It is his interpretation of the cars and track locations that comprise the official poster for Americas oldest sports car endurance race. It is copies of that poster that generally begin to pop up in late January and early February. For the past nine years, the Kentucky-based artist, working with raceway officials,has painstakingly recreated different track locations and competitors in a combination salute to past winners and a tease of things to come. Through Warricks brush,both enthusiasts and non-race fans have been able to glimpse a freeze frame view of competition from different vistas around the 3.7-mile course.

Tuesday nights meeting addressed what could possibly the last hitch in the long,drawn-out Center Avenue wall debacle. City Attorney Bob Swaine presented the council with a proposed contract between the city and Excavation Point (the engineering firm contracted to demolish Gingerlee Mitchelllindos retaining wall surrounding her property at 503 E. Center Ave.) The contract,which was reworked over the past couple weeks by Swaine after Mitchelllindo threatened to sue the company on Jan. 2, provides the company with hold harmless language as well as indemnification. Basically,the contract provides protection of Excavation Point if Mitchelllindo sues the company when the demolition occurs. Excavation Point wants the city to represent them if Mrs. Mitchelllindo sues, Swaine explained to the council during the meeting. Excavation Point owner Tal Rancaurt and his attorney, Jim LaPuzza,were present at Tuesdays meeting to ensure they were fully covered before they prepare to do the work they were hired to do. The men were sure to voice their concerns on what could be a potential mess if they were not very careful with the project. The only issue I haveis that you have limited the indemnification to a suit filed City stands behind Excavation Point, demolition set for wall Warrick again pens Sebring Race poster Courtesy photo Roger Warricks poster for this years Mobile 1 12 Hours of Sebring.

PB:Power Ball Lottery Center A s U.S. Marine Capt. Adam Brochetti led a New Years Eve patrol into one of the most dangerous areas of Afghanistan,he thought ofh is uncles last stand on a mountain in Vietnam. Moving up to Sangin on that evening,I thought about my uncle,his last moments,a nd his responsibilities, Capt. Brochetti told The Unknown Soldiers. Pfc. Frank Brochetti,20, was posthumously awardedt he Silver Star for his heroic actions on April 8,1972, atop the Nui Ba Den (BlackV irgin Mountain) in Vietnams Tay Ninh Province. Although wounded,he still directed fire on the a ttacking enemy forces until he succeeded in reaching the fighting position,Pfc.B rochettis award citation reads. M ore than 38 years later, the young U.S. Army soldiers gallantry inspired his nervous,courageous nephew as he led Marines to battleA fghanistans Helmand Province. This could be it,but les do it,Adam said to himself on Dec. 31,2010,not know-i ng if he and his fellow Marines would live to see 2 011. The grandson of a Marine who served in World War II, A dam had grown up hearing stories of his fallen uncles bravery. My whole life,it was a very big deal,Adam said. You walk into my grandparentshouse and theres a shrine with the flag,his picture and his Purple Heart. While he spent years looki ng at photos,studying maps and reading letters,it wasnt u ntil he graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy andd eployed to Afghanistan that he began to truly understand the sacrifices of people like his uncle. Once I became a Marine, i t hit me,knowing the kind of Marines Ive led,Adam said. Adam first deployed to Afghanistan in November2 008 with an infantry unit, and after getting a unique opportunity to attend U.S. Army Ranger School upon his return,went back to war in November 2010 with the 2nd Marine Reconnaissance B attalion. As a platoon commander,nothing was more important to Adam than keeping his Marines safe. Every decision I made,I m ade it thinking this young Marine,hell be somebodys u ncle someday,Adam said. Its a huge burden of responsibility. A s New Years Day 2011 dawned over southern A fghanistans treacherous terrain,Adam and his fellow Marines had survived yet a nother tense encounter with the enemy.When the entire platoon came home that summer,Adam knew he would have made his unclep roud. My biggest accomplishment to date was that I brought them all back,he said. The biggest compli-m ent was coming back and having my Marines thank m e. Now 29,married and raisi ng a family,Adam is focused on guiding Marines whove made extraordinary sacrifices since 9/11. As Company Commander forw ounded,ill and injured Marines at the Walter Reed National Military Center, Adam spends his days helping heroes whove enduredi mmense pain and suffering. These were young,strapping studs who commanded respect from the Marines around them,Adam said from Bethesda,Md. Now some are missing limbs and their entire lives have changed. Citing post-traumatic s tress and suicide as serious problems that continue to g rip the military community, Adam is calling on cities and towns across America toe mbrace wounded warriors and all veterans returning f rom difficult assignments overseas. (Local leaders understand who their vets are and welcome them backw ith open arms,the Marine said. Make an attempt to m eet their families and help them transition back to society. L ater this year,thanks to his grandparents and a C hallenge Grant from the Travis Manion Foundation, Adam will travel with rela-t ives to Vietnam to honor Pfc. Frank Brochetti. I want to pay respects to m y uncle and give (my grandparents) some closure b y walking around that hallowed ground,Adam said. As he stands atop the mountain where his uncle and many more Americanh eroes made the ultimate sacrifice,Capt. Adam Brochetti will give thanks for the valor of a previous generation,as well as his own. There brave,there c ourageous,and thell go to hell and back for you,he s aid. That inspired me not only to be a Marine and serve our country,but because when I look at my guys,I see my uncle.

Will Durst is a political come-d ian. E very conceivable type of education is listed from k indergartens to below college-level schools of supplem entary training in technology. T he statute includes correspondence schools in the definition,and states that private schools may be .. p arochial,religious,denominational,for-profit,or nonp rofit ... State private school requirements are briefer Persons opening a private elementary or secondary s chool in Florida are required to complete two steps:1) establish a private school; and 2) register the existence o f the private school,once established,with the (state Department of Education. Thats it folks. There is no more. O h,there are some general requirements,most about health,safety and transportation. For example,within f ive days of opening a school,a school owner must s ubmit fingerprints for state processing and a criminal background check. E ducational standards,on the other hand,are not a ddressed. Which is why it is so important for parents and a dults going back to school to do their homework. Just because a school is private does not mean it is superior to a public school. J ust because a school is private does not mean it does a good job of teaching. J ust because a school is non-profit does not mean it w ill cost less than one that is for-profit. Because rules in Florida are so lax,too many school owners are more con-artist than educator. For example,a nyone can own a school. There is no requirement that a school owner have an educational background or credentials. T here are questions to ask when looking for a s chool:Parents and adult students should check and make sure the school is accredited with a respected e ducational association. Talk to administrators and teachers; look up the schools standardized test scores, o r graduation rate and number of graduates placed in j obs. Does the school have the respect of the community. How long has it been operating? H ere are some signs of trouble:The school has no c ampus nor building with a long-term lease; no report of teacher credentials; no curriculum outline; no school c alendar. When touring a school there are things to look for: B eware a high ratio of student to teacher; a poorly m aintained facility; a lack of,or outdated,computer or training equipment; unanswered questions. M ost private schools provide a quality education; m any private schools an exceptional one. Unfortunately,there are a portion of schools that do n ot. Some are just scams. Some actually do more harm than good. W ithout true oversight from the state board of educat ion,there are no guarantees.

There were only about four small groups in the place at the time I had this experience that I have to speak about to my community as a whole and directly to the young man and woman who sat next to me and my gal pal directly behind the cash register. This couple,Id say were in their young 20s, as he proclaimed they were whiteand drove a white pickup truck. As we were ordering our meals,this young man started to make remarks that he clearly wanted those of us in the restaurant to hear,as they were loud and boisterous and were filled with words I would call racist and hatefilledin nature. Of course,I instantly ingrained both his and her face into my memory because as my long life dealing with racism has taught me,you keep your friends close and your enemies closer. But I regress a moment because I will say that I did not think this young man a racist yet,simply an ignorant person who has yet to know and understand fully the world as it is and not as its perceived through the prejudice mindset he had obviously been given in his young life. Because I know firsthand that the most dangerous racists of our world have intellect that far surpasses the every day person as this young man,as well as finance and devious intent. Thats why Im addressing this here in an open forum. I want my words to be seen, not only by this couple but by all who have this same mindset of perceived superiority of a race over another. Just because I did not say anything to you about your ignorance doesnt mean its correct,a shared opinion or belief,it is not. I have no problem persecuting you in your ignorance as I have the soul of an abolitionist. I ver-standthat the only way that you can feel strong is to make another be perceived as weak. But as I live in a world where we all have the liberty and right to speak our minds,regardless of what another thinks,I watched you practice that right as I might not agree with you,or your words but would fight,as myself and many within my life have,your right to speak them. I want you to know that what you perceived as a room full of white racepersons, were anything but. I am a mixture of whats known as the human race,my friend considers herself American Jewish,and your waitress, Native American Indian,and none of us consider ourselves of the whiterace as you do. We all considered ourselves of American heritage and race and were all offended and saddened by your comments,not for ourselves,but for you. And if you desire to know the facts,the Census has a site online that can give you the true facts on the raceof those whom use government assistance most. I think you will be surprised of the realities of this fact in our world today. As for the female partner who accompanied the young man,I want to give a special message to her,those who spew hate outwardly need reaction and your constant requests for him to stop speaking in that manner only added to his flame and showed your embarrassment. When haters can no longer get sated by their actions without,they start to hate within and you are within his circle and I have no doubt will be a victim of his hate at some point if you do not run, not walk,away from this relationship. I pray someone steps into this young mans life and sets him on a better path than I seen him on this night and that my words reach him and those around him that can make this change. Our freedoms,as we know them as Americans and a free people, depend on it. Gingerlee Mitchelllindo SebringSnowbirds can also be BigsEditor: I am a senior citizen and a snowbird.(Im sure that all residents of the area know what a snowbird is.) A few years ago I decided that Id like to do something special for a child,especially since Im many miles away from my children and grandson and have always loved children. My sister,who is a fulltime resident of Florida,and was a middle school counselor at the time,suggested that I could mentor a child through the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization. I was excited to make the connection,and appreciate that the organization has an extensive application process and background check to make sure their clients are safe. There are two methods of approach for young people one is the school-based program and the other is community-based. I started out visiting my Littleat the school,which is non-threatening to the child,and eventually began visiting her in her home. She was very shy at first,but warmed up to me and we developed a wonderful relationship. I was a bit concerned that I would be gone for several months in the spring and summer,but my Little accepted that and looked forward to my return the next school year. My husband and I just happened to be planning a long trip in our motor home when we left Florida,so I decided d keep in touch with my Little by sending postcards of our travels. To my surprise and delight,I learned that she saved every one of my postcards and made a scrapbook to keep them in one place. She showed me her scrapbook when I returned to Florida in the fall. I was told by her teachers that my Little improved in her schoolwork and participation in class as a result of my attention to her and help with her assignments. It is so gratifying to be able to help a child and I plan stay in touch with her for years,to follow her progress as she matures into a young woman. When you hear of troubled people in the community,you can't help but wonder if someone was there for them as they were growing up. Im sure there are many Little Brothers and Sisters who have gained confidence and felt love and acceptance by their connections with their Bigs. I know the organization needs more Big Brothers and Sisters,and I hope more will step up and volunteer people of any age and background who care about children.

In fact,after us,the Bahamas laws,which are pretty much the same as ours,made it legal to fly in this type of aircraft aroundt he island. The Expo provides ample o pportunity for the young pilots to gain unique and h ands-on experience. With thousands of pilots and aviators in attendance,the pilots are able to not only share their love of aviation butg ain from it as well. e try to show people, e specially young high school students like us,that i t doesnt take a super hero to do this (flys fun,it does take work but just about anyone can do it, Herrington said.

C M Y K favor and opposed said,is about land owner rights. On the one hand,people already in the neighborhoods ay they have a right to protect their quality of life. They were there first,they argue, and a club of this kind is not fair to them. Why isnt theg overnment protecting them, they ask. On the other hand,supporters of the club say this is the United States of America,a nd what right does the government have to tell people what to do with their property? There also are broader environmental issues beingr aised by concerned groups and individuals. C ritics are concerned about the traffic they say the club will generate on second-a ry neighborhood streets, which are the only ways to g et to the club. Critics worry the noise of revving engines,public address systems and amplified music will destroy thep eace of the area over a large distance and adversely affect l ocal livestock and wildlife. Light pollution is another issue,especially because thep roperty is in one of the few areas left with dark skies. R anchers near the site also worry about trash and trespassers. The AudubonS ociety fears bird populations and animal corridors will be disrupted and disp laced because of the disturbance. (Swamp Hammock) is 100 percent inappropriate for this sight,said Paula House, referring to its possible effects on wild life and peo-p le. For their part,supporters say they have done everything possible to minimize noise and bright lights. Jeff Kennedy,representing t he owners,told the board that county staff created a list of specific conditions thec lub would have to follow. For example,he said,all e vents are subject to the Highlands County noise control ordinance; exterior lighting features must be shielded and directed onto to propertya nd special lighting like high powered sky lighting u nits,laser lights and fireworks be directed within the propertys air space andl imited to special events. Pam Karlson,attorney for t he owners,told the board, Occasional vehicle events will be held in the center oft he property and the owner has made every effort to havea variety of uses. A list of those proposed uses included not just vehicle e vents or fishing and camping,but bigger events like renaissance fairs and bluegrass concerts. No other part of H ighlands County can do these events,Karlson added. s at the farthest most edge of the county. Street traffic caused the most concern. K ennedy said a traffic study was done based on the impact the Red Neck YachtC lub generated in Charlotte County. He said the study h ad tripled the number of vehicles of a peak day and time,and the results showed the level of service remained fine. C ritics of Swamp Hammock raised issues with t he study and its choice of a peak day and time. But board members said any such issuesw ere negated by tripling the hypothetical traffic load. Critics raised strong concerns about allowing the sale of beer on the premises. Theya lso had questions about a proposed 1,000-yard shooting range. The range,however,will be operated under the oversight of the NationalR ifle Association,and is separate from the overall club. Supporters said the unusually large range makes official competitions possible,a nd should draw people in from out of county. Chairman Lew Carter reminded the audience the board serves in an advisoryc apacity only.Any decision is to made by the county commission. He added thatt here were still more steps in the process. Some of this stuff you d eal with,it happens out in the country,Carter said, r eferring to ATV noise before the vote. My concern has always been the traffic. Ih ave to respect the experts (who collected the data and w rote the traffic report). Board member Rick Ingler said,My biggest issue is the noise. I live a couple of miles from the raceway. I knew anda ccepted (the noiseThese folks who live out there s houldnt have to do that. They were there first. by Mrs. Mitchelllindo. Now Im assuming that she is the sole property owner,L aPuzza asked the council. She was last I looked in the property records, Swaine replied. ell,d prefer that that ( contract) be amended. I dont want to be sued by another property owner besides Mrs. Mitchelllindo. If there are two propertyo wners,I dont want the other one suing us. So change that to current prop-e rty owner and were good,LaPuzza said. Council members quickl y talked over the issue, remembering the past hicku ps theve run into when the property deed was switched fromM itchelllindo to her husband then back to M itchelllindo. The title has changed hands rather frequently on that regard,Swaine said. If shes not the sole p roperty owner,my client is still at risk for litigation, L aPuzza said. Council member Andrew Fells made the motion toa ccept the contract with the amendments and changes. d be more comfortable with just saying the current property owner at the time o f the work,Fells added. Council members passed the motion unanimously to accept the contract between the city and ExcavationP oint. The city will provide legal support and representation in the event Mitchelllindo or another property owner sues thec ompany anytime following the start of the demolit ion project. A Civil Surv,Inc. Design Group representative was also present during Tuesdays meeting andr equested the same hold harmless and indemnification protection asE xcavation Point. Civil Surv did the initial predemolition constructionp lans. Jack Breed spoke to the c ouncil briefly during the meeting. Since our work,we h ave already been sued twice ... We do appreciate a ttorney Swaines statement of duplication of the contract you have before you,Breed said. We would like to have somef orm of language from the owners,whoever that be, f or the duration of our services. Swaine stated that Civil S urv will be added as an addendum to the contract b etween the two entities already in place. Council members a pproved all of the contract changes and identification language unanimously Tuesday evening.

C M Y K B y DAN HOEHNE firstname.lastname@example.orgLAKE PLACID Its all gravy at this point, in their c oachs mind, as the Lady Dragons posted a late comeb ack and overtime clincher T uesday night to reach the District 10-2ATournament title game. ere such a young team that I wasnt expecting too much this year head coach John Merlo said afterward. I mean, weve got very good players, but with our youth, I thought this would be more of a learning season to build on for the next few years. Well the learning curve has been accelerated as Lake Placid put up a winning record on the season and got them the second seed in the tournament bracket. And Tuesdays match with DeSoto served as somewhat a microcosm of what the season has been like and avenged an earlier loss to the Bulldogs. e won our first match against them and were up 2-0 with 10 minutes to go the last time we played them, Merlo said. We had the lead and relaxed, then they scored three goals in a matter of minutes. The girls seem to play better when theyre down, which is a sign of their youth, he continued. We really came on at the end of that match, but just couldnt get one to go in. They got one in very early this time around as cocaptain Stephanie Bennett booted in a deflection of a Michelle Hunter shot just 1:22 into Tuesdays match. But DeSoto kept the pressure on, sending a few deep releases that had freshman keeper Tamija Douglas racing out time and again to make diving covers just ahead of a charging Bulldog. Those continued charges would soon pay off, however, as DeSoto provided a reminder of their last match with two goals within a three-minute span to tie and then take the lead. The margin remained through halftime and throughout much of the second half, with both sides battling tooth-and-nail. Douglas had to come out of the game momentarily at one point after one of her diving efforts corralled not only the ball, but an inprogress kick as well. One of the most amazing times of the year for bass fishermen is the pre-spawn period. Contrary to what many people believe, the spawning process is not a quick, simple event. The ritual involves three separate periods: prespawn, spawn and postspawn. Surprisingly, the prespawn period actually begins in the late fall months. That is when the female b ass initiates egg development. Then it takes up to four months for the roe mass to fully develop. If youve caught females during this period and cleaned them for the table, you may have noticed a yellow mass. That is simply their eggs in gestation. Typically in our area, r eproductive instincts kick in as early as December, and are generally in full swing by February and March. Bass do not initiate their spawning activities at the same time on different lakes, or on large bodies of water. On Lake Okeechobee, for e xample, bass may be spawning in January in one section of the lake while others wait until March or April in a completely different area. Its not uncommon for half the bass population in any given lake to be in the pre-spawn mode while the other half are already laying eggs. Weather will have a dramatic impact on the spawn, often causing fish that have begun the ritual to move of f into deeper water until the front passes. T his can take hours and even days, but eventually the w eather will clear and they will return. T he actual spawning movements to the shallows a re dictated by the length of the day and amount of sunlight, called photoperiod, and the water temperature. Also involved in that sequence is the angle of the sun and the sequence of the moon cycles. In Highlands County, our lake temperatures will typically fall into the low 60s, or even the mid-to-high 50s in December and January. At this temperature, most of the bass are in a prespawn phase. When the temperature hits the mid 60s to low 70s, the majority of the females will be hovering over a bed. Its interesting to note that some bass have actually been found to be on beds in water temperatures as low as SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, January 18, 2013 Page 3B Fishin Around Don Norton Pre-Spawn to Spawn Courtesy photo The spawning season for bass in and around Highlands County is in full swing.

By TAYLOR TUBBS News-Sun correspondent SEBRING The Sebring girls soccer season drew to a close on Tuesday night in the District 133A Tournament after a hardfought match against the Winter Haven Blue Devils. The Streaks battled to narrow 2-1 loss at Winter Haven, a dramatic improvement over 6-2 and 3-0 losses to the top seed during the regular season. The Streaks were fresh off of a big win on Monday night in their district opener against Auburndale, where they walked away with a thrilling, 2-1 victory in overtime Unfortunately the tables turned for them on Tuesday night. The Streaks, however, didnt go down without a fight. It was a close game, said junior Mariana Becker. We were tied 1-1 until they scored in the last few minutes, unfortunately Sebrings goal was scored by powerhouse sophomore Haylee Peters, who has scored a number of goals for the Streaks throughout the Lady Streaks give top seed a scare Winter Haven2Sebring1 See STREAKS, Page 4B News-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE Ezell Gammage and the Blue Streaks came up j ust short Tuesday at Winter Haven.

B ut coming to play is just the way the Blue Streaks do things and that they did Tuesday in nearly pulling off a shocker at Winter Haven. Undefeated in district play and having won two in a row coming in, the Blue Devils found themselves in a battle from the get-go. Baskets were at a premium as both defenses locked down, and Sebring fought to a 12-12 tiea fter one period of play. W inter Haven was able to squeak out to a one-point advantage at the half, 26-25, but the Blue Streak defense really dug in deep in the third, holding the Devils to just eight Blue Devils hold off stubborn Streaks Winter Haven48Sebring46 See SEBRING, Page 3B Special to the News-SunLAKE PLACID Paul Stephenson is a seventh generation blueberry farmer from South Haven, MI.

C M Y K fifty degrees, while others have spawned in 75-degree water. Ive been watching the water temperatures in a numb er of lakes and Ive found m ost to be much warmer this year than other years, with temperatures in the mid to upper 60s since December. With this recent summerlike weather, some of our lakes are already at 70+ degrees. Most people believe the moon phases to be of greater importance than water temperatures and as a result, the full moon of January often signals the start of the spawn for many fishermen. However, biologists studying bass behavior claim the surface temperature of the water is probably more i mportant. Lakes typically have warm pockets of water that may vary four or five degrees over 300 yards. Such areas are the first to see actual spawning activity. Where the bass decide to s pawn depends on the characteristics of the specific waters. Typically water in the upper end of the lake is likely to be warmer than water on the lower end. With the winter sun positioned lower in the southern sky than at any other time of the year, the shoreline on the north side of the lake should heat up quicker. This area also receives more sunlight and less wind. Largemouth bass will generally build their nests, or beds in shallow, warmer water on or around vegetation on a hard or sandy bottom. Males normally select the site, although in some cases they have been known to select a mate first and together, cruise the shallows to find a suitable site. Beds are usually in 2 to 6 feet of water to take advantage of the ample sunshine required to incubate the e ggs. Spawning flats one year will generally attract spawne rs the following year. The individual nests are usually spaced several yards apart so that each bass has its own domain. Once the male selects the nesting site, he will begin a sweeping motion with his tail to sweep away anyd ebris and clean the site crea ting a bed. The dimensions of the n est are at least 2 feet in diameter by 6 inches deep. When the nest is prepared, the male will swim out to deeper water seeking an eligible female to lead back tot he nest. The male will often be seen battering and butting t he female to get her to the right bed. The pair then will begin to circle the bed and dusting any remaining debris out of the selected area. The male will continue his physical contact by nipping and pushing at her side and belly until the female is ready. They move to their positions over the bed, normally during low-light conditions and the female will begin releasing her eggs. The eggs sink slowly into the nest, and the male ejects milt over the eggs and gently moves his tail back and forth to assure that all the eggs are fertilized. The size of the female usually determines the number of eggs that she is capable of depositing. Some suggest a bass lays 5,000 eggs per pound of body weight. Afour or five pound bass is considered the most successful spawner, in terms of egg viability. She may drop 4,000 to 6,000 eggs every two weeks over a six week period, and she may drop eggs in one or more nests. When through, the physically debilitated female has then laid from 5,000 to 20,000 eggs in the males n est. S he may also withhold eggs instinctively during unstable weather for another attempt days later. Once her role is completed and the male has fertilized all the eggs, the female will usually desert the nest. Sometimes, the female will hang around for a day or so to help guard the nest, but by then the male will normally drive her away. He quickly comes back to the nest to stand vigil while fanning the eggs. Fanning the eggs oxygenates them and helps remove gases that the egg mass may produce while m aturing. During this time the male is highly aggressive, warding off invaders and will often strike any lure that he feels is a threat to the eggs. The female by now has moved away from the spawning area, often just out of reach of the shallows, and at times, into the deepest water in the area. She will remain there for some time in the post-spawn mode while she recuperates from the spawning ritual. I n three to nine days the e ggs will hatch and the swarm of fry will hover over the nest while absorbing their life-sustaining yolk sac. During this time they are vulnerable to attack from bluegills and other panfish who often use wolf pack tactics to draw the male away from the nest while others swarm in and eat the eggs or fry. Sudden temperature drops can also delay hatching and even kill the entire brood. The yolk sac is gone within a week and at that time a tiny tail develops, allowing the newborns to swim. Its at this time the male, having gone weeks without food will often devour as many as a third of them, stopping only when they have scattered. This is often seen as Mother Natures way of alerting the young to the predatory relationship they will be facing throughout their lives. Survivors, now about an inch long, move even shallower, seeking protection from predators in protected shorelines and begin feeding on plankton. When the spawn is complete, there may be 50,000 to 100,000 tiny bass in any given lake. No lake could support such a population, so predation and other factors reduce the count over the following four months to around 200 fingerling-sized bass per acre. It is believed that less than 1 percent of the eggs actually develop into catchable sized bass on any given lake.

Can chemo do that? B.G.,San Diego,Calif. Answer: Scientists are still trying understand the phenomenon your partner describes,which they named chemo brain.It happens toa ffect seniors,and those with chronic infections and illn esses. Even with modern technology,such as MRIs,thee xact cause of chemo brain has evaded scientists. You s ee,even with an MRI scan, only minor differences in the brain are seen before and after chemotherapy,and nothing definitively points tot he cause of chemo brain making it hard to treat. A lright,pop quiz time:Do you know that your brain needs glucose in order tow ork,grow,and think? Its true. Your noggin uses more t han 20 percent of the fuel derived from the food you eat. Fuel is equal to glucosei n this case. Knowing this tidbit,scientists recently made a discovery that will h elp chemo brain sufferers. Researchers at the Virginia U niversity School of Medicine tried a different approach. Instead of looking at still shots of the brain with an MRI (before and after chemo),they watched how the brain uses glucosed erived from the meals their patients ate. They used a s pecialized scanning device (PET scanalong with CT scans and discovered thatc ertain parts of your brain light up brightly when gluc ose is utilized. These brighter areas show the regions of the brain that are actively eatingglucose.Itsa good thing,its you want b ecause it means that your brain is working properly. G lucose feeds the brain. Interestingly,the brains of chemotherapy-treatedp atients still lit up,but they were much duller in brightn ess,indicating less activity. Incredibly,the duller areas are the regions of the brainr esponsible for planning and decision-making,and thats exactly what chemo brain s ufferers complain about. The researchers are not e xactly sure why this happens,it could be related to excessive cytokine production or nerve unraveling (demyelinationut nevertheless,it validates so many of you who have asked me to help you with memoryl oss,poor concentration, inability to solve problems, and general cognitive decline after receiving chemotherapy. S o what can you do to help your partner with chemo brain? First,point out to her that it may get better after completion of the chemo. Next,increase color-f ul fruits and vegetables in the diet,keeping it free of a nything refined or processed. Exercising 30 minutes a d ay can improve chemo brain by shuttling more gluc ose to the brain. There are supplements at health food stores,or online that nourish the brain,providing more glucose and improved bloodf low.Ask your oncologist if some of the following would b e beneficial for you:vinpocetine,ginkgo biloba, bacopa,phosphatidylserine,c oconut oil and DHA. In fact,any of you with memor y loss should ask your doctor about these supplements. Supplements for chemo brain and memory loss HE ALTHSN APSHOTS Get the paper delivered to you!

C M Y K By BOB GARVER Film criticThe decision to grant a wide release to KathrynB igelos Zero Dark Thirtywas made before the Academy Award nominations were announced. As expected,the film managedt o be one of nine to snag a Best Picture nomination. It was too little too late,however,as any hopes the film might have had at winningB est Picture were in fact dashed a few moments earlier with the announcement oft he nominees for Best Director. Bigelow failed to secure herself a nomination,a nd The Academy cant be very much in love with a f ilm if they dont see fit to honor the individual appointed as its leader. A nd yet,all hope is not lost and there is still a very g ood reason to see the film. The production was shrouded in secrecy,and the extent of the actorsroles was not clear until recently. I wasa ctually expecting this to be one of those ensemble p ieces with so many storylines going on at once that its impossible to label any-o ne as a main character. It turns out that there is most d efinitely a main character. Her name is Maya,the film portrays her as the CIA offic er primarily responsible for taking down Osama Bin Laden,and I do believe that the performance will earn Jessica Chastain theA cademy Award for Best Actress. Like many heralded protagonists,Maya is the epitome of determination. Earlyi n the film she discovers a potential lead in the hunt for B in Laden and she spends nearly ten years following it.T here are plenty of obstacles to discourage her: theres the inevitable bureaucracy and red tape, her sources dont want toc ooperate,her superiors and colleagues arent supportive, a key player is reported dead,information obtainedf rom torture is dismissed, and the terrorists want to kill her. Naturally she perseveres,often in the form of brazen confrontations with male superiors. In one scene she chews out a colleague sot horoughly that when she was done,I felt compelled t o do an impression of Chastains inner monologue. I stuck out my hand and said,Oscar,please. The film takes a break from Maya in the last act w hile we follow SEAL Team Six as they raid Bin L adens compound. Under normal circumstances Id complain about the generalm urkiness of the scene; how its hard to see,hard to hear, a nd hard to follow. But Im sure these elements were just as difficult for the realS EAL Team Six,and it is clearly the goal of the film to be as realistic as possible i n this regard. Comprehensible or not, t here is no shortage of tension in these scenes. Of course you worry about the well-being of the heroes, and its hard not to feel anx-i ety over the fates of the women and children in the compound. The most suspense,however,comes from considering the stakes of the mission. These soldiers have the opportunity to take outO sama Bin Laden,talk about the chance of a lifet ime. But how crushed would they be if it turns out that hes not there,or worse, if he somehow manages to away? Zero Dark Thirtyis u ndeniably an intelligent (as in smart) film,and it cont ains a lot of intelligence (as in military and political information). The latter isp roblematic at times,as I found it difficult to keep up w ith the all the details of the investigation. Maybe Im not intelligent enough.B igelow and writer Mark Boal painstakingly researched the subject matt er,going so far as to obtain and incorporate into the s tory classified information that many believe shouldnt have been available to them. The result is a complex film that may not have wowedt he Academy the way it was supposed to,but is impressive enough to make you wonder if it should have. Zero Dark Thirtyis rated R for strong violence including brutal disturbingi mages,and for language. Its running time is 157 minu tes. Contact Bob Garver at firstname.lastname@example.org By CHRISTY LEMIRE A P Movie WriterLOS ANGELES A few weeks ago,Zero Dark Thirtyseemed well on its way to capturing the Academy Award for best picture. It was winning early critic awards and gaining the kind of momentum a movie needs to win Hollywoods biggest prize. Much was made about the authenticity of the film by director Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal, who used insider access to tell the sweeping,meticulously detailed story of the decade-long search for Osama bin Laden. Then last week,Zero Dark Thirtywon five Academy Award nominations,including for best picture,and this past weekend, it was No. 1 at the domestic box office with a gross of nearly $25 million. Yet what may be the films biggest challenge in the pursuit of Oscar glory is playing out from Hollywood to Washington as debate mounts over the films accuracy in its depiction of torture and whether the movie itself endorses the use of torture. Lawmakers are also investigating whether the CIA gave Bigelow and Boal false information as to whether enhanced interrogation tactics led directly to the 2011 capture and killing of the al-Qaida leader in Pakistan. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences failed to nominate Bigelow for director,and on Sunday night,Zero Dark Thirty received only one Golden Globe Award from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for best actress Jessica Chastains portrayal of a driven CIA operative. Could congressional scrutiny over such an emotionally charged issue as torture be affecting Zero Dark Thirtyawards momentum? Will the bicoastal backlash ultimately prevent the film from winning the best picture award when the Oscars are presented on Feb. 24? Could the dispute also have a bearing on other top honors to be given in the weeks ahead by producers, writers and directors guilds? Among those raising questions about the film are Sens. Dianne Feinstein,DCalif.,and John McCain,RAriz.,who wrote a letter to the CIAs acting director, Michael Morell,asking him to share documents showing what the filmmakers were told. The fact that the subject of torture is so fresh and relevant in this country also complicates matters for the film. At least one member of the motion picture academy, David Clennon,has said he will not vote for Zero Dark Thirtyin any category because of the way it depicts torture. Fighting back after days of silence,Bigelow responded to the criticism in an article for the Los Angeles Times on Wednesday,in which she said torture was an undeniable part of the hunt for bin Laden. Experts disagree sharply on the facts and particulars of the intelligence hunt,and doubtlessly that debate will continue,Bigelow wrote. As for what I personally believe,which has been the subject of inquiries,accusations and speculation,I think Osama bin Laden was found due to ingenious detective work,she continued. Torture was,however, as we all know,employed in the early years of the hunt. That doesnt mean it was the key to finding bin Laden. It means it is a part of the story we couldnt ignore. Amy Pascal,the co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment,which distributed the film,has issued her own lengthy statement in support of the film,saying it does not advocate torture and would have been inaccurate without its inclusion. This film should be judged free of partisanship. To punish an artists right of expression is abhorrent,she said. But Oscar historian Tom ONeil thinks punishment is exactly whats happening here. Kathryn Bigelow paid a price for giving torture sucha starring role in this movie,said ONeil. Previous films based on real-life stories like The Hurricaneand Mississippi Burning,which looked like serious awards contenders when they came out,took hits as disparities arose between whats on screen and whats the truth,ONeil noted. The characters were portrayed heroically,then we find out they werent that wonderful,he said. Dear Abby:M y elderly uncle and aunt have a son-in-l aw who to put it mildly spins tall tales. Tomhas been everywhere,done everything andi nsists on telling anyone who will listen all about it. H e speaks many languages fluently (until someone addresses him in one oft hem) and has had countless adventures in various count ries,although he cant locate them on a map. My uncle and aunt have bought two cars for their financially unstable daughtera nd this phony. Both times, Tom insisted on maintaining t hem himself (another of his legendary skills). Afterward, both cars required majorr epairs and eventually had to be scrapped. A fter Toms stint as a highly decorated Navy SEAL,he morphed into ag enius at creating computer software,when he wasnt touring with a famous blueg rass band the name of which he cant remember. I am concerned that my uncle and aunt are so awed by this man that they might one day allow him to manage their finances (there isn o topic Tom is not an expert on) or let him fix the brakes on their vehicle.

The Q ueen of England Dear Royal Highness: Yes,if you do it privately, and say you are speaking up only because you are worried about their welfare. Then explain why you think Toms stories dont hold water and point out that if he should volunteer any finan-c ial advice to them they should first run it past an unbiased non-family member such as their banker,lawyer, CPA or pastor before makinga ny investments.

C M Y K LIVING 10BNews-Sun Wednesday, January 18, 2013NANCY STONE/CHICAGO TRIBUNE/MCTA record 1.8 million people flocked to the National Mall to watch President Barack Obamas first inauguration in 2009. BYRO BERTS. BO YDMcClatchy Newspapers Inaugurals are a mixture of pomp, festival and gravity,the American equivalent of a coronation. Their rituals are laden w ith symbols o f national purpose,continuity and u nity. For 220 years,they have marked the peaceful transfer of power, a feat few other countries have achieved. Presidents have tinkered with the ceremony to reflect their personal style and the state of the nation. Thereve been top hats and bare heads,cheers and boos along parade routes,unruly mobs in the White House,poets and preachers,brilliant sunshine and bitter cold,glamorous balls and tragic circumstances. A lmost always the day has featured a solemn swearing-in,an inaugural a ddress,one or more parades,plus parties,receptions and fancy balls fari nto the night. The heart of the affair is the inaugural oath,first recited by George Washington on the balcony of NewY ork Citys Federal Hall,the original seat of government,on April 30,1789. The 35-word oath is prescribed in the Constitution,but Washington added the phrase So help me God and placed his left hand on a Bible hastily borrowed from a Masonic Lodge on Wall Street. Most later presi dents have followed the founding fathers precedent. Washingtons successor,John Adams,took the oath in Philadelphias Independence Hall. Thomas Jefferson d id it in the new Senate chamber in the District of Columbia in 1801. James Monroe moved the ceremony outside to the east front of the Capitol in 1817. It remained there until 1981,when Ronald Reagan switched it to the Capitols west front as a giant stage prop for his inauguration. Sub-zero temperatures drove R eagan inside the Capitol building in 1985 for his second oath-taking and forced the cancellation of his parade, disappointing 12,000 marchers,66 floats and 57 bands. Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson showed their common touch by eschewing carriages and walking up to Capitol Hill to be sworn in. Jimmy Carter delighted the crowd and horrified the Secret Service by leaving his armored limousine after the swearing-in,and strolling down Pennsylvania Avenue with his wife and children to the White House. Both Bushes,the Clintons and the Obamas walked part of the way at their inaugurals as well. Until Benjamin Harrisons 1889 inauguration,the parades usually moved up the hill to the Capitol. Since then,theve flowed down the hill past the White House reviewing stand. Some grander parades lasted well into darkness. After his 1829 parade,Andrew Jackson opened the White House to thousands of his hungry and thirsty followers,who tracked in mud,broke windows and wrecked furniture. After Lincolns second inaugural in 1865, unruly guests stole silver and d raperies. T hereve been awkward moments b etween incoming and outgoing presidents. Adams boycotted Jeffersonsi nauguration in 1801. Ulysses Grant refused to ride in the same carriage as Andrew Johnson in 1869. Herbert Hoover and Franklin D. Roosevelt drove to the Capitol in chilly silence in 1933. Not all inaugurals have been joyous occasions. Andrew Johnson took the oath in his boardinghouse the day after Lincolns assassination in April 1865. In 1901,Theodore Roosevelt was sworn in in Buffalo,N.Y.,where W illiam McKinley had died earlier that day. A grim-faced Lyndon Johnson was sworn in aboard Air Force One on the day John F. Kennedy was shot in Dallas. Gerald Ford took the oath in the East Room of the White House after Richard Nixon resigned in 1974. Ever since Washington,most pres idents have launched their term with a formal address,usually calling for national reconciliation and setting ou t their vision for the future. Washington and Adams gave their inaugural speeches in person. J efferson and a century of his succes sors sent theirs to Congress in writing. W ilson renewed the personal address in 1913. Some inaugural addresses have etched lines in the national memory:Thomas Jefferson:e are all Republicans,we are all Federalists.F ranklin Roosevelt:... the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.John Kennedy:Ask not what your country can do for you ask what you can do for your country.Gerald Ford Our long national nightmare is over. At Kennedys snow-swept inaugu ral in 1961,the glare of the sun and a stiff breeze kept Robert Frost from reading a poem he had written for the occasion. Vice President Lyndon Johnson tried to shade the lectern with his top hat,but the 86-year-old poet protested I cant see in this light. Instead,he recited from memory one of his earlier poems,The Gift Outright. William Henry Harrisons 1841 address an hour and 40 minutesl ong,delivered without hat or coat on a cold,damp day turned tragic. T he 68-year-old Harrison developed pneumonia and died a month later. His vice president,John Tyler,was sworn in at his hotel and never gave an inaugural address. Barack Obamas first inauguration in 2009 drew a record 1.8 million people to the National Mall to witness the swearing-in of the countrys first black president. To read the inaugural addresses of former presidents:www. inaugural.senate.gov/swearing-in/ addresses Abraham LincolnMarch 4, 1865With malice t oward none, with charity for all,with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right,let us strive on to finish the work we are in,to bind up the nation's wounds ...Franklin D.RooseveltMarch 4, 1933So,first of all, l et me assert my firm belief that the only thing we have to fear is fear itself nameless,unreasoning,unjustified terror which paralyzes needed efforts to convert retreat into advance.John F.KennedyJan.20, 1961And so, m y fellow Americans:Ask not what your country can do for you ask what you can do for your country.Ronald ReaganJan.20, 1981We have every r ight to dream heroic dreams.
