Red Cross honors Veterans, Military families

weekend the Greater Palm Beach
Area Chapter of the American
Red Cross salutes all veterans
who throughout our nation's his-
tory have so valiantly and selfless-
ly served our country. The Red
Cross has a historic and unique
role in supporting .veterans and
their family members as well as
members of the United States
Armed Forces, members of the
National Guard and Reserves.
Every day, the Red Cross Veter-
ans Affairs Volunteer Services Pro-
gram supports our nation's veter-
ans and their families in the 172
VA medical facilities around the
nation providing a variety of ser-
vices including physical rehabili-
tation, nursing and ward services,
administrative help, and commu-
nity outreach. The Red Cross also
assists veterans, veterans' widows

and dependents with processing
claims for VA benefits._
In addition to its support to vet-
erans, Red Cross workers ensure
essential communication links for
all military families during times
of crises. Working in more than
700 chapters across the country,-
58 military installations, two state-
of-the-art communication centers
and at military installations in

The veterans bill has got-
ten caught up in a larger battle
between the White House .and
Congress over Democratic efforts
to add about $23 billion for do-
mestic programs to Bush's $933
billion proposal for all agency
budgets passed by Congress each
year. Bush hasn't yet received any
of the 12 spending bills for the
budget year that began Oct. 1.
Democrats had sought to
combine the veterans spending
measure with ones for education,
health and job training programs
to force passage of increases for
the other programs. But Bush has
insisted that the veterans money
come to him in a stand-alone
bill, and the veterans portion was
stripped from the larger legisla-
tion this week, leaving that fund-
ing in limbo.
The veterans' bill adds $3.7
billion over Bush's request for
the Veterans Affairs Department's
budget. The increase would ease
waiting times to claim VA health
benefits and add money to treat
post-traumatic stress disorder and
traumatic brain injuries.

member the service of members

period saw Madrigal connect on
scoring passes of 69 yards to Hen-

Pollard. Sandwiched in between
for scores were a 57-yard run by
Pryor and a 33-yard interception
return by Henderson.
The Tigers, although out
manned and out gunned, didn't
quit. They kept finding spurts of
offense, mostly behind the run-
ning of senior tailback Colin Rick-
etts who kept getting good chunks
of yardage behind sporadic block-
ing. His long run of the night was
for 56 yards that set up a 9-yard
touchdown run by Darris Hughes
as the clock wound down.
Clewiston and Okeechobee ex-
changed scores in the final period
with the Tigers scoring on a 4-yard
sweep by Ricketts and Pryor scor-
ing on a 14 yard run.
The Brahmans finished 7-3 and
that matched their best record
going back to 1991. The Tigers
ended regular season 4-6 as they
swept their district rivals but could
not manage a win in tougher non-
district play.

united by a commitment to honor,
duty and love of country that has
kept America free. They continue
to strengthen and inspire our na-

what we owe them."
The White House is plan-

which the president will honor
veterans, spokesman Gordon
Johndroe said from Texas, where
Bush is spending the weekend
at his ranch. Johndroe declined
to discuss where or with whom
the event would take place. Vice
President Dick Cheney is paying a
visit to Arlington National Ceme-
tery outside Washington, and was
scheduled to speak briefly.
On Thursday at Brooke Army
Medical Center in San Antonio,
four days ahead of the holiday,
Bush paid an emotional visit to
soldiers maimed or badly burned
in combat and said his adminis-
tration is determined to mend
the nation's system of caring for
veterans. He toured a new $45
million, privately funded rehabili-
tation center for veterans at the
hospital, amid scrutiny of veter-
ans' care and discontent among
returning troops after extended
tours in Iraq.
The president said his admin-

mendations of the commission
he created after reports about
substandard outpatient treatment

Center in Washington. He urged

No Thanksgiving Dinner at Grace Brethren
For the first time in many years, there will be no community wide
Thanksgiving Dinner at Grace Brethren Church. The church itself
never sponsored the dinner. The church just provided the dining
room. A separate organization called Grace Ministries sponsored the
event. Apparently that organization has ceased to exist. Grace Breth-
ren officials state that no one has contacted them to use their facility
and no one seems to know who is in charge of Grace Ministries or if
that organization is still in existence.

Motorcycle rally continues
A motorcycle rally started yesterday and will be continue today, at
the Okeechobee County Agri-Civic Center, 4200 S.R. 70 E., begin-
ning at 9 a.m. each day. The inaugural event is being sponsored by
the Florida Gang Investigators Association (FGIA) and will feature a
burn out pit, tug-o-war and donut eating contest for adults. There
will also be events for children that include a bounce house, wildlife
area and face painting. There will also be live music, as well as food
and prize giveaways. Tickets are $5 in advance each and $10 each at
the gate on the day of the event. Children under the age of 12 will be
admitted free. The purpose of the two-day event is to help educate
youngsters about the dangers of joining a criminal street gang and
to raise money for the FGIA that will be used to educate kids about

space permits.
NO SMOKING: I thought that it was no longer legal to smoke
inside businesses. Last week I was in a local establishment and the
employees were smoking inside. I wasn't in there more than five
minutes and when I left I reeked of cigarettes. Needless to say I won't
be buying anything from there.
COURT: I am calling about the Nov. 7 article about Richard Dun-
can, I know the man I work with him. I am glad that he was acquit-

LOCKS: Why can't the SFWMD leave the Taylor Creek Locks
closed? So the property owners of Treasure Island and Taylor Creek
Isles can navigate their boats. We pay a premium property tax to be
on the water and when they open the Locks to lower the level it be-
comes unusable, not to mention the damage done to the seawalls.
The property appraiser does not want to give any consideration to the
premium taxes we pay for waterfront property, which is no longer
waterfront property. It also affects the local economy of Okeechobee,
for no one wants to come here to look at an empty ditch. Let's make
Okeechobee look inviting.
BE PROACTIVE: I have come to the realization that our local
code enforcement officers seem to exert selective enforcement, by
being reactive to jealous or vindictive individuals that call people in,
that might be improving or repairing their property. Code enforce-
ment needs to be proactive, especially in-Treasure Island, where
dump trucks, school buses, dilapidated unlicensed cars parked in
front yards and dilapidated boats parked in the right of ways. Not to
mention the unsafe and unsightly structures that devalue the neigh-
borhood and the unkempt and uncut yards that always continue to
exist throughout. I was told at one time by an enforcement officer
that she was aware of it but the people just can't afford to do it. Does*
the code excuse people that can't afford it? With so many churches
in Okeechobee and helpful neighbors they bight join together to help
the actual people that are elderly and could use help. Just a sugges-

TAYLOR CREEK: An open request to the City and County Com-
missioners, regarding the opening of Taylor Creek Lock. The opening
of the lock will affect Lake Okeechobee water level by less than .001
inch. Hundreds of us are enjoying the opportunity to have a boat ride
and some fishing around the creek and rim canal. Please let us keep
this privilege. SFWMD needs to consider the impact on us, the citi-
zens of the city and county. When the water level recently came back
so did the fish, otters and gators, that is so much more than we had
when the canals were dry. I ask you, why should hundreds of us have
to move or dry dock boats to add .001 inch to a mostly unusable,
inaccessible lake? I am sure I am speaking for great numbers on this
subject. Please take heed and intervene with SFWM on our behalf.
CREEPY: Any way I look at it, a grown adult man, cruising .a
school bus stop in the morning, trying to flirt with middle school girls
is creepy.

ATTENTION: Regarding those who want to have a Gay Straight
Alliance club at the high school, I personally think that due to so
much hate and haters out there, why in the world would you bring
+ any attention to yourselves'.Just do a group amongst yourselves and
spread the word, than that way you would be under no stress or
worry and have fun together and no one would make a public is-
sue. Understand that this world IS NOT FAIR and I would be careful
and stay safe with your own group assembly. I am not gay - in fact,
I am a 50 yr old woman with children in Okeechobee schools. But,
you are human beings, despite how you were born or the choices
you make,.I would not want to see any harm or fear brought onto
anyone, so please be safe and do your own thing and become strong
in your own ways. Why make it such an issue, it's stupid to do that.
I breed the most hated breed of dogs and do you think for a minute
I would bring anymore attention to myself than need be, no I would
be smarter than that. I love the breed of dog but understand all the
haters and that is their opinion and it will always be their opinion.
Even the bikers are feared in a way, but they assemble together and
do wonderful things for the abused children, breast cancer, disabled
children etc. etc on their runs on their bikes, now they are doing
good for the community and world and people give them more re-
spect and credit, this was a smart and good thing from their hearts.
See where I am going with this issue, think and be smart with all your

Dear Abby

Fear traps woman in marriage

*DEAR ABBY: I am in an
eight-year marriage that feels
like a prison sentence. I have
two children under the age of 5,
and a husband who is mentally
and emotionally unstable and
has severe addiction to prescrip-
tion painkillers. If I divorce him,
he will have joint custody of our
children and, while I want them
to know who their father is be-
cause they love him, I am terri-
fied of what he might do to them
as emotionally unstable as he is.
I'm convinced he is capable of
murder-suicide just to get at me.
He forces me to say "I love
you" several times a day. I don't
mean it anymore. He forces bodi-
ly contact. I sleep in a recliner in
the den and put off going home
from work to avoid him because
I know the fight will be on when
I get there.
I have never cheated on him,
but I'm accused of it all the time.
I have no privacy. He searches
my purse, phone and car for "ev-
idence" almost nightly. He takes
checks from my private account
and writes them without my con-
sent. When I get overdrafts, he
acts like it's my fault. If he spends
money on the kids, he resents it
-- and to complicate matters
further, we filed for bankruptcy
last year and are living in the
house with my parents.
To be truthful, I'm scared to
live with him by myself. I cringe
every time I'm forced to be inti-
mate with him, and I'm dying in-
side in little pieces. Please advise
me. I would like to be sane and
have a reasonably decent life for
me and my kids before it's over.

his instability due to his abuse of
prescription medications.
Then inform the physician

Tell your lawyer that you want

you are: (1) afraid he will harm
you, (2) afraid he could harm the
children, and (3) you would like
him to have supervised visitation

Fortunately, you are living in

husband out of there. Your attor-

way to accomplish that.
*DEAR ABBY: Here's my
question: There are two sisters.
One is a grandmother. Is her sis-
ter a "grand" aunt" or is she a
"great" aunt"?
I say she's a grand-aunt.
However, my wife - the grand-

mother's sister - says she's a
great-aunt. How can that be?
If that's true, then I would be a
"great" grandfather instead of a
true grandfather. Only you can
straighten out this argument.
Thanks! - Charles P. in Bata-
via, Ill.
to Merriam Webster's Collegiate
Dictionary (llth Edition), the
terms "great-aunt" and "grand-
aunt" are synonymous. Either
way, this would not make you
a grandfather. You are either a
great-uncle or grand-uncle - the
choice is yours.

Veterans Day, and I would like to
take this opportunity to thank not
only our veterans, but also those
men and women who are still on
active duty for their service to our
country. - Abby

Stitching Stories

The Art of Quilting

People tell stories in many ways, and
sometimes these stories show up in
unexpected places. Quilting is one way
of telling stories that may surprise you.
Do you have a quilt in your home?
The quilt on your bed may have a
story hidden in its design. Maybe it
tells a story in pictures. Or maybe
there is a story in how it was made.
The Mini Page talked with quilt
experts about this art form that has
been passed down through the years.
The story of quilts
A quilt has three layers: a
decorated top, a back, and filling in
between, like a sandwich. The layers
may be tied or sewn together.
You might think quilts are used
only as blankets. But there are many
other ways to use them.
For thousands of years, people have
been making quilts. People in India
and Pakistan have used quilts to
make tents and bags to hold snakes.
In Europe and America, in
past centuries, quilts have _.- ,
been used as bedcovers and _, -
clothing. They were hung in L -
doorways or windows to keep out the
cold. Quilts decorated the house.
Some people made quilts out of
materials such as silk. Other quilters
made them out of pieces, or patches, of
cloth. They recycled material from
worn-out clothing or used leftover bits
of cloth. Quilts made out of differently
shaped pieces and various materials
are known as "patchwork quilts."

A woman's art
Quilting was once an art special to
women. This was partly because, until
recently, sewing was thought to be a
woman's job.
In the past, women were often
discouraged from working in other
types of art. If a woman wrote a story,
few publishers would print it. Few
women had painting materials.
But women were encouraged to
quilt and sew. Quilts helped keep the
family warm. Many women wanted to
make something beautiful as well as
Both boys and girls were usually
taught how to sew, but the skill was
more important for girls. Girls might
start learning to sew
when they were only 3
,- _years old. They learned
quilting by making doll
Today, men as well as
women quilt. .

This is a special quilt that
was never meant to be used
on a bed. It was created to
be shown as a work of art. It
hangs in the Habitat for
Humanity headquarters in
Americus, Ga. It was made
by many different quilters
and shows volunteers
building homes for people in
need. Today, people might
fund, or sponsor, a special
S quilt just as they would any
other work of art.

A labor of love
Women usually sewed their quilts
over a long period of time, taking a
few moments here and there to work
on the quilt. One quilt might take
hundreds of hours to sew.
In Colonial
and pioneer
times, women
held quilting
bees, where
they came
together to talk
and have fun
while quilting.

Story-Telling Quilts

Telling stories
Many quilters sew quilts with
pictures that remind family
members of a story or memory. For
example, a picture of a horse might
remind the family of the time a child
learned to ride.
Quilts may celebrate special times
in someone's life, such as a marriage
or a baby's birth.
The material in the quilt may even
tell part of the story. For example, a
quilt might have fabric from special
occasions, such as a bride and groom's
wedding clothes, the curtains in their
first house, and the outfits the children
wore on their first days of school.
Some patterns tell well-known
stories. For example, the double
wedding ring pattern shows two
rings linked together, just as the
couple is linked in marriage.

The double
wedding ring
decorates this
quilt. The
color is unusual.
Usually quilters
choose an off-
white color for
the background
of this design.

Quilting today
Until recently, many people
thought of quilting as an old-
fashioned activity. But in the last 15
years, people have begun to realize
what an amazing art quilting is.
Quilts are now displayed in art
galleries and museums.
Quilting is a type of art anyone
would be able to try. What designs or
pictures would you put in a quilt you
were making?
The Mini Page thanks Maureen Ose and Angela
Konin, International Quilt Study Center,
University of Nebraska-Lincoln, for help with
this issue. A new quilt museum will open in
April 2008.

Reconciliation Quilt
The quilt above is famous among
experts in art history. It was sewn by
Lucinda Ward Honstain, a woman
living in New York in the mid-1860s,
after the Civil War.
I Each frame tells stories about her
life and the times. People can learn
about what life was like in New York
then by studying this quilt.
The most famous square shows
Jefferson Davis reuniting with his
daughter after the North and South
had reconciled (REH-kuhn-siled),
or made up with each other. Because
of this, the quilt is known as the
Reconciliation Quilt.
Jefferson Davis was the president
of the Confederacy during the Civil
War. His daughter supported the
Union and stayed in the North. After
the war, Jefferson Davis was reunited
with his daughter in New York.

Look through your newspaper to find
several different ways people tell stories.
Next week The Mini Page celebrates
Thanksgiving with stories about kids giving
back to their communities.

This quilt, known as The
Reconciliation Quilt, is a
famous example of an
"album quilt." Each frame
of the quilt is a picture
telling a story, just like a
photo album.

Jefferson Davis reunites
with his daughter after
the Civil War.

Study the frames in this quilt.
What can you learn from them?

This block shows a
black man with a
business. This
would have been
unusual before the
Civil War.

Lucinda quilted this
frame of a sailing

The words are
"Master I Am Free."
Notice how big
Lucinda made the
black man. What do
you think she was
saying here?

Lucinda's daughter
rides her horse.

Stephen Ames will defend his LG Skins title

By Daniel Shube
The Thanksgiving tradition,
and I'm not talking' turkey, I am
.talking about the LG Skins Game
is just around the corner. Defend-
ing champion Stephen Ames was
doing the talking this week about
his plans to defend and his strat-
egy to defeat perennial Skins mas-
ter, Fred Couples.
So here's the Skins according
to Ames.
It's a fun format and enjoy-
able to watch especially the ones
(players) who have been serious
all year and then come out there
and start laughing. Something
that you don't, obviously, get to

see very often.
It's been a good experience.
It's always a better experience
and memory if you win, which,
for me, it was my first time. It was
But, like I said, it's a very un-
usual format. We rarely get to play
that kind of format all year. And it
is a bit more laid back, and I think
that's probably why Freddy's the
king of the LG Skins Game, be-
cause he's very much, that is his
demeanor, very laid back and re-
laxed. That is when he performs
the best.
For me, I would say it's very
much the same way. I tend to

by Daniel Shube

pick the game for what it is, and
try to enjoy it as much as I can. So
this format for me is excellent.
Fred, last year, definitely played
the best out of all of us. And it
came down to the last hole, and it
ended up, all four of us ended up

being in a playoff. And then guys
got eliminated.
And then it was just John
(Daly) and myself who actually
birdied the first hole and went on.
And that's when I ended up win-
ning because John put his ball in

the trap off the tee. So I ended up
with a birdie and he had a bogey.
So it is more timing than anything
Obviously, all the skins are
bigger as the week goes on. The
second nine, the skins become
$50,000 and $75,000 per hole.
And then 18 is $200,000, so very
much timing without a doubt.
I am on a three-week break
right now. I will be completely
rested when I get to play the LG
Skins Game. So I'm looking for-
ward to it. Even more, living here
in Calgary, at that time of the year
it's going to be very cold, so I'll
be quite happy to get to Palm

We've got, two of the four
players, who have won majors.
Freddy, obviously, won The Mas-
ters and Zach Johnson.
I think my confidence right
now is a lot higher than it was at
the end of last year or the end of a
year ago when I won the LG Skins
Game, also the beginning of this
year. I think the swings; the whole
aspect of the game itself has im-
proved a tremendous lot.
You can watch Stephen Ames
defend his LG Skins Game title
