Members of the Highlands County Concert Band spent their morning entertaining the 300 kindergartners with music and education. Students sat anxiously in the KLC cafeteria as the seven members talked about their respective instruments and taught the kids a few interesting facts about each of them. The students were eager to know about the other instruments set up in front of the musicians. Jim Wells played the flute and piccolo for the students, Fran Leppanen lead the woodwinds with the clarinet and Gary Scott won the students over with his alto saxophone. Following the woodwinds, it was the brass familys turn. Bob Williams taught the kids how to use the trumpet.

Center Ave. in downtown Sebring has finally ended after three years of court disputes. The issue began in 2009, when the county decided to widen Center Avenue and construct a sidewalk on the south end of the road. Property owner GingerleeM itchelllindos wall was determined to be a right-of-way hazard at that time. M itchelllindo was contacted about the encroachment of the wall, but refused to remove it or allow the county to replace it with a smaller wall on her property. The City of Sebring filed suit against M itchelllindo in November of 2009 after a formal demand was sent to her for City wins war over the wall Property owner vows to keep fighting even after wall is torn down News-Sun file photo Gingerlee Mitchelllendo holds a picture of what the area in front of the wall that borders her property on Center Avenue in Sebring looked like before the intersection was modified by the county.

For the past 10 years Smith and her cat have spent the winterm onths in Sebring. By CHRISTOPHER TUFFLEY christopher.tuffley@newssun.comSEBRING Ina Smith swept the mat lying outside the door to her compact recreational van. Her cat, Louise, slept inside. Smith is a regular winter resident of Sebring. For 10 years she has repeatedly returned to the Highlands Wheels Estates when she isnt exploring New Mexico or South Dakota or going to the races in Daytona. I like to travel, she said, and as long as I have my health I will. There are many people like Smith, people who live on wheels, always eager to drive around the next curve; always delighted to meet up with old friends. The individuals, couples, and families who live in recreational vehicles or trailers exist in a parallel universe. RVers have an identity, outlook, and language uniquely their own. It is one reason the RVpark and campground industry is weathering these difficult times. The worst is over, said Robert Cornwell, spokesman for the Florida Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds. With the economy and political situation the way they are things are unstable, but better than two years ago, much more positive. Of course, everybody wishes things were better, but given the economy, were doing better than many other industries. Linda Ekberg, at Holiday Oaks old Plantation Avenue, agreed. Last year we had a waiting list, Campgrounds have weathered economic storm and are seeing an upturn See RV, page 3A


C M Y K Almost every American s ports fan has heard of Hickory, Ind., which was immortalized in the 1986f ilm Hoosiers. Yet many who recite the movies u nforgettable lines think Hickory actually exists. It doesnt, although some reallife towns come close. The northern Indiana town o f Hamlet is about 100 miles from New Richmond, where m ost of Hoosiers was filmed. Like the fictional community that HickoryH igh unites on its way to an improbable mens basketball s tate championship, Hamlet is tiny, with just 300 households full of fathers and sons w ho love Indiana sports. Spc. Robert Tauteris III just returned to the Hoosier State from Afghanistan, where he was serving witht he 713th Engineer Company of the Indiana National Guard. Instead of a welcome home celebration, though, the 22-year-old soldier cameb ack to the United States for a Jan. 8 dignified transfer c eremony. The soldier escorted the f lag-draped casket carrying his father, Spc. Robert Tauteris Jr., home from Afghanistan. On Jan. 6, alongside Staff Sgt. JonathanM etzger, 32, Spc. Christopher Patterson, 20, and Spc. Brian Leonhardt, 21, the elder Tauteris, 44, was killed by an improvisede xplosive device planted in the volatile Kandahar Province, according to the Pentagon. Surrounded by his family, the grieving son spoke to reporters on Jan. 11. Quotes from the news conference are provided by WSBT-TV reporter Clifton French, an Iraq war veteran. It was an honor being able to escort my father and the other fallen soldiers home from Afghanistan, Tauteris said. Its something Ill never forget, and Im more honored to do that than I have been to do many things in my life. Long before the father and son served together in Afghanistan, the younger R obert and his brother, Matthew, looked up to their dad. He stood up as our boy scout leader from the time w e were very young to being too old to be in boy scouts, the soldier said. G en. Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the Joints Chiefs of Staff, stood and saluted in the darkness of Delawares Dover Air ForceB ase as fellow troops carried each flag-draped casket onto the soil of the nation they died for. Maj. Gen. Martin Umbarger, adjutant generalo f the Indiana National Guard, called on Americans t o recognize the enormous sacrifices still being made inA fghanistan. e have no more solemn obligation than rendering the proper respect, honor, and tribute to these faithful war-r iors and to provide the fullest possible support to their families during this difficult time, Maj. Gen. Umbarger said. T auteris reminded reporters that while his dad was a dedicated soldier after enlisting at age 40, he was a father, first and foremost. I cant stress enough how much he cared about me and my brother, the soldier said. It was the most important thing to him; it was like his meaning in life was to be a father Americas post-9/11 conflicts have touched many fathers and sons. In May 2010, Chief Warrant Officer Michael McHugh boarded a plane in Iraq, where he was deployed, to meet the flagdraped casket of his father, Col. John McHugh, 46, who had been killed alongside four fellow troops in Afghanistan. J ust days after Col. McHughs death, the Kansas City Royals honored thef allen hero by asking his grieving son to throw out t he first pitch before a home game. I lost my best friend, Chief Warrant Officer McHugh wrote to theU nknown Soldiers in 2010. The first pitch at Kauffman S tadium was such an honor, and were grateful to the Royals for doing that for ourf amily Like Michael McHugh, R obert Tauteris III is an American soldier but also a son who lost his dad. He is a hero, Spc. Tauteris III said of his father. I think what made him who he is ... is how much he cared about hisc hildren and his family One of the most touching moments in Hoosiers comes when Hickorys assistant coach, played by DennisH opper, is thrust into leading the team after the head c oach, played by Gene Hackman, is ejected. Aftert he play he drew up wins the game in dramatic fashion, he is approached by a player who is also his son. ou did good, pop, he s aid. You did real good.

C M Y K this year we had late openings, she said.

Were a little down. Im h oping it snows tons and tons of it. Cornwell said two years a go the industry was hurting. Dealers selling new RVs were closing, as were some RVparks. The recession caused the p lunge in business. Now, changing technology winnows what is left. With GPS systems, cell phones, iPads, cable andc omputers, customers often make reservations on the r oad, rather than in advance. lot of people are calli ng at the last minute, said Pam Jessup of Bonnet Lake Camp Grounds. Technology has changed the way parks do businesst oo. good 20 percent of our reservations are made online now, said Sue Lewis, who with her husband Jim, man-a ges Highlands Wheel Estates. She added, however, a bigger change was the parks website and advertising online. Another shift is the Baby Boomers who are going on the road. Cornwell said because of the economy, the big rise in numbers the industry expected did not materialize, but things would probably equal out in the end. When these younger retirees arrive at a park, however, they expect Wi-Fi and a cable television hookup at a minimum. Parks are having to keep up with the times, Cornwell said. Those that have chosen a resort destination model are typically doing the best, he added. Guests are looking for parks with swimming pools, top-notch facilities and opportunities for day trips. In this regard, he said, Sebring has a lot to offer, with Disney and Universal a n easy drive away. Now that Lego Lands open, its getting better and better and better Sue Lewis strongly a greed.

Its how we sell our park, Try S ebring, she said. The industry, said Cornwell, while well posit ioned, is still working its way back. At the height of the recession, sales of RVs fell drastically. Banks werent mak-i ng loans for houses, they sure werent loaning money for RVs, he said. What RVs and trailers did sell were used.

RV park business evolving to keep up with technology Associated PressN CHARLESTON, S.C. Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Thursday dropped out of the race for the Republican presiden-t ial nomination and endorsed Newt Gingrich, adding a fresh layer of unpredictability to the campaign two days before the South Carolina pri-m ary. Newt is not perfect, b ut who among us is? Perry said. He called the former House speaker a conservative visionary best suited to replace B arack Obama. While the ultimate impact of Perrys decision is unclear, it reduced the number of conservativec hallengers to Mitt Romney. The decision a lso reinforced the perception that Gingrich is the candidate on the movei n the final hours of the South Carolina campaign, a nd that the front-running Romney is struggling to hold onto his lead. P erry had scarcely finished speaking when Gingrich issued a statem ent welcoming the endorsement. I ask the s upporters of Governor Perry to look at my record of balancing the budget, cutting spending, reforming welfare, and enactingp ro-growth policies to create millions of new jobs and humbly ask for their vote, Gingrich said. Romney reacted by praising Perry for running a campaign based uponl ove of country and conservative principles and s aying he has earned a place of prominence as a leader in our party Perrys exit marked the end of a campaign thatb egan with soaring expectations, but quickly faded. He shot to the head of the public opinion polls when he announced his candida-c y last summer, but a string of poor debate performances soon led to a decline in support. His defining moment came at one debate when he unaccountably could not recall the third of three federal agencies he has promised to abolish. He joked about it afterward, but never recovered from the fumble. Romney, the former Massachusetts governor considered the more moderate candidate in the race, has benefited thus far from having several conservative challengers competing for the same segment of voters. New polls show Romney leading in South Carolina but Gingrich gaining steam heading into Saturdays contest ina state where conservatives hold great sway in choosing the nominee. Perrys decision to endorse Gingrich does not necessarily mean conservatives will rally behind the former House speaker. Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, a champion of the anti-abortion issue, is still in the race and over the weekend was endorsed by a group of evangelical leaders. And theres no guarantee that the Texas donors who fueled Perrys bid will shift to Gingrich, even if the governor asks them to. Romney has been working to court them in recent weeks. Perry drops out of the race News-Sun photo by KATARASIMMONS In addition to the RV she lives in, Ina Smith brings her motorcycle, a bicycle, and a mini-van to keep her busy during her winter stay. Smith also uses a laptop computer, GPS and a cellphone while shes on the road.

But the reason for thev ote is not important, the ability to do so is what matters. S everal volunteers will man the polls to help with the voting process and those folks deserve a thank you whent hey check off your name and look at your drivers license. They are protecti ng freedom, something everyone has to constantly defend. Even if you just do it with a vote. Making your mark, even in this primary, means that you are not only exer-c ising your constitutional rights, but it means that you are validating the sacrif ice some made to ensure suffrage, the right that allows you to participate in our republic. E arly voting is not only convenient, its handy. You can slip down to one of t he three locations no matter where you work in Highlands County. Its quick with no lines for most of the day, and its easy with just one choice out of nine to select. Ironically, because of the bodyp olitic, this primary comes just after the birthday of an American who dedicated h is life to insure that everyone, regardless of race, had an equal opportunity to vote. T he Voting Rights Act of 1965 is still in effect, but fortunately just five count ies in Florida are required to get preclearance before making changes to how voters pull the lever. The Act eliminated literacy tests, grandfathering and other qualificationsd esigned to limit a section of our country from participating in the voting p rocess. Not just blacks, but illiterate whites and Latinos suffered from discriminatory voting laws. I t stands to show us what can happen to the right to vote if some are allowed t o tarnish freedom with regulation. In Collier, Hardee, Hendry, H illsborough and Monroe counties, prec learance from the United States Department of Justice has to be obtained before any changes to the voting system can take place. Those counties started early voting on Jan. 5. Modern life is busy, but we are lucky to have the opportunity to make a difference by voting early. Take advantage of that time saver. When you enter that booth, you will be validating the sacrifices made in S yria and Egypt in 2010. Validating the r ight for assembly and free speech. V alidating the call to all to select the n ext leader in this country. No matter who wins. B ut you cannot validate those efforts i f you do not enter the booth. There will be more opportunities to vote in the upcoming year, but set an example for your children, your neighbors, your friends and co-workers. If you wish to continue to have the equal right to vote, you must exercise an equal duty. V ote. And do it early. Equal rights means equal duty, so vote early Citizens should take advantage of the early voting opportunities, especially here in Highlands County. W ho would have guessed wed have a national conversation about urinating on corpses? And worse yet to have people with a mediam egaphone attempting to d efend it. The video of four marines desecrating ther emains of a Taliban fighter in A fghanistan surfaced on YouTube last week. The first thing worth noti ng is this treatment of war dead is absolutely against the Geneva Convention. The second thing is we threw out the Geneva Conventionw hen we invaded Afghanistan. Which leads me to the following conclusion: Its time to end this war. Itst ime to leave. President Dwight E isenhower, in his 1963 memoir, noted that inV ietnam, the mass of the population supported the enemy. This was an insurmountable obstacle (at the time) for the French and ano minous foreshadowing for a full-scale American conflict to come. Awar the U.S. would engage in for 20 years through five presi-d ents and an estimated 200,000 dead or wounded American soldiers. Yet that is where we are with Afghanistan: The population is not on our side. I was recently on a television program with Michael Hastings, a reporter at Rolling Stone on Afghanistan. He said some of the Afghans still think they are fighting the Soviets (a nine year war which ended in 1989). That is the best indication this war, for us, is unwinnable: We dont really know who were fighting there and they dont really know who theyre fighting there. Wed actually have to educate people as to who it is they are trying to kill first...in order to win their hearts and minds. Weve been in a country called the graveyard of empires for a decade. Last year General David Petraeus announced his COIN or counterinsurgency strategy, integral in Iraq, would be implemented in Afghanistan too. The pillars of a COIN strategy are security, political and economic. Or as Petraeus wrote in the field manual Success in COIN operations requires establishing a legitimate government supported by the people. Basically, nation buildi ng. We have to build a nation that w ill be stable, legitimate AND support the U.S. How does that happen? Moret ime; more soldiers; more m oney. Just one decade is not enough tom ake little progress in a country whose l ast successful conqueror was the Mongols...roughly 800 years ago. And whose t ype of government historically can be best described as tribal. Front-runner for the Republican nomination MittR omney said in his New Hampshire primary victory speech, He (Obama t see the need for overwhelming American militarys uperiority. I will insist on a military so powerful no one w ould think of challenging it. W e have the largest navy in the world (twice as big as the second largest) and were in a 10-year-long struggle in a landlockedc ountry. This is a Romney let them eat cake moment. Oh were not winning with the biggest military in the histo-r y of the planet? The solution is to make it bigger! Enough. Eisenhower, the last five-star general to be President of the United States, warned Americans upon his leaving office of the military industrial complex. Part of this complex is the insistence of listening to the commanders on the ground. The commanders still insist we can win if we just try harder, stay long and commit more troops. But this is in their nature. Asking commanders on the ground if we should continue with a war is like asking a football coach if we should continue to have football games. Of course they say yes, theyre professionals and this is their livelihood. Their opinion should be treated as such. In 2008, Obama was the recipient of more donations (6:1 overseas than his opponent, former POW, John McCain. It was specifically because then-Senator Obama spoke of ending the Iraq War. Iraq is over.

Opinions expressed in letters or columns are solely the opinion of that author and not necessarily the opinion of the staff or editors of the News-Sun EDITORIALPAGEPOLICY Much like one of his predecessors, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Barack Obama has all but declared war on the United States Supreme Court. It will be remembered that in 1937 FDR was angry over the high courts refusal to put a stamp of approval on much of his New Deal agenda, and sought to bend the court to his will by adding new members to the existing court membership. Contemptuously calling the courts members a collection of nine old men, FDR sought to pack the high court with up to six additional members more likely to do his bidding. The proposal lost steam and, thankfully, failed. Mr. Obama has not gone quite that far yet. But hes getting close. Like most U.S. presidents who chafe under the high courts authority to rule on the constitutionality of aspects of their agendas, Obama is unhappy with the courts failure to recognize the divinity of his proposals, if not that of his personhood. Too bad. As we are often reminded, Into each life some rain must fall. Thanks to the high court, Mr. Obama has been much in need of an umbrella of late. The presidents Equal Employment Opportunity Commission was correctly overruled in a case involving religious freedom. The court clearly stated that the First Amendment protects churches in their decisions regarding workers with religious duties, a ministerial exception to employment-discrimination laws. This exception had already been supported by lower courts and many states. Tragically for Mr. Obama and his vastly elevated ego, choirs of angels singing of the glories of his agenda cannot be heard. Despite the frantic efforts of his captive media to tune them in, the president remains a mere mortal, subject to all the slings and arrows that always target any holder of high office. Soon the issue before the court will be Mr. Obamas health care program, rammed through Congress despite the widespread opinion that it was, and remains, nothing short of an opening to national socialized medicine. Aruling is expected by early July. The question is whether the Constitutions Commerce Clause can be stretched beyond recognition to reach into everyones pocketbook with the Obamacare mandate. We pray that the Supreme Court will put the question to rest with an emphatic rejection. The notorious failings of Britains socialized medicine have not failed to diminish the hopes and plans of our own fans of socialized everything of a government so big and so powerful that nothing can resist its meddlesome reach. That is a lesson Barack Hussein Obama has yet to learn. If he doesnt learn his lesson by July, he will certainly learn it in November.

C M Y K Associated PressWASHINGTON Dredging up a past that Newt Gingrich has worked hard to bury, the GOPpresidential candidates second ex-wife says Gingrich asked for an open marriage in which he could have both a wife and a mistress. In an interview with ABC NewsNightline scheduled to air Thursday night, Marianne Gingrich said she refused to go along with the idea that she share her husband with Callista Bisek, who would later become his third wife. The explosive interview was airing just two days before the presidential primary in South Carolina, a state with a strong Christian conservative bent, and as Gingrich tries to present himself as the strongest alternative to GOPfrontrunner Mitt Romney. In excerpts of the interview released ahead the ABC broadcast, Marianne Gingrich said Gingrich conducted his affair with Callista in my bedroom in our apartment in Washington. He always called me at night and always ended with I love you,she said. ell, she was listening. Marianne Gingrich, who was Gingrichs second wife, said Gingrich told her Callista doesnt care what I do. He was asking to have an open marriage and I refused, she said. That is not a marriage. She also said Gingrich moved to divorce her just months after she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. He also was advised by the doctor when I was sitting there that I was not to be under stress, she said. He knew. Gingrich, interviewed Thursday on NBCs oday show, was asked about his ex-wifes interview and declined to speculate on how it would affect his campaign. He said he wouldnt say anything bad about his exwife and that he preferred not to address his personal life in detailed fashion.

City attorney Bob Swaine r evealed the ongoing battle w ith the Mitchelllindo suit T uesday during the city council meeting. After numerous appellate f ilings both in the Second District Court of Appeals and t he Florida Supreme Court level, all of which were denied. The issue has been b rought to you all for your consideration on whether to move forward with the r emoval of the wall, Swaine said. T he district court informed t he city that they could move forward with the removal of t he wall, according to Swaine. C ouncilman John Griffin made a motion that the city seek bids to restore the right of way by proceeding with the removal of the wall as well as r e-sod the property and restoring the sidewalk. The cost and fees incurred b y the city for the project is projected at $17,000. Thed aily fines imposed by the c ity to the property owners totals $9,900 ($25 per day from November 2009 through December 2010). The cost of prosecution for the city is $ 868.25. The defendant (Mitchelllindo for a total of $27,768.25. T he motion was approved after Sebring council members voted unanimously on Griffins motion. Mitchelllindo spoke to the News-Sun Thursday morning regarding the issue and how complicated it truly is. Mr. Swaine ... makes it sound like the city did everything right, but they did nothing right. He is only tellings mall parts of the story, he knows why the supreme court r uled the way it did, Mitchelllindo said. According to Mitchelllindo, the only reason the court turned down herc ase is because she failed to turn the proper paperwork in on time. Im not a lawyer. Im learning this as I go, but I didn ot have an attorney and Ive been fighting tooth and nail f or months because I made a mistake. I signed the property over to my husband in the beginning of the case so the proper person never got thec hance to fight. I wasnt even allowed in the courtroom until the end, Mitchelllindo claimed. Mitchelllindo also claimed before the suit was even filed by the city, that she had made multiple offers to the city in exchange for keeping her land. They wanted to give me $1,000 for $30,000 worth of fencing and property, said Mitchelllindo. People in this c ommunity need to be made aware. Im not doing this just f or me, Im doing it for them. The entire issue of the wall realistically boils down to twoi nches of space. Mitchelllindo a nd the city have yet to see eye to eye on how to fix the p roblem and likely never will. This has all been over two inches, but youre taking 20 feet and $60,000 worth ofp roperty and then put a lien on my property so they own it w hen I die. Its never been about any money, its about t he right and wrong of the issue, said Mitchelllindo. After all the battling in c ourt, Mitchelllindo still has questions regarding her own p roperty which bothers her further and makes her worry about the community. When you think you are secure, you are not. I worrya bout people and their property because I know of at least 65 other properties who used these surveyors. The city never had a survey done thats hows where their lines were. We still to this day have no i dea where our property line is, Mitchelllindo stated. Mitchelllindo has plans to pursue several civil cases for different matters revolvinga round the wall, two of which involves the surveyors of the property and Swaine. She feels that the city and its administrators have failed as a governing group and wants to bring awareness to the community, she said. They put you through so much and they beat you down so you just want to give up. But that is not going to happen. Im not giving up, Mitchelllindo said.

C M Y K Associated PressWASHINGTON The Supreme Court upheld a lawW ednesday giving U.S. copyright protection to paintings by Pablo Picasso, films of Alfred Hitchcock, music from Igor Stravinsky and millions of other works by foreign artists that had been freely available. The justices said in a 6-2 decision Wednesday that Congress acted within its power when it extended protection to works that had been in the public domain. The laws challengers complained that community orchestras, academics and others who rely on works that are available for free have effectively been priced out of performing Peter and the Wolf and other pieces that had been mainstays of their repertoires. The case concerned a 1994 law that was intended to bring the U.S. into compliance with an international treaty on intellectual property. Without it, American artists might have found it hard to protect their work in certain countries that lacked specific copyright arrangements with the United States. The law requires people to ask permission or pay royalties before copying, playing or republishing foreign works that previously could not have been copyrighted in the United States. The court ruled in 2003 that Congress may extend the life of a copyright. Wednesdays decision was the first time it said that published works lacking a copyright could later be protected. Neither congressional practice nor our decisions treat the public domain, in any and all cases, as untouchable by copyright legislation. The First Amendment likewise provides no exceptional solicitude for works in thep ublic domain, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said in her opinion for the court. But Justice Stephen Breyer, writing for himself and Justice Samuel Alito, said that an important purpose of a copyright is to encourage an author or artist to produce new work. The statute before us, however, does not encourage anyone to producea single new work. By definition, it bestows monetary rewards only on owners of old works, Breyer said. University of Denver music professor Lawrence Golan was the lead challenger to the law. He said the ruling will effectively prevent orchestras in small and medium-sized cities as well as high school and university ensembles from performing works by 20th century composers such as Shostakovich and Stravinsky because it will be too expensive. Works by Mozart and Beethoven, meanwhile, remain in thep ublic domain and wont require prohibitively expensive fees each time theyre performed. This ruling just eliminated a big chunk of the repertoire, mainly the middle of the 20th Century, said Golan, who conducts the universitys Lamont Symphony Orchestra and the Yakima Symphony Orchestra in Washington. Golan, a violinist, said he had hoped to have the Yakima orchestra open its next season with a celebratory Shostakovich concert but, following Wednesdays ruling, he plans instead to feature a work by Tchaikovsky not covered by the law. Justice Elena Kagan did not take part in the case because she worked on it while serving in the Justice Department. The case is Golan v. Holder, 10-545. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, January 20, 2012Page 7A JD FINANCIAL; 3.639"; 4"; Black plus three; process, 1/6,13,20,27; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 5 5 6 6 4 4 7 7 COWPOKES WATERING HOLE; 5.542"; 10.5"; Black plus three; process, 1/20/12; 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 6 6 0 0 2 2 3 3 By PETER JAMES SPIELMANNA ssociated PressNEWYORK The Arab Spring protests that shocked entrenchedr egimes in the Middle East and North Africa last year was the biggest challenge to authoritarian governments since the downfall of Soviet Communism, the pro-d emocracy watchdog group Freedom House said in a report released Thursday. The Washington-based group pointed to Tunisias ouster of dictator Zine el-Abidene Ben Ali ands ubsequent free national elections as one of the biggest leaps forward f or democracy since the group began publishing its annual review of global civil rights and libertiesi n 1972. The Tunisia protests inspired others throughout the r egion. But the crackdown on those uprisings weighed against the advance toward democracy and even prompted China to suppressd issent in its far-flung interior regions all the more harshly, the g roup said: In China, the authorities responded to events in Cairos Tahrir Square with a near-hysteri-c al campaign of arrests, incommunicado detentions, press censors hip, and stepped-up control over the Internet. The Middle East and North A frica saw gains in Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya, but it also suffered the most declines, with a list of worse ning countries that includes Bahrain, Iran, Lebanon, Saudi A rabia, Syria, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen. Syria and Saudi Arabia, two countries at the forefront of the violent reaction to the Arab Spring, fell from alreadyl ow positions to the surveys worstpossible ratings, Freedom House said in its report Freedom in the World 2012. Freedom House found that the w orld as a whole moved slightly more toward authoritarianism last year. eve been through a multiyear period in which the worlds author-i tarians seemed to be on the march and the democracies appeared to be in retreat, David J. Kramer, president of Freedom House, said in the report. But the past years trendsg ive reason for hope especially because they arose in a region of the world where many observers dismissed the idea of democratic change as futile. Twenty-six nations became less f ree and tolerant last year, while only 12 showed overall improvem ent, making it the sixth consecutive year in which countries with declines outnumbered those withi mprovements, the Freedom House report said. T he group ranks political rights and civil liberties on a scale of 1 (most freeleast freegely by reference to the values of the 1948 Universal Declaration onH uman Rights. Among the values examined are free elections, multip arty democracy, rule of law and equality of opportunity. The United States is ranked a mong the top free nations, but the new report warns of a rising in i solationist sentiment. Republicans and some Democrats criticized PresidentB arack Obama for giving Libyan rebels a decisive boost through air strikes that helped them bring d own longtime dictator Moammar Gadhafi, Freedom House noted. O bama also showed initial hesitation before he backed reforms in Egypt, Tunisia and Libya, the report said. While Obama publicly advocated d emocratic reform, he has failed to invoke the authority of the White House on specific cases.

C M Y K A ssociated PressEASLEY, S.C. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Thursday hes still the best conservativea lternative to Mitt Romney for the Republican president ial nomination, brushing aside a report saying that a vote canvass in Iowa showsR ick Santorum ended up edging Romney in the states G OPcaucuses. If you look at your own poll, Im clearly now withinf ive points of beating Romney in South Carolina, Gingrich told N BCs Today show in an early morning interview f rom South Carolina. The Georgia Republican was asked about a report in the Des Moines Register Thursday, saying a canvasso f the GOPcaucuses showed that Santorum, a former Pennsylvania senator, actually defeated Romney by 34 votes. Initial reporting on Iowa gave Romney a razorthin victory margin of eightv otes. In the interview, Gingrich c alled Santorum a fine person, but said hes running well behind in South Carolina, where voters go to the polls on Saturday. O n another issue, Gingrich declined to talk in detail about any damage to his campaign that might come from an interview that ABCN ews scheduled on its latenight program Nightline with his ex-wife, Marianne Gingrich. Im not going to say anything bad about Marianne, Gingrich said. He did say that members of his family had written to ABC to complain about the broadcast, saying he thought it was wrong for the network to be intruding into family things that are more than a decade old. Asked if he thought his ex-wife could say things that would harm his prospects, Gingrich said his daughters are credible character witnesses. Gingrich has been on an upswing in recent days, drawing big, enthusiastic crowds and fending off new attacks from Romney while reveling in a strong debate performance and a nod from tea party favorite Sarah Palin. But its unclear whether his latest burst of momentum, reflected in both internal and public polling, will be enough for him to overtake Romney. Complicating his effort are two other cons ervatives Santorum and Rick Perry who threaten t o siphon his support. ABC News has not indicated what Gingrichs exwife said in the interview, but the network planned tor elease excerpts ahead of Thursday nights GOP d ebate and Nightline broadcast. The mere existence of the i nterview shines a spotlight on a part of Gingrichs past t hat could turn off Republican voters in a state filled with religious and cult ural conservatives who may cringe at his two divorces and acknowledged infidelities. Marianne Gingrich has s aid Gingrich proposed to her before the divorce from his first wife was final in 1981; they were married six months later. H er marriage to Gingrich ended in divorce in 2000, a nd Gingrich has admitted hed already taken up withC allista Bisek, a former congressional aide who would become his third wife. The speaker who pilloried President Bill Clinton for hisa ffair with Monica Lewinsky was himself having an affair at the time. Underscoring the potential threat to his rise, Gingrichsc ampaign released a statement from his two daughters from his first marriage Kathy Lubbers and Jackie Cushman suggesting that Marianne Gingrichs comments may be suspect given the emotional toll divorce takes on everyone involved. Anyone who has had that experience understands it is a personal tragedy filled with regrets and sometimes differing memories of events, their statement said. ACNN/Time South Carolina poll released Wednesday showed Gingrich in second place with support from 23 percent of likely primary voters, having gained 5 percentage points in the past two weeks. Romney led in the poll with 33 percent, but he had slipped some since the last survey. Santorum was in third place, narrowly ahead of Texas Rep. Ron Paul and well ahead of Perry. Regardless of the South Carolina outcome, Gingrich was making plans to continue to Florida, which holds its primary Jan. 31. There is one candidate who can give you a conservative nominee and only one candidate who can stop Mitt Romney, Gingrich told an o verflow crowd of about 400 at Mutts BBQ in Easley on W ednesday. Avote for anyone else is a vote that allows Mitt Romney to potentially be our nominee. Confidence exudes from G ingrich, who rose in Iowa only to be knocked off c ourse after sustaining $3 million in attack ads in Iowa from an outside group thats upports Romney. Gingrich posted dismal s howings in both Iowa and N ew Hampshire. By the time the race t urned to South Carolina, he was sharply criticizing Romney as a social moderate who is timid about attacking the nations eco-n omic troubles. He also raised questions a bout Romneys experience as a venture capitalist, while a super PAC that supports G ingrich aggressively attacked Romney as a v icious corporate raider.

The glory days when Eastman Kodak Co. ruled the world of film photogra-p hy lasted for over a century. Then came a stunning reversal of fortune: cutthroat competition from Japanese firms in the 1980sa nd a seismic shift to the digital technology it pioneered but couldnt capital-i ze on. Now comes a wistful worry that this icon of American business is edg-i ng toward extinction. Kodak filed for Chapter 1 1 bankruptcy protection on Thursday, raising the specter that the 132-year-o ld trailblazer could become the most storied c asualty of a digital age that has whipped up a maelstrom of economic, social and technological change. Already a shadow of its f ormer self, cash-poor Kodak will now reorganize i n bankruptcy court as it seeks to boost its cash position and stay in business.T he Rochester, N.Y.-based company is pinning its h opes on peddling a trove of photo patents and morphing into a new-look power-h ouse built around printers and ink. Even if it succeeds, it seems unlikely to ever again resemble what its redon-yellow K logo longs tood for a signature brand synonymous in every corner of the planet with capturing, collecting and sharing images. Kodak played a role in pretty much everyones life in the 20th century becausei t was the company we entrusted our most treasured possession to ourm emories, said Robert Burley, a photography prof essor at Ryerson University in Toronto. Its yellow boxes of film, p oint-and-shoot Brownie and Instamatic cameras, a nd those hand-sized prints that made it possible for countless millions to freeze-frame their world were the products used tor emember and really define what that entire c entury looked like, Burley said. One of the interesting p arts of this bankruptcy story is everyones sadd ened by it, he continued. Former trailblazer Kodak files for bankruptcy

C M Y K By LAUREN WELBORN News-Sun correspondentSEBRING With a big game at steak and an added factor of midterm finals on the brain, the Lady Blue Streaks varsity soccer team had a lot on their plate as they took the field Tuesday night, facing McKeel Academy in the first round of the District 13-3Atournament at Firemens Field. Having lost twice to the Cats during regular season play, Sebring looked to turn the tables and hold down the team that was sure to test the strength of Sebring on multiple levels. This ambition seemed to start strong in Sebrings favor, as senior Justus Martin took the first shot on goal after less than a minute of play. McKeel was quick to recover, however, and took a shot of their own shortly after and another at the five minute mark that put them up 1-0. Sebring would not be discouraged just yet, seeing much time left on the clock before the end of the first half. Meghan Williams was quick to remind the Lady Cats that there was a reason Sebring had earned their seed, seeing a block for her team as she stretched to defend the upper corner of the net. Williams would charge out of the front of the goal to deflect the shot of By DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comAn old sports adage came back to haunt the Lady Dragons of the soccer pitch Tuesday night, as they fell by a 3-1 score int he opening round of the District 10-2Atournament to Mulberry. It was the adage that b eating a team three times in a row can be a difficult t hing to do. Lake Placid had topped t he Panthers twice during the regular season and e arned the top seed for the tournament. But those two wins, by 3-1 and 2-0 scores, werent the sort of lopsided differences that made this matcha sure thing. And Mulberrys 13-8-1 record coming into the contest showed that it had seen itsshare of successes on the season. But it looked, early on, as if the Dragons were continuing their strong year when Michelle Hunter booted a shot past the Panther keeper within the first six minutes of play. Mulberry, however, came right back to tie it a little more than three minutes later on an Olivia Dragons ousted in district tournament B y DAN HOEHNE daniel.hoehne@newssun.comLAKE PLACID Its been a long time coming for Jamacia Gayle, Tuesdays stunning 54-30 Lady Dragon win over Avon Park. The Lake Placid senior, after all, is a four-year starter who has been through the hard times. It was tough with all the losses before, she said. But that makes this feel so much better Though its the newcomers that have helped spark the turnaround, head coach Jackie Coyne and daughter/point guard Alex. So new, in fact, coach Coyne didnt fully grasp the magnitude of the county rivalry, which had been so one-sided for quite a few years. I guess I dont, because I j ust look at it as another team, another game, she said. That the cross-county battle had been joined this season was shown on Dec. 9, when the Lady Red Devils needed a comeback to top Lake Placid 52-50 at home, giving the Dragons what was still their only district loss heading into Tuesdays match-up. Which set the stage and brought out the biggest and most boisterous crowd the Lake Placid ladies had seen in years, which certainly helped. Oh, it definitely played a part for us, kept us energized, Gayle said. Even when we made a mistake, they kept us going. Which is something they needed early on as a combination of mishandled passes and missed free throws dug the Dragons an early hole. Brekayla English scored twice on drives for Avon Park and Imani Tate totaled four points in the opening period as well to stake the Devils to a 12-4 lead with Lake Placid going just 2-of10 from the foul line. Kayla Wilson started the second with a bucket in the paint and four more missed free throws from the Dragons dug the hole a little deeper. But Gayle soon got free inside for a score, Tate and English each split a pair at SPORTS B SE CTION News-Sun Friday, January 20, 2012 News-Sun photo by DAN HOEHNE Dino Lower, left, and Haley Pack model the newly unveiled uniforms for Sebring Softball.

Both defenses held the rest of the half to continue the 1-1 tie into the final 40 minutes. And for almost 25 of those minutes, it remained deadlocked. But another Schuh shot found the back of the net at the 15:22 mark put the P anthers on top. The Dragons went back on the attack and created some opportunities, but their shots on goal werent finding their marks. Jenteal Hudson the sealed the deal when she got past the Lake Placid defense and beat the keeper for a 3-1 lead with just over five minut es left to play. e beat them pretty good both times during the season, senior forward Brittany Collison said. But as a whole, we just did not play well tonight. Not the best time to turn in a bad performance after the brilliance of a regular season that had seen just one loss and two ties. But as head coach John Merlo was quoted as saying, One game does not definey ou. Im proud of how hard my girls played all year and how hard they worked, he said.

The Blue Streaks were putting up quite a fight, with Kristina Williams and Sarah Smith both putting pressure on the McKeel keeper as the last minutes ticked away. As the battle continued, McKeel would squeak in one more goal before the half, putting Sebring behind 3-0. Sebring came out with a vengeance when play began for the final 40 minutes, refusing to give up just yet. Illustrating Sebrings determination to play was Martin, who took a strong shot to the head from a McKeel defender attempting to clear the ball up field. She quickly stood up and brushed off the injury and continued playing without missing a beat one of many sacrifices the girls made for their team throughout the night. Defenders such as D estiny McCartney, Jordan Hinkle, Taryn OBannon and Mariana Becker minimized many McKeel threats while Williams added to her save count to put an end to McKeels streak. However, McKeel would cunningly sneak a header into the goal and would later earn a penalty kick that would cap their 5-0 lead. Regarding the teams previous matches with McKeel, head coach Paul Brown credited the girls for a better performance. It is a tough district and I cannot take anything away from McKeel; we were beaten by a better team, Brown said. They scored an early goal and kept the pressure on our defense. ere looking forward to working at it and continue to improve for next year Continued from 1B News-Sun photo by LAUREN WELBORN Jennifer Cochran gets a leg up, way up, to keep this ball in bounds Tuesday night. Sebring falls in Districts the line, and consecutive Lake Placid hoops narrowed the gap. Arnetia Gobourne took an assist from Alex Coyne on the break for two and Coyne followed that up with a three to cut it to 16-11. English hit another free throw, but Coyne was heating up. The senior went 5-of-6 from the line for the rest of the period, with Gobourne g oing 2-of-4, to shave the deficit to 21-18 at the half. At that point, I thought we were right where we wanted to be, coach Coyne said. (Avon Park) had played so hard and we had made so many mistakes, missed so many free throws, and yet we were only down three. I knew once we corrected our mistakes we would be in good shape. That certainly played out in the second half as Kunshe Wilson started the third with a score inside to cut the lead to one. Coyne then hit a pair at the line to give the Dragons their first lead. English drove for two to get the lead back, but Coyne came right back, driving the length of the floor for as core that would but Lake Placid up for good. Because for the rest of the period, the Lady Devils w ould not score again and the Dragons roared to life w ith 15 straight points. G ayle scored five, Gobourne hit a three, Bria Wilson hit a basket and free throw and Coyne connected on a pair from the line during the run. The period then ended with Kunshe nabbing a steal off the Lake Placid press and laying it in just before the buzzer sounded. The three-point halftime deficit was now a 16-pointl ead at 39-23. Avon Park tried to get back into it, with Johntavia Perry getting three points e arly on in the fourth. But Coyne kept the D ragons rolling with a score i nside, a drive through the lane and hit 3-of-4 from the line. Kunshe Wilson added five points during the run to push it to 51-26, before a now deflated Devil squad got another score from Perry. Lake Placid senior Katie Tucciarone added a three from the corner and Takesha Williams got the final AvonP ark score to provide for the final margin. The losing streak is over, Gayle said. It feels r eally to have the whole team playing so well. Our e nergy and confidence keeps g etting higher With the win, the Dragons handed the Devils their first district loss of the season, putting both teams at 6-1 atop the standings. I cant imagine watching it, because as a coach you cant see it like that, coach Coyne said. But it was just a great game for us. I think were underestimated a lot, but these girls play hardf rom start to finish and you cant ask for anything more t han that.

C M Y K Orthotics are shoe inserts that are intended to correct ana bnormal, or irregular, walking pattern. Orthotics are not truly or solely arch supports, although some people canu se those words to describe them and they perhaps can best be understood with those words in mind. They perform functions that make standing,w alking and running more comfortable and efficient, by altering slightly the angles at which the foot strikes a walking or running surface. Doctors of podiatric medic ine prescribe orthotics as a conservative approach to m any foot problems or as a method of control after certain types of foot surgery;t heir use is a highly successful, practical treatment form. O rthotics take various forms and are constructed of various materials. All are concerned with improving foot function and minimizings tress forces that could ultimately cause foot deformity a nd pain. Foot orthotics fall into three broad categories: Thoset hat primarily attempt to change foot function; those t hat are primarily protective in nature; and those that combine functional control andp rotection.Rigid orthoticsThe so-called rigid orthotic d evice, designed to control function, may be made of a firm material such as plastic or carbon fiber and is usedp rimarily for walking or dress shoes. It is generally fabricated from plastic paris mold from the individual foot. The finished device nor-m ally extends along the sole of the heel to the ball or the toes of the foot. It is worn mostly in closed shoes with a heel height under two inches.B ecause of the nature of the materials involved, very little alternation in shoe size is necessary. Rigid orthotics are chiefly designed to control motion int wo major foot joints, which lie directly below the ankle j oint. These devices are long lasting, do not change shape and are usually difficult tob reak. Strains, aches and pains in the legs, thighs and l ower back may be due to abnormal function of the foot, or a slight difference in the length of the legs. In such cases, orthotics may improveo r eliminate these symptoms, which may seem only r emotely connected to foot function.Soft orthoticsT he second, or soft, orthotic device helps to absorb shock, increase balance andt ake pressure off uncomfortable or sore spots. It is usually constructed of soft, comp ressible materials and may be molded by the action of t he foot in walking or fashioned over a plaster impression of the foot. Alsow orn against the sole of the foot, it usuallye xtends from the heel past the ball of the foot toi nclude the toes. The advantage of any soft orthotic device is that it may be easily adjusted to changing weight-bearing forces.T he disadvantage is that it must be periodically replaced o r refurbished. It is particularly effective for arthritic and grossly deformed feetw here there is a loss of protective fatty tissue on the side o f the foot. It is also widely used in the care of the diabetic foot. Because its compressible, the soft orthotic is usually bulkier and may wellr equire extra room in shoes, or prescription footwear.Semi-rigid orthoticsT he third type of orthotic device (semi-rigid f or dynamic balance of the foot while walking or participating in sports. This orthotici s not a crutch, but an aid to the athlete. Each sport has its own demand and each sport o rthotic needs to be constructed appropriately with t he sport and the athlete taken into consideration. This functional dynamic orthotic helps guide the foot throughp roper functions, allowing the muscles and tendons to perform more efficiently.The classic, semi-rigid orthotic is constructed of layers of softm aterial, reinforced with more rigid materials.Orthotics for childrenOrthotic devices are effective in the treatment of children with foot deformities. Most podiatric physicians recommend that childrenw ith such deformities be placed in orthotics soon after t hey start walking, to stabilize the foot. The devices can be placed directly into a stan-d ard shoe, or an athletic shoe. Usually, the orthotics need t o be replaced when the childs foot has grown two sizes. Different types of orthotics may be needed as the childs foot develops andc hanges shape. The length of time a child n eeds orthotics varies considerably, depending on the seriousness of the deformity andh ow soon correction is addressed.Other types of orthoticsVarious other orthotics may be used for multi-direct ional sports or edge-control sports by casting the foot w ithin the ski boot, ice skate boot, or in-line skate boot. Combinations of semi-flexible material and soft materialt o accommodate painful areas are utilized for specific problems. Research has shown that back problems frequently canb e traced to a foot imbalance. Its important for your podiatric physician to evaluate the lower extremity as a whole to provide for appropriateo rthotic control for foot problems.Orthotic tips1. Wear shoes that wear w ell with your orthotics. 2. Bring your orthotics w ith you whenever you purchase a new pair of shoes. 3. Wear socks or stockings similar to those that you plano n wearing when you shop for new shoes. 4. Return as directed for follow-up evaluation of the functioning of your orthotics.T his is important to making certain that your feet and orthotics are functioning properly together. D r.

C M Y K D earPharmacist: I read your Facebook post about people with asthma and how they should be dairy free. I feel better after just onew eek. I also read where you recommend two supplements for asthma which I just started (Coleus Forskholii and N-Acetylcysteine). You are saving my life Suzy. Whate lse? J.R., Rockwall, Texas Answer: My answer will set you back about $10 perm onth. If you have even a fleas foot-sized interest in h ealth matters, youve no doubt heard about the problems associated with too little vitamin D. Adeficiency of this powerhouse vitaminh as been implicated in just about everything from obesit y, heart disease, cancer and international threats to world peace. Okay, Im exaggerat-i ng a little. Today, lets add yet another health problem t o the list of maladies impaled on the lance of this nutritional white knight.A sthma. Apparently, children reared in cold and humid c limates have a higher incidence of asthma than child ren raised in sunnier climates. Sun provides vitamin D. Spanish researchers, headed by epidemiologist Alberto Arnedo-Pena, pub-l ished these findings in the 2010 International Journal of Biometeorology. Theres more. Results of a study presented in the American Journal of Respiratory and CriticalC are found that asthmatics with low vitamin D levels s uffered more severe attacks than those with normal levels. Participants with normalD levels also responded better to medication treatmenta nd had better overall lung function. So how much vitamin D should you take? Base it on blood levels. Take vitamin Du ntil your blood levels fall between 30 and 74 ng/ml, or you feel remarkably better. I believe that anything below 50 ng/ml is too low so shoot for 50-70. In fact, I recommend vitamin D as Step 2 in my book, Diabetes Without Drugs because it improves insulin sensitivity more efficiently than some medications. That alone should make you take a nice deep b reath. If you supplement with D, measure your blood levels atl east twice yearly to ensure that you dont get too much. S eriously, its really hard to do. In 1999, Dr. Reinhold Vieth reviewed dozens of studies and fount its practically impossible to becomet oxic on 2,000 IUs a day. Go shopping and youll find b ottles of D supplements at the pharmacy and health food store with dosages of5 ,000 or 10,000 IU per capsule. F YI, people with SAD or Seasonal Affective Disorder benefit from extra D at thist ime of year. Ive been a pharmacist for 23 years, so I can tell you t hat over-the-counter vitamin D3 (aka cholecalciferol t otally different from the drug which is vitamin D2 (aka ergocalciferol). D2 is synthetic and less potent than natural D3 supplements.C od liver oil provides natural D3 plus healthy essential fatty acids. But the best and cheapest way to get vitamin D3 is from sunshine. Buy a bikini because you want sun on your belly and back. Yourb ody will convert the D3 in your body much better than i t can from supplements.

KELLYPEPPER S pecial to the News-SunPerhaps youve skipped this breakfast gem for fear of raising your cholesterol. Free yourself from that mis-c onception and indulge in the treasure that a good ol egg has to offer. Three eggs per day over a 12-week period for obese participants on a carbohydrate restricted diet actually lowered the bad LDLcholesterol and raised the good HDL. Another study showed that two eggs per day for six weeks did not affect cholesterol levels or brachial artery endothelial function. Yet another study demonstrated that people eating equal to or more than four eggs per week had lower cholesterol levels than those eating less than or one egg per week. That aside, eggs are packed with vitamins A, D, E, B2, B6, B9, iron, calcium, phosphorous, potassium and choline. Now, when you think choline, think brains and babies. One egg supplies 20 percent of the daily recommended intake of choline and is used as a building block for phospholipids used in all cell membranes and particularly integ ral in brain and nerve health. Share with all pregnant women you know that choline from eggs is essential for proper fetal braind evelopment, decreased neural tube defects, and is a necessary constituent in breast milk. In addition, choline proves important in: memory function, reducing breast cancer risk, and maintaining normal homocysteine levels. It also lowers: plasma C-reactive protein, tumor necrosis factor, and interleukin 6. In fact, in one study, lack of dietary choline resulted in fatty liver, muscle damage and some organ dysfunction. Lutein and zeaxanthin are the carotenoids that imbue the bright sunshine to the yolk, so think eyes and a healthy macula when the rays beam your way. Lutein levels from eggs beat both cooked spinach and lutein supplements by three times in blood serum, and 12 weeks of eating eggs increased subjectszeaxanthin serum levels and macular pigment. Tryptophan and tyrosine are two amino acid egg antioxidants. Tryptophan, with a little help from a carb ohydrate meal, crosses the blood brain barrier and is converted to serotonin. Serotonin, a potent mood enhancer (as many anti-d epressants induce elevated levels of) can be then converted in the pineal gland to melatonin, which promotes sleepiness. Tyrosine is a precursor to epinephrine, norepinephrine, dopamine and thyroid hormones all modulating your go-go, good feelings, and alertness. Now, before you go out and buy out the market, keep in mind that pastureraised, free-grazing hens produce a superior quality egg and are less prone to salmonella contamination. Free hens lay eggs with three times more vitamin E, seven times more betacarotene, one-third less cholesterol, one-quarter less saturated fat, two-thirds more vitamin A, and two times more omega-3 fatty acids. Agreat bargain, eggs are easy on the wallet and packed with goodness. So, be brave, be an egghead, and see what these capsules of dense nutrition can do for you. Get crackin in the morning Eggs are a treasure trove of nutrition Metro Services Eggs have gotten a bad rap, but recent studies show eating them actually lowers cholesterol levels. Associated PressN EWYORK Paula Deen, the Southern belle o f butter and heavy cream, makes no apologies for waiting three years to disclose she has diabetes while continuing to dish up deep-fried cheesecake and other high-calorie, high-fat recipes on TV. She said she isnt changing the comfort cooking t hat made her a star, though it isnt clear how much of it shell continue to eat while she promotes h ealth-conscious recipes along with a diabetes drug shes endorsing for a Danish company. Ive always said, Practice moderation, yall.Ill probably say that a little louder now Deen said Tuesday after revealing her diagnosis on NBCs Today show. ou can have diabetes and have a piece of cake. You cannot have diabetes and eat a whole cake. H ealth activists and one f ellow chef called her a h ypocrite for promoting an unhealthy diet along with a drug to treat its likely effects. Deen added her support of the Novo N ordisk company to a coll ection of lucrative e ndorsements that include S mithfield ham and P hiladelphia Cream Cheese. Deen, who will turn 65 on Thursday, said she kept her diagnosis private as she and her family figured out what to do, presumably about her health and a career built solidly on Southern cooking. Among her recipes: deep-fried cheesecake covered in chocolate and powdered sugar, and a quiche that calls for a pound of bacon. I really sat on this information for a few years because I said, Oh, my gosh, what am I going to do about this? Is my life fixing to change? Am I no longer going to like my life? she asked. I had to have time to adjust and soak it all in and get up all the information that I could. While Deen, who lives in Savannah, Ga., has cut out the sweet tea she routinely drank straight through to bedtime and taken up treadmill walking, she plans few changes on the air. Government doctors say that being overweight (as Deen is), over 45 (as Deen is) and inactive (as Deen was) increase the risk for developing Type 2 diabetes. Growth of the disease in the U.S. has been closely tied to escalating obesity rates. Roughly 23 million Americans are believed to have the most common Type 2 diabetes.

Larson to speak at SIM conference next week Dr. Knute Larson Associated PressSALTLAKE CITY Utah has authority to prevent beer taverns and liquor clubsf rom offering happy-hour discounts, state attorneys said in a court filing defending peculiar regulations governing liquor in a state dominated by teetotaling Mormons. The Utah Hospitality Association, a trade g roup for bars and restaurants, filed the federal antitrust lawsuit in June, arguing that the happy-hour ban amounted to price fixing by state authorities. The association amended its lawsuit in O ctober to seek a court order that would prohibit Utah legislators from letting the Mormon church influence them when writ-i ng liquor laws. In a court filing Thursday, the Utah Attorney Generals office asked U.S.D istrict Judge Bruce S. Jenkins to throw out the lawsuit. B ecause the happy-hour ban is applied uniformly throughout Utah, the state argues, it doesnt violate antitrust law. T he restriction is a proper exercise of the state of Utahs right to control the importat ion and distribution of alcoholic beverages under the 21st Amendment, the state lawyers wrote. The industry is targeting the latest c hanges to Utahs liquor laws, 197 pages of legislation enacted last year that, among other things, limit to 2 liters the size of a heavy beer container that can be sold in state liquor stores. Retailers can sell onlyl ight beer, with less than 4 percent alcohol by volume. But it was the ban on drinks sold at a special or reduced price that caught the ire of Utahs bars, along with new limits onc oveted liquor licenses. The quotas are tied to municipal population counts and the number of police offi-c ers available to enforce alcohol offenses. The state attorneys also defended the influence of the Church of Jesus Christ ofL atter-day Saints on Utahs liquor laws, which are expansive and precise when it c omes to pouring drinks. Asingle serving of wine, for instance, cannot exceed 5 ounces. Under the state and federal constitutions, r eligious groups and individuals have a right to participate in the political process, the l awyers wrote.

Grandmother never trusted such things as banks with her money. Someone once told my grandmother, Ify ou would put your money in the bank, they would pay you interest. With a confused look on her face she responded, I have enough interest in my money, nobody else needs to bothera bout it. That was that! After my grandfather died, my wife and I had the opportunity to take grand-m a out for supper. It was a delightful restaurant and we thought it would be a real treat for her. More than once, I hadt o keep her from getting up and serving coffee to the rest of the people in the r estaurant. After all, she did that at the church suppers. Why not here. Ive got two good legs, she protested. T hen came time to pay the check and the waiter brought the check and laid it i n front of me. I immediately took a credit card out of my wallet and laid it on the check. I could tell grandma had never seen a credit card before. Put that away, she said. I believe t hat man wants you to pay for our supper. Dont you have any money? Im paying for our supper with my credit card, I explained. Oh, dear, she moaned. You know I d ont believe in cards. Cards are of the devil, and I have never had a deck of c ards in my house. Im a little surprised that you, a minister, would be fooling around with such things of the devil. S he insisted we tip the waiter in good ole American cash. I am not sure if grandma ever really understood the credit card. She bought nothing on credit and did not accept credit. Everythingh ad to be done in cash. She often quoted the scripture verse that says, Owe no man any thing . . (Romans 13:8 KJV which she took quite literally. As grandma got older, she began to r ethink the business of opening a bank account. Without telling anyone, she d ecided to go to the bank and open an account. She had saved up $50 for this p urpose. Grandma nervously entered the bank and walked up to the man sitting at the desk marked New Accounts. Good morning, Maam. Im Gary Goodman. How can I help you today? T he man seemed pleasant enough, and grandma thought entrusting him with the delicate job at hand was proba-b ly safe. I wanna open an account, she mumbled. Fine. Ill get you all set up. It wont take but a few minutes. With that, he t ook out some papers and laid them on his desk in front of grandma. Now, he said, lets begin. What is y our name? She told him. O.K. What is your address? What? What is your address? Why do you need to know that? Im just filling out the form, M aam. The young man a little confused with h er hesitancy said, We can come back to that. What is your date of birth? Grandmas face turned a little red. What do you want to know that for she gasped? Im just filling out the forms. Can you give me your telephone number? That did it for grandma. She got up f rom her seat and looked him right in the face and said, Young man, I dont know who you think you are, but I am not interested in your advances. Im old enough to be your mother. You ought tob e ashamed. Just then the manager of the bank walked by. Mary, what are you doing here? The manager quickly assessed the situ ation and told the young man he would take care of this customer and tried to c onsole my grandmother. I dont know whats gotten into young folk these days, she whispered. Barely concealing his manager his smile he said, Ill take care of you, Mary, he assured her. He knew all thei nformation about her and quickly filled in the paper work and walked grandma to the teller for her first deposit. Grandma handed the teller a crumpled $50 bill. The teller took it and gave hera deposit receipt. Wheres my money? grandma demanded. Its safe in the bank, Maam. How do you know my money from everyone elses? The money is all deposited in the bank, and if you need any, all you do is w rite a check.She showed grandma how to write out a check. By now grandma was confused and more than al ittle exasperated. Quickly grandma wrote out a check for $50 and handed it b ack to the teller. oure withdrawing all your money? es. The teller counted out $50 and hande d it to her. Grandma looked at the teller and said, No. I want MYmoney. The t eller retrieved the crumpled $50 bill and handed it to grandma. As she walked out, the teller heard h er mumble, What a crazy way to run business. No wonder banks fail. T here is only one sure account I can bank on. Jesus said, Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where m oth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not breakt hrough nor steal: (Matthew 6:19-20 KJV).

C M Y K DearAbby: I caught my 16-year-old daughter, Krista, smoking marijua-n a. I punished her for it, but never told my wife because I was afraid shed force me to make a decision that I dont want tom ake. I have been married to my second wife for three years. For much of that time, Krista has been a nightmare. When she goest o school, more often than not shes in the principals o ffice for bad behavior. At home shes worse. She doesnt listen to anyone.W e have tried every type of punishment we can t hink of and nothing has worked. Recently, my wife brought up the idea of sending Krista to a board-i ng school for troubled teens. At first, the suggest ion made me angry, but after the marijuana incident I am more receptive to it. I a m wracked with guilt. Sending my daughter away m akes me feel like a failure as a father. But there may be no other choice.H ow does a parent know when enough is enough? Fed-Up Father in M innesota DearFather: Do not s end your daughter away to a boarding school for troubled teens without first having a psychologist identify what is troublingh er. If you do what your wife is suggesting, your daughter could return home with more problems than she left with. Sending her away should be a last resort. Some family coun-s eling should be tried first. D earAbby: Afriend has been confiding in me, telling me her husband abuses her. She says it has gone on the entire 12 yearst hey have been together. He does it in front of the kids, sometimes even while shes nursing or holding their youngest. He alsot hreatens to shoot her. Im afraid for her safety. She left him once, but went back after he promised to change and temporarily became the charming man she wishes him to be. She knows she needs to leave again, and I have told her Ill help her in any way I can to make it happen. Shes trying to hold out until she finishes her degree and can financially support the kids on her own. Im afraid she wont make it that long. I feel so helpless. I worry that by standing by and not taking some kind of action, Ill be partly responsible for anythingt hat may happen to the kids. On the other hand, s he tells me these things in confidence. What can I do to help? Terrified for My Friend D earTerrified: Continue encouraging your friend to leave. Aman who abuses, terrorizes and threatens to shoot his wife in front of the children, yet would have no hesitat ion about hurting all of them. By now she should have r ealized that her abuser will never be the man she i magined him to be. The time to leave is while things are calm beforeh is next outburst. In order for him to control her, he needs to keep her depende nt. If he senses that shes nearing a point where she c an support herself and the children without him, he could explode. Make sure she knows how to contact the NationalD omestic Violence Hotline. The toll-free number is 800-799-7233. The experts there can help her formulate as safe an escape plan as possible. D earAbby: I am currently in a relationship that h as become a roller coaster ride for the last few months. My significant other is always accusing me of cheating. He alsos tarts arguments for no reason. Sometimes I wonder if he is having an affair and trying to throw the blame on me for his guilt issues.W hat do you think? Argued Out in Indiana DearArgued Out: Thats very possible. Another reason might be that hes no longer interested in you and wants to break up. Rather than tolerate his emotional abuse, take the bull by the horns and ask him. Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren. By CHRISTYLEMIRE A PMovie CriticAstraight-up action pict ure may sound unusual coming from Steven Soderbergh, but as hes repeatedly demonstrated throughout his career, hes keen to experiment with every genre imaginable. And if you look closely at his latest, Haywire, youll find it reveals glimmers of some of his greatest hits. Its a revenge thriller like The Limey (and comes from the same screenwriter, Lem Dobbs). It features a color-coded palette scheme to correspond with each new location in this globe-trotting tale, like Traffic. It has a s-style aesthetic sensibility reminiscent of The Informant! It boasts an allstar cast like Soderberghs Oceans movies, Full Frontal and, most recently, Contagion. But at its center is an actress whod never appeared in a major feature film before, like The Girlfriend Experience and Bubble. So since were in the midst of making comparisons, well just say that Haywire feels like minor Soderbergh: zippy, hugely entertaining and well-crafted as always (since he once again serves as his own cinematographer and editor), but not one of his more important films in the broad scheme of things. It does, however, mark the auspicious film debut of MMAsuperstar Gina Carano as special-ops bad-ass Mallory Kane. Carano had never acted before, and not only did she do all her own stunts, she had to do them ina way that she wouldnt injure her male co-stars, including Ewan McGregor, Michael Fassbender and Channing Tatum. Her dialogue delivery may seem a bit stiff and she has acknowledged that Soderbergh made some tweaks to her voice in postproduction but she has tremendous presence: an intriguing mix of muscular power and eye-catching femininity. Mallory works for a private contractor that performs secret missions for the U.S. government. Her latest required her and her team to rescue a Chinese journalist whod been kidnapped and was being held captive in Barcelona. The mission itself (pretty much planned, but afterward she finds shes been set up. Now, her task is to figure out whos double-crossed her and why. All of this takes place out of chronological order as it hops around between upstate New York, Barcelona, Washington, Dublin, the scrub-brushed buttes of New Mexico and a Mexican beach at sunset. (That last location is one of the most beautiful, with the warm, jagged rocks serving as a striking backdrop for one of the films most intense fights.) Mallory tells her story to the poor schmo whose car she has to borrow (played by Michael Angarano) for escape; its intentionally disorienting, but thats part of the fun. Among the excellent cast, McGregor plays Mallorys obviously slimy boss, with whom she shares some sort of nebulous romantic history. Tatum is her partner on the Barcelona job, who may or may not be trustworthy. Fassbender is the British agent with whom shes asked to team up on a follow-up mission; their scenes smolder with an old-school James Bond sense of glamour and intrigue, as well as danger. Michael Douglas plays Mallorys government contact and the one person she seems to be able to trust aside from her father (Bill Paxton who, like her, is a former Marine. And Antonio Banderas is her Spanish connection, a role he plays in almost as cartoonish a fashion as his Puss in Boots character. Regardless of the setting, the opponent or their motives, Soderbergh is smart enough to emphasize Caranos strengths. He lets the elaborate fight scenes play out lets us see every kick, punch and body slam without a lot of needless edits and even without any music. The battles provide their own rhythm, and afterward you may feel as if youve been worked over as well. But in a good way. www.newssun.comN ews-SunF riday, January 20, 2012Page 11B Fairmount 1x6 DIVERSIONS Daughters behavior puts her on the brink of banishment Dear Abby By JAKE COYLE A PEntertainment WriterI n Red Tails, the famed Tuskegee Airmen get the John Wayne-style heroic rendering they very much deserve, but in a hackneyeda nd weirdly context-less story that does them a disservice. Long a pet project of his, George Lucas self-financedt he film and has said he hopes Red Tails will prove theres an audience for allblack movies. Thats a laudable goal, but Red Tails reduces a historical story ofd eep cultural significance to merely a flyboy flick. I nstead of creating something authentic and new, Red Tails superimposes thet ale of the black World War II pilots on a dated, white genre o f 1940s patriotic propaganda. Red Tails is blatantly old-fashioned, just with a change in color. In medias res hardly says i t: Red Tails opens in the midst of an aerial dog fight w hile the credits are still rolling. Director Anthony Hemingway plunges righti nto the action, skipping all that pesky backstory of black m en braving the segregation of Jim Crowe America and, against the odds, rising up att he Tuskegee Institute. That history was stressed in an earlier 1995 HBO film, The Tuskegee Airmen, which benefited from L aurence Fishburnes sturdy presence. Aco-star from that movie, Cuba Gooding Jr., is here, too, as the pipe-chomping Maj. Emanuelle Stance.T he other higher-up with him is Col. A.J. Bullard, played with unnatural speech by Terrence Howard, whose smooth voice fails to find the register of a commander. The film is centered, though, on the pilots of the 3 32nd Fighter Group, which earned the nickname of Red T ails from the painted ends of their P-47 fighters. These first black military aviators in the U.S. armed forces flew more than 150,000 sortieso ver Europe and North Africa during WWII, often escorting Allied bombers. Sixty-six were killed in action. Their bravery helped persuade President Harry S. T ruman to desegregate the military in 1948. Some 300 of them are still a live, and most, by invitation, attended President B arack Obamas inauguration. Our group of thinly sketched pilots all come with clichi nicknames: Joe Lightning Little (David Oyelowo), Marty Easy J ulian (Nate Parker Junior Gannon (Tristan Wilds), Andrew SmokyS alem (Ne-Yo), Maurice Bumps Wilson (Michael B. J ordan) and Samuel Joker George (Elijah Kelly The brash, talented L ightning (who at one point is actually referred to as the best damned pilot weve g ot) and the alcoholic captain Easy are at the films c ore, which is buoyed by a warm feeling of camaraderie among the pilots. Lightning also pursues and finds romance with a localb eauty (Daniela Ruah their Italian base. The biggest flaw here is the corny script by John Ridley and Aaron McGruder, the Boondocks cartoonist. T heres a fine, swaggering vibe, but a curious hesitance to really tell the Tuskegees tory. Half of their two-front war ( at home and in battle) goes largely without depiction, except for one or two minor scrapes with racist officers. Neither is any hint given to t he less than rapturous welcoming the men would get on t heir return home. The whole thing is unrealistically sunny, both literallya nd metaphorically. The skies are always bright blue (better f or highlighting the digital trickery) and hardly anyone dies. E ver since Star Wars, Lucas and his Industrial Light and Magic effects h ouse have always specialized in aerial combat and Red Tails is no exception. The dogfights are elegant and clearly staged, set against a majestic European landscape.

C M Y K LIVING 12B PA GE News-Sun Friday, January 20, 2012 F AMILYFEATURES Theres a lot more that goes into a great smile than just keeping the pearly whites, well, white. Protecting tooth enamel plays an important role in having a beautiful and healthy smile.What is tooth enamel?Enamel is the thin outer covering of the tooth. Its the hardest tissue in the human body and it helps protect teeth from the wear and tear that comes with chewing, biting and grinding. It also helps insulate teeth from hot and cold, making it possible to enjoy ice cream or hot coffee. While enamel is hard, it can chip or crack. O nce the enamel layer is lost, it cannot regenerate.What causes enamel erosion?Enamel erosion happens when acids wear away the enamel on teeth, which can lead to the loss of tooth structure. The calcium thats in saliva will usually help strengthen teeth after you have a small amount of acid, but too much acid prevents that from happening. Enamel erosion can be caused by a number of things:Excessive consumption of carbonated drinks sodas and other carbonated drinks contain high levels of phosphoric and citric acids, which can dissolve the enamel on your teeth quickly. The more you drink, or the longer you hold the drink in your mouth, the more damage is done.Fruit drinks (some acids in fruit drinks are more erosive than battery acid)Dry mouth or low salivary flowDiet (high in sugar and starchesAcid reflux diseaseGastrointestinal problemsMedications (aspirin, antihistamines)Genetics (inherited conditionsEnvironmental factors (friction, wear and tear, stress and corrosion)Protecting Tooth EnamelThere are some simple things that you can do to help take care of your enamel and keep your teeth healthy:Brush and floss daily. Mom and the dentist are right. Keeping your teeth clean prevents enamel-damaging elements from building up. Be sure to brush for two minutes at least twice a day.Use fluoride toothpaste. Fluoride is a tooth strengthener, so it should be a part of your twice-daily brushing routine. For fluoride toothpaste with enamel care built in, consider ARM & HAMMERComplete CareEnamel Strengthening toothpaste. Its the only toothpaste with fluoride and Liquid Calcium, which strengthens enamel while gently removing plaque and whitening teeth. Learn more at www.ahcompletecare.com. See a dentist forregular check-ups and cleaning. Not only will it help keep your teeth cleaner, but also your dentist can detect problems before you can which means a small problem can be taken care of before it becomes a big one.Drink sodas in moderation. Sodas can be 10 times more corrosive than fruit juices in the first three minutes of drinking, according to a study published in the Academy of General Dentistry (AGD Dentistry. The acids in the beverages damage your enamel, which then allows bad bacteria to get to the tooth. If youre not going to avoid sodas or fruit juices, rinsing after enjoying these types of drinks can help.Be careful about otherbeverages, too. Another study by the AGD found that the damage caused by non-cola and sports beverages was three to 11 times greater than cola-based drinks, with energy drinks and bottled lemonades causing the most harm to tooth enamel. Sports beverages contain additives and organic acids that can advance dental erosion. These organic acids break down calcium, which is needed to strengthen teeth and prevent gum disease.Photo courtesy of Getty Images BrushingBasicsWhats the big deal about brushing? The Academy of General Dentistry says that:Toothpaste and a correct brushing action work to remove the sticky, harmful film of bacteria, called plaque, that grows on your teeth and causes cavities, gum disease and eventual tooth loss if not controlled.Toothpaste contains fluoride, which makes the entire tooth structure more resistant to decay and aids in repairing early decay before the damage can even be seen.Special ingredients in toothpaste help to clean and polish the teeth and remove stains over time. One of those special ingredients is baking soda. As a cleaning agent, baking soda is less abrasive than virtually any other cleaning agent used in toothpastes. Less abrasion means less tooth wear, which helps keep your teeth healthier, longer. And when it comes to cleaning, recent studies indicate that baking soda in high concentrations, like those found in most ARM & HAMMER toothpastes, breaks down into tiny particles that are able to penetrate enamel crevices and remove food particles and deep stain embedded there.Sip with a straw. Drink sodas and fruit juices with a straw, which helps acids to bypass the teeth.Be mindful of snacking. Eating foods which are high in sugar and starches increases the amount of acid in your mouth. If you cant avoid snacking, brush your teeth afterward or at least give it a good rinsing. Snacking on celery, carrots or apples helps clear away loose food and debris.Chew sugar-free gum. It increases saliva production, and saliva has minerals that helps strengthen teeth. Choose a sugar-free gum that has xylitol, which can reduce acids.Wait one hourto brush yourteeth. Because acid weakens enamel, brushing immediately after consuming highly acidic food or drinks, like wine, coffee, citrus fruits and soft drinks, runs the risk of wearing away the enamel in its weakened state. Taking good care of your teeth lets you show off a great smile and a healthy mouth for a long time.
