PONCE INLET This week city staff began interviewing seven hopefuls to become the towns newest top cop. To wn Manager Jeaneen Clauss conducted a round of initial interviews with the finalists who were chosen from a field of 78 applicants. The remaining candidates for the job are Kenneth Bell, Jay Cuddy, Cheryl Degroff, Matthew Doughney, Frank Fabrizio, Roland LaCroix and Brian Lock. Ms. Clauss said an eighth finalist, K enneth Wynne, a lieutenant for the administrative services bureau of the Orange County Sheriffs Office, withdrew from the running. A new police chief will be selected following two or three interviews with each finalist and narrowing the field down further from the seven, she said. I expect there will be a process of elimination of a few folks, she said.

That swelled to more than 100 after fellow county council member Josh Wagner of Port Orange teased him about social media ineptitude during a recent meeting. I really havent been paying attention to (Facebook) at all, Mr. Bruno said in a telephone interview. Some friends said, Frank, you should be on Facebook. I didnt even know what a wall was, to be honest. A wall shows a Facebook users postings. Its also a medium for sending public messages to other Facebook users. Mr. Bruno, 65, said his wife, Mary, is posting on his F acebook page and accepting friend requests. S ocial networking sites are an increasingly integral part of everyday communications. According to Facebook, the average user has 130 online friends. About 800 million people are on the site at least once a month. It has become an important marketing tool for businesses and been embraced by many politicians as a vital tool for campaigns and beyond. B ut the rapid proliferation of social media has raised many questions about how public officials can and should use it. For example, in 2009 the states Judicial E thics Advisory Committee advised judges against becoming Facebook friends with lawyers who might appear before them. More r ecently, the City of Asheville, N.C., put two employees on Cities to hold tree lightings this weekendIt will start to look a lot like Christmas in some cities this weekend. S outh Daytona, Port Orange and Ponce Inlet have holiday-themed events scheduled for this w eekend.South DaytonaS outh Daytona will mark the beginning of the holiday season today with its Christmas Tree Lighting Cer emony at City Hall, 1672 S outh Ridgewood Avenue, at 6:30 p.m. The event will feature an address from Mayor George Locke, the lighting of the city Christmas tree, musical entertainment, an arts and crafts table, light r efreshments and a visit from Santa Claus. R ecreation program director Ivy Evans said this y ears tree lighting will include holiday music by B aileys Best and caroling for the audience. W e re going to hand out a little bit of sheet music with the words to songs if (people who attend) want to sing along, she said. In past years, Ms. Evans said, the city lit a tree that didnt light up like a Christmas tree. But this year, there is an all-new, more festively decorated tree. S he hopes many citizens will turn out to see the new tree as well as to partake in the other festivities that help ring in the holiday season. W e have a lot of exciting things going on this year, she said. We always try to hold it (the tree lighting ceremony) in the beginning of December. Once we light the tree, it feels like the beginning of the holiday season for the community.P ort OrangePo rt Oranges Tree Lighting Ceremony and Community Choir will take place Saturday at 6:30 p.m. at City Center.

VOL USIA COUNTY J udy Conte is an unapologetic firebrand for public education. A bluntspeaking frequent critic of the Florida Legislature, shes butted heads with the Volusia T eachers Organization and voted to close schools with visible steeliness in front of angry citizens. Now, shes the new Volusia County School Board vice-chair. Ms. Conte has been on the board 19 years, and hopes to remain until at least 2016. Her seat is up for election next year. I had thought of possibly not running again, she said. But this is a precarious time for education and I believe so strongly in its importance. I think its more important to people than they know. Ms. Conte, who represents the Ormond Beach area, hasnt filed with the V olusia County Department of Elections for a 2012 run, but said she has picked up the needed paperwork and will be running. In 1963, Ms. Conte graduated from Seabreeze High School. Or, as she calls it, the real Seabreeze High School. The school used to be where Daytona Lagoon is currently located. She headed to Daytona Beach Community College, now Daytona State College, and later F lorida State University. Then she returned to her S eabreeze to teach English, and give generations of students a repeated lesson in commas and patriotism. I was there when they inserted under God in the P ledge, she said. I had to learn it. I dont like it, but if yo u re going to say it, say it r ight. Theres no comma before under God, and adding a pause before it changes the meaning. Ms. Conte has been an unabashed critic of many education policies enacted by the Florida Legislature in r ecent years; she believes a deliberate dismantling of public education is happening. The move is to privatize public schools, she said. I t s sold to the public as a means to giving less fortunate students what they call an equal break. But, I think the logic there is to make public schools more like priv ate schools. The Florida Legislature has shifted more funding from public schools to charter schools and other education options in recent years. F or example, in the last session, the legislature designated all of the states Public E ducation Capital Outlay funds to charter schools. PECO funds help schools do anything related to capital expenditures, from construction to buying new desks or computers. Volusia has nine charter schools with 11 campuses among them. Charter schools are hybrids: private schools that operate under charters granted by public school districts. Students attend charter schools for free. There were 1,916 Volusia students in charter schools during the recent 20-day count. Ms. Conte is opposed to the legislature-proposed Religious Freedom Amendment. The proposed 2012 ballot measure would revise the Florida Constitution to allow education vouchers to be used at religious schools. The American Civil Liberties U nion and others have filed suit to keep it off the ballot. Ms. Conte said shes skeptical that its supporters have considered how the amendment would operate with the state and federal constitutions prohibitions against F riday, December 2, 2011 Hometown News A2Po rt Orange/Ponce Inlet So.

www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 2, 2011 A3Po rt Orange/Ponce Inlet So. Daytona/Daytona Beach ShoresIn 1890 when Henry Flagler bought the big Hotel Ormond and began to expand it from 75 rooms to 400 there was probably a lot of snickering done behind his back. The original o wners John Anderson and Joseph Pr ice could not come close to filling the rooms that already existed. The hotel was in a remote area, difficult to get to and Florida tourism was not yet on the horizon. It would be the unexpected arrival of yo ung William K. Vanderbilt Jr. in 1904 that would suddenly make Ormond B each a desirable destination for the nations wealthy. When Willie K. set the worlds speed record on the beach in his Mercedes, the hotel was filled with y oung socialites who had come to witness the event and be a part of the fun. People with last names like Bor den, Astor, Pullman and Gould began to buy up the prime riverfront property just north of the hotel on what is now John Anderson Drive. After the huge success of the 1904 winter speed tournament, Flagler set about making his influential guests a bit more comfortable. He began by ordering the worlds first facility to house and r epair r acecars to be built on hotel property. The Ormond Gar age was completed in the summer of 1904. Soon after, he began to contemplate a premier golf course to complement his growing r esort. When the land on the H alifax was sold, the property extended all the way to the Atlantic O cean. Flagler asked the owners if they would be willing to donate their useless palmetto and sandspur covered back lots for his new 18-hole course. In return he offered each a lifetime membership in the new country club. All agreed. That was a pretty shrewd bit of negotiating by anyones standards. When all of the work was finally completed, The Hotel Ormond was the worlds largest resort and a Mecca for w ell-heeled visitors trying to escape the harsh northern winters. It would r emain so until the 1940s when the fickle elite would move further south to Palm Beach. M any of those fine old riverfront homes still exist and on Dec. 11 from 1 p .m. to 5:30 p.m. the Ormond Beach H istorical Society will offer a once in a lifetime opportunity for visitors to see a select few of them inside and out on the Fifth Annual Holiday Tour of Homes. One of the most impressive is Ro wallan, a rambling traditional Br itish style mansion built in 1913 by N ew York department store magnate Alexander Lindsay. Rowallan, named for a Scottish castle, is now owned by T ony and Stacey Steel and their two children Ben and Emma. The Steels had their eye on the home for some time when it became available in 2010, and even though they were living in S ingapore, they bought the house and made the long move to Ormond B each. Now the Steels have graciously consented to open their home for the tour. The stately old mansion originally contained 28 rooms and many of the walls are covered with hand painted murals depicting scenes of Florida landscapes and wildlife. Tastefully done in muted tones of gray and pale blue, the murals offer a nice contrast to the striking dual staircase that greets you in the foyer. In 1988, Ro wallan was added to the U.S. National Historic R egister. To see Rowallan and four other J ohn Anderson Drive homes plus The C asements (winter home of J ohn D. R ockefeller) and the Anderson Pr ice M emorial B uilding call the Historical So ciety at (386) 6777005. Tickets ($25) are limited and the tour will be conducted by shuttle bus only. If y ou enjoy history and fine architecture, this is the dont miss event of the season. The Society will accept r eservations Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. All proceeds will be used to support their historical conservation efforts.LAND LINESD AN SMITH Peek into other peoples homes legally on holiday tour Rowallan/Steel home at 253 John Anderson Drive.Photo coutesy of Ormond Beach Historical Society Pappas, Russell & RawnsleyY our Hometown LawyersAuto Accidents Motorcycle Accidents Medical Malpractice DUI Criminal Defense Divorce213 Silver Beach Ave. Daytona Beach, FL32118386.254.2941Sponsored by: Do you have legal questions? erussell@pappasrussell.com The Legal Corner NEW WELLS REPLACEMENT WELLS PUMP REPLACEMENT IRRIGATION INSTALLATION & DESIGN let us be your drinking water source 10% OFFANY WELL REPAIR SERVICE CALL Ask About Our 5 Yr.

the interview process. The qualifications Ms. Clauss looked for in candidates included experience in police work, she said, giving highest consideration to those who served with the r ank of captain in a larger agency or as a police chief for a smaller agency. S he also expected candidates to have executive development training, as w ell as a Bachelors degree or higher. The vacancy opened up following the death of Police Chief Wayne Lurcock on the morning of Sept. 26. Chief Lur cock had three decades of law enforcement experience and served on Ponce I nlets force since 1999. P olice department spokesman Lt. Max Binz, who is also serving as acting police chief in the wake of Chief Lurcocks death, said the eight finalists were handpicked by the town manager and other city staff members. Lt. Binz met the qualifications and was offered the job but did not wish to pursue the opportunity. W e had gone through all the requirements, (and) I had turned down the position, he said. Ms. Clauss said the person chosen for the job will lead an accredited and well-managed department. W e have a great little police department here, she said. Were very fortunate we dont have a police department that has issues that need to be overcome. It s the right job for the right person. T wo of the candidates, Mr. C uddy and Mr. Doughney, have professional ties to V olusia County. Mr. Cuddy served with the Ormond Beach Police D epartment from 1978 to 2009, beginning as a patrol officer and retiring as a division chief. Mr. Doughney served for two decades with the Daytona Beach Police Department before becoming police chief of the city of Av on Park, located in Highlands County near Lakeland, in 2008. Last year he stepped down as police chief. Mr. Bell currently serves as police chief of the town of V an Buren, Ark., where he ov ersees 42 certified police employees and a $3.6 million annual budget for his department. He has also served as a security officer for St. Edward Hospital in Fo rt S mith, Ark. and as a military police sergeant with the U.S. Army. Ms. D egroff, the only female in the running, served on the Orlando P olice D epartment from 1983 to 2003, retiring under the rank of captain. She is currently the bureau chief of administrative services for the Florida Office of Agricultural Law Enforcement. Mr. Fabrizio is a captain with the Orange County S heriffs Office, where he has worked for almost 30 years. Mr. LaCroix is currently chief of police at the University of Maine in Orono, Me., a position hes held since 2008. Prior to that, he spent nearly three decades as a commander and lieutenant for the Orange County Sheriffs Office. Mr. Lock is the police chief of the city of West Melbourne, serving as the Breva rd C ounty citys top police employee since 1990.

Trying to understand the multitude of Social Security regulations, standards and procedures can be a daunting task for any potential claimant. Although attorneys and representatives handling disability claims often give advice as to ways to maximize the chances of getting a claim approved, many times disabled individuals with solid claims are denied because of things that they should not have done, or things that they should have done but failed to do. Below are the 5 most common mistakes that I see individuals filing for Social Security Disability make which hurt or eliminate their chances of being awarded disability benefits. 1. Waiting too long to apply The quicker you apply for disability after recognizing that you will not be able to remain in the workforce, the quicker your period of eligibility for disability benefits is protected. Waiting too long to apply for benefits can r esult in the loss of your disability insured status; meaning that even if you are physically or mentally disabled, you will not qualify for benefits because you will not have enough credits to be insured. Although you may still qualify for disability under the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program, strict financial requirements have to be met for eligibility under SSI. Also, upon approval, claimants that apply for SSD are only entitled to receive back benefits not exceeding 1 year before their application date regardless of the date they are found to be disabled. (Those that qualify for SSI are only entitled to receive benefits from the date of their application) Therefore, promptly applying for disability benefits may result in receiving a larger back benefit award. 2. Not giving Social Security complete information Frequently, I see disability denials where the information used by Social Security to evaluate the claim is incomplete. First of all, make sure you disclose all of your medical providers and their contact information in your initial application. Social Security is not going to hunt down this information from you if it is not provided to them in the beginning.Secondly, disclose all of your medical conditions to the Social Security Administration. Too often I see claimants that focus only on a specific condition that they believe is causing them the most problems. However, the Social Security Administration is required to consider all of your medical conditions, individually and in combination, to determine whether you are disabled. Be sure to be specific as to the symptoms you are experiencing for each condition.Finally, when it comes to your past relevant work, be detailed in the description of your physical and mental activities. 3. Focusing on medical conditions and not on limitations The magic word in the world of real estate is location.The magic word in Social Security Disability law is limitations. You have to be specific as to the physical or mental limitations that you have as a result of your disabling medical conditions. Quite frequently I see claimants who tell me that the reason why they believe they cannot work is because of their bad back, heart, depression, etc. These medical conditions are not limitations. Limitations are the individual physical and/or mental restrictions caused by the symptoms flowing from your medical conditions. In other words, in what ways are you limited in doing certain activities as a result of your medical conditions? Why are limitations so important? Because depending on the degree of your limitations the most important factor in performing and keeping employment will be eliminated: Reliability. If you are not reliable to perform a job as it is normally performed, you will not be able to keep competitive employment. So, remember to focus on your physical or mental limitations. 386.760.0199Accepting fine furniture & home furnishings for consignment.

The campaign continues through Dec. 31, with deputies taking a zero tolerance approach to violators. And the r eason is simple: seat belts save lives, but only if theyre used. T wo additional Click It or Ticket campaigns have been scheduled for next year, between March 18-31, 2012 and May 5-June 3, 2012. This is a high priority for our deputies, said Volusia County S heriff Ben Johnson. Seat belts are an absolute life-saver, and anything that we can do through enforcement to heighten awareness and increase their use will improve safety for the motoring public. D eputies, meanwhile, will also be stepping up efforts to target impaired drivers. Again, highway safety and the reduction of traffic crashes, deaths and injuries is the goal. The Sheriffs Offices traffic unit will be conducting several DUI enforcement initiatives during the holidays and through the New Year. The initiatives are scheduled for the holiday periods as well as var ious weekends, at locations throughout the county. Volusia County S heriffs OfficeF or Hometown NewsV olnews@hometownnewsol.com

R ecently the City of South Daytona published a legal notice to conduct a public hearing on Dec. 13, for the purpose of issuing up to $30 million worth of bonds to finance the purchase of the FPL distribution facilities in South Daytona. One must question whether a city of this size should really indebt the residents for this tremendous amount of money over the next 35 years, especially without a vote of the citizens. Furthermore, can South Daytona realistically guarantee the ability to supply power and services at a rate equal to, or lower than, FPL or any other utility in Florida during this period of time, as they claim?In response to: People on welfare should be drug testedThe drug testing for welfare is a great idea, and I agree with the writer. The new people applying are not the problem, its the people who have been on welfare for years and know the system. Those peoplealready know that welfare workers dont check up or visit their homes to see if they r eally are using tax dollars for the children or for theirdrugs use and their own clothes, while thekids go without. That is where the drug testing should be done.Protesters need to have a message that makes sensePer haps those who occupied Wall Street and locally, a similar imitation, should have watched the 85th Macys Day Thanksgiving Parade. Although the protestors think the government creates jobs, it does not. Business people create jobs. A partial list of the evil, greedy corporations who made possible the popular Macys parade: Macys itself, along with McDonalds, Delta Airlines, Planters Peanuts, Office Max, Energizer Batteries, Sony, Hess, Hilton Hotels, U niversal Studios, Disney, Kool Aid, Pillsbury Inc. and Mortons Salt.These dont include the corporations who sponsored the three-hour parade enjoyed by millions of Americans. Perhaps someday people who wish to protest something, get it straight first and have a message that makes sense.

Ridgewood Ave., No. 22 South Daytona, FL 32119 LettersWe need to get back to the real meaning of ChristmasChristmas is upon us once more and its truly a shame to see the TV commercials along with mailboxes full of ads. Ev en the parents are dragging the children out all hours of the day and night into the crowded stores, where they need not be, to buy something that is on the store shelf all year long. This is just commercialism for the money hungry CEOs, who work their employees these ridiculous hours. That is not what Christmas is about; this is greed and trying to get more than your neighbor. All this commercialism is an embarrassment. I bet a person could not find 10 children who know the real meaning of Christmas, without mentioning getting toys.Parents teach the children that they have to get a lot of presents and everything they want for Christmas, but before the day is over, these children are back watching TV or playing on the computer. What happen to Christmas, the faith, love, sharing and enjoyment of family and friends, most of all the compassion for the true meaning of the holiday? We need to bring that back for our society to survive, for if we do not have compassion, love and faith we have nothing. S heila Dillon Po rt Or angeWhy are there so many commercials when we pay for TV?R emember when you could buy a TV, put an antenna on the roof and watch TV? Sure, they had commercials, but thats what paid for the program and maybe you only had a handful of channels but there was always something to watch. The good part was that there was no monthly bill, and the commercials were only a minute or two, just enough time to get a snack from the kitchen. Now, we must pay for watching TV, so why do we have more commercials than ever? Every 10 minutes we have 12 or more commercials. Now, you cannot only get a snack, but you can take a shower and eat dinner without missing your show. Is it just me or does anyone else realize that they are showing us 60 to 80 commercials an hour? Ambulance chasing lawyers, noisy car commercials and more cable commercials than you can shake a stick at. We are paying for this. And we have over a hundred channels to choose from. I can only find three that I like. Most people that I spoke to only watch two to four channels. The bad thing is that if I watch my channels in the afternoon, the same shows are on again in the evening. If you want to watch a movie, now you pay again. I would really like to know if there is a government agency that has some control over this. The cable companies are a monopoly and they can charge whatever they want and shove commercials down your throat.

www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 2, 2011 A7Po rt Orange/Ponce Inlet So. Daytona/Daytona Beach ShoresCatholic Church makes changes to English MassPeace be with you. A nd also with you. That exchange is recognized by Catholics around the world as part of their churchs mass celebration. B ut congregants will have to learn a new exchange after the first significant changes to the Catholic Liturgy in 40 years took affect last Sunday. The new words are: P eace be with you. And with your spirit. Only the English language liturgy is being changed. There is a change in the translation of the liturgy, said Father Phill Egitto of O ur Lady of Lourdes C atholic Church in Daytona Beach. Thats an important point to make. The liturgy is the same, but theres a change in the translation (from Latin). The changes are primarily related to dropping translational dynamic equivalents from Latin to English in favor of more literal conversions, church officials said. O ur Lady of Lourdes got a jump on using the new liturgy. W e ve been using and practicing the new Mass for the last two, three months, said Adam B lotzer, assistant music director. I think its a good idea why they changed it. P ersonally, I prefer the old text we were using. It had a more poetic flow. Mr. Blotzer 28, is a lifelong Catholic. Although he preferred the flow of the previous version, he likes how the new translation of the Mass gets him closer to the Latin, the language of C atholicism, and to personal responsibility. In sections of the Mass related to acknowledging fault, individual pronouns have r eplaced collective pronouns. I t s not quite as poetic, but it is more accurate, he said. Theyre also trying to have you understand that y ou are taking ownership for your faults. V olusia County Chair Fr ank Bruno is a Eucharistic minister at the Church of the Epiphany in Port Orange. Hes allowed to distribute Communion at M ass. The 65-year-old said he likes the new translation of the Mass, and that it strengthens acknowledgment of mistakes. I believe it makes the M ass stronger for the individual that has a personal r elationship with God, Mr. Br uno said. F ather Egitto said strengthening acceptance of personal faults is an important part of the new M ass. W e live in a culture today that doesnt like to take responsibility and likes to blame everyone else, he said. We dont like to take personal r esponsibility in our culture, and our liturgy r eminds us to take personal responsibility. In a video presentation about the new Missal, the Ve ry Re v. B ob Webster, Dir ector of the Diocese of Orlando Office of Liturgy, explained that the Roman C atholic Church updates liturgical books about every 40 years, because languages and their uses evolve. A large portion of the Catholic service, called the Mass, involve priests and assemblies speaking liturgical language back and forth. A bout 65 percent of the peoples responses have changed, Rev. Webster said about the new English M ass. About 97 percent of the priests parts have changed. Virtually the only things that have remained almost intact are the introductory rites and the concluding rites. Ma ry H erlehy, a lector at O ur Lady Star of the Sea Church in New Smyrna, said while the changes arent that major, congregants will have to pay more attention in church. They dont seem radically different, she said. As far as Im concerned the big difference is youre going to have to actually r ead in church and not (recite) from memory. No sleeping in church now. Rick Shaw is director of music and liturgy at Our Lady Star of the Sea C atholic Church in New S myrna Beach. He, too, said the changes to the English Mass are getting out some of the lethargic liturgics. I do think its a positive change, he said. Its an opportunity not to take everything we say and pray for granted. To think about what were saying and what it means. F ather Egitto said the new Missal and its Mass give active Catholics an unusually good opportunity to reach out to those less active in, have departed from, or have never considered Roman Catholicism. I t s a great opportunity for the Catholic Church to evangelize, he said. There are a lot of C atholics out there yearning for faith. Sometimes theyve gone to other religions that are more entertaining, but less satisfying. He added, Our liturgy is the oldest of all Christianity. It goes back to the first and second centuries.

leaves because of a Facebook post. Lynn Fraser, a policedepartment employee, posted disparaging remarks about the Occupy Asheville group. Melissa Williams, the citys social media specialist, r esponded LMAO, which is laughing my (expletive) off. C ouncilman Wagner has nearly 4,600 Facebook friends. Council member Andy Kelly has just more than 1,000, and a separate Facebook page promoting his bid for Supervisor of Elections. So far, 23 have liked that page. C ouncilor Pat Northey has just under 670 Facebook friends, while Carl Persis of Ormond Beach has 45. Council member Joie Alexander of N ew Smyrna Beach doesnt have a Facebook account, and, she said, doesnt want one because she has heard of public officials getting in trouble with them. I realized that as a public official, (a Facebook page) could be a problem, she said. S he did, however, have a page promoting her last bid for the county council seat. It s still on Facebook. Da ve Byron, director of V olusia County Community Ser vices, said Facebook pages can be a problem for public officials governed by F loridas public-records r ules, known as Sunshine Laws. Y ouve got a Facebook page with public documents and private documents on it, he said. It makes it difficult for a person whose public life blends with their priv ate life. Mr. Wagner, 34, joined F acebook about four years ago, before his election to the council. He said the majority of his Facebook posts are personal, although some are for promoting county activities, such as Ocean Center events. He s also used Facebook to keep constituents informed about upcoming council discussions, and to answer their questions. S ometimes I put, heres whats going on, heres what we r e working on, he said. B ut, I dont just use it for politics. He said that earlier this y ear when the council approved a large beach study, someone posted questions about it on his Facebook wall. O thers chimed in with additional questions. I t had 25 responses, Mr. W agner said. In addition to answering questions, he included web links to county pages with additional information. There are many people who got involved in this conversation and I think thats a good thing, Mr. Wagner said. I t engages people in conversation with the government they might not otherwise have. Mr. Wagner copies Facebook conversations with constituents to county r ecords. He said that being in var ious Facebook communities helps him understand constituent concerns, too. O ne of the groups I have on my page is a large group of surfers, and sometimes things that come up involve the beach, he said. V olusia County doesnt have a Facebook page. Mr. Byr on said there are many r easons for this, but most important are those publicr ecords rules. Most government communication must be archived in some manner so it is open to public r equests and review. I t is difficult to archive F acebook communication, he said. Every communication we receive is a public r ecord. We dont want to fall out of compliance with not being able to produce Facebook messages and Twitter messages. The county isnt tech shy, Mr. Byron said. Just socialmedia cautious. To get a feel for it, three county entities have started F acebook pages, Mr. Byron said. W e have not been aggressive in (social media), Mr. Byr on said. Were slowly moving in that direction. What weve decided to do is start with the (Daytona B each International) Airport, O cean Center and library system to gain some experience. B ehind much of the caution, too, is the power of social media to turn a whisper into a trumpet blast. The potential damage that can be caused by a rogue employee, or one who makes a mistake, Mr. Byron said. B ecause of the viral nature of Facebook, that can be picked up and 10 seconds later can be across the world. An inadvertent or rogue comment could cost who knows how much taxpayer money. Mr. Persis said, like Mr. Br uno, hes started a Facebook page because of increasing pressure. However, working for the Volusia C ounty Schools has given him respect for how easily a public employee, or official, can post themselves into problems. I v e seen a number of employees get in trouble with what they post on Facebook, he said. I just thought, Im not going to go there. Now, as Im winding down (my education career), people are telling me some of the political sense Facebook makes. P eople are saying, Carl, yo u ve got to be on Facebook. Mr. Bruno said that hell likely expand his use of Facebook to connect with constituents, especially if he wins his bid for the District 7 Florida Senate seat. Any enhanced communication is positive, he said. B ut, Im concerned that anyone can put anything unfiltered on Facebook. Ms. Alexander said shell never have a Facebook page or be on another social-networking site. I n my role as a county councilperson, there are other means for constituents to connect with me, she said. We connected with constituents before its introduction and its not the be all.

nationally. W e bolstered each other up when we got down on ourselves. Mr. Weydahl said, pushed each other to finish whatever we were working on its easy to quit when you hit a snag. B oth artists love of color, line, design, and a good story are reflected in their works. O ur styles are different, Mr. Weydahl said, but we both like to tell stories and let the viewer pick up the visual clues and finish the story however they please. Ms. Barringer used the human form as a metaphor for family, home and spirituality. Mr. Weydahl has a deep affection for abstract expressionism, but he too uses the human form to explore his r oots in the Dakota series. Ms. Barringer also had a close connection to the area: the site on which the Peabody A uditorium was built in 1949 is the location of Ms. Barr ingers childhood home in the 1940s. And, while Mr. Weydahl lives in Yalaha in Lake C ounty, the Peabody is located one block South of Earl Str eet, so theres another connection. Mr. Weydahl said he is, of course, sad that Ms. Barringer will not be here to share the celebration of their combined exhibit, but he hopes all of her friends and fans will come out and pay tribute to her. M y friend has left this plane, but I know she will always be my muse, inspiring me in my painting and laughing at my seriousness, he said. Im blessed to have had her in my life. The opening reception for C onnections will be held from 6 to 8 p.m., Friday, Dec. 2, at the Rose Room Gallery, 600 Auditorium Blvd., Daytona Beach.

Ev en though some was cut when it was purchased, it probably has sealed up with sap. U se lukewarm water for the first time to which you have added one aspirin for a tree up to 7 foot and 2 for a larger tree. Add cold water once or twice a day thereafter. If the water is gone the trunk will seal and the tree will die. Id like to share with you how I handled the I wants that go on and on with children at Christmas. I explained that many children throughout the world didnt have anything so moms and dads who could afford it sent Santa money for toys their children wanted so then S anta could give presents to the poor children who had nothing. Now you can negotiate, choices can be made and there will be no disappointments since they know how much money you can afford to send Santa. M akes sense, doesnt it? C ommon sense tells us that Santa doesnt have time to set up a tree and he certainly doesnt have time to wrap gifts especially in the same paper your kids saw you buy! In my family we celebrate both Christmas Eve and Christmas day. Of course we do, were Italian! How else can we become martyrs? G ifts are exchanged on Christmas Eve both to family members and the kids. Presents to be exchanged are wrapped and placed under the tree. Since S anta hasnt come yet nobody knows what he will bring. Try my way, it worked for us through four kids and they kept the faith longer. By the way, (God forgive me), when my kids said their friends parents told them otherwise, I told my kids they (the parents) we re liars. Now that I have confessed my sin lets get to the r ecipes. This week well cover some delicious cookie r ecipes. You can mix up most of the batters now, freeze them and when baking time is here, how easy will your life be? Be aware that when I r ecommend Smart Balance butter substitute, which works great in place of butter or margarine Im not talking LIGHT; it is too soft and will not work. Enjoy, see you next week!

MON DA Y, Dec. 5Yuletide Feast: Join the Lords & Ladies of the Royal Court for an evening of F riday, December 2, 2011 Hometown News B8Po rt Orange/Ponce Inlet So. Daytona/Daytona Beach Shores In my lifetime I have been fortunate enough to discover perhaps five phenomenal fishing spots. One of them was Strickland Cr eek in Ormond Beach. B eginning in the mid-1970s I would drift that stream with live shrimp and catch a consistent mixed bag of reds, snook, black drum and sheepshead. Almost always a couple of the redfish would be over 24 inches. On an average day you could land upwards of 30 fish that you would be proud to take home if you were so inclined. These days, Strickland Cr eek fish are scarce and I seldom fish there. I am not sure if the decline is due to poor water quality or overfishing, but that stream does see lots of anglers. Another thing that I always liked about Strickland Creek is that it is very wind blocked. W ith that in mind, I headed there recently when 15 mph winds were whipping the palms at my house on the Nor th Peninsula. Each year when the weather cools, I begin to think about the black drum of Strickland. As I dropped my skiff in at the natural ramp of Sanchez Park the sun was just peaking up. The sky was mostly clear and I knew that the barometer was going to be higher than I had hoped. My perfect deep water drum days have always been nasty, cold, rainy, gray days with the lowest pressure. Through the years, I have nailed the drum on those kinds of days and had to endure very little competition from less hardy fishermen. Dr um fishing in the creek r emained strong until about five years ago but since then I have had little luck. On this day I had brought along a pound and a half of dead shrimp for bait. When y ou fish Strickland with shrimp you had best have plenty of bait for the bait snatchers there are plentiful and hungry. I drifted all morning paying special attention to all of my old drum holes without any luck at all. Around 9 a.m. I did hook a nice one of three to four pounds but the hook pulled free before I could get it to the net. Other than that my only entertainment was small mangrove snappers and sailors choice. S till, I was happy, for it is a beautiful waterway and just as expected the wind could not penetrate the tall trees along the bank. At 11 a.m. I was over an old drum hole that had produced hundreds ov er the years and, sure enough, my light seven-foot r od bent double. Finally, I thought. The water in that spot is more than 12 feet deep and it was a spirited fight. As I cranked the fish up from its lair the first thing I saw was r ed bright fluorescent red. The fish was trailing one of those big oval bobbers of the type that has the steel rod through its center. Soon I could tell that my drum was actually a 20-inch redfish. That is a decent size fish, but the fight far exceeded the reds size. I soon saw that the r eason for that was that my 4/0 circle hook had managed to turn itself completely through the fishs tail back near the spot. I was pulling the fish up tail first with a bobber attached. Once I had it in the boat I could see that it had swallowed someone elses 4/0 hook and it was lodged deep in its throat. I figured by the looks of the hook and the fish that it had probably happened the previous day. That was one unlucky fish to fall for a big hook on two consecutive days. It would be my only take-home catch for the day. The old creek is only a shadow of its former self but there is still some life left in her if you know how to fish it. If you would like to learn Str ickland Creek a good place to start would to be to call either Paul Messick or Kent Gi bbens. Those two guides know that water as well as anyone. Look for them both on the Internet. Hopefully, y ou will catch a fish that has y et to be caught.

Christmas Eve, it was a traditional I talian seafood meal and the opening of gifts. Christmas morning, it was gifts from Santa (until us kids were old and jaded enough to know better, and even then, my dad would sometimes slip an unwrapped gift under the tree for old times sake). Then, around 2 or 3 p.m. on Christmas afternoon, a giant meal of lasagna and prime rib (it was just lasagna for years, but my three brothers eventually voiced concern that it just wasnt a holiday without a big honkin piece of meat on the table). After some belt loosening and quick cat naps on the sofa, the real event my favorite part of Christmas began. The Loiacono family Christmas open house. F olks we hadnt seen since the previous Dec. 25 and those we had seen just the week before would come by throughout the day, some staying for hours, some just a few minutes. Davey was always the first, bearing his latest girlfriend and a bottle of some fancy whiskey for my dad. Then, Johnny G., as we called him, a burly and bearded old friend of ours who was usually bearing not much more than a sparkling personality and appetite for leftovers. Wine and beer flowed, food was brought back out and inevitably, the evening ended with some sort of card game that my dad always seemed to win. As us kids got older, it was more our friends who were visiting, but my parents were just as engaged and friendly as ever. Seriously, my dad could be friends with a 14-year-old as easily as with his old Army buddies. To him, people were people and friends were friends, and all should be treated with love and respect and lasagna. My parents taught me a lot about the importance of family and friends, especially around the holidays. It doesnt take gifts or fancy parties to bring people together, just a loving spirit and welcoming home.

4December 2011FOREVER YOUNG VO LUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS This time of year,media images abound depicting extended families happily gathered around festive holiday meals and glowing fireplaces decked with decorations.But for many Baby Boomers,the r eality is that Grandma and Grandpa have retired elsewhere,their grown children are bound to jobs in different states,and in this economy,not everyone can afford to travel. Ho we ve r, its worth it for families to make an effort to connect during the holiday season. Research shows that people report more happiness as it relates to holidays and traditions when theyre with their family,said Dr. Br igid Noonan,associate professor and chair of the Department of C ounselor Education at Stetson University. It s not the turkey or tinsel but the maintaining of family traditionsThe gift of familyThe holidays are seen as a time to gather family and honor tradition.

6December 2011FOREVER YOUNG VO LUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS W hen parents age, we must let some holiday traditions go During the holidays one of the more upsetting aspects of aging, for some, is the disruption of time-honored traditions that make up the flavor and dynamic of the family unit. We tend to place so much pressure on ourselves at this time of y ear that we forget what is important, putting too much emphasis on keeping the memories of past celebrations current without allowing ourselves to be flexible. Relieving the pressure we place on ourselves to have the perfect seasonal celebration might enable us to enjoy the moment and accept the changes that have occurred over recent y ears. O ur familys past Thanksgiving and Christmas feasts were always held at our parents home, which, for most of those years, was big enough to handle a family that grew yearly with the addition of spouses and significant others. When grandchildren started having their own children, the numbers r apidly multiplied. After the inevitable downsizing move to a smaller home, we still tried to squeeze everyone into our parents place, wanting to preserve the ritual but ended up sacrificing comfort. Last Thanksgiving was the first gathering at a different location, which wasnt too terribly traumatic and proved to be a seamless moveable feast. Pro vided those family recipes remained on the menu and everyone showed up, we r ealized it did not matter where the goodies were served. Christmas, however, always involved a lavish brunch in the morning followed by the hours-long exchanging of gifts. M om always put on quite a spread, arising before dawn to make special r ecipes requiring last minute preparations. Obviously, it has become more difficult for her to take on these tasks and dad, who used to assist with duties outside the kitchen, forgets what all the hoopla is about and just watches in confusion. Last year my husband and I stayed over on Christmas Eve so we could help out in the early morning hours of stuffing the pastries, baking the cheese cloud and setting a festive table, among other things. Working alongside mom, cooking dishes from her faded r ecipes, was bittersweet as I knew this was the first step in her handing over the gauntlet of our familys cherished tradition. We left out one or two offerings to ease the stress and, you know what? Nobody even noticed. This just let it go attitude works in other aspects of the season, also. I nstead of their usual trip to purchase a r eal tree, a one-step, pop-up, pre-lit version was ordered online. It may not have looked as fancy in the daylight hours, but once night fell and the lights we re turned on, it was just as festive as every other year, with a fraction of the work. And is there a law which says every single one of moms dozens of S anta figurines has to be unwrapped and set out this year? Perhaps she could display half of them this holiday, and the other half next. Ev en though we know that the giftgiving aspect of the Holidays is for the delight of children, as adults we might still mourn the end of an era that our parents are no longer capable of providing. We do not want to give up that last memory of joy upon opening a gift with just the right outfit or other surprise in a beautifully wrapped package that only a mother can produce. Mom always went a little crazy with the holiday shopping and produced mountains of wrapped presents LIFE IN THE MI DDLESUSAN YOUNG See TRADITIONS, Page 18 Emergency Alert System Kitchens/Large Closets Private Screened Patio Wellness Center Housekeeping Services Barber & Beauty Shops Scheduled Transportation Chef Prepared Meals Heated PoolAssisted Living #5115Luxury 1 & 2 Bedroom Apartments 386.756.3480www.countrysidelakesalf.com941 Village Trail Port OrangeDaily Tours Lunch Included Family Owned Specializing in Homemade Italian Food, Steaks Nightly Specials683304 Book Your Holiday Parties Now!

"One loyal friend is worth ten thousand relatives." Euripides,Greek playwrite The Ormond Senior Center is always filled with people taking part in the several activities offered there. Bingo, dancing, cards, painting many different interests can be satisfied. But really, everyones there for the same reason, Center Director T eddy Blauvelt said. To make friends. W hile our center is very activity-oriented, Mr. Blauvelt said, Its really all about the connection. To come and visit with their friends and make new friends. It s so important, Mr. Blauvelt said, that the center started a friendship group. It meets every Thursday at 11:30 a.m. Attendees just talk, tell stories and make plans for outings. It is the centers most popular group, something that does not surprise Mr. B lauvelt. There was a woman, she had just moved here from South F lorida and she didnt know anyone wasnt a card player or anything, he said. S he was kind of despondent. I mentioned the friendship group to her. She came the first time, hesitantly, but then just fell in love with it. Now, she seems much happier. S he is the first one to show up every week usually with baked goods! An increased level of happiness in an older person who has made new friends doesnt surprise experts either. The positive relationship between friendship activity and psychological well-being has been clearly established, especially for those who either live far away from their family or do not have any relatives left. (Friendships are) critical throughout life, said Dr. Richard Tucker, U niversity of Central F lorida professor emeritus of psychology. B ut they become more critical when y ou get to a certain age and a point where y ou may have lost a spouse and are alone. And the importance of having connections grows exponentially this7December 2011FOREVER YOUNG VO LUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS The gift of friendsNot everyone has a big family around on the holidays.

11December 2011FOREVER YOUNG VO LUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS A Christmas pig roast and a tree on the hill For me Christmas has always been a time to enjoy family and lots of good food. As I look back over the years I must say I have fond memories of each and every one. B ut a few standout. One that I treasure happened in the middle 1980s when my y ounger sister Linda, her husband and two sons moved west of DeLand to a little spot called Paisley. If you are not familiar, it is a very small rur al outpost about five miles w est of the St. Johns River that is completely surrounded by the huge Ocala National Forest. Their new home was situated on a very large and hilly lot. At that time, Linda and I had lots of extended family living around Central Florida and we decided to try and get them all together for a holiday pig roast. As roast master it was my job to go up to Pierson to buy a fully dressed hog of nearly 100 pounds. It was fun going to the country slaughterhouse to pick out our pig and spend a few moments with the man who had raised it. At my insistence it was to be the men who would do the cooking. First, I dug a long shallow pit and covered it with steel bars. Some of the others went into the forest and brought back truck after truck of hard wood. The night before Christmas Eve, we began by building a giant bonfire. As the wood burned down we shoveled the hot coals under the pig and readied ourselves for a long night. To do this job properly the hog must be slow cooked with lots of love and attention. The key to the whole thing would be my secret recipe barbeque sauce of which I concocted about four gallons (you can never have too much sauce). As the night began, my helpers numbered about 10 but as Lindas wellfortified homemade eggnog started to take effect, the men began to look for a spot to curl up and nap. Around midnight the cracklins (pig skin, for you city folk) reached crispy perfection and we all eagerly dipped them in my delicious sauce and ate our fill. Having regained our senses somewhat, a TV-VCR set up was brought out and we all watched one of the earliest versions of A Christmas Carol. As we hissed and booed Scrooge and cheered for Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim we poured whiskey all around, foregoing the eggnog this r ound.

14December 2011FOREVER YOUNG VO LUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS that is most important, Dr. Noonan said. F or some people that might mean going and volunteering at a homeless shelter or soup kitchen or going to a local fire department, or it may mean just getting in the car and driving around and looking at all the lights, she said. Sights and smells related to holiday traditions are also important. No matter which holidays families celebrate H anukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa it primarily has to do with being together as a family. Scott and Sue Chappuis gather family and friends at their Ormond Beach home throughout the year, but the holidays in particular are when they open their home to their large extended family, as well as friends who dont have family nearby. E verybody doesnt always come, S ue said, But whoever is available knows theyre welcome. To accommodate crowds of as many as 30, they set up tables in the screened-in patio outside and serve dinner on paper plates. W e re always very casual, Sue said. The couple smokes a large ham and Sues mom, who lives down the street, bakes a large turkey. The couple admit it can be a big effort to host the large gatherings, but they feel its important. Thats just what the holidays are for, Scott said. While hosting such large gathering might sound stressful, Sue says she enjoys doing it. I love to cook, so Im in my element, she said. With the Macys parade on television and family members in the kitchen helping to make pies, Sue said, I just cook all day and visit. The couple lessens potential stress by letting guests contribute, and in recent years theyve downsized the meal. W e ve limited the menu and we v e asked people to bring covered dishes, Scott said. Since its mostly family, we have some of the same things each year. We just assign those dishes to people. W e have a lot of fun cooking, teaching the kids to cook and watching the Macys parade, Sue said. The nice thing is that were teaching the younger group that this is what you need to do, she said. When the pies come out, theyre all excited because they helped make it. F or families who dont live in the same area, maintaining holiday traditions is more of a challenge. When travel isnt an option, far-flung family members can use other avenues of communication to touch base during the holidays, Dr. Noonan said. Whatever people can do to connect, using social media or Skype or any of those types of communications to at least try and connect, thats the piece; its the connection re lative to maintaining of traditions whatever that means to that particular family. F or some families, that connection might lead to conflict. In such cases, Dr. Noonan advises setting aside differences for a more appropriate time and place. I f you have some unresolved issues with family members, this isnt a good time to solve it. Keep y our lip zipped, she said. A lot of people dont, and they find that keeping the lip zipped would have been a better idea. Those who dont connect with others during the holidays put themselves at risk for depression, Dr Noonan said. For some people, however, reaching out is difficult.

According to the Pew Research Centers Internet and American Life Project, 65 percent of adults now use social media to keep up with friends and family, up from 60 percent a year ago. Among Baby Boomers ages 50 to 64, social networking site use grew from 20 percent to 32 percent in the last year. While seniors are testing the waters, many Baby Boomers are beginning to make a trip to the social media pool part of their daily routine, said Mary Madden, senior research specialist and co-author of the report released in August 2011. Along with social media, todays smart phones make it easier to keep in touch with generations of family members on the go, so if youre still sitting by that old wall phone in the kitchen waiting for the grandkids to call, maybe its time for an upgrade.

A lot of folks, particularly as we get older, we dont want to be a burden. O ne of the things the literature is r eally trying to stress is its important for people to get out and about. F or those who dont have a family gathering to attend, volunteering is a good way to connect with others. S enior centers, YMCAs and the V olusia County Council on Aging can be helpful resources, Dr. Noonan said. There are also online r esources such as myeldersource.org, which has a section called Be Involved that lists volunteer and employment opportunities. This publication r uns a listing of local volunteer opportunities every month. I t s also OK not to feel jolly, Dr. N oonan noted. To lessen the risk of depression, she recommended avoiding excess alcohol intake and engaging in environmentally conscious holiday activities such as avoiding overspending and overeating. What a lot of people do is they kind of go off their whatever their normal schedule is, she said. When people do it for longer than two weeks, it can become a negative pattern of behavior F or family members, particularly the elderly, who are unwilling and unable to get out and about, Dr. No onan said its important to have a phone tree, an elder care organization or family members who can check on them.

That task r equired four men to each grab a leg and make the flip. Unfortunately, by 2 a.m. there was only a quarter of that number awake me and I was becoming undependable. A couple hours later, my first cousin Randy woke up long enough to stagger over and fall onto the picnic table, dumping out the entire four gallons of prize-winning barbecue sauce. As the sun came up, we were all asleep and the pig was getting cold. Along about 10 a.m. of Christmas Eve we were able to give the pig a couple hours of concentrated attention and the part that wasnt burned seemed to be cooked pretty well. That afternoon all of the womenfolk began to show up with their delicious side dishes and desserts. That evening we all ate outdoors and most agreed that the hog had turned out OK, considering the cooks lapse in sobriety and hence, attention. No one but me seemed to mind that there was no sauce. Right at the top of the hill on Lindas property grew a Florida cedar tree over 30 feet tall. Each family had brought a strand of colored lights from their own tree and we strung them on the big cedar. When it was completely dark we plugged it in amid oohs and aahs. Later we were told it could be seen for miles. Of course, the women began to sing Christmas songs and the hungover men tried to join in as w ell as they could. It was certainly a Christmas to remember. S adly, my sister Linda, who was a true baby boomer (born in 1947), passed away in 2003. But memories like these of that crazy pig roast keep her in our hearts especially during the holidays. These days family is still so important this time of year.

B eing alone and then you overlay the holiday season, and all the emotional ties that go with it that can be very difficult. Dr Tucker, who serves on the Council on Aging of Volusia County Board of Directors, said while traditionally people think of the holidays as a time for being with family, friends are no cheap substitute. While family ties are obligatory, friendship is voluntary, he said. W ith family, there is a whole history there and while things may be wonderful, there also may be problems. So being with friends you have chosen can actually be better for you. N ot to mention that family members may be of a different generation and not have much in common with their elders. W ith friends of the same age, you may have a common history and much more in common, Dr. Tucker said. Mr. Blauvelt agreed that having r elationships with people who are peers is vital. Thats a very important factor that they have things in common, he said. In the friendship group, they are always talking about similar exper iences they really bond over that. B ut its not just emotional ties that make friendships so important for older people, Dr. Tucker said. It can be logistical. S omeone may need transportation or physical assistance, he said. Having friends they can rely on expands their physical environment. And those who are giving that assistance benefit as well. I t s clear that helping someone is good for brain wellness, Dr. Tucker said. Which is why he suggests people who are alone look for opportunities to help others by volunteering. I t s really about the social engagement, he said. So any kind of volunteer effort is beneficial. Also, going to places like the Ormond Beach Senior Center, where there are activities and people to meet is a great idea, especially around the holidays. W e definitely get more people this time of year, Mr. Blauvelt said. T here is an emotional attachment during the holidays and if they dont have it with family, they really feel theF riendsFrom page 7 Ormond Beach Senior Center 351 Andrews Street Ormond Beach (386) 672-4146 Council on Aging of Volusia County (386) 253-4700 www.coaiaa.org

PONCE INLET This week city staff began interviewing seven hopefuls to become the town's newest top cop. To wn Manager Jeaneen Clauss conducted a round of "initial interviews" with the finalists who were chosen from a field of 78 applicants. The remaining candidates for the job are Kenneth Bell, Jay Cuddy, Cheryl Degroff, Matthew Doughney, Frank Fabrizio, Roland LaCroix and Brian Lock. Ms. Clauss said an eighth finalist, K enneth Wynne, a lieutenant for the administrative services bureau of the Orange County Sheriff's Office, withdrew from the running. A new police chief will be selected following two or three interviews with each finalist and narrowing the field down further from the seven, she said.

That swelled to more than 100 after fellow county council member Josh Wagner of Port Orange teased him about social media ineptitude during a recent meeting. "I r eally haven't been paying attention to (Facebook) at all," Mr. Bruno said in a telephone interview. "Some friends said, Frank, you should be on Facebook.' I didn't even know what a wall was, to be honest." A "wall" shows a Facebook user's postings. It's also a medium for sending public messages to other Facebook users. Mr. Bruno, 65, said his wife, Mary, is posting on his F acebook page and accepting friend requests. S ocial networking sites are an increasingly integral part of everyday communications. According to Facebook, the average user has 130 online friends. About 800 million people are on the site at least once a month. It has become an important marketing tool for businesses and been embraced by many politicians as a vital tool for campaigns and beyond. B ut the rapid proliferation of social media has raised many questions about how public officials can and should use it. For example, in 2009 the state's Judicial E thics Advisory Committee advised judges against becoming Facebook friends with lawyers who might appear before them. More r ecently, the City of Asheville, N.C., put two employees on Cities to hold tree lightings this weekendIt will start to look a lot like Christmas in some cities this weekend.

VO L USIA COUNTY J udy Conte is an unapologetic firebrand for public education. A bluntspeaking frequent critic of the Florida Legislature, she's butted heads with the Volusia T eachers Organization and voted to close schools with visible steeliness in front of angry citizens. No w, she's the new Volusia County School Board vice-chair. Ms. Conte has been on the board 19 years, and hopes to remain until at least 2016. Her seat is up for election next year. "I had thought of possibly not running again," she said. "But this is a precarious time for education and I believe so strongly in its importance. I think it's more important to people than they know." Ms. Conte, who represents the Ormond Beach area, hasn't filed with the V olusia County Department of Elections for a 2012 run, but said she has picked up the needed paperwork and will be running. In 1963, Ms. Conte graduated from Seabreeze High School. Or, as she calls it, the real Seabreeze High School." The school used to be where Daytona Lagoon is currently located. She headed to Daytona Beach Community College, now Daytona State College, and later F lorida State University. Then she returned to her S eabreeze to teach English, and give generations of students a repeated lesson in commas and patriotism. "I was there when they inserted under God' in the P ledge," she said. "I had to learn it. I don't like it, but if yo u' re going to say it, say it r ight. There's no comma before under God,' and adding a pause before it changes the meaning." Ms. Conte has been an unabashed critic of many education policies enacted by the Florida Legislature in r ecent years; she believes a deliberate dismantling of public education is happening. The move is to privatize public schools," she said. "I t' s sold to the public as a means to giving less fortunate students what they call an equal break.' But, I think the logic there is to make public schools more like priv ate schools." The Florida Legislature has shifted more funding from public schools to charter schools and other education options in recent years. F or example, in the last session, the legislature designated all of the state's Public E ducation Capital Outlay funds to charter schools. PE CO funds help schools do anything related to capital expenditures, from construction to buying new desks or computers. Volusia has nine charter schools with 11 campuses among them. Charter schools are hybrids: private schools that operate under charters granted by public school districts. Students attend charter schools for free. There were 1,916 Volusia students in charter schools during the recent 20-day count. Ms. Conte is opposed to the legislature-proposed "R eligious Freedom Amendment." The proposed 2012 ballot measure would revise the Florida Constitution to allow education vouchers to be used at religious schools. The American Civil Liberties U nion and others have filed suit to keep it off the ballot. Ms. Conte said she's skeptical that its supporters have considered how the amendment would operate with the state and federal constitutions' prohibitions against F riday, December 2, 2011 Hometown News A2Po rt Orange/Ponce Inlet So.

www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 2, 2011 A3Po rt Orange/Ponce Inlet So. Daytona/Daytona Beach ShoresIn 1890 when Henry Flagler bought the big Hotel Ormond and began to expand it from 75 rooms to 400 there was probably a lot of snickering done behind his back. The original o wners John Anderson and Joseph Pr ice could not come close to filling the rooms that already existed. The hotel was in a remote area, difficult to get to and Florida tourism was not yet on the horizon. It would be the unexpected arrival of yo ung William K. Vanderbilt Jr. in 1904 that would suddenly make Ormond B each a desirable destination for the nation's wealthy. When Willie K. set the world's speed record on the beach in his Mercedes, the hotel was filled with y oung socialites who had come to witness the event and be a part of the fun. People with last names like Bo r den, Astor, Pullman and Gould began to buy up the prime riverfront property just north of the hotel on what is now John Anderson Drive. After the huge success of the 1904 winter speed tournament, Flagler set about making his influential guests a bit more comfortable. He began by ordering the world's first facility to house and r epair r acecars to be built on hotel property. The Ormond Gar age was completed in the summer of 1904. Soon after, he began to contemplate a premier golf course to complement his growing r esort. When the land on the H alifax was sold, the property extended all the way to the Atlantic O cean. Flagler asked the owners if they would be willing to donate their useless palmetto and sandspur covered back lots for his new 18-hole course. In return he offered each a lifetime membership in the new country club. All agreed. That was a pretty shrewd bit of negotiating by anyone's standards. When all of the work was finally completed, The Hotel Ormond was the world's largest resort and a Mecca for w ell-heeled visitors trying to escape the harsh northern winters. It would r emain so until the 1940's when the fickle elite would move further south to Palm Beach. M any of those fine old riverfront homes still exist and on Dec. 11 from 1 p .m. to 5:30 p.m. the Ormond Beach H istorical Society will offer a once in a lifetime opportunity for visitors to see a select few of them inside and out on the Fifth Annual Holiday Tour of Homes. One of the most impressive is "Ro wallan," a rambling traditional Br itish style mansion built in 1913 by N ew York department store magnate Alexander Lindsay. Rowallan, named for a Scottish castle, is now owned by T ony and Stacey Steel and their two children Ben and Emma. The Steels had their eye on the home for some time when it became available in 2010, and even though they were living in S ingapore, they bought the house and made the long move to Ormond B each. Now the Steels have graciously consented to open their home for the tour. The stately old mansion originally contained 28 rooms and many of the walls are covered with hand painted murals depicting scenes of Florida landscapes and wildlife. Tastefully done in muted tones of gray and pale blue, the murals offer a nice contrast to the striking dual staircase that greets you in the foyer. In 1988, Ro wallan was added to the U.S. National Historic R egister. To see Rowallan and four other J ohn Anderson Drive homes plus The C asements (winter home of J ohn D. R ockefeller) and the Anderson Pr ice M emorial B uilding call the Historical So ciety at (386) 6777005. Tickets ($25) are limited and the tour will be conducted by shuttle bus only. If y ou enjoy history and fine architecture, this is the don't miss event of the season.

the interview process." The qualifications Ms. Clauss looked for in candidates included experience in police work, she said, giving highest consideration to those who served with the r ank of captain in a larger agency or as a police chief for a smaller agency. S he also expected candidates to have executive development training, as w ell as a Bachelor's degree or higher. The vacancy opened up following the death of Police Chief Wayne Lurcock on the morning of Sept. 26. Chief Lu r cock had three decades of law enforcement experience and served on Ponce I nlet's force since 1999. P olice department spokesman Lt. Max Binz, who is also serving as acting police chief in the wake of Chief Lurcock's death, said the eight finalists were handpicked by the town manager and other city staff members. Lt. Binz met the qualifications and was offered the job but did not wish to pursue the opportunity. "W e had gone through all the requirements, (and) I had turned down the position," he said. Ms. Clauss said the person chosen for the job will lead an accredited and well-managed department. "W e have a great little police department here," she said. "We're very fortunate we don't have a police department that has issues that need to be overcome. It 's the right job for the right person." T wo of the candidates, Mr. C uddy and Mr. Doughney, have professional ties to V olusia County. Mr. Cuddy served with the Ormond Beach Police D epartment from 1978 to 2009, beginning as a patrol officer and retiring as a division chief. Mr. Doughney served for two decades with the Daytona Beach Police Department before becoming police chief of the city of Av on Park, located in Highlands County near Lakeland, in 2008. Last year he stepped down as police chief. Mr. Bell currently serves as police chief of the town of V an Buren, Ark., where he ov ersees 42 certified police employees and a $3.6 million annual budget for his department. He has also served as a security officer for St. Edward Hospital in Fo rt S mith, Ark. and as a military police sergeant with the U.S. Army. Ms. D egroff, the only female in the running, served on the Orlando P olice D epartment from 1983 to 2003, retiring under the rank of captain. She is currently the bureau chief of administrative services for the Florida Office of Agricultural Law Enforcement. Mr. Fabrizio is a captain with the Orange County S heriff's Office, where he has worked for almost 30 years. Mr. LaCroix is currently chief of police at the University of Maine in Orono, Me., a position he's held since 2008. Prior to that, he spent nearly three decades as a commander and lieutenant for the Orange County Sheriff's Office. Mr. Lock is the police chief of the city of West Melbourne, serving as the Breva rd C ounty city's top police employee since 1990.

Trying to understand the multitude of Social Security regulations, standards and procedures can be a daunting task for any potential claimant. Although attorneys and representatives handling disability claims often give advice as to ways to maximize the chances of getting a claim approved, many times disabled individuals with solid claims are denied because of things that they should not have done, or things that they should have done but failed to do. Below are the 5 most common mistakes that I see individuals filing for Social Security Disability make which hurt or eliminate their chances of being awarded disability benefits. 1. Waiting too long to apply The quicker you apply for disability after recognizing that you will not be able to remain in the workforce, the quicker your period of eligibility for disability benefits is protected. Waiting too long to apply for benefits can r esult in the loss of your disability insured status; meaning that even if you are physically or mentally disabled, you will not qualify for benefits because you will not have enough credits to be insured. Although you may still qualify for disability under the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program, strict financial requirements have to be met for eligibility under SSI. Also, upon approval, claimants that apply for SSD are only entitled to receive back benefits not exceeding 1 year before their application date regardless of the date they are found to be disabled. (Those that qualify for SSI are only entitled to receive benefits from the date of their application) Therefore, promptly applying for disability benefits may result in receiving a larger back benefit award. 2. Not giving Social Security complete information Frequently, I see disability denials where the information used by Social Security to evaluate the claim is incomplete. First of all, make sure you disclose all of your medical providers and their contact information in your initial application. Social Security is not going to hunt downŽ this information from you if it is not provided to them in the beginning.Secondly, disclose all of your medical conditions to the Social Security Administration. Too often I see claimants that focus only on a specific condition that they believe is causing them the most problems. However, the Social Security Administration is required to consider all of your medical conditions, individually and in combination, to determine whether you are disabled. Be sure to be specific as to the symptoms you are experiencing for each condition.Finally, when it comes to your past relevant work, be detailed in the description of your physical and mental activities. 3. Focusing on medical conditions and not on limitations The magic word in the world of real estate is location.The magic word in Social Security Disability law is limitations. You have to be specific as to the physical or mental limitations that you have as a result of your disabling medical conditions. Quite frequently I see claimants who tell me that the reason why they believe they cannot work is because of their bad back, heart, depression, etc. These medical conditions are not limitations. Limitations are the individual physical and/or mental restrictions caused by the symptoms flowing from your medical conditions. In other words, in what ways are you limited in doing certain activities as a result of your medical conditions? Why are limitations so important? Because depending on the degree of your limitations the most important factor in performing and keeping employment will be eliminated: Reliability. If you are not reliable to perform a job as it is normally performed, you will not be able to keep competitive employment. So, remember to focus on your physical or mental limitations.

Launched earlier this month, a Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement campaign is now in full swing. The campaign continues through Dec. 31, with deputies taking a zero tolerance approach to violators. And the r eason is simple: seat belts save lives, but only if they're used. T wo additional Click It or Ticket campaigns have been scheduled for next year, between March 18-31, 2012 and May 5-June 3, 2012. This is a high priority for our deputies," said Volusia County S heriff Ben Johnson. "Seat belts are an absolute life-saver, and anything that we can do through enforcement to heighten awareness and increase their use will improve safety for the motoring public." D eputies, meanwhile, will also be stepping up efforts to target impaired drivers. Again, highway safety and the reduction of traffic crashes, deaths and injuries is the goal. The Sheriff's Office's traffic unit will be conducting several DUI enforcement initiatives during the holidays and through the New Year. The initiatives are scheduled for the holiday periods as well as va r ious weekends, at locations throughout the county.

R ecently the City of South Daytona published a legal notice to conduct a public hearing on Dec. 13, for the purpose of issuing up to $30 million worth of bonds to finance the purchase of the FPL distribution facilities in South Daytona. One must question whether a city of this size should really indebt the residents for this tremendous amount of money over the next 35 years, especially without a vote of the citizens. Furthermore, can South Daytona realistically guarantee the ability to supply power and services at a rate equal to, or lower than, FPL or any other utility in Florida during this period of time, as they claim?In response to: People on welfare should be drug tested'The drug testing for welfare is a great idea, and I agree with the writer. The new people applying are not the problem, it's the people who have been on welfare for years and know the system. Those peoplealready know that welfare workers don't check up or visit their homes to see if they r eally are using tax dollars for the children or for theirdrugs use and their own clothes, while thekids go without. That is where the drug testing should be done.Protesters need to have a message that makes sensePe r haps those who occupied Wall Street and locally, a similar imitation, should have watched the 85th Macy's Day Thanksgiving Parade. Although the protestors think the government creates jobs, it does not. Business people create jobs. A partial list of the evil, greedy corporations who made possible the popular Macy's parade: Macy's itself, along with McDonald's, Delta Airlines, Planters Peanuts, Office Max, Energizer Batteries, Sony, Hess, Hilton Hotels, U niversal Studios, Disney, Kool Aid, Pillsbury Inc. and Morton's Salt.These don't include the corporations who sponsored the three-hour parade enjoyed by millions of Americans. Perhaps someday people who wish to protest something, get it straight first and have a message that makes sense. Then people will listen with respect and join in the chorus. we welcome your O PINIONWe prefer opinions on local issues. L etters must include a phone number and home address for verification.

Ridgewood Ave., No. 22 South Daytona, FL 32119 LettersWe need to get back to the real meaning of ChristmasChristmas is upon us once more and it's truly a shame to see the TV commercials along with mailboxes full of ads. Ev en the parents are dragging the children out all hours of the day and night into the crowded stores, where they need not be, to buy something that is on the store shelf all year long. This is just commercialism for the money hungry CEO's, who work their employees these ridiculous hours. That is not what Christmas is about; this is greed and trying to get more than your neighbor. All this commercialism is an embarrassment. I bet a person could not find 10 children who know the real meaning of Christmas, without mentioning getting toys.Parents teach the children that they have to get a lot of presents and everything they want for Christmas, but before the day is over, these children are back watching TV or playing on the computer. What happen to Christmas, the faith, love, sharing and enjoyment of family and friends, most of all the compassion for the true meaning of the holiday? We need to bring that back for our society to survive, for if we do not have compassion, love and faith we have nothing. S heila Dillon Po rt Or angeWhy are there so many commercials when we pay for TV?R emember when you could buy a TV, put an antenna on the roof and watch TV? Sure, they had commercials, but that's what paid for the program and maybe you only had a handful of channels but there was always something to watch. The good part was that there was no monthly bill, and the commercials were only a minute or two, just enough time to get a snack from the kitchen. No w, we must pay for watching TV, so why do we have more commercials than ever? Every 10 minutes we have 12 or more commercials. Now, you cannot only get a snack, but you can take a shower and eat dinner without missing your show. Is it just me or does anyone else realize that they are showing us 60 to 80 commercials an hour? Ambulance chasing lawyers, noisy car commercials and more cable commercials than you can shake a stick at. We are paying for this. And we have over a hundred channels to choose from. I can only find three that I like. Most people that I spoke to only watch two to four channels. The bad thing is that if I watch my channels in the afternoon, the same shows are on again in the evening. If you want to watch a movie, now you pay again. I would really like to know if there is a government agency that has some control over this. The cable companies are a monopoly and they can charge whatever they want and shove commercials down your throat.

www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 2, 2011 A7Po rt Orange/Ponce Inlet So. Daytona/Daytona Beach ShoresCatholic Church makes changes to English Mass"Peace be with you." "A nd also with you." That exchange is recognized by Catholics around the world as part of their church's mass celebration. B ut congregants will have to learn a new exchange after the first significant changes to the Catholic Liturgy in 40 years took affect last Sunday. The new words are: "P eace be with you." And with your spirit." Only the English language liturgy is being changed. There is a change in the translation of the liturgy," said Father Phill Egitto of O ur Lady of Lourdes C atholic Church in Daytona Beach. "That's an important point to make. The liturgy is the same, but there's a change in the translation (from Latin)." The changes are primarily related to dropping translational dynamic equivalents from Latin to English in favor of more literal conversions, church officials said. O ur Lady of Lourdes got a jump on using the new liturgy. "W e' ve been using and practicing the new Mass for the last two, three months," said Adam B lotzer, assistant music director. "I think it's a good idea why they changed it. P ersonally, I prefer the old text we were using. It had a more poetic flow." Mr. Blotzer 28, is a lifelong Catholic. Although he preferred the flow of the previous version, he likes how the new translation of the Mass gets him closer to the Latin, the language of C atholicism, and to personal responsibility. In sections of the Mass related to acknowledging fault, individual pronouns have r eplaced collective pronouns. "I t' s not quite as poetic, but it is more accurate," he said. "They're also trying to have you understand that y ou are taking ownership for your faults." V olusia County Chair Fr ank Bruno is a Eucharistic minister at the Church of the Epiphany in Port Orange. He's allowed to distribute Communion at M ass. The 65-year-old said he likes the new translation of the Mass, and that it strengthens acknowledgment of mistakes. "I believe it makes the M ass stronger for the individual that has a personal r elationship with God," Mr. Br uno said. F ather Egitto said strengthening acceptance of personal faults is an important part of the new M ass. "W e live in a culture today that doesn't like to take responsibility and likes to blame everyone else," he said. "We don't like to take personal r esponsibility in our culture, and our liturgy r eminds us to take personal responsibility." In a video presentation about the new Missal, the Ve ry Re v. B ob Webster, Di r ector of the Diocese of Orlando Office of Liturgy, explained that the Roman C atholic Church updates liturgical books about every 40 years, because languages and their uses evolve. A large portion of the Catholic service, called the Mass, involve priests and assemblies speaking liturgical language back and forth. "A bout 65 percent of the people's responses have changed," Rev. Webster said about the new English M ass. "About 97 percent of the priests' parts have changed. Virtually the only things that have remained almost intact are the introductory rites and the concluding rites." Ma ry H erlehy, a lector at O ur Lady Star of the Sea Church in New Smyrna, said while the changes aren't that major, congregants will have to pay more attention in church. They don't seem radically different," she said. As far as I'm concerned the big difference is you're going to have to actually r ead in church and not (recite) from memory. No sleeping in church now." Rick Shaw is director of music and liturgy at Our Lady Star of the Sea C atholic Church in New S myrna Beach. He, too, said the changes to the English Mass are getting out some of the lethargic liturgics. "I do think it's a positive change," he said. "It's an opportunity not to take everything we say and pray for granted. To think about what we're saying and what it means." F ather Egitto said the new Missal and its Mass give active Catholics an unusually good opportunity to reach out to those less active in, have departed from, or have never considered Roman Catholicism. "I t' s a great opportunity for the Catholic Church to evangelize," he said. There are a lot of C atholics out there yearning for faith. Sometimes they've gone to other religions that are more entertaining, but less satisfying." He added, "Our liturgy is the oldest of all Christianity. It goes back to the first and second centuries."

leaves because of a Facebook post. Lynn Fraser, a policedepartment employee, posted disparaging remarks about the Occupy Asheville group. Melissa Williams, the city's social media specialist, r esponded "LMAO," which is "laughing my (expletive) off." C ouncilman Wagner has nearly 4,600 Facebook friends. Council member Andy Kelly has just more than 1,000, and a separate Facebook page promoting his bid for Supervisor of Elections. So far, 23 have "liked" that page. C ouncilor Pat Northey has just under 670 Facebook friends, while Carl Persis of Ormond Beach has 45. Council member Joie Alexander of N ew Smyrna Beach doesn't have a Facebook account, and, she said, doesn't want one because she has heard of public officials getting in trouble with them. "I r ealized that as a public official, (a Facebook page) could be a problem," she said. S he did, however, have a page promoting her last bid for the county council seat. It 's still on Facebook. Da ve Byron, director of V olusia County Community Se r vices, said Facebook pages can be a problem for public officials governed by F lorida's public-records r ules, known as Sunshine Laws. "Y ou've got a Facebook page with public documents and private documents on it," he said. "It makes it difficult for a person whose public life blends with their priv ate life." Mr. Wagner, 34, joined F acebook about four years ago, before his election to the council. He said the majority of his Facebook posts are personal, although some are for promoting county activities, such as Ocean Center events. He 's also used Facebook to keep constituents informed about upcoming council discussions, and to answer their questions. "S ometimes I put, here's what's going on, here's what we 'r e working on,'" he said. "B ut, I don't just use it for politics." He said that earlier this y ear when the council approved a large beach study, someone posted questions about it on his Facebook wall. O thers chimed in with additional questions. "I t had 25 responses," Mr. W agner said. In addition to answering questions, he included web links to county pages with additional information. There are many people who got involved in this conversation and I think that's a good thing," Mr. Wagner said. "I t engages people in conversation with the government they might not otherwise have." Mr. Wagner copies Facebook conversations with constituents to county r ecords. He said that being in va r ious Facebook communities helps him understand constituent concerns, too. "O ne of the groups I have on my page is a large group of surfers, and sometimes things that come up involve the beach," he said. V olusia County doesn't have a Facebook page. Mr. By r on said there are many r easons for this, but most important are those publicr ecords rules. Most government communication must be archived in some manner so it is open to public r equests and review. "I t is difficult to archive F acebook communication," he said. "Every communication we receive is a public r ecord. We don't want to fall out of compliance with not being able to produce Facebook messages and Twitter messages." The county isn't tech shy, Mr. Byron said. Just socialmedia cautious. To get a feel for it, three county entities have started F acebook pages, Mr. Byron said. "W e have not been aggressive in (social media)," Mr. By r on said. "We're slowly moving in that direction. What we've decided to do is start with the (Daytona B each International) Airport, O cean Center and library system to gain some experience." B ehind much of the caution, too, is the power of social media to turn a whisper into a trumpet blast. The potential damage that can be caused by a rogue employee, or one who makes a mistake," Mr. Byron said. "B ecause of the viral nature of Facebook, that can be picked up and 10 seconds later can be across the world. An inadvertent or rogue comment could cost who knows how much taxpayer money." Mr. Persis said, like Mr. Br uno, he's started a Facebook page because of increasing pressure. However, working for the Volusia C ounty Schools has given him respect for how easily a public employee, or official, can post themselves into problems. "I 'v e seen a number of employees get in trouble with what they post on Facebook," he said. "I just thought, I'm not going to go there. Now, as I'm winding down (my education career), people are telling me some of the political sense Facebook makes. P eople are saying, Carl, yo u' ve got to be on Facebook.'" Mr. Bruno said that he'll likely expand his use of Facebook to connect with constituents, especially if he wins his bid for the District 7 Florida Senate seat. Any enhanced communication is positive," he said. "B ut, I'm concerned that anyone can put anything unfiltered on Facebook." Ms. Alexander said she'll never have a Facebook page or be on another social-networking site. "I n my role as a county councilperson, there are other means for constituents to connect with me," she said. "We connected with constituents before its introduction and it's not the be all."

Spend any time surfing the Web and you are bound to find stories that are just too bizarre to be true. He re 's a sampling, edited for length. And remember, just because it's online doesn't mean it's true! Fr om wtae.com : Wild turkey crashes into restaurant on Thanksgiving A wild turkey apparently flew into an Eat'n Park r estaurant on of all days Thanksgiving. The 15-pound turkey was found among a pile of shattered glass. N obody was inside the r estaurant, which was closed for the holiday.

nationally. "W e bolstered each other up when we got down on ourselves." Mr. Weydahl said, pushed each other to finish whatever we were working on it's easy to quit when you hit a snag." B oth artists' love of color, line, design, and a good story are reflected in their works. "O ur styles are different," Mr. Weydahl said, but we both like to tell stories and let the viewer pick up the visual clues and finish the story however they please." Ms. Barringer used the human form as a metaphor for family, home and spirituality. Mr. Weydahl has a deep affection for abstract expressionism, but he too uses the human form to explore his r oots in the "Dakota series." Ms. Barringer also had a close connection to the area: the site on which the Peabody A uditorium was built in 1949 is the location of Ms. Barr inger's childhood home in the 1940s. And, while Mr. Weydahl lives in Yalaha in Lake C ounty, the Peabody is located one block South of "Earl" St r eet, so there's another connection. Mr. Weydahl said he is, of course, sad that Ms. Barringer will not be here to share the celebration of their combined exhibit, but he hopes all of her friends and fans will come out and pay tribute to her. "M y friend has left this plane, but I know she will always be my muse, inspiring me in my painting and laughing at my seriousness," he said. "I'm blessed to have had her in my life." The opening reception for "C onnections" will be held from 6 to 8 p.m., Friday, Dec. 2, at the Rose Room Gallery, 600 Auditorium Blvd., Daytona Beach. The exhibit is free and open to the public; guests should enter through the patio gates on Wild Olive Av enue. There is free parking behind the Peabody and on W ild Olive for the evening.

It' s tree time again! To keep your tree fresh cut some off the bottom before putting it in a stand. Ev en though some was cut when it was purchased, it probably has sealed up with sap. U se lukewarm water for the first time to which you have added one aspirin for a tree up to 7 foot and 2 for a larger tree. Add cold water once or twice a day thereafter. If the water is gone the trunk will seal and the tree will die. I'd like to share with you how I handled the "I wants" that go on and on with children at Christmas. I explained that many children throughout the world didn't have anything so moms and dads who could afford it sent Santa money for toys their children wanted so then S anta could give presents to the poor children who had nothing. Now you can negotiate, choices can be made and there will be no disappointments since they know how much money you can afford to send Santa. M akes sense, doesn't it? C ommon sense tells us that Santa doesn't have time to set up a tree and he certainly doesn't have time to wrap gifts especially in the same paper your kids saw you buy! In my family we celebrate both Christmas Eve and Christmas day. Of course we do, we're Italian! How else can we become martyrs? G ifts are exchanged on Christmas Eve both to family members and the kids. Presents to be exchanged are wrapped and placed under the tree. Since S anta hasn't come yet nobody" knows what he will bring. Try my way, it worked for us through four kids and they kept the faith longer. By the way, (God forgive me), when my kids said their friends' parents told them otherwise, I told my kids they (the parents) we re liars. No w that I have confessed my sin let's get to the r ecipes. This week we'll cover some delicious cookie r ecipes. You can mix up most of the batters now, freeze them and when baking time is here, how easy will your life be? Be aware that when I r ecommend Smart Balance butter substitute, which works great in place of butter or margarine I'm not talking LIGHT; it is too soft and will not work. Enjoy, see you next week! R emember, preheat the ov en for 20 minutes!U U L L TI TI MA MA TE TE C C H H O O C C O O L L A A TE C TE C H H I I P P C C O O O O KI KI E EThis is a superb recipe and slightly different from the original. 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons unsifted bleached allpurpose flour 1/2-teaspoon each of salt and baking soda 1-1/2 sticks unsalted butter (no substitutes), melted and cooled 'til warm (very important) 1 cup brown sugar, 1/2 light and 1/2 dark, firmly packed 1/2-cup granulated sugar 1 large egg plus 1 yolk 2 teaspoons vanilla 1-2 cups chocolate chips 1/2-cup chopped pecans or walnuts H eat oven to 325-degrees.

MON DA Y, Dec. 5Yuletide Feast: Join the Lords & Ladies of the Royal Court for an evening of F riday, December 2, 2011 Hometown News B8Po rt Orange/Ponce Inlet So. Daytona/Daytona Beach Shores In my lifetime I have been fortunate enough to discover perhaps five phenomenal fishing spots. One of them was Strickland Cr eek in Ormond Beach. B eginning in the mid-1970's I would drift that stream with live shrimp and catch a consistent mixed bag of reds, snook, black drum and sheepshead. Almost always a couple of the redfish would be over 24 inches. On an average day you could land upwards of 30 fish that you would be proud to take home if you were so inclined. These days, Strickland Cr eek fish are scarce and I seldom fish there. I am not sure if the decline is due to poor water quality or overfishing, but that stream does see lots of anglers. Another thing that I always liked about Strickland Creek is that it is very wind blocked. W ith that in mind, I headed there recently when 15 mph winds were whipping the palms at my house on the No r th Peninsula. Each year when the weather cools, I begin to think about the black drum of Strickland. As I dropped my skiff in at the natural ramp of Sanchez Park the sun was just peaking up. The sky was mostly clear and I knew that the barometer was going to be higher than I had hoped. My perfect deep water drum days have always been nasty, cold, rainy, gray days with the lowest pressure. Through the years, I have nailed the drum on those kinds of days and had to endure very little competition from less hardy fishermen. Dr um fishing in the creek r emained strong until about five years ago but since then I have had little luck. On this day I had brought along a pound and a half of dead shrimp for bait. When y ou fish Strickland with shrimp you had best have plenty of bait for the bait snatchers there are plentiful and hungry. I drifted all morning paying special attention to all of my old drum holes without any luck at all. Around 9 a.m. I did hook a nice one of three to four pounds but the hook pulled free before I could get it to the net. Other than that my only entertainment was small mangrove snappers and sailors choice. S till, I was happy, for it is a beautiful waterway and just as expected the wind could not penetrate the tall trees along the bank. At 11 a.m. I was over an old drum hole that had produced hundreds ov er the years and, sure enough, my light seven-foot r od bent double. Finally, I thought. The water in that spot is more than 12 feet deep and it was a spirited fight. As I cranked the fish up from its lair the first thing I saw was r ed bright fluorescent red. The fish was trailing one of those big oval bobbers of the type that has the steel rod through its center. Soon I could tell that my drum was actually a 20-inch redfish. That is a decent size fish, but the fight far exceeded the red's size. I soon saw that the r eason for that was that my 4/0 circle hook had managed to turn itself completely through the fish's tail back near the spot. I was pulling the fish up tail first with a bobber attached. Once I had it in the boat I could see that it had swallowed someone else's 4/0 hook and it was lodged deep in its throat. I figured by the looks of the hook and the fish that it had probably happened the previous day. That was one unlucky fish to fall for a big hook on two consecutive days. It would be my only take-home catch for the day. The old creek is only a shadow of its former self but there is still some life left in her if you know how to fish it. If y ou would like to learn St r ickland Creek a good place to start would to be to call either Paul Messick or Kent Gi bbens. Those two guides know that water as well as anyone. Look for them both on the Internet. Hopefully, y ou will catch a fish that has y et to be caught.

Christmas Eve, it was a traditional I talian seafood meal and the opening of gifts. Christmas morning, it was gifts from Santa (until us kids were old and jaded enough to know better, and even then, my dad would sometimes slip an unwrapped gift under the tree for old time's sake). Then, around 2 or 3 p.m. on Christmas afternoon, a giant meal of lasagna and prime rib (it was just lasagna for years, but my three brothers eventually voiced concern that it just wasn't a holiday without a big honkin' piece of meat on the table). After some belt loosening and quick cat naps on the sofa, the real event my favorite part of Christmas began. The Loiacono family Christmas open house. F olks we hadn't seen since the previous Dec. 25 and those we had seen just the week before would come by throughout the day, some staying for hours, some just a few minutes. Davey was always the first, bearing his latest girlfriend and a bottle of some fancy whiskey for my dad. Then, Johnny G., as we called him, a burly and bearded old friend of ours who was usually bearing not much more than a sparkling personality and appetite for leftovers. Wine and beer flowed, food was brought back out and inevitably, the evening ended with some sort of card game that my dad always seemed to win. As us kids got older, it was more our friends who were visiting, but my parents were just as engaged and friendly as ever. Seriously, my dad could be friends with a 14-year-old as easily as with his old Army buddies. To him, people were people and friends were friends, and all should be treated with love and respect and lasagna. My parents taught me a lot about the importance of family and friends, especially around the holidays. It doesn't take gifts or fancy parties to bring people together, just a loving spirit and welcoming home.

4December 2011FOREVER YOUNG VO LUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS This time of year,media images abound depicting extended families happily gathered around festive holiday meals and glowing fireplaces decked with decorations.But for many Baby Boomers,the r eality is that Grandma and Grandpa have retired elsewhere,their grown children are bound to jobs in different states,and in this economy,not everyone can afford to travel. Ho we ve r, it's worth it for families to make an effort to connect during the holiday season. "Research shows that people report more happiness as it relates to holidays and traditions when they're with their family,"said Dr. Br igid Noonan,associate professor and chair of the Department of C ounselor Education at Stetson University. It 's not the turkey or tinsel but the maintaining of family traditionsThe gift of familyThe holidays are seen as a time to gather family and honor tradition.

6December 2011FOREVER YOUNG VO LUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS W hen parents age, we must let some holiday traditions go During the holidays one of the more upsetting aspects of aging, for some, is the disruption of time-honored traditions that make up the flavor and dynamic of the family unit. We tend to place so much pressure on ourselves at this time of y ear that we forget what is important, putting too much emphasis on keeping the memories of past celebrations current without allowing ourselves to be flexible. Relieving the pressure we place on ourselves to have the "perfect" seasonal celebration might enable us to enjoy the moment and accept the changes that have occurred over recent y ears. O ur family's past Thanksgiving and Christmas feasts were always held at our parents' home, which, for most of those years, was big enough to handle a family that grew yearly with the addition of spouses and significant others. When grandchildren started having their own children, the numbers r apidly multiplied. After the inevitable downsizing move to a smaller home, we still tried to squeeze everyone into our parents' place, wanting to preserve the ritual but ended up sacrificing comfort. Last Thanksgiving was the first gathering at a different location, which wasn't too terribly traumatic and proved to be a seamless "moveable feast." Pr o vided those family recipes remained on the menu and everyone showed up, we r ealized it did not matter where the goodies were served. Christmas, however, always involved a lavish brunch in the morning followed by the hours-long exchanging of gifts. M om always put on quite a spread, arising before dawn to make special r ecipes requiring last minute preparations. Obviously, it has become more difficult for her to take on these tasks and dad, who used to assist with duties outside the kitchen, forgets what all the hoopla is about and just watches in confusion. Last year my husband and I stayed over on Christmas Eve so we could help out in the early morning hours of stuffing the pastries, baking the cheese cloud and setting a festive table, among other things. Working alongside mom, cooking dishes from her faded r ecipes, was bittersweet as I knew this was the first step in her handing over the gauntlet of our family's cherished tradition. We left out one or two offerings to ease the stress and, you know what? Nobody even noticed. This "just let it go" attitude works in other aspects of the season, also. I nstead of their usual trip to purchase a r eal tree, a one-step, pop-up, pre-lit version was ordered online. It may not have looked as fancy in the daylight hours, but once night fell and the lights we re turned on, it was just as festive as every other year, with a fraction of the work.

"One loyal friend is worth ten thousand relatives." Euripides,Greek playwrite The Ormond Senior Center is always filled with people taking part in the several activities offered there. Bingo, dancing, cards, painting many different interests can be satisfied. But really, everyone's there for the same reason, Center Director T eddy Blauvelt said. To make friends. "W hile our center is very activity-oriented," Mr. Blauvelt said, "It's really all about the connection. To come and visit with their friends and make new friends." It 's so important, Mr. Blauvelt said, that the center started a "friendship group." It meets every Thursday at 11:30 a.m. Attendees just talk, tell stories and make plans for outings. It is the center's most popular group, something that does not surprise Mr. B lauvelt. There was a woman, she had just moved here from South F lorida and she didn't know anyone wasn't a card player or anything," he said. "S he was kind of despondent. I mentioned the friendship group to her. She came the first time, hesitantly, but then just fell in love with it. Now, she seems much happier. S he is the first one to show up every week usually with baked goods!" An increased level of happiness in an older person who has made new friends doesn't surprise experts either. The positive relationship between friendship activity and psychological well-being has been clearly established, especially for those who either live far away from their family or do not have any relatives left. "(Friendships are) critical throughout life," said Dr. Richard Tucker, U niversity of Central F lorida professor emeritus of psychology. "B ut they become more critical when y ou get to a certain age and a point where y ou may have lost a spouse and are alone." And the importance of having connections grows exponentially this7December 2011FOREVER YOUNG VO LUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS The gift of friendsNot everyone has a big family around on the holidays.

11December 2011FOREVER YOUNG VO LUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS A Christmas pig roast and a tree on the hill For me Christmas has always been a time to enjoy family and lots of good food. As I look back over the years I must say I have fond memories of each and every one. B ut a few standout. One that I treasure happened in the middle 1980's when my y ounger sister Linda, her husband and two sons moved west of DeLand to a little spot called Paisley. If you are not familiar, it is a very small ru r al outpost about five miles w est of the St. Johns River that is completely surrounded by the huge Ocala National Forest. Their new home was situated on a very large and hilly lot. At that time, Linda and I had lots of extended family living around Central Florida and we decided to try and get them all together for a holiday pig roast. As roast master it was my job to go up to Pierson to buy a fully dressed hog of nearly 100 pounds. It was fun going to the country slaughterhouse to pick out our pig and spend a few moments with the man who had raised it. At my insistence it was to be the men who would do the cooking. First, I dug a long shallow pit and covered it with steel bars. Some of the others went into the forest and brought back truck after truck of hard wood. The night before Christmas Eve, we began by building a giant bonfire. As the wood burned down we shoveled the hot coals under the pig and readied ourselves for a long night. To do this job properly the hog must be slow cooked with lots of love and attention. The key to the whole thing would be my secret recipe barbeque sauce of which I concocted about four gallons (you can never have too much sauce). As the night began, my helpers numbered about 10 but as Linda's wellfortified homemade eggnog started to take effect, the men began to look for a spot to curl up and nap. Around midnight the cracklins (pig skin, for you city folk) reached crispy perfection and we all eagerly dipped them in my delicious sauce and ate our fill. Having regained our senses somewhat, a TV-VCR set up was brought out and we all watched one of the earliest versions of "A Christmas Carol." As we hissed and booed Scrooge and cheered for Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim we poured whiskey all around, foregoing the eggnog this r ound.

14December 2011FOREVER YOUNG VO LUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS that is most important, Dr. Noonan said. "F or some people that might mean going and volunteering at a homeless shelter or soup kitchen or going to a local fire department, or it may mean just getting in the car and driving around and looking at all the lights," she said. Sights and smells related to holiday traditions are also important. No matter which holidays families celebrate H anukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa "it primarily has to do with being together as a family." Scott and Sue Chappuis gather family and friends at their Ormond Beach home throughout the year, but the holidays in particular are when they open their home to their large extended family, as well as friends who don't have family nearby. "E verybody doesn't always come," S ue said, "But whoever is available knows they're welcome." To accommodate crowds of as many as 30, they set up tables in the screened-in patio outside and serve dinner on paper plates. "W e' re always very casual," Sue said. The couple smokes a large ham and Sue's mom, who lives down the street, bakes a large turkey. The couple admit it can be a big effort to host the large gatherings, but they feel it's important. That's just what the holidays are for," Scott said. While hosting such large gathering might sound stressful, Sue says she enjoys doing it. "I love to cook, so I'm in my element," she said. With the Macy's parade on television and family members in the kitchen helping to make pies, Sue said, "I just cook all day and visit." The couple lessens potential stress by letting guests contribute, and in recent years they've downsized the meal. "W e' ve limited the menu and we 'v e asked people to bring covered dishes," Scott said. "Since it's mostly family, we have some of the same things each year. We just assign those dishes to people." "W e have a lot of fun cooking, teaching the kids to cook and watching the Macy's parade," Sue said. "The nice thing is that we're teaching the younger group that this is what you need to do," she said. "When the pies come out, they're all excited because they helped make it." F or families who don't live in the same area, maintaining holiday traditions is more of a challenge. When travel isn't an option, far-flung family members can use other avenues of communication to touch base during the holidays, Dr. Noonan said. Whatever people can do to connect, using social media or Skype or any of those types of communications to at least try and connect, that's the piece; it's the connection re lative to maintaining of traditions whatever that means to that particular family." F or some families, that connection might lead to conflict. In such cases, Dr. Noonan advises setting aside differences for a more appropriate time and place. "I f you have some unresolved issues with family members, this isn't a good time to solve it. Keep y our lip zipped," she said. "A lot of people don't, and they find that keeping the lip zipped would have been a better idea." Those who don't connect with others during the holidays put themselves at risk for depression, Dr Noonan said. For some people, however, reaching out is difficult.

According to the Pew Research Center's Internet and American Life Project, 65 percent of adults now use social media to keep up with friends and family, up from 60 percent a year ago. Among Baby Boomers ages 50 to 64, social networking site use grew from 20 percent to 32 percent in the last year. "While seniors are testing the waters, many Baby Boomers are beginning to make a trip to the social media pool part of their daily routine," said Mary Madden, senior research specialist and co-author of the report released in August 2011. Along with social media, today's smart phones make it easier to keep in touch with generations of family members on the go, so if you're still sitting by that old wall phone in the kitchen waiting for the grandkids to call, maybe it's time for an upgrade.

"A lot of folks, particularly as we get older, we don't want to be a burden. "O ne of the things the literature is r eally trying to stress is it's important for people to get out and about." F or those who don't have a family gathering to attend, volunteering is a good way to connect with others. S enior centers, YMCAs and the V olusia County Council on Aging can be helpful resources, Dr. Noonan said. There are also online r esources such as myeldersource.org, which has a section called "Be Involved" that lists volunteer and employment opportunities. This publication r uns a listing of local volunteer opportunities every month. "I t' s also OK not to feel jolly," Dr. N oonan noted. To lessen the risk of depression, she recommended avoiding excess alcohol intake and engaging in "environmentally conscious" holiday activities such as avoiding overspending and overeating. What a lot of people do is they kind of go off their whatever their normal schedule is," she said. When people do it for longer than two weeks, it can become a negative pattern of behavior" F or family members, particularly the elderly, who are unwilling and unable to get out and about, Dr. No onan said it's important to have a phone tree, an elder care organization or family members who can check on them. That is really important, because it brings peace of mind for us who have aging parents," and for the parents, "it's good to know that yo u' re being checked on," she said. F or those with large families, small families or no family, the holidays can be a joyous time we just have to take steps to make it that way.F amilyFrom page 14 M any Council on Aging homebound clients have no family near them during the holidays. To help these clients the council has traditionally sponsored the Santa For S eniors initiative. The purpose of S anta For Seniors is to give the community an opportunity to assist in providing a little holiday cheer for homebound clients. On Thursday, Dec. 8, Council on Aging, in partnership with Lohman F uneral Homes, will have three drop off locations for the public to drive by and drop off a gift of cash, gift cards, canned hams or new unwrapped gifts for a senior male or female client. The drop off points include the following Lohman Funeral Homes' locations: 935 W. New York Ave., DeLand 733 W. Granada Blvd., Ormond B each Lohman/Cardwell location at 3571 S.

18December 2011FOREVER YOUNG VO LUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS under the tree each year for us as well as our children, and more recently, our grandchildren. She always took great pleasure in spending days of gift wrapping and last minute shopping, even as dad would complain about the drain on the checking account. O ur gift this year is that we have them here with us for another precious season. Looking forward to future celebrations we can create new traditions for the younger ones and preserve as many of the old ones as long as we can. Down the road, our purpose should be to make these special family times as r elaxing and comfortable for our elders as possible and proudly take that gauntlet and turn it into our own. A favorite mantra of mine, "I t is what it is, provides a simple reminder that some changes in life are out of our control but as Dr. Seuss once said, "Don't cry because it's ov er. Smile because it happened." S usan Young lives in New Smyrna Beach and spends her time loving and caring for her parents,children and grandchildren.T raditionsFrom page 6 to be successful the animal must be turned regularly. That task r equired four men to each grab a leg and make the flip. Unfortunately, by 2 a.m. there was only a quarter of that number awake me and I was becoming undependable. A couple hours later, my first cousin Randy woke up long enough to stagger over and fall onto the picnic table, dumping out the entire four gallons of prize-winning barbecue sauce. As the sun came up, we were all asleep and the pig was getting cold. Along about 10 a.m. of Christmas Eve we were able to give the pig a couple hours of concentrated attention and the part that wasn't burned seemed to be cooked pretty well. That afternoon all of the womenfolk began to show up with their delicious side dishes and desserts. That evening we all ate outdoors and most agreed that the hog had turned out OK, considering the cooks' lapse in sobriety and hence, attention. No one but me seemed to mind that there was no sauce. Right at the top of the hill on Linda's property grew a Florida cedar tree over 30 feet tall. Each family had brought a strand of colored lights from their own tree and we strung them on the big cedar. When it was completely dark we plugged it in amid "oohs" and "aahs." Later we were told it could be seen for miles. Of course, the women began to sing Christmas songs and the hungover men tried to join in as w ell as they could. It was certainly a Christmas to remember. S adly, my sister Linda, who was a true baby boomer (born in 1947), passed away in 2003. But memories like these of that crazy pig roast keep her in our hearts especially during the holidays. These days family is still so important this time of year. My wife Lana and I center our holidays around our daughter S hayla's beautiful 8-year-old, our granddaughter Delayna. We would like to wish a merry Christmas to you all. Please enjoy each other while you can. Land LinesFrom page 11 Each family had brought a strand of colored lights from their own tree and we strung them on the big cedar.

"B eing alone and then you overlay the holiday season, and all the emotional ties that go with it that can be very difficult." Dr Tucker, who serves on the Council on Aging of Volusia County Board of Directors, said while traditionally people think of the holidays as a time for being with family, friends are no cheap substitute. While family ties are obligatory, friendship is voluntary," he said. "W ith family, there is a whole history there and while things may be wonderful, there also may be problems. So being with friends you have chosen can actually be better for you." N ot to mention that family members may be of a different generation and not have much in common with their elders. "W ith friends of the same age, you may have a common history and much more in common," Dr. Tucker said. Mr. Blauvelt agreed that having r elationships with people who are peers is vital. That's a very important factor that they have things in common," he said. "In the friendship group, they are always talking about similar exper iences they really bond over that." B ut it's not just emotional ties that make friendships so important for older people, Dr. Tucker said. It can be logistical. "S omeone may need transportation or physical assistance," he said. "Having friends they can rely on expands their physical environment." And those who are giving that assistance benefit as well. "I t' s clear that helping someone is good for brain wellness," Dr. Tucker said. Which is why he suggests people who are alone look for opportunities to help others by volunteering. "I t' s really about the social engagement," he said. "So any kind of volunteer effort is beneficial." Also, going to places like the Ormond Beach Senior Center, where there are activities and people to meet is a great idea, especially around the holidays. "W e definitely get more people this time of year," Mr. Blauvelt said. "T here is an emotional attachment during the holidays and if they don't have it with family, they really feel theF riendsFrom page 7 Ormond Beach Senior Center 351 Andrews Street Ormond Beach (386) 672-4146 Council on Aging of Volusia County (386) 253-4700 www.coaiaa.org
