C M Y K By SAMANTHAGHOLAR s gholar@newssun.comSEBRING Ahandful of witnesses took the stand Friday during the third day of former Avon Park police officer James Parkers murdert rial including two medical doctors and a local detective. Assistant State Attorney Steve Houchin opened the floodgates on the graphic details of the death investigation of 20-month-old Kaedyn Short, which began on March 28, 2009. Short was the daughter of Parkers live-in girlfriend at the time, Jennifer Short.

T he proposed ordinance, referred to as Ord. 12-15, s tirred controversy during the meeting, and it was agreed some changes had to made in i ts language before preceding. At issue is 12-15s proposa l to abolish farm worker housing in low density resid ence zones and only allow them a conditional use in high density residentiala reas, and neighborhood or office commercial zones. C hanges are also proposed for boarding houses, which would only be allowed condit ional use in mixed-use comm ercial zones. B ecause of changes in the L DCs definitions of farm w orker and farm worker h ousing, agricultural workers unrelated to one anotherw ould not be allowed to share a home as a family in a low density zone.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING They were arranaged in a circle alternating elderly and young, ready to play a round of circle soccer. The participants were wheelchair-bound residents at the Kenilworth Care & Rehabition Center and pre-K students from the Busy Kids Creative Learning Center. The object of the game was to kick two balls among each other. The 4and 5-year-old students had never visited before, or played the game. In the beginning many were shy. It didnt take long, however, for everyone to get into the action. The balls rolled and bounced to and fro. Active interaction like this is a regular part of the Kenilworths day, said Luis Rodriguez, director of avtivities. e bring them together regularly. The kids do things with them like arts and crafts and coloring. They come to trick or treat on Halloween. He added that older students often built relationships and listened to the tales the elderly told. Partly because of programs like that, Kenilworth recently received five stars, the federal governments highest rating for skilled nursing facilities. Kenilworth had already been rated five stars by the state.

This entire celebration week is put on solely by our wonderful sponsors, and ifn ot for them, we would not be able to have this celebrat ion at all. The Centennial Celebration Committee is a non-profit 501c4 organization. It is run by a group ofi ncredibly hard-working volunteers, very few dedicated people, and I am honored to have the opportunity to serve with them. A lthough the mayor and city clerk are involved in the planning, this is not run by the city as some may think. That is why our sponsors are so very important for this celebration. We have no other means of funds to celebrate with other than what we receive from you. This is a unique time in Sebring history and I am thrilled to be a part of it, as we all should be. We should all be excited, we should all take part in it. If you are able to sponsor, we would truly appreciate it. Think about it, there are many sponsor opportunities, more than you probably care to hear about, but this is the only time we will celebrate our 100th birthday here in Sebring. We have lined up a fantastic week of events and parties that would make our founder proud. Please cons ider having your name on one of our banners. The banners are in the planning s tages and will go to press soon. If you would like to s ponsor and be on a banner of your choice, we need to know in the next couple days. I am urging our entire c ommunity and all that love Sebring to join together, celebrate together, participate together and make this the best we can. How can you be involved? Visit the newly updated website andl et us know. We would like to thank a nd spotlight our newest sponsor for the Centennial Celebration, Taylor Oil Company. Established in 1969 by Wayne Taylor, ad ecedent of a true Sebring pioneer family that settled in Sebring in 1914. Today the company is owned and operated by Wayne and DotT aylors son, Charlie, and his wife, Holly and they continue to serve the Heartland area with a full-line petroleum distributorship delivering diesel fuel, gasoline and lubricating oils and greases. Taylor Oil Company also owns and operates five Taylor BPFood Marts with four locations in Sebring: 3901 U.S. 27 North, 2912 U.S. 27 South, 3390 S.R. 17 North and 3641 U.S. 27 South; and one location in Avon Park at 3 U.S. 27 North.

Plans for Veterans Day activities already under way By TOM KRISHER APAuto WriterDETROIT Government safety regulators are investigating Fords Crown Victoria police cars due to complaints about defective steering columns. The probe affects about 195,000 cars from the 2005 through 2008 model years. The government has received three complaints that part of the steering column can separate and cause loss of steering control. No crashes or injuries were reported, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in documents posted Saturday on its website. Investigators will determine if the cars have a safety defect and whether a recall is needed. So far the vehicles havent been recalled. Ford spokeswoman Susan Krusel said that the company is aware of the investigation and is cooperating. The investigation only affects police versions of the Crown Victoria, she said. The Crown Victoria had been the police car of choice in the U.S. for 15 years before Ford Motor Co. stopped making it at the end of 2011. The Dearborn, Mich. company controlled 70 percent of the police car market and averaged sales of 50,000 per year. The company stopped production of the Crown Victoria late last year at its St. Thomas assembly plant near London, Ontario. Ford police car steering problem being investigated by Feds

J. C hristopher Stevens, ambassador to Libya, was murdered during an attacko n our consulate in Benghazi. Three others d ied with him. Not only was our consulate in Libya stormed bya n angry mob, protesters also attacked our embassy in Egypt, replacing the A merican flag with a black one praising Allah and M ohammed. Libyans leaders were quick to denounce the attack and deaths. Both President Obama and can-d idate Mitt Romney added their condemnations. The Egyptian Foreign Ministry denounced the attack in that country. What sparked this pair of incidents? Did our govern-m ent issue some antiMiddle East rhetoric? Did i t implement some objectionable policies? Did Mitt Romney say something offensive to Muslims? None of the above. A ccording to news reports, the groups in question are upset because of a movie. I am not kidding. There a re clips of a movie on YouTube that portrays Mohammed as a hypocritical womanizer, among other ugly things. It is against offensive to Muslims to show Mohammed in any way. Insulting and saying ugly things about him that pretty much crosses a line. I watched the clip, which is in English, in question. It was 13 agonizing minutes long. The acting is bad, the direction amateurish, and it is clear that no professional movie maker got a mile near this production. And according to an article on foxnews.com, the actual film, Innocence of Muslims, is two hours long. I cannot possibly imagine sitting through two hours of this muck. If I rated it, it would get zero stars. Negative zero, if at all possible. Come on, I thought. A man got killed over this? Something that, if not for the attacks, might well have sunk into welldeserved obscurity? The filmmaker, a California real estate developer named Sam Bacine, is unrepentant. Aself described Israeli Jew, he claims the movie is political in nature and aims to condemn the religion. I f there were any doubts about his feelings regardi ng Islam, the interview would dispel them. He refers to the religion as a cancer and makes it clear that he will not back down from standing behind his f ilm, though he did go into hiding after the violence s tarted. Ultra-conservative Muslims have shown intolerance in the past when Islam has been criticized.A gain, according to foxnews.com, in 2004 a Dutch filmmaker was killed by a Muslim extremist after he made a movie that was considered insulting to Islam. F reedom of speech? What freedom of speech? B acine was sorry about the ambassadors death, but put the blame on the mob and what he called a no good security system att he embassies. I found an interesting quote in an article about the incidents on cnn.com. Aman by the name ofM ohamed al-Zawahiri, brother of an al Qaeda leader, asked the following: I just want to say, how would the Americans feel if films insulting leading Christian figures like the pope or historical figures like Abraham Lincoln were produced? Let me answer that. First off, such films, at least insulting to Christianity, have been produced in the past. Secondly, how would we feel? We might be mad. We might vent on Twitter or Facebook. We might even picket a theater showing the film. But most if not all of us would not even consider rioting in the destructive manner that happened this week. And we certainly wouldnt kill anyone over it. It remains to be seen how this will play out. I pray that there will be no more violence. This excuse for a movie isnt worth it.

Criticize at your own risk Lauras Look L aura Ware Another step back in timeEditor: Hank said he used his stomach to push the propeller in place. Then he tightened the propeller up. Where Francis No. 2 Mobile Park is today, back in the 1 930s, was a grapefruit g rove. Come on around the old wagon trail. Then there is Francis No. 1. Back in the 1 940s, that was a cow pasture. Mr. Hobert had a little o ne-man dairy in the middle o f that pasture. You come on around a little more, there is Jackson C reek. There wasnt any bridge; you had to drive through the creek. You come o n around about half a mile more, you came out at the northeast corner of a big pond. In the 1950s, Cooper was growing caladium bulbs in that pond. Today, there are houses there. J ames Cooper had a landi ng strip in the northeast corner of that pond. If he would land that cub airplane there today, he would be landing on top of some of the houses on Schlosser Road. Across from Sudan Mission, the S udan Mission bought 40 acres of property. About 1964, that was originally the northwest quarter of the Henry Krause homestead, which he homesteaded in 1911. My dad also homesteaded in 1911. Schlosser property joined Krause property. In 1917, my dad sold 14.5 acres off of our northeast corner. That was then known as the Buel place. Bob Catron had some horses that he kept in pens, next to the old Buel place. Kids from town would come out and ride the horses. In 1990, Sudan Mission also bought the old Buel place. Today, when women do the laundry, they just put it in the washer machine. It washes and rings them. Then they just put them in the dryer and it dries them. When my mom did the laundry, she would pump two buckets of water by hand and carry them about 150 feet. William Schlosser SebringGood and bad convention speakersEditor: I just finished listening to Obamas speech at the Democrat National Convention. I did not listen to any of the speeches from the DNC or the Republican National Convention live, but instead taped them so that I could listen to them at my leisure. F irst I would like to say that I have never seen so biased reporting in my life. It aped each different night on a different station. I did this so that I could get differentv iews from the media. It is my opinion that MSNBC is so biased towardt he left wing liberal cause that their broadcasts are useless to any thinking person. CBS and ABC are not far behind. Also, when will news casters learn that I, and many others, dont watch and listen to these broadcasts to hear the reporters or their biased opinions? I guess there are a lot more idiots in the world than I thought. I must admit that Joe Bidden surprised me. He gave a better speech than anyone else at the DNC, except Michelle Obama and Bill Clinton. Although, I have never liked Bill Clinton, and his facts left a lot to be desired, he gave, by far, the best speech of both conventions. On the RNC side, the governor from New Mexico and Mrs. Romney gave excellent speeches. Also, Marco Rubio did very well. I did not care for Clint Eastwoods speech. I am not sure it can be called a speech, but more of a dissertation. He made some good points and I think it could have been extremely good, but his physical appearance and his demeanor/delivery for the unscripted talk were very poor. The least he could have done was combed his hair. Instead of Making My Day, he looked and sounded as if he were just another washed up actor/director. Paul Ryan, in my opinion, gave the best speech of the RNC. He had the crowd on its feet most of the time. Mitt Romneys speech was very good, but I think Obama delivered better. The difference, that I saw between the Republicans and Democrats, was that the Democrats are better at BS.E ven though they gave slightly more stirring speeches, most of what they said was fabrications and half truths. A n example of this would be when they said that they w ere responsible for saving jobs in the auto industry and the industry itself. I spent a lot of years in the auto industry, starting as aS ervice Parts clerk and working up to a management position in World Wide Purchasing, so I think I know a little about what went on there. The Obama administration gave GM $50 billion. This money only kept them from declaring bankruptcy for a few months. After getting billions in taxpayer money, they went bankrupt anyway. So in reality, the taxpayer money never saved a single job or the company, which, by the way, the taxpayer will see very little of their money back. Also, why was there no mention of the stimulus or the bailouts for any organization other than the auto industry by the Democrats? Could it possibly be because billions of taxpayer money went to companies, such as Solyndra, that went down the tube? If I was the dean of a college, I would give Obama three degrees a BS, MS and a PHD. I am not sure if all of you know what those initials stand for, so I will list them. BS = Bull S**t MS = More S**t and PHD = Piled High and Deep. Mike Bussell Sebring BouquetReaping what we sowEditor: I would like to share with you and your readers an experience I had today. As I was getting out of my drivers car in front of Walmart s tore, I fell on the sidewalk. Something locked in my right knee, causing me to cryo ut in pain. Down I went. Strangely, it did not hurt when I landed on the pavement. I believe the angels of God let me down easy. It was only seconds until a pretty and strong, young African-American lady literally picked me up, standing me on my feet and held me until the driver, Melvin Wills, and a lady who ran to help, got me into the store and seated on a bench. I could not bear weight on my right leg. The pain in my right knee was excruciating. Some time ago, I was seen by an orthopedic surgeon who declined to operate on my knee because of my age. Today, the experience was much worse. I would like to thank all those saints who appeared to be right where the Lord placed. The lady who helped with getting me into the store asked for my grocery list. She did all my grocery shopping, doing it just as I would have chosen. Her name was Peggy. In the meantime, Mr. Wills picked up medications that were ready at the pharmacy and a good supply of water. When we returned to Fair Haven Village, we were met at the door with a wheelchair. My neighbor near my apartment quickly brought her walker. Her name is Sue. Sometimes we may ask, Where are the Christians today? as we remember the good old days. They are with us, ready to pitch in whenever God gives the signal. God bless everyone of these good and caring people. As we sow, so shall we reap. Una V. McLaughlin Sebring This has become an issue because New York City has banned the sale of big sodas and sugary drinks at restau-r ants, concession stands and other eateries. T he Highlands County Board of Commissioners has already acted for our owng ood by banning smoking outdoors on county property. W ith that do-gooder background, we worry this nobig-sugar-drink jihad could find a welcome here. We agree that public health is a social concern. Weu nderstand that chronic illness is expensive, not just for t hose afflicted, but for businesses and taxpayers too. We admit people would probablyb e better off if they consumed less sugar. B ut where did elected officials get the idea it is their responsibility to make us make healthy choices, and why do they think they have the right to tell us what to do? Then there are the inconsistencies. The New York law does not apply to bottled soda sold in convenience or grocery stores, no matter the size of the container. If the g oal is to make people healthier, we doubt not drinking in restaurants will make much of a difference, especially because the guzzlers can go home and chug-a-lug q uarts of cola all night. W hats next? Banning ice c ream? Outlawing white bread? Arresting anyone who refuses to eat their vegetables? Will we have to start paying fines, or serve time if wes erve something deemed unhealthy? Will there one day be a B roccoli Police? We can imagine a future prison conversation: What are you in for? I was caught taking the l ettuce off my sandwich in f ront of the kids and charged w ith failure to chew and child endangerment. It would be funny if werent so ridiculous. Put that soda down, youre under arrest Were pretty sure making people eat and behave healthily is not one of governments core functions.

He said the passing of a generation is sadly dimin-s hing the chapters ranks. Im out to recruit as many as I can, he said. Im trying to get the word out. A rbelo explained that the Purple Heart chapter is different from the other 28m ilitary chapters in the area. A ll veterans may join the Veterns of Foreign Wars or the American Legion, Arbelo said. Only someone awarded the Purple Heartm ay join Chapter 601. ou can belong to more t han one organization, Arbelo said. Chapters compliment each other. H e added his group works to make membership f inancially feasible. Unlike the mainstrem chapters, which typically have a $150 f ee for a lifetime membership or charge $50 a year the Purple Heart asks for a $50 lifetime membership or $10 a year. T he first Saturday of every month, members get together for lunch at Charlies Restaurant on U.S. 27. We talk about practically anything, Arbelo said, i ncluding current issues or important updated information. W ives are welcome. Is nice to have them there A rbelo said. The wives sit in one group and the guys sit together The chapter has an outreach program with theJ unior Reserve Officer Training Corp at five s chools. We try to keep kids on the right track Arbelo said. I t also raised funds for the new veterans clinic b uilding and successfully completed a drive to rename U.S. 27 Purple H eart Highway from Miami to the Georgia border. They placed a memorial marker on VeteransBeach as well. Arbelo urges Purple H eart recipients to call him for information, hopefully to join. His telephone number is 465-7074. If you dont have time to c all, he adds, simply stop by Charlies Restautant at 1 2 p.m. Oct. 6. Looking for a few more heroes W illiam Bennett, vicepresident of Management Experts Inc., speaking on behalf of himself and some of his clients, warned the coun-c il that the proposed zoning changes leave the city open for possible discrimination lawsuits. That is because the new o rdinance would push migrant farm workers outside city limits. In an interview, he said the proposed policy amounted to alienation of a segment oft he population. Its just wrong. H e was particularly offended, he said, when city attorney Gerald Buhr impliedm igrant workers were a blight on the city by compari ng them to washing machines in front yards. He warned the new policy could put the city back on CNN (as it was in 2006 whena proposed law would have fined anyone doing business w ith illegal immigrants). The city already has adequate housing codes in place,B ennett said, to deal with neglected or overcrowded p roperty. The core issue is that code enforcement should be more proactive, he said. J ust as important, Bennett said the loss of migrant workers would hurt the citys e conomy. Which is why local growe rs, harvesters and property owners are upset with 12-15, Bennett told the council. They are concerned they may not be able to use housingt hey have already prepared for their workers, thereby losing revenue, or even find adequate housing at all. The workers will actually pay a higher level of rent than if a typical family rented the house, Bennett said, adding that property ownersa nd corporations will maintain their properties in order to qualify for the federal program called H2A. H2Aprovides farm worke rs with a visa to work legally in this country. Among other oversight, housing is closely regulated, down to the size of the win-d ows, number of beds in a room and the number of people sharing a dwelling. T he regulations protect the city, Bennett said. In addition, by pushing m igrant labor outside the city, he estimated Avon Park w ould lose tax revenue, and its merchants millions annually in local sales, based ont he population during the picking season and a worke rs average income of $400 a week. Bennett said studies show individuals typically spent 40 percent of every paychecks hopping locally. That amounts to an avera ge of $6,200 spent in town, per worker, per year. He could think of six busin esses, he added, catering to Mexican workers that would p robably be forced to shut down. Restaurants would be affected too. W hile Bennett addressed the possible practical repercussions, Ludivina Martinez spoke to the human side of living in Avon Park as am igrant worker. At times she fought tears as she explained the prejudice, hardships and frustrations farm workers share. S he was 16 years old when she started to pick tobacco, s he said. That was 26 years ago. She now suffers from years of exposure to pesticides. I n the country legally, Martinez said she settled in Avon Park. It feels like home to her family. Her sons get excited when they get onU .S. 27 headed south after weeks of picking out of state, s he said. With the proposed re-zoning, however, we dont feel accepted in our own coun-t ry, Martinez said. (The ordinance intended to be discriminatory to farm workers, Buhr said.

Parker, 36, is now being tried for first-degree murder and aggravatedc hild abuse. On the night of the incident, Parker was looking after Short and the two older children. The defendant described the toddler as not acting right when he calledt he childs mother to inform her of Kaedyns condition. According to Parkers deposition taken the morning after the incident, Kaedyn was a clumsy kid ash e described. Parker stated that Kaedyn would constantly trip over things and fall down multiple timest hroughout the day. Sometimes she would just fall over nothing, Parker stated toH ighlands County Sheriffs Office Lt. Tyrone Tyson during his first o fficial interrogation. Short was taken to Highlands Regional Medical Center and wasq uickly flown to All Children Hospital in St. Petersburg due to m ultiple skull fractures and brain injuries. One of Fridays three witnesses was pathologist Dr. Hector Monforte, one of the first physicians to examine the damage Shortr eceived. I examined the brain tissue on t he 30th. I had 70 grams of brain tissue, which is about 10 percent of the brain weight, about a 4-by-3-i nch piece, Monforte began. Kaedyn Shorts brain was not a n ormal brain. It has extensive hemorrhage. There was blood all around the specimen I examined. Recent h emorrhage inside and outside the brain. Monforte continued with the explanation of the examination, stating that Shorts brain showed nou nderlying causes for the hemorrhage, such as disease. Houchin began questioning the a ctions that could have lead up to such a severe injuries. Doctor, did you find anything in your examination to suggest that this was not a recent injury?H ouchin asked. No, I didnt, Monforte replied. Public defense team Blair Allen a nd Howardene Garrett cross-examined briefly following Monfortes testimony. T he defense team questioned Dr. Monfortes level of expertise r egarding the dating of injuries. Reading from a previous interview with Monforte, Garrett insisted thatt he doctor was not able to tell when the injuries could have been sust ained. Monforte replied stating that with the examination of iron and rust levels in the blood, he could tell that the injury was not an old one. Monforte stated that had it been a n older injury much more iron, rust, and other healing tissues w ould be present in the specimen he examined. Pediatric radiologist Ronald G lass was Houchins second witness Friday. A t the time of Shorts X-ray and CATscan at Highlands Regional Medical Center, Glass was working f or a company in Chicago that evaluated scans from all over the country in a central location. Glass explained how the scans that took place at HRMC could bea lmost instantly seen at his company, Virtual Radiologic, through an ultra high-speed Internet connec-t ion. Glass transmitted his findings of Shorts X-ray back to HRMC, which were documented by the emergency room doctor. ith reference of images of the h ead of Kaedyn Short, did you find any evidence of trauma? asked Houchin. Yes, said Glass. Explanations of soft tissue swelling anda bleed in the brain led Glass to state t hat Shorts injuries and trauma were very serious. Glass w ent on to say that a patient could die from such injuries. Doctor, in regard to the fractures in the skull, was there more than one? Houchin asked. It was a comminuted fracture. In other words there were multiplep ieces of the fracture. It was a multiple fragment fracture, Glass said. G lass stated that the fractures all appeared to have occurred around the same time due to the manner oft he swelling. Glass also stated that the fractures were all acute fract ures, meaning the injuries were from a one-time occurrence, not multiple or repeated stress of the b one. In your opinion, are these the type of fracture that a small child will get if they simply fall on the floor? Houchin asked. No, Glass replied. What about fall and hit their head on a laptop computer? No. What about falling off a bunk bed? And why not? asked Houchin. Skull fractures are rare. Children play and fall all of the time. Its very rare that you see frac-t ures, Glass stated. Fridays third witness was Tyson, a detective in the sheriffsC riminal Investigations Unit in the homicide division at the time of S horts death. Three exhibits, two audio and one video, were presented to the jury,w hich is made up of three men and 11 women. The first audio was an u nofficial recording of Tysons discussion with Parker during the early hours of March 29, 2009. During the recording, Parker spoke of his relationship withJ ennifer Short, his future plans as well as issues with Kaedyn. T he second exhibit was an visual re-enactment of what Parker described as the events that lead upt o Kaedyns injuries. Throughout the recording, Parker s tated that Kaedyn fell down numerous times after being woken up to have her diaper changed. It was after midnight when I actually went in to change her Parker stated. Parker then re-enacted the diaper change and Kaedyns falls, in whichh e stated he never went over to a ctually help her up. The final time Kaedyn fell in the hallway of the home, Parker described the toddlers creaming as she lay on her side on the floor. According to the re-enactment, Parker walked out of the kitchen where he was discarding the soiledd iaper and over to Kaedyn. I told her get up, youre okay,, Parker said in the video. P arker then said he picked her up, when she began to gasp for air andh old her breath. Parker went into the rest room to throw water on her face. After a minute or so, Parkers tated Kaedyn took a huge gasp and just zoned out. The video then depicted Parker sitting down in the living room chair with Kaedyn as he tried to get her to react. I smacked her cheeks a little bit and kept yelling Kaedyn, Kaedyn,K aedynbut she wouldnt do anything but open her eyes a little and close them, Parker said. It wast hen that Parker called Short and a dvised her to come home to check on the toddler. Tyson continued to question P arker in the third piece of evidence, the formal interrogation. During the interrogation, Parker described Kaedyn Short as a walk-i ng bruise. Parker also spoke of a discussion he and Short had the night of thei ncident about hiring a sitter to look after Kaedyn while Short worked overnight. According to Parker, he stated t hat Kaedyn hadnt been acting right leading up to the incident on March 29. Parker also described the toddler as a little bit slow and c lumsy. The trial will continue this week. Houchin is likely to bring at least one other witness to the stand dur-i ng the trial. Continued from page 1A Parker jury hears medical testimony, interrogation tapes K aedyn In your opinion, are these the type of fracture that a small child will get if they simply fall on the floor? Houchin asked. No, Glass replied. What about fall and hit their head on a lap top computer? No. What about falling off a bunk bed? No. And why not? asked H ouchin. Skull fractures are rare.

C M Y K LIVING B SE CTION News-Sun Sunday, September 16, 2012 MADAM PRESIDENTMadam President. And why not? Women make up almost 51 percent of the U.S. population. But the country has never had a female president or vice president. Six women currently hold cabinet or cabinet-level offices. Remember: Until the suffrage amendment was added to the U.S. Constitution in 1920, women were denied the right to vote in national elections.ROAD TO WHITE HOUSEWomen currently in the political stream are better positioned to run for president. Consider:Governors:Four of the last five presidents were governors. There currently are six female governors.Veeps: Four of the last eight presidents were vice presidents. No woman has held that title.Congress: Five of the last nine presidents also had congressional experience. Today, 17 percent of senators and 16.8 percent of House members are women.SOME HISTORY1872: Victoria Woodhull, a stockbroker and publisher, becomes the first woman to run for president as the candidate of the Equal Rights Party. Ulysses S. Grant won. She said then: What may appear absurd today will assume a serious aspect tomorrow. I am content to wait until my claim for recognition as a candidate shall receive the calm consideration of the press and the public.1920: The 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is ratified, giving women the right to vote.1964: Margaret Chase Smith, a Republican senator from Maine, runs for the Republican presidential nomination in 1964 and loses to Arizona Sen. Barry Goldwater.1972: Shirley Chisholm, a Democratic U.S. House member from New York, becomes the first black woman to seek the presidency. She loses the nomination to Sen. George McGovern of South Dakota.1984: Geraldine Ferraro, a U.S. House member from New York, becomes the D emocratic vice presidential running mate to Walter Mondale. She is the first woman to run on a major partys national ticket. They lose to Ronald Reagan and George H .W. Bush.2004: Carol Moseley Braun, a former Democratic U.S. senator from Illinois, ends her bid for the nomination after failing to win a primary.2008: Hillary Rodham Clinton, t hen a U.S. senator from New York, ran a close, but ultimately unsuccessful race a gainst Barack Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination. Clinton, now the secretary of state, is the wife of former President Bill Clinton, and the only first lady of the United States ever elected to public office.2008: Sarah Palin was governor of Alaska when she was tapped as the running mate for Republican nominee John McCain. She is the second woman vice-presidential nominee from a major U.S. party and the first Republican woman nominee for the vicepresidency.2012: Michele Bachmann, congresswoman from Minnesota, was a candidate for the Republican nomination for president early in the 2012 race. She withdrew from the race after a disappointing showing in the Iowa caucuses.ON FILMA study of the top-100 grossing movies of 2011 found 93 percent of all political and government leaders were played by men, according to the Center for the Study of Women in Television and Film.

They were a young, attractive family, and the TVera was just starting, noted Dianne Bystrom of the Carrie Chapman Catt Center for Women and Politics at Iowa State University. From that point on, the role of spouses on the campaign trail and in the White House just evolved.ROLE TODAYAspouse can help a candidate reach more voters and raise campaign dollars. The candidates spouse becomes a surrogate for the candidate when a candidate cant be in two places at the same time, Bystrom explained. Consider:HILLARYRODHAM CLINTON: Now secretary of state, and formerly a Democratic senator from New York, she helped her husband, Bill Clinton, run for president in 1992 and 1996. She reflected on the campaign in her autobiography, Living History: The 13month presidential campaign was a revelation. ... We were unprepared for the hardball politics and relentless scrutiny that comes with a run for the presidency Hillary put that campaign experience to use in 2008, as she ran, unsuccessfully, for the Democratic presidential nomination. MICHELLE OBAMA: The current first lady has been referred to as the closer for her ability to seal the deal with voters. Her emotional speech during this years Democratic National Convention drew tears and cheers. The first lady (is ting a home run, but probably a grand slam, said CNN host Wolf Blitzer.ANN ROMNEY: Wife of Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney also is on the campaign trail stumping for her husband this year.

C M Y K D earAbby: Im a 41y ear-old divorced mother of two and grandmother of two. I own my own business, God blessed me with my first home two years ago, and Im happier than I have been in years. Im writing because I have been seeing a man for about six months whom I met at church. We have attended the same church for about two years. Gavin has never been married, has no children and doesnt want any. We have a great time together. We act like teenagers in love. I know hes not seeing anyone else because we spend too much time together. Gavin calls me four to five times a day, brings me lunch at work and takes me out to eat all the time. He constantly buys me presents and helps my daughter out with money w hen things get tight. He has e ven helped me financially a f ew times and refuses to let m e pay him back. I am falling in love with him. My problem? Every time I try to let Gavin know how I feel, he tells me not to let that happen. Its not what he wants, and he wants me to stop. (Yeah, right! Like I can turn my feelings on and off.) Anyway, he says we are nota couple, and I am free to do whatever I want to do. Am I asking too much to want us to take this relationship to a new level? He shows all the signs of being in love with me by the way he treats me. His mixed signals are confusing. Am I really that naive? Unsure in Greensboro, N.C. DearUnsure: You are not naive. Hope springs eternal in the breast, and you are only human. When a man tells you he wants you to be free and to do whatever you want to do, what he really means is he wants to be free to do whatever he wants to do. As much as Gavin cares for you, its not enough for him to make a lifetime commitment. So, if being married is your goal, recognize that this honest, but reluctant Prince Charming is not for you. DearAbby: My 24-yearold daughter, Lisa, informed me a year ago that she was engaged. Shes a college graduate living in another state and still looking for a job. Her fiance is a young Marine who plans to make it a career. Lisa was visiting this w eekend and gave us the w edding date, which is in three months. She already has her invitations and bridesmaids picked out, etc. As she was leaving, she broke down and said she had something to tell me. They were married six months ago. She still wants to continue with her wedding plans, and have me walk her down the aisle. My wife and I are extremely hurt and angry for having been lied to all this time. My question is, shouldI go along with this charade? Any other wisdom to impart? Lisas Disappointed Dad DearDad: At least your daughter told you in advance. I have heard from parents who didnt learn the truth until months or years after the wedding. Feeling as you do, calmly convey your thoughts to your daughter as you have done so clearly in your letter. As to any other wisdom I would offer: As a lowranking member of the military, Lisas husband isnt going to make a lot of money until he climbs the promotional ladder. Their money would be better invested in other ways than the wedding of her dreams. They can reaffirm their vows later, in a way that is open, honest and less expensive. To My Jewish Readers: At sundown, Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, starts. This is the beginning of our time of solemn introspection. Leshana tova tikatevu may each of us be inscribed i n the Book of Life and enjoy a good year.

C M Y K September is a busy month as far as people concerned with the environment go. Starting about mid-monthu ntil the end of September, there is some sort of environmental day celebrated within our nation and globally. Since the s, environm ental issues have become an important issue. As a result, educational facilities have included environmental science in curriculums; them edia has played a huge role in getting word out to the public regarding environmen-t al issues. These factors have resulted in getting the attention of the people, which hasi nspired many groups and activists to make strides to p rotect our planet. In 1987, the Montreal Protocol on Substances thatD eplete the Ozone Layer was signed. Representatives from 2 4 countries met in Montreal and committed to rid the world of chemicals and other substances that destroy the ozone layer. As a result,e very Sept. 16, the International Day for the P reservation of the Ozone Layer is celebrated. It is designed to be the UnitedN ationsInternational Day to educate on topics related to t he ozone layer, climate change and ozone depletion. Just one day later, Clean u p the World weekend begins. Sept. 17-19 brings communities together to fix up, clean up and conserve their environment. This spe-c ial weekend is celebrated the third weekend in September annually. It was established in 1993 by Ian Kiernan and Kim McKayw ho were founders of the Clean up Australia organizat ion. They approached the United Nations EnvironmentP rogram with the idea of taking the concept globally and were successful. Today approximately 35 million volunteers work toc lean up the planet during this two-day event. During about the same time every year is World Water Monitoring Day onS ept. 18. This event is designed to reach the public and increase awareness about protecting water resources. Test kits allow anyone who wishes to be involved to sample local water bodies and share the results with participating communities around the world t hrough their webs ite. The goal of the program ist o engage and educ ate citizens in the protection of the worldsw ater resources. Z ero Emissions Day begins on Sept. 21. This day is basically a moratorium onf ossil fuels for 24 hours. The rules are simple: Shut down e verything that you dont absolutely need that is powered by fossil fuels for one d ay. The four steps are: 1. Dont use or burn oil or gas or coal. 2. Minimize (or eliminate your use of electricity gener-a ted by fossil fuels. 3. Dont put anyone in harms way: All essential and emergency services operate normally. 4 Do your best, have fun, enjoy the day. C ar Free Day is held on Sept. 22 and is designed toe ncourage folks with vehicles to give them up for a day. In many cities, it promotes the use of mass transit, cycling and walking. The idea reallyg ot started during the 1973 oil crisis and by 1995 became a national campaign. Ecological Debt Day, also dubbed Earth Overshoot Dayi s recognized on Sept. 23. This day is in recognition of the date that the total resources consumed by humanity will exceed the capacity for the earth to generate those resources that year. The theory here is that the earths natural resources are outweighed by the earths a bility to regenerate its resources. The date that this d ay is recognized is the date in which the following calculation is met: (world bioca-p acity/world ecological footprint) x 365 = Ecological D ebt Day. Each year the date is reached earlier in the year making humanity fall into ecological debt. Finally on the last Sunday i n September, World Rivers Day is celebrated. This day is d efined as a global celebration of the worlds waterways. The goal is to promotec itizen involvement in the health of rivers. It highlights t he value of rivers and increased public awareness as well as improved stewardship o f rivers globally. This September and every month there are plenty of reasons to celebrate our environment. Whether it is rivers, theo zone layer, fossil fuels or simply cleaning up an area, every person can take the initiative to help the planet.

The earliest lunch b oxes were circa 1900 metal pails or re-used biscuit, tobacco, or candy tins.F rom the turn of the century metal carry-alls that prot ected immigrant factory workerslunches to the post-war lunch boxes that accompanied the children of GIs to new suburban ele-m entary schools in the late 1940s and 1950s, the lunch b ox represents the American experience. Catering to its school age a udience, the first modern, popular lunchboxes feat ured cartoon, television and movie characters. Hopalong Cassidy was the f irst image on a lunchbox when Nashvilles Aladdin Company adhered a Hopalong decal to a traditional metal lunch box in1 950. Hopalong was the earliest image on a lunchbox, but in 1953, Roy Rogers became the first full printed lithographic imageo n a lunchbox. Metal lithography, a r edundant stamp printing process, was used for mar-k eting images that appeared on canned food products and on metal picnic baskets that featured images of plaid textiles or woven bas-k et reed. The metal lithographic production process used for lunchboxes is similar to the early 1960s reproduced images ofC ampbells Soup Cans by Andy Warhol. Disney dudesThe mid-1950s, Disney character lunch box appealed to the oldest and youngest of lunchbox aficionados parents who grew up with Steamboat Willie cartoons and theirb aby boom children who dreamed of visiting C alifornias newest attraction, Disneyland. At $2.69, the Disney S chool Bus domed lunchbox was a pricey item in U niversals 1956 product line. The yellow domeshaped, metal lithographed W alt Disney School Bus lunchbox depicted a bus filled with Disney icons including Jiminy Cricket, Pinocchio, Dumbo theE lephant, Minnie Mouse, Pluto and, of course, Mickey. Yet, this lunchbox sells today on the vintage marketa nd online for nearly $500. Of course, it commands its h ighest price on the resale market during back-to-s chool week. In the 1960s, sassy vinylover-cardboard Barbie lunchboxes enticed little girls in colors ranging froml ight pink to hot pink. By the 1970s, school kids knew the answer to the question: Scooby Doo, Where are You? as theu ltra-popular lunchbox was a winner for its fun form that mimicked the cartoons highly recognizable Mystery Machine Volkswagen microbus. By the late 1980s, the lunchbox had evolved from a 1950s square metal carryall hosting a PB&J sandwich to a molded plastic Cabbage Patch Kids con-t ainer with a highly nutritious Reagan-era lunch: a c an of New Coke and Pop Rocks. Lunchbox updateTodays lunchboxes a ddress todays concerns. Popular characters are still the rage like Bob the B uilder or Dora the Explorer.The Built NY l unchbag is made of neoprene rubber and has insolated storage sections. It boasts a built-in placemat for those less-than-sanitaryl unch tables or for eating on the run or in the car, both indicative of our 21st Century culture. Wondering which lunchbox I carried as a kid? I carried a few different onesb ut I remember my favorite one was a Snoopy and W oodstock domed lunchbox in bright yellow plastic with a red handle. Which lunchbox did you carry? Ph.D. antiques appraiser, a uthor, award-winning TV personality, and TV talk show host, Dr. Lori presents antique appraisal events nationwide.D r.

Special to the News-SunORLANDO It was 70 years ago, during World War II, that the Navy officially welcomed women into the service. This September, their service will be celebrated with a preview of the film Homefront Heroines: the WAVES of World War II at the WAVES National Convention at the Lake Buena Vista Resort in Orlando. The WAVES, or Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service, were the first women to enlist in the Navy at the same rank and pay scale as the men. The initial group of women began training in September of 1952, and eventually more than 80,000 would serve in stations across the continental United States as well as in Alaska and Hawaii. Homefront Heroines is a film more than five years in the making. Director Kathleen M. Ryan and producer David Staton traveled across the country interviewing a dozen women, and spent hours in archives uncovering never-beforebroadcast film footage and photographs to help tell the womens stories. I want to make sure their legacy wast lost, Ryan said, noting that she found books and films about World War II didnt focus on the WAVES. Homefront Heroines is produced by TaylorCatProductions, and it has a distribution agreement with the Colorado Public Television. The film preview is scheduled for 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 21. Homefront Heroines tells story of World War II WAVES

Phone 453-6052.PLACESTOWORSHIP By BARBARAORTUTAY A PTechnology WriterN EWYORK Nintendo has a knack for changing the course of video games, appealing to the masses from kids to grandparents even ifi ts technology isnt the most advanced. The creator of Mario Bros. and Donkey Kong said Thursday that it willl aunch its first high-definition gaming console on Nov. 18 in the U.S., later that month in Europe and on Dec. 8 in Japan. Its the first major game c onsole to launch in years. But Nintendo is merely catchi ng up on HD with Sony Corp. and Microsoft Corp., which began selling their ownH D consoles six and seven years ago, respectively. The q uestion is whether a touchscreen tablet controller, coupled with TV-watching features, will be enough to surpass them. T he original Wii console revolutionized gaming and s urpassed its rivals not because it had more power or better graphics, but because it gave people a new way to play. Its motion-sensing con-t roller wasnt the most advanced, but it got people off the couch, swinging virtual tennis rackets, bowling and flailing around in livingr ooms around the world. But over the years the novelty faded even as the Xbox 360 and the PlayStation 3 have managed to keep loyal,h ardcore gamers enthused with massive shooters and multiplayer features. Whether the Wii U can bring people back will depend on Nintendos abilityt o lure people in with classic games from Mario to Call o f Duty, entertainment features that go beyond gaming and a price that doesnt breakt he bank. Nintendo first announced p lans for the Wii U last year, but it hadnt disclosed the price or availability date until Thursday. The Wii U will start at $ 300 for a basic model, which is just $50 more than what the W ii initially sold for. For $350, gamers can buy a deluxe version that is black i nstead of white. The deluxe model will also have a charging stand for its controller, 32g igabytes of memory instead of 8 and Nintendo Land, a s morgasbord of 12 popular Nintendo games. Nintendo Co. has been trying to drum up excitement for the Wii U. What sets it apartf rom other consoles is the tablet-like Wii U GamePad. T his controller allows for asymmetrical gameplay, so two or more people can play t he same game but have different experiences. Players can also turn off the TVe ntirely and play on the GamePad, watching the game o n the tablets screen and using the controllers on the sides. In the New Super Mario Bros. U, for example, play-e rs holding the old Wii controllers guide Mario, Luigi a nd other characters. The person with the GamePad can help them along by using a stylus on the tablets touch screen to stun enemies or cre-a te stepping stones for the characters. The new Mario game, which will be available when the Wii U launches, will alsoo ffer new challenges for advanced Mario players, such as trying to complete a level without touching the ground. The Wii U GamePad will b e included with each console. But the packages wont include the old-school Wii controllers, though they can be used to play the games. Thats because Nintendo sayst here are enough of them out there, considering that nearly 9 7 million Wiis have been sold worldwide compared with nearly 70 million Xbox3 60s and about 64 million PlayStation 3s. S terne Agee analyst Arvind Bhatia said that the Wii Us technology doesnt make it a real, true next generation gaming console. He said itr eally matches the Xbox 360. But what has always h elped Nintendo is the games they can put on it that nobody can, he added. They dont necessarily need everything to be cutting-edge. Mario, Pikmin and other classic games have long been Nintendos main draw. Bhatia said sales expectations for the Wii U are fairlyl ow, and Nintendo will be considered successful if the number of Wii Us it sell amounts to half the Wiis it sold. T hat said, GameStop President Tony Bartel expects it to be a really strong seller this holiday season. Although a lot of gaming these days takes place on mobiled evices, Bartel said true immersive gaming is still o wned by consoles. Nintendo also announced new entertainment featuresf or the console. Called Nintendo TVii, the s ervice collects all the ways users have to watch movies, TVshows and sports. So if you like the TVshow Modern Family, for exam-p le, it will pull in the shows episodes from every available s ource, whether thats on Hulu, Netflix or traditional cable TV. MCT Satoru Iwata, global president of Nintendo, speaks during the unveiling of the company's new Wii U game console at E3 Expo in June of 2011. GAMING Nintendos Wii U to launch Nov. 18, start at $300

(AP Asmall building tucked in the hills of Northern California shines with an unusual green glow fromh undreds of glass tubes jutting out from one side toward nearby bushes. Inside, the dark wooden shed contains an undulatingw all filled with the translucent rods, each like a 3-footlong drinking straw, sucking in a cool breeze and the rushing sounds from a nearby waterfall. T he work of experimental architecture is called the SOL G rotto and Republicans are making fun of it as a symbol of a $528 million federalb oondoggle, calling it the most expensive art project e ver built. The newly opened installation owes its 1,368 distinctive glass rods, and its name, to Solyndra the faileds olar company that received a hefty sum in federal loans b efore going bankrupt and becoming a favorite target for critics of President BarackO bamas energy policy. When the Fremont-based s olar company went under, it left behind millions of 39inch glass tubes custom-m ade for its signature solar panels. Husband and wife design p artners Ronald Rael and Virginia San Fratello got the r ods from a storage company that ended up stuck with thousands of pallets of them and created the installation in the Botanical Garden at theU niversity of California, Berkeley. e thought they glowed so beautifully, we had to use them in the grotto, said San Fratello. These materials, instead o f being disposed of, are being reused and recycled in a fantastic way, she added. Like Solyndra, the installation has become an object of ridicule for critics, especially with the presidential electiono nly months away. The Republican-controlled H ouse Energy and Commerce Committee put out a news release titled, UCB erkeleys Solyndra Artwork Would Shatter Record for W orlds Most Expensive Piece. Three years ago, the federa l government made a $528 million loan guarantee to Solyndra to promote renewa ble energy and create green jobs. I n the spring of 2010, President Obama visited the companys newly built Silicon Valley campus, praising Solyndra for leading thew ay toward a brighter and more prosperous future. Then 15 months later, it filed for bankruptcy protection. What we have here is a very expensive monument to f ailure, said Jeff Wald, a Republican Party official in A lameda County, standing outside the shuttered Solyndra building. s disheartening to see the government wasting som uch money, he said. Attorneys for Solyndra did n ot respond to a request for comment Thursday. Obama administration offic ials say the decision to give Solyndra a loan guarantee w as not political. They say cheap imports from China, the collapse of the Europeanm arket for solar panels and other economic changes doomed the California firm. L ast week, a federal bankruptcy judge cleared the way f or creditors to begin voting on a proposed reorganization plan for Solyndra. The government is expected to recover little, if any, of its invest-m ent. But while the company failed to draw enough interest to stay open, the grotto so far has been a success, attracting visitors. MCT Rachel Dent and son, Sam Cope, 10, of Berkeley, California, look at a sculpture created by Ronald Rael, UC Berkeley assistant professor of architecture, and Virginia San Fratello from glass tubes from former solar power comp any Solyndra. Calif. art work emerges from Solyndras bankruptcy


C M Y K BUSINESS C SE CTION News-Sun Sunday, September 16, 2012 WELLS MOTOR COMPANY; 11.25"; 10.5"; Black plus three; process, used cars; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 3 3 3 3 3 3 8 8 By CHRISTOPHER S. R UGABER APEconomics WriterW ASHINGTON More expensive gas drove up consumer prices in August by the most in three years. But outside energy, inflation was tame. T he Labor Department said Friday that consumer p rices rose a seasonally adjusted 0.6 percent last month, the first increases ince March. Higher gas prices accounted for 80 perc ent of the increase. Food prices rose 0.2 percent. Excluding the volatile food and energy categories, core prices edged up 0.1 percentf or the second straight month. Rents, medical care a nd new cars got more expensive, while clothing, furniture and airline fares felli n price. Mild inflation leaves cons umers with more money to spend, which can boost economic growth. Lower infla-t ion will allow the Federal Reserve to stick with programs announced Thursday a imed at lifting the economy. If the Fed were worried that p rices are rising too fast, it might raise interest rates. In the past 12 months, prices have increased 1.7 percent. Thats down from ap eak of 3.9 percent in September 2011 and below the Feds inflation target of 2 percent. Core consumer prices rose 1.9 percent in the past 12 months, the smallest annuali ncrease in a year. Augusts prices rose largely because gas prices have j umped in recent weeks. The average price for a gallon of g as nationwide was $3.87 on Friday, up 16 cents in the past month. The modest increase in food prices indicates thed rought in the Midwest is not yet pushing up grocery prices. Some economists say that will happen in the comings months. On Thursday, the Federal Reserve said it would pur-c hase $40 billion of mortgage-backed securities a month until the economy and t he job market steadily improve. Fed officials also s aid they would keep shortterm interest rates low even after the economy strengthens. Hiring has weakened r ecently after a strong start to the year. Employers added only 96,000 jobs in August, below the 141,000 added in July and far below the average gains of 226,000 in the first quarter. T he unemployment rate fell to 8.1 percent from 8.3 percent, but only because the n umber of people in the work force shrank. F or now, the economy isnt growing fast enough to spur greater job gains. The economy expanded at a 1.7 percent annual pace in theA pril-June quarter. Thas down from 2 percent in the first quarter and 4.1 percent in the final three months of last year. Higher gas costs drive up US consumer prices in August CLASSIFIED PAGE2 C M CT Gas prices, which averaged $3.87 per gallon nationwide on Friday, accounted for 80 percent of the rise in consumer prices in August.

C M Y K a s home prices have plummeted and loan interest rates are at historic lows, you can resist the temptation to get in over your head and first boneu p on the many one-time and recurring costs involved in owning your own home. Agood place to start is Know Before You Owe, thef inancial education initiative launched last year by the Consumer FinancialP rotection Bureau (CFPB ensure that people receive concise, easy-to-understandi nformation regarding mortgages, credit cards and stud ent loans, among other major financial decisions (www.consumerfinance.gov). A fter soliciting input from thousands of consumers, l enders, mortgage brokers and consumer advocates, the CFPB recently developed new prototypes for the federal disclosure forms borrow-e rs receive after applying for a mortgage and before closi ng on the loan. When making what is likely the biggest purchase oft heir life, consumers should be looking at paperwork that c learly lays out the terms of the deal, CFPB director Richard Cordray said. T he proposed forms combine several different but overlapping documents now required by various federal agencies. B ut they will simplify the language and format and make it easier to compare different mortgages and more easily understand loan terms,i ncluding interest rates, monthly payment amounts, c losing costs and how the loan amount might change over time (e.g., with ana djustable-rate loan). They also highlight features borr owers may want to avoid such as prepayment penalties and negative amortization. In the meantime, if youre considering buying a home,r eview the proposed forms to get an idea of which costs y ou should be watching out for. And, even if you're already comparing loans ori n escrow, ask your lender to show you where the various c osts highlighted in the new forms are located in your current disclosure documents it might help avoid costly last-minute surprises. Here are some factors future homebuyers should keep in mind: Start planning now. It could take years to save enough for a down payment and closing costs. Dont forget ongoing e xpenses like a monthly mortgage payment, mortgage i nsurance, homeowners insurance, property taxes, furnishings, maintenance andr epairs. People with poor credit r atings usually either dont qualify for loans or pay much higher interest rates. Work on repairing your credit at the same time youl aunch a savings plan. If your down payment i snt at least 20 percent, youll probably be required to buy Private MortgageI nsurance (PMI tects the lender if you d efault.

B y STEVE PEOPLES Associated PressB OSTON Mitt Romney is promising to reduce taxes on middleincome Americans. But how does he define middle-income? The Republican presidential nominee defined it Friday as income of $200,000 to $250,000 a year and less. T he definition of middle income or the middle class is politically chargeda s Romney and President Barack Obama fight to win over working-class voters.R omney would be among the wealthiest presidents, if e lected, and Democrats have repeatedly painted him as out of touch with averagep eople. Obama also has set his d efinition for middle class as families with income of up to $250,000 a year. Romneys comments came an interview broadcastF riday on ABCs Good Morning America. No one can say my plan is going to raise taxes on m iddle-income people, because principle number o ne is (to down on middle-income taxpayers, Romney told hostG eorge Stephanopoulos. Is $100,000 middle i ncome? Stephanopoulos asked. No, middle income is $200,000 to $250,000 and less, Romney responded. H is campaign later clarified that Romney was refere ncing household income, not individual income. T he Census Bureau reported this week that the m edian household income the midpoint for the nation is just over$ 50,000. Obama wants to extend B ush-era tax cuts for those making less than $250,000, while Romney wants to extend the tax cuts for everyone. R omney has not explained how he would k eep his plan from growing the nations deficit. Romney: Middle-income is $200K to $250K and less M CT Mitt Romney campaigns in Virginia on Thursday.


C M Y K B y JAMIE WILLIAMS Special to the News-SunWAUCHULA S tatistically speaking, on offense, the Hardee Wildcats outgained the Sebring Blue Streaks 185 to 7 5. On defense, they created t hree turnovers to Sebrings o ne. Yet, it was the Streaks who won on the scoreboard, 1412, for their first win of the year and to prevent Hardee from making a clean sweep on Highlands County teams. The offense got first downs when we needed then, Sebring head coach LaVaar Scott said. The defense made stops when we needed and the special teams played special. It was the special teams that proved to be the difference, and their impact was made in the very beginning of the game when Duran Rudolph returned the opening kickoff 90 yards to put the Blue Streaks up 7-0. Hardee was forced to punt after three plays from their own 25 and saw it blocked, giving Sebring good field possession on the Wildcat 44. Sebring drove the ball inside the 20 before attempting a 35-yard field goal. The attempt, however, was no good and Hardee got the ball back on their own 20. Two plays later, Aaron Barker was able to get around the left edge and ran down the left sideline for a 79-yard touchdown to bring the Cats to within one 7-6. Hardee created the first turnover of the game when they intercepted a pass and returned it to Sebrings 14yard line. Apersonal foul call on the Streaks added to the prime field position and put the ball on the 7. The defense held for three downs, but Hardee was able to punch the ball over on fourth-and-one to take their first lead of the game 12-7, heading into the second quarter. Hardee controlled the 12 minutes, including a 12play drive that started from their own 13-yard line. Highlighting the drive was a fake punt on fourth and 2 on their own 47 that gained 9 yards for the first down on Sebring 44. The drive stalled though, when the Wildcats committed six penalties over the next 10 plays and were forced to punt. Sebring committed their second turnover of the game when they fumbled and Hardee recovered on the 20 with less than a minute left in the half. Sebring was able to stop Hardee at the 6-yard line Special to the News-SunSARASOTA For the second week in a row, lightning struck down on the Lake Placid Green Dragons. Last week, it was the literal form that ended their loss to Moore Haven with half a game still left to play. This week, it was the lightning of the Cardinal Mooney passing attack that befell the boys in green. Cougar quarterback Reese Vita threw for 262 yards and four touchdowns to move his team to 3-0 on the season with a 41-7 win Friday night at Austin Smithers Stadium. Vita was sharp in leading Mooney down the field on its opening possession, but the Dragon defense stiffened and forced a 37-yard field goal attempt. Kicker Blake Youngs boot was true and the early lead stood at 3-0. And the Cougar defense proved itsworth in stopping Lake Placids drive and taking over at the 30 after a short punt. Then, on the first play of the ensuing possession, Vita lofted one up for a diving Elijah Toussaint to snare in the end zone for a 10-0 Mooney lead. The Dragon defense, along Of all the noteworthy dates that define the history of bass fishing, four should be of special interest to trophy anglers. June 2, 1931 George Perry Caught the world record largemouth bass, 22.4 pounds from Montgomery Lake in Georgia. June 23, 1973 California angler David Zimmerlee caught and released a 20.15 pound bass from Lake Miramar. March 12, 1991 Robert J. Crupi caught a bass weighing 22.01 pounds from Californias Castiac Lake. July 14, 2009 Manabu Kurita caught a 22.5 pound largemouth bass from Lake Biwa, Japan. George Perrys record stood alone for 70 years, almost being overtaken by Crupis bass in 1991, and finally sharing the record books with Kurita for the World Record fish. In order to qualify as a new world record, Kuritas bass had to be 2 ounces heavier than Perrys. Since it was not, they will share the world record. In the world of whitetail deer hunting, biologists and sportsman alike have realized three important factors basically control the size of a mature bucks antlers. These factors are age, food and genetics, without any of which a buck has very little chance of becoming the hightined, 21-inch wide 10 pointer every hunter dreams of shooting. These same three elements age, food, and genetics also form the basis of trophy realization in largemouth bass. Abass, like a deer, must live long enough, have enough to eat throughout his lifetime, and also have the proper genetic makeup to grow to between 10 and 20 pounds. Anumber of other factors also play into this equation. The overall environmental quality of a lake, which affects forage fish, plus weather conditions and angling pressure.

B y DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comMULBERRY The theme of the night seemed to be Giving Back in Mulberrys 9-6 win over Avon Park Friday. Which would be a noble gesture, were it not a matter of eacht eam repeatedly giving t he ball back to the other. Astill-not-clicking Red Devil offense would punt the ball to the Panthers nine times on the night, while Mulberry offered up four. And it might have been m ore for the home squad, had it not been for three firstquarter fumbles that gave Avon Park a trio of extra possessions. The offense, while not able to do anything with the first two, could not have been set up any better by the defense on the third one. Acrushing tackle and strip by thec ombo of Dylan B rown and Jarviel Hart got the ball back at the Mulberry 11 late in the first quarter. Quarterback Ryan Dick then ran for four yards to the seven before finding Darius Williams in the corner of the e nd zone for a touchdown pass, and a 6-0 lead, with 1:29 left in the period. The Devil defense bent on the next Panther possession, but didnt break, getting the ball back to the offense after s topping a fourth-and-long to end a 13-play drive. But it was another threeand-out for Avon Park and, under a heavy rush, the ensuing punt was shanked, culminating in a net distance of six yards and giving Mulberry the ball at the Devil 40. Six plays later, the Panthers pushed it across on a Cordario Brown two-yard run to even things up with 3 :51 left in the half.

C M Y K By BRITTANY WHITTINGTON News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Theres no s uch thing as redemption, were the first words that came from Sebring head coach Venessa Sinness. The Blue Streaks and Red Devils met up Thursday night for their second county rival match of the season after Avon Park had gotten the better of them in the Sebring Preseason Classic. Akill by junior Bella Caraballo started off the opening set allowing Sebring to get their first side out. Another kill by sophomore Caylin Webb extended the lead 6-4. The Devils retaliated with a Maria Tataris kill switching momentum to their side bringing the score to 12-8 with the Streaks still ahead. Sophomore Otishia Smith had a solo block adding another point to the Red Devils score. Senior Paige Lewis and Caraballo joined the block party with an assisted block to change the momentum. The Lady Streaks added another attendant to their block party with a solo block by Webb raising the score 14-9. Senior Allie Mann saw this as an advantage and ran w ith it. She was able to rack up s ix points for the Streaks with her serves. T he Devils were tired of the run and broke it with Smith kill switching the sides at 21-12. Asolo block by senior Kayla Wilson allowed Avon Park to hold off just a little bit longer with a score of 24-14. But Sebring quickly finished the set with a 25-14 win The second set would not be as easy for the Streaks as they may have thought after the opener. It started off similar with Sebring in the lead, but Avon Park quickly kicked it into gear. The Lady Streaks were not able to pull far away from the Lady Devils. Akill by Smith put the Devils in the lead 14-12. Four consecutive kills by the Streaks gained momentum and confidence in the young Sebring squad. Until the end, it was a back and forth grudge match making the set end by the win by two rule finishing off at 26-24. Another Caraballo kill started off the third set witha side out. And again the battle would be joined with ebbs and flows going back an d forth for both teams in this backyard brawl. But whether Sinness b elieves in redemption or not, her team certainly was in a little payback mode as they held on for a 25-23 win to complete the sweep.D ragons winLake Placid, meanwhile, continued itswinning ways with a three-set sweep of visiting Mulberry on Thursday. Coming off a five-set w in at DeSoto Tuesday, withn early half the team shelved due illness, the Lady Dragons were on the mend. ere not as sick as we w ere, but were not fully healthy yet, head coach Linette Wells said. It wast all that pretty, but a wins a win. Avon Park was slated to face Lake Wales at home Monday before traveling to DeSoto Tuesday in a district match. For their sake, Sebrin g will be looking for a little payback again Tuesday as they host the other squad that beat them in the Preseason Classic Lake Placid. News-Sun Sports Editor Dan Hoehne contributed to this story. Ailing Dragons sweep Mulberry By STEVEN WINE Associated PressMIAMI Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman says his weary pitching shoulder feels better after a break and he expects to be back in action in a few days. Chapman played long toss before Fridays game at Miami and threw 40 pitches. I felt really good, the hard-throwing left-hander said through a translator. I feel a lot better The Reds decided to give him five to seven days off after his velocity and control were subpar Monday against Pittsburgh. He said he doesnt expect to pitch this weekend in Miami. few more days, Ill be back, he said. Manager Dusty Baker said Chapman is on schedule to return soon. Chapman, whose fastball often reaches 100 mph, said his shoulder began to feel tired last week. He said he has gone through the same thing two or three times before, most recently last year. Chapman moved into the closers role this season for the first time in his career. He has converted 35 of 40 saves with a 1.60 ERAin a career-high 64 appearances, and he made the All-Star team. With the NLCentral-leading Reds closing in on a playoff berth, Chapman said the timing of his break isnt ideal. I dont feel good about it, he said. I wish this would have happened early in the season, because this is when were in the final stretch. But the goal, he said, is to be at his best in October. w ww.newssun.comNews-SunSunday, September 16, 2012Page 3D DR.

FTA September activities of bass, Micropterus salmoides floridanus, better known as the Florida-Strain Largemouth Bass, is known to be genetically superior where growth is concerned. These bass have been transplanted all over the world and fisheries in Texas, as well as California and many other states have shared in the world of big bass. E ven Kuritas world record 22.5 largemouth was a Florida strain bass. Many studies have been done on largemouth bass and the aging process. Most biologists would a gree, 10 years appears to be the normal life span. However, biologists discovered that bass 10 pounds and over, in Florida, averaged about 9 1/2 years, depending on where they were caught. In Lake Okeechobee, a 10pounder averaged 8.4 years compared to 10.6 years from Lakes Orange and Lochloosa, and 11.3 years from the smaller lakes in the Ocala National F orest. In Texas the average age of a 13-pound bass is 9-years old, and the bass caught by David Zimmerlee in California, 20.15 pounds, is believed to have been 12to 14-years old. So, what does all this mean to fishermen in Florida? T rophy bass could be anywhere! Istokpoga. Okeechobee, Lake June, or maybe some of the smaller lakes like Lotela, Glenada, Dinner or Trout. Fishing pressure on these lakes may reduce the odds, but what about those small lakes and ponds at the golf course or hidden back in the orange groves? Biologists have long specul ated that a world record bass is a live and well and growing larger everyday in our Florida lakes, and possibly in many oft he Texas and California lakes and even Japan. Big bass actually do change their habitats, their eating routines, and their social lifestyles. A primary reason anglers fail to catch a lot of big bass is their failure to recognize and understand these changes and then adapt to them. There is definitely an attitude change, notes Bill Murphy, one of Californias best-known big bass fishermen. For the northern strain of largemouth, I believe this change occurs at around four pounds, while for the Florida strain it takes place when the fish reach about eight pounds in size, although it can and frequently does take place earlier. T he problem is, most large bass die of natural causes, or they never live long enough to see that 10-pound mark. U nlike their smaller brothers and sisters, large bass will o ften seek the deepest water, t he heaviest cover, and although yet to be proven, its at least thought that they may possess enough memory not to be caught a second and third time. In addition to being wary of man-made baits, and being outof-reach to most anglers, large bass eat differently from small bass. Abass of 10 pounds or more may only eat once a week, c ompared to their smaller cousins, but it will be a large m eal. The odds of a bass making it t o 10 pounds are ridiculously low. Perhaps not as low as your odds of hitting the lottery, but just staying alive that first year is a major feat for most bass. Even as they age and grow l arger, there are plenty of predators more than happy to make a meal of them. Its no wonder theyre scarce.

ROTMAN, DARRIN; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; sept ads; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 2 2 9 9 3 3 3 3 Associated PressJACKSONVILLE The Jacksonville Jaguars wont have any blackouts this season. They dont even want to use the term, either. And if things go as planned under new owner Shad Khan, empty seats at EverBank Field also will be a thing of the past. Team president Mark L amping said Friday the Jaguars will have every home game on local television in 2012, and in an effort to remove blackouts from the conversation, they wont even ask the NFLfor extensions. e dont sell tickets to get our game on TV Lamping said. We sell tickets to generate revenue and have a stabile franchise. And almost just as important is to have the stadium full so that we have a homefield advantage. Whether the game is on TVor not, thats just sort of a by-product. Thats not our goal. Jacksonville also has several new initiatives to beef up ticket sales. Fans are allowed to bring food into the stadium toa void high costs at concession stands. Babies sitting on a parents lap get free admission. And unused seats are being sold for as low as $20 each. Fans can buy a certificate for up to four tickets the day before the game and then redeem it for unused tickets, some in prime locations, an hour before kickoff. But the new policy, tabbed Coin-Toss Tickets, does not guarantee location o r whether tickets will be singles, paired or nearby each other. Nonetheless, the Jaguars believe they are taking steps to eliminate those empty pockets of seats that get a lot of national attention and create speculation that the franchise is destined to relocate. e wanted to eliminate those policies that were barriers to fans attending games, Lamping said. The outside perception is that no one goes to the games here, that games are alwaysb lacked out here. So now there wont be that talk. All the games will be on television. The Jaguars havent blacked out a home game since 2009. Nonetheless, the smallmarket franchise has strug-g led to fill its cavernous stadium, which was built to house the annual FloridaGeorgia college football game. Jacksonville covered nearly 10,000 seats in 2005 to reduce stadium capacity and make it easier to avoid blackouts. Now, the Jaguars dont even want that to be an issue. I know our teams bett er days are ahead of us, not behind us, Lamping said. I believe this organizat ions better days are ahead of us. Lamping is hopeful th at some or all of the tarpse ventually will be removed. T he NFLnow allows teams to dictate stadium size on a game-by-game basis, and the Jaguars expect to have the tarps off for at least one game this s eason, probably against the New York Jets in December. That game will mark the latest return for Jacksonville native and former Florida star Tim Tebow. Theres nothing w e would love more this year than to peel off some of the tarps for a game, Lamping said. Psychologically, th at would be a wonderful thing for this community Jaguars wont have any home blackouts in 2012 with a pair of penalties, had the Cougars moving backw ard on their next possession. But a middle screen to D emardre Patterson was completed at the 18 and continued over another 82 yards, bringing the home crowd to itsfeet and upping the lead to 17-0. Vita would later connect with Blair Perry on a fouryard score to make it a 24-0 game, but Lake Placid would soon flash a little bit of its own lightning. On the kickoff after the latest score, senior Ricky Miller darted and dashed his way through and around the Cougar special teams for an 85-yard score, making it a 24-7 margin. But lightning soon struck again as on Lake Placids ensuing kick, Sean Morris brought it back 89 yards for a quick answer to get the lead back to 31-7 by the half. The second half saw a more defensive battle, with both teams digging in and hitting hard and working through a scoreless third period. Though there was a scary moment in the fourth when P atterson ran into a crushing Dragon tackle after a sixyard gain and remained motionless on the field. The junior was attended to by paramedics but maintained movement in his extremities and waved to a relieved and applauding crowd as he was carted off the field with what is believed to be a concussion. Vita would connect for one more touchdown, this to senior Ryan Branch, and Young would complete the scoring with a late field goal to provide for the final margin. This was definitely my best game of the season, and maybe my career, said Vita. Again, its all about my teammates. They really make t he difference. Things dont get any easier for the Dragons who travel to Dunbar in Ft. Myers Friday for the second of three straight away games. Continued from 1D LP continues road trip at Dunbar and Hardee attempted a field goal in the waning seconds. The field goal was good from 22 yards, but offsetting penalties took the points off the board and Hardee attempted to kick the field goal again from the same location. This time, Shawn Munson shot cleanly through the outside edge and blocked the attempt. Arthur Williams then scooped it up and scampered 85 yards for the touchdown as time expired in the first half. Sebring made the extra point to complete the 10point swing and go into the half leading 14-12. The second half became a defensive battle as neither offense was able to mount a ny significant drive. Hardee had four drives stymied by Broen Jones, who had four second-half sacks. His second sack came late in the third quarter after Hardee recovered a fumble on Sebrings 33-yard line. With fourth-and-6 on Sebrings 29, Jones sacked the quarterback for a six-yard loss to give Sebring the ball back on downs. The third ended with Sebring holding on to their lead at 14-12. With a little over two minutes left in the game, Hardee got the ball back one final time on their 44. Jones got his fourth sack of the half to create a longyardage situation. Williams intercepted the n ext pass attempt with a 1:19 left in the game and from there, AJ Gayle ran for two first downs as the Streaks ran o ut the clock for the 14-12 victory. e are going to shore that up (the bad snaps and fumbles during the game), said Scott. We have a lot of freshman and sophomores and things are going to happen. We just have to overcome the mistakes and minimize them. e got a victory, continued Scott. I am happy for them. Sebring will be home this Friday as the face off against their first district opponent of the year, Lake Gibson.

Sebring breaks into win column, head into District schedule By TOM CANAVAN Associated PressEASTRUTHERFORD, N.J. Headed into the season, the New York Giants believed their secondary wasa team strengths. Headed into Sundays game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-0 so sure anymore. Dallas quarterback Tony Romo shredded the secondary for 307 yards and three touchdowns in the Cowboys 24-17 win to open the season for New York. He completed 22 of 29 passes, and finished with a quarterback rating of 129.5. Theres no doubt, the secondary was short-handed with cornerbacks Terrell Thomas (knee season and Prince Amukamara out with a high ankle sprain. It only got worse in the second half when Michael Coe tweaked a hamstring and had to sit, forcing Justin Tryon to play cornerback. Still, some things were unacceptable. Cornerback Corey Webster, the supposed star of the back four, was beaten fora 40-yard score on a double move by Kevin Ogletree, resulting in the Cowboys second touchdown. Safety Antrel Rolle and Tryon seemed to bump into each other instead of hitting Miles Austin on a 34-yard lollipop scoring pass by Romo on a first-and-30, fourth-quarter play. And if that wasnt bad enough, the secondary played the Cowboyslittle slant patterns like they had never seen the play before. Safety Kenny Phillips, though, didnt seem concerned on Friday about the secondary. Like I say, after our first game, you can say: Oh my God! The secondary looked so bad.When you watch it on film you see why this happened and why that play was given up, he said. Its no big deal. Its nothing to worry about. The defensive line, which created havoc on opposing quarterbacks late last season in leading the Giants to their second Super Bowl in five seasons, let Romo off easy. The Dallas quarterback was sacked only twice and hit just four times. Giants secondary needs to improve vs. Tampa Bay Classified Ads 385-6155 NEWS-SUN

Our starting center is injured and we had to put a freshman in, which is asking a lot, head coach Lee Brown said afterward. Asking a lot, especially considering the vast majority of the Avon Park offense is from the shotgun. And while the job was done well, for the most part, there were enough shorthop and worm-burnings naps that threw off the timi ng of an offense still looking for itsrhythm. The defense, meanwhile, was doing itspart, and proved opportunistic when Zack Farr picked off a pass late in the half. But while Dick did conn ect with Steven Roberts on a 20-yard pass a few plays later, the game would go to halftime still tied 6-6. The defense would force a three-and-out to start the third, and the offense showed signs of life. Dick ran twice for 16 yards and found Roberts again for a gain of 10, but back-to-back sacks forced another punt. T he teams then traded possessions before Mulberry got it at itsown 41 late in the third and drove to the Devil 32. A pass was knocked down at the line before a four-yard gain got it to the 28. W ith the seconds ticking away and a slight breeze at t heir back, the Panther kicking team hurried to attempt a 46-yarder and Noe Guillen got it off just as the buzzer sounded. The kick had the distance and split the uprights to put Mulberry up 9-6 entering the final 12 minutes. In the fourth, the giving back theme really kicked in as each team wound up punting it back to the other on four straight possessions. But then, starting from their own 20 and time starting to tick away, the Devilss tarted to move. Dick ran for nine yards, then four. He found Damon B raswell for a 19-yard gain and ran for another 12, which would have brought i t to the Panther 38. But a holding penalty was c alled which, from the spot of the foul, brought it all the w ay back to the Avon Park 33. Ashort gain on a pass to Roberts was followed by an incompletion and on thirdand-27, a little razzle-dazzle was called upon. What looked like a possible reverse actually turned into a downfield pass. But Mulberry didnt bite and the pass was picked off to all but put the clamps on the final. Just a couple of little things and that was the game, Brown said. Were real young, with two fresh-m an tailbacks, and its going to take time. But t heyre getting that experience. And the defense has r eally been playing well. Were taking steps in the r ight direction. Which the team will look to continue at home Friday when they face LaBelle.
