Generally, they leave Family TaeKwon-Do and F itness Center with acquired discipline and leadership skills, too. Mr. McCarthy took home the T op Martial Arts School Award, an international recognition given to three schools in the U nited States by United Martial Arts, on Nov. 11. He said many factors contributed to winning the award, including the quality of student progress, the number of black belts achieved by students and the 30 years of the centers establishment in the community. F amily TaeKwon-Do and Fitness Center has been running in its location at 3680 N. Wickham R oad since February. It was previously located off of Sarno Road. S tudents have followed Mr. Mc Car thy through the years, with some remaining at the center for 30 years. This school has produced lots of doctors, engineers, attorneys, pastors, he said. Because its been here so long, Ive been able to see what it did. Ive watched these kids grow up and transform. Mr. McCarthy said his current medical doctor has been a student at the center since he was 9 y ears old. He still trains with him today. The school teaches discipline and leadership, he said. Students learn good listening skills, academic skills and how to treat people with respect and courtesy. Ev ery student is taught the same foundation of principles, which include loyalty, courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control and indomitable spirit, he said. The center is unique because it teaches a combination of three forms of defense and martial arts: taekwondo, an art from Kor ea; jujutsu, a Japanese form and American-style boxing. C urrently, 40 black-belt students practice at the school. A black belt in martial arts symbolizes the highest degree of competence, and there are various levels of black belts one can achieve, Mr. McCarthy said. Mr. McCarthy is a grand master in taekwondo and has promoted many of his black belts to the master level.

W ith barely 5 watts of power, he talks to people in England, France, I celand and other countries. Mr. Fisher, a Palm Bay Police officer when hes not hamming it up, recently chatted with an Air C anada pilot who was cruising at 35,000 feet over North America. Mr. Fisher, who has also talked with people in Antarctica, keeps a sort of baseball card collection of the various handles with whom he has communicated around the globe. O ther ham radio operators havent been limited by the bonds of Earth. Many of them have chatted with astronauts aboard the I nternational Space Station. In the modern age of the Internet, mobile phones and worldwide communications systems, the old-fashioned ham radio r emains relevant because it r etains its unique capability. When a 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti, and when a tsunami devastated Japan, ham r adio operators provided authorities with vital communications links, helping to reach victims and save lives. When natural catastrophes strike, they can disable communications towers and electric lines. B ut ham radios operate on air waves. H urricane Katrina knocked down cell-phone towers and radio towers, Mr. Fisher said. Its police departments had no communications because they had lost the r adio towers. On Dec. 3, the National Weather Ser vice on Croton Road will recognize Brevard County ham radio operators for their contributions during weather emergencies. On Dec. 10, the weather service will hold an open house, including a ham radio demonstration. Mr. Fisher, public information officer for the Platinum CoastLand preservation program receives national recognitionA program that serves to protect unique natural habitats in Brevard C ounty received the highest honor that the Natural Areas Association bestows. Br evard Countys Environmentally Endangered Lands Program was awarded the Carl N. Becker S tewardship Award due to its achievements in managing the natural resources of protected areas. The award was presented at a banquet in Tallahassee on Nov. 3. M ike Knight, EEL program manager, said the program has been identified as a national model for implementing a long-term habitat and species preservation program. (It) has been very successful in ensuring that land protection decisions are driven by sound scientific evaluation, he said. The EEL program began in 1990, following a referendum vote by Br evard citizens to pay tax for the acquisition and management of ecologically important lands. Over the last 20 years, the program has protected more than 24,000 acres of wildlife habitats and maintained 62 miles of nature trails, Mr. Knight said. Three environmental education centers are also financially supported through the referendum: the Enchanted Forest Sanctuary in Titusville, the Barrier I sland Center in South Melbourne B each and Sams House in Merritt I sland. The newly opened Sams House, located at 6195 N. Tropical Trail in M erritt Island, is the oldest-standing house in Brevard County, dating back to 1875, according to the EEL programs website. The site is a part of the Pine Island Conservation area, which features 900 acres of land and 5 miles of trails that can accommodate hiking, biking, fishing, canoeing and kayaking. Mr. Knight said early next year, the EEL program plans to open a 7mile hiking trail at the Fox Lake S anctuary in Titusville, located at 4400 Fox Lake Road. As a program designed to conserve natural resources, provide people with environmental education and create recreational opportunities for the public, the EEL pro-Hobbyists can reach people throughout the globeBy Dan Garciadgarcia@hometownnewsol.comSee R ADIO, A9By Meagan McGonemmcgone@hometownnewsol.com See LAND, A3Chamber singers to perform Dec. 11 and Dec. 12 ENTERTAINMENTB1 HOLIDAY CONCERT

Hi lls police officer Bernard S estili responded when the buildings alarm went off. He said the turkey flew into the window and was not thrown. Pr obably was roosted in one of the trees in this wooded area back here, got up this morning and went for his morning flight, and flew into the window, Sestili said.

From usnews.msnbc.msn.com: M an calls 911 when stolen boat runs out of gas C oast Guard officials in F lorida say they helped one seafood company with their big catch of the day: a 33y ear-old man who took the establishments crab boat out for a ride. W illiam Hodges was cruising the Gulf of Mexico in the 17-foot boat when it ran out of gas and he called 911 for help, Coast Guard Petty Officer Michael De Nyse told the T ampa Tribune. A bout the same time H odges was calling for assistance, the I.C. Sharks seafood company of St. P etersburg called authorities to report a stolen 17foot crab boat. The Coast Guard arrived on the scene shortly after, as did deputies, De Nyse said. H odges was arrested and charged with grand theft. Fr om msnbc.msn.com: M an bursts into flames at train station An unidentified man burst into flames while waiting outside a train station in Sw eden, leaving police flummoxed, the GteborgsP osten reported. W itnesses said the man was standing outside a music shop at the Gothenberg central train station when he suddenly caught on fire. H e just stood there burning outside the shop, a witness told the paper. After a while, he started screaming. There were a few people about, but they just watched him. I ran up to him, tore my coat off and managed to put the fire out together with another guy. The man, who sustained serious injuries, was taken to Gothenburgs Sahlgrenska hospital. Police have been at the hospital since the incident trying to piece together what happened. All we know is that its a man. We have no knowledge of his identity, nor of his age or any motive or even the circumstances of the incident, Asa Anderson, a police officer, told the newspaper. The man has not been in a condition to speak, said the officer. He is sedated and will probably remain under for another couple of weeks. P olice do not suspect foul play.

Akron City Prosecutor Doug Powley says he r eviewed the case against 42-year-old Bill Morrison and determined that, in his words, the situation did not warrant a criminal conviction. M orrison was arrested O ct. 16 and spent a night in jail after a woman saw him with the ax under his coat and called 911. The ax had r ed paint on it to simulate blood. M orrison has been a Hollywood makeup artist and has worked on haunted house attractions. He told police he was taking the costume ax to sell to a friend. Fr om watertowndailytimes.com: NY inmateslove letters prompt powder scare T wo inmates who tried to sweeten their love letters by adding a sprinkling of sugar to the envelopes accidentally touched off a hazardousmaterials scare at a prison in upstate New York. The Watertown Daily T imes reports that authorities noticed something leaking out of the envelopes at the Watertown Correctional F acility, and state police and firefighters were brought in. In one case, it turned out to be sugar. The other was lemonade mix. The Department of Corr ections says one inmate had added sugar to a note telling a woman he was still sw eet for her. Another inmate did the same thing, telling a woman his love for her was sweet enough. A uthorities say both menMc Car thy holds a bachelors degree in business administration from San D iego State University.

www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 2, 2011 Melbourne A3 Hometown Newsbrevnews@hometownnewsol.com Making The GradeHoly Trinity Students Get J ump Start In TestingAt Holy Trinity, exposure to standardized testing starts early-and its paying off. Y ou could call it American Idol for gifted students. Or y ou could call it by name: the Duke University Talent Identification Program (TIP). Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy participates in the Duke TIP program to identify academically gifted students in fourth, fifth and seventh grades. To qualify for Duke TIP, students must score in the 95th percentile or higher on one of the accepted standardized g rade-level subtests (the Lower School uses the Stanford Achievement Test). Those who qualify as gifted or talented are able to take the ACT EXPLORE Test, SAT and ACT years before students are typically able to do so. Additionally, students receive access to the Duke TIP summer program, as w ell as other opportunities beyond whats offered in the standard classroom. But Holy Trinity believes the greatest benefit is giving students early exposure to standardized testing, a critical part of the college application process. The program gives students the confidence to be successful with standardized testing because they are e xposed to the way questions are worded and formatted, said Colette Dziadul, director of lower school guidance at Holy T rinity. Evelyn Cotton is a fifthg rade teacher at Holy T rinity. Her son Ross has participated in Duke TIP. It gives them an early insight into what the test format is and a chance to practice and retake the test for better results, Ms. Cotton said. The practice is paying off. This year, Holy Trinity had the highest percentage of seventh-grade students qualify for Duke TIP in the schools history: 72 percent. The best part of this program is when several of the seventh-grade students receive their SAT or ACT scores and realize they are already high enough to qualify for admission into many universities, said junior high guidance counselor Kari Ramos. That is such an affirming moment for them. 72% of Holy Trinity Seventh-Grade Students qualify for Duke TIP 401 N. WICKHAM RD.

Last January, Brevard Co mmunity College guard Louis Adams arrived in the U.S. from Senegal to play for East Mississippi C ollege. It so happened that BCC head coach Jeremy Shulman was an assistant coach there at the time. A Division 1 coach had connected him with S ports for Education and E conomic Development in Senegal Academy, which helps place the top players in Senegal to the U nited States. When Coach Shulman r eceived the job at BCC, he brought Mr. Adams with him to Brevard C ounty. P laying basketball in the U nited States has been an adjustment for Mr. A dams, who is the only international player on the BCC mens basketball team. While it is difficult being away from his family who still lives in Senegal, Mr. A dams has developed a new basketball family in Br evard County. [Coach S hulman] hes like my father now. My teammates, they are like my brothers they are so nice. On the court, he has had to adjust from International Basketball Association Africa rules to N ational Junior College A thletic Association guidelines but Mr. Adams feels that, Im getting better every day. Im learning a lot. This summer, he had the extraordinary opportunity to travel to his home country of Senegal, Africa, to try out for the S enegalese National Basketball Team. The team was preparing to play in the African international basketball association championships in August. After arriving in Senegal, the team flew to Paris to play several exhibition games against other African and European teams for training. The team played six exhibition games against teams, including the Central African Republic, M ali, Tunisia, Rwanda and the Belgium National T eam. They finished 3-3 with BCC guard Louis A dams contributing in three of those games. Mr. Adams, who was one of the youngest players to try out for the team, did not make the final cut, but is honored to have been given the opportunity to represent his country in athletics and considers it a beneficial experience. I t was a great experience; doing the workouts I learned many things about basketball and life. I cant say anything bad about (it). BCC Mens head basketball coach Jeremy Shulman, agrees. I t was a great opportunity for Louisto get to play with the professional players that play in the NBA and play in Eur ope all coming back to his home country to play for the team. (Its) just a great experience and anytime you have a chance to r epresent your own country in athletics its pretty exciting, so when he got the invite we were all excited for him. This was not Louis A dams first opportunity to represent his country, however. Three years ago, Mr. Adams played for the U18 Senegal National T eam in the FIBA National U18 Championships. He was the leading scorer at 11.1 ppg and led his team to the semi-finals where they lost to the eventual champion, the Egyptian N ational Team. Asked whether he would try out again in the future Mr. Adams replied, Every time they call me I will. U ntil they do, which will certainly be in the near future thanks to his oncourt accomplishments, BCC students will have the opportunity to watch Louis and his BCC teammates try to defend their conference championship this season starting with their conference opener J an. 11, at Broward. L isa DeRuiter is a student in David Bradfords writing for mass communications class at BCC.

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. F ilm producers Ray and M igdalia Etheridge of Palm B ay are the first to admit that their films are never going to attract Tom Cruise or Reese Witherspoon, and theyre never going to be up for an Oscar. B ut that doesnt mean that they dont love films and film-making. As a result, the couple will host the third annual M inutes of Fame Film Festival on Saturday, featuring short films from around the world. Mo re than 50 films, including films from England, Canada, Turkey, South Kor ea and Australia are entered in the film festival at the Palm Bay Dollar Movies onMalabar Road, across from City Hall. The films, which range from 2 to 15 minutes, will be shown starting at 1 p.m. The film festival is a way to help aspiring filmmakers showcase their talents by getting some screen time, winning an award, and r esubmitting films to other festivals as they enhance their resumes. The Etheridges, both 60 and retired from regular careers, are spending their r etirement dabbling in creating short films while fostering young filmmakers who dream of a red carpet walk on Academy Awards night. The Etheridges say theyll never make money in filmmaking, but the process is its own reward. Their films cost $2,500 to produce compared to $100 million H ollywood blockbusters. The Etheridges adjust their living room backgrounds to fit a variety of scenes, and modify their garage to create a police station or a mountain cabin. They depend on budding film stars who want to hone their acting talent while serving as unpaid labor. S till, the Palm Bay couple will feel a sense of accomplishment on Saturday. I t has been said that making a movie is like giving birth, Mr. Etheridge said recently. So its great to share the experience of filmmaking. M any of the films that poured into Palm Bay will not even get a screening, because the Etheridges chose 53 films from 150 entries a weeding out process typical of film festiv als. V ideo has democratized the filmmaking industry, Mr. Etheridge said. Whats good is that everybody can make a video now, even with a cell phone. Whats bad is that everybody can make a video now. Mr. Etheridge started in films as a sixth-grader in rur al Oregon, where his family ran a general store. He did farm chores to purchase an 8mm camera at S ears and devised a minitheater above the family store. After attending the Southern California Film Institute, he edited film at KATUTV in Portland, Ore., and freelanced as a cameraman for TV stations in Colorado, K ansas, Georgia, Tennessee, C alifornia, and Honduras. He later joined the Telemundo Network and KWHY television in Los Angeles as director of photography.

F riday, December 2, 2011 A6 MelbourneHometown News Giving thanks for all our blessingsI know its a little late for to come out on Friday, but it is too bad that your couldnt print the Proclamation of Thanksgiving as given by Abraham Lincoln, who declared that the last Thursday of the month of November should be r emembered and given thanks for all our blessings.Republicans are funnyEv ery time I try to tune into the Republican debate, Im getting something that looks like Saturday Night Live. I am wondering if the cable company has the channels messed up.Response to billionaires and TeabaggersI am calling in response to The billionaires created the T eabaggers rant that I saw in Hometown News. I just think it is crazy. I just dont understand what this person doesnt understand. He is stating that billionaires have created this. I dont agree with that. The Tea Party is, and Im not a Tea Par ty person, Im just a regular person, but I believe the Tea Par ty is about reining in government and being accountable for all the debt we are in and balancing the budget of the Un ited States of America. And to this person who wrote about this, billionaires created the Teabaggers, I would just like to say to this person, what part of $15 trillion in debt dont you understand?L obbyists are running CongressI learned something new today while I was reading the paper. We have a fourth branch of government called lobbyists. C ongress is apparently caving to their lobbying about allowing all the frozen pizzas, salt and potatoes in school lunches because those companies lobbied Congress like crazy to swort Obamas healthier lunches in school. I guess it is pretty clear who the elected officials listen to the big business that pays these lobbyists and the lobbyist themselves. So I guess we have to rewrite the Constitution.Response to Billionaires created the teabaggersOnce again the author presents a highly-researched and thoughtful rant laced with the repugnant (perhaps unwittingly, yet no the less derogatory) sexual slur teabagger. Its almost like reading an article in the Fact Free Media. I found it interesting that the only billionaires that were mentioned were the Koch brothers. They own the second largest privately-held energy company in the United States, employing 50,000 Americans. Per haps the author is offended that these people are not employed by the government. Oddly enough, they happen to be conservative. S ince the subject of billionaires has been broached, lets look at some others that the author may have missed. How about Brian Harrison, the CEO of Solyndra, the bankrupt solar panel company that took $535 million of taxpayer money in loan guarantees? He just happened to be a major donor and money bundler for the president. Or Jeffery Immult, the CEO of GE and one the presidents job czars. He just closed GEs Medical Imaging Division and sent it to China. Or Warren Buffet, the Oracle of Omaha, who keeps complaining that he isnt taxed enough, yet fails to write a check to the treasury on his o wn volition. W arren made his money through the federal estate tax. He sells life insurance policies that fund irrevocable life insurance trusts that replace wealth that is lost to families through the estate tax. And lets not forget George Soros, the currency speculator, who made $1.1 billion shorting the English pound. Wait until he shorts the U.S. dollar. He might become the first trillionaire. The list of Democrat billionaires goes on, but there is one more important point to make before taking up too much space. The reason that billionaires flock to Washington, D.C., is the same reason that Jesse James robbed banks. As he said, That is where the money is. What we are witnessing is crony capitalism, where billionaires use the power of government to take advantage of competitors in the marketplace. Editors note: The quote you mentioned is widely attributed to 1950s bank robber Willie Sutton,although,according to snopes.com,Mr.Sutton claims the quote was made up by an enterprising reporter.All you do is complainA ctions speaks louder then words, yet all I mostly see when reading the rants and raves is that people complain. When you have a problem, you try to solve that problem. If you dont, the problem still remains. There are those of us who do try to make a difference, yet there are too many who just dont care. All they can do is complain. W ell its time to make that difference. Its time to care about others instead of yourselves and get out there and do something to make that positive change. Tr y it. You might feel better knowing that you helped someone or you made a difference. If I, a poor disabled person, can get out there and make that difference, so can you. R emember, actions speaks louder then words.We read the rantsWe all read the rants, even if we dont read all the rest of the paper. I found this out a while back from everyone in the neighborhood and at a city council meeting. Then I asked to subscribed to the paper just for the rants. It probably should be expanded. Do you think?God does not approve of it It is in the Bible that God speaks against homosexuals. Per haps you who are not offended by this same-sex marr iage should pick up a Bible and read Corinthians, Chapter 6 Verses 9-20. S ince these people will not be allowed in heaven, what makes you think God approves of same-sex marriages? Y es God did make marriage a union, but it was for the woman and man, not for woman and woman and not for man and man. Y ou can insult me all you want to, but this much I do know: when you go before God for your judgment, he will let you know that he is not for this same-sex marriage. You sure wont be able to argue with Him. Y ou sure wont be able to insult him by calling him bigoted and narrow-minded. Do you honestly think that God or myself or others who are against such things care about the statistics? Do you really believe that God is going to say Wait a minute, let me check the statistics? W ith all my Christian heart, I doubt very much God is going to concern himself with what you say or any other person says concerning these statistics. S ince man turned his back and disobeyed God, people like you have this perverted way of thinking. It is not up to me or you. It is up to God when the time comes that all of this will be put to an end. The only way any of these people are going to be saved is to repent turn their lives over to Jesus and stop this way of life, because it is against the will of God for people to live this kind of life.Obamaville encampments and Tea Party ralliesI hope that voters are taking note of which political party Got something to say?

Thats the takeaway from meetings I attended around the state r ecently where PIP auto insurance fraud was the topic of discussion. PIP, or personal injury protection, is insurance coverage added to your overall auto policy that is intended to pay for medical and other expenses associated with a car crash, r egardless of fault. In F lorida, a minimum of $10,000 PIP coverage is r equired with each policy. We pay the highest auto liability insurance premiums in the nation, 56 percent more than other states. U nfortunately, Florida also leads the nation in staged accidents and questionable claims, which is why the number of crashes is going down, while the number of PIP claims and the cost of those claims is going up. After receiving a PIP fraud update during the cabinet meeting in Tallahassee, Jeff A twater, Floridas chief financial officer and I participated in listening meetings with Floridians in T allahassee, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa and M iami to hear their concerns about PIP fraud and ideas for a solution. We learned that if we do nothing, the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation predicts a 29 percent PIP pure premium increase each year. While the pure premium increase directly impacts the insurer, the costs get passed down to consumers through rate hikes, since insurers must raise rates to close the gap created by r apidly increasing fraud costs. In a time when were working every day to get F loridas economy back on its feet, the last thing we need is fraudsters to cause auto insurance premiums to skyrocket and raise the cost of living in this state, something I have vowed to prevent as governor. After listening to constituents affected by PIP fraud and their solutions to the problem, I announced four pillars that must be addressed to fix PIP: fraud prevention, litigation r eform, utilization and provider reform and accountability. My expectation is that we will provide significant PIP reform this legislative session. F lorida consumers have already paid more than $800 million for PIP fraud ov er the last several years and enough is enough. F lorida needs better protections for consumers, and I am committed to holding the line on runaway premiums in order to fulfill my promise to keep the cost of living low and get our state back to work. I encourage all Floridians with ideas for fixing PIP to email me at Rick.Scott@eog.myflorida.co m or call your House and S enate members and let them know that you expect them to support PIP reform so we can reduce the cost of auto insurance in Florida.

In N ew York, the confrontations between protesters and police have become increasingly combative and have cost area small businesses and vendors in the area more than $500,000 in damages and lost business. Much the same has been seen in Chicago, Boston, Oakland andNew Haven. The one great achievement of this movement will be that Americans will finally wake up and see Liberal Progressive D emocrats for what they really are mentally ill misfits, potheads andclueless drum beaters duped by Obama. M ost have beenbrain washedin a failed public school and higher education system. They are trying to fashion an ideological cover for their o wn empty, confused and unproductive lives. J ust like the workers who were used by Lenin during the R ussian Revolution, these airheads are being used by George Soros, Obama and organized labor thugs to advance their Marxist agenda. The irony of their nonviolent calls to shut down Wall Str eetis too rich for words. The Obamaville movement has virtually assured the defeat of Progressive Liberalism in our next election.Tax holiday does not workM embers of the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction, also known as the Super Committee, are hopeful that a repatriation tax holiday allowing domestic companies to claim profits made overseas at reduced tax rates will boost the economy by encouraging capital investment and job growth here in the United States. A similar proposal was enacted in 2004. The tax holiday proposal did not increase employment, and in most cases reduced employment in the years following. Fixing the problem and ending the Postal Services crisisS en. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) recently introduced the Postal Ser vice Protection Act (S. 1853), a bill that would go a long way toward resolving the United States Postal Services financial crisis. S en. Sanders bill identifies the underlying causes of the P ostal Services dire financial situation and presents methods for resolving the crisis. It offers solutions. Se veral other bills currently pending in Congress would destroy much of the Postal Service and American life. The Postal Service Protection Act would: Fix the Postal Services immediate financial crisis by allowing the USPS to recover the overpayments it made to its retiree pension funds both the $7 billion overpayment to the Federal Employees Retirement System and the $50 billion to $75 billion overpayment to the Civil Service Retirement System. In addition, the bill would eliminate the unique requirement that the USPS pre-fund 75 years worth of future retiree health benefits in just 10 years. No other agency or company in America is required to pre-fund these benefits. Establish new ways to generate revenue by ending theRantsF rom page A6 See R ANTS, A8

prohibition on USPS providing non-postal services, such as providing notary services, new media services and issuance of licenses; contracting with state and local agencies to provide services; shipping wine and beer, and allowing the USPS to provide services that mail systems in many other countries provide, including digital services. Create a blue-ribbon commission composed of entrepreneurs, representatives of labor and small businesses to provide recommendations on how the Po stal Service can generate new revenue to succeed in the 21st century. Prevent the closing of rur al post offices by giving the Postal Regulatory Commission binding authority to prevent closures based on the effect on the community and employees. The bill would also prohibit USPS from considering whether a post office is turning a profit when making the decision to conduct a feasibility study for closure. Protect six-day delivery. Protect mail-processing facilities by requiring strict standards for delivering first-class mail. S urprise and gratitude were the two emotions that Mike C onnors said first came to mind last month, after hearing his name called at the N ational Association for Pupil Tr ansportation Conference in Cincinnati. The director of transportation for Brevard Public Schools, Mr. Connors was named the 2011 Administrator of the Year by School Bus F leet Magazine, a national publication designed to inform the school transportation industry of safety and maintenance issues, regulatory news, training best practices and other topics. F irst of all, I was totally shocked and surprised when my name was called, and then to stand on stage in this grand ballroom, with all my colleagues in transportation from all over the country in attendance, was truly amazing, said Mr. Connors, who just celebrated his 12th year with Brevard Public Schools. F or the past 38 years, the A dministrator of the Year award has been presented to directors of transportation at the school-district level, as w ell as at the state level, who show exceptional performance in their district, said Thomas McMahon, executive editor of School Bus Fleet M agazine. M ikes colleagues and the industry leaders we contacted spoke very highly of him, citing his leadership skills and his dedication to providing safe transportation for Breva rd s students, Mr. McMahon said. He runs an efficient operation with a well-maintained fleet that is one of the 100 largest school bus fleets in the nation. Mr. McMahon also commended Mr. Connors for coming up with a plan to save the Brevard Schools District $1.2 million in 2009, which also led to his being selected. H e added 15 minutes between elementary and secondary bell times, which allowed the district to reduce its number of route buses, Mr. McMahon said. The process for selecting an A dministrator of the Year var ies from year to year, Mr. McM ahon said, but this year, the magazine asked for nominations from its readers. Then, the staff received input from colleagues and leaders in the industry in order to make its decision. Pr ior to beginning his tenure in Brevard County, Mr. C onnors served as director of transportation for Escambia C ounty in Pensacola for seven y ears. In his current position, Mr. C onnors is responsible for the districts 408 school buses, which transport more than 29,000 students each school day, as well as 557 transportation employees, including 455 bus drivers. The Brevard County School D istrict transportation department is currently the 52nd largest fleet in the nation and the 10th largest fleet in F lorida, Mr. Connors said. In addition to serving as transportation director in Brevar d, Mr. Connors also served the past two years as president of the Florida Association for Pupil Transportation and is past chairman of the F lorida Delegation for the N ational Congress on School Tr ansportation. A 25-year veteran of the U.S. Air Force, Mr. Connors and his wife, Margaret, have two children and two grandchildren. He is also an avid golfer. While he is extremely grateful for receiving the national award, Mr. Connors said he would not have been recognized for his efforts without the help and support of the districts school board, school bus drivers, technicians, transportation staff, supervisors and entire administration staff. This award is given out as an individual award, but I am not solely responsible because I have such a terrific group of people working with me in transportation, who have made this all possible, Mr. Connor said. They have each had a tremendous impact on what led to this honor. F riday, December 2, 2011 A8 MelbourneHometown News www.durangolf.comwww.durangolf.com70 32 Stadium Pkwy. Viera 70 32 Stadium Pkwy.

studied Business Administration at Florida International University in Miami and worked as an accountant. After the Etheridges met and married in 1997, they developed a film-making partnership. Of course, with numerous films distributed worldwide, the competition is fierce. There are literally millions of movies out there, if y ou include YouTube, Mr. E theridge said. Today people can buy a video camera for just a few dollars. Its harder to find an audience. I ndependent filmmakers like the Etheridges are at a technological disadvantage, too. A udiences have become so sophisticated and so accustomed to computer generated images that they expect something to blow up or morph into a monster within the first five minutes, or they get bored, Mr. E theridge said. S o its harder than ever for independent filmmakers. But everybody who is anybody started out making films like these, including S teven Spielberg and Francis Ford Coppola. Mr. Etheridge said lowbudget films cost $3 million to produce, and average films cost $12 million to $15 million. M igdalia Etheridge says H ollywood is a far cry from the independent film world. W e give our actors a $25 gas allowance, and we serve them lunch, she said. B ut a good film is a good film. Movies like The Blair Wi tch Project and Paranormal Activity rose to Hollywood as independent, low-budget productions. The Etheridges say they love making movies, even if their roles are just script writing, casting or camerawork. F ilm festivals are to independent films what the A cademy Awards are to mainstream films, Mr. E theridge said. We absolutely love the process of making a film, and its a thrill to show it to an audience. W ithin independent filmmaking, competition is fierce. Worldwide, there are 5,000 film festivals, Mr. E theridge said. The prestigious Sundance F ilm Festival receives about 15,000 entries annually, and shows to 150 films, Mr. E theridge said. O ur main goal is to share films with people, Mrs. E theridge said. When we came to Brevard County, people said, There are not enough cultural events here. Well, here we are. The Minutes of Fame F ilm Festival will present awards in 14 categories, including best Florida film, screenplay, drama, comedy, directing, cinematography and editing. A dmission is $2. A hand up not a hand outIve been waiting for Obamas redistribution of w ealth policies to hit me in the wallet. I work for a local corporation and just completed our health care re-enrollment process. In the plans literature is the following quote as to the reason for our plans cost increase. The increase has been driven by many factors, including the price of health care reform (e.g. up to age 26 coverage for children) This reform that includes coverage for 26 year-old children will cost me and my family $728 more in premiums alone in 2012. So thank you Mr. President, for looking out for the middle-class. I use these facts to highlight a larger point and that is to draw the stark contrast between the liberal and conservative view points and their approach to the countrys problems. The liberal view is to hand the 26-year-old a fish so he can sustain himself on mommy and daddys couch while someone else subsidizes his laziness. This fosters the entitlement mentality we see today. You want to live your life that way, fine, less competition for my kids. But when I now have to subsidize this? I have a problem. The conservative view is to show the 26-year-old where to buy a fishing rod and teach him to learn the skills himself to catch the fish. This is called education, training and hard work such that at the age of 26 junior has incentive to get a good job with good health benefits. Hardly a new concept. Amateur Radio Society, said on some days, traffic on his r adio may be sparse. B ut on other nights, the r adio crackles with conversation. When I turn on the radio, its like going fishing, because you never know what youre going to catch, Mr. Fisher said. You might start it up and theres just nothing biting. You might spend a couple of hours on the radio and come home with an empty bucket. B ut you might go out and, holy cow, theyre jumping all over the place. Every time I throw the line out, I get a bite, he said. Mr. Fisher said that whether man communicated with smoke signals, the M orse Code telegraph, the party-line telephone, or todays mobile phones and computerized e-mail, man has always had the need to communicate. Thats why ham radios are as much of a hobby as a vital link. Communicators like Mr. Fisher enjoy talking with other hobbyists around the world. H am radio, first and foremost, is a hobby, Mr. Fisher said. There are 700,000 amateur radio licensees in the United States alone. Breva rd C ounty is home to nearly 3,000 licensees. I have a ham radio at home, in my car and in my patrol car, he said. I can set one up on the beach and talk across the ocean on five watts, which we call barefooting. Mr. Fisher marvels: In a way, ham radios are the original wireless technology. So where did the name H am come from? Mr. Fisher said professionals who sent Morse C ode messages became highly skilled at it, but amateurs who sent similar signals tended to whack away at the telegraph in a hamhanded way. They called the amateurs ham-fisted operators, and it was a derogatory term, Mr. Fi sher said. The irony is that nobody uses Morse C ode anymore except for hams.

It s tree time again! To keep y our tree fresh cut some off the bottom before putting it in a stand. Even though some was cut when it was purchased, it probably has sealed up with sap. U se lukewarm water for the first time to which you have added one aspirin for a tree up to 7 foot and 2 for a larger tree. Add cold water once or twice a day thereafter. If the water is gone the trunk will seal and the tree will die. Id like to share with you how I handled the I wants that go on and on with children at Christmas. I explained that many children throughout the world didnt have anything so moms and dads who could afford it sent S anta money for toys their children wanted so then S anta could give presents to the poor children who had nothing. Now you can negotiate, choices can be made and there will be no disappointments since they know how much money you can afford to send Santa. M akes sense, doesnt it? C ommon sense tells us that S anta doesnt have time to set up a tree and he certainly doesnt have time to wrap gifts especially in the same paper your kids saw you buy! In my family we celebrate both Christmas Eve and Christmas day. Of course we do, were Italian! How else can we become martyrs? G ifts are exchanged on Christmas Eve both to family members and the kids. Pr esents to be exchanged are wrapped and placed under the tree. Since Santa hasnt come yet nobody knows what he will bring. Try my way, it worked for us through four kids and they kept the faith longer. By the way, (God forgive me), when my kids said their friends parents told them otherwise, I told my kids they (the parents) were liars. Now that I have confessed my sin lets get to the recipes. This week well cover some delicious cookie recipes. You can mix up most of the batters now, freeze them and when baking time is here, how easy will your life be? Be aware that when I r ecommend Smart Balance butter substitute, which works great in place of butter or margarine Im not talking LIGHT; it is too soft and will not work. Enjoy, see you next week!

This week, I thought I would take another trip down memory lane using Facebook. It took me a while to jump on the Facebook bandwagon. I didnt really see a need for it. I decided to check it out when I got a friend request a few years back from a coworker and set up my account. I uploaded a picture, filled out the profile and added a couple of friends, and that was it. F or a long time, nothing happened. I didnt give F acebook a second thought. My F acebook friends were a few people that I saw every day, so I only logged in maybe once every six months and, frankly, didnt see what all the hub-bub was about. Then something funny happened. I opened my email one day and there was a F acebook friend request waiting for me, and the name r ang a bell. I thought to myself as I clicked the link, Wo w! I used to know a guy by that name back in high school. To my wonder, it turned out thats exactly who it was. I want to point out my new F acebook friend wasnt someone I used to pal around with as a kid; I just remember him from school. But here he was, sitting in my inbox. I had no idea of the levels of nostalgia I was about to unleash in the next few months as I clicked the accept button, but the cascade started when I went to check out my new friends list of friends. He had 60 or so listed, but as I started scrolling down, I started recognizing names going back to high school and even grammar school. That morning, I probably recognized half of a dozen names from way back and sent them all friend requests. Almost immediately, I started getting replies: OMG, are you the same Sean Mc Car thy that grew up in Wor cester, Mass.? and Wow! We we re just talking about y ou! I even got a Do I know y ou? I think youre looking for my grandfather. In the next few days, I found myself logging onto F acebook on a daily basis, and it seemed there was always some new connection. As my name started getting added to friends lists, other old friends started recognizing me and sending requests. As I accepted more and more friend requests, I found myself browsing different friend lists and profiles. Almost overnight, I went from barely thinking about F acebook to browsing profiles for hours looking for old friends and getting reconnected. In the past eight months, Ive been talking with old friends displaced by thousands of miles and decades of time. Status updates started to really be interesting; its like theres this newsreel running up-to-the-minute commentaries highlighting whats going on in the lives of the people I grew up with. P lus, thanks to Facebook, I am back in touch with several dear friends who I had lost touch with. I am glad I joined Facebook. Sure, they are under criticism for their privacy policies, but I understand those concerns are being addressed, and Im not worried about them. W ith that said, I invite you to be my friend. Visit www.Facebook.com/TheM ouseWhisperer (no hyphens) and Ill see you online.

C all (321) 574-0520.Not long ago, I sent a friend of mine two samples of some articles I had written and asked him for feedback. This particular person is someone I have known for w ell over 30 years, so I knew he would be honest with me. I found his response r ather interesting. He liked the piece I was certain he would not, and the sample I was certain he would enjoy he had a difficult time with. When I asked him why he didnt like the second piece, he said, Its not the writing. It s all this stuff about a personal God, and having a r elationship with God. I just dont buy it. I thought about his comments for a long time. What a lonely place it must be to think we have to face life all alone. I cant imagine how difficult life would seem if I believed the only tools I could rely on we re my own wits and ego. J esus said, The truth shall set you free. I believe this is an invitation to remember our divine connection and to know that whatever we face in life, we are never alone. We cant be alone because our creator is closer than our very breath. There is a wonderful parable about a young boy who is obsessed with seeking the truth. He leaves home at an early age and travels the world to find it. F inally at 75, feeling defeated, he decides to return home. When he opens the door, there is Truth patiently waiting for him. The obvious message is we need not look outside for the truth; it resides within each of us. I believe that we are all divine emanations and that Spirit is always available to us. My church teaches that God responds to us as we open to God, so that all prayers are answered to the degree that we are willing to invite God into our lives. In other words, a personal, warm and loving relationship with God is always available to everyone. How ever, we must make the first move. The philosopher Soren K ierkegaard wrote, We must take the risk in believing in something that may not be provable we must take a chance, take a r isk, a leap of faith, of belief and of commitment. We must put our doubts aside and allow God into our hearts. The surest way to discover what is real and what is an illusion is to develop a r elationship with God. Only then can we know what is authentic. I have often had people come and tell me how their lives are filled with pain and that they have lost their faith. When times are difficult, it is easy to forget our connection to Spirit and to strike out and blame the world, friends, family, fate, luck or even God. Making the decision to have a r elationship with God enables us to see beyond our momentary discomfort and to know that it is within our power to move from fear to peace, anger to love and victimization to selfsufficiency. Ernest Holmes wrote, There is a power for good in the universe available to everyone and you can use it. Why not begin today to use this power? Invite God into your life and see what happens. Think about it, you can go on trusting yourself or the one who made the mountains, oceans and sun and stars. For me its an easy choice. How about you?

S leighbells ringing and White Christmases are the stuff of memories, but not of life in Florida. S till, while its fun to recall holidays past, its also fun to make new traditions with our Florida families, as one expert described it. In this issue, there is a serious story about coping with the holidays. For many, far from families, perhaps financially challenged, the holidays are not what they once were. If there has been a loss, this time of year can be very difficult. Experts from area hospitals and counseling centers have suggestions for making the holiday season a peaceful time and a time of hope.

This photo was taken at the dedication ceremony for Ben Abramowitzs father at Fort Monmouth.Photo courtesy of Ben Abramowitz F amily shows generations of service MELBOURNE The story of Chanukah is the story of religious tolerance and the fight for freedom. Mo re than 2,000 years ago, a small band of Jewish fighters fought the much larger Syrian Greek army. U nder the leadership of Mattathias and his eldest son, Judah M accabee, the Jews reclaimed the T emple in Jerusalem and won the r ight to practice their religion. F our generations of the Abr amowitz family know something about defending freedom, as w ell. Ben Abramowitz of Indian River Colony Club in Melbourne is the second generation of soldiers his family has produced. H is father, Reuben, came from Uk ra ine by way of Ellis Island. When Reubens father, a union organizer, was murdered in 1907, y oung Reuben enlisted in the Army to support his mother and siblings. When he retired as commandant of the European Signal School, the field house at Fort Monmouth in N ew Jersey and the Signal Center at Fo rt Gor don, Ga., were named in his honor. B en Abramowitz was born at Fo rt M onmouth and always knew he would be a soldier. I was born on an army post, he said. I grew up during the Second World War. My father was then a noncommissioned officer and I lived in Germany until I was 13. I always wanted to be a soldier. I respected what he did. I was one of the few who knew what he wanted to do at two. In 1947, while the family was still in Germany, young Ben had his bar mitzvah in the synagogue his father had the German government r ebuild after the war. Just as in the Chanukah story, the synagogue was r ededicated for Jewish worship. B en Abramowitz went on to study at Virginia Tech and was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the infantry. He applied for flight school and was accepted. He was stationed near Fort Riley, K an., and a rabbi in a nearby community invited him to a Passover S eder. He met Irene in April and they were married in June. B en Abramowitz went on to have a distinguished military career, with two tours in Vietnam and service at the Pentagon. He eventually taught leadership and ethics courses at the Command and General Staff College. That was not, however, his greatest legacy. By Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor See SERVICE, Page 20

To get into the spirit of the holiday season, the horses and barn are decorated with lights, tinsel and antlers for the horses.Photo courtesy of Pam Rogan W oman uses horses to help heal R OCKLEDGE The animals w earing colorful antlers in December at Harmony Farms arent reindeer, but they bring gifts. They are horses used in equestrian therapy, helping people with developmental, physical and emotional disabilities to find success and joy in a world that often pushes them aside. Har mony Farms is the brainchild of Pam Rogan, who started it with a friend in 1992. I mov ed here from New York in 1991, she said. I had worked for Hartford Insurance for 20 years and I didnt have to work. I was looking to do volunteer work and I wanted to work with children and animals. We felt there were no alternative therapy programs for people with disabilities. Har mony Farms is a non-forprofit organization that provides equine-assisted therapy and activities for people with disabilities. U nder very strict safety guidelines, ri ders of all ages learn to challenge themselves. The youngest rider at the farm is 4 and the oldest, 85. Clients are referred to Harmony Far ms by physicians and other health care providers. I n 1992, you were hard-pressed to get a doctor to sign a release, Ms. R ogan said. Now, the majority of clients come from physicians and therapists.

7BR EVARD CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2011FOREVER YOU NG Holidays present challenge for many VIERA For many people, the holiday season brings to mind family and friends, the aroma of baking, the fun of buying and wrapping presents for the kids. For many in Florida, families are far away, money may be tighter and it sometimes just doesnt seem worth it to prepare when its just for one or two. I t can be difficult for seniors, said Kathy Ridner, care manager for One Senior Place in Viera. Brevard C ounty is a beautiful place to retire, but families are fragmented. An aging senior starts to have health problems and cant travel. They find themselves alone. Finances contribute to the challenge. F or those who must celebrate the holidays alone, Ms. Ridner said that changing traditions can help. Y ou can make new traditions, she said. Invite the neighbors. You can scale back decorations and meal preparation. Have carry-out or go to a restaurant. Reach out to neighbor and church communities. If youre in a senior community, there are activities. Redefine the definition of family. Family comes in all shapes and sizes. Ms. Ridner mentioned a couple who lived on a block with a young family. The childrens grandparents lived out-of-state, so the couple became adopted grandparents and shared events with them. Ms. Ridner also said that volunteering is a good day to cope. I t feels better to do something for someone else, she said. Get an angel from a tree, donate a coat or food, serve a meal at a soup kitchen if yo u re up to it, she said. I t s hard sometimes. People get a little bit stuck because it feels sad and it feels and looks different. Start to find joy in smaller things. Its not about spending $200 on gifts. Its about the feeling and the thought. It s shifting the definition of what makes us feel joy. Mar ilyn Cromer counsels those dealing with grief at VITAS Innovative Hospice, a community partner of One Senior Place. She said that its important to plan for the holidays, especially for those who have suffered a recent loss. S et realistic goals, she said. U nderstand that this year will be different. Allow others to provide support. Of you did all the running around in the past, give yourself permission to ask for help. While you may not be able to do all the things you used to do, its important to establish new traditions. Try to avoid canceling the holidays, she said. That will make you feel worse. If you always had 20 for dinner, perhaps does a breakfast buffet or go out to eat. Help someone else. There are senior places that offer a meal. Help others who dont have a place to go. I f this is the first time around for the holidays after a loss, honor the memory of the loved one. You can light a candle or talk about special memories. The first year after a significant loss, the first holidays, anniversaries and birthdays are intense. Think in advance of how to honor and r emember the loved one. That tends to establish a tradition. Do it again next year. One idea Ms. Cromer suggests to children and adults is a memory box. Y ou can decorate it and write little notes about the loved one or put in photos or things symbolic of them. P ull it out if youre feeling lonely. If granddad loved to go fishing with y ou, the memory of going fishing may give a moment of pleasure.

Moores law, is the effect coined back around 1970 by Cal Tech professor and entrepreneur Ca rv er Mead, when observing that the size and price of a transistor halved every two years. The effect of this law has brought us everything from the iphone and Droid, to huge flat screen entertainment centers that festoon our walls with ever greater frequency, offering life like, life sized color images and the sounds of all things imaginable.Dur ing this same period, hearing aids have evolved from the rather simple class a, b, or d amplifiers of our parents time, to ultra miniature, open platform, audio computers. The top of class today are even equipped with broadband, ultra low powered radio transceivers piggy backed right on board, making them capable of connections with such as your TV, cell phones, lap tops and other electronic devices. As this inter device communications capability proceeds with the logical development of both operational and interface software, one of the key ease of use restraints currently plaguing our `entire industry, that of issuing programing and operational instructions to the devices, will be greatly simplified. S oon, several manufactures will be offering devices with programing applications utilizing existing, open platform programing tools and available RF technology. This will allow discreet, secure, wireless access, programing, communications with and control over all manner of ear level devices, all with inherent audio and visual signal processing capabilities of a degree only dreamed of in the past. As this newer, more consumer friendly equipment becomes available, so to will the opportunity to reach more and more consumers as that all important cost/benefit ratio continues to move further in the consumers favor. The FDA recognized this evolution in equipment in 2009 when they established a new classification of products known as personal sound amplification products and established for their sale outside of the normal and highly r egulated hearing aid delivery system, provided they arent sold as hearing aids, or to correct a hearing loss. Fur ther changes and challenges to the current delivery system were in evidence last month when the largest health insurance provider in the country, United Health Care announce that they had purchased their own hearing aid manufacture and were going to start offering consumer direct sales, with prices ranging from $449 an ear to $999 and ear, without the r equisite visit to any professional, or licensee, excepting their phone, or I nternet screening system. While this announcement drew immediate warning from The Better Hearing I nstitute regarding do it your self hearing aid fitting, it drew much more than that, in the form of a cease and desist letter from the attorney for the I nternational Hearing Society (IHS) and angry letters threatening further actions, by the Academy of Doctors of A udiology (ADA and the American A cademy of Audiology (AAA). How ever, regardless of how loud these professional associations howl, the handwriting is on the wall. Greater consumer choice, value and hearing are here now for those who want to go through the current system and more and more avenues are opening to the consumer everyday that make better hearing easier and less expensive for everyone.10BR EVARD CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2011FOREVER YOU NG Tr ends and opportunities in consumer hearing By R.D.

11BR EVARD CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2011FOREVER YOU NG Christmas pig roast about family as much as food For me Christmas has always been a time to enjoy family and lots of good food. As I look back over the years I must say I have fond memories of each and every one. B ut a few standout. One that I treasure happened in the middle 1980s when my younger sister Linda, her husband and two sons moved west of DeLand to a little spot called Paisley. If you are not familiar, it is a very small rural outpost about five miles west of the S t. Johns River that is completely surrounded by the huge Ocala N ational Forest. Their new home was situated on a very large and hilly lot. At that time, Linda and I had lots of extended family living around C entral Florida and we decided to try and get them all together for a holiday pig roast. As roast master it was my job to go up to Pierson to buy a fully dressed hog of nearly 100 pounds. It was fun going to the country slaughterhouse to pick out our pig and spend a few moments with the man who had raised it. At my insistence it was to be the men who would do the cooking. F irst, I dug a long shallow pit and covered it with steel bars. Some of the others went into the forest and brought back truck after truck of hard wood. The night before Christmas Eve, we began by building a giant bonfire. As the wood burned down we shoveled the hot coals under the pig and readied ourselves for a long night. To do this job properly the hog must be slow cooked with lots of love and attention. The key to the whole thing would be my secret recipe barbeque sauce of which I concocted about four gallons (you can never have too much sauce). As the night began, my helpers numbered about 10 but as Lindas w ell-fortified homemade eggnog started to take effect, the men began to look for a spot to curl up and nap. Around midnight the cracklins (pig skin, for you city folk) r eached crispy perfection and we all eagerly dipped them in my delicious sauce and ate our fill. H aving regained our senses somewhat, a TV-VCR set up was brought out and we all watched one of the earliest versions of A Christmas Car ol. As we hissed and booed Scrooge and cheered for Bob Cr atchit and Tiny Tim we poured whiskey all around, foregoing the eggnog this round. Now, for a big time pig roast like this to be successful the animal must be turned regularly. That task r equired four men to each grab a leg and make the flip. Unfortunately, by 2 a.m. there was only a quarter of that number awake me and I was becoming undependable. A couple hours later, my first cousin Randy woke up long enough to stagger over and fall onto the picnic table, dumping out the entire four gallons of prize-winning barbecue sauce. As the sun came up, we were all asleep and the pig was getting cold. Along about 10 a.m. of Christmas Eve we were able to give the pig a couple hours of concentrated attention and the part that wasnt burned seemed to be cooked pretty well. That afternoon all of the womenfolk began to show up with their delicious side dishes and desserts. That evening we all ate outdoors and most agreed that the hog hadLAND LINESD AN SMITH See LANDLINES, Page 16 Scott L.

12BR EVARD CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2011FOREVER YOU NG Change is good! (usually) Times change, dress changes, Ev en THE CHANGE has changed. I know some of us (usually the men-folk) yearn for the Old Days when things were simpler (For them!) but I dont think I would have fared very well at all. I cannot picture myself in a woolen bathing suit r ushing home from taking the kids to the beach so I can have a homecooked lunch waiting for my husband when he gets home from the polls while fighting hot flashes During prohibition. F amilies have certainly changed; when I go to my grandsons high school football games I find myself surrounded by my son, his younger children, his beautiful new wife, her children, my ex-daughter-in-law, her new husband, their new daughter and my sons ex-mother-in-law. Each and every one of us is standing, y elling and slapping each other on the back when our team scores. M ost symptoms of THE CHANGE are now treatable to a certain extent, shortening the late night hours spent fanning ourselves with the freezer door considerably. H olidays may be one constant in our lives, but the way we celebrate has certainly come a long way. When my children were young we usually had the big family day at our house. Due in large part to the fact that I was usually absent from the family meetings where location was decided, my husbands family would converge in the morning, cousins usually began running and screaming in all directions just about the time M acys parade began, we would be finishing the last piece of pie (for the moment) just as the game came on, then coffee and more pie during half time. As my family aged and grew with the addition of significant others, the arrival of my grandchildren and new sets of in-laws, we re-invented our celebrations as necessary. I began serving a brunch on the holidays. We all brought something for brunch and my children could spend half the day with us then be free to enjoy turkey and trimmings with the other side of their families. C ontrary to popular opinion, (usually from the other side of the families) I did not arrange things this way to have the pleasure of my grandchildrens company when they were awake and bright in the morning, not tired and cranky later in the afternoon. Nor was it my intention to be the Grammy who loves them the most by filling them with hand/turkey cookies or gingerbread men just to send them to their other grandparents. (But I have to admit the words favoritist Grammy in the world! did spread a special kind of warmth throughout my sleepdeprived soul, as did the nap that I was now able to grab later in the afternoon). B ut still we grew. None of us have homes large enough to accommodate 45 plus people and still have room for all the cousins (second and third generation now) to run and scream, so we once again became harbingers of change.

Every day, consumers find out someone is illegally using their personal information to make purchases and open new financial accounts, like credit cards and loans. U ndetected, identity fraud can lead to difficulties in applying for a mortgage, loan, new credit card or bank accounts even if youve had great credit for years. The road to recovery may be a long, aggravating journey, especially when you dont catch fraud immediately. Last year, 8.1 million adults were the victims of identity fraud, according to a recent Javelin Str ategy & Research Identity Fraud Survey. He re are some tips to help protect yourself from an identity nightmare: Online: When creating passwords, dont use information that easily could be linked to you like your birth date, Social Security number, phone number, or the names of family and pets. Using a mix of numbers, letters, and characters to create your password makes it harder for others to guess. Change your passwords every 30 days, and use unique passwords on each site you access. Whether youre providing financial information for a loan or placing an order online, be sure the site youre using is secure. Look for a URL that begins with https:// and has a closed padlock symbol in the lower right-hand corner of your browser. U sing and regularly updating anti-virus and anti-spyware software on your computer can also help to safeguard your information from identity theft. Ne ver email personal information, such as account numbers or your social security number, to anyone, not even to yourself.

18BR EVARD County December 2011FOREVER YOU NG On a typical day, Ms. Rogan and her team of certified therapeutic riding instructors might have an autistic child, a child with Down syndrome and two with cerebral palsy. The lesson incorporates games, therapy, stretching and a fun period, Ms. Rogan said. Its one of the better activities for autism. There is social interaction with the horse and the riding instructor. I t requires attention and focusing while they are learning how to r ide. You see parents in tears when they see the child giggle. Theyve never heard that. There are special challenges for r iders with physical disabilities. I f theyve been in a wheelchair all day, theres a back rest and a foot r est, Ms. Rogan said. Few muscles hold them. We take them out of the chair and put them on a horse. There is no back or arm rest and they have to start using core muscles. I f they cant sit, we use a waist belt. The only type of disability we cant handle is a quadriplegic. We hate to turn people away. F or Pam Rogan, who has loved horse all her life, this is a dream come true. She grew up in Brooklyn and asked for a horse every Christmas and birthday. Now she has them and she has the joy of seeing them help children smile. When you see an autistic child hug you and thank you, you cant r eplicate it anywhere, she said. We see it every day. Horses dont judge and they dont ask questions. Kids and adults with physical disabilities say that no one else will give them a chance or let them try. We challenge them to do more. They cant control their own bodies, but they can control a 1,200-pound animal. This is the holiday season, and Har mony Farms gets into the spirit on Dec. 4 from 1-5 p.m. with its annual Blizzard, an open house featuring games for children, pony r ides and a chance to mingle with farm animals decked out in holiday attire. For a small fee to raise money for the facility children can help decorate the barn, feed the horses or have their pictures taken with an animal.

19BR EVARD CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2011FOREVER YOU NG Aftering collecting as much information as possible on your ancestors by interviewing relatives, finding pictures, documents, tombstones, etc., it is time to get down to some serious genealogy research. One of the first r esources that is the most important and easiest to find, is the federal census.The U.S. government has conducted a household census in every state, every 10 years since 1790. The census records from 1790-1930 can be searched by the public except for 1890, which was destroyed by fire. They are arranged by states and then by counties, and then in, many cases by towns or districts. Some states also took their own census in odd years.. The 1850-1880 census records include a separate mortality census listing everyone who had died in the previous y ear. There are also slave census records for 1850 and 1860. M any researchers ignore these records completely, or only look at one or two r ecords for their family, assuming they have learned all the facts they need. Each family should be followed all the way back through the census every 10 y ears, picking up children, parents, brothers and sisters, in-laws and any other relatives that show up in the household or neighborhood. Fr om 1790-1840, the census only named the head of the household, and gave the number of people living in the house. From 1850 forward, each member of the household was named, with their sex, age, and place of birth. Each census became more complex, asking more questions, adding relationships, occupations, parents places of birth, number of years married, number of children given birth to, and other pertinent clues. St arting with the 1930 census, and working backward, you should look at y our family, taking down all the information given and looking at the neighboring families. Often, other family members are living nearby, and these need to be noted, also. If there are other families with the same surname, they are possibly parents, brothers, uncles and cousins. Johns father may be living next door to him, and in his household is grandma or grandpa. Viola!! You have three generations laid out on one or two pages. As you work your way through each census, you will find differences in the spellings of names, family members will come and go, and the family will move around the country. Each census taker had his own style. Some used only initials, some used only a first name r egardless of which name is preferred. S ometimes the correct name is used, the next time it will be a nickname. Ages also will change from census to census. U se this information as a guide and not as absolute fact. The first order of business is census work. I nformation gathered here will make the rest of your research much easier.

I have to use a remote control for her mouth. I cant talk live because of the fan in Felicias head because it gets so hot. I have to use prer ecorded material because a live microphone would pick up the fan. Ms. Rice loves to do Christmas shows and Felicia has a holiday outfit. This year, though, is a bit different. Ms. Rices husband had a heart attack and is unable to help her. What she needs for Christmas this year are some volunteers to help put on the shows. I t s hard to find volunteers to help, she said. I need at least three good helpers to do a professional show. They need to be able to give time at least once a week, be open to direction and be able to lift their arms over their heads for as much as seven minutes. One of my 11-year-old students thought he did it for 10 minutes and it was only about a minute and a half. Finding volunteers would be awesome. Ms. Rice has 300 puppets and she buys their clothes at Goodwill. S he is always on the lookout for size 3T. M y husband says theyre better dressed than he is, she said. Ms. Rice, who is a member of the Orlando Puppet Guild and the P uppeteers of America, is also an illusionist and magician. Puppetry, however, remains her first love. I do it as a puppet ministry, she said. God gave me a gift and r esources to purchase puppets. I do it to share the art and the message. she said.

22BR EVARD CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2011FOREVER YOU NG Common sense plays a huge role in the prevention of heartburn and indigestion, but all of that goes out the window when you sit down to a holiday dinner. Indigestion and heartburn come with over indulging over the holidays but holiday binging doesnt have to cause pain if you plan your meals using some digestive soothing herbs. Incorporating herbs into the meal provides natural relief preventing the gas and bloating that comes with being as stuffed as the turkey.H erbs can be added to vinegars for salad dressings; I like to make my vinegars about 3-4 weeks earlier for a stronger flavor using herbs like r osemary, garlic, basil, oregano, lemon grass or lemon peel in either wine vinegar or cider vinegar depending on the meal or the herbs. Y ou can also add herbs to soups, salads, vegetable dishes, in potatoes, stuffing, rubbed onto the turkey or even in deserts. F ennel can be used in breads rice, soups or in vegetables. In the book B ack to Eden Fennel is said to be useful for gas, an overly acidic stomach, cramps and spasms. B asil is good for reducing the acidity in tomato sauce that can cause gas and pain for some. Anise is great for an overly acidic stomach caused by eating too many sweets. My Grandmother must have known this because many of her cake and cookie recipes included Anise. G inger is one of the oldest known stomach healing remedies and one of my personal favorites. I always have crystallized Ginger in my kitchen and I munch on it throughout the day. Its a mild bitter so it helps to stimulate digestive enzymes making nutrients more absorbable plus its volatile oils have carminative actions helping to dispel gas and bloating. Ginger also tastes good in soups, vinegars, gingerbread, pies, cookies, ice cream and in ginger ale. R osemary helps to calm the digestive system reducing the amount of gas that is produced. It can be used in vinegars, potatoes, soups, breads and in butters. Cinnamon is a nice carminative herb that helps to calm the muscular lining of the digestive tract easing gas and bloating. Cinnamon tastes nice in ciders, pies, and cookies and mixed with sweet potatoes. S ome other herbs that could be used for preventing indigestion are coriander, oregano, thyme, marjor am, turmeric, cumin, sage, cloves and cayenne. And why not prepare a nice mulled cider using 1gallon cider, 1cup brown sugar, 2 teaspoons allspice, 1teaspoon whole cloves, 1teaspoon ground ginger and 1-3 cinnamon sticks simmered for at least 15minutes. After strained it can be served hot garnished with orange slices. Get creative this year with your meal, not only will it taste good but y our guests wont have regrets on how much they ate.

Generally, they leave Family TaeKwon-Do and F itness Center with acquired discipline and leadership skills, too. Mr. McCarthy took home the T op Martial Arts School Award, an international recognition given to three schools in the U nited States by United Martial Arts, on Nov. 11. He said many factors contributed to winning the award, including the quality of student progress, the number of black belts achieved by students and the 30 years of the center's establishment in the community. F amily TaeKwon-Do and Fitness Center has been running in its location at 3680 N. Wickham R oad since February. It was previously located off of Sarno Road. S tudents have followed Mr. Mc Ca r thy through the years, with some remaining at the center for 30 years. This school has produced lots of doctors, engineers, attorneys, pastors," he said. "Because it's been here so long, I've been able to see what it did. I've watched these kids grow up and transform." Mr. McCarthy said his current medical doctor has been a student at the center since he was 9 y ears old. He still trains with him today. The school teaches discipline and leadership," he said. "Students learn good listening skills, academic skills and how to treat people with respect and courtesy." Ev ery student is taught the same foundation of principles, which include loyalty, courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control and indomitable spirit, he said. The center is unique because it teaches a combination of three forms of defense and martial arts: taekwondo, an art from Ko r ea; jujutsu, a Japanese form and American-style boxing. C urrently, 40 black-belt students practice at the school. A black belt in martial arts symbolizes the highest degree of competence, and there are various levels of black belts one can achieve, Mr. McCarthy said. Mr. McCarthy is a grand master in taekwondo and has promoted many of his black belts to the master level.

Scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 3, the second annual "Reindeer Dash 5K and Jingle B ell Walk" is expected to attract more than 200 participants to the Viera area. The race, which is open to athletes of all ages and levels, will begin and end at the V iera Regional Park Community Center, taking participants past Viera High School and along Stadium Boulevard and Judge Fran J amieson Way. "I n our first year, we had more than 150 people come out," said Kristin Swenson, coordinator of the Viera Regional Park Community Center. "We saw some of those diehard runners to the people just looking to have fun and everyone in between."

W ith barely 5 watts of power, he talks to people in England, France, I celand and other countries. Mr. Fisher, a Palm Bay Police officer when he's not hamming it up, recently chatted with an Air C anada pilot who was cruising at 35,000 feet over North America. Mr. Fisher, who has also talked with people in Antarctica, keeps a sort of baseball card collection of the various "handles" with whom he has communicated around the globe. O ther ham radio operators haven't been limited by the bonds of Earth. Many of them have chatted with astronauts aboard the I nternational Space Station. In the modern age of the Internet, mobile phones and worldwide communications systems, the old-fashioned ham radio r emains relevant because it r etains its unique capability. When a 7.0 magnitude earthquake struck Haiti, and when a tsunami devastated Japan, ham r adio operators provided authorities with vital communications links, helping to reach victims and save lives. When natural catastrophes strike, they can disable communications towers and electric lines. B ut ham radios operate on air waves. "H urricane Katrina knocked down cell-phone towers and radio towers," Mr. Fisher said. "Its police departments had no communications because they had lost the r adio towers." On Dec. 3, the National Weather Se r vice on Croton Road will recognize Brevard County ham radio operators for their contributions during weather emergencies. On Dec. 10, the weather service will hold an open house, including a ham radio demonstration. Mr. Fisher, public information officer for the Platinum CoastLand preservation program receives national recognitionA program that serves to protect unique natural habitats in Brevard C ounty received the highest honor that the Natural Areas Association bestows. Br evard County's Environmentally Endangered Lands Program was awarded the Carl N. Becker S tewardship Award due to its achievements in managing the natural resources of protected areas. The award was presented at a banquet in Tallahassee on Nov. 3. M ike Knight, EEL program manager, said the program has been identified as a national model for implementing a long-term habitat and species preservation program. "(It) has been very successful in ensuring that land protection decisions are driven by sound scientific evaluation," he said. The EEL program began in 1990, following a referendum vote by Br evard citizens to pay tax for the acquisition and management of ecologically important lands. Over the last 20 years, the program has protected more than 24,000 acres of wildlife habitats and maintained 62 miles of nature trails, Mr. Knight said. Three environmental education centers are also financially supported through the referendum: the Enchanted Forest Sanctuary in Titusville, the Barrier I sland Center in South Melbourne B each and Sam's House in Merritt I sland. The newly opened Sam's House, located at 6195 N. Tropical Trail in M erritt Island, is the oldest-standing house in Brevard County, dating back to 1875, according to the EEL program's website. The site is a part of the Pine Island Conservation area, which features 900 acres of land and 5 miles of trails that can accommodate hiking, biking, fishing, canoeing and kayaking. Mr. Knight said early next year, the EEL program plans to open a 7mile hiking trail at the Fox Lake S anctuary in Titusville, located at 4400 Fox Lake Road. As a program designed to conserve natural resources, provide people with environmental education and create recreational opportunities for the public, the EEL pro-Hobbyists can reach people throughout the globeBy Dan Garciadgarcia@hometownnewsol.comSee R ADIO, A9By Meagan McGonemmcgone@hometownnewsol.com See LAND, A3Chamber singers to perform Dec. 11 and Dec. 12 ENTERTAINMENTB1 HOLIDAY CONCERT 688660

Hi lls police officer Bernard S estili responded when the building's alarm went off. He said the turkey flew into the window and was not thrown. "P r obably was roosted in one of the trees in this wooded area back here, got up this morning and went for his morning flight, and flew into the window," Sestili said. "Fighting back on Thanksgiving how ironic." From usnews.msnbc.msn.com : M an calls 911 when stolen boat runs out of gas C oast Guard officials in F lorida say they helped one seafood company with their big catch of the day: a 33y ear-old man who took the establishment's crab boat out for a ride. W illiam Hodges was cruising the Gulf of Mexico in the 17-foot boat when it ran out of gas and he called 911 for help, Coast Guard Petty Officer Michael De Nyse told the T ampa Tribune. A bout the same time H odges was calling for assistance, the I.C. Sharks seafood company of St. P etersburg called authorities to report a stolen 17foot crab boat. The Coast Guard arrived on the scene shortly after, as did deputies, De Nyse said. H odges was arrested and charged with grand theft. Fr om msnbc.msn.com: M an bursts into flames at train station An unidentified man burst into flames while waiting outside a train station in Sw eden, leaving police flummoxed, the GšteborgsP osten reported. W itnesses said the man was standing outside a music shop at the Gothenberg central train station when he suddenly caught on fire. "H e just stood there burning outside the shop," a witness told the paper. "After a while, he started screaming. There were a few people about, but they just watched him. I ran up to him, tore my coat off and managed to put the fire out together with another guy." The man, who sustained serious injuries, was taken to Gothenburg's Sahlgrenska hospital. Police have been at the hospital since the incident trying to piece together what happened. All we know is that it's a man. We have no knowledge of his identity, nor of his age or any motive or even the circumstances of the incident," Asa Anderson, a police officer, told the newspaper. The man has not been in a condition to speak, said the officer. "He is sedated and will probably remain under for another couple of weeks." P olice do not suspect foul play.

Akron City Prosecutor Doug Powley says he r eviewed the case against 42-year-old Bill Morrison and determined that, in his words, the "situation did not warrant a criminal conviction." M orrison was arrested O ct. 16 and spent a night in jail after a woman saw him with the ax under his coat and called 911. The ax had r ed paint on it to simulate blood. M orrison has been a Hollywood makeup artist and has worked on haunted house attractions. He told police he was taking the costume ax to sell to a friend.

Y ou could call it American IdolŽ for gifted students. Or y ou could call it by name: the Duke University Talent Identification Program (TIP). Holy Trinity Episcopal Academy participates in the Duke TIP program to identify academically gifted students in fourth, fifth and seventh grades. To qualify for Duke TIP, students must score in the 95th percentile or higher on one of the accepted standardized g rade-level subtests (the Lower School uses the Stanford Achievement Test). Those who qualify as gifted or talented are able to take the ACT EXPLORE Test, SAT and ACT years before students are typically able to do so. Additionally, students receive access to the Duke TIP summer program, as w ell as other opportunities beyond whats offered in the standard classroom. But Holy Trinity believes the greatest benefit is giving students early exposure to standardized testing, a critical part of the college application process. The program gives students the confidence to be successful with standardized testing because they are e xposed to the way questions are worded and formatted,Ž said Colette Dziadul, director of lower school guidance at Holy T rinity. Evelyn Cotton is a fifthg rade teacher at Holy T rinity. Her son Ross has participated in Duke TIP. It gives them an early insight into what the test format is and a chance to practice and retake the test for better results,Ž Ms. Cotton said. The practice is paying off.

Last January, Brevard Co mmunity College guard Louis Adams arrived in the U.S. from Senegal to play for East Mississippi C ollege. It so happened that BCC head coach Jeremy Shulman was an assistant coach there at the time. A Division 1 coach had connected him with S ports for Education and E conomic Development in Senegal Academy, which helps place the top players in Senegal to the U nited States. When Coach Shulman r eceived the job at BCC, he brought Mr. Adams with him to Brevard C ounty. P laying basketball in the U nited States has been an adjustment for Mr. A dams, who is the only international player on the BCC men's basketball team. While it is difficult being away from his family who still lives in Senegal, Mr. A dams has developed a new basketball family in Br evard County. "[Coach S hulman] he's like my father now. My teammates, they are like my brothers they are so nice." On the court, he has had to adjust from International Basketball Association Africa rules to N ational Junior College A thletic Association guidelines but Mr. Adams feels that, "I'm getting better every day. I'm learning a lot." This summer, he had the extraordinary opportunity to travel to his home country of Senegal, Africa, to try out for the S enegalese National Basketball Team. The team was preparing to play in the African international basketball association championships in August. After arriving in Senegal, the team flew to Paris to play several exhibition games against other African and European teams for training. The team played six exhibition games against teams, including the Central African Republic, M ali, Tunisia, Rwanda and the Belgium National T eam. They finished 3-3 with BCC guard Louis A dams contributing in three of those games. Mr. Adams, who was one of the youngest players to try out for the team, did not make the final cut, but is honored to have been given the opportunity to represent his country in athletics and considers it a beneficial experience. "I t was a great experience; doing the workouts I learned many things about basketball and life. I can't say anything bad about (it)." BCC Men's head basketball coach Jeremy Shulman, agrees. "I t was a great opportunity for Louisto get to play with the professional players that play in the NBA and play in Eu r ope all coming back to his home country to play for the team. (It's) just a great experience and anytime you have a chance to r epresent your own country in athletics it's pretty exciting, so when he got the invite we were all excited for him." This was not Louis A dams' first opportunity to represent his country, however. Three years ago, Mr. Adams played for the U18 Senegal National T eam in the FIBA National U18 Championships. He was the leading scorer at 11.1 ppg and led his team to the semi-finals where they lost to the eventual champion, the Egyptian N ational Team. Asked whether he would try out again in the future Mr. Adams replied, "Every time they call me I will." U ntil they do, which will certainly be in the near future thanks to his oncourt accomplishments, BCC students will have the opportunity to watch Louis and his BCC teammates try to defend their conference championship this season starting with their conference opener J an. 11, at Broward. L isa DeRuiter is a student in David Bradford's writing for mass communications class at BCC.

F ilm producers Ray and M igdalia Etheridge of Palm B ay are the first to admit that their films are never going to attract Tom Cruise or Reese Witherspoon, and they're never going to be up for an Oscar. B ut that doesn't mean that they don't love films and film-making. As a result, the couple will host the third annual "15 M inutes of Fame" Film Festival on Saturday, featuring short films from around the world. Mo re than 50 films, including films from England, Canada, Turkey, South Ko r ea and Australia are entered in the film festival at the Palm Bay Dollar Movies onMalabar Road, across from City Hall. The films, which range from 2 to 15 minutes, will be shown starting at 1 p.m. The film festival is a way to help aspiring filmmakers showcase their talents by getting some screen time, winning an award, and r esubmitting films to other festivals as they enhance their resumes. The Etheridges, both 60 and retired from regular careers, are spending their r etirement dabbling in creating short films while fostering young filmmakers who dream of a red carpet walk on Academy Awards night. The Etheridges say they'll never make money in filmmaking, but the process is its own reward. Their films cost $2,500 to produce compared to $100 million H ollywood blockbusters. The Etheridges adjust their living room backgrounds to fit a variety of scenes, and modify their garage to create a police station or a mountain cabin. They depend on budding film stars who want to hone their acting talent while serving as unpaid labor. S till, the Palm Bay couple will feel a sense of accomplishment on Saturday. "I t has been said that making a movie is like giving birth," Mr. Etheridge said recently. "So it's great to share the experience of filmmaking." M any of the films that poured into Palm Bay will not even get a screening, because the Etheridges chose 53 films from 150 entries a weeding out process typical of film festiv als. "V ideo has democratized the filmmaking industry," Mr. Etheridge said. "What's good is that everybody can make a video now, even with a cell phone. What's bad is that everybody can make a video now." Mr. Etheridge started in films as a sixth-grader in ru r al Oregon, where his family ran a general store. He did farm chores to purchase an 8mm camera at S ears and devised a minitheater above the family store. After attending the Southern California Film Institute, he edited film at KATUTV in Portland, Ore., and freelanced as a cameraman for TV stations in Colorado, K ansas, Georgia, Tennessee, C alifornia, and Honduras. He later joined the Telemundo Network and KWHY television in Los Angeles as director of photography.

F riday, December 2, 2011 A6 MelbourneHometown News Giving thanks for all our blessingsI know it's a little late for to come out on Friday, but it is too bad that your couldn't print the Proclamation of Thanksgiving as given by Abraham Lincoln, who declared that the last Thursday of the month of November should be r emembered and given thanks for all our blessings.Republicans are funnyEv ery time I try to tune into the Republican debate, I'm getting something that looks like "Saturday Night Live." I am wondering if the cable company has the channels messed up.Response to billionaires and Teabaggers'I am calling in response to "The billionaires created the T eabaggers" rant that I saw in Hometown News. I just think it is crazy. I just don't understand what this person doesn't understand. He is stating that billionaires have created this. I don't agree with that. The Tea Party is, and I'm not a Tea Pa r ty person, I'm just a regular person, but I believe the Tea Pa r ty is about reining in government and being accountable for all the debt we are in and balancing the budget of the Un ited States of America. And to this person who wrote about this, billionaires created the Teabaggers, I would just like to say to this person, what part of $15 trillion in debt don't you understand?L obbyists are running CongressI learned something new today while I was reading the paper. We have a fourth branch of government called lobbyists. C ongress is apparently caving to their lobbying about allowing all the frozen pizzas, salt and potatoes in school lunches because those companies lobbied Congress like crazy to "swort" O'bama's healthier lunches in school. I guess it is pretty clear who the elected officials listen to the big business that pays these lobbyists and the lobbyist themselves. So I guess we have to rewrite the Constitution.Response to Billionaires created the teabaggers'Once again the author presents a highly-researched and thoughtful rant laced with the repugnant (perhaps unwittingly, yet no the less derogatory) sexual slur teabagger. It's almost like reading an article in the Fact Free Media. I found it interesting that the only billionaires that were mentioned were the Koch brothers. They own the second largest privately-held energy company in the United States, employing 50,000 Americans. Pe r haps the author is offended that these people are not employed by the government. Oddly enough, they happen to be conservative. S ince the subject of billionaires has been broached, let's look at some others that the author may have missed. How about Brian Harrison, the CEO of Solyndra, the bankrupt solar panel company that took $535 million of taxpayer money in loan guarantees? He just happened to be a major donor and money bundler for the president. Or Jeffery Immult, the CEO of GE and one the president's job czars. He just closed GE's Medical Imaging Division and sent it to China. Or Warren Buffet, the "Oracle of Omaha," who keeps complaining that he isn't taxed enough, yet fails to write a check to the treasury on his o wn volition. W arren made his money through the federal estate tax. He sells life insurance policies that fund irrevocable life insurance trusts that replace wealth that is lost to families through the estate tax. And let's not forget George Soros, the currency speculator, who made $1.1 billion shorting the English pound. Wait until he shorts the U.S. dollar. He might become the first trillionaire. The list of Democrat billionaires goes on, but there is one more important point to make before taking up too much space. The reason that billionaires flock to Washington, D.C., is the same reason that Jesse James robbed banks. As he said, "That is where the money is." What we are witnessing is "crony capitalism," where billionaires use the power of government to take advantage of competitors in the marketplace. Editor's note: The quote you mentioned is widely attributed to 1950s bank robber Willie Sutton,although,according to snopes.com,Mr.Sutton claims the quote was made up by an enterprising reporter.All you do is complainA ctions speaks louder then words, yet all I mostly see when reading the rants and raves is that people complain. When you have a problem, you try to solve that problem. If y ou don't, the problem still remains. There are those of us who do try to make a difference, yet there are too many who just don't care. All they can do is complain. W ell it's time to make that difference. It's time to care about others instead of yourselves and get out there and do something to make that positive change. Tr y it. You might feel better knowing that you helped someone or you made a difference. If I, a poor disabled person, can get out there and make that difference, so can you. R emember, actions speaks louder then words.We read the rantsWe all read the rants, even if we don't read all the rest of the paper. I found this out a while back from everyone in the neighborhood and at a city council meeting. Then I asked to subscribed to the paper just for the rants. It probably should be expanded. Do you think?God does not approve of it It is in the Bible that God speaks against homosexuals. Pe r haps you who are not offended by this same-sex marr iage should pick up a Bible and read "1 Corinthians, Chapter 6 Verses 9-20." S ince these people will not be allowed in heaven, what makes you think God approves of same-sex marriages? Y es God did make marriage a union, but it was for the woman and man, not for woman and woman and not for man and man. Y ou can insult me all you want to, but this much I do know: when you go before God for your judgment, he will let you know that he is not for this same-sex marriage. You sure won't be able to argue with Him. Y ou sure won't be able to insult him by calling him bigoted and narrow-minded. Do you honestly think that God or myself or others who are against such things care about the statistics? Do you really believe that God is going to say "Wait a minute, let me check the statistics? W ith all my Christian heart, I doubt very much God is going to concern himself with what you say or any other person says concerning these statistics. S ince man turned his back and disobeyed God, people like you have this perverted way of thinking. It is not up to me or you. It is up to God when the time comes that all of this will be put to an end. The only way any of these people are going to be saved is to repent turn their lives over to Jesus and stop this way of life, because it is against the will of God for people to live this kind of life.Obamaville' encampments and Tea Party ralliesI hope that voters are taking note of which political party Got something to say?

That's the takeaway from meetings I attended around the state r ecently where PIP auto insurance fraud was the topic of discussion. PIP, or personal injury protection, is insurance coverage added to your overall auto policy that is intended to pay for medical and other expenses associated with a car crash, r egardless of fault. In F lorida, a minimum of $10,000 PIP coverage is r equired with each policy. We pay the highest auto liability insurance premiums in the nation, 56 percent more than other states. U nfortunately, Florida also leads the nation in staged accidents and questionable claims, which is why the number of crashes is going down, while the number of PIP claims and the cost of those claims is going up. After receiving a PIP fraud update during the cabinet meeting in Tallahassee, Jeff A twater, Florida's chief financial officer and I participated in listening meetings with Floridians in T allahassee, Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Tampa and M iami to hear their concerns about PIP fraud and ideas for a solution. We learned that if we do nothing, the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation predicts a 29 percent PIP pure premium increase each year. While the pure premium increase directly impacts the insurer, the costs get passed down to consumers through rate hikes, since insurers must raise rates to close the gap created by r apidly increasing fraud costs. In a time when we're working every day to get F lorida's economy back on its feet, the last thing we need is fraudsters to cause auto insurance premiums to skyrocket and raise the cost of living in this state, something I have vowed to prevent as governor. After listening to constituents affected by PIP fraud and their solutions to the problem, I announced four pillars that must be addressed to fix PIP: fraud prevention, litigation r eform, utilization and provider reform and accountability. My expectation is that we will provide significant PIP reform this legislative session. F lorida consumers have already paid more than $800 million for PIP fraud ov er the last several years and enough is enough. F lorida needs better protections for consumers, and I am committed to holding the line on runaway premiums in order to fulfill my promise to keep the cost of living low and get our state back to work. I encourage all Floridians with ideas for fixing PIP to email me at Rick.Scott@eog.myflorida.co m or call your House and S enate members and let them know that you expect them to support PIP reform so we can reduce the cost of auto insurance in Florida.

In N ew York, the confrontations between protesters and police have become increasingly combative and have cost area small businesses and vendors in the area more than $500,000 in damages and lost business. Much the same has been seen in Chicago, Boston, Oakland andNew Haven. The one great achievement of this movement will be that Americans will finally wake up and see Liberal Progressive D emocrats for what they really are mentally ill misfits, potheads andclueless drum beaters duped by Obama. M ost have beenbrain washedin a failed public school and "higher" education system. They are trying to fashion an ideological cover for their o wn empty, confused and unproductive lives. J ust like the workers who were used by Lenin during the R ussian Revolution, these airheads are being used by George Soros, Obama and organized labor thugs to advance their Marxist agenda. The irony of their "nonviolent" calls to shut down Wall St r eetis too rich for words. The "Obamaville" movement has virtually assured the defeat of Progressive Liberalism in our next election.Tax holiday' does not workM embers of the Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction, also known as the "Super Committee," are hopeful that a repatriation tax holiday allowing domestic companies to claim profits made overseas at reduced tax rates will boost the economy by encouraging capital investment and job growth here in the United States. A similar proposal was enacted in 2004. The tax holiday proposal did not increase employment, and in most cases reduced employment in the years following. Fixing the problem and ending the Postal Service's crisisS en. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) recently introduced the Postal Se r vice Protection Act (S. 1853), a bill that would go a long way toward resolving the United States Postal Service's financial crisis. S en. Sanders' bill identifies the underlying causes of the P ostal Service's dire financial situation and presents methods for resolving the crisis. It offers solutions. Se veral other bills currently pending in Congress would destroy much of the Postal Service and American life. The Postal Service Protection Act would: Fix the Postal Service's immediate financial crisis by allowing the USPS to recover the overpayments it made to its retiree pension funds both the $7 billion overpayment to the Federal Employees Retirement System and the $50 billion to $75 billion overpayment to the Civil Service Retirement System. In addition, the bill would eliminate the unique requirement that the USPS pre-fund 75 years worth of future retiree health benefits in just 10 years. No other agency or company in America is required to pre-fund these benefits. Establish new ways to generate revenue by ending theRantsF rom page A6 See R ANTS, A8

prohibition on USPS providing non-postal services, such as providing notary services, new media services and issuance of licenses; contracting with state and local agencies to provide services; shipping wine and beer, and allowing the USPS to provide services that mail systems in many other countries provide, including digital services. Create a blue-ribbon commission composed of entrepreneurs, representatives of labor and small businesses to provide recommendations on how the Po stal Service can generate new revenue to succeed in the 21st century. Prevent the closing of ru r al post offices by giving the Postal Regulatory Commission binding authority to prevent closures based on the effect on the community and employees. The bill would also prohibit USPS from considering whether a post office is turning a profit when making the decision to conduct a feasibility study for closure. Protect six-day delivery. Protect mail-processing facilities by requiring strict standards for delivering first-class mail. S urprise and gratitude were the two emotions that Mike C onnors said first came to mind last month, after hearing his name called at the N ational Association for Pupil Tr ansportation Conference in Cincinnati. The director of transportation for Brevard Public Schools, Mr. Connors was named the 2011 Administrator of the Year by "School Bus F leet" Magazine, a national publication designed to inform the school transportation industry of safety and maintenance issues, regulatory news, training best practices and other topics. "F irst of all, I was totally shocked and surprised when my name was called, and then to stand on stage in this grand ballroom, with all my colleagues in transportation from all over the country in attendance, was truly amazing," said Mr. Connors, who just celebrated his 12th year with Brevard Public Schools. F or the past 38 years, the A dministrator of the Year award has been presented to directors of transportation at the school-district level, as w ell as at the state level, who show exceptional performance in their district, said Thomas McMahon, executive editor of "School Bus Fleet" M agazine. "M ike's colleagues and the industry leaders we contacted spoke very highly of him, citing his leadership skills and his dedication to providing safe transportation for Breva rd 's students," Mr. McMahon said. "He runs an efficient operation with a well-maintained fleet that is one of the 100 largest school bus fleets in the nation." Mr. McMahon also commended Mr. Connors for coming up with a plan to save the Brevard Schools District $1.2 million in 2009, which also led to his being selected. "H e added 15 minutes between elementary and secondary bell times, which allowed the district to reduce its number of route buses," Mr. McMahon said. The process for selecting an A dministrator of the Year va r ies from year to year, Mr. Mc M ahon said, but this year, the magazine asked for nominations from its readers. Then, the staff received input from colleagues and leaders in the industry in order to make its decision. Pr ior to beginning his tenure in Brevard County, Mr. C onnors served as director of transportation for Escambia C ounty in Pensacola for seven y ears. In his current position, Mr. C onnors is responsible for the district's 408 school buses, which transport more than 29,000 students each school day, as well as 557 transportation employees, including 455 bus drivers. The Brevard County School D istrict transportation department is currently the 52nd largest fleet in the nation and the 10th largest fleet in F lorida, Mr. Connors said. In addition to serving as transportation director in Breva r d, Mr. Connors also served the past two years as president of the Florida Association for Pupil Transportation and is past chairman of the F lorida Delegation for the N ational Congress on School Tr ansportation. A 25-year veteran of the U.S. Air Force, Mr. Connors and his wife, Margaret, have two children and two grandchildren. He is also an avid golfer. While he is extremely grateful for receiving the national award, Mr. Connors said he would not have been recognized for his efforts without the help and support of the district's school board, school bus drivers, technicians, transportation staff, supervisors and entire administration staff. This award is given out as an individual award, but I am not solely responsible because I have such a terrific group of people working with me in transportation, who have made this all possible," Mr. Connor said. "They have each had a tremendous impact on what led to this honor." F riday, December 2, 2011 A8 MelbourneHometown News www.durangolf.comwww.durangolf.com70 32 Stadium Pkwy. Viera 70 32 Stadium Pkwy.

studied Business Administration at Florida International University in Miami and worked as an accountant. After the Etheridges met and married in 1997, they developed a film-making partnership. Of course, with numerous films distributed worldwide, the competition is fierce. There are literally millions of movies out there, if y ou include YouTube," Mr. E theridge said. "Today people can buy a video camera for just a few dollars. It's harder to find an audience." I ndependent filmmakers like the Etheridges are at a technological disadvantage, too. "A udiences have become so sophisticated and so accustomed to computer generated images that they expect something to blow up or morph into a monster within the first five minutes, or they get bored," Mr. E theridge said. "S o it's harder than ever for independent filmmakers. But everybody who is anybody started out making films like these, including S teven Spielberg and Francis Ford Coppola." Mr. Etheridge said lowbudget films cost $3 million to produce, and average films cost $12 million to $15 million. M igdalia Etheridge says H ollywood is a far cry from the independent film world. "W e give our actors a $25 gas allowance, and we serve them lunch," she said. B ut a good film is a good film. Movies like "The Blair Wi tch Project" and "Paranormal Activity" rose to Hollywood as independent, low-budget productions. The Etheridges say they love making movies, even if their roles are just script writing, casting or camerawork. "F ilm festivals are to independent films what the A cademy Awards are to mainstream films," Mr. E theridge said. "We absolutely love the process of making a film, and it's a thrill to show it to an audience." W ithin independent filmmaking, competition is fierce. Worldwide, there are 5,000 film festivals, Mr. E theridge said. The prestigious Sundance F ilm Festival receives about 15,000 entries annually, and shows "100 to 150 films," Mr. E theridge said. "O ur main goal is to share films with people," Mrs. E theridge said. "When we came to Brevard County, people said, There are not enough cultural events here.' Well, here we are." The "15 Minutes of Fame" F ilm Festival will present awards in 14 categories, including best Florida film, screenplay, drama, comedy, directing, cinematography and editing. A dmission is $2. A hand up not a hand outI've been waiting for Obama's "redistribution of w ealth" policies to hit me in the wallet. I work for a local corporation and just completed our health care re-enrollment process. In the plan's literature is the following quote as to the reason for our plans cost increase. The increase has been driven by many factors, including the price of health care reform (e.g. up to age 26 coverage for children)" This "reform" that includes coverage for 26 year-old "children" will cost me and my family $728 more in premiums alone in 2012. So thank you Mr. President, for looking out for the middle-class. I use these facts to highlight a larger point and that is to draw the stark contrast between the liberal and conservative view points and their approach to the country's problems. The liberal view is to hand the 26-year-old a fish so he can sustain himself on mommy and daddy's couch while someone else subsidizes his laziness. This fosters the entitlement mentality we see today. You want to live your life that way, fine, less competition for my kids. But when I now have to subsidize this? I have a problem. The conservative view is to show the 26-year-old where to buy a fishing rod and teach him to learn the skills himself to catch the fish. This is called education, training and hard work such that at the age of 26 junior has incentive to get a good job with good health benefits. Hardly a new concept. Amateur Radio Society, said on some days, traffic on his r adio may be sparse. B ut on other nights, the r adio crackles with conversation. When I turn on the radio, it's like going fishing, because you never know what you're going to catch," Mr. Fisher said. "You might start it up and there's just nothing biting. You might spend a couple of hours on the radio and come home with an empty bucket. "B ut you might go out and, holy cow, they're jumping all over the place. Every time I throw the line out, I get a bite," he said. Mr. Fisher said that whether man communicated with smoke signals, the M orse Code telegraph, the party-line telephone, or today's mobile phones and computerized e-mail, man has always had the need to communicate. That's why ham radios are as much of a hobby as a vital link. Communicators like Mr. Fisher enjoy talking with other hobbyists around the world. "H am radio, first and foremost, is a hobby," Mr. Fisher said. "There are 700,000 amateur radio licensees in the United States alone. Breva rd C ounty is home to nearly 3,000 licensees. "I have a ham radio at home, in my car and in my patrol car," he said. "I can set one up on the beach and talk across the ocean on five watts, which we call barefooting." Mr. Fisher marvels: "In a way, ham radios are the original wireless technology." So where did the name "H am" come from? Mr. Fisher said professionals who sent Morse C ode messages became highly skilled at it, but amateurs who sent similar signals tended to whack away at the telegraph in a hamhanded way. They called the amateurs ham-fisted operators, and it was a derogatory term," Mr. Fi sher said. "The irony is that nobody uses Morse C ode anymore except for hams."

It' s tree time again! To keep y our tree fresh cut some off the bottom before putting it in a stand. Even though some was cut when it was purchased, it probably has sealed up with sap. U se lukewarm water for the first time to which you have added one aspirin for a tree up to 7 foot and 2 for a larger tree. Add cold water once or twice a day thereafter. If the water is gone the trunk will seal and the tree will die. I'd like to share with you how I handled the "I wants" that go on and on with children at Christmas. I explained that many children throughout the world didn't have anything so moms and dads who could afford it sent S anta money for toys their children wanted so then S anta could give presents to the poor children who had nothing. Now you can negotiate, choices can be made and there will be no disappointments since they know how much money you can afford to send Santa. M akes sense, doesn't it? C ommon sense tells us that S anta doesn't have time to set up a tree and he certainly doesn't have time to wrap gifts especially in the same paper your kids saw you buy! In my family we celebrate both Christmas Eve and Christmas day. Of course we do, we're Italian! How else can we become martyrs? G ifts are exchanged on Christmas Eve both to family members and the kids. Pr esents to be exchanged are wrapped and placed under the tree. Since Santa hasn't come yet "nobody" knows what he will bring. Try my way, it worked for us through four kids and they kept the faith longer. By the way, (God forgive me), when my kids said their friends' parents told them otherwise, I told my kids they (the parents) were liars. No w that I have confessed my sin let's get to the recipes. This week we'll cover some delicious cookie recipes. You can mix up most of the batters now, freeze them and when baking time is here, how easy will your life be? Be aware that when I r ecommend Smart Balance butter substitute, which works great in place of butter or margarine I'm not talking LIGHT; it is too soft and will not work. Enjoy, see you next week!

He has set a tone of success for musical achievement by giving financial support, scheduling flexibility and verbal encouragement to the school's students, community and teachers. The results are an environment where music education is v alued and student achievement flourishes. It is through this type of leadership that has enabled L.B. J ohnson Middle School to maintain the Florida Music Demonstration School status since 2005. Mr. Fish will receive the Secondary Administrator of the Year A ward during the FMEA Clinic/Conference at the Tampa Bay C onvention F or more information,call (321) 633-1000,Ext.796 or email davis.christine@brevardschools.org.HomeCare of Merritt Island named to HomeCare EliteNHC HomeCare of Merritt Island has announced that it has been named to the 2011 HomeCare Elite, a compilation of the top-performing home health agencies in the United States.

This week, I thought I would take another trip down memory lane using Facebook. It took me a while to jump on the Facebook bandwagon. I didn't really see a need for it. I decided to check it out when I got a friend request a few years back from a coworker and set up my account. I uploaded a picture, filled out the profile and added a couple of friends, and that was it. F or a long time, nothing happened. I didn't give F acebook a second thought. My F acebook friends were a few people that I saw every day, so I only logged in maybe once every six months and, frankly, didn't see what all the hub-bub was about. Then something funny happened. I opened my email one day and there was a F acebook friend request waiting for me, and the name r ang a bell. I thought to myself as I clicked the link, "W o w! I used to know a guy by that name back in high school." To my wonder, it turned out that's exactly who it was. I want to point out my new F acebook friend wasn't someone I used to pal around with as a kid; I just remember him from school. But here he was, sitting in my inbox. I had no idea of the levels of nostalgia I was about to unleash in the next few months as I clicked the accept" button, but the cascade started when I went to check out my new friend's list of friends. He had 60 or so listed, but as I started scrolling down, I started recognizing names going back to high school and even grammar school. That morning, I probably recognized half of a dozen names from way back and sent them all friend requests. Almost immediately, I started getting replies: "OMG, are you the same Sean Mc Ca r thy that grew up in Wo r cester, Mass.?" and "Wow! We we re just talking about y ou!" I even got a "Do I know y ou? I think you're looking for my grandfather." In the next few days, I found myself logging onto F acebook on a daily basis, and it seemed there was always some new connection. As my name started getting added to friends' lists, other old friends started recognizing me and sending requests. As I accepted more and more friend requests, I found myself browsing different friend lists and profiles. Almost overnight, I went from barely thinking about F acebook to browsing profiles for hours looking for old friends and getting reconnected. In the past eight months, I've been talking with old friends displaced by thousands of miles and decades of time. Status updates started to really be interesting; it's like there's this newsreel running up-to-the-minute commentaries highlighting what's going on in the lives of the people I grew up with. P lus, thanks to Facebook, I am back in touch with several dear friends who I had lost touch with. I am glad I joined Facebook. Sure, they are under criticism for their privacy policies, but I understand those concerns are being addressed, and I'm not worried about them. W ith that said, I invite you to be my friend. Visit www.Facebook.com/TheM ouseWhisperer (no hyphens) and I'll see you online.

C all (321) 574-0520.Not long ago, I sent a friend of mine two samples of some articles I had written and asked him for feedback. This particular person is someone I have known for w ell over 30 years, so I knew he would be honest with me. I found his response r ather interesting. He liked the piece I was certain he would not, and the sample I was certain he would enjoy he had a difficult time with. When I asked him why he didn't like the second piece, he said, "It's not the writing. It 's all this stuff about a personal God, and having a r elationship with God. I just don't buy it." I thought about his comments for a long time. What a lonely place it must be to think we have to face life all alone. I can't imagine how difficult life would seem if I believed the only tools I could rely on we re my own wits and ego. J esus said, "The truth shall set you free." I believe this is an invitation to remember our divine connection and to know that whatever we face in life, we are never alone. We can't be alone because our creator is closer than our very breath. There is a wonderful parable about a young boy who is obsessed with seeking the truth. He leaves home at an early age and travels the world to find it. F inally at 75, feeling defeated, he decides to return home. When he opens the door, there is Truth patiently waiting for him. The obvious message is we need not look outside for the truth; it resides within each of us. I believe that we are all divine emanations and that Spirit is always available to us. My church teaches that God responds to us as we open to God, so that all prayers are answered to the degree that we are willing to invite God into our lives. In other words, a personal, warm and loving relationship with God is always available to everyone. How ever, we must make the first move. The philosopher Soren K ierkegaard wrote, "We must take the risk in believing in something that may not be provable we must take a chance, take a r isk, a leap of faith, of belief and of commitment." We must put our doubts aside and allow God into our hearts. The surest way to discover what is real and what is an illusion is to develop a r elationship with God. Only then can we know what is authentic. I have often had people come and tell me how their lives are filled with pain and that they have lost their faith. When times are difficult, it is easy to forget our connection to Spirit and to strike out and blame the world, friends, family, fate, luck or even God. Making the decision to have a r elationship with God enables us to see beyond our momentary discomfort and to know that it is within our power to move from fear to peace, anger to love and victimization to selfsufficiency. Ernest Holmes wrote, There is a power for good in the universe available to everyone and you can use it." Why not begin today to use this power? Invite God into your life and see what happens. Think about it, you can go on trusting yourself or the one who made the mountains, oceans and sun and stars. For me it's an easy choice. How about you?

S leighbells ringing and White Christmases are the stuff of memories, but not of life in Florida. S till, while it's fun to recall holidays past, it's also fun to make new traditions with our "Florida families," as one expert described it. In this issue, there is a serious story about coping with the holidays. For many, far from families, perhaps financially challenged, the holidays are not what they once were. If there has been a loss, this time of year can be very difficult. Experts from area hospitals and counseling centers have suggestions for making the holiday season a peaceful time and a time of hope.

This photo was taken at the dedication ceremony for Ben Abramowitz's father at Fort Monmouth.Photo courtesy of Ben Abramowitz F amily shows generations of service MELBOURNE The story of Chanukah is the story of religious tolerance and the fight for freedom. Mo re than 2,000 years ago, a small band of Jewish fighters fought the much larger Syrian Greek army. U nder the leadership of Mattathias and his eldest son, Judah M accabee, the Jews reclaimed the T emple in Jerusalem and won the r ight to practice their religion. F our generations of the Ab r amowitz family know something about defending freedom, as w ell. Ben Abramowitz of Indian River Colony Club in Melbourne is the second generation of soldiers his family has produced. H is father, Reuben, came from Uk ra ine by way of Ellis Island. When Reuben's father, a union organizer, was murdered in 1907, y oung Reuben enlisted in the Army to support his mother and siblings. When he retired as commandant of the European Signal School, the field house at Fort Monmouth in N ew Jersey and the Signal Center at Fo rt Go r don, Ga., were named in his honor. B en Abramowitz was born at Fo rt M onmouth and always knew he would be a soldier. "I was born on an army post," he said. "I grew up during the Second World Wa r. My father was then a noncommissioned officer and I lived in Germany until I was 13. I always wanted to be a soldier. I respected what he did. I was one of the few who knew what he wanted to do at two." In 1947, while the family was still in Germany, young Ben had his bar mitzvah in the synagogue his father had the German government r ebuild after the war. Just as in the Chanukah story, the synagogue was r ededicated for Jewish worship. B en Abramowitz went on to study at Virginia Tech and was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the infantry. He applied for flight school and was accepted. He was stationed near Fort Riley, K an., and a rabbi in a nearby community invited him to a Passover S eder. He met Irene in April and they were married in June. B en Abramowitz went on to have a distinguished military career, with two tours in Vietnam and service at the Pentagon. He eventually taught leadership and ethics courses at the Command and General Staff College. That was not, however, his greatest legacy. By Shelley KoppelAssociate news editor See SERVICE Page 20

They are horses used in equestrian therapy, helping people with developmental, physical and emotional disabilities to find success and joy in a world that often pushes them aside. Ha r mony Farms is the brainchild of Pam Rogan, who started it with a friend in 1992. "I mov ed here from New York in 1991," she said. I had worked for Hartford Insurance for 20 years and I didn't have to work. I was looking to do volunteer work and I wanted to work with children and animals. We felt there were no alternative therapy programs for people with disabilities." Ha r mony Farms is a non-forprofit organization that provides equine-assisted therapy and activities for people with disabilities. U nder very strict safety guidelines, ri ders of all ages learn to challenge themselves. The youngest rider at the farm is 4 and the oldest, 85. Clients are referred to Harmony Fa r ms by physicians and other health care providers. "I n 1992, you were hard-pressed to get a doctor to sign a release," Ms. R ogan said. "Now, the majority of clients come from physicians and therapists."

7BR EVARD CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2011FOREVER YOU NG Holidays present challenge for many VIERA For many people, the holiday season brings to mind family and friends, the aroma of baking, the fun of buying and wrapping presents for the kids. For many in Florida, families are far away, money may be tighter and it sometimes just doesn't seem worth it to prepare when it's just for one or two. "I t can be difficult for seniors," said Kathy Ridner, care manager for One Senior Place in Viera. "Brevard C ounty is a beautiful place to retire, but families are fragmented. An aging senior starts to have health problems and can't travel. They find themselves alone. Finances contribute to the challenge." F or those who must celebrate the holidays alone, Ms. Ridner said that changing traditions can help. "Y ou can make new traditions," she said." Invite the neighbors. You can scale back decorations and meal preparation. Have carry-out or go to a restaurant. Reach out to neighbor and church communities. If you're in a senior community, there are activities. Redefine the definition of family. Family comes in all shapes and sizes." Ms. Ridner mentioned a couple who lived on a block with a young family. The children's grandparents lived out-of-state, so the couple became "adopted grandparents" and shared events with them. Ms. Ridner also said that volunteering is a good day to cope. "I t feels better to do something for someone else," she said. "Get an angel from a tree, donate a coat or food, serve a meal at a soup kitchen if yo u' re up to it," she said. "I t' s hard sometimes. People get a little bit stuck because it feels sad and it feels and looks different. Start to find joy in smaller things. It's not about spending $200 on gifts. It's about the feeling and the thought. It 's shifting the definition of what makes us feel joy." Ma r ilyn Cromer counsels those dealing with grief at VITAS Innovative Hospice, a community partner of One Senior Place. She said that it's important to plan for the holidays, especially for those who have suffered a recent loss. "S et realistic goals," she said. "U nderstand that this year will be different. Allow others to provide support. Of you did all the running around in the past, give yourself permission to ask for help." While you may not be able to do all the things you used to do, it's important to establish new traditions. "Try to avoid canceling the holidays," she said. That will make you feel worse. "If you always had 20 for dinner, perhaps does a breakfast buffet or go out to eat. Help someone else. There are senior places that offer a meal. Help others who don't have a place to go." "I f this is the first time around for the holidays after a loss, honor the memory of the loved one. You can light a candle or talk about special memories. The first year after a significant loss, the first holidays, anniversaries and birthdays are intense. Think in advance of how to honor and r emember the loved one. That tends to establish a tradition. Do it again next year." One idea Ms. Cromer suggests to children and adults is a memory box. "Y ou can decorate it and write little notes about the loved one or put in photos or things symbolic of them. P ull it out if you're feeling lonely. If granddad loved to go fishing with y ou, the memory of going fishing may give a moment of pleasure. O ther suggestions include honoring the person's memory with a donation to a favorite charity or doing simple things that gave you pleasure as a child, like stringing popcorn or making construction paper rings to decorate a tree or the house. It 's important to understand that even with planning, a loss is sad. "G ive yourself permission to feel said," Ms. Cromer said. "Sadness during the holidays is so pronounced because we see so many looking happy. It's OK to be sad or angry. We try to say there's no one way to grieve that's right. It's what works for today." F or those wishing for help in coping during the holidays,there are support groups that deal with loss.For more information,call Kathi Ridner at (321) 751-6771 Or Marilyn Cromer at (321)752-2534.

Moore's law, is the effect coined back around 1970 by Cal Tech professor and entrepreneur Ca rv er Mead, when observing that the size and price of a transistor halved every two years. The effect of this law' has brought us everything from the iphone and Droid, to huge flat screen entertainment centers that festoon our walls with ever greater frequency, offering life like, life sized color images and the sounds of all things imaginable.Du r ing this same period, hearing aids have evolved from the rather simple class a, b, or d amplifiers of our parent's time, to ultra miniature, open platform, audio computers. The top of class today are even equipped with broadband, ultra low powered radio transceivers piggy backed right on board, making them capable of connections with such as your TV, cell phones, lap tops and other electronic devices. As this inter device communications capability proceeds with the logical development of both operational and interface software, one of the key ease of use restraints currently plaguing our `entire industry, that of issuing programing and operational instructions to the devices, will be greatly simplified. S oon, several manufactures will be offering devices with programing applications utilizing existing, open platform programing tools and available RF technology. This will allow discreet, secure, wireless access, programing, communications with and control over all manner of ear level devices, all with inherent audio and visual signal processing capabilities of a degree only dreamed of in the past. As this newer, more consumer friendly equipment becomes available, so to will the opportunity to reach more and more consumers as that all important cost/benefit ratio continues to move further in the consumer's favor. The FDA recognized this evolution in equipment in 2009 when they established a new classification of products known as personal sound amplification products and established for their sale outside of the normal and highly r egulated hearing aid delivery system, provided they aren't sold as hearing aids, or to correct a hearing loss. Fu r ther changes and challenges to the current delivery system were in evidence last month when the largest health insurance provider in the country, United Health Care announce that they had purchased their own hearing aid manufacture and were going to start offering consumer direct sales, with prices ranging from $449 an ear to $999 and ear, without the r equisite visit to any professional, or licensee, excepting their phone, or I nternet screening system. While this announcement drew immediate warning from "The Better Hearing I nstitute" regarding do it your self hearing aid fitting, it drew much more than that, in the form of a cease and desist letter from the attorney for the I nternational Hearing Society (IHS) and angry letters threatening further actions, by the Academy of Doctor's of A udiology (ADA and the American A cademy of Audiology (AAA). How ever, regardless of how loud these professional associations howl, the handwriting is on the wall. Greater consumer choice, value and hearing are here now for those who want to go through the current system and more and more avenues are opening to the consumer everyday that make better hearing easier and less expensive for everyone.10BR EVARD CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2011FOREVER YOU NG Tr ends and opportunities in consumer hearing By R.D.

11BR EVARD CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2011FOREVER YOU NG Christmas pig roast about family as much as food For me Christmas has always been a time to enjoy family and lots of good food. As I look back over the years I must say I have fond memories of each and every one. B ut a few standout. One that I treasure happened in the middle 1980's when my younger sister Linda, her husband and two sons moved west of DeLand to a little spot called Paisley. If you are not familiar, it is a very small rural outpost about five miles west of the S t. Johns River that is completely surrounded by the huge Ocala N ational Forest. Their new home was situated on a very large and hilly lot. At that time, Linda and I had lots of extended family living around C entral Florida and we decided to try and get them all together for a holiday pig roast. As roast master it was my job to go up to Pierson to buy a fully dressed hog of nearly 100 pounds. It was fun going to the country slaughterhouse to pick out our pig and spend a few moments with the man who had raised it. At my insistence it was to be the men who would do the cooking. F irst, I dug a long shallow pit and covered it with steel bars. Some of the others went into the forest and brought back truck after truck of hard wood. The night before Christmas Eve, we began by building a giant bonfire. As the wood burned down we shoveled the hot coals under the pig and readied ourselves for a long night. To do this job properly the hog must be slow cooked with lots of love and attention. The key to the whole thing would be my secret recipe barbeque sauce of which I concocted about four gallons (you can never have too much sauce). As the night began, my helpers numbered about 10 but as Linda's w ell-fortified homemade eggnog started to take effect, the men began to look for a spot to curl up and nap. Around midnight the cracklins (pig skin, for you city folk) r eached crispy perfection and we all eagerly dipped them in my delicious sauce and ate our fill. H aving regained our senses somewhat, a TV-VCR set up was brought out and we all watched one of the earliest versions of "A Christmas Ca r ol." As we hissed and booed Scrooge and cheered for Bob Cr atchit and Tiny Tim we poured whiskey all around, foregoing the eggnog this round. No w, for a big time pig roast like this to be successful the animal must be turned regularly. That task r equired four men to each grab a leg and make the flip. Unfortunately, by 2 a.m. there was only a quarter of that number awake me and I was becoming undependable. A couple hours later, my first cousin Randy woke up long enough to stagger over and fall onto the picnic table, dumping out the entire four gallons of prize-winning barbecue sauce. As the sun came up, we were all asleep and the pig was getting cold. Along about 10 a.m. of Christmas Eve we were able to give the pig a couple hours of concentrated attention and the part that wasn't burned seemed to be cooked pretty well. That afternoon all of the womenfolk began to show up with their delicious side dishes and desserts. That evening we all ate outdoors and most agreed that the hog hadLAND LINESD AN SMITH See LANDLINES Page 16 Scott L.

12BR EVARD CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2011FOREVER YOU NG Change is good! (usually) Times change, dress changes, Ev en THE CHANGE' has changed. I know some of us (usually the men-folk) yearn for the Old Days' when things were simpler (For them!) but I don't think I would have fared very well at all. I cannot picture myself in a woolen bathing suit r ushing home from taking the kids to the beach so I can have a homecooked lunch waiting for my husband when he gets home from the polls while fighting hot flashes During prohibition. F amilies have certainly changed; when I go to my grandson's high school football games I find myself surrounded by my son, his younger children, his beautiful new wife, her children, my ex-daughter-in-law, her new husband, their new daughter and my son's ex-mother-in-law. Each and every one of us is standing, y elling and slapping each other on the back when our team scores. M ost symptoms of THE CHANGE' are now treatable to a certain extent, shortening the late night hours spent fanning ourselves with the freezer door considerably. H olidays may be one constant in our lives, but the way we celebrate has certainly come a long way. When my children were young we usually had the big family day at our house. Due in large part to the fact that I was usually absent from the family meetings where location was decided, my husband's family would converge in the morning, cousins usually began running and screaming in all directions just about the time M acy's parade began, we would be finishing the last piece of pie (for the moment) just as the game came on, then coffee and more pie during half time. As my family aged and grew with the addition of "significant others", the arrival of my grandchildren and new sets of in-laws, we re-invented our celebrations as necessary. I began serving a brunch on the holidays. We all brought something for brunch and my children could spend half the day with us then be free to enjoy turkey and trimmings with the other side of their families. C ontrary to popular opinion, (usually from the other side of the families) I did not arrange things this way to have the pleasure of my grandchildren's company when they were awake and bright in the morning, not tired and cranky later in the afternoon. Nor was it my intention to be the Grammy who loves them the most by filling them with hand/turkey cookies or gingerbread men just to send them to their other grandparents. (But I have to admit the words "favoritist Grammy in the world!" did spread a special kind of warmth throughout my sleepdeprived soul, as did the nap that I was now able to grab later in the afternoon). B ut still we grew. None of us have homes large enough to accommodate 45 plus people and still have room for all the cousins (second and third generation now) to run and scream, so we once again became harbingers of change. O ur latest change-vention is a huge gathering in a nearby park.

Right at the top of the hill on Linda's property grew a Florida cedar tree over 30 feet tall. Each family had brought a strand of colored lights from their own tree and we strung them on the big cedar. When it was completely dark we plugged it in amid "oohs" and "aahs." Later we we re told it could be seen for miles. Of course, the women began to sing Christmas songs and the hungover men tried to join in as w ell as they could. It was certainly a Christmas to remember. S adly, my sister Linda, who was a true baby boomer (born in 1947), passed away in 2003.

17BR EVARD CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2011FOREVER YOU NG I magine getting a phone call informing you that someone has used your name and Social Security number to apply for a credit card, or receiving a collection notice in the mail for a delinquent account that isn't yours but is attributed to your name and home address. Every day, consumers find out someone is illegally using their personal information to make purchases and open new financial accounts, like credit cards and loans. U ndetected, identity fraud can lead to difficulties in applying for a mortgage, loan, new credit card or bank accounts even if you've had great credit for years. The road to recovery may be a long, aggravating journey, especially when you don't catch fraud immediately. Last year, 8.1 million adults were the victims of identity fraud, according to a recent Javelin St r ategy & Research Identity Fraud Survey. He re are some tips to help protect yourself from an identity nightmare: Online: When creating passwords, don't use information that easily could be linked to you like your birth date, Social Security number, phone number, or the names of family and pets. Using a mix of numbers, letters, and characters to create your password makes it harder for others to guess. Change your passwords every 30 days, and use unique passwords on each site you access. Whether you're providing financial information for a loan or placing an order online, be sure the site you're using is secure. Look for a URL that begins with "https:// and has a "closed padlock" symbol in the lower right-hand corner of your browser. U sing and regularly updating anti-virus and anti-spyware software on your computer can also help to safeguard your information from identity theft. Ne ver email personal information, such as account numbers or your social security number, to anyone, not even to yourself.

18BR EVARD County December 2011FOREVER YOU NG On a typical day, Ms. Rogan and her team of certified therapeutic riding instructors might have an autistic child, a child with Down syndrome and two with cerebral palsy. The lesson incorporates games, therapy, stretching and a fun period," Ms. Rogan said. "It's one of the better activities for autism. There is social interaction with the horse and the riding instructor. "I t requires attention and focusing while they are learning how to r ide. You see parents in tears when they see the child giggle. They've never heard that." There are special challenges for r iders with physical disabilities. "I f they've been in a wheelchair all day, there's a back rest and a foot r est," Ms. Rogan said. "Few muscles hold them. We take them out of the chair and put them on a horse. There is no back or arm rest and they have to start using core muscles. "I f they can't sit, we use a waist belt. The only type of disability we can't handle is a quadriplegic. We hate to turn people away." F or Pam Rogan, who has loved horse all her life, this is a dream come true. She grew up in Brooklyn and asked for a horse every Christmas and birthday. Now she has them and she has the joy of seeing them help children smile. When you see an autistic child hug you and thank you, you can't r eplicate it anywhere," she said. "We see it every day. Horses don't judge and they don't ask questions. Kids and adults with physical disabilities say that no one else will give them a chance or let them try. We challenge them to do more. They can't control their own bodies, but they can control a 1,200-pound animal."

19BR EVARD CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2011FOREVER YOU NG Aftering collecting as much information as possible on your ancestors by interviewing relatives, finding pictures, documents, tombstones, etc., it is time to get down to some serious genealogy research. One of the first r esources that is the most important and easiest to find, is the federal census.The U.S. government has conducted a household census in every state, every 10 years since 1790. The census records from 1790-1930 can be searched by the public except for 1890, which was destroyed by fire. They are arranged by states and then by counties, and then in, many cases by towns or districts. Some states also took their own census in odd years.. The 1850-1880 census records include a separate mortality census listing everyone who had died in the previous y ear. There are also slave census records for 1850 and 1860. M any researchers ignore these records completely, or only look at one or two r ecords for their family, assuming they have learned all the facts they need. Each family should be followed all the way back through the census every 10 y ears, picking up children, parents, brothers and sisters, in-laws and any other relatives that show up in the household or neighborhood. Fr om 1790-1840, the census only named the head of the household, and gave the number of people living in the house. From 1850 forward, each member of the household was named, with their sex, age, and place of birth. Each census became more complex, asking more questions, adding relationships, occupations, parents' places of birth, number of years married, number of children given birth to, and other pertinent clues. St arting with the 1930 census, and working backward, you should look at y our family, taking down all the information given and looking at the neighboring families. Often, other family members are living nearby, and these need to be noted, also. If there are other families with the same surname, they are possibly parents, brothers, uncles and cousins. John's father may be living next door to him, and in his household is grandma or grandpa. Viola!! You have three generations laid out on one or two pages. As you work your way through each census, you will find differences in the spellings of names, family members will come and go, and the family will move around the country. Each census taker had his own style. Some used only initials, some used only a first name r egardless of which name is preferred. S ometimes the correct name is used, the next time it will be a nickname. Ages also will change from census to census. U se this information as a guide and not as absolute fact. The first order of business is census work. I nformation gathered here will make the rest of your research much easier.

"I have to use a remote control for her mouth. I can't talk live because of the fan in Felicia's head because it gets so hot. I have to use prer ecorded material because a live microphone would pick up the fan." Ms. Rice loves to do Christmas shows and Felicia has a holiday outfit. This year, though, is a bit different. Ms. Rice's husband had a heart attack and is unable to help her. What she needs for Christmas this year are some volunteers to help put on the shows. "I t' s hard to find volunteers to help," she said. I need at least three good helpers to do a professional show. They need to be able to give time at least once a week, be open to direction and be able to lift their arms over their heads for as much as seven minutes. One of my 11-year-old students thought he did it for 10 minutes and it was only about a minute and a half. Finding volunteers would be awesome." Ms. Rice has 300 puppets and she buys their clothes at Goodwill. S he is always on the lookout for size 3T. "M y husband says they're better dressed than he is," she said. Ms. Rice, who is a member of the Orlando Puppet Guild and the P uppeteers of America, is also an illusionist and magician. Puppetry, however, remains her first love. "I do it as a puppet ministry," she said. "God gave me a gift and r esources to purchase puppets. "I do it to share the art and the message." she said.

22BR EVARD CountyHOMETOWN NEWSDecember 2011FOREVER YOU NG Common sense plays a huge role in the prevention of heartburn and indigestion, but all of that goes out the window when you sit down to a holiday dinner. Indigestion and heartburn come with over indulging over the holidays but holiday binging doesn't have to cause pain if you plan your meals using some digestive soothing herbs. Incorporating herbs into the meal provides natural relief preventing the gas and bloating that comes with being as stuffed as the turkey.H erbs can be added to vinegars for salad dressings; I like to make my vinegars about 3-4 weeks earlier for a stronger flavor using herbs like r osemary, garlic, basil, oregano, lemon grass or lemon peel in either wine vinegar or cider vinegar depending on the meal or the herbs. Y ou can also add herbs to soups, salads, vegetable dishes, in potatoes, stuffing, rubbed onto the turkey or even in deserts. F ennel can be used in breads rice, soups or in vegetables. In the book "B ack to Eden" Fennel is said to be useful for gas, an overly acidic stomach, cramps and spasms. B asil is good for reducing the acidity in tomato sauce that can cause gas and pain for some. Anise is great for an overly acidic stomach caused by eating too many sweets. My Grandmother must have known this because many of her cake and cookie recipes included Anise. G inger is one of the oldest known stomach healing remedies and one of my personal favorites. I always have crystallized Ginger in my kitchen and I munch on it throughout the day. It's a mild bitter so it helps to stimulate digestive enzymes making nutrients more absorbable plus its volatile oils have carminative actions helping to dispel gas and bloating. Ginger also tastes good in soups, vinegars, gingerbread, pies, cookies, ice cream and in ginger ale. R osemary helps to calm the digestive system reducing the amount of gas that is produced. It can be used in vinegars, potatoes, soups, breads and in butters. Cinnamon is a nice carminative herb that helps to calm the muscular lining of the digestive tract easing gas and bloating. Cinnamon tastes nice in ciders, pies, and cookies and mixed with sweet potatoes. S ome other herbs that could be used for preventing indigestion are coriander, oregano, thyme, marjor am, turmeric, cumin, sage, cloves and cayenne. And why not prepare a nice mulled cider using 1gallon cider, 1cup brown sugar, 2 teaspoons allspice, 1teaspoon whole cloves, 1teaspoon ground ginger and 1-3 cinnamon sticks simmered for at least 15minutes. After strained it can be served hot garnished with orange slices. Get creative this year with your meal, not only will it taste good but y our guests won't have regrets on how much they ate.
