C M Y K F or Christy Meador, T hursday night is bowling n ight. Not only is the sport a b eloved hobby but her favorite Columbia, S.C., b owling alley is also where s he met her future husband, Sgt. John David Meador II, known to most as J.D. He also had a nickname of Maverickbecause my favorite movie is Top Gun, Sgt. Meadors wife, C hristy Meador, told The Unknown Soldiers. He l ooked a lot like Maverick. After meeting in 2002, Christy and her Tom Cruise look-alike, who was working part-time as a bartender at the bowling alley, fell in love. But no matter where married life took the couple, they never missed league games with friends on Thursday nights. e would always bowl, Christy said. He could bring a smile to everyone. In October 2010 the month of J.D. and Christys birthdays the ex-bartender stood up on a chair and announced to the entire alley that his wife was pregnant. He said, my wife just told me we got the best birthday present ever Christy recalled. He told them I was expecting. Eight months earlier, J.D. made another huge announcement. After previously serving in the Army, he was re-joining the military as a member of the South Carolina Army National Guard. There was no discussion, Christy said. It was just ... Im going. On June 27, 2011, Elana Meador was born. Now I look back, and it was just so meant to be, Christy said while starting to cry. Because I dont know where I would be today had we not had (Elana When J.D. deployed to Afghanistan, his wife knew being alone with their little girl would be a challenge. But like thousands of military spouses across America, Christy came through for her soldier. All I could do was support him, she said. J.D. came home on leave i n April, which gave him the chance to share unforgett able moments with loved ones, including his older daughter. The highlight was finally spending time with baby Elana. He got to see her, hold her and talk to her, Christy said. When the 36-year-old soldier returned to easternA fghanistans Khost Province, the first thing he d id was look above his bunk. Every month, his wife sent him new sets of footprints tor emind J.D. how quickly their little girl was growing. He had gotten his Fathers Day box, she said. I already marked it 12 months because Elanas first birthday is (June O n June 19, the couple saw each other on Skype. Things had gotten scary over there, J.D. explained, and he needed Christysp rayers. Their conversation was interrupted by background noise from Elana, which immediately perked the soldier up. Go get my baby! he said. Before Christy could bring Elana downstairs, J.D. disappeared from the screen after his base lost power. The last text message Christy received from her husband was later that afternoon. Please kiss my baby for me, it read. Christy was at work on June 20 when a strange car approached. As soon as she saw an Army officers dress blues, she knew J.D. was dead. I am so sorry to tell you, but your husband was killed in action, the soldier said as Christy dropped to the floor. The Pentagon said J.D. w as killed when terrorists attacked his unit with small arms fire and an improvised explosive device. First Lt. Ryan Rawl, 30, and Sgt. 1stC lass Matthew Thomas, 30, also lost their lives. B efore J.D. left for Afghanistan, his wife asked him to record two audio-b ooks for his little girl. e read them every n ight, Elanas tearful mom said. Christy Meador is one of n umerous military spouses to lose a loved one during t he violent summer of 2012. This column exists to keep the military communitys heroism in the spotlight. There are so many peop le out there, even good friends of mine, saying, I cant believe he left you and that baby, Christy said. I say, You dont understand.I s something he wanted to T he Thursday night bowling league in Columbia, S.C., will always be missinga star player.

Green Globes statistics show that throughout North America, 54 percent of wasteg oes to landfills, 13 percent is recycled and the remaining percentage (approximately 33 percent) is incinerated. In Highlands County, by comparison, 88 percent of waste is thrown in landfills and 12 percent is recycled. Green Globes proposal for Highlands County, which includes acquiring space at the landfill to develop a factory, were highlighted in Farmers presentation and are as follows: Treatment of incoming solid waste at an agreed perton gate fee 60 percent recycling and diversion 40 percent residual material sent to the Highlands County landfill An income share on recovered materials Highlands County achieves increased recycling rates at no additional costs Reduction of costs associated with future landfill development The Green Globe organization believes several good things could come from the project, including 35 projected local employees, financial gains over the next 10 years, reduction of landfill costs and sustainability. What is the expense on Highlands County side? asked Commissioner Don Elwell. Gavarette and Farmer assured Elwell and the commission that no further costs will be incurred if this project is put into place. e expect that taxpayers of Highlands County will not have an expense to be able to bring in Green Globe to the county, Gavarette said. According to Gavarette, the company will absorb the costs of the project, including the development plan, permits, engineering and several other aspects. The land is the only thing the county will provide, but it will be owned by Green Globe, Gavarette stated. I want to make it very clear that the county will not be giving any funding in the development of this project. The proposal for Green Globe includes land under a 10-year contract. Gavarette believes the company will seek a renewable clause. Farmer is expecting a profit share with the county anywhere between $300,000 and $500,000 on a yearly basis, if the project goes forward. Currently, the countys solid waste operations costs are at $7 million. Gavarette stated again that the county wont spend more than it currently does. More concerns were voiced toward the end of the discussion, mainly from Commissioner Barbara Stewart. Theyre so many places around the state that have higher volumes (wasteWhy wouldnt you look there? Stewart asked. Farmer stated that though there are several other locations that were looked at throughout the state of Florida, the tonnage was unavailable for use due to it being contracted out to incinerators or other landfills. Commissioners told Gavarette and Farmer to come up with more research and projections before moving forward with the approval of the Green Globe project. Gavarette was given a twoto three-week window in which to bring back the information to the board. The date for the information, as well as Request for Proposals for recycling companies, is Sept. 18. Farmer assured the commission that no outside waste would enter Highlands County and that the 35 expected positions would all come from the local community. Stewart had one final thought about the proposed project on the table Tuesday night. I strongly urge you to be extremely cautious. Ive sat here for the last eight years and have seen the county be so quick to grab at solutions without getting into deep details. Please, please dont rush in, Stewart said.

Call 314-9876 By PHILIPELLIOTT A ssociated PressT AMPAWith a nononsense tone, Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan embraced his role as Barack Obamas top agi-t ator and Mitt Romneys chief defender Stubbornly high unemployment? Obamas fault. Dispirited Americans?O bamas fault. Even the closed General Motors plant in his beloved hometown of Janesville, Wis. You can guess whose fault that is, too, even though the plantc eased production before Obama took office. Without a change in leadership, why would the next four years be any dif-f erent from the last four years? Ryan said. T he Wisconsin congressman stepped onto the national stage Wednesday night with a Midwesterners polite but pointed outragef or a nation whose economy has not recovered quickly e nough from the Great Recession. Citing statistics, Ryan comfortably slid intot he traditional role of the No. 2 on a presidential ticke t. From the outset of the speech his highest stakesa ppearance yet in his political career he took Obama to task. He gave the R epublican faithful and Obama skeptics plenty of r eminders that some of Obamas promises of 2008 have come up short. It all started off with stirring speeches, Greekc olumns, the thrill of something new, Ryan said. Now all thats left is a presidency adrift, surviving on slogans that already seem tired, grasping at a moment that has already passed, like a ship trying to s ail on yesterdays wind. He offered praise of R omney and a brief introduction to his story growing up in Wisconsin. But thet hrust of Ryans pitch is that Obama has misled the count ry and it is time to replace him with Romney. President Obama is the k ind of politician who puts promises on the record, and then calls that the record, R yan said. But we are four years into this presidency. T he issue is not the economy as Barack Obama inherited it not the economy as he envisions it but this economy as we are livingi t. Ryan worked with his speechwriting team some longtime aides, others new additions from Romneys Boston headquarter to find a balance that appealed to voters from in-play states s uch as Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania. Economic h ardships have hit close to home there and Ryans roots in Janesville were an effortt o connect with workingand middle-class voters who r emain skeptical of the vastly wealthy Romney. He told the story of his h ometown, Janesville, where he still lives on the block where he grew up. He w orships at the Catholic parish where he was bapt ized, and the shuttered GM plant is a reminder of the past. Ryan pressed forward with other scathing criti-c isms painting Obama as a spend-crazy leader. ith all their attack ads, the president is just throwing away money and hes pretty experienced at that, he said. Ryans role: Defending Romney, slamming Obama M CT Paul Ryan concludes his speech Wednesday night at the Republican National Convention in Tampa. A ssociated PressTAMPA Republican Mitt Romney is s tepping up for the most important speech of his life, to an audience of millions, after a rousing warm-up from a running mate who vowed the days of dodging painful budget choices will end if voters toss President Barack Obama from office. Having grasped the nomination on his second try, after years spent cultivating this moment, planned to use his speech Thursday night to introduce himself to a large portion of voters and claw for advantage ina race that could scarcely be any closer. Romney hinted at the themes in a morning fundraising appeal emailed to supporters. e believe in America, even though the last four years have been full of difficulties and disappointments, doubt and despair Romney said. We believe in America, even though President Obamas failed policies have left us with record high unemploy-m ent, lower take-home pay, and the weakest economy since the Great Depression. There was no shortage of advice for Romney from armchair speechwriters on all sides. Jeb Bush, the brother and son of former presidents, said it was critical for the normally reserved GOP nominee to connect with people on an emotional level even if hes never going to be a new-age kind of guy Where it matters is connecting with other peoples concerns, Bush said in a round of morning talk show interviews. Only then, he said, will voters be ready to hear the candidates case. Overnight convention planners transformed the convention stage, extending it about 12 feet to move the candidate closer to the audience. Aglass barrier surrounded the bottom steps. On Romneys day, he looks past Democrats doubt, despair Romney

It happened to m e yesterday when I found myself out of sortsb ecause my best friend was en route to harms w ay via a military deployment, but still took t ime to call to tell me the sunset hed just witnessed reminded him of me. Busted. I missed out on the greatness of the momentb ecause I was focused on myself. If anyone had an excuse to fail to see greatness, it was President Abraham Lincoln. As war-weary as he was with a country int he throes of collapse, Lincoln still saw greatness w hen he gazed beyond the bloody battlefields and divided mess that was postCivil War America and envisioned a nation ourf ounders could be proud of that was once again one nation under God. One Thursday afternoon in 1863, Lincoln attemptedt o share this vision in a little more than two-minute speech that forever became known as The Gettysburg Address. Lincoln reminded those on both sides of the war no one had died in vain because their shed blood offered everyone, regardless of skin color, the opportunity for a new birth of freedom. He explained that moving forward as a united people would allow our government of the people, by the people, for the people to be preserved. To no surprise, Lincoln was hammered by some in the media for his vision. An editorial in the Harrisburg Patriot and Union stated, e pass over the silly remarks of the President, for the credit of the Nation we are willing that the veil of oblivion shall be dropped over them and that they shall no more be repeated or thought of. The Chicago Times detailed, The cheek of every American must tingle with shame as he reads the silly, flat and dishwattery [sic] utterances of the man who has to be pointed out to intelligent foreigners as the President of the United States. Boy, were they wrong; Lincolns address became one of the most famous presidential speeches in American h istory. So here we s tand today, the Shining City on a Hill dimly lit andd espondently divided. Though w ords have replaced muskets, and name-callingr eplaced cannons, the damage is about as severe. U nlike days of old, when President Lincoln l ay awake at night trying to unify a divided people, we have a president and Democratic leaders in Congress who preach civili-t y, yet wage their own wars on class, race and gender. They would do well to consider the words of Patrick Henry who said, Let us trust God, and our better judgment to set us righth ereafter. United we stand divided we fall. Let us not s plit into faction which must destroy that union upon which our existence hangs. President Obama and his i lk almost root for Americas demise. They obviously do not believe in the rare and precious gem that is America becauset hey do not recognize the essence of what she is as so amply described in an old adage: I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors, her ample rivers, and it was not there...in her fertile fields and boundless forests, and it was not there...in her rich mines and her vast world commerce, and it was not there...in her democratic Congress and her matchless Constitution, and it was not there. Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power: America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, she will cease to be great. Regrettably, greatness has passed before them, and they have failed to recognize it.

EDITORIALPAGEPOLICY Sebring a great place to hold bike eventEditor: For the past 30 years, Highlands Pedalers has been promoting safe cycling and advocating for fair use of the r oads. In part due to those efforts, visitors to Highlands C ounty are quick to note we have the safest, friendliest motorists in the state. We want to thank you, the motorists who go out of your way daily, for sharing the road, giving us a minimum of 3 feet of space and a friendly wave once you have safely passed us. This Labor Day Weekend, were hosting another threeday bicycle festival with friends from all over Florida and we invite you, the casual bike rider, to join us and see what all the fun is about. We have routes for all abilities, especially shorter rides around 11, 20 and 30 miles if youre wary of pushing yourself too hard. All of our routes have designated rest areas where you can refuel and rehydrate. We encourage you to bring your own fluids on the bike and we require participants to wear helmets. The best place to get information for Tour of Sebring is at www.tourofsebring.com/. All rides begin and end at Kenilworth Lodge on the south side of Lake Jackson. Our commitment to positive cycling culminated this year in a donation to three families from Team TriPOWER, a youth triathlon training club that Highlands Pedalers created earlier this year. With three children qualifying for IronKids National Championships in DesM oines, IA, we joined with the community in chipping in a few bucks to help these families cover their costs. Thanks to the generosity o f our members, Pedalers donated $1,500 at our last meeting to the families of Bud Cox, Kinsley White and Chase Doty. We wish them luck in their races, safe travels and a good time. Bob and Rita Bennett Bike Event Directors SebringObama is not a friend to veteransEditor: I would like the time to share with the public my view on Billie E. Jewetts opinion, with my experience. Halliburton could have been stopped by the Obama administration at any time; he did not. Instead, Obama gave out more monies to other countries that were killing our soldiers. As for the Replubicans or the Democrats being the blame, both are at fault. After 30 years of fighting for warcaused injuries it took the help of Lee Hamilton (D and Bill Saxby of Ohio (R to get help. And for bills info Johnson screwed us, Carter screwed the Vietnam vet, gave draft dodgers amensty and gave them jobs with the government when we who served got nothing and could not buy a job, and rationed gas at five gallons per stop. I was a war vet and journeyman lineman with the IBEWUnion, was out of work while the draft dodgers are probably still workingf or the government. That m ay account for the number o f non high school graduates w orking in government. Do you, Bill, know of Gen. Giep of Vietnam? He said that one or two more bombings of North Vietnam they would have surrendered, that was Johnsons deal. Now comes Obama. He has cut, cut, cut the vets more than $16 billion, and you were trying to get disability pay from this administration. Also Obama has stated that we, the war veterans are unpatriotic for getting our war wounds treated at the Veterans Administration. He stated we should have had private insurance, and we should have known we could have been killed or wounded when we enlisted. Well, as you may know something that Obama does not, all were not RE, RA, NG like me. I was US drafted at the age of 24 so you and Obama need to look up the real truth. Adisabled Vietnam veteran that suffered for more than 30 years without help and now Obama wants to do it all over again to us. Clarence F. Neeley Lake Placid Taking another step in historyEditor: As long as you keep ordering from Sears, they would send you a new catalog every time one came out, free. The old Sears catalog would go out to the old outhouse. Almost every old outhouse had a Sears catalog laying on the seat. Of course, it wasnt as soft as Charmin but it did the job. The old Sears catalog was free toilet paper. That was one thing you could cross off the grocery list. Bill Murphy from Channel 13 was on one of his onetank trips down in Bradenton back in about October 2004. They still had the old outhouse there with the moon slice cut out of the door. Bill opened the door and looked in, he said Yes, it is a twoseater. Bill didnt say anything about the Sears catalog. But Im sure the old Sears catalog was all used up. In one of my write ups back in 2003, I told about the old wagon trail that run from Fort Ogden to Fort Bassinger. DeSoto Road was also part of the old wagon trail. At that time, Highlands Avenue ended at DeSoto Road. It didnt go on south like it does today. On the south side of DeSoto Road and about 300 feet west of Highlands Avenue, there was a house, a chicken farm and a grove there that was known as the Hodge place. Willy Taylor taught the fifth grade in the old school on Pine Street for many years. I remember hearing her saying when she was a little girl, her dad worked in the field at the Hodge place. Her family was living at the Hodge place at that time. It was about two miles from where my dad lived over to the Hodge place. William Schlosser Sebring Arecent poll by Quinnipiac University, conducted for CBS News and the New York Times, found that Scotts approval rating had risen to 41 percent.F orty-nine percent of voters disapprove of Scotts job performance. For Scott, thats a noteworthy improvement. After a rocky start with voters and the media, the governor is showing more awareness of the need tos ell his policies and reach out to critics. Yet he is still underwater, as the p ollsters say. His approval rating is well below 50 percent, a sign that he still faces an uphill climb to re-election. I t has taken this long for Scott to stanch his political bleeding. When he came into office, it was after two bruising battles, one in the Republican primary and one in the 2010 general election. H e won narrowly and with less than 50 percent of the more than 5 million votes cast. Thus, Scott came into office with numerous scrapes and wounds. But how he proceeded to govern in his first yearh urt him too. Scotts early communication strategy d idnt put him in a warm light. He came off as aloof as he kept the media at arms length. S cott explained some of the access i ssues to The News-Journal earlier this year, noting that he had hundreds of appointments to make even before he took office. He then had to try to balance the budget in early 2011 and deal witht he Legislature. True enough. But there is no doubt Scott was wary of the media, and that he did little to reach out to Floridians outside his base of tea party support. S cott is doing better in part because hes aggressively explaining and defending his positions. Hes also reaching out more to state lawmakers and building support for his ideas. ... Agovernor shouldnt govern by polls b ut an astute leader pays attention to public opinion and attempts to shape it t hrough policy and perception. A n editorial from the Daytona Beach NewsJournal. Scott should pay attention to polls Gov. Rick Scott is doing a little better in public opinion polls a reflection, perhaps, of his efforts to improve communication with his constituents.

Continued from page 1A News-Sun file photo Cyclists return to Kenilworth Lodge after participating in the Tour of Sebring event. Tour of Sebring set this weekend der. Officials in Tangipahoa Parish, La., feared the water it would pour into the already swollen river would flood low-lying areas downstream. Even as Isaac weakened on its slow trek inland, it continued to spin off life-threatening weather including storm surges, inland flooding from torrential rain and potential tornadoes. Nearly half of Louisiana electrical customers lost power and another 150,000 were out in neighboring Mississippi. ACoast Guard helicopter hoisted a couple and their dogs early Thursday from a home in LaPlace, between the Mississippi River and Lake Ponchartrain, after storm surge poured into their neighborhood and local authorities called for help. The couple was taken to New Orleans and reported in good condition. The husband and wife and their two dogs were in an area where a lot of houses washed away, said Lt. Cmdr. Jorge Porto. They used a flashlight inside the house asa signaling device, which made all the difference in locating them effectively The floodwaters were shockingly fast-rising, from what I understand from talking to people, Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne said. It caught everybody by surprise. Atow truck driver was killed Thursday morning when a tree fell on his truck in Picayune, Miss., just across the state line from Louisiana. Authorities said Isaac was causing heavy rain and strong winds at the time. President Barack Obama declared federal emergencies in Louisiana and Mississippi late Wednesday, allowing federal aid to be freed up for affected areas. Isaac arrived seven years after Hurricane Katrina and passed slightly to the west of New Orleans, where the citys fortified levee system easily handled the assault. Unfortunately, thats not been the case for low-lying areas outside the federal system, in particular lower Jefferson and Plaquemines parishes, said Louisiana Democratic U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu. Hurricane Isaac has reinforced for us once again just how vulnerable these critical areas are. We must re-engage the Corps of Engineers on this. Louisianas Public Service Commission said 901,000 homes and businesses around the state about 47 percent of all customers were without power Thursday. Utility company Entergy said that included about 157,000 in New Orleans. New Orleansbiggest problems seemed to be downed power lines, scattered tree limbs and minor flooding. One person was reported killed, compared with 1,800 deaths from Katrina in Louisiana and Mississippi. And police reported few problems with looting. New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu ordered a dusk-to-dawn curfew. Continued from page 1A Isaacs floods spark evacuations Associated PressCAPE CANAVERAL Twin satellites rocketed into orbit Thursday on a quest toe xplore Earths treacherous radiation belts and protect the planet from solar outbursts. NASAlaunched the scie nce probes before dawn, sending them skyward aboard an unmanned rocket. Theyre now at home in the Van Allen belts wheret hey belong, said Nicola Fox, the deputy project scientist for the Johns HopkinsU niversity Applied Physics Laboratory. Its the first time two s pacecraft are flying in tandem amid the punishing r adiation belts of Earth, brimming with highly charged particles capable ofw recking satellites. These new satellites s hielded with thick aluminum are designed to withstand an onslaught of cosmic rays for the next two years. Were going to a place that other missions try to a void and we need to live there for two years. Thats one of our biggest chal-l enges, said Richard Fitzgerald, project manager f or Johns Hopkins. Fitzgerald wore a black tuxedo for the big event, my good-luck tux. Its the same suit he wore for the launch of another set of twins cience satellites that still are going strong after 10 years. Im hoping for the same with these Radiation Belt Storm Probes, he said. T he Johns Hopkins lab built the radiation belt p robes for NASA, and is operating them from Maryland following a week of launch delays. Scientists expect the $686 m illion mission to shed light on how the sun affects the V an Allen radiation belts, named after the astrophysicist who discovered them ah alf-century ago. Earths two doughnuts haped radiation belts stretch thousands of miles into space; these inner and outer belts are full of high-energy particles from the sun and elsewhere in the cosmos, trapped by Earths magneticf ield. Normally, the belts remain well above the International Space Station and low-flying satellites. But the belts cane xpand during solar storms right into the paths of orbiting spacecraft. If severe enough, the storms can cripple satellites and endangera stronauts, and disrupt power and communications on the ground. T he goal of this mission is to improve space weather forecasting. The Earth responds to whats coming from the sun, s o we say, If the sun sneezes, the Earth catches a cold, said Nicola Fox,d eputy project scientist for Johns Hopkins. The sympt oms vary widely and need to be better understood, she said. Science instruments aboard the nearly identicals pacecraft will measure the high-energy particles coursi ng through the radiation belts and numbering in the trillions. The satellites willt raverse both the inner and outer belts, flying as close as 3 00 miles to Earth and as far away as almost 20,000 miles. NASA launches twin satellites to radiation belts Were going to a place that other missions try to a void and we n eed to live there f or two years. Thats one of our biggest c hallenges.RICHARDFITZGERALD p roject manager In lieu of flowers, consider a gift to support Hospice care. 888-728-6234 Cornerstonehospice.orgNo. 5019096

C M Y K Last weekend proved to be a tough time to fish. Wind and rain, two of the biggest challenges for all fishermen, limited our opportunities on Lake Walk-in-Water and Lake Sebring. B urt Watkins of Avon Park joined me for a shorta fternoon trip on Lake S ebring prior to Tropical Storm Isaacs arrival, and we spent a couple of hours trolling deep water, directly out from the boat ramp. The deepest water in the lake, about 18 feet, is out a couple hundred yards from the ramp and Ih ad had some success with size 100 spoonplugs in that area before, so we made a few passes, caught a couple small ones and then had two hookups at the same time. M ine was only a twopounder but Burts was a hefty 4.3 pounds, providing a great display of acrobatics some 50 feet behind the boat. Ashort time later, Burt hooked a much larger fish that made one spectacular leap, throwing the spoonplug high into the air and returning to his deep water home. Nothing like trolling at a high speed and getting a hit! Even a small bass feels like a freight train when they hit a lure moving at 2-4 mph. We should have thrown out a marker buoy and stopped to cast out the area when we had the double-header, but with all the excitement, we forgot to mark the area, so we continued trolling. It always amazes me to catch bass in deep water. As Buck Perry has state d often, the home of the fish is deep water which is where youll find them 90-percent of the time. T rolling a welldesigned lure like a s poonplug is the only way t o cover large areas of deep water, probing every nook and cranny. Spoonplugs are By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID As the third game of Lake Placids three-game sweep was com-i ng to a close over Clewiston Tuesday night, the only real drama remaining was whether theyd be able to p ull off a certain trifecta. The first two games of the m atch had been decided by i dentical 25-16 scores, and the way the finale was playing out, it looked like it could be possible. Getting to that point, however, was a relative letdown for the squad, which had looked surprisingly strong in last Thursdays tournament win over Sebring but came out flat against the Lady Tigers. Astruggling program under a new coach, Clewiston came in at an obvious disadvantage to the young but sharp and skilled Dragons. But the youth which had been relatively obscure in the Preseason Classic, was more in evidence this evening. This was were our youth showed up, head coach Linnette Wells said. First time in front of the home crowd and everything, I think got them a little nervous. Which might explain why the Tigers were the first on the board in each of the first two games. Lake Placid quickly erased the 1-0 lead in the opener and opened up an 18-8 lead aftera run highlighted by a Raveen Gobourne ace and Jacalyn Baldwin kill. But some sloppy, disjointed play crept in and allowed Clewiston to claw a little closer. A few mini-runs closed it to within 23-16 before the Dragons put it away by the first 25-16 score. T he general malaise on the Lake Placid side of the court c ontinued in the second g ame, with the Tigers again scoring first, and building on it to the tune of a 6-2 lead. ABreauna Corley kill and two Joanna Sanchez aces helped turn it around, however, as the Dragons took off on a run that made it 14-8. They continued to build the lead until it was 21-12, but again, Clewiston was allowed to creep back. The final eight points were split, 4-4, to secure the second straight 25-16 win. e continued that tendency our teams have had to play down to our opponents, Wells said. We were too quiet and not aggressive enough. Finally, at one point,I got aggressive with them and they took that to the court. Which looked like the tone changer the team needed as they finally scored first and kept it going. ABaldwin kill highlighted a run that made it 10-5, with ensuing runs pushing it to 136, 18-10 and 22-11. With this momentum of play seemingly on a roll, the SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, August 31, 2012 Page 3B Courtesy photo Austin Whidden leaps and hauls in this catch for the Eagle Pee Wees Saturday.

Lady Dragons lag, sweep Tigers Special to the News-Sun The Highlands Youth Football and Cheer Organization (HYFC the road this week at Lakeland to take on the Titans on Saturday, Aug. 24. The first team to take the field was the Flag team ages 5 and 6 years old coached by Steve Remes. With a strong offensive drive, the Eagles quickly took control of the game, scoring at will. The defense made their presence known and stood strong shutting down the Titans for the day. It was a very exciting game with the Eagles taking the 27-0 win. Next up were head coach Justin Jacksons Mighty Might squad. Quarterback Graisin Wheelock appeared to complete a pass to Taivion Coston for a 35-yard score, but it was called back for a block in the back penalty. The offense continued to drive down the field with key carries by Alex Pollard and Blaine Garza, but couldnt get into the end zone. It quickly became a defensive battle for the Eagles with linebacker Jesus Williams making some awesome tackles with help from teammates Caleb Reed and Garza. But it was not enough as the Titans came out on top of the 14-0 final. Next up was the Pee Wee team coached by Tim Hooks The Pee Wees got off to a slow start, going into the second quarter scoreless. But blockers Dalton Hooks and James Pearson soon plowed the way for Kasey Hawthorne to gain 42 yards into the end zone, with Anthony Rosado earning the extra point. The Eagles ended the first half with a pass by Pearson to Austin Whidden for 37 yards. The defensive battle continued when late in the third quarter, Cameron Spaulding kept pounding the ball up the middle to gain key yardage. Hawthorne then bulled it in from three yards out, and Rosado added the extra point. The defense, lead by Jordan Rose and Austin Smith, along with key tackles by Brian Pollard and Mason Smith, shut down the Titans for the 14-0 win. Following the Pee W ee game, Cliff Howells Junior Varsity team took the field with the Titans. The game got off to a great start with quarterback CJ Harris completing a long pass to Malcolm Jackson for the first touchdown of the day.

But some sloppy play again slipped in, allowing Clewiston to score five straight. And now it looked less likely for the three-peatas the Tigers were now at the 16-point mark already. But a final surge scored the final three points for the Dragons and the trifecta was achieved with one more 2516 win. Though that was of little solace to Wells. Our mindset seems to be locked on Avon Park and Sebring, she said. When we play them, it brings our game up. And while these out of district games dont mean as much, we need to continue to play up.

Florida Trail Association September activities News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Joanna Sanchez hovers momentarily before launching a kill attempt in Tuesdays win over Clewiston. Dragons look to see Sebring B y KYLE HIGHTOWER Associated PressORLANDO It wont take much this year for Central Florida to improve on its record away from Orlando last season. In fact, just one victory will do it. The Knights went 0-6 on the road in 2011 en route to a disastrous 5-7 season, their worst finish since 2008. Now as his team prepares to open its 2012 campaign Thursday night at Akron, coach George OLeary isnt offering any sugarcoating about what went wrong last year. Those games, you gotta finish. You gotta win in the fourth quarter. We didnt do that, OLeary said. And I stress that we say we.Football is a wegame and its so easy to say meor whatever, but football is a wegame and theres a lot of reasons why that we didnt finish games. What was most disheartening for OLeary and the coaching staff last season was that five of UCFs six road losses were by seven or fewer points. In each their final two losses, the Knights held fourth quarter leads only to come up short. The first time, the offense failed to convert on a two-point conversion in a 30-29 loss at Southern Mississippi. Then, a week later it was the defenses turn, as it surrendered a 56-yard touchdown run to give East Carolina a 38-31 victory. Those are games you have a chance to win and you gotta finish the plays, OLeary said. I think its something thats been stressed with the players...Every play is an important play OLeary will put the offense this season in the hands of redshirt sophomore Blake Bortles, who will be making his first career start Thursday. But OLeary is looking for his 19 returning starters and 21 seniors to handle the leadership reins while the young quarterback gets used to the role. Bortles is replacing junior Jeff Godfrey, who left the program briefly after last season, but has returned as a receiver. For their part, Bortlesteammates said theyre ready to put last season behind them. I think the first thing we did was reflected on last year, senior left guard Theo Goins said. It really sucks when you put in a lot of hard work like that and it doesnt show up like you want it to. So I think weve really focused on the little things that we could have done last year...But you cant change the past, you can only work on the future. Everyones strong, everyones healthy. Everyones doing what they gotta do to get better. So I think thats what were looking forward to. Senior free safety Kamal Ishmael said going against Bortles in practice, he can see the benefits of the change because it gives the offense as many playmakers on the field as possible. Though he played only in relief roles in 2011, Bortles actually led the team with six touchdown passes last season and had a better passing efficiency than Godfrey. Still, OLeary said he doesnt want to throw too much at him right away. s still young and I understand that thoroughly, he said. And I dont think we can put too much on his plate. Most of the (playbookto watch that he doesnt become so filled with information that he cant process it. I think thats my concern with him. UCF looking to overcome 2011 road woes in opener

Games will begin at 9 a .m., with admission at $4 for adults and $3 for children. Come on out to support the Highlands Youth Football and Cheer pro-g ram. Continued from 1B designed to dig down to different depths and stay there, while remaining almost weedless while tracking the contours of the lake bottom. Each size is progressively larger, allowing a fisherman to thoroughly work every depth range from 2-3 feet down to 25 feet. Even deeper water can be f ished using wire line instead of monofilament Our success ended almost as abruptly as it had started and we were off the lake in a short two hours before the rains set in. On Saturday, I had the opportunity to fish with Derek Frymier, Pastor of New Life Fellowship, 2213 Rainbow Ave in Sebring and a fishing buddy of his, John Cheezan. Although the weather forecast called for rain and wind due to Tropical Storm Isaac, we met early for a trip to Lake Walk-in-Water. Heading up to the north end of the lake and one of my favorite spots, the wind was already pushing a lot of water, but I knew we could get out of the wind some-w hat when we arrived at the reed islands where Id caught some huge bass in the past. D erek and I had fished together last month on Lake I stokpoga and I watched as h e lost a big bass flipping the reeds on the east side of the lake. This being his first attempt at flipping, I had bragged up Lake Walk-inWater as being a big bass lake as well, so we were all anticipating a chance to hook into a lunker on this trip. As the weather conditions deteriorated, we had a few hits when Derek tied into a good fish that peeled off line and headed deep into the reed island. As a guide, as well as a tournament bass fisherman, thats exactly what you dont want to see happen when youre flipping and you hook a good fish. Often the fish will take the bait and swim out from the cover, allowing you to do battle in open-water, but this one decided to take the fight into the jungle. When a bass works deeper into the reeds, they typically will wrap around a bunch of reeds, creating a lack of tension on the line and resistance from the angler and a big opportunity for the bass to dislodge the hook. Derek adjusted his drag and gained a few feet on the bass before it did just that. We could see the fish, laying on its side about 20 feet from the boat and the only choice we had was to steer the electric motor through t he reeds to reach him. Sliding the electric moto r into high gear, and anticipating a final leap for freedom, the bass continued to lay calmly on the surface, until the boat was finally close enough for me to lean over and lip him. As I lifted the bass out o f the water, I could hear Derek breathe a sigh of relief. Although not as big as the one hed lost at Lake I stokpoga, this bass weighed i n at a respectable 6-pounds, 7-ounces and provided Derek with a new personalb ig bass record. The bite was short-lived in a couple of my spots on the north end of the lake and we finally decided to try the south end. White-caps were now covering the shallow lakes surface and the ride south was slow and wet, with an occasional high roller coming over the gunnels of the boat. By the time we got to the south end of the lake, not only had the wind picked up, but it had started raining. Standing on the front deck was no longer an option so we decided to call it a day. W ith less than a mile to the boat ramp, I knew we were in for a challenging ride. The waves were now coming over the bow of my Ranger and soaking us even more than the rain. I always compare a bass boat to a soup spoon in rough water. With the dips caused by the large waves, the front o f the boat tends to dip down, scooping the next wave and washing across the frontd eck and on to where youre seated. Not a pretty picture. It probably took us twent y minutes to get back into the boat ramp and get the boat loaded up, and for John and I, it had been a fruitless attempt to put any bass into the boat. But for Derek, catching a 6.7-pound bass, not only provided braggin rights but it was a trip Im sure hell remember.

Eagles take all but one from Titans B y JOSEPH WHITE Associated PressL ANDOVER, Md. On his first full day on the job as the kicker for the Washington Redskins, Billy Cundiff made three of four field goal attempts and was booed for the one he missed. s good to be back in the NFC East, where they boo the home team, the veteran said. It reminds me of my days in Dallas. Signed Tuesday after the Redskins cut Graham Gano, Cundiff was the only firststringer of consequence for either team Wednesday night in Washingtons 30-3 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Cundiff converted from 39, 27 and 22 yards and got some grief from the crowd when he sliced one wide right from 46. s a different environment, and to be honest with you, I think its a good thing because they expect perfection, he said. And even though perfection is unattainable, if you try to be perfect and you come pretty close, youre going to have a really good season. With head coaches Mike Shanahan and Greg Schiano resting nearly all of their offensive and defensive starters, the teams gathered before a modest crowd and proved that the backups from one consensus lastplace team can beat the backups from another consensus last-place team, for w hatever thats worth. The second-, thirdand f ourth-teamers were vying for roster spots, while the starters are already looking ahead to the regular season openers on Sept. 9. One Redskin who helped his odds was seventh-round draft pick Richard Crawford, who had his second interception of the preseason. Im new to this business, so I dont really have a confidence level, Crawford said. Ill be by my phone tomorrow and see what happens. Crawford was then told that cutdown day is Friday, not Thursday. See? I dont even know what day it is, he said. Whatever it is, Ill be by my phone. Among the Buccaneers on tenterhooks will be on-thebubble receiver Tiquan Underwood, who had six catches for 82 yards Wednesday. I left it all out there, said Underwood, who spent part of last season with the New England Patriots and has been cut six times since being drafted in 2009. Im just leaving it in Gods hands and in the coachs hands. I went out there and played my heart out. Roy Helu Jr. and Evan Royster, who both might have a shot as the Redskins starting running back job because of injuries, returned from ailments of their own to account for all three of W ashingtons touchdowns. Helu ran for 90 yards and t wo scores after missing two games with sore Achilles, w hile Royster ran for 44 yards and a TD after missing last weeks game with a sore right knee. No. 2 overall draft pick Robert Griffin III was declared the Redskins starting quarterback before training camp, so the Heisman Trophy winner ran with the other inactive first-teamers on the field before the game. He then watched fourthround selection Kirk Cousins play into the third quarter and complete 15 of 27 passes for 222 yards and an interception. Brett Ratliff, third on the depth chart behind Josh Freeman and Dan Orlovsky, played the entire game for the Buccaneers and was sacked five times. He completed 14 of 30 passes for 164 yards and three interceptions. He had a gutsy performance, Schiano said. There were certain things that we missed both in protection and seeing it, the quarterback spot. But the thing is, he wanted to keep playing. At the end of the game, on fourth down, he was, Cmon, Coach.I love that about guys that want to play ball. The Redskins signed Cundiff without even a tryout, judging his body of work with the Baltimore Ravens and figuring it to be an upgrade over Gano, who m issed an NFL-high 10 field goal attempts last year five of them blocked. Cundiff was All-Pro in 2010 but struggled with l ong-distance kicks last year, going 1 for 6 from 50plus. He was released by the Ravens on Sunday. Obviously, he would like to be 100 percent, Shanahan said. But he was 3 for 4, and hopefully hell be 4 for 4 once we get to the season. Notes: Undrafted rookie Sean Baker had two interceptions and a fumble recovery for Tampa Bay. ... Redskins QB Jonathan Crompton, re-signed earlier in the day after being cut Monday, finished the game. ... Washington RB Tristan Davis left with a right knee injury. ... Schiano took the backup theme to the extreme by using his reserve long snapper, a decision that became apparent when Zack Pianalto sent a bouncer to the punter at the end of Tampa Bays first offensive series. Pianalto had two other low snaps, showing hes no threat to unseat regular snapper Andrew Economos. ... Replacement referee Jim Core contributed to the backup theme by checking a replay, announcing the call was upheld, then telling the crowd: Well look at it one more time.

I dont take probiotics but I doa ppreciate your perspective. Not one of 14 doctors over s ix years has ever suggested probiotics. Whats the big deal? R.M., Ocala Answer: Hmm, maybe you w ould not have needed 14 doctors if any one of them had warned you of the adverse health consequences of microflora deficiency?T hink allergies, irritable bowel, depression, hypothyr oidism, cancer and autoimmune disorders galore. The ramifications for poor p robiotic status cause disease from head to toe. There are m ore than 100 trillion microbes that live inside you thats more than the numb er of actual cells that form you into a human being. You are merely the sum of the b acteria inside you, so its critical that the good organi sms outnumber the bad ones, or else disease sets in. People who enjoy good health do sob ecause of their strong immune system which powers up at birth, with an assortment of healthy bacteria obtained from mothersm ilk. Love your skin? You can thank your bacteria for that. Do you enjoy eating food without the discomfort ofh eartburn and bleeding ulcers? Thank your gut bugs because they are keeping the invaders (like H. pylori bay. Never get sick? Lets hear it for the bugs! By occu-p ying various niches in the intricate landscape of our b odies, our resident microbes protect us from foreign bacteria, fungi and viruses. Manyw ell-designed studies prove this. T o improve the ratio of good to bad microbes I recommend taking probiotic supplements, sold by some physicians and at health foods tores. Everyone associates probiotic supplements with g astrointestinal health and relief of constipation but probiotics are great for skinh ealth, weight, staying healthy as we head into c ough and cold season (hint hint), lifting depression and believe it or not, thyroidh ealth. Yes, that healthy bacterial garden in your gut activates a pproximately 30 percent of your thyroid hormone, which i n turn boosts energy and burns fat. W e all have a unique flora fingerprint. No two are the same among humans. You can change your flora easily, with every meal. For exam-p le, eat a cinnamon bun and youve easily demolished m illions of happy, healthy bacteria. All prescribed or over-the-counter medicationsr educe your probiotic bacterial stash, so Im disappointed t o hear that not one of your 14 practitioners suggested a probiotic to restore gut flora.Y ou must put back what medication stole or youll pay with your health. W ith probiotic supplementation, results are immediate, u sually within days to weeks. Oh, and yogurt is probab ly the worst way to take in probiotics since the organisms are likely dead by the time you eat it and the dairy provides a strong casein andl actose hit. And other stuff.

(AP The rustic tent cabins of Yosemite National Park a favorite among familiesl ooking to rough it in one of the nations most majestic settings have become the scene of a public health crisis after two visitors diedf rom a rodent-borne disease following overnight stays. On Tuesday, park officials s ent letters and emails to 1,700 visitors who stayed in some of the dwellings inJ une, July and August, warning them that they may h ave been exposed to the disease that also caused two other people to fall ill. T hose four people contracted hantavirus pulm onary syndrome after spending time in one of the 91 Signature Tent Cabins at Curry Village around the same time in June. The ill-n ess is spread by contact with rodent feces, urine and s aliva, or by inhaling exposed airborne particles. After the first death, the p ark sanitized the cabins and alerted the public through t he media that the cause might have been diseased mice in the park. H owever, officials did not know for sure the death was linked to Yosemite or the campsite until the Centers for Disease Control determined over the weekend that a second visitor, a resident of Pennsylvania, also hadd ied. After every park tragedy, officials stress that Yosemite is a wilderness area and with it come some dangers. Were very concerned about visitors and employees, park spokesman ScottG ediman said. But we feel we are taking proactive steps in both cleaning thea ffected areas and in public education. But its absolutel y impossible to eliminate all risk. On Sunday night, health o fficials with the National Park Service sent out an a lert asking public health authorities to be on the watch for more potential rodent-related cases of acute respiratory failure. Y osemite receives 4 million tourists a year from a round the world, and national park officials were trying to determine if thew arning should be expanded to include foreign countries. Were discussing whether to do that and how to do that, said Dr. David W ong, chief of the epidemiology branch of the National Park Service Office of Public Health.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunAVON PARK South Florida State Colleges Dental Hygiene program recently received its reaccreditation from the American Dental Association Council on Dental Accreditation (ADACODA). Accreditation is voluntary, but if a student does not graduate from an accredited program, they are not eligible to take the licensing board exams, said Rebecca Sroda, associate dean of Allied Health. Accreditation means a program meets the highest level of national standards, that graduates are able to practice successfully and that patients are receiving the highest quality care. To be reaccredited, the program had to conduct and submit a self study detailing how it met the six standards established by the ADArequired for accreditation. The self-study included a review of the programs curriculum, faculty credentials, the programs strategic plan and student learning outcomes. Following the self-study, the ADAconducted an on-site visit where two representatives viewed various areas of SFSCs Dental Hygiene program and interviewed its faculty, students and college administrators. SFSCs Dental Hygiene program was granted 100 percent approval with no recommendations. Accreditation is awarded for seven years. The SFSC Dental Hygiene program was originally accredited in 2005. Its next reaccreditation process will begin in 2019. So many people have carpalt unnel that it seems as though it must be c ontagious. The real reason is that people are l iving longer and remaining active. Doctors are also getting better at diagnosingc arpal tunnel and more research is being done on the natural history and treatmento f carpal tunnel. Carpal tunnel is a comp ression of the nerve to the thumb, index, long and half the ring fingers located att he wrist. The symptoms are pins and needles or burni ng pain in the wrist that radiates to your fingers or up to your shoulder. It tends to be worse at night, may change your handwriting orw eaken your grip. It can hurt to do anything requiring a p rolonged grip such as driving, gripping a golf club or holding a book. In laters tages, you may have trouble with fine motor skills such a s small buttons or snaps. Thirty years ago, an active 80 year old was a rare sight. N ow the active 80-plus are the most rapidly growing segment of the population. Popular activities like golf, pickleball and shuffleboarda ll require gripping. Interfering with leisure activities sends this group looking for answers to alleviate their pain. N erve conductions (NCS that measure the speed the n erve conducts impulses have become readily avail-a ble as a diagnostic tool. The site where the speed slows is the place where the nerve is compressed. If only the sens ory nerves are slow, the carpal tunnel (CTS I f both touch and motor are slow, the CTS is moderate. If both are very slow or the muscles in the hand fibrillate, the CTS is severe.D iabetic neuropathy (sick nerve) can also be detected b y NCS. The test takes about 20 minutes and is done in the doctors office. S evere carpal tunnel means the nerve has some d amage and surgery to relieve the pressure should be done as soon as practical. I n a recent study, a large group of moderate CTS patients were randomized in to one group who got surgery and another group whog ot alternative treatments such as splints, steroid injections and B vitamins. Over the next year, the entire surgery group got better andt hose that received no surgery group got worse. A n older study followed a group of CTS patients tod etermine who got better and who needed surgery. Researchers then studied the two groups looking for stat istically significant differences. These differences i ncluded age over 50, constant numbness or tingling, trigger fingers in the same hand, symptoms for more than six months or instantlyp ositive Phalen test (numbness when the wrist is f lexed). No patients with three of these symptoms got betterw ithout surgery. With two, only one third o f the patients got better without surgery. Steroid injections help only in the 2 0to 30-year-old patients. Other risk factors are diabetes, uncontrolled thyroid problems, old wrist fractures and systemic arthritis liker heumatoid or gout. Just because your symptoms are not as severe does not mean the nerve is better. Just like you lose your voicew ith too much shouting, the nerve may tire and not a nnoy you as much. If you think you have CTS t hat may need surgery, nerve conductions (NCS b est way to stage the severity and pick the best t reatment for you.

Guest Column Dr. Diana Carr D oes a strange smell find its way to your nose seconds after your shoes come off? Do people wrinkle their n oses in disgust when your bare feet are exposed? S melly feet, called bromhidrosis, can be embarrassing and uncom-f ortable. Excessive sweating of the feet is called h yperhidrosis. Its more common in men than in women, and m ore common in younger people. Most peoples feet perspire during exercise or in warm weather; if you haveb romhidrosis and hyperhidrosis, however, youll notice excessive sweating and smelly feet year round, even when you are note ngaged in strenuous activity. S ome people sweat so much that their feet mays lip around inside their shoes. Feet have more sweat glands than any other part of the body. Feet smell when the foot sweatsa nd the sweat are trapped inside shoes, preventing evaporation. It is the interaction of these two factors along with bacteria thatc ause the smell. The bacteria produce isovaleric acid, which causes the odor. Often, excessive sweating of the feet is diagnosed based on your reporting of symptoms and a physical exam of the feet. Apodiatrist can also do a starch-iodine test to confirm the diagnosis. First, an iodine solution is applied to the bottom of the feet. After the solution has dried, cornstarch is sprinkled over the area. The treated area turns dark blue if excessive sweat is present Treatment includes: Shower regularly with anti-bacterial soap. Use foot lotions and sprays specifically designed to keep feet dry. Change your shoes and socks often. Wear wicking socks that draw the moisture away from your feet instead of trapping it. Synthetic blends are designed to wick moisture away from the skin and work best to keep the feet d ry. One hundred percent cotton socks absorb moisture, but do not wick it away from the skin and frequently lead to blisters,s o they should be avoided. Rotate your shoes (especially athletic shoes Use insoles that can be changed frequently top revent the odor from staying in your shoe. Wear sandals during warm weather. Launder, disinfect or discard foul-smelling shoes. If foot odor excessive sweating persists, consult ap odiatrist. Treatment options are tailored to your symptoms. Prescription roll-on antiperspirants may bea pplied directly to the feet. Atechnique called iontophoresis, which uses water to conduct a mild electrical current through the skin, has been found helpful for people with sweaty feet. Botox injections can temporarily control excessive sweating of the feet. (The effect generally lasts for about six to nine months.) Severe cases of sweaty feet may be treated with a surgical procedure called a sympathectomy, which interrupts the nerve signals that tell the body to sweat excessively. Apodiatrist can help you control this embarrassing condition. Podiatrist Olga Garcia Luepschen and the Gentle Foot Care Center are located on US 27.

C M Y K By JUSTIN POPE A PEducation WriterA s college students return to campus in the coming weeks, theyll be showered in the usual handouts of coupons, condoms and creditc ards. But some schools are also giving students what a growing body of research reveals could make a huge difference in their collegec areers: ear plugs, sleep shades and napping lessons. College health officials are finally realizing that healthy sleep habits are a potential miracle drug for much ofw hat ails the famously frazzled modern American coll ege student: anxiety, depression, physical health problems and more than mosts tudents realize academic troubles. Some studies have f ound students getting adequate sleep average a full letter grade higher than those who dont. But adolescent biorhythms m ake it hard enough for college students to get the sleep t hey need, a recommended nine hours. On top of that, campus life turns out tor esemble a giant laboratory experiment designed for m aximum sleep deprivation: irregular schedules, newfound freedom, endless sociali nteraction, loud and crowded housing, late-night exercise and food washed down by b ooze, coffee energy drinks. Campuses pulsing with energ y at midnight by mid-afternoon resemble Zombie U., with students dozing off in library chairs, on yoga mats and even in coffee shops. T echnology isnt helping, with wireless Internet adding to the 24/7 distractions and students sleeping with their smart phones on. That likely helps explain data showing college students got aboute ight hours of sleep in the 1960s and s, seven by the 80s, and, according to more recent surveys, closer to six these days. Campaigning last week, even President BarackO bama told some students at an Ohio State University diner that he assumed you guys have arranged it so you dont have really early morn-i ng classes. No such luck. Actually, I failed that, one student replied, telling the president he had one at 8 a.m. the next day. Now, some counselors and health officials are trying to get the message out in creative ways. At tiny Hastings College in Nebraska, student peer educators plop down a bed in the middle of the student union, dress themselves in pajamas, and talk to passers-by about sleep. Macalester College in Minnesota publishes a nap map listing the pros and cons of various campus snooze sites. And many schools are offering seminars on napping (basic lesson: short naps work better). The University of Louisville is even planning a campus-wide flash nap think of a flash mob but with sleeping, not dancing later in the school year (We have to arrange in it advance so our public safety folks know its not an epidemic of something, said director of health promotion Karen Newton). Still, given the scope of sleeping problems, whats surprising is that such efforts are exceptional. Major, campus-wide campaigns appear rare or non-existent. Experts say professors (and doctors arent always good sleep role models. As for deans and administrators, many seem hesitant to tell parents whove just dropped $50,000 on tuition that the big push on campus this year will be for everyone to sleep more. While awareness is growing, at most schools sleep efforts amount to a fewp osters on campus or perhaps a few lines in a quickly forgotten talk during orientation week. While about threequarters of college studentsh ave indicated occasional sleep problems, the latest National College Health Assessment found about the same proportion reportedr eceiving no information from their school about sleep (though its possible, in their sleepiness, some forgot). The average student is functioning with a clinicals leep disorder, said LeeAnn Hamilton, assistant director o f health promotion and preventive services at the University of Arizona,d escribing research conducted on students there. They a verage about 6.5 hours per night (though students tend to over-report in such surveys). But sleep time and quality measurementsd eclined over the course of the academic year, while a nxiety, depression and conflict with family, friends and roommates all rose. A s described by junior Sara Campbell, residence hall l ife at UAmakes it hard even for students trying to sleep constant late-night chattering, visitors coming and going, early morning clean-i ng crews running their vacuums. She aims to be asleep b y 12:30 or so but was dumbfounded to find girls on her hall regularly pulling allnighters for papers and exams basically, academics uicide, the research shows. Not to speak bad of them, b ut a lot of them are freshmen and just decided to wait till the last minute, shes aid. Her big challenge was managing with a roommate w ho tries to keep earlier hours; this year the pair are m oving off-campus together where theyll have separate bedrooms. S till, Campbell is applying what shes learned about s leep as a psychology major. This year, shes arranged her schedule to have classes and work start at 8 a.m. every day of the week. That will bet ough, but commits her to avoiding the destructive patt ern trapping many college students getting up early one day, then sleeping latet he next. Regularity is key Campbell said. You can pick a schedule here and have a d ifferent time to get up every day, but going to bed at a different time every night, it wears on your body College mental health prof essionals are increasingly asking students about sleep right away, finding its often the low-lying fruit for helping studentss. When you find depression, even when you find anxiety, when you scratch the surface 80 to 90 percent of the time you find a sleep problem as well, saidU niversity of Delaware psychologist Brad Wolgast. M any students who think they have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder are often just sleep-deprived. Some simple steps toi mprove sleep hygiene are usually far preferable to prescribing drugs like Ritalin or Adderrall. (Wolgast is also seeing more students whoveb een prescribed sleeping pills, which he says usually harm sleep patterns more than help). On a campus theyre d ealing with alcohol, cocaine, marijuana, Ridalin abuse, sexual assault, Wolgast said. In comparison, sleep looks like a small problem. But the truth is Ic ould wave a magic wand and change everybodys s leep, there would be fewer problems with pretty much everything else. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, August 31, 2012Page 7B disney on ice; 5.542"; 9.5"; Black; disney on ice rockin ever afte; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 2 2 6 6 9 9 9 9 E .O.

C M Y K God knows everything about our lives before we areb orn. He knows what our names will be, how many hairs are on our heads, and who our parents will be. He also knows everything int his life that we will ever go through. Just think, as you are reading this, He knows what you are wearing and whaty ou are feeling right now. Psalm 139:1-7 reminds us of how well He knows us. O Lord, You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my ris-i ng up; you understand my thoughts afar off. You comp rehend my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways.F or there is not a word on my tongue, but behold, O L ord, You know it altogether.You have hedged me behind and before, and laid your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderfulf or me; it is high, I cannot attain it. A s we reflect on the sovereignty of God, lets ask ourselves, What does itm ean for our identity to be truly in Christ? Id like to c onsider a few passages from Gods word along with my personal experience,e specially the pursuit of my masters degree in education. After I completed my mast ers degree in education, there was a time I also wante d a Ph.D. These may not seem like bad plans. As a matter of fact, many would consider this to be quite an achievement in life. P ersonally, I began questioning my life more and wondered if there was something I was missing. I also began to wonder what the meaning behind it all was. Somewhere in the midst oft his, I fell deeply in love with the Lord, and I wanted t o have a huge powerful ministry and go to seminary to get yet another degree. After completing my masters degree, I was burnedo ut and tired of teaching. I thought I would never want to teach again. The Lord gave me a job working at a p re-school for two years that was very difficult. I was bitter and angry because of where the Lord had me whenI first started. After all, I thought I was s upposed to be teaching as a college professor by now. H owever, through this experience at the pre-school, I began to realize what a m inistry truly was and what the concept of obedience m eans. I also grew in the Lord over these two years at a faster rate than I had in my entire 36 years of living. As my heart grew for God overt he two years of working in a pre-school, I developed a g reat love for children again. I realized I wanted to be a teacher again. However, theL ord would not give me a teaching job in a classroom s etting. He gave me something even better. He gave me a teaching job at homew ith one child, my only son. I must admit, it is not an easy task, but obedience b rings blessing, more humility, more character and a s tronger faith. Think about how many times I used the words I want in this short story of myself. Does having a mas-t ers degree or a newspaper column, one student or many students, make me more or less loved by God? Is it possible that the question we should ask is, what does God want or what would edifyC hrist? The truth is God loves us n o matter what. He doesnt look at our performance or how clean and organized we can keep our house. He cares about our heart. When wea re sweeping our floor and washing dishes, does that make us any less important than the person who is traveling in a commercial jet to Paris? He loves us still thes ame. Does it matter if we have only two close friends rather than many? We are still adored. We should put our trust in C hrist alone. Psalm 20:6, 7 says, some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will remember the name of the Lord our God. Thisv erse alone tells us that God wants to be the center of our lives. He wants to be the King of our hearts. I encourage to you to take some time and reflect on your life. Arey ou discouraged because you are not where you think y ou should be in this season of life? Have you considered that maybe you are whereG od wants to you to be at this present time? I thank God for the education and the abilities that He has given me, but most of all I thank Him for teaching me that Christ-like charactera nd humility are more important than my education o r past experiences. Furthermore, Im glad to know how much He adoresm e and that He knows the kind of job I should have. W hen you start thinking that you are not as important to God because you donth ave what others have or you feel like you rank low on the list because you only c lean toilets for a living, tell yourself the truth with the f ollowing verses to remind yourself where to place your identity. I am Gods Child (John 1:12 bought with a price: Ib elong to God (I Corinthians 12:27). I cannot be separated from the love of God (Romans 8:3539). L eslie Deese is a Sebring resid ent.

(AP Sandy Mattice has declined to stop the Hamilton County Commissions prayers before meetings while a lawsuit is being heard. Tommy Coleman and Brandon Jones filed suit in June after commissioners refused their request to hold a moment of silence instead of prayers. They claim the prayers promote Christianity in violation of the First Amendments Establishment Clause. On Wednesday, Mattice denied a request for a preliminary injunction. The commission adopted a new prayer policy on July 3, after the suit was filed. Under that policy ministers from all different faiths will be asked to offer prayers. The plaintiffs call the policy a sham, implying that it is merely legal cover for Hamilton County to select speakers who will inevitably advance the Christian faith. Mattice says in his opinion that offering prayers before a legislative body deliberates is not always unconstitutional. It is only unconstitutional if the prayers proselytize, advance one religion or disparage another, or otherwise affiliate the government with a specific faith, such as Christianity. But Mattice ruled that the new policy has not been in place long enough to determine whether it does any of those things, although court records do show that invocations in July were offered in Jesusname and in the name of Jesus Christ, our savior, your son, and our only hope, in Jesusname. Mattice wrote that in adopting the new prayer policy, the commission has assumed on its own behalf and on behalf of the citizens and taxpayers of Hamilton County the responsibility of ensuring that its policy is implemented in a manner that respects both the rights of its citizens and the commands of the First Amendment. Whether it will Federal judge wont issue temporary halt to prayer

C M Y K B y PETER SVENSSON APTechnology WriterNEWYORK High-definition TVs roughly quadrupled the resolution of the sets that came before them. Now, the industry is poised to do it again. By December, U.S. stores will sell a TVset with four times the resolution of todays best HDTVs, Sony Corp. said Wednesday. The set will measure 84 inches on the diagonal, making the screen area four times as large as the common 42-inch set. Executives said Sony will reveal the price of the set next week. There is, for now, very little video content available that can take advantage of the higher resolution. With some work and know-how, a computer connected to the set can display video in the ultra-HD K resolution. The set will also do its best to upscale TV, DVD and Blu-ray movies, so they look better. Phil Molyneux, chief operating officer of Sony Electronics, said the situation was no different from the launch of the cassette tape, the CD or the DVD. e always get this question when we launch beautiful new technology: Wheres the content? Molyneux told journalists at an event in New York. Did we bring the content to market? Yes, we did. The exact resolution of the set is 3,840 by 2,160 pixels. Its known as K because it has nearly 4,000 pixels on the horizontal edge. That compares with 1,920 by 1,080 pixels in p sets. More pixels allow TVmakers to make bigger screens without compromising sharpness. Sony makes digital projectors operating at 4K resolution for movie theaters. The TVindustry has been looking for a technology that will get consumers to upgrade their HDTVsets. Sales are slumping after an initial wave of upgrades from standard-definition sets, and 3-D sets attract only a small number of consumers. Apple Inc. has slowly been quadrupling the resolution of its devices, starting with the iPhone 4 two years ago. This year, it released iPads and MacBooks with ultra-highresolution screens. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, August 31, 2012Page 11B Fairmount Cinema; 1.736"; 6"; Black; -; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 2 2 9 9 1 1 1 1 DIVERSIONS DearAbby: My father died eight years ago.M other couldnt afford to bury him at the time, so he was cremated. Mom asked me to keep his ashes until her time was up so theyc ould be buried together. I have had them ever since. It makes me feel like he is still with me, that I have not totally lost him. However, over the last year,m y brothers and sisters have led my mother to b elieve that I wont respect her wishes to have them buried together when thet ime comes. She is pressuring me to bury him now. It h urts me that my family could even think I would take that away from my mother. To this day, my siblings s ay mean things about Dad, claiming he was a terrible f ather and husband. Im a lot younger than the rest of them, so its possible In ever saw the bad side of him. The father I knew was a caring, loving man, and it drives me crazy to hear my siblings speak ill of him.T hey dont remember his birthday, the date of his death or even how long ago i t was. Abby, I dont know what t o do. If I go ahead and bury my dad's ashes now, I feel I will be losing him completely. Please help me.I feel so lost. Sad and Misunderstood Daughter DearDaughter: Perhaps there is a way to satisfy everybody. Before returning your fathers ashes to your mother and siblings for bur-i al, take a small portion to keep for yourself. Your f eelings are not all that unusual and contrary to popular belief, not all ashes are scattered or buried. Sometimes they are retainedf or decades by family members who are not yet ready to part with them. DearAbby: About a year a go, I began a part-time job for extra cash. My manager and I developed an attraction for each other that soon led to a sexual relationship. The problem is that hes married with two children, and he is significantly older than me. I know now that this has to end. I have no emotional ties to him, but I think he is starting to care for me. I cant quit the job because a family member got it for me, and it would seem susp icious if I quit. Please respond soon b ecause I am trying desperately to avoid being alone with him, and its becomingm ore and more difficult. How do I end the affair and r emain on decent terms with this man? Needs a Quick Out DearNeeds: Its difficult to remain on decent termsa fter there has been indecent exposure, but tell your m anager your conscience demands that the hankypanky stop. Then, if he triest o get you alone, tell him, Nothing doing Ive t urned over a new leaf. Im sure hell find a way to handle the rejection. If itb reaks his heart, he can seek comfort from his wife, from whom he shouldnt h ave strayed in the first place. DearAbby: Im going into junior high. Im a straight-Astudent and get my homework and projectsd one. But Im not that organized. I always put my assignments away, but when I need them, theyre never there. My mom complains to me about it and calls me at roll. My room isnt so hot, either. What can I do? The Troll in St. Pete DearTroll: The time to get organized is now. Begin by cleaning your room and making sure you have as tudy area that is not messy. After that, you should always put your projects and completed assignments in one spot, and they wontb e lost. Youll be able to find them easily once you have only one place to look. Dear Abby is written by A bigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

When to bury dads ashes causes family flare-up Dear Abby By CHRISTYLEMIRE A PMovie CriticIf you can accept the notion that Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf and Jason Clarke could be brothers during this century ora ny other, you might be able to immerse yourself in the artfully pulpy allure of Lawless, based on the true story of the bootlegging Bondurants. Director John Hillcoats ultra-violent d rama plays like a hot, sweaty, delusional fever dream and is similarly fitful. It can be visceral and operatic,b eautiful and brutal but also slow and overlong. The look and the sound of it are the most effective parts, and them ost intrinsically tied: Singer-songwriter Nick Cave, a longtime friend and c ollaborator of fellow Australian Hillcoat (on The Proposition and The Road), wrote the script and co-w rote the score, so theres a peculiar kind of dark flavor, humor and musicali ty to the cadence of the dialogue.. Lawless is based on The Wettest County in the World, Matt Bondurants fictional tale of his grandfather, Jack, and his brothers, moon-s hine masters who kept the Virginia hills good nliquored up during P rohibition. The eldest, Howard (Clarke inebriated veteran of the first WorldW ar. The middle brother, Forrest (Hardy l eader of both the business and the family. And then theres Jack (LaBeouf the youngest whos eager to prove hims elf. Hes the most ambitious, which makes him the most dangerous. The Bondurant boys find their tidy little operation threatened when a corrupt Chicago lawman named CharlieR akes (Guy Pearce them down. Hes as nasty as he is nattily dressed, and Pearce once again seems to relish playing this type of precise villain. Also entering the brothersl ives, seemingly because the story needed some sort of female figure, are t wo very different women. Maggie (Jessica Chastainn owhere one day from The Big City with a Secret Past and immediately starts functioning as both the waitress at the brothersrestaurant/headquarters and Forrests obligatory love interest.B ertha (Mia Wasikowska) is the modest and pious daughter of the towns preacher who catches Jacks eye which makes no sense, given that hes a wannabe gangster with flashy tastes. Lawless allows neither of these fine, versatile actresses to display what they can do fully. It is mainly about the men, and the primal ways in which they survive and seek revenge. Yet it alsos quanders the formidable presence of Gary Oldman in just a few scenes as t he big-city mobster who Jack aspires to be like one day. S till, there is Hardy, who is always hulking and intense and impossible to stop watching. Sure, his accent is a little thick and folksy but he seems to get the melody that exists within the script and at least you can understand him better here than you could when he had that contraption strapped to his face to play Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. As LaBeouf continues efforting to showh s a grown-up now and can do serious character work, Hardy shows up and simply dominates. Lawless a visceral, fitful and violent fever dream Movie Review Lawless Rating: R (strong bloody violence, language and some sexuality/nudity) Running time: 110 minutes Review: (of 4 Courtesy Richard Foreman, Jr./MCT Jason Clarke (from left) Tom Hardy and Shia LaBeouf star in Lawless. Sony to sell ultra-HD K TV set in US stores LOS ANGELES Lindsay Lohan will not be prosecuted for a burglary at a home where she had been a houseguest, prosecutors determined Tuesday. The decision came after Los Angeles police detectives presented a potential felony burglary case against the actress and two men who were reportedly at the Hollywood Hills home of a longtime acquaintance after several items went missing earlier this month. Prosecutors cited lack of evidence to prove Lohan was involved in the thefts at the home. The items taken were described as keys, cash, sunglasses and a credit card holder. The homeowner, businessman Sam Magid, is an acquaintance of Lohan and later told authorities that he did not want to pursue a case. Lindsay is glad this matter has been cleared up so she can focus on her upcoming projects, her spokesman Steve Honig said in a statement Tuesday afternoon. One of the men police interviewed was Lohans assistant, who told authorities that he, the actress and another man went into the home early Aug. 18. Some items were taken, but the assistant refused to say who stole them, according to a memo rejecting the charges. e do not have sufficient evidence to prove this case beyond a reasonable doubt, the prosecution memo states. The document also noted that none of the missing items were found in the possession of Lohan or the two men who were believed to be at the house on the day of the burglary. Lohan wont face burglary charges

C M Y K For Christy Meador, Thursday night is bowling night. Not only is the sport a beloved hobby but her favorite Columbia, S.C., bowling alley is also where she met her future husband, Sgt. John David Meador II, known to most as J.D. He also had a nickname of Maverickbecause my favorite movie is Top Gun, Sgt. Meadors wife, Christy Meador, told The Unknown Soldiers. He looked a lot like Maverick. After meeting in 2002, Christy and her Tom Cruise look-alike, who was working part-time as a bartender at the bowling alley, fell in love. But no matter where married life took the couple, they never missed league games with friends on Thursday nights. We would always bowl, Christy said. He could bring a smile to everyone. In October 2010 the month of J.D. and Christys birthdays the ex-bartender stood up on a chair and announced to the entire alley that his wife was pregnant. He said, my wife just told me we got the best birthday present ever, Christy recalled. He told them I was expecting. Eight months earlier, J.D. made another huge announcement. After previously serving in the Army, he was re-joining the military as a member of the South Carolina Army National Guard. There was no discussion, Christy said. It was just ... Im going. On June 27, 2011, Elana Meador was born. Now I look back, and it was just so meant to be, Christy said while starting to cry. Because I dont know where I would be today had we not had (Elana). When J.D. deployed to Afghanistan, his wife knew being alone with their little girl would be a challenge. But like thousands of military spouses across America, Christy came through for her soldier. All I could do was support him, she said. J.D. came home on leave in April, which gave him the chance to share unforgettable moments with loved ones, including his older daughter. The highlight was finally spending time with baby Elana. He got to see her, hold her and talk to her, Christy said. When the 36-year-old soldier returned to eastern Afghanistans Khost Province, the first thing he did was look above his bunk. Every month, his wife sent him new sets of footprints to remind J.D. how quickly their little girl was growing. He had gotten his Fathers Day box, she said. I already marked it 12 months because Elanas first birthday is (June) 27. On June 19, the couple saw each other on Skype. Things had gotten scary over there, J.D. explained, and he needed Christys prayers. Their conversation was interrupted by background noise from Elana, which immediately perked the soldier up. Go get my baby! he said. Before Christy could bring Elana downstairs, J.D. disappeared from the screen after his base lost power. The last text message Christy received from her husband was later that afternoon. Please kiss my baby for me, it read. Christy was at work on June 20 when a strange car approached. As soon as she saw an Army officers dress blues, she knew J.D. was dead. I am so sorry to tell you, but your husband was killed in action, the soldier said as Christy dropped to the floor. The Pentagon said J.D. was killed when terrorists attacked his unit with small arms fire and an improvised explosive device. First Lt. Ryan Rawl, 30, and Sgt. 1st Class Matthew Thomas, 30, also lost their lives. Before J.D. left for Afghanistan, his wife asked him to record two audiobooks for his little girl. We read them every night, Elanas tearful mom said. Christy Meador is one of numerous military spouses to lose a loved one during the violent summer of 2012. This column exists to keep the military communitys heroism in the spotlight. There are so many people out there, even good friends of mine, saying, I cant believe he left you and that baby, Christy said. I say, You dont understand. Its something he wanted to do. The Thursday night bowling league in Columbia, S.C., will always be missing a star player. But from the mountains of Afghanistan to the hearts of his loving wife and daughters, the selfless legacy of Sgt. John David Meador II rolls on.

The open house marks a significant milestone in t he history of the college, Dr. Stephens said. In June, the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools approved a level change for South Florida Community College, which allowed it to award baccalaureate degrees. This led to the decision to change the colleges name to South Florida State College. With the start of the fall term, classes began for the BAS-SM degree, making it possible for students to pursue a bachelors degree from SFSC for the first time ever. We have always had a comprehensive mission of enriching our communities through education one life at a time,and the new bachelors program adds to it, Dr. Stephens said. This open house is a celebration of our expanded mission but also an opportunity to affirm that we continue to be a comprehensive college that responds to the needs of our community. We invite everyone to celebrate with us and hope theyll develop a greater awareness of all of the programs and services we have to offer. For more information about the college and its services, call 453-6661, 773-2252, 465-5300, or 494-7500. To learn more about the open house, call 7847250.

Federal Emergency Management Agency and Small Business Administration officials on Thursday reminded victims in 22 eligible counties of the impending deadline. The storm caused extensive flooding across the state in late June.

Green Globes statistics show that throughout North America, 54 percent of waste g oes to landfills, 13 percent is recycled and the remaining percentage (approximately 33 percent) is incinerated. In Highlands County, by comparison, 88 percent of waste is thrown in landfills and 12 percent is recycled. Green Globes proposal for Highlands County, which includes acquiring space at the landfill to develop a factory, were highlighted in Farmers presentation and are as follows: Treatment of incoming solid waste at an agreed perton gate fee 60 percent recycling and diversion 40 percent residual material sent to the Highlands County landfill An income share on recovered materials Highlands County achieves increased recycling rates at no additional costs Reduction of costs associated with future landfill development The Green Globe organization believes several good things could come from the project, including 35 projected local employees, financial gains over the next 10 years, reduction of landfill costs and sustainability. What is the expense on Highlands County side? asked Commissioner Don Elwell. Gavarette and Farmer assured Elwell and the commission that no further costs will be incurred if this project is put into place. We expect that taxpayers of Highlands County will not have an expense to be able to bring in Green Globe to the county, Gavarette said. According to Gavarette, the company will absorb the costs of the project, including the development plan, permits, engineering and several other aspects. The land is the only thing the county will provide, but it will be owned by Green Globe, Gavarette stated. I want to make it very clear that the county will not be giving any funding in the development of this project. The proposal for Green Globe includes land under a 10-year contract. Gavarette believes the company will seek a renewable clause. Farmer is expecting a profit share with the county anywhere between $300,000 and $500,000 on a yearly basis, if the project goes forward. Currently, the countys solid waste operations costs are at $7 million. Gavarette stated again that the county wont spend more than it currently does. More concerns were voiced toward the end of the discussion, mainly from Commissioner Barbara Stewart. Theyre so many places around the state that have higher volumes (waste). Why wouldnt you look there? Stewart asked. Farmer stated that though there are several other locations that were looked at throughout the state of Florida, the tonnage was unavailable for use due to it being contracted out to incinerators or other landfills. Commissioners told Gavarette and Farmer to come up with more research and projections before moving forward with the approval of the Green Globe project. Gavarette was given a twoto three-week window in which to bring back the information to the board. The date for the information, as well as Request for Proposals for recycling companies, is Sept. 18. Farmer assured the commission that no outside waste would enter Highlands County and that the 35 expected positions would all come from the local community. Stewart had one final thought about the proposed project on the table Tuesday night. I strongly urge you to be extremely cautious. Ive sat here for the last eight years and have seen the county be so quick to grab at solutions without getting into deep details. Please, please dont rush in, Stewart said.

Call 314-9876 By PHILIPELLIOTT Associated PressT AMPAWith a nononsense tone, Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan embraced his role as Barack Obamas top agitator and Mitt Romneys chief defender Stubbornly high unemployment? Obamas fault. Dispirited Americans? Obamas fault. Even the closed General Motors plant in his beloved hometown of Janesville, Wis. You can guess whose fault that is, too, even though the plant ceased production before Obama took office. Without a change in leadership, why would the next four years be any different from the last four years? Ryan said. The Wisconsin congressman stepped onto the national stage Wednesday night with a Midwesterners polite but pointed outrage for a nation whose economy has not recovered quickly enough from the Great Recession. Citing statistics, Ryan comfortably slid into the traditional role of the No. 2 on a presidential ticket. From the outset of the speech his highest stakes appearance yet in his political career he took Obama to task. He gave the Republican faithful and Obama skeptics plenty of reminders that some of Obamas promises of 2008 have come up short. It all started off with stirring speeches, Greek columns, the thrill of something new, Ryan said. Now all thats left is a presidency adrift, surviving on slogans that already seem tired, grasping at a moment that has already passed, like a ship trying to sail on yesterdays wind. He offered praise of Romney and a brief introduction to his story growing up in Wisconsin. But the thrust of Ryans pitch is that Obama has misled the country and it is time to replace him with Romney. President Obama is the kind of politician who puts promises on the record, and then calls that the record, R yan said. But we are four years into this presidency. The issue is not the economy as Barack Obama inherited it not the economy as he envisions it but this economy as we are living it. Ryan worked with his speechwriting team some longtime aides, others new additions from Romneys Boston headquarter to find a balance that appealed to voters from in-play states such as Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania. Economic hardships have hit close to home there and Ryans roots in Janesville were an effort to connect with workingand middle-class voters who remain skeptical of the vastly wealthy Romney. He told the story of his hometown, Janesville, where he still lives on the block where he grew up. He worships at the Catholic parish where he was baptized, and the shuttered GM plant is a reminder of the past. Ryan pressed forward with other scathing criticisms painting Obama as a spend-crazy leader. With all their attack ads, the president is just throwing away money and hes pretty experienced at that, he said. Ryans role: Defending Romney, slamming Obama MCT Paul Ryan concludes his speech Wednesday night at the Republican National Convention in Tampa. Associated PressTAMPA Republican Mitt Romney is stepping up for the most important speech of his life, to an audience of millions, after a rousing warm-up from a running mate who vowed the days of dodging painful budget choices will end if voters toss President Barack Obama from office. Having grasped the nomination on his second try, after years spent cultivating this moment, planned to use his speech Thursday night to introduce himself to a large portion of voters and claw for advantage in a race that could scarcely be any closer. Romney hinted at the themes in a morning fundraising appeal emailed to supporters. We believe in America, even though the last four years have been full of difficulties and disappointments, doubt and despair, Romney said. We believe in America, even though President Obamas failed policies have left us with record high unemployment, lower take-home pay, and the weakest economy since the Great Depression. There was no shortage of advice for Romney from armchair speechwriters on all sides. Jeb Bush, the brother and son of former presidents, said it was critical for the normally reserved GOP nominee to connect with people on an emotional level even if hes never going to be a new-age kind of guy. Where it matters is connecting with other peoples concerns, Bush said in a round of morning talk show interviews. Only then, he said, will voters be ready to hear the candidates case. Overnight convention planners transformed the convention stage, extending it about 12 feet to move the candidate closer to the audience. Aglass barrier surrounded the bottom steps. On Romneys day, he looks past Democrats doubt, despair Romney

It happened to me yesterday when I found myself out of sorts because my best friend was en route to harms way via a military deployment, but still took time to call to tell me the sunset hed just witnessed reminded him of me. Busted. I missed out on the greatness of the moment because I was focused on myself. If anyone had an excuse to fail to see greatness, it was President Abraham Lincoln. As war-weary as he was with a country in the throes of collapse, Lincoln still saw greatness when he gazed beyond the bloody battlefields and divided mess that was postCivil War America and envisioned a nation our founders could be proud of that was once again one nation under God. One Thursday afternoon in 1863, Lincoln attempted to share this vision in a little more than two-minute speech that forever became known as The Gettysburg Address. Lincoln reminded those on both sides of the war no one had died in vain because their shed blood offered everyone, regardless of skin color, the opportunity for a new birth of freedom. He explained that moving forward as a united people would allow our government of the people, by the people, for the people to be preserved. To no surprise, Lincoln was hammered by some in the media for his vision. An editorial in the Harrisburg Patriot and Union stated, We pass over the silly remarks of the President, for the credit of the Nation we are willing that the veil of oblivion shall be dropped over them and that they shall no more be repeated or thought of. The Chicago Times detailed, The cheek of every American must tingle with shame as he reads the silly, flat and dishwattery [sic] utterances of the man who has to be pointed out to intelligent foreigners as the President of the United States. Boy, were they wrong; Lincolns address became one of the most famous presidential speeches in American history. So here we stand today, the Shining City on a Hill dimly lit and despondently divided. Though words have replaced muskets, and name-calling replaced cannons, the damage is about as severe. Unlike days of old, when President Lincoln lay awake at night trying to unify a divided people, we have a president and Democratic leaders in Congress who preach civility, yet wage their own wars on class, race and gender. They would do well to consider the words of Patrick Henry who said, Let us trust God, and our better judgment to set us right hereafter. United we stand divided we fall. Let us not split into faction which must destroy that union upon which our existence hangs. President Obama and his ilk almost root for Americas demise. They obviously do not believe in the rare and precious gem that is America because they do not recognize the essence of what she is as so amply described in an old adage: I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors, her ample rivers, and it was not there...in her fertile fields and boundless forests, and it was not there...in her rich mines and her vast world commerce, and it was not there...in her democratic Congress and her matchless Constitution, and it was not there. Not until I went into the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power: America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, she will cease to be great. Regrettably, greatness has passed before them, and they have failed to recognize it.

EDITORIALPAGEPOLICY Sebring a great place to hold bike eventEditor: For the past 30 years, Highlands Pedalers has been promoting safe cycling and advocating for fair use of the r oads. In part due to those efforts, visitors to Highlands C ounty are quick to note we have the safest, friendliest motorists in the state. We want to thank you, the motorists who go out of your way daily, for sharing the road, giving us a minimum of 3 feet of space and a friendly wave once you have safely passed us. This Labor Day Weekend, were hosting another threeday bicycle festival with friends from all over Florida and we invite you, the casual bike rider, to join us and see what all the fun is about. We have routes for all abilities, especially shorter rides around 11, 20 and 30 miles if youre wary of pushing yourself too hard. All of our routes have designated rest areas where you can refuel and rehydrate. We encourage you to bring your own fluids on the bike and we require participants to wear helmets. The best place to get information for Tour of Sebring is at www.tourofsebring.com/. All rides begin and end at Kenilworth Lodge on the south side of Lake Jackson. Our commitment to positive cycling culminated this year in a donation to three families from Team TriPOWER, a youth triathlon training club that Highlands Pedalers created earlier this year. With three children qualifying for IronKids National Championships in Des Moines, IA, we joined with the community in chipping in a few bucks to help these families cover their costs. Thanks to the generosity of our members, Pedalers donated $1,500 at our last meeting to the families of Bud Cox, Kinsley White and Chase Doty. We wish them luck in their races, safe travels and a good time. Bob and Rita Bennett Bike Event Directors SebringObama is not a friend to veteransEditor: I would like the time to share with the public my view on Billie E. Jewetts opinion, with my experience. Halliburton could have been stopped by the Obama administration at any time; he did not. Instead, Obama gave out more monies to other countries that were killing our soldiers. As for the Replubicans or the Democrats being the blame, both are at fault. After 30 years of fighting for warcaused injuries it took the help of Lee Hamilton (D) and Bill Saxby of Ohio (R) to get help. And for bills info Johnson screwed us, Carter screwed the Vietnam vet, gave draft dodgers amensty and gave them jobs with the government when we who served got nothing and could not buy a job, and rationed gas at five gallons per stop. I was a war vet and journeyman lineman with the IBEWUnion, was out of work while the draft dodgers are probably still working for the government. That may account for the number of non high school graduates working in government. Do you, Bill, know of Gen. Giep of Vietnam? He said that one or two more bombings of North Vietnam they would have surrendered, that was Johnsons deal. Now comes Obama. He has cut, cut, cut the vets more than $16 billion, and you were trying to get disability pay from this administration. Also Obama has stated that we, the war veterans are unpatriotic for getting our war wounds treated at the Veterans Administration. He stated we should have had private insurance, and we should have known we could have been killed or wounded when we enlisted. Well, as you may know something that Obama does not, all were not RE, RA, NG like me. I was US drafted at the age of 24 so you and Obama need to look up the real truth. Adisabled Vietnam veteran that suffered for more than 30 years without help and now Obama wants to do it all over again to us. Clarence F. Neeley Lake Placid Taking another step in historyEditor: As long as you keep ordering from Sears, they would send you a new catalog every time one came out, free. The old Sears catalog would go out to the old outhouse. Almost every old outhouse had a Sears catalog laying on the seat. Of course, it wasnt as soft as Charmin but it did the job. The old Sears catalog was free toilet paper. That was one thing you could cross off the grocery list. Bill Murphy from Channel 13 was on one of his onetank trips down in Bradenton back in about October 2004. They still had the old outhouse there with the moon slice cut out of the door. Bill opened the door and looked in, he said Yes, it is a twoseater. Bill didnt say anything about the Sears catalog. But Im sure the old Sears catalog was all used up. In one of my write ups back in 2003, I told about the old wagon trail that run from Fort Ogden to Fort Bassinger. DeSoto Road was also part of the old wagon trail. At that time, Highlands Avenue ended at DeSoto Road. It didnt go on south like it does today. On the south side of DeSoto Road and about 300 feet west of Highlands Avenue, there was a house, a chicken farm and a grove there that was known as the Hodge place. Willy Taylor taught the fifth grade in the old school on Pine Street for many years. I remember hearing her saying when she was a little girl, her dad worked in the field at the Hodge place. Her family was living at the Hodge place at that time. It was about two miles from where my dad lived over to the Hodge place. William Schlosser Sebring Arecent poll by Quinnipiac University, conducted for CBS News and the New York Times, found that Scotts approval rating had risen to 41 percent. F orty-nine percent of voters disapprove of Scotts job performance. For Scott, thats a noteworthy improvement. After a rocky start with voters and the media, the governor is showing more awareness of the need to s ell his policies and reach out to critics. Yet he is still underwater, as the p ollsters say. His approval rating is well below 50 percent, a sign that he still faces an uphill climb to re-election. It has taken this long for Scott to stanch his political bleeding. When he came into office, it was after two bruising battles, one in the Republican primary and one in the 2010 general election. He won narrowly and with less than 50 percent of the more than 5 million votes cast. Thus, Scott came into office with numerous scrapes and wounds. But how he proceeded to govern in his first year hurt him too. Scotts early communication strategy didnt put him in a warm light. He came off as aloof as he kept the media at arms length. Scott explained some of the access issues to The News-Journal earlier this year, noting that he had hundreds of appointments to make even before he took office. He then had to try to balance the budget in early 2011 and deal with the Legislature. True enough. But there is no doubt Scott was wary of the media, and that he did little to reach out to Floridians outside his base of tea party support. Scott is doing better in part because hes aggressively explaining and defending his positions. Hes also reaching out more to state lawmakers and building support for his ideas. ... Agovernor shouldnt govern by polls but an astute leader pays attention to public opinion and attempts to shape it through policy and perception. An editorial from the Daytona Beach NewsJournal. Scott should pay attention to polls Gov. Rick Scott is doing a little better in public opinion polls a reflection, perhaps, of his efforts to improve communication with his constituents.

Officials in Tangipahoa Parish, La., feared the water it would pour into the already swollen river would flood low-lying areas downstream. Even as Isaac weakened on its slow trek inland, it continued to spin off life-threatening weather including storm surges, inland flooding from torrential rain and potential tornadoes. Nearly half of Louisiana electrical customers lost power and another 150,000 were out in neighboring Mississippi. ACoast Guard helicopter hoisted a couple and their dogs early Thursday from a home in LaPlace, between the Mississippi River and Lake Ponchartrain, after storm surge poured into their neighborhood and local authorities called for help. The couple was taken to New Orleans and reported in good condition. The husband and wife and their two dogs were in an area where a lot of houses washed away, said Lt. Cmdr. Jorge Porto. They used a flashlight inside the house as a signaling device, which made all the difference in locating them effectively. The floodwaters were shockingly fast-rising, from what I understand from talking to people, Lt. Gov. Jay Dardenne said. It caught everybody by surprise. Atow truck driver was killed Thursday morning when a tree fell on his truck in Picayune, Miss., just across the state line from Louisiana. Authorities said Isaac was causing heavy rain and strong winds at the time. President Barack Obama declared federal emergencies in Louisiana and Mississippi late Wednesday, allowing federal aid to be freed up for affected areas. Isaac arrived seven years after Hurricane Katrina and passed slightly to the west of New Orleans, where the citys fortified levee system easily handled the assault. Unfortunately, thats not been the case for low-lying areas outside the federal system, in particular lower Jefferson and Plaquemines parishes, said Louisiana Democratic U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu. Hurricane Isaac has reinforced for us once again just how vulnerable these critical areas are. We must re-engage the Corps of Engineers on this. Louisianas Public Service Commission said 901,000 homes and businesses around the state about 47 percent of all customers were without power Thursday. Utility company Entergy said that included about 157,000 in New Orleans. New Orleansbiggest problems seemed to be downed power lines, scattered tree limbs and minor flooding. One person was reported killed, compared with 1,800 deaths from Katrina in Louisiana and Mississippi. And police reported few problems with looting. New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu ordered a dusk-to-dawn curfew. Continued from page 1A Isaacs floods spark evacuations Associated PressCAPE CANAVERAL Twin satellites rocketed into orbit Thursday on a quest to e xplore Earths treacherous radiation belts and protect the planet from solar outbursts. NASAlaunched the scie nce probes before dawn, sending them skyward aboard an unmanned rocket. Theyre now at home in the Van Allen belts where t hey belong, said Nicola Fox, the deputy project scientist for the Johns Hopkins U niversity Applied Physics Laboratory. Its the first time two s pacecraft are flying in tandem amid the punishing r adiation belts of Earth, brimming with highly charged particles capable of w recking satellites. These new satellites s hielded with thick aluminum are designed to withstand an onslaught of cosmic rays for the next two years. Were going to a place that other missions try to a void and we need to live there for two years. Thats one of our biggest chall enges, said Richard Fitzgerald, project manager f or Johns Hopkins. Fitzgerald wore a black tuxedo for the big event, my good-luck tux. Its the same suit he wore for the launch of another set of twin science satellites that still are going strong after 10 years. Im hoping for the same with these Radiation Belt Storm Probes, he said. The Johns Hopkins lab built the radiation belt probes for NASA, and is operating them from Maryland following a week of launch delays. Scientists expect the $686 million mission to shed light on how the sun affects the V an Allen radiation belts, named after the astrophysicist who discovered them a half-century ago. Earths two doughnutshaped radiation belts stretch thousands of miles into space; these inner and outer belts are full of high-energy particles from the sun and elsewhere in the cosmos, trapped by Earths magnetic field. Normally, the belts remain well above the International Space Station and low-flying satellites. But the belts can expand during solar storms right into the paths of orbiting spacecraft. If severe enough, the storms can cripple satellites and endanger astronauts, and disrupt power and communications on the ground. The goal of this mission is to improve space weather forecasting. The Earth responds to whats coming from the sun, so we say, If the sun sneezes, the Earth catches a cold, said Nicola Fox, deputy project scientist for Johns Hopkins. The symptoms vary widely and need to be better understood, she said. Science instruments aboard the nearly identical spacecraft will measure the high-energy particles coursing through the radiation belts and numbering in the trillions. The satellites will traverse both the inner and outer belts, flying as close as 300 miles to Earth and as far away as almost 20,000 miles. NASA launches twin satellites to radiation belts Were going to a place that other missions try to avoid and we need to live there for two years. Thats one of our biggest challenges.RICHARDFITZGERALD project manager In lieu of flowers, consider a gift to support Hospice care. 888-728-6234 Cornerstonehospice.orgNo. 5019096

C M Y K Last weekend proved to be a tough time to fish. Wind and rain, two of the biggest challenges for all fishermen, limited our opportunities on Lake Walk-in-Water and Lake Sebring. Burt Watkins of Avon Park joined me for a short afternoon trip on Lake Sebring prior to Tropical Storm Isaacs arrival, and we spent a couple of hours trolling deep water, directly out from the boat ramp. The deepest water in the lake, about 18 feet, is out a couple hundred yards from the ramp and I had had some success with size 100 spoonplugs in that area before, so we made a few passes, caught a couple small ones and then had two hookups at the same time. Mine was only a twopounder but Burts was a hefty 4.3 pounds, providing a great display of acrobatics some 50 feet behind the boat. Ashort time later, Burt hooked a much larger fish that made one spectacular leap, throwing the spoonplug high into the air and returning to his deep water home. Nothing like trolling at a high speed and getting a hit! Even a small bass feels like a freight train when they hit a lure moving at 2-4 mph. We should have thrown out a marker buoy and stopped to cast out the area when we had the double-header, but with all the excitement, we forgot to mark the area, so we continued trolling. It always amazes me to catch bass in deep water. As Buck Perry has stated often, the home of the fish is deep water which is where youll find them 90-percent of the time. T rolling a welldesigned lure like a spoonplug is the only way to cover large areas of deep water, probing every nook and cranny. Spoonplugs are By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID As the third game of Lake Placids three-game sweep was comi ng to a close over Clewiston Tuesday night, the only real drama remaining was whether theyd be able to p ull off a certain trifecta. The first two games of the m atch had been decided by i dentical 25-16 scores, and the way the finale was playing out, it looked like it could be possible. Getting to that point, however, was a relative letdown for the squad, which had looked surprisingly strong in last Thursdays tournament win over Sebring but came out flat against the Lady Tigers. Astruggling program under a new coach, Clewiston came in at an obvious disadvantage to the young but sharp and skilled Dragons. But the youth which had been relatively obscure in the Preseason Classic, was more in evidence this evening. This was were our youth showed up, head coach Linnette Wells said. First time in front of the home crowd and everything, I think got them a little nervous. Which might explain why the Tigers were the first on the board in each of the first two games. Lake Placid quickly erased the 1-0 lead in the opener and opened up an 18-8 lead after a run highlighted by a Raveen Gobourne ace and Jacalyn Baldwin kill. But some sloppy, disjointed play crept in and allowed Clewiston to claw a little closer. A few mini-runs closed it to within 23-16 before the Dragons put it away by the first 25-16 score. The general malaise on the Lake Placid side of the court continued in the second game, with the Tigers again scoring first, and building on it to the tune of a 6-2 lead. ABreauna Corley kill and two Joanna Sanchez aces helped turn it around, however, as the Dragons took off on a run that made it 14-8. They continued to build the lead until it was 21-12, but again, Clewiston was allowed to creep back. The final eight points were split, 4-4, to secure the second straight 25-16 win. We continued that tendency our teams have had to play down to our opponents, Wells said. We were too quiet and not aggressive enough. Finally, at one point, I got aggressive with them and they took that to the court. Which looked like the tone changer the team needed as they finally scored first and kept it going. ABaldwin kill highlighted a run that made it 10-5, with ensuing runs pushing it to 136, 18-10 and 22-11. With this momentum of play seemingly on a roll, the SPORTS B SECTION News-Sun Friday, August 31, 2012 Page 3B Courtesy photo Austin Whidden leaps and hauls in this catch for the Eagle Pee Wees Saturday.

Lady Dragons lag, sweep Tigers Special to the News-Sun The Highlands Youth Football and Cheer Organization (HYFC) took to the road this week at Lakeland to take on the Titans on Saturday, Aug. 24. The first team to take the field was the Flag team ages 5 and 6 years old coached by Steve Remes. With a strong offensive drive, the Eagles quickly took control of the game, scoring at will. The defense made their presence known and stood strong shutting down the Titans for the day. It was a very exciting game with the Eagles taking the 27-0 win. Next up were head coach Justin Jacksons Mighty Might squad. Quarterback Graisin Wheelock appeared to complete a pass to Taivion Coston for a 35-yard score, but it was called back for a block in the back penalty. The offense continued to drive down the field with key carries by Alex Pollard and Blaine Garza, but couldnt get into the end zone. It quickly became a defensive battle for the Eagles with linebacker Jesus Williams making some awesome tackles with help from teammates Caleb Reed and Garza. But it was not enough as the Titans came out on top of the 14-0 final. Next up was the Pee Wee team coached by Tim Hooks The Pee Wees got off to a slow start, going into the second quarter scoreless. But blockers Dalton Hooks and James Pearson soon plowed the way for Kasey Hawthorne to gain 42 yards into the end zone, with Anthony Rosado earning the extra point. The Eagles ended the first half with a pass by Pearson to Austin Whidden for 37 yards. The defensive battle continued when late in the third quarter, Cameron Spaulding kept pounding the ball up the middle to gain key yardage. Hawthorne then bulled it in from three yards out, and Rosado added the extra point. The defense, lead by Jordan Rose and Austin Smith, along with key tackles by Brian Pollard and Mason Smith, shut down the Titans for the 14-0 win. Following the Pee W ee game, Cliff Howells Junior Varsity team took the field with the Titans. The game got off to a great start with quarterback CJ Harris completing a long pass to Malcolm Jackson for the first touchdown of the day.

But some sloppy play again slipped in, allowing Clewiston to score five straight. And now it looked less likely for the three-peatas the Tigers were now at the 16-point mark already. But a final surge scored the final three points for the Dragons and the trifecta was achieved with one more 2516 win. Though that was of little solace to Wells. Our mindset seems to be locked on Avon Park and Sebring, she said. When we play them, it brings our game up. And while these out of district games dont mean as much, we need to continue to play up.

Florida Trail Association September activities News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Joanna Sanchez hovers momentarily before launching a kill attempt in Tuesdays win over Clewiston. Dragons look to see Sebring By KYLE HIGHTOWER Associated PressORLANDO It wont take much this year for Central Florida to improve on its record away from Orlando last season. In fact, just one victory will do it. The Knights went 0-6 on the road in 2011 en route to a disastrous 5-7 season, their worst finish since 2008. Now as his team prepares to open its 2012 campaign Thursday night at Akron, coach George OLeary isnt offering any sugarcoating about what went wrong last year. Those games, you gotta finish. You gotta win in the fourth quarter. We didnt do that, OLeary said. And I stress that we say we.Football is a wegame and its so easy to say meor whatever, but football is a wegame and theres a lot of reasons why that we didnt finish games. What was most disheartening for OLeary and the coaching staff last season was that five of UCFs six road losses were by seven or fewer points. In each their final two losses, the Knights held fourth quarter leads only to come up short. The first time, the offense failed to convert on a two-point conversion in a 30-29 loss at Southern Mississippi. Then, a week later it was the defenses turn, as it surrendered a 56-yard touchdown run to give East Carolina a 38-31 victory. Those are games you have a chance to win and you gotta finish the plays, OLeary said. I think its something thats been stressed with the players...Every play is an important play. OLeary will put the offense this season in the hands of redshirt sophomore Blake Bortles, who will be making his first career start Thursday. But OLeary is looking for his 19 returning starters and 21 seniors to handle the leadership reins while the young quarterback gets used to the role. Bortles is replacing junior Jeff Godfrey, who left the program briefly after last season, but has returned as a receiver. For their part, Bortlesteammates said theyre ready to put last season behind them. I think the first thing we did was reflected on last year, senior left guard Theo Goins said. It really sucks when you put in a lot of hard work like that and it doesnt show up like you want it to. So I think weve really focused on the little things that we could have done last year...But you cant change the past, you can only work on the future. Everyones strong, everyones healthy. Everyones doing what they gotta do to get better. So I think thats what were looking forward to. Senior free safety Kamal Ishmael said going against Bortles in practice, he can see the benefits of the change because it gives the offense as many playmakers on the field as possible. Though he played only in relief roles in 2011, Bortles actually led the team with six touchdown passes last season and had a better passing efficiency than Godfrey. Still, OLeary said he doesnt want to throw too much at him right away. Hes still young and I understand that thoroughly, he said. And I dont think we can put too much on his plate. Most of the (playbook) is in. But I think we still have to watch that he doesnt become so filled with information that he cant process it. I think thats my concern with him.

Continued from 1B designed to dig down to different depths and stay there, while remaining almost weedless while tracking the contours of the lake bottom. Each size is progressively larger, allowing a fisherman to thoroughly work every depth range from 2-3 feet down to 25 feet. Even deeper water can be fished using wire line instead of monofilament Our success ended almost as abruptly as it had started and we were off the lake in a short two hours before the rains set in. On Saturday, I had the opportunity to fish with Derek Frymier, Pastor of New Life Fellowship, 2213 Rainbow Ave in Sebring and a fishing buddy of his, John Cheezan. Although the weather forecast called for rain and wind due to Tropical Storm Isaac, we met early for a trip to Lake Walk-in-Water. Heading up to the north end of the lake and one of my favorite spots, the wind was already pushing a lot of water, but I knew we could get out of the wind somewhat when we arrived at the reed islands where Id caught some huge bass in the past. Derek and I had fished together last month on Lake Istokpoga and I watched as he lost a big bass flipping the reeds on the east side of the lake. This being his first attempt at flipping, I had bragged up Lake Walk-inWater as being a big bass lake as well, so we were all anticipating a chance to hook into a lunker on this trip. As the weather conditions deteriorated, we had a few hits when Derek tied into a good fish that peeled off line and headed deep into the reed island. As a guide, as well as a tournament bass fisherman, thats exactly what you dont want to see happen when youre flipping and you hook a good fish. Often the fish will take the bait and swim out from the cover, allowing you to do battle in open-water, but this one decided to take the fight into the jungle. When a bass works deeper into the reeds, they typically will wrap around a bunch of reeds, creating a lack of tension on the line and resistance from the angler and a big opportunity for the bass to dislodge the hook. Derek adjusted his drag and gained a few feet on the bass before it did just that. We could see the fish, laying on its side about 20 feet from the boat and the only choice we had was to steer the electric motor through the reeds to reach him. Sliding the electric moto r into high gear, and anticipating a final leap for freedom, the bass continued to lay calmly on the surface, until the boat was finally close enough for me to lean over and lip him. As I lifted the bass out o f the water, I could hear Derek breathe a sigh of relief. Although not as big as the one hed lost at Lake Istokpoga, this bass weighed inat a respectable 6-pounds, 7-ounces and provided Derek with a new personal big bass record. The bite was short-lived in acouple of my spots on the north end of the lake and we finally decided to try the south end. White-caps were now covering the shallow lakes surface and the ride south was slow and wet, with an occasional high roller coming over the gunnels of the boat. By the time we got to the south end of the lake, not only had the wind picked up, but it had started raining. Standing on the front deck was no longer an option so we decided to call it a day. With less than a mile to the boat ramp, I knew we were in for a challenging ride. The waves were now coming over the bow of my Ranger and soaking us even more than the rain. Ialways compare a bass boat to a soup spoon in rough water. With the dips caused by the large waves, the front o f the boat tends to dip down, scooping the next wave and washing across the front deck and on to where youre seated. Not a pretty picture. It probably took us twent y minutes to get back into the boat ramp and get the boat loaded up, and for John and I, it had been a fruitless attempt to put any bass into the boat. But for Derek, catching a 6.7-pound bass, not only provided braggin rights but it was a trip Im sure hell remember.

Continued from 1B Bass caught before rains set in Courtesy photo Rafael Smith heads toward the end zone for the Junior Varsity Eagles. Eagles take all but one from Titans By JOSEPH WHITE Associated PressLANDOVER, Md. On his first full day on the job as the kicker for the Washington Redskins, Billy Cundiff made three of four field goal attempts and was booed for the one he missed. Its good to be back in the NFC East, where they boo the home team, the veteran said. It reminds me of my days in Dallas. Signed Tuesday after the Redskins cut Graham Gano, Cundiff was the only firststringer of consequence for either team Wednesday night in Washingtons 30-3 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Cundiff converted from 39, 27 and 22 yards and got some grief from the crowd when he sliced one wide right from 46. Its a different environment, and to be honest with you, I think its a good thing because they expect perfection, he said. And even though perfection is unattainable, if you try to be perfect and you come pretty close, youre going to have a really good season. With head coaches Mike Shanahan and Greg Schiano resting nearly all of their offensive and defensive starters, the teams gathered before a modest crowd and proved that the backups from one consensus lastplace team can beat the backups from another consensus last-place team, for whatever thats worth. The second-, thirdand fourth-teamers were vying for roster spots, while the starters are already looking ahead to the regular season openers on Sept. 9. One Redskin who helped his odds was seventh-round draft pick Richard Crawford, who had his second interception of the preseason. Im new to this business, so I dont really have a confidence level, Crawford said. Ill be by my phone tomorrow and see what happens. Crawford was then told that cutdown day is Friday, not Thursday. See? I dont even know what day it is, he said. Whatever it is, Ill be by my phone. Among the Buccaneers on tenterhooks will be on-thebubble receiver Tiquan Underwood, who had six catches for 82 yards Wednesday. I left it all out there, said Underwood, who spent part of last season with the New England Patriots and has been cut six times since being drafted in 2009. Im just leaving it in Gods hands and in the coachs hands. I went out there and played my heart out. Roy Helu Jr. and Evan Royster, who both might have a shot as the Redskins starting running back job because of injuries, returned from ailments of their own to account for all three of W ashingtons touchdowns. Helu ran for 90 yards and two scores after missing two games with sore Achilles, while Royster ran for 44 yards and a TD after missing last weeks game with a sore right knee. No. 2 overall draft pick Robert Griffin III was declared the Redskins starting quarterback before training camp, so the Heisman Trophy winner ran with the other inactive first-teamers on the field before the game. He then watched fourthround selection Kirk Cousins play into the third quarter and complete 15 of 27 passes for 222 yards and an interception. Brett Ratliff, third on the depth chart behind Josh Freeman and Dan Orlovsky, played the entire game for the Buccaneers and was sacked five times. He completed 14 of 30 passes for 164 yards and three interceptions. He had a gutsy performance, Schiano said. There were certain things that we missed both in protection and seeing it, the quarterback spot. But the thing is, he wanted to keep playing. At the end of the game, on fourth down, he was, Cmon, Coach.I love that about guys that want to play ball. The Redskins signed Cundiff without even a tryout, judging his body of work with the Baltimore Ravens and figuring it to be an upgrade over Gano, who missed an NFL-high 10 field goal attempts last year five of them blocked. Cundiff was All-Pro in 2010 but struggled with long-distance kicks last year, going 1 for 6 from 50plus. He was released by the Ravens on Sunday. Obviously, he would like to be 100 percent, Shanahan said. But he was 3 for 4, and hopefully hell be 4 for 4 once we get to the season. Notes: Undrafted rookie Sean Baker had two interceptions and a fumble recovery for Tampa Bay. ... Redskins QB Jonathan Crompton, re-signed earlier in the day after being cut Monday, finished the game. ... Washington RB Tristan Davis left with a right knee injury. ... Schiano took the backup theme to the extreme by using his reserve long snapper, a decision that became apparent when Zack Pianalto sent a bouncer to the punter at the end of Tampa Bays first offensive series. Pianalto had two other low snaps, showing hes no threat to unseat regular snapper Andrew Economos. ... Replacement referee Jim Core contributed to the backup theme by checking a replay, announcing the call was upheld, then telling the crowd: Well look at it one more time.

I dont take probiotics but I do a ppreciate your perspective. Not one of 14 doctors over s ix years has ever suggested probiotics. Whats the big deal? R.M., Ocala Answer: Hmm, maybe you w ould not have needed 14 doctors if any one of them had warned you of the adverse health consequences of microflora deficiency? T hink allergies, irritable bowel, depression, hypothyr oidism, cancer and autoimmune disorders galore. The ramifications for poor p robiotic status cause disease from head to toe. There are m ore than 100 trillion microbes that live inside you thats more than the numb er of actual cells that form you into a human being. You are merely the sum of the b acteria inside you, so its critical that the good organi sms outnumber the bad ones, or else disease sets in. People who enjoy good health do so because of their strong immune system which powers up at birth, with an assortment of healthy bacteria obtained from mothers milk. Love your skin? You can thank your bacteria for that. Do you enjoy eating food without the discomfort of heartburn and bleeding ulcers? Thank your gut bugs because they are keeping the invaders (like H. pylori) at bay. Never get sick? Lets hear it for the bugs! By occupying various niches in the intricate landscape of our bodies, our resident microbes protect us from foreign bacteria, fungi and viruses. Many well-designed studies prove this. To improve the ratio of good to bad microbes I recommend taking probiotic supplements, sold by some physicians and at health food stores. Everyone associates probiotic supplements with gastrointestinal health and relief of constipation but probiotics are great for skin health, weight, staying healthy as we head into cough and cold season (hint hint), lifting depression and believe it or not, thyroid health. Yes, that healthy bacterial garden in your gut activates approximately 30 percent of your thyroid hormone, which in turn boosts energy and burns fat. We all have a unique flora fingerprint. No two are the same among humans. You can change your flora easily, with every meal. For example, eat a cinnamon bun and youve easily demolished millions of happy, healthy bacteria. All prescribed or over-the-counter medications reduce your probiotic bacterial stash, so Im disappointed to hear that not one of your 14 practitioners suggested a probiotic to restore gut flora. Y ou must put back what medication stole or youll pay with your health. W ith probiotic supplementation, results are immediate, usually within days to weeks. Oh, and yogurt is probably the worst way to take in probiotics since the organisms are likely dead by the time you eat it and the dairy provides a strong casein and lactose hit. And other stuff. Im picky about probiotics and this is a complex topic so I have put an extended version of this article at my website www.DearPharmacist.com/.

Eating bugs is a good idea Dear Pharmacist Suzy Cohen Metro Keeping the right level of good bacteria in your gut is key to good health. FRESNO, Calif. (AP) The rustic tent cabins of Yosemite National Park a favorite among families looking to rough it in one of the nations most majestic settings have become the scene of a public health crisis after two visitors died from a rodent-borne disease following overnight stays. On Tuesday, park officials sent letters and emails to 1,700 visitors who stayed in some of the dwellings in June, July and August, warning them that they may have been exposed to the disease that also caused two other people to fall ill. Those four people contracted hantavirus pulmonary syndrome after spending time in one of the 91 Signature Tent Cabins at Curry Village around the same time in June. The illness is spread by contact with rodent feces, urine and saliva, or by inhaling exposed airborne particles. After the first death, the park sanitized the cabins and alerted the public through the media that the cause might have been diseased mice in the park. However, officials did not know for sure the death was linked to Yosemite or the campsite until the Centers for Disease Control determined over the weekend that a second visitor, a resident of Pennsylvania, also had died. After every park tragedy, officials stress that Yosemite is a wilderness area and with it come some dangers. Were very concerned about visitors and employees, park spokesman Scott Gediman said. But we feel we are taking proactive steps in both cleaning the affected areas and in public education. But its absolutely impossible to eliminate all risk. On Sunday night, health officials with the National Park Service sent out an alert asking public health authorities to be on the watch for more potential rodent-related cases of acute respiratory failure. Y osemite receives 4 million tourists a year from around the world, and national park officials were trying to determine if the warning should be expanded to include foreign countries. Were discussing whether to do that and how to do that, said Dr. David W ong, chief of the epidemiology branch of the National Park Service Office of Public Health.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunAVON PARK South Florida State Colleges Dental Hygiene program recently received its reaccreditation from the American Dental Association Council on Dental Accreditation (ADACODA). Accreditation is voluntary, but if a student does not graduate from an accredited program, they are not eligible to take the licensing board exams, said Rebecca Sroda, associate dean of Allied Health. Accreditation means a program meets the highest level of national standards, that graduates are able to practice successfully and that patients are receiving the highest quality care. To be reaccredited, the program had to conduct and submit a self study detailing how it met the six standards established by the ADArequired for accreditation. The self-study included a review of the programs curriculum, faculty credentials, the programs strategic plan and student learning outcomes. Following the self-study, the ADAconducted an on-site visit where two representatives viewed various areas of SFSCs Dental Hygiene program and interviewed its faculty, students and college administrators. SFSCs Dental Hygiene program was granted 100 percent approval with no recommendations. Accreditation is awarded for seven years. The SFSC Dental Hygiene program was originally accredited in 2005. Its next reaccreditation process will begin in 2019. So many people have carpal tunnel that it seems as though it must be contagious. The real reason is that people are living longer and remaining active. Doctors are also getting better at diagnosing carpal tunnel and more research is being done on the natural history and treatment of carpal tunnel. Carpal tunnel is a compression of the nerve to the thumb, index, long and half the ring fingers located at the wrist. The symptoms are pins and needles or burning pain in the wrist that radiates to your fingers or up to your shoulder. It tends to be worse at night, may change your handwriting or weaken your grip. It can hurt to do anything requiring a prolonged grip such as driving, gripping a golf club or holding a book. In later stages, you may have trouble with fine motor skills such as small buttons or snaps. Thirty years ago, an active 80 year old was a rare sight. Now the active 80-plus are the most rapidly growing segment of the population. Popular activities like golf, pickleball and shuffleboard all require gripping. Interfering with leisure activities sends this group looking for answers to alleviate their pain. Nerve conductions (NCS) that measure the speed the nerve conducts impulses have become readily available as a diagnostic tool. The site where the speed slows is the place where the nerve is compressed. If only the sensory nerves are slow, the carpal tunnel (CTS) is mild. If both touch and motor are slow, the CTS is moderate. If both are very slow or the muscles in the hand fibrillate, the CTS is severe. Diabetic neuropathy (sick nerve) can also be detected by NCS. The test takes about 20 minutes and is done in the doctors office. Severe carpal tunnel means the nerve has some damage and surgery to relieve the pressure should be done as soon as practical. Ina recent study, a large group of moderate CTS patients were randomized in to one group who got surgery and another group who got alternative treatments such as splints, steroid injections and B vitamins. Over the next year, the entire surgery group got better and those that received no surgery group got worse. An older study followed a group of CTS patients to determine who got better and who needed surgery. Researchers then studied the two groups looking for statistically significant differences. These differences included age over 50, constant numbness or tingling, trigger fingers in the same hand, symptoms for more than six months or instantly positive Phalen test (numbness when the wrist is flexed). No patients with three of these symptoms got better without surgery. With two, only one third of the patients got better without surgery. Steroid injections help only in the 20to 30-year-old patients. Other risk factors are diabetes, uncontrolled thyroid problems, old wrist fractures and systemic arthritis like rheumatoid or gout. Just because your symptoms are not as severe does not mean the nerve is better. Just like you lose your voice with too much shouting, the nerve may tire and not annoy you as much. If you think you have CTS that may need surgery, nerve conductions (NCS) are the best way to stage the severity and pick the best treatment for you. Make an appointment to find out if your pain could be eradicated with treatment. Stay tuned to the next column for changes in treatment and new ways to improve outcomes. Dr. Diana D.

Guest Column Dr. Diana Carr Does a strange smell find its way to your nose seconds after your shoes come off? Do people wrinkle their n oses in disgust when your bare feet are exposed? Smelly feet, called bromhidrosis, can be embarrassing and uncomf ortable. Excessive sweating of the feet is called h yperhidrosis. Its more common in men than in women, and m ore common in younger people. Most peoples feet perspire during exercise or in warm weather; if you have b romhidrosis and hyperhidrosis, however, youll notice excessive sweating and smelly feet year round, even when you are not e ngaged in strenuous activity. Some people sweat so much that their feet may s lip around inside their shoes. Feet have more sweat glands than any other part of the body. Feet smell when the foot sweats a nd the sweat are trapped inside shoes, preventing evaporation. It is the interaction of these two factors along with bacteria that c ause the smell. The bacteria produce isovaleric acid, which causes the odor. Often, excessive sweating of the feet is diagnosed based on your reporting of symptoms and a physical exam of the feet. Apodiatrist can also do a starch-iodine test to confirm the diagnosis. First, an iodine solution is applied to the bottom of the feet. After the solution has dried, cornstarch is sprinkled over the area. The treated area turns dark blue if excessive sweat is present Treatment includes: Shower regularly with anti-bacterial soap. Use foot lotions and sprays specifically designed to keep feet dry. Change your shoes and socks often. Wear wicking socks that draw the moisture away from your feet instead of trapping it. Synthetic blends are designed to wick moisture away from the skin and work best to keep the feet dry. One hundred percent cotton socks absorb moisture, but do not wick it away from the skin and frequently lead to blisters, so they should be avoided. Rotate your shoes (especially athletic shoes). Use insoles that can be changed frequently to prevent the odor from staying in your shoe. Wear sandals during warm weather. Launder, disinfect or discard foul-smelling shoes. If foot odor excessive sweating persists, consult a podiatrist. Treatment options are tailored to your symptoms. Prescription roll-on antiperspirants may be applied directly to the feet. Atechnique called iontophoresis, which uses water to conduct a mild electrical current through the skin, has been found helpful for people with sweaty feet. Botox injections can temporarily control excessive sweating of the feet. (The effect generally lasts for about six to nine months.) Severe cases of sweaty feet may be treated with a surgical procedure called a sympathectomy, which interrupts the nerve signals that tell the body to sweat excessively. Apodiatrist can help you control this embarrassing condition. Podiatrist Olga Garcia Luepschen and the Gentle Foot Care Center are located on US 27.

C M Y K By JUSTIN POPE APEducation WriterAs college students return to campus in the coming weeks, theyll be showered in the usual handouts of coupons, condoms and credit c ards. But some schools are also giving students what a growing body of research reveals could make a huge difference in their college c areers: ear plugs, sleep shades and napping lessons. College health officials are finally realizing that healthy sleep habits are a potential miracle drug for much of w hat ails the famously frazzled modern American coll ege student: anxiety, depression, physical health problems and more than most s tudents realize academic troubles. Some studies have f ound students getting adequate sleep average a full letter grade higher than those who dont. But adolescent biorhythms m ake it hard enough for college students to get the sleep t hey need, a recommended nine hours. On top of that, campus life turns out to r esemble a giant laboratory experiment designed for m aximum sleep deprivation: irregular schedules, newfound freedom, endless social i nteraction, loud and crowded housing, late-night exercise and food washed down by b ooze, coffee energy drinks. Campuses pulsing with energ y at midnight by mid-afternoon resemble Zombie U., with students dozing off in library chairs, on yoga mats and even in coffee shops. T echnology isnt helping, with wireless Internet adding to the 24/7 distractions and students sleeping with their smart phones on. That likely helps explain data showing college students got about e ight hours of sleep in the 1960s and s, seven by the 80s, and, according to more recent surveys, closer to six these days. Campaigning last week, even President Barack O bama told some students at an Ohio State University diner that he assumed you guys have arranged it so you dont have really early morni ng classes. No such luck. Actually, I failed that, one student replied, telling the president he had one at 8 a.m. the next day. Now, some counselors and health officials are trying to get the message out in creative ways. At tiny Hastings College in Nebraska, student peer educators plop down a bed in the middle of the student union, dress themselves in pajamas, and talk to passers-by about sleep. Macalester College in Minnesota publishes a nap map listing the pros and cons of various campus snooze sites. And many schools are offering seminars on napping (basic lesson: short naps work better). The University of Louisville is even planning a campus-wide flash nap think of a flash mob but with sleeping, not dancing later in the school year (We have to arrange in it advance so our public safety folks know its not an epidemic of something, said director of health promotion Karen Newton). Still, given the scope of sleeping problems, whats surprising is that such efforts are exceptional. Major, campus-wide campaigns appear rare or non-existent. Experts say professors (and doctors) arent always good sleep role models. As for deans and administrators, many seem hesitant to tell parents whove just dropped $50,000 on tuition that the big push on campus this year will be for everyone to sleep more. While awareness is growing, at most schools sleep efforts amount to a few posters on campus or perhaps a few lines in a quickly forgotten talk during orientation week. While about threequarters of college students have indicated occasional sleep problems, the latest National College Health Assessment found about the same proportion reported receiving no information from their school about sleep (though its possible, in their sleepiness, some forgot). The average student is functioning with a clinical sleep disorder, said LeeAnn Hamilton, assistant director of health promotion and preventive services at the University of Arizona, describing research conducted on students there. They average about 6.5 hours per night (though students tend to over-report in such surveys). But sleep time and quality measurements declined over the course of the academic year, while anxiety, depression and conflict with family, friends and roommates all rose. As described by junior Sara Campbell, residence hall life at UAmakes it hard even for students trying to sleep constant late-night chattering, visitors coming and going, early morning cleaning crews running their vacuums. She aims to be asleep by12:30 or so but was dumbfounded to find girls on her hall regularly pulling allnighters for papers and exams basically, academic suicide, the research shows. Not to speak bad of them, but a lot of them are freshmen and just decided to wait till the last minute, she said. Her big challenge was managing with a roommate who tries to keep earlier hours; this year the pair are moving off-campus together where theyll have separate bedrooms. Still, Campbell is applying what shes learned about sleep as a psychology major. This year, shes arranged her schedule to have classes and work start at 8 a.m. every day of the week. That will be tough, but commits her to avoiding the destructive pattern trapping many college students getting up early one day, then sleeping late the next. Regularity is key, Campbell said. You can pick a schedule here and have a different time to get up every day, but going to bed at a different time every night, it wears on your body. College mental health professionals are increasingly asking students about sleep right away, finding its often the low-lying fruit for helping studentss. When you find depression, even when you find anxiety, when you scratch the surface 80 to 90 percent of the time you find a sleep problem as well, said University of Delaware psychologist Brad Wolgast. Many students who think they have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder are often just sleep-deprived. Some simple steps to improve sleep hygiene are usually far preferable to prescribing drugs like Ritalin or Adderrall. (Wolgast is also seeing more students whove been prescribed sleeping pills, which he says usually harm sleep patterns more than help). On a campus theyre dealing with alcohol, cocaine, marijuana, Ridalin abuse, sexual assault, Wolgast said. In comparison, sleep looks like a small problem. But the truth is I could wave a magic wand and change everybodys sleep, there would be fewer problems with pretty much everything else. www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, August 31, 2012Page 7B disney on ice; 5.542"; 9.5"; Black; disney on ice rockin ever afte; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 2 2 6 6 9 9 9 9 E.O.

C M Y K God knows everything about our lives before we are b orn. He knows what our names will be, how many hairs are on our heads, and who our parents will be. He also knows everything in t his life that we will ever go through. Just think, as you are reading this, He knows what you are wearing and what y ou are feeling right now. Psalm 139:1-7 reminds us of how well He knows us. O Lord, You have searched me and known me. You know my sitting down and my risi ng up; you understand my thoughts afar off. You comp rehend my path and my lying down, and are acquainted with all my ways. F or there is not a word on my tongue, but behold, O L ord, You know it altogether.You have hedged me behind and before, and laid your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful f or me; it is high, I cannot attain it. Aswe reflect on the sovereignty of God, lets ask ourselves, What does it m ean for our identity to be truly in Christ? Id like to c onsider a few passages from Gods word along with my personal experience, e specially the pursuit of my masters degree in education. After I completed my mast ers degree in education, there was a time I also wante da Ph.D. These may not seem like bad plans. As a matter of fact, many would consider this to be quite an achievement in life. Personally, I began questioning my life more and wondered if there was something I was missing. I also began to wonder what the meaning behind it all was. Somewhere in the midst of t his, I fell deeply in love with the Lord, and I wanted t o have a huge powerful ministry and go to seminary to get yet another degree. After completing my masters degree, I was burned o ut and tired of teaching. I thought I would never want to teach again. The Lord gave me a job working at a pre-school for two years that was very difficult. I was bitter and angry because of where the Lord had me when I first started. After all, I thought I was supposed to be teaching as a college professor by now. However, through this experience at the pre-school, I began to realize what a ministry truly was and what the concept of obedience means. I also grew in the Lord over these two years at a faster rate than I had in my entire 36 years of living. As my heart grew for God over the two years of working in a pre-school, I developed a great love for children again. I realized I wanted to be a teacher again. However, the Lord would not give me a teaching job in a classroom setting. He gave me something even better. He gave me a teaching job at home with one child, my only son. I must admit, it is not an easy task, but obedience brings blessing, more humility, more character and a stronger faith. Think about how many times I used the words I want in this short story of myself. Does having a masters degree or a newspaper column, one student or many students, make me more or less loved by God? Is it possible that the question we should ask is, what does God want or what would edify Christ? The truth is God loves us no matter what. He doesnt look at our performance or how clean and organized we can keep our house. He cares about our heart. When we are sweeping our floor and washing dishes, does that make us any less important than the person who is traveling in a commercial jet to Paris? He loves us still the same. Does it matter if we have only two close friends rather than many? We are still adored. We should put our trust in Christ alone. Psalm 20:6, 7 says, some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will remember the name of the Lord our God. This verse alone tells us that God wants to be the center of our lives. He wants to be the King of our hearts. I encourage to you to take some time and reflect on your life. Are you discouraged because you are not where you think you should be in this season of life? Have you considered that maybe you are where God wants to you to be at this present time? I thank God for the education and the abilities that He has given me, but most of all I thank Him for teaching me that Christ-like character and humility are more important than my education or past experiences. Furthermore, Im glad to know how much He adores me and that He knows the kind of job I should have. When you start thinking that you are not as important to God because you dont have what others have or you feel like you rank low on the list because you only clean toilets for a living, tell yourself the truth with the following verses to remind yourself where to place your identity. I am Gods Child (John 1:12). I have been bought with a price: I belong to God (I Corinthians 12:27). I cannot be separated from the love of God (Romans 8:3539). Leslie Deese is a Sebring resident.

(AP) U.S. District Judge Sandy Mattice has declined to stop the Hamilton County Commissions prayers before meetings while a lawsuit is being heard. Tommy Coleman and Brandon Jones filed suit in June after commissioners refused their request to hold a moment of silence instead of prayers. They claim the prayers promote Christianity in violation of the First Amendments Establishment Clause. On Wednesday, Mattice denied a request for a preliminary injunction. The commission adopted a new prayer policy on July 3, after the suit was filed. Under that policy ministers from all different faiths will be asked to offer prayers. The plaintiffs call the policy a sham, implying that it is merely legal cover for Hamilton County to select speakers who will inevitably advance the Christian faith. Mattice says in his opinion that offering prayers before a legislative body deliberates is not always unconstitutional. It is only unconstitutional if the prayers proselytize, advance one religion or disparage another, or otherwise affiliate the government with a specific faith, such as Christianity. But Mattice ruled that the new policy has not been in place long enough to determine whether it does any of those things, although court records do show that invocations in July were offered in Jesusname and in the name of Jesus Christ, our savior, your son, and our only hope, in Jesusname. Mattice wrote that in adopting the new prayer policy, the commission has assumed on its own behalf and on behalf of the citizens and taxpayers of Hamilton County the responsibility of ensuring that its policy is implemented in a manner that respects both the rights of its citizens and the commands of the First Amendment. Whether it will Federal judge wont issue temporary halt to prayer

C M Y K By PETER SVENSSON APTechnology WriterNEWYORK High-definition TVs roughly quadrupled the resolution of the sets that came before them. Now, the industry is poised to do it again. By December, U.S. stores will sell a TVset with four times the resolution of todays best HDTVs, Sony Corp. said Wednesday. The set will measure 84 inches on the diagonal, making the screen area four times as large as the common 42-inch set. Executives said Sony will reveal the price of the set next week. There is, for now, very little video content available that can take advantage of the higher resolution. With some work and know-how, a computer connected to the set can display video in the ultra-HD K resolution. The set will also do its best to upscale TV, DVD and Blu-ray movies, so they look better. Phil Molyneux, chief operating officer of Sony Electronics, said the situation was no different from the launch of the cassette tape, the CD or the DVD. We always get this question when we launch beautiful new technology: Wheres the content? Molyneux told journalists at an event in New York. Did we bring the content to market? Yes, we did. The exact resolution of the set is 3,840 by 2,160 pixels. Its known as K because it has nearly 4,000 pixels on the horizontal edge. That compares with 1,920 by 1,080 pixels in p sets. More pixels allow TVmakers to make bigger screens without compromising sharpness. Sony makes digital projectors operating at 4K resolution for movie theaters. The TVindustry has been looking for a technology that will get consumers to upgrade their HDTVsets. Sales are slumping after an initial wave of upgrades from standard-definition sets, and 3-D sets attract only a small number of consumers. Apple Inc. has slowly been quadrupling the resolution of its devices, starting with the iPhone 4 two years ago. This year, it released iPads and MacBooks with ultra-highresolution screens. www.newssun.comNews-SunFriday, August 31, 2012Page 11B Fairmount Cinema; 1.736"; 6"; Black; -; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 2 2 9 9 1 1 1 1 DIVERSIONS DearAbby: My father died eight years ago. Mother couldnt afford to bury him at the time, so he was cremated. Mom asked me to keep his ashes until her time was up so they could be buried together. I have had them ever since. It makes me feel like he is still with me, that I have not totally lost him. However, over the last year, my brothers and sisters have led my mother to believe that I wont respect her wishes to have them buried together when the time comes. She is pressuring me to bury him now. It hurts me that my family could even think I would take that away from my mother. To this day, my siblings say mean things about Dad, claiming he was a terrible father and husband. Im a lot younger than the rest of them, so its possible I never saw the bad side of him. The father I knew was a caring, loving man, and it drives me crazy to hear my siblings speak ill of him. They dont remember his birthday, the date of his death or even how long ago it was. Abby, I dont know what to do. If I go ahead and bury my dad's ashes now, I feel I will be losing him completely. Please help me. I feel so lost. Sad and Misunderstood Daughter DearDaughter: Perhaps there is a way to satisfy everybody. Before returning your fathers ashes to your mother and siblings for burial, take a small portion to keep for yourself. Your feelings are not all that unusual and contrary to popular belief, not all ashes are scattered or buried. Sometimes they are retained for decades by family members who are not yet ready to part with them. DearAbby: About a year ago, I began a part-time job for extra cash. My manager and I developed an attraction for each other that soon led to a sexual relationship. The problem is that hes married with two children, and he is significantly older than me. I know now that this has to end. I have no emotional ties to him, but I think he is starting to care for me. I cant quit the job because a family member got it for me, and it would seem suspicious if I quit. Please respond soon because I am trying desperately to avoid being alone with him, and its becoming more and more difficult. How do I end the affair and remain on decent terms with this man? Needs a Quick Out DearNeeds: Its difficult to remain on decent terms after there has been indecent exposure, but tell your manager your conscience demands that the hankypanky stop. Then, if he tries to get you alone, tell him, Nothing doing Ive turned over a new leaf. Im sure hell find a way to handle the rejection. If it breaks his heart, he can seek comfort from his wife, from whom he shouldnt have strayed in the first place. DearAbby: Im going into junior high. Im a straight-Astudent and get my homework and projects done. But Im not that organized. I always put my assignments away, but when I need them, theyre never there. My mom complains to me about it and calls me a troll. My room isnt so hot, either. What can I do? The Troll in St. Pete DearTroll: The time to get organized is now. Begin by cleaning your room and making sure you have a study area that is not messy. After that, you should always put your projects and completed assignments in one spot, and they wont be lost. Youll be able to find them easily once you have only one place to look. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

When to bury dads ashes causes family flare-up Dear Abby By CHRISTYLEMIRE APMovie CriticIf you can accept the notion that Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf and Jason Clarke could be brothers during this century or a ny other, you might be able to immerse yourself in the artfully pulpy allure of Lawless, based on the true story of the bootlegging Bondurants. Director John Hillcoats ultra-violent d rama plays like a hot, sweaty, delusional fever dream and is similarly fitful. It can be visceral and operatic, b eautiful and brutal but also slow and overlong. The look and the sound of it are the most effective parts, and the m ost intrinsically tied: Singer-songwriter Nick Cave, a longtime friend and c ollaborator of fellow Australian Hillcoat (on The Proposition and The Road), wrote the script and cow rote the score, so theres a peculiar kind of dark flavor, humor and musicali ty to the cadence of the dialogue.. Lawless is based on The Wettest County in the World, Matt Bondurants fictional tale of his grandfather, Jack, and his brothers, moons hine masters who kept the Virginia hills good nliquored up during P rohibition. The eldest, Howard (Clarke), is a volatile and frequently inebriated veteran of the first World W ar. The middle brother, Forrest (Hardy), is the quietly commanding l eader of both the business and the family. And then theres Jack (LaBeouf), the youngest whos eager to prove hims elf. Hes the most ambitious, which makes him the most dangerous. The Bondurant boys find their tidy little operation threatened when a corrupt Chicago lawman named Charlie R akes (Guy Pearce) swoops in to shut them down. Hes as nasty as he is nattily dressed, and Pearce once again seems to relish playing this type of precise villain. Also entering the brothers l ives, seemingly because the story needed some sort of female figure, are t wo very different women. Maggie (Jessica Chastain) arrives out of n owhere one day from The Big City with a Secret Past and immediately starts functioning as both the waitress at the brothersrestaurant/headquarters and Forrests obligatory love interest. B ertha (Mia Wasikowska) is the modest and pious daughter of the towns preacher who catches Jacks eye which makes no sense, given that hes a wannabe gangster with flashy tastes. Lawless allows neither of these fine, versatile actresses to display what they can do fully. It is mainly about the men, and the primal ways in which they survive and seek revenge. Yet it also squanders the formidable presence of Gary Oldman in just a few scenes as the big-city mobster who Jack aspires to be like one day. Still, there is Hardy, who is always hulking and intense and impossible to stop watching. Sure, his accent is a little thick and folksy but he seems to get the melody that exists within the script and at least you can understand him better here than you could when he had that contraption strapped to his face to play Bane in The Dark Knight Rises. As LaBeouf continues efforting to show hes a grown-up now and can do serious character work, Hardy shows up and simply dominates. Lawless a visceral, fitful and violent fever dream Movie Review Lawless Rating: R (strong bloody violence, language and some sexuality/nudity) Running time: 110 minutes Review: (of 4) Courtesy Richard Foreman, Jr./MCT Jason Clarke (from left) Tom Hardy and Shia LaBeouf star in Lawless. Sony to sell ultra-HD K TV set in US stores LOS ANGELES Lindsay Lohan will not be prosecuted for a burglary at a home where she had been a houseguest, prosecutors determined Tuesday. The decision came after Los Angeles police detectives presented a potential felony burglary case against the actress and two men who were reportedly at the Hollywood Hills home of a longtime acquaintance after several items went missing earlier this month. Prosecutors cited lack of evidence to prove Lohan was involved in the thefts at the home. The items taken were described as keys, cash, sunglasses and a credit card holder. The homeowner, businessman Sam Magid, is an acquaintance of Lohan and later told authorities that he did not want to pursue a case. Lindsay is glad this matter has been cleared up so she can focus on her upcoming projects, her spokesman Steve Honig said in a statement Tuesday afternoon. One of the men police interviewed was Lohans assistant, who told authorities that he, the actress and another man went into the home early Aug. 18. Some items were taken, but the assistant refused to say who stole them, according to a memo rejecting the charges. We do not have sufficient evidence to prove this case beyond a reasonable doubt, the prosecution memo states. The document also noted that none of the missing items were found in the possession of Lohan or the two men who were believed to be at the house on the day of the burglary. Lohan wont face burglary charges

The top five female cat names are Chloe, Lucy, Cleo, Princess and Angel.7.Why do cats scratch furniture?Cats scratch furniture to define their territory by using the glands in the pads of their feet to create a scent mark. Cats also need to scratch to pull off the old outer nail of the claw and expose a sharp, smooth one. Cat owners can trim their pets nails every two to three weeks to help protect furniture (and their arms!). Scratching posts can help distract cats from shredding a favorite couch. 8.Are there health benefits to owning a cat?Yes. Picking up a cat has a calming effect and causes a persons blood pressure to drop and heart rate to slow.

When they are young, cats age quickly relative to human years. Acat thats 6 months old is equal to about 10 years old in human years. As they get older, the aging process slows down, so that after age 2, every cat year is equal to about four human years.10.Does a cats tail serve a purpose?The tail helps a cat balance, which is especially useful when the animal is climbing a tree or walking on a narrow railing. It also helps a cat to orient itself when it makes any abrupt change in direction. You can tell a lot about a cats mood when you look at its tail. When a cats tail is held high it shows the animal has dignity. When the tail is in a lower state it means the cat is relaxed. When a cats tail twitches, it can mean its annoyed, but it can also mean its interested or excited.

The whiskers act as a sort of antennae for cats, helping them measure the space around them and detect objects in the dark. Whiskers also indicate a cats mood. If they are fanned straight out to the side of the face, the cat is relaxed and happy. If they are pointed backward, flat against the cats face, the animal is angry or afraid. 12.Why do cats usually land on their feet?Cats have a rightingreflex that gives them the ability to right themselves when they fall. Ac at instinctually turns it head and front torso to the ground, and its tail helps it align its back with the rest of the body before it lands. The cat arches its back and stretches its legs to reduce the impact, and the paw pads and leg joints help absorb the shock to the legs.13.Why do some cats go crazy for catnip?The oil nepetalactone in the leaves of catnip sets off most cats, although kittens and some adult cats do not respond to the herb.
