Hearing moved up for Parkway Place

Despite protests from neighbors, Melbourne City Council sides with developer's attorney


BY GRETCHEN SAUERMAN
Staff writer
MELBOURNE Residents near
a planned affordable housing com-,
plex expressed frustration when the
City Council moved up a hearing
date to approve the project's site
plan.


"We'll remember this on election
day!" said one of the residents who
lives near project, echoing the sen-
timent of many of those in atten-
dance.
The proposed 216-unit Parkway
Place Apartments is located at the
southwest corner ofWickham Road
and Parkway Drive.


The conflict began last month
when nearly 200 residents packed
the council chambers for the Oct. 9
meeting to show their displeasure
for the planned project.
Following fierce questioning
from council member Joanne
Corby Oct. 9, the City Council
unanimously approved a plan to

Principal's challenge uncovers hidden talents

MELBOURNE -A challenge pre-
sented by Ascension Catholic
School principal Doug Workman
led one student to discover a
famous World War II fighter ace
right in her own backyard.
Emma Hueckel, a third-grader
from Suntree, was researching the
aviation challenge presented by her
principal, when her mother recog-
nized a photo Emma found on the
internet.
"My Mom said 'Isn't that Betsy's
husband?'" said Emma. After a few
phone calls, they learned that it


was.
It turned out that the ace pilot
she was researching, Maj. Gen.
Frederick Blesse, was also, a mem-
ber of her former parish, St. John
the Evangelist, in Melbourne.
Maj. Gen. Blesse distinguished
himself in WWII as the leading jet
ace in the U.S. Air Force. In 1955, he
won all six trophies offered for indi-
vidual pilot performance at the
World Wide Air Force Fighter
Weapons Meet, a featthat has not
been equaled, according to his
biography.

MELBOURNE A

iday tradition of selling
Christmas trees this
week.
Boy Scout Troop" 300's
"elves" will be on hand to
help holiday shoppers
pick out the perfect

The tree lot has moved

"The profits go into

said Mike Schexnayder,

"They can earn up to
$100 to $300."
Mr. Schexnayder has

to a fair hearing.
Council member Richard
Contreras, who lives in the


district near the planned
development, asked the
council to reconsider the


date-setting process.
"Do you concur that there
appears to be more work
ahead of you?" said Mr. Con-
treras to Richman Group
attorney Cliff Repperger.
After receiving an affirma-
tive answer, Mr. Contreras
suggested a Jan. 22 date for
the re-hearing, drawing
jeers from the audience.
Ms. Corby unsuccessfully
lobbied to set the hearing
date to April 22, with an
option for the developer to
move the date ahead if all
the conditions set by the city
and the neighbors have
been met.
Because the agenda item
was not a public hearing,
the council did not receive
official comments from the
public on the matter.
The council voted 5-1 to
move the date to Jan. 22,
with Ms. Corby dissenting.
Council member Cheryl
Palmer was absent.
Following the vote, more
than 100 residents stood to
leave the meeting, many
expressing dissatisfaction

Emma's parents were able
to track the general down

"Emma knew all about the
F-86 and had a lot of great

have created a Web site to
collect petition signatures
and inform the public of
the neighborhood's plight:

As of press time, more
than 30 residents had

Among the most popular

special brainstorming ses-

During the session, one res-

"It was pointed out that a
new senior center is being

While the developer's rep-

Officials tout new alert system

-West Melbourne residents can

Sm register to receive e-mail notices


Staff photo by Gretchen Sauerman
Karen Martin, West Melbourne computer operations
administrator, encourages residents to sign up for instant
e-mail alerts to stay current on the city's breaking news.


BY GRETCHEN SAUERMAN
Staff writer
WEST MELBOURNE -
City leaders want residents
to take advantage of an
automatic e-mail alert for
breaking news and impor-
tant information.
The system can relay
messages to residents when
a boil water alert is issued
or a special city council
meeting has been sched-
uled, said Karen Martin,
West Melbourne computer
operations administrator.
"We're making a concert-
ed effort to get information
to the residents," said Ms.
Martin. "This is one of the
ways to accomplish that."
Ms. Martin hopes that
residents and city staff can
learn from last month's
water main break and the
process of informing all the
residents of a boil water
notice.
After a 10-inch water
main near the intersection
of Wickham and Ellis roads
broke Oct. 25, city staff cre-
ated a phone tree to notify
hundreds of impacted resi-


dents.
A lot of time and money
could be saved, she said, if
residents take advantage of
the city's instant e-mail
messaging system.
There is no cost to register
for the instant alerts, she
said.
'"All you have to do is visit
the city's Web site
www. westmelbourne. org
and go to the "e-services"
(menu item) and click on
"notify me," she said.
The city allows users to
opt into different categories
of alerts, including meeting
agenda postings, boil water
notices, the city newsletter,
information from the per-
mit and regulation commit-
tee, reuse water notices and
schedules, road closures
and special city council
meetings. Users can chose
to receive notices on any or
all of the subjects, said Ms.
Martin.
Deputy mayor John
D'Amico encouraged offi-
cers of homeowners associ-
ations and local business

community as a 'new town,' a conno-
tation implying that the (Development
of Regional Impact) will be a mixed-
use community with an adequate
employment base and a variety of
housing types," he said.
"However, the DRI has not evolved
over the years into such a community
but has developed into a bedroom
community with its residents often
working outside of the area."
Mr. Schluckebier also cited lack of
affordable housing projects, saying the
shortage forces service sector employ-
ees to commute from adjacent cites to
work withinViera.
To be truly self-sufficient, the letter
points out, affordable housing should
be available for service sector employ-
ees, and professional employment
opportunities should exist for those
who live in Viera.
"If not, an already overburdened
transportation network will continue
to become even more congested," said
Mr. Schluckebier.
Among the projects high on Mel-
bourne's wish list is the extension of,


Washintonia Drive south to Eau Gallie
Boulevard to provide another north-
south corridor, said Melbourne plan-
ning and economic development
director Cynthia Dittmer.
"Viera is predominantly residential,"
said Ms. Dittmer. "A lot of (its) employ-
ees need to go to Melbourne or Rock-
ledge. We very much support the
(extension of) Washingtonia."
Local municipalities are encouraged
to weigh in on the impact of projects
like Viera's, said Ms. Busacca.
"By definition, a DRI impacts more
than just the area where the project is
being built," she said. "We take (the
adjacent communities') comments
very seriously."
The planned expansion of West Viera
will encompass 11,567 acres south and
west of the existing Viera project,
according to the proposed compre-
hensive plan amendment 2007C filed
byA. Duda & Sons.
The proposed change would add six
districts with different combinations
of residential, office, retail, light indus-
trial, and institutional uses. A 3,756-


acre conservation district is proposed
adjacent to the River Lakes Conserva-
tion Area.
Such an ambitious project will require
various state and local agencies to
weigh in, including the state Depart-
ment of Community Affairs, the Depart-
ment of Transportation and the Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection, said
Susan Howard, director of corporate
communications for Duda & Sons.
"The city of Melbourne is well within
its rights to offer input," said Ms.
Howard. "That's part of the process."
Mr. Schluckebier concluded that the
Washingtonia Drive extension should be
completed "prior to the construction of
(West Viera) activities to provide imme-
diate relief to 1-95 andWickham Road."
In addition to approving the letter, the
Melbourne City Council voted 5-1 to
add each council member's and the
mayor's signatures to the letter to rein-
force Mr. Schluckebier's position.

Best Buy armed robber captured

MELBOURNE An Orlando man was arrested shortly
after robbing a local electronics store.
Delvin Octavis Fulton, 24, of 967 Lacefurn Road,
Orlando, was charged Nov. 10 with armed robbery, grand
theft and false imprisonment.
Mr. Fulton entered the Best Buy, 1900 Evans Road, at
6:15 a.m., before the business opened, said Melbourne
Police Department Lt. Ken Bale.
Four employees were forced at gunpoint into an office
area while the store's manager opened the safe, said Lt.
Bale.
Mr. Fulton fled the scene with a large sum of money,
driving a rented pick-up truck, Lt. Bale said. West Mel-
bourne Police spotted the getaway vehicle traveling
southbound on Interstate 95 shortly thereafter.
Palm Bay Police apprehended Mr. Fulton without inci-
dent when he entered the Denny's restaurant, 840 Palm
Bay Road.
While there was no evidence that Mr. Fulton commit-
ted any other robberies, police found a stolen GPS pro-
grammed with the locations of other Best Buys in the
region, said Lt. Bale.
Mr. Fulton is being held without bond.

Kathy Meehan tapped as new vice mayor

MELBOURNE The City Council unanimously
approved the appointment of Kathy Meehan as the next
vice mayor.
She replaces Mark LaRusso, who has served as vice
mayor for the past year.
"Being vice mayor is a heck of a time," said Mr. LaRus-
so. "I sincerely hope that each of the council (members)
gets a chance to serve as vice mayor."
Ms. Meehan will be responsible for chairing council
meetings when Mayor Harry Goode is unavailable and
will also serve as a spokesperson at community gather-
ings when the mayor cannot attend.

TITUSVILLE State Rep. Bob Allen, R-
Merritt Island, resigned Nov. 16, one day
after he was sentenced to six months of pro-
bation and a $250 fine.
He was convicted Nov. 9 of agreeing to pay
a Titusville undercover police officer $20 for
a sex act.
Calls for Rep. Allen's resignation started
after his July 11 arrest and escalated after he
was convicted.
"Due to the requirements of my family
and private life, and in order to seek justice
in the upcoming appeals) process, I regret-
fully would like to inform you that I will
need to resign my elected position as the
legislator for House District 32 effective Feb.
15, 2008, or when the secretary of state can
certify a replacement through a general
election," Rep. Allen wrote in a letter deliv-
ered to House Speaker Marco Rubio.
Speaker Rubio had asked Rep. Allen to


resign after the guilty verdict was
announced.
Messages left at Speaker Rubio's office
were unanswered as of press time.
Florida Republican Party chairman Jim
Greer said after Rep. Allen's resignation was
released that he was "pleased that (Rep.
Allen) has taken this action."
He said voters would have an opportunity
to elect someone who can serve without the
distractions that will occupy Rep. Allen dur-
ing his appeals process.
Messages left at Rep. Allen's Merritt Island
and Tallahassee offices also went unan-
swered.
Greg Eisenmenger, Rep. Allen's attorney,
said he has cautioned his client not to talk
to anyone about his case and its repercus-
sions.
Election officials will have to scramble to
replace Rep. Allen before Feb. 15.
"We'll be ready whenever the secretary of

make some money to pay
for camp-outs, summer
camps and scouting sup-
plies."
In addition to the area's
freshest trees, the scouts
will also sell handmade
wreaths..
"Working the tree lot is a
wonderful, uplifting expe-
rience," said Eau Gallie
High School sophomore
Aaron Patterson, 15.
"The aroma of pine fills
the air and (we get) a break
from the scorching heat of'
the summer."
The young men take
their jobs seriously.
"It all starts as soon as
we set up," said Aaron. "As
a troop, we erect the


fences and the A-frame
tree stands."
"When the first cus-
tomers arrive to pick out 'a
tree, it signifies the start of
the Christmas season," he
said.
The Scouts will sell
fresh-cut Fraser Firs in
prices ranging from $20 to
more than $110, said Mr.
Schexnayder.
Viera High School stu-
dent Ethan Thomas, 15, is
looking forward to his sec-
ond year of selling trees.
"People should shop
here because they get a
personal Scout who will
help them pick out the
perfect tree," said Ethan.
The first day of the sale
will be from 9 a.m. to 10
p.m., Friday Nov. 23.
Following opening day,
the lot will be open from 5-
9 p.m., Monday through
Thursday, from 5-10 p.m.
Friday, from 9 a.m. to 10
p.m. Saturday, and from
1-9 p.m. Sunday.
"Watching someone go
home with one of our trees
makes me happy, knowing
I contributed to making
their holiday a 'bit' more
cheerful," said Aaron.

Attention Wise Home Owners...

"THE BEST OF TIMES IS OUR WORST OF TIMES AND HOW

YOU CAN BENEFIT FROM IT!"


Right now, you can actually replace
your old and inefficient heating and cool-
ing equipment for MUCH less than you
would have to pay at any other time of the
year. Here's why...

Every year, my business does pretty
well during the spring and summer
months, however during the mild falls and
winters here in Central Florida business
tends to slow way down. Each year the
mild weather can literally "kill" my busi-
ness. I'm worried that the same thing is
going to happen this year. I've done well
so far but I'm a little behind my
goals...and I'm very concerned that these
"killer" months could erase all of my prof-
its.
How I can drop my price?

By letting you win big now, I will win
at the end of the year...
I'm betting that if I make you an
offer that is "irresistible" (at least it should
be if your furnace or air conditioner is over
8 years old) and I barely mark it up to
cover my overhead, I will accomplish two
things:

1. I will cover my rent, utilities and
taxes in the "killer" months.
2. I can keep my professional staff of
installers working. My installers are
absolutely THE BEST. They're tech-
nical experts, they're drug-free,
they've been background checked,
they'll treat you courteously and
they'll take care of your home while
they're working in it. It took me long
time to find installers of this quality. I
sure can't afford to lose them by not
having enough work.


If I can accomplish these two
objectives, I will minimize my losses dur-
ing these bad months and the rest of the
year will come out as a winner!

How to take advantage of this
incredible opportunity
Just call Teresa at (321)-473-3100 any-
time. She can schedule a free in-home
consultation with one of our comfort
advisors. They will measure your home,
determine the proper size system and
give you all your replacement options.
Just in case you still doubt my offer, my
professional staff of comfort advisors will
show you the real world price on the air
conditioning and heating system that fits
your home. Then he will show you the
substantial savings now. The reduced
price will still include all the labor and
installation materials. Nothing is left out.
This opportunity is a win-win situation all
the way around. You get a new efficient
heating and cooling system at an incred-
ible savings, and I minimize my losses
through this tough season.
Absolutely No Obligation
Even after my comfort advisor complete-
ly explains the installation, there is
absolutely no obligation. If you decide
you don't want to take advantage of the
spectacular savings, that's okay. I will
give you a surprise gift worth $50.00 just
because you are kind enough to meet
with my comfort advisor. I want to thank
you for the opportunity, even if you don't
buy.

Fantastic Financing Options, No
Down Payment Required
You don't even have to pay for your sys-
tem right away. In fact, I've set up a ter-


rific plan where you don't have to pay a
dime for 1 full year! Consider this. If
you decide to make monthly invest-
ments instead of paying cash, the entire
amount of your payments might be
more than offset by the savings on your
utility bills. It's like "having your cake
and eating it too".

100% Satisfaction Guaranteed
I'm so confident that you will save at
least 25% on your cooling and heating
bills when you install our Premium sys-
tem that I will pay you double the differ-
ence if you don't! There is no way you
can lose! If these Premium systems
and my installation technicians weren't
the best in the industry, I could not
afford to make such a bold promise.
One Hour Air Conditioning has been
serving homeowners in Melbourne
since the 1960's. So, give us a call now
at (321)-473-3100. Teresa will schedule
the appointment for your no-obligation
comfort survey. If you need a new heat-
ing and cooling system, you can't afford
to pass up this incredible offer! Don't
forget...a surprise gift awaits you even if
you decide to pass up this once-in-a-
lifetime offer!

Rants 1AM&


Got something to say?

Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at

(321) 242-1276
or e-mail brevnews@hometownnewsol.com.
Callers are asked to refrain from making slanderous
statements. Statements of fact will be checked for
accuracy.


When did the definition change

I have very silly question to ask.
Watching the local news and they are talking about flyovers.
I thought a flyover is when the Air Force or some airport
planes fly over.
When did flyover (mean) an overpass?

No way to say, 'Merry Christmas'

Well, we are approaching the Christmas season and most of
us are sending Christmas cards to friends, neighbors and
acquaintances.
However, when shopping for boxes of Christmas cards, it's
next to impossible to find cards that say, "Merry Christmas" or
"Merry Christmas and Happy NewYear."
They say just about everything else.
What's the problem?
Why have they stopped manufacturing cards with the saying,
"Merry Christmas?
After all, that's the name of the season.

'Holiday' not same as 'Christmas'

I received the (Palm Bay newsletter) the other day and read
with great interest the listing on the back page of the events
going on for the next few months.
The one that I really found interesting was the "Holiday Tree
Lighting, which used to be called the Christmas Tree Lighting.
I think it is really ironic that it is on Dec. 8, the feast day of the
immaculate conception who (in case people either don't know
or have forgotten) is the mother of Jesus Christ. It is really his
birth that we celebrate on Dec. 25 and also the reason that most
people have the day off.
We really need to get back to the reason for this special day. If
some people cannot tolerate this, then they need to go work for
the people who are working and would love to have the day off,
to go to church and spend the day with their families-those
who really know the true meaning of the special day.
Holiday is not the same as Christmas.

Add three more to famous list
I was just reading, "Why no mention of Doug Flutie?" in the
Rants & Raves.
I went to the Web site and I see no mention of a few people
from Brevard County, namely, Clint Hurdle (the manager of the
Colorado Rockies) is not there. He's been heard of a few times
now.
Joey Mott was a downlineman for the New York Jets. Cal
Dixon was a (center/guard for the New York Jets) in the NFL, I
don't know if he's still active. I do know he has an annual fishing
tournament at Cape Canaveral.

I used to give Joey Mott a ride in my Corvette when he was 5
years old. His dad worked at the space center during the Apollo
program.
Just three I could mention. Just a little addition.

Make voice heard about illegals, imports

I am encouraged when I read the Viewpoint page and realize
the number of citizens who also have a problem with sugar-
coating the benefits of illegal aliens.
What we need to see more of are the statistics that show the
drain they are on all aspects of our economy. I, for one, would
like to know the cost of providing all of our services in Spanish.
Isn't there a requirement for prospective citizens to know
English as a requirement for citizenship?
What can we do about all of this?
Become involved and support only candidates who represent
your point of view. Notify your elected local, state and federal
politicians about your concerns. Send letters, e-mails or make
telephone calls to their offices.
They don't know unless we make them aware. They represent
us, not the illegal aliens.
I would rather pay more for fruits and vegetable (maybe grow
some of my own)than to pay the high taxes and more for med-
ical costs due to the ever-increasing drain on our economy.
Similarly, I believe parents and grandparent would be willing
to pay more for children's toys than pay a cheaper price at the
expense of their children and grandchildren's health.
If you are concerned as I am, make this known also to your
local, state and federal politicians.
Buy onlyAmerican-made toys for the children in your family
this Christmas.
Perhaps the top manufactures will get the message and bring
those jobs backto America.
China doesn't give a hoot about the safety of Americans.
The American people have the power, but it can only be used
through our government representatives.


Let your voices be heard by those who can do something
about this
If our voices are loud enough, maybe they will begin to listen
to us.

Best way to support troops
is to bring them home

I believe in helping the helpless, the Christian thing.
I believe in staying strong ourselves to be in a position to help
the helpless.
After Sept. 11, 1 supported the war. As I see it, we eliminated
the weapons of mass destruction (they were working on germ
warfare), took out the training camps for al-Qaida and even
took down Hussein.
Done! Now out!
War does not help the helpless. The helpless are raped,
slaughtered and (starved) in wars.
Who did we help in Vietnam? Big U.S. companies who get
military contracts.
Elected official do not have a right to hide personal finances.
When personal finances create conflict of interests, national
interests trumps personal finances even for the president and
vice president, both of whom profited from the war. The Sun-
shine Law gives the people the right to know who "owns" the
elected.
Our Constitution lists three contingencies for which our pres-
ident may be impeached: "Treason, accepting bribery, and
other high crimes against the state."
So how far off are personal interests? Just semantics?
We need to focus on national security, on quality of life here at
home, and where it was most needed in the world. That would
help the helpless. We have escalating poverty in this country.
The poor are getting more desperate and crime is increasing
alarmingly. Our commander in chief does not support our

Christianity of America's
founders is a certainty

That the country was founded by
Christians with a Christian view-
point should be beyond dispute for
anyone who wants to look into the
history.
Newt Gingrich, respected as a
teacher of history, has written of
this in "God in America and Win-
ning the Future." He cites many
precedents and decisions by presi-
dents and Supreme Court deci-
sions. He also has developed a tour
of Washington, D.C., that features
monuments to the faith of our
fathers.
A recent article, by (Jewish)
columnist and movie critic,
Michael Medved makes the case:
"The Founders Intended a Christ-
ian, not Secular, Society" (Oct. 3,
2007; www.townhall.com/Colum-
nists/MichaelMedved/2007/10/03/th
efounders_intended a chris-
tian%2Cnot_secular%2C_society).
Richard Brookhiser, a journalist
and historian, has written "What
Would the Founders Do? Our Ques-
tions, Their Answers" (Basic Books,
2006) in which he states: "Ameri-
cans were Protestant Christians"
(reviewed and Citizen, May 2007,
Focus on the Family).
Of course, he does not mean that
0 there were no Roman Catholics,
Jews or even Muslims, but that the
basic understanding of politics and


society was built on the basis of
Protestant Christianity, in a time
when Protestant Christians read,
believed, and developed their phi-
losophy from the Bible.
David Barton of WallBuilders
(www.wallbuilders.com) has devel-
oped helpful materials and links to
historical documents. In his "Amer-
ica's Godly Heritage," he cites
research that indicated that the
most quoted source by far for the
Founding Fathers was the Bible.
(Mr.) Gingrich referred to the
same research in "Winning the
Future."
Also, Gary DeMar of American
Vision has made available informa-
tion to demonstrate that America
was founded as a Christian nation
(www. americanvision. org/chris-
tianheritage.asp).
Presidential candidates that
agree include John McCain (who
recently took some flak for assert-
ing so (www.johnmccain.com);
Alan Keyes ("America's Revival,"
www.alankeyes.com, see also
www. declaration. net).
A political party that works to
"restore our government to its Con-
stitutional limits and our law to its
Biblical foundations" is the Consti-
tution Party (www.constitutionpar-
ty.com).
As for the Constitution's not
mentioning God, it was a short doc-
ument specifically delineating the
limits of a federal government. The
preamble includes among the pur-


Letters

poses to "secure the blessings of lib-
erty to ourselves and our posterity."
This language hints at religious
underpinnings. The Constitution
was written with the Declaration of
Independence as a defining back-
ground document. In the Declara-
tion, "All men are created equal,
they are endowed by their creator
with certain unalienable rights. It
also referred to "the Laws of Nature
and Nature's God." Early founders
wrote of the Constitution as being
adequate for a moral and religious,
specifically Christian people. (For
those who might be horrified at
such expressions, realize that they
understood no one could be forced
to become a Christian.)

Work toward creating a
national park

Please vote for the EELS purchase
west of Fox Lake.
I have had a vision to eventually
create a national park west of Inter-
state 95, which includes that area
and the other parcels surrounding
the Hunter Ridge piece.
We could combine those parcels,
the St. John's Water Management
parcels, Wildlife, Fox Lake Park, and
other public areas to save the St.
John's River from pollution and
provide public access.
Titusville and other cities would


benefit tremendously with eco-
tourism, visitation preservation,
etc6sf *
I will continue to ask our senators
to pass a bill to begin the process to
initiate the required national park
study and define the boundaries.
We should act now to prevent a
catastrophe similar to the Ever-
glades problem.

Prefers Sweeney to Bhola

Mr. Gaurav Bhola, a wannabe
for Congressman Tom Feeney's
seat, fits the Democrat liberal,
socialist mold perfectly.
The United States is one of the
few countries without universal
health care, claims Mr. Bhola.
Which country's example should
we follow, Mr. Bhola? Canada?
They come to the U.S. for major
care. England? They fly to India
and other countries for major
care. Of course, there is always
Cuban health care. Take your
pick.
Mr. Bhola thinks our education
system needs improvement. I
couldn't agree more! How does he
plan to get the union, which is
working diligently on the curricu-
lum of "dumbing down," out of
running our educational system?
"We need to get out of Iraq with


a viable solution," says Bhola, and
I'm sure the Democrats have that
solution. Need I say more about
his fitting the present Democrat
mold?
No thank you, Mr. Bhola. I will
vote for Tom Feenev. a tried and
true Congressman who has
proven by actions that he works
for the citizens, not just for his
political health. He saw through
the smokescreen of SCHIP (insur-
ance) and voted against its
He realized families earning
$83,000 were included in the pro-
gram and really poor families
were passed over. In addition, the
program included illegal immi-
grants. Mr. Feeney realized
SCHIP would cost the hardwork-
ing American taxpayer an extra
$6.5 billion and would encourage
millions more illegal immigrants
to flock to the U.S. As a responsi-
ble employee of the people, he
voted against it in spite of the fact
that he would be dubbed as a
Republican who relegated the
kids to the landfill.
In addition, through his genius,
he kept us from electing a global
warming president in 2000. These
are only a couple of examples of
the way he serves the people. I
like the fact that he has always
been a no-tax man. I'm more
concerned with my pocketbook
than our standing in the world.

troops. He sent our troops, lacking in proper protective equip-
ment, to their death.
That is an unforgivable disgrace; the unpardonable sin.
The best way to support the troops is to bring them home. We
need them home, alive, healthy and beautiful, where their tal-
ents can be used to help the helpless.

Union workers, others
should have planned for future

I am tired of unions crying and using that poor woman (who)
works for USA.
She worked for NASA for 27 years and she will get a govern-
ment pension. For 27 years, she received a pay check bigger
than 80 percent of the rest of Brevard County. If she didn't plan
for retirement, that's not our responsibility. Bet she wants
socialized medicine so the government will take care of her.
She could have done what I did (invest) a little in real-estate, a
401 K and (Social Security).
My pension was lost completely.
All these years it was "Wine, women and song." Now it will be
'A glass of beer, the old lady and television."
We expect to hear more of this (from) the "now generation"
that wanted everything now, disregarding the future.

Don't send the wrong corps to help helpless
To the misguided gentleman who thinks that you help the
helpless by sending in the Marine Corps: You are wrong.
To help the helpless, you send in the Peace Corps.
When you send in the Marine Corps the helpless get reclas-
sified as "collateral damage."
2,000-year-old Bible stories have little
to do with homosexual reality today
Homosexuality now has very little to do with the Bible or its
stories of 2,000 to 4,000 years ago.
Prejudice and fear has put it in a position of being a scape-
goat of blame and hatred.
The word sodomy from the stories passed down by word of
mouth in ancient times became the word to describe sexual
behavior.
This story of Sodom and Gomorrah is from the book of Gene-
sis in the Old Testament.
Before it was written down in the 13th or 15th century B.C., it
was only in the oral tradition.
We do not know how much of it is true or untrue. Emerging
knowledge in the fields of psychology, sociology and medicine
does not justify holding to prejudices passed on in these stories.
John Shelby Spong, former Episcopal bishop of New Jersey
and well-known author, said these things in his best seller, "Sav-
ing the Bible from Fundamentalism:"
"Scientific data which the 5th and 6th CenturyB.C. authors of
the Torah and St. Paul could not have imagined throws new
light on the causes of homosexuality."
Mr. Spong further states that homeosexual orientation isn't a
matter of choice, but a matter of inherited genes.
"This phenomenon has been present in human life since the
dawn of human history. It is present in higher mammals," writes
Mr. Spong.
"... and there has been no appreciable success despite all the
efforts of modem science including psychiatry in changing this
reality for the vast majority of persons.
... The authors of the Bible did not have the knowledge on
this subject that is available to us today. The sexual attitudes in
scripture used to justify the prejudiced sexual stereotypes of the
past simply are not holding in this generation."
I for one live in the present. My life is my opportunity to be the
very best I can.
If my chid is gay, I do not'stop loving him. If my brother and


sister are gay, they are still a part of my family and of me. I am
also in community with people of all kinds and colors, parts of
my world.
Why should I discredit them? If I do, I discredit myself.

Doctors won't treat older patients
after billing stops

My mother has had two back surgeries done by a reputable
doctor in Melbourne.
She is having a great deal of problems with pain, swelling in
her legs and feet and cannot get an appointment earlier than 30
days out to assist in identifying what could be a dangerous med-
ical problem. She has become partially immobile and this is not
the first time she has had this problem with her medical condi-
tion or trying to schedule an appointment in a timely fashion.
I have come to believe that due to my mother's age, the fact
that two surgeries have already been performed and the insur-
ance company has probably been billed as much as the doctor
can expect, there is no further need for the doctor to waste his
time on my mother even though she is still having problems.
I have heard this complaint from others her age and there is
no place, person or whatever that they can complain to.
Who can assist the elderly when they have no knowledge of
who to turn to for help/assistance?
Someone in this state needs to come to the aid of the elderly.
Who can they contact with what is felt as an urgent problem
spreading like a communicable disease among the physicians
that no longer treat patients as their own oath states.
Let our elderly community know who they can contact to
address this problem.
Editor's note: The Florida Department of Elder Affairs at
http://elderaffairs.state.fl.us/ may be able to help. They offer a
senior legal help line for people with legal questions, (888) 895-
7873.
Also, : there is an ombudsman program available at
http://ltcop.myflorida.com/index.jsp. The telephone numbers
are (888) 831-0404 and (850) 414-2323.

Folksy welcome not just for guys

When my husband and I go into the majority of restau-
rants, we are greeted with the saying, "How are you guys
doing."
I am appalled and insulted to think that I look like a guy.
As a senior citizen, I have a small build and dress like a
woman, so I certainly don't look like a man.
I think the owners of these restaurants ought to train the
young people how to address their clientele.
The word "folks" would be appropriate.

Won't hire a Florida lawyer anymore

Even through I reside in Florida, I will not use a Florida
lawyer again.
The reasons being, if the lawyer does not do what they are
supposed to:
*You will not be able to get a lawyer to file a malpractice suit
for you.
The Florida Bar will only slap their little finger if the media
contacts them.
Last but not least, the court will not do anything to help
you.
I know because it happened to me and others.

Fooling with Mother Nature
only raises taxes, insurance rates

I was wondering why people insist on (building) on land
that shouldn't be built on? .
Mother Nature needs these lands to keep everything bal-
anced.
(For instance) the barrier islands in Florida. People'build or
buy houses right up on the edge of the beach. Those beaches


are barriers for the mainland. They were (put) there by nature
to keep the ocean from overtaking the mainland. It worked
for thousand of years, but if you build on them you disrupt
the flow of nature (and) the ocean is going to take away and
bring back those islands over and over again.
That's why insurance is so high.
I have no pity for people (who) have condos and houses on
the beach. These are not poor, middle-class people. The same
thing (is true) with the people who built on the hills of Califor-
nia. They know that the fires and mud slides are going to
come and keep coming. People (who) build there take that
risk, just as we do here with hurricanes.
I don't see why everyone should pay higher insurance rates
or taxes to rebuild or help pay for this.
If you cut down trees on hillsides to build houses on the
slopes, you get mud slides. If you build in the middle of a for-
est that burns every year, you get houses burning down. If you
build right on a moving ocean, you get houses falling into that
ocean or storms tearing down those houses.
It's time for people to wake up and see the light, and the
ways of Mother Nature before it's to late for them.

Sorry DNC. No money for no representation

I recently received a request from the Democratic National
Committee (to) participate in a survey and, of course, con-
tribute money.
How stupid do they I am?
The DNC is threatening to disallow Florida delegates at
national convention.
No representation no money.

Illegals chose to violate law,
should be punished

In response to "Stop battering illegals; cherish them," the
fact that they choose to violate the law should disturb each
and every American citizen, whether or not our point of ori-
gin was the United States.
Definition Oxford Dictionary: Illegal: "contrary to or for-
bidden to law."
Both illegal and unlawful can mean contrary to or forbid-
den by law.
When a civilization ignores the laws that have been estab-
lished for our well-being, anarchy results if the government
fails to punish the offender.
The crime, violence and overcrowding of our prison sys-
tem, is symptomatic of a criminal justice system in disarray,
as a result of the judicial system failing in its duties to punish
the offender, to the maximum extent of the law.
As a result, the law-abiding citizen is paying with his/her
wallet and, in far too many cases, their lives.
Allowing illegals in without the proper documents only
encourages the lawless to become more brazen.

Don't drive in left lane if you drive slow

I want to commend the editor of Rants & Raves for pointing
out to the ranter regarding driving 70 Tnph on U.S. 1.
I agree the speed is too much, but the person should not be
driving in the left lane as so many drivers seem to do.

Why won't slower drivers stay to right?

(Regarding) your editor's note to "Ranter doesn't like those
who do 70 on U.S. 1" right on!
I respect an individual's right to drive at speeds at or below
the posted limit (because of one's) personal comfort level
with operating an automobile.
However, nothing irks me more on the road than drivers
who have no clue as to the right lane left/lane concept.
Please folks, if you're not within a half mile of your left hand
turn oryou're not in a passing maneuver, avoid road rage and
Why is this such a difficult concept for so many toe.asp?
Why is this such a difficult concept for so many to grasp?

state tells us to be," said Bre-
vard County supervisor of
elections Bob Galey.
But with publication of
sample ballots for the Jan.
29 presidential primary
election just three weeks
away, it might be difficult to
put the replacement elec-
tion on that ballot, he said.
Whatever the date, the
first round will be a primary
vote.
A special general election
between the top contenders
from each party will follow a
few weeks later.
Normally, the race would
have been settled via a pri-
mary in September 2008 fol-
lowed by a general election
in November.
Three Republicans Sean
Field Campbell and Dawn
Hooley, both of Merritt
Island, and Apryl Marie
Fogel of Titusville have
already announced their
candidacy.
As of press time, no
Democrats had announced,
although former Cocoa
Beach Commissioner Tony
Sasso has expressed-iinter-
est.
Mr. Sasso, who plans to
formally announce his can-
didacy soon as a Democrat,
said that while he feels sad-
ness for Rep. Allen and his
family, he supports his deci-
sion to resign.
As a city commissioner,
Mr. Sasso worked closely
with Rep. Allen on a number
of issues over the past four


years, primarily the local
effects of the Clean Ocean
Act.
"I am sad about the whole
thing, but I think it was the
right thing for him to do,"
Mr. Sasso said. "We need a
full-time representative up
there, and with everything
going on, I'm not sure he
had the ability to handle it at
this time. It takes a lot of
work to do it right."
Rep. Allen was elected in
2000 and would have been
forced out next year due to
term limits.
He closed his letter to
Speaker Rubio by saying, "I
look forward to working
with you and the members
of the Florida House in the
future."
In addition to probation
and a fine, Rep. Allen also
must reimburse the
Titusville Police Depart-
ment $245 for the time and
manpower it exerted July 11
after he was arrested.
He will be required to
attend an HIV awareness,
class and undergo testing

eases. "
Rep. Alen also will not be
allowed in Space View Park
in Titusville, where the
offense occurred.
Before sentencing, Mr.
Eisenmenger presented
arguments intended to con-
vince Brevard County Judge
Oscar Hotusing to overturn
the jury's guilty verdict.
Mr. Eisenmenger first
asked Judge Hotusing for a
new trial or dismissal of
charges.
The request was based on
comments made by assis-
tant state attorney Pat
Whitaker during closing
arguments at the trial.
Mr. Whitaker questioned
why Rep. Allen did not make
a statement at the time of
his arrest and why he didn't
testify at the trial, and he
made an invalid connection
between soliciting for a sex-
ual act and soliciting for

menger said.
After the judge rejected
that request, Mr. Eisen-
menger asked him to
reverse the jury's decision
and rule for an acquittal.
Judge Hotusing also
denied that request.
"I know you've been aware
of the degree (of) public
humiliation with this kind of
charge," Rep. Allen told the
judge before his sentence
was read. "I can tell you the
totality of it has been
tremendous."
Immediately following
sentencing, Mr. Eisen-
menger handed Judge
Hotusing papers to begin
the appeals process.
It will take three to four
months to get the court
transcripts and documents
necessary, and then the case
will go before an appellate
court, he said.
The whole process could
take as long as a year.
"If Mr. Allen had actually
been guilty 'of this crime,
then I think it would have
been an appropriate sen-
tence," Mr. Eisenmenger
said after court adjourned.
"I'm disappointed with the
jury's verdict, and I'm confi-
dent that we'll ultimately
prevail on appeal."
He said he has to take
some of the responsibility
for the verdict.
"I got a little too confi-
dent," he said. "I was confi-
dent that we had won the
case."
Mr. Eisenmenger said he
had intended to put Rep.
Allen on the witness stand,
but he didn't think it was
necessary after the state had
presented its case.
"Hubris is a terrible thing,
and it comes back and slaps
me in the face every so
often," he said.

Canaveral. Royal Caribbean
has not yet named a
replacement for the
Mariner, but we would like
to see one of Royal
Caribbean's new Freedom-
class ships come to the port.
The 154,000-ton ship, which
has all of the incredible
amenities of the Voyager-
class ship, has added
activities such as the new
H20 Zone and the
FLOWRIDER, the first ever
at-sea surf park. There's
truly something for every-
one.
We shall miss the Mariner
of the Seas, but before it
does the ship will continue
her alternating eastern and
western Caribbean itiner-
aries.
The other cruise options
that sail from Port Canaver-
al at this time are Disney
Magic and Disney Wonder,


repairs are being made to a
runway at Patrick Air Force
Base.
ATI will transport cargo
twice a week from the air-
port aboard DC-8 jets to
U.S. armed force bases in
Antigua.
The flights are expected to
last for six months.

Cooking a turkey is easy; pretend it's a very large chicken


Hello, smart shoppers.
I owe you the biggest
apology ever. How I
messed up and gave you
Thanksgiving's column after
the holiday, I will never
know.
I've been asked if the
Grammy Guru is a real per-
son. Now you know that it is
true. So, for those of you
who want turkey for Christ-
mas, this column is for you.
Any brand of turkey will
do, it's how you cook the
turkey will determine its
moistness. For my turkey, I
make my German Aunt
Margie's Sausage Stuffing.
According to my daughter-
in-law, Lisa, "It should be
patented!"
Roasting your first turkey
can be a terrifying cooking
experience. However, it isn't
hard to cook a turkey: Just
pretend it's a very large
chicken. I have given you
vegetable recipes in past
columns. Our vegetable
menu is mashed potatoes,
candied yams, mashed
rutabaga, German-style
spinach corn casserole and
green bean casserole, plus
nuts, pies and fruit.
Make as many foods as


possible a day or two before
to make your life easier.

Cookbooks: Check out
my cookbook special at the
end of the column. To all my
fans who are eagerly
awaiting my second book,
believe me I am eager to get
it finished. I'll keep you
posted.

The Guru's Special Hint:
When buying roll pork
sausage it is best to buy a
name brand such as Jimmy
Dean or Tennessee Pride.
They're more expensive but
there is very little fat to
drain off, so, there's more
sausage.

ROAST TURKEY

Thaw turkey, remove
giblets from the cavity and
neck, (no, it didn't come
already stuffed). Save
roasting instructions from
the turkey bag. Remove any
fat and soak the bird in cold
salted water for at least one
hour. Doing this gives the
meat a fresher flavor.
Rinse and dry with paper
towels. Rub turkey with
canola oil and sprinkle with


ARLENE BORG
Romancing the Stove
with the Grammy Guru


salt and pepper. To roast a
small turkey, place breast
side down on aV-rack. Turn
breast side up the last half
hour of roasting.
Another trick for a perfect
bird is to season and place it
in a paper supermarket bag.
Place in large roasting pan
and leave bag open. No
basting is necessary. Tear
open bag the last half hour,
baste and roast until golden.
For a very large turkey,
place it in a heavy roasting
pan, season as directed.
Make a tent of heavy duty
aluminum foil and place
over top of turkey. This will
prevent the moisture from
escaping. Baste occasionally


and roast until done.
Remove foil about 1/2 hour
before for a crisp crackly
skin.
If you choose to stuff the
turkey, be sure the stuffing
is cooled; bacteria can grow
when you place hot stuffing
into a cold bird. Loosely
stuff both the body and
neck cavity; the stuffing
swells as the bird cooks.
Close openings with turkey
skewers and string. Tie
wings and legs, and roast as
directed on the package.
Last year, we chose a 20-
pound bird. To free the oven
for the vegetables. I tried an
old method and timed it.
Put the turkey, tented
with foil, in a 200-degree
oven at 10 p.m. the night
before. At 10 a.m., set the
oven to 325 degrees. Cook
about 2 hours or until a
meat thermometer inserted
in the thigh registers 170-
180 degrees. Increase time
according to size. Baste
often. You'll get a tender and
juicy bird. You can also
remove the turkey from the
oven in the morning and
put it back into a pre-heated
oven 2 hours before you
plan to serve.
For an end result that is
easier for serving and lower
in fat, place stuffing in a


large covered casserole
rather than in the bird. Put
in oven the last hour and
baste with a squirt of turkey
drippings. Make gravy as
instructed in a previous
column.

TURKEY STUFFING

Enough for a large turkey,
22 pounds or more. Recipe
can be cut in half or freeze
the extra.

1 pound pork sausage (roll)
4 large onions, chopped

(optional)
2 teaspoons sage
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons chopped

Break up sausage and
brown in skillet. Drain and

small pieces.
Add sausage mixture and
broth. Mix thoroughly.
Taste. Add more salt if
necessary. Cool and stuff
turkey or cook in casserole
as explained in turkey
recipe.

Native Hunt Maintains Focus on
Professionalism, Customer Satisfaction


(Syndicated News) "There are two sides
to every story." An old adage that has proven
itself true time and time again in nearly
every area of life. In the case of guided hunt-
ing services, nothing could be closer to the
truth -- a fact that
Native Hunt iIB
(http:/,':native-
hunt.com i owner
T. Michael Riddle
knows well
"Hunting in
general i s a con-
troversial sport.," -
says Riddle.
"Some people
despise it while
other people-
couldn't lihe wih- -. .-
out it. At Natve .
Hunt, we under- .. . ..
stand both opin-
ions. We never try to push our viewpoints on
anybody; we simply offer our services and
let people decide for themselves."
Native Hunt is a licensed, state-bonded
hunting service with ranches located in
Monterey and Fresno counties in California.
In business since 1990, Native Hunt employs
both game management professionals and
trained hunting guides -- a combination that
has led to a 100 percent success rate for their


clients.
"Our professionals understand that not
everybody agrees with what they do," says
Riddle. "At the same time, however, they
have high expectations to live up to from our
clients: and at a 100
Percent success
rate, its hard to
.argue bLh iheirpro-
fessionaism "
Native Hunt offers
a wide variety of
guided huntingven-
s urens including one-
and rwo-day hunts
otr wild boar. bear,
turkey. deei. and a
number of assorted
game birds.
According to) Riddle,
Nat. N ie Flunt'_ ranch-
es offer minore than
just a haven for hunting enthusiasts. With
tree-covered hills, lush valleys and numer-
ous ponds, the company's property is the
perfect place for individuals who enjoy the
outdoors.
"At the basis of hunting is a love for the out-
doors," says Riddle. "We embrace the out-
doors and we believe in sharing our beauti-
ful settings with everybody -- both hunters
and non-hunters alike."

Graffiti goes legit in contest


LISA M. ONORATO
The Hype

Wanted:

unwanted

instruments
Sue Luley got a rock
star's greeting at Palm
Bay Elementary School
Nov. 15.
Throngs of screaming
children met Ms. Luley when
she and her associates
delivered $4,000 worth of
musical instruments to the
school.
The instruments were
purchased with proceeds
from the fifth annual Stephen
Miller Memorial Blues Bash,
an event in memory of the
local musician who died in
2003.
The delivery of the instru-
ments was ajoyous event for
Ms. Luley.
"I was a happy girl today,"
she said. "I loved it!"
Students received several
world drums, four violins, 10
keyboard stands, 12 sets of
headphones and two guitars.
Next year's recipient of
funds will be University Park
Elementary School in
Melbourne.
However, those interested
in helping to keep music alive
in Brevard County schools
don't have to wait until next
year's event to contribute.
Ms. Luley said an instru-
ment drive is being planned
for 2008. Collection.boxes will
be set up in local music stores
where people can donate
their used instruments.
"A lot of people have their
old high school instruments
in their closet," she said.
"We're asking people to drop
them off."
As of press time, participat-
ing stores included Florida
Discount Music, Marion
Music, Howie's Guitar Haven
and East Coast Music.
"The stores are more than
willing (to help out)," Ms.
Luley said.
For information on
donating an instrument, call
(321) 631-7231.

This weekend
Urban Subversion: Grafitti
artist Jeff Noble will host a live
painting demo at 8 p.m.
Friday, Nov. 23, at an art show
featuring Chris Slow, Derek
Gores, Chile and photogra-
pher Casey DeCotis at
IMAGO Fine Art & Fine Wine
in downtown Melbourne.
Piano: John Ryan will
perform at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov.
23, at MoonstruckWine Co.,
836 E. New Haven Ave.,
Melbourne. Call (321) 951-
4555.


The art event features artists from
throughout Florida, including Jeff
Noble of Melbourne Beach and
several known only by monikers like
"Slow" and "Cynic."
Though the contest is being touted
as a "graffiti" event, Julie Cain,
contest organizer and skatepark co-
owner, said she prefers the term "art
at-large," since the word graffiti
usually conjures up images of
vandals illegally marking or "tag-
ging" public property.
"We're trying to open the medium
for graffiti artists to be legitimate in
the eyes of the populous," said the
former teacher.
Ms. Cain said that she believes


there are talented people among
misunderstood street artists and she
hopes the event will give them a
positive outlet.
"I want to show them that they can
make a living (in art) if it's done
right," she said. "I guess that's the
teacher in me."
Melbourne Beach's Mr. Noble has
been getting a lot of press lately for
his murals, including ones at
Spessard Holland Park, North and
South and The Park skatepark,
where Ms. Cain first met Mr. Noble.
"I was really impressed with his
ability and professionalism," said

BY LISA M. ONORATO
Entertainment writer
Nothing fazes EdVolonni-
no much.
His steady hands have
carved tikis for almost 30
years, and his Zen-like
attitude toward his craft has
earned him legendary
status throughout Brevard
County.
Here most people know
him simply as Ed of Ed's
Heads.
He's carved for the
cameras and for the crowd.
And he takes it all in stride.
"I knew early on I'd be
doing this for a living," Mr.
Volonnino said. "I had no
doubt in my mind I'd be
doing it my whole life."
Born in St. Louis, he
moved to Florida in 1973. A
graduate of Cocoa Beach
High School, the 49-year-
old said he was always a fan
of Polynesian art and began
working with clay in junior
high.
When he was 20 years old,
he said, a transition
occurred in his work and he
moved toward the art of tiki
carving.
"It's interesting," Mr.
Volonnino said. "Sculpture
is about adding to some-
thing, and what I'm doing
now is taking away."
In the late 1970s, Mr.
Volonnino could often be
found hitchhiking up and
down local highways,
armed with a "log," or palm,
and a bucket full of tools. He
would set up along the road
to work for hours, selling his
tikis or simply drawing a
crowd.


Most people may know
him from his stint at
Conchy Joe's, where he
carved tilds on the deck
during business hours.
"That was my main studio
for selling heads for 13
years," Mr. Volonnino said.
These days, the one-of-a-
kind heads are made
exclusively at Mr. Volnnino's
home studio in Melbourne,
where he works quietly in
the shade, surrounded by
hundreds of colorful tikis
and drying sabal palms.
Despite going "under-
ground," he said his work is
more popular than ever. He
attributes it to the quality of
his work, which he said he
stresses over quantity.
"I'm not a fly-by-night tiki
guy," Mr. Volonnino said.
"(My tikis) are meticulously
well done. I'm not mass
producing them."
His original designs have
caught the eye of Holly-
wood. In 2006, he was
featured on Home and
Garden Television's "Offbeat
America" series.
His tikis also were used in
"I'll Believe You," a movie
shot in Melbourne featuring
Chris Elliot and Patrick
Warburton. The movie
recently premiered at
Cinema World.
Despite the popularity of
his work, his approach
hasn't changed. He said he
carves seven days a week.
"It's an addiction," Mr.
Volonnino said.
Despite his years of
experience, he said he's still
learning about his medium.
Though the sabal palms
take about one year to dry


almost 30 years.
out, Mr. Volonnino said he
never knows what he's going
to discover once he picks up
his chisel and mallet.
"They still fool me on how
(they) will carve, and I'm an
expert," he said with a
laugh.
Hesitant to explain his
process, he said has no idea
what each tiki will look like
until he starts working and
an image begins to take


form.
"It's wherever the. chisel
hits," he said. "You never
know what's going to
happen."

HighHeelsPoker antes up at greyhound park


Women's-only event offers
low buy-in, high potential


BY GRETCHEN SAUERMAN
Staff writer

MELBOURNE Thou-
sands of dollars and a bid to
a national tournament are
at stake when a women-
only poker tournament
comes to town next month.
"I felt there was a need for
women to earn money and
recognition playing
(poker)," said Lauren Failla,
founder of HighHeelsPoker-
Tour Inc., the first all-
women's poker tour on the
East Coast.
"We also want to recog-
nize the everyday person
who is also a good poker
player," she said.
The tour was founded
about six months ago and
has hosted seven tourna-
ments so far, said Ms. Failla.
"We have satellite tourna-
ments and feature tourna-
ments," she said. "Satellite
tournaments (like the one
planned for Melbourne)
require a smaller buy-in,"
said Ms. Failla. "Women can
go and see how they can
do."
Buy-ins for satellite
tournaments range from
$65-$200 and range from
$250-$10,000 for the feature
tournaments, she said. The
buy-in for the Melbourne
tournament is $65.
The tour recently com-
pleted tournaments at the
Daytona Beach Kennel Club
and Poker Room and the
Seminole Casino in
Brighton.
At the inaugural tourna-
ment in Pompano Beach,
the winner took home a
$5,407 top prize, said Leia
Bosco, assistant account
executive with Zucker
Public Relations.


Ms. Failla said she was
thrilled with the arrange-
ments and accommoda-
tions at the Melbourne
Greyhound Park, site of the
local tournament.
"They have a beautiful
room," she said. "I'm really
happy with it. We're hoping
a lot of the local women will
come out."
Although satellite tourna-
ments draw mostly local
players, some women travel
from other states to play in
the tournaments.
Winning a tournament
will garner a "free roll," or a
free buy-in to the World
Series of Poker Ladies
Circuit Event, Jan. 6, 2008 at
the Grand Casino Resort in
Tunica, Miss., said Ms.
Bosco.
Players do not have to be
members of the HighHeel-
sPokerTour to enter into
events, but membership
does have its privileges, said
Ms. Failla.
For an annual fee of $30,
members receive discounts
at partnering casinos,
invitations to private events,
a tour'hat, she said.
A poker player herself, Ms.
Failla hopes to bring more
women into the sport.
"I enjoy playing poker,"
she said. "It's all about how
you play your two cards and
how you read the other
players."
No Limit Texas Hold 'Em,
the game played in the
tournament, deals two
"hole" cards to each of as
many as 10 players at the
table. Through the course of
the hand, five community
cards are uncovered, with
betting opportunities
throughout.
The best five-card hand

(Syndicated News) More Americans are
using natural treatments to complement
traditional medical treatments when facing
everything from simple illnesses like the
common cold to life-threatening illnesses
like cancer.
In fact, natural products are an
increasingly popular option for many
Americans. According to the National
Center for Complimentary and Alternative
Health, approximately 36 percent of con-
sumers in the United States opt for compli-
mentary natural treatment, a number that
rises significantly to 62 percent when
prayer and megavitamin therapy are con-
sidered part of natural treatments.
Interestingly, the majority of those
Americans complementing traditional
medical treatments with natural treatments
are women.
Dherbs (http://dherbs.com), a
company dedicated to educating con-
sumers about the importance of health and
nutrition, focuses largely on women, who
make up 75 percent of the company's clien-
tele.
"To heal this nation, we must first
heal the women," says Djehuty Ma'at-Ra,
know as "The People's Herbalist." "It is our
philosophy that there are no diseases that
cannot be cured with natural treatments. In
reality, we believe that there is only one real
disease that exists today, and that is toxici-
ty."
They have a large client base for
treating herpes with their Anti-Viral Kit.

courtesy of his family. His
great-granddaughter,
MarinaVakos, who lives in
Viera, has recently begun
the task of researching his
art and adventures in Cuba,
where he owned a sugar
plantation and even had a
run-in with Fidel Castro
before he took over the
county.
"(My great-grandfather)


was trusted and loved by so
many down there," she
said. "I'm doing this for
him."
She said the family
currently has 12 of Mr.
Lawrence's paintings,
including a self-portrait,
but she believes there are
several more paintings out
there because he willed
some to people outside the
family at the time of his
death in 1972.
Paintings featured in the
exhibit include "Corrida de
Cintas,"or "Race of the
Ribbons," and "Tein
Quidado,"or "Be Careful"
and "Lechon Asada" or
"Roast Pig."
"He painted people-their
customs and habits," Ms.
Vaskos said. "I've seen them
my i6le life, and I've
always loved them."
Though a United States
embargo in 1962 has placed
a stranglehold on goods
going in or out of Cuba, the
federal government con-


-

ceded in 1995 that art
should be included in the
category of "informational
material," alongside
literature, which cannot be
kept from U.S. citizens
under the First Amend-
ment.
Because of this, Ms. ,
Pravden is able to travel to
Cuba to purchase modern
art for her gallery, Cuba!
Gallery of Fine Art in
downtown Melbourne. Ms.
Pravden is licensed through
the U.S Department of
Treasury's Office of Foreign
Assests Control.
The Brevard Art Museum
approached Ms. Pravden
with the idea of exhibiting
Cuban artwork.
"We always welcome the
opportunity to feature work
by artists from outside our
culture," said Ms. Bdtsanyi.
"This is really about the
connection (to the work),
and expertise as collectors
that Marjorie and Dawn
have."


* s- -m0 -


Ms. Borsanyi said the
exhibit features both
"academic and self-taught"
artists, who often lack the
art supplies many Ameri-
can artists have. Essentially,
the artists are "recording a
way of life," she said.
In Cuba, artists are the
emerging middle class, said
Ms. Pravden. "Any kind of
exposure is good for the
artists back in Cuba," she
said.
An opening reception for
"Figurative and Folk Art
from Cuba" will be from
5:30-7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 30.
On Thursday, Dec. 6, Ms.
Pravden will host a gallery
walk at 1 p.m.
The Brevard Art Museum
is at 1463 Highland Ave.,
Melbourne.

And even those diseases deemed incurable
can be cured with natural treatment,
according to Ma'at-Ra.
One of Dherbs' most popular prod-
ucts is the Full Body Detox Kit, which
comes complete with detailed instruction.
and a dietary regimen, and is designed to
detoxify the body from harmful toxins
while also rejuvenating the individual.
In addition to the many herbal sup-
plements and herbal products sold on
Dherbs.com, they offer visitors a virtual
library of articles, all aimed at educating
consumers about the importance of health
and nutrition. Visitors to their site can also
chat about health topics with others, check
out archives of past articles, ask an herbal-
ist questions about getting healthier, and
browse the Herbal Recommendation Chart

their particular needs.
The official Dherbs Web site also
features DHTV, a library of online educa-
tional videos that feature episodes of "Ask

videos on important health matters,
including weight loss and cancer.
"Our goal at Dherbs is to provide
consumers with the information they need
to make the right decisions about their
health," Ma'at-Ra says. "We hope to
achieve that goal by offering the best all-

YOUTH ACTIVITY" & SPORTS


Melbourne rides wave of wins into regional semifinal
BY ROB SHELBURNE ____ _
Sports writer .,,_:-:,.


Much like a heavyweight
boxer pulls himself off the
canvas to fight to the bell,
the Melbourne Bulldogs
have clawed their way to a
second-round playoff game
this week with local neme-
sis Palm Bay.
Down 14-0 with 9:00 to
play, the Bulldogs got clutch
performances last week
from quarterback Matt
Spinazzola and their
defense to defeat a much
bigger, much deeper
Atlantic High School Eagles
team 28-21 in a captivating
double overtime regional
quarterfinal game last week
at Bulldogs Stadium.
Spinazzola, playing on a
severely sprained ankle in
the second half, had to be
taken off the field in the
final minutes of the game,
as Melbourne evened the
score in regulation.
The gutsy senior signal
caller returned in overtime,
scoring from the one-yard
line to tie the Eagles at 21-
21 before Ericck Clark
found David Reed in the
end zone for the game-win-
ning score on Melbourne's
second overtime posses-
sion.
Melbourne's defense
struggled to contain
Atlantic's passing game in
the first half, but figured it
out after the break, inter-
cepting Eagles' quarterback
Mark Leal twice and dishing
out punishment on every
play.
"We don't know exactly
how bad it is," Bulldogs
coach Todd Wilson said of
his quarterback's injury.
"But he's a tough kid."
Melbourne will need
another courageous effort
this week if they are to see a
repeat of the victory that
threw the local Class 5A
playoff picture into chaos
last month.
Melbourne defeated the
Pirates 22-15 Oct. 26 in the
first of three straight district
wins in a span of eight days
that clinched the district
title and forced Palm Bay.to
play on the road last week.
The Pirates beat the
South Fork Bulldogs handi-
ly, 31-8, setting up this
week's rematch at Bulldogs

Lukas Harden for Hometown News
Melbourne Bulldogs senior wide receiver David Reed (No. 9) leaps over three Atlantic
High School defenders to grab a game-tying touchdown pass in the fourth quarter of the
Bulldogs 28-21 double-overtime victory in the Class 5A regional quarterfinals Nov. 16.
The Bulldogs take on the Palm Bay Pirates this week in a regional semifinal game at Bull-
dogs Stadium. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. Nov. 23.


Stadium.
"I don't think I've ever
been prouder of a group of
young men," Wilson said
after the overtime thriller
last week. "We've been in
every kind of hole imagina-
ble this year, but the guys
refuse to quit."
This week's game, again,
will feature two of the best
running backs in the coun-
ty.
Between them, Mel-
bourne sophomore Cortez
Ray and Palm Bay senior
Stephon Mercer accountfor
nearly 2,500 yards rushing
and 22 touchdowns this
season.
The two-backs go about
their business in drastically


different ways.
Mercer likes to break runs
off tackle and scoot around
the end, while Ray is a more
powerful, bruising runner
who wears down a defense
throughout the course of
the game.
Ray chalked up a rather
pedestrian 136 yards on 27
carries last week but was
kept out of the end zone.
Mercer was held to 88
yards on 14 carries by South
Fork, but had touchdown
runs of two and 33 yards.
Melbourne's victory last
week was its sixth in a row,
following a 2-3 start to the
season, and its first win in
the postseason since 2004.
The Bulldogs haven't won


a 'state championship in
football since 1966. If they
are to get another one, they
will have to win four more
games without a loss, start-
ing this week with Palm Bay.
"I think we woke them
up," Wilson said of the Oct.
26 win over the Pirates, who
went on to win their final
two games by a combined
score of 89-16. "I don't think
they were ready the first
time around. They're a good
team. They'll be ready. We
have to be ready."
Kickoff for this week's
regional semifinal is set for
7:30 p.m. Nov. 23 at Bull-
dogs Stadium on the cam-
pus. of Melbourne High
School.


FACA releases All-District selections


BY ROB SHELBURNE
Sports writer
Several area football players were
honored by the Florida Athletics
Coaches Association as All-District 11
team selections for 2007.
Headlining the first-team selections
for the Melbourne High School Bull-
dogs were junior offensive guard Jacob
Wischnefski and senior linebacker
ColbyWolk.
First-year Bulldogs coach Todd Wil-
son had high praise for both players.
"Colby is a team captain and leader,"
Wilson said. "(He's) an extremely intel-
ligent kid. He leads our team with 85
tackles. He's a hard-nosed football
player.
"Jacob is a quiet leader (and) our best
drive blocker. He's a big part of the rea-
son we have run the ball as well as we
have."
Wilson said both players are 4.0 stu-


"Colby is a team captain and
leader. He's) an extremely
intelligent kid. He leads our
team with 85 tackles. He's a
hard-nosed football player.
Todd Wilson,
Bulldog's coach
dents in addition to being good foot-
ball players.
Place kicker Bradley Holmes was
selected to the All-senior team.
Holmes had eight field goals in the
regular season, second-most in Bre-
vard County.
Grabbing honorable mention was
1,000-yard rusher Cortez Ray; tight end
Chris Duguay; defensive tackle Adam
Fischer; linebacker Marty Stadom;
running back Keith Johnson; and line-


man Zachary Zimach.
Defensive tackle Stephon Dzarza and
safety Justin Rose represent the Eau
Gallie Commodores on defense.
Offensive lineman Justin Frontz, run-
ning back Chris Pushman, defensive
back Jacob Thompson and linebacker
Matt Perry were listed as honorable
mention.
"To be selected to this team is truly
an honor," Commodores head coach
Todd Oas said. "With the caliber of tal-
ent in the county and the 25-plus
schools in (the) district, the competi-
tion is extremely tight. Eau Gallie has a
right to be proud that Dzarza and Rose
made this team."
The MCC Hustlers are represented by
senior running back Joe Toppa, who
was named as FACA Player of the Year,

4:32, scoring on a two-yard
run by Darnell Kirkwood
with 11:02 to play in the
first half.
Led by. sophomore quar-
terback Mark Leal, the
much bigger Eagles took it
to the Bulldogs the remain-
der of the half, stopping
Melbourne's vaunted run-
ning game and holding a
14-0 lead at intermission
after Leal hit senior Bre-
ante Allen with a 45-yard
scoring pass at the 1:45
mark of the second quar-
ter.
But that was as goodl as it
would get for the Eagles as
the Bulldogs responded
with a physical perform-
ance of their own the rest
of the way.
The two teams battled
mightily through the third
quarter with Atlantic cling-
ing to its 14-point lead as
the teams switched ends to
start the fourth quarter.
Hobbled quarterback
Matt Spinazzola led 'the
Bulldogs downfield, scram-
bling for a first down at the
Eagles' 27-yard line with
just more than 9:00 to play.
An Atlantic sack and a
chop-block penalty set up
a third-and 26 at the
Eagles' 45-yard line, when
Spinazzola rolled right and
hit tight end Chris Duguay
with a short pass over the
middle.
The 6-foot-4-inch senior
broke three tackles and
rumbled into the end zone
to bring the Bulldogs to
within 14-7 with 8:24 still
to play.
With the Eagles at their
own 29-yard line, Mel-
bourne linebacker Keith
Johnson stepped in front of
a Leal pass in the right flat
and held on for the team's
third interception of the
game, giving Melbourne
the ball at the Atlantic 28-
yard line.
A defensive holding
penalty and a roughing the
passer call set the Bulldogs
up with a first-and-goal at
the Atlantic nine-yard line
with 3:40 left in the game.
The roughing penalty
knocked Spinazzola out of
the game, and junior
defensive back/wide
receiver Ericck Clark took
over at quarterback for the
Bulldogs.
From the shotgun forma-
tion, Clark rolled right and
hit a leaping David Reed in
the end zone to tie the
game at 14-14 with 2:33 to
play.
Melbourne's defense con-
tinued to stand its ground,
breaking up a pass on
fourth down to send the
game to overtime.
The two teams traded
scores in the first overtime
with Spinazzola plowing in
from the one-yard line to
tie it at 21-21.
On the Bulldogs' second
possession of overtime,
Clark hit Reed in the back
of the end zone on third-
and-eight and Melbourne
had its first lead of the
game, 28-21
The Bulldogs' defense,
then, forced Atlantic into a
fourth-goal from the six-
yard line.
Leal heaved a pass into
the end zone, but defen-
sive back Torrance Randall
batted the ball down, seal-
ing the victory for Mel-
bourne.
Sophomore running back
Cortez Ray ran for 136
yards on 27 carries for the

North Florida Christian
Eagles 28, FAA Falcons 6
The Eagles held FAA run-
ning back Umar Merritt to
21 yards on 12 carries,
while their offense racked
up 276 yards on the
ground, dashing the state
title hopes of the Falcons.
NFC's David Read
accounted for 159 yards
and two touchdowns as the
Eagles built a 28-6 halftime
lead on the strength of four
second-quarter touch-
downs.
FAA running back Jeffrey
Keels helped keep the Fal-
cons in the game with an
83-yard touchdown run in
the second quarter, but the
Eagles proved to be too
much for the falcons, who
were making their first-
ever playoff appearance.

Golf

Husrtwins pro qualifying
tournament ,
Holy Trinity senior, and
2007 Rolex Junior Player of
the Year, Vicky Hurst won
the 2008 Duramed Futures
Tour qualifying tourna-
ment at the Cleveland
Heights Golf Club in Lake-
land Nov. 6-9.
Hurst carded rounds of
72-68-72-71 to finish at 5-
under-par 283, one stroke
ahead of fellow amateur
Sara Brown of Thcson,
Ariz., and two shots clear of
Chella Choi of Seoul, Korea.
Choi also is an amateur.
The victory over a field of
more than 200 aspiring pro
golfers grants the budding
star full exempt status as a
Professional or amateur on


and lineman Joe Perno.
Hogan led the Hustlers
with four interceptions, and
Paige was MCC's leading
tackler with 129 tackles, sec-
ond-most in Brevard Coun-
ty.
Hustler's head coach Mike
Riazzi said he and the


the 2008 Duramed Futures
Tour, considered a training
ground for future LPGA
players.
Hurst has.not announced
a decision on her plans to
either turn professional or
go to college in the fall.
Among the schools she said
she is interested in are
Florida, where her sister
Kelly is a red-shirt fresh-
man on the Lady Gators
golf team; Vanderbilt; Wake
Forest; and Duke. She told
reporters after her victory
she will make a decision by
March 2008.
The win caps a successful
season for Hurst who failed
in her bid for back-to-back
Class 1A state champi-
onships at the Ridgewood
Lakes Golf and Country
Club in Davenport Oct. 30,
losing by one shot to Kyle
Roig of American Heritage
High School.
Hurst had a stellar year
2007 on the junior golf cir-
cuit where she was named
the 2007 Rolex Junior Play-
er of the Year by the Ameri-
can Junior Golf Associa-
tion.
Her junior golf season
included three victories,
three runners-up finishes
and berths on the Canon
Cup East Team and PING
Junior Solheim Cup U.S.
Team. Hurst also qualified
for the U.S. Women's Open,
advanced to the Round of
16 at the U.S. Women's
Amateur and nearly made
the cut at the LPGA's Ginn
Open.
Hurst ended 2007 ranked
No. 1 with eight top-10 fin-
ishes and three AJGA victo-
ries. She posted 33 rounds
during stroke play compe-
tition with an average of
72.6. Fifteen times she shot
72 or better, including a 6-
under-par 66 at The Coun-
try Club at Mirasol during
the the Birks & Mayors
Junior Championship.

Titans reign at local
amateur championship
BCC's Chris Muratore led
a contingency of Titans
golfers, winning the Bre-
vard County Amateur
Championship Nov. 10-11
at Royal Oak Resort and
Golf Club in Titusville.
Muratore's 36-hole total
of 2-under-par. 142. was-
-.four shots better than fel-
low Titan Spencer Burson
(72-74 146) and five
strokes ahead of Chris
Goldan .(70-77-147), the
tournament's first-round
leader and also a BCC
golfer.

Find unique gifts in downtown Melbourne


More than 100 convenient boutiques, art galleries,
antique shops, eateries await local shoppers


BY GRETCHEN SAUERMAN
Staff writer


MELBOURNE If holiday shopping
conjures memories of long lines and
crowded malls, try downtown Mel-
bourne for a change of pace.
With more than 55 unique shops and
boutiques, 20 art galleries, studios and
antique shops, more than 25 eateries
and bakeries and a dozen salons,
downtown Melbourne has something
for everyone.
Instead of parking in far away lots
and walking long distances to find the
same gifts offered in nearly every mall
across America, downtown shoppers
can park steps away from boutiques
and stores that offer one-of-a-kind
items for everyone on their list.
New this year are the shops in the
Railroad Emporium, 924 E. New Haven
Ave.
For the nautical fan, Sea Things offers
decorative shells and ceramics.
"We have gifts for everybody in every
price range," said Jeanne Simpson,


owner of Sea Things.
Open since last April, the shop offers
Blue Sky ceramic items, decorative wall
hangings and other seaside-themed
items.
A large selection of wine accessories,
including bottle stoppers and decora-
tive wine bottle tags will dress up any
gift bottle of wine, said Ms. Simpson.
For those looking to make a healthy
start for the New Year, Suzan's Health
Haven offers a complete line of organic
supplements and foods.
"We have also have skin care and hair
care items for men, women and
children," said Susan Onderko, owner
of Suzan's Health Haven.
Hungry shoppers can stop in for an
energizing lunch or organic snack
made fresh each day. A variety of
organic energy bars are inexpensive
stocking stuffers, especially for college
students, said Ms. Onderko.
At the north end of the Railroad
Emporium, shoppers can stop in at the
Albatross, offering island-style clothing
and accessories.


With Tommy Bahama and Fossil
brands, the store offers many unique
gift opportunities.
While a large selection of Fossil
watches are available, one unique new
Fossil item is a leather passport holder,
likely to be a popular man's gift, said
Michelle Davis, whose family owns the
store. The passport holder comes in
vintage brown or traditional black
leather and is packaged in a custom
gift tin.
"We also have clothing, towels,
cologne, watches, belts, jewelry and
tropical Christmas ornaments, said Ms.
Davis.
For the four-legged friend on your
holiday list, Woofington's is one of the
Railroad Emporium's newest additions.
Presents for pooches range from a
$1.75 tasty biscuit to a $155 designer
dog carrier, said Kristin Leitz, owner of
Woofington's.
One-of-a-kind pet clothing, collars,
leashes, snacks, carriers and beds line
the walls of the cozy boutique.
Less than a block west of the Railroad
Emporium, some of Melbourne's most
popular shops are found in the Mel-
bourne Arcade, 909 E. New Haven Ave.
For those who love all things British,


Lord Ravenswood Hall offers every-
thing you need for a traditional English
Christmas.
In addition to Christmas pudding
and Christmas cake, Lord Ravenswood
offers Christmas crackers little tubes
filled with small gifts and wrapped in
foil.
Cadbury and Nestle chocolate tins
are popular office gifts, said Kim
Cruickshank, proprietor.
Only a few doors down inside the
Arcade, Mrs. Cruickshank recently
opened Mermaid, a store offering
items to soothe the soul.
"The whole reason I opened (Mer-
maid) was because I got really stressed
out trying to do everything during the
holidays," said Mrs. Cruickshank. "The
only way I could get rid of the stress
was by listening to wind chimes,
looking into my gazing ball and
hearing my indoor water fountain."
The store offers many of the same
items that helped Mrs. Cruickshank
relax, making the store a good place to
find the perfect item for the over-
stressed person on your list.

salts and all natural soaps fill the air,
offering a little respite for the shopper
as well.
Shoppers will have a hard time
staying away from Kilwin's, the confec-
tionary shop directly across New
Haven from the Melbourne Arcade.
In addition to many choices of
mouthwatering fudge, Kilwin's also
offers Nutcracker Sweets, caramel-
coated popcorn with pecans and
almonds, said Charlie Thompson, a
member of Kilwin's production team.
Kilwin's has continued its program of
sending fudge to the troops. Patrons
who buy two slices of fudge can donate
a third one to the troops for free.
"I'm getting ready to send 150 slices
(to the troops) right now," said Mr.
Thompson.
Holiday shopping can be hard on the
feet, and Heel Thy Sole, 1905 Municipal
Lane, has the perfect solution.
In addition to a selection of unique
shoes from top designers, the store also
offers several manicure and pedicure
packages.
While walk-ins are accommodated,
shoppers can call ahead at (321) 728-
1200 to avoid waiting.
After experiencing some much-
needed TLC, shoppers may also want


to purchase spa gift certificates or
trendy handbags or Alison Osborne
custom jewelry.
Shoppers will enjoy delving into the
many shops in downtown Melbourne,
some on the main streets, and others
tucked down alleys.
At the western end of the district,
shoppers can find that special formal
gown, suit or tuxedo for the holiday
party season.
Celeste Ratteray, owner of Celeste
Creations, is part of a three-generation
team offering formal wear for women

"We also do custom gift baskets,"
said Ms. Ratteray. "When a customer
comes in and says, 'I would like you to
help me with a special night,' we can
create a basket with wine glasses, fruit,
chocolate, silk roses and maybe even a
garter."
Holiday shoppers will once again be
treated to several special shopping
events, thanks to the hard work of the
members of Melbourne Main Street.
The downtown merchants are
teaming up for the seventh annual


Holiday Open House and Candlelight
Shopping night, said Laird Gann,
program manager of Melbourne Main
Street.
For five consecutive Saturdays
starting Nov. 24 and concluding Dec.
22, merchants will be open later, from
6 to 9 p.m.
The Candlelight Shopping starts with
a tree-lighting Nov. 24, followed by an
Original English Candlelight Shopping
with carriage rides and strolling
bagpipers Dec. 1.
The Melbourne Light Parade com-
mences at 6 p.m., Dec. 8, and hayrides
will be offered during the "Olde
Country Christmas" Dec. 15. The event
concludes Dec. 22 with last-minute
holiday shopping and free gift-
wrapping.

Unique holiday treasures found in Old Eau Gallie

Art galleries, antique shops, holiday d6cor abound
in unique, newly redeveloped downtown district .


BY GRETCHEN SAUERMAN
Staff writer
MELBOURNE For hard-to-find
holiday gifts with a local flair, mer-
chants in Old Eau Gallie have plenty of
creative offerings.
Because the Eau Gallie area has
become a haven for local artists, many
of the area's stores offer a variety of
handcrafted items for every budget.
Inside the Art and Antique Studio,
1419 Highland Ave., nearly a dozen
artists and craft makers have gift items
for sale.
Novelty soap items, carved to look
like little ducks, cats, angels, Santas
and more, sell for as little as three for
$10, said Therese Ferguson, president
of the co-op gallery.
Other stocking stuffers or inexpen-
sive gifts include pins made from old
buttons entwined with fine crochet
work and porcelain tree ornaments.
Hand-turned wooden bowls created
by a Jamacian artist are make nice desk
accessories for men on your gift list,
said Ms. Ferguson.


To dress up any holiday outfit, pure
silk "toppers" in a variety of colors and
patterns compliment both light and
dark outfits, she said.
Across the street from the studio, Art
Supply of Melbourne offers paints and
painting supplies for the budding artist
on your list.
For those seeking eclectic holiday
decorations, the Eau Gallie Florist,
1490 Highland Ave., has dozens of
ornaments, pre-lit trees and table
decorations.
Glitter cones, in sizes from 1-5 feet
tall, resemble whimsical narrow,
colorful Christmas tree renderings.
Other quirky trees are made in non-
traditional colors and textures, such as
a fuzzy, pink tabletop tree or a tree
made entirely of peacock feathers.
Popular ornaments include sequin-
encrusted holiday-themed words, like
"naughty."
. Glass orbs and gazing balls are
popular gift choices, said Alexis
Johnsten, co-owner.

From page 5
The Eau Gallie Florist also stocks a
variety of the highly collectible Jim
Shore figurines, in holiday and tropical
themes.
Some of the figurines have been
treated with a special resin so they can
be used for outdoor gardens, Ms.
Johnsten said.
Steps away from the Eau Gallie
Florist, Global Tours and Travel offers a
unique gift-giving opportunity for that
hard-to-buy-for person on your list.
Instead of paper gift certificates,
Global Tours and Travel has created a
re-loadable credit card, allowing
shoppers to purchase the gift of travel
in any denomination.
"Some people use this for their
honeymoon registries," said Geraldine
Blanchard, vice president of Global
Tours and Travel. "Some companies
give it to their staff members as a
holiday reward."
The gift cards can be applied toward
any travel arrangements the agency
can arrange, including air fare, hotel
and cruises.
Global Tours also offers day trips and
overnight ventures on their own
private motorcoach, said Ms. Blan-
chard.
Companies can arrange holiday


parties with the motorcoach shuttling
as many as 57 passengers to destina-
tions like Orlando, she said.
Shoppers can visit the area Saturday
mornings from 8 a.m. to noon, when,
the Old Eau Gallie Farmers Market sets
up shop at the corner of Eau Gallie
Boulevard and Highland Avenue.
In addition to some of the freshest
produce in the area, the farmer's
market vendors also offer food, spice
and craft items that can be the perfect
gift for those who spend time in the
kitchen.
Because the weather is getting cooler,
the best way to experience the diverse
stores in the Eau Gallie district is by
parking your car and walking through
the streets ancdwindow browsing.
A plethora of shops, galleries and the
Brevard Art Museum set among quiet
tree-lined streets provide a low-stress,
unique shopping experience in the Eau
Gallie neighborhood.
To contact Art and Antique Studio,
call (321) 253-5553; to contact the Eau
Gallie Florist, call (321) 259-8184; to

Unusual toys available in


Brevard County stores


BY DARRELL JOHNSON
Staff writer


If the holidays have a consistent theme, it has
to be toys.
The toy megastores have taken an enormous
bite out of the market, but a handful of locally
owned or operated shops still serve discriminat-
ing customers in Brevard County.
Space Coast Hobbies is a general hobby shop,
said Elaine Rios.
"We sell remote control things such as
airplanes, helicopters and cars," she said. "We
also have model trains and rocketry items."
The store also deals-in models cars and
finishing materials.
Space Coast Hobbies is at 2135 Palm Bay Road
N.E. For information, call (321) 722-3696.
One unique attraction is Melbourne Magic, a
small shop with shelves spilling over with the
tools of all types of trickery.
"Our store serves everyone from the beginner
magician to the professional, seasoned stage
performer, close-up performer or street per-
former," said owner MarkAlvarez.
He said during the holidays a man walked in
wanting to do a magic trick for his grandchil-


dren, got hooked and ended up doing magic for
the rest of his life.
"It's an incredible hobby and you never stop
learning, and that's the beauty of it," Mr. Alvarez
said. "You're hooked from the moment you see
the look on the faces of the people you're
performing for."
The store carries coins, cards, stage effects and
ventriloquism supplies, he said.
He also carries ventriloquial figures, as
ventriloquists' dummies are properly known.
Mr. Alvarez said parents can find gifts for even
the very young.
"For a 2-year-old, you can get a magic wand
and a coloring book," he said. "In the coloring
book you can make the colors disappear; you
can make the coloring book go blank. It all
depends on the aptitude of that 2-year-old."
Obviously, this is no ordinary coloring book.
It's a special prop, he said.
Melbourne Magic is at 1704 N. Wickham
Road, Melbourne. For information, call (321)
752-5700.
Not far away is Northside Hobbies Kit Bunker,
which deals exclusively in plastic model kits and

supplies.
"A lot of younger kids start out with
cars," said owner PaulWithrow. "But most
of my clientele is in their 20s to 40s, and
it's an Air Force town, so aircraft are more
popular than cars, and cars are more
popular than ships."
Northside Hobbies also sells items such
as paint and airbrush supplies.
The store is at 2750 Aurora Road. For
information, call (321) 255-1659.
Jim's Dollhouses in downtown Titusville
has a few items that are child-oriented,
but most of the kits and furnishings are for
serious collectors, said KimWendt.
Her father, Jim Butts, owns the store,
and they work as a team to serve regular
and new clients.
The shop is filled with assembled
dollhouses decorated with fine furnish-
ings.
If that sounds a bit overblown, it's not.
Furniture, accents and even window
treatments are available to assemble a
prestige home in a very small scale.
Jim's Dollhouses is at 329 S. Washington
Ave., Titusville. For information, call (321)
267-4995.
The Toy Box in Cocoa Village is another
store that deals strictly in dollhouse
miniatures, said Ralph Page, who owns
the shop with his wife, Janice.

Mr. Page said his customer base is split
evenly between youngsters and adults.
"We have everything from miniatures
that are museum quality down to some
simple and very sturdy ones for young
children," he said. "We sell (dollhouses) as
kits, and I'll put them together if someone
wants to pay the price."
His primary market is people who
purchase kits and take them home to
assemble themselves, he said.
"We have everything from lamps and
very small pieces like that, and miniature
food," he said. "This is my wife's hobby
that just got out of hand, and I got dragged
into it screaming all the way."
He said Mrs. Page works in the front
while he mans the construction and
supply area in the back.
The Toy Box is at 419 Brevard Ave. in
Cocoa. For information, call (321) 632-
2411.
Beachside Toys is a "non-mass market
toy store," said employee Linda Holler.
"We have erector sets and chemistry
sets, Thomas the Train, microscopes and
telescopes," she said.
The shop has musical instruments and
learning toys for young children, she said.
For older children, Webkins are a good
choice, Ms. Holler said.
The virtual pet builds responsibility
because "parents" are monitored through
the Internet and have to account for the
care of their "child."

Bayside Lakes offers


more than meets the eye

Strip malls often house hidden treasures


BY DANIKA FEODOROFF
Staff writer
PALM BAY-The businesses of Bayside
Lakes offer more than just convenient
banking and grocery shopping on your
way home.
Unique eateries, practical necessities,
pampering and unusual gifts await those
who take a few extra minutes to explore.
Publix gives the area a reliable grocery
shopping experience with a full deli,
bakery and large wine selection. You'll
find numerous banking, real estate and
financial services along with franchise
favorites that provide quick dining
options.
Don't rush home after picking up that
loaf of bread, though. Take a moment to
stroll the retail and food offerings on both
sides of Bayside Lakes Boulevard and start
your holiday gift search for some interest-
ing finds.
Try out a new holiday hairdo at either
Fantastic Sam's or the Hair Cuttery next to
Publix. Consider more pamperingwith a
relaxing manicure, pedicure and more at


either Pretty Nails or Top Nails. Gift
certificates from any of these salons will
make a great stocking stuffer.
Golf lessons make a great gift or person-
al treat at $20 an hour at The Majors Golf
Club. The Majors is a par-72, 18-hole
Arnold Palmer signature golf course with
more than 240 acres of greens, lakes and
trees.
If you are looking for a nice evening out,
a luncheon locale, a business meeting
venue or even banquet facilities don't
overlook the club's restaurant, Signatures
at the Majors, that overlooks the golf
course through panoramic windows. The
green leather chairs, green carpet and
dark woods create an inviting atmosphere
post-golf, mid-week or for a special
occasion.
"We offer a lot more than your typical
golf course club house, at much better
prices," said Mike Brochu, assistant
manager. "Friday night is white linen
dining that is by reservation only."
Choose indoor or outdoor dining, or
choose a seat at the full bar. Lunch prices
range from 2.95 to $8.95; entrees for early

bird dining, 4-7 p.m., Monday through
Thursday, is $8.95; and dinner is less than
$20 per entrde.
If you are looking for some inspiration in
planning meals for a large group or an
intimate couple, visit Ginger Stephens at
Home Aide Dinners for a different
concept in cooking.


"You get to be Rachael Ray," said Mrs.
Stephens, who personally creates the
recipes used at her store.
"The recipes are healthy. There is no
trans-fat, and we can work around dietary
needs," she said.

The store is set up like a gourmet kitchen
with easy to read recipes at each prep
station. The Home Aide team does the
prep work and the clean up they provide
the food, recipes, which change monthly
and aprons.
Customers assemble the meals and can
make up to 12 entrees in two hours -just
don an apron and let your inner chef shine.
The "Dinners for Two" allows cooks to
create five meals for two to three people for
$64, whereas the "Big Family Pack"
includes eight meals for six people for
$154.
"I love to feed people," said Mrs.
Stephens.
That love comes through in the careful
attention to detail in the store layout,
design, concept and recipes.

Gift wrap a game of golf for someone this season


Storefronts, online retailers offer plenty


BY ROB SHELBURNE
Sports writer
It's a great time to be a golfer.
Not only do we get to be eyewitness to
the phenomenon of Tiger Woods, but the
ways and means of improving our game
are more accessible and diverse than
ever.
Ask any golfer what they want for
Christmas, and they are likely to tell you
"two-shots a side," or "30 more yards off
the tee."
Golfers are likely the easiest type of
person for which to buy gifts.
A golfer will always welcome a dozen
new balls, a private lesson or a compli-
mentary round of golf. And there is no
shortage of outlets where one can find
the perfect gift for the golfer in the house.
The landscape, cyber and terrestrial, is
littered with warehouses and specialty
shops hawking everything from clubs to
gloves to exploding golf balls. New
storefronts are opening up constantly
offering the latest in equipment, custom
club fitting, repair and building.
Dick's Sporting Goods at the Melbourne
Square Mall houses a fully stocked pro
shop that carries the hottest new drivers,


hybrid clubs and putters available today,
as well as every kind of golf ball and shoe
imaginable.
Golf USA onWickham Road in Suntree
offers hands-on instruction with a staff of
certified teaching professionals and
experienced golf retailers to help design a
game that fits you to a tee.
The U.S. 1 Golf Center on U.S. 1 in
Rockledge, owned and operated for 20
years by decorated teaching professional
MikeWarobick, is a one-stop shop for
customized clubs and instruction.
The U.S. 1 Golf Center also runs its own
junior golf tour for golfers ages 7-17, and
its adult amateur tour was the genesis for
the Space Coast Golf Channel Amateur
Tour.
One of the new golf stores in the area is
GOLF ETC.
The brother/sister duo of Kip Wright
and BethWall opened their 3,000-square-
foot store at 765 N. Wickham Road, Suite
103, Melbourne, in March 2007.
"Kip is a 40-year golfer and has a great
passion for the game," Ms. Hall said. "He's
an excellent instructor and I'm a duffer.
What better way to get better than to
open a golf store?"

GOLF ETC, located at 765 N. Wickham Road, Melbourne, is just one of many
places to shop locally for the latest in golf equipment and accessories.


golfing siblings at GOLF ETC. offer
everything the conspicuous linkster on
your list could want.
. "We have all kinds of accessories, gift
certificates, head covers and a full line of
men's and women's clothing." Ms. Hall
said. "We're a real soup-to-nuts store."
Balls, hats, gloves and top-line clubs
notwithstanding, Ms. Wall said the most
valuable gift one could get a golfer is a
professional analysis of the equipment


already in the bag.
For $50, GOLF ETC. will do a bag
analysis that checks the loft, lie and
balance of each club in the bag; a process
they say will shave four to eight strokes
off your game
"It's like the tires on your car," Ms. Wall
said. "If they aren't balanced, you're
gonna be all over the road."

One-of-a-kind jewelry not too hard to find


Hometown jewelers
Slhow creative side
3Y KAREN BRAYNARD
taff writer

Shoppers looking for trendy, unique
piecess of jewelry can find what they're
,oking for in smaller, local boutiques or
galleries.
The larger "chain store" jewelers often
uy in bulk and their jewelry is sold in
.ores throughout the country. Local
,:welers handcraft their pieces individu-
fly, creating unique and distinct designs.
Lydia Meyer, sales manager at Palm Bay
,'welers, said that she sees multi-colored
apphires as a popular stone.
"People walk in here not knowing what
iey want and often see the sapphires
nd decide that's exactly what they're
Smoking for," she said.
Ms. Meyer predicts pearls will be hot
iis year.
"A popular trend for diamonds are the
)urney and circle of life diamond
.ecklaces. They are romantic pieces and
-lake cherished gifts," said Ms. Meyer.
At Fifth Avenue Jewelers in Indialantic,
,uis Angel Magafia, 55, turns rocks into
,ems. Mr. Magafia is a gem cutter, a
-oldsmith and a silversmith.


"We consider ourselves a hometown
jeweler," said his wife and business co-
owner Vicki Levy-Magafia.
Ms. Magafia said the store provides a
wide range of services and products,
from helping customers create exqui-
site jewelry to replacing watch batter-
ies.
"We like to educate our customers as
well. We can help them learn the

years, but yellow

this year. That's
Photo by Karen what a lot of
Braynard people will be
asking for," said
Ms. Magafia.
Synthetic Moissanite, a diamond-like
mineral, is another gem that Ms. Magafia
believes will be popular this holiday
season.
"Moissanite comes from the stars. It's
found in a meteorite crater," said Ms.
Magafia.
Moissanite is second in hardness only
to the diamond. Moissanite is a rare
mineral, so most jewelry is made from


synthetic moissanite.
Waterfire Studio Artisan Jewelers in
Satellite Beach is another jewelry shop
that caters to the tastes of those looking
for something unique.
Owners David Baldaia, 59, and Arelene
Baldaia, 60, say they've found their niche
in Satellite Beach. Much of the art and
jewelry in their shop reflects the coastal
culture.
Their shop features very local artists.
Ms. Baldaia handcrafts many of the
earrings and necklaces on display, while
Mr. Baldaia forges precious metals and is
a certified gemologist.
"One of the popular trends in jewelry is
precious metal clay," said Ms. Baldaia.
Her daughter, Alyssa Drake, 33, is
certified in precious metal clay design.
Using this medium, Ms. Drake uses
clay, laden with microns of silver, to form
a desired shape for her jewelry pieces.
The clay is fired at temperatures hot
enough to melt away the clay yet allows
the silver to hold the shape.
"It's an amazing medium. It was
developed in Japan about 12 years ago
and it is becoming a popular choice,"
said Ms. Baldaia.
She said that this year's jewelry trends
lean toward a lot of color. Synthetic gems
are popular right now, as the centerpiece

Perfect time to travel

Special deals available during holiday season


BY DANIKA FEODOROFF
Staff writer
Thanksgiving officially marks the
beginning of the holiday shopping season.
If trees, decorations and gift-wrapping
seem daunting,.think outside the (gift-
wrapped) box and give yourself, or those
you love, a gift that will last a lifetime the
gift of travel.
During this time of year, most people are
gearing up for the holidays and vacation
travel is the last thing on their minds.
However, the time between Thanksgiving
and NewYear's offers discounts and
bargains for those looking to travel.
"I always suggest thatpeople consider
traveling now because prices are lower and
destinations are less crowded," said Pia
Hanlon-Olsen, owner of Beyond & Back
Travel, 401 OceanAve., Unit 101, Mel-
bourne Beach.
Mrs. Hanlon-Olsen said that she has seen
an increase in travel during the holidays
because people want to avoid the tradi-
tional shopping stresses.
"It is becoming very popular to do a
themed trip or travel for Christmas instead
of giving gifts," said Mrs. Hanlon-Olsen.
"People are thinking: Let's spend time


Daa mmd (WMo


together for a week."
"It is more relaxing and more enjoyable."
One of the best values for families looking
to travel this holiday season is the ocean
cruise.
"Cruising is one of the best deals out
there because it is all-inclusive," said Patty
Toppa, sales and marketing director for
Gadabout Travel in Palm Bay and Mel-
bourne. "The mega-ships are all coming
back from long cruises. Closer to spring,
prices will go up again."
"There are some great drive and cruise
deals from $99 per night that include
breakfast," said Mrs. Toppa.
"Places within driving distance such as
Amelia Island, St Augustine and the Keys
offer great discounts before Christmas,"
she said.
If you are just looking for a hotel room,
Mrs. Toppa suggests looking into some of
the larger hotels with convention centers
that offer discounts during the holidays
when business traffic slows down.
Of course, cruising isn't the only travel
opportunity available.

Pamper your pet this holiday


BY TONY JUDNICH
Staff writer


Delectable treats or a new hairdo
might be just what your pet is hoping to
receive for Christmas or any other
holiday.
Such items and services are available
at The Grooming Shop in Rockledge
and Cashmere Pet Salon and Spa in
Melbourne.
"We sell just about anything for your
dog: dog toys, bowls, collars," said
Nancy Maxwell, owner of The Groom-
ing Shop. "We have items for cats too,
and we groom all breeds of cats and
dogs."
Mrs. Maxwell, who has 25 years of
dog-grooming experience, opened her
pet boutique six months ago.
"I was trained by a three-time world
champion groomer," she said.
Dogs and cats can be groomed at the
shop or, thanks to the store's mobile
business, at a customer's residence. Pet
supplies can be delivered through the
mobile unit, Mrs. Maxwell said.
Supplies at the store include all-
holistic shampoo, flea control, vitamins
and supplements. For the holiday
season, the store will stock special gift
baskets that will include items such as


'We sell just about anything
for your dog: dog toys, bowls,
collars. We have items for cats
too, and we groom all breeds
of cats and dogs.'
Nancy Maxwell,
The Grooming Shop

toys, treats and a collar or a leash.
The Grooming Shop also offers short-
term pet sitting services. Store hours
are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through
Saturday.
The shop is at 4657 S. U.S. 1, suite D
in the Peddlers Village, Rockledge. For
information, call (321) 636-7453.
All breeds of cats and dogs also are
welcome at Cashmere Pet Salon and
Spa in downtown Melbourne.
"We offer regular grooming services
along with spa treatments, such as hot
oil, strawberry milk baths, and special
shampoos for certain medical condi-
tions," said Terry Buckland, who co-
owns the spa with her husband, Ken
Buckland.
Mrs. Buckland has more than 35 years


of pet grooming experience and has
taught pet grooming for seven years.
Cashmere Pet Salon and Spa opened
at 520 E. New Haven last February. Mrs.
Buckland said it is different from other
pet spas in that its staff hand-dries the
pets it cares for, instead of having the
animals dry off in a cage.
"We fluff dry them on the grooming
table," Mrs. Buckland said. "That
ensures a better finish."
The business sells several specialty
spa products, such as Les Pooch
shampoo and conditioner, as well as
all-natural dog cookies.
Mrs. Buckland said she and her
husband plan to open the Cashmere
Academy of Pet Grooming at the store
next March. It will offer programs for
people interested in becoming profes-
sional pet groomers or assistants, and
courses for existing groomers to
improve their skills.
The spa is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Tuesday through Saturday. For infor-
mation, call (321) 984-5166 or send an
e-mail to cashmerepetsalon@bell-

Surf shops get on board


with holiday gift ideas __


BY TAMMY ROBERTS
Staff writer
When they're not in school, they're most
likely at the beach. So, this holiday season,
why not give your child or grandchild
something you know will keep them on
their toes?
Claiming the longest contiguous
coastline in Florida, Brevard County is
known for its surfing community and the
shops that cater to its needs.
From Cape Canaveral to Melbourne
Beach, surfing venues are starting to
display their winter lines and are exhibit-
ing a wide variety of products perfect for
holiday gift-giving.
This year's most popular brands are
Billabong, Quicksilver, Roxy, Volcom, Lucy
Love, Truth and Hurley.
Aside from the world-renowned tourist
and surfing attraction Ron Jon Surf Shop,
Cocoa Beach boasts an array of custom-
made surfing establishments.

offers everything from clothing, shoes and
sunglasses to used surfboards and hand-
built Quiet Flight boards.
The store just received a new shipment


ofjackets, hoodies and sweatshirts for
both guys and girls and a new selection of
sandals, such as the Reef Dram Bobby
Martinez men's sandal.
"Watches are another item that always
make for a great gift," said Quiet Flight
retailer John Cangianella. "Sunglasses,
too. Our most popular brand of sunglass,
es is probablyVon Zipper."
As the temperature slowly decreases,
most surf shops throughout the county
are also displaying a variety of wetsuits in
all sizes, colors and styles.
"This season, Quicksilver, Billabong and
O'Neil have been our top three brands for
wetsuits," Mr. Cangianella said.

1973, also sells more than 400 types of
Quiet Flight surfboards, which are all
handmade in a factory in Cape Canaveral,

Find gifts for people who have everything'


BY LISA M. ONORATO
Entertainment writer
In the competitive world of gifting,
it's hard to break out from the crowd.
Bfit with a little imagination and
attention to detail, the perfect gift is
just around the corner.
If you're shopping for a beer and
wine enthusiast, consider visiting The
Flying Corkscrew in downtown
Melbourne, where even the most
discerning thirst can be quenched.
"We like to think we have gifts for
the people who have everything, the
people who are hard to buy for," said
owner Ken Mageau.
Shoppers have their choice of more
than 120 ales, pilsners, stouts, porters
and Belgian fruit beers and more than
200 wines. Mr. Mageau said the most
popular choices for beer lovers are
the seasonal beers.
"We have seasonal beers that are
generally not found elsewhere," he
said. Popular choices include Santa's
Private Ale, Winter Storm and the
limited edition Sierra Nevada Cele-
bration Ale.
"We cater to those people who want
unusual beer," Mr. Mageau.
Other holiday options include


standard gift baskets for the wine and
beer drinker. Baskets can also be
customized, said Mr. Mageau. "People
can even handpick their own six
packs," he said. "We expect the gift
baskets to be very popular this year."
The Flying Corkscrew even has the
gadget-lover covered.
"We have a cooler that you wrap
around wine that will cool it in 10
minutes," Mr. Mageau said.
The store also stocks and air cork
popper, which offers a struggle-free
way to open a bottle of wine by way of
a needle through the cork that shoots
air into the bottle and pops the cork
out. The Flying Corkscrew offers
shipping to most states.
If your to-buy list includes someone
who "has everything," try a gift
certificate to your favorite salon.
Wild Rootz features a variety of
choices from services to products.
"We're a Paul Mitchell focus salon,
so we carry a full supply of products,"
said Tina Tyson, owner.
She said her salon offers an array of
travel-size products perfect for gift
baskets.
The salon also offers gift certificates
for everything from hair color to facial
waxing. Ms. Tyson said they're the


perfect gift for someone who enjoys
pampering.
"Even before I opened a salon, my
fiance always gave me gift certifi-
cates," she said. "It was two hours of
nothing but me, and I loved it.
"We have a laid-back atmosphere
and serve wine and herbal teas. We
always say 'Come in and enjoy a Wild
Rootz experience.'"
Know someone who speaks dreami-
ly about a particular instrument?
Consider gifting music lessons.
Marion Music offers four lessons for
$70 per month.
"We have 20 instructors," said owner
Bruce Marion. "If I don't have a
teacher for a particular instrument, I
can locate one." He said his business
sees a large influx of new students
each holiday season and that lessons
are suitable for ages 5-95.
For the coin collector on your list,
Ideal Coins in Titusville stocks type
and modern coins.
Employee Leroy Hayes said the hot
item this year is the Sacagawea
dollars.
Other gift ideas for those hard to
buy for include gift certificates for
yoga classes at The Yoga Center in
Melbourne.


"That's one of the nicest gifts you
can give a loved one to make them
feel mellow or energized. Yoga is good
for both," said owner Linda Norse.
In preparation for the holidays, the
center is offering 20 percent off its
retail items through November,
including yoga accessories and
figurines.
In December, the center will offer a
10-percent discount on class cards,
available in groups of five, 10 or 25.
The Yoga Center offers a variety of
yoga, from gentle through classes
geared toward the experienced
practitioner, said Mrs. Norse.

skateboard sets.
But perhaps one of the newest
clothing trends for girls is the Hurley
Break Up Make Up hoodie. Each one
comes in a different pattern and has
a zipper down the front and the back
of the sweatshirt.
It's designed so that girls can mix-
and-match with one another to
create a different look each time, Ms.
Velardi said.
Ifyou're looking to steer clear of
the trendy brands and are in search
of an authentic surfing selection,
Balsa Bill in Satellite Beach is your
answer.
The cozy shop only carries Balsa
Bill products, which are made locally
or are brought back by its owner
from areas of Hawaii.
The shop's most popular gift items
are its Kuhkui necklaces and
bracelets, Hawaiian hand-carved
fishhook necklaces, Tahiti-inspired
purses and Balsa Bill aloha shirts.
New to the venue is a display of
sterling silver jewelry, hand-picked
by the owner's wife from the South
Sea Islands.
The shop also designs custom-
made Balsa Bill surfboards and has a
unique collection of ukuleles.
The Goods Surf & Skate in Indi-
alantic offers a great selection of


surf-ware, but a more out-of-the-
boxstyle.
"We try to be a little more edgier, a
little less trendier," said Sandra
Ciriello, women's clothing buyer for
The Goods.
On the women's side, the Goods
displays several racks of dresses,
sweaters and jackets, as well as an
entire wall ofjeans.
"We offer a lot of jeans that are
difficult to find anywhere else," Ms.
Ciriello said. "Our most popular
brands are AG, Citizen, Ella Moss
and Velvet"
On the guy's side, Truth, Hurley
and Jedidiah T-shirts.and hoodies
are the most popular during the
holiday season.
"We just got in a whole new
shipment of men's and women's
wallets as well," Ms. Ciriello said.
"They make great gifts."
The Goods is one of the few
Brevard County stores to offer a
baby and children's clothing line.
From shoes and dresses to jackets
and backpacks, the shop is prepared
to send the little ones out in style.
As long as Brevard remains a
legendary beach town, surf shop
products found in any part of the
county will always make for great
holiday gifts.

"Peridot, an olive green
stone, is popular and less
expensive than green
tourmaline. Another
popular gemstone is the
amethyst, which is purple.
Both are often worn in
necklaces, earrings,
pendants and bracelets,"
said Ms. Baldaia.
Stephen Lumpkin, 42,
owner of Stephen's Jewelers
in Titusville, said nothing
beats a pair of diamond
stud earrings for a holiday
gift.
"That is always the most
popular gift we sell," he said.
Other trends he predicts
are the radiated topaz
stones.
"Heat is used to make the
colors more brilliant than
before. The stones come in
different shades such as
twilight blues and mystic
reds and purples," said Mr.
Lumpkin.

Golf
From page 11
GOLF ETC. uses the latest in digital
technology to measure and monitor
the distance and accuracy of all shots
with every club in their fitting room,
which is like an indoor driving range.
Senior club fitter Gary Callahan will
apply the information gathered from
the digital analyzer and tweak the
clubs on site.
"Sure, people can order clubs
online," Ms. Wall said. "But you can't
touch them or feel them in your
hands before you pay for them.
Chances are they aren't going to be
custom fit, and you are eventually
going to have to get them adjusted.
We can do all that right here and
there's no extra shipping charge."
Once the fitting has been complet-
ed, and the golfer dressed for the tee,
the next step is fine-tuning the swing.
GOLF ETC. has two certified golf
instructors on its staff to help your
golfer fix that pesky slice and straight-
en out the duck in their hook at a cost
competitive with a local club pro or
golf academy.

travel agent will save you time, experts said.
"We have been a constant in Melbourne
Beach for 25 years," said Hanlon-Olsen. "We
find that people still like the personalized
service we give."
"While travel agents do typically charge a
$25 to $50 service charge to book afflight,
other services will not cost clients," said Mrs.
Toppa. "It doesn't cost anymore to use a
travel agent Instead of getting $100 off the
price of a trip, I would rather see clients get
$100 worth of travel insurance."
For a mini-vacation in a delightful destination
that is close by, support alocally-ownedbed

"People tell us they feel like they are in
Bermuda," said Beth Fisher, innkeeper of the

inn as their private beach-house," said Mrs.
Fisher. "They drive their cars here and leave
them parked the whole weekend."

two two-bedroom suites and boasts private
beach access. Their beachfront pergola offers
