Hahn and his wife, Kay, are painting a mural to honor Sebrings centennial at Magnolia Avenuea nd Ridgewood Drive. A 100th birthday card for Sebring By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY email@example.comSEBRING Two artists and a group of citizens and businesses joined in creating a birthday card for the city. Larger than life, a mural is taking shape on what had been a bare, boring, rectangular wall on the (roughly Magnolia Avenue and Ridgewood Drive. James R. Hahn and his wife, Kay, are the artists behind the project. The Centennial was coming up and we wanted to do something special, he said. When Katie and Mike Eldridge offered a blank wall for a mural celebrating Sebrings 100 years, Hahn jumped at the chance. It was a meeting of the minds, he said. What better way to commemorate the citys birthday? Sponsors stepped up to cover the costs and the city gave its blessing. As of Saturday, the Hahns had completed about half of the work, and the 40-foot-wide painting began to take shape. Race cars pop out in the center, a checkered flag to one side, the state flag on the other. Just above the race cars, a sea plane comes in for a landing. Theres a twist with the plane. Look closely the wall has a large exhaust fan sticking out of the side at the top. Centennial mural to be finished in November By BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentSEBRING It rolls around once every four years and thep residential elections are a very busy time at the H ighlands County Supervisor of Elections office. This years cycle might be theb usiest yet during the career of outgoing elections superv isor Joe Campbell. He has predicted 70 percent of the voters will cast their ballots locally. Thats about what it runs, hes aid. In 2008 people were pred icting 90 percent turn out but it turned out to be 68.8 percent. C ampbell said this year may be a bit higher based o n the fact that 9,800 absentee ballots went out in 2008 b ut as of Friday, his office already had processed more t han 10,000 requests. The absentee requests started at the beginning of October with the overseas ballots being mailed out first. The pace has p icked up rapidly with some 250-300 requests c oming in each day as of last week. Of course the phones n ever stop ringing, he said. Requests by mail will c ome to an end this coming Wednesday. Beginning Thursday, voters will be able to come in and pick up absentee ballots for those that need t hem, Not just anybody can get t hem; they will need to bring a note from the person requesting the ballot and theyw ill have to show us their identification before we can hand them a ballot, Early voting under way in three locations B y BARRYFOSTER News-Sun correspondentLAKE PLACID In an unfores eenmove, BPOil announced Thursday that their plans to build a $ 300millionethanol plant in Highlands County have been scrapped. Officials from the Highlands County Economic DevelopmentC ommission saidtheywere blindsided when word came down that the project had been scuttled by the petroleum giant. The announcementto buildthe 36m illion gallon-per-year ethanol plantsouth of Lake Placid came with much fanfare backin 2009. The deal was a partnership between BPand theMassachusetts-based Verenium Corporation. The commercial facility was to have beenthe first in the state of Florida to use next-generation cellulosic ethanol technology, converting renewable grasses to fuel, rather than processing food crops.

The building is now known as the Dr. Norman L. Stephens Jr. Health and Science Education Center, in honor of the college president.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunSEBRING The Highlands County Sheriffs Office is requesting assistance from the public in an attempt to locate a hog trap. This trap was taken from a citrus grove in the area of Holmes Road between Sept. 22-23. The trap was last seen in the area known as Tiki Hill. Due to the size of the trap, it is believed suspects loaded the trap on to some type of trailer and towed it away, possibly even placing it in another hunting location. The trap is approximately 10 feet long, 5 feet high and 5 feet wide. It has both a trap door and an access door on the same end of the trap. The top edge of the trap is somewhat unique in that it is framed in cold rolled steel and square tubing. If you know the whereabouts of this trap, contact Detective Fred Tagtmeier, Highlands County Sheriffs Office Agricultural Crimes Unit at 402-7440 or 402-7250 or Heartland Crime Stoppers at 1-800-226-TIPS (8477 www.heartlandcrimestoppers.com. B y LARRYLEVEY News-Sun correspondentSEBRING In 1934, Joe Matesic, 17, of Lackawanna, N.Y., enrolled in the Civilian Conservation Corps, the New Deal, a Depression-era program created by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt to rescue two of Americas most precious resources: its youtha nd its land. Thats why in June of that year, Joe found himself in Sebring, assigned to the newly opened, 200-man, CCC Camp 262. Much of his six-m onth tour of duty was spent working on lands that later w ould become Highlands Hammock State Park. And 78 years later, on Oct. 2 4, he found himself back on those same lands, reliving his C CC days, thanks to the loving efforts of both his family and the Highlands Hammock staff. Yes, Joe is alive and kicki ng. While wheelchair-bound, hes alert, friendly, funny, has s urprisingly good health and a good memory, does some of his own cooking and livesb y himself back in Lackawanna, although nearby f amily and friends, along with Meals on Wheels, keep him going. S ome months ago, as several family members were traveling in Florida, they twice w ound up in Sebring where they visited Highlands H ammock. With the help of museum volunteer Margaret Stickley, they discovered that one of the photos of CCCers on display in the museum wast hat of Joe Matesic, now 95 years old. When he was told about the CCC museum and the photograph, a family project was started to get him to Sebring. The project came to life onO ct. 24, when Joe, two of his sons and their fiances met w ith park staff for a grand tour of the museum, followed by a narrated tram tour of the back regions of the park. Had you been in the museu m on Oct. 24, in addition to an excited Joe and his excited family, you would have seen an excited staff. It was as if t hey had discovered a longlost relative. Park Manager Steve Dale was all smiles ash e wheeled Joe around the museum, stopping at each e xhibit to ask questions, swap stories and share some laughs. Like the tale Joe told abouts omeone sneaking into his barracks and stealing the $5 that enrollees received monthl y (with the balance of $25 sent home to the family). Or l ike the time he felt something moving inside his trousers. He quickly opened his pants and out comes this snake. On a more serious note, he a lso spoke of how much he enjoyed sending that money back home and how much he appreciated what President Roosevelt did for this country. Assistant Park Manager Brian Pinson summed up thef eelings shared by many of the rangers when he said, So m any of us that are in the profession owe so much to Joe for paving the way and making it possible. Most of us dont meet anyb ody from the CCC, so any time we do, theres an emotional bond with them. Its very touching. Toward the end of his visit, J oe said he wanted to tell the rangers he was so happy that everybody gave me such a nice welcome.

C M Y K By SAMANTHAGHOLAR s email@example.comSEBRING Woodlawn Elementary School Principal Kaye Bowers has been named as one of the 2012 participants in the Commissioners Leadership Academy. The prestigious, inaugural event brings together Floridas school district leaders to be amongst the best and brightest administrators in the state. The participants were each nominated by instructional leaders; Bowers was nominated by Superintendent Wally Cox in late September. Academy attendees, which are primarily principals, met two weeks ago to build upon their proven leadership skills in hopes of returning back to their districts to continue their good work. The attendees met with interim Commissioner of Education Pam Stewart and CEO of the Florida Superintendent Association Bill Monftord. What we did was met with the Commissioner of Education and the CEO of the Florida Superintendents Association. There are three points to the elite group they call it, but I dont know about that, Bowers chuckled. The 25 administrators selected from all over the state focus on three things during the academy meetings, the first designing and holding a principals forum. The focus of the forum is to concentrate on the implementation of the common core standards, Bowers explained. The second point, is the mentoring of a colleague in their specific district. The colleague is chosen by the district superintendent. Our superintendent chose Lake Placid Elementary Principal Carrie Connor. She is in her first year as principal there and I meet with her and advise her and help her through her first year Bowers said. Finally, the last point of the academy is to connect with mentors of their own. The academy leaders are expected to gain more knowledge and skills from former and retired administrators from all around the state of Florida. The intent of the entire academy is to lead the common core standards implementation for the states curr ent and future administrators. The state of Florida will soon be in line with the majority of the countrys curriculum standards, which makes education more fluid and equal at the elementary school level. Bowers and her fellow academy leaders will met a few more times during the remainder of the 2012-2013 school year. Seminars are scheduled for mid-February and mid-May. The Commissioners Leadership Academy wraps up in June, following the school year, with an evaluation of the experience by the 25 leaders. o me this says a lot about our school. We have been named one of the top 25 improvement schools in the state of Florida, which means we have one of the top 25 faculties in the state, Bowers said. It really is the school and the families partnering together, I just happen to be the principal. It is about the faculty; we have a great faculty and great partnership. www.newssun.comN ews-SunS unday, October 28, 2012Page 3A BROOKS, JAMES; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black; main political; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 4 4 5 5 6 6 3 3 DR.

C M Y K Early voting began Saturday. We urge every registered voter to foll ow through and cast in a ballot.By this time,most prospective voters have made up their minds as to the candidates they want to become l eaders. Filling in the circles for them will be easy. Come the section of the b allot listing proposed Florida constitutional amendm ents,however,and the going gets rough,unless y ouve studied before entering the polling place. There are graphic problems the print is small and d ifficult to read; and there are problems of understanding the language is dense and f illed with legal jargon. Voters who think they can d ecide 11 different issues,all with consequences,on a sin-g le reading while people wait in line,are forgive us o verestimating their talent. Wve had trouble decip hering the amendments ourselves. In searching for unbiased translations we discovered the Collins Center for Public Policy,a nonpartisan think tank that focuses on Florida. H ere are brief summaries the center prepared on each amendment. They onlyr estate in clear language what t he amendments say.There is no argument for or against. A mendment 1 would add a n amendment to the state constitution that attempts to prohibit the government from requiring individuals to purchase health insurance. Amendment 2 would allow certain disabled veterans, who were Florida residents prior to entering military service,to qualify for a disc ount on their property taxes. Amendment 3 would set a state revenue limit each year based on a formula that considers population growth andi nflation,instead of using the current method of calculating the revenue limit on personal income. Amendment 4 would reduce the maximum annual increase in taxable value of non-homestead properties from 10 percent to 5 percent; provide an extra homestead exemption for first-time home buyers; and allow lawmakers to prohibit assessment increases for properties with decreasing market val-u es. A mendment 5 would provide for Senate confirmation of Florida Supreme Court justices; give lawmakers control over changes to the rulesg overning the court system; a nd direct the Judicial Qualifications Commission, w hich investigates judicial misconduct,to make its files available to the Speaker of the Florida House of Representatives. Amendment 6 would make the existing federal ban onp ublic funding for most abortions part of the state constit ution. It would narrow the scope of a state privacy law t hat is sometimes used in Florida to challenge abortion laws. A mendment 7 had to be r edrafted and was withdrawn. Upon revision,it was reinstated as Amendment 8. Amendment 8 would r emove the prohibition in F loridas constitution that p revents religious institutions from receiving taxpayer funding. Amendment 9 would grant a full property tax exemptiont o the surviving spouses of m ilitary veterans who die w hile on active duty and to the surviving spouses of first responders who die in thel ine of duty. Amendment 10 would doub le the tangible personal tax exemption and allows cities a nd counties to expand exemptions beyond that. Amendment 11 would give a n additional property tax e xemption to low-incom e seniors who have lived in their home for more than 25 y ears. And Amendment 12 would change the way the state selects the student represen-t ative on the state university systems Board of Governors, which oversees the system.

As I type this,we have less than two weeks to go before Election Day. Its almost over. I saw three out of the four televised debates the vice presidential one and two of the presidential confrontations. A workshop I was attending caused me to miss the first debate. While Idh ave liked to have seen it,I doubt that it would have changed my mind. None of t he debates did,to be hone st. As a friend reminded me, t he debates are not for people like me,who have already decided how were going to vote. They are for the undecided,those who are still weighing their options. So why did I watch them at all,if my mind is made up? I learn things during the debates. Besides,I am a political junkie. The debates are part of our political process,and under the right circumstances are not a snooze. If I read the polls after the debates correctly,Governor Romney has reason to be happy.The debates seem to have benefited him. Even the last debate,where I personally felt he wasnt as strong as he was in the others,he seems to have landed on his feet. On the other hand,the President didnt seem to recover from his poor first showing. Even when people said he won a debate on points(whatever that means) he is losing in the polls,which appear to be swinging around to Romnes side. Im not saying that Romney is guaranteed to win the election. While its less than two weeks to go before Election Day,thats a long time in politics. Things could change in a day. But right now Romney has to be happy with the current trend. Having said that,lets move on to a question I find myself pondering as I watch this election season,filled w ith rancor and divisiven ess. No matter who wins, my question is the same: what happens after the elec t ion? W hen I posed this quest ion to a friend of mine,sh e a nswered that life would go o n. Business would go on as u sual. Same old,same old. I n a broad sense this is t rue. No matter who wins t he election,I will wake up the day after the election a nd I will still be who I am M y family will still love me, t he sun will still rise,and I w ill still need to lose w eight. None of that will change. But there are a few thing s t hat I hope will change. And the biggest thing I want to see change is how both sid e s s ee each other. Will we continue to fight? Democrats and Republicans have made politics a blood sport. Cooperation is derided. Putting the country above the party? That isnt taken seriously.At least it doesnt seem to be. And what about us,the citizens? I have friends wh o disagree with me politically. With some of them,I can conduct a rational debate. Others,we avoid the topic like the plague and I wind up skipping some of their Facebook posts so I dont get mad at them (as Im su re they skip some of mine). No matter who wins the election on Nov. 6,we need to remember afterwards we are still Americans. And we are still one nation. Lets pull together and do our best to work for the best of our country.That should be what the priority is,shouldt it? Laura Ware is a Sebring resident.

On March 18th,Matty was struck and killed by a car in our neighbor-h ood. The driver was the older brother of some girls who Matty was playing with that day. In fact,he was on his way back over to their house when their brother hit him and then left the scene. ll never know what happened. W as he texting? Was he high on drugs? Does he feel remorse? T o this day,he has never told us he is sorry for the tragedy of Mattys death. He has not even been charged with any official crime. The only punishment he may receive is to have hisl icense revoked for one year,but hes taken the time and financial resources to hire an attorney from Miami to fight even that slap on the wrist. When I leave my house each day,I c an see his driveway. The vehicle that struck and killed my son now sits there with the damage still present on the right front end,a constant reminder of exactly what happened to my precious angel. Is it wrong to want something from the man who did this? An explanation? Just a few words saying he didnt mean to do this to my son and my family? It is hard to begin taking the steps to forgiving him when he wont even look at us in court. To all you drivers out there,slow down. Put your phones down. Look at the road. Dont put someone through the hell I live each day. Mandy Fisher Avon ParkOther places than PBS to cutEditor: I disagree with the editorial of the Oct. 21,2012 News-Sun. We need to keep PBS at all costs. I dont have much money,but I gladly contribute to PBS every month. To save money,how about the politicians stop voting themselves huge raises every year,along with their free, taxpayer supported healthcare? Why did our government give $1.3 billion of my tax dollars to Nissan,a Japanese car company? Only Ford and General Motors are the only two American carmakers left,everything else is foreignowned,period. We need to take care of our own first. PBS could do a lot of good for 1.3 billion dollars. At 62 years old,I am still working, saddled with cancer,yet I stand in the grocery check-out line and see well-fed people,a fraction of my age,using food stamps. So,I pay for my food and theirs too. Time to cut this out to save money. Its also time to stop subsidizing parents with kids with taxpayer money. When you have kids,they are your responsibility and should not be a burden on the taxpayers backs. Ive never had children,so I guarantee my lifetime tax burden has been greater than that for any family.Any mature person should heavily consider their situation in life before they even think about the great responsibility of having children. We need to stop illegal aliens coming to our country to have free babies and then we end up paying the bill. Lets get rid of NASA and the I.R.S. Anything NASA discovered could have been done in the private sector given tax break incentives. We all know how much the I.R.S. has been costing us lately with them doing nothing about tax fraud. Going to a flat tax would be fair for all and save billions in tax fraud. Why do we give tax breaks to American companies who send jobs overseas? Apple comes to mind as the biggest offender of them all. Every bit of their products are made in China. These name products should be made here with the best American workers and materials,instead of the shoddy and expensive,overseas manufacturer. I also believe we taxpayers should stop paying medical bills for people with self-inflicted medical problems. PBS is worth our tax money and is a drop in the bucket compared to other government spending.

C M Y K Campbell explained. Early voting also opened on Saturday and will run through next Saturday. The locations will be the same as always, in the city council chambers in Avon Park, at the Lake Placid Town Hall and at the Government Center in Sebring. Some people have been coming in to Campbells offices in the Government Center to cast their ballots in person. They mostly want to make sure it goes into the machine, Campbell explained. There are some folks who think that we send our ballots out of the country to be counted and of course we dont we count them right here. There have not been many unusual incidents in this years elections, however, Campbell revealed that one of those official-looking letters informing certain voters that their citizenship may be in question has surfaced in Highlands County. It came in to the Avon Park area, he said. We got it Friday. Luckily the person saved all the paperwork, letter and all. Campbell urged anyone receiving such a missive to save it and call his office so it may be turned over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation e have steps to follow so they need to call us, he said. The letter is written on what appears to be a replica of a supervisor of elections letterhead with a flag and eagle It bears the name of the local supervisor of elections on it and says questions have arisen about the persons eligibility to vote. There are instructions and warnings both in English and in Spanish The letters arent signed and thats what looks fishy Campbell said. He described it as a scare tactic but against who is not clear, as they apparently go to citizens of both parties. Investigators from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement, who also are working on the case said it appears at least some of the missives actually had been postmarked in Seattle, Wash. I had hoped we wouldnt have any, Campbell said This will be Campbells last election after serving four terms in office. He was elected in 1996 when his then-boss Jimmy Whitehouse retired. I worked 11 years for Jimmy and another 11 years at the property appraisers office before that, Campbell said. I just figured it was time to retire. In any case, it appears that Campbell will go out with a bang. He described this years elelction as a good one. In addition to redistricting, there are lots of candidates and issues on the ballot including Florida constitutional amendments and merit retention for judges. Ill be glad when this ones over, he said. Im hoping there wont be a recount required. ny last week, BPsaidit wouldend its pursuit of com-m ercial ethanol production in the United States entirely andinstead, refocus its U.S. biofuels strategy on researchand development asw ell as licensing its technology. Given the large and growing portfolio of investment opportunities available to BPg lobally, we believe it is in the best interest of our shareholders to redeploy the considerable capital required to build this facility into otherm ore attractive projects, said Geoff Morrell, BPvice president of communications. I t is not the first suchcancellation ofbiofuel manufacturing in the industry. ShellO il recently announced itsdecision to back out of a s imilar commercial-scale plant in Canada. Thatone was intended to m ake ethanol from straw and plant waste. T he decision comes as a blow to local job creation. Something desperately needed inHighlands County, which registered aS eptemberunemploymentnu mberof 9.2 percent. To say the least it was disappointing, said Eva Cooper, interim executived irector of the Highlands County Economic D evelopment Commission. e need skilled jobs and this was to bring in 150p lus. Cooper said the Thursday announcement came as a surprise to the local BPleadership and local employees as well. They found out about the same time we did, she said. Paul McGehee, chairman of the EDC, similarly was shockedand stunnedby thea nnouncement. Naturally we are disappointed by this11th hour decision.This one was so close, there was some basici nfrastructure in the works and someengineering had been done. Our hearts go out to the employees and familes thata lready are here. Cooper reported that even the BPofficials and workersa lready in the county were caught off guard by the sudden announcement. M cGehee said it was his understanding that BPnow is l ooking for potential investors to finish up the project and pledged EDC cooperation. e need to find out what o ur role could be, such as giving area tours.We will be glad to doanything they need us to do, he said. Quite a bit of time, money a nd effort had been expended by Highlands Countystaff to help the company locate here. In July of last year, the c ountyreceived over $1.6 million in grant funds. That money was designed to start improvements on State Road 70 for truck traf-f ic slated to be drawn by the plant. BPhad applied for tax abatement for their project. I t appears that any new firm would have to start that process from scratch. L ykes Brothers, a partner in the deal, also was slated to h ire hundreds of harvesters to bring inas muchas400,000 tons of energy grasses and o ther material to fuel the plant. The land where the crops are being grown reportedly is under a lease agreement andi s being administrated through a company known as Highlands Ethanol. BPs decisionwas revealed justa week after FloridaG overnor Rick Scott called on U.S. officials to temporarily suspend ethanol requirements in gasoline, saying ethanol production was push-i ng up the price of corn and cattle feed prices. Trade magazines also termed the pullout as another blow to the Obama administration, which sees advancedb iofuels as a way of weaning t he country off expensive oil imports.

H eston added, that despite the problems, more progress has been made in the last three years than had been accomplished in thet hree decades before. He credits City Manager Julian Deleon for making ita ll happen. Hes done a good job, Heston said. The city is stronger for it. T he biggest success, he said, is the annexation of S outh Florida State College. This means, Heston said, that one ofo nly 12 performing arts theaters in the state is now in A von Park. He added that he expected growth to the south over the next 30 years. Annexing SFSC puts the city in thep erfect place to move ahead with those plans, he said. W hile gaining the college is huge, Heston said there was much other progress. We reduced our debt by 43 percent, and the 39 perc ent tax reduction on our business and residents speaks volumes, he said. We have developed business-friendly policies, reduced the cost of utilities a nd garbage collection and started a new recycling system, the first in the county. Using in-house resources, Heston said, thec ity brought water to 700 new customers and facilitated their connections with low-cost financing. eve also paved more t han 20 miles of streets, rebuilt failed sidewalks and put in decorative streetlights. Heston added that the c ity applied and received a grant for $750,000 to implement a housing pro-g ram for the most needy in the community Regarding the current c ontroversy of how to house the migrant farm w orkers who come to work every season, Heston said, I believe in equal treat-m ent, but the city has a responsibility to regulate z oning. I strongly disagree with unregulated and excessive crowding with some of the housing around Avon Park. Most of us, if not allo f us, are well aware of the difficult living conditions f or some city residents. I think the city and the landlords have a responsibilityt o correct this. Finally, Heston said he b elieved in small government. Youve got a wheel too big on the government s ide. You want people to be able to go into business for themselves.

Hurricane Sandy upgraded again S aturday just hours after forecasters said it had weakened to a tropical storm was barreling north from the Caribbean and was expected to make landfall early Tuesday near the Delaware coast, then hit two winter weather systems as it moves inland, creating a hybrid monster storm. E ven if Sandy loses strength and makes landfall as something less than a hurricane, t he combined storm was expected to bring misery to a huge section of the East. An 800-mile wide swath of the country could see 50 mph winds regardless of Sandys strength.

Buying a home andf inancing a college education were two notable examples. B ut when home values plummeted and the cost of a bachelors degree soared intof ive or six digits,those oncesafe investments in your future s uddenly seemed risky or unattainable. Nos a good time to step back and examine the concept of good debt vs. bad debt andw hy,in certain cases,acquiring debt may still make sense provided you plan carefully and dont exceed what you can reasonably expect tor epay. This simple distinction still a pplies:Taking on so-called good debt can help boost your credit rating or allow you to b uy something that will increase in value over time, whereas bad debt often fuels the purchase of items that are disposable,unnecessary orr apidly depreciable. One of the best ways to build strong credit history is to show lenders you can pay off debt responsibly. Youre morea pt to qualify for a mortgage, car loan,or other large debt if y ouve demonstrated sound repayment behavior. Justr emember:Carrying multiple loans or high-limit credit cards could harm your rating,since lenders might worry youre taking on more debt than youc an repay. Student loans. The average college graduate earns $47,422a year,compared to $26,349 for high school graduates ad ifference of $21,073. Using simple math,some calculate the difference in total earnings over a 40-year work life as more than $800,000. However,such estimates dont factor in the crippling student loan debt many graduates face or their inability to find work in a chosen field during difficult times.B ut still,the unemployment rate among college grads is roughly half that of high school grads 4 .5 percent vs. 8.4 percent. College is still a worthwhilei nvestment for many people if they don't go overboard on loans and c hoose a degree with good earnings and employment p otential. Mortgages. Before the real estate crash,homeownershipw as considered good debt because historically,when s omeone finally paid off their mortgage,their home was usually worth much more than the purchase price. For many,this probably still will be true,u nless they bought during the market upswing or are forced t o sell before prices can recover. After all,mortgage interest rates are historically low andi nterest and mortgage points are still tax-deductible. J ust dont buy more house than you can afford. Factor in expenses like property tax,prim ary mortgage insurance, homeowners dues,utilities and repairs and if you get an adjustable rate mortgage,calculate how high rates couldc limb. Bad debt. What qualifies as bad debt hasnt changed since the recession,but budget-conscious consumers arep aying more attention now. Meals out,excessive vacat ions,and unnecessary clothing or electronics wants vs.n eeds all qualify if youre spending beyond your means. Basically,if you cant pay the bill in full within a month or two,re-examine whether its aw orthwhile expense; particularly if you dont have at least six to nine months pay stashed in an emergency fund or youre trying to save for ac ar or home.

Smartsource supporting Wounded Warrior Project Associated PressATLANTA Choosy moms and dads may be packing more PB&J inl unches this winter,when the cost of a jar of Jif or Skippy is expected to fall e ven as other grocery prices rise. Peanut butter prices soared last year after a drought and high heat in theS outheast,where most peanuts are grown. This year,that region got a b reak while farmers in most of the rest of the United States suffered huge losses in the widest drought in decades. F armers are now expected to bring in two-thirds more peanuts than they did in 2011. That could mean a price drop at the grocery store. After last years small crop,we saw p eanut butter prices on average rise 30 percent or more,said Patrick Archer, president of the American Peanut Council. With this years excellent crop,the supply and demand shouldc ome back into balance and peanut butter prices should come back to a more n ormal level at the retail level. A 10 percent decrease on a $3 jar of p eanut butter,for example,would translate to a savings of 30 cents. That may seem nominal,but the impact is greater for food banks and other big buyers. B ill Bolling,founder and executive director of the Atlanta Community Food Bank,said food banks usually must buy protein-rich items like peanut butter,beans and meat. His organiza-t ion buys anywhere from 200,000 to 400,000 pounds of peanut butter each year,depending on the price. If costs go down 10 percent or 20 percent,we can buy that much more product,Bolling said. A big supply also increases the possibility of donations B olling said peanut butter is one of the most popular products at the foodb ank because children like it,its high in protein and it has a long shelf life. Peanuts are already considered a staple of the American diet,with the average U.S. consumer eating about 6p ounds of peanut butter and other peanut products each year,according to estimates from the American Peanut Council,an industry trade group. But peanut butter could become even morea ttractive as strong global demand, high prices for livestock feed and a huge sell-off of cattle and other animals in drought keep pushing up meat prices. U.S. farmers are expected to produce more than 3 million tons of peanuts in 2012,according to figures released Oct. 11 by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Thats a 66 percent increase over 2011,when growers prod uced more than 1.8 million tons. Experts say several factors created t he perfect conditions for a banner year. High peanut prices after last years small crop encouraged farmerst o plant more; USDA figures show acreage was up nearly 50 percent in 2 012 compared with a year earlier. Farmers in the Southeast also got a break in the weather. Spring came e arly,allowing them to plant sooner. Temperatures were generally milder, and thunderstorms in August and September provided some much-needed relief in the weeks before farmersb egan the peanut harvest,which is currently in full swing. Experts also say a peanut variety developed in recent years is boosting the record yields,in part because itt ends to be resistant to disease. In this south Georgia area,we proba bly had as good a growing season as I can remember in a long time,andm aybe in my 26 years (as executive director),said Don Koehler,executive director of the Georgia Peanut Commission. Georgia by far produces more p eanuts than any other state,though the legumes are grown in sandy soil from Mississippi to Florida and north to the Carolinas. Most farmers sell a portion of their c rop at a set price before they even plant,so thell get the higher prices in effect last year for some of their product. Koehler said that should offset any losses thell take on peanuts sold at todays lower prices,although farmers who didnt sell much in advance may have a tougher time. Amid bumper crop, families could get PB&J price break MCT A good peanut harvest could translate t o a big drop in peanut butter prices

The iPad Mini starts at $ 329,well above the $159 starting price for Amazon.com Inc.s Kindle Fire and $199 for Google Inc.s Nexus 7. Both have 7inch screens. The Mini will be just $70 cheaper than the2 011 iPad 2,which is still available.

For those who like to w ork with a stylus,the Galaxy Note II smartphone came out this week. TMobile,Sprint and U.S. Cellular are selling it now.V erizon and AT&T are taking advance orders for shipments in the coming weeks. The Note comes on the heels of Samsungs campaign touting its Galaxy S III phone as its next bigt hing.The Note is even bigger,with a 5.5 inch screen, c ompared with the S IIIs 4.8 inches and the iPhone 5s 4 inches,all measured diagonally. The Note runs the latest v ersion of Googles Android system,Jelly Bean.Tablet rivalsA mazons 7-inch Kindle Fire is one of the smaller tablets with decent sales. Last month,it started shipping an updated version witha faster processor,more memory and longer battery l ife. It also cut the price to $159,from $199,making it far cheaper than the iPad,w hich starts at $399. Amazon is also releasing h igher-end models under the Kindle Fire HD line. A 7inch one goes for $199 anda n 8.9-inch one for $299. Theres also a $499 model that can use the 4G cellular n etworks that phone companies have been building.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE firstname.lastname@example.orgToo often, it is the big play and costly mistakes or turnovers that do the Dragons in. Friday night at LaBelle, however, Lake Placid was the one making the big plays, forcing Cowboy turnoversa nd capitalizing on mistakes in a thrilling 16-14 District 64Awin. Trailing 7-0 in the first q uarter, the Dragons forced a fumble and took over on the L aBelle 40. One play later, the big s trike tandem of Robert Walton Jr. to Ricky Miller s parked again on a 38-yard touchdown pass, catch and run. The attempt at the twopoint conversion failed and Lake Placid trailed 6-0. The Cowboys looked to take control with another score to go up 14-6, and after their defense held the Dragons at bay, were driving again. But Marquavean Copeland stepped in front of a pass and picked it off at the Lake Placid five. Apenalty on the play, after the interception, backed the Dragons up to their own one, giving them both a long way to go and in a risky situation with little room to maneuver. Trying a quick slant across the middle in an effort to create some breathing room, the Walton to Miller connection did just that and a whole lot more. Snaring the spiral at the five, Miller took it to the house, sprinting through and past the LaBelle defenders the remaining 95 yards for, all-told, a 99-yard score. Foster Walker took in the two-point conversion and just like that, it was all tied up at 14-14 at the half. Both defenses locked in at the onset of the third, with neither offense able to gain much traction or yardage. Then a Cowboy mistake gave Lake Placid the lead. On fourth down from their own 30, LaBelled lined up for a punt. The snap, however, sailed high over the punters head and rattled down toward, and into, the end zone. With Dragon defenders in hot pursuit of the tumbling pigskin for a potential touchdown, the punter kicked it out of bounds for an automatic safety and a 16-14 Lake Placid lead. Into the fourth quarter it went and the minutes ticked by. With 2:45 left to play, the Cowboys had one more shot to take the lead back and lined up for a 37-yard field goal. But Chase Griffin burst up through the line to block the kick and all but secure the SPORTS B SE CTION Inside This Section Senior Streak Swimmers . . .3B Florida Prep Scores . . .4B News-Sun Sunday, October 28, 2012 News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Otaysha Smith, left, and Kayla Wilson go for the block against DeSoto Thursday night in the District 10-4A Tournament championship. By BRITTANY WHITTINGTON News-Sun correspondentLAKE PLACID When you come into districts, youve got to be on top of things, explained Avon Park head coach Stephanie Devlin. The Lady Red Devils of Avon Park traveled down to Lake Placid to make an attempt to be District 10-4A champions against the DeSoto Bulldogs, but they were not successful. The Bulldogs swept the Devils in three sets on Thursday night. During season we went four and five games, said Devlin. Getting taken in three is not what I expected. The Red Devils had a slow start in the first set, being down quickly 15-6. Their serve receive wasnt at its best, which was a big factor in the loss. The Bulldogs did not allow the Devils to score many more points before they finished the set 25-12. The second set would start off differently than the first with the Devils coming out much stronger and taking an early lead at 8-5. The Lady Devils serving was top notch throughout the second set. But DeSoto gained a little momentum and took the lead by one at 11-10. Avon Park was not about to just lay down and give up, however, as they stopped the Lady Bulldogs momentum with a six-point run. Aside out for the Bulldogs allowed them to make a fighting comeback and level the score a little bit, being down just 19-17. But the Lady Bulldogs kept Lady Devils downed, prep for playoffs News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE Ricky Miller scored both Lake Placid touchdowns Friday night, snaring passes from Robert Walton Jr. for big-play scores in the Dragon win at LaBelle.

By DAN HOEHNE d email@example.comSEBRING The outer bands of Hurricane Sandy whipped up quite a windy night Friday, wreaking havoc with any and every high school football teams kicking and passing g ames. But the visiting Bartow YellowJackets were able to overcome the elements, as well as the Blue Streaks, in a 247 win at Firemens Field. e just couldnt get anything going on offense, Sebring head coach LaVaar Scott said afterward. One way, were going against the wind and couldnt pass, and then we really couldnt establish the run. The Streaks moved the b all decently their opening drive, getting a 14yard run from Davaris Faulk and eight yards on two carries from Ladante Harris. But an illegal motion call backed them up just enough to soon force a punt. T he defense held on the next possession and a bad snap forced Bartow back and punting from itsown 9-yard line against the wind. The resulting, stifled boot got the ball back to the Streaks at the YellowJacket 28. Again Faulk broke off a 14yard run and A.J. Gayle carried a slew of tacklers for an 11-yard Winds, Bartow batter Blue Streaks Bartow24Sebring7 See SEBRING, Page 4B Special to the News-SunWINTER HAVEN It was a busy day for the Green Dragon swim teams Wednesday, Oct. 24, as they represented Lake Placid in exemplary fashion getting team wins on both the boys and girls sideo f the District 5-1Ameet at the Rowdy Gaines Pool in Winter Haven. The boys totaled 461 p oints to stay well ahead of the 417 tallied by All S ainst Academy, while Avon Parks gents finished t hird on the day. It was between the D ragons and All Saints on the girls side as well, with the ladies in green getting a 391-358 edge for a fourth straight district team title. And of course, a team title is built on strong individual performances, of which there were a slew for the Dragons. To advance from Districts to Regionals, individually, a top-eight finish must be swum. For the relay teams, the first-place finish in each d istrict is an automatic qualifier, while the rest of the field is selected from the best times from all the meets. Similarly, just the top two divers from each district, with a minimum score of 280, secure aR egional spot, with the next best scores from across the Districts filling in the remaining 18 spots. Lake Placid got one diver advancing automati-c ally as Michelle Hunter placed second with a Lake Placid makes splash at District See SWIM, Page 3B By JAMIE WILLIAMS Special to the News-SunAVON PARK Despite gusty winds and darkened clouds pouring over Joe Franza Stadium, the rain did not show up. Unfortunately for Avon Park, the Dunbar Tigers did show up. Mother Nature kept the rain away, but the Red Devils could not keep the Tigers out of the end zone as Dunbar cruised to a 44-0 win. They are extremely athletic and obviously we use the term creating is their strength. said Avon Park head coach Lee Brown, When you have everything accounted for, schematically, you cannot account for their ability to create on broken plays, which is what happened tonight. With the wind at their backs, Dunbar started its first drive from the midfield stripe. Two plays later, they were on Avon Parks 13. The Red Devil defense tightened up and forced Dunbar into a fourth-and-13 from the 16-yard line. But the Tigers went for it and quarterback Daniel Cobb ran 16 yards for the touchdown. Avon Park prevented the two-point conversion to keep the score at 6-0. The next three plays netted two turnovers as Tigers too much for the Red Devils News-Sun photo courtesy of JAMIE WILLIAMS Red Devil tacklers Lauer Lewis, left, and Mason Jahna, behind, wrap up the Dunabr ball carrier.

After an offside penalty brought it down inside the two, Gayle burst through at the 6:47 mark for a 7-0 Sebring lead. But that would wind up being the lone score for the Streaks on the night. The defense saw outstanding efforts and big plays from the likes of Ezell Gammage and DevonD urham, but Bartow, with a m ulti-faceted running attack, got enough big plays to soon tie it on a run with 1:10 left in the first. The wind then had an effect on the ensuing kickoff, making like a virtual wall as the balls arc suddenly c hanged and saw it falling straight down. The onrushing returner couldnt corral it and Bartow got the ball right back at the Sebring 30. The drive was progressing, but consecutive tackles for loss, one by Durham, made it fourth-and-18 from the 24. But now into the second quarter, and with the wind at their back, the Jacketsb rought out kicker Alex Montes for a 45-yard field goal that sailed through the uprights for a 10-7 Bartowl ead. From there, through to h alftime, the defenses held, keeping it a narrow deficit f or the Streaks heading into the second half. W ith the win again making itspresence known, the opening kickoff of the third was fumbled and Sebring had the ball right back. But the offense was spinning itswheels and couldnt take advantage. Michael Walker then broke a 35-yard run to start the next YellowJacket drive, culminating in a QB keeper by Dimitri Leverett for a 17-7l ead at the 8:13 mark of the third. The Streaks defense did their job the rest of the way, k eeping Bartow off the board. But it was the Jacket d efense that provided the final score, with linebacker F reddie Stevenson picking off a pass and returning it for a score with 5:34 left to play in the game. The first half, we were in it, Scott said. The defense was stout and made a lot of stops in the red zone. Then in the second half, they got one long run, which lead to a score, and that was about it. e had a great week of p ractice and we held down a team that scores a lot of points, he continued. We just have to keep playing,g ive these kids a chance to grow and experience football a t the varsity level and get better I s back on the road next week as Sebring finishes out t heir District 10-6Aschedule with a date at Kathleen on Friday. Continued from 1B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE A.J. Gayle races around the right side on his way to Sebrings opening, and only, score Friday night. Sebring solid on defense, offense struggles Avon Park first fumbled the ball over to Dunbar. The Tigers then returned the favor by throwing an interception on the next play as Avon Park regained possession of the ball. Forced to punt after three plays into the stiff wind, Dunbar rushed the punter, forcing him to punt the ball high and against the gust. The result was, the ball never made it back to the line of scrimmage and actually lost 20 yard by the time it came back down to give the Tigers the ball on Avon Pars 11. Dunbar scored two plays later on a 10-yard run by Cobb up the middle. Cobb actually fumbled the ball after breaking through the line of scrimmage, but was able to pick the ball back up and continue the last five yards for the touchdown. The two point conversion failed again and Dunbar extended their lead to 12-0. Avon Park would be forced to punt again on their next possession after three plays from their own 17 yard line. The punter was unable to handle the snap and was tackled at the one-yard line. This time the Red Devil defense kept the Tigers out of t he end zone, instead settling for a 23-yard field goal to account for the 15-0 lead at the end of the first quarter, which is where it would also stay through to halftime. Any chance Avon Park had of getting back into it quickly faded in the third quarter as Dunbar scored three times. Marquise Bryant scored first for the Tigers on a 7yard run to put Dunbar up 220. Another snap was fumbled by the Avon Park punter and Dunbars Tajze Battle scooped up the ball and ran 30 yards for the second score of the quarter. With the two point conversion, the Tigers led 30-0. Dunbars Jailyn White scored the third touchdown of the quarter on a 24-yard reverse as Dunbar pushed the lead to 36-0. Dunbar added one more score in the fourth quarter when they returned a fumb le 31 yards for a touchdown to provide for the final margin at 44-0. Losing Ryan Dick an d D avid Sims to injury severely hurt the offense. When we had both Dick a nd Sims in the backfield or at least one of them, said Brown. We had a punchers chance. Once they both got hurt, so did our punchers chance. Coach Brown expressed high praise on another Brown, linebacker Dylan Brown. This week we had a package for him that was supposed to be a short yardage and specialty package, said Coach Brown. We had to expand that because of the injuries. I thought he did a commendable job for a guy who is playing linebacker and ran the ball a little bit last year, to take that many reps against a team like that. Avon Park is off this week and then will host their final game of the season against county rival Sebring on Friday, Nov. 9. Continued from 1B AP clawed by Tiger attack Need a Car, Truck or SUV?

I try to defend people who need it,even if other people dont like it. Growing up with an autistic younger brother who wasb ullied by some of the kids at school,Rodriguez often found herself sticking up for him. Because her father worked long hours and herm other didnt speak English, Rodriguez would often miss her classes to talk to hist eachers and counselors about what was happening. It was hard sometimes,R odriguez said. He wouldt say anything to our pare nts when he got picked on. Even though the other kids were mean to him,he didntw ant them to get in trouble, so he was more comfortable t alking to me about it. I took care of him a lot. After a couple of her family members became ill and hospitalized,Rodriguez real-i zed she had a desire to take care of people,and it extende d out to others,not just to her family. I wanted to help other people too,especiallyt hose who maybe needed a little extra.But Rodriguez w as never comfortable asking for help for herself when she needed it. I was scared t o ask. I was afraid people might think my questions were stupid. Then,when she was a junior in high school and a stu-d ent in SFSCs Career A cademy,she learned about SFSCs Panther Youth Partners (PYP didnt really make good grades then,Rodriguezs aid. I wasnt interested in studying. But it sounded like a good opportunity to learn job skills and help motivate me to do better in my class-e s. SFSCs Panther Youth Partners is a federally funded workforce program that offers services to studentsa ges 16-21 that help them gain skills to obtain employment. The services includea cademic support,financial aid and financial literacy advising,career developmenta ssistance,personal,academic and career counseling, j ob shadowing,and employability skills workshops. The program also works in con-j unction with agencies like the health department,DrugF ree Highlands,the Teenage Pregnancy Prevention Alliance,Ridge Area Arc, and the Heartland Workforce to provide students instruc-t ion on topics such as health awareness,drug and pregn ancy prevention,table etiquette,and job interviewing and resume skills,as well asv olunteer and job shadowing opportunities. Students also t ravel to a Florida university every year,which for many is the only opportunity they h ave to visit a university and experience what college life is like. Many of our students have barriers,said EddieC uencas,program specialist, P anther Youth Partners. Some are economical,some a re family related,but they are all things that have taken them off track. Panther Y outh Partners provides resources these students otherwise might not get to help them set goals and focus on what it is they want toa ccomplish. W ith the help of a mentor, which every PYP student m eets with once a week, Rodriguez learned how to set goals for herself to improve h er grades,and the volunteering and job shadowing opportunities the program offered helped her decide what career path she wantedt o focus on. I didnt know w hat I wanted to do with my life,so my job shadowing was very beneficial,she said. You get to try different careers,and if you dontl ike one,you can try something else. It helps to know if something is for you or not.After completing her job shadowing at a generalw alk-in clinic where she assisted in taking patients vital signs,logging their chief complaints,and setting up the patient rooms for then urse practitioner,Rodriguez realized she wanted to be a nurse. P anther Youth Partners also presented Rodriguez with another opportunity shef ound invaluable. She wrote a speech about bullying,and d uring the programs annual etiquette banquet,held at the Hotel Jacaranda,Rodriguezw as able to give her speech to her peers as well as some s chool board members. I was nervous but happy that PYP gave me the opportunity to bring some awareness and to talk to people,espe-c ially some school officials, about the subject of bullying a nd how it affects so many kids. I never would have had the opportunity or the confi-d ence to do something like that before. E ven after completing the program,Rodriguez continues to use many of the skills s he acquired. I applied what I learned through the resume and job interview workshops to the job I have now. I took notes in those workshopsa nd then went job hunting. I w as surprised at how much o f it was the same; they asked all of the same ques-t ions,and everything they told us to be prepared forw as true. I also had a job interview where I had to have lunch with the interviewers,so I was grateful f or all of the etiquette skills P YP taught me. It helped me make a better impression. R odriguez is now a firstgeneration high school gradu ate,on her way to becoming a first-generation college graduate,and hopes to enroll in SFSCs Associate Degreei n Nursing program. I was never really sure what Iw anted to do. I never thought I would have the grades for the Associate Degree in Nursing program, but PYP motivated me to do better. It helped me set goalsa nd reach them,and it h elped me to not be afraid to ask others for help. Now I k now that no question is stupid. I would tell anyone considering the program, Whatever your situation is, take advantage of whats at y our doorstep.

Seeds from the pumpkin family haveb een found in Mexico dating back to 7000 to 5500 B.C.P umpkins have been referred to in various ways for many centuries. The name pumpkino riginated from the Greek word Pepn,which means large melon. From that,thew ord was changed again by the French,English and finally the Americans until itc ame to be known as pumpkin. P erhaps one of the most widely known uses for the pumpkin is the carving of thej ack-o-lantern for Halloween. These eerie looking globes a re simply hallowed out pumpkins with a carving on the flesh allowing candle light to flow through. They have been named after thes trange light that flickers over peat bogs,called ignis f atuus or will-o-the wisp in English folklore or jack-olantern as we know it today. The tradition of the jack-ol antern began in Scotland and Ireland. Originally these unique lanterns were carved from turnips. They were placed on the door steps ont he eve of Halloween to ward off evil spirits. A treat would be offered to appease the roaming spirits so they would not play a trick on the resi-d ents or their livestock. Once the tradition came to the United States,pumpkins became the fruit of choice due to their availability ands ize. Britain and Ireland have a long tradition of carvingl anterns from vegetables. The term jack-o-lantern first appeared in 1837 to describeo ne of these vegetable lanterns. Later in 1866,the t erm became associated with the Halloween lantern. But pumpkins have much m ore to offer than scary faces that glow.The seeds of the f ruit,also known as pepitas, are edible. Most of the seeds are covered with a white husk and may be roasted for a popular treat. They are ane xcellent source of protein, zinc,copper and magnesium. T he oil from the pumpkin is produced from the seeds. Because the flavor is very s trong,it is generally mixed with other types of oil when used for cooking. In Europe, it is considered a delicacy and is used for making pump-k in soup,vanilla ice cream and potato salad. The pumpk in seeds oil contains oleic and alpha-linolenic acids. The flesh of the pumpkin i s very versatile and is also used in cooking. Most of us have tasted pumpkin pie, w hich is one of the many dishes that can be created from the fruit. The flesh can be baked,boiled,steamed or roasted to make a variety ofd ishes. Canned pumpkin is recommended for some pets t hat have specific health problems. It is high in fiber and aids in the digestivep rocess. Raw pumpkin is fed to poultry as a supplement to their regular diet and it also h elps maintain egg production in the winter months. When still green,pumpkin is consumed much the same way as squash. The flowert he plant produces is also edible. In Mexico and some p arts of the U.S.,these flowers are a popular staple. They can be used as a garnish orb attered and fried in oil. Even the leaves are eaten in many areas of the world. With all these uses,its no w onder that pumpkins are one of the most popular crops in the U.S. and 1.5 billion pounds are produced each year. They are a warm weath-e r crop and are generally planted in July. Enjoy your pumpkin this fall season and maybe try some roasted seeds or pumpkin soup!Pumpkin triviaPumpkins range in size from less than a pound to over 1,000 pounds. The largest pumpkin pie ever made was over five feet in diameter and weighed over3 50 pounds. It used 80 pounds of cooked pumpkin, 3 6 pounds of sugar,12 dozen eggs and took six hours to bake. Pumpkins were once recommended for removing f reckles and curing snake bites. The largest pumpkin ever weighed 1,140 pounds. Pumpkins are 90 percent w ater. Corine Burgess is and E nvironmental Specialist for t he Highlands County Parks a nd Natural Resources D epartment. Pumpkins are good for more than jack-o-lanterns News From The W atershed Corine Burgess M etro Pumpkins are traditionally used to make jack-o-lanterns, but other vegetables have also b een used.

Really,truly by yourself. Just you and your thoughts no cell phone,no tablet,no laptop. M any of us crave that kind of solitude,though in an increasingly wired world,its a rare commodity. We check texts and emails,and update our online status,at anyh our when were lying in bed or sitting at stop lights or on trains. Sometimes,we even do so when were on the toilet. We feel obligated,yes. But were a lso fascinated with this connectedness,constantly tinkering and checking in an obsession thatss tarting to get pushback from a small but growing legion of tech users who are feeling the need tou nplug and get away. What might have felt like an o bligation at first has become an addiction. Its almost as if we dont know how to be alone,or we area fraid of what well find when we are alone with ourselves,says C amille Preston,a tech and communication consultant based in Cambridge,Mass. s easier to keep doing,than it is to be in stillness. O ne could argue that,in this economy,its wise to be constantly w ired to stay on top of things, to please the boss. Preston knows people who get up in the middle oft he night to see if their boss has sent them an email. B ut she and others also see more hints of limit-setting going on,this movement of solitude-seekers with r oots in the technology industry, ironically enough. When I think about truly disconnecting,I look to my truly techy friends,says Cathy Davidson,a Duke University pro-f essor who co-directs the schools PhD Lab in Digital Knowledge. Those friends,she says,take long,unwired vacations and set way messagestelling people tow rite back after they return. And they stick to it,Davidson says, wishing she could do the same. Theve come up with a socially acceptable convention for theiro wn absence from the world of technology and everybody recognizes it. One organization called Reboot has started the Sabbath Manifesto,a call to unplug one day a week to find solitude or to simply take a day of rest with family and friends. B igger corporations,some outside the tech industry,are starting to catch on to this type of limit-set-t ing. To encourage work-life balance, V olkswagen shuts off mobile email in Germany 30 minutes after employeesshifts end and turns itb ack on 30 minutes before their next shift starts. G oogle,Nike and the Huffington Post,among others,provide space for employees to take naps,or to meditate. The idea is that employees who take time to themselves tor eenergize will be more productive. John Cacioppo,a University of C hicago psychologist,thinks there might just be something to that. He has spent much of his career t ackling the topic of loneliness and isolation,which researchers have p roven can affect humans adversely,all the way down to gene expression. Feeling ignored sparks feelings of loneliness,says Cacioppo, director of the University of Chicagos Center for Cognitive and S ocial Neuroscience. But getting away,he says thats the opposite of being lonely. Its time that you take by choice, C acioppo says. So while the cognitive effects are still being studied, h e says its very likely that that type of solitude is good for the brain. Dan Rollman had little doubt of that when he and a few others fromR eboot,a group of Jewish thought leaders,gathered in 2009. Thats w hen they created the Sabbath Manifesto,inspired by the traditional Jewish sabbath,but aimed atp eople from any background who are encouraged to unplug one day any day of the week. The idea came to Rollman when he found himself craving a simpler t ime,when stores closed on Sundays and life slowed down. I knew I wanted a day of rest, says Rollman,who is CEO of the c ompany RecordSetter.com. The Manifesto described as a creative project designed to slow down lives in an increasingly hectic world has 10 principles.T hey are suggestions ranging from void technologyand connect w ith loved onesto get outside, drink wineand find silence. To help with this,the organization has created The Undo List an email that arrives Friday a fternoons with ideas for conversation topics,readings,local outi ngs and creative endeavors to ease the time away from technology and help make the day better.Therea lso are specific activities for subscribers in New York,Los Angeles a nd San Francisco. Rollman himself avoids doing work on Saturdays,whenever he c an,and often unplugs altogether then and encourages his employees to do the same. Theres a huge sense of relief, Rollman says. It is a liberating feeling to walk out of ones doora nd not have your cell phone in your pocket. Leah Jones,a 35-year-old Chicagoan,hasnt gone quite that far. B ut she has cut back,turning her cell phone to silentmode from 11:30 p.m to 6 a.m. and putting it away when she goes out. Im a better friend when I dont h ave my phone in my hand,says Jones,who is 35 and vice president of social and emerging media at Olson public relations. For her,solitude might simply be s itting home and watching a few episodes of TV. I might tweet while I watch it, b ut its a perfectly acceptable way to spend an afternoon,she says. Is that really solitude,though? D avidson,at Duke,thinks it is. or some people its dancing a nd blasting rock music,she says. e tend to think of it as solitude, which is sort of a lofty term,wheni n fact for many people,its also about being joyful. The real issue is fun vs. work. And often,she says,her students are better at it than she is. They seem very fine to go off on a bike ride and leave a cellp hone,she says. Renee Houston,an associate prof essor of communication studies at Puget Sound University in Washington state,also finds herselfe nvying a colleague who regularly unplugs. He will drive two hours t o go to the coast just to step away, just have time to think,she says. Shes not there yet but is finding s mall ways to set limits. Her family has a rule,for instance put cell phones away during dinner unless theres a crisis. Can true solitude be found in a wired world? MCT Some people find it hard to break away from their cell phones.
C M Y K By JILL LAWLESS A ssociated PressLONDON British soldiers and military dogs gathered at a British army bar-r acks Thursday to honor a fallen hero with selfless courage,nerves of steel and four legs. Theo,a bomb-sniffing s pringer spaniel who died in Afghanistan on the day his soldier partner was killed, was posthumously honored with the Dickin Medal,B ritains highest award for bravery by animals. Theo worked alongside Lance Cpl. Liam Tasker, searching for roadside bombs in Helmand province,a Taliban stronghold. Tasker,26,died in a firef ight with insurgents in March 2011,and Theo suffered a fatal seizure hoursl ater. Taskers mother,Jane Duffy,says the pair were i nseparable. Shes convinced Theo died of a broken heart. Thell be watching us, and thell be so proud,she said. I just wish they wereh ere to get it themselves. Since 1943,the Dickin M edal has recognized gallantry by animals serving with the military,police orr escue services. Some of these animal heroes:Canine commandosT heo is the 28th dog to receive the medal,awarded by animal charity PDSA and n amed for its founder,Maria Dickin. One of the earliest winners was Rip,a mongrel found abandoned in a bombs helter and adopted by a London air raid warden. He was credited with finding more than 100 people trapped in rubble by Germanb ombs during the 1940 Blitz. Another World War II hero w as Rob,a collie who joined British commandos in moret han 20 parachute operations behind enemy lines in North Africa and Italy. His medal citation said that his prese nce with these parties saved m any of them from discovery and subsequent capture or destruction. Dogs have also been hono red for service in Bosnia, I raq,Afghanistan and during terrorist attacks. After the Sept. 11 attacks, Apollo,a New York Police Department German shep-h erd,received the medal on behalf of all search and rescue dogs at the sites in New York and Washington,for tireless courage in the service of humanity.Winged warriorsPigeonshoming instinct m akes them excellent mess engers,and more than 2 00,000 served with British forces during World War II.

G I Joe,a member of the U.S. Army Pigeon Service, w as honored for flying 20 miles (32 kilometers minutes with a message that s topped U.S. planes bombing a n Italian town occupied by British troops in October1 943,saving the lives of at least 100 Allied soldiers and m any civilians.Heroic horsesUpstart,a London police h orse,is one of three equine recipients of the medal. He was honored for a World War II incident in which a German flying bombe xploded 75 yards away, showering both horse and rider with broken glass and debris. Despite this,Upstart was c ompletely unperturbed and remained quietly on duty with his rider,controlling traffic until calm was restored.A fearless felineO nly one cat has ever r eceived the Dickin Medal.

Associated PressNEW YORK A busin essman who claimed in a lawsuit that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg had promised him half ownership in the then-fledgling company when he was still at Harvard was arrested Friday on fraud charges. Paul Ceglia,39,was arrested at his Wellsville,N.Y., home on charges of mail and wire fraud after an investigation by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service. He was scheduled to appear in federal court in Buffalo later in the day. Authorities said Ceglia doctored,fabricated and destroyed evidence to support the claims in a lawsuit he filed in Buffalo federal court in 2010. In the lawsuit,Ceglia claimed that he and Zuckerberg in 2003 signed a software development con-t ract that included a provision entitling Ceglia to half ownership of Facebook in exchange for $1,000 in startup money for the budding company. Investigators said in a release that Ceglia had replaced the first page of the real contract he signed with Zuckerberg with another page that was doctored to make it appear as though Zuckerberg had agreed to provide Ceglia with an interest in Facebook. A criminal complaint in the case said a search of Ceglias computer hard drives uncovered the real April 28,2003 contract, which Ceglia had emailed to an attorney in March 2004, years before his lawsuit against Facebook.

C M Y K B y JAKE COYLE AP Entertainment WriterNEW YORK You might think that Robert Zemeckis, having devoted himself tom otion-capture animation for the last 12 years,would be thrilled to return to the unpredictability of liveaction filmmaking thosem oments of serendipity when the elements align for something surprising. You would be wrong. In my whole career I can c ount it on one hand,says the director,recalling headaches like having to carti n snow while shooting in Moscow and painting fall foliage in October Vermont. Every time Ive ever been in a situation where,for e xample,its Oh my God, look at this sky! Look at this sunset!never there int ime. We always missed it. Its just heartbreaking. Flightis Zemeckisfirst live-action film since Cast Away,after which he,more than any other filmmaker, advanced the technology ofp erformance capture with movies like The Polar E xpress,Beowulf,andA Christmas Carol. Instead,Flightgets its m ovie magic principally through its performances, e specially that of Denzel Washington,who stars as perhaps the most functional a lcoholic in movie history. As Captain Whip Whitaker, Washington plays an airline pilot who,despite being hung-over,drunk and coked-u p,manages to bring down a rapidly deteriorating plane in a daring emergency landing on what should have been a routine hop betweenO rlando,Fla.,and Atlanta. The crash sequence,a virt uoso set piece made with the digital artists fromZ emeckisanimated films, features the unusual but effective maneuver of briefly flying the plane upside down. The thrilling crash,w hich essentially opens the film,is a kind of carrot for moviegoers who are then lured into a powerful character study of Whitaker as he w restles with his drinking problem while his heroics are called into question. Hesa Captain Sully with demons. Can anything follow this plane crash?asks Zemeckis. But the real spectacle,of course,is Denzels performance. I s one that many expect will land Washington his sixth Oscar nomination. (Hes won for Glorand raining Day.) His per-f ormance is a full portrait of a man who believes hes in control when he isnt,whosea lcoholism is propelled by an inability to be honest with himself and others. A liars a liar,however you choose to lie or however y ou want to numb the pain, says Washington,describing Whitaker. He made a par-t icular choice to numb the pain. W ashington was drawn to the project by John Gatins (Real Steelwhich Gatins had been working on since 1999. The screenplays urrounds Whitaker with an ensemble of characters who a re either challenging him (Kelly Reilly as a recovering heroin addict,Melissa Leoa s the crash investigator) or enabling him (Don Cheadle a s a cocksure defense attorney,Bruce Greenwood as an old friend and fellow pilot, J ohn Goodman as a drug dealer). More than most protagonists,Whitaker often verges on unlikable. ve heard that from people,but thats whats good about a part in a movie, says Washington. People say,What do you want met o get from it?Im like:It depends what you bring to it. S o some may not like him. It was that moral ambiguit y that attracted Zemeckis, who constructs a story that poses questions for the audience about sympathy and acknowledging ones ownf ailings. There have been many films over the years about memorable alcoholics Ray Milland in The Lost Weekend,Jack Lemmon in Days of Wine and Roses and Nicolas Cage in eaving Las Vegas.Asked if he consulted such films in making Flight,Zemeckisr eplies,Only in what not to do. If its just about somebody with chemical dependency,it lets everybody offt he hook,says Zemeckis. s not relatable. But the f act that everybody if you really have the courage to be honest with yourself is f lawed,thats a universal theme. Thats what I was going for. That Flightsoars rather than drowning in the heavyw eight of alcoholism is a testament to Zemeckissurehandedness in rendering personal stories on a big canvas. (His earlier movies includet he Back to the Futuretrilogy,the Oscar-winning Forrest Gumpand Contact.s an increas-i ngly rare skillfulness,partly because R-rated adult dramas like Flightare rarely made in modern Hollywood. Flight,which Paramount P ictures will release Nov. 2 with hopes for both solid box office and Academy Awards attention,was made with a production budget of $31 million. Thats a relat ively small amount for such a film,something that was made possible partially by Zemeckisdigital know-how. The only movies worth d oing are the ones that are risky,says Zemeckis. This i snt risky in the budgetary sense,its risky in whether the audience appreciate ther oughness of it. That Flightstars one of t he few truly bankable,bona fide movie stars in Washington helps. The m ovies poster boasts the handsome visage of the actor in a pilot uniform,surely an attractive fit for a star who has already known the dis-t inctive look of a submarine commander,a train engineer and a Union soldier. Simply the experience of being in a flight simulatora ided Washington in finding his way into Whitaker. Just getting into the cockpit,it was like,ow. I m not going to fly,but I feel like a pilot,says Washington. The actor has little interest in detailing his process,w hich he self-deprecatingly says is just acting. Really, i s not that hard.But Washington,a renowned hard worker,concedes:oud o the homework. ... We should all be that way. Z emeckis calls Washingtons performance breathtakingand up there w ith the greats. Theres no fooling around,the director says of Washington. He is very serious and he does massivea mounts of work,and I dont quite know the process because its none of my business. He writes in rehearsal. Ill be sayings omething,hell be writing. Another actor will be saying s omething,hell be writing. Page 12BNews-SunSunday, October 28, 2012www.newssun.com DR.

But that doesnt exactly make him the most compelling figure to place at the center of a film,at least not in the one-note way in which hes depicted in Chasing Mavericks. This cloyingly familyfriendly production tells the story of the late surfer (played by newcomer Jonny Weston) in 1994,when hes only 15 years old and dares to take on the dangerous and potentially deadly Mavericks surf break just up the coast from his home. Jay wants to conquer these waves ... well, because there there. And he enlists a gruff,reluctant local legend,Frosty (Gerard Butler,struggling to hide his Scottish accent),to help him train. This sets up a Karate Kid-style,mentor-student, father-son formula in which the plucky underdog awakens early each day to complete a series of arduous tasks in preparation for a once-in-adecade,five-story-tall wall of water. Every step of the way is accompanied by the plainly spelled-out reasons why it matters. Nothing is left to our imagination or interpretation. Not a single character or moment rings true in the script from Kario Salem, based on a story by Jim Meenaghan and Brandon Hooper. No one feels like a fully fleshed-out human being,from Jays alcoholic mother (Elisabeth Shue, doing the best she can with an underwritten role) to the pretty childhood friend who would become the love of his life (Leven Rambin) to the tough kid who arbitrarily bullies him. They are all coming-of-age-movie types. But this is most troublingly the case with Jay himself who,in the hands of the angelic Weston,comes off as singularly sweet and upbeat, without an ounce of complexity or even garden-variety teen angst. (Jay Moriarity died in 2001,the day before his 23rd birthday,in a freediving accident in the Maldives.) With his curly blonde locks and big blue eyes,hes consistently eager and guileless and actually a little boring,as is the film itself. Chasing Mavericksis credited to two longtime directors,Curtis Hanson and Michael Apted,because Apted had to step in to complete the picture when Hanson was suffering from some health issues. Some of the surfing footage is spectacular but the film as a whole lacks the kind of tonal and aesthetic imprimatur youd want to see from a respected veteran,much less two. The film features some well-known names from the world of surfing but that doesnt add much authenticity; despite the inherent peril involved in the sport,and in this particular location, everything feels very clean and safe. The surfer dudes dont go around spouting stereotypically idiotic bro slang to each other,but they dont feel like real people, either. Chasing Mavericks feels formulaic and safe Movie Review Chasing Mavericks Rating: R (thematic elements and some perilous action) Running time: 115 minutes Review: (of 4 M CT Robert Zemeckis (leftashington on the set of Flight. NEW YORK (AP T he team behind SEAL Team Six:The Raid on Osama bin Ladenis saying the television movie was not recut to giveas tarring role to President Barack Obama two days before the presidentiale lection. National Geographic Channels CEO David Lyles ays the film was indeed recut but to show less f ootage of the president than an earlier version of the film. I think the end titles run longer than Obamas t ime on screen,Lyle said. The movie has been accused by conservatives of having a political agenda in part because of itsN ov. 4 premiere date and its backing by Obama supp orter Harvey Weinstein. On Wednesday,The New York Times reportedt hat a copy of the film provided to the paper showed t hat it had been recut to strengthen Obamas role. Lyle called the notion t hat two minutes of screen time would affect the election laughable. People that havent seen the movie have decid-e d that its a political event. Believe me,in 85 million homes,a movie from National Geographic is not going to change theo utcome of the election in a country of 300 million, L yle said.

C M Y K Dear Abby: What percentage of womens problems do you think could be avoided if,for the first yeara fter beginning to date someone,they were to use birth control and not marry? Many of the women who write to you seem to be shocked that the men there with do not have sterling characters. But I have never dated anyone who could hide his true colors longer than six months. Im sure the same is true of women,too. Much of your advice to these ladies entails seeking counseling or an attorney, but to the millions of women who havent yet made this mistake,how about a shoutout for prevention? The heart is ungovernable,but people do have absolute power to use birth control and avoid rushing into marriage. Susan in Arizona Dear Susan: Sometimes people marry before they really know themselves,leta lone their partner. But Im all for giving that shout-out for prevention of unplanned pregnancies. According to the Guttmacher Institute,49 percent of the 6.7 million pregnancies each year fall into this category. While some result from carelessness or mistakes in using birth control,others stem from lack of assertiveness on the part of women because they are economically dependent or lack the selfesteem to insist their partner use a condom. Your comment about rushing into marriage until you really know someone reminds me of the saying, Act in haste,repent at leisure.Perhaps it should be amended to,Act in haste, repent,repent,repent. Dear Abby: I once read in your column a list of physical activities and how many calories are burned while performing each one. You included sexual relations. Would you please list those activities and the calories burned for each? Thanks! Looking to Lose Dear Looking:Y ou didnt see it in my column,but here is the estimated number of calories burned per hour for several types of measured physical activity:slow walk-i ng,115 to 200; dancing, 275 to 350; skating or swimming,300 to 600; tennis, 350 to 700; gardening,250 to 300; golfing (18 holes 150 to 225. There are no reliable figures on the number of calories burned during sex because the amount of exertion varies with the individual. Dear Abby: With the holidays coming,d like to suggest something your readers can do with all the free address labels they will be receiving from charities. Many of my elderly relatives have poor handwriting that has led to undeliverable mail from them to me. So I started taking those labels and giving them out to my relatives. They now use them to address letters to me. A t the time I told them I was sending the labels because they showed my official address,the one the post office is most likely to recognize. I havent had any undelivered mail since, and my relatives like it so much that several have started sending me their labels, too. This obviously doesnt solve the problem of getting the labels in the first place, but it does provide a way to put them to use instead of throwing them out. E.B. in Herndon,Va.

I wanted to let you know that we sold our house last night. Congratulations,I replied.I was genuinely excited for them.The Lordw as granting them their hearts desire to live nearer to their family and nurture their grandchildren. Yet,a sense of loss crept into that happiness. Theyw ould live in Texas too far to enjoy fun dinners in e ach others homes anymore. They had been with us f rom the inception of our new church some six years b efore. From first meeting in our pastors home,other stops along the way; and finally to the renovation of our present building,theyw ere there. We led worship and s erved on various boards and committees together. Our lives intertwined witht heirs so this farewell was bittersweet for both s ides. Many preparations went into making their farewelld inner a special event from the food,decorations and the gift of a special scrapb ook of remembrances.There was e xcitement in putting this all together to honor and thank them for their service to the Lord Jesus Christ through our church; and,f or their precious friendship. And,yet,as we happily prepared our farewell,we continued to feel the impact that their loss would bring. How do we say f arewell to those we wish would stay? How do we keep them back from what God isl eading them to? Perhaps taking a look at the word arewelmay help. A ccording to Websters Dictionary,farewell means, May you fare well; Farewell,and may we meet again in happier times.It continues by saying that iti s an expression of good wishes at parting. A nd this was certainly in everyones hearts. But,how does one reconcile the feel-i ngs of loss? Perhaps,we dont. P arting is a part of life. Things dont stay the same. In this context,we allow Gods plans to unfold in the hearts soil of another;a nd,help water and nourish it as a friend knowing that a s God goes with them he stays with us. The Apostle Pauls bened iction in 2 Corinthians 13: 11,NKJV,is a great examp le in letting those we love go with God to their next destination. Finally,brethren, farewell. Become complete. Be of good comfort, b e of one mind,live in peace; and the God of love a nd peace will be with you. As Christians we have the added joy of being forever friends here one arth and in heaven. When smiles and tears comingle, embrace them both in fond farewell. Selah. Jan Merop of Sebring is a News-Sun correspondent.

C M Y K LIVING 14B PA GE News-Sun Sunday, October 28, 2012 A top 10 list of some of Hollywoods scariest moviesBy Joe Holleman,St.Louis Post-DispatchI ve never been a fan of horror movies,and I hate slasher flicks.Im annoyed that much of this genre is nothing more than cinematically hiding behind a door,jumping out and screaming.Of course well jump and our hearts will race. P ure physical response.So what? I prefer movies that slowly push you to the edge of the seat and gently twist your body tight with tension.Freddy,Jason,Leatherface and most zombies (except Days Later) fail to do that for me.This list of scary movies,though, w ould still frighten me:ORION PICTURESAnthony Hopkins in The Silence of the Lambs The Silence of the Lambs (1991Not only is Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) a creepy piece of work,but what about Buffalo Bill,the killer who does sewing with remains of his victims? The final chase,Clarisse and Buffalo Bill with the night vision goggles in the basement is classic. TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX FILMSJeffrey Irons plays twins in Dead Ringer Dead Ringers (1988Jeremy Irons plays twin gynecologists,who are very,very connected. When one tries to break the bond, things get weird. The scene in which one brother displays gynecological equipment he designed may be the creepiest ever. MGM STUDIOSRichard Johnson and Julie Harris in The Haunting The Haunting (1963A classy,nongory thriller,starring Julie Harris and Claire Bloom,about a group of people who move into Hill House to prove that ghosts do not exist. As a young kid,this was one of the scary flicks I watched more than once. UNIVERSAL PICTURESEdward Van Sloan and Bela Lugosi in Dracula Dracula (1931Vampires are the best of all ghouls, Draculais the best of all vampire movies,and Bela Lugosi is the best Dracula. Other good Count D.movies include the silent Noseferatuand the 1979 version with Frank Langella and Laurence Olivier. PARAMOUNT PICTURESAnthony Perkins in Psycho P sycho (1960Norman Bates and Mother are a seriously scary pair,and Alfred Hitchcock created the modern horror movie with this masterpiece. Sure,the shower scene is famous,but what about the mother-sondialogue,and the fact that Anthony Perkins looked just like s omeone you see on the street? WARNER BROS.PICTURESShelley Duvall in The Shining The Shining (1980Jack Nicholson is scary as Jack Torrance,a troubled writer who goes a little funny in the isolation of a Colorado resort during the offseason. Stanley Kubrick directed so skillfully that the movie overcomes an annoying Shelley Duvall. NEW LINE CINEMAKiefer Sutherland,right,in Dark City Dark City (1998One of my favorites sci-fi flicks,a group of aliens Watchers who can change people and the earth to fit their whims. Rufus Sewell,Kiefer Sutherland, William Hurt and Jennifer Connelly star,along with Richard OBrien,of The Rocky Horror Picture Sho fame. TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX FILMSHarvey Stephens in The Omen The Omen (1975Damien was a creepy little kid and the Revelations/666 stuff was pretty frightening psychological stuff. Gregory Peck was perfect as the father. Didnt care for the sequels,but the originals scene with the Rottweilers was top-notch. TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX FILMSSigourney Weaver in Alien Alien (1979Sigourney Weaver,Yaphet Kotto,Tom Skeritt,Harry Dean S tanton,Ian Holm and John Hurt star in Ridley Scotts classic about a stomach-shredding alien. The scenes in the ships bowels,with the monster nothing but a blip on a screen,are tense. W ARNER BROS.PICTURESLinda Blair in The Exorcist E xorcist (1973Maybe its my Catholic upbringing,but this movie still scares me. It may seem trite by todays buckets-of-blood standards,but it b rought demonic possession to the forefront of tons of scary films. The vomiting and head-turning stuff may be funny now,but it wasnt then and Father Karrasmother still isnt.
