Kidnapping, battery: Investigation continues


27-year-old woman brutalized

for years, say authorities


Staff
Four family members of a 27-
year-old Hamilton County
woman have been arrested and
charged with kidnapping and
aggravated battery after what
appears to be years of violent


mistreatment, according to Sher-
iff Harrell Reid.
The woman, who has not been
named due to the nature of the
crimes, managed to leave the
family house in the area of
White Springs on Monday, Oct.


22, after the latest in a series of
savage beatings. The victim
made her way to a home nearby
and rescue was called. She re-
mained in a local hospital with
serious injuries Wednesday,
Reid said.
Arrested and charged with
kidnapping and aggravated bat-

were Martha Irene Turn-
er, 46; Jessica Lynn Turn-
er, 23; Johnny Dale
Nichols, 43; and a juve-
nile, according to Reid.
The three adults remained
in jail as of Tuesday, Nov.
20, without bond. The
youth was turned over to
the Division of Juvenile
Justice in Gainesville.
According to the victim,


Crash


she was repeatedly bound
and beaten by members
of her family as punish-
ment, Reid said. After the
victim left the home, the
family relocated to Lake
City. Search warrants
were served on residences
in Hamilton and Colum-
bia counties.
"In my 20 years as sher-
iff and 10 additional years
as a deputy, I have never
seen the amount of physi-


cal abuse that was en-
dured by this victim,"
said Reid. This sentiment
was echoed by longtime
Florida Department of
Law Enforcement investi-
gators. It is believed the
abuse started while this
victim was a minor and
has gone on for many
years.
"We believe the abuse
to be both physical and
sexual," said Sheriff Reid.


"The victim was more or
less a prisoner in the
home in which she lived.
She was beaten some-
times as many as two or
three times a day for not
performing menial tasks.
We also have some evi-
dence that she may have
been bound and gagged
while these beatings were
taking place."
Four children were re-
moved from the home by


the Florida Department of
Children and Families
and placed in foster care,
according to Reid.
"I would like to extend
my sincere appreciation
to Columbia County Sher-
iff Bill Gootee, the Colum-
bia County Sheriff's Of-
fice and FDLE Resident
Agent in Charge Dennis
Norred of the Live Oak
Field office, as well as the
FDLE Tallahassee Mobile


Crime Unit for their help \
and cooperation in this
extremely complicated
case," Sheriff Reid said.
Investigators from the
Hamilton County Sheriff's r
Office, the Columbia
County Sheriff's Office,
the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement and the
State Attorney's Office
continue to follow addi-
tional leads.


Defensive eating for the holidays

Patel's car struck Parker's
car, which then left the
roadway and crashed
through the fence on the
.property of 504 SE 2nd
Ave., the report states.
No one was injured in
the accident, including
two passengers in Patel's
car, according to the re-
port. Patel's 2007 Honda,


which is owned by Pank
AJ Patel, suffered about
$3,000 damage. Parker
was charged with failure
to yield right of way, the
report states. There was
about $1,500 damage to
her 1998 Mercury.
There was approximate-
ly $500 damage to the
fence, which was located
on property owned by Pe-
ter Laga, the report stated.

brated Veterans Day with
an outstanding program
for their student body and
local veterans. The NHE
Chorus sung a number of
patriotic songs and every-
one joined in the Pledge of
Allegiance and the Star
Spangled Banner.
Local veterans were rec-
ognized and thanked for
their service. Williams


was the guest speaker and
spoke about local veterans
and their contributions to
the nation. The program
was followed by a won-
derful reception.
A special thanks to the
staff, faculty and students
of NHE for a great pro-
gram. Also a special
thanks to the Hamilton
AFJROTC Color Guard for
their outstanding support
of community activities.


You know it's coming.
Everywhere you turn,
there are sweets and treats
and indulgences, next to
the checkout register, in
the breakroom, on desks
at work and on every end
table and countertop at
every home you visit.
When you're not having
something waved under
your nose, you're rushing
around with shopping, er-
rands and preparations,
probably not taking the
time you need to get a
proper meal:
But then during the hol-
iday season, big, abun-
dant, sit-down dinners are
likely to make their way
into the schedule pf even
the most harried and hur-
ried among us.
With all that to contend
with, many people find
the temptations too much
to bear and simply give up
on healthy eating altogeth-
er during the holidays. But
don't surrender. .If you
recognize going in that
these challenges will be
there, and arm yourself ac-
cordingly, it needn't be
the fight of your life just
getting through to Janu-
ary.
Perhaps the most impor-
tant attitude adjustment is
to be sure that you're
thinking of yourself not as


a person who is trying to
lose weight or even some-
one trying to avoid junk.
Think of yourself as a per-
son who eats well and
makes healthy choices.
When you walk in to
work first thing in the
morning and you're faced
with a plate of frosted can-
dy-cane cookies, just rec-
ognize that healthy-eating
people such as yourself
just don't eat that sort of
thing for breakfast. Smile,
nod and keep walking.
If someone is particular-
ly insistent about trying to
ply you with sweets or
goodies, be ready with a
polite way to decline. But
don't say, "I'm dieting."
That's only going to in-
voke sympathy and good-
natured encouragement to
live a little. Remember.
that you're trying to eat
better because you want to
live a little longer.
When you're faced with
that big sit-down meal at
Grandma's, plan in ad-
vance to not get so full
that you're uncomfortable.
Sure, the food is delicious
and evokes all sorts of
wonderful nostalgia, but
you don't need to overeat
to enjoy the memories.
Chew slowly, savor each
bite, really appreciate
those special dishes. It's a
much better way to enjoy
them than doing the stuff-
and-suffer.
Start by taking small
servings to begin with.
Many of us were raised to
"clean our plates," and we
feel. obligated to finish


whatever is served,
whether or not Mom is
watching. But if you're
full, stop. That mountain
of mashed potatoes isn't
Mt. Everest, and you don't
have to eat it just "because
it's there."
Another trick to help
slow the overeating at hol-
iday parties is to try for
buffet serving rather than
putting all the food on the
dining table. We actually
recommend this to pa-
tients year round, so that
when they're at home,
they fill the plates from
the stove and bring them
to the table. That's because
repeated studies have
shown that if the food is
within arm's reach, we'll
eat it. But if we've got to
go and get it, we are less
likely to have more.
Even a more formal
meal can include service
from a buffet away from
the main table. And if
you're a guest, no matter
how your host has
arranged to serve, after
you've finished eating .a
plate, give it a moment to
settle in before going for
more.
.It takes about 30 min-7
utes for the hormones that
signal satiety to get the
message, from the stomach
to the brain. Don't keep
packing just because your
brain doesn't know your
tummy is done.
That "arm's-reach" de-
fense is useful for snacks,
as well. Look for a seat
further away from the
bowl of chips and, don't


stand next to the tray of
hors d'oeuvres when.
.you're chatting at the of-
fice party.
There are a few other
simple defenses you can
employ that will serve you
equally well at a holiday
party or if you hit the dri- #
ve through in the midst of "
your shopping.
Hold the sauce. You can
knock 100 calories or more
off most sandwiches or
salads, not to mention that t
pile of potatoes, by skip-
ping the special sauce,
dressing, or gravy.
Skip the soda. A wide
array of sodas on the buf-
fet table may look hos-
pitable, but regular soda
will add hundreds of calo-
ries to a meal. A nice glass
of ice water goes beauti-
fully with any holiday
meal; unsweetened ice tea
or diet sodas are a decent
second choice.
Don't super-size. Stick
to reasonable-sized por-
tions. Holidays are a great
time for appreciating the
abundance in our lives,
but we can do that with-
out upgrading to the. su-
per-size meal, either in the
drive-through or at
Grandma's holiday buffet!
Remind yourself that
you don't have to eat .
everything you're served,
that you can take small
servings and have more
later, and that it's okay to
say no, even if more is of-
fered. Holiday dining
should be a pleasure, not
an annual experience in
extreme eating.


Let us help you make your dreams
come true. Do you own your own
land? We will build you a custom log
home. starting as low as $99.000.

Being Thankful


by Bryan Golden
Thanksgiving is much
more than a big meal with
family and friends. It's a
time to reflect on, and be
thankful for, all of the good
things you have. It's impor-
tant to be grateful, not just
on Thanksgiving, but each
and every day. Rather than
lamenting what you feel is
lacking in your life, begin
each new day by develop-
ing an attitude of gratitude.
Take inventory of your
blessings and you will be
surprised at just how much
you have to be thankful for.
If you have enough to eat,
a place to live, a way to get
around, people-.who care


about you, or people you
care about, then you are
wealthy. If you lack any of
these elements, you must
still be grateful for what
you do have, while striving
to obtain whatever is ab-
sent.
Focus on all the positive
aspects of your life. Take
nothing for granted. Every
morning, recharge your ap-
preciation. Be happy for
everything there is, not up-
set over what you feel is
missing.
Dreams of the future
shouldn't diminish appreci-
ation for the present. If all,
you do is concentrate on
what you want, you won't

enjoy today. Don't be jeal-
ous of others; what they do
or have has no bearing on
you.
You can feel bitter or re-
sentful for a variety of rea-
sons. Perhaps you feel
something is missing from
your life, things aren't go-
ing your way, or you have
been treated unfairly. You
may wonder, "Why do
these things always happen
to me?"
Life's problems tend to
dominate your thoughts,
turning your focus to what
you feel is wrong. You may
start to resent those who ap-
pear to be better off. You're
apt to dwell on things you
think would make your life
better if you had them. If
only you had more money,
more time, a bigger house, a
different car, a different job,
a different boss, had picked
a different career, etc.
Once your attitude be-
comes one of deficiency in-
stead of abundance and ap-
preciation, you can become
overwhelmed by feelings of
frustration and feel like a
victim. As this hapF ens, a
consuming vicious cycle
starts.
Being bitter or resentful
blows situations out of pro-
portion. People who are bit-
'ter frequently find that their
situations deteriorate and
their mental and physical
health decays. .
It's difficult, if not impos-
sible, to achieve your goals
while you are bitter or re-
sentful. Regardless of what
challenges might befall you,


bitterness makes finding so-
lutions much more elusive.
There is no point to feel-
ing bitter since it accom-
plishes nothing, harms you
and makes things worse.
Filling yourself with grati-
tude on a daily basis makes
you feel good, while dri-
ving out negative feelings.
Begin your practice of
gratitude each morning as
soon as you wake. Every
day is a great day. If you
have any doubts, try miss-
,ing one. Take inventory of
everything, no matter how
small or seemingly insignif-
icant, that is good in your
life.
If it helps, make a written
list of all the things you are
grateful for. Read your list
every day. As you do this,
you will build and reinforce
your attitude of gratitude.
Don't waste any time with
what you feel you don't
have.
Keep things in perspec-
tive. Consider all the people
who have overcome diffi-
culties far worse than
yours. Don't be consumed
by your problems, there is
always a solution. Main-
taining an attitude of grati-
tude allows your mind to
devise'a resolution for your
circumstances.
Make everyday a day of
Thanksgiving and you will
be amazed how much bet-
ter your life will become.

H L HEAL.,MINUTE:



Do you ever sit down at the TV after a long day at work and say, "I'm
just too tired!" "Just let me sit down for a few more minutes!" And a
few 'more' minutes turn into 30 minutes and that turns into hours? If
this is you, I want you to seriously think about your health: for just one
minute. When trying to incorporate activity into your daily schedule,
sometimes, it's hard. Sure it seems we're busy from sun-up to sun-
down but please TAKE TIME OUT FOR YOURSELF. Just a little
walk to get started. Walk with the kids, walk with your spouse or best
friend, even the dog. Just 15 minutes a day, and if you can, do that
twice a day; and once you get going, you'll be amazed at how much
better you'll feel. So, start today. Take care of yourself. Do something
for you. You deserve it and you'll feel great doing it! Just Do
Something!

P-Ai, TrS- oP E.... "-- .F


Even though Thanksgiv-
ing is an American holiday,
did you know that the tra-
dition of celebrating the
harvest is not a new
thing? The ancient Greeks
celebrated a harvest festi-
val called Thesmosphoria
each autumn. The festival
lasted for three days, and
the ancient Greeks gave of-
ferings to the goddess
Demeter, the goddess of
corn..
Jewish families celebrate
a harvest festival called
Sukkoth, which lasts for
eight days. The Jewish peo-
ple build small huts of


branches which recall the
tabernacles of their ances-
tors. These huts are con-
structed as temporary shel-
ters, as the branches are not
driven into the ground and
the roof is covered with fo-
liage which is spaced to let
the light in. Inside the huts
fruits and vegetables are
hung. On the first two
nights of Sukkoth, the fam-
ilies eat their meals in the
huts under the evening
sky. Sukkoth is named for
the huts (succots) that
Moses and the children of
Israel lived in as they wan-
dered the desert for 40


years before they reached
the Promised Land.
Sukkoth has been celebrat-
ed for over 3,000 years.
The first American
Thanksgiving was celebrat-
ed during the autumn of
1621 by the Pilgrims and
their native American
friends near Plymouth,
Mass. The holiday was cel-
ebrated to give thanks to
God for His many bless-
ings. Today, we should
keep in mind the spirit of
the Pilgrim celebration, as
we celebrate with those we
hold dear.
As we celebrate this, my
favorite holiday of the en-
tire year, I wish all my
readers a very happy
Thanksgiving. Thanksgiv-
ing is sometimes the over-
looked holiday in terms of
commercial appeal. I love
everything about the holi-
day including the food I
never ate a turkey I didn't
like, and I really love the
left over turkey the day af-
ter on a turkey sandwich


better than I like turkey
and dressing. Some people
swear by fried turkey,
smoked turkey, and I could
go on and on I just like
mine baked with plenty of
good, moist cornbread
dressing and giblet gravy,
and I don't want a lot of
fancy cranberry preserves
made with oranges, nuts,
etc.., I just like the jellied
cranberry sauce. one can
buy in a can my favorite. I
know each of you have
Thanksgiving favorites.
My favorite Thanksgiv-
ing dessert is pecan pie or
sweet potato pie no
pumpkin for me. Wherever
and with whomever you
spend Thanksgiving and
whether you watch the
Macy's Day Thanksgiving
Day Parade or football
games or just visit, I hope
you enjoy the beauty and
bounty of Thanksgiving!
Let's eat!
Lake City will celebrate
their Festival of Lights on
Friday, Nov. 23 and Satur-


day, Nov. 24. I hope many
will avail themselves to go
over and celebrate. The cel-
ebration will feature a
downtown festival, Christ-
mas parade and many oth-
er events.
Also, James Cornett and
family will celebrate their
Suwannee Lights Festival
at the Spirit of the Suwan-
nee Music Park beginning
on Saturday, Nov. 24. This
is a beautiful event that is
reasonably priced, and the
entire family can enjoy it.
Can you believe, that
someone actually paid $23
million dollars for that
huge hanging heart sculp-
ture done by Michael
Koons. It was the most
money ever paid for a piece
of art by a living artist. I am
telling you 'all that there are
some folks with more mon-
ey than sense. The artist,
Koons, I am sure is laugh-
ing all the way to the bank.
There is never a Thanks-
giving that passes that I
don't remember my wild
ride a few years ago at the
Bellville Christmas parade
with Brenda Franklin, Lau-
ra Leigh, and, I believe,
Elizabeth Lewis was riding
with us. The children were
not concerned at all, but
when the horse did his "jit-
ferbug" and jumped the
ditch towards the end of
the parade, I was con-
cerned, and, afterward, if I
had been in possession of a
blue- valium about the size
of a hubcap, I would have
taken it to calm me
down. Brenda has laughed
through the years about it,
and I will always be thank-
ful for a special Thanksgiv-
ing memory.
This year, Thanksgiving
will fall on the 44th an-
niversary of the death of
President John F. Kennedy.
He was assassinated in
Dallas, Tex., on Nov. 22,


Five ways to

Hdliday shopping is not
easy bn the feet. Not only
are y6u trekking from store
to stdre, but if you have a
long ist of presents to buy,
that f1our-long errand you
intended easily turns into
an all-day affair. At the end
of the day, you bring home
a few, unwanted gifts of
your own: foot pain and

1963. Most people, my age
and older, remember'
where they were and what
they were doing when they
received the news that
President Kennedy had
been shot and subsequent-
ly died. I remember watch-
ing the funeral services on
television (black and
white) for hours on end. It
seemed that the entire na-
tion came to stand still dur-,
ing those several days in
November. A sad time in
the life of our nation.
Our sympathy is extend-
ed to the family of
Quaimee Russ, Jack-
sonville. Quaimee died
tragically this past
week. Quaimee spent most
of her life growing up in
the home of her maternal
grandparents, Stanley and
Viola Williams, White
Springs. She attended,
South Hamilton Elemen-
tary School and Hamilton
County High School. Fu-
neral services were con-
ducted from the auditori-
um of South Hamilton Ele-
mentary on Saturday, Nov.
17, at 1 p.m. Interment fol-
lowed at Eastside Memori-
al Cemetery. The family
has the prayers and sympa-
thy of our community.
Friday, Nov. 23, will be
the busiest Christmas
shopping day of the year. If
'you decide to get out there
amongst them, do be care-
ful on the road. The day af-
ter Thanksgiving officially
begins the Christmas sea-'
son.
Quote for the
week: "Give thanks to the
Lord, call on His name;
make known among the
nations what He has
done." I Chronicles 16:8.
Have a good week and a
happy Thanksgiving,
Hamilton County
I love you.

day shopping
The American Podiatric
Medical Association
(APMA) estimates that the
average person takes about
8,000 to 10,000 steps a day,
especially when on the
hunt for that perfect gift.
To help shoppers get back
on their feet, the APMA of-
fers five holiday foot fixes:
Massage your feet. This
.will help release tension,
increase circulation and re-
juvenate the skin.
Soothe your soles. Soak
your feet for at least five
minutes in a container
filled with warm water. Pat
dry and apply lotion to hy-
drate your feet.
Elevate legs. Lift your
legs above your heart
while lying down to help
reduce swelling.
Rotate ankles. Cup the
foot under the back portion
of the heel to brace the foot
and leg; turn slowly at the
ankle five times. This
loosens the ankle joint and
relaxes your feet.
Point your toes. While
standing, do toe raises, toe
points and toe curls for five
seconds; repeat 10 times.
This alleviates toe cramps
and strengthens calf mus-
cles.

Jasper Legals
(1) Increases the homestead exemption by ex-
empting the assessed value between $50,000
and S75,000 This exemption does not apply to
school district taxes.
(2) Provides for the transfer of accumulated
Save-Our-Homes benefits. Homestead prop-
erty owners will be able to transfer their Save-
Our-Homes benefit to a new homestead with-
in 1 year and not more than 2 years after re-
linquishing their previous homestead; except,
if this revision is approved by the electors in
January of 2008 and if the new homestead is
established on January 1, 2008, the previous
homestead must have been relinquished in
2007. If the new homestead has a higher just
value than the previous one, the accumulated
benefit can be transferred; if the new home-
stead has a lower just value, the amount of
benefit transferred will be reduced. The trans-
ferred benefit may not exceed $500,000. This
provision applies to all taxes.
(3) Authorizes an exemption from property
taxes of $25,000 of assessed value of tangible
personal property. This provision applies to all
taxes
(4) Limits the assessment increases for spec-
ified nonhomestead real property to 10 per-
cent each year. Property will be assessed at
just value following .an improvement, as de-
fined by general law, and may be assessed at
just value following a change of ownership or
control if provided by general law. This limita-
tion does not apply to school district taxes.
This limitation is repealed effective January 1,
2019, unless renewed by a vote of the electors
in the general election held in 2018.

Further, this revision:
a. Repeals obsolete language on the home-
stead exemption when it was less than
$25,000 and did not apply uniformly to proper-
ty taxes levied by all local governments.
b. Provides for homestead exemptions to be
repealed if a future constitutional amendment
provides for assessment of homesteads "at
less than just value" rather than as currently
provided "at a specified percentage" of just
value.
c. Schedules the changes to take effect upon
approval by the electors and operate retroac-
tively to January 1, 2008, if approved in a spe-
cial election held on January 29, 2008, or to
take effect January 1, 2009, if approved jn the
general election held in November of 2008.
The limitation on annual assessment increas-
es for specified real property shall first apply to
the 2009 tax roll if this revision is approved in
a special election held on January 29, 2008,
or shall first apply to the 2010 tax roll if this re-
vision is approved in the general election held
in November of 2008.

ARTICLE VII
FINANCE AND TAXATION

SECTION 3. Taxes; exemptions.--
(a) All property owned by a municipality and
used exclusively by it for municipal or public
purposes shall be exempt from taxation. A mu-
nicipality, owning property outside the munici-
pality, may be required by general law to make
payment to the taxing unit in which the prop-
erty is located. Sudh portions of property as
are used predominantly for educational, liter-
ary, scientific, religious or charitable purposes
may be exempted by general law from taxa-
tion.
(b) There shall be exempt from taxation, cu-
mulatively, to every head of a family residing in
this state, household goods and personal ef-

Turkey trivia


A male turkey is called a
tom, a female is a hen, and
a youngster is a poult. A
group of turkeys is called a
rafter. The loose skin below
a turkey's chin is called a
wattle. The warts on the
wattle are called the carun-
cles'. Because the wild
turkey is quick to defend it-
self and fight against all
predators, Ben Franklin
wanted it, rather than the
bald eagle, to be the symbol
of the United States.


The domestic tom can
weigh up to 50 pounds, the
domestic hen up to 16
pounds. The wild tom can
weigh up to 20 pounds, the
wild hen up. to 12 pounds.
The average person in
the United States will eat 17
pounds of turkey this year,
compared with 9 pounds
for the average Canadian.
The top turkey-produc-
ing state' in the United
States is Minnesota, with 47
million turkeys a year.

Jennings News


by Samantha Prueter
I've been told stories of a
booming town. Did you
know that about 90 years
ago we had a population of
1,200 people that support-
ed two banks, three cafes,
and other businesses for a
grand total of 36 different
businesses?
Unfortunately, times
have changed. The onset of
, the boll weevils and the
- are two of the major causes


that have lead people away
from Jennings. Everything
has a season and. it just
might be our season of re-
newing. Jennings has come
to a crossroad. In one direc-
tion lies a barren desert
while the other lends it
hand to a bustling small
town.
The Jennings Park on US
41 is going to be getting a
new look. A fishing pond,
streetlights, and other
items will be added over


the next year or so.
The first public hearing
took place for the rezoning
of 700+ acres of land on CR
143. There was very little
input from the community.
If you would like to know
what is going on in your
town, come to the town
council meetings on the
first Tuesday of the month.
North Florida Paws is lo-
cated at 940 Oak Street in
Jennings. You may contact
Katie Rooney for more in-


formation (497-3745). The
following statement has
been taken from their web-
site NorthFloridaPaws.org:
North Florida Paws is an
all volunteer, non-profit,
IRS tax-exempt corporation
whose mission is to end an-
imal suffering from abuse,
neglect, and/or homeless-
ness through the following
programs: spay/neuter pet
animals, especially for lim-
ited-income pet owners,
education (with special fo-


cus on schools and family
dog training), support res-
cue groups in North Cen-
tral Florida through the
North Florida Animal Al-
liance, and promote adop-
tion.
A word from the law.
Don't turn up that radio!
The city is adopting a new
ordinance. You will soon
find yourself paying a fine


for violating the noise ordi-
nance. It is in the process of
being written and will soon
be implemented.
If you have any com-
ments, birthdays, or special
happenings in Jennings
then feel free to submit the
information to saman-
thaprueter@alltel.net. May
God bless you and have a
great week!.

Hamilton County's Service Directory


Sometimes a, a princ-
pal, you feel like you have
been beaten down, kicked
around, and someone
pulled you through a knot-
hole. However, upon occa-
sion, you have some really
great days. This week was
a combination of those
aforementioned scenarios,
but in the grand scheme of
things the week ended
with a rewarding and relu-
venating experience.
On Wednesday. Nov. 6,
South Hamilton Elemen-
tary school honored the
veterans from the White
Springs, area with a lun-
cheon and a parade. So
many emotions ran
through your spirit, it was
hard to keep up with them.
Most of all, it was a great
time to pay tribute to the
American soldier who has
so faithfully fulfilled hius
duty to his country with
such honor, courage and
dignity. I recently read a
quote by an unknown au-
thor which said, "Courage
is fear that has said its
prayers." Amen to that.
Mike Williams, PCS em-
ployee and US Army re-
htree, 'was the guest speak-
er. He gave a very inspir-
ing and thought provoking
message. Mike, we appre-


date your willingness to
speak to the veterans and
we also thank you for your
military service. After the
luncheon, the parade and
cool fall air refreshed our
spirit and our pride in the
military men and women
of this great county. All in
all, it was a great day!
On Friday, Nov. 9,
SHE's Student Choir
opened the 55th annual
Stephen Foster Cultural
Center's Folk Festival. It
was an outstanding perfor-
mance. Theresa Cameron,
Hamilton County music
instructor, sang the Na-
tional Anthem and it made
my hair stand on end. She
also sang "Old Folks at
Home" and that was an ex-
cellent performance as
well.
Thanks to Delores
Howell who coordinated
both events. We also
would like to thank every-
one who assisted in each or
both events for without
your help it would not
have been possible. And
by the way, the SHE stu-
dents not only gave a great
performance, but they pre-
sented themselves to oth-
ers with character and dig-
niht. We are very proud of
them (as we always are).

Congratulations to Chad
Billington and Katy Bur-
nam for being selected as
the Homecoming King and
Queen! It's awesome to
note that both of these stu-
dents are high academic
achievers as well being ac-
tive in sports, clubs and or-
ganizations.
Jane Lowe's World His-
tory classes and Jennifer
Green's English II classes
have been studying the Re-
naissance at HCHS. Mrs.
Lowe's classes learned
about the time period, its
characteristics, and the im-
portant people of the time.
They viewed artwork and
inventions that were creat-
ed during the Renaissance.
To study the Renaissance
in English, students read a
play written by William ,
Shakespeare during the
time period. They read


Julius Caesar. To bring all
of their studies to a close,
students created posters
that illustrated the impor-
tant aspects of Julius Cae-
sar. The posters included a
character map, an original
"song" that summarized
each act, and a group
choice. Each group was
asked to illustrate and dis-
cuss their favorite part of
their Renaissance studies.
Two students, Rachel
Vann and Brooke Ross,
were recognized by Mrs.
Green for doing an out-
standing poster project.
How do we help stu-
dents improve their read-
ing and math scores on the
Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test?
At HCHS, all seventh
through 12 grade students
who scored a Level 1 on the


Spring 2007 FCAT reading
and/or math or who didn't
pass the Grade 10 FCAT
are placed in remediation
courses for reading and/or
math. These courses are in
addition to their regular
academic classes in lan-
guage arts/English and
math. For example, a ninth
grader may be in English I,
Algebra IA, Intensive
Reading and Intensive
Math. While the Intensive
Reading and Intensive
Math courses aren't subject
area credits, they are cred-
its which count toward
graduation.
In their remedial courses,
students are regularly tak-
en to the computer lab to
work on Compass Learn-
ing or FCAT Explorer.
Teachers of these courses
formulate an individual


- 12


improvement plan for each
student and utilize specific
texts and materials in the
classroom.
Since the FCAT tests Sun-
shine State Standards,
every teacher on campus is
providing instruction for
FCAT success. Attendance
is vitally important to your
child's educational success.
Please help us teach them
by having them in school
every day!
How do we know our
students are making
progress on Sunshine State
Standards and the FCAT?
The Florida Department of
Education calls it "progress
monitoring" and it is re-
quired in reading for all
Level 1 and 2 students.
Grades seventh through
12th all Level 1 and Level 2
students are given the DI-


BELS Oral Reading Fluen-
cy (ORF). The. student
reads two "probes" for one
minute each. As the stu-
dent reads orally the test
administrator marks errors.
At the end of a minute, the
student is told to stop read-
ing. The score is figured
based on the total words
read minus the errors.
Once a score is achieved for
each "probe" the two
scores are averaged togeth-
er and that is the ORF for
the student.
The assessment is admin-
istered three times during
the school year Septem-
ber, January and April.
Once the assessment is giv-
en then the student is iden-
tified as High Risk, Moder-
ate Risk or Low Risk.
Have a great Thanksgiv-
ing holiday.

Beautiful pumpkins are a

glorious symbol of the season

and a. key ingredient in many
of our favorite recipes.
Quick pumpkin breads like muffins and loa\es are likely to
make an appearance anytime during the holidays even tied
up with a ribbon. For a holiday brunch, dinner, snack or a
thoughtful hostess gift, there is a pumpkin bread for every oc-
casion.
"Muffins:and loaves are the easiest of the quick breads to
make for the holiday," observes Martha Whiietr) baking ex-
pert, Linda Carman. "And adding pumpkin to the batter not
only makes these breads festive, but also moist and flavorful."
What are Quick Breads?
The category of breads that we call "quick breads" includes
not only muffins and loaves like banana and pumpkin bread,
but also biscuits, cornbread, pancakes and waffles. They are
called "quick" because you mix them quickly and bake imme-
diately after mixing. Leavened with baking powder and/or
soda, these breads rise in the oven (or on the griddle) as the)
bake. Self-rising flour and corn meal already contain baking
powder, soda and salt, so they are perfect for making quick
breads.

LOVORS
Here are a few tips to
make sure your muffins and
loaves turn out right every
time:
For the best results, heat
the oven, grease the panand
measure out all ingredients
before you start to mix.
Muffins and quick loaf bat-
ters should be mixed, poured
into the pan and baked im-
mediately.
Follow the recipe, but re-
member that most quick


bread batters are stirred just
until the ingredients are
combined. Overmixing will
make them tough.
Shiny muffin and loaf
pans brown most evenly.
Dark pans absorb heat
browning more on the bot-
tom than the top. If your
pans are dark, reduce the
oven temperature 25 de-
grees.
Standard muffin cups are
about 2 1/2 x 1-inch, but any
size may be used. Just re-
member to fill the cups only
2/3 to 3/4 full, as advised in
the recipe.
Quick loaves usually
taste and slice better the day
after baking. Cool, wrap and
store in a cool place
overnight. They may also be
frozen up to three months.

HOLIDAY

PUMPKIN


Time is always at a premi-
um during the holidays, so
having some easy bread
recipes on hand will take
some of the stress out of
holiday baking. By keeping


just a few ingredients in the
pantry, you'll be able to
make muffins or a loaf of
pumpkin bread with mini-
mum effort.
Everyone will appreciate
warm spicy Pumpkin
Streusel Muffins for a holi-
day brunch or afternoon cof-
fee break. Filled with cream
cheese and topped with a
crunchy cinnamon topping,
these muffins are sure to be
a holiday favorite.
Pumpkin and Sausage
Corn Muffins are an unex-
pected twist on this theme.
This sweet and savory flavor
combination is delicious
paired with soup or stew for
a casual holiday gathering.
A cornbread mix simplifies
the recipe, but these muffins
are good enough to serve
with your holiday dinner.
Although loaves take
longer to bake than muffins,
they are good keepers and
nice to have on hand for a
snack or unexpected compa-
ny. Pumpkin Apple Spice
Bread gets a head start from
a convenient muffin mix
which makes mixing so easy
you'll want to make several
loaves to put inthe freezer.

Families Must Prepare for Mental Health Pressures of College


This year, more than two million young men and women
across the United States will begin college careers. The
climates, courses and campuses will be different, but the
countless pressures faced by these college students will be the
same.
Mental health issues including depression, eating disorders,
substance abuse and anxiety, often brought on by the
heightened stress of a college
environment, have grown increasingly common among
college students. As recent news has raised serious concerns
about the effects of such issues, especially when left untreated,
it is important to take a proactive approach to recognizing and
addressing them, says Sheldon Miller, M.D., chief medical
officer of Timberline Knolls, a national residential treatment
center for eating disorders, substance abuse, self-injury
behavior and other emotional disorders.
"Raising awareness of the mental health struggles met by
many college students is a crucial step in fighting the
associated stigma that often keeps those suffering from seeking
help," Miller says. "If students feel comfortable reaching out,
issues can be professionally addressed before they become
severe, or even dangerous."
According to Miller, the following facts should be taken into '
account as students enter college this fall:
New freedom, new anxiety. Studies show that change, lack of
sleep and stress (all commonplace among college freshmen)
can be the greatest triggers of mental health issues. Leaving
your parents for an unstructured environment is exciting, but it
can also cause high levels of stress and anxiety. Late nights,
whether spent studying or socializing, also come at a price.
Both academic and social stress can lead to depression, which
when left untreated can lead to suicide the second leading
cause of death among college students.
New peers, new pressure. College freshmen are surrounded
by new personalities and unfamiliar social settings. The desire
to fit in can potentially create a spiral of unhealthy behaviors
that can lead to problems like alcohol dependence or eating
disorders. Students are urged to seek professional help if they
drink everyday, binge drink to get drunk, or if alcohol is
interfering
with schoolwork or relationships. Also important to note,
studies indicate that as many as 19 percent of college-aged
American women suffer from bulimia, a dangerous eating
disorder that can be detrimental to self-esteem, social
relationships, and academic performance.
New fears, new feelings. In a 2006 survey of more than
90,000 college students, 50 percent admitted to feeling
depressed, hnd 93 percent reported feeling overwhelmed. The
stress of school assignments and exams, paired with the
pressure of social organizations like fraternities and sororities,
can quickly become unmanageable. Because mental health
issues are often dismissed as "normal" college life, it is
important for students, parents and university faculty and staff
to learn to recognize the warning signs of more serious
troubles. When a student appears to be masking emotional
problems with alcohol or drugs, or suffers from extended
depression, he or she should be referred to the
appropriate mental health offices for treatment. Research
shows the most common occurrence of emotional disorders


i'

College students face pressures that can lead to mental health issues.

appears among young adults, ages 17 to 21.
New ideas, new hope. Recent studies revealing the biochemical
basis of depression and other disorders have helped many
students realize that mental health issues do not indicate personal
failure, and should not cause shame. On-campus groups
promoting mental health awareness are popping up at universities
across the country, slowly stomping out the stigma of mental and
emotional disorders and helping encourage students to seek help
for their problems. A 2007 survey by the Anxiety Disorders
Association of America showed 13 percent of all college students
now use or have used on-campus mental health services. In fact,
one institution reported a 29 percent increase in the use of
counseling and psychological services over the last four years,
and another reported that 40 percent of first-year students visit the
counseling center at least once.
Being aware of and prepared for the mental health issues that
often come with the territory for college
freshmen can help foster an accepting environment among
students, parents and university faculty and staff. By normalizing
mental health issues, Miller says students can feel comfortable
seeking the help they need, leading to increased success and
satisfaction in life, rather than
suffering in silence and isolation. For additional information,

FAMILY FEATURES


Doting new parents "Ooh" and
"Ah" at how their babies
seem to change daily. Their
first smiles, their first words
and each new tooth is cele-
brated and documented in the baby book.
New mommies and daddies revel in each
developmental milestone, yet few feel
confident in knowing when their baby's
changes signal a new stage and how to
address it.
When it comes to raising children,
sometimes the greatest challenge is staying
one step ahead, ready for rather than
surprised by the next stage. Getting a
child to start eating baby food can be a
challenge, and a humorous and messy one
at that! Parents have to know the ins and
outs of rear-facing and front-facing car
seats. There's even a science to diapers.
They not only come in different sizes, but
today's diapers change with babies as they
grow and develop. It's too bad babies don't
come with manuals, because parenting
doesn't always come instinctively.
"Parenting is such a rewarding experi-
ence and there are so many different mile-
stones to look forward to, yet it can be
difficult for parents to understand what
to introduce and when," says Dr. Loraine
Stern, M.D., clinical professor of pedia-
trics at UCLA and a member of the
Pampers Parenting Institute. "Parents
want to make sure they are doing all
they can to promote their children's
development at each stage."


Diapers: More Than Just a Bigger Size
Most parents think thatthey just move to a bigger diaper size as
their babies gets older. But with new Pampers.Stages, there is a
complete line of diapers. training pants and corresponding wipes
for each stage of development, which makes it easy for parents to
know which products are most appropriate for their babies or
toddlers at that time.
* For the newborn stage, expect more frequent diaper changes
than other stages because of a baby's all-liquid diet. Pampers
Swaddlers feature quilted, blanket-like softness, and Sensitive
Wipes are ideal. for newborns because they help restore the nat-
ural pH balance of delicate skin up to two times faster than a
washcloth and water.


Car safety' is such an important topic, but many parents don't know
how to navigate through the stages. It's important to choose the right
car seat for the right age and. i -. to keep babies safe as they grow.
* Rear-facing car seats are required for babies until they're 1 year
old regardless of weight. Infant car seats are ideal for this stage
and can be used during the first year ni-il baby reaches 20 to
22 pounds. Once a baby reaches this weight, change to a con-
vertible car seat (but still place i- ,-f.li::-g until 1 year).


Transitionng to Baby Food and
Eating Veggies!
B.-l',is' c.itrin ha.lis change dramatically in the first few months,
b.1.I It I -, A.tii diicult for new parents to know when to begin
o ftel ing lheiir babi:s new options. Below are some helpful tips to

* Sti.i \i ithi .1 ringl~grain, iron-fortified infant cereal such as

* [nitroduce 'ne new ood every three to five days like.strained

is '.illin 1o accept new food. .
* \i jari,,ird or 9 months, babies may be ready to start feeding
teli elelI.s c ,t h fingr foods. Soon they'll move on to using a
hild-sized poon and drinking from a cup.




* Pampers Cruisers and nmw Swipers wipes are for babies when
they start to crawl, walkdand eat solid foods.
* For easy standing changes once toddlers start exploring their
world, a training pant liki Pampers Easy Ups can really help.
New Pampers Clean 'n Go wipes can be used for all-over
cleansing- from a toddler's face and hands, to diaper changes
which makes them idel for parents and children on the go.
* For toddlers entering the p ttty training stage, try a training
pant that provides leak pro action but helps toddlers feel when
they've wet to help them lear when it's time to use the potty.




* When a baby is big enough -bver 20 pounds AND 1 year old
a convertible seat can be plced facing forward. To ensure .
proper fit, move the shoulder straps to the slots just above the
child's shoulders.
* When children are 4 years old, Aiore than 40 pounds and their
ears reach the top of their car set, it's time for a booster seat.




Toothless Grins and To h Fairy Visits
Parents often ask when is the right time\o start brushing children's
teeth so they can start off on the right track to a perfect smile!
5 Parents can start good oral care even it the newborn stage by
gently wiping their babies' gums with damp washcloth
following feedings.
When the first tooth appears, it's recommended that parents
start brushing their children's teeth twic a day.
Look for stage-appropriate oral care prod cts like toothbrushes
designed with chunky handles for toddlerS' little hands and
baby soft bristles. Children younger than age 2 should use
toothpaste without fluoride.

Parents should consult their health care provider at each stage
and can utilize helpful online resources such as Pampers.com
in between checkups. Most importantly, parents should take
the time to enjoy each and every milestone their precious little
ones celebrate!

The holiday shopping countdown


p t~J

FAMILY FEATURES


"BLACK FRIDAY" has long been regarded as the
kick off of the holiday shopping season. However,
now that retailers are unveiling their Christmas
products earlier every year, and catering to the
needs of late shoppers, the stores are filled with
people in pursuit of the perfect gift anywhere
between Labor Day and December 25.
In fact, according to the National Retail
Federation, the number of "extreme" early birds
-and procrastinators has been on the rise in recent
years. Last year, 40 percent of all consumers
began their holiday shopping before Halloween,
and 15 percent of consumers reported that they
had not begun any of their shopping by December
5. As a result, retailers are updating their products,
merchandising and marketing plans to meet the
needs of these two very different sets of shoppers.
One clear example of how this has affected
the retail world can be seen in the greeting card
industry. Christmas remains the top card-sending
occasion, with nearly two billion cards sent
annually, and greeting card manufacturers have
taken note of this evolving consumer demand.
"We have definitely noticed the trend of con-
sumers pushing up the unofficial start of the
holiday shopping season," said Heather Bentley,
Christmas Program Manager at American
Greetings. "In response to this, shoppers will
start to see the cards in stores by November 1,
and the complete holiday card line will be
available before Thanksgiving."
"We have also enhanced our offering of con-
venience items like gift card holders for the late
season shopper. And overall our holiday cards
reflect a more conversational tone and generally
sendable quality to help shoppers with multiple
tasks to get in and out of the card aisle more
quickly," Bentley said.


jr.. -

,LI! I w~f f r














v m


Every Christmas wish list seems to have tech gadgets on it, and even the card
aisles are reflecting the trend. American Greetings will debut tech-inspiried
cards this holiday season as the perfect pairing for all of the hottest gizmos.
The cards will feature special extras like blinking lights, sounds of the season
and popular holiday songs.


E
'' "~


Ing get,*


Procrastinators usually are in the scrambling.
mode not because of short sightedness, but
rather because they haven't had the time to get
their shopping done. This year that isn't a bad
thing, as retailers are becoming even more last-
minute shopper friendly. Holiday trend experts
have tips to make that mad dash to the holiday
shopping finish line stress free.
m Make the best use of the time you have:
Use modem conveniefices and opportunities
to get last minute gifts and cards out. Many


True early birds can use their spire time to wrap packages with warmth, texture and color. For
instance, new or gently used scarves can act like "ribbon" while mittens and gloves continue the


cozy theme as "bows."


F or those shoppers getting out before Halloween
costumes even appear, remenver: time is your
friend. Holiday trend experts offir the following tips
for taking advantage of the extra time you have
given yourself to get everythingdone.
* Use that extra time to actually shop: Reward
yourself by taking more tine to peruse the aisles
to find the perfect gift, card, wrap and acces-
sories for everyone on yoir list.
I This year you can enjoy spending some of that
extra time in the greeting.card aisle. American
Greetings has new soung, song and light cards
for the holiday, which feature seasonal tunes and
bright, beautiful images to put anyone into the
spirit. Because you are getting such a head start,
you'll have time to listen to every sound, hum
along with every song and smile at every festive
scene that the cards ffer before choosing your
favorites,
Enjoy the lack ofiraffic: Congratulations, you
have ensured yotfself the avoidance of long
lines and crowded malls. Take advantage of
your situation to actually enjoy your shopping
experience in a leisurely fashion. Since you've
given yourself the luxury of allowing for addi-
tional shippirg time, you can even utilize the
convenience of online shopping.


* Spread out your holiday tasks and hunt for
bargains: Starting your holiday preparations
early means that you'll have more time to
commit to all of your various seasonal tasks.
This includes sending holiday cards, grocery
shopping, baking and cleaning. It also means
that you can bargain shop for the essentials.
Make a list of everything you need to get
done and then spread out your holiday chores
as you go. Use down time to fill out greeting
cards, bake and freeze on the weekends and
pick up a few items for the big holiday meal
every time you head to the grocery store. Take
advantage of early sales and specials as you go.
* Solicit help: Make sure to get some help from
your family and friends. Enlisting help for this
busy time of year is essential. And since you
are likely to be helping others as well, you
will have an even bigger pool of helpers to
choose from.
* Dress up your gifts: In addition to having
more time to get everything done, the early
bird also has more time to dress up their gifts. i
You took extra time to choose that thoughtful/
gift, so take care to make it look like it from /
the outside in. Accentuate any gift with a hand-
made attachment or other thoughtful touch. /

/


Few items are more cherished for a late-season shop
trendy gift bag, and this year's options have stylish i
details. Enhancements such as fabric attachments ai
make them much more than just glorified shopping


busy professionals send cards to colleagues via
inter office mail, or hand deliver gifts during pre
and post season get together or office parties. In
short, if you can put off buying the gift right this
second, do so.
American Greetings has expanded it's offering
of generally sendable greetings to make it even
easier to find the perfect card for any family
member, work associate or friend. The greeting
card company has also enhanced its newest boxed
cards with stylish finishings and attachments.
Escape the traffic: Try to
take advantage of the usual
extended hours and plan
your shopping for earlier
or later in the day. You will
be able to eliminate a lot
S. of the casual shoppers and
those just "hanging out"
by doing so, which will.
make your trip much more
S efficient.
i L.' I L Take advantage of sales
I i ... seriously: Just because
J.LH[ 1 you weren't able to. get a
jump on your shopping
S. doesn't mean you will
have to pay top dollar.
Retailers, recognizing the
trend of procrastination,
S are introducing late season
f sales to lure some of this
growing market. So be
sure to check online and
in your newspaper to see
what specials are being
offered before heading out.
Beg for help: Trying to
get everything done at the
last minute is difficult,
trying to find the perfect
gift for everyone with no
time to spare, well that
is just impossible. Ask
: friends and family mem-"
.. bers for tips to ensure that
you choose the right color,
size or. style.
Be craftier and flexible in
.'' your gift presentation:
Trendy gift bags can add
style to any present. Fun
gift card holders instantly

tion of a convenient gift
card to a favorite store or
restaurant. If all else fails,

362-1734 CLASSIFIED MARKETPLACE 1-800-525-4182


Dear Classified Guys,
My husband has always been the
type of guy who buys things that
need repair just to save a few bucks.
The first house he bought was nearly
condemned before we spent three
years rebuilding it into a spacious
cape. While the end result is beauti-
ful, it came at a cost. My husband's
klutziness landed him a broken arm
and multiple trips to the emergency
room. He swore off remodeling after
that, until we started looking for a
new house. In our hunt for more
space, we found two houses. One is
almost new, in a decent neighbor-
hood, at an okay price. The other is
much larger, great yard, great price,
but you guessed it, needs some TLC.
My husband is thinking of doing it all
over again. I don't know if I can
watch him fall off the sec- A
ond story deck AGAIN! Do -- '
you think we're better off ---
buying the fixer-upper or
just spending a little more for
a finished home?
Cash: First off, maybe your hus-
band's toolbox should be converted to a
first aid kit. It sounds like that may be
more helpful during his construction.
Carry: When it comes to buying a

home, decisions like yours are never
easy. It's nice to save on the cost by
doing some home repairs yourself, but
there is also something calming about
just moving in to a finished home.
Although even in a newer home, I'm
sure your husband could find a few
repairs to keep himself busy.
Cash: As you know, the house that
needs some repair can have its financial
advantages. Besides getting a larger
home for the cost, repairs that you
make could increase it's value when
you're ready to move again.
Carry: However, your husband's
record of hospital visits makes the deci-
sion much more difficult.


Cash: While finances can often
influence the decision for many people,
there is more involved in the process.
You need to determine if you and your
husband want to spend your time
remodeling or spend your time on other
things. Obviously, this is a decision
only the two of you can make.
Carry: If you do choose the house that
needs TLC, you could compromise.by
hiring out some of the remodeling work,
leaving fewer and safer projects for your
husband. Just be sure to factor in those
costs when making your decision.
Cash: And, regardless of which house
you choose, for your husband's sake, be
sure the deck is on the ground floor!


Handyman Special
Those that can, fix their house. Those
that can't, like to watch other people do
it on TV. Handyman shows like This
Old House have always been popular.
However, in the last decade, remodeling
television has grown in popularity with
shows like Extreme Home Makeover
(ABC), Flip This House (A&E) or Flip
That House (TLC). And it's easy to see
why. For most people, a home is their
largest investment. While the average
median home price nationwide has fall-
en again this year, by just over 4%, the
average price of $211,700 is still a reach
for many.
Next to the Jones
New home construction today is con-
siderably different from years past.
Inl 1970, the average size of a home was
about 1,500 square feet. Today, almost
half of all the homes built are 2,400
square feet or more. They are taller too.
In 1970, only 17% of new homes had a
second story as opposed to today's
houses, where more than half have a
second floor. While we may appreciate
the added space, it sure does add to the
housework!

P.O. Box 8246, New Fairfield, CT 06812.


Clean Up
As a realtor, you never know what
to expect when you show a house for
the first time. I took one of my
clients to a handyman special that
just came on the market.
When we walked in, the place was
really nice. It just needed a little
cleaning. We couldn't figure out %h%\
the price was so reduced until we
turned on the water main.
Suddenly water came pouring out
of the ceiling, making the entire first
floor look like a heavy rainstorm.
We rushed to turn off the water main.
As we stood dripping wet, my
client put a positive spin on the
event. "This really is a nice house,"
he said. "It's even self cleaning."
(Thanks to Tiffany J.)



Now that's an odd "foreclosure" spelling.

FAMILY FEATURES

F or many of us, the holiday season stirs up warm memories of home, scents of family '
meals and generations of rituals. Every family has their own holiday traditions,
whether it is a signature dish or an after dinner ritual, and many of those customs
happen in the kitchen and at the dinner table. Your mealtime memories influence old and new traditions with
each generation adding a chapter to the recipe book.
According to a new survey conducted by Kelton Research, on behalf of The J.M. Smucker Company, families value
traditions. More than seven in ten (71%) Americans agree that the best way to continue their family traditions is through
gatherings and celebrations. Over six in ten (61%) say that holiday meals are becoming more important to them as the;,
get older, and as families are sitting down to share a holiday meal this season, nearly seven in ten (68%) will have at
least three generations gathered around the holiday table.
For generations, home chefs everywhere have trusted The J.M. Smucker Company to help preserve favorite family
recipes and create new dishes destined to become traditions. This year The J.M. Smucker Company invites you to beg in
a new tradition around the dinner table with the help of these classic recipes.

A HOLIDAY RECIPE FOR SUCCESS


Simple time-saving tips for entertaining with style


The holiday -
season is a time
for togetherness,
good friends and -
family, and best of
all, delicious food.
Whether your
guests are staying
for dinner or for
the entire
weekend,
simplifying the
details and Kit
prepping as much KitchenA
as possible in
advance will allow you to
make the most of your time to
create a festive atmosphere
your guests will remember for
years to come.

YOU'RE INVITED
Once you've
decided on your
guest list, add an
extra special touch
by sending an easy-
to-make, yet
whimsical invite to
officially save-the-
date. For a southern
holiday get-together,
send mini packages
of mulled cider mix
or gourmet cocoa
(easily ordered
online) and attach
decorative tags with
an invitation for a
warm beverage
around an outdoor
fire pit. An invite for'
a cozy brunch in the Bonjou
mountains could
include a hand-lettered paper
invite tied to a colorful
pressed maple leaf or a small
bundle of cinnamon sticks.
Regardless of the theme, your
invite sets the tone for the
enjoyable time that awaits.

A WARM WELCOME
Out-of-town guests arriving
at your home will appreciate a
warm welcome, especially if :
it involves food! A casual
buffet meal, more timesaving
to make and set-up in
advance, will allow guests to
feel at home while satisfying
the heartiest of appetites.
Simple spreads that include
cold-weather favorites such as
beef stew, hearty soups or
chili are always crowd
pleasers. Even grilled
sandwiches can be dressed up,
when paired with a favorite
family recipe for potato salad
or a more adventurous dish
such as an Asian carrot and
apple coleslaw. The new
BonJour Stainless Steel
Serveware is double wall
insulated and perfect for
keeping a variety of foods at
the optimum hot or cold
temperature. These versatile
serving pieces, available in 2-
and 3-quart oval and round
sizes, and featuring tight
fitting lids with stylized
vegetable knobs, look
beautiful on any holiday
buffet table.

Baking Family Traditions
Holiday cookies are a staple
of the season and what better
way to preserve family
traditions than to ask for
guests to share some of their
favorites. The week or two
before your gathering, ask
guests to provide you with
recipes of their favorite
holiday cookies so you can
prepare each in advance. Most
cookie dough recipes can be
frozen and thawed when
ready to use. Your guests can
participate in the actual
baking and decorating step
together.
Before you break out any
ingredients, make sure to have
all the tools needed to
properly prepare each recipe.
Quality cookie sheets are a
must-have staple in any


baker's pantry. Anolon
Commercial Bakeware
Cookie Sheets are designed
for home cooks that prefer
rugged baking pans without a
nonstick coating. Available in
a generously proportioned 14-
inch by 16-inch size, Anolon's
cookie sheets are oven- and
broiler-safe and feature


-~


id 5-Ply Stainless Steel Clad 15-inch Roaster.


reinforced rims to prevent
'warping. Be sure to have an
ample supply of cookie sheets
on-hand so that your guests
can prep cookies while others
bake and cool.


( .
c^ ,


ir Cookie Factory.

Before baking the cookies,
set out cookie sheets and
traditional edible holiday
baking decorations, including
silver dragees, edible glitter
sugar, Non-Pareils, crushed
cinnamon and peppermint
candies, and colored
sprinkles. For pressed cookie
recipes, BonJour's Cookie


Factory excels in making
large batches quickly and
easily with the press of a
button. The BonJour Cookie
Factory features a powerful
automatic motor, jumbo and
traditional-size
cookie barrels,
and a large
assortment of
cookie disks
and decorating
tips. The results
are beautifully
uniform
cookies, perfect
for giving or
eating.

THE MAIN
_. EVENT:
HOLIDAY
DINNER
Regardless of
whether your
.4 guests are
coming for
Thanksgiving,
Hanukkah, or
Christmas, the
festivities culminate at the
holiday dinner table. Oven-
cooked main courses, such as
a large turkey or roast, are
easier to prepare since there is
little prep work and all the
cooking is done in the oven.
A high-quality roasting pan,
such as the KitchenAid 5-Ply
Stainless Steel Clad 15-inch


s


I-IN


Roaster is essential. Designed
for superior heat conductivity,
the KitchenAid Roaster
features an aluminum core
throughout the pan and a non-
reactive, gleaming stainless
steel cooking surface for
optimum cooking results.
Solid cast stainless steel
handles are ergonomically
designed for comfort and easy
lifting of the pan from oven to
table.
Turkey and roasts would
not be complete without
flavorful gravy, which can
also be made easily on the
stovetop in the roasting pan.
After your meat is finished
cooking, simply transfer it to
a platter and begin preparing
gravy in the same pan. That
way you can utilize all the
savory cooking juices and
caramelized bits which give
gravy an authentic "finished"
taste.
When you are ready to
serve, designate one guest -
whether it is the eldest
member of the family or
someone new to the holiday
table to the honorable task
of carving the roast. Make
the ritual extra special with
good quality cutlery, such as
Anolon's 2-Piece Carving
Set, which features an 8-inch
forged carving knife, and 6-
inch carving fork.
Anolon full tang, forged
knives are crafted from
German steel and feature
Santoprene handles for a
comfortable grip.
For side dishes, green bean
almondine casserole and
potatoes au gratin are always
a favorite. Make these in
advance in an Infinite
Circulon Covered Buffet.
Casserole. This new line of
hard-anodized aluminum
cookware is both dishwasher


safe and can also be used on
induction ranges. For added
convenience, Infinite
Circulon features a superior
nonstick cooking surface that
makes clean up quick and
easy. An Infinite Circulon
Warming Cradle with Butane
Burner is the perfect
accessory for keeping piping
hot casseroles warm at the
table.

UNTIL NEXT TIME,
FAREWELL
For overnight guests, set
up a "help-yourself" buffet
brunch that will stay fresh all
morning, regardless of what
time everyone wakes up and
gets:on the road home.
Festive holiday mugs, juice
cups and dishes can be set
out the night before. Keep
the menu simple with an
assortment of dry cereals and
granola, fresh fruit and
muffins that were made
ahead of time, juice and
coffee. For a special touch,
brew your guests the best cup
of coffee to make this simple
meal memorable. Coffee
purists agree that the ultimate
cup of gourmet coffee is
specially brewed in a French


Press coffee maker.
BonJour's Maximus 12-cup
French Press brews gourmet-
quality coffee in minutes and
features a patented Flavor
Lock filter system, which
shuts down brewing with a
simple twist of the lid knob
for optimum flavor. A
filtering lid helps eliminate
sediments in the cup, and the
generous 12-cup capacity is
ideal for entertaining.
Finally, leave a
personalized card for each
departing guest thanking them
for their visit and wishing
them a wonderful new year!


Bonjour Maximus 12-cup
French Press.
