Twin pillars are comprised of two giant wheels perhaps 6 feet in diameter, wide enough to float on the water. Two seats are suspended between the wheels. The craft is pedal powered. It comes equipped with a water canon. For $12, two people can play for a half an hour. Vickie Kerklin, who has two grown daughters, was laughing and puffing a bit when she was done.

TALLAHASSE (AP Energy Florida is seeking a 6 percent rate reduction for residential customers in 2013 due to lower fuel and purchasedp ower costs. The St. Petersburg-based utility filed its request Friday with the Florida Public Service Commission. The proposal would cut the overall bill for 1,000 kilowatt hours per month, which is about average, by $7.44 down to $115.75. The reduction would include a $129 million refund to customers the commission already has approved for 2013 as part of a prior rate settlement. It purchases power from other sources to cover shortfalls including those resulting from the extended shutdown of a nuclear reactor in Crystal River.

Back in the 1970s, said Dave V anderlaan, who was one of the organizers at the beginning, a cycling club in West Palm Beach organized a 100-mile ride to Sebring. It became popular andw as held every year. His wife Debra sat beside him, n odding in agreement. This was back when bicycle riding was hard core, not cushy like it is now, Mike Purdy added. Purdy and his wife Joanh ave been coming to Sebring to take part in the tour for 25 years. T here were no rest stops, no mechanics, no water stations, no support or following vans. Traffic on the way north became increasingly dangerous over the years, however. In 1982, in the dark early m orning, a car half rammed into the crowd knocking dozens of r iders off the road. No one was hurt, but organizers decided it was time to find a safer route.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunSEBRING Tayna T aylor and Betty Simmons enjoy helping teenagers, e specially those who are facing difficult situations. Both women have been active inC hoices Pregnancy Care Center, assisting women who h ave experienced unplanned pregnancies. Choices provides free p regnancy tests, maternity clothes, childbirth and childcare education, adoption education, cribs, and baby clothes for young women inn eed. Choices also offers the support of doulas, trained assistants who provide comfort and support during labor and delivery. I n 2009, Taylor called Cathy Brown, director of C hoices, and made an appointment to discuss possible volunteer activities. How can I help? Taylor asked. B rown, delighted by her willingness to serve in any position needed, quickly a ssessed Taylors background and discovered that she had a love for finance. Taylors background in finance and her position at a local finan-c ial institution made her a perfect choice to serve as treasurer of Choices. Taylors boundless enthusiasm for helping youngm others prompted to her seek additional opportunities for s ervice. Whenever there was a need at Choices, whether it related to finances or not,T aylor and her husband gladly offered their services. F rom September 2009 to June 2012, Taylor supported young women who were faci ng unplanned pregnancies. Choices would like to thank Taylor for her support and congratulate her on her new position with Youth forC hrist. Taylor will still be working with the youth of Highlands County, but she will be serving in a different capacity. T o fill the need for treasurer at Choices, Simmons, of P rofessional Bookkeeping System, joined the board of directors this year. S immons has been an active member of the pregn ancy center since the very beginning. With her years of service, s he will provide a smooth transition as treasurer of Choices. Brown and the other members of the board want toe xpress their appreciation to Simmons for filling this important role.

Dr. Joni Jones SebringNo difference between Obama, RomneyE ditor: T he Republican establishment picked Mitt Romney for their presidential cand idate. This came after the national G OPdid everything in their power to stifle the voices of those Republicans who had different views. I f you are a social conservative who supported Rick Santorum, the mainstream GOPwill pay no more than lip service to the issues you care about. This just to convince you to support a candidate that is not any different from the current President. If you are a fiscal conservative who supported Ron Paul, you can forget seeing real spending reductions. They will talk a good game but spending and federal government bloat will continueu nabated. When you go vote for R omney because the GOPhas you convinced that he is different from Obama, I can assure you that the chuckle you hear from Wall Street and Washington IS directed at you. So this is what we get: Achoice of a liberal who has a long record of pushing for gun control laws. One who will continue to spend us into bankruptcy. One who is an outspoken supporter of the Patriot Act and the T.S.A. freedom fondle at the airports. One who passed a mandatory government healthcare law. Or Obama. As a lifelong republican, I cant stand it. I am angry that this is what the party of Ronald Reagan has become. This choice is no choice, so I will choose the third party candidate who is politically a constitutional conservative. Some Republicans will say this attitude will get Obama re-elected. To this I say who cares as there is no real difference between Romney and Obama anyway. Welcome to Presidential politics in the 21st century. Dana B. Orr Avon ParkSome good places to eatEditor: Judging by recent letters to the editor, many Highlands County residents are stressed out. I can understand why they are unhappy when some politicians propose turning Medicare over to the insurance companies and turning Social Security over to Wall Street. I suggest we take a break from the news and take someone you love out to dinner. Here are my suggestions: Try something new like Taste of India, our new Indian restaurant at 3545 U.S. 27 South in Sebring. My international development work took me more than 30 countries and lots of good Indian food. Now I can get wonderful Lamb Vindaloo or Shrimp Madras at home. To get a broad sample, try the lunch buffet. As a young man, I lived in a impoverished Mexican village for two years helping to build a school. I developed a taste for the real Mexican food of los campesinos. In Highlands County, real Mexican food is found at Tagueria Merlo, a restaurant and market at 1004 W. Main St. in Avon Park, where you can pick up a piata after enjoying huevos rancheros ($5.25 The menu has photographs for non Spanish speakers. In Mexico City, the Paseo De La Reforma is their version of New Yorks 5th Avenue. If you want Paseo De La Reforma standard Mexican food, you will have to drive up to Azteca in Winter Haven. On Sunday afternoons, a Mariachi Band in traditional dress wanders around playing for you. If you want good basic food at moderate prices, Highlands County has many choices, but my favorite is the Olympicat 504 U.S. 27 North in Avon Park because they have the best Greek salad in town and super friendly staff. The most creative chef in Sebring is at the Sun N Lake Island View Restaurant at the second circle on Sun N Lake Boulevard. If you like Italian food, drive past the chains and try Maken The Dough at 312 Interlake Blvd. in Lake Placid. We would go there just for the in store-baked bread. So what is missing? The big omission is a first-class Chinese restaurant. And I am still looking for someplace that makes gazpacho with fresh tomatoes. James Upchurch SebringMakes senseEditor: As to the nomination of Gov. Romney as the GOPcandidate, I am remined of the quote by Carl Rove: God Bless the ignorant rednecks. They dont make enough money to benefit from any of our (GOP they support us unquestioningly, so long as we make sure that they can have their guns. Makes perfect sense. Preston H. Colby Sebring Good. Aserious national debate over the programs future is overdue. Medicare provided health c are last year for more than 40 million seniors and more t han 8 million people with disabilities. Its $560 billion budget made it the third moste xpensive federal program behind Social Security and d efense. And Medicare spending is galloping ahead of the rest of the budget. Its share of federal outlays has roughlyq uadrupled since 1970. ... Ryans entry in the campaign has thrown a spotlight on Medicare because of the plan he crafted as House Budget Committee chairman.U nder that plan Americans who become eligible for the p rogram starting in 2022 would be given a set amount of money to pay for privatei nsurance or traditional Medicare. D emocrats and some independent budget analysts say the plan would leave seniors paying thousands more dollars a year out of pocket fort heir health care, but Republicans say more private sector competition would f inally put the brakes on rising costs. President Barack Obamas rival plan for Medicare, called for under his 2010h ealth-reform law, will reduce cost growth in the program by about $700 billion over the next decade by paring payments to health insurers and providers.R epublican charges that the president is cutting M edicare are misleading; the programs overall budget will keep going up, and some oft he savings are already paying for additional benefits for s eniors. But Democrats who have been hammering on Ryans plan are often guilty of their own misdirection, leadingt heir audiences to believe his plan would apply to todays seniors, instead of those who b ecome eligible for the program in a decade. And its hard to get most of the critics to concede that Medicares cost is, as Ryan rightlyi nsists, on an unsustainable trajectory. Heres hoping both sides will do a better job of leveling with the American people about Medicare in ther emaining weeks of the campaign. A nd heres hoping Floridians will be paying close attention not just the3 .4 million who are beneficiaries of Medicare now, but t he millions more who are counting on a strong yet financially sustainable program in the future. A n editorial from the Orlando Sentinel. National debate over future of Medicare is long overdue Re publican presidential candidate Mitt Romneys pick of Paul Ryan a s his running mate has locked up a spot for Medicare among the top issues in this years campaign. I will admit that when I heard that the Republicans w ere holding their national convention in Tampa this y ear that I seriously considered attending. After all, going to a political convention is one of those thingso n my bucket list. I mentioned this idea to a few people close to me, people who care about myw ell-being. Their nearly universal response was to question my sanity. Did I r eally want to subject myself to the outright c haos that makes up a p olitical convention? For the record, Don didt say it was crazy. He did think I should have some kind of plan, and reminded me that hotel accommodations would be hard to c ome by the longer I dithered about going. My enthusiasm dimmed a little, especially when I realized that since I was not a Republican I might n ot have access. Yes, I am technically a member of t he media. But I had no idea how to get my hands on press credentials, and I suspect anyone willing to g ive them to me might have their sanity quest ioned as well. When Tropical Storm Isaac lumbered in, I decided that perhaps even God was trying to tell me that this was not the time to attend the convention. I consoled myself with the fact that a) there will be other opportunities, and b) watching it on television would give me a good look at the thing without being jostled by a crowd or maybe cornered by protesters. So I spent a good part of Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights watching this long gala and infomercial for presidential nominee Mitt Romney. I didnt seen the whole thing I have this thing called a life, and it has at times kept me away from the television. But I did catch a bit of it. Of course, this convention is meant to put the Republicans in the best possible light. Its also meant to take digs at their Democratic rivals and speaker after speaker took their shots. The main speakers didnt get up to the podium until later in the evening, which meant staying up past my bedtime. So if I was cranky at you this week, thats why Since I hadnt seen much o f her, I was glad to catch Ann Romneys speech. She tried very hard to make herh usband appear less distant then some have accused h im of being. I found I related to her very well, being a mother of boys, a lbeit only two as opposed to her five. Then there was Paul Ryan. According to my research, hes 42 years old.H ow is it he barely looks old enough to shave? His speech was well received and took on the president without being nasty atl east in my opinion. Finally, Mitt Romney c ame up. He sketched out a five-point plan to createj obs, something that the Republicans are emphasizing in their campaign. It was light on the details. Mostly he talked aboutg eneralities, trying to rev up the party. Time will tell if he was successful. Afew random thoughts to close out the conven-t ion: I felt very sorry for Clint Eastwood, whose speech came off as odd rather than substantial. But at his age I guess you can do what you want when asked to speak at the last minute. I saw a picture on Facebook showing the debt ticker that ran at the convention over a sign with the phrase We Built It. Funny, but it turns out that its fake. Research is your friend. The convention looked like standing room only. I saw a variety of human beings there, and the part of me who hates crowds is glad I stayed away. Thats it. Next will be the Democratic convention, which I will watch so I can comment on it. Hopefully they will run things at reasonable hours. Or be prepared for a cranky columnist.

C M Y K TALLAHASSEE (AP Only one more case of a virulent strain of tuberculosis has been found among homeless people in Jacksonville since efforts to identify potential victims were stepped up, Floridas surgeon general said Friday. Health officials say that brought the number of homeless people suffering from that TB strain to 16 in Duval County and 20 statewide this year. Dr. John Armstrong also said 311 others have tested positive in the last six weeks and are being treated for latent TB infections, which are not contagious, but no other clusters of the strain have been found elsewhere in the state. This is a small cluster that we found because of our intense interest in eliminating tuberculosis in the state of Florida, Armstrong said during a teleconference with reporters. Laboratory technologists can obtain DNAfingerprints for the TB bacteria. Thus, we can track where it goes very, very quickly and we can, if you will, smother the germ, Armstrong said. So there is no issue for safety of people in Duval County and Jacksonville and for visitors. Armstrong said the rate of latent TB infections among about 3,000 homeless people in Jacksonville is 10 percent, which is consistent with the national average among the homeless. Some lawmakers criticized the Department of Health, which Armstrong heads, after media reports questioned why the agency failed to warn the public about the strain.

Tour of Sebring continues to grow in 30th year Only 1 more TB case found among Fla. homeless Associated PressT AMPA Florida Sen. Marco Rubio had his biggest moment in the spotlight Thursday night as a rising Republican star, andb y most accounts, he nailed it. Yes, there was the flub he mixed up his words and said Republicans chosem ore government when he was introducing Mitt Romney as the partysn ominee for president but his message of less government hit home withm any party faithful. The 41-year-old conserv ative and son of Cuban immigrants successfully wooed delegates from WestV irginia to Texas this week, with many saying they t hink he could run for president someday. Rubio didnt get the vice-presidential nomination as many, including for-m er Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, had said they hoped. But he d id get a tremendous boost for his future in the eventsl eading up to and including his n ationally televised speech. He was seemingl y everywhere, including places where you dont often find Republicans, such as Jon Stewarts The DailyS how and an interview with Black Entertainment Television. And his speech was widely praised as an inspirational message aboutt he opportunities that America can provide. In his c ase, it was his parents who worked 16-hour days tend-i ng bar and cleaning hotel rooms so that one day he could stand on a podium and introduce a presidential nominee. Hes probably the first on the list of the next generation, said Bruce Slover, 58, of Houston, a Texas delegate at the convention.H e said Rubios speaking spot was a launching pad for a presidential run. Thats kind of the mantle. Youre up next. And in Texas, were thrilled to death. Floridians are familiar with Rubios life story, a feel-good account of parents who left Cuba to provide their children with a better life in the United States. Rubio was born in Miami and has often talked about how his parents worked hard to allow him to have opportunities they never had, and that America is the only country where a story like his can happen. s got a terrific pers onality, which is very nice. Theres a charisma there, said Barbara Fish, 65, a delegate from Parkersburg, W.Va., who said shee xpects him to be among the next Republican group to seek the presidency. ere really thinking that he can be on the short list H s had a rapid rise in Florida politics. He was a city commissioner in WestM iami before being elected to the state House, where he became the first Cuban-A merican House speaker. Two years after leaving o ffice, he was mocked for thinking he could beat popular incumbent Gov.C harlie Crist to win the 2010 Senate race. When the r ace began, Crist was raising $13 for every $1 donated to Rubio. AQuinnipiac University poll just before both men got in the races howed 54 percent of Republicans preferred Crist a nd only 8 percent would support Rubio. But Rubiou sed a conservative message to win over t ea partiers, then Florida Republicans and eventually the W ashington establishment. Crist bolted the party to run as an independent and was soundly beaten by Rubio in a three-w ay race. Not that there havent been bumps in the road for Rubio. In his newly released memoir AnA merican Son, he addresses past criticism of himself f or charging personal items on Republican Party creditc ards to the beginning of foreclosure proceedings on a house he co-owned. But delegates this week were focusing this week onh is positives: telegenic, charismatic and a gifted orator. His Hispanic roots are also regarded as a plus for a party thats realizingi t has to better appeal to such voters after candidates hammered away at concerns about illegal immigrants, many Latino, during the presidential primary season. s got a message of hope for this country. He understands job creation, he understands that limited government is the role that we need for our lives, said delegate and Tennessee state Rep. Ryan Haynes, 27, of Knoxville. The other thing is his Hispanic background. Right now a lot of people say the Republican Party doesnt sway enough Hispanics. Thats going to change. GOP delegates leave impressed by Sen. Rubio Rubio

C M Y K Associated PressBELLE CHASE, La. (AP Floodwaters from Isaac receded, power came on and businesses opened Friday ahead of the holiday weekend, the beginning of what is certain to be a slow recovery for Louisiana. Newly nominated Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney visited flood-ravaged communities, and President Barack Obama said he would arrive Monday, appearances this part of the country is all too familiar with after Katrina and the Gulf oil spill. Meanwhile, the leftovers from the storm pushed into the drought-stricken Midwest, knocking out power to thousands of people in Arkansas. At least seven people were killed in the storm in Mississippi and Louisiana. In Lafitte, a fishing village south of New Orleans, Romney saw soaked homes, roads covered with brown water and debris-littered neighborhoods. The GOPfriendly community is outside of the federal levee system that spared New Orleans and it lies on an exposed stretch of land near the Gulf. Romney met along a highway with Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, and they talked about challenges facing the stricken area, which relies on fishing for its livelihood. He also spoke to town officials and emergency workers. Im here to learn and obviously to draw some attention to whats going on here, Romney told the governor. So that people around the country know that people down here need help. At one point, Romney and Jindal talked to a man in waders and a straw hat holding a handwritten, neonyellow Mitt Is Our Man sign. The man complained about the areas lack of protection from flooding. The town is located just outside a region that is protected by levees and other flood protection measures built after Hurricane Katrina battered New Orleans in 2005. The Army Corps of Engineers spent about $13 billion on the system. Richard Riley rode out the storm in his home. Even though the water was receding Friday, he decided it was time to leave. He walked about a mile and found rescuers, who took him to family members. Riley, a Republican, said he favored building new flood protection for the area, especially after Isaac brought in a surprising amount of water. He said he wanted Obama to help make that happen. He needs to see the devastation and allocate the money thats needed to build new levees or do whatever is needed to protect us, Riley said. Crown Point, Lafitte and other nearby settlements that jut inland from the Gulf are accustomed to high water driven by hurricanes. But Isaac, a relatively weak storm by the standards of Betsy and Katrina, pushed in much more water than expected when it stalled after making landfall. To the east, officials pumped and released water from a reservoir, easing the pressure behind an Isaacstressed dam in Mississippi on the Louisiana border. The threat for the earthen dam on Lake Tangipahoa prompted evacuations in small towns and rural areas. In New Orleans, at the Magnolia Discount Gas Station in the Carrollton neighborhood, employee Gadeaon Fentessa said up to 50 drivers an hour were pulling in, hopeful they could pump. He had the gas, but no power. Stations that did have power to pump had long lines. There were other signs of life getting back to some sense of normalcy. The Mississippi River opened to limited traffic, the French Quarter rekindled its lively spirit. ROBERTG. DE HART Robert G. DeHart, age 75, passed away onT hursday, Aug. 23, 2012 in Orlando.

C M Y K B SE CTION News-Sun Sunday, September 2, 2012 Awell-organized sale is the key to bigger profits BYMARYBETHBRECKENRIDGEAkron Beacon JournalYou dont need to bother with yard signs, classified ads and pesky early birds if you hold your garage sale online. Internet auctions are an increasingly popular way to unload the excess that crowds our closets. An online auction is a fairly easy and inexpensive way to sell, and it opens up the item to a worldwide market, said John Jackley, owner of USAWeb.com, an Arizona company that operates the Internet Auction List (http://internetauctionlist.com). Jackley knows that from experience. He once bought a telescope at a garage sale for $300 and sold it for $1,200 on eBay. Though eBay is the biggest of the online auctions, its hardly the only one. Jackley estimates between 300 and 500 auction sites are on the Internet, many of them dealing only in certain types of items. Most of the auctions work in pretty much the same way: Users register first, then they can list items for sale by providing descriptions and digital photos of the items. Sellers are responsible for packaging and shipping their items, although many tack that cost onto the sale price. Dont want to risk letting your Meet the Beatles album go for a pittance? You can set your own price at online stores such as eBays Half.com (half.ebay.com). Half.com has a catalog of product descriptions and photos for many of the items sold on the site, which makes it even easier for a member to list an item for sale. Some online auction sites and stores let sellers set up online payment accounts, which simplify the payment process. Instead of waiting for checks to clear or processing credit-card numbers, the seller gets paid instantly by credit or debit card or by electronic transfer from a bank account. Beats doling nickels out of a cash box, doesnt it? Still, unlike setting up a table in your yard, selling online isnt free. The sites usually charge the sellers one or more fees, such as a listing fee or a percentage of the sale price. Neither are the sites any guarantee against unscrupulous people. Just as a dishonest buyer can con you at a garage sale, he can do the same on an auction site by failing to pony up the payment or alleging he never received the item. Here are some tips for selling on an Internet site, compiled from information from the Better Business Bureau, the Federal Trade Commission, Internet Fraud Watch and hard-earned experience: Be accurate and honest in describing the item youre selling. Include all terms of the sale and who will pay shipping costs. Respond quickly to biddersquestions. Contact the high bidder as soon as possible after the auction closes to confirm details of the sale. If the site has a customer feedback system that rates buyers, check it out. You may not be able to control who bids highest on your item, but you can be warned of potential trouble and take precautions. Keep in mind, however, that both glowing and negative reports can be planted. Be especially cautious when dealing with buyers in other countries. If you have a problem with an auction transaction, the physical distance, difference in legal systems and other factors could make resolving it even more difficult. Avoid cash payments. If theres a dispute later, youll have a hard time proving how much was paid. Credit cards are quicker than waiting for a check or money order in the mail, and they avoid the problem of bad checks. Consider using an escrow service. For a small fee, it holds the buyers payment and forwards it to the seller once the buyer receives and approves the item. Sellers may find escrow services less expensive than participating in the credit card payment system, and they avoid the problems of bad checks or stolen credit cards. Escrow services may also referee disputes. Ask if the service is licensed and bonded and how you can confirm that with the appropriate agency. Ship the merchandise as soon as you receive payment. Get a tracking number, and keep the postage receipt. The U.S. Postal Service will assign your package a delivery confirmation number. It enables you to go online later or call a tollfree number and get confirmation that the package was delivered. Let the auction site know if you have a problem. Some sites investigate problems such as buyers who act in bad faith. Try mediation to resolve disputes. Some auction sites provide links to third-party mediation services. There may be a small fee, usually paid by the party who requests the mediation.ig bucks may be lurking in y our basement. A ll that stuff youve packed a way has profit potential as m erchandise in a garage or y ard sale. But before you toss your goodies on the lawn and slap up a sign, con-s ider this: Youll make the most money if your s ale is well-planned, well-organized and wella dvertised. H ere are some tips to get you started, gathered from Garage Sale Magic! by Michael and Pam W illiams, How to Have High Dollar Garage S ales by Jean Hines, The Garage Sale Handbook by Peggy Hitchcock, and Chris H eiska, creator of the Web site www.yardsalequeen.com. S tart preparing several weeks in advance. Pick a date first, making sure to check a community calendar to avoid conflicts. Call your town hall to ask whether your community requires permits or has sign restrictions or other regulations. B ecause bigger sales attract more customers, recruit one or two other families to go in on your s ale, or offer to sell your neighborsstuff for a commission. Launder or clean all the items youre planning t o sell. Polish the furniture. Repair things if you c an; if you cant, mark them as broken. R ecruit at least one person to help on sale day. Youll appreciate the extra hands, not to mention the company. Anewspaper ad is a must. Advertise in the area paper that car-r ies the most garageor yardsale ads, because thats undoubtedly the paper regulars check. L ist big-ticket items in the a d as well as popular goods s uch as collectibles. If yours is a multifamily sale, a moving sale or an estate sale, mention that. B e sure to include the days, times and location, along with direc-t ions if the house is h ard to find. To deter e arly birds, you might give the general location for example, the 200 block of Main Street instead of your housen umber. Dont publish your phone number. Take advantage of free advertising, too. Tack upi ndex cards on community b ulletin boards, and ask to put posters in store windows. Price everything with stickers, or post signs for groups of items that are the same price. If you want to save some effort, use different-color adhesive dots, and post a sign showing the price that corresponds with each color. Expect to sell most good-quality items for 20 to 25 percent of their original value. Ask more than that for newer items, collectibles and antiques, and less for outdated or worn items. Price clothing,Online auctions offer a 21st-century alternativeDAVID PULLIAM/MCTBe careful out there: Craig Rettmer, of Kansas City, Mo., lost $605 when he tried to buy a camcorder on eBay, only to find that he was a victim of auction fraud, a trend that is increasing as the Internet grows. shoes and trinkets even lower. Afew days ahead of time, make signs to post at the ends of your street and on busy streets and intersect ions within several blocks of your home. Make one for in front of your house, and attach balloons to it. Signs should be neat, easy to read from the street and not too involved. Use black lettering and arrows to point the way. Your sign can be as simple as a paper grocery bag with yards ale and an arrow on it. Weight the bag, staple it shut and set it by the curb. P ost the signs the night before the sale or early that morning, and be sure to take them down when the sale ends. A clean, well-organized sale attracts cus tomers. Make sure the garage is straightened and the floor clean, and wipe off or cover display tables. P ut the most desirable items out front, and organize the rest by category (toys, kitchen items, sporting goods, etc.). Place electrical item s n ear an outlet or extension cord so customers can test them. Spread items out as much a s possible, using blankets on t he lawn as display space i f necessary. Hang clothes from a rack or clothesline. Set up a checkout s tation with a table and at least one chair a cash box, a notebook to keep track o f sales and a couple o f pens. Other items tha t are nice to have at the table are a tape measure, wet wipes or tissues, scrap paper and pencils for customersuse, plastic grocery b ags, newspaper for wrapping breakables and a calcula tor. Have plenty of change on hand at the s tart of the day, in small denominations. Agood amount is $28 in $1 bills, $5 in quarters, $5 in dimes and $2 in nickels. Include a few f ives and tens if you have h igher-priced items. You can bet early bird s will be there the instant your garage door opens. P repare for them by sett ing your advertised starting time one hour later than you really want the sale to start. Be firm with early birds. If youre not ready to sell, dont. If you are ready, sell only for the price on the sticker no negotiating. Or tell early birds the price is double before the sales starting time. Make sure one person staffs the cash box station at all times, and lock the doors to the house. If a customer asks to use your bathroom direct him or her to a store, gas station or fastfood restaurant. If you do let a customer inside, make sure a helper accompanies the person. Dont change big bills. If a customer has nothing smaller, ask him to get change at a bank or store. Chances are no ones going to try to swindle you at your own garage sale, but its always wise to be cautious.

Solution on page 3B Recently, we received the mostb eautiful card from the mom and dad of one of our daughters-bylove.The heart-e ning words humbled us. All we could do was look at each other and release a husheds igh. When we read their personal note, we felt incredibly blessed. Acouple of days later, a potted arrangement arrived at our door to express stillm ore of their thanks. On a couple of occasions, we h ad stepped in to care for our grandchildren for several weeks when surgeriesf or family members were needed. T hough there were things we had to put on hold, none was as important as meeting the need and spending time with ourc hildren and grandchildren. E very time I look at that arrangement or read the card, I am reminded ofs omething. This being Labor Day W eekend when we think about work, its benefits, strugglesand for somer ight now, perhaps the lack of workthere are two virtues we may choose to b ring into the workplace whether in our homes, child rens homes or a business environment. The first is love. Providing hands-on care for children and a house-h old is a 24-hour responsibility (attentive even in sleep) that can sap ones creative juices and energies. But, just looking at the slumbering faces of our grandchil-d ren and receiving their joyous greetings and hugs each morning was enough to rejuve-n ate us every day. And the main ingredient why this was so is LOVE!We love t hem. They love us. We love being together. The second ingredient is found in a Scripture verse in the Bible, Colossians 3:23, NKJV, where it says, And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the L When we enter into any task with the attitude ofl ove and doing it whole heartedly as to the Lord, w e are infusing our love with energy, earnestness, enthusiasm, willingness and a desire to please God. Simply said, it is a true l abor of love. What about those who on t his Labor Day Weekend would give anything to have a job?They cantb ring these virtues to the workplace because there is n o workplace to go to. Start at home. And, then, consider volunteering.T here are many non-profit organizations that need help. This could be the perf ect time to reach out in a labor of love. Who knows, i t could open up other opportunities. Whether actively in a job or not, be a blessing. Youll surely receive one inr eturn. No labor of love ever goes unnoticed by God.

Dont let anyone slow you down this week, Aries DearAbby: My fiance and I have dated for almostt hree years. We plan to be married a year from now. We were close friends for 12 years prior to dating. Abby, over the last two years, he has developed a bad drinking problem and lost 12 jobs in the last year alone. To his credit, he has been sober for a month now and has accepted a new job. Although Im happy that he has a new job, Im also concerned because he will be working in a bar. I am bringing my daughter into this marriage and am worried that he will revert to drinking, which wouldnt bea good environment for my daughter. When I discussed it with him, he became irate and said I had insulted his job and was calling him a loser. Then he accused me of using him to support myself and my daughter. He said my true colors came through when I encouraged him to stay sober. I am deeply hurt. I dont understand why he would say such a thing. We had discussed this before, and he didnt react this way. The last thing I would ever do is marry someone for money. I have always planned to keep my job after we marry. He is barely speaking to me now, and I dont understand his anger. Please help. Depressed and Abandoned in Texas DearDepressed: Your fiances attempt to turn the tables on you, along with his excessive drinking and inability to hold a job, are indications that he has an out-of-control alcohol problem. It is typical for addicts to be defensive and attempt to put anyone who confronts them in a corner. Do not accept the guilt trip. It is admirable that he has been sober for a month, but his job in an establishment where alcohol is the prime product is an almost sure road to self-defeat. If someone is serious about surviving such an addiction, the person doesnt place himor herself in temptation's way. Encourage your fiance to reinforce his attempt at sobriety by attending AA meetings. (It is listed in the phone book and online.) Then do your part by attending Al-Anon meetings. Meanwhile, put your wedding plans on hold until youre absolutely sure he wont be detrimental to your daughters and your future. DearAbby: We have a cabin on a lake in New England. It is next door to some of our relatives. Weve made friends with neighbors on the other side and would like to invite them over for dinner. Our relatives are also friendly with the neighbors. If we invite them for dinner, must we invite the relatives too? Judy on Golden Pond DearJudy: Technically, you dont have to. However, if you have mostly socialized as a threesome, feelings may be hurt if you sud-d enly change what has become customary. DearAbby: My wife and I are avid readers who sometimes find that we have too many books. Our solution is to donate our excess books to the local USO. We set up a donation box in our churchs foyer, and once a month we carry the donated books to one of our citys two USO centers. Service members are encouraged to take them with them as they travel. We have found that there's always room on the bookshelves at the USO. Tom in San Antonio DearTom: Thank you for a terrific suggestion.

C M Y K By FRAZIER MOORE APTelevision WriterNEWYORK MTVgave the last call for Jersey Shore on Thursday, saying the raucous reality show will conclude after its upcoming sixth season, which begins Oct. 4. The series, whose roots lay in a party house in Seaside Heights, N.J., has given rise to stars such as Nicole Snooki Polizzi and Mike The Situation Sorrentino, just two from a cast of characters who were over-tanned, over-loud and always pumped up. It popularized the terms guido and guidette and the mantra Gym, tan, laundry while trying the patience of local residents with its party-hearty antics. Jersey Shore became a pop-culture sensation and one of MTVs biggest hits with its premiere in December 2009. It drew as many as 8 million viewers while spawning the spinoffs Snooki & JWoww and The Pauly D Project. But ratings have eroded in recent seasons. The show strayed from Jersey during its run. In Season 2, the housemates fled winter for Miami Beach. The fourth season took them to Italy. By DERRIK J. LANG A PEntertainment WriterLOS ANGELES Clint Eastwood earned plenty ofb ad reviews for his latest performance: a bizarre, rambling endorsement of Mitt Romney. Clint, my hero, is coming a cross as sad and pathetic, tweeted film critic Roger Ebert as Eastwood ad-libbed Thursday night to an audience of millions and one empty chair on stage att he Republican National Convention in Tampa. He d idnt need to do this to himself. Its unworthy of him. E astwood carried on a kooky, long-winded convers ation with an imaginary President Barack Obama, telling him that he failed to deliver on his promises, and its time for Romney and hisr unning mate, Paul Ryan, to take over. Mr. President, how do you handle promises that you have made when youw ere running for election, and how do you handle t hem? I mean, what do you say to people? he said at one point to the empty chair. T witter was instantly ablaze with comments mocking the Oscar-winning d irector of Unforgiven and Million Dollar Baby Clint has now eclipsed the total word count of his last three films, tweeted film critic Richard Roeper during the speech, whichw as intended to last five minutes but went on for nearly 12. Howard Kurtz, host of CNNs Reliable Sources, said Clints empty chair act was the weirdest con-v ention moment I have ever seen. Joe Scarborough, the c onservative host of MSNBCs Morning Joe, declared that a great night for Mitt Romney just got sidetracked by ClintE astwood. Minutes after Eastwood began his speech, someone created an (ato n Twitter. It has already amassed 30,000 followers and counting. I heard that Clint Eastwood was channeling me at the RNC, tweeted comic actor Bob Newhart, known for his one-sided conversation bits. My lawyers and I are drafting our lawsuit. The 82-year-old actor and director also talked about Oprah Winfrey, Obamas unfulfilled promise to close the U.S. prison at Guantanamo, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and lawyers. At one point, he referenced dismissing Obama and making ac hange. When somebody doesnt d o the job, you gotta let em go, Eastwood said. The tough-guy actor of DirtyH arry fame then drew a finger across his throat. T he Obama campaign shot back afterward by tweeting a photo of the back of thep residents chair, with Obamas head peeking over it, along with the line: This s eats taken. Romneys wife, Ann, said s he appreciates Eastwoods support, even if the actors monologue isnt earning rave reviews. Ann Romney said she did not know what toe xpect when Eastwood came on as a warm up act for the evenings speakers. s a unique guy and he did a unique thing last night, she told CBS This Morning. E astwood, a fiscal conservative who takes left-leaning s tands on social issues such as gay marriage and environmental protections, made waves with conservatives earlier this year when hes tarred in a Super Bowl spot for Chrysler, a company that benefited from government support. Eastwood, who endorsed Romney earlier this month at a campaign event in Sun Valley, Idaho, ando nce served as mayor of Carmel, Calif., defended his a ppearance in the commercial, noting it had nothing to do with his politics. I nside the convention, the crowd cheered Eastwoods e ntrance and shouted his famed catchphrase, Go ahead, make my day. Butb ackstage, stern-faced Romney aides winced at times as Eastwoods remarks s tretched on. After his speech, Romneys camp d efended Eastwood. s an American icon, Romney spokeswoman Gail Gitcho told CNNs Piers Morgan. You cant look ath im at through the same political lens that you would other politicians. Hes Clint Eastwood. There was seemingly more discussion Thursday night on Twitter about Eastwoodsa wkward performance than Romneys actual acceptance s peech. Is this a segment for Mrs. Eastwood and Company? asked Star Trek actor Zachary Quintoo n Twitter, referencing the Keeping Up with the Kardashians-like E! reality series starring Eastwoods wife, Dina. ParaNorman is one of those animated kidsmovies t hats filled with dark, deathly subject matter. At various points we seeg hosts, corpses, zombies, and all manner of gruesome s tuff in between. Yet theres no mistaking that this qualifies as family entertain-m ent. Youd think Tim Burton would have something to do w ith it, but he clearly had his hands full with his own c reepy kidsmovie, Frankenweenie, due out later this year. ParaNorman does the genre proud; its hardlys cary and very funny. Kids and adults will both find something to like, and often theyll find themselves liking the same things. Norman (Kodi SmitMcPhee) is a child who cant alk to ghosts. In and of itself, this is a gift. He can e xchange pleasantries with otherwise lonely spirits and pal around with his late grandma (Elaine Stritch The problem is that nobodye lse can see or hear the ghosts when Norman talks to them, so he looks like a death-obsessed weirdo who talks to thin air. This makesh im a social outcast and a target for bullies like Alvin (Christopher Mintz-Plasse though he does make a friend in the dim-but-loyal Neil (Tucker Albrizzi). The worst part is that his own family seems ashamed of him. Its not surprising that he gets ridiculed by his teenage sister Courtney (Anna Kendrick his relationship with his parents (Jeff Garlin and Leslie Mann) is strained. The plot kicks into gear when Norman gets a visit from his crazy uncle (John Goodman), who needs Norman to perform a ritual. The uncle has the same abilities as Norman, and a lifetime of ostracism has turned him kooky for real. Norman may be in store fora similar fate if his strange behavior remains u nchecked. Determined to try and conform, Norman initially dismisses his uncles instructions, which leads to a zombie invasion.N orman has to work with Courtney, Alvin, Neil, and Neils lunkhead brother Mitch (Casey Affleck) to prevent the release of ag reater evil. Norman may have some misery in his life, but the movie is mostly pretty upbeat. Theres a lot of fun to be had at the expense of the charactersstupidity and craziness. Sometimes it makes them affable (like with Neil and Mitch), sometimes it humbles them when theyre arrogant (like with Alvin and Courtney), and sometimes it just makes for some over-the-top silliness (like with Normans uncle and a ham of a drama teacher played by Alex Borstein). I also found the macabre h umor to be consistently delightful, though it can get gross at times. Lets just s ay that if you dont think its funny when zombies lose their limbs, maybe this isnt the right film for you. One complaint: with so many animated zombies running around, how can the film fail to pay homaget o the video for Michael J acksons Thriller? The film loses steam t oward the end when it forgets to be funny and harps on an anti-bullying message. Social commentary is actually quite common in zombie movies (often the zombies are symbols of complacency), but the way its done here is awkwarda nd doesnt fit with the t one of the film. I got the d istinct impression that the filmmakers were told late in the game that they needed to somehow work in some ruminations on the hot-button issue. The preachy ending caused me to leave ParaNorman with a bad taste in my mouth, but upt o that point the film was a l ot of fun. Whole families w ere definitely getting a kick out of it, and in fact I was rather surprised by the crowds level of enthusiasm. Theres no shortage of creepy kidsmovies coming out this year, but youd do well to catch ParaNorman and enjoy it as a family. Three stars out of five. ParaNorman is rated PG for scary action and images, thematic elements, some rude humor and language. Its running time is 93 minutes.

P aw preference wont make a dog or cat walk, talk or wink like a human. Youw ont even get a high-five or a fist pump out of it, said Dr. Nick Dodman, director of theA nimal Behavior Clinic in the Department of Clinical S ciences at Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts Universityi n Massachusetts. Theres the curiosity factor t hough, he said. Wow, I thought that was something unique to people, and how weird to think the dog could be leftor right-pawed. V ets and owners agree that pets, including horses, have r ight and left preferences. Researchers are studying things like right brain-leftb rain connections, genetics and sexual orientation that m ay one day change the way dogs and cats are bred, raised, trained and used, said D r. Stefanie Schwartz of the Veterinary Neurology Center in Tustin, Calif., and a member of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists. S ome horses have to be a mbidextrous, said Dr. Sharon Crowell-Davis, a behavior and anatomy professor in the College of Veterinary Medicine at theU niversity of Georgia. A1991 study at Ataturk University in Turkey showed5 0 percent of cats were rightpawed, 40 percent were leftpawed and 10 percent werea mbidextrous. That study might be out-of-date, S chwartz said, but it does provide percentages. A2006 study from the U niversity of Manchester in England showed dogs were s plit half-and-half. About 90 percent of humans are right-handed and 10 percent are left-handed. Laterality the textbook t erm meaning one side of the brain is dominant over the o ther may someday help breeders predict which puppies will make the best mili-t ary, service and therapy dogs, Schwartz said, and that c ould be lifesaving. But for now, here are a few simple tests you can do to d etermine your pets preference, she said. Doing it 100 times (over several days should give you an answer, she said. If you teach a dog to s hake, which paw does it offer you first and most often? Fill a toy with something delicious and put iti n the center of the dogs visual field. Which paw does it use tot ouch the toy first? Which paw does the dog use to hold the toy? Put something sticky on a dog or cats nose. Which p aw does the animal use to remove it? Place a treat or a piece o f cheese under a sofa, just beyond a dog or cats reach. W hich paw does it use to try and get it out? Dangle a toy over a cats head. Which paw does it lift to bat it? Put a treat under a bowl. Which paw does the cat or d og use to move it? When a dog wants in the backdoor, which pawd oes it knock with? Schwartz said there are a f ew things that might alter test results: If a dog has arthritis or a n injury in a shoulder or leg, it could use the other to compensate. When a cat really wants something, tests show it usesi ts dominant paw, but when its just fooling around, it may use either or both. Its possible that handedness in dogs, and maybe c ats, will change over time as the animals motivation changes. Luckily, the well-being of dogs and cats doesnt dependo n preference. The same cannot be said for horses, C rowell-Davis said. In U.S. racing, horses only have to lean left because allr aces are run counterclockwise on tracks, but in some c ompetitions and in some other countries, horses have to race and canter both ways. They have to be able to circle right and left. If not, they can trip, Crowell-Davis said. ou have to work to get t hem to take the lead they p refer less, she said. Crowell-Davis has never seen an advertisement pro-m oting rightor left-pawed dogs or cats. The only time y ou see it used in advertising is with horses. If a horse if being offered for sale, because of issues on the lead, it may say Works well onb oth leadsto emphasize the horse has had training. R obin A.F. Olson of Newtown, Conn., founder and president of KittenA ssociates Inc., a rescue organization, said her cats are a lways reaching for toys or treats with one paw or another. O lson said she was born left-handed, but her mother didnt want her growing up left-handed in a world of right-handed people. Shea lways handed things to me close to my right hand. She a lways put the crayons in my right hand. T here wont be any such lessons for her cats, she said. I try not to be judgmental ofm y catsabilities or lack thereof. We will never worry a bout the anti-paw. It appears that Nora, an internationally acclaimed 8year-old piano-playing tabby from Philadelphia, owned byp iano teacher Betsy Alexander and her artist-phot ographer husband, Burnell Yow, is right-pawed. Yow studied her videos and determined that she appears to lead with her right paw, t hen follow with her left, Alexander said. But she has her ambidext rous, headstrong moments. She uses both paws to reach for specific notes, even black notes ... and she uses her head to roll a series ofm ultiple notes. Could your pet be a southpaw? P aw preference tests can be fun for your pets PETS Metro Family FeaturesWhen it comes to caring for your pet, you do everything you can to ensure they stay happy and healthy. And while there are a variety of pet foods on the market boasting recipes made using wholesome ingredients, if pets arent digesting that food correctly, they may as well be eating the inexpensive fillers youve been trying to avoid. In fact, many pet owners dont know their dogs and cats have sensitive stomachs, which may make it hard for them to properly digest their current food, and could lead to a host of problems. Pets need consistency, they need to eat the same food every day to avoid digestive upset, explains Dr. Al Townshed, staff veterinarian with Holistic Select natural pet food, If pets cat absorb the nutrients in the food they eat, it can lead to malnutrition, lethargy, frequent vomiting and worse The good news is there are pet foods on the market that offer well-balanced, easily digestible nutrients. With this in mind, Dr. Townshend shares these tips for choosing the right food for your pet: Check the label Look for natural, wholesome ingredients and avoid fillers. Remember, while proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals all play an important role in the health benefits of your pet's diet, there are other ingredients to consider to help ensure your pet is properly absorbing these key nutrients. Probiotics Your pets digestive tract requires a careful balancing act of bacteria. Probiotics or good bacteria help keep your pet's immune system healthy. Cat and dog foods like Holistic Select natural pet food contain live probiotics that are added to the food after it has been cooked and cooled. This process assures maximum survival of the probiotics, so that your pet reaps the full benefits of their food. Prebiotics Prebiotics stimulate the growth and maintenance of good bacteria, like probiotics, in your pets digestive tract. Examples of prebiotics include beet pulp and inulin, which is a fructose found in plant roots and is believed to aid in the absorption of calcium and magnesium, according to a 2005 study published by the National Institutes of Health. Natural fibers Just as fiber plays an important role in human digestive health, it also plays an integral role in your pes digestive health. Fiber-rich foods such as oatmeal and flaxseed promote digestive regularity. Flaxseed, for example, helps with the movement of food through your pets digestive tract, is rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, and offers benefits for your pes cardiovascular, endocrine and immune systems. Easily digestible enzymes Several organs such as the pancreas help break down food within the digestive process by producing enzymes. Adding enzymes to pet food actually helps with this process by ensuring your pet is getting the nutrients from their food, while reducing stress on their organs this is especially crucial for aging pets. When it comes to choosing a pet food for your dog or cat, keep in mind that more than just the main ingredients matter. Ensure your pet is getting the maximum amount of nutrition from every bite by purchasing quality foods such as the line from Holistic Select, which is the only pet food with a complete digestive support system.

T hey are very capable of grooming themselves and keeping clean. In the rare i nstance a cat gets very dirty or gets a substance stuck in its fur that it cannot remove, then the cat might need a bath. Few have escaped the dramatic stories of attempting to bathe a cat, where the cat usu-a lly escapes, not before scratching or biting the person trying to do the bathing of the animal. Many cats are skittish around water, or anything like a bath is foreign to them. B ut there are ways to minimize the stress of bathing a cat both to the animal and the person doing the bathing. Here are a few pointers. Brush the cats fur before bathing to remove any tangles or matting. Place something that the cat can grip with its claws into the bottom of the bath or sink. An old piece of window screen or something similar could provide traction. Fill the sink or tub up with warm water before handling the cat to minimize skittishn ess. Place cotton in the cats ears to prevent bath water from entering. Slowly lower the cat into the water and watch for his or her response. Soothingw ords and some petting could calm nerves. Wash the cat with a gentle shampoo designed for cats, starting at the neck and working backward. Thoroughly rinse all of the shampoo, otherwise it can cause skini rritation. Use a towel to pat the cat dry. Avoid vigorous rubbing or new matting may occur. Place the cat in a warm room until he or she is dry. Keep the cat away from other pet cats until the bathed cat is calm and once again ready for social interaction. Bathing cats the right way

Thanks to years of fictional movies such as Little Shop ofH orrors, The Hellstrom Chronicle and the Day of the Triffids, many people have a completely unrealistic idea of what carnivorous plants are truly about. They are fascinating plants,b ut so far none has ever consumed a human being. C arnivorous plants grow in areas where the soil has few nutrients and offers little in the way off ood. In order to survive, these plants have had to evolve and d evelop trap type devices to capture insects to obtain the necessary nutrients for their survival. These plants succeed where other plants cannot survive. More that 600s pecies of carnivorous plants have been identified throughout the cent uries. Not all have survived and many are now extinct. As pollen is to a butterfly, carnivorous plants are to insects. In order to trap the unsuspecting bug, the plant must first entice prey to come close enough to attack. Somec arnivorous plants have a sweet smell that attracts many types of insects. Others have beautiful, bright colors that bugs may find interesting enough to investigate.A nd some of these carnivores have sticky or slippery parts that entrap insects once they have touched upon the dangerous area. There are different types of carn ivorous plants each using a different method to entrap their prey. Venus-flytrap plants use snap traps to snare their meals. When an insect lands on the leaves, they snap shut to create an inescapablet rap. Some plants actually suck insects in, such as the Bladderwort. T he beautiful delicate yellow flowering plant has underwater bladders that suck in aquatic creatures ast hey swim by. Other plants such as Lobster-pot traps use inward-pointi ng hairs to force insects to enter and then consume them with digestive enzymes. Pitcher plants use pitfall traps to capture their prey. The unsuspect-i ng insect falls into a long, narrow rolled leaf. Once it has fallen into t he trap, it is digested by enzymes or bacteria at the bottom of the leaf. Even though lethal to most insects, these plants are quite beaut iful and resemble goblets rather than pitchers. They are monocots a nd belong to two different families Nepenthaceae and Sarranceniaceae. T he Sarranceniaceae variety stays on the ground while those m embers of the Nepenthaceae family live high in tree tops where food sources for other types of plants are limited. The ground dwelling types of pitcher plantsu sually live in bogs and wet areas. The deeply folded leaves hold a s weet-smelling juice that entices unsuspecting insects to come and taste. Once the bug takes the bait, it finds that it is in a tube-like structure that it cannot escape. Trying desperately to escape, it will fight and flail until it finallyl oses energy and slips down into the very juice that attracted it in the first place. To help keep the prey from escaping, hair-like growths alongt he plants leaves keep the victim from climbing away. Once the unfortunate creature has plunged into the juices, its fate is sealed. Chemicals in the sweet smelling j uice are similar to those in human stomachs. Ever so slowly the prey will be dissolved completely. Contrary to the science fiction movies and myths, the largest prey that most of these plants ever con-s ume is probably a small bird, snake, lizard or frog. For the most p art, they entrap and consume insects. The process is quite slow and a creature the size of a midgec ould be digested in a matter of a few hours. Something the size of a f ly could take up to two days. Although carnivorous plants grow all over the world, North America has more of these plants than any other continent. Righth ere in our own County are numerous varieties of these fascinating p lants. Just take the time to visit some of the natural areas and look for places such as bogs and marshes for carnivorous varieties of plants. Did you know?The pitcher plants favorite food is fire ants and lovebugs Pitcher plants will not harm a person if they stick their finger inside the plant. Pitcher plants do not eat hamburger Pitcher plants range from the size of an adults fist to up to 3 feet long. The largest pitcher plants trap and digest rodents as large as rats. Small pitcher plants that feed on insects emit sweet aromas that smell like nectar. The larger pitch-e rs that feed on rodents release scents that smell like rotting meat. Pitcher plants are perennial p lants that bloom yearly. The plants become dormant in late s ummer, when their natural habitats dry out. During the dormant months, pitchers store energy top repare for the blooming season. Blooms appear April through S eptember.

They are the stuff of presidential campaigns, flowing from the candidates lips at every stop. Theyre bold and simple, delivered with absolute certainty that they will be fulfilled. Once in office, though, presidents often find it difficult to deliver. They find that Congress and the Supreme Court have a say. Circumstances change. Awar erupts. The economy stumbles. Presidents can break some of their promises and survive. Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1932 vowed to b alance the federal budget. Instead, he launched a series of government programs to ease the pain of the Great Depression, ran up deficits and won a landslide re-election. I n 1980, Ronald Reagan said hed cut taxes and spending. He delivered on taxes. He couldnt deliver on spending, and stuck the country with soaring deficits. Still, the economy started growing, and Reagan coasted to a landslide re-election. Not every president has had the same experience. George H.W. Bush vowed in 1988 to resist any effort to raise taxes. Congress will push and push ... and Ill say, Read my lips: No new taxes, he said to cheers on his way to victory. He broke the pledge to reach a budget deal, lost support from conservatives and went on to lose in 1992. G eorge W. Bush pledged in 2000 never to commit the U.S. to nation-building elsewhere in the world. After the 2001 terrorist attacks, he invaded Iraq, then spent the rest of his p residency nation building in Iraq. He surv ived to win re-election, but the drain of Iraq cost him political capital. Barack Obama so far has a mixed record, d elivering on some of his big promises, striking out on others and struggling with many more in the face of a Republican takeover of the House of Representatives. T he non-partisan website PolitiFact.com keeps a running score of more than 500 Obama promises, and said hes kept 37 percent of them. Another 14 percent are considered a compromise, 23 percent are in the works and 26 percent are either stalled or broken. The following is McClatchys scorecard on 10 high-profile promises, half of them domestic, half dealing with foreign policy or national security. As the 2012 election cycle hits full-steam, we look back at the promises President Obama made in the 2008 electionT AX CUTSThe promise:E nd Bush tax cuts for individual incomes above $200,000 and family incomes above $250,000.The quote:One of the things I think we are going to have to do is reverse some of those Bush tax cuts that went to the wealthiest Americans ... and invest in infrastructure, invest in education, invest in health care for all. Barack Obama, March 31, 2007The facts: Rather than let the Bush tax cuts for higher incomes expire as scheduled on Dec. 31, 2010, Obama agreed to extend them for another two years. He had to do that to win Republican agreement in Congress to also extend the Bush tax cuts for lower incomes. He has vowed again to let the taxes on the wealthiest expire at the end of this year.U NIVERSAL HEALTH CAREThe promise:Health care for every American.T he quote:Now is the time to finally keep the promise of afforda ble, accessible health care for every single American. If you have h ealth care, my plan will lower your premiums. If you dont, youll be able to get the same kind of coverage that members of Congress give themselves. Barack Obama, Aug. 28, 2008The facts:Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law on March 23, 2010. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said in July, after the Supreme Court u pheld the law, that about 92 percent of legal, nonelderly Americans will have cover-a ge by 2022, when the law is fully implemented, compared to 82 percent without the law. That wouldnt cover every single American as promised, but it is close.C OSTOF HEALTH CAREThe promise:To cut health care premiums by as much as $2,500 a year.T he quote: I have made a s olemn pledge that I will sign a universal health care bill into law by the end of my first term as president that will cover every American and cut the cost of a typical familys premium by up to $2,500 a year Barack Obama, June 23, 2007The facts:The average premium for families with employer-provided insurance went up by 9 percent this year over last year, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. The average premium for an individual shot up 8 percent. The White House said only about 1 to 2 percentage points of the increase could be tied to the new law. Longer term, the prospects arem ixed. The Congressional Budget Office last year said premiums will be somewhat higher but that many people will end up paying less for health insurance because theyll get help from the government.J OBSThe promise:S ave or create millions of jobs and keep unemployment below 8 percent if able to enact stimulus package.The quote:package in the range that the President-Elect has discussed is expected to create between three and four million jobs by the end of 2010. Obama advisers Christina Romer and Jared Bernstein in a report on the benefits of the proposed stimulus, Jan. 9, 2008. The report included a chart showing unemployment peaking below 8 percent if the stimulus were enacted.The facts:Unemployment topped 8 percent the next month at the same time the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act w as being passed and remains a bove 8 percent nearly three years l ater. T he CBO concluded last year that the $830 billion stimulus did have a positive effect on jobs increasing the number of jobs by 1.6 million to 4.6 million over what it would have totaled, and decreasing the unemployment rate by 0.6 to 1.8 percentage points.E NVIRONMENTThe promise:A cap and trade plan that would limit the emissions that contribute to global warming.The quote:As president, I will set a hard cap on all carbon emissions at a level that scientists say is necessary to curb global warming, an 80 percent reduction by 2050. Barack Obama, Oct. 8, 2007The facts:The House of Representatives passed the plan while Democrats still controlled it. But it was blocked in the Senate. And the Republican takeover of the House and gains in the Senate in 2010 killed the idea. Said Obama after the 2010 elections: Its doubtful that you could get the votes to pass that through the House this year or nex t year or the year after D OMESTIC PROMISES GUANTANAMOBAYThe promise:To close the terrorist prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.The quote:I will close Guantanamo, reject the Military Commissions Act and adhere to the Geneva Conventions. Our Constitution and laws... provide a framework for dealing with the terrorists. Barack Obama, Aug. 1, 2007The facts:Two days after he took office, Obama signed an executive order to force the closure of the Guantanamo Bay facility withina year. His plan met with fierce opposition in Congress from lawmakers, including Democrats, who opposed transferring suspected terrorists to U.S. prisons. Obama changed course in 2011, signing another executive order, this time allowing military trials to continue at the camp. The administration insists it remains committed to closing the facility, but Abd al Rahim al Nashiri, who faces the death penalty in al-Qaidas suicide bombing of a U.S. Navy warship in aYemen port a decade ago, and is currently on trial there before a military tribunal.WAR IN IRAQ The promise:End U.S. involvement in Iraq.The quote:I will begin to remove our troops from Iraq immediately. I will remove one or two brigades a month and get all of our combat troops out of Iraq within 16 months. The only troops I will keep in Iraq will perform the limited missions of protecting our diplomats and carrying out targeted strikes on al-Qaida. Let there be no doubt:I will end this war. Barack Obama, Oct. 2, 2007 The facts:In August 2010 18 months after taking office Obama declared the combat mission in Iraq over. On Dec. 18, 2011, the last American combat troops left the country, nearly 9 years after the invasion that ousted Saddam Hussein. The U.S. is still assisting the country on a variety of fronts, including law enforcement and security.OSAMABIN LADEN The promise:Get terror mastermind.The quote:If we have Osama bin Laden in our sights and the Pakistani government is unable or unwilling to take them out, then I think that we have to act and we will take them out. We will kill bin Laden; we will crush al-Qaida. That has to be our biggest national security priority. Barack Obama, Oct. 7, 2008. The facts:Late on May 1, 2011, Obama announced from the White House that the leader of the alQaida terror organization had been killed in Pakistan by U.S. operatives. He said then that shortly after he took office he had directed then-CIAdirector Leon Panetta to make the killing or capture of bin Laden the top priority of our war against al-Qaida. MIDEASTPEACEThe promise:He will make a sustained push working with Israelis and Palestinians to achieve the goal of two states, a Jewish state in Israel and a Palestinian state, living side by side in peace and security. Obamas Blueprint for ChangeThe facts:Days after taking office, President Obama named George Mitchell, who helped broker peace in Northern Ireland, as a special envoy to the Middle East in hopes of reaching a deal to an issue that has proved vexing to U.S. presidents for decades. But Mitchell stepped down in March, followed months later by Dennis Ross, one of Obamas key Middle East advisors. Peace talks have stalled, and Obama last year failed to convince the Palestinians not to seek recognition at the United Nations. Given domestic political considerations, analysts dont expect any movement on the front between now and the election.AFGHANISTANThe promise:Send more troops to wage war in AfghanistanThe quote:As president, I would deploy at least two additional brigades to Afghanistan to reinforce our counterterrorism operations and support NATs efforts against the Taliban. Barack Obama, Aug. 1, 2007The facts: Obama on Feb.17, 2009, ordered two additional brigades to Afghanistan, saying it was necessary to stabilize a deter iorating situation in Afghanistan. On Dec. 1, 2009, he announced he was sending another 30,000 troops. Hes pledged to wind down the war with U.S. and NATO combat troop s remaining there through 2014, but with Afghanistans security forces taking a lead role in 2013 in defending the country.

They have broughti n two master chefs one skilled at southern Indian cuisine and the other with dishes from the northern regions of the country. George said that that while some Indian recipes are spicy and hot, most are mild, relying on herbs to create layers and blends of tastes. Even the spicier dishes can be adjusted to individual palettes. Its the flavor of the herbs and spices, not the heat, George said. e can make whatever the customers want. There is a wide variety of ingredients in Indian cooking, and specialties with exotic names. For example, Mulligatawny soup is made w ith yellow lentils, lemon, ginger, coconut milk andc ilantro.

Masala Dosa are paper thin rice andl entil crepes stuffed with spiced potatoes. Most entrees are served with basmati rice.

I n addition to their aggressive marketing plan and extensive advertising campaigns, The Elliott Team thinks outside the box.

By our sellers making the buyer an offer it forces the buyer to cons ider or re-consider their home, Mandy Elliott said. It may be the nudge a buyer needs to make a decision. The way we see it, Norm Elliott said, is why should our sellers have to wait for an offer from a buyer? Who said that buyers are the only ones who g et to make an offer? A r everse offer is a great proactive approach for our sellers and they are loving the idea. The Elliott Team has been using this technique for months and have sold several listings as a result. Our sellers getting their listings sold is our top priority, the Elliotts said.

C M Y K By PAULWISEMAN APEconomics WriterJ ACKSON HOLE, Wyo. Chairman Ben Bernanke made clear Friday that the Federal Reserve will do more to boost the economy becauseo f high U.S. unemployment and an economic recovery that remains far from satisfactory He also argued that the F eds moves so far to keep interest rates at record lows and encourage borrowing and spending have helped bolster the economy. B ernanke stopped short of committing the Fed to any specific move, such as anoth-e r round of bond purchases to lower long-term rates. But in a speech at an annual Fed c onference in Jackson Hole, Wyo., Bernanke said that e ven with rates at super-lows, the Fed can do more. After Bernankes comm ents were released at 10 a.m. Eastern time, stocks init ially gave up most of their earlier gains. But as investors digested the speech, stocks bounced back. By late morning, the Dow Jones industriala verage was up more than 100 points. Broader stock indexes a lso surged. Bernanke noted that further action carries risks but sayst he Fed can manage them. The Fed should not rule out n ew policies to improve the job market, he said. The most dramatic step the F ed could take would be another round of bond buying. This is known as quantitative easing, or QE. In two rounds of QE, the Fed boughtm ore than $2 trillion of Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities. Many investors have been hoping for a third round QE3 tob e unveiled as soon as the Feds next policy meeting in S eptember. In light of Bernankes comm ents Friday, some analysts said that might be a stronger possibility now. Bernanke has taken a further step along the path tom ore policy stimulus, most likely a third round of asset purchases (QE3 announced at the midSeptember FOMC meeting,s aid Paul Dales, senior U.S. economist at Capital Economics. At the same time, the Fed chairman avoided hinting of any one policy move or any timetable. This is really all he could say, says Steven Ricchiuto, chief economist at Mizuho Securities. He is not at liberty to promise anything witho ut the (policys approval, and there seems to be various opinions on the committee about the best way forward. I n his speech, Bernanke cited studies showing that the F eds first two rounds of bond purchases created at least 2 million jobs. It is important to achieve further progress, particularly i n the labor market, Bernanke said. The Federal Reserve will provide addit ional policy accommodation as needed. That remark echoed what the Fed had said in a statement after its most recent pol-i cy meeting, July 31-Aug. 1. Since then, somewhat stronger economic news had led some analysts to say the Fed might now feel lessu rgency to act. But Bernankes reiteration F riday of the Feds readiness to provide more help suggest-e d that his economic outlook remains dim. The U.S. economy is still struggling to grow. It expanded at a tepid 1.7 percent annu-a l rate in the April-June quarter, the government estimated Wednesday. The minutes of the Feds July 31-Aug. 1 policy meet-i ng showed that officials spoke with increased urgency about the need to provide more help for the U.S. economy. The policy committee decided that action would likely be warranted fairly soon unless it saw evidence of a substantial and sustainable strengthening of the economy. After it meets in m id-September, the Feds policy committee will meet once more, in late October, before the November elections. QE3 isnt the Feds only o ption. It already plans to keep short-term interest rates n ear zero through late 2014 unless the economy improves. It could settle for extendingt hat pledge into 2015. Mark Zandi, chief econom ist at Moodys Analytics, is among those who think the Fed will extend its timetable f or record-low rates into 2015 at the September policy meeting. And unless the economy improves, Zandi expects the Fed to launch another roundo f bond purchases after the election. Bernankes comments Friday made clear that the economy has a long way backt o full health. Unless the economy b egins to grow more quickly than it has recently, the unemployment rate is likely to r emain far above levels consistent with maximum employment for some time, he said. At the end of every August, e conomists and central bankers convene in the Rocky M ountains at a symposium organized by the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City.T hey present papers and argue about economic issues. B ut mostly, they wait to see what the Fed chairman has to say. I n August 2010, Bernanke hinted during his remarks at Jackson Hole that the Fed might begin a second round of bond purchases, a policyc alled quantitative easing, or QE2. The Fed started buying bonds three months later. Many analysts think a third r ound of bond purchases QE3 would include both T reasurys and mortgagebacked securities.

Unauthorized use could subject you to criminal and/or civil penalties. Its important to review your Social Security statement at least annually to ensure your on-file information is correct. For example, make sure that your taxable earnings have been reported correctly by your employer or you, if self-employed. Otherwise, when Social Security calculates your benefits at retirement, disability or death, you could be shortchanged; or, if your earnings were over-reported, you could end up owing the government money. If you spot any errors, contact Social Security at 800-772-1213, or visit your local office. Youll need copies of your W-2 form or tax return for any impacted years. Another valuable piece of information found in your statement is an estimate of what your retirement benefit will be at age 62, at full retirement age and at age 70. Use those numbers to start estimating your retirement needs. These online calculators can help: The Retirement Estimator at www.ssa.gov/estimator automatically enters your earnings information to estimate your projected Social Security benefits under different scenarios, such as age at retirement, future earnings projections, etc. You can also download a more detailed calculator to make more precise estimates. AARPhas a retirement calculator at www.aarp.org that helps determine your current financial status and what youll need to save to meet your retirement needs. Bottom line: Understand what Social Security benefits will be available to you and how much more youll need to save in order to have a comfortable retirement.

B ernanke spoke in detail a bout the Feds recent polic ies, in particular its two rounds of bond purchases. He argued that those actions have helped the economy recover from the Great Recession. Since 2009, the Fed has boughtm ore than $2 trillion in U.S. Treasury and mortgageb acked securities. Those purchases have helpedl ower long-term interest rates and ignited a rally in financial markets. In a nod to more action, B ernanke noted that the e conomy could suffer years o f damage if unemployment remains high. While the unemployment rate has declined from its peak of 10 percent in October 2009,t he rate has been above 8 p ercent for the past 3 1/2 years. Its now 8.3 percent. Here are some highlights of what the Fed chairman said in his speech Friday:Benefits of stimulusB ernanke pointed to studies that show the Feds first two rounds of bond purchases have helped lowert he yield on the U.S. 10y ear Treasury note, which w as 1.6 percent on Friday. And he cited another study showing that the bond purchases may have helped boost growth and increased private payrolls by moret han 2 million jobs. Central bank securities purchases have provided meaningful support to the economic recovery while mitigating deflationary risks, he said.Inflation concernsC ritics of the Feds policies have expressed concern that further bond purchases could fan inflation risks. But Bernanke said the Fed has been monitoring that risk, even when expanding its investment portfolio. The costs of nontradit ional policies, when considered carefully, appear manageable, he said.Economy still weakBernanke warned that the economy is far from satisfactory. Without stronger growth, u nemployment will likely s tay above healthy levels. ( Most economists say normal unemployment is below 6 percent.) High unemployment is a g rave concern not only because of the enormous s uffering and waste of human talent it entails, buta lso because persistently high levels of unemployment will wreak structurald amage on our economy t hat could last for many years, he said.More stimulus likelyBernanke made clear that further progress is necessary, particularly in the job market. While he acknowl-e dged the risks and limits o f more Fed action, he m ade clear that the Federal Reserve will provide additional policy accommodation as needed to promote a stronger economic recovery and sustained improvementi n labor market conditions. Bernankes case for more F ed action, at a glance MCT Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke suggested on Friday that the Fed may take more action to stimulate the economy.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID In the end, it was about getting back to basics as the Green Dragons overcame a second-quarter lull to run pastC elebration Friday night, 26-12. e got a little sloppy there, both on the field and i n our play calling, head coach Jason Holden said. So we just got back to b anging it. Things got underway on a warm and nearly cloudless sky with both teams taking their initial possessions and making some progress before running out of steam. Then, when the visiting Storm went for it on fourth down from their own 35, an incomplete pass gave Lake Placid the ball with a short field to work with. They wasted little time, with Marquavein Copeland breaking off a 20-yard run and Foster Walker taking the next carry to paydirt fora 7-0 lead at the 5:14 mark of the opening quarter. Celebration went nowhere fast in itsnext possession, and on third and 15 from their own 13, a shotgun snap was mishandled. Amad dash ensued as lunging hands grasped for the tumbling ball, pushing it further and further toward the goal line. Soon enough, Malachi McLean burst ahead of the back, fell on it and ball, player and end zone came together for a second Dragon score in less than one minute and the lead was quickly at 14-0. Lake Placid would force and recover another Storm fumble and again have a short field, regaining possession at the Celebration 43. Atwo-yard Copeland run was followed by an 11-yard ground gainer by Jerry Fields, but as the second quarter soon got underway,a Robert Walton pass toward the end zone was picked off by Quentin Lewis. By STEVE KNAPP Special to the News-SunARCADIA If you have ever had a day that was so bad that you knew if you fell out of a boat you wouldnt even hit water, then you know how the Sebring Blue Streaks felt at their football game Friday night against the DeSoto Bulldogs. Sebring head coach LaVaar Scott was battling a cold as his team took the field at DeSoto County Friday night. The Blue Steaks not only battled the Bulldogs, but had to battle the challenges of being a young and inexperienced team. ere a very young team, with only having nine seniors on the team, Scott said. Were talented but inexperienced. DeSoto, by contrast, have 19 seniors on their team with a couple of them in their fourth year on the varsity squad. Their experience showed as the Bulldogs won their home opener 28-6. It was a game that the Streaks could have won if not for the several key penalties and turnovers. Leading 6-0 in the opening period, the Bulldogs intercepted a pass on their own twoyard line to stop the Streaks first drive of the game. Ascore there would have certainly shifted the momentum, which is so crucial in football. The Bulldogs were then facing a key third-and-ten situation from their own 10 when quarterback Reggie Jones picked up a first down on a 15-yard keeper. That play gave the Bulldogs another set of downs which resulted in a 90-yard drive for a score. Along Streak drive was stopped in Bulldog territory on a fourth-and-one when Bulldog linebacker Trea Tyler sacked Jair Watson for a five-yard loss to end the drive. s probably one of the best linebackers well see this season, said Scott. The Streaks had a punt blocked for a safety and SPORTS D SE CTION Inside This Section NFL Preview . . .3D Florida girl plays QB . . .4D FTA September activities . . .4D F lorida Prep Scores . . .6D News-Sun Sunday, September 2, 2012 News-Sun photo by BRITTANYWHITTINGTON Caylin Webb slams this kill in Thursdays Blue Streak sweep of visiting Frostproof. B y BRITTANY WHITTINGTON N ews-Sun correspondentSEBRING The Lady Blue Streaks successfully took down the Lady Bulldogsi n three games Thursday night in their season home opener. Thursdays match was a b ig difference in performance compared to last week in the P reseason Classic. W hen asked if she thought there was any improvement from last week, all coach Venessa Sinness could say was yes, very much so. Sebring started off with a strong lead, pulling ahead to a 3-1 run over Frostproof. Akill from senior middle Megan Lollis extended the lead to 9-6. Another kill from junior outside hitter Bella Caraballo extended the lead more to 116. Caraballo led the team with six total kills, followed by Lollis and sophomore Hannah Tucker with three each. Despite this years team being young, the athletic talent and ability is still there. There was just one thing that is missing consistency. Consistency when it comes to broken plays, says Sinness. When its not going our way whos going to step up and make that, you know, oh I dont have to swing hard, but I know where to find that hole to end the rally Senior Paige Lewis brought the Streaks out of as lump with her eight-point serving run, allowing the young team to have a more relaxed feel for the rest of the m atch. According to Sinness, the f uture is expected to be b right for her young team. The offense, particularly in the hitting area, is expected to improve. e have some big girls, Sinness said. Lindsey (Whittington is a new setter so were working it in. Sinness also went into detail about how strong the back row will be. e are going to be a very strong team if our defense holds up, which it has. Freshman Ansley Selander lead the pack in digs with a total of five with juniors Jordan Hinkle and Caraballo following closely behind with three apiece. As coach Sinness looks ahead into the future of what is to come, she has an anticipation of what to expect with district play. Our big thing is going to be our consistency with our hitters, said Sinness. I think our defense is going to Blue Streaks step up sweep Bulldogs See SEBRING, Page 4D Our big thing is going to be our consistency.

By JAMIE WILLIAMS Special to the News-Sun AVON PARK Turnovers, penalties, poor field position and an offense that was unable to get on track were all contributing factors in Avon Parks 27-0 loss to Frostproof Friday night at Joe Franza Stadium. The one bright spot, even though they gave up four pass plays of 20 yards or more and two for touchdowns, was the defense, that held the Bulldogs to just 250 total yards of total offense. Avon Park only managed 33 yards total offense, however, as they rushed the ball for four yards and quarterback Ryan Dick went 4-for21 for 39 yards and three interceptions. We have a rhythm offense, said Avon Park h ead coach Lee Brown. So consistency is something w eve got to do. This is still all new to these guys, its not like we have had something firmly established, here is the routine. B rown explained that the Devils script their plays, and w hen the field position changes then their script changes accordingly. Poor field position forced them to use a backup script compared to the original, where they intended to push the ball a little more and do some different things. I t did not help as Avon Park lost the ball on a fumble on their second play. And though the defense f orced Frostpoof to punt, a r oughing the punter penalty allowed the Bulldogs to keep the ball on Avon Parks 27 yard line toward the end of the first quarter. The first quarter ended scoreless, but Frostproof Frostproof cools Red Devils See AP, Page 5D

C M Y K w ww.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, September 2, 2012Page 3D The Indianapolis Colts drew some odd looks during the 2012 NFLDraft when they selected not one, but two tight ends in the second and third rounds. The second-round pick, Coby Fleener of S tanford, made some sense. After all, the Colts needed to replace their longtime fixture at tight end, Dallas Clark. And Fleener was one of first-round pick Andrew Lucks most trusted targets at Stanford. But with all the needs of a 2-14 team, why did the Colts use their third-round pick on another tight end, Mackey Award winner Dwayne Allen of Clemson? Because, as the New England Patriots s howed last year with Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez, two-tight-end formations arent just for short-yardage and goal-line situations any more. The new wave of athletic tight ends line up on the line of scrimmage or in the slot; they also line up wide or even in the backfield before going in motion. Teams are finding big, speedy athletes with ability to not only outrun linebackers in the middle of the field but also use their size as mismatches against smaller nickel backs and slower safeties deep in the secondary. Tight ends such as Tony Gonzalez, Antonio Gates and Jason Witten have been doing that for years. But thats not enough anymore. It takes two tight ends now when teams go to multiple-receiver formations, creating matchup problems for defenses. No. 87, Gronkowski New England 6 265 lbs. College: Arizona Seasons: 3 No. 81, Hernandez New England 1 245 lbs. College: Florida Seasons: 3 1Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez for the PatriotsLeave it to New England coach Bill Belichick to create the template for this tight-end madness when he was short on wide-receiver talent. All Gronkowski, a 6-foot-6, 265-pounder, did in his second year in the league was rank second in t he AFC with 90 receptions and set NFLmarks for tight ends with 17 TDs and 1,327 yards. Hernandez, also in just his second season, ranked fifth in the AFC with 79 catches, seven for TDs. Just for good measure, the Patriots signed veteran Visanthe Shiancoe. No. 87, Pettigrew Detroit 5 265 lbs.C ollege: Oklahoma St.S easons: 4 No. 85, Scheffler Detroit 5 255 lbs.C ollege: W. MichiganS easons: 7 2B randon Pettigrew and Tony S chefflerfor the LionsWhile all-world wide receiver Calvin Johnson attracts the most attention, Pettigrew is right behind as a go-to receiver for quarterback Matthew Stafford. Pettigrew, a former first-round p ick from Oklahoma State, keeps getting better every year. He ranked eighth in the NFLwith 83 receptions last year on which he picked up 777 yards and five TDs. Scheffler caught just 26 p asses last year (compared with 45 in 2010 six went for TDs, and he averaged 13.3 yards per reception. No. 85, Davis San Francisco 3 250 lbs. College: Maryland Seasons: 7 No. 46, Walker San Francisco 242 lbs.College: C. MissouriSeasons: 7 4Vernon Davis and Delanie Walker for the 49ersDavis spoke of lofty goals when he spoke to a group of young players recently in his hometown of Washington, D.C.: I will be the best tight end to ever play this game. I have a vision. Davis, who caught 67 passes, including six TDs last season, had a breakthrough postseason when he caught 10 passes for 292 yards and four TDs in two playoff games. Walker, from Central Missouri, has blossomed from a special-teamer to a viable option for Alex Smith, having caught 19 passes, including three TDs last year after grabbing 29 passes in 2010. No. 80, Fleener Indianapolis 6 250 lbs. College: Stanford Seasons: Rookie No. 83, Allen Indianapolis 3 255 lbs. College: Clemson Seasons: Rookie 5Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allenfor the ColtsBoth rookies figure to play a lot this season. Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians was a big proponent of regularly using two tight ends when he ran the Steelersoffense. Arians wants to move them around the field, much the way New England has used Gronkowski and Hernandez. Allen caught 93 career passes at Clemson, and 74 went for first downs. Fleener caught 34 passes as a senior at Stanford but averaged 19.6 yards per catch, including 10 TDs. He is dynamic, said college teammate and Colts quarterback Andrew Luck.

He was a major factor in Drew B reessetting the all-time passing yardage record with 5,476 yards. Injuries limited Thomas to five games last season, but he was a force in 2010 when he caught 30 passes, including two No. 12, Luck Indianapolis 4 235 lbs. College: Stanford 1Chan Gailey, BillsThis is a crucial year for Gailey, a former Chiefs offensive coordinator who enters year three with the Bills. With 4-12 and 6-10 seasons under Gailey, its been 12 seasons since the Bills last made the playoffs, the NFLs longest current drought. Theyre coming off a 6-10 finish after injuries and inexperience led the team to unravel, losing eight of its last nine games.2Andy Reid, EaglesEntering his 13th season, the longest tenure in the NFL, Reid should have all the security in the world. But the Eagles went 8-8 and failed to make the playoffs last year, and despite Reids track record, fans are calling for his dismissal. Reid bought himself some time by winning a front-office power play. But if the Eagles dont top the NFC East, changes could be coming.3Norv Turner, ChargersHow does he do it? Blessed with the most talent and best quarterback in the division, Turner has missed the playoffs the last two years, but somehow he keeps retaining his job. The Chargers play six of their first 10 on the road, and if they get off to another one of their miserable starts, Turner cant possibly survive again. No. 10, Griffin III Washington 2 217 lbs. College: Baylor No. 3, Weeden Cleveland 3 222 lbs. College: Oklahoma St. No. 17, Tannehill, Miami 4 222 lbs. College: Texas A&M No. 92, Poe Kansas City 3 346 lbs. College: Memphis 1QB Andrew Luck f or the ColtsLuck, considered the best quarterback prospect since Hall of Famers John Elway, Dan Marino and Jim Kelly, has all the tools and pedigree to succeed Peyton M anning. Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, formerly the Coltsquarterbacks coach, said: It is scary. The family, the style of person, the style of player and what (Luck brings to your organization is extremely comparable.2QB Robert Griffin I IIfor the RedskinsMike Shanahan went all in when he traded three firstround picks and a secondround pick to move up and take Griffin III, the Heisman Trophy winner from Baylor, w ith the second overall pick in the draft. Shanahm said Griffin has the ability to be a franchise quarterback for the next decade. He has everything I look for in a quarterback and in a person, Shanahan said.3QB Brandon W eedenfor the B rownsThe Browns didnt take a 28-year-old quarterback in the first round to hand him a clipboard, so Weeden is expected to be the opening-day starter. Weeden will have to beat out incum-b ent Colt McCoy and veteran Seneca Wallace.4QB Ryan Tannehill f or the DolphinsTannehill might have started for just two seasons at Texas A&M, but he has a leg up on the Miami playbook. Former Aggies coach Mike Sherman, now the D olphinsoffensive coordinator, installed the same West Coast offense and verbiage used in College Station. Tannehill will be the face of the team if he unseats veterans Matt Moore and David Garrard.5DT Dontari Poefor t he ChiefsQuarterbacks dominated the headlines of the draft, but the Chiefs created some ripples when they selected Poe with the 11th pick of the first round. The Chiefs h ad a glaring need at nose tackle in their 3-4 front, so they went with need over the best player on the board.Poe didnt dominate atMemphis, but coach Romeo Crennel has a history of developing interior linemen.1Sept. 9, Pittsburgh at DenverNBC couldnt wait to get its cameras on Peyton Mannings Denver debut, and it comes against hardhitting James Harrison, who will test the strength of Mannings neck.2Sept. 23, New England at BaltimoreLee Evans isnt around anymore, but the Ravens still cant believe he couldnt hang on to a pass from Joe Flacco in the AFC Championship game last year at New England that would have sent Baltimore to the Super Bowl instead of the3Sept. 30, New Orleans at Green BayAyear ago, these two teams met on opening night, and the Packers won in a thriller 42-34. These were the two most prolific passing teams in the NFC last season.4Oct. 7, Denver at New EnglandPeyton Manning vs. Tom Brady. That was an annual November showdown (during a TV sweeps period) as well as an annual playoff matchup when Manning was with Indianapolis and was battling it out with the Patriots for AFC supremacy.5Nov. 25, San Francisco at New OrleansThis is a rematch of the Saints36-32 loss in the NFC second-round playoff game when 49ers quarterback Alex Smith outplayed Drew Brees, throwing the gamewinning TD pass to Vernon Davis with 9 seconds to play.

Formerly: St. Louis Seasons: 10 1Q B Peyton M anning to the BroncosMannings release by the Colts and signing by the Broncos were the blockbuster moves of the offseason, and the big question in Denver is whether Manning, 36, is completely healthy after missing all of 2011 because of neck surgeries. Club VPJohn Elway and coach John Fox say they are confident Manning will return to the form that earned four MVPs, but they guaranteed only one year of his five-year, $96 million2D E Mario Williams t o the BillsWilliams, the centerpiece pass rusher of the Houston Texans defense, missed the playoffs because of injury. But Williams had the last laugh when the Bills made him the highest-paid defensive player in the game with a six-year deal worth up to $96 million if he stays healthy. Williams, who had 53 sacks in six seasons at Houston, will try to help a Buffalo defense that had just 29 sacks in 2011 and allowed a franchise-worst 5,938 yards.3W R Brandon M arshall to the BearsOne of new general manager Phil Emerys first moves was trading two third-round draft picks for Marshall, a brilliant playmaker who has a long history of off-thefield problems. But Marshall has averaged 1,188 yards receiving during the last five years and will be reunited with QB Jay Cutler, with whom he enjoyed two monster seasons in 2007 and 2008.4C B Brandon Carr t o the CowboysCarr developed into a solid cover corner as a four-year starter with the Chiefs and had a career-best four interceptions last year, but Kansas City decided to invest its money elsewhere. So Carr landed a five-year, $50 million free-agent deal with the Cowboys, who gave up more passing yards in the last two seasons than any two-year stretch in team history.5W R Brandon Lloyd t o the PatriotsL loyd, another much-traveled receiver, will be reunited with in Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, his head c oach at Denver and playcaller in St. Louis. Lloyd, 31, enjoyed his only Pro Bowl season in 2010 when he caught 77 passes for 1,448 yards and 11TDs. That was nearly double his previous career best of 733 yards in 2005. Lloyd forced a trade to St. Louis last year and caught 51 passes in 11 games.

The most important thing is that we understand that we have to continue to improve, she continued. We cant walk away from tonight thinking oh, were all that and a bag of chips.I never saw us let up, we played better the second game than we did the first game and there were no lulls. A ll in all, the young and fresh Sebring squad did, in fact, improve during their victory over Frostproof, and the scores bore that out with 25-10, 25-6 and 25-16 margins for the games. The Lady Blue Streaks were in Stuart this weekend for the South Fork Tournament, and will try to continue to improve as they take on the Bulldogs again Thursday, Sept. 6, in Frostproof.

By TIM REYNOLDS A ssociated PressDAVIE Ahigh school senior is believed to have b ecome the first girl to play q uarterback in a Florida regular-season game, taking two snaps Friday night. Erin DiMeglio, the thirdstringer from South Plantation High School, checked in with about 1:40 left in her teams 31-14 win over Nova. Both of her snaps came f rom the shotgun formation, and she handed the ball off each time before being replaced in the final seconds. While no official records are kept on what positions girls have played in the past on Florida high school teams about 500 girls have suited up for boyssquads across the state over the years DiMeglio is presumed to be the first quarterback to get on the field. I just do my own thing, DiMeglio said after the game, as about a dozen reporters and cameras surrounded her. Its a lot of attention, but I just kind of dont worry about that much. Fans were chanting Put Erin in! Put Erin in! during the final minutes, after South Plantation went up by 17 points in the fourth quarter. The two quarterbacks ahead of her on the teams depth chart played first, but the loudest ovation of then ight seemed to be when DiMeglio checked into the game. God bless her, South P lantation coach Doug Gatewood said. She handles i t better than anybody else. S he goes on the field, she has single-minded focus. Its crazy. Its great publicity for the school, its a positive thing, but at the end of the day thats not why we did it. We did it because shes a legitimate third-string quarterback. Gatewood is also the flag football coach at South Plantation, and urged DiMeglio to work out with the boysvarsity last spring, saying she had a good enough arm to compete. From there, the idea was born to have her try and actually be on the team, and Gatewood eventually convinced her parents, Tom and K athleen DiMeglio, that the potential positives outweighed any risks. Her teammates have supported her without any reservation, Gatewood said. And DiMeglio has won t hem over with ease, first by being a star member of the schools girls basketball team, then after football exploits such as throwing five touchdown passes in a 7-o n-7 tournament against boys this summer. She didnt throw any passes on Friday night. With her team up big in the final moments, she didnt have to, either. It was exciting, said D iMeglios sister, Amy DiMeglio, who was on the sideline with her parents. I think any exposure during the game is good. You saw how the crowd reacted. People areg etting more comfortable with the idea. Some people blog about her and theres negative comments, some inappropriate comments. People need to get over her being a girl and just look at her abilities. Thats what she wants.

Several Bulldog drives were aided by penalties and mistakes. To show how things went s o wrong for the Streaks, starting linebacker Anthony Wiggins injured himself in warmups when his knee just gave out on him. I hate to use excuses but our injuries are killing us as we have to move people around and their inexperience shows, Scott said. This team is so much better than they showed tonight. We have to stop beating ours elves. When we had that drive for the touchdown we played smash-mouth football. When we do that we are a good team. The touchdown for the Streaks was scored by Jake Bryan on a two-yard plunge at the 7:08 mark in the second period. eve got a lot of work to do. We have got to execute thats all there is to it, Bryan said. Weve got the athletes but we have just got to execute. Were going to come back next week and get a win. The Streaks had several good drives as they had their big backs pound the middle for yardage. Their receivers were open but passes were just barely off target. They held the Bulldogs to n o passing yardage and b locked a punt and had several turnovers in their favor, but were just unable to put it all together. Just when the Streaks got something going, a big penalty would end the drive. e have to stop beating o urselves. Ive got to find somebody to lead this team, Scott concluded. Weve got potential, Ive just got to get them to believe. Sebring gets itshome schedule for the regular season started Friday with a visit from another set of Bulldogs, the Frostproof variety. Continued from 1D Courtesy photo S ebring receiver Ladante Harris shakes off two Bulldogs as h e gets outside for a nice gain against DeSoto Friday. Streaks to face more Bulldogs Whereas the Dragons had a couple short fields to work with in the early going, the Storm was backed up at its own four. But they made short work of that as quarterback William Santry lofted one down the left sideline toward 6-foot-3 wideoutJ ohnny Victor. The defensive back in coverage lost his footing and Victor coasted under it, h auled it in and took it 76 yards to the Lake Placid 20. T wo plays later, the S antry-Victor combo seemed to have hooked up again, this time for a touchdown, but offsetting penalties negated it. Two incompletions later, the drive came to an end. But the next Dragon possession was short lived things started to get off track as a punt from their own 21 was blocked and Celebration took over at the 14. After two negative gains and an illegal motion penalty, Santry found the rangy Victor again in the end zone, and this time it stood up, and the lead was cut to 14-6 with 6:51 left to play in the half. The momentum shift continued when Lake Placid lost a fumble on its next possession, giving the Storm the ball at the Dragon 33. On third-and-10, Santry found Stefano Saragusa over the middle for a 13-yard gain and, after a three-yard David Akins run, Tevin Carrington took it around the right side for a 20-yard score, cutting the lead ever more at 14-12, where it would stand at halftime. It looked like the downward trend would continue as three plays into the second half, Lake Placid gave it up again on a fumble, and Celebration would march it to the Dragon two. But then everything would change. The defense, back up against the wall, stiffened, halting the next charge toward the goal line, knocking the ball loose and getting it back. With the offense backed up as well, it was back to the basics as a smash-mouth, turf-churning drive would turn things around. After Walton gained seven on a quarterback keeper to get some breathing room, McLean charged forward for another seven yards. Walker broke into the open for a 26-yard run, and junior Eldon McKenzie bullrushed over the Storm defenders for 36 yards on three straight carries. Three short runs got it to the Celebration 14, though a motion penalty put it back at the 19, and McKenzie rattled off a sevenand sixyarder to get it to the six. Walton then finished the drive as it started, keeping it and getting into the end zone. The 14-play drive took more than seven minutes off the clock and upped the lead to 20-12, with just over one minute left in the quarter. The next Storm possession did bridge into the fourth, but was over quickly, putting their assuredly tired defense back on the field with little time to regain their breath. And even if they had, McKenzie soon knocked it back out of them as wouldbe tacklers were continually being left in a wake of fallen bodies. s a a great young man and tough, Holden said. s still learning and hes a quiet kid, but hes a strong runner and very hard to bring down. A21-yard carry got the next drive started, with a 26yarder run for three plays later to get it to the threeyard line. Walker would do the honors, though, and the lead was up to 26-12 with 7:11 left to go. The Dragon defen se would hold, forcing a punt, and the offense kept things on the ground, save for a 20yard Walton to Ricky Miller pass, to eat up the clock and put the clamps on the season-opening win. The kids really came back and played tough Holden said. We had that lull in the second and early in the third and they were on the verge of taking the lead. But when they needed to, they made the plays and turned it around, he continued. Weve still got to tighten things up and not turn the ball over. Some of these teams will be playing, mistakes like that will get us beat. But if these guys keep improving like they have been, and keep playing hard, well be all right.

At this point in the proceedings, the Avon Park offense had been on the field just once and had run two plays. They would start their next drive on their 11 and be forced to punt after three plays from their 15 yard line. Frostproof returned the punt back to Avon Parks 18-yard line and would score a few minutes later on a one-yard touchdown run up the middle by Gaines. The Bulldogs failed on the extra point attempt and now led 13-0. It did not get much better for the Red Devil offense on their next possession. Aholding penalty pushed them back to their own 10yard line and then the ball was snapped over the head of the quarterback and out of the end zone on the next play. The safety increased Frostproofs lead to 15-0 and they would get the ball back. The Avon Park defense held firm and then blocked an ensuing field goal attempt to keep the deficit at 15-0. But, with less than a minute to go in the first half, Frostproof intercepted a pass in Avon Park territory. Two plays later, Reggie Allen caught a 32 yard touchdown pass from Gaines to push the lead to 21-0 at the end of the first half. The time of possession for the first half was decidedly in the Bulldogs favor as the Devils had the ball for less than five minutes, compared to Frostproofs nearly 20 minutes. As the Avon Park offense continued to struggle, Frostproof put together their longest drive of the game. Toward the end of the third quarter, the visitors put together an eight-play drive that ended early in the fourth quarter with a two-yard touchdown run that padded Frostproofs lead to 27-0. Frostproof executed, said Brown. They ran the ball well and used the pass on some big plays. The game is built on field position. If you give that away you are not going to play well. Brown stated that he was disappointed with the loss, but now they have to get ready for their next game. I understand what we are trying to accomplish, he said. And in fairness to the players, it is my responsibility to stick to that and that is what we are going to do. Avon Park plays in Wauchula Friday against the Hardee Wildcats.

TALLAHASSE (AP) Progress Energy Florida is seeking a 6 percent rate reduction for residential customers in 2013 due to lower fuel and purchased power costs. The St. Petersburg-based utility filed its request Friday with the Florida Public Service Commission. The proposal would cut the overall bill for 1,000 kilowatt hours per month, which is about average, by $7.44 down to $115.75. The reduction would include a $129 million refund to customers the commission already has approved for 2013 as part of a prior rate settlement. It purchases power from other sources to cover shortfalls including those resulting from the extended shutdown of a nuclear reactor in Crystal River. Progress, a subsidiary of North Carolina-based Duke Energy, serves 1.6 million homes, businesses and other customers in central and north Florida.

Back in the 1970s, said Dave V anderlaan, who was one of the organizers at the beginning, a cycling club in West Palm Beach organized a 100-mile ride to Sebring. It became popular and was held every year. His wife Debra sat beside him, nodding in agreement. This was back when bicycle riding was hard core, not cushy like it is now, Mike Purdy added. Purdy and his wife Joan have been coming to Sebring to take part in the tour for 25 years. There were no rest stops, no mechanics, no water stations, no support or following vans. Traffic on the way north became increasingly dangerous over the years, however. In 1982, in the dark early morning, a car half rammed into the crowd knocking dozens of riders off the road. No one was hurt, but organizers decided it was time to find a safer route.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunSEBRING Tayna T aylor and Betty Simmons enjoy helping teenagers, especially those who are facing difficult situations. Both women have been active in Choices Pregnancy Care Center, assisting women who have experienced unplanned pregnancies. Choices provides free pregnancy tests, maternity clothes, childbirth and childcare education, adoption education, cribs, and baby clothes for young women in need. Choices also offers the support of doulas, trained assistants who provide comfort and support during labor and delivery. In 2009, Taylor called Cathy Brown, director of Choices, and made an appointment to discuss possible volunteer activities. How can I help? Taylor asked. Brown, delighted by her willingness to serve in any position needed, quickly assessed Taylors background and discovered that she had a love for finance. Taylors background in finance and her position at a local financial institution made her a perfect choice to serve as treasurer of Choices. Taylors boundless enthusiasm for helping young mothers prompted to her seek additional opportunities for service. Whenever there was a need at Choices, whether it related to finances or not, T aylor and her husband gladly offered their services. From September 2009 to June 2012, Taylor supported young women who were facing unplanned pregnancies. Choices would like to thank Taylor for her support and congratulate her on her new position with Youth for Christ. Taylor will still be working with the youth of Highlands County, but she will be serving in a different capacity. To fill the need for treasurer at Choices, Simmons, of Professional Bookkeeping System, joined the board of directors this year. Simmons has been an active member of the pregnancy center since the very beginning. With her years of service, she will provide a smooth transition as treasurer of Choices. Brown and the other members of the board want to express their appreciation to Simmons for filling this important role.

Dr. Joni Jones SebringNo difference between Obama, RomneyE ditor: The Republican establishment picked Mitt Romney for their presidential cand idate. This came after the national G OPdid everything in their power to stifle the voices of those Republicans who had different views. If you are a social conservative who supported Rick Santorum, the mainstream GOPwill pay no more than lip service to the issues you care about. This just to convince you to support a candidate that is not any different from the current President. If you are a fiscal conservative who supported Ron Paul, you can forget seeing real spending reductions. They will talk a good game but spending and federal government bloat will continue u nabated. When you go vote for R omney because the GOPhas you convinced that he is different from Obama, I can assure you that the chuckle you hear from Wall Street and Washington IS directed at you. So this is what we get: Achoice of a liberal who has a long record of pushing for gun control laws. One who will continue to spend us into bankruptcy. One who is an outspoken supporter of the Patriot Act and the T.S.A. freedom fondle at the airports. One who passed a mandatory government healthcare law. Or Obama. As a lifelong republican, I cant stand it. I am angry that this is what the party of Ronald Reagan has become. This choice is no choice, so I will choose the third party candidate who is politically a constitutional conservative. Some Republicans will say this attitude will get Obama re-elected. To this I say who cares as there is no real difference between Romney and Obama anyway. Welcome to Presidential politics in the 21st century. Dana B. Orr Avon ParkSome good places to eatEditor: Judging by recent letters to the editor, many Highlands County residents are stressed out. I can understand why they are unhappy when some politicians propose turning Medicare over to the insurance companies and turning Social Security over to Wall Street. I suggest we take a break from the news and take someone you love out to dinner. Here are my suggestions: Try something new like Taste of India, our new Indian restaurant at 3545 U.S. 27 South in Sebring. My international development work took me more than 30 countries and lots of good Indian food. Now I can get wonderful Lamb Vindaloo or Shrimp Madras at home. To get a broad sample, try the lunch buffet. As a young man, I lived in a impoverished Mexican village for two years helping to build a school. I developed a taste for the real Mexican food of los campesinos. In Highlands County, real Mexican food is found at Tagueria Merlo, a restaurant and market at 1004 W. Main St. in Avon Park, where you can pick up a piata after enjoying huevos rancheros ($5.25) or carne asada. The menu has photographs for non Spanish speakers. In Mexico City, the Paseo De La Reforma is their version of New Yorks 5th Avenue. If you want Paseo De La Reforma standard Mexican food, you will have to drive up to Azteca in Winter Haven. On Sunday afternoons, a Mariachi Band in traditional dress wanders around playing for you. If you want good basic food at moderate prices, Highlands County has many choices, but my favorite is the Olympicat 504 U.S. 27 North in Avon Park because they have the best Greek salad in town and super friendly staff. The most creative chef in Sebring is at the Sun N Lake Island View Restaurant at the second circle on Sun N Lake Boulevard. If you like Italian food, drive past the chains and try Maken The Dough at 312 Interlake Blvd. in Lake Placid. We would go there just for the in store-baked bread. So what is missing? The big omission is a first-class Chinese restaurant. And I am still looking for someplace that makes gazpacho with fresh tomatoes. James Upchurch SebringMakes senseEditor: As to the nomination of Gov. Romney as the GOPcandidate, I am remined of the quote by Carl Rove: God Bless the ignorant rednecks. They dont make enough money to benefit from any of our (GOP) policies, but they support us unquestioningly, so long as we make sure that they can have their guns. Makes perfect sense. Preston H. Colby Sebring Good. Aserious national debate over the programs future is overdue. Medicare provided health c are last year for more than 40 million seniors and more t han 8 million people with disabilities. Its $560 billion budget made it the third most e xpensive federal program behind Social Security and d efense. And Medicare spending is galloping ahead of the rest of the budget. Its share of federal outlays has roughly q uadrupled since 1970. ... Ryans entry in the campaign has thrown a spotlight on Medicare because of the plan he crafted as House Budget Committee chairman. Under that plan Americans who become eligible for the program starting in 2022 would be given a set amount of money to pay for private insurance or traditional Medicare. Democrats and some independent budget analysts say the plan would leave seniors paying thousands more dollars a year out of pocket for their health care, but Republicans say more private sector competition would finally put the brakes on rising costs. President Barack Obamas rival plan for Medicare, called for under his 2010 health-reform law, will reduce cost growth in the program by about $700 billion over the next decade by paring payments to health insurers and providers. Republican charges that the president is cutting Medicare are misleading; the programs overall budget will keep going up, and some of the savings are already paying for additional benefits for seniors. But Democrats who have been hammering on Ryans plan are often guilty of their own misdirection, leading their audiences to believe his plan would apply to todays seniors, instead of those who become eligible for the program in a decade. And its hard to get most of the critics to concede that Medicares cost is, as Ryan rightly insists, on an unsustainable trajectory. Heres hoping both sides will do a better job of leveling with the American people about Medicare in the remaining weeks of the campaign. And heres hoping Floridians will be paying close attention not just the 3.4 million who are beneficiaries of Medicare now, but the millions more who are counting on a strong yet financially sustainable program in the future. An editorial from the Orlando Sentinel. National debate over future of Medicare is long overdue Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romneys pick of Paul Ryan as his running mate has locked up a spot for Medicare among the top issues in this years campaign. I will admit that when I heard that the Republicans were holding their national convention in Tampa this year that I seriously considered attending. After all, going to a political convention is one of those things on my bucket list. I mentioned this idea to a few people close to me, people who care about my well-being. Their nearly universal response was to question my sanity. Did I really want to subject myself to the outright chaos that makes up a political convention? For the record, Don didnt say it was crazy. He did think I should have some kind of plan, and reminded me that hotel accommodations would be hard to come by the longer I dithered about going. My enthusiasm dimmed a little, especially when I realized that since I was not a Republican I might not have access. Yes, I am technically a member of the media. But I had no idea how to get my hands on press credentials, and I suspect anyone willing to give them to me might have their sanity questioned as well. When Tropical Storm Isaac lumbered in, I decided that perhaps even God was trying to tell me that this was not the time to attend the convention. I consoled myself with the fact that a) there will be other opportunities, and b) watching it on television would give me a good look at the thing without being jostled by a crowd or maybe cornered by protesters. So I spent a good part of Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights watching this long gala and infomercial for presidential nominee Mitt Romney. I didnt seen the whole thing I have this thing called a life, and it has at times kept me away from the television. But I did catch a bit of it. Of course, this convention is meant to put the Republicans in the best possible light. Its also meant to take digs at their Democratic rivals and speaker after speaker took their shots. The main speakers didnt get up to the podium until later in the evening, which meant staying up past my bedtime. So if I was cranky at you this week, thats why Since I hadnt seen much of her, I was glad to catch Ann Romneys speech. She tried very hard to make her husband appear less distant then some have accused him of being. I found I related to her very well, being a mother of boys, albeit only two as opposed to her five. Then there was Paul Ryan. According to my research, hes 42 years old. How is it he barely looks old enough to shave? His speech was well received and took on the president without being nasty at least in my opinion. Finally, Mitt Romney came up. He sketched out a five-point plan to create jobs, something that the Republicans are emphasizing in their campaign. It was light on the details. Mostly he talked about generalities, trying to rev up the party. Time will tell if he was successful. Afew random thoughts to close out the convention: I felt very sorry for Clint Eastwood, whose speech came off as odd rather than substantial. But at his age I guess you can do what you want when asked to speak at the last minute. I saw a picture on Facebook showing the debt ticker that ran at the convention over a sign with the phrase We Built It. Funny, but it turns out that its fake. Research is your friend. The convention looked like standing room only. I saw a variety of human beings there, and the part of me who hates crowds is glad I stayed away. Thats it. Next will be the Democratic convention, which I will watch so I can comment on it. Hopefully they will run things at reasonable hours. Or be prepared for a cranky columnist.

C M Y K TALLAHASSEE (AP) Only one more case of a virulent strain of tuberculosis has been found among homeless people in Jacksonville since efforts to identify potential victims were stepped up, Floridas surgeon general said Friday. Health officials say that brought the number of homeless people suffering from that TB strain to 16 in Duval County and 20 statewide this year. Dr. John Armstrong also said 311 others have tested positive in the last six weeks and are being treated for latent TB infections, which are not contagious, but no other clusters of the strain have been found elsewhere in the state. This is a small cluster that we found because of our intense interest in eliminating tuberculosis in the state of Florida, Armstrong said during a teleconference with reporters. Laboratory technologists can obtain DNAfingerprints for the TB bacteria. Thus, we can track where it goes very, very quickly and we can, if you will, smother the germ, Armstrong said. So there is no issue for safety of people in Duval County and Jacksonville and for visitors. Armstrong said the rate of latent TB infections among about 3,000 homeless people in Jacksonville is 10 percent, which is consistent with the national average among the homeless. Some lawmakers criticized the Department of Health, which Armstrong heads, after media reports questioned why the agency failed to warn the public about the strain.

Tour of Sebring continues to grow in 30th year Only 1 more TB case found among Fla. homeless Associated PressT AMPA Florida Sen. Marco Rubio had his biggest moment in the spotlight Thursday night as a rising Republican star, and by most accounts, he nailed it. Yes, there was the flub he mixed up his words and said Republicans chose more government when he was introducing Mitt Romney as the partys nominee for president but his message of less government hit home with many party faithful. The 41-year-old conservative and son of Cuban immigrants successfully wooed delegates from West V irginia to Texas this week, with many saying they think he could run for president someday. Rubio didnt get the vice-presidential nomination as many, including former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, had said they hoped. But he did get a tremendous boost for his future in the events leading up to and including his nationally televised speech. He was seemingly everywhere, including places where you dont often find Republicans, such as Jon Stewarts The Daily Show and an interview with Black Entertainment Television. And his speech was widely praised as an inspirational message about the opportunities that America can provide. In his case, it was his parents who worked 16-hour days tending bar and cleaning hotel rooms so that one day he could stand on a podium and introduce a presidential nominee. Hes probably the first on the list of the next generation, said Bruce Slover, 58, of Houston, a Texas delegate at the convention. He said Rubios speaking spot was a launching pad for a presidential run. Thats kind of the mantle. Youre up next. And in Texas, were thrilled to death. Floridians are familiar with Rubios life story, a feel-good account of parents who left Cuba to provide their children with a better life in the United States. Rubio was born in Miami and has often talked about how his parents worked hard to allow him to have opportunities they never had, and that America is the only country where a story like his can happen. Hes got a terrific personality, which is very nice. Theres a charisma there, said Barbara Fish, 65, a delegate from Parkersburg, W.Va., who said she expects him to be among the next Republican group to seek the presidency. Were really thinking that he can be on the short list. Hes had a rapid rise in Florida politics. He was a city commissioner in West Miami before being elected to the state House, where he became the first CubanAmerican House speaker. Two years after leaving office, he was mocked for thinking he could beat popular incumbent Gov. Charlie Crist to win the 2010 Senate race. When the race began, Crist was raising $13 for every $1 donated to Rubio. AQuinnipiac University poll just before both men got in the race showed 54 percent of Republicans preferred Crist and only 8 percent would support Rubio. But Rubio used a conservative message to win over tea partiers, then Florida Republicans and eventually the W ashington establishment. Crist bolted the party to run as an independent and was soundly beaten by Rubio in a threeway race. Not that there havent been bumps in the road for Rubio. In his newly released memoir An American Son, he addresses past criticism of himself for charging personal items on Republican Party credit cards to the beginning of foreclosure proceedings on a house he co-owned. But delegates this week were focusing this week on his positives: telegenic, charismatic and a gifted orator. His Hispanic roots are also regarded as a plus for a party thats realizing it has to better appeal to such voters after candidates hammered away at concerns about illegal immigrants, many Latino, during the presidential primary season. Hes got a message of hope for this country. He understands job creation, he understands that limited government is the role that we need for our lives, said delegate and Tennessee state Rep. Ryan Haynes, 27, of Knoxville. The other thing is his Hispanic background. Right now a lot of people say the Republican Party doesnt sway enough Hispanics. Thats going to change. GOP delegates leave impressed by Sen. Rubio Rubio

C M Y K Associated PressBELLE CHASE, La. (AP) Floodwaters from Isaac receded, power came on and businesses opened Friday ahead of the holiday weekend, the beginning of what is certain to be a slow recovery for Louisiana. Newly nominated Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney visited flood-ravaged communities, and President Barack Obama said he would arrive Monday, appearances this part of the country is all too familiar with after Katrina and the Gulf oil spill. Meanwhile, the leftovers from the storm pushed into the drought-stricken Midwest, knocking out power to thousands of people in Arkansas. At least seven people were killed in the storm in Mississippi and Louisiana. In Lafitte, a fishing village south of New Orleans, Romney saw soaked homes, roads covered with brown water and debris-littered neighborhoods. The GOPfriendly community is outside of the federal levee system that spared New Orleans and it lies on an exposed stretch of land near the Gulf. Romney met along a highway with Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, and they talked about challenges facing the stricken area, which relies on fishing for its livelihood. He also spoke to town officials and emergency workers. Im here to learn and obviously to draw some attention to whats going on here, Romney told the governor. So that people around the country know that people down here need help. At one point, Romney and Jindal talked to a man in waders and a straw hat holding a handwritten, neonyellow Mitt Is Our Man sign. The man complained about the areas lack of protection from flooding. The town is located just outside a region that is protected by levees and other flood protection measures built after Hurricane Katrina battered New Orleans in 2005. The Army Corps of Engineers spent about $13 billion on the system. Richard Riley rode out the storm in his home. Even though the water was receding Friday, he decided it was time to leave. He walked about a mile and found rescuers, who took him to family members. Riley, a Republican, said he favored building new flood protection for the area, especially after Isaac brought in a surprising amount of water. He said he wanted Obama to help make that happen. He needs to see the devastation and allocate the money thats needed to build new levees or do whatever is needed to protect us, Riley said. Crown Point, Lafitte and other nearby settlements that jut inland from the Gulf are accustomed to high water driven by hurricanes. But Isaac, a relatively weak storm by the standards of Betsy and Katrina, pushed in much more water than expected when it stalled after making landfall. To the east, officials pumped and released water from a reservoir, easing the pressure behind an Isaacstressed dam in Mississippi on the Louisiana border. The threat for the earthen dam on Lake Tangipahoa prompted evacuations in small towns and rural areas. In New Orleans, at the Magnolia Discount Gas Station in the Carrollton neighborhood, employee Gadeaon Fentessa said up to 50 drivers an hour were pulling in, hopeful they could pump. He had the gas, but no power. Stations that did have power to pump had long lines. There were other signs of life getting back to some sense of normalcy. The Mississippi River opened to limited traffic, the French Quarter rekindled its lively spirit. ROBERTG. DE HART Robert G. DeHart, age 75, passed away on Thursday, Aug. 23, 2012 in Orlando.

C M Y K B SECTION News-Sun Sunday, September 2, 2012 Awell-organized sale is the key to bigger profits BYMARYBETHBRECKENRIDGEAkron Beacon JournalYou dont need to bother with yard signs, classified ads and pesky early birds if you hold your garage sale online. Internet auctions are an increasingly popular way to unload the excess that crowds our closets. An online auction is a fairly easy and inexpensive way to sell, and it opens up the item to a worldwide market, said John Jackley, owner of USAWeb.com, an Arizona company that operates the Internet Auction List (http://internetauctionlist.com). Jackley knows that from experience. He once bought a telescope at a garage sale for $300 and sold it for $1,200 on eBay. Though eBay is the biggest of the online auctions, its hardly the only one. Jackley estimates between 300 and 500 auction sites are on the Internet, many of them dealing only in certain types of items. Most of the auctions work in pretty much the same way: Users register first, then they can list items for sale by providing descriptions and digital photos of the items. Sellers are responsible for packaging and shipping their items, although many tack that cost onto the sale price. Dont want to risk letting your Meet the Beatles album go for a pittance? You can set your own price at online stores such as eBays Half.com (half.ebay.com). Half.com has a catalog of product descriptions and photos for many of the items sold on the site, which makes it even easier for a member to list an item for sale. Some online auction sites and stores let sellers set up online payment accounts, which simplify the payment process. Instead of waiting for checks to clear or processing credit-card numbers, the seller gets paid instantly by credit or debit card or by electronic transfer from a bank account. Beats doling nickels out of a cash box, doesnt it? Still, unlike setting up a table in your yard, selling online isnt free. The sites usually charge the sellers one or more fees, such as a listing fee or a percentage of the sale price. Neither are the sites any guarantee against unscrupulous people. Just as a dishonest buyer can con you at a garage sale, he can do the same on an auction site by failing to pony up the payment or alleging he never received the item. Here are some tips for selling on an Internet site, compiled from information from the Better Business Bureau, the Federal Trade Commission, Internet Fraud Watch and hard-earned experience: Be accurate and honest in describing the item youre selling. Include all terms of the sale and who will pay shipping costs. Respond quickly to biddersquestions. Contact the high bidder as soon as possible after the auction closes to confirm details of the sale. If the site has a customer feedback system that rates buyers, check it out. You may not be able to control who bids highest on your item, but you can be warned of potential trouble and take precautions. Keep in mind, however, that both glowing and negative reports can be planted. Be especially cautious when dealing with buyers in other countries. If you have a problem with an auction transaction, the physical distance, difference in legal systems and other factors could make resolving it even more difficult. Avoid cash payments. If theres a dispute later, youll have a hard time proving how much was paid. Credit cards are quicker than waiting for a check or money order in the mail, and they avoid the problem of bad checks. Consider using an escrow service. For a small fee, it holds the buyers payment and forwards it to the seller once the buyer receives and approves the item. Sellers may find escrow services less expensive than participating in the credit card payment system, and they avoid the problems of bad checks or stolen credit cards. Escrow services may also referee disputes. Ask if the service is licensed and bonded and how you can confirm that with the appropriate agency. Ship the merchandise as soon as you receive payment. Get a tracking number, and keep the postage receipt. The U.S. Postal Service will assign your package a delivery confirmation number. It enables you to go online later or call a tollfree number and get confirmation that the package was delivered. Let the auction site know if you have a problem. Some sites investigate problems such as buyers who act in bad faith. Try mediation to resolve disputes. Some auction sites provide links to third-party mediation services. There may be a small fee, usually paid by the party who requests the mediation.ig bucks may be lurking in your basement. All that stuff youve packed away has profit potential as merchandise in a garage or yard sale. But before you toss your goodies on the lawn and slap up a sign, consider this: Youll make the most money if your sale is well-planned, well-organized and welladvertised. Here are some tips to get you started, gathered from Garage Sale Magic! by Michael and Pam W illiams, How to Have High Dollar Garage Sales by Jean Hines, The Garage Sale Handbook by Peggy Hitchcock, and Chris Heiska, creator of the Web site www.yardsalequeen.com. Start preparing several weeks in advance. Pick a date first, making sure to check a community calendar to avoid conflicts. Call your town hall to ask whether your community requires permits or has sign restrictions or other regulations. Because bigger sales attract more customers, recruit one or two other families to go in on your sale, or offer to sell your neighborsstuff for a commission. Launder or clean all the items youre planning to sell. Polish the furniture. Repair things if you can; if you cant, mark them as broken. Recruit at least one person to help on sale day. Youll appreciate the extra hands, not to mention the company. Anewspaper ad is a must. Advertise in the area paper that carries the most garageor yardsale ads, because thats undoubtedly the paper regulars check. List big-ticket items in the ad as well as popular goods such as collectibles. If yours is a multifamily sale, a moving sale or an estate sale, mention that. Be sure to include the days, times and location, along with directions if the house is hard to find. To deter early birds, you might give the general location for example, the 200 block of Main Street instead of your house number. Dont publish your phone number. Take advantage of free advertising, too. Tack up index cards on community bulletin boards, and ask to put posters in store windows. Price everything with stickers, or post signs for groups of items that are the same price. If you want to save some effort, use different-color adhesive dots, and post a sign showing the price that corresponds with each color. Expect to sell most good-quality items for 20 to 25 percent of their original value. Ask more than that for newer items, collectibles and antiques, and less for outdated or worn items.

Afew days ahead of time, make signs to post at the ends of your street and on busy streets and intersections within several blocks of your home. Make one for in front of your house, and attach balloons to it. Signs should be neat, easy to read from the street and not too involved. Use black lettering and arrows to point the way. Your sign can be as simple as a paper grocery bag with yard sale and an arrow on it. Weight the bag, staple it shut and set it by the curb. Post the signs the night before the sale or early that morning, and be sure to take them down when the sale ends. A clean, well-organized sale attracts cus tomers. Make sure the garage is straightened and the floor clean, and wipe off or cover display tables. Put the most desirable items out front, and organize the rest by category (toys, kitchen items, sporting goods, etc.). Place electrical item s near an outlet or extension cord so customers can test them. Spread items out as much as possible, using blankets on the lawn as display space i f necessary. Hang clothes from a rack or clothesline. Set up a checkout station with a table and at least one chair a cash box, a notebook to keep track of sales and a couple of pens. Other items tha t are nice to have at the table are a tape measure, wet wipes or tissues, scrap paper and pencils for customersuse, plastic grocery bags, newspaper for wrapping breakables and a calcula tor. Have plenty of change on hand at the start of the day, in small denominations. Agood amount is $28 in $1 bills, $5 in quarters, $5 in dimes and $2 in nickels. Include a few fives and tens if you have higher-priced items. You can bet early bird s will be there the instant your garage door opens. Prepare for them by setting your advertised starting time one hour later than you really want the sale to start. Be firm with early birds. If youre not ready to sell, dont. If you are ready, sell only for the price on the sticker no negotiating. Or tell early birds the price is double before the sales starting time. Make sure one person staffs the cash box station at all times, and lock the doors to the house. If a customer asks to use your bathroom direct him or her to a store, gas station or fastfood restaurant. If you do let a customer inside, make sure a helper accompanies the person. Dont change big bills. If a customer has nothing smaller, ask him to get change at a bank or store. Chances are no ones going to try to swindle you at your own garage sale, but its always wise to be cautious. After all the work of preparing, you want to be able to enjoy your profits every cent of them.SHARON HENRY/MCTBYMAR YBETHBRECKENRIDGEAkr on Beacon Journal An updateded look at where President Obama stands on his 2008 campaign promises PAGE8B LIVING

Solution on page 3B Recently, we received the most beautiful card from the mom and dad of one of our daughters-bylove.The heartening words humbled us. All we could do was look at each other and release a hushed sigh. When we read their personal note, we felt incredibly blessed. Acouple of days later, a potted arrangement arrived at our door to express still more of their thanks. On a couple of occasions, we had stepped in to care for our grandchildren for several weeks when surgeries for family members were needed. Though there were things we had to put on hold, none was as important as meeting the need and spending time with our children and grandchildren. Every time I look at that arrangement or read the card, I am reminded of something. This being Labor Day W eekend when we think about work, its benefits, strugglesand for some right now, perhaps the lack of workthere are two virtues we may choose to bring into the workplace whether in our homes, childrens homes or a business environment. The first is love. Providing hands-on care for children and a household is a 24-hour responsibility (attentive even in sleep) that can sap ones creative juices and energies. But, just looking at the slumbering faces of our grandchildren and receiving their joyous greetings and hugs each morning was enough to rejuvenate us every day. And the main ingredient why this was so is LOVE!We love them. They love us. We love being together. The second ingredient is found in a Scripture verse in the Bible, Colossians 3:23, NKJV, where it says, And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord When we enter into any task with the attitude of love and doing it whole heartedly as to the Lord, we are infusing our love with energy, earnestness, enthusiasm, willingness and a desire to please God. Simply said, it is a true labor of love. What about those who on this Labor Day Weekend would give anything to have a job?They cant bring these virtues to the workplace because there is no workplace to go to. Start at home. And, then, consider volunteering. There are many non-profit organizations that need help. This could be the perfect time to reach out in a labor of love. Who knows, it could open up other opportunities. Whether actively in a job or not, be a blessing. Youll surely receive one in return. No labor of love ever goes unnoticed by God.

Dont let anyone slow you down this week, Aries DearAbby: My fiance and I have dated for almost three years. We plan to be married a year from now. We were close friends for 12 years prior to dating. Abby, over the last two years, he has developed a bad drinking problem and lost 12 jobs in the last year alone. To his credit, he has been sober for a month now and has accepted a new job. Although Im happy that he has a new job, Im also concerned because he will be working in a bar. I am bringing my daughter into this marriage and am worried that he will revert to drinking, which wouldnt be a good environment for my daughter. When I discussed it with him, he became irate and said I had insulted his job and was calling him a loser. Then he accused me of using him to support myself and my daughter. He said my true colors came through when I encouraged him to stay sober. I am deeply hurt. I dont understand why he would say such a thing. We had discussed this before, and he didnt react this way. The last thing I would ever do is marry someone for money. I have always planned to keep my job after we marry. He is barely speaking to me now, and I dont understand his anger. Please help. Depressed and Abandoned in Texas DearDepressed: Your fiances attempt to turn the tables on you, along with his excessive drinking and inability to hold a job, are indications that he has an out-of-control alcohol problem. It is typical for addicts to be defensive and attempt to put anyone who confronts them in a corner. Do not accept the guilt trip. It is admirable that he has been sober for a month, but his job in an establishment where alcohol is the prime product is an almost sure road to self-defeat. If someone is serious about surviving such an addiction, the person doesnt place himor herself in temptation's way. Encourage your fiance to reinforce his attempt at sobriety by attending AA meetings. (It is listed in the phone book and online.) Then do your part by attending Al-Anon meetings. Meanwhile, put your wedding plans on hold until youre absolutely sure he wont be detrimental to your daughters and your future. DearAbby: We have a cabin on a lake in New England. It is next door to some of our relatives. Weve made friends with neighbors on the other side and would like to invite them over for dinner. Our relatives are also friendly with the neighbors. If we invite them for dinner, must we invite the relatives too? Judy on Golden Pond DearJudy: Technically, you dont have to. However, if you have mostly socialized as a threesome, feelings may be hurt if you suddenly change what has become customary. DearAbby: My wife and I are avid readers who sometimes find that we have too many books. Our solution is to donate our excess books to the local USO. We set up a donation box in our churchs foyer, and once a month we carry the donated books to one of our citys two USO centers. Service members are encouraged to take them with them as they travel. We have found that there's always room on the bookshelves at the USO. Tom in San Antonio DearTom: Thank you for a terrific suggestion.

C M Y K By FRAZIER MOORE APTelevision WriterNEWYORK MTVgave the last call for Jersey Shore on Thursday, saying the raucous reality show will conclude after its upcoming sixth season, which begins Oct. 4. The series, whose roots lay in a party house in Seaside Heights, N.J., has given rise to stars such as Nicole Snooki Polizzi and Mike The Situation Sorrentino, just two from a cast of characters who were over-tanned, over-loud and always pumped up. It popularized the terms guido and guidette and the mantra Gym, tan, laundry while trying the patience of local residents with its party-hearty antics. Jersey Shore became a pop-culture sensation and one of MTVs biggest hits with its premiere in December 2009. It drew as many as 8 million viewers while spawning the spinoffs Snooki & JWoww and The Pauly D Project. But ratings have eroded in recent seasons. The show strayed from Jersey during its run. In Season 2, the housemates fled winter for Miami Beach. The fourth season took them to Italy. By DERRIK J. LANG APEntertainment WriterLOS ANGELES Clint Eastwood earned plenty of bad reviews for his latest performance: a bizarre, rambling endorsement of Mitt Romney. Clint, my hero, is coming across as sad and pathetic, tweeted film critic Roger Ebert as Eastwood ad-libbed Thursday night to an audience of millions and one empty chair on stage at the Republican National Convention in Tampa. He didnt need to do this to himself. Its unworthy of him. Eastwood carried on a kooky, long-winded conversation with an imaginary President Barack Obama, telling him that he failed to deliver on his promises, and its time for Romney and his running mate, Paul Ryan, to take over. Mr. President, how do you handle promises that you have made when you were running for election, and how do you handle them? I mean, what do you say to people? he said at one point to the empty chair. T witter was instantly ablaze with comments mocking the Oscar-winning director of Unforgiven and Million Dollar Baby. Clint has now eclipsed the total word count of his last three films, tweeted film critic Richard Roeper during the speech, which was intended to last five minutes but went on for nearly 12. Howard Kurtz, host of CNNs Reliable Sources, said Clints empty chair act was the weirdest convention moment I have ever seen. Joe Scarborough, the conservative host of MSNBCs Morning Joe, declared that a great night for Mitt Romney just got sidetracked by Clint Eastwood. Minutes after Eastwood began his speech, someone created an (at)InvisibleObama account on Twitter. It has already amassed 30,000 followers and counting. I heard that Clint Eastwood was channeling me at the RNC, tweeted comic actor Bob Newhart, known for his one-sided conversation bits. My lawyers and I are drafting our lawsuit. The 82-year-old actor and director also talked about Oprah Winfrey, Obamas unfulfilled promise to close the U.S. prison at Guantanamo, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and lawyers. At one point, he referenced dismissing Obama and making a change. When somebody doesnt do the job, you gotta let em go, Eastwood said. The tough-guy actor of Dirty Harry fame then drew a finger across his throat. The Obama campaign shot back afterward by tweeting a photo of the back of the presidents chair, with Obamas head peeking over it, along with the line: This seats taken. Romneys wife, Ann, said she appreciates Eastwoods support, even if the actors monologue isnt earning rave reviews. Ann Romney said she did not know what to expect when Eastwood came on as a warm up act for the evenings speakers. Hes a unique guy and he did a unique thing last night, she told CBS This Morning. Eastwood, a fiscal conservative who takes left-leaning stands on social issues such as gay marriage and environmental protections, made waves with conservatives earlier this year when he starred in a Super Bowl spot for Chrysler, a company that benefited from government support. Eastwood, who endorsed Romney earlier this month at a campaign event in Sun Valley, Idaho, and once served as mayor of Carmel, Calif., defended his appearance in the commercial, noting it had nothing to do with his politics. Inside the convention, the crowd cheered Eastwoods entrance and shouted his famed catchphrase, Go ahead, make my day. But backstage, stern-faced Romney aides winced at times as Eastwoods remarks stretched on. After his speech, Romneys camp defended Eastwood. Hes an American icon, Romney spokeswoman Gail Gitcho told CNNs Piers Morgan. You cant look at him at through the same political lens that you would other politicians. Hes Clint Eastwood. There was seemingly more discussion Thursday night on Twitter about Eastwoods awkward performance than Romneys actual acceptance speech. Is this a segment for Mrs. Eastwood and Company? asked Star Trek actor Zachary Quinto on Twitter, referencing the Keeping Up with the Kardashians-like E! reality series starring Eastwoods wife, Dina. ParaNorman is one of those animated kidsmovies t hats filled with dark, deathly subject matter. At various points we see g hosts, corpses, zombies, and all manner of gruesome s tuff in between. Yet theres no mistaking that this qualifies as family entertainm ent. Youd think Tim Burton would have something to do w ith it, but he clearly had his hands full with his own c reepy kidsmovie, Frankenweenie, due out later this year. ParaNorman does the genre proud; its hardly s cary and very funny. Kids and adults will both find something to like, and often theyll find themselves liking the same things. Norman (Kodi SmitMcPhee) is a child who can t alk to ghosts. In and of itself, this is a gift. He can e xchange pleasantries with otherwise lonely spirits and pal around with his late grandma (Elaine Stritch). The problem is that nobody e lse can see or hear the ghosts when Norman talks to them, so he looks like a death-obsessed weirdo who talks to thin air. This makes h im a social outcast and a target for bullies like Alvin (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), though he does make a friend in the dim-but-loyal Neil (Tucker Albrizzi). The worst part is that his own family seems ashamed of him. Its not surprising that he gets ridiculed by his teenage sister Courtney (Anna Kendrick), but even his relationship with his parents (Jeff Garlin and Leslie Mann) is strained. The plot kicks into gear when Norman gets a visit from his crazy uncle (John Goodman), who needs Norman to perform a ritual. The uncle has the same abilities as Norman, and a lifetime of ostracism has turned him kooky for real. Norman may be in store for a similar fate if his strange behavior remains unchecked. Determined to try and conform, Norman initially dismisses his uncles instructions, which leads to a zombie invasion. Norman has to work with Courtney, Alvin, Neil, and Neils lunkhead brother Mitch (Casey Affleck) to prevent the release of a greater evil. Norman may have some misery in his life, but the movie is mostly pretty upbeat. Theres a lot of fun to be had at the expense of the charactersstupidity and craziness. Sometimes it makes them affable (like with Neil and Mitch), sometimes it humbles them when theyre arrogant (like with Alvin and Courtney), and sometimes it just makes for some over-the-top silliness (like with Normans uncle and a ham of a drama teacher played by Alex Borstein). I also found the macabre humor to be consistently delightful, though it can get gross at times. Lets just say that if you dont think its funny when zombies lose their limbs, maybe this isnt the right film for you. One complaint: with so many animated zombies running around, how can the film fail to pay homage to the video for Michael Jacksons Thriller? The film loses steam toward the end when it forgets to be funny and harps on an anti-bullying message. Social commentary is actually quite common in zombie movies (often the zombies are symbols of complacency), but the way its done here is awkward and doesnt fit with the tone of the film. I got the distinct impression that the filmmakers were told late in the game that they needed to somehow work in some ruminations on the hot-button issue. The preachy ending caused me to leave ParaNorman with a bad taste in my mouth, but up to that point the film was a lot of fun. Whole families were definitely getting a kick out of it, and in fact I was rather surprised by the crowds level of enthusiasm. Theres no shortage of creepy kidsmovies coming out this year, but youd do well to catch ParaNorman and enjoy it as a family. Three stars out of five. ParaNorman is rated PG for scary action and images, thematic elements, some rude humor and language. Its running time is 93 minutes.

Paw preference wont make a dog or cat walk, talk or wink like a human. You w ont even get a high-five or a fist pump out of it, said Dr. Nick Dodman, director of the A nimal Behavior Clinic in the Department of Clinical S ciences at Cummings School of Veterinary Medicine at Tufts University i n Massachusetts. Theres the curiosity factor t hough, he said. Wow, I thought that was something unique to people, and how weird to think the dog could be leftor right-pawed. V ets and owners agree that pets, including horses, have r ight and left preferences. Researchers are studying things like right brain-left b rain connections, genetics and sexual orientation that m ay one day change the way dogs and cats are bred, raised, trained and used, said D r. Stefanie Schwartz of the Veterinary Neurology Center in Tustin, Calif., and a member of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists. Some horses have to be ambidextrous, said Dr. Sharon Crowell-Davis, a behavior and anatomy professor in the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Georgia. A1991 study at Ataturk University in Turkey showed 50 percent of cats were rightpawed, 40 percent were leftpawed and 10 percent were ambidextrous. That study might be out-of-date, Schwartz said, but it does provide percentages. A2006 study from the University of Manchester in England showed dogs were split half-and-half. About 90 percent of humans are right-handed and 10 percent are left-handed. Laterality the textbook term meaning one side of the brain is dominant over the other may someday help breeders predict which puppies will make the best military, service and therapy dogs, Schwartz said, and that could be lifesaving. But for now, here are a few simple tests you can do to determine your pets preference, she said. Doing it 100 times (over several days) should give you an answer, she said. If you teach a dog to shake, which paw does it offer you first and most often? Fill a toy with something delicious and put it in the center of the dogs visual field. Which paw does it use to touch the toy first? Which paw does the dog use to hold the toy? Put something sticky on a dog or cats nose. Which paw does the animal use to remove it? Place a treat or a piece of cheese under a sofa, just beyond a dog or cats reach. Which paw does it use to try and get it out? Dangle a toy over a cats head. Which paw does it lift to bat it? Put a treat under a bowl. Which paw does the cat or dog use to move it? When a dog wants in the backdoor, which paw does it knock with? Schwartz said there are a few things that might alter test results: If a dog has arthritis or an injury in a shoulder or leg, it could use the other to compensate. When a cat really wants something, tests show it uses its dominant paw, but when its just fooling around, it may use either or both. Its possible that handedness in dogs, and maybe cats, will change over time as the animals motivation changes. Luckily, the well-being of dogs and cats doesnt depend on preference. The same cannot be said for horses, Crowell-Davis said. In U.S. racing, horses only have to lean left because all races are run counterclockwise on tracks, but in some competitions and in some other countries, horses have to race and canter both ways. They have to be able to circle right and left. If not, they can trip, Crowell-Davis said. You have to work to get them to take the lead they prefer less, she said. Crowell-Davis has never seen an advertisement promoting rightor left-pawed dogs or cats. The only time you see it used in advertising is with horses. If a horse if being offered for sale, because of issues on the lead, it may say Works well on both leadsto emphasize the horse has had training. Robin A.F. Olson of Newtown, Conn., founder and president of Kitten Associates Inc., a rescue organization, said her cats are always reaching for toys or treats with one paw or another. Olson said she was born left-handed, but her mother didnt want her growing up left-handed in a world of right-handed people. She always handed things to me close to my right hand. She always put the crayons in my right hand. There wont be any such lessons for her cats, she said. I try not to be judgmental of my catsabilities or lack thereof. We will never worry about the anti-paw. It appears that Nora, an internationally acclaimed 8year-old piano-playing tabby from Philadelphia, owned by piano teacher Betsy Alexander and her artist-photographer husband, Burnell Yow, is right-pawed. Yow studied her videos and determined that she appears to lead with her right paw, then follow with her left, Alexander said. But she has her ambidextrous, headstrong moments. She uses both paws to reach for specific notes, even black notes ... and she uses her head to roll a series of multiple notes. Could your pet be a southpaw? Paw preference tests can be fun for your pets PETS Metro Family FeaturesWhen it comes to caring for your pet, you do everything you can to ensure they stay happy and healthy. And while there are a variety of pet foods on the market boasting recipes made using wholesome ingredients, if pets arent digesting that food correctly, they may as well be eating the inexpensive fillers youve been trying to avoid. In fact, many pet owners dont know their dogs and cats have sensitive stomachs, which may make it hard for them to properly digest their current food, and could lead to a host of problems. Pets need consistency, they need to eat the same food every day to avoid digestive upset, explains Dr. Al Townshed, staff veterinarian with Holistic Select natural pet food, If pets cat absorb the nutrients in the food they eat, it can lead to malnutrition, lethargy, frequent vomiting and worse The good news is there are pet foods on the market that offer well-balanced, easily digestible nutrients. With this in mind, Dr. Townshend shares these tips for choosing the right food for your pet: Check the label Look for natural, wholesome ingredients and avoid fillers. Remember, while proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins and minerals all play an important role in the health benefits of your pet's diet, there are other ingredients to consider to help ensure your pet is properly absorbing these key nutrients. Probiotics Your pets digestive tract requires a careful balancing act of bacteria. Probiotics or good bacteria help keep your pet's immune system healthy. Cat and dog foods like Holistic Select natural pet food contain live probiotics that are added to the food after it has been cooked and cooled. This process assures maximum survival of the probiotics, so that your pet reaps the full benefits of their food. Prebiotics Prebiotics stimulate the growth and maintenance of good bacteria, like probiotics, in your pets digestive tract. Examples of prebiotics include beet pulp and inulin, which is a fructose found in plant roots and is believed to aid in the absorption of calcium and magnesium, according to a 2005 study published by the National Institutes of Health. Natural fibers Just as fiber plays an important role in human digestive health, it also plays an integral role in your pes digestive health. Fiber-rich foods such as oatmeal and flaxseed promote digestive regularity. Flaxseed, for example, helps with the movement of food through your pets digestive tract, is rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, and offers benefits for your pes cardiovascular, endocrine and immune systems. Easily digestible enzymes Several organs such as the pancreas help break down food within the digestive process by producing enzymes. Adding enzymes to pet food actually helps with this process by ensuring your pet is getting the nutrients from their food, while reducing stress on their organs this is especially crucial for aging pets. When it comes to choosing a pet food for your dog or cat, keep in mind that more than just the main ingredients matter. Ensure your pet is getting the maximum amount of nutrition from every bite by purchasing quality foods such as the line from Holistic Select, which is the only pet food with a complete digestive support system.

They are very capable of grooming themselves and keeping clean. In the rare instance a cat gets very dirty or gets a substance stuck in its fur that it cannot remove, then the cat might need a bath. Few have escaped the dramatic stories of attempting to bathe a cat, where the cat usually escapes, not before scratching or biting the person trying to do the bathing of the animal. Many cats are skittish around water, or anything like a bath is foreign to them. But there are ways to minimize the stress of bathing a cat both to the animal and the person doing the bathing. Here are a few pointers. Brush the cats fur before bathing to remove any tangles or matting. Place something that the cat can grip with its claws into the bottom of the bath or sink. An old piece of window screen or something similar could provide traction. Fill the sink or tub up with warm water before handling the cat to minimize skittishness. Place cotton in the cats ears to prevent bath water from entering. Slowly lower the cat into the water and watch for his or her response. Soothing words and some petting could calm nerves. Wash the cat with a gentle shampoo designed for cats, starting at the neck and working backward. Thoroughly rinse all of the shampoo, otherwise it can cause skin irritation. Use a towel to pat the cat dry. Avoid vigorous rubbing or new matting may occur. Place the cat in a warm room until he or she is dry. Keep the cat away from other pet cats until the bathed cat is calm and once again ready for social interaction. Bathing cats the right way

Phone 453-6052.PLACESTOWORSHIP When someone mentions carnivorous plants, one may imagine a huge green monster with leaves that devours anything that comes near including humans. Thanks to years of fictional movies such as Little Shop of Horrors, The Hellstrom Chronicle and the Day of the Triffids, many people have a completely unrealistic idea of what carnivorous plants are truly about. They are fascinating plants, b ut so far none has ever consumed a human being. Carnivorous plants grow in areas where the soil has few nutrients and offers little in the way of f ood. In order to survive, these plants have had to evolve and d evelop trap type devices to capture insects to obtain the necessary nutrients for their survival. These plants succeed where other plants cannot survive. More that 600 s pecies of carnivorous plants have been identified throughout the cent uries. Not all have survived and many are now extinct. As pollen is to a butterfly, carnivorous plants are to insects. In order to trap the unsuspecting bug, the plant must first entice prey to come close enough to attack. Some carnivorous plants have a sweet smell that attracts many types of insects. Others have beautiful, bright colors that bugs may find interesting enough to investigate. And some of these carnivores have sticky or slippery parts that entrap insects once they have touched upon the dangerous area. There are different types of carnivorous plants each using a different method to entrap their prey. Venus-flytrap plants use snap traps to snare their meals. When an insect lands on the leaves, they snap shut to create an inescapable trap. Some plants actually suck insects in, such as the Bladderwort. The beautiful delicate yellow flowering plant has underwater bladders that suck in aquatic creatures as they swim by. Other plants such as Lobster-pot traps use inward-pointing hairs to force insects to enter and then consume them with digestive enzymes. Pitcher plants use pitfall traps to capture their prey. The unsuspecting insect falls into a long, narrow rolled leaf. Once it has fallen into the trap, it is digested by enzymes or bacteria at the bottom of the leaf. Even though lethal to most insects, these plants are quite beautiful and resemble goblets rather than pitchers. They are monocots and belong to two different families Nepenthaceae and Sarranceniaceae. The Sarranceniaceae variety stays on the ground while those members of the Nepenthaceae family live high in tree tops where food sources for other types of plants are limited. The ground dwelling types of pitcher plants usually live in bogs and wet areas. The deeply folded leaves hold a sweet-smelling juice that entices unsuspecting insects to come and taste. Once the bug takes the bait, it finds that it is in a tube-like structure that it cannot escape. Trying desperately to escape, it will fight and flail until it finally loses energy and slips down into the very juice that attracted it in the first place. To help keep the prey from escaping, hair-like growths along the plants leaves keep the victim from climbing away. Once the unfortunate creature has plunged into the juices, its fate is sealed. Chemicals in the sweet smelling juice are similar to those in human stomachs. Ever so slowly the prey will be dissolved completely. Contrary to the science fiction movies and myths, the largest prey that most of these plants ever consume is probably a small bird, snake, lizard or frog. For the most part, they entrap and consume insects. The process is quite slow and a creature the size of a midge could be digested in a matter of a few hours. Something the size of a fly could take up to two days. Although carnivorous plants grow all over the world, North America has more of these plants than any other continent. Right here in our own County are numerous varieties of these fascinating plants. Just take the time to visit some of the natural areas and look for places such as bogs and marshes for carnivorous varieties of plants. Did you know?The pitcher plants favorite food is fire ants and lovebugs Pitcher plants will not harm a person if they stick their finger inside the plant. Pitcher plants do not eat hamburger Pitcher plants range from the size of an adults fist to up to 3 feet long. The largest pitcher plants trap and digest rodents as large as rats. Small pitcher plants that feed on insects emit sweet aromas that smell like nectar. The larger pitchers that feed on rodents release scents that smell like rotting meat. Pitcher plants are perennial plants that bloom yearly. The plants become dormant in late summer, when their natural habitats dry out. During the dormant months, pitchers store energy to prepare for the blooming season. Blooms appear April through September.

They are the stuff of presidential campaigns, flowing from the candidates lips at every stop. Theyre bold and simple, delivered with absolute certainty that they will be fulfilled. Once in office, though, presidents often find it difficult to deliver. They find that Congress and the Supreme Court have a say. Circumstances change. Awar erupts. The economy stumbles. Presidents can break some of their promises and survive. Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1932 vowed to balance the federal budget. Instead, he launched a series of government programs to ease the pain of the Great Depression, ran up deficits and won a landslide re-election. In 1980, Ronald Reagan said hed cut taxes and spending. He delivered on taxes. He couldnt deliver on spending, and stuck the country with soaring deficits. Still, the economy started growing, and Reagan coasted to a landslide re-election. Not every president has had the same experience. George H.W. Bush vowed in 1988 to resist any effort to raise taxes. Congress will push and push ... and Ill say, Read my lips: No new taxes, he said to cheers on his way to victory. He broke the pledge to reach a budget deal, lost support from conservatives and went on to lose in 1992. George W. Bush pledged in 2000 never to commit the U.S. to nation-building elsewhere in the world. After the 2001 terrorist attacks, he invaded Iraq, then spent the rest of his presidency nation building in Iraq. He survived to win re-election, but the drain of Iraq cost him political capital. Barack Obama so far has a mixed record, delivering on some of his big promises, striking out on others and struggling with many more in the face of a Republican takeover of the House of Representatives. The non-partisan website PolitiFact.com keeps a running score of more than 500 Obama promises, and said hes kept 37 percent of them. Another 14 percent are considered a compromise, 23 percent are in the works and 26 percent are either stalled or broken. The following is McClatchys scorecard on 10 high-profile promises, half of them domestic, half dealing with foreign policy or national security. As the 2012 election cycle hits full-steam, we look back at the promises President Obama made in the 2008 electionT AX CUTSThe promise:End Bush tax cuts for individual incomes above $200,000 and family incomes above $250,000.The quote:One of the things I think we are going to have to do is reverse some of those Bush tax cuts that went to the wealthiest Americans ... and invest in infrastructure, invest in education, invest in health care for all. Barack Obama, March 31, 2007The facts: Rather than let the Bush tax cuts for higher incomes expire as scheduled on Dec. 31, 2010, Obama agreed to extend them for another two years. He had to do that to win Republican agreement in Congress to also extend the Bush tax cuts for lower incomes. He has vowed again to let the taxes on the wealthiest expire at the end of this year.UNIVERSAL HEALTH CAREThe promise:Health care for every American.The quote:Now is the time to finally keep the promise of affordable, accessible health care for every single American. If you have health care, my plan will lower your premiums. If you dont, youll be able to get the same kind of coverage that members of Congress give themselves. Barack Obama, Aug. 28, 2008The facts:Obama signed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act into law on March 23, 2010. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said in July, after the Supreme Court upheld the law, that about 92 percent of legal, nonelderly Americans will have coverage by 2022, when the law is fully implemented, compared to 82 percent without the law. That wouldnt cover every single American as promised, but it is close.COSTOF HEALTH CAREThe promise:To cut health care premiums by as much as $2,500 a year.The quote:I have made a solemn pledge that I will sign a universal health care bill into law by the end of my first term as president that will cover every American and cut the cost of a typical familys premium by up to $2,500 a year. Barack Obama, June 23, 2007The facts:The average premium for families with employer-provided insurance went up by 9 percent this year over last year, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. The average premium for an individual shot up 8 percent. The White House said only about 1 to 2 percentage points of the increase could be tied to the new law. Longer term, the prospects are mixed. The Congressional Budget Office last year said premiums will be somewhat higher but that many people will end up paying less for health insurance because theyll get help from the government.JOBSThe promise:Save or create millions of jobs and keep unemployment below 8 percent if able to enact stimulus package.The quote:Apackage in the range that the President-Elect has discussed is expected to create between three and four million jobs bythe end of 2010. Obama advisers Christina Romer and Jared Bernstein in a report on the benefits of the proposed stimulus, Jan. 9, 2008. The report included a chart showing unemployment peaking below 8 percent if the stimulus were enacted.The facts:Unemployment topped 8 percent the next month at the same time the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act was being passed and remains above 8 percent nearly three years later. The CBO concluded last year that the $830 billion stimulus did have a positive effect on jobs increasing the number of jobs by 1.6 million to 4.6 million over what it would have totaled, and decreasing the unemployment rate by 0.6 to 1.8 percentage points.ENVIRONMENTThe promise:A cap and trade plan that would limit the emissions that contribute to global warming.The quote:As president, I will set a hard cap on all carbon emissions at a level that scientists say is necessary to curb global warming, an 80 percent reduction by 2050. Barack Obama, Oct. 8, 2007The facts:The House of Representatives passed the plan while Democrats still controlled it. But it was blocked in the Senate. And the Republican takeover of the House and gains in the Senate in 2010 killed the idea. Said Obama after the 2010 elections: Its doubtful that you could get the votes to pass that through the House this year or nex t year or the year after. DOMESTIC PROMISES GUANTANAMOBAYThe promise:To close the terrorist prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.The quote:I will close Guantanamo, reject the Military Commissions Act and adhere to the Geneva Conventions. Our Constitution and laws... provide a framework for dealing with the terrorists. Barack Obama, Aug. 1, 2007The facts:Two days after he took office, Obama signed an executive order to force the closure of the Guantanamo Bay facility within ayear. His plan met with fierce opposition in Congress from lawmakers, including Democrats, who opposed transferring suspected terrorists to U.S. prisons. Obama changed course in 2011, signing another executive order, this time allowing military trials to continue at the camp. The administration insists it remains committed to closing the facility, but Abd al Rahim al Nashiri, who faces the death penalty in al-Qaidas suicide bombing of a U.S. Navy warship in aYemen port a decade ago, and is currently on trial there before a military tribunal.WAR IN IRAQ The promise:End U.S. involvement in Iraq.The quote:I will begin to remove our troops from Iraq immediately. I will remove one or two brigades a month and get all of our combat troops out of Iraq within 16 months. The only troops I will keep in Iraq will perform the limited missions of protecting our diplomats and carrying out targeted strikes on al-Qaida. Let there be no doubt: I will end this war. Barack Obama, Oct. 2, 2007 The facts:In August 2010 18 months after taking office Obama declared the combat mission in Iraq over. On Dec. 18, 2011, the last American combat troops left the country, nearly 9 years after the invasion that ousted Saddam Hussein. The U.S. is still assisting the country on a variety of fronts, including law enforcement and security.OSAMABIN LADEN The promise:Get terror mastermind.The quote:If we have Osama bin Laden in our sights and the Pakistani government is unable or unwilling to take them out, then I think that we have to act and we will take them out. We will kill bin Laden; we will crush al-Qaida. That has to be our biggest national security priority. Barack Obama, Oct. 7, 2008. The facts:Late on May 1, 2011, Obama announced from the White House that the leader of the alQaida terror organization had been killed in Pakistan by U.S. operatives. He said then that shortly after he took office he had directed then-CIAdirector Leon Panetta to make the killing or capture of bin Laden the top priority of our war against al-Qaida. MIDEASTPEACEThe promise:He will make a sustained push working with Israelis and Palestinians to achieve the goal of two states, a Jewish state in Israel and a Palestinian state, living side by side in peace and security. Obamas Blueprint for ChangeThe facts:Days after taking office, President Obama named George Mitchell, who helped broker peace in Northern Ireland, as a special envoy to the Middle East in hopes of reaching a deal to an issue that has proved vexing to U.S. presidents for decades. But Mitchell stepped down in March, followed months later by Dennis Ross, one of Obamas key Middle East advisors. Peace talks have stalled, and Obama last year failed to convince the Palestinians not to seek recognition at the United Nations. Given domestic political considerations, analysts dont expect any movement on the front between now and the election.AFGHANISTANThe promise:Send more troops to wage war in AfghanistanThe quote:As president, I would deploy at least two additional brigades to Afghanistan to reinforce our counterterrorism operations and support NATOs efforts against the Taliban. Barack Obama, Aug. 1, 2007The facts: Obama on Feb.17, 2009, ordered two additional brigades to Afghanistan, saying it was necessary to stabilize a deter iorating situation in Afghanistan. On Dec. 1, 2009, he announced he was sending another 30,000 troops.

The Elliott Team realizes that in order to get their sellers maximum exposure and their listings sold, they need to take a proactive approach to selling. In addition to their aggressive marketing plan and extensive advertising campaigns, The Elliott Team thinks outside the box. They actually have their sellers make prospective buyers an offer on their house. When a prospective buyer is looking for a home to buy, they view several homes. By the time they loo k at more than three houses, they all start running together. Abuyer tends to forget the amenities in each house. They may forget the features they really liked. By our sellers making the buyer an offer it forces the buyer to consider or re-consider their home, Mandy Elliott said. It may be the nudge a buyer needs to make a decision. The way we see it, Norm Elliott said, is why should our sellers have to wait for an offer from a buyer? Who said that buyers are the only ones who get to make an offer? A reverse offer is a great proactive approach for our sellers and they are loving the idea. The Elliott Team has been using this technique for months and have sold several listings as a result. Our sellers getting their listings sold is our top priority, the Elliotts said. We wont just put a sign in the yard and hope a buyer contacts us. Its very inspiring to see their success, said Chip Boring, Broker RE/MAX Realty Plus. In a market where so many Realtors are crying the blues, The Elliott Team believes there hasnt been a better market in years, and continue to think outside the box to provide stellar customer service. The Elliott Team can be contacted at RE/MAX Realty Plus (863) 2732861. Their office is at 809 US 27 South in the Sebring in Keys Plaza just south of Hammock Road. Elliott Team uses innovative concept Special to the News-SunSEBRING Kimberly Reed, broker/owner of Country Club Realty of Sebring, is proud to introduce the two most recent additions to the agencys roster: Lori Brown and Winnie Timberlake. Brown joined Country Club Realty in February. Brown, who grew up in Sebring, has been a licensed Realtor for 10 years. She began her real estate career working with her mother, Mary Lou Livingston, at the Ruth K. Davis agency. Ive had several professional dealings with Kim Reed over the years, but got to know her on a personal basis while participating in the Relay for Life. After that, moving my professional affiliation to Country Club Realty was an easy choice, Brown said. Timberlake is the most recent addition to the Country Club Realty family. Born in the Lakes region of New Hampshire, she travelled extensively throughout the U.S. prior to electing to settle in Highlands County. As a student at Montana State University in Billings, Timberlake was on the Presidents Honors List for Scholastic Achievement. She brings a keen insight into customersreal estate needs as well as a wealth of enthusiasm and energy to the company. I have a superlative team of realtors here, Reed said. With the recent opening of our third office in Highlands Ridge, and an increase of over 26 percent in our sales this year, I couldnt be happier about the future of the real estate market in Highlands County. Lori and Winnie are both much needed and welcome additions to our dedicated and enthusiastic staff. Call Country Club Realty at 863-382-6575.

C M Y K By PAULWISEMAN APEconomics WriterJACKSON HOLE, Wyo. Chairman Ben Bernanke made clear Friday that the Federal Reserve will do more to boost the economy because o f high U.S. unemployment and an economic recovery that remains far from satisfactory. He also argued that the F eds moves so far to keep interest rates at record lows and encourage borrowing and spending have helped bolster the economy. Bernanke stopped short of committing the Fed to any specific move, such as anothe r round of bond purchases to lower long-term rates. But in a speech at an annual Fed c onference in Jackson Hole, Wyo., Bernanke said that e ven with rates at super-lows, the Fed can do more. After Bernankes comm ents were released at 10 a.m. Eastern time, stocks init ially gave up most of their earlier gains. But as investors digested the speech, stocks bounced back. By late morning, the Dow Jones industrial a verage was up more than 100 points. Broader stock indexes a lso surged. Bernanke noted that further action carries risks but says t he Fed can manage them. The Fed should not rule out n ew policies to improve the job market, he said. The most dramatic step the F ed could take would be another round of bond buying. This is known as quantitative easing, or QE. In two rounds of QE, the Fed bought m ore than $2 trillion of Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities. Many investors have been hoping for a third round QE3 to b e unveiled as soon as the Feds next policy meeting in S eptember. In light of Bernankes comm ents Friday, some analysts said that might be a stronger possibility now. Bernanke has taken a further step along the path to m ore policy stimulus, most likely a third round of asset purchases (QE3) to be announced at the midSeptember FOMC meeting, s aid Paul Dales, senior U.S. economist at Capital Economics. At the same time, the Fed chairman avoided hinting of any one policy move or any timetable. This is really all he could say, says Steven Ricchiuto, chief economist at Mizuho Securities. He is not at liberty to promise anything without the (policy) committees approval, and there seems to be various opinions on the committee about the best way forward. In his speech, Bernanke cited studies showing that the Feds first two rounds of bond purchases created at least 2 million jobs. It is important to achieve further progress, particularly in the labor market, Bernanke said. The Federal Reserve will provide additional policy accommodation as needed. That remark echoed what the Fed had said in a statement after its most recent policy meeting, July 31-Aug. 1. Since then, somewhat stronger economic news had led some analysts to say the Fed might now feel less urgency to act. But Bernankes reiteration Friday of the Feds readiness to provide more help suggested that his economic outlook remains dim. The U.S. economy is still struggling to grow. It expanded at a tepid 1.7 percent annual rate in the April-June quarter, the government estimated Wednesday. The minutes of the Feds July 31-Aug. 1 policy meeting showed that officials spoke with increased urgency about the need to provide more help for the U.S. economy. The policy committee decided that action would likely be warranted fairly soon unless it saw evidence of a substantial and sustainable strengthening of the economy. After it meets in mid-September, the Feds policy committee will meet once more, in late October, before the November elections. QE3 isnt the Feds only option. It already plans to keep short-term interest rates near zero through late 2014 unless the economy improves. It could settle for extending that pledge into 2015. Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moodys Analytics, is among those who think the Fed will extend its timetable for record-low rates into 2015 at the September policy meeting. And unless the economy improves, Zandi expects the Fed to launch another round of bond purchases after the election. Bernankes comments Friday made clear that the economy has a long way back to full health. Unless the economy begins to grow more quickly than it has recently, the unemployment rate is likely to remain far above levels consistent with maximum employment for some time, he said. At the end of every August, economists and central bankers convene in the Rocky Mountains at a symposium organized by the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. They present papers and argue about economic issues. But mostly, they wait to see what the Fed chairman has to say. In August 2010, Bernanke hinted during his remarks at Jackson Hole that the Fed might begin a second round of bond purchases, a policy called quantitative easing, or QE2. The Fed started buying bonds three months later. Many analysts think a third round of bond purchases QE3 would include both T reasurys and mortgagebacked securities.

Unauthorized use could subject you to criminal and/or civil penalties. Its important to review your Social Security statement at least annually to ensure your on-file information is correct. For example, make sure that your taxable earnings have been reported correctly by your employer or you, if self-employed. Otherwise, when Social Security calculates your benefits at retirement, disability or death, you could be shortchanged; or, if your earnings were over-reported, you could end up owing the government money. If you spot any errors, contact Social Security at 800-772-1213, or visit your local office. Youll need copies of your W-2 form or tax return for any impacted years. Another valuable piece of information found in your statement is an estimate of what your retirement benefit will be at age 62, at full retirement age and at age 70. Use those numbers to start estimating your retirement needs. These online calculators can help: The Retirement Estimator at www.ssa.gov/estimator automatically enters your earnings information to estimate your projected Social Security benefits under different scenarios, such as age at retirement, future earnings projections, etc. You can also download a more detailed calculator to make more precise estimates. AARPhas a retirement calculator at www.aarp.org that helps determine your current financial status and what youll need to save to meet your retirement needs. Bottom line: Understand what Social Security benefits will be available to you and how much more youll need to save in order to have a comfortable retirement.

Bernanke spoke in detail about the Feds recent policies, in particular its two rounds of bond purchases. He argued that those actions have helped the economy recover from the Great Recession. Since 2009, the Fed has bought more than $2 trillion in U.S. Treasury and mortgagebacked securities. Those purchases have helped lower long-term interest rates and ignited a rally in financial markets. In a nod to more action, Bernanke noted that the economy could suffer years of damage if unemployment remains high. While the unemployment rate has declined from its peak of 10 percent in October 2009, the rate has been above 8 percent for the past 3 1/2 years. Its now 8.3 percent. Here are some highlights of what the Fed chairman said in his speech Friday:Benefits of stimulusBernanke pointed to studies that show the Feds first two rounds of bond purchases have helped lower the yield on the U.S. 10year Treasury note, which was 1.6 percent on Friday. And he cited another study showing that the bond purchases may have helped boost growth and increased private payrolls by more than 2 million jobs. Central bank securities purchases have provided meaningful support to the economic recovery while mitigating deflationary risks, he said.Inflation concernsCritics of the Feds policies have expressed concern that further bond purchases could fan inflation risks. But Bernanke said the Fed has been monitoring that risk, even when expanding its investment portfolio. The costs of nontraditional policies, when considered carefully, appear manageable, he said.Economy still weakBernanke warned that the economy is far from satisfactory. Without stronger growth, unemployment will likely stay above healthy levels. (Most economists say normal unemployment is below 6 percent.) High unemployment is a grave concern not only because of the enormous suffering and waste of human talent it entails, but also because persistently high levels of unemployment will wreak structural damage on our economy that could last for many years, he said.More stimulus likelyBernanke made clear that further progress is necessary, particularly in the job market. While he acknowledged the risks and limits of more Fed action, he made clear that the Federal Reserve will provide additional policy accommodation as needed to promote a stronger economic recovery and sustained improvement in labor market conditions. Bernankes case for more Fed action, at a glance MCT Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke suggested on Friday that the Fed may take more action to stimulate the economy.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID In the end, it was about getting back to basics as the Green Dragons overcame a second-quarter lull to run past C elebration Friday night, 26-12. We got a little sloppy there, both on the field and i n our play calling, head coach Jason Holden said. So we just got back to b anging it. Things got underway on a warm and nearly cloudless sky with both teams taking their initial possessions and making some progress before running out of steam. Then, when the visiting Storm went for it on fourth down from their own 35, an incomplete pass gave Lake Placid the ball with a short field to work with. They wasted little time, with Marquavein Copeland breaking off a 20-yard run and Foster Walker taking the next carry to paydirt for a 7-0 lead at the 5:14 mark of the opening quarter. Celebration went nowhere fast in itsnext possession, and on third and 15 from their own 13, a shotgun snap was mishandled. Amad dash ensued as lunging hands grasped for the tumbling ball, pushing it further and further toward the goal line. Soon enough, Malachi McLean burst ahead of the back, fell on it and ball, player and end zone came together for a second Dragon score in less than one minute and the lead was quickly at 14-0. Lake Placid would force and recover another Storm fumble and again have a short field, regaining possession at the Celebration 43. Atwo-yard Copeland run was followed by an 11-yard ground gainer by Jerry Fields, but as the second quarter soon got underway, a Robert Walton pass toward the end zone was picked off by Quentin Lewis. By STEVE KNAPP Special to the News-SunARCADIA If you have ever had a day that was so bad that you knew if you fell out of a boat you wouldnt even hit water, then you know how the Sebring Blue Streaks felt at their football game Friday night against the DeSoto Bulldogs. Sebring head coach LaVaar Scott was battling a cold as his team took the field at DeSoto County Friday night. The Blue Steaks not only battled the Bulldogs, but had to battle the challenges of being a young and inexperienced team. Were a very young team, with only having nine seniors on the team, Scott said. Were talented but inexperienced. DeSoto, by contrast, have 19 seniors on their team with a couple of them in their fourth year on the varsity squad. Their experience showed as the Bulldogs won their home opener 28-6. It was a game that the Streaks could have won if not for the several key penalties and turnovers. Leading 6-0 in the opening period, the Bulldogs intercepted a pass on their own twoyard line to stop the Streaks first drive of the game. Ascore there would have certainly shifted the momentum, which is so crucial in football. The Bulldogs were then facing a key third-and-ten situation from their own 10 when quarterback Reggie Jones picked up a first down on a 15-yard keeper. That play gave the Bulldogs another set of downs which resulted in a 90-yard drive for a score. Along Streak drive was stopped in Bulldog territory on a fourth-and-one when Bulldog linebacker Trea Tyler sacked Jair Watson for a five-yard loss to end the drive. Hes probably one of the best linebackers well see this season, said Scott. The Streaks had a punt blocked for a safety and SPORTS D SECTION Inside This Section NFL Preview . . .3D Florida girl plays QB . . .4D FTA September activities . . .4D Florida Prep Scores . . .6D News-Sun Sunday, September 2, 2012 News-Sun photo by BRITTANYWHITTINGTON Caylin Webb slams this kill in Thursdays Blue Streak sweep of visiting Frostproof. By BRITTANY WHITTINGTON News-Sun correspondentSEBRING The Lady Blue Streaks successfully took down the Lady Bulldogs in three games Thursday night in their season home opener. Thursdays match was a big difference in performance compared to last week in the Preseason Classic. When asked if she thought there was any improvement from last week, all coach Venessa Sinness could say was yes, very much so. Sebring started off with a strong lead, pulling ahead to a 3-1 run over Frostproof. Akill from senior middle Megan Lollis extended the lead to 9-6. Another kill from junior outside hitter Bella Caraballo extended the lead more to 116. Caraballo led the team with six total kills, followed by Lollis and sophomore Hannah Tucker with three each. Despite this years team being young, the athletic talent and ability is still there. There was just one thing that is missing consistency. Consistency when it comes to broken plays, says Sinness. When its not going our way whos going to step up and make that, you know, oh I dont have to swing hard, but I know where to find that hole to end the rally. Senior Paige Lewis brought the Streaks out of a slump with her eight-point serving run, allowing the young team to have a more relaxed feel for the rest of the match. According to Sinness, the future is expected to be bright for her young team. The offense, particularly in the hitting area, is expected to improve. We have some big girls, Sinness said. Lindsey (Whittington) is a new setter so were working it in. Sinness also went into detail about how strong the back row will be. We are going to be a very strong team if our defense holds up, which it has. Freshman Ansley Selander lead the pack in digs with a total of five with juniors Jordan Hinkle and Caraballo following closely behind with three apiece. As coach Sinness looks ahead into the future of what is to come, she has an anticipation of what to expect with district play. Our big thing is going to be our consistency with our hitters, said Sinness. I think our defense is going to Blue Streaks step up sweep Bulldogs See SEBRING, Page 4D Our big thing is going to be our consistency.

By JAMIE WILLIAMS Special to the News-Sun AVON PARK Turnovers, penalties, poor field position and an offense that was unable to get on track were all contributing factors in Avon Parks 27-0 loss to Frostproof Friday night at Joe Franza Stadium. The one bright spot, even though they gave up four pass plays of 20 yards or more and two for touchdowns, was the defense, that held the Bulldogs to just 250 total yards of total offense. Avon Park only managed 33 yards total offense, however, as they rushed the ball for four yards and quarterback Ryan Dick went 4-for21 for 39 yards and three interceptions. We have a rhythm offense, said Avon Park head coach Lee Brown. So consistency is something weve got to do. This is still all new to these guys, its not like we have had something firmly established, here is the routine. Brown explained that the Devils script their plays, and when the field position changes then their script changes accordingly. Poor field position forced them to use a backup script compared to the original, where they intended to push the ball a little more and do some different things. It did not help as Avon Park lost the ball on a fumble on their second play. And though the defense forced Frostpoof to punt, a roughing the punter penalty allowed the Bulldogs to keep the ball on Avon Parks 27 yard line toward the end of the first quarter. The first quarter ended scoreless, but Frostproof Frostproof cools Red Devils See AP, Page 5D

C M Y K www.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, September 2, 2012Page 3D The Indianapolis Colts drew some odd looks during the 2012 NFLDraft when they selected not one, but two tight ends in the second and third rounds. The second-round pick, Coby Fleener of Stanford, made some sense. After all, the Colts needed to replace their longtime fixture at tight end, Dallas Clark. And Fleener was one of first-round pick Andrew Lucks most trusted targets at Stanford. But with all the needs of a 2-14 team, why did the Colts use their third-round pick on another tight end, Mackey Award winner Dwayne Allen of Clemson? Because, as the New England Patriots showed last year with Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez, two-tight-end formations arent just for short-yardage and goal-line situations any more. The new wave of athletic tight ends line up on the line of scrimmage or in the slot; they also line up wide or even in the backfield before going in motion. Teams are finding big, speedy athletes with ability to not only outrun linebackers in the middle of the field but also use their size as mismatches against smaller nickel backs and slower safeties deep in the secondary. Tight ends such as Tony Gonzalez, Antonio Gates and Jason Witten have been doing that for years. But thats not enough anymore. It takes two tight ends now when teams go to multiple-receiver formations, creating matchup problems for defenses. No. 87, Gronkowski New England 66 265 lbs. College: Arizona Seasons: 3 No. 81, Hernandez New England 61 245 lbs. College: Florida Seasons: 3 1Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez for the PatriotsLeave it to New England coach Bill Belichick to create the template for this tight-end madness when he was short on wide-receiver talent. All Gronkowski, a 6-foot-6, 265-pounder, did in his second year in the league was rank second in the AFC with 90 receptions and set NFLmarks for tight ends with 17 TDs and 1,327 yards. Hernandez, also in just his second season, ranked fifth in the AFC with 79 catches, seven for TDs. Just for good measure, the Patriots signed veteran Visanthe Shiancoe. No. 87, Pettigrew Detroit 65 265 lbs.College: Oklahoma St.Seasons: 4 No. 85, Scheffler Detroit 65 255 lbs.College: W. MichiganSeasons: 7 2Brandon Pettigrew and Tony Schefflerfor the LionsWhile all-world wide receiver Calvin Johnson attracts the most attention, Pettigrew is right behind as a go-to receiver for quarterback Matthew Stafford. Pettigrew, a former first-round pick from Oklahoma State, keeps getting better every year. He ranked eighth in the NFLwith 83 receptions last year on which he picked up 777 yards and five TDs. Scheffler caught just 26 passes last year (compared with 45 in 2010), but six went for TDs, and he averaged 13.3 yards per reception. No. 85, Davis San Francisco 63 250 lbs. College: Maryland Seasons: 7 No. 46, Walker San Francisco 6 242 lbs.College: C. MissouriSeasons: 7 4Vernon Davis and Delanie Walker for the 49ersDavis spoke of lofty goals when he spoke to a group of young players recently in his hometown of Washington, D.C.: I will be the best tight end to ever play this game. I have a vision. Davis, who caught 67 passes, including six TDs last season, had a breakthrough postseason when he caught 10 passes for 292 yards and four TDs in two playoff games. Walker, from Central Missouri, has blossomed from a special-teamer to a viable option for Alex Smith, having caught 19 passes, including three TDs last year after grabbing 29 passes in 2010. No. 80, Fleener Indianapolis 66 250 lbs. College: Stanford Seasons: Rookie No. 83, Allen Indianapolis 63 255 lbs. College: Clemson Seasons: Rookie 5Coby Fleener and Dwayne Allenfor the ColtsBoth rookies figure to play a lot this season. Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians was a big proponent of regularly using two tight ends when he ran the Steelersoffense. Arians wants to move them around the field, much the way New England has used Gronkowski and Hernandez. Allen caught 93 career passes at Clemson, and 74 went for first downs. Fleener caught 34 passes as a senior at Stanford but averaged 19.6 yards per catch, including 10 TDs. He is dynamic, said college teammate and Colts quarterback Andrew Luck. HEADSHOTS COURTESYOF NFL.COM No. 80, Graham New Orleans 67 265 lbs. College: Miami Seasons: 3 No. 85, Thomas New Orleans 63 248 lbs. College: Texas Seasons: 7 3Jimmy Graham and David Thomas for the SaintsGraham, in just his second season a year ago, emerged as one of the games most dynamic tight ends, ranking third in the league with 99 receptions some of them spectacular onehanded grabs with defenders draped over his 67, 265-pound frame for 1,310 yards, including 11TDs. He was a major factor in Drew Breessetting the all-time passing yardage record with 5,476 yards. Injuries limited Thomas to five games last season, but he was a force in 2010 when he caught 30 passes, including two No. 12, Luck Indianapolis 64 235 lbs. College: Stanford 1Chan Gailey, BillsThis is a crucial year for Gailey, a former Chiefs offensive coordinator who enters year three with the Bills. With 4-12 and 6-10 seasons under Gailey, its been 12 seasons since the Bills last made the playoffs, the NFLs longest current drought. Theyre coming off a 6-10 finish after injuries and inexperience led the team to unravel, losing eight of its last nine games.2Andy Reid, EaglesEntering his 13th season, the longest tenure in the NFL, Reid should have all the security in the world. But the Eagles went 8-8 and failed to make the playoffs last year, and despite Reids track record, fans are calling for his dismissal. Reid bought himself some time by winning a front-office power play. But if the Eagles dont top the NFC East, changes could be coming.3Norv Turner, ChargersHow does he do it? Blessed with the most talent and best quarterback in the division, Turner has missed the playoffs the last two years, but somehow he keeps retaining his job. The Chargers play six of their first 10 on the road, and if they get off to another one of their miserable starts, Turner cant possibly survive again. No. 10, Griffin III Washington 62 217 lbs. College: Baylor No. 3, Weeden Cleveland 63 222 lbs. College: Oklahoma St. No. 17, Tannehill, Miami 64 222 lbs. College: Texas A&M No. 92, Poe Kansas City 63 346 lbs. College: Memphis 1QB Andrew Luck for the ColtsLuck, considered the best quarterback prospect since Hall of Famers John Elway, Dan Marino and Jim Kelly, has all the tools and pedigree to succeed Peyton Manning. Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, formerly the Coltsquarterbacks coach, said: It is scary. The family, the style of person, the style of player and what (Luck) brings to your organization is extremely comparable.2QB Robert Griffin IIIfor the RedskinsMike Shanahan went all in when he traded three firstround picks and a secondround pick to move up and take Griffin III, the Heisman Trophy winner from Baylor, with the second overall pick in the draft. Shanahm said Griffin has the ability to be a franchise quarterback for the next decade. He has everything I look for in a quarterback and in a person, Shanahan said.3QB Brandon W eedenfor the BrownsThe Browns didnt take a 28-year-old quarterback in the first round to hand him a clipboard, so Weeden is expected to be the opening-day starter. Weeden will have to beat out incumbent Colt McCoy and veteran Seneca Wallace.4QB Ryan Tannehill for the DolphinsTannehill might have started for just two seasons at Texas A&M, but he has a leg up on the Miami playbook. Former Aggies coach Mike Sherman, now the Dolphinsoffensive coordinator, installed the same West Coast offense and verbiage used in College Station. Tannehill will be the face of the team if he unseats veterans Matt Moore and David Garrard.5DT Dontari Poefor the ChiefsQuarterbacks dominated the headlines of the draft, but the Chiefs created some ripples when they selected Poe with the 11th pick of the first round. The Chiefs had a glaring need at nose tackle in their 3-4 front, so they went with need over the best player on the board.Poe didnt dominate atMemphis, but coach Romeo Crennel has a history of developing interior linemen.1Sept. 9, Pittsburgh at DenverNBC couldnt wait to get its cameras on Peyton Mannings Denver debut, and it comes against hardhitting James Harrison, who will test the strength of Mannings neck.2Sept. 23, New England at BaltimoreLee Evans isnt around anymore, but the Ravens still cant believe he couldnt hang on to a pass from Joe Flacco in the AFC Championship game last year at New England that would have sent Baltimore to the Super Bowl instead of the3Sept. 30, New Orleans at Green BayAyear ago, these two teams met on opening night, and the Packers won in a thriller 42-34. These were the two most prolific passing teams in the NFC last season.4Oct. 7, Denver at New EnglandPeyton Manning vs. Tom Brady. That was an annual November showdown (during a TV sweeps period) as well as an annual playoff matchup when Manning was with Indianapolis and was battling it out with the Patriots for AFC supremacy.5Nov. 25, San Francisco at New OrleansThis is a rematch of the Saints36-32 loss in the NFC second-round playoff game when 49ers quarterback Alex Smith outplayed Drew Brees, throwing the gamewinning TD pass to Vernon Davis with 9 seconds to play. No. 18, Manning Denver 65 230 lbs. Formerly: Indianapolis Seasons: 15 No. 94, Williams Buffalo 66 292 lbs. Formerly: Houston Seasons: 7 No. 15, Marshall Chicago 64 230 lbs. Formerly: Miami Seasons: 7 No. 39, Carr Dallas 6 210 lbs. Formerly: Kansas City Seasons: 5 No. 85, Lloyd New England 6 200 lbs. Formerly: St. Louis Seasons: 10 1QB Peyton Manning to the BroncosMannings release by the Colts and signing by the Broncos were the blockbuster moves of the offseason, and the big question in Denver is whether Manning, 36, is completely healthy after missing all of 2011 because of neck surgeries. Club VPJohn Elway and coach John Fox say they are confident Manning will return to the form that earned four MVPs, but they guaranteed only one year of his five-year, $96 million2DE Mario Williams to the BillsWilliams, the centerpiece pass rusher of the Houston Texans defense, missed the playoffs because of injury. But Williams had the last laugh when the Bills made him the highest-paid defensive player in the game with a six-year deal worth up to $96 million if he stays healthy. Williams, who had 53 sacks in six seasons at Houston, will try to help a Buffalo defense that had just 29 sacks in 2011 and allowed a franchise-worst 5,938 yards.3WR Brandon Marshall to the BearsOne of new general manager Phil Emerys first moves was trading two third-round draft picks for Marshall, a brilliant playmaker who has a long history of off-thefield problems. But Marshall has averaged 1,188 yards receiving during the last five years and will be reunited with QB Jay Cutler, with whom he enjoyed two monster seasons in 2007 and 2008.4CB Brandon Carr to the CowboysCarr developed into a solid cover corner as a four-year starter with the Chiefs and had a career-best four interceptions last year, but Kansas City decided to invest its money elsewhere. So Carr landed a five-year, $50 million free-agent deal with the Cowboys, who gave up more passing yards in the last two seasons than any two-year stretch in team history.5WR Brandon Lloyd to the PatriotsLloyd, another much-traveled receiver, will be reunited with in Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, his head coach at Denver and playcaller in St. Louis. Lloyd, 31, enjoyed his only Pro Bowl season in 2010 when he caught 77 passes for 1,448 yards and 11TDs. That was nearly double his previous career best of 733 yards in 2005. Lloyd forced a trade to St. Louis last year and caught 51 passes in 11 games.

The most important thing is that we understand that we have to continue to improve, she continued. We cant walk away from tonight thinking oh, were all that and a bag of chips.I never saw us let up, we played better the second game than we did the first game and there were no lulls. All in all, the young and fresh Sebring squad did, in fact, improve during their victory over Frostproof, and the scores bore that out with 25-10, 25-6 and 25-16 margins for the games. The Lady Blue Streaks were in Stuart this weekend for the South Fork Tournament, and will try to continue to improve as they take on the Bulldogs again Thursday, Sept. 6, in Frostproof. Continued from 1D Sebring to see Frostproof again News-Sun photo by BRITTANYWHITTINGTON Jordan Hinkle sets to make this dig in Sebrings Thursday win over Frostproof. By TIM REYNOLDS Associated PressDAVIE Ahigh school senior is believed to have b ecome the first girl to play q uarterback in a Florida regular-season game, taking two snaps Friday night. Erin DiMeglio, the thirdstringer from South Plantation High School, checked in with about 1:40 left in her teams 31-14 win over Nova. Both of her snaps came f rom the shotgun formation, and she handed the ball off each time before being replaced in the final seconds. While no official records are kept on what positions girls have played in the past on Florida high school teams about 500 girls have suited up for boyssquads across the state over the years DiMeglio is presumed to be the first quarterback to get on the field. I just do my own thing, DiMeglio said after the game, as about a dozen reporters and cameras surrounded her. Its a lot of attention, but I just kind of dont worry about that much. Fans were chanting Put Erin in! Put Erin in! during the final minutes, after South Plantation went up by 17 points in the fourth quarter. The two quarterbacks ahead of her on the teams depth chart played first, but the loudest ovation of the night seemed to be when DiMeglio checked into the game. God bless her, South Plantation coach Doug Gatewood said. She handles it better than anybody else. She goes on the field, she has single-minded focus. Its crazy. Its great publicity for the school, its a positive thing, but at the end of the day thats not why we did it. We did it because shes a legitimate third-string quarterback. Gatewood is also the flag football coach at South Plantation, and urged DiMeglio to work out with the boysvarsity last spring, saying she had a good enough arm to compete. From there, the idea was born to have her try and actually be on the team, and Gatewood eventually convinced her parents, Tom and Kathleen DiMeglio, that the potential positives outweighed any risks. Her teammates have supported her without any reservation, Gatewood said. And DiMeglio has won them over with ease, first by being a star member of the schools girls basketball team, then after football exploits such as throwing five touchdown passes in a 7on-7 tournament against boys this summer. She didnt throw any passes on Friday night. With her team up big in the final moments, she didnt have to, either. It was exciting, said DiMeglios sister, Amy DiMeglio, who was on the sideline with her parents. I think any exposure during the game is good. You saw how the crowd reacted. People are getting more comfortable with the idea. Some people blog about her and theres negative comments, some inappropriate comments. People need to get over her being a girl and just look at her abilities. Thats what she wants.

Several Bulldog drives were aided by penalties and mistakes. To show how things went s o wrong for the Streaks, starting linebacker Anthony Wiggins injured himself in warmups when his knee just gave out on him. I hate to use excuses but our injuries are killing us as we have to move people around and their inexperience shows, Scott said. This team is so much better than they showed tonight. We have to stop beating ours elves. When we had that drive for the touchdown we played smash-mouth football. When we do that we are a good team. The touchdown for the Streaks was scored by Jake Bryan on a two-yard plunge at the 7:08 mark in the second period. Weve got a lot of work to do. We have got to execute thats all there is to it, Bryan said. Weve got the athletes but we have just got to execute. Were going to come back next week and get a win. The Streaks had several good drives as they had their big backs pound the middle for yardage. Their receivers were open but passes were just barely off target. They held the Bulldogs to no passing yardage and blocked a punt and had several turnovers in their favor, but were just unable to put it all together. Just when the Streaks got something going, a big penalty would end the drive. We have to stop beating ourselves. Ive got to find somebody to lead this team, Scott concluded. Weve got potential, Ive just got to get them to believe. Sebring gets itshome schedule for the regular season started Friday with a visit from another set of Bulldogs, the Frostproof variety. Continued from 1D Courtesy photo Sebring receiver Ladante Harris shakes off two Bulldogs as he gets outside for a nice gain against DeSoto Friday. Streaks to face more Bulldogs Whereas the Dragons had a couple short fields to work with in the early going, the Storm was backed up at its own four. But they made short work of that as quarterback William Santry lofted one down the left sideline toward 6-foot-3 wideout Johnny Victor. The defensive back in coverage lost his footing and Victor coasted under it, hauled it in and took it 76 yards to the Lake Placid 20. T wo plays later, the Santry-Victor combo seemed to have hooked up again, this time for a touchdown, but offsetting penalties negated it. Two incompletions later, the drive came to an end. But the next Dragon possession was short lived things started to get off track as a punt from their own 21 was blocked and Celebration took over at the 14. After two negative gains and an illegal motion penalty, Santry found the rangy Victor again in the end zone, and this time it stood up, and the lead was cut to 14-6 with 6:51 left to play in the half. The momentum shift continued when Lake Placid lost a fumble on its next possession, giving the Storm the ball at the Dragon 33. On third-and-10, Santry found Stefano Saragusa over the middle for a 13-yard gain and, after a three-yard David Akins run, Tevin Carrington took it around the right side for a 20-yard score, cutting the lead ever more at 14-12, where it would stand at halftime. It looked like the downward trend would continue as three plays into the second half, Lake Placid gave it up again on a fumble, and Celebration would march it to the Dragon two. But then everything would change. The defense, back up against the wall, stiffened, halting the next charge toward the goal line, knocking the ball loose and getting it back. With the offense backed up as well, it was back to the basics as a smash-mouth, turf-churning drive would turn things around. After Walton gained seven on a quarterback keeper to get some breathing room, McLean charged forward for another seven yards. Walker broke into the open for a 26-yard run, and junior Eldon McKenzie bullrushed over the Storm defenders for 36 yards on three straight carries. Three short runs got it to the Celebration 14, though a motion penalty put it back at the 19, and McKenzie rattled off a sevenand sixyarder to get it to the six. Walton then finished the drive as it started, keeping it and getting into the end zone. The 14-play drive took more than seven minutes off the clock and upped the lead to 20-12, with just over one minute left in the quarter. The next Storm possession did bridge into the fourth, but was over quickly, putting their assuredly tired defense back on the field with little time to regain their breath. And even if they had, McKenzie soon knocked it back out of them as wouldbe tacklers were continually being left in a wake of fallen bodies. Hes a a great young man and tough, Holden said. Hes still learning and hes a quiet kid, but hes a strong runner and very hard to bring down. A21-yard carry got the next drive started, with a 26yarder run for three plays later to get it to the threeyard line. Walker would do the honors, though, and the lead was up to 26-12 with 7:11 left to go. The Dragon defen se would hold, forcing a punt, and the offense kept things on the ground, save for a 20yard Walton to Ricky Miller pass, to eat up the clock and put the clamps on the season-opening win. The kids really came back and played tough, Holden said. We had that lull in the second and early in the third and they were on the verge of taking the lead. But when they needed to, they made the plays and turned it around, he continued. Weve still got to tighten things up and not turn the ball over. Some of these teams will be playing, mistakes like that will get us beat. But if these guys keep improving like they have been, and keep playing hard, well be all right. Lake Placid next faces the Terriers of Moore Haven at home Friday, Sept. 7.

News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Malachi McLean pounces on this loose ball for a touchdown in the first quarter of Fridays 26-12 Lake Placid win. scored early in the second on a four-yard screen pass from Xavier Gaines to Kaleel Gaines. At this point in the proceedings, the Avon Park offense had been on the field just once and had run two plays. They would start their next drive on their 11 and be forced to punt after three plays from their 15 yard line. Frostproof returned the punt back to Avon Parks 18-yard line and would score a few minutes later on a one-yard touchdown run up the middle by Gaines. The Bulldogs failed on the extra point attempt and now led 13-0. It did not get much better for the Red Devil offense on their next possession. Aholding penalty pushed them back to their own 10yard line and then the ball was snapped over the head of the quarterback and out of the end zone on the next play. The safety increased Frostproofs lead to 15-0 and they would get the ball back. The Avon Park defense held firm and then blocked an ensuing field goal attempt to keep the deficit at 15-0. But, with less than a minute to go in the first half, Frostproof intercepted a pass in Avon Park territory. Two plays later, Reggie Allen caught a 32 yard touchdown pass from Gaines to push the lead to 21-0 at the end of the first half. The time of possession for the first half was decidedly in the Bulldogs favor as the Devils had the ball for less than five minutes, compared to Frostproofs nearly 20 minutes. As the Avon Park offense continued to struggle, Frostproof put together their longest drive of the game. Toward the end of the third quarter, the visitors put together an eight-play drive that ended early in the fourth quarter with a two-yard touchdown run that padded Frostproofs lead to 27-0. Frostproof executed, said Brown. They ran the ball well and used the pass on some big plays. The game is built on field position. If you give that away you are not going to play well. Brown stated that he was disappointed with the loss, but now they have to get ready for their next game. I understand what we are trying to accomplish, he said. And in fairness to the players, it is my responsibility to stick to that and that is what we are going to do. Avon Park plays in Wauchula Friday against the Hardee Wildcats.
