'Pay It Forward' program
benefits those who give
as well as their recipients.
By TONY BRITT
tbritt@lakecityreporter.comr
Each day millions of people across
the globe are provided with the unique
opportunity to meet total strangers and
change their lives in a positive fashion.
Far too often in those chance
encounters, handshakes that can forge
a bond of honesty are never shared and
hugs that can foster a sense of humility
between the two strangers are absent.
For Christmas 2006 a group of local
educators combined forces with a local
bank so that four Columbia High
School students will never view
Christmas in the same manner.
Armed with a total of $1,000, four
CHS students were given $200 each, a
camera and the opportunity to impact
the life of a complete stranger in the
community by giving them the money.
Melinda Moses, a CHS assistant
principal, and Helen Beaty, Niblack
Elementary School art teacher, where
the orchestrators of the local plan after
watching an episode of the Oprah
Winfrey Show where a similar concept
shed a new light on Christmas for
givers and receivers.


TONY BRITTf/Lake City Reporter
Pay It Forward program beneficiary, Justin, gets a hug from his benefactor, Jamila
Daniels.


With $1,000 in financial backing from
First Federal Bank, their idea became a
reality.
The Columbia High School Oprah
Club, as the group calls itself, partici-
pated in a "Pay It Forward" project
where the students gave the money to


complete strangers in hopes of better-
ing their holiday spirits. The students
also gave cash to several people as the
people were shopping in local stores.

Childhood ways
contributed to a
giving attitude.
By LINDSAY DOWNEY
Idowney@lakecityreporter.comrn
During the holidays, people
focus on their families buy-
ing gifts on everyone's lists,
hanging ornaments on the
tree and preparing food for
their loved ones.
Directors of local charities
work to ensure Christmas will
be special for their families as
well, but their lists extend way
beyond their own children and
siblings. They become Santas
for entire communities, adopt-
ing hundreds of local families
during the holiday season.
"It's such a tiredness but it's
such a joyous tiredness,"
Christian Service Center
Director Shirley 'McManus
said of her work during the
holidays. "We're ready to fall
over but...this is my Christmas
- giving away these
Christmas baskets."
For some charity leaders,
today may be the first day in
months they will have an
opportunity to relax, spend
time with family and sleep
sound knowing they helped
put hundreds of gifts under
local Christmas trees and
helped ensure North
Floridians will have turkey,
ham and other food to feed
their families tomorrow.


"The children, I'm sure, will
wake up happy," said Meally
Jenkins, founder of the
Christmas Dream Machine,
which collected toys and
clothes for more than 900
local children for Christmas
this year. "I love all the hugs, I
love all the thanks, I love all
the tears. It makes the hard
work worth it."
Several people who run
charities attributed their will-
ingness to give to the way they
were raised, often in house-
holds where money was
scarce but love was rampant.
McManus, who was the old-
est of four children growing up
in Bryn Mawr, Pa., said she
tried to do everything she
could to make sure her
younger brother and sisters
had a nice Christmas, including
buying a tree for her family the
year they couldn't afford one.
Though she had only 50 cents,
the nice man selling Christmas
trees on the street corner
accepted McManus' two-quar-
ter offer and she dragged
the scrawny fir tree home to
. her siblings.
"Growing up in a very poor
family, I can always remember
wanting Christmas to be for
(my brother, and sisters),"
McManus said. '"There were
many years I told my parents
'don't worry about me.'"
Jenkins, who grew up poor,
with seven siblings in Lake

PANAMA CITY BEACH -
Three stranded divers spent a
chilly night at sea, clinging to
their overturned boat before
being rescued.
The U.S. Coast Guard
rescued Bela Kovacs, Robert
Darvai and Randy Wright on
Thursday morning, returning
them to anxious family
members waiting on shore.
The divers, all from Bay
County, went out on a 20-foot
boat Wednesday planning to
,dive-around area wrecks. When
they returned from their first
dive, high waves were hitting
The boat.
"We tried bailing, but it didn't
do any good," Kovacs told The
News Herald in Panama City.


The three waited out the
night in 64-degree waters by
hanging on to a rope they Z
attached inside the hull. In the
morning they swam for shore
and made it about a mile before
the Coast Guard spotted them.

Gardening Resolutions for the New Year


We all tend to
look to the
New Year
as an
opportunity
to do something better, to try
new things or to strive
toward a goal. Why not make
some resolutions or goals
regarding your gardening
hobby? Here are some
suggestions to plant a seed in
your thoughts.
If you don't already enjoy
gardening, give it a try.
Gardening is not just
growing vegetables but can
include flowers, lawn care,
containerized plants,
growing fruits and
arranging flowers.
Learn the virtue of
patience. In our Extension
programs we teach children
that plants need time to grow.
It also takes time for us to
grow and mature into
seasoned gardeners. Stand
back and enjoy what you
have accomplished even
though it may not be
finished yet or maybe it isn't
quite picture perfect. Enjoy
the journey.
Share with others. Give
some of your extra
vegetables or flowers to a
friend or a local charity such
as the Hannah House. Share

the beauty of your garden
and landscape with your
neighbors by keeping your
place neat and attractive.
Take care of your tools
and equipment. They will last
longer and be safer to use.
Try something new.
Check gardening catalogs
and your local garden
centers for new plants or
varieties you have never
grown before. Use a new
gardening technique or
method.
Share intentionally with
the wildlife. No one wants to
lose their entire harvest but
you might plant a few extra
herbs for the butterfly
caterpillars or grow some
extra corn for the squirrel
feeder.
You might consider
keeping a garden journal.
Make a garden or
landscape plan then record


your activities each week.
This can be an interesting log
to refer to when making
plans for the next year.
Plan ahead to enter
something in the County Fair
next Fall. Perhaps you could
grow and carve a pumpkin.
You might enter a jar of your
favorite homemade jelly.
Maybe you enjoy flower
arranging and would like to
enter one of your creations.
There is also room to enter
your favorite house plant or
Bonsai tree.
Look for life lessons in
the garden. Gardening is an
excellent hobby to help us
get in touch with ourselves
and the giver of all blessings.
Many lessons and examples
can be found around us if we
only look and listen. Listen to
the cheerful songs of the
birds, find joy in the antics of
the squirrels, and see the
caterpillar (eating your
flowers) and how it prepares
for the changes of life.
Try earth-friendly
practices. Compost your yard
trash. Give beneficial insects
a chance to do their job
before reaching for the
sprayer. Reduce the use of
nitrogen fertilizers (they
reduce the water quality of
our lakes and springs and


increase lawn disease and
insect problems).
Be safe and healthy
while gardening. Protect
your skin from excessive sun
damage. Read the label
before using any gardening
chemicals. Be mindful of
protecting children, pets, and
wildlife.
Explore a new
information source. Read a
new book or magazine.
Check out the Internet.
Attend a workshop. Join a
local garden club or
association. We should never
believe we have reached the
status of "expert."
Program
Announcement: Master
Gardeners are available on
Tuesday and Thursday
mornings (9 a.m. to noon) to
answer your gardening
questions. Give them a call at
752-5384 or bring your plant
samples to the Extension
Service building located on
the Lake City Fairgrounds.
They will be taking the last
two week of December off
for the holidays but will
resume after the New Year.

LAKE CITY REPORTER LOCAL & NATION SUNDAY, DECEMBER 24, 2006


PAY IT: Forward Program was a learning experience
Continued From Page 1A


the students involved will find
a positive side of themselves,"
Moses said. 'This joy will
spread to their families,
friends and those they have
chosen to help. We hope that
they will feel empowered in
their own life to help others
and themselves. We hope that
they will understand that for
every ounce you give you get a
pound in return."
The program was designed
to let the students see what
kind of difference they can
make to others.
"After seeing how much joy'
this brought to all involved, my
sister and I wanted to share this
with high school students who
have not had the opportunity to
find the joy in giving for the
sake of giving," Moses said.

Jamila and Gigi
On Sunday, Dec. 17, Jamila
Daniels decided it was time for
her to step up and make a differ-
ence in the life of a total stranger.
However, she went to meet
her beneficiary with more
money than the other students.
Once word spread about what
she was doing, she received an
additional $20 from a stranger
to make the difference in
someone's Christmas.
"I like the project mainly
because I'm able to give to
people like people have given
to me," Daniels said. "I wanted
to be able to experience giving
something to somebody else. I
feel like I've matured and I'm
proud of myself."
Daniels spent at least 20
minutes in the store as her
beneficiary, a fellow student
named Justin, selected a pair
of sneakers for Christmas.
Daniels believes she stood
out as a participant for the pro-
gram because he's goofy and
she likes to show people her
personality.
"With me being me, I make
people feel good about them-
selves," she said.
Gigi Register, Jamila's mentor
in the program, works at First
Federal Bank, which is the
sponsor of the Columbia High
School Oprah Club. She said
she was proud that Jamila chose
to make a difference in the life
of a stranger at Christmas.
"Jamila decided she wanted
to help Justin and we got
together with Bryan's Sports,

who willingly participated in
the program by giving 50 per-
cent reductions on the items
purchased at the store,"
Register said.
Register said she hopes the
club will have a profound
effect on everyone's life which
it touched.
"I'm so proud of Jamila for
accepting this challenge and
paying it forward, because that
was the theme on the Oprah
Show that we took this off, "
she said. "I feel like this is
going to make Jamila a better
person because she's learning
to give rather than to receive. I
hope this program will have a
profound effect on Justin and
his family, the Dicks and
myself to know that this is the
reason for the season and to
enlighten all of us."

Selina and Wendy
Selina Thomas, a CHS senior,
spent her money in a fashion
where she could touch as many
strangers as possible in the
program's limited time frame.
She said she picked people
at random who she thought
could use "a couple of dollars"
and gave them the money.
Judging the reactions and
facial expressions from her
beneficiaries, Thomas said
most people looked at her as
though she was crazy for
giving them the money.
"It was hard giving up $200
but the,project was fun," she
said. "I liked how I felt after-
ward, seeing people's faces
with smiles."
Thomas also had an opportu-
nity to see the pay it forward
plan come to life after she went
to a local fast-food restaurant and
bought lunch for several people.


'The people were trying to
give me the money back so
that I could spend it on other
people," she said.
Wendy McFatter served as
Selina's mentor for the program
and hoped it would touch her
heart for the holidays.
"A lot of children would
never have known the feeling of
giving money to a total stranger
had it not been for something
like this," McFatter said. "This
was a perfect opportunity for
these students to get to feel
how it is to go and give money
to people who are needy. Selina
told me it made her feel so good
and that she had never had that
feeling before. She called and
told me how she felt when she
gave her last $2 to a homeless
person and how it made her
heart fill up with love."

Nicole and Gloria
Nicole Petrone, a 16-year-old
CHS ninth-grader, decided to
give her $200 to a man, whose
first wife recently died and then
his daughter died less than two
months later, leaving him'to
raise his three children and his
three grandchildren.
"He touched my heart and I
guess I touched his that day,"
she said.
Petrone said she felt slightly
uncomfortable giving the
money to the man because she
didn't want him to feel like a
charity case..
"But when. I gave it to -him;
the look in his eyes made me
want to cry," she said. "I was
sitting in the car and he asked
me to get out and he gave me
the biggest hug and I was just
crying. I've never cried
because I was happy before."
Gloria Spivey served as


Petrone's mentor for the
seven-day project and said
Petrone was given basic guide-
lines for the project, but it's
rules weren't designed to hin-
der the girls in their efforts.
"We wanted the girls to have
the whole experience, not to
just walk up to somebody and
give them the money," she said.
"You can see by the look on
Nicole's face about how well it
made her feel to pay it forward.
Who knows what acts of kind-
ness this man will do because
somebody has helped him."

Becca and Betsy
Becca Gardner, also a CHS
ninth-grader, was the last stu-
dent to present her beneficiary
with the money and gifts.
Gardner selected a single
mom, new to the area and
employed in a temporary job
with no means of transporta-
tion, as her benefactor after
talking to her grandmother.
She bought the mother and
her family a Christmas tree, as
well as several other items,
and delivered it to their door.
"I hope to make her
Christmas better," Gardner
said. "She'll have this money
to buy her child a present."
Gardner said she selected
the single mom after learning
she had a daughter that was
close to her age.
"I think I was picked to be in
this program because Ms.
Moses believes I have a lot of
potential," Gardner said. "I'm
flattered that Ms. Moses
thought I could do well during
this project."
Betsy Pottle served as
Becca's mentor for the
program as she and Gardner
discussed organizations and
individuals where the money
would make a difference
during the holiday season.
"She picked the individual,
made all the contacts herself
and we just discussed what not
to do," Pottle said. "She pulled
this together herself and did a
great job." .
Pottle 'said she'ss' noticed'
changes in'Becca's personality
since she got involved with the
project.
"I think this has probably
given her a sense of responsi-
bility and fulfillment in know-
ing that she can hopefully pass
on good deeds," she said.

LEADERS: Driven to always help others


Continued From Page 1A
Butler, said she cherished the
few gifts she received for
Christmas, including the bike
she got when she was 8 years
old. Because they couldn't
afford traditional stockings,
Jenikins and her brothers and
sisters fought over who would
get the .biggest one of their
father's socks, despite the fact
that they all got the same
thing: one apple, one orange, a
candy cane and some nuts.
, Jenkins said her parents
taught her to give to those who
were less fortunate. Her father
was a mechanic who would fix
cars free of charge when cus-
tomers couldn't afford to pay.
Jenkins' family took needy
people into their home and fed
them nearly every Christmas.
' "We may not have the best
china or dishes in the world,
but we could always let some-
body come in and get warm,"
Jenkins said. "It was some-
thing little, but it was big to the
person that was receiving it."
Rita Dopp, executive direc-
tor of United Way of Suwannee
Valley, Inc. remembers drag-
ging her wagon through the
snow in Silver Springs, Md.
When she was a child to deliv-


er food to neighbors in need.
Catholic Charities Executive
Director Suzanne Edwards
was sparked into service when
she and her West Palm Beach
Sunday school classmates
took socks and blankets to
seniors and children with spe-
cial needs and spent time mak-
ing crafts with them.
As an only child, Edwards
spent a lot of time with her
grandparents during the holi-
days. Some of her best memo-
ries are of sitting in pews with
her grandmother, a Southern
lady who, wore gloves and
pearls to church.
"Let's really get down to
what Christmas is about it's
about the birth of Jesus and
it's about what we can do for
others while we're here on this
earth," Edwards said.
All of the charity leaders
emphasized how important
church was to them growing
up, especially during the holi-
days. Food Bank of Suwannee
Valley manager Scott Elkins,
who grew up in West Virginia
and became a minister said
Christmas revolved around
church and family.
"We'd all attend church


services together and then be
together for the big dinners
and the times when the
cousins could all get out and
play together," he said.
This Christmas, the charity
leaders will spend time with
their families. Edwards will
spend the holiday relaxing and
reflecting on the past year.
She'll remember the nine-
month pregnant single mother
and nursing school student
she met last week who had to
be convinced to take food for
herself and her young child.
"She wanted to be clear that
she wasn't a taker she was a
giver herself," Edwards said.
"That's why you continue to
give: because you never know
when you or I may come on
hard situations."
Though they'll get a break
from their daily routines, those
who give to others likely will be
thinking about the people
whose Christmases they've
helped brighten this year and
those they hope to help in 2007.
"We're' back at it the day
after Christmas all over again,"
Edwards said.

way because he epitomized
what coaching is all about."
In his 41st year of
coaching, Knight has a

Bowl drought continues
for New Mexico as
Spartans prevail, 20-12.
By PETE HERRERA
Associated Press
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. Adam
Tafralis threw three touchdown passes
and San Jose State beat New Mexico
20-12 on Saturday in the inaugural New
Mexico Bowl, extending the Lobos'
postseason drought to 45 years.
One big pass play by Tafralis and
one costly fumble by New Mexico -


both in the first half set the tone for
the Spartans' first bowl win outside of
California.

ASSOCIATED PRESS
South Florida running back Benjamin Williams (30) runs past
East Carolina defender Kasey Ross for a touchdown at the
Papa Johns.com Bowl game Saturday in Birmingham, Ala.


Tafralis, who was. 11-of-18 for 209
yards, threw scoring passes of 36 and
24 yards to James Jones and 76 yards
to John Broussard.
The pass to Broussard on the first
play of the second quarter in which
New Mexico's defense totally blew the
coverage got the Spartans' offense
rolling.
New Mexico's only touchdown
came with 15 seconds left in the game
on a 15-yard pass from Chris Nelson to
Marcus Smith. The rest of the Lobos'

scoring consisted of a 40-yard field
goal by Kenny Byrd with 1:11 left in
the second quarter and a safety when


Early touchdowns by
BenjaminWilliams,
six sacks carry Bulls.
By JOHN ZENOR
Associated Press
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. -
South Florida started fast, made
clutch defensive stops and
cashed in on a series of fourth-
down gambles.
Bowl neophytes? The Bulls
hardly looked the part Saturday
in a 24-7 victory over East
Carolina in the PapaJohns.com
Bowl, the first bowl win for the
decade-old program.
South Florida's only previous
bowl appearance was a shutout
loss last year in the Meineke Car
Care Bowl. But a team that had
ended the regular season with
an upset win over West Virginia
might have topped that one for
the Bulls' biggest victory.


"We talked about how impor-
tant it was to win this game,"
said South Florida coach Jim
Leavitt, whose team finished 9-4
to tie its season high for wins
set in 2002. "We felt like if we'd
win today, this would be the
best team in the history of the
University of South Florida -
which is a short history.
"Even so, that was a big
thing."
The Bulls played the score-
less second half without quar-
terback Matt Grothe. The Big
East freshinan of the year was
kicked in the right shin in the
second quarter, but the defense
kept turning back East Carolina
(7-6).
Plus, the Bulls went 5-for-5 on
fourth-down conversions on
drives that resulted in 17 points.
Struggling to make a come-
back, the Pirates drove inside
the South Florida 30 five times
in the second half only to fall


San Jose State punter Waylon Prather
stepped out of the end zone with 1:08
left.
Byrd's field goal was his 25th
straight from 40 yards or closer and
the first made field goal by New
Mexico in 10 bowl appearances.
San Jose State, playing in its first
bowl in 16 years, struck first after the
teams combined for seven punts in the
first quarter.
The Spartans made it 13-0 on
Tafralis's 36-yard pass to Jones with
3:59 left in the first half. Jones caught
'the ball near the sideline at the New
Mexico 16 and scored.


short Sacks, a missed field goal,
a fumble and a failed fourth-and,
goal pass doomed the threats on
trips into the red zone.
"Statistically this was not a
lopsided game," East Carolina
coach Skip Holtz said. "It was a
red zone game."
He said the Bulls had "the
fastest defense we've played all
year."
South Florida racked up six
sacks, including two after East
Carolina set up first down from
the 4-yard line on that late drive
led by backup quarterback Rob
Kass. Fittingly, the game ended
with the Pirates at the Bulls 12,
coming up short once again. ,
In the first bowl game at
Legion Field since the 1990 Hall
of Fame, East Carolina out-
gained South Florida 317-286 in
total yards.
The Bulls jumped ahead witlh
two touchdowns in the first
7 minutes.

Some retail stores and
restaurants engage in a
festive atmosphere.

By TROY ROBERTS
troberts@lakecityreporter. corn
hristmas lights are strung,
Christmas carols are sung
and Christmas stockings
are hung. During the early
winter months, Christmas
is the traditional American holiday
when Christians celebrate the birth of
Jesus Christ and children wait to hear
the footsteps of reindeer on their roof.
During recent years, retailers have
come under fire for their promotion
of Christmas. This is evident in the
fact that many retailers greet
customers with a simple "Happy
Holidays" rather than a "Merry
Christmas" and Christmas trees are
becoming holiday trees.
During the 2005 holiday season,
Wal-Mart and other retailers
de-emphasized "Christmas" in their
advertising, opting to go with other
ways to promote the winter event.
However, due to mounting criticism
and public complaints, Wal-Mart has
brought back the Christmas spirit.
"We learned a lesson from that,"
Linda Blakley, a spokeswoman for
Wal-Mart, said in a November article
published by The Associated Press.
"Merry Christmas is now part of
the vocabulary here at Wal-Mart,"
she said.
Retail chains Macy's and Kohl's
have also decided to play up
Christmas this year.
Many local business
establishments in Lake City have
also continued to play up the
Christmas holiday.
Shoney's restaurant in Lake City
..has few.decorations, but continuously
plays Christmas music throughout.
the day.


JALA HARRISILake City Reporter
Stacey Hazen, an employee of Hampton Inn and Suites of Lake City, adjust a ribbon
on the hotel's 12-foot Christmas tree located in the hotel lobby.


"We try not to be flamboyant and
keep it to a minimum," said manager
Mike Taylor.
Other local restaurants, such as
Cracker Barrel, go all out during the
Christmas holiday to make the event


as festive as possible.
"Cracker Barrel is family oriented
and allows employees to express
themselves with the d,-c.'rations
they want to use." said Mark
Rowland, manager of the Lake City


Cracker Barrel.
In addition to the decorations at the
restaurant, their store is also festive
with plenty of Christmas merchandise.
Restaurants aren't the only
Christmas-themed places in Lake
City, as many hotels also are sharing
in the Christmas spirit.
Hampton Inn and Suites has
outside Christmas lights and a 12-foot
Christmas tree in its lobby.
'The purpose of a hotel is for it to
feel like home," said sales director Ali
Sharp. 'The more warm and inviting
it is, the better. They want the
employees involved in everything too,
so they get to decorate. They want it
to be home for us, too."
Not all retailers are following suit.
"We are going to continue to use
the term holiday because there.are
several holidays throughout that time
period, and we certainly need to be
respectful of all of them," Dawn
Bryant, a spokeswoman for Best Buy,
told the AP. Best Buy's advertising
omits references to Christmas.
Some local restaurants, including
Red Lobster and Ruby Tuesday, were
not physically decorated for
Christmas, although holiday cheer
was evident from servers.
Some servers were wearing candy
cane earrings while others wore big
Christmas smiles.
All questions about holiday
decorating at those restaurants were
forwarded to their respective
corporate offices, as local managers
would not comment on the questions
about Christmas decorations.
Calls were not returned by
corporate officials.
Many people perceive the reason
for the lack of Christmas decorations
or Christmas-themed music at many
businesses is to refrain from
offending anyone who may be of a
differi nt re-ligion ,or belief.
"It's all political correctne ..s,"
Rowland said.

Things that make you go Hmmm...


By SHERI CARDER
Lake City Community College busi-
ness education professor
Florida. Finland. There are
some obvious differences.
But there are things we'd
never anticipate and I bet
these will make you smile
when you read them. Here
are some things the Finns
could learn from Americans.
1. Fitted sheets. Imagine
a whole country of flat sheets
all the same size, no twin,
queen, or king. For big beds,
you use two lapped-over
sheets. Waking up swathed
like a mummy every
morning amongst your
untucked sheets is normal.
2. A gallon of milk. It
doesn't exist. Because it
wouldn't fit in the
refrigerator, which is about
the size that college students
use in the dorm. You buy
milk only in quarts or pints
(but they use metric
measurements). And whole
milk is a no-no there; they
call it "full fat."
3. Clothes dryers. Few
homes had them. Apartments


have "drying rooms" with
clotheslines and big blowers.
Me, I just
had to hang
wet clothes
up all over
the
apartment
for two
days. Finns
don't want Carder
the cost of
the electricity to run dryers;
they use that
electricity to run their saunas
instead.
4. Bathtubs. Shower
doors. Due to the small
interior spaces, you won't
find bathtubs even in most
hotels. The only bath I had
for a whole year was in-a
hotel suite in Latvia. The
shower consumes the entire
bathroom, which drains into
a hole in the center of the
floor. A long-handled
squeegee is used to push all
remaining water into the hole
to semi-dry the bathroom.
Don't take your towel or
clean clothes into the
bathroom with you;


everything gets wet. If you
forget something and step
back into the bathroom, your
sock feet are soaked. You can
sit on the commode, brush
your teeth, and take a shower
all at the same time.
5. "Black Monday."
There is no Thanksgiving (an
American holiday only) so
there is no "one" big
shopping day. There are no
huge sales. Even after
Christmas, the department
stores mark things down to
20-30 percent off. I went to
the major store two weeks
after Christmas to scoop up
bargains (Finland is one of
the most expensive countries
in Europe) and everything
was gone. Unlike America,
where we continuously mark
out-of-season items down
until they are sold, the Finns
are through with winter by
mid-January (at least
mentally). Sleeveless linen
dresses were on the
mannequins while it was still
-10 degrees Celsius!
6. Complaining. It's
simply not done. Customers


don't ask for refunds or
adjustments. Finns are
stalwarts. They just "buck
up" and learn to deal with
whatever happens. They are
true introverts who neither
ask for help nor offer any
help on their own. And,
unlike Americans, they would
never criticize their country
or their president. Overall,
they consider themselves
pessimists; I'd call them
extremely pragmatic.
7. Driving to work. It's
easy in Florida winters. You
start your car; you drive to
work. In Finland, you must
factor in the time to scrape
ice off all the windows and
headlights; scrape deep snow
off the hood, trunk and top to
lieep from blinding other
drivers as it blows off your
car while driving; remove ice
from the keyhole in the door;
(nd rock the car back and
forth to free it from the
"snow fort" made when the
snow plow buried your car.
Arid when it gets to -40
degrees Celsius, your battery
won't start if you weren't able


to plug in your car to an
overnight heating post.
8. Checking accounts.
The only way to pay bills is
online. An extra fee is
charged if you try to pay in
cash at the place of business.
There are no checks
anywhere. Utilities, landlords
and travel agencies won't
even accept cash. Money is
transferred online from your
bank account directly into
their account. If you don't
have a computer, you take
cash downtown to the bank
and they pay the bill online
from the bank's account and
charge you a $7 fee per bill
paid. Of course, stores and
restaurants do accept cash

for merchandise.
9. Pecan pie. Alas, there
is no Karo syrup in Finland.
It's too cold to grow corn
there and Karo is corn syrup.
There was one tiny American
food store in Helsinki that
occasionally got it in stock
for $12.50 per bottle. Pecans
are also fairly rare there and
I took eight pounds with me.
And there's no vanilla

flavoring. I had items shipped
to me and I figured it cost
around $30 to make a pie.
The Finns hated the pecan
pie because it was far, far too
sweet for them. European
desserts are almost bland
when compared to ours for
sweetness and sugar.
End notes: I adored
Finland and the Finns. They
were lovely people and never
failed to offer help if I asked
for it. And you know
Americans, we're never afraid
to ask for what we want. The
above comments are merely
observations about the
cultural differences. It's
amazing to me because
Finland is considered the
European country most like
the United States.
Carder was a Fulbright
Lecturer in Finland this past
year, teaching at Laurea
University, of Applied Science
in Helsinki. She has returned
to the position of business
education professor and can be
