PONCE INLET A group of concerned citizens proposed a solution to councilors aimed at ending an ongoing lawsuit between the Town and a developer that could potentially bankrupt the town government. The group, calling themselves P once Inlet Citizens Who Care, pitched a settlement option at the To wn Council's November meeting calling for the Town to pay a settlement worth $13.7 million to P acetta, LLC, which would end a long and contentious legal battle between the development firm and town leaders. The citizens group's members said they negotiated the offer with P acetta property owners Lyder and S imone Johnson as a possible solution to avoid trial. The case is scheduled for a court hearing on Dec. 7, with Judge William P arsons presiding. In court, the J ohnsons are seeking damages of about $55 million, costs "attributable to the Town C ouncil's actions and decisions," according to the text of the settlement offer. That's more than the Town, which has an annual budget of about $4.5 million, is worth. "W e have great confidence in our 767-4768AUNT CATFISH Convenient for you.

The library asked participants to donate c anned goods and toiletries during the month of November to help replenish local food banks.Randy Barber staff photographer EatonPORT ORANGE Neighborhoods on the southeast part of the city have gone to the pigs. Ashton Lakes, Sterling Chase, and Pinnacle Park are among the subdivisions that recently saw landscapes on several properties destroyed by wild hogs. The hogs enter the neighborhoods through the wooded areas bordering them. When they enter, they root up residents' yards in their quest to find earthworms to eat. B arry Clark, a hog trapper hired by the City, said hogs have been a problem in the area since 2008. The former officer for the Volusia County Sheriff's Office has experience trapping hogs dating back to when he was a teenager, and worked to remove hogs in other parts of Port Orange in the past, such as in the Rose Bay area, he said. S ince the most recent outbreak of hogs in the neighborhoods, Mr. Clark trapped six, using three traps containing sweet r olls, donuts, corn and hay for bait. B ut traps are only effective in capturing the hogs until the hogs become aware of their purpose, he said. "H ogs are smart," Mr. Clark said. "If you catch five or six at one time they get the idea what's going on with these trapsW ild hogs cause problems in some neighborhoodsBy Michael SalernoF or Hometown News See HOGS, A11 Photo courtesy of Greg Deddy The yard of Greg Deddy shows the damage caused by hogs at his home in Ashton Lakes recently.VO L USIA COUNTY Dr. Ca r ol Eaton knows how valuable an associates degree can be. "I f you start at a community college, you can go anywhere including a college president," she said in a recent interview. Ms. Eaton took the reins at D aytona State College in A ugust. Her higher education started with an associates degree at a community campus, State University of New Yo rk at Cobleskill. While Daytona State no longer wears the long-familiar "community college," she said it will always be a community institution primarily responsive to changing local workforce needs. There is the part of our mission at a community college that we're preparing the workforce," she said. "A number of students come for very specific job training." Ms. Eaton capped her education with a Ph.D. in mathematics education from State U niversity of New York at Albany, and quickly headed back to the classroom, a place native to her. "I loved school," she said.

Si nce 1995, Allen has been working behind the scenes with community partners to make a difference. He is dedicated to empowering, improving and maintaining the quality of life for all persons living with HIV/AIDS. One of Allen's work duties is determining how to spend federal dollars designated for participants of the Ryan White Program in Volusia and Flagler counties. The program offers HIV positive persons assistance with services not covered under other programs. Allen is well known for his efforts in being a driving force in the efforts to expand the availability of HIV treatment, prevention, housing, advocacy and education programs to low income and disadvantaged families. A ccording to the Volusia C ounty Health Department, there are slightly more than 1,400 people living with HIV/AIDS in Volusia and F lagler counties. Florida r anks third in the number of adult AIDS cases nationwide. With AIDS being a disease that has plagued the world for the last three decades, advocates like Mr. Allen are dedicated to raising awareness and saving lives. Mr. Allen is a member of the World AIDS Week C ommittee here in Daytona B each. The committee has scheduled a number of events to recognize World AIDS Day. Mr. Allen shares his personal feelings about the AIDS epidemic, why he's working so hard to help others and why events such as W orld AIDS Day are so important. Q:Why is it rewarding for y ou to work in the AIDS field? A: It is important for me to be involved because the more we see positive influences by people that have HIV/AIDS working to end the fear and stigma of the disease, the quicker we will slow the progression of the spread of the disease. People that have experienced r ejection and intolerance are afraid and rightly so. We see violence being demonstrated towards people who have HIV, even those who are not homosexuals. Until we work together to unite with one another and to combat healthcare disparities, the more people will senselessly die. I personally find this unacceptable! I also feel that since I have lived more than 26 years with this disease while many others have not, it is my responsibility to bring about awareness in the honor of those bright individuals who are not here today to carry the torch. Q:What is World AIDS Day? A: World AIDS Day, observed Dec. 1 each year, is dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection. It is common to hold memorials to honor persons who have died from HIV/AIDS on this day. Government and health officials also observe the event, often with speeches or forums on the AIDS topics. Since 1995, the President of the United S tates has made an official proclamation on World AIDS Day. Governments of other nations have followed suit and issued similar announcements. It is also a time for me to personally r emember the bright light of the individuals that I have known who have passedLocal man continues the fight against AIDSBy Sidney SimmonsF or Hometown News See AIDS, A9

For over 50 years the Daytona Beach area has been the nation's No. 1 destination for classic car enthusiasts on the four-day Thanksgiving weekend. The Turkey R un, which is centered in the infield of D aytona International Speedway this w eekend, will host nearly 5,000 rod, custom and antique show cars. While Daytona Beach is one of the world's most recognizable trademarks for all things automotive, practically all that happens there had to first come through the small community of Ormond Beach. Most of us know the story about how auto racing began there in 1903 but few realize that the success of the land speed records set there would encourage Daytona Beach to hold their own. Men like Segrave, C ampbell, Lockhart, Keech, and De P alma set unbelievable speed r ecords on the beach and when Capt. M alcolm Campbell averaged the ultimate speed of 276 MPH in 1935 he inspired a couple of interested onlookers to develop the oval beach road track. F irst Sig Haugdahl, himself a former world record holder, and then William H. G. France, a local mechanic, took a try at using the beach for stock car r acing. The eventual result was NASCAR and the speedway. The Turkey Run (formerly The Tu r key Rod Run) also owes its origins to Ormond Beach. Back in 1958 a group of antique car owners met in that city to create The Birthplace Of S peed Association. Their plan was to hold a parade and car show each Thanksgiving weekend. It just so happened that Big Bill France was looking for some help in publicizing the first race at the new super speedway he had just built in a rural area w est of Daytona Beach. Mr. France was able to convince the men and women of The Birthplace Of Speed Association to hold their first celebration in February of 1959. After that, the event would settle into its regular schedule of the parade on Friday and the Show on Saturday after Thanksgiving. That first show in 1959 drew a most impressive array of beautifully r estored antique vehicles. There was Du ry ea's Mercers, Cords, Dusenbergs, M axwells, and many more. There was also a nice bunch of customized hot r ods at the gate. The problem was that the Birthplace Of Speed events were designed for restored or original automobiles. The disgruntled hot r odders were turned away. Having nothing better to do they moved a few miles south to the Bell Aire Shopping C enter for an impromptu show and shine. As the years passed the hot rods outgrew the originals in popularity and the number of cars at the shopping center and across the street at the La Playa Hotel would far outnumber the antiques at Ormond. Eventually the Turkey Rod Run moved to the speedway and became a national attraction. In Ormond Beach, the Gaslight Pa r ade and car show is still going strong and now in its 54th edition is one of the nation's oldest. The parade will begin at 7 p.m. on Friday night from the Casements and proceed east to A1A and then south to Harvard Ave. On Saturday, the car show will be held in Fortunato Park on the east end of the big bridge from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. The Ormond Beach Gaslight Parade and car show are both free to spectators. The Turkey Run will operate all four days. Call (386) 255-7355 for information. Our community is very fortunate to host such an internationally famous car weekend and we owe it all to the little seaside community of Ormond Beach.

ORMOND BEACH S ince starting in September on Wall Street as a localized protest against corporate greed, big-bank bailouts and income disparity, the "O ccupy" movement has quickly spread all the way across the globe. In fact, on O ct. 15, dubbed by Occupy supporters as their "Day of R age," nonviolent protests we re held in more than 80 countries worldwide. That day also marked the first big event for Occupy D aytona Beach, Volusia C ounty's local chapter. The daylong event was held at T uscawilla Park near the intersection of Nova Road and International Speedway in Daytona Beach and featured teach-ins, general assemblies, speakers and a sign-waving demonstration outside the Steak N Shake at the same intersection. Although it was the group's first event, the rally drew about 400 people throughout the day with a one-time peak of 250, said S hannon McLeish, an organizer of Occupy Daytona. "P eople hung out for the whole day, just talking and sharing stories," she said. I was very pleasantly surprised." Another indication of the event's success, Ms. McLeish said, were the several groups of motorcyclists who chose to put their Biketoberfest plans on hold to check out the event. "We weren't sure how it would work (going up against Biketoberfest), But the bikers love it," she said. Those who didn't stop were honking or revving their engines all day." S ince the Occupy Daytona F acebook page was created in September, it has amassed more than 1,400 fans. Ms. McLeish said she believes one explanation for that growth is the willingness of group members to immerse themselves within the community in order to speak their minds. "W e' ve only been at this for about a month and we're getting a great response." Ms. McLeish said. "People are definitely getting the message." Du r ing a sidewalk demonstration on the corner of W. Granada Avenue and Beach St r eet in Ormond Beach this past week, a crowd of about 35 greeted traffic with chants and signs such as "W e are the 99-Percent." "P eople over Profit." "Save the American Dream" and "H onk for Jobs." Dr ivers were quick to show their support, especially to the last request. In the hour-and-a-half the group protested, rarely would more than 10 seconds pass before another car horn blasted through the area. This came as no surprise to Ms. McLeish. "E verywhere we go we hear nothing but horns," she said. "99 percent of people agree with us because 99 percent of the country is struggling." Ev en the loudest horn in the world, however, cannot create jobs, which begs the question: How effective are these Occupy efforts? "I don't think I'm having any effect at all," sign-bearing Lisa Martin said at the Ormond Beach event. The 72-year-old has participated in dozens of political protests throughout her life, beginning with Vietnam War protests during the 1950s. "S ure, there are horns, but what are we supposed to do?" Ms. Martin said she believes the next step is to share a specific "call to action" with movement supporters. "The gove rnme nt is r esponsible for creating jobs, so our next sign should be Do X for jobs' or explaining ways to demand infrastructure jobs, for example," Ms. Martin said. Cr itics have often accused O ccupy groups of lacking focus, a critique with which Ms. Martin said she agrees. "W e need to create a clear and concise explanation of our objectives right away," she said. "Right now, we aren't really focused where we should be." M eanwhile, Occupy Daytona supporter Linda Walker of Edgewater believes the group makes strides toward progress every day by r eminding locals that these are national issues that don't stop at Wall Street. Each day, more people are starting to sense what it means to be a part of the 99 percent," Ms. Walker said. "W e can't be afraid to talk about it. We have to make this as much of an issue as we can." That is, of course, while still keeping their protest peaceful, said Mc. Leish, who admits her tempers still flare when she hears of violent interactions between protestors and law enforcement around the country. "W e firmly believe in the nonviolent protest," she said. "Still, when we see our fellow Americans maced and hit with batons, that's an outrage. That charges us up." Also frustrating, Ms. M cLeish said, is the way movement supporters are F riday, November 25, 2011 Hometown News A4Po rt Orange/Ponce Inlet So.

Over the last 15 years, the number of cell phone subscribers has increased by 1,262.4%, among who are also drivers on our roads. The use of cell phones while driving has led to an epidemic in auto accidents (called the distracted while drivingŽ phenomena.) Driving while distracted is estimated to contribute as much as 13% of all traffic crashes in the United States, while other studies put this figure as high as 25%. A2002 Harvard Center for Risk Analysis calculated that as many 330,000 people are injured every year as a result of drivers using cell phones. Shocking Statistics The statistics associated with cell phone usage and auto accidents is nothing short of shocking. In 2008 it was estimated that, at any given moment, over 800,000 Americans were making calls, texting, emailing or using a smart phone application while driving during the day. A recent US Department of Transportation Consumer Reports study recently showed that: € 63% of people under the age of 30 admitted to driving while using a cell phone € 30% admitted to sending a text message while driving € 56% of teenagers admitted to talking on cell phones while behind the wheel € 48% of American children between the age of 12 and 17 said that they had been a passenger in a car while the driver was texting € 34% of American teenagers between the age of 12 and 17 admitted to text messaging while driving € 21% of all fatal car crashes involving American teenagers between the age of 16 and 19 were the result of cell phone usage in one form or another € 50% of all drivers between the ages of 12 and 14 texting while driving € The risk of an auto or truck accident is 23 times more likely while texting As you can see from these statistics, car crashes have taken the lead as the number one cause of teen deaths. Because of increased cell phone usage by teen drivers, teens are also trending to have three times more fatal accidents as other drivers. Practice Safety When Driving The age of technology is here to stay. When the automobile was introduced in 1769 (recorded as the first vehicle to move under its own power) the first auto accident was soon to follow. The subsequent injuries to millions of people from car accidents led to a host of new safety inventions and motor vehicle laws. Now the introduction of the cell phone and the increase in driving while distractedŽ auto accidents and truck accidents has created the need for safety devices and laws for the motoring public (such as limiting the more dangerous aspects, like texting, of this new technology). It is important for everyone to set a good example for our children and not use cell phones while operating a motor vehicle. Educating our children regarding the risks of driving while distracted is just as important as educating our children about driving under the influence.

I always thought I wanted to be a math teacher." The longer Ms. Eaton taught, the more she realized how profoundly administrators' decisions affected students. She decided the office was where she belonged. "I saw it as an opportunity to impact more students' lives," she said. "You do have tremendous opportunities to have programs in place to make students successful." A confessed workaholic who sees no need for recovery, Ms. Eaton came to Daytona State from Fr edrick Community College in Fr ederick, Md. She was the president there for six years. S he said her biggest goal is to keep D aytona State on the cutting edge using evolving educational tools technology that's making college increasingly portable. "T he classroom is very different than when I was in school," she said. The technology available to our faculty members and students is very different." One technology that doesn't interest Ms. Eaton is television. She doesn' t watch it, she said, leaving her more time to not see movies. "I just don't watch movies," she said. "I haven't been to a theater since I don't know when. I'm dull." A bit of jazz and reading is more Ms. Eaton's thing. When I'm reading for pleasure, then I will do fiction," she said. "I like the murder mysteries." The mathematician has also been able to leave her first educational love behind. She leaves the Mathematics Institute's Millennium prizes for others to win. She has no urge to finally prove or refute the Hodge conjecture; she's got students on the brain. "I don't read any mathematic books anymore," said Ms. Eaton, who beat out 44 other candidates for her job. "I read a lot of things about higher-education history." S he sees her new job as, among other things, a patriotic exercise in protecting liberty. After all, she started her education career on America's Bicentennial. The commitment we have to democracy demands that we have public education," Ms. Eaton said. "I don't think self-government, democracy, is possible unless we have an educated citizenry. We, as a community college, share in the mission of educating a democratic populace." Ms. Eaton beat out 44 candidates for Daytona State's top job. She said her 35 years in education is the only thing she could have done. There might have been other careers," she said.

Some people are crying and calling this unconstitutional. How is this unconstitutional? It's OK to drug test people who work for their money, but not for those who don't? I'd like to see this done in all 50 states.Florida needs more traffic EnforcementF lorida has created a very dangerous traffic situation, which was evident by the fatality figures in the local daily paper recently. Florida drivers know there is no such thing as traffic enforcement and they drive accordingly. Drivers speed, tailgate, run traffic lights, pass school buses and they r un over people on the beach. Until Florida law enforcement does something with these crazy drivers, it is going to get worse. The drivers just don't care.Reader wants more rantsWhen Rants and Raves started this was a good section, and it wasn't slanderous. Now, there are not that many rants and raves. Let's get more.

He was loved by all who knew him and he will be greatly missed. The memories of him will forever live on in our hearts. W ayne was a cook and he loved to feed people. He would take his own money and his time to prepare meals for families in bereavement. He did that with great joy and honest sincerity. Wayne also was a caterer and had a dream of one day starting his own business. The last big catering job he did was for his mother, Mrs. H elen Anderson's birthday party. The party was held at the D ickerson Center, in the activities building, in April of this y ear. It was a grand occasion. One of the things I remember most about Wayne is that he was a very outspoken person. He loved people; he loved his mother and was very close to her. He loved to have fun and he loved to plan a menu and cook. Ab ov e all Wayne loved to prepare meals and he briefly attended Daytona S tate College in the culinary program. S ome of Wayne's favorite meals to cook were turkey wings, ox-tails, chicken, macaroni and cheese, yellow and white rice, collards, baked beans and corn bread, just to name a few. No one in Volusia/Flagler County could cook turkey wings better than Wayne (he was famous for that). If you have ever purchased a dinner or ate at an event he catered, y ou know what I am talking about. What Wayne Wilmore did was a ministry, and that is the r eason I am writing this letter. He never charged a dime or a dollar to cook food for families in bereavement. He used his money, his talent of cooking and served while he could. He sold dinners on his own and the money he generated was used at times to assist in his service to families. I don't know of anyone else in our community that does this. Are there any more Wayne Wilmores out there? W ayne had a dream, to one day own his own catering business that included cooking and decorating for any occasions. I believe that the reason why this community caterer cooked food and took it to the bereaved families was because that was his calling by God to serve and feed the people that were facing a dark hour. W ayne did great works and he will be greatly missed. Sarah L.Horne-Rone D aytona Beach

Daytona/Daytona Beach Shores 759827 679687 759891 DAYTONA BEACH The N ew Hampshire license plate boasts that it is the "G r anite State." And outside the U.S., there are countries that are well-known suppliers of granite, including I taly, China and India. N atural Gallery Granite Di r ect is a local company that imports directly from those countries and turns colorful granite slabs into beautiful utilitarian art. O pened in November 2006, Natural Gallery Granite Direct is owned and operated by Kim Tong, who came to the U.S. from Fujian Pr o vince in China. Mr. Tong and his friend S huo Chen began the enterprise in New York City in 2003, then moved to R aleigh, N.C., where the business gained a strong foothold. They eventually came to the Flagler/Volusia counties area where, in 2006, the construction industry was as solid as the products they sold. T oday, Natural Gallery Granite Direct is under the sole management of Mr. T ong with a little help from his family. The showroom houses a display of granite products, from kitchen and bath countertops to open stairways to a granite fireplace. N atural Gallery Granite Di r ect stocks more than 100 different colors of quality imported granite. B ut granite is not all that is offered. Natural Gallery Granite Direct also carries a large selection of hardwood cabinetry and stainless steel sinks. This combination of products is an advantage for those who are remodeling their kitchen or bath. It is one-stop shopping" for a home makeover. N atural Gallery Granite Di r ect has a large in-house inventory. There is no wait time for orders, no subcontractors and no outsourced labor. The work is done by experienced crewmembers who know the products they work with and take pride in what they do. N inety percent of Mr. T ong's business comes from homeowners. His best advertisement is word-ofmouth. "O ur emphasis is on quality of product, service and workmanship," Mr. Tong said. "We stand behind our products." H as the current economy affected the business? "Y es, but it's been steady. We pull in customers from F lagler and Orange County, as well as Volusia. Basically, it's referrals. Since we opened (five years ago), we get a lot of referrals and r epeat customers." The customer base is mostly people who are r emodeling. According to Mr. Tong, this is a good time to think about remodeling. W ith an ever-increasing inventory, Natural Gallery Granite Direct is able to offer a wide variety of granite products. Mr. Tong pointed out the difference between online shopping and storefront shopping. In today's financial climate, "people are smart," he said. "They want to save money. They can't order this type of thing online. They have to see it." N atural Gallery Granite Di r ect is at 720 Fentress Blvd., D aytona Beach.Hours are 9 a.m.to 6 p.m.Monday through Saturday.(386) 898-9888.Granite store offers affordability, availabilityBy Cathy WhartonF or Hometown News Randy Barber /staff photographerRows and rows of granite slabs sit in the warehouse of the Natural Gallery Granite Direct in Daytona Beach recently.BUSINESS Business News L ove Wholefoods opens location in Port OrangeLove Wholefood Cafe and Ma r ket will hold a grand opening for its newest location from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., W ednesday, Nov. 23, at 1633 T aylor Road, Port Orange.

What message w ould you like to leave with the community at large today? A: The week includes all populations of the community; men, women and children. It also includes all sexual orientations. The entire community is affected in one way or another. This is the vital message of every W orld AIDS Day: that AIDS does not discriminate. It can strike any member of your family if they don't protect themselves and others. I'm sure my mother never thought her son would contract AIDS. It's the same within all communities, third world or not. If we are not educated about how to protect ourselves, then we are at risk. If I could ask one thing from our community, I would ask them to be loving, and truly feel that NO ONE deserves to get this disease, whatever their background, orientation, color, or religious belief. Q:What can community members do to help? A: They can get involved in some way to promote education. The schools have limitations on them as to what they can and cannot teach. But as parents, we can decide what we want to talk about in our own homes. I can remember how I was amazed at how accepting my parents were of me when they found out I had HIV. I am sure that they would have educated me about this disease had they know about it themselves. B ut they did not know anythingabout it from their generation. I have talked to all of my nephews and family about the disease. They get it. My nephews have always known how to protect themselves. I pray they will never have to go through what I have had to go through living with this disease. Q:What is the theme of this year's World AIDS Day and why? A: The theme for World AIDS Day 2011 is Getting to Ze ro '. After 30 years of the global fight against HIV/AIDS, this year the global community has committed to focusing on achieving three targets: Zero new HIV infections. Zero discrimination. Zero AIDSr elated deaths. Q:If there was ONE thing that you wished to accomplish at World AIDS Day this y ear,what would it be? A: In 2009, there were 2.6 million new HIV infections and 1.8 million people died from AIDS globally. Moreov er, in 2011 people living with HIV were still subject to r estrictions on their travel and/or stay in 47 countries, territories and areas. And it was also true in the US until this year. Let's all be more compassionate and work towards universal access (to care and medications) for everyone!

experts' ability to substantiate our claim for damages," Ly der Johnson said, "however, we don't have equal confidence in the Town's ability to satisfy our claim without there being adverse consequences, including a real possibility of financial ruin for the town and its residents." The $13.7 million-settlement proposed by Citizens Who Care instead asks the To wn to pay a down payment of $2 million, with the r emaining balance deferred and financed by Pacetta for up to 15 years while the J ohnsons discuss other financing terms. A dditionally, the Johnsons are requesting land use entitlements that would "restore the investment-grade nature of our property," according to the settlement offer. The Johnsons own 16 acres of waterfront property along Front Street intended for a proposed mixed-use working waterfront with r estaurants, residences, shops, and dry boat storage a concept challenged by a charter referendum limiting the size of dry boat storage facilities to 5,000 square feet and tighter restrictions on land use regulations enacted by previous councils. The litigation that followed resulted in contention between townspeople over the issues, with one side concerned about the impact of large-scale development and the other concerned about the Town's financial health. Fo r mer Florida senator and representative Rick D antzler, who currently works for the Business Trial Group of Morgan & Morgan, is one of the group members leading the call in favor of settling the lawsuit. He compared the divide in both sides of the issue to two people in a car heading for a cliff. "O ne of the parties is virtually dead already the other party believes the cliff is only 10 feet deep, (but) the cliff is much deeper than that," he said. The settlement offer his group is proposing is meant to prevent the Town from facing a devastating financial blow," Mr. Dantzler said. B ut, he warned councilors the settlement offer would only stand until Nov. 25 that is, unless the Johnsons are willing to extend the deadline. "W e are running out of time," he said. "This offer isn't going to stay alive for more than a week. But this is a dangerous situation can y ou afford to lose?" The consensus among councilors is they would seriously consider the proposal from Citizens Who Ca re as long as they receive a formal version of the settlement from the Johnsons' attorneys and the Johnsons are willing to extend the deadline to consider the settlement to Dec. 7, the date of the first court hearing. C ouncilors set a Nov. 29 date for a meeting closed to the public to discuss the P acetta litigation in further detail. Additional meetings to solicit public input will likely follow. "W e' ve asked for this for a long time," Mayor Gary S mith said. "It's finally come, and how it got here is immaterial, but it is here. We would be amiss if we didn't discuss it but we are (curr ently) not prepared to (make a final decision on the settlement option)." Although councilors made it clear the citizens group does not represent the Johnsons and the offer cannot be seriously considered until their attorney presents a formal copy of the settlement to them, To wn Attorney Cliff Shepard said he believed the settlement is "probably a legitimate offer from the Johnsons." B ut he said there are "clear hurdles" preventing the To wn from quickly resolving the legal issues. Different notices are required for changes in different regulations, while the process of changing those regulations can take a long time; additionally, the issue of entitlements require multiple changes that are "more complicated legally," he said. "M ost of those things will not happen before Dec. 7," he said. Tw o former mayors who spoke at the meeting are optimistic an end to the litigation is near. N ancy Epps, a former councilwoman and mayor, urged councilors to look at the case with an open mind. Don't let us against them go into your mind," she said. B efore handing over the mayor's seat to Gary Smith, T om Rutledge signed off from his post by encouraging the new council members to compromise based on restoring civility in the town. Any compromise in our current situations should be compromise based on healing," he said. "It should be to heal the town and let b ygones be bygones, whatever the system may be. H atchets are buried, no guns to anybody's head, no blame. Just make it work so we can move on." F riday, November 25, 2011 Hometown News A10Po rt Orange/Ponce Inlet So.

Its unemployment rate was 12 percent in O ctober last year. Volusia's unemployment rate has hovered over the state's throughout this year. Job growth in hospitality seems to have narrowed the gap. "V olusia County is a relatively medium-sized county, and hospitality gained 2,200 jobs over the last year," Mr. Fr asier said. " hospitality has led the way in creating jobs the last couple months." The nation has fared the protracted economic downturn better than Florida, but is improving more slowly. A ccording to the state's economic-opportunity department, last month's national, seasonally-adjusted unemployment rate was nine percent. The previous month, it was 9.1 percent. A year ago, the nation had a 9.7 percent unemployment rate, while F lorida's was 11.8. Florida has had a higher unemployment rate than the nation since February, 2008. Mr. Frasier said numerous national and international events are putting headwinds against the local economy. For example, Greece and Italy have had debt crises escalate to changes in their governments. How that affects us locally is with all the uncertainty in the world local business people are reluctant to step out and hire people even if they need to," Mr. Frasier said. "They don't know what the future holds. I think all of what's happening in the world is making business people hold back. The people that hire people are playing it close to the vest." He said that there are ongoing efforts to spur more localized economic activity to offset the affects of national and international events. For example, he noted, the Volusia County Chamber of Commerce Alliance is hosting the Buy Local Volusia Business Expo. The event will be on Dec. 13, at the Daytona International S peedway. Organizers hope to bring local businesses and shoppers together. The whole idea is to promote buying locally to help stimulate the economy here," Mr. Frasier said. "If they're successful, they can stimulate the economy locally." S tate economists are predicting a slight improvement in holiday spending ov er last year, according to Mr. Frasier. That, he said, should get retailers adding temporary workers, which should add more kindling to the local jobs market. "I t will get money in the pocket of people who have been unemployed for awhile," Mr. Frasier said. The next two reports, No vember and December, should reflect those additional hires for the holiday season." He added, "I think what came out in the unemployment reportit wasn't negative. It shows we're going the right direction. We're all saying, Come on, let's go faster.'"JobsF rom page A1

when they're caught." He believes he could effectively decrease the hog population if he were able to trap or hunt hogs on the wooded land that lies between the subdivisions and Interstate 95 where the hogs are coming in. B ut he currently does not have permission to trap on that property, currently o wned by ICI Homes, because the property owner r equires certificates of insurance for liability coverage. "(The hogs) are on the increase so fast, you have to be able to get in that property to really hurt the population," he said, adding, "I've never had a liability issue come up until this." Doug Ross with ICI H omes said ICI requires the insurance certificates in case there is an accident on the property it owns. The City contacted him and is in the process of providing him the insurance certificates, he said. H andling the hogs is "dangerous," Mr. Clark said, adding he had people helping him take the hogs out of traps who had serious injuries. "I f they can cut you with their tusks, they will do that," he said. Assistant police chief W ayne Miller said the wild hog problem is "ongoing" and city staff sees them come out from year to year in different spikes. He said the most recent spike began occurred in the beginning of O ctober in Pinnacle Park. These critters will come out from time to time (in neighborhoods)," he said. No hogs caused any landscaping damage last week, but the City is still looking to prevent future reoccurr ences. "I 'm not sure if they've moved on," he said. "But we 'r e still doing our best to capture them and take care of them." Although the hogs have not attacked residents or their pets, the threat exists as long as they continue coming into the neighborhoods, Mr. Miller said. D iane Minshew, a Sterling Chase resident whose lawn was recently damaged by the wild hogs, said she often sees residents taking walks just outside the wooded land where the hogs are coming in, and fears those people could fall victim to an attack if ICI does not open the area to trapping activity soon. The pigs are out there," she said. "There's people out there all the time and they (ICI) don't do anything about it. People could get hurt there." One Florida-based nonprofit has a little something extra to be thankful for, just in time for Thanksgiving. With the help of Florida Power & Light Company and local contractorsL & S Enterprises and Flair Air Conditioning and Heating, C atholic Church of the E piphany (Daytona E piphany) in Port Orange r eceived a free energy makeover which will help the nonprofit save almost $3,000a year in electric costs. "W e are grateful for the church's important role in the community," said FPL E xternal Affairs Manager Larry Volenec. "This is one of the ways we give back to the community we find a nonprofit, and give them a makeover that is going to give them a long-term return on the investments we make here today at no charge to them." FPL and local contractors donated a new highefficiency A/C with a 15 SEER rating, as well as digital programmable thermostats, new lighting, weather stripping and air filters, among other energy-efficient upgrades totaling approximately $10,000. "W e are so grateful," said Father John Bosco M aison of Daytona E piphany. "It's good timing for this energy makeover to happen for us, just in time for Thanksgiving, which is our busiest season for providing local families with meals and assistance." In addition to the energy-efficiency items, FPL donated $1,000 to the church's annual Thanksgiving food drive benefitting local families in need.

For Christmas, I never r epeat the turkey dinner. Recipes I have given for rib roast, Virginia ham, lasagna, etc. are great choices. This week's dinner: Fresh ham. Everyone knows about smoked ham, but not fresh ham. It's not always available in local markets. Fresh ham is ham that has not been smoked or cured. It's much less expensive than loin of pork and the meat is lean and delicious. S tart the feast with your choice of two great appetizers. Enjoy. See you next week! R R O O A A STE STE D D VE VE G G E E T T AB AB LE LE T T AR AR T (N T (N I I B) B) ser ser ves 6-8 ves 6-8This recipe is compliments of Carapelli Olive Oil company, famous in F lorence, Italy, since 1893. It 's a relatively easy and excellent appetizer. 4 plum tomatoes (Roma), coarsely chopped 1 small eggplant, unpeeled and cubed 1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and cut in strips that are 1/2 inch wide, 1 inch long 1 large zucchini, cut lengthwise in quarters and then into 1/4-inch slices 4 cloves garlic, minced 1/4-cup extra virgin olive oil, divided 1/2-teaspoon salt 1/8-teaspoon ground black pepper Corn meal H alf of 9-ounce package r efrigerated pie crust* 2 tablespoons grated Pa r mesan or Romano cheese H eat oven to 450 degrees. In bowl, toss all vegetables with garlic, 3 tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper. Pl ace vegetables in a large pan. Bake 30 minutes until golden brown. P lace piecrust on pan which has been lightly sprinkled with cornmeal. P lace roasted vegetables onto crust, leaving a 2-inch border. Fold the dough up (pleating as necessary) to partially cover the filling around the round edges. Br ush crust with remaining oil. R educe oven temperature to 425-degrees. Bake 15-20 minutes until crust is golden brown. Sp r inkle with cheese, cut into wedges and serve. *Use piecrust sold boxed in sheets, not formed in a tin. Can be found in the dairy section. S S P P I I NA NA C C H-F H-F E E T T A A AI AI O O LI O LI O N C N C R R O O STI STI N N I I (N (N I I B) B) mak mak es 8-1 es 8-1 0 0 appetizers appetizers Aioli is garlic mayonnaise that originated in southern France. This appetizer is made like bruschetto. The end result is superb and may be made lower in fat by using lowfat creamed spinach and low-fat or fat-free mayonnaise. One 9-ounce package creamed spinach 3/4-cup mayonnaise 4-ounce package crumbled feta cheese 1 garlic clove, pressed 1/4-teaspoon ground red pepper 1 French or Italian bread loaf, cut diagonally into 1/2-inch slices Thaw creamed spinach in microwave at medium (50 percent power) 5-6 minutes. Stir together mayonnaise and next 3 ingredients; stir in creamed spinach. SPREAD creamed spinach mixture evenly on bread slices, and place slices on baking sheet. Bake at 350-degrees for 10 minutes or until cheese melts. Serve immediately. F F R R E E S S H HAM H HAM ser ser ves 1 ves 1 0 or more 0 or moreAsk the butcher to bone and tie the ham. Save the bone for a special occasion spaghetti sauce (adds great flavor). By removing the skin and the fat you will have a wonderful, lean r oast pork. For a special treat, have the butcher bone the meat and leave the skin (rind) on. It will become crisp and delicious, albeit loaded with fat. Either way, the recipe is the same. 7 pound shank half fresh ham G arlic powder S alt and pepper Score rind with a sharp knife. Sprinkle roast with seasonings. Place on a rack in roasting pan.

Each November it is a birthday gift to myself to spend a day alone on the water. While I enjoy company, once in a while a solo trip is good for the soul. As it turned out I had picked a great day. The morning dawned not quite as cool as it had been and the wind that had been blowing for days had finally lain. I launched my 16-foot Carolina Skiff at the public ramps near Tu r tle Mound. If you are not sure where that is, find it easily by going out to A1A in New Smyrna Beach and heading south. After about five miles you will encounter a toll booth entrance to Canaveral Na tional Seashore. If you are there to launch at Tu r tle Mound there is no charge and the ranger will wave you through. The r amps are only about a quarter-mile past the gate. Whenever I fish the M osquito lagoon my first emotion is always jealousy. I envy the water quality and pristine marine environment that is so sorely lacking in the inshore near my home in Ormond Beach. Right away I could see that this trip would be one of those rare times when the water in the Lagoon is high enough to allow me to go just about anyplace I pleased. I began up around Cedar Cr eek and jigged up a couple small trout right away. With trout season closed I enjoyed the action but I was there with redfish on my mind. Searching farther north I push-poled into the tight mangroves east of the Three Sisters. There my chartreuse jig picked up a feisty undersized red of 14 inches. I was encouraged. At a quarter before 9 a.m. I was just off the mouth of a creek that was maybe 25-feet wide. My first cast into the center of that inlet brought no r esults. Next, I tossed my 1/8 Oz. jig over to the far edge and perilously close to a submerged oyster bar. B efore it had time to settle to the bottom a fish had it and sent up a tell-tale boil. I set the hook and felt the awesome strength that lets y ou know you are attached to a broad shouldered, head shaking, power wagon of a big red. I hustled to get the fish away from the sharp o ysters and when it was ov er the grass I chuckled out loud at my good fortune. Now I could relax and enjoy the fight. By the time I put the net under the fish it had shrunk somewhat from my first estimate but it was still a nice 21-inch red. A good birthday present, indeed. H eading south, I crossed the Government Cut and found the fishing to be a bit slower there. Eventually, I did find a good school of trout near the oyster lease west of the mouth of the Cut. I had several hits and quite a few managed to release with no help from me. The two I landed there would have both been keepers during trout season. By the time I put my boat back on the trailer I had landed three reds and five trout, which made me a pretty happy birthday boy. No w that the great seaweed episode has subsided, the surf is picking up. My neighbor and fishing buddy John R ector landed a nice 20inch red in short order and I am hearing about lots of blues. The big mullet are there, so watch the birds for a clue to the action. If y ou catch it right a cooler of tasty silver mullet can be yours with one throw of a cast net. This is a great time to be fishing. If you miss it, you only have y ourself to blame.

Icannot tell you how many times I have seen a small business open up in my community, say to myself, "Oh, that's great, I'll have to get in there," and then drive by months later and realize that I have y et to make that first stop to see what this new venture is all about.This frustrates me. My intentions are good. And maybe if I had seen va r ious advertisements reminding me about the place, I would have made that visit. The best part is when it's locally o wned; it's not just a business, but a person possibly a neighbor or someone I know from the gym or the park or school events. It 's personal. I think of the excitement they must have had when first getting the idea for the business, putting it together and actually seeing it take shape. Then, as the excitement slowly fades and the reality of success or failure is in plain view, the realization of such a brave move takes hold. It is all of our responsibility to help our local business people succeed. It is the core of a community. The lifeblood. Without our local business partners, we would be left with only the large national chains with no ties to our community, only looking to take our money and run when times get r ough. So this holiday season, I have made a pact with myself to purchase everything I possibly can from local purveyors. Bikes, music, wine, gourmet food, books, even clothes for my trendy wife can be found in businesses owned by those who live among us. Su re I might pay a little more, but that extra coin will stay in my community, not be shipped off to some corporate headquarters up north. And by purchasing local, you get hometown service. It's nice to be able to pick up the phone and get an actual person on the line or walk into a place and talk to the same person who sold you an item. Ho liday dinners and parties? Local restaurants only. There's something to be said about walking into a place "where everyone knows y our name." N ot that all locally owned businesses are perfect. Many of them are owned by people who have never been in business for themselves before. But because they dreamed and dared, I think we can cut them a little slack while they work out the kinks. If we stick with them now, think of the gratitude they will show us later. I hope you will join me in patronizing locally owned businesses this holiday season.

J ust wander into Best Buy the day after Thanksgiving and check out the unruly mob of shoppers and the long lines at the checkout lanes. Lots of people like to give or r eceive gadgets for the holidays. B ut, which one to choose? It's always a daunting question, even for the experienced gadget freak. He re are some guidelines that might help, from someone who has bought more than his share of cutting-edge electronics over the past 30 years.T abletsNo question about it. Tablets are the hottest thing out there these days and there are an increasing number to choose from. The two top sellers this year are likely to be two new 7-inch models the Amazon Kindle Fire and the Nook T ablet from Barnes & Noble. Both are Android-powered devices but the Nook boasts more storage 16GB versus 8GB on the Fire and is more expandable with a micro SD slot. The biggest appeal of these two new tablets will likely to be their low price $199 for the Fire and $249 for the Nook.

Give the gift of love... 674212www.bishopsglen.org 6V olusia CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 11 Things have been pretty tight this y ear and, like so many others, I'm cutting my holiday gift list back considerably. But I still love the spirit of giving that accompanies the holiday season. This year, though, instead of fruitcakes and gag gifts, I want my gifts to help give back to my community. Cr ystal Elkins, Director of Marketing and Events for United Way of V olusia-Flagler Counties, said there are many ways to give gifts that give back. There is so much need out there," she said. "So many choices for what and how you can give. One of the easiest and best ways to help the community as a whole is to donate to the U nited Way because you're not just helping one organization or one person." The United Way is an umbrella agency that partners with 36 community non-profits in Volusia and Flagler C ounties. The focus is on the areas of education, income and health. "W e believe that these are the building blocks of a better life," Ms. Elkins said. The way the United Way works is that donations are accepted during the annual fundraising campaign, which typically runs from September to March. "Then, starting in April, we have a group of 80 to 100 volunteers go thought the grants and applications," Ms. Elkins said. These volunteers, not the United W ay staff, are the ones who make the By Barbara Salter NelsonF or Hometown News HOLIDAY GIFTS Randy Barber /staff photographerThis year's holiday ornament from UCP is a sea scallop by artist Kathy McCreery.

Any nerves I might have had going in were washed away the moment owner Becky Cook greeted me with a big smile. "Under $10? Ya y, that's me!" she said as I surprised her with my mission. She wasn't kidding her store is loaded with a variety of inexpensive gifts, including candles, greeting cards, books and jewelry. The store also has manatee, dog and military sections. Going in, I told myself to be frugal with jewelry selections, afraid that I would end up with a list that looked more appropriate for a department store advertisement. However, I couldn't resist the butterfly necklace. The intricacies in color and design were topnotch and it seemed like a steal at $8.95. 10 UNDER$10 By Casey Prestoncpreston@hometownnewsol.comThousands are still in debt after blowing by their holiday budgets last year. W ant to avoid that this year? Here are some ideas. VO L USIA COUNTY Are those sleigh bells ringing off in the distance? N ope, just another cash register. It 's hard to believe, but Black Fr iday, the kick-off of the holiday shopping season, is upon us. One minute you were enjoying a glass of wine as you sat enjoying the crisp autumn air. Now you look down to see a long gift list. F or many people, what is most depressing is the foreknowledge that a few months later that will inevitably be r eplaced with an even longer and scarier list this one from a credit card company. If y ou fit that description, it may be comforting to know you aren't alone. A study from Consumer Reports showed that in 2010, 45-percent of holiday shoppers blew past their intended budget. In fact, as of October 2011, 14 million Americans are still paying off debt from last holiday season. So how can you avoid being a part of that statistic next year? Pe r haps that answer lies just down the street from you, in a consignment or thrift shop. After all, a gift doesn't have to cost a lot to be appealing. There are typically dozens of items inside in near-perfect condition that are marked at a fraction of retail v alue. Hunting for these treasures will not only help your wallet, but y ou might catch yourself having some fun too. It is certainly possible to make y our family and friends smile without it breaking your bank. A little creativity can go a long way. The following list is here to help get those juices flowing. So to help those who are looking for great gifts on a budget, I visited 10 stores throughout Volusia County in search of gifts under $10 for all family members. Y ou may love some and you may not, but at the very least I hope it provides you with the inspiration to look locally and creatively this holiday season. Ab ov e all, no matter where you shop this season, please don't make the mistake of letting giftgiving take precedence over what truly makes a great holiday season: family, friends and getting together. Good luck. 1See TEN, 30

With all the emphasis on the dangers of obesity and a sedentary lifestyle, maybe even Santa has been busting some moves to lose a few pounds. I bet the reindeer (and Mrs. Claus) would really appreciate that. "H elping someone you care about become healthier and more fit is one of the best gifts you can give anyone," said Beverly Johnson, vice president of health strategy for the Volusia Flagler Family YMCA. "There are fitness related gifts for everyone in the family from ages 4 to 94." F or adults who aren't very active, a membership to a fitness club might be a great way to get them started on a healthier lifestyle. There are a wide variety of gyms and other fitness centers throughout the area, and many cater to beginners. "A family membership is an excellent way to do something good for your entire family, including yourself," said Ms. Johnson. A typical youth YMCA monthly membership costs about $20, and a family membership averages $55 per month. "M embership fees at the Y are income-based," she said.

Ms. Johnson also suggests giving gifts of specialty classes such as cycling, yoga, pilates, Z umba, kickboxing or swimming for the more active recipients on your gift list. Often times, people get into habits and stick with what they usually do. By going outside the lines, you encourage them to try something new something they really might enjoy while focusing on different parts of their body. There are some new, exciting classes out there. At the Y, for example, we're certified to offer the new Les Mills training courses like Body Pump and Body C ombat. Those are new and fun. G yms and fitness centers throughout Volusia County also offer different kinds of classes, including the new boot camp training programs There are individual and group classes for everybody from toddlers to seniors and from chair exercises to the latest intense full-body military style TRX workouts. "G ifts of sessions with a personal trainer are also great for the beginning or the seasoned exerciser," she said. "In fact, if you give a gift of group personal training to a friend and y ourself, you both have a better chance at sticking with it. "B efore starting on any kind of exercise program, though, it's important to check with your doctor to make sure you don't have any restrictions or limitations before you begin," said Ms. Johnson. M assages also make an excellent gift," she added. "M any times, even if a person does work out, they don't treat themselves to the softer side of fitness like massage. These can be purchased individually or in packages for discounted pricing." G ifts of fitness clothing or gear especially for the folks who are just getting started are always appreciated. "A lot of people dread exercising, especially when just starting out," Ms. J ohnson said. "They just throw on whatever they have and don't invest in a good outfit.

14V olusia CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 11 Don't waste energy by unnecessarily pre-heating your oven. Some foods, such as bread and desserts, require preheating, but holiday meal staples such as turkey and ham don't. Keep the oven door closed. It's tempting to check the turkey's roasting progress by opening the oven door, but it's not worth the heat-loss and the significant amount of energy required to bring the oven back up to the desired temperature. Instead, turn the oven light on and look through the interior window. Choose glass or ceramic pans for the ov en. Believe it or not these types of pans actually heat faster than metal ones. B ecause they heat faster, cooks can set the temperature 25 degrees lower than the recipe suggests for the same cooking time, which saves on heating costs. Match the size of the pan to the size of the heating element. For example, when using an electric cook top, a 6-inch pan on an 8-inch burner will waste more than 40 percent of the heat produced by the burner. When possible, cover pots and pans. This can help cook food more quickly and keeps the cooking temperature higher, which allows cooks to turn down the stove. Use smaller appliances such as crockpots, microwaves and toaster ovens when possible. These can be much more energy-efficient for side dishes or small meals. Oven-bake as many items together as can. Even though some items may cook at different temperatures, many items can be cooked at a standard temperature. Gently remind guests to turn off lights and fans when they leave the room. S topping one ceiling fan from running all the time and turning at least one light off when you leave the room can save you more than $7 a month in energy costs. R emember, fans do not actually cool thehome. Fans only improve the circulation of air, making people feel cooler. Before overnight guests arrive, switch out guest room and common area lighting to compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs. Each CFL bulb installed will save about $50 in energy costs over the life of the bulb. Save energy, costs while cooking the holiday feast T he holidays get expensive and it's not just gifts and toys. It takes a lot of energy to entertain friends and family in the ho me and more energy means more energy costs. FPL offers these energy saving tips that can add up to real savings.

perhaps made from the newer dry wicking fabrics, they'll feel better about themselves and are more likely to go to the gym." Pr ices for fitness clothing va ry of course, but I found several ladies' moisture wicking tops for less than $20 at local department stores, and bargain hunters who are Internet savvy should be able to stretch their dollars even more. G ym bags also make great gifts," Ms. Johnson said. "The new ones are designed to keep your shoes and damp clothes separate. P eople generally don't splurge on nice gym bags for themselves. There are all kinds out there." Ms. Johnson has also been seeing a lot of the innovative, less structured workout shoes. The new Fi ve F inger shoes by V ibram are based on the theory that we really don't need as much structure in our sneakers. We we re meant to be barefoot. It makes sense," she explained. "They're cute and colorful and we're seeing a lot more of them. That would be a fun gift." These trendy shoes cost about $100. Locally, you can find them at S pikes Athletic Footwear in Holly Hill or on the Internet. A ccording to Ms. Johnson, some other popular, higher-end fitness gifts include computerand GPS-based fitness trackers These track everything distance, calories, heart rate, even humidity, altitude and your route. They're wonderful for runners, walkers and cyclists. There are a myriad of computer systems out there. They can help keep folks motivated by showing how they've progressed." These can cost about $200 and more depending on the functions. If yo u' re on a tighter budget, a good basic pedometer with no frills can be found for less than $10 at most of the big box stores. F or those who are watching their budget, fitness gifts don't have to be fancy or expensive. W ater bottles are always good gifts. Some of them are more ergonomic and are easier to hold in your hand. They take the pressure off trying to carry one while you're running or working out," said Ms. Johnson. Exercise mats are another gift idea. Most people don't change them out often enough and whether we like to admit it or not, we do sweat!" S peaking of sweat, sweatbands and socks make good stocking stuffers and are easy on the budget. A fitness magazine subscription may help continue to motivate the recipient long after the holidays are over. And don't forget about the many D VDs and exercise video games out there. Once you get fitness on the brain, it's fairly easy to come up with gift ideas at all price points. But it's not always about finding the right present. "S ometimes, we forget that we don't necessarily have to buy a gift," Ms. J ohnson said. "We can make a commitment as a family to eat healthier and to do something healthy together every day. That's really the best thing that we can do for each other. Now that is a really great gift.""The new FiveFinger shoes by Vibram are based on the theory that we really don't need as much structure in our sneakers. We were meant to be barefoot. It makes sense.

29V olusia CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 11 The holidays are here and that means shoppers have started to stockpile gifts for those they love. Once the shopping rush is over, the time to wrap all of those great finds and treasures has come. Although some people are gift-wrap gurus, there are many others who feel that their wrapping skills are lacking. R egardless, anyone can create delightful wrapped gifts with a little know-how.PrepareThe first step to wrapping is to have all of the supplies in one place. There are some people who have actually dedicated small rooms as gift-wrap stations. While you don't have to go this far, find a large table and keep your tape, tags, paper, ribbon, scissor, pen, and other accessories nearby. Also, sort out the gifts according to r ecipient and have any gift receipts handy to wrap up with the gift. Wr ap at a time when there are no distractions and you can devote your attention to the task at hand, like after children have gone to bed or during the day when no one is home.P aper or bags?When purchasing wrapping paper, it may be tempting to skimp on the quality of the paper to save money. How ever, a thicker, higher quality paper will make wrapping go more smoothly. That's because it will be less likely to tear on boxes or when you're r olling out and cutting it. Thicker paper means you'll also be able to achieve more intricate folds and better creasing around boxes. It also may be more forgivable around oddly shaped items. G ift bags are the go-to wrapping medium when you're short on time or have items that are not easily wrapped with paper. Because they come in a variety of sizes and even giant plastic bags to contain large gifts they are often more convenient.Other tipsThere are different tips that can help with wrapping. Buy neutral-patterned wrapping paper that coordinates with other papers. This way if you run out of one type of paper you can stagger other pieces and make a collage of papers so there's no waste. Use ribbon to dress up a gift and direct the eye away from any imperfections. Keep a stack of paper scraps and use it instead of tissue paper to fill in gift bags. Keep scissors sharp for clean cuts. Pack smaller items or oddly shaped things into a different container that is easier to wrap. Roll up clothing and place into a paper towel tube to turn the wrapping into a candy cane shaped gift. Pr actice often makes perfect when it comes to wrapping gifts. Having the r ight paper, a few decorative supplies and some patience can ensure that gifts look festive this year.GIFT WRAPPING TRICKS AND TIPS Metrocreativeconnection.comF or Hometown News 2400 S.Rid g ewood Ave S.

He offers customers 70-percent off the v alue of each book, or 80-percent should the customer come in for a trade. Not surprisingly, his biggest sellers are romance and vampire books, although he has a large war section as well. This particular book by S tanley Karnow is a history of the Vietnam War and was featured on television during the week of Veterans Day, Mr. Brown said. In a day when books are becoming increasingly obsolete, shelling out $8 for a piece of history like this seems like money well-spent. Owner Janet Lustik's store offered so many gifts perfect for this list that I had to include this as well. This is one of a few dozen artwork pieces at Ms. Lustik's store. Some are more than $10, but prices are very negotiable, she said. Canvas art like this would make a great addition to a coastal Florida home and, at the starting price of $8, it is hard to pass up. I remember as a child forcing more than my fair share of smiles after r eceiving a new pair of long johns or tube socks, but I never turned down a stuffed animal. Inexpensive, meaningful and sentimental, stuffed animals are ideal gifts for y oungsters.8 9 10TenF rom page 31 Stuffed Leopard, $5Beach Canvas, $8 Design & Consign Furniture 2030 S.

34V olusia CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 11 The holidays are a festive time of y ear, but they can also prove stressful for the millions of people who travel to visit friends and family or use time off during the holidays to go on vacation. Because so many people travel during the holidays, airports are more crowded than usual and the nation's roadways often experience heavy traffic, especially on the days immediately before and after a holiday. While there's not much travelers can do to reduce the number of fellow travelers come the holiday season, there are certain dos and don'ts that can make holiday travel much easier. DO plan ahead. Leaving holiday travel plans until the last minute is a r ecipe for disaster. Some air travelers feel it's more affordable to book flights in the weeks leading up to the holidays rather than months in advance. While it's possible to find last minute airline deals, it's very possible such deals will put travelers on standby. That's potentially disastrous during a travel season that has frequent flight delays or cancellations due to inclement weather. Book travel plans as early as possible to avoid the hassles of last minute bookings. DON'T blame airport staff if things go awry. The holiday season can be stressful for those who have to travel, but it's exceedingly stressful for the men and women who work in the travel industry. Airline employees, particularly those who work at ticket counters, are too often treated poorly by travelers who need someone to blame for flight delays and cancellations. The same goes for the people who work at bus or train stations. R egardless of how inconvenient interrupted travel plans can be, it's never the fault of the person working at the airport. It's often a result of inclement weather, which is something no one can control. DO insure your trip. As mentioned above, flight delays and cancellations are common during the holiday season. Heavy snowfall can wreak havoc on travel plans, even for those people who live in relatively temperate climates. Travelers traveling to or from r egions where heavy snowfall is a possibility should always protect themselves against flight cancellations or delays by insuring their trips. I nsurance is often inexpensive and can protect travelers if their flight plans go awry. DON'T try to make up for lost time. While there's little air travelers can do to make up for lost time, those traveling by automobile often try to make up for lost time by driving aggressively. Nothing could be more dangerous, as the roads are often overcrowded and driving conditions during the holidays are rarely ideal. Even if a traffic jam or other delay makes it impossible to stick to your travel schedule, don't risk disaster with aggressive driving. Instead, call your destination and explain you will be a little late because of delays on the r oadway. No matter where you are going, be it a hotel or to a friend or family member's house, they will understand the situation and they will certainly prefer you get there safe and sound. DO be an early bird. The early bird gets the worm, and when it comes to holiday travel, the early bird can also significantly reduce the stress of traveling. If traveling by air, get to the airport extra early. This way you won't have to fret when the lines at baggage check or security checkpoints are long. If traveling via automobile, get up early and hit the road before most drivers are even out of bed.

35V olusia CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 11 C ome the holiday season, most people find themselves in a giving mood. Gifting friends, family and even coworkers is common, but there are many other people in our daily lives who societal norms suggest deserve a gift as well. Ho liday tipping is more common in certain areas than others, but there are a few questions men and women can ask themselves when trying to decide if a person in their lives deserves a holiday tip or gift.How often do you see the person?How frequently you see a person can help determine if that person deserves a holiday gift or tip. For example, a child's babysitter or nanny deserves a little something extra come the holidays because you likely see that person on a regular basis. The same goes for the postman or a dog walker. Men and women you rarely see or rarely need do not warrant a tip or gift.Where do you live?Where a person lives also goes a long way toward determining a holiday tip or gift. People who live in apartments should show their appreciation to the doorman and building superintendent with a tip or gift. H omeowners need not tip their local handyman, however, even if he performs the same tasks as a building superintendent. Homeowners tend to do more of their own fix-ups around the house, while apartment dwellers often rely on the super to keep their apartment in tip-top shape.Is the person a professional?M en and women who provide professional services, such as accountants, lawyers and doctors, do not warrant a tip during the holidays. These professionals are already paid handsomely for their services, and many might even gift their customers. For those who have an especially strong relationship with their accountant, lawyer, etc., perhaps a gift such as a bottle of wine might be a nice gesture. But it's certainly not mandatory.Did the person go above and beyond?Of course, there are no ironclad rules when it comes to tipping or gifting others during the holidays. For example, many people don't find it necessary to tip their auto mechanic come the holidays for the same reasons you wouldn't tip an attorney. Both are already well compensated, and an extra tip is not necessary. However, if your auto mechanic saved your car from the scrap heap or provided service that is above and beyond what you have a right to expect, then perhaps a tip or a thoughtful gift is in order. When the holiday season arrives, generosity often reigns. But men and women should not feel obligated to tip or gift every person in their lives.WHO AND HOW TO TIP DURING THE HOLIDAYS Metrocreativeconnection.comF or Hometown News 674477A childrens Consignment store $5.00OFF$10.00OFFAny purchase of $25.00 or more Any purchase of $50.00 or more 686318 Holiday Gift Certificates AvailableDaytona Flea &Farmers Market Located in Booths (Corner Shops) 71 &72 386-334-0432K elly and MikeClean & FriendlyBroad array of body art from client renderings to specific artistry.Stingray T attoo Stingray Stingray T attoo T attooOver 50 Years Combined Experience 674163 30% OFF 30% OFF20% OFF 20% OFFALL VITAMINSOffer Expires 12/31/11 Must Present Coupon Offer Expires 12/31/11 Must Present CouponALL GIFT ITEMS676820We have Hoodia S S a a n n t t a a   s s   H H e e a a l l t t h h y y   G G i i f f t t s s S S t t a a r r t t a a t tMichaelsHealth FoodContemporary Plaza 661 Beville Rd. € Suite 101 South Daytona € 267-9000Mon-Sat 9am-6pmGluten Free Products Available

Each agency goes through a rigorous review process to make sure the donor dollar are going to programs that actually work and are meeting the needs of the community," Ms. Elkins said. The easiest way to turn a holiday gift into something meaningful is to give a cash donation in someone else's name. "M y parents, who are both retired and live in Daytona Beach, told me a few months ago that instead of the (usual holiday) scramble of deciding what to give people, they're going to give something that will help everybody," Ms. Elkins said. "Guess I just let the cat out of the bag for my family's gifts!" The United Way create certificates saying a donation has been made in the recipient's honor and you can present them yourself. To learn which agencies fall under the United Way's umbrella, you can go to their website, www.unitedwayvfc.org. Unless specified, your donation will become part of a pool that will help support all of the agencies' services and programs. In addition to making a donation to the United Way or other charitable organization in someone's name, there are other "things" you can give that will not only please the folks on y our gift list, but will also help make a difference and help our community. F ollowing are just a few.Holiday Cards Help F eed Our Neighbors" There's a big need for food right now," said Ms. Elkins. "A lot of our food banks are striving to meet the demands that are constantly arising and during the holidays there's always that extra push. Everyone wants to make sure that the families and the needy really have access to a good meal during the holidays." F or the past decade, the Second Ha rv est Food Bank has presented a wonderfully innovative gift alternative that makes a huge difference. Their "U nwrapping Hope" Holiday Card program is easy, inexpensive, and more importantly, each card purchased provides meals for 20 people in your area. He re 's how it works. You buy a specially designed holiday greeting card from them for a donation of $5 or more. They will personalize the card and mail it to the people or businesses on your list letting them know that you've made a donation to the Second Harvest Food B ank in their behalf and that their gift will provide food to those in need throughout the year.

But if you just want to find out what the big deal is about tablets, and don't want to spend an arm and a leg, the Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet probably will be good choices. Both tablets will be capable of streaming HD video (albeit from different specific collections) and tapping into each store's respective music and print libraries as well as running a special collection of apps. Both are wi-fi only. No 3G option. Pr ices are dropping quickly on the many of the iPad wanna-bes out there, including the Samsung G alaxy Tab, Toshiba Thrive, Motorola Xoom, Acer Iconia and others. E xpect most of those to be quite a bit cheaper than a comparable iPad (although probably not as cheap as the Fire) after Thanksgiving, if not earlier. All run on the Android operating system, which will look and feel different from the custombuilt versions of the same OS used on the Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet. Any of those larger tablets would be a good choice if you want a bigger screen than the Fire and Nook have but don't want to spend the big bucks for an iPad. Expect to pay between $300 and $450, depending on the size and features. M any tablets offer the same 3G option as the iPad but the best advice is to skip that unless you are sure you need it. A tablet that can access the cellular network is not only more expensive on the front end, it costs the user $30 a month or more for a data plan. Wi-fi only tablets don't require a data plan. Also, you probably should avoid the "no-name" tablets. They may cost a lot less but there's a reason for that. No-name tablets are likely to suffer from poor reliability and build quality, dated or closed operating systems, and/or a lack of applications that will run on them. If price is no object, the iPad is still the best of the bunch.E-book readersThis was a hot category last year and is likely to be even hotter this y ear, again thanks to Amazon. It has cut the price on its base Kindle e-reader to $79, about $50 less than last year. That model would be the best choice if you want the best deal and are a big reader. The black and white e-ink screen on the K indle is easier on the eyes over the long haul than color models and is r eadable even in bright sunlight. If y ou want to spend a little more and like the idea of a touch screen, there are two good choices: For $99, y ou can get a touch screen version of the Kindle or the competing Ba r nes & Noble Nook Simple T ouch. Barnes & Noble recently slashed the price of its Nook by $40 so it can compete head to head with the Kindle. These two readers are very similar so the decision comes down to personal taste. S tudy each model, including the libraries they can access, and choose the one you like the best. M ost color tablets can also be used as e-readers but don't work as well as the dedicated black and white r eaders, whose e-ink displays most closely mimic the printed page. S till, Barnes & Noble does make a color version of its Nook e-reader and recently cut the price from $250 to $199.SmartphonesThese gadgets are always a popular choice for gift-giving, since almost everyone can use one and new models seem to hit storeGiftsF rom page 4 See G IFTS, 41 674162142 East Granada Blvd.Ormond Beach,FL 32176 € 386.672.9903 BUY 2 GET 1 FREE € FINE JEWELRY € HOME DECOR € STATIONERY € GIFTSSame products that were used at the Royal Wedding!Of equal or lesser value.BUY 2 GET 1 FREE

A pple's new iPhone 4S is a good choice for Apple fans and newcomers to the smartphone world, since the OS is arguably better than the many Android competitors and the apps are often more capable. And with prices starting around $199 (with 2 year contract), it won't break the bank. Opt for the older, but almost as capable iPhone 4 if money is tight it starts at $99, half the price of the 4S .Or the even older iPhone 3GS, which in some cases, is free with a two-year contract. The iPhone 4 looks almost identical to the 4S but lacks the 4S internal improvements, including a faster processor and better camera. On the Android front, the choices are more numerous and complicated. Among the newest offerings is the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, due in mid-November and the first to run on the new Android 4 operating system code named Ice Cream S andwich. This dual-core phone is 4G LTE capable, the fastest data service available, and has a larger screen than the iPhone. Prices have not been set but expect to pay between $200 and $300 (with contract) to have this latest and greatest smartphone. Other options include the less popular Windowsbased and Blackberry phones. Steer clear of those unless you need any special features they may offer. A pple and Android are now the dominant players in the cell phone marketplace. F or those who don't need the latest technology but still want the convenience of a cell phone, consider a pay-as-you go service like Tracfone. If you don't need a lot of minutes or the most modern smart phone, you can get a year's worth of cell phone service for less than $9 a month (You also have to buy the phone, which generally costs from $20 to $50).HDT V'sPr ices continue to fall on HDTV's, while the feature-set improves. The sweet spot can found in the 46-inch to 50-inch models, which are now going for as little as $500 and are likely to go even lower as the holidays approach. The price of 32inch models is now routinely below $300. That could make HDTV's a good choice for gift-giving this y ear. The big push this holiday season, however, will be the more expensive models with wired or wireless I nternet connectivity, which is usually tied to a feature often called S mart TV. These TVs have built-in apps, similar to the ones found on smartphones. There are lots of different apps but most consumers probably will focus on those that allow for the direct streaming of movies or TV shows, including Hu lu, Vudu, Netflix, CinemaNow, B lockbuster and others. Y ou can also buy standalone boxes from a variety of companies that do much the same thing or B lu-ray players that include the S mart TV feature. In concept, this is a good idea. But the implementation is lacking in my experience. S mart TV features can be slow and clunky, and just don't bring much usefulness to the party unless you don't have cable. They are certainly not worth paying a huge premium for. D itto for the other HDTV gimmick that was the hot ticket last y ear, 3D. It works, but content is limited and you need to buy a special 3D Blu-ray player to watch 3D Blu-ray movies and the glasses y ou have to wear are a pain. If you can get 3D or smart TV for little or no extra money, go for it. But generally speaking you're better off sticking with a good basic HDTV. Look for a name-brand LCD or plasma model in the size that best fits your budget with 1080p resolu-GiftsF rom page 40 See G IFTS, 42

Picture quality and reliability have improved to the point now where almost all available models are very good. However, if you want a TV with the widest viewing angles, go for a plasma set. If price is no object, go for the absolutely huge 80-inch LCD HDTV's that are available this year. C ost: about $5,000.GPSLike nearly every other electronic device, the cost of standalone GPS units has been falling fast in recent y ears. They start at less than $100 and you can get a top of the line model, with voice recognition for around $300. While the el-cheapo models work, most consumers will be happier with a more advanced model with features like text-tospeech (the names of the roads are spoken), lane-assist (tells you more about the next turn, including the number of turn lanes, which side of the road the exit is on), and Bluetooth (pairs with your Bluetooth phone for hands-free phone calls). S tick with a name brand, like Ga r min, Tom-Tom or Magellan and go for at least a 4.3-inch screen. The larger 5-inch screens don't cost a lot more so if you like idea of a bigger screen, go for it. Speech r ecognition, which allows you to control the device with voice commands, also is a convenient feature but sometimes it is not well implemented. Check online reviews before you buy. Lifetime maps and traffic service are also are desirable features if you plan to keep the GPS unit for more than a year.Odds and endsIf y ou or someone you know suffers from remote control clutter, solve it with a unified remote that allows you control everything with one device. I have tried lots of them but the best I have found is the Ha r mony One from Logitech. It handles up to 15 devices and all programming is done via the Ha r mony One Web site, so there are no frustrating multi-number codes to enter. And when you are done, it's easy to start your TV, stereo r eceiver, cable box, DVD or Blu-ray player and gaming devices with one touch. The customizable LCD touch screen on the Harmony One is activity-based. So to watch TV, you simply choose "Watch TV" and all the correct devices come on with all the right settings. Ditto for "Play V ideo Games" or Play DVD." The Harmony One is not cheap between $150 and $200, and the setup can be challenging.

PONCE INLET A group of concerned citizens proposed a solution to councilors aimed at ending an ongoing lawsuit between the Town and a developer that could potentially bankrupt the town government. The group, calling themselves P once Inlet Citizens Who Care, pitched a settlement option at the To wn Councils November meeting calling for the Town to pay a settlement worth $13.7 million to P acetta, LLC, which would end a long and contentious legal battle between the development firm and town leaders. The citizens groups members said they negotiated the offer with P acetta property owners Lyder and S imone Johnson as a possible solution to avoid trial. The case is scheduled for a court hearing on Dec. 7, with Judge William P arsons presiding. In court, the J ohnsons are seeking damages of about $55 million, costs attributable to the Town C ouncils actions and decisions, according to the text of the settlement offer. Thats more than the Town, which has an annual budget of about $4.5 million, is worth. W e have great confidence in our 767-4768AUNT CATFISH Convenient for you.

Ashton Lakes, Sterling Chase, and Pinnacle Park are among the subdivisions that recently saw landscapes on several properties destroyed by wild hogs. The hogs enter the neighborhoods through the wooded areas bordering them. When they enter, they root up residents yards in their quest to find earthworms to eat. B arry Clark, a hog trapper hired by the City, said hogs have been a problem in the area since 2008. The former officer for the Volusia County Sheriffs Office has experience trapping hogs dating back to when he was a teenager, and worked to remove hogs in other parts of Port Orange in the past, such as in the Rose Bay area, he said. S ince the most recent outbreak of hogs in the neighborhoods, Mr. Clark trapped six, using three traps containing sweet r olls, donuts, corn and hay for bait. B ut traps are only effective in capturing the hogs until the hogs become aware of their purpose, he said. H ogs are smart, Mr. Clark said.

While Daytona State no longer wears the long-familiar community college, she said it will always be a community institution primarily responsive to changing local workforce needs. There is the part of our mission at a community college that were preparing the workforce, she said. A number of students come for very specific job training. Ms. Eaton capped her education with a Ph.D. in mathematics education from State U niversity of New York at Albany, and quickly headed back to the classroom, a place native to her.

Si nce 1995, Allen has been working behind the scenes with community partners to make a difference. He is dedicated to empowering, improving and maintaining the quality of life for all persons living with HIV/AIDS. One of Allens work duties is determining how to spend federal dollars designated for participants of the Ryan White Program in Volusia and Flagler counties. The program offers HIV positive persons assistance with services not covered under other programs. Allen is well known for his efforts in being a driving force in the efforts to expand the availability of HIV treatment, prevention, housing, advocacy and education programs to low income and disadvantaged families. A ccording to the Volusia C ounty Health Department, there are slightly more than 1,400 people living with HIV/AIDS in Volusia and F lagler counties. Florida r anks third in the number of adult AIDS cases nationwide. With AIDS being a disease that has plagued the world for the last three decades, advocates like Mr. Allen are dedicated to raising awareness and saving lives. Mr. Allen is a member of the World AIDS Week C ommittee here in Daytona B each. The committee has scheduled a number of events to recognize World AIDS Day. Mr. Allen shares his personal feelings about the AIDS epidemic, why hes working so hard to help others and why events such as W orld AIDS Day are so important. Q:Why is it rewarding for y ou to work in the AIDS field? A: It is important for me to be involved because the more we see positive influences by people that have HIV/AIDS working to end the fear and stigma of the disease, the quicker we will slow the progression of the spread of the disease. People that have experienced r ejection and intolerance are afraid and rightly so. We see violence being demonstrated towards people who have HIV, even those who are not homosexuals. Until we work together to unite with one another and to combat healthcare disparities, the more people will senselessly die. I personally find this unacceptable! I also feel that since I have lived more than 26 years with this disease while many others have not, it is my responsibility to bring about awareness in the honor of those bright individuals who are not here today to carry the torch. Q:What is World AIDS Day? A: World AIDS Day, observed Dec. 1 each year, is dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection. It is common to hold memorials to honor persons who have died from HIV/AIDS on this day. Government and health officials also observe the event, often with speeches or forums on the AIDS topics. Since 1995, the President of the United S tates has made an official proclamation on World AIDS Day. Governments of other nations have followed suit and issued similar announcements. It is also a time for me to personally r emember the bright light of the individuals that I have known who have passedLocal man continues the fight against AIDSBy Sidney SimmonsF or Hometown News See AIDS, A9

For over 50 years the Daytona Beach area has been the nations No. 1 destination for classic car enthusiasts on the four-day Thanksgiving weekend. The Turkey R un, which is centered in the infield of D aytona International Speedway this w eekend, will host nearly 5,000 rod, custom and antique show cars. While Daytona Beach is one of the worlds most recognizable trademarks for all things automotive, practically all that happens there had to first come through the small community of Ormond Beach. Most of us know the story about how auto racing began there in 1903 but few realize that the success of the land speed records set there would encourage Daytona Beach to hold their own. Men like Segrave, C ampbell, Lockhart, Keech, and DeP alma set unbelievable speed r ecords on the beach and when Capt. M alcolm Campbell averaged the ultimate speed of 276 MPH in 1935 he inspired a couple of interested onlookers to develop the oval beach road track. F irst Sig Haugdahl, himself a former world record holder, and then William H. G. France, a local mechanic, took a try at using the beach for stock car r acing. The eventual result was NASCAR and the speedway. The Turkey Run (formerly The Tur key Rod Run) also owes its origins to Ormond Beach. Back in 1958 a group of antique car owners met in that city to create The Birthplace Of S peed Association. Their plan was to hold a parade and car show each Thanksgiving weekend. It just so happened that Big Bill France was looking for some help in publicizing the first race at the new super speedway he had just built in a rural area w est of Daytona Beach. Mr. France was able to convince the men and women of The Birthplace Of Speed Association to hold their first celebration in February of 1959. After that, the event would settle into its regular schedule of the parade on Friday and the Show on Saturday after Thanksgiving. That first show in 1959 drew a most impressive array of beautifully r estored antique vehicles. There was Du ry eas Mercers, Cords, Dusenbergs, M axwells, and many more. There was also a nice bunch of customized hot r ods at the gate. The problem was that the Birthplace Of Speed events were designed for restored or original automobiles. The disgruntled hot r odders were turned away. Having nothing better to do they moved a few miles south to the Bell Aire Shopping C enter for an impromptu show and shine. As the years passed the hot rods outgrew the originals in popularity and the number of cars at the shopping center and across the street at the La Playa Hotel would far outnumber the antiques at Ormond. Eventually the Turkey Rod Run moved to the speedway and became a national attraction. In Ormond Beach, the Gaslight Par ade and car show is still going strong and now in its 54th edition is one of the nations oldest. The parade will begin at 7 p.m. on Friday night from the Casements and proceed east to A1A and then south to Harvard Ave. On Saturday, the car show will be held in Fortunato Park on the east end of the big bridge from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. The Ormond Beach Gaslight Parade and car show are both free to spectators. The Turkey Run will operate all four days. Call (386) 255-7355 for information. Our community is very fortunate to host such an internationally famous car weekend and we owe it all to the little seaside community of Ormond Beach.

ORMOND BEACH S ince starting in September on Wall Street as a localized protest against corporate greed, big-bank bailouts and income disparity, the O ccupy movement has quickly spread all the way across the globe. In fact, on O ct. 15, dubbed by Occupy supporters as their Day of R age, nonviolent protests we re held in more than 80 countries worldwide. That day also marked the first big event for Occupy D aytona Beach, Volusia C ountys local chapter. The daylong event was held at T uscawilla Park near the intersection of Nova Road and International Speedway in Daytona Beach and featured teach-ins, general assemblies, speakers and a sign-waving demonstration outside the Steak N Shake at the same intersection. Although it was the groups first event, the rally drew about 400 people throughout the day with a one-time peak of 250, said S hannon McLeish, an organizer of Occupy Daytona. P eople hung out for the whole day, just talking and sharing stories, she said. I was very pleasantly surprised. Another indication of the events success, Ms. McLeish said, were the several groups of motorcyclists who chose to put their Biketoberfest plans on hold to check out the event. We werent sure how it would work (going up against Biketoberfest), But the bikers love it, she said. Those who didnt stop were honking or revving their engines all day. S ince the Occupy Daytona F acebook page was created in September, it has amassed more than 1,400 fans. Ms. McLeish said she believes one explanation for that growth is the willingness of group members to immerse themselves within the community in order to speak their minds. W e ve only been at this for about a month and were getting a great response. Ms. McLeish said. People are definitely getting the message. Dur ing a sidewalk demonstration on the corner of W. Granada Avenue and Beach Str eet in Ormond Beach this past week, a crowd of about 35 greeted traffic with chants and signs such as W e are the 99-Percent. P eople over Profit. Save the American Dream and H onk for Jobs. Dr ivers were quick to show their support, especially to the last request. In the hour-and-a-half the group protested, rarely would more than 10 seconds pass before another car horn blasted through the area. This came as no surprise to Ms. McLeish. E verywhere we go we hear nothing but horns, she said. percent of people agree with us because 99 percent of the country is struggling. Ev en the loudest horn in the world, however, cannot create jobs, which begs the question: How effective are these Occupy efforts? I dont think Im having any effect at all, sign-bearing Lisa Martin said at the Ormond Beach event. The 72-year-old has participated in dozens of political protests throughout her life, beginning with Vietnam War protests during the 1950s. S ure, there are horns, but what are we supposed to do? Ms. Martin said she believes the next step is to share a specific call to action with movement supporters. The gove rnme nt is r esponsible for creating jobs, so our next sign should be Do X for jobs or explaining ways to demand infrastructure jobs, for example, Ms. Martin said. Cr itics have often accused O ccupy groups of lacking focus, a critique with which Ms. Martin said she agrees. W e need to create a clear and concise explanation of our objectives right away, she said. Right now, we arent really focused where we should be. M eanwhile, Occupy Daytona supporter Linda Walker of Edgewater believes the group makes strides toward progress every day by r eminding locals that these are national issues that dont stop at Wall Street. Each day, more people are starting to sense what it means to be a part of the 99 percent, Ms. Walker said. W e cant be afraid to talk about it. We have to make this as much of an issue as we can. That is, of course, while still keeping their protest peaceful, said Mc. Leish, who admits her tempers still flare when she hears of violent interactions between protestors and law enforcement around the country. W e firmly believe in the nonviolent protest, she said. Still, when we see our fellow Americans maced and hit with batons, thats an outrage. That charges us up. Also frustrating, Ms. M cLeish said, is the way movement supporters are F riday, November 25, 2011 Hometown News A4Po rt Orange/Ponce Inlet So.

Over the last 15 years, the number of cell phone subscribers has increased by 1,262.4%, among who are also drivers on our roads. The use of cell phones while driving has led to an epidemic in auto accidents (called the distracted while driving phenomena.) Driving while distracted is estimated to contribute as much as 13% of all traffic crashes in the United States, while other studies put this figure as high as 25%. A2002 Harvard Center for Risk Analysis calculated that as many 330,000 people are injured every year as a result of drivers using cell phones. Shocking Statistics The statistics associated with cell phone usage and auto accidents is nothing short of shocking. In 2008 it was estimated that, at any given moment, over 800,000 Americans were making calls, texting, emailing or using a smart phone application while driving during the day. A recent US Department of Transportation Consumer Reports study recently showed that: 63% of people under the age of 30 admitted to driving while using a cell phone 30% admitted to sending a text message while driving 56% of teenagers admitted to talking on cell phones while behind the wheel 48% of American children between the age of 12 and 17 said that they had been a passenger in a car while the driver was texting 34% of American teenagers between the age of 12 and 17 admitted to text messaging while driving 21% of all fatal car crashes involving American teenagers between the age of 16 and 19 were the result of cell phone usage in one form or another 50% of all drivers between the ages of 12 and 14 texting while driving The risk of an auto or truck accident is 23 times more likely while texting As you can see from these statistics, car crashes have taken the lead as the number one cause of teen deaths. Because of increased cell phone usage by teen drivers, teens are also trending to have three times more fatal accidents as other drivers. Practice Safety When Driving The age of technology is here to stay. When the automobile was introduced in 1769 (recorded as the first vehicle to move under its own power) the first auto accident was soon to follow. The subsequent injuries to millions of people from car accidents led to a host of new safety inventions and motor vehicle laws. Now the introduction of the cell phone and the increase in driving while distracted auto accidents and truck accidents has created the need for safety devices and laws for the motoring public (such as limiting the more dangerous aspects, like texting, of this new technology). It is important for everyone to set a good example for our children and not use cell phones while operating a motor vehicle. Educating our children regarding the risks of driving while distracted is just as important as educating our children about driving under the influence. For more information on automobile safety, or if you have been involved in an auto accident or truck accident as a result of a distracted driver, the Florida accident law firm of Rue & Ziffra, P.A. is here to help.

One technology that doesnt interest Ms. Eaton is television. She doesn t watch it, she said, leaving her more time to not see movies. I just dont watch movies, she said. I havent been to a theater since I dont know when. Im dull. A bit of jazz and reading is more Ms. Eatons thing. When Im reading for pleasure, then I will do fiction, she said. I like the murder mysteries. The mathematician has also been able to leave her first educational love behind. She leaves the Mathematics Institutes Millennium prizes for others to win. She has no urge to finally prove or refute the Hodge conjecture; shes got students on the brain. I dont read any mathematic books anymore, said Ms. Eaton, who beat out 44 other candidates for her job. I read a lot of things about higher-education history. S he sees her new job as, among other things, a patriotic exercise in protecting liberty. After all, she started her education career on Americas Bicentennial. The commitment we have to democracy demands that we have public education, Ms. Eaton said. I dont think self-government, democracy, is possible unless we have an educated citizenry. We, as a community college, share in the mission of educating a democratic populace. Ms. Eaton beat out 44 candidates for Daytona States top job.

Some people are crying and calling this unconstitutional. How is this unconstitutional? Its OK to drug test people who work for their money, but not for those who dont? Id like to see this done in all 50 states.Florida needs more traffic EnforcementF lorida has created a very dangerous traffic situation, which was evident by the fatality figures in the local daily paper recently. Florida drivers know there is no such thing as traffic enforcement and they drive accordingly. Drivers speed, tailgate, run traffic lights, pass school buses and they r un over people on the beach. Until Florida law enforcement does something with these crazy drivers, it is going to get worse.

He was loved by all who knew him and he will be greatly missed. The memories of him will forever live on in our hearts. W ayne was a cook and he loved to feed people. He would take his own money and his time to prepare meals for families in bereavement. He did that with great joy and honest sincerity. Wayne also was a caterer and had a dream of one day starting his own business. The last big catering job he did was for his mother, Mrs. H elen Andersons birthday party. The party was held at the D ickerson Center, in the activities building, in April of this y ear. It was a grand occasion. One of the things I remember most about Wayne is that he was a very outspoken person. He loved people; he loved his mother and was very close to her. He loved to have fun and he loved to plan a menu and cook. Ab ov e all Wayne loved to prepare meals and he briefly attended Daytona S tate College in the culinary program. S ome of Waynes favorite meals to cook were turkey wings, ox-tails, chicken, macaroni and cheese, yellow and white rice, collards, baked beans and corn bread, just to name a few. No one in Volusia/Flagler County could cook turkey wings better than Wayne (he was famous for that). If you have ever purchased a dinner or ate at an event he catered, y ou know what I am talking about. What Wayne Wilmore did was a ministry, and that is the r eason I am writing this letter. He never charged a dime or a dollar to cook food for families in bereavement. He used his money, his talent of cooking and served while he could. He sold dinners on his own and the money he generated was used at times to assist in his service to families. I dont know of anyone else in our community that does this. Are there any more Wayne Wilmores out there? W ayne had a dream, to one day own his own catering business that included cooking and decorating for any occasions. I believe that the reason why this community caterer cooked food and took it to the bereaved families was because that was his calling by God to serve and feed the people that were facing a dark hour. W ayne did great works and he will be greatly missed. Sarah L.Horne-Rone D aytona Beach

And outside the U.S., there are countries that are well-known suppliers of granite, including I taly, China and India. N atural Gallery Granite Dir ect is a local company that imports directly from those countries and turns colorful granite slabs into beautiful utilitarian art. O pened in November 2006, Natural Gallery Granite Direct is owned and operated by Kim Tong, who came to the U.S. from Fujian Pro vince in China. Mr. Tong and his friend S huo Chen began the enterprise in New York City in 2003, then moved to R aleigh, N.C., where the business gained a strong foothold. They eventually came to the Flagler/Volusia counties area where, in 2006, the construction industry was as solid as the products they sold. T oday, Natural Gallery Granite Direct is under the sole management of Mr. T ong with a little help from his family. The showroom houses a display of granite products, from kitchen and bath countertops to open stairways to a granite fireplace. N atural Gallery Granite Dir ect stocks more than 100 different colors of quality imported granite. B ut granite is not all that is offered. Natural Gallery Granite Direct also carries a large selection of hardwood cabinetry and stainless steel sinks. This combination of products is an advantage for those who are remodeling their kitchen or bath. It is one-stop shopping for a home makeover. N atural Gallery Granite Dir ect has a large in-house inventory. There is no wait time for orders, no subcontractors and no outsourced labor. The work is done by experienced crewmembers who know the products they work with and take pride in what they do. N inety percent of Mr. T ongs business comes from homeowners. His best advertisement is word-ofmouth. O ur emphasis is on quality of product, service and workmanship, Mr. Tong said. We stand behind our products. H as the current economy affected the business? Y es, but its been steady. We pull in customers from F lagler and Orange County, as well as Volusia. Basically, its referrals. Since we opened (five years ago), we get a lot of referrals and r epeat customers. The customer base is mostly people who are r emodeling. According to Mr. Tong, this is a good time to think about remodeling. W ith an ever-increasing inventory, Natural Gallery Granite Direct is able to offer a wide variety of granite products. Mr. Tong pointed out the difference between online shopping and storefront shopping. In todays financial climate, people are smart, he said. They want to save money. They cant order this type of thing online. They have to see it. N atural Gallery Granite Dir ect is at 720 Fentress Blvd., D aytona Beach.Hours are 9 a.m.to 6 p.m.Monday through Saturday.(386) 898-9888.Granite store offers affordability, availabilityBy Cathy WhartonF or Hometown News Randy Barber /staff photographerRows and rows of granite slabs sit in the warehouse of the Natural Gallery Granite Direct in Daytona Beach recently.BUSINESS Business News L ove Wholefoods opens location in Port OrangeLove Wholefood Cafe and Mar ket will hold a grand opening for its newest location from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., W ednesday, Nov. 23, at 1633 T aylor Road, Port Orange.

What message w ould you like to leave with the community at large today? A: The week includes all populations of the community; men, women and children. It also includes all sexual orientations. The entire community is affected in one way or another. This is the vital message of every W orld AIDS Day: that AIDS does not discriminate. It can strike any member of your family if they dont protect themselves and others. Im sure my mother never thought her son would contract AIDS. Its the same within all communities, third world or not. If we are not educated about how to protect ourselves, then we are at risk. If I could ask one thing from our community, I would ask them to be loving, and truly feel that NO ONE deserves to get this disease, whatever their background, orientation, color, or religious belief. Q:What can community members do to help? A: They can get involved in some way to promote education. The schools have limitations on them as to what they can and cannot teach. But as parents, we can decide what we want to talk about in our own homes. I can remember how I was amazed at how accepting my parents were of me when they found out I had HIV. I am sure that they would have educated me about this disease had they know about it themselves. B ut they did not know anythingabout it from their generation. I have talked to all of my nephews and family about the disease. They get it. My nephews have always known how to protect themselves. I pray they will never have to go through what I have had to go through living with this disease. Q:What is the theme of this years World AIDS Day and why? A: The theme for World AIDS Day 2011 is Getting to Zero . After 30 years of the global fight against HIV/AIDS, this year the global community has committed to focusing on achieving three targets: Zero new HIV infections. Zero discrimination. Zero AIDSr elated deaths. Q:If there was ONE thing that you wished to accomplish at World AIDS Day this y ear,what would it be? A: In 2009, there were 2.6 million new HIV infections and 1.8 million people died from AIDS globally. Moreov er, in 2011 people living with HIV were still subject to r estrictions on their travel and/or stay in 47 countries, territories and areas. And it was also true in the US until this year. Lets all be more compassionate and work towards universal access (to care and medications) for everyone!

experts ability to substantiate our claim for damages, Ly der Johnson said, however, we dont have equal confidence in the Towns ability to satisfy our claim without there being adverse consequences, including a real possibility of financial ruin for the town and its residents. The $13.7 million-settlement proposed by Citizens Who Care instead asks the To wn to pay a down payment of $2 million, with the r emaining balance deferred and financed by Pacetta for up to 15 years while the J ohnsons discuss other financing terms. A dditionally, the Johnsons are requesting land use entitlements that would restore the investment-grade nature of our property, according to the settlement offer. The Johnsons own 16 acres of waterfront property along Front Street intended for a proposed mixed-use working waterfront with r estaurants, residences, shops, and dry boat storage a concept challenged by a charter referendum limiting the size of dry boat storage facilities to 5,000 square feet and tighter restrictions on land use regulations enacted by previous councils. The litigation that followed resulted in contention between townspeople over the issues, with one side concerned about the impact of large-scale development and the other concerned about the Towns financial health. For mer Florida senator and representative Rick D antzler, who currently works for the Business Trial Group of Morgan & Morgan, is one of the group members leading the call in favor of settling the lawsuit. He compared the divide in both sides of the issue to two people in a car heading for a cliff. O ne of the parties is virtually dead already the other party believes the cliff is only 10 feet deep, (but) the cliff is much deeper than that, he said. The settlement offer his group is proposing is meant to prevent the Town from facing a devastating financial blow, Mr. Dantzler said. B ut, he warned councilors the settlement offer would only stand until Nov. 25 that is, unless the Johnsons are willing to extend the deadline. W e are running out of time, he said. This offer isnt going to stay alive for more than a week. But this is a dangerous situation can y ou afford to lose? The consensus among councilors is they would seriously consider the proposal from Citizens Who Ca re as long as they receive a formal version of the settlement from the Johnsons attorneys and the Johnsons are willing to extend the deadline to consider the settlement to Dec. 7, the date of the first court hearing. C ouncilors set a Nov. 29 date for a meeting closed to the public to discuss the P acetta litigation in further detail. Additional meetings to solicit public input will likely follow. W e ve asked for this for a long time, Mayor Gary S mith said. Its finally come, and how it got here is immaterial, but it is here. We would be amiss if we didnt discuss it but we are (curr ently) not prepared to (make a final decision on the settlement option). Although councilors made it clear the citizens group does not represent the Johnsons and the offer cannot be seriously considered until their attorney presents a formal copy of the settlement to them, To wn Attorney Cliff Shepard said he believed the settlement is probably a legitimate offer from the Johnsons. B ut he said there are clear hurdles preventing the To wn from quickly resolving the legal issues. Different notices are required for changes in different regulations, while the process of changing those regulations can take a long time; additionally, the issue of entitlements require multiple changes that are more complicated legally, he said. M ost of those things will not happen before Dec. 7, he said. Tw o former mayors who spoke at the meeting are optimistic an end to the litigation is near. N ancy Epps, a former councilwoman and mayor, urged councilors to look at the case with an open mind. Dont let us against them go into your mind, she said. B efore handing over the mayors seat to Gary Smith, T om Rutledge signed off from his post by encouraging the new council members to compromise based on restoring civility in the town. Any compromise in our current situations should be compromise based on healing, he said. It should be to heal the town and let b ygones be bygones, whatever the system may be. H atchets are buried, no guns to anybodys head, no blame. Just make it work so we can move on. F riday, November 25, 2011 Hometown News A10Po rt Orange/Ponce Inlet So.

Its unemployment rate was 12 percent in O ctober last year. Volusias unemployment rate has hovered over the states throughout this year. Job growth in hospitality seems to have narrowed the gap. V olusia County is a relatively medium-sized county, and hospitality gained 2,200 jobs over the last year, Mr. Fr asier said. hospitality has led the way in creating jobs the last couple months. The nation has fared the protracted economic downturn better than Florida, but is improving more slowly. A ccording to the states economic-opportunity department, last months national, seasonally-adjusted unemployment rate was nine percent. The previous month, it was 9.1 percent. A year ago, the nation had a 9.7 percent unemployment rate, while F loridas was 11.8. Florida has had a higher unemployment rate than the nation since February, 2008. Mr. Frasier said numerous national and international events are putting headwinds against the local economy. For example, Greece and Italy have had debt crises escalate to changes in their governments. How that affects us locally is with all the uncertainty in the world local business people are reluctant to step out and hire people even if they need to, Mr. Frasier said. They dont know what the future holds. I think all of whats happening in the world is making business people hold back. The people that hire people are playing it close to the vest. He said that there are ongoing efforts to spur more localized economic activity to offset the affects of national and international events. For example, he noted, the Volusia County Chamber of Commerce Alliance is hosting the Buy Local Volusia Business Expo. The event will be on Dec. 13, at the Daytona International S peedway. Organizers hope to bring local businesses and shoppers together. The whole idea is to promote buying locally to help stimulate the economy here, Mr. Frasier said. If theyre successful, they can stimulate the economy locally. S tate economists are predicting a slight improvement in holiday spending ov er last year, according to Mr. Frasier. That, he said, should get retailers adding temporary workers, which should add more kindling to the local jobs market. I t will get money in the pocket of people who have been unemployed for awhile, Mr. Frasier said. The next two reports, November and December, should reflect those additional hires for the holiday season. He added, I think what came out in the unemployment reportit wasnt negative.

when theyre caught. He believes he could effectively decrease the hog population if he were able to trap or hunt hogs on the wooded land that lies between the subdivisions and Interstate 95 where the hogs are coming in. B ut he currently does not have permission to trap on that property, currently o wned by ICI Homes, because the property owner r equires certificates of insurance for liability coverage. (The hogs) are on the increase so fast, you have to be able to get in that property to really hurt the population, he said, adding, Ive never had a liability issue come up until this. Doug Ross with ICI H omes said ICI requires the insurance certificates in case there is an accident on the property it owns. The City contacted him and is in the process of providing him the insurance certificates, he said. H andling the hogs is dangerous, Mr. Clark said, adding he had people helping him take the hogs out of traps who had serious injuries. I f they can cut you with their tusks, they will do that, he said. Assistant police chief W ayne Miller said the wild hog problem is ongoing and city staff sees them come out from year to year in different spikes. He said the most recent spike began occurred in the beginning of O ctober in Pinnacle Park. These critters will come out from time to time (in neighborhoods), he said. No hogs caused any landscaping damage last week, but the City is still looking to prevent future reoccurr ences. I m not sure if theyve moved on, he said. But we r e still doing our best to capture them and take care of them. Although the hogs have not attacked residents or their pets, the threat exists as long as they continue coming into the neighborhoods, Mr. Miller said. D iane Minshew, a Sterling Chase resident whose lawn was recently damaged by the wild hogs, said she often sees residents taking walks just outside the wooded land where the hogs are coming in, and fears those people could fall victim to an attack if ICI does not open the area to trapping activity soon. The pigs are out there, she said. Theres people out there all the time and they (ICI) dont do anything about it. People could get hurt there. One Florida-based nonprofit has a little something extra to be thankful for, just in time for Thanksgiving. With the help of Florida Power & Light Company and local contractorsL & S Enterprises and Flair Air Conditioning and Heating, C atholic Church of the E piphany (Daytona E piphany) in Port Orange r eceived a free energy makeover which will help the nonprofit save almost $3,000a year in electric costs. W e are grateful for the churchs important role in the community, said FPL E xternal Affairs Manager Larry Volenec. This is one of the ways we give back to the community we find a nonprofit, and give them a makeover that is going to give them a long-term return on the investments we make here today at no charge to them. FPL and local contractors donated a new highefficiency A/C with a 15 SEER rating, as well as digital programmable thermostats, new lighting, weather stripping and air filters, among other energy-efficient upgrades totaling approximately $10,000. W e are so grateful, said Father John Bosco M aison of Daytona E piphany. Its good timing for this energy makeover to happen for us, just in time for Thanksgiving, which is our busiest season for providing local families with meals and assistance. In addition to the energy-efficiency items, FPL donated $1,000 to the churchs annual Thanksgiving food drive benefitting local families in need.

For Christmas, I never r epeat the turkey dinner. Recipes I have given for rib roast, Virginia ham, lasagna, etc. are great choices. This weeks dinner: Fresh ham. Everyone knows about smoked ham, but not fresh ham. Its not always available in local markets. Fresh ham is ham that has not been smoked or cured.

Each November it is a birthday gift to myself to spend a day alone on the water. While I enjoy company, once in a while a solo trip is good for the soul. As it turned out I had picked a great day. The morning dawned not quite as cool as it had been and the wind that had been blowing for days had finally lain. I launched my 16-foot Carolina Skiff at the public ramps near Tur tle Mound. If you are not sure where that is, find it easily by going out to A1A in New Smyrna Beach and heading south. After about five miles you will encounter a toll booth entrance to Canaveral Na tional Seashore. If you are there to launch at Tur tle Mound there is no charge and the ranger will wave you through. The r amps are only about a quarter-mile past the gate. Whenever I fish the M osquito lagoon my first emotion is always jealousy. I envy the water quality and pristine marine environment that is so sorely lacking in the inshore near my home in Ormond Beach. Right away I could see that this trip would be one of those rare times when the water in the Lagoon is high enough to allow me to go just about anyplace I pleased. I began up around Cedar Cr eek and jigged up a couple small trout right away. With trout season closed I enjoyed the action but I was there with redfish on my mind. Searching farther north I push-poled into the tight mangroves east of the Three Sisters. There my chartreuse jig picked up a feisty undersized red of 14 inches. I was encouraged. At a quarter before 9 a.m. I was just off the mouth of a creek that was maybe 25-feet wide. My first cast into the center of that inlet brought no r esults. Next, I tossed my 1/8 Oz. jig over to the far edge and perilously close to a submerged oyster bar. B efore it had time to settle to the bottom a fish had it and sent up a tell-tale boil. I set the hook and felt the awesome strength that lets y ou know you are attached to a broad shouldered, head shaking, power wagon of a big red. I hustled to get the fish away from the sharp o ysters and when it was ov er the grass I chuckled out loud at my good fortune. Now I could relax and enjoy the fight. By the time I put the net under the fish it had shrunk somewhat from my first estimate but it was still a nice 21-inch red. A good birthday present, indeed. H eading south, I crossed the Government Cut and found the fishing to be a bit slower there. Eventually, I did find a good school of trout near the oyster lease west of the mouth of the Cut. I had several hits and quite a few managed to release with no help from me. The two I landed there would have both been keepers during trout season. By the time I put my boat back on the trailer I had landed three reds and five trout, which made me a pretty happy birthday boy. Now that the great seaweed episode has subsided, the surf is picking up. My neighbor and fishing buddy John R ector landed a nice 20inch red in short order and I am hearing about lots of blues. The big mullet are there, so watch the birds for a clue to the action. If y ou catch it right a cooler of tasty silver mullet can be yours with one throw of a cast net. This is a great time to be fishing. If you miss it, you only have y ourself to blame.

Icannot tell you how many times I have seen a small business open up in my community, say to myself, Oh, thats great, Ill have to get in there, and then drive by months later and realize that I have y et to make that first stop to see what this new venture is all about.This frustrates me. My intentions are good. And maybe if I had seen var ious advertisements reminding me about the place, I would have made that visit. The best part is when its locally o wned; its not just a business, but a person possibly a neighbor or someone I know from the gym or the park or school events. It s personal. I think of the excitement they must have had when first getting the idea for the business, putting it together and actually seeing it take shape. Then, as the excitement slowly fades and the reality of success or failure is in plain view, the realization of such a brave move takes hold. It is all of our responsibility to help our local business people succeed. It is the core of a community. The lifeblood. Without our local business partners, we would be left with only the large national chains with no ties to our community, only looking to take our money and run when times get r ough. So this holiday season, I have made a pact with myself to purchase everything I possibly can from local purveyors. Bikes, music, wine, gourmet food, books, even clothes for my trendy wife can be found in businesses owned by those who live among us. Su re, I might pay a little more, but that extra coin will stay in my community, not be shipped off to some corporate headquarters up north. And by purchasing local, you get hometown service. Its nice to be able to pick up the phone and get an actual person on the line or walk into a place and talk to the same person who sold you an item. Ho liday dinners and parties? Local restaurants only. Theres something to be said about walking into a place where everyone knows y our name. N ot that all locally owned businesses are perfect. Many of them are owned by people who have never been in business for themselves before. But because they dreamed and dared, I think we can cut them a little slack while they work out the kinks. If we stick with them now, think of the gratitude they will show us later. I hope you will join me in patronizing locally owned businesses this holiday season. Because its not just business, its personal.

J ust wander into Best Buy the day after Thanksgiving and check out the unruly mob of shoppers and the long lines at the checkout lanes. Lots of people like to give or r eceive gadgets for the holidays. B ut, which one to choose? Its always a daunting question, even for the experienced gadget freak. He re are some guidelines that might help, from someone who has bought more than his share of cutting-edge electronics over the past 30 years.T abletsNo question about it. Tablets are the hottest thing out there these days and there are an increasing number to choose from. The two top sellers this year are likely to be two new 7-inch models the Amazon Kindle Fire and the Nook T ablet from Barnes & Noble. Both are Android-powered devices but the Nook boasts more storage 16GB versus 8GB on the Fire and is more expandable with a micro SD slot. The biggest appeal of these two new tablets will likely to be their low price $199 for the Fire and $249 for the Nook. No matter which one you choose, thats a real bargain compared to the industry-leading A pple iPad, which starts at about $500.

Give the gift of love... www.bishopsglen.org6V olusia CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 1 Things have been pretty tight this y ear and, like so many others, Im cutting my holiday gift list back considerably. But I still love the spirit of giving that accompanies the holiday season. This year, though, instead of fruitcakes and gag gifts, I want my gifts to help give back to my community. Cr ystal Elkins, Director of Marketing and Events for United Way of V olusia-Flagler Counties, said there are many ways to give gifts that give back. There is so much need out there, she said. So many choices for what and how you can give. One of the easiest and best ways to help the community as a whole is to donate to the U nited Way because youre not just helping one organization or one person. The United Way is an umbrella agency that partners with 36 community non-profits in Volusia and Flagler C ounties. The focus is on the areas of education, income and health. W e believe that these are the building blocks of a better life, Ms. Elkins said. The way the United Way works is that donations are accepted during the annual fundraising campaign, which typically runs from September to March. Then, starting in April, we have a group of 80 to 100 volunteers go thought the grants and applications, Ms. Elkins said. These volunteers, not the United W ay staff, are the ones who make the By Barbara Salter NelsonF or Hometown News HOLIDAY GIFTS Randy Barber /staff photographerThis years holiday ornament from UCP is a sea scallop by artist Kathy McCreery.

Any nerves I might have had going in were washed away the moment owner Becky Cook greeted me with a big smile. Under $10? Ya y, thats me! she said as I surprised her with my mission. She wasnt kidding her store is loaded with a variety of inexpensive gifts, including candles, greeting cards, books and jewelry. The store also has manatee, dog and military sections. Going in, I told myself to be frugal with jewelry selections, afraid that I would end up with a list that looked more appropriate for a department store advertisement. However, I couldnt resist the butterfly necklace. The intricacies in color and design were topnotch and it seemed like a steal at $8.95. 10 UNDER$10 By Casey Prestoncpreston@hometownnewsol.comThousands are still in debt after blowing by their holiday budgets last year. W ant to avoid that this year? Here are some ideas. VOL USIA COUNTY Are those sleigh bells ringing off in the distance? N ope, just another cash register. It s hard to believe, but Black Fr iday, the kick-off of the holiday shopping season, is upon us. One minute you were enjoying a glass of wine as you sat enjoying the crisp autumn air. Now you look down to see a long gift list. F or many people, what is most depressing is the foreknowledge that a few months later that will inevitably be r eplaced with an even longer and scarier list this one from a credit card company. If you fit that description, it may be comforting to know you arent alone. A study from Consumer Reports showed that in 2010, 45-percent of holiday shoppers blew past their intended budget. In fact, as of October 2011, 14 million Americans are still paying off debt from last holiday season. So how can you avoid being a part of that statistic next year? Per haps that answer lies just down the street from you, in a consignment or thrift shop. After all, a gift doesnt have to cost a lot to be appealing. There are typically dozens of items inside in near-perfect condition that are marked at a fraction of retail v alue. Hunting for these treasures will not only help your wallet, but y ou might catch yourself having some fun too. It is certainly possible to make y our family and friends smile without it breaking your bank. A little creativity can go a long way. The following list is here to help get those juices flowing. So to help those who are looking for great gifts on a budget, I visited 10 stores throughout Volusia County in search of gifts under $10 for all family members. Y ou may love some and you may not, but at the very least I hope it provides you with the inspiration to look locally and creatively this holiday season. Ab ov e all, no matter where you shop this season, please dont make the mistake of letting giftgiving take precedence over what truly makes a great holiday season: family, friends and getting together. Good luck. 1See TEN, 30

With all the emphasis on the dangers of obesity and a sedentary lifestyle, maybe even Santa has been busting some moves to lose a few pounds. I bet the reindeer (and Mrs. Claus) would really appreciate that. H elping someone you care about become healthier and more fit is one of the best gifts you can give anyone, said Beverly Johnson, vice president of health strategy for the Volusia Flagler Family YMCA. There are fitness related gifts for everyone in the family from ages 4 to 94. F or adults who arent very active, a membership to a fitness club might be a great way to get them started on a healthier lifestyle. There are a wide variety of gyms and other fitness centers throughout the area, and many cater to beginners. A family membership is an excellent way to do something good for your entire family, including yourself, said Ms. Johnson. A typical youth YMCA monthly membership costs about $20, and a family membership averages $55 per month. M embership fees at the Y are income-based, she said.

D epending on the financial need of the family, they might qualify for up to 50 percent off the regular fees. Ms. Johnson also suggests giving gifts of specialty classes, such as cycling, yoga, pilates, Z umba, kickboxing or swimming for the more active recipients on your gift list. Often times, people get into habits and stick with what they usually do. By going outside the lines, you encourage them to try something new something they really might enjoy while focusing on different parts of their body. There are some new, exciting classes out there. At the Y, for example, were certified to offer the new Les Mills training courses like Body Pump and Body C ombat. Those are new and fun. G yms and fitness centers throughout Volusia County also offer different kinds of classes, including the new boot camp training programs There are individual and group classes for everybody from toddlers to seniors and from chair exercises to the latest intense full-body military style TRX workouts. G ifts of sessions with a personal trainer are also great for the beginning or the seasoned exerciser, she said. In fact, if you give a gift of group personal training to a friend and y ourself, you both have a better chance at sticking with it. B efore starting on any kind of exercise program, though, its important to check with your doctor to make sure you dont have any restrictions or limitations before you begin, said Ms. Johnson. M assages also make an excellent gift, she added. M any times, even if a person does work out, they dont treat themselves to the softer side of fitness like massage. These can be purchased individually or in packages for discounted pricing. G ifts of fitness clothing or gear especially for the folks who are just getting started are always appreciated. A lot of people dread exercising, especially when just starting out, Ms. J ohnson said. They just throw on whatever they have and dont invest in a good outfit. If you give them something cute, colorful and stylish,11V olusia CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 1 Gym bag image courtesy of finishline.com.

14V olusia CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 1 Dont waste energy by unnecessarily pre-heating your oven. Some foods, such as bread and desserts, require preheating, but holiday meal staples such as turkey and ham dont. Keep the oven door closed. Its tempting to check the turkeys roasting progress by opening the oven door, but its not worth the heat-loss and the significant amount of energy required to bring the oven back up to the desired temperature. Instead, turn the oven light on and look through the interior window. Choose glass or ceramic pans for the ov en. Believe it or not these types of pans actually heat faster than metal ones. B ecause they heat faster, cooks can set the temperature 25 degrees lower than the recipe suggests for the same cooking time, which saves on heating costs. Match the size of the pan to the size of the heating element. For example, when using an electric cook top, a 6-inch pan on an 8-inch burner will waste more than 40 percent of the heat produced by the burner. When possible, cover pots and pans. This can help cook food more quickly and keeps the cooking temperature higher, which allows cooks to turn down the stove. Use smaller appliances such as crockpots, microwaves and toaster ovens when possible. These can be much more energy-efficient for side dishes or small meals. Oven-bake as many items together as can. Even though some items may cook at different temperatures, many items can be cooked at a standard temperature. Gently remind guests to turn off lights and fans when they leave the room. S topping one ceiling fan from running all the time and turning at least one light off when you leave the room can save you more than $7 a month in energy costs. R emember, fans do not actually cool thehome. Fans only improve the circulation of air, making people feel cooler. Before overnight guests arrive, switch out guest room and common area lighting to compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs. Each CFL bulb installed will save about $50 in energy costs over the life of the bulb. Save energy, costs while cooking the holiday feast T he holidays get expensive and its not just gifts and toys. It takes a lot of energy to entertain friends and family in the ho me and more energy means more energy costs. FPL offers these energy saving tips that can add up to real savings. Use smaller appliances such as crock-pots, microwaves and toaster ovens when possible. F or more cooking tips, visit www.fpl.com.

perhaps made from the newer dry wicking fabrics, theyll feel better about themselves and are more likely to go to the gym. Pr ices for fitness clothing va ry of course, but I found several ladies moisture wicking tops for less than $20 at local department stores, and bargain hunters who are Internet savvy should be able to stretch their dollars even more. G ym bags also make great gifts, Ms. Johnson said. The new ones are designed to keep your shoes and damp clothes separate. P eople generally dont splurge on nice gym bags for themselves. There are all kinds out there. Ms. Johnson has also been seeing a lot of the innovative, less structured workout shoes. The new Fi veF inger shoes by V ibram are based on the theory that we really dont need as much structure in our sneakers. We we re meant to be barefoot. It makes sense, she explained. Theyre cute and colorful and were seeing a lot more of them. That would be a fun gift. These trendy shoes cost about $100. Locally, you can find them at S pikes Athletic Footwear in Holly Hill or on the Internet. A ccording to Ms. Johnson, some other popular, higher-end fitness gifts include computerand GPS-based fitness trackers. These track everything distance, calories, heart rate, even humidity, altitude and your route. Theyre wonderful for runners, walkers and cyclists. There are a myriad of computer systems out there. They can help keep folks motivated by showing how theyve progressed. These can cost about $200 and more depending on the functions. If yo u re on a tighter budget, a good basic pedometer with no frills can be found for less than $10 at most of the big box stores. F or those who are watching their budget, fitness gifts dont have to be fancy or expensive. W ater bottles are always good gifts. Some of them are more ergonomic and are easier to hold in your hand. They take the pressure off trying to carry one while youre running or working out, said Ms. Johnson. Exercise mats are another gift idea. Most people dont change them out often enough and whether we like to admit it or not, we do sweat! S peaking of sweat, sweatbands and socks make good stocking stuffers and are easy on the budget. A fitness magazine subscription may help continue to motivate the recipient long after the holidays are over. And dont forget about the many D VDs and exercise video games out there. Once you get fitness on the brain, its fairly easy to come up with gift ideas at all price points. But its not always about finding the right present. S ometimes, we forget that we dont necessarily have to buy a gift, Ms. J ohnson said. We can make a commitment as a family to eat healthier and to do something healthy together every day. Thats really the best thing that we can do for each other. Now that is a really great gift.The new FiveFinger shoes by Vibram are based on the theory that we really dont need as much structure in our sneakers. We were meant to be barefoot. It makes sense. Theyre cute and colorful and were seeing a lot more of them.

29V olusia CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 1 The holidays are here and that means shoppers have started to stockpile gifts for those they love. Once the shopping rush is over, the time to wrap all of those great finds and treasures has come. Although some people are gift-wrap gurus, there are many others who feel that their wrapping skills are lacking. R egardless, anyone can create delightful wrapped gifts with a little know-how.PrepareThe first step to wrapping is to have all of the supplies in one place. There are some people who have actually dedicated small rooms as gift-wrap stations. While you dont have to go this far, find a large table and keep your tape, tags, paper, ribbon, scissor, pen, and other accessories nearby. Also, sort out the gifts according to r ecipient and have any gift receipts handy to wrap up with the gift. Wr ap at a time when there are no distractions and you can devote your attention to the task at hand, like after children have gone to bed or during the day when no one is home.P aper or bags?When purchasing wrapping paper, it may be tempting to skimp on the quality of the paper to save money. How ever, a thicker, higher quality paper will make wrapping go more smoothly. Thats because it will be less likely to tear on boxes or when youre r olling out and cutting it. Thicker paper means youll also be able to achieve more intricate folds and better creasing around boxes. It also may be more forgivable around oddly shaped items. G ift bags are the go-to wrapping medium when youre short on time or have items that are not easily wrapped with paper. Because they come in a variety of sizes and even giant plastic bags to contain large gifts they are often more convenient.Other tipsThere are different tips that can help with wrapping. Buy neutral-patterned wrapping paper that coordinates with other papers. This way if you run out of one type of paper you can stagger other pieces and make a collage of papers so theres no waste. Use ribbon to dress up a gift and direct the eye away from any imperfections. Keep a stack of paper scraps and use it instead of tissue paper to fill in gift bags. Keep scissors sharp for clean cuts. Pack smaller items or oddly shaped things into a different container that is easier to wrap. Roll up clothing and place into a paper towel tube to turn the wrapping into a candy cane shaped gift.

He offers customers 70-percent off the v alue of each book, or 80-percent should the customer come in for a trade. Not surprisingly, his biggest sellers are romance and vampire books, although he has a large war section as well. This particular book by S tanley Karnow is a history of the Vietnam War and was featured on television during the week of Veterans Day, Mr. Brown said. In a day when books are becoming increasingly obsolete, shelling out $8 for a piece of history like this seems like money well-spent. Owner Janet Lustiks store offered so many gifts perfect for this list that I had to include this as well. This is one of a few dozen artwork pieces at Ms. Lustiks store. Some are more than $10, but prices are very negotiable, she said. Canvas art like this would make a great addition to a coastal Florida home and, at the starting price of $8, it is hard to pass up. I remember as a child forcing more than my fair share of smiles after r eceiving a new pair of long johns or tube socks, but I never turned down a stuffed animal.

34V olusia CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 1 The holidays are a festive time of y ear, but they can also prove stressful for the millions of people who travel to visit friends and family or use time off during the holidays to go on vacation. Because so many people travel during the holidays, airports are more crowded than usual and the nations roadways often experience heavy traffic, especially on the days immediately before and after a holiday. While theres not much travelers can do to reduce the number of fellow travelers come the holiday season, there are certain dos and donts that can make holiday travel much easier. DO plan ahead. Leaving holiday travel plans until the last minute is a r ecipe for disaster. Some air travelers feel its more affordable to book flights in the weeks leading up to the holidays rather than months in advance. While its possible to find last minute airline deals, its very possible such deals will put travelers on standby. Thats potentially disastrous during a travel season that has frequent flight delays or cancellations due to inclement weather. Book travel plans as early as possible to avoid the hassles of last minute bookings. DONT blame airport staff if things go awry. The holiday season can be stressful for those who have to travel, but its exceedingly stressful for the men and women who work in the travel industry. Airline employees, particularly those who work at ticket counters, are too often treated poorly by travelers who need someone to blame for flight delays and cancellations. The same goes for the people who work at bus or train stations. R egardless of how inconvenient interrupted travel plans can be, its never the fault of the person working at the airport. Its often a result of inclement weather, which is something no one can control. DO insure your trip. As mentioned above, flight delays and cancellations are common during the holiday season. Heavy snowfall can wreak havoc on travel plans, even for those people who live in relatively temperate climates. Travelers traveling to or from r egions where heavy snowfall is a possibility should always protect themselves against flight cancellations or delays by insuring their trips. I nsurance is often inexpensive and can protect travelers if their flight plans go awry. DONT try to make up for lost time. While theres little air travelers can do to make up for lost time, those traveling by automobile often try to make up for lost time by driving aggressively. Nothing could be more dangerous, as the roads are often overcrowded and driving conditions during the holidays are rarely ideal. Even if a traffic jam or other delay makes it impossible to stick to your travel schedule, dont risk disaster with aggressive driving. Instead, call your destination and explain you will be a little late because of delays on the r oadway. No matter where you are going, be it a hotel or to a friend or family members house, they will understand the situation and they will certainly prefer you get there safe and sound. DO be an early bird. The early bird gets the worm, and when it comes to holiday travel, the early bird can also significantly reduce the stress of traveling. If traveling by air, get to the airport extra early. This way you wont have to fret when the lines at baggage check or security checkpoints are long. If traveling via automobile, get up early and hit the road before most drivers are even out of bed.

35V olusia CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 1 C ome the holiday season, most people find themselves in a giving mood. Gifting friends, family and even coworkers is common, but there are many other people in our daily lives who societal norms suggest deserve a gift as well. Ho liday tipping is more common in certain areas than others, but there are a few questions men and women can ask themselves when trying to decide if a person in their lives deserves a holiday tip or gift.How often do you see the person?How frequently you see a person can help determine if that person deserves a holiday gift or tip. For example, a childs babysitter or nanny deserves a little something extra come the holidays because you likely see that person on a regular basis. The same goes for the postman or a dog walker. Men and women you rarely see or rarely need do not warrant a tip or gift.Where do you live?Where a person lives also goes a long way toward determining a holiday tip or gift. People who live in apartments should show their appreciation to the doorman and building superintendent with a tip or gift. H omeowners need not tip their local handyman, however, even if he performs the same tasks as a building superintendent. Homeowners tend to do more of their own fix-ups around the house, while apartment dwellers often rely on the super to keep their apartment in tip-top shape.Is the person a professional?M en and women who provide professional services, such as accountants, lawyers and doctors, do not warrant a tip during the holidays. These professionals are already paid handsomely for their services, and many might even gift their customers. For those who have an especially strong relationship with their accountant, lawyer, etc., perhaps a gift such as a bottle of wine might be a nice gesture. But its certainly not mandatory.Did the person go above and beyond?Of course, there are no ironclad rules when it comes to tipping or gifting others during the holidays. For example, many people dont find it necessary to tip their auto mechanic come the holidays for the same reasons you wouldnt tip an attorney. Both are already well compensated, and an extra tip is not necessary. However, if your auto mechanic saved your car from the scrap heap or provided service that is above and beyond what you have a right to expect, then perhaps a tip or a thoughtful gift is in order. When the holiday season arrives, generosity often reigns. But men and women should not feel obligated to tip or gift every person in their lives.WHO AND HOW TO TIP DURING THE HOLIDAYS Metrocreativeconnection.comF or Hometown News A childrens Consignment store $5.00OFF$10.00OFFAny purchase of $25.00 or more Any purchase of $50.00 or more Holiday Gift Certificates AvailableDaytona Flea &Farmers Market Located in Booths (Corner Shops) 71 &72 386-334-0432K elly and MikeClean & FriendlyBroad array of body art from client renderings to specific artistry.Stingray Tattoo Stingray Stingray Tattoo TattooOver 50 Years Combined Experience 30% OFF 30% OFF20% OFF 20% OFFALL VITAMINSOffer Expires 12/31/11 Must Present Coupon Offer Expires 12/31/11 Must Present CouponALL GIFT ITEMSWe have Hoodia S S a a n n t t a a s s H H e e a a l l t t h h y y G G i i f f t t s s S S t t a a r r t t a a t tMichaelsHealth FoodContemporary Plaza 661 Beville Rd.

Each agency goes through a rigorous review process to make sure the donor dollar are going to programs that actually work and are meeting the needs of the community, Ms. Elkins said. The easiest way to turn a holiday gift into something meaningful is to give a cash donation in someone elses name. M y parents, who are both retired and live in Daytona Beach, told me a few months ago that instead of the (usual holiday) scramble of deciding what to give people, theyre going to give something that will help everybody, Ms. Elkins said. Guess I just let the cat out of the bag for my familys gifts! The United Way create certificates saying a donation has been made in the recipients honor and you can present them yourself. To learn which agencies fall under the United Ways umbrella, you can go to their website, www.unitedwayvfc.org. Unless specified, your donation will become part of a pool that will help support all of the agencies services and programs. In addition to making a donation to the United Way or other charitable organization in someones name, there are other things you can give that will not only please the folks on y our gift list, but will also help make a difference and help our community. F ollowing are just a few.Holiday Cards Help F eed Our Neighbors Theres a big need for food right now, said Ms. Elkins. A lot of our food banks are striving to meet the demands that are constantly arising and during the holidays theres always that extra push. Everyone wants to make sure that the families and the needy really have access to a good meal during the holidays. F or the past decade, the Second Ha rv est Food Bank has presented a wonderfully innovative gift alternative that makes a huge difference. Their U nwrapping Hope Holiday Card program is easy, inexpensive, and more importantly, each card purchased provides meals for 20 people in your area. He re s how it works. You buy a specially designed holiday greeting card from them for a donation of $5 or more. They will personalize the card and mail it to the people or businesses on your list letting them know that youve made a donation to the Second Harvest Food B ank in their behalf and that their gift will provide food to those in need throughout the year.

But if you just want to find out what the big deal is about tablets, and dont want to spend an arm and a leg, the Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet probably will be good choices. Both tablets will be capable of streaming HD video (albeit from different specific collections) and tapping into each stores respective music and print libraries as well as running a special collection of apps. Both are wi-fi only. No 3G option. Pr ices are dropping quickly on the many of the iPad wanna-bes out there, including the Samsung G alaxy Tab, Toshiba Thrive, Motorola Xoom, Acer Iconia and others. E xpect most of those to be quite a bit cheaper than a comparable iPad (although probably not as cheap as the Fire) after Thanksgiving, if not earlier. All run on the Android operating system, which will look and feel different from the custombuilt versions of the same OS used on the Kindle Fire and Nook Tablet. Any of those larger tablets would be a good choice if you want a bigger screen than the Fire and Nook have but dont want to spend the big bucks for an iPad. Expect to pay between $300 and $450, depending on the size and features. M any tablets offer the same 3G option as the iPad but the best advice is to skip that unless you are sure you need it. A tablet that can access the cellular network is not only more expensive on the front end, it costs the user $30 a month or more for a data plan. Wi-fi only tablets dont require a data plan. Also, you probably should avoid the no-name tablets. They may cost a lot less but theres a reason for that. No-name tablets are likely to suffer from poor reliability and build quality, dated or closed operating systems, and/or a lack of applications that will run on them. If price is no object, the iPad is still the best of the bunch.E-book readersThis was a hot category last year and is likely to be even hotter this y ear, again thanks to Amazon. It has cut the price on its base Kindle e-reader to $79, about $50 less than last year. That model would be the best choice if you want the best deal and are a big reader. The black and white e-ink screen on the K indle is easier on the eyes over the long haul than color models and is r eadable even in bright sunlight. If you want to spend a little more and like the idea of a touch screen, there are two good choices: For $99, y ou can get a touch screen version of the Kindle or the competing Bar nes & Noble Nook Simple T ouch. Barnes & Noble recently slashed the price of its Nook by $40 so it can compete head to head with the Kindle. These two readers are very similar so the decision comes down to personal taste. S tudy each model, including the libraries they can access, and choose the one you like the best. M ost color tablets can also be used as e-readers but dont work as well as the dedicated black and white r eaders, whose e-ink displays most closely mimic the printed page. S till, Barnes & Noble does make a color version of its Nook e-reader and recently cut the price from $250 to $199.SmartphonesThese gadgets are always a popular choice for gift-giving, since almost everyone can use one and new models seem to hit storeGiftsF rom page 4 See GIFTS, 41 142 East Granada Blvd.Ormond Beach,FL 32176 386.672.9903 BUY 2 GET 1 FREE FINE JEWELRY HOME DECOR STATIONERY GIFTSSame products that were used at the Royal Wedding!Of equal or lesser value.BUY 2 GET 1 FREE

A pples new iPhone 4S is a good choice for Apple fans and newcomers to the smartphone world, since the OS is arguably better than the many Android competitors and the apps are often more capable. And with prices starting around $199 (with 2 year contract), it wont break the bank. Opt for the older, but almost as capable iPhone 4 if money is tight it starts at $99, half the price of the 4S .Or the even older iPhone 3GS, which in some cases, is free with a two-year contract. The iPhone 4 looks almost identical to the 4S but lacks the 4S internal improvements, including a faster processor and better camera. On the Android front, the choices are more numerous and complicated. Among the newest offerings is the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, due in mid-November and the first to run on the new Android 4 operating system code named Ice Cream S andwich. This dual-core phone is 4G LTE capable, the fastest data service available, and has a larger screen than the iPhone. Prices have not been set but expect to pay between $200 and $300 (with contract) to have this latest and greatest smartphone. Other options include the less popular Windowsbased and Blackberry phones. Steer clear of those unless you need any special features they may offer. A pple and Android are now the dominant players in the cell phone marketplace. F or those who dont need the latest technology but still want the convenience of a cell phone, consider a pay-as-you go service like Tracfone. If you dont need a lot of minutes or the most modern smart phone, you can get a years worth of cell phone service for less than $9 a month (You also have to buy the phone, which generally costs from $20 to $50).HDT VsPr ices continue to fall on HDTVs, while the feature-set improves. The sweet spot can found in the 46-inch to 50-inch models, which are now going for as little as $500 and are likely to go even lower as the holidays approach. The price of 32inch models is now routinely below $300. That could make HDTVs a good choice for gift-giving this y ear. The big push this holiday season, however, will be the more expensive models with wired or wireless I nternet connectivity, which is usually tied to a feature often called S mart TV. These TVs have built-in apps, similar to the ones found on smartphones. There are lots of different apps but most consumers probably will focus on those that allow for the direct streaming of movies or TV shows, including Hu lu, Vudu, Netflix, CinemaNow, B lockbuster and others. Y ou can also buy standalone boxes from a variety of companies that do much the same thing or B lu-ray players that include the S mart TV feature. In concept, this is a good idea. But the implementation is lacking in my experience. S mart TV features can be slow and clunky, and just dont bring much usefulness to the party unless you dont have cable. They are certainly not worth paying a huge premium for. D itto for the other HDTV gimmick that was the hot ticket last y ear, 3D. It works, but content is limited and you need to buy a special 3D Blu-ray player to watch 3D Blu-ray movies and the glasses y ou have to wear are a pain. If you can get 3D or smart TV for little or no extra money, go for it. But generally speaking youre better off sticking with a good basic HDTV. Look for a name-brand LCD or plasma model in the size that best fits your budget with 1080p resolu-GiftsF rom page 40 See GIFTS, 42

Picture quality and reliability have improved to the point now where almost all available models are very good. However, if you want a TV with the widest viewing angles, go for a plasma set. If price is no object, go for the absolutely huge 80-inch LCD HDTVs that are available this year. C ost: about $5,000.GPSLike nearly every other electronic device, the cost of standalone GPS units has been falling fast in recent y ears. They start at less than $100 and you can get a top of the line model, with voice recognition for around $300. While the el-cheapo models work, most consumers will be happier with a more advanced model with features like text-tospeech (the names of the roads are spoken), lane-assist (tells you more about the next turn, including the number of turn lanes, which side of the road the exit is on), and Bluetooth (pairs with your Bluetooth phone for hands-free phone calls). S tick with a name brand, like Gar min, Tom-Tom or Magellan and go for at least a 4.3-inch screen. The larger 5-inch screens dont cost a lot more so if you like idea of a bigger screen, go for it. Speech r ecognition, which allows you to control the device with voice commands, also is a convenient feature but sometimes it is not well implemented. Check online reviews before you buy. Lifetime maps and traffic service are also are desirable features if you plan to keep the GPS unit for more than a year.Odds and endsIf you or someone you know suffers from remote control clutter, solve it with a unified remote that allows you control everything with one device. I have tried lots of them but the best I have found is the Har mony One from Logitech. It handles up to 15 devices and all programming is done via the Har mony One Web site, so there are no frustrating multi-number codes to enter. And when you are done, its easy to start your TV, stereo r eceiver, cable box, DVD or Blu-ray player and gaming devices with one touch. The customizable LCD touch screen on the Harmony One is activity-based. So to watch TV, you simply choose Watch TV and all the correct devices come on with all the right settings. Ditto for Play V ideo Games or Play DVD. The Harmony One is not cheap between $150 and $200, and the setup can be challenging. But it can save you a lot of headaches and allow you to shove all those other r emote controls into a drawer somewhere. (Harmony also makes less expensive versions starting at around $30 that can be programmed online.) Another good inexpensive gift from someone who has an iPod or other music device that supports B luetooth is a good pair of wireless B luetooth stereo headphones. Ev eryone who has ever used earbuds knows the cord that connects the earpieces to the player can be a pain. Bluetooth headphones, which cost between $30 and $100, allow y ou to get rid of the cord, without loss of sound quality. Shop online for the best selection and price since these gadgets are scarce and expensive in area most retail stores. H appy holiday shopping.GiftsF rom page 41
