Residents dig deep to support veterans


City had said 'no'
to funding for
veterans group
BY JEANNE WILLARD
Staff writer
PORT ORANGE -A deci-
sion by city officials to snap
the wallet shut on funding
to veterans riled some resi-
dents, but spurred an out-
pouring of generous private
donations to purchase a
van to transport veterans to
hospitals.
"We did make the com-
mitment," a jubilantVolusia
County Chairman Frank
Bruno said. "In fact, we got
more. That means a whole
lot to me."
Vice Mayor Mary Martin
said the city strongly sup-
ports veterans, but was


constrained -
by a policy
decision.
"The city
made a pol-
icy decision a
during the
budget ses-
sion not to
fund any
charities,"
she said. Martin
The city
could not donate to one
charity while ignoring oth-
ers, she said.
Ms. Martin was pleased
that residents were so gen-
erous with their support.
"The end result is that the
money is there" for the vet-
erans, she said. "I was
thrilled."
Richard Tolfa, Disabled
American Veterans district
commander, had turned to
Mr. Bruno when the organi-


zation failed to raise
enough money for a new
van something they had
done for 20 years using
bingo receipts. The pro-
ceeds from the group's
twice-weekly games at the
Holly Hill headquarters just
, didn't stretch far enough
this year, he said.
"I just don't know how to
say thank you," Mr. Tolfa
said. "I think it's just a won-
derful thing everybody has
done in the county in sup-
port of the veterans," the
70-year-old Air Force veter-
an said.
Mr. Bruno adopted the
fundraising project in
memory of his brother,
Chief Master Sgt. Thomas
Bruno, who was killed in an
accident at Georgia's Warn-
er Robins Air Force base last
year. The county pledged
nearly $5,000 of the $24,000


'The city made a policy decision during the
budget session not to fund any charities." The
city could not donate to one charity while
ignoring others.

Mary Martin

needed and Mr. Bruno
appealed to each city to
raise the remaining money.
When word got out
recently that Port Orange
was one of four cities that
declined to donate due to
budgetary constraints, it
touched a sore spot with
some residents.
Beau Gardner, president
of Port Orange Professional
Firefighters Local 3118, said
he was disappointed in the
city's response.
"This is an egregious


error on (the city's) part," he
said.
"Veterans gave every-
thing they had for us," Mr.
Gardner said. "Our veterans
will be supported by Local
3118."
The firefighters associa-
tion pledged $500 and indi-
vidual members donated
an additional $450 out of
their pockets, he said.
Mr. Bruno said many Port
Orange residents respond-

Robotics competition


showcases student talent


BY JEANNE WILLARD
Staff writer
PORT ORANGE -While
not exactly on par with R2-
D2 the comic robot fea-
tured in the Star Wars films
- students at area schools
are building robots as part
of a program to inspire
teens to embrace science
and technology.
Students from Spruce
Creek High School and
New Smyrna Beach High
School recently spent


weeks tweaking and fine-
tuning hand-built robots
in preparation for the
recent Daytona RobotFest.
The RobotFest, present-
ed by Spruce Creek High
School's Academy of Infor-

Engineering and Daytona
Robotics, was held Dec. 15
to showcase robotics and
raise money for the acade-
my. Area businesses such
as Daytona International

Make a New
Year's resolution
to make new
friends, club's
founder says
BY BETHANY CHAMBERS
Staff writer
PORT ORANGE Mov-
ing back to Port Orange at
age 38, Todd Schryver
found it was a lot harder to
meet people than it had
been when he lived here as
a Stetson University stu-
dent.
Drawing on a social hik-
ing group he'd joined while
living in Las Vegas, Mr.
Schryver decided to set up a
similar group, the Volusia
County Singles, a year and a
half ago.
"When you're in school,
you have tons of people
close to you," he said.
"Then you get older and
your friends get married
and have kids or you get
married and have kids, and
you're so busy it's hard to
make friends, except at
work, and I try to avoid
that."
Working as a full-time
accountant, Mr. Schryver
took up the club as a "full-
time hobby."
Through the club, Mr.
Schryver even met his girl-
friend of eight months.
But it wasn't enough.


Hoping to take that suc-
cess to a different level, Mr.
Schryver renamed the
group Halifax Social Club
this past month.
The new goal: Help sin-
gles, couples and those not
looking for relationships
meet others in a county
filled with transplants and
transients.
The club, open to anyone
25 or older who lives or
works in Volusia County, is
for "professional, mature
adults looking for new
avenues of friendship," Mr.
Schryver said.
With 130 members aged
25-60 (though theie is no
age limit), the group hosts
about four events a week
across the county.
"Anybody who has tried
meeting people online
knows why it doesn't work.
The key to this is meeting
people face-to-face," Mr.
Schryver said. "A lot of peo-
ple online, you see pictures
and don't respond. Here
you get to meet and know
them."
Through the group's Web
site, halifaxsocialclub.com,
members can post profiles
- photos optional and
RSVP for events, which
range from happy hour
meet and greets to weekly
tennis tournaments.
Members, can host their
own events including
house parties, wine tasting

Residents star
in personalized
romance novel

BY JEANNE WILLARD
Staff writer
PORT ORANGE In August,
John Gould was searching for the
perfect 25th anniversary present
for his wife.
"I was looking for something
out of the box," the Port Orange
resident said.
After selecting a gift no bigger
than a paperback novel, he care-
fully wrapped it and left it on his
wife's pillow.
When his wife, Yvonne, opened
the present, she told him that it
was the second most romantic gift
he's ever given her, Mr. Gould said.
"That day, I was a hero," he said.
So what exactly was the gift that
swept Mrs. Gould off her feet?
It was a steamy, page-turning
romance novel starring Mr. and


'These books are for
two people in love and
they will make love in the
book."

Mrs. Gould as hero and heroine.
"She read that cover to cover
- right on the spot," Mr. Gould
said. "It was very effective."
Yournovel.com is the brainchild
of husband and wife team J.S.
Fletcher, 57, and Kathy Newbern,
52, writing under the pseudonym
Fletcher Newbern.
Customers provide names, city,
hair color, make of car, favorite
music and other details that the
authors use to personalize one of
24 themed novels.
Choices include settings rang-
ing from exotic islands, dude
ranches, cruises, and a historical
novel set in the 1800s. Also fea-


tured are destinations such as Key
West, Tahiti, New Orleans, North
Carolina and Rome.
"The idea of going to an exotic
place" is very popular, Ms. New-
bern said.
Customers can ratchet up the
spice factor by selecting a "wild"
version or leave more to the imag-
ination with the "mild" version.
"I got the steamy, of course," Mr.
Gould said, laughing.
Mr. Fletcher equated the mild
version with a PG-13 rated movie
and the wild version closer to an R
rating.
The novels are never graphic,
said Ms. Newbern, but they are
romances.
"These books are for two people
in love and they will make love in
the book," she said.
The setting for the novel Mr.
Gould selected is a luxury cruise
to Alaska the honeymoon he and
his wife never had, but hope to
take some day, he said.
Although they discuss an

and ethnic dinners and
post them on the site, too.
The Web site also is where
members can pay their
dues, $18 a month or $156 a
year. Although it is a busi-
ness, Mr. Schryver said, it
has only broken even with
the cost of the interactive
server site and various
events.
Charlene Ross, a Daytona
Beach resident, joined the
club four months ago when
her long-term relationship
fizzled out.
With her children grown
and out of the house, she
decided she needed to do
something to meet new peo-
ple.
On her first trip to the
club, she met 39-year-old
businessman Jeff Litman,
also of Daytona Beach.
By the end of the "very
romantic weekend" of club
activities, the two were
inseparable.
This is only one of hun-
dreds of success stories, Mr.
Schryver said.
The group currently has
10 couples, all of whom met
through the club.
Mr. Schryver and his girl-
friend bonded over a hiking
and camping trip at Juniper


Springs.
But, he assures, he's still
no Don Juan.
"Face it: We're all pretty
clueless about relation-
ships," he said. "It's always a
learning experience, and I'm
learning every day."
That perceived lack of
expertise is what leads some
people to avoid joining the
group, Mr. Schryver said.
Mingling on a recent Fri-
day at the club's regular
meet and greet at
Stonewood Grill in Port
Orange, Ms. Ross was radi-
ant as she held the arm of
her beau.
The Long Island native
said she was glad she met
Mr. Litman, a kindred spirit
with a shared love of biking
and exercising, even though
he beats her every time at
mini golf.
"Now I'm trying to get my
(26-year-old) daughter to
join and get involved in
something," she said.
Mr. Litman, a one-year
member of the club,, said
even as a member he was
sometimes nervous about
meeting new people. Still,
this was better than the bar
scene or online dating.
He's now thankful every


day that he came to
Stonewood that August
evening, he said.
"I was really tired that
night and thought about not
going," he said. "It was fate."
Even those who are hap-
pily single can enjoy the
club, Mr. Schryver said.
Mike Woods of Deltona
was just out of a 26-year
marriage when his 21-year-
old son encouraged him to
get off the couch and join
the club.
Though he dated another
member briefly, he prefers
the friendships he makes,
he said.
"These people saved my
life. They lifted me up out of
the pits of depression. I
made friends I can call any
time I want," he said. "You
can't put a price on that."
This holiday season, Mr.
Schryver said the group
welcomes those who might
otherwise be alone to get
involved.
"You made a New Year's
resolution to get out and
meet people," he said. "The
time is now, and this is the
opportunity to make those
new friends."

From page Al


Alaskan trip every year,
there's always a reason why
they can't swing it, he said.
As soon as he read the
description of "Cruise Alas-
ka," he knew it was the per-
fect book for his wife.
"She loved it," he said.
"She's a softie and always
looking for a good love
story."
The romance novel busi-
ness grew out of an ice-
breaker question Ms. New-
bern was asked at a public
relations conference she
attended in 1992 with then
boyfriend, Mr. Fletcher.
In response to the ques-
tion: "What would people
be surprised to find out
about you?" she told col-
leagues she'd written a
romance novel. At lunch,
one of her friends suggested
it would be great to read a


personalized romance
novel.
The proverbial "light bulb
moment" occurred on the
four-hour ride home from
the conference, with the
couple outlining the first
book on a manila envelope.
"It's changed our lives,"
Mr. Fletcher said, with the
business now providing
their livelihood.
"It's been the best deci-
sion I've made, besides the
decision to marry Kathy," he
said.
"We are very sappy and
romantic," Ms. Newbern
said laughing. "We are one
of those couples."
Married for 13 years, the
couple live in Raleigh, NC,
and also freelance as travel
writers, something that
inspires many of the settings
in the novels, she said.


Valentine's Day is their
busiest time of the year, but
people order books for
anniversaries, birthdays, for
soldiers stationed overseas,
and just for fun, she said.
If someone wants to star
in a novel with Brad Pitt,
hold a dream job and drive a
Lamborghini go for it, the
couple said.
"Have fun with it," Ms.
Newbern said, "be creative."
The books cost $50 to
$120 depending on options
such as paperback, hard
cover and customized pho-
tos, with delivery taking one
to two weeks.
The novels are fun and a
bit campy, Ms. Newbern
said, but they have an
underlying message that
both are proud of.
The characters in the
book tell their partners how


important they are in their
lives, something that busy
couples may not take the
time to do, Mr. Fletcher said.
"We are putting people in
a situation where they can
improve their relationship,"
he said.
"It's important to say
these things to each other,"
Ms. Newbern said, even if
it's speaking through a book.
Meanwhile, Mr. Gould
promised his wife he would
not reveal the most roman-
tic present he gave her, but
said he has recommended
Yournovel.com to his bud-
dies. The romance gifts are
especially useful after a
marital tiff, he said.
"It's a get out of the dog
house free card," he said.

Holiday fire safety tips offered


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS
Along with the holiday
cheer and gift-giving, fire
safety should be at the top of
everyone's list. With more
than 32 million homes dec-
orating real trees this sea-
son, according, to the
National Christmas Tree
Association, and the use of


holiday candles and elec-
tricity for decorations, fire
safety becomes even more
critical this time of year.
On average, real and arti-
ficial Christmas trees are the
first items ignited in an esti-
mated 210 home fires annu-
ally, according to the
National Fire Protection
Association. In fact, Christ-


mas tree fires accounted for
an average of 24 deaths
nationwide between 2002
and 2005, according to the
NFPA. Electrical failure, hol-
iday lights, other decora-
tions and heating sources
caused most of these fires.
Holiday fire safety life-
saving tips:
*Install a smoke alarm on


every level of your home.
Test smoke alarm batteries
each month and change
them at least once a year.
Consider installing a 10-year
lithium battery-powered
smoke alarm, which is
sealed so it cannot be tam-
pered with or opened.

Frigid temps, gusty


winds make news


Hi, Hometown News
readers.
It is a hectic time
for all as we dash around
planning for the holidays
and typically, these days
are slow for news. Not this
year!
The December heat
wave finally broke with a
cold front that brought
storms to the area and
many feared a repeat of
last year's Christmas Day
tornadoes that did so
much damage inVolusia
County, but so far, we've
been spared. Gusty winds
took down power lines
and tree limbs, but we saw
no other property damage
and no one was hurt,
despite tornado warnings.
An 18-year-old Port
Orange motorist was killed
and investigators say speed
may have been a factor in
the crash.
Stephen Dine was driving
south on Williamson Blvd.
when he lost control of his
car and slammed into a
-traffic light at Willow Run
Blvd. Mr. Dine, who was
wearing a seatbelt, was
pronounced dead at the
scene.
Many have been uneasy
over the recent deaths in
our area, three of them
homicides. While authori-
ties have ruled out any
connection between them,
the sheer numbers have
people wondering what is
going on.
We learned that remains
found in garbage bags
along the Tomoka River
canal, were that of a 27-
year-old Port Orange man.
Police say a co-worker
called to say Michael Louis-
hadn't been to work in
several weeks. At the same
time, Mr. Louis' family was
trying to reach him and
growing increasingly
worried.
Port Orange police and
Ormond Beach police put
two-and-two together and
with fingerprints, made a
positive ID. Mr. Louis'
family says it wasn't
uncommon for the 27-year
-old to be out of touch,
though in recent years he
seemed to be pu rting his
life back together. Mr.


CLAIRE METZ
WESH-TV News
bureau chief
Louis had his own apart-
ment and held down a job
at the Port Orange Wal-
mart.
His father, Joseph
Provenzano thought he
recognized tatoos police
publicized to help identify
the dismembered victim,
but at that time, forensic
experts thought the
remains were that of a 16-
to-20 year old, so they
weren't concemed>Now
they know Mr. Louis was
murdered and they want
his killer found. His father
thinks Mr. Louis may have
been murdered over a
woman. Mr. Provenzano
says his son was dating
someone but theyhad
never met her.
Another body turned up
in the Halifax River near
the Main Street Bridge but
police say 48-year-old Paul
Miller is not a homicide
victim. Police are waiting
for toxicology reports to
determine the cause of
death but they suspect Mr.
Miller had a medical
condition that led to his
death.
Days later, a body was
found floating beneath a
dock in the river near
Bicentennial Park in
Ormond-by-the-Sea.
Volusia County sheriff's
investigators quickly
determined this victim was
murdered but ruled out
any connection to Michael
Louis.
In this case, investigators
say the victim, 32-year-old
David Sanders was killed,
by two men he had been

'Tow to Go' offers free rides


to 'spirited' holiday drivers


BY JEANNINE GAGE
Staff writer

VOLUSIA COUNTY For
many people, this time of
year brings a plethora of
parties and celebrations,
which in turn may mean a
plethora of imbibing in the
"spirits" of the holidays.
Unfortunately, this leads to
unsafe roads when those
spirits impair holiday driv-
ers.
Luckily, the AAA and Bud-
weiser have teamed up to
get holiday revelers out of
their cars and into the cab of
a tow truck. Tow to Go is a
program that provides free
rides for both impaired driv-
ers and their cars.
"This program is very
close to our heart," said
Joanne Newton, spokes-
woman for AAA Auto Club
South. "We're very proud of
it."
The program is available
in Florida, Georgia and Ten-
nessee and more than 7,000
tows have been given since
its inception. It is available
mostly on holiday weekends
like St. Patrick's Day, Labor
Day and Halloween, but
also on other "spirited"
occasions like the Super
Bowl. Rides are available
through Jan. 1 for the holi-
day season.
"This is definitely the
busiest time of year," Ms.
Newton said. "We'll get 80
percent of our calls during
the holidays."
Volusia County Sheriff
Ben Johnson said the pro-
gram makes streets safer.
"We in law enforcement
truly appreciate the many
programs out there that give

people options other than
getting behind the wheel
when they've had too much
to drink," Mr. Johnson said.
"The Tow to Go program
removes an excuse we hear
all too often: 'I didn't want to
leave my car behind.'"
Arrow Wrecker owner Al
Balboa of Holly Hill has
been a part of the program
since its inception. He said
it is sometimes a "pain" to
transport not only a car, but
a passenger.
"We figure it's worth it
though, to get drunk drivers
off the road," he said.
Mr. Balboa said most peo-
ple are surprised to learn of
the service.
"They definitely like the
fact that they don't have to
leave their car," he said. "A
lot of people just won't do
that."
Most people are easy to
deal with, Mr. Balboa said,
but others are so "blitzed"
they can be difficult.
"They'll want to help get
the car on the truck and play
with the controls," he said.
"Or some of them will get
sick in the truck. That's a
joy."
Still, Mr. Balboa, who also
tell his friends and family to
call him for a tow instead of
driving drunk, said he has
no problem with answering


the 10 to 15 calls a day he
expects to get from the Tow
to Go program through the
holidays.
"It's better than seeing
them get jammed up with
the law or killed," he said.
Most Two to Go calls
come from bartenders or
other employees of restau-
rants and lounges, Ms. New-
ton said.
"Budweiser really helps
get the word out about the
program," she said. "They're
the ones out in the bars let-
ting people know about it."
Most people don't have to
wait much longer than they
would for a taxi, Ms, Newton
said, because the Tow to Go
calls are considered a priori-
ty and because there are so
many tow truck drivers, who
get paid by AAA for their
services, involved in the
program. But if there is a
wait, it's usually not a prob-
lem, she said.
"Most people are in a
'relaxed' state, rather than
being stuck in traffic or on
the way home from work,"
she said. "So, they can just
sit tight and enjoy the com-
pany they're with."
Drivers do not have to be a
member of AAA to take
advantage of Tow to Go. The
phone number is 1-800-
AAA-HELP (4357).

ed with generous donations.
"I'm very proud of them,"
he said.
While corresponding
some months ago with a
soldier stationed in Iraq,
Port Orange .businessman
Tom Wright asked the young
man what he could do for
him. The soldier wrote that
the best thing people can do
is to support the veterans,
Mr. Wright said.
When Mr. Wright heard
Mr. Bruno's plea, he knew
what to do.
"There's the idea," he said.
"There's the way to serve the
veterans."
Although he said he was
surprised to hear the City of
Port Orange declined to
donate, Mr. Wright immedi-
ately offered $2,682, the
amount Mr. Bruno had
requested from the city
based on population.
"I'm picking up for the

city of Port Orange," he said.
"I don't blame the city," he
added. "Their hands are
tied."
Mr. Wright is CEO of La-
Man Corporation, a produc-
er of compressed air filters
located in the Eastport Busi-
neIs Center. He also com-
mutes to Minnesota where
he overseas another related
business. he said.
Although he did not serve
in the Vietnam War due to a
high draft number, he lost
an uncle in World War II and
his father was a Korean War
veteran, he said.
"I'm kind of a flag waving
kind of guy," he said. "With-
out (the veterans) service
and dedication, we would
not enjoy the freedom we
often take for granted."
William A. Cummings,
and his wife, Ann, have two
sons in the Army. With one
recently deployed to Iraq,


the news that veterans
might go without medical
transportation hit the Port
Orange resident hard.
"It's too bad -we can't
afford to transport those
boys," Mr. Cummings said.
"I didn't understand it," he
said, so he looked for a way
to help.
He's offered to donate a
portion of his book sales to
the DAV. The book, titled
Life is Sexually Transmitted.
is about understanding the
marriage commitment
based on Christian princi-
ples.
Mr. Cummings, who
hopes to raise enough
money to fund a second
van, will be signing copies of
his book at Barnes & Noble
in Daytona Beach on Jan. 12
from noon to 2 p.m.
"I'm so happy we were
able to order the van which
will be here when they need
it in June," Mr. Bruno said.
Mr. Bruno said that any
money raised over the goal
will go towards reimbursing
the county for a temporary
loan it made until funds
were raised. The balance
will be set aside in a special
DAV account to defray the
cost of the next van.
Donations can be sent to:

Disabled sell official Christmas


ornament, poinsettias


BY BETHANY CHAMBERS
Staff writer

VOLUSIA COUNTY One
of the area's official Christmas
tree ornaments for 2007 is not
imported from another conti-
nent. It is not mass produced.
And it is not a money-maker
for some big box store.
Every penny generated on
sales of the $15 "Florida
Gator" porcelain ornament
goes to those Volusia County
residents who hand-crafted
the 2,500 limited edition
pieces at the United Cerebral
Palsy Work Oriented Rehabili-
tation Center on Jimmy Ann
Drive in the heart of Daytona
Beach.
One of those artists is 68-
year-old Anita Procacci of
D.ii.umi Beach, who has
worked at the center for little
more than a year.
"I like the job. I like to
paint," the developmentally
disabled master glazer said.
Ms. Procacci and her peers
may have mental retardation
and physical disabilities due
to brain injuries, cerebral
palsy, or Down Syndrome, but
the work they do liberates
them, center marketing direc-
tor Lynn Kaiser Conrad said.
By learning to be responsi-
ble for herself, Ms. Procacci
will travel home to upstate
New York this Christmas for
the first time in years, she
said. She is now able to travel
alone.
The 16th annual official
ornament was designed by
nationally acclaimed ceramic
artist Sang Roberson of
Ormond Beach.
Ms. Roberson, who will
have her work shown at the
Smithsonian Craft Show in
April, has designed nine orna-
ments for the center since
1991.
"I've done a lot of art shows
and gotten lots of mention,
but I honestly can't think of
anything that does any more
good," she said, as she signed
ornaments for collectors who
came from across the state to
meet her at the center.
At the Dec. 6 Christmas
kick-off party, Daytona Beach
Vice Mayor Rick Shiver pre-
sented a citywide proclama-
tion declaring sales of the offi-

Jackie Baiamonte of Port Orange holds a limited edition gator Christmas ornament dur-
ing the UCP/WORC poinsettia sale in Daytona Beach.


cial ornament.
Like many others who
attended the event, Mr. Shiver
said nothing was more impor-
tant than giving all people,
regardless of their abilities,
the chance to work and feel
important.
Started in 1969 by Daytona
Beach resident Geraldine
Schwartz, now a 91-year-old
member of the board of direc-
tors, the center was a place to
send her brain-damaged son
to give him "something to do,"
she said.
Combined with the United
Cerebral Palsy of East Central
Florida three years ago, the
center was able to receive
more funding and specialize
in helping those with cerebral
palsy, CEO Barry Pollack of
Ormond Beach said.
Today the center serves
more than 500 local physically
and mentally challenged
adults each year. They seek
the center's many services,
which include adult educa-
tion classes with Daytona
Beach Community College
professors, residential servic-
es and job evaluation and
training.
People can call or walk in
off the street to receive the
center's help.
One of the first responders
is Daniel Remmert, 50, of


South Daytona. Mr. Remmert
provides the center's voca-
tional evaluation, oftentimes
to those who have recently
sustained injuries and are no
longer able to work in the
same field.
Mr. Remmert understands
how that feels, himself having
damaged his spinal cord at 19.
He has been confined to a
wheelchair ever since.
"We try to have people
leave here with a sense of
hope. They're taking that first
step forward by coming here,"
he said. "I say, 'Hey, let's look
at your dream job and work
back from there. You want to
be a doctor? Maybe we can
find you work in a doctor's
office. Maybe you just need a
little training.'"
At the center, participants
train for jobs in wood-work-
ing, food and janitorial servic-
es, ceramics and lawn and
garden care.
This time of year, Gary
Stone of New Smyrna Beach
and his staff "have a ball" car-
ing for 3,000 poinsettias.
When they sell out as they
have for years in a row they
will have earned $30,000 for
the center, the 4-year lawn
services supervisor said.
They sell hundreds of
plants, starting at $3.50 for a
4-inch pot, to gardeners and


organizations holding holiday
parties, Mr. Pollack said.
"People want to have the
nicest, most beautiful plants,"
he said. "You can't buy poirn-
settias of this quality any-
where else."
Ormond Beach Commis-
sioner Lori Gilloly, executive
director of Halifax Habitat for
Humanity, purchased the
poinsettias in bulk for her hol-
idayparty.
Ms. Gillooly attended the
Dec. 6 event with her brother,
Bob Melignano, a Daytona
Beach resident with cerebral
palsy.
"You couldn't put a price on
the service they provide here,"
she said. "With the budget
cuts around the state, we
need to find some funding for
this agency."
Even in this economic
downturn, it's important to
support the UCP because
"any one of us at any time
could be in need of these serv-
ices," Ms. Kaiser Conrad said.
"This facility helps people
to face the world, to live inde-
pendently and to do the work
they want to," the Port Orange
.resident said. "Don't we all
want something like that in
life?"

The beauty of Chistmas
The Christmas season is here, thus this is not a rant or a rave,
but a reflection.
It is clear to me that Christmas does not respect speed limits.
It seems like only yesterday that I was looking forward to the
4th of July fireworks display, and no sooner did the last one
burst in a glory of color and sounds, Christmas was here again.
I know somewhere along the highway of time I passed Hal-
loween and Thanksgiving, but they were a mere blur. I have *
learned that the speed with which Christmas comes roaring
down that highway is directly related to my age. The older I get,
the more years I put on this body, the faster Christmas comes
and goes.
Thus, like yesterday's good meal, I spend more time looking
back over Christmases past than I have time to enjoy each one.
I can recall a few of the toys I received as a child that were so
special to me then. A sled, a flashing/beeping signal station in
those days Ipods and computers were so far over the horizon
that no one had any inkling of what was yet to come.
But what is most interesting is that for the most part, those
Christmas gifts are long forgotten, and what remains are mem-
ories. Memories of a freshly cut, but seemingly always crooked,
tree that my Dad had to erect carefully. For us, it was all blue
lights glowing on the tree blue lights of peace and serenity.
Around the base of the tree was my electric train which I got for
my first Christmas. (I still have that train; in as good a shape as
it was those many years ago.) There was Christmas music on
the radio fostering that sense of Christmas. Most importantly,
now as I look back, there were my parents. There hardly is a
memory of Christmas past that doesn't include them. And
although I wasn't conscious of it, and thus unable to articulate
it, for those twelve days of Christmas just as throughout the
remainder of the year, there was the gift of love.
I didn't realize it then, but what I was really getting for each
Christmas was the best of all gifts memories. Memories of
family and friends, of good times and warm feelings. Those
memories remain memories of laughter shared with family
and friends, and a privately shed tear of joy. The highlight of
Christmas was not in buying some great item in a store sale at
half price, but in collecting the remembrances of a gentler time
- a time of sharing, loving and caring.
Most of the family and friends I shared those Christmases
with as a child are long gone. But the gift they gave me of being
there during those Christmas seasons have stayed with me, and
will stay with me, for all the days of my life.
I pray that those of you on the senior side of the street have
similar memories. And for those younger, take 'this simple
advice. Absorb every moment, revel in every minute, for what
you are getting is the best Christmas gift of all, a gift that never
wears out and never goes out of style-- memories.
Merry Christmas to all!

Santa's missing reindeer
Regarding Santa's eight tiny reindeer, including Rudolph,
Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner and
Blizten.
Why is it that some of these people display only two reindeer,
four reindeer or six reindeer, when Santa had eight tiny rein-
deer?
Also, we are in a bait-and-switch society. It's called, "The
asterisk got it right." The people in customer service are misin-
formed. They do not know the details we are given. They want
to sell us something, and when it comes to contract, we have
surprises.
We have got to learn to ask the right questions and look for
the asterisk. Ask the questions; customer service people are
well informed to give us the right answers to our questions.

Mother says thief should be ashamed
I am writing because someone has made me very upset. I had
my Little Tykes table and chairs in my front yard next to my
house with our camping stuff and a lot of stuff that was in stor-
age because our old house was damaged by the hurricanes. I
used to use my little table and chairs to wait for my bus in the
morning and to play games outside with my dad. I am autistic.
I am afraid because somebody came in our yard right to my
door and stole my table. I keep looking to see if it came back. It
isn't ever there and that makes me cry. I am so sad. I miss my
table very much.
My family lived in a FEMA camper for a long time, and I
couldn't have any of my toys that I used to have. I could only
have a few toys when I lived in the FEMA camper because it was
so small.
I used to put Santa's letter and snack on my table, and if my
table is gone, I don't know how Santa will find my letter and his
cookies. Please bring me back my table. It isn't polite to steal. I
promise I will forgive you if you say sorry.
Jesse
Whoever you are, you should be ashamed of yourself. If you
have a conscience, please put the table back and you will have
no reprisals. Please find it in your heart to restore peace to my
autistic son. It is bad enough that there are thieves out there,
but when they take something that is obviously a child's proper-
ty, that is about as low as you can get.
Christmas is always a maybe occasion for us because we are
poor, and what he did have got taken. My son doesn't under-
stand why.
Jesse's mom

A kind gesture brought
years of happiness
I come from a large family where all
Christmases have something memo-
rable about them. However, I think
that my most memorable was Christ-
mas 1997 10 years ago this Christ-
mas.
When I.went to make a payment on
some furniture I had on layaway, I met
a new salesman, and we hit it off. He
was single, and I was recently wid-
owed. We talked whenever I was in the
store, so I knew ihat he was new in
town and had no family here.
It just happened that my family was
gathering at my house that year for
Christmas. Thinking that as a recent
widow it could very easily be me in a
new town and all alone for Christmas, I
called him on Christmas Eve and
asked if he would like to join us for din-
ner.
The salesman accepted my offer, and
we all had a very nice Christmas. My
family is fortunate that we all get
along, so family gatherings are pleas-
ant. He later told me that he sat in my
armchair watching what seemed to
him to be a modern Norman Rockwell
Christmas.
We've spent every Christmas since
then together; since 2001, we've spent
them as husband and wife. I never had
children of my own, but I became a
wife, mom and grandma all at once in
2001. Because of what it meant to each
of us, we always make sure that our
friends with no family in town know
that they are welcome in our home for
any holiday.
Christmas 1997 is my most memo-
rable because it was the beginning of
my life as it is today. Just remember: If
you treat people kindly just because it's
right, you never know where that kind-
ness might lead.
Merry Christmas to everyone.

Christmases tend toward sameness.
Two Christmases in Taiwan and Nige-
ria are worth remembering for con-
trast. Call them "Bad Santa" Christ-
mases.
I was Santa Claus at the Asian Veg-
etable Research and Development
Center in Taiwan. Santa giving gifts to
children of staff families was com-
bined with an adult party. High spirits
spurred by spirits caused my Claus
character to emerge as more "dirty old
man" than "jolly old elf."



Christmas 1997 is my most memorable because it was
the beginning of my life as it is today. Just remember: If you
treat people kindly just because ifs right, you never know
where that kindness might lead.
Merry Christmas to everyone.


Rene Kelly
Port Orange
My wife, Nancy, reminded me (the
next day) that I said at least three
times, "Ho, ho, ho. Come here, little
girl, and sit on Santa's lap."
"Thai was not a little girl, Jack! That
was Jean Poulos Dr. Poulos! She
needs to find herself a boyfriend!"
Four years later in 1997, I volun-
teered to be Santa at the International
Institute of Tropical Agriculture in
Nigeria. When I told Nancy, she said,
"Oh no! You've been there, blew that!
Besides, you abhor children! Any like
thereof, often said, is like 'parboiled or
fried!'"
"When did you get this idea? Con-
templating the universe or during your
daily bar bash with your Brit buddies?"
"They said I'd make a great Father
Christmas, thank you very much."
"You'll 'make' alright! Listen, St. Nick,
you make this bed, and you'll lie in it
for a long time! Alone! Comprende?"
,A salient silence followed.
Finally, "Maybe I'm not the Father
Christmas type. I think I'll go contem-
plate the universe. Let some dancing
sugarplums clear my head. Ho, ho, ho
and away I go. I know what you mean,
jellybean."

My Christias memories
Christmas is my favorite holiday of
the year. With each child, our Christ-
mases got better. The sounds of laugh-
ter and the pitter-patter of little feet as
they screamed with delight: "Mommy,
daddy, Santa Claus came! Wake up,
wake up!"
Christmas was not just giving and
receiving gifts; we went to midnight
Mass and church every Sunday. We cel-
ebrated the birth of Christ. With faith
comes peace, and that's what it's all
about.
Every year, we would walk through
deep snow into the woods and pick out
a tree and cut it down. I loved the fresh
smell of a Christmas tree; it filled every
room of our house. When the tree was
decorated and the star was put on top,
we knew we had the best tree in town.
With the sounds of "Silver Bells,"


"White Christmas" and "Rudolph The
Red-Nose Reindeer" from our radio,
the children and I would make Christ-
mas cookies. I'd give them each a small
paint brush and put red, white, yellow
and green frosting in; small dishes.
They would paint their own cookies. As
I write this story and close my eyes, I
can still see the different colors of
frosting on their little hands and faces.
There were many great memories
with my family. My daughter and I
went Christmas caroling door-to-door,
bringing smiles to the elderly on early
Christmas Eve, with hot chocolate
waiting for us, tobogganing and ice
skating, and making snowmen was a
family must.
Every Christmas Eve, we would have
all my family together to celebrate,
drinking their favorite eggnog and lots
of goodies to eat.
By Christmas morning, there were
the sounds of the pitter-patter of little
feet running in to wake us up:
"Mommy, daddy, Santa Claus came!
Wake up, wake up!"

An awesome Christmas

On Dec. 24, many years ago in
Upland, snow had fallen all day. Elec-
tricity had not come to rural Indiana
yet. The hill below the two-story farm-
house was an untouched white palette
bordered by its hushed creek, frozen
solid.
There were outside chores to be
done on the eve of Christmas, and my
aunt and uncle bundled up in galash-
es, mufflers, thick overcoats, mittens
and sock caps to bring the cows up
from the pasture to the barn for the
evening milking. I was a small child left
in the house so as not to freeze and
told not to light the gas lamps until
they came back.
Daylight faded, stars came out, there
was light in the family room from a sil-
very scrolled potbelly stove with an
isinglass window reflecting a rosy glow.
The wood kitchen range radiated heat.
In the closed-off icy dining room, a

Memories
From page A6
pork cake made a month in advance, pies and candies filled
the dining room table. Upstairs there were deep, empty
chilled feather beds in bedrooms where mysterious icy etch-
ings were building up inside the windowpanes and only the
heat from a child's hand could press and melt them.
I looked out a north kitchen window, a child fearfully alone
as the dark deepened and swirling crystals tapped-tapped on
the glass. How long was it before I saw far-off lanterns bob-
bing toward the house through new drifts? Years.
At last, back on the porch, stamping snow from their boots,
their voices warm and comforting, were my dear farm folks.
Not lost, but found. Christmas happened with the sound of
those long ago footsteps; hugs, laughter, care, love and riches
were restored. I wanted for nothing else.
In the inner warmth in the house, together, candles were lit
celebrating the birthday of the baby Jesus. At that moment,
at that age, I knew glory.
A lonely farmhouse on a distant hill glowed in the night,
memorized in my heart to this day.

Lessons learned in Vietnam
The weather was hot, humid and laid upon us like a large
and heavy wet blanket. We were in Vietnam; this was 1965.
Midway in the month of November 1965, we were told:
"You're all going home and will be home for Christmas." We
were beyond happy; we had survived and were going home.
November came and went, December started to tick away,
slow day after slow day, and there was no word about our
rotation back to the families we longed to see.
I was a staff sergeant, and as such, was in charge of several
men and had already served five years in the military.
I'll never forget the date Dec. 12, 1965 a unit forma-
tion was called, and the news was broken to us: We were stay-
ing in Vietnam to reinforce an operation soon to take place.
Christmas approached, and I made contact with my wife
by using a cassette tape (we didn't write letters) and broke the
news to her that I was staying in Nam for an undetermined
period of time.
Christmas came, and low and behold, at 5:30 a.m. Christ-
mas Day, we were hit by mortars, and attempts were made to
get through our wire and into our camp. They did not get in,
but we lost four men and had several wounded.
That was the day I grew up and went from a 22-year-old to a
50-year-old.
The next day was quiet. We had church services, and
we wept for those who would no longer celebrate Christmas.
We were the lucky ones.
It wasn't until March 1966 that we came home. In the time
between Christmas and March 1966, we lost a few more, but
those of us who survived learned a big lesson: Appreciate
what you have and never lose sight that home is as close as
your memories.
Memorable? Yes, because it makes me so thankful that I
survived, and I pray each day for those doing what I did, but
in another place far removed from home in Iraq and
Afghanistan.
I will never forget Christmas 1965, but I will never forget
Christmas 1966.1 I was home and with my wife.
God bless America and those who serve her.

Mayor's Choice Award and
placed first in the adult
organizations category for
their float in the Port Orange
Christmas Parade held Dec.

The theme for the parade
was "Sea, Sand and Snow."
The float was designed by Ida
Collins and displayed a large
sun with an elf relaxing in a
hammock between two palm
trees at a sandy beach with a
large wave rolling onto the
beach.
A large sandman was dis-
played in three stages: melt-
ing down to only a hat, a
snail shell nose, palm frond
arms and a scarf in the sand.
At the opposite end of the
float, a large snowman was
illustrated ii three stages:
melting down to a hat, a car-
rot nose, stick arms and a
scarf into the surrounding
snow.
Red, white and blue foil
gift-wrapped boxes were
scattered on the float and in
the bed of the tow truck.
VFW Post 3282 offers its
uniformed honor guard for
city functions and elevates
the burial ceremonies of
deceased veterans of the mil-

The post's 1,200 members
make it the fourth largest

vard will take place in two

said.
The academy introduces
students to the digital work-
place and related career
opportunities, said teacher
and sponsor, Dru Urquhart.
The 55 students enrolled in
the academy also are mem-
bers of the robotics team.
It's not just about building
robots, she said. Students
develop skills in engineer-.
ing, programming, digital
design and game strategy,
Mrs. Urquhart said. The
teenagers work on the proj-
ect after school as well as
many weekends, she said.
"This is learning outside
the classroom," she said.
Given a box of parts, stu-
dents build remote- con-
trolled robots to perform
tasks such as picking up
rings and threading them on
poles. They also program
robots to perform
autonomous tasks such as
pushing or pulling objects
without the use of remote
controls, Mrs. Urquhart
said.
"The academy furthers
their knowledge of robot-
ics," she said, "but also
allows students to work
together as a team."
Students from area
schools travel within the

It's a process of trial and

Safety
From page A3
*Do not place the tree
close to a heat source,
including a fireplace or heat
vent. The heat will dry out
the tree and cause it to
ignite more easily by the
heat, flame or sparks.
*Never put tree branches
or needles in a fireplace or
wood-burning stove.
*Regularly check the tree
for fresh, green needles.
Trees that have dried out
over several weeks burn
faster than fresh, well-
watered trees. Keep trees
watered at all times.
*When the tree becomes
dry, discard it promptly.
Trees that have been put up
right after Thanksgiving
should be taken down the
week after Christmas. After
New Year's Eve, even the
most well-watered tree can
become a fire hazard.
*Only use UL-listed light-
ing. Look for the holograph-
ic UL on light strings and
electrical decorations. The
UL means that UL engi-
neers have tested samples
of the product for safety
hazards. The green holo-
graphic UL denotes indoor
use only. The red holo-
graphic UL denotes indoor
and outdoor use.
*Inspect all electrical dec-
orations, new or old, before
plugging them in. Cracked
sockets and frayed, bare or
loose wires can cause shock
or start a fire. Replace dam-
aged items with new, UL-
listed decorations.
CInspect lights each year
for frayed wire, bare spots,
gaps in the insulation, bro-
ken or cracked sockets and
excessive kinking or wear.
*Do not overload outlets.
Connect strings of lights to
an extension cord before
plugging cord into outlet.


*Do not leave lit holiday
lights unattended.
*Take down lights after 90
days to prevent damage
from weather conditions
and neighborhood animals.
*Keep candles, matches
and lighters out of the reach
of children. Do not leave
children unattended in a
room with lit candles.
*Make sure lit candles are
in stable holders and place
them where they cannot be
knocked over easily.
*Never leave the house
with candles burning.

High School Students from Volusia County and Orange County competed in the Daytona
Robot Fest Dec. 15. The event held at Spruce Creek High School was presented by the
school's Academy of Information Technology and Engineering and Daytona Robotics.


encouraged, said Christina
Spradlin, New Smyrna
Beach High School teacher
and sponsor of the school's
Burning Smyrna's robotic
team.
"The students grow in self
confidence and ability," she
said, by actually trying dif-
ferent methods. "We get our
hands dirty all the time," she
said.
New Smyrna Beach High
School freshman Charles
Michaux, 15, often takes
things apart and rebuilds
them, something his family
can appreciate, he said.
"My dad can't even prop-
erly hook up the stereo," he
said, laughing.
Kyla Ritchie, 16, said she
got hooked on robotics by
accident. Last year, her older
brother, Kegan, who also
provided.her ride home from
Spruce Creek High School,
joined the robotics team.
"I was going to get stuck
after school with no ride,"
she said laughing, so she
joined.
Robotics has become a
family affair with her father,
Wallace Ritchie, volunteering
as a coach, mother, Deborah,
helps out with team paper-
work and younger brother


Killian, 14, programs.
In addition to Kyla, the
three-member girl's team
includes Kayla Jaramillo, 14,
and junior, Kkalla Kane,
coached by teacher, Michelle
Kelley.
The girls named their
robot K-Bot because of all
the Ks in their team mem-
ber's names.
Kayla, who wants to pur-
sue aeronautical engineering
at Embry Riddle Aeronauti-
cal University, said strategy
and alliances are key in com-


petitions because additional
points are racked up by com-
plex robot tasks and teams
are paired with another team
for one round. At a previous
competition, however, sim-
plicity won out.
"We did the simplest
things and we won," she
said.
Meanwhile, it's back to
work for the robotic team as
the RobotFest was merely a
warm-up for a statewide
competition in Tampa, Jan.
19, Mrs. Urquhart said.

with while smoking crack
cocaine. Mr. Sanders and his
girlfriend, 32-year-old
Shelley Hackett had been at
a home on Silk Oaks drive in
Ormond-by-the-Sea, but left
after a fight broke out. The
next morning, Mr. Sanders'
body was found in the river.
Deputies couldn't immedi-
ately find Ms. Hackett but
the investigation led back to
the Silk Oaks Drive home.
They say Mr. Sanders
returned to the home,
smoked crack cocaine with
two residents then got into
another argument with
them.
Deputies say 29-year-old
Barry Gallagher and 28-year-
old David Marrow beat Mr.
Sanders, dropped a 5-
pound weight on his head,
rolled him in a rug and drove
him to the river. Mr. Sanders
was still alive according to
investigators, so the men
held him underwater until
he was dead.
The two face first-degree
murder charges. Mr.
Sanders' girlfriend was later
found safe and according to
investigators was not
involved in the killing.
The body count continued
when Daytona Beach police
found a young woman dead
in her apartment on Oak
Street near Bethune-
Cookman University. She's
been identified as 23-year -
old Stacey Ann Jasmin
Hernandez and police
believe she'd been dead
several days when the
landlord, concerned that the
woman hadn't been seen,
called police. Ms. Hernandez
was found wrapped in a
sheet in the bathtub and
there were signs of a struggle
inside. The body was so
badly decomposed that
authorities still don't know
how she died.
Red Tide continued to
aggravate residents and
destroy marine life this past
week.
The red tide algae delivers
a toxin that irritates people,
causing us to cough and
sneeze and rub our eyes. It
has recently been so strong,
particularly along New
Smyrna Beach, that the
shoreline has been virtually
deserted.
But while red tide is a
bother for us, it has no real
lasung impact on people.
Marine life is another story.
As of this writing, 10 dol-
phins have washed up dead
from New Smyrna Beach
south into Brevard County.
WESH 2 was there when an
adult bottle-nosed female
washed in just south of the


Hiles Street approach. We
found a fetus not far from
the mother with an umbili-
cal cord still attached and
Hubbs Seaworld experts
believe that red tide can lead
to mammal miscarriages.
Scientists can't yet be sure if
red tide is responsible for the
dolphin deaths, but Hubbs
Seaworld's Megan Stolen
says it's more than likely. The
dolphins breathe in the
toxin, swim in it and feed on
infected fish. Stolen says the
dolphins have similar lung
damage that may be attrib-
uted to red tide.
What's unclear and
alarming for the experts is
that they can't be sure if this
is the end of the problem or
just the beginning. They
worry that if the red tide
bloom hangs around, there
could be dozens of dolphin
deaths. Turtles, fish and sea
birds also have succumbed,
their carcasses littering the
beach. Biologists are hoping
samples taken from the
dolphins will tell them
conclusively what killed
them.
An Edgewater man was
killed in South Daytona
when he lost control of his
motorcycle on Nova Road,
struck a utility pole and a
wooden sign, then smashed
into the front plate glass
window of Cline's Stamped
Concrete business.
Norman Holding, 65, was
rushed to the hospital but
died there. Investigators
don't know why Mr. Holding
lost control of the motorcy-
cle. It doesn't appear speed
or alcohol was a factor in the
crash. Investigators say Mr.
Holding was not wearing a
helmet.
Edgewater police say a
woman's poor judgment
sparked a search for an
attempted kidnapper.
Ten-year-old Kevon
Jefferson was walking to the
school bus stop on Umbrella
Tree Drive when a woman in
a minivan stopped in the
road and asked him if he
wanted a ride. The boy said
she seemed persistent, even
telling him she wouldn't hurt
him.
Police say Kevon, schooled
in stranger danger, did the
right thing, running away
and telling his bus driver
and school officials, who
called police. It turned out
that the stranger was a
woman who lives in the area.
.. She told police she thought
the boy was running late
under a hot sun and just
wanted to help. She says she
now realizes it was a mistake
to approach a child she
doesn't know.

burglar made off with cash,

after hiding in a Kangaroo
Express convenience store
on U.S 1 near Ormond
Beach after closing. The thief
hid in the ceiling, disabling
the security alarm and the
store surveillance system.
Once the store closed for
the night, sheriff's investiga-
tors say the suspect helped
himself to the loot, taking
cash from the store's ATM.
The thief was briefly caught
on surveillance before it was
disabled, but so far, authori-
ties haven't caught up with
him.
It had been derelict in the
river for more than two
months but finally a 30-foot
motorboat was towed out of
the intercoastaljust south of
the Granada Bridge. The city
has to pay the tow company
but hopes to recoup the loss
because the owner, who lives
in Deltona, faces a misde-
meanor charge. The owner
claimed he would tow the
boat, but week after week, it
sat listing in the waterway.
The salvage company says
the boat is a total ruin.
Seven employees from
Florida Hospital in Ormond
Beach and Palm Coast
literally let their hair down to
help sick children. The
women agreed t6 have their
hair cut and donated to the

threatening illnesses.
The women had to have at
least 10 inches to donate and

gave each woman a new
style and all left feeling
fantastic about the "hair-
raising" experience.
A Daytona Beach police
officer is on the wrong side
of the law after police say he
stole evidence from a vehicle
he'd been assigned to check
for drug activity.
Officer Robert Rush, 29, a
member of the department's
crime suppression team,

other team members in
recent weeks. They believed

the officer was assigned to

veteran turned a crack pipe
into evidence, but not the
cash. He was repeatedly
asked during his shift if
anything else was recovered
during the van search and
officials say he told them
"no" more than once.
The officer was on his way
home when he was stopped
by IA officers and told to
empty his pockets. Even
then, he denied having any
money on him, but finally
said he had $90 from the van
that he meant to log as

Tourists find inspiration, sights in Jerusalem, Bethlehem


I started going to
Jerusalem in 1994 and
I've never stopped
going.
It's my favorite city in the
world and I fell in love with
it immediately.
It was easier getting
around Jerusalem then,
but once the 2000 Intifada
began everything changed.
You had to be very careful,
but I still never stopped
going, even when few
tourists walked the streets
and the hotels were nearly
empty. I felt safe, but the
sadness was palpable.
Everyone wanted peace,
but the question was and
still is, how to achieve it.
Today, times are better
and Jerusalem is having a
resurgence of tourism. It's
a great place to experience
history, culture and
spirituality, but for me it's
the cross-cultural mix
that's so dynamic. It means
people don't always get
along, but that's often been
Jerusalem's story. It's a
work in progress and when


I'm there I feel part of it.
Whenever I go, I try to
stay at the historic Mount
Zion Hotel, just a brief
walk from Jerusalem's Old
City. I hope for a room with
a balcony overlooking the
ancient city walls, which
are lit up at night. In the
morning I wait for the
sunrise over the Judean
Hills and Mount of Olives.
Then my day begins with a
huge kosher breakfast and
a quick walk to Zion Gate.
The Old City is sur-
rounded by high walls
erected by Sulieman, in
1537 A.D. with eight gates
for entering. It's fun to take
the Rampart's walking tour
atop the walls for a great
view.
My first stop is tradition-
ally at Mary's Church of
Dormition. It's a beautiful
place honoring Mary's
eternal rest, with a daily
service for peace. There's
also a fine gift shop and a
tearoom serving great
cocoa for those windy
Jerusalem days.

Travel columnist
From there, I often walk
to King David's Tomb or
the site of the Last Supper.
Next, I enter the Jewish
quarter and the cardo,
once a Roman market-
place. I pass synagogues,
underground archeological
museums, upscale shops,
delicious bakeries and my
friend, Buddy's deli for a
sandwich or some chicken
soup. After lunch, I'm off to
the Wailing Wall, leaving


my prayers for peace,
written on tiny scraps of
paper and placed in the
cracks of the wall with
other prayers. At the base
of King Solomon's Temple,
there's a new museum
about the site and tourists
are encouraged to explore
the ancient ruins.
From the Wailing Wall, I
like to visit the Temple
Mount, El Aqsa Mosque
and the beautiful Dome of
the Rock. During the
Intifada, the site was
closed to non-Muslims,
but now it's opened again,
another sign of progress.
Next, I walk into the Arab
quarter where everything
under the sun is sold. On
my way, I pass the Stations
of the Cross, marking the
path Jesus took before his
crucifixion. Then I'm off to
the Church of St. Anne, a
lovely place dedicated to
Mary's mother. The
acoustics of the church are
perfect, so visitors are
invited to sing anytime.
Beautiful gardens and


ancient ruins surround the
church. It's thought Jesus
performed many miracles
here.
Then I head to the


Christian quarter and the
Church of the Holy
Sepluchre, marking Jesus'

Christmas, my mother
would always say, "Now this
year, don't buy me anything
for Christmas. I mean it."
And each year, my father
would buy her presents, and
she would buy him presents.
As she would open each pres-
ent, she would say, "You
shouldn't have bought me
this," or "I told you that I did-
n't need any presents this
year!"
But we all recognized that
she was pleased with gifts.
One particular year, when I
was 12, she was quite insis-
tent with my dad, my brother
and I that we not get her any-
thing.
On Christmas morning, we
were all gathered around the
Christmas tree, opening our
presents. There was nothing
under the tree for my mom.
My father had taken her for
her word. She broke into
tears.
He apologized to her pro-
fusely, saying it was because
she had been so insistent that
no one get her anything. Well,
she just sat there and cried.
My brother hadn't gotten her
a gift either.
My heart just broke at see-
ing her cry. I cried out that I
had a present for her. And I
had, but it was still hidden.
My father told me to go get it,
but unfortunately, I forgot
where. I looked and looked,
but couldn't find it.
I -returned empty-handed
and told my mom that I was
sorry that I couldn't find her
Christmas present, but that I
really had gotten her one.
I found it the next day
under my bed wrapped in its
Christmas paper. In my hurry
on Christmas Day, I had not
looked there carefully
enough. She thanked me for
it, but I could see by the look
in her eyes that it wasn't the
same because it was now the
day after Christmas.
This was my mother's year
of not having Christmas pres-
ents on Christmas Day. It
never happened again.
Lew Dallas


and the American School
custodian and I had made
the props and set for the
church's Christmas produc-
tion. We had made the
facade of the inn and a stable
and some storefronts includ-
ing a bread store (Bethlehem
was the "City of Bread").
There was a natural knoll
to the right and somewhat
behind our "street scene."
On Christmas Eve, the
Christian community gath-
ered to watch their children
and friends act out the
Nativity story.
About a half hour before
the pageant was to begin,
huge snowflakes showered
down. The snow created a
sort of ethereal screen
through which we watched
the story unfold. We were no
longer in Afghanistan but in
Bethlehem as we watched
pregnant Mary riding on a
donkey with Joseph walking
beside her into town. They
knocked on the door of the
inn. A window on the upper
level opened, and the
innkeeper turned them
away. Joseph pleaded that
the baby was about to be
born, so the innkeeper
pointed them to the stable.
Over to the right, we saw
the shepherds with a flock of
real sheep. We saw the angel
appear and give them the
good news. We saw the mul-
titude of angels on the knoll
singing. We watched the
shepherds come to the sta-
ble and pay homage to Jesus.
We saw three kings on
camels bring gifts. The snow
"curtain" made it impossible
to identify the characters'
true identities. It was as if we
were transported back 2,000
years and were there seeing
the actual event.
That was a Christmas our
family will never forget.

burial place. As you near
the church you can buy
religious items, including
candles, incense and
icons.
If you continue walking
through the winding
streets you'll eventually
come to the Armenian
quarter with its colorful
bazaars. Located here is
my friend, Basim's spice
shop. I love to sit and have
a cup of tea with him,
taking in all the sights and
smells of his wares.
Then as I exit the
labyrinth of the Old City, I
head towards Jaffa Gate.
Suddenly, I'm at the
Citadel of David Museum.
It's a fascinating place,
dedicated to Jerusalem
and its endless history of
conquests.
On my last trip to
Jerusalem, I was walking
back to the hotel when I
ran into Charlie (a part-
time bartender and guide).
He told me Bethlehem had
just been opened up to
tourists again and did I
want to go? Of course!

endless checkpoints the
next day, we drove into the
Palestinian city of Bethle-
hem, arriving at the
Church of the Nativity. I
hadn't been there since
1994, but I was thrilled to
return and knew it signi-
fied progress. Many
Palestinians thanked me
for coming and hoped that
others would follow soon.
That's the thing about
cities such as Jerusalem
and Bethlehem. They
endure through the best
and worst of times.
Luckily, times are better
now and tourism is
increasing. I'm hoping to
return this spring and who
knows, maybe 2008 will be
a year for real peace.

Christmas season is all about giving, sharing


If all of us would sit down
with our kids and ask
them what Christmas is
about, most of them would
say it's about Santa Claus
and presents. Hopefully,
many children will remem-
ber it is the time of year
when we celebrate Jesus'
birthday.
But we all know what
secret hopes are driving the
lives of our children
throughout the month of
December, the thoughts
that course their little minds
at Christmas from dawn 'til
dusk: "What will I get?"
Most of us experienced
the same great level of
anticipation and fervor for
Christmas as little kids
ourselves. I also know that
as a parent one of my
greatest joys this time of
year is purchasing, wrap-
ping and proudly displaying
many fine gifts for my
children. It's the time of year
when parents get to say
"yes" to their children's
longing for the latest toy or
gadget, and what a feeling
that is as a parent to know
that the very thing they've
been hoping for is sitting

Parenting
right there, wrapped neatly
beneath the tree. Our gift is
watching them open theirs,
seeing their joy-filled eyes
and the sweet hugs and
kisses that follow.
Having said all that, I'd
like to bring to light an old
idea sometimes forgotten in
the hustle of all the "getting"
we need to accomplish for
our own family's Christmas.
We need to remind our-
selves and our children that
this is the time of year for
giving, not just to our
friends and family, but to
make it our goal, in each of


our homes, to give to
someone who is truly needy.
Stop for just a second and
think what our world would
be like if each of us, in our
own little family, made it
our goal at Christmas time
to find a way to reach out to
the needy. Wow! Many of us
are blessed as Americans
that we can provide a few
nice gifts for our children at
Christmas, but what must it
feel like to wake up on
Christmas morning with
little or nothing to offer your
children?
Next time you're out
shopping, keep these
thoughts in your mind. How
must that feel? I hope I
never know, but in the
meantime, I wonder what I
can do to help.
Someday, when your
children are grown, what do
you want them to be like?
Will yours be the type to
stop and drop a few coins
into the Salvation Army's
bucket on their way into the
store? Will they be the type.
to send a few dollars every
month to help a destitute
child in another country?
Will they be the type to look


for ways to help the helpless
in the world around them?
Will they feel that gentle
tugging at their hearts to
have mercy and reach out to
their fellow human being?
Or will they be the kind
who walks on by, pretending
the needy do not exist?
So back to my question:
What can you do to help?
Here's what you can do:
Make it your goal every
Christmas to give as a
family. Donate food or
volunteers for places such
as Halifax Urban Ministries
or the Salvation Army,
participate in Operation
Christmas Child, or pick an
"angel" off a tree atWal-
Mart to shop for.
There are even ministries
that allow you to purchase
farm animals for needy
families overseas. These
animals will give milk and
eggs for these needy
families and help them with
farming.
I'm sure you can find
many other ways to give to
the needy; these are just a
few, but find a way to give
and give! When you do give,
talk to your children about


what life must be like for a
needy child at Christmas
and how hard things are for
needy families this time of
year. Then discuss what
your family is doing to help.
Talk about these things with
your children, and you will
get a very great gift indeed;
you will bring up a child
who will look with compas-
sion on the world around
him. You will have done
your part.
Merry CHRISTmas to you
all!


One last thing, when you
think about how much to
give, remember that Christ
gave His all. Now, what will
you give?
"He who gives to the poor
will lack nothing, but he
who closes his eyes to them
receives many curses,"
Proverbs 28:27.

Summer season

at Seaside to sizzle


Lineup to include 'Les Miserables'A


BY STEPHANIE DIXON
Entertainment writer


When Lester Malizia, artistic director
of the Seaside Music Theater, sat down JB
to create the summer season
lineup, he wanted to put -"e
together shows that had wide '
ranging appeal.
"We've been trying to get Les
Miserables to the area for years, and
'Peter Pan' was such a success so we
wanted to get 'The Wizard of Oz' here," J
he said. "And were trying to develop new
musicals. 'Backwards in High Heels' sold
out in South Florida. The season's going to be
dynamite."
The season will open May 23 with the children's
show "Miss Nelson is Missing."
"Les Miserables" is based on the French novel
by Victor Hugo that follows the lives of several
French characters over a 20-year period in the
early 19th century. The show will appear June 12.
The timeless favorite "The Wizard of Oz" will run
from July 10-27. And much like last season's Peter
Pan, Mr. Malizia reveals there will be flying characters
on stage.
A new musical called "Backwards in High Heels"
will open July 31. The production is about the life of
Ginger Rogers, the longtime dance partner of hoofer
Fred Astaire.
The final show will be an off-Broadway musical
called "Alter Boyz," featuring satirical songs such as
"Jesus Called Me On My Cell Phone."

strong, as usual. Commitments from

munity speaks clearly about this great-
est of blessings. Take time during the

Bucs continue to rebuild


BY ANITA BEVINS
Sports writer

After winning only 12
games in three years, the
Mainland boys' basketball
team has notched two wins,
including one district victory,
in five games this season
under the direction of head
coach Stacy Beckton.
"I'm trying to instill in
them to take one game at a
time, whether it is a district
game or a regular season
game," Beckton said. "Every
game is critical in the
rebuilding process. And I
have told them that nobody
said it would be easy,and
nobody said it would happen
overnight."
Beckton, a former
Bethune-Cookman Universi-
ty assistant, has been
involved with Mainland bas-
ketball long enough to
remember the glory years.
And that's where he wants to
lead this program again.
"We do have an excellent
brand of basketball here,"
Beckton said. "We had a
great crowd for the Seabreeze
game, and I hope that is a
good indication of what is
going to happen."
Beckton knows that large
crowds will congregate for
rivalry games and for a
chance to see some talented


athletes on the court. And he
believes he has the kind of
talent that will turn some
heads.
"Cortez Davis is a phenom
freshman," Beckton said.
"He has the ability to be the
next great superstar in Volu-
sia County if he stays on
course with fundamentals. I
put him up there with the
Mainland greats Vince
Carter, T.T. Tolliver and Joe
Giddens."
The 6-foot-4-inch forward
put up a season-high 25 in a
three-point loss to Seabreeze,
just three weeks after playing
safety on the district champi-
on and regional quarterfinal
winning varsity football
team.
Davis is surrounded by a
sound group of seniors,
including 6-foot-2-inch
guard Robert King, the team's
leading scorer.
"He leads by example,"
Beckton said. "I used him as
my example guy in practice
to lead them through drills.
He is also an outstanding
academic student. I'm look-
ing for big things from him
the rest of the year."
John Theodore, a 6-foot
football star, also plays guard
for the basketball team.
"He brings a lot of leader-
ship and energy coming off
the football field," Beckton


said. "He is tough, and that
always helps."
Junior forward Shedrick
Morrison averages 6.4
rebounds and 6.8 points per
game while keying on the
opponent's offensive leader.
."He does all of the dirty
work inside," Beckton said.
"He usually has the toughest
offensive player from the
other team to defend, so he
has a tough job."
Senior Bakari James, a 6-
foot guard, leads the Bucs in
three-point goals, sinking 14
in seven games, and averag-
ing 11.1 points per outing.
Off the bench, Beckton looks
to senior guard Jonny Martin
and junior Kentrail Gardner.
"We have great team
chemistry, Beckton said.
"Overall, we have a really
good team. Of our 12 guys,
Nos. 1 through 12 all have an
opportunity to play. It's just
putting guys in the right posi-
tions for us to get some
wins."
Mainland travels to Eustis
Friday night for a non-dis-
trict game. During the holi-
day break, the Bucs have
three full days of basketball
scheduled as they host the
Vince Carter Classic, Dec.
27-29.

Embry-Riddle basketball


undefeated in 10 starts


BY ANITA BEVINS
Sports writer
Eight points is a very tight
game if you are a member
of the Embry-Riddle Aero-
nautical University basket-
ball program.
That is the closest any
competitor has come to
beating the Eagles in their
first nine games this season.
Sure, the College of the
Bahamas only scored 58
points while ERAU put up
119 in nine games. And the
Eagles also managed triple
digits against Florida Christ-
ian and Trinity.
But against top 25 Nation-
al Association of Intercolle-
giate Athletics Division I
Carroll College of Montana,
ERAU barely squeaked by
with a 70-62 victory. That


win and a 13-point margin
over Flagler College pro-
pelled the Eagles to No. 4 in
the NAIA Division II ratings
last week.
"We're off to a good start,"
ERAU head coach Steve Rid-
der said. "We were fortu-
nate in the last two games.
Carroll College had beaten a
couple of highly ranked
teams. That was a quality
win for us. And everyone is
aware of the Flagler College
and Embry-Riddle history,
so that is always a quality
win."
"But it is still early. Non-
conference is always impor-
tant, and that helps us to get
ready for conference. But I
feel our league is better than
it ever has been. Preseason
is great to be where we are,
we are finding out a lot

The season for fishing


nook season is closed
until Feb. 1, but that
should present little
hardship. Cold water sends
snook to parts unknown or
at the very least causes them
to become lethargic.
Volusia County is on the
northern edge of the snook's
range, and they are a
precious commodity locally.
Even if you are fortunate
enough to land one within
the four-inch slot (28 to 32
inches) while they are in
season, you would be wise
to turn it back. Snook are
much too entertaining to

eat. Set it free to thrill the
next angler!
With the cooler weather,
you will need to adjust your
methods in the pursuit of
the wily red fish. At this time
of year, flats fishermen may
forsake the dawn start for
one that begins around 10
a.m. Reds will retreat into
the depths on those cold
nights, but as soon as the
midday sun heats the
skinny water a degree or
two, they will move back to
the flats with lunch in mind.
Remember, cast to the
slightest surface movement.
Sometimes, the most minor
surface tremor will belie the
big school of reds waiting
beneath the shallow water.
If you are a deep-water
fisherman, fish the drop
offs, and once again, noon
will be better than dawn.
Trout will reopen on Jan. 1


DAN SMITH
Inshore fishing
just in the nick of time. If
you have been doing any
fishing at all in the last
month, you have probably
caught some nice, fat,
spotted sea trout that you
would have loved to take
home to dinner. Of course,
the trout season closed Nov.
1. '
I am always amazed to
find that the fish are aware


of the season that was set up
in Tallahassee. Before the
trout closed, I was primarily
catching reds; now, all I am
able to catch is trout. I swear
I thought I detected a smirk
on the face of the big trout I
had to release on Nov. 3.
Since then, I have turned
back several tasty meals to
return home to a meal of
(dare I say it?) fried Publix
tilapia. Ouch!
The final insult came
when a school of trout took
up residence within casting
distance of the dock at the
end of my street. There is
usually not much there, but
I go down to cast and watch
the morning sun illuminate
the far shore over Tomoka
State Park. Now, the water
there is teeming with trout,
but I know full well that
come January, there won't
be a one.
A single positive in all this

is that there are weakfish
with the spotted trout.
There is no season on
weakfish and the keeper
length is 12 inches. Watch
for a trout with no spots
and more of a flat, silvery
color. All else will look like
the usual fish, but inside
the mouth will be much
more yellow coloration.
That's it for this week. I
hope you all have a nice
Christmas with family
and friends. Remember,

arrive just after the holidays,
when ERAU travels to Flori-
da Memorial in Opa Locka
for its first conference con-
test. The Fighting Lions
return every player from its
NAIA playoff team last year,
including last year's Florida
Sun Conference Player of
the Year, Tramaine Stevens.
"Our conference has
turned into one of the pre-
miere conferences at the
NAIA level," Ridder said.
"The top of the list is obvi-
ously Northwood, going out
and getting an accom-
plished coach (Rollie Mas-
simino) from Division I. He
is loaded with returning tal-
ent. All they did last year
was go out and win the con-
ference in his first year. But
he is amazed at the parity
and strength of the confer-
ence at this level."
The Eagles have the talent
to upset that parity this year.
After all, Northwood is the
only other FSC team in the
top 25 right now, and they
sit 16 spots back in the rat-
ings.
That is because ERAU has
assembled some talent that
has gelled well. Ridder
"loves" the team chemistry.
William Benjamin, Eric
Lorenzi, Rocky Pierre, Ryan
Ridder, Denver Cobb and
Tyler Debord are simply get-
ting it done.
Ridder said Debord has "a
chance to be the very best
player we have ever had
here." Averaging a team-
high 17.3 points per game,
the 6-foot 5-inch junior for-
ward also has blocked 14
shots this season.
"I don't like to give up lay-
ups," Debord said. "I like to
come around the weak side
and when my teammates


take them to the basket, I
clean up anything that gets
away."
Daytona Beach's Denver
Cobb averages 16.8 points
per game, and after 40
attempts at the free throw
line, the 6-foot 1-inch guard
has a .925 average, missing
only three free throws.
"I worked on just being a
good shooter," the former
Atlantic High and Father
Lopez player said. "I try to
make a concerted effort to
get to the free throw line
because I shoot a high per-
centage."
He also likes the three-
point line, and after 40
attempts he has scored 18
threes, averaging, a, team-,
high .450.
Another Father 'Lopez
alumni, senior guard Ryan
Ridder has a bit of an advan-
tage. As the son of coach
Ridder, Ryan grew up with
the system. That familiarity
and Ryan's talent has creat-
ed 23 steals and a positive
assist turnover ratio on his
stat sheet.
"If you have a point guard
who has a positive assist-
turnover ratio of 2-1 you are
getting it done," coach Rid-
der said. "If you have three,
then you are really, really
good. He is over four. If you
are at that assist-to-
turnover ratio, then you are
one of the best in the coun-
try. He has been off the
chart there. He just doesn't
turn it over."
ERAU hosts three holiday

/ Good news for Home Buyers from America's #1 fastest growing Real Estate Company!
Earn big dollars when you buy your home through our new
Help-U-SelP SmartBuys Buyer Program! (

How the program works:
Traditional Real Estate Offices list properties for sale and negotiate a set % of the sales price as their commission.
At the close of escrow, the commission is divided between the listing office and the selling office.
The innovative Help-U-Self SmartBuy" Buyers Program offers buyers an opportunity to save thousands of dollars when partnering
with Help-U-Sell real estate agents to purchase a home listed on the MLS.

When a certified Help-U-Sell@ SmartBuySM agent helps you find your next home, at least 20% of the commission normally paid to
the buyers agent (see below) will be paid or credited to YOU, the Smart Buyer!*

The following examples show how much money you could save and use toward your closing costs, or put in your pocket for new
furnishings, paint, carpet, or whatever you choose!
