In 2001, a massive wild-
fire in Mallory Swamp lit
up the night skies in
Lafayette County, burning
a large section of acreage
for many days, and sent
clouds of thick, heavy
smoke. throughout the area
and as far south as Tampa.
Today, plant and animal
life has-been carefully re-
stored to approximately 70
percent of the swamp,

eni artu ~" Matters..u. ,



Heart Matters .. .


"Let's talk." Two very
important words because
communication is the way
we share life with other
people. This happens in
two ways: 1) Revealing
something about ourselves
to another person and 2) re-
ceiving a revealed message
from another person. By
this we share our experi-
ences and feelings, (our
lives) with others and they
get to know us. We listen to
their experiences and feel-
ings (their lives) and we get
to know them. We learn
what they enjoy and what
they, don't, what makes
them happy and what
makes them angry. This is
sharing, life. Sounds so
easy-but there is a problem.
Remember the old game
"gossip?"


One person whispered a
message to another and
they passed it on down the
line, only saying it once per
person and then finding out
what the message was from
the last person. It was never
the same as in the begin-
ning! That game shows a
clear picture of the break-
down of communication in
real life. Just because one
person says something,
doesn't mean the other per-
son heard it or got the same
interpretation.
This is a major problem in
so many of our relation-
ships! Add to that the fact
that when we are trying to
communicate something
beyond a simple fact, we
may struggle with how to
express ourselves. Misun-
derstandings result that


lead to wrong conclusions
about what the other per-
son thinks or feels. Then
another response is gener-
ated from that wrong con-
clusion and what started
out very small can turn into
a big mess! This happens
every day in our relation-
ships with our spouses,
children, friends, co-work-
ers, etc. Relationships end
tragically over simple mis-
understandings what can
we do?
The Apostle Paul raised
an interesting question in 1
Corinthians 2:11 when he
asked, "Who among men
knows the thoughts of a
man except the spirit of the
man, which is in him?" Es-
sentially Paul is saying that
only you know what is go-
ing on in your mind, others

can't read it. It is so impor-
tant to communicate what
you are thinking and feel-
ing!
Every relationship, espe-
cially marriages need to
make time to "share life" to-
gether. According to re-
search, less thaji half of all:
married couples in o0ur
cotintry spend time daily
communicating their
thoughts about what hap-
pened in their day and how
they felt about them. Arid
we wonder why so many
marriages are growing
apart! Before we get mar-
ried, we can't seem to talk
enough, remember? We
say, "I do" to share our
lives, but: once we are mar-
ried We share a house, bills
and responsibilities and we
can get so busy we stop
sharing our lives.
Even outside of marriage,
relationships suffer from
poor communication. We
get the wrong, impression
from someone's comments
or body language or the fact
that they weren't as friendly
the last time we saw them.
Isn't it amazing that we im-
mediately assume that it
has something to do with

us, could it be possibly be
they are just having a bad
day? For that matter, why
not ask them if anything is
wrong, you may be sur-
prised that the problem has
nothing to do with you and
in fact might be something
you could help with! If you
want any relationship to
improve, make the time to
talk. Share something of
yourself and give them the
chance the share something
with you ask questions,
show interest, and share
life! Isn't that .the whole
point of a relationship? In-
vest some time communi-
cating with someone impor-
tant this week because your
heart matters!

NFCC offers $500

scholarships

to five luck

neW or readmitted

students
The North Florida Com-
munity College Foundation,
Inc. announced it will award
$500 one-time scholarships
to five newly enrolled or
readmitted students for the
spring term beginning Jan. 7,
2008. Deadline for consider-
ation is Dec. 10, 2007. Selec-
tion will be by random
drawing on Dec. 14.
All new-to-NFCC and
readmitted students who
have been fully admitted,
advised and registered for
classes by Dec. 10, are eligi-
ble for the drawing. Stu-
dents must be registered
full-time in either a, degree-
seeking or certificate pro-
gram~ at NFCC. Previous fi-
nancial aid awards or schol-
arships are not a factor in el-
igibility. This will be a one-
time only award valued at
$500.
The idea of offering schol-
arships to boost spring en-
rollment originated from the
NFCC Foundation Board of
Directors and was adopted
unanimously. Gina Ruther-
ford, executive director of
the NFCC Foundation, Inc.
and Mary Anne Wheeler,
dean of enrollment services,
are coordinating the effort,
which encourages students
to be admitted and register
early for classes.
For additional informa-
tion, please contact Wheeler
by telephone 850-973-1605,

or Rutherford at 850-973-

fordg@nfcc.edu. The NFCC
spring schedule is available

NFCC President Morris Steen to retire


!


During his six year tenure
as North Florida Communi-
ty College President, Morris
G. Steen Jr. saw NFCC
ranked sixth in the nation
among community colleges
and led the college to its first
new construction in 40
years. After having over-
seen more accomplishments
at NFCC than imaginable,
including re-connecting
NFCC to the six-county
community it serves, Steen
has announced he will retire
in the summer of 2008,
Steen was inaugurated
into the presidency April 28
of 2002 and immediately be-
gan directing a total re-
vamping of the college's
programs. The former direc-
tor of adult, vocational and
continuing education at
NFCC, Steen was interim
president from June 2001
until April 2002, serving af-
ter former president Beverly
Grissom retired.
His appointment was a
historical moment in that he
was the first NFCC alumnus
chosen as its president.
"I have enjoyed my tenure
as president of North Flori-
da Community College,"
Steen said Nov. 13 after
sharing his plans early that
morning with his senior
management team and later
that evening making a for-
mal public announcement
during the. NFCC Board of
Directors' meeting. "It has
been a great cap to a won-
derful career of work. I can't
think of anything I would
have rather done," Steen
said.
"We are certainly disap-
pointed that President Steen
won't be able to continue
past the summer of 2008,
but at the same time, Presi-
dent Steen has done a good
job," said NFCC Board
Chairman John Maultsby.
"He's worked all his life and
will have time with his fam-
ily now," he added. "Presi.-'
dent Steen has assembled a
very strong management
team, and NFCC will be


able to look forward even
though he [Steen] won't be
there beyond the summer of
2008," Maultsby said.
A leader who always di-
rects attention away from
himself and gives credit to
his staff and faculty for the
college's advancements,
Steen said they are the ones
who have moved NFCC for-
ward. "I haven't done any-
thing, it was the manage-
ment and staff." When he
was inaugurated, he said in
his speech that he believed
NFCC's best days were
ahead and he believed
NFCC could make a differ-
ence in the lives of the peo-
ple it serves.
Some of the advances that
indicate Steen's prophecy
has indeed come true in-
clude NFCC being named
sixth in the nation among
community colleges; the up-
coming graduation of the
first registered nurse's class
begun three years ago; the
first new construction in 40
years with the opening this
year of a $6 million state-of-
the-art science building; a 70
percent increase in NFCC
land holdings as NFCC
went from 96 to 163 acres;
and the enactment of the
first 20-year facilities master
plan in 2003 which led to se-
curing $22.2 million in pub-
lic renovation and construc-
tion funds to make those
plans possible.
"I'm a product of this
campus," Steen said of
NFCC.
A retired Navy captain
and pilot who served two
combat tours of duty in
Vietnam and a former com-
manding officer of the
Naval Air Station, Steen
grew up in the Moseley Hall
and Shady Grove area of
North Florida, attended
high school in. Perry and


How to wash your hands


As it turns out, the tem-
perature of the water has
little or no effect on a good
scrub's germ-fighting abili-
ties. "If the water you use is
hot enough to actually kill
germs, it will bum you,"
says Dr. Lamont Sweet,
Chief Health officer of the
Canadian province of
Prince Edward Island
The U.S. Standard
The U.S. Centers for Dis-
ease Control and Preven-
tion recommends a vigor-
ous 20-second scrub, once
hands are lathered. (To
keep track of time, sing
"Happy Birthday" twice in


your head.)
.THE TRUE TEST: HOW
WELL DO YOU WASH
YOUR HANDS?
Rub a couple of drops of
cooking oil into your hands.
Sprinkle ground cinna-
mon onto your hands and
wring your hands together
to rub it in.
Wash your hands as you
would normally.
The amount of cinnamon
remaining is the measure of
how well you wash.

"I am fortunate to come

college changed my life as a
youngster."
Steen and his wife, the
former Judy Gilliam of Nor-
folk, Va., reside in Shady
Grove. They have three
adult children, Hayne,
Heath and Brittany.
A quiet, unpretentious
man with an uncanny sense
of humor, Steen plans to en-
joy his small farm and said
ideally his retirement from
the college would be quiet
with no fanfare so he can
ride off into the sunset on
his tractor.
Steen had been in discus-
sions with Maultsby and the
board about his impending
retirement plans. He intends
to continue in his role of
president until the NFCC
Presidential Search Com-
mittee selects his replace-
ment. Maultsby said he gave

"It was proposed at the
board meeting that we limit
the search to the six-county

that doesn't produce a can-
didate, then we'll go nation-
al."

How

Submitted By:
The First Grade Scientists
Mrs. Pippi Cashman, Pro-
gram Assistant for the Fam-
ily Nutrition Program
through the University of
Florida, came to visit the
classrooms along with her
new friend Organ Annie.
Annie shared a lesson with
the students about how to
make smart choices.
She brought along her"
friends "The Organwise
Guys." They are organs
that live inside the human
body. First was Sir Re-
brum, this is your brain that
does your thinking and
controls the body. The Kid-
ney Brothers are twins, and
they reminded students to
drink lots of water so they
can keep their blood clean.
Then Luigi Liver talked
about how he helps get rid
of the "yucky" stuff in the
body. Hardy Heart Pumps
blood to all parts of the
body. The next organ was
really long and it looked
like a squiggly, wiggly
worm (this was a child's


description). It was Peri
Stolic (your intestines) and
it helps move the garbage
out of the body. Peter Pan-
creas announced that his
job was to help control sug-
ar in the body. Pepto the
Stomach helps break down
the food you eat so your
body can use it for energy.
Food goes into this organ
after you swallow it. The
last organ was Windy the
Lungs. She fills up with air
when you breathe.
Mrs. Pippi and Annie
had everyone sit up
straight and take a deep
breath so that Windy could
do her job. Annie's last
two friends were not really
organs, but they are very
important parts of the
body. They help to keep
you standing tall and let
you do a lot of activities.
Annie reminded the 1st
graders to exercise so that
Calci Bone and Madame
Muscle would become
very strong.
Before Organ Annie and
her friends from the Organ-
wise Guys Club left, Mrs.


Pippi asked the children if
they would like to join this
exciting club and become
their newest members. A
"YES" was heard through-
out the room. It was simple
she said, there are only four
club rules:
Eat a low-fat diet
Eat a high-fiber diet
Drink lots of water
Get regular exercise
Everyone agreed these
were simple rules to follow.
Children learn to begin
making smart choices
everyday about eating a
healthy breakfast, lunch,
dinner, and of course
snacks. It's just like putting
fuel in your car we must
put good fuel (energy) into
our bodies so that we can
drive around until we are at
least a 100 years old (or old-
er).
LES 1st grade Scientists
would like to say a special
thank you to Mrs. Pippi
and Organ Annie for com-
ing and sharing informa-
tion about keeping our bod-
ies healthy.

Study shows
most consumers
look to local
paper when
making
purchasing
decisions

When Florida consumers
want a new car, need a new
appliance, or are in search
of the best deals at local su-
permarket_, most of them,,
regardless of their age, still
turn to their local newspa-
per.
A statewide research
study, conducted for the
Florida Press Association
by American Opinion Re-
search, finds that two-
thirds (66%) of those who
use any advertising say
newspapers are their pri-.
mary source of local sales
and shopping information.
Even among younger
aduls, ages 18 to 29, almost
half (47%) say newspapers
are their priniary source.
The Internet ranked second
among this age group at
19%. Newspapers are even.
stronger among other age
groups.
"There is a false percep-
tion among many people
that newspapers have be-
come antiquated," said Car-
ol Hudler, president and
publisher of The News-
Press and Gannett Sun
Coast Newspapers. "These
study results are not sur-
prising to those in' the in-
dustry, but in a changing
world, they confirm the val-
ue of a newspaper's porta-

ability and its in-depth local
shopping information.
The study found that
Florida consumers look to
newspapers as the top
source of advertising for a
wide variety of products
and services including gro-
ceries, major appliances,
autos, hardware, real es-
tate, employment and local
entertainment. Groceries,
jobs and entertainment are
particularly strong, with 6
in 10 consumers saying
newspapers are their main
source.
These are some other key
findings of the survey:

82% (10.2 million) of
adults in Florida read at
least one newspaper during
the week, much higher
than the national average of
52%. "
Newspaper readership


advertising
is strong among all demo-
graphic groups, even
among the youngest adults
ages 18 to 24.
Almost 6 in 10 Floridi-
ans read a weekly or com-
munity newspaper.
"This study confirms that
Florida consumers are avid
newspaper readers," said
Hudler. "It also shows
there is. a strong potential
for newspapers to further
build readership."
A total of 1,000 inter-
views were conducted dur-
ing the study, using a sys-
tematic random selection of
telephone households and
respondents within each
household. Results have a
margin of error plus or mi-
nus 3.2 percentage points.

Sweet potatoes can be en-
joyed year round but are
traditionally enjoyed during
the holiday season. Sweet
potatoes are as American as
apple pie, and even more
so. Sweet potatoes have
been growing in the South-
eastern United States from
as early as 1648.
In Colonial days, sweet
potatoes were an item of
trade and shipped from the
south tb northern cities.
The sweet potato was an es-
sential food for all the
colonies in the days before
modem preservation. This
root crop kept hunger from
the doors of many genera-
tions of our ancestors. Dur-
ing the trying times of the
Revolutionary and Civil
Wars, it was a staple food.
A Colonial Physician even
recommended sweet pota-
toes especially for children
because of its value in com-
bating nutritional disease.
During times of coffee
shortage especially during
the Civil War, sweet pota-
toes were used as a substi-
tute. The potato was cut


into thin pieces, dried,
parched, ground and
brewed. In days passed,
the sweet potato patch was
a common sight on most
farms. The sweet potato
ranked second only to the
Irish potato among veg-
etable crops in the United
States in the early days of
the century.
Just plain baking the
sweet potato is a great way
to enjoy. Older generations
of school children and
workers packed the dinner
bucket with links of
sausage and baked sweet
potatoes. The sweet potato
was the snack food of our
grandparents. Children
would whine "I'm hungry"
and told "take an old, cold
tater and wait." Country
music singer Little Jimmy
Dickens sang the song
"Take an.Old, Cold Tater
and Wait.
Sweet potatoes are very
nutritious. They are high in
carbohydrates, fiber, vita-
min C and potassium.
They have the added bene-
fit of having five times the
recommended daily al-
lowance of vitamin A and
are high in beta-carotene.
Beta-carotene acts as an


Take time to

be thankful!
During the busy festivi-
ties of Thanksgiving day,
don't forget to thank God
for all His many bless-

anti-oxidant in the body.
Anti-oxidants are thought
to slow down the aging
process, development of
cancer, cataracts, and heart
disease. In fact, the Center
for Science in the Public In-
terest ranks the sweet pota-
to #1 of all vegetables in
nutritional content.
In spite of the nostalgia
and history of the nutri- .
tious sweet potato, it no
longer holds a prominent
position on America's din-
ner table. Per capital con-
sumption in the United
States was 31 lbs. in 1920;
recent years it dipped be-
low 4 lbs. per capital.

n spite of losing seven players from
last season. Lafayette High School
soccer coach David Palomino likes
what he saw in watching his team
open the 2007-08 season with a 3-1


win over St. John's last week. If the younger
players were apprehensive at all, it was not
that noticeable as the team appeared confi-
dent going into the first game.
"I believe they were a little anxious before
the game," said Coach Palomino, "but this is
a new season and we have a number of
young players who have started the learn-


ing process."
Coach Palomino feels the younger play-
ers will soon catch up with the returning
players. "It will allow the younger players
to mature and sharpen their skills," said the
Hornet coach. "We are looking for the
younger players and those coming back to
merge as a team."


Since their existence, Lafayette has never
lost to St. John's and refused to do so in their
opening garie. Team captain Carlos Ne-
grete, during his team's warm-up, indicated
such with some encouraging words. "We
have played this team before and beat

However, we did play
well in other areas and

The biggest series of play for Lafayette came
in the fourth quarter with 4:23 remaining on the
scoreboard. With Lafayette nursing a 14-13 ad-
vantage, Jay moved the football to the Hornet
8-yard line. Facing a fourth-and-four from the
eight, Jay's quarterback Brandt Hendricks was
pressured by Lafayette's defense. Hendricks
was caught behind the line of scrimmage but
managed to get the pass off before being
brought down.

Land inks with


Central Florida

Garland says Land

and CF a good fit
by. Ed Taylor
Sports Correspondent
Senior Natalie Land made it official on
the first day of November signing period
by signing a letter-of-intent to play softball
next season with Central Florida. Land
helped lead her Lafayette team to the state
semi-finals last year. Nearly every school in
the state of Florida recruited Land and she
was atop many schools list of recruits. Ac-
cording to Lady Hornet coach Derek Gar-
land, she was definitely on top of Central
Florida's.
"Natalie was their number one recruit,"
said the Lafayette coach. "She was their
number one recruit." Virginia Tech and
Georgia Tech also expressed interest in
signing Land. She chose Central Florida
over Florida.
Land's father, Marc Land, said he liked
the choice his daughter made. "We talked
about it but when it came down to a deci-
sion it was hers," said Marc Land. "We are
excited for her and absolutely pleased with
her decision. We are within three hours so
we should be able to make all the games
we can."
Marc did not see any problem with the
physical .conditioning that is demanding at
the next level. "Natalie is pretty athletic and
strong," he said. "She understands she has a
lot of work to do. Central Florida is expect-
ing a lot of good things out of Natalie."
While Land is excited about her new
school, she is in no hurry for her high
school days to end. "I definitely do not

them." he said. "We have
not lost to this team before
and we are not going to lose
to them today."
The Hornets took a 1-0
lead in the first 40 minutes
of play on a goal by Alberto
Lopez, who seemed to be a
problem St. John's could not
solve.
"Alberto was able to shift
the direction of the ball,
took some long distance
shots, and challenged with
his speed two and three
players at a time," said
Palomino. Lopez's goals
came in the 35th minute of
the first half. Before the first
half ended, Lopez had to
leave the game after two St.
John's defenders blocked
Lopez and he received an
injury to a leg from kicks.
St. John's tied the match at
1-1 in the opening minutes
of the second half. Led by
Omar Rangel, who strug-
gled in the first 15 minutes
of the game, the Hornets
took charge of the match
and never looked back.
Rangel took charge of mid-
field assisted by Arturo Ne-
grete, Jose Luis Rubio and
Francisco Negrete. Rangel
missed a penalty shot for
the Hornets but he gave his
team a 2-1 lead with a goal
at the 21st minute.
The Hornets added to the
score when a nice cross
from the left field rested in
front of Sergio Nunez who
scooped the ball, lowered it
and deposited in the St.
John's net for the final mar-
gin. "We have been looking
forward to the unfolding of
this season," said Coach
Palomino. "Our team is
made of some great young
talent and they have a heart
for the game."
Coach Palimino said he
had some great expectations
for this year's rendition of
Hornet soccer. "We have
been accustomed to the fast
pace, aggressiveness of last


year," he said. "This year we,
have a tremendous poten-
tial and are going to chal-
lenge this year's group to
top last season when we fin-
ished second in the district."
In junior varsity action,
the boys JV team posted a 1-
0 win over host Taylor
County earlier. Arturo
"Pickiry" Negrete scored the
lone goal for the junior Hor-
nets who improved to 1-0
on the season.
In :girls junior varsity
play, Lafayette fell to 'the
same Taylor County girls
team 1-0. Taylor County
had 12 shots at the goal to
only two for Lafayette. The
junior Lady Hornets look
impressive at times and had
a couple of nice runs up the
middle of the field but
failed to convert.
Taylor County scored in
the 10th minute of the sec-
ond half and held off two
'nice attempts by Lafayette
to tie the game.

A.T.M ee
(ABSTINENCE TILL MARRIAGE)
By Carolyn C. Demps
HELPING YOUR TEENS DEVELOP REFUSAL SKILLS
Teach your teen the N.I.C.E. way to say "no". Teens are sensitive to peer
pressure. They do not want their peers to make fun of.them or ridicule them.
So when your teen is confronted by a situation that violates his or her values,
comfort, or safety, he or she should be prepared to say "NO" firmly, but
graciously, by following four steps:
N "say no." not "maybe" or "later". Teach your teen to set boundaries and
be decisive.
I Follow with an "I" statement: I plan to wait several years before I have
sex." Or "I'm not going to have sex until I marry." Or "Sex isn't part of my
game plan now."
C If pressure continues, "change." Teach your teen to change the topic.
"Did you see the game last night?" Change their conversation. "Luke is over
there, I need give him something." Change the location. "I have to go to the
kitchen."
E if these strategies do not help, your teen needs an exit plan. Teens should
leave a bad situation immediately. It is a good idea for you and your teen to
have a prearranged "code phrase". That means "come and pick me up. And
hurry!"

take the 13-0 lead. Both
Royal scores came on mis-
cues by the Hornets. The
Royals got first possession
and it appeared the Hor-
nets had them just where
they wanted until a rough-
ing the kicker penalty gave
the Royals a first down and
the ball in Hornet territory.
On a third and seven play,
Hendrick's hit Hunter
Boutwell in 'the flats.
Boutwell ran the ball into
the end zone for a 6-0 Roy-
al lead. Tyler DeGraaf's
PAT split the uprights for a
7-0 game.
It was three and out for
the Hornets on their first
possession. With 7:09 left in
the opening quarter, Jay
marched 71-yards on 12
plays to make it a 13-0
game. The Royals missed
on the extra point try.
Lafayette coughed up the
ball on first down play
when Eric McIntryre was
hit at the line of scrimmage.
Jay recovered the loose ball
with excellent field posi-
tion. "We went out and


action.
"We got to play every-
body and we like that," said
the Lady Hornet mentor. "It
was a good win. Kelsey
(Land) did a good job for us
on the boards. We want her
to shoot the ball more be-
cause she is a good shooter.
Eileen (Givens) did a good
job on defense for us, out
pressuring the ball. Carthe-
sia had a great game at the
point and she is our leader.
What we get from Shine
and Natalie is what we ex-
pect every night."
Reid had seven assists in
the game (unofficial) and
pulled down nine re-
bounds. Land had three as-
sists and 12 rebounds.
Coach Blankenship said
his team has a ways to go
before getting where he
wants, them. "Overall we
are happy with the win but
we know it is the first game
of a long season," he said.


made some mistakes early,"
said Coach Pearson. "They
are a. good team and they
took advantage of those
mistakes."
Coach Pearson said his
team showed a lot of heart
by coming back from the 12
point deficit. "To come back
against a quality team like
Jay, they did show a lot of
heart," he said. "Our play-
ers did not quit. They were
tired but came back and
beat a quality team. Com-
ing' from behind in the
playoffs, we will take it and
move on."
From the Hornet 27-
yard line, Jamal Reid came
up with a big interception
of a Hendrick's pass. The
interception set up the
next drive for Lafayette
that took nine plays to
march 70 yards with
Hempstead scoring on a
quarterback sneak. Blade
Herring added the extra
point for a 13-7 game with
7:20 to play.

score. An outstanding eatch
by Reid put the ball on the
Royal's 1-yard line. Hemp-
stead was sacked for a 4-
yard loss bringing up a sec-
ond-and-goal at the five.
Facing a third-and-goal,
McInlhtyre on a second effort
run scored from 3-yards out
tying the game at 13-13.
Herring's extra point gave
the Hornets a one point
lead that held up.
'Just before the half,
Lafayette attempted to add
to the score on a field goal
by Herring from the 10-
yard line., Herring's kick
was wide left.
It was the Hornets de-
fense that showed up in the
final :two periods. With
10:51 to play in the third pe-
riod, the Royals did move
the football inside Hornet
territory but a strong defen-
sive stand kept the Royals
off the scoreboard. Jeff Mi-
ara batted down a pass
from Hendrick's on a fourth
down play.
"Jay is the type of team
that does not make mis-
takes," said Coach Pearson.
"They sit back and wait for
you to make the mistakes.
We talked about that all
week and then went right
out and made them. But I
am really proud of our guys


for staying settled and get-
ting scores," said Pearson.
"We had some big stops in
the game. Earlier we had
them third and 15 but they
hit a big pass. We won the
game in the second half
when we made some fourth
down stops."
The Hornets only man-
aged 296 yards in total- of-
fense. The Hornets massed
202 yard rushing led by
McIntyre's 106 yards on 20
carries. Hempstead showed
he was not a one directional
quarterback and he could
run the ball as well. He
rushed for 62-yards on 10
attempts. Kyle Pearson to-
taled 34-yards on five tries
but his two carries in the
second quarter 26-yards
helped the Hornets to score
their first touchdown.
Hempstead completed
three passes for 94-yards.
Reid was on the receiving
end of all three comple-
tions.
On the defensive side of
the football, Thomas Byrd
had nine tackles and six as-
sists. Kristopher Pearson
finished with six tackles
and four assists. Kyle Pear-
son and Alex Greshem had
seven tackles apiece. Joey
Watson had five solo hits
and J.D. Richards came up
four.

Past Track donates $500 to LHS


Lafayette High School has
received a $500 grant from
the ExxonMobil Educational
Alliance program to support
the school's reading pro-
grams. Fast Track Stores,
with an Exxon branded con-
venience store located on US
27 in Mayo worked with
school officials to secure the


grant, which is one of 4,000
available to schools across
the country serviced by
Exxon or Mobil stations. The
grants were made possible
by funding from the Exxon-
Mobil Corporation.
"Lafayette High School
works hard to make learn-
ing interesting and fun,"


said Annette Howell, Store
Manager for Fast Track
Stores. "As an Exxon retailer,
we are proud to help young
people of Lafayette County."

and the view .was spectacu-
lar. Others said they could
see parts of Branford in the
distance. Y
The purpose of the cere-
mony, according to Jerry
Scarborough, Executive Di-
rector of SRWMD, was to
celebrate the progress that
has been made since the
massive restoration project
began in 2003. Funding for
restoring Mallory Swamp
came from a $1.9 million
Wetland Reserve Program
Cooperative Agreement.
Coombe commented on
the restoration project and
said it was one of the
largest "restoration project
only" in the nation. He also
praised SRWMD, other
agencies, and the county
commissioners for their
hard work and dedication
to restoring Mallory
Swamp to its natural state
prior to the devasting fire
in 2001.
Working together, SR-
WMD and NRCS have
made it possible for the citi-
zens of Lafayette County as
well as surrounding areas
to continue enjoying the
beauty of Mallory Swamp
through activities such as
walking trails, hunting,
viewing and observing
wildlife, fishing, bicycling,
hiking, horseback riding
and all-terrain-vehicle des-
ignated riding trails.
'"Through the continued
success of these partner-


ships and the long-term
commitment of SRWMD,
the restoration of Mallory
Swamp will benefit us all
by protecting our water re-
sources, reducing the risk of
wildfire, providing habitat
for special plants and ani-
mals, and providing a
unique recreational place
for people to enjoy," Scar-
borough said.
Mallory Swamp was first
owned by Richard Sears in
the 1940s. Sears was the
President of Standard Lum-
ber Company and, in the
1920s, he was cofounder of
Sears, Roebuck and Compa-
ny.
In 1952, Mallory Swamp

I, Kurt S. Browning, Secretary of State of the
State of Florida, do hereby give notice that

da, on January 29, 2008, for the ratification
or rejection of'a proposed revision to the con-

CONSTITUTIONAL REVISION
ARTICLE VII, SECTIONS 3, 4, AND 6
ARTICLE XII, SECTION 27
(Legislative)

Ballot Title:
PROPERTY TAX EXEMPTIONS; LIMITA-
TIONS ON PROPERTY TAX
ASSESSMENTS

Ballot Summary:
This revision proposes changes to the State
Constitution relating to property taxation.
With respect to homestead property, this revi-
sion: (1) increases the homestead exemption
except for school district taxes and (2) allows
homestead property owners to transfer up
to $500,000 of their Save-Our-Homes benefits
to their next homestead. With respect to
nonhomestead property, this revision (3) pro-
vides a $25,000 exemption for tangible
personal property and (4) limits assessment
'Increases for specified nonhomestead real
property except for school district taxes.

In more detail, this revision:
(1) Increases the homestead exemption by ex-
empting the assessed value between $50,000
and $75,000. 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-
linrquishing 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 newv 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.

stead exemption when it was less than
$25,000 and did not apply uniformly to prop-
erty taxes levied by all local governments.

repealed if a future constitutional amendment

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 In the
general election held In November of 2008.

es for specified real property shall first apply
to the 2009 tax roll if this revision Is approved

vision is approved in the general election held

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 loaves 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 White(r) 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 they
bake. Self-rising flour and corn meal already contain baking
powder, soda and salt, so they are perfect for making quick
breads.

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 pan and
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.

BREADS
Time is always at a premi-

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 in the 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, and 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 becopne 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


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,

Diapers: More Than Just a Bigger Size
Most parents think that they 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 size, to keep babies safe as they grow.
* Rear-facing car seats are required for babies until they're 1I year
old regardless of weight. Infant car seats are ideal for this stage
and can be used during the first year until baby reaches 20 to
22 pounds. Once a baby reaches this weight, change to a con-
vertible car seat (but still place rear-facing until 1 year).


FAMILY FEATURES ,

D otiniew parents "Ooh" and
"Aht how their babies

.J first iles, their first words
and 01 new tooth is cele-
brated and documied in the baby book.
New mommies an developmental milone, yet few feel
confident in knowiiwhen their baby's
changes signal a ne tage and how to
address it.
When it comes to sing children,
sometimes the greatechallenge is staying
one step ahead, readYr rather than
surprised by the nm stage. Getting a
Child to start eating ba food can be a
challenge, and a humous and messy one
at that! Parents have tonow the ins and
outs of rear-facing and ant-facing car
seats. There's even a scace to diapers.
They not only come in (ferent sizes, but
today's diapers change vh babies as they
grow and develop. It's tobad babies don't
come with manuals, became parenting
doesn't always come instttively.
"Parenting is such a revrding experi-
ence and there are so man)Jifferent mile-
stones to look forward to, y. it can be
difficult for parents to undqtand what
to introduce and when," sa3 Dr. Loraine
Stern, M.D., clinical professor of pedia-
trics at UCLA and a membebf the
Pampers Parenting Institute. Parents
want to make sure they are ding all
they can to promote their chilen's

The holiday shopping countdown
lyU


oa.r F


i ie ll


FAMILY FEATURES
"BLACK FRIDAY" has lorbeen regarded as the
kick off of the holiday sholpng season. However,
now that retailers are unvei6g their Christmas
products earlier every yeaind catering to the
needs of late shoppers, thaores are filled with
people in pursuit of the ppect gift anywhere
between Labor Day and Tcember 25.
In fact, according to thiqational Retail
Federation, the number e'extreme" early birds
and procrastinators has bn on the rise in recent
years. Last year, 40 percit of all consumers
began their holiday showing before Halloween,
and 15 percent of consumers reported that they
had not begun any of tlir shopping by December
5. As a result, retailers e updating their products,
merchandising and meeting plans to meet the
needs of these two veidifferent sets of shoppers.
One clear example 'how this has affected
the retail world can bseen in the greeting card
industry. Christmas mains the top.card-sending
occasion, with nearlywo billion cards sent
annually, and greetir card manufacturers have
taken note of this eviving consumer demand.
"We have definite noticed the trend of con-
sumers pushing up ie unofficial start of the
holiday shopping sison," said Heather Bentley,
Christmas ProgranManager at American
Greetings. "In response to this, shoppers will
start to see the cais in stores by November 1,
and the completetoliday card line will be
available before lianksgiving."
"We have alsoenhanced our offering of con-
venience items ke gift card holders for the late
season shopperAnd overall our holiday cards
reflect a more onversational tone and generally
sendable quality to help shoppers with multiple
tasks to get irand out of the card aisle more
quickly," Berley said.


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-inspired
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.


pqp M- b frd cts


t p cia l o.


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.
* Make the best use of the time you have:
Use modern conveniences and opportunities
to get last minute gifts and cards out. Many


True early birds can use their spare time to wrapickages with warmth, texture and color. For
instance, new or gently used scarves can act like Mbbon" while mittens and gloves continue the
cozy theme as "bows."


F or those shoppers getting out before Halloween
costumes even appear, remember: time is your
friend. Holiday trend experts offer the following tips
for taking advantage of the extra time you have
given yourself to get everything done.
* Use that extra time to actually shop: Reward
yourself by taking more time to peruse the aisles
to find the perfect gift, card, wrap and acces-
sories for everyone on your list.
This year you can enjoy spending some of thE
extra time in the greeting card aisle. American
Greetings has new sound, song and light cards
for the holiday, which feature seasonal tunes an
bright, beautiful images to put anyone into the
spirit. Because you are getting such a head stai
you'll have time to listen to every sound, hum
along with every song and smile at every festi'
scene that the cards offer before choosing you
favorites.
Enjoy the lack of traffic: Congratulations, yc
have ensured yourself the avoidance of long
lines and crowded malls. Take advantage of
your situation to actually enjoy your shoppi
experience in a leisurely fashion. Since you
given yourself the luxury of allowing for a(
tional shipping time, you can even utilize f
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.
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 f
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
of the casual shoppers and
those just "hanging out"'
by doing so, which will
make your trip much more
efficient.
Take advantage of sales
... seriously: Just because
you weren't able to get a
jump on your shopping
doesn't mean you will
S'.w .h. ave to pay top dollar.
Retailers, recognizing the
trend of procrastination,
are introducing late season
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.
SBe craftier and flexible in
your gift presentation:
Trendy gift bags can add
style to any present. Fun

tion of a convenient gift.

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-
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

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!"

Clean Up
As a realtor, you never know. what
to expect %% hen 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 %%e walked in. the place was
really nice hi just needed a little
cleaning. We couldn't figure out why
the price as so reduced until we
turned on the %water main.
Suddenlyb water came pounIng our
of the ceiling, making the entire first
floor look like a hea\' rainstormI.
We rushed to rum off the water main. 1
As we stood dripping %tet. 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.)

FAMILY FEATURES

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 inyites you to begin
a new tradition around the dinner table with the help of these classic recipes.

simplifying the
details and
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 Bonjour
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 Fainily 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

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

broiler-safe and feature


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

THE MAIN
-. EVENT:
&. HOLIDAY
DINNER
Regardless of
whether your
... 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


%,


i~ .3
r ~


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 .bth 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!
