Commissioners first will look at a n ew animal control ordinance, which will require owners of dogs, cats and ferrets to have their animals vaccinate d for rabies and for the pets to either display tags or be implanted with a chip indi-c ating they have had their shots. However, there is a provis o that pets might not be mandated to get the inoculation s hould the veterinarian feel that it could endanger the life of the animal. As part of the new measure, people w ould be prohibited from feeding feral animals on public property and those f eeding such animals on private property first would be required to obtain p ermission from the property owner. T here has been some controversy about the practice of feeding stray animals, with the argument being m ade that those who put out food encourage the growth to the stray cat and dog population. I n addition to proper treatment of p ets, the new ordinance includes a pooper scooper provision, saying that when walking pets, droppings must be picked up and disposed of byo wners unless they have approval Commission to wrangle animal issues H ISTORICAL TAX RATES Percentage of income20 25 30 35 40% 2012 2 006 2 000 1 994 H ighest tax bracket Middle tax bracket Bush Clinton 39.6% if tax cuts expire Obama 31% if tax cuts expire35% 28%Off the cliff?Understanding t he fiscal cliff a nd its many i mplications PAGE1B Be bear awareF lorida black bears are on t he move, so be vigilant SP ORTS, 1DLess shopping stressB eing prepared can help y ou trim holiday expenses SP ORTS, 1D B y CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Orlando resident Jerquila Bell, 27, was booked into the HighlandsC ounty jail on Tuesday and charged with three felonies: aggravated battery, kidnapfalse imprisonment and robbery with a weapon. The weapon was a pink metal folding chair. A ccording to Highlands County Sheriffs Office r eport, the story began in Orlando on or about Oct. 22, when a2 4-year-old Avon Park woman visited Bell at her residence there. She was sup-p osed to stay only a day or two, she said. Soon after she arrived, however, Bell allegedly began asking the victim for her food stamp card and for cash loans. The victim refused. Bell became angry and would not give her a ride back to Highlands County. The victim said it wasnt until Nov. 3, about two weeks later, that she was able to leave Bell and find a ride back home. On Nov. 4, Bell allegedly called the victim saying she was in town with some friends and invited the victim to a party at Sierras nightWoman beaten with chair, robbed Bell By CONNIE CASS Associated PressWASHINGTON Sorry, fellas, but President Barack Obamas re-election makes it official: Women can overrule men at the ballot box. For the first time in research dating to 1952, a presidential candidate whom men chose decisively Republican Mitt Romney lost. More women voted for the other guy. Its surprising it didnt happen sooner because women have been voting in larger numbers than men for almost three decades, exit polls show. But men, who make up less than half the U.S. population, always have exercised power greater than their numbers and they arent about to stop now. When it comes to elections, males as a group are more influential because they show less party loyalty than women, who skew Democratic. Despite all the focus on candidates courting Hispanics or the working class, men are the nations ultimate swing voters; theyre why Republican George W. Bush became president and Republican John McCain didnt. Their move away from Obama this year expanded the voting gender gap. It wasnt enough to determine the outcome, but came close. So presidential hopefuls staring into the gender gap in Women won this time, but men are votings X-factor See COUNTY, page 6A See WOMAN, page 6A News-Sun photo by SAMANTHAGHOLAR Shop owner Rosalind Pershan (righte onS mall Business Saturday in Downtown Sebring.

Its normally a quiet and uneventful day for the small business across America as they work to compete with the giant corporations and chains that offer low prices on Christmas gifts. Small business owners know that corporations have true holiday shoppers eager for quick, easy deals (no matter the hassle it takes to get it) by the collars. But small business owners know the value of their merchandise and service. Mid-morning Saturday brought several shoppers to the doors of Downtown Sebrings yearold Mermaids Castle, which also houses Three Bears Antiques under the same roof. Both stores offer a variety of things that definitely can not be found in the Walmarts and Targets of the world.

C M Y K Cpl. Todd Loves life changed in a matter of sec-o nds. I dont remember an explosion, Cpl. Love, 22, told The Unknown Soldiers. One second Im inA fghanistan and another second Im in Germany The Marine was walking in a field between two suspected enemy compounds onO ct. 25, 2010, when everything went blank. When I woke up in Germany, the first thing I recognized was that I wasnti n Afghanistan anymore, he said. Then realized I stepped on an IED. H ad a British helicopter not arrived about 90 minutes after the improvised explo-s ive device detonated, Love may have died face down in t hat wretched, blood-soaked field. It took them five minutes t o find me, and when they did, my legs were already g one and my left hand was really damaged, the Marine said. Love slipped in and out of consciousness as he wasr ushed to Bethesda, Md., for a series of crucial surgeries. H is hand was later amputated. But even as he came to grips with his severei njuries, the brave Marine, who grew up near Marietta, G a., never questioned his decision to follow in his fathers and grandfathers f ootsteps by volunteering to serve. I was working at an Italian restaurant and wanted to do something more mean-i ngful, Love, who joined the Marine Corps at age 18, said. By the time he was injured, Love had already witnessed more violence than most of us will in our l ifetimes. Ive been in so many firefights ... probably close to 40, he said. I couldnt even possibly tell you howm any times Ive been shot at. Going to bed was almost always a challenge for Love during his deployment, as t he young Marines mind was filled with searing images of innocent Afghans being murdered and maimed by al-Qaida and the Taliban. I used to go to sleep every night with a knot in m y stomach ... thinking I could die tomorrow or I may not see my family again,L ove said. Going to sleep like that every night for m onths is not a good way to live. The day Love lost his legs s tarted like any other. The young Marine was leading his platoon from point Ato point B while not taking any unnecessary risks,k nowing that a firefight could erupt at any moment. For those 90 harrowing B y SAMANTHAGHOLAR sgholar@newssun.comSEBRING Discussions surrounding a prospective payment from the city toH ighlands Utility Corporation became a touchy subject Tuesday evening as council members waded their way through legal jargon. The Highlands Utility Corporation requested that the city disburse an annual payment of approximately $100,000. HUC is associated with a number of easements throughout the city limits. Since November 2008, all but two of the easements have been completed. The two final easements, Jackson Plaza and Sebring Falls, are being held up by owners, whom HUC attorneys say havent made the property a priority. Marty Friedman spoke to council representing HUC Tuesday evening, trying to make sense of the somewhat messy situation. The Jackson Plaza easement is nearly wrapped up according to Friedman. Attorney Bridget Grimsley stated that the Jackson Plaza easement is 90 percent done and that a line is currently being moved. The Sebring Falls easement is the only real issue left. Ive been trying to get this squared away but I cant speak with the owner, just their attorney. It may come to litigation, said Friedman. The Sebring Falls easement hasnt made much progress in four years, according to City staff. HUC has been working to resolve the issue since November 2008. City council members were told that a total of $131,922 is available in the escrow account which can be used to resolve the issue, though council members are p ushing HUC to reach an agreement. City attorney Bob Swaine has been trying unsuccessfully to make headway in them atter. The Sebring Falls easement includes a lift station, which may have to be relocated if an agreement can not be made with the property owner. HUC officials were adamant about getting this years payment regardless of the status of the easement. s unnecessary to hold that money when you already have $131,000 sitting in escrow, said Friedman. ou still have $113,000 due next month. We are requesting that you release the annual payment to the HUC. Council members all agreed that four years was long enough to reach an agreement, though Friedman and Grimsley said that several unreturned phone calls, messages and a death in the HUC family caused several unexpected delays. The council encouraged the HUC attorneys to resolve the issues with the project. Money is a heck of a motivator to me, said Councilmen John Clark. Clark also stated that potential litigation may be the only thing that will get the attention of the property owner. Swaine agreed. It appears to me that litigation is unavoidable here, Swaine said. Clark made a motion to retain the current payment as well as to not disburse the payment that was to be paid on Nov. 20. The motion passed unopposed. Council advised HUC, Friedman and Grimsley to make a greater effort to resolve the final two easements. Welcome to the Mountain Top. Have you heard that before? If you are on Facebook, you m ay have been welcomed t o a group of photograp hers called Mountain Top. If youre not on the social media platform F acebook, you still may k now these guys; they a ttend almost every event in Sebring. They are the guys with the cameras around their necks, the guys with long white b eards. Yep, they are M ountain Top P roductions and they are digital historians. Reaching out to the community since 1993, Mountain Top Productions creates digital video, photographic and audio archiving to record community events, c harity events, family events and functions, and slide shows from your photographs. As an M310 Agency, they support local charities, youth activities and church groups, both financially and through community service. They were at almost every C entennial event during f ocus week, and have put t housands of photos on the Internet for all to enjoy all as a free servi ce to our community. T he story of how Mountain Top began and why is something I did not expect to come across. I thought M ountain Top was just a g reat group of people that took photographs as a passion for our great city of Sebring. And although that is partially true, as they do embrace the community that has helped them through tough trials and tribulations, there is so much more to the story than I have space to tell you. You see, Mountain Top founder Harold Conners son, Michael, at the young age of 9 years old, was in a severe accident, and the years following were years of striving to reach The Mountain Top with Gods guidance, love and answered prayers for the Conner family and others around them. Michael, now 36 years of age, continues to do wellhe has locked insyndrome so there is not much he can do and he responds differently to different people. The philosophy of ministry behind Mountain Top Administrations, Inc. is that God leads through obedience to Him, to His work, caring for the orphans and widows, modeling Christian disciples to youth, and honoring in obedience to God, the tithe for missions. Harold Conner differentiates between faith and religion saying, Faith is what we were given; religion is how we live it out. In living out his faith, Michael and those who care for him impact people throughout the comPage 2ANews-SunSunday, November 25, 2012www.newssun.com pub block; 5.542"; 4.5"; Black; publishers block dummy; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 5 5 5 5 5 5 9 9 KAYLOR & KAYLOR; 5.542"; 1.5"; Black; below lottery social security; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 4 4 8 8 0 0 2 2 K AYLOR & KAYLOR; 5.542"; 1.5"; Black; above lottery workers comp; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 5 5 3 3 4 4 5 5 N ov. 21 31924343741x:2Next jackpot $2 millionNov. 17 51419304952x:2 Nov. 14 101219484953x:4 Nov. 23 1617202531 Nov. 22 34293236 Nov. 21 122283536 Nov. 20 1316172834 Nov. 23 (n 7549 Nov. 23 (d 9905 Nov. 22 (n 7569 Nov. 22 (d 4464 Nov. 23(n 066 Nov. 23 (d 408 Nov. 22(n 842 Nov. 22 (d 654 Nov. 23 21719415 Nov. 20 2232333922 Nov. 16 15172620 Nov. 13 611182616 Nov. 21 818243039 PB: 26Next jackpot $325 millionNov. 17 315275859 PB: 20 Nov. 14 810304458 PB: 13 Note: Cash 3 and Play 4 drawings are twice per day: (d d aytime drawing, (n nighttime drawing.

On that first run,12 tons of paper,glass,cardboard, plastic,aluminum and otherm etals were collected. The city council and mana ger deserve special recognition for their foresight in getting the program online W e hope people understand the importance of recyc ling reusable material,especially plastic,which of course is a petroleum product. The more plastic we reuse,the less oil we needf rom foreign sources. At the same time,we understand how many citizens have been discouragedf rom recycling because right now the different materials have to sorted and then deliv-e red to recycling containers, often a distance from home. By investing $190,000 in h ome recycling bins that allow materials to be mixed t ogether at no additional cost to the taxpayer Avon Park has made it easy for res-i dents to become key players in saving the city money. N ot only that,in a world with dwindling resources, turning those that are nonrenewable into reusable materials is simply goods ense. The Florida legislature understands that. It has mandated that 75 percent of a countys solid waste be recycled by 2020 and we need tob e ready.The sooner Highlands County,Sebring and Lake Placid join Avon Park,the more we contribute to our own well being,andt he more money well save. In addition to eliminating tipping fees at the landfill,f or example,the less bulk delivered to the landfill,the longer its useful life. W e strongly urge the county,Sebring and Lake Placid t o make single-stream recycling a high priority. Less dithering and wrangling overw hich company to contract, please. Take bids and get on w ith it. If a city the size of Avon Park can get a program up and running,there is no excuse for the other govern-m ents to be so far behind the curve. This not,however a government responsibility alone. Public pressure is essential to getting things done. A ccording to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection,in 2010 the latest available figure Highlands Countyr anks in the middle of the 67 counties,recycling about 125,000 tons that year. B y comparison,MiamiDade recycled 3.5 million tons of material,whileL iberty County recycled the least,only about 350,000 p ounds. We may sometimes be at the mercy of elected officials,b ut single-stream recycling is something we can control a nd should. Call your county commissioners and city councilors to demand action. Avon Park residents should call their city,too,o nly they get to say,ell done and thank you. Rest of county needs to catch up to Avon Park in recycling We congratulate the city of Avon Park for having a single-stream r ecycling system in place. Its the only one in Highlands County. By now you have probab ly consumed copious amounts of turkey and stuffing along with other yummy food and maybe even braved the stores onB lack Friday (which means you have more courage t han I do). Hello the holiday season. Hopefully you took a f ew moments to count your blessings while enjoying t he holiday.After all, Thanksgiving is supposed to be a time to be gratefulf or what we have. I suspect a number of people are cranky out t here,though. Theres a lot of bad news were having t o deal with lately a rocky economy,unrest in the Middle East,and Hostess closing their doors. Maybe after this last elec-t ion you feel there is nothing to be thankful for, because in your eyes we are doomed. In the spirit of the holiday,let me take a few moments and share what Ia m thankful for,hoping it will inspire you to do the s ame. I am thankful for a loving God who has filled my life with things to be grateful for. I am thankful to live in a country where I can openly express gratitude to God without fear of being censured or getting arrested.O ur freedom of speech and religion is something we sometimes take for granted, forgetting not everyone in the world enjoys such liberty. And while it has its problems,Im thankful for this country in general. Yes,were going through a rough patch,but seriously, were still pretty well off. And I am betting on us getting through this,one way or another. Thats how we roll. I am thankful for my family.They put up with my craziness and usually dont mind when I poke at them in columns. Theve supported my desire to write,cheer my successes and encourage me to keep at it the days I threaten to quit and become a professional video game player. They are the best gift ever. Im thankful to have the ability to try to make this writing thing profitable. I know writers who have to t ry to ply their trade while working a full-time job. M y situation allows me the opportunity to devote more time to my chosen career,t hough I will be the first to admit I dont use it as effic iently as I should. Im thankful to have a roof over my head,clothest o wear,and more than enough food to eat. More people then you imagine d ont possess such blessings. S peaking of food,Im thankful for chocolate. And coffee. And all kinds of delicious things to eat and drink. While I shouldp robably consume less of some of them,you have to be grateful to live in a world where everything doesnt taste like Brussel sprouts. Im grateful to live in an a ge where I can use a laptop to type up my column a nd other writings,even if the spell checker and I dont agree on how to spell Brussel sprouts. Im thankful for friends t hat cheer my successes, sympathize with my struggles and are there when I need encouragement or help. I hope Im as good tot hem as they are to me. Im thankful for my readers. Yes,I could write and never be read,but what fun is that? And Im grateful for each and every one of you,even the reader who called me names in one email and wished me a Happy Thanksgiving in the next. Hey,at least I got his attention. I could go on,but its time to wrap up for this week. I hope you thought of some blessings to be thankful for.And if you happen to get your hands on a Twinkie,be thankful and eat it for me,OK?

Opinions expressed in letters or columns are solely the opinion of that author and not necessarily the opinion of the staff or editors of the News-Sun O n election night,I was in DC doing the rounds of various media outlets. At one stop I found myself in a small cramped office of foreign journalists reporting to countries all over Europe and Asia,some as far as Korea. The conversations in the unventilated suite defaulted into election night chatter:wo-seventy is impossible without Wisconsin.Florida has 29 electrical votes,but their demographics are changing. If Romney wins Ohio,he still needs Pennsylvania,but if Obama wins Ohio he doesnt need Pennsylvania. At one point in the evening someone with a British accent turned to me and said:our elections are way too complicated. It occurred to me that I was in a room full of people reporting to countries far older than ours,all with far (far) younger democracies. The U.S. is still a young country with the oldest constitution still in use. And this juxtaposition is made painfully apparent on Election Night. The U.S. Constitution specifies an indirect election of the president. This was a compromise between Congress electing the executive office-holder and direct popular vote. A popular vote would mean the sparsely populated (think slave states) wouldnt get the same representation as all the white male land owners states. So the Electoral College was settled upon. Which is why today Alaska has three electoral votes even though its population is smaller than Staten Islands its because of slavery. Its also why youve been dutifully voting since the second you turned 18 (provided youre under 54 years old) and youve never actually directly voted for the leader of the free world. Does this now make sense some 200 years after ratification? Now that we no longer have a slave-based economy and the franchise has been extended to women,the answer is,No. It now means Ohio with its 18 electoral votes gets to be the belle of the ball every four years and states like California and New York with their combined 84 get largely ignored by the two national candidates. It means your vote in Florida has more value than your cousins vote in Wyoming. But it really means our system is overly complicated,fragmented and largely viewed with suspicion by voters. Because the way we vote for a president is antiquated and convoluted it leads to distrust. Local lawmakers can disenfranchise voters in national elections as we saw with the arbitrary voter ID laws in battleground states. There were concerns (think hysteria voting machines owned by Mitt Romnes son in Ohio would deliver the election to the Republicans. The group Anonymous (or someone claiming to be Anonymous) took credit for thwarting Karl Rovs alleged attempt at stealing the election. Then on Fox News the panic was over voter fraud. There were long lines,lost ballots and chaos on Election Day. Different voti ng precincts with different r ules and sometimes differe nt philosophies on who should cast their ballots were highlighted in the national media. What it all leads to is a voting result which have a whisper of illegitimacy.Theres a lingering doubt as to if the elections were fair and therefore the result valid. And its partisan:The Left will say that of George Bush stole the election,the Right about Obama. We could solve this issue by modernizing elections. Not only tossing out the Electoral College and letting Americans directly vote for a president,but making the requirements uniform (i.e. universal suffrage). This would make voting in Oregon just as relevant as a voting in Cuyahoga County. A census is constitutionally required every 10 years and we dont leave it up to each state to compile it. But we leave our national elections up to (in some cases the county officials?! Federalize federal elections. We have national standards for schools and milk safety but we cant vote the same way in every state? We can change this. And theres no better time than three years and eleven months before the next presidential election begins. Tina Dupuy is an award-winning writer and the editor-inchief of TheContributor.com/.

Reputed Los Angeles gang member Joe Luis S aenz was taken into custody in Guadalajara late Thursday following a joint operation with the M exican government. Investigators said Saenz shot and killed two rival g ang members in July 1998 to retaliate for an assault on one of his associates. Saenz suspected Sigrieta Hernandez, his girlfriend and the mother of his daughter, was going to tell police about the slayings, investigators said.H e is accused of kidnapping, raping and killing her less than two weeks later. S aenz also is believed to have killed Oscar Torres at his home in suburban Whittier in October 2 008 because he failed to repay $600,000 in drug money after police seized the cash during a traffic stop. Authorities said they have videotape from a surveillance camera at Torreshouse that shows Saenz killing Torres and wounding another person. S aenz, who is about 37 years old, was believed to be hiding in Mexico, working as an enforcer and h it man for a Mexican drug cartel.

C M Y K 2016 might want to look beyond the usual controversies over womens issuess uch as abortion or the polling fads such as WalMart moms. Maybe its time to pause and consider the fickle male. Maybe its timet o ask, What do men want? In the voting booth, that is. I dont think we fully understand it yet, political scientist Christina Wolbrechto f the University of Notre Dame said about why men and women vote differently.B ut she said plenty of research on elections going back to the 1950s indicatesi s not because of issues such as equal pay, birth cont rol coverage in health plans or Romneys awkward reference to binders full ofw omen. Paul Kellstedt has some i deas. ATexas A&M associate professor of political science, Kellstedt studies what American men and women want from their governmenta nd how that shifts over time. S tudies have found that the opinions that separate liberals and conservatives, eveno n issues such as abortion, dont divide the sexes much. M en and women are about as likely to fall on either side of those debates, and millions o f each happily line up with each political party. But there has been a consistent thread of disagreement for decades over whatr ole the government should play. Its not a big gap, but it is statistically significant, about 4 percentage points or5 points in many studies, K ellstedt said. As a group, women tend to like bigger g overnment with more health a nd welfare programs; men lean toward smaller government that spends less, except on the military. Sort of the social safety net v ersus rugged individualism. Or Obama versus Romney. There are lots of possible reasons the genders see this differently. B esides womens traditional role as family nurturers, they also live longer than men and so are more likely to rely on Social Security andM edicare. Women are more likely to be poor. Theyre more likely to be single par-e nts struggling to pay for child care, education and medical bills. M en may feel many social programs are expensive and w ont benefit them. omen tend to believe that government has a role top lay, that it should be a partner in their life, said D emocratic pollster Celinda Lake. Men tend to think its been a good day when the government hasnt done any-t hing bad to you. When the nation as a w hole drifts to the left or right on the big governments mall government debate, the gap between men and women fluctuates. Men and women shift their views in the same direction, Kellstedt said, butm en as a group tend to change their minds faster and move their views farther. The variation among mens opinions is larger, hes aid. The flighty, moody ones are the men, not the women. He said this difference of opinion on the role of gov-e rnment isnt big enough to entirely explain the larger gender gap in voting, howev-e r. Its a little bit of a puzzle. Women as a group voted D emocratic in the past six presidential races, from 1992 t hrough 2012, according to exit polls. The last time they decisively supported aR epublican was Ronald Reagans re-election in 1984. T he Reagan years were when Americans first began taking note of the gender gap, as womens rights groups emphasized thatf emale support for Reagan in 1980 was narrow while male v oters overwhelmingly endorsed him. www.newssun.comN ews-SunS unday, November 25, 2012Page 5A M ARTIAL ARTS (pp page top nov ads; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 4 4 7 7 3 3 9 9 F LORIDA HOSPITAL HEARTLAND A/P; 11.25"; 10.5"; Black plus three; process, cardiac tech; 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 5 5 3 3 4 4 7 7 Owners Jack Smile and Rosiland Pershan continue to bring the new and the old together to give customers aw ide variety of things they may want. e have many unique things here.

C M Y K m inutes, Love lay defenseless amid gunfire from the subsequent ambush and explosive residue from the IED blast that shattered hish and and legs. While thankful that he cant remember his time in the shadow of the death, Love thinks he knows why he made it out alive. I probably had thousands of people praying for me, even if its someone saying God, please protect our troops in Afghanistan, he said. Thats probably how I survived. Most 22-year-olds are just starting to figure out their path in life. While the triple amputee knows the road ahead is filled with enormous challenges, he is determined to make the most of what he sees as borrowed time. I know God does things for a reason ... Hes been kind of showing me that, the Marine said.

Gary Sinise, who has made supporting our troops a personal crusade, played a Nov.3 benefit concert with his Lt.

The Alpharetta, Ga., charity concert, held by the Gary Sinise Foundation and Tunnel to Towers Foundation, meant the world to Love and his family. All the love Im being shown from my hometown, it gives me hope not just in life but for our country, theM arine said. Just moments after he realized his legs were gone, Cpl.

C M Y K By LYNN ELBER APTelevision WriterJ.R. Ewing was a business cheat, faithless husband and bottomless well of corruption. Yet with his sparklingg rin, Larry Hagman masterfully created the charmingly loathsome oil baron and coaxed forth a Texas-size gusher of ratings on tele-v isions long-running and hugely successful nighttime soap, Dallas. Although he first gained fame as nice guy Capt. Tony Nelson on the fluffy 1965-70 NBC comedy I Dream of Jeannie, Hagman earned his greatest stardom with J.R. The CBS serial drama about the Ewing family and those in their orbit aired from April 1978 to May 1991, and broke viewing records with its Who shot J.R.? 1980 cliffhanger that left unclear if Hagmans character was dead. The actor, who returned as J.R. in a new edition of Dallas this year, had a long history of health problems and died Friday due to complications from his battle with cancer, his family said. Larry was back in his beloved hometown of Dallas, re-enacting the iconic role he loved the most. Larrys family and closest friends had joined him in Dallas for the Thanksgiving holiday, the family said in a statement t hat was provided to The Associated Press by Warner Bros., producer of the show. The 81-year-old actor was surrounded by friends andf amily before he passed peacefully, just as hed wished for, the statement said. Linda Gray, his on-screen w ife and later ex-wife in the original series and the sequel, was among those with Hagman in his final moments in a Dallas hospital, said her publicist, Jeffrey Lane. He brought joy to everyone he knew. He was creative, generous, funny, loving and talented, and I will miss him enormously. He was an original and lived life to the fullest, the actress said. Years before Dallas, Hagman had gained TVfame on I Dream of Jeannie, in which he played an astronaut whose life is disrupted when he finds a comely genie, portrayed by Barbara Eden, and takes her home to live with him. Eden recalled late Friday shooting the seriespilot in the frigid cold on a Malibu beach. From that day, for five more years, Larry was the center of so many fun, wild and sometimes crazy times. And in retrospect, memorable moments that will r emain in my heart forever, Eden said. Hagman also starred in two short-lived sitcoms, The Good Life (NBC,1 971-72) and Here We Go Again (ABC, 1973 film work included wellregarded performances in The Group, Harry andT onto and Primary Colors. But it was Hagmans masterful portrayal of J.R. that brought him the most fame. And the Who shot J.R.? story twist fueled international speculation and millions of dollars in betting-parlor wagers. It also helped give the series a place in ratings history. When the answer was revealed in a November 1980 episode, an average 41 million U.S. viewers tuned in to make Dallas one of the most-watched entertainment shows of all time, trailing only the MASH finale. t he Lorida Scrub Pens area to search for burrowing owls.

Arafat died in November 2004 in a French military hospital, a month after suddenly falling ill. P alestinian officials claim he was poisoned by Israel, but have not presented evidence. Israel has denied such allegations. Earlier this year, the d etection of a lethal radioactive substance in biological traces on Arafats clothing sparked a new investigation. Tests were inconclusive, ande xperts said they need to check his remains to learn more. On Tuesday, Swiss, French and Russian expertsw ill take samples from Arafats bones, said Tawfik Tirawi, who heads the Palestinian team investigating the death. They wille xamine the samples in their home countries. Arafat will be reburied the same day with military honors, but the ceremony will be closed to the public, Tirawit old a news conference. He did not specify when results would be announced but said the probe could take months. E arlier this month, workers began prying open the concrete-encased tomb in Arafats former government headquarters in the WestB ank city of Ramallah. The Palestinian Authority, the self-rule government in the West Bank, had hesitated before agreeing to exhumet he remains, in part because of cultural and religious sensitivities. Since mid-November, the gravesite has been surrounded with a blue tarpaulin andr oads leading to the Arafat mausoleum were closed.

C M Y K LIVING B SE CTION News-Sun Sunday, November 25, 2012 Understanding the fiscal cliffBYLISAMASCAROANDKIMGEIGERChicago TribuneThe fiscal clifis a term first used by Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke to describe the impact on the economy of about $502 billion in expiring tax cuts and spending reductions,both separately set to occur within a two-day time frame at the end of the year. Bernanke warned that if Congress fails to deal with the issues,the fragile economic recovery could be dashed.Congress must address tax and spending deadline by the end of yearW here the two parties agree What makes the cliff?DEFICIT CUTSBoth sides are aiming for a deal that would slash $4 trillion from the federal deficit over the next decade. T hey also agree that there are some ways not to do it.SPENDINGOn the spending side,neither party wants to see the automatic across-the-board cuts that would take place under sequestration,and they want to prev ent the looming cuts in Medicare payments to doctors. REVENUEOn the revenue side,both parties want to avoid an expansion of the alternative minimum tax,and they agree that the Bush tax cuts should be extended for 98 percent of taxpayers. Couples who make less than $ 250,000 and individuals with income below $200,000 should continue to receive those breaks,both sides have said.Where they disagreeBOEHNERS POSITIONHouse Speaker John Boehner has said that raising tax rates is unacceptableand insists that any attempt t o do so would never pass the House. Most lawmakers in the Republican majority have signed a pledge never to raise taxes. Boehner wants to see all the tax cuts extended for another year to buy Congress time to put together a big deal. He has said that he would be open to producing new tax revenue in conjunction with an overhaul of the tax code that would also lower rates. Most experts say that approach would not raise enough money.OBAMAS POSITIONObama opposes extending the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy the top 2 percent of taxpayers and has said that he wont sign a bill that continues those breaks. H e campaigned heavily on a pledge to ask the wealthy to pay a little moreand views the election result as an endorsement of his position. Indeed,national exit polls show that 60 percent of voters support raising taxes on the wealthy.And a recent Gallup poll found that 56 percent say that at least half of any deficitreduction deal should be accomplished through tax increases. In his budget,Obama proposed a deficit reduction plan for the next decade that would raise $1.5 trillion in new revenue,largely by allowing the tax cuts for the rich to expire,and would cut $1.5 trillion in spending. Obama has signaled that he is open to making changes to entitlement programs as part of those spending cuts. The remaining $1 trillion is already in place,through caps on discretionary spending that Obama signed into law last year.O LIVIER DOULIERY/ABACA PRESS/MCT Four possible outcomesOFF THE CLIFFCongress could do nothing,allowing income tax rates to rise to pre-Bush-era levels. Doing so would rattle Wall Street and cause consumer spending to contract. But it would also put new pressure on Republicans and would spare them from having to actually vote for a tax increase. The two parties could then negotiate lower tax rates for some or all taxpayers.SHORT-TERM DEALCongress could buy some time for a broader deal if it puts a down payment in place to prevent panic on Wall Street. Democrats would insist on some sort of new revenue in exchange for spending cuts. Obama has called on Congress to extend the Bush-era tax rates for all but the wealthy,but Republicans are more likely to offer to close some loopholes or limit some deductions instead.THE PUNTCongress could postpone coming tax hikes and spending cuts while talks continue,but that would put Obama in the position of having to renege on his campaign pledge to end the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy by Jan. 1.THE LARGE DEALBoth Boehner and Obama would prefer this option,which would address spending and revenue in one grand bargain,but it is not likely to be accomplished during the lame-duck session,so a short-term solution to the fiscal clif would have to take place first.How the economy might reactWhat would happen if we went off the iscal cliff? The Congressional Budget Office projected just such a scenario. The result in the short term:The gross domestic product would drop by 0.5 percent in 2013, which would likely cause unemployment to rise and as a result imperil the economic recovery. Its widely believed going over the cliff could spook the markets and raise questions with credit-rating agencies. The two scenarios shown below represent letting the tax cuts expire and spending cuts go into effect (off-the-cliff scenario) or conversely continuing the tax cuts and delaying the spending cuts (delay scenarioThe CBO projects the delay scenario would be easier on unemployment in the short term but would also add to the federal deficit,which could have longer-term consequences if it is not dealt with.

Delay scenario: The CBO predicts continued short-term recovery with unemployment down.

For schools,the National Education Association warns that cuts would hit 9 million students,including those in Head Start and special education,with 80,000 jobs lost.I NCREASED TAXES$330 billionEXPIRATION OF THE USH TAX CUTSOn Dec. 31,2012,the 2001,2003 and 2010 tax cuts (often referred to as the Bush tax cuts expire. Congress must decide whether to allow the cuts to expire,to extend the cuts,or to extend cuts to all except the wealthiest 2 percent of taxpayers. President Barack Obama and many Democrats support the 2 percent option while Republicans favor extending the cuts for everyone. AUTOMATIC SPENDING CUTS(Sequestration)$64 billionA LTERNATIVE MINIMUM TAXThe alternative minimum tax,or AMT,is an addit ional income tax that currently applies to household taxable income of $75,000 or greater. The AMT has had a legislative patch dating back to 2000 that excluded many families. If Congress does not act, the AMT would be applied to millions more citizens. C urrently,only 4 million people pay the AMT. If no action is taken by Congress,28 million Americans (those who make more than $48,000 in taxable income annually) will be required to pay it. According to the Tax Policy Center,the average family affected by the AMT would have to pay an additional $3,700 in taxes. ESTATE TAX INCREASEThe estate tax is currently 35 percent on any assets over $5.12 million. On Jan. 1,the tax will be 55 percent on assets over $1 million unless Congress changes the law. Most Republicans support a complete repeal of the tax,while Obama urges a compromise of 35 percent on assets over $3.5 million. OTHER EXPIRING BENEFITS$108 billionPAYROLL TAX CUTS EXPIREA key plank of Obamas stimulus plan,the payroll tax cut trimmed the employee portion of the Social Security tax from 6.2 percent to 4.2 percent. This legislation was part of the Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization and Job Creation Act of 2010. The average worker will pay about $1,000 more in taxes if the payroll tax cut expires. UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITSAlso coming to an end are the extended unemployment benefits,which provide jobless benefits for up to 99 weeks in many states. These items are likely to expire as there is little partisan disagreement over them.NOTE:Large figures represent costs in fiscal years 2013 and 2014.

C M Y K Page 2BNews-SunSunday, November 25, 2012www.newssun.com Dear Abby: My darling mother-in-law passed awayr ecently. She was a wonderful woman,a caring and loving role model to her children and grandchildren. In her will she left a diamond ring to her daughter,Mimi, a diamond ring to me,and the remainder of her jewelry to her grandchildren. Her house and its contents were to be divided equally between her son and daughter. My children received a box from Mimi filled with Moms costume jewelry.All of her expensive jewelry was missing. When I asked about the missing items,Mimi said they were in the box,and she had taken photos to prove it. My husband noticed that many valuable items were missing from the family home as well. Recently my daughter and I ran into my sister-in-law in a restaurant and saw she was wearing one of the pieces of jewelry that had been intended for my children. When I asked Mimi to please take it off and give it to my daughter,she replied that she couldnt because she was still grieving.Any advice on how to handle this? Heartbroken in Washington Dear Heartbroken: What a shame. Who was the executor of your mother-inlas will? That person should have been overseeing the disposition of her property,and that is the person you should contact now to see the deceaseds wishes are complied with. If Mimi was the executor,then your next step should be to contact an attorney. Dear Abby: I am a 25year-old male who is still a virgin. It bugs me knowing that uglier,disgusting,less intelligent guys are having sex,while I compassionate,smart,educated and good-looking am not. What am I supposed to do? What is the secret to finally losing my virginity? This has been bothering me lately because I have lost a lot of weight and feel bett er about myself,but it still isnt happening. I used to be extremely shy,but the confidence I gained from the weight loss has helped me in talking to strangers. I dont get it. I feel like life is playing a cruel joke on me. I feel like the only virgin in the room. Please give me some advice. Ready for More Dear Ready: Please take a moment and re-read the second sentence of your letter. If you do,you will realize that while you have lost the weight,you have not lost the anger you must have felt when,for years,you went unnoticed. The chances of losing your virginity and more important,having a relationship will improve if you talk to a psychologist. Unless you do,as smart,e ducated and good-looking as you now are,the vibe you emit may continue to repel women. I have seen this happen,so please give my advice serious consideration. Dear Abby: Our son and daughter-in-law live out of state. They have a 1-year-old daughter. For their anniversary,we sent them a gift certificate saying that we would pay for a night out on the town,including a hotel of their choice in the city where they live. We offered to watch our granddaughter and their dogs while they enjoyed themselves. Their response was a resounding no. They said that it was the most selfish gift we had ever given them because it wasn't for them; itw as so we could baby-sit. What do you think? Grandma Gayle Dear Grandma Gayle: I think their manners are atrocious. How sharper than a serpents tooth it is to have a thankless child!

Libra may not always have things the way others do Daughter willfully disregards mothers bequest of jewels As my husband Ken and I madep lans for a trip to Colorado,we knew wed be doing so on a shoestringb udget. Consequently,the price of gas creeping ever upward wasnte ncouraging at all. Yet,with careful planning, we knew we could handlei t. So,we began setting our plans into motion:figuringt iming and distance between stops,printing out d irections and maps,setting up overnight stays and the arrival to our childrensh ome. After a 10-day stay with t hem,we would go to Estes Park to visit with friends, hike Rocky Mountain National Park and then begin our trip home.Ourd esire was to make this be a leisurely paced trip witho ut time pressure. But we had to put our heads together and inten-t ionally think through the timing and various costs of l odging,food and gas. Just around the time I was really getting excited a bout our plans,several unexpected expenses and needs pushed in to frustrate my clear thoughts about the trip. M entally exhausted from trying to figure it all out,I blew up. Aggravation and frustration definitely inhibit cleart hought patterns. I had just been reminded t he day before about how our thinking is reflected ino ur actions. Our thoughts express themselves in how we respond to things; how wem ake our plans, set goals and create positive or negative pathways to the future. W e live in an age of information that is overwhelming to say the least.The key tof inding our way through this maze of information and ideas is to havei ntentional thoughts.We tend to gravitate to what we put in our minds. T herefore,we need to ask God to help us sift t hrough it so that our thoughts are timeless. In Philippians 4:8, N KJV,we are instructed in this way.Finally,brethren, w hatever things are truenoblejustpurel ovelyof good report,if there is any virtue and if there is anything praisewor-t hy meditate on these thingsand the God of p eace will be with you. Peace returned when God helped me see throught he frustration to simple solutions with a timeless p erspective. Imagine how Mary and Joseph felt when presented w ith what God was entrusting to them,while at the same time requiring of them?At first it must have turned their peace insideo ut.But,when they humbly obeyed and looked through Gods timeless perspective, peaceGods shalomenveloped them.

MOTA to host Smithsonian Institute Exhibit starting Dec. 8 ARTS& ENTERTAINMENT The news is just a click away!www.newssun.com NEWS-SUN By JAKE COYLE A P Entertainment WriterNEW YORK For his first professional acting job,a 22-year-old Anthony Hopkins took a train from South Wales to Manchester. With time to kill on a rainy day,he dropped off hisb ags and headed to the movies,where a long queue wound outside the cinema. It was packed,Hopkins recalls. I sat down and I didnt know what the hell Iw as in for. I had heard stories about it. When it got to t he shower scene,I dont think Ive ever been so scared in my life. T he movie was,of course,Alfred Hitchcocks Psycho,a film that 52 years after its shocking premiere still hasnt released audiences from its subversive thrall. The film,whichH itchcock called a fun picture,was revolutionary i n its violence,its sexiness, its sympathy to the perspective of the criminal mind a nd,perhaps above all,its technique. What if someone really good made a horror picture?wonders the Britishd irector,played by Hopkins,in the new film Hitchcock. D irected by Sacha Gervasi,it depicts the maki ng of Psychowith a keen focus on Hitchcocks relationship and profession indebtedness to his wife Alma Reville (played byH elen Mirren). It is only the latest example of the undying fascination with Psycho,a film that ushered in a new darkness in American movies, one with a playful sense ofi rony toward violence but also a serious treatment of t hat which had previously been considered mere schlock.Though Hitchcock made a dozen films that could easily bel abeled masterpieces,none seized audiences with the same power as Psycho. Made for just $800,000 at the end of Hitchcocksc ontract with Paramount (which distributed the film but left Hitchcock to finance it himself), Psycho,based on Robert Blochs novel,went on to gross $32 million the biggest hit of his career. The director famously handed out manuals to theaters with explicit directions not to let anyone in after the movie began. Though most critics dismissed the film then,some finally began to consider Hitchcock an artist of the highest order most notably Robin Wood,who called Psychoperhaps the most terrifying film ever made. We are (taken) forward and downward into the darkness of ourselves, w rote Wood. Psycho begins with the normal and d raws us steadily deeper and deeper into the abnormal. That Psychokilled off its star Janet Leigh a fter just half an hour was only one of its many unheard of elements. Scenes of Leigh in her underwear were unusual for their time,too,and prompted lengthy negotiationsb etween Hitchcock and the sensors. Even a flushing t oilet considered a vulgar sight had never been seen in such a big movie. Of course,the infamous shower scene in whichL eighs Marion Crane meets her demise immediately recognizable from the screaming violinsof Bernard Herrmanns score is the films piece de resistance. The ruthless slicing wasnt of flesh,but of film:70 shots in 45 seconds,a perfect marriage of montage and murder. A prop man sounded the scene by knifing casaba melons. In his book The Moment of Psycho:How Alfred Hitchcock Taught America to Love Murder, the critic David Thomson argues that the influence of Psychois everywhere in movies,including Bonnie and Clyde,Jaws,Taxi Driver,many of the films of Stanley Kubrick and even the James Bond movies. Psycho,Thomsonw rites,let the subversive secret out,after which censorship crumpled like a n old ladys parasol. s one of the most i nfluential films ever made,says Thomson. s the beginnings of a flood of violence. Violence becomes more acceptable in film. Itsa whole new attitude to the criminal personality. It becomes more interesting in a way that had never really operated before. It celebrates the director. (Hitchcockas taken witha new seriousness after that, and in turn,directors were. I n the famous interviews with French director Francois Truffaut, Hitchcock said he was most interested in all the techni-c al ingredients that made the audience screamand hoped that Psychowould be a film that belongs to filmmakers. T hats certainly been true,as Psychohas inspired perhaps the most obsessive ode in Hollywood history,the near frame-byframe 1998 remake by Gus Van Sant. In the every-decade polling done by film magazine Sight & Sound, Hitchcocks Vertigo (released two years before Psychoto largely negative reviews) earlier this year displaced Orson WellesCitizen Kaneas the best film of all time, according to voting critics. Among the directors who have voted for Psychoin After Psycho, a shower of violence in movies MCT A lfred Hitchcock on the set of Psycho, which was released in 1960.

The four other finalists:This Is HowYou Lose Her,by Junot Diaz; A Hologram for the King,by Dave Eggers; The Yellow Birds,by Kevin Powers; and Billy Lynns Long Halftime Walk,by Ben Fountain. This was a tough crowd! Erdrich,who runs Birchbark Books in Minneapolis,wrote in a recente mail about her competition. Erdrich didnt mention her own novel,he Round House,buta nother author-bookseller took care of that.

I read the book really early on, a nd Ive thought about it every single day since,Patchett said. Its d ark,funny,complex and very,very moving. Patchett had several other suggest ions,from Jon Meachams biography Thomas Jefferson:The Art of P ower,a pick she thinks ideal for men; to Maile Malos The A pothecaryfor middle schoolers. She also loved J.K. Rowlings first g rownup novel,The Casual Vacancy,a feeling she made clear in October when she interviewedt he Harry Potterauthor on stage at Lincoln Center in Manhattan.

It will eat just about anything it can catch and fit in its mouth. It breeds year round and c an lay up to 35,000 eggs,which mature only after about three months. If you touch one,it can secrete a h ighly toxic milky substance from the back of its head,which can burn your eyes,irritate your skin and kill your pets. Sound scary? Although this may sound like something out of a horror novel,it is very real. The species isB ufo marinus,also known as the Cane toad,Marine toad and Giant toad. O riginally from Central and South America,this exotic amphibian was introduced to Florida to control whiteg rubs in sugar cane fields. It has since been sold in pet stores around the state. B ecause they are such prolific breeders, they have become a huge problem in Florida and other states because they are out-competing the native toads. They are the largest of the frogs and toads foundi n Florida and can grow to a length of nine inches and live 40 years in captivit y.They have very dry skin that is brown with lighter spots and a light underbelly. Cane toads have very largee yes with horizontal pupils and golden irises. T hey appear to have warts on their skin,which are actually a collection of poison glands. Behind each large eyea nd extending along the body are parotoid glands. When threatened or stressed in any w ay,the toad can release enough milky, white poison from these glands to kill a l arge dog. In the early spring,the toads travel to breeding ponds to mate. The males call the females by pumping air back and forth over their vocal chords. Thes ounds originate from membranes called tympanic,which are located behind the eyes on either side of the head. The eggs are small and black laid in jelly like strands which can reach lengths of 66 feet. The toads arent finicky about where they lay their eggs and will matei n fresh,brackish,still,running,clear, muddy,deep,shallow,natural and manm ade water structures. The strands are usually wrapped around some floating vegetation in the water and when lifted out remain intact. Temperature dictates when the eggs h atch into tadpoles. The timeframe varies from 48 hours up to a week. Once h atched,thousands of tiny,black,short tailed creatures will swim around until they develop into toadlets,which takesa bout a month. Even the eggs and tadpoles are toxic to many animals if they a re consumed. Their diet includes just about everything. They dine on small rodents,rep-t iles,other amphibians,birds,invertebrates,plants,dog food and garbage. They swallow their prey and identify v ictims by movement. Vision is the primary method of detection although the t oads can also use their sense of smell. If threatened,the toad will secrete a milkywhite fluid known as bufotoxin. The cane toad is also capable of inflating its lungs,puffing up and lifting itsb ody off the ground to make it appear taller and larger. Predators are rare if the toad is not in its native habitat. Although some animals brave enough to feed on the creature include rats and some kites. As with all exotic species,these critters threaten the native toads by con-s uming their food and moving into their homes. Most exotics do not have e nough natural enemies to keep them in balance and therefore get out of control at a rapid rate. Cane toad trivia:Cane toads can squirt a fine spray of p oison over a short distance if they are handled roughly. Venom produced by t heir glands (paratoid glands cipally on the heart. The venom is absorbed through mucous membraness uch as eyes,mouth and nose,and in humans may cause intense pain,tempor ary blindness and inflammation. Pets are commonly poisoned from mouthing cane toads. Signs of poison-i ng include profuse salivation,twitching,vomiting,shallow breathing,and collapse of the hind limbs. Death may o ccur by cardiac arrest within 15 minutes. They commonly poison many native animals whose diet includes frogs,tadpoles and frogs' eggs.

Unfortunately, when time is at a p remium and you're forced to make lastminute decisions,i t's usually your budget that suffers. As an occasional procrastinator m yself,let me share a few tips Ive picked up over the years that can help t ake the expense and stress out of holiday planning: Before you start shopping,calculate h ow much you can afford to spend on the holidays as a portion of your overa ll budget. If your finances are in good shape,spend no more than 1.5 percent of your annual income. But if youre deeply in debt,cant meet your regular monthly expenses or dont have ane mergency fund,this isnt the time to rack up additional debt. O nce you determine an overall amount,tally up expected holidayrelated expenses including gifts,deco-r ations,new clothes and accessories, giftwrap,cards,postage,special meals a nd year-end gratuities. Dont forget travel-related expenses if you plan to leave town,and try to recall unanticip ated expenses from last year. If youre looking for ways to cut back,consider: Arrange gift lotteries with family members and friends so everyone con-c entrates their time,effort and money on buying fewer,nicer gifts. Speak candidly with friends, coworkers and extended family about placing a moratorium on exchangingg ifts. There probably feeling the pinch too. If the gift-giving gesture is important to you,suggest pooling resources with others to make a sizeable contribution to a charity you all believe in. Once youve determined your overa ll holiday spending budget and before you start shopping make a d etailed list that includes: Everyone on your shopping list. Spending limits and several gift alternatives for each person. How much you actually spend on e ach gift. If you overspend on one Cut your holiday expenses Metro Before you break out the credit card and start ordering presents, have a budget set up detailing what you plan to spend on each persons gift. Personal Finance Jason Alderman See BUDGET,page 3C By ANNE DINNOCENZIO AP Retail WriterThis season appears to mark the end of Black Friday as we know it.

Others could shop head straightf rom the dinner table to stores on T urkey Day.And stores were able to attract both groups by offering door b uster sales from $179 40inch flat-screen TVs to $10 jeans at different times of the day. Sam Chandler,55,and his w ife,Lori Chandler,54,were a part of the early group.

C M Y K By HOPE YEN A ssociated PressW ASHINGTON Emboldened by rapid growth in e-commerce shipping,the cash-strapped U.S. Postal Service is moving aggres-s ively this holiday season to start a premium service for the Internet shopper seeking the instant gratification of a store purchase:same-dayp ackage delivery. Teaming up with major retailers,the post office will begin the expedited service in San Francisco on Dec. 12 at a price similar to its com-p etitors. If things run smoothly,the program will q uickly expand next year to other big cities such as Boston,Chicago and NewY ork. It follows similar efforts by eBay, A mazon.com,and most recently Wal-Mart Stores Inc.,which charges a $10 flat rate for same-day delivery. T he delivery program, called Metro Post,seeks to b uild on the post offices double-digit growth in package volume to help offsets teady declines in first-class and standard mail. Operating a s a limited experiment for the next year,it is projected to generate between $10 mil-l ion and $50 million in new revenue from deliveries in San Francisco alone,accordi ng to postal regulatory filings,or up to $500 million, i f expanded to 10 cities. The filings do not reveal the mail agencs anticipated expenses to implement same-day service,which cano nly work profitably if retailers have enough merchandise in stores and warehouses to be quickly delivered to nearby residences in a dense urban area. The projected $500 million in poten-t ial revenue,even if fully realized,would represent j ust fraction of the record $15.9 billion annual loss that the Postal Service reported last week. But while startups in the l ate 1990s such as Kozmo.com notably failed after promising instant delivery,the Postal Services vast network serving every U.S.h ome could put it in a good position to be viable over the long term. The retail market has been rapidly shifting to Internet shopping,especially among younger adults,and more people are moving from suburb to city,where driving to a store can be less convenient. Postal officials,in interviews with The Associated Press,cast the new offering as excitingand potentially revolutionary.Analysts are apt to agree at least in part, if kinks can be worked out. There is definitely consumer demand for same-day delivery,at the right price, said Matt Nemer,a senior analyst at Wells Fargo Securities in San Francisco. The culture in retail traditionally has been to get a customer into the store,with the immediacy of enjoying a purchase being the main draw. So same-day delivery could be huge for online retailers. The question isw hether the economics can work. He and others said that consumers are a fickle lot when it comes to shipping,s eeking fast delivery,but also sensitive to its pricing. Many will order online and pick up merchandise at a store if it avoids shippingc harges,or will agree to pay a yearly fee of $79 for a service such as Amazon Prime to get unlimited,free two-day delivery or even purchase a higher-pricedi tem if it comes with free shipping. Customers do like sameday delivery when it gets very close to a holiday or ito therwise becomes too late to shop,said Jim Corridore, a nalyst with S&P Capital IQ, which tracks the shipping industry. But while the Postal Service has the ability to deliver to any address,t hey are not always known for their speed. To increase t heir speed might prove to be a much more complex offering than there thinkinga bout. As the Postal Service l aunches Metro Post and sets pricing,its target consumer is likely to include busy pro-f essionals such as Victoria Kuohung,43. A dermatologist and mother of three y oung children,Kuohung for years has gone online for v irtually all her familys needs,including facial cleansers,books,clothing, toys,diapers and cookware. Kuohung lives in a downt own Boston high-rise apartment with her husband,who often travels out of town for work. The couple says they would welcome having more retailers offer same-day delivery as an option. Still,a t an estimated $10 price, Kuohung acknowledges that s he would likely opt to wait an extra day or two for delivery,unless her purchase were a higher-priced electronics gadget or a specialt oy or gift for her sons birthday. I prefer not to spend my time driving in a car,fighting for parking,worryinga bout the kids,dealing with traffic and battling crowds for a limited selection in stores,said Kuohung,as her 1-year-old-twins and 4-yearold son squealed in the background. But right now Amazon delivers in two days since Im a member of Prime,so it would have to be something I cant get at the corner CVS or the grocery store down the street. Under the plan,the Postal Service is working out agreements with at least eight and as many as 10 national retail chains for same-day delivery. The mail agency says nondisclosure agreements dont allow it to reveal the companies. But given the somewhat limited pool of large-scale retailers they must have a physical presence in 10 or more big U.S. cities to be a postal partner the list is expected to include department stores,sellers of general merchandise,clothiers,evenp erhaps a major e-commerce company or two. Consumers will have until 2 or 3 p.m. to place an online order with a partici-p ating retailer,clicking the box that says same-day deliveryand making the payment. Postal workers then pick up the merchandisef rom nearby retail stores or warehouses for delivery to homes between 4 and 8 p.m. that day. In San Francisco, the post office will closely track work hours and travel,w hich could quickly add to costs depending on traffic, t otal package volume or the proximity of merchandise in a delivery area. Wre trying to revolutionize shipping; were not s imply trying to get a niche market of consumers,said Gary Reblin,the Postal Services vice president for domestic products. He believes people of varyinga ges and income levels young adults who dont own cars,older Americans who are less mobile will welcome avoiding costly ort ime-consuming trips to the store. By targeting big partners, Reblin said,the post office eventually hopes to pushp ricing down by making same-day delivery a standard option on retail web sites.

Benchmark crude ended the trading day up 90 cents to $88.28 a barrel on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Brent,which is used to price international varieties of oil,was up 83 cents to $111.38 a barrel. Fridays killing is the first violence since a truce between Israel and the militant Hamas group was reached two days ago. Prior to the shooting,oil prices had been falling,thanks mostly to optimism over the stability in the region that the cease-fire agreement provided. Israel launched an offensive on Nov. 14 to halt rocket fire from Gaza,unleashing some 1,500 airstrikes on Hamas-linked targets,while Hamas and other Gaza militants showered Israel with just as many rockets.

Stores often match competitors prices even if their own items arent on sale. Plus,m any consolidation websites post downloadable coupons and sale codes for online retailers. Mobile shopping apps l et in-store smartphone and tablet users scan product barcodes and make on-thespot price comparisons, read reviews,download coupons,buy products and more. If youre traveling for the holidays,note that many airlines charge $25 or more for each checked bag. Many stores and websites ship gifts for free,saving you hassle at the airport. Carefully read purchase-return policies for deadlines,exclusions (e.g., for sale or clearance items) and restocking charges. Keep receipts. Many retailers will refund the price difference if an item goes on sale within a few weeks after purchase. Check whether your credit card agreement provides free product warranty extensions and/or price protection. And finally,consider the gift of time. Older relatives dont need more chocolates, but they probably could use help with chores,running e rrands or rides to doctors appointments. P lus,they would probably appreciate your company.

C M Y K Metro ServicesEntertaining is part of the h oliday season when hosts and hostesses open their h omes to many friends and family to celebrate a time ofg iving and togetherness. Gifts for the host and/or hostess can show appreciation to the men and women who go above and beyond. A hostess gift can be as simple or as extravagant as your budget allows. Many people tend to gravitate toward food-related giftsb ecause of their simplicity and the idea that they can be served at the gathering of friends and family. But conventional etiquette suggests that hosts and hostesses are not obligated to serve the beverages or foods guests bring and should not feel ashamed to reserve them for their own private use. So guests may want to think outside the box when gifting holiday hosts this season. Here are some ideas to consider. Flavored dipping oils: Herb-infused oils lend a different taste to prepared foods and also can be used as a bread garnish in lieu of butter. Pair a flavored oil with a loaf of gourmet bread and include a decorative,shallow bowl that can be used for the oil. Wine caddy: The number of restaurants that enable you to bring your own beverages has multiplied. This means that diners can benefit from practical ways to transport their favorite vintage from home to the table. Wine caddies and holdersc ome in many different designs,from some that r esemble a woman's clutch to suitcase-inspired designs. After-dinner treat :Put together a basket of foods that can be served after dinner. A citrusy palate cleanser,like lemon-infusedb utter cookies,fresh fruit and a sparkling beverage may fit the bill perfectly. Specialty stores often sell gift "towers" this time ofy ear that package together delicious treats. Scented sugars: Oil isn't the only condiment that can be infused with aroma and additional flavor. Purchase canning jars and fill them with your favorite brand of granulated sugar. Add flavorings,such as cinnamon sticks,vanilla beans, mint leaves,or hazelnuts,to give foods a subtle essence of flavor.Tie a bow around the jar and present it as a thoughtful gift. Garden gift basket: Although the cold weather is here,a garden gift basket can still make a welcome gift. Include flower seeds, fertilizer sticks,a garden trowel,a pair of gardening gloves and any other essentials you can think of. Spa gift certificate: Entertaining is hard work and a hostess may enjoy some time to recuperate once the holidays have come and gone. A gift certificate for a facial or massage will provide at least an hour of pampering. Homemade treats: Much in the way a hand-w ritten thank-you note can convey how much you a ppreciate a gift,a handmade gift can tell a host thaty ou were thankful to be invited to an event. If you prepare a signature dish, whip it up and bring it along. I t's also easy to create some simple garnishes and package them in a decorative tin or jar. Think homemade salsa or a homemade choco-l ate ganache sauce. Breakfast in bed: Enable the host and hostess to sleep in the next day by having breakfast all ready to go. Put together a basket or tray with individual bottles of juice,packets of tea or instant coffee and some gourmet muffins or scones. Add a jar of jam and some small spreading knives so breakfast can be served with minimal hassle. Metro ServicesFamily gatherings are syno nymous with the holiday season. Even those families who have spread out far and wide often manage to come together at least once at thee nd of the year. When families include members who dont live within driving distance of one another,those whoa rent hosting the holiday festivities must plan an overnight stay. Lodging costs can be considerable during the holiday season because hotels can quicklyf ill to capacity. Holiday hosts who want to go the e xtra mile can invite guests to forgo hotels and stay overnight at their homes,w here guests can spend more time with hosts and wont h ave to worry about finding lodging they can afford. Though its a nice gesture to host overnight guests during the holiday season,itsa lso one that requires a little work on the part of the h osts,who must take time ouf of the often hectic holiday schedule to prepare theirh omes for guests. The following are a few pointers for h osts who want to ensure everything is ready and accommodating foro vernight guests. Take inventory of household linens. Depending on how many guests youllb e hosting,you may need to stock up on extra linens. If only one or two people will be staying overnight,you should be able to make duew ith what you have. However,if youll be hosting a second family for the holidays,whether its one night or a full week,then you willl ikely need to buy more linens,including bedding, pillows and blankets. Take inventory of what you have and make sure you have adequate bedding for eachg uest,as well as some extra bedding in case of emerg ency. Discuss pet allergies. Holiday hosts who have petss hould discuss pet allergies with potential overnight g uests well in advance of the season. If guests are allergic to your pets,then it might not be comfortable for them to stay overnight at yourh ome. While most families would not want to shelter t heir pets on a holiday,doing so is an option but one that may not even be worth it.P et hair and dander around the house might be enough t o trigger an allergic attack even when the pet isnt in or around the home,so shelter-i ng the pet may not be a solution after all. Discuss this issue with prospective g uests well in advance of the season so they have time to find affordable lodging int he event that any of them do have a pet allergy. Stock up on toiletries. Toiletries are bound to run out if youre hosting guests for the holidays. Before guests arrive,stock up ont hese items,including toilet and facial tissue,hand soap, b ath soap,shampoo and conditioner,toothpaste and extra toothbrushes in case guestsf orgot to pack their own. These items have no expirat ion date,so even if you end up buying more than you need you can always uset hem down the road when guests have long since returned home. Clear the house of clutter. Clutter can make a home seem even more crowdedw hen guests are staying overnight. Clutter can accumulate anywhere in the house,from bathrooms to al iving room to the kitchen. When hosting guests for the holidays,you will need all the space you can get,so clear the house of as muchc lutter as possible. Put all toys away and clear the common areas of items like shoes and clothing that can make a space seem morec ramped. In addition,clear the dining room table of any items that arent needed at mealtime and choose festive centerpieces that dont take up much space. Dont be caught off guard by a storm. If guests w ill be staying multiple nights,its safe to assume everyone,hosts and guestsi ncluded,will want to get out of the house,be it to enjoy local holiday celebrations or simply to avoid c abin fever by getting some fresh air. But the holiday season gets its fair share of inclement weather,includin g s nowstorms. Hosts should n ot be caught off guard by a snowstorm,stocking up on items like a snow shovel,a snow blower and salt or a d e-icing product for walkw ays and driveways before guests arrive. This will ensure everyone wont feel trapped inside the house s hould a storm arrive unexp ectedly. Hosting guests for the ho lidays is no small task. But hosts who prepare in advance can ensure everyon e makes the most of their time together. Page 4CNews-SunSunday, November 25, 2012www.newssun.com DR.

She wor-r ied teachers would harass her for missing class because of doctors appointments and morning sickness. A guidance counselor u rged Gonzalez not to,saying that could lower her standards. Instead,her counselor set up a meeting with teachersa t her St. Augustine high school to confirm she could make up missed assign-m ents,eat in class and use the restroom whenever she needed. Gonzalez,who isn ow 18,kept an A-average while pregnant. She capitali zed on an online school program for parenting students so she could stay home andt ake care of her baby during her junior year. She returned t o school her senior year and graduated with honors in May. But Gonzalez is a rare example of success amongp regnant students. Schools across the country are divide d over how to handle them, with some schools kicking them out or penalizing stu-d ents for pregnancy-related absences. And many schools s ay they cant afford costly support programs,including tutoring,child care and t ransportation for teens who may live just a few miles from school but still too far to walk while pregnant or with a small child. Nearly 400,000 girls and y oung women between 15 and 19 years old gave birth in 2010,a rate of 34 per 1,000,according to the Centers for Disease Controla nd Prevention. Those statistics have led child advocates to push for greater adherence to a1972 law that bans sex discrimina-t ion in federally funded education programs and activities,according to a new report by the National Womens Law Center. F atima Goss Graves,the centers vice president of education and employment,s ays offering pregnant teens extra support would ultimately save taxpayers moneyb y helping them become financially independent and n ot dependent on welfare. But budget cuts have eaten into such efforts. C alifornia lawmakers slashed a successful program f or such students in 2008, ruling it was no longer mandatory,and allowed school districts to use the money for other programs. M ore than 100,000 pregnant and parenting students h ave participated in the program that helps them with classwork and connects themw ith social services. It boasted a 73 percent graduation r ate in 2010 close to the states normal rate and advocates said participants w ere less reliant on welfare and less likely to become pregnant again. That compares to several counties w here only 30 percent of pregnant and parenting teens g raduated. s unfortunate that this effective program fell prey to the enormous budget challenges we are facing as as tate,said State Superintendent of Public I nstruction Tom Torlakson. Three years ago in Wisconsin,cost-cutting law-m akers dropped a requirement for school districts to g ive pregnant students who live within two miles of a school building free rides to s chool. The requirement had been part of an effort to improve access to education and reduce infant mortality r ates. Less than half of the states h ave programs that send home assignments to homebound or hospitalized student parents,according to the study. I n almost half of the states,including Idaho, N evada,Nebraska,South Dakota and Utah,the definition of excused absences isn ot broad enough to include pregnant and parenting stud ents. That typically results in a patchwork of policies where some school districts d ont excuse absences even if the student is in the hospital giving birth,according to the study. B ut a few states have developed programs to help i mprove graduate rates among pregnant girls and young mothers. In Washington,D.C.,caseworkers in the New HeightsT een Parent Program often stand by the school entrance o r text pregnant students and young moms to make sure they are attending classes. W hen students do miss school,caseworkers take t hem homework assignments. About 600 students participate in the program w hich also helps students with housing,child care and parenting skills. But the $1.6 million federal grant funding the program runs out next year and officials said theyd ont have a clear future funding source. Roughly 4,500 male and female student parents participated in a Pennsylvaniap rogram last year where case workers helped them balance school and child care. Nearly 1,300 graduated or received an equivalent,state officialss aid. The ELECT program, which started in 1990 as a partnership between state child welfare and education officials,monitors studentsa ttendance,coordinates summer programs and links them with support systems in thec ommunity. Florida allows pregnant and parenting students tor eceive homebound instruction and lays out a clear p rocess to make up missed work. The state also gives those students the option oft aking online classes. In St. Johns County,where G onzalez lives,the school district provides free day care for teen moms and bus transportation for students and their children. Pregnant students are often stereotyped as low-a chievers,but advocates say pregnancy actually motivates s ome to do better in school. Gonzalez,whose daughter is now 2,said her gradesi mproved after she became pregnant. I did push myself a lot h arder and I made sure that I wasnt going to be that stat istic,said Gonzalez.

C M Y K You can herald the achievement even as you bemoan the manner in which it was accomplished. Grinnell Colleges Jack Taylor, as Im sure many of you heard by now, scored 138 points in a game earlier this past week. T he number, obviously, at first glance was eye-popping. Though a part of me was i mmediately skeptical, having seen too many eye-popp ing numbers that werent as i mpressive as they first appeared. It took me back to a pet peeve I used to have when Sports Illustrated used to lista number of notable athletic achievements by amateur athletes. Reading that a senior may have won a state judo championship for the fifth year ina row was always kind of neat to see. As was something like a junior golfer besting an older field in a tournament, or a high school tennis player winning the state singles championship all four years. That last one has a personal connection and a chance for me to name drop as an high school friend, Mike Morrison, actually was the second player ever to win the Illinois State Singles Tennis title each year of his high school career and did make it into that SI section. But to me, that was for individuals overcoming odds, pulling off something unexpected. What would get me were the ones where some high school football player rushed for 500 yards and eight touchdowns only to see that his team won like 76-0 overly an obviously overmatched team. And that was my first thought, that this was something akin to that. That Taylor, and or his team, was playing some school that had no business being on the court with them. That Taylor was some oversized D1 recruit who had gone DIII to get his grades up and Faith Baptist Bible College had no way of defending him. The final score seemed to hint at that, as Grinnell won 179-104. But then I saw some of the video highlights and realized that Taylor wasnt some behemoth who could jump out of the gym. He is a 5-foot-10 white kid who seems relatively quick, can handle the ball and get his own shot, has a very good outside shot and certainly isnt afraid to shoot. And those attributes were put into an overall scheme that was set up for him to shoot, and to shoot, and to shoot. F rom what Ive read and heard, the Grinnell Pioneer s game plan is something like the old Denver Nuggets runand-gun only a more modern, Red Bull-laced version. Theyll put on a full-court press, gamble for steals, but if a steal wasnt made, little other effort was made to contest any fast break that resulted from breaking it. If we get a quick steal (and on the night they got 29 of them), great, but if the other team is going to score, let them score quickly so we get the ball back. Which might explain how David Larsen of Faith Baptist poured in 70 points of his own, on a very efficient shooting night, going 34-for-44 from the field and 2-of-4 on free throws. Taylor was efficient on his two-point attempts, hitting 25-of-37 and he went 7-of10 from the line. But it was the volume taken from beyond the arc that spelled the difference. Aside from the steals and quick possession turnarounds, word is that if a shot was missed and a Pioneer player got an offensive rebound, it was to be kicked back out to give Taylor more shot opportunities. So yes, in 36 minutes of playing time, everything was funneled to Taylor to the tune of 108 shots, 71 of them from three-point range. Its not as if this is a regular occurrence for Taylor and Grinnell. At a tournament the previous weekend, he had gone 11-41 from the field over two games, and this was apparently an attempt to break Taylor out of his shooting slump. They did that, in a very big way. And so on one particular night, the system was geared to let a pretty good player shoot and shoot and shoot his way out of a slump. He got relatively hot at a certain point, put up a startling number and became a topic of conversation for the week. And thats about it. In fact, Im more impressed that he was able to take 108 shots in 36 minutes without his arm crampM yFWC.comFlorida black bears are being seen with more frequency throughout the southwest part of our state due to the influx of more people and a growing bear population. The Florida Fish and Wildlife ConservationC ommission (FWC t ions residents to store their garbage in a manner that denies bears access to it, or bears repeatedly will visit that neighborhood to obtain food. When bears easily obtain food from human s ources, they begin to associate communities with a feeding opportunity. In turn, bears develop habits around people that are difficult to change and easily obtained food makes it far less likely that a bear will move on to more suitable habitat, said Chad Allison, FWC regional wildlife biologist. Some bears are moving northward to Lehigh Acres and other areas because they were forced out by their bear relatives to the south where there is good habitat and are looking fora new home elsewhere. T hese displaced bears o ften travel through an undeveloped corridor by Lake Trafford to Lehigh Acres. If not given a humancaused feeding opportunity, these bears will continue moving through Lehigh A cres to more suitable undeveloped bear habitat. The FWC recommends the following steps to prevent human-bear conflicts: Feed your pets indoors or bring in dishes after feeding.

Nelson had 22 points, Arron Afflalo scored 19 and the Magic made 11 3-pointers in a 108-104 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night. It means a great deal to me to get this win, said Glen Davis, who had 16 points and eight rebounds. e need to get as much games as possible and try to get back to .500 and compete for the chance to be somewhere in the postseason.

Orlando led the league in made 3-pointers each of the last three seasons, but was making just over four per game this year. Dion Waiters scored 25 points for Cleveland, and Anderson Varejao had 19. The Cavaliers have lost seven of eight and face Miami on Saturday. Orlando had 16 turnovers in the first half, but just two after the break. I think that was the biggest difference, Cleveland coach Byron Scott said. We didnt get up and pressure them like we did in the first half. ... Again, we allowed another team to shoot a high percentage tonight, and those guys shot the ball pretty w ell. The Cavs also outscored t he Magic 22-8 in the paint i n the first half, but were outscored 32-18 inside in the final 24 minutes. Saddled with turnover issues in the first half, the Magic trailed for most of the game but managed to make their surge by turning some of the Cavaliersmiscues into easy points. It was tied headed to the fourth quarter, and there were eight lead changes in the final 12 minutes. Afflalo hit a 3-pointer from the wing with less than two minutes remaining, giving the Magic a 9894 lead. Afree throw and tip-in by Tyler Zeller trimmed Orlandos advantage to a point, but a driving layup by Nikola Vucevic restored the Magics three-point lead at 100-97 with 32.3 seconds to play. J.J. Redick hit eight free throws in the final minute to help the Magic hold on. The Magic also were continuing an adjustment period of sorts, with rookie Maurice Harkless receiving his second straight start at shooting guard, with Afflalo at small forward. That experiment looks promising, with the athletic Harkless looking more comfortable and contributing on both sides of the floor. Nelson helps Magic outlast Cavs MCTphoto Jameer Nelson and J.J.
