tween a pickup truck and a motorcycle where the motorcycle driver received possible leg
injuries. The crash, which happened across from the Suwannee County Clerk of Court's

I hope everyone had an en-
joyable Thanksgiving. Diane
did her usual fine job on our
meal. If she keeps on, she'll
be as good a cook as my
Mama. It was calm and
peaceful around our house.
The only thing that was'un-
kind to me was the scales. I'm BY SONNY]
sure I didn't gain those three
extra pounds. It must be wa-
ter retention. I don't know how much longer I can
use that excuse. The problem with the eating thing,
it's not over yet. We now move into the candy and.
snack season with another big meal at Christmas.
Then comes the grand finale, New Years with more
snacks and another big meal. I can smell those black
eyed peas cooking now.
To maintain the credibility of the Mayor's Comer,
I always try to give truthful and accurate informa-
tion in my writings. ]: need to make a correction to
my last article. I reported that the solid waste as-
sessment for non-city residents was $248.96 per.
year. The actual amount is half that. The info I saw
*and used was fdr two structures, not one. Evidently.
assessments are made according to the number of
certain type structures on the property. Regardless,
city residents are still getting a deal. Rather than the
reported $1.26, you are getting the 16 pickups at
$2.52 per month above what non- city residents pay.
The city has been in contact with CSX railroads
about giving some of our crossings some attention.
They have gotten in pretty bad shape. The one at
Walker Street especially needs some serious repairs,
A poor job was done on it when repairs were made'
several years ago. Hopefully these repairs will help
smooth the transition from asphalt to rails..We have
asked for a time table as to when these repairs might
be expected to be made.
I must commend the Live Oak Fire Department for
their performance at the fire at Wayne Frier's Mobile
Home Park. The firefighters, volunteers and junior
firefighters did an exemplary job in fighting this gi-
gantic fire..
I thank everyone for their participation in the Fall
HyrvestFe.tivalJ4 activities. Thsqsqne s t scho q
businesses, and individual residences were great.
The scarecrows this year were the best we have had.
I think we wore Carolyn Spilatore out again this
year. We have had conversation about streamlining

AYOR'S the festival next year. A big ,
THANK YOU goes out to
CORNER Poole Realty, Ronnie Poole '
Carolyn Spilatore and the-_,
Suwannee County Tourist De- A
velopment Council for their,-z
sponsorships. I also recognize .a .d
Ivory Cheney and the Live''.
NOBLES Oak Garden Club for their ef' il
forts. Walt's Live Oak Fords'
and Shenandoah Dairy are ap-
preciated for their contributions.
With the approval of county wide voting by the .
citizens of Suwannee County, the complexion of pol- .i
itics will change drastically. Those seeking county -.t
commission seats will have their hands full during rril
election time. It will be a monumental task to see asiVu
many people throughout the county as possible.'; '--!
From now on, Commissioners will have to become"' ,
less territorial and think about the affairs of the en- o
tire county rather than just those in their respective
district. Four of the commission districts extend into
the city limits of Live Oak The Fifth District, made?,,
up of the southern section of the county, will now be, 5.
subject to the vote of residents of the City of Live::
Oak and the rest of the electorate of Suwannee:39s1
County. The power of the voters has been multiplied
four times Mith this change. It will be more impor- .'.-
tant than ever for your elected representatives to be" '
receptive and responsive to their constituents.
I was overwhelmed again this year with the gen-,
erosity of the many churches, individuals; groups
and organizations in our community during the
Thanksgiving season. Over and over again, I heard. :,-
many stories of kindness and giving. Upon becomr~t~cs
ing Mayor, I dubbed our community the CARING ..as
COMMUNITY. Boy did I pick an appropriate name ) hi
It is written in the scriptures that you will be re-'-
\,warded ten fold for your kindness. Many in our -
community have some big time paybacks coming oun
your way.
Don't forget the Vivid Visions yard sale on Friday'
and Saturday, 8 a.m. to 1p.m. at the old City Hall.
Christmas on the Square will kicks off the Christmas
season on Saturday. The parade begins at 6 p.m. on
Saturday.'Lineup-iw~ill ~take place in the shopping,.

Help for sen


I the cold

S.Energy assistance is
!.important to all that re-
ceive it, but it is critical
.-for the elderly \who are
More at risk for life
threatening illness or
death if their home is too
cold in the w%-inter.
Older adults are espe-
ciallt\ vulnerable to hv-
pothermia, or abnormal-
ly low\ body tempera-
ture. The drop in body\
.,ni.perature can be a re-
sult of staying in a cold
place for: too long. Ac-
cording to the National
lbtitutes of Health, hy-
pthermia kills about
600 Americans every
year and half of those are
65 years old or older.
As the body ages, its
ability to endure long pe-
riods of expose to cold is
lowered. Older people
afe at an increase risk for
hypothermia because
certain illnesses, such as
diabetes and medicines,
affect the body's re-
sponse to cold. Hy-
pathermia. affects the
brain, making the victim
ut able to think clearly or
movee well.
Signs to look for that
indicate hypothermia in-
cltide confusion, drowsi-
ness, slowed or slurred
speec h, shivering or stiff-
rues in the arms and
legs, weak pulse or low
blood pressure, or poor
control over bodly move-
ments or slow reactions.

6ne is suffering from the
cold and you have. a

take the temperature and
if it's 96 degrees or low-
er, contact 911 for. emer-
gency help.
To prevent hypother-
mia, in addition to dress-
ing appropriately for the
outdoor climate, older
adults must make sure
their home is warm. En-
ergy assistance is avail-
able for those 60 and old-
er who are having prob-
lems keeping their home
warm. The Emergency
Home Energy Assistance
for the Elderly
(EHEAEP) program is
available for people, 60
years of age and older,
who met income guide-
lines and are experienc-
ing an energy-related
crisis.
A crisis maybe an im-
pending cut-off of elec-
tricity, lack of fuel,
wood, blankets and heat-
ing unit, and broken
heating system.
Individuals interested
in applying for EHEAEP
assistance should contact
the Elder Helpline toll-
free at 800-96 Elder or
800-963-5337. The Elder
Helpline is available
Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.

Mayo. The meeting was held
in the county commissioners
meeting room at 7 p.m.
According to Powell, the
restaurant, which has not
been named yet, will be fam-
ily-friendly. Patrons of legal
age will have the option to
order alcoholic beverages
with meals. It will also have
a game room.
Many residents in opposi-
tion to the alcoholic bever-
age issue were present at the
meeting. Among those pre-'
sent was Wayne Hudson,
pastor of New Beginnings'
Church, who was the first to
speak.
Hudson, in a written state-
ment, which he read to the


board, pleaded with them on
behalf of his congregation as
well as others to deny the
special exception. He stated
that the thought of having
the children play in the game
room while the parents 'en-
joyed'a meal with an alco-
holic beverage made no
sense. Hudson cited other is-
sues such as safety and park-
ing.
Powell was represented by,
his attorney who explained
to the board why his client
wants to establish his busi-
ness and detailed the promis-
es he has made if the special
exception is approved.
According to Powell's at-
torney, Powell has promised
not to have any illuminated
signs on the walls and win-
dows advertising alcohol: no
references to alcohol in the
name of his restaurant such
as the word tavern, and, will
remain closed on Sunday and


Branford Council c


about overgrown p


By George Petrena
Correspondent
, Branford favor Don
Owens brought to the coun-
cil the thoughts about lots
in town that are overgrown,
unkept and uncut.
He said, "We've got to do
something about these
overgrown lots, I've con-
tacted the owners, and they
won't mow. They 'don't pay
'any attention."
Town Attorney Kevin
Daly talked about a form
letter for violations of Chap-
ter 10. "You just fill in the
name of the violator, and a
legal description of the
property, the physical loca-
tion, and send it by certified
mail. If they don't cut the
grass within 30 days, you
go in and cut the grass and
put a lien against the prop-
erty." He stated he would
give the master form to
Donna Hardin, town clerk.

Christmas


Continued From Page 1A

In conjunction with the fes-
tival, the car and truck show
will feature motorcycles, low
riders, classics, muscle cars,
street rods and custom trucks.
There will be some real eye-
poppers in this show, and you
don't want to miss it.
"Christmas in the Country"
is this year's theme that will
be carried out in the parade
that begins at 6 p.m. tomor-
row evening.
The festival kicks off at 8


a.m. tomorrow morning with
the arts and crafts show that
runs until 4 p.m. Visit Santa
Land at Millennium Park
where children can meet with
Santa to let the big guy know
what they want for Christmas.
Entertainment will be pro-
vided throughout the day,
:along with food of all kinds
and every type of arts and
crafts you can imagine.
At 6 p.m., the lighted
nighttime parade begins at the
Suwannee County Mall. The
parade will depart from the


Mall located on Pinewood
Way, head east to US 129
(Ohio Avenue/Martin Luther
King Blvd.) and then head
north to US 90. The parade
will turn west on US 90 and
then turnmsouth on Houston
Avenue to Paul Langford Sta-
dium where it will disband.
Stake out your spot-along the
parade route early, bringing
along your folding chairs, ,
blankets and snacks. The pa-
rade is great, it's long and it's
a delight for all ages. Don't,
leave home those who can't


be out in the night air, just
find a place to park where
they can stay inside their ve-
hicles to watch the parade!
When the parade is over,
head on out to the Spirit of
the Suwannee Music Park
and enjoy the Christmas ex-
travaganza of Suwannee
Lights. It's well worth the
trip, and it's $12 per carload
tomorrow evening with an
6ppdrtunity to visit with San-
ta, enjoy hot cocoa and cook-
ies and live music.


Flu


Continued From Page 1A

more cases will probably sur-
face.
Local physicians and
providers report influenza oc-
'currences to the health de-,
partment and the information
helps the department keep its
thumb on flu activity, Crowe
said.
The first shipment of dos-
es, administered the first of
October, were gone in one
week. After that time patients,
were told to call back each
week to see when the next
shipment xiould arrive.
J.K. and Mary Frances
Davis, of McAlpin, were
among those waiting to get
the vaccine.
"My wife has lung disease,
chronic bronchitis and em-
physema. She is on oxygen
part of the time and has been
told if she gets the flu it
could kill her," said J.K.
Davis, 83.


The Davises called the
health department four or
five times seeking a flu vac-
cine. They were also unsuc-
cessful in getting the vaccine
at Winn Dixie and Walgreens'
after hearing the stores were
offering the shots for one
weekend. Their general
physician previously told
them he no longer adminis-
ters the shots. Finally. the
couple went to Georgia for
their vaccine.
Crowe said usually the
health department gets all the
vaccines at once but this year
they got a partial shipment
initially due to a delaN from
the manufacturer. This
caused the delay in the re-
maining vaccines and kept
many people waiting.
Patients having conditions
making them high risk should
explain the condition to the
immunization nurse for pos-
sible accommodations, said
Crowe.


"Two or three years ago we,
had a shortage. In a situation
like that we identify those
who are high risk and get
them in first," Crowe said.
She added, this year there
should be plenty of vaccine.
Those who are high risk
for the flu include the elderly,
those.with long-term health
problems (heart disease, lung
disease, asthma, kidney dis-
ease, diabetes, neuromuscular
diseases and other metabolic
diseases), those with a weak-
ened immune system (HI'.
long-term treatment that af-
fects immune system), all
children ages 6 months
through 5 years, women who
are pregnant during flu sea-
son. residents of long-term
care facilities, those who are
out-of-home care takers and
healthcare w workers.
"Hand washing is the 'most
effective way to prevent the
spread of disease. We're also
telling people to sneeze in


their sleeve rather than in
their hands," she said.
Crowe said making an ap-
pointment is preferable to
prevent long waits and ensure
enough vaccines are avail-
able.
Those wanting the vaccine
can visit the Suanntnee Coun-
ty Health Department from 8-
11 a.m. and 1-4 p.m. Mon-
day-Friday and Dec. 4 from
6-8 p.m. The Branford clinic
will be giving flu shots from
8-11 a.m. and 1-4 p.m. on
Fridais and Dec. 5 from 8-11'
a.m.
The shots are' $20.
Medicare pays for the vac-u
cines and those %whose insur-
ance covers the shots can.be
reimbursed. For children
through age 18, the vaccine
. is free.
To make an appointment at
Suwannee County Health De-
partment call 362-2708. To
make an, appointment in
Branford call 935-1133.

dismissed a conspiracy
charge against Corbin during,
the trial. A jury later found
Corbin, 50, not guilty of the
two theft counts, according
to Corbin's attorney. George
Blow.
Corbin had been on unpaid
suspension since his arrest in
July. He has now been rein-
stated with back pay and is
expected to return to work,
according to Suvwannee Coun-

City ,Councilman John

, praised McLeod for his role
in restarting the police depart-
ment in 1996 after a long pe-
riod of dormancy. "We started
with nothing," he said. "He
did an excellent job to bring
it all together." "His profes-
sional abilities are beyond re-
proach," Hale added. "He's a

it's quite a step up for him,'
said Councilman Don

'Benny Thomas. Thomas said someone from
tbe"area might be less likely to leave if a .
more'attractive offer came along. McLeod
was born in Live Oak but hadn't lived here
in some time before returning.as police
chief. His decision to leave was nonetheless
complicated by personal ties to the area,
McLeod said.
CBoacilman John Hale, chairman of the
council's Police Committee, said the council
should advertise the position, but ought not


add requirements that exclude local appli-
cants. "I'd prefer somebody local," he said.
"Somebody who's in the community and '.
knows the community." .. ;.'. ,

placement can be found. City Manager

Note: Some of the facts in the following ac-
count have been changed so as to protect .the,
'" identity of those involved.
S No one would help her in New Mexico. so.she
finally fled to Florida; Her parents lived there,
and maybe they could protect her from the mon-
ster who-had once been the man she loved. The
beatings had grown more brutal in recent weeks.
No one in the emergency rooms ever asked any
questions. But one doctor had told her what she
already knewx: the next time you come here, you'll
[ likely end up min the morgue.
She had a few days of peace in Lake City \ith
her parents, but knew she w wasn't safe there. He
showed up there within a week. He said he'd
come to take her back. He said he wouldn't take
no for an answer; She resigned herself to the fact
S that she was going to die.
.The woman's story had a peaceful ending -- at
least for her. While biding his time, the man met
S another woman. He began to take his frustrations
out on her. He beat her nearly to death and was
eventually sentenced to a lengthy term in prison,
Where remains there today. .
SThe woman lives in Suwannee County now.
According to Jennie Lyons, executive director of

that woman isn't the only local resident with a
S tale of violentt abuse.
SThere's a lot to love about Suwannee County.
The crime rate is low, the landscape beautiful;
There's a tendency 10o think we're immune from

berg. "Domestic vio-
lence is more underre-
ported than rape,"
Lyons said. And it's of-
ten reported even less
frequently in rural ar-
eas where a woman
who can't afford a
phone or a car .may
find herself isolated
from agencies and or-
ganizations that offer
help.


But help is avail- Jennie Lyons ,.
able. Lyons said her
organization offers women and children 90 days'
shelter, but their stay can be extended for a vari-
ety of reasons. "If a woman is on a five-month
waiting list tor affordable housing, we're not go-
ing to make them homeless after 90 days," she
said. "They're going to stay five months." All are
welcome, regardless of background. A criminunal
record does not disqualify a \oman from seeking
help from her group, Lyons said. And they don't
havetopay apenny. .
Some progress is being made. It begins with
education, especially of emergency workers.
Doctors are now trained to inquire about suspi-
cious-looking injuries, As are police officers.
Lyons.said the Suwannee County Sherrifs Office
is attuned to thdie problem, and quick to respond to
anything that doesn't look qiute right.
Children are also being taught about the dan-
gers of domestic violence. "There's so much
more going on in schools," Lons said. "Theyr
start teaching violence prevennon in Pre-K."
Circiut Judge David Fina noted the same phe-
nomenon "It's becoming more acceptable to re-
port [domestic violence]." he said. "It's not such a
taboo to get the sy stem involved." But Fina said
that doesn't mean the battle is won -- or that it's
even reached a turning point. "We have to show
victims that they don't have to continue to live in
that atmosphere," he said.
But sometimes education isn't enough. Lyons
said some women are brave enough to lea\ e, but
end uip going back to their abusers out of finan
cial necessity Often with children to support, and
sometimes no marketable skills, they see no oth-
er choice. The economic problem may be the
toughest one to solve.
But something's got to happen.
"We teach our girls early on that there are
places they cannot go, because it's not safe."
Lyons said. "But what \'e should be teaehing''
'fTeni's how\t6 be sate in ftleie'olifholie "' ."

with students who were upset and'feels if he
had been able to work with the students be-
ginning with' summer band camp things would
have been different.
However, the situation did change, he said
"We (the band) scored a 'B' on the marching
festival," he said. "I did in tv o months what
most people do since July, and now I feel like
it was for nothing," he said:.
School Personnel Director Dr. Bill Brothers
said during the probanonary period an em-
ployee can be dismissed without causebut af-
ter that time the only way to cancel a contract
is with cause. .
Brothers said the 97-day rule is not just for
the employer. It gives the employee a chance
to walk away without any negate ity attached.
Suwannee County Schools is still advertis-
ing the band director position. : :;

Bulldog basketball of to ahak start buit'impioving


Season opener


a downer


for the Dogs
Tigers cruise
to 64-36 win
Submitted
The Bulldogs weren't just
dominated by the Columbia
High Tigers in their season
opener No\. 21 in Lake City.
They were "thoroughly domi-
nated" in the 64-36 loss, said
coach Chris Martello.
This year's Columbia team
", returned all five starters from
its 2005-06 5A regular season
district championship squad.
;Columbia beat the eventual
*' 5A state champion,.
Gainesville Eastside, twice in
the regular season last year.
The Bulldogs, though,
graduated seven players from
its talented 2005-2006 squad.
:...-i",This year's team is also tal-
-..iented, but young and mexpe-
rienced.
'' The \arsit. will play with
three freshmen all. ma\
start on any given night-
and return only one starter,
SRyan Hight, from last \ear's
team.
The Bulldogs began the.
'game against a tentative Co-
lumbia defense, but trailed
13-6 at the end of the first.
Columbia turned up the pres-
sure in the second quarter and
the young Dogs turned the
ball over too often and trailed
-" 35-13 at the half. The third
quarter was much like the
.1 second. ending with the
i -Tigers leading 55-19. The
I Bulldogs came alive in the
fourth against Columbia's
more inexperienced bench,
outscoring the Tigers 17-9.
Suwannee freshman'
Shawn Jackson led Bulldog
S- scoring with 13, seven of
, which came in the last period.

"We finally got a sense of
urgency in the fourth quar-

told his boys after the game.
"We need some more of
that."
Marcus Walker led. the

Ryan flight had dignf,
Shawn Jackson seven,
Frank Snead six, Jay
.Chambers and Scott Iutler
five each, Sharrod Lee four,
Jay Chambers three and
Collis Givens two.
The Dogs may be in better
shape tonight at Riegeview
in their first District 3-4A
game of the season. At least
they'll be at full strength.
Suwannee (0-2) has been
playing shorthanded all sea-
son, with four players
benched for disciplinary rea-
sons. The slate's finally
clean and everybody will be
eligible against the Panthers
in Orange Park. Tip-off is at
7:30 for varsity and 6 p.m.
for junior varsity.

event.
Roper also made some im-
pressive changes to her
physique. She began the
)competition on Aug. 1, at a
body weight of 156 pounds.
PHer motivation was to 'get in
better shape for her.20 year
reunion, and boy did she.
On Oct. 27, Roper '
weighed in at a remarkable
J124 firm pounds. That's a
total of 32 pounds in 12
'weeks. She went fron;a, size
11 to a size one-two. She
also achieved some unex-
pected results from the con-
test.
"I never imagined how
much my life would
'change," she said. "It taught
I


me to make better food
choices and make exercise a
part of my daily routine. My
energy level is enormous. I
am more pleasant to be
around which allows me to
live an even more active
lifestyle. I've learned that
exercise is not something
people do'just for fun, it is a
way of life."
Roper's key was her sup-
port group. "My husband
and children have been be-,
hind me 100 percent by en-
couraging me when I needed
it," she said. "I could not of
accomplished this much,
without them."'
"The contest gave me the
initiative that I needed to
continue on," she added.
"Now I also know I can do
it."

The gift of


mercy


The dictionary defines mercy as kind or:
compassionate treatment of an offender.
Furthermore, it denotes compassion where.
some form of punishment is expected or
deserved. The gift of mercy is truly a gift from
God, and when we show kindness and mercy
toward someone we are reflecting God's love.
The Holy Spirit is always present whenever the
grace of mercy is extended to another, and
those that receive compassion cannot help but
feel the love of God. Jesus said, "Blessed are
the merciful, for they will obtain mercy."
(Matthew 5:7) Being merciful is not always easy,
especially if we have personally been offended in
some way; however, remember that we are
always in need of God's grace. When we reflect'
on the grace of mercy, we usually think only
about the act of forgiveness; however,
supporting others and being charitable to those
in need are also expressions of mercy. Being
thankful for the many blessings which God has
given to us, and then being able to share these
with the less fortunate is the noblest trm of
compassion; but more importantly it is doing,
His will and sharing His love.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow
me all the days of my life; and I will
dwell in the house of the Lord forever
New K.J.V Psalm 23:6

First Baptist Church youth choir presents free dinner theater


Submitted
First Baptist Church youth choir will present
"For Unto Y'all, A Cowboy Christmas" at 6'
p.m., Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 9-10. This un-
conventional but captivating musical about Je-
sus' birth is told with an Old West theme which
will be enjoyed by young and old alike. The per-


formance is a dinner
theatre and will be pre-
sented in the Family
Ministry Building, 401
West Howard Street,
Live Oak. Admission to
the dinner and play are
free!
The musical shares the
story of Jesus with an
old West flair. Mary and
Joseph are portrayed as
a Wyoming Territory
couple making their
way through rowdy
bunches of cowboys in
anticipation of Jesus'
birth. As in the age-old
story, Jesus is indeed
born in a livery stable,
but the news is deliv-
ered by the angel
Gabriel to cowboys
working their herds on
the plains.
You'll laugh and won-
der as these young peo-
ple present the old, old
story in a new way!
Gabriel may have a
drawl as he declares,
"For unto y'all is born
this day, right over yon-
der," but the truth and
joy of Christ' birth re-
mains the same today,
cowboy accent or not!
Dinner and the play
are free, however, to re-
serve your spot, tickets
r st be'bbfained at no
charge from the church
office. Call 386-362-1583


for additional information. Come and be blessed
by this "cowboy version" of the ageless story of
Jesus' birth!

There was an unusual 'sight at
parking lots of Kingdom Halls of
Jehovah's Witnesses all over this
area recently. There were no cars
there for the English meetings. The
reason for this abnormal occur-
rence was that all the congrega-
tions in this area were at the As-
sembly Hall in Daytona Beach for
a one day meeting. Most of the
Halls in this area are shared by
more than one congregation to
make the best use of the. existing
buildings.

hear encouragement to "Be In-
tensely Occupied with the Word"
which was the theme of the special
meeting. The principal speaker of
the day, Kenneth Flodin, stated,
"The most effective method in
teaching about God is the skillful
use of God's own words found in
the Holy Bible. Knowing what
portion of the Bible best answers
the need of those who look to God
for guidance is the goal of Jeho-
vah's Witnesses." During the spe-
cial program this theme was re-
peated over and over again. Using
Bible examples of zealous teacher
such as the Apostle
Paul, all in attendance
were encourage to ex-
amine God's word dai-
ly and use it effectively
in their ministry.

Coping with

holiday grief
Submitted
The loss of someone dear caa
be especially acute tdiing the
holiday season-a time often
steeped in tradition. Grief dur-
ing these normally joyous
times can seem overwhelming,
but planning ahead, accepting
your limitations, and allowing
family and friends to help can
ease the stress of spending this
holiday season without a loved
one.
Some tips on coping with
holiday grief:
Remember your loved one
by honoring his or her pres-
ence. "Light a candle or set a
chair at the table and call it
'Dad's Chair,"' suggests Haven
Hospice's Bereavement Pro-
gram. Manager Nina Powell.
"You might encourage every-
one at the holiday table to ex-
press thanks for this person and
the role he or she played in
your lives."
Appreciate the people close
to you and create a network of
support. "Sharing memories
connects the past by bringing it
forward to the present, which
produces hope for the future,"
says Haven Hospice Chaplain
Jack Donovail. Sharing a fa-
vorite memory with family and
friends provides a release and
can bring a special celebration
within the grief.
Many people will be will-
ing to help you any way they
can. Let them. Serving as host
or hostess can be difficult if
you are grieving. If it has been
your job to organize the holiday
feast, let another family mem-
ber do it this year. Accept your
limitations at this time.
Many community organiza-
tions provide grief support ser-
vices. Haven Hospice's Heal-
ing Hearts program offers a
number of free and confidential
grief counseling services for in-
dividuals and families experi-
encing loss.: To register for a
support program, contact
Cheryl Bailey at 352-692-
5100. Inaddition, Powell facil-
itates the Community Bereave-
ment Coalition of North Cen-
tral Florida, a group of profes-
sionals and paraprofessionals
who provide grief support ser-
vices to anyone experiencing
loss. For more information call
352-692-5111.

An active social life is something most teenagers
desire. Since the teen years are traditionally not a
time associated with the most responsible behavior,
parents understandably worry about their teenage
kids in social situations.
Much of that worry is rooted in the fear that teens
will attend parties that are unsupervised and
someone could get hurt. Part of quelling that fear
involves parents becoming more active in their
teens' social lives, something that can be done by
letting them throw a party, but laying down sound
ground rules beforehand.
SPlan the party together. Part of the fun of
hosting a party, even for adults, is putting together
an evening you know your friends will enjoy. Kids
will enjoy that as well. whether it's choosing a
movie to watch h or helping. go~. the food or even.
desinini imitations. in addition, gi\ ing kids some
of the responsibility will likely lead to them
approaching the party more responsibly, as they'll
get to see that hosting a party is more than just
getting together and having fun.
Set parameters well in advance. Parties can get
out of hand when the host and guests don't know
what to expect when the evening starts. During the
party planning with your teen, set guidelines as to
what will be happening and when. For instance,
decide on a start time and end time for the party,
and let the guests know well in advance of both of
these times. If kids know what to expect, they're
less likely to get out of hand.
Part of setting these parameters is establishing
what is and isn't acceptable behavior. Let potential
guests know the difference between those two
things well in advance, whether it's through


S for


Keeping Teen



Parties


under



control

invitations, a mass e-mail or simply by having your
child tell them. Parties are supposed to be fun, so
too many rules could negate the point of the
evening. But establishing a few simple parameters
to abide by should be discussed with everyone.
No drugs or alcohol. Kids should know that
drugs or alcohol will not be served or tolerated at
the party. Not only are those illegal and bad for
teenagers, but they could land the host's parents in
hot water as well. Many areas have strict liability
laws when it comes to teens and drinking or drugs,
placing much responsibility on the parents of the
party host if teens get into trouble, or, worse yet, get.
hurt as a result of drugs or alcohol. Parents could


land in jail or'end up in court.
There are also other steps to ensure kids don't
drink or do drugs at the party. While parents might
think not serving alcohol is all they need to do,
keep in mind teenagers are resourceful. Lock all
liquor cabinets and remove all prescription
medications from counter tops or cabinets. Teen
years are experimental ones, where kids often will
try things for the sake of trying them. Don't leave
anything to chance by leaving easily accessible
pills or alcohol out in the open.
SExpect the unexpected. Particularly at teen
parties, uninvited guests have a way of stopping by.
While this isn't necessarily'cause for alarm, parents
should make their presence known if or when any
uninvited guests show up. Also, make the
aforementioned parameters known to the-new-...
glests.
Discuss possible scenarios with your teen.
Discuss with your teen specific scenarios and what
he should do in case of them. For example, discuss
what to do if a guest arrives inebriated or brings
alcohol to the party.. Such scenarios are common
among high schoolers, and should be expected.
Other situations, such as what to do if a guest gets
sick or unruly, should be discussed as well.
Have transportation arranged. Make sure all
guests have a ride home, and their parents or
guardians are aware of when they should be picked
up. In addition, ensure a guest never gets behind
the Wheel of a car if he has been drinking. Many
times teen parties have turned tragic because of
drunken driving. Parents should check all guests
for sobriety before letting anyone leave for the
night.


Get wrapped up



in gift wrapping


Of all the occasions during the
year, the holiday season certainly
puts your gift-wrapping techniques
to the test. With dozens of presents
to trim, tape and tinsel, you'd best
know how to wrap a gift correctly.
If you can use a little gift-
wrapping help, consult these step-
by-step tips and you'll be an expert
in no time.
Have all of your materials
within reach. You'll need gift
wrap (paper on a roll presents a
more polished looking finished
product than pre-cut wrapping
paper squares, which often leave
deep creases), translucent tape,
scissors, gift tags, bows/ribbons, if
desired.
2. Rectangular gift boxes are
the easiest to wrap, so if your
gift is an awkward shape, try
placing it in a gift box first. Place
the box on a table alongside the
gift wrap and pull out enough
wrapping paper to wrap it
widthwise around the box with 2


inches of slack. Also make sure
there is enough wrapping paper at
each end of the box to cover the'
ends completely when the
wrapping paper will be folded over
them. It's better to overestimate
than underestimate these amounts;
you can always cut off the excess.
3. Mark the length of paper
you need with a pencil, and
cut straight across.
Place your gift box face-
,Tdown on the paper. Pull up
one edge of the paper on the long
sides of the box and tape to the'
center of the box. Do the same on
the other side, but fold the paper
down about an inch to form a neat
edge and then secure with tape.
Visually gauge the amount
Sof paper you have at each end
of the gift boxes (the shorter ends
of the box). Trim away any extra
paper so that the remaining flaps
are long enough to cover the box,
but short enough to fold over
smoothly into flaps.


6. Turn the box so that one
-short end is facing you. Grasp
the left and right edges of the
wrapping paper and push the sides
in so that top and bottom flaps are
formed in a"V" shape. Make sure
the edges are pushed in as far as
they will go without ripping the
paper. Tape the edges to the box.
Repeat the process with the other
short end of the box.
7. If you are affixing ribbon,
Make sure that the box is face
up with the clean side of the
wrapping paper showing (taped,
crease side is down). Pull out a
long length of ribbon and cut.
8. Lay the ribbon across the
long length of the box so that
the box is centered beneath the
ribbon. Wrap the ribbon ends
underneath and criss cross so that
you can now bring up the ribbon
on the short width of the box back
to the top. Tie in a knot and then a
bow. Or, place a self-sticking bow
over the ribbon knot.

PerB e o 141, k, if.


For a little girl, there is no
more magical gift to receive
during the holidays then a
beautiful new doll. Despite all
the high-tech toy crazes,
classic doll play has withstood
the test of time, giving
children today the same
wonderful imaginative play
experiences it has for past
generations. Dolls are
important to children at each
stage of development,
providing comfort, security,
and "an [always] available
friend." Here are some helpful
tips from the experts at
Corolle on how to pick the
right play doll for the right
age:
The size of the doll should
be proportionate to a child's
size and strength. When she
cradles the doll in her
forearm, she should be able to
hold the doll's bottom in her
hand, and its head should
nestle in the crook of her
elbow exactly the way a
baby would be held by an
adult. The weight of the doll
should also be proportionate
to that of the child, which

makes the doll easy to
manage. Here are some other
tips specific to the child's
level of development:
0 +: As a baby begins to
investigate her new world of
shapes and textures and
develops essential skills, she
needs a snuggly security
companion. Select a plush
and washable doll that is
lightweight and between 10-
and 12-inches tall, perfectly
sized for tiny hands to hold
and hug.
18 months: As baby
transitions to the toddler
years, she begins to care for
and nurture her doll, imitating
her parents. Select a doll that
will make an ideal playmate:
Look for a doll that is about
12 inches that is soft,
lightweight, and easy to dress
and undress.
3 years +: Little girls at this
age begin to act out many
teal-life situations with their
dolls. They may become big
sister, mother or babysitter.
Baby dolls encourage
creativity and inspire pretend


play memories young girls
will cherish forever. For the
added fun of hair play,
choose a doll with well-
rooted hair that can be
combed.
5 years +: Girls begin to
project themselves into their
world and start to develop
and value friendships. In
turn, they are looking for
playmates. Select dolls that
have a variety of wardrobe,
hair design and accessory
choices.
