    use a new layer for items that do not scroll … that always show in the scene

    Inspector > Scene > Layers [+] … to add newLayer
    click once on that newLayer … uncheck Scrollable … tap the enterKey … type in HUD
    drag that layer above the Background one
    drag your health/item into that layer

    HUD is Heads Up Display: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HUD_(video_gaming)

    thx, problem solved . . But here come another one . . . How to make a "spawn" actor into sidescrolling layer?
    I can't drag it to sidescrolling layer, since the layer didn't appear on scene layer. Except i drag it into the screen, but it wouldn't becoma a "spawn" actor anymore if i drop it to the scene . . .
