Surge in 2-1-1 calls
A surge in 2-1-1 calls
reported in Brevard County
is being blamed on the
uncertain economic times.
According to information
provided by the 2-1-1 Cen-
ter in Cocoa, of the 36,000
calls received by the center
from July through Decem-
ber a 71 percent increase
over the same period from
the previous year most
callers were asking for assis-
tance in housing, utilities
and other needs as a result
of financial need.
The numbers track with
similar figures compiled by
2-1-1 nationwide.
The increase in the num-

Laid-off DRS employee

challenges tax

benefits, grants for

defense contractor

MELBOURNE She came to the
City Council with a question. She
didn't like the answer.
Heike Albert joins the ranks of the
unemployed while her former
employer, DRS, is getting tax breaks
and benefiting from state grants.
Is it fair, or is it just a sign of the
times?
"I can't understand why you're
giving DRS this money," said Ms.
Albert, a laid-off program manager
formerly employed at Finmeccani-
ca-DRS in Melbourne.
A City Council agenda item Feb.
10 allowed the city to accept
$565,000 in state tourism and


transportation funds
which would create
traffic improvements
facilitating the defense contrac-
tor's consolidation efforts.
Additional funds, totaling less
than $85,000 for the estimated
$650,000 improvements in the area
of Babcock Street and Brevard Drive,
are coming from the city's Babcock
Street Corridor Redevelopment
Agency.
DRS, with American headquarters
in Parsippany, N.J., makes infrared
systems for battle tanks, troop
transports and combat helicopters.
DRS was purchased by Italian
defense firm, Finmeccanica of
Milan, Italy in 2008 for several
billion dollars.


In
Brevard, the company
will shift its operations from their
Palm Bay facility, consolidating into
a single location on North Babcock
Street in Melbourne.
DRS will invest more than an
estimated $28 million in construc-
tion to expand its plant operations
in Melbourne, said the city's Plan-
ning and Economic Development
director Cynthia Dittmer.
The move to accept the grants was
touted in the City Council backup
material a means for the city and

MELBOURNE The contractor currently
working along Edgewood Drive placing the
gabions into the ditch between Country Club
Drive and Dairy Road will receive an increase
in the contract to the amount of $187,000.
Melvin Bush Construction, Inc. of Port St
Lucie will also be given 34 extra days to com-
plete new work to the project, according to
city records.
By a 7-0 vote of the City Council on Feb. 10,
the work to repave Edgewood Drive is sched-
uled to begin immediately.
The city received federal funds to deal with
excessive erosion brought on by recent
storms and hurricanes.
On Oct. 28, the Melbourne City Council
awarded Melvin Bush Construction an esti-
mated $1.6 million contract to shore up the
drainage canal along the north side of Edge-
wood Drive, between Country Club Road
and Dairy Road.
The work, which has been taking place
over the last few weeks, involves loading
metal cages filled with granite boulders into
the ditch, and laying a bed of granite at the


bottom of the drainage canal.
The construction in this project is sched-
uled to be done within 120 days, according to
city records.
The increase to the contract came as a
result of inspection to the roadbed as the
contractor was working, said city engineer
Jenni Lamb.
"It has become apparent that compaction
to the sub-base of the roadbed along Edge-
wood Drive has become compromised due
to manyyears of erosion," wrote Roy Dittmer,
a project supervisor to city manager Jack
Schluckebier.
According to city records the project will
make use of an $86,200 contingency fund,
$87,000 in road resurfacing money as well as
money set aside to replace a storm pipe in
the canal.
Ms. Lamb said the recommendation to
award the contract to Melvin Bush came as a
result of the need to complete the project in
the allotted time for federal requirements.

diverted to keep the ditch dry for laborers. An earthen dam holds water back at the far
end. Men and equipment are moving granite stones into place to finish off the job.

Distemper shuts down adoption at county shelters


Interim director faces first
challenge a week into his
new assignment
By David Kearns
Kearns@hometownnewsol.com
MELBOURNE Brevard County Animal
Control Services interim director Bobby
Bowen announced Tuesday Feb. 17 that both
the north and south county animal shelters
are shut down for all adoption services, until
further notice.
Eight out of nine dogs at South Brevard
Animal Care and Adoption Center on west
Eau Gallie were reported to "atypical" respi-
ratory illness, with as many as six dogs
possibly infected. The animals tested positive


for distemper.
Officials from University of Florida were
called to the animal shelter on Friday, Feb.
13, according to Mary Berley, director of the
South Brevard Animal Shelter.
The sick dogs were not responding to
medicines for treatment of more common
illnesses, said Dr. Robbie Asher, veterinarian
at the shelter.
Ms. Berley said that blood samples were
taken from dogs at the shelter by University
of Florida veterinarian Cynda Crawford.
Dr. Asher said this is the first time the
University of Florida has been called to
Brevard to help with an animal illness.
Tests confirmed late Tuesday afternoon
that eight of nine had canine distemper virus,
Mr. Bowen said.
Mr. Bowen said that there have been many


cases of distemper reported throughout the
state and Brevard has in fact, "dodged the
bullet" on the disease until now.
The American Veterinary Medicine Associa-
tion's Web site says the virus is apparently
spread through the respiratory systems
between one animal and-another through
water droplets in the air, and respiratory
secretions, and can affect the canine's
nervous system.
There is no word yet on planned euthanasia
as a result of the distemper report.
Ms. Heidi Denis, assistant county manager
for community services, said that there is "no
indication at this point" that animals at the
North Shelter in Cocoa seem affected by the
illness.

Youths shown a positive path


Program serves as an eye-opener


By Tammy Roberts
Roberts@hometownnewsol.com
Thirteen years ago, Larry
Lawton was at a place in his
life where no one wants to be.
He'd just been convicted of
racketeering in connection
with jewelry robbery and was
about to spend the next 11
years in some of the toughest
federal prisons in the coun-
try.
Today, Mr. Lawton, 47, sees
things much clearer as a free
man and has devoted his life
to making sure today's youth
does the same.
S"In prison, there's preda-
tors and there's prey," he said.
"I guarantee every one of
these kids today are prey. I
don't care how tough they
think they are."
While serving his sentence,
Mr. Lawton acted as a gang
mediator and a counselor for
other inmates. He studied
law, and left prison as a certi-
fied paralegal, which would
later serve as the basis for his
business, LL Research & Con-
sulting.


Just a few months after
being released in the spring
of 2007, Mr. Lawton moved to
Palm Bay to care for his
father, and went to work on a
concept he designed to pre-
vent teens and young adults
from making bad decisions.
He called it the "Reality
Check" program, a four-hour
in-your-face glimpse into
prison life and the horrors
and lifelong tolls that come
along with it.
"I gave it the name 'Reality
Check' because it's designed
to do exactly that wake kids
up and make them see this is
where they could end up,"
Mr. Lawton said. "It's nothing
like they see on TV or in the
movies. Not even close."
In the past 18 months,
hundreds of local youth ages
11-23 have undergone a
"reality check" with Mr. Law-
ton as their guide.
During the program, Mr.
Lawton uses a slideshow
presentation to highlight four
main topics: decision-mak-
ing, juvenile statistics, penal-

ties/losses and avoiding bad
associations.
A New York City native, Mr.
Lawton refers to his own
experiences and discusses
his connection with organ-
ized crime through personal
accounts and photos. He
doesn't sugarcoat his stories,
using rough language and
blunt speech to gain immedi-
ate attention from his audi-
ence.
"If there's one thing a kid
knows, it's when you're feed-
ing them bull," Mr. Lawton
said. "They see right through
it. I tell them I'm not their
teacher, their parent or their
counselor. You have to get on
their level to make them want

Airline baggage fees have some


searching for other means of travel


By Tammy Roberts
Roberts@hometownnewsol.com
The state of the current
economy has made itself
known in many places, even
the friendly skies.
As many travelers already
know, nearly every major
airline that flies through the
southern region has
established mandatory
baggage fees for checked
luggage. Airline representa-
tives said they have imple-
mented these fees as a way
to offset low airfares and
other costs, primarily high
fuel prices.
Some went into place in
September of last year,
while others held on until
late-December to tack on
the extra fees.
However, the majority of
airlines that partner with
Orlando International
Airport have been consider-
ate of the fact that some
passengers booked their
tickets several months in
advance by providing
passengers with a certain
date for which the fee
applies.
Effective Oct. 7, Conti-
nental Airlines now charges
a fee of $15 for passengers
to check one bag if their
ticket was purchased on or
after Sept. 6, according to
www.continental.com.
The airline charges $25
for a second checked bag if
traveling within the U.S. or
to Puerto Rico, the U.S.
Virgin Islands or Canada.
U.S. Airways now charges
the same fees for tickets
purchased after July 9,
according to www. usair-
ways.com. If checking a
third bag, the airline
charges the passenger an
additional $100.
For tickets booked before
Nov. 12, the same fees apply
for AirTran Airways when
checking the first two bags,
while each additional bag
checked costs passengers
$50, according to www.air-
. . ; . ] .


tran.com.
"We implemented the
baggage fee due to skyrock-
eting fuel prices that we
experienced in 2008," said
Judy Graham-Weaver,
manager of public relations
for AirTran Airways. "Fuel
has subsided now, but
accounted for more than 50
percent of our costs at
AirTran Airways and
remained at record levels
for a very long time last
year."
Ms. Graham-Weaver
explained that in the past
year, many airlines have
switched to "a la carte"
pricing on many fees such
as checked baggage to help
offset the cost of fuel.
The Transportation
Security Administration,
which was implemented
after Sept. 11, 2001, as away
to protect the nation's
transportation systems, is
not responsible for mandat-
ing these fees, Ms. Graham-
Weaver said.
"It is up to each airline to
decide how to manage its
fees and bottom line, so (the
implementation of baggage
fees) were a matter of trying
to stay afloat, really," she
said.
Even smaller carriers,
such as Spirit Airlines,
which allows passengers to
only check one bag per
person unless special
reservations are made,
charges a $25 fee for
checking a bag at the
airport. If checking-in
online, the fee is dropped to
$15.
Travelers should keep in
mind that these fees only
apply to baggage that meets
the required weight and size
requirements. Most major
airlines increase the fee for
bulky bags, so airline
representatives recommend
weighing all luggage prior to
arriving at the airport.
Melbourne resident Julie
Johnsorrsaid'she didtY't
realize the impact of the

new baggage fees until she
returned home from her
annual skiing trip in
Colorado with her husband
and three teenagers earlier
this month.
"We go for two weeks, so
not checking bags is nearly
impossible," Mrs. Johnson
said. "It ended up costing us
an additional $150 round-
trip just to check our
luggage, and we didn't even
bring our own (skiing
equipment) this year. If we
weren't going so far, I:
wouldn't be against driving
next year."
While it's still too early to
tell, one airline representa-
tive said she wouldn't be
surprised if more travelers
started searching for other
means of travel, especially
those traveling in large:


groups.
Nearly every major airline
has jumped on board with
the baggage fee policy and
some travelers wonder
where exactly the extra
money is going.
"What has been unrealis-
tic is that some consumers
believe that the cost to fly
today is exactly what it was
decades ago," said Mike
Dauphinee, station manag-
er for Delta Air Lines at
Melbourne International
Airport. "That's not the case.
Ticket prices have gone way
down."
In the past few years,
Delta, like most other major
airlines, has placed a fee on
everything from travel
headphones to meal
vouchers for delayed flights.

Superintendent: $66 million


in potential cuts for schools


By Tony Judnich
Judnich@hometownnewsol.com
VIERA Brevard Public
School Board members and
Superintendent Richard
DiPatri are urging parents,
school district employees
and others to ask their state
senators and representatives
to make public education a
top priority.
At the board's Feb. 10
meeting, Mr. DiPatri listed
$66 million in potential cuts
that might have to be made
to the school district's 2009-
10 budget because of state
revenue shortfalls.
Mr. DiPatri, who is resign-
ing from his position July 1,
stressed no action would be
taken until May or June, fol-
lowing the regular legislative
session in Tallahassee.
"We're not trying to scare
people," he said. "We're try-


ing to get them engaged" in
order to urge elected officials
to protect public education.
Potential cuts include the
elimination of: more than
300 teachers; more than 400
other positions, including
144 custodians and 130
instructional assistants; and
87 additional district-level
personnel at the Educational
Services Facility in Viera and
at district offices.
Other potential reductions
could include closing schools
that have fewer than 500 stu-
dents, eliminating middle
school and ninth-grade ath-
letics and intramurals and
junior varsity athletic pro-
grams and reducing
band/chorus uniform alloca-
tions to all secondary schools
and instrument allocations
to all schools by 50 percent.
The full list of potential
cuts is on the BPS Web site,


http://www.brevard.kl2.fl.us
Mr. DiPatri said the pri-
mary objectives of the possi-
ble reductions are to insure
minimal impact to students
and maintain adequate
staffing.
School board chairman
Robert Jordan, however, said,
"If a parent ever felt their stu-
dent's future was threatened,
that day is now."
He said if students do not
have athletics, bands and
other after-school programs
to look forward to, they "will
be bored" and will not want
to go to school.
"We're in dire straits," Mr.
Jordan said.
Board member Andy
Ziegler said now is the time
for the community to work
together as a team.
"We're going to get
through this," he said.


Baggage
From page A3
"If there was a weather
delay, we'd put passengers
up in a hotel no ques-
tions asked," Mr. Dauphi-
nee said. "We used to give
away everything for free,
but with ticket prices so
low and gas prices so high,
airlines need other fees to
cover the real cost of
flying, from purchasing
planes and employee
salaries to aircraft mainte-
nance."
To deter from the added
fees, Mr. Dauphinee said
that passengers could rely
on the fact that Delta has a
reputation for respecting
its passengers' time and
working hard to take
passengers to their
destinations without any
setbacks.
Other than Baer Air, a
non-international airline,
Delta Air Lines is the only
commercial airline
currently stationed at
Melbourne International


Airport. Compare that with
the 36 airlines that partner
with Orlando International
Airport.
"Following Sept. 11,
when security measures
and rules became a lot
stricter, Delta was the only
airline that stuck around,"
said Jill Frederickson,
spokeswoman for Mel-
bourne International
Airport. "The good thing
about Melbourne Interna-
tional being such a small
airport is there aren't any
long lines, and as long as
you're prepared and follow
security regulations, flying
is a very simple process."
While most major
airlines that fly into
Orlando International
Airport have tacked on
baggage fees, Southwest
Airlines has yet to charge
passengers for checking
bags.
According to
www.southwest.com, the
airline also advertises no
fees for reserving window
or aisle seats, curbside
check-in, phone reserva-


tions or fuel.
Passengers who check
one bag aboard JetBlue
Airways also do not have
to pay a baggage fee.
But passengers who
booked their tickets after
May 1 will be charged $20
for a second checked bag
and $75 for a third,
according to
www.jetblue.com.
While it depends on the
airline, situations where
baggage fees may not
apply are for some first-
class passengers, airline
club members, airline
credit card members and
for passengers traveling to
and from some foreign
countries.
All major airlines
exempt baggage fees for
confirmed active-duty U.S.
military personnel travel-
ing both inside and
outside the U.S.
"With costs on our end
so high, passenger fees will
always be there," Mr.
Dauphinee said. "The
funds keep the airline in
operation."

Callers are asked to refrain from making slanderous

Sunshine law response

Although the message of the article implied "all is well in
Mudville," I am interested in how the residents of the city feel
regarding such practice by our council.
Since we have the fox watching the hen house with our city
attorney being part of the festivities, the issue appears to
come to the integrity of our council members.
The Florida Attorney General's Web site, http://myfloridale-
gal.com/pages.nsf/main/df6796c2c498743985256cc7000ad5c
b!OpenDocument, posts the following:
"Q. What qualifies as a meeting?
"A. The Sunshine law applies to all discussions or delibera-
tions as well as the formal action taken by a board or com-
mission. The law, in essence, is applicable to any gathering,
whether formal or casual, of two or more members of the
same board or commission to discuss some matter on which
foreseeable action will be taken by the public board or com-
mission. There is no requirement that a quorum be present
for a meeting to be covered under the law.
"Q. Can two members of a public board attend social func-
tions together?
"A. Members of a public board are riot prohibited under the
Sunshine law from meeting together socially, provided that
matters which may come before the board are not discussed
at such gatherings.
The first action would suggest that their causal meeting
does qualify as a meeting. However, by the second response,
we must trust the honesty of the mayor, the city attorney and
board members in attendance that they are not discussing
board action.
Commendation must go out to council member (Joanne)
Corby for not subjecting herself to a compromising position
and demonstrating the integrity expected from public offi-
cials.
(I) read your article and was reminded of the "good 'ol
boys" attitude. Your point is well taken, especially when a
Feb. 3 "shade meeting" was blatantly announced on the front
page article regarding the water agreement.
I live alone and ifI used no water at all, I would still receive
a bill for at least $47. There is no trust in government at any
level.

Support local business

Hello local people of Brevard. Are you out there? I implore
you to try (to) support the small, privately-owned, specialty
shops of your downtown.areas. Please leave the large corpo-
rate stores alone. It's a shame that the smaller shops have to
depend on the snowbirds and the'tourists, bless them, for a
few short months, and can't count on the local people. You'll
probably be shocked to see how many shops have closed
after this "season" when you do decide to go out for lunch or
a stroll along the lovely'streets and alleys of any of our amaz-
ing shopping communities. Please just come look. Give us a
chance. You'll be delighted at what we have to offer.

School budget

I am very upset about tle proposed cuts in funding for
Brevard County schools. Our excellent superintendent,
Richard DiPatri, has really found ways to. reduce spending
to-date without greatly affecting the school staff and stu-
dents. This will not be the case with the proposed funding
cuts for next year.
What was the purpose of DROP legislation? Do those
needs still exist? I know the intent was not to allow state
employees to complete the DROP program, "sit out" a
month, then be rehired, collecting a pension and a pay-
check. This practice is widespread, yet Jim Ford's situation
was treated in the media as "unique."
Brevard County school system must be adequately funded
to continue the excellence that has been the standard.

Air talent missed

Last night, I spoke to a manager of a local oldies radio sta-
tion, and lamented the fact that most "local" air disc jockeys
are now computerized voice drops. Don't you miss the
evening DJ, who you could call in a request to? Or a friendly
overnight voice you can listen to when you can't sleep? How
about third-shifters at stores, hospitals and restaurants?
Wasn't it nice to talk to a real radio personality? I used to be
that guy; yes, the hours were not great, but (it) was so much
fun to do a service to the third-shifters and play music, read
the news and weather and inform the public if something

NAIFA says to stay with your State Farm Agent


For Hometown News
Brevnews@hometownnewsol.com
The National Associa-
tion of Insurance and
Financial Advisors Florida
today called for an
immediate end to efforts
to encourage policyhold-
ers to give up highly-rated
property insurance
policies based on misin-
formation.
NAIFA Florida's call
came in light of published
reports saying that the
state's Hurricane Catastro-
phe Fund likely will be
woefully underfunded and
drastic action is taking
place to shore it up or
reduce its size.
Additionally, numerous
advertisements have
,appeared statewide
exploiting the uncertainty.
"It is the height of
irresponsibility to use this
situation to create para-
noia and induce people to
make decisions that are
irreversible and potentially
damaging," said Bob


Lotane, spokesman for
NAIFA Florida. "State Farm
has made it clear that
nothing will be done on
this matter until after
hurricane season and most
Floridians won't have to
make decisions on cover-
age for months or even
years after that time."
While State Farm may be
Leaving the property
insurance business, the
agent with whom policy-
holders have developed
relationships is staying
and they will be providing
new property insurance
options for present
policyholders.
Insurance Commission-
er McCarty's office has
been working feverishly
with elected officials and
company representatives
to provide Floridians a
glide path into new
coverage.
By maintaining the
highly-rated coverage
policyholders now pos-
sess, Floridians are not
herded into buying


big happened overnight in our world.
All this computerization and automation has saved sta-
tions financially, but at what price? I miss the local air talent
at any time of the day or night, weekday or weekend. At
some point, we will not have any air talents left, even (the)
morning drive will be just syndicated shows by voices thou-
sands (of) miles away.

Betrayal

U.S. presidents have had to deal with.betrayal before.
In WW I, it was betrayal by the Germans. In WW II, the
Japanese betrayed (our country.) On Sept. 11, 2001, the
betrayal came from Al-Qaida. Always before, the betrayal had
come from without.
A new stench of treachery confronts this president.
Betrayal this time comes from within. It is betrayal of the
U.S. and its citizens by others who claim to be U.S. citizens. It
is betrayal by CEOs, the likes of an Enron, aWorldCom, a Lea-
man Brothers, a Citibank, a GM. It is betrayal in the guise of
greed and selfishness. It demands bloated, undeserved pay
packages. It cares for no one. It goes on and on today, ad nau-
seum.
Betrayal by boards of directors who utterly abandon their
responsibilities to shareholders and employees alike by failing
to oversee properly their CEOs, and by rewarding them with
obscene pay packages for "leading" their companies to bank-
ruptcy. It continues.
Yahoo's board just announced an annual pay package for its
new CEO of $19 million. Further, they close plants and export
jobs to other nations, solely for profit, all the while destroying
the industrial base of the U.S.
Betrayal by politicians in Congress, state, county and local
governments. These people sought public office, allegedly to
serve. Instead, they have long since chosen to serve their own
interests at the expense of those whose trust they have forfeit-
ed. "Earmarks" abound, even in the $750 billion "bail-out." It
began as a mere three-page bill and swelled to 450 pages in
one week at the deft hands of Congress. Health care for citi-
zens is a travesty while politicians enjoy gold-plated benefit
packages at public expense. Blind partisanship hobbles their
willingness to pass key legislation for the benefit of all Ameri-
cans.
Betrayal by public officials charged with ensuring delivery
of essential services to all. Instead, they arbitrarily direct funds
to pet projects and friends, or withhold needed funds and aid.
Save Goldman Sachs but sink Leaman Brothers on a whim.
When caught, they bluster rather than confess to their impro-
prieties.
Betrayal from without is at least easy to identify and
address. Betrayal from within is far more insidious. Corrup-
tion has become a hallmark of U.S. corporate and government
bodies. It is regarded as "the norm" by too many. The guilty go
unpunished, or receive special treatment, as in the case of
Bernard Madoff. In reality, corruption borders on treason. It is
destroying the U.S. as surely as any foreign enemy. All these
have undermined confidence in government, and now the
economy, to the point where distrust deters Americans from


policies that could be
drastically affected by the
problems percolating at
the CAT Fund. Down the
road when new coverage
options need to be
applied, hurricane season
and the challenges faced
by the CAT Fund should be
a distant memory.
With so much depen-
dant on what happens in
coming months at the
federal level, in the Florida
legislature and in global
financial markets, to now
encourage policyholders
with secure coverage to
make dangerous decisions
is fiscally
irresponsible. Last year the
CAT Fund admitted that it
likely could not find
adequate funds had a
major hurricane hit, and
this year it says the situa-
tion is even worse.
NAIFA Florida cautioned
Floridians not to make
decisions in haste or in
anger that may be irre-
versible and financially
catastrophic. It encour-


aged Floridians who have
policies with State Farm to
consult with their State
Farm agent who, while not
party to decisions made by
the insurance company,
still has the knowledge and
skill to protect the policy-
holders' long-term inter-
ests and who will be able
to provide new, secure
options down the road.

Founded in 1932, the
National Association of
Insurance and Financial
Advisors is comprised of31
local associations across
the state ofFlorida with
more than 4,000
members. NAIFA Florida's
mission is to enhance the
ability of members to
provide financial security
for their clients through
appropriate legislative
action, continuing educa-
tion, professional skills
development and promo-
tion of ethical conduct of
agents and others engaged
in insurance and related
financial services.


investing in major businesses for fear of their collapse. Go-
ernment regulators have proven as unreliable at protecting
investors as have the companies they supposedly "regulate."
Betrayal from foreign interests is serious. Betrayal by those
who claim to be loyal Americans is far more despicable. Thy
are an affront to this nation. A new president does not need r
deserve such unprecedented and inexcusable internal betra-
al to add to the burden of his office.

Signs, signs, nowhere signs

This weekend a friend of mine asked me to help her ot
with her garage sale. This is a woman who is barely making
right now. She can't find full-time work, so is only working
part-time and takes care of a handicapped daughter. She s
very close to losing her house, because in early 2008, the fu-
time store she worked at closed its doors and (it has) taken hr
months to find (a) part-time job. She figured having a garap
sale would be great to get a little extra cash on hand to heo
with this month's mortgage (payment).
We (spent) two hours Friday morning setting things up.I
(went) out and put the signs up. Things (were) a little brisk t
the beginning, and we (were) thinking we (were) going to hae
a decent day. All of a sudden, no one (was) coming by. Aftr
about an hour, I (went) to get us drinks and I (noticed) owr
signs (were) gone. The city of Palm Bay's beautification truck
(drove) by me while I (was) at a stop sign and I (noticed) 1i
(the) yard sale signs in the back. Needless to say, I (was) a tt
peeved by (that time.) I (went) back and (explained that) tie
signs (were) gone and that's why no people (were) coming b.
We (closed) up and I (told) her I (would) get more signs afteil
(got) out of work and we (would) continue (on Saturday.) Sa-
urday morning, I (went) to Home Depot, spent $30 on sigs
and (got) to her house; she (was) starting to get set up.I
(made) up the signs real fast and (went) to put them out. I
came) back and (finished) setting everything up all over again.
We (had) a few people (stop) by and then, about an hor
into it, a man tells us the Palm Bay city guy just picked up or
signs and he wanted to let us know. My friend was high
upset by this, not understanding why they would do it who
the signs have the sale dates on the signage and it's not lib
they've been up for a week.
(It took) us two and a half hours to pack everything awy
and as I (was) coming home south on San Filippo (Drive), wb
(did) I see but the Palm Bay beautification truck headiig
north. After I passed him, I counted 17 yard sale signs along
San Filippo (Drive) that were homemade and weren't tako
down. What is this guy's problem? He only "polices" the Pot
Malabar area for unsightly signs that have been up for a
hour?
These signs could have been left up until Monday and the
taken down if the person having the garage sale didn't alreaq
do so. Not only did my friend spend money on signs, but I di
as well, and it was for nothing. The really sad thing is what v
spent in signs we didn't even make back in the limited time f
the garage sale.
The city of Palm Bay should be ashamed that in this exceet-
ingly bad economy we're in, that its tax paying residents cait

put signs out for a garage sale (to make
money) to put food on the table or help
with the mortgage (payment). To the
guy who drives the beautification
enhancement truck ... shame on you.
Let's hope that you don't get in the same
predicament where a weekend of garage
sale money makes the difference of
whether you get to eat that week or pay
your mortgage.
Editor's note: A response to this rant
was requested from the city manager of
Palm Bay As of press time, no response
had been received.

Good points made
I very much enjoyed the comprehen-
sive letter written about our Social
Security system, "The raw deal." The
author pointed out that the present sys-
tem is unsustainable without an
increase in payroll taxes or a reduction
in benefits; noting that the first would
likely increase unemployment and the
second would be politically unpopular.
The letter offered an alternative to
this defined benefit program by priva-
tizing the system, similar to ,what (for-
mer President) George W (Bush) pro-
posed, unsuccessfully, during his
administration. I am elated that it did
not succeed. I don't even want to think
about where we all would be now had it
(succeeded.) Left with half the money
we put in and no defined benefit pro-
gram to fall back on. We already have
many privatized programs. They are
called IRAs, 401ks, 457s, etc.
I still feel there are areas in the pres-
eint system that should be examined.
The spouse benefits for one, not to be
confused with widows benefits. Spouse
benefits can be payable to a spouse
(who) has not been employed a day in
their life and has not contributed a
penny to the system. This is in addition
to the employed spouse's full benefits.
My wife, for example, has worked her
entire life and contributed to the system
but will receive less than her friend,
who hasn't contributed at all. I have
checked with the' Social Security
Administration and, no, the working
spouse does not contribute more to
compensate for the non-working
spouse and, no, his benefits are not
decreased.
This is only one area of the program
that should be looked at as a step to
make the system more actuarially
sound. I won't even get into divorced
widows benefits at this time.
Politically unpopular or not, we are in
a time of economic collapse and des-
perate times call for desperate meas-


ures. But rather than throwing the baby
out with the bath water, let's just try to
pop some of the big bubbles. It may
help.

Re-allocate cuts

If the school system would allocate
their budget cuts to administrators
who could not make it in the class-
room and are doing make-work stuff
in place of the items that are most visi-
ble and hurt the worst, the students,
the teachers and the quality of educa-
tion would never notice the budget
cuts.
I am a classroom teacher of 25 years.

Stop the prejudice

This is a call to get it off my chest.
How sad it is that in this day and age,
when we've made history by having a
Democratic president who happens to
be of color, that the prejudice of some
white people, who have been using a
slur, not the N-word, (is so apparent) of
President Obama, whom I admire.
(He), (along) with many other people,
meet the challenges of (our) country
and citizens who have been placed in
jeopardy. It's discouraging and sad that
prejudice still exists. I am seeing it in
many places, (especially) here in con-
versations. I pray that God reaches the
hearts of these people who have preju-
dice and hatred and racial animosity. I
hope they realize we are all placed here
by our higher power.

Who cares?

To the person who wrote "Shelters:"
You are obviously someone connected
to one of the more humane places. I
agree with all you said, but I did write to
the county manager and got no
response. I also wrote to Gov. (Charlie)
Crist and his response was it had to be
dealt with at the county level. I guess he
is only governor of Tallahassee, not
Florida. I did write to a county commis-
sioner, but she "did not have the stom-
ach for the facts." So who else do we
bring this to? Newspapers? Not the
Florida Today; I tried that. The media?
This is my next goal. Somebody has to
care. Somebody has to do something.
Am I alone in thinking it is criminal to
put a healthy animal to sleep and in the
most inhumane way? Walking it to its
death over other dead animals because
the shelter needs the room? Well, in
that case, build a new shelter or add to
the existing 20-year-old one we have.
Spend some of the $1 billion budget on
this instead of wasting it on useless
things, i.e., the horse barn at Widkham


Park that's not used.
People of Brevard County: help stop
this.

Still divided
(Speaker of the House) Nancy Pelosi
has made a huge point of bi-partisan
cooperation in the new Congress. She
said that she would work hard to make
the stimulus bill a bi-partisan effort,
but when the house voted on the stim-
ulus bill, the vote was almost totally
along party lines. When the Republi-
cans complained that they were not
even allowed to make input on the bill,
Speaker Pelosi said, "We won the elec-
tion, we wrote the bill."

Economics 101
What are our wishes from American
Business Media and the current
administration? The stock market to
rise? Those in 401s and IRAs want to
buy lower, not higher.
Employee wages to increase? Com-
panies will increase selling prices of
their goods to compensate. Oh well, in
one pocket (and) out the other.
Government-controlled and paid-for
health insurance? Current for-profit
health plans will suffer and increase
their rates to the people they now
serve. Or will they just be happy with
lower profits? What's your guess?
The big thing is make more job
opportunities. Question: Just how can
government force companies to hire
more people? Currently, they are losing
business and laying off people, not hir-
ing. Some companies are going under,
not hiring nor building new plants.
Reduce taxes means less money in
the U.S. Treasury, means less money to
distribute to fund programs. Should
this happen, the national debt will
absolutely increase.
Just who are still working? Civil
employees federal, state and local,
teachers, firemen, police, agriculture
workers, scientists, accountants, med-
ical personnel, post office personnel,
ministers, pharmacists, electricians,
plumbers, doctors, lawyers, etc.
Who's off? Factory workers, clerical
help, waiters, painters, general labor-
ers, people with no sellable skill. Guess
what? People of all ages need to get
more education colleges, trade
schools, technical schools, apprentice
programs and other places that help
the person get sellable skills.
Oh, how about sales of more cars and
trucks? As you are aware, the roads are
loaded with cars and trucks. This repre-
sents a pent-up demand. These vehi-
cles wear out. This is America, (where)
owning a vehicle is almost mandatory.
Sales; will happen.

Florida approves


State Farm plan,


with conditions


By Tammy Roberts
Roberts@hometownnewsol.com
State Farm wanted out.
Now it has the chance -
with a few state-imposed
provisions, that is.
Florida Insurance Com-
missioner Kevin McCarty
announced Feb. 13 his
decision to allow State Farm
to stop writing property
coverage in Florida, follow-
ing the company's Jan. 27
request to the Office of
Insurance Regulation. I
But the approval comes
with a list of conditions the
company must abide by:

given 30 days to surrender
its Certificate of Authority,

said in a press release. This

a home or group setting, Mr.
Lawton said.
From teens whose grades
are faltering in school to
those with criminal records,
Mr. Lawton's program boasts
a 75 percent success rate. It is
even effective as a preventa-
tive method for youth who
have a history of staying out


order prohibits the compa-
ny from adding new proper-
ty insurance policies to its
Florida customer-base. It
does not, however, prohibit
the company from provid-
ing other types of insurance
in the state, such as car and
boat lines.
State Farm was instruct-
ed to facilitate the orderly
transition of policies from
State Farm Florida to the
private marketplace in a
method directed by the
Office of Insurance Regula-
tion.
The company was also
prohibited from placing any
policies in Citizens Property

of trouble.
Mr. Lawton bases these
findings on surveys filled out
by each participant who
completes the program, both
immediately after and on a
follow-up basis.
The program is an eye-
opener for some participants
and many seem to immedi-
ately look up to Mr. Lawton,
asking if they could keep in
touch.

the county to retain as
many as 951 jobs and
possibly pave the way for
10 newjobs.
It also provides for
construction work to
companies who will help
build the new facilities.
Ms. Albert, however,
begged to differ about it
retaining high-tech jobs
in the defense industry. In
her case, the opposite has
been the result.
Through tears she told
council members she is
only one of 17 employees
laid off by DRS in the last
two weeks.
Ms. Albert said she
leaves a $120,000 a year
job as a program manager
for $275 per week in
unemployment benefits.
She had relocated from
Los Angeles, Calif., to
Brevard. As an electrical
engineer, she said there
was more work in Califor-
nia. Now she is stuck in
Palm Bay with two homes


back to every kid who con-
tacts me," Mr. Lawton said.
"I'll never turn them away."
Mr. Lawton offers the Real-
ity Check program for youth
ages 11 to 21 on a monthly
basis in Melbourne. The cost
is $50 and participants may
also earn eight hours of com-
munity service upon com-
pletion of the four-hour pro-
gram.
"This isn't 'Scared
Straight,'" Mr. Lawton said.

and a deepening reces-
sion.
Two calls to DRS
confirmed Ms. Albert had
been employed there, but
no longer works for the
company.
In an interview after the
vote, Ms. Albert said, "I
don't know if they are
basing (the incentives) on
old information. Two
months ago maybe they
planned on keeping
people but not now."
Councilwoman Joanne
Corby said on Feb. 11,
"DRS had nothing to do
with what we voted on
last night. I voted on it for
the traffic improvements.
Those don't leave with
DRS. That money doesn't
go to DRS, it goes to
improve a situation we
need to get fixed," she
said.
However, DRS will gain
some tax breaks from the
city of Melbourne.
Ms. Dittmer said the
City Council approved an
estimated $567,206 tax
abatement from the city
over the next five years.


"This is reality. I don't believe
in bad kids... only bad choic-
es."
Melbourne resident Jill
Davies got word of the pro-
gram from a friend and
decided to do a little research
of her own.
"I visited the Web site and
found out more about what it
was that Mr. Lawton was
hoping to do," Ms. Davies
said. "I have a 15-year-old,
and you know, that's a critical
age and a critical time for
decision-making. I really
wanted him to gain some
perspective on the real world,
and this seemed like a great
opportunity to do that."
A freshman at Eau Gallie
High School, Ms. Davies' son,
Kyle, completed the Reality
Check program in early Janu-
ary. He has since shown
improvement in his grades,
gained recognition from his
teachers and has focused
Sirei'on iT s future.
'"He went into the class
with an open mind and came
out with a better perspective
on the decisions he was mak-
ing," Ms. Davies said. "The
first thing he said when he
got in the car was, 'Thanks,
Mom.' He was still talking
about the things Larry said
days after the program. It
really made an impression on
him."
Ms. Davies said that while


The vote came last June.
The company also
received tax breaks from
the county, Ms. Dittmer
said.
The mechanism that
gets the ball rolling on
this deal is the state grant,
according to city docu-
ments.
"The state road grant
was a major factor in
DRS's decision not to
relocate outside of
Florida," wrote economic
redevelopment coordina-
tor Doug Dombroski to
city manager Jack
Schluckebier.
"Why are we giving
them $500,000 to move
from Palm Bay to Mel-
bourne?" Ms. Albert
asked.
But Ms. Dittmer said
the threat DRS would
leave Brevard and take all
of its jobs with it was very
real.
Melbourne Mayor
Harry Goode told Ms.
Albert that the governor's
office took an interest in
seeing that those high-
paying jobs remained in


she has never known her son
to be a troublemaker, she was
eager for him to hear the
importance of responsibility
from another source.
"Because Larry has been
through these experiences,
he is passionate about the
things he talks about," Ms.
Davies said. "He's real. I think
the kids can really see that."
Before they leave the pro-
gram, Mr. Lawton provides
each one of his participants
with one of his business cards
in case they have a problem
or a situation they'd like to
discuss in the future.
Ms. Davies said that when
her son returned home from
the program, he put the busi-
ness card on his nightstand
and has kept it there ever
since.
With as many participants
as Reality Check has touched,
it still remains the only pro-
gram of its kind in the state of
Florida.
In the past several months,
the program has gained
momentum from local politi-
cians, corporations and the
county court system.
Last fall, Mr. Lawton host-
ed a youth golf tournament
in Suntree that included prize
packages, golf lessons and
one-on-one mentoring ses-
sions.

Florida and in Brevard.
DRS vice president of
Public Affairs Richard
Goldberg said he cannot
comment on specific
cases of lay-offs.
"It would be unfair to
the employee and unfair
to me," he said.
He did not have any
specific numbers avail-
able regarding layoffs in
Melbourne and could not
confirm that 17 employ-
ees had been laid off.
"I will say we are

Mr. Goldberg added

there that they can be excited
about," Mr. Lawton said. "It
was about showing them
something positive."
Mr. Lawton also gained
national recognition with
Reality Check as a guest on
Voice America, one of the
world's largest Internet radio
shows. He is in the process of
working with a local screen-
writer, who contacted Mr.
Lawton about turning his life
story into a movie.
In the future, Mr. Lawton
hopes to create a Reality
Check program for parents of
teens and has already made
connections with leaders in
New York City, Chicago and
San Francisco, where he'd like
to see his program take flight.
But it's Mr. Lawton's newest
venture that is guaranteed to
make a lasting impression on
local youth.
He is in the process of ptir-
chasing the three-story
building in Pali 'Bay 'iher
he currently rents his office in
order to expand the facility.
In one area, he plans to cre-
ate a replica of a real-life jail
cell, complete with concrete
walls and steel bars, as a way
to allow youth to see, first-
hand, what life is like behind
bars.
Until then; Mr. Lawton's
goal is to reach as many teens
and young adults as possible
through his program, and in
turn, create responsible
adults, stronger families and
a safer environment without
putting a drain on society.
"I can't tell a kid what to do;
that's not why I do this," Mr.
Lawton said. "I just show.
them what happens when
they make the wrong deci-
sions."
The next Reality Check
program will be March 7
from 1 to 4 p.m. at Primerica,
River Crest Professional Cen-
ter, 3452 N. Harbor City Blvd.,
Melbourne. Registration is
required.
Mr. Lawton will also have a
booth set up at the Better

Water, sewer hook-up fees to


go up in West Melbourne


By David Kearns
dkearns@hometownnewsol.com
WEST MELBOURNE In an effort to
recoup some of the costs needed to build
more water and sewer facilities, the City
Council voted Feb. 3 to increase the connec-
tion fees to the city's water and sewer lines.
The city's water system hook-up and
impact fees, including fees passed along
from the city of Melbourne, will increase
from $1,433 to $2,590 in 2009 per standard
connection, with stepped jumps to $4,108
by 2013, according to the new schedule.


State Farm
From page A8
that State Farm has
referred to policyholders
in the past year.
"I could not approve the
withdrawal plan State
Farm submitted, because,
as Florida law states, I
believe that plan was
'hazardous' to State Farm
policyholders and the
public," Commissioner
McCarty said in a press
release. "State Farm
intended to dump all of its
customers into Citizens,
and that is not acceptable
for their customers or for
the people of Florida."
Commissioner McCarty
said the state is currently
aware of about 15 insur-
ance companies that have
expressed interest in
accounting for State Farm's
500,000 policies.
"Today's news brings
clarity to thousands of
Floridians who can now
begin planning their
insurance transitions from
State Farm Florida," said
Alex Sink, Florida Chief
Financial Officer, in a press
release. "It is appropriate
to hold State Farm Florida
to high standards and
require an orderly transfer
within Florida's private
property insurance
market."
Michal Connolly, a
spokeswoman for State
Farm, cited a decline in
resources making it
difficult for the company
to cover future claims and
expenses.
"It's been a very hard
decision for us to make,"
Ms. Connolly said.
While news has spread of
the potential drop, the
company insists nothing
has been made final as of
yet.
State insurance regula-
tors said the pullout must
still be approved by the
state and, if it is, State
Farm customers about
1.2 million of them won't
be affected for at least nine
months.
In Brevard County, the
decision would affect
nearly 34,000 policyhold-
ers.
Established in 1999,
State Farm Florida is a
wholly owned subsidiary
of the State Farm Mutual
Automobile Company.
Following billions of
dollars of losses during the
2004 hurricane season,
State Farm Florida bor-
rowed $750 million from
State Farm Mutual to
continue operations and
has been unable to pay off
that debt, officials said.
Rising operating costs,
declining revenues,
increased claims and
Florida's unique exposures
to hurricanes were cited in
the company's unsuccess-
ful attempt to get a rate
increase approved, Ms.
Connolly said.
In a written finding
issued in December,
administrative law Judge
Daniel Manry recom-
mended that the Office of
Insurance Regulation not
approve the rate increase
because State Farm Florida
failed to prove that the
proposed rate increase is
"not excessive, inadequate
or unfairly discriminatory."
The judge did not find
that the rates requested
were excessive, the report
noted, but rather that State
Farm Florida failed to
prove that they weren't.
The proposed pullout


The sewer system connection and impact
fees will increase from $2,045 to $3,000 in
2009 for standard connections and remain
at the $3,000 level for the next few years,
according to information provided by the
city.
The City Council voiced concern over new
fees as proposed during the Jan. 20 City
Council meeting as combined water and
sewer fees would have immediately jumped
to more than $10,000 per household.
City manager David Reynal said Tuesday
that assuming the city does not disconnect
See Fees, All


will affect insurance
coverage for homeowners,
renters, condominium unit
owners, personal liability,
boats, personal articles
and business property.
State Farm said it would
continue to market auto
and life insurance and a
full range of financial
services products.
By canceling current
customer policies, State
Farm runs the risk of
losing the more lucrative
auto policies, which are
often bundled with prop-
erty insurance for a multi-
line customer discount,
Ms. Connolly explained.
"This decision was put
together with much
thought and considera-
tion," she said. "This is the
plan we have to follow
right now."
Some homeowners say
that they want nothing to
do with the company or
any insurance companies
it recommends.
"I'm sure they're making
money off of those refer-
rals," said Jim Daughtle of
Merritt Island, who
manages a Brevard-based
construction company. "I
don't want to give them
anymore (money). It's not
right what they're doing."
But state insurance
regulators say that many
options are available to
affected homeowners
throughout the state.
More than 30 new
companies have started
writing property insurance
in Florida since 2006, said
Ed Domansky, Florida
Office of Insurance Regula-
tion spokesman.
All of those companies
must meet strict financial
standards and are
reviewed regularly, he said.
Some are even offering
special discounts and
offers for new customers,
while a few have launched
advertising campaigns
targeted specifically at
previous State Farm
clients.
"Most, if not all, of State
Farm customers will find
alternate coverage," Mr.
Domansky said
Since approval of the
withdrawal was
announced, customers
must receive a six-month


notification of non-
renewal.
Non-renewals would
occur over a period of two
years to allow customers to
acquire coverage in an
orderly fashion, State Farm
officials said.
State Farm clients
throughout Florida will
continue to have their
property insured covered
until their policy expires.
Mr. Domansky said that
while this can be a trou-
bling time for homeown-
ers, it is also an opportuni-
ty for consumers to
evaluate their current
coverage.
He advises residents to
contact independent
insurance agents and visit
Florida's Office of Insur-
ance Regulation Web site,
www.shopandcompar-
erates.com, which offers a
starting point for residents
to compare rates.
"Shop around and see
what else is out there," Mr.
Domansky said.

THE IIM E.UT TO

THE A|LL GAM4E


Baseball



players hit



the field


By Tony Judnich
Judnich@hometownnewsol.com
VIERA The boys of
summer are back in town.
The Washington Nation-
als recently returned to
their spring-training home
at Space Coast Stadium,
where they will play their
first pre-season home
game Thursday, Feb. 26,
against the Detroit Tigers.
The Nationals' 2009
spring training schedule
includes a total of 15
home-contests, most of
which will be played in
March. All of their games
at the red, white and blue
Space Coast Stadium are
against other Major
League Baseball teams,
with the exception of a
March 3 exhibition game
against Italy's World
Baseball Classic team.
The Nationals have
conducted their spring
training at Space Coast
Stadium and its adjacent
practice fields since the
team's inaugural season in
2005.
The Florida Marlins


practiced in Viera from
1994 to 2002, and the
Montreal Expos conducted
spring training there in
2003 and 2004 before their
reformation as the Nation-
als.
The Viera Co. donated
the land on which Space
Coast Stadium was built. It
opened in 1994.
The county owns the
8,100-seat facility at 5800
Stadium Parkway and
leases it to the Nationals.
"We've been averaging
about 4,500 fans per
game," Thomas Bell, the
Nationals' director of
Florida operations, said
recently.
He said while the
majority of Nationals' fans
at the home games are
full-time Brevard County
residents, more "snow-
birds" from the Washing-
ton, D.C., area, who live
here during the colder
months, have been
attending the games.

The Washington Nationals Major League Baseball team is in town for their spring training season. Pitchers and catch-
ers were the first to arrive Monday, with the rest of the team joining them at the Space Coast Stadium in Viera shortly.

Fees
From page A9
with Melbourne's water sys-
tem, it can do away with as
much as $30 million for a
proposed water treatment
plant. But that still leaves
needed water storage tanks,
new transmission lines and
an upgrade to the existing
Ray Bullard Sewage Treat-
ment Facility.
The improvements to the
sewage treatment facility,
alone, are expected to total
more than $16 million, Mr.
Reynal said.
"I only hope the word
'gradual' is defined," said
resident Harry Stapor.
Indeed, said Mr. Reynal,
the schedule was specific
putting most of the change
during the initial jumps on
combined fees that will
become effective within 45
days.
But softening the blow for
new impacts is a flagging
economy, which makes the
bidding environment more
favorable from the city's
perspective, Mr. Reynal
said, in the form of more
competitive bidding.
There are provisions with-
in the new rule, allowing for
the city to change the rate of


increase in the unlikely
event the market immedi-
ately improves and costs for
the new capital improve-
ments moves up faster than
new development can pay
for it with the fees.
For an idea of what new
improvements are still on
the table, a new water line
on Minton Road is expected
to cost $4.5 million, and
water storage tanks, one on
Minton Road and one West
of Interstate 95, are each
expected to cost the city $4
million, according to infor-
mation provided by the city
staff.
In other city matters:
I The city council voted to
increase fees of handi-
capped parking violations
to $250 within the city, as
well as stiffer fines on other
violations.
I The city manger was
directed by the council to
come back before the board
at the Feb. 17 meeting with
recommendations for
improving the city clerk's
office. The city clerk's office
has experienced delays in
recording and transmitting
the meeting minutes, and is
several months behind
schedule in that regard,
according to West Mel-
bourne Mayor Hal Rose.

A taste of


Broadway

R residents ofBrevard
took a bite out of
Broadway last
weekend. When two hit
shows that have previously
played the Big Apple hit the
stage in our county, I was
fortunate to see them both.
Emma's Attic at Titusville
Playhouse, 301 Julia St.,
Titusville, presented "Who's
Afraid ofVirginia Woolf."
With Gail Doscher and Tony
Ormand in the lead roles of
Martha and George, this
show spotlighted the not-
so-pretty side of married
campus life in a small town
during the 1960s. With a
vintage period set, the story
came to life under the
patient tutelage of director
Janet Bentley-Hallberg.
Sean Taylor and KerryWard
played guests Honey and
Nick, newly-appointed
young professor and his
wife who have yet to age
into the roles of George and
Martha.
Delivering snappy
dialogue and rolling with
the waves of emotion, the
actors put forth perform-
ances no less impressive
than those seen on the
Broadway stage.
Be sure to catch future
performances at the
Titusville Playhouse,
especially those in Emma's
Attic. Call (321) 268-1125 to
learn what is playing.
"The Sound of Music"
offered its final perform-
ance last Sunday in the Life
Center Theatre at Holy
Name of Jesus Catholic
Community, 3050 N. A1A,
Indialantic. Playing to a
packed house with standing
room only, the musical was
every bit as good as I
expected it to be. Excep-
tionally cast by director and
choreographer Terry Lynch,
the show reflected as much
talent as any on Broadway,
down to the artistic details
of the set.
Lighting and sound were
as professional as they
come, enhancing the
performances of Helen
McCrary as Maria Ranier,
Mansoor Khan as Capt.
George von Trapp, Lisa
Farrall as the Mother
Abbess and the rest of the
cast members, too numer-
ous to list here. Musical

Splash into vibrant watercolors

Brevard County Watercolor Society E 1 ,'I
to host annual art show


By Jenet Krol
Krol@hometownnewsol.com
MELBOURNE Bre-
vard County artists awash
with talent will showcase
their best artwork at the
annual Brevard County
Watercolor Society art
show Feb. 20-21.
"It's an opportunity to
highlight all of our mem-
bers' work and a time for
the community to come in
and recognize what talent
we have in Brevard Coun-
ty," said Linda Neal, presi-
dent of the Brevard Coun-
tyWatercolor Society.
This will be the 14th
annual show hosted by
the Watercolor Society.
This year, the show is ded-
icated to Ed Morgan, a
member of the society
who died in June, said Ms.
Neal.
His painting, "Guitar
Man," won first place at
last year's show and will
grace this year's event
poster. His wife, Barbara,
will carry on his tradition
and have his artwork
available for purchase at
the show, said Lolly Wal-
ton, 2009 show chair-
woman.
The Brevard County
Watercolor Society is the
largest countywide water-
color society in the
nation, with more than
200 members from Sebas-
tian to Titusville, said Ms.
Walton.


Members need only
have a love for watercolor
painting to join, she said.
"You don't need to know
how to paint."
The society offers five
three-day workshops a
year taught by high-pro-
file watercolor artists for
members who want to
learn or improve their
techniques.
The art show helps raise
funds to support these
classes, as well as sponsor
scholarships the society
provides to Brevard Com-
munity College students
interested in pursuing the
fine arts, said Ms; Neal.
This year's event will
include demonstrations
from the Florida Associa-
tion of Chalk Artists, who
will create a sidewalk full
of chalk drawings, a por-
trait demonstration and
"paint around," where five
artists will take turns
working for 15 minutes on
five different still-life
paintings.
More than 150 original
watercolor works will be
available for purchase at
the show.
Attendees can expect to
see a range of artwork
from realistic to abstract,
said Ms. Neal.
"Everyone has (his or
her) own voice and we
showcase it," she said.
Close to 80 paintings
will be judged by visiting
artists from the American

entries along with seven
merit awards, said Ms.

"It's our annual oppor-
tunity for our best talents
to be judged and award-

STAR SCOPES
James Tucker
Week of 2-20-2009
Aries-March 21-April 19
Life is looking positive for
you, Aries. You have a great
friend and protector in
Mars. Now is the time to
launch new projects. Your
energy and natural rhythms
will be strong for the next
three months. When you
get that right feeling within,
listen to it, trust it and act
on it. It is your instincts giv-
ing you the green light to
go.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
Making a list every day of
the things and events you
need to address will help
keep you focused on the
most important. Keep
working off the top of the
list. Pace yourself. You don't
have to get everything done
at once. Less important
ones can wait. Stay cen-
tered. There is calm at the
eye of the storm. You will
prevail.

Gemini-May 21-June 21
When you give, you give
freely. You have a great
reservoir of love and talent
to draw from. Your sensitiv-
ity to others keeps you
moving in the right direc-
tion. Just be careful about
overextending yourself.
Sometimes less is more.
Your very first impression is
always the best when your
heart is open and you are
listening.

Cancer-June 22-July 22
Life continues to roll along.
Your attention to detail is
what keeps you from
becoming overwhelmed.
Your strong sense of
responsibility is one of your
greatest virtues. Your won-
derful attitude toward fami-
ly and others keeps you
going. You are on the verge
of much positive growth in
the New Year. Keep on
keeping on.

Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
Life continues to move
along at a timely clip for
you. Leo the lion is strong,
fast and hardy. He or she is
a formidable foe when
challenged and emerges a
winner and victorious over
life most of the time. Also,
you have a very large heart.
Continue to speak openly
about how you feel and
what you want. Others will
respect you for it.

Celebrate black history with food


H ello smart shoppers.
Hope you had a good
week.
February is Black History
Month, and before the
month is gone, I must share
some delicious recipes.
When I previously wrote a
recipe for black-eyed peas, I
received an e-mail from a
reader with her family story
and recipe. Sylvia's Florida
heritage goes back for
generations, before Florida
became a state. Although
not black, her recipe is truly
ethnic. I will include the
recipe in Bessie's Hoppin'
John.

BESSIE'S HOPPIN'
JOHN (BLACK-EYED
PEAS)
at least 4 servings
regular and low fat
Bessie Stuart, a black
friend of mine, who has
since gone to be with the
Lord, gave me her family
recipe. Served over rice with
a side of corn bread, it is rib-

sticking and wonderful.
Using ham instead of pork
or bacon makes it low fat.
1 large package black-
eyed peas
1/4-pound salt pork or
bacon, cut up, or 1 ham
hock, or chunks of ham
1/2-teaspoon each, salt
and pepper
1 large clove garlic,
chopped
1 large onion, chopped
Hot sauce (optional)
Cover peas with cold
water; discard any that float.
Drain. Place in pot, cover
with water. Bring to a boil,
reduce heat and cook for
two minutes. Cover and let
stand for one hour.
NOTE: You can let peas
soak in the pot overnight.
This method removes most
of the gas-producing
properties.
Drain peas and return to
pot. Add the ham or salt
pork, salt and pepper and
about 1-1/2 cups water.
Cover and cook for one
hour.
Add garlic, onion and a
few dashes of hot sauce and
cook until peas are tender.
The gravy will be thick. Add
more water if necessary.
Serve over rice with corn


bread.

SYLVIA ANNE
HENDRY'S
S BLACK-EYED PEAS


Follow basic recipe using
3 cups of water for each
pound of peas. Add 1 cup of
rice 1/2 to 3/4 hour before
serving. Top the finished
product with cut-up
summer squash, corn and
whole okra and cook
covered for about 3 minutes
until okra is slightly under
cooked.

FROGMORE STEW
serves 8 (NIB)
We enjoyed Frogmore
stew at my son Bill's home
in South Carolina, and
along with the recipe I got
some history. Frogmore is a
town located in the low
country, just outside of
Beaufort, S.C., where the
stew was created by slaves.
Crabs were added when
available.
6 quarts of water
1/4-cup seafood boil
(found in supermarket in
spice section)
1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1 teaspoonWorcester
shire sauce
3 tablespoons salt,
divided*
2 cloves garlic, peeled
4 extra-large onions,
peeled and halved
8 to 10 medium-size red
potatoes, whole and


unpeeled
2 pounds smoked
sausage, cut into 2-inch
pieces
12 ears shucked corn on
the cob, broken into 4-
inch pieces
4 pounds large shrimp,
unpeeled
In a large stockpot,
combine the water with
next five ingredients, bring
to a boil. Use half the salt
and taste-test at the end.
Add potatoes and onions,
cook for 15 minutes. Add
the sausage and cook for 5
minutes. Add the corn and
cook for 5 minutes longer.
Add the shrimp and cook
until pink, about 3 minutes.
Drain and serve.
I served this dish the
authentic way; try it. Cover
the table with newspaper,
place the bowl of stew in the
center, pass around the
plates and silverware and go
at it!
Cut the recipe in half
using 2 tablespoons seafood
boil, 1/2-teaspoon each of
Tabasco and Worcestershire
sauce, and 4-1/2 teaspoons
salt. The rest is easy to
divide.

AFRICAN-
AMERICAN BENNE
(SESAME) SEED
COOKIES (NIB)
1 cup sesame seeds,
about
2 (2-ounce) containers*
1-3/4 cups all-purpose

1/2-teaspoon baking

1/4-teaspoon salt
1/2-cup butter or butter

1/2-cup brown sugar,

1/4-cup sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
Place sesame seeds into

or until lightly browned.
Cool completely.

Junior League program promotes
awareness of childhood obesity


By Tammy Roberts
Roberts@hometownnewsol.com
Moms, put down those
utensils.
The kids are taking over.
For the fourth consecu-
tive year, the Junior
League of South Brevard
will host its "Kids in the
Kitchen" event March 7, a
program designed to
educate families about
childhood obesity and
poor nutrition.
"Women and children
are really the primary
focus of the Junior
League," said Rebecca
Wood, public relations
chair for the Junior League
of South Brevard. "The
start of this program had


AC*A, th I


to do with the alarming
statistics surrounding
childhood obesity. Our
organization wanted a way
to provide parents and
children with specific
ways to promote a healthy
lifestyle."
This year's event, hosted
at the Melbourne Auditori-
um, will feature a dietician
lecture, family activities,
obstacle course and
hands-on cooking sessions
by local chefs, including
Darlene Hardister Hue-
mann, cookbook author
and head chef of Hula Girl
Caf6 in Melbourne.
At the same time, the
Junior League will also
host its annual Health and
Wellness Fair, which will


Sta ir


feature a variety of local
businesses promoting
everything from sports
and fitness classes to
health products and tips.
In past years, anywhere
from 300-500 children and
their families have attend-
ed the event.
Launched in 2006, the
Junior League's Kids in the
Kitchen program is part of
a nationwide initiative of
the Association of Junior
Leagues International.
With the participation of
more than 225 Leagues, it
was created as a way to
help communities address
the urgent issues sur-
rounding childhood
obesity and poor nutri-
tion.
According to the Centers
for Disease Control and
Prevention Web site,
www.cdc.gov, nearly one-
third of children about 9

million in the United
States are overweight or
are at risk of becoming
overweight. This fact
increases their chance of
developing health prob-
lems such as Type II
diabetes, high blood
pressure and high choles-
terol.
The Web site also
estimates that overweight
children and adolescents
have an 80 percent chance
of becoming overweight
adults.
"Each year, the Junior
League of South Brevard
improves the health and
lives of more and more
children in our communi-
ty," said Melissa Reeder,
League president. "When
there is a crisis facing a
child or family, the JLSB is
there. Poor nutrition and
childhood obesity is an
epidemic, and we're
prepared to give kids at
risk a new start."
Created in 1969, the
Junior League of South
Brevard currently has
about 75 members
throughout the southern
part of the county.
The organization is
made up of women

More from the merchandise show


ne great thing about
the annual PGA
Merchandise Show is
spending time with my
fellow golf media and
friends. We usually end our
long, tiring week with a
great dinner on our last
night and a round of golf the
next morning before
heading home.
Having dinner together
gives us one last chance to
relax and share our stories
from the week. The golf
allows us to test out a few of
the new products given to
us and to share them with
each other before returning
home.
For some of us, it may be
the last round of golf until
the snow thaws in the
spring. Fortunately, I do not
fall into that category.
This year Chevy's Fresh
Mex Grill www.chevys.com;
(407) 827-1052, located in
Lake BuenaVista, just a hop
away from Downtown
Disney, was our host. The
atmosphere is quite festive.
It's definitely a place for
diners of all ages.
We started off our dinner
with a pitcher of Chevy's
famous classic Margaritas.
We toasted the week that
had been and welcomed the
first moment in nearly a
week to get off our feet and
forget about work.
From there, our host for
the evening brought us an


endless supply of chips and
salsa to get us in the proper
mood. For our main course
we chose from sizzling
fajitas, quesadillas, enchi-
ladas, burritos, tacos and so
much more. I loved the
shredded beef filling, and
was fortunate enough to
listen to our host and gave
the marinated, slow-roasted
pork a try as well. Every-
thing was delicious.
For dessert, Chevy's
features a traditional flan
and a couple different
sundaes. We had the deep
fried ice cream. Imagine
vanilla ice cream rolled in
cinnamon and deep fried,
served with whipped cream
and a homemade chocolate
sauce.
Our dining experience
was the perfect end to a
tough week of work. We left
feeling full and relaxed and
vowed to make Chevy's part
of our annual tradition.
The following morning, it
was time to pack up, check
out and enjoy one final
round of golf. Stoneybrook
West, www.stoneybrook-
west.com (407) 877-8533,
just off Florida's Turnpike in
Winter Garden, rolled out


the welcome mat and
provided us with a perfect
venue to test our new
products and get in a few
more swings.
The Arthur Hills design is
managed by Kitson and
Partners Clubs, which
operates or consults on
more than 50 courses in 12
countries. Stoneybrook
West is but one of several
central Florida courses the
company manages. It offers
one of Orlando's best tests
of golf and perhaps the
area's finest greens. Ranked
second in the state in
Golflink.com's "Best Cours-
es in America" and named
by "Golf Digest" as a "Best
Places to Play 2008-09," the
course features some of the
best greens I have ever
played. Seeded with Tif
Eagle, the greens are
legendary for their speed
and true rolling surfaces.
Stretching out to a beastly
7,101 yards, from the back
tees, but with three other
sets of tees for those not
quite ready for the chal-
lenge of the PGA Tour,
StoneybrookWest allows
golfers to decide just how
much of a challenge they
want to make their round.
If you've ever wondered
what it would be like to play
the crowned greens of
Pinehurst No. 2, here is a
great place to start.
My short game was tested


as never before at Stoney-
brook West. Most of the
areas surrounding the
greens fall away from the
putting surface and are
closely mowed. This allows
for a plethora of shots and
challenges your imagina-
tion with green-side shots.
Although it cost me more
than a couple of strokes, I
grew to enjoy the challenge.
The course features a
beautiful clubhouse,
complete with men's and
ladies' locker rooms and a
complete practice facility.
After our round, we enjoyed
a cold beverage and a
satisfying lunch before
making the drive home.
StoneybrookWest offers
online specials and wel-
comes everyone visiting the
area to stop by for a round.
If you're looking for a
challenging round of golf
that offers risk and reward
on every hole, with an
option to play aggressively
or conservatively on every
shot, with greens unlike any
you usually find at home,
coupled with a friendly
staff, this is the course for
you.

an avid golfer and golf
enthusiast for 30 years. He
