Christmas tree fires are more likely to cause a house fire; a wildfire can result from the flames. Richie Bamlet, senior forester and certified arborist with the Florida Forest Service,wants to provide families with a few tips on protecting yourself,your home and your property. One of the first things you can do to prevent Christmas tree fires is to pick the right tree. When choosing a Christmas tree,it is important to buy a fresh tree,Bamlet said. Cut an inch off the bottom or ask the vendor to do it for you. This new cut will allow water to be taken up.

Center Ave. The wall fiasco began in 2009 after the city ordered Mitchelllindos retainingw all be taken down due to an encroachment with the righto f-way after the intersection of Center Avenue and Orange Avenue. City officials and engineers stated that the wall blocks line of sight and couldb e a danger to pedestrians and vehicles. H aggling over the amount of encroachment went on for sometime before the city and Mitchelllindos spouse Kalvin Lindo (whos namew as on the deed at the time of the incident) appeared in c ourt to pound out the details of the botchedproperty survey.

M arrero gave members a proposal for purchase prior to Tuesdays meeting. Council member John Clark stated that the proposal was not acceptable. The city attorney had numerous issues with it,Clark stated. e are happy to have some interest in thep roperty,but a committee would be more effective. I dont want to have the discussion here. Clark requested that the city appoint a committee to discuss the proposal and possible improvements to it before any action is taken. Marrero went on the defensive trying to make his case for his bid on the property. This is a very old building. It needs some due diligence. The value is the main issue.

Avon Park is the only place in the county providing t he service,through a contract with Republic. Wednesday was the second pick-up. Twelve tons of material was gathered duringt he first collection on Nov. 14. Thats a promising total, but citizens can pitch in to do even more considering that one truck can haul up to 10t ons. Single-stream recycling means all recyclable material paper,plastic,metal and glass can be mixed in a single bin. With the new service,all residents have to do is fill the bin and put it to the curb. The bins are bright blue with yellow lids to distinguish them from the black refuse bins. The trucks themselves are a marvel of technology. They run on natural gas instead of diesel or gasoline.

C M Y K By SUZETTE LABOY A ssociated PressM IAMI The mother of a 13-year-old girl who was shot and killed while riding a school bus with her younger sister says the child was funl oving,helpful,a happy girl, according to a statement released by the family. A 15-year-old boy was in juvenile detentionW ednesday charged with manslaughter after police say he took the gun out of a backpack and showed it to other students during the ride to school. Investigators say he fired it once in an apparent accident, striking Lourdes Guzman. Guzman,known as Jina to her family and friends,died later died at a Miami hospital. Feels like just yesterday I saw her running around in her Pamper,dancing and modeling for the camera, mother Ady Guzman said. imes and moments spent with Jina are memories I will cherish and keep in my heart forever. The boy was also charged with carrying a concealed weapon. He waived his right to appear in court Wednesday morning and will remain in a juvenile detention center. He i s not being identified by The Associated Press because ofh is age. Messages left with juvenile division officials and the alleged shooters mother Wednesday were not immedi-a tely returned. Police have not released further information about the shooting. Miami-Dade Police spokeswoman Aida Fina-M ilan said based on the charges it appears to have been an accident. Eight other children, including Guzmans 7-yearold sister,were on the bus but were not harmed. Authorities took the children and the bus driver to a police station to be interviewed. Guzman attended the charter middle school Palm Glades Preparatory Academy. Her sister went to nearby Summerville Advantage Academy. The teen suspect attended Somerset Academy,said Lynn Norman-Teck,a spokeswoman for the Florida Consortium of Public Charter Schools. The principal walked into every classroom to gauge their energy,she said, adding that teachers were notified that all three schools made grief counselors availa ble to students. But it was business as usual. The goal ist o remain a regular schedule as possible,she said. Parents of students at the charter schools contract the private school bus to trans-p ort students. Phone messages left with a number listed on the side of the bus where the shooting happened were not returned. T he school bus was not equipped with video surveillance equipment.

Continued from page 1A Harder Hall offer not acceptable to city council T ALLAHASSEE (AP The Florida Supreme Court says the second driver is not automatically solely at fault in rear end collisions. The justices on Thursday unanimously ruled in two conflicting cases that juries should be allowed to compare the negligence of each driver. They upheld one appellate court ruling that came to the same conclusion in Seminole County case and quashed another in a Palm Beach County case. The 4th District Court of Appeal reversed a trial judges decision that Maria Cevallos,the rear driver,was solely at fault in the Palm Beach case. Cevallos now will be able to argue that blame should be shared by the front driver,who was on her cell phone and suddenly slammed on the brakes.Split decision for immigrantsThe Florida Supreme Court says non-citizen immigrants can appeal their guilty or no-contest pleas on grounds defense lawyers failed to warn them that thed face almost certain deportation. The justices,though, also ruled on Thursday that their decision cannot be applied to retroactively to convictions before a 2010 U.S. Supreme Court decision in a similar case from Kentucky.

Those who voted for Barack Hussein Obama voted for:reckless spending to increase our national debt with entitlement programs; destroy the very moral fiber of our nation with abortion and same sex marriages; disrespect for our constitution and those values that made the USA the envy of the world; gradual destruction of freedom of speech,religion and the right to bear arms and uncontrolled taxation for distribution of wealth and class warfare. We need a crash courseto review our history to remember and then restore the great principles that made us great. Its not too late ... if we the peoplewill stand up. Wake up America. Frank Parker SebringAccurate perspectives and wise decisionsEditor: Making wise decisions often requires high levels of skill or competency combined with adequately understanding all the factors causing the present problem or problems. Making wise decisions is sometimes impossible because some of the facts are not as they appear or those facts are combined with missing,incorrect,or unknown information. Our first views of life are through the eyes of a child,often combined with perspectives of people in our environment. As we get older and our knowledge of life increases,we are constantly forced to modify previous perspectives,making them more accurate to life as we now understand it. When I was young I had some older friends who were always willing to patiently listen to me when I experienced various stages of difficult or complex situations in life. These friends,who were usually business associates,helped by giving me different perspectives to consider. In addition to my personal life,these business associates also helped me in my business life where I usually functioned as a trouble shooting technician on complex transport refrigeration equipment. I am now 72 years old and can no longer communicate with these older friends because they died many years ago. But since we all are only temporary inhabitants of this small planet,I know that our creator who gave us life once is capable and will somehow grant us life again in the hereafter so we can be united with friends and love ones who have pass on before us. I am in good health,enjoy living on this small planet,and consider each day to be a precious gift. But I look forward in the hereafter to being united with friends and love ones and discussing life with them. LeRoy Esler SebringBetter monitoring needed at recycle areasEditor: Wonderful to have recyclers recognized and rewarded. But,how unfortunate you chose to publish a picture of the incorrect way to recycle -putting your recyclables in plastic bags. Taxpayer money might be better spent if Keep Highlands Beautiful folks would occasionally monitor recycling drop-off areas to make sure folks knew what items could be recyclyed and how to so. Joyce Miles Lake PlacidProblems are nothing newEditor: Recently I saw on TV where (a retail chain) is having problems with its employees in relation to hours,wages, and benefits. Nothing new.What I am writing about is the problems I have with their employees. I have been doing my grocery shopping at the local store on U.S. 27 for a number of years. That may be about to change. In the last couple of months,they have been out of a number of items I, and I am sure others,buy on a weekly basis. Not only that,but their employees block the aisles and act like it is an imposition for them to have to move so that a customer can get through to purchase goods. These same employees seem to be poorly trained or informed about where products in their store are. I even encountered two employees today that were arguing loudly with each other in the middle of the aisle. After checking out,with only about half of the items I came in to get,I asked to talk to a store manager.The reason for this Letter to the Editor is that I was told that there was not even a store manager in the store. Mike Bussell Sebring Even as they were doing s o,volunteers were out at polling places collecting signatures on a petition drive to get yet another proposed constitutional amendment on the 2014 election ballot. T he Floridas Water and Land Legacy Campaign is a imed at requiring the state to spend more money investing in environmentally sensitivel ands and important water recharge areas. A ssuming sufficient signatures are collected to get it on the ballot,will voters be any m ore inclined to accept this one than most of the last bunch? Actually,chances are pretty good,especially when you take a look at what happeneda round much of the rest of the nation during the recent e lection. Voters in 21 states had the opportunity to approve nof ewer than 57 state and local land conservation initiatives. O f those initiatives,46,or 81 percent,were approved. All together the initiatives pledged more than $2 billion for support of public lands, parks and other natural areas. From Maine to Texas to San Francisco,we saw voters across the political spectrum say yes to taxes and spending for conservation which helpst heir communities,said Will Rogers,president of The Trust for Public Land. or example,in Maine, voters passed new spending for statewide conservation att he same time they elected an independent to represent t hem in the United States Senate. Alabama voters gave their s tate to Mitt Romney at the same time they overwhelmi ngly renewed a statewide land conservation program, while Rhode Island voted for President Barack Obama at the same time a statewide bond for open space wasa pproved. It seems that voters this year were in a greenframe of mind. As environmental concerns c ontinue to gain traction, there is every reason to believe that in two years Florida voters will be ready to follow the example set in Alabama,Maine,RhodeI sland and elsewhere. But first it is necessary to g et the measure on the ballot. For more information go to http://floridawaterlandlega-c y.org/. A n editorial from the Gainesville Sun. Voters in a green state of mind Fl oridians were merciless in rejecting all but three of the 11 mostly ideologically-driven state constitutional amendments the Florida Legislature placed on this years general election bal-l ot. Good morning, class,says thes ixth-grade teacher. Today, w e have a special guest from the U.S. Bureau of Engraving. Mr. Bob Johnson isg oing to tell us how money is m ade. Feel free to ask questions. Good morning, s tudents,says Mr. Johnson. Did you know t hat in Washington,D.C., and one other location in Fort Worth,Texas,the U nited States government operates one of the largest printing operations in the world? Every day,we print 38 million paper bills! Gee,Mr. Johnson,that is a lot of money,says a boy in the class. But I thought the government makes most of the moneye lectronically these days. That is a very good p oint,young man. Way back in 1913,the U.S. gov-e rnment created a central bank called the Federal Reserve. Its goals are to encourage maximum employment,keep the dol-l ar stable and keep interest rates in check. Then why does the Federal Reserve keep creating new money and dump-i ng it into the economy? ell,young man,sometimes,when the economy is really bad like it has been since 2008 some people think it is a good idea to expand the money supply. ou mean create money out of thin air,Mr. Johnson! In America,the Federal Reserve is now in its third phase of quantitative easing.It is what economists call an unconventional monetary tool that allows a central bank to stimulate the economy. I dont understand,Mr. Johnson. Look,when the economy is bad,the Fed reduces short-term interest rates to encourage people to borrow more and stimulate activity. The Fed has the rates set at nearly zero now,but the economy still hasnt responded. The only option left is quantitative easing. I still dont understand. Heres how it works. The Fed creates money that didnt exist before and uses it to buy up assets from commercial banks,such as long-term Treasuries or mortgage-backed securities. This not only pumps money into the economy,but it causes long-term interest rates to fall further. That gives investors more incentive to spend and invest. But is it working,Mr. Johnson? Over the past three years we have been doing this easing thing, economic growth has gotten slower each year. Look,it is all very complex. Part of the problem is that much of the new money banksh ave to lend is not being loaned. That i s probably because business owners are being selfish and refusing to borrow, i nvest and hire. ell,maybe it i s because its so much harder to get loans,thanks to the D odd-Frank financial reform bill. Besides,dont y ou mean business owners are too terrified to borrow, invest and hire? Every day, t here are lots of new regulations they have to comply with. The costs of ObamaCare are causing them to lay off workers oru se only part-timers. The deficit and rapidly growing debt are out of control,yet Americans just voted for more spending. Well,arent you a regular Chicken Little? Things a re not so bad as you make them seem. There are verys mart economists in the federal government who make these decisions for you. Really,Mr. Johnson? T here are lots of other smart people who worry that all this money creation will eventually cause real inflation when all thosed ollars sitting around start getting spent. Some think we already have inflation. Have you seen the price of food and gas lately? Now,now,young man, the Consumer Price Index shows that inflation is modest. But the Consumer Price Index leaves food and gas out of its calculation! Look, Mr. Johnson,I am only a sixth-grader,but it is awfully frightening that our countrys spending is so much more than our income. Such a worrier you are. Our government has $16 trillion in debt and the debt is growing a trillion a year. How are we going to pay the interest on the debt when rates eventually return to normal levels and our payments soar? It will all work out fine, young man. And isnt all this funnymoney stuff really showing that President Obamas biggovernment policies and spending are hurting the economy so bad that even near-zero interest rates and the creation of billions in new money cant jump-start it? What do you say to that, Mr. Johnson? I say we better create even more new money!

The third-grade teacher at St. Petersburs Westgate Elementary S chool on Tuesday said the systems value-added model,or VAM,is demora lizing and unfair. Its based on student test scores,but Goodwin said her evaluation was based on exams taken by students she didnt teach. The reality is the value-added model h as nothing at all to do with adding,nor does it have anything to do with my proficiency as a teacher,Goodwin said. S he was one of several teachers who spoke at a news conference called by the F lorida Education Association to support the teachers unions call to put the evaluation plan on hold. Republican leg-i slative leaders and a Department of Education official,though,defended the system as being necessary to hold teache rs accountable for student performance. G oodwin said all kindergarten through third-grade teachers at her school received the same school-wide VAM rating of 11.27 out of 50 possible points based on Florida ComprehensiveA ssessment Test scores of fourthand fifthgraders because their own pupils dont take the FCAT. Only 35,000 of 2 25,000 teach FCAT-tested grades and subjects that are used in the evaluation s ystem:reading,writing and math. In some cases teachers said their own studentstests were not used in theire valuations. The teachers also said the system penalizes those who work at struggling schools and that results still a rent all in for the last school year rendering those that have been delivered u nuseful for making personnel,pay and career decisions. They also said the VAM formula is untested,not supported by research,and too complex. Union president Andy Ford unsucc essfully appealed to Gov. Rick Scott to suspend the evaluation system in a Nov. 5 letter. Union says teacher evaluation plan unfair

There are two steering wheels. The left one is usedf or normal driving,the right one is used when picking up the bins. This is because the arms used to catch and lift the bins are on the right-hands ide. The lifting arms operate with a joystick in the center console. T he truck has three cameras,one placed to show the driver whats going on insidet he body of the truck,one on the right-hand side so the d river can see past the lifting arm and one in the rear. A monitor in the cab lets thed river see all three camera angles at once. D ubose said the truck has all kinds of alarms to warn about any problems. The city is divided into three sections,each with itso wn truck. Dubose and his fellow d rivers collect Avon Parks recyclables all in one day. City Manager Julian D eleon came out to look the truck. In addition to looking t o the future and helping business and the economy with the cutting-edge technology,the new system saves the city a considerablea mount of money,he said. Deleon pointed out two ordinary garbage trucks parked in the citys public works yard. T he city council followed Deletions recommendation that regular garbage be picked up only one day a week. When residents recycleo n Wednesday,most of the bulk is removed from the trash,meaning one regularg arbage sanitation collection a week is enough. Your garbage will fit in,Deleons aid. The garbage trucks used t o run four days a week,he added. Monday and Tuesday,and Thursday andF riday. Now they only run Thursday and Friday. T his arrangement saves the city significant money, Deleon said. For example, just one tire for a truck costs $300,and fuel costs werer oughly $70,000 a year. Each city garbage truck cost $ 220,000. By running them only two days a week,their working life will be muchl onger. Additionally,the four e mployees driving the trucks on Monday and Tuesday are now free to work to work on o ther city projects. e have another savings because we save on tipping fees at the landfill,Deleon said. R ecyclable material is transported to Republics n ew multi-million dollar center in Lakeland,where the materials are separated. T he drivers start their day in Lakeland at 6 a.m.,hitting t he road after a staff meeting. When they finish their route, they head back to Lakeland. W hen Dubose was asked when his day ended,he said, when the work is done. Resident participation is the key to success,so the cityi s doing everything it can to get the word out about the s ervice,including visiting schools to get children excited and engaged. T he city invested $190,000 in the plastic bins without c harging any resident. The city is counting on residents to reciprocate. Continued from page 1A News-Sun photo by CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY Kenneth Dubose, who drives one of the recycling trucks, spent a week at school and a month job training. The only problem with the job, he said, is the bits and pieces that fall onto the street as the bin is shaken into the truck.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunS EBRING On Saturday, Nov. 17, history was made at Sebring Firemens Field as the Highlands Youth Football o rganization proudly hosted the first youth Super Bowl C hampionship game ever in S ebring or Highlands County. Additionally, this was the first time any team from the Sebring area had a team play in the Super Bowl in Sebring as the Highlands Eagles had one of their own teams make it to the big game. The Sunshine Police Athletic League (PAL) Super Bowl Championship game began on Saturday morning with teams from the Lakeland and Auburndale area coming to town to participate in the big game. The Eagles organization was very excited about this opportunity and happy they could host such a historical event after only two years of the league being founded. Coach Cliff Howells undefeated 12-0 Junior Varsity team made it to the big game after winning the NFC Championship on Saturday, Nov. 10, in a dogfight of a game against the Auburndale Bulls, 6-0. As the only team representing the Eagles organization, the JVteam would be facing the undefeated AFC Champion Lakeland Hurricanes and had high hopes. This game between the two teams had been anticipated over the last couple of weeks and surely expected to be the highlight of the day. The Eagles took the field with Captains Jalen Williams, Nathan Leonardo, Akem JnPierre and CJ Harris leading the team. With the Hurricanes winning the toss, they chose to defer to the Eagles so the offense would receive the ball first. The Eagles offensive line, lead by Rodrigo Nolan, Jalen Wheelock, Chris Nolan, Michael Healy and Jose Gonzalez, would be crucial in the game. The Eagles struggled to get something going early on with some bad snaps and costly penalties giving the Hurricanes good field position to take an early 6-0 lead. The Eagles dominant defense, lead by Rafael Smith, DJ Taylor, AJ Robinson, Malcolm Jackson, Marquis Hawthorne, Leonardo, JnPierre, Williams and Harris, went to work holding off the Hurricanes into the second quarter. An interception by the Hurricanes, however, gave them the ball on the Eagles eight-yard line. They would score on the next play to extend their lead to 12-0. On the ensuing kickoff, DJ Taylor returned the ball 30 yards to the Hurricanes 45yard line. Quarterback Harris then connected on a swing pass to Rafael Smith, who ran down to the Hurricanes 15-yard line. On the next play, Williams busted up the gut for 14 yards to get it to the Hurricane one. Harris punched it in up the middle on a quarterback sneak to make the halftime score 12-6. Going into the second half, this game quickly became a battle between the 40s. The Eagles offense gained key yardage with Williams and JnPierre getting them down to the Hurricanes 30. But a fumble recovery by the Hurricanes put the Eagles back on defense. Going into the last minutes of the fourth quarter, the Eagles defense came alive with multiple sacks by Williams and key tackles by Smith and JnPierre, forcing the Hurricanes into a bad punt. This gave Highlands the ball on their 30-yard line. Harris threw somewhat of a Hail Mary down the field, where DJ Taylor was surrounded by defenders. Taylor jumped up to catch the ball at the 10 and carried defenders until he was tackled at the three-yard line with 24 seconds left on the clock. Quarterback Harris then ran the ball in to score the touchdown and miraculously tie the game at 12-12 at the last possible moment. Going into overtime in a K anas City tiebreaker, the E agles won the toss to take possession of the ball. The offense got set with the crowd going wild in the stands. Harris ran the ball to the right side, but was met by three Hurricanes causing Harris to fumble the ball. But as the bouncing pigskin caromed into the end zone, it was pounced upon byt eammate Rafael Smith for a n Eagles touchdown. Harris and Jackson then connected on a pass for the extra point to put Highlands up 19-12. The Hurricanes got the next possession and passed the ball on the first play. The ball was tipped in the air by Eagles defender Smith at the line of scrimmage and soon fell right into the arms of cornerback Anthony R obinson in the back of the end zone to clinch the Sunshine PALJunior Varsity Super Bowl Championship. The team celebrated on the field as the stands were emptying with all the Eagles fans and parents joining the team. Pure heart and dedication is what won this game for our team said coach Howell.The players showed true character by coming back from a 12-point deficit and displaying, as they have all season, that our JVteam never quits. Our team motto all season has been One Play, One Practice, One Game,and that is exactly what happened on the field today.. Aperfect season at 13-0, this Eagles team allowed only 14 points to be scored on this all year. The team was awarded the Super Bowl trophy in the middle of the field along with Super Bowl rings for each player and coach. It was certainly a great day for the Eagles organization. The Eagles would like to send out a special thanks to Coach LaVaar Scott, Sebring High School Athletic Director Chris Cook and the Firemens Association for all their assistance in coordinating this event. Congratulations to head coach Cliff Howell and assistant coaches Sonny Harris, Anthony Robinson, Tim Healy, Kurt Wall and Jonathan Sholtz on a successful season, and to all the Eagles JVplayers on their championship and making history right here in Sebring.

Eagles JV squad Super Bowl Champs News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Toryana Jones paced the Lady Devils with a game-high 29 points in Tuesdays win over Lake Region. B y BRITTANY WHITTINGTON News-Sun correspondentAVON PARK The Lady Red Devils of Avon Park hosted Lake Region Tuesday night for a little bit of basketball action over T hanksgiving break. For the Devils, it was certainly an early Thanksgiving feast as they completely tore into the Lady Thunder. Avon Park was in control all night as they beat Lake Region 48-34. The Lady Devils took no mercy as they rolled over the Thunder ending the score of the first quarter 19-13. In the defense of Lake Region, their ratio of three pointers compared to Avon Parks was more in abundance. B ut the Red Devils were still able to double up on the Thunder in the second period, 12-6, for a 31-19 lead at the break. The second half was a much more evened out playing field than in the first. As opposed the their Thursday loss to Sebring, where the Devils started out slow but finished in a flurry, they flipped the script this night as things got a bit sloppy. Lake Region played a part in that by putting up more of a fight, but Avon Park was able to pull back together, stand strong and come out with the victory. e could have done a little better, said head coach Paulette Daley. I mean I know its a win, but nonetheless Ive got to say that theres still a little we need to work on. Which is what its really all about at this stage of the season, working on the little things. Top scorers for the Lady Devils were Toryana Jones l eading with a 29 points, Johntavia Perry with 14 and Connie Dewberry with 12. Able to enjoy the rest of the break with this win under their belts, the Avon Park ladies are next at it Tuesday with a home district date with Frostproof. Lady Devils quiet Thunder News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Gus Owens puts up this jumper from the wing Tuesday night and would lead the Red Devils with 19 points in the loss to Lake Region. B y DAN HOEHNE firstname.lastname@example.orgAVON PARK Things started out well enough for the Red Devils, with Jarviel Hart and GusO wens scores opening up the scoring Tuesday night. But visiting Lake Region would soon take c harge and hold off a late Avon Park rally for a 706 5 win. Just too many misses early on, head coach Marty OHora said. Open shots, lay-ups. We make those and its a different game. The Devils were still holding on to an 11-9 lead late in the opening quarter, but Walter Covington would break loose for seven points and Jermane Roper added four to give the Thunder a 20-11 after one. Avon Park stepped it up early in the second, scoring 11 of the first 13. Tyrone Perry started it with a follow, Jovan Pratt split a pair at the line, Travis Lawton scored on a break, Owens converted a three-point play and Perry canned one from beyond the arc. This barrage offset a Jalen Birdsong drive and knotted the score at 22-22. But Lake Region then ran off seven straight and re-upped itslead at the half at 36-26. That lead ballooned when Jhavares Doster, Covington and Obi Ilonzow orked inside for consecutive scores before the Devils rejoined the fight. Owens hit a baseline j umper and scored on a follow, but each of those s cores were answered, and t he trading of scores commenced. James Jackson hit a Thunder three, with Alfred Brown canning a trey of his own. Michael Rhoden and Owens had back-to-back steal and scores, but Lake Region answered with drives from Jackson and Devonte Hughes. Brown and Hughes then traded threes and Steven Roberts hit a free throw and Rhoden two to finish out the quarter with the Thunder up 56-43. Those missed early shots from the field, though, turned into missed opportunities at the line early in the fourth as, after Perry opened the frame with a fast break score, the Devils went 0-of-5 from the line.

C M Y K much better, missing fourof-four, but did add four baskets to get the lead to 6445. It would have been easy for the guys to hang their heads, OHora said. But they had a real good effort all night and got better each quarter And this was when, rather than packing it in facing the double-digit deficit, the Red Devils stoked the fire. Recarus Burley hit a pair at the line and Pratt was fouled on a lay-up and finished off the three-point p lay. Covington split a pair at t he line, but Owens got three straight scores on fast breaks. Birdsong also hit one-oftwo from the charity stripe, but Perry also got out on the break for a bucket. After one more Thunder free throw, Brown hit two and then drained one from downtown and suddenly it was 67-63 with 30 seconds to go. But Birdsong hit two at the line, Jackson hit one and that would be enough as a last-second Owens follow then became the analogy of t he night too little, too late. Its all right, OHora said. The effort was there the whole way. Things we need to work on are things we can teach. Effort is the key and you cant teach that. But weve got that and well work on the rest.

H ighlands County at night will become a fairy land of light. People often take lad-d ers for granted,but this is a mistake. There are more than 5 00,000 injuries per year serious enough to require treatment in an emergency room or doctors office. Most of how to stay safew hile using a ladder to decorate is common sense. M ake sure all parts of the ladder are in working order and all bolts/screws aret ight. This is one time when making a duct tape repair is N OT a good idea. All ladders have load ratings (your weight plus the weight of thel ights or other decorations). A commercial-medium ladder can hold 225 pounds. A n industrial heavy ladder can hold up to 250 pounds a nd an industrial extra heavy can hold up to 300 pounds of weight. U se the right height ladder as you consider your project. You will need a few feet in height more than the height you want to reach. T he top standing step should be at least two steps from the top. Make sure there are no tree limbs,electric lines or other obstructions where youa re using the ladder. Set the feet on firm level ground. S et the ladder 1 foot away from the building for each 4 feet of height. W hen hanging lights on a ladder,do not lean over to t he right or left. Do not try to walkthe ladder to the next area. Never stand on the top step. It is faster in the long run to get down andm ove the ladder. Wear non-skid shoes and m ake sure your shoe laces and pants cuffs will not trip you up as you climb. R emember,short cuts lead to emergency room trips and a re more time consuming in the long run. Keep enjoying the lights a nd this holiday season by also taking a few simple precautions on ground level. As y ou shop,be aware of parking bumpers. They are so l ow to the ground that they often go unnoticed until one trips you up. Dont carry so many packages that you can-n ot see where you are going. Non-skid shoes are a good idea at ground level espec ially if it has been raining. At home,make sure that c ords for Christmas trees and other decorations are out of high traffic areas. N ightlights are always a good idea,but especially if you are visiting in an unfamiliar house. If you have grab bars at h ome,you may wish to consider traveling with some of the portable grab bars that hold to walls with suction. These are especially useful in the bathroom. I f you have a lot of near falls,you may want to talk t o your doctor about a balance program. These are taught by physical therapistsa nd paid for by Medicare. Above all have a safe and j oyous holiday. Dr. Diana D.

C.A.,Gainesville A nswer: When it comes to weight management,nothing works better and faster than exercising and reducing your portion size. Do that alone and you can down a pound of pumpkin pie with no worries. There is no quick fix to circling the buffet three times in a row,however, there are lots ofinexpensive vitamins and minerals that can assist you in your quest to manage weight. Everything below has scientific studies to back up my comments. Just follow label directions for d osage,and of course,ask your doctor if t hese are right for you: Asparagine:This amino acid found in asparagus increases insulin sensitivity which helps the body store energy in m uscle,rather than storing it as body fat. Biotin:Best known for its beauty properties for hair and nails,this B vitam in boosts metabolism by stabilizing blood sugar (improving glycemic control) and reducing insulin. Fabulous,because i nsulin is known to store fat on us. Zinc:This mineral improves immun ity and protects the prostate,but its very closely tied to leptin. Low zinc reduces leptin,and that could cause you to feel hungry all the time. Restoring zinc couldi mpact leptin and allow you to feel satisfied after one plate of stuffing instead of three. Vitamin A:This vision vitamin just so happens to tell your genes to stop storing all the food you eat as fat! Studiess uggest vitamin A is capable of shrinking fat cells. Niacin:I recommend this B vitamin for people with high cholesterol,but its nice for weight loss because it increasesa diponectin,a natural fat-burning hormone that you make. Chromium:This mineral makes the body more sensitive to insulin,thus reducing body fat and increasing lean muscle; it helps balance blood sugar. Lipoic acid:I recommend this for people with diabetes to help manage blood sugar; it helps shuttle glucose into the cells,and this helps you burn carbs more efficiently. Good for neuropathy too. Magnesium:This mineral improves mood and regulates blood pressure. Low magnesium impairs your ability to convert carbs and sugar into fuel,so it gets stored on as fat on your thighs or butt. Correcting a magnesium deficiency helps stimulate metabolism by increasing insulin sensitivity. It seems to also block fat absorption. Do you think Im suggesting you take all of these? I hope not. Im only sharing options that might work for you. Peopleo ften ask me what I do to stay thin. I d ont take anything above,however,I c onsistently work out. I eat a dairyand gluten-free diet,in fact,I avoid all grains for the most part with the exception of rice since sushi is my big temptation. Hey youve got to live a little,its the spicy mayo I crave! Do you think thats good with turkey? Suzy Cohen is a registered pharmacist and the author of The 24-Hour Pharmacist and Real Solutions. For more information, visit www. DearPharmacist. com.

What works for weight loss Dear Pharmacist Suzy Cohen Snapshots CLEARWATER (AP Pinellas County Commissioners say they want to put fluoride back into the drinking water,reversing a decision made more than a year ago. The Tampa Bay Times reports that the commission met Tuesday,the first time since the election of two new members who ran on a profluoride platform. In Oct. 2011,the commission voted to take fluoride out of the drinking water. The move affected some 700,000 people and touched off a political controversy that pitted dentists and orthodontists against people who feel fluoride is harmful,even toxic and that the county shouldnt pay for residentspersonal health decisions. Two of the commissioners who voted to remove the chemical from the drinking water have since reversed their positions. The commission will next meet on Nov. 27.

C M Y K LONDON (APThe Church of England has much explaining to do following its failure to vote to allow women to serve as bishops,its leader said Wednesday and politicians from the prime minister downward are already demanding action or answers. The governing General Synod blocked the change as the vote among lay members on Tuesday fell short of the required two-thirds majority. Bishops and clergy,in separate votes,overwhelmingly backed the proposal. Speaking to the synod a day after the vote,Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams said any church member who thought there was an easy solution to the impasse between traditionalists and proponents of female bishops was being unrealistic. esterday did nothing to make polarization in our church less likely,said Williams,who had long supported the proposed change. e have,to put it very bluntly,a lot of explaining to do,he added. Speaking in the House of Commons,Prime Minister David Cameron urged the church to resolve the schism and swiftly approve female bishops. Im very clear the time is right for women bishops,it was right many years ago,Cameron said. They need to get on with it,as it were,and get with the program. But you do have to respect the individual institutions and the way they work,while giving them a sharp prod. Labour Party lawmaker Diana Johnson asked for a statement from the churchs representative explaining what this means in terms of the continuing discrimination of having only men eligible to sit in the House of Lords as bishops. A rcheology is a friend of truth. Much written and disputed history has been documented as true by the spade/shovel. Sargon,A ssyrian king,is mentioned once in the Bible (Isaiah 20:1). Critics claimed no such king ever lived until the spade dug up his annals witho verwhelming evidence of his rule of 15 years (721-706 BC). The same is true regarding information in helping us to understand Who is Allah? The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob was YHWH( Yahweh i.e. self existent one). Jehovahis a combination of the consonantsY HWH and the vowels from adonai(LordAllah is u nique to Muslins and used only by them in any language. H istory and archeology reveals the Sumerians in A rabia worshipped a moongod and their symbol was the crescent moon. A temple to a moon-god was discovered in Palestine and alsoi nscriptions on walls and rocks in northern Arabia s howing the dominant religion was the cult to the moon-god. Arabs wor-s hipped 360 gods at the Ka'ba,temple of the moong od,in Mecca. The city was built for a shrine for the moon-god and was the most s acred site of Arabian paganism. The black stone/holy stone was a holy place for pre-Islamic pagan Arabs. Worshippers were to prayt oward Mecca and make pilgrimages to the city. Muslins claim that the Kaba is the place of worship which God commanded Abraham andI shmael to build over four thousands years ago. This b lack stone has been kissed by Muhammad and Muslinss ince his time. The moon-god was alilah(the god to Allah in pre-Islamic times. S o Allah was not a new name for God.This name did not pass from Jews/Christians to Muslins. When you compare the G od of the Muslins,Allah, with Yahweh,the God of Abraham,Isaac and Jacob, there is great disparity in their teachings. Of course,the information for this comparison comes f rom the Quran (Koran) and the Bible. JESUS:The Messiah, Jesus,son of Mary,is only an apostle of God,and hisW ord which he conveyed into Mary,and a Spirit proceeding from himself. Believe therefore in God and his apostles,and say not, Three:(there is a trinity Forbear it will be better for you. God is only one God.F ar be it from His glory that he should have a son. (Quran 4:169And theW ord became flesh and dwelt among us,and we b eheld His glory,the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,full of grace andt ruth(John 1:14 JESUSDEATH & RESU RRECTION:That they said (in boaste killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the apostle of God; but they killed him not,nor cru-c ified him,But so it was made to appear to them,and t hose who differ therein are full of doubts,With no (certain) knowledge,But onlyc onjecture to follow,for of a surety they killed him not:N ay,God raised him up Unto Himself; and God is exalted in power,wise(Ouran 4 :157-58). Moreover, brethren,I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you,which also you received and in which you stand,byw hich also you are saved,if you hold fast that word which I preached to you unless you believed in vain. For I delivered to you first of allt hat which I also received: that Christ died for our sins a ccording to the Scriptures, and that He rose again thet hird day according to the Scriptures(1 Corinthians 15:1-4). SALVATION:or,if one goes in search of a Deen (aw ay of life) other than Islam (self-surrender unto Godit will never be accepted from him (or herand in the life to come he (or shea mong the lost(Quran 3:85). Jesus said unto him, I am the way,the truth,and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me (John 14:6 TREATMENT OF ENEM IES:Fight in the way of Allah against those who fight against you,but begin not h ostilities. Lo! Allah loveth not aggressors. And slay them wherever ye find them, a nd drive them out of the places whence they drove you out,for persecution is worse than slaughter. And fight not with them at the Inviolable Place of Worship until they first attack you there,but if they attack you (there is the reward of disbelievers( Quran 2:190,191). You have heard that it was said, You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.But I s ay to you,love your enemy, b less those who curse you,do good to those who hate you,a nd pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute y ou(Matthew 5:43,44). Life is filled with decisions each day that affect self and others. Some may seem to be trivial and others are life changing such as the one Joshua put before the children of Israel:Now there-f ore,fear the Lord,serve H im in sincerity and in truth, and put away the gods whichy our fathers served on the other side of the River and in E gypt. Serve the Lord. And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord,choose for your-s elves this day whom you will serve,whether the gods which your fathers servedt hat were on the other side of the River,or the gods of the Amorites,in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house,we will serve the Lord(Joshua 24:14,15 F rank Parker can be reached at email@example.com/.

The woman must have forgotten it herself, because she did not do a thing to jog the mans memory. T hat night,he was reading the paper and saw a story about a big,birthday party. Suddenly,he rememb ered her birthday. He started thinking about their years together,the heartaches and struggles they had been through,and what a fine wife she had been to him. She had grown r ather hard of hearing over t he last few years,so he leaned toward her and y elled,ife,Im proud of you.She sat up straight in her chair. That aint nothing!she said. Im tired of y ou,too! A lthough that lady may not have been able to help her hearing problem,many of us have a hearing problem that we can help. It is called a lack of listening. Most any relationship problem you can find in the world will most likely have t he lack of listening on the p art of one or more of the p arties as a factor in the dilemma. Whether it is a husband and wife,fathera nd son,mother and daughter,or employer and e mployee,we all seem to have a tendency to develop this type of auditory com-p lication. Our hearing problems g enerally stem from our unwillingness to truly listen to what others have to say.M any of us are only interested in what we have to s ay. Because we are so tuned into our own voice, as soon as we are finished talking,we suddenly (and selectively) go deaf! G uess what? We do the same thing with God. We l ike to tell God how things ought to be. We will even tell Him about the mistakesw e believe that He has made and how,if He will only listen to us,we will show Him how to fix them T he only problem with this relationship is that there is one side who thinks he or she is right and another side who actually is,and thats ide,of course,is Gods side. If there is any party in this relationship that needs to close their mouths and listen,it is we. James 1:19 reads,This y ou know,my beloved brethren. But everyone m ust be quick to hear,slow to speak and slow to anger. God talks to us todayt hrough His inspired word, the Bible. When He talks, w e need to hush up and listen carefully to every single word. Then,we need to obey Him without exception,excuse,or suggestiona bout some better way. Remember,there is no b etter way than Gods way, so when God talks,LISTEN! Kevins Komments is presented by the Sebring Parkway churcho f Christ assembling at 3800 S ebring Parkway, Sebring, FL 33870.

C M Y K By DAVID GERMAIN AP Movie WriterThe man who made Psychowas no lightweight,though he kind of comes off that way in Hitchcock. Starring Anthony Hopkins as Alfred Hitchcock and Helen Mirren as his wife and collaborator,Alma, Hitchcockputs a featherlight yet entertaining touch on the behind-the-scenes struggle to make the mother of all slasher films. Hitchcocks very dark side gets superficial treatment as the film offers the cinematic equivalent of psychobabble to explore the directors notorious gluttony,sexual repression and idolization of his leading ladies. Though shallow, Hitchcockhas a playful quality that often makes it good fun,its spirit of whimsy a wink that the filmmakers know there riffing on Hitchcocks merrily macabre persona and not examining the man with any great depth or insight. Hitchcockis a promising move into dramatic filmmaking for director Sacha Gervasi after his 2009 documentary Anvil:The Story of Anvil,a chronicle of heavymetal wannabes who never quite made it. With screenwriter John J. McLaughlin adapting Stephen Rebellos book Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho, Gervasi spins a nimble tale of a genteel yet volatile genius turning water into wine as Hitchcock transforms a tawdry story inspired by murderer Ed Gein into high art and one of the scariest movies ever. Fresh off a big success with 1959s North by Northwest,Hopkins Hitchcock lapses into the sort of funk that repeated itself throughout his career as he floundered about in search of his next film. He defies the expectations of Paramount executives and his own colleagues,Alma included,when he settles on Robert Blochs novel Psycho,the Gein-influenced story of Norman Bates,a soft-spoken mamas boy whose creepy double life leads to multiple murders. Alma thinks its a cheap story thats beneath her husband. Hitchcock thinks the spare tale its savage violence told with subtle suggestiveness to mollify Hollywoods puritanical censors can leave fans screaming in their seats. Hitchcockstrains to play up marital strife between the two as Alma feels tempted by a writing colleague (Danny Huston), while Alfreds frustrated fancies continue over his long string of Hitchcock blondes in this case,Psychocostars Janet Leigh (Scarlett Johansson) and Vera Miles (Jessica Biel standing with Grace Kelly among his greatest fixations. The film also strays into Freudian fantasies as the specter of Gein himself (Michael Wincott) pops up to help Hitchcock work through his issues. These moments are clunky devices that offer no understanding of Hitchcock and his demons; at best,there good for a chuckle here and there. And while the filmmakerat-work moments are similarly frivolous,its wicked fun watching Hopkins Hitchcock as cruel taskmaster,using whatever figurative cattle prods he can find to trick or cajole what he wants out of his actors. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, November 23, 2012Page 9B FAIRMONT CINEMA; 1.736"; 6"; Black; movie listings; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 5 5 2 2 7 7 6 6 DIVERSIONS D ear Abby: My wife died a few years ago. I live alone and have been a bachelors ince then. Old friends have been kind enough to pass along the names and phonen umbers of widows or divorcees they felt would be of interest to me.I have taken several of them out to dinner. Some were interesting,but foro ne reason or another we didnt have enough chemi stryfor me to call them for another date. What is the considerate t hing to do after having just one date? Should I call t he person and say it was pleasant,but ...? Should I not call at all and move on? I feel guilty at times for not following up withs ome comment,as they were mostly nice women. A ny suggestions about how to handle these situations would be welcome. M iami Widower Dear Widower: C onversations such as this can be awkward,which is why many people avoid h aving them. Because you feel you shouldsay something,a way to handle it would be to say you hada nice time,but you are s till grieving and are not ready for a relationship. Chemistry is supposed to be mutual,so dont be surprised if some of thew omen arent interested in pursuing a relationship w ith you,either. Thats life. Dear Abby: I work in a store that is popular with teenagers. Every Christmas,parents andg randparents come in here with absolutely no clue what to get. Asking Whats popular right now?doesnt help.( Whats cool to one teen may be lame to another.) d like to offer a couple of tips to help clueless relatives select the right gift for their teen. 1) Bring a recent photo of her or him. We can tell a lot by looking. It will provide hints as to what kind of gift they may like. 2) Copy a list of their likesfrom Facebook and bring it with you. It may mention books,music, movies or other interests t hat will make it easy to track down something they would enjoy. I hope this helps s ome of your readers.

Widower looks for right way to say thanks but no thanks Dear Abby DreamWorks Animation The Sandman, The Easter Bunny, Nicholas St. North, The Tooth Fairy and Jack Frost in DreamWorks Animations Rise of t he Guardians. B y TODD McCARTHY The Hollywood ReporterA very odd assortment of mythical childhood figures, some of them afflicted withs evere emotional insecurities and inferiority complexes, a re thrown together as an unlikely set of action heroes in The Rise of theG uardians,an attractively designed but overly busy and derivative mishmash of kidf riendly elements. A sort of Justice League o r Avengers equivalent made up of the fearsome team of Santa Claus,the Easter Bunny,the Tooth Fairy,the Sandman and Jack Frost,thisf inal DreamWorks Animation production set to be distributed by Paramount will play in a predictably agreeable and profitable fashion to small fry but will skew young despite the pres-e nce of an excellent voice cast. The world premiere t ook place Oct. 10 at the Mill Valley Film Festival in advance of the Nov. 21 commercial bow. Based on the book series Guardians of Childhood by William Joyce,as well as on the authors short film The Man in the Moon,the script by David Lindsay-A baire (Robots,Rabbit Hole) plays fast and loose with these legendary fixtures of childhood,attaching to them all sorts of neuroses,f eelings of inadequacy and the sense,or threat,of being i gnored. Some might find this tack delightfully mischievous,but its just as easy to reject as ridiculous the notion that Jack Frost af ree spirit very much like Peter Pan who can fly around anywhere he wants suffers from an emotional trauma he suffered hundredso f years earlier. P erhaps the most readily amusing of the gang is S anta,or,as he is more geographically named here, North. A muscular power-h ouse rather than a fatso, North has heavily tatted f orearms and,as wonderfully voiced by Alec Baldwin, sports a distinctive Russiana ccent not inappropriate to the proximity of that country to his palatial mountainside w orkshop. Also gathering here are the rangy and rasc ally E. Aster Bunnymund (an excellent Hugh Jackman),the hummingbirdlike Tooth (or Tooth Fairy, delightfully rendered by IslaF isher),the mute and tubby spinner of gold Sandman and,ultimately,Jack (a fine Chris Pine),who has wandered the globe alone for centuries and feels woefully unrecognized compared tot he others because he has no special day or occasion to m ake an imprint on the lives of children. All the same,Jack is hardpressed by North to join in the battle against Pitch (as inp itch black),a diabolical figure (plausibly acted by Jude Law) who,after a long absence,has returned to throw Earth into darknessa nd provide much-needed n ightmares to kids everyw here. As with Jack,Pitchs re-emergence feels arbitrary and generic,while the tall, s neering and stubby-toothed f igure bears far too close a resemblance to Harry Potters Voldemort,as do his m inions,black steeds that d isintegrate into fragments a nd flash through the sky almost identically to Death Eaters. So while Jack tries tos ort out his issues of neglect ( kids in small-town America dont even notice him) and struggles over whether or not to join the others,the battle against the lord of the nightc ommences. Director Peter Ramsey,a longtime storyboard artist making his feature directori-a l debut after beginning with the 2009 telefilm Monsters vs. Aliens:Mutant Pumpkins From Outer Space,never m isses a chance to throw in o ne more roller-coaster-like visual ride to pump up the 3(equalsxperience. But the characters and settings are attractively designed,and the vocal performances have real color and a sense of fun that gently undercuts the t reacle sincerity of certain o bligatory kid-pandering moments.
