The city expects to receive $13:5 million frorn

that helps areas hurt by large numbers of housing
foreclosures.
The Port St. Lucie City Council last week held a

FORT PIERCE A proposal to

regarding the road.
One would be to do nothing, while
the other three, including the four-

amounts of widening. The cost of
any of the three would be abotit $40
million.
It's expected a decision will be
made by the end of 2009, but con-

2013.

THE FUNCTION OF DIFFERENT TEETH
Q: Is it true that fungi can grow in your mouth?
A: Yes. In fact, fungi occur naturally in the mouth, just as bacteria and viruses do. Normally
they all are kept in check by the body's natural defenses and by your practice of good oral 4
hygiene. Fungi in particular are kept in check by those steps and also by competition with
mouth bacteria. Sometimes, howeyer, when the body's balance gets out of whack for one reason
or another, the fungi may proliferate out of control and cause an infection.
A Fungal infection often occurs after a patient has been treated for a bacterial infection. The lsaif ~;~
antibiotic used for treatment reduces the numbefof bacteria in the mouth and the fungi thrive. A fungal
infection is also common when the body's immune system is weakened for whatever reason. Your dentist can
prescribe special antifungal medication in the event of a fungal outbreak.
"The most common of all fungal infections is called camdidiasis, also known as moniliasis or oral thrush. It's
especially common among the very young, the elderly and people who are weakened by other conditions. The
main sign is a creamy mating that can appear on any moist surface inside or outside th~e mouth. Talkwith your 8
dentist about ways to keep your' month's fungi under control.

City officials expect that in
cases where the houses cah
be rehabilitated, that will
help the economy by fun-

Sekna Schevers, with

Some at the meeting felt
the plan should help people

the number of foreclosed
homes will only increase,

Families eligible for the
program must have .an
income of 80 percent or less
of the median income for
the area. Ms. Selmer said.'
In Port St. Lucie, that
translates to an income of
$47,850 for a family of four.
Also, the plan requires
that 25 percent of,the funds
be used on housing for fam-
iles earning less than 50
percent of the median
income. -
For a family of four, 50
percent of the median
income is $29,900.
Once the city sells the
homes, more money will be
available for buying fore-
closed properties.
Along with helping low-
income families, the city

However, he said, 60 per-
cent of those homes were
found to be occupied during

City officials don't expect

I'he land is near the White
City Cemetery and the
Estate ofLongwood.
Because of continuing
concerns, the White City
Civic Association held a
meeting so residents could
learn more about the plans.
Jonathan Ferguson, ~an
.attorney representing the
congregation, said the land
was bought in 1988, before.
any homes were built in the
Estates of Longwood, a
neighboring subdivision.


The height of the roof and
a dome will riot exceed 33
feet and two towers will be
40 feet high, he said.
That's comparable in
height to the two-story
houses in the, Estates of
Longwood, 'Mr. Ferguson
added.
But one resident said
although the height may be
similar, once the mosque is
built, he yvill look outside of
his property and see "a
mammoth structure"


instead of vacant land.
"It sticks out like a sore
thumb," he said.
A landscaped wall will
serve as a buffer between
the residential development
and the mosque, Mr. Fergu-
son said. That drew some
.concerns from residents.
"You guys are taking away
our paradise," one woman
said. "You're going to put a
cement wall in ~place of
trees."
Mr. Ferguson said the
county requires the wall.
Prayer services will be
held daily, but few people
attend, he said.
The main service-is on Fri-
l ay afternoon.
Mr. Shadani said he dbes-
n't expect more than 50 peo-
ple to attend thie _Friday
service. The congregation
has only iriereased by abbut
25memb rs during the last


About 4,000 square feet
will be available for worship.
There will be a social area of
the same size.
Another resident ques-
tioned whether the approval
of the church on.the proper-
ty will set a precedent for
`Other such developments in
the county.
Matthew S. .Speath, an
engineer for the project, dis-
agreed it would set a new
precedent.
"W~e're not going above
and beyond (the existing
regulations). We're falling
with in .the existing code,"
said .Mr. Speath, branch
manager of Speath Engi-
neering in Fort Myers.
Although most concerns
were about the size of the
building, one man ques-
tioned whether an 18,000-
.square-foot Baptist church
wroulid be approved in Saudi


The congregation could
build a smaller mosque on
the property without need-
ing approval from the coun-
ty commission, he said.
Instead, members chose
to build a larger structure
and go through a planning
process that allows the
county to impose stricter
requirements, he said. .
The plans call for 106
parking spaces, half paved, a
number that exceeds the
normal requirement of 71.

I read ix the Nov. 14 issue about Toy;ota of Stuart signing the
"Toyota Promise" to havet respect for people and recognizee
these are challenging tim~ej." Since I'm in the mar ket for a new
Toyota, I called Toyota of Stuart to ask whether that dealership
charges a dealer service fee. The receptionist said she didd7t
kn~ow, but transferred me to sales. A polite salesman said that a
dealer service fee of $399.50 is charged on each sales contract.
Dealer service fees are additional profit to the dealer and are
outlawed in minay states..
`How about it, Toyrota of Stuart? If you want to have respect for
people, then eliminate your dealer service fee. Why should
Martin County residents have to travel outside Martin County
to find a Toycita dealer that doesn't charge dealer service fees?

C~hristmas woe5

In today's world, with today's prices, how are we supposed to
go about providing a nice Christmas for kids? It's all good and
well to say it's about the spirit and that it's not about the gift, but
try telling that to a 10 year old. Even though he knows not every
child can get everything he wants, he is accustomed to having
nice things. I'm afraid thathe won't believe in Santa anymore if
he doesn't get everything on his list. I cad't imagine how I am
going to afford to make higt happy this yrear. .

Here starts the onslaught of Democrats that are going to fill

no room here fo:r pariahs and those who are not destined for a
life w~ith lesus. Retreat to islands: mov;e to isola red pockets and
leave mainstream ~to those of us who lead a Christian life and
are accepted by God.
Marriage is for one man and one woman and that man
should be the follower of the man that runs this country. That
man should be a devout Christian, not some undercover
extremist. He is illing his cabinet with those with less experi-

And now, a fake reprimand from one of Bin Laded's hench-

Really, you lost respect for the whole city? Ared't you being a
wee bit dramatic here over a dog? Did you ever stop to consider
that maybe the police have had to deal with this same dog situ-

for what it was and you are the one not current?
Maybe the dog wasn't lost and was just out for a pee and you
are the one who distracted it and caused the situation. Lost and
confused? You can read dogs' minds? Why, if you are such an
upstanding citizen, didn't you take it in and do the right thing?
Why didn't you go out ofyour way to take it to the pound? Just

SWhile gnevmg may be a
difficult process, Ms. Nar-
done believes it can bring
families together.
"Talk to your children
about changes in life, about
life's normal struggles," she
says.''We change schools; we
move. Because grandpa died,
grandma can't do Chris~tmas
dinner this year, but we'll do
it at Aunt Sally's. These are life
lessons about transition and

"It's also important to
remember that kids need to
grieve and that everyone
does it differently. Everyone
must honor each person's
way of grieving and all of the
feelings they may express.

bring a positive focus to -

"It's also important for
people to communicate their
choices to others," she adds.
"That's especially true with
families. Each person's way of
handling grief is different;. If
Syou want to talk about your

"Compromise is important
at this time, as well," she says.
"If a holiday dinner is too

but others want to have it,
make sure each point of view
is taken into account.
"If someone doesn't want

others do, let them. If

tell them, 'I understand you

Smy research into
rn h or identity theft, I was
not expecting this subject to .
be as multifaceted as it is.
I went into it with the
misconception that identity
theft is pretty much between
consumers and their banks,
but what I found out sent
shivers down my spine.
Financial identity theft is
Just one of the ways thieves
can steal your identity, but it's
not the only way.
Another area where we are
vulnerable is in the medical
field. There are cases of
individuals who get hold of
other people's personal
information and then get
medical treatment under
that person's name.
YOu dod't hear about it
much, but imagine the

medical identity; theft is a

become part of your perma-
nent medical record, and if
you think trying to get an
unauthorized charge off your


credit card is difficult, try
getting something like that
off your medical record.
Or think about this: what
happens if your lcense is lost
or stolen and used by
someone who is involved in a
hit and run or a DUI?
Well, they get carted off to
jail, but the offense goes on
your license. Then, the next
time you get pulled over for
something minor and they
run your license, they see you
have a warrant out for your
arrest, but you never com-
mitted a crime. It's situations
like that that really opened
. my eyes to just how serious

researcher Rachel Boba, an
assistant professor at the
School of Criminology and
Criminal Justice in the Col-
lege of Architecture, Urban
and Public Affairs and the
Port St. Lucie Police Depart-
ment were recently awarded
the first Excellence in Law
Enforcement Research
award by the International
Association of Chiefs of
Police and Sprint-Nextel.
The award was given for
their innovative and contin-
uing research partnership to
improve' police operations


and public safety.
This award is the result of
nearly five years of applied
research, numerous publi-
cations and two federal
grants for an approach to
reduce and prevent crime,
conceived by Ms. Boba. The
approach is unique, because
unlike previous community
policing and problem-ori-
ented policing programs, it
seeks to infuse a problem-
solving approach,' crime
analysis and an accounta-
bility structure into the day-
to-day operations of the
police department.
"For problem solving to
become truly institutional-
ized, it has to be part of the
organization's mission and


the day-to-day work of the
agency," said Ms. Boba. "It
Can't just be carried out by a
specialist squad or relegated
to the lower ranks."
In 2003, she, along with
several other policing schol-
ars, was awarded a grant by
the Office of Community
Oriented Rolicing Services
to institutionalize problem
solving and analysis in sev-
eral police agencies.
Working together, Ms.
Boba and police depart-
ment officials reviewed
department practices and
developed strategies to
improve ,daily operations
related to crime prevention
and reduction.

The art represents efforts by
scientists and doctors to iden-
tify cancer cells.
"The arrows are made of
stained wooden doivels and
shredded ribbon," he wrote.
"Zone is on target. The other is
broke, and off-the- mark, rep-
resenting less accuracy.
'"Accuracy and color were
important elements in the
research," Brandon wrote. "I
wanted to reflect that impor-
tance in my art."
Brandon is one of many stu-
dent artists whio have partici:
pated in the ~eXpressions pro-
gram smece it started two years
ago.
The program evolved two
years ago, when Cleveland
Clinic had student interns
from Ohio high schools, said
Bryan Pflaum, director of cre-
ative learning in the oilice of
civic education initiatives.
After those :students com-
pleted their projecra, Mlr.
Pflaum said, the clinic wanted
toetndethe la n fin d a
way to turn the interns into
teachers," he said.
The students returned to
their schools in the -fall and
shared their experiences with
science and art classes, he
said.
The art studerits were given
the challenge of communicat-
ing the research through art.
"It ~engaged a whole new
group of students in the study
of scientific ~research," Mr.
Pflaum said.*
Then the clinics expanded
the program, partly by creat-
i aWeb site. students partc

year could watch a television
show based on te research

interns or read papers they
completed to get ideas for
their art.
It makes the study of sci-
ence feel more alive, he said.

said. "They're` learning about
science from a classmate or a
student 800 miles awajr who
spent the summer at the

"The research itself was
conducted at the Cleveland
SClinic, as part of a summer
intern program for high
school scientists."
Earlier this month, a pro-
fessional video team from the
clinic visited the school to
interview and film students,
Martha Cross, an rart
teacher at John Carroll, said
the project gave students a
challenge, a chance to go
beyond the type of art work to
which they are accustomed.
Jennifer's art dealt with dia-
betes providing visual inform.
mation that shows how both
high and low blood sugarare
risks of the disease.
Her art shows the bear
family peering in at
Goldilocks through the win .
dow with three bowls of por
ridge.
"IdeaLlly, one would want
blood sugar to be just right,"
she oro c .Pla iaerdes rb

turning Goldilocks' three bowls
of porridge (one too hot, one
too cold and one just right)
and the bear family peering in
the window."
Bridge .Sutorka, 16, of.Fort
Pierce, said her project was
based on learning about rned..
icines from pharmacists.
Her project was about infor
mation being provided from
one brain~ to another.
"fA lightning bolt, construct-
ed ofpaper, markers andglit.

up, completely innocently,
and asked one of the
agents, Disney goes to

Seize every moment like
there' is no tomorrow. Worry
only saps your energy and
burns you out. Youl knowv-
what you want. Refuse to letit
fear, doubt or indecision hold
you back. Contiriue to move
your life fonrw~ad. Be bold. You
have the dream. You have the
desire. You are our zodiac

:-Tacrued-April 20oMay 20
It could be stressful if you try
to take on too many projects.
Do you know howv to say no
when you don't want to do
certain things your heart ish't
in? If you don't, now is the
time to learn. Maintaidi your
balance and space and your
energy remains strong. Ask
for help when you need to.

Gemini May 21-June 21
You can only live one day at a
time, but you can plan a little
ahead. Figure out what you
want three, six and nine
months ah~ead. Make these
short, medium and long-
range goals.This gives you
time to plan ahead so you are
not always under pressure.
This solves the prd~blems of
procrastination, patience and
unrealistic expectations.

Leo July 23-Aug. 22
Your deaision-making skills
are especially strong now. The
activities you place in motion
have a great chance of suc-
ceeding. Delegate less-impor-
tant responsibilities to
upwardly-mobile associates.
This frees you to take care of
the most important ones and
also gives others a big vote of
confidence. Your recognition
moves you way ahead.

Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22

In 2007, they introduced
their Christmas show, fea-

forming holiday favorites.
Since it is the Three Red-

ols and traditional songs,
as well as a few sily ones,
such as "Grandma Got Run
Over by a Reindeer.
The emphasis is still on
good music and lots of
laughter.

"In 1979 I went to a won-
derful festival of singers in
Switzerland with a choir,"
he said. '1I met a kid,
Matthew L~ord, who had
turned 18 and had a glori-
ous voice. He was a rnaniac
of a madman. When I. got
back to the States, I was the
vaudeville director and
emcee for the great Ameri-
can Melodrama and
Vaudeville Theatre. I hired
the kid and we became
good friends," he said.
"Five Christmases ago,
.when I was with the Big
Apple Circus, Matt was in
the opera 'Boris Godunov'
and we hung out iri the
trailer. I got a call that he
was putting a call together,
He said he didn't have a
show, just an idea.


"For three or four
months, he'd call and read
dialogue. My show had a
hiatus .and we rehearsed
Matt's show for eight days.
Then we started getting
bookmgs. I gave' my notice
to the circus."
The show that evolved
was "Three Redneck
Tenors: A New IMusical
Adventure."
Featuring classically-
trained singers, the show
tells the story of three boys,
Billy Bob, Billy Joe and Billy
.Billee, who want to get out
of the La Donna Mobil'e
Home Park in Paris, Texas.
Mr. Maguire plays the
colonel, the boys' manager,
and acts as narrator. The
show was so successful

cookbook special at
the end of the column.
It's tree time again!
To keep your tree fresh, cut
some off the bottom before
putting it in a stand. Even
though some was cut when
it was purchased, it probably
has sealed up with sap. Use
lukewarm water for the first
tiime of adding water; add
one aspirin to that water for .
a tree up to 7 feet and two
aspirin for a larger tree. Add
cold water once or twice a
day thereafter. If the water is
gone the trunk will seal and
the tree will die.
I'd like to share with you
how I haridled the "I wants"
that go on and on with
children at Christmas. I
explained that many
children throughout the
world didn't have anything,
so moms an~d dads who
could afford it sent Santa
monant d soo thnS a dn l
give presents to the poor
children who had nothing.
Now you can negotiate,
choices can be made and
there will be no disappoint-
ments, since they kn~ow how
much money you can afford
to sencLSanta. Makes sense,
doesn't it?
* Common sense tells us
that Santa doesn't have time
to set up a tree and he )
certainly doesn't have time
to wrap gifts especially in the
same paper your kids saw
you buy.
In my family, we celebrate
both Christmas Eve and
Christmas Day. Of course we
do, we're Italian. How else
Scan we become martyrs?
Gifts are exchanged on
Christmas Eve both to family
members and kids. Presents
to be exchanged are
wrapped and placed under
the tree. Since Santa hasn't
come yet, nobody knows
i3 hat he will bring. Try it my

to not take things so seriously," Taboa-
da said. "He used to put it all on his
shoulders.
"He's learned to relax and he's
become a more proficient bowler. He's
actually having fun."
What the Titans had to endure the
last two seasons was anything but, funi.
After winning just one match in their
first season, Treasure Coast followed
that with a 3-12 record a year ago.
"There were teams that just ~literally
creamed us," Taboada said. "In a way,
I'ITh kind of glad.
"It taught them (our bowlers) soiie
reliance and some patience. They also
learned a little humility.
"It kept them wanting to get better:'"'
This season, the improvements
clearly shown, but Taboada knows
there is always room for more.
"I don't want anyone to be a "house"
bowler where they are good at Supet-
play (home) and not good anywhere
else," Taboada said.
"The boys have come in with the atti-
tude to do the best they can; that aniy
bowler on any given day can do any-
thing."
The Titans newfound approach
helped the team to an 11.-4 finish argia
seventh-place finish at the DistrictB 8
tournament.
"I'm very proud of them," Taboada
said.


demeanor lends itself to leadership."
Warren Vorrever has been on the
team since its inception and has steadi-
ly improved.
"He's been a starter since freshman
year," Taboada said. "He's gone from a
four-step to a five-step approach and
has gotten a lot more powerful."
Vorreyer had a 214 game and a 610
series in the Titans' 7-0 win over Fort
Pierce Westwood recently.
"When he's on, he's really on," Taboa-
da said. "When he's not, he's learning
patience. I see him taking his time. His
focus is really starting to develop.
"He's learning to read the lanes and
the oil patterns."
Erik Howard joined the team as a
freshman and has continued to
progress in his sophomore campaign.
"Toward the end of last season, he
was starting," Taboada said. "He's been
a regular starter this year.
"He's our leadoff bowler. He really
sets the tone. He's gone to a five-step
approach and gotten more powerful.
"There is really nothing that he needs
to correct. It's more fine tuning." '
Senior Cody Turek has been on the
team for all three seasons.
"I wasn't sure he would come back
after the way he finished last year,"
Taboada said. "He's come back with a
vengeance.

PORT ST. LUCIE -For the Treasure
Coast Titans boys' bowling team, this
season has been a matter of role rever-
sal.
Make that "roll" reversal.
After two disappointing campaigns
that saw the Titans win just four match-
es overall, Treasure Coast jumped out
to a 10-3 mark this year a far cry
from what their head coach envi-
sioned.
"I thought when I first saw them bowl
as a team in practice, there might be an
opportunity," Dee Taboada said.~ "I
thought they would hold their own:
"Basically, little bit of improvement.
They have exceeded my expectations."
The Titans' success can be traced, in
part, to the heady play of newcomer
Mike Sauber. A senior, the southpaw
joined the team this season, making
the transition from golf.
"He wanted to come out and try his
hand at bowlingg" Taboada said. "Once
I saw him, I knew he was definitely on
the team.
Sauber had a 223 game in Treasure
Coast's recent 5-2 win over Port St.
Lucie.
"He's blended in really well," Taboada
said. "He's the anchor.
"I made him the boys' captain. His


to itconis
Centennial rallied for the 3-
2 win under Baker format.
In the semifinals the
Eagles took on a tough
Seabreeze team that bowled
well early onl.
"In the morning, otar kids
came out hot," Bardsley
said. "The girls were incredi-
bly excited from the begiri-
ning and bowled as well as
theyr possibly could.
"The other .team was
keeping up with us until the
end. Somehow we came out
seven pins ahead.
"It was justwild."
In the finals against
Oviedo, Centennial faced
some of its best competition
of the season, including the
state's individual champion,
Julie Leonard.
"Brittney Theiss noutdu-
eled the No. 1 girl in thei
state," Bardsley said. "She
outbowled her again an~d
again especially the fikh
game.
"That's a lot of pressure fo~r
a young kid."
While the senior did what
Bardsley expected of her, the
Eagles were also buoyed -by
the efforts of several new-
comers to the team riot
just during the postseason
-- but throughout the entire
year.
Freshmen Tara Miller and
Brianna Rizzo came in ah~d
helped get the Eagles off the
ground, bowling consistent-
ly at the leadoff and No. -2
position.
"That was a crucial part' of
the team's success," Bardsley
said. "Somehow they
embraced the, champi-
onship spirit and it (a title)
became an expectation."

finish at the state tourna-

PORT ST. LUCIE For the
past three seasons, the St.
Lucie West Centennial girls'
bowling team won seeming-
ly every match it competed
in, with one glaring excep-
tion.
Despite making it to the
Elorida High School Athletic
Association Finals in each of
those years, the Eagles came
up short.
Until now.
Dominating from start to
finish, Centennial polished
off Oviedo in five games
recently for the champi-
onship at Boardwalk Bowl in
Orlando, cementing its
place among the state's elite.
"I've coached a number of
sports for a lot of years,"
Centennial head coach
David Bardsley said. "It
doesn't matter what you're
coaching, competing for a
state championship is very
special. .,
"Going up there it was a
very difficult environment,
but we went there to win.
Winning it was very special."
Seeded No. 4 entering the
tournament, the Eages beat

Creek in opening round
action. Cypress Creek actu-
ally had a 2-1 lead before

success or failure is in plain view,
the realization of such a brave move
takes hold..
It is all of our responsibility to
help our local business people
succeed. It is the core of a commu-

business partners, we would be left
with only the large national chains
with no ties to our community, only
looking to take our money and run

guests leave the party. While every host
wants their-guests to have a great time,
that can still be done safely by sticking
to some of the following guidelines.
Promote the use of a designated
driver: Better than 50 percent of all
traffic fatalities around the holiday
season are alcohol-related. But even if
it's not the season for egg nog and
mistletoe, irresponsible behavior at a
party can lead to disaster on the *
highway. If you're hosting a gathering
of couples, encourage carpooling
where one person remains sober to act
as the designated driver. In addition, .
the hosts should always remain sober,
just in case they're needed to drive
people home once the party, is over.
Offer more than just alcohol: At
graduation or anniversary celebra-
tions, the best part for most people
isn't the free alcohol, it's the chance to

MetroCreativeConnection ,

When ~deciding to throw a party,
many hosts do so to mark a significant
occasion or in celebration of a certain
holiday. Holidays or landmark events,
such as anniversaries or graduations,
already lend themselves to a good
time, creating a festive mood where
guests and hosts alike want to let
loose. .
Good food, a few drinks and old
friends only add to such jovial moods.
However, if hosts and guests don't
behave responsibly, joyous occasions
can soon turn sour. When that occurs,
more often than not alcohol is to
blame. As hosts of a party, such a turn

A recipe for taking successful holiday photos


angle, it may only be good for 7 feet
when you zoom in on something. The
irony is that here you are trying to
photograph something 20 feet away
and make it look closer by zooming in
but you have reduced your flash range
to less than 10 feet away. Once again,
you'll get the dreaded underexposed
picture. Your best and brightest
photos need to be properly exposed. It
is the proper light that gives yoeu the
great color. Zoom lenses on pomnt-
and-shoot cameras are primarily for
outdoor use for just that reason.
Red eyes caused by flash cim ruin
the best of photographs. Although
now this can be fixed digitally, it can
be prevented at the time the photo-
graph is taken. Red-eyes are caused by
the flash being too close to the lens on
a point and shoot camera reflecting on
the retina of your subject's eye.
When you use the red-eye reduction
feature on your camera, there is a
delay in the taking of the photograph.
This delay occurs because the camera
emits a light to help dilate the pupil to
reduce, not eliminate, the red-eye

them. The results are constant. You
will have a beautiful background and a
dark subject.
The remedy is to turn on the flash
yourself. Usually located with the
universal lighting bolt symbol, press it
until the flash symbol remains on your
display. Find a situation as I described
above and take one with and one
without the flash. When you receive
your images back from the lab or view
them on the monitor, you'll see a
difference, providing you're within the
proper flash distance.
About flash distance: The reason
most images are dark is because
people take their indoor pictures
when they are out of range of what the
flash is capable of illuminating. We've
all seen people in the last row of a
sports arena with their point 'and-
shoot cameras taking flash pictures.
These amateur photographers are sure
to be disappointed,
Your instruction book will list the
range of your flash on the back pages.
There are different ranges for different
film speeds, but more important, for
different zoom lengths. If your flash is
good for, let's say 15 feet in its widest

coming from. If your subject is sitting
in front of a big picture window during
the daytime and you take the picture
in automatic, the flash will not fire
(because it 'thinks' that window light
is adequate) and your subject will look
like a silhouette, albeit a very nice
silhouette, but not even close to the
image you had mind.

pictures from last year. What
would you want to fix? Were
they too dark? Were they too fuzzy?
Was your subject too sniall and nearly
unrecognizable? There are some quick
fixes for the more common photo
'mistakes.'
The most common camera issue is
so obvious, but rarely does somebody
take an hour or less to correct it. With
the costs of film and processing you
should make every image count. It
won't matter whether you have a
point-and-shoot film camera, digital
camera, video camera, Web cam or
single-lens reflex. READ and COM-
PREHEND YOUR INSTRUCTIONS! You
wouldn't hire a professional in any
field who didn't know how to operate
their equipment. Why would jrou
expect great results when you won't
read your own instruction book? Keep
the camera in your hand while review-
ing it and follow each page step by
step. Six months later, pull it out
again. Now that you have a better
understanding of your camera, some
things may seem clearer~ to you.

The holiday season should be one full of hap-
piness and merriment. However, it canl be a sea-
son with the potential for danger. According to
the U.S. Fire Administration, Christmas trees
account for 200 fires annually, resulting in
deaths, injuries and more than $6 million in
property damage. Typically, shorts in electrical
lights- or open flames from candles, lighters or
matches start tree fires.

A well-watered tree is one precaution against
fires. There are other measures to take to safe-
guard the family: *
*Keep Christmas trees away from floor
heaters, fireplaces, or other heat sources.
*Use only UL-listed lights, and no rnore than 3
strands linked together. Choose miniature lights
that have cool-burning bulbs.
Turn off the Christmas lights when you leave
the house or retire for the night.
Never use candles, even on artificial trees.
Test all smoke detectors in the home and
replace batteries, if necessary.
Don't overload wall outlets or extension
cords.
*Monlitor candles carefully. Only light candles
that are in sturdy containers.

effect. With that delay,
there is a good chance you
may miss the shot you were
hopmg for.
Instead of opting for the
red-eye reduction feature,
whenever it is possible,
create more available light.
You will still need the flash,
but the extra lights will
dilate the pupils so the red
will stay out of the eyes. You
can also have your subject
look away from the lens
slightly when you take the
