Robbery Suspects
arrested
WEST MELBOURNE -
Two suspects were arrested
Feb. 3 in connection with as
many as seven armed rob-
beries in a combined effort
of the police departments
of Melbourne, West Mel-
bourne and Palm Bay.
According to officials
from all three agencies, the
suspects Stephen Shawn
Messier, 22, and Josiah
Frederick McKessey, 19,
both of West Melbourne,
were apprehended shortly
after 1 a.m. on Tuesday Feb.
3, at a residence at 255 West
Lalia Drive, West Mel-
bourne.

VIERA- School officials say the Bre-
vard County School Board has
already pared down the district's $1
billion budget, twice.
And yet...
"Everything is still on the table (for
cuts)," said communications director
Christine Davis on Feb. 2.
Where to cut from the shrinking
budget when, as of July 31, the school
board had already envisioned taking
out line items for new text books,
new school buses, and some trans-
portation programs within their ten-
tative budget for the coming year.
The school board was scheduled to
vote on an updated list of areas to
cut, which was unavailable to the
Hometown News but set for release at


the Feb. 10 school board meeting
after press time.
Richard DiPatri, schools superin-
tendent will host a Brevard Schools
Town Hall Meeting from 7 to 9 p.m.,
Feb. 23 at the Maxwell King Center
for the Performing Arts so parents,
students and teachers can share their
views about the currently proposed
cuts with state lawmakers before
they return to Tallahassee.
As of press time, one program on
the potential chopping or trimming
block was science research.
A cut to any number of budgets
affecting school supplies for materi-
als, computers and science chemi-
cals will negatively impact the
$250,000-a-year program, making it
emblematic of all programs.
Science research puts more than
800 students into science fairs


around the county, t
said Ginger Davis, a
resource teacher and -.r
science fair coordi-
nator for the dis-
trict.
They go on to
state, national and
international
competitions,
she said.
That investment might
seem like a lot to some, said Mrs.
Davis, but consider that Florida Tech
passed out about $780,000 in schol-
arship money for the South Brevard
County science fair presenters on
Jan. 31 at Palm Bay High School.
The scholarships went to area high
school juniors and seniors. Thirteen
winners received $20,000 each, while
13 others received $40,000 each to be


put
toward a four-
year degree at the college.
"They've never made such a large
contribution before," Ginger Davis
said.
A fifth-grader could tell you that
the prograin has just paid for itself
three times.

WEST MELBOURNE -
Karen Kuzma drives from
house to house in the'West-
brooke subdivision, replay-
ing a battle tape.in her mind
from Tropical Storm Fay.
Here, where the battle
began; before the storm
entered Brevard County,
where one neighbor spent
the better part of Aug. 19
without sleep, using a rented
pump to keep his home and
those of four neighbors from
flooding.
Here, along southeast Ven-
tura Circle; where the battle
was lost as of Aug. 20 for
many homes in that area,
when the water crossed over
an uneven dike between
Westbrooke and an adjoining
subdivision to the south,
flooding all the way through
living rooms, spilling into
streets.
And here again, at her own
home; where three weeks
after Fay she and her hus-
band, Ron, still had neigh-
bors living with them.
"This last year has been a
nightmare for me as presi-


dent of the homeowners
association; a nightmare."
Mrs. Kuzma said she still
does not have the answers to
questions she has been ask-
ing since Fay came to town
and left a sense of uncertain-
tyin their lives.
More than 70 homes and
lots were flooded, according
to her information.
In October, the City Coun-
cil of West Melbourne dis-
cussed the problem of Fay's
flooding and vowed to con-
vene a group of professionals
who may have answers as to
why during Fay, the area
between Calvary Chapel to
the west and Hollywood
Boulevard to the east experi-
enced flooding levels that
were not seen in the history
of the community, even dur-
ing 2004, when hurricanes

of each other.

A favorite fairytale comes to life with a fairytale ending


Local children and their families
to attend Cinderella's wedding


By Tammy Roberts
Roberts@hometownnewsol.com
At one time or another,
just about every little girl has
dreamed of a fairytale wed-
ding.
This Valentine's Day, the
young at heart from
throughout Brevard County
can experience the magic as
Cinderella, one of the most
beloved characters of all
time, says "I do" to her
Prince Charming.
Already on the guest list to
celebrate the big day are the
couple's closest friends:


Sleeping Beauty, Belle, Snow
White, Ariel and let's not for-
get, Cinderella's Fairy God-
mother.
The two-hour event Feb.
14 at the David R. Schechter
Community Center in Shtel-
lite Beach is the brainchild of
Jill Nelson, youth program
instructor for the Satellite
Beach Recreation Depart-
ment and mother of four.
"I actually came up with
the idea for the party based
on my daughters' love of
weddings," Ms, Nelson said.
"They've been to a few and
just loved them. I think most


little girls do. And to have
Cinderella as the bride
makes it that much more
magical."
Since 2001, Ms. Nelson has
put her imagination to work
and created five other annu-
al children's events at the
community center, includ-
ing Odyssey of the Sea,
Santa's Party, Cowboy Party,
Water Fun Day and Teddy
Bear Picnic, where children
are encouraged to bring
along their own teddy bears.
But Cinderella's Valentine's
Day Wedding Party was her-
first.
To prepare for the ceremo-
ny, children at the event will
have their hair and nails
done by the Ladies of the
Court and create a tiara or


magic wand as a keepsake
craft.
After the vows have been
said, guests will travel to the
Grand Ballroom, where they
will learn dance steps with
the royal family and enjoy a
delectable wedding cake,
punch and chocolate foun-
tain with a variety of treats
for dipping.
In the past, many of the
characters for Ms. Nelson's
events have been played by
members of the Satellite
High School Drama Depart-
ment, while Satellite Beach
resident Olga Clarke, a local
seamstress, has designed
many of the costumes. Ms.
Nelson is still determining
what group will help out this
year.


"Cinderella is getting married on the most
romantic day of the year '

Jill Nelson
Youth program instructor
Satellite Beach Recreation Dept


Ms. Nelson also encour-
ages children who attend the
event to dress in costume
like their favorite Disney
character.
"Cinderella is getting mar-
ried on the most romantic
day of the year," Ms. Nelson
said. "Children and their
families are encouraged to
come and be a part of the
guest list."
Cinderella's Valentine's
Day Wedding Party will be


Feb. 14 from 2-4 p.m. at the
David R. Schechter Commu-
nity Center, 1089 S. Patrick
Drive, Satellite Beach.
Admission is $15 for chil-
dren age 2-10 and $7 for
children and adults 11 or
older. All children must be
accompanied by an adult.

Hometown Hero a friend to the homeless


Riverside Bank
recognizes
volunteer for
work with needy
By David Kearns
dkearns@hometownnewsol.com
She was told that she had
to come into her local River-
side Bank branch on U.S. 1
and sign a new check card
for her non-profit group,
The Coalition for the Hun-
gry and the Homeless.
But that wasn't the real
reason bank representatives
asked the coalition's execu-
tive director, Ginger Fergu-
son, to stop by the branch.
Ms. Ferguson was being
honored as a Hometown
Hero Feb. 4 for her 19 years
of tireless service to the
community of Brevard.
Riverside Bank's Cynthia
L. Tibbetts, a relationship
banker, Kimberley J.
Durnin, branch office man-
ager, and Deanne Tripp, a
bank relations manager for
the central and north Bre-
vard area presented Mrs.
Ferguson with a $500 dona-
tion for the charity, and a
gift basket from A Basket
Case, of Rockledge as well as
a gift certificate to Norman's
Raw Bar and Restaurant.
"Many lives have been
impacted through the tire-
less efforts of Mrs. Ferguson
and her dedicated staff at
the coalition for the Hungry
and Homeless," said Ms.
Tibbetts. "We have chosen
to honor her passion and
dedication to the communi-
ty and those individuals
who. otherwise may still be
lost, alone and living on the
streets."

made the trip to Riverside

ny honoring their leader.
The coalition has been
involved in WIN Housing,
which provides homes to
low-income families, and
Victory Village, of Titusville,
which are housing units
designed to help veterans in
need.
They have also been
instrumental recently in
providing data to Brevard
County on the number of
homeless and hungry in the
county.
"This was such a sur-
prise," said Ms. Ferguson. "It
is so nice to be recognized. It
is definitely a team effort
what we do here, especially
now. We need all the help we
can get. We have 550 calls a
month. It's especially bad


now with all the foreclo-
sures," she said.
The mission of the coali-
tion is to provide housing
for the very low income, and
moderate-to-low income
residents who are down on
their luck.
Volunteer Judith McLuck-
ie said, "What we are seeing
now is families with chil-
dren. These are families who
have lost their homes.
There's a lot more of that
now.
The group has recently
gone into a homeless camp
near Merritt Square Mall,
said Mrs. McLuckie, to look
after families in the camp,
see to their needs and try to
determine if they can find
shelter for them.


"These aren't bad people.
They need our help," Mrs.
McLuckie.
Mrs. Ferguson got into
charity work in 1991 while-
watching the struggles of a
neighbor who was a caregiv-
er on a fixed income, said
Ms. Tibbets.
She wanted to do some-
thing to help. By 1992, she
was named the executive
director of the charity, a post
she has held ever since.
"She's been here since the
beginning," said Dennis
Winfield of WIN Housing in
Cocoa.

There are former Brevard science researchers at Johns Hop-
kins Research Institute and the Los Alamos National Observa-
tory.
And consider the case of only one former researcher, Alap
Shah, a student who began his investigation on genetics at
Stone Middle School.
Science research followed Alap into high school, where he
continued the program. It was part of his transcripts for getting

into college.
In 2003, Mr. Shah graduated from Harvard University. He's
now a hedge fund analyst at Viking Global in New York City.
And the man who helped coach, guide and cajole him
through science research?
According to several who spoke to Hometown News including
Christine Davis, science research teacher Richard Regan's budget
might get a trim if legislators don't listen on Feb. 23. He might lose
some of his stipend, or a cost-saving edict to take on more teach-
ing courses might force him to focus some of his efforts away
from science research. It's all on the table.
"We're all on pins and needles until Feb. 10," said Jared Camp-
bell, also a research teacher at Stone Middle School.
Rick Fleming, principal of West Shore Junior/Senior High
School, couldn't be more proud of his students, five of whom can
claim the $40,000 scholarship, three of whom can claim the
$20,000 scholarship.
The program began three years ago with just six students under
'the direction of science research teacher Paula Ladd. It has grown
to include teachers Sherie Jenkins, Kathy Gilio, Delilah Naraez
and Tom Fritz, and now includes 70 students.
The stipends and other supplemental expenditures for equip-
ment and supplies have helped make it happen, said Mr. Flem-
ing.
And while the program will likely survive the cuts, it might be
diminished in scope, he said.
"That concerns us. As well as the fact that at the state level, they


are talking about reducing the funding per pupil, which is uncon-
scionable," Mr. Fleming said."The state is going to have to decide
where all of our priorities should be."
Teachers like Ms. Ladd are obviously not in this to get rich, he
said.
"The stipend is a nice incentive for these teachers. If you count
the hours they put in it works out to like 48 cents per hour. It's a
classic example of someone not in it for the money," he said.
But if the stipends are cut, so too goes some of the incentive to
teachers involved in the program.
The problems of a statewide economic shortfall have resulted
in some barbed letters from Mr. DiPatri to State Sen. Mike Hari-
dopolos.
The school board was informed in early January that Sen. Hari-
dopolos would be unable to attend the Feb. 23 meeting. This dis-
pleased the school's superintendent.
"While I have read on numerous occasions you have said our
schools can continue to make numerous reductions to education
budgets and not affect the quality of education, the school board
and I are particularly interested in talking to you about this
point...." wrote Mr. DiPatri to the senator on Jan 13.
"You look at how many kids can go on to earn a living playing
professional sports and it's maybe one in 2,000. But here in this
county in a program such as this one, you're looking at perhaps
one in four, who can go on and earn a living as an engineer or a
scientist."
Standing beside Mr. Campbell as a judge at the Science Fair
was Brevard Clerk of the Court Scott Ellis.
Mr. Ellis said some of the decisions the school board has made
over the past three years are to blame for the need for cuts at this
time.
For one example Mr. Ellis questioned the need for continuing
plans and building on Heritage High, now that the mortgage cri-
sis disrupted the real estate market.
Still, he said some programs, including athletics at the ninth
grade level, and the science fair need to remain and not be
touched.
"The science fair is extremely valuable to Brevard. Our district is
known for being successful. We have students who are practicing
professionals who science research has helped pave the way for
their careers," Mr. Ellis said.
Ginger Davis agrees with him about the science fair. It shows
children how to actually achieve something.
Failure, getting knocked off the horse and persisting are part of
the scientific method, she said.
Another program that may experience the pain of the cuts is
the new International Baccalaureate program at Melbourne High
School.
High School Principal James Willcoxon said he was unaware of
any planned changes to the IB program, but there may not be
transportation for IB students from other parts of the county to
Melbourne High next year.
"That will be a problem for the students whose parents work
and can't take them," he said.
Melbourne High is at a crucial stage of the program, which
allows students to compete at an internationally accepted stan-
dard level.
Budgets for more advanced lab equipment, and special training
for teachers involved in the program could be trimmed.

Red Cross launches urgent appeal for disaster victims


Space Coast Chapter needs donations
to continue aiding residents


By Tammy Roberts
Roberts@hometownnewsol.com
A million things were run-
ning through Leonard
Guida's mind that morning
when record-breaking rain-
fall and heavy winds sur-
rounded his Melbourne
home.
Through freezing cold
floodwaters, emergency
personnel evacuated Mr.
Guida from the Lamplighter
Village mobile home com-
munity and took him to a
local shelter run by the


Space Coast Chapter of the
American Red Cross.
After a week at the shelter,
Mr. Guida returned home to
find his new vehicle flooded
and 42 inches of water in his
home; resulting in thou-
sands of dollars worth of
damages.
"The mold and mildew
caused by the water damage
destroyed the entire back of
my house," said Mr. Guida,
who moved to the commu-
nity 12 years ago. "Every-
thing had to be replaced
from the paneling to the car-

pets and all of the furniture
in my den. The assistance
from the Red Cross was the
only thing that got me
through it all."
When Mr. Guida first
arrived at the shelter, he was
shaking, feeling both help-
less and cold from the freez-
ing waters. A volunteer
wrapped him in a Red Cross
blanket, bringing him need-
ed comfort and peace of
mind.
"They did more than just
keep me warm," Mr. Guida
said. "They provided me
with food, a place to sleep
and so many different
resources to help me get
back on track. When you're
in that situation, you don't
know what's going to hap-
pen next. They understood
that and helped me get
through it."
Since 1917, the Space


Coast Chapter of the Ameri-
can Red Cross has served as
a beacon of hope for mil-
lions of local residents in
times of disaster and dis-
tress.
In 2008 alone, the organi-
zation opened shelters and
provided meals, clothing
and water to more than
1,000 people affected by the
Palm Bay wildfires and Trop-
ical Storm Fay.
More than 1,700 local mil-
itary personnel and their
families received help with
worldwide emergency com-
munications in the past
year, while hundreds of Red
Cross instructors earned
CPR and first aid training
through the organization.
"All of this has to be paid
for," said Keith Gee, CEO of
the Space Coast Chapter.

ple is that the American Red

American Red Cross


Cross is not government-
funded. In fact, 100 percent
of our local chapter is fund-
ed by individuals and pri-
vate businesses in Brevard
County."
With the current econom-
ic downturn and the geo-
graphical location of the
county, the organization
fears that it will not be fully
prepared to assist in future
disasters big or small.
To ensure this does not
happen, the organization
"launched" its first-ever Red
Cross "Always There" appeal
Feb. 5 at the Kennedy Space
Center Visitor's Complex
with the help of former
astronaut John Fabian.
The six-month-long Red
Cross $500,000 initiative is
the organization's largest
fundraising drive to-date.
"Five-hundred-thousand
dollars may seem like a huge
amount, but if you think
about it, Brevard County has
more than 500,000 resi-
dents," said Lysee Kierstein,
chairman of the chapter's

board. "If each one of us
gave at least $1, we would
reach, and perhaps even
exceed, our goal."
In the last three fiscal
years, the Space Coast chap-
ter has seen a decrease of 25,
15, and 10 percent in year-
to-year donations, Mr. Gee
explained. Last fiscal year
alone, the chapter received
43 percent less donations
from the local community
than it did four years ago.
Between hurricanes, wild-
fires and tornadoes that
result in increased dona-
tions, the organization
works year-round to estab-
lish practice emergency
plans and assist in smaller
disasters during times of
family crises and unexpect-
ed financial situations, he
said.
"Right now, we are in the
middle of tornado and wild-
fire season, and there are
neighbors who just last
week, lost everything they
owned in a fire," Ms. Kier-
stein said.
Jim Stratford of Northrop
Grumman in Melbourne
kicked off the campaign by
presenting the chapter with
a $5,000 donation on behalf
of the defense contracting
corporation.
"As a defense contractor,
we appreciate all that the
Red Cross does for our serv-
ice men and women," Mr.
Stratford said. "Their work is
very important to us, as it
should be to the rest of the
community.

Light my way

We moved down to Florida from New Jersey a few years
ago. We came down to get away from the winter elements
that keep you indoors, turn you into a couch potato and pre-
vent you from getting out during the winter months, espe-
cially. Doctors are always saying we should get out and work
our bodies for health's sake, and that was a part of the reason
we came here also.
How surprised we were to discover that the lighting in this
area of Palm Bay is extremely poor. Traveling down dark
roads at night, it is no wonder more accidents have not hap-
pened. A few times we have seen bike riders with no reflec-
tors on their bikes, (as well as) pedestrians walking on
unpaved sidewalks and crossing the streets and you can
barely see them. Numerous times, we have wanted to take
evenings walks (but) the neighborhoods are entirely too
dark. It is also an inconvenience to have to leave your neigh-
borhood to go to one that offers light and paved streets to its
residents.
Florida should be a place where people should be in good
physical shape, or at least allowed the opportunity to (pursue
good health, and) not only in the daytime. It is as if Palm Bay
believes all of its (residents) go to bed at dusk.
We also noticed that all the places one would like to go in
the evenings near the water or piers are shut down at
dusk. When a person works all day and would like to chill out
and relax or exercise, we are forced to go home, sit in dark-
ness and eat food. The only place for evening and late night
entertainment is Wal-mart. Wow!
I would like to suggest that if Palm Bay cannot afford street
lights (for) its community, perhaps they could afford the
Small street lamps that sit on individual lawns. These lamps
are all along Cogan Drive in the new section. Or perhaps they
could request that homeowners light up the community by
turning on the lights on their houses at dusk. If folks would
turn on the lights on their homes at night, it would make a
beautiful difference in Palm Bay. Does anyone agree ?

Unfairness, again

After having knee surgery, I needed a temporary handi-
capped parking pass during a 12-weelplus time on crutch-
es. With orders from my doctor, I went to my local tag agency
to obtain a temporary parking pass. After crutching approxi-
mately 50 yards from my car to the counter, I was informed
that there would be a charge of $15. For a piece of plastic that
would make my life easier during one of the hardest times in
my life, I was charged. Obviously not working because of my
recent alignment, how was I to pay for these extra unfair fees?
More importantly, why was I charged? After questioning the
tag agency employee, I was joyfully informed that if I needed
an additional temporary parking pass, it would be free. To
add insult to my situation, I was also informed that if I need-
ed a permanent handicapped parking pass, it would be free
as long as I had a doctor's orders.
So let's recap. For a year-long, permanent handicapped
pass there is no charge and for a temporary handicapped
pass there is a $15 fee. When asked how I was to pay for the
charges my options were cash, check or charge. Since getting
to the bank for cash had become a hassle and not having my
checkbook, I decided to pay by credit card. The next thing I
heard made me livid. There was another $2 charge for using a
credit card. My experience with the tag agency went from
obtaining a temporary handicapped pass to spending $17.
Have we become a society where we need to make money
off people (who) need helpthe most? At almost 30 years old,
I've worked for more than 15 years; I've paid my taxes and at
a time of need I'm forced to pay for something that will make
my alignment and healing process easier? It's time to recon-
sider our thinking on not just this situation but myriad topics
that put money as a forefront, especially when people are in a
time of need.

Quit blaming

When something happens in this country, why do you
blame the president? We have governors, mayors and many
other appointed officials (who) should share the responsibil-
ity as well. (Former) President (George W) Bush was blamed
for more things than any other president we ever had and he
never fought back. From the time of Adam and Eve people
always placed blame on someone. We are not to judge others
unless we are perfect and without blame. Let's act like good
Americans and pray for our leaders and our country.

CIRCULATION AUDIT BY

VERIFICATION
as*" -"


Change of venue?

Am I hearing and reading right? Jose Biaz, the infamous
attorney for Casey Anthony, wants a change of venue. Is he
serious or is this a "Saturday Night Live" joke on taxpayers?
There is nowhere in the universe to have her trial. The moon is
probably populated and they have a satellite dish. Everywhere
there is electric power, people know about the mother who
"allegedly" murdered her child. My friend called me from Dal-
las about it. This is just another slap to the already highly-bur-
dened taxpayer making us pay dearly for another jury to
come to Orlando, to feed and house them for who knows how
long. And (I) guarantee the jurors won't be staying at Motel 6.
We taxpayers are losing homes, jobs and life itself and now we
can afford this up and coming debacle? Everyone deserves a
fair trial, I agree. Try her here where she lives, even with people
who are aware of the situation. Everyone is aware. On the
other hand, she has fans who think this is a travesty to even
think she murdered her own child. Maybe they'll get on the
jury and even it out. Wouldn't that be fair? Mr. Biaz is milking
this fame he feels he's achieving. He gets paid we pay him. I
say ship him to the moon.

Check out 'sugar-free' items

SThis is an elderly lady in your own backyard of Melbourne.
I would like to help some people. Being a diabetic myself, I
received several gifts of sugar-free candies and cookies for the
holidays. It says plainly on the front of the package "sugar-
free." When I called my endocrinologist, he said that the alco-
hol sugar is one of the worst sugars that could be put out. In
eating some of this candy, my sugar level went very high. Peo-
ple should read the back of the package before buying the
products "sugar-free" does not mean (it is free of sugar.)

What do you think?

How many people think that it is OK to bomb Israel? I don't
understand all this. Are they stirring up trouble in the United
States? They should not be teaching children such hate.

Be a good neighbor

In response to 'not a good neighbor:' When we first moved
into our neighborhood nine years ago, our neighbors wel-
comed us with cookies and plants and were nice as pie. Since
we have been in the house, they have done nothing but stab
us in the back and call the city of Palm Bay on us. Then they
come crying to us to help them.
What is the world coming to when we bend over to help
others and they (take advantage of us)?

Enough of the Anthony family

I want to agree about the (Casey) Anthony family. We have
so many problems, not just two wars, but problems with the
economy and (yet) for the last five months, all we have heard
on the news is "CaseyAnthony." Do we have to hear this until
next Christmas? Please, enough already; everybody is sick
and tired of it. That woman is going to lie from now on.

What have you done lately?

This is a rant and also a rave to the people who are so critical
of the animal shelters. These places are not pet stores. They
are not veterinary clinics. They are shelters. They take the
unwanted, the strays and the vicious off the streets. Their
funding is nearly at the bottom of the scale. The people who
work there have to be dedicated and have to deal with people
such as you, who are so full of condemnation. There is no such
thing as "potty time" for animals. You can clean up and have to
do it again in 30 seconds. I do not work for a shelter, but I
adopted a dog from the south care shelter a year ago. No, the'
conditions were not ideal. But the people there were honest,
hard-working, and, most of all, caring for these animals. It is a
"shelter." Look up the word. They told me all the reasons why
my pup had been returned and gave me the name of a behav-
ior specialist ifI needed help. I am his fourth, and final, owner.
I am so grateful that the south care shelter kept my pup alive.
Lastly, I would like to ask the critics of these shelters: When
was the last time you donated money to these shelters? When
was the last time you attended a fundraiser? When was the last
time you offered to clean the animals or clean up after them?
Editor's note: Thankyouforyour recent submission to Rants
& Raves. We strive to include varying opinions on a broad spec-
trum of topics, and this controversial issue has stirred the emo-
tions of several readers.
After receiving numerous complaints from the community
regarding the condition ofBrevard County's South Animal Care
and Adoption Center, a taxpayer-funded institution, Home-
town News visited the facility to see if the claims were true. They
do not seem to be, excluding an intense smell generated by ani-
mal waste, which the reporter claimed was "overpowering"and
probably the result of "poor ventilation" at the facility. However,
we have not been able to confirm nor dispel these concerns offi-


cially, as several attempts to contact the Brevard County Ani-
mals Services and Enforcement office have gone unanswered.
We continue to pursue this matter, and will produce a story
regarding this issue, with, or without, comments from those
responsible for the operation of the South Animal Care and
Adoption Center

Perfect solution

Dear legislators: I have the perfect solution to solve the
funding crisis in Florida's education system. Get rid of all
after-school sports. Get rid of all electives in all schools no
music, no art, no physical education, no health, no driver's
ed. Cut them all. Let's get back to the basics: reading, writing,
math, history.

Point is missed

The rant in the Jan. 9 issue got it right and said it much bet-
ter than I can. I agree wholeheartedly. Yes, we must stop
equating legal civil union with the term "marriage." Yes, all
adult people, gay or straight, should have the right to choose
another person with whom to share their lives, without gov-
ernment interference and without prejudice. Gays should
have the legal right to have their partners visit in "family only"
areas of the hospital. They should have the same rights as
legally married men and women.

Technology not kind to baby-boomers

There are a lot of older folks who do not like the Internet
and DVD players and (who) are used to the basic, simple kind
of life. Technology does not seem to be fair to them. (Compa-
nies) bring out new things and get rid of the old things like
typewriters. I wish they would keep the old things for older
people who are used to this and don't want to change. A lot of
VHS tapes have not been converted to DVDs. A lot of movies
are not available in DVD for people to watch. I think technol-
ogy needs to be kinder.

Teachers have suffered

Education majors, college graduates and teachers consid-
ering moving to Florida, I have some advice for you: Go
north of the Florida border to find a job.
Elected officials are taking $4,000-plus raises this year. Bre-
vard County (Public Schools) Superintendent Richard DiPa-
tri) took a $16,000-plus bonus this year. Teachers are having
their salaries frozen and their jobs cut. National board-certi-
fied teachers have lost the opportunity to earn a mentoring
bonus. They have taken a 20 percent pay cut in their annual
bonus. Any schools who have earned money for A-plus
bonuses for student achievement have taken a 20 percent
pay cut from that bonus. You do the math; you probably
won't be able to afford to live here. You probably won't want
to live here. Take it from someone who is stuck here. Florida
is not a good place if you are a teacher. Florida is not the kind
of place where you can afford to raise a family. Florida is not
the kind of place you can afford to pay for a house. Florida is
not the kind of place to pay for homeowners insurance.
Florida is not the place for fair property taxes. Do the math.
Best of luck.
Congratulations on graduating from college. You have
earned it.
Editor's note: Christine Davis, public information officer
for Brevard County Schools responded to this rant as fol-
lows:
Most of the reductions or cuts cited in the e-mail were taken
by the state. For example, the (state) legislature is the one who
cut National Board-Certified Teacher bonuses for mentoring.
If a teacher should have been earning a bonus, the actual cut
taken by the legislature during special session was at least 50
percent and could be more, based on whether or not the gover-
nor vetoes any further cuts. The legislature also cut school
recognition funds, but the cut was 15 percent, not 20 percent
as cited by this individual.
We have not "cut jobs" of teachers. Only district positions,
lost through attrition, have been affected. As I stated above,
the topics raised by this individual are mostly state issues. Per
the constitution, it is the state's paramount duty to fund edu-
cation. Therefore, we encourage individuals to contact their
state offices and legislators (to) address these educational
funding concerns. In an effort to engage our community on
the seriousness of the budget crisis for education, the district
has formed a working coalition of the Brevard Federation of
Teachers, the Brevard Association of School Administrators
and the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades,
Local 1010, to rally our parents, staff members, students and
others to avoid a possible dire situation for the 2009-10 school
year. We are working as partners to attempt to raise the aware-
ness of our legislators to the crisis facing our schools. We have
scheduled a special Town Hall Education meeting for Mon-
day, Feb. 23, from 7-9 p.m., at the Maxwell C. King Center,
3835 North Wickham Road, Melbourne, and we strongly urge
the public to attend.

Using travel as an idea for a fundraiser asy


Many of us are
involved in
fundraising in
some form or another.
Whether you are part of
the planning or participat-
ing in an event, we all pretty
much know why we need to
fundraise: money!
Our churches and schools
(public or private), as well
as local and national
organizations, are in need of
money to function. Those
involved are always looking
for new and clever ways to
raise enough of it.
I recently wrote about
traveling with a group and
how beneficial it can be.
Today I would like to
touch on using group travel
as a fundraising event. This
is very near and dear to my
heart, since most of my
adult life has been involved
with local nonprofit and
charitable organizations,


churches and schools to
help raise the necessary
funds for their individual
needs.
Group travel is a great way
to fundraise. You get the
benefit of traveling with
others and enjoying your
trip, all while raising money
for something that you care
about.
About eight years ago I
created a program through
my office called "travel for a
cause" and it has helped
many local organizations
make money through travel.
I look at it this way:
people travel anyway, so
why not travel for a cause.


This entails a partnership of
sorts between our company
and the organization, not
just for group travel, but any
travel the organization
sends our way generates a
donation.
We have assisted in
fundraising from local high
schools to out-of-state
college alumni groups,
garden and bridge clubs.
Each has grown every year
to include more partici-
pants.
It takes a lot of time and
effort to fundraise and, with
money so tight for most, we
have to be creative in the
process. If you get a group
together and travel at the
same time there is "money
to be had."
There are so many
options for travel, therefore,
giving the organization
creative latitude. You can
create a theme cruise that


gets the attention of more
than your close supporters;
possibly entice a person of
fame or recognition to be on
board to get additional
reservations into your
group. A local artist, musi-
cian, speaker, etc. would
generate interested partici-
pants, therefore creating
more bookings and raising
more money.

The Melbourne Airport
Authority voted Wednesday,
Jan. 21, to approve the lease
of the former FIT Aviation

bourne Airport, he said.
"It is a possibility, we are
looking at some additional
property for a production
facility," he said.
And that could mean as
many as 1,100 new jobs in a
new production facility
within a four-year time
frame, if the company busi-
ness takes off as expected
,said Mr. Fedorko.
Right now, all the compa-
ny needs is a production
facility to create and test
the prototype, which will
require perhaps 40 techni-
cians and engineers.
There will be some coor-
dination with Florida Tech
Aviation in the form of job
opportunities and intern-
ships for aviation students
and engineers from Florida
Tech, he said.
By March, a prototype of
the $5-million aircraft is
expected to be complete.
After certification, the
goal is to create 25 new
planes per year, increasing
to 100 units per year when
business is fully ramped up,
he said.

Travel
From page A9
Group travel, if done right
(choose the best times and
dates of travel, the right
travel company or cruise
line, etc.), can turn into
dollars. Cruises are favored
because of their inclusive-
ness, but certainly any
travel can be turned into a
fundraiser.
A cruise group is based on
a minimum of eight double
occupancy staterooms. A
tour is generally based on a
minimum of 20 passengers
traveling together. This, of
course, is just a rule-of-
thurmband by researching
various ti- l o6ptidns for '
your particular'group, this is
where the expertise comes
in.
Most fundraising groups
really do not cost the
participant any more than it
would if they chose to travel
alone. In many cases, they
get additional amenities as
well. The longer the trip and
the cost, the more money
raised. The biggest issue is
deciding on the where and


propeller executive aircraft.
It has a range of 2,500 miles
at a speed of more than 300
miles per hour.
FIT Aviation is in the
midst of constructing its
own facilities at the central
apron of the airport.
The company will lease
the 14,000 square-foot
hangar, the office and 2 acre
site for an annual charge of
$144,375.
The Airport Advisory
board also voted to re-
instate Melbourne Mayor
Harry Goode as board chair-
man of the committee.
Board member Bill Potter
has been named board vice
-chairman.
Board members also
voted to approve the con-
struction of a 30,000-gallon
aviation gas storage tank.
The contract bid of just less
than $219,000 was awarded
to C and D Construction,
Inc.
According to Airport
Authority staff, the commit-
tee is not expected to meet
again until March.

when. Once that has been
established, it is up to the
organization to get people
excited about it.
The formula for funds
depends on the travel
company used, but as an
example, an organization
that has 50 passengers
sailing on a seven-night
cruise with all passengers
paying $1,000 per person
can actually raise up to
$4,000 depending on the
ship and sailing date.
It is worth the time and
effort you put into it, which
is nothing more than
planning the cruise and
getting the information out
to your supporters.
So the next time you are
asked to help out with
fundraising mention that
you have this greatidea for
a fundraiser. Travel for your
organization, school or
church.

Commission supports 'no-kill' policy


Brevard No Kill Coalition presents
Brevard County commissioners with
7,000 signatures on petition


By Tony Judnich
Judnich@hometownnewsol.com
VIERA It is depressing
to look into the eyes of an
animal, knowing it will be
killed the next day.
That was one of the mes-
sages that Anna Brown, of
the' 1-year-old nonprofit
Brevard No Kill Coalition
Inc., delivered to Brevard
County commissioners at
their Feb. 3 meeting.
Ms. Brown told commis-
'sioners she had a petition
with more than 7,000 signa-
tures of people who support
a "no-kill" policy at the
county's two animal shelters
- the North Animal Care and
Adoption Center in
Titusville and the South'Ani-
mal Care and Adoption Cen-
ter in Melbourne.
Many of the shelters' ani-
mals are "sitting on death
row," she said.
Ms. Brown said 9,632 cats
and dogs were euthanized
in 2007 to make room at the
shelters. The figure repre-
sented 61 percent of the
total number of cats and
dogs taken in at the shelters
that year.
Most of the animals that
were killed, Ms. Brown said,
were healthy treatable or
able to be rehabilitated.
"You wouldn't go to a
homeless shelter and say,
'Let's kill these people,'" said
coalition member Kathleen
Harer, who is the president
of the Cocoa-based Space
Coast Feline Network. "You
look for solutions."
In a report titled, "Brevard
County as a No-Kill Entity,"
coalition members said the
number of animals eutha-


nized annually in the county
totals about 10,000 and that
"high euthanasia rates are
not a shelter problem. They
are a community problem."
Many other counties and
municipalities, such as
Hillsborough County and
Jacksonville, have imple-
mented no-kill policies at
their shelters, coalition
member Debbie Rich told
commissioners.
"I think we all support the
concept of 'no-kill,'" Com-
mission Chairman Chuck
Nelson said. "Our goal is not
to see animals euthanized."
The commission unani-
mously agreed to work
toward implementing a no-
kill policy at the county
shelters.
Commissioner Trudie
Infantini said she has often
visited and assessed the
South Animal Care and
Adoption Center since being
elected to the commission
last November and she has
seen many improvements in
the care of its animals, but
more changes are needed.
She wondered whether
the "no kill for space" Cen-
tral Brevard Humane Soci-
ety could manage both of
the county-funded shelters
better.
She and the other com-
missioners agreed to ask
county staff to draft a report
on the pros and cons of con-
tracting the shelters to a pri-
vate organization.
Commissioners also said
they would create an animal
services working group that
would, among other things,
strive to improve conditions
at the county shelters, and
will assign a paid volunteer


coordinator to the county
Animal Services and
Enforcement Department.
The department's assis-
tant director, Kathy Beatson,
said Feb. 4 that it "has not
really been involved in the
reasoning" for looking into
whether a private group
should run the shelters.
After her visits to the shel-
ters, Mrs. Infantini conclud-
ed they need a change in
management.
"I have received so many
e-mails and have had so
many personal conversa-
tions with (county shelter)
employees," she said Feb. 5.
"They were not allowed to
answer my questions and
were not even allowed to
talk to me. That element of
distrust has to go away, and I
think if we leave (the shel-
ters' operations) with the
county, that element won't
go away."
The county doesn't have
the money to build a."10-
story pet shelter" for hous-
ing all of the animals that
would survive under the no-
kill policy, Mrs. Infantini
said.
But the number of
spay/neuter services should
be increased, she said..
"The more spaying and
neutering, the less eutha-
nizations," she said. "If you
have fewer births, you will
have fewer deaths."
To keep costs down, offi-
cials could form partner-
ships with animal rescue
groups and volunteers and
use low-risk county jail
inmates to clean the shelter
cages and perform other
manual labor, Mrs. Infantini
said.
Theresa Clifton, executive
director of the Central Bre-
vard Humane Society in
Cocoa, said the county shel-
ters' budget is $1.3 million


and the Humane Society's is
almost $1 million.
The nonprofit Humane
Society does not receive any
county funding, she said. It
receives money from dona-
tions and fundraisers, works
with animal rescue groups
and has more volunteers
than the shelters, she said.
"We are willing and quite
capable of operating any
shelter," said Ms. Clifton,
who is an advisor to the Bre-
vard No Kill Coalition. "We
do turn animals away when
we are full, and the county
has no choice but to take
them in."

on the big picture, growing
and new development, that
they forget: to look out for
what we already have here,"
she said.
Mrs. Kuzma said city staff
"was great" back in August,
when it came to pumping out
the rising waters while the
storm was pounding the area
with as much as 30 inches of
rain.
Workers manned two
pumps in the deep retention
pond behind her house and
one pump on the south side
of the development.
But nothing has been
changed, as far as Mrs. Kuzma
can tell; no permanent fixes to
the drainage system have
been undertaken making the
approaching hurricane sea-
son darken the community's
future.
Mrs. Kuzman has sought
answers to several questions
for the developer, Lennar
Homes, but has not been
answered.
One question concerns a
series of drains on the north-
ern side of the development.
They are not op any site plan,
Mrs. Kuzma said. Did the
developer put them there or


the city? No one seems to
know.
Mrs. Kuzma said she didn't
kiowwhether thqdrains actu-
ally bring more water m from
the street or take it away dur-
ing a storm. She does know
that where the drains are,
water was standing at knee to
hip level after the storm.
The drains were discovered
after waters receded. They
were clogged and buried
beneath layers of sod.
They are not to be found on
any site map she has been
shown and they were appar-
ently put into place at the time
the communitywas built.
She said she has been told
by Lennar Homes that Lennar
didn't put them in.
West Melbourne City Coun-
cilman Andy Jones said that
unfortunately it may be up to
the homeowners association
to remedy any future drainage
problems inWestbrooke.
Mr. Jones lives in the subdi-
vision.
This, because after Lennar
left the community, the home-
owners association gained
ownership of all the drainage
structures.
"The city took the moral
responsibility for pumping the
lakes out (at the time of tropi-
cal storm Fay) but it may have


actually been the legal respon-
sibility of the homeowners
association," Mr. Jones said.
City.Manager David Reynal
said perhaps the drains were
put in by the developer to
relieve drainage issues, but
they were improperly placed
within the boundaries of the
properties, and not within
homeowner lots.
The City Council scheduled
a workshop meeting for Tues-
day Feb. 10, after press dead-
line, to discuss its potential lia-
bility over the storm water
drainage issues affecting sev-
eral subdivisions in the area.
Mr. Reynal said the City
Council is expected to discuss
what the city's liability issues
are in an event such as Tropi-
cal Storm Fay.
The city can plan for storm
events but planning for and
doing something about 500-
year or 1,000-year events pres-
ents an extreme case, he said.

I was recently asked by a
dying Jew to say appro-
priate words at this
person's funeral. Once I
realized that this would
follow cremation, my
choices were limited, since
Jewish law prohibits
participation in a ceremony
surrounding cremation.
Cremation is not
unknown in the Jewish
community. As a rabbi, I try
to spread knowledge of the
Jewish law so that decisions
relating to cremation and
other life-cycle events can
be based on.Jewish law.
The Torah is vehemently
opposed to cremation.
I explained to my dying
friend that since the human
body belongs to its creator,
any violation of it is consid-
ered to be a violation of
God himself.
Jewish burial expresses
our respect for the body
and our belief in life beyond
death. In death, the body
deserves to be treated with


RABBI
S ZVI KONIKOV
a .RAB


reverence so that the soul
can return to the body that
it once inhabited when
Moshiach, "the messiah,"
arrives.
When cremated, the body
becomes ash, but when the
body is buried, it returns to
dust, and becomes one with
the soil. The soil allows new
growth and further life. Ash
is barren and lifeless, so
turning the body to ash is
unnatural. But the gradual
process of returning to the
soil is true to the inner
meaning of death. The
passing of one generation
allows the sprouting of
another, and the living are
nourished and inspired by
the legacy of the dead. Our
forebears are the soil from
which we sprout. Even in
their death, they are a
source of life.
A bigger problem,
though, is that cremation is
a rejection of the concept of
resurrection. It shows that
the lifeless body has served
its purpose and now has no
further value. Belief in the
resurrection of the dead is
counted by Maimonides, a


pre-eminent medieval
Jewish philosopher and the
first person to write a
systematic code of all
Jewish law, as one of the
Thirteen Principles of Faith.
The Mishnah, or "Code of
Jewish Law," declares denial
of this principle to be
heresy.
From a practical stand-
point, being cremated is
unfair to mourners. There is
no gravesite to visit. A
Jewish burial with the body
brings a measure of com-
fort to the family. Without a
Jewish burial and body, the
soul has no resting place in
'this world.
A family will never regret
giving their loved one a
proper Jewish burial.
However, I have seen in
families the regret and pain
caused by a misinformed
decision to cremate.
Through the years, I have
found that people's deci-
sions are influenced toward
a traditional Jewish burial
when they learn the facts
about and meanings
behind Jewish customs and
practices.

Shelters
From page Al 1
About half of the animals
taken in each year by the
Humane Society are strays
and half are turned in or
"owner surrendered," she
said.
Some animals are not
adoptable and do get eutha-
nized, either because they
are too aggressive and pose
public safety risks or are too
chronically ill and do not
respond to treatments, Ms.
Clifton said. In 2007, the
Humane Society took in


2,800 animals and of those,
800 were euthanized, she
said.
The organization's new,
low-cost spay/neuter facili-
ty will reduce the number of
unwanted pets in the com-
munity, Ms. Clifton said.
Ms. Brown said, "Honest-
ly, I don't care who runs (the
county shelters) as long as
we have that (no-kill) com-
mitment and we work
toward it. I think we have
taken the first steps."

fun for


everyone

Last weekend was a
perfect opportunity
for grandmas to
spend time with their
grandchildren. Unfortu-
nately, mine were miles
away but I thought of
them as I attended two
events.
The first was Italian
Festa at Wickham Park.
Taking place at the main
pavilion adjacent to the
Melbourne campus of
Brevard Community
College, the event was
comprised mostly of food
vendors and a "play park"
for children replete with
half-a-dozen or so inflata-
bles, those giant slides,
houses and other assorted
soft activity "things."
Food vendors offered
tempting hefty cream or
fruit-filled flaky pastries
drizzled with chocolate or
sprinkled with powdered
sugar; hot, fried golden
brown funnel cakes;
sliced beef or sausage
with peppers and onions
on a bun or plate; French
fries; Italian ices and
more. Local restaurant,
SItaly Italy, 1934 North
Wickham Road, Mel-
bourne, at Northgate
Shopping Center, had a
booth set up offering a
variety of Italian fare,
including a deep-fried
rice ball, Italian sausage
with peppers, onions and
tomatoes, ziti and meat-
balls. I opted for the
combination plate, which
included ziti, sausage and
a meatball, served with '
bread just the way I like it
- soft and airy on the
inside, crusty on the
outside.
A live band performed
toe-tapping music and
many enjoyed a brew
from the beer tent as they
bopped their heads in
time to the music.
The only disappoint-
ment was the lack of
merchandise vendors.
Having money in my
pocket, I was prepared to

Scopes
From page B1
finish what you start. You have
come a long way the past year.
Don't stop now. The finish line
is in sight. This simple plan will
carry you safely and happily
through life and continue to
bring many new and wonder-
ful rewards in the coming days
and months ahead.

Libra Sept 23-Oc 22
The universal presence in you
constantly inspires you to do
your best You wake up each
day with joy and hope in your
heart More good is on the way.
You love to help and show oth-
ers the way to live a rich full life.
You don't ask for much for your-
self. Why? Because your true val-
ues are more in the spiritual
realm than the earthly.

Scorpio Oc23-Nov. 21
Upon arising, make the follow-
ing affirmation out loud each
day. "I listen to my divine inner
guidance and the visions
received always guide me
toward truth. I trust in the uni-
verse to supply me all I need
to live, laugh and prosper. I live
life to the fullest and give
thanks for my many blessings.
For all this I am eternally grate-
ful" Now even more is on the
way.


Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Your accumulated wisdom
and experience will propel you
even further on toward your
life goals in the coming year.
You have a lot of good feelings
and goodwill in your heart. Lis-
ten closely to them and they
will help you make wise choic-
es that prove right and serve
you well over time. Great joy is
on the way.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Keeping a lighter touch will
always keep you focused and
sharp. Your life is always taking
new turns. There will be a few
surprises but you will enjoy
pleasant endings. Your healing
and creative powers are
increasing. Set your goals and
place a time limit on achieving
them and everything will fall in
place as planned.

Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Your life is like a grand adven-
ture. Nothing is ordinary with
you. Go further and bring your
higher visions into reality. Give
your large imagination free
reign. You are a springboard
for positive change. Pay close
attention to the inspirations
coming up from your inner
well. Dare to be different and
unlimited results are yours for
the asking.

Pisces Feb. 19-March 20


A Pisces without a dream and
goal is like a fish without
water. Your short and long
term success is based on mak-
ing firm plans and then follow-
ing them through to comple-
tion. The key element is to
make sure that your heart is in
it before you begin. When you
have these things working in
harmony you are on your way
to rich rewards.

Star visions

renewed hope and joy to
your life. A personalized
astrology chart, a private

some trinket for myself or
a family member, should I
find something that
caught my eye. The few
vendors there did not have
enough goods to delay my
departure.
A trip to Titusville
Sunday brought another
opportunity for family fun.
The Jungle Safari could
be found in the Bealls
parking lot at Searstown
Mall on the west side of
U.S. 1.
Docile animals were on
display in clean, roomy
cages. Plenty of hay was
spread on the ground for
the standing animals, who
poked their heads through
openings in the bars for a
scratch behind the ears or
a nibble of food nuggets
available for a quarter in a
nearby vending machine.
Llamas, lemurs, mon-
keys, ponies, goats, tigers,
a camel and a cow were
there, "up close and
personal." Close enough
to touch, in fact. Signs
were posted to warn little
fingers to stay away from
any chance of biting-
danger from' the tiger and
one of the ponies, but the
rest of the animals were
eager to interact with
visitors. Photos could be
taken with a tiger cub or
astride the ponies or
camel, on which children
could ride. All the animals
were well-behaved and
content. Catch this event
next year when it comes to
town.
There are lots of oppor-


tunities for families to
explore Brevard. If your
children or grandchildren
are looking for something
fun to do this week, try the

If you want to lose weight, pay attention to what you drink


Hello smart shoppers.
How are those New
Year's resolutions
going?
The No. 1 resolution made
is to lose weight. Many of
you are cutting back on the
amount of fattening food
and junk food you eat and
see the scale moving so
slowly that by this time you
tell yourself, what's the use,
it must be my metabolism
or I'm just big boned.
Remember, it's not what
you eat, it's how you prepare
what you eat, which is the
basis for my column and my
cookbook; that's why I give
you choices.
For some reason, when
you're dieting, many times
you pay attention to what
you eat, not what you drink.
Sugar is the major carbohy-
drate we consume. Check
out your soft drinks.
One teaspoon of sugar
equals 4.2 grams. One 12-
ounce can of Coke contains
39 grams of sugar. Do the
math; that's about nine
teaspoons of sugar. Pepsi
contains 41 grams, that's
almost 10 teaspoons in one
can. Other soft drinks aren't
much better and when it
comes to sweetened iced
tea, I don't even want to
know.
The human body is
amazing, but can fool you
while you think you're doing
things right. Research shows
that while artificial sweeten-


ROMANCING
THE STOVE
with the .
Grammy Guru
ARLENE BORG

ers make drinks diet
friendly, if you have more
that two cans a day, the
body starts reading it as
sugar.
If you substituted 1 glass
of unsweetened iced tea for
one can of soda a day, you
would lose an average of 15
pounds in a year.
We are addicted to sugar,
as well as salt, and type-2
diabetes and high blood
pressure are rampant. Sugar
is not bad, it's the quantity
that makes it bad.
Fruits contain a natural
sugar (fructose). It is now
made in a granulated form
and today it is made from
corn syrup.
Here's an interesting fact:
it has almost twice the
sweetening power of
granulated sugar, so you
would use half of what you
usually do. It doesn't seem
to be absorbed in the body
the same way as regular
sugar. You can find it by the
pound in large supermar-
kets and health food stores
and it is affordable.
This week's recipe is a
perfect example of how to
prepare what'you eat and
make a difference.


The Guru's special hint:
Tired of glasses coming out
of the dishwasher with
baked on stuff? Tuck a small
container in the top rack,
right side up. to catch the
debris.

CREAMY PESTO
SAUCE
serves 4-6
regular and low fat
This sauce can be made
with dried basil, but it
doesn't compare with fresh.
Basil is so easy to grow. If
you don't have the time or
inclination, you can pur-
chase fresh basil in the
supermarket.
Basic pestb sauce is made
with oil, garlic and basil. I
think this creamy sauce is so
much better.
A friend who was born in
northern Italy (Genoa) gave
me the recipe years ago.
Recently I made it healthy
by using low-fat or fat-free
cream cheese and skim
milk, evaporated skim milk,
undiluted or fat-free half
and half. You will eliminate
most of the cholesterol and
saturated fat, but none of
the flavor.
If you choose to use
pignoli (pine) nuts I
prefer my sauce without
them, they give the sauce a
sandy texture toast and
finely chop them. Use about
1/4-cup nuts.

suitable substitute for

you allowed the world or
negative people to pull you
outside and stress or burn
you out and drain all your
spirit and energy?"
If you allow the latter to
happen, it is similar to
shorting out and discharg-
ing a battery.
The second question I
ask is, "What is your cause
or primary purpose? What
is your mission or dream?"
I posed this question to


several hundred people
who visited me recently at
the South Florida Fair. This
may sound unreal, but only
one in 10 were able to give
me a positive answer in
response.
The third question is to
locate the areas that are
causing a person to be
blocked, stuck, sidetracked
from their purpose and give
suggestions on how to free
the energy, realign it and
get it moving in the right
direction again.
The one overriding
challenge that the majority
struggle with is fear of
commitment. If you want
to buy a car from a dealer
you must spell out the
terms, the price and the


starting and ending date if
it is financed. Then it must
be signed to make it
official.
I believe that the same
process is necessary in the
spiritual sense. When we
write down our dream or
purpose we make a commit-
ment to our life's work and
destiny. We move the energy
from the mind or fear when
we create a written state-
ment of our intention. Then,
when the world begins to
pull us sideways, the
valuable written commit-
ment pulls us back and
moves us forward again.
A person without this
focus is like a ship without a
rudder. It or we go around in
circles and end up on the
rocks. People ask me, "How
do I find my purpose?" The
best way I have ever found is
to keep a journal or diary.
After a while, you will see
patterns of repetition of
important ideas. This is
important information


coming from your inner
being trying to get your
attention. These are valu-
able clues to your true
purpose once you begin to
see the patterns forming.
The most important thing
we ever do in life is go
inside, find our true calling,
bring it out and set it free.
The way to tell if life is
working right is to ask
ourselves, "How happy am
I?" Are you following your
heart? If the answer is no,
how can you expect to be
happy? Happiness lives in
the heart. The heart is the
home of our inner child.
Just because we grow up
and become adults with all
the responsibilities that go
with adulthood, doesn't
mean we don't still have that
youthful boy or girl spirit
inside us with the need for
joy and happiness.
Are you in touch with your
inner child? A child's work is
play. How often do you take
time out to do fun things?


How long has it been since
you told someone a funny
story and made them laugh?
When we cheer someone
else up, we are cheered up in
return. It is the simple
pleasures of life that are the
most rewarding.
My greatest desire is that
you find the way to follow
your heart, find your
purpose and refuse to let
negativity cause it to be
wasted. You can do it. The
potential lives in everyone
on earth.
When you find it, take care
of your own and family
needs first. Then give back
to others searching for their
cause and happiness. Pass
the torch of truth to the next
generation. This is a magnif-
icent life well lived and
entirely within your means
to accomplish. It is never too
late to start. Take it one day
at a time. Your happiness,
purpose and success are
now assured. Yours is now a
great new and better life.
