W est Melbourne police petition to form a unionWEST MELBOURNE Police officers in West Melbourne are forming a union because they are the only nonunionized police department in the county, and because of perceived hostility toward them, their representative said. Tw enty-four officers and four sergeants will vote on whether to unionize, and the process could be completed by January, a union spokesman said. M ike Scudiero, communications director for the Coastal Florida Police B enevolent Association, said officers are seeking to unionize for wage stability and because of recent comments by a city councilman. There has been some rhetoric in the last few months out of City Hall," Mr. Scudiero said. "You can only take so much of that before you have to stand up for yourself. The name calling and the semantics have made for a tough working environment for these officers. So they want to have a voice. They want to know their jobs and their futures are protected," Mr. Scudiero said. Mr. Scudiero was referring to published comments by city councilman M ike Hazlett, who referred via e-mails to a city employee as a "corrupt, union thug." In advocating spending cuts, the councilman also described the police department as "B everly Hills P.D." because of its level of funding. 679690 WIN$100000UP TO WEVE GOT EMƒ COME GET EM!BUMPER STICKERS NOW AVAILABLE € SEE PAGE 6 FOR MORE DETAILSCALL 242-1013TO GET YOURS IMy680397 MELBOURNE GOLF AT DISNEYThe Lake Buena Vista Course is my favorite on the property.

The expansion of Harris, one of Brevard County's largest employers, was announced at a conference that included numerous state and local economic development leaders. The expansion project, scheduled for completion by 2014, will include a sixstory, 450,000-square-foot engineering center for a high-technology workforce. The construction project at Harris Corp., a communications and information technology company, will begin next summer. "H arris engineers develop some of the world's most trusted technology solutions, which touch billions of lives every day," said Bill Brown, Harris president and CEO. This major initiative demonstrates our commitment to provide employment that helps foster innovative solutions around the globe," Mr. Br o wn said. H arris Corp., headquartered in Melbourne, employs 6,500 people in Br evard County from a worldwide workforce of 16,000. H arris provides a variety of technology systems worldwide, from providing a first responder radio network for Miami-Dade C ounty, to sports arena communications for the Orland Magic basketball team.

Brevard to lighten up this holiday seasonThings will look a lot brighter in Brevard this w eekend, as Space Coast LightFest makes its 11th debut at Wickham Park in M elbourne. F or the first year, the Eau G allie Rotary Club has teamed up with Brevard C ounty Parks and Recreation to host the annual event, which has been known to bring in anywhere from 8,000 to 10,000 vehicles each y ear. Fr om now through Dec. 30, the 1-mile park will transform into a winter wonderland each evening, featuring thousands of shimmering lights and animated displays for guests of all ages to enjoy. Whether it's a light-studded Santa Claus in a rocket ship or dazzling reindeer shooting across the sky, the drive-through display is as mesmerizing as it is festive. "I t' s really become a family tradition for so many people through the year," said Rick R oach, president of the Eau G allie Rotary Club. "You just gather up the family, hop in the car and go for a drive. We 'v e heard people singing Christmas carols it's just a fun event for everyone." While each light display is unique in its own way, perhaps the most memorable part of the event is the 200foot-long tunnel, featuring more than 30,000 twinkling bulbs, that concludes the trek. And if guests happen to miss anything, they can drive through the park as many times as they please with nightly admission.

G ale-force winds across Br evard County led to large spike in yard waste volumes. W aste Management mobilized to remove 1,200 loads of yard waste. The "no name" storm that smothered Brevard County with as much as 14 inches of r ain and gale-force winds ov er the weekend of Oct. 8-9 left the Space Coast wet and anxious for the return of sunshine, but it also left behind a parting gift: yard waste. A pproximately $11.5 million pounds of palm fronds, tree branches and clippings we re put out for collection after the storm in front of the 175,000 Brevard residences served by Waste Management. W aste Management, which employs 280 people and operates 157 collection vehicles in Brevard County, serves 10 Space Coast cities and the unincorporated county areas. W aste Management crews operated during the storm and returned to work the following Monday to begin collecting the debris from the storm. All of us were relieved for our friends and neighbors that the storm caused little or no damage to homes and businesses," Waste Management's Melbourne district manager Mike Lewis said. "B ut we knew we'd be busy with yard waste after the wind blew as hard as it did." A dditional equipment and manpower mobilized After assessing the amount of yard waste around the county with Brevard County S olid Waste Department management, Mr. Lewis and Da ve Wallace, Waste Management's Cocoa district manager, decided that additional equipment from Waste M anagement's facilities in Orlando and Vero Beach would be needed, along with help from subcontractors operating heavy collection equipment. C ounty management also authorized additional equipment to help expedite the r ecovery. "S ome areas, like Palm Bay, had a relatively minor spike in debris volume," Mr. Wallace said, "while other areas, particularly our beachside communities and Merritt I sland, saw more than double the normal volume. It took time to get it all off the ground, but our people were outstanding in their efforts. We are thankful to the elected officials and county and city employees who communicated with us throughout," he said. "They know their areas well and helped us tremendously by identifying areas that were hit particularly hard." Ho w much is 11.5 million pounds? W aste Management customers in Brevard County put 11.5 million pounds of yard waste out for collection from Oct. 10 through Oct. 31. How much is that? It is equivalent in weight to: 63 space shuttle orbiters 1,150 adult African elephants 40 million iPhone 4S cellular phones W aste Management's re covery effort: 280 employees 159 vehicles 1,100 employee hours 1,200 loads to disposal facilities Ya rd waste's new life The 11.5 million pounds of yard waste will all be either r ecycled or reused, thanks to the efforts of Brevard County's Solid Waste Department. M ost of the waste is chipped into mulch and sold by a county contractor. Some yard waste is chipped by county employees and used as landfill cover, while the r emainder is shipped to Polk C ounty where it is used as fuel for Wheelabrator Technology's Ridge Generating S tation waste-to-energy plant, which consumes waste wood and tires while providing clean electric energy to almost 29,000 F lorida households. Wheelabrator is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Waste Management. R esidents reminded Br evard County residents are asked to contain or bundle yard waste whenever possible, but to keep bundles or individual cuttings or branches to less than 50 pounds each to make collection safer for Waste Management employees. Tree branches should be cut to no more than 4-foot lengths for similar reasons. Br evard County and municipal code of ordinances require commercial contractors performing residential tree-trimming or yard maintenance to remove the waste themselves and deliver it to a county disposal facility and are prohibited from leaving it out for curbside collection. R esidents can contact W aste Management customer service by phone or email. R esidents in central or south Brevard should call (321) 723-4455, while north Br evard residents should call (321) 636-6894. Questions or comments can be emailed to C entralFloridaService@wm.c om.

F lorida secretary of commerce Gray Swope, president of Enterprise Florida, said Harris' expansion demonstrates "our state's competitive position for attracting and retaining progressive corporations like Harris. "W e are pleased that F lorida remains a solid business base for Harris C orp., as demonstrated by its selecting Palm Bay as the site for this innovative hightech center," Mr. Swoope said in a press release Among those attending the announcement were assistant secretary of commerce John Fernandez, r epresentatives of U.S. Sen. B ill Nelson (D-FL), State S en. Mike Haridopolos (RM erritt Island), and other officials. Chad C. Shoultz, deputy city manager of Palm Bay, said the city is uplifted by the announcement of Harri s' expansion project. The city of Palm Bay is very excited," Mr. Shoultz said. "This is 100 added technical and support positions, plus 300 contractor positions expected to last three years. "O n top of that, 1,200 employees will be relocated here," Mr. Shoultz said. I ndeed, Harris will relocate 1,200 employees to its new tech center, which will feature marked upgrades from its current 50-year-old main building on its 200acre campus. The new facility will include a fitness center, along with outdoor paths for biking and walking. Ab ov e all, Harris will provide new jobs in the region at a time they are badly needed. "H arris' worldwide innov ation will help retain a highly skilled workforce while continuing to mitigate the job loss gap," said L ynda Weatherman, president and CEO of the Economic Development Commission of Florida's Space C oast. B ob Whelen, Harris vice president and chairman of the Economic Development C ommission, said Harris' expansion will reach beyond Brevard County. This is an opportunity for us to attract worldclass talent and to establish a world-class engineering center,' Mr. Whelen said. Mr. Brown said Brevard C ounty will always be Harri s' hub, with spokes that r each worldwide. "T his long-term investment reaffirms Harris' commitment to maintain our strong presence here in C entral Florida," Mr. Brown said. "We thank the state, r egional and local organizations that are helping to make this possible."ExpansionF rom page A1 11-11.

From sfgate.com: NY man wearing 'I'm a drunk' shirt accused of DWI A New York man wearing a T -shirt declaring "I'm a drunk" is facing DWI charges after a collision with a police car. Suffolk County police arrested 23-year-old K evin Daly of Coram. They say he crashed into an officer's vehicle at about 1:45 a.m. Thursday. The officer was treated for minor injuries. Daly, who is unemployed, was wearing the Tshirt in a mug shot provided by police. It reads: "I'm not an alcoholic, I'm a drunk, Alcoholics go to meetings." From japantoday.com: Airline passengers asked for extra cash for fuel Airlines have already begun charging for food, drinks, seat assignments and baggage. Now one is demanding that passengers cough up extra cash on board for fuel. Hundreds of passengers traveling from I ndia to Britain were stranded for six hours in Vienna when their Comtel Air flight stopped for fuel. The charter service asked them to kick in more than 20,000 pounds ($31,000) to fund the rest of the flight to Birmingham, England. Britain's Channel 4 news broadcast video showing a Comtel cabin crew member telling passengers: "W e need some money to pay the fuel, to pay the airport, to pay everything we need. If you want to go to Bi r mingham, you have to pay." Some passengers said they were sent off the plane to cash machines in Vienna to raise the money. "We all got together, took our money out of purses130 pounds ($205)," said Reena Rindi, who was aboard with her daughter. "If we didn't have the money, they were making us go one by one outside, in Vienna, to get the cash out." The passengers did eventually reach Birmingham, but many expressed anger. From newser.com: C ongress Declares Pizza a V egetable Thanks to Congress, pizza is considered a vegetable at least in school lunches. Pr oposed new school lunch standards from the USDA would have limited potatoes in school lunches (think Fr ench fries) and stopped counting less than a halfcup of tomato sauce as a vegetable (think pizza), but food companies complained via $5.6 million worth of lobbying, Talking P oints Memo reports. A spending bill released r ejects those suggestions, ensuring pizza and French fries will continue to be served. Federally-subsidized school meals must contain a certain amount of vegetables, and now pizza, with its two tablespoons of tomato sauce, can continue to be one of those vegetables. The USDA's proposed changes also included limiting sodium and increasing whole grains, the AP reports, meaning that efforts to make lower-sodium, whole grain pizzas will also be delayed. "While it's unfortunate that some members of C ongress continue to put special interests ahead of the health of America's children, USDA remains committed to practical, sciencebased standards for school meals," says a USDA spokesperson. Fr om nbcconnecticut.com: Cr aigslist pot posting brings police instead U sing Craigslist to advertise that you're looking for marijuana might be one way to find a seller quickly, but it's also apparently a good way to tip off a narcotics task force.

C ouncilman Hazlett did not return calls seeking comment, and calls were also not r eturned by the West Melbourne mayor and city attorney. Mr. Scudiero said suggestions that police officers are monopolizing the city's annual budget "are unfortunate." The budget is what the budget is," Mr. Scudiero said. "The first job of every government is public safety and public service. The alternative (to not funding a police department) is dissolving your city," Mr. Scudiero said. "You can talk about draconian cuts like police and fire. But eventually, you have to look in the mirror and say, Why are we in the city business?' "Y ou can save the taxpayers money and be dissolved into the county, but I don't think that's what the citizens of West Melbourne want," Mr. Scudiero said. The West Melbourne officers signed petitions submitted to the Florida Public Employees Relation Commission. The rankand-file voted overwhelmingly to seek union r epresentation, Mr. Scudiero said. The union currently represents officers in M elbourne, Cocoa, Rockledge, Titusville and several departments in the Brevard County S heriffs Office. Mr. Scudiero said unionized officers are not necessarily forming to negotiate for higher wages and benefits, but he said cost of living adjustments could be sought in the future. C urrently, police officers earn "in the range of $30,000 to start" in most departments in the county. Mr. Scudiero said the police union would also seek to modify a wage scale to ensure that long-term employees would earn more than incoming rookie officers. B ut Mr. Scudiero said any wage discussions are in the future. "E verybody recognizes the economic realities we're in, so we're not looking to bankrupt the city. Officers just want to keep what they have," he said. When it's time to negotiate every year, if conditions merit, we would seek to have adjustments upward for cost of living. But that is down the line," Mr. Scudiero said.UnionF rom page A1 In the typical AMMYY scam, a caller says he is with the Microsoft Corp. technical support team and has discovered that your computer is infected with a virus. The unsuspecting victim is directed to search his computer programs, where he discovers a location where r ed flag warnings can be seen. The caller says those red flags verify that the victim's computer is infected with a virus. B ut red flag warnings are common for anyone who conducts a search of his computer programs. The warnings are not actively hindering the user's computer. The caller directs the victim to a website, AMMYY, and guides the victim through computer steps that r esult in a self-inflicted virus. The caller then offers to free the disabled computer from the freshly installed virus for a large credit card fee, of course. Ho we ver, the computer is never repaired. The scammers just want the money. In addition, scammers can install spyware or malware in your computer's hard drive to obtain vital banking and credit card information if you cooperate with the alleged technician. On the Internet, victims from Australia, Ireland and Scotland recently shared experiences after receiving the AMMYY call. "I am in Ireland and I have been contacted a number of times," one potential victim wrote. "Each time I hang up. They are very persistent." The computer virus scam is just the latest in a long line of telephone and Internet scams, said Major Michael De Mo r at of the Brevard C ounty Sheriff's Office. "P eople just have to be very cautious in using their computers," Major DeMorat said. "Don't wire or send any money unless you have fully checked people out. "N ever give your personal information over the phone or send money. Legitimate businesses don't operate that way. Take the time to do r esearch so you don't become a victim," Major De Mo r at said. M icrosoft Corp., for example, does not contact customers by telephone, Major De Mo r at said. "Don't take what a caller is saying at face value," the major said. "There are quite a few scammers out there, and they are very creative in their methods. It seems like every day there is a new scam circulating around." W est Melbourne Police C ommander Steve Wilkinson said local police do not have the resources to track money lost to computer scammers around the world. "P ersonal caution is the best way to go," Commander Wi lkinson said. "There are millions of those scams out there. "I t would be impossible for law enforcement to have the money and time and r esources to run down every single call from around the world." S enior citizens, in particular, should be wary of telephone scammers because seniors are retired and usually near the phone, Commander Wilkinson said. "S eniors are targeted because they trust," Commander Wilkinson said. They grew up in a time when you left your house unlocked." C ommander Wilkinson said residents should be suspicion of unsolicited phone calls or emails. "B eing suspicious of callers like that is the best prevention," he said. Don't just take the steps they want you to take. They want your credit card number so they can go shopping."ScamF rom page A1

Ha ve you attended the Space Coast condo Association (meetings)? Ha ve you even been told that these meetings are held the third Saturday of the month and that you are all invited? H as anyone told you about the great speakers full of condo law knowledge who have given up their time to inform you of your rights? They keep you abreast of the new laws as they affect you and your neighbors. It is your property. You have every right to keep the present board if you feel they are representing your concerns. B ut are they? In my condo, our president ask s our legal beagle for advice, and do you know what? He disregards their advice after being billed their rate. Again, we know nothing about this travesty. It 's time for a vote. How about when you ask for an accounting of items that money has been spent on and no bill can be found to support the item or no warranty is available. It 's time for a vote.P oliticians need to cut their own salaries and perksWhy is it when Washington wants to cut "something", it is always things that affect mainly senior citizens: Medicare, M edicaid, Social Security (already no increases for the past two years, while Congress votes themselves a raise); education and some services. If the politicians were truly concerned about the budget, they need to cut their own salaries and perks, starting with the president and on down the political line. Add to the cuts should be foreign aid, especially to countries that hate America. At one time, the White House proposed that the military pay for their own medical and other benefits. The Washington fat cats are getting fatter while the rest of the country scrimps to survive this dour economy. M aybe now the public will wake up to what the present administration has done and is doing to our country and not be so apathetic about voting.F orget the antenna, go online for TVThis is in answer to the rant about the TV and every movie they put on repeats about 10 or 15 times. W ell, my answer is this: It's not about getting an antenna, because they do the same thing, which is free. B ut if you go to your computer, if you punch up (Google.com?) and a couple of other stations, you can get thousands of movies with little, or no, commercials and thousands of TV shows that are better than they are putting on TV. I'm tired of it, too.Saving my dogsI would like to thank the young man who helped save the lives of my two dogs. It 's ironic. I had just read in H ometown News about people r iding with their dogs in their laps. I had never done this before, but for some reason this evening I had my window down and I let my beagle on my lap. As I was turning a corner, he fell out. I freaked. I stopped my car, put on my flashers and, in my haste and being so scared, I left my door open; and my other dog jumped out of the car. This young man, who was behind me, helped me get my dogs. My dogs were terrified. They didn't take off running. They just stood there. He helped me to gather my dogs back into my car and told me to drive safely. I just wanted to thank him for helping me. I have learned a very valuable lesson.Drop Saturday delivery?I nstead of closing some post offices, why don't they just stop delivering mail on Saturday?Get the story straightI had an incident because I am disabled. I lose my balance. I fell. Pa r amedics came and took the information I told them and gave their version (I heard it) to the doctor, and I was brought to the emergency room. That took time that was of essence for me to have to explain to the doctor what he was told by the paramedics was not correct. P lease first responders, public officials, nurses and doctors, please write your notes or remember to use verbatim. Y our version is not the facts. Verbatim is.Bullying children and parentsThis is to address a problem that seems to be getting more and more out of control in our counties, our cities and our country. The bullying issue between children is a very big problem. It also comes from adults. Bullying a child while you are an adult is a moral crime. I wish it was a legal crime. It seems that you can call a minor child any name you want as long as you don't touch or threaten that child. And we wonder where the bullies are being raised from. S ome of their parents are big bullies who don't seem to think that children are not children, and that they can talk to children any way they want. We could stop bullying if we all work together.Get off the phone and drive rightI have a Rant and Rave about people cutting you off while driving, don't even look or anything when they pull out a r un a red light, run a stop sign and could cause an accident. They are on cell phones or texting. What is wrong with people? And you wonder why you have accidents. Y ou are not supposed to be on the phone when you are driving. Get off the phone and drive. Pull over.Signing autographsI was just wondering why you guys would put a picture of a professional surfer signing the chest on a 15-year-old girl. There is a little inappropriateness there. It's a nice big picture right next to the Rant & Rave line. So thanks for the picture, and I hope you guys do something about it in next week's paper.To heck with the little guyAll those protests against Wall Street is not doing any good. Look at the price of oil. It is almost $100 a barrel. There is no big demand for gas, but those people don't care. And eventually the prices will have to go up at the gas pump because those people are stockpiling it. No w, this is unfair. The common people are getting the brunt of it all. Those people just want to make more money and more money and to heck with the little guy. I'm tired of it. There is going to be a big revolt in this country if they don't back off.Moving the rainwater letterI was just reading the H ometown News in Rants and Raves about moving the rainwater to the desert. A bout three months ago, I wrote to President Obama when we had all the floodwater from the Mississippi and the C olorado rivers and all that. And my suggestion was: Take all the dikes and aqueducts that are already in place and extend them down to Texas where they have the biggest droughts have cost millions and millions of dollars and just follow the rivers, Mississippi, etc., and stage them with their own aqueducts to canals, it would create thousands and thousands of jobs. P ut all new levies in, and instead of using dirt levies, use concrete building a main highway down from the Great Lakes all the way down to the Gulf Coast. Each state would do their own, employing their own guys. And I never heard nothing back, and that was my son's idea. He had to do a project for school. If y ou look at the Hoover Dam, it produced millions and millions of dollars and produced thousands and thousands of jobs.Kids should be in schoolI just like to mention that I've noticed a lot of kids younger than 16 or 17 and as young as 10 years old riding their bicycles in groups of around the neighborhood. They are not in school, and I know it's not a day off from school. I was just concerned what would you tell them since there are no truant officers. Shouldn't a responsible parent from the neighborhood tell these kids how come they are not in school? Mind your own business holy roller'Let me start out by answering your assumption on me nothaving any belief in the Bible. My religious beliefs are none of your business. If y ou are such a "holy roller," then you must also know the Bible says "Thou shall not judge," and dear, that's exactly what you are doing. The Bible also states that a woman is to give her husband sex whenever he wants it. So, how much of the Bible do you follow? Just the parts you agree with? Also, children from a home with a mother and father can be just as damaged as any other family dynamic. I know this for a fact. You are ridiculous to even blame your own brother's being ill on his lifestyle choice. F or you to even dare say that men and women are being punished" by disease that they "put upon themselves," please, wake up. I think you should examine your morals. And by the way, marriage to some is not a holy union. M ind your business, worry about the things in the world that are actually affecting you. Same-sex marriage is not one of them. Proposed fire fee commentsF irst, I have no complaints about the excellent work done by the police and fire departments. All of my personal exper iences have been handled in a polite, professional manner. How ever, I have extreme reservations about the city council passing measures to create another fee without having it voted on by our residents, who are currently having to cut way back on their personal expenditures. After talking to many knowledgeable people, it is my opinion that creation of a separate fire fee is illegal. I have also been advised that it is most likely that a class action suit will be made to stop the enforcement of this fee. This will cost the city a lot of time and money to fight these actions. This will be a colossal waste of money needed for other essential services. I have been completely unable to find financial savings by going this route, so why is it even being proposed? I have heard hundreds of comments that it is simply a selfish political interest of those council members voted into office by the efforts of police and fire personnel. The expenditures for fire and police protection should r emain as part of the general budget so these expenditures will be in direct competition with all budgeted needs. If additional cuts are required to the budget because of even more cuts in income to the city, then cuts should be considered equally and fire and police protection budgets must be subject to the same type of cuts in the number of people employed and the pay received.We need a new condo boardD id you know it is time to vote a new board?

Pogo is currently in the Paws & Stripes Program at the Brevard County Jail Complex, and is available for adoption. Ad sponsored by: BUSINESSHearing loss directly linked to loss of actual gray matter in older adultsA multi-disciplinary r esearch team from the U niversity of Pennsylvania, headed by prominent neuro-scientist Dr. Jonathan P eelle, published an article in the Aug. 31 issue of "The J ournal of Neuroscience" outlining the research methodologies and tools they used to verify this disturbing discovery. This research uncovered a "linear" correlation between hearing loss and the loss of actual gray matter, within the central auditory cortex of the brains of older adults ov er time. This had what they described as a "cascading effect" on the entire central nervous system and our ability to solve complex sentences, and higher level r easoning, as these losses progress. U sing functional magnetic r esonance imaging and voxel based morphometry, this team of scientists found that, as the signal being r eceived in the central auditory cortex became more degraded, those neurons associated with identifying and processing the signals into sounds, or meaningful speech recruited, or called upon fewer and fewer of their neighbouring cells. The weaker the signal from the ears becomes, the fewer the number of cells that are stimulated in these critical processing centers of our brains, and the fewer of their neighbours they call upon to analyze these degraded signals, resulting in a further decrease in processing ability overall. The research team was able to make their linear correlations and draw a direct r elationship between the loss in hearing and loss of actual gray matter volume in older adults by studying the organizational structure and relative size of young adults' brains with hearing losses similar to those being studied in the older adult group. The shrinkage in volume occurred over time and was not evident in those young adults, or those suffering from recent hearing loss. This research uncovers the specific neural structures involved, how they evolve and shrink over time and provides the anatomical explanation for the results observed in broad based studies of hearing impaired veterans published in the early nineties. The VA studies showed a direct loss in ability to understand speech over time when comparing aided and unaided ears and cases. These earlier VA studies also indicated this same correlation between loss of processing ability and loss of hearing acuity over time. The University of Pennsylv ania study clearly validates the VA work and provides the anatomical explanation for how and why these changes are occurring. The implications of this study are clear. Continuously degraded stimulation of the central auditory processing centers of our brains results, in these centers being able to process fewer and fewer higher order processing tasks. This becomes associated with an actual shrinkage in the volume of brain matter over time, as these unstimulated cells and their neural connections degrade due to atrophy and lack of adequate stimulation. This work also validates what I've been telling my patients for years. That there are real and serious consequences to our overall health, especially our mental health, from the postponement, or failure to correct, as this study showed, even a moderate Business newsAN NOUNCEMENTS New executive director namedS ome people see art appreciation as a passive activity and luxury that ends wherever the art is housed.

25 full-time employees working for a full week," Ms. Steele said. The MCC freshman spent their morning cleaning up the beaches in Indialantic and Indian Harbour B each, and the sophomores assisted with landscaping, cleaning, painting and children's activities at partner Catholic schools O ur Lady of Lourdes in M elbourne, Ascension in M elbourne, St. Joseph's in P alm Bay and Holy Name of Jesus in Indialantic. In addition, the school's juniors provided maintenance and landscaping at three Melbourne-based Genesis House locations, while the seniors reached out to senior citizens by leading various recreational activities at Trinity Towers in Melbourne, The F ountains in Palm Bay, Sa r ah Care in Melbourne and other senior communities across the Space C oast. The concept for this project was to allow students to link the idea of giving back to the community to what it says in the B ible, then apply those teachings with first-hand experience here in the community," Ms. Steele said. "We've gotten some amazing feedback so far, and we hope to make this an annual event." D espite hours of manual labor, MCC junior Laura Ki r kman, 16, of Satellite B each seemed pleased with the various projects she and her classmates completed Wednesday at Genesis House No. 1 in M elbourne, which serves as a transitional housing shelter for homeless women and their children. T ogether the three houses, which also shelter student mothers with children and homeless pregnant women, have a total of 45 beds. Fr om sanitizing playground equipment and spray-painting patio furniture to raking leaves and landscaping the facility's exterior, the students performed activities many had never done before. "I think it's really awesome that our whole school came together and took a day out to give back to our community," Laura said. "I hope our work will help make the place cleaner and safer for the residents here." "O ur work today will hopefully inspire some of us to volunteer and give back to our community in the future," added junior K aty Hammond, 16, of M elbourne. Ma ry Allen, founder and president of the Genesis H ouse board of directors, said she was overjoyed with the inspiring work put forth by such young students. They just were so busy and did such an enthusiastic job, and we're really thrilled that (MCC) chose us as one of their nonprofits for this project," Ms. Allen said. "And with such a large group like this, their work really made an impact and such significant improvements to our organization." At nearby Trinity Towers, an independent living center for seniors, the same sense of appreciation was also felt. S enior students spent their morning Nov. 16 playing games and doing arts and crafts with more than 30 residents of the facility. There were definitely a few nerves in the beginning, but it didn't take long for everyone to open up and enjoy each other's company," said Michelle Mc N eight, 17, of Indian H arbour Beach. "I thought it was a great experience seeing our class come together like this. I've never seen the boys be as gentleman-like and kind as they were today." The feeling seemed to be mutual. "I think it's the most wonderful thing these kids coming out," said Tr inity Towers resident Ma r ia Combs, while designing a Christmas card for her granddaughter, alongside several students. "I hope they come again soon." F ollowing their day of service, all MCC students r eturned to campus where they attended a mass, highlighting the importance of giving back to the community. "T his day was an example of how our faculty and staff are modeling church teachings by participating and leading MCC students in this day of service for others," President Burke said, in an email Wednesday. "I am so proud of our MCC family. This is the day that not only do we talk to walk, but we walk the walk."

the late 1950s, created the event as a way to bring the community closer during the holiday season and raise funds to help its many charitable organizations. In addition to providing a unique event for the Brevard C ounty community, Space C oast LightFest also helps fill local food banks, such as the S outh Brevard Sharing Center and the Salvation Army. Each year, guests who bring at least two canned goods per vehicle to the event will re ceive $2 off their admission cost. Last year, we collected four tons of food," Mr. Roach said. "Being able to contribute so much really encouraged us to bring the event back again this year." Any leftover proceeds from this year's LightFest will be donated to such Brevard organizations as AMIkids, H abitat for Humanity, the Salv ation Army and Devereux F lorida, which provides behavioral health, intellectual and child welfare services to children. Also, on Dec. 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22 and 23, Eau Gallie Rotary will be offering a hayride that will travel through the park and spectacular light display. C ost is $5 per person or $15 for families of three or more, and children younger than 2 are free. The Space Coast LightFest is one of Eau Gallie Rotary Club's largest fundraisers and takes nearly two months of preparation and dozens of volunteers to become a reality. "I t' s a huge undertaking, but, it continues to be worthwhile," Mr. Roach said. S pace Coast LightFest will r un nightly through Friday, De c. 30 from 6-9:30 p.m. C ost is $10 per car or $8 with two or more canned food items.

The baskets, which are actually large storage containers, are packed with holiday meal items (such as sweet potatoes, dinner rolls, and pumpkin pie filling) as well as common pantry staples (canned tuna, rice, and macaroni and cheese). They are festively decorated by the students and are individually b lessed in a chapel service before Thanksgiving. One co-chair at the Lower School says that it is extremely rewardingŽ for the children to see the baskets come together and hear a little about the families who will benefit from them. The families are identified through a local church and The Dorcas Outreach Center for Kids, w hich is a natural fit, as the Honor Society and other Upper School students regularly volunteer there. This Thanksgiving prog ram has been a tradition at Holy Trinity for a quarter century. In fact, theres a popular story thats regularly shared amongst the participating parents at the Lower School that illustrates this fact. Its about a Holy Trinity parent who came into contact with a man whose family had been a recipient of a bask et when he was a child.

When most people think about golf at W alt Disney World, they think of the Palm and M agnolia Courses where the PGA Tour plays the last official event on its calendar each year. Some of us, however, are old enough to r emember when the tour also played at Disney's Lake B uena Vista Course. The PGA Tour last used the Lake Buena Vista Course during the Disney Classic in 1997. The tour may have left, but for me, the Lake Buena V ista Course is my favorite on the property. It's not long by any means. In fact, you can still see some of the very back tees the tour added to lengthen the course enough to challenge the top professionals. What Lake Buena Vista lacks in length, it makes up for with challenging greens, tree-lined fairways, lots of bunkers and some of the most beautiful trees and fauna on any of the Disney tracks. D esigned by Joe Lee, it has four sets of tees, playing to a par of 72 for the men and 73 for the ladies. The very back tees play to a couple of yards over 6,800. The forward tees come in at just over 5,200 yards. The course starts you off with a par-5 that should allow you to get your round going early. While it's not a long hole at 514 yards from the back tees, it is fraught with danger should you hit the ball left and into the water. The front nine wanders its way through pastel vacation villas and past a lighthouse. The short par-3 seventh features an island green. It's by no means as intimidating as the one at Sawgrass, but it's still a tough shot with the wind blowing. H oles eight and nine are the No. 1 and No. 5 toughest holes on the course. The par-5 eighth will test you on y our second shot as the woods encroach from both sides the closer you get to the green. The back nine features dense woods surrounding the course. At one point, y ou will tee off over a canal as a Disney boat meanders by. The 16th is the longest par-3 on the course, coming in at 200 yards from the back tees. The 17th is the longest of the par-5s and plays alongside the Treehouse Villas that are some of the most popular vacation accommodations at the r esort. E ighteen is a stout par 4 that measures well over 400 yards. The hole rewards the daring golfer who can play a tee shot from left to right with a shorter approach. This may come in handy as y ou have to hit a narrow green surrounded by bunkers and trees. There is a great variety of holes at the course. The par4s vary in length from just ov er 300 yards to nearly 450 yards. There are par-5s that are reachable with a pair of solid shots, and one that will r uin a good day if you take it too lightly. This course challenges y our strength of muscle and mind. The greens are small, elevated and well-bunkered, demanding accurate shotmaking. You will use not only every club in your bag, but also every type of shot in your arsenal. Best of all, y ou get to do it while surrounded by the magic of D isney. You can schedule y our round by calling (407) WDW-GOLF. No day of golf would be complete without experiencing two more of my favorite things, food and great sports on television. After my round of golf, I headed just up the street to B uffalo Wild Wings ( www.BuffaloWildWings.co m ) for some wings, beer and college football. The beer was cold, the wings were hot and tasty, and I had every game imaginable to choose from. Ne ver mind the recipe for a perfect Thanksgiving turkey; I have found the one for a perfect Saturday.

4NOR TH Brevard CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 11 Gift ideas for the outdoors, adventurous people in your life I magine the wind in your hair as you take flight aboard a fully restored, opencockpit 1940s Waco Biplane. Br evard County has never looked the same, as you and a guest pass over the calmness of the Indian River Lagoon and the unique structures at Kennedy Space C enter. There's so much to see, but somehow y ou still feel at ease. A venture that may seem unattainable for many is now within reach, thanks to F lorida Biplanes. B ased out of the Merritt Island Airport, the business offers daily 15-, 30and 45minute scenic rides, as well as romantic, sunset and full-moon rides. F or those looking for a thrilling adventure, Florida Biplanes also offers over-theocean aerobatic rides, which includes loops, rolls, wingovers and more. While the business, which opened in O ctober, is new to the Space Coast, the F lorida Biplanes staff has a tremendous amount of experience in aviation, said founder, Mark Grainger. All of our pilots hold airline transport pilot certificates and most currently fly as major airline captains," he said. "With an average of more than 15,000 hours of flight experience each, guests are sure to feel safe and comfortable." Mr. Grainger himself began his career in aviation at age 13, working as a ground crew member at a small airpark in Vi r ginia. He has since flown everything from hang gliders, sailplanes, crop dusters and banner planes to commuters, charters, airlines and fighter jets. As an airline pilot, I've worked a lot of different side businesses for years and y ears," he said. "I realized it was finally time to do something on the side that's fun for more than just me." So Mr. Grainger started Florida B iplanes, as a way to provide others with an experience they will not soon forget. Staff photo by Andy StefanekSteve Nesbitt, a pilot for Florida Biplanes, navigates a 1940 Waco UPF-7 biplane over the Space Coast.

T oday, photographs can be brought to life in a way that was never imagined. At M ichaels, a well-known arts and crafts shop in West Melbourne, one of the hottest holiday gifts this season is a "photo creations" program that enables families to do more with photographs than ever before. While shoppers may be lining up for an Xbox 360 game system, a bigscreen TV in 3-D, or an Apple iPad tablet computer, there are still some gifts that retain their relevance over time. At M ichaels, located in Hammock Landing mall, a new computer program enables users to transform their photographs by enhancing them with an endless variety of styles, backgrounds and borders. Be yo nd simply uploading their photos on Facebook, families can transform their photos through photo books, scrapbooks and personalized postcards. Soon, Michael will complete a program that will allow photography buffs to create calendars using their favorite photos. The program even enables users to do basic photo cropping. Da ve Steinleitner, Michaels' store manager, said the store has set aside what it calls a "memory department." "B asically, you can take a photo album and embellish it," Mr. Steinleitner said. "Say you went on a v acation to the islands. Here, you can put all kinds of stickers on your photo page. People are doing all kinds of creative things to personalize their photos. There are a lot of things you can add to a memory album, from charms to backgrounds," he said. M ichaels' website, michaels.com, includes a web page called Mi D esign@Michaels, which offers a video primer for a variety of photo projects. Mr. Steinleitner said computer buffs can embellish their photographs on line by download the M ichaels program. The MiDesign program includes more than 9,000 embellishments and contains more than 2,000 backgrounds. The program offers customized themes that can be preselected, or you can start with a blank canvas to construct your own theme. Mr. Steinleitner said families can send out personalized Christmas cards this season, using the MiDesign program. "Y ou can change bordering, put different backgrounds on it," Mr. S teinleitner said. "You can do it all on line. The system is user-friendly." P at Johnson, Michaels' customer experience manager, said photographic scrapbooking "is one of the biggest-selling things." "I t' s a lot different than when you just slid your photos into a magnetic page," Ms. Johnson said. Ms. Johnson said that because of digital photography, fewer people send film to be developed and many of them print their own photos, so the Michael's digital photo program is easy to use. Among other popular gifts of the season: Amazon Kindle. Amazon's latest version of its e-Book reader can download and store up to 3,500 books, newspapers, magazines, blogs and other digital media. The wireless e-Book reader has improved contrast so it can be read more easily at the beach, or anywhere portable readers can be taken. Xbox 360 with Kinect. Game lovers will find more to do than ever with Xbox 360 with the Kinect feature that puts gamers virtually into their TV systems, controlling an avatar.

Because so many people travel during the holidays, airports are more crowded than usual and the nation's r oadways often experience heavy traffic, especially on the days immediately before and after a holiday. While there's not much travelers can do to reduce the number of fellow travelers come the holiday season, there are certain dos and don'ts that can make holiday travel much easier. DO plan ahead. Leaving holiday travel plans until the last minute is a r ecipe for disaster. Some air travelers feel it's more affordable to book flights in the weeks leading up to the holidays rather than months in advance. While it's possible to find last minute airline deals, it's very possible such deals will put travelers on standby. That's potentially disastrous during a travel season that has frequent flight delays or cancellations due to inclement weather. Book travel plans as early as possible to avoid the hassles of last minute bookings. DON'T blame airport staff if things go awry. The holiday season can be stressful for those who have to travel, but it's exceedingly stressful for the men and women who work in the travel industry. Airline employees, particularly those who work at ticket counters, are too often treated poorly by travelers who need someone to blame for flight delays and cancellations. The same goes for the people who work at bus or train stations. R egardless of how inconvenient inter-F or Hometown NewsnewsML@hometownnewsol.com See TRAVEL, See TRAVEL, 13

It's often a result of inclement weather, which is something no one can control. Should travel plans be delayed or cancelled, r emain courteous, compassionate and respectful of staff. Doing so is the right thing to do, and it might just garner you some consideration when the time comes to reschedule plans. DO insure your trip. As mentioned above, flight delays and cancellations are common during the holiday season. Heavy snowfall can wreak havoc on travel plans, even for those people who live in relatively temperate climates. Travelers traveling to or from regions where heavy snowfall is a possibility should always protect themselves against flight cancellations or delays by insuring their trips. Insurance is often inexpensive and can protect travelers if their flight plans go awry. The peace of mind insurance provides can also reduce the stress of holiday travel. DON'T try to make up for lost time. While there's little air travelers can do to make up for lost time, those traveling by automobile often try to make up for lost time by driving aggressively. Nothing could be more dangerous, as the roads are often overcrowded and driving conditions during the holidays are ra r ely ideal. Even if a traffic jam or other delay makes it impossible to stick to your travel schedule, don't r isk disaster with aggressive driving. I nstead, call your destination and explain you will be a little late because of delays on the roadway. No matter where you are going, be it a hotel or to a friend or family member's house, they will understand the situation and they will certainly prefer you get there safe and sound, even if that means getting there a little later than originally planned. DO be an early bird. The early bird gets the worm, and when it comes to holiday travel, the early bird can also significantly reduce the stress of traveling. If traveling by air, get to the airport extra early. This way you won't have to fret when the lines at baggage check or security checkpoints are long. If traveling via automobile, get up early and hit the r oad before most drivers are even out of bed. It might not be fun to get up so early, but you will likely start y our trip off with little to no traffic. DON'T overdo it. It's tempting to try to see everyone during the holiday season, but most travelers would prefer to stay in one place for more time than to continue traveling from place to place without spending much time at any one place. Traveling too much can lead to exhaustion, which is especially dangerous for those traveling by automobile. If possible, spread out holiday travel as much as you can, and attempt to spend at least two nights sleeping in the same bed before hitting the road again. H oliday travel doesn't have to be so difficult. Adhering to a few dos and don'ts can make this year's holiday travel far less stressful. Arriving early at the airport during the holiday season is one way to reduce the stress of travel during one of the busiest travel seasons of the year. metrocreativeconnection.com

14NOR TH Brevard CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 11 Ma ke y our holiday shopping personal Icannot tell you how many times I have seen a small business open up in my community, say to myself, "Oh, that's great, I'll have to get in there," and then drive by months later and realize that I have y et to make that first stop to see what this new venture is all about. This frustrates me. My intentions are good. And maybe if I had seen va r ious advertisements reminding me about the place, I would have made that visit. The best part is when it's locally o wned; it's not just a business, but a person possibly a neighbor or someone I know from the gym or the park or school events. It's personal. I think of the excitement they must have had when first getting the idea for the business, putting it together and actually seeing it take shape. Then, as the excitement slowly fades and the reality of success or failure is in plain view, the realization of such a brave move takes hold. It is all of our responsibility to help our local business people succeed. It is the core of a community. The lifeblood. Without our local business partners, we would be left with only the large national chains with no ties to our community, only looking to take our money and run when times get rough. So this holiday season, I have made a pact with myself to purchase everything I possibly can from local purveyors. Bikes, music, wine, gourmet food, books, even clothes for my trendy wife can be found in businesses owned by those who live among us. Su re I might pay a little more, but that extra coin will stay in my community, not be shipped off to some corporate headquarters up north. And by purchasing local, you get hometown service. It's nice to be able to pick up the phone and get an actual person on the line or walk into a place and talk to the same person who sold you an item. H oliday dinners and parties? Local r estaurants only. There's something to be said about walking into a place where everyone knows your name." N ot that all locally owned businesses are perfect. Many of them are o wned by people who have never been in business for themselves before. But because they dreamed and dared, I think we can cut them a little slack while they work out the kinks. If we stick with them now, think of the gratitude they will show us later. I hope you will join me in patronizing locally owned businesses this holiday season. Because it's not just business, it's personal. S teve Erlanger is publisher and chief operations officer for H ometown N ews. PUBLISHERSTEVE ERLANGER So, this holiday season, I have made a pact with myself to purchase everything I possibly can from local purveyors.

Happy holidays! Just in case y ou are stumped on what to get that special golfer on y our holiday gift list, I have a few suggestions. P utters have become an art form, and no one is better at creating a putter that is also a piece of art than Br uce Sizemore. His latest line is a collaboration with Super Stroke (www.superstrokeusa.com), the company with the oversize grips that K.J. Choi has used with much success. The Diamond Cut Finish line features four new models, with two mallets on the way. The putter was designed to work in concert with the S uper Stroke grips. The result is a beautiful putter that performs even better than it looks. You can even custom build your own right on the w ebsite for an even more perfect fit. If y ou know someone who’s not swing the club as fast as they used to, or simply want something lighter, faster and ultimately longer in their hands, try Tour Edge's (www.touredge.com) new Bazooka HT Max-D drivers and fairway woods. The new HT Max D line features an aerodynamic design and lighter, longer shaft that helps generate faster club head speed for longer shots. The deep face, huge sweet spot and advanced weighting technology combine to deliver explosive power and accuracy. B est of all, the driver retails for under $150 and the fairways under $120 and come with Tour Edge’s lifetime warranty and a 30-day performance guarantee. If yo ur golfer loves to travel, the D atrek Golf’s (www.datrekgolf.com) three-piece travel set may be the perfect gift. The set includes a golf bag travel cover with wheels, a duffle bag and a shoe bag for under $100. The travel cover features lots of padding and extra pockets and also has in-line skate wheels for a smooth, easy roll. The duffle bag is just the r ight size for a carry-on. Ev ery golfer could use some practice. Improving you putting is the quickest way to lower your score. Fan M ats and Tour Links (www.TourLinks.net) has combined the logo from your favorite professional team, or college or military branch into its new line of putting greens. These greens feature club speed turf with adjustable breaks and two r egulation cups and pins. The 4-foot by 10-foot green is ready for use in any indoor or outdoor space. Molded from high impact polymers, the patented design makes installation a snap. K angarila (www.kangarila.com) is a new way of playing golf that will add an extra level of fun or frustration to y our game. In this game the balls act as dice. The balls are printed with the names of different clubs such as “wedge” or “7-iron.” You tee off and hit y our Kangarila golf ball. When you arrive at the ball, the side facing up will tell you which club you must use for your next shot. I t’s a great way to add some fun and improve on your shot-making skills. Y ou can even just choose one or two holes each round where you play the K angarila balls. While we don’t experience snow and seldom see freezing temperatures for any extended period of time, we F loridians still need jackets and sweaters. A bacus Apparel (www.abacusoutdoor.com) is the company that outfitted the European Solheim Cup team. Its new pebble fleece jacket is perfect for those cool days that we see in the winter here. The soft, warm polyester fleece features a full-length front zipper and flat-lock seams that allow you to stay warm and unrestricted while swinging. The newest apparel from Sunice (www.sunice.com), outfitter to the U.S. Solheim Cup team, is its T yphoon Collection. The company has added the benefit of “full-stretch” to this line. Now in addition to a breathable, lightweight, quieter performance fabric, you get the benefit of a garment that stretches with you while keeping the wind and rain away. B ooks are another great gift idea. S tuart resident Judy Alvarez is a world r enowned golf instructor and “Golf D igest” Florida top 15 teacher. She has trained PGA and LPGA professionals, conducted seminars, clinics and more. H er new book “Broken Tees and M ended Hearts” is an inspirational r ead. In the book she talks of her experiences working as an instructor for veterans and civilians with disabilities. It is available at most book stores, golf shops and through her website at www.JudyAlvarez.com. F inally, there is always a gift certificate for a round of golf or even a cap or shirt from their favorite course. Some of the more famous courses in the country will even ship hats and shirts to you if you call them and place an order with your credit card. Whatever you decide I’m sure the golfer on your list will love the thought that went into it. Just be sure to avoid the topless lady tees!

So gather up the family and spend a memorable evening at one of the Space C oast's delicious dining establishments. If C entral Brevard is your neck of the woods, be sure to check out Bonefish W illy's Riverfront Grille in Melbourne, a family-owned hot spot that brings the feel of the islands right to the Space Coast.

This year, think outside of the box and show loved ones you care by giving intangible gifts that improve their health. Know someone that could use stress relief? Marlene's M obile Massage will deliver massage therapy right to that individual's home. M arlene Houldsworth, a licensed massage therapist and owner of the business, has been giving massages for six y ears. She has logged more than 500 hours in anatomy and physiology classes and 100 hours after graduation giving various massages. U nlike massage therapists who practice a specific style of massage, Ms. H ouldsworth is skilled at all types, including deep tissue, neuromuscular therapy, tai chi, aromatherapy, colon therapy and herbal remedies. "I cater to clients' specific needs," she said. S he will travel from Port St. L ucie to Viera and anywhere in between, with different priced packages depending on her travel time. This holiday season, she offers specials on gift certificates. For more information, call Marlene's M obile Massage at (321) 4462564. Gl ad Eyecare and Aesthetics, located at 2061 Palm Bay R oad, Suite 100, in Palm Bay, There are a lot of things you can add to a memory album, from charms to backgrounds," he said. M ichaels' website, michaels.com, includes a w eb page called MiDesign@Michaels, which offers a video primer for a variety of photo projects. Mr. Steinleitner said computer buffs can embellish their photographs on line by download the Michaels program. The MiDesign program includes more than 9,000 embellishments and contains more than 2,000 backgrounds. The program offers customized themes that can be pre-selected, or y ou can start with a blank canvas to construct y our own theme. Mr. Steinleitner said families can send out personalized Christmas cards this season, using the MiDesign program. "Y ou can change bordering, put different backgrounds on it," Mr. Steinleitner said. "You can do it all on line. The system is user-friendly." P at Johnson, Michaels' customer experience manager, said photographic scrapbooking "is one of the biggest-selling things." "I t' s a lot different than when you just slid y our photos into a magnetic page," Ms. J ohnson said. Ms. Johnson said that because of digital photography, fewer people send film to be developed and many of them print their own photos, so the Michael's digital photo program is easy to use. Among other popular gifts of the season: Amazon Kindle. Amazon's latest version of its e-Book reader can download and store up to 3,500 books, newspapers, magazines, blogs and other digital media. The wireless e-Book reader has improved contrast so it can be read more easily at the beach, or anywhere portable r eaders can be taken. Xbox 360 with Kinect. Game lovers will find more to do than ever with Xbox 360 with the K inect feature that puts gamers virtually into their TV systems, controlling an avatar. Kinect enables users to control and interact with the Xbox 360 without touching a game controller. Apple iPad. Are personal desktop and laptop computers becoming obsolete? It seems that way with tablet computers such as Apple iPad, the wafer-thin hand-held system. With increased speed and super-fast graphics, Wi-Fi connects at the touch of a screen to launch books, magazines, movies, music, games, and w eb content. Espresso machine. As in the past, you can't go wrong with a piping hot cup of coffee. A new pet. Another old-school gift that lasts is an addition to an animal lover's stable.

14SOUTH Brevard CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 11 Ma ke y our holiday shopping personal Icannot tell you how many times I have seen a small business open up in my community, say to myself, "Oh, that's great, I'll have to get in there," and then drive by months later and realize that I have yet to make that first stop to see what this new venture is all about. This frustrates me. My intentions are good. And maybe if I had seen various advertisements reminding me about the place, I would have made that visit. The best part is when it's locally o wned; it's not just a business, but a person possibly a neighbor or someone I know from the gym or the park or school events. It 's personal. I think of the excitement they must have had when first getting the idea for the business, putting it together and actually seeing it take shape. Then, as the excitement slowly fades and the r eality of success or failure is in plain view, the realization of such a brave move takes hold. It is all of our responsibility to help our local business people succeed. It is the core of a community. The lifeblood. W ithout our local business partners, we would be left with only the large national chains with no ties to our community, only looking to take our money and run when times get rough. So this holiday season, I have made a pact with myself to purchase everything I possibly can from local purveyors. Bikes, music, wine, gourmet food, with an experience they will not soon forget. The Waco UPF-7 Biplane he flies once served as a WWII trainer, an aircraft flown by similar scenic ride businesses throughout the country. The biplane can accommodate two passengers per flight, in addition to the pilot, and comes equipped with a mounted video camera, so guests can experience their flight for years to come. G uests can experience a heightened view of Brevard landmarks, such as the beaches, Port Canaveral, Kennedy S pace Center, the NASA shuttle r unway, St. John's waterway basin and more. Prices begin at $75 per person. In addition to escaping some of the stress of the holidays on your own, F lorida Biplane tours make excellent holiday gifts. G ift certificates can be purchased via the website, www.floridabiplanes.com, as well as by calling (321) 392-4122. "P urchasing a tour as a gift is not only an experience, it's a memory that will never be forgotten," Mr. Grainger said. "The person giving the gift can also share it, by coming along. It's a way to bring a little magic to your holiday." F lorida Biplanes is at 425 Manor Dr ive, Merritt Island. For information, call (321) 392-4122 or e-mail info@floridabiplanes.com.

16SOUTH Brevard CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 11 Gifts golfers will enjoy Happy holidays! Just in case y ou are stumped on what to get that special golfer on y our holiday gift list, I have a few suggestions. P utters have become an art form, and no one is better at creating a putter that is also a piece of art than Br uce Sizemore. His latest line is a collaboration with Super Stroke (www.superstrokeusa.com), the company with the oversize grips that K.J. Choi has used with much success. The Diamond Cut Finish line features four new models, with two mallets on the way. The putter was designed to work in concert with the S uper Stroke grips. The result is a beautiful putter that performs even better than it looks. You can even custom build your own right on the website for an even more perfect fit. If y ou know someone who’s not swing the club as fast as they used to, or simply want something lighter, faster and ultimately longer in their hands, try Tour Edge's (www.touredge.com) new Bazooka HT Max-D drivers and fairway woods. The new HT Max D line features an aerodynamic design and lighter, longer shaft that helps generate faster club head speed for longer shots. The deep face, huge sweet spot and advanced weighting technology combine to deliver explosive power and accuracy. B est of all, the driver retails for under $150 and the fairways under $120 and come with Tour Edge’s lifetime warranty and a 30-day performance guarantee. If y our golfer loves to travel, the D atrek Golf’s (www.datrekgolf.com) three-piece travel set may be the perfect gift. The set includes a golf bag travel cover with wheels, a duffle bag and a shoe bag for under $100. The travel cover features lots of padding and extra pockets and also GOLFJAMES STAMMER See G OLF, 18 books, even clothes for my trendy wife can be found in businesses owned by those who live among us. Su re I might pay a little more, but that extra coin will stay in my community, not be shipped off to some corporate headquarters up north. And by purchasing local, you get hometown service. It's nice to be able to pick up the phone and get an actual person on the line or walk into a place and talk to the same person who sold y ou an item. H oliday dinners and parties? Local r estaurants only. There's something to be said about walking into a place where everyone knows your name." N ot that all locally owned businesses are perfect. Many of them are owned by people who have never been in business for themselves before. But because they dreamed and dared, I think we can cut them a little slack while they work out the kinks. If we stick with them now, think of the gratitude they will show us later. I hope you will join me in patronizing locally owned businesses this holiday season. Because it's not just business, it's personal. S teve Erlanger is publisher and chief operations officer for H ometown N ews.ErlangerF rom page 14 CIGARETTEDEPOT2595 W.

17SOUTH Brevard CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 11 Hello, smart shoppers. Let's make an amazing Christmas appetizer. F or as far back as I can remember, artichokes were one of my favorite foods. If you've never had an artichoke, there's no time like Christmas to try one. It's not something served at many tables and they can be expensive, but it is a gourmet treat you must try. Artichokes are nutrient-dense and high in fiber. If you're having a small intimate dinner, nothing can compare to stuffed artichokes. The ways I remember eating artichokes are stuffed, marinated or with oil and garlic. Every recipe I've ever r ead has you dipping the leaves in either butter or hollandaise sauce. Ma y onnaise and aioli are other popular choices. I think that if asked what one of my favorite things to do is, I would have to say teaching a little child how to eat an artichoke. Tr ivial? No. Sheer joy! If yo u' ve never eaten one, come along with me and we'll learn how. The base, or heart, of the artichoke is the part you want to eat. Every time y ou pull a leaf off the base, it has a little piece of the delicious heart clinging to it. You do not eat the whole leaf; you put it between your teeth and then pull the leaf out, catching the pillow of flesh with your teeth. When my granddaughter, Meagan, was 2, she watched her daddy, Steve, eat an artichoke and reached out for it. When I asked her if she wanted to try one, she shook her head yes. How do y ou explain to a 2 year old that “bite down” does not mean hang on for dear life? She clamped her teeth down on that leaf as I struggled to pull it out of her mouth. Once she got a taste of the delicious flesh, though, she quickly learned the proper technique. Once all of the leaves have been pulled off and enjoyed, you are left with the “choke” and the heart. You never want to learn what the “choke” in artichoke really means. The inedible florets in the center of the vegetable will most definitely make you choke and must be removed. Getting to the artichoke heart is like getting to the prize at the bottom of a cereal box. It is superb and can be eaten out of hand or used in many dishes. You can also peel the stem, slice and cook it with the artichokes. Enjoy, see you next week! STU STU F F F F E E D AR D AR TI TI C C H H O O KE KE S S S S E E R R VE VE S 4 S 4 4 large artichokes 3 cups soft bread crumbs, (four slices of bread) 1 tbsp. parsley flakes or few sprigs chopped Italian parsley 1/2 tsp. each, dried oregano and salt 1/4 tsp. black pepper 1/4 lb. fresh mushrooms, chopped (optional) 4 cloves garlic, chopped 1/3 cup grated, imported Parmesan cheese 1/2 cup lightly toasted pine nuts, coarsely chopped Extra virgin olive oil Dr y white wine, such as chablis or Chardonnay Pr epare artichokes by cutting the stem end even with the bottom. Break off small leaves at the bottom and snip off tips of the leaves. Smash top down on cutting board to loosen leaves. P lace in cold water to which you have added 1 tablespoon lemon juice for 15 minutes. Rinse, drain and pull open as much as possible. Place upright in a large pot with 1-inch water and a little lemon juice. Co ver, bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes. While the artichokes won't be fully cooked they will be easier to stuff. When cool enough to handle using a small knife or grapefruit knife spread leaves and cut down into center to remove the inedible choke (fuzzy stuff).

20SOUTH Brevard CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 11 Gift wrapping tricks and tips The holidays are here and that means shoppers have started to stockpile gifts for those they love. Once the shopping rush is ov er, the time to wrap all of those great finds and treasures has come. Although some people are gift-wrap gurus, there are many others who feel that their wrapping skills are lacking. Regardless, anyone can create delightful wrapped gifts with a little know-how. Pr epare The first step to wrapping is to have all of the supplies in one place. There are some people who have actually dedicated small r ooms as gift-wrap stations. While you don't have to go this far, find a large table and keep your tape, tags, paper, ribbon, scissor, pen, and other accessories nearby. Also, sort out the gifts according to recipient and have any gift receipts handy to wrap up with the gift. Wr ap at a time when there are no distractions and you can devote your attention to the task at hand, like after children have gone to bed or during the day when no one is home. P aper or bags? When purchasing wrapping paper, it may be tempting to skimp on the quality of the paper to save money. However, a thicker, higher quality paper will make wrapping go more smoothly. That's because it will be less likely to tear on boxes or when you're rolling out and cutting it. Thicker paper means you'll also be able to achieve more intricate folds and better creasing around boxes. It also may be more forgivable around oddly shaped items. G ift bags are the go-to wrapping medium when you're short on time or have items that are not easily wrapped with paper. Because they come in a variety of sizes and even giant plastic bags to contain large gifts they are often more convenient. O ther tips There are different tips that can help with wrapping. Buy neutral-patterned wrapping paper that coordinates with other papers. This way if you run out of one type of paper you can stagger other pieces and make a collage ofF or Hometown NewsnewsML@hometownnewsol.com See WRAPPING, 24 Mon.-Sat.1 1am-10pm ______Sunday 1 1am-9pm € BESTINBREVARD€ Book Your Private Party € Best Margaritas in Brevard€ Dine In or Take Out € Gift Certificates Available € BESTINBREVARD€ Book Your Private Party € Best Margaritas in Brevard€ Dine In or Take Out € Gift Certificates Available Happy Hour Everyday 2~4~1 Margaritas &Drafts729-83381901 Palm Bay Rd(Just E. of Babcock)Palm BayBest Mexican North of the Border 679570 685821 Full grooming services for dogs or cats, ranging from just nail clippings to a full style, are available to all our clients.Canine Designs F 1270 N.

After all, your pet could use some of the same gifts as the rest of us: A nice cushiony pillow, a basket of snack treats, or a nice shampoo set. And just as you can order specially made gifts baskets for friends and family, you can create custom-made packages for pets. In fact, there is a multitude of gifts that you can give to friends and loved ones who own pets. At Double R Country Store in Palm Bay, a wide array of holiday gift ideas for pets and their owners is on display. J ust a brief stroll through Double R Country S tore reveals a host of gift ideas that you might not have thought of that will enhance a pets' comfort and health. D id you know that pets, especially older ones, can develop arthritis and other age-related ailments that can be eased with a simple gift idea? Double R Country Store offers cushioned pillows for older pets, for example. Also, pets can benefit from a suspended bed because they will not suffer the pain that comes from lying on a hard, tiled floor. B ut that is just one health-related idea on display for pets, whether they are puppies, kittens or birds. Owner Michelle Rogers, who has operated her pet shop for more than 15 years, said that just like any specialty shop, Double R Country S tore can customize a holiday basket for your pet. "W e can customize gift baskets of any size for any kind of pet," Ms. Rogers said. "You could do food and treats and toys. It depends on how elaborate you want to get.

22SOUTH Brevard CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 11 Finding a perfect gift for the person who has everything H oliday shoppers know all too well about the endless and often exhausting search for the perfect holiday gift. Such a search most often surrounds that one stickler on everyone's holiday shopping list, the person who seemingly has it all and annually proves puzzling to shop for. While the popularity of online retailers has helped frazzled shoppers avoid long lines at the mall and crowded parking lots, it's still hard to find the perfect gift for that enigmatic friend or family member. This holiday season, consider the following tips to make even the most difficult person on your list a cinch to shop for. Don't overlook cold hard cash. M oney might seem impersonal, but it carries far less of a stigma this year than it has in years past. As the economy continues to struggle, few people are in a position to scoff at a few extra dollars come the holiday season. For the person who has everything already, money might just make the perfect gift.

Creativity is often at the core of the perfect and thoughtful gift. S uch was the case when Jera Deal, a mother of three and a school mother for her daughter Julianna's preschool class, found herself hunting for the ideal gift to give Julianna's teacher for her wedding. Hoping to go beyond the gifts listed in the registry, Deal decided to turn a playful game she and her family enjoyed while walking in the park into a creative gift idea. To aid in their children's alphabet lessons, Jera, her husband, Brad, and their three girls began "letter hunting" on walks in the park, looking for different "letters" in nature (sticks) and architecture (stones).

"I t was a gift from the class, so I knew it had to be really special and really unique, and something that she would never forget where it came from," says Jer a.

25SOUTH Brevard CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 11 Holidays are the time to pay attention to plant safety Hi, everybody. With the holidays getting into full swing, many of us are going to purchase one or more of colorful holiday plants that are available. F or the most part, most of these plants are safe, but some safety precautions should be taken. With some common sense precautions, you can have a safe and happy holiday season. P oinsettia. These colorful holiday plants are safe plants to have around y our home during the holidays. As with any ornamental, they should be kept out of reach of small children and should never be ingested. Although not particularly toxic to humans, they can be very toxic to small animals. If you have pets that have a habit of chewing y our plants, opt for the artificial variety. They can often look just as spectacular as the real thing and you can reuse them year after year. Over time, this can save you a pile of money. M istletoe. Using mistletoe as a decoration is a tradition that has been carried out for centuries. During Pagan times, troops at war who met with the presence of mistletoe were required to lay down their weapons and unite in a day of truce. Mistletoe was also used during rituals that celebrated the winter solstice. It was used as a symbol of the eventual return of the sun. In Christianity, mistletoe has been used as symbol of love ever since the M iddle Ages. During this era, mistletoe was blessed by a priest and all those who walked under it kissed as a sign of friendship and all bad feelings were extinguished. In modern times, the tradition of being kissed under the mistletoe is still in full force. A trip to your local holiday shop will usually yield both live and artificial versions of this popular holiday plant. The “live” mistletoe plant is toxic if ingested and should be kept out of the reach of small children and pets. As long as it is not ingested, this plant can still create a warm feeling of friendship to all who walk under it. Live Christmas trees. Although live trees are the main symbol of this great day, they can pose hazards if not handled and cared for properly. The main hazard from live trees is fire. When you first bring your tree home, be sure to cut a slice off the bottom before placing it in its new location. This will help the tree to absorb water faster, which will greatly lengthen its useful life. There are many products on the market that are labeled as “tree savers” that are useful in helping the tree to absorb water faster and over a longer period of time. It is important when choosing the location for your new tree to place it away from any heat sources or sparks. In the past, using faulty Christmas lights that either shorted out or sparked has caused most treer elated fires. In addition, lights that produce too much heat can be a problem on a tree that has been in use for an extended period of time. T oday, one of the best ways to stay safe is to use the new LED lights that are available for decorating. They look great and besides running cooler than other lights, they also save you green. They use a fraction of the power of conventional lighting methods. U se only UL-approved extension cords and power strips. Using LED lights will not create as much as a load on your extension cords and power adapters. W ith the availability of a large selection of artificial trees, for many people this will be a great alternative to the live tree. Most are now in three pieces with all the lights already attached and they last y ear after year saving you lots of money ov er time. As you can see, with some common sense practices, you can stay safe this holiday season.

Many holiday plants, like holly and poinsettia, contain oils that can be fatal to pets if consumed. Snow globes often contain antifreeze, which is w ell known as toxic to pets. Snow sprays and snow flock contain chemicals that can be irritants if inhaled or consumed. T insel and pine needles can cause choking and intestinal obstruction if consumed by smaller animals, like cats and rodents. D ecorating Dangers D ecorative glassware, trinkets and other breakables can prove hazardous to animals. Inquisitive dogs and cats may break glass ornaments and be cut by shards of glass. It's easy for lit candles to be knocked over and even Christmas trees to be pulled down by boisterous pets.

W est Melbourne police petition to form a unionWEST MELBOURNE Police officers in West Melbourne are forming a union because they are the only nonunionized police department in the county, and because of perceived hostility toward them, their representative said. Tw enty-four officers and four sergeants will vote on whether to unionize, and the process could be completed by January, a union spokesman said. M ike Scudiero, communications director for the Coastal Florida Police B enevolent Association, said officers are seeking to unionize for wage stability and because of recent comments by a city councilman. There has been some rhetoric in the last few months out of City Hall, Mr. Scudiero said. You can only take so much of that before you have to stand up for yourself. The name calling and the semantics have made for a tough working environment for these officers. So they want to have a voice. They want to know their jobs and their futures are protected, Mr. Scudiero said. Mr. Scudiero was referring to published comments by city councilman M ike Hazlett, who referred via e-mails to a city employee as a corrupt, union thug. In advocating spending cuts, the councilman also described the police department as B everly Hills P.D. because of its level of funding.

G ale-force winds across Br evard County led to large spike in yard waste volumes. W aste Management mobilized to remove 1,200 loads of yard waste. The no name storm that smothered Brevard County with as much as 14 inches of r ain and gale-force winds ov er the weekend of Oct. 8-9 left the Space Coast wet and anxious for the return of sunshine, but it also left behind a parting gift: yard waste. A pproximately $11.5 million pounds of palm fronds, tree branches and clippings we re put out for collection after the storm in front of the 175,000 Brevard residences served by Waste Management. W aste Management, which employs 280 people and operates 157 collection vehicles in Brevard County, serves 10 Space Coast cities and the unincorporated county areas. W aste Management crews operated during the storm and returned to work the following Monday to begin collecting the debris from the storm. All of us were relieved for our friends and neighbors that the storm caused little or no damage to homes and businesses, Waste Managements Melbourne district manager Mike Lewis said. B ut we knew wed be busy with yard waste after the wind blew as hard as it did. A dditional equipment and manpower mobilized After assessing the amount of yard waste around the county with Brevard County S olid Waste Department management, Mr. Lewis and Da ve Wallace, Waste Managements Cocoa district manager, decided that additional equipment from Waste M anagements facilities in Orlando and Vero Beach would be needed, along with help from subcontractors operating heavy collection equipment. C ounty management also authorized additional equipment to help expedite the r ecovery. S ome areas, like Palm Bay, had a relatively minor spike in debris volume, Mr. Wallace said, while other areas, particularly our beachside communities and Merritt I sland, saw more than double the normal volume. It took time to get it all off the ground, but our people were outstanding in their efforts. We are thankful to the elected officials and county and city employees who communicated with us throughout, he said. They know their areas well and helped us tremendously by identifying areas that were hit particularly hard. Ho w much is 11.5 million pounds? W aste Management customers in Brevard County put 11.5 million pounds of yard waste out for collection from Oct. 10 through Oct. 31. How much is that? It is equivalent in weight to: 63 space shuttle orbiters 1,150 adult African elephants 40 million iPhone 4S cellular phones W aste Managements re covery effort: 280 employees 159 vehicles 1,100 employee hours 1,200 loads to disposal facilities Ya rd wastes new life The 11.5 million pounds of yard waste will all be either r ecycled or reused, thanks to the efforts of Brevard Countys Solid Waste Department. M ost of the waste is chipped into mulch and sold by a county contractor. Some yard waste is chipped by county employees and used as landfill cover, while the r emainder is shipped to Polk C ounty where it is used as fuel for Wheelabrator Technologys Ridge Generating S tation waste-to-energy plant, which consumes waste wood and tires while providing clean electric energy to almost 29,000 F lorida households. Wheelabrator is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Waste Management. R esidents reminded Br evard County residents are asked to contain or bundle yard waste whenever possible, but to keep bundles or individual cuttings or branches to less than 50 pounds each to make collection safer for Waste Management employees.

F lorida secretary of commerce Gray Swope, president of Enterprise Florida, said Harris expansion demonstrates our states competitive position for attracting and retaining progressive corporations like Harris. W e are pleased that F lorida remains a solid business base for Harris C orp., as demonstrated by its selecting Palm Bay as the site for this innovative hightech center, Mr. Swoope said in a press release Among those attending the announcement were assistant secretary of commerce John Fernandez, r epresentatives of U.S. Sen. B ill Nelson (D-FL), State S en. Mike Haridopolos (RM erritt Island), and other officials. Chad C. Shoultz, deputy city manager of Palm Bay, said the city is uplifted by the announcement of Harri s expansion project. The city of Palm Bay is very excited, Mr. Shoultz said. This is 100 added technical and support positions, plus 300 contractor positions expected to last three years. O n top of that, 1,200 employees will be relocated here, Mr. Shoultz said. I ndeed, Harris will relocate 1,200 employees to its new tech center, which will feature marked upgrades from its current 50-year-old main building on its 200acre campus. The new facility will include a fitness center, along with outdoor paths for biking and walking. Ab ov e all, Harris will provide new jobs in the region at a time they are badly needed. H arris worldwide innov ation will help retain a highly skilled workforce while continuing to mitigate the job loss gap, said L ynda Weatherman, president and CEO of the Economic Development Commission of Floridas Space C oast. B ob Whelen, Harris vice president and chairman of the Economic Development C ommission, said Harris expansion will reach beyond Brevard County. This is an opportunity for us to attract worldclass talent and to establish a world-class engineering center, Mr. Whelen said. Mr. Brown said Brevard C ounty will always be Harri s hub, with spokes that r each worldwide.

From sfgate.com: NY man wearing 'I'm a drunk' shirt accused of DWI A New York man wearing a T -shirt declaring I'm a drunk is facing DWI charges after a collision with a police car. Suffolk County police arrested 23-year-old K evin Daly of Coram. They say he crashed into an officer's vehicle at about 1:45 a.m. Thursday. The officer was treated for minor injuries. Daly, who is unemployed, was wearing the Tshirt in a mug shot provided by police. It reads: "I'm not an alcoholic, I'm a drunk, Alcoholics go to meetings." From japantoday.com: Airline passengers asked for extra cash for fuel Airlines have already begun charging for food, drinks, seat assignments and baggage. Now one is demanding that passengers cough up extra cash on board for fuel. Hundreds of passengers traveling from I ndia to Britain were stranded for six hours in Vienna when their Comtel Air flight stopped for fuel. The charter service asked them to kick in more than 20,000 pounds ($31,000) to fund the rest of the flight to Birmingham, England. Britains Channel 4 news broadcast video showing a Comtel cabin crew member telling passengers: W e need some money to pay the fuel, to pay the airport, to pay everything we need. If you want to go to Bir mingham, you have to pay. Some passengers said they were sent off the plane to cash machines in Vienna to raise the money. We all got together, took our money out of purses pounds ($205), said Reena Rindi, who was aboard with her daughter. If we didnt have the money, they were making us go one by one outside, in Vienna, to get the cash out. The passengers did eventually reach Birmingham, but many expressed anger. From newser.com: C ongress Declares Pizza a V egetable Thanks to Congress, pizza is considered a vegetable at least in school lunches. Pr oposed new school lunch standards from the USDA would have limited potatoes in school lunches (think French fries) and stopped counting less than a halfcup of tomato sauce as a vegetable (think pizza), but food companies complained via $5.6 million worth of lobbying, Talking P oints Memo reports. A spending bill released r ejects those suggestions, ensuring pizza and French fries will continue to be served. Federally-subsidized school meals must contain a certain amount of vegetables, and now pizza, with its two tablespoons of tomato sauce, can continue to be one of those vegetables. The USDAs proposed changes also included limiting sodium and increasing whole grains, the AP reports, meaning that efforts to make lower-sodium, whole grain pizzas will also be delayed. "While it's unfortunate that some members of C ongress continue to put special interests ahead of the health of America's children, USDA remains committed to practical, sciencebased standards for school meals," says a USDA spokesperson.

Editors note: This is a list of arrests,not convictions, and all arrestees are presumed innocent unless or until proven guilty in a court of law. C ouncilman Hazlett did not return calls seeking comment, and calls were also not r eturned by the West Melbourne mayor and city attorney. Mr. Scudiero said suggestions that police officers are monopolizing the citys annual budget are unfortunate. The budget is what the budget is, Mr. Scudiero said. The first job of every government is public safety and public service. The alternative (to not funding a police department) is dissolving your city, Mr. Scudiero said. You can talk about draconian cuts like police and fire. But eventually, you have to look in the mirror and say, Why are we in the city business? Y ou can save the taxpayers money and be dissolved into the county, but I dont think thats what the citizens of West Melbourne want, Mr. Scudiero said. The West Melbourne officers signed petitions submitted to the Florida Public Employees Relation Commission. The rankand-file voted overwhelmingly to seek union r epresentation, Mr. Scudiero said. The union currently represents officers in M elbourne, Cocoa, Rockledge, Titusville and several departments in the Brevard County S heriffs Office. Mr. Scudiero said unionized officers are not necessarily forming to negotiate for higher wages and benefits, but he said cost of living adjustments could be sought in the future. C urrently, police officers earn in the range of $30,000 to start in most departments in the county. Mr. Scudiero said the police union would also seek to modify a wage scale to ensure that long-term employees would earn more than incoming rookie officers. B ut Mr. Scudiero said any wage discussions are in the future. E verybody recognizes the economic realities were in, so were not looking to bankrupt the city. Officers just want to keep what they have, he said. When its time to negotiate every year, if conditions merit, we would seek to have adjustments upward for cost of living. But that is down the line, Mr. Scudiero said.UnionF rom page A1 In the typical AMMYY scam, a caller says he is with the Microsoft Corp. technical support team and has discovered that your computer is infected with a virus. The unsuspecting victim is directed to search his computer programs, where he discovers a location where r ed flag warnings can be seen. The caller says those red flags verify that the victims computer is infected with a virus. B ut red flag warnings are common for anyone who conducts a search of his computer programs. The warnings are not actively hindering the users computer. The caller directs the victim to a website, AMMYY, and guides the victim through computer steps that r esult in a self-inflicted virus. The caller then offers to free the disabled computer from the freshly installed virus for a large credit card fee, of course. Howe ver, the computer is never repaired. The scammers just want the money. In addition, scammers can install spyware or malware in your computers hard drive to obtain vital banking and credit card information if you cooperate with the alleged technician. On the Internet, victims from Australia, Ireland and Scotland recently shared experiences after receiving the AMMYY call. I am in Ireland and I have been contacted a number of times, one potential victim wrote. Each time I hang up. They are very persistent. The computer virus scam is just the latest in a long line of telephone and Internet scams, said Major Michael De Mor at of the Brevard C ounty Sheriffs Office. P eople just have to be very cautious in using their computers, Major DeMorat said. Dont wire or send any money unless you have fully checked people out. N ever give your personal information over the phone or send money. Legitimate businesses dont operate that way. Take the time to do r esearch so you dont become a victim, Major De Mor at said. M icrosoft Corp., for example, does not contact customers by telephone, Major De Mor at said. Dont take what a caller is saying at face value, the major said. There are quite a few scammers out there, and they are very creative in their methods. It seems like every day there is a new scam circulating around. W est Melbourne Police C ommander Steve Wilkinson said local police do not have the resources to track money lost to computer scammers around the world. P ersonal caution is the best way to go, Commander Wi lkinson said. There are millions of those scams out there. I t would be impossible for law enforcement to have the money and time and r esources to run down every single call from around the world. S enior citizens, in particular, should be wary of telephone scammers because seniors are retired and usually near the phone, Commander Wilkinson said. S eniors are targeted because they trust, Commander Wilkinson said. They grew up in a time when you left your house unlocked. C ommander Wilkinson said residents should be suspicion of unsolicited phone calls or emails. B eing suspicious of callers like that is the best prevention, he said. Dont just take the steps they want you to take. They want your credit card number so they can go shopping.ScamF rom page A1

Ha ve your read your condo documents lately or at all? It doesnt really matter as most of the board hasnt either, but they will interpret the rules as they see fit. Ha ve you attended the Space Coast condo Association (meetings)? Ha ve you even been told that these meetings are held the third Saturday of the month and that you are all invited? H as anyone told you about the great speakers full of condo law knowledge who have given up their time to inform you of your rights? They keep you abreast of the new laws as they affect you and your neighbors. It is your property. You have every right to keep the present board if you feel they are representing your concerns. B ut are they? In my condo, our president ask s our legal beagle for advice, and do you know what? He disregards their advice after being billed their rate. Again, we know nothing about this travesty. It s time for a vote. How about when you ask for an accounting of items that money has been spent on and no bill can be found to support the item or no warranty is available. It s time for a vote.P oliticians need to cut their own salaries and perksWhy is it when Washington wants to cut something, it is always things that affect mainly senior citizens: Medicare, M edicaid, Social Security (already no increases for the past two years, while Congress votes themselves a raise); education and some services. If the politicians were truly concerned about the budget, they need to cut their own salaries and perks, starting with the president and on down the political line. Add to the cuts should be foreign aid, especially to countries that hate America. At one time, the White House proposed that the military pay for their own medical and other benefits. The Washington fat cats are getting fatter while the rest of the country scrimps to survive this dour economy. M aybe now the public will wake up to what the present administration has done and is doing to our country and not be so apathetic about voting.F orget the antenna, go online for TVThis is in answer to the rant about the TV and every movie they put on repeats about 10 or 15 times. W ell, my answer is this: Its not about getting an antenna, because they do the same thing, which is free. B ut if you go to your computer, if you punch up (Google.com?) and a couple of other stations, you can get thousands of movies with little, or no, commercials and thousands of TV shows that are better than they are putting on TV. Im tired of it, too.Saving my dogsI would like to thank the young man who helped save the lives of my two dogs. It s ironic. I had just read in H ometown News about people r iding with their dogs in their laps. I had never done this before, but for some reason this evening I had my window down and I let my beagle on my lap. As I was turning a corner, he fell out. I freaked. I stopped my car, put on my flashers and, in my haste and being so scared, I left my door open; and my other dog jumped out of the car. This young man, who was behind me, helped me get my dogs. My dogs were terrified. They didnt take off running. They just stood there. He helped me to gather my dogs back into my car and told me to drive safely. I just wanted to thank him for helping me. I have learned a very valuable lesson.Drop Saturday delivery?I nstead of closing some post offices, why dont they just stop delivering mail on Saturday?Get the story straightI had an incident because I am disabled. I lose my balance. I fell. Par amedics came and took the information I told them and gave their version (I heard it) to the doctor, and I was brought to the emergency room. That took time that was of essence for me to have to explain to the doctor what he was told by the paramedics was not correct. P lease first responders, public officials, nurses and doctors, please write your notes or remember to use verbatim. Y our version is not the facts. Verbatim is.Bullying children and parentsThis is to address a problem that seems to be getting more and more out of control in our counties, our cities and our country. The bullying issue between children is a very big problem. It also comes from adults. Bullying a child while you are an adult is a moral crime. I wish it was a legal crime. It seems that you can call a minor child any name you want as long as you dont touch or threaten that child. And we wonder where the bullies are being raised from. S ome of their parents are big bullies who dont seem to think that children are not children, and that they can talk to children any way they want. We could stop bullying if we all work together.Get off the phone and drive rightI have a Rant and Rave about people cutting you off while driving, dont even look or anything when they pull out a r un a red light, run a stop sign and could cause an accident. They are on cell phones or texting. What is wrong with people? And you wonder why you have accidents. Y ou are not supposed to be on the phone when you are driving. Get off the phone and drive. Pull over.Signing autographsI was just wondering why you guys would put a picture of a professional surfer signing the chest on a 15-year-old girl. There is a little inappropriateness there. Its a nice big picture right next to the Rant & Rave line. So thanks for the picture, and I hope you guys do something about it in next weeks paper.To heck with the little guyAll those protests against Wall Street is not doing any good. Look at the price of oil. It is almost $100 a barrel. There is no big demand for gas, but those people dont care. And eventually the prices will have to go up at the gas pump because those people are stockpiling it. Now, this is unfair. The common people are getting the brunt of it all. Those people just want to make more money and more money and to heck with the little guy. Im tired of it. There is going to be a big revolt in this country if they dont back off.Moving the rainwater letterI was just reading the H ometown News in Rants and Raves about moving the rainwater to the desert. A bout three months ago, I wrote to President Obama when we had all the floodwater from the Mississippi and the C olorado rivers and all that. And my suggestion was: Take all the dikes and aqueducts that are already in place and extend them down to Texas where they have the biggest droughts have cost millions and millions of dollars and just follow the rivers, Mississippi, etc., and stage them with their own aqueducts to canals, it would create thousands and thousands of jobs. P ut all new levies in, and instead of using dirt levies, use concrete building a main highway down from the Great Lakes all the way down to the Gulf Coast. Each state would do their own, employing their own guys. And I never heard nothing back, and that was my sons idea. He had to do a project for school. If you look at the Hoover Dam, it produced millions and millions of dollars and produced thousands and thousands of jobs.Kids should be in schoolI just like to mention that Ive noticed a lot of kids younger than 16 or 17 and as young as 10 years old riding their bicycles in groups of around the neighborhood. They are not in school, and I know its not a day off from school. I was just concerned what would you tell them since there are no truant officers. Shouldnt a responsible parent from the neighborhood tell these kids how come they are not in school? Mind your own business holy rollerLet me start out by answering your assumption on me nothaving any belief in the Bible. My religious beliefs are none of your business. If you are such a holy roller, then you must also know the Bible says Thou shall not judge, and dear, thats exactly what you are doing. The Bible also states that a woman is to give her husband sex whenever he wants it. So, how much of the Bible do you follow? Just the parts you agree with? Also, children from a home with a mother and father can be just as damaged as any other family dynamic. I know this for a fact. You are ridiculous to even blame your own brothers being ill on his lifestyle choice. F or you to even dare say that men and women are being punished by disease that they put upon themselves, please, wake up. I think you should examine your morals. And by the way, marriage to some is not a holy union. M ind your business, worry about the things in the world that are actually affecting you. Same-sex marriage is not one of them. Proposed fire fee commentsF irst, I have no complaints about the excellent work done by the police and fire departments. All of my personal exper iences have been handled in a polite, professional manner. How ever, I have extreme reservations about the city council passing measures to create another fee without having it voted on by our residents, who are currently having to cut way back on their personal expenditures. After talking to many knowledgeable people, it is my opinion that creation of a separate fire fee is illegal. I have also been advised that it is most likely that a class action suit will be made to stop the enforcement of this fee. This will cost the city a lot of time and money to fight these actions. This will be a colossal waste of money needed for other essential services. I have been completely unable to find financial savings by going this route, so why is it even being proposed? I have heard hundreds of comments that it is simply a selfish political interest of those council members voted into office by the efforts of police and fire personnel. The expenditures for fire and police protection should r emain as part of the general budget so these expenditures will be in direct competition with all budgeted needs. If additional cuts are required to the budget because of even more cuts in income to the city, then cuts should be considered equally and fire and police protection budgets must be subject to the same type of cuts in the number of people employed and the pay received.We need a new condo boardD id you know it is time to vote a new board?

BUSINESSHearing loss directly linked to loss of actual gray matter in older adultsA multi-disciplinary r esearch team from the U niversity of Pennsylvania, headed by prominent neuro-scientist Dr. Jonathan P eelle, published an article in the Aug. 31 issue of The J ournal of Neuroscience outlining the research methodologies and tools they used to verify this disturbing discovery. This research uncovered a linear correlation between hearing loss and the loss of actual gray matter, within the central auditory cortex of the brains of older adults ov er time. This had what they described as a cascading effect on the entire central nervous system and our ability to solve complex sentences, and higher level r easoning, as these losses progress. U sing functional magnetic r esonance imaging and voxel based morphometry, this team of scientists found that, as the signal being r eceived in the central auditory cortex became more degraded, those neurons associated with identifying and processing the signals into sounds, or meaningful speech recruited, or called upon fewer and fewer of their neighbouring cells. The weaker the signal from the ears becomes, the fewer the number of cells that are stimulated in these critical processing centers of our brains, and the fewer of their neighbours they call upon to analyze these degraded signals, resulting in a further decrease in processing ability overall. The research team was able to make their linear correlations and draw a direct r elationship between the loss in hearing and loss of actual gray matter volume in older adults by studying the organizational structure and relative size of young adults brains with hearing losses similar to those being studied in the older adult group. The shrinkage in volume occurred over time and was not evident in those young adults, or those suffering from recent hearing loss. This research uncovers the specific neural structures involved, how they evolve and shrink over time and provides the anatomical explanation for the results observed in broad based studies of hearing impaired veterans published in the early nineties. The VA studies showed a direct loss in ability to understand speech over time when comparing aided and unaided ears and cases. These earlier VA studies also indicated this same correlation between loss of processing ability and loss of hearing acuity over time. The University of Pennsylv ania study clearly validates the VA work and provides the anatomical explanation for how and why these changes are occurring. The implications of this study are clear. Continuously degraded stimulation of the central auditory processing centers of our brains results, in these centers being able to process fewer and fewer higher order processing tasks. This becomes associated with an actual shrinkage in the volume of brain matter over time, as these unstimulated cells and their neural connections degrade due to atrophy and lack of adequate stimulation. This work also validates what Ive been telling my patients for years. That there are real and serious consequences to our overall health, especially our mental health, from the postponement, or failure to correct, as this study showed, even a moderate Business newsAN NOUNCEMENTS New executive director namedS ome people see art appreciation as a passive activity and luxury that ends wherever the art is housed.

25 full-time employees working for a full week, Ms. Steele said. The MCC freshman spent their morning cleaning up the beaches in Indialantic and Indian Harbour B each, and the sophomores assisted with landscaping, cleaning, painting and childrens activities at partner Catholic schools O ur Lady of Lourdes in M elbourne, Ascension in M elbourne, St. Josephs in P alm Bay and Holy Name of Jesus in Indialantic. In addition, the schools juniors provided maintenance and landscaping at three Melbourne-based Genesis House locations, while the seniors reached out to senior citizens by leading various recreational activities at Trinity Towers in Melbourne, The F ountains in Palm Bay, Sar ah Care in Melbourne and other senior communities across the Space C oast. The concept for this project was to allow students to link the idea of giving back to the community to what it says in the B ible, then apply those teachings with first-hand experience here in the community, Ms. Steele said. Weve gotten some amazing feedback so far, and we hope to make this an annual event. D espite hours of manual labor, MCC junior Laura Kir kman, 16, of Satellite B each seemed pleased with the various projects she and her classmates completed Wednesday at Genesis House No. 1 in M elbourne, which serves as a transitional housing shelter for homeless women and their children. T ogether the three houses, which also shelter student mothers with children and homeless pregnant women, have a total of 45 beds. Fr om sanitizing playground equipment and spray-painting patio furniture to raking leaves and landscaping the facilitys exterior, the students performed activities many had never done before. I think its really awesome that our whole school came together and took a day out to give back to our community, Laura said. I hope our work will help make the place cleaner and safer for the residents here. O ur work today will hopefully inspire some of us to volunteer and give back to our community in the future, added junior K aty Hammond, 16, of M elbourne. Ma ry Allen, founder and president of the Genesis H ouse board of directors, said she was overjoyed with the inspiring work put forth by such young students. They just were so busy and did such an enthusiastic job, and were really thrilled that (MCC) chose us as one of their nonprofits for this project, Ms. Allen said. And with such a large group like this, their work really made an impact and such significant improvements to our organization. At nearby Trinity Towers, an independent living center for seniors, the same sense of appreciation was also felt. S enior students spent their morning Nov. 16 playing games and doing arts and crafts with more than 30 residents of the facility. There were definitely a few nerves in the beginning, but it didnt take long for everyone to open up and enjoy each others company, said Michelle McNeight, 17, of Indian H arbour Beach. I thought it was a great experience seeing our class come together like this. Ive never seen the boys be as gentleman-like and kind as they were today. The feeling seemed to be mutual. I think its the most wonderful thing these kids coming out, said Tr inity Towers resident Mar ia Combs, while designing a Christmas card for her granddaughter, alongside several students. I hope they come again soon. F ollowing their day of service, all MCC students r eturned to campus where they attended a mass, highlighting the importance of giving back to the community. T his day was an example of how our faculty and staff are modeling church teachings by participating and leading MCC students in this day of service for others, President Burke said, in an email Wednesday. I am so proud of our MCC family. This is the day that not only do we talk to walk, but we walk the walk.

the late 1950s, created the event as a way to bring the community closer during the holiday season and raise funds to help its many charitable organizations. In addition to providing a unique event for the Brevard C ounty community, Space C oast LightFest also helps fill local food banks, such as the S outh Brevard Sharing Center and the Salvation Army. Each year, guests who bring at least two canned goods per vehicle to the event will re ceive $2 off their admission cost. Last year, we collected four tons of food, Mr. Roach said. Being able to contribute so much really encouraged us to bring the event back again this year. Any leftover proceeds from this years LightFest will be donated to such Brevard organizations as AMIkids, H abitat for Humanity, the Salv ation Army and Devereux F lorida, which provides behavioral health, intellectual and child welfare services to children. Also, on Dec. 7, 8, 14, 15, 21, 22 and 23, Eau Gallie Rotary will be offering a hayride that will travel through the park and spectacular light display. C ost is $5 per person or $15 for families of three or more, and children younger than 2 are free. The Space Coast LightFest is one of Eau Gallie Rotary Clubs largest fundraisers and takes nearly two months of preparation and dozens of volunteers to become a reality. I t s a huge undertaking, but, it continues to be worthwhile, Mr. Roach said. S pace Coast LightFest will r un nightly through Friday, De c. 30 from 6-9:30 p.m. C ost is $10 per car or $8 with two or more canned food items.

We welcome your opinions Holy Trinity Provides Food, Hope For the HolidaysF or the average family household, a 30-gallon Rubbermaid container serves as a laundry basket or a repository for holiday decorations. But for over 60 families in the Brevard area, the storage container is filled with blessed fixings for a holiday meal, and hope. Every year, the students, faculty and staff at Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy collect thousands of pounds of food to fill 60-plus food baskets for families in need. The baskets, which are actually large storage containers, are packed with holiday meal items (such as sweet potatoes, dinner rolls, and pumpkin pie filling) as well as common pantry staples (canned tuna, rice, and macaroni and cheese). They are festively decorated by the students and are individually b lessed in a chapel service before Thanksgiving. One co-chair at the Lower School says that it is extremely rewarding for the children to see the baskets come together and hear a little about the families who will benefit from them. The families are identified through a local church and The Dorcas Outreach Center for Kids, w hich is a natural fit, as the Honor Society and other Upper School students regularly volunteer there. This Thanksgiving prog ram has been a tradition at Holy Trinity for a quarter century. In fact, theres a popular story thats regularly shared amongst the participating parents at the Lower School that illustrates this fact. Its about a Holy Trinity parent who came into contact with a man whose family had been a recipient of a bask et when he was a child.

This is our very popular holiday concert, she said. O ur musicians love performing at this time of year and our audience is never disappointed. Everyone is always in a festive mood and concert-goers are delighted to hear all that beautiful music that only comes around once a y ear. Christmas and Chanukah favorites are on tap when the Markstein Q uartet: Igor and Joan Mar kstein, Joani Roos and Linda Utz, return to the M erritt Island Public Library Dec. 8 at 7 p.m. I gor Markstein is the Space C oast Symphonys concert master.

The Space C oast Symphony, with hundreds of singers from churches and choruses, will come together at St. J ohn the Evangelist C atholic Church. Joy ce Wilden, an alto who sings at the event, said its a special program. As a singer, theres nothing better than performing H andels Messiah, especially with the talented musicians from the Space C oast Symphony. Last year, there were hundreds of singers. Some churches even bused in their choirs. The result was an absolutely exhilarating experience for singers and audience members alike. The Brevard Community Chorus takes the stage De c. 10 for A Heartfelt H oliday concert. The event, at the King Center for the Performing Arts, features favorites by John R utter and the Brevard Childrens chorus. D avid Vogeding, conductor of the Brevard C ommunity Chorus, said that theres a little something for everyone in the program. W e will be singing some of the most gorgeous Christmas music ever written, he said. There is a little something for everybody, and were delighted to be joined again onstage by the talented young singers of the Brevard Childrens Chorus.

When most people think about golf at W alt Disney World, they think of the Palm and M agnolia Courses where the PGA Tour plays the last official event on its calendar each year. Some of us, however, are old enough to r emember when the tour also played at Disneys Lake B uena Vista Course. The PGA Tour last used the Lake Buena Vista Course during the Disney Classic in 1997. The tour may have left, but for me, the Lake Buena V ista Course is my favorite on the property. Its not long by any means. In fact, you can still see some of the very back tees the tour added to lengthen the course enough to challenge the top professionals. What Lake Buena Vista lacks in length, it makes up for with challenging greens, tree-lined fairways, lots of bunkers and some of the most beautiful trees and fauna on any of the Disney tracks. D esigned by Joe Lee, it has four sets of tees, playing to a par of 72 for the men and 73 for the ladies. The very back tees play to a couple of yards over 6,800. The forward tees come in at just over 5,200 yards. The course starts you off with a par-5 that should allow you to get your round going early. While its not a long hole at 514 yards from the back tees, it is fraught with danger should you hit the ball left and into the water. The front nine wanders its way through pastel vacation villas and past a lighthouse. The short par-3 seventh features an island green. Its by no means as intimidating as the one at Sawgrass, but its still a tough shot with the wind blowing. H oles eight and nine are the No. 1 and No. 5 toughest holes on the course. The par-5 eighth will test you on y our second shot as the woods encroach from both sides the closer you get to the green. The back nine features dense woods surrounding the course. At one point, y ou will tee off over a canal as a Disney boat meanders by. The 16th is the longest par-3 on the course, coming in at 200 yards from the back tees. The 17th is the longest of the par-5s and plays alongside the Treehouse Villas that are some of the most popular vacation accommodations at the r esort. E ighteen is a stout par 4 that measures well over 400 yards. The hole rewards the daring golfer who can play a tee shot from left to right with a shorter approach. This may come in handy as y ou have to hit a narrow green surrounded by bunkers and trees. There is a great variety of holes at the course. The par4s vary in length from just ov er 300 yards to nearly 450 yards. There are par-5s that are reachable with a pair of solid shots, and one that will r uin a good day if you take it too lightly. This course challenges y our strength of muscle and mind. The greens are small, elevated and well-bunkered, demanding accurate shotmaking. You will use not only every club in your bag, but also every type of shot in your arsenal. Best of all, y ou get to do it while surrounded by the magic of D isney. You can schedule y our round by calling (407) WDW-GOLF. No day of golf would be complete without experiencing two more of my favorite things, food and great sports on television. After my round of golf, I headed just up the street to B uffalo Wild Wings (www.BuffaloWildWings.co m) for some wings, beer and college football. The beer was cold, the wings were hot and tasty, and I had every game imaginable to choose from. Ne ver mind the recipe for a perfect Thanksgiving turkey; I have found the one for a perfect Saturday.

All of our pilots hold airline transport pilot certificates and most currently fly as major airline captains, he said. With an average of more than 15,000 hours of flight experience each, guests are sure to feel safe and comfortable. Mr. Grainger himself began his career in aviation at age 13, working as a ground crew member at a small airpark in Vir ginia. He has since flown everything from hang gliders, sailplanes, crop dusters and banner planes to commuters, charters, airlines and fighter jets. As an airline pilot, Ive worked a lot of different side businesses for years and y ears, he said. I realized it was finally time to do something on the side thats fun for more than just me.

T oday, photographs can be brought to life in a way that was never imagined. At Michaels, a well-known arts and crafts shop in West Melbourne, one of the hottest holiday gifts this season is a photo creations program that enables families to do more with photographs than ever before. While shoppers may be lining up for an Xbox 360 game system, a bigscreen TV in 3-D, or an Apple iPad tablet computer, there are still some gifts that retain their relevance over time. At Michaels, located in Hammock Landing mall, a new computer program enables users to transform their photographs by enhancing them with an endless variety of styles, backgrounds and borders. Beyo nd simply uploading their photos on Facebook, families can transform their photos through photo books, scrapbooks and personalized postcards. Soon, Michael will complete a program that will allow photography buffs to create calendars using their favorite photos. The program even enables users to do basic photo cropping. Da ve Steinleitner, Michaels store manager, said the store has set aside what it calls a memory department. B asically, you can take a photo album and embellish it, Mr. Steinleitner said. Say you went on a v acation to the islands. Here, you can put all kinds of stickers on your photo page. People are doing all kinds of creative things to personalize their photos. There are a lot of things you can add to a memory album, from charms to backgrounds, he said.

I t s a lot different than when you just slid your photos into a magnetic page, Ms. Johnson said. Ms. Johnson said that because of digital photography, fewer people send film to be developed and many of them print their own photos, so the Michaels digital photo program is easy to use.

The wireless e-Book reader has improved contrast so it can be read more easily at the beach, or anywhere portable readers can be taken. Xbox 360 with Kinect.

Because so many people travel during the holidays, airports are more crowded than usual and the nations r oadways often experience heavy traffic, especially on the days immediately before and after a holiday. While theres not much travelers can do to reduce the number of fellow travelers come the holiday season, there are certain dos and donts that can make holiday travel much easier. DO plan ahead. Leaving holiday travel plans until the last minute is a r ecipe for disaster. Some air travelers feel its more affordable to book flights in the weeks leading up to the holidays rather than months in advance. While its possible to find last minute airline deals, its very possible such deals will put travelers on standby. Thats potentially disastrous during a travel season that has frequent flight delays or cancellations due to inclement weather. Book travel plans as early as possible to avoid the hassles of last minute bookings. DONT blame airport staff if things go awry. The holiday season can be stressful for those who have to travel, but its exceedingly stressful for the men and women who work in the travel industry. Airline employees, particularly those who work at ticket counters, are too often treated poorly by travelers who need someone to blame for flight delays and cancellations. The same goes for the people who work at bus or train stations. R egardless of how inconvenient inter-F or Hometown NewsnewsML@hometownnewsol.com See TRAVEL, See TRAVEL, 13

Its often a result of inclement weather, which is something no one can control. Should travel plans be delayed or cancelled, r emain courteous, compassionate and respectful of staff. Doing so is the right thing to do, and it might just garner you some consideration when the time comes to reschedule plans. DO insure your trip. As mentioned above, flight delays and cancellations are common during the holiday season. Heavy snowfall can wreak havoc on travel plans, even for those people who live in relatively temperate climates. Travelers traveling to or from regions where heavy snowfall is a possibility should always protect themselves against flight cancellations or delays by insuring their trips. Insurance is often inexpensive and can protect travelers if their flight plans go awry. The peace of mind insurance provides can also reduce the stress of holiday travel. DONT try to make up for lost time. While theres little air travelers can do to make up for lost time, those traveling by automobile often try to make up for lost time by driving aggressively. Nothing could be more dangerous, as the roads are often overcrowded and driving conditions during the holidays are rar ely ideal. Even if a traffic jam or other delay makes it impossible to stick to your travel schedule, dont r isk disaster with aggressive driving. I nstead, call your destination and explain you will be a little late because of delays on the roadway. No matter where you are going, be it a hotel or to a friend or family members house, they will understand the situation and they will certainly prefer you get there safe and sound, even if that means getting there a little later than originally planned. DO be an early bird. The early bird gets the worm, and when it comes to holiday travel, the early bird can also significantly reduce the stress of traveling. If traveling by air, get to the airport extra early. This way you wont have to fret when the lines at baggage check or security checkpoints are long. If traveling via automobile, get up early and hit the r oad before most drivers are even out of bed. It might not be fun to get up so early, but you will likely start y our trip off with little to no traffic. DONT overdo it. Its tempting to try to see everyone during the holiday season, but most travelers would prefer to stay in one place for more time than to continue traveling from place to place without spending much time at any one place. Traveling too much can lead to exhaustion, which is especially dangerous for those traveling by automobile. If possible, spread out holiday travel as much as you can, and attempt to spend at least two nights sleeping in the same bed before hitting the road again. H oliday travel doesnt have to be so difficult. Adhering to a few dos and donts can make this years holiday travel far less stressful. Arriving early at the airport during the holiday season is one way to reduce the stress of travel during one of the busiest travel seasons of the year. metrocreativeconnection.com

14NOR TH Brevard CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 1 Ma ke y our holiday shopping personal Icannot tell you how many times I have seen a small business open up in my community, say to myself, Oh, thats great, Ill have to get in there, and then drive by months later and realize that I have y et to make that first stop to see what this new venture is all about. This frustrates me. My intentions are good. And maybe if I had seen var ious advertisements reminding me about the place, I would have made that visit. The best part is when its locally o wned; its not just a business, but a person possibly a neighbor or someone I know from the gym or the park or school events. Its personal. I think of the excitement they must have had when first getting the idea for the business, putting it together and actually seeing it take shape. Then, as the excitement slowly fades and the reality of success or failure is in plain view, the realization of such a brave move takes hold. It is all of our responsibility to help our local business people succeed. It is the core of a community. The lifeblood. Without our local business partners, we would be left with only the large national chains with no ties to our community, only looking to take our money and run when times get rough. So this holiday season, I have made a pact with myself to purchase everything I possibly can from local purveyors. Bikes, music, wine, gourmet food, books, even clothes for my trendy wife can be found in businesses owned by those who live among us. Su re, I might pay a little more, but that extra coin will stay in my community, not be shipped off to some corporate headquarters up north. And by purchasing local, you get hometown service. Its nice to be able to pick up the phone and get an actual person on the line or walk into a place and talk to the same person who sold you an item. H oliday dinners and parties? Local r estaurants only. Theres something to be said about walking into a place where everyone knows your name. N ot that all locally owned businesses are perfect. Many of them are o wned by people who have never been in business for themselves before. But because they dreamed and dared, I think we can cut them a little slack while they work out the kinks. If we stick with them now, think of the gratitude they will show us later. I hope you will join me in patronizing locally owned businesses this holiday season. Because its not just business, its personal. S teve Erlanger is publisher and chief operations officer for H ometown N ews. PUBLISHERSTEVE ERLANGER So, this holiday season, I have made a pact with myself to purchase everything I possibly can from local purveyors.

Happy holidays! Just in case y ou are stumped on what to get that special golfer on y our holiday gift list, I have a few suggestions. P utters have become an art form, and no one is better at creating a putter that is also a piece of art than Br uce Sizemore. His latest line is a collaboration with Super Stroke (www.superstrokeusa.com), the company with the oversize grips that K.J. Choi has used with much success. The Diamond Cut Finish line features four new models, with two mallets on the way. The putter was designed to work in concert with the S uper Stroke grips. The result is a beautiful putter that performs even better than it looks. You can even custom build your own right on the w ebsite for an even more perfect fit. If you know someone whos not swing the club as fast as they used to, or simply want something lighter, faster and ultimately longer in their hands, try Tour Edges (www.touredge.com) new Bazooka HT Max-D drivers and fairway woods. The new HT Max D line features an aerodynamic design and lighter, longer shaft that helps generate faster club head speed for longer shots. The deep face, huge sweet spot and advanced weighting technology combine to deliver explosive power and accuracy. B est of all, the driver retails for under $150 and the fairways under $120 and come with Tour Edges lifetime warranty and a 30-day performance guarantee. If yo ur golfer loves to travel, the D atrek Golfs (www.datrekgolf.com) three-piece travel set may be the perfect gift. The set includes a golf bag travel cover with wheels, a duffle bag and a shoe bag for under $100. The travel cover features lots of padding and extra pockets and also has in-line skate wheels for a smooth, easy roll. The duffle bag is just the r ight size for a carry-on. Ev ery golfer could use some practice. Improving you putting is the quickest way to lower your score. Fan M ats and Tour Links (www.TourLinks.net) has combined the logo from your favorite professional team, or college or military branch into its new line of putting greens. These greens feature club speed turf with adjustable breaks and two r egulation cups and pins. The 4-foot by 10-foot green is ready for use in any indoor or outdoor space. Molded from high impact polymers, the patented design makes installation a snap. K angarila (www.kangarila.com) is a new way of playing golf that will add an extra level of fun or frustration to y our game. In this game the balls act as dice. The balls are printed with the names of different clubs such as wedge or -iron. You tee off and hit y our Kangarila golf ball. When you arrive at the ball, the side facing up will tell you which club you must use for your next shot. I ts a great way to add some fun and improve on your shot-making skills. Y ou can even just choose one or two holes each round where you play the K angarila balls. While we dont experience snow and seldom see freezing temperatures for any extended period of time, we F loridians still need jackets and sweaters. A bacus Apparel (www.abacusoutdoor.com) is the company that outfitted the European Solheim Cup team. Its new pebble fleece jacket is perfect for those cool days that we see in the winter here. The soft, warm polyester fleece features a full-length front zipper and flat-lock seams that allow you to stay warm and unrestricted while swinging. The newest apparel from Sunice (www.sunice.com), outfitter to the U.S. Solheim Cup team, is its T yphoon Collection. The company has added the benefit of full-stretch to this line. Now in addition to a breathable, lightweight, quieter performance fabric, you get the benefit of a garment that stretches with you while keeping the wind and rain away. B ooks are another great gift idea. S tuart resident Judy Alvarez is a world r enowned golf instructor and Golf D igest Florida top 15 teacher. She has trained PGA and LPGA professionals, conducted seminars, clinics and more. H er new book Broken Tees and M ended Hearts is an inspirational r ead. In the book she talks of her experiences working as an instructor for veterans and civilians with disabilities. It is available at most book stores, golf shops and through her website at www.JudyAlvarez.com. F inally, there is always a gift certificate for a round of golf or even a cap or shirt from their favorite course. Some of the more famous courses in the country will even ship hats and shirts to you if you call them and place an order with your credit card. Whatever you decide Im sure the golfer on your list will love the thought that went into it. Just be sure to avoid the topless lady tees!

3SOUTH Brevard CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 1 At holidays, hot gifts mix with old favorites In the past, family photographs were tucked away between transparent sheets and kept in a yellowing scrapbook. T oday, photographs can be brought to life in a way that was never imagined. At Michaels, a well-known arts and crafts shop in West Melbourne, one of the hottest holiday gifts this season is a photo creations program that enables families to do more with photographs than ever before. While shoppers may be lining up for an Xbox 360 game system, a big-screen TV in 3-D, or an Apple iPad tablet computer, there are still some gifts that r etain their relevance over time. At Michaels, located in Hammock Landing mall, a new computer program enables users to transform their photographs by enhancing them with an endless variety of styles, backgrounds and borders. Beyond simply uploading their photos on Facebook, families can transform their photos through photo books, scrapbooks and personalized postcards. Soon, Michael will complete a program that will allow photography buffs to create calendars using their favorite photos. The program even enables users to do basic photo cropping. Da ve Steinleitner, Michaels store manager, said the store has set aside what it calls a memory department. B asically, you can take a photo album and embellish it, Mr. Steinleitner said.

The MiDesign program includes more than 9,000 embellishments and contains more than 2,000 backgrounds. The program offers customized themes that can be pre-selected, or y ou can start with a blank canvas to construct y our own theme. Mr. Steinleitner said families can send out personalized Christmas cards this season, using the MiDesign program. Y ou can change bordering, put different backgrounds on it, Mr. Steinleitner said. You can do it all on line. The system is user-friendly. P at Johnson, Michaels customer experience manager, said photographic scrapbooking is one of the biggest-selling things. I t s a lot different than when you just slid y our photos into a magnetic page, Ms. J ohnson said. Ms. Johnson said that because of digital photography, fewer people send film to be developed and many of them print their own photos, so the Michaels digital photo program is easy to use. Among other popular gifts of the season: Amazon Kindle. Amazons latest version of its e-Book reader can download and store up to 3,500 books, newspapers, magazines, blogs and other digital media. The wireless e-Book reader has improved contrast so it can be read more easily at the beach, or anywhere portable r eaders can be taken. Xbox 360 with Kinect. Game lovers will find more to do than ever with Xbox 360 with the K inect feature that puts gamers virtually into their TV systems, controlling an avatar. Kinect enables users to control and interact with the Xbox 360 without touching a game controller. Apple iPad. Are personal desktop and laptop computers becoming obsolete? It seems that way with tablet computers such as Apple iPad, the wafer-thin hand-held system. With increased speed and super-fast graphics, Wi-Fi connects at the touch of a screen to launch books, magazines, movies, music, games, and w eb content. Espresso machine. As in the past, you cant go wrong with a piping hot cup of coffee. A new pet. Another old-school gift that lasts is an addition to an animal lovers stable. Pet lovers love to exercise their maternal instinct.F avoritesF rom page 3By Meagan McGonemmcgone@hometownnewsol.com See H EALTH, 18 See FAVOR ITES, 27 Tr ek Holiday EventNovember 18th throughDecember 31st ACCESSORIES UP TO50% OFFBIKES UP TO40% OFF 510 East Eau Gallie Blvd. Indian Harbour Beach,Fl 32937 (321) 773-2093V isit Beach Bicycles on 5th Ave. in Indialantic for more amazing deals!

14SOUTH Brevard CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 1 Ma ke y our holiday shopping personal Icannot tell you how many times I have seen a small business open up in my community, say to myself, Oh, thats great, Ill have to get in there, and then drive by months later and realize that I have yet to make that first stop to see what this new venture is all about. This frustrates me. My intentions are good. And maybe if I had seen various advertisements reminding me about the place, I would have made that visit. The best part is when its locally o wned; its not just a business, but a person possibly a neighbor or someone I know from the gym or the park or school events. It s personal. I think of the excitement they must have had when first getting the idea for the business, putting it together and actually seeing it take shape. Then, as the excitement slowly fades and the r eality of success or failure is in plain view, the realization of such a brave move takes hold. It is all of our responsibility to help our local business people succeed. It is the core of a community. The lifeblood. W ithout our local business partners, we would be left with only the large national chains with no ties to our community, only looking to take our money and run when times get rough. So this holiday season, I have made a pact with myself to purchase everything I possibly can from local purveyors. Bikes, music, wine, gourmet food, with an experience they will not soon forget. The Waco UPF-7 Biplane he flies once served as a WWII trainer, an aircraft flown by similar scenic ride businesses throughout the country. The biplane can accommodate two passengers per flight, in addition to the pilot, and comes equipped with a mounted video camera, so guests can experience their flight for years to come. G uests can experience a heightened view of Brevard landmarks, such as the beaches, Port Canaveral, Kennedy S pace Center, the NASA shuttle r unway, St. Johns waterway basin and more. Prices begin at $75 per person. In addition to escaping some of the stress of the holidays on your own, F lorida Biplane tours make excellent holiday gifts. G ift certificates can be purchased via the website, www.floridabiplanes.com, as well as by calling (321) 392-4122. P urchasing a tour as a gift is not only an experience, its a memory that will never be forgotten, Mr. Grainger said. The person giving the gift can also share it, by coming along. Its a way to bring a little magic to your holiday. F lorida Biplanes is at 425 Manor Dr ive, Merritt Island. For information, call (321) 392-4122 or e-mail info@floridabiplanes.com. H ook the one you love this holiday season with a variety of items and supplies from one of Brevard Countys longest-standing bait shops.

16SOUTH Brevard CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 1 Gifts golfers will enjoy Happy holidays! Just in case y ou are stumped on what to get that special golfer on y our holiday gift list, I have a few suggestions. P utters have become an art form, and no one is better at creating a putter that is also a piece of art than Br uce Sizemore. His latest line is a collaboration with Super Stroke (www.superstrokeusa.com), the company with the oversize grips that K.J. Choi has used with much success. The Diamond Cut Finish line features four new models, with two mallets on the way. The putter was designed to work in concert with the S uper Stroke grips. The result is a beautiful putter that performs even better than it looks. You can even custom build your own right on the website for an even more perfect fit. If you know someone whos not swing the club as fast as they used to, or simply want something lighter, faster and ultimately longer in their hands, try Tour Edges (www.touredge.com) new Bazooka HT Max-D drivers and fairway woods. The new HT Max D line features an aerodynamic design and lighter, longer shaft that helps generate faster club head speed for longer shots. The deep face, huge sweet spot and advanced weighting technology combine to deliver explosive power and accuracy. B est of all, the driver retails for under $150 and the fairways under $120 and come with Tour Edges lifetime warranty and a 30-day performance guarantee. If your golfer loves to travel, the D atrek Golfs (www.datrekgolf.com) three-piece travel set may be the perfect gift. The set includes a golf bag travel cover with wheels, a duffle bag and a shoe bag for under $100. The travel cover features lots of padding and extra pockets and also GOLFJAMES STAMMER See G OLF, 18 books, even clothes for my trendy wife can be found in businesses owned by those who live among us. Su re, I might pay a little more, but that extra coin will stay in my community, not be shipped off to some corporate headquarters up north. And by purchasing local, you get hometown service. Its nice to be able to pick up the phone and get an actual person on the line or walk into a place and talk to the same person who sold y ou an item. H oliday dinners and parties? Local r estaurants only. Theres something to be said about walking into a place where everyone knows your name. N ot that all locally owned businesses are perfect. Many of them are owned by people who have never been in business for themselves before. But because they dreamed and dared, I think we can cut them a little slack while they work out the kinks. If we stick with them now, think of the gratitude they will show us later. I hope you will join me in patronizing locally owned businesses this holiday season. Because its not just business, its personal. S teve Erlanger is publisher and chief operations officer for H ometown N ews.ErlangerF rom page 14 CIGARETTEDEPOT2595 W.

17SOUTH Brevard CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 1 Hello, smart shoppers. Lets make an amazing Christmas appetizer. F or as far back as I can remember, artichokes were one of my favorite foods. If youve never had an artichoke, theres no time like Christmas to try one. Its not something served at many tables and they can be expensive, but it is a gourmet treat you must try. Artichokes are nutrient-dense and high in fiber. If youre having a small intimate dinner, nothing can compare to stuffed artichokes. The ways I remember eating artichokes are stuffed, marinated or with oil and garlic. Every recipe Ive ever r ead has you dipping the leaves in either butter or hollandaise sauce. May onnaise and aioli are other popular choices. I think that if asked what one of my favorite things to do is, I would have to say teaching a little child how to eat an artichoke. Tr ivial? No. Sheer joy! If yo u ve never eaten one, come along with me and well learn how. The base, or heart, of the artichoke is the part you want to eat. Every time y ou pull a leaf off the base, it has a little piece of the delicious heart clinging to it. You do not eat the whole leaf; you put it between your teeth and then pull the leaf out, catching the pillow of flesh with your teeth. When my granddaughter, Meagan, was 2, she watched her daddy, Steve, eat an artichoke and reached out for it. When I asked her if she wanted to try one, she shook her head yes. How do y ou explain to a 2 year old that bite down does not mean hang on for dear life? She clamped her teeth down on that leaf as I struggled to pull it out of her mouth. Once she got a taste of the delicious flesh, though, she quickly learned the proper technique. Once all of the leaves have been pulled off and enjoyed, you are left with the choke and the heart. You never want to learn what the choke in artichoke really means. The inedible florets in the center of the vegetable will most definitely make you choke and must be removed. Getting to the artichoke heart is like getting to the prize at the bottom of a cereal box. It is superb and can be eaten out of hand or used in many dishes. You can also peel the stem, slice and cook it with the artichokes. Enjoy, see you next week! STU STU F F F F E E D AR D AR TI TI C C H H O O KE KE S S S S E E R R VE VE S 4 S 4 4 large artichokes 3 cups soft bread crumbs, (four slices of bread) 1 tbsp. parsley flakes or few sprigs chopped Italian parsley 1/2 tsp. each, dried oregano and salt 1/4 tsp. black pepper 1/4 lb. fresh mushrooms, chopped (optional) 4 cloves garlic, chopped 1/3 cup grated, imported Parmesan cheese 1/2 cup lightly toasted pine nuts, coarsely chopped Extra virgin olive oil Dr y white wine, such as chablis or Chardonnay Pr epare artichokes by cutting the stem end even with the bottom. Break off small leaves at the bottom and snip off tips of the leaves. Smash top down on cutting board to loosen leaves. P lace in cold water to which you have added 1 tablespoon lemon juice for 15 minutes. Rinse, drain and pull open as much as possible. Place upright in a large pot with 1-inch water and a little lemon juice. Co ver, bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes. While the artichokes wont be fully cooked they will be easier to stuff. When cool enough to handle using a small knife or grapefruit knife spread leaves and cut down into center to remove the inedible choke (fuzzy stuff).

Once the shopping rush is ov er, the time to wrap all of those great finds and treasures has come. Although some people are gift-wrap gurus, there are many others who feel that their wrapping skills are lacking. Regardless, anyone can create delightful wrapped gifts with a little know-how. Pr epare The first step to wrapping is to have all of the supplies in one place. There are some people who have actually dedicated small r ooms as gift-wrap stations. While you dont have to go this far, find a large table and keep your tape, tags, paper, ribbon, scissor, pen, and other accessories nearby. Also, sort out the gifts according to recipient and have any gift receipts handy to wrap up with the gift. Wr ap at a time when there are no distractions and you can devote your attention to the task at hand, like after children have gone to bed or during the day when no one is home. P aper or bags? When purchasing wrapping paper, it may be tempting to skimp on the quality of the paper to save money. However, a thicker, higher quality paper will make wrapping go more smoothly. Thats because it will be less likely to tear on boxes or when youre rolling out and cutting it. Thicker paper means youll also be able to achieve more intricate folds and better creasing around boxes. It also may be more forgivable around oddly shaped items. G ift bags are the go-to wrapping medium when youre short on time or have items that are not easily wrapped with paper. Because they come in a variety of sizes and even giant plastic bags to contain large gifts they are often more convenient. O ther tips There are different tips that can help with wrapping. Buy neutral-patterned wrapping paper that coordinates with other papers. This way if you run out of one type of paper you can stagger other pieces and make a collage ofF or Hometown NewsnewsML@hometownnewsol.com See WRAPPING, 24 Mon.-Sat.1 1am-10pm ______Sunday 1 1am-9pm BESTINBREVARD Book Your Private Party Best Margaritas in Brevard Dine In or Take Out Gift Certificates Available BESTINBREVARD Book Your Private Party Best Margaritas in Brevard Dine In or Take Out Gift Certificates Available Happy Hour Everyday 2~4~1 Margaritas &Drafts729-83381901 Palm Bay Rd(Just E. of Babcock)Palm BayBest Mexican North of the Border Full grooming services for dogs or cats, ranging from just nail clippings to a full style, are available to all our clients.Canine Designs F1270 N.

Such a search most often surrounds that one stickler on everyones holiday shopping list, the person who seemingly has it all and annually proves puzzling to shop for. While the popularity of online retailers has helped frazzled shoppers avoid long lines at the mall and crowded parking lots, its still hard to find the perfect gift for that enigmatic friend or family member. This holiday season, consider the following tips to make even the most difficult person on your list a cinch to shop for. Dont overlook cold hard cash. M oney might seem impersonal, but it carries far less of a stigma this year than it has in years past. As the economy continues to struggle, few people are in a position to scoff at a few extra dollars come the holiday season. For the person who has everything already, money might just make the perfect gift. If yo u re reticent to give cold hard cash, consider a gift card to a favorite retailer or even a prepaid gas card that offers some relief at the increasingly pricey pump. Get creative. Creativity is often at the core of the perfect and thoughtful gift. S uch was the case when Jera Deal, a mother of three and a school mother for her daughter Juliannas preschool class, found herself hunting for the ideal gift to give Juliannas teacher for her wedding. Hoping to go beyond the gifts listed in the registry, Deal decided to turn a playful game she and her family enjoyed while walking in the park into a creative gift idea. To aid in their childrens alphabet lessons, Jera, her husband, Brad, and their three girls began letter hunting on walks in the park, looking for different letters in nature (sticks) and architecture (stones).

25SOUTH Brevard CountyHOMETOWN NEWSF riday, November 25, 2011HOLIDAY GIFTGUIDE 1 Holidays are the time to pay attention to plant safety Hi, everybody. With the holidays getting into full swing, many of us are going to purchase one or more of colorful holiday plants that are available. F or the most part, most of these plants are safe, but some safety precautions should be taken. With some common sense precautions, you can have a safe and happy holiday season. P oinsettia. These colorful holiday plants are safe plants to have around y our home during the holidays. As with any ornamental, they should be kept out of reach of small children and should never be ingested. Although not particularly toxic to humans, they can be very toxic to small animals. If you have pets that have a habit of chewing y our plants, opt for the artificial variety. They can often look just as spectacular as the real thing and you can reuse them year after year. Over time, this can save you a pile of money. M istletoe. Using mistletoe as a decoration is a tradition that has been carried out for centuries. During Pagan times, troops at war who met with the presence of mistletoe were required to lay down their weapons and unite in a day of truce. Mistletoe was also used during rituals that celebrated the winter solstice. It was used as a symbol of the eventual return of the sun. In Christianity, mistletoe has been used as symbol of love ever since the M iddle Ages. During this era, mistletoe was blessed by a priest and all those who walked under it kissed as a sign of friendship and all bad feelings were extinguished. In modern times, the tradition of being kissed under the mistletoe is still in full force. A trip to your local holiday shop will usually yield both live and artificial versions of this popular holiday plant. The live mistletoe plant is toxic if ingested and should be kept out of the reach of small children and pets. As long as it is not ingested, this plant can still create a warm feeling of friendship to all who walk under it. Live Christmas trees. Although live trees are the main symbol of this great day, they can pose hazards if not handled and cared for properly. The main hazard from live trees is fire. When you first bring your tree home, be sure to cut a slice off the bottom before placing it in its new location. This will help the tree to absorb water faster, which will greatly lengthen its useful life. There are many products on the market that are labeled as tree savers that are useful in helping the tree to absorb water faster and over a longer period of time. It is important when choosing the location for your new tree to place it away from any heat sources or sparks. In the past, using faulty Christmas lights that either shorted out or sparked has caused most treer elated fires. In addition, lights that produce too much heat can be a problem on a tree that has been in use for an extended period of time. T oday, one of the best ways to stay safe is to use the new LED lights that are available for decorating. They look great and besides running cooler than other lights, they also save you green. They use a fraction of the power of conventional lighting methods. U se only UL-approved extension cords and power strips. Using LED lights will not create as much as a load on your extension cords and power adapters. W ith the availability of a large selection of artificial trees, for many people this will be a great alternative to the live tree. Most are now in three pieces with all the lights already attached and they last y ear after year saving you lots of money ov er time. As you can see, with some common sense practices, you can stay safe this holiday season.

Many holiday plants, like holly and poinsettia, contain oils that can be fatal to pets if consumed. Snow globes often contain antifreeze, which is w ell known as toxic to pets. Snow sprays and snow flock contain chemicals that can be irritants if inhaled or consumed. T insel and pine needles can cause choking and intestinal obstruction if consumed by smaller animals, like cats and rodents. D ecorating Dangers D ecorative glassware, trinkets and other breakables can prove hazardous to animals. Inquisitive dogs and cats may break glass ornaments and be cut by shards of glass. It's easy for lit candles to be knocked over and even Christmas trees to be pulled down by boisterous pets. Water kept in Christmas tree stands and other decor may harbor harmful microorganisms or chemicals that become dangerous if lapped up.

When eating, keep pets out of the dining area and maintain a close eye on scavengers who might leap for dishes at the edges of tables. Gifts, like food baskets and boxes of chocolates, should be kept out of r each of pets. Buy pet-safe treats this time of year to reward animals so they will not be inclined to steal snacks. Holi day Stress H aving a houseful of people can be stressful on pets who are not used to the company. Talk with a veterinarian to see if a mild sedative or anti-anxiety medication might be helpful. Otherwise, keep pets contained in a quiet room away from guests if they are prone to skittishness.
