public meetings, clean
up trash
By Bethany Chambers

DAYTONA BEACH - It may be a green space, but
it's also a red-hot piece of property.
A 35-acre, 500-foot long forested area owned by
Volusia County surrounding the Daytona High-
lands neighborhood is once again at the center of a
debate between county officials and neighborhood
residents.
In question: Whether that land should be left wild
or whether it should be maintained and possibly
developed by the county.
Residents say this piece of property is their only


Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, but county
officials argue the area has become a danger to any-
one who passes through because of unhealthy
trees and piles of trash.
Recently, the Volusia County Council voted to
repeal old resolutions that essentially prevented .
county crews from entering or maintaining the
property and moved to begin planning for its
future.
By unanimous vote Dec. 18, council members
said they wanted county and city staff, university
and high school representatives and neighborhood
residents to meet to discuss what should happen to
the land, commonly called a buffer zone.
In the meantime, the county will perform an
environmental assessment and begin cleaning up
years' worth of storm debris and trash to make the


prop- -
erty safer.
But, county officials say, they won't be promoting
development any time soon.
"I'm still supportive of the buffer," said County
Council Chairman Frank Bruno.
The county simply needs access to perform rou-
tine maintenance work, he said.
"We can't have children playing in there with
trees coming down. We don't want that liability. A

Construction costs


ballooning over soil


contamination
Commissioner: City is not 'flowing
free abundance of money'


By Bethany Chambers
bchambers@hometownnewsol.com
HOLLY HILL - Construc-
tion on the city's wastewater
treatment plant will take
longer and cost more than
expected, city officials said,
and it's not uncommon.
But one commissioner
said she doesn't want delays
and cost-increases to
become routine in city proj-
ects.
Meadors Construction,
the contractor updating and
expanding the city's waste-
water treatment plant,
asked the city for an addi-
tional 31 days and $104,000
to complete the $4.6-million
project that began in
November and was original-
ly slated to end in March.
The Holly Hill City Commis-
sion approved that request,
called a change-order.


Funds for the change-
order are available from the
loan covering the project,
originally estimated at
about $5 million, and the
plant should now be com-
pleted in April.
The increases were the
result of contaminated soil
found at the public works
yard, between LPGA Boule-
vard and 10th Street.
When removing ground-
water from the construction
area, workers smelled a
petroleum odor, said public
works director Chris Hurst.
Construction was halted
while inspectors made sure
tainted water wasn't being
transferred into a nearby
pond.
Ultimately the smell was a
false alarm, but the time
had already been taken and
the money spent.

2008 in Volusia County


had its ups and downs


Staff report
Volnews@hometownnewsol.com
Like other areas of the country,
Volusia County experienced both
highs and lows this year Excitement
over a spirited presidential election,
including visits from both candi-
dates, two locals winning gold
medals in the Summer Olympics and
exciting changes at Daytona State
College was diminished by drastic
budget cuts in the school system, a
rising unemployment rate and tragic
crimes. But with a new federal
administration taking over and
promises from local officials to work
with what they've got to improve the
lives of Volusia County residents,
2009 can only be better We hope.
Up, up and away
Traveling to and from Volusia
County got a little bit harder this
year, as two major airlines pulled out
of Daytona Beach International Air-
port.
AirTran Airlines pulled out of the
county-run airport in May and Con-
tinental Airlines followed suit in Sep-
tember.
The losses meant employees were


laid off, travelers had fewer flights to
choose from and ticket prices rose.
Overall, the airport's traffic, which
had climbed in 2007, declined.
Continental had been flying in
and out of the airport since 1988, but
company representatives said that
the "financial performance of the
airport coupled with the high cost of
fuel" led to the departure.
AirTran, which had only been fly-
ing in and out of the airport since
2007, could come back next year
during peak tourist seasons.
'Straight talk,' 'Change' come
to area
At the height of the presidential
campaign, Volusia County residents
got an idea just how important their
votes really were when both candi-
dates made stops in the area.
Residents had less than two days'
notice for visits by both president-
elect Barack Obama and Arizona
Sen. John McCain, yet thousands
turned out, including supporters of
all ages and state and local elected
officials.

enough for one local group
of women, who turned their
small gathering into a com-
munity event to collect toys
and bicycles for needy chil-
dren.
Only one thing has stayed
the same in the 12 years the
self-proclaimed "Ho Ho Ho
Girls" have hosted their
annual Christmas party: It's
still a women-only event.
This year the 10 women,
allVolusia and Flagler Coun-
ty residents, hosted a party
for 450 of their closest lady
friends, collecting 58 bicy-
cles and more than 1,000
toys for seven area social
service agencies that serve
children.
The lunch party, held at
the Halifax River Yacht Club
two weekends before Christ-
mas, had a buffet, bar and
DJ. It was free to the women
invited, with the 10 Ho Ho
Ho Girls splitting the tab.
Suzy Robinson and
Audrey Ottenstein of Day-
tona Beach founded the


group when they realized
many of their aging friends
were missing out on the
Christmas spirit.
"We had so many wid-
owed friends who didn't get
invited to things and were
spending Christmas alone,"
Ms. Robinson said, "so we
came up with the idea of the
women-only party where
they could eat and drink and
sit on Santa's lap and get
their picture taken."
The idea was that the
women invited would only
have to give a gift to get in.
"They just love to shop,
especially if their children
and grandchildren are
grown or they don't have
any," Ms. Robinson said. "It's
the best feeling to give a gift
from the heart."
This year, toys were
donated to the Children's
Advocacy Center, Our Chil-
dren First, Children and
Family Services, the Early
Learning Coalition, the Rose
Marie Bryon Daycare Cen-
ter, Domestic Abuse Shelter
and Dream-a-Wish Founda-
tion.
The camaraderie carried
on this year, too, between
new friends and old.
"I just had my 50th
reunion at Mainland (High
School), and there are five of
my graduating classmates
here," Ho Ho Ho Girl Karen
Hale of Ormond Beach said
in astonishment.
As they listened to the
Shania Twain song "Man, I
Feel Like a Woman" and
other "girl power" tunes,
several of the party guests
said they put as much
thought into their donations
as they do their own fami-
lies' gifts.
Mary Douglas, 74, of Day-
tona Beach and Dolly Mott,
78, of Ormond-by-the-Sea,
said they go to great lengths
to find the hottest toys.
They also said they tend to
shop for some of the hardest

kids - boys, tweens and
teens.
A grandmother of three
boys, Ms. Mott said she
brought this year's "it" toy:
the RipStik skateboard.
"I try to find out what's
most popular," she said. "I
go and ask the children. I1
watch them in the store. I
follow them."
Ms. Douglas, who brought
classic Tonka trucks, agreed.
"I ask the parents if their
child can help me buy a toy,"
she said. "The parents will
look at you, but once you tell
them what you're doing,
they're very willing to help."
Rachel McGrath, one of
the most recent additions to
the Ho Ho Ho Girls, said her
four children are grown so


she went with a perennial
favorite.
"A bicycle is always a sure
thing," the Port Orange resi-
dent said.
This year, the Ormond
Beach Wal-Mart helped
make the Christmas magic
even easier on donors by
agreeing to assemble. the
bicycles and deliver them to
the Yacht Club the day of the
party for free.
As the 10 "elves," hus-
bands and friends of the Ho
Ho Ho Girls, sorted gifts by
gender and age of the recipi-
ent, one thing became clear:
A lot more kids would .be
opening up gifts this year.
"Christmas," Ms. Douglas
said, "should be a wonderful
time of year for all kids."

create a Christmas for teens


By Jamye Durrance
Durrance@hometownnewsol.com
VOLUSIA COUNTY -
For most children and
teenagers, the excitement
of Christmas Day is all in
the morning activity of
waking up and ripping
open the presents under
the tree while surrounded
by family.
But, for more than 1,200
homeless children in Volu-
sia County, Christmas
morning this year didn't
include a tree, presents, a
family or a home.
Some were recently dis-
placed by a fire while oth-
ers have been homeless for
months, said Pam Woods,
a Daytona Beach City
Commissioner and home-
less liaison for Volusia
County Schools.
Despite the obstacles,
Santa found 25 of those

homeless teens, giving
them a Christmas they
didn't expect..
Employees from the
International Speedway
Corporation and NASCAR
played Santa, buying
everything on the wish
lists for the teens, all stu-
dents at high schools
throughout the county.
"(The teens) most likely
would have no Christmas,"
said Donna Sue Sanders,
Community Affairs Direc-
tor for International
Speedway Corporation.
The 1,100 employees at
the Speedway and
NASCAR offices all
received e-mails with the
wish lists for the teens,
with requests for every-
thing from clothes to video
games to books. Each
department adopted one
teen, buying everything on
the wish list.
One week before Christ-
mas, the employees
wrapped all the presents
and Ms. Woods delivered
them to each student.
"Some are just so excit-
ed, they open them right
there," Ms. Woods said.
"They are so appreciative."
The employees focused
on teens because they are
often forgotten during the


holiday season because of
the focus on younger chil-
dren in shelters, Ms.
Woods said.
Ms. Sanders said each
gift sack contained at least
one new outfit for the
teens.
Being surrounded by all
the latest fashions and
gadgets at school can be
hard on the teens.
"For a high school or
middle school student,
wearing that new outfit
makes them feel good
about themselves," she
said. "It gives them a whole
new mindset."
Ms. Sanders said the
sour economic situation
and her company's own
recent layoffs didn't
diminish the giving from
her coworkers.
"This brings out the hol-
iday spirit the most," she
said. "There was absolute-
ly no indication of anyone
giving less. I was over-
whelmed by the response."
The program started last
year with 16 teens and Ms.
Woods and Ms. Sanders
said they plan to continue
it again next year, possibly
with more students.
"It is just a great pro-
gram," Ms. Sanders said.
"We continue to realize the
need."

trash there and then other
people feel they can come
and dump their trash," he
said. "We need to stop it, clean
it up and come up with a
plan."
After cleaning out the area,
the county has proposed
adding a walking trail with
places to sit and relax, Mr.
Bruno said. Plans are depend-
ent on funding and would
require another public vote.
Kathi Radcliffe, a board
member of the Daytona High-
lands Civic Association, said
she has no objection to
adding a trail.
"We know there's going to
be some compromise. I don't
have any problem with a
trail," the 11-year resident
said. "We like to hike back
there."
Others, though, said they
worried about encouraging
change. The Highlands was
one of Florida's first subdivi-
sions when it was built in the
1920s and it has largely
retained its quiet charm, said
20-year resident L. Roland
Blossom, an attorney repre-
senting the homeowners'
association.
"Many people don't know
the neighborhood exists
because it has been protected
over the years by (the buffer),"
he said. "It has stabilized
property values and kept fam-
ilies here in ... many cases

For the city, he'll be working
on reducing crime, especially
drug activity. Already he has
called for a "Crime Reduction
Summit," which will take
place at 10 a.m. Jan. 31 at Sica
Hall. There will be a public
meeting and then citizens will
be invited to provide confi-
dential information about
suspected drug activity in
their neighborhoods and


over 50 years."
The council's most recent
vote came on the heels of a
discussion about the property
that occurred at a Dec. 4-
meeting. That discussion did
not appear on the meeting
agenda, making residents sus-
picious, they said.
"They've been very sneaky
about this all along," said
long-time resident Tanya
Camara.
At that meeting, Council-
man Art Giles, whose district
includes the Highlands, voted
against repealing the resolu-
tions because, he said, he
worried about the lack of pub-
lic input. He was one of two
council members to vote
against it.
But with several residents
present Dec. 18, he said he
could finally support what
was passed.
Right now the buffer is
"horrible," he said.
"If we have access to enter
the property, have joint plan-
ning meetings and get some
type of communication there
with all the stakeholders, it
could wind up a year or two
from now something we all
can be proud of," he said.
Some residents, however,
said they still believe the
county was motivated to open
this discussion again by
Embry-Riddle officials, who
asked to lease the land to
build a parking lot and more
athletic facilities in November
2007.
University officials also
offered to patrol and maintain


code enforcement issues.
"I want to emphasize this is
going to be done in a confi-
dential fashion," he said. "If I
have any success, it will be let-
ting criminals know Holly Hill
is a little bit harder place to do
crime. That would be an
accomplishment."

Complaints about The Pre-

Future of beach
management uncertain
Owners of more than 100-

sion stands got unwelcome
news when the Volusia Coun-
ty officials extended expiring
10-year contracts for only
one year.
County officials said they
needed time to develop a
request for proposal bid

tracts.
A series of public work-
shops and an on-line survey
sought input from conces-
sionaires, residents and
municipalities.
Many vendors worried that
existing concessions would
be forced out. destroying the
unique beach experience
that tourists expect.
Attorney David Hood, rep-,
resenting the Volusia County
Concessionaires Association,
proposed that his organiza-

streamline the contracting

an idea county officials
seemed receptive to.
City officials also weighed
in on beach management,
with many saying their cities
would be willing to take on
more responsibility.
In Ormond Beach, officials
set aside $75,000 for beach
management and asked the
county to open beach gates,
lift tolls, establish more park-
ing, upgrade signage and
approaches and allow cities
to pay for additional life-
guards and policing.
Daytona Beach officials
asked for more say on how
the beach is run, and drafted
a resolution asking for a sit-

topic.

School district deals with
some serious arithmetic
For Volusia County
Schools, it was more arith-
metic than reading and writ-
ing this year.
The district faced a more
than $50-million budget
shortfall, prompting a variety
of cuts, including school clos-
ings and shorter workweeks.
School officials said the
decrease in funding was the
result of less state and federal
dollars, a decline in student
enrollment and Amendment
1.
Early in the year, the dis-
trict announced the closing
of seven schools over the next
four years. Four of those
schools will ring their bell for
the last time this year.
More than 200 teachers
were laid off, prompting
Volusia Teachers Organiza-
tion president Andrew Spar
to ask for cuts at the adminis-
trative level rather than the
front line.
After calling the district's
budget figures "fuzzy math,"
Superintendent Margaret
Smith filed a personal lawsuit
against Mr. Spar claiming
some of his comments had
been false and defamatory.
The cae, was later
driped
In October, Superinten-
dent Margaret Smith took a
two percent pay cut, saving
the district $3,500.
Over the summer, employ-
ees felt the crunch when the
district implemented .shorter
workweeks and rules ban-
ning electrical devices from
employee desks.
.Going into 2009, school
officials said they are already
expecting more cuts.

Green Wave moves
to new digs
The only Catholic High
School in Volusia County
moved to a new $28-million
campus on LPGA Blvd. in
August.
Father Lopez High School,
previously located at the
intersection of Madison Ave.
and Nova Road in Daytona
Beach, relocated to a 98-acre
campus with state-of-the-art
classrooms, science labs,
computer labs and a movie
production studio.

Fun night ends in
gunshots near county
parking facility
Three Daytona Beach
teens were shot as they left a
Volusia County owned park-
ing garage in July after an
evening of laser tag and go-
carting.
Following a verbal alterca-
tion in the Earl Street parking
garage, Kaitlin Kelley, 16,
Justin Ware, 14 and Lauren
Sanders 14, were followed by
a car driven by a couple later
identified as Vladyslav Vov-
nenko and Michele Loncala,
as they left the garage.
According to police, the car
driven by Ms. Loncala pulled
along side the teen's vehicle
and Mr. Vovnenko allegedly
fired multiple shots at them
before speeding away.
Justin was hit numerous
times, with one bullet lodg-
ing dangerously close to his
spine.
Ms. Kelley was hit in the
foot and Ms. Sanders was not
injured.
The suspects remained
unknown until Ms. Loncala
came forward in October.
Represented by assistant
public defender Virginia
Chester, Mr. Vovnenko plead-
ed not guilty before Circuit
Jue pavidWalsh in Decem-
ber.
Mr. Vovnenko remains in
Volutisia County Branch ]fail
awaiting trial scheduled for
Feb. 16.

What's in a name?
Daytona State College (for-
merly Daytona Beach Col-
lege, formerly Daytona Beach


Community College)
officially adopted its new
name to reflect its status as
an accredited college offering
four-year degrees, said presi-
dent Kent Sharples.
The 50-year-old Daytona
Beach institution evolved
after the Florida legislature
allowed two-year colleges to
expand and offer four-year
degrees in 2000.
The college's first expanded
degree offered was a Bache-
lor of Applied Science.
"It was the board's feeling
that the term Daytona State
College accurately reflected
the emerging system," Mr.
Sharples said.

Local Olympians
celebrated
Not one, but two Volusia
County natives won gold
medals in the Beijing
Olympic Games.
Port Orange native and
swimmer Ryan Lochte, 24,
brought home two gold and
two bronze medals while
Ormond Beach native Phil
Dalhausser, with his partner
Todd Rogers, captured the
gold medal in beach volley-
ball.
Ryan, a Spruce Creek High
School graduate, was hon-
ored by the city of Port
Orange with a street named
after him near City Center
Drive.
Phil, known as the Bejing
Beast" attended Mainland
High School.
He was honored by the city
of Ormond Beach with a
commemorative marker in
the Birthplace of Speed Park
and the city of Daytona
Beach presented him with a
"key to the city."

Man on bike runs into
Votran bus

A Daytona Beach man was
killed when his bicycle
collided with aVotran bus on
Orange Avenue just west of
Ridgewood Avenue. Marvin
White, 51, veered into the
right side of the bus and was
pulled beneath it. It was a
shock to the bus driver, Nate
Flynt, and many aboard who
knew Mr. White, a familiar


figure on his bike in the area.
Votran officials said Mr. Flynt
has been with them for 27
years and had a spotless
record. There are cameras
aboard the bus that may
have captured the crash. The
tapes are being reviewed.
Following Votran policy, Mr.
Flynt is off his route with pay,
pending the outcome of the
investigation.

Innocent drivers hurt

Daytona Beach police said
a suspect in a stolen vehicle
who took off from a traffic
stop created a calamity on the
roads, leading to several
crashes and injuries. It all
ended when Michael Henry,
21, slammed a stolen white
SUV into another SUVwith a


family of three in it. Officers
were attempting to stop Mr.
Henry on George Engram
Boulevard, when he took off,
first slamming into a car with
an elderly man at the wheel.
He was seriously hurt. Police
said Mr. Henry then careened
through a school parking lot
and hit a parked car. Police
chief Mike Chitwood said his
officers were not chasing the
stolen vehicle, only attempt-
ing to stop it. He said the
blame lies with the suspect
driver who was reckless in his
efforts to get away from -
police. At least two innocent
drivers were taken to the
hospital. Police said the
suspect vehicle was actually
stolen in Jacksonville by a
man who traded it for drugs,
then called to report it stolen.
He is under arrest, too.

VIEWPOINT

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 26, 2008 * HOMETOWN NEWS * WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM


Got something to say?

Call the Hometown.Rants & Raves line at

or e-mail volnews@hometownnewsol.com.
Callers are asked to refrain from making slanderous

accuracy.


In response to 'Foreclosures and palm trees?
Say what?'

I agree with the writer of this rant that appeared in the
Dec. 12 edition.
I am a resident of Hunters Ridge and a retired Realtor.
Breakaway Trails and Hunters Ridge are 12-year-old-plus
communities. We are part of Ormond Beach and pay high
taxes, and there is not one bit of landscaping in the medi-
an strips on Granada west of Interstate 95, to say nothing
of the shameful exit from Interstate 95. And yet palm
trees adorn Nova Road in the "city."
As a Realtor, I always believed I was selling a communi-
ty, as well as a house. Go look at Port Orange. They know
how to do it.
Another eyesore in the heart of Ormond Beach on
Granada Boulevard between Nova Road and Clyde Morris
Boulevard is what must be the back of The Trails; it is full
'of weeds, vines and overgrowth. What's being done about
that? Is it the city's responsibility or The Trails?
I'm all for contacting our new city manager on these
issues.

In response to 'Police department com-
ments, complaints hard to do'

How much easier can the Daytona Beach Police
Department make it for someone to commend or most
likely complain about its officers or services?
Right in the middle of the Web page is a link for the pro-
cedure for filing a commendation or complaint, includ-
ing addresses and phone numbers to call during and after
hours. There is also an e-mail link right below that!
One phone call and I was provided with information on
the policy, including an additional e-mail address of the
supervisor of internal affairs:
"Allegations of employee misconduct, regardless of
nature, may be received from any source. This includes,
but is not limited to, in person, by mail, by telephone, via
electronic e-mail, from any governmental facility, a
department employee, or any other source."
The only policy the police department did not have?
How to save people from themselves.

In response to 'A few thoughts on the world'

First of all, I find it highly unlikely that Inlet Park in
Ponce Inlet was in the "condition" that you have
described. As a regular visitor to the park, with my dog,
who is very much a part of my family, I rarely see dog
feces on the boardwalk, the beach or in the water. What I
see on the boardwalk is mostly raccoon feces, which is
many times mistaken for dog feces by people who do
not own dogs. That is not to say that there is never any
dog feces on the boardwalk.
There are many irresponsible dog owners who visit all
of the parks. What you saw on the beach and in the
water is more than likely manatee feces. Manatees quite
often gather in the small cove in the river along the park
beach, and they poop in the water. And then the poop
washes up on the beach.
Just as a note, dogs are not permitted on the beach
north of the jetty. This park is well maintained by its
staff.
Dog fights happen. They can be prevented by respon-
sible dog owners, but again, irresponsibility occasional-
ly rears its ugly head. Just accept it as a part of life.
You will find yourself with very few, if any, parks to
visit in the area, as I believe dogs are permitted in most
all of them. Just visit the beaches, and your dog prob-
lems will be solved.
Now, about your cat: Cats that are allowed to go out-
doors and roam do an incredible amount of damage to
the songbird population. Even though you feed your cat
(even though it isn't a part of your family; it's just a cat) it
will still act upon it's instincts and hunt and kill birds.
Plus, they poop wherever they chose, mostly in yards
other than their own.
It is actually cheaper to keep your cat in the house.
You can save lots of money in vet bills because you won't
have to worry about what it will cost.you if your cat gets
hit by a car or attacked by a dog, owl or hawk, which can

happen.
But then again, since your cat is probably not part of
your family, you most likely wouldn't get it vet care any-
way.
And finally, the only people who will prosper under
Mr. Obama are those who are looking for a government
handout that they won't have to work for.

No guarantees

Has America lost sight of the things that made this
country the greatest on earth? We are unique in our free-
dom, liberty and opportunity, and yet, we appear to have
forgotten all of that and adopted a mentality of entitle-
ment rather than personal responsibility.
We now look to government to solve our problems
rather than to provide us the freedom to solve our own.
We seem to have accepted the mistaken idea that the
government guarantees us a certain measure of success
or wealth. Instead of freedom and opportunity, we hear
about class envy and social justice.
It appears we are sliding headlong into socialism,
which invariably drags everyone down to the lowest level
of achievement and economic standing because it can-
not raise every one up to the highest.
In a free system, we will always have those who rise
above others due to differing levels of ambition, motiva-
tion, desire, brains, virtue, self discipline, education, etc.
We will always have the poor due to tragic circum-
stances, poor choices, lack of motivation or education,
etc. But in a free system, we all are free to pursue what
we wish and make the most of opportunity. We are free
as well not to pursue or make the most of opportunity,
but at least we have the same freedom.
The key to making freedom work is taking personal
responsibility for our choices. We are free to make choic-
es, therefore, we must accept the responsibility for those
choices and not blame others. Everyone endures tragedy
in life. Everyone endures failures in life. Everyone
endures unexpected events and disappointments. Gov-
ernment can't fix those, and government can't give you
willpower, desire, self discipline or the ability to make
better choices. Government can give you a handout, but
it can't make you a success or guarantee your success,
and it was never intended to.
Lately, the government has tried to take on the impos-
sible task of guaranteeing success for AIG, Wall Street
and now the auto industry. Businesses fail. When they
are poorly run they should fail as a natural result.
Our government is now in the business of propping up
unsound businesses, which need to fail so they can go
back to the drawing board and start over using sound
business practices just as many of us will have to do.
So which path will we choose? Will we whine and com-
plain and look to the government for handouts or will we
accept personal responsibility and make a new plan and
move forward? Will we accept socialism as a perceived
quick fix or will we persevere and take advantage of our
freedom to succeed?
Time will soon tell.

Parkgoer pleased with changes
to Smyrna Dunes

I wanted to take the time to write about the New Smyr-
na Dunes Park.
Thank you, City of New Smyrna Beach and the new park
manager. The changes to the park in the past year are
amazing.
Besides the park being a much more peaceful place to
be, I have also noticed long awaited repairs finally being
done. One is the walkway onto the beach that has been
closed off for more than four years that is actually
repaired and can be used.
I noticed how clean the area is now, and that the park
manager is not hanging out on the benches inciting peo-
ple to complain.
Since the park received so much negative remarks last
year, I think it is time to give credit where credit is due.
So I say thank you that the dogs are still allowed and
thank you for what appears to be solving problems and
improving the park.

Citizen disappointed in poor service

Anyone who is looking for employment, I know where
you can get a job: the Social Security office. Obviously
they need people to answer their phones.
I called the office in Daytona Beach and was put on
hold, with an automated recording that kept coming on
telling me "Please hold; your call will be answered
momentarily." Well, they don't know the meaning of the
word "momentarily," which means in a few minutes. I was


on hold, with this annoying recording cutting in every few
minutes, for one solid hour! I finally gave up and hung up.
I then called the 800 number; their automated record-
ing told me that "hold time is estimated at over 10 min-
utes." At least they were being a little more honest, but not
much. I was routed, in a series of "say or select number "
to an automated "return my call" recording that told me if
I leave my name and phone number, they will call me
back when my turn comes up, and I will not loose my
place.
I thought, OK, great; I'll do that. So, this was on Wednes-
day, and I still have not gotten that return call. I can only
conclude that the Social Security offices are shorthanded
and in desperate need of phone operators.
I think I'll put in my application; anyone want to join
me?

Couple thankful for kind firefighters

I wish to take a minute to say how appreciative my hus-
band and I were last week when a knock on our door pro-
duced three young, handsome Ormond Beach firefighters
with smoke detectors and batteries in hand to either
check our detectors and change the batteries or supply us
with new ones if we were without.
In this time of tight finances and with all the negatives
that surround us daily, it was a pleasure to have this free
service by our city workers.
Thank you firemen and also the companies that sup-
plied the smoke detectors.

Man defends the right to be stylish

By my calculations, local and national government
powers that be are the same generation that stood up for
the right to express oneself freely.
I now understand that there truly is such a thing as the
fashion police. I am a little older than 50 and can't stand
to have my britches falling down, and I wouldn't walk
around with my legs spread apart like that to hold my
pants up unless I had a painful rash, but if I did, I certain-
ly wouldn't expect to be arrested or fined for that. I have
gone to many public places wearing my boxer shorts as if
they were just plain shorts and no one gave me a second
glance or even cared.
So why does this style that covers more skin than a
plumber wearing a tool belt make these ex-long hair, free-
loving hippies so irritated they have to become as bad if
not worse than the establishment they butted heads
against.
Now know this, Father Flanagan who created Boys Town
for orphans and wayward youth said it best: "There's no
such thing as a bad boy."
Shame on those who feel that teens enjoying a fad
should be treated as criminals.

In response to 'Scooter vs. Segway'

I am a resident of and a small business owner in New
Smyrna Beach, and maybe I can clear up some questions
about Segways.
As to why Segways are allowed on streets and side-
walks, see Section 316.268, which allows it to operate 25
miles per hour or less. They must yield the right of way
and make an audible sound when passing pedestrians.
In Section 316.003, the State of Florida does not define
a Segway as a motor vehicle, and a license is not required
to operate it.
By definition, the Segway is not a motorized vehicle;
therefore, it need not be tagged or registered.
The Segway's top speed is 12.5 miles per hour. Most
scooters I've seen can well exceed the speed limit on
most residential streets.
I personally own a Segway, and before I purchased it,
the dealer gave me a complete orientation, from how to
maintain the Segway and how to operate the Segway
safely with common courtesy in populated areas. I have
not seen this to be true with most scooter dealers.
Knowledge is power. Research Segways at Segway.com
and check state and local laws and city ordinances. I
hope this helps to ease your concerns.

The U.S. should be fair to all countries

The United States has been sending billions of taxpay-
ers' money to Israel every year for many years without
approval from the American people. Shouldn't we be
sending an equal amount to the Arabs just to level out
the playing field?
It might just be a major reason why the U.S. is in hot
water in that part of the world.
What does Israel give back to America for all of this
money? Isn't this a clear case of discrimination that the
government says this is illegal?

A resident's New Year's wish list for 2009


I wish that our city staff
continues their efforts to
become community rela-
tions experts and increase
the role of residents and
taxpayers in their decision
making.
I wish that that our Rede-
velopment Department
step forward as city plan-
ners and reduce its efforts
as real estate brokers.
I wish that the Citizens
Visioning Plan become the
number one criteria for
public policy and that for-
mal guidelines are devel-
oped to see that the Plan is
implemented.
I wish that efforts contin-
ue to insure accuracy and
transparency in all presen-


stations concerning the
budgeting and spending of
taxpayer money.
I wish that our future
economic universe will
include more that just
Main Street, the Board-
walk, and the Pier. Most of
our city is not located in
the Main Street Redevelop-
ment District.
I wish to commend the
Commission for instituting
our new Historic Preserva-
tion Ordinance and that
you will insist that its pro-
visions become a priority
in all of the CRA Districts.
I wish that when zoning
changes and other land use
changes are considered
that the strongest weight is

given to the quality of life
for all of our residents and
not just the economic ben-
efit of the few. Trickle-
down economics has
proven to be a failure.
I wish that even in these
difficult financial times,
that our city continue to
support cultural and
recreational programs with
the understanding that
these are vital to the social
and economic well being
of our residents and our
tourists.

uing education guidelines.
Certification by IACET
means that nurses, social
workers, recreation profes-
sionals, teachers and day
care providers can gain or
maintain their license or
certification by taking Red
Cross courses in various
subjects and obtaining
CEUs for them.
It also distinguishes the


American Red Cross from
other training providers.
Among the courses eligi-
ble for continuing educa-
tion credits are First Aid and
CPR/AED, life guarding and
water safety instructors,
safety training for swim
coaches and disaster
instructor specialty training.
These classes are being

American Red Cross.
Once training has been
completed, continuing edu-
cation units may be
obtained for a fee at

James Tucker
Week of 12-26-2008


Aries - March 21-April 19
Count your blessings for all
you have been given this
year. Gratitude and thankful-
ness make room for more to
be given. Your spirit is
stronger now. You refuse to
give up. Your tenacity is leg-
end. Make it a primary goal
in the New Year to find more
balance and strength. Start
strong, finish strong and vic-
tory is assured.

Taurus - April 20-May 20
Your No. 1 desire should be
to limit your activities to the
top two or three priorities
each day. This keeps you
focused and balanced. You
will get more done and
make everyone happy
around you. The lesser things
can wait. It also buys you
more time and happiness.
Putting first things first is the
formula of champions.

Gemini - May 21-June 21
The New Year ahead will be
one of your best yet. There
are so many dreams to
explore. Your strong, loving
nature will continue to bless
others around you. Your
power of communication
will continue to strengthen.
Your generosity and goodwill
bring your good back ten
fold. You have so much more
coming your way. Enjoy.

Cancer - June 22-July 22
Your strong spirit will serve
you well ,tint-hNew Year.
Your deep well o s rit will
be there when needed. You
have the determination to
keep going when faced with
challenges, deal with and
overcome. Make good writ-
ten plans and the commit-
ment will continue moving
you on and up toward your
eart's greatest desires.

Leo - July 23-Aug. 22
Being a leader has its ups
and downs. For you the ups
outweigh the downs. This
makes you a winner in the
game of life with the odds of
success in your favor. Contin-
ue to be open to change.
Sometimes unexpected
events require you to be flex-
ible. This is the key to posi-
tive results. You will continue
to prosper.

Virgo - Aug. 23-SeptL 22
You are at your best during
the holidays. The giving and
receiving, the sharing and
laughter and fun give you
great cheer. Your exchange

Remembering Mamma with a traditional cookie




Remembering Mamma with a traditional cookie


Hello smart shoppers.
Hope you had a
wonderful, blessed
Christmas and Hanukkah.
I'm writing this on Dec. 11;
how strange to write about
the New Year when we have
yet to have Christmas.
Let's ring in year 2009!
Here are a couple of New
Year's traditions.
Up north, eat a piece of
pickled herring at midnight
and touch a dollar bill.
Symbolically, may there
always be food on the table
and money in your pocket.
Here in the south, you
must eat pork and black-
eyed peas on NewYear's
Day.
I can remember New
Year's eve being a celebra-
tion where we made as
much noise as possible at
the stroke of midnight. I
have some noise makers
from my parents that date
back more than 70 years
(no cut fingers from sharp
metal, that's for sure).
To me, it's a capital sin to
be sleeping at midnight. I
used to wake my kids up
just to make noise. Silly?
Childish? Maybe so, but I
hope to never lose that


excitement.
Resolve to love one
another more. Don't think
there will always be tomor-
row. Sometimes tomorrow
never comes.
Today's column is a
tribute to Mamma, my
paternal grandmother.
For New Year's she made
cookies - not regular
cookies but special Italian
treats coated with honey
and topped with colored
candy sprinkles. Strufoli
(honey clusters) many of
you are familiar with, but
her other specialty is one I
bet you've never heard of.
Tordillo (hope the spelling's
right), made with olive oil
and wine, was everyone's
favorite.
When I finally decided to
make them, I kept hearing
Mamma saying, "You have
to feel when it's right." Back
my memory went to when I
was 17 and I remembered
Mamma. I asked for the
recipe and Mamma said in
her delightful Italian
accent, "You come over and
we do it together."
What I thought was going
to be very easy turned out
to be a bit of a fiasco when I


ROMANCING
THE STOVE -
with the
Grammy Guru u
ARLENE BORG

kept questioning Mamma's
instructions. Here's how it
went while making the
Tordillos.
Mamma: Dump flour on
the board.
Me: How much flour?
Mamma: This much, she
said as she pointed. Make a
hole in the center of the
flour and pour in 1 glass of
wine and 1/2 glass oil.
Me: What size glass?
Wouldn't you know I meant
how many ounces?
Mamma didn't. As her
voice started to rise she
held up the glass and
shouted "this size!"
"Now mix it all together
until it feels right," she said,
determined to go on.
At that point, I just
couldn't resist and asked,
"What does 'right' feel
like?"
Well, she threw her hands
up in desperation and said,
"Don't say another word.


You ask too many ques-
tions. Watch what I do and
DO it."
In most traditional
cooking, you have to feel
when it's right. I've taken
that feel and tried to put it
into measurements for you
in all the family recipes I
have given you. While
making these cookies, I
think I really learned what
right feels like.
Enjoy. See you next year.

TORDILLO (NIB)

The wine used for these
cookies was muscatel. If
you can't find it, use a
slightly sweet white wine or
a dry white wine, such as
chablis or Chardonnay,
mixed with 1 teaspoon of
sugar.

4 cups all purpose flour
1/2-cup extra virgin olive
oil, warmed slightly in
the
microwave
3/4-cup wine
Canola oil, enough to fill
a
medium saucepan
halfway


1 cup honey
1-1/2 tablespoons sugar
Multi-colored candy
sprinkles

Using the dough hook on
your electric mixer or a
food processor, mix first
three ingredients together.
Place dough on cutting
board and knead for about
5 minutes until smooth and
silky.
Break off small pieces of
dough and roll into a
cylinder about 1/2-inch
wide and 2-inches long.
Place a thumb (or three
fingers) in center of cylin-
der and press dough down
firmly as you push forward
then towards you, causing
the cylinder to curl and
look somewhat like a
seashell.
Fry cookies a few at a
time until golden. Drain on
paper towels.
In medium saucepan,
bring honey and sugar to a
boil, lower heat and
simmer for 5 minutes. Add
cookies a few at a time,
turn to coat. Remove to
platter with a slotted
spoon. Dust with sprinkles.
Note: These cookies can


be made, fried and stored
in an airtight container for
weeks. Glaze them the day
you're ready to serve.

I am available for talks
from south Vero to Stuart.

leave a message for me.
When a recipe is not in
my cookbook it will have
(NIB) next to the title.

American Safari Cruises: How close


would you like to get?


You might think that I
have a more of a penchant
for the small ship cruising
over other types, since
many of my recent columns
have touched upon the
various small ship cruise
lines.
However, it is the interest
of my clients that have me
researching and finding the
vacation that matches their
criteria. I just love doing this
type of research. I find
myself getting excited with
my finds.
Which brings me to my
latest find: American Safari
Cruises, a luxury yacht
experience that cruises the
wildlife-rich waters of the
Alaska, Pacific Northwest,
Columbia and Snake Rivers,
Mexico's Sea of Cortes and
the Hawaiian Islands.
I am seeing a bit of a trend
in those seeking smaller,
more intimate and adven-
turous cruise experiences.
Even in these times of
uncertainty, many of our
clients refuse to allow it to
keep them from traveling.
Some are traveling less with
more meaningful experi-
ences, while others choose
to continue with their travel
plans, as this is what they
worked their whole lives for.
I applaud their tenacity.
My clients wanted
something different. They
are a well-traveled couple,
love cruising and have
cruised many of the larger
ships. However, as they get
older, they feel they want to
try other experiences.
During our discussions
we touched on a few key
points of interest. They
wanted a more adventurous

trip, but were not keen on
giving up their comfort nor
their sense of taste for the
finer things that cruises
generally offer. This discus-
sion brought us to American
Safari Cruises and an Alaska
itinerary. They were excited
and so was I.
American Safari Cruises
has been in business since
1997. Their motto: luxury in
pursuit of adventure says it
all. ASC is comprised of four
vessels: the 36-guest Safari
Explorer, the 22-guest Safari
Quest, the 12-guest Safari
Spirit and the 12-guest
Safari Escape.
Each yacht offers a
unique experience in its
crew alone. Your itinerary
will set the course for the
experience, whether it is
whale watching in the cool
waters of Alaska or the
warm waters of the Sea of
Cortes, or taking in some
history following the route
of Lewis and Clark on the
Columbia and Snake Rivers.
Each itinerary gives an
up-close-and-personal
adventure by accessing

The FUTURES Foundation
plans to award mini-grants of
$100 to $1,500 to teachers
with innovative ideas for
inspiring students to explore
new topics. Teachers received
the funds and were recog-
nized Dec. 17 at a ceremony
at a local high school.
Teachers applied in Octo-
ber with the FUTURES Foun-
dation for funding. Last year,
grant recipient and fifth-
grade teacher Janet Gray's
project was called Native
Notes. Students studied
native flora and fauna,
designed cards with imprints
of plants then framed and
sold them at county events.
The mission of the Plum
Creek Foundation, a 24-year-
old organization comprised
of local businesses and civic
leaders, is to provide philan-
thropic contributions to sup-
port arid improve the general
welfare of life in the commu-
nities that Plum Creek serves.
The foundation board meets
quarterly to review applica-
tions submitted from organi-
zations in the company's
operating communities.

tion, visit the Web site

Plum Creek is the largest
and most geographically
diverse private landowner in
the nation, with more than 7
million acres of timberlands
in major timber producing
regions of the United States
and 10 wood products manu-
facturing facilities in the
northwest. Plum Creek owns


experts are locals, not tour
guides, and each adventure
has an on-board expedition
leader/naturalist.
The casual on-board
atmosphere, along with
excellent service, engaging
people and elegant sur-
roundings, allow for an
unforgettable voyage.
This is a true inclusive
experience. You can enjoy
kayaking, beach combing,
sailing, snorkeling or hiking.
Each yacht carries an
assortment of equipment
such as kayaks, mountain
bikes, laser sailboats and
water skis, inflatable skiffs
for "on the water" explo-
ration, rubber boots and
rain gear, insulated "Mus-
tang suits" for skiff excur-
sions to view glaciers up-
close, snorkeling gear, wet
suits and a multitude of
electronics to capture the
experience.
You can choose to take
part in the up-close expedi-
tions or stay aboard and
watch others, maybe hang
out with the captain or the
on board chef; they are all
.very accessible. Of course,
all meals are included as
well as premium wine, beer
and spirits.
You can choose to sail
with 11 other passengers or
36 passengers, depending
on your voyage. You want to
bring your family and
charter the entire yacht.
The private family cruises
feature customized itiner-
aries and activities, a kid-
friendly crew (when kids are
on board), private shore
excursions all at one
inclusive price.
This also works for private


group travel as well, those
who share a common
interest such as native
culture, diving, photogra-
phy, golf, wedding/honey-
moon and holiday cruises,
or just a bunch of friends
wanting to spend that time
together.
Some of the itineraries
include: Alaska Glacier Bay
National Park, adventurers'
fjords and bears, naturalists'
whale country, and the
famed Inside Passage. The
Hawaiian Islands form the
largest wildlife and marine
sanctuary, therefore the
Hawaiian seascapes
captures a glimpse of some
of the more than 7,000
marine species, exotic and
endangered animals. Whale
watching of the Humpback
whales off the Big Island
and Maui is only one of the
highlights.
The Gulf of California's
(also known as the Sea of
Cortes) itinerary takes you
along this 700-mile-long
arm of the Pacific Ocean
that separates the Baja
California peninsula from
Mexico's mainland. The
entire voyage takes place in
the biosphere reserve, an
internationally recognized
world heritage site, Which
consists of 244 islands, all
protected by a reserve that
creates a natural environ-
ment of striking beauty and
diversity.
ASC falls under the
categories of both small

If you were surprised to
receive fishing tackle as a
Christmas gift, you need
not feel alone. You were
certain that the heavy box
under the tree was a new
bowling ball, but when you
opened it and found a cast
net, it was difficult to muster
a smile.
Now you feel an obligation
to get out and use it, so you
go to the most remote pier
you can find so small
children won't make fun of
your ineptness. Your first
toss causes the thing to
tighten around your throat
like an enraged python, and
your face has gone from


scarlet to purple by the time
you are able to extricate
yourself.
What did I do wrong, you
ask? I've seen it done, and it
looks pretty easy. I can do
this!
One more try and the
heavy lead weights beat a
tattoo across your forehead,
leaving a row of nasty lumps.
That's it for the cast net; back
into the box and into the
darkest corner of the garage.
When your little girl asks
what happened to your
head, you mutter something
about wasps and get into
bed with an ice pack.
Perhaps your gift was a

DAN SMITH




shiny, new bait caster and
your benefactor was even
thoughtful enough to have it
spooled with mono. I'll just
tie on a lure and walk down
to the river and make a few
casts, you thought.
The first one went pretty
well, but you didn't get near
the distance you were
expecting, so on the next
one, you let go a mighty
heave. The bait plops down


100 feet out and brings a
smile to your face, which
soon turns to horror as you
see that the spool has
continued to turn and the
line has come off until it
resembles a pot of day-old
angel hair pasta.
At first you are determined
to untangle the mess, but
after the second hour, your
enthusiasm has waned
considerably and the new
fishing rod with the Little
Orphan Annie hair-do is
banished to the deepest
recesses of the hall closet.
Gift givers mean well. You
are a manly man and so you
must fish. Fact is, picking out


fishing equipment is hard
enough when the recipient is
a true fisherman. Fishing
tackle is a very personal
thing.
As a gift buyer, you were
probably intimidated just
going into the tackle shop,
with its walls full of dazzling
lures and contraptions.
Some are meant to catch fish
and more are meant to catch
shoppers.
The counter person tried
to be helpful, but you didn't
know what questions to ask.
You were as out of place as
this reporter is in Victoria's
Secret each Valentine's Day.
Still, we all give it our best


shot, with the result being a
sudden influx of new
fishermen following each
holiday season.
That rush only lasts about
two to three weeks, and
that's about how long I wait
before hitting the garage
sales. Five dollars is a good
price for a cast net or fishing
reel that was only used once!

Tee'd off golfers should take it to the ring and fight it out


This past week, a little
spat developed
between Steve
Williams, Tiger Woods'
caddie and Phil Mickelson,
one of Tiger's main rivals. It
seems that there is little love
lost between the world's No.
3 golfer and the looper for
the world's No. 1.
At a time when golf is
normally buried in the back
pages of the sports section,
this was great fodder for the
golf writers of the world.
How would Tiger handle
this? What would Phil have
to say? Would the two ever
speak again? And so on.
All of this speculation
stimulated the far recesses
of my diabolical mind.
What if we let the pair
decide the entire issue like
real men. Like cave men,
with sticks and rocks. OK,
we can't exactly have it that
way. But what if we put the
pair in the ring or octagon
and let them settle things?
Like any good title fight,
this event would only be
available via pay-per-view.
And as with every pay-per-
view event, there are under-
cards, tag-team events and
finally, the main event.
So start saving up your
S$39.95 and watch for an
announced date for the
"Silly Season Throw Down."
This could be serious fun for
all. Here is a taste to get you
ready.
In the night's first match,


the "Battle of the Light-
weights," Anthony Kim and
Mike Weir will square off.
Weir should have the upper
hand with his past hockey
experience. Kim however,
already has a title-size belt
and could easily use that to
bash the left-hander to the
mat.
Darren Clarke and Ian
Poulter will face off in the
"Battle of the Wild Hair"
with the winner taking on
Jesper Parnevik in a "pants
match."
Charles Howell III would
have joined this melee, but
the Pleasantville High
marching band broke into
his locker and stole their
band pants back.
In a true heavy weight
battle, John Daly will take
on Tim Herron. After
consuming a large number
of hot dogs, barbeque and
beer, the pair will don sumo
diapers and take to the ring.
We may move this event to
an earlier time to avoid
ruining most viewers'
dinners.
The night's first truly big
event is a battle royal
dubbed the "You Stole My
Major"match, with Greg
Norman taking out his
frustrations on Bob Tway,
Larry Mize, Jack Nicklaus,
Ray Floyd, Nick Faldo and a
host of others who snuck off
with the trophies Norman
nearly won.
Slowing things down a bit,


we'll next feature a senior
division match up. Chi Chi
Rodriguez will take on Ray
Floyd. While Floyd will try to
use his "stare" to take down
the much smaller Chi Chi,
the Puerto Rican will likely
unsheathe his infamous
sword and slay Floyd before
he has time to jump in his
Lexus and drive away.
The "Battle of the Prep-
pies" has Justin Leonard
taking on Fred Couples. In
this match we'll see plenty of
plaid Ashworth sweaters,
starched pastel polo shirts
and pleated Dockers flying
all over the place.
Not wanting to ignore the
ladies, Annika Sorenstam
and Michele Wei will have it
out in a "Cat Fight" match.
The world's greatest
female golfer has a lot of
frustration to lay out on the
teenage sensation.
Some tag-team action is
next. The "Irish Rovers",
Darren Clarke and Padraig
Harrington take on "The
Who?" team of Todd Hamil-
ton and Shaun Micheel, in a
battle of a guy who has won
three majors along with one
who should have, versus two


guys who shouldn't have.
After downing a few pints to
numb them from pain the
Irish boys should stomp a
mud hole in the two Ameri-
cans.
More tag team action pits
the "British Bad Boys" of
Paul Casey and Luke
Donald against the "Thun-
der from Down Under"
team of Stuart Appleby and
Robert Allenby.
After the excitement of the
previous match, the crowd
may boo and whistle at the


match between Rory
Sabatini and Pat Perez. This
bout could turn out to be a
huge disappointment if the
pair simply swears and
throws clubs and insults at
one another.
The night will end with
the main event. A tag-team
"You called me a What?!"
battle featuring Tiger Woods
and Steve Williams taking on
Phil Mickelson and Bones
McKay.
We could see all kinds of
props in this event, includ-


ing Tiger's crutches, several
cameras and a quart of
Valvoline oil. Look for
Mickelson to grab Frank,
Tiger's trusty head cover,
and stuff it over Williams'
head.
I hope that you enjoy this
special pay-per-view event.
If it's popular enough, we'll
throw in a "Summer Grand
Slam" event as well. Start
saving now!

Minor league
football team
has successful
inaugural season

The Daytona Beach Wild-
cats minor league football
team started its inaugural
season and is members of
the Florida Football
Alliance.
The Wildcats are owned
by a local family of commu-

championship football to
the area that provides addi-
tional avenues of success
and development for talent-
ed young men.

Daytona Beach police officer,
was a three-sport athlete at
Mainland High School. He
began his coaching career in

age level and eventually serv-
ing as league president. His
last coaching stint was at
Warner Christian Academy.

son. Their first win came in
Leesburg against the Orange
County Falcons, the defend-

Next, the Wildcats defeated
the Tampa Bay Bulldogs 34-6
on Nov. 15 in Tampa.
On Dec. 13, the Central
Florida Thoroughbreds rode
into The Wildcat Jungle at
Derbyshire Complex. The
Thoroughbreds entered the
contest with a 30-3 record in
the past three years. However,
The Wildcats beat the Thor-
oughbreds 20-8.


The Wildcats traveled to
Savannah, Ga., on Dec. 20 to
face off with The Savannah
Warriors, another SEFL team.
This was The Wildcats' fourth
and final preseason game. ,
The Wildcats will open the
2009 season on Jan. 10 at
Municipal Stadium in Day-
tona Beach.

It's that time of year: Party hearty, but party safe


It's a party time of year
and nobody wants to be
the party-pooper who
reminds everyone that
drinking and driving don't
mix.
I'm happy to be the
designated messenger for
this party-season: drinking
and driving don't mix and
there are many ways to
have a great holiday party
without putting yourself or
your loved ones at risk.
Mothers Against Drunk
Driving offers tips for hosts
and partygoers to avoid
becoming statistics during
the holiday season. You can
find their "Have a Ball,
Baby!" safe party guide at
the MADD Web site,
www. madd.org/programs.
If you still have doubts
about the dangers of
drinking and driving, and
feel that the holiday time is
different and you can relax
the rules, MADD offers the
following sobering statis-
tics:
In 2006, 17,602 people
were killed in alcohol-
related crashes, which is an
average of one every 30
minutes.
Alcohol-related deaths


account for nearly 41
percent of all traffic fatali-
ties.
Many more people are
seriously maimed and
injured in alcohol-related
accidents.
If you are having a
holiday party, and this
includes barbeques and
tailgate parties as well as
traditional holiday events,
there are things you need to
know to keep your party
safe. This is not only being
a good, responsible host. If
you serve liquor, you may
be liable for accidents
caused by your guests.
Donald Murray, MADD
Florida executive director,
said that this message
cannot be overstated.
"We encourage those
who are going to host a
party to be responsible
hosts and do all they can to
ensure that their guests
don't drink and drive.


Guests should make plans
well in advance for a
designated driver, taxi or
alternate means of trans-
portation.
"Further, hosts should
understand that they can
be held legally responsible
for crashes occurring as a
result of driving under the
influence that occurred as a
result of alcohol provided
by the host," he said.
The following dos and
don't are taken from the
MADD Web site. For
information on volunteer-
ing or joining one of the 25
chapters in Florida, go to
www. madd.org/fl.
If you are the victim of a
drunk driver, call the toll
free hotline at (800) 772-
6233.
If you are a host, here's
what you need to do:
*Have a "bartender" who
can keep track of how
much someone is drinking.
Never allow drinks to be
served to minors. Remem-
ber that a 12 oz, can of beer,
a 5 oz. glass of wine and an
ounce and a half of "hard"
liquor contain the same
amount of alcohol.
*Stay within your own


drinking limits so that you
can keep an eye on your
guests.
*Do offer non-alcoholic
alternatives, and if a guest
is drinking too much, offer
to freshen up their drink
with a non-alcoholic
version.
*Close the bar 90 minutes
before the party ends and
serve dessert and coffee.
Coffee will not sober
someone up; only time will
do that. It takes about an
hour to oxidize each drink.
*Offer lots of high protein
foods such as cheese, deli
meats and shrimp so guests
don't drink on an empty
stomach.
*Get your guests talking
or playing games. Have an
amateur fortune teller.
When people are busy, they
drink less.
*If you're serving an
alcoholic punch, use a non-
carbonated base, such as
fruit juice. Alcohol is
absorbed more quickly into
the bloodstream with a
carbonated base.
*Have a plan if a guest
has had too much to drink.
Arrange a ride, call a taxi or
ask them to spend the


night.
If you're a guest, you're
not off the hook:
*Know your limits.
elf you're with a group,
arrange in advance who
will be the designated
driver.
*Don't arrive on an empty
stomach and eat through-
out the evening. Remem-
ber that salty snacks make
you thirsty; if you need
something to quench your
thirst, choose a non-
alcoholic alternative.
*Remember that you are
ultimately responsible for
your behavior. Don't put
your host on the spot by
drinking too much.
Have fun, have a great
holiday, and don't let a
lapse in judgment and good
sense turn into a tragedy.
That's not how you want to
remember this holiday
season.
