Viewpoints & Opinions


Australia needs a baby tax?


Interestingly, all goofy ideas don't originate in places like California and
Massachusetts, Word has just reached us here in the northern hemisphere
that an Australian "medical expert" has arrived at the conclusion that his
nation-and by inference, I suppose, the rest of the civilized world-needs
a tax on babies.
The proposed tax would amount to something like 5,000I initially, with an
additional $800 to be levied annually as a "carbon tax." It is the
brain(?)child of one Barry Walters, an associate professor of obstetric
medicine at the University of Western Australia and the King Edward
Memorial Hospital, located in Perth, The professor also champions condom
distribution and "greenhouse friendly" stuff like sterilization.
And what rewards do such measures return? (Drum roll, please): CARBON
CREDITS!!! -
We have all heard of carbon credits, now, haven't we? The only trouble is,
nobody seems to know what they're worth, Or where you get them. Can
they be bought and sold? Al Gore talks like he has a lot of them, based on
his environmental crusade, He also flies about the country and the world
accepting awards (and giving boring lectures at 100 grand a pop) in private
jets (which do not operate on ethanol) and in gas-guzzling SUV's while on
terra firma, not to mention his resource-devouring mansion in Nashville
and other incidental properties, :
And if hot air is also an environmental pollutant, BigAl must have to buy
a lot of carbon credits just to break even-or is he the guy who sells them?
We just don't know. He won't tell us common people what the score is with
these carbon credits, He just tells us to ride bicycles, use indoor compost
heaps instead of traditional toilets, and hug trees, I guess he figures we
don't have the kind of money it takes to buy carbon credits, and he might
be right, judging by his cavalier consumption of everything from jet fuel to
Big Macs, (Sorry, that last item applies to his former boss.)
Getting back down under to Australia, Professor Walters wants to elimi.
nate his country's $4,133 "baby bonus," This means that Australia would go
from paying people to have babies to taxing them severely for doing so, Ac-
tually, though, this would just amount to a somewhat more civilized incen-
tive for population control, a concept currently in vogue in China-al-
though I don't believe the Chinese government has ever paid people for
having kids obviously they haven't needed to) and their "incentive" for
having too many isn't quite as benevolent as what the professor has in
mind for Australia.
In any event, the prof's plan would amount to an initial $9,133 net gain to
the government for every new baby. Logically, this should motivate the gov-
ernment to encourage people to have more kids, Since the financial incen-
tive would be done away with, and replaced with a tax burden, there would
have to be some other means to motivate reproduction,
How about a lottery? Buy a ticket for a buck, or however many you want,
and the winner gets to have a tax-free baby.
It might work,
It certainly would if they made it good for a lifetime, Remember that $800
a year surcharge for all the trees they have to cut down to keep someone in
bathroom stationery? (Who do you know who uses that much..., well, let's
not go there just now.)
Will this liberal lunacy reach our shores? Or has it arrived already, and
for the moment is just festering in the minds of some Hollywood activists
or left-wing politicians? Chances are, no one will want to step up on this is-
sue until after the election,

Debbie, It's your Birthday again.
Sure wish you were here.
It's so lonely without you,
and your smile and laughter.
Our family will never be the same.
God, I know you have spared us a place,
that again we may see her smiling face.
Though we don't understand,
and our hearts are still sore,
she was ours Lord, but now she's yours.
We remember her as we always will,
so on this day, like all the rest,
we know God only takes the very best.


LOVE ALWAYS,

SEARCH CONTINUES FOR
MAN WHO
FELL OVERBOARD
Searchers are continuing efforts today to recover the body of
Cesar Martin Montano, 27, who fell off his sailboat and dis-
appeared into the St. Johns River just south of the Shands
Bridge near Jacksonville on Friday.
Officials from several agencies searched throughout the
weekend with no result, said Lt. George Pottorf of the Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). He
added that the FWC is coordinating the search efforts.
"It's very sad. If only he had been wearing a life jacket, we
would not be out here now searching for his body" Pottorf
said.
Montano fell overboard while attempting to refuel his 27-foot
sailboat with a gas can while the boat was under way. Mon-
tano and his wife, Jennifer, were on a 12-day trip that began
in Miami. They were headed for Welaka from Jacksonville
when the incident happened.
Officers from the FWC, Clay County Sheriff's Office, St.
Johns County Sheriff's Office and the U.S. Coast Guard are
participating in the search on water and from aircraft.
The FWC is the lead investigating agency


TEAM AMOEBA
Amelia Elder is the adorable three year old daughter of
Nathan and Gina Elder. Gina is the Director of kid works
Preschool on Mill hopper Road. Nathan is employed by Flori-
da Food Service. They also have a five year old son, Luke.
(Amelia's nickname, Amoeba, came courtesy of her older
brother Luke's early attempts to pronounce his sisters name)
Since birth, AmQeba has struggled with her physical develop-
ment, and has always been very small for her age. For the
;past three years, Nathan and Gina have been working with
Amoeba's pediatrician, and a growing list of specialists, try-
ing to determine why she continues to lose ground on the
growth charts. Presently she's been diagnosed with a
m=number of genetic abnormalities, and recently, was admit-
ted to Shands AGH for a week to have a feeding tube inserted
and to allow for a battery of in-patient tests and procedures.
To date,she has been diagnosed with the following:
Frontal Bossing, Hypertelorism, Failure to thrive, Feeding
Aversion, Gastroesophageal Reflux, Micrognathia, Possible
Dwarfism, Steep Cilvus, Idiopathic Short Stature, Vasculrized
Conjuctival Phlyenular Leison, Mike Tyson Syndrome*
* This one is not an actual clinical diagnosis. However How-
ever she does occasionally.try to punch her doctors and nurs-
es Her condition taken as a whole point to a genetic abnor-
mality of some sort. Presently the diagnosis is leaning to-
wards some variant of Russell- Sliver Syndrome although the
Elders may never have a clear, definitive diagnosis. While
several of her symptoms and physical abnormalities are
markers for mental retardation, we're happy to report that
Amoeba most definitely does not have any mental develop-
mental delays at all. At a recent exam, a doctor mane the mis-
take to telling Gina, in front of Amoeba, that she may be re-
tarded; to which Amoeba replied "I don't like you. I am
Amelia and I am not a 'Tarted'. However her inability to in-
take calories and maintain her weight and growth is severely
impaired. At age three, little Amoeba weighs ao s much as an
average one year Old. For the immediate future, and poi-ibly
throughout her childhood and into adulthood, Amoeba will
require supplements feeding every night via her feeding tube
and a pump. Amoeba presently requires six 8 oz cans of Pe-
dia Sure Eternal Formula with Fiber each night! The cost of
Amoeba's feeding formula is approximately $347 per month
an expense not covered by insurance. In addition to her sup-
plemental feeding, Amoeba may require daily injections of
Human Growth Hormone, and the outlook for her overall de-
velopment is frustratingly unclear. The financial strain on
the Elder family thus far for just their co-payments and de-
ductibles has been considerable. Please visit www.teamamoe-
ba.com for more information.

HABITAT FOR HUMANITY NEWS

First, we'd like to wish everyone a wonderful Christmas
filled with the love of Jesus!
Connie Brosam, our first Habitat homeowner, picked a win-
ner for the adorable playhouse on Sat. 12/8 at the Festival of
Lights at Fanning Springs. Congradulations to Joan
Vaughn of Trenton and thanks to all that supported us by
buying tickets. Thanks Rick Sawyer, the builder. This was
a fundraiser for our first home.
Construction has begun at our first homesite on Hwy #351,
just off Hwy #349 in Old Town. Thanks to Joe Anderson,
the late Woody Lovelace, Craig VanDerMark, D.J. Daube,
Capps Concrete, the Board of County Commissioners, many
local Churches and businesses, plus the efforts of many oth-
ers for getting us thus far. We would like to thank all the
volunteers that have been involved. Of course, thanks be to
God
for the ministry of Habitat!!
We've had four safety courses to prepare volunteers for con-
struction, thanks Doug Burgner!.
Habitat not only provides homes but in the process forms a
community of support- people helping people. Isn't that the
way Jesus would do it? Please join us for our Board meet-
ing Mon. 12/17 @ 7:30 PM at the Good Sheperd Lutheran
Church on US# 19/98, as we celebrate the holiday & what
Jesus has done! We'd love to have you & we still have unmet
needs: people to organize, cook for the construction work-
ers, help with fundraising or on committees, making phone
calls, etc. If you can't attend but have a heart to help call
463-7207. God Bless!

PET OF THE WEEK

Nickie is a year-old, Male Jack Russell Terrier. He
has an affectionate personality and loves to play as he is
still young. Nickie gets along well with kids and dogs.
He is your typical Jack Russell and many people really
love this breed. If you are looking for a couch potato,
Nickie is not that dog. If you like a dog with energy
and one that will keep up with you, then
look no further.

As you prepare to decorate for the holidays., be
aware of a few holiday greens that may be dangerous to
your pet.
Holly and mistletoe: Ingesting these festive holiday
plants can lead to serious diarrhea and tummy upset.
It is possible that mistletoe may also cause cardiovas-
cular problems. Poinsettias and lilies: Both are known
to upset belly and bowels, but poinsettias are particu-
larly irritating to the mouth and can be poisonous.
Holiday trees: Keep thirsty pups away from tree wa-
ter. It is often
mixed with fertilizers, which tend to upset the stom-
ach. And if the water has been sitting for a while. it
may harbor potentially harmful bacteria.
Pine needles: If swallowed, can pierce the stomach
or intestines.
We will be returning to CITGO gas station in Old Town
this coming Saturday for our pet adoptions from 12:30 to
4:00 p.m.

LCCC RECEIVES $750,000 IN
SUCCEED FLORIDA AWARDS

Lake City Community College (LCCC) will
receive $766,929 in SUCCEED Florida grants.
The funds will be used to continue and ex-
pandicurrent programs in the Academy of
Allied Health programs and the Educator
Preparation Institute (EPI), a specific pro-
gram within the Academy of Teacher Prepa-
ration. As well, the allied health academy
was awarded a grant for one new program.
The SUCCEED Florida program was estab-
lished to help educational programs meet the
state of Florida's workforce needs.
LCCC allied health programs were awarded
the following monies: Patient Care Techni-
cian (PCT, new), $150,000; Practical Nursing
(PN) Expansion, $192,250 agyd the associate
degree in nursing (continuation), $150,000.
The allied health funding will provide for
various program enhancements such as
equipment, expansion of programs, support
personnel, etc. which will afford more stu-
dent access to its nursing programs. The PN
expansion will allow the admission of more
qualified applicants each year, increasing the
capacity of the program while addressing
critical workforce shortages in local medical
and long-term care facilities and prepares
students for further career ladder advance-
ment.
The new PCT program addresses the great
need for highly qualified, entry level techni-
cians to administer critical care \ within local
medical facilities and to maximize the effec-
tiveness of the chronically understaffed
nursing workforce. In addition to standard
patient care assistance coursework, students
will receive academic specialization in both


OR kl I ~
z-P ('r '


phlebotomy and electrocardiography, both ot
which are locally in high demand. Student
support services such as tutoring and acade-
mic advising will increase as well.
The, Educator Preparation Institute was
awarded an expansion grant of $274,697. This
award will be used to establish two new EPI
Satellite program delivery locations deliver-
ing curriculum through interactive video
and "hybrid" instructional formats. It will
also provide high quality on-site student sup.
port and mentoring for students. This pro-
gram will increase access for students from
outlying counties, many of which would
have to travel an hour or more to reach the
main LCCC campus. The EPI provides alter-
native certified education for people with
bachelor's degrees or higher who want to re-
train to be high school teachers.
Discussions with the SUCCEED grant man-
agement office have indicated that LCCC's
award is "huge" considering the current eco-
nomic times. The grant officials stated that
the college submitted well written grants
and did a "first-class job" preparing them.
The awarding of the grants was an objective,
complex process with hundreds of people
across the state reading and evaluating
them. Of the 40+ colleges and universities

CHIVALRY ISN'T DEAD IN DIXIE


7IV -n High school students, JRROTC
S members, a mechanical engineer
'-with his cell phone attached to
one ear and an eye on a toddler
' .happily wobbling around, a
teacher, a newspaper editor, kids
F 1'... 4 ':of all ages, ladies trying on flow-
.' : ing skirts, a young couple expect-
ing their first baby...it's hard not
:to notice that the makeup of this
S,.,- ,. ., club is a little different. What
brings together such a disparate
group of Dixie County residents
i on this Thursday afternoon?
Medieval history. Medieval ro-
mance. Medieval ideals. The So-
ciety for Creative Anachronism is,
S. a worldwide educational organi-
":'.. nation now, with tens of thou-
sands of members across the
S" -.. globe. It didn't start out that
way: it started out at a backyard
graduation party in 1966 for the (now famous) author and medieval studies major, Diana Paxon. Later, the group was
given its official name by yet another famous author and member, Marion Zimmer Bradley The SCA describes itself
as a Medieval Club, recreating the "Middle Ages as they should have been." Many'science fiction and fantasy writers
have been members, Poul Anderson, Robert Aspirin, Gordon Dickson, Mercedes Lackey, and Katherine Kurtz: so have
NASA scientists, doctors, lawyers,,ministers...even a starting offensive lineman for the Buffalo Bills (Glen Parker
#74)...dreamers and romantics of all walks of life. NASA even sent up the symbol for Florida's group in one space
shuttle.
The students in Cross City today are learning classic forms of combat. Most are practicing fencing; a few are work-
ing with quarterstaffs. Some are trying on "garb" (medieval style clothing) and talking about what they're going to
wear during Hoggetowne Medieval Festival. Local members will be volunteering for the popular Gainesville event
this January
It's not all swords and guy-stuff, though. The SCA is a serious research organization. Arts and Sciences competi-
tions are held twice a year to showcase local members' talents and historical knowledge. Medieval calligraphy and
illumination? Medieval church Latin? Historical needlework, weaving, spinning, dyeing, cooking? Music and drama
performances? It's all here.


-IN


The SCA welcomes families and children. Kids can learn responsibility
by becoming a Page to an older member: running errands, watching
smaller children, or helping in the kitchen. At any SCA function, you
hear words you don't hear much from teenagers anymore. Words like
honor, courtesy, and duty. It's easy to become accustomed to hearing
"Good even', milady and milord," and to having your hand kissed when,
being introduced. At large events for the Kingdom (Florida is called
the Kingdom of Trimaris), classes are available in all of the arts and
sciences,.battles are fought, and feasting and dancing lasts well into the
night.


If you're interested in learning more
about medieval history or swordplay, you
can contact Matt Cravey at home or
Kathy McKinney, 498-3312 or 542-0103.


FWC SETS NEW REQUIREMENTS
FOR WILDLIFE OWNERS


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission u a
(FWC) approved a new rule concerning exhibition of
Class I wildlife and venomous reptiles Thursday.
Owners of Class I (potentially very dangerous) wildlife
must maintain a list of -names, addresses and phone num-
bers of contiguous landowners and neighbors and notify the]
FWC immediately if an animal escapes from its i
enclosure, cage, leash or other constraint. Also, they are required 1
to have a captive wildlife critical incident/disaster plan that de-
scribes what they will do in the event of a hurricane, flood or fire
to prevent animals from escaping. They must maintain the neighbor-
notification information in the plan.
'These new requirements are aimed at better protecting the public should an inci-
dent occur involving Class I captive wildlife which can cause
harm," said Capt. Linda
Harrison of the FWC's In-
RSAS vestigations Section.
"However, we are mindful
Electronics not to take away the rights
,' .k. of responsible
wildlife owners.

CITY COUNCIL CANCELS
CHRISTMAS
EVE MEETING
At the regular meeting on Monday the 10th, the Cross City
City Council decided to cancel their scheduled meeting on
December 24.,
According to Clerk Angie Bush, the new software is causing a
few problems, but she is confident that the bugs will be
ironed out soon.
Mike Cassidy, City Manager stated that they are working on
an evaluation of City sidewalks and hope to complete the
Horseshoe Road portion soon.
A slight delay in pumps for the new water project was report-
ed, but the engineer is completing a revision of the schedule
and the delay should cause no problems.
A new cooking land/ preparation and serving table is
planned for the Cross City Park and two new large play sys-
tems have been ordered for the NW Park.
Buddy Walker requested an amendment to the Land Develop-
ment Regulations to allow property on NE 214 Avenue to be
rezoned from RSF/MH1 to Commercial Neighborhood in or-
der to allow a new barber shop behind City Hall.

STEINHATCHEE BAPTIST CHURCH
NEWS

Let's remember to mark our calendars for the Adult
CHRISTmas Party being held on Tuesday Dec. 18 at 6:30
P.M. It will be catered by Fiddler's Restaurant, so ladies
we do not have to cook! Oh, what a blessing! Please bring
a wrapped "white elephant gift" to exchange.( that is a
gift you do not want or a $5.00 or less gift!) It is great fun
for all! Also please bring your unwrapped gifts for our
Steinhatchee children that are less fortunate! This is a
seed of giving that may grow later as they become
adults! If your time is limited then a donation for these
love gifts will be a blessing! Thank?you now for your
love and participation!

We are praying for Sarah Holden's mom, Wing( in the
hospital with pneumonia), Jerry Payne, Wood-duck
Wood, Grady Morrow, Bradley Files, Joyce
Southerland,Joyce Pace, Joey Whiddon, Bob Puckett's
friend Daphine, the Mark Thornton family, all the
families that have lost their loved ones, the folks last
week (each name was called?) at prayer meeting, and for
the safety of those traveling during the
holidays.

.Where were you last week? If you were hunting or
CHRISTmas shopping or fishing, or baking for the holi-
days or wrapping gifts, or just laying around being
lazy.....we sure did miss ya and so did THE LORD! We
heard our?young?girls trio, Libby Gray, Jessica Downey
and Nancy Emery sing Thank you LORD". They always
bless our hearts!

We had a missionary, William Bray speaking on Sunday.
He also sang and played the qui tar! He is from the Rock
of Ages Prison Ministry serving the inmates in north-
ern Florida since 1996! His home office is in Cleveland,
Tennessee! We pray for him as he has a vision from GOD
to reach those that need GOD's love so much.

A local church sign says, "Wisemen still worship the
LORD". Do you? Are you wise??Come on down to the
Lighthouse on the Gulf, called First Baptist Church
and find a new life in JESUS CHRIST! Do you want all
those past sins washed away? Just believe on HIS pre-
cious SON ...JESUS, for it will change your life. Our
GOD is full of grace and truth and yes 1-E will forgive
you!?JESUS was born to die, so that we could live! All
our choir folks, remember choir practice on Sunday af-
ternoon at 4:45. We need you to make a joyful
noise/sound unto the LORD! Some of us do make
that joyful.noise....but it is for GOD'S glory, so it is just
beautiful! Amen We are wishing each of you and all the
people you love a MERRY-CHRISTMAS!

Always

Former 2007
Youth Conserva-
tion Corps (YCC)
student, Ashley
Long changed
her career goals
after her sum-
mer's work at the
Lower Suwannee
& Cedar Keys Na-
tional Wildlife U
Refuge. The hot
humid weather of
the refuge
seemed to en-
courage her hard
work: the build-
ing of a 1,000 foot
boardwalk, re-


API .


constructing a fishing deck, marking the boundary, and pick-
ing-up after litterers with two other YCC teens. She's decided
she wants to work in the outdoors.

For her Senior Girl Scout project, the Gold Award, she chose
the Refuge Ranger as her mentor and asked to perform her
service project for the refuge. Building up to National
Wildlife Refuge Week, she wrote art icles for her local newspa-
per promoting awareness of the refuge established in 1975,
encouraging stewardship, and finally a post-event article
about the National Wildlife Refuge Week Openhouse. She
also created an exhibit and game for young and old alike fea-
turing the research being done on Seahorse Key

Ashley staffed the refuge booth and her exhibit for the two
day Openhouse at Cedar Keys NWR, with her mentor, Ranger
Pam Darty, and other staff members. She interpreted the
symbiotic relationship between the cottonmouths of Sea-
horse Key and the birds of the island's rookery through the
game she created.

Most young people are not driven to volunteer; there are so
many distractions in their lives. Scouts, the YCC program,
and concerned loving parents help them to find a purpose.
Ashley's feels that awakening her community to the wonders
of the Lower Suwannee NWR is now her purpose.

EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH


Congratulations to Mrs. Lela Wimberly! She has been select-
ed employee of the nionth at Dixie District Schools Trans-
portation Dept. Mrs. Wimberly is not new at bus driving: her
mother, Mrs. Stephenson, was a bus driver before her and it
seems that Mrs. Lela just followed in her shoes...even down to
the bus number. Her mom drove a bus with the number 5 and
now Mrs. Lela drives bus #5.

She is a punctual person, and comes to work every day Actu-
ally, she has had perfect attendance in years past and so far
this year started with perfect attendance. Her bus students
refer to her as Aunt Lela which tells us of the relationship
she maintains with her students on the bus If you need a
friendly smile, a very sincere laugh, or a hug, go see Mrs.
Lela. She is so contagious in her joy and happiness that it
shows. We truly have a jewel as a bus driver with the Dixie
School System.

FHA: OLD MORTGAGE PRO-
GRAM FINDING NEW LIFE

(ARA) The sky is falling, the sky is falling! Or so you
would think if you listened to all the news coverage about
the mortgage market. The news is filled with reports of
declining home values, resetting adjustable-rate mort-
gages and people feeling the pinch of tightened credit.
However, despite the doom and gloom, much of the media
haven't reported on the proverbial silver linings in the-
storm clouds. One of the bright spots is the resurgence in
popularity of a loan program that has been around since
the 1930s -- the Federal Housing Administration (FHA)
loan.
Historically used almost exclusively by consumers to pur-
chase their first home because of its low down payment
requirements and competitive rates, FHA loans are mak-
ing a comeback and quickly gaining prominence among
those looking to refinance as well.


"A large number of people
are really benefiting from
the FHA loan program,
and what is most interest-
ing is many of them have
just recently been turned
down for more traditional
conventional loans," says
Bob Walters, chief econo-
mist for Quicken Loans,
one of the nation's largest
mortgage lenders. "This
program isn't the answer
for everyone, but we have
found that it can be a very
viable option for many
people."
According to Walters, FHA
loans are being used by
consumers for cash-out re-
financings, or to consoli-
date debt up to 95 percent
of the home's value --
moves that are extremely
difficult and often not fi-
nancially practical to
make with current conven-
tional lending guidelines.
"Through the first half of
2007, homeowners had no
problem making their
mortgages work for them.
However, since that time,
tighter lending guidelines
have resulted in many loan
programs being taken off
the table. Fortunately, FHA


U


loans can fill some of the void. When used responsibly,
FHA loans can provide much-needed relief. Every day, we
help clients purchase homes, pay off medical expenses,
eliminate high-interest credit card debt and generally im-
prove their financial position through the FHA program,"
Walters adds.
Consumers are also finding that in some instances, FHA
loans can close very quickly, in less than 14 business days
in some cases.
"The bottom line is that FHA loans are an option for
many folks, but not for everyone. It is very important that
every homeowner consult with a reputable lender who
will listen to their needs and goals, and then suggest the
best mortgage for them. In-some cases it could be an FHA
loan, and in others it may be a conventional fixed or ad-
justable rate mortgage. What is important is that the loan
actually works for the consumer and puts them in the
best possible financial position," Walters concludes.
For more information about FHA loans, visit www.Quick-
enLoans.com/FHA.

HOW TO CUT CALORIES, BUT NOT
YOUR FUN DURING THE HOLIDAYS

(ARA) You may relish holiday office parties, neighborhood
gatherings, family meals and the annual New Year's Eve
bash. But how happy will your holidays really be if all those
extra calories you consume during seasonal festivities go
straight to the portion of your anatomy that could least use
the extra padding
Holiday weight gain will be an unpleasant reality for many
Americans this year. It is possible, however, to trim the calo-
ries and still enjoy holiday merriment. Just keep in mind
these "Four Cs" to help curtail calories at holiday parties,
Weight Watchers advises:
1. Cocktails
Some people forget to keep tabs on liquid calories. Since they
don't usually make you feel full, it's easy to forget that holiday
spirits and cocktails can be high in calories. To limit liquid
calories, keep sugary mixers like Triple Sec, Grand Marnier
and Crème de Menthe to a minimum. Opt instead for
lower-calorie substitutions.
For example, instead of a cosmopolitan, which packs 179 calo-
ries in just 3 ounces, go for a mimosa that offers just 105 calo!
ries in 6 ounces. Spiced tea with an ounce of rum adds up to
just 70 calories and is a good replacement for eggnog, which
pours on 186 calories per half-cup serving.
2. Cookies
Santa Claus isn't the only one who loves holiday cookies.
They are a seasonal "must have" for many Don't deprive your-
self completely; deprivation tends to lead to overindulgence.
Pick one cookie and savor it. To create a little more cookie
control, bring your own renovated recipe, and follow these
tips to lighten up these holiday favorites:
Top it Sprinkle chocolate chips, nuts or dried fruit on top
of cookies instead of mixing them into the batter. This will
reduce the amount used of these high-calorie add-ons.
Toast it Bring out the flavor of nuts or coconuts by toast-
ing them before adding them into the recipe. This will also al-
low you to use less of them
Substitute it Egg and sugar substitutes can help reduce
calories and fat.
Shrink it Cut calories in half by reducing the size of the
cookie, so you can still enjoy the flavors of your favorite holi-
day treat.
3. Candy
Chocolate goes with the holidays like Santa and his red suit.
But you'll consume fewer calories and feel satisfied longer if
you substitute a long-lasting holiday candy like a candy cane,
for. chocolates. Also, look for ways to incorporate sensible
snacks with a touch of indulgence, such as chocolate-dipped
pretzels.
4. Couture
Don't bow to baggy. sweaters and stretchy fabrics that make it
easier to overlook your figure flaws. You might think twice
about grazing at the holiday party buffet if you're wearing
your "skinny" jeans. Also, buy a party dress or a fantastic
outfit that makes you feel great now and hang it on the bath-
room door as a reminder that you want to look and feel your
best this season. For instant inspiration, you can find tips to
dressing."five pounds lighter" on WeightWatchers.com.
For more help managing holiday calories, visit www.weight-
watchers.com, and try this reduced-calorie holiday treat:
