MARTIN COUNTY Whether starting a new business or growing an existing one, Martin C ounty entrepreneurs have a new resource in I ndian River State College's business incubator. While IRSC has operated a version of the incubator for several years now at Stuart Square, they are adopting a new model and moving the service to the IRSC Stuart campus to serve small businesses better and help keep Martin County a great place to live and work. "W e want to be the place where Martin C ounty comes for business services," said Elizabeth Gaskin, Provost of the IRSC Chastain campus in Stuart. Where before the program was more about leasing office space, it's now about serving business by offering workshops, individual mentoring, and shared workspace. The on-campus incubator will offer a more dynamic environment while utilizing access to faculty, students and more extensive business services. The incubator can help those with a brilliant idea form a business plan so they can hit the ground running as well as those with an established business realize their full potential. The S mall Business Development Center will be on hand with free business consulting, too. B usiness Incubator memberships start at $25 per month and include services like business planning and help with how to get a new business started successfully. TREASURE COAST M any residents were alarmed last week after three cases of mosquitotransmitted dengue fever we re r eported, but according to Gene Lemire of Mosquito Control there is no cause for alarm. Last week the health department alerted Martin C ounty Mosquito Control to the cases and they immediately took action, sweeping the area surr ounding the initial incident with mosquito foggers and inspecting yards for breeding grounds. T eams canvassed a five to six block area, knocking on doors and treating areas where they found evidence of the species of mosquito that spread the illness that causes flu-like symptoms. D engue fever is spread when a mosquito bites an infected individual and then proceeds to bite others. The three infected MARTIN COUNTY Martin C ounty Sheriff William Snyder has a zero tolerance policy for bullying. A policy that led to the announcement of a new No Bully Z one initiative. The initiative was announced just in time for the start of a new school year and was inspired by all of the violent events that have r eceived national recognition in the past few months. S heriff Snyder wants nothing more than to make school a safe place for children so he created a way for the Sheriff's Office, superintendent and schools in the district to work together to stop the harmful effects of bullying. "W e want to create a climate where bullying is not tolerated," said Sheriff Snyder. A ccording to the sheriff, bullying is all about an imbalance of power, the strong tormenting the w eak, but, "I plan to bring the balance back into the relationship," Sheriff Snyder said. He wants students to know they are not alone, to see him and his officers as big brothers in green uniforms who will always stand behind them. B ut he knows that students aren't always likely to step into an office to submit a report. "W e really needed a way for a y oung person to r each out to us without drawing attention to themselves," Sheriff Snyder said. No w all a bullying victim has to do is submit a report online from their computer or phone in the priv acy of their bedroom or car.

M en of all ages, many of whom will be sporting bright red stilettos, will come together at three locations on Saturdays in O ctober in an effort to show their opposition to domestic violence and their support of the work S afe Space does. B ecause real men step up. W omen and children are invited, too, of course, but it's the brawny males dedicated to walking a mile in four-inch heels that really r aises awareness for victims of domestic violence. J ill Borowicz, CEO of S afe Space, knows that in the battle against domestic violence, women can't stand alone. "W e want men in this fight with us," Mrs. Bo ro wicz said. "We want them to walk hand-inhand with us in this." Mrs. Borowicz knows it's a difficult topic to discuss, but the event helps raise awareness and funds for S afe Space's many protective and empowering services in a fun and lighthearted way. F amilies walk together, r ed footwear abounds, signs are raised in support and awards are even given to the largest team at each event, the most spirited walker, and the walker who raised the most money. "I t' s a really fun way of getting out a very serious message," Mrs. Borowicz said. It also helps raise awareness for Safe Space and their services, including education programs, support groups, court advocacy and emergency shelters for women exper iencing domestic violence. Last year 350 men alone came out and slipped into a pair of heels and about $40,000 was raised at all three walk locations.

"H opefully it's over with," Mr. Lemire said. The type of mosquito is a non-roaming va r iety, according to Mr. Lemire, and while his team treated more than150 homes in the area that were unknowingly breeding mosquitoes, he believes the problem has been resolved. Mr. Lemire said residents shouldn't be ov erly concerned with contracting a mosquito-transmitted illness like dengue. "I t' s a rare occurrence," Mr. Lemire said. "It has only occurred twice in Martin County and has never turned into an epidemic." B ut as public safety is one of Mosquito C ontrol's goals, there are a few things they recommend people do to limit their exposure to the pests. When outside, use mosquito repellent and wear long sleeves and pants. In your yard, flush out breeding colonies by turning over empty containers like buckets, tires and dog bowls that can collect water and encourage egg laying. Mr. Lemire also recommends cleaning out birdbaths on a weekly basis and r emoving any unused vessels that hold water. Mo squito Control will continue to perform periodic checks and maintain their mosquito fogging routes five nights a w eek, but Mr. Lemire said residents can r elax knowing there is really no cause for concern.

W ater farming pilot project gets nod TREASURE COAST As part of the broad effort to restore and protect the St. L ucie River and Estuary, the South Florida Water Management District approved a water farming pilot project to store excess water on fallow citrus land before it can flow to the estuary. "W orking with local landowners to identify property for water storage is an integral part of our strategy to address high flows into the estuaries," said D aniel O'Keefe, SFWMD Governing board chairman. "This pilot project on citrus land highlights the District's expanded efforts to implement nearterm solutions that make a difference." U nder the pilot program, Caulkins Citr us Company will pump water onto 450 acres of its property located along the St. L ucie Canal in Martin County. This can capture an average of 6,780 acre-feet of water a year that would otherwise flow along the canal from Lake Okeechobee and surrounding basins into the St. L ucie River and Estuary. The three-year pilot project will provide vital information on the proposed concept of retaining storm water on citr us properties. W ith Lake Okeechobee still rising from above-average rainfall, the private landowner on this project is already pumping water onto the property on an emergency basis under an agreement with the District. To date, approximately 200 acre-feet of water have been diverted from the watershed that drains to the S t. Lucie Estuary. The District issued a request for water farming pilot project proposals in April in close coordination with several partner agencies including: Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Florida Department of Environmental Protection U.S. Department of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service Fi ve proposals were evaluated and r anked. Caulkins Citrus Company, the first ranked respondent, came to an agreement with the District, which will invest approximately $1.2 million in the project, or about $76 per acre-foot per y ear of storage. M anaging water on these lands, known as the Dispersed Water Management Program, is one tool to reduce the amount of water flowing during the wet season into the lake and discharged to coastal estuaries for flood protection. Pr ivate ranchlands in this program curr ently provide a storage volume of more than 60,000 acre-feet. S hallow water retention also provides groundwater recharge for water supply, potential for water quality improvements and rehydration of drained ecosystems. The program encourages property o wners to retain water on their land r ather than drain it, accept and detain r egional runoff or do both.

For many years, I've worn two hats, one as a Toyota dealer and the other as an advocate for car buyers and owners of all brands. I take stringent measures to separate the two. As a consumer advocate for all car o wners, I know that about 8.5 out of 10 of all cars on the r oad are not Toyotas. C oming across as a Toyota dealer would appear to be self-serving and would cause me to lose all credibility and objectivity to the vast majority of car owners. Likewise, it wouldn't be unseemly for me, wearing my To y ota dealer hat, to remind my prospective customers that the Chevrolet Impala was rated higher than the To y ota Camry by Consumer R eports. In my role as consumer advocate, I've written a book, C onfessions of a Recovering C ar Dealer, write a blog, www.EarlStewartOnCars.co m Twitter, @earloncars.com, www.YouTube.com/EarlOnC ars and a column for the H ometown News I host with my wife, Nancy, a weekly r adio show on WSVU, "Earl S tewart on Cars." It 's a live call-in talk show that attracts one of the largest audiences in that time slot and car owners of all makes call me for advice and with their comments. I speak publically all over South F lorida at Chambers of C ommerce, Rotary and K iwanis Clubs, churches and synagogues, condo associations, public libraries and any other organization that asks me to speak. I'm proud to say that I've been invited d to speak at the annual installation banquet meeting of the famous 82nd Airborne Division this Dec. 8. I've been interviewed and quoted often by the national media including CNN, Fox, ABC, NBC, CBS, the Wall St r eet Journal, USA Today, NY T imes, Automotive News, US N ews and World Report, Fo r tune Forbes, and the Associated Press. I've lobbied for better laws and enforcement of existing laws with Florida politicians including testifying before the Florida Senate Commerce Committee in an effort to outlaw the dealer fee. I also work with the Florida A utomobile Dealers Association, FADA, in efforts to create an enforceable code of ethics that can improve the sales practices, advertising and the image of Florida car dealers. As a consumer advocate, to be totally objective, I cannot exclude Toyota dealers, the To y ota distributor (Southeast To y ota), or Toyota Motor S ales/Toyota Motor Corp. from criticism. How would it look for me to point out problems with only Honda, GM, Ford, Chrysler, and other non-Toyota dealers and manufacturers? When a To y ota dealer runs an illegal or unethical ad, it's my duty to point this out to him and the public, just like I would a H onda or Ford dealer. As you might surmise, I get a lot of heat from many car dealers. Many accuse of me of being the reason they have such a bad image. The latest G allup Annual poll again r anked car dealers last in ethics and integrity among all professions. Car dealerships also receive the greatest number of complaints among all retail businesses. C ar dealers want to shoot me, the messenger, rather than look in the mirror.

Most of the time, when I get calls for computer help I can usually figure out how to fix things out instinctively. Why? W ell because I examine the contents of the different menus looking for the option that will most likely get me closer to my goal (while keeping in mind whatever it is I'm trying to do). As an added bonus, just about every program out there that has pull down menus have "Help" listed as the last one to the right. So, by the time I get to the last pull down menu I can always open that programs help file and do a search on what I'm trying to do. The help file will then list all the topics that contain whatever words I searched on and from there I can usually figure out how to take the next step. Let's take a look at this in an example. Let's say I'm writing my column with a typical word processing program and I wanted to make the next line that I type bold and larger. Let's also say that I only have a very basic understanding of computers. At this point I have two choices, I can stare at the screen with a blank expression and then call Bob (who's pretty good with computers) and ask him or, I can start looking around the screen for something that may help me reach my goal. As I move my mouse (and my eyes!) around the screen I notice a couple of things; first at the top of the screen, above where the words are being typed, there are (usually) rows pull down menus and buttons available. And, as I move my mouse slowly over the buttons, little boxes pop up telling me what each button does. When I click on the "File" option it opens (or pulls down") and I can see all of the commands that are available that have to do with F iling. As I move my mouse to the right, the File pull down menu closes and the Edit menu opens displaying all of the commands available for editing. N ext the View pull down menu opens and then the I nsert menu opens. As each menu opens I look at all the options available and for each one I ask myself, "Does this option look like it will help me change my text to bold and larger?" And as each menu does not present an option I go on to the next one eventually getting to the "F ormat" pull down menu. When Format opens, I see it lists Bullets and numbering Borders and shading and what's this? Font?? Hmmm. Let me think I'm trying to change the formatting of my text and text is made up of "fonts," Thinking I may be on the r ight track, I click the Fonts option and a screen opens that allows me to change the characteristics of the type. B ingo! Exactly what I am looking for! It says I am typing in Times New Roman, R egular, Size 12. I change the specs to Times New Roman, B old, Size 14, click OK and voila! My typing is now larger and darker. O k, so, that rather tame demonstration is just an example of how intuitive computing works; at no time did I ever get the urge to go get a book or call tech support for help, I kept in mind what I was trying to do and, after seeing what options were available, discovered the answer on my o wn. Instinctively. No w, I know what a lot of y ou are thinking; that the things you have trouble doing are far more complex than just changing the characteristics of text, how can this possibly help me? And to that I answer the lesson is not in how to change the font size, the lesson is where to go for y our answers! N otice that the pull down menus I looked at were all within the program I was using. You should look at the menus and options available within the program where y ou are stuck. Also notice that each pull down menu is a category; all filing options are under "File" and we found our Font options under the "F ormat" pull down menu. That was no coincidence. I would have been very surprised to find the Fonts option under the File pull down menu but starting at F ile and moving to the right covers all the bases and r apidly gets you familiar with all the menus available.

Dear Welfare RanterI am not the one who labeled you that but it suits you. You have not done your research. Many people are on welfare because the government put them there. Yes! It's the government's fault. Take this: Our court system. Family law judges are protecting deadbeats and not the children even when there is solid evidence. I have taken my ex to court 12 times in six years. He ow es over $110,000. I usually win but he only has to pay anywhere between $3,000$0. It is cheaper to purge than to pay child support. The last time I took him to court I had a detective and his sworn investigation which revealed a business and thousands in income. I also produced 30 copies of checks written out to the deadbeat with his endorsement on the back. G uess what the judge said? "Not enough!" Did you know (no, y ou didn't do your research) that in 2010 in just the state of Florida alone, deadbeats owed over 6 trillion dollars...more than the r ichest man(Bill Gates) in the world! And that is just one state out of 50. He r e's another thing: the government has allowed hospitals, doctors, and insurance companies to price-gouge patients into debt and homelessness. One can of Dermaplast from the drugstore cost $8 yet on the hospital bill I was charged $50. And the hospitals will not allow you to bring in your own drugs-preventing you from being a good steward. And how about this: the government did not do their job in monitoring the banking and mortgage industry before we fell into a bad recession, (the government is more interested in listening to our phone calls apparently), and this too caused many to lose their jobs and homes and go on welfare. How about these big employers who are cutting the hours if full-timers to part time so they pay less out and drop benefits? And another...all those illegals taking up what few jobs left in this recession instead of employing Americans. Let's not forget about our dear president himself. He preached he would lower the national debt, but now it is doubled! He promised new jobs with the so-called stimulus money. D idn't work. He bailed out banks(with taxpayer money) who then turnaround and partied on that money and charged us outrageous new fees for stupid things...all of this hurts everyone who's trying to make ends meet and when we don't we need food stamps and Medicaid. It appears to me that you were not affected by the recession or anything of the above. Maybe you are rich and live a very sheltered life unaware of everything that is happening with our country, the president, and the people. Welfare ranter, I hope I opened your eyes but I doubt it. T eachers unions?This is in response to the reader who sent in the rant last week titled "What happened to teaching?" I have to question where that reader is from. They couldn't possibly reside in St. Lucie County and come to the conclusions they have drawn. In the opposite of that reader, I still think teaching is a revered profession and I have a high level of appreciation and respect for all the teachers I know. As far as attributing the demise to the teachers' unions with a powerful force... well, frankly that is just misinformation. Unions are not even allowed in Florida for teachers. What they have may be dubbed a "union" but in essence it is not much more than a bargaining unit with little if any power at all. And I say that with no disrespect to them. They do the best they can up against a powerful school board and an ov erbearing, overrated, overpaid, and overstaffed administration who in my opinion may say they always have the best interest of the student in mind but clearly don't. The comment to pay scale increases is at most laughable since the teachers I know, at least the ones in St. Lucie County, went the last five years without any pay increases and have even been asked to take pay cuts. The only part of the rant at all that I agree with is that the kids are getting lost in the shuffle. But the ones responsible for that are the administrators and politicians, not the teachers. Most teachers across the United States remain underpaid, and are r outinely thrown under the bus and used as scapegoats for our problems with education. Teachers are in the profession because they want to educate our children and are dedicated to help them to succeed in this world. Their desire to teach has not been diminished by the constant red tape; pay cuts, and badgering of administrators and politicians. They remain committed and will continue to fight for what is best for their students. My hat goes off to every teacher and they have my highest respect for the hard work they do under the guidelines they are expected to perform under and the unnecessary hoops they are made to jump through. For the record, I am not a teacher.A note to who violated our privacy If y ou were hungry and came to my door I would have given y ou food. Instead you chose to take sentimental items from deceased friends and items from our sons serving their country in Iraq and Afghanistan. We are in our 70s; if your parents we re violated would you not care? Do something better with y our lives. Exonerate yourselves and return items (make your parents proud). Remember, you can run but you can't hide. God sees all!Sunpass causes unemployment?If y ou buy and use "Sunpass" you are contributing to a toll collector losing their job and having to go on unemployment and maybe even on some other government assistance such as housing subsidies, food stamps, etc. The statement above is an absolute fact. It has already caused many collectors to lose their full time jobs.Do somethingWhen you sit and look at any local causeway or Hutchinson I sland at night, it is breathtaking the reflections of the lights on the water, hearing the sounds of fish jumping and birds diving but In the day time we have a different story that makes my heart bleed. Imagine being lucky enough to grow in Martin C ounty and having the opportunity to be able to water ski, fish, swim, paddle board, surf, etc To be able to sit on the ri ver and watch children play and watch people throw a stick in the water for their dogs to go fetch. After all that's what Martin County is all about, the quality of life, good clean fun and family activities, to help maintain that quality of life we have become accustomed to A wonderful area for tourism due to the wonderful beaches, parks on the water, restaurants on the water and the ability to be able to approach it all by water. Many families rely on clean water in Martin County, due to owning any business that sells or rents anything from sailboats and paddle boards to fishing tackle, bait and surf boards or a restaurant on the water. An area where it would not be Sunday if there were not a thousand boats hanging out on the Sandbar, swimming, grilling and just hanging out with friends and family. It is like taking a mini vacation in your own back yard. Let's not forget Labor D ay the last weekend before the chaotic holidays begin fun in the sun and water everywhere. The draining of Lake Okeechobee will mean total devastation for the entire Treasure C oast. Local business owners will cease to exist therefore their homes will go into foreclosure, causing a trickledown effect. Cr eating many abandoned establishments. T ourism will cease to exist. Why would you go somewhere in Florida that you could not rent or buy any gear necessary for water sports and not be able to swim or even enter the water ways. What will become of this beautiful community full of great people? Please we all need to do what we can to help, for the future of our children and of our community? Regarding Kaitlyn HuntI just read an article regarding Kaitlyn Hunt. Here's something I'd like to know Why didn't the 14 year old's mother get involved before she waited for the other turned 18? Why did she wait? Sounds like she just wanted to be vindictive and now the government wants blood out of this. Now, I looked up young teenage pregnancy and was startled by the age; anywhere from 14 16 yrs. old and when these young women get pregnant, where are these parents and the government? Most of them r un off to the welfare office and start that domino effect rolling. No w, why isn't the paper filled with the guys and women who are involved in this sexual misconduct in the paper? That's wrong too but the government doesn't say anything about that, other than cutting a check to the young mother to help support her and however many kids she has. Just so they can keep their political careers going at the expense of the tax payer. Oh, by the way those kids having kids, the funds to help pay for them come right out of the honest tax payers pocket. And let's not forget about any family foundation as well which leads to crime. Everything in life has consequences. Editor's note: A ccording to the original arrest affadavit,it states that Kaitlyn Hunt started dating the victim November 2012.Her 18th birthday was in August 2012.About immigrationDo folks realize that this country lets in more than one million people a year through legal immigration, and that there are about four million people in line waiting their turn to get in? That doesn't sound like a broken immigration system to me, but rather like one that is quite robust. Got something to say?

consumer advocate, you might be surprised to know that Toyota doesn't like it either. Toyota created a contractual document several years ago entitled the To y ota Dealer Ad Covenant, TDAC. The primary motivation for this document which all Toyota dealers must sign and agree to was to keep dealer advertising on the "up and up". But there's also language in the TDAC which prevents one Toyota dealer from being critical of another. It makes no difference whether the criticism is true and factual or not. The r ationale behind this rule is that Toyota does not want its dealers to "damage Toyota's brand". This is what I have a problem understanding. The To y ota brand is based on the quality of the cars they build and the positive perception of the Toyota manufacturer as a company that shows care, concern, empathy and integrity toward their own employees and their car o wners. The Toyota brand r anking has always been very high. It slumped slightly after the sudden acceleration r ecall, but has currently risen back to #1 among all auto manufacturers. The public sees the Toyota brand as separate and apart from the dealer brand. The brand of "John Smith Toyota", the dealer, is based on how he treats his customers, how he advertises, and how ethical and honestly he sells and services Toyotas. Unfortunately, Toyota dealers' brand image has been ranked consistently below average by JD Powers's surveys of all other makes for many years, while Toyota, the manufacturer's brand has always been very high. When a Toyota dealer damages his dealership brand, Toyota buyers give their business to the dealers with the better r eputation. This is the way the free market place is supposed to operate and is what competition is all about. By "keeping quiet" about problems that Toyota dealers have, one prolongs the process of correction. In their advertising, all competing r etailers compare their strong points to their completion. It 's survival of the fittest in the marketplace. There is very little, if any, correlation between Toyota's brand and To y ota dealers' brand; If there we re, how could Toyota's brand remain the highest and To y ota dealers' brand remain near the lowest for so many y ears? To y ota dealers compete against each other to a greater extent than they compete against other makes. Car buyers usually make up their mind which make they want to buy before they select their dealer. Their next step is to choose the dealer that they can most trust to give them a good price and treat them with courtesy, respect and integrity. For all Toyota dealers to be contractually forbidden to speak even the truth in criticism of another To y ota dealer seems almost like a restraint of trade. The car consumer should be entitled to all of the facts about the advertising and sales practices of those r etailers that they buy from. To y ota dealers know more about this subject than anybody else. A Toyota dealer can tell you that the Honda dealer is using bait and switch advertising but he can't say that about his Toyota competitor. But, with that said, I signed the TDAC and I will honor my commitment. U nfortunately, there's been some conversation recently about gagging the "other Earl S tewart," Earl Stewart, the consumer advocate. It 's been suggested to me that I may be in violation of the Toyota Dealer Ad Co venant if I post a YouTube video of another Toyota dealer's unethical TV ad on www.YouTube.com/EarlOnC ars a website that Earl S tewart the consumer advocate uses to expose illegal and unethical advertising by car dealers of all makes, including Toyota. To y ota is the largest seller of new cars in this market and for me to exclude them from criticism would come across as wrong and self-serving. I didn't forfeit my first amendment rights when I became a Toyota dealer. I r emain a U.S. citizen and r etain my rights of freedom speech as an individual and as a member of the press (my book, radio show, blog, and H ometown News column). I have to draw a line in the sand if anyone tries to take away my constitutional r ights.Business www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, August 23, 2013 Martin County A7 776920 075471MassageEnvy.com € Convenient Hours €Franchise AvailableOpen 7 Days:M-F 8am-10pm,Sat 8am-8pm,Sun 10am-8pmSTUART1503 NW Federal Hwy N. of Rossevelt Bridge, by Publix(772) 497-7500 PORT ST LUCIE WEST1707 NW St Lucie West Blvd Next to Five Guys(772) 344-0222€ See clinic for details.

In 2010 he saw an opportunity to jump into business for himself and took it. Pettit F amily Auto Transport was born. The company that offers transportation of everything from cars and trucks to boats and mobile homes also prides itself on high standards and great customer service. That's r eally what sets us apart from other auto transport services," Mr. Pettit said. He doesn't charge a deposit until vehicles are safely loaded for transport and refuses to use many carriers because they don't meet Pettit Family A uto Transport's standards of quality. He and his wife, Carla Pettit, who run the business together, ensure that every job is done right, for the best price, and in a timely manner. Mr. Pettit says it all comes down to family values, the r oot of his solid business ethics and white glove service. Those values are how he plans to succeed and share the business with his two daughters, now 2 and 6. P ettit Family auto specializes in classic car and dealership fleet transport but are a v aluable recourse for seasonal residents, vacationers, and those re-locating for jobs who want to save driving time, mileage, and wear and tear on their vehicle but need a mode of transportation once they reach their intended destination. "B ut we're a lot more than just cars," Mr. Pettit said. The business also offers the transportation of large equipment, four-wheelers and the like all across the nation and the world. At the end of the day, it's about more than making a buck for Mr. Pettit and his family. It's about delivering precious cargo in perfect condition and doing it better and with higher standards than anyone else in the business. "M y biggest satisfaction is making the customer happy," Mr. Pettit said. P ettit Family Auto Transport, LLC can be found in the Cr exent Center at 850 N.W. F ederal Highway in Stuart.

TREASURE COAST F lorida Fish and Wildlife C onservation Commission and National Oceanic and A tmospheric Administration researchers are asking anglers to help them gather information about the important Atlantic red snapper fishery. The recreational red snapper season is open Aug. 23 through A ug. 25 (a Friday through S unday) in south Atlantic federal waters. FWC researchers and volunteers will be out along Florida's east coast during each day of the season, asking recreational fishers about their red snapper trips and their catch. Researchers will also collect biological samples of harvested fish, which will not affect the fillet, to help determine the age of each red snapper. B iologists sampled more than 2,000 red snapper during the federal opening in 2012 as a result of these efforts. Anglers' survey responses and biological samples will give researchers valuable data about the red snapper fishery. Fisheries scientists could use this information in future population assessments. While the federal opening will have no size limit and a bag limit of one fish per person per day, in F lorida state waters there is a 20-inch total length minimum size limit, in addition to a bag limit of two fish per person, per day. Vessels with red snapper smaller than the state's minimum size limit must travel through state waters without stopping and have fishing gear stowed. When anglers catch a tagged red snapper, FWC r esearchers ask that they r eport it to the Angler Tag R eturn Hotline at (800) 367-4461. When calling the hotline, anglers should indicate the species, tag number, date and time of capture, catch location, fish length, type of bait used and whether the fish was kept or released. If the fish is released, the angler is asked to leave the tag in place to help with future data collection.

S ummer temperatures make me want to sit, sleep and do as little as possible I may even use live bait. I know, hurry up, and let's go catch a fish. S ummer's bright sun and high water temperature mean you have to fish early in the day. If you're looking for trout, it's best to be in the water before sun up, because once that sun comes out the fish (as I) will be looking for a comfort zone. B ite time is very narrow; from dark to that 7 a.m. That is when the fish are looking to eat and you need to be there. T arpon and snook, with a mix of jacks, will be at the bridges, power plant, and in the surf just about anywhere there is bait. Low light is the key. I'm not going to say they will not be there midafternoon, but I'm lazy and need to be in my comfort zone. There are good catches of trout, with a few reds in the mix, but only if the blue fish don't cut you off from the north side of Nettles island to Bear Point. Fish top water and fish early. The bridges have snapper, black drum and a few trout eating shrimp. Fish the shaded and deeper water. As crazy as it sounds, I saw some pompano from the bridge at the east end of the causeway and blues in the flats. Su rf has been hot, hot or nothing. If you're looking for tarpon, look for the bait schools; the birds will give their location. At the moment, most of the action has been south of the Fort Pierce area, but it will change as quickly as it starts. Their eating habits keep them on the move. Look at what they are eating and match the profile. The jacks don't care if it moves they want a bite. F ish the outer edges of the bait schools. That is where they are feeding and small baits are preferred. Rapala X-rap, MirroLure or a DOA B air buster to name a few will get the attention you are looking for. There are plenty of whiting to take home for dinner, so don't forget the ice. Offshore, there's a good catch list this week with wahoo, kings, cobia and ye s, the bonita are still with us. W ahoo were from 80-foot out on deep baits. Finally, anglers are taking baits deep and finding some real nice fish, most in the 30pound class. These fish we re north and south of the inlet. So why am I not out there? I'm still lazy. There's a good bite of king fish. Again, the down baits are working, but there we re a few dolphin and sails to get some attention, but a wahoo will start your heart.

JEN5OFF Out & about INDIANTOWN On A ug. 27, R3, an outreach and rehabilitation ministry, will be producing a talent showcase full of dancing, singing, reciting, even an African tribal show, all in the hope of inspiring dreams. It will be a "Night of E xtravaganza" as elementary to high school students present their talents to the public, many for the very first time. R3 is a nonprofit organization that aims to r estore, revitalize and r ebirth at-risk teens and those who have spent time in the juvenile justice system by mentoring, instilling values and leading them in a positive direction. R3 also runs two residential facilities, one for boys and one for girls. There's so much that we do," said administrator Leann Kikivarakis. Gators, snakes, more, in expo INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Long graying beards are appearing on the faces of many people in Indian River County in anticipation of a famous bearded guest at the Florida Outdoors Expo later this month. J ohn Godwin, cast member of the hit A&E reality television series "Duck D ynasty" will be the featured guest at this year's event and will pose for photos and sign autographs, said Lieutenant Dave Dangerfield, event coordinator and Indian River County firefighter and emergency medical technician. The Florida Outdoors E xpo is scheduled to be held at the Indian River C ounty fairgrounds on Aug. 24 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and A ug. 25 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. A dmission is $7 for guests 12 and older. Children y ounger than 12 are free with a responsible supervising adult, a press release said. A portion of the proceeds benefits the Indian River C ounty Firefighters' Benevolent Association, which distributes funds to local charities, Lt. Dangerfield said. Close to 200 vendors are expected at the event with a va r iety of outdoor and sports products for sale and display. N ew this year to the expo will be a gator wrestling demonstration and animal education program by G atorland, Lt. Dangerfield said. Last year, the featured celebrity was Paul Bedard of the Animal Planet television show "Gator Boys," and even though the weather was full of rain, wind and storm clouds, people still drove out to event to meet him, Lt. Dangerfield said. The Gatorland demonstrations will give visitors the chance to see what gator wrestling is truly like, he said. The expo will include a gun and knife show, an RV and boat show, a Florida Fi sh and Wildlife hunter See EXPO, B2Night of Extravaganza' to take place Aug. 27 Ma r tin CountyEntertainmentDining &SECTION B WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM FRIDAY, AUG. 23 2013Expo to draw 10K guests to fairgroundsBy Jessica Tugglejtuggle@hometownnewsol.com Beach event to raise turtle awareness MARTIN COUNTY S and sculptures of all shapes and sizes will line S tuart Beach on Aug. 31 in the hope of building awareness. Awareness of how human actions can impact sea turtles' well-being, that is. F lorida Oceanographic S ociety is hosting the first ever family-friendly, turtlefriendly event to encourage the community to come together and have fun learning about the effects that something as innocent as a day at the beach can have on sea turtle nesting and hatching. Ellie Van Os, FOS director of education and exhibits, said that many beachgoers, even locals who have frequented these beaches for ye ars, don't know that the holes their children dig and castles they build can be detrimental to turtles. S and structures can become an obstruction to turtles coming to the beach to lay their eggs and holes can be disastrous to tiny hatchlings attempting to make it to the ocean. The solution, according to Ms. Van Os is to leave no trace. "H ave fun at the beach, use it all day long, but r emember that turtles are using it all night long and we need to leave it better than we found it," Ms. Van Os said. S he wanted to create a way to get that message out while still having a great time at the beach and the sand-sculpting contest was born. "W e' re doing it to show that we can have fun but we can also leave no trace," Ms. V an Os said. T eams of up to six can r egister to participate on S aturday where they will have three hours and a 20x20 foot space to construct something magical out of sand. The possibilities are endless, but creativity is key because the judges will award prizes for the best marine animal, most creative, and the sculpture with the best turtle conserv ation theme. Let your imagination r un wild," said Carla George from FOS.By Alisha McDarrisF or Hometown News See TURTLE, B2By Alisha McDarrisF or Hometown NewsINDIAN RIVER COUNTY When visiting the beach, there is comfort knowing that if the waves get too strong or the undertow takes over, a lifeguard is nearby, watching carefully, and waiting to help. U nfortunately, due to an already stressed budget, there was a threat that lifeguards across the beaches would decrease leaving ocean-lovers alone on the sandy shore. One group has decided that the risk of not having trained lifeguards on the beaches far outweighs the benefits, and is doing their part to help costs associated with maintaining their presence. E pic-Sessions Surf, S kim and Paddle school has teamed up with Mulligans in Vero Beach to present the sixth annual S kim Jam. The event will take place on Aug. 31 on the beach in front of Mulligans from 9 a.m. 4 p.m. In y ears past, the event has raised money for St. J ude's Children's Hospital. Howev er this year, Vero B each Lifeguard Association, a group started to keep local lifeguards on the beaches, will be the main beneficiary, with St. J ude's receiving 10 percent of the proceeds.

After recognition is given and photos have been snapped to record the occasion, participants will assist with leveling the beach and r emoving debris in order to leave no trace. There will also be beach cleanup supplies available throughout the event for anyone wanting to help beautify the beach and make it a safer place for both people and marine life. Ms. George said it will be a great educational event for families, groups of friends, even businesses. "I t' s going to be like a beach party," Ms. George said.

"W e' re there to restore them." The first ever talent showcase is a precursor to R3's new performing arts center that will open at Thomas Power Park at the end of September. When the performing arts program launches on S ept. 30, students will have access to ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop classes and more, but for now, the kids involved in the R3 program are excited to be showcasing their talents for all of Ma r tin County and beyond. Ms. Kikivarakis hopes that the event will show the community what talent can be found in I ndiantown and that an auditorium filled with people will show the kids that somebody cares. "I believe this is going to give them some hope," Ms. K ikivarakis said. "We're creating a dream." The event is free, but R3 will be accepting donations so they can continue to transform lives and keep at r isk youth reaching toward a goal. The entire community is invited to attend the Night of Extravaganza at I ndiantown Middle School at 6 p.m. to show the students their support. Support that Ms. Kikivarakis believes is vital to the students' growth and success. "I t' s their time to shine," said Ms. Kikivarakis. "I think it's really going to spark a flame in them." son, owner of Epic-Sessions. "Every year we have around 7075 people that enter the contest and hundreds of onlookers. This y ear we have also added a pro division, which will be bring in professional skim boarders from all over the state." There will be four divisions in addition to the pro division. The divisions are divided by ability, not age. Pa r ticipants are judged on creativity, wave selection, tricks performed on the way to the wave, on the wave and on the way back from the wave. The top four contestants in each division will win a trophy and prize pack. All contestants will r eceive a T-shirt and complimentary lunch from M ulligans. Those who go to watch the event can participate in a raffle which will include prizes from local businesses, gift certificates, photogr aphy packages, surf, skim and paddleboard rentals and other goodies. This is really a great cause," Mr. Ellison said. "If we lose our lifeguards, the beaches won't be a safe attraction to tourists. If we start to lose tourists, the already struggling economy will suffer further. This is a great way to help keep the lifeguards on the beach and also help the children at St. J ude's."

Getting the incredible fire ant to stop chomping on you If you love to tend to your outdoor garden, you are more likely than not to be bitten by at least several fire ants on any given day. These pesky critters are w ell-known for their aggressive behavior and they will swarm over anybody or anything that that might disturb their nest. Fire ants have been known to attack small pets sometimes killing them. People can often be severely harmed by a massive stinging fest of hundreds of these nuisance ants, especially if you are allergic to their sting. The painful sting of a fire ant affects 40 percent of folks who live within the regions that fire ants reside. In addition, fire ants do not always stay outdoors. In many cases when food or water is scarce, they will wander to indoor locations in search of food and water. At first glance, you might think that you are looking at an ordinary ant until they decide to sting you. Fire ants have a dark, reddish brown head and a much darker abdomen region. Their mounds can sometimes be huge and once disturbed, they become very aggressive. S ome mounds can be as high as 15inches and go down in the ground as much as fivefeet. These incredible creatures actually use signals to communicate. When a fire ant decides to sting you, they always all sting at the same time. This is because one ant gives a command to all the others to attack. This is why they can be so dangerous. If y ou have small pets or children, it is important to keep them under control. The fire ants in our area we re actually brought here by accident. They were brought to the United States in 1929 when a cargo ship docked in M obile, Ala. Since they have few enemies, they propagated freely and can be found in many southern states as well as in California and Kansas. They cannot survive freezing temperatures. In order to eradicate fire ants, the queen must be killed or else the critters will just move from place to place. There are both commercial products that work to kill fire ants as well as a couple of natural remedies y ou might want to try. Amdro is probably one of the most popular and effective methods to get rid of the ants, especially if you have a huge infestation. The product works by initially attracting the ants to the pellets where they carry it eventually to the queen. Once the queen is destroyed, the rest of the mound will die. The product works because it does not kill the ant instantly. It allows enough time to distribute the pellets throughout the colony before the killing process begins. Once you have the worst of the mounds under control, y ou can use more environmentally friendly methods to help keep them away. Since we are always trying to do things naturally when possible, try placing bags of sulfur in areas where the fire ants often make mounds. The ants hate sulfur and will tend to stay away from the treated areas. Be careful around children and pets. A natural way to kill the surface ants is to mix some vinegar with boiling hot water and pour it directly ov er the ant mound. The mixture will kill most surface ants, but if the queen survives, the mound will again rise from the dust. I have tried this method on some smaller infestations with some success. CAUTION: I do not recommend this method if it is in the middle of your lawn as the vinegar can kill the grass as w ell as the ants. In a previous article we talked about how w ell vinegar can act a natural w eed killer. I sometimes get concerns from readers about using chemicals to combat pest problems. Although we often try to make suggestions on natural ways to do things, there are times when chemical methods are the only thing that will work. I do r ecommend trying the natural methods first to see if they work for you and use the chemical methods as a last r esort. Whenever you can substitute a natural way to get rid of garden pests, you are helping to save the environment. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

BREVARD The Cocoa B each Pier will be teeming with excitement this Labor Da y, as the National Kidney F oundation hosts the 28th NKF Rich Salick Pro-Am Surfing Festival Monday, Aug. 26 through Monday, Sept. 2. The surf fest, founded by twin brothers Rich and Phil S alick, was started as a way to r aise funds to fight kidney disease and help dialysis patients. The brothers shared a love of the ocean and were professional surfers. Rich Salick was 23 years old when he was diagnosed with IGA Nephropathy/Glomerulonephritis, a disease that breaks down the filtering units in the kidneys. He immediately began dialysis, which Mr. Salick received eight hours a day, three days a w eek. In S eptember 1974, Phil Salick happily donated one of his kidneys to his twin. While the transplant was successful, Mr. Salick was told that surfing again would be too dangerous. W ith a lot of luck and an amazing support system, Mr. S alick was soon back in his beloved ocean, surfing in competitions and spending his last years on earth doing what he loved. A tragic event for his family, friends and the surfing community, Rich Salick died on J uly 2, 2012, while undergoing emergency surgery. The 27th annual event was renamed in Rich's honor. The NKF was created as a fundraiser for other kidney patients, who have been struck with the disease," said Sa v anna Pitard, special events coordinator for the NKF of F lorida. "Phil and Rich personally delivered the money they raised to those in need in a brown paper bag." Pr ofits raised from the surf Pr o-Am will be donated to help the fight against kidney disease. The number of people, who attend the NKF surf fest, va ry each year based on w eather and swell conditions, but averages at more than 50,000 people," Ms. Pitard said. "We typically have over 500 surfers competing." Pr ofessional and amateur surfers will hit the waves on S aturday, Aug. 31. Competitions include the Ron Jon Me n' s Pro, the Alison Moses W omen's Pro, Anarchy Eyew ear Junior Men's Pro, Steve C asanova Men and Women's Pr o Longboard. There will also be a tandem surf competition, as well as a family-friendly swimsuit competition. "W e have had several big names in surfing come out to the event in the past, including Kelly Slater, the Hobgood and Lopez brothers and many more," Ms. Pitard added. "But this is determined on the wave conditions for the weekend, as well as if these guys are out on tour." In addition to a wide range of events, the Taste of Brevard and a silent auction will be held on Sunday, Sept. 1 at the H ilton in Cocoa Beach. This year, we will be rolling out a scholarship fund, where applicants can apply and will be selected by a board of repr esentatives that have been part of the event and close with Rich," Ms. Pitard said. "A pplicants will be chosen based on several different criteria, including grade point average, community service and character." "P eople should attend the NKF Rich Salick Pro-Am Surf F est to watch world class surfing, enjoy a beautiful day on the beach, listen to daily, live music, enter to win raffles and giveaways, get a free lesson from Ron Jon School of Surf, watch and participate in tandem surf demos and to support the NKF," Ms. Pitard said.

MARTIN COUNTY Whether starting a new business or growing an existing one, Martin C ounty entrepreneurs have a new resource in I ndian River State Colleges business incubator. While IRSC has operated a version of the incubator for several years now at Stuart Square, they are adopting a new model and moving the service to the IRSC Stuart campus to serve small businesses better and help keep Martin County a great place to live and work. W e want to be the place where Martin C ounty comes for business services, said Elizabeth Gaskin, Provost of the IRSC Chastain campus in Stuart. Where before the program was more about leasing office space, its now about serving business by offering workshops, individual mentoring, and shared workspace. The on-campus incubator will offer a more dynamic environment while utilizing access to faculty, students and more extensive business services. The incubator can help those with a brilliant idea form a business plan so they can hit the ground running as well as those with an established business realize their full potential. The S mall Business Development Center will be on hand with free business consulting, too. B usiness Incubator memberships start at $25 per month and include services like business planning and help with how to get a new business started successfully. TREASURE COAST M any residents were alarmed last week after three cases of mosquitotransmitted dengue fever we re reported, but according to Gene Lemire of Mosquito Control there is no cause for alarm. Last week the health department alerted Martin C ounty Mosquito Control to the cases and they immediately took action, sweeping the area surr ounding the initial incident with mosquito foggers and inspecting yards for breeding grounds. T eams canvassed a five to six block area, knocking on doors and treating areas where they found evidence of the species of mosquito that spread the illness that causes flu-like symptoms. D engue fever is spread when a mosquito bites an infected individual and then proceeds to bite others. The three infected MARTIN COUNTY Martin C ounty Sheriff William Snyder has a zero tolerance policy for bullying. A policy that led to the announcement of a new No Bully Z one initiative. The initiative was announced just in time for the start of a new school year and was inspired by all of the violent events that have r eceived national recognition in the past few months. S heriff Snyder wants nothing more than to make school a safe place for children so he created a way for the Sheriffs Office, superintendent and schools in the district to work together to stop the harmful effects of bullying. W e want to create a climate where bullying is not tolerated, said Sheriff Snyder. A ccording to the sheriff, bullying is all about an imbalance of power, the strong tormenting the w eak, but, I plan to bring the balance back into the relationship, Sheriff Snyder said. He wants students to know they are not alone, to see him and his officers as big brothers in green uniforms who will always stand behind them. B ut he knows that students arent always likely to step into an office to submit a report. W e really needed a way for a y oung person to r each out to us without drawing attention to themselves, Sheriff Snyder said. Now all a bullying victim has to do is submit a report online from their computer or phone in the priv acy of their bedroom or car.

M en of all ages, many of whom will be sporting bright red stilettos, will come together at three locations on Saturdays in O ctober in an effort to show their opposition to domestic violence and their support of the work S afe Space does. B ecause real men step up. W omen and children are invited, too, of course, but its the brawny males dedicated to walking a mile in four-inch heels that really r aises awareness for victims of domestic violence. J ill Borowicz, CEO of S afe Space, knows that in the battle against domestic violence, women cant stand alone. W e want men in this fight with us, Mrs. Boro wicz said. We want them to walk hand-inhand with us in this. Mrs. Borowicz knows its a difficult topic to discuss, but the event helps raise awareness and funds for S afe Spaces many protective and empowering services in a fun and lighthearted way. F amilies walk together, r ed footwear abounds, signs are raised in support and awards are even given to the largest team at each event, the most spirited walker, and the walker who raised the most money. I t s a really fun way of getting out a very serious message, Mrs. Borowicz said. It also helps raise awareness for Safe Space and their services, including education programs, support groups, court advocacy and emergency shelters for women exper iencing domestic violence. Last year 350 men alone came out and slipped into a pair of heels and about $40,000 was raised at all three walk locations.

The type of mosquito is a non-roaming var iety, according to Mr. Lemire, and while his team treated more than150 homes in the area that were unknowingly breeding mosquitoes, he believes the problem has been resolved. Mr. Lemire said residents shouldnt be ov erly concerned with contracting a mosquito-transmitted illness like dengue. I t s a rare occurrence, Mr. Lemire said. It has only occurred twice in Martin County and has never turned into an epidemic. B ut as public safety is one of Mosquito C ontrols goals, there are a few things they recommend people do to limit their exposure to the pests. When outside, use mosquito repellent and wear long sleeves and pants. In your yard, flush out breeding colonies by turning over empty containers like buckets, tires and dog bowls that can collect water and encourage egg laying. Mr. Lemire also recommends cleaning out birdbaths on a weekly basis and r emoving any unused vessels that hold water. Mo squito Control will continue to perform periodic checks and maintain their mosquito fogging routes five nights a w eek, but Mr. Lemire said residents can r elax knowing there is really no cause for concern.

W ater farming pilot project gets nod TREASURE COAST As part of the broad effort to restore and protect the St. L ucie River and Estuary, the South Florida Water Management District approved a water farming pilot project to store excess water on fallow citrus land before it can flow to the estuary. W orking with local landowners to identify property for water storage is an integral part of our strategy to address high flows into the estuaries, said D aniel OKeefe, SFWMD Governing board chairman. This pilot project on citrus land highlights the Districts expanded efforts to implement nearterm solutions that make a difference. U nder the pilot program, Caulkins Citr us Company will pump water onto 450 acres of its property located along the St. L ucie Canal in Martin County. This can capture an average of 6,780 acre-feet of water a year that would otherwise flow along the canal from Lake Okeechobee and surrounding basins into the St. L ucie River and Estuary. The three-year pilot project will provide vital information on the proposed concept of retaining storm water on citr us properties. W ith Lake Okeechobee still rising from above-average rainfall, the private landowner on this project is already pumping water onto the property on an emergency basis under an agreement with the District. To date, approximately 200 acre-feet of water have been diverted from the watershed that drains to the S t. Lucie Estuary. The District issued a request for water farming pilot project proposals in April in close coordination with several partner agencies including: Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Florida Department of Environmental Protection U.S. Department of Agriculture, Natural Resources Conservation Service Fi ve proposals were evaluated and r anked. Caulkins Citrus Company, the first ranked respondent, came to an agreement with the District, which will invest approximately $1.2 million in the project, or about $76 per acre-foot per y ear of storage. M anaging water on these lands, known as the Dispersed Water Management Program, is one tool to reduce the amount of water flowing during the wet season into the lake and discharged to coastal estuaries for flood protection. Pr ivate ranchlands in this program curr ently provide a storage volume of more than 60,000 acre-feet. S hallow water retention also provides groundwater recharge for water supply, potential for water quality improvements and rehydration of drained ecosystems. The program encourages property o wners to retain water on their land r ather than drain it, accept and detain r egional runoff or do both.

Contact him at www.earlstewarttoyota.com, call (561) 358-1474,fax (561) 658-0746 or email earl@estoyota.com. For many years, Ive worn two hats, one as a Toyota dealer and the other as an advocate for car buyers and owners of all brands. I take stringent measures to separate the two. As a consumer advocate for all car o wners, I know that about 8.5 out of 10 of all cars on the r oad are not Toyotas. C oming across as a Toyota dealer would appear to be self-serving and would cause me to lose all credibility and objectivity to the vast majority of car owners. Likewise, it wouldnt be unseemly for me, wearing my Toy ota dealer hat, to remind my prospective customers that the Chevrolet Impala was rated higher than the Toy ota Camry by Consumer R eports. In my role as consumer advocate, Ive written a book, C onfessions of a Recovering C ar Dealer, write a blog, www.EarlStewartOnCars.co m Twitter, @earloncars.com, www.YouTube.com/EarlOnC ars and a column for the H ometown News I host with my wife, Nancy, a weekly r adio show on WSVU, Earl S tewart on Cars. It s a live call-in talk show that attracts one of the largest audiences in that time slot and car owners of all makes call me for advice and with their comments. I speak publically all over South F lorida at Chambers of C ommerce, Rotary and K iwanis Clubs, churches and synagogues, condo associations, public libraries and any other organization that asks me to speak. Im proud to say that Ive been invited d to speak at the annual installation banquet meeting of the famous 82nd Airborne Division this Dec. 8. Ive been interviewed and quoted often by the national media including CNN, Fox, ABC, NBC, CBS, the Wall Str eet Journal, USA Today, NY T imes, Automotive News, US N ews and World Report, For tune Forbes, and the Associated Press. Ive lobbied for better laws and enforcement of existing laws with Florida politicians including testifying before the Florida Senate Commerce Committee in an effort to outlaw the dealer fee. I also work with the Florida A utomobile Dealers Association, FADA, in efforts to create an enforceable code of ethics that can improve the sales practices, advertising and the image of Florida car dealers. As a consumer advocate, to be totally objective, I cannot exclude Toyota dealers, the Toy ota distributor (Southeast Toy ota), or Toyota Motor S ales/Toyota Motor Corp. from criticism. How would it look for me to point out problems with only Honda, GM, Ford, Chrysler, and other non-Toyota dealers and manufacturers? When a Toy ota dealer runs an illegal or unethical ad, its my duty to point this out to him and the public, just like I would a H onda or Ford dealer. As you might surmise, I get a lot of heat from many car dealers. Many accuse of me of being the reason they have such a bad image.

Most of the time, when I get calls for computer help I can usually figure out how to fix things out instinctively. Why? W ell because I examine the contents of the different menus looking for the option that will most likely get me closer to my goal (while keeping in mind whatever it is Im trying to do). As an added bonus, just about every program out there that has pull down menus have Help listed as the last one to the right. So, by the time I get to the last pull down menu I can always open that programs help file and do a search on what Im trying to do. The help file will then list all the topics that contain whatever words I searched on and from there I can usually figure out how to take the next step. Lets take a look at this in an example. Lets say Im writing my column with a typical word processing program and I wanted to make the next line that I type bold and larger. Lets also say that I only have a very basic understanding of computers. At this point I have two choices, I can stare at the screen with a blank expression and then call Bob (whos pretty good with computers) and ask him or, I can start looking around the screen for something that may help me reach my goal. As I move my mouse (and my eyes!) around the screen I notice a couple of things; first at the top of the screen, above where the words are being typed, there are (usually) rows pull down menus and buttons available. And, as I move my mouse slowly over the buttons, little boxes pop up telling me what each button does. When I click on the File option it opens (or pulls down) and I can see all of the commands that are available that have to do with F iling. As I move my mouse to the right, the File pull down menu closes and the Edit menu opens displaying all of the commands available for editing. N ext the View pull down menu opens and then the I nsert menu opens. As each menu opens I look at all the options available and for each one I ask myself, Does this option look like it will help me change my text to bold and larger? And as each menu does not present an option I go on to the next one eventually getting to the F ormat pull down menu. When Format opens, I see it lists Bullets and numbering Borders and shading and whats this? Font?? Hmmm. Let me think Im trying to change the formatting of my text and text is made up of fonts, Thinking I may be on the r ight track, I click the Fonts option and a screen opens that allows me to change the characteristics of the type. B ingo! Exactly what I am looking for! It says I am typing in Times New Roman, R egular, Size 12. I change the specs to Times New Roman, B old, Size 14, click OK and voila! My typing is now larger and darker. O k, so, that rather tame demonstration is just an example of how intuitive computing works; at no time did I ever get the urge to go get a book or call tech support for help, I kept in mind what I was trying to do and, after seeing what options were available, discovered the answer on my o wn. Instinctively. Now, I know what a lot of y ou are thinking; that the things you have trouble doing are far more complex than just changing the characteristics of text, how can this possibly help me? And to that I answer the lesson is not in how to change the font size, the lesson is where to go for y our answers! N otice that the pull down menus I looked at were all within the program I was using. You should look at the menus and options available within the program where y ou are stuck. Also notice that each pull down menu is a category; all filing options are under File and we found our Font options under the F ormat pull down menu. That was no coincidence. I would have been very surprised to find the Fonts option under the File pull down menu but starting at F ile and moving to the right covers all the bases and r apidly gets you familiar with all the menus available.

Dear Welfare RanterI am not the one who labeled you that but it suits you. You have not done your research. Many people are on welfare because the government put them there. Yes! It's the government's fault. Take this: Our court system. Family law judges are protecting deadbeats and not the children even when there is solid evidence. I have taken my ex to court 12 times in six years. He ow es over $110,000. I usually win but he only has to pay anywhere between $3,000$0. It is cheaper to purge than to pay child support. The last time I took him to court I had a detective and his sworn investigation which revealed a business and thousands in income. I also produced 30 copies of checks written out to the deadbeat with his endorsement on the back. G uess what the judge said? "Not enough!" Did you know (no, y ou didn't do your research) that in 2010 in just the state of Florida alone, deadbeats owed over 6 trillion dollars...more than the r ichest man(Bill Gates) in the world! And that is just one state out of 50. Her e's another thing: the government has allowed hospitals, doctors, and insurance companies to price-gouge patients into debt and homelessness. One can of Dermaplast from the drugstore cost $8 yet on the hospital bill I was charged $50. And the hospitals will not allow you to bring in your own drugs-preventing you from being a good steward. And how about this: the government did not do their job in monitoring the banking and mortgage industry before we fell into a bad recession, (the government is more interested in listening to our phone calls apparently), and this too caused many to lose their jobs and homes and go on welfare. How about these big employers who are cutting the hours if full-timers to part time so they pay less out and drop benefits? And another...all those illegals taking up what few jobs left in this recession instead of employing Americans. Lets not forget about our dear president himself. He preached he would lower the national debt, but now it is doubled! He promised new jobs with the so-called stimulus money. D idn't work. He bailed out banks(with taxpayer money) who then turnaround and partied on that money and charged us outrageous new fees for stupid things...all of this hurts everyone who's trying to make ends meet and when we dont we need food stamps and Medicaid. It appears to me that you were not affected by the recession or anything of the above. Maybe you are rich and live a very sheltered life unaware of everything that is happening with our country, the president, and the people. Welfare ranter, I hope I opened your eyes but I doubt it. T eachers unions?This is in response to the reader who sent in the rant last week titled "What happened to teaching?" I have to question where that reader is from. They couldn't possibly reside in St. Lucie County and come to the conclusions they have drawn. In the opposite of that reader, I still think teaching is a revered profession and I have a high level of appreciation and respect for all the teachers I know. As far as attributing the demise to the teachers' unions with a powerful force... well, frankly that is just misinformation. Unions are not even allowed in Florida for teachers. What they have may be dubbed a "union" but in essence it is not much more than a bargaining unit with little if any power at all. And I say that with no disrespect to them. They do the best they can up against a powerful school board and an ov erbearing, overrated, overpaid, and overstaffed administration who in my opinion may say they always have the best interest of the student in mind but clearly don't. The comment to pay scale increases is at most laughable since the teachers I know, at least the ones in St. Lucie County, went the last five years without any pay increases and have even been asked to take pay cuts. The only part of the rant at all that I agree with is that the kids are getting lost in the shuffle. But the ones responsible for that are the administrators and politicians, not the teachers. Most teachers across the United States remain underpaid, and are r outinely thrown under the bus and used as scapegoats for our problems with education. Teachers are in the profession because they want to educate our children and are dedicated to help them to succeed in this world. Their desire to teach has not been diminished by the constant red tape; pay cuts, and badgering of administrators and politicians. They remain committed and will continue to fight for what is best for their students. My hat goes off to every teacher and they have my highest respect for the hard work they do under the guidelines they are expected to perform under and the unnecessary hoops they are made to jump through. For the record, I am not a teacher.A note to who violated our privacy If you were hungry and came to my door I would have given y ou food. Instead you chose to take sentimental items from deceased friends and items from our sons serving their country in Iraq and Afghanistan. We are in our 70s; if your parents we re violated would you not care? Do something better with y our lives. Exonerate yourselves and return items (make your parents proud). Remember, you can run but you can't hide. God sees all!Sunpass causes unemployment?If you buy and use "Sunpass" you are contributing to a toll collector losing their job and having to go on unemployment and maybe even on some other government assistance such as housing subsidies, food stamps, etc. The statement above is an absolute fact. It has already caused many collectors to lose their full time jobs.Do somethingWhen you sit and look at any local causeway or Hutchinson I sland at night, it is breathtaking the reflections of the lights on the water, hearing the sounds of fish jumping and birds diving but In the day time we have a different story that makes my heart bleed. Imagine being lucky enough to grow in Martin C ounty and having the opportunity to be able to water ski, fish, swim, paddle board, surf, etc To be able to sit on the ri ver and watch children play and watch people throw a stick in the water for their dogs to go fetch. After all thats what Martin County is all about, the quality of life, good clean fun and family activities, to help maintain that quality of life we have become accustomed to A wonderful area for tourism due to the wonderful beaches, parks on the water, restaurants on the water and the ability to be able to approach it all by water. Many families rely on clean water in Martin County, due to owning any business that sells or rents anything from sailboats and paddle boards to fishing tackle, bait and surf boards or a restaurant on the water. An area where it would not be Sunday if there were not a thousand boats hanging out on the Sandbar, swimming, grilling and just hanging out with friends and family. It is like taking a mini vacation in your own back yard. Lets not forget Labor D ay the last weekend before the chaotic holidays begin fun in the sun and water everywhere. The draining of Lake Okeechobee will mean total devastation for the entire Treasure C oast. Local business owners will cease to exist therefore their homes will go into foreclosure, causing a trickledown effect. Cr eating many abandoned establishments. T ourism will cease to exist. Why would you go somewhere in Florida that you could not rent or buy any gear necessary for water sports and not be able to swim or even enter the water ways. What will become of this beautiful community full of great people? Please we all need to do what we can to help, for the future of our children and of our community? Regarding Kaitlyn HuntI just read an article regarding Kaitlyn Hunt. Heres something Id like to know Why didnt the 14 year olds mother get involved before she waited for the other turned 18? Why did she wait? Sounds like she just wanted to be vindictive and now the government wants blood out of this. Now, I looked up young teenage pregnancy and was startled by the age; anywhere from 14 16 yrs. old and when these young women get pregnant, where are these parents and the government? Most of them r un off to the welfare office and start that domino effect rolling. Now, why isnt the paper filled with the guys and women who are involved in this sexual misconduct in the paper? Thats wrong too but the government doesnt say anything about that, other than cutting a check to the young mother to help support her and however many kids she has. Just so they can keep their political careers going at the expense of the tax payer. Oh, by the way those kids having kids, the funds to help pay for them come right out of the honest tax payers pocket. And lets not forget about any family foundation as well which leads to crime. Everything in life has consequences. Editors note: A ccording to the original arrest affadavit,it states that Kaitlyn Hunt started dating the victim November 2012.Her 18th birthday was in August 2012.About immigrationDo folks realize that this country lets in more than one million people a year through legal immigration, and that there are about four million people in line waiting their turn to get in? That doesn't sound like a broken immigration system to me, but rather like one that is quite robust. Got something to say?

consumer advocate, you might be surprised to know that Toyota doesnt like it either. Toyota created a contractual document several years ago entitled the Toy ota Dealer Ad Covenant, TDAC. The primary motivation for this document which all Toyota dealers must sign and agree to was to keep dealer advertising on the up and up. But theres also language in the TDAC which prevents one Toyota dealer from being critical of another. It makes no difference whether the criticism is true and factual or not. The r ationale behind this rule is that Toyota does not want its dealers to damage Toyotas brand. This is what I have a problem understanding. The Toy ota brand is based on the quality of the cars they build and the positive perception of the Toyota manufacturer as a company that shows care, concern, empathy and integrity toward their own employees and their car o wners. The Toyota brand r anking has always been very high. It slumped slightly after the sudden acceleration r ecall, but has currently risen back to #1 among all auto manufacturers. The public sees the Toyota brand as separate and apart from the dealer brand. The brand of John Smith Toyota, the dealer, is based on how he treats his customers, how he advertises, and how ethical and honestly he sells and services Toyotas. Unfortunately, Toyota dealers brand image has been ranked consistently below average by JD Powerss surveys of all other makes for many years, while Toyota, the manufacturers brand has always been very high. When a Toyota dealer damages his dealership brand, Toyota buyers give their business to the dealers with the better r eputation. This is the way the free market place is supposed to operate and is what competition is all about. By keeping quiet about problems that Toyota dealers have, one prolongs the process of correction. In their advertising, all competing r etailers compare their strong points to their completion. It s survival of the fittest in the marketplace. There is very little, if any, correlation between Toyotas brand and Toy ota dealers brand; If there we re, how could Toyotas brand remain the highest and Toy ota dealers brand remain near the lowest for so many y ears? Toy ota dealers compete against each other to a greater extent than they compete against other makes. Car buyers usually make up their mind which make they want to buy before they select their dealer. Their next step is to choose the dealer that they can most trust to give them a good price and treat them with courtesy, respect and integrity. For all Toyota dealers to be contractually forbidden to speak even the truth in criticism of another Toy ota dealer seems almost like a restraint of trade. The car consumer should be entitled to all of the facts about the advertising and sales practices of those r etailers that they buy from. Toy ota dealers know more about this subject than anybody else. A Toyota dealer can tell you that the Honda dealer is using bait and switch advertising but he cant say that about his Toyota competitor. But, with that said, I signed the TDAC and I will honor my commitment. U nfortunately, theres been some conversation recently about gagging the other Earl S tewart, Earl Stewart, the consumer advocate.

In 2010 he saw an opportunity to jump into business for himself and took it. Pettit F amily Auto Transport was born. The company that offers transportation of everything from cars and trucks to boats and mobile homes also prides itself on high standards and great customer service. Thats r eally what sets us apart from other auto transport services, Mr. Pettit said. He doesnt charge a deposit until vehicles are safely loaded for transport and refuses to use many carriers because they dont meet Pettit Family A uto Transports standards of quality. He and his wife, Carla Pettit, who run the business together, ensure that every job is done right, for the best price, and in a timely manner. Mr. Pettit says it all comes down to family values, the r oot of his solid business ethics and white glove service. Those values are how he plans to succeed and share the business with his two daughters, now 2 and 6. P ettit Family auto specializes in classic car and dealership fleet transport but are a v aluable recourse for seasonal residents, vacationers, and those re-locating for jobs who want to save driving time, mileage, and wear and tear on their vehicle but need a mode of transportation once they reach their intended destination. B ut were a lot more than just cars, Mr. Pettit said. The business also offers the transportation of large equipment, four-wheelers and the like all across the nation and the world. At the end of the day, its about more than making a buck for Mr. Pettit and his family. Its about delivering precious cargo in perfect condition and doing it better and with higher standards than anyone else in the business. M y biggest satisfaction is making the customer happy, Mr. Pettit said. P ettit Family Auto Transport, LLC can be found in the Cr exent Center at 850 N.W. F ederal Highway in Stuart.

TREASURE COAST F lorida Fish and Wildlife C onservation Commission and National Oceanic and A tmospheric Administration researchers are asking anglers to help them gather information about the important Atlantic red snapper fishery. The recreational red snapper season is open Aug. 23 through A ug. 25 (a Friday through S unday) in south Atlantic federal waters. FWC researchers and volunteers will be out along Floridas east coast during each day of the season, asking recreational fishers about their red snapper trips and their catch. Researchers will also collect biological samples of harvested fish, which will not affect the fillet, to help determine the age of each red snapper. B iologists sampled more than 2,000 red snapper during the federal opening in 2012 as a result of these efforts. Anglers survey responses and biological samples will give researchers valuable data about the red snapper fishery. Fisheries scientists could use this information in future population assessments. While the federal opening will have no size limit and a bag limit of one fish per person per day, in F lorida state waters there is a 20-inch total length minimum size limit, in addition to a bag limit of two fish per person, per day. Vessels with red snapper smaller than the states minimum size limit must travel through state waters without stopping and have fishing gear stowed. When anglers catch a tagged red snapper, FWC r esearchers ask that they r eport it to the Angler Tag R eturn Hotline at (800) 367-4461. When calling the hotline, anglers should indicate the species, tag number, date and time of capture, catch location, fish length, type of bait used and whether the fish was kept or released. If the fish is released, the angler is asked to leave the tag in place to help with future data collection. Fo r more information about red snapper sampling efforts, visit M yFWC.com/Research. F or information on red snapper regulations, visit M yFWC.com/Fishing, and click on Recreational Regulations under Saltwater and then select A tlantic Snappers. Florida east coast anglers asked to collect red snapper dataF or Hometown News NewsFP@hometownnewsol.com Dont be lazy in the heat of summer, just go catch some fish August means the lazy days of summer and I seem to fit right in. S ummer temperatures make me want to sit, sleep and do as little as possible I may even use live bait. I know, hurry up, and lets go catch a fish. S ummers bright sun and high water temperature mean you have to fish early in the day. If youre looking for trout, its best to be in the water before sun up, because once that sun comes out the fish (as I) will be looking for a comfort zone. B ite time is very narrow; from dark to that 7 a.m. That is when the fish are looking to eat and you need to be there. T arpon and snook, with a mix of jacks, will be at the bridges, power plant, and in the surf just about anywhere there is bait. Low light is the key. Im not going to say they will not be there midafternoon, but Im lazy and need to be in my comfort zone. There are good catches of trout, with a few reds in the mix, but only if the blue fish dont cut you off from the north side of Nettles island to Bear Point. Fish top water and fish early. The bridges have snapper, black drum and a few trout eating shrimp. Fish the shaded and deeper water. As crazy as it sounds, I saw some pompano from the bridge at the east end of the causeway and blues in the flats. Su rf has been hot, hot or nothing. If youre looking for tarpon, look for the bait schools; the birds will give their location. At the moment, most of the action has been south of the Fort Pierce area, but it will change as quickly as it starts. Their eating habits keep them on the move. Look at what they are eating and match the profile. The jacks dont care if it moves they want a bite. F ish the outer edges of the bait schools. That is where they are feeding and small baits are preferred. Rapala X-rap, MirroLure or a DOA B air buster to name a few will get the attention you are looking for. There are plenty of whiting to take home for dinner, so dont forget the ice. Offshore, theres a good catch list this week with wahoo, kings, cobia and ye s, the bonita are still with us. W ahoo were from 80-foot out on deep baits. Finally, anglers are taking baits deep and finding some real nice fish, most in the 30pound class. These fish we re north and south of the inlet. So why am I not out there? Im still lazy. Theres a good bite of king fish. Again, the down baits are working, but there we re a few dolphin and sails to get some attention, but a wahoo will start your heart.

JEN5OFF Out & about INDIANTOWN On A ug. 27, R3, an outreach and rehabilitation ministry, will be producing a talent showcase full of dancing, singing, reciting, even an African tribal show, all in the hope of inspiring dreams. It will be a Night of E xtravaganza as elementary to high school students present their talents to the public, many for the very first time. R3 is a nonprofit organization that aims to r estore, revitalize and r ebirth at-risk teens and those who have spent time in the juvenile justice system by mentoring, instilling values and leading them in a positive direction. R3 also runs two residential facilities, one for boys and one for girls. Theres so much that we do, said administrator Leann Kikivarakis. Gators, snakes, more, in expo INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Long graying beards are appearing on the faces of many people in Indian River County in anticipation of a famous bearded guest at the Florida Outdoors Expo later this month. J ohn Godwin, cast member of the hit A&E reality television series Duck D ynasty will be the featured guest at this years event and will pose for photos and sign autographs, said Lieutenant Dave Dangerfield, event coordinator and Indian River County firefighter and emergency medical technician. The Florida Outdoors E xpo is scheduled to be held at the Indian River C ounty fairgrounds on Aug. 24 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and A ug. 25 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. A dmission is $7 for guests 12 and older. Children y ounger than 12 are free with a responsible supervising adult, a press release said. A portion of the proceeds benefits the Indian River C ounty Firefighters Benevolent Association, which distributes funds to local charities, Lt. Dangerfield said. Close to 200 vendors are expected at the event with a var iety of outdoor and sports products for sale and display. N ew this year to the expo will be a gator wrestling demonstration and animal education program by G atorland, Lt. Dangerfield said. Last year, the featured celebrity was Paul Bedard of the Animal Planet television show Gator Boys, and even though the weather was full of rain, wind and storm clouds, people still drove out to event to meet him, Lt. Dangerfield said. The Gatorland demonstrations will give visitors the chance to see what gator wrestling is truly like, he said.

Awareness of how human actions can impact sea turtles well-being, that is. F lorida Oceanographic S ociety is hosting the first ever family-friendly, turtlefriendly event to encourage the community to come together and have fun learning about the effects that something as innocent as a day at the beach can have on sea turtle nesting and hatching. Ellie Van Os, FOS director of education and exhibits, said that many beachgoers, even locals who have frequented these beaches for ye ars, dont know that the holes their children dig and castles they build can be detrimental to turtles. S and structures can become an obstruction to turtles coming to the beach to lay their eggs and holes can be disastrous to tiny hatchlings attempting to make it to the ocean. The solution, according to Ms. Van Os is to leave no trace. H ave fun at the beach, use it all day long, but r emember that turtles are using it all night long and we need to leave it better than we found it, Ms. Van Os said. S he wanted to create a way to get that message out while still having a great time at the beach and the sand-sculpting contest was born. W e re doing it to show that we can have fun but we can also leave no trace, Ms. V an Os said. T eams of up to six can r egister to participate on S aturday where they will have three hours and a 20x20 foot space to construct something magical out of sand. The possibilities are endless, but creativity is key because the judges will award prizes for the best marine animal, most creative, and the sculpture with the best turtle conserv ation theme. Let your imagination r un wild, said Carla George from FOS.By Alisha McDarrisF or Hometown News See TURTLE, B2By Alisha McDarrisF or Hometown NewsINDIAN RIVER COUNTY When visiting the beach, there is comfort knowing that if the waves get too strong or the undertow takes over, a lifeguard is nearby, watching carefully, and waiting to help. U nfortunately, due to an already stressed budget, there was a threat that lifeguards across the beaches would decrease leaving ocean-lovers alone on the sandy shore. One group has decided that the risk of not having trained lifeguards on the beaches far outweighs the benefits, and is doing their part to help costs associated with maintaining their presence. E pic-Sessions Surf, S kim and Paddle school has teamed up with Mulligans in Vero Beach to present the sixth annual S kim Jam. The event will take place on Aug. 31 on the beach in front of Mulligans from 9 a.m. 4 p.m. In y ears past, the event has raised money for St. J udes Childrens Hospital. Howev er this year, Vero B each Lifeguard Association, a group started to keep local lifeguards on the beaches, will be the main beneficiary, with St. J udes receiving 10 percent of the proceeds.

W e re there to restore them. The first ever talent showcase is a precursor to R3s new performing arts center that will open at Thomas Power Park at the end of September. When the performing arts program launches on S ept. 30, students will have access to ballet, jazz, tap, hip hop classes and more, but for now, the kids involved in the R3 program are excited to be showcasing their talents for all of Mar tin County and beyond. Ms. Kikivarakis hopes that the event will show the community what talent can be found in I ndiantown and that an auditorium filled with people will show the kids that somebody cares. I believe this is going to give them some hope, Ms. K ikivarakis said. Were creating a dream. The event is free, but R3 will be accepting donations so they can continue to transform lives and keep at r isk youth reaching toward a goal. The entire community is invited to attend the Night of Extravaganza at I ndiantown Middle School at 6 p.m. to show the students their support. Support that Ms. Kikivarakis believes is vital to the students growth and success. I t s their time to shine, said Ms. Kikivarakis. I think its really going to spark a flame in them. son, owner of Epic-Sessions. Every year we have around 7075 people that enter the contest and hundreds of onlookers. This y ear we have also added a pro division, which will be bring in professional skim boarders from all over the state. There will be four divisions in addition to the pro division. The divisions are divided by ability, not age. Par ticipants are judged on creativity, wave selection, tricks performed on the way to the wave, on the wave and on the way back from the wave. The top four contestants in each division will win a trophy and prize pack. All contestants will r eceive a T-shirt and complimentary lunch from M ulligans. Those who go to watch the event can participate in a raffle which will include prizes from local businesses, gift certificates, photogr aphy packages, surf, skim and paddleboard rentals and other goodies. This is really a great cause, Mr. Ellison said. If we lose our lifeguards, the beaches wont be a safe attraction to tourists. If we start to lose tourists, the already struggling economy will suffer further. This is a great way to help keep the lifeguards on the beach and also help the children at St. J udes.

Getting the incredible fire ant to stop chomping on you If you love to tend to your outdoor garden, you are more likely than not to be bitten by at least several fire ants on any given day. These pesky critters are w ell-known for their aggressive behavior and they will swarm over anybody or anything that that might disturb their nest. Fire ants have been known to attack small pets sometimes killing them. People can often be severely harmed by a massive stinging fest of hundreds of these nuisance ants, especially if you are allergic to their sting. The painful sting of a fire ant affects 40 percent of folks who live within the regions that fire ants reside. In addition, fire ants do not always stay outdoors. In many cases when food or water is scarce, they will wander to indoor locations in search of food and water. At first glance, you might think that you are looking at an ordinary ant until they decide to sting you. Fire ants have a dark, reddish brown head and a much darker abdomen region. Their mounds can sometimes be huge and once disturbed, they become very aggressive. S ome mounds can be as high as 15inches and go down in the ground as much as fivefeet. These incredible creatures actually use signals to communicate. When a fire ant decides to sting you, they always all sting at the same time. This is because one ant gives a command to all the others to attack. This is why they can be so dangerous. If y ou have small pets or children, it is important to keep them under control. The fire ants in our area we re actually brought here by accident. They were brought to the United States in 1929 when a cargo ship docked in M obile, Ala. Since they have few enemies, they propagated freely and can be found in many southern states as well as in California and Kansas. They cannot survive freezing temperatures. In order to eradicate fire ants, the queen must be killed or else the critters will just move from place to place. There are both commercial products that work to kill fire ants as well as a couple of natural remedies y ou might want to try. Amdro is probably one of the most popular and effective methods to get rid of the ants, especially if you have a huge infestation. The product works by initially attracting the ants to the pellets where they carry it eventually to the queen. Once the queen is destroyed, the rest of the mound will die. The product works because it does not kill the ant instantly. It allows enough time to distribute the pellets throughout the colony before the killing process begins. Once you have the worst of the mounds under control, y ou can use more environmentally friendly methods to help keep them away. Since we are always trying to do things naturally when possible, try placing bags of sulfur in areas where the fire ants often make mounds. The ants hate sulfur and will tend to stay away from the treated areas. Be careful around children and pets. A natural way to kill the surface ants is to mix some vinegar with boiling hot water and pour it directly ov er the ant mound. The mixture will kill most surface ants, but if the queen survives, the mound will again rise from the dust. I have tried this method on some smaller infestations with some success. CAUTION: I do not recommend this method if it is in the middle of your lawn as the vinegar can kill the grass as w ell as the ants. In a previous article we talked about how w ell vinegar can act a natural w eed killer. I sometimes get concerns from readers about using chemicals to combat pest problems. Although we often try to make suggestions on natural ways to do things, there are times when chemical methods are the only thing that will work. I do r ecommend trying the natural methods first to see if they work for you and use the chemical methods as a last r esort. Whenever you can substitute a natural way to get rid of garden pests, you are helping to save the environment. J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

BREVARD The Cocoa B each Pier will be teeming with excitement this Labor Da y, as the National Kidney F oundation hosts the 28th NKF Rich Salick Pro-Am Surfing Festival Monday, Aug. 26 through Monday, Sept. 2. The surf fest, founded by twin brothers Rich and Phil S alick, was started as a way to r aise funds to fight kidney disease and help dialysis patients. The brothers shared a love of the ocean and were professional surfers. Rich Salick was 23 years old when he was diagnosed with IGA Nephropathy/Glomerulonephritis, a disease that breaks down the filtering units in the kidneys. He immediately began dialysis, which Mr. Salick received eight hours a day, three days a w eek. In S eptember 1974, Phil Salick happily donated one of his kidneys to his twin. While the transplant was successful, Mr. Salick was told that surfing again would be too dangerous. W ith a lot of luck and an amazing support system, Mr. S alick was soon back in his beloved ocean, surfing in competitions and spending his last years on earth doing what he loved. A tragic event for his family, friends and the surfing community, Rich Salick died on J uly 2, 2012, while undergoing emergency surgery. The 27th annual event was renamed in Richs honor. The NKF was created as a fundraiser for other kidney patients, who have been struck with the disease, said Sav anna Pitard, special events coordinator for the NKF of F lorida. Phil and Rich personally delivered the money they raised to those in need in a brown paper bag. Pr ofits raised from the surf Pr o-Am will be donated to help the fight against kidney disease. The number of people, who attend the NKF surf fest, va ry each year based on w eather and swell conditions, but averages at more than 50,000 people, Ms. Pitard said. We typically have over 500 surfers competing. Pr ofessional and amateur surfers will hit the waves on S aturday, Aug. 31. Competitions include the Ron Jon Me n s Pro, the Alison Moses W omens Pro, Anarchy Eyew ear Junior Mens Pro, Steve C asanova Men and Womens Pr o Longboard. There will also be a tandem surf competition, as well as a family-friendly swimsuit competition. W e have had several big names in surfing come out to the event in the past, including Kelly Slater, the Hobgood and Lopez brothers and many more, Ms. Pitard added. But this is determined on the wave conditions for the weekend, as well as if these guys are out on tour. In addition to a wide range of events, the Taste of Brevard and a silent auction will be held on Sunday, Sept. 1 at the H ilton in Cocoa Beach. This year, we will be rolling out a scholarship fund, where applicants can apply and will be selected by a board of repr esentatives that have been part of the event and close with Rich, Ms. Pitard said. A pplicants will be chosen based on several different criteria, including grade point average, community service and character. P eople should attend the NKF Rich Salick Pro-Am Surf F est to watch world class surfing, enjoy a beautiful day on the beach, listen to daily, live music, enter to win raffles and giveaways, get a free lesson from Ron Jon School of Surf, watch and participate in tandem surf demos and to support the NKF, Ms. Pitard said.
