C M Y K Bob Bagosy will always remember the day his 19year-old son, Tommy, toldh im he was joining the United States Marine Corps. I said OK, lets talk about this, Bob, who was living in Delaware, recalled. W hen Bob said he wanted to talk, he meant it. Not only w ould he drive down to Florida, where Tommy was living, but the father and son w ould also make two key stops during a subsequent drive up the east coast. The first was South Carolinas Parris Island, where thou-s ands of Marine recruits endure boot camp each year. I dropped him off and left for an hour, Bob said. He got back in the car ands aid I can do this. Before endorsing T ommys decision, Bob had something else to show him. The second stop was Arlington National Cemetery, because I wanted him to see the other half of the military, Bob said. A fter seeing the majestic white headstones that mark the hallowed resting spots of so many American heroes, Tommy turned to his father. If I die, I want to have the biggest tombstone available, the teenager said. ommy, you wont get any bigger than Arlington, his dad replied. I n 2006, Sgt. Tommy Bagosy deployed to Iraq, where he helped find enemy improvised explosive devices (IEDsb esieged city of Fallujah. It was a tough deployment. best friend took his patrol one night, Bob said. The guy hit an IED andd ied. ommy blamed himself a nd said it should have been him. D uring their first visit after Sgt. Bagosys return, the Marines parents realized why their sons wife, Katie, was insisting that Iraqs hor-r ors had changed her husband. He turned to me in a restaurant and said you know dad, I killed peopleo ver there, Bob said. Tommy was suffering from headaches, flashbacks, and insomnia. According to his father, traumatic brain injury (TBI matic stress (PTS Iraq deployment caused the symptoms. The Marine was p rescribed medication and t ried to live a normal life w ith his wife and two children. In 2009, Tommy deployed to Afghanistan after renewing his military contract. While admiring his sons bravery, Bob was also concerned about the lingering effects of TBI and PTS. ButT ommy served honorably in A fghanistan, particularly while taking enemy fire during an ambush. He got his second comb at action ribbon for that, B ob said. He never mentioned a word about it. Not long after Tommys November 2009 return, Bob learned his son was againo verwhelmed by violent h eadaches and nightmares, prompting more psychological treatment. When Tommy called home on May 9, 2010, the Marine was at at ragic crossroads. He was in absolute tears and told his mother he didnt know what was going on,B ob said. He was all jumbled up in his head. T he next day, Sgt.

Zwayer, Tax Collector for Highlands County, has earned a special designation for excellence in the field of financial operations. Ajudging panel performed a detailed review of the Tax Collectors financial records, practices and use of technology in considering Zwayer for the honor. The Legacy Award is one of the highest achievements the Florida Tax Collectors Association can award a local Tax Collector, said FTCAPresident Maloy of Leon County. The judging process was arduous and included a detailed review of the financial functions of the Tax Collectors Office. I am very proud to say that Honorable Zwayer has earned the designation. He represents the very top echelon of elected officials. Last year, Zwayer earned the Excellence in Financial Operations Award after demonstrating proficiency in four areas of expertise: Innovation & Automation; a Perfect Annual Audit Report; Customer Focus; and Budgeting. For the 2012 Legacy Award, Zwayer demonstrated that the office had further enhanced its financial operations. Afive-person judging panel made up of government financial executives from throughout Florida reviewed the Tax Collectors processes as related to the four areas of competency. The citizens of Highlands County can be very proud of Honorable Zwayer for the award-winning manner in which he operates the Tax Collectors Office, Maloy said. The panelists review of his office went far and above reviewing his perfect audit report. The review included methods utilized by Honorable Zwayer to deliver service to the people he serves and consideration of the technological innovations he has developed and put into place. Florida Tax Collectors collect and distribute over $27 billion in local public funds each year. Tax Collectors carry out State of Florida work at the local level on behalf of Floridas citizens.

The city has been awarded a $101,000 grant from theD epartment of Environmental Protection to be used for analysis and evaluation in planning upgrades to the citys wastewater treatment system. A von Park has received similar FDEPgrants in the past, Deleon said. A ctual improvements, based on this preliminary survey, could be funded through grants or low-interest loan funding, Deleon said. While a particular project has not y et been chosen, he added there are four possibilities. One idea is to reclaim water. This treatment process converts regular wastewater to irrigation-q uality water. Other ideas are to buy additional land to expand the treatment plants p ercolation system, make improvements in water transmission or rehabbing the master lift sta-t ion. Water reclamation is the leading choice because in April 2012 Gov. Rick Scott signedl egislation forbidding water management districts from forcing utilities or municipalities to sell watert hey had treated. The goal is to encourage investment in reclamation plants so the treated water can be used for commercial and residential irrigation.T he large purpose is to save water. Whatever the city decides, it has a strict timeline to follow. The completed application must be fully executed and signed within2 10 days of the FDEPs public hearing of Oct. 10, (Feb. 2, 2013The fully executed agreement is dueM ay 8, 2013. If the deadlines are not met, the city loses the grant. Once the projects planning is complete, Robert Holmden, chief oft he FDEPs Bureau of Water Facilities Funding, told the city it may apply for a grant to fund building the plant, but he warned that there is no guarantee of getting ac onstruction grant.

Call 314-9876 B y BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING There have been a bunch of the nationst op anglers in Highlands County this week. Teams c ompeting in a new television series entitled Major League Fishing descended on LakeI stokpoga this past weekend in search of points and airt ime. Highlands County reportedly is one of the surprise l ocations used as one of variables which are part of the show. Major League Fishing is a combination of an angling competition and ar eality series which currently is in its second season. In addition to the short notice on each particular location, anglers are given no practiced ays, there are computer generated real time leaderboards o n each boat and there is no limit on the number of fishw eighed. s the better fisherman? The guy who catches one 20-pound bass, or the one who catches four 5pounders? asked RandyC oleman, spokesman for MLF. C oleman explained the program is a fishing competition interwoven with storiesf rom within two professional groups, each with a similar g oal: to present the sport of competitive professional bass fishing in a way that the v iewing public has never seen before. He complimented Highlands County for what he termed extraordinary coop-e ration and general niceness. The experience we have had here has been just phenomenal, he said. Coleman said that the area a lready has had exposure to a s who of professional a nglers, most of whom had never had even heard of LakeI stokpoga. e have two Florida anglers whod heard of the p lace but most of these guys are getting a taste of a new world this week and theyree njoying the heck out of it, Coleman said. O ne of the up-sides of being a stop on the tour is that MLF wants to make the locat ion look good, something that is beneficial both to Highlands County and to the show. Additionally, the goal is to drive traffic to the areaf rom those who view the program. In addition to thanking the county, Coleman said the production had received supportf rom the Florida Wildlife Conservation Commission. I think the FWC likes what we are doing from ac onservation standpoint, he said. As part of the deal, H ighlands County will receive promotional television spots that will be airedd uring the program. Professional angler Boyd D uckett, who helped originate the series, will be one of the stars of Highlands C ountys commercial message. One of the features here is your wonderful golf courses. I dont know if they intendedf or me to land a bass with a nine iron or kill one with one of my swings, he joked. The Highlands County stop on the tour is slated to bes hown on the Outdoor Channel sometime during the s econd quarter of next year. An extended broadcast of thep rogram also will be offered on the Internet. Major League Fishing comes to Istokpoga Show to air on Outdoor Channel next year By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY firstname.lastname@example.orgAVON PARK Monday the Avon Park Chamber of Commerce will hold a candidate forum at the city council chambers on Pine Street. Laura Wade, director of the chamber, will be moderating the event, and Steve Maxwell will act as official timer. Questions were solicited in advance and will be read to the candidates. Submissions came from business owners, chamber members, and even from some of the candidates themselves. Each candidate will have to answer every question asked. Candidates will take turns answering first. Wade said the forum begins at 6 p.m. and is expected to last until 7:30 p.m. There will probably be about eight or 10 questions asked depending on the time, Wade said. Some questions will be restricted to one minute answers, others to two minutes. Each candidate has two minutes at the end to make a closing statement. Wade hopes for a large turnout. The election is one week and a day from Monday. The municipal election is non-artisan. Three seats are in contention. Five candidates are running for them. The top three vote getters are elected to the council. Brenda Gray, Terry Heston and Paul Miller are the incumbents. Garrett Anderson and Jim Bernard are the two challengers. AP Chamber candidate forum set for Monday Associated PressTALLAHASSEE Supporters of three Florida Supreme Court justices seeking up-or-down retention votes on Nov. 6 say theyre now less worried about losing due to public indifference. They had feared a repeat of what happened in Iowa two years ago. Thats when a late infusion of money helped defeat three Iowa justices over a 2009 ruling that legalized same-sex marriage in that state. Former state Sen. Alex Villalobos said fears of such a stealth attack eased after Sept. 21. Thats when the Florida Republican Party came out in opposition to the justices. Villalobos newspaper editorial boards that once ignored the issue began criticizing the GOPfor its stance while lawyers and others began writing checks and volunteering to help the justices. Justices supporters say fears are easing
C M Y K When it comes to igniting an inferno,Molotov c ocktails have nothing on race.Recently,a firestorm blazed after the state Board of Education revealed new math and reading targets that u se race to set student performance goals. B y 2018,the board expects 74 percent of black students a nd 81 percent of Hispanic students to be grade-level r eaders. Thats far short of t he 88 percent of white stud ents and 90 percent of Asian s tudents the board counts on h itting that benchmark. Likewise,math proficiency g oals are pegged to race. Board officials insist d iverse goals simply a cknowledge that because of m yriad socio-economic factors students come to school d ifferently equipped. Critics rightly consider s tratified targets insulting a move that channels what f ormer President George W. Bush famously called the the soft bigotry of low expectations. Florida was among 33 states and the District of Columbia granted exemp-t ions from the No Child Left Behind law to set their own accountability goals. Just as haveVirginia and Washington,D.C.,the Sunshine States taking heatf or setting different racebased interim goals. As A ndrew Rotherham of the nonprofit Bellwether Education Partners correctlyo bserved in a recent Washington Post op-ed,such m oves send a message to students of together and unequal. Originally under NCLB, states tracked groups,but setb lanket goals. Feeling the heat,Rick S cott,Floridas education governor,stopped,dropped, and rolled away from the odi-o us policy. He wisely called for more f ocused efforts to lift every student to success. The plan, he said,did not clearly artic-u late our shared commitment to fully close that achievem ent gap for all students, regardless of race,geography,gender or other circumstance. In the boards defense, C hairman Gary Chartrand argues that we have to acknowledge that there are different starting points among groups of students today. T rue,an inescapable reality that demands considerat ion. Not a fiat for goals steeped in racial fatalism. A wiser plan would i nvolve setting common targets that assume minority and p oor students can pass state tests at the same rates as otherswhile providing substantially more support to these students and theirs chools,Rotherham noted. What a concept:fortifying s tudents who need help to speed their progress rather than stigmatizing them. I n its march to close the racial gap,the board would b e wise to walk back from race-based targets. Goals that suggest to m inority students that the s tate,while rooting for them, i snt confident they can scale t he mountaintop alongside t heir peers. An editorial from the Orlando Sentinel.

Thats five-zero-zero, a s in,half a millennium. When you consider that the United States,at 236 years of age and counting, is less than half that,this becomes a birthday that needs a unique celebration. Of all the episodes within Floridas five centuries,p erhaps the most breathtaking is a walk taken by a pair of Spanish explorers, including one Alvar Nunez, whom his friends teasingly called Cabeza de Vaca. A lvars ship sailed from Cuba and landed near T ampa Bay,only six years into Floridas history. There were problems,their ships wrecked,and so he a nd a companion had to s urvive by walking walking north to what is now Tallahassee,and then w est,to Mexico. They walked,from Tampa to Mexico. Although the premise is fantastic,it is historically true,and Alvar wrote a book about it,Adventures i n the Unknown Interior of A merica,which is still in print. Florida is the stagecenter star of his story. F or next years 500th,an i ntrepid way to cheer, toast,honor,or just learn more about Florida,is tod raw inspiration from the way Alvar experienced our Great American Peninsula. Are you active and a dventurous? Parts of A lvars voyage read like the script of an island surv ival show. He ran headl ong through hardwood forests,he fished with his hands in marshes,he waded the ApalachicolaR iver,near Chattahoochee. Have you not yet camped in Floridas statep arks? Alvar did,more or l ess,spending score upon score of evenings,both humid and cool,sleeping under Florida stars,roasti ng clams over,sometime s, big bonfires and,othert imes,small pits of softly glowing coals. Or have you ever wondered what waits to be discovered in Floridas breadbox,that rectangleo f territory north of Orlando,south of G ainesville,and inland from Tampa and Daytona? This is a swath of shim-m ering lakes,curious black bears,pistachio green m osses,and roiling black bass,with much of the landscape left just as it was when Alvar passed through. I f none of these experiences sound quite right, p erhaps you are a people person. Alvar was. Along his walk he met hundreds,m aybe thousands,of original Floridians. Friendly a nd unfriendly,workers and chiefs alike,meat eaters and fish eaters,ands urely,clumsy but lovable types with leftover berry juice on their buckskins.

Everything I have heard and readm she is a remarkable person honest,hard working,familiar with the community. It appears Mr. Elwell would rather go for a nation-wide search. Waste taxpayers funds. Then he wants to have a visioning session. I have no idea what that is and I do not intend to waste any time finding out. Mr. Ewell is a big man. It is time to grow up. Earn the respect and trust that your constituents elected you to do. You may think it is cute to nit-pick and visionize. Thank goodness that we have at least four more sensible commissioners on the board. Take my advise,grow up and grow into the position that your constituents expect of you. Joseph J. Oros. SebringA drain in bay head can cause low lake levelsEditor: In a recent editorial,I read that sometimes we can benefit from the knowledge of past generations. A number of years ago,my late father,Ross Johnson,who loved to fish Little and Big Lake Jackson, became perturbed because the water levels dropped lower than what he felt the lack of rain fall would cause. The water moccasins swimming between his legs or the gators watching him from a distance did not defer his wade fishing in Big Lake,but when he could no longer get his boat under the bridge into Little Lake Jackson,it spurred him into action. My dad noticed the bay head that leaves Little Lake Jackson and flows pretty much concurrently with Jackson Creek. It goes behind the Pizza Hut and winds all the way past Skipper Road and areas below.At that time,there was a peat mining company that had dug a tremendous hole from which they had dug out the peat. In order to be able to do this,they were pretty much 24-7 pumping water from that hole into Jackson Creek through a very large conduit. Now anybody who has ever had a leak in their roof knows that once water finds a path,the flow increases quickly. Bay heads can transport very large amounts of water through seepage and is exactly what was happening to the two lakes. After discovering what was causing the lake level problem,my dad had a hard time getting anyone to do anything about it. Eventually though,the pumping ceased. Today,what was a big hole in the ground is now a nice gated community on a fairly good-sized lake. Can you imagine how much the water level on Lake Jackson and Little Lake Jackson would rise if you poured that lake back into the Jackson lakes? I dont know if anyone is now doing any kind of operation that would drain that bay head,but if they are,the water level on the lakes would come back up some with good rain fall,but not like it should. That bay head will have to resaturate itself and that takes a good bit of time and rains. Incidentally,I hope theres a nice lake in Heaven and if there is, I know who is out there fishing on it today. Larry Ross Johnson SebringIs statistic true, or a scare tactic?Editor: I refer you to the Sunday,Oct. 14 edition of the News-Sun,page 5b. Thereon is an advertisement that I think requires verification.I know this is election time and we the people are being fed all kinds of things for facts that are not facts. However,when a private organization stretches the truth this much they should correct their wording.Either that,or point out to me where my misinterpretation rests. According to that ad,24 persons a day die from a skin cancer in Highlands County. Is this true or is it a scare tactic? Jim White SebringCommon sense should have been usedEditor: This letter is about the young man who dyed his hair pink to support his family and the month for fighting cancer and bringing awareness to its cause and the principal who brought down the book on him,so to speak. I find it quite ironic that the principal stated that although this is a rule he broke,he allowed exceptions to it in allowing small strands of pink to be worn by others in the school. This is reverse discrimination and the principal is wrong to make the child an example when the boy was doing the absolute right thing in supporting his family,supporting his community and supporting the awareness of the scourge of cancer to other kids around him ... not to mention making them aware that this has affected his own family and life. What better way to bend a rule than for the right reasons. This is one such time that the principal seems to have overlooked in his zealous stance. Rules are not laws and this child had no intentions of using this act to interrupt classes or the school,but to be a positive force in an issue that many are fighting against in our own communities and family.A simple word by the principal over the loud speaker down-playing the positive act by this child to the other students addressing the one time issue for a good cause would have been the sane thing to do and would have made this a win-win situation for all involved. It seems common sense was not had on the part of the administration on that day.And to Michael Doty and his family personally, Thank you for standing up to cancer,with your family and for your community. Gingerlee Mitchellindo SebringFocus on the good, not the bad possibilitiesEditor: I recently read an editorial about Swamp Hammock that went through all of the badthings that will happen when they open. Last time I checked no one can tell what the future will hold. This is a group who is willing to put theirself on the line to bring new activities to Sebring. This will help keep money in our community and promote economic growth. In a time of economic downslide that we have been in over the last few years,we should commend these innovators not condemn them for something that mighthappen. Bad things happen every day in all kinds of communities,big and small,rich and poor,rual and urban. Lets try to promote the good things that happen and hopefully the badthings will become less prevelent.

CO MMUNITYBR IEFS Felon Sweep sees 143 arrests in county B enton Continued from page 1A last two years. As a commissioner,we have to know a little about a l ot of stuff. Everything comes to us. Its humbling. After making it clear he r espects county staff they do an awesome job, h e said Harris added one challenge has been to help employees change work h abits or processes. When he asks why something is done a certain way, hes told,because we always have. H arris said the county has been a pretty good steward of tax money. Wve tried to do whats best for the county. Theresa lot more to do,absolutely. A continuing challenge, he said,is the budget. I do not see a rise in ad valorem taxes,and of our $118 million budget only about $18 million is under our (the commissions)c ontrol. Wre asking department heads to cut another 10 percent. Thats hard to do. Its very,very difficult. Next year were going to look at the constitutional officers to see if they can help us. Harris said the county will have to make more cuts next year. Already money allotted to employee and commissioner training,travel expenses including mileage and the cost of certifications has been cut off,and no money goes to offset phone costs to commissioners. The task is not easy, Harris said. For one thing, the commission is leery about cutting jobs. We dont want to add to unemp loyment,Harris said. The commission is pretty much agreed,he added,that it can no longer provide funding to non-profits,even those who provide a recogn ized benefit to county resi dents. For Harris,the issue is about giving tax dollars ton on-government organizations. When it comes to charity,Harris said,It should be an individuald ecision. In terms of land ownership and free enterprise, Harris said,e had 104 a cres taken from us without compensation,so Im a big proponent of private property rights. H e added that he supported the Swamp Hammock proposed outd oor recreation club. Its his,(Gabe Whites) way to give back,Harris said. White,a retired profess ional baseball played who last pitched for the New York Yankees,is one of the partners in the project.

C M Y K m ore than previous administrator Rick Helms. When reminded that there would be o ne week deducted each year to a total of 10 weeks, Elwell responded that the previous two administrators didnt last buttwo years after glowingr ecommendations for the job. Further, Elwell said his conversations with Fisher indicated that she wished to retire infive orsix years. C ommissioner Barbara Stewart asked Fisher if that w as true. I will be eligible for r etirement in five years, Fisher replied. County Attorney Ross Macbeth then added that Fisher would not be entitledt o the severance package unless she was terminated without cause as was the case with the two previous administrators. E lwell then suggested commissioners consider a 90day severance package combined with a provision thatthe termination of the county administrator require a super-majority at least f our of the five votes on the commission. Aconsensusof commiss ioners then agreed they didt like Elwells suggestion. F ishers salary and benefit package wasbumped to$116,000 just 18 months ago when she became the assistant county administra-t or. Elwell asked other commissioners if they might consider just a 10 percent raise. Thatwould have started her at $128,000 annually versus the proposed $139,000 including $5,000 in deferred compensation. T he suggestion camewith an eye toward phasing in increases over the next few y ears based on performance. e paid our last administ rator $135,000, commissioner Barbara Stewart said. After looking at Ms. Fishers credentials, I think $134,000 is reasonable. C ommissioner Greg Harris was quick to agree with commissioner Ron Handley indicating he was good with the way it was written. Elwells final suggestion that the contract reference her performance of the dutiesd etailed in the job description also was shot down, with Stewart laughing at the idea t hat the CEO of the county as she put it, would even n eed a a job description. Before casting the lone negative vote to name Fisher as county administrator, Elwell emphasized his prob-l em was not withher ability to do the jobbut in trying to find a balance between fairly compensating the administrator and protecting taxpayer dollars.

C M Y K B y MICHAELLIEDTKE APTechnology WriterSAN FRANCISCO M icrosoft CEO Steve Ballmer cant afford to be wrong about Windows 8. On Thursday in New York, Microsoft will unveil a dra-m atic overhaul of its ubiquitous Windows operating system. If it flops, the failure will reinforce perceptions that Microsoft is falling behind competitors such asA pple, Google and Amazon as its stranglehold on persona l computers becomes less relevant in an era of smartphones, tablets and otherm obile devices. If Ballmer is right, W indows 8 will prove that the worlds largest software maker still has the technological chops and marketing muscle to shape the future ofc omputing. This is going to be his d efining moment, said technology industry analyst Patrick Moorhead of MoorI nsights & Strategy. Ballmers legacy will be l ooked at as what he did or didnt do with Windows 8. If Windows 8 is not a success,a lot of people will be looking for Microsoft to make a change at the CEO level. W indows 8 is designed to run on PCs and tablet comp uters, heralding the biggest change to the industrys dominant operating system in at least 17 years. It also marks the first time thatM icrosoft has made touchscreen control the top priority, though the system can still be switched into the familiar desktop mode that allows for control by keyboard and mouse. B allmer sees Windows 8 as the catalyst for a new era a t Microsoft. He wants the operating system to ensure the company plays an integral role on all the important screens in peoples lives P Cs, smartphones, tablets and televisions. e are trying to re-imagine the world from the ground up with Windows 8,B allmer told The Seattle Times. He declined to be interviewed for this story. Early reaction has been mixed. Some reviewers like the way the system greets users with a mosaic of tiles displaying applications instead of relying on the desktop icons that served as the welcome mat for years. Critics say its a confusing jumble that will frustrate users accustomed to the older versions, particularly when they switch to desktop mode and dont see the familiar start button and menu. Windows 8 will hit the market backed by an estimated $1 billion marketing campaign. The advertising frenzy is just one measure of how important Windows 8 is to Microsofts future. Ballmers margin for error is slim after being consistently outpaced by Apple and Google in his nearly 13 years as CEO. During his tenure, Microsofts stock has lost nearly half its value, wiping out more than $200 billion in shareholder wealth. But the companys board hasnt expressed any public dissatisfaction with Ballmer, who is Microsofts secondlargest shareholder with a 4 percent stake worth $9 billion. Only his good friend and predecessor, Microsoft founder Bill Gates, owns more of the companys stock. Gates has a 5.5 percent stake. Since Ballmer succeeded Gates as CEO in January 2000, Microsofts annual revenue has nearly quadrupled to $74 billion and expanded into lucrative newt erritory with its popular Xbox 360 video game cons ole, which has given the company a platform for delivering services to televi-s ion sets. But Microsoft has been slow to respond to technology shifts and has made s ome costly missteps trying to catch up. S ome of the best-known blunders include the companys iPod clone, the Zune, and its $6.3 billion acquisition of Internet ad servicea Quantive. Ballmer, 56, has spent most of his life at Microsoft. He was attending Stanford Universitys graduate school of business in 1980 when Gates, a former classmate atH arvard University, persuaded him to drop out and b ecome one of the startups first 30 employees. He brought more business savvy to the operation just as the company began providing ano perating system for IBM Corp.s first personal computer. Just two weeks before Ballmer took over,M icrosofts stock reached its peak price. The dot-com bust quickly deflated that market value, and the company became locked in antitrust battles in the U.S. and Europe that distracted management for years. The biggest question hovering over Windows 8: Is it innovative and elegant enough to lure consumers who are increasingly fond of smartphones, tablets and other sleek gadgets? Those mobile devices have been setting industry standards while Microsoft engineers have spent two years designing a new operating system. And Windows 8 must address not only the upheaval in the computing market since Windows 7 came out in 2009, but also have the flexibility to adjust to future shifts in technology before Microsoft releases another version in two or three years. It doesnt seem like Microsoft is really pushing consumers into the future with Windows 8, said Forrester Research analyst Sarah Rotman Epps. What Microsoft has done is like buying a pair of shoes for a kid. The shoes may fit exactly right today, but those shoes probably wont fit six months from now Previous versions of Windows and other Microsoft products such as Office are so deeply embedded in companies and government agencies that Microsoft is still assured a steady stream of revenue from that segment of the market. That loyal base ofc ustomers is one of the reasons that Microsoft is e xpected to earn $25 billion on revenue of $80 billion in its current fiscal year endingn ext June. This isnt a company that is on the edge of extinction, l ike some people would have you think, said BGC F inancial analyst Colin Gillis. What we are seeing with Windows 8 is classic Microsoft. They let the (technology) market lead and thent hey follow But investors want to see Microsoft do something more. The nagging fear on Wall Street is that the PC industry is past its prime and heading into a graduald ecline that will pull down Microsoft, too. T he signs of decay have been proliferating since Apple released the iPad in 2010, hatching a tablet computer market that has com-b ined with an already vibrant smartphone market to siphon away technology spending that used to go toward the latest PCs. W orldwide PC sales year are expected to decline this year for the first time since 2001, according to the research firm ISH iSuppli. Its a drop of just 1 percent, but it underscores a troubling trend that has been hurting Microsoft. The shift to mobile devices has whittled Microsofts worldwide share of the computing device market from 67 percent in 2008 to about 30 percent today, estimates Forrester Research analyst Frank Gillett. Thanks to its Android software for phones and tablets, Google is now the leader with a 40 percent share of the computing device market. Apple stands at 20 percent. Analysts dont expect Microsofts corporate and government customers to immediately embrace the new system, no matter how much its hyped. About half of this traditionally cautious group of customers still havent upgraded to Windows 7. Most analysts expect companies and government to hold off on switching to Windows 8 for at least another year. Ballmer hopes to accelerate the changeover by making Microsofts Office software suite more compelling, with the help of two major acquisitions. Microsoft bought the video chat service Skype for $8.5 billion last year and in June agreed to pay $1.2 billion for Yammer, a service the builds social networking services within companies. Both are expected to become key features within Office to make ite asier for workers to connect and collaborate with their p eers and customers. Ballmer also has won praise from analysts fors triking potentially fruitful partnerships with Yahoo Inc. and Nokia. Microsoft now p rovides Yahoo with much of the same technology that r uns its Bing search engine. The Yahoo deal provides Microsoft with 12 percent of the revenue from the ads shown alongside searchr esults on Yahoos website. The Nokia alliance ensured Windows 8 would be the operating system on that companys latest line of smartphones, a potentially valuable platform if Nokia is able to regain some of the market share it has lost inm obile phones during the past five years. (Microsoft has also joined with The Associated Press to use APcontent in Windows8 news applications.) But none of that has yet restored the luster Microsoft had on Wall Street when Gates was in charge. Ballmers initially dism issed emerging threats from Google and Apple. He c onsistently pooh-poohed Google as a one-trick company during its early yearsa nd in 2007 declared: No chance that the iPhone is g oing to get any significant market share. Those were some of his biggest mistakes, detractors say. Google quickly madei mportant inroads in Internet video, online maps, email a nd mobile computing and contributed to the damage that the iPhone and iPadh ave done to Microsoft and its partners in the PC market. A pples meteoric rise has been especially painful for Microsoft. When Steve Jobsr eturned to run Apple in 1997, the company was so bad off that it needed a $150 m illion infusion from Microsoft to stay afloat. N ow Apple has a market value of $570 billion more than double Microsofts $250 billion. On Tuesday, Apple got a c hance to upstage Microsoft when CEO Tim Cook showed off the iPad Mini, a smaller and less expensive version of its top-selling tablet.

BUSINESS Windows 8: Make-or-break moment for Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer N EWYORK (APA two-year prison sentence for insider trading at the height of the 2008 economic crisis, by a man whow as once one of the nations most respected business executives, is a fifth of the 10 years requested by the government and well below sen-t encing guidelines. Now, some experts are questioni ng whether its fair. Judge Jed Rakoff described the sentence and$ 5 million fine given to former Goldman Sachs and P rocter & Gamble Co. board member Rajat Gupta, 63, on Wednesday as sufficient to deter others and properly punish Gupta. At the same time, no one really knows how m uch jail time is necessary to materially deter insider trading; but common senses uggests that most business executives fear even a m odest prison term to a degree that more hardened types might not. Thus, ar elatively modest prison term should be sufficient, but not more than necess aryfor this purpose, Rakoff said. C hicago attorney Andrew Stoltmann said the sentence should have been closer to the 10 years prosecutors had recommendedb ecause Guptas crimes were more serious than those committed by Raj Rajaratnam, the billionaire hedge fund founder he tipped off. Ex-Goldman executives sentence raises some eyebrows

It really was a remarkable year, Lady Dragon h ead coach Linette Wells said afterward. We started out with pretty much a brand new team and we kept improving all season long. So too did the Lady Devils, who survived two close opening sets and rebounded from a third set loss to win going away. Im more relieved than anything, head coachS tephanie Devlin said. You never know what can happen in Districts and we havent had much luck inr ecent years. That would change this n ight, of course, though Avon Park would be tested. T hey jumped out to a 6-1 lead to get things rolling e arly, but saw a Samantha Phypers kill and Breauna Corley ace highlight a Dragon run that soon evened it at 6-6. The Devils managed to keep slim leads into the early teens, but a big Lake Placid run, sparked by two Corley kills, saw Lake Placid go up 19-15 and 22-1 6. A von Park clawed back, but stood on the brink of an opening loss at 24-22. But a key run of four straight snatched victory from the jaws of defeat for a harrowing 26-24 win. Things would play out s imilarly in the second set, though it was the Lady Dragons that opened the scoring, only to see the Devils rallying back. AMarina Torres kill and Ashley Chacon ace evened things up at 4-4 before a Jacalyn Baldwin kill aided a run that put Lake Placid up 9-6. Another Baldwin kill halted a Devil run and kepti t close at 14-13, but an Otisha Smith kill and a pair of aces from junior varsity call-up Amani Tate openedt he lead up to 19-13. The Dragons would fight b ack, with a Phypers tip closing the gap to 23-22. B ut the final two points would go to Avon Park, w ith Smith hammering home the game winner for the 25-22 win. That just shows the kind of contribuations you need, Devlin said. I brought (Tate) up for her serving. We put her in and s he gets a couple of aces. Things would turn, howe ver, as keeping things close wasnt going to satisfy this Lake Placid squad. They jumped up 7-3, though saw the Devils close to within two at 12-10. But Corley scored on an ace and kill and Shelbi B ertram added a scoring smash to push it to 18-11. A nother short run upped the ante to 21-12. Avon Park would score four of the next five points in an attempt to turn things around, but another Corley Anybody ever ask you why you fish? Its a reasonable question, given the fact that there are more non-fishermen in this country than fishermen. Years ago, Nick Lyons wrote an article for Field & Stream that I enjoyedi mmensely and have often s hared. Since this is my last column in the News-Sun, I wanted share his thoughts on fishing and fishermen What sends a person away from the comforts of his hard-earned home to f ight insects, rain, cold, and other disasters in the name of fishing? There is a curious rumor that fishing is idyllic and pastoral, that it rejuvenates the spirit and excites the blood to high adventure, that it requires high intelligence. My experience has been otherwise. Your boat leaks. It rains. You fall in the water, f reeze, boil, hook yourself, hook your partner, lose your equipment, catch the weeds, catch pneumonia, lose moree quipment, snarl the line, get bitten by flies you cant s ee, miss the big one, and hear inevitably, that you should have been here yesterday or last week or last m onth. If you return alive and sane, no one believes a word you tell them; if you stay out too long or too often, you lose your family and your job. If you dont stay out long enough, he who did will taunt you until your death that they began to bite like mad ten minutes after you left. You dont want to neglec t your wife, so you take her along: she gets bitten to shreds by blackflies and doesnt speak to you for a year. You take your children along, since youve heard that in these hard times the family that fishes together stays together: you spend all day untying knots, the kiddies fall in, you bring them home sopping wet and sneezing, and your wifed oesnt speak to you for a year. You drive 300 miles for striped bass fishing: the tides a re perfect, moon tides, but a hurricane has driven all the f ish offshore. Y ou fly to Montana in June: theres a snowstorm. You get up at 2 a.m. and collapse before you get to your pet stream. You get to your pet stream but 9 million guys have gotten there before you.

I felt like we were in slow motion, said head coach Venessa Sinness. We just moved very slow and were back on our heels. The Lady Streaks started off with a short run over Braves. Communication, an element that had been a difficulty for Sebring throughout the season, was not slacking at all. For the time being, the six on the court were playing in unison rather than as six individuals. The mood on the court appeared to Sebring stopped in semifinal See STREAKS, Page 4B

C M Y K They say that man has evolved. Fishing disproves it. In 1496, when Dame Juliana Berners wrote A Treatys of Flyfishing with an A ngle, it was possible to fish for a whole year for respectable fish with a few cents worth of equipment. In the stone age it was cheaper, and the fish were larger. Today more than $3 billion is spent annually by those called in the national surveys habitual anglers. And the fish are smaller and fewer, and certainly no smarter. On certain salmon rivers, the average fisherman spends more than $300 per salmon caught: its cheaper to have a dozen air-shipped from Scotland, and you dont have to worry about the black flies. President Grover Cleveland, who on this occasion knew whereof he spoke, pronounced: At the outset, the fact should be recognized that the community of fishermen constitute a class or subrace among the inhabitants of the earth. Subrace. Theres a message in that word. And in the word habitual, too. Good luck is the traditional greeting among brothers of the angle. Why not, Good grief!?I have been fishing since before I can remember, which is longer than Ive been doing anything that I can remember, so I might be considered an authority on why so many people fish. Ive also researched the issue closely as I dare: the results are frightening. One psychologist claims it is behavioral conditioning; another speaks of it as a submergence syndrome, a return to mother sea; others say there is covert hostility in all fishermen. Not against the fish, Im sure, but against oneself. No matter. No one really knows. We can go to the moon, but there are deeper mysteries and problems. Like why people fish. Consider how rational man in the twentieth century spends well over $3 billion on what he can buy for a few dollars in the local fish market. On April Fools day, whether it falls on the first of the month or the last Saturday, thousands of otherwise sane and reliable men rise long before sunup, drive through dark city streets and along bleak, deserted highways to their idyllic stream, then ritualistically immerse themselves in ice water. The temperature is below freezing, ice forms at the guides of their rods, they think desperately of excuses to wives and children for their madness, and by noon unless they have had rigorous training for this ordeal they are insensate, barely able to stand. The next day newspapers carry photos of strange figures from a subrace of man, and a bewildering tangle of poles and lines. Some are wearing arctic gear, others crouch around a streamside fire like cavemen; among them, there may be a beaming face and if you look closely you will see, hanging by the jaws of a stick, several small reasons why. Fortunately for many of these men, the season will be over in a month, and then they will go no more, but then turn to golf or countryclub tennis, to wives or badminton, to cruises and touristing, or to any of a hundred more socially acceptable and comfortable ways of spending their leisure moments. But many remain in the brotherhood of the angle. Some spend thousands of dollars and days on end in the scorching sun, pursuing saltwater sea monsters it will take them hours to land. Others stand on party boats, thirty abreast, havinga party hauling up cod. If you think cod fishing is fun, try attaching a clothesline to a can of garbage and lifting it to your fifth-floor apartment in the wind. Worst of all are the trout fishermen. Aguy named Art Flick once spent three years doing nothing but catching and identifying the bugs trout eat. He only carried a rod so fishermen wouldnt think he was nuts. Maybe those were the best years of his life. Trout fishermen are the subrace within the subrace. Which is pretty low. They spend endless hours tying little bits of birds feathers onto tiny wire hooks. They have been known to slip into a mystical trance at the mere mention of holy names like Beaverkill, Battenkill, Big Hole, Snake. They learn enough Latin to mumble about Iron fraudators and Ephemerella subvarias and Stenonema fuscums. They attend panel discussions and slide presentations by experts and learned entomologists. They study esoteric books like AModern Dry-Fly Code and Matching the Hatch. And all for what? For a creature that averages about the weight of two Idaho potatoes and has a brain smaller than a chick pea. Evolution? Perhaps the best answer to the age-old question of what keeps so many people in the category of habitual anglers was give twentyfive years ago by a sage named Ed Zern, who wrote that roughly two-thirds of all fishermen never eat fish. This should surprise nobody. Fish is brain food. People who eat fish have large well-developed brain. People with large, welldeveloped brains dont fish. And that was only part of the story. Since then the number of fishermen has greatly increased. Arather cryptic, disheartening view of why we fish, written by a fisherman. But Im a fisherman, and although I take exception to some of Nicks thoughts, he may be closer to the truth than I am. I own a $40,000.00 bass boat, at least 30-40 rods and reels and thousands of dollars worth of fishing lures, electronics and books on the subject of fishing. I buy a fishing license for both saltwater and freshwater fishing in many different states, not to mention clothing, hats, sunscreen and the like and my favorite target is largemouth bass which I catch a lot of and always release. On the rare occasions when I keep, clean and eat fish, typically crappies (specks species, Im often reminded that those tender filets may be costing me hundreds of dollars each. Perhaps I am a subrace or habitual angler, but I prefer to consider that Im part of a large segment of our country who simply loves to fish. Notwithstanding the many hardships listed in this article, fishing defines who I am. For all the non-fishermen out there, theyll never understand. For those of you who do nothing more needs to be said. This is my last column for the News-Sun newspaper. I enjoyed writing this column for the last six months and hearing from and meeting many of my readers. If anybodys looking for me, Ill be fishing.

But here was where the turnaround came about, as Otaysha Smith got it started with an ace for the opening point. The Lady Dragons would bounce back for a brief lead early, but it didnt last long. Otisha Smith would add three kills to her match-high 16, while scoring slams werea lso had by Teresa Devlin, B rianna Rogue and Chacon, with Chacon also adding consecutive aces. The Devils would build leads of 15-9 and 21-13 before settling on a 25-16 win. It was a good match and w e played well, Wells said. von Park just played smart. They found some weak spots and attacked. I just cant say enough about the job Stephanie has done t here. She has really built them into a strong team.

AP in District Final and State Playoffs News-Sun photo by BRITTANYWHITTINGTON Despite a big night from senior Meghan Lollis, and a valient comeback from two-sets down, the Lady Streakss aw their season come to a close Tuesday night. b e very concentrated yet relaxed. Suddenly, Lake Gibson was able to find a little momentum and stole the lead from the Streaks and changed the momentum. Sebring tied up the score at 11 and Lake Gibson called a timeout to try and recover lost momentum. The Streaks were able to go on a short run bringing the score 16-13, but the Lady Braves were able to pull the score closer and bring it back to a tie at 16. The rest of the set became a nail biter. With the lead going back and forth between the two teams for the rest of the set, Lake Gibson finished it off 25-22. T he Braves were able to keep the fire from the first set victory to carry into the second set leaving Sebring behind 4-2. T he Blue Streaks picked up a little spit fire and tied the score up at f our then again at nine. T he Streaks kept their cool, calm, and collective tone throughout the second set and took a slight lead, but Lake Gibson tied up back at 16. The nailbiting continued with a back-and-forth point war between the two sides. Lake Gibson called a timeout when they were down 19-17. The Braves tied back up at 20 creating stress on the Sebring bencha nd soon lead to a timeout of their own when they got down 21-20. The momentum did not work out in their favor with Lake Gibson fini shing the set again at 25-22. And just when it seemed that this w ould be a closely contested match, t he Streaks suddenly broke out in commanding fashion in the third set. Down 10-5, the Braves called a timeout and would be forced to do so again when the Sebring lead grew to 17-8. But nothing was going to stop the momentum at the moment as the Streaks continued to roll and soon claimed the lopsided, 25-10 win. T he momentum would not last for long, however, and it was back to a nip-and-tuck battle in the fourth set. L ake Gibson went up early but Sebring would catch them and take a brief lead at 17-16 on a service a ce from Allie Mann. The Lady Braves would go on a charge and get to within game point at 24-19, but the Streaks found that momentum again, catching them at 24, 25 and 26 before earning the final two points in the 28-26 win to move it to the fifth-set tie-breaker. But the ups and downs of this season were soon shown in this little capsule as after these two thrilling wins, Sebring came out flati n the finale. Lake Gibson ran rampant to start t he set, getting out to 7-0 and 11-2 leads. The gap would close some, but this time the hole was too deep to dig out of as the season fell one match short of reaching the district title game and the state playoffs. The Streaks will lose two standouts to graduation in Meghan Lollis and Mann, but will return a strong core to the court next season. Continued from 1B Streaks battle to the end

My doctor is sick of me,and wants to try Horizant n ow,since Requip and Mirapex didnt work. Should I try? T.N.,Centennial,Colo. Answer: Your doctor is sick o f you? After four years and all the money youve paid,you should be free of this nighttime c alamity. R LS symptoms include an u ncontrollable urge to move your legs,and an unpleasant sensation of creepy-crawlies,as if worms are in your legs. There m ay be burning,tingling and s ymptoms worsen when you lie d own,but often get better if you stretch or walk. Soon,I will offer ideas to help you overcome the condition,but first lets discuss thep rescription medication Horizant,a brand name of gabapentin enacarbil. O n a flight home,I was reading the Oct. 22 issue of People magazine,and I came across ana d for it which begins with RLS is actually a neurological condition.Hmm,that got my a ttention. It is not always neurological.It may be a vitamin or mineral deficiency which can be evaluated by a blood test. Anyway,the ad says to Call y our health care provider right away if you have any of these s ymptoms,especially if they are new,worse or worry you: Thoughts or actions about sui-c ide,self-harm or dying; attempt to commit suicide,new o r worse restlessness or panic attacks,acting aggressive,being angry or violent; acting on dangerous impulses. Remember,you started with r estless legs. Whenever I see scary potential side effects e ven if they are uncommon I wonder why patients find that acceptable,and why physiciansp rescribe drugs that cause more serious problems than the origin al issue. RLS is often caused by low levels of the hormone d opamine,which acts as a natural happneurotransmitter in your brain. An easy way to evaluate dopamine is to measure another hormone called prol actinand if that is elevated, you can bet youre dopamine deficient. Dopamine can be created in the brain by taking supplementso f the amino acid Tyrosine along with some vitamin B6 ( yes,both at the same time in the morning,but ask your doctor if its okay). R LS may also be caused from deficiencies of ferritin,a s tored form of iron. Hematocrit may be normal,but ferritin could still be low. I f you take a statin cholesterol reducing drug,you could develop symptoms that reek of RLS. Only replenishing what the drug mugger stole will r elieve your symptoms,so in the statin case (because they are drug muggers of CoQ10,vitamin D and creatine) you must restore those. A dditionally,L-carnitine, folic acid and magnesium are a ll critical considerations to support muscle health because they ease leg cramps,weaknessa nd muscle spasms.

A ssociated PressMost women can wait three to five years between checks for cervical cancer,depending on their age and test choice,say guidelines issued Monday. M any medical groups have long recommended a Pap test every three years for most women. The new advice from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists says thats true for women ages 21 to 29 whose Paps show no sign of trouble. B ut for healthy women ages 30 to 65,the p referred check is a Pap plus a test for the c ancer-causing HPV virus,the group concluded. If both show everythings fine,they can wait five years for further screening. T he guidelines from the nations largest OB-GYN organization agree with advice i ssued earlier this year by a government p anel,the American Cancer Society and o ther medical groups showing growing consensus that its safe for the right women t o wait longer between Paps. C ervical cancer grows so slowly that regul ar Pap smears,which examine cells scraped from the cervix,can find signs early enough to treat before a tumor even forms. Certain strains of HPV,the human papillomavirus,cause most cervical cancer,but thei nfection has to persist for a number of years t o do its damage. HPV is a super-common virus in youn g women,whose bodies usually clear the infect ion on their own. Thus,health groups dont r ecommend routinely testing 20-somethings for HPV because it would cause too many false alarms. A Pap averages around $40; HPV tests can add another $50 to $100. Report: Most women need Paps every 3 or 5 years

How do you know if the information is correct? Wast hat website written by a 12year-old with lots of compute r knowledge,but not much medical expertise? Or maybe someone trying to sell miracle cures? One good internet source i s a website associated with a well known medical school s uch as the Medical College of Georgia (www.MCG.health.org).T his site has a virtual medical librarywith informat ion on such diverse topics as car seats and asthma,all listed alphabetically. A nother excellent website is the Mayo Clinic website (www.mayoclinic.com). This i s one of the most comprehensive medical sites I have s een. Topics run from newborn care for stressed out parents to stevia for weight control to the benefits of Tai Chi. There is a symptomc hecker,drug info,healthy recipes and first aid information. Other good internet sources are specialty group websites. The American Academy of OrthopaedicS urgeons (www.aaos.org) and the Hand Society ( www.assh.org) have all of their patient information brochures available online. The American Academy of Dermatology( www.AAD.org) also has a lot of good information on skin problems. They have a video on self exam for skin cancer that is very useful fora nyone who has had a lot of sun exposure and/or a family history of skin disease. Many of these websites also have physician locators. These are doctors who are board certified and are members of the specialty society. Many doctors have websites associated with their p ractice and some have links to websites they think are u seful. These sites often contain information on the doctors training,specialty boards and area of expertise within the specialty. A nother way you can use the web is to check on a doctors credentials. The specialty boards all have websites and most will allow you to enter a doctors name to verify board certification.T his means the doctor has had an approved residency a nd passed an exam. Some specialties have additional practice requirements. This assures a level of competency. I ndividual states do not license by specialty only to practice medicine and surgeryin that state. You can research your m edical problems,but remember that sometimes a little knowledge is dangerous. This is particularly true when reading about prescription medications. Often the list of side effects is scary because all side effects are listed without the perspective of how often they occur o r if a particular group is more at risk than others. S ome drugs,for example chemotherapy drugs,have nasty side effects but not as bad as the untreated disease. Often patients stop or do nott ake medicines but never tell their doctor; occasionally with disastrous results. If you have a concern,speak with your doctor. Dr. Diana D.

The proposed agreement in a national class action suit would allow Medicare patients to keep receivingp hysical and occupational therapy and other skilled s ervices at home or in a nursing home so they can remain stable,said GillD eford,a lawyer with the Center for Medicare Advocacy. Thats been a problem for s ome because of a longstanding Medicare policy that says patients must show improvement to keep getting rehab. If you have a chronic condition,by definition you are not improving,said Deford,the lead attorney on the case. Our view is that Medicare regulations werei ntended to allow people to maintain their health status. T hey dont have to show they are getting any better.

C M Y K She would fill up the tub out in the yard. This tub was blocked up on brick. She would light a fire under that tub and boil those clothes. She would carry water about 100 feet and fill up two more tubs on the porch. She had a scrub board in one of the other tubs. After she boiled the clothes,she would scrub the clothes by hand. Then in the third tub,she would wrench and ring the clothes by hand. Then she would take the clothes out in the yard and hang the clothes on a line. Then after the clothes dried, she would take them down and take the clothes in the house. That was a full days work. Then,the next morning she would light a fire in the wood stove. That was another full days work, ironing all those clothes. In the 1930s,when my dad wanted to sell a cow or two,he would tell Hob Parnell and Clifford Eiland. They had a little meat market on Park Street behind the ice plant. They would come out and butcher a cow or two. There was a pine tree on the south side of the hill down in the woods behind the barn. They would string those cows up in that pine tree to butcher them. Palmetto fans were plentiful around that pine tree. They would cut palmetto fans and lay them in the bottom of the pick-up bed. They would lay the meat on the palmetto fans. About 1940,Hob drove four spikes in the trunk of that pine tree,about five feet up from the ground. As they cut the cows up,they would hang the meat up on the spikes. In the early 1940s,Hob and Clifford sold the meat market to Charlie Goodwin. Charlie still used that same pine tree and the four spikes, when he came out and butchered. In the latter 1940s,the Wauchula Livestock Market opened up. Then we started taking cows over there. The old pine tree is now retired. The old pine tree died December 1986. Charles Schlosser is a long-time Sebring resident and enjoys recalling the days of old.

Continued from page 9B RELIGION Snapshots T he story is told of a man who preached on Sundays and drove a bus during the week. One day,a rider boarded the bus,paidh is fare,and walked to the back of the bus. The preacher,upon counting the fare,realized the man had paid too much. He shoutedb ack to the man to come up and receive his change. When the man came for-w ard he said,I paid you too much on purpose. I heard your sermon on hon-e sty last Sunday,and I just wanted to see if you pract iced what you preached! One of the hardest things we will ever do is try tol ive our lives like Jesus Christ lived His. I am not r eferring to living without sin as the Son of God perfectly lived His life. Instead,I am suggesting that we live our lives inw ays that reflect Jesus to the world around us. How d o we do that? By studying the Bible and obeying its commands,we each cang row in a knowledge and wisdom that only comes f rom God in Heaven above. During that growth process, we can expect to see changes in our lives thatd raw us closer to the Father through a more Christ like b ehavior in the things that we think,say,and do. Then, those around us will starts eeing that example of the Savior in us. C olossians 3:17 reads, And whatever you do in word or deed,do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks through Himt o God the Father.In other words,live your life like J esus Christ who always sought the pleasure of His heavenly Father in every-t hing He thought,said,or did. To the best of your a bility,try to live for the Lord a life that is better t oday than the one you l ived the day before. Y oung people have a saying today that is similar to the practice what you preachthat has been around for so long. It state s, ou can talk the talk,butc an you walk the walk? Anyone can speak the words of Jesus. That is easy. But,can you taket hose words,listen to them b elieve them,obey them, and live them? If you can d o that,then you are walking the walkof Jesus,and you are pleasing in the eye s of Almighty God. R emember,Not everyone who says to Me,Lord, L ord,will enter the kingdom of heaven,but he who does the will of My Father w ho is in heaven will e nter.(Matthew 7:21) Kevin's Komments is presented by the Sebring Parkway church of Christ assembling at 3800 Sebring Parkway, Sebring, FL 3 3870.

C M Y K By BOB GARVER Special to the News-SunF or my review of aranormal Activity 3,I gave the film a star rating in two parts. I wrote that the overly familiar plot would be unimpressive to anyone who had seen the previous entries in the series,and for those people I gave the film a rating of two and a half stars. But for newcomers who didt yet know what to expect and would therefore be in fora surprise,I gave the film three and a half stars. For the franchises fourth installment,Im going to switch the star ratings around. I think that those familiar with the series will find more to like than those coming in with no frame of reference. The film takes place about five years after the series first and second installments, which ran simultaneously (the third was a prequel,and it took some sting out of the scares to know that the two little girls at the films center would definitely make it out alive to appear in the second movie). You may remember that the second film ended with the evil Katie (Katie Featherston) kidnapping her nephew for unclear demonic purposes following multiple murders. The new film tries to get new viewers caught up on the storyline,but I dont think thell be able to make any sense of the choppy introduction. The new film features Alex (Kathryn Newton),a teenage girl filming the mundane events of her life. Its mostly stuff involving her immature boyfriend,her at-odds parents,and her little brother Wyatt. Some strange things start happening with a neighbor boy named Robbie. His mother gets injured and he comes to stay with Alex and her family for a while. Needless to say,this really causes the weirdness to pick up,especially as Robbie and Wyatt start interacting with a mutual invisible (dont say imaginary) friend named Toby. Alex and her boyfriend begin using computer cameras to monitor the house, which she is now convinced is haunted. The scares are typical of the franchise. We get a lot of bangs,sudden movements, things popping into frame, and creepy things happening unbeknownst to the characters. Many of the early scares turn out to be red herringsa nd if you see the film with friends you can have some fun competing against each other in predicting the legitimacy of the next one. Unique to this installment is that the mere presence of Katie in a scene is to be treated as a reason to be scared. She may not have a scary look to her,but we know what she can do and she usually turns up where she isnt welcome. Or at least fans of the series know what Katie can do. There are a lot of scenes in the movie that will be appreciated by fans that will go over the heads of newcomers. I saw the film with a responsive crowd and everybody welcomed back Katie, Toby,and even the title cards that tell us what night it is. Longtime viewers know that these elements,as well as the slow build and fakeouts are an important part of the filmsstyle. Newer viewers may not have the patience for such a setup,but true fans watch these films just as much for the journey as the destination. Speaking of the destination,the last five minutes of aranormal Activity 4are terrific. The finale had my audience screaming and then laughing at themselves for screaming. An enthusiastic crowd can easily turn a simple screening into a party,and this is especially true with horror films. When the screen turned to black,I applauded and announced that I would see everybody next year. Im sure there will be a Paranormal Activity 5and I cant waitt o see it with a few hundred friends. Three-and-a-half stars if youve seen the other aranormal Activity movies. Two-andha-half stars if you havent. Paranormal Activity 4is rated R for language and some violence/terror. Its running time is 88 minutes.

Jaredhas wonderful kids and a successfulc areer. Hes handsome and is kind to me,my kids and my family.We enjoy each other immensely,and we are now engaged. W e are social drinkers, but about once a year Jared g ets incredibly intoxicated and changes into the most horrible person I have evers een. Its all verbal yelling nothing physical but i s still inexcusable. After an episodehe is guiltridden and apologetic for weeks. I believe hes sincere,but it has made mer ethink our engagement. He had an episode a week a go the third during the time weve been together. Our kids are close and c are about each other. I love Jared,but if I have to e ndure another instance of this I dont think I can go through with the marriage.I m still angry about the last bout,and hes still guilt-ridden. How do I a pproach this? Conflicted in P ennsylvania Dear Conflicted: The first thing to do is make it your business to attend some Al-Anon meetings.W hen you do,youll soon realize that the behavior Jared is exhibiting can escalate. While Jared may be able to handle his liquor 364 days a year (now),whath appens on that 365th is a deal-breaker. Unless you w ant to spend your life worrying every time Jared picks up a glass who he will be when he puts the glass down,draw the linen ow.Tell him the person he becomes during these episodesis a stranger you have no desire to have anything to do with ever and if he cant guarantee that you will never see that person again,the marriage is off. Of course,this will mean the end of his social drinking and probably yours. If what you have together is as special as you say,it is only a small sacrifice. Be prepared,because he will probably deny he has a problem. Unless you want to become a miserable nervous wreck, you must not relent. The explos ion,the guilt,the honeymoon period afterward are similar to the cycle of domesticv iolence,so be aware of that. Dear Abby: My beautiful son died five years ago. He chose his death byh anging suicide. He had suffered for years,and all o ur love couldnt help him. He once told me,Mom,I dont want to live like thisa nymore. I want to be with Jesus. W e know we will see him again. Still,I find it hard to tell people how he died. I know I dont have to,but it still haunts mes ometimes. Id like to know how others who have b een through the same thing feel about this. Thank you for your support. Mom in Connecticut Dear Mom: Im sorry a bout the death of your son,who suffered from severe chronic depression.W hen there is a suicide, the family can experience a range of emotions includi ng anger,sadness and guilt. When a child comm its suicide there can also be feelings of self-recrimination. If thats the case with you,please seek counsel-i ng. Im sure that when your letter is published,ll hear from readers who will share their experiences. If you will visit the American Foundation forS uicide Prevention website, www.afsp.org,you can s earch for a suicide survivor support group in your area,because talking with others who have experienced this can be helpful.

Fiances rare drunken bouts could become more frequent Dear Abby By CHRISTY LEMIRE A P Movie CriticM aybe if youre 20 years old and high in your dorm room with your friends,the platitudes presented in Cloud Atlasmight seem profound. A nyone else in his or her right mind should recognize it for what it is:a bloated,pseudo-intellectual,self-indulgent slog through some notionst hat are really rather facile. Ooh,were all interconnected and our souls keep meeting up with each other over the centuries,regardless of race,gender or geography.W re individual drops of water but were all part of the s ame ocean. That is deep, man. Perhaps it all worked better o n the page. Cloud Atlas comes from the best-selling n ovel of the same name by David Mitchell which,in theory,might have seemed unfilmable,encompassing six stories over a span of 500y ears and including some primitive dialogue in a fara way future. Sibling directors Lana and Andy Wachowski who actually have come upw ith some original,provocative ideas of their own in the Matrixmovies (well,at least the first one) working with Run Lola RundirectorT om Tykwer,havechopped up the various narratives and intercut between them out of o rder. The A-list actors who comprise the cast play multip le parts across the various stories and in elaborate makeup thats often laughable. Tom Hanks is a scheming doctor on a voyage across theS outh Pacific in 1849,a trashtalking novelist in present-day London and a peaceful goatherd whos part of a postapocalyptic tribe in the 2300s. Halle Berry is a composers white trophy wife in 1936S cotland,an investigative reporter in 1973 San F rancisco and a member of an elite society of prescients in t he farthest future. Hugh Grant is often the least recognizable of all beneath layers of prosthetics and goop:at one point,hes a vengeful oldm an; at another,hes the raging leader of a band of cannib als. One easy rule of thumb:If you see Hugo Weaving,youk now hes a bad guy. Except for the story line in which he p lays a woman,that is:an oppressive Nurse Ratched figure in a psychiatric hospital. M aybe the concept of transformation and of connectedness despite the physical vess els we occupy felt especially resonant for the transgender L ana Wachowski,formerly Larry Wachowski. But rather than serving as a satisfying, cohesive device,the multipleparts strategy feels like a dis-t racting gimmick. Instead of seamlessly melding with the films philosophy of continuity,it keeps you constantly wondering:Who is that actor made up to look Asian? Who is that beneath the henna tat-t oos and macrame? Is that... Susan Sarandon?It takes you o ut of the heart of the stories and holds you at arms length. Cloud Atlasis ambitious in its scope,for sure edited fluidly and often wondrous to look at,but totally ineffective from an emotional perspec-t ive. As youre watching it you m ay ponder as I did whether any of these six stories across disparate genres would bem ore compelling as its own, stand-alone film. P ossibly the one set in preWorld War II,starring Ben Whishaw as an up-and-com-i ng composer who flees London when hes exposed asa homosexual and goes to w ork for an aging musical master (Jim Broadbentall t he while writing letters to his lover (James DArcy) full of humor and longing. (This is one of the Tykwer segments, by the way. He also directedt he tales set in 1973 and 2012, while the Wachowskis took on 1849,2144 and the 24th century.) The most ridiculous is the one that takes place After the Fallin Hawaii in the mid-2 300s. It requires Hanks and Berry to yammer at each other i n a disjointed,stripped-down version of English thats as i ndecipherable as it is laughable. Even more unintentionally hilarious is the sight of Weaving hopping around in green makeup like some sub-v ersive leprechaun,whispering naughty things in Hanks e ar. On the other end of the spectrum,the most engagingt ale of all is set in the gleaming,futuristic city of Neo S eoul,a place of detailed, totalitarian precision built atop the remnants of a flood.S onmi-451 (Doona Bae one of countless fabricated restaurant workers locked in a d aily routine of servitude and sleep. B ut she longs to think for herself and dares to escape with the help of a young revolutionary played by Jim Sturgess. S ure,its hugely derivative with its garish,dystopian aesthetic and themes of machines turning on the people who invented them,but its also the only one that comes close to capturing any real sense ofh umanity. Cloud Atlas laughably self-serious MCT Tom Hanks stars as Zachry, and Halle Berry as Meronym, in the epic drama, Cloud Atlas distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.
