City Manager Julian Deleon and Administrative Services Director Maria Sutherland were present and a part of the discussion. Held in a vacant store at 1 Main St.,there was no air conditioning and more than 100 people crowded into the small space. It was hot and emotions were high,but apart from a few outbursts and sharp exchanges,the meeting remained civil and productive. At issue is the citys proposed Ordinance 15-12,which proposes rezoning boarding houses,restricting access to residential areas. Boarding houses,however,are the primary source of housing for migrant fruit and vegetable pickers. First raised at the Sept. 8 city council meeting,ordinance 15-12 was tabled so its language could be revisited by city staff. Patricia Austin directed the discussion from the LULAC perspective,and Deleon from the citys. For its part,LULAC understands there are unscrupulous landlords who prey on farm workers at the expense of the neighborhood. For this reason the organization supports stronger code enforcement. City code,LULAC says,already covers safety and nuisance violations. It is a matter of following through and taking action,they said. There was no need to rezone. Why didnt you just leave it alone?Austin asked Deleon, referring to the introduction of ordinance 15-12.

C M Y K As I drove Jenny Rozanski to the airport in September,s he said something that underscores the courage of a y oung generation of war widows. I want something good to c ome out of this,said the wife of fallen Ohio National G uard Capt. Nick Rozanski, who was killed on April 4. Like every grieving spouse I have spoken with,Jenns pain is very real. Once a happily married part-time m ilitary wife,as she jokingly called herself,she suddenl y and tragically became a widowed mother of two young girls. After losing her loved one to war,every day in Dublin,O hio,is now a struggle for Jenny. Still,despite all the challenges shes faced since April,Jenny has spearheaded the creation of the Nick Rozanski Memorial Foundation,which will pro-v ide scholarships for children in the Buckeye State. I feel like its my duty to continue on with his legacy, Capt. Rozanskis wife said. Since the war in Afghanistan commenceda fter the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001,women all around America have made enormous sacrifices,both on and off the battlefield. Some areU .S. troops; some are military moms,sisters or wives. The story of Christy Meador,with whom I recently spoke,tragically reminds us that America is still at war. Christys husband, South Carolina National Guard Sgt. John David Meador II,was killed in Afghanistan on June 20. Christy,who lives in Columbia,S.C.,has since gone back to work while raising the couples little girl,Elana. Now I look back,and it was just so meant to be, Sgt. Meadors tearful widow said. I dont know where I would be today had we not had (Elana Linda Millsstory is different. I spoke to this energetic,enthusiastic U.S. Army wife shortly after her husband,Staff Sgt. Andrew Mills,deployed to Afghanistan in February. But in June,she received the worst phone call of her life. our husband has been s eriously wounded in Afghanistan,Linda was t old. Thankfully,Staff Sgt. Mills is recovering in Bethesda,Md.,from the wounds he sustained to hisl egs and abdomen. But several others were injured on June 7,and one soldier,Pfc. Brandon Goodine,20,was killed. Linda and Andrew, who regard themselves as lucky,still pray for theG oodine family. Kelsey Mills (no relation t o Linda or Andrew Mills) also considers herself fortunate. Her husband made it home from Afghanistan, even though he lost botha rms and legs in an April 10 terrorist attack. I can either curl up in a ball and cry or keep going, Kelsey said. I choose thel atter. Kelses husband,Staff Sgt. Travis Mills,served in Afghanistan with Lindas husband,Staff Sgt. Andrew Mills,in the same unit. Today,Travis and Andrew are wounded Afghanistan war veterans who inspire us with their valor,as do their wives. Im happy that my husband is still alive,Kelsey, who is raising a precious little girl with Travis,said. s still here. When Melissa Jarboes husband,Sgt. Jamie Jarboe, was paralyzed by enemy sniper fire on April 10, 2011,the Army wife was devastated. But like Linda and Kelsey,she was grateful her husband survived his Afghanistan deployment. I have an acceptance of a path that were all chosen for,Melissa told me on Jan. 12. Even as her husband lay in a hospital bed,Melissa did not think she was headedd own the path of becoming an Afghanistan war widow. B ut tragically,on March 21, Sgt. Jarboe died,leaving behind Melissa and her twod aughters. While Melissa surely g rieves,her commitment to honoring her husband,as well as helping veteranst hrough the Jamie Jarboe Foundation,is unflappable. By the grace of God we w ere given 11 more months to live life,and for that I c ant be selfish or greedy, Melissa wrote shortly after Jamies passing. As the war in Afghanistan enters its 12th year,everyA merican has a choice. Citizens can either keep going about their daily lives while forgetting or ignoring military families that sacrifice so we can live in relative comfort. Or,we canh eed the call of courageous women like Jenny Rozanski, w ho lost the love of her life and father of her children. I want something good to come out of this,she said.

C M Y K By SAMANTHA GHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comS EBRING The work has been set and organizers are already getting in gear for the holiday cheer well before most. T ina Bennett,community and public relations director for Interstate Chapter of American Bikers Aimed Towards Education( ABATE),has re-joined the annual event this year and hopes to bring back the spirit of giving. For the 27th year,ABATE w ill celebrate the season of giving with their annual toy run. Bennett,who has beena bsent from the run for the past two years,decided to take the reins for this yearse vent. Bennett has been busy this past week working to get t he first steps in place. e have over 30 boxes to place in front of businesses inH ighlands County. We dont have all of them out just yet, b ut we do have many in place,Bennett said. ABATE is focused on getting a head start this year and is already recruiting sponsorsf or the toy run. This year a new addition to the toy run s ponsorships has been added, something Bennett is proud to have as a part of the event. We haveT-shirts this year. So each sponsor will have t heir name on the backs of the shirts. The first 150 riders signed up for the toy run will also get a shirt,Bennett said. T he sponsorships are $150. On Dec. 1,all the fun takes place when the riders make their way through Highlands County with a police escortedr un. The run will begin at Blue Crab in Sebring and head to Lake Placid then back to Sebring where it ends at the Elks Lodge. F ollowing the run,a full turkey dinner will be served for the riders,families,sponsors and guests. The runs are a lot of fun. T he police escorted ones are great because we dont have to stop. We drive straight tow here we are going and back,Bennett said. Before all the fun can happ en though,Bennett hopes to bring in as many families and d onations as possible this season. Everything from games,toys,books andt urkeys are needed to make the ABATE Toy Run possib le. I get calls all the time for kids asking about bikes. We would love to be able to give some of those out this year.T hey can be new or even slightly used. A couple years a go we had a gentlemen give us eight brand new ones so we would love to be able tog ive some out,Bennett said. The mission behind the e vent is to reach the local families in need and that is exactly what Bennett plans to do. Last year,they gave toys t o 47 kids and 19 families, Bennett said. I want to try to r each out to help more kids this year. Bennett has set a goal of delivering holiday cheer to6 0 kids this holiday season. T he team works together to screen the families that have applied for the toy run program. ABATE interviews each of the families to ensure there qualified for the pro-g ram as well as to be sure f amilies arent double dipp ing. D onations and inquiries about the program can be directed to Bennett at 3819516. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, October 12, 2012Page 3A AVON PARK CHAMBER; 7.444"; 16"; Black; octoberfest; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 3 3 9 9 4 4 0 0 ABATE seeks donations, sponsors for 27th Toy Run Courtesy photo M embers of ABATE annually collect hundreds of toys to give to local families in need.

After placing at a February c ompetition in Tampa,the Everglades team was given t he opportunity to compete on a national level. e knew we had done well enough in Tampa to qualify. After we qualified,w e went up to Nashville for another competition and we placed third overall,Brod said. The team is gearing up for a long trip to Bentonville, Ark. where the Sams Club competition will take place on Saturday. Brod,who has been cooking for 10 years,knows that the skills needed to win a competition of this scale will truly be tested. The Everglades team,which is sponsored by Everglades Seasoning owner Chris Sebring,has a great track record, but never ceases with their practice. e cook about once a month to keep up to speed, Brod said. e enter into contests all over Florida that are held by the Florida BBQ Association. All the extra workkeeps Brod and his team members in tip-top shape when it comes to cooking up delicious award-winning foods. The Sams Club competition will showcase 49 other top teams,which Brod believes will be stiff competition. The Sams Club National BBQ Tour,which is sanctioned by the Kansas City Barbeque Society (KCBSis the only continuous barbecue competition in the world. The KCBS has a total of 20,000 individual members and 7,500 competitive barbecue teams. The way this (competition) works is they break the country up into five regions. They choose the best 10 teams in each region,Brod said. So this is a true contest. The person who wins willa ctually be the best team in the country. T here are four major components to the competition, each of which the teams must submit to the judges. The chicken,pork ribs,porks houlder and beef brisket samples will be judged blindly by certified master judges. The 48 KCBS-Certified Barbecue Judges will judgee ach team on taste,tenderness and overall appearance. This isnt a quantity thing; its definitely more quality over quantity. There has to be a sample of each product,Brod explained. The winner of the Sams Club National BBQ Tour will be awarded a $50,000 cash prize. The total prize money awarded will be $150,000, according to Brod. This is the most prestigious event ve ever been to ... Ive never won $50,000,so thats something that Id like to do, Brod said jokingly. Even after collecting a number of wins in local and regional competitions,Brod and the Everglades team still have a few butterflies as they prepare for their upcoming contest. e are nervous,but weve done well in other contests so we are confident. The whole team is real excited. e have a fantastic sponsor,Chris Sebring,who will be coming all the way up there to show us support. We are real excited; weve been prepping all week and we will get to Bentonville Wednesday night,Brod said. The Everglades Seasoning BBQ team will work to bring home the national champion title from the Sams Club corporate headquarters. The competition will begin at 11 a.m. Saturday.

C M Y K TODAYSEDITORIALTODAYSLETTERS EDITORIAL& OPINION Page 4ANews-SunFriday, October 12, 2012www.newssun.com After all,he did it for a good cause and we all take our right to freedom of speech seriously. Dont we want our children to paya ttention to the events happening around us,take stands a nd become involved? And,after all,the dye will wear off in a few weeks,sow hat is the problem? If the News-Sun thought t he school was stifling freedom of speech and community involvement,we would be asking these questions too. The situation,however,is n ot so simple. In the first place we dont b elieve the issue is actually about freedom of speech. The school did not ban p ink hair completely,for example. T he principal told the students to not go crazy,but did say they could make ani ndividual statement by wearing pink strand extensions or pink highlights in their real h air. Nor do we take exception to the rule itself. A school is a place of work and concentration as much as a place of experiment ands ocial interaction. Yes,students need to be e ncouraged to learn about the world and connect with it, but the real task at hand ism astering the skills and processes that make connecti ng with the world possible. It takes an orderly routine, supportive atmosphere,discipline,time and effort to allow that learning to happen.S tudents have to be able to focus. W hich is why the school has the policy restricting distractions,including hair dyeda n unusual color. Beyond the one rule itself, a re the issues of following rules in general,and following through on violations. I t is just as important for a school to enforce its entire dress code,as it is for parents t o ensure their children obey it. It does no good,for example,to punish a student ford ying his hair if he sits among classmates breaking the rules in other ways,like wearing low slung trousers or transparent blouses. G ranted,not all rules are good rules can be oppressive and harmful. Those should be challenged. In this case,however,we believe the ban on unnaturalh air color was made for a valid reason parents should h onor,which is where parents enter the equation. In Highlands County pare nts must know the school rules. They have to sign a f orm stating they have read the schools handbook which explains what is expected from students,parents and teachers,and lists allt he dos and donts. While the school,of c ourse,bears responsibility for enforcing those rules,so does the parent,who sets them ost important example. Who else should nurture s ocial responsibility? Children need to learn there is a time and place fore verything. We dont dress or behave in church the same way we do at a basketball g ame,for example. In the end we believe the school is correct in thisi nstance,but have to admit we wish there was an alternat ive to the argument,conflict and lost learning time. We hope the school and t he family can work together to find appropriate ways for the young man to express his s upport for a good cause.

I have had the pleasure of working with Mr. Cox when he was director of Finance,then superintendent,for the past 12 years. I have been to many meetings he has conducted,as well as school board meetings,which have been very organized and properly conducted by Roberts Rules of Order. Mr. Cox has always shown proper respect for each person and their point of view at these functions,showing his continued integrity for all people. I have been to many community functions where he has spoken about the school system and the progress it is making and what he plans to do to continue making progress for the sake of our many students at all levels,with the assistance of his very qualified and professional staff. Over the years,I have seen changes made to better serve our students, schools,staff and families of Highlands County. Such items as:1. budget; 2. construction; 3. salaries; 4. many progressive and needed programs and still doing these things with the way our economy has been the past few years. That is really being able to manage our money for education very productively, in my opinion. I have been to all the debates where Mr. Coxs opponents have made many inappropriate statements,where most men would have retaliated back to that person making comments in a very unprofessional manner,but not Mr. Cox. He kept his cool head and responded in a professional and a confident way,still making his point without putting the person on the defensive. That is the kind of leadership he exhibits on a daily basis. Mr. Cox is the CEO (superintendent of one of the largest businesses in Highlands County,therefore,you need to be sure we continue to have a person we can trust with our money,as well as our children,which he has done superbly for the last 11 years. He, along with the school board,has hired very professional personnel to fill the proper positions. Mr. Cox,in my opinion,has done an excellent job in running the daily operations of the school system and keeping the safety of all personnel and students in mind. Concerning the topic of bullying that does happen in schools,which has been mentioned at many of the debates, if each teacher and school administrator would follow the Code of Student Conduct booklet,which does suggest what procedures are to be followed by the school personnel,I believe the situation would improve very much once students knew they are going to be handled. In conclusion,I hope you will Vote Coxfor Superintendent,starting Oct. 27 through Nov. 2 and/or on Nov. 6. Lets keep our schools on the right track for another four more years. Donn A. Goodwin SebringFleck is proven instructional leaderEditor: The education of our children is one of the most important responsibilities we have as a community. We must successfully prepare students for post-secondary education and careers,so they will become productive,contributing members of our society. For this reason,the selection of the most qualified candidate for superintendent of schools is crucial to ensuring the success of our educational system in Highlands County. As a former school board member of 20 years,I have had the pleasure of working with a number of successful instructional leaders. To serve as an instructional leader (i.e.,assistant principal,principal,curriculum director or assistant superintendent of curriculum),one must meet the minimum qualifications of attaining a masters degree with certification in educational leadership and having years of teaching experience. Instructional leaders receive training in curriculum,instruction,finance, school law and personnel management, which prepares them to serve as effective leaders of schools and districts. The effective superintendent embraces his or her function as the primary instructional leader for the district (DiPaola & Stronge,2003; Waters & Marzano,2007). There is only one candidate who meets these criteria for being an effective superintendent Rebecca Beck Fleck. She has the advanced degrees, the training in educational leadership and 30 years of experience as an award-winning teacher,principal,district administrator and assistant superintendent. We need a proven instructional leader at the helm of this school district. I urge you to vote for Rebecca BeckFleck for superintendent of schools. Margaret Turnbull Avon Park If the federal government wasm eant to create jobs,it would have created a surplus of them by now, and unemployment would be far below7 .8 percent considering the e xorbitant amount of money the Obama administra-t ion has,as it says, investedto do s o. According to the Weekly Standard in July 2011,a report by the administration's Council of EconomicA dvisors found Obama's method of job creation via e conomic stimulus was relatively ineffective and quite expensive,costing taxpay-e rs,their children,and grandchildren $278,000 per j ob created. More than three years ago,a fresh-faced and hope-f illed President Obama said our ailing U.S. economy could be fixed if taxpayers w ould allow him to spend what is now more than $800 b illion in stimulusfunds promising this investment would create a ginormous amount of shovel-ready jobs,and would reduceu nemployment to at or below 5.6 percent. Three years later,even President Obama admitted the jobs were not as shovel-ready as we expected. As good as all that s ounded to the unassuming ear,the latest October 5, 2 012 Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS showing 7.8 percent unemployment pretty much proves,as well-intended asi t is,the federal government cannot replace human ingenuity and hard work to create jobs. The White House would l ike us to believe the slight drop to less than 8 percent unemployment is proof positive the economy is headed in the right direction,and all this administration needs is four more years of economic experimentation to get it right. The slight decline in unemployment is nothing to brag about if this is all the administration has to show for after four years of effort. The BLS reported that,in September,12.1 million people were unemployed; 6.5 million people lost their jobs,an additional 2.5 million were unemployed for less than five weeks,4.8 million had been unemployed 27 weeks or more, and 2.5 million were marginally attached(unemployed and not seeking employment in September). Approximately 600,000 joined the ranks of involuntary part-time workers because their hours were cut back ort hey could not find full-time work and accepted part-time work raising the number of involuntary part-timew orkers to 8.6 million people. M oreover,a study performed by the NationalE mployment Law Project found that a lthough more than half of the jobs lost from first quarter of 2008 through first quarter of 2010 were midwage occupationsmost oft he jobs created by the Obama administration from f irst quarter of 2010 through first quarter of 2012 were lower-wagjobs. T he bad news for the middle class and especially s ingle-wage households is that during the recession,21 percent of jobs lost werel ower-wage,yet a breathtaking 58 percent of new jobs created by Obama were l ower-wage. Additionally, while 60 percent of midw age jobs were lost during the recession,only 22 percent of them were recovered. It is no surprise the amount of food stamp recip-i ents has skyrocketed under this administration. The sad thing is,we can't honestly say the tab for all this socalled recoveryspending is being funded by taxpayer dollars anymore,but alsoC hinese yen. Borrowing money to crea te jobs is unsustainable long-term. The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBOAugust 22, 2012 report projects 2013w ill be worse than 2012, leading to economic conditions in 2013 that will probably be considered a recessionwith unemploymentr ising to around nine percent in late 2013. The same report predicts that if many current policies are continuedthe debt held by the public would climb to 90 percent of GDP by 2022higher than at any time since shortly after World War II,and would eventually lead to a level of federal debt that would be unsustainable from both a budgetary and an economic perspective.

C M Y K A ssociated PressU .S. foreclosure filings dropped to a five-year low in September as fewer homes were on track to be seized by lenders. I t was the second-consecutive monthly decline in filings,although there remainsa sharp divergence along state lines,according to ar eport Thursday by foreclosure listing firm RealtyTrac Inc. On a national level,overall foreclosure filings last month including home repossess ions fell 7 percent from August and 16 percent from S eptember 2011. There were 180,427 foreclosure filings reported forS eptember,the fewest since July 2007 in the midst the h ousing market bust. The number of homes entering the foreclosure process,so-called foreclosure starts,fell to 87,066 inS eptember,down 12 percent from August and 15 percent f rom a year earlier. It was the second-straight month of declines followingt hree months of increases, Irvine,Calif.-based R ealtyTrac reported. Foreclosure starts since peaked in April 2009 ata round 203,000. But the current level is still well above the 34,000 starts r ecorded in May 2005, before the collapse of the h ousing market. Overall foreclosure filings include notices of defaults on mortgages,scheduled auctions and repossessions. F oreclosure starts are either default notices or scheduled auctions,dependi ng on the states legal process. Foreclosure starts declined in September on an annual basis in 31 states,with theb iggest drops in California, Arizona,Michigan,Georgia and Texas,the new report showed. They are among the soc alled non-judicial states,in which court approval isnt required for foreclosures. Foreclosure activity has been declining in most nonjudicial states because theyd idnt build a huge backlog of pending cases during an i ndustrywide slowdown in foreclosures last year. The slowdown stemmed from widespread claims that l enders had been processing foreclosures without verifying documents. Of the 19 states in which foreclosure starts rose inS eptember,those with the largest annual increases were New Jersey,Pennsylvania, New York,Washington state and Florida. E xcept for Washington, they are judicial states,where the courts must sign off on foreclosures. The slower process in states where courts play ar ole in foreclosures contributed to a logjam of pendi ng foreclosure cases that now has mortgage lenders catching up.

PETERSBURG (AP The owner of a 12-year-old Golden Retriever who was shot to death by St. Petersburg police in 2011 is suing thec ity. The Tampa Bay Times reports the lawsuit outlines an argument for why pets should be viewed under the law less like property and more like people. The suit was filed by Roy Glass,who is a lawyer and the dogs owner. Boomer was shot by an officer after a report of his snapping at a neighborhood woman walking her dog. Police said Boomer charged at two officers with teeth bared and growling. Under Florida law,pets are considered property. Though there is little precedent in Florida,a Texas court ruled last year that dog owners should be awarded damages based on sentimental value of a dog.Autistic boys chickens win reprieveDEBARY A familys small but technically illegal flock of chickens that help the familys autistic son wona 60-day reprieve from the citys code enforcement board.

(AP The parents of two Virginia Tech students who successfully sued the state for the deaths of their daughters in a2 007 campus massacre now want to hold the universitys president accountable for failing to alert students and faculty of the first shootingso n campus. Attorneys for the parents a re asking the state Supreme C ourt to overturn a lower courts ruling that dismissed President Charles W. Steger from their lawsuit. A jury in March found the s tate negligent in the deaths of Erin N. Peterson and Julia K. Pryde and awarded their families $4 million each. A judge in June upheld the neg-l igence finding but reduced the jurys award to $100,000 f or each family,the highest a mount allowed under a cap on damages against the state. The women were among 32 faculty and students killed on April 16,2007,on TechsB lacksburg campus,the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. While the actions that morning of Steger,campusp olice and other university leaders were put under the m icroscope in a courtroom, t he president and other officials were dismissed from the case before trial,leaving the state as the lone defendant. Attorneys for the parentsa rgued successfully that Steger and other university officials waited too long after the first two students were shot in a dormitory to alertt he campus of the violence.

C M Y K By BRETT ZONGKER A ssociated PressFifty years after the Cuban missile crisis,the NationalA rchives has pulled together documents and secret White H ouse recordings to show the public how President John F. Kennedy deliberated w ith advisers to avert nuclear war. A new exhibit,o the Brink:JFK and the Cuban Missile Crisis,opens Fridayt o recount the showdown with the Soviet Union. While the recordings have been available to researchers for years,this is the first publics howcase of Kennedys recordings to replay tense c onversations about national security from the OvalO ffice and Cabinet Room. In the fall of 1962,Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev ordered a secret deployment of nuclear missiles in Cubat hat were soon detected by U.S. spy planes. On Oct. 16 that year,Kennedy was briefed on photographic proof of the missile sitesb eing developed. U.S. officials determined from the size of the weapons that the medium-range missiles would be able to reach Washington,Dallas,Cape Canaveral,Fla.,or other sites within 1,000 miles of Cuba,likely within minutes. Soon after they learned of longer-range missiles in Cuba that could reach most of the country. Kennedys team debated how to respond but agreed the missiles would not be tolerated. The ensuing standoff with Khrushchev over 13 days became the most dangerous moments the world has ever faced,either before or since the closest we came to nuclear destruction,said historian and journalist Michael Dobbs,who helped preview the National Archives exhibit. Both Kennedy and Khrushchev had made mistakes leading to this point, Dobbs said. Khrushchev gambled by deploying nuclear weapons so far from the Soviet Union on the U.S. doorstep. And Kennedy fumbled his first major foreign policy crisis at the Bay of Pigs with the failed effort to topple Fidel Castro. The Kennedy administrations strategy called Operation Mongoose to overthrow Castro triggered a dramatic reaction from the Soviets. The archives is displaying some once-secret documents for the first time,including diplomatic cables in Russian with Khrushches signature as he traded secret messages with Kennedy to negotiate a resolution,and personality sketches of Khrushchev and Castro by the CIA. Khrushchev was described as an obtuse,rough-talkingm anbut shrewd and as having a touch of a gamblers instinct. There were also emergency plans developed forW hite House staff in case of an attack on Washington. O ne special assistant to the president was directed to got o Camp David in Maryland in case of attack. ou dont really have to be an expert or Cold War historian to grasp the starkh uman drama that this story really is,said Stacey Bredhoff,curator of the Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum inB oston and of the exhibit. The story from 50 years ago also could be a lesson for the future. I think one thing that this exhibit points out is that a nuclear confrontation can happen and it almost did happen. This happened almost 50 years ago,and it ended well,Bredhoff said. But what we cannot take for granted is that these events can get beyond the control of leaders. The archives lays out the crisis in chronological order with sounds of heated debates in the White House over whether to respond withm ilitary force. As Kennedy leaned toward issuing a blockade order to prohibit Soviet ships from sending more military supplies toC uba,some military advisers thought it a weak response. S till,he prepared for the worst. A draft speech was prepared that began,This morning,I reluctantly ordered the armed forces to attack and destroy then uclear buildup in Cuba.It was never delivered. As the blockade went into effect,Soviet ships approached,along with sub-m arines,leading to tense moments. Kennedy ordered small depth chargesto be fired from U.S. ships to encourage the submarines to surface. What he didnt know was they were carrying nuclear-tipped tactical missiles and came close to using them. One of the things that struck me ... was the extent to which the president of the United States didnt really know and didnt fully control what was happening on the ground,said Dobbs, w ho has written a book on the crisis. He didnt know that the Soviet Union had4 2,000 troops on Cuba, ready to resist an American i nvasion. By Oct. 28,1962, Kennedy and Khrushchev m ade a final agreement through a radio broadcast from Moscow that the Soviets would begin dismantling the weapons. The U.S.a greed not to invade Cuba and to remove the ship blockade. On Thursday,the National Archives and Kennedy L ibrary will release more than 2,700 pages of material from the Robert F. Kennedyp apers that are newly declassified,including documents r elated to the Cuban Missile Crisis. Library Director Tom Putnam said they include the a ttorney generals notes from national security meetings during the crisis and drafts of a memo he sent to the president after meeting witht he Soviet ambassador. The exhibit is on view in Washington until February. and then moves to Page 8ANews-SunFriday, October 12, 2012www.newssun.com S PARTA RD BAPTIST (RET 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 3 3 9 9 0 0 3 3 YMCA; 9.347"; 6"; Black; 10/12-10/14, main a; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 4 4 1 1 1 1 5 5 N ational Archives/MCT An aerial photograph shows Medium Range Ballistic Missile Launch Site Two at San Cristobal, Cuba, during the Cuban Missile Crisis on Nov. 1, 1962.

C M Y K In Florida, black crappie, known locally as specks, are not just another fish in the pond. They are considered the other white meat by many of us who love their clean, white meat and delicious gentle flavor. Florida black crappie a re more numerous than t he states black bass and just as sought after. After the Florida largemouth black bass, Florida black crappie are the second most popular freshwater species targeted in Florida. I f you havent tried fall/winter crappie fishing, youre missing out on one of the most productive and reliable times to catch this tasty panfish. Youd be surprised to find out how many more people would rather fish for crappie than Florida bass. Approximately 1.2 crappie are caught perh our in Florida, and only 0.7 bass per hour. Florida black crappie are not only sought afterb y fishermen, but theyre also on the main menu for b lack bass. Crappie are a very prol ific fish. It only takes a couple c rappie to start an entire school. This is one of the reasons for the seriousness of the FWC black crappie stocking program. Last year alone, the FWC produced nearly 20,000 crappie for stocking throughout the state. Without exception, all the lakes in Okeechobee, Highlands and Polk counties have plenty of crappies, but they can be an extremely finicky fish, often shutting down and turning on with minor changes in air and water temperatures. John Wood, owner of Lorida Bait and Tackle told me just a few weeks back, fishermen were catching 100 specks a day on Lake Istokpoga, with 75-percent too small, but the 25-percent that were large enough to keep were in the 10-inch plus range, with a few over 15-inches. The weather seemed to warm up again and the speck just stopped biting John said. Fishermen are still catching a few up around Grassy Island and in the deeper holes further south, but the big schools have just been hard to locate. Many crappie fishermen f ish with live minnows, rigged on specially created crappie rigs, while others troll with minnows and s mall jigs. John mentioned that the f ishermen recently trolling a t a speed of about 8/10 of a mile were having the best success, catching fewer crappie, but larger ones. Crappie can be found virtually anywhere in a body of water but during the fall/winter season they school up and often spend their time in deeper water following schools of minnows. Water depths vary, depending on the lake. In Lake Istokpoga, as well as Lake Okeechobee and Lake Walk-in-Water, depths will range from 6-9 feet, while in other, smaller lakes like Lotela, SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, October 12, 2012 Page 3BG ame Notes Tonights game marks Homecoming for Avon Park.T he teams have split their last two meetings,with the Green Dragons winning a defensive battle,7-6,in 2010 and the Red Devils opening it up last year with a 40-3 victory.Each of the previous two meetings were played at Lake Placid Last W eek Avon Park: Couldnt get on track in a 35-0 loss on the road to the Tigers at C lewiston.

After the Flag team match was forfeited for a Blue Streak win, the Mitey Mites got things rolling. Trenton Browns 55-yard run crossed over the goal line, with Beau Riley scoring the extra point to put up the first score of the day. The Huskies offense was going nowhere fast, but Sebring got another score on a Davonnie Trent quarterback sneak. Trent then passed to Elijah McGahee for the extra point before another Trent to McGahee connection would go for another touchdown to complete the first-half scoring. The Streak defense kept swarming over North Port ball carriers, with Rayshaun Daniels, Ashton Griffin, Sean Armstrong, Tyler Shiflet, McGahee and Brown all came up with big tackles. McGahee would then take in another touchdown late in the game to provide for the final margin in the 30-0 win. Next up was the Senior squad which saw a defensive battle extraordinaire. Back and forth it went with neither offense able to get much going, until Adrian Perdue final dented the board with a Sebring score. Later, James Ancrum nabbed an interception and returned it for an apparent touchdown, but a flag called it back. Another Perdue score was also called back due to penalty, leaving the Blue Streak lead at just 6-0. But while the Huskie defense would then stiffen and hold Sebring in check, so too would the Streak tacklers tighten things up and keep North Port out of the end zone. And when the dust settled on this battle royale, that 6-0 lead would hold up for the final score. And whereas the Seniors were somewhat held down, the Sebring Pee Wees would not be denied. After an Alvin Tomblin interception, the Streaks started to drive. Tamblin would rip off a 15-yard gain, with Ethan McMillian rumbling for 10 more. Ryan Brown took it in for an apparent score, but saw it called back with a yellow flag. Undeterred, Brown took it in again to get the Streaks on the board. After a halted Husky drive, Brown went in for another score to up the home team lead. Kavonte Jones got a second quarter touchdown, as did Willis McGuire and Brown to build up a commanding lead by halftime. Things cooled off a bit in the second half, as both defenses dug in, and Sebring Youth Streaks tame Huskies Courtesy photo The Sebring Youth Cheerleaders performed well Saturday, Oct. 6, and had plenty to cheer about as the Blue Streaks swept past North Port in dominating fashion. News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE Shannon Huber and the Lady Dragons swept past Frostproof Tuesday, keeping them in the running for the second seed in the District 10-4A standings. See STREAKS, Page 4B By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comThe tone is varying between area volleyball teams, with two battling toward the end and a third pretty much set in itsspot. Lake Placid and Avon Park are battling for the second seed in the District 10-4A standings and each took one s tep closer with convincing wins Tuesday night. The Dragons, hosting Frostproof, rolled to a threeset sweep with sores of 2515, 25-18 and 25-19, moving their overall record to 10-2 on the year, 5-2 in district p lay. The Lady Devils, on the road at Mulberry, also pulled off a three-and-out to keep them tied with Lake Placid in the second district spot. Avon Park topped the Dragons in their first meeting, Tuesday, Sept. 25, with Thursdays match-up between the two teams marking the last district match for b oth, making it all the more pivotal. Sebring, meanwhile, traveled to Winter Haven in a struggling loss on Tuesday night. e miss Lindsey, were out of whack, and no one stepped up when we needed it, explained head coach Venessa Sinness. Still without their starting Volleyball roundup See VB, Page 4B B y STEVEN WINE Associated PressD AVIE In the Miami Dolphinsopeni ng game, rookie Ryan Tannehill became their 1 7th starting quarterback since 2000, which p ut the team on pace to go through 141 QBs this century. One month later, it appears the Dolphins may have finally found a quarterback keeper. yan just gets better and better, offensive coordinator Mike Sherman said. Very seldom does he make the same mistake twice. You tell him that you need to do something, and he does it. He has taken steps every single week. Tannehills statistics werent flashy in the most recent game, aside from one: He had a passer rating of 92.3, his best yet. The rookie threw for 223 yards with no turnovers and helped Miami (2-3 Cincinnati, 17-13. After more than a decade of steady turnover at quarterback, the Dolphins would happily take that sort of play every week. The performance bumped Tannehills rating for the season to 70.4, which ranks a distant 30th in the NFL. Hell go into Sundays game against the St. Louis Rams (3-2 with only two touchdown passes and six interceptions. On the other hand, hes the first NFLrookie to pass for more than 1,250 yards and win at least twice in his teams first five games. He has thrown for more yards in his first five games than any Miami rookie, including Dan Marino. And his bosses are delighted with his progress. Our quarterback position has seen the most dramatic improvement on the offensive side of the ball, Sherman said. Ryans decision-making has definitely improved over the last couple of weeks. Each game we come out less and less Tannehill making steady progress See QB, Page 4B

Florida Trail Association October activities Glenada and Jackson, the larger schools of crappie may be in depths of 20 feet or more. Agood depth finder can prove to be a valuable tool in locating them. Slab crappies take a delicate touch bringing them on board. Known for their papermouths, many a fishermen has experienced losing the big one boat side. Over the past two weeks, my fishing has suffered due to a 4-day trip to Houston and three days in St. Louis, but I finally got out late last Sunday and experimented with my new quest for really big bass. Trolling an AC Plug and a Pike Minnow on Lake Lotela, I caught three bass that werent much larger than the plugs. After a few hours of trolling, I finally went back to casting a bass assassin and missed my first two strikes in open water. Casting into a new area of reeds along the shallower section where the two larger bodies of water meet, I was just about to lift my bass assassin out of the water for another cast when a huge bass exploded on it boat side. The bass assassin is a great top-water bait and generally works best over vegetation, although quite often a bass will follow it back to the boat and strike the lure violently in open water. The bass was a real beauty, 5.7 pounds on my electronic scale. Just goes to show what Ive always said, when you target big bass, you may or may not get one, but just plugging away a big fish can hit at any time. That reminds me, one of my readers, Dixie Lee Burns wanted me to encourage everyone to catch and release and use waste containers for discarded line, wrappers and empty plastic containers. I released the bass back into the water and caught a few more yearlings as I watched the storm clouds begin to gather across the lake. Before I headed out for Lake Lotela, my wife reminded me that I had promised my Mother-in-Law, Ruth Charvat, who lives with us and loves a good fish dinner, that when the fall season arrived, Id be catching some crappie. Since I hadnt really done much crappie fishing, I picked up some minnows, in case the bass fishing was slow, figuring I could catch a few slabs before I called it a day. Studying my depthfinder, I found what appeared to be schools of baitfish in and around the 23foot depth, so I rigged up a couple of poles, baited up with minnows and dropped them down. I normally drift-fish with two rods, and while I was baiting up my second rod, the tip of my first rod went down and I recognized my first crappie bite. Theres one, I thought, a nice 9-inch fish, and I figured I must be on a school so catching a half dozen for dinner shouldnt be too difficult. Thirty minutes later, as the sky turned darker and the rain started to fall, Id had a few more missed opportunities, but just the one crappie in my livewell. One crappie was not going to feed the three of us, but I knew it would be enough for Mom. I headed for home, filleted the one crappie and my Mother-in-Law said it was the best fish she had ever eaten now I need to go catch some more!

C M Y K critical of his decisions. Sherman also coached Tannehill at Texas A&M and judged the youngster a promising NFLprospect, which is one reason the Dolphins used their first-round pick on a quarterback for the first time since taking Marino in 1983. Rams coach Jeff Fisher said it appears Miami made a wise choice. s got tremendous poise, he throws with accuracy, hes not making mistakes, and hes doing a great job in that offense, Fisher said. He and coach Sherman obviously are on the same page, and I think theres a great future. The Dolphins are hardly an offensive juggernaut theyve scored two touchdowns in each of the past three games. But with a rookie quarterback and a new regime led by first-time head coach Joe Philbin, this season is all about improvement. And Tannehill has showed plenty. He took his lumps in a Week 1 drubbing at Houston, when he became the first Miami rookie quarterback to start an opener and threw three interceptions. Even then, Tannehills teammates saw potential. He has never really seemed a rookie, guard Richie Incognito said. He has never had that deer-in-theheadlights look. When I was a rookie, my head was swimming, running back Reggie Bush said. So I can imagine what his head is going through as a rookie quarterback. But he has showed a lot of maturity at such a young age. Tannehills 431-yard passing performance in Week 4 at Arizona was an eye-opener, and the balance between good plays and bad tilt more in his favor with each game. Obviously you dont want to make a mistake in the first place, he said Wednesday. But if you make a mistake, you have to learn from it. If youre consistently making the same mistakes over and over, youre not growing as a player. Youre backpedaling. I have to hold myself to high standard and expect myself not to make the same mistake twice. One area of improvement has been Tannehills reaction to a crumbling pocket. He has made several completions after stepping forward rather than bailing on the play, and he has also hurt defenses by rolling out and finding open receivers. He throws the ball very well on the move, whether it is a pre-designed movement pass or a step-up, shuffle-inthe-pocket-and-escape throw, Philbin said. The Bengals faced a rookie or second-year quarterback in each of their last four games. Tannehill was the only one to beat them. I was impressed with him, Cincinnati defensive tackle Domata Peko said. He doesnt look like a rookie to me. Hes got great arm strength, can make all of the throws and I was real impressed with his composure. Theyve finally found a quarterback there in Miami, it seems.

But Pyshon Mathis r esponded with a 50-yard score of his own to cap off the 42-0 win. The final junket of the day saw another dominating Blue Streak performance turned in by the Junior team. Kamari Brown and Gage McNellis combined on a big tackle for loss to halt the opening North Port drive, with Tyree Dellopt hen taking it in for the opening Sebring score. Tay Tay Ancrum converted the extra point and theS treaks were off and running. A 39-yard Brown gain on an ensuing drive set up a CJ P aul score, with Andrew Dula getting the extra p oint. On the following kickoff, the Huskies mishandled it and Paul pounced for the recovery. Quarterback Brian Lane then faked a pass to Ancrum and handed off to Devion Littles who ran past the faked out North Port defense for a score. Lane then got the extra point to push the lead to 210. Jaquan Dukes, Wilbert Segarra and Dula stood out with big plays on defense to keep the Huskies from being able to sustain any drives. Daniels and Lane then c ombined for a quarterback s ack to halt a drive, allowing Littles to take in another touchdown just before the end of the half. Brown would get another score in the third, with A ncrum getting the extra point, which would mark the final score of the day. Both defenses dug in after that, but the game was no longer in doubt and Sebring kept the visiting score column unblemished with the 34-0 win.

REGGIEBUSH Dolphins running back Special to the News-Sun Southwest Florida Water Management District land managers plan to hold a series of hog hunts on District land this fall and winter to help reduce the wild hog population. Beginning at 9 a.m. Monday, Oct. 8, prospective hunters can purchase permits for the hunts on the Districts website at HogHunts.WaterMatters.org. Permits will be available on a first-come, first-served basis through 5 p.m. Friday, Oct. 19, or until they are sold out. The cost is $75 for each permit. All hunts will adhere to the hog-dog format and no still hunts will be available. W ild hogs, which are not native to Florida, feed on roots, tubors and grubs by rooting with their broad s nouts and can leave an area looking like a plowed field. T hey also prey on native w ildlife, compete with native species for food and transmit diseases to other wildlife, livestock and humans. Additionally, hogs may facilitate the spread of exotic plant species by transporting seeds and/or providing germination sites through rooting. The District allows hogs to b e controlled through hunts when damage they cause is at unacceptable levels. Damage from hogs is occurring more frequently and with increasing severity. Heres where and when the hunts will be held: Alston Tract at Upper Hillsborough Preserve Pasco County Oct. 30-Nov. 1 (day hunts Flying Eagle Nature Center Citrus County Nov. 23-25 Dec. 14-16 (day hunts Hampton Tract and Closed-Areas Tracts at G reen Swamp Wilderness P reserve Polk County Dec. 4-6 (day hunts CokerPrairie Tract at Edward Chance Reserve Manatee County Oct. 30-Nov. 1 (day hunts Little Manatee River Southfork Tract Manatee County Nov. 6-8 (day hunts Conner Preserve Pasco County Nov. 6-8 (day hunts LowerHillsborough RiverWilderness Preserve Hillsborough County Jan. 22-24 (night hunts Starkey Wilderness Preserve Pasco County Jan. 8-10 (night hunts DeerPrairie Creek Preserve and South Schewe Tract Dec. 11-13 March 19-21 (night hunts ) Deep Creek Preserve DeSoto County Nov. 27-29 (day hunts Hlpata Tastanaki Preserve Marion County Dec. 4-6 (day hunts The District-managed pro p erties will be temporarily c losed to the public during the hog hunts. Only permitted hunters will be allowed access. In addition to obtaining a permit online, maps and hunting rules of the areas where the hunts will take place are available on the Districts website at HogHunts.WaterMatters.org This is the fifth consecutive year for the hunts. Last years hunts removed 270 hogs from four differe nt tracts of land throughout the D istrict. District set to hold Hog Hunts setter, junior Lindsey Whittington, the young Sebring squad is having a hard time adjusting. Whittington suffered a grade-two ankle sprain early in last Thursdays match against district mate Lake Gibson. Making adjustments has been one of the Blue Streaks c onstants this season and that trend continues. But with their district slot locked in at third place, Sinness sees the remaining games mostly as a chance to continue gaining experience. Whittington is expected to be cleared to play by the end of next week, just a few days before the district tournam ent. In the meantime, Sinness decided to pull up freshman Kiersten McSheffrey to substitute as setter until Whittington is healthy again. The Streaks have less than two weeks to prepare for the district tournament. Sebring closed out itsdistrict slate at Lake Gibso n T hursday, head to a two-day tournament this weekend and finish the regular season with county clashes against Lake Placid Tuesday and Avon Park Thursday, Sept. 18.

Ive always heard that vitamin D is better. Do you think thats a good idea? P.K.,Rockwall,Texas Answer: Yes,just keep in mind that vitamin A is not the be-all and end-all for immunity.You need adequate supplies of all vitamins and minerals tok eep your immune system in tip-top shape,which will prep are you for the upcoming cold and flu season. Vitamin A helps maintain t he integrity of your skin and mucous membranes,both of w hich serve as first line protective barriers against the invasion of bacteria,viruses, fungi and parasites. When you have a runny nose,youa ssume its the vengeance of your cold. Y eah,I know its unpleasant,but making mucous is a natural part of fighting infec-t ions. Mucous membranes line your nose,throat,intestines a nd vagina. When those body parts lack a thick,slimy layer of mucous protection,youre as itting duck for infections. There are numerous studies that show As profound effect o n immunity,particularly Rheumatoid arthritis. In the J uly 2012 issue of the Journal of Immunology researchers found that vitamin A could suppress formation of a pain-c ausing compound (Interleukin-17 n eously reduce antibodies that attack your joints and collagen. A dequate supplies of vitamin A also supports healthy D NA,so in this regard,it may help reduce ones risk for free radical damage,which is associated with a higher risk of cancer. There are studies sup-p orting As anti-cancer benefits. V itamin A supports eyesight,especially your nighttime vision. A is fabulous fors kin,and can help clear up acne. The drug Retin-A is b ased upon a vitamin A derivative,and dermatologists frequently prescribe it for black-h eads,whiteheads,and cystic acne. Vitamin A boosts collagen formation; collagen keeps y our skin firm and springy so you might say this nutrient e rases wrinkles. The Daily Reference Intake for vitamin A is 5,000 IUs daily,but you may need more, like 15-25 thousand IUs,ify ou take a drug mugger,for example,a fat-blocking supplement or drug,acid-reducing medications or mineral oil. Y ou could eat your way to sufficient levels of vitamin A if you consume a lot of meat, cheese,and milk. Plant foods contain beta-carotene and if youre in good health,yourb ody will convert this to vitamin A,without ever putting y ou at risk for toxicity. You get beta-carotene (and other healthy carotenoids) from car-r ots,red peppers,spinach, tomatoes and pumpkins. I s a good idea to educate yourself about what vitamins and minerals can do for your body,and how to make sure you get enough of each nutri-e nt to support healing and hopefully protect against dise ase. One of the best sources I keep in my library is the book NutriCuresby AliceF einstein,available through most major bookstores and o nline.

Vitamin A erases your wrinkles and more HEALTHYLIVING Dear Pharmacist Suzy Cohen By MIKE STOBBE AP Medical WriterNEW YORK As many as 13,000 people received steroid shots sus-p ected in a national meningitis outbreak, health officials said. But its not clear how many are in danger. O fficials dont how many of the shots may have been contaminated with meningitis-causing fungus tied to the outbreak. And the figurei ncludes not only those who got them in the back f or pain who are most at risk but also those who got the shots in otherp laces,like knees and shoulders. T hose injected in joints are not believed to be at risk for fungal meningitis, said Curtis Allen,a spokesman for the Centersf or Disease Control and Prevention. He said there w as no breakdown available of how many had the shots in the back or inj oints. The CDC count of c ases reached 105 on Monday,including eight deaths. A ninth death wasr eported late Monday by a Nashville,Tenn.,hospital. Tennessee has the most c ases,followed by Michigan,Virginia, I ndiana,Florida, Maryland,Minnesota, North Carolina and Ohio. All had received shots for back pain,and investigators suspect a steroid medication made by as pecialty pharmacy.About 17,700 single-dose vials o f the steroid sent to 23 states have been recalled. Inspectors found at leasto ne sealed vial contaminated with fungus,and t ests were being done on other vials. The first known case of the rarely seen fungal meningitis was diagnosedl ast month in Tennessee. The steroid maker,New E ngland Compounding Center of Framingham, Mass.,recalled the drug,a nd over the weekend recalled everything else it m akes. While there is no indication at this time of anyc ontamination in other NECC products,this recall is being taken as a p recautionary measure, the company said in a s tatement. Meningitis is an inflamm ation of the lining of the brain and spinal cord,and a back injection would put any contaminant in more direct contact with thatl ining. Symptoms on meningitis include severe headache,nausea,dizziness and fever.The CDCs aid many of the cases have been mild and some people had strokes. Symptoms have been appearing between one and four weeks afterp atients got the shots. A Michigan man whose w ifes death was linked to the outbreak said Monday that he,too,was treatedw ith steroids from one of the recalled batches. Not only have I lost my wife,but Im watching the clock to see if anything develops, George Cary said,asf riends and family gathered for his wifes wake i n Howell,60 miles northwest of Detroit. His wife,Lilian,67, h ad been ill since late August,but meningitis w asnt detected until Sept. 22,her husband said. She suffered a stroke and diedS ept. 30,he said. Michigan officials have not released the names of t wo people who have died in the outbreak in that s tate,but did say one was a 67-year-old woman. 13,000 got suspect steroid shots; risk uncertain O fficials dont how m any of the shots m ay have been c ontaminated with m eningitisc ausing fungus t ied to the o utbreak

But what about that bedtime complaint of pain in the arm that your child fello n at school? If both hands are the same t emperature,all the fingers are moving,and there are no bends where they should notb e then you can probably wait until the morning. If the p ain becomes more severe, or the arm swells especially around the elbow,this may mean that the nerves or arteries are getting com-p ressed and you need to go the ER. Y ou can make ice packs using Dawn (only the original works) and Ziploc bags.T hese will stay squishy even when frozen. You should use t he ice about 15 minutes on and the same time off. You can use Ibuprofen (check theb ottle for the correct dose). It has been tested for safety in kids. It has pain relief in c hildren,similar to codeine. Tylenol will also help with p ain. (Adults on blood thinners should not take ibuprofen or naproxen). A good forearm splint can be made using a Time-sizem agazine. Fold it to cradle the forearm and wrap with an ace bandage. Scrapes and abrasions just need cleaning. The best is l ots of water as this dilutes any bacteria so there are too f ew to cause an infection. Dilute peroxide is OK but will kill some healthy tissue.D ilute household vinegar is better. E ven lacerations that require stitching will benefit from a wash out. These needt o be sutured within a few hours of injury but you can stop to wash them out and g et the bleeding under control. P eople on anti-inflammatories such as ibuprofen, anti-coagulants such as Warfarin,and Plavix,may have difficulty controllingt he bleeding. Anti-inflammatories (including low dose aspirin) and Plavis make the platelets that normally plug holesless sticky. Warfarin i nterferes with the normal clotting but once a clot f orms it stays stuck to the wound. The best way to stop the b leeding is to apply pressure using tightly wrapped fingert ips to elbow ace bandage for 5-10 minutes on the clock. No peeking. If youh ave had episodes of bleeding even with minor cuts, you may want to speak to y our family doc about keeping some clot initiator h andy. Then there are the injuries where we did a little too much. These can be lessened by rubbing the area with al ittle ice and then using an ice back for 15 minutes. This makes the aching muscle or joint forget who it is mad at. If you wake up stiff the n ext morning,a little warm water will loosen you up.

C M Y K By MARILYNN MARCHIONE AP Chief Medical WriterBOSTON Combined results from two studies of an experimental Alzheimers drug suggest it might modestly slow mental decline,especially in patients with mild disease. Taken separately,the studies on the drug Eli Lilly & Co.s solanezumab missed their main goals of significantly slowing the mind-robbing disease or improving activities of daily living. But pooled results found 34 percent less mental decline in mild Alzheimers patients compared to those on a fake treatment for 18 months. Doctors called the results encouraging although probably not good enough to win approval of the drug now, without another study to confirm there is a benefit. Investors were more enthused,driving Lillys stock up about 5 percent on Monday and about 19 percent since August,when the company described the results in general terms. Detailed results were revealed for the first time Monday at an American Neurological Association conference in Boston. s certainly not the home run we all wanted,but were very encouraged by these results,said Maria Carillo, chief science officer for the Alzheimers Association, which had no role in the research. Dr. Stephen Salloway,an Alzheimers expert at Brown University,agreed. s exciting to see that there may be clinical benefit,he said,but it is modest and may not make a difference in how well patients live what matters most to them and their families,he said. About 35 million people worldwide have dementia, and Alzheimers is the most common type. In the U.S., about 5 million have Alzheimers. Current medicines such as Aricept and Namenda just temporarily ease symptoms. There is no known cure. Solanezumab is one of three drugs in late-stage testing that seek to alter the course of the disease. Results on one drug were disappointing,and results of the other wont be ready until early next year. Solanezumab aims to bind to and help clear the sticky deposits that clog patients brains. The two studies each had about 1,000 patients, about two-thirds with mild disease and one-third with moderately severe Alzheimers,in 16 countries. Their average age was 75. By JAMIE STENGLE A ssociated PressD ALLAS In the months after Doug Robinson started driving a truck,he noticed his clothes were increasingly more snug-fit-t ing. He was already overweight but soon realized that spending up to 11 hours behind the wheel,frequently eating fast food and note xercising was a poor combination. When his employer,U.S. Xpress,took part in a weight-loss challenge sponsored by the TruckloadC arriers Association,the 321-pound,6-foot-1-inch R obinson signed up. So far,hes about 40 pounds into his goal of drop-p ing 100. His trucks refrigerator is stocked with chicke n,tuna and vegetables. And after his days drive,he walks either on trails near rest stops or just circling his truck. I have asthma,so with the extra weight on there,it i snt good for me,said Robinson,a 30-year-old from Philadelphia. When Is tarted losing weight, instantly I was breathing bett er. I was sleeping better at night. From trucking companies e mbracing wellness and weight-loss programs to gyms being installed at truck s tops,momentum has picked up in recent years to help t hose who make their living driving big rigs get into shape. I think a lot of trucking companies are cominga round to the idea that their drivers are their assets,said Boyd Stephenson of the American Trucking Associations,the industrys largest national trade association. He added that healthi-e r employees help a compans bottom line. T heres an additional incentive for truckers to stay in shape their job might depend on their health. Every two years,they m ust pass a physical exam required by U.S. Department of Transportations Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration. There checked for conditions thatm ight cause them to become incapacitated suddenly or g radually while driving, including severe heart conditions,high blood pressurea nd respiratory disorders. While there are no weight r estrictions,a commercial driver who has been diagnosed with obstructive sleepa pnea and isnt undergoing treatment will not get a medical certificate. Sleep apnea, m ore common among those who are overweight,leads to d aytime sleepiness,a danger on long drives. But there are obstacles for truck drivers who are mindful of their health. In addi-t ion to being seated for many hours at a time,eating options are usually limited to places with parking lots big enough to accommodate their tractor-trailers most often truck stops,which his-t orically have not been known for wholesome food o r workout equipment. Thats something truck stop chains have been trying to change. TravelCenters of America, w hich operates under the TA and Petro Stopping Centers brands,launched a program two years ago called StayFit that includes placing small, free gyms in truck stops,o ffering healthier eating options and half portions, m apping walking routes near truck stops and building basketball courts in some loca-t ions. e wanted to remove as m any barriers to drivers health as possible,said TravelCenters spokesmanT om Liutkus,who said the company has gyms at 42 of its more than 240 locations, w ith plans to outfit them all by the end of next year. He a dded that the gyms have been accessed more than 30,000 times. Gym franchiser Snap Fitness has partnered withR olling Strong,which provides wellness programs aimed at truckers,to open gyms at Pilot Flying J locations. The first one opened south of Dallas in June:A nearly 1,000-square-foots tand-alone building filled with weights and a dozen or s o machines. So far,more than 120 memberships have been sold for that gym. e know that we have an audience out there that needsh elp,said Snap Fitness chief executive officer and founder Peter Taunton. By the end of the year,they also plan to install gyms inside Pilot Flying J truck stops inG eorgia and Tennessee. A monthly membership of a bout $30 also gives truckers access to Snap Fitnessmore than 1,300 gyms,Tauntons aid,60 of which have tractor trailer-friendly parking. P ilot Flying J plans to add a function to their smartphone app to help truckersi dentify healthy food choices at their locations and fast food restaurants. David P armly,the compans employee services manager, s ays their truck stops have adjusted recipes to make them healthier and offer oatmeal for breakfast. Bob Perry,president of R olling Strong,said truckers flock to daylong wellness screenings that his company sets up at truck stops nationwide. e never have to recruit anyone over.We are packed from the time we open tillt he time we leave,Perry said. Robinson,the U.S. Xpress driver trying to lose weight, said that before joining thew eight-loss program,he spent his evenings on the road watching television, checking Facebook and talking on the phone. At first I was like, dont know how Im going to exercise.At the end of the day,I dont want to walk. Its all about planning,he said. I just had thew illpower to do it. Bruce Moss,vice presid ent of human relations for Con-way Freight,said theve found that their well-n ess program reduces the number of people who call i n sick,lowers workplace injuries and controls health care costs. The program gives truckers access to wellness coaches and has thems tretch before starting a shift. L ast year,more than 11,500 of Con-way Freights 21,000 employees,them ajority of them drivers, consulted with wellness c oaches. Eleven carriers participated in the Truckload CarriersA ssociations inaugural Truckings Weight Loss Showdown this spring,with each carrier signing up 12 employees half drivers, h alf office staff. A second s howdown,which,like the first,offers the individual winner $2,500,is happenin g t his fall. B esides taking part in associations spring weightloss challenge,U.S. Xpress has a points system that rewards healthy behaviors with cash. They also hold health fairs and have placed blood pressure machines in their main terminals. All you can do is put th e o ptions out there,educate your people and show them the benefit of what happens if you take these steps,U.S Xpress spokesman Greg Thompson said. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, October 12, 2012Page 7B DR.

The Marietta Daily Journal reports that Cobb County commissioners on Tuesday denied a request from the Powder Springs store to havea wine and beer package license. The vote was 4-1,with county chairman Tim Lee alone in support of the sales. The store wanted the commission to waive its restriction of selling alcohol within 600 feet of a church. The Rev. Bobby Wood of Pine Grove Baptist Church had said congregation members were asking commissioners not to approve the waiver for the store on Barrett Parkway.Fire captain fired over sending religious emails SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. The Spokane Valley Fire Department has fired a captain who continued to send religious emails from his department account d espite numerous orders to stop. The Spokesman-Review reported that Capt. Jon Sprague,who runs the Spokane County Christian Firefighter Fellowship,has been disciplined several times for sending the emails. This year,he received two letters of reprimand and a suspension before the Spokane Valley Board of Fire Commissioners voted unanimously to fire him on Monday. Sprague sent emails to a group of firefighters who agreed to receive the notices. They contained information about upcoming meetings and events of the Christian fellowship group. Department attorney Mike McMahon says sending the emails was an unlawful use of department resources.Thousands march to mark killing of Egyptian Coptic protestersCAIRO Several thousand Egyptians marched for miles through Cairo on Tuesday,marking the year anniversary of a military crackdown on Christian prot esters that killed 26 people and demanding retribution against army leaders they hold responsible for the deaths. Muslim clerics,Christian priests,activists and liberal former lawmakers joined the procession,filling large boulevards to memorialize the Maspero massacre, referring to the name of the state TV building overlooking the Nile River where the violence took place. The protest last year was led by hundreds of Christians angered over a string of attacks on churches and denouncing the military which ruled the country at the time for failing to protect them. Soldiers attacked the crowd,with military vehicles running over some protesters.

The man tried scolding the dog,but the dog just growled at h im. Not wishing to be outsmarted by a dog,he walked over to the door and began to call and talk to a cat that was not there. The dog quickly jumped out of the chair,ran to the door,and beganb arking at the imaginary cat. By the time the dog finished barking and turned around,he found the man settled down in his favorite chair with his paper. This trick was repeated sev-e ral times in the days to follow,and each time the dog fell for it. T hen one day the dog came into the house and saw the man sitting in hisc hair. The now educateddog ran to the door and began barking and growling at some unknown something. Finally,the man grew concerned,so he got up to see what the problem was. Byt he time the man turned around,the dog was in his chair. I t is awful to be fooled by your spouse,family or friends. But,it adds i nsult to injury to be outsmarted by a dog. However,to be outwitted by sina nd those who promote its agenda is far worse. Hebrews 3:13 warns us not to be hardened by the deceitfulness of sin, and 2 Corinthians 11:13-15 reminds us that there are many agents of sin in thew orld who are pretending to be somet hing they are not. It reads,or such men are false apostles,deceitful workers,disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. No wonder,for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.T herefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness,whose end willb e according to their deeds. Sin promises everything and delivers nothing. Sin masquerades itself as freeb ut demands a terrible price later. Sin offers short-term fun and hides its long-term suffering. So,stay alert. More than just our pets are out to fool us.

Are you being fooled by sin? Kevins Komments K evin Patterson Snapshots By RACHEL ZOLL A P Religion WriterNEW YORK Evangelical leaders worried that Mitt RomnesM ormonism could suppress conservative turnout on Election Day are intensifying appeals for Christians to vote. I n poll after poll,evangelicals have overwhelmingly said they would backt he Republican presidential nominee despite theological differences with the Churcho f Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints. But what had b een thought of as a hypothetical question for American evangelicals fory ears,Southern Baptist leader Al Mohler said r ecently,is now a reality with this election and is being tested in a contest that will likely be decided by slim margins. The fact is that Mitt Romney is a Mormon,and m any of our people are very,very uncomfortable about voting for a Mormon,a s I am. I supported somebody else in the primary. B ut,hey,we have no option,said Steve Strang, an influential Pentecostal p ublisher,in a conference call with pastors last week. Strang was speaking to participants in Pulpit Freedom Sunday,an annualc hallenge to IRS rules on churchespolitical activity. While arguing that the government regulations had the effect of silencing pastors,h e also cited Mormonism as one reason clergy h avent more forcefully urged congregants to votet his year. The Mormons are good, God-fearing people in their own way,Strang said. We have to be sure our peopled ont stay at home. Last month,more than two dozen prominent evangelical leaders issued a statement emphasizing thev alues spelled out in the GOP platform against abortion,gay marriage and other policies were more important than an individual politicians religion. Christians generally do not consider Mormonism part of historic Christianity, although Mormons do. Some have tempered their enthusiasm for sound governing principles by their concerns over differences in a candidates theological doctrine,the letter states,without mentioning Mormonism. It is time to remind ourselves that civil government is not about a particular theology but rather about public policy. Among those signing the statement were the Rev. Franklin Graham,head of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association; veteran political operative R alph Reed of the Faith & Freedom Coalition,a political action group for religious conservatives; Mark DeMoss,an evangelicala dviser to the Romney campaign; and Frank Wright,head of the National Religious Broadcasters,theW ashington lobby for Christian radio,TV and digital media. E vangelicals make up about a third of voters who are registered or leanR epublican. Some Republicans have estimated t hat a significant number of Christian conservatives have not been voting inp residential elections and have focused on getting t hem registered. But that effort has a new wrinkle this year:Romney is the first Mormon nominee for president from a majorp arty. DeMoss,who has supp orted Romney since his first bid for the GOP nomination in 2008,said he hasf ound evangelical concerns about voting for a Mormon s teadily decreasing,ut there are people for whom it still is an issue. T he Assemblies of God, a Missouri-based Pentecostal group with more than 12,600 U.S. churches,has launched itsf irst national voter education and registration drive in a presidential-election year. George O. Wood,the denominations leader,saidh e was inspired to undertake the project by C hampion the Vote,which works to identify and mobi-l ize previously unregistered conservative Christians. The Assemblies of God voter drive makes no mention of specific candidateso r their religion,but the denomination is among the many Christian churches that,in an effort to counter what it considers heretical,h as been challenging Mormonism as unbiblical. Pentecostals are known for spirit-filled worship,belief in divine healing and, according to surveys,their social conservatism. I think our people recognize we live in a pluralistic culture,therefore one has to look at a candidate and see what values and policies they have independent of what their religious association might be and make a determination on that basis,Wood said in a phone interview. You can form friendships with people even though you dont agree with them doctrinally. Pastors are struggling to get that message across while still making clear that important doctrinal differences with Mormons remain.

C M Y K By DAVID GERMAIN A P Movie Writer Here Comes the Boom, with Kevin James as a tubby high school science teacherw ho becomes a mixed martial-arts sensation,is every bit as ridiculous as it looks. T hats not such a bad thing for the movie,whose m akers embrace the fact that there essentially doing a live-action cartoon or a variation of that Three Stoogesshort where Curlyb ecomes a boxing phenom whenever he hears Pop Goes the Weasel. The premise here is barely less absurd than James conversing with animals in Zookeeper,yet he andd irector Frank Coraci,who also made that family comed y,assemble a likable gang of oddballs that make it kind of work. Everyone surrounding JamesScott Voss is so disarmingly incredulous yetp erversely enthusiastic about his MMA foray that they defuse the outrageousness of this guy getting into the cage against ferocious brutesa nd coming back out with his teeth and vital organs intact. The real flaws in the comedy written by Allan Loeb and James are the stabs at genuine moments the inspirational classroom hijinks,the simple-headed critiques of the shortcomings of public schools,the humdrum romance as James slowly wins the heart of Salma Hayek (yeah,like thats going to happen). Coraci lets all of that stuffing linger and wander too loosely.There are decent gags and laughs,but in between,its here comes the boor James acting the buffoon to little effect for much of the movie. At the outset,JamesVoss is a burned-out science educator who,so were told, was teacher of the year a decade earlier,though we never learn why he became a schoolroom slug. Hes inexplicably roused to action w hen the school principal (Greg Germann) announces huge cutbacks,including the music program run by nurturing teacher Marty Streb( Henry Winkler). A decent college wrestler back in the day,Voss figures he can make some not-soeasy money as a punchingb ag in MMA fights,where even the losers can score good paydays. James buffed himself up a bit for the movie,so he looks more battle-ready than youd expect. But when he starts winning some bouts and becoming a contender,the movies credibility skyrockets into Rockterritory and beyond. James has pleasant chemistry with Hayek as the school nurse Voss perpetually hits on,but the wooing is mostly dull,and they never feel as though they could bea true beauty-and-the-beast couple the way James and Leah Remini did on The King of Queens. Winklers enjoyably warm and fuzzy as the wimpy sidekick,while Jamessibling, King of Queensco-star Gary Valentine,and Melissa Peterman have funny moments as Vossbrother and sister-in-law,forever s niping at each other while tending an indeterminately s ized brood of kids. As Vosstrainer,former UFC champ Bas Ruttens teals scene after scene with his lowbrow,bear-hugging charm,and singer Charice a dds adorability as a bright and earnest student. Trying f or authenticity in a terribly inauthentic story,the filmmakers bring in real martialarts figures playing themselves,including ex-fighterM ark DellaGrotte and commentator Joe Rogan. The actual fights are played seriously,save for a vomit gag that doesnt provide the humor to justify its grossness. J ames goes into the cage and gets knocked around the w ay you figure he would,a real plausibility gap when he keeps walking away with little more than bumps and bruises after the viciousp unches and kicks he absorbs. Yeah,its just dopey comedy.We should accept it and move on. But then the film-m akers have to get in our face and make believe that Voss could actually have a shot against a real UFC contender (pro fighter Krzysztof Soszynski). Is it any more ridiculous than the plot of Rocky? Well,yes,a lot. But no more ridiculous than Rocky IV. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, October 12, 2012Page 11B FAIRMONT CINEMA; 1.736"; 6"; Black; Movie Listings 10/1210/17; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 4 4 0 0 6 6 2 2 DIVERSIONS Dear Abby: Two men have left their wives for me. The relationship I had with the first one ended very b adly (his choiceThe seco nd started shortly thereafter, and I am still with him. When the first man found out,he tried to resume seeing me and became verbally abusive and harassed me when I wouldnt. He hasntr eturned to his wife and has tried twice to commit suicide. Both of these men are now d ivorced,and their ex-wives and children are understandably bitter. Even though they m ade the decision to leave w ithout me asking them to o r even being aware that they were going to I feel guilty h aving a hand in ending two marriages. I m sure the last thing e ither the wives or the children would want from me is an apology or any contact at a ll. What else can I do to c ome to terms with and accept what happened? The Other Woman Dear Other Woman: You appear to be carrying a large burden of guilt. And thats a good thing. There is nothing you can do to make amendst o the families you have h elped ruin because you cant change the past. All you can do is vow that in the future you won't fool aroundw ith any more married men. And then stick to it. Dear Abby: When I was 9,my mother knitted me as mall blanket,about the size of a babys. I lost her to cancer a year later,when I was 10. Since then,I have carried it with me everywhere. I am 26 now and married. I still have the blanket and carry it with me in my purse. Recently,I mentioned it to my husband and some friends. They were not supportive like I thought theyw ould be. They made fun of m e and called me immat ure. I got defensive and told them it was a reminder of my mother. My husband saidI should keep a picture of her instead and throw the blanket away. Abby,now I feel insecure and childish. Is a security blanket normal for someone my age,or should I just listen to my friends? Mrs. Linus in Tex as D ear Mrs. Linus: Your question is not as unusual as y ou may think. It has appeared in my column before. C onsidering the story behind the blanket,I unders tand why you are so attached to it. Lack of maturity has nothing to do with this. The connection to the mother you lost at such at ender age has everything to do with it. Y our husband and friends appear to have hides of pure Corinthian leather.Dow hatever makes you comfortable and do not apologize f or it. Dear Abby: My motheri n-law goes through my mail and any items on my desk at home. She used to do it in s ecret and would stop when she got caught. Now she d oes it in front of me,but never when my husband is around. I dont care why shes doing it; I just want her tos top. How do I relay that to her without offending her?

Call 314-9876 MCT Kevin James stars as Scott Voss in Here Comes the Boom. James lame Boom lands a few punches Movie Review Here Comes the Boom Rating: PG (bouts of MMA s ports violence, some rude h umor and language) R unning time: 104 minutes Review: (of 4 By JOHN DEFORE T he Hollywood ReporterA true-crime author stumbles onto somethingb eyond his beat in Scott Derricksons Sinister, which follows Ethan Hawks Ellison Oswalt as he grows increasinglyo bsessed with a missinggirl case he hopes will lead to a bestselling book. Occasionally stupid (stretching even fright-flick conventions) but scaryn onetheless,the pic should please horror fans. W hen Oswalts wife (Juliet Rylancejust uprooted to a new town (soh e can investigate the new story) and already getting b ad vibes from neighbors, asks We didnt move a few doors down from a crime scene again,did we?,he assures her they didnt. Shea sked the wrong question: Oswalt has bought the very h ouse in which four members of a family were slain, with the fifth abducted. Ano rnery sheriff (Fred Thompson) stops by before t he boxes are even unloaded to warn the author hes not a fan of his books,a nd doesnt cotton to a fame-hungry scribbler second-guessing his departm ents work. Local lawmen are soon t he least of Oswalts worries. He finds a box of Super-8 films in the attic, each showing a family being murdered in au niquely grisly way. Believing hes stumbled across his own In Cold Blood,he stays up nights scrutinizing the films and looking for connections between killings whosel ocations and victims are still unknown. D errickson borrows the vibe of Joel Schumachers as Hawke,swigging whiskey and giving the crease between his eye-b rows a workout,struggles with the horrible things hes seeing. But the film soon shifts into bump-in-thenight mode. S etting aside Oswalts infuriating unwillingness to turn on the lights when homicidal intruders infiltrate his home at midnight, the movie has him doing some pretty unjustifiably dumb things like walking with a butcher knife thrust in front of him when he has every reason to think his sleepwalking young son might suddenly leap out at him. We allow him some of this,thanks to the pictures coy suggestions that Oswalt might be going a little nuts due to the nature of his investigation. But Derrickson and co-screenwriter C. Robert Cargill are eager to draw in more familiar supernatural elements an occultologist (Vincent DOnofrio) identifies a crime-scene marking as a pagan symbol and the movies proceduralist pleasure takes a backseat to ghosts and a mysterious figure known as Mr. Boogie. The scares are effective throughout,helped a good deal by Christopher Youngs glitchy electronic score. While the end clearly points toward a possible franchise,though,many of the ingredients that make Sinistercompelling wouldnt make sense a second time around. Some of them barely hold up for the first. Rated R for disturbing violent images and some terror. Running time:109 minutes. Sinister is e njoyably e dgy fright MINEOLA,N.Y. (AP Justin Biebers new anticyberbullying video helped his manager and a record executive resolve a legal predicament.
