Botanical Fest blooms


at Florida Tech March 7


By Tony Judnich

MELBOURNE Jerome Keuper, the
founder and first president of Florida Tech,
didn't have to go far to get away from it all in
the early 1960s.
Occasionally, "He would be missing from
meetings, and his assistant would find him
in the garden, wearing rubber boots and
planting palm trees," said Tama Johnson,
administrative assistant to Beverly Sanders,
Florida Tech's assistant vice president for
development.
The garden Ms. Johnson referred to is
now known as the school's Botanical Gar-
den. About 20 acres in size, it is a lush and
shady place with walking trails on which


visitors can gaze at a variety of palms, as
well as crotons, bronieliads, ferns and other
tropical plants.
"Our claim to fame is we have one of the
most historic royal palms in East Central
Florida," Ms. Sanders said. "Dr. Keuper
loved palm trees. They were his passion,
and we still have one of the royal palms that
he planted. It's estimated to be 50 years old
and it's right at the main entrance of the
garden."
About 5,000 people enjoy exploring the
garden during Florida Tech's yearly Botani-
cal Fest Plant and Garden Sale. The fourth
annual event is scheduled for 8 a.m. to 4
p.m. Saturday, March 7, on the school's

Agrees to live
on church roof
if parishioners
reach 1-ton goal
By Tammy Roberts
Roberts@hometownnewsol.com
When worship leader
Josh Wright told his con-
gregation that if it collect-
ed enough donations for a
food drive he'd spend one
week living on the
church's roof, members of
River Run Christian
Church in Melbourne did-
n't exactly believe him.
But much to their sur-
prise, Mr. Wright, 23, post-
ed a blue and yellow tent
atop the church's roof Feb.
23 and made it his nhew
home for the next seven
days.
"We weren't sure if he
would actually do it, but
the food drive sure got
everyone excited," said
Diana Porter, the church's
administrative assistant.
"We called it our 'Put Josh
on the Roof' food drive."
On Jan. 4, Mr. Wright,
who also serves at the
church's youth minister,
challenged the 300-mem-
ber congregation to
donate at least one ton of
food, or 2,000 pounds, to
be donated to the Brevard
County branch of Free
Centers of America.
From canned food
items and bottled water to


packages of rice and
spaghetti, the church col-
lected 2,273 pounds of
food in less than two
months.
"We're so proud of the
amount of food that was
collected," said Mr.
Wright, who resides in
Melbourne. "To be honest,
it wasn't that bad up there.
It's definitely been an
experience."
After working out the
exact criteria of the chal-
lenge, it was determined
that Mr. Wright was to
return to his tent after his,

workday
was over. He could use the
church's restroom and
other amenities as need-
ed.
"Basically, whenever I
would normally go home,
I would just go to the
tent," he said.
Mr. Wright stocked his
two-person backpacking
tent with an air mattress
and blankets, a bedside
lamp, a plastic chair, a
standalone fan, a small
heater, books and a cooler,

For the past seven years,
Joany Marcouiller, 29, of Mer-
ritt Island, has devoted all of
her time to caring for her hus-
band, Scott, after a car acci-
dent left him paralyzed from
the waist down.
Across town, Christy and
Donald Long of Rockledge
have dedicated their lives to
caring for their five children -
one of whom is disabled -
and Mr. Long's mentally
challenged sister, who has
Down syndrome, while still
finding time to help other
children with disabilities
throughout the county.
In addition to caring for
her younger son, Wade,
Tracy Derrick-Doane of Port
St. John took on the role of


caregiver 13 years ago, when
her 16-year-old son, Travis,
was diagnosed with muscu-
lar dystrophy.
While most careers occur
during a set period of time,
these full-time caregivers
never get a day off.
Whether they're tired, sick
or emotionally drained,
each is 100 percent commit-
ted to fulfilling his or her
daily responsibilities.
"What these people do on
a daily basis is truly amaz-
ing," said Valree Peralta,
community services man-
ager for Wuesthoff Hospice
& Palliative Care. "We want-
ed to recognize them for

"I've had all the necessi-
ties of life, really," Mr.
Wright said. "Although, one
night it was so windy that I
thought people were sur-
rounding the entire tent
and shaking it so I would
wake up. It freaked me out a
little bit."
While the journey to the
roof isn't for everyone, Mr.
Wright said he did have a
few visitors, including his
wife, Jill, who brought him
photos of family and
friends to post inside his
tent.
"She wasn't too excited
about the idea of me being
away for a week at first, but
she's spent a lot of time here
with me," he said.
River Run Christian
Church is a non-denomina-
tional community that fea-
tures two Florida campus-


es, one in Chuluota, as well
as the Brevard campus on
Croton Road.
The food collected during
the church's drive will- be
donated to a nonprofit
organization run by church
members Alan and Anna
Payne.
The Paynes created Free
Centers of America Feb. 27
in Palm Bay, a program
operated through Mirror
Image Ministries, which
offers everything from food,
clothing and toys to job
classes and family
resources for disadvan-
taged families throughout
the county.
"No one takes too much
and no one takes too little,"
said Mr. Payne. "As the
economy gets worse, the
only way we're all going to
survive is if-we ban together


and help one another."
The 2,000-square-foot
facility, which is set up like a
home, runs on donations
from various organizations
and individuals throughout
the community.
"Sleeping on the roof is a
small price to pay compared
to all of the people in this
community who don't know
where their next meal is
going to come from," Mr.
Wright said. "It's the least I
could do to encourage our
members to help those less
fortunate in our community."

which will have more than
30 plant and garden ven-

well as garden accessories.
Okie LoPresti, owner of
GTC of Brevard on Merritt

"Believe it or not, there
are a lot of people who col-
lect palm trees," Mr.
LoPresti said. "We grow
things that you normally
would have to go down to
Miami to get."
Botanical Fest also will
include a "Kids Corner," fea-
turing hands-on gardening
activities for children.
And visitors will once
again have the opportunity
to explore the Botanical
Garden. Guided tours will
be given of this tropical par-
adise, and master gardeners
will be on hand to answer
gardening questions.
Proceeds from Botanical
Fest will be used to help
maintain the garden, where
people will be able to see the
historic royal palm Mr. Keu-
per planted decades ago.
"Not many royal palms
survive this far north," Ms.
Sanders said. "I think we're
lucky because it's in a well-
insulated place. Not too
much cold gets to it."
The festival will take place
at Florida Tech on West Uni-
versity Boulevard, just west
of Babcock Street. Signs and
volunteers on West Univer-
sity Boulevard and Country
Club Road will point the
way.
If you cannot make it to
the festival, you can still visit
the Botanical Garden
another time: it's open to
the public daily until dusk.

BMX track crosses the finish line


Paro ait


By Tammy Roberts
Roberts@hometownnewsol.com
A 14-year-old boy from
Melbourne is having trouble
keeping his grades up.
A recent ,Cocoa High
School graduate struggles to
find a career path that is
right for her.
A father and son from
Satellite Beach are looking
for a way to spend some
quality time together.
These residents and hun-
dreds more have found
common ground with the
completion of a nationally
sanctioned BMX track in
Palm Bay.
A collaboration between
the city of Palm Bay, Action
Youth. Mentoring and the
Rotary Club of Palm Bay, the
county's first National Bicy-
cle League BMX track will
break ground March 8, with
Sthe hope of creating a path
for local youth to work, play
and thrive.
Track creator Jason Jones
has come a long way, gain-
ing the support of numer-
ous volunteers, businesses
and city officials, to make
his dream a reality.
"We've done it for the
right reasons," said Mr.
Jones, founder of Action
Youth Mentoring. "That's
what's going to make it so
successful."
A Palm Bay resident, Mr.
Jones created Action Youth
Mentoring, a nonprofit
organization, in 2005 as a
way to help mentor local
youth through active partic-
ipation in action sports.
'Growing up, these types,
of sports always had such a
positive effect on me," he
said. "I wanted to find a way
to share them with kids
today."
After researching BMX
racing and the many
National Bicycle League
tracks that exist throughout
the United States, Mr. Jones
embraced the idea of
designing one in Brevard,
,but added a slight twist to
'the concept.

Joseph Fonte, 14, of Palm Bay tests a jump at Rotary Action Park before it is officially
open. The volunteers pictured observe in the background as their hard work is put to
good use.


Rather than volunteers,
his public track would be
operated by youth and its
amenities would cater to
youth.
."It's theirs; it was designed
just for them," Mr. Jones
said. "We haven't even offi-
cially opened yet, but I can
already see the impact it will
have. The park is already
proving to be the magnet for
these kids that I hoped it
would be."
Assuming roles in media
relations, advertising and
video productions, local
youth, especially those who
may have fallen off course,
will be placed on a positive
path through the program.
Mr. Jones also hopes to
work with the Greater Palm
Bay Chamber of Commerce
to create a youth ambassa-
dor group made up of track
volunteers.
"It's one thing to teach
social skills in a classroom
setting, but it's another to
mentor a kid while he's
doing something he really
enjoys," Mr. Jones said. "It's
an entirely new perspective
on teaching social skills,
such as conflict resolution


and teamwork, to kids."
Mr. Jones also teamed up
with the Brevard Business
Leadership Network, where
he serves as a career special-
ist, to bring in children and
teens with disabilities to
participate in data entry,
maintenance and other
roles at the track.
Founded in 2005, Brevard
Business Leadership Net-
work is a nonprofit organi-
zation designed to promote
employment opportunities
for qualified workers who
have disabilities. Ini turn, the
organization also works
with local businesses and
organizations in the recruit-
ment, training and retention
of these employees.
"There is such a need for
these types of job1 opportu-
nities for our youth," said
Betsy Farmer, executive
director. "The fact that Jason
is doing it through sports is
a no-brainer, really."
The theory behind the
concept is that if the organi-
zation can get children and
teens excited about work-
ing, they will acquire a sense
of. belonging and motiva-
tion.


"Often times, kids just
need that extra push to
show them that they do
have these types of skills,"
Ms. Farmer said. "Once a kid
connects with something
and finds their passion, it
can make all the difference
in the world."
The connection between
these youth and those with
behavioral problems is one
that the organization
believes will produce amaz-
ing results.
Mr. Jones' idea for the
track has gained national
attention in the past year,
with interest from city lead-
ers as far away as Colorado
and Arizona, as well as sup-
port from the Ohio-based
National Bicycle League.
"We think what Jason is
doing with the vocational
training is such an awesome
idea; no other track has ever
done it before," said Donna
Smith, senior field director
for the National Bicycle
League. "What Jason is
doing is going above and
beyond the typical BMX rac-
ing scene. Once he proves

Officials warn that flu strain 'appears' resistant to TamiFlu


By David Kearns
dkearns@hometownnewsol.com
MELBOURNE Flu season is
here, according to the Brevard
County Health Department.
Along with it, department offi-
cials are concerned tests show
that the H1N1 strain of the
influenza A virus seems resistant
to TamiFlu, the popular pill
medication given to flu sufferers
after they come down with a case
of the flu.
The pill has the active anti-
viral medication .called
oseltamivir phosphate.
The goodnews is that washing
your hands four times a day,
along with getting 'a flu shot is
still the best and most effective
way to prevent the flu.
Dr. Olga Emgushov, director of
epidemiology for the county
health department, said that the
H1N1 strain was resistant to the
antiviral medication TamiFlu in
72 out of 73 samples sent in
December of 2008 to the Center's


for Disease Control and Preven-
tion in Atlanta from doctors
offices reporting cases nation-
wide.
Dr. Emgushov said type A
influenza has two varieties
which are named H1N1 and
H3N2 because of the protein
spikes on their surfaces.
Think of a round sphere (that's
the virus), with barbs on it (the
proteins). One strain has square
boxes for barbs, while another
has cylinders, for example.
Every flu season, viruses
mutate naturally. This is called
"genetic drift."
It is not thought that use of the
prescription medication has
caused the drift in this case,
according to a health depart-
ment press release.
And the other strain of influen-
za A, or H2N3, as well as the sin-
gle strain of influenza B, both
seem to be treatable with the
active ingredient in TamiFlu, Dr.
Emgushov said.
Also, an inhaled antiviral med-
ication, Relenza, is still consid-


ered effective against both
strains of influenza A, and the
single strain of influenza B, said
Dr. Emgushov.
As for the number of flu cases
in Brevard, the data is still being
compiled and is currently
unavailable, she said.
However, there is enough
information out there to say the
flu season is here, she said.
According to
http://www.doh.state.fl.us/dis-
ease_ctrl/epi/htopics/flu/2009/ind
ex.html Brevard is listed as hav-
ing sporadic cases throughout
the county.
The state reporting system for
flu-like illness has four levels of
severity.
"0" for no activity.
*. "1" sporadic, i.e. isolated
cases of laboratory conforma-
tion of influenza.
"2' localized influenza, like
illnesses detected by two report-
ing systems.
"3" Widespread with three or
more reporting systems detect-
ing influenza-like illnesses and


or outbreaks.
"No outbreaks at this point
but we have had more cases
reported," said Dr. Emgushov.
"The flu that we are seeing does
correlate to the flu shot."
That means you can still get
the shot for the flu and prevent
it, provided you do so before
you come in contact with the
virus.
On average, 32,600 people die
every year from flu-related ill-
ness. However, most of those
people are either above the age
of 65, below the age of 2, or
have immune weak systems.
Of the young, otherwise
healthy people who die from flu
related illnesses, many have
bacterial infections, which
spread to the lungs, Dr.
Emgushov said.
A strong staph infection that
gets into the lungs of the flu
sufferer, this combination can
be very dangerous, she said.
Student athletes need to be
extremely careful about wash-


ing themselves after competi-
tion and immediately treating
cuts and rashes that have arisen
from workouts or competition.
"If you have a skin infection,
you need to take care of it right
away," said Dr. Emgushov.
Also parents with small chil-
dren need to remember that
aspirin is not recommended in
treating fever and pain in those
cases, owing to liver complica-
tions, said Dr. Emgushov.
The base treatment for the flu
is rest, fever and pain medication
in the form of Tylenol and
Motrin.

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/df6796c2c498743985256cc7000ad5cb!
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 commis-
sion. 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 not 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 officials.
(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 if I used no water at all, I would still receive a
bill for at least $47. There is no trust in government at any level.
Cat's out of the bag

Well-;the cat's out of the bag publicly to the American public
now, r should I say all the American public. Bernie Ma4pffanci
his pals outsmarted evenWall.Strae.. Oh. not all of Wall Streett;
most were part of the "-od ol'bo.*'collapse. The honest, if any,
didn't want to hear the warnings or maybe they were part of it
and wanted it to go away. I'll bet he and his cronies bankrupt.
California. What other state has the income from, for instance,
actors taxes from movies. They have to buy multi-million dollar

properties to keep their incomes from father taxman, the gov-
ernment, that is now bankrupt, and most corrupt anyway. The
cost of living in California is obscene. Awood frame house, with
two bedrooms, and one bath on a postage stamp size lot for
$250K?? And the taxes on them, ugh. And that was (more than)
10 years ago. Although it's easy to place blame, don't blame it on
(Gov.) Arnold (Schwarzenegger).
Well, at least Bernie will have the "penthouse" in Camp Fed.
He topped them all in scamming. Dennis Kozloski of Tyco only
had a $200 million scam. Jerry Skilling of the Enron crash devas-
tated an empire and killed hundreds of people, (Jack) Abramoff,
the lobbyist snake, is a leach and I could go on. They are only in
the millions. Sir Madoff outsmarted them all and if he lives to be
100 he'll come out of the camp and retrieve what he's hidden.
He may only be able to afford one multi-million dollar pent-
house in NewYork and one home on some exotic island. We all
have to sacrifice. Woe is me.
The investigators have already found millions. A drop in the
bucket compared to the billions he's scammed, the people he
emotionally not to mention financially put to death. I say
throw away the key. Maybe he can bail out California.
Oh, and by the way, put bro' and all others involved in his
"good ol' buddy" scam in the same "penthouse" cell, together.
* Why waste cells? More "good ol' boys" are on their way now that
the cat is, almost, out of the bag and we need the space. They
are such good buddies, they should be housed together. Think
about it, 10 buddies to a 6-by- 10 cell. Oh, the justice of it all.

- Don'Uoss lit cigarettes

Last May, Palm Bay and surrounding areas were devastated
by a number of fires throughout the community. (Fires) also
did loads of damage to other areas in central Florida. (The
fires were) costly and put the lives of our firefighters, rescue
workers and police officers in grave danger. When we drive
through the community, even today, we can see palmetto
trees and others that bear the scars of the fiery flames. More-
over, in some areas, we see homes that crumbled under the
flames. How terrible this must have been to have happen
during a time of a recession. We cannot imagine how many
creatures' homes were destroyed, or even their young.
According to news sources, the fires were generated by an
arsonist, maybe two. God only knows. Yet in my travels on the
highways, as well as through the neighborhoods of Palm Bay,
I have witnessed cigarettes being tossed from car windows,
all too often. I am) not certain if these cars are without ash-
trays or if the owner does not want to dirty their ashtrays. The
part that is disturbing is that when the air is dry, the earth is
dry and the wind is blowing, sparks can and will grow
into raging blazes.
(As) we will approach the dry, windy season again, I am
reminded of a commercial I used to see as a child. The com-
mercial had a bear in it and the slogan was, "Only YOU can
prevent forest fires." It would be nice if our stroking commu-
nity would remember those words. It would be nice if the fires
of May 2008 would remain in our memories.
It would d6 us all a world of good to be more considerate of
the lives of the creatures we have been blessed with.
Perhaps by way of the media, (we will) remind our smoking
community to not toss their cigarettes from their car win-
dows. Perhaps we should bear in mind that there are some
states that award an enormous ticket and community
service for such an offense. Or perhaps, we could make a note
and attach it to our car dashboards that "Only YOU can pre-
vent forest fires."

Why so many foreclosures?

I am really upset at all the data and percentages given at
"every news hour," either on radio or TV; about the people
losing their homes.
Granted that we are "worldwide" cruising through bad eco-
nomic times. So have I in the past, but I never lost my house.
Yes, I went through a bankruptcy, had a car repossessed, a
boat, too, but never lost my house and don't intend to unless
there is a tsunarqi or nuclear war.
Didn't people in the past few years, who committed them-
selves to a mortgage, tdol a simple pencil and paper calcula-
tion (to see) if they could really afford that house? (Perhaps
they should have thought), "If I (purchase a lower-priced)
home, no bank can take it from me in case I am unemployed
for a few months."
Having a roof over your head should be a priority, meaning,
that if you can't afford to buy, then rent. So what? I lived in
NewYork state in the early 1980s and I couldn't afford a house
until I came to Florida in the early 1990s. I always was renting.
So what? A car or a boat are not necessities, especially if you
live in a metro.area. That is why some sort of mass transit
always exists. Even Melbourne and Palm Bay have transit
buses running.
Farmers could only afford work trucks and not with leather
seats or air conditioning, so they could go to the markets and
trade their produce or grain, etc. These trucks were not for
vacationing or going to the horse track. Yet some people
(would) rather give up their houses and keep their late-model
cars, trucks and boats. Then, when they move to a rental
property because they have no choice, they tell everyone they
own it, all thanks to the Joneses.


Why so many foreclosures? Don't people have brains ny-
more? If you can't afford it, don't buy it. And even rore
important, don't buy it if you don't have the required dwn
payment. This is a sure way to make your mortgage payment
foreclosure proof.

Winning

This is a follow-up to "Soccer parents embarrass kids," pb-
lished in the Dec. 5 edition of the Hometown News.
I have waited for a rematch between Melbourne I-h
School and Palm Bay High School girls' varsity soccer'teais
since this viewpoint was printed. Both teams played for ie
District 6, Class 6A final Friday, Tan. 23 inVero Beach and M-
bourne defeated Palm Bay 4-0.
Everyone on and off the field, on both Palm Bay and M-
bourne (sides) was well-behaved. I witnessed none of te
"fat-ntouthed, ill-mannered buffoonery" at the district final I
saw two teams playing their hardest to win the district title
Let me ask a few questions. You wrote, "I, as a parent, vll
never know if (Melbourne High) truly deserve their (unc-
feated) record." Do you believe Melbourne deserves it now
You got your "rematch" and we "let the girls both yots
and mine play their game." Now, do you think the Mt-
bourne Bulldogs are "perhaps deserving of their undefeated
record," which is 19-0-1?
Another question has puzzled me since the initial gare
played Nov. 20: Tell me how "missing key fouls that needless
hurt the team from Palm Bay" actually hurt the Palm Bz
team when there were something like 19 fouls against Me
bourne and three fouls against Palm Bay that evening?
Let's congratulate these two teams for being the champion
and finalist in District 6 and stop making excuses. They a
work hard and put forth their best efforts.
Now, that's "winning and you know it."

How low can home values go?

It seems only reasonable that home values will continue t(
decline as the state of education in Florida continues t(
decline. As public schools go more and more underfunded
the value of homes will continue to go down because the peot
ple who move to Florida and buy homes and help the econo-
my to flourish will be those who are working and drawing ar
income. It's a shame to admit it, but the truth is, many of those
who'are retired saw a lot of their retirement investments gob-
bled up by a strong downturn in the market and thus to shore
up Florida's economy, especially homes and home values, we
need to shore up the situation with public schools.

House bobcat with feral felines

I read with concern about a bobcat in the Melbourne area
and also about the feral cat colony. I think the Humane Soci-
ety should capture the bobcat and place it in a feral cat colony.
There would be a balance of nature somewhat like wolves
and caribou. We could humanely solve the problem and it
would be in the natural course of things.

Probation in Brevard County

Probably half the population in Brevard County is on proba-
tion. There's no work whatsoever. I go to court and see 7-year-
olds getting DUIs and. people on NyQuil getting DUIs. It's
completely ridiculous. If you take the alcohol out of the state,
how is the state going to run? Alcohol, tobacco and prescrip-
tion drugs are the only things that run the state of Florida. You
have to spend money on classes, lawyers and court costs. And
there's no work in the county to get a job to pay the costs.

About homeowner's insurance

Your article on State Farm was good; however, I believe you
left out the most important item when writing about home-
owners insurance companies:
Our state government has allowed insurance companies to
"break away" from their parent company, which makes it
look like the company will fail if not given high rate increases.
Their "parent" companies continue to have millions in profit.
This action by our government was a big disservice to Florida
citizens. While the government has, in the past couple of
years, admitted that this was done, they don't give out the
names of the government officials or legislators who were
responsible and foolish voters continue to re-elect the same
corrupted officials who got us into this mess.

Why burn?

It is that time of year again when the arsonists and firebugs
employed by our government try to justify their passion for
igniting fires under the guise of the title "controlled burns."
The alleged benefits of purposely burning wooded areas that
might never burn naturally in our lifetime is nothing but
"junk science," pure and simple.
In the past three days, (more than) 3,372 acres of wildlife
habitat have been torched in Brevard County alone. Since

Rants
From page A6

these fires are ignited in sev-
eral areas of a burn location
simultaneously, local wildlife
have a slim chance to escape.
"Back burns" are also started
and block off any potential
escape routes for the trapped
animals, resulting in the
inhabitants of the area being
incinerated. Naturally occur-
ring wildfires are usually
started by a lightning strike
in a single location and are
accompanied by downpours
that limit the spread of the
blaze.
These prescribed burns
cause tons of hydrocarbons,
including carbon dioxide
and carbon monoxide, to be
released in the air we
breathe, endangering our
health and the health of our
children. Eating establish-
ments are now designated
"no smoking" by law to pro-
tect customers, yet Florida
residents are often forced to
breathe -eye-watering,
smoke-filled air for days on
end as a consequence of
these burns. Why is the Envi-
ronmental Protection
Agency overly concerned


about vehicle emissions by
even requiring catalytic con-
verters on lawn mowers,
while this major source of air
pollution goes unchecked?
Controlled burns get out of
control all too often.
Remember what happened
in Malabar last year? The
smoke induced "fog" limited
visibility causing large .scale
vehicle pileups on our road-
ways resulting in injury and
death.
' Are people so ignorant that
they believe the few ques-
tionable benefits outweigh
the documented perils of
these destructive fires? Will
we continue to watch silently
while the air we breathe is
further polluted and our
woodlands and National
Wildlife Refuge are
destroyed?
Editor's note: William L.
Farmer of Brevard County
Fire and Rescue responded to
this rant as follows:
This person is hugely
wrong utilizing only (his or)
her perception. Florida's
entire ecosystem is based on a
fire-based program. Some
form of vegetation only ger-
minate as a result of fire.
Native wildlife have evolved
to adapt to such an eco-sys-
tem.


Controlled, or prescribed,
burns are done slowly in sec-
tions allowing wildlife to
move prior to the fire in most
instances. Far more wildlife
and wildlife habitat is killed
(or) destroyed during a wild-
fire. Fuel reduction reduces
large-scale wildfire. Prior to
1998, there was very little pre-
scribed burning and the
resulting fuel load drove the,
intensity of those fires.
During our transition from
the dry season to our rainy
(and) tropical season, light-
ning is indeed the customary
cause of wildfire; however,
there is rarely an accompany-
ing "downpour" Usually the
rain falls in Orange County
and all we get on the coast is
the :lightning. Furthermore,
we can easily get in excess of
30 strikes, stretching fire
resources throughout the
county. In 1998, we had (more
than) 200 strikes resulting in
54 fires one Sunday after-
noon.
Prescribed burning is envi-
ronmentally friendly, and
protects our homes.

obey traffic laws, I thank the
Titusville City Council for
considering this ordinance
(regarding the implementa-
tion of red light cameras.) I
do take exception to a state-
ment by Councilwoman
Martha Long: "People are
hurting now" meaning
finances. I wonder how she
or others would feel about
hurting, financially and
physically, if they were to be
struck by someone running a
red light? Too many times, I
have observed motorists
speeding up when the traffic
light changes to yellow so
they can "beat the light." If
she feels that it is a "public
safety issue," then why worry
about the financial hard-
ships of scofflaws?
Another public safety issue
is electronic sirens. Many
times they cannot be heard
until the emergency vehicle
is about 100 feet from you,
depending on which way the
wind is blowing. I feel that
the sirens should be returned
to the old-fashioned com-
pression type. At least they
can be heard over a quarter
mile away, regardless of wind
direction. Please, city and
county officials, at least look
into and consider that
avenue of public safety.

Ms. Peralta, who has been
with Wuesthoff since 2005,
created the organization's
Labor of Love program sev-
eral years ago as a way to
honor caregivers from
throughout the county for
their dedication to others.
"This has been such a
rewarding experience for
me to see how truly humble
these people are," Ms. Peral-
ta said. "I've been so
impressed with the caliber
of people that we recog-
nize."
Each caregiver is selected
on. a monthly basis by a
Labor of Love committee
through the request of a
friend, coworker or family
member, who sends in a
nomination.
Once selected, Ms. Peralta
and a fellow staff member
present the caregiver with
the award and provide them
with a care package full of

With the help of nearly
$250,000 in in-kind dona-
tions and about 4,000 yards
of clay, the 2-acre track on
Osmosis Drive is in its final
stage of completion.
On Saturday and Sun-'
days from noon to 4 p.m.,
the facility is hosting a track
"orientation" for people of
any age and any skill level to
tour the track before it offi-
cially opens in the next
month or so.
"Because BMX racing is
such a new sport, a lot of
parents don't really know
what exactly is involved,"
Mr. Jones said. "We explain
the racing aspect and how
it's competitive,, while
stressing our emphasis on


gift certificates and items
from various local business-
es.
A longtime sponsor of the
program, Indian River
Cruises has donated gift cer-
tificates for family cruises,
sunset cruises and private
party cruises in the past.
"We love being a part of
this program because we
can not only help provide
some relaxation for the care-
giver, but also for their fami-
lies," said Mark Strauchman,
captain and co-owner of
Indian River Cruises. "It's
our way of rewarding these
people for all that they do."
Another supporter of the
program is the Seaside
Piecemakers Quilting Guild,
which has more than 300
members from Palm Bay to
Cocoa.
Each month, the club
donates a handmade quilt
to the Labor of Love winner.

The orientation is also an
opportunity for participants
to sign up fQr the Rotary
Action Park BMX competi-

next season.
Once the BMX track is up
and running, Mr. Jones
plans to begin another
fundraising effort to com-
plete a nationally sanc-
tioned off-road remote con-
trol track on the property.
Through the entire proj-
ect, Mr. Jones was pleased to
gain support from the city of

impacted by the current

a mile away.
Stone is located at the cor-
ner of Lipscomb Street and
University Boulevard.
Cmdr. Ron Bell of the Mel-
bourne Police Department


said the pursuit began with
an attempted traffic stop
near Redwood Street and
Almond Boulevard, across
Lipscomb Park from Stone
Middle.
He said police "suspected
a drug transaction" had
taken place with the suspect
vehicle before attempting to


make the stop around 11:45
a.m.
Hearing the officers men-
tion Lipscomb Street
through radio chatter sent
Mr. Johnson into action dic-
tated by school board proto-
col.
Mr. Johnson said he didn't
want a fleeing suspect driv-
ing or running onto his cam-
pus during lunchtime so all
the gates were locked, as
were the classrooms.
Stone Middle remained
on lockdown while a Bre-
vard County Sheriff's Office
helicopter was called to the
scene.
The neighborhood was
cordoned off but police lost
the suspect near dense
woods to the southwest.
The helicopter was unable
to spot the suspect either,
Cmdr. Bell said.
Through it all, the school
remained on lockdown. It
was inconvenient and dis-
rupted schedules but it had
been necessary, both men
agreed.
Had there been no school
resource officer, and then,
had the suspect managed to
flee onto school grounds, it
could have been a recipe for
disaster.
"Most of the people who
live in this neighborhood,
know this school," said Ofc.
Ashouri. "What if (the sus-
pect) got on school.

taken a hostage?"

School District has not yet
cut the budget to eliminate
the officer positions, Mr.
Johnson said.
That could change after
the state legislative session
in April, say district officials.
The district is considering
cutting all 15 resource offi-
cer positions from middle
and elementary schools,
said Christine Davis, direc-
tor of School District Com-
munications.
The decision will be made
after the state legislative ses-
sion ends.
"Having an SRO (school
resource officer) gives us the
time we need to lock the
school down. The police
response in this area is very
good but having her here
cuts it way down," Mr. John-
son said.
He recalled an episode in
which a father who was not
on the list of those approved
to take their children from
the school demanded to do
so anyway.
Having Officer Ashouri on
the scene immediately dif-
fused the situation, Mr.
Johnson said.
But the relationship
between the resource officer
and the school goes deeper
than that, said Officer
Ashouri.
The seven-year veteran
Melbourne police officer
has spent the last two years
at Stone Middle.
She is worried that this
will be her last year here,
and she will not be replaced
next fall.
Everybody loses if that
happens, she said.
If a student comes to
school armed with a
weapon, she is trained in
how to disarm someone. A
dean or an administrator is
not.
From the moment she
arrives, the police car out
front has produced a calm-
ing affect upon the students.
"On days when I am not
here, when I am away on
training, they know it," she
said. "You can tell the differ-
ence in their behavior.",
She said she provides crit-
ical information to multiple
law-enforcement agencies,
including an anti-gang task
force.
Two violent gangs have
staked out territory to the
east and the west, with
Stone Middle as a potential
recruiting ground for both,
she said.
She knows whether the
kids display rosary beads or
bandanas which gang they
are affiliated with.

Officer Maya Ashouri
School resource officer


year-old victim occurred
around 7 p.m. just outside
the school grounds.
"We had a basketball
game in the gym the night
before," she said.
Ofifcer Ashouri, a BCC law
academy graduate, who
considers Brevard her
home, frequently stays on
campus during the basket-
ball games and other
evening activities to make
sure students are safe.
She and school dean Jud
Kaminski work out of
adjoining offices.
If a student gets in trouble
in class for fighting, for
instance, Mr. Kaminski has
only to escort the child a few
paces for a talk with law
enforcement, where Officer
Ashouri can read laws,
statute by statute, detailing
infractions and potential
penalties.
"We have kids here who
are on probation," Officer
'Ashouri said, adding that
she is able to watch out for
these students and make
sure they re-assimilate into
the school system after their
brush with law enforce-
ment, just as she is able to
keep an eye out for the safe-
ty of the other students.
Without having her on
campus, neither would hap-
pen.
Cmdr. Bell said there are
just a few individuals in the
vicinity of the school that
give the entire area a bad
name through involvement
with crime.
And yet Stone Middle
rises. Stone Middle School
enjoys an A rating as tested
by the FCAT, owing to its
strong emphasis on the fun-
damentals, said Mr. John-
son.
Its science research
department is considered
among the finest programs
in the state. It also has an
excellent track, and basket-
ball program, and music
department.
The calming affect of hav-
ing a resource officer is an
integral part in the success,
said Mr. Johnson.


Andrea E. Alford, director
of district and school securi-
ty, agrees that these resource
officers should not be sacri-
ficed during budget cuts.
There are 40 officers work-
ing throughout nine agen-
cies within eight cities and
the county, she said. They
work with 13 different law
enforcement districts.
The cities pay half the
salaries for the officers and
the school district covers the
other half which, in most
cases, costs about $28,000
per year, per officer to the
district.
In the case of unincorpo-
rated areas of the county,
one officer is shared
between schools.
"A school is like a city, and
rather than have to call in
someone from the outside,
(a road patrol officer) these
schools can call the resource
officer who knows the kids,"
Ms. Alford said. "It is very
difficult to go backwards.
We're (potentially) going to
be removing this layer of
protection."
Middle school children
are at a particularly vulnera-
ble age, as this is when they
begin pushing boundaries,
Ms. Alford said.
The resource officers are
involved in peer mediation,
and helping to teach stu-
dents respect for each other,
for their teachers. The offi-
cers also project a positive
image for law enforcement
to he children at an early
age.
Invaluable, incalculable,
life-saving intelligence has
been gathered by resource
officers working in all area
schools, Ms. Alford said.
"We can't afford to lose
those," Ms. Alford said.
The school district, how-
ever, will be forced to cut as
much as $66 million from its
budget following the end of
the state legislative session
in April or early May, said
Ms. Davis.

s Emil Buehler Center for Aviation Training now open


FITs Emil Buehler Center for Aviation Training now open


By David Kearns
dkearns@hometownnewsol.com
MELBOURNE The
future of flight is here at
Florida Tech.
That future is computer-
enhanced, fly-by-wire and
in a growing number of
cases, it's unmanned and
remotely-controlled.
Aviation needs the pilots,
operators, air traffic con-
trollers and airport man-
agers for both the military
and civilian markets.
Florida Tech's Emil
Buehler Center for Aviation
Training and Research at
Melbourne International
Airpor, was dedicated Fri-
day, Feb. 20.
In essence, this is a com-
pletely revamped flight
school designed to keep up
with the changing face of
aviation, school officials
say.
A host of local. digni-
taries, joined professional
aviators, flight school fac-
ulty and members of Florid
Tech's board of trustees for
the center's coming-out-
party.
The upgraded school
"will be there to provide
21st century training for
21st pilots, flying 21st cen-
tury vehicles.," said Win-
ston Scott, Florida Tech's
dean of aeronautics.
On hand were pilots and
instructors of the famed
Tuskegee Airmen the first
African American pilots in

Deadline for registration is

the U.S. Army Air Corps.
Mr. Scott a former astro-
naut and a jet pilot in the
U.S. Navy was most thrilled
to present the school to the
veterans of World War II.
"I was thinking of the
first airmen when they flew
the P-51. The flight controls
we all had were computer
supported," he said.
Now aviation includes
"remotely piloted and
unmanned vehicles."
With a new addition to
the Florida Tech facilities
and a slight move to the
west at Melbourne Interna-
tional Airport, the universi-
ty plans to be right in the
thick of things.
School President Antho-
ny Catanese said Florida
Tech aviation graduates
continue to find work in s
slumping job market this
year whereas others with
only a degree in flight
might not get the job.
"The kind of comprehen-
sive training we offer here
allows them to take their
management skills and
continue with their love for
aviation," Mr. Catanese
said.
Construction began on
the 12,000-square-foot
facility and 17,000 square
foot hangar in 2008 with a
nearly $1.5 million gift
from the Emil Buehler Per-
petual Trust.
Emil Buehler was a pilot
and aviation visionary born
in Germany, who at 17 flew


for Germany. during World
War I.
After graduating
Stuttgart University he
moved to the United
States where he continued
his dual passions of flying
and aviation design.
Owing tb his close asso-
ciation with flight and
education, the Emil
Buehler Mach 3 Wind Tun-
nel is now found at Rut-
gers University in New Jer-
sey.
In 1984, a perpetual
trust foundation was
established to honor him.
FIT's new building with
all enhancements, is only
one of several aviation
facilities nationally that
bear his name. It is now
valued at just more than
$5 million according to the
office of university com-
munications.
Just down the road from
the center is the Northrop
Grumman facility and
hangar.
On Feb. 17, Northrop
Grumman made a $1 mil-
lion gift to Florida Tech's
annual student engineer-
ing and design competi-
tion.
Northrop Grumman is a
serious contender for a $1
billion contract to pro-
duce eight Global Hawk
spy planes for NATO; only
one of several remotely-
operated vehicles in its
arsenal.
That means jobs


through tough times.
"There's going to be plen-
ty of work for our future
graduates," said John
Thomas, director of athlet-
ic partnerships for the uni-
versity.
Mr. Thomas is also the
vice mayor of the city of
Melbourne.
He was joined by Mayor
Harry Goode, who is also
the chairman of the Mel-
bourne International Air-
port Advisory Board.
Members of the public
were given a glimpse of
several state-of-the-art
flight simulators at the new
facility.
J. Bruce Bennet, a
Tuskegee airman flew the
P-51 Mustang and the B-25
for the U.S. Army Air Corps.
He also flew helicopters for
private industry.
He watched as high
school student Charles
Lane of Sebastian, trained
on one of the school's.sim-
ulators.
"We flew by using the
needle ball and the air
speed indicator. You flew by
the seat of your pants," Mr.
Bennett said.
When asked what he
could have done with all
this modern equipment in
his day:
"Oh my God," he said,
simply shaking his head
afterward.

S saturday brought
sunshine and perfect
temperatures for a
day on the water, so I
joined some friends for a
trip on Goat Creek in
Valkaria. While my friend
and her husband paddled
their canoe, I steered my
newly acquired kayak,
following their lead. Of
course, I accepted the
proffered "man help"
hoisting the kayak into
the trunk of my car. It
jutted out about two feet
but the pull-down back
seat section added about
14 inches to the trunk
space one reason I will
miss my Ford Taurus
when I retire it in the near
future.
We parked beside the
Indian River Lagoon and
headed north on the
lagoon. With shallow
water and an extensive
sand bar, the trip to Goat
Creek via the lagoon gave
second thought to making
that section of the trip in
the water. On the return
trip, we opted to walk this
section and drag the

while dragging it across
the shallow shoreline.
While "man help"
retrieved it for me, I
continued to paddle in
the creek to an area where
the rudder could be
replaced.
The term, "like a ship
without a rudder,"
became truly clear.
Without that little piece of
plastic, I zigzagged across
the water as I tried futilely
to make progress up Goat
Creek. Once "ruddered,"
the trip became a reality.
We were the only ones
on the water that morn-
ing and the peaceful
journey was relaxing and
enjoyable. Winding our
way between mangroves,
palms, hibiscus and trees
adorned with Spanish
moss, we observed a few

Rolling Readers Spring Fling March 21


By Tammy Roberts
Roberts@hometownnewsol.com
A recent survey per-
formed by the National
Department of Literacy
showed that children who
have not developed basic
literary skills b\ the time
they enter school are
three to four times more
likely to drop out in later
years.
"These are the types of
statistics that we try to
prevent," said Bonnie
Daniels, a program
coordinator for Rolling
Readers Space Coast, a
nonprofit literacy pro-
gram impacting children
in Brevard County. "It's so
important for us to reach
these kids especially
those struggling readers -
as soon as possible.
Reading impIroves their
self-esteem and boosts
their confidence level."
Created in 1997, Rolling
Readers Space Coast is
part of a grassroots
campaign designed to
encourage children to be
lifelong readers by
providing them with high-
impact program materi-
als, books and volunteer
services.
In the past 12 years, the
program has gained
hundreds of volunteers
from all walks of life to
connect with Space Coast
students through reading,
language skills and
imagination.
"Currendy, we've
trained more than 500
volunteers, and we need
every one of them," Ms.


Photo courtesy of Rolling Readers Space Coast
Jo Pearson, a 12-year volunteer with Rolling Readers Space Coast, reads aloud to a
class at University Park Elementary School in Melbourne.


Daniels said. "Especially
with the current state of
our education system,
students need our pro-
gram more than ever, and
our volunteers are the
only way to do that."
Rolling Readers cur-
rently operates three
volunteer programs. The
first is the Read Aloud
program, in which
volunteers spend about
30 minutes reading to
Brevard County Title I
I'ementary school
classrooms.
"Many times, the
children like the books
read to them by our
volunteers so much, they
begin to search for the
same titles and authors
on their own," said Kathy


Teresi, executive director
of Rolling Readers Space
Coast. "The children look
forward to this time and
enjoy discussing what
they've learned, often
comparing the situations
in the books to their own
lives."
In addition to Read
Al o ud, Rolling Readers
also sponsors a
Tutor/Mentoring pro-
gram, in which groups of
four volunteers visit with
four struggling readers
each week. The volunteers
encourage the students to
read aloud to them, while
targeting problem areas.
The Grade-Level
Reading Intervention
Program is another
Rolling Reader activity


that targets 8-'and 9-year-
olds and involves weekly
small-group sessions
conducted in a workshop
format, said Ms. Daniels,
who coordinates this
program alongside three
other volunteers.
GRIP leaders use hands-
on learning activities such
as games and puzzles to
reinforce reading skills.
"Some children don't
learn just by hearing." Ms.
Daniels said. "They need
to visualize reading skills
through unique activi-
ties."
After completing each
Rolling Reader program,
each participating
student is given a new

or gliding beneath the
boat. I noticed a number
of minnows in the
shallow water near the
creek banks, but was
disappointed that I saw
no turtles. I was not
disappointed to notice no
snakes.
Well up Goat Creek we
saw an estate that was a
photographer's paradise.
With a wide pasture, the
estate boasted a single
white mare that nibbled
on the green grass and
looked up only at her
leisure. When she did
deign to glance our way,
she did so with a direct
look that seemed to say
"what do you want?" At
creek's edge, there was a
small gathering of trees


with Spanish moss
trailing from its heights
to water's edge.
With limbs that bent to
another'forming a bench
of sorts, the trees created
the perfect setting for an
artist's portrait of two
lovers in a tryst or chil-
dren laughingly clamber-
ing aboard to play pirate.
Alas, there came a
point where we had to
turn around aAd retrace
our aquatic footsteps. But
the beauty of doing so
was that we were able to
repeat our delightful
cruise on Goat Creek.
Although we were
fortunate tha the cooler
weather inhibited the
insect population, I
prepared for the trip by
lathering all exposed skin
surfaces with bug repel-
lent and sunscreen.
My cap blew off when


we hit the lagoon on the
return trip, but I paddled
back and retrieved it with
the kayak's oar.
The water in the Indian
River Lagoon is quite
shallow until you get to
the Intracoastal Water-
way section, where it is
quite deep, but wear a
lifejacket, anyway.
If you want to fish, take
a small pole and bait, but
be sure to get a fishing
license or you run the
risk of being ticketed.
There are hundreds of
ways to access the
waterways of Brevard
County, including public
ramps, private docks or
directly from the water
banks. Just be sure to
park and access the water
legally.
Enjoy the waterways of
Brevard.

Brevard beaches lure spring breakers from across the nation


By Tony Judnich
Judnich@hometownnewsol.com
Some will travel hundreds.
- perhaps even more than a
thousand miles to enjoy
the sun, surf and sand of
Brevard County beaches.
At different times in
March and April, hundreds
of thousands of students
from colleges and universi-
ties across the nation and
outside the United
States enjoy a warm reprieve
from their studies. And
while it might not see the
crowds that will gather at
Daytona Beach or Miami's
South Beach, the Cocoa
Beach area is heating up
once more as Brevard Coun-
ty's top spring break hot
spot.
Spring break is definitely
the busiest time of the year
at Coconuts on the Beach in


Cocoa Beach, said
Coconuts' general manager
Christina Artz.
"We're like the No. 1 spot"
for spring breakers in Bre-
vard County, Ms. Artz said.
"We get a lot of Orlando kids
from (the University of Cen-
tral Florida)., but they just
come from everywhere at
different times in March."
For spring break, the busi-
ness hires about 30 extra
employees, many of whom
will stay with Coconuts
through the summer, she
said.
For the spring break
crowd, the business offers
drink specials, live bands
every night, karaoke on
Wednesday and bikini con-
tests on Thursdays.
The adjacent Cocoa Beach
Pier sees a mix of families
and college students enjoy-
ing spring break, said the


Andy Stefanek/staff photographer
The beaches in Cocoa Beach are full of people during spring break. Students from northern colleges like to come and
enjoy the sun and waves at many different places. The beach near the pier is an especially popular hangout.


Pier's comptroller,
Jaynes.


Jayne


The Pier was built in 1962
and includes five bars, four
restaurants, shops and. an
ice cream parlor.
"This time of year is when
our business picks up," Ms.
Jaynes said. "We see not only
college students, but fami-
lies. In Cocoa Beach, we're
more family-oriented than
Daytona Beach, although
we do get some college stu-
dents."
Like Coconuts, the Pier's
businesses hire more staff
for spring break and the
summer season, she said.
At the Hilton Cocoa Beach
Oceanfront ,- two miles
south of the Pier officials
see mostly families on
spring break, said Jason
McKee, the Hilton's director
of sales and marketing.
"We have really posi-
tioned ourselves to be fami-
ly-oriented," with a focus on
"those folks who want a


nice, relaxing vacation," he
said. "We see more families
on spring break with
younger kids who are about
age 8 to 14."
Recreational activities and
services the Hilton Cocoa
Beach Oceanfront has avail-
able for its guests include
family surfing lessons, a new
junior lifeguard program
and kayak and beach bike
rentals.
"For spring break, we
pretty much have a year-
round staff, but we do ramp
up on a lot more part-time
folks such as for our pool
deck bar and restaurant,
beach services, surfing les-
sons and pool deck rentals,"
Mr. McKee said.
A new study has found
that tourism has a $2.9 bil-
lion annual impact on the
Space Coast's economy, said
Rob Varley, executive direc-
tor of Florida's Space Coast


Office of Tourism.
While the study did not
have a specific breakdown
on the impact of spring
break, "March and April are
usually two of our better
months," Mr. Varley said. "I
would say a lot of businesses
rely on spring break time to
make or break their profit
for the year."
He said his office does not
market to spring breakers,
but relies on word of mouth.
Overall, "I would say we
have a less rowdy crowd
down here" for spring break,
Mr. Varley said.
Coconuts on the Beach is
at 2 Minutemen Causeway.

The right time for corned beef and cabbage


Hello smart shoppers,
hope you had a good
week. Remember,
March 17 is St. Patrick's Day
and we all know everyone is
Irish on that dayl
Corned beef and cabbage
is the dinner of the day.
There is really no way to
make corned beef a low-fat
meal, but you can make it
lower-fat than usual. Every
supermarket usually has
corned beef on sale, so look
for the best price, pick a flat
cut and try to find one as
lean as possible.
Smoked pork shoulder
may be substituted for
corned beef. It is much
cheaper, but is still a high-
fat meat. When you make
this dinner with smoked
pork shoulder it is called
New England boiled dinner.
The procedure is the same.
In my opinion a pressure
cooker is amust have,
especially for corned beef. A
4-pound corned beef will
take about three hours to
cook in a pot and only one
hour in a pressure cooker.
Our dinner will include
cabbage, potatoes, carrots,
onions and rutabagas. Omit
any vegetable you do not
like.
The difficulty in cutting a
rutabaga is over thanks to a
hint from one of my readers.
Place the rutabaga in a
plastic supermarket bag,
loosely tie and place on a
microwave-safe rack.
Microwave on high for 5 to
10 minutes. Carefully
remove from microwave
and rinse under hot, then
cold water. The wax clings
to the bag and the rutabaga,
though not cooked, is easy
to peel and cut.
For dessert, let's make a
pineapple pie. The dessert is
cream colored. A few drops
of green food coloring will
make it festive.
Enjoy, see you next week.

The Guru's special hint:
Tired of aluminum foil
tearing? Pay attention to the
little end tabs on the roll,
tuck them in; no more tears.

CORNED BEEF AND
CABBAGE
OR NEW ENGLAND
BOILED DINNER
serves 6

4 pounds corned beef or
smoked pork shoulder
1 tablespoon pickling
spices (maybe included
with meat)
2 large cloves garlic,
halved
1/2-teaspoon black
pepper
1 bay leaf
6 medium onions,, peeled
6 medium potatoes,
peeled
6 medium carrots,
scrubbed and cut in half
crosswise
1 rutabaga, peeled and
cut in 2-inch chunks
1 head cabbage, cut in six
wedges

Trim as much fat as
possible from meat before
cooking. Place in pot or
pressure cooker and add
about 2 cups water. (A
reader uses apple cider
instead of water and saves
Sthe leftover liquid to make a
pot roast. According to him,

it's delicious).
Add next four ingredients.
Cook covered about three
hours in pot or one hour in
pressure cooker following
cooker instructions.
NOTE: If possible, cook
meat the day before, chilling
the liquid separately. If not,
place the liquid in a cold
pot; toss in 10 or 12 ice
cubes and let it sit until fat
clings to the cubes. Remove
remaining cubes and fat
with a slotted spoon.
If liquid is too salty, keep
only one cup and replace
rest of liquid with water.
Bring meat to a boil in
liquid. When heated
through, remove meat to
serving platter.
If you're using a pot, add
carrots, and rutabagas to
the liquid. Cover and cook
about 15 minutes, then add
remaining ingredients and
cook until done, about 45
minutes.
In a pressure cooker, cook
vegetables for about 10
minutes.

This pie is a breeze, in 10

you will have a rich tasting

To describe Judaism
will take more space
than this column will
allow. One aspect of
describing my religion is
that Judaism is the most
powerful idea that the
world has ever seen and
Jews have a message that
the world needs to hear and
abide by.
The moral concepts of
many other religions are
based on the words of God,
who chose the Jewish
people to spread them to
the world.
Abraham saw the prob-
lems of the world thou-
sands of years ago and
realized that there is only
one great force behind all
things. He taught that God
cares about what we are
doing with His world and
wants us to take care of His
creation.
Judaism teaches lessons
that the world urgently
needs to learn.
Every person is created in
the image of God and is
therefore unique and
valuable.
Morality is not relative,
but absolute.
Humans are partners
with God in creation.
Even though Abraham
was able to spread this
message, he realized that it
could not change the world
for many generations and
that it would take not just

time, but much endurance
and pain. The Jewish
people who would carry
out his mission through the
ages would be threatened
with annihilation repeated-
ly. However, God promised
that He would protect and
save the Jews each time.
The promise has been
kept and, in the end, the
world will be transformed
into the way it was meant
to be a world of truth.
We Jews are Abraham's
children. We have carried
his message for thousands
of years. Logic alone cannot
explain our survival. Many
times in history, more than
my level of tears can weep
for, we were on the verge of
disappearance after being
battered cruelly and
mercilessly by the Egyp-
tians, the Babylonians, the
Greeks, the Romans, the
Crusaders, the Inquisition,
the Cossacks, the Germans
and rnany others.
In spite of this over-
whelming oppression, all
who oppressed us and
attempted to destroy us
have, themselves, ended up
adopting our ways. Every

corner of the world has
been transformed by the
message of Abraham, the
message of human dignity,
of purpose, of the oneness
of all things and of a caring
God behind all things. As
shown in the command-
ments given at Mount
Sinai, this way of life is a
revolutionary force that can
transform ordinary lives
into lives of meaning.
For this end, the Torah
includes the Seven Univer-
sal Laws of Noah, exclusive-
ly for gentiles as a way to
live a meaningful life.
We are reminded of what
is really important. There is
more to life than accumu-
lating wealth. We are not
mere animals that must
feed our every urge and
desire. Every human being
can become a light and
partner in fulfilling the
purpose of God's creation.
These bold Jewish ideas
are more relevant now than
ever as we seek to trans-
form a world of darkness
into light and contribute to
the unfolding of the
Messianic Era speedily in
our days.

T n years ago, shredders
I were found only in
n offices, Social Security
S numbers were used as
identification numbers and
people didn't think twice
about throwing canceled
checks in the trash.
Today things are different.
Shredders are a common
household appliance, the
Social Security number is no
longer used as a "public"
identification number and
most people think twice
about tossing canceled
checks and other confidential
information in the trash.
The reason for these
changes is that identity theft
is now the fastest growing
white-collar crime in the
nation.
Being a computer techni-
cian, I am consulted just
about weekly by people and
businesses on how to protect
personal and private infor-
mation.
At the start of these
consultations, we go through
a question-and-answer
period where I try to assess
where the risks are, what
kinds of information are at
risk, how that information is
stored and how that informa-
tion maybe vulnerable.
The more I do this, the
more I see certain patterns
emerge.
First, there seems to be a
misconception that identity
theft is primarily a financial
issue. In other words, people
are surprised to learn that
you can have your identity
stolen and never have it show
up on your credit report or
even have the event be
related to a bank account or
credit card.
If your identity is stolen, it
could be used by someone to
get medical treatment in your
name and next thing you
know, your medical records

Strawbeny Festival goes all weekend long this year


Takes place March 7-8 at Wickham Park Pavilion


By David Kearns
dkearns@hometownnewsol.com
MELBOURNE It's 21 years later
and the Strawberry Festival is still going
strong.
How does that happen?
With community support and tons of
strawberries.
This year alone, there will be 1,900
flats of strawberries, each containing
eight 1-pound baskets brought in
from Severt Sales growers of Plant City,
picked less than 72 hours-prior to the
event.
That means there will be about
15,200 pounds of strawberries brought
to the event scheduled for March 7-8 at
Wickham Park Pavilion in Melbourne,
said Kim Gabriel, spokeswoman for
Habitat for Humanity of Brevard Coun-
ty, event sponsor.
The first one-day event offered bas-
kets of strawberries and was hosted as a
simple fundraiser for Habitat for
Humanity at Front Street Park in Mel-
bourne.
Now, for the first time in more than 21
years, the event will expand to a two-
day affair. On the second day, two musi-


cal acts will take the stage, said Mrs.
Gabriel.
For the Music Fest 2009, the Sweet
Water Junction Band will perform coun-
try tunes from noon to 2:30 p.m. on Sun-
day, followed by Junior Doctor, a
"power-pop" band, from 2:30-5 p.m.
Favorites of the festival will include
food vendors such as Mel's Barbeque.
Chick-fil-A will sponsor the Kids' Cor-
ner.
Morning drive time DJ Timmy Vee, of
WA1A-FM-107.1, will emcee the event.
Also, during the event, there will be an
open car and bike show on Saturday,
March 7, which follows the ever-popular
pancake breakfast starting promptly at 7
a.m.
On Sunday, the festival will open with
a non-denominational service at 10
a.m.
The festival will feature more than 60
booths filled with arts and crafts. Admis-
sion and parking are free.

Humanity of Brevard County and the
Strawberry Festival, visit

"Habitat works with people who are

Habitat for Humanity makes use of a

Within this facility there is a ware-

Sweet Water Junction Band boasts country sound


By Tammy Roberts
Roberts@hometownnewsol.com
'Local country band Sweet Water
Junction,. gives new meaning to the
phrase, "family affair."
With a history dating back to the late
1940s, the nine-member band has
developed a sound that only a true
family could produce.
Raised on country music, Indiana
native David McDowell followed in his
father's footsteps and created the Sweet
Water Junction Band in 1979, a high-
energy country and southern rock
group, which he led alongside two
other musicians. During its run, Mr.
McDowell's wife, Sherry, ran the band's
lighting and sound operations.
Nine years later, the McDowells
decided to pack up and move to the
Space Coast, where they spent the next
few years raising eight children all of
whom developed a flair for music.
In 1995, the entire family started off
on a seven-year music tour, singing
and playing its own brand of Southern
Gospel music.
They performed at hundreds of
churches, festivals and concert halls
See JUNCTION, 7

For the first time, Sweet Water Junction Band will perform at this year's 21st annual Strawberry Festival The group's his-
tory dates back to the early 1940s and continues to steam through the Space Coast today.

Junior Doctor prescribes upbeat lyrics, rock energy
By Tammy Roberts

Three years ago, things were a lot dif-
ferent for the members of a rising local
power-pop band.
Textbooks and complex clinical stud-
,'-.... 'ies surrounded Mark Hartman, 25, the
band's frontman. Three of his rock-lov-
S" ing classmates faced the same chal-
lenges.
hAll four bright young minds were
amending a prestigious medical school
,at the time, but it wouldn't be long until
-."-their shared passion for music
-demanded center stage.
i- In September 2007, the guys traded
in their scalpels and scrubs for guitars
S, and rock T-shirts to form the popish
rock band, Junior Doctor.
The band mates used their tuition
money courtesy of mom and dad to
purchase high-end musical equipment
and released their first album, "Take
the Pain EP," under producer Matt
Goldman.
Their parents have since forgiven

Junior Doctor members Mark Hartman, Jarrod Kearney, Richard Peidro and Thomas DeSiena have developed a strong fan extremely supportive of the band's
endeavor, said Mr. Hartman, who
base throughout Brevard County and beyond. The group met in medical school and decided to pursue careers in music.

Fried Seafood Lovers.

flip over Boston The main difference behind _
RA 0 y ; .4


Beef & Seafood
By Kathy Reakes staff writer
CAPE CANAVERAL Strap on your bib and get
ready to enjoy some great seafood when you visit
Boston Beef & Seafood in Cape Canaveral.
Owned and operated by Charles Soffron, his wife
Kimberly, daughters Hannah and Stella, and vari-
ous other relatives, the small, nondescript'restau-
rant on State Road A1A is one of those places
that will fool you when you drive by.
I know I've driven by at least 100 times in the past
several months, wondering just what kind of
seafood and beef they serve in Boston.
Well, let me tell you, Bostonians like their seafood
fresh and fried, and their beef cooked so slow it
practically melts in your mouth.
Fresh is the key word when it comes to describing
the food. About the only thing you'll find frozen at
this restaurant are the french fries, said Mr.
Soffron.
In fact, the friendly restaurant owner is so serious
about fresh seafood, he drives to the Orlando air-
port several times a week to pick up his next
batch of seafood flown straight from his beloved
Boston.
He's able to provide such fresh seafood because
his family just happens to own a seafood company
in Boston. And, he does have a slight edge on
other local chefs because he just happened to
grow up in a family that boasts the man who
developed the "fried clams" of Howard Johnson
fame.
"My grandfather came up with the concept of fried
clams for HoJo's and helped them set up their first
several hundred restaurants," Mr. Soffron said. "I
think everyone I know spent part of their child-
hoods having fried clams at HoJo's on Friday
nights."
He's right about that. I know my family always
headed for the old Howard Johnson's in
Melbourne for the Friday night clam fest.


IV UI UII IIInlU %.II cL U an 10CJ 1 1
his grandfather's is that his ON 0 i-BE
are always made with fresh ftirfit tow
clams.
The-menu at Boston Beef &
Seafood is packed with
every kind of fried seafood
including huge shrimp, scal-
lops, oysters, belly clams
and haddock and flounder.
The menu also includes the other Boston favorite
of roast beef sandwiches that are served piled
high on a bun with mayo, cheese and a special
barbecue sauce from a favorite Boston restaurant
that only he has been able to convince them to
sell.
You'll also find burgers that are 100 percent steak
burgers and a few chicken dishes such as wings,
sandwiches and fingers.
A note here: Don't expect any fancy service or din-
ing experience. When you enter, you order at the
counter and everything is served in and on paper
and plastic, including the silverware. The napkins
are paper towels that'sit on the table, and your
beer will be served in a plastic clam bucket with
ice.
The family calls it an "eating in the rough" experi-
ence. I loved it. Everyone is so friendly and every-
thing so casual that I felt like I was at someone's
home fore great picnic.
My husband and I visited on a Friday night so we
could sample the Friday night lobster rolls the
restaurant has become known around town for.-
But Mr. Soffron had other plans. In addition to the
lobster rolls, he also whipped up a couple of bowls
of his award-winning clam chowder (his chowder
won the "best of show" award at the recent
Chowder Cook-off), a platter of fried seafood and
a huge roast beef sandwich. He topped off the
platters with homemade coleslaw, onion rings,
French fries and tartar and cocktail sauce.
Our entire table was covered with awesome food.
And, I don't say that lightly. I've. reviewed restau-
rants in Brevard County for more than 15 years
and Boston Beef & Seafood served the best fried
seafood I've ever eaten, anywhere.
The batter is light and tasty and the seafood is.,


fried to a nice golden brown. Every bite was
another delight, but my favorites were the had-
dock (it was so flaky and light it was incredible),
the shrimp and the scallops. My husband and I
were so busy stuffing the fried seafood in our
mouths we almost forgot all about the lobster
rolls and the sandwich. But we managed to
sample everything and the rumor around town
is right, the lobster rolls were great. The soft
grilled buns were stuffed full of fresh lobster in
a light sauce with plenty of flavor. The beef
sandwich, as I said before was equally as good,
with beef so tender it melted in my mouth. And
the chowder was some of the best I've had in
years.
My husband loved the fresh fried clams that
were plump and juicy and the oysters.
"Hey, I'm from Ipswich where clams are
famous. What did you expect?" Mr. Soffron said
with a big smile.
Other diners around us were just as pleased
with their meals, all telling the family they would
be back soon.
I know I plan to stop in at least once a week.
I'm glad I don't have to wonder anymore about
that little restaurant in Cape Canaveral.
Prices at Boston Beef & Seafood range from
$3.50 to $22.95 for a platter. The lobster rolls,
served only on Fridays are $13.95. Children's
meals are $2.50. Hours are from 11 a.m. to 8
p.m. Monday through Wednesday, from 11 a.m.
to 9 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and from
noon to 7pm on Sunday. The restaurant is
located at 6910 N. Atlantic Ave., Cape
Canaveral. Take out available. For information,

encouraged the former med-school
quartet to reside on the Space Coast.
As Junior Doctor's lead vocalist and
rhythm guitarist, Mr. Hartman teamed
up with longtime friend Jarrod Kearney,
22, on drums, Richard Peidro, 25, on
bass, and Thomas DeSiena on lead gui-
tar.
"This is our full-time focus now," Mr.
Hartman said. "But there's a lot more to
it then just sitting around playing
music. It's a business. A lot of work goes
into promoting our product and getting
ourselves out there."
Despite the often-demanding busi-
ness aspect, the band mates agree they
wouldn't have it any other way.
With its roaring guitar lines, catchy
lyrics and pounding rhythmic
sequences, Junior Doctor has gained
statewide momentum this past year,
while developing a large and dedicated
fan base.

Mission statement
Habitat for Humanity of Brevard County is an ecumenical
Christian housing ministry working in partnership with the
community of Brevard County to eliminate substandard and
inadequate housing by building simple, decent, affordable
homes in partnership with God's people in need.


Habitat
From page 3
for great success.
The Community Contribution Tax
Credit Program provides a financial
incentive a 50 percent tax credit to
encourage Florida corporations to
make donations toward community
development and housing projects for
low-income persons.
For an initial investment, the corpo-
ration can receive 50 percent of the
value of the finished home's appraisal
value, said Mrs. Gabriel.
"It was a hard sell. Some have said it's
just too good to be true," she added.
As an example, a recent $50,000
investment from corporate contributor
DRS helped to build a family home in
the Driskell Heights subdivision of Palm
Bay.


If the property appraisal value from
the county tax assessor comes in at
$100,000, the company has just earned
its money back in tax credits, plus the
appreciation of the community, Mrs.
Gabriel said.
"If is truly a win-win," she said. "It's
the community using all the resources
available. Habitat has a unique ability
of finding a way."
Several local churches have also
donated time and resources to the con-
struction of homes and Habitat for
Humanity of Brevard County welcomes
the opportunity to partner with people
of all faiths in its mission to provide

Habitat partners with

Youth Build to rebuild lives


Program helps Habitat
volunteers, future
homeowners
By David Kearns
dkearns@hometownnewsol,com
MELBOURNE Sometimes, it's
not just about building the houses.
Habitat for Humanity 'of Brevard
County president and chief execu-
tive officer Joe Gassman said some-
times his mission is also about
rebuilding the lives of those who
volunteer to support his program.
Habitat for Humanity of Brevard
has built 217 homes in the county,
he said.
And"yet, one of the things he is
most proud of is his nonprofit cor-
poration's relationship with the
Space Coast Youth Build program.
The program accepts about 25
young people every year between
the ages of 16 and 24 who have typi-
cally had some negative involve-


ment with law enforcement and
attempts to turn their lives around
by working with them through Habi-
tat for Humanity of Brevard, said
Michele Raymond, Youth Build
director.
The young adults are no longer in
school, typically without a GE, and
thus they are stuck, with nowhere to
turn in one of the toughest job mar-
kets in recent history.
This is where Youth Build, a feder-
ally funded program administrated
by Brevard Community College, and
Habitat for Humanity step in.
Participants spend half of their
time in the classroom working to get
their GEDs and the other half work-
ing throughout the county on Habi-
tat for Humanity of Brevard homes.
They earn minimum wage during
their 15 hours per week in the field
and can list the experience in vari-
ous construction trades on their
resumes.

"Today, it's all about image. (These young adults) want to
seem so tough. Then, after a while, it dawns on them that
someone actually does care about them, about the direction
they are taking with their lives. It's really something."

Joe Gassman

From page 13


tion of the people involved in the
program can be amazing at times.
"Today, it's all about image. (These
young adults) wantto seem so tough.
Then, after a while, it dawns on them
that someone actually does care
about them, about the direction they
are taking with their lives. It's really
something," Mr. Gassman said.
Habitat also works with folks who
are working off community service
hours.
Sometimes that means a college-
bound student trying to keep up with
requirements for the Bright Futures
Scholarship. Sometimes, they work


with a volunteer who has had a
minor brush with the law.
"After you've matured, you begin to
realize there is reconciliation for all
of us. There's always an opportunity
for that," Mr. Gassman said. "It's
about working with people with the
right attitude. Sometimes, the volun-
teer is just someone who flat out
believes in what we're doing. Habitat
becomes (a part of) their regular
schedule."

Students design for Habitat


For Hometown News
Brevnews@hometownnewsol.com
A Brevard Community College inte-
rior design class will help Habitat for
Humanity of Brevard County build two
houses in the Booker T. Washington
area on March 12 and April 16.
Ann Bettin, interior design instruc-
tor, learned about the project through
a community organization. The houses
will be built on the 1900 block of
Kennedy Street.
Students and members of the BCC
Interior Design Club will participate,
Ms. Bettin said. Students will help with
exterior vinyl siding and insulation on
March 12 and sod, landscaping, elec-
trical and trim on April 16.
The interior design class also is in
the process of designing a house for
the Habitat organization, Ms. Bettin
said. Habitat will take the best class
design and submit it to their engineers
to seal it.
"I am so excited for the students who
will be working on drawings and actu-
ally seeing in the field how it applies to
construction," Ms. Bettin said. "If all
goes well, this will be an ongoing proj-
ect, and each year, the Residential II
class will be able to design for Habi-


'


Joe Gassman, president and chief
executive officer for Habitat for
Humanity of Brevard County, com-
mended the students for their interest
in helping families. Mr. Gassman, a
former BCC student, also volunteered
at Habitat while earning credits for a
BCC Service Learning class.
"We've always tried to work with
local students, whether (they attend)
high schools or colleges," Mr. Gassman
said. "I believe they should have real
projects to work on. Most of our work
is volunteer work anyway. It's better
with students with new ideas. I started
as a BCC student working at Habitat
for Humanity. I've known for. a long
time there's quite the potential for new
ideas and innovative ways of thinking
when you go to local schools."
Dr. Katherine Cobb, provost of the
BCC Melbourne campus, said, "We
have some very dedicated and talented
students, and we are proud" to share
their talents with such a wonderful
organization as Habitat for Humanity.
Not only will their ideas and work
improve the end product, the opportu-
nity to work on a Habitat house will be
a valuable experience for the stu-
dents."
