C M Y K B y SAMANTHA GHOLAR firstname.lastname@example.org SEBRING Elections usually dont get much closer than the one between Cary Pigman and Randy Johnson. T he heated District 55 State House of Representatives Republican primary will be decided by less than three dozen votes. Dr. Pigman won Highlands County ( 4,643 votes to 3,463) but Johnson won the other three counties in the district O keechobee,St. Lucie and Glades. If a race falls within the guidelines of a totald ifference that is one-half of one percent of the ballots cast,then it becomes and automatic recount,Supervisor of Elections Joe Campbell explained Thursday. Usually when its a differ-e nce of 60 votes,that falls within the guidelines. Their race came down to 30 votes. Pigman is in the lead,but that could change after the recount. T he recount must be directed by the state. Campbell and his office are unable to proceed with the recount until the directive is issued by the state. Thell probably give that directive By SAMANTHA GHOLAR s email@example.comSEBRING A fter the tragic vehicle accident involving his step-daughter,18year-old Miranda Ming,last week, P earce,his wife Sherry and countless others are flooded with memories of their beloved Miranda. The accident brought on a dramatic turn of events that Pearceh as called indescribable. Ming was traveling home on Orange Blossom Boulevard On Aug. 5 when her Jeep ran off the road and overturned. M ing was transported to Longwood Medical Center in critic al condition and was pronounced dead a short time later. She wast hen transported to the University of Miami Hospital to be prepped for organ donor surgery. But after more intensive testing, Miami Hospital doctors discoveredb rain activity deep within the brain stem and contacted Mings family. Ming was kept on a respirator for a week and further testing was done before she was pro-n ounced dead a second time at 10:55 p.m. Sunday. e lost her and began mourning. We got her back and of course we prayed,prayed,prayed and then we lost her again,Pearce said. Mings family and friends k ept hope and faith and were waiting on a miracle,he said. e all had to lose her a few times. Its been very trying for the Mings and for us. Ming was a person who cared deeply about people,the environm ent and the world. A true outdoorsy girl,she enjoyed fishing, four-wheeling,swimming and boating. Mings biggest passion, however,was photography.

The research space is in the original ticket box office. It is small,but there are built-in bookcases with plenty more room,and a desk on one wall for making notes. Naming the archives after Riedy was a natural idea,longtime HLT actor,director and producer Pete Pollard told the group of more than two dozen. Riedys own archive forms the heart of the collection, Pollard said. He had been an integral part of HLs history right from the beginning in 1974,acting in 11 plays and directing or co-directing three. Over the years Riedy,who taught drama at Sebring High School and wrote reviews of HLT productions for the News-Sun,collected programs and press clippings. He had complete cast and crew lists for virtually every production,and put this information together in a three-volume work, which,while lacking a narrative,is filled with interesting facts. Pollard said,His archive is the start of our archive.The plan is to expand the collection. For example, in the near future videos of some productions will be available for viewing. Donations of HLT-related material will be gratefully accepted. The archives are open to the public, but only HLT members may check items out. Please call in advance. The 2012 seasons final production will open Friday Aug. 24. The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Beeis a musical comedy about six overachieving teens as they cope with the pressures of a major spelling contest. The show has quirkcharacters,a funny story and a jubilant score. It runs until Sept. 9. For more information,go to www.highlandslittletheatre.org or call 382-2525.

C M Y K W hen Lance Cpl. Niall Coti-Sears decided to join the United States Marine C orps,he was emulating a hero. He wanted to follow in his grandfathers footsteps, Lance Cpl. Coti-Sears mother,Susan Coti,told The Unknown Soldiers. N ialls grandfather,Col. William Coti (Ret.served in the Marines for more than 30 years. Before two tours in Vietnam,he fought in the bloody 1950 Battle of Chosin Reservoir one oft he Korean Was defining struggles. The heroes who c lashed with Communist Chinese forces for 17 days in freezing conditions are known as The Chosin Few. Niall,who was homes chooled by his grandparents for two years,spent many hours learning in their basement,which his parents said resembles a Marine Corpsm useum. While Col. Coti never told his grandson to join the military,young Niall would often put on old uniforms and pretend he was in combat. One time I said,Niall, the gun jammed and the enemy is getting close,what are you going to do?Col. Coti recalled. He picked up a grenade and threw it. One day,Niall decided to become a Marine. Poppy,I want to be like y ou,he said. When the teenager told his p arents,both feared for his safety. My initial reaction was that I was completely against it,Nialls father,Paul Sears,s aid. Not because of the Marines Corps or the military,but because of the way the world is today. But when the aspiring A rlington,Va.,warrior paid a visit to his father in Baltimore,Paul could see the focus in his sons eyes. I was 100 percent behind him,the Marines father, who now lives in Arizona, said. Still,both parents hoped Niall could avoid Afghanistan or Iraqs front l ines. e begged him not to choose infantry,Nialls m other said. We said,you could do anything; why w ould you want to go to Afghanistan as an infantryman? But thats exactly the path Niall,who grew up hearingh is grandfathers war stories, chose. He was just ... a really fearless guy,Susan said. I believe that he needed to be part of something that was a lot larger than hew as,Paul said. Before leaving for A fghanistan,Niall spoke to fourth-graders at the Washington,D.C.,school where his mom teaches. One of the boys asked h im if he was afraid,Susan said. He said no ... he really believed it was something he needed to do.

When was the last time he ment ioned the Republican-controlled House of Representatives that are blocking every move president Obama tries to make that could help the people of this country? Never! Romney is complaining that Obama i s not doing anything to get us out of the huge debt the Republicans put us in with their war in Iraq. Iraq War Facts: 4,487 U.S. soldiers killed, 32,223 seriously wounded. The total cost for wars in Iraq, Afghanistan is at least $3.4 trillion. This includes items such as interest that has to be paid on the funds borrowed to finance the wars and a potent ial nearly $1 trillion in extra spending to care for veterans returning from combat through 2050. Thats the multi trillion dollar debt Bush and his fellow Republicans ran up and were burdened with today. Romney is now blaming Obama for it, and the bobble heads just keep nodding that they agree. When the Washington Post last m onth published an article headlined Romneys Bain Capital invested in companies that moved jobs overseas the Romney campaign was caught flatfooted. The Post found that Romneys firm, Bain Capital, had not only shipped jobs overseas but had pio-n eered the practice. The Boston Globe reported that Romney had signed official documents stating that he is president and CEO of Bain Capital as late as 2002, when the company was actively building up firms that outsourced American jobs. Here are just two of the many transactions that were made by Bain Capital, one with Dade Behring in 1999 and another with KB Toys in 2001. In both cases, Bain Capitals involvement forced the companies to file for bankruptcy and layoff thousands of workers. Bain is the primary source of Romneys wealth, which is estimated to be more than $250 million. How can a multimillionaire, like Romney, relate to someone who works for an hourly wage? On the flip side, how can an individual who works for an hourly wage relate to a multimillionaire like Romney? Romney blames Obama for the jobless rate now at 8.3 percent but doesnt mention the fact that in November, 2008 when there was another Republican in the White House, the unemployment rate rose to 11.8 percent, its highest level in over 14 years, up 645,000 from September to October, and by 2.3 million for the year of 2008. To find the real Mitt Romney check out the Boston Globe, July 12, 2012. Sandy Oleesky SebringSchool board inaction shockingEditor: Two important items were brought up at the first school board meeting, Aug 2, which were not acted upon. First, Roberta Peck, a retired educator and candidate for superintendent, asked that a motion be made to get middle and high school teachers and kids off the treadmill of two required tests recorded per week. Roberta Peck asked board members to imagine what is involved in recording two test grades per week for160 students. She presented the math: 160 students times 2, times the minutes to grade and post a test. Mrs. Peck said that with imagination it would be easy to understand whyb oring low-level multiple choice quizzes were common. She said teachers could test at greater depth if one test per week was the requirement. Mrs. Peck said the present required t wo tests per week was a local school board decision, made during the last decade, which cant be blamed on the state or Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test. She said it was a zero cost solution, which would get kids and teachers off the relentless treadmill of low-level testing, allowing for tests at a higher cognitive level. No school board action was made to this common sense solution. Asecond disturbing non-response was given to the excessive absences of Superintendent Wally Cox. William Hutchinson presented Wally Coxs record of having missed nearly 100 Fridays during Coxs last term in office. Hutchinson said he paid the nearly $200 at the county office for photocopies of Coxs daily working agenda for the last elected term in office. Hutchinson said the 97 absences did not include paid vacation and holiday time or meetings outside the county. The records were right there, with Cox present but saying nothing; no further investigation needed to be made. Someone on the board should have motioned to impeach Cox. It is extremely disturbing that regarding both of these important issues, which ultimately will affect every teacher and child in the county, nothing was done. Josh Everhart Lake PlacidVoters should re-address term limitsEditor: After reading the profiles of the candidates for Florida House District 55, I had to comment on something the profile overlooked. Florida voters overwhelmingly approve of term limits for elected officials. Four terms, eight years for members of the Florida House of Representatives. Randy Johnson was in the Florida House for eight years in another area of the state. He then moves to Highlands County to run for a different house seat being vacated by Representative Denise G rimsley. When the voters approved term limits, I doubt they thought for one second t hat cynical politicians would move from district to district to thwart the will of the people. It is evident that it may be easier keeping roaches out of the kitchen than slick politicians out of the tax money trough. It is clear that voters need to readdress term limits to leave no wiggle room for the kind of people that make us want term limits in the first place. D.B. Orr Avon ParkCorruption and coverups in Avon Park? Editor: Julian Deleon, the city manager of Avon Park, has been trying since early 2011 to get rid of the Avon Park Police Department. Ever since Michael Rowan was the police chief, Deleon has been protecting the city council from being investigated by the police department. First he forced out Michael Rowan, and now this year he forced out Public Safety Director John King. It is obvious that Julian Deleon had a lot of self interest here. The city council hired him to be city manager as a reward. Julian Deleon did get rewarded for keeping the city council from being investigated. (Asix-figure salary to boot). Now to permanently cover up any wrong doings that may have occurred in Avon Park. Deleon has effectively eliminated the police department of Avon Park. This decision should have been made by the taxpaying residents of Avon Park and not by a man out for revenge. The closing of APPD should be shelved and the matter placed on the ballot for the taxpayers to decide. Aformal investigation into the Avon Park City Council and City Manager Julian Deleon should be conducted. This cover up is almost as bad as the Penn State Jerry Sandusky saga. Julian Deleon should be placed on administrative leave without pay until the real truth comes out in this case. Alan Lewis Avon Park A mong other things, coalfired power plants account for 75 percent of Floridas mercury air pollution. Much of that mercury ends up ins urface waters, where it can contaminate fish which, when eaten, can create publich ealth problems. The good news is that the state of Florida has a goal ofr educing mercury emissions b y 86 percent. The bad news is that state regulators dont really have a plan to achieve that reduction. Eighty-six percent is a large reduction when youre looking globally, TrinaV ielhauer, deputy director for the DEPs division of environmental assessment andr estoration, told the Sarasota Herald Tribune recently. Certainly were expectingF lorida sources to do what they can to meet that goal. Being a regulation-averse state, officials will likely rely on voluntary reduction meas-u res on the utility industrys part. That wont be good enough. But in that regard there is more good-bad news. The good news is that n ewly adopted EPAmercury and air toxic standards will require utilities to reduceh armful emissions by 75 percent from 2010 levels beginning in 2015. T he bad news is that members of Congress, including Floridas U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, are trying to repeal those tougher federal stan-d ards. Why representatives of the nations sixth most toxic state would want to ease up on anti-pollution measures is am ystery. Certainly there is nothing about Floridas regulatory history to indicate that the state will act in the absence of an EPAmandate. Floridians deserve more p rotection than that. This is n o time to let up. The toxic state of Florida The Natural Resources Defense Council released a list of the oxic 20 states for power plant pollution. Florida came in at No. 6 on the most toxic list. The Declaration of Independence states that all men are created equal. The Constitution is d evoted to the ideal of equality before the law. The structure of our nationi s built upon this ideal. Americans learned that t hey did not have to remain equal. Those who put that k nowledge into effect made America the great nation that it is today. E qual opportunity, equal rights before the law and e qual shares in the election of our representatives all principles that we have come to look upon as inherent rights. M any of us strive to make this concept a working reality. Others do nothing about it whatsoever. Assuming that we are created equal, do we remain equal? Is the uned-u cated person equal to the educated? Is the unskilled e qual to the skilled in earning power? Is the untrained person equal to the trained? The answer is obvious. Our government has d one its best to afford every citizen an equal opportunity for education and training the very tools that open doors, opportuni-t ies and gaps between those, who by nature, are not greatly different. The government can provide every conceivable means today for selfimprovement, but government cannot legislate initiative brains, desire, determination, ambition or any of the human qualities that are necessary for improved citizenry! The most that can be legislated is the establishment of doors of opportunity. The individual who missed a golden opportunity and finds himself below standard need not remain in this category. He is deficient by choice. He need only look around at the opportunities for training that will lead him into a skilled job, higher education that willl ead him to a better life. All kinds of training and e ducation opportunities in our own communities. Jobs may be scarce here, but ani ndividual must be willing to move to jobs. Too many people seem t o be waiting for something that is not likely w ithin the next five or 10 years in this area. There is financial aid to those who want to further their education or training in this areaa nd almost everywhere. He or she only need to look around. There are no barriers today. The only obstacle is desire. The individual who takes advantage of these oppor-t unities can become qualified to take an equal place i n our economic and political society. Too many able-bodied people swelling our unemployment and welfare rollsw aiting until the recession/depression passes. They are claiming the fruits of the government; guaranteed incomes such asu nemployment, food stamps, governmental programs. Perhaps many or most of these people could be or may be required to attend schools or programs so that they can compete better in the current or future employment conditions. In the final analysis, the person who is not doing the very best that he can, or taking advantage of all the opportunities open to him, then he is Deficient by Choice.

She had planned to take up photography full-time in a few years. She looked at her grandmother and gave her a thumbs-up the other day and said Ive got a plan, said Pearce. M ing lived on her own but visited her parents daily and had grown extremely close to both Pearce and her mother Sherry in the last year. I pray for her peace above all suffering. Its so d ifficult. Shes expecting that knock on the door every day and its not goingt o come, Pearce said of Sherry. B ecause of Mings death, however, many individuals will be able to continue on with their own lives, including a 13-year-old girlw ho received Mings heart. God works on his own t imeline and sometimes he chooses not to intervene for His own reasons. It may beb ecause the child that received her heart may go o n to do something that Gods will needed to be done. You never know.S ome day well look back and have all the answers, s aid Pearce. The Pearces and Mings f ather, J.D. Ming, had the option of meeting the patient who received their daughters heart, but opted not to. M ings other major organs also went to pedia tric patients and because of Mings decision to also donate her bone marrow,h undreds of lives will be saved according to Miami d octors. Making that call (organ donation) at the time ofd eath is not something I think anybody would do. I d ont think you could look at your baby girl or your boy and say Yes. I want to donate his organs.Youre so grief-stricken you canti magine anybody touching your child, Pearce said. s a decision that you have to talk about with your family in advance. Itsa decision you need to take to heart. You dont want to leave that burden on your family. Ming was nearing her 1 9th birthday on Sept. 5, a fact Pearce found hard to believe. The night I got the call I was on e-Bay looking at cameras for her birthday. Ic ant believe the time passed so fast. She was on l oan to us by God. She valued life of any shape or size. She wanted her life toh ave real meaning, and it will, Pearce said.

(AP hes never paid less than 13 percent of his income in taxes during the past decade. Romney told reporters Thursday in South C arolina that Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reids claim that Romney paid no taxes in some years is, quote, totally false. Reid had claimed it was possible Romney was refusing to release more than two years of returns was because Romney didnt want to reveal that he had paid no taxes. Romney said: Every year Ive paid at least 13 percent. H e says hes also given generously to charity and that, including those contributions, hes given up more than 20 percent of his income each year. Romney has released his 2010 tax return and says hell release his 2011 return before the Nov. 6 election. Romney says hes paid taxes every year By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY c email@example.comLAKE PLACID Three o f Lake Placids lakes Clay, McCoy and June were chosen by then Gov. Charlie Crist to receive grants for water reclamation.T hey are among the 64 Florida lakes judged the most in environmental decline and in need of urgent attention Work on Lake Clay has b een under way for months, although a utility pole is causing delays because its tands right at the spot where three storm drains converge and has to be moved. T he issues in Lake Placid are largely due to direct road a nd roof runoff into the lakes. For example, Lake Clay is inundated with oily water-c arried debris from the Tower Plaza parking lot, as well as T ower Road and U.S. 27. Among other improvements, French drains are being added for water absorption and percolation. T he county appeared before the town council M onday asking for its support in keeping the five-year work program moving. S upport can come in different forms, the council was t old. For example, the town paid no money into the Lake Clay project, but was instrum ental in gaining the needed easements. Councilor Debbie Worley passionately argued about the need to clean up the lakes.S he said she was one of the people who attained the easements for Lake Clay. W ork on Lake June is scheduled to begin early next year. W orley mentioned that the Lake Clay project came in u nder budget, saving $45,000. She hoped the Southwest Florida Water Management District would apply those savings towardt he 25 percent matching portion of the Lake June grant, w hich will come to $110,000 for Lake June. The $45,000 would go a long way in meet-i ng the matching requirement, Worley said. C lell Ford is the county lakes manager and is in charge the projects. He e xplained to the News-Sun that grant money is not transferred from one project to another. Instead it goes back into a general fund. T he Lake June project is already budgeted in full and would proceed as planned, he s aid. The leftover funds from Lake Clay would be used later on another lake. C ouncilor Steve Bustard called the Lake June project a very worthy project. He mentioned how U.S. 27 flooded when drains got blocked in the area of the railroad overpass, and howt he water became a serious danger. Its like a flume r ide, he said. He wanted to find practical ways of showing support. C ouncilor Ray Royce was somewhat more cautious. He w ondered exactly what support entailed. Id just like see it in writing, he said. M embers of the council expressed some impatience with the state Department of Transportation. The FDOTis largely responsible for runoffi nto the lake, and yet contributes nothing, Bastardi said. Lake projects in Lake Placid continue N ews-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY Lake Placid Councilor Steve Bastardi talks about the danger of flooding on U. S. 27. Its a flume ride, he said.

Continued from page 1A State House Republicn primary election going down to the wire SAN FRANCISCO (AP Facebooks stock plunged to a new low Thursday after the expiration of a ban that had prevented some early investors and insiders from dumping millions of additional shares they own in the social-networking leader. Firms ranging from Accel Partners to Goldman Sachs, Zynga CEO Mark Pincus and Facebook board members James Breyer, Peter Thiel and Reid Hoffman were among those free to sell stock they own, after the lifting of a ban known as a lock-up period. If many of them took advantage of that, Facebooks stock could decline because the market would be flooded with nearly two-thirds more shares. Its not yet known whether any of those investors had sold any stock because they have three business days to disclose any sales, said Sam Hamadeh, the CEO of PrivCo, which researches privately held companies. But many of them likely did, he said. lot of people have been waiting, Hamadeh said. Facebook was expected to go public a long time ago. Venture capitalists who invested in Facebook as early as 2005 were likely itching to sell at the earliest opportunity. Though its trading at about half of its IPO price, Hamadeh said Facebooks stock is still very expensive. ith VCs, they know that waiting for a better price is a fools game, he said. Thursday was only the first of several lock-up expiration dates for Facebooks stock. The biggest one is coming in the fall. Only 271 million shares became eligible for trading Thursday, but by the time all the lockups expire, thatll come to 1.91 billion. Facebook stock price hits new low as IPO lock-up ends

C M Y K I had the opportunity to fish with my son Chris the other day. He enjoys fishing and we get out whenever he has time. With a wife and three kids, a house to take care of and a full-time job, not to mention that he lives two hours away in Jupiter, his opportunities to go fishing with his old man have been few and far between. So, last Sunday morning we went out to Lake Glenada, knowing wed probably get rained out by noon, to do a little flippin for bass. With no wind, high humidity and temperatures at 9 a.m. already soaring past 80 degrees, it didnt take long for both of us to break out ina heavy sweat as we flipped the reeds on the northwest side of the lake. It didnt take long before I landed a nice two-pounder, followed within moments bya slightly bigger two-pounder that Chris flipped into the boat. Ahhhhhhh, competition, an American tradition! The action slowed and we moved to another section of the lake, an area that had produced well for me in the past. Two more bass, one each, back-to-back and then nothing. We fished through the entire area with Chris moving ahead with a small 8-inch bass that when he set the hook, the bass actually flew out of the water and across the boat, landing in the water behind us. OK, technically, that put Chris ahead. Moving to our third and final spot on the eastern shoreline, Chris connected with another 2 1/2 pounder. With three in the boat, to my two, I realized time was running out. Storm clouds were gathering and moving in on us quickly. If I was going to beat Chris on this trip, I needed to do it soon. As the first few drops fell, I saw my line jump, then move sideways, and as I set the hook, a nice 5-pound bass broke the surface. I looked over at Chris and he just shook his head. As we hurried back to the boat ramp, I had to rub it in that the old man was still the best fisherman! I have a nice, small lake behind my house in Golf Hammock, so we brought th e fish home, showed them off to everyone, got a couple pictures and released them into the lake. My son has two daughters, Kate and Kayla, which meansI have two grand-daughters. They both love to fish, but on this particularly hot day, they decided to stay home with mom and grandma and spend the day swimming. My youngest grandchild, Connor, didnt seem too impressed when we held up one of the bass for him to get a good look at. At 9-months old, hes probably a bit shy of having any real interest in fishing. Jokingly, I told Connor when he turns 16 and gets his drivers license, Grandpa would give him his Chevy truck and Ranger Comanche. As I said it, I realized the truck would be over 20-years old and the Ranger, real close to 20. I was also kind of shocked to think in 16 years Id be almost 80. Now thats something to think about. Fishing has changed a lot since I was a kid. My brothers and I loved sports; baseball, basketball and football, but we also loved to fish and hunt. My fathers passion for the outdoors was passed on to our generation, and, like his father and his fathers father, SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, August 17, 2012 Page 3B Fishin Around Don Norton Fathers, Sons and Grandsons News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE From left, the 2012 Sebring varsity volleyball team, Meghan Lollis, Paige Lewis, Hannah Lollis, Lindsey Whittington, Maci Harris, Allie Mann, Ansley Selander, Jordan Hinkle, Hannah Tucker, Caylin Webb and Bella Caraballo. Special to the News-SunAVON PARK The Highlands Youth Football and Cheer Organization (HYFC began their second season on Saturday, August 11. HYFC is part of the Police Athletic League (PAL)A ssociation Sunshine C onference. The Highlands Eagles football teams and cheerleaders have been working hard since practice began on July 9, at the Highlands County Sports Complex. Coaches are very pleased w ith the progress the teams and cheerleaders have made. Teams have really come together, relationships have formed and the coaches are expecting good things to come during the season. The Highlands Eagles hosted the Kick-Off Classic game at the Avon Park High School football field to take on the Auburndale Hounds. The anticipation of getting t o play in the jamboree game was finally here. Coaches have been getting their game strategies together and player hopes were high. Full games with each team playing four quarters of ball were scheduled for the day. The first team to take the field was the Flag team ages5 and 6-years old coached by h ead coach Steve Remes. The offense took the field with pride. With a strong offensive drive, the Eagles quickly took control of the game, scoring at will. The defense made their p resence known and stood strong, only allowing the Hounds one score for the day. It was a very exciting game with the Eagles getting their first win of the season and the day with a score of 21-6. Next to take the field was the Mighty Might team ages 7, 8 and 9 coached by head coach, Justin Jackson. The Eagles took the field with pride and quickly domi-n ated the field with first-time player and quarterback Graisin Wheelock completing his first pass to Anthony Henderson for a 12-yard gain. Running back Taivion Coston broke free for a 40yard run to the end zone, only to be called back for penalties, but went on to score anothert ouchdown later in the game. F ullback Alex Pollard was like a hammer running the ball up the middle, along with Garza and Coston, earning key yards for the offense. On the defensive side of the ball, Ronnie Roberts made several key tackles with teamm ates Garza and Caleb Reed getting sacks to shut down the Hounds defense taking the second win of the day with a score of 21-0. Next up was the Pee Wee team ages 10 and 11 coached by head coach Tim Hooks were eager and ready to take the field. In the first offensive drive of the game, Kasey Hawthorne broke free to score a 56-yard touchdown andk icking the extra point. The defense took the field with the Hounds to quickly shut down the offensive efforts with key tackles by linebacker Austin Oppold and defensive tackle Giovanni Andino. The Eagles offense dominated the game with additiona l scores made in the game by Kevin Rivera and Hawthorne to bring them the third win of the day with a final score of 28-0. Following the Pee Wee game, the Junior Varsity team ages 12 and 13 lead by head coach Cliff Howell took the field with the Hounds. The game got off to a great start with an offensive drive with Akem JnPierre on a 35yard run to be brought down just outside the five-yard line, quarterback CJ Harris ran the ball in for the first touchdown of the day to take an early lead of 7-0.

See EAGLES, Page 3B By DAN HOEHNE d email@example.comSEBRING Anew season will often see a lot of new faces, especially in the wake of losing seven players to graduation from a volleyball roster. And yet, even with what would be a seeming overhaul, a lot of familiar faces will be taking the court for the Lady Blue Streaks this season. Thats the thing, we lost a lot of players, but a lot of these girls coming back got a lot of playing time last season, head coach Venessa Sinness said. So there is still a lot of experience coming back. Coming back from a district runner up spot and a trip to the playoffs makes that experience invaluable as the team also works in a number of talented, though younger players, as well. The back line will be anchored by returnees Allie Mann and Jordan Hinkle, while blending in sophomore Hannah Tucker and freshmen Ansley Selander and Maci Harris. e should be strong defensively in the back, Alli and Jordan are very good and get to everything, Sinness said. Up front, Sebring returns some experience and size, with senior Meghan Lollis and junior Bella Carabello looking to be forces at the net. The duo will also be backed by some added length and athleticism of senior Paige Lewis and sophomores Hannah Lollis and Caylin Webb. Though, even with a strong defense and imposing front line, it all revolves around the setter, and the Lady Streaks wont be lacking there. Junior Lindsey Whittington split time at the spot last season and has taken the reins this season from day one. s got great hands and will do a great job setting up our hitters, Sinness said. And with her height and jumping ability, she can attack from that position as well. Taking over such a key role on the team, full-time, might be daunting to some, but Whittington doesnt see it that way. Surprisingly, I havent had the teeniest bit of butterflies, she said. Ive been anxiously waiting for this time to come. Im very excited to take on the fulltime setter role. Im ready for people to see what Im capable of. Just the kind of attitude and leadership one would want to see out of the position. Another key is knowing the teammates, where they like the ball and what each are capable of. Somewhat of a coach on the floor, and Whittington sees things from that perspective. The team this year is very versatile, she said. e all have the ability to bump, set and hit the ball. Theres also an immense amount of chemistry with all of us, which is key to a great team.

The Eagles will be hosting the game at their home field at the Avon Park High School against Auburndale. Games will begin at 9 a.m. and admission is $4 for adults and $3 for children. Come on out to support the Highlands Youth Football and Cheer program. Continued from 1B Courtesy photo D.J. Taylor gets around the corner on his way to a score in the JV teams 44-0 win Saturday. Eagles take flight in Kick-Off Classic this year, the schedule of foes is familiar as is what to expect. inter Haven really didnt lose too much so they will still be strong, Sinness said. Lake Gibson played us pretty well last year and are improving. They had a new coach last year and are getting better. Kathleen will always be a basketball school, mostly, but theyre athletic and wont be easy. But I expect us to be challenging for one of the top two spots again Sebring swept both Gibson and Kathleen in last seasons district slate, but were also swept by Winter Haven in their meetings. But with each new year, while much can seem familiar, there will always be change. Continued from 1B we all have an obligation to pass on our love of fishing to our sons and daughters, as well as their children. But I wonder what the next 20 years will bring to the fishing world. Children today seem to be obsessed with cell phones, IPads and computers. Both my granddaughters are constantly texting their friends and receiving texts all day long. Stopping by the mall the other day, I couldnt help notice the half dozen teens and tweens standing just outside the door, each with their own phone texting away the day. Life will certainly be different in 20 years. I just hope all the reality television and the texting craze, or whatever comes next, doesnt get in the way of actually living your life and getting out on the lake occasionally and catching some fish. If it does, us 80and 90year olds may have the lakes to ourselves. Don Norton is a professional tournament bass fisherman, bass fishing guide, and custom rod builder.

How can I help myself now? G.H.,Decatur,Illinois Answer: I commend you for y our enthusiastic quest for wellness. After writing this column 14 years,one point I cannot stress enough:Inflammation is THE primary underlying factorc ontributing to cardiometabolic risk. When I say inflammation Im not referring to swollen fingers,I mean full body (systemic inflammation. Think of it as af ire driving up your insulin (bad messing your hormone balance ( bad),increasing pain-causing compounds called cytokines (badf bloodf low to your major organs,like the brain and heart. H ealth care today emphasizes medications to treat symptoms of heart disease,rather than trying to put the fire out. One example is with cholesterol reducingd rugs. Fine by me,but medication alone doesnt put out your s moldering systemic fire. Same thing with insulin resistance,detected easily in a bloodt est. Take all the blood sugar reducing medications you want t o,they wont put out the fire (inflammation. This is covered entirely in my DiabetesW ithout Drugsbook,where I help you avoid becoming a number junkie,a person who chases d own numbers with medications. The assumption is that it equals g ood health! It doesnt. To adequately reduce your r isks,I recommend proper diagnostic testing first. The way we m easure blood pressure is wrong. The British are ahead of us,they do 24-hour monitoring as standard procedure. Thats excellent because one office pressure wontt ell you whats going on centrally,in the brain and heart,it only m easures peripheral pressure. You never want your CRP to go over 3 mcg/ml because thisb locks the angiotensin II receptor,cranking out enormous a mounts of oxidative stress (think fire). The B vitamins reduce CRP so a B-complex is a good idea. A dditionally,consider potassium,3 to 5 grams per day (absolutely ask your doctor P hysicians sometimes prescribe beta blockers. As a general rule t hey dont do anyone a favor,and are known to increase diabetes by a bout 5 percent a year. More simple stuff:Vitamin B6 i s a natural calcium channel blocker,mild diuretic and it improves insulin resistance.A wesome,considering its $10 a month if you take 100-200 mg per day.Also alpha lipoic acid, a bout 200 mg three times daily. It improves endothelial dysfunction, a nd insulin resistance; used with Acetyl L-carnitine,its a one-two p unch. Youll need a little biotin on board to prevent depletion f rom the alpha lipoic acid. My suggestions are intended to shine a flashlight of hope. I hate when people are told Lets wait and see.Wait for what? A hearta ttack? If you like how I think, its because I attend medical semi nars offered by the Institute for Functional Medicine.

If making excuses for not exercisingw as an Olympic sport,there would be a lot more ordin ary people with medals. No time, m y joints/back hurt, too hot,too old,too boring are just a few of the most popular excuses. A ll of us are more rushed. Recess is gone from schools; smart phones and the internet let us take work home. The American College of Sports Medicine recommends 30m inutes of moderately intense (enough to work up a l ight sweat on a warm day) exercise per day. Exercise can be broken up into shorter sessions,maybe 10 minutes each for three times perd ay. Early morning is the time least likely to be lost to other responsibilities. Early evening walks are goods tress relievers after a long day. A short walk at lunch will make your afternoon more productive and allow your brain an opportunity to reenergize. Housework, dancing and even sports on your Wii all count. Contrary to popular belief exercise decreases pain in aching joints. Strengthening the muscle around a joint will decrease the pain from wear and tear of arthritis. Scientific studies have shown that Yoga,with its muscle stretching,helps myofascial pain syndrome and joint flexibility. Tai Chi has some of the same advantages and also helps balance by strengthening your core. Back pain decreases withi mprovements in cardiovascular fitness. W ater exercises are both cool,and f or painful joints are a good place to start an exercise program. The warm water t his time of year in the lakes and pools will help the pain and add buoyancy so body weight does not stress your knees and hips as much as walking on land. You can walk in thew ater,swim,or join one of the many water exercise c lasses. No one is too old to exercise. Nursing homes are beginning to use the Wii to allow wheelchair bound resi-d ents to get a work out. Exercise has been shown to improve memory. The American Heart Association studied walkinga nd found that if you walk as fast as you can,even if it is slow,there is a definite cardiac benefit. There are numerous studies that show memory and mood are improved with exercises. oo boringis a popular reason most people stop exercising. Try walking witha friend or listening to a book or music on your ipod. Try ballroom or belly dancing. Put your exercycle or treadmill in front of the television. Play a game with your kids or grandkids. Go canoeing on one of our many rivers. Take advantage of the classes at the YMCA or one of the many gyms that have trainers who can help you get started. The best exercise is one you enjoy.You want to expend your energy on the activity not into making yourself do it. So get moving. Dr. Diana D.

Classified ads get results! Call 314-9876 By JAMIE STENGLE Associated PressD ALLAS Heres another reason to know your blood type it might be a clue to your risk of heart disease. P eople who have blood types A,B,or AB havea slightly higher risk of heart disease compared to those with type O,the most common kind,according tor esearch released Tuesday. Those who know they a re at higher risk may be more motivated to make changes to lower theirc hances of heart disease, said Dr. Lu Qi,senior a uthor of the study from Harvard School of Public Health in Boston. e cannot change blood type but we canc hange lifestyle,said Qi, who led a study released l ast year that showed blood type may affect stroke risk. The new study involved a bout 90,000 men and women in two observationa l health studies that cover more than 20 years. Combined,4,070 people d eveloped heart disease. The researchers considered age and other factors like d iet,drinking,family history of heart attacks that c ould contribute to heart disease. The increased risk for type A was 8 percent; type B,11 percent; and typeA B,20 percent. While the study did not examine how blood type may affect heart disease risk,it noted that research has shown some characteristics of different typesm ay be a factor. For instance,some research s uggests that blood types might affect cholesterol levels or the risk of developing blood clots. The findings were published in the AmericanH eart Association journal Arteriosclerosis, Thrombosis and Vascular Biology. A doctor not involved in t he study cautioned that the increased risk for non-O blood types is modest,and that other risk factors like smoking have a bigger impact. Most of things that are this modest,most of the t ime they dont meaningfully change how youd think about your risk over-a ll,said Dr. Amit Khera, director of the Preventive C ardiology Program at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. This shouldnt cause m uch alarm for most of the population,he added. N o matter what blood type,Harvards Qi said everyone should pay atten-t ion to risk factors they can change,including smoking, w eight,high cholesterol, high blood pressure and a sedentary lifestyle. T ype O is the most common blood type,followed by A,B and AB. About 45 p ercent of whites,51 percent of blacks,57 percent o f Hispanics and 40 percent of Asians have blood type O,according to the American Red Cross. Type A:40 percent of w hites,26 percent of blacks,31 percent of Hispanics and 28 percent of Asians. Type B:11 percent of whites,19 percent of blacks,10 percent ofH ispanics and 25 percent of Asians. T ype AB:4 percent of white and blacks,2 percent of Hispanics and 7 percent of Asians. Blood type might be a clue to heart disease risk

C M Y K Associated PressThe Silversun Pickups want Republican Mitt Romneys presidential campaign to immediately stop the use of the rock groups song Panic Switch. And the Romney campaign has no problem with that. The Los Angeles-based bands attorney sent a cease and desist letter to Romney on Wednesday. Anews release says neither the band nor its representatives were contacted for permission to use the 2009 alternative rock hit and the group has no intention of endorsing the Romney campaign. e dont like people going behind our backs, using our music without asking, and we dont like the Romney campaign, Silversun Pickups lead singer Brian Aubert said in the statement. Were nice, approachable people. We wont bite. Unless youre Mitt Romney! We were very close to just letting this go because the irony was too good. While he is inadvertently playing a song that describes his whole campaign, we doubt that Panic Switchreally sends the message he intends. Romney spokeswoman Andrea Saul said in an email that the song was inadvertently played during the setup for one event. As anyone who attends Gov. Romneys events knows, this is not a song we would have played intentionally, she wrote. That said, it was covered under the campaigns regular blanket license, but we will not play it again. Saul says the campaign has licensing agreements with BMI and ASCAP. Silversun Pickups publicist Ken Weinstein says the groups attorney doesnt agree that the songs use is covered. The band, its management and attorney declined comment, but did supply a copy of its letter to Mr. Romney As the former governor (of Massachusetts, a graduate of Harvard Law School, and candidate for U.S. President, were pretty sure youre familiar with the laws of this great country of ours, it reads in part. Associated PressNEWYORK Ajudge should toss out a lawsuit by a national atheists group seeking to stop the display of a cross-shaped steel beam found among the wreckage of the World Trade Center, lawyers for the operators of the Sept. 11 memorial at ground zero say. The lawyers said in papers filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan on Monday that the 17-foot-tall beam will be displayed as a historical object because it tells part of the story of the rescue and recovery effort after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, which destroyed the twin towers and killed thousands of people. The nonprofit group American Atheists sued the National September 11 Memorial & Museums operators last year, saying the beams display would be unconstitutional. Amessage left with a lawyer for the group was not immediately returned Wednesday. Lawyers for the memorial operators said in their papers that the steel beam, found by rescue workers two days after the terror attacks, was an inspiration. They said workers took solace in its symbolism as they searched for survivors and found mostly victims. The lawyers noted that the museum is an independent non-profit corporation. By CAROLE FELDMAN Associated PressDont wait until the power goes out to start thinking, Wheres the flashlight? Power outages are becoming a fact of life around the country, at any time of year. Recent years have seen an umber of strong storms and hurricanes knock out power to suburban and rural homes for days at a time. And blackouts also can be causedb y accidents or short-circuits. Heres a refresher on how t o be ready:What to haveJames A. Judge II, a member of the American RedC rossScientific Advisory Council and executive d irector of Lake EMS, Inc. in Mount Dora, Fla., recommends putting emergency suppliesi nto a plastic storage bin a nd slipping it under your bed. Thatw ay, he said, youll always k now where to look. He also suggests p utting emergency supplies in an old suitcase with wheels. If you have to evacu ate, you have your kit on wheels, he said. T hink about your basic needs when outfitting the kit. Food and water. Judge recommends storing 1 gallono f water per day per person and keeping a two-week supply. He said water will keep for about six months if not exposed to heat. He also advises keeping unscented bleach on hand in case youh ave to chlorinate the water. Stock up on non-perisha ble, easy-to-prepare foods for the same period of time: cans of fish, meat, fruits, vegetables and soups, as well as canned or boxed milka nd juice. Remember to have a hand-operated (not electric) can opener, said Kit Selzer, a senior editor at Better Homes and Gardens. Y ou might also want a food thermometer to check the temperature of food in the refrigerator to see if its safe to eat. Flashlights and extra batteries. Check the batteries every few months, Judge advises. Emergency preparedness experts advise against using candles because of the fire risk. Medication: Put a weeks supply of medication i n your emergency kit; you may need it if youre evacuated. Dont forget a first aid kit, as well. Personal papers: In c ase of evacuation or damage to your property, its helpful to have copies of important papers like birth certificates or insurance policies with you. Miscellaneous: Dont f orget cell phone chargers, which you can use if you f ind a neighbor, library, coffee shop or other spot that has power and lets you plug in. Car chargers also can be helpful if you have to evacu-a te. Keep some cash on hand; ATMs need power, too, and you wont be able to withdraw funds from them if the bank also has been hit byt he power outage. And to keep up with whats going on, Judge recommends a battery-operated radio and perhaps a NOAAweather radio, both with batteries. Amultipurpose tool also might be handy.What to doTurn off and unplug appliances, computers, televisions and other electrical e quipment so they wont be damaged by any p ower surges that might occur while p ower is being restored. Avoid opening the r efrigerator or freezer. Generally, food in the refrigerator will stay cold e nough for four hours, while food in the freezer will r emain frozen for 48 hours in a packed freezer or 24 hours in one thats half full. If its in the middle of winter, consider burying food int he snow or putting it in the car to keep it cold. Foods like eggs, mayonnaise, leftovers and soft cheeses are among the fastest to spoil, Selzer says. If you have food exposed t o temperatures above 40 degrees or more it might not b e safe to eat, Judge said. Use your thermometer to check. Also, make sure you have gas in your car. You wont bea ble to fill up if gas stations are affected by the blackout. Increasing numbers of people fed up with repeated power outages are purchas-i ng generators. Generators come in all sizes and shapes, Judge said. Some may be sufficient to run the refrigerator, some can run multiple appliances. But they must be used properly. Agenerator should never be run inside a home, garage, crawl space or basement, Judge said, because of the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.

One said to the other, I cant standm y mother in law. The other responded, Then juste at the potatoes. I am certain that all of us, a t one time or another, have encountered someone thatg rates on us; someone who just rubs us the wrong way, but unlike our cannibal friends, we frequently cant just eat the potatoes. Sometimes the only option we have is to get along witht hese people. I recall several years ago officiating a wedding for two of my parishioners. The mother of the bride was one of those people. She was arrogant, condescending, nasty, hateful, mean, narcis-s istic, self centered etc., and those were her good qualit ies. No matter what her daughter wanted, she wanted something else. She contradicted everyone. She was a constant source of arguing, confusion and hard feelings. She even tried to get me to change the way I conducted the exchanging of vows. On the day of the wedd ing, the bride was ready. The church was ready. The c ongregation was ready, and I was standing outside of the s anctuary, looking out the w indow into the parking lot. The time to begin came and went, but I did not give the sign to begin. I just stood looking out of the window. Soon Polly Personality (the mother of the bride came storming up the stairs to where I was standing, and in her usual sweetheart man-n er, stood tapping her foot, g laring at me. The things she said will never appear on the top of the list of things to say to make friends and influence people, and shef inally said in an icy voice, t you think we should start? Soon, I answered and w ent back to looking out the w indow. Somewhat exasperated, she turned on her heels and stomped down the stairs,o nly to return a few minutes later to resume her foot tapp ing and glaring. What is wrong with you? C ant you tell time? Its time to start the service. And w hats so darned important out there that you keep staring out the window? sheb lurted. Now God will have to forg ive me, but I really enjoy helping this type of person eat crow, and this woman,w ell, I could have fed her a buzzard. I stepped aside and p ulled back the curtain, motioning for her to come a nd look. I must tell you that I almost burst out laughing a s the look on her face went f rom blind fury to red faced embarrassment. Out in the parking lot, her son-in-law was unloading the equipment that he would need to video the service and to take pictures. He was the reason fort he delay, and she was the one who insisted that he do t his job. She swallowed hard, whirled around and headed down the stairs, and as I recall, she wasnt stompingq uite as loudly as before. She never did apologize for h er rudeness, the wedding w ent off without a hitch, an d I prayed for the groom that God would keep him from strangling his new mother i n law. As I said before, all of u s from time to time encounter people like this, and whats even worse, sometimes we are people like this. None o f u s are perfect. All of us make mistakes. All of us have hurt others, sometime s intentionally. And like Polly Personality, we often justify o ur rudeness and meanness a nd dont ask for forgiven ess. Sometimes, saying Im sorry can turn enemi e s into friends. Apologizing can m end broken friendships, avoid conflict, heal broken hearts. Stupid pride keeps us from apologizing, and the B ible says that pride goes before a fall. When you are wrong, apologize, even if i t d oesnt heal the relationshi p Sometimes an apology is in order even when you are not w rong, and besides, apolog izing is always better than eating crow. The next time you find yourself embarrassed by your foot sticking out of your mouth, swallow yourp ride and apologize, becaus e when you do so, you are ine ffect saying I love you and care about you. Its easy. Just say Im sorry Fred Jeans is chaplain at Kenilworth Care & Rehabilitation Center.

C M Y K By JUSTIN LOWE The Hollywood ReporterC apping off the summer box office with explosive action, The Expendables 2 offers the send-off that adrenaline junkies are seek-i ng before the more sedate pace of fall releases. As he proved with the original installment, Sylvester Stallone grasps the actionoriented DNAof the filmsb adass cast of reprobate mercenaries with an intuition d erived from dozens of genre roles. Without wasting any time o n setup, the sequel finds Barney Ross (Stallone h is team of hard-bitten mercenaries on a clandestine mission to extract a kidnapped Chinese billionaire in Nepal, where they discov-e r that someone has gotten there before them Trench ( Arnold Schwarzenegger), another operative for their contractor, Mr. Church( Bruce Willis). Freeing Trench and the billionaire f rom their captors, the team returns to the States, where Church confronts Barneyw ith an unpleasant reminder: The Expendablesleader owes Church $5 million in c onfiscated cash from a previous job. But he is prepared t o make a deal if Barney takes on a new assignment. The catch is that he will need to place Churchs operative on his team, Chineset ech expert Maggie (Yu Nan). Since the Expendables are an all-male crew, the addition of a woman almost immediately throws group dynamics out of kilter. Their assignment is to retrieve anu ndisclosed item from a high-tech electronic safe a board a downed plane that has crashed in Albania. Although new team member and Afghanistan vet Billy (Liam Hemsworthe xpert sniper, reluctantly tells Barney that this is his last outing, the rest of the Expendables relish another mission, including second-i n-command Lee Christmas (Jason Statham members Gunner Jensen (Dolph LundgrenToll Road (Randy Couture Caesar (Terry Crews). As soon as Maggie has decoded the safe aboard the crashed plane and extracted the contents, the Expendables are ambushed by an Eastern European crime cartel led by the sadistic Vilain (Jean-Claude Van Damme), who forces Barney to turn over the device from the safe and then kills a key team member. Maggie later reveals that the item stolen by Vilain is a miniature computer containing the location of a five-ton cache of pluton ium that the Russians stashed in an abandoned mine during the Cold War. M otivated as much by revenge as their realigned m ission to prevent Vilain from selling the weaponsgrade nuclear material to a l ist of willing buyers, the Expendables take off in pursuit of their adversaries, with Barneys directive uppermost in their minds: Track them,f ind them, kill them. While most of the original films action transpired in Latin America, Expendables2 relocates to Bulgaria, w hich offers appropriately expansive vistas and credible l ocations for the Eastern European settings. Takingo ver directing duties from Stallone, Simon West preserves the hardboiled action and wisecracking cast dynamics of the original,c hanneling some of the Bmovie tonal elements he might have picked up directing Con Air. Managing the complexity of stunts, aircrafta nd vehicle pileups and frequent shootouts that comprise the majority of the running time is a major challenge that West executes with elan, even adding unexpected grace notes to some otherwise routine scenes. Abetted by cinematographer and action-adventure specialist Shelly Johnson, whose camera placement and movement are spot-on, the action choreography never disappoints. Numerous gunfights, combat set pieces and fight scenes are muscularly staged and skillfully supported by Todd E. Millers editing, though the sheer sound volume grows repetitive and wearying. With such an expansive cast, theres a risk that the quality of performances might be diluted by the quantity of recognizablea ctors. But co-screenwriter Richard Wenk and Stallone h ave generously given both major players and cameo actors their own often quite humorous character traits and dialogue. W hen Schwarzenegger is onscreen, much of the banter is at the former California governors expense though, much as ever, heg ets some memorable lines himself. Working with a fairly routine action-adventure scenario, the filmmakers can leave the cast to adequately fill out their roles. Since many of the leads have wellknown personas from past films and franchises, performances are a blend of action-hero impassivity and sendups of familiar characters. Stallone anchors the cast with a sometimes nuanced interpretation of Barneys mix of personal and professional demons and plays it straight as a foil to Stathams put-upon sidekick. Alate scene with Van D ammes suitably sadistic villain shows that Stallones still got the charisma toc arry an intimately staged fight sequence. Lundgren g ets great comic mileage out of Gunners lunkheaded character, while Couture and C rews hold down the stalwart combat veterans shtick. Despite key roles, Hemsworth and Yu donta dd much to the ensemble, and Chuck Norris as Booker and Jet Li as Yin Yang appear too briefly to make much impact. M any might wonder about Schwarzeneggers return to a ction movies and might be pleased that the brief role ofT rench is a perfect fit, adorned with some of the best dialogue in the script. While hes every bit as creaky as the other vets hisa ge, relying more on very large weapons and cutting humor than unarmed combat, Schwarzenegger still can steal a scene, particular-l y in the final set piece where hes paired with Willis, who relies more on smirking threats than decisive action until the final reel. Pyrotechnic and special effects credits are superior on a reasonable budget, and though the soundtrack would have benefited from a higher ratio of contemporary hits to familiar classics, Brian Tylers score carries the action without overwhelming it. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, August 17, 2012Page 9B FAIRMONT CINEMA; 1.736"; 6"; Black; movie listings; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 2 2 5 5 0 0 8 8 DIVERSIONS DearAbby: Im a male who has graduated from high school and isa bout to start college in another state. Im ready for a new challenge. The onlyt hing holding me back is a romantic attraction I have toward oneo f my high school teachers. He and I are best friends, but I love him more than asa friend. I have bought him many meals and gifts since h e taught me, and I have found every opportunity available to be with him.I m not sure if hes aware of my feelings, although I w onder whether I unconsciously make myself obvious. Regardless, we have a great relationship. It kills me inside to know I cann ever be with him. I have never told anyone h ow I feel, and I know if I ever told him, it would destroy everything we have.I cant forget about him. Hes on my mind constantl y. Having to leave him soon is killing me. Do you have any advice f or me? Dreading It in Louisiana DearDreading It: Yes. Go away to college ando pen yourself to new experiences and relationships. Correspond with this special person, and when you return for school breaks,c ontinue the friendship. Your feelings may or may n ot be reciprocated, but it is important that you let somet ime years elapse before trying to pursue anything closer with him. If you dont wait, it could be damaging to his career. DearAbby: Last Saturday, two days before my 75th birthday, I did something very uncharacter-i stic of me. I went to a tattoo parlor 25 miles away and had a flower put on my right buttock. I dont intend to tell anyone. It was my birthday present to myself. This was not a spur-ofthe-moment impulse. I have told my husband many times that if I made it to 75,I might celebrate it with a tattoo. He just laughed it off. No one in our family has one, and in the past, I have been critical of them. But this one does not show. Now I have to find a way to tell my husband. He has an explosivet emper that goes on and on, and he never drops an issue ever. I need advice, and soon.H elp me, will you? Sitting on a Secret D earSitting on a Secret: How do you know you are the first in yourf amily to get a tattoo? If someone else also got one i n a place that doesnt show, would they have told you after you told everyone youd idnt like tattoos? You cant hide this from y our husband forever, so dont try. If he reacts badly, remind him that the buttock with the flower belongs to you and that at 75, youre ab ig girl who didnt need anyone elses consent. N ow its time to give yourself another birthday present: Refuse to listen toy our husban's verbal abuse, and youll be much happier. DearAbby: What are you supposed to do when y ou are sitting in a salon having your hair cut and styled, and the next appointment shows up early and engages your stylist in non-s top conversation? My wife says this happens often in beauty parlors and I should suck it up. I wanted the stylists fulla ttention so I could get a good haircut. Shes not c heap. Am I right? What would you do? Perplexed in California DearPerplexed: For the stylist to carry on an ongoing conversation with the next customer was unpro-f essional. If it happened to me, I would take my stylist aside and explain my feelings. For the next customer to m onopolize the stylists attention was rude.

Movie Review The Expendables 2 Rating: R (strong bloody violence throughout) Running time: 102 minutes Expendables 2 engaging and fleet-footed fun By LYNN ELBER APTelevision WriterLOS ANGELES Michael J. Fox is planning a return to series TV, more than a decade after he left to concentrate on fighting Parkinsons disease. The actor, who first gained fame in the 1980s sitcom Family Ties and later headlined Spin City, will star in a comedy thats in development at Sony Pictures Television for 2013, according to people with knowledge of the project. The people, who lacked authority to publicly discuss the matter, spoke Wednesday on condition of anonymity. The project has drawn strong interest from the major networks, they said. The actors publicist did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Sony declined comment. Fox, 51, who starred in the hit Back to the Future movie franchise, is working with Will Gluck, director of the film Easy A, and writer Sam Laybourne, whose credits include Cougar Town and Arrested Development, the people said. The actor, who was diagnosed with Parkinsons disease in 1991, left Spin City in 2000 and said he intended to focus on helping find a cure for the disease. He started a foundation, which bears his name, to fund research toward that goal. Although he reduced his workload because of Parkinsons, Fox has made guest appearances on TV series including Rescue Me, Curb Your Enthusiasm and The Good Wife. In May, Fox told ABC News that a new drug regimen has helped him control the tics that are a result of the disease and allowed him to take on more acting roles. AP source: Michael J.

C M Y K LIVING 10B PA GE News-Sun Friday, August 17, 2012 Turning bagel s andwiches into funny faces adds punch to packed lunches. SANDWICH SAVVYIf you think lunch isnt lunch unless theres a sandwich involved, maybe its time to rethink what youre putting between two slices of bread. (In fact,maybe its time to rethink the two slices of bread altogether.) Cook shared some ideas that have been hits in her house,and tips that shes heard over the years from readers of FamilyFun magaz ine: Cream cheese with slices of cucumber,or cream cheese with tomato slices and fresh chives,wrapped in a tortilla. (An insulated cold pack will keep the cream cheese fresh until lunchtime.) Chicken salad,spruced up with sliced almonds or halved grapes. BLT on whole-grain bread. Bacon may not seem like healthy l unchtime fare,but if it gets a kid to eat veggies and whole grains,go f or it. Bagel sandwiches,turned into funny faces with strategically arranged vegetables. Pita stuffed with hummus. Sandwich on a stick chunks of meat,cheese and veggies, threaded kabob-style on a drinking straw. Peanut butter with jelly or honey. For allergy-free kids,the old classic is still a good choice. Use a shaped cookie cutter to up the fun factor. Assemble-your-own subs. Sometimes,the novelty of arranging m eat,cheese and condiments on a roll is enough to get a child to eat it. Plus,its less work for you. If your kid begs for prepackaged Lunchables,try Momables a make-your-own version,with crackers,cheese and meat cut into bite-size pieces.S UPERFOODS FOR SUPER KIDSKids need lots of fuel to get through long,busy school days. And because lunch is their major chance to refuel,its a good idea to send f oods that pack a serious nutritional punch. FamilyFuns Cook notes tha t lunch periods are short at most schools,and because lunch often is combined with recess,kids are in a hurry to eat so they can hit the playground. She advocates packing lots of small containers of food,rather than always trying to plan the meal around a main dish.Some sugges t ions: Blueberries,a good source of antioxidants. Serve them plain or in muffins. Low-sugar yogurt,to boost kids digestive and immune systems. B ecause so many varieties contain lots of sugar,Cook suggests plain yogurt mixed with honey. Nuts and nut butters,for calcium and protein. (Even if your kid doesnt have food allergies,be sure to check on the schools nut policy.) Orange vegetables and citrus fruits,which are great sources of vitamin C. Black beans,chickpeas or other beans,for protein and iron. If your kid b alks at a bowl of plain beans,try hummus or bean d ip,or add the beans to a cheese quesadilla. Pumpkin or sunflower seeds. Mix some with nuts, and throw in a few chocolate chips or M&Ms for a kid-friendly nutrition-loaded trail mix. Whole-grain bread,for the complex carbohydrates. If your kid turns up his nose at grainy bread,try a few brands to find one he approves. Some companies now make whole-grain bread that masquerades as plain-old white. Turkey,which is high in protein and relatively low in fat.BETTER BUYINGSchools are adding healthier options to their cafeteria menus,though for a young child,choosing the best options can be tough. Whether you r kid buys lunch every day or just occasionally,pediatrician and KidsHealth.org medical editor Dr. Mary Gavin suggests urging him to: Choose whole-grain bread for sandwiches and skip high-fat,high-calorie condiments like mayonnaise. Choose burgers (plain,with lettuce and tomato and without high-fat toppings) instead of hot dogs or chicken nuggets. Eat at least one vegetable or a salad (and go easy on the dressing Drink water or low-fat milk.SWEET TREATSGavin and Cook both say that its OK to include something sweet in your kids lunch, as long as you choose wisely. Here are their tips when it comes to picking a dessert: From-scratch muffins,cookies,bars and snack cakes are good choices,because you know what goes into them,and can choose health ier recipes. When possible,make healthy substitutions,like whole wheat flour. Pack fruit slices with peanut butter or low-fat yogurt for dipping. Low-fat pudding is also a good choice. Watch portion sizes. If youre packing a store-bought treat,check the fat and calorie content,and consider splitting portions,Gavin says. (One cupcake in a two-cake pack is probably plenty,for example.) For a treat thats small,but novel and fun,Cook suggests packing a rasmore a graham cracker,a marshmallow and a Hershes kiss.Back to school means back to lunch. Heres a look at what to packnce upon a time,school lunch meant a slapped-together peanut butter and jelly sandwich,an apple and a few cookies crammed in a brown paper bag. Not anymore. Now,when the lunch bell rings,kids dig into chicken noodle soup,pasta and sushi,carefully packed in insulated boxes and bags. Not that theres anything wrong with the classic sandwich-fruit-dessert combo,but todays active kids need nutrition-packed food to get them through busy school days. (Besides,if your kid is one of many with food allergies or attends a nut-free school you can forget the standard PB&J.) And if youre trying to pack something a bit more original than cold cuts between bread,a plain old paper bag probably wont get the food from home to school unscathed. But even for parents with the best of intentions,the daily routine of packing a lunch can be a bit of a chore after a few months,not to mention a few years (and a few kids). Deanna F. Cook,director of creative development for FamilyFun and WonderTime magazines and the mother of a firstand a fifth-grader,says every parent ends up in a rut from time to time,packing the same lunch every day. The more options in your lunchtime arsenal,the better. So we scoured the Internet,asked a few experts and came up with some tips to make brown-bagging more satisfying for kids,and the adults who feed them. S MALL BITE:Just because you dont love the idea of cold pizza doesnt mean your kid doesnt. Dont get trapped by the convention of hot food versus cold food. Sure,quesadillas,pizza and pasta are usually eaten hot,but your kid might be just as happy eating them cold. SMALL BITE:If youre worried that your kid is throwing out most of his lunch in the cafeteria,try getting her involved in making it,Cook says. Ask her questions about what she likes best and what other kids eat that looks good. Then have her help with the shopping and planning. SMALL BITE:Save small condiment packets from restaurants, takeout meals or supermarket prepared-food counters. Sometimes,a squirt of mustard,soy sauce,honey or mayonnaise adds a bit of punch to lunch,and kids love the novelty of tiny things.Citrus fruits are a great source of vitamin C. N ICK KOON/ORANGE COUNTY REGISTERInstead of white bread,use wholegrain bread for sand wiches.V A L B M I N A / M C C L A T C H Y N E W S P A P E R S
