'Holiday Splendor' opens Nov. 25

A new design
twist for Christmas
at Pinewood
The splendor of the season
will come alive during the
eleventh annual Christmas at
Pinewood holiday home tour set
to open the day after Thanksgiv-
ing. This year's event theme is
"Holiday Splendor." Bedecked in
seasonal majesty from Novem-
ber 25 through January 1 to
delight visitors of all ages,
Pinewood Estate at Historic Bok
Sanctuary near Lake Wales, Fla.,
will showcase the 1930s Mediter-
ranean Revival mansion nestled
in seven acres designed by the
famous Olmsted landscape firm.
Christmas at Pinewood home
tour rates include general Sanc-
tuary admission.
A favorite holiday tradition for
thousands, the Christmas at
Pinewood event theme and
decor differ annually. This year is
no exception because a whole
new twist has been added to the
design concept. Rather than
have one interior designer create
and orchestrate the entire design
plan, eleven design teams repre-
senting eleven central Florida
companies will collaborate.
Each design team has selected a
favorite room to transform with
their artful creations. The
designs will accentuate the man-
sion's extraordinary colorful

Tunisian tile as well as other
architectural accents and
French, Italian and Spanish
antiques. Also new this year, visi-
tors may cast a vote for their
favorite room. The "People's
Choice" room designer will win
the use of Pinewood Estate for
an event.
"We are thrilled with the
diversity and creativity of the
plans presented," comments
Lisa Alien, event chairman. "The
varying room designs have
exceeded our expectations, and
the participating businesses are
excited to be a part of such a
prestigious event."
From practical to fanciful and
traditional to unconventional,
each room design will be
unique. With scenes to delight
the senses of people of all ages
and portray varying themes, the
decorated rooms will feature: a
handcrafted Nativity to reveal the
true spirit of Christmas; a snow-
covered botanical mood; gifts
gathered on an adventure
around the world; a nature sanc-
tuary filled with berries, birds
and butterflies; a simple ele-
gance; the "Twelve Days of
Christmas;" a sumptuous array
of holiday desserts; an intimate
family atmosphere of elegant
refinement; a panoply of daz-.
zling color and heavily adorned
garlands and a woodlands set-
ting with bird, pinecone and
acorn ornaments.

As day turns into dusk on Sat-
urday, December 10, a feeling of
enchantment will settle over
Pinewood Estate. It will be open
until 9 p.m. for a one-evening-
only tour so guests can enjoy the
splendor of the setting as thou-
sands of lights cast a gentle glow
throughout the historic man-
Originally built for Pennsyl-
vanian Charles A. Buck in the
exclusive Mountain Lake Com-
munity, Pinewood Estate lets vis-
itors step back in time to glimpse
a lifestyle enjoyed by wealthy
seasonal residents who retreated
from harsh northern winters.
Sanctuary founder Edward Bok
and his wife also had a winter
home in this community. A stroll
through the 20-room mansion
hints at a way of life of a bygone
era. Pinewood is listed on the
National Register of Historic
Places and is considered one of
Florida's finest examples of
Mediterranean architecture.
Visitors to Christmas at
Pinewood also can experience
Historic Bok Sanctuary's Olmst-
ed-designed landscape gardens,
205-foot-tall majestic belltower,
music of the world famous 60-
bell carillon and daily carillon
recitals at 1 and 3 p.m. For addi-
tional information on Christmas
at Pinewood, call Historic Bok
Sanctuary at (863) 676-1408 or

Polk County Days at the Community events

Salvador Dali Museum

The Salvador Dali Museum
will offer 50 percent off its regu-
lar admission to all Polk County
residents from now through
Wednesday, November 30, 2005
with proof of residency.
"We realize that Floridians
seeking a weekend getaway are
faced with increasing economic
considerations, most notably,
the increase in gas prices," said
Hank Hine, Executive Director of
the Salvador Dali Museum.
"We'd like to encourage people
to visit St. Petersburg by lower-
ing the admission price for our
guests traveling from other parts
of the state," he added.
Floridians taking advantage of
this offer will find it is their last
chance to view several remark-
able exhibits nearing the ends of
their run.
Returning Treasures:
Dali centennial exhibit
Following a long absence
from the Museum, 13 key works
are back on display after touring
extensively in 2004 as part of the
100th Anniversary of Dali's birth.
Selections from each of Dali's
four major periods: Early, Transi-
tional, Surreal and Classic are
once again on display including
Basket of Bread, (1926), Disinte-
gration of the Persistence of
Memory, (1952-54) and Daddy
Longlegs of the Evening Hope!
(1940). Returning Treasures
runs through the end of Novem-
DaliRevealed: Land,
Visitors won't want to miss
their final chance to see this
remarkable presentation of over
100 artworks from the Museum's
permanent collection. Works are
divided into four of Dali's persist-
ent categories of perception,
demonstrating his consuming
interest in popular culture. Dali
Revealed runs through the end
of November.
Tilting at Windmills:
Dali shows Cervantes
Several of Dali's illustrations
for Miguel Cervantes' classic are
on display in celebration of the
400th anniversary of its first pub-
lication. Also featured is a rare
example of Dali's bronze sculp-
ture, The Soul of Don Quixote,
cast in 1985. Tilting at Windmills
will be on display through Janu-
ary 2006.
Also on display is the Muse-
um's most recent acquisition,
Gala Contemplating the Mediter-
ranean Sea Which at Twenty
Meters Becomes A Portrait of
Abraham Lincoln (Homage to
Rothko) (1976). The large-scale

Buy, sell and

trade with the


Pages 7 and 8

masterpiece is Dali's most repro-
duced image and must be seen
to be believed.
The next comprehensive
exhibition at the Salvador Dali
Museum will feature Dali's work
juxtaposed with that of major
American artists of the post-
WWII era. Featured works by
Jackson Pollock, Andy Warhol,
Roy Lichtenstein, Willem de
Kooning, Mark Rothko, James
Rosenquist, and Chuck Close
will be presented to elucidate
Dali's ongoing exploration of
both painterly and image-based
means of representation.
Pollock To Pop: America's
Brush with Dali, made possible
by Progress Energy, will include
art borrowed from major Ameri-
can museums, including the
Metropolitan Museum of Art in
New York, the National Gallery
in Washington, D.C., private col-
lections and foundations. Hold-
ing the largest collection of Sal-
vador Dali works outside the
artist's native Spain, the Salvador
Dali Museum in St. Petersburg
will also display selections from
its permanent collection to com-
plement the exhibition.
The Salvador Dali Museum is
located at 1000 Third Street
South, St. Petersburg Florida,
and is open daily from 9:30 to
5:30, Thursdays from 9:30 to
8:00, and Sundays from 12:00 to
5:30. The Museum is sponsored
in part by the Pinellas County
Arts Council, the City of St.

November proclaimed as Manatee Awareness Month

Manatees are often called one
of the most treasured marine
mammals on earth and are con-
sidered by many to be a vital part
of America's natural heritage. For
the last several years, Florida Gov-
ernor Jeb Bush has signed a
proclamation naming November
as "Manatee Awareness Month,"
the time of year when manatees
usually start returning to Florida's
warm water winter refuges.
"The manatee is Florida's offi-
cial marine mammal, a distinctive
and valuable natural resource,"
reads the proclamation recently
signed by the governor. Many
Floridians enjoy living in a state
where manatees live, and there
are plenty of tourists around the
world who look forward to visit-
ing The Sunshine State to see
these unique creatures.
"Manatee Awareness Month is
a great tradition Florida's gover-
nors have supported year after
year," says Patrick Rose, Save the
Manatee Club's Director of Gov-
ernment Relations. "Each year as
Florida's human population
grows, it is an important reminder
that we must watch out for these
gentle creatures. This year, it
seems more important than. ever
as the U.S. House of Representa-
tives recently passed a bill that
will, if passed by the Senate, great-
ly weaken regulations mandated
by the Endangered Species Act,
which has protected America's
imperiled species for decades."
Club representatives also point

"Manatee Awareness Month is a great tradition
Florida's governors have supported year after
year. Each year as Florida's human population
grows, it is an important reminder that we must
watch out for these gentle creatures."
Patrick Rose, Director of Government Relations
for the Save the Manatee Club

out that increasing demand for
habitat development in Florida
and other states has fueled such
efforts to weaken underlying pro-
tections for all imperiled species
as well as efforts to downgrade
their listing status under these
weakened laws. For example,
Florida has already downgraded
the federally endangered red-
cockaded woodpecker and is like-
ly to downgrade the endangered
manatee despite evidence that
most of the manatee population
in Florida has likely declined in
recent years as a result of rising
threats to their future survival.
Watercraft collisions are the
number one known cause of
manatee mortality. Since record
keeping began in 1974 through
October 31, 2005, 1,369 manatees
have been killed by boats. Addi-
tionally, manatees become entan-
gled in crab trap and monofila-
ment fishing lines; they ingest
debris; and they drown or get
crushed in flood gates and canal
locks. Places where manatees
feed, rest, breed and birth their
young are shrinking under the
pressures of a rapidly developing

Rose, an avid boater and fish-
erman himself, explains that Save
the Manatee Club is asking the
boating public to make it their
goal to slow down and give man-
atees a much-needed break.

manatees, the Club is giving away
free manatee adoptions to the
first 150 high school science class-
es that apply. Each class will
receive a one-year membership in
Save the Manatee Club that
includes a photo of the manatee

Sweet Potatoes are a

nutritional vegetable

But they're
still not yams!
With the Thanksgiving season
upon us, Sweet Potatoes are dis-
played more prominently in area
grocery stores. And I am happy
to see that most merchants cor-
rectly label them: Sweet Potato
(two words, capital S, capital P).
Alas, some people continue to
call them "yams."
Sweet Potatoes and yams are
two completely different plants.
Yams are front the plant family
Dioscoreaceae. Sweet Potatoes
are from the plant family Con-
volvulaceae and are related to
Morning Glory plants.
Sweet Potatoes are prehistoric
plants. Yams, somewhat younger
but still quite old, are traced to
50,000 B.C.
With the Sweet Potato plant,
the edible part is the storage root.
The edible part of the yam is the
tuber: Sweet Potatoes have a
smooth, thin skin. Yams have a
rough, scaly skin. Sweet Potatoes
are moist with a sweet flavor.
Yams are drier and more starchy
than sweet.
Nutritionally, starchy yams just
can't compare to Sweet Potatoes.
Sweet Potatoes are one of nature's
"super vegetables," high in Vita-
min A and Vitamin C. Sweet Pota-
toes also contain calcium, iron
and thiamine and rich in fiber.
Sweet Potatoes, which are
native to North America, are
grown n many parts of the Unit-
ed States, including California
and the Carolinas. Yams originat-
ed in Africa are imported from
the Caribbean.
So how did these very differ-
ent plants become confused in
American grocery stores? There
are many varieties of Sweet Pota-
toes. There are many varieties of
Sweet Potatoes and they come
in different colors. The first Sweet
Potatoes commercially marketed

Healthier "
i aria le

with Katrina Elsken

in this country did not have the
bright orange flesh we are now
accustomed to. To distinguish the
orange Sweet Potatoes from their
paler cousins, a marketing execu-
tive came up with the idea to call
them "American Yams," and the
name stuck. The United States
Department of Agriculture speci-
fies that labels on any produce
marketed as "American Yams"
must also contain the words
"Sweet Potatoes," on the label.
Whatever you call them,
Sweet Potatoes are a wonderful,
naturally sweet source of nutri-
tion. A four-ounce serving con-
tains only about 150 calories, but
is packed with twice the recom-
mended daily allowance of Vita-
min A. Some nutritionists have
suggested that a meal that con-
tains Sweet Potatoes and Broc-
coli is not only colorful but also
well balanced nutritionally.
Sweet Potatoes can be eaten
baked, boiled or steamed. Some
people enjoy them plain, or with
a little cinnamon. Others want the
traditional Sweet Potato casse-
role, garnished with pecans and
marshmallows. Sweet Potatoes
can be substituted for pumpkin -
Sweet Potato pie tastes very
much like pumpkin pie.
Before making any change in
your diet or exercise program,
consult your doctor. This is espe-
cially important if you are on any
prescription medications. Some
drugs interact badly with foods
that would otherwise be consid-
ered "healthy."

Due to Farm-City Week

Values are emphasized

TALLAHASSEE The destruc-
tion caused by Hurricane Wilma
has brought into sharp focus the
interdependence of farmers, con-
sumers and all those whose efforts
make Florida's agricultural system
work. In light of this, Florida Agri-
culture Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson says this ydi'" 6bser-
vance of Farm-City Week, Nov. 18-
24, will be especially meaningful.
"Every year, Farm-City Week
reminds us all rural and urban
residents alike -that we live and
work together in the same environ-
ment and depend on eachother,"
Mr. Bronson said. "In good times,
that interdependence goes almost
unnoticed by many. But, following
a disaster when normal daily life is
drastically disrupted, we're each
reminded just how much we truly
value the contributions of others."
Fall is normally a time of opti-
mism for Florida farmers as they
prepare to harvest their winter
crops to feed the nation. Florida
provides 80 percent of the fresh
vegetables grown in the United
States during January, February
and March of each year.
"Hurricane Wilma destroyed
many of Florida's premier winter
crops in the fields and damaged
much of South Florida's agricultur-
al infrastructure," Bronson said.
"As a result, many Florida farmers
will miss out on this crucial winter
market and some may not sur-
vive this economic blow. In addi-
tion, consumers may find some
Florida fruits and vegetables in lim-
ited supply."
Mr. Bronson said Florida's farm-
ers are once again demonstrating
tlieir resiliency in the wake of disas-
ter as they proceed with rebuilding
and replanting.
"Our state's farmers are work-
ing hard to get back on their feet
after this devastating blow," Bron-
son said. "Soon, grocery shelves
will once again feature the many
Florida products that consumers
Depend on."

Farm-City Week started by
the National Farm-City Council and
promoted nationally by the Ameri-
can Farm Bureau is observed
the seven days leading up to and
including Thanksgiving. Under the
theme "Partners in Progress,"
Farm-City Week salutes all those
who work as part of the complex
network that brings food from the
field to the table. These "Partners in
Progress" include farmers and
ranchers, researchers, processors,
brokers, truckers and shippers,
advertisers, wholesalers and retail-
ers. This network results in numer-
ous benefits to society by providing
an abundance and variety of food
as well as products used to make
clothing, housing, medicines, and
countless other items used daily.
"The key is the interdepend-
ence among those who produce
the products, those who consume
the products, and all those in the
production and marketing chain
between the producer and con-
sumer," said Carl Loop, president
of the Florida Farm Bureau Federa-
tion. "These vital farm-city partner-
ships with rural and urban com-
munities working together have
made the most of our rich agricul-
tural resources, and they continue
to contribute to our health and well

Volunteers help recover fossils

Museum of Natural History pale-
ontologists and volunteers have
recovered more than 1,500 fos-
sils from an ancient clay-filled
sinkhole located in western
Alachua County since work at
the site began Oct. 11, but more
volunteers are still needed for
project, scheduled to contin-
ue through Dec. 17.
The large-scale excavation of
the site approximately two miles
northeast of Newberry has
uncovered 2-million-year-old
fossilized bones and teeth of
freshwater and land animals.
Florida Museum paleontologists
Jonathan Bloch and Richard
Hulbert, who are leading the
excavation, believe the initial
weeks of the dig have been
"extremely successful."
"The scientific value of many

of the skeletons we are uncover-
ing is remarkably significant,"
Bloch said. "The recovered
skeletons of sloths and tapirs will
allow detailed study of how
these extinct mammals were
related to mammals discovered
at other fossil sites and to their
living relatives."
Approximately 10 to 15 vol-
unteers are still needed each day,
Tuesday through Friday, now
through Dec. 17 from 9 a.m. to
4:30 p.m. Weekend shifts also
are available. Volunteers must
be at least 18 years of age, main-
tain a moderate level of physical
fitness and be able to work out-
doors for a minimum of three
hours. Volunteers may work for
a single day, a block of days or a
regular weekly schedule and can
choose to work morning, after-
noon or full-day shifts. Experi-
ence is not necessary. All volun-

teers will receive training and
will work with Florida Museum
staff and University of Florida
graduate students. Volunteers
are responsible for arranging
their own transportation to the
fossil site.
The fossils discovered at the
site range in size from 18-foot-
tall, multi-ton giant ground
sloths to small frogs, snakes and
rodents. The excavation has
revealed well-preserved skele-
tons of giant ground sloths, a
smaller species of sloth that
stood approximately 6 feet tall,
and tapirs, hoofed, plant-eating
mammals distantly related to
horses and rhinoceroses.
The numerous skeletons will
allow paleontologists to learn
how extinct species walked and
interacted with their environ-
ment. The site also revealed
skeletons of mammals of vary-

ing ages, ranging from infants to
adults, allowing Florida Museum
scientists to study how each
species changed in size and
shape as it developed.
In addition, the initial weeks
of the dig produced the first fos-
sils uncovered of a variety of
species, but only a small per-
centage of the sinkhole has been
excavated, and Bloch and Hul-
bert expect many more new
species to be recovered.
"We are very excited about
the new species we have uncov-
ered with the help of our volun-
teers," Hulbert said. "The
remaining six weeks of the dig
are sure to produce more amaz-
ing specimens."

African Americans at a larger risk of diabetes

TAMPA Diabetes exacts a
steep toll on African Americans
- in suffering, deaths and med-
ical costs. That's why health
advocates are targeting African
Americans in particular this Dia-
betes Awareness Month for this
life-saving message: Get
screened and adopt healthy
lifestyle changes now.
African Americans are more
likely than any other ethnic
group to develop type 2 diabetes
and they are far more likely to
die from it. In a 2001 compara-
tive analysis, the death rate for
African Americans in Florida
with diabetes was more than
double the death rate for the
Hispanic/Latino population and
almost triple the Caucasian
death rate for people with dia-
Compared to white Ameri-
cans, African Americans experi-
ence higher rates of three dia-
betes complications -
blindness, kidney failure, and
amputations. They also experi-
ence greater disability from
these complications due in part
to delays in diagnosis and treat-
ment, denial of diabetes, and
high blood pressure.
And that's expensive. Annual
healthcare costs for people
without diabetes amounted to
$2,560 per person in 2002, com-
pared to $13,243 for people with
"The number of deaths each
year is highly preventable," says
Dr. Sumesh Chandra, Leader-
ship Council Member of the
American Diabetes Association
of Southwest Florida and lead-
ing adult endocrinologist. "Half
of the battle is getting, diag-
nosed. With local screenings
people with diabetes can then
get the treatment they need and
go on to lead active, productive
Approximately 2.7 million or
11.4% of all African Americans
aged 20 years or older have dia-
betes. Of these, one-third of
them are not aware they have
the disease.
Besides early detection,

experts say people can reduce
their risk of type 2 diabetes sig-
nificantly by losing weight if they
are obese, increasing their level
of exercise, and adopting a
healthier diet.
A recent study completed by
the Diabetes Prevention Pro-
gram showed that 30 minutes of
moderate physical activity a day
and a 5 to 10% reduction in body
weight produced a 58% reduc-
tion in the development of the
"In many cases, type 2 dia-
betes is preventable," says Dr.
Chandra. "If a proper diet and
moderate exercise regimen are
followed, those with pre-dia-
betes can drastically cut their
risk and avoid the debilitating
When Sam Raghoonanan of
Orlando was diagnosed with
diabetes 16 years ago it came as
a complete surprise.
"I thought that I had a very
bad cold, when I finally ended
up in the emergency room with
extremely high blood sugar,"
says Sam. "I was living a very
carefree life, not worried about
my diet or getting diabetes, even
though many of my family
members had it. When I was
diagnosed, I was devastated. It
has changed my whole life, and
I now have to live a much
healthier lifestyle."
Among the lifestyle changes
that can decrease the risk of
developing diabetes are these:
Eat breakfast every day.
Keep meat, poultry and fish
servings to about 3 ounces
(about the size of a deck of
Use less oil and butter. Stir
fry, broil or bake with non-stick
spray or low sodium broth.
Cook with a variety of
spices instead of salt.
Keep a water bottle handy
and drink water from it through-
out the day.
Make a few less phone
calls. Catch up with friends dur-
ing a regularly scheduled walk.
Park as far away as possible
at your favorite store or mall.

The Webber Warriors defeat-
ed Jacksonville University by a
score of 42-36 Saturday night in
their final contest of the season.
In just their fourth home game of
the season the Warriors were
able to down the. Dolphins by
rushing for over 239 yards and
scoring 6 touchdowns. The War-
riors scored on offense, defense
and special teams Saturday night
en route to their first win over
Jacksonville in three years. This
puts Webber to 7-2 on the sea-
son and gives them wins over
both of Florida's other small col-
The Warriors opened the
game with a touchdown by tak-
ing the opening drive 89 yards on
13 plays and capping it off with a
short run by fullback Mance
Spikes. Spikes finished the night
with 2 touchdowns and 23 yards
on the ground. The Warrior
defense came up with a big stop
on third down forcing the Dol-
phins to punt the ball away. The
Warriors then took the ensuing
drive 80 yards on 7 plays to go
ahead 14-0 on a Justin Mitchell
run; Mitchell finished the day
with 67 yards on 16 carries. The
Dolphins battled back to pull
within 7 after a short punt by
Travis Tubbs gave Jacksonville
the ball deep in Warrior territory.
The Warriors defense came up
big in the second quarter as cor-
nerback JaMarcus Watkins inter-
cepted an errant Chris Horton
pass and returned it 60 yards for
another Webber score. This put
the Warriors on top 21-7 in just
the second quarter
The Dolphins would not go
away however as they rallied
back and scored three consecu-
tive times to end the first half. A
screen pass to running back
Chad Davis went for 30 yards to
pull Jacksonville to within 7
points. Kicker Ryan Feely added
field goals of 37 and 32 yards to
round out the scoring in the first
half. The Warriors went into the
intermission with a one point
lead, 21-20.
The highlight of the second
half came on a fake punt in the
third quarter when Travis Tubbs
made a nice pass to corner/
receiver Vincent Anderson who
adjusted nicely to the pass and
took the defender the rest of the
way for another Webber touch-
down. Receiver Corey Hender-
son also recorded a score in the
third quarter with a 25 yard
reception from quarterback
Dedrick Sykes. Mance Spikes
rounded out the Warrior scoring
with a short run late in the third
quarter. The Jacksonville offense
was only able to muster two
touchdowns in the second half

conversion. Although this
