The Year in Review for Melbourne


A year of challenges, victories and
contention for Melbourne, West Melbourne

Charles Dickens said in A Tale of
Two Cities, "It was the best of times,
it was the worst of times."
Had Mr. Dickens lived in modern
Melbourne or West Melbourne, he
might have added "...and it was
never boring."

and photographer Paul Lepinskie
documented a flight of the training
aircraft, which simulates the zero

Sixty teachers - 16 of those from

tinues an uphill struggle against
rejection votes. The Fee Avenue
non-profit has been searching for a
new home so administrators can
expand their facilities. Melbourne
Mayor Harry Goode had been
working closely with Daily Bread
director John Farrell since the char-
ity's request for zoning changes was
denied in May.
They had settled on a possible
2.3-acre site on Apollo Boulevard
within Melbourne International


Airport property, but
a legal opinion and
comments rendered
by the Federal Avia-
tion Administration
nixed the plan.
The charity later
appeared before
the Melbourne
City Council to
rehear its request . '
for zoning
changes, but the council
decided to kill the option to rehear
the request.
The charity, which serves meals
to the poor and homeless once a
day and offers clothes and other
donated goods, vowed to construct
a second building at their current
site.

MELBOURNE - It is

City hires lobbyist for


$25,000 for 'at least


five months' service

Move comes after council
questions expenditures, overtime


By David Kearns
dkearns@hometownnewsol.com
WEST MELBOURNE -
Do you want to know which
businesses will likely sur-
vive an economic recession?
It might just be the lobby-
ing firms.
In a vote Dec. 16,.the West
Melbourne City. Council
hired a lobbyist for $25,000.
The new proposal for
services was a late addition
to the agenda. It stated the
.firm will represent the city
for the five-month period
from January until the end
of June, 2009; representing a
rate of pay at $5,000 per
month. No expenses added.
Despite the cost, council
members, with Deputy
Mayor John D'Amico still
absent, and Councilman
Mike Hazlett also absent,
but speaker-phoning in his
participation, voted 6-0 to
hire Tallahassee lobbyist
David E. Ramba and his
firm, Lewis Longman and
Walker, PA, to represent the
city over the next legislative
cycle.
The move came after the
council earlier discussed
wasteful expenditures, such
as a reported $51,000 in


overtime billed by city
employees within the last
three months.
This underscores how
important the council feels
a professional lobbyist
working on behalf of the city
of West Melbourne could be
over the next year.
Mr. Ramba had been con-
tacted by a former aid to
State Sen. Mike Haridopo-
los, (R-Melbourne) who had
been -called by Council-
woman Stephany Eley fol-
lowing the Dec. 2 City Coun-
cil meeting, Ms. Eley said.
Ms. Eley told the former
aid that West Melbourne
needed another choice to
consider. The aid had a
name in mind, Ms. Eley
said.
During the previous
meeting, the City Council
received presentations from
the lobbying firms of Eligere
Strategies, LLC, with former
State Rep. Mitch Needel-
man, as a paid consultant,
as well as Dixie Sansom of
Cocoa. Ms. Sansom is mar-
ried'to Melbourne lobbyist
Jerry Sansom.

Stylist cuts out competition with family-owned salon


By Tammy Roberts
Roberts@hometownnewsol.com
After 18 years of working
as a hair stylist, Melbourne
resident Portia Curtis
dreamed of branching out
and opening a salon of her
own.
With the help of her
mother and business part-
ner, Sheila King, Ms. Curtis'
lifelong dream finally
became a reality.
Ms. Curtis grew up in Bre-
vard County, but spent most
of her adult life living in
Killeen, Texas. A death in the
family last September
brought Ms. Curtis home to
the Space Coast, where she
was able to be closer to her
mother and share in a new
business venture as co-
owner of Cost Cutters Fami-
ly Salon in Indian Harbour
Beach.
"It was really a win-win,"
Ms. Curtis said. "My mom
really wanted to invest in a
business and knew that


opening a salon was some-
thing I've wanted to do for a
long, long time."
A division of the Regis
Corporation, Cost Cutters is
a national franchise with
more than 850 locations
throughout the United
States, according to the
salon's Web site, www.cost-
cutters.com.
From traditional to trendy,
the salon offers services
including cuts, color, perms
and waxing for every mem-
ber of the family. Cost Cut-
ters also provides up-dos
and styling for special
events such as high school
prom and weddings.
"I really liked the fact that
Cost Cutters had such a vari-
ety of services for its cus-
tomers," Ms. Curtis said. "I
was also drawn to the com-
pany's philosophy that the
customer comes first. It's
about keeping them looking
and feeling good, and I
wanted to do exactly that."
'After the success of their


first salon in the beachside
area, which opened May 17,
the mother-daughter team
decided to open another
location in Melbourne.
"It's really a prime loca-
tion, here on a busy road
and right near Brevard Com-
munity College," Ms. Curtis
said.
The salon, located in a
new business plaza on
North Wickham Road, cele-
brated its grand opening
Oct. 9 with discounted serv-
ices and prize giveaways.
There are currently seven
stylists on staff at the Mel-
bourne location and anoth-
er five at the beachside
salon.
"We are very reasonably
priced and our customer
service really sets us apart
from the competition," Ms.
Curtis said. "During train-
ing, one of the main things
we focus on is listening
and understanding what
exactly a customer is ask-
ing for. That is something


that is so important, but
you don't find at every
salon."
In the near' future, .Ms.
Curtis plans to open
another Cost Cutters loca-
tion in the Palm Bay area,
which has kept her busy
during the past few


months.
When she's not operating
her two salons and plan-
ning for another, you can
find Ms.. Curtis at the
movies, traveling or at
home relaxing with her
English bulldog, Ruby.
"I wanted to create an
atmosphere at these salons
where stylists can feel
comfortable and appreci-
ated for what they do," Ms.
Curtis said. "That is exactly
what we have done here."

Jennifer Clendenin, Pamela

Top 10 Brevard County stories of 2008


Staff Report
A tropical storm that caused
more damage than some hur-
ricanes, the arrival of a major
airplane manufacturer and
the school district superin-
tendent announcing his
retirement were some of the
major events in Brevard Coun-
ty in 2008.
Here are the top 10 county
stories of the year:
10) County manager's job
in jeopardy
County manager Peggy
Busacca's job is on the line fol-
lowing the Brevard County
Commission's Nov. 25 meet-
ing.
District 3 Commissioner
Trudie Infantini made a bold
move to call for the manager's
ouster in her first meeting fol-
lowing the election. Commis-
sioners are scheduled to dis-
cuss this at their Jan. 27 regular
meeting.
9) Former county chief
deputy property appraiser
charged with official miscon-
duct
After a 19-month Florida
Department of Law Enforce-
ment investigation revealed
seven properties had been
devalued by the county Prop-


erty Appraiser's Office, former
chief deputy officer Lance E.
Larsen was charged with one
count of grand theft and seven
counts of official misconduct.
8) Changes to election pro-
cedures
Fewer candidates appeared
on the general election ballot
due to changes in primary
election procedures. This year,
if more than one third-party
candidate ran for a constitu-
tionally created county office,
they had to hold a primary
election.
7) County, cities move for-
ward on St. Johns Heritage
Parkway project
County, Melbourne and
Palm Bay officials agree to
work together on pursuing
federal'money to help pay for
the proposed parkway, which
would run west of Interstate
95, Palm Bay and a portion.of
Melbourne and include two
new interstate interchanges.
6) Three new members join
county commission
Voters Nov. 4 chose three
new members of the county
commission: Andy Anderson,
Trudie Infantini and Robin
Fisher. They replaced Jackie
Colon, Helen Voltz and 20-


year commissioner Truman
Scarborough.
5) Community mourns
Area I superintendent
Tom Mcintyre, a 30-year
veteran with Brevard Public
Schools, diedAug. 13 after bat-
tling cancer. Mr. McIntyre was
responsible for the adminis-
tration and supervision of 24
schools and more than 22,000
students in the South Brevard
area.
4) NASA celebrates 50th
anniversary
For more than 50 years, the
men and women of Brevard
County have been instrumen-
tal in the success of the space
program.
In the midst of apprehen-
sions about job losses at
Kennedy Space Center, NASA
celebrated its 50th anniver-
sary. In July of 1958, President
Dwight D. Eisenhower signed
the National Aeronautics and
Space Act. On Oct. 1, 1958,
NASA opened its doors.
3) School superintendent
announces retirement
After nearly four decades in
education and nine years in
his current position, Brevard
Public Schools Superinten-
dent Richard DiPatri


announced in October that he
would not pursue the exten-
sion of his contract, scheduled
to expire June 30, 2009, citing
personal reasons.
2) Airplane builder comes
to Melbourne
Brazilian airplane manufac-
turer Embraer (Empressa
Brasileira de Aeronautica)
announced in May it would be
bringing 200 high-paying
engineering jobs to Mel-
bourne following several
incentives for luring them to
Brevard County and the Har-
bor City.
The company, which is the
world's largest manufacturer
of jets with fewer than 120
seats, broke ground on its new
facility at Melbourne Interna-
tional Airport Dec. 4. Gov.
Charlie Crist, along with other
state and local representa-
tives, was in attendance.
1) Tropical Storm Fay
sweeps through the Space
Coast
Record rainfall, flooded
streets, damaged homes and
overflowing sewage lines
result in a slew of sanitation
and health concerns following
the storm's three-day visit in
August.

Too many holiday calories? Take a hike!


By Tony Judnich
Judnich@hometownnewsol.com
MELBOURNE BEACH - The folks
at the Barrier Island Sanctuary Man-
agement and Education Center have
a suggestion on how to burn off those
holiday calories.
At 1 p.m. Friday, Dec. 26, they are
offering a free, guided hike through a
portion of the center's 34-acre prop-
erty, which is situated between the
ocean and the Indian River Lagoon.
The center opened last May and is
managed by Brevard County's Envi-
ronmentally Endangered Lands Pro-
gram.
After departing from the center,
hikers first will see shore birds, pal-
metto plants and sea grapes on and
near the beach, said Nichole Perna,
assistant land manager for the south
beach region of the EEL Program.
Continuing along the center's one-


mile-long loop trail west of State
Road A1A, hikers will pass by the
lagoon and might see giant land
crabs, pelicans and dolphins, she
said.
"The hike will probably last about
an hour or an hour-and-a-half,
depending on how long people stop
to see the animals and plants," Mrs.
Perna said.
She said officials decided to offer
the hike after they saw a good turnout
of hikers after Thanksgiving.
"Much of this sanctuary was heavi-
ly impacted by non-native plant
species such as Brazilian pepper and
Australian pine trees in recent years,",
according to the Web site www.barri-
erislandcenter.com.
"Now, with the majority of exotic
plant species removed, native habi-
tats such as cabbage palm hammock
and maritime hammock, salt marsh
and mangrove swamp are regaining a


foothold and are viewable along the
trail."
The 5,700-square-foot center over-
looks the ocean. Inside the building,
visitors can view environmental
exhibits and videos and occasionally
hear talks by scientists about the bar-
rier island's habitats and wildlife,
including sea turtles that nest on the
beaches.
Visitors also can enjoy the center's
observation deck and gift shop, or set
off paddling from a kayak laundch-ot
the lagoon.
The center is at 8385 S. AIA in.Mel-
bourne Beach, 1.5 miles north of
Sebastian Inlet and within the Archie
Carr National Wildlife Refuge.
It is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Tuesday through Sunday. The loop
trail is open from sunrise to sunset
year-round.

WHAT HOMEOWNERS' POLICIES DON'T COVER


If a flood, earthquake, or a leaking
municipal pipe in your basement
were to damage your home. would
your homeowners insurance cover
it? If you said "yes," you would be
wrong. You also would have a lot of
company- According to a survey of
homeowners conducted by the
National Association of Insurance
Commissioners, one third of the
people surveyed thought their
homeowners policy covered flood
insurance. Slightly over half of the
respondents thought they would be
covered in the event that Water lines
broke, and more than a third felt
assured that coverage would be-
offered for earthquake damage. The
fact is that 90% of natural disasters
are accompanied by some form of
flooding for which homeowners
must pursue coverage. Have you
covered all the bases necessary so
that your home is properly insured?-
Does your current homeowner's,
:>-.* *', '1k i'tis . , .. .


Insurance cover you adequately? We
would be very pleased if you place
your trust and business with us.
Insurance is a complex business.
That's nh\ we take very seriously
our professional responsibility to,
help you make the insurance
decisions that are right for you - not
offering you a one-size-fits-all
policy. IWe're ,located-at 376Q W;
Eau Gallic Blvd., Ste. 104, wherq
we are committed to demonstrating

Facility dog serves as stress reliever at community college


By Tammy Roberts
Roberts@hometownnewsol.com
When the stress level gets
too high at a local college
campus, students and faculty
alike turn to the comfort of
one friendly - and furry
-friead.
A 6-year-old yellow
Labrador retriever, Kat serves
as a facility dog on the Palm
Bay campus of Brevard Com-
munity College.
"Due to budget constrains,
we do not have an on-campus
psychologist at BCC," said
Lynn Dallas, disability servic-
es specialist at the college's
Palm Bay campus. "Kat is our
next best thing. She's our little
four-legged therapist."
Kat visits with as many as 90
students a day inside the
Office for Students with Dis-
abilities.
During exams or periods of
high stress, the students, who
have a wide range of emotion-
al, mental and physical dis-


abilities, can take a break and
spend some time visiting with
Kat.
"We've had students who
had to leave class because of a
manic episode or who had a
tragedy occur in their family,"
Ms. Dallas said. '"After about a
half-hour of petting Kat, they
were able to calm down and
face the issue at hand."
While her-main purpose is
stress relief for students with
disabilities, Kat has helped so
many more in the past four
years.
'"After the hurricanes of
2004, we had an instructor
just come in here and spend
an hour with Kat," Ms. Dallas
said. "She really helped to life
his spirits. He had lost almost
everything."
But one of Kat's favorite
things to do each day is greet
all of her friends on campus
on the way to get the mail,
which she, of course, likes to
carry in her mouth.
"No one has any idea who I


am, but they know Kat," Ms.
Dallas joked. "We can't move,
on until she says hi to every-
body. It takes me 45 minutes
to get the mail."
A Palm Bay resident, Ms.
Dallas began her tenure at the
college in 1990, serving as a
math tutor.
In 1995, she was hired as the
disability services specialist in
the Office for Students with
Disabilities. A few years later,
Ms. Dallas got word that a fel-
low disability services special-
ist was working to bring a
facility dog to the college's
Cocoa campus, but was
unsuccessful.
After being denied the
request on her first attempt,
Ms. Dallas gathered more
information and tried again.
"The biggest problem they
had was that the dog would
bite a student," Ms. Dallas
said. "Each dog in the canine
companions program has a
$1 million insurance policy. I
told them that there was a
better chance of me biting
them than the dog."
Ms. Dallas' idea eventually
gained the support of the col-
lege's administration, but was
put on the backburner after
Sept. 11 hit.
In May 2004, Ms. Dallas got
approval to move ahead with
the program and sent out the
necessary applications to the
Canine Companions for Inde-
pendence Training organiza-
tion in Orlando.
When the companion dogs
reach approximately 15
months in age, they each
must complete a six- to nine-
month training course that
enables them to be a personal
service dog, skilled compan-
ion dog, hearing dog or facility
dog.

stressed. .
During a faculty meeting a
few years ago, Kat greeted
everyone, but kept going
back to one instructor and
nuzzling her nose on her lap.
When Ms. Dallas pointed
out the fact that Kat could
sense a person's stress level,
the instructor broke down
and said that she was under
a lot of stress because one of
her family members had
recently died.
"She's an amazing dog,"
Ms. Dallas said. "Not many
people get the chance to
bring their best friend with
them to work. People just
love her, and she does her
best to comfort and console
them."
Ms. Dallas and her four-
legged friend were recog-
nized for their efforts by the
state of Florida at the 59th
annual Florida Association
of Community Colleges
Convention in Orlando Nov.
20.
The team beat six other
finalists from throughout
the state to Ain the 2008


Career and Professional
Employee Commission
Exemplary Practice Award,
recognizing Kat's role on
campus as an "innovative
idea."
"We are very proud of Ms.
Dallas and her loveable dog,
Kat; they make a'great team,"
said Stephanie Lubno, FACC
president for. Brevard Com-
munity College. "Their suc-
cess in helping students with
different abilities through
canine companionship is a
model for other schools to
emulate."
When the team is not on
campus, they can be found
at one of the local dog parks,
visiting with friends, or going
for walks around the block.
"She loves people," Ms.
Dallas said. "If she doesn't
see a lot of people in a while
she starts to get really antsy.
She needs them as much as
they need her."

For free works fine

To all you people who obviously feel no current financial
crunch and are ready to step up to the newest status symbol
of being well-off enough to just throw out your perfectly
good analog color TVs, please put a "for free, works fine"
sign on them, if they do, so that they can be picked up, used
and enjoyed by someone who finds the current recession
too much to be going out and buying a new flat-screened
TV. You can still get the same status for being financially
able to just throw out a perfectly good color TV and you will
relieve the landfill overflow with your unnecessary elec-
tronic discards.
In the next few months, there are going to be thousands
of TVs thrown out by the side of the road. What a colossal
waste. Why dornt you try to recycle them the right way, the
way they were meant to used? As TVs. They can be used to
play video games or to watch movies. They're not dead. But
they are certainly going to fill up our land.

Why 'holy day' celebration?

I understand that the agnostics, atheists and freethinkers
meet to discuss their ideas of "no God" or no other higher
power. However, to be fair, I don't know what they discuss
because I have never attended their group. I do think it is
ironic that they meet on Sunday, the day God ordained as
His day and a day of rest. Add to this the fact that they are
now planning a "holiday celebration" and I think you have
opened a very wiggly can of worms.
My own religious beliefs have changed during my lifetime
of nearly 60 years. I have believed in my God since I was a
child and still do, to this day. I was raised a Christian and
baptized in the Christian faith. I attended a Christian
church for most of my life and, while I still believe in Jesus
Christ, and other spiritual prophets, I now choose not to
"worship" Jesus. I "worship" God. I pray to God. I ask God
for guidance and to reveal His will for me. I converse with
God daily. I now adhere to the Old Testament, where God
told us He was a jealous god and we should-'not worship
false idols. I am not saying that Jesus, or any other religious
leader, for that matter, are false idols. Iam merely saying
that I choose to worship my Creator, and my Creator is God.
With that being said, I find that several days during this
season give glory to ,God and those are called, by their
respective faiths and followers, "holidays," or "holy days."
Those of us who believe in.the spirit, no matter*who we
worship, agree on the celebration of the power greater than
ourselves during this season.
If the agnostics, atheists and freethinkers do not believe
in a higher power, what are they celebrating? I am sure that
a few of those freethinkers will respond to this question and
their answers will show up here in this column. I hope so.

No more headhunters

When previous superintendent of schools Mr. David
Sawyer was leaving, the board went to a national search to
find a replacement. It advertised in national publications
and ended up hiring a national headhunter.
School administrators interested in moving place their
resumes with these companies. When a school district is
searching for a superintendent and hires one of these com-
panies, the company "matches" their file of resumes with
the needs of the school district. In our case, the company
sent four prospects and charged (a high fee.) We paid
expenses to bring each candidate to, Brevard for an inter-
view.
Three dropped out leaving Mr. DiPatri. The board had a
choice: pay another (fee) or take Mr. DiPatri. He was not the
first choice, but the board didn't want to pay again.
This process is controlled by the headhunter company,
and they choose superintendents. I often wondered if the
other three were interested in Brevard?
I don't know how this board is thinking, but we don't need
d repeat.
Education is big business, and with a $1 billion a year
budget, we don't need an educator, but a businessman. The
department assistant superintendents can handle the
classrooms and correspondence.
The candidate we were leaning toward when Mr. Sawyer
left was retired military. School boards nationally are hiring
more and more retired military. Brevard has many retired
Air Force and there should be good choices.

Tired of Casey

I don't know about most people out there, but I'm getting
sick and tired of hearing about Casey Anthony, the wacko,
and how she's treating this whole thing as her private circus.
She's got the news media - idiots - jumping through hoops
every time she opens up her mouth. How stupid can the law
be in this state when they let this crap go on for so long?
Let's put a stop to her lying crap and give her what she needs
'- a good strong dose of truth serum - and finally put all this
to rest. She's carried this on far too long. It's time the law in
this state wised up and did the right thing.

Answer to 'Don't knock'

I appreciate the opportunity to respond to this corre-
spondence. I believe it will be of value to people who have
similar thoughts. As an active Jehovah's Witness for 46
years, I feel that I am qualified to respond on this issue.
You mentioned that you have a sign saying: "No Solicit-
ing" and'have been told' "I'm not selling anything." While
this response is accurate, we find that there are people, like
yourself, who really mean, "We are not interested in Jeho-
vah's Witnesses and their message." That is certainly your
right and we would not knowingly call at your door if we
knew how you felt. Unfortunately, we live in a very tran-
sindet area. (Residents) change. One time, one family lives
in a location, then the next time we come through, some-
one else lives there.
There is a very simple solution, one that will permanent-
ly solve your problem and you yourself made it. Just take
either one or two simple steps. One, put a sign on your
door saying simply that you are not interested in any liter-
ature, etc., from Jehovah's Witnesses.
i4., In addition, all the congregations in Brevard county are
located in the phone book. Look for an address close to
you and call that number and let the minister know your
feelings. He will make note of your wishes and take steps
to put you on the list of those who do not want to be con-
tacted by Jehovah's Witnesses. ,
It would help that you give us your phone number,
because once a year, we call on those who have made this
request to verify that this is still (their) wish and to see if
someone else lives at this address.
I apologize for the oil in your driveway; that was incon-
siderate. However, I feel certain that if the person who
called at your door that day knew 'about it, they would
have taken steps to clean it up before they left. Please give
us the benefit of the doubt.
One last thought. Jehovah's Witnesses are:not uneducat-
ed; we can read a clearly worded sign, as I pointed out ear-
lier, but you leave the door open when you say, "No solici-
tors" instead of what you really mean - "No Jehovah's
Witnesses." Also, if you ride around and compare our
Kingdom Halls to the other churches in the area, you will
find that they are quite modest, both outside and inside
,compared to other places of worship.
I hope this will help all those who sympathize with the
reader. This a simple, permanent solution to their prob-
lem.

Response to 'Obama questions'

This writer is months too late. Any and all of these ques-
tions have been answered, dissected, discussed, proven,
etc. Some of these questions obviously sound like they are
coming from a sore loser and are ludicrous and unreason-
able.
(President-elect) Obama has been through and survived
the lies, the rumors, the gossip, smears, etc.
He won, the other guy lost, get over it and spare us ques-
tions that have already been answered. Let's all concen-
trate on political peace and uniting our country.
I Note to the editor: I must say that I am highly disap-
pointed that you would print information that is untrue
and you have not checked out the sources. What was his
name before he changed it? He was a Muslim? As an edi-
tor, I am sure you know how to verify information. (Mr.)
Obama's birth certificate says Barrack Hussein Obama; it
was shown and proved by the Hawaiian government.
Because (Mr.) Obama had a parent who was Muslim, does
not make him Muslim, nor does it make him Muslim if he
attended a school (for a short time) that teaches Muslim in
addition to other religions. He has admitted and it has
been proven that he has attended and followed the Christ-
ian church and beliefs for very many years. He is not Mus-
lim.

Buy from church bazaars

I went to a big craft show at Fort Christmas in Christmas
over the weekend. I saw (a) sign (that read) "Made in the
U.S., lead free." It made me think of how much is made
overseas. Thousands attended and did their Christmas
shopping, buying U.S.-made because one of the require-
ments of vendors is "hand-made only."
Between now and Christmas, many churches have craft
shows. You can buy U.S. and at the same time help church-
es.

Marriage is about love

This is in regard to the rant about gay marriage where the
reader asked if two women can produce children without
outside help or two men produce a child without a woman.
It's a ridiculous statement because we all know the answer is
no. However, can two men who love each other and live
together and do everything that heterosexuals do, such as
pay taxes, support the community, vote and have meaning-
ful jobs and lives, be denied the same rights as other pro-
ductive members of society? Apparently they can and they
do because bigots like you exst. You state that,the purpose
of a "normal marriage" is to produce children normally and
legally. How do single parents fit in? What about people who
marry and decide theydon't want any children? What hap-
pens to children born out of wedlock? What about the man,
or woman, who strays from the marriage to commit adul-
tery? Two gay men or women are not wanting to get married
because they want to have children. They want to get mar-
ried because they love each other. It's silly, isn't it? But until
1967, some couples couldn't marry because one was white
and one was black. I guess that was silly, too.
Some churches today will not marry any couple where
one is Protestant and one is Catholic. Or perhaps a Jew and
a Muslim. Gays don't care if the church won't marry them.
We are not asking for gays to be married in your rcurch. We
are simply asking for the same legal protections afforded
heterosexual couples. There is nothing abnormal about
who you happen to fall in love with. There is only abnormal
thinking by narrow-minded and bigoted people.
With a nearly 50 "percent divorce rate in this country,
those are the people to worry about, not the gays who love
each other and want the same thing as everyone else.

Obama sold out

(President-elect) Obama sold his voters Out to The Sys-
tem. His cabinet is a hodge-podge of his enemies and cor-
rupt Washington power-brokers. Where is this "change" he
promised? My understanding of his campaign promises was
we would seewould see all new faces in Washington, that he would
clean house and start fresh. His cabinet, with a few excep-
tions, is an all-star team of the worst of the worst, all hell-
bent on destroying each other's credibility. It's going to be a
catastrophe of epic proportions.

Florida lottery is rigged

Anyone who follows Florida Lotto knows by now it is
rigged. At every drawing there are two consecutive numbers
in the pick. Months on end, twice a week. Has no one
noticed this? Statistically speaking, this is impossible. It is
not impossible to happen (that numbers 45 and 46 are
drawn), every so often or even every other week. But twice a
week, over and over again? Something smells mightily amiss
with the Florida Lotto. Once again, something we thought
was a good idea has been turned into a system to allow
venality and corruption. (It is) ironic that the Lotto is sup-
posed to support education. They don't want us to get too
smart, children. After all, we might learn statistics and prob-
ability.

I feel bad for prez

I just heard a news cast where Laura Bush said (she and
her husband) were saving their money for a new home. My
heart goes out to them. I want to know where I can send my
contribution. I feel so .bad for the Bushes. Good thing the
kids are gone; they can build a "smaller" castle. But of
course when the grandchildren arrive, they'll need more
than the 10 rooms they'll probably build. Maybe (Pres.
George W. Bush) can get a "bail-out" from somewhere to
help them in their plight.
The location is another issue. He's deemed the "worst" of
the worst, as presidents go. We've lost troops, businesses,
resources, just to name a fraction. The word "loss" is the
perfect description. So with all that said, they should move
to Iraq, Mexico or the Mojave Desert, where he can do no
more harm to the United States. This will keep him hidden

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, Colum-
bia and Snake Rivers,
Mexico's Sea of Cort6s and
the Hawaiian Islands.
I am seeing a bit of a
trend in those seeking
smaller, more intimate
and adventurous 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 experiences,
while others choose to
continue with their travel
plans, as this,is what they
worked their whole lives
for. I applaud their tenaci-
ty.
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 adventur-
ous trip, but were not keen
on giving up their comfort
nor their sense of taste for
the finer things that.
cruises generally offer.
This discussion 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 com-
prised 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
hard-to-reach locations
and narrow passages.
The small vessels and
group size allow for
flexible schedules, spon-
taneity and no waiting for
meals or boarding. The
vessels anchor each night,
not to miss any of the
glorious sights along the
way. The 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
surroundings, 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 equip-
ment such as kayaks,
mountain bikes, laser
sailboats and water skis,
inflatable skiffs for "on the
water" exploration, rubber
boots and rain gear,
insulated "Mustang suits"
for skiff excursions to view
glaciers up-close, snorkel-
ing gear, wet suits and a
multitude of electronics to
capture the experience.
You can choose to take
part in the up-close
expeditions 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 premi-
um wine, beer and spirits.
You can choose to sail
with 11 other passengers
or 35 passengers, depend-
ing on your voyage. You
want to bring your family
and charter the entire
yacht.
The private family
cruises feature customized
itineraries and activities, a
kid-friendly crew (when
kids are on board) and
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,
photography, golf, wed-
ding/honeymoon and
holiday cruises, or just a
bunch of friends wanting
to spend that time togeth-
er.
Some of the itineraries
include: Alaska Glacier
Bay National Park, adven-


turers' 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 high-
lights.
The Gulf of California's
(also known as the Sea of
Cort6s) 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 recog-
nized world heritage site,
which consists of 244
islands, all protected by a
reserve that creates a
natural environment of
striking beauty and
diversity.
ASC falls under the
categories of both small
ship and luxury cruise
line. More consumers are
looking for that something
different in travel, and
they will find it with ASC.

Boaters help keep


waterways safe


By Jenet Krol
Krol@hometownnewsol.com
When something is amiss in
your own backyard, it's easy to
spot.
With this in mind, the U.S.
Coast GuardAuxiliary encour-
ages anyone who has frequent
contact with area waterways
to keep an extra eye out for
any suspicious activities.
"It's very much like a neigh-
borhood watch," said Antho-
ny Turner, chief of media rela-
tions for the U.S. Coast Guard
Auxiliary. "When you are
there on a regular basis, you
are able to spot when some-


thing is just not right. We're
asking people in these areas to
be an extra set of eyes and ears
on the waterways."
.Anyone who works or plays
on the water can keep an eye
out, said Mr.' Turner, such as
an employee who works on a
dock, or someone, who fre-
quently eats at restaurant in
the marina.
"People are not suspicious;
behavior is suspicious. If
someone is under a bridge
taking pictures, it could be
innocent, but they could be
planning an attack. If you

Review.
From page Al
more low-income housing
in the area was not compati-
ble with the surroundings.
Council members cited
drainage and other con-
cerns in their denial.
7. West Melbourne City
Manager David Reynal vs.
two council members.
The city manager
entered a rough patch in
his relationship with coun-
cil when he did not return
to the city immediately fol-
lowing Tropical Storm Fay
in August.
In September, Mr. Rey-
nal urged the West Mel-
bourne City Council to ask
the State Attorney's Office
to investigate possible
Sunshine Law Violations
by council members.
The testy battles
between council members,
Ms. Eley, Mr. Hazlett, and
their city manager culmi-
nated in Mr. Reynal
announcing in October
that he would not accept a
new employment contract
from West Melbourne even
if it was offered.
6. Tropical Storm Fay hit
the area from August 18-
20, stalling over Mel-
bourne before slowly
drifting out over the
Atlantic north of Cape
Canaveral.
Municipal government
shut down area-wide.
Widespread flooding was
reported on A1A, U.S.1,


Lobbyist
From page'Al
$30,000 per year. Ms. San-
som, who pitched to council
on Dec. 2, proposed a
$27,000 for her fee, a savings
of $3,000.
Factions of the council
were at odds over choosing
either one for reasons of
perceived conflicts.
At the previous meeting,
Councilman' Pat Bentley
said the council should go
out for formal bid as Ms.
Sansom "had the opportu-
nity" to view the previous
proposal.
The same opportunity
was available to Mr. Ramba.
But City Attorney Jim Wil-
son said the council is hot in
violation of any statute pick-
ing and choosing a lawyer or,
a. lobbyist at a stroke. The
matter is entirely at the dis-
cretion of the council, he
said.
Once again, council mem-
bers appeared prepared to
delay the matter for the sake
of holding a proper bid-let-
ting in two weeks, with all
three sides trying to outdo
the other on price.
Mr. Ramba made the case
that the timetable for leg-
islative decisions in Talla-
hassee makes hiring a lob-
byist this year an immediate
choice.
He told the council his
firm represents more than
50 clients before the legisla-
tive and executive branches
of state , government, and
involves a team of 38 attor-
neys.
Mr. Ramba's proposal was
different from the others in
that it only specified the
period between Jan. 1
through June 30, as his con-
tractual obligation. It starts
and then closes with the leg-
islative season when oppor-
tunity for funding is at its
peak and laws are being
made.
He was asked if he
.thought two weeks made a
difference should the coun-
cil ask all three to make
another bid.
"Two weeks always makes
a difference," he said.
Mr. Ramba, who is a-_
,native of Palm Bay, said he
knew Melbourne .Mayor
Harry Goode well and was
on good terms with the fam-
ily.
"I bought my first
Schwinn from Harry
Goode's bike shop," he
said."I have no problem
being adverse (with him)
while representing my
client."
Council - members
expressed unease at how the
matter was being handled.
"I don't like this process.
It's unfair, and I know it's
unfair," Councilman Bill
Mettrick said.


State Road 520, Interstate
95, Wickham Road, and
North Banana River Drive.
Catfish and snakes had to
be cleared from runways at
Melbourne International
Airport.
Hard-hit areas included
Lamplighter Village in
Melbourne, and Westbrook
subdivision of West Mel-
bourne, where drainage
problems still persist fol-
lowing recent heavy rains.
5. Florida Tech turns 50,
and enters a "Golden Age."
What started with an
endowment of 37 cents has
become a 130-acre marvel
of higher education with
new centers dedicated to
the study of autism and
information assurance,
and new athletic facilities
currently under construc-
tion.
The school now gains
endowments in the mil-
lions from local industry
and successful alumni.
4. Melbourne vows to
tackle the problem of fore-
closure eyesores. City
Council members discuss
rules about foreclosure
code enforcement. Coun-
cilwoman Joanne Corby
works with staff on finding
funding. In December City
Manager Jack Schluckebier
announced that Mel-
bourne qualifies for as
much as $1.9 million in
federal funds to combat
foreclosure problems in
the city.
3. Melbourne, West Mel-
bourne elections bring
some new faces amid a


Mr. Mettrick had spoken
earlier in the evening about
the reported $51,000 in
overtime spent by the city in
the last three months. He
called the expenditure
"unbelievable" and said it
represented the vacant
human resources director
position the city desperately
needs filled.
Councilman Hazlett said
that not hiring a. lobbyist
could end up costing the
city more in the long run, in
that West Melbourne could
find, itself, blind-sided by
another piece of steakhy
legislation aimed at annexa-
tion or other matters.
City Manager David Rey-
nal spoke just before the
vote about the specific
terms of the contract. But
sound system problems
plagued the City' Council
meeting and only the
strongest of voices could be
clearly heard. above static at
times.
Hometown News called
the city hall Dec. 17 for
information about any
amendments to the contract
that may have been voted
on in the conclusion.
Mr. Reynal said that while
the proposal states Mr.
Ramba is being paid for the
legislative session at a rate
of $5,000 per month, Mr.
Wilson has been empow-
ered by the council to nego-
tiate for some consulting
services for the remainder of
the 12-month period.

Florida Power and Light

1. Water dispute
between Melbourne and
West Melbourne enters
the court system.


West Melbourne filed a
lawsuit against Melbourne
seeking clarification in
their contract for the pay-
ment of impact. fees for
water to new develop-

The lawsuit was filed in
July, just eight days after
Melbourne City Manager
Jack Schluckebier sent a


letter to West Melbourne
stating that their western
namesake was in breech of
their water contract.
West Melbourne officials
continue to insist that
development has been
stalled by snarls in water

radar," said Lt. Col. Bill
Gould, of Warner Robbins,
Air Force Base. "We can do
a lot more now."
It's an unfortunate fact
of bringing hurt to an
enemy who does most of
his business on or under
the ground. It requires as
much, if not more power,
than your son's stereo sys-
tem.
Back during the Cold
War, the Air Force had a
surveillance aircraft called
the AWACS, for Airborne
Warning and Control Sys-
tem. This spy plane
enabled fighters to keep
battle situational aware-
ness up-to-date.
Since most of the antici-
pated threats were air-
borne, either as missiles or
attack planes, the modi-
fied Boeing 707 airframe in
AWACS (also called the E-
8C) had the radar gear
spinning on top of the
plane.
But what happened: the
bad guys went to ground
and the radar element had
to be fitted to the bottom
of the plane, so that the
eyes in the sky could cover
the ground, and even into
caves and bunkers.
Also, imagine how many
upgrades to radar and
imaging technologies have
evolved over the last few
years. All of that stuff
requires power, and- as
with a car, power comes
from the engines, Lt. Col.
Gould said.
But the new power also
saves gas, he said. The
engines are more efficient.
That means more time on
station over the battle
region.
"We are another step
closer to the benefits these
new engines- will bring to
our troops," said Tom Rice,
eastern regional vice presi-
dent of Northrop-Grum-
man's integrated systems
sector.
"This translates to less
money spent in mainte-
nance and more time fly-
ing," he said.
They don't talk about
how much things cost at
these gatherings. It is
nowhere to be found in a
press kit.
But a web search shows
that it may not have been
cheap. In 2005 Northrop-
Grumman Melbourne
received $500 million cost-
reimbursement for the
contract to upgrade the
Joint STARS according to
the Defense Industry Daily.
Northrop-Grumman
spokesman Jim Stratford
said the total cost for the
upgrade is in the neighbor-
hood of $700 million.
"Sounds like a lot but
they pay for themselves in
reduced maintenance
costs and fuel consump-
tion," Mr. Stratford said.
So.what happens now?
About 235 test flights in
phase one of production.
In phase two, the upgrades
are implemented in the 19
Joint STARS of the 116th
Air Control Wing, of Warn-
er Robbins, he said.
Maj. Gen. William T. Nes-
bitt, the adjutant general
of Georgia said; "Joint
STARS continues to prove
itself mission after mission
in the global war oh terror.
These engines will enable
our crews to double our
time (on target) with 50
percent faster with less
fuel and maintenance
costs."

Let's go


shopping

Love a bargain.And the
day after Christmas
begins the best shop-
ping for bargain-hunters
-like me. As retailers ready
for the New Year and try to
inch up their profits for the
old year, prices drop
drastically on everything
from wrapping paper to
major electronics.
If you received a gift card
or a bit of the green - in
other words, cash- under
the tree this year, you
could, of course, open a
bank account or add it to
your current one. That
would be a wise thing to do,
especially in these difficult
financial times.
But if you want to put a
smile on your face, as well
as a smile on the faces of
your friends in local
business, help the economy
in an even better way- go
shopping.
There are hundreds of
opportunities to shop in
Brevard County. The county
provides thousands of
retailers, grocery stores,
restaurants, hotels, flea ,
markets and festivals.
Having trouble deciding
where to spend your cash?
Well, for whomever that
money was intended, begin
with a ride down the street
of your community to see if
a store tickles your fancy. Be
sure to ask your family
members their opinion if it
is a family gift. If it is for
yourself, go ahead and
splurge.
. One of my favorite self- *
indulgences is a therapeu-
tic massage. Nothing makes
me feel better after hover-
ing over a computer all
week than having the
tension worked out of my
neck and shoulder muscles.
Choose your own self-
indulgence and treat
yourself to a bargain. You'll
help yourself and the
economy.

Sean Spoto demonstrates surfboard


art at Cocoa Beach's Ron Jon Surf Shop


Artist creates hand-
painted surfboards
By Jenet Krol
Krol@hometownnewsol.com
COCOA BEACH - Sean Spoto
puts his talent to use on surfboards,
but you won't see him out on the
waves.
He creates bold and bright cus-
tom, hand-painted surfboards for
LOST Enterprises.
During the ninth annual "LOST in
Florida" tour, Mr. Spoto will visit
Ron Jon Surf Shop in Cocoa Beach
and give attendees a glimpse of his
creative process, creating a custom-
painted surfboard.
"We're so excited to have Sean
demonstrate his artwork at Ron
Jon's," said Heather Lewis, Ron Jon's
director of marketing. "His live surf-
board paintings always draw a
crowd in our stores."
Mr. Spoto, a Tampa native, began
painting surfboards more than 20
years ago for himself and his
friends.
"I started when I was around 14 or
15," said Mr. Spoto.
A graduate of the University odf
Central Florida in Orlando, Mr.
Spoto began airbrushing the foam
used to make surfboards before the
fiberglass is applied.
"I hated it. Dealing with the foam
is so delicate and it can get dirty.
And even when you try to do some-
thing new, airbrushingg) has been
done for so long it still looks like air-
brushing," he said.
Today, Mr. Spoto works with
paint-pens, which resemble large
magic markers. He applies the paint
to a finished LOST surfboard, then

seals it on with an acrylic clear coat.
"The surface is very slick, which is
ideal for the paint pens," he said.
"It's very different from airbrush-
ing."
Mr. Spoto works in a style he
defines as bold. ,
"It's almost a tagging look. There
are a lot of skulls and crossbones. I
use very bold colors and outline
them in black. Most kids and pro-
surfers want to be seen from far
away while surfing," he said.


When Mr. Spoto is done, the
board is more than just a piece of
art. It is ready to take on the ocean.
One lucky spectator will win the
board Mr. Spoto paints, said Ms.
Lewis. The entrant must be present
to win.
Attendees can watch Mr. Spoto
paint a surfboard from noon to- 4
p.m., Dec. 27 at Ron Jon Surf Shop,
4151 N. Atlantic Ave., Cocoa Beach.

Dustin's has 'down home' food


By Jamye Durrance
durrance@hometownnewsol.com
Walking into the Edgewa-
ter location of Dustin's BBQ
on a recent weekday after-
noon for lunch was like
stopping home for lunch.
From the friendly hostess'
welcome to the down home
decorating, Dustin's is a fam-
ily restaurant through and
through.
But, it's the family recipe
barbecue that really makes
the dining experience.
Offering all the Southern
standard barbecue favorites
of baby back ribs, chicken,
pulled pork and beef, the
family-owned Dustin's pre-
pares them with their own
recipes.
"We don't really have
competition," said manager
Toni Withey. "The quality of
our food really sets us apart."
Indeed it does.
I ordered the barbecue
beef lunch plate with a side
of coleslaw and fries. My
dining companion ordered
the pork lunch plate with
baked beans and a baked
potato. Each came with a
side of garlic bread.
Both plates had ample
servings of everything and
you could especially taste
the 'family recipe touch in
the sides.
My dining companion
said the baked beans were
much creamier and sweeter
than anything she had at
other barbecue restaurants.
My coleslaw was sweet,
not at all tart or overbearing.
The meat was thoroughly
cooked and moist and were
wonderfully accompanied
by Dustin's two sauces: mild
and sweet.
The sweet sauce was our
favorite but the mild offered
a distinct contrast with a fla-

vor that was spicier than the
sweet.
The wait staff was on top
of their game during the
busy lunch hour, hustling all,
over the restaurant, offering
up smiles and laughs with
everyone.
"Our service is really
important to us," Ms. Withey
said.
Our food came within
minutes of ordering and our
waitress checked on us fre-
quently.
For the vegetarians or
those wanting a break from
their carnivore ways,
Dustin's offers an all-you-
can-eat. salad bar that is
well-stocked with fresh veg-
etables and fruits.
For the kiddies, a kid's
menu with smaller portions
of the lunch plates, a hanm-
burger or barbecue sand-
wich is available.


Ms. Withey's father, Win-
ston Tomlinson, started
Dustin's in 1991 with the
Edgewater location.
The restaurant was
named after Mr. Tomlinson's
first grandchild.
Within a few years of
opening, Dustin's grew, with
locations in Ormond Beach,
Port Orange, Deland and
Melbourne.
Ms. Withey said more
locations are a possibility
but the family is happy to
reflect on what they have
now.
,"The 17 years has gone by
really fast," she said. "Every-
thing has just gone really
well."
Dustin's also offers cater-
ing. Gift cards are also avail-
able. For more information,

Remembering Mamma with a traditional cookie recipe


H ello 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 mid-
night 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 New Year'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

tomorrow. 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 kept ques-
tioning Mamma's instruc-
tions. Here's how it went
while making the Tordil-
los.
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 questions. 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

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.

Break off small pieces of

True bling is splendorous


W ll, Christmas has
come and gone.
Where did the time
go, anyway? Gone are
thoughts that raced to find
what we could do to make it
the best Christmas ever for
family and friends. Many
made a last-ditch effort to
bring things together.
Bottom line, for most, was
the need for.a miracle of
doing much with little. One
could have gotten "grinchy"
about the financial situa-
tion, but, who needs
another Scrooge-type story?
We didn't panic. Produc-
tivity slows down in a panic.
Instead, we assessed the
situation and got the basics
covered - like getting the
house ready. Changing
things around got us
energized. Buying that new
set of dishes that was on
sale. Some of us brought out
the special ones, and, yes,
we even used the wine
glasses for a toast that
added festivity to water and
iced tea.
Cutting the palm branch-
es and adding them to the
old silks was not bad at all.
Tinsel added sparkle and
shine to make things
special. All the while,
sparkle and shine was
getting on us, as we exerted
an effort to prepare. Setting
out our best Christmas
paper plates even helped to


trigger our thoughts to the
season and the new begin-
ning that's upon us, 2009.
But, as always, it's the
inner shine that made the
real difference at Christmas,
as we considered how we
made it through, from
Christmas past to Christmas
present with the help of
God.
Hey, we've got a lot to
celebrate just thinking
about the obstacles that
we've scaled in the past few
months.
Just days ago, thoughts of
the gift issue turned our
stress levels into high gear.
The reality of our finances
and how to handle that part
of Christmas has always
been a test. Minds began to
probe like an octopus with
tentacles, reaching to find
the possibilities of where to
get purchasing power and
not fall deeper in debt. Yes,
call the bank; check bal-
ances, calculate how many
paychecks will come in to
cover the extras.
Hey, who started this gift-
giving business anyway? It
may help to know who's to
blame for the compelling
forces that seem to over-
come us to give and why it
just doesn't seem to be
Christmas if we can't give
those we love something.
Did it come from the
craftiness of wise advertis-

ers that have commercial-
ized and capitalized on the
season? Is that where it all
began?
The wonder of who
started gift-giving takes us
back to Bethlehem and the
first Christmas morning
when God, who so loved the
world, clothed Himself in
the wrappings of humanity
to give the gift of Himself to
man.
"For unto us a child was
born, a Son was given."
Jesus is the ornament of
splendor that lights the
hearts of men with priceless
worth a:nd eternal value,
whose presence transforms
the ordinary to extraordi- -
nary and the plain to
uniquely special. He is God's
perfect gift to all. So God
started it all, not the depart-
ment stores.
Giving is not just a natural
expression; it's a deep need
within, a tugging on our
hearts, with the desire to
give. It's an ongoing lesson
updated at Christmastime
. that's to dictate how we live
all year long.
. The coziest Christmas of
all is to have Jesus, the gift of
God to man, welcomed in
the inn of our hearts and at
our celebration. With Him
came true "bling." So go
7 ahead and continue to
unwrap what Christmas is
really all about with your .
faith and get ready to give
gifts that are priceless even
through the New Year. Gifts
of love, compassion,
kindness; and pledge your
forgiveness to all.
Watch the sparkle of His
presence light things up
with the unmatched
wonder of Christmas and
hold onto that thought of
gifts and giving through the
NewYear:
