Cost of Christmas is going up


Cos t 1 "' A's Da f s iI "'
reflects consumer pricing trends.


Historically low unem-
ployment is making it


more expensive to give the
gift of live entertainment


this year, according to the
PNC Christmas Price In-
dex. The tongue-in-cheek
economic analysis by PNC
Wealth Management is
based on the cost of gifts in

of Jasper L .ald ir. the mall across from the old Hamilton County High School


the holiday classic, "The
Twelve Days of Christ-
mas."
According to the 22nd
annual survey, the cost of
"The Twelve Days of
Christmas" is $18,920 in
2006, a 3.1% increase over
last year. Gift prices mir-
rored the US government's
Consumer Price Index a
widely used measure of in-
flation calculated by the
Bureau of Labor Statistics.
"The Christmas Price In-
dex reflects trends in the
broader economy," said
Jeff Kleintop, chief invest-


ment strategist for PNC
Wealth Management. "Af-

including the song's
dancers and musicians,
have increased as the labor
market has tightened.
Also, a decline in the hous-
ing market has dampened
demand for luxury goods,
such as gold rings."
Drumming Up Raises or
Milking the Minimum
Wage?
The largest dollar in-
crease this year resulted
from 'rising labor costs -
exceeding the rate of infla-
tion for the first time in
years. According to Phi-
ladanco, the Philadelphia
Dance Company, nine
Ladies Dancing earned
$4,759, 4% more than in
2006, compared to a raise
of 3% for Lords-a-Leaping.
The musicians, Drummers
Drumming and Pipers Pip-
ing, earned 3.4% more


compared with 2005.
Maids-a-Milking, who
are paid the minimum
wage, were the only ser-
vice providers not to see an
increase this year. The fed-
eral minimum wage has
been set at $5.15 per hour
since 1997. Inflation since
1996 has steadily eroded
the purchasing power of
the hourly minimum
wage, which. would be
worth $4.04 in 1996 dollars.
Pear Tree Prices Sky-
rocket; Bird Prices Fly.
Lower
The Partridge's home
saw the, greatest increase of
all the items in the index,
as Pear Tiee prices in-
creased 44% from last year.
"Robust commercial con-
struction is sparking land-
scapers' demand for orna-
mental trees, such as the
species of pear used in the
survey," said Kleintop.


True Loves will find no
increase in the cost of Par-
tridges and most other
birds this year as the cost
of fuel to ship them leveled
off, according to The
Cincinnati Zoo and Botani-
cal Gardens. The excep-
tions were birds purchased
at retail stores.
Like many of the birds,
the price for Gold Rings
was flat compared to last
year, even though the price
of the raw material gold -
rose significantly.
"A slowing residential
real estate market is mak-
ing people feel' less
wealthy, this year and is
dulling demand for luxury
items, like Gold Rings,"
said Kleintop. "Investors
have been buying gold as
an inflation hedge and
prices per ounce remain
much higher than last year.
This may put pressure on


profit margins at retail jew-
elers, who have not been
able to pass along the in-
creased cost to con-
sumers."
Christmas More Expen-
sive than Ever
For Internet-savvy True
Loves, PNC Wealth Man-
agement calculates the cost
of The Twelve Days gifts
purchased on the Web.
This year, the trends iden-
tified in the traditional in-
dex are repeated in the In-
ternet version, with overall
growth of 3.4%, compared
to 3.1% in the traditional
index. Wages are up, with
the Drummers earning al-
most 100% more when
purchased on the Internet
in 2006 compared with an
Internet purchase in 2005.
And, as with the tradition-
al Christmas Price Index,
bird prices are even or, in
some cases, down a bit


from 2005 levels. In gener-
al, Internet prices are high-
er than their non-Internet
counterparts because of
shipping costs.
As part of its annual tra-
dition, PNC Wealth Man-
agement also tabulates the
"True Cost of Christmas,"
which is the total cost of
items gifted by a True Love
who repeats all of the
song's verses. This holiday
season, very generous True
Loves will pay more than
ever before $75,122 for
all 364 items, up from
$72,608 in 2005. This 3.5%
increase is substantially
less than last year's 9.5 per-
cent increase. Kleintop ob-
served that Christmas
Price Index inflation may
reflect trends that led the
Federal Reserve to pause
interest rate hikes this year.

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 21, 2006


As this is the week we cel-
ebrate Christmas, I called
around the White Springs
area and asked for quotes
from some of our citizens
about Christmas means to
them. Here are the responses
I received:

I am very thankful this
time of the year, because of
our Savior. I am thankful all
the time, but especially at
Christmas. Carolyn
Cannon, White Springs
***000
For all the family and
friends to get together and
have a good time, and if you
don't have a place to go on
Christmas, come out to Mor-
gan's Barn. Irene Tuten
Morgan, White Springs
000
Christmas, to me, means
that we set aside this special
day to encourage others that
Jesus is life, hope, and that
He was born on this special
day. Queen Silver Carter,
White Springs
** 00
Christ is the reason for the
season. I like to see young
people enjoy themselves, but
along with presents, fun,
and activities, I like for them
to be told about the "reason
for the season." Honorable
Joseph McKire, Mayor of
White Springs


By Jonathan Banks
Well, the Trojan News is
back once more just as the
Christmas break begins.
This week's discussion is
about the Honor Roll,
Triple A, attendance
drawing, and the Christ-
mas concert. So with that
said I have to go refill my
coffee mug and while I do
that I hope you all enjoy.
Mr. Starr and other
school administrators de-
cided that having new and
old activities for students
who do well in school was
the right thing to do. On
Thursday, Dec. 7, the
Honor Roll activity took
place in the auditorium.
This assembly was held
for approximately 128 stu-
dents who were recog-
nized for earning all A's or
A's and B's on their report
card. Each student re-
ceived a bag of treats
along with a congratula-
tions and hand shake from
Mr. Starr. Another treat
for the students was to
watch a movie, which
happened to be "Ice Age:


00**
Christmas is about sharing
the love of Jesus with others.
We should tell people all
year long that are special to
us, "I love you, and you are
special," but, if we haven't
done that, we should make
an extra effort at Christmas.
Christmas is Christ and
helping others. Ann Dees,
White Springs
**
Christmas means the birth
of our Lord and Savior Jesus
Christ. Shirley Heath, Town
Clerk, White Springs
0**
Christmas means to recog-
nize the birth of Jesus, and it
means love, and that is the
most important thing, be-
cause God is love. Katie G.
Hunter, Belmont (north of
White Springs)

Christmas means sharing,
and God loves us all. Joann
Brown,, Cafeteria Manager,
South Hamilton Elementary
***
Christmas means the birth
of Jesus Christ, our Lord and
Savior. Waylon Bush, Prin-
cipal, South Hamilton Ele-
mentary
***
Christmas means loving
and giving, caring and shar-
ing with family and friends
and celebrating the birth of


The Meltdown."
Not only is there an ac-
tivitv for kids with good
grades, but for those who
have exceptional acade-
mics, attendance, and atti-
tude during the nine
weeks. This assembly is
known as Triple A, and
was held on Friday, Dec.
8, in the auditorium. Stu-
dents in attendance re-
ceived a numbered ticket
for a drawing that made
them eligible to win a
prize. In this activity ap-
proximately 50 students
participated and received
various prizes that totaled
over $500.
Both' of these activities
are held at the end of each
.nine weeks, but there is a
big treat for students with
outstanding attendance!
The students who have ex-
celled in attendance will
have their name placed in
a drawing. The winner
will receive $500 from dol-
lars Mr. Starr. This partic-
ular activity only happens
at the end of each semes-
ter. I'm very thankful that


Jesus Christ. Deborah C.
McMillan, White Springs
native and parent activist at
South, Hamilton Elementary
**
Christmas should be cele-
brated every day, because
every day is a day to cele-
brate the birth of Jesus.
Anith Dye, paraprofession-
al, South Hamilton Elemen-
tary, and lifetime resident of
White Springs

Christmas is a time of
memories memories of
childhood when I was being
raised in Suwannee County.
At that time, we didn't have
a lot of decorations or a lot of
gifts, but we were very
thankful for what we had
and, mostly I thank God for
sending Jesus Christ to be
born." Mary Lou Bullard,
White Springs
** 00
Christmas means that Je-
sus was born and it is a
time for families to get to-
gether and celebrate. Laura
Rachel Bryan, age 11, South
Hamilton Elementary (fifth
grade), White Springs

Christmas means the birth
of Jesus and getting together
with your family and pre-
sents. Conner Hall, age 10,
South Hamilton Elementary
(fifth grade), White Springs

Christmas means Jesus'
birthday and family time.
Casey Davis, age 10, South
Hamilton Elementary, fifth
grade, White Springs

Christmas means that we
were a lost world and that
Jesus came and gave us the
chance for new life, and we
had hope when Jesus was

students who do well in
school get recognized,
and [ hope this continues
in the future.
On Thursday, Dec. 14,
there were Christmas
plays and concerts at
HCHS. The Sigma Delta
Club staged two plays,
Santa Goes on Shike and
Angels, Please Come to Or-
der. Following the plays,
the high school choir per-
formed songs in Spanish,
English and Swahili. Next
on the program, the junior
high choir sang several
songs, including "Silent
Night," which was per-
formed in English, Ger-
man, and Sign language.
The Sigma Delta spon-
sor and Chorus instructor,
Anita Jones, coordinated
the whole production. She
and the students worked
very hard to prepare for
the production. All funds
will go toward expenses
for our choral students to
attend the music competi-
tion held in Orlando in
May. Any donations will
be greatly appreciated.
That's all for the Trojan
News this week, I'm
Jonathan Banks wishing
you all a safe and happy
holiday. I hope you all en-
joyed and until next time,
go Trojans!

Finds high tech way

to help school
By Robin Chapman
When Woody Dillaha was born in 1963, math problems
were still solved with paper and pencil and teachers tracked
the progress of students in something called a grade book.
Today, Floridian Woody Dillaha, 43, is working on the
cutting edge of the new field of data tracking software that
can update a student's progress in "real time." It is some-
thing that could never have been imagined in the pre-com-
puter age.
Dillaha heads Performance Matters, his three-year-old ed-
ucation software company in Florida, while his partner,
James Waters, heads the Performance Matters research and
development offices in Atlanta. After just three years, the
company is already helping two dozen school districts in
eight states crunch their performance data in a way that can
help teachers track the progress of each student and change
tactics to help each student get a better education. Districts
using the tools in Florida include Martin, Hardee, Citrus,
and Indian River counties.
Teacher Holly Herndon of the School District of Indian
River County, noticed by tracking her students with her Per-
formance Matters software that the children were having
difficulty with. a specific reading task. She was then able to
focus on it with her students and dramatically improve their
skills.
The entire school district in Indian River County has seen
an unprecedented improvement in its test scores since it be-
gan using Performance Matters in 2004. The rankings in
seven of its eight grades rose immediately. "We made the
largest one-year gains in the history of this school district,"
says Dr. Fran Adams, Assistant Superintendent for Indian
River County. "And.we couldn't have done it without the
tools provided by Performance Matters."
"Until now, educators relied almost exclusively on state
test score to evaluate student learning," says Dillaha, man-
aging partner of Performance Matters. "Now, with Perfor-
mance Matters, schools and teachers have timely informa-
tion on every student that can be used to guide their instruc-
tion. We are moving our customers from relying on an "au-
topsy" of student failures, to a "prescription" of real-time
instructional medication that can truly make a diffieiice "
In today's 0 otld, school funding can be linked to perfor-
mance, so, administrators are continually looking for tools
that can track and improve their students' success.
"For the U.S. to remain competitive, we must provide a
world class education for our children while making the best
use of tax dollars," says Dillaha. "That is what it's all about
and why I'm so passionate about this company."
For more information, call Woody Dillaha at Performance
Matters 407-645-1800 or on his cell phone at 407-719-4786.
The offices of Performance Matters can be found at 507 N.
New York Avenue, Suite 205, Winter Park, Florida 32789.
Or'email Performance Matters at
wd@performancematters.net.

A Christmas Wish
Our Christmas wish this year is to find loving homes
for all of our flrry friends. We know that this is not possible but we hope that you will think of our
animals first before you look somewhere else for that special friend for your
children, grandparents, husband, wife, or any other loved one who
needs the love and companionship of a
four-legged ball of love.
These animals are ready to give you all the 'love that is in their hearts just for the chance to have a
family to care and love them. All they ask is for the chance to be seen and to show you how much
they can offer to you.
Please come out and visit us to see the variety of dog/puppies, cat/kittens
that are ready to share unconditional love
that is in their hearts.
Merry Christmas from all the animals and volunteers at Suwannee Valley Humane Society.



Bronson urges consumers


to check out health clubs


before signing contract


Florida Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
\ ices Conunissioner Charles H. Bronson
is reminding Florida residents to check
out health clubs before signing any con-
tracts or all the\ might end up losing is
nioney.
Getting in shape is one of the top New
Yeai's resolutions and many people may
be considering buying a gym membership
for a loved one over the holiday. But
Bronson urges consumers to do their
homework and not assume they can can-
cel a contract if theN simply change their
minds about attending a club.
"A gym membership is a great gift, but
it is an investment and buyers should be
sure that it is a gift the recipient will use
before they invest the money," Bronson
said. "Health club contracts are legally
binding like any other contract and re-
quire some thought and investigation."
The Florida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services administers the
Health Studio Law, \vhich provides con-
sumers with some rights but also spells
out their responsibilities. Health clubs
are required to register with the Depart-
, ipnt's,iDiyvisjop of .Consurnqeir.eryices.

be used to repay members if the facility
goes out of business. The refunds are
provided in cases where members pay
prepaid memberships.
In fiscal year 2005-06, the Department
registered 1,948 health clubs, of which
422 were new applications. Halfway
through fiscal year 2006-07, 752 health
clubs have registered, 184 of which are
new applications.
"Unfortunately, many people are so fo-
cused on getting in shape, they sign up -
for a membership without bothering to
read the fine print of a contract," Bronson


said. "But there are issues that are cov-
ered that consumers really need to know.
about from the onset, such as under what.
conditions they can cancel, what activities
are covered in the membership and other
aspects that may be important to the con-
sumer's needs."
The law provides consumers with the
right to cancel a contract for certain rea-
sons including: cancellation within three'
days of signing a contract, exclusive of
holidays and weekends, but it must be .
done in writing; if the facility moves
more than five miles away fromthe origi->'
nal location and fails to provide,. within
30 days. a facility of' qual quality'located
within five miles; if a person becomes
physically unable to use most of the.ser-
vices for wvlich they contracted,_until the
disability ends .
Bronson als& recommends cons.w.ers .
follow these tips before sighing a-dbn-
tract:' ,--
Call the Department's helpline, at 1-
800-HELPFLA (1-800-435-7352) to make.
sure the health studio is'registered and to
check its complaint-history. .

One Thousand and One



Nights at the Phillips


Center Jan. 12, 2007


The State Ballet Theatre of Russia
'will present One Thousand and One
Nights at the Phillips Center Friday,
Jan. 12, 2007, at 7:30 p.m. There
will be a pre-performance discus-
sion with the company at 6:45 p.m.
Based on The Arabian Nights, .
One Thousand and One Nights tells
the story of Shahriyar and
Scheherazade. When Shahriyar, a
mythical king, discovers that his
wife has been unfaithful, he has her
put to death. Believing that all
women are equally unfaithful, he
gives his vizier the order to procure
him a new wife every night. After
spending one night with his bride,
the king has her executed at dawn.
The .king's actions threaten all of
the women of the kingdom until the
cleverand beautiful Scheherazade
volunteers to be the king's next
wife. She strikes a bargain with the
king: he will not put her to death
until she has told him a story. So,
each night, Scheherazade spins a
fantastic tale, stopping with a
cliffhanger at dawn. As
Scheherazade tells the king about
Ali Babba, Aladdin and Sinbad the
Sailor, she not only entertains
Shahriyar, she also prolongs her life
and the lives of all of the women of
the kingdom.
Set to music by Fikret Amirov,
the ballet One Thousand and One
Nights was first staged at the Baku
Theatre of Opera and Ballet in
1979. An outstanding Azerbaijani
composer and one of the leading
representatives of the country's mu-


sical art, Amirov contributed greatly
to the development of its multina- '
tional culture. His music has been
performed often and successfully far
beyond his native Azerbaijan (one .
of the ex-Soviet republics).
His ballets include Nizami. (1973)
as well as One Thousand and One
Nights (often referred to as The
Arabian Nights).
The State Ballet Theatre of Rus-
sia, hailing from Yekaterinburg, was
established in 1912 and is one of the
oldest and most respected ballet
companies in Russia. Along with
the Bolshoi Ballet Theatre, The
Maryinsky (Kirov) Theatre, and the
opera theatre in Novosibirsk, The
Yektaterinburg Opera and Ballet
Theater is one of only four theatres
in all of Russia to attain "Federal
Status."
Since the late 1970s, the theater
has invited internationally-renowned
choreographers and directors, to
stage ballet performances, including
Leonid Jakobson, Konstantin Bo-'
yarsky, Igor Belsky, Natalia Kasatk-
ina and the connoisseur of ballet
history Peter Goussev.
The ballet company's repertory is
one of the richest and most diverse
in all of Russia. In addition to tradi-
tional ballets and new works, it also
performs productions the work of
foreign classical choreographers of
the 20th century. The State Ballet
Theatre of Russia has been regularly
touring since the mid-1980s and has
visited France, Italy, Norway, Den-
mark, Australia, Japan, India, Ko-


rea, Mexico and Chile. The troupe
is headed by the People's Artist of
the USSR Viacheslav Gordeyev,
who previously served as artistic di-
rector and premiere dancer of the
Bolshoi Ballet.

THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO: The Bulgarian State Opera will present The Marriage of Figaro at the Phillips Center in Gainesville Thursday, Jan. 11, 2007 at 7:30 p.m. Photo: Submitted



The Marriage of Figaro at the


Phillips
The Bulgarian State Opera will present
The Marriage of Figaro at the Phillips Center
Thursday, Jan. 11, 2007 at 7:30 p.m. UF Pro-
fessor of Opera Tony Offerle will lead the
pre-performance discussion at 6:45 p.m.
The Marriage of Figaro is based on the
play by Beaumarchais. Although Beaumar-
chais's play was originally banned for its sat-
irization of the aristocracy, The Marriage of
Figaro has become the sixth most produced
opera in North America.
Written by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart,
with text by Lorenzo de Pohte, the opera
premiered at the Burgtheater in Vienna in
1786. The production was so successful that
the duo would pair up again to create Don
Giovanni and Cos' fan tutte.
A sequel to The Barber of Seville,
Mozart's opera follows the events of a single
"mad" day at the home of Count
Alvaviva. Figaro, the Count's valet, is en-
gaged to be married to Susanna, the Count-
ess's maid. The Count has been making ad-,.
vances towards Susanna, intent on exercising
droit de seigneur or the right of a feudal lord
-.to bed a servant girl on her wedding night.
Figaro, Susanna and the Countess conspire
to embarrass the Count and expose his infi-
delity.
Meanwhile, Dr. Bartolo and Marcellina,
his old housekeeper, arrive. Figaro had '
promised to marry Marcellina in exchange


for the cancellation of an old debt, and Mar-
cellina is intent on making sure that Figaro
follows through on his promise. The plot
gets thicker as intrigues are exposed, mistak-
en identities are revealed and love is re-dis-
covered. The Marriage of Figaro has all of
the elements of a contemporary soap opera,
set against the rich music of Mozart.
The Bulgarian State Opera, rooted in the
great tradition of Bulgarian opera, consis-
tently presents unique productions that com-
bine the best of the opera worlds of Bulgaria
and all of Europe. The performances of the
Bulgarian State Opera are co-productions of
the major opera houses of Bulgaria, where
many eminent singers have started their in-
ternational careers including Ghena Dimitro-
va, Stefka Evstatieva, Vesselina Kasarova
and Nikolai Gyaurov.
The Bulgarian State Opera was formerly
known as the legendary Opera Verdi
Europa. After convening in August 2005,
however, the .. .
Bulgarian
Parliament
and the Min-
istry of Cul-
ture re-
named Opera i
Verdi Europa
as the State
Company of


Bulgaria and bestowed upon them the title
The Bulgarian State Opera Company.
The company collaborates not only with
Bulgarian opera theaters and symphony or-
chestras, but also with opera houses from
Bucharest (Romania), Budapest (Hungary),
Chis,ina"u (Moldovia), Kiev (Ukraine), The-
atre Nemirovich-Danchenko (Russia) and
many others.
The Marriage of Figaro is conducted by
Krassimira Kostova and Jose-Luis Pareja,
with stage direction by Prof. Pavel
Gerdzhikov.
The Bulgarian State Opera's The Marriage
of Figaro is sponsored by Davis Monk &
Company.
Tickets are: $50, front orchestra and mez-
zanine; $50, mid-orchestra; $40, rear orches-
tra; $35 balcony. A limited number of $10
student tickets are available. Students may
purchase one ticket with a valid student ID
at the Phillips Center Box Office or the Uni-


versity Box Office. Rush tickets (in the bal-
cony) may be available day of show for $10.
Tickets are available by calling the Phillips
Center Box Office at 352-392-ARTS (352-
392-2787) or 800-905-ARTS (800-905-
2787), toll-free within Florida, or by calling
Ticketmaster at 904-353-3309. Orders may
also be faxed to 352-846-1562. Tickets are
also available in person at the Phillips Center
Box Office, University Box Office at the
University of Florida Reitz Union and all,
Ticketmaster outlets; and on the Web at
www.ticketmaster.com. Cash checks, Visa
and MasterCard are accepted. Group tickets
are also available.
The Phillips Center Box Office is open
Monday-Saturday, noon to 6 p.m. and two

fice will be closed Dec. 21-Jan. 2, 2007, re-

Crist announces



settlement



agreement



with AOL
Attorney General Charlie Crist today announced' that his of-
fice has reached an agreement with America Online, resolving
consumer complaints about billing issues and membership
charges. In addition to making consumer restitution, the com-
pany has agreed to forgive consumer debts stemming from
the issues involved in Crist's investigation.
Crist's Economic Crimes Division began investigating the
internet provider in September 2005 after receiving more than
1,000 consumer complaints. The investigation focused on
several areas, including consumer complaints that cancella-
tion requests were not honored, former accounts were reacti-
vated without consumers' authorization, charges were im-
posed for "spin-off accounts," and consumers were being
mistakenly billed for AOL services on their phone bills. AOL
assisted investigators in identifying
Numerous consumers who were harmed by these practices.
"Consumers should not have to keep looking over their shoul-
ders to make sure mega-corporations aren't trying to take ad-
vantage of them," said Crist. "This agreement is an important
step toward protecting our citizens from consumer fraud."
Under the agreement, AOL will pay consumer restitution or
otherwise forgive outstanding balances to consumers identi-
fied during the course of this investigation as having been po-
tentially affected by AOL consultant misconduct, as well as to
consumers who have filed complaints with the Florida Attor-
ney General's Office prior to or during the investigation. In
addition to providing restitution to these consumers, AOL has
agreed to provide refunds, credits and debt forgiveness to all
eligible Florida consumers who file a complaint with the
company. Consumers are also encouraged to file claims with
Crist's office, and can obtain a claim form by clicking on the
AOL Settlement icon on the Attorney General's website at
www.myfloridalegal.com.

Diego and Celeste help'dad

By Nicole Duarte
With every holiday season
comes the challenge of
finding the perfect gifts for
your loved'ones.
Finding a gift for dad can


already. have let' face it,
he really doesn't need any
more neckties he won't wear
or another sweater that goes
into the closet until the next
holiday season.


wash dad's car together and
then use The Absorber to
dry it.
Getting everyone involved
and working together helps
turn the chore of washing a
car into something fun.
Sergio and Diego take on
wash and rinse duties, then
quickly dry the car like pros.
With its unique pore -.' ,
structure that acts like a
'moisture magnet, The
Absorber picks up more
water than any other drying
cloth, without leaving any
lint behind. It's also softer
on paint surfaces than a
towel or chamois, so dad
won't worry about scratches
I or stripping off the Wax.
Diego and Celeste think
that their dad will also like
all the different ways he can
use The Absorber, too: It's
great for sopping up those
inevitable holiday spills in
the kitchen and for drying
off their dog after a bath.
Sergio, who lives in '
southern California, can also
use it as a towel after early
morning surfing. Knowing
most dads, they'll find a few
more clever uses of their
own.
T he product is easy to
wring out, Just a light twist
and it goes back to 100.
percent drying capability, so
you don't have loadsof wet
towels to wash. It's also
reusable, long-lasting and
easy to'store in a convenient
plastic storage tube.
Mom helped the kids
understand that cars require
frequent cleaning to protect


the paint finish from
oxidation, acid rain, bugs
and other debris, so they
plan on h aving "family fun
washes" throughout the
year.
For touching up in
between washes, though,
there's a handy little
stocking stuffer called The
Glosser a disposable, -
wax-filled microfiber wipe
that removes surface dirt.
applies wax, and enhances
shine Without scratching the
vehicle's finish. It's so 'easy
to use, you don't even have
to uncoil the garden hose, so
kids of almost any age, like
four-year-old Celeste, can
help dad keep his- car
looking great all year long.
The Olosser comes in a
resealable package thatlits
nicely-in the glove box or
under the car seat so mom
and dad can use it, too,
when'they're on the road or
picking up someone special.
To be sure that the. interior
of the car doesn't suffer
from neglect, throw in The
Dash Gear cleaning towel.
Designed specifically for.
instrument panels and
electronics; it is constructed
of an ultra-fine microfiber'
that lifts dust, dirt, and
grime without scratching
surfaces or requiring liquid;
cleaners.
These items make.
excellent stocking stuffers
611 are inexpensive and
easy to find. For more

can be a challenge to help
the kids find an inexpensive
gift that they can give to .
dad. It's got to be practical
and something he doesn't


I don't know if you heard
this from your parents, but
mine always told me that the
best gifts are gifts that are
really personal: When I was
younger, they loved the
cards I made them; as I got
older, they really valued
gifts that took some effort
and thought on my part. It
took me a long time to
figure out that the best gifts
come frorii, th& heart and
,exhibit kindness in action,
like the gift of helping.
This year, families will
no doubt be looking for gift
ideas that combine the best
of All options: inexpensive
gifts that the kids can afford
(and won't break the bank
for mom, either), that are
useful, the family can enjoy
together, and get the kids
involved helping dad.
Diego and Celeste would
like to do something nice
fot their dad, Sergio, as
well as spend time with
him. So they've decided to
give him The Absorber,
along with handmade,
personalized "car wash gift
certificates" they'll all
