By Tammy Roberts

Throughout Brevard County,
there are hundreds of different
faith-based organizations.
While each has its own religion
and belief system, one desire cross-
es all boundaries the need to
help those less fortunate.
This foundation is the basis for
the Brevard Interfaith Coalition a
project of Catholic Charities of
Central Florida -- and its upcom-
ing community events.

"It wasn't very long before our
members said they loved reaching
out to children, but wanted to do
even more," said Linda Wiggins,
coordinator of Brevard Interfaith
Coalition. "From assisting the
homeless and the elderly to those
with disabilities, they wanted to
cover the full scope of human serv-
ices."
With thousands of members rep-
resenting more than 500 churches,
synagogues, temples, mosques and
other faith centers throughout the
county, the Brevard Interfaith
Coalition created a Day of Service

Crosswinds launches street outreach


Volunteers provide
food, basic needs
to homeless teens
By Jenet Krol
Krol@hometownnewsol.com
For a teen forced to live on the
street, the warm weather and
beach community of Brevard
County offers the image of a safe
haven.
But, like anywhere else, living on
the street in Brevard County is
fraught with danger and uncertain-
ty.
Sexual exploitation, drug abuse
and gang violence are the largest
concerns for these young adults,
said Raylene Coe, street outreach
program coordinator for Cross-
winds Youth Services, a nonprofit
organization dedicated to helping
runaway and homeless teens.
Crosswinds was formed in 1974
after several homeless teens were
found murdered.
"Shallow graves were found in
the Canaveral Groves area and the
community got together to create a
homeless shelter, rather than have
(the homeless teens) fall into a per-
petrator's hands," said Karen Lock,
chief operating officer of Cross-
winds.
While it is difficult to get a precise
number, the volunteers at Cross-
winds have identified more than
100 homeless teens currently living
in the county after providing coats


"(Thveens) have to meet us hallway. We want them
to be an active participant in their path to progress."

and blankets to the homeless dur-
ing the cold snaps in January.
"It gave me the opportunity to
talk to the homeless and ask if there
were any kids out there. A lot were'
really agreeable to helping hook the
(teens) up with services," said Ms.
Coe.
Four nights a week, Ms. Coe and
AmeriCorps volunteers visit areas
identified as hangouts for the
homeless teens with their mobile
outreach unit, providing basic
hygiene supplies, such as shampoo,
razors, sunscreen, combs, food and
water.
A donation from the Central Bre-
vard Junior League has provided
toothpaste and toothbrushes.
It's not enough to live on, but it's a
way to make a connection with the
teens and inform them of the serv-
ices that are available to them, said
Ms. Coe.
"It's their choice if they want to
take the services. They have to
meet us halfway. If it's just for free, it
won't work. That enables them to
stay on the street. We want them to
be an active participant in their
path to progress," she said.
One of the main goals is to facili-
tate a connection between the


teens and a family member they
trust.
"When they drop out, it's hard to
reconnect. There aren't many
places to get on the Internet or
make a phone call for free. We want
them to contact one person they
trust and reconnect," said Ms. Coe.
Thanks to a $4,400 donation
from the Brevard Kiwanis Division
11, along with a $4,400 matching
grant from the Florida Kiwanis
Foundation toward the purchase of
an RV Ms. Coe hopes to provide
wireless Internet and a shower for
the teens.
Currently, the teens have the
option to visit Crosswinds Youth
Services in Cocoa to use the shower
at the shelter and visit the Brevard
Health Alliance's mobile RV for free
medical clinics once a week.
Twenty-one and younger is the
target age group for the outreach
program. Ms. Coe said she has
recently seen more 19- and 20-
year-olds living on the street.
"Their parents are fed up with
them living with them, and they
have no place to go," she said.
For children younger than 18,

Hospice


opens pet


food bank

By Jenet Krol
Krol@hometownnewsol.com
When struggling to feed a family or
pay bills, many people have to make
the heartbreaking decision to give up a
beloved family pet..
Recognizing the importance a pet
plays in a family, and the love owners
feel for their cats and dogs, Hospice of
Health First has opened a pet food
bank to help people keep their pets
during this tough economic time.
"It's apparent to us at hospice how
important pets are," said Cynthia Kop-
pler, a pediatric social worker with hos-
pice, who organized the food bank.
"We work with (animals) as therapy
pets and see how they help. We know
when people have to give up their pets
it just breaks their hearts."
The pet food bank not only provides
comfort for struggling pet owners, but
is helping children deal with grief.
Teenagers in the Brightstar Center
for Grieving Children and Families pro-
gram volunteer their time collecting
and distributing the food.
Interacting with the community
serves as a type of grief therapy for the
teens, said Ms. Koppler.
"When you have a lot of grief after
losing someone, you get so immersed

was March 30.
The Manatees are led by
manager Mike Guerrero,
who is entering his second
season at the helm. The
team is embracing the
mantra, "Fear the Sea Cow,"
while it looks to improve its
record from last season,
when it finished in eighth
place after winning 66
games and losing 72.
"Certainly, we want to
finish better than last year,"
Manatees general manager
Kyle Smith said on March
24. "What's different for us
(compared to major league
teams) is we never know
what to expect: we don't
know what guys we'll get"
on the team.
"You never really know
until a month in the season
what you have, and then
later in the season you send
some guys up (to more
advanced teams)."
For example, former
Manatee pitchers Omar


Aguilar and Donovan Hand
were selected to play in the
Florida State League All-
Star game in Viera last sum-
mer. They were not able to
participate in it, however,
because they had been pro-
moted to the Double-A
Huntsville Stars.
Darren Ford and Taylor
Green, who played center
field and third base, respec-
tively, for the Manatees last
year, did play in the All-Star
game. But Mr. Ford has
since been traded to the
San Francisco Giants MLB
organization, and Mr.
Smith is not sure that Mr.
Green, who was injured
while playing in the fall
league, will be with the
Manatees this season.
One thing that hasn't
changed since last year is
the $7 general admission
ticket price for each Mana-
tee home game. The organi-
zation strives to make the
games affordable for fami-
lies and has many promo-
tional events lined up for
this season, Mr. Smith said.
For example, the Mana-

Firms partner with new elephant center


By Tony Judnich

Brevard County businesses

future National Elephant
Center in south Florida.
The nonprofit center envi-

leader in elephant popula-

and in the wild. It will be built
on a 300-acre property that
stands in Okeechobee and St.
Lucie counties and is owned
by Waste Management.
Waste Management is leas-
ing the property to the center
for $1 a year, said Jill Allread,
spokeswoman for the
National Elephant Center.
"We hope to break ground
by the end of the year" and
the center could open in
early 2010, Ms. Allread said.
"Even though elephants

From page Al
of local nonprofit organiza-
tions, which are often put
on the back burner in order
to focus on the goal of the
organization, Ms. Wiggins
said.
Each team will be paired
with a different work
request based on the spe-
cific talents of its group,
whether it's in construc-
tion, contracting, land-
scaping, roofing or other
areas.
While there are currently
about 350 volunteers who
signed on-board with the
project, the coalition has
only received about 60
work requests, as of press
time.
"I'm hoping we have a
good match on the day of,"
said Tony Rivoli. "We're
encouraging residents
whose homes are in need
of any type of renovation
to send in a work order as
soon as possible. We're
here to help."
As a member of the high


council of the Cocoa
branch, or "stake," Mr. Riv-
oli is acting as the project
coordinator of the Church
of Jesus Christ of Latter-
Day Saints.
Throughout the church's
eight wards in Brevard
County, Mr. Rivoli has
already enlisted more than
300 volunteers for the Day
of Service.
Through his church, Mr.
Rivoli has participated in
dozens of disaster relief
projects throughout the
nation, dating as far back
as 1989 when Hurricane
Hugo swept through four
Caribbean islands, as well
as the Carolinas.
"At this point, it's
unknown whether this will
remain a local event or
become an annual event
for the southeast of Flori-
da. But we're looking for-
ward to building some
relationships and hopeful-
ly, carrying this on into the
future."
As a way to celebrate the
Day of Service, Brevard
Interfaith Coalition will
host a FestivALL of Faiths


April 26 at the Melbourne
Auditorium as a way to
connect residents with the
many resources the com-
munity offers, from sup-
port groups and rental
assistance to food pantries
and emergency assistance.
The event will feature
family-friendly entertain-
ment, food, music, dance
and informational booths
from at least 50 faith-
based, nonprofit and gov-
ernment agencies.
As a way to reach non-
profit organizations
throughout the county, the
coalition teamed up with
United Way of Brevard, an
organization designed to
mobilize the caring power
of the community.
"United Way has a long
history of reaching across
faith lines to reach a com-
mon goal," said Frank
Barger, director of com-
munity impact for United
Way of Brevard. "This is
just another way for us to
assist and work collabora-
tively with other organiza-
tions to make an impact
on our community."


The coalition also part-
nered with the Brevard
County Department of
Housing and Human Ser-
vices as a way to combine
resources from various
government agencies and
departments.
"In this tough economic
time, its important that
faith organizations, as well
as nonprofit and govern-
ment agencies, are all on
the same side," said Paula
David, Brevard County
human services planner II.
"If not, residents will not
be able to receive the full
scope of services available
to them."
While the Day of Service
was only designed to be a
one-day event, Chip Spear,
an independent contractor
hired by the coalition, said
services would continue
for as long as necessary.
"This doesn't end on the
25th," Mr. Spear said.
"We'll most likely get addi-
tional work orders follow-
ing the FestivALL, so we
will work to complete the
projects thereafter."
While many faith-based


organizations will be pres-
ent at the event, Ms. Wig-
gins said the largest faith
group in the area is those
who have faith and beliefs,
but who do not congregate
at any specific union.
The hope is that when
residents come in to
obtain community
resources, they can also
shop for a faith venture,
Ms. Wiggins said.
"The Brevard Interfaith
Coalition is the perfect
partnership of church and
state and is constrained
by neither," Ms. Wiggins
said. "We have no politics,
no squabbles about reli-
gion; we only focus on the
ways we are alike all of
us driven to help those
less fortunate."

Take care of yards

When I take my dog for a walk around the neighborhood
in Satellite Beach, I (notice) how run-down the yards are
becoming. Most rentals look like dumps. We work hard
keeping up our property and it would be nice if everyone
tried to do the same.
For the people who do not live here but choose to rent out
their houses: how about adding in lawn service with the
rent, because I am sure you would not like to live next door
to a slum.
Please think about what you plant against your neighbor's
backyard fence, or least keep it trimmed. The plants against
my fence are taller than the overhead wiring, blocking out
the sun and killing my grass. Try to be considerate to your
neighbors.

Is this normal?

When did it become the norm to accept multiple offers on
houses for sale and then request "best and final" from all the
offerers? Seems to me this should be advertised as a home
auction. And then cash: the earnest money check from the
first offerer prior to accepting that offer which they didn't
accept. And then refuse to return that check, or issue anoth-
er one, even after the check had cleared the offerer's bank!
Finally, after the bank offered proof of clearance to the Real-
tor, the only two people able to sign the check were out of
the office for the balance of the day. But they would be in the
following day at 9 a.m. or 10 a.m. Yeah, right. Try 12:30 p.m.
and after.
This realty company knows who they are and should be
thoroughly ashamed. I'm telling everyone I know who they
are.

Choose your neighbors, not your home

We were in the market for a home of our own. The Realtor
called and said it was in our price range. We went to see it a
beautiful three-bedroom, two-bath home. We expected
much less for die asking price. (It was) immaculate all
around, our first dream home. :
Six months later, w\e were filing injunctions against our
neighbor, (following) the firm suggestion of law enforcement
on Merritt Island. The other neighbors, it seems, are afraid of
him and they all say he is crazy. "Be careful," they said.
His landlord says he cannot do anything as long as he pays
his rent. The prosecutor says he has done all he can because
there is no law against being crazy. The law enforcement offi-
cer says (the crazy neighbor) can threaten anything he wants
as long as he does not have the means to follow through with
the threat when they get there. (The crazy man's) arrest
record of offenses resembles that of a telephone book.
Do you think an injunction forces the offender to move?
Think again. The law allows them reasonable access to their
home. Now we know why the home was so cheap.
The previous owners had two very large dogs. We found
remnants of surveillance equipment in the attic and some
lower windows were screwed shut, not to mention the previ-
ous owners had injunctions against this same neighbor.
Aware of the troublesome neighbor from years past, (local)
law enforcement (officials) are very sympathetic to our beg-
ging and pleading for help and mercy, but they do not have
the funds, ability, education or laws to back them up.
'So, where does that leave the average working, taxpaying,
everyday citizen who is up against (an unemployed) mental-
ly unstable, drug-abusing, non-taxpaying individual? Let me'
tell you where it has left me: .
with an injunction that is not worth the paper it is typed
upon
with a psychopathic, drug-dealing, convicted felon of a
neighbor who is rarely punished for his sins upon the com-
munity
with a large investment into my own surveillance equip-
ment
with loads of wasted money, time, energy, frustration and
(lack of) sleep
going back and forth to -the courthouse, to no avail,
adding to the ongoing stress
Now tell me who is being punished?
It has been suggested that I move. Why should I move? I'm.
not the problem. I am a prisoner in my own home.
My suggestion to anyone: before you sign (the papers for
home ownership), (do) a background check on your immedi-
ate neighbors. Then ask yourself, can you live with them or
can you do without them?

Compassion

The word is "compassion" and it's been missing so long that
it's now threatening the future.
The mighty dollar and the lack of compassion has, pretty
much, ruined Florida's future. When Florida needed its people
to fight for the land, the beaches and the endangered animals,
only a few showed up to fight for the things without a voice
and, even then, they didn't win against the mighty dollar.
Now the Floridians, who already have been struggling to
make ends meet, are losing their houses, their businesses their
livelihoods and, now, (their) schools? Correct me if I'm wrong,
but aren't the children the future?Why is it that all the priceless
things in life that can't speak are losing?
We now have tons of beautiful not empty concrete con-
dos on the beaches, that were so needing to be built and the
land filled with endangered plants and animals, gone for more
houses to be built, only to be left standing empty and people
homeless due to overpriced taxing and insurance rates. ,
Now the schools and teachers (who) teach the future genera-
tions are being threatened. Being threatened with budget cuts,
closings, losing good teachers, sports, band, etc ... when is the
word "compassion" going to come back? It's long overdue.
The children are our future. The land, air, animals and
beaches are being destroyed and the "people, our govern-
ment," who are supposed to know what they are doing, which
-is fighting for the peoples' rights, well, where are they and why
did they let this happen?
The bottom line is if people want things to change the way
things are going, they have to get involved, let their voices be
heard and fight for what is right.
It's way past time for the people of Florida to stand up for
their rights. The future is looking dreary: empty houses, empty
condos, empty stores, empty schools, empty hearts and souls
and that's the kind of future we want to leave our children?
We the people. Well?

Don't resist arrest

Common sense and justification pity the plight of the
everyday police officer. He risks his life and not only is he
insufficiently rewarded, he must be very careful in arresting a
potential criminal so as not to offend society.
'An excellent case in question:
Several years ago in San Francisco, an individual who was
drunk, under the influence of drugs and weighing about 220
lbs..was sought to be arrested by the police, Had he not resis-
ted arrest, there would have been no cause for the police to
use force and there would not have been any possibility for
the police to have been charged with police brutality. The
beauty of this situation is that, some time later, this same
individual was arrested under similar circumstances and
sentenced to three years in jail. Evidently, this time he did not
resist arrest.
Policemen risk their lives everyday. Simply because some
individual resists arrest, they then become subject to charges
of police brutality. What a travesty.
Wake up society and bleeding hearts. No resist (equals) no
force and no possibility of brutality. Stop feeling sorry for the
individual who resists arrest. He is wrong. He can later sue, if
he cares to, for being wrongfully arrested. Who but the police
in action are fit to judge how much force is needed to arrest a
resisting individual?

Fragile property values plummet

Security for our homes is compromised as there is no
longer a barrier to the street. Safety has been seriously disre-
garded. Privacy (has been) destroyed.
There was a major miscommunication on the ongoing
State Road 513 construction project today. The homeowners
in the Moorings and the South Patrick Residents Association,
representing (more than) 3,000 residents, are shocked and
angry over the "blatant" disregard for the approved plans for
the 50-year-old bottlebrush trees along South Patrick Drive in
Satellite Beach.
Without any notice, the construction crew ripped out all of
the beautiful trees that were the only thing standing between
the residences and the massive traffic on South Patrick Drive
approaching the main entrance to Patrick Air force Base. The
workers destroyed the trees quickly and while the homeown-
ers were at work to avoid any demonstrations or protests and,
as far as we know, they did not complete any environmental
evaluations concerning the trees or any protected birds living
in them.
If this is an example of the manner in which the state and
the county communicate with the residents in our coinmuni-
ty, it is shocking and an unforgivable disregard for ourrights
as homeowners.

Look into the future, Brevard

We all know this state, as well as the rest of the nation, has
had the housing explosion. There now will be a need for
water like everything else. Brevard County is perfect for sever-
al (desalinization) water purification facilities on the Cape.


Our neighbors are looking for new sources due to the fact
they realized there would be a drastic need for new sources
soon. This is an all-win project that can benefit both this
county and this state. An example of looking into the future
was the using of the reclaiming water system.
This county, as well as this state, has failed in the past to
establish a rail system between Orlando and the Cape down
the Beach Line. Let us not fail again and not get a jump on
things to come. That rail system would have saved money in
transportation because of the high price of gas for all of us.

Police the traffic

I moved back to this area three years ago. I live in the south
end of Brevard County. Since my return, I notice that there is
no law enforcement in this part of the county. I tried to con-
tact the sheriff about this but his "people" won't forward my
requests to speak to him, or they screen, or whatever. How
does one get hold of this person (with) no e-mail, direct
phone, etc.? I guess he doesn't need us now that the votes are.
in. His opponent said that would happen.
The speeding in small neighborhoods in. this part of the
county is rampant and yet I have not seen even one person
pulled over in any of these places Barefoot Bay, Micco, Peli-
can Bay, Little Hollywood and U.S. 1. Especially the Central
Boulevard area, where the speed limit is 25 mph. :
In fact, I have never seen anyone go 25 in this area, includ-
ing county work vehicles and those constructing the new
bridge. I have seen the police there, maybe three times in
three years, and theywere speeding, too.
I'm in this area most days, off and on, all day long. I'm not
including, of course, the police who just sit, parked by the
bridge at U.S. 1, during the off-loading of pilings. I do see
them. That's how I know they do exist.
The tickets that could be written in this area could virtually
finance the county if someone would just "do it."
Much of this traffic is "beer runs" to and from the conven-
ience store and could include DUI fines as well, not to men-
tion getting a few more drunken idiots off the road as well.
Drunks are all over this area, between (a local establishment)
and the convenience store a mile to the south. I routinely have
close calls, every day, with these morons. It's a law enforce-
ment gold mine along there and no one seems to know it.
Editor's note: Commander Stephen W. Salvo of the Brevard
County Sheriff's Office responded to this rant as follows:
In response to your recent e-mail concerning the anonymous
submission "Police the Traffic" to your Rants and Raves col-
umn: concerning "rampant speeding" in the neighborhood
areas of Barefoot Bay, Little Hollywood, Pelican Bay and US-1:
We at the Sheriff's Office offer the following information and
suggestions.
At your Brevard County Sheriff's Office, we are sincerely con-
cerned and dedicated to providing professional law enforce-
ment services to all citizens, including those that travel through
our county. The Sheriff's Office makes every effort to effectively
address traffic issues with the best application of our resources.
During the past 12 months, the statistics for just the Micco,
Barefoot Bay and Little Hollywood communities provided the
following information related to traffic enforcement:
Sheriff's Deputies have handled (more than) 10;000 calls for
service in the Micco, Barefoot Bay and Little Hollywood com-
munities. Of the calls for service total, 1,044 were traffic stops.
As a result of those traffic stops, deputies collectively issued
1,026 citations or warnings to those traffic violators. To further
the traffic enforcement effort, 86 special traffic enforcement
details were initiated and utilized based on traffic-related com-
plaints from the public or the analysis of traffic crash data.
The Sheriff's Office traffic enforcement effort is primarily a
two-prong effort. The Special Operations Division, which is a
countywide division, utilizes specific traffic enforcement units
such as the aggressive driving, DUI and motorcycle units to
address and target specific traffic-related complaints. In addi-
tion, precinct patrol deputies will take traffic enforcement
actions while on patrol and not involved with their primary
calls for service.
Solving traffic complaints is a community effort. We at the
Sheriff's Office need the community's help. All reported infor-
mation is appreciated and we try to respond accordingly. How-
ever, it is most helpful when we are provided as much detail as
possible. General complaints like "speeding occurs all the time"
provide some information, but an example of more valuable
information would be "a blue Mustang speeds down the road
every day after school between 3 and 4 p.m.; or, speeding has
been rampant along U.S. 1 between 7 and 8:30 a.m."Receiving
specific information allows supervisors to evaluate and address
traffic complaints in an appropriate manner
It is important to note that the primary purpose of traffic
citations is not to generate revenue to pay operating expenses of
government, but to enforce the traffic laws. Traffic enforcement
helps correct poor driving behavior, which will improve the
overall safety of the public and help to save lives. Sheriff's
deputies do not have quotas for traffic citations and we fully
support our deputies' decisions to give traffic warnings in lieu
of citations at their discretion, depending on the circum-
stances. It is also a common misconception that the Sheriff's
Office receives all of the money from traffic fines. Revenue

St Joseph Crafts Store inventory is heavenly


By Laurie Duane
Brevnews@hometownnewsol.com
Christians entering St.
Joseph Crafts store, 422 S.
Babcock St., Melbourne, will
think they've died and gone
to heaven. Statues in the
storefront windows gaze out
at passersby in peaceful
stares that seem to say
"Bless you, my child."
Walking into the store,
you are first greeted by a
variety of Bibles in every size
and color with a number
of Catholic variations, of
course.
"We recently celebrated.
our 25th anniversary,"
announced Bernard Loftus,
who prefers to be called
"Bernie."
Mr. Loftus has owned the
store with his wife, Barbara,
since Dec. 1, 1983.
The silver anniversary of
the store matches the beau-
tiful hair of each half of the
Loftus couple, but with
those silver manes come
shining spirits that are
apparent not only in their
soft-spoken manners but in
their smiles and gentle-
faces, all of which make it
obvious why the store has
increased in size over the
years. Beside having a wide
selection of religious arti-
cles, the Loftus family are
friendly, helpful and knowl-
edgeable about items neces-
sary for each significant reli-
gious event.
"Our selection of items is
the best you'll ever see," Mr.
Loftus said of the store's
inventory.
How did Mr. and Mrs. Lof-
tus get into the business of
selling religious items? That
is a story in itself.
After a little coaxing; Mr.
Loftus shared the tale. He
started, out selling religious
articles to Catholic churches
and schools. While .many
adults share tales of nuns
knuckle-rapping, Mr. Loftus
has a kinder narrative to tell.
While traveling across the
midwest United States ped-
dling his wares, Mr. Loftus


came in contact with many
nuns who would inspect his
samples, for their own use
and that of their students.
One time, after spreading
his considerable selection
along a banquet-length
table, he bent down to his
sample-case for more items.
When he stood up, all the
samples were missing.
"All right, sisters," warned
Mr. Loftus, "Put them all
back on the table."
The nuns piously bowed
there heads and folded their
hands in prayer. But they
didn't fool Bernie.
"I mean it," Bernie contin-,
ued. "Those samples better
be on the table before I
leave."
They were.
Bernie says his dealings
with nuns across the coun-
try proved fun, humorous
and friendly. In fact, his old-
est daughter, Mary Joleen, is
named after his favorite cus-
tomer, Sister Mary Joleen.
While catering primarily
to Catholics, high Episco-
palians and Greek Orthodox
church-goers, St. Joseph
Crafts is also frequented. by
members of other religious
denominations.
Rosary beads, prayer
books and prayer cards are
primary prayer aids that
come in a variety of styles.
Finger rosaries, which can
be carried in a pocket, are
popular items to send in a
card or letter to loved ones
serving in the military, espe-
cially overseas or in Iraq.
Medals of' patron saints
are available on neck chains
or key chains, as well as car
visor clips.
Religious tokens include
"angel on the shoulder"
pins, which render another
tale from Mr. Loftus.
He was visited several
years ago by a distributor
promoting tiny gold angel
pins.
"No, that's too cutesy-pie,"
he told the distributor, "I
don't want them."
But the distributor con-
,tinued cajoling Mr. Loftus


Bernard Loftus stands among
able at St. Joseph Crafts.
until he finally relented,
with the agreement that if
he accepted the three-dozen
pins and failed to sell them
within a month, the sales-
man would treat Mr. and
Mrs. Loftus to dinner at a
first-rate restaurant. As the
end of the month drew clos-
er, Mr. Loftus made a half-
hearted attempt to sell the
pins to a nun at athurch in
Lake Okeechobee. He suc--
ceeded and lost the wager.
Since then, the pins have
been a top seller.
If you are looking for a
picture or rendering of The
Last Supper with which to
gift someone for Easter, St.
Joseph Crafts is the place to
find it.
. Other icons of religious
figures, either in wall hang-
ings, picture frames or in
statue f6rin, are sprinkled
throughout the store. One of
the most popular items is
the St. Joseph statue, known
by Realtors and homeown-
ers alike as a tool for selling
a home. Despite the com-
mon notion that the statue
must be buried upside-
down in a specific area of
the back yard, Mr., Loftus
does not believe that is nec'
essarily true.

g some of the statuary avail-

"It comes with instruc-
tions." said Mr. Loftus of the
St. Joseph statue. "It's a nine-
day novena petition and a
nine-day thanksgiving."
Mrs. Loftus admitted that
"When we opened, I never
thought we would sell as
many books as we do.
Catholics are readers."
And readers start young.
Many children's books line,
the shelves at St. Joseph
Crafts. An excellent selec-
tion for families who have
lost a baby is a children's
book titled "We were gonna
have a baby, but we had an
angel instead" by Pat
Schwiebert.
Recommended for ages 2
and older, the soft-cover is
easily read, with colorful
pictures by illustrator Taylor
Bills, and recounts the story
of a family who loses an
infant. Though heart-touch-
ing, the story is not morbid
and keeps the tale simple, as
seen through the eyes of a
child.

TEENS' LATER START IS SAFER


Recent research reveals that, when
teens sleep a bit longer and start
their school days is little later,
they are safer drivers. Researchers
noted,a 16.5% decrease in the rate
of automobile accidents among
teen drivers when local high
schools delayed the start of the
school day from 7:30 a.m. to 8:30
a.m. The reason for a safer driving
record probably stems from the
fact that, after puberty,
adolescents arc biologically
programmed to stay up about an
hour later at night. This shift in
teens' biological clocks conflicts
with their need to get up earlier
to go to high school' than they did
to go to middle school. An
awareness of this causal effect
should at least .raise safety
awareness.
,, The. Insurance Center
1C F I ofCentral FKvrida,!nc.


As soon as your teenager begins
to drive, notify us that there will
be an additional driver in the
house. Since teenagers are
inexperienced drivers, ,they tend
to get into a lot of accidents.This
can sometimes be reflected in
higher insurance rates. We
recommend you call us with all of
your insurance questions. You can
rely on our experience and
knowledge to provide you with a
clean arid precise insurance
assessment and we will make the
right recommendations suited
just for you. Call us at

and Five Guys Burgers and
Fries.
The shopping center is a
joint business venture of

projected to increase to
225,000 by 2011.

Rare religious event to coincide with the eve of Passover


By Sarah Stover Jacobs
For Hometown News
When the sun rises on
April 8, it will not only mean
the start of the eve of
Passover, but will also coin-
cide with an event that only
happens every 28 years.
The Blessing of the Sun,
which celebrates the return
of the sun to the same posi-
tion as during the time of its
creation, which was at the
beginning of the fourth day
of creation outlined in the
Jewish faith, will occur on
April 8 at 7:05 a.m., accord-
ing to a press release from
Chabad of the Space & Trea-
sure Coasts.
The community center,
open to Jews of all ages and
levels of Judaism, invites
area residents to attend a
ceremony where Birkat.
Hachamah, "the Blessing on
the Sun," will be recited
along with other prayers
and psalms to mark the
event at Pelican Park in
Satellite Beach. If people
cannot attend, they can say
the blessing anywhere the
sun is visible until midday,
according to information on
the Chabad's Web site,
www.jewishbrevard.com.
Jewish communities
around the world believe
that the third-century sage,
Shmuel, accounted for the
exact position of the sun at
the time of creation based
on astronomical calcula-
tions. By his figures, a solar
year is 365.25 days, or 52
weeks plus 1 and a quarter
days; so, a year after cre-
ation, when the sun
returned to its original posi-
tion, it would do so a day
and a quarter later than the
previous year, according to a


Wickham Place opens
C SH6omimunities recently
opened its new community
of Wickham Place in Mel-
bourne.
Located adjacent to Mel-
bourne's 390-acre Wickham
Park, minutes from the
Intracoastal Waterway and
Atlantic Ocean, the commu-
nity offers one- and two-
story homes priced from the
$170s to $270s. A selection
of three-, four- or five- bed-
room homes are available.
For information, visit
www.shcommunities.com
or call toll-free to (888) 899-
7535.

TRDA elects board
The board of commis-
sioners for the Technologi-
cal Research and Develop-
ment Authority recently
announced that three mem-
bers have been elected to
officer positions. They are:
James T. Brown, chair-
man of the board
Lawrence Devine, vice
chairman
Jack Rood, secretary
Each officer will serve a


press release from Chabad.
"Everything we know is
from the Torah (i.e. the writ-
ten Torah and the oral Torah
(laws transmitted by Moses
to the Jewish people orally)
recorded in the books of the
Talmud and Kabbalah),"
said Rabbi Zvi Konikov.
When the sun reaches this
point every 28 years, it will
be around the same time as
Passover, but it has only
coincided with the holiday
four times.
"In calendar history -
since Hillel instituted the
system that we use Birkat
Hachamah has. occurred
four times on the eve of
Passover. In 609, 693,
1309 (and) 1925," said Rabbi
Konikov.
The combination of
events will make the time a
little more hectic for Jews, as
it is also the last day they
can rid their houses of
chametz, or leavened foods,
including whiskey and beer,
before the eight days of
Passover begin at sundown
on April 8.
The annual event com-
memorates the time when
Moses, directed by God, led
the Jewish people to free-
dom from Egyptian slavery
3,320 years ago. Since they
had to leave quickly, they
could not wait for their
bread to rise and thus, ate
unleavened bread, or what
is known as "matzah."
Matzah is eaten at "seders,"
or Passover meals, the first
two nights of Passover.
Chabad will host commu-
nal seders the evenings of
April 8 and 9. The meals,
usually made by Nshei
Chabad, or the women of
Chabad, led by Shulamit
Konikov, have drawn about
50 people each year, said


one-year term.

Hospice volunteers
receive Rainbow
Award
Hospice of St. Francis vol-
unteers Dee and Norm
Edkins were presented with
the Rainbow Award in
recognition for their hard
work and dedication. They
each work as patient and
family care volunteer, pro-
viding companionship to
patients and respite to fami-
ly members. Mr. Edkins also
donates his woodworking
skills to HOSF's child grief


Rabbi Konikov.
Other activities besides
the burning of the chametz
and seders take place during
Passover.
"We have services each
evening and morning as
well as festive meals preced-
ed by a benediction over the
wine. The holiday of
Passover is traditionally
considered especially signif-
icant for family get-togeth-
ers and outings," said Rabbi
Konikov.
While these coming eight
days are a time for celebra-
tion and reflection for Jews
all over the world, Rabbi
Konikov thinks anyone from
any religion can benefit
from this time.
"Though the laws of
Passover were not obligated
upon gentiles, nevertheless,
the metaphysical lessons
apply in many ways.
Passover represents humili-
ty as the dough does not
puff and rise. In order to
make a better world we all
need to get rid of our 'inner
chametz,' which means our
ego and arrogance, and
unite with one another, even
with someone we don't
seem to see eye to eye with.
Humility was the ingredient
needed for the Jewish peo-
ple to become a nation and
has sustained us until today.
As the role to be a light unto
the nations, the message
should not stop there but
(be) passed on to every
nation to become humble in
the eyes of man and God
and do everything possible
to bring unity and light to a
fragmented world by doing
a good deed and random
acts of kindness to one
another. Then, God will
'Passover' all the limitations
that hinder our ability to see


program, North Star, assist-
ing with projects for the
children.
The Rainbow Award is
sponsored by Brevard Asso-
ciation of Human Services
and is awarded to volun-
teers throughout the com-


the light of Redemption and
allow the Messianic Era to
unfold speedily in our days,"
he said.
In addition, the Blessing
of the Sun preceding
Passover this time around
also offers further reflection
for the Jews and possibly
others.
"The blessing of the Sun
reminds (us) of God's inti-
mate relationship with His
creation and His watchful
eye on every detail of what's
going on in His universe.
Imagine, had the sun been
positioned a minute closer
to the earth even by a small
decimal point, the earth
would burn to a crisp. Such
an example, and myriads
more, leads us to realize how
we are all in God's hands,"
said Rabbi Konikov.
The event also should
make the Jewish people
reflect on the fact that their
Creator wants an intimate
relationship with every one
of them, the Rabbi said.
... Countless times, on a
daily basis, we have His
undivided attention. Before
and after we munch on a
snack, after we leave the
restroom, and, of course, in
the three daily prayers, we
have the opportunity to say:
'Blessed are You, Lord our
God, King of the universe
..." Incredibly, however,
human nature is such that
even an experience as
breath-taking as addressing
the Most Ultimate can sadly
be reduced to mere habit.
Well, for those who find it
difficult to get inspired by
daily 'rituals,' here's a once-
in-a-generation event for
(them): On Wednesday,
April 8 we will have the
opportunity to recite a spe-
cial blessing thanking God


munity who provide excep-
tional service.

prices Lon the same items
change so much each
week?
A box of pasta may cost
79 cents one week and
$2.39 the next. A bottle of
juice that costs $2 today
may cost $4.29 just a few
days from now.
Most people accept these
price fluctuations as
normal. Many don't even
notice them at all.
Why do prices at the
grocery store change so
much in a short period of
time?
Grocery stores sales run
in 12-week cycles. Most
everything in the store is at
its lowest price point just
once every 12 weeks.


again until the 12-week
cycle is complete.
You might be thinking
what I thought when I
initially learned this
valuable piece of informa-
tion: what if I had just
bought more pasta last
week when it was 79 cents?
Better yet: what would
have happened if I bought
enough boxes of pasta to
last my household 12
weeks? I'd save $1.60 on
each box. If we ate pasta
once a week for the next 12
weeks, I would save $19.20
by buying all 12 boxes in
one trip when the price was
low.
Granted, this approach
goes against everything we


typically do as shoppers.
When it's time to go to
the store, most of us look
around the house, see what
we're out of and then go to
the store to buy it. But the
problem with this is that it's
impossible for every item
on our list to be at its lowest
price point, since different
categories of grocery items
operate on different pricing
cycles.
That's part of the grocery
store's marketing plan.
Stores know that if shop-
pers come in for a sale
item, it's likely they will buy


to saving money.
Obviously, it's not easy to
stock up on perishable
produce and dairy items.
But many other products
are easy to store for long
periods. If you start saving
money on slow-to-outdate
items, cereal, canned and
frozen foods and personal-
care items such as tooth-
paste and shampoo, your
entire grocery bill will start
to come down.
Here's the challenge: We
are just not in the habit of
buying 12 boxes of pasta at
a time. But why not? Pasta
has a long shelf life. It
doesn't spoil. It's easy to
store. Yet, when we see it on
sale, we usually don't think,


shopping in a new light. I
started buying larger
quantities of my household
staples when they were at
their lowest prices.
Die-hard couponers refer
to buying in quantity as
"stockpiling."
When you buy more than
you need because the price
is low, you can "shop from
'home" the next time you
need that item, because
you have stockpiled it in
your kitchen cupboard.
And you've avoided
paying the higher price
for the identical item in
the grocery store this
week, because you pur-
chased enough to last


coupons yet!
Imagine that during the
pasta sale, I had coupons
for 75 cents off each box
of pasta. I would now be
buying my pasta for just 4
cents a box. We'll discuss
how to use coupons in
conjunction with the 12-
week sales cycle next
week.

The importance of buying travEL


The importance of buyng travel insurance for your trip


Do you need travel
insurance? In a
word, yes.
Purchase travel insur-
ance and if nothing
happens where you
needed to use it, then you
lost money. So kick
yourself, but be grateful
you did not need it.
However, if you needed
it and did not have it, the
initial cost could really
have been the lesser of all
evils, depending on what
you needed it for.
Getting sick or injured
out of the country can not
only be a bummer, but it
can be very expensive.
Now you can really kick
yourself.
Don't think for one
minute that the health
insurance policy you pay
big money to have here in
the states is going to cover
all of your costs when you
are out of the country.
Quite the opposite. They
may cover some your
basics, but not without
plenty of leg work on your


part for reimbursement.
A trip to a local hospital
on a remote island can be
very costly. Then, you still
have to get home if the
ship left without you.
So many times we see or
hear of someone getting
airlifted off of a cruise ship
because of a fall or sick-
ness. You start to think to
yourself, "I hope they have
insurance."
What does travel insur-
ance cost? What does it
cover? Which policy would-
be best for me?
These are all questions
you need to ask yourself or
your travel consultant.
What is important is that
you have coverage in the;
first place.
Most travel insurance
companies offer a variety
of options for you to
choose from. Policies in
general cover trip cancel-
lation, interruption, death
in the family, medical
issues, sickness and
natural disasters, in
addition to lost or stolen:


baggage issues, on-board
medical bills and trans-
portation home, if neces-
sary, for you and your
travel partner.
Do you need it? Consid-
er these circumstances:
You are looking forward
to your long-awaited
cruise vacation, but the
day before you are to fly
out to meet your ship, you
become ill and need to
cancel.
What to do? You contact
either your travel consult-
ant or the cruise line
directly and cancel your
cruise and the airline to
cancel your flight.
Had you purchased
travel insurance, you will
be reimbursed the entire
amount you are out,
minus the cost of the


policy of course.
Now, had you not had
insurance, you would lose
it all. Not only your own
monies, but the person
you are to travel with will
lose his, as well, if he
chooses not to go without
you.
Your child gets hurt a
couple of days prior to
your trip and you cannot
possibly go. You are
covered, with most insur-
ance policies, for this, as
well. You have an unex-
pected death in the family:
covered. You broke your


leg: covered. Your house
had a fire: covered. A
natural disaster occurred
and you could not leave:
covered. Many scenarios
are covered with most
travel insurance policies.
If you are cruising, you
can purchase travel
insurance through the
cruise line that will cover
cancellations, baggage
issues, on-board sickness-
es, death in the family, etc.
Some cruise lines
policies have a coverage
that you can choose not to
cruise, but you will only


receive cruise credit
toward a future cruise with
the same line.
Hey, it is better than
nothing if you had to
cancel for a reason not
covered by the policy.
Cruise lines insurance
vs. third-party insurance:
The differences can vary,
but basically, the cruise
lines' insurance is general-
ly more economical and
will cover cancellation or
interruption, medical,
death, baggage, etc. What

folk were in Washington,


Travel
From page Al 11
it does not cover is airfare
not purchased through the
cruise line and default if
the cruise line goes
bankrupt.
A few years ago, my
clients decided to sail on
a Canada and New
England cruise in a luxury
suite for an important
anniversary. The total'fare
was more than $10,000 for
both of them. Now, they
had never purchased
insurance prior to this
and felt they did not need
it.
I convinced them that
they should have travel
insurance for this cruise.
Two weeks prior to their
travel, the gentleman got
sick and they had to


cancel. They were so
happy that I insisted they
get the insurance. Since
then, they always buy
travel insurance and have
since had to use it for lost
baggage, trip delay
because of flights and on-
board medical issues on
various cruises. Go figure!
They won't travel without
it any longer.
If you are planning to
travel, make travel
insurance part of the
entire package.
What did a great fare do
for you when you had to
cancel and got nothing
back? Do it. At some
point, you won't be sorry.

Rants
From page A6
received from traffic fines is
distributed to a wide variety
of government agencies and
entities and as specified by
Florida statutes. The great
majority of the money col-
lected goes directly to the
state of Florida. Only a small
portion, about $4 per cita-
tion, is returned to the county
and those funds can be used
only for the training of law
enforcement personnel.
It is important to call us.
Together we can work
toward a safer community.
To contact the Brevard
County Sheriff's Office, call 911
in an emergency If not an
emergency, call (321) 952-6372
or the south precinct number,
(321) 253-6658. Or you may
visit the Internet Web site,
www.Brevardsheriff.com.


Two proposed
solutions

Let's improve our unem-
ployment problem. First,
stop outsourcing jobs and
giving businesses tax
advantages to outsource.
Second, start building
more nuclear power plants.
In fact, let's make all elec-
tric power plants nuclear.
Look at the employment
opportunity that will pres-
ent. It will bring in thou-
sands of jobs and free us
from using oil and coal.

Makes no sense

I'm a very proud Ameri-
can, just not proud of how
some things are working in
America. If you take out a
mortgage and you have
new cars and boats and are


living beyond your means,
why does someone who
does not have those things
have to pay for your mort-
gage three or four years
later? It doesn't make any
sense.
. Another thing that does
not make sense is the crim-
inal justice system (with
;regard to) child sex crimes.
Child sex crimes are not
tolerated, except in Ameri-
ca. Thousands of victims a
year are subject to sex traf-
ficking. We need tougher
sentencing and stricter
judges. And not just for sex
crimes, for all crimes.
Another thing that does
Snot make sense is the
amount of money we are
pumping out of our coun-
try (when we need it here)
for housing, food and safe
health care.
Maybe if some common


folk were in Washington,
D.C., things would change.

Road resurfacing is
poorly done

I'm calling to complain
about the (resurfacing) of
Malabar Road (in Palm
Bay). They have done a
really bad job of it. It
seems like you are driving
on a railroad track instead
of a smooth road, like it
should be. We were better
off with the old road.
Editor's note: The city of
Palm Bay has issued to
Hometown News the fol-
lowing statement:
"It is not our practice to
respond to rants from
anonymous persons. The
city will respond to citi-
zens with legitimate con-
cerns who properly identi-
fy themselves."
Yvonne Martinez, public
information coordinator,
city of Palm Bay, may be
reached at (321) 952-3456,
Ext. 4678.

A note about
constructive
eviction

This is about informa-
tion that is out there.
A landlord in (Brevard
County) got rid of her ten-
ants, one of whom is 70-
years-old, by means of
constructive eviction,
which carries a two-year
prison term plus a fine.
(Constructive eviction
occurs by) removing light
bulbs, changing locks,
removing the furniture,
shutting off the heat and
cutting the power by cut-
ting the power cords. If
anyone out there is suffer-
ing the same situation,
they need to contact the
clerk of courts or (seek)
legal counsel, (through a
lawyer or Legal Aid).
This woman is now on
the roads in a van with
her pets. This type of evic-
tion is illegal.

/o/ to town, so do the
Washington
Nationals. The professional
baseball team does its spring
training at Space Coast
Stadium inViera, a ball fan's
dream, with easy parking,
modem restrooms, clean
stadium seating and plenty
of wide open space.
I was fortunate to be able to
attend two games, taking
with me a friend who had
never attended a live game.
But that is not to say she was
not familiar with the game.
The games I attended were
on two consecutiveWednes-
day nights, March 18 and 25.
The first week, we left
around 5 p.m., had dinner
and arrived at our seats just
after the first inning started.
It had been a while since I
had attended a live game,
but the strings of my heart
quivered as I looked down at
the diamond, with players
on the bases crouched
forward, waiting to catch the
ball to make an out, the
pitcher and catcher signaling
to each other about what
kind of ball to throw and the
player at bat practicing his
swing.
Baseball is as American as I
am. The first game I watched,
when I was 6-years old, was
between the Baltimore
Orioles and NewYork
Yankees on the Yankees'
home turf. Excitement in the
air was infectious, so much
so that, to this day, I still feel
it when I watch a game, even
when it is between two farm
teams.
It was Ladies' Night on
. larch 18 and the Nationals
played the Florida Marlins.
The Marlins were, literally, on
the ball, but the Nationals
were a little slow. I left at the
bottom of the eighth inning
with the score in favor of the
Marlins 7-1. The Nationals
picked up four runs in the
ninth inning, but I refused to
consider that I was a bad-
luck charm.

and I left 15 minutes earlier

French films broaden area's culture


By Sarah Stover Jacobs
For Hometown News
Those seeking some-
thing different, or who
want to take a getaway but
cannot afford it; can
quench their desires at the
Fourth Annual Tournees
French Film Festival.
The festival, hosted by
The Florida Institute of
Technology's Departm ient
of Humanities and
Communication and
College of Psychology and
Liberal Arts, will treat
audiences to five films
shown between April 10
and 26. The films will be
followed by discussions
led by the college's faculty.
"It is a fun event. All the
films will be in the original

director of Fine Arts

She helped get the event
started four years ago by
applying for a grant from
the French American
Cultural Exchange, a
nonprofit organization
that supports contempo-
rary creative work used for
cultural and educational
exchange between the
French and Americans.
The grant, which shares
the name of the festival,
was set up to encourage
American universities and
colleges to begin their own
sustainable French film
festivals. Florida Tech

90 percent of our students
are foreign," she added.
And the school has
touched on something,
since approximately 250 to
300 people attend opening
night each year and an
average of 150 come to
films shown the rest of the
festival. However, opening
night's attendance may
decrease this year since
the department is not
hosting a reception as they
usually do. The college did
not get enough sponsors
to have a reception, but we
will definitely have
beverages and popcorn for
sale, and maybe some
wine, said Ms. Funk.
Members of the human-
ities department and
input from students
decide which films are
shown each year. They
select the films from a list
referred to as the Tournees
Selection, which is
comprised of the best
films released in France in
the past year, according to
the Cultural Services Web
site,
www.frenchculture.org.
"We try to pick different
genres and films that we
think will appeal to lots of
people," said Ms. Funk.
This year's picks include:
"La Mome (LaVie En
Rose)," a drama that
portrays the life of French
chanteuse Edith Piaf; "Ne
Le Dis A Personne (Tell No
One)," a thriller in which

STAR SCOPES
James Tucker
Week of 4-3-2009


Aries-March 21-April 19
You are well known for dar-
ing to dream big dreams and
then being bold enough to
act on and create them.
Why? Not only is it your time
of the year, but you climb up
the higher slopes of life
because of your lofty think-
ing, strength and courage.
You are able to survey all
things around you and then
pick, and choose the ones
you love the best. This is one
of the main reasons why you
are such a great leader.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
Venus in Taurus gives you an
edge in the heart depart-
ment this week. Your motiva-
tion is fueled by the desires
living in your heart for a bet-
ter life. No one is more hard
working and determined
than Taurus. When you set
your plans into motion you
are, capable of performing
miracles. Why? Because you
never quit or give up until
you victory is assured. You
are an inspiration to others
even if they don't always tell
you.

Gemini-May 21 -June 21
Working the divine plan liv-
ing in your soul continues to
bring you mastery over life.
You know how to communi-
cate and manifest in that
order. The funny thing is that
physical rewards don't bring
you^ as much satisfaction
nowadays as much as the
spiritual. These are respect,
love, honor and human dig-
nity. Living a quality life is
more important to you now
than quantity. You are creat-
ing an awesome life.

Cancer-June 22-July 22
Don't fret over life's recent
struggles. This is just life's
ebb and flow. The secret to
balance is to work harder
when things are flowing and
increasing. Then hold back
when they are ebbing. Being
in the flow of monthly cycles
of energy is just as important
as finding daily balance. Fol-
low your heart, trust your
instincts and use the natural
rhythms of life to enhance
and bring you your well-
earned and deserved good.

Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
Measure the quality of your
life by the joy you feel in your
heart. You were born to rule
by being of service to others.

Scopes
From page B1
You are at your best when
you are able to help some-
one else find the answer to
their life challenge. Everyone
gains strength from your light
and presence. It keeps your
family bonds strong. It gives
you much personal power in
the workplace. You are a
well- loved and trusted
friend. The universe wants to
highly reward you for all this
goodness.

Virgo-Aug. 23-Sept. 22
The moon in Virgo this week
gives you an edge in emotional
power. Keep your heart open
and listen to your inner guid-
ance. The wisdom that comes
up is the greatest truth you can
have on earth. Have faith in it,
learn to trust it, surrender and
wait. Before long, the right
ideas begin to pop into the
mind from this deep well with-
in. When you act on these
divine impulses before the
head gets in the way, you will
see great, unexpected gain
materializing right in front of
your eyes.

Ubra-Sept.23-Oct.22
Find joy and good cheer in the
little things. Laugh a lot Hang
around with positive- minded
people who let you be yourself.
Tell someone a joke and make
her laugh. Poke a little good-
natured fun at yourself. Others
love to laugh at our foibles. It's
a good part of being healthy
and human. It keeps our self-
righteousness and ego in
check when we poke a little
fun at ourselves. Make some-
one else laugh and it cheers
you up. True happiness in life is
just that simple.

Scorpio-Ocd.23-Nov.21
When you arise each day, take
stock of your many blessings
and express gratitude. Then
know that more positive good
is on the way to add to this.
This attitude of positive
expectancy then rubs off on
others and causes them to

share your new blessings. This
is a wonderful way to live and
keeps you on the cutting edge
of many new and wonderful
adventures as you travel the
rivers and roads of life.

Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
You function best when you
feel inspired. Here is one to
affirm every day. "The universe
is my source of life. Each day
begins anew. My job is to share
and honor it to many or to few.
I ask for wisdom, love and
courage with each new pass-
ing day. Let me help someone
with a greater burden some-
where along the way. In the
giving I receive back multiplied.
With this possibility my life is
justified. Mine is a great life and
I am thankful"

Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Ask the universe for new direc-
tion and be open to new ideas
when they come. Feel yourself
in perfect health, surrounded
by happy people, with all your
needs being met right now.
Allow yourself to receive back
for all the good you have given
to others. The safety, peace and
joy of this, fills you with a
youthful inner glow and gives a
sense that all is well. This plan
raises your spirits and keeps
you going no matter what else
is happening in the world.

Aquarius-Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Mars in Aquarius gives you the
courage to stand up for what
you truly believe. Your sense of
justice is legion. No matter
what is going on around you,
you always know how to do
the right thing. Continue to
expect the unexpected. Create
new causes. Push forward. It's
springtime. Plant new seeds
and expect positive results.
Your dynamic leadership con-
tinually goes out to others like
a light, and gives hope to those
in need. Now you are at your
best

Pisces-Feb. 194IMlarch 20
Mighty forces are at work right
now. Mercury in Pisces speeds
up your decision-making pow-
ers and gives clarity to your
thoughts. Uranus in Pisces con-
tinues to hone your spirit and
the visions that flow up from
the soul. Now is the time to
rejuvenate yourself. New ener-
gy, enthusiasm and hope are
abundant Regroup often and
stay focused on the edge of
your own possibilities and pas-
sions. A psyched up and happy
Pisces is a mighty force to be
reckoned with in this old
world.

Traditional Italian


Easter pies satisfy


Hello smart shoppers,
hope you had a good
week.
Please note, some of this
week's recipes contain
Crisco. It has been around
since 1911. Before that
time, lard (pork fat) was
used. Today's Crisco has no
trans-fat, whether you
purchase the blue or green
label.
Easter is coming! Today's
column will give you
recipes for very old, tradi-
tional Italian Easter pies. If
it weren't for the requests I
have received, I would
never have thought to print
them. They're time con-
suming but with some,
tradition is tradition.
Pizza Rustica is a spicy
meat pie. I will give you a
family recipe and another
from a friend.
Ricotta pie is a sweet,
cheesecake-like dessert
that's not too hard to make
with a sweet cookie crust. It
requires the optional
addition of candied diced
orange and citron. I always
thought citron meant all
kids of candied citrus,
didn't you?
I went to my World Book
encyclopedia. The citron
tree, native to Asia, bears a
grapefruit-size lemon-like
fruit with a thick rind. The
fruit is considered inedible,
but the aromatic rind is
candied and used in
baking.
While reading this
information, I remembered
a huge tree my parents had
in Baynton Beach. It was
there when they bought the
house and we could never
understand why anyone
would plant such a strange
tree with inedible fruit.
Noticing the tree, an
Asian family knocked on
mom's door and asked if
they could buy the fruit.
Mom told them to help
themselves, but they
insisted on paying., Twenty-
five cents apiece seemed
fair and they picked several.
A few days later, many
more friends appeared and
as the tree was getting bare,
the price went up to 75
cents each.When I finally
learned what citron was I
put two and two together;
mom and dad had a citron
tree.
See you next week.

Let your children find their own comfort levels at activities


t's too high!" "Come on,
Mark. Let's just do
this," the physical
education teacher at St.
Peter's Prep encouraged.
"You can do it, just believe
in yourself."
"Believing in yourself is
easy when you're standing
on the ground," the third-
grader thought to himself
as he was inching upward
on the wooden pole.
"How much further to
go?" Mark called down to
his teacher.
"You are about half up
the pole; just keep going,"
the teacher replied.
"Come on slowpoke,"
one of the girls challenged.
"Let's get going. I don't
have all day."
Mark was a good student
and, generally, a good
athlete. But there was


something about that
wooden pole that made
him think twice about his
abilities.
"I'm not so sure I can
make this," he called
down.
"Come on Mark, just a
little bit further so you can
ring the bell at the top of
the pole."
"He thinks that I am the
little train that was having
trouble getting up the
hill,". Mark thought to
himself. "This is pretty
hard."
"Mr. Brady," one of the
other third-graders asked
his teacher, "if Mark can't
make it to the top, what's
the big deal?".
The teacher quickly
recollected some of the
things that his physical
education teacher had told


DOING THE 3
RIGHT THING 1 "
DOUGLAS
PARKER


him and his classmates
years earlier Never quit,.
it's do or die. When one
man on the team fails, we
all fail. No pain, no gain -
move it.
Mr. Brady was just about
to open his mouth and
repeat one of the phrases
he had heard years earlier,
when he took another look
at the boy on the pole.
Doing just the right
thing as an adult means
understanding that all
children are different.
Each has special talents,
and each has certain


shortcomings. Not every
boy or girl can excel in
math and not every child
will be a football star.
As a parent or as a
teacher, the emphasis
needs to be on discovering
the talent that each boy
and girl brings into the
, classroom or the home
and then doing everything
possible to celebrate and
support the ability. Some
of these talents may be
tremendous, while others
might be more modest.
And, as is the nature with
most children, their
interest in that skill may
disappear after only a
short period of time. How
many parents have
lamented that their
daughter, who showed
such brilliance in gymnas-
tics, might wake up one


morning and decide that
it's time to try soccer, or
that their son, who has
shown such a flair for the
piano, has taken up tennis
instead?
Children will find their
comfort levels in activities
and pursue those that
interest them the most. As
difficult as it might be for
adults, we need to trust
their instincts.
Mr. Brady pulled his
whistle up to his lips and
made a look like he had
just swallowed a lemon.
The other third-graders
moved a little closer to
each other as they sensed
that their teacher was
about to say something
hurtful to Mark, even
though that was not his
style.
"You know, Mark," he


began, "When one man on
the team..."
Suddenly, Mr. Brady
remembered how he felt
years earlier when his
coach had said that to
him. The children all
held their breaths.
Mr. Brady continued.
"When one man on the
team needs help, we all
support him. Come on
down and we'll all help
you work on those
climbing muscles so next
time you'll ring that old
bell."

GREEN LIVING I9


Couple strives to 'Help Save Earth'


By Tony Judnich
Judnich@hometownnewsol.com
PALM BAY The ques-
tion, "What do you want to
save today?" is posed on
the main page of the Web
s i t e ,
www.helpsaveearth.org.
By clicking on a photo
that shows a polluted sky
and contains the word
"air," you are taken to a
page that discusses carbon
dioxide "one of the top
manmade producing
greenhouse gases in the
United States" as well as
methane and nitrous oxide.
Links then take you to
dozens of suggestions on
how to use less electricitry,
such as by washing your
clothes in cold water and
wrapping your water
heater in an insulating
blanket.
Visitors could spend


hours learning tips and
advice from the Web site,
which was created by Palm
Bay. residents Brion and
Vera Hurley.
Mr. Hurley, who works
for Rockwell Collins in Mel-
bourne, uses his data
analysis skills and his wife's
knowledge about the envi-
ronment to help' visitors on
the site.
"She has educated me on
things, such as if you don't
buy orgariic, fertilizers (for
non-organic food) get into
the (environmental) sys-
tem," Mr. Hurley daid.
He said the Web site's for-
mation sprouted from "a
lot of discussions between
us 'dn environmental
issues. A lot of it is bringing
attention to things on a
day-to-day basis."
For example, the site'
includes a "Random Green'
Action" section, which


gives advice about helping
the environment.
This section includes the
message, "Anytime you pick
, up a free handout, coupon
booklet, flyer, newspaper,
booklet or brochure from
your local restaurant or
store, and don't use it (you
throw it away without really
reading it), you have wasted
the energy needed to pro-
duce it, and have triggered
someone to make more.
Read it or skim through the
document right there, then
put it back in the holder so
someone else can read it."
Overall, the Web site
includes 132 actions that
aim to "help save the earth."
A form is available for visi-
tors to suggest new actions.
On another part of the
site, visitors can enter their
zip code and find business-
es that are concerned about
the environment, places to


recycle and a profile of their
home's energy use.
The site also provides a
free "going green" Microsoft
PowerPoint presentation
that companies and schools
can use to educate employ-
ees and students and save
money.
In addition, the site
includes a "store" where
people can learn about and
buy items ranging from a
$20 solar hybrid flashlight
to a $6,000 wind power sys-
tem.
Mr. Hurley said he has
bought and used some of
the products featured on
the site, such as a solar
charger for cell phones and
a device called the Kill-A-
Watt, which" measures the
number of kilowatts that
appliances use.

NASA develops 'planetary skin' program


By Jenet Krol
Krol@hometownnewsol.com
When thinking of carbon as
a tradable commodity, per-
haps diamonds or coal spring
to mind.
But, with the increase in
greenhouse gases threatening
the environment, it is the abil-
ity to keep carbon out of the
atmosphere that may soon
become just as valuable.
For example, a tropical
rainforest or grassland natu-
rally takes carbon' out of the
atmosphere.
A new monitoring program
launched by the National
Aeronautics and Space
Administration and Cisco


Inc., called "Planetary Skin"
will monitor these areas for
the amount of carbon they
reduce through ground-
based sensors and 21Earth-
monitoring NASA satellites
already inplace.
The amount of carbon that
is reduced or maintained
could be used for carbon-
trading, said Christopher Pot-
ter, a senior research analyst
at the NASA Ames Research
Center in California and the
NASA scientific lead for the
Planetary Skin project.
Carbon offsets, such as a
rainforest, or a storage area for
carbon that is removed from
the atmosphere, like a geolog-
ical formation, could be trad-


ed to companies that produce
the pollutant, said Mr. Potter,
Jennifer Gleeson, senior
public relations manager.for
Cisco, said the project is about
attaching a value to natural
resources.
"In Brazil, a rainforest is
worth more when it is cut
down, even though when it
stays up it provides carbon
(filtering.) This will give devel-
oping nations the ability to
put a value on the carbon
their rainforests reduce and
trade that like they would
wood," she said.
Planetary Skin will capture,
collect, analyze and report
data on environmental condi-
tions around the world.


The pilot program, "Rain-
forest Skin," is currently mon-
itoring conditions in the
Brazilian Amazon.
I -Eventually, the program will
monitor many worldwide
natural resources such as bio-
mass, water and. climate
change, and the related risks
to these areas from global
warming rises in sea levels,
droughts and disease.
"We hope to make a lot of
progress in one year," said Mr.
Potter. "Time is of the
essence. As the atmosphere
heats up, there is no time to
lose."

Planetary Skin, visit

Tips for'going green'


Here are a few sug-
gestions for making
your household more
"green:"
Start-a.little com-
post pile in your
backyard, away from
the dwelling structure.
Toss all your fruit and
vegetable peelings,
crumbled egg shells,
coffee grounds and
tea bags. Old plants,
weeds and fish car-
casses are also good.
Turn this mixture over
at least once a month
and add to gardening
areas to fertilize the
soil.
Re-use glass bot-
l tes. Purchase drinks
in glass bottles. When
empty, wash .and refill
with homemade iced
tea and filtered water.
Buy an acrylic water
'pitcher with a replace-
able filter and use for
water in the recycled
glass jars and bottles.
Buy eggs in card-
board cartons. and use
the cartons for fire-
starters filled with
lint or shredded paper
and wax to start a fire
or for planting seeds.
Mll egg cartons are
good to use for stor-
age of miniature items
like buttons, tacks,
beads and small hard-
ware fasteners -
screws, nuts, bolts,
etc.
Always re-use
plastic containers
with lids. They are
great for leftovers, car-
rying damp items or
shells from the beach,
as portable containers
for pet food and water


when traveling and as
garbage containers for
meat, poultry and fish
cooking waste. When
placed in the freezer,
they keep the garbage
from smelling up the
house.
*- Diminish the
amount of paper you
use at work. Create
several files and docu-
ments to hold your e-
mail in lieu of printing
out the documents.
Simply cut and paste
text from the e-mail
and transfer it to a
desktop file. This will
take a little getting
used to but, bnce mas-
tered, is well worth the
initial organization.
Take a. three-
minute shower unless
you are washing your
hair and, then, keep
the shower to a mini-
mum.
Run a full, load.
Remember the advice
about running the
dishwasher or wash-
ing machine only with
a full load. Spray the
dishes with vinegar
water and let soak
before placing them in
the dishwasher. ,
Recycle the water
from your fishbowl
onto your plants,
which will thrive in the
fertilized water.
Quit using your
automobile as if gas is
plentiful. Decrease
the amount of gaso-
line you use each
month.
Don't waste any-
thing. Use small por-
tions of everything
and refill, if necessary.

something that not only
recognized these women
for their contributions, but
also recognized the com-
munity at large," said San-
dra Urban, human services
planner for Brevard Coun-
ty. "Their work sends the
message that if we don't
take care of our environ-
ment now, it's not going to
be here in the future. We've
commended all of our
nominees for their focus
on what could happen
down the road."
The Commission on the
Status of Women was
established in 1976 and
consists of 15 voting mefn-

Ms. Urban said.

Adobe Reader enables computers to read different file types


T his week I thought I
would touch on an
issue that seems to
have been popping up more
of late.
I keep getting requests for
help from people who either
have a file that was e-mailed
to them that is supposed to
be "universal portable
document format," but they
can't open it, or they click
on a link in a Web site and
then get a message they
need something called
'"Adobe Reader" in order to
read that file. Has this ever
happened to you?
The confusion seems to
come from the idea that
when you get a computer
it's fully loaded and ought to
be able to open anything,
especially so-called "univer-
sal" files such as Adobe files.
To further confuse things,
some computers do come
with Adobe Reader already
installed in its "core build"
(that is, the standard
package of programs
installed for that model) but
many do not.
Since the ability to read
Adobe files is not something
that Windows can do on its
own, you can run into some

confusion the first time you
encounter one of these
Adobe files.
You can recognize an
Adobe file by its extension:
,pdf. The extension (the last
three characters of a file
name after the dot) tells
Windows what kind of file it
is and what program to use
to open it.
In this case ".pdf" stands
for "portable document
format" and it is supposed
to be universal. That is, it's
supposed to look the same
no matter what kind of
computer you try to view it
with.
The problem comes from
the fact that, although this is
a universal format, you
must have a special reader
installed in order to see the
file exactly the way it was
created, hence the need for
the Adobe reader "plug-in"
or "helper app." (a plug-in
or helper app. is a small

when Windows can't do the
job).
I can hear all these
questions going through
your heads and I have an
answer for all of them.
If the icon isn't present in
your programs list, or it is
there but you still have
trouble opening .pdf files,
then you should consider
downloading the latest
copy.
If you don't have it, it's a
sure bet you'll need it,
someday and if you have it,
but it won't open files, then
it may be an older version
trying to open a file that was
created with a newer
version. That can happen
from time to time too.
Do you really need it?
Well, it's good to have on
your machine. Eventually;
you will encounter a .pdf file
and having the latest
version installed will ensure
you are able to open it when
you encounter one.
The reader is available for
free by downloading it from
Adobe's Web site; just visit
www.Adobe.com and click
the "get Adobe Reader"
button.
Follow the directions and,

opening .pdf files with no
problems at all.
As for the spyware
question, the answer is that
there's no spyware. Adobe
Reader is completely safe.
But it is good to be alert
when downloading "free-
bies" from the Internet.
Sometimes free comes with
a cost but in this case, it's
OK. Installing Adobe Reader
won't load your machine
with a bunch of spyware
garbage, and it won't cause
you to get a ton of spam so
you can relax. This is a safe

one.
So, in a nutshell, some-
times Windows needs help
opening even "universal"
files and the way that is
accomplished is by down-
loading and installing the
appropriate "helper app."
When you encounter a
message that Windows can't
open a file, don't panic.
Make a note of the file's
extension to tell you how to
open it. If it's .pdf, then you
know you need to have
Adobe Reader installed.
If it's some other exten-


sion, remember you can
always Google it to find out
what kind of program you to
open it. The nice thing is
that once you download
and install the helper app.,
you never have to do it
again. From that point on,
Windows will know how to
open files with that exten-
sion.
