C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK The search was on for the next Avon Park head football coach. Shortly after the Winter Break, first-year front man Lee Brown had turned in his resignation and the applications came pouring in. L ooking at it pragmatically, the administration first began looking in-house and had planned to expand i t out from there as time went on. B ut a trip to Daytona B each kind of turned the tide and kept more focus on that in-house ideal. I was up at the Hall of Fame induction for coach Franza, Avon Park principal Tealy Willams said. And I found it remarkable that players of his from as much as 50 years ago came for it. ith the other coaches being inducted, I realized the common thread for all of them, he added, leading to his revelation. That they had all been at their schools for 20, 25 or 30 years. They were part of those communities, like coach Franza, and it made me think of the other coaches Ive known or worked with in my years here, like Ronnie Jackson and Hoppy Rewis, and that was a pivotal moment for me. That actualization lead to Wednesdays official announcement that Wade Jackson will now be the head of Avon Park football. s a win-win for the Jackson family and for Avon Park, Williams said. They already have such a tremendous reach in the community, with Wade and his wife Melanie, who is equally devoted to the kids in the area. We wanted someone who wouldnt mind being a coach here for the next 25 years and Wade brings that sort of commitment. The excitement was evident in Jackson, who saw his patience pay off. This is something Ive wanted for a long time, he said Wednesday. I started here in and applied the last two times there was an opening, but those just werent the time for me. It was Gods will this time around and I cant wait to get started. Having been at the school this long and having bore witness to the tough times of the program in recent years, Jackson knows the task at hand. e have to get the kids confidence back to where it needs to be, he said. I want to preach to these kids to have the attitude to be the best they can be. Its a roller coaster, just as life is, and even with as strong a history as Avon Park football has, weve had some tough times. But we have to survive these valleys and stay positive. And toward that end, as far as production on the field and his coaching philosophy, Jackson has his ideals. Im a stickler for blockI had the opportunity to fish Lake Istokpoga last weekend on Saturday as well as Sunday and the fishing couldnt have been better. The weather both days was less than perfect, with cooler air temperatures, spotty rain showers and strong winds. Anyone anxious to catch their limit and maybe even hook into that wallhanger should be fishing this incredible lake right now. So Saturday morning I stopped by the Lorida Bait and Tackle to get a few tips from John Wood, and he showed me a couple of baits that were really hot. One combination that he put together himself, a swim bait with a weighted hook and Colorado blade was an easy sale as I selected both the dark and lighter versions. The winds were exceptionally strong on Saturday, but knowing the bass will typically start their spawning activities on the north or western sections of the lake, I crossed the lake from the Cowhouse Rd boat ramp and immediately got into some nice fish. Casting the swim bait with the wind was like shooting a cannon. My casts were long and deliberate and the strikes were amazing. Within the first 30 minutes Id had six strikes and landed three bass. But the blowing winds were just too much for my electric motor and I finally decided to find some calmer waters. With a Northeast wind, the eastern shoreline of Lake Istokpoga offered a welcome respite and although I wasnt real confident I could find any fish there, it was a pleasant experience not having to fight the wind. The bulrushes and reeds along the northeastern section of the lake are numerous and most are in 2-3 feet of water. I moved in close to flip the outside edges and within minutes hooked into one of the biggest bass Ive ever seen. For those of you who do a lot of flipping, you know that occasionally, as the boat is moving forward, youll see the reeds move out of the corner of your eye. Well, I noticed the reeds separating just ahead of the boat and I carefully flipped my blue-black Yum Dinger into the spot. Within seconds the reeds moved again and as I set the hook, a bulldozer of a bass exploded as she ripped the line off my baitcasting reel. Often, when flipping a plastic worm or jig, the bass will pick it up and move out towards open water, but this bass headed straight back into the heaviest concentration of reeds, traveling at a tremendous speed, she broke water and tail-walked a good three feet before snapping my 25 lb test Trilene Big Game line. I couldnt believe it! The entire event couldnt have taken three seconds, but it seemed to be in slow motion. I sat down in the boat and took a deep breath. Eventually I reminded myself win, lose or draw, thats what bass fishings all about. I finished the day with 11 bass, all between 2 1/2 pounds and 5 pounds. Many were caught on the swim bait, but for the record,I probably missed or lost as many bass as I caught. Fishing the swim bait, you need to give the bass an extra few seconds after the strike to get the whole bait in their mouth before you set the hook. I figured that out after I missed a fair number of strikes setting the hook too quickly. Sunday the winds were lighter as I started fishing a little earlier in the day, around 10 a.m. Still thinking about the big one that got away, I decided to start near where Id lost the fish on Saturday. I had marked the spot on my GPS, so I pulled in about 200 yards north of the area and started flippin. On my third flip, a big fish picked up my bait and headed back into the reeds. I wasnt expecting action SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, January 25, 2013 Page 3B N ews-Sun file photo by DAN HOEHNE Brian Dixon tallied Sebrings lone goal Tuesday night, but it would be all that was needed in the district tournament w in. By TAYLOR TUBBS News-Sun correspondentSEBRING Aguaranteed t rip to regionals is enough to make any team celebrate a nd the Sebring boys soccer team has a lot to be happy a bout coming out of their game on Tuesday night. In their first match of the District 13-3A Tournament at Lake Wales, the Streaks won in a 1-0 victory over the Winter Haven Blue Devils. It was a really hard game, said sophomore Wesley Koning. At the end it was very nerve wracking because they were getting really close to our goal. Luckily the Streaks defense was able to hold off the oncoming Devils. Junior Brian Dixon, who has scored a number of goals for Sebring throughout the season, scored the lone goal of the night. It was the only goal that was needed, as it turned out, to give the Streaks a win and a chance to advance their s eason into regional competition. T he two district teams that reach the tournament title m atch are both locked into the regional quarterfinals. N early all season Sebring has been the number two seed in districts, behind the troublesome and always powerful Auburndale Bloodhounds. The Streaks have played the team twice prior, and come up just short of the win both times. Tonight, their chance for redemption is given, as Sebring takes on Auburndale in the district finals. Thats going to be a real tough game, said Koning. But win or lose, we still get to go to regionals. The only difference being, a loss means a road game against the District 14 champion, while a win brings a match to Firemens Field against the District 14 runner up.

The visiting Red Devils kicked off the first quarter with a two pointer on the board, but Sebrings Terrell Williams fought back with a layup putting Sebring in the game. Josh Austin shot two-offour penalty shots in the first quarter, followed by Gary DeMarest with a clean layup, leaving the final tally at the end of the first at 13-8 Kathleen. Luke Ancrum started out the beginning of the second scoring two from the foul line, and he didnt stop there. W hen Decaris Jones got a rebound, he then dished it to A ncrum who finished it up with another two points for Sebring. Ezell Gammage and Quantrae Rouse followed with a pair of lay-ups to keep the Streaks within shouting distance. Josh Austin would soon get a rebound off of Kathleen, and ran the ball down the court for a solid layup, also drawing a foul and completing a three-point p lay. To finish up the first half, Connor Cook shot a three pointer, giving hope to the team, and leaving them at a close 29-21 deficit. Williams kicked off the third quarter with a foul shot, and Jones added on top of that with a three pointer. Ancrum threw in a 10foot jumper, keeping the points rising. Ancrum and DeMarest then added two foul shots, back-to-back. A ustin ended the third Red Devils subdue Blue Streaks Avon Park tabs Wade Jackson See STREAK, Page 3B See JACKSON, Page 3B

C M Y K with a jumper, and a layup, scoring the final four points, but the Streaks were still looking up at a 45-34 score at the end of the third. Over the final eight minutes, Rouse made good on four foul shots, but Kathleen fought right back with a three pointer. Brion Jones kept it going with a lay-up, and Decaris Jones followed with another lay-up. The former Jones also shot two-of-two from the foul line, but the Devils continued to up the ante and won it going away. e had some major turnovers that really hurt us tonight, explained head coach Princeton Harris. The momentum was really in our favor until then. Defensively we need to put up stops. We need to be more physical with the teams, we practice that way and its rough, Harris added. We shot 34 percent tonight, and you cant win against a team like that with those percentages. We missed 19 free throws tonight as well, it was mind boggling. Now 4-12 overall on the season, 2-4 in district play, the Blue Streaks hosted topseed Winter Haven Thursday to complete the district schedule. this quick and I stumbled for a moment, setting my coffee down and lowering my rod tip to strike back. It felt like a good hook set but the fish was already deep into the reeds and circling around a dozen bulrushes. I put the electric motor on high and proceeded to knock down the reeds as I got closer to where the big bass was tangled up. About five feet away, I could see the huge bass lying on her side, but I was shocked to see two blueblack Yum Dingers hanging from her massive jaw. I couldnt believe it could this actually be the bass I had hooked and lost yesterday? My mind was racing as I raised the power on the electric motor determined to get to this big female before she got her second wind. At the sound of my electric motor thrashing the water and reeds, the big bass madea frantic jump and I could almost hear the line snap. And she was gone again. Every bass fisherman experiences the feelings associated with losing a big bass. But to lose what appeared to be the same bass two days in a row was a crushing blow. It was time to re-think my selection of fishing lines. Like many bass fishermen, I used to use Power Pro or one of the other braided lines for flipping, but, being old school, I always preferred the Trilene Big Game line for its flex and durability. I never worried too much about breaking off but twice in two days, with what appeared to be the same fish, maybe it was time to switch back. After a few minutes of thinking about what I should have done, I chalked it up to just another exciting battle and got back to fishing. Moving out to a little deeper area I went back to casting the swim bait and was rewarded on my first cast with a nice four pounder. Afew casts later a 3 and a fat 2 1/2 pounder found the bait irresistible and I put the loss of the big bass out of my mind. Coming up on some lily pads, I changed tactics and went to a silver phenom Bass Assassin, weaving the bait near the surface and watching intently as it mimicked a wounded bait fish. I wasnt sure if the bass would hit a surface bait but I was soon convinced when a nice 4 pounder blew up on it in the middle of the pads. Catching a couple more, I decided to go back to flipping the reeds in the hope of hooking up with another big fish. Moving along 300 yards of reed-filled shoreline withouta hit, I was just about ready to go back to the Bass Assassin or the Swim Bait when I felt a solid tap. I set up and a big bass came right up to the surface and under my boat. This one wasnt going to get away, I thought, as I worked the bass over to the portside of the boat and reached down and grabbed her lower lip. She was a beauty, weighing in at 9.12 pounds and full of eggs. She wasnt as big as the one Id lost (they never are but she put the icing on the cake for me as I finished up my day on Lake Istokpoga. I landed 17 bass in two d ays, the biggest one over 9 pounds and most in the 3-5p ound range, on three different baits, in three different areas of the lake. Agreat couple of days that I hope to repeat over the next couple of months. Later, I told a couple of my buddies about losing the same bass two days in a row, and I noticed some raised eyebrows. But if youre fishing Lake Istokpoga and you catch a monster bass with two blue black Yum Dingers hanging from her jaws ...

Continued from 1B Fish rollin ova on Istokpoga Continued from 1B ing and tackling, he said. I like to be sound on special teams, have an aggressive, attacking defense and I know we need to run the ball and control the clock on offense, but well also need to be able to pass some. Sounds pretty basic, but often times it needs to be, as those are the foundations upon which a program is built. And it also leaves muchneeded leeway. Im a big Don Shula fan, Jackson said of the Hall of Fame NFLcoach. He had his system, but what made him so successful was his ability to change with the times and with his personnel. His passion evident, Jackson will look for that with his coaching staff. I want to have guys who love the program, he said. Guys who played here and have the passion to make it better This home-grown approach may take some time, as righting the direction of a program often does. But having the people in place who have the passion and connection to the program and community seems like the right first step on that journey. And in Jackson, they certainly have found someone with such traits. My family, friends and heart have always been in Avon Park, he summed up. And I cant wait to be on the sidelines on Friday nights.

C M Y K Dear Pharmacist: What are some suggestions toa void catching cold this season? R. P.Albany,N.Y. Answer: The common cold has been around fore on,even though it has morphed a bazillion times. Its brilliant at outsmarting us, this is why we dont have an effective remedy to cureo r prevent it. Health experts will tell you the obvious,get enough rest,allow your body to sleep more if it wants to, drink plenty of water,takec ough drops,take vitamin C,sip chicken broth and k eep a trash bin near the bed in case you have to throw up in a hurry. T hese are all great suggestions,especially the last o ne,but if youve been there,and got the T-shirt, you know this is not nearly enough. Job one is to wash your h ands frequently. Keep them away from your face,and d ont use them to cover a sneeze or a cough. This is s o simple and yet whenever I people watch,I notice everyone fidgeting with their face and heaven forbid picking stuff out of their teeth or nose. Yeah,serious-l y that was going on in the car next to me yesterday. I nstead,use a tissue and then throw it out. Dont opt for a hanky,its kind ofg ross to reuse those. No tissue? Use the crook of your e lbow to cover your nose or mouth. Vitamin C. I mentioned this earlier because it is used commonly to preventc old,and alleviate certain symptoms,particularly t hose involving mucous membranes. It improves your white blood cell count and assists your body inm aking glutathione,a very strong antioxidant that escorts poisons out of your body. Probiotics. The only w ay for you to have a strong immune system is to build one. Good clinical science proves a healthy gut barrier protects your bodyf rom pathogenic invaders, and revs immune function. Mushrooms,the medicinal sort. Look for maitake extract at the health food store,or beta-glucan. Thesem ushrooms provide compounds to your body that f ight germs. Their incredible immune-boosting effects are well documented inm edical research. Vitamin A keeps your m ucous membranes wet and strong,which helps soothe your nose,mouth and throat. When the delicate membranes are functioningp roperly,they will trap particles and pathogens before t hey enter the body. Vitamin D. Its great for most immune disorders because it enhances your Tc ells and helps you keep all sorts of bugs at bay. Usually,doctors suggest about five 10,000 IU during the winter months,but itd epends on your serum levels. Ask your physician. Zinc. This prostate-loving mineral also reduces the duration of illness,ands everity of symptoms. The trick is to start zinc at the very first sneeze. Luckily for you,zinc is found in nuts,dark chocolate and seafood so you can eat your w ay to better levels. Certain spices like thyme,garlic and saffron. These possesses anti-bacterial,anti-fungal and anti-v iral compounds,making them strong medicine in my kitchen. Page 4BNews-SunFriday, January 25, 2013www.newssun.com D R.

Y ou have seen your doctor and had physi-c al therapy,antiinflammatories (if you do not haveu lcers or are taking b lood thinners),and maybe even had an injection of cortisone. Your shoulder still hurts.N ow what do you do? If you can move your should er at least 90 degrees (elbow at shoulder level),moving xray pictures are helpful. The digital mini c-arms have less radiation than the traditionalf luoroscopes. This makes the amount of radiation needed to d o moving pictures (cine sible. When a stillx-ray is t aken,the space the rotator cuff occupies may appear norm al. When you move your shoulder,the rotator cuff pulls the head of the humerus intot he socket on the shoulder blade. If the space narrows significantly or if a spur is s een,you have an impingement. As you raise your arm a bove your body,the space for the rotator cuff between the acromion (the bone where your collarbone and shoulder blade form a joint) and theh ead of the humerus narrows. If the acromion is tilted or if the under surface has spurs, the rotator cuff is pinched. This can become painful and, if the spurs are rough,can, over time,lead to tears. I f the mini c-arm cine is equivocal or if one is not a vailable,then an MRI or if you have a pacemaker a CT scan can be done. These are getting more accurate and can generally show impingement,b ut may miss small tears. If your rotator cuff is being pinchedor you have a tear, then surgery is an option. This can be done as an outpatientt hrough a small incision or using the arthroscope. The outcomes for both are close with the mini open being slightly higher. The underneath surface of the acromion is smoothed and the rotator cuff is examined and repaired, if needed. Metal anchors with sutures are placed in the bone and the tendon is reattached to the bone. Tears within the tendon can also be sutured. Sometimes the tendon is too degenerated to do a repair. If the ball and socket joint is normal, smoothing the underneath surface of the acromion will relieve pain and improve function If there is a lot of arthritis,a reverse shoulder prosthesis,replacing the joint with one that does not need a rotator cuff to function,may be a better answer. If you have a rotator cuff repair,you will need to protect the shoulder while the tendon is healing. This is generally about six weeks. Your doctor will probably put you in a sling. Some doctors use a pillow to keep your arm away from your body to take tension off the repair. Older patients may benefit from starting assisted motion with the therapist at about two weeks as older shoulders tend to get stiff more easily than younger ones. After six weeks,strengthening exercises are started,initially under the supervision ofa physical therapist. You will see changes for about 6-12 months after your surgery. If you have pain in the I had therapy and my shoulder still hurts Now what? Guest Column Dr. Diana Carr See PAIN,page 9B

He had n o idea what the answer was,but he knew he needed to get that question right ino rder to pass. Making sure the professor w as not watching,he tapped Tiny on his shoulder. Whats the answer to the last question?Bubba whispered. Tiny laughed. In fact,h e was afraid he had laughed too loudly,so he looked a round to make sure the professor had not noticed anything,then he turned toB ubba. Bubba,youre so stupid. Everyone knows Old M acDonald had a farm. Oh yeah,replied Bubba. I remember now.So,he p icked up his No. 2 pencil and started to write the answer in the blank. Then, he stopped. Tapping Tinys shoulder again,he whis-p ered,iny,how do you spell farm? Tiny responded,ou really are dumb,Bubba. Everyone knows how tos pell far. It is spelled E-I-EI-O. I gnorance of Old MacDonalds farm may noth ave too many long-lasting effects,but ignorance of Gods will has some everlasting consequences. We read in Acts 17:30-31, Therefore having overlooked the times of ignorance,God is now declaring to men that all people everywhere should repent,b ecause He has fixed a day in which He will judge the world in righteousness through a Man whom He has appointed,having furnished proof to all men by raising Him from the dead. Some have said, Ignorance is bliss. However,there is nothing blissful about being lost for eternity. Jesus said in Luke 13:3,I tell you,no,but unless you repent,you will all likewise perish.He gave the very same command in verse 5. Why would He stress the importance of repentance? Repentance is the process whereby we turn from the ways of sin and turn to the ways of Christ. We cannot do this if we do not listen to and obey Gods will as it is given to us in the Bible. Heed the wisdom and warning of the inspired apostle Peter as he spoke toa group of Christians who already had repented of their sins in 1 Peter 1:13-15: Therefore,prepare your minds for action,keep sober in spirit,fix your hope completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. As obedient children,do not be conformed to the former lusts which were yours in your ignorance,but like the Holy One who called you,be holy yourselves also in all your behavior.The conclusion is simple:Ignorance is death. So,repent,follow Christ,and never turn back. Kevins Komments is presented by the Sebring Parkway church of Christ assembling at 3800 Sebring Parkway, Sebring. Ignorace is not bliss! Special to the News-SunAVON PARK As the A von Park Church of Christ celebrates 100 years of meeting at its location, church members invite the public to share in thec hurchs rich history. It all began in February 1913. Two families,the Ott Parks and L.A. Wolff families,began meeting in theu pstairs of an old schoolhouse at 200 S. Forest Ave. They were soon joined by the Sam P. Durrance and Jerry White families. In 1918,the church continuedt o grow with the addition of the J.D. Ott family,as well a s Clarence Clark and family,Lizzie Welch,J.F. Welch, H.C. Hinton and family,J.B. Paden and family,and laterf ollowed by the Charles W. Woods family in 1919. In 1926,the old schoolhouse was blown down by a hurricane,forcing the churcht o temporarily relocate to the Brickell Building on Main Street. During this time,the auditorium of the present building,designed by archi-t ect Bill Heim,was being built,using some of the materials left from the destruction of the old schoolhouse. On Feb. 3,1930 the new c hurch building opened its doors for the first time. To c elebrate the occasion,there were all-day services and a dinner on the grounds. At the time,Clyde C. Corner wast he preacher. From that time to the present,the church has continued to grow and with it the building has continued to expand to meet its needs. I n 1948,the classrooms at the back of the building were added. In 1958,the outside classroom wing was built. The auditorium was remod-e led in 1961 with new lights and ceiling being installed as well as a baptistery. During this same year,the parking lot was paved and the yard was landscaped. I n 1971,new benches,carpet and windows were i nstalled and in 1978,the balcony,nursery and restrooms were added. Them ulti-purpose room was finished in 1980. The newest a ddition has been the fenced-in playground and basketball court that was just completed at the end of2 012. The Avon Park Church of Christ has been the beginning of many preaching careers. Among those start-i ng out here were S.P. Durrance,Fred Walker, Gustas Hill,Bob Thomas, James Jordon,Glenn Shoemaker,Maurice Jacksona nd Steve Morphew. Foreign missionaries who started out here were Sarah Andrews, who served in Japan,and James D. Judd,who served many years in Africa. T he church family in Avon Park also enjoys a variety of f ellowship opportunities. For the past 10 years around the Feb. 3 anniversary,thec hurch has hosted a Friends Day.This event is a time of w orship,fellowship and,of course,great food. Tuesday night dinner out is also a long-standing get-together.M embers sign up and meet at a local restaurant for dinner and fellowship. The newest activity is the Family Night get-together. Once am onth,everyone is invited for an activity such as bowling,a game night or a hayride. These activities vary month to month. I n addition to these,the teens have their own activities. Every year over Labor Day weekend,the teens attend Son Quest a great spiritual gathering of teensf rom across Florida and the United States. T he church will celebrate its 100th year officially on Sunday,which has become ah omecoming of sorts. Many past members who have m oved away will be joining together for this occasion.

On March 22,1952 a group of 19 Lutherans after holding services for about a year,took courage and organized a congregation of the Lutheran ChurchMissouri Synod and a constitution and charter was signed by those charter members. The congregation adopted the name Faith Lutheran Church,taking a Scripture verse from Romans 3:28 as the theme,... that a man is justified by faith without the deeds of the L aw.The name indicated their firm belief of Christ as Savior. The word faitha lso expressed the need those first 19 members could f oresee in building a congregation. It would take faith in the Lord of the Church to accomplish His task. The Rev. Edward G. T ippin received a Divine Call from Faith congregation a nd was ordained and commissioned as its first resident pastor on Aug. 3,1952. S ervices were held at the Womans Club on Oak Street u ntil the original sanctuary was completed and dedicated on April 8,1956. The origin al sanctuary,is now used for Faiths Closet,the thrift store.

C M Y K By RYAN PEARSON A P Entertainment WriterPARK CITY,Utah The Sundance Film Festival isnt home to many shoot-em-up movies,but action-oriented actors at the festival are facing questions about Hollywoods role in American gun violence. Guy Pearce and Alexander Skarsgard are among those who say Hollywood shares in the blame. Pearce is in Park City, Utah,to support the family drama Breathe In,but hes pulled plenty of imaginary t riggers in violent films such as Lockdownand Lawless.He says Hollywood may make guns seem coolto the broader culture,but there are vast variations in filmsapproach to guns. Hollywood probably does play a role,Pearce said. Itsa broad spectrum though. There are films that use guns flippantly,then there are films that use guns in a way that would make you never want to look at a gun ever again because of the effect that its had on the other peop le in the story at the time. So to sort of just say Hollywood and guns,its a broad palette that youre dealing with,I think. But Im sure it does have an effect. As does video games,as do stories on the news. All sorts of things probably seep into the consciousness. Skarsgard,who blasted away aliens in Battleship, says he agrees that Hollywood has some responsibility for how it depicts violence on-screen. When (NRA executive director) Wayne LaPierre blames it on Hollywood and s ays guns have nothing to do with it,there is a reason,he said. I mean,Im from Sweden. We do have violent video games in Sweden. My teenage brother plays them. He watches Hollywood movies. We do have insane people in Sweden and in Canada. But we dont have 30,000 gun deaths a year. es,theres only 10 million people in Sweden as opposed to over 300 (million) in the United States. But the numbers just dont add up. There are over 300 million weapons in this country.And they help. They do kill people. Dear Abby: I a m the single mother of identicalt win boys. They insist on dressing alike and use their own secret language.I have always had trouble telling them apart. When t hey were young,it was cute,but as they are growing older Im starting tow orry. There 12. When they o versleep,they shower together to save time. Their teacher took me aside during a conference and said they seem to beo verly affectionate with each other and might benef it from some time with a masculine role model. When I questioned her,shes aid there is gossip that they were seen touching a nd possibly even kissing. My research has brought up the idea of twincest,a nd I am worried my boys may be falling into these habits. How would you s uggest making them stop? Everyone keeps suggesting s eparation,but they share a room and I dont have another one or the money to build one. Help! Mom With Two Much Trouble D ear Mom: You obviously love your boys,but please stop worrying. According to David Baron, M.D. an internationally respected psychiatrist at the University of SouthernC alifornia at this point one of the most harmful t hings you could do is to blow this out of proportion. Twins have a special bond. They feel safer with each other than with theirp eers. If this persists,consult a therapist,for your peace of mind if nothing else. But please do not jump the gun because ofg ossip. Dear Abby: I wear dentures. I have never gone out in public without them. However,I have seen people I know take them out in restaurants,etc. It is not only awful to look at,but dont they realize how they look? Am I shallow for not wanting anyone to see me without my smile? Is there some social etiquette thats being broken? Toothless in Colorado Dear Toothless: Of course there is. The active word here is discretion. If a dental appliance is illfitting and uncomfortable, it should not be left on the table or displayed like a goldfish in a glass of water for all to admire. And needI add that a trip to the dentist should be scheduled ASAP to remedy the problem? Dear Abby: Im a college student and still live with my parents. My two older sisters moved outy ears ago. I never asked them why,but Im sure its because our father is emotionally abusive. He talks down to us and makes us feel inadequate. H e has belittled my mother for years,to the p oint that she doesnt bother arguing with him anymore. She used to playm usic all the time,but shes now afraid to bother a nybody.I can honestly say I never loved my father,and I wish Mom had divorced him years ago.

Pain may be pinched nerve Continued from page 4B B y BOB GARVER Special to the News-SunLast week,I spent the better part of my review for Zero Dark Thirtytalkinga bout Jessica Chastains chances of winning an Oscar for Best Actress. I will not need to spend the same amount of time talking aboutC hastains chance of winning an Oscar for Mama. In fact,not only do I believe that Chastain will not win an Oscar for Mama,but Ib elieve that Mamamay hurt her chances of winning an Oscar for Zero DarkT hirty. Studios love to use January and February as ad umping ground for bad movies starring suddenlyr elevant nominees. Perhaps the most infamous example is 2007s Norbit,an awfulE ddie Murphy vehicle with a release that coincided with M urphys nomination for Dreamgirls. Many felt that the blanket of advertisements featuring Murphy in a fat suit and a drag lost him thes upport of Academy voters and ultimately cost him the O scar. Thers nothing in Mamathat will embarrass Chastain as much as a fats uit or drag,but the film is generic enough that voters w ill know that she is still taking paycheckroles. The film opens with the p light of two young sisters, Victoria and Lilly.Their murderous father takes them to an abandoned cabin to kill them,but is stopped by as upernatural creature. Five years later,the girls are rescued from the abandoned cabin and placed in the custody of their Uncle Lucas( Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and his girlfriend Annabel ( Chastain). The girls are super-cute,of course,theb etter to juxtapose with the creepy elements of the film. 9-year-old Victoria (Megan Charpentier) has retained a little of her knowledge of the world outside the cabin,but 5-year-old Lilly (Isabelle Nelisse) is leaving the onlyl ife shes ever known. How did the girls survive for five years without adult supervision? Simple,they were raised by Mama. L ucas is keen on raising the girls,but Annabel isnt s ure if shes up for it. They dont have the means to raisea family,she isnt ready for so much responsibility (shes a rock guitarist with lots of tattoos,so the implication is that shes pretty irresponsible anyway),the girls are s everely developmentally disabled,and scary things start happening around the house as soon as they arrive. Then Lucas gets put in ac oma after some late-night creepiness,and she has to do i t all alone. She manages to surprise everyone including herself by becoming a self-l ess,loving guardian. Too bad then,that Mama wants t he girls back. Of course,there wouldnt be much of a movie if Mama s imply killed Lucas and Annabel or abducted the girls,even though she apparently has the ability to travel between the cabin andL illys location at will. Mama exists as a source of cheap horror movie scares: going bump in the night, summoning unfriendly but-t erflies,lurking in shadows, that sort of thing. One scene s ees her interact with Lilly in a manner shamelesslyr eminiscent of the aranormal Activityseries. I will admit that shes pretty scary once we get a good look at her.The film was produced by Guillermo del T oro (Pans Labyrinth) and you can see his knack for unsettling visuals at work in the last act. Impressive ending aside, Mamais a dull PG-13 horror movie indistinguishable f rom countless other dull PG-13 horror movies. Its box office success can bea ttributed to an easy-toremember title and the star p ower of Jessica Chastain. Since I want Chastain to win the Oscar,and her strongest c ompetition seems to be Jennifer Lawrence for Silver Linings Playbook,I will take this opportunity to remind everybody that lasty ear Lawrence starred in House at the End of the Street,a PG-13 horror movie even duller than Mama. T he film is rated PG-13 for violence and terror,some d isturbing images and thematic elements. Its runningt ime is 100 minutes. C ontact Bob Garver at rrg251@nyu.edu.

C M Y K LIVING 10B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, January 25, 2013THE IDEALISTJ ed Bartlet of The West WingJosiah Edward JedBartlet (played by Martin Sheen) was the president that many American viewers wished they could h ave had. His administration was all about noble causes and making government work for the people. Among his accomplishments:He created millions of new American jobs, masterminded Social Security reform and brokered a peace settlement between Israel and Palestine.THE MARTYRDavid Palmer of It has been said that Palmer (played by Dennis Haysbert) had so much credibility and commanding presence as an AfricanAmerican president that Barack Obama benefited when he ran in real life. Alas,a world that needed counterterrorism expert Jack Bauer to save every day was not a good world in which to be president. Palmer barely survived an assassination attempt in Season 2 and was gunned down at the beginning of Season 5.THE TRAIL BLAZERMackenzie Allen of Commander in ChiefVice President MacAllen (played by Geena Davis) became the first female president after the death of her running mate just a year and a half into his term. Her work was at times sabotaged by sexist misgivings about a womans ability to lead,but Allen was a scrapper. The show was canceled after one season and we havent had a female president yet,so maybe she wasnt as convincing a sell as Palmer was. With the arrival of the dysfunctional first family of Penn,we round up our favorite fictional leader s By David MartindaleFort Worth Star-Telegramosh Gad,the star and co-creator of Penn,wants to make this perfectly clear: The White House family in his new sitcom,which airs 9:30 p.m. ET Thursday on NBC,is not modeled after the Obamas. Now that thats settled,everyone in America can respond with a collective,ell, duh! Because isnt that already obvious? President Dale Gilchrist (played by Bill PullmanJenna Elfman more closely resemble Mitt and Ann Romney than they do the first couple. And the last time we checked,there was no goofball first son residing in the White House,setting accidental fires in the Rose Garden and inciting international incidents with visiting dignitaries. If a real-life Skip Gilchrist (Gads character) was wreaking that kind of havoc in Washington,you had better believe the 24-hour news networks would be on top of the story. Still,its fun to imagine a comedic wild man a John Belushi,a John Candy,a Jack Black or a Josh Gad ... yes,he wields that kind of manic energy throwing decorum to the wind and doing a belly flop in the Lincoln Memorial Reflecting Pool. The Obama family is almost supernaturally perfect and perfection doesnt really lead to comedy,says Gad,aTonyAward nominee for his performance in Broadways The Book of Mormon. But you can look at some of the presidential predecessors and you can see dysfunction in the halls of the White House for at least 100 years. And whats so interesting now is,under the scrutiny of the 24-hour news cycle, what happens if a dysfunctional family were to be front and center? How do you avoid the blitzkrieg of questions? Pennisnt the first TV series to explore this premise,although inside-theWhite-House shows arent always played for laughs. P HOTO COURTESY OF NBC PennJosh Gad as hapless Skip hams it up for the camera.Behind him (from left) is Andre Holland as press secretary Marshall Malloy,Jenna Elfman as first lady and stepmom Emily, Bill Pullman as President Dale Gilchrist,Martha MacIsaac as oldest daughter Becca,Amara Miller and Benjamin Stockham as Marigold and Xander,the two youngest of the Gilchrist clan. THE SCHEMERCharles Logan of President Logan (played by Gregory Itzin) was a petty man wielding big power,a dangerous combination. At first, Logan has us fooled. Viewersb elieved he was an ineffectual, i ndecisive leader. Only later did we discover that he was involved in President Palmers murder and a terror ist attack on U.S. soil. The snake kept trying to wipe his hands clean by pinning the blame on Jack Bauer.HONORABLE MENTIONFitzgerald Thomas Grant III (Tony Goldwyn),adulterous president being blackmailed in Scandal.

C M Y K Special to the News-SunSEBRING Highlands County Sheriff Susan Benton presented Sergeant Richard ScottWilliams with aV alor Award on Wednesday for his actions last S eptember that ultimately saved the life of a Highlands County resident. The Awardo f Valor is the second highest award presented by the H ighlands County Sheriffs Office and is based on a direct display of courage that u ltimately saved a life,prevented a serious crime that preserved public safety or the apprehension of a person who has committed a seriousc rime with violent overtones. On Sept. 26,2012 Williams was off duty and working out at the Anytime Fitness Facility in Avon Park.D uring his workout Williams o bserved another patron, Robert Tillman,collapse to the floor.

For nearly two years after the Affordable CareA ct became law, Republican Gov. Rick Scott and the GOP-controlledL egislature had hoped the Supreme Court would overturn the law,but justicesu pheld it. There was a philosophy, a n ideology that this shouldnt be the law even though it was the law.Wed on't have a contingency plan. Were reacting now at t he 11th hour essentially and were flat-footed and completely underprepared to implement that law as it is,said Rep. DwightD udley,a Democrat from St. Petersburg. A House committee tasked with implementing the law including setting upw ays people can choose a health plan was deluged w ith complicated insurance regulations during a presentation in Tallahassee about h ow to ensure that Florida statutes comply with the new law,leaving many with more questions than answers. S ome wondered why the state appears unprepared nearly three years after the law was passed. Are you saying the previous leaders of the House and Senate and the governor instructed you not to prepare to give us thisi nformation that were looking for now,asked Rep. Perry Thurston (DFort Lauderdale). Wences Troncoso,deputy c ommissioner of the Life and health Florida Office of Insurance Regulation,said his agency had received a letter from former House Speaker Dean Cannon andp rior leadership. And Belinda Miller,general c ounsel for the office,said the staff completed a draft of a bill after the federall aw was passed but we did not pursue its adoption at t hat time because there was no appetite to do so. Miller added that even if the bill had been enacted in 2010,it would have to bea mended as federal health officials continue to come o ut with new regulations. Republican Rep. Gayle Harrell worried the agencyd oesnt have enough staff and a plan in place to hand le proposals during the Legislative session. The deadlines are so s hort and we are really under the gun that I have a great deal of concern over t he ability to have a market out there,she said.

Rob Reed,the incoming president,reflected on the chambers history,which started 99 years ago as aB oard of Trade by the citys founder,George Sebring. Reed said it was the chamber that purchased the first street lights on The Circle andr aised money for the first sewer system to serve the early residents. Prior to World War II chamber delegates went to Washington to lobby for Hendricks Field, which is now the Sebring Regional Airport,and it was the chamber that helped save Highlands Hammock State Park.

C M Y K The NCAA allows each bowl to provide up to $550 i n gifts to 125 participants per school,while the s chools can provide a little extra. The reward to the Florida athletic association? Last y ear,each SEC school received $20.1 million in bowl bounties despite teams keeping $12.8 million for e xpenses. A nyone who pretends that college football players are being properly compensated with scholarships and o ther benefits from universities is being disingenuous. T hese are college students who essentially are being stiffed the wages that there due for full-time jobs a lbeit higher-profile ones than a typical college job like w aiting tables. That might finally be changing,albeit in a small way. T he head of the NCAA now supports a stipend for athletes to cover costs beyond tuition,books and fees,The Associated Press reported. Both coaches in the BCSc hampionship spoke in support of the idea. I still think the overriding factor here is that these y oung men put in so much time with being a student a nd then their responsibilities playing the sport,that they dont have an opportunity to make any money at all,Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly said. A ll jokes about the effort that Notre Dame put into t he game aside,Kelly is right. College footballs enormous television contracts are just the beginning of the h ypocrisy of not properly compensating players. C ollege athletes also have their likenesses used in video games and jerseys with their numbers sold by t heir schools without seeing the first penny. In 2011,the NCAAs Division I Board of Directors a pproved a rule change giving colleges the option of p roviding athletes with a $2,000 stipend for expenses not covered by scholarships. Many schools objected to t he change,so the board delayed its implementation. S ome colleges worried whether they could afford the stipends and how they affected Title IX compliance. W e dont pretend to have the answers to those issues, but a stipend seems the minimum that colleges can prov ide to athletes making millions for them. A t least its more than a watch,cap and hoodie.

It is my response to an article that the News-Sun ran last week, about the Last Chance Ranch closing due to lack of funds. It concerns me that our government puts more emphasis on elaborate Washington affairs and Presidential vacations,than it does on children in need. Wouldnt it make more sense to scale down the Inauguation,replace it with a simple ceremony to show the world that we continue to beleive in our countries traditions,and use the money saved for local,worthy causes? Im sure many would agree that investing in our youth now would yield a higher return in the future for our nation. According to your article, 750 graduates have successfully come through the program at the Ranch. Thats 750 potentially,productive citizens from just one county! With 67 counties,Florida has the potential for more than 50,000 graduates! Just imagine nationwide .... I dont know if one person can really make a difference, but if Ive got some people thinking (or re-thinking then Ive fulfilled my personal,moral obligation to speak up .... Dear Mr. President: I respect your position and realize that you are a very busy man,but I feel obligated to send you this e-mail. While watching the ABC morning news this morning about the planned inauguration and the amount of tax payers money being spent on it,I became disheartened. Please allow me to explain; Here in Highlands County, Florida,we are facing the closure of a much needed organization that has helped our countys youth for the last 30 years. Its called the Last Chance Ranch,and due to the lack of funding,will be closing their doors this month. This was a good organization that I had the privilege of interacting with by hiring some of the kids to work for me. They worked hard and did a great job,and went on to graduate the program as productive citizens. I have linked the local newspaper article for you to read. As it will tell you, there have been some 750 graduates from this program who are now leading stronger,productive lives because of their good fortune to be involved with the Last Chance Ranch. It just doesnt seem right that this is happening when keeping the organization running would cost a tiny fraction of the money being spent on (in my opinion) unnecessary things like the inauguration or Hawaiian vacations. I would lend myself to helping in any way that I could to reverse this situation. Could you please look into this matter to see what government help is available for them? This situation shouldnt be ignored. Dont you agree that the youth of this country are our future? C. Thomas Wirth Sebring The letter was copied to Florida Governor Rick Scott.Sponsors help Project Graduation Chili NightEditor: The Lake Placid High Project Graduation 2013 Committee would like to thank our sponsors for a successful Chili Night Fundraiser St. James Catholic Church,First Presbyterian Womens Group,Lake Placid Womens Club,Golden Corral Restaurant,and Pats BBQ. Sharon Reid Lake Placid High School Project Graduation Where do I start to talk about the last 10 days in Norway? Perhaps with the N orthern Lights. We got a glimpse of them one night w hile on our cruise ship. Lucky for us,the best view was on the deck we weres taying on and our cabin was near the doors to the o utside. So we got a good look at them. It is hard to describe s eeing the Northern Lights for real rather than in pictures. Theywere dimmer t han I expected,a soft green light that moved a cross the sky. It was a beautiful sight to see. Trust me,it was well worth standing outside in a wind so frigid my face froze. U nfortunately,that night was our one look at them. You need clear skies to view the lights,and the weather decided it wasnt going to cooperate with us after that night.In fact,t here were onshore excursions that were cancelled d ue to weather. Our last two days at sea had the large ship rocking some, which was soothing if you were laying in bed butm ade walking an adventure. I do not blame the cruise line for any of this. Good as they were in their treat-m ent of us,they could not control the weather. Instead they worked hard to make sure we enjoyed ourselves and were comfortable. They made extra sure we ate. If youve ever been on a cruise ship you know that one of the primary forms of entertainment is eating. Breakfast and lunch were buffets while dinner was an excellent three course meal.While I didnt get to try everything offered (if I had the numbers on the scale would be a lot scarier then they are at the moment) I did sample a few things I dont recall eating before,such as ox and stewed reindeer.Yes,I ate reindeer meat. Dont tell Rudolph. Don and I got to visit a number of Norwegian coastal towns while on the cruise. This is where my husbands research and preparation for the trip really shone. Thanks to him we didnt freeze to death on any of these excursions in fact,wew ere so comfortable we didnt have to use some of t he things wed brought such as stuff called Hot Hands,which from thed escription on the packaging is like sticking a minih eater in your pocket. One item we did use extensively is something c alled I am not kidding aktrax.Yaktrax are essentially chains you can strap to the bottom of your boots or shoes to keep yourf ooting on ice and snow. I can testify that these babies work.I could feel them gripping the ice when I put my foot down.Thisd id not keep me from hanging on to Dons arm a Norwegian toddler is more surefooted than I amw hen it comes to walking on snow and ice. But without these on my boots I am sure there would have been several times Id havew ound up flat on my back or my rear,which would have entertained anyone watching while I would be wondering ifone couldr eally die of embarrassment. Sadly,only one of my Yaktrax made it home. The other one slipped off my boot somewhere when we traveled from Kirkenes to our hotel in Oslo. Which is a shame because if I ever go anyplace theres a chance of snow and ice I want to have these handy. I will be candid. I would not choose to live in Norway. It is cold. Eating out costs a small fortune. Im not sure theve heard of Diet Dr. Pepper. But Im not opposed to visiting the place again.It is a beautiful country,and the people are kind and friendly.And the lights are still there.I wouldnt mind finding them just one more time.

An extension would also allow the agency to hire and train new staff,said Troncoso. T he deadline for all products to be filed is May 1,he said. The Legislative session ends May 3. I can understand why y oure frustrated because this torrential rain of filings is due any day and we're now asking can we have some time and exemption and were hitting you at thel ast minute,said Miller. But she stressed her a gency has been working all along on the issue,but that its been difficultb ecause constant updates from federal health officials a re making it a fluid process. Florida lawmakers are facing two major decisions regarding the federal healtho verhaul. They must choose whether to expand M edicaid coverage to roughly 900,000 more lowincome families andw hether to have the state run on its own the health e xchange where people can pick coverages or partner with the federal govern-m ent. The federal government is offering to pick up the entire tab of the M edicaid expansion for the first three years and about 9 0 percent after that. Florida spends about $21 billion a year to cover nearly 3 million of the states poorest residents,abouth alf of whom are children. Scott and lawmakers also have another new wrinkle to consider. A quirk in the federal health law means some U.S. citizens would be forced to go without coverage,while legal immigrantsr esiding in the same state could still get it. The overhaul expanded the federal-state program for low-income and dis-a bled people but the Supreme Court made the Medicaid expansion optional for states. That means if Scott decides nott o expand Medicaid, Floridians who were born in the U.S. may not get cov-e rage under Medicaid,but legal immigrants could receive coverage under thee xchange. That decision could put S cott in an awkward position on immigration. He has been vocally opposed toe xpanding Medicaid and the federal health law,sayi ng he is worried about the cost to Florida taxpayers. e are concerned about how legal immigrants and U.S. citizens are treatedd ifferently under the presidents health care law, w hich we continue to learn more about. The governor is focused on finding solu-t ions that will lower cost and improve the access and q uality of health care for all Florida families,said Scott's spokeswoman M elissa Sellers. Arizona officials called attention to the problem last week,when Republican Gov. Jan Brewer opted toa ccept the Medicaid expansion.

Highlighting the import ance of the event,School Superintendent Wally Cox, D irector of Secondary Education Dr. Ruth Heckman,and school boardm embers Donna Howerton and Jan Shoop awarded the a dvancing student their certificates. The science fair is open to every grade in middle school. Students compete within science categories,not by gradel evel. There are eight subjects,including bio-chemistry,physics/astronomy, botany and behavioral/social science. B ecause the goal is to show a thorough understanding of the scientific method,a sixth-grader can compete with an older student. T he scientific method is precise,made up of discreet steps and parts. Science fair projects are a test of how to conduct ane xperiment. Each must include:a question; a hypothesis; an abstract; a materialsl ist; a manipulated variable; a responding variable; constants,step-by-directions (oft he experiment,which must be conducted three times); d ata table(ss clusion; and log book. Each of the steps or parts a re judged separately and scored. Those are added t ogether to form the final score. A student has to earn a certain number of points in order to pass on to the regionals. T his means,while there are first,second and third p laces,more than three students may advance. Two categories were a lmost overwhelmed with participation this year. T wenty-seven students entered presentations in c hemistry 15 of whom moved on.

C ontinued from page 1A B y ERICA WERNER and JULIE PACE Associated PressWASHINGTON P resident Barack Obama will launch a campaign next week aimed at overhauling the nations flawed immigration system and creatingl egal status for millions,as a bipartisan Senate group nears agreement on achieving the same goals. The proposals from O bama and lawmakers will mark the start of what is expected to be a contentious and emotional process with deep political implications. Latino voterso verwhelmingly backed Obama in the 2012 elect ion,leaving Republicans grappling for a way to regain their standing witha n increasingly powerful pool of voters. T he president will press his case for immigration changes during a trip to Las Vegas Tuesday. The Senate working group is also aim-i ng to outline its proposals next week,according to a S enate aide. Administration officials say Obamas second-termi mmigration push will be a continuation of the princip les he outlined during his first four years in office but failed to act on. He ise xpected to revive his littlenoticed 2011 immigration blueprint,which calls for a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants that i ncludes paying fines and back taxes; increased border security; mandatory penalties for businesses that employ unauthorized immi-g rants; and improvements to the legal immigration system,including giving green cards to high-skilled workers and lifting caps on legal immigration for the immediate family members of U.S. citizens. What has been absent in the time since he put thosep rinciples forward has been a willingness by Republicans,generally speaking,to move forward with comprehensive immi-g ration reform,White House press secretary Jay Carney said. What he hopes is that that dynamic has changed. T he political dynamic does appear to have shifted following the November election. Despite making little progress on immigration in his first term,O bama won more than 70 percent of the Latino vote, i n part because of the conservative positions on immigration thatR epublican nominee Mitt Romney staked out during t he GOP primary. Latino voters accounted for 10 percent of the electorate in November. The president met priv ately Friday morning with the Congressional Hispanic C aucus to discuss his next steps on immigration. Among those in the meet-i ng was Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.who s aid Obama told lawmakers immigration reform is his number one legislative pri-o rity. That could bump back the presidents efforts to s eek legislation enacting stricter gun laws,another i ssue he has vowed to make a top second term priority. The Senate immigration group is also pressing for quick action,aiming tod raft a bill by March and pass legislation in their chamber by August,said the aide,who requested anonymity in order to discuss private deliberations.

He warned,however,that the proposal is in process and has to be approved by the Legislaturea nd the teachers union before it would come into effect. The proposed raise actually made Steven Picklesimer,science teacher at Sebring High School and president of the localt eachers union,angry. The Governorsbudget is the w ish list given to legislators to do with what they want. It is a political tool for the Governor to buys ome public opinion,he said. If (the governor) cared about t eachers he would give us back the 3 percent they took (towards our pension benefit) and then talk about more money. Not to mention we had a 2 p ercent reduction prior to the new year,and now we lost the p ayroll deduction. Teachers in Florida are 5 percent lower in pay this year (2013 Now add the fact that our salaries have not gone up since 2 007,and since then we had two years where we did not receive an experience step. In addition,Picklesimer told the News-Sun,since 2007 the cost of living has gone up 6.4 p ercent and we have seen no increase in pay. C ritics are also concerned that the proposed raise only affects full-time teachers. Why arent paras,psychologists and social workers also included,or anym ember of the educational team at a school,they ask. The issue will be addressed in the upcoming regular Florida legislative session.

Fire employees were quick to defend their current plans in order to maintain their future benefits andr etirement funds. Over the past two years, d ifferent variations of the old plan,as well as the proposed new plan,were pre-s ented to the fire department for approval and a cceptance; none of which have been taken. The lengthy,and costly,barg aining negotiations have taken a more serious turn with the addition of a special magistrate coming into the equation. With a magistrate coming in it brings in a third party that is unfamiliar with what has been going on, Noethlich said. Normallyg rievances would come up through the fire department to Chief (Brad on to me I feel like in certain situations they (fire department employees)d ont trust that things would be decided upon fairl y. I feel as if they feel that we will automatically back the fire chief no matterw hat. I cant say that I would in every situation. T here is a lot of tension between the fire department and the heads ... a lot. N oethlich went on to describe the significant costs of continuing the 23 s lated firefighters defined contribution plans. In 2012, t he total cost of funding the citys firefighterspension plan was $935,591. The pension plan is split between the city,FloridaR etirement System and the firefighterscontributions. The city paid $31,577.89 per firefighter to this plan in 2012. The fire department makes up 48 percent of the cost of the citys entire pension plan for public employees. A ccording to a projection study by an accounting firm h ired by the city,the expected amount that could be paid in the coming yearsi f the current plan stays in place could begin at more t han $1 million. e would have to pay that; the tax payers wouldh ave to pay that. Theres nothing we could do about it,Noethlich explained. Its a substantial number and it fluctuates,Noethlich s aid. In a plan like this,the city accepts all the risks, therefore the taxpayers assume all the risks. They dont have anything to lose.I cant say that this is the reason that so many cities are going into bankruptcy, but I can bet you this a part of the reason. The current plan allows retired firefighters to receive a set amount of income until their death.T he average of the highest paid five years of service is t he amount the firefighter would be paid each year on top of what they alreadyh ave stashed awayas well as Social Security bene fits. So you can see why they are trying to hold on to it,N oethlich explained. If the magistrate meeting is a success for the city and t he new plan 401a,or defined contribution plan, d oes come into play,the vested members of the fire department (those who have 10 or more years of experience) will be able to retaint heir defined benefit plan. The city would pay out those vested members pension through death. All new hires or non-vested members would automatically go to the new 401a plan. There are nine vested firefighters employed by theS ebring Fire Department. Details for the 401a plan w ill continue to be hammered out between city staff and the special magis-t rate. So far,the basics of the new proposed plan will a llow firefighters to gain 3 percent of their three highest paying years assumingt hey work a traditional 30year career until the age of retirement. T he meeting is of great significance to the city,its e mployees and its taxpayers. Other issues including disciplines,grievances, investigations and health insurance will also be pre-s ented during Mondays meeting. The special magistrate meeting will be held at 9 a.m. Monday at city hall. City, firefighters meet Monday with magistrate Continued from page 1A By THOMAS BEAUMONT A ssociated PressCUMMING,Iowa U.S. Sen. Tom Harkin said Saturday he will not seek a sixth term in 2014,a deci-s ion that frees a new generation of Iowa Democrats to seek higher office and eases some of the burden Republicans face in retak-i ng the Senate. Harkin,chairman of an influential Senate committee,announced his decision during an interview withT he Associated Press,and said the move could surprise some. B ut the 73-year-old cited his age he would be 81 at the end of a sixth term as a factor in the decision,sayi ng it was time to pass the torch he has held for nearly 30 years. I just think its time for me to step aside,Harkint old the AP. Harkin,first elected in 1984,ranks 7th in seniority, and 4th among majority Democrats. He is chairmano f the health,education, labor and pensions committee,and chairman of the largest appropriations subcommittee. H e has long aligned with the Senates more liberal members,and his signaturel egislative accomplishment is the 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act. Harkin wont seek sixth Senate term

C M Y K Special to the News-SunSEBRING Students at T he Kindergarten Learning Center in Highlands County w ill study water use and water conservation thanks toa Splash! school grant from the Southwest Florida Water Management District. The goal of the Splash! school grant program is top rovide teachers with funding to enhance student knowledge of topics that meet the districts core mission and teach studentsa bout their local watersheds, water conservation,quality and supply. Splash! school grants provide up to $3,000 per school on a reimbursement basis and are available to public school teachers. Melissa Gulvin,the districts K education coordinator,said the grant program is important because these funds are often the deciding factor in whether students learn firsthand about local water resources or not. or instance,if a schools campus is near a local water body,students may conduct hands-on water testing and cleanups while learning how their actions affect the health of that local water body and the sur-r ounding watershed,she said. T eacher Elena WirickVelez at The Kindergarten Learning Center was awarded $1,560. Through classroom activities and a fieldt rip to Highlands Hammock, students will learn how the water cycle,weather and freshwater resources are connected. Students wills urvey the families of other schoolmates about water use and promote water conservation. This year,94 Splash! grants were awarded across the districts 16-county region to educate students on water resources. Past Splash! grant projects include student monitoring of local water quality,environmental field studies and school or community outreach campaigns designed to encourage water conservation. In addition to Splash! grant funding,the district offers free teacher professional development workshops and curriculum mate-r ials. The publications are correlated to Floridas Next Generation Sunshine State Science Standards and the Common Core State Standards and can be ordered on the districts website atW aterMatters.org/publications/.

C M Y K By DAN HOEHNE d aniel.hoehne@newssun.comAVON PARK The South Florida State College Panthers honored outgoingp resident Dr. Norman Stephens twice during Fridays home opener. First, with a pre-game cere mony, including gifts to Dr. Stephens and his wife, along w ith a ceremonial first pitch. Then the Panthers made t he day a positive one all around with a come-fromb ehind 6-5 win over the College of Central Florida Patriots. Things started off quietly enough with SFSC starter James Gray and Patriot southpaw Darren Fischer zipping through one-two-three firsts. But Central Florida scratched for three runs in the second when Grays command got a little dicey. After hitting lead-off batter Mario Urdaneta to start the frame, Gray got a pop-out to short, but saw Brendan Collins take him out of the yard down the left-field line for a 2-0 Patriot lead. Enderson Velasquez followed with a single to left on the very next pitch before Gray got the second out of the inning on a fly to center. But consecutive singles from JTThomas and Sean Glabicky plated Velasquez and put the lead at 3-0. The Panthers went quietly in their half of the second, and the Pats added another in the top of the third. With one out, Urdaneta doubled off the left-field fence and with two out, Collins split the gap in leftcenter for another double to make it a 4-0 margin. But the bottom of the order got South Florida going in the bottom of the third. Sebring grad Evan Lewis started it by drawing a walk and moved to second on a Kevin Schubert single to center. Spencer Mumford then blooped one into shallow right for a single to load the bases. Lead-off man Carlos Matamoros then provided the pop with he launched one deep to right-center that cleared the fence for a gametying, grand-slam home run. After a scoreless top of the fourth, the Panthers took the lead on a bases loaded walk to Josh Townsend for a 5-4 edge. Avon Parks Lane Crosson then came on in relief and got the first two batters on pop-outs to Townsend at short and right fielder Mumford then made a diving catch to end the inning.

N ews-Sun file photo by TAYLOR TUBBS Senior co-captain Nick Perez and the Blue Streaks made up some ground in Fridays District Final, but will have to hit the road for their regional quarterfinal match on Wednesday. B y TAYLOR TUBBS News-Sun correspondentSEBRING An unfortunate loss for the Streaks against Auburndale in the District 133Achampionship Friday n ight still leaves light at the end of the tunnel. Despite a narrow 2-0 against their rival team, Sebring will still advance to the regional quarterfinals this coming week. For most of the season, the Streaks have been the number two seed in the district behind the Bloodhounds andh ad lost both regular-season m atches by three-goal margins. The Streaks were able to amp up their game play this time by holding off the Bloodhounds for a length of time and keeping the margin of loss to a minimal two goals. For the first half of the game, the Streaks held the B loodhounds scoreless. e played 67 minutes without them scoring, said senior captain Nick Perez. I thought we played a pretty solid game, but you win some and you lose some. District runner-up is still q uite an accomplishment. As a result of the seeding, the Streaks will travel to take on the number one seed from District 14, Merritt Island, on Wednesday. Auburndale plays at home against Lake Nona, the District 14 runner-up. I hope we get the chance to play them again in regiona ls, said Perez. Both of us know that Sebring is capable of winning. As the Streaks season draws to a close in the coming weeks, the players still have a positive outlook. I couldnt have been prouder of the guys on our team, said junior Austin Westergom. We showed a lot of heart. Blue Streaks settle for second Auburndale2Sebring0 We played 67 m inutes without t hem scoring.

Highlands County wast cordial to the LadyW ildcats this week as Lake Placid routed them on Thursday on the Dragons Senior Night, and S ebring did the same with Fridays 49-14 win. B ut the Lady Dragons f inished off their regular season on a slightly down note, falling to a strong Lake Wales squad. The Avon Park girls, though, finished their season strong as Johntavia Perry outscored George Jenkins by herself. The senior exploded for a game-high 31 points as the Lady Devils ran away from Jenkins by a 64-27 margin Thursday.

The Dragons were on the road at Okeechobee Friday and fell by a 71-63 mark. And after giving the m a ll they could handle a litt le more than a week prior, t he Blue Streaks fell b ehind early and could never recover in an 89-65 loss to visiting Winter Haven Thursday.

Highlands Hoops Panthers prevail in opener SFSC6CCF5 See SFSC, Page 3B Special to the News-SunSEBRING The Sebring Seventy and Over Softball League was out in full swing at the Highlands County Sports Complex last Tuesday and Thursday even though the weather was getting a little nippy. In action on Thursday, Jan. 24, the Silent Salesman played Royal Palms, hoping to avenge a loss earlier in the season. They banged out about 25 hits and played stellar defense, including three double plays. Royal Palms could not get anything going and fell behind 5-0 after three innings. The Salesman scored seven more times for a final score of 12-1. Leading batsmen for the Salesman were Norm Grubb at 4-for-5 with a double, while Bill Todd 3-for-5, including a double. Victor Rodriquez and Fred Moore each had a 4-for-4 day. Bob Goodman contributed 3-for-4 and four batters had two hits each. Victor Rodriquez pitched his best game of the season, limiting a good team to only one run. Highlands Independent Bank had a very successful day against Buttonwood Bay with a 23-12 victory. Some of the Banks bats were warmed up as Don Cunningham had a super day, going 4-for-6 at bats, producing a home run and two triples. Woody Woodward had 3for-5, including a double. Gene Phillips was 4-for-4 and Jim Quartier had 3-for-4. Each hitting 3-for-3 were Harry Bell and Ross Anderson. Russ Moody had 2-for-3 and Don Sheets was 3-for-5.

Aseries of batters going 3for-4 included Tony Christo, Tom Moose Morrissette, Fred Boyd, John Jeffrey, Earl Richardson and Fred Richardson. VFW4300 edged out a win over Andrews Allstate Insurance despite being on the wrong side of a triple play. The final score was VFW 12-10 with VFWon top. Dennis Burkholtz made a spectacular catch that ended the game. Having 3-for-5 hits was Ron Lewis. Winning pitcher John Kloet was 3-for-5, as well as Bob Roth, Chuck Fluharty and Spider McMinn. Andrews Allstate Insurance made some good plays but could not quite keep up with the VFWplayers. For Allstate, Galo Gonzalez had a double in his 3-for-4 times at bat. Jerry Kuffman was 3-for-3, including a triple. Rudy Pribble was 2-for-3 and Eddie Lindberg had 2for-4.

With one out, Velasquez reached on an error and moved to second on a Sean Plunkett single to center. Thomas then loaded the b ases by taking one for the t eam, but it looked like the threat might be averted whena bouncer to Schubert at first was thrown home for a fielders choice force out at the plate. But a base on balls to the next batter made it a 5-5 game. After former Blue Streak g ot through a bumpy but scoreless seventh, South Florida took the lead for good in the bottom of the inning. Townsend drew a lead-off walk and with one out and Joe Jusino at the plate, stole second. Jusino would be retired, but Jordan Rivera came through with a bouncer back through the middle to bring Townsend in. From there, Osha was aided in the eighth by a fine running catch from former Blue Streak teammate Lewis in center. And with two outs and one on, Justin Machado came int o record a 1-4-3 fielders c hoice to end the inning. The Panthers couldnt pad their lead in the bottom of the eighth, and things looked a bit tenuous in the ninth. Another Sebring grad, Josh Chavis, came on as the closer and retired the first two batt ers he faced on a strike out and fly to right. But an error on a slow roller to third kept it alive before Chavis induced a grounder to short for the final out. It was just a great day all around, head coach Rick Hitt said afterward. The weather was perfect and we played well. It was an honor and a blessing to get the win on Dr. Stephens day. Hes been the backbone of this college and has done so much in support of all the programsh ere on campus. We got the big swing in the fourth with the grand slam and our pitchers did their jobs, he continued. James (Gray made pitches, Crosson came in and got out of a big jam and Chavis did what Chavis d oes and thats get people out. Weve got a lot of games ahead of us, so its nice to get the first win right off the b at.

The games are sanctioned by the Florida Sports Charitable Foundation ands erve as a local qualifying event for the Florida State G ames. The Tanglewood Pickleball C lub is pleased to be hosting the Heartland Games for A ctive Adults for the 6th year. The Tanglewood club was founded in 2008 and currently has 136 active members. Tanglewood Pickleballers recently hosted the Winter Classic Pickleball Tournament and are pleased, once again, to have the opportunity to showcase the Tanglewood facilities and the ever improving skill levels of the members. To register, contact Lauren Redick, SFSC Community Education at 784-7388 or email CommunityEducation@south-f lorida.edu. The Registration deadline is February 22. Mens and ladiesdoubles w ill be played on Friday, March 15, with mixed doubles t aking to the courts on Saturday, March 16. T his is an age category event not a rated tournament where p layers compete against others of similar ability regardless of age. The age categories are: 5054, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74 and 75+. Pickleball is well suited to seniors with a court that is much smaller than a tennis court. The sport has really caught on and has spread like wildfire across the continent with facilities being set up both indoors and outdoors. Tanglewood players compete in several leagues here in the park. As well, there is a Tanglewood travelling team which recently played at Del Webb in Haines City where t hey earned 62 of a possible 67 points. The travelling team hosted Lake Ashton on Saturday, Jan 2 6, visit Riverbend in LaBelle on Monday, Jan 28, then compete against Highlands Ridge i n February. On March 3, Tanglewood will host the final shootout with the teams from Del Webb, Lake Ashton, Riverbend and Highlands Ridge. Heartland Games Pickleball Tournament Freshwater fishing just got easier in Florida www.grand-am.comSeveral teams that will compete in the Jan. 26-27 Rolex 24 At Daytona also are slated to participate in another classic American sports car racing event, the March 16 Mobil 1 Twelve Hours of Sebring Fueled by Fresh From Florida. Doing so, however, requires similar preparation but altogether separate cars. A mong organizations doing double duty is Extreme Speed Motorsports, whose No. 03 Tequila Patrn Ferrari 458 is expected to challenge for both Rolex 24 and Sebring GTvictories. The race week at Sebring is strung out over the whole week and we get more track time than we do at Daytona leading up to the race, said Robin Hill, ESMs director of operations. I would think we would run close to the same mileage at the two events even though the race length is double at Daytona, so spare part preparation is about the same. The biggest challenge is keeping the crew rested. The Rolex 24 begins in late afternoon, runs through the night and into the following afternoon. Sebring starts in daylight but ends at night. If the crew is worn out before the race then you cant expect them to perform at 100-percent during the race, said Hill. You really h ave to keep the guys focused and try to get them some rest between pit stops but as we stop about every 45 minutes its hard for them to get much rest. Keeping the whole team fed is another key because engines cant run without fuel and at 4 a.m. when its wet and cold they need something warm and nutritious to keep them going. While both ESMs GRAND-AM and American Le Mans Series entries are Ferrari 458s, there are subtle differences between the cars. The GRAND-AM car closely resembles the popular GT3 spec found in E urope and is a more costeffective version than the ALMS GT2 Ferrari. It carries many production-based pieces including some suspension parts. The GT2 race car has all purpose-built components sometimes lighter but more expensive. Drivetrains and gearboxes are essentially the same. The GT2 car carries a smaller air restrictor and makes less power than the G RAND-AM version. The body of the GT2 car a lso is wider, partially to accommodate wider tires. From a drivers perspective, the inside cockpit of the two 458s are quite similar with the same paddle shift system and many of the same driver ergonomics, said Scott Sharp, ESMs owner and co-driver in next weeks race with Ed Brown, Mike Hedlund and Johannes van O verbeek.

Continued from 1B 70s Softball puttin on the hits Associated PressNEW YORK Yankees g eneral manager Brian Cashman says its possible third baseman Alex Rodriguez could miss the entire season while recover-i ng from hip surgery. Cashman says theres no g uarantees in this stufthat Rodriguez will be able top lay this year. The 37-year-old Rodriguez had surgery on his left hip last week. The team said the rehabilit ation time was expected to be six months,which would sideline the star slugger until the All-Star break. On Friday,Cashman said it w as possible A-Rod could be out all year. eah,Cashman told WFAN radio. I think because (of nature of the surgery and the condition that hes trying to recover from,you know, there is that chance. I cant say its not possible that he wont be back,hes aid. The Yankees signed free agent Kevin Youkilis during the offseason to play third base while Rodriguez is out. C ashman said Rodriguez is doing everything in his p ower to put himself in the position to get back and beh ealthy and productive. Best case scenario,yeah he should be back,Cashman said. Worst case scenario,he wont be back,or there mightb e something in between." A 14-time All-Star, Rodriguez hit .272 with 18 home runs and 57 RBIs in 122 games last year. R odriguez had surgery on Jan. 16 to repair a torn labrum and reshape a bone to alleviate an impingement.

Some are eager to claim their tax refund right away, while others are simply followingt heir New Years resolution not to procrastinate until midnight,April 15. Let me add a nother good reason to file your taxes right away:tax refund identity fraud. T hats where someone uses your Social Security number (SSNbirth datea nd other private information to file a fraudulent income t ax return in your name and then pockets the resulting tax refund. Often,a victimsf irst clue is a letter from the IRS contesting their legitim ate tax return,saying one has already been processed under that name. It can take months and mounds of paperwork to unravel them ess. This scam has proliferated i n recent years thanks to a confluence of events: Theres a thriving black m arket in personal information stolen from healthcare f acilities,nursing homes, schools,insurance companies and other institutions that require an SSN asi dentification. The IRS is pressured to begin issuing refunds shortly after taxpayers start f iling returns in mid-January,even though employers and financial institutions aren't required t o submit withholding and income documentation until the end of March. Thus,dis-p arities often arent caught until months later. The growing popularity of e lectronic filing,where hardcopy documentation (like W2 and 1099 forms) isnt required. Many people receive r efunds via direct deposit and prepaid debit cards. C riminals open and close accounts using bogus addresses long before the theft has been detected. Thanks to severe budget c uts and chronic understaffing not to mention c onstantly playing whack-amole with thieves who dream up new schemes theI RS is hard-pressed to keep up. In one extreme example, t he agency issued more than $3.3 million in refunds for 2,137 tax returns filed to a single address. But all is not lost. The I RS has significantly beefed up its fraud-prevention efforts. In 2011,they intercepted nearly 262,000 fraudulent tax returns seekinga lmost $1.5 billion in refunds related to identity theft. And they now issue special personal identification numbers (PINsi mpacted taxpayers to protect their future tax filings. So what should you do if y ou've been victimized? Typically,the IRS will send you a notice that: More than one tax return for you was filed; You have a balance due, refund offset or have had collection actions takena gainst you for a year in which you didn't file a r eturn; or IRS records indicate you received wages from an employer you dont recognize. This could indicate thats omeone has used your personal information to get a j ob. If you receive such a notice,dont ignore it.C omplete an Identity Theft Affidavit (IRS Form 14039 a t www.irs.gov ) and return it with a copy of the notice to the address provided on the notice. If you did not receivea notice but believe you may b e at risk,the form contains separate submission instructions. The IRSs Identity Theft Protection website (w ww.irs.gov/uac/IdentityProtection) includes tons of helpful information,including ways to tell whether your identity may have beens tolen,how to report a breach and tips to avoid identity theft. A nd finally,file your tax return as early as possible to beat potential scammers tot he punch. If you owe money,you can always file y our return now and mail the payment by the April 15 deadline.

T he compans stock climbed $42.04 to $145.30 in afternoon trading as investors celebrated a fourth-quarter earnings report highlighted by accelerated growth in Netflixs Internet video s ervice. If the nearly 41 percent increase in Netflixs market value holds through the stock markets close,it will mark the stocks biggest single-day gain sinceN etflix went public more than a decade ago when investors were still shunning Internet businesses in the wake of the dot-com bust. The last time that Netflixs stock c ame close to soaring like this came in October 2002 when the shares rose nearly 36 percent in a single session. That gain,though,wasnt quite as impressive because Netflixs stock closed at a split-a djusted $3.55 that day.The meager valuation reflected widespread doubts about a quirky company trying to make money renting DVDs with a monthly subscription service.

The tiny,big eyed,feath-e red females are checking out the males with the best digs and the most stored food.T his may sound a bit shallow, but since this species mates for life and stays monoga-m ous,its an important decision for both owls to choose wisely. Y ou may have heard these tiny creatures during the e vening hours. The quavering trill that resembles a horses whinny may last for aboutt hree seconds at a time.Usually this indicates t hat the owls are defending their territory,however males will also sing when searching for a mate. The female trill is slightly higher in pitch.F emale owls,along with their young,use a rough,grating rasp to beg for food. Eastern screech owls only g row to be about seven to 10 inches tall. They generally have a wingspan of 18 to 24 inches. The females are larger than the males,but both havew ide-set feather tufts and bright yellow eyes.Coloration includes brownish or grayish hues and a lighter underside.They are well cam-o uflaged in wooded areas and if sitting on a branch are difficult to spot. Since they are predators and must hunt to survive,they areb uilt for attacking prey. Due to their small size,they need to rip their food into bite-sizedp ieces. Screech owls are equipped with razor sharp claws and a curved bill,whicht hey use to tear prey into portions small enough to s wallow. Hunting is done at night when the small raptor emergesf rom its nest in search of food.They are not finicky e aters and will dine on a variety of prey,such as songbirds, small rodents,rats,insects, reptiles,and small mammals. Hunting consists of sitting in at ree in wait for passing prey. When the target is spotted,the t iny owl pounces upon it from a distance of up to 10 feet off t he ground. Once the prey has been captured,it is usually taken back to the nest and torni nto pieces before being consumed. A fter dining,screech owls regurgitate the bones,fur,and feathers of their prey in an oval pellet,usually once or twice a day. One sure sign of as creech owl nest is the ground littered with these pellets beneath a tree. They prefer somewhat open landscapesw ith oak,pine and sycamore trees that are older and have existing cavities for nesting. Old and decaying trees are a vital part of the screech owlse xistence since they do not usually build their own nests. They use cavities left by other birds and animals. Once the female has laid her eggs,them ale takes care of her by bringing her food while nesting. Once the young are hatched,both parents care for the fledglings. The young stayw ith the parents for about eight to 10 weeks before going off on their own. C ool facts about the Eastern Screech Owl The eastern screech owl is f ound throughout the eastern states of America and S outhern Canada. The eastern screech owl is scientificallyc alledMegascops asio. It is the smallest species of o wls in North America. They normally have a clutch of about five young owls. The habitat consists of f orests,wooded swamps, cemeteries and suburban areas. Courtship occurs late January through mid-March,w ith the male advertising its presence and also potential nest sites. Eggs are laid beginning in early March; fledging begins midto late May. Male Eastern Screech Owls are smaller than females, and are more agile fliers and hunters. The female doesnt hunt while on the nest; shea nd the chicks depend on food brought them by the male. Though the male is smaller, his voice is deeper than the females. Smaller birds can help you find screech-owls during the day. Listen for a commotiono f Blue Jays,chickadees,and titmice they may be mobbing a screech-owl (or otherr aptor),swooping around it with noisy calls. This can be e nough of a nuisance to make the owl move on,and it alerts other birds to the predatorsp resence and teaches younger members of the flock about t he danger. Nestling Screech owls fight fiercely among themselves for food,and sometimes even kill and eat their smallests ibling. Eastern Screech Owls of the suburbs may fledge more young than their rural counter-p arts,probably because their predators are scarcer in the suburbs. At fledging,the young first hop to the ground or near-b y branches,using feet and fluttering wings to climb laboriously back to safety. Young gain flight and hunting skills slowly; gradually,as they oung gain skill,they begin to roost and hunt apart from their parents and siblings. This little owl is a generalist,with unfussy eating andn esting habits,and it adjusts well to the presence of humans. In fact,suburbanb irds often survive better than their rural kin,as suburbs provide more prey,milder cli-m ates,and fewer predators. Listen in wooded areas at n ight for the trills and whinnies of this vocal owl. Your best chance of seeing anE astern Screech Owl may be to listen for the excited voices o f songbirds mobbing an owl they have found. You can also look closely at tree cavities and nest boxes; especially on cold sunny days,you may seet he owl sunning sleepily in the entrance. Eastern screech owls must be wise in their choices News From T he W atershed Corine Burgess C ourtesy photo Eastern Screech Owlsa regeneralists, with unfussy eating and nesting habits, a nd they adjust well to the presence of humans.

Into his basement-l evel office on Park Avenue walked a young man wearing a light weather-resistant jacket with a lightweight checkered shirt underneath. He was striking looking diamond in the rough was the phrase that came to mind,Lord writes in his just-published memoir. It was Jack Kerouac,and w rapped inside a newspaper was the manuscript for what b ecame On the Road. Lord is now 92 years old and still keeps regular hours,a t the bright,downtown offices of Sterling Lord L iteristic Inc. His clients have ranged from Ken Kesey to the creators of the Berenstain Bears. He has lunched with Jackie Kennedy,played tennis withK atherine Graham and had the will to say no to Lyndon Johnson when the president was seeking help to get a book deal. H is memoir is called Lord of Publishingand his peers see nothing out of line about the title. His name means respect,gentleman agent,a class act,according to fellow agent Jane Dystel. This is a guy who has been around a very long time, through many iterations of our business,which is con-s tantly changing,and has survived,says Dystel,whose a gencs clients range from Starbucks CEO Howard Schulz to best-selling crimew riter John Locke. He does it with real determination and s kill,in a very low-key style, but determined. When Lord met Kerouac, the young Beat already had published a novel,The Town and the City.But hew as having a harder time with his second book,starti ng with the way he had written it. On the Roadwas born on a 120-foot scroll thath e was known to unfurl on a publishers floor. Not all d ared to read it,but Lord did and found something fresh and dynamic,a jolt to the growing conformity of the times. So he took the book on and s uffered the rejections, including one from a Knopf editor who thought On the Roadwas not saleableor well-made.Kerouac wasr eady to give up,but not Lord. By the mid-1950s,he had sold excerpts to The Paris Review and New World Writing. Viking Press agreedt o publish the novel,for an advance of $1,000. On the Roadwas released in 1957, The New York Times raved and Kerouac became a hero for a generation of adventur-e rs. Lord writes in his book t hat Kerouac was essentially a shy man who didnt know how to handle the attention.H is drinking worsened Kerouac died in 1969 when h e was just 47. Lord had tried to help him,but realized that he was a literary agent and not a life agent.And he had rarely seen the authors darker side,reasoning that he wasa parental figure for whom Kerouac remained on his best behavior. I looked on him as a true craftsman,a man who kneww hat he wanted to do,Lord says. The business remains stimulating for Lord,an improbably fit-looking man whosea gency handles books by Rachel Maddow,David Mitchell and many others. He sees a strong future for ebooks and has been working with the digital publisherO pen Road Integrated Media to make sure older works by J immy Breslin,the late Howard Fast and others are available in electronic for-m at. He also turned to Open Road for an even more chall enging project:His own book. A memoir had long seemed a natural and in 1999 he signed with PublicAffairs to write one,its working titlet he more businesslike AgentsFees.But after years of trying,with a ghost writer on hand,he and PublicAffairs each were dis-s atisfied. Lord made two critical decisions:He would write the book himself and he would release it through Open Road,whose co-f ounder is former HarperCollins CEO Jane Friedman. He was always fair, always very author-centric, which suited me fine,saysF riedman. Wve become a lot closer in recent years, t alking regularly about the older authors he wanted to bring to Open Road and thena bout his own book. Interviewed recently at his o ffice,Lord credits his endurance to moderate living,good genes and decades of competitive tennis. BOOKS A memoir by Kerouacs agent, Sterling Lord

I dont know,Hoffman said. The 75-year-old Hoffman went behind the camera for Quartet,starring MaggieS mith,Tom Courtenay,Billy Connolly and Pauline Collins as aging British opera divas at a retirement home for musicians who put aside past differences for a reunion concert. Quartet,which premiered at last Septembers Toronto International Film Festival,opened in a handful of theaters Jan. 11 and expands to wider release Friday. Hoffman always wanted to direct,optioning stories, working on scripts,developing projects. He even started out to direct the 1978 ex-convict drama Straight Time, in which he also was starring. Hoffman cast the film, worked on the script with several writers and said he ven got myself secreted into San Quentin which is another story in a convicts outfit for about five hours before I got found out. Clearly,it was Hoffmas passion project,but as he began watching dailies of the footage he had shot,he lost confidence and fired myselfas director. Hoffman turned to old friend Ulu Grosbard,who had directed him in Who Is Harry Kellerman and Why Is He Saying Those Terrible Things About Me?,to finish Straight Time,but it wound up being an acrimonious shoot as Hoffman continued to try to co-direct and their friendship chilled. Between that one and now,I dont know. I worked on stuff,ve developed stuff and talked myself out of it for whatever reason,Hoffman said in an interview at the Toronto festival.

C M Y K By LYNN ELBER A P Entertainment WriterL OS ANGELES Do Meryl Streep,Anne Hathaway and Helen Mirren really need a category just for women a singular kind ofa ffirmative action to snare one of Hollywoods favorite accessories,an Oscar,Emmy or Screen Actors Guild trophy? I n a society tilting steadily toward gender neutrality,the separate-but-equal awards that divide actors into one camp and actresses into another have the whiff of am oldy anachronism. True,the Association for W omen in Science gives honors to encourage female success in male-dominatedf ields. But to mark enduring achievements,would its m embers ever yearn for a Womens Nobel Prize in physics? In contests of intellect or artistry,should gender everm atter? s not like its upper b ody strength,Gloria Steinem dryly observed of the requirements of acting. T he separate labeling of male and female performers i s losing favor in the industry. Actresses often swat the distinction away by callingt hemselves actors,standing shoulder to shoulder with their male counterparts. U sherettes are long gone from movie theater lobbies, a fter all. And defense officials said Wednesday the Pentagon will be lifting its ban on women in combat. SAG,which holds its a wards ceremony Sunday, edged toward neutrality with its trophy dubbed the Actor, although the guild gives separate honors to best performance by a male actor and by a f emale actor. That cracks the door open, but only slightly. Fling itw ide so that Daniel DayLewismajestic performance in Lincolnand Jessica C hastains steely turn in Zero Dark Thirtyvie for t he grand prize! Thats a great idea,said Mark Andrews,writer-director of the animated film Brave.At the end of thed ay,were all storytellers, and I dont think when were defining a character that the gender is the major defining factor. In all other awards-eligible f ields,including directing, writing or cinematography, everyone is going for it,m ale and female alike, Andrews said. That may be progress in t heory for performers but not in practice,according to S ally Field,a SAG and Oscar best supporting actress nominee for Lincoln. If you do that you wont see any actresses up there (ons tage) at all,she said. The percentage of roles is so weighted toward actors. Thats the way its always been. Exactly,concurred Naomi Watts,The Impossiblebest actress SAG and Academy Award nominee. Theres so much competit ion in life and I do think we are different,she said. Yes, we should be able to have the same things as much as possible ... (but) lifes a battlea lready and theres so many great roles written for men. Women are definitely at a disadvantage when it comes to volume. R apper Nicki Minaj,whos considering launching an acting career,has a pragmatict ake on the issue. ou see all those divas in the audience looking so pret-t y,and they all want to beat each other out,she said. Its entertainment. Hathaway,in the running for SAG and Oscar support-i ng actress honors for Les Miserables,considers the g ender split an awesome question worthy of an awesome debate. Can I conceive of a world where performance becomesa genderless concept? Absolutely. Do I think its g oing to happen anytime soon? No,she said. As Fields pointed out,the bedrock challenge is that women get fewer substantive roles than men. Ironically, thats obscured by the artifi-c ial parity on stage each year at awards shows. Five women compete,five men compete, two winners are crowned. So whats the problem? A q uick numbers check makes it clear:Females comprised about a third of the characters in the 100 top-grossing films in 2011,according to theC enter for the Study of Women in Television and Film at San Diego StateU niversity. This,despite the fact women make up slightly more than half of the U.S. population and,according tot he centers previous research,the finding isnt an anomaly. In this context,feminist leader Steinem sees legiti-m ate reason to retain separate acting awards. When two unequal groups are combined its the less-powerful one that loses,she said,as when 20th-c entury U.S. school desegregation lead to mass layoffs of black principals and adminis-t rators. www.newssun.comN ews-SunS unday, January 27, 2013Page 11B B IG GREEN LAWN MAINTENANCE; 5.542"; 3"; Black; 1/6,13,20,27; 00026437 S TANLEY STEEMER CARPET; 3.639"; 3"; Black; 1/27/13; 00026988 DUMMY 2013; 11.25"; 10.5"; Black; heartland idol; 00026992 ARTS& ENTERTAINMENT Are Hollywood awards by gender out of touch?

Millepied,35,is a former p rincipal dancer with the New York City Ballet who left in 2011 to create his own dance company in Los Angeles,L.A. DanceP roject.

Portman won the best actress Academy Award for her performance in them ovie. Millepied is known for his innovative work outside classical ballet,and his latest project in Los Angelesh as its roots in contemporary dance. In the ballet w orld,the appointment of Millepied who has no formal ties to the ParisO pera Ballet is considered something of a coup. I will keep the things that seem strong and solid and I have the chance to r ethink certain other things,Millepied told the Figaro newspaper in an interview Thursday.

By MARK KENNEDY AP Drama WriterN EW YORK Serious theater fans have a reason to s uddenly freak out:Ian McKellen and PatrickS tewart will team up on Broadway this fall in two of the most iconic plays of the 20th century. Producers announced T hursday that Stewart and McKellen will star in Harold Pinters No Mans Land and Samuel Becketts aiting for Godotwhichw ill play in repertoire under the direction of Sean Mathias. The Broadway theater,performance dates,the two supporting actors and the schedule of performances will be announced later. Stewart and McKellen starred in a production of aiting for GodotinL ondons West End in 2009. Prior to Broadway,thell t ackle No Mans Landin an as-yet-unspecified out-of-t own tryout this summer. Mathias told The Associated Press all three men struggled to make aiting for Godotas hon-e st and realistic as possible an approach thell likely replicate with Pinters play. What we tried to do,with so much effort,was make itr eal. Make them human beings,compassionate, funny,flawed and vulnerable and cocky all the things human beings are,Mathias said. We never wanted to make it esoteric. Im sure this is how we will approach the Pinter as well. Stewart,72,and McKellen, 73,first worked together in1 977 in Tom Stoppards Every Good Boy Deserves F avour.Theyve also starred in the X-Menmovie fran-c hise as Professor Xavier and Magneto. Stewart will play Vladimir in Waiting for Godotand Hirst in No Mans Land;M cKellen will play Estragon in Waiting for Godotand Spooner in No Mans Land. My main feeling is its l ovely to be back with friends and it will be lovely to be back in New York,said McKellen,who is doing a sitcom in England and next goes to Middle Earth to film scenes for The Hobbitfranchise. But Ive got an awful lot to do in the meantime. McKellen, Stewart head to Broadway Paris Opera Ballet names Millepied of Black Swan

C M Y K Dear Abby: My fiances friend Artand his wife, Julie,just had a baby. While Julie was pregnant she asked my fiance and me to be godparents. Although we could nota ttend her baby shower due to a previous commitment, we contributed several gifts as well as a quilt I had made. A few weeks later,Julie p osted on her social networking site that she was t hankful for her babys godparents and named an entirely different couple n ot us. I am offended. If she had discussed her reas on for the change with me,I would have understood. But there was no dialogue,and to this day I have never received som uch as a thank-you for our shower presents. I would like to distance myself from Julie,but without damaging the rela-t ionship between Art and my fiance,who thinks I am o verreacting and should let it go. What are your thoughts? Not a G odmother Dear Not a Godmother: Julie may h ave been upset that you and your fiance didnt a ttend the baby shower,or she may have spoken too quickly when she asked you to be godparents and didnt have the courage tos ay so. Whether you can let this go only you can decide, but I do think that before you make up your mind, you should have a chat with her and clear the air i f only because your fiance and her husband are such g ood friends. Dear Abby: My husbands younger sister, Cindy,is mentally ill.S he has caused tremendous problems in the family. She has been arrested too many times to remember and is now on five yearsp robation for injury to a child. My in-laws continue making excuses for her and are the worst enablers I have ever known. My husband once urged his dad to put Cindy into a group home or program that will take care of her because his parents are getting up in years. They refuse because it would mean thed have to have Cindy officially committed,and they think there is still some magic doctor out there who will fix her. Can my husband do anything as a last effort befores omething happens to one of his parents,or she winds up in jail? Sad in Texas Dear Sad: Your husband should try to convince hisp arents to get some family counseling. It might help them accept that their daughter needs more help than they are equipped to give her. An outside,objec-t ive person should weigh in so that Cindy can get the p rofessional help she so obviously needs. If she is physically,psyc hologically or emotionally abusing her parents,Adult P rotective Services can step in to be sure they are protected. When your inlaws pass away,if your sister-in-law becomes a dan-g er to herself or those around her,a family memb er can request a commitment and psychological evaluation. Dear Abby: A number o f years ago,when two of my sons got married,I paid for two lovely rehearsald inners among other wedding costs. Both marriages ended in divorce. N ow they are both engaged again and plann ing weddings for next summer. My question is, how many rehearsal dinners do I have to pay for? And how many other wed-d ing expenses am I expected to pay for the second time around? Mother of Grooms in Virginia Dear Mother of Grooms: From now on,you do not have to pay for anything.T he expenses should be paid for by your sons and t heir brides-to-be,especially if their fiancees have also been married previously.

Solution on page 6B Godparents-to-be discover another couple in the wings A few m onths ago, my husband Ken and I decided to apply for passports even though we presently dont have travel plans. Completing the application,we brought our original birth certificates to the Post Office as required; though it unnerved me to put this document in the mail. Things got complicated causing delays and extra expense when we discovered we needed new state-issued birth certificates.A few weeks later,Ken had his necessary documents. After receiving my new birth certificate,I sent it certified mail to the Passport Center in their specially stamped envelope,but my return receipt never came back. Phone calls and inquiries did not help to solve the mystery. My worst fear had been realized. My birth certificate was lost. I asked the Lord who sees to please unearth it wherever it might be and thanked him in advance. The tension released and I went about my day. One question nibbled at my peace Is there something I should be doing to thwart fraudulent activity? Then the Lord sent a new acquaintance into my path. She shared about Gods amazing work in her life. I asked her to pray about my situation. She inquired,Have you p rayed about it?es,I replied. Have you thanked God for what hes doing?I said yes. She replied,Then its taken care of. I mentioned the one question chipping away at my peace. But she simply took hold of my arms and looked me in the eyes and repeated, s taken care of. I knew God had spoken through her over me. The concern left my mind. Later that day,Ken brought the mail in. Jan,you have a certified! It was the one Id sent to the Passport Center returned as undeliverable. None of that made sense,of course. But God had acted and,in the process,had given me a new passport to peace. With my documents now in hand,I cant stop praising God for his miraculous intervention. In Psalm 37:5 it says, Commit your way to the Lord,trust also in Him,and He shall bring it to pass. And,in Philippians 4:6 & 7, we are told not to be anxious, to bring everything to God in prayer,with thanksgiving, and the peace of God,which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. My passport to peace came when I gave my problem to God,thanked him for his intervention,and trusted him knowing,s taken care of. Selah Passport to peace Pause And Consider Jan Merop Metro News ServiceAries (March 21-April 20) Aries,you have been living life in the fast lane,but this week you may need to apply the brakes.
