By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comS EBRING Much discussion and many changes have reshaped the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test since it was instituted in 1998. During the same time,it grew in importance,first determining a students promotion,and then teacher and school evaluations. The FCAT has been controversial from the very beginning and critics continue to worry about several issues. With so much at stake, they say,too much of a school years study is focused solely on taking the test. They add that most students are not well served by a one test shows all approach. As far as evaluating teachers,there is considerable concern that the test cannot begin to measure a teachers true worth. Finally,critics say the multiple choice standardized test doesnt promote the teaching of analysis,process or communication.

C M Y K By SAMANTHA GHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comS EBRING Major Thomas B. McGuire is best known as a fearless military leader during his run in the United States Air Force in the1 940s. The decorated hero has roots here in Highlands County and will soon be honored by the city of Sebring in conjunction with its Centennial Celebration. M cGuire graduated from Sebring High School in 1938. T he young man soon after enrolled in college at Georgia Tech. McGuire spent his firstt hree years of college studying before leaving college to j oin the Army Air Corps in 1941. McGuire attended flying school in Corsicana,Texas where he worked and studiedh is craft before earning his wings at Randolph Field. T he pilot quickly gained a name for himself during his short four years of service int he military. McGuire was named one of the two top a ces during World War II in the Pacific war operations. The decorated aviator earneda ll of his honors and medals before his 25th birthday, including the prestigious M edal of Honor. A few years after M cGuires death on Jan. 7, 1945,the New Hanover Township Air Force base was named after the achieved aviator. The McGuire Air ForceB ase is just a small portion of a legacy left behind by M cGuire. Several long-time Sebring residents have workedt ogether to create the Major Thomas McGuire Memorial Dedication. M arvin Kahn is one of the many faces behind the tribute t o the homegrown heroand knows that the event is a collective effort of many lifelong friends. ve never been involved w ith anything that has been so uniformly accepted by e veryone ... This has attracted so many diverse people that all have a pure intentionf or this idea,Kahn said. Kahn grew up in Sebring and though McGuire was s everal years older,Kahn knew him well.

Teacher of the Month Special to the News-SunHighlands County commissioners recently issued a proclamation declaring Nov. 3-10 as Highlands County Week of the Family. Impetus for the proclamation came from Bette Prine, who chairs the Highlands County Week of the Family organization. Prine started Highlands County Week of the Family in 2010,after seeing it successfully implemented in other Florida counties. Our goal is to offer a week of family-centered, uplifting activities that encourages families to spend more time together. We believe strong families build strong communities,Prine said. As in previous years,Week of the Family will provide suggestions for activities that families can do together. These can be as simple as going for a walk together, looking through family albums,or helping an elderly neighbor,or they can involve participating in community events and activities. On Nov. 3,families are encouraged to attend the 27th Annual Civilian Conservation Corps Festival at Highlands Hammock State Park and the Highlands Art League Fine Arts and Crafts Festival. Both events are free, with the exception of the Highlands Hammock Park admission fee,which is $6 per vehicle. On Nov. 4,families can enjoy free admission to the YMCA Fitness Center. On Nov. 6,the Heartland Library Cooperative will offer a free movie night at the Avon Park, Lake Placid and Sebring libraries,and on Nov. 9,the Childrens Museum will provide free admission from 5-8 p.m. Also on Nov. 9,some restaurants in the area will offer discounts to families.

C M Y K alone in wrestling with how t o measure how much a child has learned,or how well a t eacher has taught. The entire nation is working to improve public educa-t ion. There is a call for setting n ational standards that are more rigorous and consistent state to state. F orty-six states have joined in creating a set of Common Core Standards. That group has divided into two groups,each developinga separate assessment system. Florida is one of the 23 states in the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness forC ollege and Careers. Among the member states are A labama,Tennessee,North Dakota,New Jersey,Arizona,P ennsylvania and Massachusetts. Ten of the 12 states which won federal Race to the Top money are in the partnership. Florida iso ne of those 10. PARCC has a governing board that meets quarterly to make major policy and operational decisions for the 23s tates. The board bases its decisions and tests on the Common Core Standards. According to the partnerships website,(The consortium) is working together to develop a common set of K12 assessments in English and math,anchored in what it takes to be ready for college or a career. The new assessments will require more written work, including showing the process used to arrive at an answer in math. Reading questions will require more analysis and the presenting of evidence. The material will be more challenging. The tests will be administered twice a year once at the beginning,the other at the end. Becky Fleck,assistant superintendent for curriculum for the school district, said both the Commonn Core Standards and new assessment tests are coming to Highlands County. State has mandated PARCC assessment tests be in place for the 2 014-2015 school year. The Common Core is the n ext generation of the Sunshine Curriculum,Fleck said adding it emphasizes language arts,reading and math and raises literary stan-d ards. It actually touches all areas,she said. T he key is to developing the new curriculum and introducing it into classrooms. ve started with the babies and have full imple-m entation in kindergarten this year. Then well go all the way. Given that the concepts are n ew and 23 states are involved,Fleck said there is s till some confusion. I know very little. The good news, she added,is that Florida is not by itself any more,so there is a wealth of informa-t ion out there. Its a huge bonus for us,to tap into work f rom other states. www.newssun.comN ews-SunS unday, October 14, 2012Page 3A COCHRAN BROTHERS ROOFING; 5.542"; 3"; Black; 10/7,14,21,28; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 3 3 8 8 6 6 0 0 S TANLEY STEEMER CARPET; 3.639"; 3"; Black; 10/14/12; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 4 4 1 1 5 5 4 4 ag venture; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; ag venture; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 4 4 2 2 0 0 7 7 Courtesy photo The staff of Highlands Hammock State Park has been actively working on the parks resource management goals.On Sept. 29, 38local residentsdonated a total of 111 hours of volunteer time, removing330 pounds of non-native air potatoes, as well as956 pounds of bagged vines from this invasive species.This special day was part of a multi-agency cooperative effort on the Lake Wales Ridge during National Public Lands Day, and educate d residents on the impacts of non-native, pest plants withinnatural Florida landscapes as they took part in restoring park lands. C ontinued from page 1A It was working with community group volun-t eers at the Y that kind of led to this,Smith said, referring to his campaign for public office. It gets you thinking about givingb ack to the community. Because of them,Im doing this. He sees a commissioners job as setting policy,pro-v iding direction and overseeing the result. As an elected official, Smith said,I am a voice for the people. They are my boss. My job is to listen. He sees the commission as a full-time job. This is where my times going to be spent,he said. One of Smiths important goals is getting everybody positive and working together looking for solutions. Im tired of hearing the same crying all the time. He wants to encourage the elderly to get out and enjoy their lives,and create opportunities so the young people growing up here want to stay. e need to bring in more business so families can provide for themselves and keep the community thriving,he said. I see a lot of growth. On the other hand,Smith added,the county still has to be cautious regarding its budget.When it comes to supporting non-profit organizations,e only have so much,he said. e cant always just give, give,give. Wedont have the money. T his is why he supports d eveloping more sports,art and cultural activities to draw tourists and outside money into the county. The Art League,the softball fields,activities for healthy living,its all good,Smith said. He supports new business ideas like the outdoor recreation area,and thinks there is room for manufacturing or industry out by the Sebring airport. He said he hopes to see investment promoted in the area. Ag has always been a big part of the countys economy,he said. But we need a mix of all three. Smith agrees that waiving impact fees in the current financial market is necessary to encourage investment. We need to allow things to grow,he said. It would be nice to have the impact fee money,but there would be no money at all if new business didnt move in because of the fees. Smith paused for a moment,then said,Life isa puzzle,you have to make the pieces fit. Continued from page 1A C leaning up the Hammock FCAT being replaced in 2014 Classified ads get results!

Supreme Court justice merit retention,energy and other topics were also came up when former Govs.R eubin Askew,Bob Graham,Bob Martinez, Buddy MacKay and CharlieC rist gathered at the University of Florida. Former Gov. Jeb Bush did-n t attend. Martinez said planning f or growth was a priority when he was mayor of Tampa in the early 1980s.H e recalled taking office as governor in 1987 and havi ng to implement growth management laws put in place by his predecessor, Graham. Those laws were rolled back last year by theR epublican-led Legislature and Gov. Rick Scott. Instead of killing growth management,in my view,they should have gonea nd looked at what is redundant,what is causing a dded cost,said Martinez, a Republican. The easy way was to get rid of it. The m ore sensible way,in my view,would be to examine what could be done away w ith that would not jeopardize land use planning, would not jeopardize the environment and would still have a semblance of ordert hroughout the state. Part of the problem with growth management rules was the layering of local regulations that made itm ore cumbersome, Martinez said. He predicted that when economic growth resumes there will probably be another push for statei nvolvement. The state also must make sure it protects its waters upply,the former governors agreed. ater is the most i mportant issue facing Florida now and facing F lorida forever,said Askew,a Democrat who served two terms beginningi n 1971.

It was a fun evening. The 100-plusp eople attending were outgoing and friendly.The music was enjoyable and the homecooked food tasted wonderful. It was also good to talk politics with fellow believers. A significant part of the program was listening to and being able to question one national,several state and many local candidates. Their talks were informative. They each were specific on how they would govern if elected. Almost all comments by all candidates were positive. There was little putting downof their opponents. There was no doubt that the candidates cared about those who reside in the USA, Florida and Highlands County. As one who is especially interested in the welfare of those who reside in Highlands County,I would like to mention the names of the candidates that came to the Hoedown. These candidates want what is best for Highlands County. They were very prepared to speak and answer questions. They are contributing their personal funds and are taking much of their personal time to run for office. Those candidates speaking were:William Bronson,U.S. House of Representatives District 21; Paula House,State Senator District 26; Crystal Drake, State House District 55; Eileen Game,State House District 42; Susan Benton, Sheriff; Rebecca Beck Fleck,Superintendent of Schools; Jed Secory, Supervisor of Elections; Sally Mowery,County Commission District 1; and Michael Stone,County Commissioner District 3. James E. (Jim SebringCox has the heart for jobEditor: A s the election time draws to a close,the mud slingingcontinues and continually gets worse. It is amazing what is advertised and repeated in the political forums. That is why it is such a pleasure to listen to Wally Cox,candidate for the superintendent of our school system. He does not waste time continually criticizing the other candidate. He simply talks about the issues facing our school system. Even with a strong economy,running a school system is not an easy job. Our current economy is making it even more difficult. Mr. Cox has been dedicated to the employees and students of the Highlands County school system for many years. The job puts him on call 24/7. At the recent Sun N Lake political debate,Mr. Cox was criticized by his opponent for not being a classroom teacher. We were allowed to talk to the candidates and I pointed out to Mr. Cox that I have worked for many superintendents during my 36 years in the school system and not all of them have been classroom teachers. Several in fact, had degrees in business and finance. I also told Mr. Cox that in my opinion,he is a teacher. He may not be teaching math or history,but he is continually teaching everyone in the school system,integrity,honesty,work ethics,and manners. He is a proven example of good character and leadership. The degree does not make a person successful in any job,it is the character and most of all the heart. Mr. Cox,you have the heart. I would also like to thank Mr. (Cary Crystal Drake,who alsos poke at the Sun N Lake forum. They treated each other with courtesy and respect. It was a pleasure to listen to them both. P atsy Martinez SebringChicago politics on a national scaleEditor: In my 90-plus years of living in the USA,never have I witnessed such outright lying and character assaination as is going on today in the political arena. I look at it as Chicago politicson a national scale. I also believe that the people of this country have never been lied to by any previous administration like it has been by the present administration of the past four years. If this continues, this country will experience total moral and economic dsaster. Dick Ford SebringCoxs experience countsEditor: This letter is to ask for your support for Wally Cox for Superintendent of Schools. I have known and worked with Wally for many years and have found him to always be interested in what is best for the students of Highlands County. I feel his 12 years of experience will be an asset to our school system. When the economy was strong and there was a shortage of teachers in Highlands County,he sent recruiters to other states to search for good teachers for our students. As the economy worsened,he focused on keeping good teachers in the classroom. To do this he often had to make difficult budget decisions which were sometimes unpopular. His mainf ocus has been to make budget cuts that would have the least impact on the students in the classroom. He has taken seriously his r esponsibility by seeing that all departments are staffed with qualified individuals whether for curriculum,bus drivers,custodians,lunchroom workers,office staff, teachers,etc. Each employee is responsible for taking care of the students needs including feeding them,getting them safely to school,planning the curriculum,teaching them and many other things. They each carry out the job that they have been trained to perform to insure a good education for the students. Mr. Cox has also gained the respect of many of his peers. He was elected Superintendent of the Year for 2012 by the Florida Association of District School Administrators. He previously served as president of this organization and continues to serve as vice president. Governor Scott recently appointed seven of the sixty-seven district superintendents to a board that will advise him concerning school issues. Mr. Cox was one of the seven. In addition,he has been endorsed by the Highlands County Realtors Association and Adam Putnam, Commissioner of Agriculture. I respect Wally Cox for working to keep our district financially sound in these difficult times and for hiring competent people to carry out the many jobs required in a school system. Please get out and vote and cast your ballot for Wally Cox. Lois Brown Sebring As I indicated last week, I was in Oregon attendinga workshop. It was a productive time,and I look f orward to applying what I learned. But it is good to be home again. I got back on Monday and dove rightb ack into my schedule, despite the fact that I c rossed three time zones and have spent the last couple of days in a fog off atigue. Jet lag is not fun. Jet lag is part of what I s arcastically refer to as the of travel. While I enjoy being in Oregon and I love to come back home, the trip in between is less than enchanting. Getting to Oregon had its own excitement. Myf light to Houston ran late, meaning I had to rush in order to catch my connecting flight. I do not like to rush; I dont do it well. I t didnt help that my connecting flight was in a nother concourse,meaning I had to take a shuttlea nd pray that the plane I was trying to get to was still on the ground. Fortunately,I wasnt the only passenger they had tow ait for and they held the plane until we managed to get on. I also suffer carry-on anxiety when I board ap lane these days. People bring all kinds of things onto planes:small suitcases,small cars,and the like. They expect to stuff all of these items in the overhead bins as if there is a small wormhole on the plane and space is unlimited. I worry because I am often in the last group to board that they will run out of overhead space and want to check one of my carry ons. I have a problem with this. I typically have two bags with me when I board the plane:my laptop case and the bag holding my CPAP machine,which I am told must be a carry on so they can scan it in security. There is no way I am allowing any airline to check my laptop case. It not only holds my laptop, but I usually cart my medications in it as well. I know better than to trust such things to the tender mercies of baggage. I would check the CPAP, but Im afraid thed get all annoyed at me for try-i ng to do so. They would probably cite some rule a bout not being allowed to check it,because a breathing machine is apparentlyv ery dangerous. So far Ive managed to g et on board a plane without this being an issue. When it becomes one,I f ear I will cause a scene, and youll hear about how I was taken into custody by TSA security for it. Getting back to Florida w as its own adventure, because my connecting flight in Houston was delayed due to a problem with an antenna. An anten-n a it took them at least two and a half long hours to f ix,while we passengers cooled our heels. I realize the antenna was important,but two and a half hours? Did they have to bring it in from another state or something? Noo ffense,but how hard is it to switch out an antenna anyway? (Looking over this column,I realize that I amo nce again bashing Houston,as I have done in the past. I am sure its a lovely city with many wonderful citizens. I just keep running into problems at the airport.) In spite of the setback,I did eventually make it back to Highlands County,intact but exhausted. I will be a happy homebody until my next trip out of the state, when I will once again put myself at the mercies of the airlines. Hopefully I wont have to cause a scene. You might never hear from me again. Laura Ware is a Sebring resident. She can be contacted by e-mail at bookwormlady@ embarqmail.com Visit her website at www.laurahware.com.

A ccording to historians,there have been nastier,more divisive elections in the past. Abraham Lincoln,for example, faced especially cruel and harsh personal criticism. T his years campaign season,however which seems to have a half-life of 100 years has to be in the top 10 mosta nnoying and disagreeable election cycles ever,certainly the worst in living memory. W e mention this because the final frenzy approaches. N on-stop political ads stream on T.V. Many of them run what seems like a billion times a day. Newspapers pontifi-c ate,radio hosts opine and the Internet overflows with bloggers anxious to give us the benefit of their wisdom. From Facebook to mass e-mail camp aigns to sky-writing and restaurant place mats,everywhere you turn there are political advertisements making outlandish claims. Wre making this up,but it wont s urprise us if,before its over,someone accuses Mitt Romney of being on the grassy knoll in Dallas,and Barrack Obama is implicated in Jimmy Hoffs disappearance. T he great challenge is just before us, shaking free of group think and taking individual action by which,ofc ourse,we mean voting. At the risk of disillusioning you,its important to remember not everything inp rint or on a computer screen is the truth there is a huge difference between p ropaganda and hard news. The same is true of television dont let the talking heads in living color fooly ou. Make up your own mind. Rely on news reports instead of editorials. Ignore all superlatives and exclamation marks. Be wary of a candidates mothers praise,or a former boss endorsement. On the other hand,pay attention to details,like who creates and pays for an ad. For example and again were making this up if an ad claims Romney will ban all pickle making in the country,and its paid for by the CGDC (the Cucumber Growers Democratic Caucus),double check the facts. Likewise,if an ad claims Obama will declare the house fly an endangered species,and the ad is brought to you by the RCIM (the Republican Coalition of Insecticide Manufacturers),be suspicious.

C M Y K TALLAHASSEE (AP Floridas workers compensation insurance rates have climbed from 40th to 29thm ost expensive in the nation over the last two years. That 11-point increase was reported in a study released this week by the OregonD epartment of Consumer & Business Services. It issues a comparison of rates in the 50 states on Jan. 1 of each evennumbered year. The Florida Office of Insurance Regulation noted in a news release Friday that the Sunshine States rate of $1.82 per $100 of payroll is still below the national median of $1.88. Businesses and other employers buy workers compensation insurance to covero n-the-job injuries. Florida Insurance Commissioner Kevin McCarty said the study shows that the state needs to be proactive in consideringl egislation to keep its rates nationally competitive.

C M Y K By JAMIE WILLIAMS S pecial to the News-SunAVON PARK Lake Placid put a damper on the Avon Park Homecomingf estivities with a stunning 33-6 victory on the gridiron Friday night. e played hard t onight, said Lake Placid head coach Jason Holden. We got some breaks tonight and the ball b ounced our way a couple of times. T hey did not bounce that way early on as Lake Placid found themselves on the Avon Park five-yard line after Robert Walton completed a 32 yard pass to Truknow Johnson and then ran the ball himself for another 12 yards. On first and goal from the 5, Walton nearly lost the ball, but was able to recover it. On third and goal from the two, he fumbled again with Avon Parks Josh Jones recovering the ball to stop the Lake Placid threat. The Dragons would get the ball back a few minutes later after forcing a Red Devil punt. After being sacked on the first play for an eight-yard loss, Johnson caught his second pass of the game a 40-yarder from Walton that he took to the house for an early 6-0 lead. Lake Placid got the ball back early in the second quarter with great field position when Keplet Charite intercepted an Avon Park pass at the Avon Park 40 yard line. The Dragons put together an eight-play drive that ended with Walton throwing his second touchdown pass of the game to Foster Walker in the left corner of the end zone. With the extra point, Lake Placid went into the half with a 13-0 lead. Lake Placid held the ball for five minutes to start the second half, but were forced to punt when the drive stalled at midfield. The punt pinned the Devils back on their 10 yard line, and three plays later a Dragon defender stripped the Avon Park running back of the ball and recovered it on the one. From there Eldon McKenzie bulled it in to expand Lake Placids lead to 20-0.

B y BRITTANY WHITTINGTON N ews-Sun correspondentA VON PARK There was much at stake coming into Thursdays match between Avon Park and Lake Placid. T he country rivalry was one thing, that it now comes w ith district seedings adds to i t, and on this night it would be to see who would go into the district tournament as second and third seed. Avon Park proved that they were more than worthy of stealing that second spot away from the Dragons. This match was much more stressful than the last meeting between these two last week. While Avon Park still managed to pull off a sweep, Lake Placid certainly upped itseffort to keep it close throughout. The three sets were finished with scores of 25-21, 25-21 and 25-23. They did play us a lot tougher this time, says Red Devil head coach Stephanie Devlin in reference to Lake Placid. The difference tonight was we were on our offense. I had confidence in my girls that we could play just as tough this time as we did last time. Coach Devlin did indeed have every right to have confidence in her team. Yes, they were not blow outs by any means, but they were well deserved wins. Every element was falling into play for the Red Devils;w ith their offense being their main weapon. Across the board for their hitters, the number of kills w as fairly even, including setter Otaysha Smith getting a few kills for herself. T he emotion on the opposite side of the net was pleased as well. Although Lake Placid walked away with the loss, head coach Linette Wells still was able to come up with positive things to say about the night. lot better than last time, except we were making way too many errors, she said. e moved players around throughout the set to see what rotation meshed the best and I think we have found it She also explained that they are taking the matches game by game and cleaning up their mistakes. Amajor source to the Green Dragons loss was their amount of errors, which according to Wells totaled 40 on the night. In order to turn things around, they are going to have to eliminate the majority of those errors. The Lady Dragons have one shot to decrease the amount of errors they were making on Tuesday as they finish off the regular season for their senior night.

B y DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comSEBRING It had nearly a ll the ingredients one could hope for on a Homecoming night. Acool breeze under an earlier darkening sky drifted across Firemens Field, a fully healthy Blue Streak squad fighting tooth and nail in an evenly matched and exciting contest with George J enkins, a halftime show that b rought the house down and time on the clock for a potentially winning drive. That it ended with a 17-14 Eagle win perhaps ended the night on a more dour note, but the promise shown could-n t be denied. B ig plays would be the predominant theme of the night, and its how things started as on the first play from scrimmage, Jenkins quarterback Jaylen Odum hit running back Trent Rains with a pass in the flat that went for a 68-yard gain to the Sebring 12. But the defense would s tiffen, forcing six more plays from the Eagles before Rains found a hole from the one for a 7-0 lead at the 8:36 mark. The Blue Streak offense moved the ball a bit on its first possession, pushing it out near midfield behind the running of A.J. Gayle, but a delay of game flag and an incompletion forced a punt. Which is how it would go f or both teams for most of the rest of the first half relatively sustained drives that ultimately ran out of gas. That was, until late in the second quarter when, backed up at their own five, the Streaks fall just short See SEBRING Page 4B By JOSEPH WHITE Associated PressWASHINGTON Drew Storen sat at his locker, staring straight ahead. Whatever solo thoughts he had were frequently interrupted by teammates offering hugs, sympathy and encouragement. Making the rounds in the clubhouse, meanwhile, was part-owner Mark Lerner, son of principal owner Ted Lerner, who patted players on the shoulder and shook their hands. He wiped a tear from his eye as he spoke to slugger Michael Morse. Someone just said to me, Weve learned to win now, Lerner said. And thats no easy task. The Washington Nationals did indeed bring winning baseball back to the nations capital at long last. They also collapsed in the postseason in a way that will be tough to forget. The Nationalshistoric season came to an end Friday night with a 9-7 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 5 of the NLdivision series. Washington sported the best record in baseball during the regular season, but the newfangled Natitude of a roster flush with young postseason neophytes blew a six-run lead against the experienced club that won the World Series a year ago. Storen took the mound with a two-run lead in the ninth and gave up four runs, allowing two-run singles to Daniel Descalso and Pete Kozma. Storen had two Cardinals batters down to their last strike with two outs, but he walked Yadier Molina and David Freese to keep the inning going. e had it right there, and the most disappointing thing Ill say is that I just let these guys down, Storen said. I know theres an unbelievable crowd and unbelievable support, but for the amount of adversity we dealt with this year, for Nationals collapse See NATS, Page 3B MCTphoto St. Louis Cardinals shortstop Pete Kozma (38 on a single scoring David Freese Daniel Descalso in the 9th inning of Game 5 of the National League Division Series against the Washingtin Nationals at Nationals Park in Washington, D.C., Friday, October 12.

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 soldo ut. T he cost is $75 for each permit. All hunts will adhere to the hog-dog format and no still hunts will be available. Wild hogs, which are not native to Florida, feed on roots, tubors and grubs by r ooting with their broad snouts and can leave an area looking like a plowed field. They also prey on native wildlife, 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 ger-m ination sites through rooting. The District allows hogs to be 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 C losed-Areas Tracts at Green Swamp Wilderness Preserve Polk County Dec. 4-6 (day hunts CokerPrairie Tract at Edward Chance Reserve M anatee 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 CountyJ an. 22-24 (night hunts Starkey Wilderness Preserve P asco County Jan. 8-10 (night hunts DeerPrairie Creek P reserve 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 p roperties will be temporarily closed to the public during the hog hunts.

It was the largest comeback ever in a winner-take-all postseason game, according to STATS LLC. N o other club in this sort of ultimate pressure situation had come back from more than four runs down. Storen threw five pitches with two strikes and two outs in the ninth. All were balls. I think he just tried to be too fine, manager Davey Johnson said. Hes got a great-moving fastball. Just n eed to throw it over Storen said he had no problems with the umpires strike zone. The Cardinals were just disciplined at the plate when it counted. I made good pitches, he said. I wouldnt change a t hing. I have no regrets. The Nationals had been let down by their bats in the first four games of the series, scoring only nine runs. But they greeted Adam W ainwright with a double, triple and homer by Jayson Werth, Bryce Harper and Ryan Zimmerman in the first inning and chased the St. Louis starter with home runs by Harper and Morse in the third. The Cardinals battled back, cutting into the 6-0 deficit with a run in the fourth, two in the fifth, one in t he seventh and one in the e ighth. Descalsos solo homer in the eighth off Tyler Clippardm ade it a one-run game, but t he Nationals pulled back ahead by two in the bottom of the inning on Kurt Suzukis RBI single. B ut Storen, who regained the closers job late in the season after Clippard struggled, couldnt finish the job. The season of Natitude was over, and a Cardinals team thats shown a knack for winning elimination games was moving on. Theyve proven that if theres a team out there to d o it, its going to be them shortstop Ian Desmond said. s a good group of guys over there. I think they got the leg up on us in experience, and now next year we can say weve got a little experience. Certainly the way the team is built, a winning postseason team shouldnt be far behind. Washington lost baseball when the Senators moved to Texas after the 1971 season and didnt get it back until the Expos moved to D.C. in2 005. T he team they got needed some work, finishing last in the NLEast in five of its first six years while new owners were found, a stadium was built and a farm system was rebuilt. The 100-loss seasons in 2 008 and 2009 were particularly brutal, but at least they put the Nationals in position to take blue-chippers Stephen Strasburg and Harper with the No. 1 overall draft picks in 2009 and 2010. Built around such youth and led by Johnson, the oldest manager in the majors this years 98-win team gave Washington its first postseason experience in 79 years.

But Gayle broke off another seven-yard run and Jake Bryan bulled up the m iddle for seven yards on two carries to get it to midfield. Watson then dropped b ack in the pocket and patiently went through his reads before spotting Decaris Jones deep down the middle of the field. The unleashed throw was hauled in just outside the 10, with Jones taking it in the rest of the way for the tying score with 14 seconds left in the half. The excitement of the late score was still making its way through the crowd, but was about to be taken up a notch as the Homecoming King and Queen were soon announced and presented during the halftime ceremony. Astrong round of applause arose when senior football player Larry Scott was named as King, though it paled by comparison to the explosion of excitement, cheers and tears when a surprised and delighted Samantha Alamo heard her name called as Queen. Alamo, who has Down syndrome, was soon swarmed by her classmates as the applause continued with nary a dry eye in the house. When the celebration slowly wound down, it was back to the action on the field and things soon went south. After three Sebring plays totaled seven yards to their own 33, a miscue on the punt snap put the ball into the Eagles talons at the Sebring four. Moments later, Rains took it in to put Jenkins back on top with barely a minute and a half gone in the third. The defense would settle back in after that, with Ezell Gammage and Jacquae Pert coming up with big sacks to help thwart Jenkinsdrives, but the offense couldnt quite get into gear, with two Eagle interceptions halting drives that had barely begun. A41-yard Rains run later in the third had the visitors to the Sebring 17, but this time would not get across the goal line, settling for a Chandler Jones field goal at the onset of the fourth quarter to up the lead to 17-7. Willie Allen, though, would soon get a takeaway for the Streaks, picking off an Odum pass at the Eagle 29. Aholding call pushed them back, but Watson hit Scott for a 24-yard gain to the Jenkins 17. Gayle then rattle off 12 yards on three runs with Watson taking the next two carries to get the touchdown and narrow the deficit to 1714 with 3:28 left on the clock. The defense then provided the stop it needed, forcing a three-and-out and getting the ball back to the offense with 2:14 left. But the last-ditch drive would not get much traction with a penalty, two incompletions and a quarterback sack negating the positive gains. s growing pains, head coach LaVaar Scott said. We have some positive plays and then shoot ourselves in the foot. e had a good effort tonight and its getting better, he continued. The offensive line did a great job making holes for A.J. and we almost pulled it out at the end. We gave ourselves a chance and thats all you can ask for Gayle finished the night with 24 carries for 150 yards as he capitalized on that work by the line. ell continue to grow Scott added. But we better grow up fast this week with Winter Haven coming up. The Streaks travel to face the Blue Devils Friday, Oct. 19. Continued from 1B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE A.J. Gayle totaled 150 yards rushing Friday night. yard pass to Damon Braswell to put them on Lake Placids 17 and got the homecoming crowd fired up. Anticipation soon faded, however, as Green Dragon Ricky Miller intercepted a Mason pass at the goal line to end the scoring threat. Miller would then catch a 41-yard pass from Walton to put Lake Placid on Avon Parks 27 as the third quarter ended. Miller would end the drive early in the fourthq uarter as he caught W altons third touchdown pass of the day from six yards out to give Lake Placid a commanding 26-0 lead. The Devils caught a break midway through the fourth as they forced Lake Placid t o punt the ball. On the low snap, the punters knee touched the ground, giving Avon Park the ball on Lake Placids 23yard line. The Devil offense then took advantage as Mason threw on a mini post route that resulted in a touchdown. Lake Placid responded on their next possession, driving 80 yards on eight straight running plays. The time-eating drive would culminate on a 21yard run around the right side by Walker. With the extra point, the scoring was complete for the night as Lake Placid took the 33-6 win. Avon Parks running game started out great as Tyler Johnson put up 26 yards on five carries before injuring his shoulder. A fter that, Avon Park ran a negative 8 yards on 11 carries. Avon Park freshman quarterback John Mason was 9 of 28 in passing for 95 yards and a touchdown, but also threw three interceptions. L ake Placid on the other hand was able to rack up 143 yards on the ground led b y Marquavian Copeland with 57 yard on 6 carries and McKenzie added another 51 yards on 8 carries. Coming into his own in his junior year in quarterback Robert Walton who completed 9 of 16 passes for 178 yard and 3 touchdowns with only one interception. Walton stated that he is feeling more comfortable in the position and that his receivers and offensive line did a great job for him. With any chances of playoffs for Avon Park wiped away in the loss after dropping to 2-6 for the season and 0-3 in the district, Avon Park head coach Lee Brown stated that they will be using the last three games of the year to prepare for next year and the future of the program. Basically, said Brown, the next three games will b e an audition for next year as we bring up some junior varsity Avon Park will be traveling to Sarasota this coming Friday to face district opponent Booker.

Seminar set for small businesses BUSINESS Personal Finance Jason Alderman By HOPE YEN A ssociated PressWASHINGTON Itll cost another penny to mail al etter next year. The cash-strapped U.S. Postal Service said Thursday that it will raise postage rates on Jan. 27,i ncluding a 1-cent increase in the cost of first-class mail to 46 cents. It also will introduce a new global foreverstamp, allowing customers to mailf irst-class letters anywhere in the world for one set price o f $1.10. Currently,the prices vary depending on the international destination,w ith letters to Canada and Mexico costing 85 cents. U nder the law,the post office cannot raise stamp prices more than the rate of inflation,or 2.6 percent, unless it gets special permis-s ion. The post office,which expects to lose a record $15 b illion this year,has asked Congress to give it new authority to raise prices by 5c ents,but lawmakers have failed to act. T he mail agency also will increase rates on its shipping services,such as prior-i ty mail,by an average of 4 percent. The post office,which is s truggling with debt and low cash flow,said the rate hikes w ere partly aimed at bringing in new revenue while maintaining its pricing advantage in the shipping business. Private companiess uch as UPS and FedEx, which offer similar shipping services,regularly adjust their prices. The post office lost $5.1 billion in fiscal 2011,mostly due to a 5.8 percent decline in revenue for firstclass mail. Financial results are expected to be even worse when final figures forf iscal 2012 are released next month. Earlier this year,it w as forced to default on two payments due to the Treasury totaling $11.1 bil-l ion for future retiree health benefits because it lacked s ufficient cash reserves. While the Postal Service has said it will continues eeking ways to cut costs, Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe has made clear that t he agency has little left it can do to bring in significant n ew revenue. After months of congressional delay,he said its now up to lawmakers to pass a postal fix when they return to Washingtona fter the November elections. The latest rate increase, for instance,will make only a small dent in the Postal Services losses,caused by the economic downturn, movement of mail to the Internet and a congressional requirement that the mail agency fund future retireem edical benefits years in advance. Earlier this year, t he mail agency floated a proposal to Congress aimed at increasing stamp prices to5 0 cents as a way to generate $1 billion in new reve nue. The Postal Service has also asked Congress toa llow it reduce mail delivery from six to five days a week and reduce its annual $5 bill ion payment for the future retiree health benefits. T he current 45-cent rate for first-class mail in the U.S. has been in effect since January. Since 2006,the Postal Service has nowi ncreased the price of the stamp five times,from 39 cents to 46 cents. Because stamps are now being issued as forever stamps,they will remain good for first-class postage. Mailing a letter to cost a penny more next year MCT The U.S. Postal Service will raise the rate for first-class mail to 46 cents on Jan. 27.

C M Y K Perhaps one of the most peculiar and eerie sights while walking in the woods is an owl peeringd own at you from above. Although mostly nocturnal,great horned owls may be viewed by the observant viewer in thed ay time. The thing that makes the owls stare so unusual is that it doesnt simply turn its eyes to catch a glimpse of you; itt urns its entire head. Owls have binocular vision, which allows them to find prey in low light. The eyes of the great horned owl are almost as large as those of a human,but are immobilew ithin their eye sockets. The neck can rotate 270 degrees without m oving its body. Having a huge winged creature turn its head to check you out can be a bit unnerv-i ng. Great horned owls are hunting m achines. Because of their vision, they hunt mainly at night and can spot prey from a great distance. In addition,the owls hearing may even surpass its vision. Owls havei ncredible depth perception and can hear in an up and down direction. T hey can certainly hear better than humans. The reason for this excellent hearing is the position of thee ars. The right ear is actually a bit higher on the skull and at a different angle than the left one. Therefore,by tilting or turning its head,an owl can pinpoint both the hori-z ontal and vertical direction of a sound. Even though owls are not known to be particularly fast fliers,(top speeda pproximately 40 mph) what they lack in speed, they make up for in silence. Because of the great horned owls softf eathers on the edges of its wings,it makes almost no noise when in flight. These mighty winged creatures use their talons,which have a crushing power of about 300p ounds per square inch,to capture their prey. Owls will perch on a h igh tree branch or snag and look for opportunities to swoop down on a meal. Once they see what they w ant,they dive down and grab the unsuspecting creature with their r azor sharp talons. At other times they fly close to the ground seeking prey and will even walk up to their target on occasion. One might think that with these h unting skills the great horned owl would be a finicky eater. Oddly e nough,these birds are opportunistic when it comes to dining choices. Prey varies greatly based ono pportunity. These large birds feed mainly on medium sized mammals such as rabbits,squirrels,rats,and even skunks. In fact,they are one of the few animals that feed ons kunks with regularity. They will also make a meal out of most any b ird,reptile,fish and insect if other prey is not available. Owls generally consume their p rey whole. However,they do not digest the fur,feather or bones of the creatures they eat. Owl pellets, which are coughed up bits of undigested remains,can be found nearr oosting areas. If examined,these pellets will reveal the owls recent d iet by inspecting the types of bones,fur or feathers within. Since owls roost high in trees, t he passer-by may not even be aware that they are being watched. They are well camouflaged with natural colored plumage and blend in well with their environment. Great horned owls are large birds,a bout 18 to 25 inches long and have a wingspan of about 36-60 inches. They appear to have ears, which are actually tufts of feathers and not ears at all. This is how theyg ot the name horned.They are donned with horizontal bars of gray and brown color variations. Great horned owls are heavy bodied and sport a white patch on theirt hroats. Their distinct face is usually light brown with a dark outline. Fortunately,great horned owls are extremely adaptable as far as habitat goes. They are not particu-l ar about the type of tree they make their homes in and are found from t he Arctic to South America. When young,these owls are fair game to many predators,but oncet hey reach adulthood,they have very few natural enemies. T hey have been known to fly into power lines,buildings and cars on occasion,which may be their greatest challenge with more and more natural lands being developeda nd urbanized.

C M Y K By TAMARA LUSH A ssociated PressS T. PETERSBURG In the mid-1920s,a young Salvador Dali was searching for his style. He painted a startlingly l ifelike basket of bread in a typical Renaissance form. He dabbled in cubism and painted in abstract black,white and gray. He also painted as cene in 1925 that he called Desnudo en el Agua(Nude in the Water),which gives an inkling of the surrealist genius to come. The painting is a close-up o f a womans shapely buttocks,and the unique pers pective reveals that Dali was looking at subjects and paintings in a whole new way as ay oung artist. s not doing an acad emic perspective,wryly notes Hank Hine,the director of the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg. That subtly erotic work, a long with 11 others,is on display at the Florida museu m until March 31,2013 in a show called The Royal Inheritance:Dalm WorksF rom the Spanish National Collection.The paintings, w hich span from 1918 to 1983,have never before been exhibited the United States. T he works are on loan from the National Collection of Modern Art in Spain. I s an exhibit that merges the vast permanent collection h oused in St. Petersburg which was amassed by one couple from Cleveland who befriended the artist with works owned by the SpanishK ingdom,which inherited Dalis estate after he died in 1989. For a visitor to the museum in St. Petersburg,it means a well-rounded and fun romp through Dalis vastb ody of work. Hine said the Florida m useum was able to acquire the Spanish loans in exchange for collaborating on another Dali exhibition,one at the Centre Pompidou inP aris on Nov. 21. The show will also be shown in Madrid starting April 23,2013. The world has a huge appetite for Dali,said Hine. Hes lastingly exciting. That appetite for his surrealist paintings,and the desire to see the striking new museum,has sparked an arts renaissance in St. Petersburg. The museum moved into a $36 million glass-and-concrete building along the citys waterfront on January 11, 2011,and has welcomed an average of 1,000 people a day since opening. The museums signature detail is a wave of glass paneling that undulates around the building a feature that was designed by architect Yann Weymouth,who had a hand in creating the glass p yramid at the Louvre in Paris. Theres also a helixl ike concrete staircase that stretches from the ticket counter to the third floor,anda cafe that serves smooth glasses of Spanish wine and t raditional olives. The biggest visitor demographic,said Hine,is the 18-3 0 age group which is interesting considering that St. Petersburg has been long k nown as a retirement haven. And 25 percent of the D alis visitors have never been to a museum before,he said. They dont feel like they have to know anything abouta rt to come here,said Hine. Dalis works are whimsical, and charming. In the new exhibit,one of Dalis paintings from late in his career 1983s Bed and Two Bedside TablesF erociously Attacking a Cello is a frenzy of s trange. Two paintings from 1975-76 titled Las Meninas are Dalis version of Velazquezs timeless classic 17th century portrait of ay oung Spanish princess and her entourage; Dali recreated them in 3-D stereoscopic view. (Hint:look at both, cross-eyed). T heres also a soft,tradit ional still life from 1918, painted when Dali was only 1 4. Thats the beauty of the museum and the exhibit:thev isitor learns that Dali wasnt just a master of shocking i mages. He was a well-rounded,curious and prolific artist who constantly questionede verything from religion to politics to his own memories. T he museums permanent c ollection,in the wing across from the temporary exhibit, h olds some of Dalis most important,and popular works. There are the drippingw atches,the marching ants, the sodomized pianos. D ali had no connection to St. Petersburg,and the museums collection of 100 of hisw orks ended up there almost by accident. The pieces were acquired by A. Reynolds and E leanor Morse of Ohio,much t o the surprise of their staid Midwestern friends and famil y,beginning with their first Dali purchase in 1942,a painting titled Daddy Longlegs of the EveningHope! T he couple became so enamored of Dali and his style that they eventually befriended the artist and his wife,Gala. Later they started looking for a home for the collection. A. Reynolds Morse was willing to donate the works for free to anyv enue that would keep them together,and a St. Petersbur g lawyer,Jim Martin,who read about the collection in a n ewspaper article,suggested S t. Pete. The original museum was built in 1980.If You Go...S ALVADOR DALI MUSEUM:The Royal Inheritance: Dalm Works From theS panish National Collection will on display through March 31,2013.

C M Y K Dear Abby: Several salesp ersons recently have ended our transaction by saying, Have a blessed day.The last two times it happened,I stopped and asked,What doy ou mean by that?Both of them stammered and didnt know what to say. One said,Im sort of religious.I replied that Im atheist. I dont think these folks realize what there saying. The next time it happens,I plan to respond by asking Zeus to bestow blessings upon them as well. Why do people feel they have a right to force their religious beliefs on customers? Annoyed Atheist in Texas Dear Annoyed Atheist: I seriously doubt they are trying to proselytize. The expression may be regional. Or the person may feel that blessedis synonymous with good,happor safe. If you wish to invoke the blessings of Zeus upon them, feel free to do so. But dont be surprised if you have a heck of a time getting waited on the next time you visit the establishment. Dear Abby: I have been in a relationship with ardfor two years. I love him and everything is great except for one thing. He refuses to compromise when it comes to his family functions. Hes very close to his extended family,and every time theres an event like a recent graduation party for a cousin,he never wants to leave. We were there for 10 hours,and I spent more than half of it either alone or talking to someone I didn't know well because Ward had ditched me. I have spoken to him about this,but hes unwilling to compromise. He says his family knows him as the social guyand expects him to stay late and be the life of the party. Its getting old that he makes me feel like the bad guy or a party-pooper when I want to leave. We have had big fights over this. Im not sure what to do. This has caused a rift in our relationship. Family-functioned Out in Minnesota Dear Family-functioned Out: When the next family function rolls around,go in separate cars. That way you can leave when you get tired,and Ward can stay as long as he wants. No harm, no foul,no fights. Dear Abby: I married my high school sweetheart at the age of 24. Five years later we divorced. My current husband,Gil,had a similar short first marriage. Although Gil and I have chosen not to divulge any i nformation to our two children about our previous marriages,my sister thinks we should tell them everything because they may find outl ater in life and be disappointed they didnt hear it from us. She has said on many occasions that we are being dishonest. That is certainly not our intention. We truly believe theres no reason to bring up a past that has no benefit in their lives. Your advice is badly needed because I see my relationship with my sister spiraling in a downward direction. I love her,but I dont agree with her opinion. Lives in the Present Dear Lives in the Present: I see no reason to make a grand announcementto your children,but with the rate at which marriages fail in this country,I also see no reason to keep this a deep,dark secret. If the subject of what makes a successful marriage comes up when your children are old enough,and you think it could be helpful to them, you might be able to impart some important life lessons if you mention the past. Having been married once p reviously isnt a shameful secret,and it should not be treated like one. Write Dear Abby at w ww.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 6 9440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.

Aries, Taurus have a lot going on around them this week It was dreary. An overcast skyk ept the sun from peeking through the clouds. Rain had fallen intermittently for sev-e ral days. It was neither a day for picture taking or hiking. And,yet,we seto ut to do both,working with what wed been given. As we walked along,the pretty colors of fall hung like washed out laundry ona line with some blown upon the ground premat urely.And then we came upon a favorite,yet forgotten spot. It had been somet ime since we visited this place in Georgia. All at o nce,I felt welcomed. It didnt matter that rain was threatening our walk or that the colors of fall we had hoped to capture hada lready diminished. Here was a place of quiet that I l oved. Roughhewn posts festooned with ivy created af ence on either side beckoning me to walk upon the l eaves and let them crunch beneath my feet. Slow down,dont hurry,b reathed the message to my soul. I stopped and looked all a round me and let the moments idealness wash o ver me. Up ahead was a gazebo-like pavilion also constructed of rustic wood with benches of the same where I could sit for aw hile and contemplate Gods creation. I thought of what it must be like at the height of thes pring season when all the Rhododendrons are in bloom. I thought of thec risper days of autumn defined by exquisite color. And then I imagined the beauty of e verything cloaked in winter white. Whatever the season, Gods beauty is there if we desire to see it. Psalm 27 4:b-5,NKJV reminds us oft his when it says,One thing I have desired of the L ord,that will I seekto behold the beauty of the LordFor in the time oft rouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; in the secret p lace of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock. As we moved along,my husband Ken snapped pic-t ures here and therenot particularly hopeful; but, u ndaunted nonetheless. At the waters edge of a large lake,we could see them ountains shrouded in grey clouds. Take a picture,please. Even though its not bright, I still want to have thism emory.

C M Y K LIVING B SE CTION News-Sun Sunday, October 14, 2012 BYMEGANK COLLINSStylegirlfriend.comve never met anyone who enjoys jeans shopping,have you? Whether youre a man or a woman,short or tall,big or small,hunting for denim that both fits you and you like can be a notoriously discouraging process. Before you can even make it into the fitting room with its less-than-flattering lights,you have to sift through a table of 10 styles in 20 different washes. Where do you even start? After a spin in front of the fitting room funhouse mirrors,you inevitably leave the storee mpty-handed and wondering if Lady Gaga going pants-less might spark a t rend you can get in on. So how can you find jeans that will take you from the workplace to the weekend? Below youll find a few tips on finding the perfect-fitting pair of jeans for you without trying to change the size of your waistband,or the length of your inseam.STYLEA straight leg jean is the most classic style to wear at work and at play for both men and women. At the office,a straight leg pair of denim can be dressed up with a blazer or sport coat, and on the weekends,dressed down with a pair of flats or sneakers. Men,leave the bootcut jeans to cowboys,and the skinny jeans to rock stars. Women,while you have a seemingly endless array of denim styles to choose from,remember that fashion trends will come and go. Having a pair of jeans in your closet thats always on-trend will save you time and money in the long run. At the store,let the tags descriptions guide you. Look for labels that read slimor straight.Avoid classicor relaxedfits at all costs. The latter will be roomy and,while comfortable,totally unflattering and too casual to wear with anything but a hooded sweatshirt and the sneakers you rake leaves in. Straight leg jeans should be the same width from your knee down to your ankle. Before you try on a style, fold the bottom hem up to the knee they should be the same size across. If you go for a slim fit,the jeans will taper slightly in at the knee downwards.FITIts tempting to size up in denim, especially for women who may be selfconscious about their size,or men who want their jeans to fit like sweatpants. Try to resist. The most figure-flattering clothes are the ones that skim your body. Not suction to it. Not billow away from it. A good-fitting pair of denim will hug your leg closely,while still allowing for a normal range of movement. You probably wont be able to join in a game of pick-up basketball,but you should be able to sit,stand and walk comfortably. A t the store,sit down in the fitting room to make sure the jeans youve selected arent too tight across the hips and waist. Cross your legs. Prop one leg up on a bench or chair. Bend over to pick something up off the floor. If you can pull these moves off without splitting your pants,youre good to go.COLORIf you only buy one new pair of jeans this year,make them dark blue. Its the most dressed-upwash of all t he denim washes. At the store,look for a deep,saturated blue thats almost navy. Jeans in this shade will look just as good with a blazer and dress shirt at the office,as they will on the weekend in a T-shirt and sneakers. If youre still not sure what to look for,keep your eyes peeled for words like inkor indigo there good indicators of a dark wash. Avoid shiny fabrics,superfluous patches and any whiskering (lighter streaks on creases) or fading. Jeans that are pre-fabwith details like these go out of style more quickly and arent appropriate for the office. WAISTGo for a medium rise nothing too highor low-cut. For men and women on the taller side,you may need to go into higher numbers. Try on a few pairs until you find a size and style you can comfortably button closed,and that dont produce the dreaded muffin top effect. Remember,a proper fit at the waist means you wont need a belt to keep them up,and you wont be spilling over the sides.WEIGHTLook for heavy-weight and midweight fabrics. Jeans that seem light wont last very long,as thell start to break down with repeated washings. Dont be afraid of denim that feels rough or stiff; these jeans will soften up with wear and last much longer without rips,fading or tears. CLOSUREZip fly or button closure? A question old as time (or at least,since 1873, when Levi Strauss patented the first pair of blue jeans),but with a very personal answer.Theres no right or wrong answer; just wear what feels best to you.LENGTHIdeally,a woman will own her favorite pair of jeans in two different lengths one to wear with heels,and the other to wear with flats. If this isnt possible,invest in hem tape to quickly shorten or let out your jeans. The length of a mans jeans is more uniform. Your jeans should sit on your shoe or just below it no bulging, shar-pei-like wrinkles pooling at your ankles. THE PERFECT FITDespite or perhaps,because of the vast array of denim brands, styles and colors on the market today, its totally normal to experience fit issues in even your favorite pair of jeans. If youve found pants that are almost-but-not-quite perfect,dont be afraid to take them to the tailor. For women,a gap at the back of jeans can occur when your jeans fit properly in the hips and seat,but are too big at the waist. This can easily be addressed by a skilled tailor,and will help you feel more confident and covered! in your jeans. For men,the issue generally is length. You can always roll the cuff of pants that are too long,but splurging o n a tailor to shorten the hem is worth the extra money.Youll have a pair of jeans that fits you just so and hits at just the right point.
