Kindergartners participated in an attempt to have the most people do jumping jacks in a 24-hour period. The Guinness Book of World Record attempt is another part of First Lady Michelle Obamas Lets Move! initiative. Obama has spent the last two years searching for new, fun ways to get children moving around to promote physical fitness and healthy eating habits. In order to break the record, more than 20,425 people had to be recorded doing jumping jacks. The observations had to be turned in by 3 p.m. Wednesday. Obama led a group of 400 students Tuesday afternoon on the White Houses South Lawn for the start of the 24hour period.

Oompah! returns to AP Saturday Oktoberfest expected to draw 6,000 By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comLAKE PLACID After months of fine tuning, the Lake Placid Town Council passed an ordinance 3-0 on Monday that gives local businesses a preference when it comes to bidding. The council is still short one member after the resignation of Cheryl BrantleyDavis. The final reading of the ordinance clarifies that purchases of $5,000 or less can be made without requiring bids, but town staff has to look to local businesses first as long as the prices are competitive. All purchases above $5,000 are to be done by competitive bidding, but the ordinance still gives local businesses some wiggle room on bids based on the proximity of the business to the town. If the purchase is between $5,000 and $249,999.99, business within the town limits can be higher than other bidders by 5 percent and still get awarded the bid. From $250,000 and $999,999.99, the local bidder can be 4 percent higher than an out-of-town business and will get a 3 percent preference from $1 million to $199,999.99. Over $2 million, the local business can still be higher by 2 percent, but the maximum preference is capped at $80,000 in order to protect the taxpayer. If no business located within the town bids, then another business within the Lake Placid area can take advantage of half of those percentages, and a company within the county will receive a quarter of the prescribed percents over an out of county bidder. Our intent is to give the local businesses a leg up, so to speak, and to use our their own tax dollars effectively said council member Steve Bastardi. Local bidders in Lake Placid get preference Corrections

When I began to write as a conservative in the 1980s I was confused by the intolerance of the opposition. The left was supposed to be for freedom. Then a friend who taught at an eastern state u niversity and whose husband was a professor at an Ivy League college, smiled i ndulgently and said, Theyre Marxists. A t first I was skeptical, but, when I interviewedv arious professors in the liberal arts, many freely admitted they were Marxists. One explained that Marxism gave atheists like him something to believe in and a cause to fight for. I realized that I had confused Communism with Marxism. Communism is the application of Marxism to the state. Marxism is an all encompassing ideology. According to Marx, all history is the history of class struggle. Any problem can be reduced to a conflictb etween the oppressor c lass and the oppressed class: Rich versus poor, men versus women, white Europeans versus minorities, humans versus animals, etc Marxist exploits real problems, but rather than offer practical solutions, Marxists seek to fuel anger, envy, and outrage. The goal is not reform, but revolution: Throw out the oppressors and give all power to the oppressed. And since the oppressed just want their real problems solved, in the end this means all power to the college professors who know what is best for everyone. Marxists are intolerant, because according to them, oppressors have no rights. Marxists exploit the rights granted to those who live in a free society: freedom of speech, the press, and assembly. But as soon as they get into power they seek to take away those freedoms from their opponents. Since true Marxists represent only a tiny minority, in order to foment revolution, they need allies, but once in power they purge their ranks of all dissent. You can identify Marxist ideology by certain code words: diversity, multiculturalism, and other isms such as racism, sexism, heterosexism. The goal is to make everyone think of themselves aspart of a class in conflict with other classes. Class consciousness is the first step to class struggle. Once everyone is indoctrinated into class thinking, then the Marxists focus on differences between classes. T hey use statistics to prov e that there are inequalities,a nd, of course, they find them, because achieving p erfect equality based on arbitrary divisions is impossible. Even if indi-v iduals in aparticular class have done nothing to h urt persons in another class, the very existence of inequalities is viewed as o ppressive. Of course, the Marxists dont really want to get rid of inequalities, that wouldnt further their revolution. They want tom ake people believe they are victims. Aperfect example of the application of Marxist ideology is Title IX, federall egislation which required university athletic prog rams to divide slots for student participationb etween men and women based on the percentage of each sex enrolled. Since there are more women enrolled, that meant mores lots for women. But far fewer women than men want to play intercollegiate sports, so mens teams are eliminated to bring the col-l ege into compliance. This didnt benefit the women, and hurt the men. But the Marxists dont care. The Marxists never care about the suffering their revolutions cause. The current Wall Street protests are fueled by Marxist agitation. Students indoctrinated by Marxist professors, leftovers from the 60s, and a host of fringe groups think that now is the time for their revolution. The reporters interviewing participants are confused by the lack of a unified objective, but those covering the events cannot help but notice the Marxist rhetoric. Those who may be tempted to think that this amorphous street rally can do some good, need to look at the history of Marxist inspired movements. Marxism as a system of government has failed everywhere it has been tried. Marxist agitation prevents real solutions.. President Obama has shown sympathy for their cause. The labor unions are active participants. They need to be careful. Marxists are not only a threat to the freedoms Americans hold dear, they have a history of treating their friends badly. Dale OLeary of Avon Park is a writer and lecturer and author of The Gender Agenda: Redefining Equality and One Man, One Woman. Guest columns are the opinion of the writer, and not necessarily those of the News-Sun. Theyre Marxists From The Right Side D ale OLeary The depression: cause and effectEditor: This is not a dream of the worlds working class but rather a dream of the super rich in its quest for more profit. It has destroyed the worlds financial systems. Global powers, in their quest for cheap labor worldwide, has turned the financial systems upside down. The unstable financial system will take decades to correct America, China, India, Germany, France, the European Common Market, the entire world is in this financial trap. Americas cheap labor came mostly from Mexico or through Mexico illegally with the blessings of corporate farms; then it spread to the meat packing industry, the building industry and then through all industries. This illegal workforce displaced the American worker to the point that we now have a complete financial collapse of the housing and banking industries. The foreclosure of homes and small farms has destroyed millions of lives. To compound the injury, American industries have offshored most of their work. Due to so-called free trade, they have been able to dump those products on the American market, duty free, thus destroying competition from the American industries we have left. The American unemployed will take to the streets in the near future to force change in all of our unfair trade deals. If the illegal dumping on our market is stopped, then millions of jobs will be created. Global powers have destroyed the entire financial world with their quest for cheap labor. All nations must return foreign quest workers to country of origin. They must demand tariffs so as to protect their nations workforce, so as to stabilize their nations financial systems. The leadership of all nations are in question. There will be much civil unrest, worldwide, in this transition. Americas focus on leadership has to change. The allowing of political office holders to serve for many years creates a corrupt and destructive government. The law that demands term limits on the executive branch of government must demand term limits for all government local, state and federal. The laws of our land must apply equally to every citizen, regardless of position in life. If America is to remain a world power and a free nation, we all must be accountable to laws of our constitution. Billie E. Jewett SebringHousing Department should be preservedEditor: I had the opportunity to work with the Highlands County Housing Department. Since my start with Mrs. Penny Phillippi and my former colleagues, we achieved wonderful goals in housing. Those past years were extremely successful and productive for the community (we could call that time the years of the fatted cows); they were indeed the best of times. We helped many families in need through the management of nearly $5 million received from state and federal agencies for a variety of housing programs. The Housing Department contributed to the growth and quality of life for the citizens of Highlands County. Communities and neighborhoods such as Highway Park were rehabilitated. Businesses such as Home Depot and Lowes were established in this county through our Housing Departments assistance. I say our Housing Department, because we were a big family, the Housing Family However, despite our accomplishments, the current Commissioners of Highlands County have decided to effectively close our department. They have turned a blind eye towards our housing achievements and view housing as an unneeded and unwanted service. Unfortunately, there will be little to no assistance for those working families who aspire to live the American Dream of homeownership. There will be little to no more home repairs assistance for elderly and those with no resources. There will be little to no mortgage assistance or rental assistance for those emergencies; all due to the restructuring of the department. The elderly and less fortunate can thank Barbara Stewart and her supporting cast. Carmen M. Miranda Sebring EDITORIALPAGEPOLICYMake sure to sign your letter and include your address and phone number.

Fortunately for the legislators, TaxWatch already hasd one much of their work for them. The widely respected, business-backed think tank has sifted through programs and departments and recommended ways to save money. B ut TaxWatch also has suggested ways legislators c an take in more money. Those ideas shouldnt be summarily dismissed, as sev-e ral make sense. And by implementing s ome of them, lawmakers could avoid having to cut programs that voters value, like education and senior care. Not all of TaxWatchs 135 r ecommendations appear well suited to Florida. The suggestion to eliminate dental, vision and hearing services for Medicaid patients, for example, appears undulyh arsh. Asuggestion to make it harder for Medicaid recipie nts to sue providers for malpractice seems unfair, and unjust. Y et there seems no good reason in tough times or e ven the best of times for government to ignore TaxWatchs call for agencies to purchase generic equivalents for supplies, a no-brainer that could net the state$ 305 million. Theres no good reason to delay expanding the use of teleconferencing to reduce state travel costs, which could save the state upwardo f $17 million. And we dont see a compelling reason to d ivert some first-time marijuana-user offenders from prison, which could save thes tate millions more. Theres also no good e xcuse for the Republicanled Legislature to rule out all of TaxWatchs revenue enhancement ideas. T axWatch argues convincingly for collecting more revenue from remote sellers on the Internet, by phone and by mail, which it says could landt he state $50 million a year. TaxWatch urges the state to add more tax collectors to help increase tax compliance, an effort that should bring thes tate an additional $6 million next year. Were not buying all of TaxWatchs revenue enhancements. Its call to sell ads on electronic highwaym essaging signs could, for instance, cause ad-weary m otorists to completely ignore them, even when theyre warning of traffich azards. But theres plenty in T axWatchs grab bag that could work well for Florida and for legislators in an election year. Some good revenue ideas out there The warning from Florida TaxWatch was probably the last thing legislators facing re-election next year wanted to hear: To plug what could be another budget shortfall, to guard against future deficits, legislators may need to cut more services even after last sessions nearly $4 billion bloodletting.

Prescott is one of those exceptional kids that goesb eyond the norm and proves to be a model citizen at an early age. The Polk County fourth grader spends his free time helping not only thosei n his community, but people he doesnt even know. Prescott has received 525 pounds of orange juice from Floridas Natural in Lake Wales. Prescott gathered theo range juice with intentions of giving it to needy individu als in the community, but after speaking with Floridas N atural representatives, Prescott decided to give the juice to Highlands County food bank. e work with Floridas N atural before. Theyve given us grant money, but weve never received any juice or anything from them. When they heard what he( Prescott) wanted to do they said Hey, we know exactly who you can help, said director of the Heartland Food Reservoir NatalieS imons. Simons said that Floridas Natural put Prescotts mother in touch with Heartland Food Reservoir and the rest is history. It is so amazing that this nine year old can take on this b ig of a project on his own, Simons said. P rescott has committed to donate the hundreds of pounds of orange juice to the Heartland Food Reservoir to better enable the food bank toc ontinue to serve residents of Highlands County. According to Simons, Prescott was scheduled to travel from Fort Meade toS ebring to present the donation to Simons and the board members at their meeting Thursday. Not only is he giving us t his orange juice but he is holding a can food drive at his church in Fort Meade on Saturday. We will be taking a truck up there to help out. He is an exceptional kid. Mostf ourth graders wouldnt think about doing something like t his, Simons said. Board Chairman Rich H etherton was also surprised by the students generosity and attitude. I admire the young man. Hes and example of what Iw ould like to see in the youth in Highlands County Hetherton said. Hetherton isnt quite sure what gave Prescott the ideao f donating juice to the food reservoir, but he believes the student came up with it on his own. His mom said that he said t hat he needed to do something to help the hungry. She said that she would help him however she could but that it was his project. The boy got Floridas Natural to give him2 5 cases of orange juice. I dont know how he did it, but s omehow or another he did it, Hetherton said.

KLCstudents jump for spot in record book Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Saying its time to stop letting convicted killers get off that easy, a Florida state lawmaker wants to use firing squads or the electricc hair for those on Death Row. Rep. Brad Drake filed a bill this week that would end the use of lethal injection in Florida executions. Instead those with a death sentence could chooseb etween electrocution or a firing squad, under the proposal. Drake, R-Eucheeanna, said the idea came to him after having a conversation with a constituent at a DeFuniakS prings Waffle House over the legal battles associated with the Sept. 28 execution of Manuel Valle. Valles lawyers tried to stop the execution by arguing that a new lethal drug cocktail would cause him pain and t herefore constitute cruel and unusual punishment. Courts, however, rejected that argument and let the execution go forward. But Drake said a person at the restaur ant questioned why Death Row inmates should even be allowed to die by lethal injection. Drake said he agreed and decided to sponsor the bill that would mandate a switch. The GOP-controlledF lorida Legislature will consider the bill during the 2012 session that starts in January. He said that government is spending too much time listening to advocacyg roups and instead should put in place a death sentence that forces convicted murderers to contemplate their fates. Drake said lethal injection just allows a person to die in their sleep while a firing squad or electrocution would force D eath Row inmates to think about their punishment every morning. I think if you ask a hundred people, not even talking to criminals, how would you like to die, if you wered rowned, if you were shot, and if you say you were put to sleep, 90 percent of some of the people would say I want to be put to sleep, Drake said. Lets put our pants back on the right way F lorida first began using the electric chair in 1924. Before then, most executions were carried out by hanging. But the state switched to lethal injection in 2000. Then Gov. Jeb Bush andt he Republican-controlled Florida Legislature pushed through the change after several botched electrocutions raised concerns that the states death penalty would be declared unconstitutional.

John Lovelette and his wife, Duffers owner Teri, were enjoying their opening day with several guests on Wednesday afternoon at the new location at 2451 U.S. 27 in Avon Park (which is the former Bella Vista restaurant, just before South Florida Community College). It took about six weeks to complete. We closed on Aug. 28 and today we opened, said Lovelette. Both Terri and John seemed very proud of their new establishment and look forward to sharing the space with local patrons. oday we had a golf tournament group call and book lunch here and we have another group that heard we were opening and stopped in, said Lovelette.

The dinner menu features prime rib tenderloin, lump crab and several other enticing entrees. Duffers Lakeside Dining also has a variety of white and red wines and mouth watering desserts.

Marco Rubio is raising his national profile through as eries of major policy speeches on the economy and Americas role in the world. But one issue Floridas f reshman Republican doesnt spend much time d iscussing is immigration. Thats despite the fact hisp arents came from Cuba and he represents the state with the third-largest number of illegal immigrants. The issue has alsog arnered recent attention in the Republican presidential primary campaign because Texas Gov. Rick Perry supports in-statec ollege tuition for illegal immigrants, a position Rubio once supported. Rubio will talk in generalities about immigration but as the charismatic 40-year-old lawmakers prominence grows, he will likely face more scrutiny on the issue. Despite his denials of interest, he is one of many Republicans who get mentioned as possible vice presidential nominees next year, and recently announced plans for a memoir. At the national level, hes not going to get a pass as he did in his Senate election, said Frank Sharry of the Washington, D.C. based pro-immigrant group, Americas Voice. Sharry said Rubios views on immigration and on making English the official language are going to be lifted up to the diverse immigrant communities in Florida and to the largely Mexican-American communities in the West. That is in part why talking about immigration is complicated for Rubio. Hs the darling of tea party conservatives and generally favors their position of securing the border first and dealing with the countrys more than 10 million illegal immigrants later. Republicans also are frank about the charismatic senators ability to attract Latinos to the GOP, a factor that could play a key role in swing states like Colorado, New Mexico and Florida next year.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID It certainly wasnt a masterpiece, Tuesdays district clash b etween Lake Placid and Avon Park. So much so that Lady Dragon head coach Linette Wells could only say, Ive got nothing good to say about this match, immediately following the conclusion. And her squad won in three sets. It certainly was competitive though, with a 25-17 second-set win for Lake Placid surrounded by 26-24 nail-biters in both the first and third sets. Though competitive might be too strong a word as it was more the mistakes on both sides that kept things close. There was, however, some good volleyball thrown into the mix as well. After taking off to a 4-1 lead in the opener, theD ragons had to fight off a MacKenzie Meyers ace, an Ashley Chacon kill and an ace from Teresa Devlin to h ang on to a 6-5 lead. Tips from Otisha Smith a nd Kayla Wilson, though, s parked a Lady Devil run that wrestled the lead away and a Devlin tip had it at 13-11. Lake Placid would knot it at 14, but another run, with a tip and an ace from Smith, ballooned the lead to 19-15. AChacon ace had it at 2117 before it was the Dragonst urn to charge. Four straight evened it at 21-all, though after a backand-forth, it was Avon Parkw ith game point at 24-23 on a Smith kill.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comIt looks like Sebring will settle for second in the district seedings after missing out on a chance to even the season series with the Blue Devils of Winter Haven Tuesday night. It was the difference between a team that steps up and finishes and a team thats still playing scared to make mistakes, head coach Venessa Sinness said. Much like their last meeting on Sept. 29, the Streaks werent overwhelmed by a towering Devil squad, but just couldnt get over the top. e ran with them pointfor-point until it got to 15, Sinness said. Last time we were with them until the 17point mark, so we know theyre a team we can stay with. Sebring couldnt much get past the 15-point mark in the opening 25-16 loss, but kept pace much better in the 25-19 and 25-20 losses that closed this one out. Dino (Lower heck of a game and Bella (Caraballo Sinness said. Hopefully we can build up some momentum these next few games before the district tournament. Now 3-2 in district pla y, the team closed out the district schedule Thursday at Lake Gibson before heading up to the 48-team Dig Pink Tournament in Orlando this weekend. s three groups of 16 teams and the competition should be real good, Sinness said. The team then closes out the regular-season schedule with a Thursday, Oct. 20 home match with Hardee before it sets to host the District Tournament beginning Monday, Oct. 24. Lady Streaks cant solve Blue Devils News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE Bella Caraballo stepped up her play Tuesday, but it wasnt enough to overcome Winter Haven. Few positives in Dragon sweep See LP, Page 4B The news that Theo E pstein, wunderkind general manager of the Boston Red Sox who helped end their 86-year World Series drought, was on his way to the Cubs (see page 3B t ainly has the North Side masses brimming with excitement. It sure has me already anxious for the offseason of maneuvering and to see what he has in store. It also made me take a bit of a history lessen. As is ingrained into t he collective minds of Cub Nation, it has been 103 years since the team last won the World Series. So I was curious as to how things were way back in 1908, when the Cubs 4-1 win over the Detroit Tigers marked t he beginning of the end of baseball championships for the team. Henry Ford produced his very first Model T, which sold for $850. Afew weeks after the Cubs wrapped up the World Series win over T y Cobbs club, Butch Cassidy and the S undance Kid were gunned down by a band of soldiers in Bolivia. That year marked the first time that the ball was dropped from Times Square to signify the coming of the new year and a first-class stamp cost two cents. This was also the year of the Tunguska blast, when a meteor exploded above a forest in Siberia, leveling more than 800 square miles of trees. What does this history lesson tell us? That its been a ridiculously long time since the Cubs won it all. It also speaks to the patience of us fans of the team, or our idiocy. That patience has waned in recent years, with the oh-so-close torture of the 2003 playoffs, and back-to-back playoff teams in 07 and 08. Which has lead many pundits to proclaim that the pressure will be no less in Chicago than it was in Boston. The pressure will come, no doubt, but not as immediate as some are making it out to be. You see, one thing we Cub fans know about is rebuilding. And we recognize that the current team, the current organization on the whole, isnt exactly close to contending. We know better than 1908 was a long time ago And Another Thing...

The Eagles were taking on the Lakeland Hurricanes and were hoping to bring some more Ws this week. The Highlands Youth Football teams are nearing the end of the regular season with each team looking at the stats and the talk of playoffs is widespread throughout the Sunshine PALAssociation. Each game day and every win that is earned gets them one step closer to getting to the playoffs. The Eagles teams are working hard and fighting every step of the way with several potential teams in the playoffs to represent Highlands Youth Football. The first team to take the field was the Flag team, ages 5 and 6 and lead by head coach Bob Ford. The Hurricanes took the field with a strong offensive drive to pull them to an early lead in the game. The Eagles defense stood strong but was unable to thwart the Hurricanes offense. The Eagles were able to make it to the end zone to score only one touchdown for the day, ulitmatley resulting in a loss with a final score of 33-6, bringing their record to 4-4 for the season. Next up was the Mighty Mite team, ages 7, 8 and 9, lead by head coach, Willis McGuire. The Eagles took the field with the Hurricanes focused and determined. The defensive battle was on, and with Bailey Riggles, Treshawn Rowe and Robert Gotkiewicz, the Eagles kept the Hurricanes on high alert. The Eagles offense rallied together, but costly mistakes in the red zone caused the Eagles another devastating loss with a final score of 14-0 The Pee Wee team, ages 10 and 11 and lead by head coach Tim Hooks were eager and ready to take the field after last weeks win against Auburndale. The Eagles offense made strides, moving the ball down the field but fell just short. This quickly became a defensive battle, going into halftime a 0-0 game. In the second half, the offense worked together to get to the end zone to score the touchdown. But the score was called back due to a penalty, taking them into the fourth quarter still scoreless. With the game winding down, the defenses on both teams stood strong and sent it into overtime. The teams would go into overtime in a Kansas City tie-breaker beginning on the 10 yard line with each team getting an opportunity to score. The Highlands Eagles won the toss and got the ball first. The Eagles made their way into the end zone with Kasey Hawthorne scoring the touchdown to make the score 6-0. But a fumbled snap cost them the extra-point conversion. The Hurricanes quickly responded with a touchdown of their own, but the Eagles defense stopped the extra point which led to the second overtime. Both defenses held through the second and third overtimes and was nearly through the fourth before, on fourth down, the Hurricanes pushed it across Eagles face the Hurricanes See HYF, Page 4B

The person says compensation issues must be worked out before the deal is finalized. The person spoke on the condition of anonymity Wednesday night because there has not been an announcement. The 37-year-old Epstein would leave the Red Sox with a year remaining on his contract as general manager and take over what is expected to be an expanded role with the Cubs, who have gone 103 years without a World Series championship. Radio station WEEI in Boston, ESPN the Magazine and SI.com earlier cited unidentified sources in reporting that Epstein has agreed to a five-year deal. The Cubs declined comment Wednesday and Red Sox officials could not be reached by The Associated Press. On Tuesday, a person familiar with the situation told the APthat Epstein was likely to join the Cubs within 48 hours. With Epstein at the helm, the Red Sox ended an 86year World Series championship drought in 2004 and won the title again in 2007. Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts fired GM Jim Hendry in July, although Hendry stayed on the job for another month. AP source: Epstein agrees to deal with Cubs P hoto courtesy of BostonHerald.com Theo Epstein has reportedly reached a deal to become general manager of the Chicago Cubs. anyone that major changes need to be made, from bad contracts, bad attitudes and a generally lax farm system. And so I think Epstein will have his grace period, his honeymoon so to speak, for at least next season. So long as we see the work being done, the effort being put in, we can live with the growing pains. Thats how it has always been with fans of all theC hicago teams. We were spoiled by the Walter Paytons and MichaelJ ordans, for my generation at least, as they werent only the best players on their teams, but also the hardest workers. Have the talent but not the desire to bust your butt on every play? We wont stand for that. Maybe a bit short on talent, but have the grit and fight tog o all out? We will respect and embrace that. And I think that will e xtend to Epstein. Show us youre trying, adding more scouts, figuring out a way to get out from under the albatross that is the Alfonso Soriano contract, bringing in a manager (Terry Francona anyone?). If we can see the work being put in, the attitude andt he culture changing, well give you some time. It has, after all, been oneh undred-and-freaking-three years. Ok, maybe a little pressure.

Continued from 1B Theo, the next in a long line of new hopes Associated PressGAINESVILLE Florida coach Billy Donovan is close to signinga five-year contract that would keep him in Gainesville through the 2015-2016 season. The new deal would include the three years he has remaining on his current deal, which pays him $3.5 million annually, and add two more years. Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley said the school will announce financial terms once the deal has been signed. Obviously everyone knows how we feel about Billy Donovan, Foley said. s in the best interest of our program to keep him here for a long time. Donovan said he believes he will sign the new contract soon. In terms of us on the same page of where we are,I think its just a matter of me signing and getting it done, he said Wednesday. I think in this day and age in coaching its very, very rare to be staying at a job starting my 16th year and still have the same athletic director in place. (What has made this job and this opportunity to be here so special is my relationship with him. Donovan won two national championships (2006, 2007) and is 360-147 in 15 seasons in Gainesville. He also led Florida to the 2000 national championship game. The Gators were one game shy of reaching the Final Four last season, losing to Butler 74-71 in New Orleans. Donovan briefly left the program following Floridas second national championship to become head coach of the NBAs Orlando Magic. He changed his mind and returned to Florida four days later.

C M Y K B y BRETTMARTEL Associated PressBATON ROUGE, La. It is often said theres no such thing as a week off in the Southeastern Conference. That hardly applies this year. Acheck of the scores so far this season makes the SEC look like blowout central, begging the question of whether the league that has produced the national champion for five years running is more top-heavy than usual. In the 18 games played between SEC teams this year, half have been decided by 20 or more points. Only four have been decided by 8 points or fewer. The other 14 ended with double-digit victory margins. It seems unusual to me, LSU coach Les Miles said this week. Ive not seen the difference in scores being this big. I always felt like this was more of a defensive league and kind of held the scores down. The SEC has maintained its share of defensive stars, but a number of them are concentrated on Alabama and LSU, which also have strong running games and competent passing attacks. Logic would say that teams which field stifling, turnovercausing defenses and which also have offenses that can move the ball are bound to win by wide margins. Thats precisely what has happened in the cases of the No. 1 Tigers and the No. 2 Crimson Tide. ere getting turnovers and were not giving them up and the score just seems to mount, said Miles, whose Tigers have opened SEC play with wins by 13 points at Mississippi State, 28 over Kentucky and 30 over Florida. Alabama has won its first three SEC games by 24 over Arkansas, 28 over Florida and 34 over Vanderbilt, marking the first time the Tide has won its first three league games by 20 or more since Paul Bear Bryants 1980 squad. Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen said that in the case of Alabama and LSU, its not surprising to see the SEC looking a little toph eavy this year. Theres a lot of football to be played, but those two seem to have separated themselves from every other team in the country, Mullen said. I thought LSU was a pretty impressive football team. Vanderbilt coach James Franklin said the best handful of teams in the country tend to post their share of lopsided victories, no matter whom they play. s one thing to be a Top 25 team. Its another to be in that top 5, Franklin said. The gap between No. 30 and No. 20, I dont think is that significant. But that gap between No. 15 and No. 2 or 3 is dramatic. Odds makers expect more easy wins for both the Tigers and the Tide this Saturday. LSU is a more than twoTD favorite at Tennessee, while Alabama is a more than three touchdown favorite at Mississippi. Yet there have been plenty of other blowouts across the SEC not involving LSU or Alabama. Vanderbilt beat Mississippi by 23 points. Before Florida dropped out of the Top 25 with big, backto-back losses to Alabama and LSU, the Gators won their first two SEC games by 10 over Tennessee and 38 over Kentucky. In the Gatorscase, a leg injury to senior starting quarterback John Brantley against Alabama likely contributed to the lopsided losses, although Miles said he was still surprised to see Florida have its worst loss to LSU since 1971. After losing its SEC opener by 24 to Alabama, Arkansas beat Auburn by 24. South Carolina beat Vanderbilt by 18 and walloped Kentucky by 51. Georgia has posted 14point wins over both Ole Miss and Mississippi State. s definitely abnormal, LSU guard Will Blackwell said. In the SEC, youre expecting a one-score difference in just about every game. Backwell, a senior, speaks from experience. Last season, LSU went 11-2 overall but had a number of heartpounding finishes in SEC games, including a 2-point win over Tennessee on touchdown scored on an untimed down, followed by a narrow victory over Florida after a fake field goal set up a winning touchdown pass in the final seconds. The Tigers also held on to beat Alabama by a field goal, beat Ole Miss by only a touchdown and lost to eventual champion Auburn by a touchdown. LSU receiver Russell Shepard said in some cases such as those of Florida and Tennessee, teams that have been historically strong are going through coaching transitions and have a lot of youth. Florida has a first-year coach in Will Muschamp, while Tennessee has a second-year coach in Derek Dooley. When youve got a lot of youth, youre going to have games where the youth plays to its potential and games where the youth plays like youth, Shepard said. You throw the new coaches into the mix and youve just got a lot to learn. In time, some of these teams will get back to their dominant ways. for the 12-6 final. This was an exceptional game played by the Pee Wees, bringing their record to 5-3. Following the Pee Wee game, the Junior Varsity team, ages 12 and 13, managed by head coach Cliff Howell, took the field with the Plant City Eagles. The game got off to a great start with the home Eagles offense driving down the field in their first possession of the game. The JVoffense was on the field for the majority of the first quarter with some costly penalties thwarting their efforts. The dominating Eagles defense took the field, lead by Akem JnPierre, and quickly shut down the Hurricanes offense going into halftime 0-0. Going into the third quarter, the Eagles defense stood strong with key tackles made by Rafael Smith, Anthony Healy, Timothy Jordon, Davonya Cricket Hunter and Jalen Williams. This was a defensive battle of the claws, and the wind and rain that was pouring at this point. Going into the last quarter of the game, there was still no score on the board and the Eagles offense make some yardage with key runs by quarterback Sammy Smith and CJ Harris. With the game winding down, the defenses on both teams stood strong, and another overtime game was on the docket. HYF won the toss and got the ball first. During the first overtime, the Eagles and Hurricanes were at a stand-off with noone scoring. Afamiliar pattern followed with the second overtime also passing without a score. In the third OT, on fourth down, Smith found Harris in the end zone to finally get HYF on the board with a 6-0 lead. The Hurricanes had one more shot, but on third down, Jordan swooped into the backfield and knocked the ball loose. Williams then pounced on the ball to end things and move the Eagles to 6-2 for the season. The last game of the day was the Varsity team, ages 13, 14 and 15 and lead by h ead coach John Bishop. The Eagles offense came with Cole Kilgo leading the team, but struggled to get team down the field. The Hurricanes, however, quickly took control. Kilgo connected with Lane Hammond for Eagles lone touchdown, with a final score of 25-6 bringing their record to 4-4 and clinchinga spot in the playoffs.. All in all it was a great day of football. The stands were filled with Eagles fans and the concession stand was a happening place. The Highlands Eagles will be on the road this week traveling to Lakeland to play the Polk County Titans on Saturday, Oct. 15. Games will begin at 9 a.m. Admission is $4 for adults and $3 for children. Come on out to support the Highlands Youth Football and Cheer program.

That momentum carried over as, after the Devils notched the first point, the Dragons ran off eight straight to make this seem like a blowout in the making. But Avon Park scored eight of the next 12 points to get to within 12-9, prompting Wells to call a time out. Atrade of points after play resumed then saw Lake Placid add three more to make it 16-10 on a Marissa Baldwin kill. T he Devils would push back a little, getting to within 19-15, but that would be as close as they would get as the Dragons put together three separate runs to finish the 2517 win. And it was early in the third set where a sequence served as a microcosm of the night for both teams. When a Lake Placid hit deflected off an Avon Park player, it caromed on an arc beyond the back line. Ahustling Jamie Wirries raced back and got a hand on it, launching it back toward the net, but on a trajectory heading out of bounds to the right. But Chacon never gave up and dug it back over her head at a near-impossible angle and somehow got it over then et, where the shocked Dragons saw it drop for an Avon Park score. Yet Lake Placid got that point back when a lofted tip then dropped between four Lady Devils. The rest of the set was back-and-forth, with Avon Park getting a small lead and the Dragons tying it time and again. ABaldwin kill had it knotted again late, 22-22, but the Devils scored the next to for their second game-point of the night. But much like the first one, they couldnt finish, with Lake Placid sweeping the next four for the 26-24 win. The one positive thing is that we did fight back and left with a win, Wells said. It was Senior Night, so maybe they were distracted by that, but were still playing down. Avon Park didnt play well and we should have been able to take advantage of that. But they didnt take advantage of all of our mistakes either The Dragons were back at it on the road at Frostproof Thursday and finish off their regular season scheduleM onday at Hardee. Avon Park finished out its regular season Thursday witha Senior Night match against Mulberry. Both teams will then await the District Tournament beginning the week of Oct. 24 at DeSoto.

C M Y K By MANSUR MIROVALEV A ssociated PressMOSCOW An international human rights watchdog lambasted an Oscar-winning actress and other Western celebrities on Wednesday for attending a concert held on the birthday of Chechnyas Kremlin-backed leader, who has been accused of grave rights abuses. The New York-based Human Rights Watch said that American actress Hilary Swank, Belgian actor Jean Claude Van Damme and British violinist Vanessa Mae attended the concert in the Chechen capital, Grozny. The Oct. 5 show was held at a police-cordoned stage on Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrovs 35th birthday. Human Rights Watch urged the artists to avoid legitimizing people like Kadyrov, who has been accused by rights groups of having orchestrated abductions, extrajudicial killings and the enforcement of sharia law in Chechnya, a Russian republic. Ramzan Kadyrov is linked to a grim record of abuse, the groups Europe and Central Asia director Huge Williamson said in a statement. When stars get paid to turn up to party with (Kadyrov suffering of countless victims of human rights abuses. The artistsrepresentatives were not immediately available for comment. Kadyrov is a former separatist rebel who changed sides before the second Chechen war started in 1999. Respected human rights groups have documented disa ppearances, house torchings and extra-judicial killings, a nd say they have evidence of Kadyrovs direct participation in torturing crime suspects. Kadyrov has consistently denied involvement in any of the killings, saying the accusations are fabricated to blacken his name. Dozens of Russian politicians, film and sports stars also attended the concert and praised Kadyrov from a stage arranged between a gigantic mosque and a newly built business center. During the birthday show, Swank said that she has been taken by the Chechen governments passion to make peace and to make something beautiful. I hope to have a film premiere here, the two-time Oscar winner clad in a streaming evening dress said in remarks televised on Chechen state television. Happy birthday, Mr. President. A ction star Van Damme said he spoke from his heart, but mispronounced Kadyrovs name and called Chechnya a nation. The audience gave Kadyrov a standing ovation when the bullnecked and burly man performed a traditional Chechen dance during a song that praised his rule and called Chechnya the center of the universe. Under Kadyrovs leadership and backed by huge tranches of money from the federal budget, Chechnya has become relatively quiet. Grozny, left mostly in ruins by two wars, has risen from the rubble, and the insurgent violence that once gripped Chechnya has largely migrated to neighboring republics of the volatile Caucasus region.

S unshine, water, flip flops, bronze tans, vacation homes, and lavish lifestyles define howm any Floridians live. However, there is a dark cloudl ooming over the Sunshine State for those who are suffer-i ng from a prescription drug addiction, o r for families and friends who have lost loved ones as a result of prescription drug abuse. D rug Free Highlands and many other prevention specialists around the state o f Florida are working hard to bring on the sunshine and take away that cloud that has grown increasingly darker over the last several years. It is scary to think that most of us m ay know someone or have a friend that knows someone who has died from a prescription drug overdose. Scary for sure, but its not hard to believe considering that on average seven people diee very day in Florida due to prescription drug overdoses. That is 2,555 people in o ne year. So we feel so passionately about this issue, but what are we going to do a bout it? Drug Free Highlands distributes educational materials through flyers, handouts, Facebook, the website and our in-house resource room. Moreover, most recently, Drug Free H ighlands along with the Hardee and Polk County Drug Prevention Coalitions hosted the second annual Prescription Drug Summit. The summit was created to raise awareness of theR x Drug Epidemic, educate the community and surrounding communities, a nd challenge participants to step-up and help make a difference. S o weve educated Highlands County by giving information and offering a summit, but we also work with local law enforcement on getting the drugs out of the reach of the wrong hands byp articipating in take back programs. Operation Medicine Cabinet illustrates our commitment to keeping citizens safer, protecting our young people from the harmful misuse of prescriptiond rugs, understanding the needs of seniors, and the environmental implications related to improper disposal. M any Floridians are not aware that medicines that sit in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse and abuse. Incidents of prescription drug abuse i n the U.S. are increasing at alarming rates, as are the number of accidental p oisonings and overdoses deaths due to these drugs. Studies show that a major-i ty of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including from the home medicine cabinet. Many Floridians do not know how t o properly dispose of their unused medicine, often flushing them down the toilet or throwing them away both potential safety and health hazards. The Operation Medicine Cabinet task f orce is working diligently on Highlands Countys third take back program, which is set for Saturday, O ct. 29, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. We encourage you to clean out your medicine cabinets, tell your friends and make a trip to one of the four locations in Highlands County to properly dis-p ose of your medications. Drop off sites are at the following l ocations: Avon Park Police Department, 3 04 West Pleasant St.; 453-6622. Highlands County Sheriffs Office Substation, Liberty Star Plaza, 7177 S. George Blvd. Sebring; 4027200. Lake Placid Police Department, 8 N. Oak Ave.; 699-3757. Sebring Police Department, 307 N. Ridgewood Drive; 471-5108.

My Jewish grandmother used to come over and cook soup with bones in it. She insisted it would keep us healthy andm ade us suck the marrow out of the bones. Truthfully, we never got sick. What doy ou think of this idea? I dont want to torture my own kids but she may haveo n to something. B.E., Hartford, C onnecticut Answer: Anything that helps you avoid illness (andp ricey antibiotics) is fine by me! Growing up, my mom m ade us kids do the same. I can still hear her ravenously sucking the marrow out of the bones, they never had a chance. Bone marrow soupc ontains red marrow, which provides immune system f actors such as myeloid stem cells, which are precursors to red blood cellst hat bring oxygen to your organs. It also contains l ymphoid stem cells, precursors to white blood cells and platelets. White blood c ells fight germs and platelets help your blood clot properly. If youre still grossed out about cooking such a pre-h istoric soup, keep listening. Bone broth will provide your body with two important amino acids, glycine and proline.G lycine is needed to help our body form a powerful l iver antioxidant called glutathione, which neutralizep oisons. Proline has been researched extensively and supports heart health by blocking dangerous lipoprotein a from stick-i ng to your arteries (think atherosclerosis). While the idea of bone broth might make you want to fast, the truth is, boneb roth is great for a fasting or detoxification program because it supports both phase I and II detoxification and builds up collagen to support healthy bones, discs in your back, your skin, ligaments, cartilage and tendons. I think bone soup can support wound healing, and j oint health all while soothing inflamed mucus membranes in the digestive trac t P erfect for IBS, leaky gut, C eliac and Crohns disease. G etting hungry yet? Because I always try w hat I write about, I bought s ome bones tonight and made the soup. It tasted g ood. I flavored it with fresh garlic, celery, carrots parsley and onions. I cooked it for five hours on low, although you could use a crock pot and let it simm er overnight. Bone marrow soup provides minerals, especially c alcium, magnesium and phosphorus. Great, becaus e t hese support bone, heart and muscle health... and they make your nails grow fast. When cooking the soup, add two teaspoons o f apple cider vinegar to helpe xtract the minerals from the bone. T o ramp up immune-boos ti ng properties, buy fresh or dried astragalus root, a wonderful Chinese herb.A dd one-quarter cup to your soup for the last 20 minutes, but dont do this if you take methotrexate or cyclophosphamide drugs. Skim the astragalus and an y f at/foam from the soup before consuming. I draw t he line at bones, but if yo u are friskier, make your soup with oxtail or chicken feet.

But do we know the historical real story? Let me take you back, all the way to Genesis 12:2, where God states to Abraham: I will make youi nto a great nation. Later on God tells the I sraelites that this is an everlasting covenant. God also tells them the borderso f their land, which is much larger then their prese nt borders. Now let me tell you about the Balfour declaration from Nov. 2, 1917, when Palestine was givenb y the English to the Jewish people. The outline o f Palestine was much larger then present day Israel. When Israel was finally a cknowledged by the UN, it was dwindled down to a v ery small piece of land. Israel accepted the borders of their new country, butt he Palestinians did not. It was the evening of May 14, 1948. That night all the n ew neighboring countries attacked Israel, but the J ews held their positions. Then came June 5, 1967. The famous Six Day War had started. Again, Israels Arab neighbors wanted tod estroy Israel; but, instead, Israel took Samaria and Galilee plus the Golan Heights and the Sinai. The Jews were the clear winners of this war, the gained land belonged to them. A nd again war came to Israel on Oct.6, 1973 in the f amous Yom Kippur War. The Arab neighbors started a surprise attack on the most Holy day of Israel. After initial retreat, Israel o nce again was able to fight the enemy and hold o n to their territories. This time around, the pressure is on once againw ith the support of all Muslim countries and most o f the countries of the world. But whose land is it? Did not God give it to the Israelites? Did they not wint heir wars twice fair and square? O n top of it, Israel treats the Palestinians very well. They get to govern most oft heir territory, they receive money from Israel, they r eceive most of their water and electricity from Israel. But here is what the P alestinians really want: All of Israel. The terror organization Hamas partn ers with Fatah in the negotiations. Hamas stated g oal is to eradicate Israel. Why does the world not see through this scheme? Because the prophecies of the Bible must come true. S oon a man will arise who will guarantee Israel peace and safety. The Bible calls him Anti-Christ. Yes, the stage is set for the second coming of Jesus. Reinhold Buxbaum is Pastor of The Way Church.

Jon Huntsman is joking that he wont bring up faith in a debate with fellow Mormon and rival for the Republican presidential nominationM itt Romney. Their Mormon faith became a flashpoint during the contest after a supporter of Texas Gov. Rick Perry likened it to a cult. Romney has called on Perry to repudiate the senti-m ent and the remarks made by that pastor; Perry has refused. H untsman opened his question during Monday nights debate on the economy by promising not to interjectt he issue. He then turned to Perry and chuckled, Sorry, Rick.

C M Y K Associated PressWASHINGTON For a v oter looking to preview next years presidential election, nothing placed the competing a rguments in sharper focus than a single day. T uesday unfolded in nearly split screen fashion, framed by President Barack Obama making his economic case ata Pittsburgh union training c enter, Republicans offering a rebuttal in a presidential debate at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire and Senate Democrats failing to overcome a Republican filibuster of Obamas $447 bil-l ion jobs bill on Capitol Hill. Whats happened in this c ountry, under the Obama administration, is that you have a president who I think is well-meaning but just over his head when it comes to thee conomy, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney said, summing up the Republican view during the GOPdebate. I ndeed, Republicans have built a thick brief against Obama that casts him as an ineffective naof, too willing to prime the economy with temporary measures, too eager to raise taxes and too willing to give government stifling regulatory powers. Obama, in turn, is defining his economic stewardship by giving credit to his policies, attributing the anemic recovery and persistent unemployment to factors beyond his control a tsunami in Japan, unrest in the Arab world and a potentially devastating European debt crisis and blaming congressional Republicans for blocking his latest jobs initiative. lot of folks are living week-to-week, paycheck-topaycheck, even day to day Obama said in Pittsburgh. They need action, and they need action now.... In other words, they want Congress to do your job. That the GOPpresidential debate, exclusively devoted to the economy, occurred on the same evening that the Senate cast its vote on Obamas jobs bill was coincidence. But both served to define Obamas Republican opposition and set the tone for the developing presidential contest. Obama had been campaigning for the bill, making strategic stops in key presidential battleground states and in the backyards of congressional Republican leaders. The strategy is designed to build public support for the bill, but also to serve Obamas long-term political goals. N o matter who emerges from the Republican field, Obamas camp already is sign aling that they will tie the GOPcontender to R epublicans in Congress. Their goal is to weigh down the Republican nominee with the burden of an institution held in little esteem, and toc onvince the country that Obamas opponent is simply a continuance of outside-themainstream GOPleadership. The Republican presidential candidates have now had many opportunities to articu-l ate a plan for economic recovery, Rep. Debbie W asserman Schultz, the chairman of the Democratic National Committee, said Tuesday. Instead, they have simply c ontinued their courtship of the tea party and its ideology, marching in lockstep with the Republicans in Congress. Obama also has been b uilding a defense against the expected Republican attacks. The year began with an expectation in the White House, matched by many economists, that the recovery would take hold. But over ten months, the country took hits from a disaster in Japan, Arab turmoil that contributed to high gasoline prices, and the threat of a Greek financial default with global repercussions. And then unfortunately, Washington got involved in a self-inflicted wound with the debt ceiling fiasco, Obama said during a meeting with his jobs council in Pittsburgh. And all those things, I think, led to both consumers and businesses taking a big step backwards and saying, we are just not sure where this thing is going. But Obama has hitched his political fate and the economys on his jobs plan. It would have extended and expanded payroll tax cuts, provided continued jobless benefits to the long-term unemployed, helped keept eachers and police officers on the job and paid for tens of billions of dollars in publ ic works projects. The legislation would have paid for it a ll with a surtax on millionaires. Obama has said he will now seek to divvy up the bill and seek passage of its component parts. T he competing, partisan views of such an economic stimulus go to the heart of presidential politics. Obama says the initial $825 billion stimulus that Obama succeeded in passingt hrough Congress in 2009 halted the recession and put t he economy on the path to recovery. He credits the governments intervention in the auto industry for savingG eneral Motors and Chrysler. The president has said his new plan would create as many as 1.9 million jobs and help boost economic growthb y as much as 2 percent. Republicans counter that the 2009 stimulus failed and left the country in its current straits, with snail paced growth and unemployment stuck at 9.1 percent. The Republican presidential field is offering a list of counterproposals. Texas Gov. Rick Perry is calling for greater domestic oil and gas exploration. Herman Cain wants a massive overhaul of the tax system, with a 9 percent corporate tax rate, a 9 percent individual tax rate and a 9 percent sales tax. Former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania is proposing a repeal of every regulation put in place during Obamas presidency that would cost the economy more than $100 million a year. Repeal them all, he said. Obama is already steeling himself. Members of Obamas own jobs council pressed him on Tuesday to consider the impact of health, environmental and financial rules onj obs. Obama said he was sympathetic to their plea and that his administration is u ndertaking a review of federal regulations. B ut in an argument he will likely make on the campaign trail, he said: Once we make all the regulations smarter, eliminate the dumb ones ands o forth, theres still going to be some tensions that exist around, you know, how much do we value this extra 10,000 jobs versus these extra hundred thousand asthma cases.

Clash over economy sets tone for 2012 election B y STEVE PEOPLES and PHILIPELLIOTT Associated PressHANOVER, N.H. P residential challenger Mitt Romney accused President Barack Obama of failing to lead in a time of economic peril but sounded less con-s ervative than his Republican rivals in their debate Tuesday night,d efending the 2008 Wall Street bailout and declaring he can work with goodD emocrats. Romney positioned hims elf closer to the center in line with his claim that he can draw crucial independ-e nt voters in next years general election. I n the debate, the first focusing on the nations economy, Obama took a verbal beating from all of the Republican challengers.A ll said they would handle U.S. economic problems far d ifferently from the man they hope to replace. But Texas Gov. Rick P erry, Romneys chief rival at this point in the camp aign, had to defend himself for not yet offering his own plan. Im not going to lay it out all for you tonight, he said. Mitts had six years to be working on a plan; Ive been working on thisf or about eight weeks but clearly were going to be focused initially on the energy industry in this country and makingA merican again independent. T he debate may do little to help Perry stop his recent slide in polls. With Romney and businessman Herman Cain getting more ques-t ions than the others, Perry often seemed to fade into the background. When each candidate was given a chance to ask aq uestion of anyone else, Romney directed his to Minnesota Rep. MicheleB achmann. His choice seemed to suggest that he doesnt see Perry as at hreat, and it might play well with female voters and w ith staunchly conservative voters in Iowa, where Perry needs to do well. S tealing a bit of attention from the debate, Romney p icked up New Jersey Gov. Chris Christies endorsement a few hours before it began. Hes hoping that endorsement, by a man con-s idered a possible major contender until recently, w ill help cement his support among the GOPestablishment and nurture ani mage that hes the partys inevitable nominee. T he Wall Street bailout is a particular sore point with many conservative voters w ho will play an important role in choosing the Republican nominee next winter and spring. Romney said no one likes t he idea of bailing out big firms. However, he said, many of the actions taken in 2008 and 2009 were needed to keep the dollarsv alue from plummeting and to make sure that we didn t all lose our jobs. Romney in debate: I can work with good Democrats

C M Y K By DAVID GERMAIN APMovie WriterTORONTO Nicolas Cage may be happy he got to work with Nicole Kidman and reunite with director Joel Schumacher on his new thriller Trespass. Yet Cage isnt thrilled that viewers will be able to watch the movie at home the same day it opens in a handful of theaters. The story of a family terrorized by home intruders, respass debuts Friday fora limited theatrical run in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago and seven other major markets. It will be available at the same time for home viewing through video on demand. The DVD and Blu-ray release follow barely two weeks later on Nov. 1, compared with a typical window of about four months between the time most Hollywood films open in theaters and debut on home video. Its a business decision that will help Trespass distributor Millennium Entertainment, an independent outfit that does not have the big marketing bucks of a Hollywood studio, make the most of its advertising dollars. Cage understands that, but he wishes the movie could have a separate life on the big-screen before it goes to smaller television and computer screens or even tiny cell-phone screens. I like movies to be seen the way the director wanted them to be seen, which is on the big-screen, with an audience, with their popcorn, Cage said in an interview alongside Schumacher at Septembers Toronto International Film Festival, where Trespass premiered. I want movies to be an event. I want people to get excited about it and go out for the night with their wife or their date, whatever it may be, and have it be an event. I dont want it to get smaller and smaller and wind up on a cell phone. Smaller distributors such as Magnolia Pictures and IFC Films often release films to theaters and video on demand around the same time. Some films can be watched at home ahead of their theatrical release, such as Kirsten Dunsts Melancholia, already available to rent through video services a month before it debuts in U.S. cinemas. With Academy Award winners Cage and Kidman, along with director Schumacher (Batman ForeverTime to Kill), Trespass arguably is the biggest test yet for simultaneous bigscreen and home releases. Cage stars as a diamond dealer taken hostage with his wife (Kidman by masked thugs looking for jewels and cash. Several studios experimented with plans offering video-on-demand rentals of films such as Adam Sandlers Just Go with It and Matt Damons The Adjustment Bureau just 60 days after their theatrical release. Those were expensive rentals $30 a pop and the timing was after the films already had done most of their business in theaters. As another test, Universal Pictures is offering home rentals of the Eddie MurphyBen Stiller action comedy ower Heist to viewers in Atlanta and Portland, Ore., just three weeks after its Nov.4 theatrical release. That one will cost $60 to rent, a hefty price for home viewing but potentially cheaper than movie tickets, popcorn and sodas for an entire family to see it in theaters. respass will be available to rent for as little as $6.99 through such sites and services as Amazon.com, Blockbuster and DirecTV. At that price, and since it plays only in 10 theaters, its fair to say that most viewers of Trespass will end up seeing it at home. By JAKE COYLE A PEntertainment WriterThe original Footloose may have had an absurd premise and not even a tacit acknowledgement of the existenceo f people any color besides white, but it was an s movie, after all. Its datedness and director Herbert Rosss great, toe-tapping title sequence is part of its kitschy charm. The cast, t oo, was exceptionally winning: Kevin Bacon as the upturned-collar out-oftowner, a radiant Lori Singer as ther ebellious preachers daughter, Chris Penn as the hayseed sidekick. Why anyone should bother to remake i t is an interesting question. It certainly could be substantially improved upon, b ut isnt that kind of like trying to build a better legwarmer? From a monetary perspective (which i s surely a dominant one here), this new Footloose situates the movie in the t ime of Step Up and the like. (The original followed the Flashdance craze.) From director Craig Brewers point of view, the purpose is to add a little grit and a modicum of plausibility,w hile updating the teen rebellion of Footloose to a new generation who m ight not think playing chicken on tractors is high entertainment. Theres the ring of remix right from t he get-go, with a DJ yelling Check one, two over Kenny Logginstitle t rack. Kenny Wormald, a former back-up dancer for Justin Timberlake, slides into B acons dance shoes as Ren MacCormack. Wormalds MacCormack hails from Boston, not Chicago, and brings a Southie accent. Wormald is considerably better on his feet thanB acon, who needed dancing doubles. Brewer, the talented Memphis director of Hustle & Flow and Black Snake Moan, reprises much of the original Footloose, scene for scene, some-t imes shot for shot. But he also expands the films world, fleshing out backstor ies and adding a little humor. Hes shifted it to the South and made thingss weatier. Ren is shunned as an outsider in the small town of Bomont, Ga., where a recent tragedy has made the town clamp down on teenagers, even outlawingd ancing. Ren quickly feels himself squeezed by small-mindedness, and he seeks release like any other teenager would: by furiously dancing in empty warehouses. H e soon sets his sights on Ariel (Julianne Hough town preacher (Dennis Quaid, taking John Lithgows place) and his wife (Andie MacDowell, in a step down from Dianne Wiest). Hough, also a dancing pro and multiple winner on Dancing W ith the Stars, resembles the younger sister of Jennifer Aniston. Spending much of the film strutting in boots, she brings more sexiness to the movie. The best casting decision is Miles Teller as Willard, the local who befriends Ren and gets the pleasure of the films trademark dance-lesson montage. The gangly and excellent Ray McKinnon, as Rens uncle, is also ac onsiderable addition. The two versions of Footloose are ultimately a tale of casting. In the original, a thoroughly likeable ensemble created a cheesy kind of movie magic outo f paltry, laughable material. Brewer has made a better, more colorful film, b ut his cast isnt nearly as memorable. The performances (excepting Tellers) a re a paler shade of the original, and theres considerably less chemistry to go around. Wormald and Hough are both handsome and good on the dance floor, but they come across more liket een stars in training than representations of real youth angst. Speaking of angst, one question: Line dancing? Brewer has added several updated dance sequences, including hip-h op and country line-dancing scenes. Yes, that wild, sinful expression of individuality known as country line dancing. These kids may have better technique, but they dont have the moves. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, October 14, 2011Page 11B FAIRMONT CINEMA; 1.736"; 6"; Black; 10/14/11; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 2 2 8 8 7 7 2 2 DIVERSIONS D earAbby: When my son Lyle told my husband and me that his wife, Becky, was leaving him and taking their kids whereh e would not be able to see them, we were shocked.

Your son w as lining up allies when he trashed her. Whether orn ot what he said about her was true or exaggerated, no one will regard her or him quite the way they did. What a shame. DearAbby: My motherin-law, Bernice, hasnt spoken to me since her son and I were married foury ears ago. We got along well prior to the wedding, but because I didnt let her make major decisions in the wedding she stopped speaking to me. I have done everything I can to mend our relationship sent her letters of apology, birthday gifts, etc. still no response. My husband is in the middle. I have really had it with Bernice and dont want to try to mend fences with her any longer, but my husband is very close to his mom and wants met o keep trying. What can I do? Please help. Daughter-In-Law D ilemma DearDaughter-In-Law: Y our husband isnt in the middle. His mother has been trying to push you outi n left field for four years, and he is unwilling to put h is foot down and stop her. If youre smart, you will take the high road and continue with the gifts on special occasions. With luck,s hell continue to ignore them and you wont have t o tolerate her. Amotherin-law who carries a grudge and thinks her suggestions are ironclad is a bona fide burden. Be g lad you dont have to suffer her presence, and keep your fingers crossed. DearAbby: My wife and I are the parents of three young boys ages 11, 8 and 3. My wife oftenw alks around our bedroom and bathroom naked, or topless with lacy underpants. I feel it is inappropriate for her to walka round in this manner and that she should take care to c over up, especially in front of the older boys.W hat do you think? Blushing in San Jose, Calif. DearBlushing: Although families haved ifferent standards regarding nudity, I think a touch of modesty is the best policy. If your wife enjoys being nude or topless int he confines of your bedroom and bathroom, she should keep the door shut, and ask that the boys knock and ask permission before entering.

C M Y K LIVING 12B PA GE News-Sun Friday, October 14, 2011IN HIS OWN WORDSNotable quotes from Steve Jobs: Its more fun to be a pirate than to join the navy In 1982, as quoted by former A pple CEO John Sculley in the book Odyssey: Pepsi t o Apple, You know, my main reaction to this money thing is that its humorous, all the attention to it, because its hardly the most insightful or valuable thing thats happened to me. Playboy, Feb. 1, 1985 Every once in a while a revolutionary product comes along that changes everything. Its very fortunate if you can work on just one of these in your career. ...

Just figure out whats next. NBC News, May 25, 2006 Most people make the mistake of thinking design is what it looks like. People think its this veneer that the designers are handed this box and told, Make it look good!Thats not what we think design is. Its not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works. New York Times Magazine, Nov. 30, 2003 I think humans are basically tool builders, and the computer is the most remarkable tool weve ever built. The big insight a lot of us had in the 1970s had to do with the importance of putting that tool in the hands of individuals. Lets say that for the same amount of money it takes to build the most powerful computer in the world you could make 1,000 computers with one-thousandth the power and put them in the hands of 1,000 creative people. Youll get more out of doing that than out of having one person use the most powerful computer in the world. Because people are inherently creative. They will use tools in ways the toolmakers never thought possible. And once a person figures out how to do something with that tool, he or she can share it with the other 999. Inc., April 1, 1989 echnology is nothing. Whats important is that you have a faith in people, that theyre basically good and smart, and if you give them tools, theyll do wonderful things with them. Its not the tools that you have faith in tools are just tools. They work, or they dont work. Its people you have faith in or not.
