But Amelia wasnt the first baby to die from hyperthermia, or heat stroke, after being left inside a vehicle. And, tragically, she wont be the last. Jan Null, a published meteorologist and professor at San Francisco State University, has made a career of studying weather and the consequences it often creates. One of my major research areas is the dynamics of how hot vehicles can get and the tracking of hyperthermia deaths of children in vehicles, Null told the News-Sun.

While conventional wisdom inside the United Statesi s that the war in Afghanistan is winding down, the image of Cartwright and his black Lab scouring the countrys unfor-g iving terrain for bombs that kill and maim troops and c ivilians, including children, challenges our perception ofa conflict entering its 12th year. The first thing I have to do is get educated on the Talibans tactics, as I justk now they have changed, Cartwright wrote. (Im hoping at the age of five, (Isaac and experienced to bring ush ome one more time. While confronting a ruthless enemy, Cartwright admits to also battling the scars of his first deployment, which included finding bombs that terrorists intentionally buried near schoolsa nd hospitals. The flashbacks and memo ries are strongly on my mind, he wrote. (I know the dangers that Isaac and Iw ill soon be facing again. Cartwright and Isaac serve w ith the Engineer Canine Company of the Armys 5th Engineer Battalion, which h as consistently proved itself as one of Americas elite defenses against enemy IEDs. My wife said, I am more a t ease knowing that they are sending one of the best teams again, Cartwright wrote. Even though they comp leted a previous Afghanistan deployment, the A rmy, which is focused on countering the evolvingT aliban threat, made sure the soldier and his dog underwent months of pre-deployment training. Once they arrived in the war zone, thep reparations continued. wo weeks have gone by of intense training, Cartwright wrote. We now stand ready to go out ands upport NATO and coalition forces.

New documents CO MMUNITYBR IEFS C ontinued on page 5A S ee PAIR, page 5A Special to the News-SunSeptember marks the official launch of Crime Stoppers Month. Crime Stoppers is an international program that operates in some 26 countries around the world including 350 local Crime Stoppers programs throughout the United Stated that have a common goal to resolve crime through anonymous tips. Our focus today remains similar to when Crime Stoppers started in 1976, and that is to make our communities safer and more secure for everyone, said K. Scott Abrams, chairman of Crime Stoppers USA. Crime Stoppers brings together businesses, citizens, law enforcement and the media to combat crime. It is important for the criminal element to know members of the community are watching and reporting their activities. Abrams said the Crime Stoppers concept also encourages a cooperative partnership between law enforcement, the media and the community to ensure security and enhance our quality of life. Crime Stoppers has helped solve over 946,000 crime across the nation. By encouraging citizens to help reduce crime by combining media awareness, monetary rewards in anonymity for tipsters, Crime Stoppers has created an effective method for solving crimes and helping take back control over their neighborhoods. In the first 6 months of 2012, Heartland Crime Stoppers which covers Polk, Highlands and Hardee counties has received 917 tips resulting in 128 arrests. Those arrests have been for theft, burglary, identity theft, drugs, robbery and even homicide. Additionally, drugs valued at $30,499 have been seized during the same time frame. Highlands County Sheriff Susan Benton, a long-time supporter of the Crime Stoppers Program, had this to say about Crime Stoppers: Crime Stoppers is a valuable tool in fighting crime and keeping with our vision of a safer Highlands CountyWhen citizens, especially our youth, can make an anonymous call to report information without fear of retaliation this provides for safety all around, said Highlands County Sheriff Susan Benton. Our deputies have the opportunity to review and verify each tip and take the appropriate actions to solve crime and put those responsible behind bars. If anyone has any information on any unsolved crime and wants to stay anonymous, they can call 1-800226 TIPS (8477 If that tip results in an arrest, or the recovery of stolen property, or drugs, they are eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.

Veteran Services Office hosts seminar C lassified Ads 385-6155 NEWS-SUN B y GARYFINEOUT Associated Press TALLAHASSEE The Obama administration is agreeing to a proposal that will reduce the number of early voting days in five Florida counties that are covered by the federal Voting Rights Act. The Justice Department decision ends a lengthy battle over a controversial election law passed by the GOP-controlled state Legislature last year. The department late Wednesday notified a federal court in Washington, D.C., that it approved a Florida plan to provide 96 hours of early voting over eight days in Hillsborough, Collier, Hendry, Hardee and Monroe counties. Justice Department or federal court approval is required for any changes in election laws affecting those counties due to a history of past racial discrimination in those areas. The D.C. court had previously raised questions about Floridas plan to cut the number early voting days. Justice Dept. approves states early voting plan Plan to provide 96 hours of early voting in counties covered by act Associated PressNEWYORK New York Citys Board of Health opened up a new, experimental front in thew ar on obesity Thursday, passing a rule banning sales of big sodas and other sugary drinks at restaurants, concessions tands and other eateries. The regulation, which was proposed in thes pring by Mayor Michael Bloomberg and approved by panel of health expertsa fter several months of review, puts a 16-ounce s ize limit on cups and bottles of non-diet soda, sweetened teas, and otherc alorie-packed beverages. The ban will apply in f ast-food joints, movie houses and Broadway theaters, workplace cafeterias, and most other places selling prepared food. I t doesnt cover beverages sold in supermarkets o r most convenience stores. The restaurant and beve rage industries have assailed the plan as misg uided. They say the citys health experts are exagg erating the role sugary beverages have played in making Americans fat. One board member, Dr. Sixto R. Caro, abstainedf rom voting. The other eight board members voted yes. I am still skeptical. This is not comprehensivee nough, said Caro, a doctor of internal medicine w ho practices in Brooklyn and Manhattan. S ome New Yorkers have also ridiculed the rule as a gross government intrusion and tens of thousands signed a peti-t ion, circulated by the industry, voicing their opposition. The unprecedented regulation would followo ther ambitious health moves on Bloombers watch. Some have proven to be national pacesetters, such as making chain restaurants post calorie counts prominently on their menus; McDonalds announced Wednesday that it would start displaying the information nationwide next week, before a federal requirement that could force all major chains to do so next year.

The state should accept the courts decision, because itr emoves an obstacle to ambitious young Floridians pursui ng higher education. Florida charges out-ofstate students four times orm ore what Florida residents pay to attend a public college o r university. This encourages Floridians to remain in the state for their education and careers, and it rewards the states investment of tax dollars in its institutions of higher learning. But undert he rules, establishing residency for students under age 24 depends on the legal status of their parents. Illegal immigrantschildren who are U.S. citizens and may haver esided in Florida their entire lives are told they are out of l uck when applying to state schools as residents. They have to pay the higher rate. F ixing this unfair policy would have been a cinch for a ny Legislature not in the sway of extreme anti-immigration forces. But despite multiple years of effort and a nudge by former Gov. Jeb Bush to consider the issue, the discriminatory policy hasr emained in force, hampering the aspirations of potentially thousands of Floridas young people, many of them Hispanic. The relief granted by the f ederal court rectifies a wrong with a straightforward r eading of the federal Equal Protection Clause. U.S. District Judge K. MichaelM oore rejected the tuition policy on behalf of a number o f young people caught in its grip, saying that the state must treat all U.S. citizens equally. Moore found that the tuition differential for stud ents with illegal-immigrant parents does not advance a ny legitimate state interest, much less the states important interest in furthering educational opportunities for its own residents. Moreover,t his is not a state benefit flowing to illegal immig rants, Moore said. The students, not the parents, benefit from the in-state tuition. ... Floridas Department of Education has not said whether it will appeal the court ruling, but it would be l egally foolish and a waste of taxpayer money to fight it. The court did what the Legislature should have done. It got rid of an illegal a nd counterproductive policy. Consider it a gift to the state and let the ruling stand. A n editorial from the Tampa Bay Times. State should let tuition ruling stand When a Florida Senate committee rejected an effort earlier this year to stop charging higher out-of-state tuition to the American-born children of Floridas i llegal immigrant residents, it embodied the worst anti-immigrant elements of the Republican Party. Consider Flecks qualificationsEditor: When you think of our countys government responsibilities, what could be more important than the education of our children? These young people are the future leaders of this great American nation. Keeping that in mind, I feel that it is imperative that voters receive as much information about all candidates that are running for office in our school system so they can make comparisons between the candidates and make the best possible choice for the positions. In 1993-94 school yea,r Dr. Thomas Knowles, principal at Lake Placid Middle School, requested that Rebecca (Becky Placid Middle School as his assistant principal. Dr. Knowles was just appointed principal and he had worked with Mrs. Fleck previously. He knew that Mrs. Fleck was experienced in budgeting, student scheduling, classroom management, curriculum and instruction, exceptional education curriculum, and discipline. This began her journey at Lake Placid Middle School as an administrator. Being the principals administrative confidential secretary and school bookkeeper, I worked very close with Mrs. Fleck and quickly realized Dr. Knowles had made an excellent choice. During her journey at Lake Placid Middle, the school was awarded the Red Carpet School award. Mrs. Fleck was chosen as Floridas Assistant Principal of the Year. Lake Placid Middle was very honored to be a part of Commissioner of Education Brogans presentation to Mrs. Fleck at Lake Placid Middle School. When Dr. Knowles accepted a college professors position, Mrs. Fleck was appointed as principal at Lake Placid Middle. She quickly surrounded herself with an excellent faculty and s taff. She felt that each position at her school was an important position. Each staff member contributed to the education of the students instructional and support staff. With her experience in budgeting, student scheduling, classroom management, curriculum and discipline the students at Lake Placid Middle prospered and LPMS was selected as one of the Top 100 Wired Schools in the United States by Family PC Magazine. Mrs. Fleck has made her journey through the trenches and knows all aspects of educating children from a beginning exceptional education teacher, assistant principal, principal, director of the HCSBs MIS Department and presently assistant superintendent. Now it is time for all voters to compare the candidates qualifications and choose the person with the best qualifications to be the leader of our childrens future. Please consider the qualifications that has guided Rebecca Fleck on her journey in education for the students of Highlands County. Cassie Simpson Lake Placid Highlands County School Board Employee Retired Look forward, not backwardEditor: Once again the News-Sun has chosen to print the ranting of Sandy Oleesky. She consistantly berates the Republician Party but fails to mention the disastrous four years under President Obama. This a short but incomplete list: Engages in a war with Lybia without Congress approval Uses every corrupt, devious, and underhanded means to ram through Obamacare against the majority Reforms welfare defying a written law Refuses to defend existing laws, his s worn duty Uses stimulus money to reward political allies Threatens the Supreme Court whenever they rule against him Funds and conspires with employee unions to command electorial outcomes against the majority Destroyed our allies in Egypt allowing the Muslim Brotherhood to set up shop Does nothing to secure the future of entitlement programs for our children and grandchildren but instead raids the Social Security trust fund. Which would you rather have, four more years of lying, trampling on the Constitution, and pushing us deeper in debt or the hope that a new man can get us back on track and save the United States of America? We need to look forward, not backward and the decision is easy for me.

S peaking for everyone here at the News-Sun, Ills ay for myself that I miss you. I count the days until you get back, and not j ust because Sam Gholar and I are having to work h arder. No, its that you are such an upbeat, inexhaustible, insightful and funny man the newsroom is drab andd ull without you bustling around. I miss your truly terrible, absolutely awful puns and jokes. I even miss your themed comedy routines. For example, that weekw hen every joke was about fish. What do you call fish w ith no eyes? Fsh. I miss our editorial meetings, which morph into philosophical discussions, even though youre an AynR and fan and Im more into John Maynard Keynes. Ed, talking to you has challenged my preconceptions, forced me to lookf rom a different perspective. I learn things talking with you. I miss your passion, your energy, your perseverance; your commitment to the truth and to open and effective government and your almost scholarly understanding of the esoteric inner workings of government and its rules. I especially look forward to when you get back and can decipher the arithmetic of official budgets for me again. R emember on the bad days, the v ery qualities that make you a wonderful colleague,r eporter, husband and father are the v ery qualities that are seeing you through youro rdeal. Those of columns yours written in the hospital a nd rehab for heavens sake are perfect proof of w hat Ive just said. You may find the praise embarrassing, but you are a role model for everyone coming back from a med-i cal misfortune. Your sense of humor, your courage, strength of character and persistence all of which you have up the whazoo is inspiring. The rest of us should all k eep those qualities in mind when our bad luck t urn arrives, which it will. As for the people who refer to you as BALDridge between clenched teeth as smokec omes out their ears, who thought, with relief, theyd never have to answer questions from you again, go ahead and disappoint them. M r. Ed, your desk has a reserved sign on it.

C M Y K B y KATE BRUMBACK Associated PressATLANTA Florida A &M Universitys insistence that it is not to blame for a d rum majors death during a hazing ritual shows schoolo fficials are not taking responsibility for the safety of students, the band members parents said Thursday. Pam and Robert Champion S r. said during a news conference in Atlanta that they were disappointed by court documents filed Monday by FAMU in response to theirl awsuit against the school. The university said in its filing that 26-year-old Robert Champion, as a top leader in the band, should have refused to participate in the ritual. The school asked a judge to toss the lawsuit or at least to delay action on it until criminal charges against band members are resolved. Twelve former members have pleaded not guilty to charges of felony hazing. As a mother, I have to wonder what kind of people are we entrusting our students to, Pam Champion said. They clearly didnt care about my son, who thought the world of this school, who would always promote it and talk it up. Robert did all the right things. The school didnt do him right. Her husband called the schools response a slap in the face. This is an opportunity for the school to say we do have problems and were going to fix it, but instead theyre in denial, so I say FAMU beware, he said. Robert Champion died in November after he was beaten by fellow members of the famed Marching 100 band aboard a charter bus parked outside an Orlando hotel. The school said in its filing that no public university or college has a duty to protect an adult student from what happens as a result of that persons own decisions to participate in dangerous activities off campus and outside of university-sponsored events. Chris Chestnut, a lawyer representing the Champions, said the school is refusing to address the root problem. AMU wants to make this about Robert Champion. TheC hampions have lost their son. This is about the decades o f hazing that led up to Roberts death and the decades beyond this point where theres an opportunityf or FAMU to rid itself of hazing and still have a very succ essful band program. Violence Awareness by putting together a Purple Light Nights campaign. Peace River Outreach S pecialist Laura Hawthorne is heading the campaign and has big plans to increase awareness surrounding domestic violence in thea rea. Throughout the month of October, Peace River will be selling (taking donations purple light bulbs. The bulbss hould be placed in the lamppost of businesses and homes to show support ofd omestic violence awareness. I heard about it through a nother organization. I know that they do it over in the F ort Myers area. I just thought it would be a good idea to spread awareness,H awthorne said. October has become most k nown for another the breast cancer awareness campaign with millions of supporters. Hawthorne finds the situation a challenging one. When people see the purple ribbons they dont knoww hat they are for. We want to change that. We are hoping that when people see these purple lights on these businesses theyll ask Whatst hat for?and theyll become aware and informed, Hawthorne said. e would like to see purple lights shining throughw indows, on porches, at the front doors, or around the streets of residents and businesses in Highlands County Each of the purple lights w ill help with the promotion of domestic violence awaren ess. Bulbs are now on sale and may be purchased through Peace River Center. Asingle bulb is $4, a twopack of bulbs is $7 and a string of purple lights is $20.T o purchase bulbs contact Hawthorne at 386-1168. Currently, Peace River Center is at capacity. The Safehouse holds up to 15p eople, though Hawthorne says they will work to accommodate those in need. e never turn any one away. We will try to fit themi n however we can, said Hawthorne. We want everyone to know that domestic violence has no place in our community. This will help with raising the awareness. F unds raised through the Domestic Violence Purple L ight Nights campaign go directly to the Peace River shelter.

C M Y K Page 8ANews-SunFriday, September 14, 2012www.newssun.com A melias father, Christopher Sneed King, 34, was arrested Tuesday andc harged with aggravated manslaughter of a child and c hild neglect resulting in great bodily harm. According to arrest r eports, King told investigators that his 4-year-old son put Amelia in the truck while h e was inside his home at 5 07 Ryan Road. The son, however, reportedly told investig ators that King took the children to the store to get a lighter and left Amelia in the truck for a long time. She died of heat stroke, the medical examiner said. F or decades Null has been studying the tragic deaths of c hildren due to hyperthermia and has revealed startling statistics on the subject. ith an outside air temperature of about 92 degreeso n Friday in Sebring, the inside air temperature of the car would have been as high as 135 degrees. Objects or a person inside the car in directs unlight would have been significantly hotter, Null said. The arrest report said that Amelias back was still hot to the touch even after almost 90 minutes inside an air-conditioned ambulance. Amelia is the second death due to heat stroke in Florida this year. Four weeks ago, 4year-old Jordan Coleman was left in a day care van fora pproximately two hours in Broward County. A melias death is the 28th death this year due to hyperthermia in vehicles. According to Null, at least 555 deaths of infants andc hildren have occurred since 1988; 59 of the deaths have occurred in Florida. Florida currently ranks in fourth for hyperthermia deaths of chil-d ren in vehicles just behind Nevada, Arizona and Arkansas. Atotal of 39 children die each year due to car-related heat stokes. University of South Florida professor of neuroscience David Diamond authored an article on the subject in July 2011. Diamond studied 50 of the cases of child death from hyperthermia as a result ofb eing left in cars. Diamonds research showed that in each case otherwise good parents experiencing a combination of sleep deprivation, stress, and change in routine had suffered a memory lapsea nd as a result neglected to remove their child from the v ehicle. F lorida law states that it is unlawful to leave a child age 6 or younger unattended in a vehicle for more than 15 minu tes. Currently, only 12 states have laws that specifically prohibit parents from leavingi nfant and toddlers in vehicles alone. Several states are now actively working on j oining those states and working to create laws to protect children. The head of the mission is a group known as Kids and Cars. Founder and president Janette Fennell continues to be an advocate for the cause. Were trying to get people to realize it is just as dangerous to leave a child alone in a vehicle as it is to leave him near a body of water said Fennell. There are more states that make it illegal to leave an animal alone in a car than a child. There has to be a specific law to make it illegal to leave a child alone. We want people to understand the dangers.

The victim reportedly told his mother to give him a ride, but she said the only vehicle available was a stick shift, which she didnt know how to drive. Larry Ellis kept shouting, the report said, demanding that he be given a ride. At that point, James Ellis told Larry Ellis that if he kept it up James Ellis was going to get the gun and shoot him. Larry Ellis continued to talk, the report said, so James Ellis got up, went to the bedroom, returned with a shotgun and shot the victim. Larry Ellis dropped to the floor, then got up and ran outside. He was found lying in the driveway of an adjacent residence with severe injuries to his left arm/elbow as well as a large injury/hole in his left torso. He was flown to an out-of-county hospital for surgery. James Ellis was charged with attempted first degree murder. Continued from page 1A the vehicles, both the truck ( Perry used routinely at work) and the electric bubble car(Perry the field. They opened the glove compartment,s earched behind the seats, and looked under the seats. The lawsuit states that Perry did not protest the search of the vehicles, butd id protest when she was told her handbag must be searched too. Perry alleges she was told by Lister that as an employ-e e of the city, she had no rights in the matter. Perry told the News-Sun t hat, in fact, her handbag was searched and everything inside scrutinized.T he lawsuit goes into considerable detail regarding t he alleged incident. Deleon told the NewsSun Thursday morning thatb ecause the case is under litigation he had to limit his r esponse. He did say, however, It is my understanding no one searched Mrs. Perrys purse. He added, The citys written VehicleU sepolicy, which Mrs. Perry signed in 2009, s pecifically states, The city reserves the right to inspect or search city-owned orc ity-leased vehicles at any time at the citys election. E mployees should have no expectation of privacy in the use of a city-owned or c ity-leased vehicle. Deleon said Perry was the only employee, among five or six also having vehicles inspected, to protest the search. The city denies that any city employee violated the law as alleged by Mrs. Perry, Deleon said. Robert Grizzard II, P errys attorney, told the News-Sun another aspect of the lawsuit has to do with alleged prejudiced behavior toward woman in general,a nd older women in general on Deleons part. While originally in the field, Perry said she had been shifted to office works ome time ago. The lawsuit alleges that Deleon when he wasd irector of Public Works assigned Perry, and another female employee over 50y ears of age, to paint and clean out three rat infested b uildings, including the waste water treatment plant, which building had not beenc leaned nor painted in 25 years. The suit further c laims the women were not provided with protective equipment, including gloves. Perry told the News-Sun, s he has since been assigned to outdoor field work t asks like pulling weeds or watering trees four eighthour days a week, despites till recovering from cancer and radiation and chemot herapy treatments. The lawsuit cites two other older women who r eport the same type of experience. Regarding the changes in job description, Deleon said, During the last two years, a s part of a re-organization we updated and changed (as many as 11) job descriptions. In applicable cases, w e provided the employee and the union with notice and provided (an opportunity) for any comments or s uggestions. Deleon had r eceived no comments or suggestions from Perry. Furthermore, he said the charges of alleged prejudiced behavior toward older women have no merit. He again references the reorganization and restructuring of 11 jobs, not the individua ls involved. D eleon said Perrys law suit came only after she hadb een disciplined for conducting non-city (and union business on city taxpayer time, and only after beingn otified she was under investigation for continuing i nfractions. P erry is vice-president of the local Association of C ounty Federal State and Municipla Employees chapt er. She told the News-Sun it is her opinion the city is trying to break the union. In the last three years, she said, seven union officers have b een forced to leave city employment. G rizzard said he has received no answer from either the city or any of the individuals named in the lawsuit, although they had been served notice. C ontinued from page 1A Arrest made following shooting Lawsuit filed by city employee By MARTIN CRUTSINGER APEconomics WriterWASHINGON The Federal Reserve unleashed a series of aggressive actions Thursday intended to stimulate the still-weak economy by making it cheaper for consumers and businesses to borrow and spend. The Fed said will spend $40 billion a month to buy mortgage-backed securities for as long as it deems necessary. It plans to keep shortterm interest at record lows through mid-2015 six months longer than it previously had planned. And its ready to take other unconventional steps if job growth doesnt pick up. Astatement from the Feds policy committee said it thinks a highly accommodative stance of monetary policy will remain appropriate for a considerable time after the economic recovery strengthens. The committee announced the series of bold steps after a two-day meeting. Its actions pointed to how sluggish the economy remains more than three years after the Great Recession ended. Stock prices rose on the news. But some economists said they thought the benefit to the economy would be slight. e doubt it will be enough to get the economy on the right track, said Paul Ashworth, an economist at Capital Economics. Its onlya matter of time before speculation begins as to when the Fed will raise its purchases from $40 billion a month. The Dow Jones industrial average was up nearly 100 points shortly after the announcement at 12:30 p.m. Eastern time. The dollar dropped against major currencies, and the price of gold shot up about $16 an ounce, roughly 1 percent, to $1,750. Fed unveils plan to buy more bonds

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comIt seems the rebuilding process of Lake Placid volleyball is on the fast track after Tuesdays five-set win at DeSoto. Having had to replace six players from last years squad, head coach Linette Wells knew it might take some time for experience and teamwork build toward positive results. Things started out very positively, with a split of their two matches at the Sebring Preseason Classic and consecutive home and away wins over Clewiston to start the season. But heading in to face the Lady Bulldogs, there were two other factors working against the Dragons. First, as reigning district champs with not nearly as much of a roster turnover, DeSoto was the presumptive favorite as the team to beat this season. Secondly, as Wells herse lf South Florida falls to Hawks Special to the News-SunAVON PARK The Highlands Youth Footballa nd Cheer Organization (HYFC C ity Rattlers at Joe Franza Stadium in Avon Park on S aturday, Sept. 8. The Eagles lost the first t hree games but the Junior Varsity and Varsity teams came out victorious. The first game featured the undefeated Flag team that had been averaging 28 points a game. With a strong offensive drive, the Rattlers took an early lead but the Eagles quickly responded with a score of their own by Fred Hankerson. The offense rallied together earning additional scores by John Alexander and Hankerson. The defense made their presence known and stood strong with key defensive tackles by Romeo Castellanos, Julian Cardoso and Willie King. But the Rattlers strong offensive game led to the first loss of the season for this flag team with a final score of 32-18. With the loss, the Eagles flag team record is 3-1 and in second place in the NFC division of the Sunshine PALLakeland League. The next game featured the Mighty Mights. The Eagles offense took the field focused and determined after last weeks loss to the Gators, with quarterback Graisin Wheelock handing off the ball to Taivion Coston and Alex Pollard who rushed for several yards throughout the day. The Eagle defense fought hard with solid tacking by Xavier Mobley, Ronnie Roberts and three sacks by Coston. But the Rattlers defensive stance, costly turnovers and penalties thwarted all the Eagles efforts to get into the end zone bringing the Eagles another upsetting loss. The final score of 33-0 brought their record to 1-3 placing them in a three-way tie for third place in the division. The third game of the day was the undefeated Pee Wee team which started the day off with a 47-yard touchOne of my last trips to Lake Okeechobee was in 2005, fishing an ESPN Tournament out of Clewiston. I had found fish in a small, hidden pocket of water between the Fourth Point and the Indian Prairie Canal a week earlier and I was anxious to return to the s pot for this tournament. W e were boat number no. 13 going out the next morning, and racing to my spot, we found the fish were still there. We started catching fish with our first few casts and b oth my partner and I had our limits and were culling b y 9 a.m. By noon, I had well over 24 pounds in my five-bass limit and my partner had close to 21 pounds. By 1 p.m., given the wind had kicked up, we decided to head back in early. Heading out of our secret spot into the main lake, we were greeted with 3-4 foot w aves and even in my 21 foot Ranger, running full speed was next to impossible. We rode the waves at 25 mph for about a mile when my 225 Mercury Optimax sent out a warning beep and then died. Trying to restart the engine proved futile, and we drifted along with the waves as we watched the minutes tick by. Eventually another boater stopped and gave us a tow, but we were 27 minutes lat e for the weigh-in, disqualified and never got to weigh in o ur fish. It was a disappointing blow for both of us. My weight would have been a solid third place and my partner, who fished as an amateur would have likely won or at the least, come in second. Six months later I moved to Ohio. That was about seven years ago, and although Iveb een back in Florida since April of this year, I hadnt made a trip to Lake Okeechobee yet. I decided it was time last Saturday, so I got everything r eady Friday night and by first light Saturday morning, I was casting a chug bug near Bird Island. T he water seemed high, although I had nothing to go by but memory. I dont normally launch my boat at Harney Pond, on the West side of the big lake.

Dragons overcome illness, DeSoto See LP, Page 4B By BRITTANY WHITTINGTON News-Sun correspondentAVONPARK The Lady Red Devils hosted the Bulldogs of Frostproof in what ended up being a grudge match Tuesday night. It seemed as though Avon Park was going to easily sweep Frostproof, but they were clearly mistaken. The Red Devils started out the match with a fivepoint run. An ace by sophomore Otishia Smith increased the score to 8-3. The Bulldogs were able to go on a short run, but was halted quickly with a time out. Apair of kills by juniors Otaysha Smith and Brianna Roque soon closed the set at 25-12. The second set started off with a side out by Avon Park. The Lady Red Devils were set on fire as they quickly pulled away from the Lady Bulldogs with a series of kills and aces. Akill by senior Kayla Wilson brought the lead to 7-4. The points continued to rise as senior captain Teresa Devlin served an ace making it 13-7. The final side out of the set was granted to Avon Park with an Otishia Smith kill bringing the score to 16-9. The Lady Red Devils were able to keep the Lady Bulldogs in single digits as the set finished at 25-9. After blowing the Bulldogs away in the first two sets, the Bulldogs bit back to steal away a third set from the Red Devils. Things looked as though they were shining pretty bright in the beginning for Avon Park and it showed to be true with a Lady Devils, Streaks dig up wins See VB, Page 4B

C M Y K put it, half the team is sick. There was a lot of substituting and moving players around because a lot of my starters were sick, she added. But the girls never gave up and it was really fun to watch. Fun, as well as productive, as Lake Placid pulled out the win in five sets to open the district schedule in fine fashion. The team looked to be healthier and build upon the surprisingly quick success with Thursdays home match against Mulberry before heading up US 27 for a crosscounty tilt with Sebring on Tuesday, Sept. 18. Progress is going a bit slower a bit further north along the Highlands County corridor as South Florida State College fell in four sets to Hillsborough Tuesday. Things started well, with a Kendall Baum kill getting them an early lead. After falling behind to the Lady Hawks, the Panthers clawed back into it with a Malea Kalina kill helping draw the team to within 1110. SFSC fought to keep it close behind kills from Brittany Hill, Kalina and Baum, but a couple of late runs helped Hillsborough pull away for a 25-18 win. Then, down 4-2 early in the second set, Hill went down with an ankle injury after a hustling collision at the net. The Panthers soon tied it at 4-4 on a Brittany Cherrington block, but the Hawks soon took flight, putting together a big run to break it out to a 16-7 lead. Hardee grad Eryn Mahoney halted the run with an ace, but the tone of this contest was set as Hillsborough kept rolling on to a 25-13 win. But rather than pack it in for the night, South Florida was back at it, keeping things close, though trailing, in the early going of the third set. Which was when the former Lady Wildcat Mahoney took over. Within to short scoring runs, the 5-11 sophomore recorded a block, two kills and an ace to put the Panthers up 13-10. Later, with the Hawks battling back, two more Mahoney mashes kept her squad up. Then, with the Lady Panthers holding a 22-19 lead, an extended volley took place, with numerous hustling saves and scoring attempts put together by both sides. And as the ball remained aloft as the seconds ticked by, there was the growing sense that a big momentum shift would go to the winner of the point. And when that point became South Floridas 23rd, the home crowd and bench erupted alike and riding the wave of elation, the Panthers soon put away the 25-21 win. But the emotion of the moment soon dissipated as the Lady Hawks, battle tested from a recent barnstorming trip through Texas, regrouped and ran out to a 5-0 lead in what would be the deciding fourth set. Page 4BNews-SunFriday, September 14, 2012w ww.newssun.com Id forgotten that once you get out on the lake its like being on an ocean. Looking east from the Dupree Bar, you cant see the other shore. My second cast rewarded me with a nice two-pounder, and as I released him back in the water, I couldnt help noticing the attention I was getting from five alligators who obviously considered this to be their home, and the fish likely candidates for d inner. This was a nice area to fish, with 3-4 feet of water, alive with baitfish, pinfish and bass. The water had pockets of hydrilla and short, thin reeds, providing open spots to cast my topwater bait. I switched to a Johnson Spoon with a yellow Uncle Josh pork rind and nailed another 2 pound fish on the south side of the island. Fish were busting the surface all around me so I decided to try a Johnny ONeil Weedwing with a number 11 Uncle Josh pork chunk. The Weedwing had always been one of my favorite lures when I was younger, but the days of a 1,000 casts were long since gone. T hrowing this bait will wear you out! My Dad had taught me to cast out as far as I could, t hen lower the rod tip, lift up and start the retrieve just a s the lure hit the water. T his insured that the bait would stay on the surface where its little propeller could do its job. Two dozen casts and three strikes later, I still hadnt connected to a fish, so I decided to throw somethinga little slower. Fish were busting the Weedwing, but missing it every time. ABass Assassin proved to be the ticket. In the next 30 minutes I caught and released a half dozen bass in the one to two pound range. It was time to move on. As I headed north, passing Horse Island, and coming up on the Fourth Point, I looked for my secret spot from seven years ago. Much had changed. There were numerous cuts and hidden pockets back in the reeds, but nothing that reminded me of the spot I was looking for. Im sure Lake Okeechobee changes every year, creating small pockets, expanding weed lines and increasingt he acres and acres of half submerged vegetation. I didnt really expect to find my spot. The wind was picking up and I found a small inlet and decided to give it a try. The water was deeper than I had expected, between 4 and 5 feet, and by now, the sun was high so I decided to flip. No takers for the first hour and then a good fish picked up my Medlock jig and headed straight towards the boat. It was a good fish, and for some reason my drag was set far too loose as he headed for open water. I tightened the drag and began working the fish back towards the boat when I felt the line sag, just for am oment, and I knew he was going to jump. Jump he did! What a beautiful fish! I f youve never seen a big bass jump, its an experience youll have for a lifetime. The wind had picked up the boat and I was in open water now. The bass came to the surface again and tail walked, putting on a tremendous show. Then, with no warning, my rod straightened out, m y line went limp and he was gone. I caught my first 10-pound bass at Lake Okeechobee in 1989, 23 years ago, just as Id moved to Deerfield Beach. I had spend almost 40 years in Ohio dreaming of the day I could fish a lake like Lake Okeechobee and catch trophy sized bass. I couldnt have been hap pier to move to Florida in 1989. Since then Ive added a number of 10 pounders, a c ouple over 11, and my cu rr ent wall hanger is a 12 pounder caught at Lake Walk-in-Water. As a fisherman, and of course as a fisherman who lost a nice fish, Ive got to believe this one was bigger But then, theyre always bigger when you lose them. If you havent been to Lake Okeechobee in awhile, or maybe youve never been there, take the time and make the trip. Theres a reason why this lake is known as a Big BassD estination. Maybe Ill see you there. D on Norton is a professional t ournament bass fisherman, bass fishing guide, and custom rodb uilder.

Continued from 1B Okee is Big Bass Destination down by Kasey Hawthorne in the first quarter. But the Rattlers quickly responded with a score of t heir own, sending it into halftime with the Eagles down 7-6. The defense came out in the second half with key tackles by Devin Brubaker, Austin Oppold and Christian Ramos, but late in the third quarter the Rattlers scored again. The offense rallied t ogether, but struggled to get any drives going, resulting in their first loss of the season with a final score of 14-6. This brings their record to 3-1 and dropping to second place in the division. Playing the fourth game, and one of the highlights of the day, was the undefeated Junior Varsity averaging 32 points a game. T he JVteam took the field ready for some action after not playing in a game last week. The defensive quickly shut down the Rattlers and in the first offensive drive of the game, running backR afael Smith rushed for 35 yards into the end zone for the first score. During the ensuing kickoff, the ball rolled into the back of the end zone earning a safety for the Eagles to b ring the score to 8-0. The offense drove down the field on their next possession with key yards gained by Akem JnPierre, Jalen Williams and Smith. Quarterback Norris Fish Taylor connected w ith Rodrigo Nolan on a tackle-eligible pass to score a touchdown just before the half, making the score 15-0. During the Rattlers next o ffensive drive they got around the end to score a touchdown to make it a 157 contest. The Eagles quickly responded, though, when Taylor handed off to Williams, who rushed for a 5 0-yard touchdown with DJ Taylor earning the extra point. The JVdefense dominated the field in the second half with three sacks by JnPierre and key tackling by Smith, Williams and Malcolm Jackson not allowing another first down for the Rattlers for the day. I n the last offensive drive Taylor carried the ball 40 yards for the final touchdown with Smith earning t he extra point to bring the final score 28-7. T he win brings the JV r ecord to 4-0 and in a tie for first place in the division. Wrapping up the last game and another highlight of the day, was the undefeated Varsity team. Linemen EJ JnPierre, Anthony Healy, Geraldo Sanchez, Anthony Oppold and Bryan Blanchette dominated the line of scrimmage, plowing the way for this team to score on all five of itspossessions. Quarterback Donte Carpenter was 3-3 passing for 101 yards and two touchdowns. Malik Taylor caught all three passes for 101 yards receiving and two touchdowns. Carpenter also carried the ball five times for 37 yards. Sammy Smith had three carries for 42 yards and a touchdown. Tremaine Hawthorne carried the ball three times for 28 yards and a touchdown and fullback Tyler Edwards had four carries for 24 yards and a touchdown. The defensive stance was impressive, with key tacklesf rom Oppold, Christian Morales, Smith and Taylor which lead to the second win of the day with a final s core of 33-7 bringing their record to 4-0 and first place i n the division. The Lady Eagle cheerl eaders did a great job in cheering the boys on and kept the crowds spirited. The concession stand was a happening place and HYF would like to thank the board members and volunteers that work so hard. They also appreciate greatly the volunteers that assist on the sidelines with the chains.

Continued from 1B LP wins, Panthers stopped 19-14 lead. e let them slide up a little bit on us there in the end, said head coach Stephanie Devlin. It could not have been put any better. The Lady Bulldogs went on seven-point run over the Devils; completely stunning everyone in the gym. Frostproof ended up actually winning a close set 2523. That loss did not sit well with Avon Park and although it was another nailbiting, intense final set, the Red Devils were soon able to close the match 25-23. The one thing that stayed consistent throughout the night for the Lady Red Devils, now 1-0 to start District 10-4Aplay, was their serving. Junior Marina Torres led the night with a total of nine aces on the night followed closely by junior Maria Tataris with five. ere a tough serving team, Devlin said. We have a lot of top spin serves and we have a lot of change ups too. ere a great team, Devlin continued. But we still have to work on our consistency Over in Wauchula, meanwhile, the Lady Blue Streaks continued their nondistrict schedule with a three-set sweep of Hardee. Similar to Avon Parks contest, Sebring saw the margins of victory get tighter as the match went on against an improving Wildcat squad. After a 25-16 win in the opener, it took a little more oomph to secure a 25-19 win in the next set. The real test came as Hardee tried to extend it beyond three, clawing their way all along to keep it close before the Streaks solidified the 25-22 win. This latest victory continues the upward trend for this young Sebring team that had to replace seven graduated players from a year ago. After dropping both matches in their own Preseason Classic, the Lady Streaks topped Frostproof and finished runner up in a very competitive South Fork Tournament in Stuart. Back-to-back wins over Frostproof in a rematch and Tuesdays win at Hardee now has Sebring seemingly on a roll. Though that was to be tested Thursday with Avon Park, a winner over the Streaks in the Classic, in town for an always-entertaining, cross-county battle.

C M Y K You have nightp ain,difficulty with gripping and your nerve con-d uctions confirm that you have carpal tun-n el. What do you do now? You can ask your family doctor to recommend a hand surgeon. You can also get recommendations from yourf riends. You want to make sure that the doctor you choose to t reat your carpal tunnel is board certified in Orthopaedic or Plastic Surgery and,if pos-s ible,has a subspecialty certificate in hand surgery. G enerally you can get this information from the doctors office when you make your appointment. If you are in the moderate c ategory,the carpal tunnel will get worse over the next year, b ut you can pick a convenient time to have it treated. If you are in the severe category,par-t icularly if you are a diabetic, then you want surgery as soon a s is practical. This is because the nerve is showing damage and will not improve withouts urgical intervention. Many patients want the tiny incision surgery (endoscopic s urgery) where a small scope is inserted through one or two t iny incisions in the wrist and hand and the tough roof (retinaculum) over the carpal canal is released. When this surgery option first was popularized,s urgeons thought patients would get back to work faster a nd the pain in the base of the hand (pillar pain patients have would ber educed. Unfortunately,neither of t hese expectations was realized. It took the same amount of t ime to get back to work, except in the very heavy labor category,and the same number o f people got pillar pain. The patients complications were w orse even with the skilled experience of careful surgeons. It also was not recommended in diabetic patients, those with prior wrist fracturesa nd severe carpal tunnel. Surgery is typically done as a n outpatient using a combination of local and IV sedation. This keeps the patient unawareo f the surgery,but has fewer side effects than a general a nesthetic. Most surgeons are using a shorter open incision in the palm. N ew research has shown that splinting for several weeks post op is not necessary f or a good result. The research showed that the less time w earing a splint,the faster the return to full function. The first few days post op may be more comfortable in a splint for some activities. Most peo-p le in the moderate category get back to everything but h eavy lifting and tight gripping within a few days. Patients whose presentings ymptom is severe pain say that pain decreases even i mmediately after surgery because the nerve settles down as soon as the pressure isr eleased. Numbness takes longer to abate. For the severe carpal tunnel, t he nerve may have been damaged and some fibers may n eed to regenerate before the numbness goes away. This is similar to the process of nerveh ealing after a nerve is cut and repaired. There is a two-week lag before the healing starts and the nerve fibers grow at one millimeter a day or onei nch a month. Results are improving in this category since we have begun using some of the same rehabilitation techniques usedw ith cut nerves. If no data is coming in from the nerve to the brain,then the brain redirects those areas to other work. When the nerve heals and data to the brain resumes,w e have to get the brain to quit ignoring the data. The h and therapist uses techniques such as finding marbles in a bowl of sand or dry beansw here you must use touch and not sight. The brain begins l ooking for data and finds the new information. Sensation returns to the hand and buttons are no longer the challenget hey were before surgery. Stay tuned to find out what to do if surgery did not relieve your hand pain. Dr. Diana D.

Can y ou help me? V.D.,Broomfield,Colo. Answer: Sounds like y ouve exhausted your adrenals glands. You can tell if you h ave this particular energy pattern: Difficulty rising you dont really wake up until 10 a.m. You feel better after lunch You have an afternoon l ow between 3-5 p.m. You are pretty good after 6 or 7 p.m. Youre tired by 8-10 p.m., but resist going to bed If you fight it,and stay up,you catch your second wind around 11 p.m.,lastingu ntil 1-2 a.m. If this sounds like you,its probably hypoadrenia,also k nown as adrenal burnout or adrenal insufficiency.Adrenal g lands pump out cortisol hormone to help you deal with stress. If you have one big stressor (such as grief million micro-stressors,theno ver time,your adrenal glands stop producing adequate cortisol hormone. You will drag yourself through each day never knowing what is wrong with you. Physicians who fail to recognize this disorder assume you have depression and pre-s cribe antidepressants or stimulants. Only when a proper diagnosis of adrenal insufficiency is made can you buy natural herbs to supporta drenal gland health,or take a prescription medication called hydrocortisone,which restores natural cortisol. Many people with undiagnosed hypoadrenia,soothet heir hormonal imbalance by binge eating or drinking, a lcoholism or drug addiction. A few other signs of h ypoadrenia include the need to lie down after emotionally s tressful times,muscle weakness,mild depression, fatigue,craving foods high in salt or fat,increased menopausal or PMS symp-t oms,more allergies,lightheadedness upon rising,freq uent sighing,using caffeine or sugar to wake up,low libido and apathy. Some findt hey feel better after spending the night with a friend,or g etting out of the house. As I see it,the biggest problem is that adrenalf atigue causes hypothyroidism,causing a cascade of other terrible symptoms and n o amount of thyroid medication will correct hypothyr oidism,unless you simultaneously nourish your adrenal glands with adaptogenic herbs. Adrenal hormone testing is s imple. I recommend Diagnos-Techs,ZRT Labs or Neuroscience Labs,because those three labs offer saliva testing in a four-pointmanner. This means you provide f our saliva samples,morning, noon,evening and midnight. H erbs and vitamins that support adrenal health include DHEA,schizandra, eleuthero,rhodiola,ashwaghanda,ginseng,turmeric,t heanine,astragalus,beta sitosterol,ginger and B vitam insespecially pantethine. Its a mortgage and a nightmare to take all of thoses o I recommend you buy one formula that can multi-task, m eaning it includes several of those goodies. The effect is synergistic,and the price isn ice. You can find a couple of If you are picky like me, take a physician-formulated p roduct that guarantees therapeutic dosages such as aD renalby RLC Labs (I take it myself); most any practitioner can order this for you, or buy online at naturalhealthyconcepts.com Suzy Cohen is a registered p harmacist and the author of The 24-Hour Pharmacist and Real Solutions.

The man replied,I know t hat,Doc.Thats why I came to see you. The doctor said,Go home,take off your shirt a nd shoes,go out to the north side of your house, and stand in the snow for an hour and a half. But,Doc,cried the man,that will give me pneumonia! The doctor replied, realize that.You see,I know how to cure pneumo-n ia.I just dont know how to cure a cold! F or those of you whom I have not met (and that is j ust about all of you),let me introduce myself. My name is Kevin Patterson. I preach for the Sebring P arkway church of Christ meeting at 3800 Sebring P arkway here in Sebring. My family and I moved here a little over a month ago from Bolivar,Mo., where I preached for thep ast 11 years. My wife, S heri,and I have four children.Our older sons, Michael and John,are grown and live and work in Arizona and Utah.Oury oungest two,Connor (15 and Mary (13are newly e nrolled students atSebring High School and SebringM iddle School and are adjusting to their newl ivesas Blue Streaks. I will be writing an artic le each week in the Friday edition of the News-Sun, and I hope it will be ofs ome help to you. As the doctor above who could only cure pneumonia andc ould not cure the patients cold,let me tell you right a way that I do not boast to have all the answers.I might be able to help ins ome areas,and I might not be able to help in other a reas. However,in the midst of my deficiencies,I do know of one who can provide answers to all your prob-l ems,give you strength when you are weak,and l ove you when no one else will.He is the one about whom I want to tell youe ach week.His name is Jesus Christ. S ometimes,we have a tendency to expect too much from people.We e xpect doctors to have all of the answers,and when they do not,we get upset. We expect teachers to be perfect,so that they will bew orthy of our less-than-perfect children. We expect children to act like adults, and kids expect parents tob e without flaw. Sometimes our expectations go a bit far. Nevertheless,think about the message written by thea postle Paul in Philippians 4:13,I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.What confidence! How amazing itm ust have been for Paul to know that no expectation or obstacle was too great,as long as his Savior was by his side.And,we can have the very same confidencet hat Paul had. All we have to do is follow the instruct ions given to us in the Bible. Then,we will know a strength that will lift us u p and carry us through anything this old world t hrows our way ... and that even includes the common cold! Please join me here each week as we study more ofG ods will for our lives. I also want to extenda pers onal invitation for you tocomestudy and worship with usat the locationd etailed elsewhere in this newspaper.Until next time, t rust in the Lord and lean on Him for strength and understanding!

The meeting involved officials from GreekO rthodox,Roman Catholic,Muslim,Jewish, Hindu and Buddhist com-m unities,and they walked together through Sarajevs streets Tuesday. T heir choice of Sarajevo for the meeting was signifi cant because it was here that the 44-month Bosnian Serb siege took place dur-i ng the 1991-95 Bosnian war,killing more than 1 1,500 civilians. The meeting was the last in a series of similar events organized annually since 1986 by the Catholic layc ommunity of SantEgidio. Religious meeting calls for world peace

REID Associated PressMuslim anger over perceived Western insults to Islam has exploded severalt imes,most recently in Tuesdays attacks against U.S. diplomatic posts in the Middle East in which U.S. ambassador to Libya ChrisS tevens and three other Americans were killed. The violence,fueled mostly by religious zealots, reflects the tension betweenM uslims and the secular West that followed the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. H ere are some of the most serious incidents:Muhammad cartoonsThe September 2005 publ ication by the Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten of cart oons depicting the Prophet Muhammad unleashed a wave of violent protests by Muslims,who believe any image of their religions f ounder is forbidden. Dozens of people were killed in weeks of protests that included violent attacks against Danish missions inS yria,Iran,Afghanistan and Lebanon. At least six people were killed in a June 2008 suicide bombing at the Danish embassy in theP akistani capital,Islamabad. Al-Qaida claimed responsibility,citing anger over the cartoons. The Danish government described theM uslim backlash as the countrys worst international crisis since World War II.Satanic VersesB ritish author Salman Rushdies 1988 novel, Satanic Verses,inspired inp art by the life of Muhammad,won kudos f rom critics in Britain but prompted outrage among many Muslims,who considered it slanderous. Deadly riots against the b ook erupted in Islamabad, Pakistan and Mumbai,India, a nd the book was banned in South Africa,India, P akistan,Bangladesh and several other countries. I rans Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini issued a religious e dict in 1989 calling for Rushdies death,leading the writer to live in hiding for a decade. Although Rushdie was n ever physically harmed,his Japanese translator was stabbed to death in 1991 and his Italian translator was injured in a stabbing that same yearVan Gogh AssassinationD utch filmmaker Theo van Gogh,an outspoken critic of Islam whose film Submissioncriticized the treatment of Muslim women,w as shot dead in November 2 004 as he bicycled in the capital of the Netherlands, A msterdam.

Van Goghs assassination set off a wave of more than 170 small reprisal attacksa gainst mosques and churches over the following weeks, according to a report by the Anne Frank Foundation and the University of Leiden. Burn A Quran DayA 2010 call by Florida preacher Terry Jones to burn Q urans on the ninth anniversary of 9/11 alarmed the U.S. military,which fearedt he move would endanger the lives of American troops f ighting Islamist extremists in Afghanistan and Iraq. Although Jones called off the burning,thousands of Afghans encouraged by the T aliban set fire to tires in the streets of the Afghan capital, Kabul,and other cities and chanted Death to America. Police in a province nearK abul fired shots in the air to disperse a crowd trying to storm the governors residence. Jonescongregation went a head with a Quran burning in March 2011,triggering protests across Afghanistan after video of the ceremony was posted on the Internet.

More Quran burningIn February,U.S. soldiers a t Bagram prison in Afghanistan burned 315 copies of the Qurans and other religious materials that had been taken from B agrams facility library for disposal.

C M Y K By CHRISTY LEMIRE AP Movie CriticGreed is good,until it i snt anymore,is Arbitrage,a guilty-pleasu re thriller for these tough economic times. In directing his first feat ure,writer and documentarian Nicholas Jarecki shows g reat command of tone a balance of sex,danger and manipulation with some i nsiderish business talk and a healthy sprinkling of dark humor to break up the tension. His film is well-cast and strongly acted,andw hile it couldnt be more relevant,it also recalls the decadence of 1980s Wall Street,shot in 35mm as it is, with a synth-heavy scoref rom composer Cliff Martinez (who wrote similar m usic for Drive). Arbitrageis a lurid look a t a lavish lifestyle that allows us to cluck disapprovingly while still vicariously enjoying its luxurious trappings. R ichard Gere stars as Robert Miller,a billionaire hedge-fund magnate who,at the films start,is magnanimously sharing his wisdomi n an interview with none other than CNBCs Maria Bartiromo. As he turns 60, Robert would seem to have it all looks,wealth,a loving family and respect among his peers. And yet he always wants more,and feels emboldened by the different set of rules and morals that seems to apply in his rarefied world. So he borrows$417 million from a fellow tycoon to cover a hole in his portfolio and make his company look as stable as possible as its about to be acquired bya bank. This is otherwise known as fraud. And despite the loyalty and support of his smart,beautiful wife( Susan Sarandon),he has a hot (and hot-headed m istress on the side (former Victorias Secret modelL aetitia Casta) who runs in stylish,hard-partying art circles. (Thats another s throwback:the blasi coke consumption). B oth these schemes explode in his face over the course of a few fateful days. An audit of his firm has raised some red flags,mak-i ng the potential buyer turn reluctant and evasive. This prompts the suspicions of his devoted daughter (Brit Marling,every bit Geres equal),whos also the compans chief financial officer and heir apparent. But more immediately and dramatically,Robert is involved in a deadly accident that puts the police on his tail (Tim Roth plays the lead detective witha wonderfully thick New York accent) and requires him to enlist the help of a kid from Harlem (Nate Parker) whos the son of his late,longtime chauffeur. Thats a lot of plates to keep spinning at once; just the financial storyline alone could have sufficed withoutt he affair messing things up further. Whats surprising a bout Arbitrageis that Jarecki never judges this man for the tricky positionh s gotten himself into,and never tries to steer our feeli ngs toward him,either. Gere is so charming,so irresistible when hes on top of t he world when hes got all those plates humming in unison that he kind of makes you root for his character to get away with it all.H is smooth,placid demeanor is perfect here, which make the few times he does snap seem that much more startling. T he films strong women dont quite get enough to do u ntil the third act,when Sarandon and Marling bothh ave powerful showdowns with Gere. But the entire supporting cast is well-chosen,down to the actors who appear in justa couple of scenes,like Stuart Margolin as Roberts dryly funny lawyer and Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter as the head of theb ank thats acquiring Roberts company. Robert may not learn anything by the end,and teetering on the brink of serious trouble doesnt make him a more decent person; actually,he gets nastier and more demanding as the screws tighten. As Parkers character puts it:ou think money is gonna fix this?Robert doesnt miss a beat in responding:What else is there? www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, September 14, 2012Page 11B FAIRMONT CINEMA; 1.736"; 6"; Black; 9/14/12; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 3 3 2 2 0 0 2 2 D ear Abby: My daughter is annoyed with me because Im not jumping up andd own with joy over my grandsons forthcoming wedding.

Arbitrage a wellacted guilty pleasure Movie Review Arbitrage Rating: R (language, brief violent images and drug use) Running time: 100 minutes Review: (of 4 B y RAPHAEL G. SATTER Associated PressLONDON The earliest movies known to be shot in color have been revived by film archivists,w ho on Wednesday gave an audience at Londons Science Museum ag limpse at cinemas first attempts to show us the world as we see it. T he obscure film segments were long conside red failed prototypes, blurry flickers of color seen by no more than ah andful of people before being consigned to an a rchive. But the National Media Museum in the northern England city of Bradford said digitization had effectively rescuedt he footage,unlocking remarkably modern-looki ng images created more than a century ago. The scenes,screened at t he Science Museum, ranged from roughly 5 to 4 0 seconds and showed a parrot,a London street scene,and three smiling c hildren sitting around a table covered with a burgundy cloth batting at a goldfish bowl with large sunflowers. No one really has seen it until more or less today,said Michael Harvey,the Media Museums curator of cine-m atography. Look at the age of it. Here youve a ctually got color film from the early Edwardianp eriod. He said he hoped the movies would change peoples perceptions of what was possible backt hen.The film is slightly jerky but of decent quality.With the exception of the kidsfrilly turn-of-thecentury clothes and somem ild discoloration,the sun-drenched clip of children playing might have been something shot by a baby boomer in his or her back yard with a 1970s Minolta camera. Experts have dated the movie segments back to 1901 or 1902,when cinema was still in its infancy and inventors on both sides of the Atlantic were racing to produce evermore realistic films. American inventor Thomas Edison led the way with peep-show-like Kinetoscope; the Lumiere brothers had wowed French audiences with moving images projected onto screens in 1895. The next challenge was to shoot a film in color. That was no mean feat. Working in London, inventor-photographer Edward Turner devised a complex,three-color process which would shoot black-and-white negatives through red, green and blue filters alternating in rapid succession. The idea was to project three differently filtered frames at a time on to a screen to create the illusion of a single,colorful movie. In theory,anyway. In practice the timing of the filters and distance from the screen had to be perfectly calibrated or the movie became a horrible mess,according to Bryony Dixon,the curator of silent film at the British Film Institutes National Archive. Museum revives first-ever film shot in color NEW YORK (AP Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is a working on a book about one of the Republican Partys most contentious issues:immigration. Bush has a deal with Threshold Editions,a conservative imprint of Simon & Schuster,for Immigration Wars:Forging An American Solution.Threshold announced Wednesday that the book is scheduled for next spring and will be coauthored by conservative attorney and activist Clint Bolick. Financial terms were not disclosed. Drawing upon history and American ideals,Jeb Bush and Clint Bolick outline a courageous and comprehensive strategy to bridge the partisan divide and set our nations immigration policy on a just and rational course, Threshold said in a statement. The book will present a comprehensive solution based on two core principles: Immigration is vital to Americas future,fueling its growth,vibrancy and creativity; yet any true and enduring solution must adhere to the rule of the law. The 59-year-old ex-governor has been urging his fellow Republicans to take on a more moderate tone on immigration,saying hard-line policies have led to lost elections. Bush himself was elected twice. Books have become a standard way to advance a national candidacy and Bush,the son and brother of former presidents,has been widely discussed as a 2016 GOP contender.
