Change of Pace By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY c email@example.comSEBRING Alzheimers disease not only robs people of theirp ast,ultimately it takes away their ability to live in the present. The time comes when afflicted individuals cannot be left on their own,the dangers are too great s toves are turned on and then forgotten,people wander away from home and become hopelessly lost, or become malnourished by forgetting to eat. By the end,patients have to be cared for all day,every day. The strain of caring for loved ones who are slowly losing their minds is stressful,draining andd epressing. A new center opened May 1 that helps caregivers by providing a safe place for those with Alzheimers,or other dementias,t o spend the day stimulated by activities. Change of Pace,at 4514 Hammock Road,is a non-profit organization,operating in space donated by the Sebring Christian Church. It is not a religious program,but God-centered and operated with a Christian heart. It welcomes anyone. C ora Schwingel,the administrator,explained that the center is the result of a group of ladies whom et in a grief group after losing their husbands to Alzheimers. Jean Maas,Ellen McKissock andE llen Spinder were a part of that early group and the primary forces behind creating the center.

According to Road and Bridge Supervisor Kyle Green,the county has the cost to spare on the asphalt produced and will give the special district a $92 per ton laid rate for the work. County records show a cost of $79 per ton cost for the materials and an average of $13 per ton for labor to pave the roads,which includes the cost for debt service on the asphalt plant. Green stated that the rate was the same as what t he county charges itself and would generate $381,340 in gross revenue. Market vendor quotes from the county gathered earlier in the year for resurfacing bids ran between $102 to $104 per ton,Green explained,and a recent spot bid was around $96 per ton laid in place. Green pointed out that although the county will do some minor base repair,subbase work and major base work was not included in the quote. Green also stressed the resurfacing would not bring any of the roads up to Department of Transportations current stanCounty to pave 5.83 miles of roads in Sun N Lake B y SAMANTHA GHOLAR firstname.lastname@example.orgSEBRING The Sebring City C ouncil voted to make a big change during Tuesday nights meeting that w ill affect a handful of city staff members. Council member John Clark a ddressed fellow members about the continued participation in the search for the CRA Executive Director position. The CRA search committee was composed of council members and citys taff as well as board and CRA members and Mayor George Hensley. Clark requested that the city no longer work as a part of the CRA search committee after a number ofc omplaints and issues that had been brought to committee and the council v ia letter from CRA Chair Kathy Malie.

C M Y K Inside Sonya Williams C olumbus, Ga., home is a special room full of cherished memories. Its called The Jesse Room. Named after her fallen h usband, Staff Sgt. Jesse Williams, its a place for Amaya, the couples sixyear-old daughter, to spend time with daddy. We talk about him all the time, Sonya said. Ever since the summer of 2004, when Staff Sgt. Williams walked into the restaurant Sonya was working in and asked the waitresso ut on a date, she was attracted to his charisma. W hen she initially hesitated to accept Jesses invitation, he was relentless in trying to convince her. ell, Im going back to I raq in nine days, and you may never see me again, the soldier, on leave from a combat deployment, said with a smile. S onya said yes, and spent the next nine days getting to know the charming warrior. Before and after Jesse returned to battle, Sonya found herself marveling at his brilliant sense of humor. I was really drawn to that, as was everybody, she said. His presence could fill up a whole room. On Dec. 23, 2004, about one month after Jesse returned from Iraq, the soldier asked Sonya to marry him. This time, the answer was a quick and resounding yes. On Dec. 23, 2006, Jesse and Sonya hugged and kissed each other for the last time while holding their sixmonth-old daughter. Once again, the soldier was returning to Iraq from middeployment leave, except this time, they both knew he wasnt coming back. It was at that moment at the airport that we knew wed never see each other again, Sonya said. That was certainly a turning point for me. Violence in Baqubah, an insurgent hotbed about 30 miles northeast of Baghdad, had reached a boiling point during the soldiers second deployment with the Armys Stryker Brigade Combat Team. Just three weeks before his death, Jesse and a fellow soldier risked their lives on the battlefield to pull their comrades out of a burning vehicle. Back in Santa Rosa, Calif., where the Williams family was living, Sonya and baby Amaya were driving to a relatives house for Easter S unday. While she knew in her heart that her husband w ouldnt come home alive, Sonya managed a smile when one of his favorite Bob Marley songs came on the radio. A t that exact moment on April 8, 2007, she later learned, Jesse was fighting on Baqubahs treacherous streets. According to theP entagon, the soldier, 25, was struck by small arms fire while conducting combat operations. Sonya was notified of her husbands death at her mothers house. I saw (the casualty officers) out of the corner of my eye, she recounted. My mom scooped the baby from my arms and I hit the floor Next for Sonya was a painful visit to the house of her husbands father, Herb Williams, with whom Jesse was extremely close. Later, a heartfelt letter the loyal son wrote to his dad before his first deployment in case of his death was found in the fallen heros wallet. Thank you for being my dad and thank you for never giving up on me, Jesse wrote. The soldier also asked his father for a special favor. t let me be forgotten, he wrote. After his death, an overwhelming response from the surrounding northern California community made clear that Staff Sgt. Jesse Williams would always be remembered. ruly, that is what helped us make it through it, Sonya said. It was totally unexpected. Even though the Army widow, 32, and her daughter have since moved to a new city, one constant is The Jesse Room. In these precious confines, young Amaya can often be found s itting with her mom and Sonyas fiance, a soldier who once served alongside J esse in Iraq. Every day, they share memories of A mayas dad. Over the years, Ive learned to embrace these moments the emotional moments because itr eminds me of how much I loved him and still love him, Sonya Williams said. As a little girl learns about her dad through photos, videos, and letters, perhaps we can create mores pace in our lives to appreciate Americas courageous m ilitary families. Without their sacrifices, every room in our homes would be empty.

C M Y K B y CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEYchristopher.email@example.comIt is never easy to admit a mistake, which I am doing in this column. I t is especially difficult when you are burdened with the truth you may have done harm. As a reporter I have a special obligation to be careful misleading readersi s the worst mistake a newspaper can make. When we reporters mislead our editors and publishers by being over-confident in our facts, we hurt them, too.E veryone loses: the editors and publishers who trusted us, the readers who counted on us and most of all the subject of whatever report was wrong. It is the subject who has to live with the fallout. I wrote an article about a meeting held by the police and fire pension f und board that took place June 14. It was printed in the June 20 edition on page 3A. T he issues were complex and participants spoke quickly, dealing with c omplicated, hard-to-understand procedures, rules and regulations. I am not saying this to excuse myself on the contrary, it meant I should have been even more careful, not double checkingb ut triple checking more than just what I thought were the facts but also my u nderstanding of them. While I thought I had done due diligence, in fact I had not. I n an effort to be accurate I contacted Avon Park City Manager Julian D eleon by e-mail after the meeting, to be sure I had understood his positions. He replied by e-mail with extended c omments to my questions and impressions. He was clear and concise. He took the time to send two em ails, one with corrections to the first. I worked off the wrong e-mail. This, t oo, is on me. In the introduction to the e-mail I received, Deleon directed my attention to portions highlighted in yellow. The e-mail I used had no highlighting. I should have immediatelyb een aware there was something wrong. It did not occur to me. I thought the yellow had disappeared when I printed it out. As a result of this error I misquoted Deleon, thus misleading our readers about the points he actually made. The worst harm comes from the fact t hat I did this in an article dealing with a subject police and fire pensions and their costs to the city which is highly emotional and affects many people. M y mistake made a difficult and painful issue harder to discuss and resolve. I apologize for my errors. I promise to make a more concerted effort to bes ure my understanding of any situation is accurate. I promise to double check any correspondence to be sure I am operating off the same page as whoever sends an e-mail. I especially apologize for inflaming a n already volatile situation. All I can say is that it was not done with foret hought or malice. Here is what Deleon wanted the public to know: The (pension fixed 5 percent contribution, the citys o bligations have increased every year since 2004. The contribution for fire was $45,000 in 2004, it has more than tripled in seven years to $175,000 annually. I have concerns over the longt erm sustainability as the citys obligations have continued to increase yearly. T here is another increase planned for 2013. ith $150,000 yearly commitment i n administrative fees, I urged the board (of trustees for the pension fund t o re-examine the rates paid, and the service received. I have uncontrollable expenditures, w hich pose a long term liability to the city. ... the board is spending about $ 150,000 annually in administrative on a recurring basis. If there is a way to c ompetitively procure some professional services, this could lead to savings, which would lower the citys obligation to contribute to the plan. (Pension fund administrator K napp stated that the pension board did not receive any notice of my presentation on Monday night (the regular city council meeting on June 11) she stated that she did not receive any notice at all that she just happened to show up that night. I responded by saying t hat I provided pension board member ( Jason) Lister with notice that these items would be raised as part of the budget presentation of scaling city c osts, which also included all city departments, health insurance, and ris k insurance costs. I further stated thatL ister informed me that board member Robinson had been noticed, then Robinson that he informed pension plan administrator Carol Knapp. She w as at the meeting, and her comments do not comport to those of the others present, which opposed her recollection of events. police board member claimed that the plan had earned $300,000 in 2010. I stated this was not a true market gain and the increase was most likely the r esult of the citys contribution for $166,000, the state contribution for $56,000 and the membership contribut ion. The pension attorney agreed to some degree with my comments. There were several complaints raised that city staff had presented w rong numbers in past years, and I c learly stated that I have only been h ere a year, and should not be judged by past practices. The board also stated that the New Sun and the plan administrator incorrectly reported my comments (in an article published on Wednesday, June 1 1) regarding my Monday presentatio n to council. Some board members felt t hat my presentation was selective and unfair. I disagreed and take the position that the presentation was on target, factual and highlights the heavy adminis-t rative overhead incurred from managi ng the pensions. I urged the board to look at various avenues, which could b e available to reduce expenses. I hav e taken this same position with all city services, not mutually exclusive to the board. If fees are reduced, everybody wins. As always, any time an error is pointed out, the News-Sun appreciates the opportunity to set the record straight, as we are doing in this case. additional advertising for the p osition, it is entirely possible that we may have wanted to hold off re-advertising fora few months, read the letter. T he letter also voiced a concern with funds used for the advertising of the position. Fund have been drawn f rom our budget, without our knowledge or approval and u sed to pay for advertising. City staff has had access tot he CRABudget and is able to take funds at will, which is not acceptable. Please do not take any funds directly from the CRAaccounts, unlessw ritten permission is given to do so, Malie stated in the letter. Clark said that after a lot of reflection, he wouldr equest that the City remove themselves from the process entirely of the hiring committee. The CRAis an autonomous organization...and Id just like to give it all back to them and let them have it. That means no city staff and its all theirs. If thats not acceptable then I will remove myself from the committee, Clark said. According to Councilman Andrew Fells, who served as liaison for CRApreviously, the CRAchose to add members of the council as well as Hensley and city staff members in order to follow the hiring polices of the city. o me it seems like you would go to a CRAmeeting and the CRAwould take that responsibility from the search committee or give one back and take it to the CRA. I agree with (Clark its bounced back and forth. I dont know that its beneficial to city staff to put their time into this. I dont really know that the CRAknows what direction they want to go in at this time, Fells said. Clark again stressed that he wanted the city removed from the process including city staff and council members, he clarified. Personally, I believe some of the members of the (CRA board have a hire in mind and thats fine, but lets not play the game. I recommend that the council step out and step away, Clark said. Council President John Griffin followed Clarks request, stating that he didnt have a problem with council members leaving the comm ittee, but thought city staff members should stay. ou got Charlotte (Mann f or hiring purposes and keeping everything legal and you g ot Bob (Hoffman) and Scott (Noethlich edgeable about hiring people. Those three should be left in there. Let them workw ith the CRAboard. Theyve never done this as a board. I mean Petes (Pollard there for 30 years; theyve never had to hire anyone like this, Griffin said. Fells added a final conc ern. I feel like regardless of w hat Bob, Scott or Charlotte may say, there have been times where Scott and I are ina CRAmeeting and we would explain the policy on how thec ity does things (and still did not want to do it that way. So my opinion is youre either going to follow the citys policy, and the city willh elp you follow that policy on hiring a department head, or you can do it your way and our city staff should not be involved in it, said Fells. I think the CRAcould handle it however it best saw fit if council didnt wish for city staff to be involved further, added City Attorney Bob Swaine. Clark made a motion that council remove all city involvement in the CRA executive director search. Two CRAmembers, Laurie Smith and Gene Brenner, both members of the CRA hiring committee, approached council following Clarks motion. I understand Councilman Clarks feeling about the letter. I was somewhat taken aback by the letter myself asa member of the search committee. But I dont feel that you should let that determine whether you are going to participate in this process or not.I think it is very important that you all be a part of this process, said Smith. Brenner, former CRA chairman, displayed an opposing view on the situation. I agree totally with him (Clarkstaff should hire the person that they want as executive director. Being autonomous means that its totally separate. I think theyre (CRA that should do it, Brenner said. Council members passed the motion with a 3-1 vote, Griffin casting the dissenting vote. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, June 22, 2012Page 3A GRIFFIN'S CARPET MART; 7.444"; 10"; Black; 6/22/12; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 0 0 7 7 5 5 5 5 C ontinued from page 1A Special to the News-SunSEBRING The Highlands County Sheriffs Office is requesting leads in an ongoing investigation of ah omicide that occurred Friday, Nov. 19, 2010.

C M Y K A s the U.S. Postal Service s truggles to balance its books under pressure from congressional rules that have required it to pay more up front for its workerspensions than most businesses, t he quasi-private/public agency has come up with a solution that smacks of a monopolistic pricing arrangement that would favor one national direct mail media company and hurt community newspapers big and small. More than two dozen members of Congress led b y U.S. House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell I ssa, and including Florida Rep. Connie Mack have w ritten Postmaster General Patrick Donahue to ask for a detailed justification for the proposed deal. The N ewspaper Association of A merica also asked the U.S. Postal Regulatory Commission to nix the proposal between the Postal Service and the Valassis company. The problem isnt the discounted rate, per se if that rate were applied in a manner thats fair to competitors. But the way the rules have been written, the deal essentially grants one company postage r ebates ranging from 20 perc ent to 36 percent for new mailings containing advertising by national retailers. In their letter, lawmakers assert that the rates would have unanticipated and adverse results on the mark etplace. True, and they w ould force newspaper companies, historically big and steady clients for the Postal Service, to take their busin ess elsewhere and look for cheaper delivery rates. I s a lose-lose proposition ... To have one special deal f or a single national company raises questions about antit rust shenanigans. The courts would have to m ake that call, of course, but its vexing that the Postal Service would view this one-s ize-fits-only-one-company proposal as a fair and profi table deal. Its not. The regulatory commiss ion will make its decision soon on the Postal Service proposal. It should stamp it return to sender and demand that any new a rrangement be true to the Postal Services mission of s erving all clients fairly, without prejudice. A n editorial from the Miami Herald.

Rick Helms has bailed this county out after previous and current commissioners hired Michael Wright, who turned out to be Michael Wrong [and] who was released (at a very high cost He took command at your request and worked for months at assistance pay while he did the jobs of the number one man.Later he got his new contract and continued his daily job for all the months this witch hunt has been going on. No one can explain to me (us this man did to be fired. Was it dereliction of duty? Was he always late, left early, drunk, misappropriated funds, showed favoritism, sexual harassment, and nepotism? No one can seem to put a finger on what exactly he did. I was at the county meeting this morning (June 19 like Don Elwell did (kudos Don almost everyone I have talked to want Rick Helms to keep his job. Mr. and Mrs. County Commissioners, your constituents do not, repeat, do not want you to fire him. He did nothing to deserve this. You might be looking at a lawsuit for unjustly firing him. This is wrong; this is not what the voters want done. To let the head man go in the middle of the biggest budget crisis we have ever encountered is Ludacris.Who do you think can do it better than Helms, another high-priced out-of-towner like last time? I ask you all to please reconsider your position on this matter.Shake hands, make up, and let the man get back to doing his best for the county he has worked for for 35 years. I know Rick personally, and I know he has too much pride, too much fear of God, and too much loyalty to his peers not to do a job and give it 110p ercent every day.He will take time to explain county situations with anybody who asks.He doesnt talk down or rude.He knows he works for us, as do you commissioners. I ask not just for myself, but for the majority of citizens to keep this man on the team.Highlands County needs him, more than he needs Highlands County. Please reconsider.

They ignored the fact the Republican Congress initiated the financial disaster that nearly bankrupted the American economy with the sub-prime toxic mortgage debacle from 2001-2008. They successfully blamed the Democrats and won the 2010 election; they stood by as the Republicans fought tooth and nail every inch of the way since day one to thwart any solution by President Obama. Now it comes to pass that the Tea Partiers realize that they too may be victimized by the latest effort to preserve the bonuses, deductions, exemptions and other perks the one percent has accrued, while passing the cost to the middle class. Remember, they claim to be middle class. Questions: Do they still have their pensions, health care, insurance? Have their taxes gone up? Do their relatives still have jobs, earn benefits and minimum wage? U.S. Representative John Boenor and Sen. McCollum are willing to play chicken with the national economy to support Corporate America and impoverish the middle class, believing the Democrats will cave in on the issue. Supposedly, those over 65 will keep their pensions and benefits, while those workers between 55-65 will keep current policies. Those under 60 will have to pay forward their retirement benefits and receive lower wages. The Republicans keep harping on the unfairness of government workers earning more and getting better retirement benefits, while the private sector earned more than government workers 30 years ago. Then Corporate America reversed it. So naturally private sector workers resented their plight. Today, all middle class workers can earn minimum age with no benefits. Gabriel Read Avon ParkRespect the flag throughout the yearEditor: Well its almost the Fourth of July, the time of the year for all those patriotic Americans to get out their garments made in China using mutilated flags of the United States of America to show how patriotic they are. I have no doubt that the same individual in Avon Park, who last year chastised me for defending our flag against such practices and stated he will use the flag any way he wants, will do so again this year. Nor did he believe theres an official handbook on how to display our flag. But there is, the title Our Flag, House Document 100-247 issued by the U. S. Government Printing Office. Once again Ill quote two statements: The flag should never be used as wearing apparel. No part of the flag should ever be used as a costume or athletic uniform. Now what is so difficult to understand about those two statements? To show respect for the flag fly it, dont wear it. Sandy Oleesky Sebring If you dont like s omething or want to get something d one, you dont let little things like the Constitutiong et in your way. For more than t hree years Emperor Obama has been behavinga s if the separation of powers is a pesky fly to be s watted away whenever it becomes too a nnoying. If Congress doesnt pass the legislation he desires, he uses his executive powers and regulatory agenciest o get his way. If he doesnt like a law or thinks its unconstitutional, he tells his minions and bureaucrats not to enforce it. In the past Emperor Obama used the EPAto cre-a te new cap-and-trade laws and the Department of H ealth and Human Services to force Catholics and other religious groups to go against their own consciences and provide theire mployees with abortion and birth-control coverage in their health care packages. His latest edict came last w eek when he decided it would be nice to give about 1.4 million undocumented young immigrants temporary relief from deportation. It didnt matter to Emperor Obama what the legislative branch thought about the DREAM Act, which would provide conditional permanent residency to the well-behaved children of parents who came to the U.S. illegally. It also didnt matter to him that various versions of the act had failed to get through Congress for 10 years. He signed an imperial order and pronounced that his administration would stop deporting young illegal immigrants who meet the requirements of the DREAM Act. In other words, once again our imperial president told Congress to buzz off. Saving his royal butt from being tossed out of the White House was more important than the rule of law and constitutional niceties. This latest presidential power grab really wasnt about helping young Latinos or working toward a long-run solution to a tricky immigration problem. It was about getting more Latinos to reward him with their votes in N ovember. Senator Marco R ubio had put forth an immigration plan thats ought a long-term solution, but now i s been shelved. Instead of doing the right thing and r eaching across the aisle to Rubio and working with h im, our imperious president played his u sual cynical game of political solitaire. Have you noticed how he never wants to solve anything in the long run?W hether its the payroll tax extension, the Keystone Pipeline or immigration, he wants it to remain an issue until December so he can use it as a ploy to get reelected. E mperor Obama obviously could not care less about h elping the Latino population. When Democrats had control of both houses of Congress he did absolutely nothing for them. W ith his short-sighted politicking, Emperor Obama has hurt the Latino cause in the long run. More important is his d isrespect for the U.S. Constitution. When he was elected president, not emperor, he raised his hand and swore to uphold the Constitution the whole Constitution. But like so-called Cafeteria Catholics, who pick and choose which rules of the Church theyll abide by, or like those who pick and choose which of the Ten Commandments to follow, Barack Obama has become a Cafeteria Constitutionalist. People on the right and many on the left are seriously concerned that we have an imperial president in the White House. Lets hope the America people will be made aware of it, too, because theyre the only ones who can dethrone Emperor Obama.

All DWC members are invited to join Van Pelt at Democratic Headquarters, 4216 Sebring Parkway. The meeting is open to members of the public. Light refreshments will be served. The DWCs monthly business m eeting will take place at 10 a.m., before Van Pelts presentation. A rticle 1 section 23 of the Florida Constitution statest hat "Every natural person has the right to be let alone and free from governmental i ntrusion into the person's private life." Why does the Florida legislature want to remove women from this very critical right? Van Pelts presentation will discuss answers to this question. Just as important to know about is the Florida legislat ive 2012 ballot initiative: Florida Religious Freedom, Amendment 8. Van Pelt will explain how to help educate F loridians on the dangers o f t his amendment to our civil society. The proposed meas-u re would prevent individuals from being barred from p articipating in public programs if they choose to use public funds at a religious provider. Essentially, the measure moves to repeal the states ban of public dollars for religious funding, also known as the Blaine Amendment.

Thats when Zimmerman said h e pulled the gun and shot the teenager. The tape shows two butterf ly bandages on the back of Zimmermans head and a nother on his nose. There are red marks on the front of his head. On the tape, Zimmerman did a reenactment of the scuf-f le with Martin in the moments before he shot the 1 7-year-old from Miami. Zimmerman said Martin kept slamming and slammingh is head on the sidewalk. It felt like my head was going t o explode, he said. Zimmerman told police the confrontation began when hes aw Martin walking toward him on the evening of Feb. 26. Z immerman had already called 911 after spotting the teen in the neighborhood. P olice say Martin was staying at his fathers girlfriends townhome in the Retreat at Twin Lakes, a gated community in Sanford.

The county agreed to resurface parts of 16 different roads for a total of 5.83 miles within the district. The paving would not effect the overall production of asphalt, Green said, nor the work on other county roads. This would do nothing to the existing permit at the asphalt plant, Green said. The work would take approximately 4,000 tons of materials from the county asphalt plant.

Change of Pace focuses on two major components: providing relief for caregivers,a nd enhancing the lives of clients. Maas said of caregivers, oure so exhausted, physically and emotionally. Myo ne regret is that I did too much for my husband. You just dont have the time, ort he energy, and its frustrating, so you tend to (lead them around) because itse asier At the same time, many c aregivers suffer terrible guilt leaving their loved ones in anothers hands. Thatf eeling is not helped when clients, confused and unsett led by any change in routine, resist an outsider or going to a new place. Being a caregiver is so difficult, Maas said, that 60t o 70 percent of them die before their loved one does. Allow us to help you, Schwingel said. It is essential to take care of ones self.T he center allows a caregiver to get rest, or have a day o ff to spend with friends or get things done. The loss of a spouse who w as once half of a team, the sudden need to deal with every problem alone often causes caregivers to feel anger, which adds to the g uilt. Getting relief helps caregivers deal with those complicated feelings, Schwingel said. T he center is staffed with 18 to 25 volunteers, depending on the season. They understand the challenges many from first-hand experi-e nce. All are trained through the Alzheimers Association and are screened for thec lients and their own safety. The struggle is to get to know the client, Schwingels aid. Typically their core personality does not go a way. We keep notes on what they like and dont like. We place ourselves int heir shoes, literally get down so we can see them e ye to eye. There are two main rooms at the center. One is quietly off to the side and filled with recliners. The other room isa huge space filled with tables covered with puzzles, b locks and games. There is an indoor putting green. Arts and crafts are part of thet herapy. Routine is very import ant, Schwingel said. That is one reason she recommends clients come on a regu lar basis the same day or two every week, for example. Snacks are served twice a day and lunch is brought in by Meals on Wheels. Speciald iet arrangements can be made. T he cost for a days care is $45, which includes the food. E llen McKissock founded the Sam McKissock sponsors hip fund to honor her husband, so there is help available for those in need. S chwingel said people are welcome to visit, but to call in advance so the center is sure to have someone available to conduct a tour. There is an intake p rocess, Schwingel said. The first time (you bring a l oved one) you cant just show up and drop them off. Change of Pace is open f rom 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and T hursday. It hosts a caregivers group from 1-2 p.m. Thursday. F or more information or to make an appointment, call 382-1188, or go to email@example.com.

Change of Pace offers respite for caregivers B y CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY firstname.lastname@example.orgSEBRING Cora Schwingel sat in her office at Change of Pace, an activities center for Alzheimersp atients and others suffering from varieties of dementia. Alzheimers is a sad, sad disease, she said. Not a single two (patients Theyre all moving at different paces, each going back-w ard until they dont know where they are. s not about good days or bad days, Schwingel explained. Its about snip-p ets of clarity that are gone in minutes. You have the body, but not the mind. The disease strikes people of every type and background those with graduate degrees, those who dropped out of school; those who were driven and controlling, those who went with the flow; those who kept fit, those who just sat. The disease develops slowly, but inexorably. According to alz.org, Alzheimers is the sixth leading cause of death and the only one in the top 10 t hat cannot be prevented, cured or even slowed. Also according to alz.org, currently an estimated 26 million people worldwide arel iving with Alzheimers; 5.4 million in the United States. As many as 16 million Americans will have Alzheimers by 2050. In Florida, those individuals 75 to 84 with Alzheimers have risen from 200,000 in 2000 to 210,000 in 2010 and are expected to reach 290,000 in 2025. There are currently an estimated 459,00 total cases in Florida. Schwingel said there are currently slightly more than 19,000 cases in Highlands, H ardee and Polk counties combined and an estimated 4,500 in Highlands County alone. That number, Schwingel s aid, is proportionately the highest in the state, although it has dropped about 500 cases since 2011. It is important to remember that Alzheimers is only one type of dementia and that some symptoms of other diseases mimic, but are not, symptoms of Alzheimers meningitis, for example. It also important to remember that everyone slows as they age. For example, it is perfectly normal to occasionally lose ones keys. It is not normal to put them in odd places, like the freezer or dishwasher. It is not unusual to forget parts of a conversation, but it is unusual to frequently forgete ntire conversations. There is a difference, in o ther words, between being unable to find a recipe, and being unable to follow the recipe directions. Although Alzheimers is a f earsome disease and difficult to face, experts say the earlier the diagnosis, the better the chances of getting care and maximizing onesq uality of life. Research is ongoing. Alot has been learned about what exactly happens to the brain, and progress has been made in the study of early onset Alzheimers, which has a genetic predisposition. There are useful web sites with good information, including alz.org (the Alzheimers Associations site) and helpguide.org. The Alzheimers Association can be reached at 800-272-3900.

The board decided in January to give all three municipalities $110,000 for the operation and maintenance of city owned and operated recreational parks and facilities. e are looking at options to make it more fair and equitable, Hancock told the commission. Option one included the municipalities getting 60 percent of their actual maintenance costs refunded for ball fields and $33,000 for all other parks. The first option also included an increase of 10 percent per year of that initial funding until 100 percent was funded by the county. Option two put all of the maintenance of parks and sporting facilities into the countys hands. Option three included the 60 percent funding which increased to 100 percent with 10 percent yearly increases, but included the entire recreation budget for the cities and did not differentiate between pay-for-play and passive recreation. Option three had a complete price tag of $557,533 far higher than the $330,000 the county spent last year. Option four included, according to Hancock, implementing a Municipal Service Benefit District, or MSBU, that placed the fee on the taxpayers. Hancock pointed out that the committee preferred option one. Commissioner Don Elwell, who took the gavel after board chairman Jack Richie left for family reasons, stated he felt taxpayers were already sharing their part of the burden. People in municipalities are paying more than once for recreation, they are paying twice, Elwell said. Elwell stood by his conviction that it was the responsibility of those using the fields to share the 50-60 percent of the maintenance. I dont mind the county assisting, but Im not comfortable going up to 100 percent, Elwell said. Commissioner Barbara Stewart reminded her peers the board could make no decision without first identifying available funds and the county was already late in getting a budget. e may not have enough money in our budget this year, Stewart said about recreational funding.

Jerry Sandusky is the victimo f overzealous investigators and accusers with financial motives who targeted the generous former Penn State assistant football coach, hisa ttorney said in his closing argument Thursday at his clients child sex abuse trial. Defense lawyer Joe Amendola repeatedly toldt he jury prosecutorscase doesnt make sense and they must acquit his client on the sex abuse charges that led to the firing of beloved head coach Joe Paterno.

C M Y K B y DAVID B. CARUSO and MICHAELSTOBBE Associated PressNEWYORK Call it c ompassionate, even political. But ... scientific? Several experts say theres no hard evidence to support the federal governmentsd eclaration this month that 50 kinds of cancer could be caused by exposure to World Trade Center dust. The decision could help h undreds of people get payouts from a multibillion-dollar World Trade Center health fund to repay those ailing after they breathed in toxic dust created by the col-l apsing twin towers on Sept. 11, 2001. B ut scientists say there is little research to prove that exposure to the toxic dustp lume caused even one kind of cancer. And many a cknowledge the payouts to cancer patients could take money away from those suffering from illnesses more definitively linked to Sept.1 1, like asthma and laryngitis. To imagine that there is strong evidence about any cancer resulting from 9/11 isn aive in the extreme, said Donald Berry, a biostatistics p rofessor at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. Y et this month, Dr. John Howard, who heads the federal agency that researches w orkplace illnesses, added scores of common and rare c ancers to a list that had previously included just 12 ailments caused by dust exposure. Lung, skin, breast and thyr oid cancer were among those added; of the most common types of cancer, only prostate cancer was excluded. e recognize how personal the issue of cancer anda ll of the health conditions related to the World Trade C enter tragedy are to 9/11 responders, survivors and their loved ones, Howard said in a June 8 statement. He declined requests for a n interview with The Associated Press. His decision, based on an advisory panels recommendation, will go through a publicc omment period and additional review before its final. Several factors about the decision by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health raised eyebrows in the scientific community: Only a few of the 17 people on the advisory panel are experts at tracking cancer and weighing causal risks; they were outnumbered by occupational physicians and advocates for Sept. 11 rescue and cleanup workers. Exposure to a cancercausing agent doesnt necessarily mean someone will develop cancer. And if they do, conventional medical wisdom says it generally takes decades. But the panel agreed to cover those diagnosed with cancer within just a few years of the disaster. The panel members favored adding cancers if there was any argument to include them. They added thyroid cancer because a study found a higher-thanexpected number of cases in firefighters who responded to 9/11, even though thyroid cancer is generally linked to genetics or high doses of radiation. The same study found a lower-than-expected number of lung cancers, but it was added because it was considered a plausible consequence of inhaling toxins at the site. Even lawyers for the first responders were stunned: They had expected to see only certain blood and respiratory cancers put on the list. I understand the urge to want to compensate andr eward the heroes and victims of that tragedy, said Dr. Alfred Neugut, a Columbia University oncologist and epidemiologist. But if were using medical compensation as the means to that, then we should be scientifically rigorous about it. When the twin towers coll apsed, much of lower Manhattan was enveloped in a dense cloud of pulverized glass and cement that left people in the area gasping for air. F ires smoldered in the rubble pile for weeks. Many w orkers labored in the ash wearing only flimsy paper masks, and went homec oughing up black phlegm. Years later, some were still e xperiencing mild respiratory problems. After Sept. 11, the government established the Victim Compensation Fund, whichp aid out about $7 billion for the nearly 3,000 deaths from t he attacks and for injuries, including some rescuers with lung problems. I n late 2010, Congress set up two programs for anyone e xposed to the rubble, smoke and dust at ground zero: rescue and cleanup workers ando thers who worked or lived in the area. Cancer was initially excluded, but Congress o rdered periodic reviews based on the latest scientific e vidence. One $1.55 billion program is for treatment for any illness determined to be related to ground zero. The second$ 2.78 billion fund is to compensate people who suffered economic losses or a diminished quality of life because of their illness. Both programs expire in 2016, but could be extended. H ow many people might apply isnt clear. In the d ecade since the attacks, about 60,000 people have enrolled in the two health programs for those who lived or worked within thed isaster zone of lower Manhattan. Many have signed up for medical monitoring, but around 16,000 have been getting treatmenta nnually. Every new illness added to the list means less money for the group as a whole, especially when dealing with major diseases like cancer, acknowledged Sheila Birnbaum, the special master handling applications to the compensation fund. Registration for the compensation program only began in October. How the money will be divvied up, or whether it will be enough, isnt clear, Birnbaum said. People with the gravest health problems would get the largest amounts, with cancer payments likely among the most sizable. Applicants could qualify for treatments and payments as long as they and their doctors make a plausible case that their disease was connected to the caustic dust. But is Sept. 11 really to blame for every cancer case? Overall, roughly 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will get cancer over their lifetimes. And generally, the more you look for cancer, the more cases you find. People worried that they got sick from the World Trade Center attacks are likely going to doctors more than other people. So some slowgrowing cancers that startedb efore 9/11 but were found afterward could end up being blamed on the fallout. Reggie Hilaire was a rookie police officer when the hijacked planes flew into the World Trade Center. Hes pent the initial weeks after the attacks patrolling H arlem, miles away from the disaster zone, then was sent to Staten Island, where he spent weeks at a city landfill sorting through rubble andl ooking for human remains. At the landfill, he wore a Tyvek suit, boots, gloves anda respirator to protect him. Months later, he also workeda s a guard near ground zero, wearing no protective gear but never working on the debris pile itself. Hilaire didnt develop the hacking cough or other problems experienced by those who inhaled big doses of soot. But he worried about his health, periodically visiting doctors offices and clinics. In 2005, at age 34, a lump showed up in his neck. He was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and successfully treated. Months later, he got more bad news: Doctors noticed he was anemic and investigated, leading to diagnosis of a second cancer multiple myeloma, a blood cancer normally seen in the elderly. Since roughly half of people with the diagnosis never get sick from it, doctors monitor a patients condition rather than put them through chemotherapy and other difficult treatments which is the case with Hilaire, still on the force. His medical bills have been covered by insurance, and to date, he hasnt applied for compensation from the federal fund. Doctors dont know what causes multiple myeloma, but say genetics plays a role and that it is more common in black men. Hilaire, who isb lack, is convinced that toxins at ground zero are to blame. Ive had cancer twice since 9/11, and Im 41 years old, he said. It would be some coincidence. The U.S. government traditionally has been cautious about labeling things as can-c er-causing agents, choosing to wait for multiple studies to confirm and reconfirm such a conclusion. The famed 1964 surgeon g enerals report that permanently tied smoking to lung cancer came out more than a decade after a series of studies showed the link. TheE nvironmental Protection Agency has taken decades to decide about other carcinogens. Howards agency, NIOSH, has a conservative reputation as well. B ut with this decision, Howard broke from that hist ory. I think this was a special case, said Richard Clapp, ap rofessor emeritus of environmental health at Boston U niversity. No question, bad stuff was in the air and on the ground. Asbestos, lead, mercury, PCBs and dioxins were allf ound at the smoldering World Trade Center site for m onths after the terror attacks. Dioxins have been associated with promotingt he growth of some preexisting cancerous cells, C lapp noted. Previous studies have shown some of the contami-n ants like asbestos, arsenic and soot, for example have led to cancers in w orkers exposed to hefty amounts for long periods of t ime. The fallout was a terrible mixture of toxins with significant potential to harm people, said Elizabeth Ward,a n American Cancer Society vice president and cancer researcher who headed the advisory panel that made the recommendation to Howard. This was a really unique exposure, said Ward. Based on the best available evidence, the panel decided it was likely that people couldg et cancer, she said, and that it was better to offer help now than when it was too late. Indeed, Howard and Ward h ave a number of supporters in the public health and scientific community who think it was the wisest decision, given the large human need. I think for Dr. Howard, its a very tough decision to make. Im sure he knew that whatever he said, people are going to complain about it, said Daniel Wartenberg, ane pidemiology professor at the University of Medicine & Dentistry of New Jersey. In my view, I hope he is wrong. I hope no one getss ick, he added. Amere two years after 9 /11, former New York City police detective John Walcott, 47, was successfully treated for a common type of leukemia that doesnt hitm ost people until about age 60. W alcott arrived at the World Trade Center just after the second tower fell ands pent months searching for human remains on the p ile, in empty buildings nearby, and later at the city landfill where the rubble hadb een taken. He was so sure his cancer would eventually be covered b y the federal program, he dropped his negligence laws uit against the city last winter, as was required to remain eligible for the fund. He is well aware that some scientists questionw hether illnesses like his were really caused by ground zero toxins. But he has no doubts. My heart told me I got it from there, he said. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, June 22, 2012Page 7A COWPOKES WATERING HOLE; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black plus three; process, 6/22/12; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 0 0 7 7 5 5 7 7 CENTRAL SECURITY; 3.639"; 2"; Black plus three; process, ad #3; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 0 0 7 7 6 6 0 0 Experts say science lacking on 9/11 and cancer MCT A New York City firefighter looks at what is left of the World Trade Center on Sept. 12, 2001.

C M Y K Associated PressBALTIMORE Secretariats winning time in the 1973 Preakness has been changed to reflect that the Triple Crown-winning colts time was actually faster than the stakes record. The Maryland Racing Commission voted 7-0 on Tuesday in a special hearing at Laurel Park to change the official time of the race from 1:54 2/5 to 1:53. That gives Secretariat records in each of his three Triple Crown races the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes that still stand. The commission investigated the official timing of the Preakness at the request of Secretariats 90-year-old owner, Penny Chenery, and Pimlico president Tom Chuckas. I didnt know if it was appropriate to cheer but I couldnt help myself, Chenery said. This is a big day The commission heard more than two hours of testimony, backed by modern technology, to prove Secretariats time was actually faster than the Preakness record of 1:53 2/5, set by Tanks Prospect in 1985 and equaled by Louis Quatorze in 1996 and Curlin in 2007. Justice was served, Chuckas said. The Secretariat team made a compelling case that he ran the race in 1:53 flat and added the Preakness record to his resume. This is terrific news for Mrs. Chenery, who has been diligent in her fight for nearly 40 years, and the entire sport of horse racing. The electronic timer in use at Pimlico for the 1973 Preakness recorded a winning time of 1:55. However, the clocking differed from two independent clockers from the Daily Racing Form who had each hand-timed the race at a much faster 1:53 2/5. In the days following the race, stewards and later the racing commission concluded that there were extenuating circumstances involving the electronic timers recording. As a result, the official time was subsequently changed to 1:54 2/5, the time reported by Pimlicos official hand clocker. It is wonderful for the sport to remove an asterisk By DAN HOEHNE firstname.lastname@example.orgThe day had finally arrived for Johnathan Knight. Two games into the Gulf C oast League season and the former Blue Streak saw his name in the line-up card for the first time batting ninth and playing center field for the Phillies rookie level affiliate against the Gulf Coast League Braves at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex. Up for the first time in the top of the third, Knight fell behind 1-and-2, but then turned on an inside fastball and ripped it into left for a single as part of the Phillies two-run inning that helped build a 3-1 lead. Before the game I was nervous, but during the game I was focused, he said. After that first hit, everything seemed easier Four Phillies errors, none by Knight, allowed eightB rave runs to come across over the next three innings. Knight came up next in the fourth and fell behind 0a nd-2, but worked the count, fouling off five p itches before earning his t eamsonly walk of the game. He was left stranded, and struck out swinging in the seventh against southpaw Elvin Garcia. After the Phillies scratched for a run in the eighth, Knight came up again to lead off the ninth. F alling behind again, 0and-2, Knight battled and fouled one off before smashing a ground through the left side that had enough steam to reach the warning track before it was retrieved, allowing him to reach second with a double. He moved to third on a g round out and scored on a bloop single by Francisco Silva, though that would be all the Phillies could muster as the Braves held on for the 9-6 win. Aloss for the team, the Phillies third in a row to start the season, but for Knight, going two-fort hree, with a walk and two runs scored not a bad way to make onesprofessional debut. If I can hit, they will find a spot for me and Ill be able to move up the ladder, he said. I just need to keep working hard, doing what I do and Ill be OK. As you may recall, if you read last weeks column, I had the opportunity to meet Dan Echols and his grandson, Louie. Louie is the poster child for the new Highlands tourism guide, and a recognized bass-fishing sensation. Hes been featured in numerous publications and is probably best known for l anding a 14-pound bass when he was only 7-years o ld. Meeting him and getting t o know Dan, his grandfather, was a real treat for me. But even better, was our time on the water last Friday. I picked them up around 5:30 a.m. and we headed south to Lake Istokpoga. As the sun came up, the fog was heavy so we started fishing at the mouth of the State Park launch site. Dan rigged up with a popper and young Louie started the day with his snake. If youve never seen the snake in action, you need to see it to believe it. This thing looks so alive its no wonder bass savagel y attack it. Y ears ago I ran into Doug Hannon, the Bass Professor on a fishing trip and he gave me a handful of his new snakes, along with special hooks and rattles. At the time, I had red, green and black but Louie informed me that theyve introduced more colors in the past few years. Louies casting abilities were remarkable for a boy of1 0 and I watched patiently as he worked the creature bait back to the boat, all of us expecting a strike throught he pads at any moment. But it wasnt meant to be. SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, June 22, 2012 Page 4B Fishin Around Don Norton Courtesy photo Dan and Louie with one of our days catch.

A big day for Knight By RALPH D. RUSSO Associated PressCHICAGO College football has always relied on polls and bowls to crown a national championship. It is an inexact science that has left many fans frustrated and wondering why they cant settle it on the field like every other sport with a playoff. Finally, the people in charge agree with the people in the stands. Amajor college football playoff, albeit a small one, is closer than ever to becoming a reality. The BCS commissioners have backed a plan for a four-team playoff with the sites for the national semifinals rotating among the major bowl games and a selection committee picking the participants. The plan will be presented to university presidents next week for approval. Once the presidents sign off and that seems likely major college footballs champion will be decided by a playoff for the first time, starting in 2014. The Bowl Championship Series is on its death bed. Even the name is likely to go away. e are excited to be on the threshold of creating a new postseason structure for college football that builds on the great popularity of our sport, Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick said Wednesday. All 11 commissioners stood shoulder-to-shoulder behind Swarbrick, who read the BCS statement from a podium set up in a hotel conference room. The commissioners have been working on reshaping college footballs postseason since January. The meeting Wednesday was the sixth formal gettogether of the year. They met for four hours and emerged with a commitment to stand behind a plan. I think were very unified, said Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany, who for years had been a staunch opponent of even the smallest playoff. For decades, major college football didnt even try to organize a championship game. The top teams played in marquee bowl games and if it happened to work out that No.1 and No. 2 squared off on New Years Day, well, all the better. When all the games were done, the voters in the AP poll would crown a champion and so would the coaches who vote in their poll. Sometimes there would be two No. 1s. In the 1990s, the commissioners of the major conferences came up with the idea to create a national title game, matching No. 1 vs. No. 2 every year. Eventually, that spawned College football closes in on a playoff finally News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE With school out fors ummer, there are some options for keeping the area youth active.

We finally moved on as the fog cleared, to the opening of Arbuckle Creek. This is a great place to fish for bass, in fact John Woods of Lorida Bait and Tackle recommended the spot to me. The key is moving water. If there is any current, bass will be there, and it a ppeared we were in luck as we watched the water swirl as it emptied into the lake. Dan continued working his popper and Louie switched to another lure asI worked the boat over the shallow sandbar built up at the mouth of the creek. Without warning, a huge fish blew up on Dans popper, missing the bait completely and refusing to come back for a second strike. The blast left us all a little shaken, but it was pretty encouraging since our first hour on the lake produced little else. I managed to pick up a bank runner on a plastic worm and after another hour, as the current died,w e moved on to another spot. Dans no slouch when it comes to working top water b aits. I watched him patiently w ork his popper over pads a nd between reeds with a surgeons precision. Its no wonder Louie is the fisherman that he is with such a great mentor and teacher. Passing along 60 years of fishing knowledge to Louie will benefit him for the rest of his life. Its always amazed me that you can catch bass in a spot one day and the next day, same time, same place, nothing. Thats kind of what happened to last Friday. I had gone out Thursday to check on a few spots I wanted to fish with Louie and Dan when I happened on a stretch of reeds not 200-yards long, where I caught 17 bass in less than three hours. The fish were just stacked on top of each other. Every flip with my 4inch blue/black yum dinger produced a strike. All the fish I caught out of that small stretch of reeds were nice, fat, healthy looking fish the biggest was 23 inches long. I caught all the fish between 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. By noon, the fish vanished and it got hot. So, of course, I took Dan and Louie to my hot spot. Flipping was the best approach, and I was surprised how well Louie could flip with a spinning rod. Id tried years ago to use a spinning rod to flip baits and it always seemed the line would tangle on the handle. B ut Louie handled his custom built spinning rod like a pro and made flipping a bait look incredibly s imple. We fished that area for hours, going back and f orth, assuming the bass would move-in at some p oint in the day and caught a grand total of six bass, n one of which were worth writing home about. The most exciting strike came from a toothy gar thatI somehow managed to hook and bring into the boat. Louie wanted a picture of it, but it took him forever to get a grip on it long enoug h for a picture. Its funny, but Ive had a box full of Doug Hannons Snakes for over ten years, and with the exception of trying them out once or twice, theyve just been sitting in a plastic box. Wonder how many other old lures I have that I havent used in a while that might help me catch that great ole big un. I think the highlight of the trip for Louie was driving my Ranger Bass Boat. He looked pretty serious a s he piloted us back to the b oat ramp. All in all, it was a great trip. I learned how to throw and work the snake from Louie, and I watched a real master work his top water baits. L ast but not least, I got an email from an old friend of mine, Paul Tardiff from Sebring. He used to fish some of the tournaments I held and it sounds like hes still catching some really nice bass. The picture of Paul holding up an 8-and-a-half pounder could have been run twice since he caughtt wo fish of identical size on the same trip. Nice job Paul. Don Norton is a professional t ournament bass fisherman, bass fishing guide, and custom rod builder. He has also taughta few fishing classes at the S outh Florida Community College. He lives in the Golf H ammock area of Sebring with his wife Lexie and is the owner of a custom rod building company appropriately named The American Fisherman.

Instead of solving the problem of crowning a champion, the BCS only seemed to exasperate fans even more. Too often, using polls and computer ratings to narrow the field to two teams was all but impossible. Like last year, when Alabama lost to LSU in the regular season, but ended up getting a second crack at the Tigers in the BCS title game despite having the same record as Big 12 champion Oklahoma State. The Crimson Tide validated their appearance by trouncing LSU and winning the BCS title, but many outside of SEC country were left unsatisfied. Under the commissioners proposal, Alabama and Oklahoma State likely would have played in one semifinal while LSU played Pac-12 champion Oregon in the other. No doubt many will wonder, Why only four? Im sure it wont satisfy everyone, Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said. Until you have an eight-team or 16-team seeded playoff, there will be folks out there that arent completely satisfied. We get that. But were trying to balance other important parties, like the value of the regular season, the bowls, the academic calendar The commissioners refrained from providing many specifics of the plan in their announcement. Scott did say the two semifinals would be worked into the existing major bowls and the site of the national championship game will be bid out to any city that wants it, the way the NFLdoes with the Super Bowl. People with firsthand knowledge of the decision told The Associated Press that the semifinals of the proposed plan would rotate among the major bowls and not be tied to traditional conference relationships. They also said that under the plan a selection committee would choose the schools that play for the national title. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the commissioners did not want to reveal many details before talking to their bosses. I am delighted, said SEC Commissioner Mike Slive, whose push for a fourteam playoff in 2008 was shot down. I am pleased with the progress we have made. There are some differences, but we will work them out. Were trying to do what is in the best interest of the game. It will certainly be in the best financial interest. The BCS television contract with ESPN along with the Rose Bowls separate contract with ABC pays the participating schools $155 million per year. BCS officials wont put an exact number on it, but they arent shy about saying that a playoff would be worth much more. Probably more than double. How that money will be split up among the conferences is still to be determined, and will likely be a point of contention with high-profile and high revenue generating leagues such as the SEC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12 and Atlantic Coast Conference getting more than the likes of the Mountain West and Conference USA. The rebuilt Big East could be looking at being bumped to second-tier status. But before they split up the pot, there were other details that needed to be sorted out. There was some debate about whether to have semifinal sites rotate between the current BCS bowls the Orange, Sugar, Rose and Fiesta or link the sites of the games to traditional conference affiliations. By linking sites to leagues Southeastern Conference teams could host games at the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans and Pac-12 and Big Ten teams could host games at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. But the logistical issues that come with not having the sites for the semifinals set in advance were too big a problem. Now it will be possible for Ohio State and Oregon to play a semifinal in Miami, the site of the Orange Bowl. How the teams will be selected also has been hotly debated; the current Bowl Championship Series uses a combination of polls and computer rankings. There are still major details to be worked out, such as who exactly makes up the selection committee, but college football will takea page from college basketball, which uses a committee of athletic directors and commissioners to pick the teams for its championship tournament. The 12-member BCS Presidential Oversight Committee meets Tuesday in Washington. The commissioners and Swarbrick all stressed that ultimately the decision lies with the presidents. And that they will have more than just one model to talk about at their meeting. But unless something unexpected happens in Washington, a playoff will take another step to becoming a reality.

Almost 30p ercent of those older than 75 years have some type of ARMD. It is the leadingc ause of blindness in patients older than 65 in the United States,Canada,England, Australia,and Scotland. The Age-Related Eye Disease Study released 10-year follow-upd ata indicating that nutritional supplementary treatment,smoking,and a ge are predictors of progression rates. Recent research in genetics has s hown that ARMD may be the most inheritable disease to date. If this p roves to be the case,we may have just been provided the opportunity to identify those patients who are most at risk for progression,even though they may still be withoutv isual symptoms. One commercially available g enetic test,Macula Risk,measures inheritable risk factors for ARMD. When the results are combined witho ther risk factors (such as smoking it can help determine a patients c hances for progression to more advanced stages of macular degeneration. T here are two types of ARMD: the dry form and the wet form. Both seem to always occur in patients o lder than 50. The dry form of ARMD is chara cterized by distorted vision and gradual loss of central vision; however,it may show no symptoms at all initially. Upon physical exam, the eye doctor may note degenera-t ive changes in the macular tissue such as hyaline deposits in the retina (macular drusenclumps of pigment,and atrophy of retinal tissue. The doctor will check your cent ral vision by having you look at a grid to determine if you have any distortion,or blank spots in your central field. They will also examine the back of the eye using vari-o us lenses to check for any evidence of blood or leakage. No proven treatment is available at this time; however,the use of oral nutritional supplements including antioxidants (vitamins A,C,and E) is proving tob e beneficial. Trace minerals such as selenium and zinc also seem to b e helpful. Some patients will benefit from low-vision aids,especially if they suffer from central visionl oss in both eyes. Patients suffering from the wet f orm of ARMD will complain of a blind spot in their central visual field or distortion of straight lines or edges with a rapid onset of vision loss. Macular drusen may beo bserved by the eye doctor,as well as new blood vessel growth (neov ascular membranes) beneath the retina. These new blood vessels tend to be very leaky leading toh emorrhages within the macula; however there does seem to be a d ecrease in progression of this form of macular degeneration in those patients taking the AREDS nutri-t ioinal supplementation. In patients who have wet ARMD in one eye,the risk of new blood v essel growth developing in the other eye is 10 percent-12 percent p er year. Eyes with multiple soft drusen are more at risk. Treatment for the wet form of ARMD may consist of laser treatment or newm edications (Avastin,Lucentis) that have proven valuable in treating n ew blood vessel growth. Your retinal specialist can tell you if you may be a candidate for one of these newer medications. It is possible for macular degene ration patients to reduce their risk of progression by ensuring that their d iet is high in omega-3 fatty acids, lutein,and zeaxanthin. These three dietary factors have a much bettere ffect in reducing overall risk of macular degeneration than vitamin C ,vitamin E,and beta-carotene. They protect the macula from light induced damage by increasing thep igment found in the macula. Recent findings indicate that increased macular pigment can lead t o better visual acuity,improved tolerance to glare,and improved cont rast sensitivity. Lutein and zeaxanthin are found in dark green leafy vegetables like collard greens,kale,and spinach,y ellow fruits and vegetables,and egg yolks. L ow levels of lutein and zeaxanthin in the diet may increase the risk of macular degeneration. Zinc is also an integral part of your diet, in that it controls inflammation byb oosting the bodys natural antioxidant function. Zinc alone can r educe the risk of macular degeneration progression by as much as 21 percent. I s true that more therapies than ever are available to patients who h ave macular degeneration. However,these people still live with decreased visual acuity and thea ssociated loss of independence that comes with it. It is for this reason,that a low-vision specialist m ay be called upon to help. They will discuss the patients specific g oals and exactly what he or she is willing (or not willing attain them. For example,a patient whose goal is to follow the stock markett ables in the paper will need a very different low vision device than the patient who just wants to see the T.V. more clearly. Being as specific as possible enables the low visions pecialist to streamline their evaluation to meet the patients needs successfully. It is important to remember that low vision aids will not repair orr estore lost vision to the patient. Their vision will be limited by the physical condition of the eye itself. No low vision device,surgery,eye drops,or contact lenses are going to ixtheir macular degeneration;h owever,low vision devices are designed to magnify what the p atient is trying to see at distance or at near. Some devices may increase contrast which will allow the patientt o use his remaining eyesight to see smaller things than he could see b efore. Ultimately,the best way to curtail your risk of developing ARMD to begin with,or at least to slow it down,is to do the following:take ag ood multivitamin every day,dont smoke,protect your eyes from the s un,and,if you can,try to eat at least four servings of dark green leafy vegetables (spinach,kale,b roccoli,etc.) every week,exercise regularly and reduce stress.

C M Y K WASHINGTON (AP The toxic side effects of an experimental cancer drug from Onyx Pharmaceuticals may outweigh its benefits for patients with a type of blood cancer, federal health regulators said Monday. The Food and Drug Administration warned that patients in a company study of the drug had a high rate of heart and lung side effects, some which were fatal. The FDAposted its review of carfilzomib online ahead of a meeting Wednesday, where its panel of cancer experts will recommend whether the drug should be approved. Despite the negative tone of the review, some analysts said they expect the FDAs panel of outside experts to take a more favorable view. StatePointProstate cancer is the most common non-skin cancer inA merica and the older you are, the more likely you are to be diagnosed with this serious disease. There is good news for t hose who want to take control of their risk, says Dan Zenka, Senior Vice Presidento f Communication at the Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF Recent research shows that eating right can help d ecrease the chance of developing prostate cancer, reduce the likelihood ofr ecurrence and slow the progression of the disease. H ere are 10 nutrition tips for men to stay healthy as they age: Avoid empty calories by eliminating junkf ood. Snack on fruits, vegetables and nuts instead. S wap out soda and opt for water or natural juices. Rely on herbs, spices a nd garlic for flavor, not sugar, salt and fat. While fat is a necessary component of a healthy diet, limit the amount you c onsume from red meat and dairy. Avocados, olives, nuts, seeds and tofu are healthy sources of fat. Trans fatty acids found in margarine,h owever, should be avoided. Avoid taking more than 1,500 mg of calcium per day. Skip the supplements and consume your cal-c ium from leafy green vegetables, beans and fish. Eat more fish. Evidence from several stud-i es suggests that fish can help protect against prostate cancer because they contain good fat, particularly omega-3 fatty acids. Alack of vegetables in the diet is a risk factor for aggressive prostate cancer. Vegetables in the broccolifamily are especially benefi-c ial. Use olive oil for cooking for a maximum health benefit. Avoid over-supplementation with megavitamins. Too many vitamins, especially folate, may fuel the cancer, and while a multivitamin is not likely to be harmful, if you follow a h ealthy diet with lots of fruits, vegetables, whole g rains, fish, and healthy oils, you likely wont even need am ultivitamin. Marinate meat and turn it frequently to prevent charring. Charred meat of any type can produce car-c inogens. Alternatively, get your protein from vegetarian sources. No matter how sound your diet is, regular exercisei s its perfect pair. Recent research has suggested that exercise may be one of the best natural antioxidants, eliminating inflammatory molecules that drive cancer. While eating well and exercising may make a difference in the long run, it doesnt always eliminate y our risk of having prostate cancer. Start talking to your d octor about your prostate health and remember to get ap rostate screening during your annual physical. While cutting out your favorite foods may seem tough at first, there are deli-c ious ways to enjoy foods that are good for you. For recipe ideas, visit www.pcf.org/nutrition. Nutrition and wellness go h and-in-hand. Taking control of what you put into your body is a great first step t oward reducing your risk for prostate cancer and other d angerous diseases.

A ssociated PressCHICAGO The American Medical Association on Wednesdayp ut its weight behind requiring yearly instruction aimed at preventing obesity for public schoolchildren and teens. T he nation's largest physicians group agreed to support legislation thatw ould require classes in causes, consequences and prevention of obesity forf irst through 12th graders. Doctors will be encouraged t o volunteer their time to help with that under the new policy adopted on thef inal day of the AMA's annual policymaking meeti ng. Another new policy adopted Wednesday says the AMAsupports the idea of taxing sugar-sweeteneds odas as one way to help pay for obesity-fighting p rograms. But the group stopped short of a fullfledged endorsement. Somed octors think soda taxes would disproportionately h urt the poor and disadvantaged. Others said taxes shouldn't be used to force people to make healthful decisions they should be making on their own. Doctors at the meeting s hared sobering statistics and personal stories in urging the AMAto sharpen its focus on obesity prevention. I can't tell you the number of 40-pound 1-year-olds I see every day," Dr.M elissa Garretson, a Stephensville, Texas pediatrician, told the delegatesb efore Wednesday's vote. She said requiring obesity e ducation "is a great idea." The measure was drafted by the AMA's Pennsylvaniad elegation. It cited data showing that more than 300 m illion people worldwide are obese and said requiring nutrition education to prevent obesity has never been proposed. O besity affects more than one-third of U.S. adults and a lmost one in five children, or more than 12 million kids. Recent evidence sug-g ests those numbers may have stabilized, but doctors s ay that's small consolation when so many people are still too fat.

D earPharmacist: I am suffering with Sjogrens syndrome, it makes my skin, eyes and mouth so terribly dry. Even sex isp ainful. Do you have any suggestions that may work for me? P.W., Santa Rosa, California A nswer: Sjogrens syndrome or SS mainly affects women and occurs,i n part, when white blood cells attack the moistureproducing glands. Thinkd rydry eyes and mouth, vaginal dryness, dry skin, j oint pain, persistent cough or harm to the kidneys, lungs, liver or GI tract cano ccur. Temporary relief comes f rom running humidifiers, taking medicine or using natural herbs. Prescriptions of either pilocarpine or Evoxac may help drye yes/mouth as can inexpensive artificial tear eye d rops. Immunosuppressant drugs calm a hyperactive immune system, in ana ttempt to balance a see saw immune system that is s everely tilted. The symptoms of SS are mediated by cytokines ( very mean compounds) driven by the NF-kappa B pathway, and excessive cytokines cause dryness, pain and inflammation.S ome of the cytokines are known as interleukins and abbreviated as ILand numbered as in IL-1, IL-13 and IL-4 and so forth int he literature. High TNF alpha and prostaglandins a re also part of the painful picture of autoimmuned ysregulation. Excessive amounts of this stuff causes unspeakable misery but I know ways to reduce these mean compounds.S oon, you will too. I realize this is complicated, but I insist you have some knowledge so you can research yourself andd iscuss my ideas with your physician. Ahealthy immune system rocks like a see-saw, and it remains in balance with its two T-helper armies (Th1 and Th2). With SS, its dynamic, it changes and sways this way and that way. Often the see-saw is tilted and the Th2 army dominates thus producing a boatload of those mean cytokines mentioned above. Other Th2 dominant c onditions include eczema, BPH, Graves, cancer, asthma, infections,f ibromyalgia, late Lymes, lupus and ulcerative colit is. Certain supplements can calm a Th2 dominant condition by strengtheningt he Th1 army (thats usually what you want with SS, b ut not always). Ask your physician for approval, and carefully note your response. If symptoms worsen, stop immediately. G reen tea or EGCG supplements: Reduces many i nterleukins including IL-1 (associated with skin calms inflammation ands ensitivity in your eyes and mouth. W ise Woman Herbals vaginal suppositories: They contain vitamin E, Aand t he soothing herb calendula. May relieve vaginal dryness. Omega 3 fish oils: Helps with dry eyes and mouth.R educes TNF alpha and prostaglandins. CoQ10 or Ubiquinol: Improves salivary flow. Herbal mouth rinses: G reat but avoid those containing alcohol or witch h azel, which may aggravate oral dryness. P rickly ash, slippery elm: Taken as tinctures or tea may stimulate saliva production. Be mindful that some w onderful supplements aggravate Th2 dominance by strengthening that army: Alfalfa, astragalus, echinacea, ginseng, goldenseal,a nd licorice root. If youre condition is Th1 dominant, then these are great. A blood test can determine Th1 vs. Th2 dominance.

What supplements help, what may hurt with autoimmune Dear Pharmacist Suzy Cohen By MICHAELFELBERBAUM APTobacco WriterRICHMOND, Va. Sometimes a cigar isnt just a cigar. From large hand-rolled cigars and smaller machinemade cigars to little cigars that are similar in size to cigarettes, there are nearly as many cigars as there are aficionados to enjoy them. And as federal regulators weigh standards for the entire industry, some in the cigar world are pushing to make sure their livelihoods and the products they enjoy dont go up in smoke. While the Food and Drug Administration has expressed its intention to regulate cigars under a 2009 law that gave it authority over the tobacco industry, it has yet to specify whats ahead as it ramps up efforts to curb the death and disease caused by tobacco. If its anything like the FDAs regulation of cigarettes and smokeless tobacco, that could mean banning certain flavors, requiring new health warnings, limiting the sizes and shapes of cigars, or imposing restrictions for marketing, advertising and retail sales. Cigars also may be restricted from being sold separately and the agency also could limit the amount of nicotine in the products. The premium cigar industry argues any number of the potential restrictions could hurt both cigar makers and specialty tobacco stores, whose products make up only a small fraction of tobacco sales, dont pose the same concerns as cigarettes, and the range of sizes and shapes of cigars makes across-theboard standards almost impossible. Even the House Appropriations Committee weighed in on issue in its report on the fiscal year 2013 Agriculture Appropriations bill on Tuesday, reminding the FDAthat premium cigars have unique characteristics and cost prohibitive price points and are not marketed to kids. Any effort to regulate cigars should take these items into consideration. If youre going to focus your efforts on regulating tobacco products to meet the spirit and intent of the Tobacco Control Act, where is best to spend those scarce resources on a tenth of a percent of the market or on a huge chunk of the market? asked Bill Spann, CEO of the International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers Association, an industry group representing more than 2,000 tobacco retailers and more than 350 cigar manufacturers, distributors and others. Cigar lovers to FDA: A cigar isnt just a cigar By BETH FOUHY Associated PressNEWYORK Aconservative womens group on Wednesday launched a$ 6 million ad campaign in presidential battleground states criticizing PresidentB arack Obamas health care reform law. The 60-second ad from C oncerned Women for America features a family p hysician, Ami Siems, warning that patients may be denied care under then ew law and might not be able to choose their own d octor. Siems previously appeared in ads criticizing the health care reform proposal sponsored by another conservativeg roup, Americans for Prosperity, in 2009 when t he plan was being considered by Congress. Everyone agreed we n eeded reforms, but this new health care law just i snt fixing things, Siems says. President Obama promised my patients that t hey could keep me. But what if because of this new law I cant keep them? The spot will run in top p residential battleground states including Iowa, New Hampshire, Virginia and Wisconsin.

We lived in a rural community,o utside a little town in Ohio on a small,rented farm on which we had all kinds of fruit and nut trees, three kinds of grapes,a large garden and all around us were berryb ushes galore. We raised chickens and had our own eggs. To a little boy,this was paradise Our Grimes golden apple tree had grape vines growing all thew ay to its top,and in the summer when the grapes were ripe,wed climb up the tree to pick and eatt he delicious purple grapes and see how far we could spit the skins. Every summer,my three siblings a nd I spent days picking blackberries for Mom to turn into jam and j elly. Each of us took two pails and tramped through briars to see who could fill them first. When oursw ere full,we helped the others to fill theirs. When we returned,our buckets (and stomachs) were full of berries,and our legs and arms were scratched from the thorns, and we loved it. W e gathered barrels full of nuts to store for the winter,and helped to pick and can what we gathered or grew. It was work,but it was also fun. M oney was scarce,so Dad worked at a local steel mill and wired houses on the side. We wasted nothing. Mom made clothing for my sisters from the pretty floweredb ags in which our chicken feed came. We were thankful for the hand-me-downs we wore,andw hen something wore out,it was not thrown away,but was kept and used to patch anything that wast orn or which had a hole in it. When something was needed,we d idnt go buy it. We built or grew or fixed whatever it was that was needed. When Dad needed a trailerf or his electrical supplies,he made a better trailer than you could buy out of spare parts and junk. If a neighbor needed something fixed,Dad fixed it. If they needed something he had,he gave it tot hem. Our neighbors were our friends and if someone needed help,we helped them. We played together,worked together,helped one another,paid our bills,met ouro bligations,did our jobs,respected one another and didnt really care about color,creed or religious dif-f erences. Kids werent black or white,they were kids. People werent black or white,Catholicso r Protestants,Republicans or Democrats. They were people. T hats the way we were raised and thats the way we lived. My mother and father did not c urse or swear and didnt allow us or others around us to use foul language. Nobody locked anything up. They didnt need to. There was a moral and ethical fiber in America that is rare today. People had selfr espect and they respected others. People didnt expect a hand out. They wanted a hand up. They didt want the government to give them money.They wanted a job.T hey didnt sit around feeling sorry for themselves. They did what they had to do to survive. And most of all,they were grateful for what they had. T he Scriptures teach that the first sign of a backsliding nation is an ungrateful heart. We live in an ation where too many think the world owes them a living,where people are content to live on wel-f are and government handouts,and refuse to try to find work. M any are expert at using and abusing the system. They use any excuse to demonstrate,loot ands teal,(i.e. the Occupmovement) rather than go to work. All too often,people want a paycheck and not a job. Children are born to those who do not want them but who want their welfare checks tob e bigger. Crime is on the rise because people have no respect for themselves or for others. I do not fault those who cannot work or who cannot find work. I dof ind fault with those who are just too lazy to work or to try to find a job. In the Bible,when the Children of Israel entered the promised land,if they wantedw ater,they dug a well. If they wanted grain,they planted it. God expected them to work for whatt hey got,and for that matter,he still does. Did you know that the New testament says that those whow ill not work should not be allowed to eat? F red Jeans is chaplain at Kenilworth Care and Rehabilitation Center.

Snapshots NEWORLEANS (AP The nations largest Protestant denomination has voted to adopt an alternativen ame for churches that feel the title Southern Baptist could be a turn-off to potential believers. Although the denominat ions name will officially remain Southern Baptist Convention, many delegates still opposed the optional Great Commission Baptists. T hose who supported the new name argued that it w ould help missionaries and new churches to reach more people. A n online poll by the SBCs Lifeway Research of 2 ,000 Americans found that 44 percent said that knowing a church was Southern Baptist would negatively impact their decision to visito r join. The term Great C ommission refers to Jesuss command to his apostles to go forth and make dis-c iples of all nations. Fifty-three percent of deleg ates voted in favor while 46 percent voted against.State, church dispute flares over Pa. child careHARRISBURG, Pa. (AP Abill that would relax the qualifications for employees at religiously affiliated childcare centers in Pennsylvania won the approval Tuesday oft he state Senate Education Committee as lawmakers waded into a dispute between the state government and the Roman Catholic Church. The bill passed 9-2, and the committee chairman, Sen. Jeffrey Piccola, R-Dauphin, called it an effort to firmlya nd clearly send a message to the Department of Public Welfare that it must back off regulatory language that church lobbyists worry couldb e used to encroach on religious freedom. Aside from easing education and training requirements for the facility staff anyone from a director to a1 6-year-old employee the bill also would transfer overs ight of religiously affiliated child care facilities to the Department of Education. A lobbyist representing the Pennsylvania Catholic C onference told committee members that the aim of the bill is to limit the authority of the Department of Public Welfare to impose rules thatd o not concern health and safety. T he lobbyist, Philip Murren, acknowledged that the department has note ncroached on religious liberties. B ut he said cease-anddesist orders from the welfare department are pendinga gainst 14 religiously affiliated child care facilities because they refuse to submit t o a licensing process that they believe involves rules o utside of health and safety concerns. ADepartment of Public Welfare spokeswoman said Tuesday that the administra-t ion of Gov. Tom Corbett supports religious freedom in school and child care curriculum. But the governor believes it is also important to ensure the health and safety of our children, spokeswoman Carey Miller wrote in ane mail. This is why we have health and safety regulations in place for the protection of our children in child care settings.D iocese of Orange settles clergy abuse case for $2 million on eve of trialS ANTAANA, Calif.

The settlement was reached a t 9:30 p.m. Monday after hours of negotiations, attorney Vince Finaldi said. It resolves a civil lawsuit filed by a 41-year-old deco-r ated Air Force combat pilot who alleged that former M onsignor Michael Harris molested him in 1986, when he was a student at Mater DeiC atholic High School and Harris was principal there. H arris has never been charged criminally and denies the allegations. His attorney,J ames Ingram, did not return a call from The Associated Press seeking comment. H e was part of a $5.2 million settlement in 2001 that t he Los Angeles and Orange dioceses made with another of his accusers, a former student at Santa Margarita Catholic High School, whereH arris worked after he left Mater Dei.

C M Y K www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, June 22, 2012Page 11B FAIRMONT CINEMA; 1.736"; 6"; Black; movie listings; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 0 0 7 7 5 5 2 2 By CHRISTY LEMIRE AP Movie CriticP ixar is long overdue for a feature with a strong female c haracter at its center. Now that shes arrived,its clear that she deserves better. Bravis beautiful to look at,as you would expect given the technical and artis-t ic standard the animation behemoth has set. Set in the wilds of Scotland,the comp ans 13th feature is full of lush,green forests and dram atic,rolling hills,all of which appears even more idyllic bathed in a delicate, mystical sunlight. Our heroine,the feisty and free-spirited Princess Merida (voiced by Kelly Macdonald),has a finely detailed mane of long,red c urls that look so bouncy and soft,thell make you want to roll around in them, t hen maybe take a little nap. And the story begins promisi ngly enough with our heroine an avid archer leaping onto her valiant steed and taking a thunderous ride through the countryside,expertly hitting her tar-g ets without missing a beat. Shes obviously a character with a mind of her own, one who has no apprehension about breaking the rules which is why its such a shame that the film itself feels so old-fashioned and safe. The script,credited to co-directors Mark Andrews and Brenda Chapman as well as Steve Purcell and Irene Mecchi,revisits several familiar Disney character types and themes:a princess in a long-ago kingdom who pays an ill-fated visit to aw itch,a spell that changes everything and needs to be b roken,and the misunderstandings and danger that e nsue. After beginning in thrilling fashion,Brav turns rather silly and slapsticky rather quickly,as if itw ere aimed mainly at the little kids in the audience rather than the whole family, for whom most Pixar movies are so satisfying and quite often moving. (Admit it:You sobbed uncontrollably at the beginning of Upand the end of Toy Story 3.We all did.) This time,the usual depth of story and welldeveloped characters simply arent there. Its a pleasant diversion but,comparatively,a disappointment. But Bravdoes boast a strong voice cast,including Billy Connolly and Emma Thompson as Meridas pare nts,the king and queen. Queen Elinor in particular is c oncerned with making sure her teenage daughter grows up to be a proper youngl ady,that she behaves the way a princess should and d oesnt go gallivanting about o n her own causing mischief; its bad enough that t he couples young triplet sons are constant troublemakers. And so shes insistent that Merida buckle down andp repare for marriage,even though its a huge leap the girl isnt ready to make and despite the fact that her three potential suitors from theo ther prominent clans are all doofuses. The fact that she shows these boys up in an archery competition humiliates and angers her mothere ven further. Sounds good so far. But then Bravbecomes a well-worn cautionary talea bout being careful of what you wish for,as a trip to see a toothless,whiskered old witch in a hidden cottage (voiced by Julie Walters)c hanges much more than Merida bargained for.We wont reveal the transformation here,but suffice it to say that its something more complicated than true lovs kiss can undo. The movie itself,however, never changes back to its original form. If Merida herself had been in charge,she probably would have wanted to shake things up a little more. DIVERSIONS Dear Abby: I have been happily married to my col-l ege sweetheart for 20 years. Markis a great husband,a good father,and we are very compatible. He is the kind of man whob rings me flowers for no reason,and whod rather be home cooking dinner with me than almost anywhere. I know he loves me and our children. R ecently,a woman called our house,identified hers elf as a friend,and told me Mark has been playing aroundall over town ands he thought I should know I was married to a perv ert.She hung up before I could comment. Mark swears he is not,and never has,had an affair. Of course,I believe the m an I have known for 25 years over a complete s tranger,but this has been very upsetting. I now question my decision to be as tay-at-home mom and wonder if someone may be o ut to get me. I have become nervous in crowds, fearful that someone isw atching me or us when were out together. Mark is trying to be there for me a nd says we will go to marriage counseling or whateve r I need. Abby,I am happy in my marriage. Yet I feel violated,depressed and resentful that a stranger has thep ower to make me question my own happiness. Can you help me? Sad Wife in New York Dear Wife: The prank you have described could have been perpetrated by ah igh school student dialing randomly,or a disgruntled p erson with a grudge against your husband or even you for some imagined slight. You feel violated b ecause you HAVE been. People can exercise power over us only if we allow it. You have a husband who loves you and a marriagem any people would envy. I dont think you need marriage counseling. However, some sessions with a mental health professional might be helpful in putting this unpleasant incident behind you. P.S. I assume this was a one-time thing. If the calls persist,the phone company and the police should be notified that youre being harassed. Dear Abby: My husband and I separated two yearsa go. For the past year,I have been dating one man e xclusively. Wehavea wonderful relationship that has great potential. Neverh ave there been two people with more in common. T here is one problem. I have no children and he has three. Two are adults responsible,good people. The youngest,Erik,is 18,a nd hes the problem. He dropped out of school, d oesnt work,refuses to even try to find a job and doesnt have a driversl icense. Erik has stolen money f rom me and also from his father to buy drugs and alcohol. Basically,the kidi s good for nothing. He doesnt even have any friends left. M y boyfriend realizes his sons problems,but has e ssentially given up on him. I cant blame him. It has reached the point whereI cant even stand to be around the kid. It doesntl ook like hell ever get a life and move on. Please tell me what to do. At A Loss in Nova Scotia Dear At A Loss: You and your boyfriend areo verdue for a frank discussion.

Movie Review Brave R ating: PG (some scary action and some rude humor) Running time: 93 minutes Review: (of 4 By DAVID GERMAIN A P Movie WriterWoody Allens o R ome with Lovbegan with better titles. Yet despite the exquisite locations of the filmmakers first story of love,Italian style,this bland ensembler omance deserves the generic name rather than t he clever working titles it started with. Allen initially called it Bop Decameron,then changed it to Nero F iddledbefore he and his distributor decided to slip in the name of the Eternal City. Hey,it helped to have t he City of Light mentioned in the title of last y ears Allen hit Midnight in Paris.So putting Rome in the name makesg ood marketing sense to hint that his latest continu es the trend of light romance in a beautiful Old World capital. U nfortunately,o Rome with Lovlives up or rather,lives down to the superficial postcard sentiment of its title. W eaving four stories of Italians and American visitors,the writer-director creates a lot of clever moments with his ensem-b le comedy that features Allens first on-screen appearance since 2006s Scoop.In between the good times,the story and characters just drift about awkwardly,stuck on aw alking tour of Rome that continually bumps up a gainst dead ends,or worse,circles back so we wind up seeing the same things a few times too many. I s hard to even pick out a highlight among the four stories. Parts of each story work quite well, while other portions justw eigh the scenarios down. The film almost comes down to how well the actors inhabit their roles. Allens known for giving his cast plenty of leeway. Alec Baldwin conveys a sense of wistful nostalgia as an architect seemingly strolling into his own memories of Italy in his youth. Baldwins a wry, omniscient commentator wafting in and out of a love triangle involving Jack (Jesse Eisenberg), Sally (Greta Gerwig her seductive pal Monica (Ellen Page). Gerwigs sadly cast as a flavorless third wheel,but Eisenberg and Page are so tentative and cold in their supposedly impetuous fling that they seem like neutered pups alongside old hound Baldwin. The ineffable magic that made Midnight in Parisclick eludes Allen here. When in Paris, Allens gimmicks coalesced into a sly,engaging romantic fantasy. When in Rome,though, its not Nero whos fiddling,but Allen,bopping and dithering around the city like a tourist so desperate to cram in all the sights that he comes away only with a few crisp highlights and a lot of out-of-focus snapshots. Rated R for some sexual references. Running time:112 minutes. Two stars out of four. Allens Rome delivers ho-hum love Associated PressUNIONDALE,N.Y. The Make-A-Wish Foundation grants a wish every 38 minutes. For 7-yearold Jonny Littman,it came the other evening when WWE superstar John Cena walked into the room. The chatty Jonny appeared nervous at first,turning his wheelchair to the wall,but Cena soon eased his nerves. After all,this time was special for Cena too and for those keeping score. It was the 300th wish granted by Cena,making him the most popular celebrity granter in Make-A-Wish history.To put it perspective,Michael Jordan has granted around 200 and Kobe Bryant is in the 100-wish range. I truly give hats off to Make-A-Wish for keeping statistics,Cena said. They had a nice little celebration for me at 200,and I humbly said we should do it at 1,000. re just getting started, he said enthusiastically. But Cena was clearly touched by the latest one. Im just flattered completely that I could be the wish,he said. Jonny,from Hop Bottom, Pa.,has severe congenital malformation and spina bifida. He spoke to his hero for a few minutes and took some pictures with him. He even put on his WWE Championship belt. His mother,Ruth,says his surgeons wore it during his last surgery. After signing T-shirts and WWE merchandise and presenting him with a videogame system,the superstar graciously walked out of the room. Cena prepared for his featured match,and Jonny and his family waited to go into the Nassau Coliseum for a live televised weekly show, Raw. WWE superstar John Cena grants record Make-A-Wish
C M Y K LIVING 12B PA GE News-Sun Friday, June 22, 2012 Are you still reeling from Rachel and Finns breakup on Glee? Maybeyoure suffering from severe New Girlor Communitywithdrawal.Well fear not television fanatics:Your favorite summer shows are starting back up again.Why would you ever go outside when you can catch your favorite programs on USA,AMC,HBO and other summer-centric networks?Grab a cool drink,find a comfortable spot on the couch and enjoy these sizzling summer shows:1.BREAKING BADPremieres 10 p.m.Friday,July 15 on AMC (all times ETTheres no such thing as a fair-weather Breaking Badfan. Ask peopleif its worth watching and responses will range from Its the best show on TVto Its the best show ever.Chalk that up to four sea-s ons of gripping storytelling and Bryan Cranston proving he can do just about anything. Going into its fifth and final season, you can expect more meth and mayhem from Cranstons Walt. New to the show is Friday Night Lightsalum Jesse Plemons, playing a working-class Joe who may be hiding something. Then again,who on Breaking Badisnt alittle shady? 2.THE NEWSROOMPremieres 10 p.m.Sunday, June 24 on HBONormally a project with a premise this simple a behind-the-scenes look at the machinations of a cable news network wouldnt warrant anything resembling the hype The Newsroomhas been getting. Then again,its not every day that Aaron Sorkin returns to television. The man has written for The West Wing,Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip,and even won a Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar for penning The Social Network.Throw in some recognizable faces likeJeff Daniels,Sam Waterston,Emily Mortimer and Olivia Munn,and The Newsroomappears to be destined for summer success. 3.TRUE BLOODAirs 9 p.m.Sundays,on HBOIf The Newsroomis where HBO viewers can go to get highbrowthis summer, rue Bloodis the perfect trashy counterbalance. Though the show has devolved into soap opera territory,theres something addicting about watching the residents of Bon Temps,La.,deal with the craziness that befalls them. Last seasons finale set up some intriguing scenarios,including the return of Russell Edgington (Denis OHare) and an alliance forming between Bill (Stephen Moyer) and Eric (Alexander Skarsgard). Season five should be a bloodtingling good time. 4.ALLING SKIESAirs 9 p.m.Sundays,on TNTThis show has no right to be as good as it is. Yet somehow the story of the aftermath of an alien invasion and the retaliation by a ragtag human army led by former college professor Tom Mason (Noah Wyle) just plain works. It makes sense when you realize the show is executive produced by none other than Steven Spielberg. Get ready for more alien-hunting action and look for Lostalum Terry OQuinn to show up later in the season. 5.URN NOTICEAirs 9 p.m.Thursdays,on USAWhats summer without a little heat? Take a trip to Miami to visit the Burn Notice gang and see what theve been up to since last season. Dont expect life to get any easier for Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan) and his group of semi-spies. Look out for returning villain Anson Fullerton (Jere Burns) and guest appearances from Scrubsalum John C. McGinley,Taryn Manning and William Mapathor. 6.FUTURAMAPremieres 10 p.m.Wednesday,June 20 on Comedy CentralGood news:Futuramais back for its second post-resurrection season on Comedy Central. There is no group of animated misfits on television more entertaining than the Planet Express crew,and now you can catch up with all of their sci-fi shenanigans. Not much is known about the new season,but with episode titles like Decision 3012and The Thief of Baghdad,its a solid bet that Fry,Leela and Bender will get themselves into plenty of intergalactic trouble. BY JOSH AXELROD/MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE7.LOUIEPremieres 10:30 p.m.Thursday, June 28 on FXLouis C.K. is a sick man,but he also happens to be one of the funniest comedians around. He does everything on this show writing,directing,editing,starring,etc. Its no wonder Louie,which is a combination of sketches and stand-up,feels so unique in todays television landscape. Get ready to laugh,cry and feel uncomfortable all at the same time. 8.REALITY SHOWS GALORETimes and networks varyWith each new season comes a new crop of reality shows for Americas viewing pleasure. This summer includes ABCs Duets(featuring the likes of John Legend and Kelly Clarkson),a new season of FOs So You Think You Can Danceand Hells Kitchen, CBSBig Brother,and NBCs Americas Got Talent(now featuring Howard Stern). Most intriguingly,MTVs Snooki and JWowwwill supposedly feature sober and maternal versions of the two Jersey Shorestars. Now thats must-see TV. 9.PRETTY LITTLE LIARSAirs 8 p.m.Tuesdays,on ABC FamilyThis one is for the ladies. Pretty Little Liarsis back with more twists and turns and,you guessed it,lies. Last season ended with the identity of a mysterious texter who seemed to know the deepest secrets of a clique of teenage girls being revealed. Whats in store this season for the residents of Rosewood? Youll have to watch and find out.10.THE LEGEND OF KORRAAirs 11 a.m.Saturdays,on NickelodeonDont write this off as a kids show.As any fan of Avatar:The Last Airbenderwill tell you,the world of elemental bending and political corruption is mature beyond the years of the average Nickelodeon viewer. The new series is a follow-up set 70 years after the events of Avatar.Korra is the new Avatar,living in the steampunkinspired Republic City and trying to quell an anti-bending revolution. The action is intense and the humor is always chuckleinducing. A lazy summer afternoon watching Korrais an afternoon well spent. I LLUSTRATION BY CHRIS W ARE/LEXINGTON HERALD-LEADER/MCT
