DAYTONA BEACH SHORES City leaders may help business owners with the costs of replacing their existing signs to comply with a more restrictive sign ordinance. The City Council recently discussed the idea of establishing an incentive grant program to help business o wners with the cost of r eplacing, eliminating or altering existing pole and ground signs to conform with changes to the city's sign regulations restricting business owners to monument signs. The new sign regulations we re narrowly approved in Ap r il despite opposition from many business owners, who felt it would be too costly to replace the signs and could result in people driving on A1A having a hard time finding a business. A majority of council members felt the pole and ground signs that exist today distracted from the city's streetscape improvements. U nder the terms of the new regulations, business o wners have 10 years to alter or remove their signs to comply with the mandatory monument sign r equirements. But to encourage a speedier pace in bringing the signs to code, City Planner Stewart Cr uz said council members approved $18,000 in their budget for the current fiscal year to provide funding to business owners that would assist in the costs. This is essentially a program that would hasten the r emoval or alteration of nonconforming signs into conformity to have a maximization of (the taxpayers' investment in) the underground utility project," Mr. Cr uz said. A ccording to city staff, 146 of the 179 freestanding signs around 80 percent of all signs in the city will have to be altered or r emoved to conform to the mandatory monument sign requirements. U nder the proposed terms of the program, a business owner qualifies for a matching incentive grant where the city and business owner split the bill 50-50 to replace the sign if the business has a pole or ground sign made nonconforming due to the new sign ordinance and serves to advertise an onsite business on a property adjacent to A1A or D unlawton Boulevard. A pplications would be r eviewed on a first come, first served basis. The City Council plans to formally establish the program by resolution at a later date, which has not y et been determined. Once approved, City Manager M ike Booker said he would mail out a notice to the business owners informing them of the matching grant program. Ma y or Harry JenningsCity Council approves concepts for Riverwalk marina projectPORT ORANGE The slow and steady process of negotiations on the long-awaited Riverwalk project may soon result in some development. T aking one of the first steps that would bring Riverwalk development plans to reality, the City Council approved concepts for a 38-slip marina; a marina activity building, including a 30-seat cafŽ; a permanently docked riverboat restaurant; and a 109-space parking lot located within 35 acres along the Halifax River. Pa r ker Mynchenberg, a project engineer representing developer B uddy LaCour, said the proposed development would meet the project's goal of reopening the area to the public and generate activity in the area before the city begins developing a riverfront park there. "W e' ve got to get a toe in the water," Mr. Mynchenberg said. "This is the first step down there." To get the public park off the ground, Mr. LaCour and the City C ouncil are negotiating a land swap. Mr. LaCour offered to exchange five of the six riverfront parcels he and his partners own for 10 city-owned parcels; council members want the ri verfront parcels for the park, while Mr. LaCour wants the city's land for future commercial development. While a majority of council members felt the project would be a positive starting point" for the Riverwalk area, some citizens disagreed with the project's inclusion of a riverboat restaurant. Bo b Scalise, a concerned citizen, said a riverboat restaurant at Riverwalk would be a bad idea, given the uncertainty over whether Mr. LaCour would pay any taxes to the city for operating a restaurant on the boat. "H e' s putting a boat in so he doesn't have to pay for a restaurant," Mr. Scalise said. "Why would you give serious consideration to this unless there was some fee being paid every y ear in addition to some taxes? Where is this helping us?" City Attorney Margaret Roberts said the Volusia County Property A ppraiser told her there "may or may not" be personal property taxes that could be collected from the proposed ri verboat restaurant. V ice Mayor Bob Pohlmann said he didn't understand the citizens' oppoA-One Family PracticeOffice Hours:Monday Friday 8:30 am-4:30 pm Kashyap Patel M.D.Accepts Most Insurances € Same Day or Next Day Appointments Available € Medicare € HMO/PPO € Se Habla Espanol A CCEPTING NEW PATIENTS AND MOST MEDICARE PLANS386-615-8971 325 Clyde Morris Blvd Ste 340 € Ormond Beach,FL32174 386-310-8745 322 Big Tree Rd € South Daytona,FL32119 V isit Our New Location042904 TRUSTED, COMFORTABLE & AFFORDABLE DENTAL CAREPA UL SZOTT D.M.D. KERRI GRAHAM D.M.D.386-944-5002FILLINGS $150CROWN/CAPS $675 FULL DENTURE RELINE $175769735Call for appt and more details.Your insurance may cover at usual & customary fees.Offer good for 60 days from date of receipt.THE PATIENT AND ANY O THER PERSON RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYMENT HAS A RIGHT TO REFUSE TO PAY, CANCEL PAYMENT, OR BE REIMBURSED FOR PAYMENT FOR ANY OTHER SERVICE, EXAMINATION, OR TREATMENT THAT IS PERFORMED AS A RESULT OF AND WITHIN 72 HOURS OF RESPONDING TO THE ADVERTISEMENT FOR THE FREE, DISCOUNTED FEE, OR REDUCED FEE SERVICE, EXAMINATION, OR TREATMENT.Regular price on fillings include D2140-$150, D2150-$175, D2150-$175, D2160-$185, D2161-$195, D2330-$185, D2331$175, D2332-$200, D2391-$150, D2392-$175, D2393-$200, D2394-$225, (Crowns regularly $900 code D2752) (Denture regularly $1000 code D5110 or D5120) (Reline upper denture regularly $350 code D5720) (Reline lower denture regularly $350 code D5751).

City staff said the owner of Skate City at 1790 Nova R oad plans to remodel the building and convert it into a climate-controlled storage facility, plus develop the vacant lot next to the building into an outdoor storage facility for r ecreational vehicles. City leaders recently took the first step in moving the project forward as the Land Development R egulation Board unanimously approved a r equest from Rink Properties, which owns Skate City, to rezone the property from Volusia County General Commercial to S outh Daytona Business H eavy Commercial. Next, the property owner must submit a site plan for development of the climate-controlled storage facility and RV storage facility. Co mmunity Development Director John Dillard said the rezoning request was sought because of the limited amount of uses permitted under the county's General Commercial z oning. He added the proposed rezoning would fit the character of the Nova R oad corridor, which is business-heavy. "O ur comprehensive plan shows the future land use in this area is all commercial," he said. "It doesn' t really give a designation between the levels of commercial, but it is consistent with the future land use plan." Mr. Dillard also said the re z oning would also affect the economy because the construction of the parcels, as well as the storage facilities themselves, should generate new jobs in the community. He did not give a specific number as to how many jobs it would create. S kate City was first built in 1973 and operates on a limited basis, with its website listing weekend hours of operation. A call to S kate City requesting comment on the property o wner's plans was not r eturned before press time. Pr operty owner John Schnebly and project engineer Jerry Finley attended the LDRB meeting where the rezoning request was approved, but did not speak before the board about the project. Mr. Schnebly and Mr. Finley also did not return phone calls requesting comment. Mr. Dillard said in an interview after the meeting that although Skate City has an active business license, he hasn't noticed much activity there.Randy Barber/ staff photographer Gail Earles of Port Orange stacks a mountain of cups during the 7th annual World Sport Stacking Association Stack UP!' at the Port Orange Regional Library, Thursday, Nov. 15.

said the incentive program is aimed at improving the condition of the streetscape along A1A. "I t' s going to be an additional enhancement to the city when this is all finalized," he said. In other business, council members approved an ordinance updating the city's land development code to include fees for false alarm r esponse. City code defines a false alarm as an alarm r esponded to by the city's public safety department that was activated through "inadvertence, neglect, accident, unannounced testing, and faulty installation or maintenance." A ccording to city documents, there would be no charge for the first three false alarms in a calendar y ear, while the fourth would r esult in a fine of $50, each false alarm after the fourth carries a fine of $100, and failure to appear and reset the alarm within one hour of being notified of the alarm sounding is $20. Mr. Booker said his staff would actively promote the ordinance to inform residents of the new fees. "W e' re going to be lenient at first coming in," Mr. B ooker said. "We're not just going to put the hammer down." N ational Adoption Day. The agency's leaders expressed a lot of love during the ceremony at Sunset H arbor Yacht Club in Daytona Beach. "Y ou will be united with y our forever family, who will show you love and listen to y our concerns," Mark Jones, chief executive of the Community Partnership for Children, said to the adoptees. Fi ve judges presided over the ceremony, each taking a turn in the proceedings. "W e are binding families together in a relationship that will last forever," said J udge Leah Case. The other judges were Chief Judge W illiam A. Parsons, James Clayton, David Walsh and Thomas Portuallo. In presenting a proclamation, Volusia County Councilman Josh Wagner noted 34 adoptions took place in the tri-county area of Volusia, Flagler and Putnam, but there are still 42 children in need of adoptive homes. All you have to do is love them," said Col. David Ab r amowitz, director of the No r theast Region of the DCF. Du r ing the ceremony, the families stepped to the front one at a time where they we re introduced by their o wn attorney to the judge who would preside over their individual case. After a few short questions, the documents of adoption we re signed, making each of the six new families "forever families." F riday, November 23, 2012 Hometown News A2Po rt Orange/Ponce Inlet So.

"Do wn in New Smyrna B each, when that boat was going to be towed in there, everybody thought that was the second coming, what a wonderful, wonderful thing it would be for the riverfront to have a boat down there, yet we have the opposite mentality up here," Mr. Pohlmann said. "I support (the riverboat r estaurant). I think it's something that would be a good starting point." B ut Councilman Bob Ford, the lone opponent of the Riverwalk project, considered Mr. LaCour's proposal "a step backwards." He opposes the ri verboat restaurant and the development of temporary parking spaces on a crucial part of the riverfront land known as the point. "I f we're going to call that a park and put parking and priv ate development in the middle of it and deny our residents increased vista views and all the rest, I don't think we 'r e doing the right thing," Mr. Ford said. "I think we're panicking We are increasingly abandoning our plan and turning it into a mishmash."ProjectF rom page A1

F ans of the automobile from all across America will choose to spend their holiday in Volusia County. The big four-day Turkey Run show at Daytona International Speedway will host up to 5,000 customs and hot r ods and, up in Ormond B each, The Birthplace of S peed events will present some of the world's finest pure restorations. The world famous Gaslight Parade will be on A1A on Friday night and the antique car show will be on the northeast corner of the Granada Br idge on Saturday. The Thanksgiving car w eekend began in 1959 making it one of the oldest continuous shows in the nation. Actually the roots of the big automobile celebration began back in 1903 when the very first race was held on the beach at Ormond. That one mile drag r ace between the Olds Pirate and the Winton Bullet would forever brand this area as a Mecca of speed. In the entire world there are but a few cities whose name is synonymous with auto r acing. Daytona Beach certainly ranks near the top. Each year on Thanksgiving we get to enjoy the results of that fame. I will be in Fortunato Park in Ormond Beach on S aturday at the Birthplace of S peed Show with my group, the Motor Racing Heritage Association. We are hoping to sell the remainder of our bricks from the original Ormond Garage in order to build our replica of that famous facility. Back in 1976, I watched the original garage burn down on East Granada Boulevard. Built in 1904 by Henry Flagler, it was the first facility in the world built to house and repair r ace cars. To this day it is re vered by fans of the automobile. The MRHA is now nearing completion of a long quest to build a small version of the garage in The Birthplace Of Speed Park on the dunes ov erlooking the original start line of those ancient r aces. Our garage will house the two replica race car monuments that were bought by the city for the 2003 Centennial of Racing. When it is completed, the MRHA will make a gift of it to the City Of Ormond B each. We began this project back in 2009 so it has been a long and difficult haul but now the end is in sight. With y our help, this weekend can put us over the top. If you know someone in your family who might like to o wn a rare piece of racing history, come and see me in the park from 10 a.m. until 3 p .m. on Saturday. The bricks are suitably aged and a bit banged up and come with a certificate of authenticity for atax-deductible donation of $200.A brick would make a fine Christmas gift for anyone who is a fan of r acing, carsor history.For those of you who wish to get a personalized copy of my fishing book, they will also be for sale by the Ormond B each Historical Society. The OBHS also sells great Bi r thplace of Speed caps, Tshirts and books. F olks, this is a great way to spend your Saturday after the holiday. Pack up a couple turkey sandwiches and come on out to enjoy the fine cars in a beautiful setting along the Halifax River. The car show and parade in Ormond Beach are free to spectators.Stop by our table and talk a little history with us (or fishing) and help us finish our very worthwhile project.

M ost times, when an adolescent presents the sheriff's office with obstacles, achievement awards do not follow. This is not one of those times. F ourteen-year-old Kaj Eckhardt, a member of Boy Scout Tr oop 804, began the detailed process of earning his Eagle Scout ranking exactly one y ear ago. After discovering the Volusia County Sheriff's Office K-9 training field needed some sprucing up, Kaj decided to make that his community project. The purpose of the Eagle Scout project is to give the scout an opportunity to plan, develop and give leadership to others. Eagle Scout projects are evaluated on the benefit to the organization being served and on the leadership provided by the candidate. There must also be evidence of organized planning and development," according to scoutingmagazine.org. J immy Davis is the assistant scoutmaster helping with Ka j' s project. H is role? Whatever the scoutmaster tells me to do," he said. Mr. Davis said he "came on board" to help Kaj a couple of months ago. The troop met at my wife's church, so I got drafted. It's only an hour a week. That's the running joke in Boy Scouts, only an hour a week," he said. The man-hours on Kaj's project are actually 542 and counting according to Kaj's grandfather, Sam Eckhardt, who is a scoutmaster and the committee chairman for Tro op 804. Ka j' s dad, Troy Eckhardt, also a scoutmaster, and Kaj's 12-year-old brother, Japheth E ckhardt, a Boy Scout First Class, are members of the large crew helping Kaj with the endeavor. "W e' ve had a lot of people, a lot of family members who are police," Japheth said. "K aj's always been interested in the K-9 Unit and we heard this needed to be done." J apheth nodded when asked if it's been a lot of work. "Y eah, but it's enjoyable," he said. K aj appears to think a lot more than he speaks. He's polite, articulate, focused very focused and maybe a little shy. H olding his project notebook close to his chest and glancing around at the newly r estored obstacles on the course, he looked serious. He said the project turned out to be a little more difficult than he expected, but not much. "I thought helping the K-9 U nit would be cool," he said. "I think it's pretty important." K aj said the completed project will have to be granted final approval by the Ad v ancement Committee B oard of Review and the N ational Council of the Boy Scouts of America before he'll obtain the coveted Eagle Scout ranking and badge. He and his dad both hope that will happen before the end of this year. This is the 100th year anniversary of the Eagle Scout," Mr. Troy Eckhardt said. "That's why we're really trying to get it this year." Sgt. David MacDonald has been in charge of the Volusia C ounty Sheriff's Office K-9 U nit for two years. He said he's worked with Kaj and his crew for the better part of this year. The little guy has done a heck of a job for us," he said. "H e' s a good kid." He said Kaj is definitely making a difference for the community with this project. "H e' s done everything from planning and measuring, ov erseeing the work done by the others, to final restoration of our obstacles all at no cost to us," Sgt. MacDonald said. S tar Scout Sam Brunnig, 15, is a dedicated member of Kaj's crew. "Y ou always help the person ahead of you so when you become (ready for) Eagle Scout people will help you get y our project done," he said. An independent research study, Merit Beyond the B adge conducted by Baylor U niversity, demonstrated the significant, positive impact Eagle Scouts have on society every day. The study found that Eagle Scouts are more likely than men who have never been in Scouting to have higher levels of planning and preparation skills; be goal-oriented, and network with others; be in a leadership position at their place of employment or within their local community. The study showed they r eport having closer relationships with family and friends; volunteer for religious and nonreligious organizations; donate money to charitable groups; and work with others to improve their neighborhoods. S ince it was first awarded in 1912, more than 2 million y oung men have achieved scouting's highest rank, according to the Boy Scouts of America website. Ka j' s dad said the Eagle Scout project is not permitted to be something that benefits an individual or a family, that it must be outside the Scout's sphere of influence, a church sometimes the church where a troop meets or something to benefit the community at large. In addition to general planning, designing and organizing, the future Eagle Scout is r esponsible for the project's fundraising. In Ka j' s case, there was plenty of legwork there, too. "S ome of it he worked for doing lawn care for people, household maintenance and that kind of thing," Mr. Eckhardt said. Some of it was solicited donations from business owners. Part of it was donations from Lowes and from All Star Lumber in Ormond Beach." Mr. Eckhardt said Kaj also got a matching grant from the Dr Phillips Foundation in Orlando. The project's total costs exceeded $2,500 he said. Mr. Davis said the rankings leading up to Eagle are Scout, T ender Foot, Scout Second Class, Scout First Class, Star and Life. The majority of boys drop out when they hit Life. That's when it gets tough," he said. F riday, November 23, 2012 Hometown News A4Po rt Orange/Ponce Inlet So.

Pictured from left to right: Principal Dr. Todd Sparger, students, Abeer Eltemtamy of Port Orange and Ryan Intriago of Daytona Beach Shores, Guidance Counselor Susan Change, and Mr. Leonard.T oo loud for comfortMy adult friends and I have learned to stuff cotton balls in our ears when we are going to Epic Theatres in Deltona because of the ear splitting volume of the upcoming attractions, ads and the all too numerous "crash and explosions." P lease hire someone to monitor the ear-splitting decibels in the new theatre. In response to: Don't go Bob' I am so happy someone said don't go Bob Garcia. I think the people who represent DeBary need to apologize to the taxpayers. They acted like a bunch of spoiled brats and should apologize to the citizens of DeBary.We need you, JimmyFo r mer president Jimmy Carter goes to third world countries to monitor their elections. I think it is time we admit we need his assistance here in Florida with our voting fiasco. Dining with dogs in Ormond BeachS ome restaurants have been allowing dogs on their patio for some time without it being legal. I have filed four complaints with the Florida Health Department against Einstein's at Nova Road and Granada Boulevard for allowing dogs on their patio. I have even been taunted by customers after complaining to the manager and a corporate office. It has been illegal for dogs to be at restaurants, except for service dogs for a long time. Please take the time to read the r equirements of the Dixie Cup Clary Local Control Act, which the city of Ormond Beach will now be responsible for. Pr ior to making complaints I saw a couple with a dog at E instein's throw up all over the dining area. The owner went inside and grabbed napkins, after petting the dogs and having vomit on her hands. Another time a dog urinated and then defecated under the table. Not a pretty sight. Another consideration is what happens if a dog bites a child or person while they are walking into the restaurants or dining nearby. Also some people may be allergic to dogs. If they are allergic, why should they have to go to restaur ants that prevent dogs from being there? The city staff has the power to prevent something like the above happening. P lease say no to doggie dining. My personal view is to not allow dining with dogs in Ormond Beach. Although I am not a resident of the city of Ormond Beach, I live on the borderline and dine frequently at most Ormond Beach restaurants.T oo confusingI am surprised Rants & Raves has not been flooded with r ants about that crazy Florida ballot. I have never seen such gobledy-gook writing in my life as those constitutional amendments. It seemed to me they were written purposely to confuse. I am glad Florida didn't get the chance to be the confuser" and muddle the election results temporarily or permanently. Get it together Florida. You are looking very juvenile.We need a dog beachAre dogs allowed on the beach in Ormond Beach? No. Dogs are only permitted on Jacksonville Beach and Neptune Beach before 9 a.m. or after 5 p.m. Dogs must be on a leash and have a current rabies tag. Dog owners must clean up after their dogs. Dogs are allowed anytime on Atlantic B each, but must also be on a leash no more than 12 feet long This is the provision that allows dogs on the beach in J acksonville. Many in Ormond-by-the-Sea would like to pursue a similar policy as aforementioned, with limited hours for our dogs on the beach. Dogs love the beach, dog o wners love to see their dogs frolic on the beach. It is great exercise for both dogs and humans and a great way to connect with your neighbors. Those that oppose dogs on the beach are often those that do not like pets or fear them. I have never seen a problem with dogs on the beach in Flagler Beach just north of Ormond Beach or further north in Jacksonville. We need to have our own dog beach. Recycle?We are told all the time to save paper. Yet everyday I r eceive tons of junk mail in my box. Recycle you say? I have made two calls for the past three weeks trying to get a bin delivered. Spoke to the same person who assured me twice I would receive it to no avail. I use my electricity to shred, w ear and tear on my shredder, bag it in plastic. And into our landfills it goes. I have tried returning junk mail to senders and was told by the mail deliverer that it just gets thrown away at the post office and I might as well do it myself. Go figure.Senior ServicesIt has come to my attention that some of our senior citiz ens who rely on service transportation to go to doctor appointments are left to sit and wait for a return ride. While these appointments can be lengthy, after the appointments are over they are left waiting sometimes three or four hours for their transportation to return and bring them home. This just sounds so unreasonable to me and most of these people are unable to walk a long distance and need this transportation to go from one place to another. I am not sure where the problem lies, but someone needs to look into it. I wouldn't want to be in that position at all and neither would most people. So why would we subject the most vulnerable to be stranded for any length of time. I am not sure what the standard procedure is to call the transportation office and tell them the patient is ready to go or if they just have to wait for the transportation company to show up to pick them up. There is an error of ways somewhere in their procedures. I know that some of the buses have to go from one town to the next to drop off and pick up, but it is impossible to go from Orange City to Deltona and then to D aytona Beach in 45 minutes of time. So if someone knows the correct answer I think our senior citizens have the right to be treated with the same respect we treat others. LettersThanks for nothingI wish to thank Gov. Rick Scott and Ed Connor of the V olusia Tax Reform movement for dealing a deadly onetwo blow to the children of our county. The governor has slashed state aid to our schools to the bone while finding $3 billion in tax breaks for his friends in the business community. Ed C onnor and his group believe people cannot afford to pay an additional $65 a year to prevent the draconian budget cuts that will have to be instituted to an already decimated school board budget. These two individuals will be responsible for lowering the quality of education our children will receive in the public school system. I think all Volusia County school children should send a note thanking Gov. Scott and Mr. Connor for all they have done to advance their careers in the hotel industry. The note should thank these two men for preparing our children for careers as chamber maids and pool towel boys. Ja mes M.Doumas Po rt Or angeThanks for the explanationI just wanted to add to the thank-yous you are probably r eceiving regarding the explanation of the amendments. It was so refreshing to witness a publication actually reporting news without a political slant of their own. Keep up the excellent work! This is just one more reason why I enjoy looking in my driveway for the H ometown News each w eek. S teve Braukhoff DeBary The annual enrollment period for M edicare Advantage plans and standalone drug plans is here. Y ou can enroll or make a change through Dec. 7. Any change you make would take effect on Jan. 1. Unless you qualify for a special enrollment period during the year or are eligible for Medicaid or the Extra Help program, this is the only time you can change your coverage for 2013. The Florida Department of Elder Affairs' Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders or SHINE program provides free, unbiased counseling and information for individuals eligible for Medicare, their families and caregivers. SHINE counselors are trained to assist you in understanding your options so that you can make informed decisions. When you meet with a SHINE counselor by phone or in person, they will begin by asking you about your income to determine whether or not you might be eligible for Extra Help, which helps r educe the cost of your prescriptions, or a Medicaid program. If y ou are looking for a drug plan, we will ask you to provide a list of all the prescriptions you take, as well as the dosage and the frequency for each medication. If y ou are searching for the best M edicare Advantage plan, there are some questions you can ask in advance that will help to narrow your choices in finding a plan that fits best: Will the plan allow you to continue using your present doctors? If you had to go to the hospital, would your hospital of choice be included in the plan's network? Will you need a referral from your primary care doctor to see a specialist? Do you desire to have coverage when traveling? Does the plan offer extra benefits like vision, dental, hearing aids, and gym membership? Are the drugs you presently take part of the plan's formulary and what will they cost? What is the plan's monthly premium, as well as co-payments for doctor visits, etc.? C omparing the different plans using the answers to these questions will help y ou arrive at the best choice for you. A SHINE counselor can help you find available plans in your area and can assist you with any questions. Once your decision has been made, y ou will have one opportunity in 2013 to disenroll from your MA plan during the annual disenrollment period. The disenrollment period runs from Jan. 1 through Feb. 14. During this period, you will be able to leave the MA plan you chose and return to original Medicare (Part A and Part B). Y ou will also be able to enroll in a standalone prescription drug plan at the same time. The effective date will be the first of the following month. So if you made the changes during January, your effective date for the change will be Feb. 1. You would again be able to enroll in a Medicare Ad v antage plan during the next annual enrollment period (Oct. 15-Dec. 7, 2013). A SHINE counselor is waiting to assist you with your choices. The counselor will not make any decisions for you, but will guide y ou through the comparison process so y ou can make an educated choice. C all the Elder Helpline toll-free at (800) 963-5337 to contact a SHINE counselor or to volunteer. L ynne Meagher is the Brevard County SH I NE area coordinator.Contact her at (321) 752-8080 or email lmeagher@cfl.rr.com.

The unemployment rate dropped to 8.4 percent because of a combo of more workers getting jobs and others dropping out of the workforce. That's down from 8.8 percent in September and 10.4 percent from a year ago. B ut the non-agricultural employment report, based on surveys of employers, shows Volusia is still down 2,100 jobs from last year. B usiness and professional services continues to be the big downer with 1,600 fewer jobs than last year. The only bright spots were manufacturing, up 100 jobs, and leisure and hospitality, up 300 jobs. The Orlando area, on the other hand, is up 21,700 jobs from last year and Jacksonville is up 6,300 jobs. Ev en Brevard County is up 1,800 jobs. It's a real headscratcher as to why Brevard is up, considering all the layoffs at the cape, while Volusia is down. It just makes y ou wonder what is going on out in the labor market. *** It 's nice to see the Dollar General Market going into the former Food Lion on the beachside in New Smyrna B each. It would be even better if Dollar General would use other vacant Food Lions for its new Market concept. How ever, at least in Ormond B each and Port Orange, the former Food Lion is just a few hundred yards from an existing Dollar General store. *** Y et another restaurant could give it a go at what was originally The Wreck at the foot of the Main Street Br idge on the beachside in D aytona Beach. The property owner is trying to get the parking variance renewed, so it can find another operator. *** H alifax Media is moving forward with plans to develop the vacant land along No va R oad, just south of S ixth Street. Halifax Media and the new owners of the land are asking the city to approve a preliminary plat for the project. *** Domino's Pizza will be moving to a new spot in Deltona. The DeLand-based franchisee obtained a building permit to renovate space at 1675 Providence Blvd. *** W ith lower gasoline prices, it's a good guess that the Thanksgiving weekend crowd will be bigger than ever in Volusia County, especially with the ever growing popularity of the Tu r key Run at Daytona I nternational Speedway. Be safe, so you can enjoy the continuing holiday season.

Randy Barber/ staff photographer Entrepreneur looks to dryeye treatment for successE ditor's note:This is the last article in a series about businesses at the University of Central Florida Business I ncubator. S ignificantly improving the treatment of chronic dry eye probably won't win Dr. Allen T. Jackson the kind of international acclaim that makes him a household name, but if he has his way it could bring jobs to Volusia C ounty. "D ry eyes is a glossed-over phenomenon," he said. "It seems very simple and is treated very simply. It is a complicated problem and it causes misery to many patients." B ut there are not many lining up to start companies to research, develop and manufacture products to improve treatments for the condition, so Dr. Jackson started Delta Dynamic De velopments back in 2003 with chronic dry eye firmly in mind. Now his company is one of about a dozen upstarts at the University of C entral Florida's Business I ncubator at the Daytona B each International Airport, 601 Innovation Way. "I t doesn't get great attention, because dry eye never makes anyone go blind," he said. "All of the products on the market address the issue partially." M any know Dr. Jackson from his work at Florida Eye R esearch & Surgical Therapy I nstitute in Daytona Beach. He 's been a practicing ophthalmologist since 1996. That year he started practicing at the Darnall Army C ommunity Hospital, Fort H ood, Texas. Mr. Jackson started his commission in 1985, and came to the area in 2006 after retiring from the military. B ut he's not a one-trick pony. In addition to doing r esearch and development for dry-eye treatments, Deltona Dynamic Developments is creating for manufacture other personal health items, such as portable sanitation kits. Dr. J ackson said much of his company's approach is based on what folks can do to take personal responsibility in healthcare, thus greatly reduce their expenses by staying healthy and ease burdens on the often-overtaxed medical system. "I think (over-the-counter and prescription dry-eye treatments) might end up being our flagship product, but as the company is evolving it's actually changing into a general product kind of situation." It 's a natural fit for Dr. J ackson. "I have a master's degree in public health and disease prevention," he said. "Overall we want to promote health and prevent disease." W ith products that get jobs generated around here. "O ur idea is to do everything local," the doctor said. "W e actually hope to produce and manufacture everything out of Volusia C ounty." In 2010 the Volusia County Council approved $1.4 million to renovated a 10,000-square-foot facility to house it. Additionally, the county gave the university $750,000 to run it for three years. The business incubator is a place to start a company," Doris "Connie" Bernal, the business incubator's D aytona Beach site manager, said in a previous interview. "The entrants have a lot of resources to work with here. They have professionals who help them with a number of areas." Dr Jackson said the incubator has given him much access to very specialized medical-business research help "I t provides a lot of r esources," he said. "It provides advice from previously successful entrepreneurs and resources of the University of Central Florida. One thing about the incubator, they consider themselves a network. While I'm in the D aytona Beach incubator, I can participate in things going on in other incubators." UCF has 10 businessincubator sites ranging throughout Central Florida. It was founded in 1999 and has about 80 current clients. A ccording to its website, the incubators have generated about 1,600 jobs in the area with average salaries of $59,000.

These majestic plants come in a variety of colors including red, white, pink, magenta, yellow and orange. These plants are a popular commodity at most retail outlets during the holidays and usually will sell out fast. The individual flowers can add a burst of color to your dŽcor for a week or more, while a single plant's blooming cycle can continue for a month or mo re. Christmas cacti, or schlumbergera russelliana, are not true cacti so they will not tolerate totally dry conditions for long periods of time. These plants are native to Br azil and normally grow up in the trees and thrive on organic materials such as mold and rotting leaves. S ince they enjoy the shade of the tropical forest, they will not tolerate direct sun or dry conditions. These plants can last for many years under the right conditions and with a little TLC. When the plants mature, the leaves tend to form a cascading burst of color that looks great in a hanging basket. You can also easily propagate the plants by taking cuttings and planting them directly in a high quality potting soil that is light in texture. Christmas cacti are fairly easy to grow in an indoor home atmosphere. They have a great ability top withstand cool temperatures and short periods of dry spells. As easy as it is for these plants to grow, it will take a little extra TLC to get the bountiful flowers that are their trademark. One important factor in the flowering process is to start allowing the soil to dry out between watering cycles as winter approaches. It is also very important to place the plants in an area that will have less than 12 hours of natural or artificial light for at least six weeks. Also, it is important to keep the temperature cool during this process. Once y ou have your flowers started, you can resume y our normal watering schedule along with your normal room temperatures. As you can see, with a little TLC and some special care, you can have beautiful flowering Christmas cacti year after y ear without the cost of having to replace your plants every year. If y ou buy poinsettias for the holidays, one of the most common pest problems you might encounter is the whitefly. If y ou shake the leaves of the plant and you see little white specs flying around the plant, your poinsettia is infested with whiteflies. Whiteflies are typically very hard to control but with this quick tip, you can avoid dangerous insecticides. You can use a handheld vacuum to get r id of these pests, simply disturb the leaves of the plant (carefully) with one hand while you vacuum the whiteflies away with a sweeping motion around the plant. This process can also be used for other houseplants that might acquire these pests. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

W indows 8 came out a couple days before Halloween and I've had a lot of calls from people asking me if they should consider upgrading. In the past, whenever M icrosoft released a new operating system, I have always advised people not to jump on the band wagon r ight away but rather stay with their proven operating system for as long as possible (a year or more) to give the folks at M icrosoft enough time to work out all the bugs that get submitted after the new operating system has been r eleased into the wild. S ometimes the transition goes smoothly (as it did with the transition to Windows XP) and sometimes the transition is a disaster (as it was with W indows ME) but in the past, it was always fairly easy to find new machines running the older, more proven operating systems and wait until they got all the bugs fixed on the new system before making a change. This strategy helped many people avoid the Windows Vista fiasco several years ago and instead transition straight into the more stable W indows 7. W ell here we are just a couple weeks after the release of W indows 8 and I'm afraid the strategy of waiting a goodly amount of time for them to prove the new system in the r eal world just might be limited this time around. Y ou see, just a few days after the release of Windows 8 I ventured down to the local big-box office supply store to have a look and was really surprised to find only Windows 8 machines on the floor! I asked the sales guy if they still had any Windows 7 machines. He brought me over to a rack with a half a dozen tags or so that y ou could bring to the cashier and they would get one of the re maining Windows 7 machines from the back but was told they have none "on the floor." And when the ones they have in the back were gone that was it. No more W indows 7 machines would be available from that big box store. This time around I'm not so sure how long the older, proven Windows 7 operating systems are going to be available on new machines. So what exactly is wrong with Windows 8? Well, that's the real question now isn't it? U ntil the new system has had some time in the real world to shake out the bugs we really don't know what, if anything, is wrong with it. It may be the most stable system yet but one thing that is obvious at a glance is that Windows 8 is the most radical operating system change since it went from W indows 3.1 to Windows 95. The biggest, most glaring change is that with Windows 8, Microsoft has seen fit to do away with the Windows start button (the button at the lower left corner of the desktop that first came out with W indows 95) and replace it with a new-fangled start screen that in no way resembles the start menu that we've been using for almost 20 y ears! Last week I answered my first call on a Windows 8 machine and I'll be honest, I wasn't prepared at all for what I encountered. I spent a considerable amount of time just looking around trying to find the familiar features, tools and controls that we've come to expect in Windows and found that (thankfully) most of the tools and features are still there, it's finding them that's the problem. After I successfully completed that call I did something I'd advised against oh so many times and went out and bought a machine with Windows 8 just so I would have a system to become familiar with. The You Tube videos just we re n' t going to cut it this time around. I'm happy to say that I can indeed support the new system. When people call for support I know how to walk them through getting connected to me quickly and that's 90 percent of the battle. Once I'm connected I can help people learn the new system, find what they are looking for and get their problems solved. And so far so good, aside from the missing start button the system seems lightning fast and pretty stable. I just hope no serious "gotchas" pop up this early in the game.

On a Monday evening, I r eceived a call from C aptain Leo Hiles of E dgewater. Leo had spent the day fishing and had really nailed 'em. That's all I had to hear to be standing on his dock T uesday morning before the sun came up. I knew from the photos that Leo had limited out on trout and brought in his one legal red, so my anticipation level was soaring. We had decided to only fish lures so we could try out some of the new offerings from The Grandslam Bait Co. On the day before, the good C aptain said the trout were so thick they would eat most anything that hit the water. When Leo eased the Blue G host into one of the same coves that he had worked the day before it was still very early, so we both picked up our rods baited with top water. The tide was very high, but sure enough we could see a school of maybe five nice reds pushing water as they cruised back and forth. Leo threw his old favorite bone colored Zara S pook but I tried out a new lure from the Hall Co. of Orlando. It didn't take long until we could see this was not going to be easy. The fish were not interested. Oh, they would r oll up next to the lures and even take a half-hearted hit on occasion, but were just not in the feeding mode. I began to think about that old fishing saw "you should have been here yesterday." It seemed to apply. Leo did manage to get one somewhat interested, but after a nice strike that missed, a small trout rushed in and took the bait. We we re not happy to watch the big red swim away as the trout came to the boat. After that we moved on to the trout hole from the previous day and that, too, was dead. No w, we knew we were going to have to work to make this trip pan out. Whenever I have to get down to business I go to my old standby the chartreuse shrimp tail and Leo tied on a paddle tail swimmer, both Grandslam products. We began catching a few 14-inch trout and Leo had a couple reds of about the same length, but fishing for keepers was tough. Working along a bank we both know very well I finally had a hookup with a nice fish. It hit so hard I immediately yelled "r edfish," but pretty quickly it became apparent I had a big trout. Leo reeled in and grabbed up the landing net as I worked the fish to the boat. That may have happened a little too quickly for the big gator trout was still "g r een" when it saw the boat. As it made the u-turn for another run the jig pulled out. A disappointment for sure on a slow day, but still pretty good fun. The trout had to have been between five and six pounds and around 24 inches long. A beautiful fish, it was shaded golden from the stained water. Of course, the jig it ate was the Grandslam version of my chartreuse tail that they now call Dan Smith Special E dition. As the morning continued we picked up a steady take of undersized trout and reds, but the big fish just would not bite. By trips end we had caught 16 trout and four reds and released them all. That was not the day that either of us envisioned, but it was a lot of fun. Sharing a boat with Capt. Leo is always a trip in itself.

F riday, November 23, 2012 Hometown News B8Po rt Orange/Ponce Inlet So. Daytona/Daytona Beach Shores This time of year many of us travel to see family and friends, or just get away from said family and friends. If yo u' re heading somewhere that doesn't have snow on the ground, there may be a chance that yo u' re taking your clubs. After all, what's a holiday without a round or three of golf? There is also the chance that you may leave the sticks at home and rent a set at the course. This is always a good idea if the thought of you playing golf while with the family on a holiday trip isn't likely to be met with unbridled enthusiasm by the family. The last time I went to visit family and rented a set, I was a little less than excited by what I saw in the bag. While I wasn't expecting a $1,000 set of rental clubs, I was hoping for something a little better than I what I wound up with. My set consisted of a pretty good driver, a model from about a half-decade ago. The fairway woods we re one of the first steel headed woods of their kind. The grips must have been original as they were as hard as my head and slick as ice. The irons were a mixed-match of three or four different brands and two of the wedges were the same loft. The putter came from a miniature golf course. You know, the ones with the plastic heads. Only five or six of the clubs in this set had grips that I could actually hold onto. I should have suspected something was up when the course only charged me $5 to rent them. S omewhere on the front nine I decided that no matter how hard it was, the next time I traveled and intended to play golf, my trusty sticks were coming with me. A friend of mine who listened to my rant about the clubs I rented had a simple solution. If you're driving, take all the clubs out of your bag and place them in the trunk or back of the van. If necessary, bring only half the set. I could have easily found a spot for my driver, putter, a w edge, a hybrid and four irons. I shook my head at how stupid I was for not thinking of that at the time. If y ou actually have the r oom, packing your clubs can be a breeze. Just use a lot of common sense and think light, especially when yo u' re flying to your destination. T ake as light a golf bag as possible. Many seasoned golf travelers have a light carry bag, one that fits easily into their travel bag. M ake sure that the travel bag is easily identifiable. When shopping for a travel cover, look for one that has r oom for that extra long driver, your shoes, a sweater or a jacket and maybe even a change of clothes. The airlines will no longer allow you to lock y our checked bags, so take a thorough inventory of what's in the bag. T ake your golf balls out of your bag and pack them in your suitcase. This saves a tremendous amount of w eight. To trim even more, leave the balls at home and buy them when you get to the course. To prevent your clubs from clanking and scratching, wrap your towels around the heads and put the rain cover on. To help protect that extra-long driver, cut a broom handle down to about two inches longer than your driver and place it in the golf bag. This puts any pressure on the broom handle and not your precious clubs. Cut a hole in a tennis ball and use it to cover the end so that the handle won't rip through the bag. While waiting for your luggage in the baggage claim area, find out where the oversized bags are unloaded. Bags that are too big for the carousels are often brought out separ ately and staged in a different area. If yo u' re r enting a car, look around for the rental counters when you get to the baggage claim area. M ost travelers retrieve their luggage and then head for the rental car counters, which tend to get busy all at once. It's a good idea to consider getting y our car first. Chances are the line will be shorter and it's a lot better than watching strange luggage go around and around and around. Whatever you do when traveling, be sure to call the course first if you are depending on them for clubs to play your round with. Golf is difficult enough without having to use equipment that's impossible to play with.

4November 2012GIFT GUIDE East VOLUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS W ith so much turmoil in the world caused by everything from natural disasters to war, it may seem difficult to get into the holiday spirit. B ut don't let your holidays get high jacked by forces beyond your control, it's time to take a step back and look around you for all you have. As we enjoy our Thanksgiving dinners, try to search your mind for what you can be thankful. I'm thankful for the many blessings I have received this year and look forward to a wonderful 2013. I hope your family has been as fortunate. In this guide, we try to provide tips on how to make your holiday shopping experience a successful one, but also want you to be safe. We also hope y ou can help those less fortunate. M any people in the Northeast especially need assistance, so the Red Cr oss is a good organization to keep in mind for your holiday donations. O ur soldiers stationed across the globe also need to be kept in mind. Getting down to the gift buying, yo u' ll see that tech gifts are as big as ever, but there also is some non-tech stuff that will bring just as much joy. Citrus has always been a big item and this year is no different. But there is a lot of food items produced in this area with a special holiday theme. As always there are plenty of hot toys on the shelves and we've found out the top ones this year. While the malls and the big, open air shopping centers always attract attention, don't forget the many small, local businesses that also can provide unique gifts for your loved ones. This area has a large enough market that it has attracted nearly every top retailer in the nation, but sometimes it can be something special from a locally owned business that will really stand out. F or your tree, you may want to keep in mind an adventure to a Florida tree farm. There are some within a short drive and they always provide excitement for kids and kids at heart. We've also provided some tips on how to find that perfect tree. Of course, there also are the many holiday events in the area, from ballet to concerts to parades to plays. P eabody and Flagler auditoriums have the big shows, but there also are some great performances to be found at smaller venues in New Smyrna B each, Ormond Beach and Port Orange, as well as area churches. Another great family outing is ice skating and you can take the family to the Bandshell in Daytona Beach or the ice rink in South Daytona. We probably won't have a white Christmas in Volusia County again this year. But with so much to do this holiday season, you should take advantage of living in a place where y ou don't get quite as frosty enjoying the great outdoors. 2012 Gift Guide Introduction: Don't let your holidays get high jacked CECIL G.

7GIFT GUIDE East VOLUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2012 The Watson have been growing Christmas trees since 1985. Now, they plant about 1,000 Red Cedar and Leyland Cypress on about 5 acres. "O ur trees range anywhere from four to 10 feet, but we are running short on big trees this year," Mr. Watson said. They have a lot of six to seven footers, too. He r ecalls one customer who wanted a tree tall enough to go next to her 33-foot spiral staircase. "T r ees grown at the farm are $5 a foot," Mr. Watson said, "and the ones we bring in from North Carolina are $8 a foot." C ustomers don't need to bring anything with them, Mr. Watson said. They choose their own tree, but we cut it and load it on the vehicle, preferable a truck. That's all there is to it." In general, artificial trees are less messy and easier to put up than real trees, according to the University of F lorida Extension Service, which has an office in DeLand. They can also be healthier for your family, since some children may be allergic to real trees. B ut if you want a real tree, Mr. Watson said a Leyland Cypress is better for those with allergies. Choosing your own tree at a farm can be a memorable family adventure out in the country. Mr. Watson's farm has refreshments, wreaths, crafts and restrooms. But always call before you go to make sure the farm is open. W atson's operates from Nov. 23 to De c. 23. Artificial trees can be higher-priced than real trees, but they can also be r eused. They come in various sizes and styles, many with lights built into the tree. Whether you buy a real or artificial tree, know the size and height of the area where you want to put the tree.T reesF rom page 6 See TREES, 8 Randy Barber/staff photographerJim Watson of Oak Hill checks on his Leyland cypress trees at Watson's Cedar GroveU-Choose-We Cut, Tuesday, Nov. 6. 039261 037035

8November 2012GIFT GUIDE East VOLUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS Y ou don't want to buy a tree that's too big for your house. R eal trees can be purchased at stores, Christmas tree lots or pick you own at a farm, such as Watson's. U nfortunately most artificial trees end up in landfills when they go out of style or become worn. R eal cut trees can be recycled or used in compost piles. There's nothing like going directly to the farm and cutting down your own tree. You won't get a tree any fresher and you can pick just the right tree. But there's more to it than that. Mr. Watson also has fresh cut trees from a small farm in Linville Falls, N.C. "I make several trips and select the trees. When I get home, I keep them in the shade and watered," he said. The Fraser firs are all No.1 grade trees. They will be available Nov. 23, he said. He also brings back wreaths that are available for $20. When buying a cut tree, choose one that has a strong scent and looks fresh and green. Thump the trunk on the ground to shake off any loose needles. If the tree loses a lot of needles, you may want to choose a different one. K eep your tree fresh, green and healthy by making a fresh cut on the stem at least one forth inch or more above the original cut, according to the Florida Christmas Tree Association website. This will cut off the pitch that has formed and will enable the tree to take up water. After you have made the cut, immediately place your tree in a sturdy stand that will hold at least one quart of water for each inch diameter of the stem. Check the water supply regularly. Do not add anything to the water. Research has shown that plain water will keep your tree fresh. If the water supply runs out, a seal will form on the cut surface of the tree trunk, which will prevent the tree from taking up water. To get ready for future years, "in February, we plant from 750 to 1,000 trees," Mr. Watson said. Tr ees take 4 to 6 years to grow 6 to 8 feet tall. He also said fresh trees are more fire resistant. "W e plan to operate the Christmas tree farm as long as we can," said Mr. Watson. W atson's Cedar Grove U-choose & cut, 180 Cedar Grove, Oak Hill, is just north of the Brevard/Volusia C ounty line.

Local grocers have already stocked their coolers with TG Lee's popular and always anticipated regular, lowfat and pumpkin-spice eggnog.

Electronic gadgets are always near the top of everyone's wish list during the holiday season and that looks to be true this year more than ever for one big reason the tablet wars. Once the domain of just one company, Apple, there are now more tablet choices than you can probably count in every price range imaginable, which is good news for consumers. With so many choices, however, comes lots of confusion. So let's try to sort it all out. The top pick for many folks will be the Apple iPad. It is the most expensive, but there are more affordable choices this year thanks to the introduction of the new iPad Mini, which starts at $329. That's a lot more than most competitors, but the lowest price ever for an Apple tablet. As the name implies, the mini has a smaller screen (7.9 inches versus 9.5 on the r egular iPad), but also a slower processor and a lower resolution screen. This is a good choice if you absolutely must have an Apple product and don't want to spend the big bucks for a regular, latest generation iPad, which starts at $499. The other option is the older $399 iPad2, which has a full size screen, but, like the mini, a slower processor and lower r es screen. All prices rise quickly if y ou add features like more memory (16GB is the starting point. Add $100 for a 32GB model and $200 for 64GB) or a cellular connection (an extra $129). Most folks can get by with the base level wi-fi versions. Choose an Apple tablet if cost is not a concern and/ or you are already ensconced in and happy with the A pple iTunes ecosystem. (This means y ou already own an iPhone, iPod or M ac computer.) F or everyone else, there are arguably better choices that are much less expensive. Most of these tablets are built around the competing Android operating system developed by G oogle. But it may not always appear that way because some tablets have been customized to look different. Amazon's Kindle Fire, the second most popular tablet model behind the iPad, is the most notable example. There are lots of new choices in the K indle Fire lineup this year. An updated version of the original Fire with a 7-inch screen is the bargain of the shopping season at $159. There's also a new HD version with a faster processor, higher res screen, improved speakers and Wi-Fi capabilities for $199. The screen is a bit smaller than the iPad Mini's but the r esolution and internal specs are better, for $130 less. Like the Mini, the K indle Fire HD starts with 16GB of memory but the upgrade to 32GB only cost $50, not $99. F or those looking for a bigger tablet, Amazon will soon begin selling a Kindle Fire HD with an 8.9-inch screen for $299, an excellent deal for a tablet of this size. It was scheduled to be r eleased Nov. 20. The downside to the Kindle Fire is the customized operating system it uses locks you into Amazon's ecosystem and you do not have full access to the broader Android universe of apps or the latest Android operating system. However, access to Amazon's large library of books, music and movies is probably a bit easier on its o wn products. If y ou don't care about that and want more of a pure Android tablet,14November 2012GIFT GUIDE East VOLUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS Shopping guide for electronic gadgetsBy T ony BriggsF or Hometown News See ELECTRONICS15 037580

15GIFT GUIDE East VOLUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2012 the best bargain is probably Google's N exus 7, which goes for $199. Sa msung, Toshiba, Asus, Lenovo and others sell Android tablets with screen sizes ranging from 7 to more than 10 inches, with prices falling inbetween the Google/Amazon price point and the top of the line iPads. Any would be a good choice, if the price is right (look for big markdowns during the holiday shopping season) and you are satisfied with the Android OS. In my testing, I have found A pple's iOS is smoother and less crash prone than Android's. Apple's apps also tend to be better designed and more of them have been customized for the tablet's larger screen. M ost Android apps were designed for the smaller screens on smartphones and can be ugly on a tablet. As if these choices weren't enough, there will be one more big player in the tablet arena this year M icrosoft. Its new Windows 8 operating system was designed to work best on tablet touch screens and there will be lots of Windows 8 tablets on store shelves this year. However, it's hard to r ecommend them for a couple of reasons: 1. They are expensive, at least as expensive as iPads. 2. It's a new operating system, which means there will be a learning curve. Gi ven the uncertain future of Windows 8 tablets, the safe course is to steer clear of them this year. Ditto for the raft of no name tablets out there, some selling for very low price points. M any have inferior touch screens, substandard electronics and questionable operating systems. Enough about tablets. What else is hot this year? N intendo Wii U: The latest incarnation of the wildly popular Wii video game console was set to go on sale No v. 18 and looks to be a big seller, if for no other reason than it's new. S tarting at $299, the new Wii will feature more advanced electronics for better high definition gaming, and a new GamePad with built in touch screen and face camera. Like the comp eting Xbox and Playstation, WiiU has also been redesigned to serve as a media center that can control your TV and display streaming video content from Hulu and Amazon S martphones: Apple's popular new iPhone 5 is expected to be on a lot of wish lists this year. It features a larger screen, better camera, 4G and improved performance. But it also has come under fire for a new mapping app that is full of errors and lacks a lot of detail contained in the older Google Maps app, which was dropped. Other popular smartphone choices in the Android universe include the Samsung Galaxy Note, with its massive 5.3-inch OLED screen, the Galaxy SIII and the super thin Motorola Razr. HDTV: There isn't much new here on the technology front, but prices continue to plummet. Think 32-inch models for $250 or less, 50-inchers for less than $500 and 60-inchers for less than $1,000. These are basic models (usually plasma) and prices rise dramatically with features like 3D, LED backlighting and built-in smart TV functionality. If size really does matter, and cost is no object, go for one of the massive new 90-inch models, which retail for about $10,000. D ual-band wireless routers: With everybody streaming Internet video these days, you probably need as much bandwidth as you can get in y our house. Consider upgrading to a dual-band router, which can transmit on the old 2.4Ghz frequency (used on older A, B and G devices) as well as the 5GHz frequency used by newer devices that support the wireless N standard. Cisco (Linksys), D-Link, N etgear and Belkin are well known manufacturers. Expect to pay between $75 and $200.

16November 2012GIFT GUIDE East VOLUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS The holidays are a festive time of y ear, but they can also prove stressful for the millions of people who travel to visit friends and family or use time off during the holidays to go on vacation. Because so many people travel during the holidays, airports are more crowded than usual and the nation's r oadways often experience heavy traffic, especially on the days immediately before and after a holiday. There are certain dos and don'ts that can make holiday travel much easier. DO plan ahead. Leaving holiday travel plans until the last minute is a r ecipe for disaster. Some air travelers feel it's more affordable to book flights in the weeks leading up to the holidays rather than months in advance. While it's possible to find last minute airline deals, it's very possible such deals will put travelers on standby. That's potentially disastrous during a travel season that has frequent flight delays or cancellations due to inclement weather. Book travel plans as early as possible to avoid the hassles of last minute bookings. DON'T blame airport staff if things go awry. The holiday season can be stressful for those who have to travel, but it's exceedingly stressful for the men and women who work in the travel industry. Airline employees, particularly those who work at ticket counters, are too often treated poorly by travelers who need someone to blame for flight delays and cancellations. The same goes for the people who work at bus or train stations. R egardless of how inconvenient interr upted travel plans can be, it's never the fault of the person working at the airport. It's often a result of inclement w eather, which is something no one can control. DO insure your trip. As mentioned above, flight delays and cancellations are common during the holiday season. Heavy snowfall can wreak havoc on travel plans, even for those people who live in relatively temperate climates. Travelers traveling to or from r egions where heavy snowfall is a possibility should always protect themselves against flight cancellations or delays by insuring their trips. Insurance is often inexpensive and can protect travelers if their flight plans go awry. DON'T try to make up for lost time. While there's little air travelers can do to make up for lost time, those traveling by automobile often try to make up for lost time by driving aggressively. Nothing could be more dangerous, as the roads are often ov ercrowded and driving conditions during the holidays are rarely ideal. Ev en if a traffic jam or other delay makes it impossible to stick to your travel schedule, don't risk disaster with aggressive driving. Instead, call y our destination and explain you will be a little late because of delays on the r oadway. No matter where you are going, be it a hotel or to a friend or family member's house, they will understand the situation and they will certainly prefer you get there safe and sound. DO be an early bird. The early bird gets the worm, and when it comes to holiday travel, the early bird can also significantly reduce the stress of traveling. If traveling by air, get to the airport extra early. This way you won't have to fret when the lines at baggage check or security checkpoints are long. If traveling via automobile, get up early and hit the road before most drivers are even out of bed.

17GIFT GUIDE East VOLUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2012 Gift wrapping tricks and tips The holidays are here and that means shoppers have started to stockpile gifts for those they love. Once the shopping rush is over, the time to wrap all of those great finds and treasures has come. Although some people are giftwrap gurus, there are many others who feel that their wrapping skills are lacking. Regardless, anyone can create delightful wrapped gifts with a little know-how.P repareThe first step to wrapping is to have all of the supplies in one place. There are some people who have actually dedicated small rooms as gift-wrap stations. While you don't have to go this far, find a large table and keep your tape, tags, paper, ribbon, scissor, pen, and other accessories nearby. Also, sort out the gifts according to recipient and have any gift r eceipts handy to wrap up with the gift. Wr ap at a time when there are no distractions and you can devote y our attention to the task at hand, like after children have gone to bed or during the day when no one is home.P aper or bags?When purchasing wrapping paper, it may be tempting to skimp on the quality of the paper to save money. However, a thicker, higher quality paper will make wrapping go more smoothly. That's because it will be less likely to tear on boxes or when you're rolling out and cutting it. Thicker paper means you'll also be able to achieve more intricate folds and better creasing around boxes. It also may be more forgivable around oddly shaped items. G ift bags are the go-to wrapping medium when you're short on time or have items that are not easily wrapped with paper. Because they come in a variety of sizes and even giant plastic bags to contain large gifts they are often more convenient.Other tipsThere are different tips that can help with wrapping. Buy neutral-patterned wrapping paper that coordinates with other papers. This way if you run out of one type of paper you can stagger other pieces and make a collage of papers so there's no waste. Use ribbon to dress up a gift and direct the eye away from any imperfections. Keep a stack of paper scraps and use it instead of tissue paper to fill in gift bags. Keep scissors sharp for clean cuts. Pack smaller items or oddly shaped things into a different container that is easier to wrap. Roll up clothing and place into a paper towel tube to turn the wrapping into a candy cane shaped gift. Pr actice often makes perfect when it comes to wrapping gifts. H aving the right paper, a few decor ative supplies and some patience can ensure that gifts look festive this year.

18November 2012GIFT GUIDE East VOLUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS Holiday shopping forecast is optimistic Geri McShane loves to shop. She's a finder of bargains, a diva of dŽcor and a purveyor of scrumptiousness at her holiday gatherings. So, it's hard to believe her when she says she's going to be "extremely cautious" this holiday season. This year is going to be more needbased than want-based," she said. "I feel like the way things are I just want to get back to what it's really all about. I want an old-fashioned Christmas and I want to focus on the reason r ather than the retail." B ut the National Retail Federation, or NRF, is forecasting a different picture than the one Mrs. McShane paints. A report on its website stated that the NRF predicts holiday sales this y ear will increase 4.1 percent to $586.1 billion higher than the 10y ear average holiday sales increase of 3.5 percent. This is the most optimistic forecast NRF has released since the recession. In spite of the uncertainties that exist in our economy and among consumers, we believe we'll see solid holiday sales growth this year," said NRF Pr esident and CEO Matthew Shay, in a statement posted on the website. Mr. Shay cited the recent election and general concern about economic growth as variables that could affect consumer's spending plans but, he said, "overall we are optimistic that r etailers' promotions will hit the right chord with holiday shoppers." A ccording to a disclaimer on the w ebsite, the NRF defines "holiday sales" as retail industry sales in the months of November and December. "R etail industry sales include most traditional retail categories including non-store, auto parts and accessories stores, discounters, department stores, grocery stores and specialty stores, and exclude sales at automotive dealers, gas stations, and restaur ants," the disclaimer stated. S hop.org recently released its 2012 online holiday sales forecast, expecting sales to grow 12 percent over last holiday season to as much as $96 billion. M ainstreet DeLand Association E xecutive Director Jack Becker wants shoppers heading to Downtown D eLand to have a memorable experience. He said that's the goal every y ear. "C hristmas comes every year. We know this, and the fourth quarter is the time businesses make the money to sustain," Mr. Becker said. "As always, we're going to do everything we can to bring people downtown to show them a good time, give them good food and good values." Mr. Becker said holiday shopping should be an event, rather than a chore. "Y ou can go shopping anywhere, but we try to make it a neat experience. That's what we do down here," he said. A sea of smiling faces and cars everywhere on a recent brilliantly sunny Friday afternoon confirmed that Downtown DeLand merchants are doing something right. D an, Tracie and Zoe Theune were shopping downtown for Tracie's birthday. Though they live in Winter Sp r ings, Tracie said they love D eLand's charm. "W e just like your downtown area," she said.

"W e do a mix of both the mall and smaller stores. We like to find the unique stuff in the smaller stores," she said. D eLand business owner Frank Ba r ker said things didn't go his way in the recent election. He looked concerned but sounded resigned. He 's o wned Car Tunes & Tints for 30 holiday seasons and he's ridden the waves of good times and bad. Last year was okay," he said referr ing to the 2011 gift-buying months. "I f it's that way again this year I'll be happy." He said his business usually enjoys a "pretty good Christmas crowd" but that it used to be a lot better. "I t' ll be slow in early December and then the week before (Christmas) everybody comes in at once," he said. A Thanksgiving dine-and-dash is what nbc.com called this season's "B lack Friday" which seems to commence earlier each year, and will inch up this year to Thursday. W almart and Sears both announced they will be opening at 8 p.m. on Thanksgiving and other stores, including Macy's, Best Buy and Kohl's, will open at 10 p.m. on Thanksgiving according to the report on nbc.com.

What happened to spending Thanksgiving Day together as a family instead of fighting crowds to find a name-brand TV for two hundred bucks?"

DON'T overdo it. It's tempting to try to see everyone during the holiday season, but most travelers would prefer to stay in one place for more time than to continue traveling from place to place without spending much time at any one place. Traveling too much can lead to exhaustion, which is especially dangerous for those traveling by automobile.

H ealth and fitness gifts are becoming more popular. With all the emphasis on the dangers of obesity and a sedentary lifestyle, maybe even Santa has been busting some moves to lose a few pounds. I bet the reindeer (and Mrs. Claus) would really appreciate that. "H elping someone you care about become healthier and more fit is one of the best gifts you can give anyone," said Beverly Johnson, vice president of health strategy for the Volusia Flagler Family YMCA. "There are fitness r elated gifts for everyone in the family from ages 4 to 94." F or adults who aren't very active, a membership to a fitness club might be a great way to get them started on a healthier lifestyle. There are a wide va r iety of gyms and other fitness centers throughout the area, and many cater to beginners. "A family membership is an excellent way to do something good for y our entire family, including yourself," said Ms. Johnson. A typical youth YMCA monthly membership costs about $20, and a family membership averages $55 per month. "M embership fees at the Y are income-based," she said. "Depending on the financial need of the family, they might qualify for up to 50 percent off the regular fees." Ms. Johnson also suggests giving gifts of specialty classes, such as cycling, yoga, pilates, Zumba, kickboxing or swimming for the more active recipients on your gift list. Often times, people get into habits and stick with what they usually do. By going outside the lines, you encourage them to try something new something they really might enjoy while focusing on different parts of their body. There are some new, exciting classes out there.

24November 2012GIFT GUIDE East VOLUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS "G ifts of sessions with a personal trainer are also great for the beginning or the seasoned exerciser," she said. "In fact, if you give a gift of group personal training to a friend and yourself, you both have a better chance at sticking with it. "B efore starting on any kind of exercise program, though, it's important to check with your doctor to make sure you don't have any restrictions or limitations before you begin," said Ms. Johnson. "M assages also make an excellent gift," she added. "Many times, even if a person does work out, they don't treat themselves to the softer side of fitness like massage. These can be purchased individually or in packages for discounted pricing." G ifts of fitness clothing or gear especially for the folks who are just getting started are always appreciated. "A lot of people dread exercising, especially when just starting out," Ms. Johnson said. "They just throw on whatever they have and don't invest in a good outfit. If you give them something cute, colorful and stylish, perhaps made from the newer dry wicking fabrics, they'll feel better about themselves and are more likely to go to the gym." Pr ices for fitness clothing vary, of course, but I found several ladies' moisture wicking tops for less than $20 at local department stores, and bargain hunters who are Internet savvy should be able to stretch their dollars even more. "G ym bags also make great gifts," Ms. Johnson said. "The new ones are designed to keep your shoes and damp clothes separate. People generally don't splurge on nice gym bags for themselves. There are all kinds out there." Ms. Johnson has also been seeing a lot of the innovative, less structured workout shoes. The new FiveFinger shoes by V ibram are based on the theory that we r eally don't need as much structure in our sneakers. We were meant to be barefoot. It makes sense," she explained. "They're cute and colorful and we're seeing a lot more of them. That would be a fun gift." A ccording to Ms. Johnson, some other popular, higher-end fitness gifts include computerand GPSbased fitness trackers. These can cost about $200 and more depending on the functions. If yo u' re on a tighter budget, a good basic pedometer with no frills can be found for less than $10 at most of the big box stores. F or those who are watching their budget, fitness gifts don't have to be fancy or expensive. "W ater bottles are always good gifts. Some of them are more ergonomic and are easier to hold in y our hand. They take the pressure off trying to carry one while you're running or working out," said Ms. Johnson. "Exercise mats are another gift idea. Most people don't change them out often enough and whether we like to admit it or not, we do sweat!" S peaking of sweat, sweatbands and socks make good stocking stuffers and are easy on the budget. A fitness magazine subscription may help continue to motivate the recipient long after the holidays are over. And don't forget about the many DVDs and exercise video games out there. Once you get fitness on the brain, it's fairly easy to come up with gift ideas at all price points. But it's not always about finding the right present. "S ometimes, we forget that we don't necessarily have to buy a gift," Ms. Johnson said. "We can make a commitment as a family to eat healthier and to do something healthy together every day. That's r eally the best thing that we can do for each other. Now that is a really great gift."FitF rom page 23 037439O O p p e e n n 7 7 D D a a y y s s 4 4 8 8 9 9 4 4 F F r r o o n n t t S S t t r r e e e e t t € € P P o o n n c c e e I I n n l l e e t t 3 3 8 8 6 6 7 7 6 6 1 1 4 4 8 8 3 3 1 1w w w w w w d d o o w w n n t t h h e e h h a a t t c c h h s s e e a a f f o o o o d d c c o o m m B eautiful Waterfront DiningEn jo y your Holiday Party at Down the Hatch C all today for reservations!V isit our unique gift shopGIFT CERTIFICATES AV AILABLE Come See Our Large Selection Of€ Christmas Decorations € Unique Home Decor € Quality Pre-owned FurnitureNew Items Arriving DailyT ues-Fri 10am-6pm Sat 10am-4pm (closed Sunday & Monday) (386)310-8727furnitureandmorefl.com 0371605571 S.Ridgewood Ave.Suite #3 Port OrangeLooking for Gifts?

The holidays can present a shopping dilemma when trying to come up with unique gift ideas for those older parents, grandparents and great-grandparents whose collection of knick-knacks and cardigans, given to them over the years, far exceeds their need. Pe r haps your loved one suffers from a level of dementia that prevents them from enjoying the gifts we once enjoyed giving them. My dad used to love the challenge of puzzles, so he would always find a new, unusual one under the tree. However, now the dementia, which has destroyed his memory, has also affected his cognitive ability to put together even the most juvenile of puzzles. So, we have learned to think outside the shirt box when choosing a gift for him or my mother, and have had luck with some of the ideas that follow. When dad was having difficulty r ecognizing mom, as a result of vascular dementia, we put together a picture book of scanned, old photographs that took him, chronologically, from their w edding day to their 50th anniversary. We included pages with several houses they have occupied, pictures of cars dad drove, as well as a page devoted to our family dog, Snoopy. Photos of the family growing up, from my sister and me as babies, to our own babies growing into adults, showed all of us aging through the years. At first dad didn't seem to get it, and I was afraid it was a waste of time but, as the days w ent by, he kept going back to the book and now, after two years, still shows it to visitors and even says he wants to be buried with it. There are several websites which walk you through the process of putting such a book together like S napfish.com, Shutterfly.com and W algreens.com. It was a time-consuming process but a labor of love I have never regretted. Another gift that pleased dad is a box of assorted chocolates from our local sweet store on Flagler Avenue in New S myrna Beach, Beachside Candy Shop. He never tires of the yummy group of gourmet truffles from this wonderful confection wonderland. They also carry candies from long ago that might spark memories and conversations of childhood favorites. Contributing to our local businesses also makes us feel good that we are contributing to their success. S hopping for an elderly friend or r elative whose mind is sharp also sometimes presents a conundrum. While cleaning out our parents' home, when moving to an assisted living facility, we found many gifts unused, or duplicates of gifts we forgot they already had. It was an eye-opener as to how we sometimes get into a routine of giving them the same old thing each and every year. So instead of wrapping up another item to collect dust, perhaps an edible gift might be more welcome. Various food catalogues or websites, such as H arryandDavid.com, Wolfermans.com or ThePopcornfactory.com offer yummy gift ideas. Wolferman's sells breakfast ideas in the form of English muffins, cakes, fruit spreads and many more easy-to-prepare foods. The muffins and breads can be frozen and taken out when needed, providing a healthy, filling snack. H arryandDavid.com offers delicious fruits along with other nutritious foods. These gifts might help keep your older loved ones interested in eating at a time when their appetites and waning taste buds might keep them from consuming a balanced diet. 25GIFT GUIDE East VOLUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2012 Gift shopping for the elderly can be a challenge LIFE IN THE MI DDLESU SAN YOUNG See MI DDLE, 26 036817 806 Mason Ave. Daytona Beach, FL32117386-252-5909Got Batteries? 037162 Parts € Sales € Rentals386-767-1573www.DaytonaRVs.com 5858 S.Ridgewood Ave.Port OrangeBring in this ad and get 10% OFF Parts!BEST TOY HAULER SELECTION IN THE AREA!

DAYTONA BEACH SHORES City leaders may help business owners with the costs of replacing their existing signs to comply with a more restrictive sign ordinance. The City Council recently discussed the idea of establishing an incentive grant program to help business o wners with the cost of r eplacing, eliminating or altering existing pole and ground signs to conform with changes to the citys sign regulations restricting business owners to monument signs. The new sign regulations we re narrowly approved in Apr il despite opposition from many business owners, who felt it would be too costly to replace the signs and could result in people driving on A1A having a hard time finding a business. A majority of council members felt the pole and ground signs that exist today distracted from the citys streetscape improvements. U nder the terms of the new regulations, business o wners have 10 years to alter or remove their signs to comply with the mandatory monument sign r equirements. But to encourage a speedier pace in bringing the signs to code, City Planner Stewart Cr uz said council members approved $18,000 in their budget for the current fiscal year to provide funding to business owners that would assist in the costs. This is essentially a program that would hasten the r emoval or alteration of nonconforming signs into conformity to have a maximization of (the taxpayers investment in) the underground utility project, Mr. Cr uz said. A ccording to city staff, 146 of the 179 freestanding signs around 80 percent of all signs in the city will have to be altered or r emoved to conform to the mandatory monument sign requirements. U nder the proposed terms of the program, a business owner qualifies for a matching incentive grant where the city and business owner split the bill 50-50 to replace the sign if the business has a pole or ground sign made nonconforming due to the new sign ordinance and serves to advertise an onsite business on a property adjacent to A1A or D unlawton Boulevard. A pplications would be r eviewed on a first come, first served basis. The City Council plans to formally establish the program by resolution at a later date, which has not y et been determined. Once approved, City Manager M ike Booker said he would mail out a notice to the business owners informing them of the matching grant program. May or Harry JenningsCity Council approves concepts for Riverwalk marina projectPORT ORANGE The slow and steady process of negotiations on the long-awaited Riverwalk project may soon result in some development. T aking one of the first steps that would bring Riverwalk development plans to reality, the City Council approved concepts for a 38-slip marina; a marina activity building, including a 30-seat caf; a permanently docked riverboat restaurant; and a 109-space parking lot located within 35 acres along the Halifax River. Par ker Mynchenberg, a project engineer representing developer B uddy LaCour, said the proposed development would meet the projects goal of reopening the area to the public and generate activity in the area before the city begins developing a riverfront park there. W e ve got to get a toe in the water, Mr. Mynchenberg said. This is the first step down there. To get the public park off the ground, Mr. LaCour and the City C ouncil are negotiating a land swap. Mr. LaCour offered to exchange five of the six riverfront parcels he and his partners own for 10 city-owned parcels; council members want the ri verfront parcels for the park, while Mr. LaCour wants the citys land for future commercial development. While a majority of council members felt the project would be a positive starting point for the Riverwalk area, some citizens disagreed with the projects inclusion of a riverboat restaurant. Bo b Scalise, a concerned citizen, said a riverboat restaurant at Riverwalk would be a bad idea, given the uncertainty over whether Mr. LaCour would pay any taxes to the city for operating a restaurant on the boat. H e s putting a boat in so he doesnt have to pay for a restaurant, Mr. Scalise said. Why would you give serious consideration to this unless there was some fee being paid every y ear in addition to some taxes? Where is this helping us? City Attorney Margaret Roberts said the Volusia County Property A ppraiser told her there may or may not be personal property taxes that could be collected from the proposed ri verboat restaurant.

City staff said the owner of Skate City at 1790 Nova R oad plans to remodel the building and convert it into a climate-controlled storage facility, plus develop the vacant lot next to the building into an outdoor storage facility for r ecreational vehicles. City leaders recently took the first step in moving the project forward as the Land Development R egulation Board unanimously approved a r equest from Rink Properties, which owns Skate City, to rezone the property from Volusia County General Commercial to S outh Daytona Business H eavy Commercial. Next, the property owner must submit a site plan for development of the climate-controlled storage facility and RV storage facility. Co mmunity Development Director John Dillard said the rezoning request was sought because of the limited amount of uses permitted under the countys General Commercial z oning. He added the proposed rezoning would fit the character of the Nova R oad corridor, which is business-heavy. O ur comprehensive plan shows the future land use in this area is all commercial, he said. It doesn t really give a designation between the levels of commercial, but it is consistent with the future land use plan. Mr. Dillard also said the rez oning would also affect the economy because the construction of the parcels, as well as the storage facilities themselves, should generate new jobs in the community. He did not give a specific number as to how many jobs it would create. S kate City was first built in 1973 and operates on a limited basis, with its website listing weekend hours of operation. A call to S kate City requesting comment on the property o wners plans was not r eturned before press time. Pr operty owner John Schnebly and project engineer Jerry Finley attended the LDRB meeting where the rezoning request was approved, but did not speak before the board about the project. Mr. Schnebly and Mr. Finley also did not return phone calls requesting comment. Mr. Dillard said in an interview after the meeting that although Skate City has an active business license, he hasnt noticed much activity there.Randy Barber/ staff photographer Gail Earles of Port Orange stacks a mountain of cups during the 7th annual World Sport Stacking Association Stack UP! at the Port Orange Regional Library, Thursday, Nov. 15.

said the incentive program is aimed at improving the condition of the streetscape along A1A. I t s going to be an additional enhancement to the city when this is all finalized, he said. In other business, council members approved an ordinance updating the citys land development code to include fees for false alarm r esponse. City code defines a false alarm as an alarm r esponded to by the citys public safety department that was activated through inadvertence, neglect, accident, unannounced testing, and faulty installation or maintenance. A ccording to city documents, there would be no charge for the first three false alarms in a calendar y ear, while the fourth would r esult in a fine of $50, each false alarm after the fourth carries a fine of $100, and failure to appear and reset the alarm within one hour of being notified of the alarm sounding is $20. Mr. Booker said his staff would actively promote the ordinance to inform residents of the new fees. W e re going to be lenient at first coming in, Mr. B ooker said.

Fi ve judges presided over the ceremony, each taking a turn in the proceedings. W e are binding families together in a relationship that will last forever, said J udge Leah Case. The other judges were Chief Judge W illiam A. Parsons, James Clayton, David Walsh and Thomas Portuallo. In presenting a proclamation, Volusia County Councilman Josh Wagner noted 34 adoptions took place in the tri-county area of Volusia, Flagler and Putnam, but there are still 42 children in need of adoptive homes. All you have to do is love them, said Col. David Abr amowitz, director of the Nor theast Region of the DCF. Dur ing the ceremony, the families stepped to the front one at a time where they we re introduced by their o wn attorney to the judge who would preside over their individual case.

Do wn in New Smyrna B each, when that boat was going to be towed in there, everybody thought that was the second coming, what a wonderful, wonderful thing it would be for the riverfront to have a boat down there, yet we have the opposite mentality up here, Mr. Pohlmann said. I support (the riverboat r estaurant). I think its something that would be a good starting point. B ut Councilman Bob Ford, the lone opponent of the Riverwalk project, considered Mr. LaCours proposal a step backwards. He opposes the ri verboat restaurant and the development of temporary parking spaces on a crucial part of the riverfront land known as the point. I f were going to call that a park and put parking and priv ate development in the middle of it and deny our residents increased vista views and all the rest, I dont think we r e doing the right thing, Mr. Ford said.

Actually the roots of the big automobile celebration began back in 1903 when the very first race was held on the beach at Ormond. That one mile drag r ace between the Olds Pirate and the Winton Bullet would forever brand this area as a Mecca of speed. In the entire world there are but a few cities whose name is synonymous with auto r acing. Daytona Beach certainly ranks near the top. Each year on Thanksgiving we get to enjoy the results of that fame. I will be in Fortunato Park in Ormond Beach on S aturday at the Birthplace of S peed Show with my group, the Motor Racing Heritage Association. We are hoping to sell the remainder of our bricks from the original Ormond Garage in order to build our replica of that famous facility. Back in 1976, I watched the original garage burn down on East Granada Boulevard. Built in 1904 by Henry Flagler, it was the first facility in the world built to house and repair r ace cars. To this day it is re vered by fans of the automobile. The MRHA is now nearing completion of a long quest to build a small version of the garage in The Birthplace Of Speed Park on the dunes ov erlooking the original start line of those ancient r aces. Our garage will house the two replica race car monuments that were bought by the city for the 2003 Centennial of Racing. When it is completed, the MRHA will make a gift of it to the City Of Ormond B each. We began this project back in 2009 so it has been a long and difficult haul but now the end is in sight. With y our help, this weekend can put us over the top. If you know someone in your family who might like to o wn a rare piece of racing history, come and see me in the park from 10 a.m. until 3 p .m. on Saturday. The bricks are suitably aged and a bit banged up and come with a certificate of authenticity for atax-deductible donation of $200.A brick would make a fine Christmas gift for anyone who is a fan of r acing, carsor history.For those of you who wish to get a personalized copy of my fishing book, they will also be for sale by the Ormond B each Historical Society. The OBHS also sells great Bir thplace of Speed caps, Tshirts and books. F olks, this is a great way to spend your Saturday after the holiday. Pack up a couple turkey sandwiches and come on out to enjoy the fine cars in a beautiful setting along the Halifax River. The car show and parade in Ormond Beach are free to spectators.Stop by our table and talk a little history with us (or fishing) and help us finish our very worthwhile project.

M ost times, when an adolescent presents the sheriffs office with obstacles, achievement awards do not follow. This is not one of those times. F ourteen-year-old Kaj Eckhardt, a member of Boy Scout Tr oop 804, began the detailed process of earning his Eagle Scout ranking exactly one y ear ago. After discovering the Volusia County Sheriffs Office K-9 training field needed some sprucing up, Kaj decided to make that his community project. The purpose of the Eagle Scout project is to give the scout an opportunity to plan, develop and give leadership to others. Eagle Scout projects are evaluated on the benefit to the organization being served and on the leadership provided by the candidate. There must also be evidence of organized planning and development, according to scoutingmagazine.org. J immy Davis is the assistant scoutmaster helping with Ka j s project. H is role? Whatever the scoutmaster tells me to do, he said. Mr. Davis said he came on board to help Kaj a couple of months ago. The troop met at my wifes church, so I got drafted. Its only an hour a week. Thats the running joke in Boy Scouts, only an hour a week, he said. The man-hours on Kajs project are actually 542 and counting according to Kajs grandfather, Sam Eckhardt, who is a scoutmaster and the committee chairman for Tro op 804. Ka j s dad, Troy Eckhardt, also a scoutmaster, and Kajs 12-year-old brother, Japheth E ckhardt, a Boy Scout First Class, are members of the large crew helping Kaj with the endeavor. W e ve had a lot of people, a lot of family members who are police, Japheth said. K ajs always been interested in the K-9 Unit and we heard this needed to be done. J apheth nodded when asked if its been a lot of work. Y eah, but its enjoyable, he said. K aj appears to think a lot more than he speaks. Hes polite, articulate, focused very focused and maybe a little shy. H olding his project notebook close to his chest and glancing around at the newly r estored obstacles on the course, he looked serious. He said the project turned out to be a little more difficult than he expected, but not much. I thought helping the K-9 U nit would be cool, he said. I think its pretty important. K aj said the completed project will have to be granted final approval by the Adv ancement Committee B oard of Review and the N ational Council of the Boy Scouts of America before hell obtain the coveted Eagle Scout ranking and badge. He and his dad both hope that will happen before the end of this year. This is the 100th year anniversary of the Eagle Scout, Mr. Troy Eckhardt said. Thats why were really trying to get it this year. Sgt. David MacDonald has been in charge of the Volusia C ounty Sheriffs Office K-9 U nit for two years. He said hes worked with Kaj and his crew for the better part of this year. The little guy has done a heck of a job for us, he said. H e s a good kid. He said Kaj is definitely making a difference for the community with this project. H e s done everything from planning and measuring, ov erseeing the work done by the others, to final restoration of our obstacles all at no cost to us, Sgt. MacDonald said. S tar Scout Sam Brunnig, 15, is a dedicated member of Kajs crew. Y ou always help the person ahead of you so when you become (ready for) Eagle Scout people will help you get y our project done, he said. An independent research study, Merit Beyond the B adge conducted by Baylor U niversity, demonstrated the significant, positive impact Eagle Scouts have on society every day. The study found that Eagle Scouts are more likely than men who have never been in Scouting to have higher levels of planning and preparation skills; be goal-oriented, and network with others; be in a leadership position at their place of employment or within their local community. The study showed they r eport having closer relationships with family and friends; volunteer for religious and nonreligious organizations; donate money to charitable groups; and work with others to improve their neighborhoods. S ince it was first awarded in 1912, more than 2 million y oung men have achieved scoutings highest rank, according to the Boy Scouts of America website. Ka j s dad said the Eagle Scout project is not permitted to be something that benefits an individual or a family, that it must be outside the Scouts sphere of influence, a church sometimes the church where a troop meets or something to benefit the community at large. In addition to general planning, designing and organizing, the future Eagle Scout is r esponsible for the projects fundraising. In Ka j s case, there was plenty of legwork there, too. S ome of it he worked for doing lawn care for people, household maintenance and that kind of thing, Mr. Eckhardt said. Some of it was solicited donations from business owners. Part of it was donations from Lowes and from All Star Lumber in Ormond Beach. Mr. Eckhardt said Kaj also got a matching grant from the Dr Phillips Foundation in Orlando. The projects total costs exceeded $2,500 he said. Mr. Davis said the rankings leading up to Eagle are Scout, T ender Foot, Scout Second Class, Scout First Class, Star and Life. The majority of boys drop out when they hit Life. Thats when it gets tough, he said. F riday, November 23, 2012 Hometown News A4Po rt Orange/Ponce Inlet So.

P lease hire someone to monitor the ear-splitting decibels in the new theatre. In response to: Dont go Bob I am so happy someone said dont go Bob Garcia. I think the people who represent DeBary need to apologize to the taxpayers. They acted like a bunch of spoiled brats and should apologize to the citizens of DeBary.We need you, JimmyFor mer president Jimmy Carter goes to third world countries to monitor their elections. I think it is time we admit we need his assistance here in Florida with our voting fiasco. Dining with dogs in Ormond BeachS ome restaurants have been allowing dogs on their patio for some time without it being legal. I have filed four complaints with the Florida Health Department against Einsteins at Nova Road and Granada Boulevard for allowing dogs on their patio. I have even been taunted by customers after complaining to the manager and a corporate office. It has been illegal for dogs to be at restaurants, except for service dogs for a long time. Please take the time to read the r equirements of the Dixie Cup Clary Local Control Act, which the city of Ormond Beach will now be responsible for. Pr ior to making complaints I saw a couple with a dog at E insteins throw up all over the dining area. The owner went inside and grabbed napkins, after petting the dogs and having vomit on her hands. Another time a dog urinated and then defecated under the table. Not a pretty sight. Another consideration is what happens if a dog bites a child or person while they are walking into the restaurants or dining nearby. Also some people may be allergic to dogs. If they are allergic, why should they have to go to restaur ants that prevent dogs from being there? The city staff has the power to prevent something like the above happening. P lease say no to doggie dining. My personal view is to not allow dining with dogs in Ormond Beach. Although I am not a resident of the city of Ormond Beach, I live on the borderline and dine frequently at most Ormond Beach restaurants.T oo confusingI am surprised Rants & Raves has not been flooded with r ants about that crazy Florida ballot. I have never seen such gobledy-gook writing in my life as those constitutional amendments. It seemed to me they were written purposely to confuse. I am glad Florida didnt get the chance to be the confuser and muddle the election results temporarily or permanently. Get it together Florida. You are looking very juvenile.We need a dog beachAre dogs allowed on the beach in Ormond Beach? No. Dogs are only permitted on Jacksonville Beach and Neptune Beach before 9 a.m. or after 5 p.m. Dogs must be on a leash and have a current rabies tag. Dog owners must clean up after their dogs. Dogs are allowed anytime on Atlantic B each, but must also be on a leash no more than 12 feet long This is the provision that allows dogs on the beach in J acksonville. Many in Ormond-by-the-Sea would like to pursue a similar policy as aforementioned, with limited hours for our dogs on the beach. Dogs love the beach, dog o wners love to see their dogs frolic on the beach. It is great exercise for both dogs and humans and a great way to connect with your neighbors. Those that oppose dogs on the beach are often those that do not like pets or fear them. I have never seen a problem with dogs on the beach in Flagler Beach just north of Ormond Beach or further north in Jacksonville. We need to have our own dog beach. Recycle?We are told all the time to save paper. Yet everyday I r eceive tons of junk mail in my box. Recycle you say? I have made two calls for the past three weeks trying to get a bin delivered. Spoke to the same person who assured me twice I would receive it to no avail. I use my electricity to shred, w ear and tear on my shredder, bag it in plastic. And into our landfills it goes. I have tried returning junk mail to senders and was told by the mail deliverer that it just gets thrown away at the post office and I might as well do it myself. Go figure.Senior ServicesIt has come to my attention that some of our senior citiz ens who rely on service transportation to go to doctor appointments are left to sit and wait for a return ride. While these appointments can be lengthy, after the appointments are over they are left waiting sometimes three or four hours for their transportation to return and bring them home. This just sounds so unreasonable to me and most of these people are unable to walk a long distance and need this transportation to go from one place to another. I am not sure where the problem lies, but someone needs to look into it. I wouldnt want to be in that position at all and neither would most people. So why would we subject the most vulnerable to be stranded for any length of time. I am not sure what the standard procedure is to call the transportation office and tell them the patient is ready to go or if they just have to wait for the transportation company to show up to pick them up. There is an error of ways somewhere in their procedures. I know that some of the buses have to go from one town to the next to drop off and pick up, but it is impossible to go from Orange City to Deltona and then to D aytona Beach in 45 minutes of time. So if someone knows the correct answer I think our senior citizens have the right to be treated with the same respect we treat others. LettersThanks for nothingI wish to thank Gov. Rick Scott and Ed Connor of the V olusia Tax Reform movement for dealing a deadly onetwo blow to the children of our county. The governor has slashed state aid to our schools to the bone while finding $3 billion in tax breaks for his friends in the business community. Ed C onnor and his group believe people cannot afford to pay an additional $65 a year to prevent the draconian budget cuts that will have to be instituted to an already decimated school board budget. These two individuals will be responsible for lowering the quality of education our children will receive in the public school system. I think all Volusia County school children should send a note thanking Gov. Scott and Mr. Connor for all they have done to advance their careers in the hotel industry. The note should thank these two men for preparing our children for careers as chamber maids and pool towel boys. Ja mes M.Doumas Po rt Or angeThanks for the explanationI just wanted to add to the thank-yous you are probably r eceiving regarding the explanation of the amendments. It was so refreshing to witness a publication actually reporting news without a political slant of their own. Keep up the excellent work! This is just one more reason why I enjoy looking in my driveway for the H ometown News each w eek. S teve Braukhoff DeBary The annual enrollment period for M edicare Advantage plans and standalone drug plans is here. Y ou can enroll or make a change through Dec. 7. Any change you make would take effect on Jan. 1. Unless you qualify for a special enrollment period during the year or are eligible for Medicaid or the Extra Help program, this is the only time you can change your coverage for 2013. The Florida Department of Elder Affairs Serving Health Insurance Needs of Elders or SHINE program provides free, unbiased counseling and information for individuals eligible for Medicare, their families and caregivers. SHINE counselors are trained to assist you in understanding your options so that you can make informed decisions. When you meet with a SHINE counselor by phone or in person, they will begin by asking you about your income to determine whether or not you might be eligible for Extra Help, which helps r educe the cost of your prescriptions, or a Medicaid program. If you are looking for a drug plan, we will ask you to provide a list of all the prescriptions you take, as well as the dosage and the frequency for each medication. If you are searching for the best M edicare Advantage plan, there are some questions you can ask in advance that will help to narrow your choices in finding a plan that fits best: Will the plan allow you to continue using your present doctors? If you had to go to the hospital, would your hospital of choice be included in the plans network? Will you need a referral from your primary care doctor to see a specialist? Do you desire to have coverage when traveling? Does the plan offer extra benefits like vision, dental, hearing aids, and gym membership? Are the drugs you presently take part of the plans formulary and what will they cost? What is the plans monthly premium, as well as co-payments for doctor visits, etc.? C omparing the different plans using the answers to these questions will help y ou arrive at the best choice for you. A SHINE counselor can help you find available plans in your area and can assist you with any questions. Once your decision has been made, y ou will have one opportunity in 2013 to disenroll from your MA plan during the annual disenrollment period. The disenrollment period runs from Jan. 1 through Feb. 14. During this period, you will be able to leave the MA plan you chose and return to original Medicare (Part A and Part B). Y ou will also be able to enroll in a standalone prescription drug plan at the same time. The effective date will be the first of the following month. So if you made the changes during January, your effective date for the change will be Feb. 1. You would again be able to enroll in a Medicare Adv antage plan during the next annual enrollment period (Oct. 15-Dec. 7, 2013). A SHINE counselor is waiting to assist you with your choices. The counselor will not make any decisions for you, but will guide y ou through the comparison process so y ou can make an educated choice. C all the Elder Helpline toll-free at (800) 963-5337 to contact a SHINE counselor or to volunteer.

The unemployment rate dropped to 8.4 percent because of a combo of more workers getting jobs and others dropping out of the workforce. Thats down from 8.8 percent in September and 10.4 percent from a year ago. B ut the non-agricultural employment report, based on surveys of employers, shows Volusia is still down 2,100 jobs from last year. B usiness and professional services continues to be the big downer with 1,600 fewer jobs than last year. The only bright spots were manufacturing, up 100 jobs, and leisure and hospitality, up 300 jobs. The Orlando area, on the other hand, is up 21,700 jobs from last year and Jacksonville is up 6,300 jobs. Ev en Brevard County is up 1,800 jobs. Its a real headscratcher as to why Brevard is up, considering all the layoffs at the cape, while Volusia is down. It just makes y ou wonder what is going on out in the labor market. *** It s nice to see the Dollar General Market going into the former Food Lion on the beachside in New Smyrna B each.

Halifax Media and the new owners of the land are asking the city to approve a preliminary plat for the project. *** Dominos Pizza will be moving to a new spot in Deltona. The DeLand-based franchisee obtained a building permit to renovate space at 1675 Providence Blvd. *** W ith lower gasoline prices, its a good guess that the Thanksgiving weekend crowd will be bigger than ever in Volusia County, especially with the ever growing popularity of the Tur key Run at Daytona I nternational Speedway.

Randy Barber/ staff photographer Entrepreneur looks to dryeye treatment for successE ditors note:This is the last article in a series about businesses at the University of Central Florida Business I ncubator. S ignificantly improving the treatment of chronic dry eye probably wont win Dr. Allen T. Jackson the kind of international acclaim that makes him a household name, but if he has his way it could bring jobs to Volusia C ounty. D ry eyes is a glossed-over phenomenon, he said. It seems very simple and is treated very simply. It is a complicated problem and it causes misery to many patients. B ut there are not many lining up to start companies to research, develop and manufacture products to improve treatments for the condition, so Dr. Jackson started Delta Dynamic De velopments back in 2003 with chronic dry eye firmly in mind. Now his company is one of about a dozen upstarts at the University of C entral Floridas Business I ncubator at the Daytona B each International Airport, 601 Innovation Way. I t doesnt get great attention, because dry eye never makes anyone go blind, he said. All of the products on the market address the issue partially. M any know Dr. Jackson from his work at Florida Eye R esearch & Surgical Therapy I nstitute in Daytona Beach. He s been a practicing ophthalmologist since 1996. That year he started practicing at the Darnall Army C ommunity Hospital, Fort H ood, Texas. Mr. Jackson started his commission in 1985, and came to the area in 2006 after retiring from the military. B ut hes not a one-trick pony. In addition to doing r esearch and development for dry-eye treatments, Deltona Dynamic Developments is creating for manufacture other personal health items, such as portable sanitation kits. Dr. J ackson said much of his companys approach is based on what folks can do to take personal responsibility in healthcare, thus greatly reduce their expenses by staying healthy and ease burdens on the often-overtaxed medical system. I think (over-the-counter and prescription dry-eye treatments) might end up being our flagship product, but as the company is evolving its actually changing into a general product kind of situation. It s a natural fit for Dr. J ackson. I have a masters degree in public health and disease prevention, he said. Overall we want to promote health and prevent disease. W ith products that get jobs generated around here. O ur idea is to do everything local, the doctor said. W e actually hope to produce and manufacture everything out of Volusia C ounty. In 2010 the Volusia County Council approved $1.4 million to renovated a 10,000-square-foot facility to house it. Additionally, the county gave the university $750,000 to run it for three years. The business incubator is a place to start a company, Doris Connie Bernal, the business incubators D aytona Beach site manager, said in a previous interview. The entrants have a lot of resources to work with here. They have professionals who help them with a number of areas. Dr Jackson said the incubator has given him much access to very specialized medical-business research help I t provides a lot of r esources, he said. It provides advice from previously successful entrepreneurs and resources of the University of Central Florida. One thing about the incubator, they consider themselves a network. While Im in the D aytona Beach incubator, I can participate in things going on in other incubators. UCF has 10 businessincubator sites ranging throughout Central Florida. It was founded in 1999 and has about 80 current clients. A ccording to its website, the incubators have generated about 1,600 jobs in the area with average salaries of $59,000. Dr Jackson believes Delta D ynamic will add about 25 jobs to Volusia within five years. Dr. Allen Jackson By P atrick McCallisterF or Hometown News Business news grant their holiday wishes.

These majestic plants come in a variety of colors including red, white, pink, magenta, yellow and orange. These plants are a popular commodity at most retail outlets during the holidays and usually will sell out fast. The individual flowers can add a burst of color to your dcor for a week or more, while a single plants blooming cycle can continue for a month or more. Christmas cacti, or schlumbergera russelliana, are not true cacti so they will not tolerate totally dry conditions for long periods of time. These plants are native to Br azil and normally grow up in the trees and thrive on organic materials such as mold and rotting leaves. S ince they enjoy the shade of the tropical forest, they will not tolerate direct sun or dry conditions. These plants can last for many years under the right conditions and with a little TLC. When the plants mature, the leaves tend to form a cascading burst of color that looks great in a hanging basket. You can also easily propagate the plants by taking cuttings and planting them directly in a high quality potting soil that is light in texture. Christmas cacti are fairly easy to grow in an indoor home atmosphere. They have a great ability top withstand cool temperatures and short periods of dry spells. As easy as it is for these plants to grow, it will take a little extra TLC to get the bountiful flowers that are their trademark. One important factor in the flowering process is to start allowing the soil to dry out between watering cycles as winter approaches. It is also very important to place the plants in an area that will have less than 12 hours of natural or artificial light for at least six weeks. Also, it is important to keep the temperature cool during this process. Once y ou have your flowers started, you can resume y our normal watering schedule along with your normal room temperatures. As you can see, with a little TLC and some special care, you can have beautiful flowering Christmas cacti year after y ear without the cost of having to replace your plants every year. If you buy poinsettias for the holidays, one of the most common pest problems you might encounter is the whitefly. If you shake the leaves of the plant and you see little white specs flying around the plant, your poinsettia is infested with whiteflies. Whiteflies are typically very hard to control but with this quick tip, you can avoid dangerous insecticides. You can use a handheld vacuum to get r id of these pests, simply disturb the leaves of the plant (carefully) with one hand while you vacuum the whiteflies away with a sweeping motion around the plant. This process can also be used for other houseplants that might acquire these pests. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

W indows 8 came out a couple days before Halloween and Ive had a lot of calls from people asking me if they should consider upgrading. In the past, whenever M icrosoft released a new operating system, I have always advised people not to jump on the band wagon r ight away but rather stay with their proven operating system for as long as possible (a year or more) to give the folks at M icrosoft enough time to work out all the bugs that get submitted after the new operating system has been r eleased into the wild. S ometimes the transition goes smoothly (as it did with the transition to Windows XP) and sometimes the transition is a disaster (as it was with W indows ME) but in the past, it was always fairly easy to find new machines running the older, more proven operating systems and wait until they got all the bugs fixed on the new system before making a change. This strategy helped many people avoid the Windows Vista fiasco several years ago and instead transition straight into the more stable W indows 7. W ell here we are just a couple weeks after the release of W indows 8 and Im afraid the strategy of waiting a goodly amount of time for them to prove the new system in the r eal world just might be limited this time around. Y ou see, just a few days after the release of Windows 8 I ventured down to the local big-box office supply store to have a look and was really surprised to find only Windows 8 machines on the floor! I asked the sales guy if they still had any Windows 7 machines. He brought me over to a rack with a half a dozen tags or so that y ou could bring to the cashier and they would get one of the re maining Windows 7 machines from the back but was told they have none on the floor. And when the ones they have in the back were gone that was it. No more W indows 7 machines would be available from that big box store. This time around Im not so sure how long the older, proven Windows 7 operating systems are going to be available on new machines. So what exactly is wrong with Windows 8? Well, thats the real question now isnt it? U ntil the new system has had some time in the real world to shake out the bugs we really dont know what, if anything, is wrong with it. It may be the most stable system yet but one thing that is obvious at a glance is that Windows 8 is the most radical operating system change since it went from W indows 3.1 to Windows 95. The biggest, most glaring change is that with Windows 8, Microsoft has seen fit to do away with the Windows start button (the button at the lower left corner of the desktop that first came out with W indows 95) and replace it with a new-fangled start screen that in no way resembles the start menu that weve been using for almost 20 y ears! Last week I answered my first call on a Windows 8 machine and Ill be honest, I wasnt prepared at all for what I encountered. I spent a considerable amount of time just looking around trying to find the familiar features, tools and controls that weve come to expect in Windows and found that (thankfully) most of the tools and features are still there, its finding them thats the problem. After I successfully completed that call I did something Id advised against oh so many times and went out and bought a machine with Windows 8 just so I would have a system to become familiar with. The You Tube videos just we re n t going to cut it this time around. Im happy to say that I can indeed support the new system. When people call for support I know how to walk them through getting connected to me quickly and thats 90 percent of the battle. Once Im connected I can help people learn the new system, find what they are looking for and get their problems solved. And so far so good, aside from the missing start button the system seems lightning fast and pretty stable. I just hope no serious gotchas pop up this early in the game.

On a Monday evening, I r eceived a call from C aptain Leo Hiles of E dgewater. Leo had spent the day fishing and had really nailed em. Thats all I had to hear to be standing on his dock T uesday morning before the sun came up. I knew from the photos that Leo had limited out on trout and brought in his one legal red, so my anticipation level was soaring. We had decided to only fish lures so we could try out some of the new offerings from The Grandslam Bait Co. On the day before, the good C aptain said the trout were so thick they would eat most anything that hit the water. When Leo eased the Blue G host into one of the same coves that he had worked the day before it was still very early, so we both picked up our rods baited with top water. The tide was very high, but sure enough we could see a school of maybe five nice reds pushing water as they cruised back and forth. Leo threw his old favorite bone colored Zara S pook but I tried out a new lure from the Hall Co. of Orlando. It didnt take long until we could see this was not going to be easy. The fish were not interested. Oh, they would r oll up next to the lures and even take a half-hearted hit on occasion, but were just not in the feeding mode. I began to think about that old fishing saw you should have been here yesterday. It seemed to apply. Leo did manage to get one somewhat interested, but after a nice strike that missed, a small trout rushed in and took the bait. We we re not happy to watch the big red swim away as the trout came to the boat. After that we moved on to the trout hole from the previous day and that, too, was dead. Now, we knew we were going to have to work to make this trip pan out. Whenever I have to get down to business I go to my old standby the chartreuse shrimp tail and Leo tied on a paddle tail swimmer, both Grandslam products. We began catching a few 14-inch trout and Leo had a couple reds of about the same length, but fishing for keepers was tough. Working along a bank we both know very well I finally had a hookup with a nice fish. It hit so hard I immediately yelled r edfish, but pretty quickly it became apparent I had a big trout. Leo reeled in and grabbed up the landing net as I worked the fish to the boat. That may have happened a little too quickly for the big gator trout was still gr een when it saw the boat. As it made the u-turn for another run the jig pulled out. A disappointment for sure on a slow day, but still pretty good fun. The trout had to have been between five and six pounds and around 24 inches long. A beautiful fish, it was shaded golden from the stained water. Of course, the jig it ate was the Grandslam version of my chartreuse tail that they now call Dan Smith Special E dition. As the morning continued we picked up a steady take of undersized trout and reds, but the big fish just would not bite. By trips end we had caught 16 trout and four reds and released them all. That was not the day that either of us envisioned, but it was a lot of fun. Sharing a boat with Capt. Leo is always a trip in itself.

F riday, November 23, 2012 Hometown News B8Po rt Orange/Ponce Inlet So. Daytona/Daytona Beach Shores This time of year many of us travel to see family and friends, or just get away from said family and friends. If yo u re heading somewhere that doesnt have snow on the ground, there may be a chance that yo u re taking your clubs. After all, whats a holiday without a round or three of golf? There is also the chance that you may leave the sticks at home and rent a set at the course. This is always a good idea if the thought of you playing golf while with the family on a holiday trip isnt likely to be met with unbridled enthusiasm by the family. The last time I went to visit family and rented a set, I was a little less than excited by what I saw in the bag. While I wasnt expecting a $1,000 set of rental clubs, I was hoping for something a little better than I what I wound up with. My set consisted of a pretty good driver, a model from about a half-decade ago. The fairway woods we re one of the first steel headed woods of their kind. The grips must have been original as they were as hard as my head and slick as ice. The irons were a mixed-match of three or four different brands and two of the wedges were the same loft. The putter came from a miniature golf course. You know, the ones with the plastic heads. Only five or six of the clubs in this set had grips that I could actually hold onto. I should have suspected something was up when the course only charged me $5 to rent them. S omewhere on the front nine I decided that no matter how hard it was, the next time I traveled and intended to play golf, my trusty sticks were coming with me. A friend of mine who listened to my rant about the clubs I rented had a simple solution. If youre driving, take all the clubs out of your bag and place them in the trunk or back of the van. If necessary, bring only half the set. I could have easily found a spot for my driver, putter, a w edge, a hybrid and four irons. I shook my head at how stupid I was for not thinking of that at the time. If you actually have the r oom, packing your clubs can be a breeze. Just use a lot of common sense and think light, especially when yo u re flying to your destination. T ake as light a golf bag as possible. Many seasoned golf travelers have a light carry bag, one that fits easily into their travel bag. M ake sure that the travel bag is easily identifiable. When shopping for a travel cover, look for one that has r oom for that extra long driver, your shoes, a sweater or a jacket and maybe even a change of clothes. The airlines will no longer allow you to lock y our checked bags, so take a thorough inventory of whats in the bag. T ake your golf balls out of your bag and pack them in your suitcase. This saves a tremendous amount of w eight. To trim even more, leave the balls at home and buy them when you get to the course. To prevent your clubs from clanking and scratching, wrap your towels around the heads and put the rain cover on. To help protect that extra-long driver, cut a broom handle down to about two inches longer than your driver and place it in the golf bag. This puts any pressure on the broom handle and not your precious clubs. Cut a hole in a tennis ball and use it to cover the end so that the handle wont rip through the bag. While waiting for your luggage in the baggage claim area, find out where the oversized bags are unloaded. Bags that are too big for the carousels are often brought out separ ately and staged in a different area. If yo u re renting a car, look around for the rental counters when you get to the baggage claim area. M ost travelers retrieve their luggage and then head for the rental car counters, which tend to get busy all at once. Its a good idea to consider getting y our car first. Chances are the line will be shorter and its a lot better than watching strange luggage go around and around and around. Whatever you do when traveling, be sure to call the course first if you are depending on them for clubs to play your round with. Golf is difficult enough without having to use equipment thats impossible to play with.

4November 2012GIFT GUIDE East VOLUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS W ith so much turmoil in the world caused by everything from natural disasters to war, it may seem difficult to get into the holiday spirit. B ut dont let your holidays get high jacked by forces beyond your control, its time to take a step back and look around you for all you have. As we enjoy our Thanksgiving dinners, try to search your mind for what you can be thankful. Im thankful for the many blessings I have received this year and look forward to a wonderful 2013. I hope your family has been as fortunate. In this guide, we try to provide tips on how to make your holiday shopping experience a successful one, but also want you to be safe. We also hope y ou can help those less fortunate. M any people in the Northeast especially need assistance, so the Red Cross is a good organization to keep in mind for your holiday donations. O ur soldiers stationed across the globe also need to be kept in mind. Getting down to the gift buying, yo u ll see that tech gifts are as big as ever, but there also is some non-tech stuff that will bring just as much joy. Citrus has always been a big item and this year is no different. But there is a lot of food items produced in this area with a special holiday theme. As always there are plenty of hot toys on the shelves and weve found out the top ones this year. While the malls and the big, open air shopping centers always attract attention, dont forget the many small, local businesses that also can provide unique gifts for your loved ones. This area has a large enough market that it has attracted nearly every top retailer in the nation, but sometimes it can be something special from a locally owned business that will really stand out. F or your tree, you may want to keep in mind an adventure to a Florida tree farm. There are some within a short drive and they always provide excitement for kids and kids at heart. Weve also provided some tips on how to find that perfect tree. Of course, there also are the many holiday events in the area, from ballet to concerts to parades to plays. P eabody and Flagler auditoriums have the big shows, but there also are some great performances to be found at smaller venues in New Smyrna B each, Ormond Beach and Port Orange, as well as area churches. Another great family outing is ice skating and you can take the family to the Bandshell in Daytona Beach or the ice rink in South Daytona. We probably wont have a white Christmas in Volusia County again this year. But with so much to do this holiday season, you should take advantage of living in a place where y ou dont get quite as frosty enjoying the great outdoors. 2012 Gift Guide Introduction: Dont let your holidays get high jacked CECIL G.

7GIFT GUIDE East VOLUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2012 The Watson have been growing Christmas trees since 1985. Now, they plant about 1,000 Red Cedar and Leyland Cypress on about 5 acres. O ur trees range anywhere from four to 10 feet, but we are running short on big trees this year, Mr. Watson said. They have a lot of six to seven footers, too. He r ecalls one customer who wanted a tree tall enough to go next to her 33-foot spiral staircase. Tr ees grown at the farm are $5 a foot, Mr. Watson said, and the ones we bring in from North Carolina are $8 a foot. C ustomers dont need to bring anything with them, Mr. Watson said. They choose their own tree, but we cut it and load it on the vehicle, preferable a truck. Thats all there is to it. In general, artificial trees are less messy and easier to put up than real trees, according to the University of F lorida Extension Service, which has an office in DeLand. They can also be healthier for your family, since some children may be allergic to real trees. B ut if you want a real tree, Mr. Watson said a Leyland Cypress is better for those with allergies. Choosing your own tree at a farm can be a memorable family adventure out in the country. Mr. Watsons farm has refreshments, wreaths, crafts and restrooms. But always call before you go to make sure the farm is open. W atsons operates from Nov. 23 to De c. 23. Artificial trees can be higher-priced than real trees, but they can also be r eused. They come in various sizes and styles, many with lights built into the tree. Whether you buy a real or artificial tree, know the size and height of the area where you want to put the tree.T reesF rom page 6 See TREES, 8 Randy Barber/staff photographerJim Watson of Oak Hill checks on his Leyland cypress trees at Watsons Cedar GroveU-Choose-We Cut, Tuesday, Nov. 6.

8November 2012GIFT GUIDE East VOLUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS Y ou dont want to buy a tree thats too big for your house. R eal trees can be purchased at stores, Christmas tree lots or pick you own at a farm, such as Watsons. U nfortunately most artificial trees end up in landfills when they go out of style or become worn. R eal cut trees can be recycled or used in compost piles. Theres nothing like going directly to the farm and cutting down your own tree. You wont get a tree any fresher and you can pick just the right tree. But theres more to it than that. Mr. Watson also has fresh cut trees from a small farm in Linville Falls, N.C. I make several trips and select the trees. When I get home, I keep them in the shade and watered, he said. The Fraser firs are all No.1 grade trees. They will be available Nov. 23, he said. He also brings back wreaths that are available for $20. When buying a cut tree, choose one that has a strong scent and looks fresh and green. Thump the trunk on the ground to shake off any loose needles. If the tree loses a lot of needles, you may want to choose a different one. K eep your tree fresh, green and healthy by making a fresh cut on the stem at least one forth inch or more above the original cut, according to the Florida Christmas Tree Association website. This will cut off the pitch that has formed and will enable the tree to take up water. After you have made the cut, immediately place your tree in a sturdy stand that will hold at least one quart of water for each inch diameter of the stem. Check the water supply regularly. Do not add anything to the water. Research has shown that plain water will keep your tree fresh. If the water supply runs out, a seal will form on the cut surface of the tree trunk, which will prevent the tree from taking up water. To get ready for future years, in February, we plant from 750 to 1,000 trees, Mr. Watson said. Tr ees take 4 to 6 years to grow 6 to 8 feet tall. He also said fresh trees are more fire resistant. W e plan to operate the Christmas tree farm as long as we can, said Mr. Watson. W atsons Cedar Grove U-choose & cut, 180 Cedar Grove, Oak Hill, is just north of the Brevard/Volusia C ounty line.

Electronic gadgets are always near the top of everyones wish list during the holiday season and that looks to be true this year more than ever for one big reason the tablet wars. Once the domain of just one company, Apple, there are now more tablet choices than you can probably count in every price range imaginable, which is good news for consumers. With so many choices, however, comes lots of confusion. So lets try to sort it all out. The top pick for many folks will be the Apple iPad. It is the most expensive, but there are more affordable choices this year thanks to the introduction of the new iPad Mini, which starts at $329. Thats a lot more than most competitors, but the lowest price ever for an Apple tablet. As the name implies, the mini has a smaller screen (7.9 inches versus 9.5 on the r egular iPad), but also a slower processor and a lower resolution screen. This is a good choice if you absolutely must have an Apple product and dont want to spend the big bucks for a regular, latest generation iPad, which starts at $499. The other option is the older $399 iPad2, which has a full size screen, but, like the mini, a slower processor and lower r es screen. All prices rise quickly if y ou add features like more memory (16GB is the starting point. Add $100 for a 32GB model and $200 for 64GB) or a cellular connection (an extra $129). Most folks can get by with the base level wi-fi versions. Choose an Apple tablet if cost is not a concern and/ or you are already ensconced in and happy with the A pple iTunes ecosystem. (This means y ou already own an iPhone, iPod or M ac computer.) F or everyone else, there are arguably better choices that are much less expensive. Most of these tablets are built around the competing Android operating system developed by G oogle. But it may not always appear that way because some tablets have been customized to look different. Amazons Kindle Fire, the second most popular tablet model behind the iPad, is the most notable example. There are lots of new choices in the K indle Fire lineup this year. An updated version of the original Fire with a 7-inch screen is the bargain of the shopping season at $159. Theres also a new HD version with a faster processor, higher res screen, improved speakers and Wi-Fi capabilities for $199. The screen is a bit smaller than the iPad Minis but the r esolution and internal specs are better, for $130 less. Like the Mini, the K indle Fire HD starts with 16GB of memory but the upgrade to 32GB only cost $50, not $99. F or those looking for a bigger tablet, Amazon will soon begin selling a Kindle Fire HD with an 8.9-inch screen for $299, an excellent deal for a tablet of this size. It was scheduled to be r eleased Nov. 20. The downside to the Kindle Fire is the customized operating system it uses locks you into Amazons ecosystem and you do not have full access to the broader Android universe of apps or the latest Android operating system. However, access to Amazons large library of books, music and movies is probably a bit easier on its o wn products. If you dont care about that and want more of a pure Android tablet,14November 2012GIFT GUIDE East VOLUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS Shopping guide for electronic gadgetsBy T ony BriggsF or Hometown News See ELECTRONICS15

15GIFT GUIDE East VOLUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2012 the best bargain is probably Googles N exus 7, which goes for $199. Sa msung, Toshiba, Asus, Lenovo and others sell Android tablets with screen sizes ranging from 7 to more than 10 inches, with prices falling inbetween the Google/Amazon price point and the top of the line iPads. Any would be a good choice, if the price is right (look for big markdowns during the holiday shopping season) and you are satisfied with the Android OS. In my testing, I have found A pples iOS is smoother and less crash prone than Androids. Apples apps also tend to be better designed and more of them have been customized for the tablets larger screen. M ost Android apps were designed for the smaller screens on smartphones and can be ugly on a tablet. As if these choices werent enough, there will be one more big player in the tablet arena this year M icrosoft. Its new Windows 8 operating system was designed to work best on tablet touch screens and there will be lots of Windows 8 tablets on store shelves this year. However, its hard to r ecommend them for a couple of reasons: 1. They are expensive, at least as expensive as iPads. 2. Its a new operating system, which means there will be a learning curve. Gi ven the uncertain future of Windows 8 tablets, the safe course is to steer clear of them this year. Ditto for the raft of no name tablets out there, some selling for very low price points. M any have inferior touch screens, substandard electronics and questionable operating systems. Enough about tablets. What else is hot this year? N intendo Wii U: The latest incarnation of the wildly popular Wii video game console was set to go on sale Nov. 18 and looks to be a big seller, if for no other reason than its new. S tarting at $299, the new Wii will feature more advanced electronics for better high definition gaming, and a new GamePad with built in touch screen and face camera. Like the competing Xbox and Playstation, WiiU has also been redesigned to serve as a media center that can control your TV and display streaming video content from Hulu and Amazon S martphones: Apples popular new iPhone 5 is expected to be on a lot of wish lists this year. It features a larger screen, better camera, 4G and improved performance. But it also has come under fire for a new mapping app that is full of errors and lacks a lot of detail contained in the older Google Maps app, which was dropped. Other popular smartphone choices in the Android universe include the Samsung Galaxy Note, with its massive 5.3-inch OLED screen, the Galaxy SIII and the super thin Motorola Razr. HDTV: There isnt much new here on the technology front, but prices continue to plummet. Think 32-inch models for $250 or less, 50-inchers for less than $500 and 60-inchers for less than $1,000. These are basic models (usually plasma) and prices rise dramatically with features like 3D, LED backlighting and built-in smart TV functionality. If size really does matter, and cost is no object, go for one of the massive new 90-inch models, which retail for about $10,000. D ual-band wireless routers: With everybody streaming Internet video these days, you probably need as much bandwidth as you can get in y our house. Consider upgrading to a dual-band router, which can transmit on the old 2.4Ghz frequency (used on older A, B and G devices) as well as the 5GHz frequency used by newer devices that support the wireless N standard. Cisco (Linksys), D-Link, N etgear and Belkin are well known manufacturers. Expect to pay between $75 and $200.

16November 2012GIFT GUIDE East VOLUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS The holidays are a festive time of y ear, but they can also prove stressful for the millions of people who travel to visit friends and family or use time off during the holidays to go on vacation. Because so many people travel during the holidays, airports are more crowded than usual and the nations r oadways often experience heavy traffic, especially on the days immediately before and after a holiday. There are certain dos and donts that can make holiday travel much easier. DO plan ahead. Leaving holiday travel plans until the last minute is a r ecipe for disaster. Some air travelers feel its more affordable to book flights in the weeks leading up to the holidays rather than months in advance. While its possible to find last minute airline deals, its very possible such deals will put travelers on standby. Thats potentially disastrous during a travel season that has frequent flight delays or cancellations due to inclement weather. Book travel plans as early as possible to avoid the hassles of last minute bookings. DONT blame airport staff if things go awry. The holiday season can be stressful for those who have to travel, but its exceedingly stressful for the men and women who work in the travel industry. Airline employees, particularly those who work at ticket counters, are too often treated poorly by travelers who need someone to blame for flight delays and cancellations. The same goes for the people who work at bus or train stations. R egardless of how inconvenient interr upted travel plans can be, its never the fault of the person working at the airport. Its often a result of inclement w eather, which is something no one can control. DO insure your trip. As mentioned above, flight delays and cancellations are common during the holiday season. Heavy snowfall can wreak havoc on travel plans, even for those people who live in relatively temperate climates. Travelers traveling to or from r egions where heavy snowfall is a possibility should always protect themselves against flight cancellations or delays by insuring their trips. Insurance is often inexpensive and can protect travelers if their flight plans go awry. DONT try to make up for lost time. While theres little air travelers can do to make up for lost time, those traveling by automobile often try to make up for lost time by driving aggressively. Nothing could be more dangerous, as the roads are often ov ercrowded and driving conditions during the holidays are rarely ideal. Ev en if a traffic jam or other delay makes it impossible to stick to your travel schedule, dont risk disaster with aggressive driving. Instead, call y our destination and explain you will be a little late because of delays on the r oadway. No matter where you are going, be it a hotel or to a friend or family members house, they will understand the situation and they will certainly prefer you get there safe and sound. DO be an early bird. The early bird gets the worm, and when it comes to holiday travel, the early bird can also significantly reduce the stress of traveling. If traveling by air, get to the airport extra early. This way you wont have to fret when the lines at baggage check or security checkpoints are long. If traveling via automobile, get up early and hit the road before most drivers are even out of bed.

17GIFT GUIDE East VOLUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2012 Gift wrapping tricks and tips The holidays are here and that means shoppers have started to stockpile gifts for those they love. Once the shopping rush is over, the time to wrap all of those great finds and treasures has come. Although some people are giftwrap gurus, there are many others who feel that their wrapping skills are lacking. Regardless, anyone can create delightful wrapped gifts with a little know-how.P repareThe first step to wrapping is to have all of the supplies in one place. There are some people who have actually dedicated small rooms as gift-wrap stations. While you dont have to go this far, find a large table and keep your tape, tags, paper, ribbon, scissor, pen, and other accessories nearby. Also, sort out the gifts according to recipient and have any gift r eceipts handy to wrap up with the gift. Wr ap at a time when there are no distractions and you can devote y our attention to the task at hand, like after children have gone to bed or during the day when no one is home.P aper or bags?When purchasing wrapping paper, it may be tempting to skimp on the quality of the paper to save money. However, a thicker, higher quality paper will make wrapping go more smoothly. Thats because it will be less likely to tear on boxes or when youre rolling out and cutting it. Thicker paper means youll also be able to achieve more intricate folds and better creasing around boxes. It also may be more forgivable around oddly shaped items. G ift bags are the go-to wrapping medium when youre short on time or have items that are not easily wrapped with paper. Because they come in a variety of sizes and even giant plastic bags to contain large gifts they are often more convenient.Other tipsThere are different tips that can help with wrapping. Buy neutral-patterned wrapping paper that coordinates with other papers. This way if you run out of one type of paper you can stagger other pieces and make a collage of papers so theres no waste. Use ribbon to dress up a gift and direct the eye away from any imperfections. Keep a stack of paper scraps and use it instead of tissue paper to fill in gift bags. Keep scissors sharp for clean cuts. Pack smaller items or oddly shaped things into a different container that is easier to wrap. Roll up clothing and place into a paper towel tube to turn the wrapping into a candy cane shaped gift. Pr actice often makes perfect when it comes to wrapping gifts. H aving the right paper, a few decor ative supplies and some patience can ensure that gifts look festive this year.

18November 2012GIFT GUIDE East VOLUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS Holiday shopping forecast is optimistic Geri McShane loves to shop. Shes a finder of bargains, a diva of dcor and a purveyor of scrumptiousness at her holiday gatherings. So, its hard to believe her when she says shes going to be extremely cautious this holiday season. This year is going to be more needbased than want-based, she said. I feel like the way things are I just want to get back to what its really all about. I want an old-fashioned Christmas and I want to focus on the reason r ather than the retail. B ut the National Retail Federation, or NRF, is forecasting a different picture than the one Mrs. McShane paints. A report on its website stated that the NRF predicts holiday sales this y ear will increase 4.1 percent to $586.1 billion higher than the 10y ear average holiday sales increase of 3.5 percent. This is the most optimistic forecast NRF has released since the recession. In spite of the uncertainties that exist in our economy and among consumers, we believe well see solid holiday sales growth this year, said NRF Pr esident and CEO Matthew Shay, in a statement posted on the website. Mr. Shay cited the recent election and general concern about economic growth as variables that could affect consumers spending plans but, he said, overall we are optimistic that r etailers promotions will hit the right chord with holiday shoppers. A ccording to a disclaimer on the w ebsite, the NRF defines holiday sales as retail industry sales in the months of November and December. Retail industry sales include most traditional retail categories including non-store, auto parts and accessories stores, discounters, department stores, grocery stores and specialty stores, and exclude sales at automotive dealers, gas stations, and restaur ants, the disclaimer stated. S hop.org recently released its 2012 online holiday sales forecast, expecting sales to grow 12 percent over last holiday season to as much as $96 billion. M ainstreet DeLand Association E xecutive Director Jack Becker wants shoppers heading to Downtown D eLand to have a memorable experience. He said thats the goal every y ear. C hristmas comes every year. We know this, and the fourth quarter is the time businesses make the money to sustain, Mr. Becker said. As always, were going to do everything we can to bring people downtown to show them a good time, give them good food and good values. Mr. Becker said holiday shopping should be an event, rather than a chore. Y ou can go shopping anywhere, but we try to make it a neat experience. Thats what we do down here, he said. A sea of smiling faces and cars everywhere on a recent brilliantly sunny Friday afternoon confirmed that Downtown DeLand merchants are doing something right.

Traveling too much can lead to exhaustion, which is especially dangerous for those traveling by automobile.

H ealth and fitness gifts are becoming more popular. With all the emphasis on the dangers of obesity and a sedentary lifestyle, maybe even Santa has been busting some moves to lose a few pounds. I bet the reindeer (and Mrs. Claus) would really appreciate that. H elping someone you care about become healthier and more fit is one of the best gifts you can give anyone, said Beverly Johnson, vice president of health strategy for the Volusia Flagler Family YMCA. There are fitness r elated gifts for everyone in the family from ages 4 to 94. F or adults who arent very active, a membership to a fitness club might be a great way to get them started on a healthier lifestyle. There are a wide var iety of gyms and other fitness centers throughout the area, and many cater to beginners. A family membership is an excellent way to do something good for y our entire family, including yourself, said Ms. Johnson. A typical youth YMCA monthly membership costs about $20, and a family membership averages $55 per month. M embership fees at the Y are income-based, she said. Depending on the financial need of the family, they might qualify for up to 50 percent off the regular fees. Ms. Johnson also suggests giving gifts of specialty classes, such as cycling, yoga, pilates, Zumba, kickboxing or swimming for the more active recipients on your gift list. Often times, people get into habits and stick with what they usually do. By going outside the lines, you encourage them to try something new something they really might enjoy while focusing on different parts of their body. There are some new, exciting classes out there. At the Y, for example, were certified to offer the new Les Mills training courses like B ody Pump and Body Combat. Those are new and fun. G yms and fitness centers throughout Volusia County also offer different kinds of classes, including the new boot camp training programs. There are individual and group classes for everybody from toddlers to seniors and from chair exercises to the latest intense full-body military style TRX workouts. 23GIFT GUIDE East VOLUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2012 F itness gift ideas for everyones budgetBy Barbara Salter NelsonF or Hometown News See F IT, 24 FLOORTIMECarpet & Tile4730 S.

24November 2012GIFT GUIDE East VOLUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWS G ifts of sessions with a personal trainer are also great for the beginning or the seasoned exerciser, she said. In fact, if you give a gift of group personal training to a friend and yourself, you both have a better chance at sticking with it. B efore starting on any kind of exercise program, though, its important to check with your doctor to make sure you dont have any restrictions or limitations before you begin, said Ms. Johnson. M assages also make an excellent gift, she added. Many times, even if a person does work out, they dont treat themselves to the softer side of fitness like massage. These can be purchased individually or in packages for discounted pricing. G ifts of fitness clothing or gear especially for the folks who are just getting started are always appreciated. A lot of people dread exercising, especially when just starting out, Ms. Johnson said. They just throw on whatever they have and dont invest in a good outfit. If you give them something cute, colorful and stylish, perhaps made from the newer dry wicking fabrics, theyll feel better about themselves and are more likely to go to the gym. Pr ices for fitness clothing vary, of course, but I found several ladies moisture wicking tops for less than $20 at local department stores, and bargain hunters who are Internet savvy should be able to stretch their dollars even more. G ym bags also make great gifts, Ms. Johnson said. The new ones are designed to keep your shoes and damp clothes separate. People generally dont splurge on nice gym bags for themselves. There are all kinds out there. Ms. Johnson has also been seeing a lot of the innovative, less structured workout shoes. The new FiveFinger shoes by V ibram are based on the theory that we r eally dont need as much structure in our sneakers. We were meant to be barefoot. It makes sense, she explained. Theyre cute and colorful and were seeing a lot more of them. That would be a fun gift. A ccording to Ms. Johnson, some other popular, higher-end fitness gifts include computerand GPSbased fitness trackers. These can cost about $200 and more depending on the functions. If yo u re on a tighter budget, a good basic pedometer with no frills can be found for less than $10 at most of the big box stores. F or those who are watching their budget, fitness gifts dont have to be fancy or expensive. W ater bottles are always good gifts. Some of them are more ergonomic and are easier to hold in y our hand. They take the pressure off trying to carry one while youre running or working out, said Ms. Johnson. Exercise mats are another gift idea. Most people dont change them out often enough and whether we like to admit it or not, we do sweat! S peaking of sweat, sweatbands and socks make good stocking stuffers and are easy on the budget. A fitness magazine subscription may help continue to motivate the recipient long after the holidays are over. And dont forget about the many DVDs and exercise video games out there. Once you get fitness on the brain, its fairly easy to come up with gift ideas at all price points. But its not always about finding the right present. S ometimes, we forget that we dont necessarily have to buy a gift, Ms. Johnson said. We can make a commitment as a family to eat healthier and to do something healthy together every day. Thats r eally the best thing that we can do for each other. Now that is a really great gift.FitF rom page 23 037439O O p p e e n n 7 7 D D a a y y s s 4 4 8 8 9 9 4 4 F F r r o o n n t t S S t t r r e e e e t t P P o o n n c c e e I I n n l l e e t t 3 3 8 8 6 6 7 7 6 6 1 1 4 4 8 8 3 3 1 1w w w w w w d d o o w w n n t t h h e e h h a a t t c c h h s s e e a a f f o o o o d d c c o o m m B eautiful Waterfront DiningEn jo y your Holiday Party at Down the Hatch C all today for reservations!V isit our unique gift shopGIFT CERTIFICATES AVAILABLE Come See Our Large Selection Of Christmas Decorations Unique Home Decor Quality Pre-owned FurnitureNew Items Arriving Daily (386)310-8727furnitureandmorefl.com 5571 S.Ridgewood Ave.Suite #3 Port OrangeLooking for Gifts?

The holidays can present a shopping dilemma when trying to come up with unique gift ideas for those older parents, grandparents and great-grandparents whose collection of knick-knacks and cardigans, given to them over the years, far exceeds their need. Per haps your loved one suffers from a level of dementia that prevents them from enjoying the gifts we once enjoyed giving them. My dad used to love the challenge of puzzles, so he would always find a new, unusual one under the tree. However, now the dementia, which has destroyed his memory, has also affected his cognitive ability to put together even the most juvenile of puzzles. So, we have learned to think outside the shirt box when choosing a gift for him or my mother, and have had luck with some of the ideas that follow. When dad was having difficulty r ecognizing mom, as a result of vascular dementia, we put together a picture book of scanned, old photographs that took him, chronologically, from their w edding day to their 50th anniversary. We included pages with several houses they have occupied, pictures of cars dad drove, as well as a page devoted to our family dog, Snoopy. Photos of the family growing up, from my sister and me as babies, to our own babies growing into adults, showed all of us aging through the years. At first dad didnt seem to get it, and I was afraid it was a waste of time but, as the days w ent by, he kept going back to the book and now, after two years, still shows it to visitors and even says he wants to be buried with it. There are several websites which walk you through the process of putting such a book together like S napfish.com, Shutterfly.com and W algreens.com. It was a time-consuming process but a labor of love I have never regretted. Another gift that pleased dad is a box of assorted chocolates from our local sweet store on Flagler Avenue in New S myrna Beach, Beachside Candy Shop. He never tires of the yummy group of gourmet truffles from this wonderful confection wonderland. They also carry candies from long ago that might spark memories and conversations of childhood favorites. Contributing to our local businesses also makes us feel good that we are contributing to their success. S hopping for an elderly friend or r elative whose mind is sharp also sometimes presents a conundrum. While cleaning out our parents home, when moving to an assisted living facility, we found many gifts unused, or duplicates of gifts we forgot they already had. It was an eye-opener as to how we sometimes get into a routine of giving them the same old thing each and every year. So instead of wrapping up another item to collect dust, perhaps an edible gift might be more welcome. Various food catalogues or websites, such as H arryandDavid.com, Wolfermans.com or ThePopcornfactory.com offer yummy gift ideas. Wolfermans sells breakfast ideas in the form of English muffins, cakes, fruit spreads and many more easy-to-prepare foods. The muffins and breads can be frozen and taken out when needed, providing a healthy, filling snack. H arryandDavid.com offers delicious fruits along with other nutritious foods. These gifts might help keep your older loved ones interested in eating at a time when their appetites and waning taste buds might keep them from consuming a balanced diet. 25GIFT GUIDE East VOLUSIA CountyHOMETOWN NEWSNovember 2012 Gift shopping for the elderly can be a challenge LIFE IN THE MI DDLESUSAN YOUNG See MIDDLE, 26 036817 386-252-5909Got Batteries?
