They both went to investigate and found the kitchen full of black s moke. Adam Ramsey had been frying chicken wings earlier in the evening.I t appeared he had mistakenly turned the burner on high,instead of off as h e intended. The pot of cooking oil was the source of the thick smoke. Reacting reflexively,Ramsey,who w as only dressed in boxer shorts, grabbed the handle of the pot and went to throw it outside. He slippedo n the floor,however,and fell. The oil spilled all over him and poofed, a s his wife said,into flames. Even without clothes to catch fire, Ramsey sustained secondand thirddegree burns. Then the house itself burst into flames,burning to theg round.

By SAMANTHA GHOLAR s gholar@newssun.comSEBRING The wafting sweet aroma reaches well beyond the front entrance of the Palms of Sebring this weekend with the annual Apple Harvest Festival. Thursday marked the publics first day to experience the annual event that is now in its 16th year. The festival is a tribute to the autumn season and all the things that remind you of the upcoming holidays. The festival was created by Lester Kesselring,who had a h uge love of fall. Kesselring spent many years bringing all things fall to Central Florida through his beloved Apple Festival. After Kesselrings untimely passing last November,the Palms family decided to continue the festival in his honor. Palms wellness director Adele Dornheim took the reins this year for the first time in the festivals history. It has been a great big challenge,Dornheim said. I got a little training under him (Kesselring) last year but Ive never done this event by myself. I had some help with a co-coordinator this year.

C M Y K Its been two years since Amy Loones husband,LT (SEALy,29, was killed in Afghanistan. Before I could blink,life as I knew it had vanished, Amy recently wrote in the San Diego Union-Tribune. It would have been unders tandable if this grieving Afghanistan war widow,31, c hose to spend the second anniversary of her husbandsd eath in seclusion. Instead, the fallen Navy SEALs wife woke up at sunrise in San Diego and spent Sept. 21 making others smile. A my and a group of friends brought food to a homeless shelter,paid parking meters,bought coffee for strangers at Starbucks ande ven gave a hungry family a grocery store gift card. They also brought treats to firefighters and police officers to thank them for their service. After each act was performed,the recipient was given a red,white and blue card decorated with gold stars. This random act of kindness has been performed in loving memory of LT (SEAL Brendan J. Looney,KIA Afghanistan Sept. 21,2010, it read. In her moving Sept. 20 column,Amy challenged Americans to perform 10 acts of kindness before the end of 2012 in honor of our nations fallen heroes and their families. By uniting during such divided times,we can show the world that America is still the worlds brightest light, she wrote. I decided to join Amy in performing acts of kindness on Friday,Sept. 21,albeit from thousands of miles away in Atlanta. M y first visit was to a nearby barber shop. As a young female stylist started cutting my hair,she asked if I had the day off,promptingm e to explain that the offices of the Travis Manion Foundation,where Amy and I both work,were closed to honor a fallen Navy SEAL. U pon checking out,I gave the stylist a large tip before handing her a memorial card similar to the one Amy was distributing in San Diego. She paused and looked at Brendans picture. This gives me chills,she said. Next,I drove to a military recruiting station. Since Brendan was a SEAL,I visited the Navy first,and told a female sailor that I wanted to bring lunch to her office. Unfortunately,she had already eaten,but after thanking me for the offer,emphasized how much acts of kindness mean to those serving in uniform. A woman came up to me in a parking lot the other day and hugged me,the sailor said. Those little things make a big difference. Luckily,the Marines hadt eaten,and allowed me to bring them a large order of buffalo wings. After handing lunch and Brendans memorial card to the sergeant in charge,the Marine asked me t o deliver a message to the Looney family. e may not have known this young man,he said. But he was our brother. W hile ordering lunch for the Marines,I asked the manager of the Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant if I could leave a pint of Guinness for Brendan. He promptly placed the full glass at the center of the bar,along with the memorial card,which included Amys request for acts of kindness. When I returned eight hours later,Brendans beer was sitting beneath two American flags bought by the manager.The bartender said countless patrons had taken pictures of the noteworthy Guinness,resulting in many acts of kindness being performed right there in the restaurant. One patron,for example, bought ice cream for every child in the establishment at dinnertime. I had a tough week,the bartender said. But things like this remind you there are still good people in the world. Amy Loones heart will always ache for her husband, h is parents,his siblings,and the families of every fallen warrior. But one thing she wont do is quit. Hopefully,I will honor h im by carrying on his thoughtful mission,Amy wrote. I love you,Brendan. America loves you,Amy.

By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Members of The School Board of Highlands County approved a onetime $1,000 bonus for teachers at the top of the salary schedule,and step and a one-time bonus of $500 for teachers levels 2 through 5. Teachers at levels 6 through 11 will receive a step but no bonus. Teachers did not receive step increases or bonuses last year. In a second contract,the school board agreed to give district support personnel a one-time bonus. It is calculated using contract work hours and contract days. The board also approved non-instructional, non-bargaining and mid-management personnel at the top of the salary schedule receiving the same one time bonus as the support personnel. Those at lower levels will move up a step. The board also approved advancing administrators up a step,with those at the top of the salary schedule receiving a one-time bonus of 1 percent of their salary. These contracts mean every employee in the school district will receive a pay raise or a bonus. The change will be reflected in the Oct. 15 paycheck. SBHC votes to reward employees

C M Y K People believe in astrology because they want to be ablet o make sense of the world ... Grocery stores and farmers markets are filled with people buying organic produce because they think its health-i er for themselves and their families. Thats right. In the grand s cheme of hooey and hogwash,the purported health benefits of organic fruits andv egetables over the cheaper conventional versions of the s ame produce rank right alongside crop circles,spoonbending and ab-belts on thes cam meter. The nutritional benefits of organic produce a re nothing more than a superstition. The organic industrys lobbying mouthpiece,the Organic Consumers Association,has spouted alls orts of claims about the benefits of organic produce,such as On average,organic is 25 percent more nutritious int erms of vitamins and minerals than products derived from industrial agriculture. But those figures come from a report filled withu nsubstantiated data that was paid for by the organic food companies. Needless to say,itw as in their best interest to stretch (or invent) the truth. When actual scientists perf ormed actual scientific research about the nutritional b enefits of organic produce, they discovered absolutely no benefit in consuming organicp roduce. The Stanford University s tudy,Are Organic Foods Safer or Healthier Than Conventional Alternatives?:A Systematic Review,found that fruits and vegetablesl abeled organic were,on average,no more nutritious than their conventional counterparts,which tend to be far lesse xpensive. Nor were they any less likely to be contaminated by dangerous bacteria like E. coli,according to a New York Times recap of the study. Conventional fruits and vegetables did have more pesticide residue,but the levels were almost always under the allowed safety limits,the sci-e ntists said. The Environmental Protection Agency sets the limits at lev-e ls that it says do not harm humans,the report found. ... Theres nothing wrong with w anting to make sure that you and your family are eating f ood thats as healthy as possible. In fact,its admirable. But theres no need to wastem oney on organic produce when conventional fruits and v egetables are just as nutritious at a fraction of the cost. In other words,dont be a sucker. An editorial from the Chattanooga (Tenn.) Free Press. ANOTHERVIEWPOINTTODAYSLETTERS 2227 U.S. 27 South Sebring, FL 33870 8 63-385-6155 NEWSROOMR OMONA WASHINGTONPublisher/Executive Editor Ext. 515editor@newssun.com S COTT DRESSELEditor E xt. 516scott.dressel@newssun.comD AN HOEHNESports Editor E xt. 528daniel.hoehne@newssun.com A DVERTISINGV ICKIE JONESExt. 518vickie.jones@newssun.comM ITCH COLLINSE xt. 507mcollins@newssun.com BUSINESS OFFICEJANET EMERSONE xt. 596legals@newssun.com EDITORIAL& OPINION Page 4ANews-SunFriday, September 29, 2012www.newssun.com Too many taxesE ditor: When I look at prosperous cities or countries such as Hong Kong way out t here in the Far East,or Singapore, with their bustling everyday market of exchange of goods and riches untold,I think of our own Highlands County. I ask myself,why arent we far richert han those cities,a nation such as ours with such abundance of everything, with such an excellence of civil liberties unparalleled in world history? ... The answer lies,in my humble judgm ent,in government oppression. Taxes are indeed needed if we are to survive a s a community:The garbage needs to be collected; sewage water needs recy-c ling; our police and firemen need our support no questions asked. This is our duty. But let us also not forget the principle taxation is built on,just to keep allt hings in perspective:axation is the confiscation of our money under threat of violence.One example of this violence,which has been given to the State by God,but which can also bea bused by the State,is property tax. No other tax weakens our ability in a free market much like property tax:It bleeds us to economic death; it vanquishes all motivation to build our homes,to better them,to do business with them,since at any time,if we run out of money,it is taken away from under us and we are thrown out into the street to fend for ourselves ... Another oppressive hand of the State is the unbelievable inventory of State and Federal regulations against our freedoms in the market. This oppressive situation stifles and smothers our system of capital and resourcefulness,to no end. But we could end this by putting an end to property tax,sales tax, gas tax and so many other taxes and instituting income tax,as is the rule with nations. We must put an end to the public school system and the millions it costs to underwrite it:Im all for compassion and all children must have a right to an education,but,why must I be expected to underwrite the education of my neighbors kids? By reducing taxation overwhelmingly,parents would be economically free to educate their own children in the private sector; they would also be able to purchase the necessary health insurance so needed by all... Bruce Roessler SebringControl of greedEditor: Our ancestors learned to control fire for cooking ,heating and scaring wild animals. Just how much do we depend on fire today.? Unintended consequences can be ether good or bad. For more than 2,000 years,men have been trying to control poverty,with no success. Greed is fine if you are living under the laws of the jungle,but it is a scourge of civilization. Has anyone ever proposed a system to control greed? Religions teaches that greed is a sin,but that is as far as it goes The Greeks and the Romans dabbled in a democracy which reduced greed in the leaders,but greed soon took over. When we won our independence from the British our fore fathers established a republic with capitalism as the economic system. The republic slows down the greed of the leaders and the competitive marketplace slows down the greed of the public. Like the Greeks and the Romans,we are being overtaken by greed. Socialism rails against capitalism with the rhetoric that they are greedy and live on the backs of the poor. What they are realty against is the control of greed by the competitive marketplace. The control of greed in the competitive marketplace is being eroded by the lefts constant badgering of politicians to eliminate the penalties of wrong doers with welfare,subsidies,unemployment etc in the name of compassion. Socialism wants greed. How else can they buy votes if they can't promise bread and circus'to propel themselves into power. The unintended consequences of the competitive marketplace is that it provides more goods to more people. The unintended consequences of the government interference in the competitive marketplace leads to a depression. When the promise of an equal share of the wealth produced whether they share in the equal production of that wealth,the population becomes complacent. Why would anyone try to produce more when the rewards are the same? This generates laziness in the population. Looking at all the country s that are in trouble today they have the same Modus Operandi. They were all too generous in their welfare,subsides and workers compensation etc. Does that indicate that governments should be compassion free. We claim to be a generous nation and that the private sector can do a better job,so all welfare should be turned back to (We the people). Russell Errett SebringNo need to know MEs findingEditor: Like many thousands of residents in Highlands County and perhaps in other counties I have known several members of the Doty family,especially Aarons father Jim,for almost 12 years. I am writing to the News-Sun editor,and the District 10 Medical Examiner because I feel compelled to express myself in a respectful manner from my heart. Concerning your article about Aaron in Sundays (Sept. 23 News-Sun it is my opinion and that of many of my friends that the District 10 ME had no right to disclose to the News-Sun,and the News-Sun had no business to print the story. Is there no longer any ethical,professional and compassionate concern for the Doty family? Have they not experienced a heartache that no family should go though? Is writing a story more important than a well respected and loved family and the grief they are experiencing? I think not. Mr. Dressel and the ME should be ashamed of yourselves as I am of you for releasing such information and writing such an article as you did about Aaron Doty. Why couldnt you,the News-Sun and the District 10 ME, respect the Doty Family and especially Aarons memory enough to have the discernment to keep your findings confidential? Is selling papers more important than respecting the Doty family? To you,obviously it is not. Stan Schmidt Sebring Politics never seem to change and most of us n ever expected to see so many new faces,new ideas a nd real proposals for solving the many problems facing America. Those of us who have s een,read,listened to or attending many national p olitical conventions were more than mildly surprised at the recent Republican convention in Tampa. It not only was well organized,al ot of professionalism, which Tampa officials took full credit. It is doubtful ift hey were totally the brain b ehind putting on such a successful and professional event. The Republicans put on a program with only highly skilled and knowledgeable speakers,but timing and scheduling was undeniably t he best in my memory.The m ass media had a tough t ime trying to keep up with t he schedule and often f lubbed who was where and what. Some tried to put their own schedule ahead or behind the actual events. Some also presented their own views and not even close to what was actually said at times. E very speaker,except f ormer governor Jeb Bush a nd Gov. Christie from New J ersey presented the real p roblems facing America. These are problems that most Americans are familiar with,but hearing it from people gave us reassurance that we are not as dumb as some news media we are,as do our so-called leaders in Washington. Gov. Bush picked up one of former governor Bob G rahams speeches and read i t. Graham never made a s ingle speech or pushed for a ny law that I can rememb er,that was not more money for education,more money for teachers and more money for fancy buildings and equipment that no one knew how to operate. Christi apparently has b een listening to out-oft own-mostly President. Both use the big Itoo m any times and spoke mostly about themselves. Both rarely used the word we,us,our,the cabinet, our senate,or our congress. The Republican convention had more women speakers at any political convention perhaps in history. It could be that there are more women holding office today,or that there are more highly qualified,more knowledgeable women than any time in our history. It could very well be that there are more women out there that are smarter,better speakers and more personality than there are men. If what we saw at the Republican convention is any indication,it could be all of the above. Every woman on the podium knew what she was talking about and presented herself as very knowledgeable, informed and offered solutions to the problems facin g America. Ann Romney set the s tage for all future wives, speakers for that matter. Several people said that they felt that Mrs. Romney was sitting in the chair nextt o them and talking. That could be said about all of the women speakers. Some were talking without the aid of tele-prompter,written copy or other visual aid.O ther than Clint Eastwood (who really needed oneall t he others used a seemed to be using TelePrompTer. The women seemed to bet alking directly to the people in America,not just to t hose in the audience. Gov. Romney gave the press (but few were listening) and Pres. Obama a real lesson in what it means tob uild and operate a successful business. He also e mphasized that it is an individual that builds,operates and profits from a busi-n ess. He also reminded the American people that its b usinesses that create jobs, not the government. The convention speakers made ap oint to accuse the government of being the enemy in creating jobs,or causing i ndustry to move to another country. I t is doubtful if few Americans can disagree with the Republicans of 2012 platform. They offered reasonable and attainables olutions to Americas problems. There are many who will agree,recognize the hardships the people are under,yet they will vote for the party. There are many people in this country whod epend on our government (read that people or taxes) a nd they will vote for the party that feeds them. Yet, they may have neighbors who are working for minimum wages,or part timet rying to support their family,rather than depend upon the taxpayer to care for them. Too many Americans d epend upon others to provide for them and their family.Those people do not want to listen to the Republicans of 2012. They dont want to work,study or provide for their subsistence. It indeed was great to see a change. A change is absolutely necessary this year.

C M Y K I recently wrote of the new age of baseball statistics and how Ive been on board up to a certain extent, while still holding on to those more basic and traditional ones I grew up with. Well, it seems the battle of the old against the new is already upon us in this years American League MVPrace. It is coming down to the wire between Detroit Tiger slugger Miguel Cabrera and L.A. Angel rookie phenom Mike Trout. The argument being made between the two is that while Cabrera has the old school stats pleading his case, its Trout that is dominant in the sabermetric community. Its been 45 years since a Major League player won the batting triple crown, leading his league in batting average, home runs and RBI. While it is a distinction based a lot upon landscape and circumstance, it is a measure of the all-around ability of a hitter. As of Thursday morning, as I am writing this, Cabrera lead the American League with a .327 average, was second in home runs with 42 and lead in RBI with 133. But heres where that circumstance and landscape come into play. Just one home run behind Cabrera is Adam Dunn of the White Sox, who is sporting a less than robust .209 with 210 strikeouts. Which just goes to show, there are usually those batters out there of the all or nothing sort, who can hurt an all-around hitters chance at a triple crown. Just as there were those time frames where the likes of Wade Boggs or Tony Gwynn would be the annually expected batting champs, though would never threaten for home run or RBI titles. So it is a true mark of a batters overall ability to be leading in two and barely behind in another with just about a week left to go. By BRITTANY W HITTINGTON News-sun correspondentLAKE PLACID The Lady Red Devils of Avon P ark traveled down to Lake Placid to take on the Lady Green Dragons Tuesday in a key county, as well as D istrict 6-4A, matchup. Skepticism was in the air of how this match would turn out with Lake Placid standing alone atop the standings. But in a shocker, the Red Devils swept the Green Dragons in a quick threeand-out match. After the match, emotions ran from one extreme to the next. e played our game, said Avon Park head coach Stephanie Devlin. We were on tonight, and when were on, were on. The emotions on the other side of the net were much more somber. e fell apart, we lost the game, said Lake Placid head coach Linette Wells. Coach Devlin was not bluffing by any means when she said that her team was on. Avon Park jumped to a quick lead in the beginning of the first set and kept it throughout the duration of it. Unfortunately for the Dragons, they could not just seem to get it together nor get enough momentum to pull the score closer together. The Red Devils eventually closed the set at 25-15. Doing anything to make a change, Coach Wells tried to switch it up and used a completely different line up for the second set. It seemed to be the perfect fix as Lake Placid took the first point and the first lead run of the second set. But victory seemed too sweet as the Lady Devils kicked things into gear and made the set a nail biter. For a while, the set went back and forth between the two squads. It was down to the wire, until the Red Devils stole yet another set by a 25-23 score. At this point, the Dragons knew it was make or break to hold on to their top spot in the district standings. Being down two sets to none built a pressure on top of the Green Dragons that they were going to have to deflate. It was time to put the last two sets behind them and focus on what was to come. I finally made a trip out to Lake Jackson last Saturday. I had been watching the lake for some time, hoping the water level would come up enough to safely launch my boat. Acouple months back when I stopped by the public launch site, I was shocked by how far out of the water it was. But Saturday, I was able to launch my boat and following the white markers, make it out to deeper water. This was my first trip on Lake Jackson since 2005, and although the water has come up over the past few months, its still down compared to years ago when I used to fish the lake weekly. For a lake that covers 9,200 acres, Lake Jackson had always had a strong bass population Just to the left of the boat ramp used to be a nice flats area, with 4-6 feet of water that always seemed to hold a few bass. Now, as I cruised through the area with my electric motor, the water was less than 2 feet quite a distance from shore. Too shallow to hold bass with no cover. Vegetation on the lake is severely lacking, as it always has been since I used to fish it years ago, and the boat docks, which had always held fish in the past, provided coverage of minimal water amounts and seemingly no bass. Throwing a plastic worm along the point and back into the smaller bay I caught two bass, both less than 13 inches in length. One of the bass was so emaciated I could hardly tell it was a bass. Its rare and startling to see a bass in that condition. It always makes me wonder if the food source has grown scarce. I changed to a spinnerbait and then a crankbait as I worked the north northeast shoreline where the water drops from 2-3 feet to 9 feet pretty quickly about 100 yards offshore. One hit on a spinnerbait that came unbuttoned shortly after the strike. Nothing on the crankbait. Moving to the south, southeast section of the lake,I changed to a plastic worm and picked up a 2 pounder on my second cast. Fifty or 60 casts later, the two pounder was the only action Id found in that area. Finally, I decided to move to an underwater hump that had produced for me in the past. Changing to a Carolina rig with a crawfish jig and plastic, I worked the area methodically fan-casting the structure. I was surprised, no one was home. Little Lake Jackson was always my favorite area to fish, but driving by the bridge over Rt. 27 it was pretty obvious no boats were going through there any time soon. Adisappointing fishing trip to say the least. Lake Jackson needs a lot more water before the fishing will improve. Its a shame that such a beautiful lake in the center of Sebring isnt everyones favorite fishing spot. I noticed when I arrived at the boat ramp there was only one other truck and trailer in the parking lot. I assumed it was due to the low water, but now Im guessing many of the local anglers already discovered what I learned last Saturday. Fishing is pretty tough on Lake Jackson. On another note and for those of you who enjoy watching fishing shows on television, I wanted to menSPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, September 28, 2012 Game Notes This game is a rare Saturday night contest with Avon Park traveling to the Miami area.Hialeah Gardens has yet to score this season,and have given up 202 p oints.

C M Y K T routs case, on the surface, has been made mostly on his WAR rating, which is 10.5. Meaning, in the simplest terms, that his being in the l ineup is worth 10.5 more wins for his team than if an a verage replacement was in his place. Cabreras WAR of 6.6 wouldnt seem all that shabby, but the saber-heads are regarding Trouts as truly remarkable. Being new to the world of WAR, my guess is the difference between the two, in our old-school terms, would be like the difference between a .300 hitter and someone hitting .260, or maybe a 50 home run guy and someone else hitting 10. I also found that Trout, among Major League center fielders, had the second leading defensive WAR, while Cabrera isnt even a full-time fielder, and not exactly a great one anyway. How each players team finishes the season is another factor that is being discussed, with Detroit just having taken the lead in the AL Central, while the Angels are two games out of the final wild card spot. I could easily stay old school and just look across the overall numbers for both players. They are very close in batting average and Trout hass cored 18 more runs, in about 70 fewer at bats. C abrera has 15 more doubles, 14 more home runs andn early 60 more RBI, though Trout isnt quite counted on as a run producer in the Los Angeles line-up. You could then add that T rout has six triples, to Cabreras zero, or his 47 stolen bases, to Cabreras four, and you would see a more rounded, overall player. T hrow in the defensive difference between the two and it would seem to shift things into Trouts favor. Of course, then the age-old argument comes up is the award for the player with the best stats, or the player who was most valuable to his team. And this is where, in the midst of writing this, I realized that sabermetrics has solved that. Whats more valuable than being worth wins for your team? By crunching the overall numbers and making comparisons, WAR has quantified what the stats amount to. What those numbers, and thus the player, are worth in wins. Then again, if Cabrera does win the triple crown and h is team makes the playoffs, and the Angels fall short, then how valuable were those wins? D an Hoehne is the Sports Editor o f the News-Sun.

This tournament was flighted; Flight A having handicaps of 18 and under and Flight B having handicaps above 18 with teams matched fairly equally within f light. Scoring was done by only counting the best ball for e ach particular hole on a scratch basis. T here was a tie for first place in Flight A, at 74 s trokes, between Ken Kirby and Jack Hoerner and the t eam of Gary Behrendt and Will David. M r. Behrendt started out with an Eagle on the first hole and a Birdie on the second. T hird place went to Jan Hard and Gary Graves with a very close 75 strokes. These guys really Ham and Egged it; Mr. Hard took 5 holes, Mr. Graves took 7 holes, and they tied the other 6 holes. F irst place in Flight B went to Larry Miesner and Jay Payne, who had a Best Ball score of 82 strokes. These gentlemen were an evenly matched team; Mr. Miesner took 5 holes, Mr. Payne took 5 holes and they tied the rest. Second place in B Flight went to Rick Nelson and J im Foote, who made it around in 83 strokes. T his was primarily due to Mr. Nelson, who took 11 holes to Mr. Footes 2, with 5 ties. M r. Foote is examining closely his golfing future. Third place in B was awarded to Richie Eastep and E d Clay, with 87 strokes. But to Lake Placids disadvantage, Avon Park took the lead and ran. Gradually lowering their confidence and execution, it seemed that the Dragons had dug themselves too deep of a hole to climb backo ut of. H olding on to all last h ope, the Lady Dragons tried to fight back closing the score to within just a few points. The Lady Devils, however, finished off the set and match with a final score of 25-21. This loss for the Dragons and victory for the Devils stirs up a bit of excitement i n the district. With Lake Placid having recently defeated DeSoto, with the Bulldogs then beating Avon Park, Tuesdays o utcome creates a three-way t ie for the top spot in the standings. I t shall be an interesting t urn out as the season shuff les and these three teams meet again. The next chapter of the district saga was slated for Thursday with DeSoto visit-i ng the Lady Dragons. T he Devils were at Frostproof Thursday before they too would face the visiting Bulldogs on Thursday,O ct. 4.

Their return couldnt have come soon enough for many players, coaches and fans. After two days of marathon negotiations and mounting frustration throughout the league the NFLand the officialsunion announced at midnight Thursday that a tentative eight-year agreement had been reached to end a lockout that began in June. The deal came on the heels of Seattles chaotic last-second win over Green Bay on Monday night in which the replacement officials struggled. Commissioner Roger Goodell, who was at the bargaining table Tuesday and Wednesday. e are glad to be getting back on the field for this weeks games, NFL Referees Association president Scott Green said. And plenty of players echoed that sentiment. Never thought I would be excited for the refs to come back to work but its about time it was definitely necessary! Cleveland return specialist Josh Cribbs tweeted Thursday morning. Minnesota punter Chris Kluwe chimed in, too. It was a noble experiment, but I think ultimately a failed experiment, from what weve seen. Itll be good not to have to worry about that when were on the field, he said. Regular refs back for NFL

Actually, there are two separate movies, Bigmouth and Bigmouth Forever as well as a great book. Glen Lau, a world famous fisherman and underwater photographer filmed this documentary int he 1970s and won numero us national and international awards for the movie. Narrated by Rod Serling and hosted by Homer Circle, Bigmouth chronicles the life-cycle of a largemouth bass, almost e ntirely underwater through the lens of Glens camera. The photography is breath-taking, with closeups of large bass in schools, as well as bass feeding and striking lures. Our bass club in Ohio purchased the movie in 1974 and watched it frequently as a group and with new members. For many of us, we l earned things about a largemouth bass that might have taken a lifetime of fishing to learn on our own. N ow, 35 years later, with the help of Shaw Grigsby a nd Hank Parker, a sequel to the documentary, Bigmouth Forever was released and received e qually high praise as well as numerous awards. Ive kept copies of both movies for years and only recently realized I hadnt watched either in quite some time. Pulling them out of my library, I soon remembered why I hadnt watched them for years. Both were done in a VHS format. Like many people, I no longer had a VCR. It had been replaced years ago with a DVD and more recently with a Blue Ray disc player. Aquick search on the internet and I found both movies as well as Glen Laus Limited Edition in hardcover, Bass Forever. The movies are $19.99 each and the book can be ordered in soft or hard cover. The internet site is www.reelbass.net. I f youre a die-hard bass fisherman like me, youll want copies of these two great movies and Glens b ook. I guarantee you that you will see things in these m ovies that will dispel many of your common b eliefs about largemouth bass. A s for the book, Bass Forever, Glen reveals 60 years of bass fishing, raising largemouth bass to be world record breakers and underwater photography of this great game fish, whic h can only increase your fishing knowledge and knowhow. I have dozens of great books on fishing books written by Buck Perry, D oug Hannon, Larry Larsen, Frank Sargeant, Kevin VanDam, Bill Siemantel and Bart Crabb, as well as others, but the information in Bass Forever is written by not only a fisherman, but someone who raised largemouth bass and practically lived with them underwater.

The Eagles offense took the field focused and determined after last weeks loss to the Bulls. Quarterback Graisin Wheelock handed off to Taivion Coston and Alex Pollard, who rushed for several yards throughout the day. T he Eagles defense was impressive in the first half, holding the Hornets to seven points going into the break. But the offense struggled in t he second half. And the defense, though they fought hard with solid t acking by Xavier Mobley, Ronnie Roberts and Coston, but costly turnovers and penalties thwarted all the Eagles efforts. T he final score of the 21-0 loss brings their record to 1-5, placing them in a two-way tie for third place in the division. The third game of the day was the Pee Wee team who met a strong defensive stance from the Hornets after an early score. The Eagles offense drove down the field, with key yardage earned by Kevin Rivera and Kasey Hawthorne resulting in a touchdown by Hawthorne. The two-point conversion kick was also earned by Hawthorne to even things up But the Hornets quickly r esponded with a score of their own, going into halftime with a 14-8 lead. The defense came out in the second half with key tackles by Austin Oppold, Devin Brubaker, Jordan Rose, Austin Smith and ChristianR amos. But another Hornet score lead to the second loss of the season, 20-8, bringing their record to 4-2 and dropping them to third place in the division. Playing the fourth game was the undefeated Junior Varsity team. The Hornets picked off the first pass of the game and converted to take an early lead 60.

C M Y K Do your legsh urt or cramp up when you walk or climbs tairs? Does your leg pain go awayw hen you rest but then return when you start to move again? Do you have leg pain that awakens you at night time? Have you noticed a difference int he amount you can walk before the pain starts as c ompared to a few months ago? Do you blame this on old age? M any people mistakenly think that leg pain is a natur al part of getting older. This pain cycle is called intermittent claudication. It can be a sign of peripheral arterial disease. PAD,a lso know as hardening of the arteriesor atheroscleros is of the legs,and affect about 12 million Americans. PAD occurs when the ves-s els that carry blood to your lower body become narrow o r blocked. This makes it harder for blood to reach your leg. U ntreated PAD can result in the leg and foot tissue dying,which also is as gang rene. This may lead to amputation of the toes feet a nd legs. Atherosclerosis can occur in other parts of the body such as the heart a nd brain which can lead to heart attack or stroke. Symptoms of intermittent claudication include. Pain in the calf,thigh, b uttocks. Characterized as aches, c ramps have numbness or tightness; and May be felt in on or b oth legs. Risk factors can include a ge,smoking,high cholesterol,high blood pressure, sedentary lifestyle,obesity,d iabetes,and family history. Smokers have three times greater chance of developing P AD than non-smokers. Smoking causes narrowing o f the blood vessels,which decreases the blood flow to the legs. The amount of oxyg en is reduced increasing leg pain. The blood vessels lining becomes irritated which can speed hardening of the arteries. High choles-t erol plays a role by building up in the walls of the a rteries in the legs,reducing blood flow. High blood pressure cont ributes to hardening of the arteries. A sedentary lifestyle can result in muscle loss,lowering endurance and higherb lood pressure which complicates intermittent claudication. Obesity can raise b lood pressure blood cholesterol and increase the c hance of getting diabetes. One out of three diabetics has PAD. Test to check where your b lood vessels are blocked includes Ankle Brachial Index. ABI measures the ratio of blood pressure in the ankle to that of the arm.D oppler ultrasound uses harmless sound wave to produce and image of the blood vessels. During an angiogram,a d ye in injected into your blood vessels showing where the blockage is. Treatment for PAD includes medication,exercise,therapy,and bypass surgery,min-i mally invasive procedures such as angioplasty and p laque excision. If left untreated,with less blood reaching your feet,m inor injuries to the feet can lead to infection,nonh ealing wounds,gangrene and amputation.

C M Y K You are frustratedb ecause you had carpalt unnel surgery and yourh and still hurts. T here are many causes p inched nerve in the neck,swelling in t he nerve,incomplete release or another overlapping hand problem. About 20-30 percent of people have a pinched nervei n the neck,in addition to the pinching of the median nerve i n the wrist. Many of these respond to physical therapy. When there is a pinched n erve in the neck,the hole that the nerve exits in the n eck is formed by adjacent vertebrae. If the muscles are tight then the hole gets smalle r and aggravates the nerve. Therapy can loosen things up. If this is not enough,then injecting the irritable nerve is the next step. This is done bya nesthesia doctors with training in pain management. The spinal cord and brain have protective barriers that keep all medicines,both good andb ad,out. The only way to get enough medicine in is by i njection. In a few cases,the p roblem in the neck needs surgery. Carpal tunnel (CTS r esult of pressure on the nerve. In most of the modera te cases,releasing the pressure makes the pain go away.

Diana Carr D ear Pharmacist: I heard on the Dr. Oz show that green coffee bean extract could help me lose weight,what do you thinko f this? G.H.,Gainesville Answer: I think it has good potential as part of a bigger plan that includes aP aleo diet and exercise. I always recommend a sensible weight loss plan as opposed to a magic pill. The only problem I fores ee is that most people with extra baggage suffer from undiagnosed hypothy-r oidism,adrenal problems such as cortisol imbalance, or estrogen dominance andn o amount of green coffee bean extract will fix that. N evertheless,I know many of you have rushed out to purchase this pillr ather than order blood or urine tests,which is the o nly way to uncover the underlying cause of your weight problems. Im a big fan of Dr. Oz, and Ive had the privilege ofb eing on his show three times. He didnt mention o ne important fact on the segment,so Im going to share it with you today. First,a little background. Dr. Oz said the most e ffective green coffee been supplements contain at least 45 percent chlorogenica cid. It is this naturally occurring compound that inducest hermogenesis,which speeds metabolism and b urns fat. I agree with that and just so you know,tea (black,green or white) andc offee all contain chlorogenic acid; its what imparts t hese drinks with that familiar,slightly bitter taste. Anyway,if you supplement with green coffee bean extract (or drink cof-f ee and tea) then I need to warn you that chlorogenic a cid is a drug mugger of magnesium,iron and zinc: A ll Im suggesting is that you restore what the drug muggersteals from your body. You can do that with a supplement called TraceM inerals,or Hawaiian spirulina,both of which are sold at any health food store or pharmacy.Take it 4 to 6 hours away from theg reen coffee bean extract. Finally,I bet some of you are hung up on the part about coffee and wondering if the drug mugging hap-p ens with decaf. Yes it does. The decaffeination process has no bearing ont his. Chlorogenic acid is still robbing you of essentialm inerals,and possibly other nutrients like your B vitam ins and intestinal microflora (probiotics Herbal teas are fine becauset hey are free of chlorogenic acid.

C M Y K Associated PressLONDON J.K. Rowling plans to return to writing for young people and the author says she doesnt rule out another book set in Harry Potters magical world. Rowling became the worlds most successful living writer with her seven novels about a boy who discovers that he is a wizard and is pitched into battle against the forces of evil. Rowlings first book for adults,The Casual Vacancy,is being published Thursday,five years after the release of the last volume in the Potter saga. The 47-year-old author told the BBC that her next book would be for slightly younger children than the Potter books. And she said that while where Harrys story is concerned,Im done,she was considering a new story set in the same universe. I dont want to go mechanically back into that world and pick up a load of odds and ends and glue them together and say,Here we go,we can sell this, Rowling said in an interview on Wednesday.It would make a mockery of what those books were to me. But ... if I did have a great idea for something else,I probably would do it. I am very averse to the prequelsequel idea. A sidestep could maybe ... well,well see. Rowling also acknowledged that she wished she had had more time to work on a couple of the Potter novels she did not name them which had been written on the run.

Associated PressS T. LOUIS With a string of gold albums,a hit T V series and the signature Moon River,Andy Williams was a voice of the1 960s,although not the s we usually hear about. The singer known for his e asy-listening style and his wholesome,middle-America a ppeal was the antithesis of the counterculture that gave rise to rock and roll. The old cliche says that if you can remember the1 960s,you werent there, he once recalled. Well,I was there all right,but my memory of them is blurred not by any drugs I took but by the relentless pace of the schedule I set myself. W illiamsplaintive tenor, boyish features and clean-cut d emeanor helped him outlast many of the decades rock stars and fellow crooners such as Frank Sinatra and Perry Como. He remained ont he charts into the 1970s, hosting hugely popular Christmas television specials and becoming closely associated with the holiday stan-d ard The Most Wonderful Time of the Year. Williams,who continued to perform into his 80s at the Moon River Theatre he built in Branson,Mo.,announced in November 2011 that he had been diagnosed with bladder cancer and vowed to return to performing the following year,his 75th in show business. T he 84-year-old entertainer died Tuesday night at his B ranson home following a yearlong battle with the disease,his Los Angeles-basedp ublicist,Paul Shefrin,said Wednesday. Williams became a major s tar in 1956,the same year as Elvis Presley,with the S inatra-like swing number Canadian Sunset.For a time,he was pushed into such Presley imitations as Lips of Wineand the No.1 smash Butterfly. But he mostly stuck to what he called his natural styleand kept it up throughout his career. In 1970,when even Sinatra had temporarily retired,Williamsw as in the top 10 with the theme from Love Story, t he Oscar-winning tearjerker. He had 18 gold records, three platinum and five Grammy award nominations. Williams was also the first h ost of the live Grammy awards telecast and hosted the show for seven consecutive years,beginning in 1971. M ovie songs became a specialty,including his signature Moon River.The longing Johnny MercerHenry Mancini ballad was his most famous song,even though he never released it as a single because his record company feared such lines as my huckleberry friendwere too confusing and old-fashioned for teens. T he song was first performed by Audrey Hepburn i n the beloved 1961 film Breakfast at Tiffans,but Mancini thought MoonR iverideal for Williams, who recorded it in pretty much one takand also s ang it at the 1962 Academy Awards. Although Moon R iverwas covered by countless artists and became a hit single for Jerry Butler, Williams made the song his personal brand. In fact,hei nsisted on it. When I hear anybody else sing it,its all I can to do stop myself from shouting at the television screen, No! Thats my song! Williams wrote in his 2009m emoir titled,fittingly, Moon River and Me. The Andy Williams Show,which lasted in various formats through the 1960s and into 1971,won three Emmys and featuredW illiams alternately performing his stable of hits and bantering with guest stars. It was on that show that W illiams who launched his own career as part of an all-brother quartet introduced the world to another clean-cut act the original four singing Osmond Brothers of Utah. Their younger sibling Donny also made his debut on Williams show,in 1963,when he was 6 years old. Moon River crooner Andy Williams dies at age 84 Rowling not ruling out another Harry Potter book Associated PressNASHVILLE,Tenn. George Strait is getting ready to park his tour bus. T he enduring country music superstar announced Wednesday during a news conference at the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum thath e will embark on his final tour early next year. S trait will play 20 dates in 2013,then 20 more in 2014 on The CowboyR ides Away tour. He plans to continue recordi ng music and making occasional live appearances after that,but his road warrior days will soon be over. I just dont want to go to the point where I show u p and nobody else does, you know?Strait said in an interview before mak-i ng the announcement. s been great. Ive been d oing it for 30-some odd years and Ive loved it. Sometimes Ive not likedi t as much. And here lately its just the walking out onstage part,thats all g reat. Im still loving that. Its just the hectic p art about touring and traveling and bam bam bam bam. I just feel like its time for me to try something else. N ews of Straits retirement will come as something of a shock in country quarters. Hes so entrenched in the genre hes become part of the bedrock,a landmark to bem arveled at repeatedly over the decades. T he 60-year-old Country Music Hall of Fame member from Texas released his first single Unwoundin 1981,b efore some of todays top stars were born. Since then hes had 59 No. 1 country singles and is the only artist to score a Top1 0 hit in every year of his career. All his albums have gone platinum or gold,selling more than 68 million copies. Traditional country singer Joe Nichols acknowledged Straits impact when he called the singer the Rolling Stones of country music in a 2010 interview. And in a lot of ways, thats been true. Until now. The Stones refuse to retire from the road, while Strait has decided to do it on his own terms. Im sure Ill miss it. Im sure I will,Strait said. How can you not after doing it for so long. It was a hard decision to make. It was tough. Ive lost sleep. But I think about midway through this tour Ill realize that, yeah,I did make the right decision. Its just a part of it. The first leg of the tour will kick off Jan. 18 in Lubbock,Texas,and end June 1 in San Antonio. Dates for 2014 will be announced later. Martina McBride will join Strait on tour in 2013. Strait said he was nervous about whether fans will come out and see him,but thats rarely been a cause for concern over the years. His live show is one of countrys top draws. Hes sold more than 4.3 million headlining concert tickets since 1999,according to Pollstar. S trait h itting the road for the last time N EW YORK (APA jump on the fall television season enabled NBC to get some of its new series sampled. T he premiere episode of Revolution,a J.J. Abrams thriller about a world with the power grid shut down, reached 11.7 million view-e rs last week and finished among the Nielsen Co.s top 10. NBC had aired highlights of the pilot episode during the Olympics and the fulle pisode last Monday,a week before the official s eason opening. An episode of Go On, the Matthew Perry comedy t hat has been aggressively promoted,finished among last weeks top 15 shows, according to Nielsen, which measures media con-s umption. The fast starts by no means guarantee success. But as the fourth-place network,NBC needed to find aw ay to get viewers to at least try their new shows before an avalanche of programming starts for ABC, CBS and Fox. The Voicehas also b een doing well in its return,with both of its e pisodes last week topping 13.5 million viewers. NBCs sampling strategy pays early dividends

C M Y K G ive thanks in all things. If youre having a bad day, y ou might be thinking,I just had a bad day. How can I give thanks in all things? Iu nderstand because my normal reaction is to get mad a nd maybe even feel like throwing my keys or slamming a door. H owever,Gods word shows us a better way of handling bad days or difficult situations in I Thessalonians 5:16,17( NKJV). I Thessalonians 5:16,17 states:Rejoice always. Pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this ist he will of God in Christ Jesus for you.There are f our key words in this verse: rejoice,pray,thanks,andw ill. In verse 16,the Lord doesnt say rejoice or be glad sometimes; He says all the time. Next,we are to pray continuously and giveH im thanks in all circumstances. Finally,the last part of the verse tells us that the instructions commanded int his verse are His will for our lives. To make this verse personal,substitute you for your own name. The passage is easier to understand when it is broken down,but how do we apply it to our lives daily especially when we have had a couple of bad days? Let me share an example from my own life. On the first day,I was ready to face the day with gusto and had a good attitude. I made a list with chores,and I was determined to thoroughly clean my house. Keep in mind,I home school my son. In addition,I had great plans pertaining to his school work. Also,my calendar showed that we were supposed to go to a friends house for coffee and tea. Sounds pretty good? The day didnt go so well after all. My sons asthma flared up,and we ended up not getting to do as much of his school work as I wanted to do. Later,I made an attempt to start working on my chores. Just great! I knocked over a small glass dish and broke it and cut my thumb from the tip to the middle. It was bleeding profusely,and I tried to bandage it myself. No such luck. I ended up calling my friend who is a nurse,and she was gracious enough to come by and help me. In the mean time,I was to keep pressure on the cut. I was so aggravated by this point. As you can tell,my plans for the day had been completely ruined. While I was waiting,I thought what am I going to d o? Im not worki ng any more,and I dont h ave workm ans compensation a nymore. At this point,I began to pray and put on a praise song. While talking to the Lord,Ia cknowledged that He already knew I would cut my thumb. I asked Him to begin healing it,and I also brought my concern before Hima bout not wanting to go to the doctor or ER because I d idnt want stitches. My friend,who is a nurse,final-l y arrived,and she gave me great news. I didnt need stitches. God answered my prayer quickly. A fter she left,I continued on the best I could. I was sad that I couldnt go out for coffee. I became even madder when the throbbing paink ept me awake all night. This was just one bad day. The next day wasnt much better because my sons asthma was worse. I went to the Lord,and I started telling Him about all of the things in my life that I was tired of. Later,the Lord reminded me that I needed to b e thankful. He helped me find joy in the midst of my t roubles by reminding me of my blessings. I had a breathing machine and medicine tot reat my sons asthma. I was able to stay home with him w hile he was sick,and I had my special friend available for a short time to come and t ake care of my thumb. I had many things to be thankful for,but I didnt notice them when I was whining. It was completely normal t o not like what was going on,but why was I angry? Did you notice how many times I used the word I and my?I also said,myp lans.Things didnt go my way.They went the way God w anted them to,and maybe I should have taken more timet o consider what His plans were before filling up my calendar with weighty expectations. Is it possible that my attit ude would have been a little better? The next time you are having a bad day,I encourage you stop and take timet o reflect. Think of something that might cheer you up. Talk to the Lord and begin trying to thank Him right in the midst of your difficult situation. L eslie Deese is a Sebring resident. She can be reached at ljb_628@yahoo.com.

RELIGION Snapshots See You At The Pole W ay down in the country, it is customary to measure medicine with whatever is handy.A small-town doctor once met the husband ofo ne of his patients on the street. Hos your wife, Jake?he asked. Did you give her that sleeping powder as I suggested? J ake answered,ell, Doc,you told me to give her just as much as I could get on a quarter. I didnt have a quarter,so I gave herw hat I could get on five nickels. That was a week ago,and shes still asleep! I t is a fact of life that we all must take directions from someone. A childm ust take directions from his parent. A student must t ake directions from his teacher. A patient must take directions from his doctor.I f they ignore those directions,they get into trouble. C onsider,however,the cost to each of those people if they chose not follow the directions exactly as they were given to them. Thec hild might get hit by a car because he did not look b oth ways before crossing the street. The student might fail a major examb ecause he did not listen to all of the instructions b efore taking it. The patient might overdose on a drug a nd even die because he took more than the amount prescribed. N ow,think about our relationship with God. He gives us directions abouth ow to live our lives. And, as in the previous cases,the c hoice to follow those directions is ours. We can either follow or not followt he commandments of God. Yet,some people would h ave us believe that there is a third option. They teach that following some or most of Gods commands is good enough. Ridiculous! This ist he problem with so many religions today.They prof ess to believe in God and obey His teachings until they find one they do notl ike. Then,they either ignore it or change it into s omething they do like. W e read in Matthew 28:18 20,And Jesus came up and spoke to them,saying,All authority has been given to Me in heaven ando n earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations,baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit,t eaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo,I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Did you notice that? Wea re to teach and obey all that Jesus commanded us. The Bible,our source for G ods instructions,teaches us that we must simply obey,without exception,allo f the commands God has given us to the best of our a bilities. Then,we will not overdose or underdose on Gods prescription for ours piritual lives. In fact,we will receive just exactly w hat we need to live in this life and the life to come. So,follow the directions. K evin's Komments by Kevin Patterson is presented by the Sebring Parkway church of Christ assembling at 3800 S ebring Parkway.

C M Y K By CHRISTY LEMIRE AP Movie CriticIts distracting at first:the fact that youre looking atJ oseph Gordon-Levitt but he doesnt look exactly like the J oseph Gordon-Levitt youve come to know and love. Arent his eyes brown? Isnth is nose longer and thinner? Even the blasi smirk on his face seems like an unfamiliar e xpression given his usual likable,boyish cool. T hen Bruce Willis shows up,and you realize,a-ha! Gordon-Levitt,tweaked slightly through blue-green contact lenses and prostheticm akeup,is essentially channeling Willis because they play the same character reunited in the future over 30 years of time travel. Its not a dead-on impression or even a parody,and its notm eant to be; this is not Josh Brolin doing a younger vers ion of Tommy Lee Jones in the most recent Men in Blackmovie. But the sighs and the cadence and the general persona are there. S o now that weve gotten that out of the way,we can focus on the really mindboggling stuff. We havent even begun to e xplain the premise of Looperyet and your head is probably already starting to hurt in a good way. Its worth the effort. Fans of time-travel movies know that much of the fun of the genre comes from obsessing over whether it all makes sense, both while youre watching it and in long,complicated conversations afterward. Loopermakes sense ... I think. Ive got a couple logistical questions. But whats smart about it and what makes it more compelling than colder sci-fi is the way writer-director Rian Johnson establishes the machinery of the time-travel concept,then steadily pushes it into the background in favor of exploring his characters and the difficult questions they face. Johnsons feature debut 2005s Brick,a verbally stylized film noir set in a modern-day Southern California high school,also starring Gordon-Levitt signaled him as an ambitious filmmaker with a distinctive voice. Here,with his third film,hes expanded both his scope and his eye for vivid detail. He incorporates a variety of genres and influences,from dystopian,futuristic science fiction and dark comedy to parental drama and romance,with a Wild-W est shootout and even some Terminatorthrown i n. But he always stays true to his characters in his fully realized world. The beginning of Looperlooks like some-t hing that might best be described as Les Miserablesmeets a Lancome ad. The year is 2044,and A merica has fallen into a state of stylish squalor. Gordon-Levitts character, Joe,is a junkie and former criminal who makes ends meet in this depraved world by working as a looper,a hired gun. (Paul Dano plays his troublemaking co-worker.) Time travel hasnt been invented yet,but it will be 30 years further in the future. A powerful mob boss known as the Rainmaker sends his enemies back in time to have them obliterated with no bodies to dispose of and no loose ends. All Joe and his fellow loopers have to do is stand in a certain place at a certain time and the victim will show up,hooded and kneeling. One quick blast and its over. But sometimes,future versions of the loopers themselves show up on the spot; this is known as closing your own loop,and it means getting a handsome payout and a set period of 30 more years to live it up. Trouble is,when Joes loop arrives in the form of Bruce Willis,he hesitates,then watches as his future self runs off. Although there the same person,decades of life exper ience have put them at cross-purposes,and in a dazzlingly clever nugget of ac oncept,each is hunting the other. The Willis version of t he character wants to stop the Rainmaker when hes just a young boy so that hem ay enjoy the happy life hes fought so hard for; to achieve this goal,he makes s ome choices that many in the audience will find unsett ling. But the Gordon-Levitt version is so selfish,he simply doesnt care he just wants this old man to die already. T he scene in which they meet at a diner and spell out what they want over plates of steak and eggs is both thrilling and darkly funny. This is perhaps the most flawed character Gordon-L evitt has played,but theres always great honesty and h umanity in everything he does. And while Willis gets to flex his action-star muscles,its the vulnerability and world-weariness of hisp erformance thats even more appealing. The introduction of Emily Blunt,as a single mother seeking refuge from big-cityl ife on a farm with her strikingly gifted young son (Pierce Gagnon,with tremendous presence beyond his years),adds another emotional layer to this story. It softens and slows the film down but thats not necessarily a bad thing; its just one more example of how Looperkeeps changing effortlessly and taking you to unexpected places past,present and future. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, September 29, 2012Page 11B FAIRMONT CINEMA; 1.736"; 6"; Black; 9/28/12; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 3 3 6 6 7 7 8 8 DIVERSIONS Dear Abby: I have been married for 35 years. We have one daughter. My husband has this thingaboutg rabbing other womens behinds. He hugs them and then goes in for a grab. It bothers me so much. It hurts my feelings and Ih ave told him so,but he still does it. Men have told me they d ont want him touching their wives this way. Others have said its disre-s pectful to me. He says he will try to stop doing it. T ry? That doesnt set well with me. What do you think about t his? Am I overreacting? After all these years,I just d ont know what to think. Hands Off in Rochester,N.Y. Dear Hands Off: I agree that pinching otherw omens bottoms is disrespectful (unless youre in I taly,where its the norm). It appears you have spent 35 years married to anu nrepentant lecher. Id think that by now he would h ave trouble hugging any woman twice if she saw him with arms outs tretched. Because you cant convince your husband to change his ways,try this: When a man complainsa bout your husbands misbehavior,tell him he should deliver that message directly to your spouse. Perhaps that will get thep oint across. D ear Abby: I recently married a wonderful man,a nd I like my in-laws very much. There nice,welcoming people and we get along well. Theres just one problem:They are theb iggest enablers I have ever met. With my husband it isnt a big deal because hes very self-sufficient. On theo ther hand,his 30-year-old brother has lived with them for three years. He is jobless and has a drinking problem. His parents dont encourage him to look for work. They give him an allowance,pay all his court costs and drive him around because he got a DUI. They even pay his cellphone bill. What is my place in all of this? Should I say anything? My fear is that when my husbands parents die, his brother will become our p roblem. Looking Ahead in Colorado D ear Looking Ahead: Dont say anything to your h usbands parents. The pattern they are following is one that was set long ago,a nd nothing you can say will change it. It may,howe ver,cause serious hard feelings. The person you should talk to is your husband,so that well in advance of hisp arentsdemise,you will be in agreement about his b rother finally taking responsibility for himself or suffering the conse-q uences of his actions. D ear Abby: I love my co-workers,but several of them have an aggravating h abit of walking into my office,uninvited,while Im eating lunch at my desk. They then proceed to tell me their latest news,jokeo r war story. Abby,those of us who eat at our desks do it so we can keep working and be ready to respond to work-r elated contacts as they come in,not to socialize. B esides,isnt it just as rude to interrupt someone whilet here eating as it is while there talking? I wish my beloved co-workers would save it for the water cooler. Sandwichedin San D iego Dear Sandwiched: I dont think its rude. But because you do,its up to you to tell your well-mean-i ng co-workers that when youre working at your desk,youd prefer not to be interrupted because it breaks your concentration. If you speak up nicely,Im sure they wont love you any less,and then you will love them even more. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips.

The movie takes the story out of the classrooma nd into the halls of bureaucracy,leaving almost every kid behind to center on twop lucky parents battling entrenched administrators and union leaders to turna round a failing school. So essentially,its a s chool board meeting. Or school bored. Despite earnest performances fromM aggie Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis as a pair of m oms leading the fight, ont Back Downlives down to its bland,usagainst-them title with a simple-minded assault ont he ills of public schools that lumbers along like a m ath class droning multiplication tables. Director and co-writer D aniel Barnz (Beastly made his feature debut with 2 009s Phoebe in Wonderland,an intimate story of a troubled girl a ided by an unconventional teacher. Here,Barnz gets lost in red tape as Wont Back Downgives us the inside dope on the teachersl ounge,the union headquarters,the principalteacher showdown,the hushed halls of the board of education. T heaters should install glow-in-the-dark versions o f those old clunking classroom clocks so viewers canc ount the agonizing minutes ticking by as they watch the movie. Prefaced by the generic inspired by true eventst ag,ont Back Down stars Gyllenhaal as single mother Jamie Fitzpatrick, whos desperately trying to get her dyslexic daughter( Emily Alyn Lind) into a better place than John Adams,the dreadful innercity school she now attends. Jamie befriends Adams teacher Nona Alberts (Davis),a once-inspired educator worn down by the system and by trouble at home as her marriage crumbles and her son struggles at school himself. So you want to start a school with me?Jamie asks Nona,after learning about a program that allows parents and teachers to huddle up and seize control of failing schools. Jamie and Nona face predictable hurdles as virtually everyone schemes to dash their plans. The supporting cast is wasted in shallow roles,among them Rosie Perez and Oscar Isaac as fellow teachers,Ving Rhames as a charter-school principal and Holly Hunter as a conflicted union official. Its inspiring to hear about parents going all-out to secure a better education for their kids. Its dreary watching them jump through the hoops they face in Wont Back Down, though. You end up longing for a dose of classroom fireworks a taste of Sidney Poitier in To Sir, with Lovor Edward James Olmos in Stand and Deliver. ont Back Downis an emotional drop-out by comparison. Rated PG for thematic elements and language. Running time:121 minutes. Two stars out of four. ont Back Down fails to make the grade

C M Y K LIVING 12B PA GE News-Sun Friday, September 28, 2012 FloorsEven if you vacuum regularly, floors and carpets could use a deep down cleaning now and then. For carpeted areas Start by vacuuming as usual,to pick up surface debris. Move as much furniture out of the room as possible. (If you cant move it,put some plastic under it to protect the legs.) If you dont want to rent a carpet cleaner,you can use a handheld electric spot scrubber to remove stains.For hardwood or vinyl tile areas Vacuum as usual. Remove as much furniture as possible. Use a steam mop to clean and sanitize the floor. Many models have triangular pads to help you get into corners and around furniture more easily.For other tiled areas If your tile is natural stone, treat stains based on type. If the stain is calcium based, from grout buildup,mineral deposits or hard water,use a pHbalancedcleanerfor stone.BathroomFreshen up the bathroom with these simple cleaning tricks.Take care of the tub by scrubbing with baking soda on a clean,damp sponge. Rinse,then wipe dry.You can clean and deodorize your vinyl shower curtain by giving it the same baking soda treatment.If you have stone,granite or marble surfaces, use a cleaner made specifically for those materials,such as DuPontSoap Scum Remover or DuPont Mold and Mildew Stain Remover for natural stone. Some general purpose cleaners may contain acids,bleach or ammonia that could break down the sealer on natural stone,making the surface more likely to stain.Brighten up the bathroom by cleaning the window, mirrors,light fixtures and even the light bulbs with multipurpose surface wipes.KitchenTake care of those areas that might not get daily attention.Empty the refrigerator and toss anything out of date or that looks like a science experiment.
