C M Y K By FLOYD RIDER Special to the News-Sun Editors note: Operation Torch, the American and British invasion of North Africa that was the first step in pushing back the Axis powers in World War II, was launched on Nov. 8, 1942. Floyd Rider, a Lake Placid resident, was there. This is his story.From January 1942 until October of 1945, I was on active duty in the Navy. The Navy, for the most part, was good to me. I went in right off the farm as an Apprentice Seaman and in two years and nine months had been promoted to Chief Electricians Mate. After boot camp I was sent to electricians school. In August of 1942, I was assigned to the USS Joseph Hewes AP50, an amphibious transport. The Hewes was a converted freighter with a 400-man crew. We carried 1,200 soldiers headed for the invasion of Africa and all their equipment and supplies, including food, fuel and ammunition, to support them for 90 days. We had on board 17 landing barges, of various sizes, used to put all this ashore. We were typical of the ships used in the African invasion. My first job aboard was to care for all the batteries.

Its doubly hard in a down economy Its astronomically hard if you are blind. But Avon Park resident Bobby Talley is going to give it a go. Blind from meningitis at the age of four, 57-year-old Talley wants to show that there is a life after being handicapped, even an entrepreneurial spirit. I just want to give people something to do, Talley said about his proposed business of renting pedal boards, pavilions, tables, and various games in Donaldson Park. I think it will add to the entertainment atmosphere and fun. It will give people of all ages something to do, Talley said.

The issue was raised by Avon Park Middle School teacher Jean Federico during Tuesdays regular meeting. Assistant school superintendent Rebecca Fleck and the Management Information Systems department had worked for months to bring the district guidelines up to date with new technology. Federico said the policy in general was sensible and useful. Her concerns were limited to the blanket prohibition against friending or otherwise communicating with students on social networks like Facebook. Federico said teachers as they should be are encouraged to mentor students and build supportive connections. I have been sitting with (my students) face to face throughout middle school. I want to be able to stay with them and see them through high school. This is particularly important, she added, for those young people whose parents are too overwhelmed to help or simply dont care. In some cases, she said, often a childs only lifeline is provided by a teacher, but that even teens from supportive homes sometimes need extra help too. Federico told the NewsSun her daughter, now in college, is one of those examples.

That was the question that stalled the decision by County Commissioners to move forward with the planned 8-foot-wide multiuse path along Memorial and College drives just south of Avon Park. The proposed project stretches from Cornell Street south to the Memorial Elementary School with a branch turning west along College Drive to U.S. 27. Along that path chosen by County Engineer Ramon Gavarrete are several orange groves, which use the county right-of-way to park frui t trailers during the season. The $779,000 multi-use path funded in part by the Florida Department o f Transportation would require a fence along the side with the groves to prevent accidental interaction between path users and grove equipment. The fence would hinde r grove operations, according Gregg Hartt of Lake Placid, who spoke to the commission Tuesday on behalf of his Proposed multi-use path put on hold See PATH, page 8AJ.

C M Y K By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comAVON PARK Alocal author has recently gained more exposure after her submitted book was named Best Book of 2011 at the Florida Writers Association Conference in Orlando. Sunny Serafino, the author of nearly 10 books and one manuscript, is not a stranger to winning. Her book A Grandma for Christmas won first place in a similar contest back in 2008 and two others have also won distinctive awards as far back as 2004. Her most recent piece, Finding Amy, was awarded the Best Book title, was named first place by the Royal Palm Literary Award and beat out more than 300 other entries in the unpublished womens fiction genre. Finding Amy is expected to be published early 2012. Serafino describes writing as a longtime love. Ive wanted to write most of my life but life just got in the way. Raising children and jobs were the responsibility at that time. I only started to write when I retired, Serafino said. Serafino writes mostly in the womens fiction genre and describes her stories as tales about courageous women overcoming obstacles. Serafino also writes about family matters and Christian and inspirational issues. When Serafino isnt working on her next prize-winning book, she spend countless hours advising and encouraging beginning writers in the community. I teach a writing critique class. I want to help writers who are starting out. I love writing and I think its a gift, so I like to give back thats why I teach, Serafino said. The critique class is held at the Avon Park Library every Friday from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. Serafino also teaches a creative writing course at South Florida Community College. The creative writing course will begin in January and it is a six-week course, Serafino said. Serafino is also a professional speaker and visits churches and womens groups giving encouragement, empowerment, and advise to those in need. I enter (contests) all the time. You never know if you are going to win or not and its a challenge. It stretches your writing out of your comfort zone. You gain a lot of knowledge at contests. There is a lot of critiquing and advice you can gain and I wasnt expecting to win, but I did, Serafino said. Serafinos books all available on the Amazon.com. Two of her most popular stories Forgive and Never Look Back are available on Kindle. Serafino also sells autographed copies of her published works at sunnyserafino.blogspot.com/.

Their COMMUNITYBRIEFS Continued on page 5A News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY It was a standing room only crowd at the school board chamber Tuesday night, as families turned out to congratulate the students who achieved perfect scores on the 2010 FCAT. By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING It took three days to introduce all the students who achieved perfect scores on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test in 2010 to the members of the school board, in total 155 students. Presentations were made Oct. 4, Oct. 24 and the final was on Tuesday. School board chairperson Donna Howerton spoke for the board Thursday when she expressed her admiration for the students and the schools they attend. It was phenomenal the number of students at both elementary and secondary levels of perfect FCAT scores. Great job to all students in their focus on academics with the many other activities they include. Also great job, she said, emphasizing the word great, to The School Board of Highlands County employees in their involvement with each of our students. It was great to see that support, along with family and community members who came out to recognize our students also. Among those young scholars who answered every question correctly were a handful who went even further achieving perfect scores on more than one test, or being the only student to ace a particular subject area on the test. For example, Carson Angell, from Sun N Lake Elementary was the only student in the district to achieve perfect scores in three subjects math, reading and writing. Robert Williams, at the time in the eighth grade at Hill-Gustat Middle School, was the only secondary student in the district to have a perfect score in science. Other students also excelled in more than one subject. At the secondary school level, Benjamin Collins, at the time in the eighth grade in Sebring Middle School, aced reading and writing, and Dante Lepe, then a sixth-grader at HillGustat, aced reading and math. At the elementary level, Isabella Knott of Fred Wild Elementary School was perfect in reading and math. At Lake Placid Elementary, Kathryn Smoak was perfect in science and math. At Sun N Lake Elementary, in addition to Carson, 23 students achieved perfect scores, five in more than one subject: Gil Ivo De Los Reyes in writing and math; Chance Galas in writing and reading; Paolo Pineda in writing and math; Briana Quinn for writing and math; Baily Travers for writing and math; and Christopher Wolf for writing and reading. Acomplete list of the students who earned perfect scores is posted with this story on www.newssun.com.

We honor our brave men and women who have proudly served this great Nation, for they are the fabric from which our flag has been woven. Armistice Day, as this commemoration was first proclaimed, recognized the day the ceasefire was signed during World War I, putting an end to hostilities on Nov. 11, 1918, at 11 a.m., on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. Armistice Day was first designated to honor those who fought in World War I, which was said to be a war to end war. Unfortunately, it didnt. Following World War II and the Korean War, Congress replaced the word Armistice with Veterans in 1954 to honor all American veterans. It is easy to recognize our veterans as active-duty service members who are very visible due to our ongoing operations overseas. However, the majority of veterans we honor today no longer actively serve wearing a military uniform. Many have gone on to become teachers, police officers, firemen and neighbors.Whether they wear the military uniform today, or wore it decades ago, veterans represent an unwavering dedication and exemplify the highest ideals of service to our Nation. Today, on Veterans Day, we are still a Nation at war. Oct. 7, 2011 marked the 10th anniversary of the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan in response to the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on U.S. soil. Today, we honor the unwavering courage of the men and women who have served in our Armed Forces, including those in the ongoing efforts of securing our Nation and in their continuing fight against terrorism. Our men and women in uniform both past and present, have been, and are, the most powerful line of defense in all conflicts against enemies who set out to harm our way of life. The true strength of our military is the spirit and skill of the men and women who have worn the service uniforms of our nation. They have answered the call to duty from all across America. Over the course of the last year alone, our airmen have remained focused on our missions in Afghanistan, Iraq, and in the fight against al Qaeda and its affiliate networks around the world. Airmen are justifiably proud to be part of the joint team that finally brought Osama bin Laden to justice this year. At the same time, they have maintained constant vigilance defending America through our continuous air sovereignty, space, cyber, and nuclear deterrence missions. But thats not all we asked our airmen to do this year. In addition to these efforts, they have been busy demonstrating their capability to respond successfully to other unexpected events. This includes working with our NATO allies and other partners in operations in Africa, as well as providing timely disaster relief to our friends in Japan following the terrible earthquake and tsunami. Closer to home, our airmen helped their fellow Americans battle wildfires, hurricanes, and other severe weather in the United States. Our airmen, like all of our veterans, make us exceedingly proud each day. Today, approximately 223,000 airmen are actively engaged in some type of operation. Thats roughly 43 percent of our Air Force. As you look at the numbers, its easy to focus only on our airmen who are far from home, separated from love ones for six or maybe 12 months, doing the nations work. But Veterans Day is not only about recognizing those deployed airmen. Veterans Day also recognizes the noble service of all service members who report for duty every day to carry on the fight from the home front and, all of our veterans past and present who have helped maintain the sovereignty of our Nation whether they are overseas or at home. As our service members depart from our shores, we look forward to their safe return home. But we know that some of them will not. It is our responsibility to honor those who return home, especially our wounded warriors. And, we must never forget those who paid for our freedom with the ultimate sacrifice. We must also honor the families of our veterans, who sacrifice in their own, often uncelebrated ways. As long as we remain engaged in prolonged conflict, airmen and family support will continue to be a key focus area of our Air Force leadership, and we will always recognize and honor their accomplishments and sacrifices to our Nation. America is fortunate to have service members who exemplify commitment to duty, willingly display valor under fire, and favor humility over glory. This notion of selflessness and sacrifice the likes of which are exhibited each and every day by airmen, soldiers, sailors, marines and coast guardsmen is the bedrock of our all-volunteer force. To our veterans our service members of all ages who have engaged in combat, stability and humanitarian operations, we honor you. To those service members who paid the ultimate price or who are still missing or unaccounted for, we honor you by remembering the sacrifices you and your families made for our great Nation. So, today is a day of honor and a day to honor.On this day of celebration and reflection, I thank everyone who has worn a U.S. military uniform for their honorable service and for our freedom.

The News-Sun has a long history of encouraging public discussion through letters, guest columns, and Readers Response questionnaires. Providing this forum for our readers is a pleasure, not an obligation. First the bad news. Too often the school board chamber echoes due to the fact that its empty. When people do attend, it is a safe bet they are principals, teachers, or the random set of parents who want to transfer their child to a different school. Put it this way a person doesnt need both hands to count the typical audience, no matter how important the issue being discussed. Now for the good news. Tuesday night the board room wasnt just filled, it was filled to overflowing. One gentleman, caught in the reception area and unable to get into the room itself because of the crowd, said he lost count at 51. There were perhaps three times that number inside. Every chair was taken and people lined the walls, in places two deep. It was a wonderful sight. Which leads to the best news why so many turned out. Tuesday night, the school board honored the secondary students who achieved perfect scores on their Florida Comprehensive Assessment Tests in 2010. An equally large group of elementary students were recognized at an earlier date. In all, 155 students managed perfection in either reading or math; and a handful managed that in both. Remember what this means every question was answered correctly. Just as encouraging was the number of parents who took the time to watch their children shine. Yes, we know, this kind of success and support creates a problem for the school board the kind of problem every school board wishes it had, which is how to better accommodate that large an audience. Asuggestion was made that the occasion be moved to the Board of County Commissioners Chamber at the Government Center, but we think its better to keep the celebration in house, so to speak. This is the result of students and teachers working together. There are no politics involved here. There must be a space at one of the high schools where everyone would fit. And, while were at it, why not really make it special, add a little refreshment and cheer, like congratulatory punch and scholarly cake give everyone a chance to savor the moment. Heaven knows the FCATremains the 800-pound gorilla in the room, its fairness and how its data are used always in question. It is a dreaded pressure hanging over studentsheads throughout the school year, and now over teachers as well. Young people who remain focused, read quickly with complete comprehension which is what it takes, after all, to answer every question correctly deserve more than a little credit. Its like batting 1.000 in baseball. We extend our admiration to every one of these students, congratulations to their families, and gratitude to the teachers, administrators, and support personnel who worked together to make it happen. It took about a half hour for school board members to shake each students hand. After the ceremony, School Board member Andy Tuck was sure Highlands County must have the highest percentage of perfect scores in the state. We checked. It turns out the state board of education doesnt track the number of perfect scores, so there is no way of knowing, but Tuesday night it certainly seemed as if Tuck must be right. Taking a moment to brag Today we have bad news, good news and best news about the Highlands County school district.

C M Y K ed from all kinds of mentors. Beyond the importance of inspiring students and providing encouragement, however, Federico said the fear of using social networks was over stated. Facebook, she told the board, is so public it has total accountability. But, if I call a student on the phone nobody knows (what was said). Facebook is actually more accountable. There is a generation gap as well, Federico told the News-Sun. Adifference between adults who grew up before the computer age, and the young people who were born into it and cant imagine the pre-computer world. Our students are native speakers, Federico said, quoting one of her own mentors, were immigrants to this world. It is not our first language. (The district) had a noble intent, but Im just feeling they overreacted. Board members were inclined to agree. Member Andy Tuck said he had gotten multiple calls about the issue. He had voted reluctantly for the prohibition, thinking it went too far. I basically thought we were covering our rear ends, he said. School board attorney John McClure explained that the policy was put into place so action could be taken in the event of inappropriate behavior. Tuck replied that, We should have a policy against inappropriate behavior, not a blanket prohibition. McClure added that social networking is a subject of intense debate among school board attorneys in general. It is not a problem unique to Highlands County. He recommended a review, and the school board agreed, Chair Donna Howerton saying, we live in a different world. stories are unique, clever and humorous. The secondand fourthgraders of Lake Placid will be at the museum Monday through Wednesday. The students will learn methods used in everyday life 100 years ago. They will also tour the caboose and jail. Public hours for those days will be from noon to 3 p.m.Leveys signing booksSEBRING The HCA November show at the Art and Music Gallery this Saturday at 6 p.m. at the Kenilworth Lodge will also include a book signing by local writers Larry and Elaine Levey. In 1996, the Leveys compiled a photo-history of the county, called, Yesterday: AFamily Album of Highlands County, published by the News-Sun in 1997. The book won a second place award that year from the Florida Press Association in the local history category. Larry, still a News-Sun correspondent, and Elaine, director of the Depot Museum in Avon Park, now own the copyright to the book and recently had it reprinted. The book is made up of 128 pages, with 265 historic black-and-white photos, most from the countys three historical societies.

C M Y K By CHRISTINE ARMARIO APEducation WriterBOCARATON Floridas Board of Governors on Wednesday agreed on a path to create a 12th state university that will focus on strengthening science and technology education. The board, which oversees Floridas State University System, voted to approve a series of steps for the University of South Florida Polytechnic in Lakeland to become an independent institution. The resolution passed Wednesday sets nine different criteria in order for USF Polytechnic to become independent. The first is to achieve separate accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. Once that is accomplished, the university has to develop programs in the STEM fields and enroll at least 1,244 students. Fifty percent of those students must be in STEM fields, and another 20 percent must be in STEM-related programs. The university also needs to construct a science and technology building, a wellness center and residence halls. Other steps include establishing financial aid and other student services. The board will monitor the universitys progress and do a final review once all conditions have been met. If conditions are met, the USF branch will become a separate university. All those benchmarks are very doable, said state Sen. JD Alexander, R-Lake Wales, who has advocated for the branch to become an independent institution. Alexander said he believes that could be accomplished within three to five years, though other officials said it could take as long as a decade. The meeting took place at Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton and was widely attended by USF students, community and policy leaders. barge used two big heavy duty batteries. This totaled about 24, then we also had about 20 spares. Also on the ship the telephone system was battery-powered and this required another bank of batteries. Altogether, I had 60 some batteries and it was my responsibility to keep them fully charged. We put our troops ashore near Fedala, south of Casablanca. We had been at battle stations for three nights and four days, when suddenly, just at dark on the fourth day Nov. 11, 1942 battle stations were secured. First and third sections were sent to the showers and second section took the watch. This left me on a search light platform about 20 feet above the main deck. Afew minutes later, I heard this guy screaming in the second power phone, Torpedo on the port bow! About the time I realized what he had said, the platform I was standing on tossed me in the air. When I came back down, I was fortunate to land on the platform again. As I was scrambling to try to get on my feet, several tons of water came down around me. The captain immediately ordered the anchor hoisted and signaled the engine room full speed astern. We were only three miles off the beach and apparently his attempt was to beach the ship. What the skipper could not know was that the steam lines to the anchor engine had been ruptured, so the anchor could not be hoisted. Remember, also, that this was an old ship and it took time to get the turbine up and running. The torpedo had hit about 100 feet back from the bow and broke the hull wide open. We were taking on water and the bow was already sinking. By the time the engine room got the shaft turning the screw was coming out of the water, so we didnt move. Amoment later the captain came out on the flying bridge and called in my direction, Pass the word, abandon ship. That was the last time I saw the captain, as he followed the old Navy tradition and went down with his ship. Anew directive was issued some time later that said in effect, no more of that. Upper echelons realized that we could needlessly lose a lot of good men with that tradition. On the third and fourth days of the invasion, our ship had been acting as a temporary hospital. We had put out all of our troops and supplies ashore and were now taking on the wounded from the beach. We had 50 some wounded men below decks. Im not sure how it was accomplished, but we got every one off in the 17 minutes we had before the ship slid under the water. We lost more than 100 crew members and soldiers. Of the 17 landing barges we started with, we only had three left. These were in the water and were manned.. They started coming alongside, so that men climbing down the nets could step right into the barge. Acouple of ships which were not far away also sent their barges. The nets were all centered amidships, but all of these we put some lines down over the side for men to slide down to the barges. My station was at the head of one of these lines. I was to help men get started down. Aman about ready to go over the side, showed me his expensive gold wristwatch. He was concerned about what the salt would do to his watch if he had to go in the water. Talk about stupid things we do, would you believe I took the time to fold up his watch and wrap it in electrical tape? He went over the side and I never saw him again. The last man to come to my station was a young fellow who looked to be about 15 years old. Im sure he was too young to be in the Navy, but here he was. His problem was that he had broken his arm a couple of weeks back and the arm was still in a cast. He was afraid he would not be able to hold himself on the line, so I got over the side on the line and then had him get on right above me. I told him if he had trouble holding on, to just slide down until his feet were on my shoulders so I could help hold him back from going too fast. We slid down with no trouble, until I came to the end of the line. I looked down and I was still seven or eight feet above the barge. I looked up and yelled, Let go. He did and we both fell in the barge. However, as he landed on top of me, he had his arm with the cast extended in such a way that it struck the edge of the barge and broke his arm again. The barge pulled away from the ship and, in my minds eye, I can still see the screw, well above the water and silhouetted against the sky.Amoment more and the USS Joseph Hewes was gone. Eventually, I was returned to the states and sent to Brooklyn Navy Yard for some more schooling. When I graduated, I was given three choices of sea duty. I asked for destroyer duty in the South Pacific and got destroyer escort duty in the north Atlantic. I went to Houston, Texas to be part of a crew being assembled to man a new destroyer escort, the J. Richard Ward DE 243. This was to be my home for the next 27 months. www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, November 11, 2011Page 7A COWPOKES WATERING HOLE; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black plus three; process, 11/11/11; 00013780 JOHNSON, HAROLD S.; 3.639"; 5"; Black; battery b; 00013784 Zeno's Italian Restaurant P; 3.639"; 2"; Black; 11/11/11; 00013789 JD FINANCIAL; 3.639"; 4"; Black plus three; process, business; 00013794 WILKES, W.

C M Y K mother, Joan Hartt, who owns the 20 acres of citrus along the proposed path. Hartt explained that several grove owners would have to remove productive trees and that the introduction of the fence would create driveways at certain gaps that would be costly for everyone. Gavarrete added that the land owners would have to seek costly driveway permits because of new code requirements. Hartt explained that since the county created the problem, they should be responsible for building the driveways. Gavarrete disagreed, saying that building the driveways with county money would set a bad example. I am uncomfortable with setting this precedent, Gavarrete said. Gavarrete also explained that several trees that have been in the county right of way for 10 plus years would have to be removed. It will be the owners responsibility to remove the trees, at their expense, Gavarrete told the commission about a legal opinion he had sought. Why does this have to go here? Hartt asked the board. There are better places to put the path that would get a lot more use. The proposed path will cost (his mothers grove) about $44,000 this year in production and about $125,000 over the life of the trees, Hartt explained. Acompromise motion from Commissioner Don Elwell, which split the difference 50/50, failed on a 2-2 vote with Commissioner Greg Harris in support and Jack Richie and Chair Barbara Stewart in opposition. We are right back where we were a couple of weeks ago, Elwell said about the absence of Commissioner Ron Handley. Handley had a long-standing commitment that he could not move, according to Stewart at the beginning of the meeting. The board was able to reach a consensus with a 4-0 vote to table the issue, seeking further input from the public and land owners before moving forward. The path is scheduled to be on the agenda on Nov. 22. We see this business as a benefit for Avon Park to promote the downtown area by bringing in groups to enjoy Donaldson Park. It would be a great opportunity for groups such as birthday parties, reunions, community fun events, church groups and businesses to offer family oriented, fun daycations and staycations, Talley wrote in his business plan. Talley spoke to the Avon Park City Council in September, seeking permission to use Donaldson Park to host his business Sight Unseen Enterprises. Council had no objections, and even encouraged Talley and his helper Judy McCarter to pursue his goal. Talley also approached the Main Street Community Redevelopment Agency Advisory Committee on Wednesday, and received support in his dream of being a business owner. This is what we are looking for in the downtown area, said CRADirector Wes Hoagland. According to Talleys business plan, he is aware of the goal of Avon Park to support and promote economic development activities in core areas of the city including the Main Street District, and that there is a need for more family centered events in the Mains Street District. Monica Doyle, contracted with the Florida Department of Vocational Rehabilitation, is working with Talley to help him reach his goals of self-employment. Based on our market research, there is a demand for more family and group oriented activities in Donaldson Park, wrote Doyle in a recent presentation to the Main Street Community Redevelopment Agency. Talley lives on South Verona Avenue and is a lifelong resident of Avon Park, but has lived a sheltered life up to this point, Doyle said. I have been working with Bobby over the past few months to develop a business model as he wants to be able to earn an income, and become an active and participating member of the community, Doyle said. He has a lot to offer the community, Doyle added. Talley said he chose this type of business for several reasons, including the fact he could walk to work and that his business would be recreational in nature. It is our goal to offer a one stop solution to groups. They can bring their own food, or Sight Unseen Enterprises can recommend local catering options which would benefit local businesses as well, Talley said. In addition to groups, individuals can choose to rent the equipment that Sight Unseen Enterprises has to offer, Like bocce ball, croquet, ladder ball, bean bag toss and badminton. Sight Unseen Enterprises could also rent tennis rackets, checkers and other items along with the pedal boat rentals. I just want to give people something to do, and families activities they can share, Talley said.

The verdict Thursday came against Neil Doherty, who is jailed in Broward County awaiting trial on criminal charges related to a different abuse case. Doherty has pleaded not guilty in the criminal case. Attorney Jeff Herman said the verdict is the first against Doherty himself. About 20 lawsuits have been filed against the Archdiocese of Miami involving similar allegations against Doherty. Many have been settled out of court. Herman says there may not be much money to collect from Doherty. But Herman says the verdict will help the victim heal and send a message that such conduct is intolerable.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING It was the sort of beginning one might expect for a young and inexperienced team in itsfirst competition of the season. But the ending was anything but as the Lady Blue Streaks launched a valiant comeback before falling to Okeechobee in overtime, 47-45, Tuesday in the opener of the Sebring Tip-Off Tournament. Weve only got two seniors and only one thats got a lot of varsity experience, head coach Mike Lee said. So there were mistakes, obviously. Things were rushed early, with the Streaks often moving too fast for their own good, as the Lady Brahmans steadily built up an 11-4 lead by the end of the first quarter. That lead grew to as much as 29-13, before Sebring ran off seven straight just before halftime to make it a 29-20 game. Back and forth it went in the second half, with the Streaks matching Okeechobee point for point, but that still kept the margin at nine points as time started to wind down in the final period. But then, trailing 37-28, April Wallace drove for two. After a Brahman bucket, Shalontay Rose scored, as did Allie Mann, who also then converted two free throws to make it 39-36. Mann then came through with a threepointer that tied it with under a minute to play, bringing the home crowd Lady Streaks comeback falls short Okeechobee47Sebring45 News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE April Wallace drives toward the basket in Tuesdays Tip-Off Tournament opener. See STREAKS, Page 4B Special to the News-SunThe Highlands Youth Football and Cheer Organization (HYFC) participated in round one of the Sunshine PALPlayoffs as the newest youth football and cheer program in Highlands County, as well as team in the Police Athletic League (PAL) association. The top six teams in each division of PALwere seeded in a playoff spot with the number one and two teams getting a bye on the first round. Coach Cliff Howells Junior Varsity and Coach John Bishops Varsity teams have faced some very strong teams along the way this season. Coach Howell and Bishop both played significant roles in forming HYFC. They have put countless hours into structuring this league, forming their teams and developing their players throughout this entire season. These coaches are dedicated and committed to this league and believe in the mission and goals of HYFC which is providing a rewarding youth sports program to make a difference in the lives of these boys and girls through mentoring and guidance in order to develop sportsmanship, physical fitness and build their self esteem as well as provide them an opportunity to be part of a team. The Junior Varsity team took fourth place in itsdivision of PALand traveled to Cook Field in Haines City to take on the fifth-place Auburndale Bulls. This JVteam has faced some tough teams along the way with some exciting close scoring games. With an unfailing defense, this team has not allowed more than 13 points scored on them all season long. Having faced the Bulls mid-season in a tough defensive game, the Eagles knew this was going to be a challenge. But they came in prepared from two weeks of practice and were looking forward to the rematch. In the opening drive of the game, fullback Akem JnPierre was able to get around the end and went the distance to score a 55-yard touchdown. The Bulls didnt allow for the extra point, giving the Eagles an early lead, 6-0. The Bulls answered with a touchdown of their own, but the Eagles defense thwarted their efforts to earn the extra point making the score 6-6. The game then became a defensive battle between the talons and horns. The Eagles offense, lead by quarterback Sammy Smith, drove down the field with key yardage made by Jalen Williams, CJ Harris, Rafael Smith and JnPierre. The Eagles made it to the red zone when a pass from Smith to Harris was bobbled in the end zone, taking the teams into halftime still tied 6-6. The second half battle continued with the physically powerful defense led by Williams, JnPierre and Anthony Big A Healy, with some key tackles made by Timothy Jordan, Anthony Robinson, Rodrigo Nolan and Smith.

By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comStarting out the season at the height o f intensity, Sebring and Lake Placid took to the pitch Tuesday at Roge r Scarborough Memorial Stadium, with the Streaks eking out a 1-0 win. Strong programs, each, with the county rivalry added in, the two teams battled tooth-and-nail through a scoreless first half. The scoreboard was marked, however, early in the second half when Marcelo Gori got free and fired one in tha t would prove to be the difference. Sebring has an afternoon contest Saturday against Avon Park a t 3:30 p.m. at home, while the Dragons were at Clewiston Thursday. Sebring edges Dragons News-Sun photo by ED BALDRIDGE Kayla Wilson pulls down a rebound in Avon Parks win over George Jenkins during the opening night of the Preseason Tournament Tuesday. By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK Highlands County teams racked up the wins on Tuesday night in Avon Park during the Bill Jarrett Tip-Off Tourney. In the late game, Avon Park overpowered George Jenkins 63-38,. The Devils used speed and their shooting ability to jump ahead early in the game. Avon Park was up by 10 points in the first few minutes before George Jenkins answered for two. The Devils kept the pace up until the half before tapering off to a single digit score in the fourth. Brekayla English lead the Devil attack, netting 23 points for the night. Toryana Jones followed English with 13 points and forward Johntavia Perry hit for a respectable nine. I am very proud of the girls. We slowed a bit at the end, and we need to work on our free throws this week in practice, but overall we are off to a good start, said Avon Park head coach Paulette Daley.Dragons soar past EaglesEarlier that evening, the Lady Devils, Dragons start out strong See HOOPS, Page 4B

C M Y K The game was winding down and both teams went scoreless in the second half, sending it into overtime. The Eagles won the toss to receive the ball first in the Kansas City tiebreaker. The Eagles offensive drive was persistent with a couple of costly penalties preventing them from getting into the end zone. The Bulls fullback then broke through just enough to cross the goal line and score, resulting in a devastating loss for the Eagles. The 12-6 final score capped off the Eagles 6-4 record for the season. Coach Howell and his staff are very proud of their players and how hard they have played and how much they have grown as a team and young men. Coach Howell would like to thank the parents of his team for the support and cooperation during the season. Coach Bishops Varsity team took sixth place in their division of PALand traveled to Westwood Middle School in Auburndale to face the third-place Lakeland Patriots. The Varsity boys had some retribution in mind, having lost to Lakeland earlier in the season, 25-0. From the opening kickoff, it quickly was obvious that this game was going to be a defensive battle. Defensive lineman Anibal Kulian, leading the Eagles defense with his persistence and determination, quickly made his presence known as he swooped right into the Patriots backfield multiple times. The Eagles defense dominated the first half, with Malik Taylor nabbing an interception and Anthony Oppold and Lane Hammond making numerous tackles to keep the Patriots off the board. Still scoreless as the game headed into the third quarter, the Patriots scored a touchdown on a 60-yard run. This would be the only score the Eagles defense would allow. Eagles quarterback Cole Kilgo completed passes to Allen Williams and Malik Taylor to make some key yardage, but all their efforts were blocked by the Patriots defense. And in the end, it was a heartbreaking, 7-0 loss for the Eagles, eliminating them from the championship run. The Eagles Varsity had a great season, finishing at 5-5 and making the playoffs. Coach Bishop and his coaching staff are very proud of these young men, how hard they played and the efforts they made during this playoff game. Even though the Eagles have been eliminated from the playoffs, Highlands Youth Football will be hosting round two of the Sunshine PALPlayoffs on Saturday, Nov. 12, at Avon Park High School. Come on out to support the PALassociation and enjoy a day of good competitive youth football games. Games begin at 9 a.m. with admission $5 for adults and $4 for children. www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, November 11, 2011Page 3B HARDER HALL GOLF COURSE; 3.639"; 3"; Black; sports; 00013740 Rotary WGD; 7.444"; 7"; Black; rotary wgd; 00013776 JOHNSON, HAROLD S.; 3.639"; 5"; Black; avon park air force range; 00013785 MUSSELMAN APPLIANCES; 3.639"; 4"; Black; sports; 00013800 JOHNSON, HAROLD S.; 3.639"; 5"; Black; avon park air force range; 00013785 HARDER HALL GOLF COURSE; 3.639"; 3"; Black; sports; 00013740 Rotary WGD; 7.444"; 7"; Black; rotary wgd; 00013776 MUSSELMAN APPLIANCES; 3.639"; 4"; Black; sports; 00013800 Golf HammockLast Monday, Nov. 7, the Mezza Group played Individual Pro-Am Points at Golf Hammock Country Club.

ARMAS Associated PressSTATE COLLEGE, Pa. Joe Paterno was fired by the Penn State board of trustees Wednesday night despite saying he would retire as coach after the football season ended, brought down by the growing furor over the handling of child sex abuse allegations against an assistant coach. Penn State President Graham Spanier was also ousted. I am disappointed with the board of trusteesdecision, but I have to accept it, the 84-year-old Paterno said in a statement. Atragedy occurred, and we all have to have patience to let the legal process proceed. Paterno, the winningest coach in major college football history, learned of the boards decision at the end of a day that began with his decision to finish out his 46th season and leave. It was not to be. The university is much larger than its athletic teams, board vice chair John Surma said during a packed news conference. Paterno and Spanier were informed by telephone of the unanimous decisions to remove them. We were unable to find a way to do that in person without causing further distraction, Surma said. Defensive coordinator Tom Bradley will serve as interim coach while Rodney Erickson will be the interim school president. The university scheduled a news conference with Bradley for Thursday morning. The Penn State board of trustees tonight decided it is in the best interest of the university to have a change in leadership to deal with the difficult issues that we are facing, Surma said. The past several days have been absolutely terrible for the entire Penn State community. But the outrage that we feel is nothing compared to the physical and psychological suffering that allegedly took place. Asked what Paterno did wrong, Surma said: I cant characterize that. We thought because of the difficulties that have engulfed our university, it was necessary to make changes. Speaking outside his home, Paterno said: Right now, Im not the football coach. And Ive got to get used to that. After 61 years, Ive got to get used to it. I appreciate it. Let me think it through. His wife, Sue, was tearyeyed as she blew kisses to about 100 students on the lawn. Youre all so sweet. And I guess we have to go beat Nebraska without being there. We love you all. Go Penn State, she said. Hundreds of students gathered about two blocks from the campus, with some chanting We want Joe! We want Joe! Some shook a lamp post and others tipped over a news van, kicking out its windows. Police fired bursts of pepper gas. Paterno said in a statement earlier Wednesday that he was absolutely devastated by the abuse case, in which his former assistant and onetime heir apparent, Jerry Sandusky, has been charged with molesting eight boys over 15 years, with some of the alleged assaults taking place at the Penn State football complex. This is a tragedy, Paterno said. It is one of the great sorrows of my life. With the benefit of hindsight, I wish I had done more. Paterno has come under harsh criticism including from within the community known as Happy Valley for not taking more action in 2002 after then-graduate assistant and current assistant coach Mike McQueary came to him and reported seeing Sandusky in the Penn State showers with a young boy. Paterno notified the athletic director, Tim Curley, and a vice president, Gary Schultz. Paterno is not a target of the criminal investigation, although Curley and Schultz have been charged with failing to report the incident to the authorities. The firings came three days before Penn State hosts Nebraska in its final home game of the season, a day usually set aside to honor seniors on the team. The ouster of the man affectionately known as JoePa brings to an end one of the most storied coaching careers not just in college football but in all of sports. Paterno has 409 victories a record for major college football won two national titles and guided five teams to unbeaten, untied seasons. He reached 300 wins faster than any other coach. Penn State is 8-1 this year, with its only loss to powerhouse Alabama. The Nittany Lions are No. 12 in The Associated Press poll. After 19th-ranked Nebraska, Penn State plays at Ohio State and at No. 16 Wisconsin, both Big Ten rivals. It has a chance to play in the Big Ten championship game Dec. 3 in Indianapolis, with a Rose Bowl bid on the line. The board had already said it would appoint a committee to investigate the circumstances that resulted in the indictment of Sandusky, and of Curley and Schultz. In Washington, the U.S. Department of Education said it has launched an investigation into whether Penn State failed to report incidents of sexual abuse on campus, as required by federal law. Sandusky, who retired from Penn State in June 1999, maintained his innocence through his lawyer. Curley has taken a leave of absence and Schultz has decided to step down. They also say they are innocent. The committee will be appointed Friday at the boards regular meeting, which Gov. Tom Corbett said he plans to attend, and will examine what failures occurred and who is responsible and what measures are necessary to ensure similar mistakes arent made in the future. Surma said McQueary would retain his job for now. Sandusky founded The Second Mile charity in 1977, working with at-risk youths. It now raises and spends several million dollars each year for its programs. Paterno is listed on The Second Miles website as a member of its honorary board of directors, a group that includes business executives, golfing great Arnold Palmer and several NFLHall of Famers and coaches, including retired Pittsburgh Steelers stars Jack Ham and Franco Harris. PSU trustees fire Paterno, Spanier to itsfeet. The decibal level went up another notch when Jamiese Wiley got an offensive rebound and put it back in to give Sebring itsfirst lead of the game. Things quieted down, however, when Okeechobee got a short jumper to tie it up again at 41-41 and send the game into an extra period. Rose got the scoring started in the overtime with a lay-up, but the Streaks would get just two more free throws as the rest of their scoring, while the Lady Brahmans got two field goals and two free throws to provide for the final margin. Were learning, but it was a great effort and the girls played hard, Lee said. This is a very coachable group of girls with great attitude. There are a lot of little things to work on, but theyre listening and doing what were talling them, so its exciting. Sebring closed out the season-opening tournament Thursday against Bartow before heading into the regular-season start Tuesday against visiting Hardee. See Sundays News-Sun for a recap of Thursdays action. Continued from 1B Streaks rally, fall in OT News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Shalontay Rose had the upper hand at the opening tip of Tuesdays tournament game with Okeechobee. ladies from Lake Placid set the pace over Walker Memorial Academy and ended with a 54-38 victory over the private school. Ball handling, said Lake Placids new head coach Jackie Coyne. One area we need to concentrate on, but overall I liked what I saw. Coyne, who hails from Pittsburgh, took over the helm for the Dragons recently, but was still happy with the results despite the short practice time. We have a ways to go., but we are learning, she said. We only had three days of practice, but I am pleased with what I saw. The Dragons also jumped out early in the game, leading 35-15 at the half, but also tapered off in the second, allowing Walker some steals and quick presses while Coyne went to her deep bench. Arnetia Gobourne topped the Lake Placid offense with 17 points. Kunshe Wilson, a returning senior, followed with 14 points and Jamacia Gayle was able to hit nine from the outside. We did everything we were looking to do, Coyne added. But I think we got a little comfortable near the end. We are going to work on playing 32 minutes o f basketball. The tournament continued Thursday night with Avon Park facing Walke r and the Dragons taking on Jenkins. See Sundays News-Sun for recaps of the Bill Jarret t Tip-Off Tournament finale.

Special to the News-SunAdiabetic foot ulcer is an open sore or wound that occurs in approximately 15 percent of patients with diabetes, and is commonly located on the bottom of the foot. Of those who develop a foot ulcer, six percent will be hospitalized due to infection or other ulcer-related complication. Diabetes is the leading cause of nontraumatic lower extremity amputations in the United States, and approximately 14 to 24 percent of patients with diabetes who develop a foot ulcer have an amputation. Research, however, has shown that the development of a foot ulcer is preventable.Who can get them?Anyone who has diabetes can develop a foot ulcer. Native Americans, African Americans, Hispanics and older men are more likely to develop ulcers. People who use insulin are at a higher risk of developing a foot ulcer, as are patients with diabetes-related kidney, eye, and heart disease. Being overweight and using alcohol and tobacco also play a role in the development of foot ulcers.How do they form?Ulcers form due to a combination of factors, such as lack of feeling in the foot, poor circulation, footdeformities, irritation (such as friction or pressure), and trauma, as well as duration of diabetes. Patients who have diabetes for many years can develop neuropathy, a reduced or complete lack ofability to feel painin the feet due to nerve damage caused by elevated blood glucose levels over time. The nerve damage often can occur without pain and one may not even be aware of the problem. Your podiatric physician can test feet for neuropathy with a simple and painless tool called a monofilament. Vascular disease can complicate a foot ulcer, reducing the bodys ability to heal and increasing the risk for an infection. Elevations in blood glucose can reduce the bodys ability to fight off a potential infection and also retard healing. What is the value of treatment?Once an ulcer is noticed, seek podiatric medical care immediately. Foot ulcers in patients with diabetes should be treated for several reasons such as, reducing the risk of infection and amputation, improving function and quality of life, and reducing health care costs. The primary goal in the treatment of foot ulcers is to obtain healing assoon as possible. The faster the healing, the less chance for an infection. There are several key factors in the appropriate treatment of a diabetic foot ulcer: Prevention of infection. Taking the pressure off the area, called off-loading. Removing dead skin and tissue, called debridement. Applying medication or dressings to the ulcer. Managing blood glucose and other health problems. Not all ulcers are infected; however if your podiatric physician diagnoses an infection, a treatment program of antibiotics, wound care, and possibly hospitalization will be necessary. There are several important factors to keep an ulcer from becoming infected: Keep blood glucose levels under tight control. Keep the ulcer clean and bandaged. Cleanse the wound daily, using a wound dressing or bandage. Do not walk barefoot. For optimum healing, ulcers, especially those on the bottom of the foot, must be off-loaded.Patients may be asked to wear special footgear, or a brace, specialized castings, or use a wheelchair or crutches. These devices will reduce the pressure and irritation to the ulcer area and help to speed the healing process. The science of wound care has advanced significantly over the past 10 years. The old thought of let the air get at it is now known to be harmful to healing. We know that wounds and ulcers heal faster, with a lower risk of infection, if they are kept covered and moist.The use of full strength betadine, peroxide, whirlpools and soaking are not recommended, as this could lead to further complications. Appropriate wound management includes the use of dressings and topicallyapplied medications. These range from normal saline to advanced products, such as growth factors, ulcer dressings, and skin substitutes that have been shown to be highly effective in healing foot ulcers. For a wound to heal there must be adequate circulation to the ulcerated area. Your podiatrist can determine circulation levels with noninvasive tests.Surgical optionsAmajority of non-infected foot ulcers are treated without surgery; however, when this fails, surgical management may be appropriate. Examples of surgical care to remove pressure on the affected area include shaving or excision of bone(s) and the correction of various deformities, such as hammertoes, bunions, or bony bumps.Healing factorsHealing time depends on a variety of factors, such as wound size and location, pressure on the wound from walking or standing, swelling, circulation, blood glucose levels, wound care, and what is being applied to the wound. Healing may occur within weeks or require several months. PreventionThe best way to treat a diabetic foot ulcer is to prevent its development in the first place. Recommended guidelines include seeing a podiatrist on a regular basis. He or she can determine if you are at high risk for developing a foot ulcer and implement strategies for prevention. You are at high risk if you: have neuropathy, have poor circulation, have a foot deformity (i.e. bunion, hammer toe), wear inappropriate shoes, have uncontrolled blood sugar. Reducing additional risk factors, such as smoking, drinking alcohol,high cholesterol and elevated blood glucose are important in the prevention and treatment of a diabetic foot ulcer. Wearing the appropriate shoes and socks will go a long way in reducing risks.Your podiatric physician canprovide guidance in selecting the proper shoes. Learning how to check your feet is crucial in noticing a potential problem as early as possible. Inspect your feet every dayespecially between the toes and the solefor cuts, bruises, cracks, blisters, redness, ulcers, and any sign of abnormality. Each time you visit a health care provider, remove your shoes and socks so your feet can be examined.Any problems that are discovered should be reported to your podiatrist as soon as possible, no matter how simple it may seem to you. The old saying, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure was never as true as it is when preventing a diabetic foot ulcer.

DearPharmacist: What can be done to relieve the discomfort of tinnitus? The crackling, buzzing, and popping in my friends ear drives her to distraction. Shes tried several commercially available products from the health food store, all without relief so far. What do you suggest? L.J., Orlando Answer: Buzzing, clanging, whooshing, musical tones, humming, ringing, even jack hammering... tinnitus can drive you absolutely bonkers. I cant stand it even when my neighbor fires up his leaf blower, and thats over in 20 minutes. You may recognize these celebrities who have confessed to bouts of tinnitus: Eric Clapton, David Letterman and Steve Martin. The internal racket can be caused from exposure to sudden or chronic loud noises, free radical damage, age-related hearing loss, medication side effects, ear wax and a number of diseases. Thats j ust for starters. All I can do here is give you some more perspective about options. If your tinnitus doesnt yield to simple remedies, see your doctor for an evaluation. Look in your medicine cabinet. Theres a surprisingly long list of prescription and OTC drugs that have been tied to tinnitus: Non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), loop diuretics (like furosemide), and many antibiotics, antidepressant drugs, and salicylates (like aspirin). Auditory-related side effects might develop all of a sudden, even if youve been taking the drug a long time. Discuss this possibility with your doctor and pharmacist. In cases of reversible tinnitus, sometimes switching medications brings relief. Stress ramps up the noise! Consider biofeedback. Studies suggest that biofeedback training could help you find your internal control knoband turn down the volume. Deficiencies of specific nutrients can sometimes affect hearing health: Zinc, Coenzyme Q10, vitamins D and B12. Also, magnesium, a mineral in spinach and leafy greens has been shown repeatedly to support auditory mechanisms, improve hearing loss and ease tinnitus. As we speak, the Mayo Clinic is conducting a clinical trial to verify this. And an Israeli study long ago found that military personnel with tinnitus were often short on B12. Asian folks seem to have good grip on this condition. Chinese medicine doctors use acupuncture and a variety of herbals to deal with tinnitus. These treatments vary considerably, but could be very effective. I keep up with Korean news because my 24-Hour Pharmacist book is published in this language. Arecent study concluded that two compounds: Bojungikgitang and banhabaekchulchonmatang significantly improve tinnitus. American health food stores are going to screech and whine if you ask them to order that stuff, so dont even bother. Afew studies support the herbal gingko biloba, which may help by improving blood flow and scavenging free radical toxins. Other herbs worth looking into include black cohosh root and vinpocetine which improve blood flow and oxygen to the brain; goldenseal could help too, and also mullein herb which addresses inflammation.

The concert is admission free, and there will be no collection taken during intermission. The Lake Placid Messiah Society intends its offering to be a special gift to the greater Lake Placid community for the Christmas season. The performance of Messiah revives a decadesold tradition in Lake Placid dating from 1957 when the work was first performed by the Messiah Society directed by its founder, Paul Buckley. The Society continued to perform the work alternate years through the 1970s into the 1980s, after which the Highlands Delta Chorale continued the tradition. This years performance will find the Messiah Society Chorus, more than 50 voices strong, singing 11 of the works choruses including the famous Hallelujah Chorus. The chorus will be augmented by a quartet of soloists performing most of the well-known solos in the work, including I Know That My Redeemer Liveth and O Thou, That Tellest Good Tidings ToZion. The chorus, directed by local musician David H. Rinald, is made up of singers from around the greater Lake Placid area. The four soloists include soprano Katherine Smith, a masters degree candidate in music at Florida International University in Miami; alto Kimberly Milton, a voice student at Florida Southern College; tenor Adam Davidson, who is director of music at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Lakeland; and the bass soloist will be Sebring musician Daniel Burke. Richard Wedig, organist at Spring Lake Presbyterian Church, will accompany. For those not familiar with Handels Messiah, it is a major work for chorus and soloists that chronicles the life of Jesus Christ from Old Testament prophecy, His birth, career, crucifixion, resurrection and ascension into heaven. It was composed by Handel in 1742, reportedly during a time period of about three weeks.

C M Y K DearAbby: Before we went on vacation, we trusted our 15-year-old neighbor Mia to feed our cat, take in the mail and water the plants. While we were away, she invited some of her friends and their friends to our home. Some of them she knew by their nicknames and only for a short time. When Mias parents learned about the party, they forbade her to go. However, she failed to mention she had left our door unlocked for strangers to enter. It was obvious when we returned that people had been there because things were out of place and garbage was left behind. Were missing about $100 worth of beer and liquor, $50 in change and $150 in old coins. Mia claims she doesnt know who was there, and her friends arent being honest. Id like to get the police involved. Mia, her parents and my husband think Im unfair for wanting to involve the police. I believe a crime has been committed and dont understand why Im being treated like the bad guy when Im the victim. The police have told me Mia would not get into trouble as long as she cooperates. Am I overreacting? Violated Neighbor in Pennsylvania DearViolated: I dont think so. The party animals who invaded your home are guilty of trespassing and theft. You should be compensated for anything that was taken and those responsible held accountable. Now that the kids have seen where everything of value in your house is located, you could be further victimized. You did the right thing in informing the police. DearAbby: I am recently widowed. Men I work with and the husbands of some of my friends have been hitting on me. Theyll ask me out for a meal, give me big hugs and a couple of them have even kissed me on the mouth. I dont lead them on, and besides, Im a chubby greatgrandmother. What drives men to do this? Do they think theyre consoling me? When these things happen, I act as if they never did and go on as usual because to do otherwise would be hurtful to their wives, who are my friends. These men dont frighten me, but I dont understand their motivation. Do you? Granny In Her 70s Dear Granny: There isnt a blanket explanation for the behavior you have described. Some of your friendshusbands may be trying to console you; others may have lecherous intentions. As to your male co-workers, big hugs and kisses are a no-no in the workplace and you should tell them so. If these incidents happen repeatedly with the same people, you WILLhave to speak up and say theyre making you uncomfortable. And as to your friendshusbands, try this: Stiff-arm them when you greet them with a sweet smile, then turn your cheek when you see them coming at you. DearAbby: My husband and I are not religious. We believe that people are entitled to their own beliefs. My problem lies with my brother-in-law and his wife. They are two of the most judgmental, sanctimonious people I have ever known. They hate (their word) Mormons, Catholics, etc. How would you suggest I respond to their criticism of our lack of Christianity and their offers to pray for us? Biting My Tongue in Great Falls, Mont. DearBiting: If your relatives are an example of people who practice Christianity, heaven help the rest of us. If you must interact with them, practice selective deafness, and when they spout hatred, excuse yourselves. DearVeterans: I salute you for your service to this country. My thanks to each of you, as well as to the brave and dedicated men and women who are still on active duty. You are the personification of patriotism and selfsacrifice for your dedication to this country.

Edgar, a 1930 movie theater audience makes its preference clear. Whereas J. Edgar Hoovers pre-movie promotion reel about G-men and the FBI draws impatient boos, a trailer for the upcoming James Cagney flick The Public Enemy inspires hoots and applause. Though Hoover was exceptionally popular with the American public throughout his nearly four decade reign as FBI director, his opponents the gangsters, the radicals, the Kennedys have always been the chosen subjects of movies. J. Edgar, too, may not draw cheers, but it remains a riveting, noble attempt by Eastwood, now 81, to wrestle with big American questions, many of which have obvious relevance to todays politics. Its another largely fascinating, if disappointingly flawed chapter in Eastwoods fantastic late period. J. Edgar is a biopic framed around Hoover (a thoroughly committed, engaging but ultimately still removed Leonardo DiCaprio) dictating his life story to various typists. This is Hoovers story, mainly told through his perspective and therefore a somewhat claustrophobic view of history. The film, from an ambitious script by Dustin Lance Black (who wrote the Harvey Milk biopic, Milk), opens with a lot of switches in time as the narrative rushes to pack in the rise of Hoover as a Justice Department upstart and eager riser at the nascent Bureau of Investigation. Its a grimly propulsive first hour, pushed forward by the relentless, paranoid patter of the fast-talking Hoover (nicknamed Speed). Hoover is fully formed from the start: Ameticulous, obsessive defender of America (or what he conceives as America). He tries to make typist Helen Gandy (the wonderful Naomi Watts, here underused, looking too bright for a somber tale) his wife, but when she declines, he makes her his lifelong, trusted secretary instead. Edgar, can you keep a secret? Gandy, explaining her career goals, asks and somewhere, five decades of American politicians chortle. Eastwood makes an effort to show the post-World War I political climate by which Hoover was formed the bombings and assassination attempts that would ignite his long war against the Bolsheviks. The point, perhaps, is that the threat was not just paranoia but was still far from the end of times warnings that echoed, not unlike they have in contemporary times. Hoover will continue this fight throughout, eventually mistaking other movements (such as the civil rights movement Hoover, a racist, would call Martin Luther King Jr. the most notorious liar in the country) for extensions of communism. Whereas many biopics chart a persons arc across history, J. Edgar follows historys arc across Hoovers bullheaded steadiness. Eastwood explores Hoovers increasing megalomania, his illegal surveillance, his secret files. By the time Nixon is elected president, Hoover ironically recognizes him as a menace who will do anything to keep power. But Eastwood also reminds us of Hoovers accomplishments. Hoover built a centralized collection of fingerprints in Washington, and was an early advocate of forensics. He brought professionalism to FBI agents, but also presided over them like a dictator, insisting they shave any facial hair and wear suits to his liking (Hoover, almost dandyish, kept to his Brooks Brothers). He was an early publicity innovator, creating a mythologized G-Man not to mention an exaggerated Hoover. Still, the most affecting parts of J. Edgar are Hoovers two most important personal relationships: That with his mother (Judi Dench) and with his No. 2 and close friend Clyde Tolson (Armie Hammer, who after being digitally doubled for The Social Network has been restored to a singular being). Hoover was an emphatic mamas boy, and Dench plays her as a kind of Lady Macbeth, fostering her sons repression. When a grown Hoover gets worked up and begins stuttering, were cast back into the The Kings Speech: She tells him, like she did when he was a child, to talk to himself in the mirror and Be my little Speedy. The exact nature of Hoovers relationship with Tolson isnt known. They ate together nearly every day and took vacations together, but the gay and cross-dressing rumors about Hoover arent established. In J. Edgar, the relationship is entirely convincing. Hoover and Tolson (Hammer plays him as totally subservient to Hoover) are inseparable partners, but their sexual desires while not spelled out appear to be unsatisfied. Blacks interest in Hoovers story is that of a closeted gay man, as opposed to the outed Milk. DiCaprio and Hammer have an excellent chemistry, full of slight, homoerotic gestures. It can and surely will be argued how accurate it is to portray Hoover this way. The politics of the film will also be debated, given that Eastwood, a moderate libertarian Republican, is sympathetic to Hoover (felt most in his loving, mediocre piano score). But just as the director so caringly switched sides of a World War II battlefield for Letters from Iwo Jima after Flags of Our Fathers, Eastwoods J. Edgar shows just as much empathy for the power broker as Changeling did for the aggrieved. In J. Edgar, Eastwood and cinematographer Tom Stern fill the interiors with deep shadows and desaturated colors. That adds to the weighty feel of a biopic, which remains when conventional a problematic form for movies: not enough time to fit a life, and too much material to find a narrative. J. Edgar struggles to put forth a full picture of Hoover, a failure Blacks screenplay attempts to shroud in the contrived flashbacks. DiCaprio has no hesitation about the biopic, and he does a great deal to make J. Edgar a compelling one. Thanks to Deborah Hoppers excellent costumes, he plays the character across decades (as Hammer and Watts do as well). Hes most striking, almost Orson Welles-ish, as the elderly Hoover. And, really, its the experience of aging a subject of many of Eastwoods recent films that comes across best with J. Edgar. The resonating images of Hoover are of a man increasingly and tragically out of step with time. Thankfully, its been quite the opposite for Eastwood.

The victorious Allied nations soon begin drawing up a peace treaty with the defeated Central Powers. The agreement, known as the Treaty of Versailles, is signed in June 1919.1919President Woodrow Wilson proclaims Armistice Day for Nov. 11, to commemorate the end of World War I. The plan for Armistice Day includes parades and a suspension of business for a two-minute period beginning exactly at 11 a.m. Wilsons proclamation, however, does not make the day a formal federal holiday.1920France and Britain hold ceremonies honoring their unknown dead from the Great War on the second anniversary of the armistice. 1921The U.S. Congress approves the establishment of a Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery. The formal interment ceremony takes place on Nov. 11. In addition, Nov. 11 is declared a federal holiday for the year.1926ACongressional resolution formally recognizes Armistice Day as a day to pay tribute to the nations veterans. But the resolution falls short of declaring the day a federal holiday. President Calvin Coolidge calls for a show of patriotism on Armistice Day.1938Congress formally declares Armistice Day an annual federal holiday.1941-1945Millions of veterans who serve in the U.S. armed forces during World War II become honorees on Armistice Day, joining the surviving veterans of World War I.1947 The first formal observance of National Veterans Day, rather than Armistice Day, takes place in Birmingham, Ala., on Nov. 11.1954 President Dwight D. Eisenhower signs legislation that changes the name of Armistice Day to Veterans Day. The Veterans Day holiday now honors several thousand more members of the U.S. armed services who fought in the Korean War (195053).1968 Congress passes the Monday Holiday Law, establishing the fourth Monday in October as the new Veterans Day. The new observance date goes in to effect in 1971. 1971-1975The first new Veterans Day occurs on Oct. 25. Many states adhere to the date change initially, with Mississippi and South Dakota being the exceptions. In 1972, Louisiana and Wisconsin revert back to the original Nov. 11 date. Three years later, another 16 states (California, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Utah, West Virginia and Wyoming) change the Veterans Day commemoration back to Nov. 11. 1975 Congress passes legislation returning Veterans Day to Nov. 11, with widespread support from most of the states. President Gerald R. Ford signs the law, which is scheduled to take effect in 1978.1978 The official Veterans Day observance returns to Nov. 11.

Veterans Day in the United States has its roots in World War I, when fighting between the warring Allied nations and Central Powers ended on the 11th hour, of the 11th day, of the 11th month of 1918. Since then, Veterans Day has developed into a patriotic occasion for America to celebrate and honor its living veterans. But reaching a consensus on the date of the holiday, and its name, didnt come easily. Congress and several U.S. presidents have taken an active role in shaping the holiday that we know today.
