C M Y K By SAMANTHAGHOLAR s gholar@newssun.comS EBRING The Sebring City Council approved the Community Redevelopment Agencys (CRA use remaining grant fundst o restore Wall Street in downtown Sebring. CRAPresident Pete Pollard addressed council members and Mayor George Hensley Tuesday evening about the importance of focusing on Wall Street for this project. all Street has always been the bridesmaid and never the bride, Pollard said. Wall Street is one of the least used streets around the downtown Circle, according to Pollard. People who visit Circle Park and attend events rarely use Wall Streetf or parking and the street has become increasingly neglected. The $147,862 in unobligated grant funds is connected with a contractt hrough the Department of Economic Opportunity. The grant funds will expire on Jan. 3 of the upcoming year, however the DEO agreed to give the City of Sebring a sixmonth extension on the contract. The CRAworked closely with Excavation Point for estimates for the restoration project. Evacuation Point estimated the Wall Street restoration project to cost $225,000 not including the additional lighting, utility modifications and relocation costs. T he CRAproposes to remove the brick and asphalt that is currently on Wall Street and replace it with new brick. The concrete borders that are already in place on the street will also be repaired or replaced where it is necessary. The new parking lot located at South Ridgewood and Wall Street will also receive modifications. e believe that Wall Street needs to be addressed as a high priority. Right now its really an eyesore.

The report was actually a review of the entire fiscal year, and reflected a rosy picture of the citys finances, city manager Julian Deleon said. I t did come with one qualifier: the figures were unaud ited balances. Balances may be subject to change after the audit, the report states. Afinal presentation will be presented to Council by the auditorsw ith final balances once audit is complete. There are still some bills outstanding, Deleon told the council, but he expects the numbers to remain close. Most departments kept expenditures under the allotted budget. The general fund as a whole was more than $115,000 under budget. The general fund includes the AP stays under budget Deleon See CITY, page 3A See WALL, page 3A By DAVID CRARY APNational WriterVERONA, N.J. Retirement communities may have their perks, but Beryl OConnor says it would be tough to match the birthday surprise she got in her own backyard when she turned 80 this year. She was tending her garden when two little girls from next door my buddies, she calls them brought her a strawberry shortcake. It underscored why she wants to stay put in the house that she and her husband, who died 18 years ago, purchased in the late 1970s. I couldnt just be around old people thats not my lifestyle, she said. Id go out of my mind. Physically spry and socially active, OConnor in many respects is the embodiment of aging in place, growing old in ones own longtime home and remaining engaged in the community rather than moving to a retirement facility. According to surveys, aging in place is the overwhelming preference of Americans over 50. But doing it successfully requires both good fortune and support services things that OConnors pleasant hometown of Verona has become increasingly capable of providing. About 10 miles northwest of Newark, Verona has roughly 13,300 residents nestled into less than 3 square miles. Theres a transportation network that takes older people on shopping trips and to medical appointments, Aging in place: a little help can go a long way There are some people who just can do it, especially if they have family support. And then you run into people who think they can do it, yet really cant. You need to start educating people before a crisis hits.CONNIEPIFHER health coordinator See AGING, page 8A


C M Y K By SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Council members discussed details to a proposed sign code amendment Tuesday evening at the monthly meeting in Sebring. Planning and zoning D irector Jim Polatty presented numerous issues regarding t he current sign ordinance to the council in hopes of gett ing a go ahead to create and tweak the current ordinance. P olatty is requesting council to refer to city attorney Bob Swaine regarding three sets of amendments. One set of amendments has to do with the Fair Associations request to replace their sign, Polatty said Tuesday evening. According to Polatty, upon looking at the ordinance there is no mention of the sign code in the public district. T enille Drury, marketing and sales manager at the H ighlands County Fair Association, said the fairgrounds and convention center is in need of a new sign. There is nothing that really says that we are here and theres nothing that advertises what is going on here, D rury said. We want to be able to advertise not only for t he fair but for events at the convention center. We are g etting a pretty decent name here. Drury and the Fair A ssociation are looking to place a 15-foot-tall sign not far from the current location of the existing sign. e just want it a few feet t o the left where it currently is, that way it is more in front o f the convention center and is able to be seen better, said Drury. T he proposed sign will also include an 3-by-9.5-foot L ED section. The full-color scrolling marquee will display current and upcoming events at the fair grounds and convention center. Druryh opes to have the sign up in time for the fair in early February. The second group of amendments were drafted byS waine and include directional signage (off-premises s igns telling people which way to turn or where enter/exit a facility). T he last amendment to be addressed is the signage in front yards and residential n eighborhood lots. Home businesses or occupations are directed to place signs on the structure of the business according to Polatty, however Planning and Zoning has allowed signs to be placed in f ront yards. T he sign ordinance was c hallenged a few months ago b y Good Shepherd Hospices Somers Hospice House, which is located within a residential district on HammockR oad. The hospice requested revisions of the sign ordinance so that they may placea larger sign near the entrance of the facility.C ouncil members denied the requests at that time. I understand that things that are being brought to us now are things that have been needed to be cleaned upa nd fixed for a while, probably back when the hospice issue came up the first time. However, now this is being brought up because the Highlands County Fair board w ants to put up a sign that is not technically allowed, but Ill say the same thing I said then, I dont like the idea ofg oing in and changing stuff Page 2ANews-SunFriday, November 18, 2011www.newssun.com pub block; 5.542"; 4.5"; Black; publishers block; 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 8 8 0 0 3 3 4 4 Nov. 16 102434373945x:4Next jackpot $32 millionNov. 12 31115223738x:2 Nov. 9 91629444851x:4 Nov. 16 822273233 Nov. 15 1282123 Nov. 14 1216202124 Nov. 13 114212534 Nov. 16 (n 0618 Nov. 16 (d 1521 Nov. 15 (n 6902 Nov. 15 (d 3868 Nov. 16(n 214 Nov. 16 (d 274 Nov. 15 (n 561 Nov. 15(d 372 Nov. 15 34123513 Nov. 11 41519424 Nov. 8 1235373821 Nov. 4 310162613 Nov. 16 1322253951 PB: 28 PP: 2Next jackpot $60 millionNov. 12 435365156 PB: 8 PP: 5 Nov. 9 535575859 PB: 12 PP: 3 Note: Cash 3 and Play 4 drawings are twice per day: (d daytime drawing, (n nighttime drawing.

According to the DEP website, the award is, one way (the agency can recognize water and w astewater facilities that demonstrate excellence. Efforts to reach the DEPwere unsuccessful. The bigger story, said c ity manager and public works director Julian D eleon, is that the city is really trying to do the right thing. F or example, after years of running over b udget, the water and waste water departments are operating in the black.E xpenditures during the fiscal year 2010-2011, for example, were more than $ 156,000 under budget. Deleon credits the city c ouncil for funding several key capital projects that have modernized the citys utilities and improved efficienciesw hile providing greater quality. AP wins another water award Associated PressW ESTPALM BEACH Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain said on a campaign stop in Florida onW ednesday that Republicans took back control of the House in 2008 when that really happened in 2010. When the American people begin to ignite that American spirit they make things happen, just like they made things happen in 2008 when the Republicans took back control of the House, he said at a rally at the Palm Beach County Convention Center. The misstep came two days after a muchreplayed fumbling to a question on Libya that has had some questioning his fitness to deal with international affairs. I get criticized, Well he doesnt have extensive foreign policy experience,he said. And the guy there now does? he said, referring to Obama. Cain was reaching out to South Floridas influential Cuban-American and Jewish communities during the stops. 2008 actually was a banner year for Democrats, putting Barack Obama in the White House as his party gained seats in both House and Senate. Cain said he believed an attack on Israel by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad would be considered an attack on the U.S., echoing comments earlier in the day seeking the support of Floridas sizable Jewish community.

Darley told the APPD that she ran to the back door and called out to the subjects, who fled the store westbound towards the Avon Park Community Center. Darley was able to identify Campbell immediately, and supplied his description to the police. Apatron in the store, Omar Mendoza-Macias, stated that he witnessed Nelson take the container and pass it to Campbell before they left the store. Mendoza-Macias was also able to positively identify Campbell, whom he knew as Walt. The duo fled the Stop and Shop and traveled to Goatmans house, who was identified as Terry L. Jones, at 103 N. Glenwood Ave., where Nelson allegedly disposed of the container and the couple split the cash. Coogan said that Campbell was arrested on another charge on Nov. 4 and identified Nelson as his accomplice. Both Campbell and Nelson were charged with second degree petty theft, and for both it is their third offense, according to the Highlands County Sheriffs Office. Campbell and Nelson are still being held in the HCSO Jail on $5,000 bond. The money was not recovered. Continued from page 1A B y ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK The Avon Park Chamber of Commerce, and Santa,a nnounced this week that they are ready to start the holiday season. e have it all lined out, said David Greenslade, executive director for the chamber. We have been taking applications since September for the parade, and we w ill have between 90 and 100 registered units and floats again this yearG reenslade said. The parade starts sharply at 7 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 28, according to Greenslade, and the weather is usually perfect this time of the year for thee vent. Greenslade advised that the parade is usually a long one, so bring something to sit on to watch the festivities. Bring your lawn chairs. It is a great t ime. We have one of the largest parades in the county, and we always kick off the holiday season with the first one, G reenslade said. The parade starts on north Anoka and then runs east on Main Street. Eastbound traffic is shut down during the parade, but the westbound lanes areo pen. If you havent had a chance to see it, I would encourage folks to come out. This is a great chance to relax, eat some, enjoy the sights and sounds, and justv isit, Greenslade said. The following Monday night, which is Dec. 5, the Chamber will feature local s chools for a Christmas on Main Street event. Music presented by Avon, Memorial a nd Park Elementary Schools as well as the Avon Park Middle and High School chorus groups and the Avon Park High Band will be provided to entertain and put people in the mood for the season. Christmas on Main Street is a good t ime to hear some local talent. The kids work hard to get ready for this and the music definitely puts you in the spirit, Greenslade added. The chamber will be running a conc ession stand that evening, with the proceeds going towards the scholarship fund, Greenslade said. Come out and enjoy the music and support a great cause, Greenslade said. Those seeking more information about either event can contact the chamber at 453-3350. Parade and performance to kick off holiday season in Avon Park e have one of the largest parades in the c ounty and we always kick off the holiday season with the first one.DAVIDGREENSLADE A Pchamber director budgets for the city council, the city manager, and the finance, legal, public safety, streets, and recre-a tion departments. The general economy continues to affect city finances, with lowered revenues due to lowerp roperty appraisals, fewer dollars from other government sources and a decrease in the purchase of licenses and permits. Tax revenues, for examp le, were down by just over $275,000. The next fiscal year may bring concerns, Deleon said in a telephonei nterview Thursday morning, but with continuing a nnexations, and looking closely at all (personnel) vacancies before filling them, I think we are moving in the right direction. O ne area of particular challenge are the parks a nd recreation budgets, which were over budget by more than $37,000 inp ersonal services and approximately $12,000 in o perating costs. While two employees were laid off in an attemptt o close the gap, Director of Recreation Maria Sutherland told the NewsS un Thursday morning, one of the individuals, per u nion rules, bumped a junior colleague in the streets department and only a small sum was saved. O ne of the biggest drains on the recreational budget, Sutherland added, is maintaining city-owned parks some used exclusively by a single group. Head Field is the beste xample of that circumstance. S utherland said the city is now setting the stage for some non-profits to take over (some parks with total control. Thati s, a specific non-profit, or consortium, would take over management of a particular park. Movement in that direc-t ion will be slow, however, because the city wants to be sure the arrangement will remain fiscally healthy into the future and that the park will be maintained properly especially a site as historical as Head Field. The city hopes to use part of the funds from the return on investment plan and pay to play to help meet the recreation and park budgets in the future. Both the police personnel and legal budgets also exceeded estimated expenditures the police department because of Michael Rowans promotion to police chief in March, said Lily Ann Bermudez, who presented the report to the city council, and the extra costs of legal actions relating to Rowans termination and lawsuit. Deleon said the city has approximately $50,000 in its contingency fund, enough money to provide a 212month cushion in emergencies. Continued from page 1A Youve got a lot of trip hazards, safety hazards and its very dark at night. Every public parking lot that we have that provides access to Circle Park, people would have to walk through Wall Street. We believe its very high priority, Pollard said. CRAproposed on Monday night to move $125,000 from the Streetscape IX budget into the Wall Street restoration project to cover the additional costs. Continued from page 1A because one group comes in and asks us Hey. Canw e change the ordinance for this? said council member Andrew Fells. Polatty spoke to Becky McIntyre of GoodS hepherd before Tuesdays meeting and McIntyre showed interest in still wanting a bigger sign, but stated they arec urrently focused on providing services to the community. Polatty planst o present the hospice with information regarding the changes to theo rdinance in the near future. F ells stated later that he believes that a large part of the sign code does needt o be changed. Something always has t o initiate amendments. Youve got to start somewhere, Polatty said. Polatty complimented Sebrings sign code forb eing synched and brief. I think the commercial sign code is in pretty good shape. What we have isg ood. But we are proposing to do what you said, C ouncilmen Fells, in smaller bites, Polatty said. C ouncilman John Clark expressed concern with the Fair Associations proposed sign becoming a nuisance to residents int he area. Electric or lighted signs tend to offend residents a lot more than just an old sign stuck in thed irt. This doesnt address illuminated or back-light o r LED signs, said Clark. Thats what worries mew ith this (ordinances not specific. Polatty will propose a model ordinance that will address the residentiala rea and lit signs. Councilman John Griffin made a motion to table the proposed changes to the sign ordi-n ance until the next meeting. Council members approved unanimously and instructed the Planning & Zoning board, along with the city attorney, to clean up the proposed changes and the ordinance before presenting it again at the next meeting.

Lawyers called it a significant step toward resolving problems with some 10,000 buildings blamed on the drywall. Plaintiffslawyer Bruce Steckler said the settlement with the Knauf Group manufacturer involves reimbursements to builders for homes that have been fixed or are being repaired now, and others that are in line to be remediated. He expects U.S. District Judge Eldon Fallon to approve the settlement. Fallon presides over other cases involving more than 10,000 properties owned by people who blame damage to their homes, including corroding plumbing and electrical connections, on defective Chinese-made drywall. Settlement reached in Chinese drywall case At an afternoon appearance in the Fort Lauderdale suburb of Coral Springs, Cain rallied supporters at a chicken wing restaurant and again stressed support for Israel. He also raised questions about whether the U.S. can truly count on longtime ally Pakistan, noting that al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden was able to hide out there until he was killed by U.S. commandos earlier this year. s clarify who our enemies are and stop giving money to our enemies, Cain said.

C M Y K I s easy to pick through and find flaws in the recently f iled casino bill that its sponsors, state Rep. Erik Fresen, R-Miami, and state Sen. Ellyn Bogdanoff, R-Fort Lauderdale, insist is neces-s ary to curtail seedier and widespread gambling outlets. T he real culprit, though, is a gambling loophole the Legislature created roughlyt hree decades ago, and which could prove big enough to d rive a gravy train through. In 1980, state lawmakers decided to give those horse a nd dog track operators with the lowest amounts of money wagered on races a chance to obtain summer jai-alai permits. The statute only applied t o counties where five or more pari-mutuels held permits namely, Broward and Miami-Dade counties and those permits remained valids o long as there was no increase in the number of permit-holding pari-mutuels. Now, 31 years later, that little-known law could bem ore pivotal than many people think. AMiami casino used the s tatute to obtain a permit from the Florida Division of Pari-Mutuel Wagering. Thep ermit allows the Magic City Casino to operate a poker r oom and a slots operation anywhere in Miami-Dade County. Following suit,B roward County-based developer Ron Bergeron is s eeking a similar permit for a new jai-alai fronton on land he owns in Weston. Arecent state District Court of Appeal ruling allow-i ng state lawmakers to expand gambling instead of g oing through a local referendum has also roiled any semblance of gambling con-t rol. Agroup in Gretna has used the ruling to obtain a p ermit to run barrel races and offer slots. And theres a pending application from a s econd North Florida group that wants to set up a similar operation in Jennings. ... Currently, theres a major bill on the table that attempts to regulate gambling while o pening the door for destination casinos in Florida.

ALEC is an acronym for A merican Legislative Exchange Council which w as founded in 1973 by Paul Weyrich and other conservative activists tos hape American politics. A LEC has secretive tasks forces that are working to privatize education, breaku nions and suppress voter r ights. This powerful right-wing group believes that freem arkets are the only source of wealth. They believe that business should grab all the surplus for itself and thatw orkers are worthless and the earth should be ravaged. The Koch Brothers and their front group, Americans for Prosperity, are funneling millions of dollars into ALEC and thep olitical campaigns of Rick Perry, Herman Cain and Rick Scott. Through Americans for Prosperity,( the richest one percents prosperity), the brothers helped organize and fund Tea Party groups in the U.S. who believe, as they do, that the government must be destroyed; that voter rights be suppressed; that courts should be filled with right wing radical judges and that lobbyists for giant corporations formulate policy that takes away the power of the middle class. If ALEC has its way, the America our Founding Fathers worked so hard to create will be no more.

EDITORIALPAGEPOLICY State needs to tamp down gaming frenzy Barrel racing isnt exactly the sport of kings, and Weston isnt clamoring for a new jai-alai fronton. Both, though, stand to become thorny challenges to those seeking to curb the spread of gambling in Florida. At the moment, interest in gambling is starting to run amok. T hree years ago, t he nationala verage for a gallon of regular gradeg asoline was around $1.70. The pricec limbed to $2.60 in 2009 and $2.80 a year later. As of Nov.11, 2011, gas rose to an average of $3.45 per gallon, roughly twice as much as what we were paying in 2008. When gasoline prices hit their peak at around $4.00, Democrats were demanding Bushs head on a platter, but under Obama the higher prices are simply the new normal. Rather than take steps to curb rising fuel prices, the administration is waging its own ideological war against energy independence by drilling regulations and moratoriums that, according to Steve Forbes, is fueling an energy crisis that could bring this nation to its knees. We hear much these days about all the jobs saved or created but hear little about jobs slashed or destroyed. In many ways, the Obama administration has become a job-wrecking machine. According to Forbes in the same Politico op-ed piece, the six-month gulf drilling moratorium alone cost 8,169 jobs and $487 million in wages, not to mention the sweeping effects on the trucking and agriculture industries. In this struggling economy, the obvious solution would be to reduce regulations and tap into our own natural resources, which would strengthen our economy on many levels. But, for liberals, it is less about jobs and more about pleasing environmental constituencies. What is Obamas grand plan to get America back on the road to energy independence? One million electric cars on the road by 2015. The Volt was supposed to be the bright and shining symbol of the Obama administrations green energy revolution, but instead has become a reminder of what happens when the federal government over steps its Constitutional boundaries to meddle in private industry. Like most ideas coming from the ideological left, electric cars are great in theory but fall short in application. For one, the people who need them most cant afford them. Even with the $7500 (taxpayer-funded) federal rebate, thousands of unwanted Volts, priced from $32,000 to $57,000, remain parked on dealership lots across the country. Many more would be sitting on those lots, were it not for Obamas buddy, General Electric (GEf Immelts decision to purchase twelve thousand Volts. Immelt also joined Obamas electric car revolution with the development of the GE WattStation electric vehicle charger. The Volt, just like everything else the government produces, underperforms and is overpriced. (I cannot wait for Obamacare!) In an op-ed piece for the New York Times, automobile expert Edward Niedermeyer wrote the Volt offers the performance and interior space of a $15,000 economy car. Niedermeyer claims the Obama administration knew from the get-go that the Volt would likely be a financial flop. Nonetheless, with pockets stuffed full of taxpayer funds, the administration merrily doled out Energy Department grants and loans, and in essence, chose for us the type of cars they believe we should drive. On a positive note, the electric vehicle industry might have the unintended consequence of creating more jobs as fire stations hire more firefighters to handle the increased workload.

Pfc. Jeremy Faulkner, 23, and five fellow 101st Airborne Division heroes were killed in Afghanistansr ugged Kunar Province during a chaotic Mar. 29 firefight. Despite heavy casualties, American forces ultimately won the battle, andt his long line of proud Screaming Eagles served as living proof. e survived it, Pfc. Faulkners company commander said, emphasizing theh eroism of all his soldiers. When its all said and done, J eremys actions speak louder than (anything here. M any of these soldiers returned from Afghanistan j ust weeks after the bloody battle. Nearly eight months later, as they check up on wounded buddies and miss their fallen friends, the FortC ampbell-based paratroopers flew by helicopter to Griffin, G a., to present Pfc. Faulkners family with the soldiers posthumous BronzeS tar for Valor. I try not to think about t hat day so much, one soldier said, as Faulkners family sat just a few feet in fronto f him. I just think of the days before that. I miss Faulkner a lot ... he w as a good friend of mine, another soldier said. There w as never a dull moment with him. While laughing isnt easy, especially after seeing close friends killed and wounded,s everal Task Force No Slack troops, who spoke despite enormous grief and pressure, tried to lighten the mood. Jeremy was one of the smartest soldiers I met, a fellow paratrooper said. He w as always trying to learn and know his job. But he was always the first to get yelled at, the soldier added, prompting laughter. S till, tears began to flow when one tall, strong warrior, w ho looked like he could singlehandedly destroy a terror cell, could barely speakt hrough his grief. I really cant say too m uch or Im going to get choked up, he said. One Army specialist, who appeared older than the troops standing to his left and right,t ouched the audience with his candor. I miss him, the soldier said before a painful pause. And I loved him verym uch. Nobody loved Jeremy more t han his mother, Judy Berry. We spoke two days after the Nov. 10 ceremony. It made me real proud, Berry said. But no matter how many medals or stripes whatever your soldier gets youd much rather have h im. Jeremys mom feels a close bond to her sons brothers in arms, who approached telling his story with the same fear-l ess dedication they showed on the battlefield. I didnt realize how many lives he had saved until I gota call from Afghanistan, she said. Those boys are like my boys now While Berry had spoken with several soldiers by phone, the mom was over-w helmed by seeing them recount her sons final moments. (I have toget about myself and try to lift themu p, Berry said. I didnt really understand that a lot of them were hurting the way they were. She wants Jeremys friends t o know that her sons death was not their fault. s very emotional for all of them, she said. I know a lot of them feel like they should have been out therei nstead of him. While Nov. 11 was V eterans Day, the raw, dignified emotion inside the Georgia National GuardA rmory showed that for some, every day is Veterans D ay. Combat veterans live with emotions that few can comprehend, and concern for their well-being must be paramount. A fter the last soldier spoke, the audience paused to admire t his remarkable line of heroes, who stood together in silence before the movingc eremonys conclusion. It was then that I reached a conclus ion of my own. While survivors of the Mar. 29 firefight are still beingc hallenged, they have already won another battle since returning home. They have s ucceeded in keeping Pfc. Jeremy Faulkners spirit a live. e know where you are, a brother in arms said. And well see you again.

C M Y K Associated PressNEWYORK E verywhere, it seems, people want to weigh in about the Occupy Wall Street protests around the country, from CEOs and politicians to yourn ext-door neighbor. So far the talk has translated into little action. Two months into the movement, with police dis-m antling the encampments one by one, city by city, few politicians or policymakers have publicly taken up the protesterscause and donea nything to address corporate excesses and economic inequality. B ut some political observers say the demonstrators have changed the con-v ersation in the U.S., and that is a big first step. Theyve shifted the center of gravity of the debate so that the whole question ofw ealth and privilege is now being discussed, said W illiam Galston, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, the Washington political think tank. In a democracy, what people aret alking about matters. Georgia state Sen. Vincent F ort, a Democrat who was among those arrested when protesters were expelledf rom an Atlanta park last month, said he is not troub led by the absence of any major tangible change. The Occupy movement is a relative baby. Its just a few months old, he said. The most important thing it has done is to change the conversation in this country.Y ou cant have any policy change, you cant have any legislative change, until the debate is changed. Examples of real, measura ble Occupy-inspired change in the political sphere are h ard to come by, though a b and of millionaires did storm Capitol Hill on W ednesday to urge Congress to tax them more, claiming they are not paying their fair share. In Rhode Island, D emocratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse noted that O ccupy activists encouraged customers to fight back recently against fees imposedb y major banks a fight that ended with Bank of A merica and its competitors backing down. Whitehouse is trying to channel the anger t hat has bubbled up in the Occupy movement against big banks as he seeks support for a bill to crack down on credit card interest rates. U nion leaders say the Occupy movement has also brought a spark of optimism and energy to organized labor after a summer of set-b acks and assaults on their bargaining power. The Occupy movement has framed the fight, said Mary Kay Henry, presidento f the Service Employees International Union. Theyve totally changed the debate within a 30-day period. S he added: It has impacted expectations among people who were beaten down. In fact, labor leaders insist the Occupy movements mes-s age of economic inequality was a factor earlier this month in Ohio, where voters overwhelmingly repealed a law curtailing public employ-e esright to collective bargaining. B ut political experts are s keptical of that claim. Thats a stretch, said P aul Beck, a political science professor at the Ohio State University in Columbus. The sentiment of Ohioans on that bill very much pre-c edes any of the Occupy Wall Street activities and t heir spinoffs in various cities. As for why the protesters h ave yet to turn the conversation into major action, s ome political observers said the movement has never really clarified its policy object ives and is hampered by a lack of clear-cut leadership. Kalle Lasn, co-founder of Adbusters, the Canadian magazine that helped ignitet he Occupy Wall Street movement by issuing the initial call for the demonstration last spring, said the original magic faded some-w hat as news coverage of the encampments around the c ountry began to focus less on the participantsyouthful idealism and more on drugs,v iolence and homelessness. Somehow, we lost the high ground, we lost the narrative, he said. Tactically, the moment was right tod eclare victory, have a big global party and come back swinging next spring. Where does the movement go from here, especially nowt hat police cleared out its unofficial headquarters, Zuccotti Park in New York City? Will marches pack the s ame punch as a noisy, everpresent outdoor camp in the heart of New Yorks financiald istrict? The protesters may learn the answer to that on Thursday, when they plana cts of civil disobedience, including marches over b ridges in several cities and an occupation of the New York City subway system. This thing has gone so far and reflects such intense f eeling that I dont think theres any chance at all that we just saw it end, said Todd Gitlin, a Columbia University authority on the student left during the 1960s. W hether the Occupy movement will achieve real change, he said, may depend on whether the demonstrators and their sympathizersd ecide to bargain with the Democrats to achieve some of their agenda. Florida state Rep. Dwight Bullard, a Miami Democratw ho has met with organizers in Florida, said he and other lawmakers are listening to the protesters and taking up their cause on such issues asd ebit card fees. I would definitely say that Occupy has encouragedo r helped ignite, I guess, a more aggressive fervor in the bellies of my colleagues,B ullard said. Sometimes you dont want to jump out o f the plane without a parachute, and it is nice to know there are people not onlya round the state but around the country and around the g lobe that are tired of being beat down and taken advantage of by corporate interests. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, November 18, 2011Page 7A C OWPOKES WATERING HOLE; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black plus three; process, 11/18/11; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 4 4 0 0 9 9 4 4 JD FINANCIAL; 3.639"; 4"; Process color; process, b ussiness; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 4 4 1 1 0 0 7 7 T ouch a Truck; 5.542"; 10.5"; Process color; -; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 4 4 1 1 1 1 9 9 Howard Schnapp/Newsday/MCT O ccupy Wall Street protestor Andrew Carbone takes his place as protestors are allowed back into Zuccotti Park on Tuesday evening in New York City.

C M Y K and the town is benefiting from a $100,000 federal grant to put in place an aging-in-p lace program called Verona LIVE. Administrated by United Jewish Communities of MetroWest New Jersey, thep rogram strives to educate older people about available services to help them address problems and stay active in the community. Its partnersi nclude the health and police departments, the rescue squad, the public and public schools, and religious groups. Among the support services are a home maintenance pro-g ram with free safety checks and minor home repairs, a ccess to a social worker and job counselor, a walking club and other social activities. Ino ne program, a group of middle-school girls provided oneo n-one computer training to about 20 older adults. Social worker Connie Pifher, Veronas health coordinator, said a crucial part oft he overall initiative is educating older people to plan a head realistically and constantly reassess their prospects for successfullya ging in place. There are some people w ho just can do it, especially if they have family support, said Pifher, And then you runi nto people who think they can do it, yet really cant. You need to start educating people b efore a crisis hits. Theres no question that a ging in place has broad appeal. According to an Associated Press-LifeGoesStrong.com poll conducted in October, 52 percent of baby boomers saidt hey were unlikely to move someplace new in retirement. In a 2005 survey by AARP, 89 percent of people age 50 and older said they would prefert o remain in their home indefinitely as they age. That yearning, coupled with a widespread dread of going to a nursing home, hasl ed to a nationwide surge of programs aimed at helping people stay in their neighborhoods longer. Verona LIVE is a version of one such concept: theN aturally Occurring Retirement Community, or N ORC. That can be either a specific housing complex or a larger neighborhood in whichm any of the residents have aged in place over a long perio d of time and need a range of support services in order to continue living in their homes. Verona is an apt setting. R oughly 20 percent of its residents are over 65, compared w ith 13 percent for New Jersey as a whole. Another notable initiative i s the village concept. Members of these nonprofit e ntities can access specialized programs and services, such as transportation to stores,h ome health care, or help with household chores, as well as a network of social activities w ith other members. About 65 village organizat ions have formed in the U.S. in recent years, offering varying services and charging membership fees that generally range between $500 and $700 a year. O ne of the potential problems for people hoping to age in place is that their homes may not be senior-friendly It becomes a challenge b ecause we live in Peter Pan houses, designed for people who never grow old, said Susan Bosak, a social scientist who is overseeing a pro-g ram to boost intergenerational engagement in Tulsa, Okla. Many older people live in homes that are 40 or more years old, abounding withn arrow interior doorways, hard-to-reach kitchen cupb oards and potentially hazardous bathroom fixtures. If youre a boomer person, w ith money to remodel, think about making your house m ore user-friendly, not just more beautiful, for when you have your knee replacement or a chronic condition, said Nancy Thompson of AARP. Were talking smart, convenient. It doesnt have to look i nstitutional or utilitarian. To promote this outlook, AARPhas teamed up with theN ational Association of Home Builders to create a designat ion for certified aging in place specialists trained in designing and modifying resi-d ences for the elderly. Several thousand builders, contractors, remodelers and a rchitects have been certified. Building or remodeling h omes can include such details as touchless faucets, trim kitchen drawers instead of cupboards, grab bars and n onslip floors in the bathrooms. A rizonas Pima County, along with a few other local g overnments, has gone a step further, passing an ordinance r equiring that all new homes in the unincorporated areas around Tucson offer a basic level of accessibility. They must have at least one entrance with no steps. Minimum heights and widths are set so that light switchesc an be easily reached and doorways are passable in a w heelchair. For now, Beryl OConnors two-story, four-bedroom Cape Cod house, built in the 1940s,p oses no physical challenges for her. Her own bedroom is o n the ground floor, and she recently had a safety bar i nstalled in her bathtub, so she thinks prospects are good for s taying put over the long term.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING It was a stifling defense that set the tone as the Lady Blue Streaks opened the regular season with a 55-14 rout of visiting Hardee Tuesday night. Outsized and overmatched by the young Sebring squad, the Lady Wildcats had trouble against a swarming half=court trap that lead to steals, interceptions, turnovers and a seemingly continuous lay-up drill for the Streaks. Rolling out to a 140 lead, Hardee didnt get its first hoop until the 3:53 mark, which was quickly followed up by a steal and Shalontay Rose drive for a 16-2 lead that would move to 22-4 by the end of the period. The split for the second quarter was a bit closer, though not much, as the half ended with the Streaks up 34-8. He told them to keep hustling or else theyd be running in practice tomorrow senior Destiny Sutton, out with a fractured ankle, said. But really, he just said to keep playing hard and not downplay ourselves. That advice held as the four-point-per-quarter defensive average kept up in the third period, as Sebring built the lead to 46-12 and early in the fourth the lead extended to more than 35, instituting the running-clock rule. By then, both benches were emptied before the final minutes rolled off the clock on the seasonopening triumph. April Wallace lead the Streaks with 21 points and tallied an unconventional double-double with 10 steals. Allie Mann added 11 points, Rose had five points and seven rebounds and Jamiese Wiley dished out five assists. Sebring was at DeSoto Thursday night and play host to St. Petersburs Dixie Hollins High School Friday. See Sundays News-Sun for a recap of the action.

By BEN WALKER Associated PressNEWYORK Moments after his team lost a day-night doubleheader at Yankee Stadium in late September, Joe M addon wandered into the Tampa Bay clubhouse. The twin defeats left the Rays in a precarious position with only a week remaining in the regular season. Rather than raise his voice, Maddon delivered a simple message. ou guys are great, Maddon recalled telling them, and I know you can still do this. Eternally optimistic, Maddon won the AL Manager of the Year award Wednesday. He certainly clinched the honor in the last month, when Tampa Bay overcame a nine-game deficit and trumped Boston for the wild-card spot. K irk Gibson, meanwhile, took a more stern approach starting in spring training. H e even brought three Navy SEALs to camp. T he SEALs wrote D, W a nd I on a board. The letters stood for a sense of purpose, not a traffic offense: Deal With It. They bought into it, said Gibson, voted the NL Manager of the Year after the guiding the Arizona Diamondbacks to a worstto-first finish. Gibson was a clear choice for guiding the Diamondbacks to a runaway NLWest title. Aformer MVPas a rough-and-tumble outfielder, he was honored in his first full season as a big league manager. I certainly had a vision, Gibson said during a conference call while on vacation in northern Michigan, adding, Its certainly not all because of me. Maddon was an easy pick in winning the AL award for the second time. The Rays made the biggest September rally in baseball history for a team that claimed a playoff berth, sealing it on the final day of the regular season. I like to think of it as a validation of the Rays way of doing things, Maddon said of the award during a conference call while visiting family and friends in Hazleton, Pa. Maddon led Tampa Bay to the playoffs for thet hird time in four years. After that, his name popped up in speculation about managerial openi ngs with Boston, the Chicago Cubs and St. L ouis. The Cardinals have a lready hired Mike Matheny. I dont want to have to go anywhere else, Maddon said. The awards were announced by the Baseball WritersAssociation of America. The NLCy Young winner will be revealed Thursday, with Clayton Kershaw of the Los Angeles Dodgers the leading candidate. Gibson and the Diamondbacks went 9468, a year after he took over in midseason as Arizona went 65-97. Stressing fundamentals and details from the first day of camp, the 54-yearold Gibson pushed his team into the playoffs, where it lost to Milwaukee in the 10th inning of the deciding Game 5 in the opening round. Gibson drew 28 of the Maddon, Gibson win Managers of Year See MADDON, Page 3B By LAUREN WELBORN N ews-Sun correspondentSEBRING The Lady Streaks varsity soccer team took on Auburndale Tuesday night in a heated battle to the finish. And while Sebring started off strong, sticking with the pace of play Auburndale brought on the field, it wouldt be quite enough in the end as the Lady Bloodhounds took the 4-2 win. ASebring penalty in the box gave Auburndale its first scoring opportunity on a penalty kick. That left an Auburndale player one-on-one with Streak goal keeper Meghan Williams, a fight that would see the first point in Auburndale's favor. The Lady Streaks would not give up just yet and quickly recovered within the next ten minutes with a goal of their own. Lefty Jordan Hinkle took a corner kick for Sebring, setting up a scoring opportunity for Haylee Peters and Mariana Becker. As the scramble in the box continued, the ball finally found its way into the net, tying the score. Unfortunately, in a later effort to clear the ball from the box, Sebring found themselves offering an own-goal, which then left the score at 21. As the first half came to a close, an Auburndale forward blasted a shot that was just beyond the reach of Williams, leaving the score at 3-1 at the break. Ever persistent, the Lady Lady Streaks getting close See STREAKS, Page 3B By ED BALDRIDGE ed.baldridge@newssun.comAVON PARK Avon Park started their season off strong at home Tuesday night with a 62-23 win overL akeland Victory Christian H igh School. I saw a little bit better defense than last night. I didt know what to expect, we havent played them before, but we played well, said Avon Park head coach Paulette Daley. T he Devils jumped out ahead early, taking the fight to Victory Christian by netting 22 points in the first and 16 points in the second periods while keeping the Lakeland team to just 12 point for the total first half. e made our lay-ups. I am overall pleased with the girls tonight. Daley added. e really didnt get ano pportunity to set up our offense, and played a lot of transitional basketball, but we did well on our lay-ups. D aley used her defense to push the lead in the third and the Red Devils allowed just two points from Victory Christian shooters from the outside. Taller and faster,Avon P ark let off the gas a bit in t he final period, scoring just six points while allowing Lakelands guard Michelle King to net 10 points on her own. King topped out at 15 points for the entire game, but was not u sed effectively by Victory Christian until the end of the game when teammates started feeding he the ball at the top of the key. Lady Devil Jontavia Perry, a junior forward, racked up 26 points by the end of the runaway game, and was able to snag six steals.

Sebring hammers Hardee By FRED GOODALL Associated PressTAMPA The struggling Tampa Bay Buccaneers relish the challenge of having to beat the NFLs hottest team to get their season back on track.

The team travels to Green Bay this weekend to face the unbeaten Packers (9-0 not only is capable of playing the Super Bowl champions tough but winning. e know theyre not going to take it easy, but you kind of hope they underestimate you a little bit and maybe we can sneak up on them, offensive tackle Donald Penn said Wednesday. Tampa Bay is coming off an embarrassing 37-9 loss that prompted coach Raheem Morris to question the effort of some players. The defense yielded 420 yards to the Texans to tumble to 31st in the NFLrankings, and the Bucssputtering offense failed to score a touchdown until the fourth quarter for the second week in a row.

Her lofted shot sailed just out of the goal keepers reach and into the back of the net, bringing Auburndale's lead down to just one goal at 3-2. The Sebring defense batt led the Lady Houndssuperb passing skills, and because of this ongoing fight, saw another own-goal in an attempt to clear the ball once again. Neither Sebring nor Auburndale capitalized on any scoring opportunity after that, and as the final two minutes ticked away, the final score saw 4-2 in Auburndale's favor. At the end of the day, two own goals and a penalty kick says it all, said head coach Paul Brown. We played well, but they were the better team and we were a bit tired. There is no argument, they were a very good team and passed well.

Lady Streaks edging up against tough competition Green Bay, meanwhile, has won 15 straight dating to last season, the longest winning streak in franchise history. s a long season. We need to get a run going, fix the little things that we canc ontrol effort, dumb penalties, things like that, Penn said. We do that and I think well be back to where we need to be. ... One thing we do is fight back. Its a perfect test. The Bucs entered the season with heightened expectations after going 10-6 andn arrowly missing the playoffs a year ago. Theyve lost four of five following a 3-1 start, and Morris is fielding questions about whether the leagues youngest team has regressed or simply is going through a tough stretch. Third-year quarterback Josh Freeman is at the center of the struggles. After throwing for 25 touchdowns and just six interceptions in 2010, he has nine TD passes vs. 13 interceptions through nine games this season. Freeman reiterated W ednesday that he doesnt feel hes taken a step back and that hes actually a lot better player today than hew as a year ago, even if his statistics dont support the c ontention he initially made after being sacked four times a nd throwing three interceptions during last Sundays l oss to the Texans. Hes played two games and part of a third with a sprained thumb on his throwing hand, however Freeman insisted the injury didnt hinder him that much during losses to Chicago, New Orleans and Houston. Being out there, you have to play well enough to win. ... Its near 100 percent right now, so its not something Im concerned about, Freeman said. Morris also played down the severity of the injury, as well as how much it has affected Freemans play. In my eyes, I dont see it as a factor. My young quar-t erback has to go out there and deliver the football with precision and timing, the coach said. This young manp layed with a broken finger for the first four games of last s eason. Wewont make excuses for a sprained thumb. A nd we wont blame our losing streak on it. D espite the poor stretch, Freeman said he and his teammates remain confident. He agreed with Morris that effort was a problem against Houston, but expects the team to rebound against Green Bay. ou have to go out and play with 100 percent effort, Freeman said. This leagues so competitive, if you dont go out and give it the best you have, youre not going to have a chance. Continued from 1B Battle of the Bays Sunday

Doctors think raising good cholesterol could be the next frontier in fighting heart disease. Most medicines now focus on lowering the bad form. Eli Lilly and Co.s evacetrapib showed good effects on cholesterol in a midstage study of 400 people testing the drug by itself or with other cholesterol-lowering drugs. Larger studies are needed to see whether this will prevent heart attacks. The study was discussed Tuesday at an American Heart Association conference.

C M Y K Dear Pharmacist: I read your DiabetesW ithout Drugs book, and I am on Step 3 feeling better, and have lost 18 pounds. I wass urprised to see such posit ive remarks about coffee, you really seem to approve of that for diabetics. Why?E verything I hear is that its bad. Thanks, M.E., Decatur, Ill. Answer: After years of being blamed for contributing to everything from heart disease to alien abductione pisodes, good news is brewing for the vilified coff ee bean. I want to state right here, right now, that I think thec offee (and espresso fine, especially if its organic ally grown, the problem is all the other stuff that goes into making your latte palat-a ble or scrumptious. Therein lies the problem for many people. A recently published Finnish study found that q uaffing three to four cups of joe daily can cut ones risk of developing type 2 diabetes by as much as 27 percent in men and 29 per-c ent in women. Jolt yourself with seven to nine cups per day, (which Im not advocating) andy oull sleep with your eyes wide open. Seriously, 79 cups, and those percent-a ges increase to 33 and 66 p ercent respectively. Another study conducted by the University of Sydneyi n Australia found that a similar daily intake of tea r esulted in a 20 percent reduction in the risk for developing diabetes. Now, percolate on thisa very recent Harvard studya lso found that consuming five cups a day slashed the r isk for diabetes. The scientists found that certain compounds couldr educe blood levels of a nasty inflammation subs tance (interleukin-6 percent. Just FYI, blood vessel i nflammation plays some role in the development of coronary heart disease, so t his is a very significant finding. H ow can this be you ask? I know, weve all heard the litany of dangers associated with coffee consumption: Elevated blood pressure,c holesterol, and homocysteine levels (another inflammation mediator), vasoconstriction, jitteriness, and anxiety which sometimes causing one to hallucinate thea forementioned aliens. Well, as it turns out, these a re believed to be only short-term effects. Longterm effects are much better.I n fact, the study cites that there isnt a clear long-term i mpact on blood pressure. And zapping the interleukin-6 and the inflamma-t ion it causes may be why the temporary elevations of cholesterol are rendered i nnocuous, since its believed that the only reason c holesterol clings to your artery walls is because of... drum roll ... inflammation. Anew study from the Archives of InternalM edicine concluded that women who drink four cups of coffee a day have a 20 percent lower risk of developing depression. Asimilar study previously d one in Finland also correlated caffeine consumption a mong men with lower incidences of depression and suicide. T ake it leaded like I do, you fellow wild-eyed bean lovers. Decaf coffee does not produce similar results. Suzy Cohen is a registered pharmacist and the author. For more information, visit www.

Then also those who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. (First Corinthians 15:17,18 The Spirit through the peno f Paul sets forth in clear language the importance and power of the risen Messiah. This doctrine permeates the gospel of Christ and isf undamental in the scheme of redemption. As was the case in the first century so it is today there are those (in and out of Christendom) who claim that Jesus wasn ot crucified and therefore was not raised from the d ead. But now Christ is risen from the dead, and hasb ecome the firstfruits of those who have fallen a sleep. (1 Corinthians 15:20) Then observe the array of witnesses listed in verses 5-8. It is interesting to note the writing of a selfa ppointed prophet some 600 years after the resurrect ion: And because of their saying: We slew the Messiah Jesus son of Mary, Allahsm essenger They slew him not nor crucified, but it a ppeared so unto them; and lo! those who disagree concerning it are in doubt there-o f; they have no knowledge thereof save pursuit of a conjecture; they slew him n ot for certain. (Qur`an, Surah IV, 157). C ontrast this to Jesus own statement in Matthew 20:18,19 and the apostles in Acts 2 regarding the death and resurrection of theM essiah. Ahmed Deedat, a Muslim writer, stated: Let me give you a quick summary of the points we have discussed so far, concluding that Jesus Christ was neither killed norw as he crucified, as alleged by the Christians and the Jews, but he was alive! (Crucifixion or Crucifiction,p age 78, written in l984). Then he lists 30 points in an effort to verify his claim that Jesus was not crucified/died. Yahiya Emerick stated, So in their anger they plotted to crucify him on a Roman cross. But Jesus slipped from their grip at the last moment, and all the while they thought they hads ucceeded. They were sure they had killed him, but God a nswered Jesusprayer and saved him from their schemes. Confusion over-t ook the mob and they might have killed the man who b etrayed Jesus instead. In any case, Jesus escaped from their grasp. (Who Was Jesus?) Once again, it is refreshi ng and uplifting to read in the four gospel accounts of e yewitnesses of the death and burial of the Lamb of God. T he 12 stood boldly on Pentecost in Jerusalem and d eclared the resurrection of Jesus: Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus ofN azareth, a Man attested by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs which G od did through Him in your midst, as you yours elves know Him, being delivered by the determined council and foreknowledgeo f God, you have taken by lawless hands, have crucified, and put to death; whom God raised up, having loosed the pains of deathb ecause it was not possible that He should be held by it. (Acts 2:22-24 This was within 50 days of Jesusdeath and resurrec-t ion and these claims were not refuted. In fact, some 3,000 souls (verses 36-41 were convicted of the Truth proclaimed. As further evidence of the p ower of the resurrection of the Messiah, Peter proc laimed; Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who accordingt o His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living h ope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

Bishop William Lori, leader of a new national reli-g ious liberty committee, condemned federal and state policies that he said interfered with the churchs ability to provide social services, from health care to immi-g rant support to international aid. I n Illinois, government officials stopped working with Catholic Charities ona doptions and foster-care placements after 40 years b ecause the agency refused to recognize a new civil union law. Illinois bishops had sued the state but on Monday said t hey would stop the legal fight and no longer provide state-funded services. In New York, the bishops, along with Orthodox Jewishl eaders and others, have complained that the religious exception in this years law allowing gay marriage is too weak to be effective. On the federal level, the b ishops have been pressing the Health and Human S ervices Department during its public comment period for a broader religious exceptiont o part of President Barack Obamas health care overhaul t hat mandates private insurers pay for contraception. e should not be obliged to provide services or other i nitiatives that are contrary to our conscience, said Lori, bishop of Bridgeport, Conn. e dont need the government forcing our hand. A rchbishop Timothy Dolan, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, said the bishops are not just reacting to Obamas policies, but to a broaders ociety in a drive to neuter religion and push religion b ack into the sacristy Thats a cultural issue that the church has been con-c erned about forever, not just in the United States, Dolan s aid. But Dolan said he discussed the churchs concerns with Obama when the two m en met last week in the Oval Office. The archbishop said Obama was extraordinarily friendly and very ardent in reassuring Dolant hat the administration would look into the problems. I left there feeling a bit more at peace with this issue than when I entered, Dolan said. R eligious freedom was the main focus at the fall meeting o f the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, which has public sessions throughT uesday. The new religious liberty c ommittee that church leaders formed met for the first time. Anthony Picarello, general counsel for the confere nce, will oversee that work, which will include hiring a lobbyist and another attorney. Picarello had worked for seven years at the BecketF und for Religious Liberty, a public-interest law firm based in Washington, and also served on an advisory committee for Obamas Office of Faith-Based andN eighborhood Partnerships. Bishops hope to persuade f ederal lawmakers to retain the Defense of Marriage Act, which passed in 1996, andl aunched a new website called Marriageuniquefora r eason.org. Obama has said his administration would no longer defend the law, calling it counter to the Constitution. Bishops said it was wrong to describe theirr eligious convictions as discrimination. The church has nothing against compromise, but we cant compromise principle,D olan said. The bishops are confronting the Health and Human Services Department on another front. The govern-m ent agency recently decided not to renew a contract held since 2006 by the bishop refugee services office to help victims of human trafficking. T he American Civil Liberties Union is suing to s top the agency from making grants to groups who impose religiously basedr estrictions on reproductive health services for human t rafficking victims. The women are often raped and forced into prostitution by their captors. Bishops say government eroding religious liberty We should not be obliged to provide services or other initiatives that are c ontrary to our conscience. We dont need the government forcing our handWILLIAMLORI b ishop


C M Y K Associated PressSPRINGHILL, La. Plans to include a living nativity scene in the courtyard of the Springhill Branch Library have stirred controversy in this northern Louisiana city. Letha Dew, who is leading Christmas season planning for the Main Street community program, said library officials refused to permit anything with religious tones on the library grounds. The nativity scene by a First Assembly of God youth group will appear next month on the triangle-shaped property at the head of Main Street owned by the city of Springhill. It will be among the numerous church, choir and handbell groups spread out up and down Main Street to entice visitors to walk the area and take part in the holiday spirit. They said we could not have anything there that had religious icons or religious tones, but I understood her to say anything religious-based or sponsored, which a nativity scene would be, Dew said of her conversation with the unidentified library manager. Beverly Hammett, Webster Parish Library System director, said Tuesday that she would release a statement on the librarys position but was awaiting advice of legal counsel. Should library officials reverse their decision, Dew is open to using the librarys property. If there are no restrictions, then most definitely well move something there, Dew said. Recently, I needed to make a trip to visit some relatives. T hese days, the way the economy and gas prices are it turns out to be cheaper to fly. Even though, airlines no longer serve the deliciousf ood of which they became famous. Several aspects about airplanes that give me cause for alarm. The person whod esigned the modern-day airplane must have used one of the dwarfs for a model. Imt hinking, Grumpy. The seats, for example, are not built for the average posterior. I knowI need to go on a diet but my airplane seat does not have to r emind me of that auspicious fact. The restrooms do not have a ny room whatsoever to rest in them. The last one I was i n I had to step outside in order to change my mind. What were they thinking when they designed and built these restrooms? P ersonally, I think it is a conspiracy on the part of the e ntire airline industry to harass those of us who are diminutive challenged. H owever, I can live with some of these inconvenience s. I do not really mind flying it is the airports that I cannot stand. I f there were some way to fly the friendly skies and eliminate airports I would bea happy flyer. It has been a while since I f lew the friendly skies and so I had forgotten some of the airport rigmarole that paying customers must go through. I am surprised with all of thef ees associated with flying these days someone has not c ome up with the bright idea of charging a fee for every-o ne to be patted down. In order to get to the airplane you have to go througha very sophisticated technological gateway. I had forgot-t en how thoroughly they check out their passengers. Everything needs placed into a tray, which then goes through a scanner to makes ure nobody is transporting a bomb in his or her baggage. Then comes the dangerous part. Everybody has to take off his or her shoes, which makes the whole airport smell as if some bomb did go off. Not only shoes, but also everybody has to empty their pockets and take off all jewelry. T hen, after putting all of my stuff in these trays, I was to walk through an archway to make sure I was not transporting a bomb in my under-w ear. As I walked through the buzzer went off. Sir, do you have anything in your pockets? I looked and found a pen, s o I had to take that out and put in a tray. A gain, I walked through and the buzzer went off again. Sir, is there anything else in your pockets? M y wallet with credit cards and such things, which I did not realize was setting the buzzer off. I placed my wallet into the tray and thenw alked to the archway again. The buzzer went off again. A t this point I was a little confused because I did not know what else I could takeo ff. Therefore, I took off my sweater. Maybe something in t he buttons that the archway did not like. Then the man on the other s ide of the archway spied what he thought was the trouble and said, Sir, you have to take off your suspenders. Say what? I said in alarm. ou have to remove your suspenders. I looked at the man and t hen said, You do know the purpose of suspenders, dont y ou? With a distant disdain in h is voice he simply said, Sir, you will have to remove your suspenders. By the tone of his voice, I ascertained that he did noth ave the foggiest idea of the purpose of a gentlemans suspenders. I wear suspenders because they are fashionable, comfortable ands erve a vital purpose for me. I looked at him and said, Have you ever heard of wardrobe malfunction? Sir, he said in a practiced monotone, you willh ave to remove your suspenders. I saw no way around this obstacle and if I wanted to get onto the airplane, I would n eed to go through this archway. Slowly I took off my suspenders and put them in a tray to send through the scanner. T he archway buzzer did not go off this time, which was a relief to me, but once Iw as through the archway things happened. As I reached for the tray on thec onveyor, I suddenly felt a gentle breeze, heard several s hrieks behind me and felt something grab my ankles. Wardrobe malfunction!S ure, you can grab your trousers and pulled them up b ut you still have to live with the fact that you actually mooned potential fellow passengers on the airplane. I am not sure which is w orse. Abomb in your underwear, or, your underw ear on display. After adjusting everything and picking up my briefcase,I noticed several people pointing in my direction and l aughing. Believe me, a wardrobe malfunction is not anything to laugh at unless of c ourse it happens to someone else. Sitting in the airplane waiting to take off a verse of Scripture dominated myt hinking. These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribula-t ion: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world, ( John 16:33 KJV). Whatever our tribulations m ight be, we can rest unabashed in the finished work of Jesus Christ. The Rev. James L. Snyder is p astor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483.

C M Y K B y CHRISTYLEMIRE APMovie CriticAlexander Payne makes movies about men on the brink of a nervous breakdown, of personal or profes-s ional ruin and, ultimately, maybe even some harde arned peace. That was true of Matthew Brodericks scheming teacher in Election, Jack Nicholsons searching retiree in About S chmidt and Paul Giamattis sloppy oenophile in Sideways, and its cert ainly true of George Clooney in The Descendants. As real-estate lawyer Matt King, he finds everything inh is life is in flux and on the verge of collapse simultaneously. He isnt just functioning one day at a time, hes navigating the chaos oneh our at a time. This isnt any easier even though he lives in H awaii, a place thats supposed to be paradise. C looney being Clooney, though, he makes every stage of his characters arc believable, from grief through anger and eventual accept-a nce, and he gives a performance thats so understated as to appear effortless. Having long ago learned to jettison movie-star vanity to playv aried, challenging parts and having turned 50 this year Clooney now seems comfortable portraying regular guys with regular problems. What Matt must endure cumulatively is extraordinary, but elements of his journey will surely resonate with ordinary folks. M atts wife, Elizabeth, is lying in a hospital bed in a coma following a boating accident. By all accounts, shes been a bit of a wildc hild her whole life, but now there isnt much hope that s hes going to make it. Matt, who hasnt been the mosta vailable or hands-on father, must now take care of the couples two daughters on his own: 17-year-old boarding school rebel Alexandra( Shailene Woodley) and 10year-old troublemaker Scottie (Amara Miller Matt and the girls must make the rounds to friendsa nd family to explain there isnt much time left for Elizabeth and to give them a chance to say their goodb yes. This process would seem wrenching enough, but Alexandra insists on making it even more difficult by bringing along her idiotb oyfriend, Sid (Nick Krause for moral support. T hen she drops another bombshell on her father: Elizabeth was having ana ffair at the time of her accident. Matt is understandably i ncensed by the discovery, but hes also curious to find out who this guy is, and his b umbling attempts at casual stalking provide some muchneeded comic relief. As if all this werent enough to handle, Mattse normous family has put him in charge of deciding what to do with the 25,000 acres of pristine land on Kauai that theyve inherited from theirr oyal Hawaiian ancestors. A deadline is looming to choose w hether to sell it to developers, and to whom, and forh ow much; this burden of privilege is what gives the film, based on the novel by Kaui Hart Hemmings, its title. (Payne adapted thes cript with Nat Faxon and Jim Rash.) Matt wades through all these troubles, and while everything would seem to bea t stake at once, Paynes pacing is often so languid that we dont feel the sort of mounting tension that we s hould. Maybe it has something to do with the laid-back setting (although it is novel to see this beautiful place through the eyes of everydayr esidents, rather than tourists). The Descendants a lso loses some of its power in the frequent use of voiceover, which tends tos pell out too much. But the story keeps you g uessing as to where it will go, and it features some piercing moments of emot ional truth. The casting of Matthew Lillard as the other man is an unexpected and inspired choice, and the inevitable confrontation withh im takes some surprising turns; this is also true of the interactions with his wife, played by Judy Greer. This is, of course, C looneys show hes in nearly every moment of the f ilm, and he delivers a doozy of a moment-of-truth speech but both young actresses who play his daughters hold their own beautifully with him. Woodley in particular s hows a confident spark as her character believably develops from a state of bitter resentment to mature responsibility. T he last shot indicates how all three of them have changed with quiet uplift. D earAbby: My fiance, Todd, and I have been together for four years. He pro-p osed this summer and our wedding is planned for next year. I thought planning our wed-d ing would be fun, but it has turned out to be a nightmare. I want orange as our primary color, but now Todd is saying he hates thec olor orange, although he never mentioned it before. I tried to get him to agree to pair it with a color of his choice, but he refused. T odd is being unreasonable and will not agree w ith me on the color. Since it mainly affects the bridal party, I feel it should be my decision. He says it isnt, and that he wont evenw ear an orange tie or anything like it. What is your o pinion? Stuck On The Color in Georgia D earStuck: This isnt just your wedding; its T odds wedding, too. If he would find standing at the altar opposite a line of b ridesmaids clad in orange to be a turnoff and dislikes the color so much that he refuses to wear a tie or boutonniere thats orange then agree on some other color. This is only one of the many compromises that lie ahead for you, so start practicingw ith this one. D earAbby: Two months ago, my brother and hisw ife asked me to move in with them. Its beautiful here, they have a lovely home and have been extremely hospitable fort he most part. The problem is they fight like cats and dogs. It gets so bad sometimes that the neighbors have to call the police. O nce a week without fail, they have a huge spat about one thing or another and argue at all hours of the day and night. They break things, curse and call each other names I wouldt call my worst enemy. IfI had known they were this unhappy, I would never h ave moved in. Theyve been together for so long, this may just be their way ofc ommunicating, but I cant put up with the long days and sleepless nights. Its begin-n ing to wear on my sanity. How do I tell them I a ppreciate them for letting me stay, but I can no longer take the constantf ighting? Thanks, But No T hanks DEAR TBNT: Thank them for their hospitalitya nd for offering to share their lovely home with y ou, but that you will be moving to a place of your own. If they ask you why, tell them that you love them both, but the longd ays and sleepless nights when they argue are prev enting you from getting the rest you need. Its the truth, and it probably wontb e the first time theyve heard it. DearAbby: I am a middle-aged woman who is B aptist by faith. I believe that when I die I will go to heaven. My problem is, if going to heaven means being reunited with myp arents and other family members, then I dont want to go! The idea of spending eternity with them is more than I can stand, but Id ont want to go to hell, either. Any thoughts? Eternally Confused in Mississippi D earEternally Confused in Mississippi: Yes.

Clooney manages chaos in The Descendants Movie Review The Descendants R ating: R (language including some sexual references) Running time: 115 minutes Review: (of 4 Associated PressDUBLIN, Ga. Karl Slover, one of the last surviving actors who played Munchkins in the 1939 classic film, The Wizard of Oz, has died. He was 93. The 4-foot-5 Slover died of cardiopulmonary arrest Tuesday afternoon in a central Georgia hospital, said Laurens County Deputy Coroner Nathan Stanley. According to friends, as recently as last weekend, Slover appeared at events in the suburban Chicago area. Slover was best known for playing the lead trumpeter in the Munchkinsband but also had roles as a townsman and soldier in the film, said John Fricke, author of Years of Oz and five other books on the movie and its star, Judy Garland. Slover was one of the tiniest male Munchkins in the movie. Long after Slover retired, he continued to appear around the country at festivals and events related to the movie. He was one of seven Munchkins at the 2007 unveiling of a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame dedicated to the little people in the movie. Only three remain of the 124 diminutive actors who played the beloved Munchkins. He has a genuine immortality, Fricke said. Of the 124 little people, hes one of the handful who got to enjoy this latter-day fame, to have people know who he was and be able to pick him out of the crowd in the movie. Slover is the first of the three trumpeters to herald the Munchkin mayor when he makes his entrance. Slover had been cast to play the second trumpeter but switched when another actor got stage fight during filiming, said longtime friend Allen Pease. Oz Munchkin Karl Slover dies at 93


C M Y K LIVING 12B PA GE News-Sun Friday, November 18, 2011 Because of The Muppet Movie, Moving Right Along is a song that always comes to mind during road trips. And (Its Not That Easy) BeinGreen, is a song that made everyone fall in love with a 2-foot-high frog. The Muppets music has crossed generations and spans musical genres, from Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem with their wild and wooly backbeat, Animal to Rowlfs mellow piano man vibe. So many of these songs were burned into our brains by a fuzzy little chorus of dogs and bears and chickens and things, that people still love those songs 30 years later, as evidenced by The Green Album that was released in August, with indie and rock stars such as OK Go, Weezer, The Fray and Andrew Bird performing classic Muppet songs. Those old favorites and new songs will surely be a huge part of the new Muppet movie, too. Walt Disney Records will release the soundtrack Nov. 21. Original songs, such as Lifes a Happy Song, were written by music supervisor Bret McKenzie, of the delightfully wacky Flight of the Conchords. The Muppets are performing several cover songs, including Smells Like Teen Spirit, by Nirvana, and Cee Los Forget You. The Muppets also will be dipping back into the well, inspiring sing-alongs with The Rainbow Connection and Mahna Mahna. Merrie Leininger, MCTBYMERRIELEININGERMcClatchy-Tribunen the s and s The Muppet Show was required viewing, in part because each week one of the most popular faces of the age such as Elton John, Mark Hamill or Paul Simon was sharing the stage with Kermit, Fozzie and Miss Piggy. The first season of the show in 1976 was a wild risk would adults watch a prime-time show about puppets? Creator and director Jim Henson called in favors from friends and coworkers to get stars to appear in the series. Rita Moreno was one of the first guests to sit on that wall with Kermit, and she got her EGOT receiving all four major entertainment awards when she won an Emmy for her singing, dancing and acting in episode 105 of The Muppet Show. By season two, the show was a hit and drawing celebrities such as Steve Martin, who brought his banjo. Martin also later appeared in The Muppet Movie as a snooty waiter serving Piggy and Kermit. After the show became spectacularly popular, the biggest celebrities of the day were approaching the producers about starring alongside Kermit and singing with Rowlf. Harry Belafonte, Diana Ross, Carol Burnett and Christopher Reeve all appeared on the show. Brooke Shields was the youngest guest star ever to appear on the show, when she appeared in the fifth season at age 14. She also got hit on by Rizzo the rat in a diner scene during The Muppets Take Manhattan. Now kids who grew up with the Muppets are having their dreams of singing alongside Kermit realized. Jason Segel (How I Met Your Mother) gets the credit for bringing the Muppets back to the big screen. He pitched his idea to Disney after performing a puppet vampire musical in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. He co-wrote, co-produced and is starring in the new film. He said that the set had more visitors than anything hes ever worked on people clamored to meet Kermit and Piggy. I must say, there is something intrinsic of anyone who grew up with the Muppets. They have a wild love for the Muppets that comes out as soon as they come to set. Almost everybody legitimately freaked out, Segel said in an interview with MTVNews. I think the thing that was the coolest was seeing Academy Award winner Chris Cooper hes not a cameo; hes our villain. But this guy is one of the best actors alive, and to see him talking to these Muppets, looking them straight in the eye and laughing, theres a puppeteer right next to the Muppet, operating the puppet, but he looks straight at the puppet, and to see that that even happens to someone like Chris Cooper, it reaffirmed everything that I was working for The thrust of The Muppets, in theaters Nov. 23, involves the gang getting back together and recruiting celebrities to revive the old variety show, so theres a whole new generation of stars who pop up in this film, from Amy Adams (Enchanted Krasinski (The Office), Donald Glover (Community), singers Katy Perry and Selena Gomez, and Rico Rodriguez (Modern Family(Originally voiced by Jim HensonC reated for Jim Hensons TV show Sam and Friends, which aired in 5-minute segments from 1955 to 1961. Kermit later went on to Sesame Street, where he had memorable appearances as a news reporter and singing (Its Not That Easy) BeinGreen. But his star was born when he became host of The Muppet Show which also is where Miss Piggy b egan pursuing him, frequently to his dismay. Fozzie Bear entered the fray on The Muppet Show as Kermits best friend. From The Muppet Show, the gang, l ed by Kermit, starred in a series of movies on the big screen, including The Muppet Movie, The Great Muppet Caper and The Muppets Take Manhattan.Catchphrase:Hi-ho, Kermit t he Frog here!SOURCES: HTTP://MUPPET.WIKIA.COM/WIKI/CATEGORY:THE_MUPPETS_CHARACTERS; HTTP://WWW.MUSEUM.TV/EOTVSECTION.PHP?ENTRYCODE=MUPPETSHOW; HTTP://KIDS.NIEHS.NIH.GOV/GAMES/SONGS/MOVIES/GREENMID.HTM; SMITHSONIAN MAGAZINE; JIM HENSON: THE WORKS BYCHRISTOPHER FINCH. Wacky characters have crossgenerational appeal and inspire cameos by celebrities of all ages(Originally voiced by Frank OzMiss Piggys character originally started as a running gag, but s he soon developed into a complex character, destined for stardom and a diva in the full sense of the word shell vacillate from sweet, smothering her Kermie in kisses, to sending him flying with her infamous karate chop (hiiiiiiiiiii-yah! But one of the greatest elements of her character is her undying love for her Kermie. She pursued him endlessly and was frequently rebuffed at the beginning of their c ourtship. But persistence paid off and Kermit started returning her affections. The pair was married to Kermits surprise in T he M uppets Take Manhattan. F un fact:Miss Piggy was originally named after jazz singer Peggy Lee as a joke and an homage to her considerable talents. Piggys name was shortened from Miss Piggy Lee because no one wanted to offend Peggy Lee. ( Originally voiced by Frank Oz)Fozzie, created as Frank Ozs m ain character, is The Muppet Shows undeniably bad comedian. Fozzies indefatigable optimism grew from his failure as a comedian and created his endearing personality as we know it today. Fozzie and Kermit are best friends, having worked together on numerous sketches, movies, books and specials. Fozzie also frequently collaborates with Rowlf, and together they played a memorable piano duet much to Fozzies surprise, since playing the piano was a previously unknown talent.Catchphrase: ocka wocka wocka!(Originally voiced by Jim HensonIt wasnt Kermit, but Rowlf the Dog who was the first national star of the Muppets. In 1962 he first appeared in a series of Purina Dog Chow commercials. He then rose to stardom as Jimmy Deans sidekick on The Jimmy Dean S how, from 1963 to 1966. He and Kermit later appeared together in a pitch reel for Sesame Street, since they were the two best-known Muppets at the time. And, of course, he joined the cast of The Muppet Show as the resident musician, most often playing the piano, and was part of the cast in the subsequent movies. Fun fact:According to Jim Henson: The Works, other nam es considered by Jim Henson for Rowlf were Barkley, Woofington Baskerville, Barkus, Howlington, Waggington and Beowolf.(Voiced by Dave Goelz)The blue, crook-nosed uh, undetermined creature known as Gonzo the Great, was the daredevil on The Muppet Show performing such feats as eating a tire to Flight of the Bumblebee and hypnotizing chickens. Gonzo also was featured at the start of each Muppet Show. In the first season, he attempted to hit the white space within the O to hilariously bad results, and in season two onward he would attempt to play the final trumpet note, with equally bad results most of the time.Fun fact:Gonzos girlfriend is a chicken named Camilla.Kermit the Frog, center, plays the banjo in The Muppets.
