetation ripe for fire, said Yunas. When a forest grows too wild a purging fire is inevitable and natural. Aprescribed fire is a safe way to apply a natural process, ensure ecosystem health and reduce wildfire risk. In Leisure Lakes, the Forest Service has mowed around several homes and treated a total of five acres. Two areas are currently being prepped for a prescribed fire. The next community for wildfire mitigation is Sun n Lake of Sebring. That community (depending on weather) will possibly be prepped for a prescribed fire. How do we pick communities at risk? We look at historical fire occurrences and fuel loading (vegetation density, size and continuity). e cant treat every vacant lot so we look at areas where a disastrous wildfire can occur and we try to minimize that risk, Yunas said. And what about the animals? The land that we are mowing, burning and chopping is so dense and overgrown that sunlight cant reach the forest floor. Layers of dead vegetation stifle any new growth for the animals to forge. Fire cleans off the dead vegetation, enriches the soil and adds a buffet of new sprouts to entice forging animals, Yunas said. The Florida Forest Service is working hard to protect the community. Now is the time to take a careful look at your home and see what you can do. Residents living in or near brush or wooded areas should make their homes as safe as possible from the threat of wildfires. Anyone needing additional information may contact the local Florida Forest Service at 655-6407 or visit the website at www.fl-dof.com/. Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Local officials across Florida are scrambling to repeal gun con-t rol ordinances, including bans on firearms in parks, buildings and other public places, before a new state law goes into effect. I t adds penalties to an existing statute that requires governments at the local level to follow state gun laws, which are generally less restrictive.T he pre-emption law has often been ignored until now. The gun legislation is one o f 29 new laws that become effective Saturday. Some of the others will m ake it more difficult for girls seeking abortions to get w aivers from the states parental notification requirement, limit medical malprac-t ice lawsuits, outlaw sex with animals and reduce sexting p enalties for minors. The gun law has caused consternation in city halls and county boardrooms. e can restrict having c lubs, flame throwers and hand grenades, but when it c omes to firearms, we cant restrict them, said Kraig Conn, legislative counsel fort he Florida League of Cities. The law imposes what C onn called Draconian penalties for violating the 1987 pre-emption statute that c overs ammunition as well as firearms. It merely says you have to f ollow the law and if you dont follow the law there are c onsequences, said the laws sponsor, Rep. Matt Gaetz, RFort Walton Beach. T he National Rifle Association pushed for the n ew legislation, saying cities and counties were ignoring the pre-emption law because it had no penalties. City and county officials c ould be fined up to $5,000 if they failed to repeal a pree mpted gun ordinance or try to enforce it. They also wont be able to use taxpayer fundst o defend themselves or pay the fines. Violators also could b e fired or removed from office by the governor. Individuals and groups such as NRAcould sue to challenge local laws. If they win, they could collect attorney fees and damages up to$ 100,000 from cities and counties. Openly carrying firearms already is banned by state law, so pre-empted ordi-n ances in most cases affected guns carried by more than a million Floridians who have concealed weapons permits. State law also already bans c oncealed weapons from schools, courthouses, and the Florida Capitol and local gov-e rnment buildings when the bodies are meeting. Conn said there still are s ome questions about exactly what is pre-empted but most j urisdictions are repealing ordinances if theres any doubt. W est Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio had been poised to t est the law through an executive order banning guns in city hall, but changed her mind. Instead, she has ordered p olice to escort armed visitors in the building. The most r estrictive local laws tend to be in the more urbanized areas. One size doesnt fit all when it comes to our count ies, said Cragin Mosteller, spokeswoman for the Florida Association of Counties. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, September 30, 2011Page 3A M ARTIAL ARTS (pp r hp only pg 3 or 5; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 1 1 5 5 8 8 9 9 CRAFTY QUILTERS****; 3.639"; 2"; Black; 9/30/11; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 2 2 3 3 8 8 0 0 C OWPOKES WATERING HOLE; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black plus three; process, 9/30/11; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 2 2 3 3 8 8 6 6 C ourtesy photo Areas with dead vegetation like this are prime candidates for wildfire.

C M Y K Thin skinned and not very powerful, relatively speak-i ng, humans have done best by grouping together and working toward commong oals. At the same time we humans have been blessedw ith curiosity, compassion and ambition. These give us a d rive to improve our own every day circumstances, and work to alleviate the suffer-i ng of others. As our numbers grew over t ime, we evolved from nuclear families, to clans, to city states, to nations, to alliances and networks of nations. W e have learned to apportion work and work together i n teams, creating increasingly complicated governments and sets of laws in order top rovide the most peace and prosperity to the most people. A s we all know, however, not every individual works well with others, or is p atient, or content with a share of a whole. There are people who simply refuse to comply with laws meant to protect life,e nsure fairness, and curb corruption; or who believe themselves to be above the law; orw ho feel justified in doing things their own way. Recently the county comm ission discovered four policies had not been followed regarding the program tos hred tires at the landfill. In talks with commissioners, the N ews-Sun found most were not upset that rules hadnt been followed as long ast hey were obeyed the future. Staff intentions were good, t he commissioners said, lets just move ahead. No harm was meant, in other words, so why make a fuss? But heres the point: While w e understand why commissioners arent eager to take a ction, we worry about the consequences of letting things slide. T hat doesnt mean the News-Sun supports yet a nother investigation, or is looking to punish someone we just dont think the situ ation should go unconsidered or without comment. Part of the problem the rules that werent observed is the chief county engineersr ecent admission he was unfamiliar with the countys p rocurement procedures. He i snt the only one. Avon Parks Community Redevelopment Agency director admitted this week to not knowing his citys purc hasing policies. This is why mistakes were made and delays happened, they both said. It seems about time the various Highlands County g overnments review what their staff know and who needs more education. Aftera ll, if an ordinary citizen breaks a law, ignorance is not c onsidered an excuse. Why should ignorance get a public e mployee off the hook? Especially when what they do is governed by written r ules and set procedures they should know by heart. We think continuing seminars, covering relevant policies, procedures and Floridas sunshine laws, should become a regular part of every governments staff training. W e hope our local leaders begin to hold public employe es to a higher standard when it comes to following the law, beginning with themselves not the least of an elected o fficials responsibilities is setting an example. Not reacting when a probl em is apparent and dismissi ng botched work as unimportant is a sure fire way to c reate more trouble in the future. Individual freedom is a tremendous gift weve given to ourselves but it onlyf lourishes when the group is stable and everyone has h ope. Humans invented government to provide that stability,w hich is why it is so important for our governments to f ollow their own rules.

Their public spats are simply giving Barack Obama juicy material for his TVads in the general election in2 012. Moreover, they have managed to transform a previously politically unknown pizza mogul, Herman Cain, into a real player in the presidential sweepstakes and given a lot of publicity to his socalled 9-9-9 Plan, which lays out his means to get this nation back on track. Cains 9-9-9 Plan is taking hold of the publics attention because of its simplicity and clarity. Its easy to understand and you dont have to read a book to grasp its essentials. Romney and Perry need to adopt the old standard of keeping it simple, stupid. The public has neither the time nor the will to wrestle with complex political propositions. With all the focus on book passages, Perry and Romney have also given Newt Gingrich a new lease on his political life. Newt doesnt waste his time prattling about literature. He doesnt direct you to some pages in some book. Instead, he answers questions directly and without waffling. He also has a vision of what America can be under the right leadership. He has something Perry and Romney a ppear to lack a vision of an America reborn and the ways to get there;P rofessor Gingrich provides t hat without being professorial. Republicans h ave certain core values we b elieve in small and limited government, legitimate statesrights,a nd in adhering to the principles enunciated in the Constitution. Those values e nshrouded in the Constitution have transf ormed what was once a collection of frontier communities into historys wealthiest and most powerful nation. Candidates fort he Republican presidential nomination need to prove they understand exactly what the Constitution demands of them and show they are willing and able to conform to those demands. N owadays, politics has come to be seen as just a nother spectator sport, like football or baseball. We treat candidates as players in a sport, chalking up their hits, runs ande rrors. Unlike sports, however, politics affects the lives and futures of every single American. Unfortunately, unlikeV egas, what happens in Washington doesnt stay in Washington it hits us exactly where we live. The media are no help in giving us the information we need to make informed judgments about candidates. Instead, many in the so-called mainstream media have allowed themselves to become cheerleaders for leftist political candidates and causes. They need to be reined in by an alert public and forced to fulfill their responsibilities as news sources, and not as advocates for one side or the other. These are the sort of solid issues with which the candidates need to be dealing. So far they are not doing so. Until they do its hard to take them seriously. And, like it or not, politics is serious business. Michael Reagan is the son of President Ronald Reagan, a political consultant, and the author of The New Reagan Revolution. He is the founder and chairman of The Reagan Group and president of The Reagan Legacy Foundation. Visit his website at www.reagan.com, or e-mail him at Reagan@caglecartoons.com/. Get serious! Making Sense Michael Reagan Government should follow its own rules Being human isnt easy. Not only do we get wet in the rain, hungry every few hours, and have to sleep every day, it hurts to walk barefoot. Disruptiveness is a clear signEditor: On Saturday, I attended the hearing on the proposed Everglades Headwaters National Wildlife Refuge and Conservation Area at South Florida Community College. At that meeting, people representing many viewpoints spoke. There were ranchers and scientists, conservationists and sportsmen, all with strongly held opinions. Some ground rules had been laid down at the beginning. Each person had just three minutes to speak. The audience was to remain quiet while each person was speaking. No laughing, no talking, no noises, no matter how much someone might disagree. Each person was to have the same fair chance to express an opinion. Everyone in the audience, with three exceptions, followed those rules. The three people who did not were all sitting together. They were two men and a woman of retirement age, dressed in the clothes we usually associate with snowbirds. All through the other speakerscomments, they were constantly talking and making noises, snickering, snorting, or laughing out loud when a speaker made a point they didnt care for. They were the only people in the auditorium to exhibit this kind of behavior. Everyone else treated the other speakers with respect, even when they obviously disagreed. The disruptiveness of these three people grew so bad that I swiveled around in my seat and glared at them with my very best church lady look. It didnt work. They continued to be noisy and rude, even after I mouthed at them: Would you please be quiet? This behavior of theirs continued as long as I was at the meeting. Then one of the men in that group got up himself to speak, and gave his name the name of a major local Tea Party supporter. Can we be surprised? Tea Party supporters are noted nationwide for disrupting meetings. They seem to think that no one else but them should be able to express an opinion. The rules that apply to other people just dont apply to them. In fact, the woman in that small Tea Party group even talked on her cell phone while her friend was speaking Oh yes, and he ran over his three minutes, too. An old rule says that if you want to know who someone is, watch what they do, not what they say. I say this incident shows what sorts of people really join the Tea Party and what it really stands for. Charlotte Pressler SebringBad business in Avon ParkEditor: I read where there was tax owed ($28,000Avon Park, yet they give him jobs in the city with outstanding tax debt. Now, could we as people get away with this? I am thinking the recall in Avon Park should have went forward. Being criminal is one thing but being an elected or appointed officalknowing of this matter is criminal in itself. Avon Park is going to spend tax money to a non-paying tax business?

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comThroughout a long season, coaches often need to try new ploys to get their message across. Amid a bit of a leadership crisis for the Lady Blue Streaks, Tuesdays district-opening match at Kathleen seemed a good a time as any for head coach Vanessa Sinness to try a new one. I wasnt sure how good Kathleen was coming in, she said. But during warm-ups, I could see they were very athletic, but not really skilled, volleyball-wise. I didnt think wed have much trouble against them, so I sat on the bench the whole night and didnt say a word. I decided to let them coach themselves and see how theyd respond. If the scoring were any indication, they responded well, as the Streaks rolled to 25-13, 25-17 and 25-15 wins in the three-set sweep. And while happy with the result, Sinness knows more work needs to be done. e didnt play that well, still, though Kaley (Walter) and Stephanie (Struck as leaders and took the reins, she said. But there are still some issues within the team. Some infighting and lack of confidence, but those are things well work through, because we definitely have the talent. It was a start, but the real test is Thursday That test was a home match against district heavyweight Winter Haven, who trounced Lake Gibson Tuesday by 25-11, 25-10 and 25-19 scores. Another team going through a rough stretch, the Lady Red Devils of Avon Park got back on the winning track Tuesday night. Having lost four in a row, a trip to Mulberry turned out to be just what the doctor ordered as Stephanie Devlins squad rolled to a three-set sweep over the Lady Panthers, 25-6, 25-12 and 25-9. e told them, no matter who we play, no matter how good they are, just play to the best of your ability, Devlin said. This is the best team Ive had, but the worst record Ive had. Were making adjustments to find the right six and hopefully this will be the start of our turnaround. Highlighting the win was recent junior varsity call-up Otisha Smith, who served up seven consecutive points with five aces. Avon Park was at DeSoto Thursday night in district play.

The Lady Dragons took care of business Tuesday night with a four-set win over Frostproof. By FRED GOODALL Associated PressST. PETERSBURG A startling comeback on the final day of the regular season carried the Tampa Bay Rays back to the playoffs. Their chances of claiming the ALwild card in jeopardy, the Rays rallied Wednesday night from a late seven-run d eficit to beat the New York Yankees 8-7 on Evan Longorias 12th-inning homer. Throughout an improbable run for a third postseason berth in four years, manager Joe Maddon and his players talked about the unwavering faith they had in themselves and the prospect of making up nine games on Boston in the wild card standings. They caught the Red Sox on Tuesday and remained tied heading into the regulars eason finale. Trailing 7-0 in the eighth inning, though, Matt Joyce conceded some doubt crept into his mind. s hard to say no. For a little bit there, there was, Joyce said. But at the same time, you still have to go out there. And were still playing hard, were still playing to win, and you never know w hats going to happen in the game of baseball. ...

Page 3B Special to the News-SunSEBRING Sebring Youth Football and Cheer played some serious football this past weekend, as the Blue Streaks were at home against the Lakeland Saints. Though there were mixed reviews on the day with three wins and two losses. The Streaks started off strong with a win in the Flag division, coached by David Young. They played an awesome game with a 34-0 victory over the Saints. Some great performances from players who have been practicing hard, such as Jordan Gregory, Landon Young, Kaleb Reed, Blaine Garza, Austin Cox and Clayton Wadlinger, and for the rest of the team who participated in a team effort, allowed these players to put points on the board. The Mitey Mite division, coached by Chris Gilbert, were next to take the field and the game was a nail-biter. It was tied all the way until the last seconds of the game, when Lakeland ran the ball back for a final score of 12-6. The Blue Streak Senior Boys, coached by Bronson Smith, rarely disappoint and put on a show with a shutout, against the Saints for a final score of 32-0. The Pee Wee team, coached by Carlos Cardoso, came out strong, putting another shutout on the record with a final score of 40-0. The last game of the day for the Blue Streaks were the Juniors, coached by Bob Duncan. This team was down to 13 players on this Saturday but, these players gave it their all, playing all four quarters on both offense and defense. But they were not able to pull out the win with a final of 41-0. The Blue Streak Cheerleaders were out in full force as well and showed spirit for all their teams. The Thunderbolts were on the road playing the Lee County Storm. The Bolts had a clean sweep, winning four out of four games. First to take the field was the Flag team, coached by Jeremy Daugherty. His offense was clicking on all cylinders and the defense stayed strong, ending the game with a safety to SYF adds more wins See BOLTS, Page 3B By DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comThe lulls would not do them in this night, though it is a concern for LadyD ragon head coach Linette Wells. For though her squad picked up another districtw in over the Lady Bulldogs of Frostproof T uesday night, Wells saw some issues. We played down and had our usual unforced e rrors, she said. We didt communicate and our serves and hits were off. Which also speaks to the teams ability, for even as this was happening, Lake Placid was rolling off 25-18 and 25-17 wins in the first two sets. With the comfortable lead in the match, Wells sought to experiment some, not completely at ease with the performance on the court. I made my substitutions in the third set and they were just not in it, she said. I couldnt find that special six tonight. That lead to the lone l oss of the night, a 25-23 Bulldog win. But with a little more tinkering, a good enough six came together to close out the match with a 25-16 win. It was very frustrating to watch, because they are a much better team than they have been playing lately, Wells said. But I have faith in them. They will turn this around and play like the team I know they are. T he win moves the Dragon record to 7-2 and 3-1 in district play. They will be back in action Tuesday, with a dis-t rict match against visiting Mulberry before hoping to atone for their lone district loss Thursday, at DeSoto. Lake Placid plays down in win I couldnt find that special six tonight. LINETTEWELLS Lake Placid head coach Lady Streaks guide selves to sweep

Unbelievable. Evan Longoria capped the c omeback by hitting his second home run of the game, hooking a drive barely inside the left-field foul pole in the 12th inning. Pinch-hitter Dan Johnson saved the Rays with a twoout, two-strike solo home run down the right field line in the ninth that made it 7-all. At no point was I thinking, Oh, man, I have to hit this ball over the fence.Its just one of those things that it just happened. I was up there trying to get on base, Johnson said. It was actually a pretty good pitch. Its just, you know, the stars were aligned. I was able to get the barrel on it and keep it fair Longoria connected shortly after midnight, four minutes after Boston blew a ninth-inning lead and lost at Baltimore 4-3. If the Red Sox had held on, a one-game tiebreaker would have been played at Tropicana Field on Thursday. s a good feeling knowing that one put us into the playoffs and not into a playoff game, Longoria said. So Im just thinking about, Wow, did this just really happen?... Man, when I saw it clear the fence it didnt seem real. The crowd of 29,518 at Tropicana Field was mostly silent as the Rays trailed 7-0 going into the eighth. But Longorias three-run homer finished a six-run burst in the eighth and Johnson, hitting only .108, tied it with a shot off Cory Wade. Longoria connected off Scott Proctor (0-3 Proctor was the Yankees 11th pitcher of the game they did not use all-time career saves leader Mariano Rivera. I was imploring for a touchdown and a two-point conversion at that point, Maddon said. Of course, I always think we have a shot. ... Because their bullpen was not going to be their normal bullpen, that permitted us to do that. If they have (Rafael Soriano, (David and Rivera available, that doesnt happen. The fans roared when the Red Sox loss was posted on the scorecard. Moments later, they erupted again when Longoria homered. s a storybook finish, designated hitter Johnny Damon said. Definitely gratifying. The Rays will open the first round of the ALplayoffs on Friday at Texas. They also met the Rangers in the ALDS a year ago, losing in five games. e really had everybody play their part and come through, so its something special, Joyce said. We have a special group of guys. Theres something magical about us, and its fun to be a part of it. The Yankees pulled their regulars throughout the game and finished with a lineup that looked more like a Triple-Ateam. The emotion of the day was something you cant dream up when you look at the schedule, Yankees star Alex Rodriguez said. Longoria had a magical night. Theyre very dangerous because they have good pitching. Moments before Tampa Bay won, it looked as if Boston would instead be going to the playoffs. The Orioles were down to t heir last strike in the ninth b efore scoring twice off Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon. The Rays, meanwhile, e scaped a first-and-third, noout jam in the 12th. L ongoria made the key play, fielding a grounder at third and making a snap tag to catch the runner diving back to the base. eird. Just when you think youve see it all, Yankees captain Derek Jeter said. Its one of those days. You have a team down seven runs in the eighth and Boston winning. It was very bizarre. Mark Teixeira hit a grand slam off All-Star David Price and a solo homer as the Yankees built their big lead. The crowd lingered in the stands after the game ended and celebrated with players, who returned from the clubhouse to spray fans behind the dugout and along the railings with champagne. That was one of the best days in baseballs history, probably, Teixeira said. I really cant believe it. I think the fans should be excited. Continued from 1B Rays rally caps wild final night make the final score 30-6. Next up were the Mitey Mite Bolts, coached by Ron Shiflet. Beckham Donovan scored on a 4-yard QB sneak for 6-0 win, thanks to the awesome defense shutting out another opponent. The Mitey Mite defense has only given up three touchdowns all season. For the Thunderbolts, the nail biter game came by way of the Pee Wee team, coached by Ira Hill. Cayleb Biscuit Albury ran the ball several times on the T-Bolt opening drive and capped it off with a touchdown. The extra point was added by Corey Dixon. There were key plays by several on defense including Corey Dixon, Emmitt Beasley, Hunter Vanderpool and C.J. Bernardo. The second score came on a Corey Dixon TD run and Cayleb Albury added the point after to make the final score Bolts 14 ,Ft. Myers 13. The final game of the day for the Thunderbolts was the Junior team, coached by Luke Ancrum. The game ended up in a forfeit win for the Thunderbolts, however the boys still took the field and played. Ty Dellop Ancrum had the first score of the game with a 30-yard run. The Bolts put another touchdown on the board by Malcolm Jackson when he made a 45-yard dash. Not to be outdone, Dellop ran again for a 60yard score. Last but not least, Garret Yarbrough scored on a one-yard run up the middle. The defense also brought the pain, and a great job from Reggie Jones Jr. as he started at quarterback in place of James Ancrum, due to an injury. This Saturday, Oct. 1, the Thunderbolts are at home against the Lake Placid Dragons. Kick off is at 9 a.m., so come out and support your local youth football players.

In aiting on God, Part 2w e will bring closure to Josephs life and begin to focus on Psalm 37( NKJV). Joseph went through m any emotions as he walked through his numerous trials. He was treatedt erribly by his brothers, thrown into a pit, sold into s lavery, and put into prison. He probably experienced many types of emotions as a result. Is it possible that he might havef retted and stewed over the situation? Many of us as b elievers have probably been mistreated badly like Joseph at some point andf ind ourselves fretting over our circumstances. God is f ully aware of everything that happens to us at all times. H e knows when people mistreat us. Psalm 37:1-4 offers great insight to us as believers in how we should handle situations likeJ osephs. When we are hurt by others, we must understand that it is Gods job to deal with those who hurt us.P salm 37:1, 2 says, Do not fret because of evildoe rs, nor be envious of workers of iniquity. Fort hey shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Since God already knew the mistreatment thatJ oseph faced, then what else may God have been trying to accomplish in Josephs life, as well as in ours? P salm 37:3, 4 tells us that we are to trust God to take care of those who try to harm us. Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give the desires of your heart. Psalm 37:3, 4 teaches us the importance of trusting God and being obedient. This was the same for Joseph. As Joseph continuously made the d ecision to make right choices and trust Him, he reaped many blessings. A s you continue to think more about how Joseph might have been feeling or what het hought while he was in the pit or prison, consider how anxious hem ight have felt at times. He had no idea how long he was going to be left int hat pit or how long he would be in prison. Joseph h ad a choice. He could have stewed and thought about how he could getb ack at his brothers for all they had done to him, or h e could have just remained calm believing his situation was just temporary. Verse 7 tells us to Rest i n the Lord, and wait patiently for Him; do not f ret because of him who prospers in his way, because the man whob rings wicked schemes to pass. Cease from anger, a nd forsake wrath; do not fret-it only causes harm. Genesis 37:5-11 tells a bout a dream that Joseph had where his brothers, father, and mother would bow at his feet in years to come. P salm 37:9-11 explains to us what happens when we walk in obedience to God and trust Him like Joseph did. For evildoerss hall be cut off; but those who wait upon the Lord, t hey shall inherit the earth. For yet a little while andt he wicked shall be no more. But the meek shall inherit the earth, and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace. At hought to consider is that it wasnt Josephs brothers that ended up as king, but it was Joseph. Because of Josephs r esponse to his brothers and others who had mistreated him, God blessed him. In Waiting on God: Part 3, we will bring final closure to Josephs life and continue with Psalm 37. Until then, lets love our God and trust Him to do for us what we cannot achieve on our own without His power. Leslie Deese ican be reached at ljb_628@yahoo.com.

C M Y K As kids h ead back to school, t hey also get back into participating in teama nd individual sports. Children active in sports programs will improve their cardiovasculara nd musculoskeletal systems, coordination and state o f mind. In addition, sports help children make friends, have fun, learn to play as a member of a team, learn to play fairly and improve self-e steem. Every child matures physically at his or her own rate and has a different degree of athletic ability. No amounto f training can improve a childs natural athletic ability, but training helps improve coordination and therefore performance. Parents should encourage their children to participate in sports but never forget that competition should be fun. One of the most important ways to avoid injuries in all sports is stretching and warm-up exercises before beginning the activity. Warming up helps loosen muscles and prevents injuries in athletes of all ages. In addition, its extremely important to wear the correct shoes for the sport. Your podiatrist can help you choose the right shoes for your children. According to podiatrists, overuse injuries occur from repetitive actions that put too much stress on the bones and muscles. All kids who play sports can develop an overuse injury. Foot injuries commonly seen in very active children include: Blisters are caused by friction when shoes and socks rub repeatedly on the skin. Keep your childs feet as dry as possible; wet shoes, boots and socks will cause blisters far more quickly than dry ones. Consult with your local podiatrist to ensure that shoes fit correctly and for treatment of blisters, especially if your child has diabetes. Severs Disease is an injury to a childs developing foot structure, specifically an inflammation in the heels growth plate due to muscle strain and repetitive stress. It is common in young athletes and children between 8-14 years of age, when the childs bones are still in the growth stage and the growth plates have not become solidified. Rest, ice, and a padded heel insert and in some cases, custom foot orthotics are some treatments usually prescribed by a podiatrist for this condition. Turf toe is a painful hyperextension of the big toe joint typically caused by playing on artificial turf or grass. Children involved in sports played on grass or turf (e.g., baseball, soccer, and football) should be particularly careful. The remedy is usually RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) and orthotics (custom devices for shoes) prescribed by your podiatrist. Shin splints are microtears or inflammation of the anterior leg muscles that cause pain and discomfort on the front of the lower parts of the legs. They are often caused by repeated running on hard surfaces or overtraining at the beginning of a sports season. Some ways of preventing this injury are proper stretching and warmups, wearing shoes designed for your childs sport, and custom orthotics (custom devices for shoes). Podiatrist Olga Garcia Luepschen and the Gentle Foot Care Center can be found at 2 Ryant Blvd. in Sebring (on U.S. 27) or by calling 314-9255 (WALK).

Potassium lives in all of o ur cells, and you need it to move your muscles and make your heart beat in per-f ect rhythm. Without enough potassium on board, your m uscles will cramp (and remember, your heart is a muscle). Potassium seems to protect the brain from ischemic injury (like as troke). The scary part to me is that there are dozens of d rug muggers of potassium, including certain types of diuretics, heartburn medica-t ions, laxatives, insulin thera py and corticosteroid drugs. More classes of medications are listed in my Drug Muggers book. I cannot overestimate the importance of restoring nutrients that getd epleted by medications, for this is your side effect solut ion! Most physicians are aware of the need to reestablish potassium levels aftero rdering a diuretic drug so patients are commonly told t o replace potassium with a banana. FYI, one cup of papaya or french green beans have much higher amounts of nat-u ral potassium compared to one banana, a fruit that is h igh in sugar and prone to fungal disease at the plantation. P otassium can be depleted from the body by intense workouts (think hot yogaa ny kind of dehydration, vomiting, chronic or severe diarrhea and alcoholism. If you want to know your blood levels, physicianso ffer a blood test to evaluate this and other electrolytes. Potassium works with its brother sodium and the two together help controly our bodys water balance, which in turn regulates blood pressure. Potassium has a cumulative effect and this makes it better to take a regular dose for two or threem onths, rather than to take large doses for short periods o f time. Never take more than your doctor recommends and be carefulb ecause potassium interacts with certain diuretics and b lood pressure drugs that are potassium-sparing. Studies consistently support potassium in the regulation of blood pressure.R esearch has shown that adults (and animals h igh blood pressure, who are given supplemental potassium often show a drop in sys-t olic and/or diastolic pressure by up to 12 mm Hg (sometimes more depending on the study). Animals prone to stroke also showed benefit f rom potassium in at least o ne study. Only two percent of the rats who were potassium-s upplemented suffered a s troke, compared to 83 percent of the untreated group. When supplementing with potassium tablets, drink plenty of water and eat a snack because this helps ease the mineral into your body gently, while minimizi ng GI discomfort.D id you know?People with fibromyalgia often have low cortisol, and y oga helps normalize cortisol levels, while reducing pain.

C M Y K The Associated PressMoneyball is hitting it out of the park with critics, winning rave reviews in its opening weekend. Based on the best-seller of the same name, the film stars Brad Pitt as Oakland As general manager Billy Beane, who pioneered a method of assessing and acquiring baseball players to maximize the teams meager budget. AP Movie Critic Christy Lemire wrote: As Beane, Brad Pitt is at his charismatic best a little weary, a little weathered, but that complexity only makes him more appealing. She gave the movie three stars out of four. Also opening this week is the international thriller Killer Elite, starring Robert De Niro, Jason Statham and Clive Owen. Lemire wrote in her two-star review: When Statham and Owen finally meet in the showdown youve been waiting for, its rendered in such dizzying, adrenalized style that its hard to tell whos doing what to whom. Abduction stars wilight hunk Taylor Lautner as a high-school student who gets caught up in spy intrigue. AP Entertainment Writer Jake Coyle wrote: Its a cynical movie, with little in mind other than a showcase for a very popular, young actor He gave the movie just one and a half stars out of four.

When I was 16, I dated a guy, Oliver, I cared for very much. We got along, never argued and were very close. Thea ttachment we had I have never experienced since. Months after we broke up, my mom told me thatb ecause we were of different races, she had called Olivers parents and told them to keep him away f rom me because we were g etting too close. We both moved on, but t hrough the years I have t hought of him often. S ixteen months ago, I found him online. He lives a half-hour away, has two t eenagers and is unhappy i n his marriage. We spoke on the phone or online for a year. Over the last few months we have been meeting at a n earby park. Our connection is still there. We are soul mates and no longerw ant to be without each other.And no, we have NOThad sex. M y husband has been good to me. I love him, but I m not in love with him. I am torn between staying w ith my husband to honor the commitment to my family, or following myh eart with Oliver. Im in love with him and d ont want to lose him a second time. Another Chance in California DearChance: You say youre torn between yourc ommitment to your family or following your heart. But what about Olivers commitment to HIS family? Although your childrena re grown, his arent. They still need a father at home. If the feelings you have carried in your heart all these years for Oliver are more than a fantasy, they wont wither if you postpone acting on your feel-i ngs. Are you strong enough to do that? Whether youre up to the challenge is something only the two of you can decide. DearAbby: I have a close friend, Lindy, who is dying from liver cancer. She could no longer eat or drink even before the chemo was started, and she sleeps most of the time. The chemo has done noth i ng more for her than make her lose her hair. L indy is adamant that shell beat the cancer. To that end, she wants nothing negative passed on to outsiders, including her r elatives who live eight hours away. She has no family here except her boyfriend, whom she wont allow tot alk to her doctor. He refuses to go against her w ishes. I am torn between being loyal to my friends belieft hat shell get better, or notifying her family about h ow sick she really is so they can visit her before she passes. If they come,L indy will be furious (if shes still coherent). But if they dont have the opport unity, it will be unfair to them. M y heart tells me to call Lindys family and tell them to consider a visit sooner rather than later. What do you think? Caught In The Middle DearIn The Middle: I think that if Lindy were as close to her family as you imagine, they would have some inkling that shes ill. That you are aware of heri llness shows how much she trusts you and cares for y ou. The people who are most important to her know about her condition, so please respect her wishes.

Second chance at romance is fraught with consequences Dear Abby By CHRISTYLEMIRE APMovie CriticI t could have been agonizingly mawkish: the story of a young man with everything ahead of him who learns he has a rare form of spinalc ancer, one that he only has a 50-percent chance of surviving. The premise alone sounds like an insufferable drag, an example of eat-y our-vegetables cinema, regardless of the catharsis that might result. Instead, /50 is consistently, uproariously funny, written with humanity andi nsight and directed with just the right tone every time. C omedy writer Will Reiser crafted the script based on his own cancer diagnosisw hen he was in his early 20s. His words are filled w ith dark humor and a wry recognition of the gravity of this situation, but also with real tenderness. His characters are so well-drawn thate ven when you see obvious developments looming on t he horizon, they still feel fresh and offer some moments of surprise. A nd director Jonathan Levine (in a vast improvem ent over his last film, the self-conscious The Wackness) pulls us into thisi ntimate world through an abiding naturalism. Levine has accomplished a tricky bit o f juggling here: Hes made a film about cancer thats e ffortlessly affecting. It helps a great deal that he has Joseph GordonLevitt, an actor of great range and subtlety, in thes tarring role. His character, Adam, a reporter at Seattles public radio station, receives the diagnosis after having a doctor examine him for chronic back pain. Everyone around him reacts differentlyt o the news, and not necessarily well. Adam goes t hrough all the requisite stages of denial, frustration, fear and eventually acceptance, but he does so with such believable imperfec-t ion, he never feels like a saint or a martyr. Hes not a lways gracious in the face of adversity; he can be a litt le surly and smug and emotionally closed-off. He doest even return phone callsf rom his understandably concerned mother (Anjelica H uston). But Adam has a great balance in his lifelong bestf riend and co-worker, the garrulous and lovably crass Kyle (Seth Rogen o f garrulous and lovably crass role Rogen has built a c areer upon. Again, though, heres an example of how /50 sneaks up on you: You think you know this guy, and then he shows ak indness and generosity youd never expect. And it gives Rogen, whos also a producer on the film, a rare opportunity to show some dramatic ability. Sure, he uses his buddys illness tol ine up sympathy sex for both of them but, you know, h e means well. Similarly, Anna Kendrick may seem familiar to you as Adams inexperienced, young therapist, Katherine;i t seems like the kind of eager-beaver, overachiever role Kendrick has played before in films like Up in the Air and Rocket Science. But theres a softness weve not seen from her before, a femininity thatsa ppealing. Adam is only her third patient, and within her b ungling and stiff gestures of sympathy lies not just a strong desire to help, but also to be perceived as helpful. Their exchanges increasei n intensity and provide the films biggest source of e motion. Bryce Dallas Howard, m eanwhile, says all the right things but doesnt really mean them as Adams girl-f riend. She insists shell stick by him no matter what, b ut its clear from the start that shes really trying to convince herself shes capa-b le of such loyalty. Howard is in a tough position here playing a woman of quest ionable decency, but Reisers script is decent e nough to make her feel like a real human being even as she flinches and flees from the horrors of chemotherapy. J ust when /50 threatens to become too unbearably sad, though, a character will say or do just the right thing to break the tension. It doesnt let up necessarily, but it does provide a bal-a nce. And it concludes in the m ost delicate way, with a moment thats a lovely mix of romanticism and restraint. Perfect endings are hard to come by: /50 has one,a nd it wraps up one of the years best films. /50 is effortlessly affecting Ed Araquel/Courtesy Summit Entertainment/MCT Anna Kendrick, from left, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen star in /50. Movie Review /50 Rating: R (language t hroughout, sexual content and some drug use) R unning time: 100 minutes Review: (of 4 Movie Scores: How critics rated new movies By FRAZIER MOORE APTelevision WriterNEWYORK The number of gay and bisexual characters on scripted broadcast network TVhas dipped slightly this season to 19 out of nearly 650 roles, according to the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.

C M Y K LIVING 12B PA GE News-Sun Friday, September 30, 2011 Photo courtesy of Getty ImagesFAMILYFEATURES Medicare is different this year because of health care reform, and if youre not aware of how this important program has changed, pay attention. The Medicare program can be confusing because of its many different parts, supplemental coverage options and specific Medicare enrollment periods for different products. All of these nuances can make Medicare hard to understand for new enrollees as well as for those who have been on the program for a number of years. If youre new to the program or even if youre a seasoned Medicare veteran, here are six things you should know about the program heading into 2012. Beawareofdeductibles, co-insurance,out-of-pocket limitsandprescriptiond rugcostsI f youre new to Medicare its important to know that both parts of Original Medicare (Aand B) have deductibles. And, the Part A deductibles are not tied to a calendar year like they are with traditional health insurance. Instead, theyre tied to a 90-day benefit period, with some exceptions. The Medicare Part B benefit also includes c oinsurance after you meet your deductible. With coinsurance, Medicare pays a percentage of each bill (typically between 20 and 45 percent, depending on the service) and you pay the rest after applicable premiums and deductibles. Original Medicare also has no limits on the amount you could pay out of your own pocket for covered medical services each year. And, original Medicare does not cover the cost of most prescription drugs.Newandexisting benefitstohelpyou fillinMedicarsgapsPeople concerned about some of the gaps in original Medicare have the option to enroll in insurance products regulated by the government but provided by private companies. These are products designed specifically to fill some of the different gaps in Medicare. They include:Medicare Part D stand-alone prescription drug plans, which cover the cost of most prescription drugs. New Benefit: In 2012 part D recipients get a 14 percent discount on the cost of generic drugs when they reach Medicares coverage gap, or donut hole, on top of the 50 percent discount they got last year on the cost of brand name drugs when they reach the donut hole. Medicare Supplement plans, which cover portions of the deductibles, coinsurance and out-of-pocket costs not covered by original Medicare.Medicare Advantage plans, which bundle together the Part D drug benefit with some additional coverage for deductibles, coinsurance and out-of-pocket costs. New Benefit: Starting in 2011, health care reform requires all Medicare Advantage plans to have a maximum limit of $6,700 on how much a customer can pay out of their own pocket for medical services, excluding the cost of prescription drugs. Each type of supplemental coverage has different guidelines for when you can enroll, change and cancel your coverage. TherearenewMedicare annualenrollmentdatesMost beneficiaries can change a Medicare Advantage plan or stand-alone Medicare prescription drug plan once per year during Medicares annual enrollment period (AEP The dates for AEPchanged this year, and run from October 15 to December 7 in 2011. Medicare Supplement plans have an initial enrollment period, which occurs in the first 6 months after you enroll in Medicare Part B and are 65 or older. During that time, you can enroll in a Medicare Supplement plan and not be declined. But, if you try to enroll after the initial enrollment period, your application could be declined based on a review of your medical history. But, if you want to switch from a Supplement plan to an Advantage plan, the AEPis a good time to make that switch.Itscriticaltocompare drugcoverageeveryyearPlanPrescriber.com, an internet company that allows people to compare Medicare plans sideby-side and research benefits, drug prices and different coverage options, looked at 25,000 user sessions on its website during the 2011 AEP(between November 15, 2010 and December 31, 2010). Customers entered their zip code, their existing Medicare prescription drug plan or Medicare Advantage drug plan, and the names, dosages and frequency of any prescription drugs they were taking, if any. 2012Medicare annualenrollment periodrunsfrom October15to December7,2011. NewtoMedicare?Many people who are new to Medicare may have to deal with the complexity of the program. Here are some basics:Medicare is comprised of four major programs: Part A, Part B, Part C, and Part D. Medicare Part Aand Part B are often referred to as Original Medicare. There are also Medicare Supplement plans, which are designed as an alternative to Part C to fill gaps in Parts A and B.Generally speaking, Part Acovers inpatient hospitalization while Part B covers outpatient services and other medical care.Part C denotes the Medicare Advantage program where private insurance companies deliver Medicare Part A, Part B and in most cases Part D benefits to plan enrollees. Part D is the Medicare prescription drug benefit that provides insurance coverage for medications. Your circumstances determine when you can enroll in or change Part D and C plans. The sites prescription drug plan comparison tool found that, on average, a user could save over $500 per year over $40 per month by reviewing their options and changing their prescription drug plan. But, averages dont tell the full story. In a recent news article, a MarketWatch reporter compared the cost differences for a single drug in one Georgia zip code and found that annual expenses could range from $2,661 to $9,032, depending on which Medicare Advantage plan is chosen. If you want to review and research the different Medicare products available in your zip code, www.planprescriber.com is a great place to start.Getstarpowerin2012The Affordable Care Act, (health care reform) requires a star rating system to be used for Medicare Advantage plans, beginning in 2012. Plans get a rating of 1 to 5, with a 5 star rating equating to an Excellent Performance, and a 1 star rating equating to a Poor Performance. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, out of 523 plans nationwide in 2011, only three received an overall rating of 5, and seventy-four received an overall rating 4 or 4.5 stars. Heading into 2012 the hope is that more plans will achieve this high 5 star rating. If youre lucky enough to have access to a 5 star plan, consider it as an option for your coverage. One benefit of a 5 star plan is that you can enroll at any time, even outside of Medicares annual enrollment period. Makewayforbaby boomersqualifying forOriginalMedicar atage65This year, baby boomers begin turning 65, which means more people will be enrolling in the basic benefit than ever before, putting more stress and time constraints on enrollment experts. That, plus the new dates, means people who wait until the last minute could be putting themselves at risk. Its a good idea to make a plan and review your coverage for 2012 early.
