C M Y K By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING As the News-Sun reported last October,the Heartland Idol has a new home at the Highlands Family YMCA. "The Y contacted us. Once we saw the place we went,ow,said Diana Walker,the founder of the Heartland Idol talent contest. Performances will be held in the basketball pavilion. This is the third venue for the popular talent show that attracts local singers and those from outside the county. Born on the Historic Circle,the multiple day event dealt with problems in scheduling and bad weather from its beginning. Reluctantly,organizers quit the park as a venue. In 2011,Idol was held at the Highlands County Convention Center as part of the county fair. People,however,were disappointed it was only a two-day event. This year the fair and Heartland Idol had conflicting dates,Walker said, besides,the Idol really wanted a permanent home. This is why the agreement with the Y is such a relief. Wre not homeless anymore,Walker said. The organizers decided on another change and moved the event to February and March. There will be no rain delays,Walker said,and it might not be as hot. re still sticking to Thursday evenings,Walker added. The Idol Cafe will remain open,and its still bring-your-own-lawnchair,she said. Idol will start accepting participant applications on Monday. Go to Keiber Law Offices at 129 S. Commerce Ave. in Sebring,and ask for Debbie Latimer. There is a $10 entrance fee. The contest itself begins Feb. 7.A phone line will be opened soon. In the meantime,contact Walker by email at diana_party4U@live.com. There are three age divisions:adult, 18 and up; teen,13-17; and junior,12 and younger. A one-day senior contest is held for those 60 and older.

C M Y K J ennifer Clarke was busy managing a Michigan groc ery store when she got a phone call from her husband. He told her she needed to come home from work. I said I cant leave,Im i n charge of the store, Jennifer told The Unknown Soldiers. Then I remember plain as day,my husband said Jennifer,there are two men here in military uniforms. J ennifers heart dropped as she let go of the phone a nd ran out the door. Her son,Pfc. Shane Cantu,was in Afghanistan,and all that the military mom wanted was for him to come homea live. Please,let my son only be injured,the tearful mother said as she drove home ina panic. W hen she walked into her Corunna,Mich.,home,a young soldier tried to maintain his composure while delivering an official casualty notification from the U.S. Army. Not my boy,Jennifer replied. Hes coming home, right? No maam,the solemn soldier replied. He was killed in action in Afghanistan on Aug. 28, 2012. Jennifer,hoping she would soon wake from a nightmare, collapsed on the floor. ou just dont think things like this will hit close to your community,she said. According to the Department of Defense,Pfc. Cantu,20,died after he was wounded by shrapnel in eastern Afghanistan. He was serving with the Armys 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team,based in Vicenza,Italy. As the grieving mother reflected less than five months after her only sons death,Jennifer spoke of the last time she corresponded with Shane,who knew his young life was in peril. s getting crazy over here,mom,the soldier said. I cant promise you Ill be home. Those difficult words will always be with Jennifer,who knows her sons last days were filled with anguish. On Aug. 15,less than two weeks before Shanes death,his close friend and fellow soldier,Pfc. AndrewKeller,22, was killed by enemy small arms fire,according to the Pentagon. Shane,who wrotea stirring eulogy in Afghanistan that his mom would later deliver to Pfc. Kellers family,blamed himself. I told him you have to stay strong,Jennifer said. Shane,a former high school football star,joined the Army to better his country. But as he told his mother after boot camp,he also wanted to better himself. He hugged me,told me he loved me,and said Mom, this was the best thing I ever could have done for myselfJennifer said. The soldiers mother said that Shane,who was known for his smile and sense of humor,wanted to serve in Afghanistan so badly that he broke down and cried after a prior deployment was cancelled. I didnt join the Army to sit back and watch,Shane said. I joined to be a leader. Instead of waiting for a future opportunity,Shane pleaded his case to an Army officer. The First Lieutenant, who immediately saw the young soldiers potential, w ould later tell Jennifer how much Shane impressed him. s men like him that make our country strong, the officer said. When Shane eventually left for Afghanistan in July 2012,Jennifer,like any caring mother,was deeply concerned. I was heartbroken,but I knew thats where he needed to be,she said. As his mother,I stood behind him and I stood proud. Jennifer will always stand behind her son,who hoped to become a U.S. marshal when his military career concluded. To honor Shanes memory,Jennifer has set upa scholarship fund through the Shiawassee Community Foundation to assist students pursuing law enforcement careers. Pfc. Shane Cantu was 9 years old when America was attacked on Sept. 11,2001. Yet while growing from boy to man,he developed a devotion to family and freedom thats inspired Americans a cross all walks of life. I get notes saying, Thank you for your sacrifices,the fallen heros mom said. I walk into stores and people hug me and say God bless yourf amily. On Sept. 6,Jennifer Clarke watched in awe as hundreds lined Michigan streets to honor the arrival of Shanes flag-draped casket. While her son didntc ome home alive,Shanes proud mother realized that h is selfless spirit most certainly did. This is for my boy,she said.

Now,thanks to our dysf unctional and devious Congress,we have junk laws like the Taxpayer Relief Act. Junk laws are really n othing new.The people we send to Washington to r epresent us have been passing legislation larded with pork or special privi-l eges for their friends in business,agriculture and l abor since the country was born. Insiders have always k nown how this cynical bipartisan game is played. But now,thanks to the failure of Congress to deal with the government debtc risis it in large part created,the average American is starting to become aware of these junk bills. Even the liberal media w ere outraged by what went on when Congress p assed the American Taxpayer Relief Act of2 012 which,ironically, raised the taxes of every working American by 2 percent by returning the Social Security tax to itsu sual 6.2 percent level. The Fiscal Cliff Bill did virtually nothing to solve the federal governments money problems orc reate a single job. But it was junked up with nearly $70 billion of pure pork including tax credits for the owners of NASCAR racetracks,wind turbine makers,Hollywood moviemakers and rum-makers in Puerto Rico. While President Obama was promising to raise taxes on the rich but really shafting the working poor, congressional folk were so busy loading up the Fiscal Cliff Billwith presents for their friends that they forgot to pass the relief bill to benefit victims of Hurricane Sandy. Members of Congress are grandmasters of deceit and dishonesty. Taking maximum advantage of every crisis or disaster that comes along,they attach their favorite pieces of pork to dishonestly named bills such as the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012and the Affordable Healthcare Act. Members know these big important super-bills have to pass to avert a crisis,so they junk them up with their $200 million Bridges to Nowhereand their $59 million tax credits for the algae-growing industry. A perfect example of how Congress gets its junk bills passed has to with the way it funds FEMA. Congress always underfunds the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Why? Because Congress knows each year there will always be a natural disaster like Hurricane Sandy that FEMA will need billions of federal dollars to address. And when FEMA comes a sking for emergency funding,members of Congress w ill clean out their closets and throw every piece of junk legislation they have i nto the relief bill,which they know will automatically pass without scrutiny. Another reason we get junk laws is that few mem-b ers of Congress actually read these monster bills before they vote for them. Nancy Pelosis career quote is going to be her commento n the healthcare bill,But we have to pass the bill so y ou can find out what is in it. L aw-making is not supposed to work that way. There's a rule in Congress that a bill has to be posted for 48 hours before it canb e voted on. But that rule has become a joke. Just watch C-SPAN the next time a vote is being taken in the House. Youllp robably hear someone say something like,Under suspension of the rule, we'll now vote. What arcane parliamentary rule are they talking about? The 48-hour rule. No wonder Congress is always finding out after they vote what they just voted for. If members of Congress don't read the damn bill,they shouldn't vote on it. Im getting real tired of people saying,My guys a good guy and your guys a bad guy.There all acting like bad guys. We need to start holding every member of Congress accountable. And we need more up-and-down votes in Congress,so that the next important piece of legislation doesn't become another Fiscal Cliff Junk Bill. Copyright Michael Reagan.

Making Sense Michael Reagan Junk laws Right to know vs good judgment R ecently,a New York state newspaper,the Journal News ,stirred more controversy last month by publishingt he names and addresses,complete with map,of handgun permit owners. All the records were public and access ible to anyone who wished to r etrieve it. But the question is why? T he information did not really serve any purpose other than to increase the controversy. Publishing that informa-t ion was ill advised and could even lead to more problems in the future. It definitely widened the gap between t he opposing sides of gun control. In fact,several of the names were law enforcement,prison guards,firstr esponders and others of those who put their lives on the line everyday to serve and protect. N ice to know that the inmate you a re guarding read your home address during library privileges. J ust because you can,and the information is available,it is not always a dvisable to lay it out there. T he information about sex is readily available to anyone who has a TV o r computer,but do you go about showing explicit pictures to firstg raders? Certainly not. When all the yelling happens,it is the medias job to report and record.I t is responsible to ask each side for their opinion and facts. Not hand the mob rocks then report the mob threwt he rocks. When a news agency seeks to enflame rather than enlighten,then ith as truly over-stepped the bounds of good taste and ethical consideration. E ven if the information is public. I nformation is power,but all power must be tempered with good judgm ent. W e at the News-Sun believe you can support the publics right to know w ithout endangering the public. We are first to promote access to public records,but a newspaper also has to use good judgment with that freedom. The experts are giving it little chance of passage,but H.J. Resolution 15 is stirring a lot of talk. U.S. Rep. Jose Serrano (D-NYonce again introduced a resolution to repeal the 22nd Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. If the resolution is approved by Congress and ratified by the states,it would once again allow a president to serve more than two four-year terms. Doomsayers are already up in arms about the possibilities of an American monarchy.They fear an individual would become permanently entrenched in the office,either by clever abuse of power or by our just getting used to him,like that irregularly shaped mole on your back that you keep meaning to do something about. (I swear,Im voting that guy out of office next time ooo,theres a Three Stooges marathon on cable!) Yeah,right. The freedom to run multiple grueling reelection campaigns is Number One on the wish list of would-be tyrants in Third World nations. (Lets see...I could pump millions into a never-ending series of campaign ads or I could pump hot lead into my predecessor and any opposition. *Sigh* Decisions,decisions. Other voters fear that even the most honorable chief executive would inevitably outlive his sell-bydate. Instead of traveling everywhere with Air Force One, he'd travel everywhere with Fiber One. Hed have to get his grandkids to help him figure out how to press the launch-the-nukes button. When he sought to buy our votes with goodies,hed do it in a trench coat,near the playground. Of course some of the behind-the-scenes manipulators would never be satisfied. (Yknow,if we replaced his blood with that stuff they used to put in Twinkies,hed probably have another two or three terms of shelf life. Perhaps those squeamish about the resolution would be pacified if it provided for a gradual decline of presidential perks each time a president was re-elected. Besides reductions in salary and medical care,this could include changing the Lincoln bedroom linens only once every fourscore and seven years or secretly replacing one random Secret Service agents gun with a Super Soaker. We could also find ways to handicap the incumbent each time he sought reelection. Maybe all the photo opswould require the chief of staff to make devil horns behind the presidents head, or Hail To The Chiefcould be altered to sound more like The Chicken Dance. Some citizens are satisfied that a president would eventually jump the sharkin TV terms and ruin his own immortality. (Instead of a new White House cat,we're adopting a cute British kid. And waitll you see the zany new neighbors moving into 1601 Pennsylvania Avenue!") Repealing the 22nd Amendment is not a priority for me,but its certainly a fascinating topic that cries out for discussion. Whatever your political leanings,the various what if?scenarios show just how complex the whole issue is. If Ronald Reagan had served extra terms,would there have been a Clinton presidency? If Bill had hung around longer,would there have been a Barack Obama White House? Its enough to make Marty McFly jump into the DeLorean with Doc Brown and yell Cmon, Doc,were going back to the days of wooden teeth! Danny Tyree.

Judge David Langford ordered the case to proceedt o trial. The court finds that in addition to legal issues to be decided,there are disputes over genuine issues of material fact that should be decid-e d by a jury,he wrote. A provisional date for the trial was set for April 8. B efore then,however, Rowan and the city have agreed to sit for a mediations ession scheduled for Jan. 22. Should an agreement be r eached,there will be no need for a trial. Should mediation be u nsuccessful,the trial proc eeds,but there is a complication. Brian Koji,thec itys labor attorney,is scheduled to be in court on another case April 8. If the timing conflictc ant be resolved,the trial would be postponed. Rowans suit stems back a year and a half,when Avon Park City Manager Julian Deleon suspended Rowanw ithout pay on June 13,2011 after Rowan could not come t o terms with the city on a separation agreement. Rowan had come under f ire after it was learned he had investigated a number of c ity council members, including Mayor Sharon S chuler and Deputy Mayor Brenda Gray,regarding citizen complaints about corruption and Sunshine Law violations. A major issue in the case is whether Rowan was put on administrative leave,then suspended,then fired in response to his investigation. R owan is asking for his job back,back wages and damages in one count of contract violation and one count of a whistleblower" allegation. A whistleblower lawsuit isw hen employees allege they were punished for reporting p ossible wrong doings about their employers.

C M Y K Football; Ed McPadden, Marion County Schools, Baseball/AD; Marcia Pinder,Ft. Lauderdale-D illard,Basketball; John Wilkinson,Cocoa,Football; and Joe Franza,Avon Park, Football. Franza and Hayford are b eing honored posthumously. To be eligible for induction,a mini-m um of 20 years of service in the coaching profession,in Florida,a nd/or participation in FACA is required. C riteria for selection are based on coaching record, championships won,headc oaching tenure,FACA service and awards. F ranzas induction came after an exhaustive,threeyear effort by former Red Devil quarterback Reggie Butler. I played for him from 1956-58,and my two brothe rs also played for him, Butler said in a phone interview Thursday.Not onlyw as he a great football coach,he was a leader of y oung men. He wasnt one to scream and holler,but he was aM arine Corps guy,who was tough and no-nonsense. He was worshiped by all of us t hat played for him,he continued. A few years ago we h ad a party at his ranch,and there were hundreds,if not more than a thousand people who showed up. It was heartwarming to see allt hose people who had played for him over the years. According to his biography on the Avon Park Champions Club webpage, Joe Franza was born on Dec.2 9,1924 in Murphysboro, Ill. A t Murphysboro High School he was,ironically enough,a Red Devil,and a multi-sport star,lettering in football and baseball,asw ell as a state champion pole vaulter. He enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps in 1942,serving in the South Pacific as ac ommunications specialist until the end of the World War II. He returned to marry his high school sweetheart and earned an athletic scholarship first at the nearby University of Southern Illinois in Carbondale,and then Erskine College,where he graduated in 1949. He was inducted into the Erskine College Hall of Fame in 1985 for his prowess in basketball,track and football during the two years he was there. Franza then came down to Florida and began what would be a distinguished career at Avon Park High School which spanned 31 years. He coached from 1949 until 1972,during which time the Red Devil footballt eam had 138 wins,68 loses and 10 ties. During this time they reached nine title games, earned five RidgeC onference titles,three district titles and one regional title. He was named Coach of the Year in 1962. D uring his tenure,teams were known for their physicality and toughness. Franza also concentrated a great deal of effort on f ielding as many players as possible during a game. Even the most unlikely a thlete found his way into a game if he was willing to work hard and followi nstructions. He also served as the athl etic director and worked in the community with an athletic association for fundr aising. Due to personal illness in 1 972,he retired from coaching but continued on as athletic director and served as a Dean of Students until 1980. In 1984,Franza was electe d to his first of two terms on the Highlands County S chool Board,serving as chairman for one of those years. O ne of his proudest moments was the dedication o f the Avon Park High School stadium to him. Throughout his life he w as an active man and an avid outdoorsman,during retirement he took up golf, the guitar and wood crafting. H e was a Past Worshipful Master of the Masonic Lodge,a Rotarian,and a member of Union Congregational Church. H e was a man of honor,a dedicated husband,father, g randfather,friend and patriot. One great innovation F ranza began was the Avon Park Circus,which ran from 1 951-60. That really evolved from the short football season, B utler said. There was a lot of time until baseball season,which a lot of the guys also played,but this gave usa chance to stay in shape. We were also a bunch of kids from blue collar homes, and the circus really opened our eyes to other things, opened our minds,he cont inued. So much of what he did,his leadership,becomi ng a family and opening us up to new things,he really helped set us on a path tog reatness. The Florida Athletic C oaches Association is comprised of more than 5,000 member coaches,both high s chool and college,in the state of Florida. The FACA sponsors 10 High School All-Star Classics in nine sports,con-d ucts four coaching clinics each year and recognizes coaches for the exemplary efforts supporting the youth of this state. By BARRY FOSTER N ews-Sun correspondentSEBRING This is generally the time that Highlands County staff members begin plotting their budget for theu pcoming fiscal year. However,this time it appears they will have an eye toward planning for two. At their meeting Tuesday, H ighlands County Administrator June Fisher told commissioners she had been working on a timeline for biennial budgeting and a plano f action for implementation should commissioner approve the concept. T he idea of biennial budgeting has been a part of the commissioners short termg oals list for over a year. There was a presentation on s uch apolicy last February and it was again discussed at the commission's last meet-i ng of the year. At that time,Highlands C ounty Administrative Project Manager Chris Benson gave commissionersa powerpoint presentation on the budget process. The ideai s to plan for budgeting and fiscal projections for two c onsecutive fiscal years. Just like current one-year budgeting,allocations and other adjustments may be made as the process goesa long throughout the year. The hope is that by planning for two fiscal years,there will be less of a workload by employees planning for theirb udget each spring. Calling it an extremely valuable planning tool, Fisher noted that although it would be time-consuming upf ront,there would be efficencies as the years progressed. I thing there may be some g rowing pains in this, echoed commissioner Don Elwell. D uring the presentation, Hightlands County C ommission Chairman Jack Richie told Fisher there was a consensus of the board toc ontinue with the process, noting that he would like to s ee budget planning begin by the end of January. Fisher told commissioners they could expect a full report at their next regularm eeting on Jan. 15. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, January 11, 2013Page 5A child had not eaten for several days,according to reports.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK Asure sign of progression is getting under another teams skin. In the ongoing uptick that the season has been for Avon Park Lady Devils socc er, Tuesdays Senior Night celebration was evidence of that progression in a 4-0 loss to visiting Ridge. The Lady Bolts came into the contest with a strong 117-6 overall record, and might have been forgiven if they looked at the Devils 1-12-1 mark and didnt expect much resistance. But if that were the case, then they werent paying much attention to the turnaround the program is in the midst of under first-year head coach Chris Sboto. From the start, Ridge was the stronger and more prec ise team, controlling the early action on the Avon Park side of the field. But they sure didnt outhustle the Lady Devils who made nothing easy for them. And sure, sophomore keeper Rosa Cuellar made a number of saves, but she wasnt exactly diving all over and fending off rocket shots from the Bolts. The Devil defense clamored, clawed and contested Ridge all over the place, and those shots on goal were much more in quantity than in quality. And though most of the first half was spent on the Devils end, they were able to clear the ball out and send it deep toward Georgi Biberstein and Josianna Fils. And so it went for the first 40 minutes as Avon Park stayed strong and saw a 0-0 tie at the half. Looking at us from the beginning of the season, we have improved a lot, senior Tiffany Card said. Ev en though we didnt win this one, we played our hearts out and it really showed because the (Ridge and telling his girls that we shouldnt be playing at their level. At halftime, the Devils p aid homage for the last home game for a host of outgoing seniors, including Card, Biberstein, Fils, Esther Arnold, Darlene Satine, Alexis Queen and Noemi Secundino, who have played key roles in getting the programs turnaround going. Sure, the Bolts regrouped By DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK In what has been an up and down season for Avon Park basketball, Tuesday night was defi-n itely one that would go in the up column, even if the result was a bit of a downer. But thats because an 81-73 loss to v isiting Tampa Catholic had so many positive signs. F or it was six weeks and 10 games ago that the Devils went on the road to T ampa and were demolished by the Crusaders by a 77-34 margin. F rom a 43-point loss to an eight-point difference, one glaring improvement. Not to mention that it was Avon Park controlling things early, wreaking havoc defensively and getting inside for scores on the other end. Our defense works from the paint out, first-year head coach Marty OHora said. We will give up a three any day over letting their bigs get inside. And it was working, as forays toward the hoop in the half court were defended well and saw Travis Lawton swatting one Will Kenyon lay-up attempt away emphatically. That defense held Tampa Catholic to just 13 first-quarter points, and helped get the offense going to the tune of 20 for a seven-point margin after one. The second and third quarters saw the Crusaders begin to heat up from the three-point line, but the Devils stayed with them, getting a flurry of second-quarter points from Gus Owens on a variety of short jumpers, floaters and leaners, with Alfred Brown connecting from downtown as well. Tampa chipped into the lead, however, and were down one at the half, 36-35, and were able to nudge into the lead after a high-scoring third, 61-60, heading into the final eight minutes. But thats where the old adage of you can win by the three, or lose by the three worked out to the Crusaders advantage. While the Devils had by now cordoned off the key with a virtual No Entry sign, Tampa got hot from long range. The problem (with our defense when you play a team that is shooting threes like they are layups, OHora said. That second half, I think they only missed one three out of the 10 or SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, January 11, 2013 Page 3B News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE D arlene Satine is not about to let this Lady Bolt get to the ball in Tuesdays Senior Night contest in Avon Park.

Devils cut down late by Crusaders Tampa C.81Avon Park73 Ridge4A von Park0 By ERIKACORD News-Sun correspondentS EBRING Tuesday nights loss against Kathleen left the Lady Blue Streak basketball players a littled own. With a final score of 58-44 i n Kathleens favor, the well fought game had come to an e nd and the Lady Devils had exacted a bit of revenge. S porting an 11-4 overall record coming in, one of those losses was a 55-49 Sebring win on Tuesday, Dec. 11, on Kathleens home court. And so the visiting Devils had a bit of atonement on their minds. Kathleen showed their skills in the first quarter with a total of 13 points, most as part of an early scoring run, but Sebring didnt let them get that far ahead with Alexxis Harris and Rondaja Williams putting points on the board with a couple of layups. Christacia Dawkins kicked it into gear in the last seconds of the first with a three pointer, catching the game back up to a score of 13-8 at the end of the quarter. In the second quarter, the Streaks kept up the intensity, and made it a three-point game with the opening score of those eight minutes. But Kathleen gave it right back to Sebring with a sevenpoint run to open it up to 10. Sebrings Shalontay Rose stole the ball and ran it down the court and finished with a layup, followed by a Jazmin House layup at the end of the first half, keeping them in the game. The third quarter was filled with excitement as both teams kept a constant back and forth. W ith Kathleen getting the first two points of the quarter, Sebring replied with a three pointer by Williams.

For Yates, venerable Al Chipps, who soon turns 95, had three hits and three RBI, including the game winner. Dick Cook (two doubles, triple) had five hits, while Ed Engler hit for the cycle. Paul Brand (double, triple) and Woody Hoffman had four hits apiece. Pitched Jeff Stanley aided his own cause with a home run. Manager Joe Hedges led Central with five hits (double, triple) and Tom Walsh had four singles. Seminole Tire (1-1 topped Schoonis (0-2 23. For Seminole, Howard Carney and Jim Hensley combined for nine singles and were one base often for home runs off the bats of Darrel Richards, Norm Grubbs, Gary Pixley and Bill Card. For Schoonis, home run power came from Richard Rucker and Denis Cuillerier. Tom Ashley (double, triple) and pitcher Victor Rodriguez had four hits each.

C M Y K Many people worry that by going to an orthopaedics urgeon,they are going to need surgery. Orthopaedics is a specialty that did not split in to two specialties medicine (think cardiolo-g ists) and surgery (think cardiothoracic surgeons) for treatment of bones,muscles, nerves and joints. Orthopaedists work withr heumatologists if you have some types of arthritis and physical medicine and rehabilitation doctors for long term rehab.The neurologists help them test nerves. Fore verything else,the orthopaedist takes care of y ou whether or not you need surgery. There are many things t hat can go wrong with your shoulder. In the older age g roup,rotator cuff problems are one of the most common. The shoulder socket is very shallow.The rotator cuff muscles work to pullt he head of the humerus into the socket and begin the lift. T hey also,as the name implies,help in rotating your arm. T he tendons are between two bones the ball of the h umerus and the underneath side of the joint. The collarbone (clavicle) makes a jointw ith a protrusion from the shoulder blade (scapula called the acromion. Like m any joints as you age,this joint can become arthritic a nd develop spurs. Most of these spurs grow downward making the space for the rotator cuff tendons narrow. The edges of the spurs arer ough. First the tendon is irritated by the spur and over time,the spur can make a hole or tear in the rotator cuff. Acute rotator cuff tears occur with injury such as an auto acci-d ent or falling f rom a ladder and catchingy ourself so that all y our weight goes on one arm. X-rays are t aken to make sure the bone has not been broken or the joint dislocated. Because motion is limited by pain,it is difficult to tell if the cuffi s torn. Initial treatment is pain medicine and,if you can take them,anti-inflammatories. Physical therapy is also helpful in decreasingt he pain and getting your shoulder moving again. I n those with shoulder pain that gradually got worse without an accident,x-rays are not predictive of the outcome. A short course of ther-a py consisting of modalities such as ice,heat and ultras ound and hands onmobilization and working out the tight spots in the muscle ist he most useful initial treatment. With this therapy,607 0 percent will begin to get better. This group just needs a little more therapy.Those t hat are not better after two to three weeks of therapy need further workup either with an MRI or cine. The cine is a motion pict ure of your shoulder moving. Because these machines use a computer to form the image,there is very little radiation. The MRI is betterf or those who do not have a lot of motion even without t herapy. The exception that generally occurs with some type of trauma is if your shoulder hunches when you try tor aise it. This is an indicator of a large rotator cuff tear a nd requires surgery. If you can move you arm without pain,but feel pain iny our shoulder you may have a problem in your neck. The m ost commonly pinched neck nerve is the one to the shoulder. Surgery and treatm ent of neck caused shoulder pain are a subject for the next column. D r. Diana D.

To spare my guilt,are there any benefits to holidayf oods and spices? D. E. Orlando,Fla. Answer: Dont worry about it,we all shamed ourselves. Your savingg race is that all those delicious spices have numerous medicinal benefits,and d keep sprinkling and cooking with them all year long. Nutmeg can ease indigestion,great,since you a te two sweet potato pies in one sitting. Nutmeg kills bacteria that causesb ad breath,woo hoo. By killing off some nasty i ntestinal bacteria,there may be less flatulence. It causes some people to get sleepy,so sprinkle some into a warm cup of almondm ilk before bed. Ginger may help prev ent colon and ovarian cancer. It seems to help with morning sickness,m otion sickness,chronic fatigue,asthma,erectile d ysfunction,heartburn, menstrual cramps,and even the common cold.G inger is most famous for its anti-nausea effect,as well as its ability to ease a rthritis over time because its a potent anti-inflamm atory. Cinnamon may improve cholesterol ratios, and in particular,lower LDL cholesterol and helps tabilize blood sugar (great for type 2 diabetes). When you balance blood sugar, you control appetite so,of course,this translates to possible weight loss,so long as the rest of yourd iet is the color of a rainbow. Your brain loves cinn amon as much as your taste buds,meaning your memory and brain function could improve. Cinnamon, like nutmeg,has anti-fun-g al and anti-bacterial properties. Cloves may very well be the strongest antioxidant known to man. Inh igh enough quantities, compounds in cloves reduce iron. This is good if you havehemochromatosis. Cloves may help with diarrhea,intestinal parasites,thyroid problems, infections and lymphoma. Essential oil of clove oil may relieve pain,if youa pply it to a toothache. Pumpkin,something t hat my husband Sam puts in many of his famous smoothies,contains fiber,s ome antioxidants (like vitamin A,C and E) and B v itamins which improve the appearance of skin, and reduce wrinkles. Nutrients in pumpkin can reduce risk of maculard egeneration,thus protecting your eyesight. P umpkins (and the seeds are great sex aids.If you think about it,all that zincs upports prostate health, and thats great for men t racking sperm count (for fertility concerns),and men seeking a higher sexd rive. I wont mislead you, it doesnt work like Viagra. Maple syrup,my favorite,is a great substit ute for sugar and its just natural tree sap. It has fewer calories and its more nutrient dense than many other sweetenersb ecause it has 54 different antioxidants,including one powerful one called quebecolnamed for where it was discovered. Even though it tastes sweet, some of maple syrupsc ompound lower blood sugar,and protect our D NA (which could reduce risk of runaway cells and cancer). Honey is another fabulous sweetener loaded with health benefits whichi s a yummy way to soothe chapped lips.

Snapshots Randy Merrill Evangelistic Team kicks off concert series Courtesy photo Randy Merrill Evangelistic Team will perform in Maranatha Baptist Churchs first concert of its winter series at 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 18. An elderly couple were on an ocean cruise when as torm arose. They were standing near the back of the ship when a giant wave washed up and over the boat,sweeping the old mano verboard. The crew searched for days but could not find him. The captain sent the old woman back to shore andp romised that he would notify her as soon as something was found. Three weeks passed when the old woman finally received a message fromt he captain. It read: Maam,I am sorry to i nform you,but we found your husbands body at the bottom of the ocean. Weh auled him up on deck,and an oyster was attached to h is backside. Inside the oyster was a pearl worth $50,000. The old woman responded with the following mes-s age:Captain,please send me the pearl,and re-bait t he trap. It is easy to poke fun at the relationship between ah usband and his wife. It is the substance of many come dy routines and late-night talk shows. However,as funny as some of thosej okes are,the institution of marriage is no laughing matter. In fact,with the c onstant attack that marriage receives from society, t he media,and our courts of law,there is little wonder that the divorce rate is so high and that marriage substitutes(such as livingt ogether outside of the marriage relationship,same-sex marriages,etc.) are on the rise. The consequences of these types of thinking result in the breakdown of the home and the morald egradation of our nation. Perhaps,we have allowed o thers to do our thinking for us for too long. Perhaps, we have allowed our culturet o define for us the function of the man and the woman. P erhaps,we have forgotten Gods plan for a husband and his wife and the individual role each one is to play. Perhaps,we simplyn eed to go back to the Bible to determine what m arriage was designed to be by its original designer. Read the following i nstructions from the inspired apostle Pauls lett er to the church in Ephesus. Consider the distinctive roles God gaveb oth the man and woman inside the bond of marriage. Then,examine the respons ibilities of both husband and wife to love and respect e ach other. No marriage can achieve greater success than the one functioning in the manner God intended for it to function. Wives,be subject to your own husbands,as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife,as Christ also is the head oft he church,He Himself being the Savior of the body. But as the church is subject to Christ,so also the wives ought to be tot heir husbands in everything. Husbands,love your wives,just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her,so thatH e might sanctify her,having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word,that He might present to Himself the church in all her glory,having no spot orw rinkle or any such thing; but that she would be holy a nd blameless. So husbands ought also to love their own wives as their own bodies.H e who loves his own wife loves himself; for no one e ver hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it,just as Christ also does the church,because we are members of His body. Fort his reason a man shall leave his father and mother a nd shall be joined to his wife,and the two shall become one flesh. Thism ystery is great; but I am speaking with reference to C hrist and the church. Nevertheless,each individual among you also is tol ove his own wife even as himself,and the wife must see to it that she respects h er husband.(Ephesians 5:22-33) Kevins Komments is presented by the Sebring Parkway churcho f Christ assembling at 3800 S ebring Parkway.

C M Y K Associated PressLOS ANGELES Lance A rmstrong has agreed to an interview with Oprah Winfrey in which he is to address allegations he used performance-enhancing drugs during a career in which he won seven Tour de France titles. According to Winfres website on Tuesday,this will be a no holds-barred interview.It will be the first with Armstrong since his cycling career crumbled under the weight of a massive report by the U.S. AntiDoping Agency.The report detailed accusations of drugu se by Armstrong and teammates on his U.S. Postal Service teams. Its unclear if the interview at Armstrongs home in Austin,Texas,has already been taped. Nicole Nichols,a spokeswoman for Oprah Winfrey Network & Harpo Studios,declined comment. The show will be broadcast Jan. 17 at 9 p.m. EST on OWN and Oprah.com. Armstrong has strongly denied the doping charges that led to him being stripped of his Tour de France titles,but The NewY ork Times reported Friday he has told associates he is considering acknowledging the use of performance enhancers. The newspaper report cited anonymous sources, and Armstrong lawyer Tim Herman told The Associated Press that night he had no knowledge of Armstrong considering a confession. Earlier Tuesday, Minutes Sportsreported the head of USADA told the show a representative for Armstrong offered the agency a donationin excess of $150,000 severaly ears before an investigation by the organization led to the loss of Armstrongs Tour de France titles. In an interview for the premiere on Showtime on Wednesday night,USADA chief executiveTravis Tygart said he was stunnedwhen he received the offer in 2004. It was a clear conflict of interest for USADA,Tygart said. We had no hesitation in rejecting that offer. Herman denied such an offer was made. Dear Abby: I u sed to be close friends with Colette.W e were so close that I asked her to be a bridesmaid in my April wedding. O ver the last several years of our friendship,Colette b ecame selfish and domineering. It didnt bother me so much before,because If elt her positive qualities outweighed the negative. H owever,after several recent incidents,I finally told her I was upset. She offered a cop-out response,and we have not communicateds ince then. That was a month ago. H ow do I let her know that I want to withdraw my request for her to be ab ridesmaid? I dont want to hurt her feelings,but my w edding will be a small,private affair,and her presence would be painful and disrup-t ive to me and another bridesmaid who recently hada similar experience with h er. Colette may not be burni ng with desire to come anyway,given our falling out, and hasnt yet incurred any of the expenses or spent any of the time and effort associ-a ted with being a bridesmaid. I dont want to act unkindly,even though I dont plan on rekindling the friendship. Needs Perspective in Kansas Dear Needs: Tell Colette p olitely that your plans have changed and that you have d ecided to scale backthe wedding; therefore your wedding party will be smaller and you wont need her after all. Its euphemistice nough that it could be taken to mean that finances have dictated your decision, which would be face-saving for her. I f she feels as you suspect she does,she may be relieved to be let off the hook. And if not,well you dont plan on continuing your friendship with her in any case. Do not make the conversation anything but polite and brief. Dear Abby: My mother had to be placed in a nursing home a year and a half ago. It has been a difficult time in our lives. She had two small,adorable dogs that kept her company for many years. I have kept them at her home and provide daily care and love to them. I tried to find them a loving home,to no avail. I cant bring them to my home because Im allergic to dogs. There accustomed to beingi ndoors,and the elderly one cant stand the extreme heat in our area. My problem is my brother. He knows I need a good home for Moms dogs,buth e went out and bought another dog for his family.I w as hurt and angry when he told me,but tried not to show it. Im bitter about itb ecause Moms pets still need a home. I m finding it hard to speak to my brother now. I have never had a mean bone in my body or felt this way before,but I dont under-s tand how he could do this. Am I wrong to feel this w ay? I respect your opinion, so could you advise me? Doggone It! D ear Doggone It!: Your feelings are understandable. H owever,before you let them degenerate into lasting antipathy,have a frank talkw ith your brother.Tell him your feelings and find out why he didnt volunteer to t ake in your mothers dogs. There is nothing to be g ained by stewing in silence, and he may have had a reason. You might have better luck finding a home for yourm others dogs if you contact no-kill shelters and rescue groups in your area. The dogs might be ideal companions for another senior if they are loving and housebroken. Most shelters offer a senior for seniordiscount where qualified senior citiz ens can adopt a senior companion animal,usually seven years old or older,with all fees waived.

The point most stressed in these previews ist hat every song in the movie is being sung live; that unprecedented steps have been taken to ensure that we do not have to put upw ith the phoniness of lipsynching. Needless to say, the task was a tremendousu ndertaking for everyone from the actors to the film crew to the musicians whor ecorded the score to match the actorspace instead of t he other way around. Such a tremendous effort cannot go unrewarded,so I mades ure to maintain a powerful respect for the film as its t wo and a half hours slogged along and its music,so painstakingly crafted,became more and more of a nuisance. T he film is based on a wildly successful Broadway m usical,itself based on a 19th-century French novel by Victor Hugo. The storyc enters on Jean Valjean (Hugh Jackmana former p risoner who changes his identity and breaks parole to start a new life free from h is label as a criminal. This does not sit well with Javert (Russell Crowe),a prison guard turned police inspector tasked with bringingV aljean to justice. Years later,Valjeans fear of Javert causes to him inadvertently ruin of the life ofa factory worker named F antine (Anne Hathaway). Desperate to atone,Valjean a dopts Fantines daughter Cosette away from a coupleo f crooked innkeepers (Sacha Baron Cohen and Helena Bonham Carter) and raises her as his own. Cosette grows up and falls in love with a fiery revolut ionary named Marius (Eddie RedmayneValjean struggles to evade Javert and protect Cosette without deviating from his own patht o redemption. The performances are all t op-notch,as one would expect in a film made withs uch rampant dedication. Jackman is everything one could hope for in Jean Valjean:dashing,patient, brave and tortured. Hathaway absolutely nails The Impossible Dream (perhaps the most wellknown song of the film) and will almost certainly earn an Academy Award nomina-t ion if not a win for her sadly-too-brief performa nce. Id also like to bring attention to Samantha Barks,who turns out to beq uite the scene-stealer as Eponine,the daughter of t he devious innkeepers who harbors a crush on Marius. Its hard to believe that M arius would chase after the sheltered Cosette when he has a tigress like Eponine in his life. I cant object to the quali ty of the music in the film, but I do object to its quantity. I cant stand it when musicals insist that every line of dialogue be sung.T hey should do a big production number and then r est for a minute so we can get excited for the next one.T he former approach is the reason why I hated the stage version of Rentand the latter is why I loved the 2005 film adaptation. Les Miserablesconsists of 49 s ongs,and while none of them are badnecessarily, their overabundance makes the greater ones seem less special and the lesser onesd ownright superfluous. Les Miserablesshould o nly be seen by people who are prepared for two and a half straight hours of musi-c al numbers. This is not a movie for people who arent p articularly fond of musicals but think they can tolerate it for the sake of a l oved one. That said,the film was made passionately and expertly and the effort has paid off. For better or worse,youll come outh umming your favorite songs. Ive got Master of the Housestuck in my head myself,but Id love to hear from you and find outw hich songs are dominating your brain. Les Miserables is rated PG-13 for suggestive and sexual material, violence and thematic elements. Its running time is 157 m inutes. Contact Bob Garver at rrg251@nyu.edu.

C M Y K Family Features In todays busy,on-the-go world,having a haven to come home to is a must. And for many people,that sanctuary is the bedroom. In fact,a recent study by Leggett & Platt Adjustable Bed Group found that 90 percent of people surveyed want their master suite to be a tranquil retreat. odays bedroom is for more than just sleeping,says Emily Henderson,host of Secrets from a Stylistand HGTVs Season 5 Design Starwinner. From working and engaging with media to reading,relaxing and watching TV,we are doing more in our bedrooms than before. But that doesnt mean we have to compromise great style and comfort. I like to help create spaces that are comfortable and exude warmth no matter their use. Henderson recently shared a few of her designer secrets to help anyone create a peaceful and luxurious haven.Choose the Right Color PaletteColor really sets the mood for a room. While soft,cool colors and neutrals create a soothing mood,strong colors add drama. Henderson says that some colors,such as red,yellow and hot colors like fuchsia and orange,can feel aggressive. As much as I love a bold color,I often work with blues,grays and creams as the dominant colors for a bedroom,says Henderson. Go for a neutral like taupe or ivory if you want it to feel warmer,or a cooler neutral like light blue or grey if you want it to feel more calming. Then you can add hits of a stronger accent color. A good rule of thumb when choosing colors is 60-30-10. Sixty percent of the room should be the dominant color (walls),30 percent a secondary color (upholstery percent an accent color (accessories. When choosing your colors,start with something you love as your inspiration. It can be a painting,a pillow or even your favorite vase. Use that item to build out the perfect color palette for your bedroom.Beautify Your Bed and BeddingThe Better Sleep Council says that,in general,a mattress set that has been in use for seven years should be replaced in order to give you the best comfort and support possible. If its time to replace your mattress,think about upgrading your whole bed,says Henderson. An adjustable bed can offer not only customizable comfort but a chic look, too. I have one from Leggett & Platts Designer Series that lets me adjust the head, knees and feet and I have massage options. Its made a big difference in my life,and it looks great,too! She recommends considering an upholstered bed for a look that is softer and more cozy; a simple platform bed for something more modern; or an ornate iron bed frame for something more antique and old world. To get the designer look you see in magazines and on websites for your bed,Henderson says you need to choose great bedding,and learn how to layer it. Make sure you have tons of textures and layers,she said. More than any other room,upholstery is important. In your bedroom,you want everything soft. You dont necessarily need a lot of patterns or colors. The key is to contrast textures like wools,linens,cashmeres and knits to make it feel inviting. Remember to keep everything in your color palette to avoid it looking messy or feeling busy. Here is her step-by-step guide to layering bedding like a pro: Start with sheets Make sure you have comfortable sheets that feel good against your skin. Sheets with some detailing on the end,such as lace or embroidery,add a nice decorative touch. You can choose a solid color or a pattern that complements your bedspread. Add a blanket The next layer is a soft blanket. Depending on the season and the climate in your area,you can go with a lighter cotton or fleece blanket,or a heavier wool one. Top it off A quilt,duvet or bedspread is the top layer of your bedding and has the most visual impact. It needs to pull together all the layers of your bed and complement the colors of your room. Accent each layer Fold the top layer back about a quarter of the way down the bed. Follow with the blanket and the sheet,leaving each layer visible. Add pillows and accessories Dont overdo it with layers and layers of pillows. Use larger,European style pillows and shams for a backdrop,your sleeping pillows in front of those,then an accent pillow or two. Add a textured throw or silky quilt folded at the end of the bed for a finishing touch.Put the Accent on StyleAccent pieces really finish off a room and give it a complete look. Henderson says she likes to use mirrors on the wall instead of big,bold art. Mirrors expand the space and fill the wall,but they dont add a lot of contrast or busyness. Other ideas for stylish accents include: A tray on the nightstand that holds a dish for jewelry,scented candle and lamp. Small throw rugs for either side of the bed. Rugs add color,texture and a luxurious feel to a room. A collection of small vases or frames in the same color with various shapes.
