VIERA - Brevard County Fire
Chief Bill Farmer has requested
reassignment within the depart-
ment.
County manager Peggy Busacca
accepted Mr. Farmer's request on
Dec. 8, and re-assigned him to head
up the operations division of the
department, said department
spokesman Orlando Dominguez.
Deputy Fire Chief Dennis Neterer
will take over direction of the 550
firefighters, as interim chief, and
begin going over the department's
organizational structure.
The county manager has already


begun the process
of reviewing and
adapting the
department's orga- 7", ...
nizational structure
and budget func- .
tions.
Mr. Neterer, an
employee of more
than 29 years with .
Brevard County
Fire Rescue has a Farmer
bachelor's degree in
management from the University
of Central Florida. He also holds
numerous professional certifica-
tions.
During his 10-year tenure as fire
chief, Chief Farmer has overseen


the creation of an
Advanced Life Sup-
port First Response
program that saw
the reduction in
response time
from eight min-
utes to less than
six, according to
a list of successes


he supplied at the time of his
request for change.
He and his subordinates created
a leadership and tactical response
academy, which increased firefight-
er safety and reduced liability to the
county, he said.
He also helped in the creation of
nine new fire and/or EMS stations

Avoid

scams
By David Kearns
dkearns@hometownnewsol.com
It's a risk that comes with
a cashless society.
Law enforcers say that
this time of year, your
finances are as vulnerable
as your ability to keep an
eye on your debit and credit
cards.
"You really don't ever
hear about a customer fol-
lowing the waitress up to
the machine to watch as the
card is read," said Agent
Brad Lewis of the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement.
Perhaps it should be the
norm, not the exception.
Scammers and debit card
fraud specialists sometimes
work a day job; which is
often retail or restaurant, as
this dovetails with their true
calling.

Time stood still for
Carshonda Wright when
she got the call last October
informing her that a fire
had started at her apart-
ment and her eldest son
was being taken to the
emergency room.
A single mother of five,
Ms. Wright rushed home
from work to find firefight-
ers, rescue vehicles and
members of the media sur-
rounding the parking lot of
her Titusville apartment
complex, which she had
moved into only a month
before. .~
Her son, Keiaumbre, who
was 15 at the time, was
cooking French fries on the
stove, a task he had never
performed before.
The grease from the
French fries poured out of
the sides of the pan he was
using, causing it to flame
up. In an attempt to extin-


guish the fire, Keiaumbre
poured water onto the pan,
causing the flames and
smoke to expand even
more..
Gripping the handle of
the pan, Keiaumbre tried to
carry the pan outside, but
the draft from the open
door caused the fire and
smoke to spread onto the
floor and walls of the apart-
ment, while the scorching
grease poured down his leg.
Both he and his younger
brother, the only two home
at the time, escaped the
apartment and called for
help..
"It took about 15 minutes
for the fire and smoke to
destroy most of the apart-
ment," said Mrs. Wright, a
recreation leader with Bre-
vard County Parks & Recre-
ation. "But that was all the
time it needed."
Keiaumbre suffered sec-
ond- and first-degree burns

owed the department itself.
A department that has met
and exceeded many chal-
lenges placed in its path," he
wrote to the county manag-
er.
But Brevard County Clerk
of the Courts Scott Ellis said
Chief Farmer's lack of budg-
etary control had everything
to do with the change at the
department:
"It started about two years
ago," Mr. Ellis said. "We told
him in '07 he had $20 mil-
lion budget surplus in there
and he said he didn't."
About $10 million was in
the ambulance fund and
$10 million was in the fire
fund, Mr. Ellis said.
"He argued with us on
overages, the county hired
an accounting firm to inves-
tigate and we were correct,"
Mr. Ellis said.
The fire chief ran into fur-
ther controversy when Palm
Bay challenged the county's
right to act as the sole provider
of ambulance transport serv-
ices. Palm Bay subsequently
filed a lawsuit against Brevard,
claiming the county was
charging an illegal fee for
ambulance transport. The city
won, resulting in a restructur-
ing of the fee on annual tax
bills to a flat fee, rather than a
fee based on property values.
"We told him it was an ille-
gal fee," Mr. Ellis said.
The county later dis-
pensed with the fee follow-
ing a court ruling, Mr. Ellis


"If the county wants a
change, they need a
new chief brought in
from the outside.

Scott Ellis
Brevard County
Clerk of the Circuit Court

said.
"He spent money as fast as
he could spend it. It was
'Squanderville,' " Mr. Ellis
said.
Mr. Ellis said the problems
are tied to unintentional
errors and overspending. He
said that the chief did not
have the financial skills and
education required to run the
department.
Mr. Ellis said the chief has a
two-year college degree.
"If the county wants a
change, they need a new chief
brought in from the outside,"
Mr. Ellis said.
Chief Farmer could not be
reached for comment. Calls
were made to the office of the
county manager but were not
returned Dec. 12.
On Dec. 12, an inquiry was
made at the county's human
resources department to
review the employment files
on Chief Neterer and Chief
Farmer.
Carol L. Sheffield, person-
nel manager for the depart-
ment, said both employment
files were currently unavail-
able for dissemination to the
press.
The files would be available
at a later time, she said.

HOA, complex manager still at bitter odds IRs1
f~~~~~~~1 1 1i M^ 1H 1 ***^^ L e^ I I I R -^


By David Kearns
dkearns@hometownnewsol.com
On the one hand, we have a sign
ripped off a wall; human waste alleged-
ly found on the floor of the female rest-
room and paper towels allegedly stuffed
into and plugging up the toilets.
On the other, we have homeowners
allegedly prohibited from using recre-
ational facilities that they pay for. We
have a manager, allegedly, overcharging
for service fees paid to maintain the
recreational facilities.
Contention still brews between
members of the homeowners associa-
tion and the management of the 92-
acre, 412-unit mobile home communi-
ty off Hollywood Boulevard.
As it stands now, Denley Daw, the
manager and owner of the T and W
Corp., which runs nearly six acres of
common areas including a club house,
RV storage yard and swimming pool,
has filed an appeal to a recent ruling
awarding $62,000 in legal fees to the
homeowners association on their previ-
ous injunctions filed against the park
management.
Mr. Daw and his wife, Sally Daw, say
they have endured legal threats and
covert acts of protest from about 10 per-
cent of the homeowners in the park
since they purchased the recreational
facilities and storage yard from the orig-
inal owners in 2003.
They are also suing the attorney who
represented their interests at the time
they purchased the park facilities.
"We were stepping into a minefield,"
Mr. Daw said Nov. 17, adding that he
wasn't told there were ongoing issues
with the residents and he should have
been. He declined to elaborate.
Different than most mobile home
communities, Hollywood Estates
homeowners do not own their own
recreational facilities outright, manage-
ment does.
The clubhouse, pool and the RV stor-
age yard are owned by Mr. Daw and his
wife through their corporation.
Mr. Daw charges homeowners a fee
of about $96 per month, per household
to provide cable service, garbage collec-
tion, lawn maintenance in the common
areas, and upkeep to the pool, the club-
house and storage yard.
But according to the deed of restric-
tions, and laws of the state of Florida, he
can change the rates of that service fee
whenever there is a substantial change
to the consumer price index as main-
tained by the U.S. Department of Labor,.


provided he gives the residents a notice
of 90 days.
"Every month we seem to be getting a
new notice that he will raise the rates 90
days from now," said Dominic Algeria,
president of the homeowners associa-
tion.
"I defy them to show me where I have
made an illegal increase," Mr. Daw said.
Nevertheless, Mr. Algeria said the
changes are excessive.
"We have directed the property own-
ers to put 'paid under protest' on their
checks. In case we get a ruling to recoup
that money at a later date," Mr. Algeria
said.
Mr. Algeria said the homeowners
have raised and spent perhaps $200,000
in legal fees fighting changes to billing
and cable services since Mr. Daw and
his corporation took over the park.
A meeting involving several members
of the homeowners association had to
be moved from the community club-
house to the front yard of Natalie Kozak,
Nov. 12.
About 20 residents braved the heat
and drizzle as they crowded into Ms.
Kozak's driveway to hear a presentation
from an insurance vendor about
changes to Medicare.
The vendor, now an unwilling wit-
ness, or pawn in the dispute, depending
on your point of view, did not wish to be
mentioned by name or comment for
the article.
"I think it's a disgrace he makes these
old, retired people sit out in the hot
sun," said Florence Algeria.
The comments were echoed by her
husband, Dominic and Mrs. Kozak.
But Mr. Daw also keeps on-hand a
short video clip of Ms. Algeria tearing a
sign down from the wall of the club-
house, a video clip which was used as
the basis for a police action against the
elderly woman. She was directed to pay
$10 in restitution.
The clip was taken by one of several
cameras Mr. Daw installed to record
what goes on inside the clubhouse.
Mr. Daw said he was forced to begin
videotaping.
"The stove burners have been left on
high, freezer doors left open," Mr. Daw
said, adding that he has spent perhaps
$400,000 on upgrades to the clubhouse
since 2004. He cannot afford to have
people bleeding him out of spite.
Mr. Daw said he is not illegally over-
charging anyone, nor did he "kick" the
residents out of their clubhouse on Nov.
12.
Since -the insurance vendor was an


outsider, the homeowners should have
placed the item on the clubhouse cal-
endar, paid the $100 cleaning retainer
and the $250 damage deposit to host
the event, as is stated in the rules and
regulations for bringing in an outside
vendor.
"He's doing everything he can to
break chops or whatever you want to
call it," said Mr. Algeria.
Mr. Algeria said if individual home-
owners are involved in covert protests
and vandalism as alleged by Mr. Daw,
"It has nothing to do with the home-
owners association. I tell them not to do
that sort of thing. We aren't going to win
anything doing that."
Mrs. Algeria admitted she tore the
sign down, but that was only after an
incident at the clubhouse over St.
Patrick's Day of this year, in which she
required medical attention. She said
calling 911 was delayed momentarily
and needlessly because the phone is
firmly taped to the wall handle.
'After I was feeling a little better, I got
mad and tore the sign down. He got the
whole thing on film," Mrs. Algeria said.
"The whole thing is ridiculous. He's got
it taped so that you need a knife to get
the phone off the hook."
Mr. Daw contends that taping the
phone to the wall handle was necessary.
He had a regular phone in the club-
house but someone was making long
distance calls.
He changed the service for local
numbers only, but someone began dial-
ing 411 repeatedly which costs a $1
every time.
It came down to rigging the phone for
911 emergencies only, which did result
in repeated, needless, covert 911 calls to
the West Melbourne Police Depart-
ment, so he put tape over the phone
with a big, bold sign above it indicating
that as soon as the receiver comes off
the hook, police are called and are en
route.
At one point during the ongoing dis-
putes, Mr. Algeria said homeowners
approached Mr. Daw with an offer to
buy out the recreational facilities for
about $3.2 million but the deal fell
through.
One of the members of the home-
owners association, who had a private
lawsuit filed against T and W Corp.,
refused to put it down as part of the
deal.
The deal fell through, Mr. Algeria said.
"All this has put up a big wall between
us," Mr. Algeria said.

SUEY HIGHLIGuTS NEED FOR HEALTH IN
SURVEY HIGHLIGHTS NEED FOR HEALTH INSURANCE


A recent survey shows that
increasing numbers of
Americans are tapping into
savings accounts, home equity,
and credit cards to cover health
care costs. An estimated 72
million Americans between the
ages of 19 and *64, which
translates to 41 percent,
indicated they experienced
trouble paying for medical care
in 2007. These numbers and
percentages compare with
nearly 58 million, or 34 percent,
in 2005, Faced with rising
energy and food costs, the rising
financial pressures posed by
health care costs have pushed
some people far enough behind
to face. action by collection
agencies. Nearly twice as many
"underinsured" patients who
had either gaps in their coverage
or high deductibles shouldered
debt compared with those with
more. comprehensive medical
plans. -

of mind. It is comforting to

years and a photo album of

In addition to emergency
personnel, another signifi-

that day - a representative
from the Space Coast
Chapter of the American

"When the fire was put
out, he started asking me
where I was going to stay
for the night and how he
could help," Mrs. Wright
said. "We had nowhere to
go. He calmed my nerves
and told me not to worry,
and that these types of sit-
uations happen all the
time."
The Red Cross provided a
four-night stay for Mrs.
Wright and her family at a
local hotel. They gave her
clothing, gift cards to help
replace some of the dam-
aged items and care pack-'
ages full of toiletries, food
and toys.

to do? I don't even have a
toothbrush,'" Mrs. Wright
said. "They offered coun-
seling and other services -
things I would have never
even thought of. I was so
appreciative and so were
my kids."
Fortunately, the owner of
Mrs. Wright's apartment
complex agreed to help her
clean and renovate the
apartment. She and her
family were able to return
to their home within a
week.
"Honestly, I can't imag-
ine getting through the
experience without the Red
Cross there to help me,"
said Mrs. Wright. "It was so
comforting to just have
someone there supporting
you."
During the 2007-08 fis-
cal year, the Space Coast
Chapter of the American
Red Cross responded to
three major disasters: the
Titusville condo fire, the
Palm Bay wildfires and
Tropical Storm Fay, among
other smaller disasters.
More than 130 volun-
teers assisted more than
200 families, sheltered 590
people, served 6,270 meals
and provided 3,490 snacks.

$48,000, said Jane Bowden,
chairwoman of the public
relations task force for the
American Red Cross.
Each year, the organiza-
tion depends on hundreds
of volunteers in assisting
those in need before, dur-
ing and after a natural dis-
aster.
Now in its third year, the
Stars of the Space Coast
Gala recognizes individu-
als in the community in
nine different categories
for their committed service
to the organization.
In addition to the awards
ceremony, the event,
scheduled for March 14,
2009, features networking
opportunities, a catered
dinner, guest speakers, a
silent auction and a live
band.
The organization
receives a large portion of
its funding from local busi-
nesses that choose to
sponsor the event.
Guests can choose from
six sponsorship opportuni-
ties, which include table
reservations and a selec-
tion of business recogni-
tion opportunities.

tification to assisting more
than 2,000 military person-
nel, the organization does
more than just assist during
disasters, Ms. Bowden said.
Its services are year-round,
and during today's difficult
economic times, the organi-
zation needs the support of
the community now more
than ever.
"You never expect some-
thing like this to happen to
you," said Mrs. Wright, an
avid supporter of the organi-
zation. "But it can, and it
does. If a situation does
occur, you'll need that sup-
port just as much."

Also, your credit card com-

that even if they are caught,
they may not face hard time
or hefty fines. On the flip-
side, they can achieve big
profits for very little effort.
However, Detective Sgt.
Lewis Markline of the Mel-
bourne Police Department
said "we all end up paying
for it in the long run with the
higher service fees."
Both law officers are
advising you to monitor
your transactions daily,
especially during the holi-
day shopping season.
With the debit card, you
must be able to prove to
your financial institution
that you didn't make the
purchase.
'For this' reason, Agent
Lewis said, it is good to keep
all your receipts so that you
can establish a timeline that
can be used to prove where,
where you were not, and at
what time and date.
The state and local law
enforcers are cracking
down, and asking for help
from the public, retailers,
restaurants and the banks.
Always report debit credit
fraud or theft to the police,
immediately.
If you are the bank or mer-
chant, cooperating with
police and victims is just
being a good citizen.
"We are all in this togeth-
er," said Detective Sgt.
Markline.
* If you are the victim, get-
ting a record of the event is
the first step to fighting the
fraudulent charge with the
retailer or the bank.
It is also the only way local
police are going to find out
there is a problem with this
sort of crime in their area.
Crime and prevention
during the holiday season is
nothing new.
"Before, we told people
not to carry too much cash
with them. In today's age,
people are using these debit
and credit cards like cash.
Now we have to worry about
skimmers," said Detective
Sgt. Markline.
The investigator for the
Melbourne Police offered
more advice.
Check your own credit
with online services such as
Equifax.
Limit your transactions to
cash, or only one source of
credit.
Don't carry your Social
Security card or your PIN
number with you.
"Always lock your car door
when going into and out of
stores," Detective Sgt.
Markline said.
Thieves will get all your
information if you leave the
door unlocked with all your
important documents in the
glove box.
Agent Lewis said the
scamming isn't limited to
the point of sale machine
either.
Online, e-mail scams
abound during the holidays.
Con artists use the Internet
to connect with you during
the time of year your heart
and your wallet is most

A dentist's


advice on


caring for your


child's t

A s a general
practitioner in
the dental profes-
sion, I am often asked
by our patients as to
when they should bring
their new baby into the
office for their first
checkup.
In years.past, it was
common to wait until
the toddler years before
having your child see
the family dentist. The
problem with waiting is
that we lose the oppor-
tunity for early inter-
vention and prevention
of early childhood
caries - commonly
called "baby bottle
decay." An obvious, but
often forgotten, point to
remember is that teeth
are susceptible to decay
from the moment they
erupt into the oral
cavity.
The basic rule of
thumb, and one that is
presented by the Ameri-
can Academy of Pedi-
atric Dentistry, is to
have your child see the
dentist "within six
.months of eruption of
the first tooth and no
later than 12 months of
age."
(Tooth) decay in
children is caused by a
number of factors,
many of which can be
controlled with the help
of smart parenting. It's
true that decay is often
caused by sugary drinks
- milk, formula, fruit
juice, etc. - but it's also
how often and how long
the child is drinking
them that plays a big
role.
Long periods of time
and/or frequent expp-
sure to sugary drinks
can be extremely
detrimental in trying to
maintain a healthy
dentition. A recommen-
dation from the Ameri-
can Academy of Pedi-
atrics states that
children from 1-6 years
of age should be con-
suming no more than 1-
4 ounces of fruit juice
per day and as part of a
meal or snack, not from
a bottle or covered cup. /
Other preventative
measures include
putting baby to bed
with water, stop nursing
when they fall asleep,
no walking around with
juice/milk, no bottle

after 1 year of age and
don't dip a pacifier in
things such as honey or
sugar.
Another question I
hear is, "It's just a baby
tooth. Do they really
need it anyway?"
Absolutely. Your
child's first set of teeth
help to set the stage for
their future in a number
of ways, including
speech development,
nutrition and space
maintenance for the
developing adult teeth.
Some basic habits
started early can do
wonders in keeping a
happy and healthy baby
as well as'setting up
some personalhygiene.
habits that will help
them as they grow.
Before the first tooth
erupts, be sure to wipe
your infant's gums after
a feeding. When that
first tooth comes in,
generally in the lower
front, it is time to start
brushing. For children
under 2 years of age,
(use) just a "smear" of
toothpaste, and for ages
2-5, a "pea-size" amount
of toothpaste is fine.
Flossing should be
started when you can
no longer see between
the teeth because they
are touching the tooth
next to them. At that
point, a toothbrush is
unable to effectively
clean all tooth surfaces.
Enjoy your years as a
parent and teacher to
your children and get
them off to a head start,
bring them in for an
appointment with your
family dentist by their
first birthday. Give them
the gift of a happy,
healthy smile.

Dentistry at

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


Here's a solution

I applaud the city of Melbourne and representatives from
the Daily Bread to try to find a mutually acceptable solution
for the necessary expansion of the soup kitchen. Feeding the
hungry is indeed a noble cause. At the same time, Daily
Bread leaders must recognize that some of their clients are a
plague on the residents and businesses nearby. Neighbors
must deal with break-ins and human defecation on a regular
basis. Some are afraid. to leave their homes for fear of being
panhandled. I understand that it is expensive for the police
to protect this area 24-7, so what about this: Relocate the
Daily Bread adjacent to the Melbourne Police Department
facility on Apollo Road./With a constant flow of police cars
nearby, the criminal element of the Daily Bread clientele will
be less likely to loiter and cause trouble, while those who
really need the facilities can safely access the soup kitchen
and auxiliary services. No, it's not a perfect solution, since
Daily Bread wants to stay in the downtown area, but it is a.
reasonable compromise.
Spelling questioned

Over the last few weeks, I have noticed several references
in the Rants and Raves about the Anthony case over in
Orlando. Each time the "writer" refers to the tot mom as C-A-
Y-C-E-E Anthony. The correct spelling is C-A-S-E-Y and any-
body can plainly see that. It has appeared twice in one week
and again in the few following weeks. How can readers trust
anything you print if you can't check a simple fact such as
this? I don't know which is worse; trying to read a local paper
that doesn't bother to include sports coverage or a paper that
prints whatever is sent to them without checking facts. And,
why has there not been any coverage of how the country's
current financial troubles are (affecting) people (and) busi-
nesses locally?
Editor's note: The spelling of Ms. Anthony's name, accord-
ing to an arrest affidavit from the Orange County Sheriff's
Office, is "Casey." Hometown News regrets the error.
Weekly sports coverage at Hometown News was eliminated
due to space constraints. We look forward to the day when we
can, once again, include weekly local sports coverage. Howev-
er, we have not completely eliminated coverage of outstanding
teams or athletes. We simply no longer have an arena to pro-
vide weekly coverage. Hometown News is open to suggestions
for story ideas on teams and athletes. Those who wish to sub-
mit story ideas can do so by e-mailing brevnews@home-
townnewsol.com.
Time limits

In the wake of the recent election cycle, I've been reading a
lot of rants regarding limiting the length of time a campaign
may be run or how much is spent. The general sentiment
seems to circle around billions of dollars "wasted" on ads that
"annoy" them.
Consider this: Political advertisements are funded in part
by private donations, entirely in President-elect (Barack)
Obama's case. These are private citizens and organizations of
Americans believing in a cause or person enough to sacrifice
their own income to help get their message out and achieve
political office. To me this is the absolute definition of our
freedom of speech in action. We talk so much about protect-
ing our right to free speech, yet here we are, wishing to limit it
when it comes to elections, one of the most important deci-
sions we, as countrymen, make. I say, let a political message
run for 100 years and spend a trillion dollars if it has the back-
ing of even a single citizen. As long as an American has means
and the desire to speak their mind they should be given our
blessings, not our legislative muzzles.
As for political ad money going to waste, also consider this:
These dollars go to put food on the table of the millions of
people across the country who are employed by television
* and radio stations. This includes on-air personalities, techni-
cians, administrative staff, maintenance and housekeeping.
Those signs you see everywhere and the mailers that appear
in your mail box, those generate income for graphic design-
ers, press operators and their support staff, as well.
I personally find it admirable that, in a declining economy,


Americans cared enough to give toward the ideas and leaders
they felt our country needed, whoever their candidate was. In.
the process, they put money back into national and local,
and, most importantly, American businesses at a time when
they most needed it. How many more layoffs would we have
seen without those ad dollars being spent? Consider that.

Young people are inconsiderate

We arrived at the Cocoa Playhouse at 1:30 (p.m.) to attend a
production of "Peter Pan." We stood in line because the doors
don't open until 15 minutes before the play starts.
There are limited places for people to sit and the elderly
usually get the benches. The bench nearest the door was
occupied by a middle-aged couple, a young mother and three
children ages 3-7. We watched a woman walking with two
canes (forced) to stand. A woman on a walker came by and
the middle-aged couple got up and gave her their seat. Two
other handicapped women laboriously approached the line
and leaned against the wall supported by two friends. The
mother on the bench just let her kids sit. Just before the doors
opened one child got up and immediately the handicapped
woman headed for the seat. The other two kids just sat there
until the doors opened.
Do not bail out auto makers

Let capitalism work. Let businesses that are unwilling to
adapt to changing needs go out of business. If the U.S. auto
makers went out of business, they would be split up and
bought out. Currently they are run by CEOs who simply have
no clue. Auto workers are paid hourly wages 10 times the
minimum wage. Let the auto workers be rehired at a reason-
able wage and competent management replace "Mr. No
Clue." That will save the auto industry. You do not reward
incompetence.
In 1972-73, I had my brother's Dodge Charger. It got 8 miles
per gallon. When gas doubled, my father offered to buy me
another car. I wanted something small, like aVolkswagon, but
the U.S. auto makers were crying "buy American," so my
father bought me a Plymouth Duster. It promised 18-22 mpg,
but I got half that; 12 mpg on the highway at 55 mph. Other
Americans also decided to support American industry and
bought U.S. autos, so the auto spokesmen came out and said,
"See, Americans want the bigger cars."
They never had a clue.
My next car was a Honda Civic; the next, a Honda Accord. I
thought the best thing that I could do for America was to send
Detroit a message they could understand. It was the inability
of the CEOs of the American auto companies to comprehend
the needs of the public that opened the doors to foreign com-
petition. They refuse to give us choices. Gas guzzlers only. No
electric. No quality economy cars. No hybrids. No alterna-
tives. The bigger the better.
Americans are hurting. Americans have hours cut, jobs
lost, homes foreclosed. In no way should money come out of
our paychecks to bail out incompetents who are screwing up
the American economy. I always suspected that the oil com-
panies paid U.S. auto manufacturers to continue making gas
pigs. Now our economy depends on Arab oil. Even if we could
manage without imported oil, sooner or later, the world will
run out of fossil fuel, yet we are doing nothing to wean our-
selves off oil.
Look at what $70 billion to banks and securities got us.
Nothing. I thought the $70 billion would save the economy.
Instead, one expert explained that it bought the effects of an
air bag. You total your car, the air bag limits the damage, but
doesn't repair the wreck. I don't want to pay $70 billion for a
freaking air bag. I don't want to pay another $25 billion so
more freaking incompetents can pay themselves $25 million
a year for more air bags. No! They cannot do the job. Capital-
ism will work if the government will let it.
There are other solutions. A small business owner would
forgo his own salary to keep his business afloat. Not these
guys. Or, each auto company has more than one plant. Let
them sell one to save the others. That is capitalism. With com-
petent management they can save themselves. Bail-outs just
reward incompetence. This is not the way to go.

Freethinkers? I think not

I laughed out loud when I saw the listing in your calendar
Dec. 5 for the holiday party for atheists and freethinkers Dec.
7 in Melbourne.
Come.again? So, the atheists and freethinkers are having a
holiday celebration? I'm sorry, but that is one of the most
ridiculous things I have ever heard. Webster's New World
College Dictionary lists the origin of the word "holiday" as
Old English, "haligdaeg," or "holy" and "day." combined. If
some of these people are atheists, why are they celebrating
holy days? I'm not saying you shouldn't have a party, but if
you don't believe in anything holy, then why would you call it
a."holiday" party? Why didn't you just call your celebration a
plain old "party" or "gathering?"
It's not very freethinkingg" of you to attach yourself to the
holidays, or holy days, just to have a party.
Freethinkers? Think again.

Colombia is a South American treasure


Children and adults
singing and dancing
on a coal-powered
train.,
Fire-eating, unicycle-
riding acrobats performing
at major road intersections.
Small birds with pastel
blue, dark red and gold-
colored feathers, the beauty
of which was matched by
their songs.
This is how I remember
Colombia.
After a flight of just more
than three hours from Fort
Lauderdale, I arrived at El
Dorado International
Airport in my wife's home-
town of Bogota in late
November.
Bogota, which is the
capital of Colombia, was
founded in 1538 and
colonized by the Spanish. It
sits at 8,600 feet among the
Andean mountains, with a
year-round average high
temperature of about 60
degrees and an average low
of about 45 degrees.
Bogota has more than
seven million residents and
is home to many universi-
ties and museums.
At the National Museum
of Colombia - the country's
largest museum - visitors
can spend hours gazing at
fine art and ancient arti-
facts, including several
mummies. Unlike many
museums in other coun-
tries, visitors are allowed to
snap photos of the displays,
as long as they leave their
camera's flash turned off.
A peaceful tramway ride
to the top of the mountain
called Monserrate delivers
passengers to a 17th
century church and a
panoramic view of Bogotd.
Near the church, vendors
offer deals on backpacks,
hammocks, sweaters and
knickknacks, as well as
snacks such as empanadas,
which are small, fried dough
pastries filled with meat.
Before boarding a train to


Zipaquira, a town about 30
miles north of Bogota,
passengers were enter-
tained by a seven-piece
band that played traditional
Colombian tunes.
The musicians then
entered the train and
continued to perform
music, moving from car to
car during the journey.
Vendors also moved along
the aisles, selling refresh-
ments.
Zipaquird is the home of
the famous Salt Cathedral,
an underground church
built within a salt mine. It
was amazing to walk
through the mine's tunnels
and past many chapels to
the cathedral, where a priest
led a service under a huge
cross.
Many more interesting
experiences awaited me
back aboveground.
One evening, about two-
thirds of the way into a bus
trip to Villa de Leyva - a
small city about three hours
northeast of Bogotd - we
were halted by a group of
Colombian soldiers.
One soldier boarded the
bus and asked all men to
depart and all women to
stay on the bus.
Television images sur-
faced in my mind and made
me uneasy.
But I got off the bus and
tried to act cool. Like the
other men, I put my hands
up and was frisked, then '
was told I could re-board.
Colombian soldiers, in
fact, were stationed all over,
such as at other highway
checkpoints and the
entrances of some towns
and cities, and many of
them carried M-16 rifles.


Staff photo by Tony Judnich
Bogota, Colombia, sits among the Andean mountains,
including one called Monserrate, where this .photo was
taken.


This show of force was in
place because of the
weakening, but still intact,
group of guerillas called the
Revolutionary Armed
Forces of Colombia, or
FARC.
Just three years ago, we
would not have been able to
safely travel to Villa de
Leyva, my father-in-law
said.
Colombia's president,
Alvaro Uribe, has helped
direct the fight against FARC
members, who killed Mr.
Uribe's father in a 1983
kidnapping attempt. The.
government has provided
goats and cows to farmers
in hopes of helping them
make an honest living,
rather than growing coca


crops for FARC, and has-
rewarded people who have
left PARC with civilian jobs
and free educations.
During my trip, I saw
"visit Colombia" commer-
cials on CNN International,
and on bus and train rides I
passed by many farms and
small towns. I often thought
of the efforts of Mr. Uribe
and average Colombians to
reclaim their country.
It is a country worth
saving.
In Villa de Leyva, which
was like the Colombian
version of St. Augustine, we
walked on cobblestone
streets between Spanish-
style homes and businesses.

,L L~t> Save Loot - Go Scoot!
TOR SP Gas and Electric Scooters Starting at $995 A


Paul Lepinskie/staff photographer
Jim Lee, pilot and instructor for Urban Air, guides the plane over Melbourne. The flight
includes powered flight and gliding without the engine.


Urban Air has the ticket to glide


By David Kearns
dkearns@hometownnewsol.com
MELBOURNE - When it
comes to flight, there are
three types of people, said
Jim Lee, sales director and
instructor for Urban Air
USA.
Type 1: You can't stop
them from becoming a
pilot because they simply
have to do it.
Type 2: They enjoy the
ride, but don't necessarily
want to fly the plane them-
selves.
Type 3: They don't want
to have anything to do
with leaving the ground,
ever.
"Sometimes a Type 2 will
get hooked and become a
Type 1, but I've never seen
it go the other way," Mr.
Lee said.
Urban Air gives you that
chance to get hooked in a
glider called the Lambada.
The company, which has;
logged more than a year .of
operation at its hangar,
located at 1415 General
Aviation Blvd., will take
you up in a two-seated
Lambada aircraft and give
you the feeling of soaring.
If the thermals are just
right, Mr. Lee will shut off
the feathering propeller
and the Lambada becomes
a glider.
One-hundred dollars
buys you a half-hour of
airtime, Mr. Lee said.
Urban Air USA has been
in operation for one year,
said Georgia Bostik but it


has been a dream nearly
10 years in the making.
She and her husband,
Josef, run the company
which offers* the, glider
rides over the city of Mel-
bourne and southern Bre-
vard, as well as sells the
Lambada '08 for the
Czechoslovakia-based
Urban Air International.
Josef is from Czechoslo-
vakia. He left his home-
land during the time when
the republic was part of
the Soviet Union to come
to the United States.
He began flying at the
age of 19. Now he flies for
Northwest Airlines in
addition to running the
Melbourne-based compa-
ny.
"Working with Urban Air
is coming full circle for
him," Mrs. Bostik said.
The international air-
craft manufacturer
employs a healthy per-
centage of the town of Usti
Nad Orlici, in the con-
struction of the two-seater
sport model, the Samba,
and the prop-glider, the
Lambada.
The Lambada, which
many of us remember as
, the Brazilian name for the
"forbidden dance," is a
sleek, sexy-looking two-
seater, side-by-side, mid-
wing ultra-light.
The wing span of 42 feet
is extendable to 48 feet fpr
true gliding capabilities,
according to the company.
According to Urban Air
USA more than 110 Lam-


badas have been built,
sold, and are now flying
worldwide.
Urban Air USA has five
employees. They do sell
other model aircraft at the
facility, and they do offer
flight instruction.
But they are offering
more tours above the city
and the county, in the
hopes that more of those
Type 2 personalities out
there will eventually
become Type Is.
"We tailor the experience
to the customer," said Mr.
Lee. "We can deliver a ride
as smooth as you can imag-
ine or even something more
exciting," he said.
Since the Lambada is
made of strong, composite
materials, steep turns are
just fine. However, the thrill
seekers should know ahead
of time, there will be no
inverted maneuvers, Mr.
Lee said.
For her part, Mrs. Bostik
is among the growing num-
ber of south Brevardians
who have -seen south Bre-
vard from the cockpit of an
Urban Air m6del.
"The view is simply amaz-
ing. You can count the sea
turtles in the water near the
inlet, all the islands in the
river. It's just beautiful," she
said.

bourne, or visit them at

Community Based Care toy drive deemed a success this year


By David Kearns
dkearns@hometownnewsol.com
MELBOURNE - People of
different faiths and various
walks of life can come togeth-
er. A toy drive proves it.
It didn't matter if you were
Bahai or Baptist, a waitress or
a rocket scientist, on Tuesday
Dec. 9; if you had a toy to give,
you were welcomed with
open arms.
Employees of EG&G,
Patrick Air Force Base, Mer-
cedes Homes, and Perkins
Family Restaurant of Suntree,
along with volunteers from 16
churches across the county
delivered their toys to Com-
munity Based Care of Brevard
at the offices of Mercedes
Homes on North Wickham
Road.
Generosity filled a room off
the main lobby and lined the
walkway out back in the form
of new bicycles.
The toys will be given to as
many as 400 children within
the foster care system of Bre-
vard County, said Patricia Nel-
lius, CEO of Community
Based Care.
"This is a partnership of
Patrick Air Force Base, aero-
space, community faith
organizations and our busi-
ness partners," said Ms. Nel-
lius. "They are all here to make
the holidays easier for kids in
the foster care community."
At any one time there are as
many as 1,500 children of all
ages in the Brevard County
foster care system. The chil-
dren range from those who
are in homes who are "at risk,"
to foster homes, to children
who have been adopted, she
said.
For a child anywhere within
this progression, holidays can
be especially hard, she said.
There might be issues in the
home requiring limited visita-
tion for one or both parents. A
child may be staying with rel-
atives following a tragedy that
removed the parents altogeth-
er.
Community Based Care
Inc. is a nonprofit organiza-
tion chosen by the Florida
Department of Children and
Families to manage Brevard's
child welfare system.
Community Based Care
also works with children who
have been diverted from the
juvenile justice system, Ms.
Nellius said.



Travel
From page A7
Catholic school children
laughed and teased each
other on their way home
from school, and the smell
of pastries wafted from
cafes that sometimes were
"guarded" by stray dogs.
Occasionally, I remem-
bered that I was a foreigner,
such as when a Colombian
child would stand next to
me to hear me speak
English.
And sometimes, I heard
unfamiliar sounds myself.
During our stay in Villa
de Leyva, I remember being
awakened by the crowing
of a rooster. However, a
rooster near my in-laws'
home outside of Fusaga-
suga, about one hour south
of Bogota, really left its
mark.
This particular bird
sounded like a rusty,
swaying screen door, and
hearing it made me want to
plead, "cock-a-doodle-
don't!"
I was in store for several
treats, though, in my in-
laws' courtyard. There, I
saw many colorful birds I
had never seen before,
including a,hummingbird,
which darted around,
tasting various flowers.
Soon, it was time for me
to fly home. Looking down
from my window seat on
the plane, I saw vast farm
fields of Cuba passing by,
and I thought about
freedom.
Back at the airport in Fort
Lauderdale, I'read the
words, "Welcome to the
United States" near Old


Glory in the inspections
area, and once again I
thought about freedom.
Some things are worth
fighting for.
Keep up the good fight,
Colombia.


"It's a time of anxiety, a time
for change to a new family,
maybe a new culture, or just
waiting for an adoptive
home," Ms. Nellius said. "This
really sends the message that
the people of this county care
about them."
Beverly Lampley, Catholic
Charities regional director of


Brevard County said this
effort is only the beginning of
a spirit of cooperation blos-
soming within the inter-faith
community.
Catholic Charities helped
coordinate the drive.
Now 211 information will
have listings for faith-based
charities so that families that


are at risk can connect with
these organizations, or their
neighbors can find support
for them, she said.
The need for generosity has
grown with a worsening econ-
omy, Ms. Lampley said.
"In the last six months espe-
cially," she said.
The churches that partici-


pated in the drive include, St.
John the Evangelist, Ascen-
sion Lutheran, Mt. Carmel
Missionary Baptist, Divine
Mercy Catholic, Seventh-Day
Adventist, Blessed Sacrament
Catholic, Calvary Chapel,
Friendship Fellowship Unitar-
ian Universalist, Brevard
Hindu Mandir, St. Katherine


Greek Orthodox, Temple
Israel, Bahai Faith, Suntree
United Methodist, Faith Fel-
lowship and the board mem-
bers of Catholic Charities of
Central Florida.

Councilman Mark LaRusso on West


Melbourne: 'Let's talk merger'

GOOD HEALTH!

By David Kearns
dkearns@hometownnewsol.com
MELBOURNE - The tale
of two cities continues.
Call it a proposed merger
or. the latest in a hostile
take-over bid: it all depends
on your point of view.
On Dec. 9 during the regu-
lar meeting of the Mel-
bourne City Council, Coun-
cilman Mark LaRusso said
that the cities of Melbourne
and West Melbourne should
consider merging.
Mr. LaRusso said he was
disturbed after watching the
video of the Dec. 2 meeting
of the Brevard County Com-
mission in which several
West Melbourne council
and staff members spoke in
an attempt to block the city
of Melbourne from annex-
ing the 4,000-acre Douglas
and Carlyle Platt property
west of Interstate 95.
The proposed Platt
annexation would nearly
encircle the Harbor City's
western neighbor.
The issue - effectively at a
stalemate - is set for a joint
discussion between Mel-
bourne, West Melbourne,
the Platt family, the County
Commission and the city of
Palm Bay,
"There was so much dis-
sention around that issue
and there wasn't a lot of
valid information provided
by West Melbourne," Mr.


LaRusso said.
Mr. LaRusso made a
motion which was accepted
by a vote to start the discus-
sions on a proposed merger
of the two cities. The discus-
sion is scheduled to take
place during the February
10 regular meeting.
"I'd like to start vetting it
out in this council," he said.
"It's going to take real
leadership to pull these two
cities together... I want to
see where the leadership
starts and the egos end," Mr.
LaRusso said.
Mr. LaRusso also dis-
cussed a citizens committee
to study the proposal.
Mr. LaRusso's sated goal
would be for the proposed
merger to reach "referen-
dum status by 2010."
Melbourne Mayor Harry
Goode was straightforward
with his views after the
meeting.
When Mr. LaRusso was
asked what the name of the
new city would be the
mayor said with a smile,
"We'd call it Melbourne. You
can live on the east side or
the west side."
West Melbourne Council-
man Mike Hazlett was quick
to respond to the idea on
hearing the news.
Mr. Hazlett opined that
the city of Melbourne needs
to annex its prosperous
neighbor, to take care of
growing debts.


"Our city will never stand
for any action like this, a
hostile takeover from a
debt-ridden city that can't
take care of its own assets
and wants to gobble up its
prosperous neighbor..." he
said in an e-mail statement.
Mr. LaRusso said Dec. 10
he understands the con-
cerns that the city of West
Melbourne has over identity
and self determination.
But the overriding con-
cerns in a worsening econo-
my, the draw-down in local,
state and federal funding for
public projects, as well as
the potential difficulty in
obtaining public bonds, are
all considerations which
made .him think about a
merger.
The dust-up over the Platt
property was the proverbial
"straw that broke the
camel's back," he said.
The legal battles between
the two cities now only take
away from the withering
funds for both cities, he
said.
"Who are we represent-
ing?"
Citing what he calls the
"trifecta of service", he said
the job of good government
includes fire protection,
police protection and offer-
ing utilities at a reasonable
price.
He said the city of West
Melbourne is doing the best
with what they have but


"they could be doing it bet-
ter."
"This is not a power grab.
This is an opportunity to
review the proposal and
study it by a citizens com-
mittee," Mr. LaRusso said.
Mr. LaRusso has no
strategies at the moment
on how such a merger
would take place. Staffing
issues would have to be
ironed out at a later time,
he said.
As far as the identity
issue, Mr. LaRusso said dis-
trict lines would be re-
drawn and council mem-
bers from West Melbourne
might find themselves bn
the new Melbourne City
Council.
Eau Gallie is a good
example of an area admin-
istratively annexed, he said,
without losing its identity.
Eau Gallie voted to become
part of Melbourne in 1969.
"It will always be Eau Gal-
lie," Mr. LaRusso said.
West Melbourne City
Councilman Andrew Jones
has voiced concern that his
city is being systematically
taken over by its eastern
parent.
"I am clearly against this
But open to listening to this
proposal," Mr. Jones said.
Mr. Jones said as it stands
Melbourne has more to gain
in such a merger, while West
Melbourne residents have
more to lose in higher taxes.

Getinto


the spirit

Despite the beckoning
Christmas decora-
tions, menorahs and
Kwanza cards on lawns and
in stores, I was having a
hard time getting into the
spirit of the season until
last week. Usually not a
Grinch, I was beginning to
empathize with Scrooge,
although I didn't go quite so
far as to growl "Bah,
humbug," to store clerks
with their cheery "happy
holidays" greetings.
Perhaps it was the
thought of waiting until
after the holidays to visit
my family. Perhaps it was
the state of my own
finances that do not allow
me to give what I wish I
could give. Perhaps it was
... just plain old me. In any
case, I am recovered from a
case of the "bah, humbugs"
and ready to embrace the
season smiling, greeting
others with my own cheery
"happy holidays."
Several events helped to
prompt my change of heart.
The first was watching
Melbourne Civic Theatre's
production of "A Christmas
Story" by Jean Shepherd,
adapted for the stage by
Philip Grecian. MCT's cast
brings the Christmas
favorite to life with the
;funniest moments mincl u d -
;ed: dad's winning-of the "leg
lamp," mom's culinary
delight of meat loaf and red
cabbage, Ralphie's pink
rabbit pajamas, the flat-tire
profanity scene and, of
course, the repetitious
phrase, "You'll shoot your
eye out,"
Don't miss this family
favorite. The show runs
through the weekend
following Christmas, with
performances Dec. 19,20,
21, 26, 27 and 28. Friday
and Saturday shows are at 8
p.m., Sunday shows are at 2
p.m. The theater is located
at 817 East Strawbridge
Ave., Melbourne, in La
Galerie, between Srraw-
bridge and East New Haven
Avenues. Call (321) 723-
S6935 to reserve tickets or for
information.
A sure-fire way to catch
the holiday spirit is to
attend "Jingle All the Way,"
the holiday show being
presented at Henegar
Center for the Arts, 625 East

Week of 12-19-2008

Aries - March 21-April 19
During the holidays, count
your many blessings. This is a
time for thanksgiving and
sharing. The year has been
both fruitful and challenging.
Your edge is that you never
give up. The rewards far out-
weigh the snags along the
way. Make a list of your
blessings and show your
gratitude for all who have
helped get you safely
through thus far.

Taurus - April 20-May 20
This year has been good.
Next year will be even better.
Just be sure to make wise
decisions rather than hasty
ones. This way natural flow
can. continue without being
sidetracked or stuck on
unimportant issues. Speak
from your heart. Those
around you may not always
agree with you but they will
respect you for your basic
honesty.

Gemini - May 21-June 21
You may not always hear it,
but family and friends hold
you in high esteem. You are
at your best during the holi-
days because of the great
love in your heart. Your
reward is the joy you receive
in the giving. Keep this feel-
ing going as long as you can.
Have a family celebration
during the holidays. This
healing :will carry everyone
through the New Year.

Cancer - June 22-July 22
Strong instincts are your
greatest asset. You were
born with an awesome lov-
ing, giving heart. Your love of
family and friends is legion.
Use this gift to the max dur-
ing the holidays. Show love
every day to someone who
needs a kind word. The New
Year could be one of redis-
covery of certain gifts and tal-
ents you have put on hold.
You are important too, you
know.

Leo - July 23-Aug. 22
There is so much promise for
the New Year. Look at all you
have accomplished in this
one. You are like a race car at
the starting line, rewing up
and ready to roll. The key to
victory is to set your .goal,

race one day at a time. When

focused. You are a proven
winner, you know.

Scopes
From page Bi
Virgo - Aug. 23-Sept 22
See, the lighter touch works.
Slow down the pace, take a
step back and try to relax.
This should be a goal
throughout the year, not just
the holidays. Even though
your life is very busy, give
yourself a treat every so often.
You have earned it. If you
don't do this you won't see it
from others who forget how
special you are. It's OK to
blow your own horn some-
times.

Libra - Sept. 23-Oct 22
Your magic continues to be
strong. Stay grounded in your


main beliefs and refuse to
compromise when you know
the truth. Others around you
may think you are stubborn.
The truth is you know what is
right. The key to peace to fine
communication is to find a
subject of conversation the
other person is interested in
and encourage them to talk.

Scorpio - Oct.23-Nov.21
Refuse to let the New Year
catch you up in too many new
activities at once. Stay focused
on the top three priorities and
let the lesser ones wait Learn
to delegate. Ask help from clos-
est friends when needed. This
honors them and gives you
dues to the direction you
should be going in. Now posi-
tive results will happen.


Sagittarius - Nov. 22-Dec.21
Keep changing and freeing old
outdated habits and attitudes.
You are healthier, more pros-
perous and happy than ever
before. Why? Because of releas-
ing the past and growing new
and better ways. Your vision is
strong. You know what your pri-
orities are. Keep this pattern
going and you will have the
best New Year ever.

Capricomrn - Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Your greatest strength is in the
realm of ideas. You can have
100 new ones, but it doesn't
mean they will translate into
dollars. The key is to psyche
yourself up and work on the
top two or three. Keep encour-
aging others around you to pick
up the slack and work as a
team. Now the world is your


oyster and the sky is the limit.

Aquarius - Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Passion for life is the key to
your continuing success and
happiness. Follow your vision,
take care of your emotional
needs and all other good
things will follow and get
accomplished. Keep your
mind focused on the present
and near future dreams. There
is much positive change and
growth coming your way in
the New Year.

Pisces - Feb. 19-March 20
Your power of choice and dis-


cernment is running very high
right now. This is a great time
to make new plans for the
coming year. Pisces has strong
alignment with other planets
for the next few weeks. You
will see positive results and
cooperation in your personal,
professional and social life.
This is only fair for all you have
done.

sonalized astrology or com-


patibility chart a private read-

you give to someone you love

to attend The American
Nutcracker, featuring the

dance troupe has to be one
of the finest I've seen. They
will perform Dec. 19, 20 and
21 at Cocoa Village Play-
house, 300 Brevard Ave.,
Cocoa. Call (321) 636-5050
to reserve tickets or for
information.
If you are still harboring
the "bah, humbug" blues,
grab the spirit of the season
and explore Brevard.
Happy holidays and the
best to you in the New Year.

DINING & EfETAINMENT


Sabai Thai: Great food, blissful surroundings


By David Kearns
dkearns@hometownnewsol.com
MELBOURNE - In Puer-
to Rico, the word is "che-
vere." In Jamaica, it's "iree."
In Thailand the word for
sated bliss is "Sabai."
And that's just what you
will find at Sabai Thai, a
new restaurant opened last
month at 215 W. Hibiscus
Blvd.
You may remember the
plaza at the southeast cor-
ner of Airport Drive and
Hibiscus Boulevard; the
one with Elmo's Full Ser-
vice Salon? That one. Go to
the corner of the plaza and
there it is. The entire place
has been remodeled with
warm lighting and a new
sushi bar, surrounded by
woodwork.
The establishment has
begun to build a healthy
lunch crowd since the
location is so close to the
off-site parking for Holmes
Regional Medical Center,
just down Hibiscus a few
paces, and Space Coast
Credit Union, which is
right across the street.
Doctors, nurses and
bank tellers come in for
lunch or send someone
down for take-out all the
time, but apparently very
few of these folk know that
the restaurant is also open
for dinner.
Hostess Kiwi Wongpeng
brings out the Thai iced tea
first, a very sweet brand of
tea made chocked with ice-
flecks and cream. It is deli-
-cious.
Sabai Thai is awaiting
approval for a full liquor
license, but it's all about
the food this evening.
Next comes the Tom Yum
Soup. made with mixed
seafood, a delicious broth
of calamari - in Thailand
they call it squid - and
mussels, mixed with red
onions, scallions, cilantro,
tomatoes, lemon grass and
kaffir leaves.
It's very warm and heal-
ing.
Chef Danny Changpeng
brings out something new
he's been working on, Lob-
ster Roll Japanese-style.
Made with one expertly
cooked Florida lobster tail
sliced into sections, each
chunk of lobster is sur-
rounded by Sushi-styled
rice breading, seasoned in
tempuri powder and spe-
cial sauces.
You take each section,
dip it into the soy sauce
then pop it into your
mouth.
Ms. Wongpeng tells me
that her aunt, Rattana
Chamnanpat, and her
mother, Bunphen Sornlai,
have been working very
hard on perfecting the

place and fussing over the
menu -there are more than
120 entrees and appetizers!
- but they want to make
sure people know about
the dinner hours, which
run from 4:30 p.m. 9:30
p.m.,'Monday through Sat-
urday.
Mr. Chanpeng brings out
the Beef Macadamia next.
It's marinated cubes of
beef, stir fried with mush-
rooms, scallions, bell pep-
pers, snow peas and
macadamia nuts served on
a bed of steamed rice.
The customer can
choose between mild,
medium or hot and spicy
tastes.
Mr. Chanpeng said that
the seafood is all locally-
caught.
Any ingredient can be
taken out of a menu item
by request and just about
anything can be added.
One of the excellent ben-
efits of authentic Thai
foods is their emphasis on
herbs and spices, which
include chilis, cumin, gar-
lic, ginger, galangal, basil
and the leaves of the kaffir
lemon and lemon grass.
There was a craze, a
while back, that was all
about antioxidants.
Remember? These are mol-
ecules that slow the oxida-
tion of other molecules,
and thus reduce the pro-
duction of cell-damaging
free radicals in body chem-
istry.
It sounds like those lec-
tures from your chemistry
101 class, but it is true. The
ingredients in Thailand's
number one soup - Tom
Yum- - can actually make
you feel better and help
fight off cold and flu virus-
es.
For a look at some of the
serious science done about
Thai food and antioxi-
dants, visit http://www.cur-
rysimple.com/healthbene-
fits.html.
Question: Have you ever
seen a person from Thai-
land who wasn't cheerful?
No? Then perhaps a
healthy diet has something
to do with it.
Sabai-Thai, authentic
Thai Cuisinre and Sushi Bar,
is located at 215 W. Hibis-
cus Blvd., Melbourne. Dine
in, or take out.
Open Daily Monday
through Saturday, 11 a.m.
to 2:30 p.m. for lunch and
4:30 to 9:30 p.m. for dinner.

Don't be a turkey! Make ham this Christmas holiday


Hello smart shoppers;
it's almost here.

. For my Christmas dinner,
turkey is never an option.
Recipes I have given for rib
roast, lamb, lasagna, etc. are
great choices.
Two more dinner sugges-
tions are fresh ham and
Virginia ham. Fresh ham is a
ham that has not been
smoked or cured. It is less
expensive and tastier than
loin of pork.
There is no Virginia hamn
that can compare to my late
husband's recipe and
smoked hams are about $1 a
pound; I preferthe shank
half, bone in.

FRESH HAM
serves 10 or more

Ask the butcher to bone
and tie the ham. Save the
bone for a special occasion
spaghetti sauce (adds great
flavor). By removing the
skin and the fat you will
have a wonderful, lean roast
pork.
For a special treat, have
the butcher bone the meat
and leave the skin (rind) on.
It will become crisp and
delicious, albeit loaded with
fat.
Either way, the recipe is
the same.

ham

By Tammy Roberts

Access to more than 500

services is right at the fin-
gertips of residents in Bre-
vard County and beyond.
Since 2001, 2-1-1 Brevard
has kept residents connect-
ed to their community
through a free 24-hour help
service..
By simply dialing 2-1-1
from any phone, customers
are hooked up with one of
20 highly trained staff mem-
bers and given referrals and
information regarding a
variety of local services,
ranging from crisis manage-
ment to hurricane pre-
paredness.
"About 40 percent of our
calls are from people who
are having challenges meet-
ing basic needs, whether it's
issues with housing, mort-
gage payments, paying a
utility bill or putting food on
the table," said Libby
Donoghue, executive direc-
tor of 2-1-1 Brevard. "We
also get a fair number of
calls related to mental
health. We provide informa-
tion and referrals and are
also trained in crisis and
suicide prevention."
Other services within the

child and family abuse,
bereavement, birth certifi-
cates, flu shots, Medicare
and mentoring programs.
The organization also part-


ners with the county's
emergency management
service to provide disaster
response.
2-1-1 Brevard is a non-
profit organization that is
part of a national informa-
tion service program creat-
ed in 1997. The Brevard
branch was the first of its
kind in the state of Florida
to open and the seventh
nationally.
As of now, 234 million
Americans have access to
the program through 244
active 2-1-1 systems cover-
ing 48 states plus Washing-
ton, D.C., and Puerto Rico,
according to the Web site,
www.211.org.
In Florida, there are cur-
rently 16 2-1-1 call centers
throughout 57 counties, Ms.
Donoghue said.
The 2-1-1 service can be
accessed through cell
phones, as well. For those
who are unable to connect,
Ms. Donoghue advised cus-
tomers to contact their
service provider in order to
be hooked up to the 2-1-1
network.
Funded through United
Way, federal and communi-
ty grants and direct dona-
tions, the organization has
earned accreditation from
the Alliance of Information
and Referral Systems, the
American Association of
Suicidology and the Florida
Agency for Health Care
Administration.

devastating hurricane sea-
son and a sluggish econo-
my, Brevard 2-1-1 has seen a
huge increase in calls this
year, Ms. Donoghue said.
"We've had more than
6,000 phone calls and 1,000
visits to our online database
so far this year," she said.
"We've seen a tremendous
increase."
In addition to the basic
information service net-
work, 2-1-1 Brevard also
operates a free senior call
line.
For more than 20 years,
Brevard's Sunshine Service
has provided seniors -and
homebound individuals
with a free daily phone call.
A Sunshine Service repre-
sentative contacts the resi-
dent on a daily basis to
check his or her well-being
and to help them gain
access to local services
when needed.
If a problem does occur,
Sunshine representatives
have direct access to emer-
gency medical care, police
and a listed emergency
contact.
"The Sunshine people
are caring, helpful and
friendly," said Patricia
Morris, a longtime Sun-
shine Service client.
"They make you feel as
though someone truly
cares about your well-
being."
Ms. Morris is one of
about 30 residents who
have signed up for Bre-
vard's Sunshine Service.
Currently, the service is

grows, it is becoming dif-
ficult for the organization
to fund the program, Ms.
Donoghue said.
"I wish we could pro-
vide daily contact for all
who would like to take
advantage of the service,"
she said. "But we are driv-
en by donations. The need
is there because for some
of our customers, this is


the only contact they have
on a daily basis."
Ms. Donoghue, who has
been with the organiza-
tion for more than 20
years, said that while
most nonprofits usually
cover one specific service,
2-1-1 Brevard covers a
multitude of local servic-
es.
"One thing that really
appeals to me in this


position is that we can
touch so many different
people in so many ways,"
Ms. Donoghue said. "We
really get a true sense of
what our community has
to offer. It's nice to be in
the middle of that infor-
mation hub."

Growers excited about bountiful crop


By Jessica Tuggle
jtuggle@hometownnewsol.com
Tropical Storm Fay's del-
uge of rain may have dam-
aged homes and flooded
some areas of Florida for
weeks, but citrus growers
in the Indian River Citrus
District announced their
crops are proving to be of
exceptional quality as a
result.
"Our great tasting grape-
fruit is considered the
'Rolls Royce' of fruit," said
Doug Bournique, execu-
tive vice president of the
Indian River Citrus League
in a press release.


"Due to heavy rains dur-
ing Tropical Storm Fay this
fall, our current crop is
even larger and juicier
than usual, with an inter-
nal eating quality second-
to- none," he said.
Grapefruit from the Indi-
an River Citrus District is
known around the world
for having thin skin and a
high sugar content.
The district covers about
200 miles, stretching from
Daytona to West Palm
Beach. Seventy percent of
Florida's grapefruit is pro-
duced in the district.
Mr. Bournique expects
that 15 million cartons of

grapefruit will be shipped
to 24 countries. Japan is
the largest consumer of
Indian River Citrus.
"Japan has been a great
trading partner since the
70s, and they've been our
biggest export with 8 to 10
million cartons each year,"
said Mr. Bournique.
Each carton weighs
about' 40 pounds and
holds about 40 grapefruit,
Mr. Bournique said.
While 15 million cartons
is not a large increase in
amount of fruit packed
and sold, the quality of the
fruit this year will be much
higher than in recent
years.
"The hurricanes of 2004
and 2005 really threw the
trees way off of their
cycle," said Mr. Bournique.
"Being stripped of their
leaves two years in a row,
then going through some
drought really took them
off of their rhythm," he
said.
With early maturing
crops this year, growers are
very optimistic about the
rest of the year, but the
freeze season is fast
approaching.
"In the late 80s, that was
the last time we really had
a bad freeze. One of those
once in a hundred year
freezes,", said Branrtey
Schirard, president of the


Citrus League and owner
of Schirard Citrus.
"So far, so good this year;
we're hopeful that it does-
n't happen again this year,"
said Mr. Bournique.
The nearly 1,000 .grow-
ers, 22 packing houses and
145,000 commercial acres
of fruit contribute an eco-
nomic impact of $1.2 bil-
lion to the state, said Mr.
Bournique.
Over the last 25 years,
the market and production
of fruit has changed dra-
matically, said Mr. Schi-
rard.
"In the 90s, we were
pushing 50 million in ship-
ping and now you see our
estimates at 15 million,
though there could be
more, maybe up to 20 mil-
lion in production," said
Mr. Schirard.
"Now that there's a break
in the unfortunate calami-
ties that have been hap-
pening, we who are still in
the business have got to
grow the quality grapefruit
that we had been in our
heyday," he said.
"There's nothing perfect
about this, but those of us
who are still in it, we're still
working very hard," said
Mr. Schirard.

Smoke-free hospitals are now standard in Brevard County


By David Kearns
dkearns@hometownnewsol.com
MELBOURNE -You're vis-
iting Aunt Midge, who is
having her hip done. You
want to nip outside for just a
wee puff of tobacco.
"Not on hospital
grounds," say all the signs
on the walls.
What's this? More evi-
dence of the rise of a Dra-.
conian, anti-smoking police
state?
* If so, the hospitals are all
in on it together in Brevard
County, banning smoking
from their properties, up
and down all 72 miles of the
Space Coast as of Nov. 20.
'From administrators to,
nurses to oncologists on
staff, health care providers
say this is the right move if a
hospital truly means to pro-
mote good health.
The American Lung Asso-
ciation is so jazzed about
this they are handing out
their highest honor to those
who participate, institutions
like Health First, who
received their award from
the association on Nov. 20.
"This is the biggest single
contribution we can make
to our community in terms
of health care," said Mike
Means, chief executive offi-
cer of Health First, as he
received the award from
area representative, Deb
Davis.


The award is the familiar
Cross of Lorraine, the same
rose-red, double cross they
used to honor those who
had fought tuberculosis
after World War I; the same
cross that dates back to Joan
of Arc, and even further
back the time of the Cru-
sades, said Eric B. Gray, area
executive director of the
American Lung Association
of Florida.
Get it? It's a noble crusade,
because smoking is consid-
ered evil; because it kills
folks, as many as 1,200 peo-
ple per day across the coun-
try, according to Lynette
Fodor, Tobacco Prevention
Specialist of the Brevard
County Health Department.
From Cape Canaveral
Hospital to Palm Bay Com-
munity Hospital, Health
First has gone the extra mile
to put out the message with
signs; bright blue with white
lettering.
"Obviously, there will be a
learning curve for the com-
munity and our employees,"
said Elliot Cohen,
spokesman for Health First
in Rockledge.
His organization has been
rolling out the program to
their employees for the last
year, he said.
If statistics for the health
care community mirror the
general population, as many
as 15 percent of Health
First's 6,000 workers smoke,
said Mr. Cohen.


Some of those employees
opted for one, or all four, of
the hospital's hour-long
classes. They switched to
gum, they worked with
patches, he said.
At the current time,
employees will be dissuaded
through conditioning, not
penalties. Visitors who are
found puffing near the signs
will be given a card, remind-
ing them of the hospital's
new policy, he said.
"Many employees have
taken this as an opportunity
to do- something they've
always wanted to do. They
quit," said Mr. Cohen.
Mr. Cohen didn't specify
how much Health First has
spent on the campaign.
There is an associated
benefit to the hospital in
terms of increased produc-
tivity that was not the rea-
son for getting involved in
this.
"Obviously, there is a cost
to this, but this wasn't a
business decision. This is
something that we needed
to do from a public health
perspective," Mr. Cohen
said.
The historical trend of
increased productivity with
healthier workers is a "side
benefit," he said.
Lisa Crites, associate
director of media strategy
for Wuesthoff, agreed that
given the trend toward
smoking in the general pop-
ulation, 15 percent of the


company's 2,645 workers do
smoke.
"The new program will
not only provide a healthi-
er atmosphere for patients
and family members, but
will improve the health and
productivity of our
employees," Ms. Crites
said.
Eric Lazlo, a cashier for
Health First, is all for it.
"I have asthma. Now I
don't have to worry about
where I sit, where I go, I'm
not going to run into it," he
said.
Ms. Fodor said quitting
will not be easy for some of
the staff, nor the general
public, which is her goal:
adult cessation.
"The average is seven
attempts before (quitters)
are successful. The good
thing about our program is
we are allowed to talk
about relapse," Ms. Fodor
said.
Patti Donahue, director
of oncology for Holmes
Regional Medical Center in
Melbourne, said; "We've
been encouraging (our
nurses) to quit. If they
need a break we send them
to the gift shop to buy the
gum," she said.
For more information
about how to quit smoking,

(321)693-9243 or e-mail
her at

Commission ponders fee moratorium


By Tony Judnich
Judnich@hometownnewsol.com
A moratorium on Bre-
vard County-assessed
commercial impact fees
could help attract new
businesses to the area.
That was a suggestion,
County Commissioner
Andy Anderson put forth
at the commission's Dec. 2
meeting.
"I think it's- imperative
the county be in front of
other counties in encour-
aging commercial growth,"
said Mr. Anderson, who
owns Space Coast Superior
Services in Palm Bay. "In
order to be in front of the
others, we have to be
attractive to large and
small businesses."
Mr. Anderson didn't
specify how long he would
like the fee moratorium to
last, but he said it "would
encourage businesses that
the best place to be is
Florida's Space Coast."
While all of his fellow
commissioners did not
immediately agree on a fee
moratorium, they
approved having county
staff study the issue and
complete a. report on
impact fees, possibly by
January.
The county's commer-
cial impact fee rates vary,
depending on a property's
land-use type. For exam-
ple, in 2007, the owner of a
movie theater might have
been assessed more than
$600 and the owner of a
gas station might have
been assessed just more
than $100 in correctional
facilities impact fees, in
addition to other impact
fees.
Commissioner Robin
Fisher said he would like
to find out whether a fee
moratorium would jeop-
ardize any of the county's
capital projects. And
Chuck Nelson, the com-
mission's chairman, said
he didn't think a moratori-
um was necessary.
"We could look at busi-
nesses being allowed to
pay the fees over time"
instead of all at once, he
said.
But Commissioner
Trudie Infantini said the
owners of commercial
structures "already pay a
disproportionate share of
property taxes" because -
unlike residential property
owners - they do not
receive property tax
exemptions.
"Hitting them with


impact fees ... seems
unfair to me," Mrs. Infanti-
ni said.
The "Wal-Marts and Tar-
gets of the world" do not
need relief from impact
fees, but small businesses
do, Commissioner Mary
Bolin said.
Stephen Swanke, plan-
ning manager in the coun-
ty planning and zoning
office, estimates the coun-
ty could 'collect $Y.9 mil-
lion in impact fees on new
commercial development
this fiscal year, which
began Oct. 1 and ends
Sept. 30, 2009.
"Of that amount, $1.7
million would be collected
in transportation impact
fees from the unincorpo-
rated areas of Brevard
County and all of the
cities, except Melbourne
and Palm Bay, which have
their own transportation
impact fee programs," Mr.
Swanke said in an e-mail
to Hometown News.
He said about $180,000
would be collected in
emergency medical servic-
es impact fees and correc-
tional facilities impact fees
in the unincorporated
areas and all of the
cities. The remainder
would be collected in


"I think it's imperative the county be in front of
other counties in encouraging commercial
growth. In order to be in front of the others, we
have to be attractive to large and small busi-
nesses.'

Commissioner Andy Anderson
Brevard County Commission


fire/rescue impact, fees,
which would be collected
in the unincorporated
areas, the city of West Mel-
bourne and the towns of
Melbourne Village and
Palm Shores.
"Impact fees must be
used to expand the capaci-
ty of the service for which
they were collected," Mr.
Swanke said. "They cannot
be used to fund operations
or maintenance."
Transportation impact
fees can be used to pur-
chase additional road
rights-of-way, construct
new lanes and turn lanes,
install new or upgraded
traffic signals and' make
similar improvements that
increase capacity, he said.
"Correctional impact
fees are used to expand the
capacity of the Brevard
County Detention Center,"


.Mr. Swanke said. "Fire/res-
cue and emergency med-
ical services impact fees
are used to purchase addi-
tional fire fighting vehicles
and ambulances and con-
struct new stations."
