Seminoles have own feast traditions t

By MaryAnn Morris
Feasting is common to most
Food is a human tradition that
cuts right through every cultural
barrier. Of course, not everyone
likes the same thing. That's
where tradition comes in. Tradi-
tion comes from what foods are
available. That's why in New
England, oyster stuffing might be
more common than the South-
ern cornbread stuffing and
bread stuffing is traditional in the
Northeast. And all shades in
Native Americans had their
holiday traditions as well. Their
holiday traditions were different
than those of the white settlers.
This lead some European set-
tlers to assume Native Ameri-
cans were "savages" since their
food, holidays, language, tradi-
tions were different. Native
American culture was rich and
varied as the land they called
home, America.
The Seminole people of Flori-
da had traditions and their foods
were the foods that grew or
could be caught here in Florida.
Much of their culture seems to
have been lost, perhaps because
their language was not written.
Old photographs of holiday
celebrations indicate that Semi-
noles have adopted this uniquely
American tradition.
Seminole foods involved sal-
ads, breads, soups, sweets, veg-
etables and meat: deer, alligator,
fish, frog legs, sweet berries and

bit," though said Ann McCudden,
director of the Ah-ta-thi-ki Semi-

bread is most common. Years ago,
a pot of "Sof-kee" would be kept
hot over the fire in case any one
was hungry. Sofkee is porridge,
kind of like a cooked cereal made
with corn or hominy, salt and
water. They did not eat three meals
a day, but ate as they were hungry.
Most formal cooking was done
on special occasions according to

Grant aids Center of Excellence

to educate students with Autism

Florida Autism Center of
Excellence, Inc., a non-profit
corporation dedicated to the
education of children and young
adults with autism, announced it
has been awarded a $700,000
grant from the Florida Depart-
ment of Education to plan and
develop an autism education
center of excellence near
Tampa. .
Florida Autism Center of
Excellence (FACE) will apply for
a charter and request authoriza-
tion to serve students in Hillsbor-
ough, Pasco, Pinellas, Sarasota,
Manatee and Polk counties. The
center is scheduled to open in
August 2007 and will serve stu-
dents ages three to 22.
The need is great in Florida,
where the most recent U.S.
Department of Education figures
available ranked the state sixth
in the nation in 2005 with 7,918
cases of autism in children ages_
six through 21. It is estimated
that autism affects one in 166
children born today. Nation-
wide, the number of children
diagnosed with autism contin-
ues to increase at a rate of more
than 20 percent a year, accord-
ing to the U.S. Department of
FACE plans to engage Educa-
tional Services of America, (ESA)
the nation's leading provider of
special and alternative educa-
tional programs for children, to
manage the program. ESA is
based in Nashville, Tenn., and
manages more than 100 schools
and programs in 16 states to
serve children with physical;
emotional and developmental

disabilities, including autism.
ESA operates 38 schools and
programs in Florida, including
nine programs specifically for
students with autism.
"The Florida Center of Autism
Excellence will provide a com-
prehensive program to address
the unmet needs of students'
with, Autism Spectrum Disor-,
ders," Mark Claypool, president
and chief executive officer of
ESA, said. "We believe that chil-
dren and young adults with
autism can advance in their aca-
demic and interpersonal skills if
they are given' the right type of
instruction, encouragement and
tools to learn in a safe and
healthy academic environment.
"Unfortunately, current pub-
lic education ard social pro-
gramming for students with
autism is severely limited by a
lack of resources and expertise,
and many students simply do
not receive the individualized,
programming that will help
them progress from elementary
school through high school and
transition to post-secondary
education," Claypool said.

Don't wait for Christmas to be nice, be nice all year

Why do we have to wait till
Christmas to be nice to one anoth-
er? Are we just too busy to help
each other out at other times of the
year or is it just not in our vision?
When we are too busy we don't
see the needs. We are walking in
that fog that we call our lives. Our
attention is focused only on what
we see within that immediate vicin-
ity. This is when we are having to
race to put out fires that are taking
over our homes and our schedules.
No wonder we can't see the needs
of others; those raging infernos are
about to devour everything around
Several years ago I was just like
you! My whole day consisted of
going from one fire to the next and
sometimes jumping right out the
frying pan into the fire. It is so hard
to get out of this chaotic mess. We
don't know how to put out all the
fires at once. This is what we think
we have to do. But it is not what

by Maria

We have been surviving on a
steady flow of adrenalin pumping
through our bodies. This adrenalin
has been our drug of choice. We
don't know how to function unless
we are racing to put out yet another
fire. If somehow we did manage to
extinguish all the fires at once we
would not know what do to with
This is why I preach taking
BabySteps! BabySteps work! One
little habit will help you to eliminate
a potential fire starter. As you build
your simple little habits into a rou-
tine; you are going to be so sur-

prised that your stress level has
decreased and you don't seem to
be in that tizzy all the time anymore.
It doesn't happen all at once. Our
bodies would rebel if we quit our
adrenalin junkie habit cold turkey.
Establishing one habit at a time
slowly decreases our dependency
on that drug of choice.
I never dreamed that I could
function without being stressed
out. I took great pride in working
better under pressure. Boy was I
wrong! As I look back now, I can
see that most of what I did was
thrown together and not done with
any planning. You could say I was
flying by the seat of my pants. I
don't have to live this way any
My routines keep me sane. I am
not walking in a fog and I can see
clearly what needs to be done. I can
also see someone else's needs. It is

Child presents of gold, frankincense
and nmrrh
A present of gold is easy to
understand. Any new parent can
appreciate a gill of money. But
frankincense and myrrh are not so
well known,
Myrrh and frankincense come
from plants native to the Arabian
Frankincense and myrrh grow
as shrubs or small trees.
Frankincense and myrrh were
valuable substances in ancient
times and had many uses. The sub-
stances were obtained by making
cuts in the bark of the tree oi shrub
and them collecting the sap which .
hardened into resin.

Healthier ,
with Katrina Elsken
The Egyptians used myrrh for
embalming bodies. Frankincense
was used in India to make incense
to burn in religious ceremonies.
In some countries, myrrh was
burned to ward off sickness: For
example, if there was an epidemic
of sickness in a community, myrrh
might be burned in the home of
someone who was sick in the hope
that it might prevent other mem-
bers of the household from becom-
ing ill.
The Chinese used both frankin-
cense and myrrh as medicines.

They were used to treat injuries,
reduce swellings and soothe the
pain of arthritis.
Small quantities of myrrh added
to food were thought to improve
digestion. The two resins were con-
sidered complimentary and were
often administered together.
Modern researchers have found
both frankincense and myrrh con-
tain natural antibiotics:
As is often the case with "home
remedies," there is scientific evi-
dence to show the natural remedy

At this time of year being nice is
brought to our attention. We watch
the holiday movies on television
and hear about random acts of
kindness. Last week in Indiana at a
Starbucks drive thru window, 140
people paid for the person behind
them in line. This went on for three
hours. Just yesterday my friend, Eric
Dodge told me about a song he
was working on as a gift for the
troops. His lead guitarist, Jim Sevy
wrote a song to lift the spirits of our
troops and their families. Eric
recorded it and put it as a free
download on his website,
www.EricDodge.com. The song is
called "I Pledge". All they wanted to
do was brighten the day of one sol-
dier. Today Eric got an email from a
soldier thanking him for the song. It
made his day.

Be careful with first mortgage

Deciding to purchase a home
is one of the most significant
decisions that a consumer will
ever make. It is crucial that the
consumers work with a mort-
gage broker, loan originator or
other mortgage professional
during the home buying process.
While most mortgage industry
professionals are honest and
ethical, it is still important for
consumers to be aware of the
following tips as they prepare to
enter the largest financial trans-
action of their lives. By becom-
ing knowledgeable about the
mortgage process, they can pro-
tect their financial investment
and close the loan that will best
serve their needs.
The Florida Association of
Mortgage Brokers (FAMB) offers
the following tips to avoid abu-
sive lending practices during the
home buying process:.
*Shop around and compare.
If you need to borrow money for
a home purchase, refinance,
home repairs, medical expenses
or bill consolidation, shop
around with different brokers
and lenders. Compare interest
rates and find out what the total
costs of the loan will be and
what your monthly payment will

be before making a decision.
You should be furnished with a
Good Faith Estimate of costs.
*Use the Good Faith Estimate
from each lender or broker to
compare the loan terms and
*Negotiate. Don't let the
promise of extra cash or lower
monthly payments get in the
way of your good judgment.
Consider whether the closing
costs you will pay for the loan
are really worth it. Don't agree to
a loan that includes extra prod-
ucts you don't want. Negotiate
the loan terms and agree to a
loan amount that will meet your
*Be cautious. Be wary of any-
one who calls you on the phone,
solicits you in the mail or comes
to your door offering "bargain
loans". Beware of claims that the
offer is only available for a short
period of time. Beware of
lenders claiming 'bad credit no
problem'. If the loan terms seem
too good to be true, perhaps
they are.
*Never act immediately. If the
mortgage professional asks for
fees up front, ask how the fees
will be used and be certain to get
the explanation in writing. Are

the funds for the appraisal or
credit report? Never pay a lender
cash for any fees, and always
make the check payable to the
mortgage firm, not the individual
loan officer.
*Understand the terms of
your loan. Some loans may
sound very attractive because
the monthly payment is small.
Ask if there will be a balloon pay-
ment at the end of the loan peri-
od. Make sure you know the dol-
lar amount of each monthly
payment and ask if the monthly
payment can change at anytime
during the repayment process. If
so, find out when it will change,
how much the increase will be
and how often the change will
*Don't be afraid to ask ques-
tions. You have a legal right to
know the total cost of the loan,
the annual percentage rate (APR),
the monthly payments, and how
long you will make payments on
the loan. If you are unsure of any
terms of the loan, ask for an
explanation. Ifyou don't receive a
straight answer, go elsewhere for
your financing needs.
*Read carefully before you
sign. Don't sign any document
you haven't read or has blank

spaces that could be filled in
after you sign. Don't be pres-
sured into signing any loan
papers that you do not under-
stand. If you need an explana-
tion of any terms or conditions,
talk to someone knowledgeable
that you trust. Get copies of
everything you sign at the time
you sign them.
*Borrow only the amount
you need and can afford to
repay. Just because you qualify
for a certain amount of money
doesn't mean you should bor-
row the maximum. Consider
whether you can afford to make
the payments. Determine exactly
how much money you need,
borrow only that amount and
find out exactly how much your
monthly payments will be. If you
are consolidating debt, make
sure you will have enough
money left after closing costs
and loan pay offs to pay any
other bills you would like to
*Immediately get help if you
feel you have been victimized.
Contact your local state regula-
tors and/or your local Better
Business Bureau to report the
individuals and companies you
worked with.

Small-business owners have year-end tax options

the end of the year is rapidly
approaching, there's still time to
minimize your exposure to
Uncle Sam next year. If you
haven't already, consider the fol-
lowing ideas now to ease your
tax burden.
Thanks to the work of the
National Federation of Indepen-
dent Business (NFIB), small
business owners are enjoying
increased expensing limits as
they prepare their 2006 tax
returns. Last May, Congress
approved an extension of the
increased IRS Section 179
expensing limit, effective
through 2009. That limit is now
up to $108,000 for the 2006 tax
year due to the annual inflation
adjustment. If you prefer to
receive immediate tax benefits
from purchasing office equip-
ment, rather than spreading the
cost over several years as a
depreciation expense, then go
ahead and purchase that new
equipment: computer, software,
furnishings and machinery-
before the end of the year and
write off that cost for the 2006
tax year.
Gifts to legitimate business
associates, including clients and
customers, are deductible up to
$25 per gift. You also can deduct

the price of incidental costs that
don't add value to the gift, such
as shipping and handling costs.
Certain de minimus fringe
benefits are tax-free to the
employee and fully deductible
by the employer. If you're in the
spirit of giving this holiday sea-
son, you may be able to deduct
certain gifts to your employees
as long as they have a low fair-
market value. A cash gift, or cash
equivalent such as a gift certifi-
cate, is not deductible and is
considered taxable compensa-
tion to the employee. You should
consult with a tax professional to
determine the appropriate
With all gifts, save your
receipts for proof of the expens-
es in the event of an IRS audit.
If you set up a qualified retire-
ment plan before Jan. 1, 2007,
you can, in some cases, reap the
tax benefits on your contribu-
tions until Oct. 15, 2007, the
extended deadline for your 2006
tax return. Options for small-
business owners include IRAs,
SEP-IRAs, SIMPLE plans and
401(k) plans.
Charitable giving not only
helps your community, it helps
your tax bill.
To be eligible for your 2006
tax return, gifts must be post-

Savor your lives every day

This morning, I received an
email ad from a kitchen supply
store telling me to "savor the
holidays." As I was about to
delete it, I started thinking about
the word "savor" and what it
means. What I aim for in my life
is to live in such a way that I
savor ALL days, not just the holi-
days. Isn't that what it's all truly
about? Not just holidays and cel-
ebrations-but everything,, from
the mundane tasks to the more
difficult aspects of living-every-
thing. ALL of life is meant to be
savored-not just the holidays.
The dictionary defines savor
(the verb) as: to give flavor to, to
have experience of, to taste or
smell with pleasure, to delight
in. Other words or phrases
would be season, taste, relish,
appreciate, enjoy, and luxuriate
We can do that savor our
lives, when we let go of our per-
fectionism. Have you ever
noticed perfectionism doesn't
live in the here and now?
Instead, it looks back wistfully at
another time and place remem-
bering when things were (in our
skewed thinking) "perfect" (or
pretty close to it). Perfectionism
looks ahead at what could be "if
only I could (fill in the blank)".
Perfectionism refuses to live
in today because today is a
mess. There are clothes that
Need washing, noses that need
wiping and food that needs
preparing. We have body clutter
issues, husbands who don't
understand, children that won't
obey and even the dog messes
stuff up. CALGON TAKE ME
AWAY, we holler, like that erst-
while television commercial
with.the distraught Mom think-
ing the only escape in her way
less than perfect life was a bub-
ble bath.
So how on EARTH can you
savor the above scenario?? The
answer is going to sound sim-
plistic and overly Pollyann-ish
but I'm going to spout off any-
way. You live in the moment,
you savor those little runny
noses because in a few years,

The Dinner
Dl Diva

your teenagers will barely let
you hug them let alone wipe
their noses. Those clothes that
need washing? You have a FAMI-
LY that loves you and depends
on you-there are legions of sin-
gle women who wish they lived
in your lace up shoes. Bless
each one of them as you turn
their dirty socks right side out
again for the millionth time as
you're doing the wash. Tirn on
the honey and sweetness with
your sweet darling husband-
love him up "real good", with
affection, a good meal, clean
underwear and a pleasant smile
and see if he doesn't suddenly
start to understand a little bit
Letting go of perfectionism
means savoring our everyday
lives with all their messes and
imperfections. It means making
a conscious decision to become
a real blessing in our families
lives by appreciating, delighting
in, relishing, enjoying and actu-
ally LUXURIATING in their pres-
ence. Giving flavor to our fami-
lies with our changed attitudes
and loving them with our whole
So go ahead and savor your
holidays by being prepared. But
don't forget to keep TODAY in
mind as you prepare for whatev-
er holiday you happen to be cel-
ebrating. Every day is worthy of

marked by Dec.
31, even if they're received in
January. With your donation of
cash, property, insurance, secu-
rities or goods, ask for a tax letter
and a receipt that you can
include with your return.
Employees can be rewarded
with additional compensation,
and there's a special break for
accrual basis businesses: Bonus-
es to rank-and-file employees
declared in 2006 are deductible
this year, as long as they're actu-
ally paid by March 15, 2007.
If 2006 wasn't a good year for
your business, make sure you
can use tax losses to your advan-
tage. For example, if you're an S-
corporation shareholder, be sure
there's sufficient basis in your
corporate stock and debt
(money you loan to the corpora-
tion) to fully utilize your share of
corporate losses. If you need
more basis to offset the losses,
you could make additional loans
to the corporation before year's
end. Or, if there are outstanding
third-party loans to the corpora-
tion for which you've given your
personal guarantee, try asking
the lender to recast the loan,
making you primarily liable for
the debt so that you can add this
amount to your basis.

are right for you.
