launching the Ramon Theatre
when Phase IV of the historical
preservation grant is completed.
The grant is sponsored in part by
the State of Florida, Department of
State, Division of Historical
Resources, and assisted by the
Florida Historical Commission.
With the knowledge that several
fund raisers will need to be held to
raise matching funds in the near
future, event organizers deter-
mined it would be a good time to
share a glimpse what a possible
future at the Ramon might hold.
The entertainment began with
June Felt on the piano.
Then a professional dancer
from Florida Dance Theatre, Kassi
Abreu on point, entered looking
like a childhood dream, she danced
a number from the Nutcracker
Sweets Holiday Celebration. Then
a whip popping cow "cracker"
took the stage, followed by Michael
Lawson and Stephen Click who
preformed a musical duet singing
and playing the violin and bass.
Next up was a professional story
teller, former Frostproof native and
librarian, Gladys Roberts. Roberts
told a convoluted Cinderella story
that reverses the first letter or two of
many of the words. She ended with
the "sorel of the morey" which
was, if you want to find your
prince, you have to remember to
"slop your dripper." Lawson and
Click came back with two more
numbers, getting the audience to
sing along. The entertainment part
of the evening ended with Florida
Dance Theater artistic director Fer-
dinand De Jesus, and dancer Kassi
Abreu in a piece from their Latin
A fully blown ballerina on point
in the center of the Depot is quite a
sight to see. Roxanne Owens, who
attended the event commented,
"That was the first time I have ever
seen professional dancers. When I
was in school here and when my
children were growing up the
Ramon was closed. I can only
imagine what different paths our
lives might have taken, what other
careers we might have chosen, if
we had grown up with some of the
things I saw tonight as part of our

Tips tohelp avoid holiday season overspending
\\EST PALM BEACH--If you are
like most consumers, you will
spend close to $800 this year on
family, friends, coworkers and
other important people inyour life.
Researchers cite decreasing gas
prices, an .optimistic employment
outlook, and healthy gains in the
stock market as indicators that we
are ready to spend' almost seven
percent more than we did last \ eat
In fact, the National Retail Federa-
tion 2006 Holiday Consumer Inten-
tions and Actions Survey, conduct-
ed by BIG research for NRF, found.
that the average consumer plans to
spend $791.10 this holiday season,
up 7.2 percent from the previous
"Getting caught up in the spirit of
the holidays can quickly lead to
overspending it you aren't careful,"
said Jessica Cecere, president of
Consinum-er Credit Counseling Sel:
%ice of Palm Beacrh County and the
Treasure Coastl ICCCS ). "For mrrian\
consumers, the il\' of the season is
replaced t\ the striu.,gle to make
even mninirnum parinents on credit
cards used to purchase gifts."
A little advanced planning can
help shoppers pick out the perfect
gift for the special people on their
list and. still stay within budget.
CCCS offers tips to help con-
Develop a spending budget.
Decide how much you can com-
fortably spend on gifts, decora-
tions, and .entertainment without
- relying on credit cards to finance
purchases. Studies show that peo-
ple who use credit cards to buy
gifts spend an average of 30 per-
cent more than people who use
cash. Whei you add in all the
finance charges over months, or
even years, your gift could cost you
twice what you paid for it, or more.
Be sure to factor in all the extra
costs of gift wrap, cards and other
holiday accessories when develop-
ing your budget. And if you will be
traveling' this holiday season, don't
forget to include the cost of travel,
gasoline, airfare, hotel stays, meals
Make your list;
check' it twice
Make a list of all the people you
.want to buy gifts for, including
small gifts for babysitters, teachers,
your mailman, etc. After complet-
ing your list, add the amount you
would d like to spend on each per-
son, making sure that your total
does not exceed the spending limit
you 'established. If it does, review
,and revise the list until. you are
within your budget spending. If
you track your purchases as you
make them, you might find you
save money on some gifts and
have more to allocate to others on
Remember the best
gifts are free
Jot diJ'-.n gift ideas for the peo-
ple :onr \joul list, keeping in mind
that somnie :of the most appreciated
gitts are rot those that cost the
most money, but are the most
meaningful. Handmade gifts, such
as calendars, photo albums, and
framed children's artwork can pro-
vide a lifetime of smiles. Home-
made baked goods are always, a
hit. For the note writer in the family,
Stationery and stamps make a
-great gift. A gardener will always
appreciate a basket of gardening'
tools and seeds. And never under-
estimate the power of a sentimen-
tal letter, song, or poem for that
special person on your list. These
heartfelt gifts are often the perfect
dMaybe the people on your gift
list would prefer a service to a tan-
gible item. Who wouldn't like a
commitment'for getting the car
washed,'a free night of babysitting,
the garage or gutters cleaned, the
lawn mowed, the dog walked or
even the dinner cooked?.Write
your gift of service out on a nice
card or print it up on your comput-
er. Sign, seal, wrap and deliver.
Shop early and take
advantage of sales
Start shopping early and take
advantage of sales on seasonal
items and stock up for the holidays,,
birthdays, and more. Check out
retail sales, special discounts and
coupons in circulars or newspa-
pers and deals online. If you know
the model number of a specific,
piece of electronic equipment, you
can watch the weekend sale ads
for deals or use online comparison
shopping sites to see where you
might find the best deal Sites such
www.mysimon.com compare the
prices of multiple retailers on the
same item. You can then order
items online or, purchase them
locally. As online retailers may run
free -shipping, promotions, you
might just save time and money
ordering online. And don't forget
about non-traditional retailers-thrift
stores, discount stores, consign-
ment shops; and specialty stores
might have just what you're look-
ing for. ,
S Leave your credit cards at
home, and if you do use them, use
them wisely. 1
It is very tempting 'to spend
more than \,yu'V\e planned, espe-
ciallJ if you'ree Iusrhed for time and
feeling the stress of holiday shop-
ping. Leaving your credit cards at
home will help ensure that you will
stick to your budget, even if it
means spending-a little more time
looking for the right gift.
There are occasions when pay-
ing by credit is necessary, such as
online purchases, or airline tickets.
There are special protections for
credit card purchases, such as
.chargeback rights, and the ability
to dispute items not delivered as
promised, so think strategically
,when.to use your cards. Use cards
with the lowest interest rate and,
ideally, only spend.what you can
afford to pay off when the bills
Enjoy the true
gifts of the season
While giving and receiving gifts
can be nice, the true gift of the holi-
day season is the time that families
and friends spend together. Get
Friends and family together to vol-
unteer.at a food bank, an organiza-
tion that provides toys for under-
privilegedchildren or other organi-
zations that are especially busy dur-
ing the holiday season. You- can
enjoyeach other, spre-ed sore hol-
iday chVl' f and saie money. whilee

cherished I:nrig altrr the holidays
are a distant memory. Mlone\ does

Turkey sausage developed to feed Haitian children
GAINESVILLE -- For millions of
Americans, eating turkey is an
essential part of the holidays, but
for some Haitian children it repre-
sents a chance for a better life,
thanks to University of Florida fac-
ulty members working to improve
nutrition in the impoverished
Sally Williams, an associate
professor with UF's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences,
has developed a low-cost turkey
sausage that's being used in a char-
ity program that feeds infants and
toddlers from the poorest families
in villages surrounding Jeremie, a
city of almost 100,000 in southwest
"Children in Jeremie get very lit-
tle protein in their diets, and what
they get comes mainly from rice
and beans and polenta," Ms.
Williams said. "They don't get a
Animal protein helps children
avoid a malnutrition-linked illness
called kwashiorkor and other
health problems common in Haiti,
she said. Children under 5 years of
age comprise about 15 percent of
Jeremie's population; malnutrition
affects 30 percent of them.
Every three months, Sally
Williams oversees production of
about 200 to 300 pounds of the
sausage at UF's animal sciences
department; the sausage is canned
in Jacksonville at the Department
of'Agriculture Canning Center, a
facility operated by the city bf Jack-
sonville and UF's Duval County
Extension Service. UF personnel
began sending the shipments in
July 2005; funding comes from a
three-year U.S. Department of Agri-
When the sausage arrives, it's
sliced into two-ounce portions and
used to feed children ages six
months to three years, as part of a
feeding program operated by the
Haitian Health Foundation, a vol-
unteer organization based in Nor-
Comprised of 83 percent
mechanically separated turkey and
17 percent soy protein and season-
ings, the sausage offers a nutrition-
al profile that includes 15 percent
protein and 18.5 percent fat, Ms.
Williams said. The ingredients are
stuffed into casings about 3 inches
in diameter and cooked. The fin-
ished product is cut into 1.5 pound
portions then packed in water and
canned. Sliced, the sausage resem-
bles bologna and has a mild turkey
"The kids like, it that was our
first concern," Ms. Williams said.
"But there were no problems get-
ting them to eat it."
