2008: Cities turned challenges

into opportunities

Budget cuts, crime, political turmoil tempered by citizen
involvement, open dialogue

By Bethany Chambers
The year 2008 wasn't always a day at the beach -
or a day by the river for residents, business own-
ers, city employees or elected officials in Daytona
Beach and Holly Hill.
Budget cuts, crime and political turmoil often
dominated water cooler talk. But in this year of
transition, for every challenge the cities faced there
was an equal accomplishment, officials say.
In Holly Hill, there were some growing pains, as
long-time leaders hit the highways to jobs in bigger
cities and counties and as the new community

Establishing a budget was one of the greatest
challenges to face Daytona Beach this year, Mayor

Glenn '
Ritchey said.
The city had to deliver services while "dealing
with the realities of the financial challenge the city
is faced with," he said.

Home lost to fire on
Christmas eve

As we say goodbye to 2008,
many are hoping for better
times in the NewYear. A
couple living near Ormond
Beach lost their oceanfront
home Christmas Eve.
Investigators with the state
fire marshal's office are still
trying to determine what led
to the blaze that gutted the
home of Rolf and Brigette
Gardey on Oceanshore Blvd.
Mr. Gardey toldWESH 2 the
couple was sleeping around 5
a.m. when they heard what
sounded like a muffled
explosion outside. The home
is right off the busy road so
they thought it might be a car
backfiring. Twenty minutes

later, Mr. Gardey heard
another whooshing sound,
got up and found the north
part of the house on fire.
Flames spread quickly
through the home made of
cypress wood. Mr. Gardey
suffered several bums trying
to put the blaze out but there
was no saving it. Investigators
believe the fire started
outside, perhaps on the deck
surrounding the home, but
they still don't know how it
started. The gardens sur-
rounding the multi-million-
dollar property are so
spectacular, the owner says
they made the Smithsonian
list of historical gardens. Mr.
Gardey, a former rocket
scientist who came to this
country in 1961 with very
little, accomplished much in
his lifetime and says he will
rebuild his dream home. He
says he and his wife still have
much to be grateful for,
including their health.

Gold medallist comes

The holidays brought a
golden son back to his
hometown. The man dubbed
"the thin beast" which
changed to "the Beijing
Beast" during the recent
Olympic games, was back
home in Ormond Beach
recently and honored by that
city and the city of Daytona
Beach. Phil Dalhausser and
his partner Todd Rogers
shined a spotlight on beach
volleyball during the summer
games, winning gold medals
and Dalhausser hails from
Ormond Beach. Dalhausser
told WESH 2 he grew up in
Ormond Beach and became
interested in the game while a
senior at Mainland High-
school. He says he honed his
skills on the beach and the
city of Ormond Beach has
created a beach volleyball
court named for Dalhausser.
They also gave him the key to
the city during an oceanside
ceremony and Dalhausser
signed autographs for locals
who cheered him on from

With a real estate crisis grip-

experts predicting a recession,
local city officials said they
knew early on budgets would
be tight.
To balance the budgets,
both Daytona Beach and
Holly Hill officials held work-
shops to let residents know
there would be service cuts
and increased fees.
In Daytona Beach that
meant eliminating 13 posi-
tions, deferring equipment
purchases and dipping into
reserve funds.

of Commissioner Liz
Towsley, a fired former

plaints against former

In Holly Hill, budget cuts
were tempered by the Marina

municipality in the county to
have an increase in tax rolls.
Still, consumers saw trash,

office quietly at the end of
2007, but it soon became clear
that the tension continued
between she and her former
supervisors public safety
director Don Shinnamon,
police Cmdr. Mark Barker and
city manager Joe Forte.
The brouhaha became
increasing public as the year
progressed, with Ms. Towsley
publicizing embarrassing e-
mails exchanged between the
men and Mr. Shinnamon and
Mr. Barker asking the city to
hire them an attorney to
defend them against her
criminal and civil complaints.
By summer, the friction
came to a head, with a group
of citizens forming a political
action committee dedicated
to removing Ms. Towsley from
office and a harried Mr. Shin-
namon lashing out at Ms.
Towsley in a commission
meeting, saying he was "damn
sick and tired."
When Mr. Shinnamon and
Mr. Barker took Ms. Towsley
to court in November, though,
a resolution brought some
peace to the situation: The
men agreed to abandon their
pursuit of restraining orders

Goodbye, Hello
The year 2008 marked the
exit of two veteran Holly Hill
employees and the ascension
of three others.
In early January, city man-
ager Joe Forte accepted a
position as deputy county

manager in Seminole County,
leaving the city after 18 years.
A split-vote commission com-
bined with the increased
salary convinced him to make
the move, he said.
By the end of the year, pub-
lic safety director Don Shin-
namon was out the door, tak-
ing the position as police chief
in Port St. Lucie after seven
years in Holly Hill. His exit was
prompted not by commis-
sioner Liz Towsley, he said,
but by increased salary and
job challenges.
Both men were replaced by
longtime employees. Just less
than a month after Mr. Forte
left, acting city manager Tim
Harbuck, formerly the city's
chief building official for 18
years, was hired to take the
seat at the end of the dais.
When Mr. Shinnamon
announced he was leaving,
Mr. Harbuck was quick to hire
from within.

the ranks with took the helm

A good shaking of the roots is needed for the new year

very so often, '"A Good
Shaking of the Roots"
is needed to clear out
the old and make room for
the new and better things in
life that make us happy,
healthy, successful or
secure. A snake sheds its
skin now and then to renew
itself. A few years ago when
Yellowstone Park burned,
everyone looked at it as a
disaster. Since then, several
hundred old life forms have
reappeared that the rangers
thought were extinct, along
a many new ones. The roots
were still alive. They just
couldn't break through all
the top growth that had
come later.
I was talking to my dear
friend, Betty Borden, on
Christmas Day and asked
for her predictions for 2009.
She said, "The economy
will recover, but it will take a
while. We need to stop
thinking about everything
that went wrong and begin
to take positive action that
will help our country and

the world."
We can't change what has
happened in the past. But
we can create new causes
and missions like we sow
new seeds in the garden to
grow new life. With your
permission, here are the
new causes I will plant for
all of the readers of Home-
town News, our country and
the world. Then it is my job
and your job to water the
seeds through our positive
thinking (Thank you, Betty)
and rekindle the fire of
desire living in our hearts
and souls for a great new
year 2009. Here are a few
We have survived the
greater challenges. We don't
learn from our victories. We
learn from our defeats,
hopefully, and move on to
renewed hope. With the
help of the government
bailouts, the economy will
pick up. There will be new
regulations and checkpoints
set up that will protect our
money from less-than-

honest individuals who will
be held accountable for
honesty and taken to task
for anything less.
I see a migration coming
our way of people living in
South Florida around the
Miami area. This will create
new markets, jobs and
spending, especially from
the Hispanic community.
They will also bring their
culture and stimulate new
interest in the spreading of

international arts and
sciences. Our area and
country is becoming fully
integrated and open to new
ideas and culture, from the
presidency on down.
Mother Nature is amaz-
ing. One of her recent
lessons given is to trim
down, eat less, waste less
and become healthier. I see
families growing more of
their own food. Do you want
to start a foolproof busi-
ness? Start building and
selling backyard greenhous-
Many people are worried
about spiraling inflation. I
see that the new mindset of
thrift and less waste will
continue to keep inflation in
check. I believe that the
essential goodness in every
living soul will prevail. An
example of this is how we
are driving less and the
price of gasoline has been
cut in half or more. Being
thrifty pays.
Many local families have
suffered with their homes. It

has been tough. I believe
that the real estate market
will begin to recover and
turn around in the spring
and summer. patience is the
greatest virtue.
Street crimp has always
been with us. Take precau-
tionary measures when you
go out, even if for a loaf of
bread. Park in-an open area
and lock your car. Take only
the money you need with
you. The law enforcement
officers are doing all they
can. Help our anyway you
can to bridge the gap as a
citizen to keep, our home-
towns safe.
And last but not least,
Hometown News. Ah, the
wonderful Hometown
News. I had a dream
recently and saw the paper
adding three new editions
in 2009. They were to the
west and north. In the near
future, the paper will grow
regionally and nationally.

outreach. Thanks Vernon

YMCA much room to grow
and didn't have a gym, pool or
That's when leaders of the
recently merged Volusia/Fla-
gler FamilyYMCA, which runs
eight facilities including the
Daytona Beach/Holly Hill
location, looked into con-
tracting with the city of Holly
Hill to run the YMCA from the
city's recreation center. The
city and YMCA had previously
worked together on joint pro-
grams for basketball, soccer
and other sports.'
Amidst negotiations,
though, the YMCA brought in
a new CEO, Teresa Rogers, and
talks languished as interim
CEO Kenneth Barnes moved
back into his vice president
position. Three months later,
negotiations ended when city
officials said they could not
agree to the terms proposed
City and YMCA officials
vowed to continue to partner
on recreation programs, and
Mr. Barnes left the localYMCA
to take over as CEO of aYMCA

Serial killer strikes again
Daytona Beach was back in
the national news this year,
but not for being, the World's
Most Famous Beach.
Instead, it was the hunt for a
serial killer.
The body of Holly Hill resi-

dent Stacey Gage was found
in a wooded area at the start of
the new year, the scene and
circumstances a carbon copy
of the murders of three other
women found between 2005
and 2006.
The Daytona Beach Police
and the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement formed a
joint task force, women were
warned to take steps to pro-
tect themselves and profilers
suggested the man behind the
crimes could be anyone.
Although two other crimes
briefly brought reports that
the serial killer might have
been captured, police say he is
still on the loose.

Taking a bite out of crime
Despite several high profile
criminal cases occurring in
the city this year, the Daytona
Beach Police Department saw
drops in several areas of crime
while closing a greater per-
centage of cases than ever.
Unofficial statistics dated
Dec. 13 show the city having a
two-percent reduction in
overall crime, with double-
digit drops in auto theft, bur-
glary, carbreak and sexual bat-
tery cases.
The police department also
closed more than 30 percent
of the open cases in the first
half of 2008, greater than the
25-percent closure rate last
year and more than two-times
the closure rate three years
ago, a major accomplishment
for the city, Mayor Ritchey

Welcome Barack Obama

The U.S. should be fair to all countries. Aid should not
be given to Iraq but to all of America. We should stop
supporting Israel. They cause all the trouble. Let them
fight it out among themselves and get this war over with
and stop butting into other people's problems. We need
to control our own borders We are letting too many peo-
ple into this country. I'm glad we are getting rid of
George Bush, and I don't want Jeb Bush. I welcome
Barack Obama. He's going to help the middle class and
get all the illegals out of our country and state. Let's start
making American great again.

New Walmart planned

The Daytona Beach News-Journal recently had a
notice that Walmart was building a super center just
west of 1-95 on Rt. 44. That would be fabulous as the old-
tiniey Walmart in New Smyrna Beach doesn't come close
to filling our needs. We hope the powers that be approve

No Taxes to Saudi Arabia

Today, December 26th, I read in Rants and Raves a let-
ter complaining about the U.S. not sending a fair share
of taxpayers money to the Arab countries like we've been
sending it to Israel. This person's towel must have
slipped down over his eyes or he would have seen that
we've been sending billions to Saudi Arabia for years by
buying their oil at outrageous prices. I'm not Jewish but
Israel is an ally of ours.

Please don't litter
My girlfriend and I walk from Magnolia to Curves on
Beville three times a Week, approximately one mile. Two
times a week we bring garbage bags and pick up garbage
along the way. (We collect between four and eight bags
of garbage a week.) We don't mind doing it because
somebody has to clean up after people that do not have
trash bags in their cars and throw their garbage out on
the roadway. (I'd hate to see what their homes look like
if they have no regard for what their city looks like).
However, if the merchants along Beville would clean up
in front of their businesses (especially the laundromat)
it would be a big help. I have seen people get out of their
cars and LITTERly step right over trash on their way into
their buildings. Like I said, we don't mind but a little
help would be appreciated. Don't throw it out to begin
with. Thanks.

Driving too slow on Williamson

I cannot even begin to tell you how frustrated I am
with driving on Williamson Boulevard, from Taylor Rd.
to Beville Rd. Every day I travel on this stretch of road to
and from work, and every day I get behind someone
doing 40 mph. THIS IS A 55MPH ZONE PEOPLE!!!!! Some
of us have to be at certain places at certain times. You
know, you will get a ticket for driving too fast, therefore,
there should be a citation for driving too slow. I find
myself on a daily basis, screaming like a maniac at the
car in front of me as if they can hear me. It is very stress-
ful. You know the song "I can't drive 55"? Well, people
around here really can't even when they are supposed to.
All I ask is that everyone just does the speed limit, and
help spare me a little anxiety on my commute to work.

Arrest the originators of crimes
I recently read about a man who was sentenced to six
years or more for possessing child pornography he
downloaded through the internet. I don't have a com-
puter and I don't know what constitutes a crime in this
area but I do know that everyone should be punished,
the filmers, the parents of the children who are filmed,
the perverts who downloaded the material. A lot of peo-
ple may find themselves on this site including students
researching papers for papers about pedophiles or
judges looking into cases. It doesn't make sense to me to

GO? s

n, __ _

arrest someone who accidentally downloads the materi-
al. It's like arresting the first person who slows down to
look at a traffic accident and then let everyone else who
has to take a good long look go free including the one
who caused the accident in the first place. I don't get it.

Kudos to the Hometown News

I've read the Hometown News for a long time and this
is a rave, not a rant. There are too many rants, too many
negative people. You guys do a wonderful job and it is a
wonderful paper.

Clean up neighborhoods

Regarding themerchant on Beach Street who wasn't
allowed to run his business on the street. I live on the
beachside in an upscale area and for two years have
called code enforcement because I live near houses
which are not taken care of .The grass is as high as my
waist and for two years I've called the mayor's office,
police, code enforcement and nothing is ever done. So,
code enforcement needs to not pick on a businessman
trying to make a living and clean up the other problems
in our neighborhood. Nothing's being done and I'm not
real happy, but it has gotten better.

Help seniors pay for neutering pets

I wonder how the population at Halifax Humane Soci-
ety has gone up since they imposed the spay and neuter
law. I just found out how much it would cost me to have
my dog taken care of. I'm on a fixed income and I love
my dog and need him as company. He's a house dog and
has never been off a leash outside. The new law is a dou-
ble edged sword because it discourages seniors to have
an animal as an advantage of good health. I'm well aware
I: of the pluses to spay and neuter but are they going to
give us a break to accomplish this? I can't' ay $200 or
more and don't want to give up my dog. I'm'a widow liv-
ing alone.

Thank you to anonymous helper

I would like to thank the nice lady who left a note on a
royal blue mini van at the 1900 block on SR 44 on Tues-
day between the hours of 3 and 5 p.m I appreciate your
concern and I appreciate what you did for us. I wish
there were more people like you. Thank you very much
whoever you are.

Help with food stamps

In response to our flawed system: it's a shame that our
economy is so bad that there has to be an increase in
'food stamps. Not only does one have to be within
income limits but also with access limits for the pro-
gram, necessary info has to be turnd tin timely. It's a
federal program and one has to follow through with all of
theq program requirements. If you think you are eligible
for the benefits you can reapply. ..

Elderly need help

Why, after so many phone calls and letters, haven't I
received the help a person needs to have a productive
life in Daytona Beach? My mother passed away and my
son was in a bad accident and I almost lost him. What is
it that would make Daytona help someone in my situa-

Neighbors should use a pooper-scooper

I live in the Port Orange area. In Harbor Oaks we have a
Neighborhood Watch. I just want to let people know that
those people who have no respect for their neighbors or
community will be reported. There are pit bulls running
loose and elderly people in the neighborhood walk their
dogs. Dogs run around loose in front yards. I keep my
new puppy leashed when outside but others do not and
let their dogs poop everywhere. There is a leash law for
dogs even on your front yard. I'm just one neighbor let-
ting others know they're being looked at and will be

End the eating contests
I love the Hometown News, and I read it every week.
However, I did not appreciate the column about eating
contests. I hope I'm not the only one who doesn't find
eating contests cute and funny. So many people go hun-
gry, dying of starvation, so watching a group of people

gorging themselves on hot dogs is not only disgusting
but immoral

Madoff scandal exposes
government failure
The common reaction to the Bernard Madoff $50 -bil-
lion financial scam was wholly expected. As Los Angeles
Times columnist Tim Rutten wrote, "The lesson is one
that becomes clearer with each excruciating turn of the
Wall Street screw. The long, bipartisan experiment with
financial deregulation has failed utterly. The argument
that a return to rigorous oversight will somehow stifle
Wall Street's 'creativity' is no longer convincing. Whatev-
er its theoretical costs, regulation is dramatically cheap-
er than intervention. And absolutist insistence on the
superiority of 'individual choice' and 'free markets' now
is exposed as so much vacant rhetoric. Any system that
permits a scam artist like Madoff to deceive not just wid-
ows and orphans but also sophisticated investors like
Fairfield Greenwich Group's Walter Noel and Holly-
wood's Jeffrey Katzenberg, isn't a market at all; it's a
shooting gallery.
.The, last sentence.is a tip-off that something is wrong
with-this"outlook. Financial regulatiofl is usually pro-
sed to rotect the unsophisticated. People knowl-
edgat out finance and securities fpresiuabTyan
take care 6f themselves. But what makes the Madoff
scandal so'noteworthy is that the most sophisticated
types were taken in, even though several experts sound-
ed alarms. Why?
The other thing to note about Rutten's position is that
there has been no relevant financial deregulation to
speak of. In fact, since Enron's collapse, regulation has
intensified and the regulatory budget has grown. The
SEC already requires investment and hedge-fund man-
agers with assets over, $100 million to 'file quarterly
reports. Under prodding from outside, the SEC looked at
Madoff's operation more than once but found no major
problems. Moreover, Madoff's alleged crimes involve
fraud. Have any laws against fraud been repealed?
Contrary to Rutten, whose prejudice against "individ-
ual choice" and "free markets" is palpable, these two
facts sophisticated victims and pervasive regulation
demonstrate the failure not of the free market (which
did not exist) but rather of regulation.
How can that be?
Begin the obvious: a false sense of security is worse
than none at all. When people believe government is
protecting them from bad financial services, they are
more vulnerable to scams than if they knew they had to
protect themselves. The government's huge regulatory
apparatus broadcasts one unmistakable subliminal
message: Have no fear because Big Brother is watching
over you. Is it any wonder that people are less wary than
they would be if they did not believe that?
As: long as government plays a regulatory role or
people believe it does they will assume that key activi-
ties are being monitored. Arid even when an activity is
known to be unregulated, the implication is that if regu-
lation were needed, government would be doing it. Why
else did worldly investors fall or M6tdoffs's self-described
"giant Ponzi scheme"?
The call for regulation assumes without grounds -
that government can protect investors from con men.
But government regulators have never been able to
make good on that promise. Con men prosper no matter
how much the government regulates. They often under-
stand the system better than the people running it.
(Madoff was an insider!)
Looking to government regulation for security merely
adds another avenue for corruption. Ordinarily people
are cautious when someone promoting a product stands
to profit by its sale. But regulators are supposedly disin-
terested and don't profit by their activities. All they want
to do is protect the public interest and they have the
state's imprimatur vouching for them. That's the theory
at any rate.
In fact, they are human beings like us all, with the
same kinds of motives and goals and temptations. To
the extent we think they are saints, we make ourselves
vulnerable to scams. (Speaking of Ponzi schemes, check
out Social Security and Medicare.)
What's the solution? Super-regulators to watch the reg-
ulators? And who watches the super-regulators? Face it:
there is no security in regulation. Rather, there's only a
dangerous illusion of security, not to mention a drag on
economic growth as the bureaucracy interferes with
honest traders.
The claim of free-market advocates is not that we need
no protection from the unscrupulous. Rather, it's that
protection is maximized by undiluted market discipline
- profit and loss and buyer-beware skepticism.

Steve Lochte to head DSC swim program

Program to start next year, include div

By Jeanne Willard
"back to the future" for Day-
tona State College.
Back to the 1980s when
the college's swim and dive
teams won national cham-
pionships, and toward a
similar future as DSC rein-
states the swim program
under the direction of head
coach Steve Lochte.
Coach Lochte, whose
name is synonymous with
swimming in the Port

Orange community, is per-
haps best known as the
father and coach of son and
two-time Olympian Ryan
The announcement was
made recently at the L. Gale
Lemerand Athletic and
Aquatic center where Mr.
Lochte told supporters that.
an athletic program is not
just about winning.
"I'm here to bring wealth
to this institituion," Mr.
Lochte said. "When I say
wealth, I mean wealth in
character as far as building

the characteristic of good
human beings to develop a
better society. Our legacy is
our children."
But, winning a state or
national championship is
definitely a goal, Coach
Lochte said.
"It's going to take time to
build," he said.
Local swimming talent
such as Spruce Creek High
School senior Tyler Peter-
sohn, son of Volusia County
Beach Patrol spokesperson
Scott Petersohn, has already
committed to the team.

The program will begin at
the start of school in late
August.College president
Kent Sharples said he is
thrilled to bring competitive
swimming and diving back
to the campus.
"You don't know how
excited I am," Mr. Sharples
said. "We have a great pool
here; it's been part of this
facility for a long time. We
are reconstructing this
whole (program)."
As a winner of six Olympic
medals overall and two gold
and two bronze medals at
the recent Beijing Olympics,

services department took home that
The city held six Road Shows in a six-
month period, some focusing on the
budget and others open to any topic.
Mayor Ritchey, city manager Jim
Chisholm and each of the department
heads was in the hot seat at one point
or another.
The city mailed residents postcards
about the Road Shows and some of the
shows were taped and rebroadcast on
the government, cable access station
and online "to keep the events longer
than just one evening," Ms. Cerbone
The motivation behind the shows was
"unique," Mayor Ritchey said: "to take
government on the road to the, city" to
make it more transparent.
"It's a real privilege to receive this
(award)," he said. "It doesn't mean we're
home free, but it's a great start."
Officials said they plan to continue
the Road Shows in 2009. No dates have
been set.

Ryan brings star power to the team
even if it's "unofficial."
The 24-year-old, who currently lives
and trains in Gainesville said he plans
to assist the team for special events
and workshops.
One of those events is a planned
fundraiser swim meet between Ryan
and former American University swim-
mer Charlie Lydecker, 46, slated for the
Despite the age difference, Mr.
Lydecker remained confident of his
chances in a one-on-one showdown.
"I have one secret weapon that Ryan
does not know about," he said, reveal-
ing that former Olympic Gold medalist
Rowdy Gaines will be his coach.
Monetary contributions pledge
toward Mr. Lydecker will also buy him
an extra head start, officials said.
Area coaches welcomed the news of
i;an additionalisimvam ingeuand diving
program inVolusia County.
"I think it's been a long time in com-
ing," said Father Lopez swim coach
and master swimmer Charlie Schlegel.
"It should be a pretty good team," he
said. "We have so many good kids in
the area."

her petunias, snap drag-
ons and geraniums bask in

work on her herb garden.
"You can always return

ing right now over the
One of the nice native
plants to consider for win-
ter is the fire bush, which
Ms. Bledsoe describes as
"very attractive." It has
dark green leaves and gets
orange and red flowers.
"It's very low mainte-
nance and drought toler-
ant," she said.
Other good choices, Ms.
Bledsoe said, include the
camellia tea plant and the
butterfly bush, a wispy
plant that's cone-shaped
flowers come in a variety
of colors.

For that wintertime
tropical paradise, green
thumbs can go with cro-
tons, coconut palms and
the loropetalum, a small-
leaved reddish shrub that
looks nice against homes,
Ms. Bledsoe said.

Another winter pastime
for Mr. Wagner: his veg-

the cool weather, he said.

toes in the ground by Feb-

But, for the most part,
keep the action to a mini-
mum. Cut your grass only
once or twice a month and
fertilize only once for the
winter. Water your shrubs
less often. Wait until freeze
threats have passed to
prune your plants.
Instead, turn your
attention indoors and start
a container garden with
rubber plants, cacti or the
pathos vine, Ms. Bledsoe
And remember: winter
won't last forever.
"You can use the time,"
Ms. Roberts said, "to plan,
so you're ready for spring."

Lawn care tips for winter

Homeowners must remember that
the fall season is a transitional time for
turf grasses, when top growth slows as
energy is transferred to the roots for
winter survival. Lawns may start to look
dingy green, yellow or brown depend-
ing on the species.
St. Augustine grass usually stays
somewhat green well into the cooler
months, until a freeze occurs, which
can result in brown patchy areas.
Zoysia grass starts losing color
around November and at the first cold
snap, transitions into a state of dor-
mancy; even turning completely brown.
However, green color will return
when warm weather returns, typically
around late March or April.
Here are five tips for Florida home-
owners to keep their lawn healthy and
happy through the fall and winter sea-
"1.: Fertilize with a complete granular
fertilizer containing equal amounts of
nitrogen and potassium to build up the
roots. It is desirable to have at least half
of the nitrogen in a slow-release form.
2. Avoid over-watering. Watering

more than necessary will not help the
recovery of freeze damage and more
specifically, can bring Zoysia grass out
of dormancy and cause fungal diseases.
Since water is not %used by plants and
does not evaporate from soil as quickly,
not as much is needed during the cool-
er months. Irrigation may only be nec-
essary once per week when daytime
temperatures drop below 65 degrees.
3. Be sure to have a functioning rain
4. Continue to mow grass at least
once every two weeks, even if it is not
growing. This will prevent weeds from
seeding and proliferating in your lawn.
Keeping your lawn mowed will also
allocate energy that would be used for
seed production to the roots, and a
healthy root system is the key to a lush
5. Avoid mowing or walking on your
lawn after a freeze until all of the frost
has melted.

World-renowned illusionist, magician

hosts 'Intimate Evening'

engagement of "David
Copperfield, An Intimate
Evening of Grand Illu-
sion" at 5:30 p.m. and
8:30 p.m., Tuesday, Jan.
27, at the Peabody Audi-
torium in Daytona
The Grand Illusion
Tour reaches into the
audiences' minds and
hearts and takes them on
a feast of wish fulfill-
ment. Displaying his off-
the-cuff brand of humor,
Copperfield breaks new
ground in Grand Illusion
and takes his art to an
intimate, personal yet
universal dimension for
an evening of wonders.
"Grand Illusion was
partly inspired by an
unfulfilled wish of my
grandfather's that a lot of
people share winning
the lottery and finally
owning that one special
thing you always
dreamed of," Copperfield
said. "We call it An 'Inti-
mate' Evening of Grand
Illusion partly because
it's interactive. In one of
the pieces, for example,
the audience discovers
how to predict lottery
numbers that will come
up that night. They get to
participate in illusions
that blur the line

between magic and reali-
Imagine if you could
win the lottery, travel to
your perfect place in the
blink of an eye, own your
dream car, turn back the
hands of time, reunite
with a lost loved one and
it all comes true.
True to its title, .Grand
Illusion is the logical and
incredible evolution of
this conjurer's art. Cop-
perfield's goal in Grand
Illusion is to take your
dreams (and maybe a few
nightmares) and make
them come true using his
state-of-the-art wizardry.
"For magic to be rele-
vant," explains Copper-
field, "it has to evolve so
it keeps up with, or even
surpasses, the best film
and theater. I want to
base my work on what
people really dream

Week of XX-XX-2009

Aries-March 21-April 19
The main reason for your
success is all the hard work
and devotion to duties.
Whether it is family, work or
friends, you always sense
what needs to be done and
then do it. You are commit-
ted, involved and passionate.
You are highly deserving of
life's greatest riches. Keep it
up and 2009 will be your
best year ever.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
Taking care of family and
others with greater needs
than your own just recon-
firms your large heart and
spirit. What you give out
always comes back multi-
plied, although you don't do
it for personal gain. It just
shows what a fine person
you have grown into. Happy
New Year. Watch your
finances. Don't go overboard
on "can't live withouts."
Quality time is far greater
than a quantity of things. The
rewards of the personal
touch are great for all.

Gemini-May 21-June 21
Your creativity is especially
strong now. You will ,meet
life's challenges in the New
Year with your usual style
and luck. Why? Because you
have a guardian angel
watching over you. Most of
the things you worry about
are not going to happen any-
way. The key is to take care
of details as they arrive so
you don't have to put out
any forest fires later.

Cancer-June 22-July 22
You have approached the
holidays with gratitude and
thankfulness for all you
accomplished the past year.
You have a firm direction for
the new one coming. Keep a
strong focus on your top
goals and you will do much
more. The way you back up
your plans with action will
continue to insure success.

Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
The ideas continue to flow
and the light bulbs keep on
turning on. One good idea is
always the birth mother to
several others hanging
around. Get ready for more.
The New Year will be filled
and exploding with many
new opportunities. The key is
to focus on the ones that
make you the happiest first.
Success is sure to follow.

One of the greatest miracles on Earth

Of all the presents we
receive at the holi-
days, the greatest gift
is love. The physical, earthly
gifts can be lost or
destroyed, but the gift of
love lives in our hearts
forever. This doesn't just
come to us automatically.
For it to happen, we must
open our heart to be able to
receive and give love. The
process of love begins with
forgiveness. When we hold a
grudge or cast judgment on
ourselves or another person
we believe has committed a
real or imaginary crime, we
shut the heart and live on
the outside of our true self.
It's time to slay the ego,
begin to go inside, open the
heart, find our love, bring it
our and set it free.
We can't change the past.
But we can learn from it,
thank it for what it taught
us, forgive it as needed,
release it and move on and
grow a new and happier life.
This creates space and
hope to take action and
with perseverance create a
new cause and mission.
Start the NewYear with
renewed spirit and hope
and do all the great things
that inspire you and give


you purpose.
The one quality that puts
the odds of success in our
favor and makes us winners
is to finish what we start. If a
farmer were to give up on
his crop just as it is starting
to grow, it would die, the
weeds would take over and
the farmer would go broke.
If you want to run a race,
which is more important:
that you finish the race or
whether you win or lose? To
finish, of course, is the
answer. If you don't finish,
you will never win anything.
Hang in there. Perseverance
may be your greatest friend.
Be true to your friend.
Love is the great motiva-
tor. We can think about
something forever and not
act on it with the mind or
ego in control. Action
comes when we feel some-
thing in the heart. It heats
up and intensifies the desire
and motivates us to take

My greatest NewYear
desire is that you place love
above thinking or fear and
follow your heart. Keep it
open to receive and give
and you will see your
happiness level full and
overflowing. Then, when
others see your joy and
light, teach them your love
secrets. When we help
others overcome the world
and its suffering, this is .
giving back at its finest. You
can do it. It has been living
in your heart all your days
on earth.
The greatest gift on Earth
is to cheer another person
who has let the suffering
drain and burn them out.
This is the one of the
greatest miracles of life. To
give another person a smile,
a pat on the back or a kind
word should be something
we do every day of the year.
Just remember that in the
giving we receive back 100
fold. It's easy. Try it. You will
like it.
The sweetest news is the
best is yet to come, everyday
for all the days of the year to
come. Your life and your
destiny are now fulfilled. It
is truly this easy.

Hello smart shop-
pers. Hope your
holidays were
special; now you're
breathing a sigh of relief.
Let's start the New Year
right and answer a new
reader's request.
Homemade chicken
soup is in a class all its
own. If you don't want
additives, such as too
much salt, how about no
MSG? It's in there under
various names such as
hydrolyzed protein or
other natural flavors.
What? You've never
made chicken soup?
Believe me, it's a piece of
cake. The incredible
aroma of chicken soup
permeates a home with
love. You've noticed that
scent when you pull into a
shopping center that has a
restaurant with a smart
When I was a kid, my
maternal grandmother
made the best dfiicken
soup. In those days,
people raised their own
chickens and used every
part. Along with chicken
parts there were chicken

Chicken feet are loaded
with calcium and nutri-
ents, and they make a very
rich soup., When grandma
ate the feet (she was
seated at the head of the
table so I really couldn't
see into her bowl, after all
I was only 6), she did it
with such relish that I
asked if I could have some
the next time. When I
finally got them in my
soup bowl, I realized that
feet meant feet!
Couldn't do it, just
couldn't do it, but did I
learn? Not me! I won't
even tell you what tran-
spired with the head of the

While adding the feet,
which are very clean and
scrubbed to my soup, I felt
like a little kid doing
grandma's way. Of

course I removed them
from the pot before
Not expecting a positive
response to the feet, I was
amazed when I got letters
and e-mails, especially
from my Jewish readers,
thanking me for bring
them back to their child-
hood. It's a known fact
that when someone was
sick, all they needed was a
bowl of a Jewish mamma's
chicken soup (Jewish
[enicillin). It has to be a
European thing but now I
know the secret ingredient
was the feet!
My family made Italian
penicillin and I'll bet that
every family had their

chicken soup. Don't you
think that's pretty cool?
Chicken soup should be
a free meal. Whenever I
have any leftover chicken
cooked or raw I freeze it. I
don't recommend ABC
(already been chewed)'
pieces but anything else is
fine. If you insist on a
whole chicken, use a fryer,
not a soup chicken, the
meat is too tough. I always
use a pressure cooker for
chicken soup. In 30

minutes the soup is done.
I recommend removing
skin and fat, but a reader
stated, "That's not grand-
ma's way."
If you like, leave it all
and remove fat after soup
has chilled.
Enjoy. See you next

Navigating the drives and windows on your computer

ne of the "buzz-
words" you're
bound to hear while
learning to use your
computer is "navigate."
Unfortunately, no one ever
seems to take the time to
explain exactly what that
In a nutshell, "navigat-

ing" around your comput-
er simply means finding a
file or folder somewhere
on your hard drive, CD
drive or other removable
drive. (Online, "navigat-
ing" to a particular Web
site means to open that
Web address in your Web
OK, that sounds easy


enough, but what's it
really mean? How does
one "navigate" to a

particular file or folder on
your hard drive (or
CD/floppy drive)?
To answer that, let's talk
a bit about your drives
(hard drive, floppy or CD)
and how information is
organized on them and
then compare that to a
regular, old-fashioned file
Each of your drives is
very similar to a file
cabinet drawer in the way
it stores data. Like a file
cabinet drawer, there are
folders (represented on
the computer, remarkably
enough, by little manila
file folder icons), and there
are files that are stored in
the folders.
On your Windows
computer, each of your
drives, whether it's the
hard drive, floppy drive,
DVD drive, CD or remov-
able drive (like a USB or
thumb drive) is designated
by a letter followed by a
Your hard drive is
typically represented by a
C:. Your CD drive is
typically represented by a
D:. And additional drives
will be labeled E:, F:, G:,
Now, these letters can
and do vary from machine
to machine, but the rule is,
each drive gets a letter and
knowing what drive the
folder of file resides on is
the first step in navigating
to it.
Since each drive could
be considered similar to a
file cabinet drawer, when
you open a drive you will

see a number of manila
folder icons (and some
"loose files" that are not in
folders). You can navigate
to a specific folder by first
selecting the drive the
folder is in and then
double clicking each
folder until you find your
file. Keep in mind that
folders are usually "nest-
ed" within one or more
folders and to find the
folder or file you are
looking for you need to
know all of the folders it's
I know that must sound
complicated, but with
computers, it's really easy
once you keep in mind
that the drives are like file
cabinet drawers.
Now that we have the
foundation laid, let's take
a look at a real-life com-
puter example of just how
you would actually navi-
gate somewhere on your
computer and why.
Let's go with an example
of downloading a file from
the Internet. Let's say you
are about to download a
virus removal tool from
the Web.
As you begin the down-
load a "save in" window
will usually appear asking
where you want to save
your download. Typically,
the "save in" field is a pull
down menu and when you
click on it, it will expand,
showing you all of the
computer drives listed,
starting with the desktop
and ending with any
folders on the desktop.
(The reason Windows lists

the desktop first is to make
it easier to find that
universal workspace (the
desktop) without having to
go to the C: drive and find
it on your own).
Navigate to where you
want to save the file by
double clicking each drive
and folder until you are
where you want to save it.
Let's say for this exam-
ple you have a folder on
your C: drive for down-
loads. Let's also say that in
that downloads folder is
another folder called
"virus tools." To navigate
to that folder when
downloading the latest
virus removal tool, in the
"save in" field, double
click the C: drive, then the
downloads folder and then
the virus tools folder. Once
"virus tools" appears in
the "save in" field, make a
note of the name of the file
you are downloading and
click the save button.
The file will then down-
load to that folder and
when it's done, you can
navigate back to it to run it
by double clicking you're
"my computer" icon, your
C: drive, your downloads
folder and then your virus
tools folder. And now you
know whenever you read
"just navigate to whatever
on your computer." You
will have at least a funda-
mental understanding of
just what that means.

uncommon. You may keep
fifteen per day. While the
water is cold, reds will start
their day in deep water
and move into the shallows
once the sun is over head.
Shallow water over a black
mud bottom will be
especially productive as
the reds seek a few degrees
of warmth there.
Shrimp or cut bait will
work anywhere you find
fish. If you decide to throw
lures make your retrieve as
slow as possible and then
cut it by fifty per cent.
You can't make it too
slow! A jig should be

allowed to wash along in
the current wherever
In summer I begin each
morning throwing a top
water or diving plug and
switch to the jig by mid-
In winter I do the
opposite. Begin with a jig
early and go to the plug
once the sun is full up.
The fresh water presents
a unique fishing opportu-
nity at this time of year as
American shad migrate up
the St. Johns River to
spawn. Averaging twelve
to eighteen inches long,
they are acrobatic fighters
with flips and somersaults
in their repertoire. Fish for
them with flies or tiny
speckled perch jigs. I
prefer to slow troll four

rods each with multiple
jigs of no more than a sixty
fourth ounce in weight.
Look for them east of
Sanford near Crow's Bluff
or Marina Isle.
The shad run will end in
March. Speckled perch
action should be the best
of the year in the lakes on
the western edge of the
county. Troll deep water
for them just as described
for shad.
Dress warm and stay
with it and your reward
will be a mess of tasty
speckled perch. The cold
weather slows the fish
down, but they cannot go
all winter without eating.
If you find them and
properly present your bait
there is fun to be had most

For a lush green in the winter visit northern golf courses

One thing that I have
noticed with all of
this global warming
is that courses in south
Florida no longer over-seed
for the winter season. You
have to travel a little north
to get those lush rye greens,
tees and more.
Fortunately for me, this
newspaper's circulation
covers courses well north of
my So-Fla. home.
This past week, I played
my final round of golf for
2008. I traveled a short hop
and a skip up the interstate
to Viera, home of Duran
Golf Club. Here I was met by
an extremely friendly and
helpful staff. I was almost
certain that the holiday
season had something to do
with it, but I was assured by
the locals, that this is always
the case here.
The first thing that
jumped out at me was the
beautiful lush green of the
place. I had forgotten how
great the winter rye makes
everything look. Ball marks
on over-se0deded greens seem
to heal more quickly and
putts roll very smoothly on
them. The tees provide you
plenty of places to stick that
peg in the ground without
having to look for that last
bit of actual turf. I was in

When you set a plan in
motion and your heart is in it,
move it forward. Refuse to let
worry, doubt or indecision set
in or get you sidetracked. If
you aren't sure, ask for advice
or just wait. Then with
renewed clarity, move for-
ward again. Pain, hardship or
struggle is your gut instinct
telling you to be patient.
Heed this warning.

Libra-Sept. 23-Oct. 22
You have grown so much
spiritually the past year. Why?
Because you are more cen-
tered. You worry less. Your
self-confidence has
increased. You have much
new respect from family and
friends. The main reason for
this is all the love you show
to others. When you are
happy others are happy. You
are so much fun to be

Scorpio-Oct. 23-Nov. 21
You have a lot of positive
energy around you now. The
holidays are a strong time of
the year for you. The New
Year will offer even more.
Your instincts are sharp. Your
mind is working clearly. Your


Duran Golf Club, com-
pleted in 2005, is easily
accessible from just off
Interstate-95 inViera, just
north of Melbourne. The
course features five sets of
tees, with the longest
playing to 7,151 yards, a
very stern test considering
how much wind blows
through the fairways.
For less-accomplished
players, one can easily find
a set of tees to match his or
her skill or mood for the day.
The course also has a full
dining room, with a fantas-
tic menu complete with
early bird specials, a Sunday
jazz brunch and more. The
pro shop is filled with the
latest fashions and gear,
including a great selection
of golf balls, gloves and
caps. n

than enough energy to pro-
pel you forward toward your
dreams. You have a high
blessing on-your life.

Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Creative, projects want to
grow and become fruitful.
Use your imagination. Be
inventive. Bring your ideas,
visions and inspirations into
reality now. Make them real.
The only limits are what you
place on yourself. Dare to be
different. Now others want to
hang around just to see what
you are dreaming up next.
You were born for greatness.

Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
With the sun, Mars and Pluto
in Capricorn, you are super-
charged and ready to roll in
the New Year. Be totally hon-
est with yourself on your
desires. Clear up old issues.
Begin the New Year lighter
and hopeful. Get straight to
the point. Move ahead and
watch the universe bless you
with results even you will be
amazed at.

Aquarius-Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Many new growth opportuni-
ties are at hand. It is your
choice on how you will pro-

you truly want. Then write it
down. This makes a strong

The name Duran comes
from the land itself. Owned
by the Duda family for five
generations, the relatively
flat prairie was used as a
cattle ranch and sod farm.
The name is a combination
of "Du" from Duda and
"ran" from ranch.
The course was designed
by Lewis "Chip" Powell. His
keen eye for manipulating
an area's natural weather
patterns and wind tenden-
cies made him a logical
choice to incorporate
design features that consid-
ered the wide-open spaces
of an established sod farm,
along with the widely
variant coastal winds
characteristic of the East
Coast of Florida.
The combination resulted
in holes that can have as
much as a five-club differ-
ence from day to day.
. To build a golf course on a
piece of property this flat,
and void of all but one tree
at the start, requires moving

commitment. Now energy is
in your favor. Move out of
your comfort zone. You have
an opportunity foi awesome
growth. Now, it's all up to you
to make it happen.

Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
There is a silver lining behind
every cloud, as the old saying
goes. When one plan doesn't
work out, it means a better
one is just ahead. Persever-
ance is your best friend. You
have plenty of it. Quitting is
not an option. Try looking at
things from a different angle.
Move forward when the
vision is clear. You will contin-
ue to overcome any new
challenges with ease.

The result is a course with

including rolling terrain,
mounded greens and 15
The use of native grasses,
the importation of a several
thousand oaks, cypress and
native palms give the course
The course is very young,
and still maturing. Many of
the green complexes will
benefit from the growth that
years of care bring. The trees
on the course are young and
once they begin to fill out,
will provide needed defini-
tion. Until then, the course
can be very forgiving. That

is, unless the wind blows!
The course starts you off
on the right foot, a pleasant
par-5 with no surprises..I
began my day with a rare
birdie. The third is home to
the only tree standing when
construction began. The
lone palm stands guard on a
small peninsula that jets out
into the lake and warns
golfers of the danger lurking
On your way around the
course you are greeted with
a pleasurable playing
experience. Choosing the
proper set of tees gives one
just enough challenge. I
used most of the clubs in
my bag and quickly figured
out that the wind needed to

be taken into account on
every shot. My final tally for
the day was three birdies,
with several pars and my
usual bogey or worse on a
couple of holes. What a
great way to end the year.
Winter rates at Duran are
very competitive, with
Florida residents enjoying a
nice discount. The course is

Looking forward to a new, better year in 2009

promised I'd let you know
how I survived my first
holidays without Roy.
As I write this, Thanksgiv-
ing has passed and Christmas
and NewYear's are still ahead.
Jan. 4 is our anniversary. I
know there are rough days
coming, but there is also

The weekend before
Thanksgiving, while people
still had not turned inward
toward family, as we do, I did
several fun things.
I went to a Lovin' Spoonful
concert with my friend,
Peggy, and we had a great

time listening to great songs.
On Sunday I took a boat
ride up the Loxahatchee
River, something I'd never
done. It was terrific and I only
wish I'd known about it to
take Roy.
There's the rub. It's a great
idea to have things that are

fun to look forward to, but it's
unrealistic to think that they
will make you forget your
loved one or make the hurt go
Again, I have to remind
myself that there is no "get-
out-of grief-free card," no
early parole. Grief is a
process. You go through it
and it takes time. Still, there
are things I have tried to do
to make it a little easier.
I am still going for grief
counseling at Treasure Coast
Hospice and I can't speak
highly enough about it.
Yes, the almost unbearable
pain of the early grief has
subsided, however, I still feel I

trainer. I need to get my
health back on track and I
needed a routine. I went
three times a week for two
months and it was terrific
and did me a lot of good. It
was also expensive.
Near the end of the two
months, I was talking about it
with a friend and we decided
to continue what I'd been
doing in our community
gym, three times a week.
We've been doing it for 50
minutes, three times a week
and we both enjoy the sense
of accomplishment and
opportunity to talk. We've

understand what you're
going through helps you feel
less alone and makes you
realize that what you're
feeling is perfectly normal.
During the Thanksgiving
weekend, I talked on the
phone more than usual,
because I needed to hear
people's voices.
I am learning to live alone,
although I don't really like it. I
have lots of books and jigsaw
puzzles, which I find distract
me when I start to get upset
about something. I have
learned to accept the sadness
and appreciate those days
when the fog lifts a bit. I do
laugh and I am surprised, but
I have discovered that life
goes on and if you have the
chance to laugh, take it.
I know the rest of Decem-
ber will be difficult. I am
looking forward to a new
year, a better year. As
always, I'll keep you posted.
