West Melbourne ponders water plant


Consultant presents concept of 3 million gallon-per-day facility


BY GRETCHEN SAUERMAN
Staff writer
WEST MELBOURNE Tired of
ongoing water supply disputes with
Melbourne, City Council members
took one step closer to developing
their own water supply and treat-
ment plant.


During the Dec. 18 meeting, Veo-
lia Water North America-South vice
president Jeffrey Kowal presented
the results of a preliminary feasibil-
ity study for the council's consider-
ation.
"In summary, we think it is feasi-
ble (to create a new water supply
system)," said Mr. Kowal. "We think


the time frame is feasible, and we
think the cost is comparable (to
what residents now pay for Mel-
bourne's water)."
Although council members were
eager to get away from relying on
Melbourne for water, they
expressed concern with the esti-
mated price for the plant, conserv-


actively estimated at $33 million.
Despite the high potential cost,
residents might not pay much more
for water and could possibly pay
even less than they are now, Mr.
Kowal said.
Grant money and other cost sav-
ings measures could drop the total
project cost to as low as $23 million,

2007 -

New faces, new places
made the news this year
BY GRETCHEN SAUERMAN
Staff writer

Looking back on 2007, new and familiar
names were among the year's biggest
newsmakers.
Some happenings drew praise from the
community, while others received harsh
criticism.
Conflicts between Melbourne and West
Melbourne continued to dominate the
news, as did conflicts among the two
cities' leaders.
Two of the city's biggest institutions,
Melbourne International Airport and the
Florida Institute of Technology, made
headlines throughout the year.
10. Melbourne, West Melbourne
approve multiple commercial and resi-
dential developments
Despite the downturn in the real estate
.markets, developers continued to request
approval for major construction projects.
Some projects, like the Lofts at Waverly,
a 120-foot high mixed-use project in
downtown Melbourne, have seen con-
struction paces slowed to better time com-
pletion dates with a market upturn.
Others, like Hammock Landings, a
750,000-square-foot shopping center at
the intersection of Palm Bay Road and
Interstate 95, are rapidly moving forward.
The city of Melbourne also approved
plans to create a special taxing district for
the 1,448-home Mayfair development
near the intersection of Babcock Street


The Year in Review


and Eber Boulevard.
9. The Florida Institute of Technology
kicks off its most ambitious fundraiser
ever and experiences construction boom
The school began its 50th anniversary
celebration by setting a goal to raise $50
million by next year. So far, more than $33"
million has been pledged to Florida Tech.
Clearly in a growth mode, Florida Tech
has initiated construction projects totaling
more than $75 million.
The South Village will be the new center-
piece, featuring three residence halls, a
dining hall and a pool and diving well. An
autism research center and a new parking
deck are also in the works.
8. West Melbourne City Council mem-
ber Duke Salberg, a tireless advocate of
protecting the city's water supplies, died
April 19
He was remembered by hundreds of
friends, family members and admirers
during a ceremony at Calvary Chapel in
West Melbourne.
Six months after his death, city leaders
honored Mr. Salberg by planting a tree in
his memory at Crossroads Park.
7. Melbourne breaks ground on new
$8.67 million, 58,000-square-foot city hall
Employees in the city's building division,
engineering department, and personnel
division temporarily relocated to the for-
mer K-mart at the corner of Apollo Boule-
vard and Sarno Road -o that the city annex
buildings could be torn iionvn to make way
for the new city hall.
When the new city hall is completed
next year, the old facility will be torn down,

Brevard County found itself in national news


STAFF REPORT
Brevard County residents and
lawmakers faced a wide. range of
issues this year many of which
made national news.
From an increase in pet over-
population and a plummet in the
real estate market to property tax
issues and political scandal, 2007
was anything but dull.
Here are Brevard County's top 10
news stories of 2007 as reported by
Hometown News.
10. Residents see little tax relief
While Brevard County officials
cut more than $12 million from the
fiscal 2008 county budget, some
residents blamed county commis-


sioners for not doing more to
decrease taxes. Scott Ellis, the
county Clerk of Courts, who over-
sees the commission, said nothing
had been truly cut, just shifted
around. "There are no tax breaks if
there are no tax cuts," he said. In a
report he wrote before the final
budget was approved, Mr. Ellis
said the county "has flattened rev-
enue at last year's enormous house
bubble windfall level, and small
individual reductions this year
come from new taxpayers sharing
the bill (almost $10 million in new
construction) and certain property
having (its) taxable value

tional Airport encounters
successes and set-backs
The Airport Authority had
an up and down year, scor-
ing a hit when they landed
nonstop service between
Melbourne and Baltimore-
Washington International
Airport. The one-way fares
are as low as $79 each way
on USA 3000 Airlines.
The airport also approved
plans to construct a golf
course, an executive hotel
and an extended care hospi-
tal on airport property.
After lengthy negotiations
with a German tour opera-
tor, M-Touristik, plans for
nonstop service between
Melbourne and Berlin
appeared to be set.
After sluggish ticket sales
and delays in getting U.S.
Customs officials to staff the
Melbourne International
Airport during arrivals and
departures, M-Touristik
backed out of the deal for
the 2007-08 tourist season.
The Airport Authority is
hopeful that the deal can be
rekindled next season, said
airport spokeswoman Lori
Booker.

agency meeting about irregu-
larities in the school's
finances. Judge Silverman
resigned after the two
remaining board members,
Greg Gaddis and Patty Sat-
terwhite, did not support his
motion to fire the Maers.
Brevard Public Schools
superintendent Richard
Dipatri recommended that
the board not renew the
school's charter when it
expired in May.
5. Melbourne City Coun-
cil members clash on
administrative and proce-
dural issues
Citing a need for better
communication and new
ideas, council member
Joanne Corby asked the
council to consider dis-
missal of city manager Jack
Schluckebier last May.
The rest of the council dis-
agreed, instead choosing to
give their manager a vote of
confidence.
Months later, council
members Richard Contreras
and Ms. Corby clashed over
individual responses to resi-
dents opposed to the pro-
posed Parkway Place low-
income housing project

near Wickham Park.
After Ms. Corby attended
a meeting arranged by the
area's homeowner's associa-
tions, Mr. Contreras, who
lives in the district, pro-
posed that the council
members refrain from tak-
ing the lead on issues out-
side of their district.
Although the council
approved Mr. Contreras'
proposal 6-1, they later
decided to revisit the matter
in January 2008.
4. Tucker Heights early-
morning explosion kills two
and destroys apartment
complex
A 3 a.m. explosion on
April 11 is believed to have
been caused by a natural
gas-powered clothes dryer
that was illegally removed
from an adjacent apart-
ment, said then-public
information specialist for
Melbourne Police Depart-
ment, Jill Frederiksen.
Killed were father and
daughter Joshua Leigh Jack-
son, 18, and Ja'Miya Jackson,
8 months.
The neighborhood was
evacuated and the 10-unit
apartment complex was
later razed because the
damage was so severe.
The investigation contin-
ues, said Melbourne Police
Department Cmdr. Ron Bell.
3. West Melbourne City
Council members clash
over sexual harassment
allegations and Sunshine
Law violations


Less than a month after
the City Council appointed
Charles Settgast to Duke
Salberg's seat, then-Mayor
Shirley Bradshaw called for
his resignation.
The call for his ouster
came after then-acting city
attorney Jim Stokes drafted
a letter informing Mr.
Settgast that employees had
complained about his
behavior prior to his being
appointed to the City Coun-
cil.
Ms. Bradshaw organized
an anti-harassment demon-
stration with roughly a
dozen participants at the
intersection near City Hall
on June 8.
The council later criti-
cized the way Mr. Stokes and
city manager David Reynal
handled the matter, saying
the council was not notified
of the concerns in a timely
manner.
Mr. Settgast resigned Sept.
20, a day after a second alle-
gation of harassment sur-
faced.
Mr. Settgast said he
believed he was targeted
because of his vocal criti-
cism of the city's handling of
issues relating to planning
and zoning and the process
of hiring of Mr. Stokes as the
city's full-time attorney,
which he believes violated
the state's Sunshine Law.
Mr. Stokes resigned Oct. 4,
citing comments from
council members, including
one that his contract was
"unfair," and two others that
his appointment was a "mis-
take," and questions asked
during the Oct. 2 council
meeting as some of the
motivation behind his deci-
sion.
In an apparent effort to
change the leadership of the
council, voters ousted then-
Mayor Shirley Bradshaw
and council members Vir-
ginia Blanchard and Jan
Lieson. Ms. Bradshaw and
Ms. Blanchard had been
some of Mr. Settgast's harsh-
est critics.
2. Drug-related double
murder-suicide rocks quiet
northwest Melbourne
neighborhood
Police were called to the
quiet neighborhood at the
north end of Turtle Mound
Road when neighbors heard
gunshots on the morning of
Dec. 12. ,
Omar Garcia, 24, was
shot by Juan M. Torres, 49,
and died on the scene,
according to police reports.
Mr. Torres fled the area and
was found dead, along with
Elieser Alfonso, 36, at 4000
Lake Washington Road, in
an apparent murder-sui-


cide.
In the course of the inves-
tigation, police discovered
the trio were operating two
sophisticated marijuana
grow houses in the affluent
neighborhood.
Another pair, Alfredo Gar-
cia, 43, and Yunior Mar-
tines-Gonzalez, 28, were
arrested when evidence led
police to another grow
operation at their home the
next day.
1. Melbourne and West
Melbourne continue water
and land disputes
Hometown News pub-
lished nearly a dozen arti-
cles relating to the ongoing
debate over annexation and
water supply issues
between the two cities.
As the year began, the two
cities were pondering law-
suits to ask a judge to inter-
pret the decades-old water
contract between the two
cities.
By February, the councils
began discussing plans to
convene a joint-council
meeting to try to resolve
their differences.
Meanwhile, several proj-
ects, including a commer-
cial development near the
intersection of Interstate 95
and U.S. 192, a housing
complex west of 1-95 and a
Microtel hotel near the
intersection of U.S. 192 and
Hollywood Boulevard, were
delayed as the two cities
continued the debate.
A joint summit in July
promised kumbaya, but the
two special attorneys were
not able to reach a consen-
sus for more than three
months.
By November, the two
councils were finally able to
resolve issues delaying the
two developments near I-
95, but other developments
are still waiting for an over-
all solution to the problem.
Later that month, Mel-
bourne council member
John Thomas and West Mel-
bourne council member Bill
Mettrick drafted a joint let-
ter to their councils recom-
mending the cities scrap the
old contract and start nego-
tiating a new deal from
scratch.
Both cities approved the
plan, which sets specific
milestones toward resolu-
tion during the first half of
2008.
If the two cities are unable
to solve their disputes, the
court system may be the
next step.

FPL staff strengthens electric grid


Line inspections,
reliability efforts
to impact nearly
250,000 residents
BY GRETCHEN SAUERMAN
Staff writer

Florida Power & Light
employees are taking steps
to keep the electricity on
the next time a strong
windstorm lashes the
Space Coast.
In addition to routine
maintenance, the company
has ramped up efforts to
strengthen the electric grid
and look for potential
weaknesses, said Karen Vis-
sepo, FPL senior media
relations specialist.
"To put it in perspective,
we serve a total of 287,000
customers in Brevard," said
Ms. Vissepo. "The preven-
tative maintenance efforts
are having a positive
impact on most of the cus-
tomers we serve in the
area."
The process is part of a
system-wide program
designed to increase relia-
bility of power sources dur-
ing both storm and non-
storm conditions, said Ms.
Vissepo.
FPL has already rein-'
forced poles near critical
emergency service
providers, such as Holmes
Regional Medical Center
and Cape Canaveral Hospi-
tal hospitals, she said.
Nearly 25,000 pole
inspections were per-
formed last year in Brevard
County, impacting more
than 81,000 customers. -
Almost 850 main electri-
cal lines have been inspect-
ed and cleared of potential
hazards, impacting nearly
250,000 customers, Ms. Vis-
sepo said.
Excessive vegetation
growth near power lines
can jeopardize service if
branches touch or fall on
lines, she said.
"There is much more to
be done, but by the end of
the preventative cycles,
FPL customers should
enjoy a much stronger, reli-
able service," said Ms. Vis-
sepo. "That is our goal."
Spending time and

ty program.


money now to prevent
future outages pays off in
the long run, she said,
because emergency
restorations cost more and
revenue is lost when cus-
tomers' meters are not run-
ning due to a power outage.
FPL is using two new
technologies to increase
reliability.
Thermovison allows FPL
employees to use infrared
technology to scan over-
head powerlines to detect
faulty equipment that is
generating more heat than
normal.
The company also
installed automated feeder
switches that allow power
to be rerouted to other
lines when the primary
lines are compromised, she
said.
"All of these efforts com-
bined not only allow us to
identify conditions in need
of corrective steps at an
early stage, but also reduce,
and sometimes even avoid


outages from ever happen-
ing," said Al Alfonso, FPL
vice president for distribu-
tion, in a news release.
The salty air in beachside
communities poses unique
problems for electric utili-
ties, said Sandy Sanderson,
FPL area manager.
"We usually do preventa-
tive maintenance on a
more frequent basis," said
Mr. Sanderson.
The company uses a
small piece of land along
AlAjust north of the Sebas-
tian Inlet to test new equip-
ment to determine how
well it will withstand Bre-
vard's salty air, he said. The
spot was determined to be
the second most corrosive
area in the nation.
"We test all kinds of
things out there, like poles,
switches and transform-
ers," said Mr. Sanderson.
FPL's stepped-up reliabil-
ity program will come as
good news to local munici-
palities.


In the past year, Indialan-
tic, Melbourne, Melbourne
Village, Melbourne Beach,
Titusville and West Mel-
bourne have renewed.their
franchise agreements with
FPL, tying the cities to FPL
until 2037.
In the past two years,
Palm Bay, Rockledge, Satel-
lite Beach and unincorpo-
rated Brevard County have
also signed 30-year agree-
ments with FPL.
Cape Canaveral, Cocoa,
Cocoa Beach and Malabar
are slated to renew their
contracts no later than
2011.
"The preventative main-
tenance measures we are
taking today will allow for a
stronger system tomor-
row," said Mr. Alfonso.

WEEK IN

REVIEW

West Melbourne short-lists
potential city attorneys
WEST MELBOURNE The City Council moved closer to
hiring a permanent, full-time attorney to represent the city
last week.
During the Dec. 18 meeting, council members selected
four finalists from a pool of applicants for the post.
Among the finalists is the city's current acting attorney,
Terri Jones. Ms. Jones is a former assistant attorney for Bre-
vard County. Five council members voted to invite Ms.
Jones to the final interview.
Two other attorneys, William Buztrey and Douglas Wyck-
off, received votes from all seven council members.
Mr. Buztrey, an assistant city attorney for Cape Coral, is
also a former Hemando County assistant attorney.
Mr. Wyckoff, who lives in DuFuniak Springs, is a former
city attorney for Sanibel. He has represented other munici-
palities in private practice as well.'
The fourth finalist, Anthony Leggio, received four votes to
be invited to the final interview. He is an interim city attor-
ney for the city of Fernandina Beach.
The council will interview the candidates during a spe-
cial meeting at City Hall, 9 a.m., Jan 12.

United Way surpasses goal
United Way of Brevard's 50th anniversary campaign
raised almost $6.5 million.
The total marks a 5.8 percent increase over last year's
amount, officials said in a news release.
Brevard County Sheriff and United Way's 2007 Campaign.
Chairman Jack Parker announced the campaign total at a
campaign celebration at the Hilton Melbourne Rialto
Place.
"I'm so proud of the work we've done together in achiev-
ing this total," Sheriff Parker said at the event. "What mat-
ters most for me is that, in the end, we will reach thousands
of people in need of a helping hand up in the coming year."
United Way honored individuals, as well as representa-
tives from more than 75 companies and organizations, for
their achievements. Sixteen organizations saw increases
greater than 10 percent in employee giving, according to a
news release.
Harris Corp. became the first entity in United Way of Bre-
vard's history to surpass the $1 million mark by raising
$1,165,846 in employee, retiree and corporate giving. The
total was a 17 percent increase over the company's 2006
contribution.
Harris has traditionally provided a barbecue for its
employees to say thanks for achieving its United Way goal.
This year, under the leadership of Cindy Kane, Lisa Stigall,
Judy Rosner and Howard Lance, the company decided to
do things differently with a "Feed Others" incentive pro-
gram, according to the news release.
The company will provide a year's worth of special
"Meals on Wheels" deliveries for homebound seniors;
breakfast, lunch and snacks for children in the Child Care
Association's Head Start Program; and all the food needed
for the women and children served by Serene Harbor's
domestic violence shelter program.
"We're grateful to Sheriff Parker and all of the volunteers
who led this campaign effort, and of course, to all of the
people who generously gave to help others," United Way of
Brevard president Rob Rains said in the news release.

safety certification course.
The officers in attendance
were trained on safety tech-
niques for dismantling
meth labs. The Brevard
County Sheriff's Office was
recognized as the state
leader in methampheta-
mine enforcement activi-
ties in the past three years,
after locating and disman-
tling more than 70 meth
labs in the county since
2005. More than 20 of those
occurred in 2007.
7. Local real estate sales
continued to decline, cre-
ating a buyer's market
* Brevard County saw an
increase in housing inven-
tory with more than 7,000
homes on the market.
That's an inventory level
that could take years to
consume, said Bob Will-
marth, president of the
Melbourne Area Associa-
tion. of Realtors.
Lenders continued to
tighten requirements for
borrowers because of grow-,
ing-foreclosures. More than
400 foreclosure applica-
tions were submitted dur-
ing the month of October in


Brevard County. Buyers,
sellers and lenders contin-
ue to watch the impact, if
any, from property tax and
homeowners insurance
reforms proposed at the
state level.
6. County looks for ways
to solve pet overpopula-
tion. As the problem of pet
overpopulation swept
across the nation this past
decade, its impact was felt
even in Brevard County.
The Humane Society of
the United States Web site
stated that an average of 7
million homeless pets enter
the nation's 4-6 million
public and private animal
shelters each year. Local
shelters, pet adoption
agencies and animal clinics
kicked their workload into
high gear in 2007 to ensure
those numbers stayed
down.
5. County votes to pur-
chase, protect last piece of
Thousand Islands
After months of cam-
paigning, the city of Cocoa
Beach applauded the final
decision by the Brevard
County. Board of County
Commissioners Oct. 23 to
purchase a $3.2 million,
,275-acre portion of the-
Thousand Islands through
the county's Environmen-
tally Endangered Lands
program.
4. Orion gap could hurt
Space Coast


The space shuttle pro-
gram is scheduled to end in
2010. The first launch of the
Orion spacecraft, designed
to carry men to the moon
and Mars, is planned in
2014. Brevard County offi-
cials are working on plans
to preserve high-tech jobs
during that four-year inter-
val. U.S. Rep. Dave Weldon
wants to close the gap by
extending the shuttle pro-
gram and moving the first
Orion launch to an earlier
date. The space program
put almost $1.5 billion into
Brevard County's economy
in fiscal year 2005, accord-
ing to NASA reports.
3. County records 10th
ocean drowning
Ten drownings occurred
on the county's beaches
'this year, making it the
highest number of drown-
ings the area has ever seen.
All of the recorded drown-
ings, however, took place in
unguarded areas. Experts
sited the high number to
the heavy rip currents that
swept over the Space Coast
in 2007. The effects
prompted residents and
lawmakers to search for a
solution to increase the
county's lifeguard staff,
allowing more of the coun-
ty's 50-mile beach to be
monitored.
2. NASA astronaut faces
slew of charges
Residents of the Space


Coast and beyond were
taken by surprise last Feb-
ruary when NASA Astro-
naut Lisa Marie Nowak was
faced with charges of bat-
tery, attempted kidnapping
and attempted murder
against Air Force Capt.
Colleen Shipman. Prior to
Ms. Nowak's arrest,, not a
single active astronaut had
been brought up on felony
charges, according to the
space program.
Ms. Nowak was released
on bail and is currently
awaiting trial.
1. State representative
convicted, resigns
State Rep. Bob Allen, R-
Merritt Island, was convict-
ed Nov. 9 of soliciting a
male police officer for pros-
titution. Rep. Allen was
arrested July 11 after offi-
cers working an unrelated
undercover operation
noticed him acting suspi-
ciously near the restroom at
Space View Park in down-
town Titusville. He followed
an officer into the restroom
and agreed to pay $20 for
oral sex, according to police
reports. Rep. Allen resigned
his seat in the Florida
House of Representatives
Nov. 16, one day after he
was sentenced to six
months probation and a
$250 fine. His resignation
will be effective Feb. 15 or
when a replacement is
elected.

he said.
The plant would have the
capacity to provide as much
as 3 million gallons per day,
said Mr. Kowal. The rate
customers would pay for a
gallon of water would be
based on the demand.
If the city only uses 1.5
million gallons per day, the
cost per thousand gallons
would be between $4.21-
$5.21.
If the city uses 3 million
gallons per day, the cost
could drop as low as $2.80
per thousand gallons. Cur-
rently West Melbourne resi-
dents pay $3.44 per thou-
sand gallons to purchase
water from Melbourne.
"Projecting water
demands is not an exact sci-
ence," said Mr. Kowal.
He estimated that by
2010, West Melbourne resi-
dents would demand 2.47
million gallons per day, and
that by 2015, the demand
could reach 2.9 million gal-
lons per day.
If the council opts to con-
tinue with the plan, Veolia,
or another consultant,
could begin the permitting


process immediately.
The city would need to
determine whether it
already owns appropriate
land for the plant and well
fields.
Mr. Kowal recommended
the city construct a reverse-
osmosis using slightly salty,
or brackish, shallow
groundwater from wells
approximately 500 feet
deep.
The water is treated by fil-
tering it through a mem-
brane, resulting in approxi-
mately 75 percent drinkable
water and 25 percent highly
salty water.
The salty water is then
reinjected underground
through a well that is rough-
ly 2,000 feet deep, said Mr.
Kowal.
The brackish water
.reverse osmosis plants are
easier to get permitted and
are more tolerant to drought
conditions than surface
water or desalinization
plants, he said.
The company is currently
constructing a similar plant
in Clewiston, and there are
more than 130 such plants


throughout the state
already.
Council members voted
to conduct a field trip to a
nearby plant to learn more
about the process before
making a final decision.
"We all know this is a great
issue for the city of West
Melbourne," said council
member John D'Amico, who
first requested the Veolia
feasibility study.
"We've had problems with
the city of Melbourne in the
past, and we may have
problems in the future," he
said.
The other council mem-
bers agreed with Mr. D'Ami-
co.
"If' these cities that are
half our size are doing it,
then so can we," said cotn-
cil member Mike Hazlett. -
The entire permitting,
design and construction
process could take approxi-
mately four years, said Mr.
Kowal.

'Guys' just fine for this 'Island Time' writer
After reading "'Guys' isn't appropriate when there are gals
in the group," I think, "Good grief, get over yourself."
I loved the editor's note and couldn't agree more.
I am female and don't think the term "guys" is insulting to
me at all. It shows that the server is comfortable and
assumes that the dining guests are. approachable. If it were
a really ritzy restaurant, then the guest should be addressed
more respectfully, but my guess is that this was not the case.
I'm thinking this is just another perfect example of peo-
ple moving down to Florida from a New England area state
and wanting this area to conform to how things are up
there.
This is a laid back, come-as-you-are area. Let's keep it
that way!
Sincerely,
A 33-year-old girl living on "Island Time."

Tip' giver just plain cheap

I am calling about "'Guys' isn't appropriate when there
are gals in the group," about the gentleman who leaves a (a
card) stating that the server should not use the word "guys"
when there is a lady present in lieu of a monetary tip.
Servers are hard working people who only make money
off the tips they earn and deserve.
As a server for many years, I find this appalling. I believe
the person who wrote that rant is obviously cheap and look-
ing for any excuse not to tip a good server.

Voting for a gender not the best criteria

Hello, I am making a comment on "Women should vote
for a woman for president."
The whole thing about (being) a woman in irrelevant. A
man, a woman, a black, a (Hispanic) it does pot matter.
(What does matters is) they are caring individuals' for this
country, intelligent (and) just an overall good person.
Sex and gender have no play in it.

Vote based on issues, not on gender
This is in regard to the 87-year-old woman who states
that women should vote for a woman president because of,
gender.
She's kidding, right?
A candidate's merit is 'based upon such qualities as
soundness of character, understanding of the issues, and
commitment to ideals. If the deciding factor on a vote is
gender, does that not smell a little like prejudice? Surely
this woman doesn't think that the woes of society or that
women-related issues are going to be finally addressed just
because a woman is in a political office.
I have no problem with a woman running for president,
but I won't vote based upon gender, race or ethnic back-
ground. As far as a woman's voice being heard in political
arenas is concerned, there are woman in both houses of
Congress, as well as the executive and judicial branches.
Our secretary of state is a woman. Based upon her com-
ment about wanting home policies and health issues under
a woman's control, I get the sense she has an ax to grind
with thq male population. My advice to all regarding the
upcoming elections is this: vote for the candidate according
to his or stand on the issues.

Vote on policy, not on gender

Dear Madam 87-year-old. You are very much entitled to
voice your opinion. You've seen many positive changes in
women's rights. However, I must strongly disagree with
your premise to vote for gender.
I thought the American way to choose a candidate was
because of policies, not gender, race or religion. Personally,
if Condolezza Rice were running for president, she'd get my
vote because she, in my opinion, is a fair-minded, sagacious
woman worthy of leading this country. I can't say the same
about Mrs. Clinton.
Vote policy; not gender.

Vote for a women, if she's most qualified
This is in response to the 87-year-old woman who
believes that women should vote for a woman president.
First, I want to thank you for all that your generation has
done for our great country; however, when deciding who to
vote for this coming election year, I hope that you would
change your position and encourage women to vote for the
most qualified candidate and consider all the issues. If that
happens to be a woman, then all the better.

Don't vote using shallow consideration
Women and men should only vote for the person who will
best fulfill the duties of the president of the United States.
One shouldn't vote for someone based on gender, reli-
gion, race, charisma or any other shallow consideration.
Nevertheless, honor, intelligence (and) valor, are impor-
tant. I do not believe that someone can lack personal moral-
ity and have political integrity. That goes for the president of
the United States as well as for his or her spouse, who will
also occupy the White House.
I am so disappointed in the offerings presented. I am now
hoping for a third party and will vote for a third-party candi-
date if that person is intelligent, moral, and respectable.
If you want a woman, how about we draft (Rep. Nancy)
Pelosi? Did you see that she has the courage to stand up to
the oil companies? I am impressed... and a little worried for
her.

To avoid slow drivers, stay in right lane:
In response to all the "left-laners:" I say, "Stay over there
and out of my lane, the right lane."
That keeps the right lane open for me to cruise through
without waiting for the slow ones to move out of the way. No
problems.

Giving children drugs is not a solution
I have been noticing a growing number of people con-
versing in public about their children having been diag-
nosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
Some even sound proud of it as if they are relieved to dis-
cover they are not responsible for their own children..I
would be outraged to have my child labeled as having a
mental disorder. I would fight tooth-and-nail to prevent my
child from being administered Schedule II narcotics. Ritalin
is like cocaine.
There are no objective medical tests to diagnose ADHD,
according to the National Institutes of Health. The diagnosis
is purely subjective. In other words, someone's opinion
based on just how much like a kid does the kid act? I'm sorry
if you can't stand the motion and randomity of childhood
when you aren't the child. Look at it and understand it for
what it is childhood.
Do you have to have children currently to speak out
against this outrage? You need only to look at the evening
news for the answer. The TV spews out examples of social
disorder: drug addicts, murders, shootouts with police,
child abductions, burglaries, hold ups, shoplifting rings, ad
absurdum.
Do you think these were all committed by normally


rationalpeople who on the day of the crime decided to go to
the dark side or were suddenly provoked by the devil? I think
not.
Children are the future of mankind. Each and every one of
. us is responsible to provide a moral, ethical and survivable
future for our species. Can a society become so degraded as
to drug its children so they will sit still?
Please. Do something.
Editor's note: While methylphenidate, more commonly
known as Ritalin, works in the same way as cocaine, 'stimu-
lating the production of dopamine, researchers have con-
cluded that it is not as addictive.
An article On the Archives of General Psychiatry Web site,
cites the results of a study led by psychiatrist Nora Volkow,
head of. the research team and of Brookhaven's Medical
Department: "The slow-acting effect we've seen ... gives us
confidence that the low oral doses given to children with
ADHD cannot cause the quick and intense feeling of reward
that is necessary to reinforce the behavior of taking the drug."

Those attacking homosexuals,
fail to see same problem among heterosexuals
Well,you've heard one side of the story; here s the other.
So mania wish to show that homosexuals are promiscu-
ous. I an here to give you the other side.
While there may be bath houses in San Francisco and
used to be in New York, there are many, many more broth-
els, cathouses, escort services, madam's, gentlemen's clubs;
men's clubs, strip clubs and sex theaters throughout the
entire country.
These are but a few, along with prostitution and private
services, massage parlors, beauty parlors and academies.
In Texas, there is the famous Chicken (Ranch) and the
CatHouse, and (there are) several massage parlors in Con-
necticut., There are massage parlors, beauty academies
(and) brothels throughout the country from New Hamp-
shire to California, including Florida.
I've known many heterosexuals who have had more than
1,000 notches on their belts.
I know of one in particular who brags about his 20 or more
kids, and yet they are not from the same woman.
To cast hatred, one always looks at the evils of another
and never the good.
While there are many non-monogamous homosexuals,
there-a-e just as many if not more non-monogamous,
promiscuous heterosexuals.!
So, before you cast a stone, be sure you do not live in a
glass house.
Also, there are many homosexual relationships (where)
partners have been together for more than 25 years and
never strayed. So, the differences are very slim.
All people are alike, the only difference is their preference.
Next time, look at both sides of the coin before judging.

Commissioners still
raising taxes despite claim
to keep spending down

Gee, wasit only a few months
ago? Back when our County
Commissioners were telling us
how they were doing everything
possible to keep down county
spending and the taxes to pay for
it? "Tightening our belts" all they


could? Back then many of us
doubted the .veracity of those
claims, but the commissioners'
supporters all assured us they
really were doing their best.
Tuesday, our commissioners
had the opportunity to show
their metal. The garbage and
trash collection contract for the
unincorporated areas was under
negotiation. The choices were
down to a $20 a year increase in
cost and taxes to continue the


present system, which practically
all of us are perfectly happy with,-
or an option with an increase two
and a half times as much.
What would we taxpayers gain
for that inflated tax increase? All
of our garbage cans will look the
same, and they will be larger and
fewer. That is it. Unless, of
course, you consider reduced
Western Waste jobs in Brevard
County to be a "gain.",
Commissioners (Chuck) Nel-


son and (Truman)', Scarborough
voted to stay with the current
system at the limited increase.
Commissioners (Mary) Bolin,
(Jackie) Colon, and (Helen) Voltz
all voted for the higher cost, and
higher taxes. Sb- Wuch for "every
effort" to keep taxes down. But
hey, this 'system will look nieerf
Oh, boy.
People, constitutional amend-
ments are not needed~to reduce
our taxes, nor do we need the


state to step iii and limit our out-
of-control government. What we
need is for all of us, the voters
they supposedly serve, to let
these clueless, disingenuous
commissioners know that this is
not acceptable. Let them know
loud and clear. Eliminate these
over-spenders at the first possi-
ble election. No other issue is
comparable.

From page A6
Forget about toys, what about lead on lips?
There's a lot of talk about lead in children's toys and I know
they are looking into it, but I also heard about lead being in lip-
stick. I haven't heard a word about that or follow up on it on
who it might be.
Editor's note: Good Morning America
(www.abcnewsgo.com)did a report Oct. 12 about a study con-
ducted by the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics, where 20 of the 33
lipsticks it had tested for lead came back positive. The brands
with the highest levels of the 33 were made by L'Oreal, Cover Girl
and Christian Dior
Oct. 13, The Seattle Times (seattletimes.nwsource.com)
reported that.the Food and DrugAdministration would be look-
ing into these claims. Currently, the FDA has no limit for lead in
lipstick.

Pelosi can't handle being new sheriff
Nancy Pelosi, I'm really upset with you. This was the Con-
gress that was supposed to come in and get a lot of stuff done.
All we've heard is a lot of rhetoric
Since you can't take care of the important things like getting
the troops paid, let's go back to basics and start with some sim-
ple stuff. See if you can get the toy deal fixed coming from
China. Let's see if we can get safer toys for the little kids to chew
on.
You were supposed to be the new sheriff in town, and you
don't even make a good deputy.

A plea made to drivers to stop being in such a
rush
I haven't ranted here yet, but it's time now.
The speeding and the red-light and stop-sign running driv-
ers are out of control lately.
Hey, what's your hurry, you're already here. Unfortunately,
the county sheriffs department, when I called them, has told
me it is too expensive for them to set up speed traps anymore.
Don't they at least get some of the income from tickets?
Mostly, I wish to plead with the aggressive or hurried drivers:
Please don't try to change the clock with your speedometer. In
reality, speeding and running red lights and stop signs won't get
you where you're going much sooner than by obeying the lights
and signs.
Really, and you won't waste gas and risk lives.

Writer takes paper to task over lack of Pearl
Harbor story
,I live in Merritt Island, I am retired and I am a veteran.
I want to let you know that I really take offense after picking
up the paper this morning and nowhere is there are an article
or reference as to what day this is. Today is Dec. 7, Pearl Harbor
Day, the start of (the U.S. involvement in) World War II, 'and
your paper decided not to even acknowledge the fact of this
historic date.
You leave a lot to be desired.

Never forget three historic events
As we enter the holiday season, we can be thankful that we
live in the best country on this Earth.
We have some problems, but still this is the best country.
I strongly believe that we need to keep three major events
that have occurred to this country in our minds at all times as
we enter this holiday season.
The Alamo and what is occurring right now with the illegal
immigrants and the problems that situation is causing. .'
Pearl Harbor and what is occurring with our automobile


Paroait

Medls Chin


industry. We have many Japanese-named auto assembly plants
in this country, but how many American auto assembly plants
are there in Japan? I expect there are very few, if any. I cringe
when I see Japanese named cars driven by our military person-
nel, both active duty and retired, and our police and fire per-
sonnel. I believe these individuals have been defending our
country or our communities but now some have chosen to
drive a Japanese named car when Japan tried to destroy us at
Pearl Harbor. I was in the military for several years, and I have
always driven American-named cars and would never consid-
er driving anything else.
The twin tower disaster needs to be remembered as we
have many enemies that are out to destroy our country and our
way of life.
I want to wish each of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy
NewYear.

Unlike World War II,
basis for newer wars seem vague
I hate it when U.S. involvement in Vietnam and the Middle
East is compared to WorldWar II.
There is no correlation. Japan attacked Hawaii, and Hitler
was a madman from Germany intent on taking over the world.
The U.S. declared war against two countries to protect the U.S.
and our European Allies.
There was a vague and inconsistent "preventing the spread
of communism" about Vietnam.
So, perhaps someone can tell me how North and South Viet-
nam are doing now? Did we improve things for someone?
Who? What? How? I really do not know.
In Iraq, we destroyed terrorist training camps, captured (Sad-
dam) Hussein, and stopped the work on germ warfare the only
WMD found.
So, what are we doing now?
I do like it that there appear to be fewer terrorist attacks, but I
. do not see how we can "stabilize a government" in an area that
has been characterized by hostile desert tribes for centuries.
Must we force them into the 21st century and democracy,
because our way is the right way?
It is a contradiction that we are fighting terrorists in the Mid-
dle East when our qwn government says that thousands of ter-
rorists cross both our boarders illegally every year. It would
make sense that the U.S. government assist local law enforce-
ment in stopping the illegal invasion that is in violation of our
immigration laws.
Why are we fighting terrorism in other countries and leaving
our borders open?

Romney worthy to be president
This is regarding "Not many worthy to be president."
We do have a fine candidate: Mitt Romney. He is the only one
who (has) his first and only wife, and they have five fine sons.
He was. a good governor of Massachusetts and kept the
Olympics in the black.
He is also a fine Christian with no affairs in his background. I
will definitely vote for him.

Dog owners are responsible for pet's behavior
I am a morning walker. A problem that I encounter on my
walks is dogs on the loose. When a dog comes at me barking,
snarling, and snapping. I do not appreciate some owner telling
me, "Don't worry, he won't bite you. He is gentle."
The truth is that he won't bite her. He will bite me. If your dog
goes nuts barking and jumping at a fence when people pass,
that dog is out of control and will attack if given the opportuni-
ty.
If you choose to let the dogs out of the front door in the
morning, have them on a leash. Have the courtesy to ensure
that they won't go snapping at someone just walking by.
Dogs need a lot of attention from owners. I especially loathe
owners who neglect to properly train arid gentle their dog, then
buy a second dog so they can keep each other company. Now


you have a dog training a dog. This is not a formula designed
by a genius. The dogs just get each other going.
I know that some people love and care for their dogs. How-
ever, since my 4-year-old was attacked by a Husky, I am less tol-
erant of dog owners who are oblivious to their responsibilities.
Everyone who loves pets should have the right to keep them.
However, I don't want anyone else's dog bothering me. I don't
want them snapping at me when I go for'a walk. I don't want to
have someone's dog snarling and threatening as I cut my grass,
or barking at me so I can't use my backyard or lanai or can't be
free of the constant sound of barking even inside my own
home.

Instead of dogs, perhaps people
should be banned from beaches
I braved the red tide of the ocean just past dawn this morn-
ing. I made a visit to the beach. I came across a man feeding
seagulls and a woman with her dog.
The man was tossing food to a flock of seagulls, where the
beach walkway ramp is. The man was content and peaceful. I
am sure the birds were happy for the free handout, though they
soiled the sand where he fed them.
I was struck though, by the look on the dog' face, it was one of
complete and absolute joy. He was thrilled to be there. Free to
run, roam, visit the water's edge, sniff, dig for crabs, chase birds,

explore, and play to his heart's content kind of like we
humans (are) at the beach.
I thought, too, of the "No Dogs Allowed" edict.
Is not the dog, as much a part of nature as the pelicans? As
the crabs, he digs? As the family of four-legged creatures (such
as) raccoons, who eat turtle eggs?
As much a part of the environment, as say the people?
And yet we deny him his glorious visit.
A ridiculous a comparison you say, "The dog is just a dog."
Besides, you say "He soils the beach."
Yes, he does. As do the pelicans, seagulls, raccoons and all.
who live there. Yet we don't throw up our arms at what they
leave behind, do we?
"It's natural," you say. "We step over it or kick a little sand over
it, knowing it'll be broken down in a day or so."
Yes it will. So let us not ban the birds, raccoons and other
creatures that foul the beach. A plastic bag for a dog dropping
taken off the beach would be responsible, no?
I've yet to see a dog, bird, or raccoon leave a plastic water
bottle behind. I've yet to see a dog, bird or crab leave wads of
fishing line behind. I've yet to see a pelican, dog or raccoon
leave broken beer bottles behind. Or plastic bags. Or dispos-
able diapers. Or Styrofoam cups. Or bait containers.
Is that natural? Is it soil? Will it breakdown in a few days?
Should we post a new sign: "No People Allowed."
"Oh, how ridiculous," you say.

Another case against
U.S. founded as Christian nation

I'd like to comment to the two people who wrote different
articles referring to the U.S. Constitution and God.
The person who wrote that the U.S. Constitution refers to "iA
the year of our lord ..." is incorrect in the assumption that it
makes us a Christian nation. Jewish people have always used
the word Lord referring to God and Muslims in using Allah are
referring to the same God.
For those who don't know it, Allah is the Arabic word for God
and even Jews in that area, if they speak Arabic, use the word
Allah.
So that does not make us a Christian nation.
The other writer assumes the word "oath" has got to refer to
God. Never assume. Check your dictionary. (Oath means) 1) a
solemn appeal to God or to some revered person or thing. 2) a
statement or promise strengthened by such an appeal. 3) the
form of words in which such a statement or promise is made.
The expression we sometimes hear, "I swear on my mother's
grave," could be typical of the first definition.

TRAVEL


Writer thankful to have enjoyed Italy


A palm growing next to
a light post, and the
till balmy weather in
late November, made me
feel as if I were in Florida.
But as my true love,
Jeannie, and I walked
farther into central Rome, I
gradually became
immersed in this host city
and, for the most part,
relished being a foreigner.
Scooters, motorbikes, cars
and buses gunned their way
around the Victor
Emmanuel Monument, a
castle-like building where
Mussolini used to deliver
speeches from a balcony.
Chariots of fire galloped
atop its towers, reminding
me of Caesar's Palace in Las
Vegas.
Nearby was a graceful
present: The Pantheon,
supported by thick
columns, with candlelight,
shining on its interior gold
crosses, white sculptures,
and paintings rich in
biblical scenes.:
Outside, a carved face
lightheartedly spit water
into a fountain next to
diners under canopies and
the night's shy moon.
Besides my passport and
money, my camera was my
most prized possession on
this trip. There seemed to be
a photo opportunity around
every comer of this ancient
city.
We had entered Italy by
flying over the snow-dotted
Alps. I tried going in fresh,
with few images and bits of
advice from books, Web
sites and television to spoil
the adventure.
It worked.
When we first left the cozy
confines of our hotel room
in Rome, we chuckled at the
tiny Mr. Bean-like cars
-running along the city
streets. Although I'm sure
these pint-sized vehicles
provide great gas mileage,
their drivers probably prefer
them because of the mostly
narrow, twisted streets in -
Rome, which has nearly 4
million residents.
While those Roman
streets seemed quieter than
.their American counter-
parts, good luck crossing
them as a pedestrian!
Near the Victor
Emmanuel Monument, we
saw a police officer, whose
uniform included white
gloves and a helmet,
directing many rows of
traffic from a platform
inside a roundabout. But
overall, I saw few crosswalks
and traffic signals, and we
often had to pray that the
drivers would stop for us.


TONY JUDNICH
Staff writer
Besides having to dodge
traffic, we weren't thrilled at
the graffiti on buildings near
the central bus and train
terminal.
Still, those recollections
are easily overshadowed by
the opulence found in most
other parts of Rome we
visited.
My better memories of
the city include one of an
old man in a dark gray suit
reaching into a box of treats
for dozens of pigeons in an
ancient square.'
Surrounding the square
were buildings dressed in
different colors of paint,
with windows graced by
arches. Their designers
succeeded in creating
enduring beauty.
Also standing the test of
time, of course, was the
Colosseum. It's worth
setting aside at least two
hours to explore its vast
remains.
Just as enjoyable were the
views of some of Rome's
stately homes, where we
spotted tangerine trees in
courtyards, flowerboxes
outside windows and
elaborate light fixtures.
At the Trevi Fountain,
Rome's largest, Jeannie and
I enjoyed a night view of a
figure of Neptune and other
statues. Some men sold
roses and other items to
tourists who arrived by the
busload.
The equally crowded
Spanish Steps were fun to
visit, but a massive adver-
tisement between church
towers at the top of the
steps spoiled some of the
scene.
At Vatican City the
world's smallest state we
saw a church official
walking down stairs
between two colorfully
dressed guards. Inside St.
Peter's, we were awed by
Michelangelo's Pieta, which
he created in 1499 at age 25.
It looked flawless.
Statues of cherubs, angels
and popes were everywhere,
from eye level to ceiling,

and throngs of admirers
enjoyed them quietly.
Outside again, we spotted
a hummingbird hovering
above the Tiber River. We
crossed bridges lined with
statues and, at an outdoor
caf6, enjoyed thin-crusted
pizza with red wine.
Whenever possible, we
dined outside. One of our
few indoor meals was at
Papa Rex, a restaurant we
stopped at during a night
tour of Rome. Here, live
Italian and Roman folk
songs accompanied our
feast.
Our dinner party included
couples from South Caroli-
na and NewYork. I realized
it was Thanksgiving and,
with a trace of homesick-
ness, I made a toast.
Near the end of our
whirlwind trip to Italy,
Jeannie and I went on a
three-hour train ride from
Rome to Florence. Vine-
yards, hills covered with
orange and brown houses
and concrete picket fences
sailed past our window.
To me, Florence looked
and smelled medieval.
Many of its huge, ancient
buildings seemed layered
with soot. I remember
smelling smoke from a
woodstove while walking
toward the Duomo, Europe's
fourth-largest church.
As they did near the
bridges in Rome, artists set
up their easels outside the
Duomo and offered paint-
ings for sale. Intricate
shapes and figures on the
exteriors of the Duomo, and
The Bapistry next door,
made these two structures
the most impressive forms
of architecture I saw in Italy.
But there were simpler
scenes in Florence that I
also cherish, such as a lone,
silver-colored scooter
parked next to a mustard-
colored building with


wooden doors and shutters.
One of the last photos I
took in Italy was of a view
from a restaurant we ate at
in Florence.
The picture shows a
bottle of wine on our
outside table in the fore-
ground, with statues,
including a copy of
Michelangelo's David, in
the back.
Here at home, I enjoy
remembering such sights
and experiences and, with a
trace of longing, I make a
toast.

The homework I spent
three hours on yester-

bellowed St. Peter's Prep

tearing the papers out of her

"I put the homework in the

"What's that?" Mark asked
as he looked at the odd box

"Look Squirt, I'm kind of

That just made Mark push
in closer.

less-than-fatherly voice from
the family room. "The

Nita's mother noticed that

much left in it as it had the
day before as she put away
the juice cups and pulled
down the milk glasses from
the cabinet.
Dan finally conceded. "OK,

Celebrate New Year with a special Italian treat from 'Mamma'


H ello. Hope you had a
wonderful, blessed
Christmas.
Now it's time to ring in
2008. Here are a couple of
New Year's traditions for you
to ponder.
Up North, eating a piece of
pickled herring at midnight
and touching a dollar bill,
symbolically, means there
will always be food on the
table and money in your
pocket.
Here in the South you
must eat pork and black-
eyed peas on NewYear's
Day.
I can remember New
Year's Eve being a celebra-
tion where we made as
much noise as possible at
the stroke of midnight. I
have some noisemakers
from my parents that date
back more than 70 years (no


cut fingers from sharp
metal, that's for sure).
To me, it's a capital sin to
be sleeping at midnight. I
used to wake my kids up
just to make noise. Silly?
Childish? Maybe so, but I
hope to never lose that
excitement.
Resolve to love one
another more. Don't think
there will always be tomor-
row. Sometimes tomorrow
never comes.
Today's column is a tribute
to "Mamma," my paternal
grandmother.
For NewYear's she made
cookies; not regular cookies
but special Italian treats
coated with honey and
topped with colored candy
sprinkles. Strufoli (honey
clusters) many of you are
familiar with, but her other

Romancing the Stove
with the Grammy Guru
specialty I'll bet you've
never heard of tordillo
(hope the spelling is right),
which was made with olive
oil and wine. It was every-
one's favorite.
When I finally decided to
make them, I kept hearing
Mamma saying, "You have
to feel when it's right."
Back my memory went to
when I was 17. I had asked
for the recipe and Mamma
said in her delightful Italian
accent, "You come over and
we do it together."
What I thought was going
to be very easy turned out to
be a bit of a fiasco when I
kept questioning Mamma's
instructions.
Here's how it went while
making the tordillos:
Mamma: "Dump flour on
the board."


Me: "How much flour?"
Mamma: "This much," she
said, pointing to the flour
on the board. "Make a hole
in the center of the flour
and pour in 1 glass of wine
and 1/2 glass oil."
Me: "What size glass?"
Mamma: Her voice rising,
she held up the glass and
said, "This size!"
"Now mix it all together
until it feels right."
At that point I just couldn't
resist. "What does 'right' feel
like?"
She threw her hands up in
desperation and said, "Don't
say another word. You ask
too many questions. Watch
what I do and DO it."
In most traditional
cooking, you have to "feel"
when it's right. I've taken
that "feel" and tried to put it
into measurements for you
in all the family recipes I
have given you. While
making these cookies, I
think I really learned what
"right" feels like.
Enjoy. See you next year.

Money-saving tip: Buy
honey in grocery warehous-
es or from local sources.

TORDILLO (NIB)
The wine used for these
cookies was Muscatel. If you
can't find it, use a slightly
sweet white wine or a dry

arts in

new year
Each year, millions of
people make New
Year's resolutions,
only to fail miserably when
faced with that piece of
double chocolate cake or
the reality of their new
sunrise workout schedule.
Why not go a bit easier on
yourself this year and
resolve to support the local
arts and entertainment
community? While you're at
it, maybe resolve to try that
new restaurant in your
neighborhood?
In the spirit of the New
Year, resolve to step out of
your comfy routines and
cushy lairs and into the
unknown. You may have
more fun than you could
possibly imagine.
I resolve to make it as easy
as possible for you, by
covering as many arts and
entertainment events as I
possibly can.
In 2008, you will be
offered a bevy of local
entertainment choices,
from popular Neil Simon
plays and Broadway
inspired musicals to
offbeat, edgy productions,
surf photography exhibits
and tasty dining reviews.
This is rot the year to sit
idle. Get out and support
the locals. The more people
who make the arts and
entertainment scene, the
more our options will
continue to grow.
See you next year.

'Viera Wetlands Pre-dawn' by Mark Mittleman will be on display at Fifth Avenue Art Gallery's 'Resolutions and
New Beginnings,' which opens Jan. 4 with a reception from 5:30-8:30 p.m. Sixteen member artists will participate.


New year, new beginnings


Gallery explores fresh
themes, resolves old
BY LISA M. ONORATO
Entertainment writer
With 2008 just around the corner,
Fifth Avenue Art Gallery members
are putting their resolutions on
display.
The "Resolutions and New
Beginnings" show opens Jan. 4., and
each of the 16 artists will contribute
a piece in the form of a visual New


Year's resolution.
The exhibit will feature a variety of
media, including photography,
painting, sculpture and jewelry.
Photographer and chairman of the
exhibit Mark Mittleman said the
artwork will represent each artist's
personal vision.
"Artists may take a look at style
and look at the subject matter
within," he said.
Mr. Mittleman, who's been a
gallery member for two years, said
'with the approach of a New Year, he
finds himself moving in a new


Sunday


direction with his photography. He
began taking photographs more
than 40 years ago, but has only
actively sold his photos for two
years.
"I originally began taking photos
of my wife's orchids," he said.
"Lately, I've been turning from
orchids to doing traditional land-
scape."
His digital photograph, "Viera
Wetlands Pre-dawn," will be fea-
tured in the Jan. 4 show.

The photograph captures
a serene morning, seeming-
ly moments before the
wetlands' inhabitants come
to life. The dark shadows of
trees and vegetation are
juxtaposed with shades of
pink and orange, and the
water below is a mirror
image of the sky.
Mr. Mittleman said he
spends a lot of time at the
Viera wetlands in hope of
capturing the perfect
moment.
"Things work out some-
times," he said. "If you go,
you might get lucky and all
the conditions hit."
Both new gallery mem-
bers and veteran gallery
members are exploring new
themes in their work.
Twenty-five-year member


and painter Marlis Newman
said she, too, is experienc-
ing a newfound direction in
her work. Currently paint-
ing, she said she also has
worked with monoprints.
"I've gone from impres-
sionism to abstract or
nonrepresentational," Ms.
Newman said, speaking of
her paintings.
Her piece, "Saturday
Morning," was created just
prior to the gallery's deci-
sion to host "Resolutions
and New Beginnings."
"For me, the painting was
perfect," she said "It
represented a breakthrough
and it pushed me in a new
direction in my work. I felt
good when I finished that
piece, and I don't always
feel that way.
"When you finish a piece
and it makes your heart
sing, it's a good feeling,
especially after working for


years and years."
An opening reception for
"Resolutions and New
Beginnings" will be 5:30-
8:30 p.m. Friday, Jan. 4, at
Fifth Avenue Art Gallery,
1470 Highland Ave., Mel-
bourne.
Other artists exhibiting
include, Pat Catsimanes;

"Looking ahead, we're
getting a tremendous
response for tickets to
'Nunsense,'" he said.
In April, the Henegar
Center presents "Cabaret,"
with a twist.
"We're combining the
three revival versions and
putting elements of all
three in the production,"
he said. "It's going to be an
exciting production."
Other theaters through-
out Brevard are reporting
a strong early season, as
well.
"It's been a fun season,"
said Melbourne Civic
Theatre office manager
Alix Hall.
"We actually had to add
another show for our'
current production, 'A
Christmas Story,'" she
said. "We've had a won-
derful response."
Melbourne Civic Theatre,
known for its offbeat
productions, is set next to
debut "The Last Touchy-
Feely Drama on the
American Stage," a comedy
that pokes fun at a father-
son drama as analyzed by
three sportscasters.
MCT will tackle a real
drama with "Death of A
Salesman" in March.

Ms. Hall said the theater
plans to end the season
with Neil Simon's "God's
Favorite."
"We've done some
interesting shows," she
said. "Especially our
interactive murder mys-
teries, which are always
wonderful. They're not
Shakespeare, they're just
fun."
Anthony Mowad, Surf-
side Playhouse board
member, actor and
director, said the beach-
side theater has been
doing well.
"We opened very strong-
ly," Mr. Mowad said.
Surfside opened the 2007
season with "The Vagina
Monologues," which Mr.
Mowad said sold out each
night.
Coming up, Surfside will
offer three main stage
shows, including two
musicals: "Man of LaMan-
cha," which opens Jan. 11
and "Pirates of Penzance,"
which opens in March.
For those who like edgier
productions, "Vampire
Lesbians of Sodom" will
run Feb. 1 -9, as part of
Surfside Playhouse's
Second Stage Series.

Beachside ja club a hit with magazEN



Beachside jazz club a hit with magazine


BY LISA M. ONORATO
Entertainment writer
Like it's big city counter-
parts, a local beachside
club has all that jazz.
Heidi's Jazz Club in
Cocoa Beach was recently
named in JAZZIZ maga-
zine's list of the Best Jazz
Clubs in North America.
Among the prestigious list
are clubs in New York, Los
Angeles and Hollywood,
Calif.
Heidi Deleuil, who co-
owns the club with her
husband, Eddie, said she
first heard the news when
some customers e-mailed
her.
"It's great," Mrs. Deleuil
said. "People love to come
(here) because we are one
of the few places left that's
intimate. It's very reward-
ing and it helps when a
magazine (like JAZZIZ)
recognizes us."
JAZZIZ is a 20-year-old
national publication that
covers all aspects ofjazz
music. According to its
Web site, the magazine is
the largest-circulated jazz
magazine in the world.
Mrs. Deleuil said the
magazine based its


"Its great. People love to come (here)

when a magazine (like JAZZIZ) recognizes us."

Heidi's Jazz Club in Cocoa Beach was recently named as one of the top jazz clubs in the
country by JAZZIZ magazine. Heidi's Jazz Club, 7 N. Orlando Ave., offers live music Tues-
day through Sunday. For information, call (321) 783-4559 or visit
www.heidisjazzclub.com.


selection on a consistent
straight-ahead live
jazz/blues format and
support of the jazz culture.
The Deleuils opened the
club in 1992 and also own.
The Heidelberg Restau-
rant, located next door to
the club, which offers
German and European


cuisine.
Local jazz legend Jack
Simpson, who recently
celebrated 40 years of his
"Jazz on the Beach" radio
show, is a regular at
Heidi's, where he often
emcees. He said he was
excited the club received
such recognition.


"To me, it's a very signifi-
cant thing," he said. "I've
been to jazz clubs all over
the country, and, when
you walk in the front door
(at Heidi's) that atmos-
phere is there. It's like
being in Greenwich
Village."
In addition to the jazz


club atmosphere, Mr.
Simpson said Heidi's also
offers something that's a
rarity in the area: big
names.
"She's had some great
players. Players nobody
else would bring to the
area. And I've got to meet
some of my great heroes."
Some of the jazz greats
who've appeared at Heidi's
include singer Freddy
Cole; Tommy Flanagan,
accompanist of Ella
Fitzgerald; violin great
Johhny Frigo; and saxo-
phonist Boots Randolph.
In addition to bringing
in big artists, Heidi's is
home to the one of the
best house trios around,
said Mr. Simpson, refer-
ring to the Ron Teixeira
Trio.
"The house trio is a first-
class act," he said.


With 15 years at the
club's helm, Mrs: Deleuil
is well aware of the.
precious commodity she
owns.
"It's a gem," she said.:
"There aren't tooimany
clubs around doing this,"
she said. "There's alot of
history here. We're'riurtur-
ing the culture."
Heidi's Jazz Club is at 7
N. Orlando Ave., Cocoa
Beach. The club hosts live
music Tuesday through
Sunday.

10.) Blue Ducks on brink

For the past five summers,
the Brevard Blue Ducks
have treated Brevard Coun-

breaks, slam dunks and
good times.
Unfortunately, 2006 may
have marked the end of
Duck season in Brevard
County.

"Florida is a great football
state," he said. "I do know
that a small percentage of
states have JUCO (junior
college) football. The main
concerns I see that will
need to be addressed are
finances, funding and
issues with gender equity.
These are very important
concerns that will have to
be looked into."
7.) Local athletes tested
for steroids
A bill passed in May by
the Florida Legislature sub-
jects some local high school
athletes to random testing
for anabolic steroids.
HB 461 institutes a one-
year pilot program requir-
ing the Florida High School
Athletic Association to
facilitate random steroid
testing of 1 percent of stu-
dent athletes participating
in baseball, football and
weightlifting.
The bill includes $100,000
to pay for the testing of ath-
letes at the FHSAA's 426
public and 224 private
member schools.
The legislation is took
effect July 1.
Pete Donovan, coach of
the Melbourne High School
Bulldogs baseball team that
won 24 straight games in
2007, supports the testing
program but has his con-
cerns.
"I have never suspected
steroid use in one of my
kids," he said. I am very
interested in what they
mean by random testing.
Are we going to test a kid we
suspect and pretend it's
'random'? How much will a
coach be involved? But if
the state feels it's necessary
and if we can help' one ath-
letp be safe because of test-
ing, I fully support it."
6.) Melbourne man to
cycle for a cure
Michael Yorkey is a 39-
year-old chef living in Mel-
bourne.
He's also part of a glaring
statistic.
Diagnosed 20 years ago,.
Mr. Yorkey is one of an esti-
mated 1 million people in
the United States living
with HIV.
"I do feel fortunate," he
said. "Only a chosen, few
live this long with HIV and
not have major complica-
tions."
On June 3, Mr. Yorkey
joined 3,000 others in AIDS
Lifecycle 6, an annual bike
trek from the civic center in
downtown San Francisco,
Calif., to Los Angles Inter-
national Airport to help
raise money and awareness
in the ongoing battle
against HIV and AIDS.
The money raised from
the bike ride goes to sup-
port the L.A. Gay and Les-
bian Center and the San
Francisco AIDS Foundation
which provide counseling,
therapy and medications to
affected people in the com-
munity.

North edges South in All-Star game

BY MATT O'HERN


Sports writer
Despite an inspiring late rally, the
South didn't rise again in the 2007
High School Football All-Star game.
The North held off a late charge by
the South and held on for a 13-10
win. The victory improved the
North's lead in the series to 9-2.
A packed stadium at Melbourne
Central Catholic High School
watched Bayside High School quar-
terback Maurice Francois orches-
trate an impressive scoring drive
that culminated with a 21-yard pass
to Eau Gallie running back Chris
Pushman.
Pushman's reception brought the
South within three points at 13-10,
with 2:25 left in the game. The South
recovered the ensuing onside kick
and set up shop on the 49-yard line.
Francois's 30-yard run down the
sideline put the South in the red
zone, but the team failed to find the
end zone on two running plays and
an incomplete pass. ,
With only four seconds remaining,
Melbourne High School kicker Brad
Holmes missed a game-tying field
goal attempt from 24 yards out.
Other highlights of the game
included a 38-yard past touchdown
pass from Chris Joly to Stevin Twiggs
that gave the North a 7-0 lead. It also
marked the final scoring play for Joly
and Twiggs, who were teammates at
Titusville High School.
Titusville coach Bobby Guthrie was
the coach of the North and tweaked
the play from the Terrier's playbook.
"We had to adjust the formation to
fit the rules, but that's one we run all
the time," he said. "I was fortunate
enough to bring my own coaching
staff, and that normally doesn't hap-
pen."
The North's other scoring plays
were two field goals from Merritt
Island High School kicker and defen-
sive back Matt Earhart, who made
his attempts from 35 yards and 45
yards. He also had an interception as
a defensive back.
His 45-yard kick in the all-star
game marked his longest successful
kick of the year. Prior to the game,
his best was a 42-yarder against
Titusville. He admitted that his last
high school game was a great way to
put the finishing touches on his
career and showcase his skills to any
potential scouts. He plans to stay in

From page B6
Western Illinois Universi-
ty junior and 2005 Mel-
bourne High School gradu-
ate Taylor Rowan has
earned his third Gateway
Football Conference Spe-
cial Teams Player of the
Week honor.
Rowan earned the honor
after the Leathernecks' 34-
13 victory at Stephen E
Austin Sept. 22.
His career-long 55-yarder
in the second half was the,
second-longest in school
history and made him just
the second Leatherneck
ever to hit two field goals of
at least 50 yards in one
game.
Rowan leads the entire
nation in field goals (2.75
per game), and ranks 11th
in the nation in scoring
(11.5 points per game).
4.) Teen grabs boxing gold
Aaron McConnel, 17-
year-old surfer turned box-
ing prodigy, won a gold
medal in the 165-pound
middleweight novice divi-
sion at Sunshine State
Games in Lakeland June 17.
The gold medal win, a
unanimous, three-round
decision over John Under-
wood, was just the second
fight of the Melbourne High
School senior's young box-
ing career.
"I've always thought I had
a calling to box," said the 6-
foot-3-inch McConnel,
whose only other sport is
surfing. "I knew I had the
potential and I just went in
there and did my job."
3.) Hurst grabs player of
the year honors

"We had to adjust the formation to fit the rules, but that's one
we run all the time. I was fortunate enough to bring my own
coaching staff, and that normally doesn't happen."

Bobby Guthrie,
North coach


Florida for his college career.
"It's up in the air; bet UCF, USF or
the University of Florida," he said.
"I'll probably try walking on for kick-
ing or punting."
One of the biggest highlights of the
game actually occurred at halftime,
when Scott Hallock, coach of Temple
Christian School's football team,
won a 2008 Nissan Titan from Mike
Erdman Nissan.
Hallock was originally slated as
one of the assistant coaches for the
North team, but he was unable to
make the game due to a pastor's
meeting at Temple Baptist Church.
Mike Erdman called Hallock to
reveal that he had won the prize.
His name was drawn from more


Holy Trinity senior Vicky
Hurst has been named the
2007 Rolex Junior Player of
the Year by the American.
Junior Golf Association.
The 17-year-old's out-
standing season included
three victories, three run-
ner-up finishes and berths
on the Canon Cup East
Team and PING Junior Sol-
heim 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's prowess in girls'
junior golf is evident by her
Polo Golf ranking, which
hasn't wavered much in
more than a year. She broke
into the top 10 in June 2006
and has held steady in the
top five since July 2006.
She ended last year's sea-
son with two AJGA victories
and runner-up finishes at
the McDonald's Betsy
Rawls Girls Championship-
and U.S. Girls' Junior.
Hurst ended 2007 ranked
No. 1 with eight top 10 fin-
ishes and three AJGA victo-
ries. She posted 33 rounds
during stroke play competi-
tion with an average of 72.6.
Fifteen times she shot 72 or
better, including a 6-under-
par 66 at The Country Club
at Mirasol during the the
Birks & Mayors Junior
Championship.

stroke victory at the NCAA
Division II Women's Cham-
pionship May 9-12 at the
Stonebrook Golf Club in
Pace, Fla.
A business major at Flori-

business with rounds of 72-
74-73-74 for a five-over-par
total of 293, one stroke bet-
ter than rival, Maria Garcia
Austt of Nova Southeastern
University.
"It still hasn't kicked in yet
that I made it to the top,"
lacobelli wrote in her blog
after the final round. "I feel
extremely honored. I know
I didn't do it by myself, and
there a lot of people to
thank."

double overtime regional
quarterfinal game at Bull-
I dogs 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.
"I don't think I've ever
been prouder of a group of
young men," Wilson said
after the overtime thriller.
"We've been in every kind
of hole imaginable this
year, but the guys refuse to
quit."
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.
