Florida Gov. Charlie Crist made a stop in downtown Orlando on Wednesday, Dec. 16, for a ceremonial bill-signing for SunRail.


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF
Hundreds turned out to
watch Gov. Charlie Crist
sign SunRail into reality on
Dec. 16. Flanked by back-
ers of the commuter rail
deal ahead of a steam train
backdrop, Crist called it "an
A-letter day."
Prominent politicians
spoke on the merits of the
$1.2 billion rail deal, which
could bring commuter
trains to Central Florida
within three years.
That entourage included


Sen. Lee Constantine, who
spoke of "visionaries" who
had brought trains to Flori-
da more than 100 years ago,
setting off a chain of devel-
opment that would form
the state as it is today.
But up until Wednesday,
most of Florida had been
without a commuter rail
system. With a stroke of a
pen, Crist changed that, giv-
ing his official endorsement
to a deal to buy 61 miles of
train tracks from rail com-
pany CSX and possibly help
usher in high-speed rail sys-


tems from Orlando to Tam-
pa and Miami.
Backers of the deal had
boasted about the poten-
tial jobs created to build
the infrastructure for the
train systems.
"This is about jobs, jobs,
jobs," Crist said. "If ever
there was a time that we
needed an infusion of jobs,
this is it."
Orlando was the third
stop for Crist on that day
alone, as he traveled to cer-
emonial signings in Tampa

Moral

judgment?

JENNY ANDREASSON
OBSERVER STAFF
Maitand Town Center de-
veloper Bob Reese was in
court on Dec. 12 fighting
a bank's motion to speed
up foreclosure on a prop-
erty after he allegedly mis-
appropriated $16,000 in
rent.
Reese, of Brossier Co.,
and the bank came to an
eleventh hour agreement,
according to a memo to
the Maitland City Council,
but that still left Council-
man Phil Bonus question-
ing the developer's mor-
als.
"Is there ever any level
of conduct by Brossier that
would justify terminat-
ing the guy?" Bonus asked.
"When is enough enough
for some of us?"
But Councilors Jeff
Flowers, Linda Frosch and
Bev Reponen were quick
to say that the city doesn't
have the right to judge
its business partners on a
moral level.
"We need to let that
judge do his job, and we
make a decision from the
final result," Flowers said.
"Walking back into the
good ol' times of the 50s
and that kind of morality
is a mistake."

UCF falls in St. Petersburg Bowl


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF

High hopes for a bowl game
win came crashing down
onto Tropicana Field Sat-
urday night, as the UCF
Knights fell to the Rutgers
Scarlet Knights 45-24.
The game was the third
bowl appearance for the
Knights, who had lost their
two previous national grid-
iron apperances.
A tough Rutgers defense
held the Knights to just
three touchdowns and 255
yards, while UCF's defense
let the Scarlet Knights dom-
inate the air, passing for 294
yards en route to 380 total.
Long plays would make
the difference in the game,
as Rutgers only advanced
to the red zone three times,
but scored three more times
from outside the 20 yard
line. In their second score
of the game quarterback
Tom Savage connected with
receiver Tim Brown for a
65-yard pass. Two Rutgers


touchdowns in the second
half would come on an in-
terception and a kickoff re-
turn.
Big holes in UCF's of-
fensive line let the Scarlet
Knights through to sack
quarterback Brett Hodges
six times in the game, driv-
ing him back 36 lost yards in
the process.
The Knights tried to
come back repeatedly dur-
ing the game, keeping pace
after Rutgers scored the first
touchdown of the game,
then scoring again soon af-
ter Rutgers' second touch-
down. But by the half they
were down by 11 points,
with the Knights wonder-
ing what could have been.
The Knights had been
down by only four points
with a final possession be-
fore the half, but Hodges
threw an interception to
cornerback Billy Anderson,
who took a hopeful UCF
lead-changing drive and
turned it into an instant


morale-destroying touch-
down.
A strong second half team
all year, the Knights came
out of the tunnel after half-
time with a big comeback
weighing on their shoulders.
That would never come, as
they watched Rutgers post
two unanswered scores to
start the third quarter.
By the time the fourth
quarter rolled around the
Knights were down 21
points and looking at one of
their biggest blowout losses
of the season.
But Hodges led his team
downfield again, capping
the drive off with a 2-yard
run by Jonathan Davis to
bring the score to 38-24
with just 2:23 left in the
game.
With only short time left,
the Knights tried an on-side
kick, which embarrasingly
turned into a 35-yard kick-
off return for Rutgers to
drive the final nail into the
coffin.

Cats fall 86-75 to nation's No. 1 team

Clutch scoring led Lyman over Lake Howell. Winter Park fell to Findlay on Saturday.


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF

The Winter Park Wildcats
had the lead against the No.
1 ranked basketball team
in the nation, but watched
it erode into an 86-75 loss
Saturday at the City of Palms
tournament in Ft. Myers.
The Wildcats jumped out
to a 22-21 lead after the first
quarter, shocking the Find-
lay Prep Pilots, who as re-
cently as last week had been
ranked No. 1 nationwide.
The game was looking to
be another unlikely take-
down by the high-flying
Wildcats, who had stunned
nationally-ranked Monte-
verde Academy last week.
But as the game wore on,
the Wildcats were overtak-
en and the Pilots put on the


afterburners.
Findlay's Cory Joseph
led his team with 27 points,
followed closely by Tristan
Thompson with 23 and
Nick Johnson with 19. That
offensive onslaught was
difficult for the Wildcats to
keep up with, particularly
in the second quarter, when
they were outscored 27-18.
Four Wildcats would
score in the double digits
on the night, led by Austin
Rivers with 22, then Rob-
ert Lovaglio with 17, then
Isaac Turner with 15 and
Brett Comer with 13. Rivers
lit up the outside with three
3-pointers, but missed nine
in the process. Lovaglio was
on fire, shooting 86 per-
cent.
Rebounds were the big
story of the night, with the


Pilots outsnatching the
Wildcats 28-15.
The City of Palms tour-
nament continued during
press time. Up next for the
Wildcats, they'll travel to
face Butler in Huntsville,
Ala., on Tuesday, Dec. 29.
Lake Howell suffered a
trouncing by Lyman 66-59.
The game had been tied as
late as two minutes left in
the fourth quarter, but the
Silver Hawks watched help-
lessly as the momentum
shifted toward the Grey-
hounds, who picked up key
rebounds to take the lead
and keep it in the final sec-
onds.
The Hawks are 4-3 after
the loss. Now they're hop-
ing for a shot at redemption
Jan. 6 against Lake Brantley.

party."
"From time to time ques-
tions are asked about holi-
day parties or events, so it
just seemed natural to think
about it and capture some
information," Raiskin said.
The lawyers wrote the
article to remind both em-
ployees and employers of
two major problems that
can arise during holiday
parties alcohol and sexu-
al harassment and the li-


abilities that can occur after
the holiday festivities have
ended.
"Although there are not
too many cases of some-
one successfully suing their
employer, the point (of the
article) is that the liability is
out there, it could happen,"
Davis said. "Even though it's
not something that happens
every year it's still some-
thing that people should be
conscious of."
Companies such as Bent-
ley Architects & Engineers


know the importance of
having a safe holiday party
and try to keep their em-
ployees aware of certain
safety guidelines.
"What we did to limit al-
cohol consumption is we
issued two drink tickets, so
that everyone can have a
drink, but also encourage
responsibility," said Siobhan
Turner, marketing director
of Bentley Architects & En-
gineers. "We also encourage
carpooling and having des-
ignated drivers in our e-mail


about the holiday party."
The company holiday
party took place at Winter
Park's Hot Olives, where in
addition to a buffet of food
the company organized a
scavenger hunt. "It got our
staff members together and
we worked as teams," Turn-
er said.
Besides offering activi-
ties, Raiskin recommends
having a manger avail-
able to monitor employ-
ees throughout the party,
supplying employees with


a written code of rules on
sexual harassment and re-
minding employees that the
holiday work party is an ex-
tension of the workplace.
"We try to create circum-
stances where employees
are not overindulging at
the holiday party and re-
mind them that their work-
place policies apply equally
at work and at the holiday
party," Raiskin said.

Holiday traditions


The holidays are special for
many reasons. One of the
most important is being
with family and friends
and building tradition
throughout the years.

Traditions of old
As a young child, the
anticipation of Christmas
brought excitement and
delight to our family. My
brothers and sister and I
would write stories about
winter and Christmas, all of
which we would illustrate
and color ourselves.
My father took pride in
decorating for the holidays.
Every year, he would climb
onto the snow-covered
roof and carefully place
Santa and his reindeer for
all to see. I have carried on
the tradition by decorating
our home with many bright
and sometimes twinkling
lights in hopes that Santa
won't miss our house this
year.
We celebrated each year
with two Christmas trees
- a smaller tree upstairs
with all green lights that
provided a soothing glow
each evening, and a larger
tree downstairs with multi-
colored lights under which


we found gifts and other
surprises each Christmas
morning.
With five young children,
it was all my parents could
do to keep food on the
table and shoes on our feet.
We lived in a modest home,
one without a fireplace. So
my dad improvised with
a bright red, cardboard
version to which we affixed
our stockings. The fireplace
glowed as if housing a
real fire, and our family
provided the warmth as we
told stories that built our
tradition.
As we grew older the
traditions with my family
have mirrored many of the
traditions of the past. From
the lights, to the stories, to
the hanging of stockings
(albeit a real fireplace now),
our family has continued
traditions of old and begun
new ones of our own.

New Traditions
One new tradition began
with celebrating the
holidays over an expertly
prepared meal each
year with friends, a gift
exchange, and the singing
of Christmas carols well
into the evening.


This year was especially
memorable, as we
celebrated 20 years of
continued friendship.
But rather than a gift
exchange, members of the
St. Margaret Mary Church
on Park Avenue visited
our celebration, singing
Christmas carols to raise
money that would help St.
Isador, their sister parish in
Haiti.
Haiti is one of the
poorest countries in the
Western Hemisphere with
more than 80 percent of
the population living in
poverty. More than 60
percent of the population
is illiterate and the average


per capita income is less
than $300 per year!
To my surprise, the
church group arrived with
about 20 participants.
From guitar, to bongo,
to triangle, to bells, they
were an entire ensemble
of players and singers
that belted nearly every
carol imaginable. Even
Santa and Mrs. Claus were
part of the celebration.
They were so real, it
brought back memories
of the anticipations and
traditions of old.
It's easy to get caught
up in the hustle and bustle
of the holidays. But it's not
so much about presents,


food or drink, as much as it
is about being with family,
friends and taking every
opportunity to help out a
neighbor in need.
My heartfelt thanks
go out to the St. Margaret
Mary group for helping out
a neighboring parish and
for touching our lives in
a way I will never forget. I
look forward to this being a
holiday tradition for many
years to come.
May the joy of the
holiday season bring peace,
prosperity and goodwill
to you, your family and
friends!

Restaurant Reviews by



P.J lam


These Tuscans knew food

... and so does Brio!


With its magnificent land-
scape of rolling hills cov-
ered with flowers, olive
groves and grapevines,
Tuscany is the Italian region
of every American's dream.
This region gave us Leonar-
do DaVinci, Michelangelo,
Galileo and Botticelli, to
name only a few, and any-
one who tastes their tradi-
tional foods must believe
that the cuisine helped to
'grow' those geniuses. For
centuries the cooking of
Tuscany was considered the
greatest in the world and
fortunately for us, much
of what we appreciate to-
day: wine, olive oil, and the


freshest vegetables remain
alive in Tuscan cooking.
Brio Restaurants in
Winter Park Village and at
the Mall at Millenia go
back to Tuscany for the
influence that gives their
menu such diversity and
taste. Olive oil is basic -
used as salad dressing,
poured over bread, and in
soups. Sage, rosemary, and
thyme are popular herbs,
and mixing these ingredi-
ents into hearty luncheon
salads is one of the things
that make the Brio restau-
rants a perfect lunch time
destination.
In two recent visits, the


appetizers of Beef Carpac-
cio and Spicy Shrimp and
Eggplant were particularly
pleasing. Creating a true
carpaccio cut is a labor
of love, and it is perfectly
created at Brio. The beef
must be cut so thin that
you can see through it
(which they achieve), and
here it is 'dressed' with
an olive oil infused with
crushed mustard seed and
fine Parmigiano cheese. I
call it perfection. The spicy
shrimp is indeed spicy and
the unique mix of Romano-
cheese crusted eggplant
works beautifully with the
black-pepper-corn cream
sauce which covers both
shrimp and eggplant.
Over two visits my guest
and I tried several offer-
ings and I have to agree
with her choice when she
said, "the crab and shrimp
cakes were my favorite."
Mixing diced shrimp into a
traditional crab-cake adds
an even more taste to this
much-loved dish. The mix
is held together by a citrusy
pesto giving this seafood a
rich, yet delicate flavor. My
friend says, "I was pleased
they did not have a lot
of filler (Japanese Bread
crumbs) in them. They were


moist and succulent!"
Another favorite is the
Sweet Potato and Chicken
Risotto a fine choice for
the winter months. The
chunks of sweet potato
were perfectly cooked to
hold their own in a dish
that kept me coming back
for 'one more taste.' The
restaurant uses Parmigiano-
Reggiano cheese the fin-
est parmesan cheese, and
that extra expense pays off
handsomely in the taste.
Of the salad platters, I
am still deciding whether
my favorite is the Sliced
Steak Salad or the Salmon
Salad. The steak salad may
have a slight edge in that
the grilled tenderloin is
amazingly tender and
warm when served provid-
ing a pleasing distinction
with its accompanying
mixed greens, cherry toma-
toes, chunky blue cheese,
and the biggest taste sur-
prise candied pecans in
the salad. Yes, it sounds like
a slightly odd mix, but the
salad's horseradish dressing
provides the perfect coun-
terpoint to the candied
pecans. It all works so well!
The salmon salad brings to-
gether Brio's famous wood-
grilled salmon once


again cooked to 'warm'
perfection with a salad
mix of feta cheese, grilled
asparagus (I love grilled
asparagus), and a balsamic
dressing.
Of the desserts served
in perfectly 'small' portions
- we were rapturous over
the chocolate cake with a
buttery caramel topping
and the 'hot cocoa-flavored'
creme brulee.
Brio truly lives by its
motto "To Eat Well Is To
Live Well," and it is com-
forting to have these 'food
destinations' on both sides
of town!
Brio is open daily of-
fering a lunch, dinner and
childrens' menu along with
a brunch menu on Saturday
and Sunday.

Some seniors feel holiday stress


BRITTNI JOHNSON
GUEST REPORTER
More people are expected to
travel in the U.S. to be with
family for the holidays, ac-
cording to a study released
by Auto Club AAA on Dec.
16. Seniors are feeling the
holiday tug, too.
It projects that 87.7
million Americans will
be traveling 50 miles
or more away from S
home over the year-
end holidays a 3.8
percent increase over
last year.
Whether it's the
two-hour trip to see
the Florida family,
or the expensive
journey to see
the Rhode Is-
land family,
seniors Stew-
art and Carol
Belden are
consider-
ing the
costs.
"Every trip
is budgeted," Stewart
said. "We save probably six
months in advance for a trip
up north."
The jump in travel maybe
a sign Americans are relax-
ing the tight hold they had
on their travel budgets last
year, said Kevin Bakewell,
Senior Vice President, AAA
Auto Club South. "Econom-
ic recovery may finally be
taking root, and we believe
many Americans certainly
share the same hope," he
said.
Most of the time Carol
flies up and Stewart drives
when they go to Rhode Is-
land. They bring their dog
and cat rather than board-
ing them in Florida, which
saves them money. The trip


ends up costing them about
$600.
Vera and George Wannal,
residents at the Mayflower
Retirement Community in
Winter Park, will travel to
their son's home in Ocala for
Christmas this year, as they
do every year. And while the
90-mile trip may cost them
a tank of gas, it's not
something they have
to budget for.
"We don't worry
about it," Vera said.
Nearly everyone travels
for the holidays in the
Mayflower commu-
nity, she said.
Helen Jones,
the president of
the Winter Park
division of the
AARP, held the
same senti-
ment about
how mon-
ey and the
economy
affect her hol-
iday travel sched-
ule.
"I go ahead and travel no
matter what," she said.
Plus the quick trip to
Oviedo costs less than a tank
of gas. It's worth it for Jones,
who never spends a holiday
away from her family.
While some seniors feel
the stress of holiday travel
costs and others don't, the
reason they travel is the
same family. And all the
seniors said nothing could
keep them away from their
families during the season
of cheer and love.
"Family is No. 1 and you
want to spend as much time
as possible with them, espe-
cially around the holidays,"
Stewart said.

Over several decades, Ange-
lo Perciballis has prepared
multi-course Christmas
feasts that his family in Ripa,
Italy, would have approved
of. Families such as the Perc-
iballises gather, graze and
grow up cooking forming
an everlasting bond.
"We're Italian we eat,
we rest, and eat some more,
but everyone helps in the
kitchen," he said.
Maitland resident Beth
Hosler and her mother
taught her three sons to
cook.
"They could make Rice
Krispies treats from the
time they were 4," she said.
"They would cut out cook-
ies and decorate them at
Christmas."
Oldest son and newly-
wed, Andrew, 23, makes his
grandmother's famous sug-
ar cookie recipe. Since they
were small the Hosler boys
learned how to mash pota-
toes, make gravy and peel
carrots.
"Everyone had a job; they
didn't wait for someone to
cook for them," Beth said.
Youngest son Matthew,
17, takes cafe classes at Lake

12. Ruth Behrle and son Da-
vid, 8, learned from market-
ing director Leah Abell. Ruth
said her grandmother was
an excellent cook but when
her mom went to work, a
generation of cooking was
lost. Ruth doesn't want Da-
vid to miss out and says they
are cooking at home more
and using produce from
their garden.
"On Christmas Eve we
make a breakfast casserole
and bake a small cake for Je-
sus' birthday," Behrle said.
Ruth noticed that work-
ing in the kitchen is helping
David learn fractions. "He is
also more likely to try a new
food if he helped make it,"
she said.
Joining the Behrle fam-
ily was Sumer and Saumya
Sao and their mom Monika.
They gathered dry ingredi-
ents to create cranberry-pis-
tachio oatmeal lace cookies,
layering them in a mason
jar then decorating the jar
with ribbon. Saumya and
Sumer just finished baking
sweet treats for their teach-
ers, classmates and school
fundraisers at Dommerich
Elementary and Maitland
Middle School.
Monika is pleased to see
them immersed in the spirit
of giving, helping friends
celebrate Christmas.
"This is their holiday par-
ty," she laughed. "They are
good helpers in the kitchen
and Sumer does a great job
kneading the dough. Some-
times he talks to it."
In November the Saos
celebrated Indian holidays
by making traditional co-
conut balls called Coconut
Laddu and rice pudding,

her own twist on the ribbon

A Christmas tale from


Christopher Robin


I never get invited to
Christmas parties any more.
And I so like a good parteee.
And who doesn't? Stick-
in-the-muds, that's who.
Actually, I don't think folks
entertain as much as previ-
ous generations did. People
don't know how to cook or
entertain or to have a soi-
ree because they are simply
too nervous. It's hard for
some people to host events
and at the same time enjoy
themselves. So, why do it? I
can briefly feel that way on
occasion when the num-
bers get more than 20 for a
sit-down dinner.
And, of course there is
the expense. Just about any
intimate dinner is a $200
bill, at minimum. Some
have their parties catered
but that's not my cup of
tea, so to speak. You cater
fundraising events for poli-
ticians and charities, not
gatherings of friends. But
that's me. A good parteee is,
indeed, work but at the end
of the night, if you still have
all your silver, well worth
it, one hopes. Ha! Ha! I joke
about the silver. Although,
whoever has my grand-
mother's large serving
spoon, please return it. Ha!
And, then, of course,
there are the unintended
incidents. People crying


over dessert, "No, no, it's
not too sugary!" Or just cry-
ing and then walking out
the front door. I soooo love
it when couples bring their
"lives" to the parteee and,
you know, their "lives" get
the better of them (and the
rest of us) right then and
there. And off "they" go to
the races. It could be enter-
tainment except you care
for the combatants. Sigh.
I like "good" minds at a
parteee. I'm not so much
into acrimonious debate as
I am intelligent discussion.
As opposed to intelligent
design. Ha! Actually, I can-
not even imagine a parteee
composed of "intelligent
design" adherents? It would
seem like the science of
turning on an electric oven
might be too much for
them. Be kind, Chris. No.
Not with the brain-dead.
A parteee of zombies? Hey
now! Maybe that is a poten-
tial movie plot. Who actual-
ly becomes a zombie in the
future? Creationists!? Dead
before and dead again!
I used to have a conver-
sation once or twice a year
with my lunch buddy, John
Fisher. We'd discuss who
we would invite for dinner,
if we could invite anyone
from history. It would be a
parteee of eight. I quickly


honed in on Ava Gardner
as a regular. John agreed as
our taste in beautiful wom-
en ran along the, uh, same
lines. Dorothy Parker. Oscar
Wilde. Voltaire. Mark Twain.
Jefferson (when feeling
social). Possibly Cleopatra.
Marcus Aurelius. Smart,
witty repartee. A Repartee
Parteee!
Actually, this would be a
fun parteee to host. Come
as your character and be in
character.
But back to the larger
question of why I am no
longer invited to Christmas
Parties: A true story fol-
lows. A year or two ago 20
or so adults are gathered
around a piano in the host's
home and just before we
are about to sing Christmas
carols the host suggests we
all tell a story from our past
about how our families cel-
ebrated X-mas. What fun,
I'm sure the host innocent-
ly thought! Sigh.
Herein follows: A Christ-
mas tale from Christopher
Robin.
Once upon a time there
was a young lad of 14. He
was the youngest of four
beautiful (It's my story and
I'm partial) children, the
offspring of Chris and Ma-
rybelle. The parents were
living the lives that so many
adults at times live when
their dreams and aspira-
tions are suspect and the
person you find yourself
with disappoints. The par-
ents undoubtedly loved one
another but were in a state
of transition.
Now Christmas was no
longer the same as it once
was when all the children
were small and all of life's
problems were just that,
small.
Oh, there was joy and
happiness and laughter and
frivolity because that was
the inherent nature of that


household. But the "blush"
was definitely off the bloom
of the holiday and nowhere
was that more evident than
in the Christmas tree orna-
ments.
Once shiny and spar-
kly ornaments were now
chipped and faded. The
lights were an incoherent
ragtag assortment of mid-
1950s bulbs. They too were
scraped and scratched and
would randomly flicker
on and off. A metaphor for
marriage? They were more
the lights and ornaments of
a down and out homeless
shelter. It was so sad.
Now the hero takes it
upon himself to upgrade,
unify and to again make
splendorous, the family
Christmas tree. Working
since age 12, he always
had a sufficient jingle in
his pocket. And over two
weeks in early December
he invests $12 to $14 in
new ornaments, a princely
sum then. He decides on
a blue/green theme and
buys coordinated lights and
bulbs. The tree is set up and
"wow" is the desired and
achieved effect. It is beauti-
ful. It glitters. It glows. It's
modern! It's a wonderful
life!
Every night, our lad lays
down on the couch and
with his head on a pillow
drifts in and out of holiday
revelry, in and out of sleep
watching the beautiful tree
he created twinkle and
sparkle, much as an incan-
descent jewel. He sleeps the
sleep of the innocent, of the
good. And, soon it will be
Christmas day!
One late Saturday night
finds our lad warmly en-
sconced on the couch,
bathed in the cozy glow
of the tree he created. He
dreams no doubt of sugar
plums (high school girls).
But? What's this? Out of the


fog of sleep he hears his
parents heatedly arguing.
He hears their feet on the
porch. He hears the front
door open, he hears the
accusatory tone and the
anger. One gives, the other
reciprocates. The yin and
yang of all things. Indeed.
And then, with sleep
still in his eyes, he sees his
mother pick up a cushion
from the hallway couch
and toss it at his father who
deftly ducks and then, in
slow motion, the pillow
travels the length of the
living room and slams into
the Christmas tree.
Back and forth it rocks
before crashing to the
floor with the rapid, bullet-
like popping of the bulbs
and lights reverberating
throughout the room. And
then there is the silence,
which inevitably fol-
lows such scenes, of open
mouths and incredulous
expressions of regret.
I ended telling this
Christmas story to an awk-
ward silence, no doubt the
collective thinking was
"Just who in the hell in-
vited this person?" The men
squirmed a bit and some
of the women probably
thought, "Poor dear, prob-
ably crippled for life."
Not really. I quickly re-
placed the broken lights
and bulbs. And it became
family lore, of the night
mom and dad trashed
Chritty's tree! And life? It
does go on.
Merry Christmas folks!
To all of you! And may your
tree still stand at the end of
the day! Indeed.

Manatee deaths at
record high
As of Dec. 4, 91 manatees have been
killed by watercraft in Florida dur-
ing 2009, approaching the record
of 95 watercraft deaths set in 2002.
We could easily break this record in
the remaining two weeks of the year,
without a commitment from Florida
boaters to help prevent additional
deaths. Anecdotal reports indicate
that the economy has changed boat-
ing patterns, keeping boaters closer
to shore to save money on gas. Con-
centrating watercraft inshore, in the
same waters inhabited by manatees,
could help account for the rise in
mortalities, but this is not a necessary
outcome.
Each and every boater, through
careful boating practices and compli-
ance with speed zones, can greatly
reduce the number of manatee inju-
ries and deaths from boat strikes. We
are calling for boaters to slow down
in manatee habitat, obey the posted
speed zones, and immediately report


manatee injuries to the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion at 1-888-404-3922 so that a
timely rescue can be initiated and the
manatee can receive life-saving treat-
ment. Save the Manatee Club also of-
fers boaters and shoreline property
owners free boating banners and alu-
minum dock signs to remind fellow
boaters that manatees are present.
The welfare of individual mana-
tees thoroughly depends on boater
compliance with posted speed zones.
It's up to all of us to protect manatees
from unnecessary deaths caused by
a propeller blade or boat hull. It's a
simple call to action that carries life
or death consequences for our state's
iconic, endangered marine mammal.
We truly appreciate everybody's coop-
eration at this time.

Conservation

"You are entitled to your own opinions-
you are not entitled to your own facts"
Daniel Patrick Moynihan

Mr. Natale's
Christmas
(original fiction)

he day before Christ-
mas, Mr. Natale
stepped out onto his
sunny, palm-lined driveway.
A little boy was staring at
him from the sidewalk.
Mr. Natale walked slowly
over to the pale, motionless
lad, and said, "Well, sir, what
can I do for you?"
"I wanted to know if I
could fish in your lake."
"Well, I don't see why
not. You got any tackle?"
"There's a pole over
in our garage across the
street," said the lad.
"I haven't seen you
around before."
"No sir. We're leaving
tomorrow," said the boy.


Thursday, December 24, 2009 Page 9


"We're going back home."
"Why didn't you come to
see me before? I would have
taken you out on the lake
with me in my canoe."
"I was in the hospital the
whole time we were here."
"You all right now?"
"Yes, sir. They say I am."
"What was it?"
"A long name I can't say.
They gave me blood trans-
fusions. Chemotherapy too.
But I'm OK now."
"Well, I'm sure glad to
hear that," Mr. Natale said.
"By the way, I just had my
eyes done for cataracts -
but that's nothing to what
you must have had to put
up with."
The old man and the boy
walked down to the lake-
front.
"Where's the best place
to fish?" the boy asked.
"You'd best sit on the
end of the dock. Dig some
worms here on the shore.
There're some big bass
in there, nice bream too.
Bream are good eating."
"My Dad told me your
name is Mr. Natale. He said
you're a great singer."
"Did he now? Was, son -
was."
The old man squinted as
he looked across the lake.
"That was a long time be-
fore you were born."
"You don't sing anymore,
Mr. Natale?"
"No."
"Why not?"
"I got where I couldn't
do it anymore at least not
the way I wanted it to be."
"Why not?"
Mr. Natale looked down.
"I guess I just got old,
that's all."


The boy shaded his blue
eyes from the sun with his
hand as he looked across
the shimmering water.
"You could still sing great
now if you really wanted
to."
"You don't really think
that, do you?"
The boy looked up
quickly at Mr. Natale.
"Yes, I do. I know it."
"Well, we'll see... Now
you go have a good time...
and catch a fish."
When Mr. Natale walked
into the bank lobby he
didn't see anyone he knew
among the customers
standing in line.
"Morning, Dottie," he
said across the counter to a
tall redheaded teller.
"What can I do for you,
Mr. Natale?"
He laid a check on the
counter, and said, "I'd like
to cash this ..."
Suddenly Giuseppe Na-
tale's mouth opened wide
and began to sing.
The words, "Che gelida
manina..." came out as
clear and strong as they had
50 years ago, when he was
singing "La Boheme" in all
the great opera houses of
Europe.
His wrinkled hands ges-
tured gracefully while his
mouth sang the aria.
A ringing high C came
out at the end.
The people in the bank
stood transfixed for a mo-
ment.
Then they broke into
loud applause.
"Golly, that was really
something, Mr. Natale!"
Dottie said.
"Yes, wasn't it," said Mr.


Natale, smiling.
He ran the back of his
hand across his mouth.
"Now, would you cash
this little check for me,
Dottie?"
Later, Mr. Natale went
into the supermarket. He
walked down the aisles and
put a few things in his cart.
The cashier gave him her
usual smile.
"Mr. Natale, are you pay-
ing cash or by check?"
He said, "I'll pay ..."
Then Giuseppe Natale's
mouth began to sing "Ce-
leste Aida."
The people in the ca-
shiers' lines stared open-
mouthed as he ended on a
big B-flat, the way he used
to do it in Rome and Paris.
"Wow, Mr. Natale, I never
heard anything like that!"
The dark-eyed young
cashier and all the people
standing in line at the cash
registers clapped loudly.
"No, Rosie, I guess you
didn't ... But then, of course,
you've never... Say, there's
no price on this olive oil."
On the way home, Mr.
Natale stopped by the ser-
vice station to put gas in his
car.
Old Frank walked
around to the rear of the
car where Mr. Natale was
unscrewing the gas cap.
"Mr. Natale, want me to
check the oil for you?"
Mr. Natale said, "Thanks,
Frank. That would be very
..." And his mouth suddenly
launched into "La donna e
mobile" from "Rigoletto."
He held the high B at the
end as long as he had ever
held it when he was 35.
People pulled their cars


over to the curb and rolled
down the windows.
As he finished, horns
honked and people waved.
Giuseppe Natale spread
his arms and bowed low to
the halted traffic.
When Mr. Natale got
home, the little boy, fishing
pole in hand, was coming
up from the lake.
"I don't see any fish, my
friend."
"I caught some."
"Well, where are they?"
"I threw 'em back," said
the little boy.
"Don't you people eat
fish?"
The boy's blue eyes spar-
kled.
A big-toothed grin
spread across his thin face.
"Yes, sir. But I didn't want
to kill any fish, Mr. Natale.
I just hadn't ever caught
one before and I was sure
I could if I tried. I'm really
glad I did it."
Mr. Natale took the boy's
hand in his own and shook
it slowly.
"I wish you were going to
stick around. We'd do lots
of fishing."
"I wish so too, Mr. Na-
tale."
The next day Christ-
mas Day the family
across the street went back
up North.
More Christmases came

More Christmases went

But Mr. Natale's mouth
never again sang any songs.
