Beaches Energy to adopt efficiency program


Annalese Kraus and
John Michael
Czerdawski will per-
form in "The Beaches
Nutcracker" produc-
tion, sponsored by the
East Coast Ballet
Foundation on
Saturday at 7 p.m. in
the Fletcher
Auditorium. For each
ticket sold, a child in
an orphanage in India
will receive a pair of
shoes and a hot meal.

A new pilot project proposed by.
Beaches Energy Services is planned
to help utility customers from
Neptune Beach to Palm Valley save
money by reducing electric con-
The Energy Efficiency Program
will also reduce future electric needs
if the Jacksonville Beach City'
Council approves the initiative at.7
p.m. Monday in Council Chambers.
: Utility director Don Ouchley said
phase one involves introducing cus-

tomers to the benefits of compact
fluorescent lamps iCFLi versus the
standard incandescent bulbs.
To promote the project, Ouchley
said Beaches Energy Services will dis-
tribute packages of eight CFL bulbs
to 1,000 commercial customers at no
The customers will be selected
based on their lighting usage.
Residential customers will receive a
single CFL bulb along with informa-
tion detailing the benefits.
The city's cost to buy the bulbs for
residential and commercial cus-
tomers is $62,000.

In a Dec. 7 memo, Ouchley noted
that CFLs use one fourth of the elec-
tricity used by an incandescent bulb.
City facilities are in the process of
installing CFLs in place of incandes-
cent bulbs. Ouchley said the pro-
gram will reduce the electric
demand requirements from the
Florida Municipal Power Agency
Future program initiatives by
Beaches Energy will offer rebates or
credits to utility customers for
Installing solar hot water or pool
heaters and the purchase and instal-
lation of energy efficient appliances.

New dugout

at Fletcher

nearly done

Concrete structure cost
more than $250,000

Fletcher High School has a new baseball
dugout, equipped with a scorekeeper's tower,
locker rooms and a section with built in benches,
according to Athletic Director Joe Reynolds.
The project, which was started in February, is
nearly complete, according to Reynolds.
, The project was contracted through Rivers and
Rivers, Inc. and cost a total of $254,516.55 to
build, according to Jim Womack, the school
board's director for design and construction.
The company has a contract to do board proj-
ects valued at less than $1 million and then bid
...hem out 'to subcontractors, he explained. ':.'- -. .
Although approximately $90,000 came from
the city of Jacksonville, the remainder of the cost
was paid.(ot by the Duval County School Board.
"Fletcter basebil'Fhas been waiting quite a long
time for this project," said School Board Member
Nancy Broner, who explained that there is a
lengthy process that schools are required to go
through when they request funding.
There is an ongoing list of requests, which must
go through funding priority review so that the
process is fair throughout the entire district, she
Fletcher also has a relatively new softball
dugout that was built within the last three years.
It has several additional features that the baseball
dugout does not, including plumbing and a con-
cession stand. That dugout cost roughly
$200,000, according to Reynolds.
"Prices for construction have gotten ridiculous-
ly high, said Womack, adding that building prices
have increased by at least 30 percent in the last
few years.

A1A - Mickler signal gets funds .:

A traffic light for the intersec-
tion of State Road A1A and
Mickler Road in Ponte Vedra
Beach - planned for years and
repeatedly unfunded - has
made it into the budget of the
state Department of
Joe Stephenson, director of
Public Works for St. Johns
County, said Monday that the
project is in the DOT's budget
for fiscal 2008, which begins
July 1.
But don't look for the light for
at least a year after that, even
though the project has already
been designed, Stephenson said
at the meeting of the Palm
Valley Community Association.
"The project cannot be adver-
tised for bids until July 1, he
said, after which it takes several
months to get the bids.
The winning contractor must
order the mast arms that are
required by the state, and deliv-
ery of mast arms takes up to six
months, Stephenson said.
"But, at least it's in the budget
next year," he said at the meet-

ing in the Palm Valley
Community Center on Canal
Stephenson summarized
some road projects begun or
planned in the Palm Valley and
Ponte Vedra area, as follows:
* A right turn lane will be con-
structed on Corona Road at the
intersection of State Road A1A.
The project was recently rebid
because of a change order pro-
* Improvements to the inter-
section of Roscoe Boulevard and
Canal Boulevard will begin early
in 2007. For 1,000 feet around
the intersection, the road will

The Leader's Opinion

Hiring unknown

is not businesslike

If you had responsibility for a business, would you hire
someone you had never met to manage the enterprise?
No, probably not. It would not be a prudent or busi-
nesslike move to hire a stranger sight unseen.
Yet that is exactly what the St. Johns County
Commission did this week.
Three of the five commissioners voted Monday to hire
an interim county administTator.
Commission Chair Ben Rich asked Wally Kropacek, a
retired U.S. Customs agent and former campaign worker
'for him, to fill the county's top administrative spot. He
convinced two other commissioners, Tom Manuel and
Ron. Sanchez, ,to go along with him and hire Kropacek -
a stranger to the two- to oversee operations for up to six
months until a permanent replacement is found.
That is not how the public's business should be done.
Kropacek, who was to begin work Wednesday, acknowl-
edged afterward he is a'little rusty, but promised to get up
to speed. After the vote to hire him,'he then met his new
To their credit, commissioners Jim Bryant and Cyndi
Stevenson strongly opposed the hiring. Both suggested.
filling the interim slot with one of the assistant adminis-
trators who is familiar with county staff and procedures.
That could have been done. Or Kropacek could have.
been asked to meet the commissioners and a vote could
have been postponed for a week. There is no county
emergency that requires an immediate hire
In a blatant disregard for businesslike hiring processes,.
the majority chose to accept Rich's assurances that his for-
mer boss was a good choice. Maybe he is, but each com-
missioner should' have made that determination inde-
pendently after careful review. That is how elected offi-
cials should conduct business' - not rubberstamping a
peer's pet pick. . , ,
The public's business should be run like a business, not
a flateinity. J ad .

to minced prunes- one pound,
each- then left them to mac-

cool corner of a closet for a;
few nIonths.
When the fruit was ripe, I
formed the rich dough with
my own hands, using a

eggs. . Slowly, carefully,. I
added the woozy fruit, mixed
peel, almond essence, nut-

from a NMayport Middle School
teacher defending "Mix It Up"
Day' against my earlier criti-
His first claim is that the pro-
gram was voluntary. The article
does not make this clear. Even
if it were, however, "voluntary,"
my criticisms would still
remain valid. In my experi-
ence, as a victim of American
public education, such pro-
grams are about as "voluntary"
as the Hitler Youth or the
Young Pioneers.
Administrators and teachers
have a million ways to pressure
a student to be involved, from
lowering grades on schoolwork
which is graded by subjective
criteria, to ignoring his ques-
tions in the classroom, or to
refusing to give the otherwise
deserving student his cheesy
"Honor Student" bumper stick-
I did not call the school an
"armed camp," as the writer
alleges. My objection was to
uniform members of the
American armed forces lending
the prestige of their uniforms
and their presence to an event
so perfectly un-American. The
use of military personnel, in
uniform, to encourage children
to engage in any particular
brand of "right thinking" is the
stuff of authoritarian govern-
ments, not free societies.
The writer calls this a "purely
innocent event." It is not that
at all, but is an attempt to,
indoctrinate students. Francis
Xavior, one of the leaders of an
earlier authoritarian period
called ' the . Counter-
Reformation, said "Give me the
child until .he is seven."
.The people who. gave us
"Mayport Mix It 'Up" Day.
apparently feel that having the
child in seventh grade will suf- .

fice. It is not the job of a tax-
payer-supported public school
to interfere with children's
thoughts about each other, no
matter how politically incor-
rect they may be. That is the
job of parents. If America still
remains a free country, it
means that (despite the best
efforts of the people who
brought us "Mix It Up" Day) a
Klansman, a Nazi, a
Communist, a follower of the
Nation of Islam, or a supporter
of, Osama bin Laden all have
the right to bring up their chil-
dren as they wish without
those rights being interfered
with government functionar-
The only exceptions to this
occur when the child is being
physically harmed by his par-
ents or if he is harming other
children. Schools should, focus
on teaching matters like
Language Arts, Mathematics
and Science, and leave the
socialization to the parents and
kids themselves.
The writer ignores complete-
ly the fact that I devoted con-
siderable space to means of
solving the alleged problem of
bullying without infringement
on the rights of all students, or
trampling on the prerogatives
of parents. Punishments such
as in-house detentions, suspen-
sions, transfers of schools for
discipline problems or even
incarceration are available.
There is no need to infringe on
the American student's First
Amendment right to free asso-
ciation and there is no need to
infringe on the citizen's Second
and Ninth Amendment rights
to gun ownership in order to
combat ; street crime. Such
infringements are the stuff that
totalitarians who want govern-
ment to'have' a monopoly of
forcegver the citizenry and or
to intloctrinate children into

Hubbard said her writing has
ut in every- become her passion and she
has written a variety of poems,
.some of which have been pub-
lished. She was approached by
a recording studio to turn one
of her poems into a song.
Hubbard selected two poems
and sent them in. Her song,
"There'll Always Be
Christmas," is a testament to
her faith and reflects her out-
look on life, she said.
"Its just the feeling from my
heart. It's what Christmas
means to me," she said.
The song begins with the
'words "There'll. always be

."I've always tried to raise my

The song is not only about
Christmas, but it is also about
having faith, no matter where
you are. Hubbard, whose for-

eran, is deeply, patriotic. One
of the reasons she agreed to
work with the recording studio
on the "Home for Christmas"
CD is that some CDs will be
sent to soldiers in Iraq.
"You feel like you're doing a
little something," she said.

Ohio State and Florida go
head-to-head. ,

Prior to last Sunday, the
jaguars' biggest win of the
season came during the sea-
son-opener Sept. 10 against
Dallas. Interesting that nei-
ther QB in that game remains
the starter. The Cowboys'
Drew Bledsoe was benched in
favor of Tony Romo, and
Byron Lefttwich's injury put,
David Garrard behind center.

Next year's Baseball Hall
of Fame ballot, mailed to
writers last week, is already
causing angst among voters.
Cal Ripken, Jr. and Tony
Gwynn are shoe-ins. The
question, of course, is Mark
McGwire. An informal sur-
vey of voters conducted by
the AP revealed only about ,
20 percent said they
planned to vote for
McGwire on the first ballot.

It was a good win for coach

night over Beaches rival
Nease. The Senators had
struggled through, their first
seven games before finally

tory on the Panthers' home

Michael Vick as a tailback
and starting Matt Schaub at

Dallas Cowboys and if the
running backs aren't
healthy enough to play, *
Vick and Schaub may share
time in the backfield.

describes the dog as a tan, 5-

Williams has denied owning
the dog - claims she was
watching it for a friend -
but her Web site shows two
photos of a tan pit bull
named Bambi. Williams'
spokesman had no comment.

The Fletcher High girls soc-
cer team overcame an early
deficit and steady rain
Wednesday night to earn a 4-
2 decision over visiting Paxon.
With 22:15 left in the first
half, the Golden Eagles'
Tiffany Alexander turned on a
rebound and fired the ball
past Senators keeper Amy
Medis for a 1--0 lead.,
Fletcher's Michelle Tsengas
evened things up about eight
minutes later when she cor-
ralled a pass from teammate
Carolina Lencina, made a
nifty move in front of the net
and buried her shot.
With the score knotted at 1-
all and about three minutes
remaining in the first half,
rain began dousing the pitch
at Jack Taylor Stadium.
Players spent the first por-
tion of the second half adjust-
'ing to the wet, slippery sur-
At the 24:26 mark, however,
Senators freshman Jordan
Dixon headed home, a shot off
a corner kick to give Fletcher a
2-1 advantage.
,Seven minutes later,
Lencina worked her magic
and booted home another
goal to put Fletcher in front,
But Paxon quickly answered
when, at the 14:24 mark,
Alexander scored her second
goal of the game to make it 3-
2., . ' : ." .
The teams traded posses-

Gearing up for the 4th annual Christmas Hash

dd, isn't it, how things
so often happen in
pairs? Just as we got a
new spy flick, 'Casino
Royale;" with none other
than 007, James Bond him-
self, I found myself confront-
ed by another mystery man.
"The name is Quickly; just
Quickly," he furtively whis-
pered to me in the telephone.
"I have an upstanding career
in the local area and I am in
no mood to lose it, so it is
best that you just refer to me
as Quickly."
That worried me; what had
I gotten into? "Of course," I
replied, as though I was Bob
Woodward talking with
Deepthroat and an entire
government was teetering,
about to fall with Quickly's
every utterance, "Your secret's
safe with me."
This was too' much; too
much danger, too much
intrigue, too much too much
for a nervous columnist lust
trying to gather facts for his
next piece.
I had the feeling that my
source would bolt; hang up
the phone and be gone, but
to my surprise Quickly con-
"No one uses their real
name. Some have a code
name already attached when
they arrive; some don't. After

.; . . f


you've done it three times we
give you a name depending
on,the little quirks and char-
acteristics you've exhibited
while you were doing it."
"It?" This doesn't sound
good, I imagined.
i"This will be the fourth
time tht we've done it,"
Quickly said. Then he
uncharacteristically revealed
something about himself: "I
am not usually the one who
organizes these things, but
this time it just happened to
fail. to me."
Then, "We are not as
organized and hard-core as
some, but we know what

we're doing and we get on
with it.
"It will go on for three or
four miles or so, who
knows?" Quickly said. "There
will be some Stops. Some of
the Stops will be at perfectly
innocent looking establish-
ments-restaurants, bars, that
sort of thing. But some of
them may be pre-set, like
maybe out in the woods or at
the abode of someone known
to us. The Stops could be
brief or they could be long;
maybe over halt-an-hour if
we are in the mood."
I swallowed hard and
inquired sheepishly: "What
will be at these places that
you call Stops?"
"That's for me to know and
you to find out," Quickly said
in a tone that made me want
to be the one to bolt. "But
this much I will tell you:
There will be beer, lots of it,
and camaraderie too, it'll
blow your mind."
NMy knees buckled, "Oh
please don't talk of mind
blowing; I have children!" I
thought .to myself.
"You know how it started,
don't you?" Quickly slyly
asked. "It began with a bunch
of British soldiers stationed in
Egypt years ago. It was based
upon the old chase of the
Hare and Hounds.
"The Hare sets off with the

Hounds in hot pursuit. No not coming to the On-In; our

beer left at that Stop must be
completely consumed before

He continued: "Those are
the rules. Too bad for him
that breaks the rules."
SWarily I enquired, "What
might happen to him?"
"Well," said Quickly
emphatically, "he's definitely

all does, but could you give

was growing impatient:
"Again? All right, listen up!

a rather threatening voice.
"Sure," I shakily replied. "I'll

Wheelbarrow is

worth its weight

The freezes of last week
may have caught some
of you off guard, but it
would not have been due to
the weatherman's lack of
adequate warning.
We are fortunate that
technology can pretty accu-
rately predict weather pat-
terns so that if we miss a
given evening's forecast, it is
likely we will be able to pick
one up the next day and
still be prepared.
I hope your plant material
failed well, and that you
have followed through with
ample watering, especially
since it has been a warm
week thus far.
I continue to watch sod
being laid and am con-
cerned that the homeowner
is in the dark about the risks
involved with planting at
this time of year. Be a good
neighbor and talk to them
about the necessity of daily
waterings for at least the
first two weeks.
Today's article will again
be short. I want to offer a
few ideas for the gardener in
your life in the form of gifts.,
For me, the best gift has
always been an extra pair of
hands and feet to do some
of the jobs nwmy husband and
I simply are hot able to per-
form any longer. And sec-
ond to that, having some-
one who can haul off plant
debris that would otherwise
form a mountain at my
curb! I live in a community
where we are not allowed to
leave yard trash curbside
except for the evening just
prior to pickup.
Great for the neighbor-
hood's appearance, but quite
impractical, as I know many
of you would agree. I miss
the ability to have a huge
compost pile where this
stuff would go; but so it
goes, and my yardman's
truckbed often contains my
yard trash which he is then
able to take to his huge
piece of property somewhere
out there in the country.
He is a jewel and I will
not share him with you.
So, onto more practical
things such as gifts. Ones
that can be purchased
always include my number
one item, a pair of hand
pruners, usually the curved
anvil ty-pe. About the size of
a good pair of scissors, these
puppies do tons of work,
and if the money is spent
on a decent pair, they will
not need sharpening, will
not rust, can fit into your
pocket, and do a multitude
of 'tasks. They even will
chop gigantic Landlubber
grasshoppers into bits.
Another favorite of mine
is the longer handled
pruners for branches about
an inch or larger in diame-
ter, used frequently on my
crepes, vitex and angel
trumpets, all very vigorous
The instrument is called a
lopper, and to get a good
pair. you'll probably be
spending about $25, but it is
well worth it These two
tools, the hand pruners and
the loppers are a must for
the gardener/homeowner.
They cost a total of $50.
Good quality steel is the
Personally I like to carry a
folding, curved hand saw
which easily slips into my
pocket. It takes away the
frustration of trying to
prune a branch which is just
a lad bigger than what the
lopper can handle; you can
whip it out of your pocket

Docks decked out for parade

While the push is o to
attract more boats to' jthe
annual Palm Valley Boat and
Light Parade, the event has
long been the battleground
for. a hierce -- yet.,friendly -
"cornpetitioni-"'among dock -
owners on the parade path.
The parade of decorated
boats along the Intracoastal
Waterway heads north from
the Palm Valley bridge at -:30
p.m. Saturday.
Public viewing is' available
at the bridge and three restau-
rants along the path.
Moving at a leisurely pace as
far north as Marsh Landing,

10-mile trek pass within yards
of numerous private docks at
properties on Roscoe
And although many of the
Roscoe residents decorate for
the terrestrial half of the com-
petition, two in particular
have become known for their
dueling docks.
"We've always been decorat-
ing," Mike Holtsinger, one of
the big two, said this week of
his family's holiday tradition,
which started more than 10
years ago.
Holtsinger uses multicol-
ored lights to bring a tropical
theme to his dock, with light-

Denzel plays smart cop in 'Deja Vu'

"Deia Vu" is surely the
most ironic title of one of
the best movies of the year.
The only way in which
this movie is formulaic is
that it resembles John
Travolta's "Blow-Out"
119811, another superb and
underrated thriller in which
the hero grasps at technolo-
gy to try and save a
woman's life.
Denzel Washington plays
vet 'another cop, but after
"Out of Time" and "The
Inside Man," what a treat to
see him play a 'smart' cop.
Here he's Doug Carlin, a
New Orleans ATF agent
called in to help find an
assassin-terrorist who set off
a bomb that killed hundreds
of people on a ferry.
. Carlin is put on the case
because he has a way of
sniffing out relevant details.
This turns out to be
extremely helpful when the
New Orleans police are
shown to have technology
that can show the where-
abouts of anybody, an'y-
where, three-and-a-hali days
before'a given event.
Carlin has discovered that
an innocent and now-dead
woman was a pawn in the
assassin's plot, so he has the
technologists look at her life
just prior to her death.


The late woman is, of
course, too beautiful for
words, and we're given long,
loving shots in which Carlin
beholds her gorgeousness.
At this point, you figure
that the movie will be a bar-
gain-rate version of "Laura"
in which a slack-jawed cop
falls in love with a dead
woman. And you wonder
why the brilliant techno-
geeks are letting this guy use
their up-to-the-minute soft-
ware to pursue some lurid
fantasy. And it is at precisely
this point that you have
gotten it all wrong.
I can't bear to give away
any more plot points.
Suffice to say, the cop is far
smarter than we thought,
and so is the movie - a film
with extremely thoughtful
ideas, that engages its audi-

ence instead of allowing
them to be passive viewers.
The last movie I can think
of that offered so many
clever concepts to chew on
was "Contact" (and that was
10 years ago).
"Deja Vu" is worlds
removed from that sci-fi
gem, yet it has the same sort
of plot twists that come out
of left field and yet seem
wholly plausible when they
add up to the bigger picture.
For once, credit goes to
everyone. To screenwriters
Bill Marsilii and Terry Rossio
for writing such a satisfying
convoluted script. To direc-
tor Tony Scott, who (like his
brother Ridley) seems to be
making better movies in his
later years than he did two
decades ago.
And to stars Washington,
Val Kilmer this best work in
years), and just about every-
one else in the sterling cast.
Like most viewers, I put
off seeing "Deja Vu" after
seeing middling reviews that
complained how convoluted
its plot is. I think a lot of
people have forgotten that
you can engage your brain
at a movie and still have a
great time with it.
"Deja Vu" is rated PG-13
for adult language, and
graphic images of violence.

ESPN revisits Marshall

tragedy in new DVD

"We Are Marshall," an inspi-
rational sports film due out
Dec. 22, pays tribute to a
small West Virginia college
and its hard-luck football team
that experienced what one
journalist termed "the worst
tragedy in American sports."
Marshall University football
players, coaches and several
fans perished in a horrific
plane crash on Nov. 14, 1970.
Southern Airlines Flight 932,
a chartered DC-9, clipped a
West Virginia hillside and
crashed nose first into the
ground. ,
All 75 on board died.
The movie picks up the
story as Marshall attempts to
rise from the ashes with a new
coach and a few players who
were not on the ill-fated
On the 30th anniversary of
the crash, ESPN broadcast
"Remembering Marshall:
Looking Back at the Tragedy
that Touched the Nation."
The 49-minute documen-
tary, recently released as a
DVD by ESPN Home
Entertainment, features inter-
views with surviving family
members and several players
who helped bring Marshall
football back from the abyss.
Reggie Oliver, Marshall's
quarterback from 1971 to
1974, said teammate Larry
Sanders gave him $3 before
Sanders boarded the plane.
"Larry said, "Have me a 6-
pack of Colt 45 ready when I
get back,' " Oliver says on the
A post-game recruiting trip
spaired the life of assistant
coah'-Red Daisoh,"'a Florida
State University graduate who
helped recruit many of the
players who lost their lives.
"The last time I saw the
players and the coaches was
outside the dressing room
after the game," Dawson
"I was heading up to Ferrum
(Va.i [to recruit a junior col-
lege player] and they were
going back to Huntington."
Marshall's team had traveled
by plane to East Carolina
University for a game they
believed they would win.
A late field goal by the host
team dealt Marshall a crush-
ing 16-14 defeat.
Robert Harris, whose son,
Bobby, was a quarterback,
drove down to the game with
his wife.
"We were the only parents
that made it to that game,"
Harris said.

"We sat with the boosters
who came down on the plane
and who returned on the
Harris wanted to drive his
son back to Marshall but head
coach Rick Tolley was so upset
by the loss that Harris' son
didn't have the nerve to ask
the coach if he could ride
home with his parents.
"That's the thing that
haunts me to this day," said
Robert Harris, who blames
himself for not being more
Florida native and defensive
back Nate Ruffin was bumped
from the flight so a booster
could have his seat. He said
the team was excited about
making its first plane trip.
On the return flight, the air-
port near Marshall was socked
in with fog and rain.
Seconds before the crash as
the plane prepared to land,
the co-pilot asks the pilot, "Is
that the approach?"
Ruffin, now:a high school
football coach, helped identify
many of the dead.
Back at Marshall, students in
a high-rise dorm where many
of the football players lived
were fielding phone calls from
distraught parents wondering
if their sons were on the
Pay phones were ringing in
the halls and girls were

an e-mail message. "He always
does a big theme, and has won
many of our past years."
Holtsinger admitted with a
chuckle that he has only won
the dock contest once,
Pindili has won almost every
sear with his elaborate themes,
which change every year and
usually include people in cos-
tumines, Holtsinger saiy.
The competition between
the two is nothing more than a
friendly neighborhood rivalry,
which climaxes every year

worth its weight in gold.

The list could go on and on,

an easy task. Let's keep the
challenges manageable so the
trend to go to zero lotlines

not eliminate all the green

Weekend 9

for Holiday


Family Featurees

Dressing up your holiday table is as simple as
taking a second look at a holiday standard -
Real Butter. With the addition of a few choice
ingredients, butter can take on an unexpected
but appetizing new flavor - one that is sure to
have your guests reaching for more. Flavored
butters, both savory and sweet, are perfect for spreading on
breads, melting on vegetables and embellishing the main
dish, from turkey to steak.
Use the following recipes to incorporate some of the sea-
son's most popular ingredients and flavor combinations -
from fragrant clementines and sweet pomegranate to honey
sesame and marjoram shallot.
For additional flavored butter recipes and a short video
demonstrating how to make flavored butte_-, visit

Tips for Serving Flavored Butters
* Remember that you can make flavored butters ahead of
time and freeze them for up to one month.
* Allow refrigerated crocks or containers filled with
flavored butter to sit at room temperature 15 minutes
before serving.
* Refrigerate flavored butter logs until chilled solid; slice
into 1/2-inch-thick rounds and arrange on a butter dish
prior to serving.
* Dress up a butter log by rolling it in colorful chopped
' nuts, fresh herbs or dried fruit before refrigerating.
* Present flavored butter as a delicious hostess gift - wrap
it up with a holiday bow and attach your favorite ways
for using the butter.

Finding gits that stand out a challenge

When Christmas rolls
around, finding the
gift that stands out
can be a challenge.
Over the course of this past
.,ear, I've written topics rang-
ing from in-home massage
rooms to outdoor showers.
NManv of these had items
that can help you fill out your
shopping list and some are
items I truly love. Best of all,
they're a far cry from the
usual holiday gifts.
1 Towel warmer. Just like a
swimming pool, a towel
warmer is a decadent luxury
to someone who doesn't have
one and a must-have for
someone who does. Another
plus? No more cold, damp
towels. Put your bathrobe
around it and it will be snug-
gly warm on a chilly morning.
2. Martha Stewart's
Homekeeping Handbook.
This weighty tome answers
everything you wanted to
know about homekeeping.
lust like the Joy of Cooking,
Martha's Homekeeping
Handbook is a good all-
around home reference book
that every home should have.
3. Massage table. If you
know someone who gets regu-
lar massages, nothing could
be better than having a per-
sonal massage table to use at
home. No more driving away
from a massage appointment
a greasy, slimy mess. A decent
table runs between $100 and
4. Eureka Quick Up Cordless
Stick Vacuumi. This is a god-
send that I use every single
day and wouldn't live with-
out. At $29 it's a bargain for
the amount of clean it can
give you on both hard and
carpeted floors.
5. Fun at the door.
Beautiful doors can be ruined
Sb a "ding-v" doorbell.
Instead, why not go for fun?
Musicaldoorbell.com sells a
doorbell with over 100 pro-
grammable souInds and
chines. Live on a ranch?



HEEL FIX - Most women
have been in this predicament.
You're walking along and sud-
denly, your heel breaks off
your shoe. I'm always prepared
for this eventuality. I carry a
tube of super bonding glue in
my purse. I use it to glue the
heel to the shoe. I then slip on
the shoe and apply pressure
with m\ foot until the heel
holds. Karen Z.
Like most kids, my children
aren't exactly' thrilled when-
the\ receive clothes for
S Christmas or birthdays.
. However. my sister came up
with a great idea. If she gives
them clothing, she slips little
goodies into the pockets. such
as loose change, small toys., etc.
The kids are always delighted.
Mlelissa C.
When I'm pressed for time and
need to get dinner on the table
in a hurry. I stop at the local
supermarket on my way hoirme
from work. I then pick up vari-
ous vegetables at the salad bar.
Since they're already washed
and chopped, it makes it a lot
Easier for me to prepare the
meal with little fuss and cuts
down on prep time. Ella D.
: inevitable that honey will crys-
tallize over time. However, that
doesn't mean it's rancid. To get
the honey back to usable con-
sistency, place the unopened
, a! in a pot of simmering water
tone inch over a very low
tlamei. After it's cool, you can
use it as you normally would.
It will take several weeks for it
to harden again, but you can
repeat the process. If you like,
use the microwave, on high, at
intermittent 10-second inter-
vals. Beatrice A..

Make your door "moo" when
someone comes. Tiophy
hunter? An elephant trumpet-
ing could signal the arrival of
guests. It's fun and only
about $50.
6. Fountain. Whether it's a
simple whisky barrel or a
more elaborate waterfall, hav-
ing a fountain around the
house creates a relaxing and
enjoyable sound and they're
beautiful to look at. I have a
fountain at the front door and
in the backyard and the
minute I hear them, I relax.
7. DVR. This will revolu-
tionize the way you watch TV
- and that's not an over-exag-
geration. Simple recording is
the biggest benefit. Most can
record just by selecting a show
and pressing "R." Anyone can
do it. Check with your local
satellite or cable service or
purchase a Tivo system from
an electronics store. It's the
electronic must-have for this
S. Luggage rack. If you have
guests often, buy a luggage
rack from your home and
linen store. They cost about
$40, but a real back saver for
your guests - and they make
the guest room look neater,
too. Again, it's one of those
things that if you don't have,
it doesn't seem important. If
you do have it, you can't live
without it.
9. Custom items. Every

enthusiast in your lile.

my handmade item was a
beautiful custom-sized pasta
platter Ithehairypotters.comI.
Or, turn your photos into
paintings icra-pro.com,

with your local photo shop).

Custom items are extra special
and aren't as expensive as you
might think.
