But while the mothers chat amongst themselves, Fatmah Demirhan hears a blur. Theres a barrier between them that none of the women can see, though theyre surely aware of it. She can hear them, but only in pieces. She can speak, but only in an elementary schoolers English. Originally from Ankara, Tur key, Fatmah, her husband, Cihan, and her sons, Ertugrul and Kadir Kaan, have been in the United States since December 2011, mov ing to Orlando so Cihan can earn his Ph.D. in public administra tion at the University of Central Florida. Like many people, Fatmah came to live in the United States without knowing the English lan guage, a situation that has made Though she and her family will only be in the country temporarily while her husband earns his de gree, Fatmah wants to meet new people in this unfamiliar country. We will be here for three years, and I want to communi cate with people; I want to know people, Fatmah said. Without English, its impossible. Though she can read, write and understand English, Fatmah is still learning to speak the lan guage, often relying on her hus band to translate for her. In an American and communicate free ly, Fatmah takes language classes at Winter Park Tech and plans to do volunteer work as a school teachers assistant to force herself to speak. People dont want to be around me too much, because without speaking, they are bored, Fatmah said. People, since they are bored, they dont want to be together with people who dont know English. It makes know English. Fatmahs situation isnt un common. According to estimates from the U.S. Census Bureaus 2011 American Community Sur vey, 21,545 of the 424,071 people who live in Seminole County speak English less than very well, revealing a language bar population. Five miles north of Fatmah Demirhan lives Sarojben Patel, who emigrated from India with her husband, Chandrakant, only six months ago. Sarojben points at pic tures to com municate and also relies on translation from her hus band, who has lived in the United States since 1981. Instead of a temporary stay, Sarojben hopes to call the United States her new home and become a citizen when she is eligible in three years. With ing a requirement for citizenship, Sarojben is driven to learn. English is the main language for my life, because I want to stay here my whole life, Sarojben said. It is most important to learn English.

Page 4 This is what one diner wrote about Caf Panuzzos in Oviedo: I have lived in Oviedo for 15 years. This is the restaurant we have been praying and waiting for. The food is excellent (all of it). The prices are right. The service enough to get me to Panuzzos, and the great news is, I agree with everything this person said. Panuzzos is a family-owned quality Italian food from a huge selection of menu items rang ing from salads and pizzas to delicious seafood items. The chef used to oversee the kitchen of the The Cheesecake Factory, and he carried over that big-menu tradition to his own restaurant. That gives you some idea of how choose from at Panuzzos. And fact that ingredients are going to be fresh and locally purchased when possible. My dining partner and I got to work, and tasted as many items as any person could and still walk out of the restaurant. At its best, real Italian food is com fort food for our families and us and that is exactly what you watching families with lots of kids enjoying their night out at the restaurant. The waiters were spot-on with how they handled these young clients keeping them happy while respecting them and their choices as individuals. Of the appetizers, we familyshared the caprese salad, which earns its place on any menu based on very good mozzarella cheese. Panuzzos mozzarella is of the highest quality worth mentioning as the chef uses mozzarella in a lot of dishes. We also tried the calamari lightly breaded and cooked to perfection in quality oil but the winner for both of us was the escargot. In all its buttery richness, and with annoying shells, the escargot was presented with the perfect amount of garlic and melted mozzarella making each bite a singular delight. (Highly recom mended) Moving on to the entrees, the eggplant parmigiana was once again lightly breaded and deli cious with subtle spicing that lin gers on the tongue. My personal favorite is the Chicken Madeira, which is a chicken breast topped with portabella mushrooms in a perfectly composed Madeira wine sauce with all that good ness served over linguine. I was consistently impressed with the presentation the fact that menu items like this are built beginning with perfectly cooked spaghettis. While trying to leave room for more, I kept returning to the pasta from this dish in that wonderful Madeira sauce. Major yum. Content in knowing the pastas would be perfectly cooked with priate to the item they served & Turf menu was an it-justgets-better scallops in Alfredo sauce. Starting with a perfectly pan-seared scallop (an art form of its own) and served with that creamy, buttery Alfredo sauce, this dish was summed up by my dining partner as excellent. And while I love an Alfredo sauce, my recommendation goes with the Shrimps Tuscany, which is served with an equally creamy and spicier sauce that shows to work. Add diced bacon to the tastes of garlic, spinach and shal lots, and that is one great sauce. Needless to say we had no room for the restaurants bounti ful, family-style desserts, but our server would not let us leave without tasting the Earthquake Cake, and I will be forever grate ful for that inside information. Its chocolate over chocolate over late at that. It more than pleased this crazed chocaholic. If you can save room for dessert, you to try this unbelievable sweet thing. And if youve read this far, appetizer with each entre for the month of December when you mention the Voice and tell them Josh sent me.

Celebrating Life, Family and the Power of HopeTHE POWER OF HOPE Is the Strength to Begin Again -Andy Akins May the God of hope ll you with joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may over ow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit -Romans 15:13McCoy Federal Credit Union Offers Financial Counseling to All Members Tools to Build a Better Financial FutureImagine someone sitting down with you and giving you personalized guidance when it comes to your nances. McCoy Federal Credit Union offers just that. Financial counseling is offered free to all members through Accel, McCoys personal money management partner. The program, developed by GreenPath Debt Solutions, helps members with everything from learning how to manage a checking account for the rst time to buying a house. This is a chance for members of McCoy to receive free, impartial advice from an experienced, professional credit counselor who will treat you with respect and compassion. Financial counseling sessions are focused entirely on a members concerns and are conducted over the phone. Members of McCoy are not limited in the number of sessions, and after the initial counseling session a member will receive a detailed budget worksheet and action plan. The Counselor will thoroughly assess a members household income and expenses, nd places to save, and develop a customized budget and action plan to help achieve a members nancial goals. The initial counseling session usually lasts 60 minutes and can be done over the phone at a time that is convenient: One of the objectives of the nancial counseling session is to build an accurate budget and create a clear picture of how the member currently spends their money. The next step is to determine what changes the member could make in their personal budget to help them achieve their nancial goals. The more accurate the information the member can provide the more productive the counseling session tends to be. So having pay slips, details of household expenses along with credit statements can really help, says Catherine Wall, Partner Relations Specialist, GreenPath, Inc. No need to jump into buying a house before rst nding out what you can afford. We do Pre-purchase Housing Counseling to help the member prepare for home ownership; the member can then make an informed decision before committing to buy a home, says Wall. Counselors can help save members money, too. A late fee on your credit report may seem like a small issue, but if that late fee impacts your credit score that fee can cost you in higher car insurance rates or a higher car payment, for example, says Wall. Members can take advantage of a Credit Report Review; the counselor will help the member evaluate their credit report, learn to dispute inaccurate information, and provide guidance to help the member improve their credit score. We encourage members to go to www.annualcreditreport.com where they can receive a free copy of their report once a year from the three main credit reporting companies, says Wall. Accel counselors want to help the member get value from every dollar they earn and spend. For those members that are struggling and out on a nancial limb, the counselor can help the member put an action plan in place to help address their nancial dif culty before the branch breaks! Wall says. Next month, learn ways McCoy helps you teach your children about scal responsibility. From allowances, giving, spending, goals and savings! Small changes make a big difference. Thats why, coming into the holiday season, were bringing you inspirational editorials that can help shake things up in your life. From revamping your nances to nding time for yourself coming into a very busy season, we want to offer hope, help and some uplifting advice. We also want to hear from you. Do you have a comment on any of our editorials? Any question youd like to see our counselors answer? You can nd us on Facebook and our website, www.OurLifeToday.Org.

Make a holiday priority list and post it. Keep the list short; you cant prioritize everyone or everything. Believe it or not the rst thing on this list should be YOU. I know it sounds sel sh but if you are not taking care of yourself you will not be able to serve and love others well. Dont forget to refer to the list throughout the season. 2. Take care of yourself physically. This goes hand in hand with prioritizing yourself. Usually when things get stressful we do the complete opposite of what will help us. Make sure youre getting enough sleep, REM sleep is especially important to emotional health. Exercise and balance what youre eating and drinking. Indulging too much can impair your ability to handle stress. 3. Say No. Weve all felt the pressure to volunteer here, or attend a party there, but lets be honest, you cant do it all and remain sane. Allow yourself the freedom to say no. Determine now, how many parties or functions youll attend and stick to it. Then come up with creative ways to send your regrets, perhaps with some holiday cookies--it will help the no go down easier. 4. Schedule time for yourself. As you schedule your holiday season, make sure to include down time for you. Do what energizes you during this time, and be intentional. Read a book, journal, have some quiet time. Youll be tempted to ll this time with tasks, but if you can refrain youll be more energized to tackle the list later. 5. Re ect. Dont lose sight of what is really important this time of year. Start every day off with some re ection and prayer. Beginning your day focused on God remembering why we celebrate and giving thanks will help put the rest of the day into perspective.Remember this time of year does not have to be exhausting emotionally and physi cally. By implementing these tools you can nd yourself not just going through the motions but really enjoying this time of year. By Julia Jancek The countdown to Thanksgiving has begun! Ive nished decorating and I cant seem to get enough of the cinnamon-apple-pumpkin pie smell so Im lighting candles everywhere. I love this time of year, well if Im being honest I mostly love this time of year. I think for most of us the Holidays are a good idea in theory. We go into them excited, ready for family, food and fun, but somewhere between Thanksgiving and Christmas most of us wind up exhausted, frustrated and searching for a place to hide. If we take a step back, however, and go into the holidays with some intention, we can give ourselves the emotional strength needed to deal with the craziness and the calm to really enjoy what theyre all about. Here are 5 tips for a sane holiday season.Holidays with Family: This year, both sets of in-laws are visiting our home for the holidays. It will be an occasion for celebration and good cheer, unless the conversation turns to the recent national election. In that case, well be cleaning pumpkin pie off the walls. Seasonal family gatherings may be a mixed bag for you. On one hand, you look forward to these reunions while, on the other, you dread their tensions. Here are some common frustrations: Combined with the physical exhaustion, nancial strain, and seasonal depression that often accompany this time of year, its no wonder that family events often cause more anxiety than anticipation. If this scenario is familiar to you, let me give you some hope. You have more control over these experiences than you may realize. Your family holidays will become more pleasurable if you follow these four steps: De ne your limits ahead of time. Write out all of the seasonal obligations you think you have: gifts to buy, food to prepare, services to provide, days to share, etc. Now consider how much of your time and money you can honestly spend and still remain content, healthy, and secure. If youre married, discuss this with your spouse. Once youve de ned your limits, write them down and take control by determining to live within these limits. Within your limits, focus on giving. Now that youve established some boundaries, go through the list of every family member youll be with and consider ways you can make the family time good for them. Be a relationship Santa. Decide what gifts of word or deed you can give to each person. Make a list. And, yes, you can even give to the ones who have been naughty. If you do this, you will be acting with intentional sel essness. If done sincerely, you will likely notice a signi cant shift in your attitude and experience pleasure in each act of giving. Ask for help. If you nd yourself feeling overwhelmed or tired, ask for help. Dont accept the role of saint or martyr. If nobody is available or willing to help, consider leaving some things undone. You may be spending a great deal of energy on tasks that really arent that important. What good is insisting on the perfect decorations, meals, or other accommodations if your are left exhausted or resentful? Change one thing. Established traditions may often include routines you do simply because they have always been done that way. They have become social habits. As you go through another holiday, watch for those practices that have become commonplace, even though they do not strengthen or satisfy the family. If you recognize any of these, pick at least one, write it out on your calendar, and determine to change it next year.Keep them Festive NOT Frustrating!Prior to earning his Masters Degree in Counseling from Indiana Wesleyan University, Tim spent nearly 20 years as a leader and teacher, focusing on spiritual and personal growth issues for individuals and families.

Titanic descendant preserves his story Hes often thought about what his grandmother might have been thinking on that black, freezing night, holding her precious boy in a lifeboat in the middle of the ocean. How shed lost her hus band, that this might even be the end for them, and how she could possibly comfort her son with the screams and cries all around them. It was haunting, and it was a story she had kept to herself for many, many years. Emily Goldsmith and her son Frank Frankie Goldsmith were two of the few survivors of the sinking of the Titanic. There were 2,300 people on that boat, 705 survived and two of them are my family, Frank Goldsmith Jr. said. His father and grandmother survived, but his grandfather went down with the ship. Now Goldsmith Jr. shares his familys story. The Altamonte Springs resident has told the ent people, ranging from middle school students and civic groups to audiences in libraries. Hes also recorded his familys story onto DVD, which he sells on his web site. He holds people in the palm of his hand when he speaks, said friend Leo Revi, who has seen Frank speak many times. The audience is quiet and listens to his every word. Franks family grandmoth er, grandfather and his father, who was just 9 years old at the time were third-class passengers on the grand ship, and their story is one that hasnt been told much, he said. They were in search of a new life in the United States, and the unsinkable ship was supposed to be their ticket to the American dream. Instead, they survived a nearly unspeakable night of trag edies. When I grew up, we didnt talk about this, Frank said. It was so horrible, the memories, that we couldnt talk about it. But one day, his grandmother telling Frank in incredible detail what she saw that night. Emily died soon after, and Frank is sure she somehow knew she needed to share their familys story before she wasnt there anymore. She needed someone to pass it on, to teach others. Later, his father was persuaded to tell his version, from the eyes and memory of a 9-yearold boy. Franks son John Gold smith remembers neighborhood kids surrounding him on the porch to hear of the adventures his family had on the Titanic. The Goldsmith story They boarded the boat with the highest of spirits, and little Frankie, as he was called then, immediately found a group of other young boys who he always called his posse when he told the story. They explored the ship from tip to tip, even entering the area where workers sang to the rhythm of their coal shoveling. The men smoked and played cards, the women crocheted and chatted. The hum of the engine was all around them, a reminder of their move to a new life. But on April 14, 1912, the reassuring buzz of the engines stopped. They felt no impact, they heard or felt nothing, Frank said. But suddenly it was quiet. A knock at the door revealed that something had happened and they needed to head to their emergency stations with their life vests on. But no one was worried, it was the unsinkable Titanic, after all. They calmly took their places, eventually separating Frankie and his mom, Emily, from father Frank. Dad kissed mom goodbye and tousled little Frankies hair with a comforting So long, Frankie. Ill see you later. But he wouldnt see him ever again. Emily and her son got into a lifeboat, pushed as far away as they could, and Em ily clutched Frankie into her, hop ing to block the sights and sounds that would come next. There was a loud roar and the ship broke in half, Frank said. All you saw was this great dark shape in the sky, and then it went down. They were rescued the next morning, but Franks grandfather lost his life. Emily and Frankie moved to Detroit near their fam ily and did create their life in America, but they never forgot what happened on the Titanic. Their home was near the Tigers stadium, and each time a home run was hit, theyd cringe at the roar of the crowd, that sounded so much like the cries they heard as the ship went down. John has listened to his father Frank tell their story, and it still resonates with him each time he hears it. Its still very compelling to lis ten to its very moving, John said. One day, John will be the one to share the personal history, Frank hopes. John said he can do it. I grew up with it, John said. I know it by heart. Residents father and grandmother survived the sinking of the ship BRITTNI JOHNSON The Voice PHOTO BY BRITTNI JOHNSON THE VOICE Frank Goldsmith Jr. holds a model of the famed Titanic. His father and grandpar ents were immigrating to America to start a new life when the ship sank. His grand father died after his father, then age 9, and grandmother were ushered into a lifeboat. Frank Goldsmith shares his story whenever he can, and has done so at schools, community gatherings, libraries and club meetings.

Most of them go to a doctor who speaks their own language, but what if they have to go to the emergency room? LaBalbo said.

Kennedy was fatally shot while riding in a motorcade in Dallas, President Lyndon Johnson establishes a special commission to investigate the assassination. After 10 months the Warren Commission report was released, concluding that there was no conspiracy. We asked kids at Wee the People Preschool in Sanford what they are thankful for. I am thankful for Miss Deanna my teacher because she makes me feel happy. I am also thankful for my school because we play and learn and have birthday parties here. I like turkey. Aiyanna C. 4 years old I am thankful for Barney and Spongebob Squarepants. Spongebob is a sponge and he is funny and lives under the sea. Barney and Spongebob make me feel better. Jack H. 4 years old I am thankful for my family, my mom and dad, and also my black dog, Eva. My mom cooks and plays with me. My dad gives me a kiss before I go to school. My family loves me. Precious B. 5 years old I am thankful for little and big cars. I can play with little cars on the carpet. Racing cars make noise. I am also thankful for spiders because they make webs and climb on trees and in forests. Brylie H. 5 years old I am thankful for trees, flowers, my family and Miss Deanna, the best teacher in the whole world. I like to pick flowers and give them to Mommy, Daddy and Miss Deanna. I like red, green and purple flowers. Haylee R. 4 years old Lately I have been hearing about people who are missing job opportunities because they are waiting to apply, not checking e-mail or just not following up. I recently saw a Facebook post by a friend asking another friend if they received their email about a job. He responded that he had and would reply later. Not the best impression in my book. Employers often complain that people are not following up or are not showing up. If the opportunity presents itself, you have to take it. Employers are looking be high performers. If you are slacking on the response, they think you are not interested in the job. The unwritten rule on referrals is to get your resume and cover letter out within 24 hours, if possible. If someone is waiting on your e-mail to set an ap pointment, they may get impatient if you take too long. On another note, if someone has referred you and it takes a week or two for you to follow up, they may forget what you were applying for. This happened with one of my refer rals recently. I received an email from the person I referred them to asking me what position it was for. Embarrassing! The job market is very competitive. a hot referral. Take action as soon as pos sible and you will increase your chances of landing the job. Bad things happen. Good people want to help. When Elise was going through radia tion treatments against a rampant cancer, her large circle of friends overwhelmed how to help, they brought food. The Mid westerners created casseroles. The expatri ate New Yorkers brought enough deli food the energy to orchestrate her needs and all the if she could, she wasnt very good at asking for help. A friend set up a private, personalized calendar to match needs and help on a free web site called LotsaHelping Hands.com. The website coordinator would post what Elise needed rides to and from treatments, visits, supplies from the pharmacy, and cleaning out the refrigera of friends signed up for the days and tasks matic reminder messages to the helpful volunteers. Everyone shared the load, so the plenty of helping hands created a web of support without overtaxing anyone. Everyone knew what he or she was doing met a need. The announcement feature on LotsaHelpingHands.com broadcasted updates on Elises status. Another challenge for families facing a for sharing updates and news, good and bad, about the medical journey back to health. The family of a Winter Park man who was severely injured in an accident is passionate about Caring Bridge (www. CaringBridge.org), the free online commu nication program. Family and friends are naturally concerned and want to express good wishes and get updates. Com ing home from a long tough day in the hospital with the hope of a hot bath and some sleep to take away the nightmare, family members instinctively feel a surge of dreaded fear of bad news whenever the phone rings, even if it turns out to be a well-intended phone call from family or friends. On Caring Bridge, everyone is engaged with updates and supportive messages but its not intrusive. This single source of information avoids misinforma tion of the complex situation and rumors. The local familys entries in Caring Bridge not only give updates, but also share a beautiful testimony of love, hope and faith. In both websites, the coordinator sets up a private website and controls who can their central purpose. CaringBridge.org, with donation support, bridges commu nication needs, with an additional task support function. LotsaHelpingHands. com coordinates help and needs, with an additional caring communication feature. The tie among us all is our humanness and how we care for one another. The websites make coordination easier, but it is our humanness that makes the caring.

Historical credit points toward the magazine editor of Godeys Ladys Book, 74-year-old Sarah Josepha Hale, who had petitioned former U.S. presidents for nearly 15 years to declare one national day of Thanksgiving. The timing teresting considering the country was in the middle of a terrible Civil War. According to the writings of Abraham Lincoln, Secretary of State William Seward penned the Thanksgiving Proclamation on connection to William Seward because Geneva native Lewis Thornton Powell attempted to assassinate Seward. Fortunately he did not succeed, and Thorn ton was hanged for his crime. Thorntons head is buried in the Geneva Cemetery his body remains missing to this day. One often overlooked monu pilgrims is an impressive 81-foot granite sculpture located on the summit of Monument Hill in Plymouth, Mass.

Each of these four statues is accompanied by two additional Peace with Liberty, Prophet and Evangelist accompany Moral ity, Justice and Mercy with Law, while Youth and Wisdom accom pany Education.

Visi tors from around the world pay homage to the ideals and virtues that the pilgrims brought from England and chose to use as the foundation of their lives in the new land called America. pilgrims. Disease, death, lack of food and supplies, sickness, and all took their toll on the Puritans. Who knows what truly happened drove the surviving pilgrims to stay and endure the hardships rather than return to England? Fast forward nearly 250 years plunged into a terrible Civil War. Yet despite this national hard ship, President Lincoln saw the giving thanks for the blessings they still had. Now, in our present day, unemployment, super storms, uncertain economic future, we are more fortunate than most peoples on Earth. We continue to be thankful for freedom, diversity, community, education, history, nature, family, neighbors and our unique home, the Village of Geneva.

Studying micro-organisms used in the numerous types of food processing and preservation techniques not only harks back to high school biology, but conveys a contemporary cultural under standing that seems to be wear ing thin these day. Pac choi Asian cabbage is growing very well in my garden this year, and what better way to preserve it than studying and making Korean Kimchi? Probiotic preservation, such as brine pickling of garden vegetables similar to making Ger man sauerkraut, leads to a sense of accomplishment and an eco nomically full belly. (Dont even get me started on home brewing beer and wine!) Over the course of the day, I drink about 2 ounces of Kom tea because I like it, not expect With pasteurization as the touted standard for our nations food supply, toying with live microbes could be considered anarchy. But really, it has been only our last three generations of the entire human species that eats such a sterile diet. And look where that is getting us! Kombucha tea another fad?

Page 3 Behind the clubhouse of the Tradition at Alafaya apart ments in Oviedo, women sit around tables next to the neighborhood swimming pool and wait for the school bus to bring their children back from Evans Elemen tary School. But while the mothers chat amongst themselves, Fatmah Demirhan hears a blur. Theres a barrier between them that none of the women can see, though theyre surely aware of it. She can hear them, but only in pieces. She can speak, but only in an elementary schoolers English. Originally from Ankara, Tur key, Fatmah, her husband, Cihan, and her sons, Ertugrul and Kadir Kaan, have been in the United States since December 2011, moving to Orlando so Cihan can earn his Ph.D. in public administra tion at the University of Central Florida. Like many people, Fatmah came to live in the United States without knowing the English language, a situation that has made Though she and her family will only be in the country temporarily while her husband earns his de gree, Fatmah wants to meet new people in this unfamiliar country. We will be here for three years, and I want to communi cate with people; I want to know people, Fatmah said. Without English, its impossible. Though she can read, write and understand English, Fatmah is still learning to speak the lan guage, often relying on her hus band to translate for her. In an American and communicate freely, Fatmah takes language classes at Winter Park Tech and plans to do volunteer work as a school teachers assistant to force herself to speak. People dont want to be around me too much, because without speaking, they are bored, Fatmah said. People, since they are bored, they dont want to be together with people who dont know English. It makes know English. Fatmahs situation isnt uncommon. According to estimates from the U.S. Census Bureaus 2011 American Community Sur vey, 21,545 of the 424,071 people who live in Seminole County speak English less than very well, revealing a language bar population. Five miles north of Fatmah Demirhan lives Sarojben Patel, who emigrated from India with her husband, Chandrakant, only six months ago. Sarojben points at pic tures to com municate and also relies on translation from her hus band, who has lived in the United States since 1981. Instead of a temporary stay, Sarojben hopes to call the United States her new home and become a citizen when she is eligible in three years. With ing a requirement for citizenship, Sarojben is driven to learn. English is the main language for my life, because I want to stay here my whole life, Sarojben said. It is most important to learn English. After learning the language, Sarojben also plans to learn how to drive and will eventually pur THIS WEEK in human history Dec. 3, 1947 Marlon Brandos famous cry of Stella! first booms across a Broadway stage, electrifying the audience at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre during the first-ever performance of Tennessee Williams play A Streetcar Named Desire.

Page 4 This is what one diner wrote about Caf Panuzzos in Oviedo: I have lived in Oviedo for 15 years. This is the restaurant we have been praying and waiting for. The food is excellent (all of it). The prices are right. The service enough to get me to Panuzzos, and the great news is, I agree with everything this person said. Panuzzos is a family-owned quality Italian food from a huge selection of menu items ranging from salads and pizzas to delicious seafood items. The chef used to oversee the kitchen of the The Cheesecake Factory, and he carried over that big-menu tradition to his own restaurant. That gives you some idea of how choose from at Panuzzos. And fact that ingredients are going to be fresh and locally purchased when possible. My dining partner and I got to work, and tasted as many items as any person could and still walk out of the restaurant. At its best, real Italian food is comfort food for our families and us and that is exactly what you watching families with lots of kids enjoying their night out at the restaurant. The waiters were spot-on with how they handled these young clients keeping them happy while respecting them and their choices as individuals. Of the appetizers, we familyshared the caprese salad, which earns its place on any menu based on very good mozzarella cheese. Panuzzos mozzarella is of the highest quality worth mentioning as the chef uses mozzarella in a lot of dishes. We also tried the calamari lightly breaded and cooked to perfection in quality oil but the winner for both of us was the escargot. In all its buttery richness, and with annoying shells, the escargot was presented with the perfect amount of garlic and melted mozzarella making each bite a singular delight. (Highly recom mended) Moving on to the entrees, the eggplant parmigiana was once again lightly breaded and deli cious with subtle spicing that lingers on the tongue. My personal favorite is the Chicken Madeira, which is a chicken breast topped with portabella mushrooms in a perfectly composed Madeira wine sauce with all that goodness served over linguine. I was consistently impressed with the presentation the fact that menu items like this are built beginning with perfectly cooked spaghettis. While trying to leave room for more, I kept returning to the pasta from this dish in that wonderful Madeira sauce. Major yum. Content in knowing the pastas would be perfectly cooked with priate to the item they served & Turf menu was an it-justgets-better scallops in Alfredo sauce. Starting with a perfectly pan-seared scallop (an art form of its own) and served with that creamy, buttery Alfredo sauce, this dish was summed up by my dining partner as excellent. And while I love an Alfredo sauce, my recommendation goes with the Shrimps Tuscany, which is served with an equally creamy and spicier sauce that shows to work. Add diced bacon to the tastes of garlic, spinach and shal lots, and that is one great sauce. Needless to say we had no room for the restaurants bounti ful, family-style desserts, but our server would not let us leave without tasting the Earthquake Cake, and I will be forever grate ful for that inside information. Its chocolate over chocolate over late at that. It more than pleased this crazed chocaholic. If you can save room for dessert, you to try this unbelievable sweet thing. And if youve read this far, appetizer with each entre for the month of December when you mention the Voice and tell them Josh sent me.

Celebrating Life, Family and the Power of HopeTHE POWER OF HOPE Is the Strength to Begin Again -Andy Akins May the God of hope ll you with joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may over ow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit -Romans 15:13McCoy Federal Credit Union Offers Financial Counseling to All Members Tools to Build a Better Financial FutureImagine someone sitting down with you and giving you personalized guidance when it comes to your nances. McCoy Federal Credit Union offers just that. Financial counseling is offered free to all members through Accel, McCoys personal money management partner. The program, developed by GreenPath Debt Solutions, helps members with everything from learning how to manage a checking account for the rst time to buying a house. This is a chance for members of McCoy to receive free, impartial advice from an experienced, professional credit counselor who will treat you with respect and compassion. Financial counseling sessions are focused entirely on a members concerns and are conducted over the phone. Members of McCoy are not limited in the number of sessions, and after the initial counseling session a member will receive a detailed budget worksheet and action plan. The Counselor will thoroughly assess a members household income and expenses, nd places to save, and develop a customized budget and action plan to help achieve a members nancial goals. The initial counseling session usually lasts 60 minutes and can be done over the phone at a time that is convenient: One of the objectives of the nancial counseling session is to build an accurate budget and create a clear picture of how the member currently spends their money. The next step is to determine what changes the member could make in their personal budget to help them achieve their nancial goals. The more accurate the information the member can provide the more productive the counseling session tends to be. So having pay slips, details of household expenses along with credit statements can really help, says Catherine Wall, Partner Relations Specialist, GreenPath, Inc. No need to jump into buying a house before rst nding out what you can afford. We do Pre-purchase Housing Counseling to help the member prepare for home ownership; the member can then make an informed decision before committing to buy a home, says Wall. Counselors can help save members money, too. A late fee on your credit report may seem like a small issue, but if that late fee impacts your credit score that fee can cost you in higher car insurance rates or a higher car payment, for example, says Wall. Members can take advantage of a Credit Report Review; the counselor will help the member evaluate their credit report, learn to dispute inaccurate information, and provide guidance to help the member improve their credit score. We encourage members to go to www.annualcreditreport.com where they can receive a free copy of their report once a year from the three main credit reporting companies, says Wall. Accel counselors want to help the member get value from every dollar they earn and spend. For those members that are struggling and out on a nancial limb, the counselor can help the member put an action plan in place to help address their nancial dif culty before the branch breaks! Wall says. Next month, learn ways McCoy helps you teach your children about scal responsibility. From allowances, giving, spending, goals and savings! Small changes make a big difference.

Make a holiday priority list and post it. Keep the list short; you cant prioritize everyone or everything. Believe it or not the rst thing on this list should be YOU. I know it sounds sel sh but if you are not taking care of yourself you will not be able to serve and love others well. Dont forget to refer to the list throughout the season. 2. Take care of yourself physically. This goes hand in hand with prioritizing yourself. Usually when things get stressful we do the complete opposite of what will help us. Make sure youre getting enough sleep, REM sleep is especially important to emotional health. Exercise and balance what youre eating and drinking. Indulging too much can impair your ability to handle stress. 3. Say No. Weve all felt the pressure to volunteer here, or attend a party there, but lets be honest, you cant do it all and remain sane. Allow yourself the freedom to say no. Determine now, how many parties or functions youll attend and stick to it. Then come up with creative ways to send your regrets, perhaps with some holiday cookies--it will help the no go down easier. 4. Schedule time for yourself. As you schedule your holiday season, make sure to include down time for you. Do what energizes you during this time, and be intentional. Read a book, journal, have some quiet time. Youll be tempted to ll this time with tasks, but if you can refrain youll be more energized to tackle the list later. 5. Re ect. Dont lose sight of what is really important this time of year. Start every day off with some re ection and prayer. Beginning your day focused on God remembering why we celebrate and giving thanks will help put the rest of the day into perspective.Remember this time of year does not have to be exhausting emotionally and physically. By implementing these tools you can nd yourself not just going through the motions but really enjoying this time of year. By Julia Jancek The countdown to Thanksgiving has begun! Ive nished decorating and I cant seem to get enough of the cinnamon-apple-pumpkin pie smell so Im lighting candles everywhere. I love this time of year, well if Im being honest I mostly love this time of year. I think for most of us the Holidays are a good idea in theory. We go into them excited, ready for family, food and fun, but somewhere between Thanksgiving and Christmas most of us wind up exhausted, frustrated and searching for a place to hide. If we take a step back, however, and go into the holidays with some intention, we can give ourselves the emotional strength needed to deal with the craziness and the calm to really enjoy what theyre all about. Here are 5 tips for a sane holiday season.Holidays with Family: This year, both sets of in-laws are visiting our home for the holidays. It will be an occasion for celebration and good cheer, unless the conversation turns to the recent national election. In that case, well be cleaning pumpkin pie off the walls. Seasonal family gatherings may be a mixed bag for you. On one hand, you look forward to these reunions while, on the other, you dread their tensions. Here are some common frustrations: Combined with the physical exhaustion, nancial strain, and seasonal depression that often accompany this time of year, its no wonder that family events often cause more anxiety than anticipation. If this scenario is familiar to you, let me give you some hope. You have more control over these experiences than you may realize. Your family holidays will become more pleasurable if you follow these four steps: De ne your limits ahead of time. Write out all of the seasonal obligations you think you have: gifts to buy, food to prepare, services to provide, days to share, etc. Now consider how much of your time and money you can honestly spend and still remain content, healthy, and secure. If youre married, discuss this with your spouse. Once youve de ned your limits, write them down and take control by determining to live within these limits. Within your limits, focus on giving. Now that youve established some boundaries, go through the list of every family member youll be with and consider ways you can make the family time good for them. Be a relationship Santa. Decide what gifts of word or deed you can give to each person. Make a list. And, yes, you can even give to the ones who have been naughty. If you do this, you will be acting with intentional sel essness. If done sincerely, you will likely notice a signi cant shift in your attitude and experience pleasure in each act of giving. Ask for help. If you nd yourself feeling overwhelmed or tired, ask for help. Dont accept the role of saint or martyr. If nobody is available or willing to help, consider leaving some things undone. You may be spending a great deal of energy on tasks that really arent that important. What good is insisting on the perfect decorations, meals, or other accommodations if your are left exhausted or resentful? Change one thing. Established traditions may often include routines you do simply because they have always been done that way. They have become social habits. As you go through another holiday, watch for those practices that have become commonplace, even though they do not strengthen or satisfy the family. If you recognize any of these, pick at least one, write it out on your calendar, and determine to change it next year.Keep them Festive NOT Frustrating!Prior to earning his Masters Degree in Counseling from Indiana Wesleyan University, Tim spent nearly 20 years as a leader and teacher, focusing on spiritual and personal growth issues for individuals and families.

How shed lost her hus band, that this might even be the end for them, and how she could possibly comfort her son with the screams and cries all around them. It was haunting, and it was a story she had kept to herself for many, many years. Emily Goldsmith and her son Frank Frankie Goldsmith were two of the few survivors of the sinking of the Titanic. There were 2,300 people on that boat, 705 survived and two of them are my family, Frank Goldsmith Jr. said. His father and grandmother survived, but his grandfather went down with the ship. Now Goldsmith Jr. shares his familys story. The Altamonte Springs resident has told the ent people, ranging from middle school students and civic groups to audiences in libraries. Hes also recorded his familys story onto DVD, which he sells on his web site. He holds people in the palm of his hand when he speaks, said friend Leo Revi, who has seen Frank speak many times. The audience is quiet and listens to his every word. Franks family grandmoth er, grandfather and his father, who was just 9 years old at the time were third-class passengers on the grand ship, and their story is one that hasnt been told much, he said. They were in search of a new life in the United States, and the unsinkable ship was supposed to be their ticket to the American dream. Instead, they survived a nearly unspeakable night of trag edies. When I grew up, we didnt talk about this, Frank said. It was so horrible, the memories, that we couldnt talk about it. But one day, his grandmother telling Frank in incredible detail what she saw that night. Emily died soon after, and Frank is sure she somehow knew she needed to share their familys story before she wasnt there anymore. She needed someone to pass it on, to teach others. Later, his father was persuaded to tell his version, from the eyes and memory of a 9-yearold boy. Franks son John Gold smith remembers neighborhood kids surrounding him on the porch to hear of the adventures his family had on the Titanic. The Goldsmith storyThey boarded the boat with the highest of spirits, and little Frankie, as he was called then, immediately found a group of other young boys who he always called his posse when he told the story. They explored the ship from tip to tip, even entering the area where workers sang to the rhythm of their coal shoveling. The men smoked and played cards, the women crocheted and chatted. The hum of the engine was all around them, a reminder of their move to a new life. But on April 14, 1912, the reassuring buzz of the engines stopped. They felt no impact, they heard or felt nothing, Frank said. But suddenly it was quiet. A knock at the door revealed that something had happened and they needed to head to their emergency stations with their life vests on. But no one was worried, it was the unsinkable Titanic, after all. They calmly took their places, eventually separating Frankie and his mom, Emily, from father Frank. Dad kissed mom goodbye and tousled little Frankies hair with a comforting So long, Frankie. Ill see you later. But he wouldnt see him ever again. Emily and her son got into a lifeboat, pushed as far away as they could, and Emily clutched Frankie into her, hop ing to block the sights and sounds that would come next. There was a loud roar and the ship broke in half, Frank said. All you saw was this great dark shape in the sky, and then it went down. They were rescued the next morning, but Franks grandfather lost his life. Emily and Frankie moved to Detroit near their fam ily and did create their life in America, but they never forgot what happened on the Titanic. Their home was near the Tigers stadium, and each time a home run was hit, theyd cringe at the roar of the crowd, that sounded so much like the cries they heard as the ship went down. John has listened to his father Frank tell their story, and it still resonates with him each time he hears it. Its still very compelling to lis ten to its very moving, John said. One day, John will be the one to share the personal history, Frank hopes. John said he can do it. I grew up with it, John said. I know it by heart.Residents father and grandmother survived the sinking of the shipBRITTNI JOHNSON The VoicePHOTO BY BRITTNI JOHNSON THE VOICEFrank Goldsmith Jr. holds a model of the famed Titanic. His father and grandpar ents were immigrating to America to start a new life when the ship sank. His grandfather died after his father, then age 9, and grandmother were ushered into a lifeboat.

To reach these goals, both Sarojben and her husband attend free English classes at First Baptist Church of Oviedo, which uses the classes as a form of ministry and service to the public. Ministry Director Elaine LaBalbo said its crucial for them to learn the English language. There are 101 dif ferent languages spoken at home in Seminole County, according to Semi nole County Public Schools. But out dramatically. Most of them go to a doctor who speaks their own language, but what if they have to go to the emergency room? LaBalbo said. Im guess ing the hospital is not going to have somebody who speaks every one of those languages, so there are certain things that they need to be able to say when they go to the hospital. Knowing the language is crucial job applications and paperwork at a where classes at the First Baptist Church of Oviedo come in.

Kennedy was fatally shot while riding in a motorcade in Dallas, President Lyndon Johnson establishes a special commission to investigate the assassination. After 10 months the Warren Commission report was released, concluding that there was no conspiracy.We asked kids at Wee the People Preschool in Sanford what they are thankful for.I am thankful for Miss Deanna my teacher because she makes me feel happy. I am also thankful for my school because we play and learn and have birthday parties here. I like turkey. Aiyanna C. 4 years old I am thankful for Barney and Spongebob Squarepants. Spongebob is a sponge and he is funny and lives under the sea. Barney and Spongebob make me feel better. Jack H. 4 years old I am thankful for my family, my mom and dad, and also my black dog, Eva. My mom cooks and plays with me. My dad gives me a kiss before I go to school. My family loves me. Precious B. 5 years old I am thankful for little and big cars. I can play with little cars on the carpet. Racing cars make noise. I am also thankful for spiders because they make webs and climb on trees and in forests. Brylie H. 5 years old I am thankful for trees, flowers, my family and Miss Deanna, the best teacher in the whole world. I like to pick flowers and give them to Mommy, Daddy and Miss Deanna. I like red, green and purple flowers. Haylee R. 4 years old Lately I have been hearing about people who are missing job opportunities because they are waiting to apply, not checking e-mail or just not following up. I recently saw a Facebook post by a friend asking another friend if they received their email about a job. He responded that he had and would reply later. Not the best impression in my book. Employers often complain that people are not following up or are not showing up. If the opportunity presents itself, you have to take it. Employers are looking be high performers. If you are slacking on the response, they think you are not interested in the job. The unwritten rule on referrals is to get your resume and cover letter out within 24 hours, if possible. If someone is waiting on your e-mail to set an appointment, they may get impatient if you take too long. On another note, if someone has referred you and it takes a week or two for you to follow up, they may forget what you were applying for. This happened with one of my refer rals recently. I received an email from the person I referred them to asking me what position it was for. Embarrassing! The job market is very competitive. a hot referral. Take action as soon as possible and you will increase your chances of landing the job. Bad things happen. Good people want to help. When Elise was going through radia tion treatments against a rampant cancer, her large circle of friends overwhelmed how to help, they brought food. The Midwesterners created casseroles. The expatriate New Yorkers brought enough deli food the energy to orchestrate her needs and all the if she could, she wasnt very good at asking for help. A friend set up a private, personalized calendar to match needs and help on a free web site called LotsaHelpingHands.com. The website coordinator would post what Elise needed rides to and from treatments, visits, supplies from the pharmacy, and cleaning out the refrigera of friends signed up for the days and tasks matic reminder messages to the helpful volunteers. Everyone shared the load, so the plenty of helping hands created a web of support without overtaxing anyone. Everyone knew what he or she was doing met a need. The announcement feature on LotsaHelpingHands.com broadcasted updates on Elises status. Another challenge for families facing a for sharing updates and news, good and bad, about the medical journey back to health. The family of a Winter Park man who was severely injured in an accident is passionate about Caring Bridge (www. CaringBridge.org), the free online commu nication program. Family and friends are naturally concerned and want to express good wishes and get updates. Com ing home from a long tough day in the hospital with the hope of a hot bath and some sleep to take away the nightmare, family members instinctively feel a surge of dreaded fear of bad news whenever the phone rings, even if it turns out to be a well-intended phone call from family or friends. On Caring Bridge, everyone is engaged with updates and supportive messages but its not intrusive. This single source of information avoids misinforma tion of the complex situation and rumors. The local familys entries in Caring Bridge not only give updates, but also share a beautiful testimony of love, hope and faith. In both websites, the coordinator sets up a private website and controls who can their central purpose. CaringBridge.org, with donation support, bridges communication needs, with an additional task support function. LotsaHelpingHands. com coordinates help and needs, with an additional caring communication feature. The tie among us all is our humanness and how we care for one another. The websites make coordination easier, but it is our humanness that makes the caring.

Historical credit points toward the magazine editor of Godeys Ladys Book, 74-year-old Sarah Josepha Hale, who had petitioned former U.S. presidents for nearly 15 years to declare one national day of Thanksgiving. The timing teresting considering the country was in the middle of a terrible Civil War. According to the writings of Abraham Lincoln, Secretary of State William Seward penned the Thanksgiving Proclamation on connection to William Seward because Geneva native Lewis Thornton Powell attempted to assassinate Seward.

Each of these four statues is accompanied by two additional Peace with Liberty, Prophet and Evangelist accompany Moral ity, Justice and Mercy with Law, while Youth and Wisdom accompany Education. The monument ment but is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Visitors from around the world pay homage to the ideals and virtues that the pilgrims brought from England and chose to use as the foundation of their lives in the new land called America. pilgrims. Disease, death, lack of food and supplies, sickness, and all took their toll on the Puritans. Who knows what truly happened drove the surviving pilgrims to stay and endure the hardships rather than return to England? Fast forward nearly 250 years plunged into a terrible Civil War. Yet despite this national hard ship, President Lincoln saw the giving thanks for the blessings they still had. Now, in our present day, unemployment, super storms, uncertain economic future, we are more fortunate than most peoples on Earth. We continue to be thankful for freedom, diversity, community, education, history, nature, family, neighbors and our unique home, the Village of Geneva.

After becoming inter ested in valueadded products from my garden tracking into the realm of fermentation, brewing Kombucha is the next logical step. Trying not to go overboard on the next big thing, I am approaching this home brewing project with my enthusiasm matured. A Kombucha mother, also called a SCOBY (symbiotic colony of bacteria and yeast), is a layer of growing sludge kept in a gallon size glass jar similar to keeping a living sour dough culture. The SCOBY is fed fresh brewed tea sweetened with sugar and left to ferment. In two weeks, the liquid have assisted in the preparation several times and will attest to a necessary degree of organization, cleanliness and practiced mo tions. Around for millennia, Kombucha tea came to Western cultures through Japan and China as a tonic for immortality. Health claims are as vivid as for snake oil, but in moderation, adverse I have added half a shot of live apple cider vinegar to my iced tea (sun brewed, not sweetened), and the Kombucha has a very similar taste. Commercialization is hot on the scent, with bottled and now available. Taking personal responsibility for procuring our food outside of merely paying cash opens numer ous arenas of intellectual pursuit. Studying micro-organisms used in the numerous types of food processing and preservation techniques not only harks back to high school biology, but conveys a contemporary cultural under standing that seems to be wear ing thin these day. Pac choi Asian cabbage is growing very well in my garden this year, and what better way to preserve it than studying and making Korean Kimchi? Probiotic preservation, such as brine pickling of garden vegetables similar to making Ger man sauerkraut, leads to a sense of accomplishment and an eco nomically full belly. (Dont even get me started on home brewing beer and wine!) Over the course of the day, I drink about 2 ounces of Komtea because I like it, not expect With pasteurization as the touted standard for our nations food supply, toying with live microbes could be considered anarchy. But really, it has been only our last three generations of the entire human species that eats such a sterile diet. And look where that is getting us!Kombucha tea another fad?PHOTO BY TOM CAREY THE VOICEThis is the corner of the closet where I keep my jars of Kombucha tea mother.
