Page 9 Theyre tap dancing, singing, rocking some high kicks and short skirts, and not one of them is younger than 55. There are no rocking chairs, no long games of bridge or afternoon tea. What the Fab Follies have go ing on is something special, Direc tor Elizabeth Taylor says. She likes to think they break stereotypes for seniors, take what people imag ine they should be doing in their spare time and turn it on its head. You see people my age not doing anything that I can see to stimulate themselves or anybody troupe the Fab Follies does is give volunteers a way to continue to share their talents and time. They arent your average older crowd. Members of the group spend two afternoons a week at the Cassel berry Recreation Center sharp ening their singing, dancing and acting skills while rehearsing for their current show, The Best of Taylor said. The troupe was started in 1998 when Taylor was working for The Orlando Repertory Theatre. She noticed lots of grey hair in the crowd but not a single one on to her. You have to do something for the people who come to your And so the Fab Follies were born. She spent three seasons di recting them at The Rep and then moved to Casselberry in 2001. Her mission is to create great shows by seniors that appeal to seniors. And if you take a look, she said, theyll be interesting to a lot of younger people too. In their current show, theyll give patrons a taste of the past. The Vegas-style show features golden oldies to transport each person back to special moments from their younger days. And the troupe, which features about 30 members, both men and women, work the crowd for laughs. A few ladies give an alluring with hip sashays and seductive points to the audience. Miriam shes the oldest member at 87, spends rehearsal as an airhead dancer and slightly tipsy bar cus hilariously carried out by two her shenanigans. It makes me feel good about myself to be able to entertain peo del said. And that opportunity to per form, whether it be belting out a tune or tapping across a stage, is something that many of the mem bers didnt have at their age before the Follies began 14 years ago. I was looking for a group like Collins, a dancer and Taylors sec retary. Its something I was look And theyve really found a home with the Follies. Many past members who have retired from the troupe come back to watch the rehearsals and attend the shows. For them, this is a place to come and socialize, feel connected and get support. They all gain lifelong friends. For Taylor, who lost her husband and has two busy adult children, its a relief to know she can count on her group for any thing. My family has become this And every performer said it keeps them young and makes during those summer months when the group is on break from rehearsal and shows. When you have a purpose and something to look forward said. It gives such a sense of self ber Rita Schneider said. Ive learned you never say you cant do something as you get older They hope they can inspire other seniors to take life into their own hands, not sit still and take chances on new experiences or re live old ones. Audience feedback and the growth of their troupe has shown its been working, Tay lor said. For the younger people, they want to inspire them to value their seniors and be entertained. that they look up to the 87-yearold woman she is today. SENIOR VOICE THRIVE @ 55 AND BEYOND!

TALK tT O SANDI > EMPLOYMENT Ask Sandi The IRS claims to make taxpayer educa tion a priority. It conducts nationwide forums every year to educate tax prepar ers and tax pros on changes in the law and IRS procedure and its website is chock full of instructional articles and media. But there are many things the IRS doesnt want you to learn. 5. It wants to settle cases before they go to trial IRS attorneys are bur dened with large workloads. And it costs the government a lot of money to attend trial. The IRS tries to keep this secret be cause revealing it would give the taxpayer an edge in settlement negotiations. If the IRS knows youre ready to go to trial (i.e. you have an experienced tax lawyer on your tax team), you have a much greater chance of a favorable settlement.4. It doesnt want to seize your assets IRS collection agents love to make idle threats. And the threat to take your assets is one of their favorites. Again, enforced collection is expensive for the government. First, the act of identifying, locating, seizing and then selling an asset requires many hours of IRS employee labor, hours that could be spent collecting from other taxpayers. Second, the amounts the IRS gets when it sells seized assets is usually only a small fraction of the assets fair market value. account because it is relatively easy to do and there is no need for a subsequent auction. If you ignore the IRS long enough, it will attempt to garnish your wages.3. wrong answer more than 30 percent of the time Theyd love to keep this one a secret, but they cant. Oh, and if you get the wrong answer from the IRS agent, you cant later rely on it to avoid an accuracy-related penalty unless its been are instructed not to give written advice. Even a seemingly benign question like where to mail a particular tax form could result in a wrong answer.2. Entry-level auditors and collection agents do not have tax backgrounds But as anyone who has ever you, this lack of expertise does not stop ers as to what the taxpayer should do to resolve the problem. to taxpayers and regularly misstate the law. They often say whatever they believe will most likely get the taxpayer to pay. 1. The squeaky wheel gets the oil This does not mean that if you have a frivolous or irrational position the IRS will let you win. What it does mean is that if you have a colorable argument and present it with supporting documentation and legal precedent, the IRS will often grant you the relief you are requesting. A good taxpayer representative will exhaust all administrative remedies available to obtain relief for his client. Peter Pappas is a tax attorney and Certied Public Accountant.

By mid-afternoon, the trucks, trailers, boats, motorcycles and vehicles of all descriptions threatening storms could keep folks from gathering to support two great charities and from devouring some excellent home cooking. If I could draw community it would be a lot like what I saw at the Jolly Gator Fish Camp last weekend. It was a wonderful blend of babies human and piglet puppies, chickens, veterans, bikers, local leaders, grandparents, teens on cell phones and kids bouncing about. Not to mention a lovely girl with a sweet goat. The ice-cold beer kept internal temperatures in check and the soothing and sassy sounds of country we heard the piercing cry of eagles and saw the silent scan of vultures soaring over the river. The growl of airboat motors was to be expected at amazing, and seriously it was impos the most delectable of comfort food. The fellowship and fun of this type of event softens the brutal fact that almost everyone has been touched in some way by cancer or diabetes. Those stories run deep. In the midst of aluminum trays of baked beans, bowls of coleslaw, crock pots of cue and pie, the community came together to laugh, eat, sing and give back to big causes. Although our gardens can be grown year round in Central Florida, if I had to choose, summer would be considered my tions to easily generate a crop at this time of year bestows a whole extra dimension to the gardening experience. I would like to share a few successes from my garden that have provided a harvest even in the depths of our tropical recess. French sorrel (Rumex scutatus) grows all year as a leafy salad herb. It produces well in containers under mottled shade in the summers heat, and a light blanket during the worst of winters cold. Sorrel leaves are very tender, so no wonder it is rarely availcreated by an abundance of oxalic acid, so limited quantities are all that is needed to add a sparkle to any salad, sauce or soup. Grazing on the leaves fresh in the garden is a quick thirst quencher or energy boost. Fresh from the Cuisinart, my garden pesto recipe of basil, garlic chives, sorrel, cheese, olive oil and nuts is my favorite use. Garlic chives (Allium tuberosum) do is milder and sweeter than the garlic we are most familiar with, but as I mentioned in my garden pesto recipe, a wonderful herbal food. Most uses are related to oriental cuisine, although it could be adapted to most garlic formulations. It is easily started from seeds or divided root clumps. As with the sorrel, I grow pots of garlic chives under an orange tree with some protection during winter. I occasionally set a pot of it out for my chickens, but have not detected Dandelion greens (Cichorium intybus or mess of greens. Whether selecting the tute European red variety, the whole plants are edible. Cultivated from seed, dandetime. As with the previously mentioned crops, I grow this green in dappled shade. Used in antipasto, its bitterness encourages salivation as an aid to digestion. For all of these, harvest by snipping individual leaves, but not the growing crowns. I fertilize monthly with compost, for random grasshoppers, pest problems are non-existent.

A doctor told Smith that shed never walk again because her MS was preventing her from over coming the paralyzing medica tion, and that she should get used to the idea of being in a wheel chair for the rest of her life.

Page 9 Theyre tap dancing, singing, rocking some high kicks and short skirts, and not one of them is younger than 55. There are no rocking chairs, no long games of bridge or afternoon tea. What the Fab Follies have go ing on is something special, Direc tor Elizabeth Taylor says. She likes to think they break stereotypes for seniors, take what people imag ine they should be doing in their spare time and turn it on its head. You see people my age not doing anything that I can see to stimulate themselves or anybody troupe the Fab Follies does is give volunteers a way to continue to share their talents and time. They arent your average older crowd. Members of the group spend two afternoons a week at the Cassel berry Recreation Center sharp ening their singing, dancing and acting skills while rehearsing for their current show, The Best of Taylor said. The troupe was started in 1998 when Taylor was working for The Orlando Repertory Theatre. She noticed lots of grey hair in the crowd but not a single one on to her. You have to do something for the people who come to your And so the Fab Follies were born. She spent three seasons di recting them at The Rep and then moved to Casselberry in 2001. Her mission is to create great shows by seniors that appeal to seniors. And if you take a look, she said, theyll be interesting to a lot of younger people too. In their current show, theyll give patrons a taste of the past. The Vegas-style show features golden oldies to transport each person back to special moments from their younger days. And the troupe, which features about 30 members, both men and women, work the crowd for laughs. A few ladies give an alluring with hip sashays and seductive points to the audience. Miriam shes the oldest member at 87, spends rehearsal as an airhead dancer and slightly tipsy bar cus hilariously carried out by two her shenanigans. It makes me feel good about myself to be able to entertain peo del said. And that opportunity to per form, whether it be belting out a tune or tapping across a stage, is something that many of the mem bers didnt have at their age before the Follies began 14 years ago. I was looking for a group like Collins, a dancer and Taylors sec retary. Its something I was look And theyve really found a home with the Follies. Many past members who have retired from the troupe come back to watch the rehearsals and attend the shows. For them, this is a place to come and socialize, feel connected and get support. They all gain lifelong friends. For Taylor, who lost her husband and has two busy adult children, its a relief to know she can count on her group for any thing. My family has become this And every performer said it keeps them young and makes during those summer months when the group is on break from rehearsal and shows. When you have a purpose and something to look forward said. It gives such a sense of self ber Rita Schneider said. Ive learned you never say you cant do something as you get older They hope they can inspire other seniors to take life into their own hands, not sit still and take chances on new experiences or re live old ones. Audience feedback and the growth of their troupe has shown its been working, Tay lor said. For the younger people, they want to inspire them to value their seniors and be entertained. that they look up to the 87-yearold woman she is today. SENIOR VOICE THRIVE @ 55 AND BEYOND!

It doesnt want to seize your as sets IRS collection agents love to make idle threats. And the threat to take your assets is one of their favorites. Again, enforced collection is expen sive for the government. First, the act of identifying, locating, seizing and then selling an asset requires many hours of IRS employee labor, hours that could be spent collecting from other taxpayers. Second, the amounts the IRS gets when it sells seized assets is usually only a small fraction of the assets fair market value. account because it is relatively easy to do and there is no need for a subsequent auc tion. If you ignore the IRS long enough, it will attempt to garnish your wages. 3. wrong answer more than 30 percent of the time Theyd love to keep this one a secret, but they cant. Oh, and if you get the wrong answer from the IRS agent, you cant later rely on it to avoid an accuracy-related penalty unless its been are instructed not to give written advice. Even a seemingly benign question like where to mail a particular tax form could result in a wrong answer. 2. Entry-level auditors and collection agents do not have tax back grounds But as anyone who has ever you, this lack of expertise does not stop ers as to what the taxpayer should do to resolve the problem. to taxpayers and regularly misstate the law. They often say whatever they believe will most likely get the taxpayer to pay. 1. The squeaky wheel gets the oil This does not mean that if you have a frivolous or irrational position the IRS will let you win. What it does mean is that if you have a colorable argument and present it with supporting documentation and legal precedent, the IRS will often grant you the relief you are requesting. A good taxpayer representative will exhaust all administrative remedies available to obtain relief for his client. Peter Pappas is a tax attorney and Certied Public Accountant.

I remember when I was at a dinner my daughters elementary school cooking class had put together. Artwork was dis played on the wall that really showcased how amazing the students at this school were well above their grade levels. Then it happened I heard parents sitting there thinking, my daughter has the Milky Way, am I the one expected to do this? How will she compete? We are in an age when teachers (and professors) are complaining about helicopter parenting. Parents are getting involved in their kids education, above and beyond where it is healthy to do so.

The A thought The great thing in this world is not so much where we stand as in what direction we are days of lower humidity ushered in a slight break from the summer heat. As September wraps up, what better way to celebrate fall than to hang out at the corner of First and Main at the Rural Heritage Center.

Community supports causes at Jolly Gator What can we say about Mary Con solato and her crew and colleagues at the Jolly Gator Fish Camp? What impresses us more? The arms-wideopen generosity, the beautiful loca tion, the consistent hard work, the fantastic live music or the delicious food? This team consistently hosts fundraisers for key causes and last Saturday was yet another one The Butts, Beans, Cole Slaw and Pie Cook Society and the American Diabetes Association. By mid-afternoon, the trucks, trailers, boats, motorcycles and vehicles of all descriptions threatening storms could keep folks from gathering to support two great charities and from devouring some excellent home cooking. If I could draw community it would be a lot like what I saw at the Jolly Gator Fish Camp last weekend. It was a wonderful blend of babies human and piglet puppies, chick ens, veterans, bikers, local leaders, grandparents, teens on cell phones and kids bouncing about. Not to mention a lovely girl with a sweet goat. The ice-cold beer kept internal temperatures in check and the sooth ing and sassy sounds of country we heard the piercing cry of eagles and saw the silent scan of vultures soaring over the river. The growl of airboat motors was to be expected at amazing, and seriously it was impos the most delectable of comfort food. The fellowship and fun of this type of event softens the brutal fact that almost everyone has been touched in some way by cancer or diabetes. Those stories run deep. In the midst of aluminum trays of baked beans, bowls of coleslaw, crock pots of cue and pie, the community came together to laugh, eat, sing and give back to big causes. Although our gardens can be grown year round in Central Florida, if I had to choose, summer would be considered my tions to easily generate a crop at this time of year bestows a whole extra di mension to the gardening experience. I would like to share a few successes from my garden that have provided a harvest even in the depths of our tropical recess. French sorrel (Rumex scutatus) grows all year as a leafy salad herb. It produces well in containers under mottled shade in the summers heat, and a light blanket during the worst of winters cold. Sorrel leaves are very tender, so no wonder it is rarely avail created by an abundance of oxalic acid, so limited quantities are all that is needed to add a sparkle to any salad, sauce or soup. Grazing on the leaves fresh in the garden is a quick thirst quencher or energy boost. Fresh from the Cuisinart, my garden pesto recipe of basil, garlic chives, sorrel, cheese, olive oil and nuts is my favorite use. Garlic chives (Allium tuberosum) do is milder and sweeter than the garlic we are most familiar with, but as I mentioned in my garden pesto recipe, a wonderful herbal food. Most uses are related to orien tal cuisine, although it could be adapted to most garlic formulations. It is easily started from seeds or divided root clumps. As with the sorrel, I grow pots of garlic chives under an orange tree with some protection during winter. I occasionally set a pot of it out for my chickens, but have not detected Dandelion greens (Cichorium intybus or mess of greens. Whether selecting the tute European red variety, the whole plants are edible. Cultivated from seed, dande time. As with the previously mentioned crops, I grow this green in dappled shade. Used in antipasto, its bitterness encourages salivation as an aid to digestion. For all of these, harvest by snipping individual leaves, but not the growing crowns. I fertilize monthly with compost, for random grasshoppers, pest problems are non-existent. Seeds may be purchased from numerous mail order sources, or plants are available through my Sundew Gardens.
