Mo re than 100 people came to cheer, pray and put shovels in the ground to celebrate the new building planned at Fee and Waverly avenues. Dozens of people participated in the ceremonial groundbreaking for the new administrative building that is part of a $2 million expansion and renovation project. Thanks to a generous $850,000 gift by Howard and Me r cedes Buescher, founders of Mercedes Homes, Daily Br ead will begin construction of the new center, expected to be completed by late spring. The new facility will be named the Daily Bread Ho ward and Mercedes B uescher Outreach Center. The new administrative building will be followed by r enovation of the current D aily Bread soup kitchen located next door, said John F arrell, executive director of D aily Bread. W ith the expansion of the D aily Bread site, the poor and homeless will have access to kitchen and dining facilities, showers, and plenty of indoor space. D aily Bread's expansion was made possible by Mr. and Mrs. Buescher, who became D aily Bread soup kitchen volunteers through their church, Ascension Catholic Church of M elbourne. Mr. Buescher said church members discussed building a makeshift lean-to to provide the needy with some shelter. The vision expanded into the planned modern building, Mr. Buescher said.

F or its fall semester project, students in the university's Business & Retail Operations division hosted a Feed the Hungry C ampaign on campus from Nov. 7 through Dec. 2. In just more than a month's time, campaign organizers collected approximately 3,000 pounds of non-perishable food items and cash donations, donated by fellow students, faculty and staff. All of the items were donated to Daily Bread in Melbourne, a soup kitchen that provides food, showers and other services to hungry and homeless individuals throughout the South Brevard area. The entire campus community was extremely generous with campaign contributions," said Gianella Fuentes, Feed the H ungry Campaign coordinator, who is also a junior at Florida T ech majoring in computer sciences. "The donated food will go a long way to provide meals for those in need during this holiday season." E xactly how many meals 3,000 pounds of food will provide, however, varies by the types of items included, said John Farr ell, executive director of Daily Br ead. "T ypically, this donation would provide a minimum of 20 meals or the major items for our meals," he said. Mr. Farrell said he is extremely appreciative of the donation, especially because it was a student-organized food drive.

H undreds of local children and their families can smile a little brighter this holiday, with assistance from one beachside business. As a way to give back to the community, Coldwell B anker Paradise in Indialantic hosted its first-ever "E nchanted Christmas" fundraiser last month, r aising more than $20,000 for the South Brevard S haring Center's "Children W ithout Christmas" project. The funds, which doubled the company's goal of $10,000, will be used to provide holiday gifts from books to bicycles for 600 children in the South Brevard area, as well as 500 full holiday meals for local families in need. A dditionally, there were enough leftover funds to help cover the cost of ov erdue utility bills for families in danger of having their electricity service cut off. "I t was amazing how r esponsive artists both local and international, as we ll as businesses and the community were for this event," said David Omler, broker of Coldwell Banker Pa r adise, which is a fullservice real estate agency. "I t was just the brief discussion about the children in need that encouraged everyone to ask How can I help?'" More than 350 guests attended the Nov. 18 event, which featured both live and silent auctions, local restaurant samplings and a "gift tree" for local children. The staff at the South Br evard Sharing Center was overwhelmed with the donation and the generous support from all of the guests in attendance. "W e are extremely grateful for all the hard work put forth by the C oldwell Banker staff," said Mike Hubler, executive director of the South Br evard Sharing Center. This donation is somewhat an extension of what we've seen from the community, as our need has gotten greater and greater each year." Mr. Hubler, who started with the organization three years ago, said the center has grown from helping about 22,000 clients in 2008 to more than 50,000 this year. "I t took us just one week to sign up 600 kids (in need) to receive these toys," Mr. Hubler added. F ounded in 1971, the S outh Brevard Sharing C enter is a nonprofit, community-based agency that covers the areas of V iera, Melbourne, Palm B ay and south to Barefoot Bay. The general nature and purpose of the organization is to provide shortterm emergency assistance to needy individuals and families, when federal, state and county funds are not available, according to www.mysbsc.org. "W e distribute more than a ton of food each day now and are blessed that the community has provided us with the additional food and money we need to survive," Mr. Hubler said. "We find that a lot of our donors are people who have been there, struggling, who turn their lives around and come back to help others in need. It's all about paying it forward."

B ut, as of press time, the husband-and-wife-duo was still at large, most likely somewhere in the South F lorida area, said Agent Christ Cardinal of the Breva rd C ounty Sheriff's Office. Anthony Lancheros, 40, and Monica Cortes Lancheros, 41, both of Boca R aton, were arrested Nov. 27 by the Indian Harbour B each Police Department in connection with an incident at a Bealls department store. A loss-prevention officer at the store told police that the couple stole a wallet from a woman shopping at the beachside store, said Sgt. Anthony Aloise of the I ndian Harbour Beach P olice Department. A ccording to witness statements and video surveillance, the male suspect distracted the victim by asking her for her opinion on some clothing, while the female suspect snuck behind the victim and took the wallet from her purse, while it was hanging on her shoulder, Sgt. Aloise said. The top of the purse was open, so the female suspect just reached right in," he said. "The victim didn't even r ealize (her wallet) was gone until our officers came in and told her." S hortly after the incident, I ndian Harbour Beach P olice identified the suspects' van just over the Eau G allie Causeway in Melbourne, which contained their victim's wallet, stolen property from other incidents, as well as three additional wallets with no identification inside, Sgt. Aloise said. B oth suspects were sent to the Brevard County Detention Center on charges of grand theft, but posted their $8,000 bonds the following day and were released. S hortly after the arrest of these suspects, information surfaced that the couple may be involved in similar incidents that recently occurred in the MelbourneV iera area. B eginning in September, the Brevard County Sheriff's Office was investigating four separate credit card thefts in its jurisdiction. All of the incidents, including two on the same day as the beachside theft, involved a man and a woman who used the same tactics to target distracted shoppers, Agent Cardinal said. The suspects would then use the credit cards from the stolen wallets to purchase big-ticket items and electronics from other stores in the area. "W e found that they would steal the cards at Target and then use them at W al-Mart or steal them at W al-mart and use them at P ublix," Agent Cardinal said. The suspects, who match the Lancheros' description, we re caught on store video surveillance targeting women between the ages of 50 and 70. In all cases, Agent Cardinal said, the male suspect would distract the victim, maneuvering her away from her cart by asking her a question, while the female suspect would reach in the victim's purse and remove the wallet. "M ost didn't realize their wallets had even been stolen until they reached the cashier," he said. B ut it wasn't until after the Lancheros posted bail that the Sheriff's Office discovered their possible connection. B oth suspects currently face an $80,000 warrant for their arrest and could face a court appearance relating to the Indian Harbour Beach incident within the next few months, Agent Cardinal said. In the past few weeks, Sgt. Aloise said he has received calls from police departments in Seminole County, Orange County and the town of Lady Lake, which each reported similar incidents of credit card thefts performed by suspects matching the Lancheros' description. These (suspects) are just a couple of scammers from the South Florida area," Sgt. Aloise said. "And all of these agencies are interested in finding them." A nyone with information about the incidents are asked to call Agent Chris Cardinal at (321) 617-7306 or Crimeline at (800) 423-TIPS.Husband and wife suspected in five incidents in Brevard area, others across Central FloridaBy T ammy Roberts Senior Staff Writertroberts@hometownnewsol.com Monica Lancheros Anthony Lancheros CorrectionIn the Rants section of the M elbourne, Dec. 16, H ometown News Californiabased Cal Am, owner/operator of manufactured housing communities, RV r esorts and apartment management companies, was identified as "Kal Am."

Of a statewide sum of 2,115 students, a total of 126 students in grades fifth through 12th from Br evard were handpicked by a panel of judges to attend the Florida Music E ducators Conference in T ampa Jan. 11-14. The conference, which features top-performing y oung musicians from throughout the state, was designed to provide students with experience in working with internationally known clinicians and musical literature that may not be available in their individual schools, according to www.flmusiced.org. "W e have students who bring a passion and commitment to virtually every course or program officered," said Brevard Public Schools Superintendent Brian Binggeli in a press release. "Our challenge and our mission are to give them the instruction, support and opportunity to pursue excellence in all of them." In order to qualify for the All-State Ensemble, students face a rigorous audition process that includes a recorded performance showcasing their musicianship skills. S tudents in some ensembles, such as middle and high school choru s, we re also required to complete a theory-based written test and a musicr eading test prior to their vocal auditions, said Cindy Johnson, K-12 music resource teacher for Br evard Public Schools. While the selected students were comprised from several different ensembles at their individual schools, they were r equired to submit solo audition recordings, Ms. J ohnson added. Once the judges receive all of the submissions, they score the students based on their auditions and select a set number of musicians each year to perform at the conference. W ith 125 students, or 5.9 percent of the total students from Florida, being selected this year, Brevard P ublic Schools has once again proven the talent and dedication of its students, teachers, parents and administration, Ms. John son said. "I t takes a lot of work and effort to prepare for this (conference), and this success is a true testament of what these students can do," she said.More than 125 young musicians selected to perform at state levelBy T ammy Roberts Senior Staff Writertroberts@hometownnewsol.com Health First offers instant ER wait timesThese days, most of us use our cell phones for just about everything.

"I t' s beneficial for the students and the teachers," she said. "In second grade, the students come to me not able to read and are expected to know how by the time they leave." S he said the iPad, a tablet computer developed by Ap ple, contains applications that make reading enjoyable for the students while providing her with useful information. "P art of the goal for second-grade reading is timed fluency, and they use an application that times them and prints out their scores for records," she said. Alex Smith, a secondgrade student, said learning on the iPad is like playing a game. "I like reading on here because it gives me practice for reading that is fun," he said. An application called S parkle Fish helps students learn parts of speech by filling in the blanks to an audio story. The students can then replay the completed story, with their voices adding the verbs and adjectives. The kids really get a kick out of that," Ms. McMahan said. S he said because Sabal Elementary is a Title I school, which means it r eceives financial assistance due to a high percentage of children coming from low-income families, some students in her classr oom are not exposed to certain technologies at home. She said keeping them current by using r esources such as educational websites on laptops is crucial for their development in a technology-rich age. Through grants, Ms. Mc M ahan has received laptops, iPads and funds to attend educational field trips. The Brevard County School Board provided S abal with Promethean interactive whiteboards, which display computer images onto the board's surface and can be controlled by a special pen. M ichelle Patterson, who teaches children in the autistic unit at Sabal Elementary, uses the whiteboard because it effectively keeps children involved in her lessons. "S tudents with autism typically experience difficulties staying engaged, so if a teacher is standing there lecturing, they are less likely to retain the information they are being given," Ms. P atterson said. "If they are actively able to come up to the board and be engaged, they will learn better." Once every two weeks, each class at Sabal Elementary visits the computer lab, where students are trained on Microsoft Office applications such as Word and Pow erpoint, as well as E dmodo, a social-networking site for teachers and students, said Sam Clymer, who teaches in the computer lab. He r ecently conducted a survey to determine the students' thoughts on technology in the classroom. Although half of Ms. McMahan's second-grade class enjoys learning with iPads and computers, half still prefers to learn the oldfashioned way, Mr. Clymer said. Though some teachers are more comfortable with integrating technology into their lessons than others, Pr incipal Stephanie Hall said the school is focusing on bringing everyone to the same page. As far as technology goes, I'd say we're at a nine (out of 10), but we're still educating students and teachers with the current tools," Ms. McMahan said. "W e' re committed to our technology vision."L essonsF rom page A1 people who are very supportive of Daily Bread," he said. "Every year, they do some type of event like this, but every time it's a bit different and a bit bigger." O pen 365 days a year, Da ily Bread provides an average of 215 hot meals a day, Mr. Farrell said, but one day last week, for example, it was 344. "I t just depends on how many show up on a given day," he said. In addition to meals, the nonprofit provides an average of 25-45 showers per day and clothing and hygiene items for at least 50 people per day, as well as mail services. The facility also partners with other agencies that provide assistance with services such as health care, food stamps, HIV/AIDS testing, veteran's issues and support group meetings. A bout one-third of the facility's funding comes from its thrift shop on New Ha ven Avenue, Mr. Farrell said. The remainder comes from general donations.F oodF rom page A1 Visit Us @H ometownNewsOL.com

What's the difference between them wearing a helmet or not and children and adults supposed to be wearing one for bicycles and skateboards in general, and scooters. if they have to wear one, they why don't motorcyclists have to wear one? It's not r ight! Everyone should be safe and motorcyclists think they own the road, too! I agree that they need to be safe and their just as guilty as drivers in general. It's so annoying to see motorcycles everywhere! They don't even watch out for people behind their o wn wheel. They should be wearing their helmets to be safe too. Law or no law! It's not right! I thought they were supposed to create jobs hereIn spite of what the president says about creating jobs and or saving jobs, consider this one. We can thank Jeff Immelt and the CEOof General Electric and a real good buddy of President Obama. Anyway, General Electric is now planning to move its 115y ear-old division from Wisconsin to Beijing. Is n' t that amazing? In addition to moving their headquarters, the company will invest $2 billion in China and train more than 65 engineers to create research centers in China. This is the same GM that made over $5 billion in the U.S. last y ear and paid no taxes, and is the same company that employs more people overseas than it does in the United States. So I don't know what we must assume from this except somebody is telling a little fib. We wouldn't want to call the president a liar. President Obama appointed Mr. Immelt, the General Electric CEO, to head his commission on job creation. Is n' t that amazing? He 's transferring the jobs over seas. I thought he was supposed to create jobs here. This is just my opinion, but I think this shows a total lack of leadership, at the presidential level. I don't know what you folks are going to do about it in November of next year, but I know what I am going to do about it. He 's the same guy that wants to leave in this bill that deleted the don't ask don't tell so gays can serve openly in the military. He wants to leave in the part that's OK with sodomy and beastiality. In case you don't know what beastiality is, look it up in the dictionary. I am offended as a veteran, I am highly appalled and disappointed and I'm mad as hell; but I'm going to do something about it. I'm going to vote, and I want my vote to count; unless someone has a way of disenfranchising my vote. B ut I don't think our brave military and these dedicated people who are giving their lives every day should have a title like that tagged on them. We don't do that, Mr. President. M aybe some of your relatives in these third world countries like the Middle East do that, but not us.The seat belt laws and moreEv ery statistical study of car crashes shows that seat belts cause more injuries than they prevent and make no difference in survival in fatal-speed wrecks. Mo re ov er, seatbelts are not designed for everyone and get r eal about them being "adjustable." Ev en most car mechanics will tell you that the things are about as easy to adjust as a wall, and the rest just see dollar signs. M eanwhile, idiots are allowed to weave in and out of traffic on two unstable high-speed wheels, wearing nothing more than a bathing suit, when any biker will tell you that sooner or later, everyone lays it down. "Oh, but they're adults, they have the r ight to choose that." W ell then, adults have the right to choose not to be strapped in a seat belt. Y akking on a cell phone has proven, over and over, to cause more crashes than drunk driving. And texting typing on a tiny writing board while driving? M ost people can't even type on a full-sized keyboard while listening to the radio. This is not a "right to choose." Being distracted from your main concern, which is keeping control of your car, causes wrecks. W earing a seat belt may actually contribute to being distracted, by the discomfort. T alking on a cell phone while driving should be illegal unless the phoner and phonee can establish that it was an emergency situation. Looking anywhere except at the road and the mirrors from texting to messing with the radio to putting on makeup are matters for public safety concern. B ut no, the "seat belt law" is a cash cow for the cops. C ops will actually claim to have seen you without a seatbelt (flatly impossible, through two car windows you usually can't even tell if the person behind the wheel is young or old, male or female, blonde or dark). And when they pull you over, they'll claim, "I saw you putting the seatbelt on as you pulled over." (Also flatly impossible, with their lights reflecting off your window. S eat belts do not save lives. Seat belts fill political pockets. If the city, county and state need more money, they can lose half the cops and half their own paychecks. When six cops show up for someone walking their dog before dawn, you know we have too many "law enforcement agents" and too many "laws" they've made up to enforce. When the courts are clogged with people who were arrested for no reason, and then charged with resisting arrest, we are living in a police state to rival anything Stalin ever dreamed of a police state, literally. We need more scientists (including anthropologists). We need more teachers, more library hours, heck, more full-time gardeners to plant and tend trees and food plants. We do not need any more cops, lawyers, judges or politicians. When one retires, do not replace them. And in the meantime, get rid of stupid laws. R equiring an original birth certificate to get a driver's license? F or pity's sake. Half the CEOs of multinational corporations couldn't produce an original birth certificate. And repeal the cash-cow seatbelt law.A rave,' for a changeThe holiday season is surrounding us. It is the perfect time to acknowledge friends and family with gifts and sharing time together. It also is a time to thank businesses, associates and vendors for a year of commerce. This rave is to thank the community for supporting the 2011 annual Thanksgiving Rotary event "Get Up, Gather, Groove and Gi ve Thanks." The South Brevard Sharing Center benefits from this familyorientated event to get people of all ages and abilities moving on Thanksgiving morning and to help other families who are dependent upon assistance from organizations such as the S haring Center. Each year individuals walk, run, bike or even walk their dog through Melbourne Beach on a two-to-five-mile course by registering and donating food or money as their entry "fee." This allows anyone interested in participating in a group event to enter with the contribution meeting their budget, and at the same time 100 percent of the proceeds to go directly to the South Br evard Sharing Center. F or many participants, this is the first group fitness event that they attempt. It is always a lot of fun. B usinesses that actively assisted with "Get Up Gather Groove and Give Thanks 2011" and the grass roots distribution of food, fellowship and fitness included: the town of Melbourne Beach, the Melbourne Beach Police and Volunteer Fire departments, the Brevard County Sheriff's Department Citizen Observation P atrol, Eric Ponce State Farm Insurance, Gemini Elementary School, Wendy's of Indialantic, 7-11 of Melbourne Beach, Sandbar Pizza, Fast Chicken (located in the Exxon at Melbourne B each), Perfect Pear Catering the Brevard County South Beach R ecreation Center, Dandies Ice Cream, Florida Moving Systems and Glampartyz. The holiday spirit continues to thrive in our community, and it is appreciated. In response to God does not approve'Y ou "Bible thumpers" crack me up. Homosexuals won't be Gas price dilemmaI've lived in Melbourne for more than 60 years and I'm really upset about the gas prices in Brevard county. Y ou can go north of Eau Gallie and the gas is $3.28, but if you go south of Melbourne, in Palm Bay in south Melbourne, the gas at the Wal-Mart is $3.15. This has been going on for two weeks now. Nobody has changed any prices at all and it's just unbelievable that south M elbourne prices are cheaper than north Melbourne prices. I think that they should have an 800 number where people who would like to complain about this, it should be right on the gas pump, so that if you're pumping your gas and you want to complain about the gas price, you can call right then and complain, cause people are getting ripped off. I'm the bossObama and his democrats are blaming a "Do-Nothing Congress: aimed specifically a the Republican House for not passing his Jobs Act Plan." Fact is: during the last two years of the Bush administration Democrats had control of both houses of Congress, which continued during the first two years of the Obama Pr esidency. He got everything he asked for, Health care, bailouts of banks and mortgage companies, auto industries, stimulus packages . result: $14 trillion national debt. No w we see the president flying Air Force One all over the U nited States, blaming the do-nothing Congress for not passing his Jobs Act Plan, a plan that was rejected by both the Republican House and his Democratic-controlled Senate. Last November, the voters said enough is enough, and gave control of the house to Republicans and reduced the Democratic majority in the Senate but that hasn't stopped Obama he now uses Executive Privilege, by-passing Congress to adopt his bill In other words, "I don't need the voters, I don't need Congress I'm the boss."Republican?I bet my bottom dollar that Jerry Sandusky is a Republican, there is no doubt about it.

I hate to tell you but now is the time people are being judged. Look around you. All people do lately is judge others and be intolerant of anyone who is different. At no place in its more than 30,000 verses does the Bible claim that it is factually accur ate in terms of history, science, geography and all other matters. We are a country of many faiths, many different beliefs. I hope people who think like you are a dying breed. I support equality for all. Scared AmericansY ou are not secure in your homes, persons or property. Y ou have no privacy. You do not have a right to a trial or to face your accuser. What happened to the basic tenets of freedom? Who took them from us? Don't let the government decide what foods or dietary supplements you can use. The pharmaceutical companies and large corporationshave taken over our FDA and government. We are now a country under tyranny, even if yo u don't wantto believe it. They have scared people with the Patriot Act, and Americans have become cowards not to speak up. M ost people will not take the time to research and find the truth. They have chosen ignorance. Those who know the least obey the best.F eeding the greedThe "1 percent" at Target, W almart, Best Buy, Walgreen and other head offices enjoyed a relaxing Thanksgiving Day, you can bet your boots. The 99 percent of their store employees didn't fare so well. M ost had to work on Thanksgiving Day. They worked to "feed the greed" of the 1 percent. Some had to be at work by 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving, ready to work ov ernight. That meant going to bed in the middle of Thanksgiving Day to get some r est. Others had little time to spend with family who came to enjoy the holiday with them. S adly, other 99 percenters across the U.S. helped "feed the greed" of the 1 percent. They lined up, camped, pepper-sprayed or shot their fellow 99 percenters to get the bargains. In their greed, they too made store employees work. H ad everyone stayed home until 5 or 6 a.m. Friday morning, you can be sure next year the greedy 1 percent would not have those stores open. Their employees would not be forced to work. They wouldn't staff empty stores. D id you shop on Thanksgiving evening or overnight? Y ou helped "feed the greed" of the 1 percent. Y ou forced employees of those multi-nationals to work. Y ou were as guilty as the 1 percent.RantsF rom page A6 Br ead means the homeless will not have to relocate to Sa r no Road, or elsewhere, as previously considered. Mr. Farrell said Daily Br ead's expansion would not have been possible without the large contribution by Mr. and Mrs. Buescher. The reason we're here today is because of the magnificent generosity of Howard and Mercedes Buescher," Mr. F arrell said. "Their gift enabled up to purchase this land that we're standing on. "I 'v e been in the fundraising business for 30 years, and this is the most magnanimous gesture in fundraising I've ever seen," Mr. Farrell said. Mr. Buescher said he became involved several y ears ago when his wife signed him up to help feed the homeless as a Daily Bread volunteer on Thanksgiving Day. "I looked outside, and it was cold and damp and r ainy," Mr. Buescher recalled. "Y ou couldn't see around the corner because the line was so long. I kept thinking, How are they going to enjoy their dinner when they are cold and wet?' "I said, We need to do something,' Mr. Buescher said. "It has taken six years to put the shovels in the ground." Officials said plans to provide homeless facilities on Sa r no Road are dead, thanks to the new facility. Mr. Farrell said the 5,000square foot facilities will enable Daily Bread to feed its clients indoors, and relieve public concerns about people loitering in public. "U pon its renovation, the kitchen facility will be able to feed everyone inside, no longer exposed to the heat in summer or the cold in winter," Mr. Farrell said. "W e' ll have adequate facilities for three showers, and there will be enough waiting room for those waiting for services," Mr. Farrell said. "B y feeding and clothing people today, tomorrow has been assured," Mr. Farrell said of the facility, which feeds more than 350 people daily. Mr. Farrell said the facility will include room for Alcoholics Anonymous and for its board of directors. Mr. and Mrs. Buescher led the ceremonial groundbreaking that included Melbourne City Council members Mark LaRusso, Mike No wlin and Greg Jones, and city manager Jack Schluckebier. Mr. LaRusso said the Daily Br ead expansion isn't just for the homeless. "W e have children whose only meal comes from their hot lunch at school," Mr. LaRusso said. "You have the elderly who are living on S ocial Security, and you have the working poor living paycheck to paycheck." Mr. Farrell was also presented with a $10,000 check by J an Hill of Wells Fargo A dvisors of Melbourne. "W e look for ways in which we can contribute to programs in the community, and this was one of them," Ms. Hill said.BreadF rom page A1 get something from the car, he said. The man went outside, authorities said, and never came back. Sh e called him. He laughed. "I stole your car," said Michael Pratt, a 27y ear-old from New Port Richey, according to the P asco Sheriff's Office. He hung up. The victim, who is 35, lives in Zephyrhills and r eferred to Pratt as a friend in a report. The car, a silver 2012 Ford Focus, was a rental. The woman told investigators she tried to call Pratt for two days before she called the S heriff's Office for help. Pr att called her four days after the movie outing and said he dumped the car in a Walmart parking lot in N ew Port Richey, authorities said. Deputies found the car and Pratt was arrested Wednesday. He is charged with grand theft of a motor vehicle. Pratt previously served more than a year in prison for the same charge, as well as fraud, grand theft, uttering forged bills and failing to r eturn rental property.

F irst. "We feel that the more information and tools we can provide for people, the better off they will be in making informed decisions about which facility to go to." To take it a step further, anyone with a GPSenabled smart phone can also receive plotted maps and directions to all four H ealth First hospitals, Mr. C ohen said. "D uring an emergency, one of the most precious things you can't afford to waste is time," Mr. Cohen said. "When you or a loved one needs emergency care, y ou want to know how quickly that help will be available. If you're on the r oad, you need to know the quickest route to the ER and how long you'll have to wait before the injuries or illness is assessed." The wait times are updated around the clock via the www.BrevardERs.org we bsite, which was launched last August. W ithin the text message r esponse, there is a link to this website, which provides detailed information about each of the hospitals, as well as tips for determining whether to visit an emergency r oom or walk-in clinic for yo ur injury or illness. The (text message) service was designed to provide that on-the-go accessibility for those who are not at home in front of their computers, but r ather for the mom whose kid twists his ankle on the soccer field," Mr. Elliot said. "This is a much more instantaneous and accur ate system than has ever existed before, and it does offer that peace of mind during those times of emergency." CAPE CANAVERAL C entral Florida has some of the nation's top television meteorologists; all of whom carry impeccable credentials and impressive, accur ate weather forecasts. However, when it comes to predicting the seas, sometimes the future casts can be a little misleading, especially if you're considering a cruise aboard the Victory C asino Cruises ship that moors and departs Port C anaveral 13 times a week. The ride is typically a lot smoother than what the w eather folks would lead y ou to believe. V ictory Captain Tim Levensaler is senior captain at V ictory Casino Line. He holds the highest United S tates Coast Guard license as a Master Mariner Unlimited tonnage and also holds a U.S. Coast Guard endorsement as Unlimited Pilot for the Port Canaveral ship channel and approaches. C aptain Levensaler has been sailing on various ships worldwide for 29 y ears. He's been sailing from Po rt C anaveral since 1985. All of the local weather forecast venues get their information from the N ational Oceanographic A tmospheric Administration websites," Capt. Levensaler points out. "These w ebsites offer a very general forecast for waters 20 and even 60 miles offshore in unprotected waters. The winds and, more importantly, the seas and waves in our operating area are in actuality a fraction of the broadcast heights." That means a much smoother sail than what you might be lead to believe. C apt. Levensaler further says Port Canaveral is unique because it offers natural barriers that significantly moderate the forecasted weather in the operating area; specifically "The C ape" itself and barrier reefs that extend out seven miles from the Cape. This enables the Victory Casino Cruises to operate in protected waters through the fall and winter season when winds are predominantly from the No r th and Northeast. The Victory 1 operates in a very small area between three and five miles East and Northeast of the Port C anaveral ship channel entrance," Capt. Levensaler adds. "This area is protected by the Cape and reefs." So next time you're contemplating a fun time on the Vi ctory Casino Cruises and there's a concern about publicly forecasted choppy seas, be sure to check Capt. Levensaler's official Weather B log and forecast at www.victorycasinocruises.com.

So just before they died in the late 1990s, they established the Bristol-Hansen Charitable Foundation and set aside the majority of their assets to assist various organizations in the local community in reaching their goals. One of these organizations is the Children's Advocacy Center of Brevard, which since 1996, has worked alongside a variety of other agencies to investigate allegations of child abuse and the provision of services to the most severely abused children in the local community. Among several other nonprofits, the Rockledgebased center was awarded a grant for $3,700 this month for its one-of-a-kind Clinical I ntervention Program. The mission of the Child Ad vocacy Center fits directly with our guidelines as a foundation and is very deserving of this grant," said H ugh Normile, a longtime friend of Ms. Bristol and Ms. H ansen and a trustee for the foundation. "They assist children in the worst-case scenarios and are devoted to bettering their lives." The grant, which was applied for in September, was actually awarded to the Fr iends of the Child Advocacy Center of Brevard group, which is an all-volunteer nonprofit established to increase awareness of the issues of child abuse and neglect and raise funds for the center. The money from the grant will be used to update the client-data management system within the center's Clinical Intervention Program, which provides onsite crisis intervention and short-term counseling for child victims in Brevard C ounty, as well as their nonoffending parents and siblings. "F or years, we have operated with a (data system) that one of our wonderful volunteers created, but the time has come to replace it," said Teresa Munroe, communications and development coordinator for the Children's Advocacy Center of Brevard. "This new system comes with a lot more user-friendly features and will help our counselors r ecord more efficient client data and assessment tools in order to better assist our victims." In past years, Ms. Munroe said, much of the program's client data had to be recorded manually and became increasingly difficult to maintain. "W e' re so gracious that foundations such as the Br istol-Hansen (Charitable F oundation) understand and support the work we do and can see how this improvement will greatly assist us in the future," Ms. M unroe said. "This is such wonderful news for us." R epresentatives from the Child Advocacy Center and Fr iends organization attended an awards luncheon earlier this month, hosted by the Bristol-Hansen Charitable Foundation. Du r ing the event, all of this year's grantees, including the Brevard County Library Foundation, the S outh Brevard Sharing Center, the Florida Wildlife Hospital in Melbourne, Club Esteem in Melbourne, Unitarian Universalist Church in West Melbourne, Devereux behavioral health organization in Viera, as w ell as the Child Advocacy C enter, were awarded their individual grants an opportunity to discuss the need for them. "W e find that the luncheon is one of the most valuable things we do as an organization because it gives all of the recipients a chance to learn about one another," Mr. Normile said. "F r om there, there are different partnerships that develop all across the county, and we all take something from it."

I don't mind when Christmas things start showing up in displays at hobby and sewing stores in August. I want it to be here all year long. I think God does too, only not in the commercial way that the stores have in mind, but in the genuine heartfelt change we see in the world every D ecember. Oh, I am fond of the sparkle of the lights and the richness of the smells and the joyful sounds of carols and bells, but I love, love, love THE LOVE that is in the air. In the dark of winter, there is the greatest light of hope in all the loving that we do for each other. The love we do for friends and relatives for sure, but most especially in the things we do for strangers; from "Merry Christmas" as we pass people we don't know, to putting change in a bell r inger's bucket, to providing r esources to non-profits that help those in need. When we do these things we are the Christ" in Christmas. We add to the love that fills the air and overwhelms us with a sense of good, a sense of the sacred. M ost people don't know that the Christmas stories about Jesus in the Bible had very modest beginnings as a small Jewish sect's radical opposition to an oppressive and violent empire of man. The Nativity narratives that form the nucleus of our Christmas traditions began as a revolution of love by J esus followers who were bolding claiming that God worked through ordinary J oes (and Mary's), not elite emperors. And how they did this was simply brilliant; they co-opted the claims that the R oman Empire made about their god, Caesar, turning R ome's claims on their head as claims about Christ. Long before these things we re associated with Jesus, R ome claimed that Caesar was born of a virgin; associated with a star, the Son of God; Lord; Prince of Peace; R edeemer; and Savior of the W orld. Two outstanding modern Protestant and C atholic theologians, (respectively) Marcus Borg and John Dominic Crossan, note that the Jesus followers' use of such phrases and claims for, "the newborn J esus would [have been] either low lampoon or high treason and since empires always know their opponents, Rome was not laughing." The lofty phrases and claims were reserved for elite born emperors not lowly born peasant boys, and certainly not for those whom the empire convicts and executes. The Roman Empire sought peace on earth, the P ax Romana, through violent oppression and the deifying of its oppressive leaders. The J esus followers claimed the opposite for its leader,i.e., J esus, sought peace on earth through non-violent love and kindness. It 's a tribute to those early followers of Jesus that the terms Rome once gave to C aesar have forever become terms that we (and much of the rest of the world) associate with Jesus, most especially in the Nativity stories and at Christmas. Mo re ov er, every year at Christmas we prove that peace on earth through nonviolent love and kindness is not impossible because for a month we practice it on a wide scale and it works. I cannot wait until we do it all y ear long. M erry Christmas to all of y ou my dear readers! The Rev.Scott Elliott is the pastor at Riviera United Church of Christ in Palm Bay.

I believe it is their intention to direct it toward a scientific curriculum, eliminating wasteful subject matters like humanities. I have been waiting for some response from a r eal educator. Nothing so far. Y ou will notice that I did not use the titles "governor" or "senate leader."

The Brevard Community Chorus and the Brevard Children's Chorus are each holding auditions for new members in the New Year. The Brevard Community Chorus, under the direction of David Vogeding for the 2011-12 season, is an all-volunteer community ensemble serving south and central Brevard C ounty. Members rehearse w eekly on Tuesdays at the Br evard Community C ollege art wing, adjacent to the King Center. R ehearsals will resume on Jan. 10 and auditions will be held after rehearsal on Jan. 10, 17 and 24. Past singing experience is r equired. Singers should also be able to read music proficiently and be prepared to sight read. All voices are invited, but tenors and basses are particularly needed. The chorus will perform its spring concert, "A Sp r ing Renewal," on May 5 at 7:30 p.m. It will include the "Mass in E Flat" by Fr antz Schubert and selections from contempora ry composer John Rutter. Da vid Vogeding has been serving as the group's director this season while R obert Lamb is on sabbatical. "I t' s been a wonderful experience," he said. "It's been a learning curve, getting to know them and the group getting to know me. "I am looking forward to the spring program. Schubert's Mass is one of those gems in music literature. It's one of the most beautiful pieces that Schubert ever did. It needs a good-size chorus, and that's why I'd like people to audition. We could use many, many singers for this performance." J ohn Rutter, a contemporary English composer, is a favorite, as well. "R utter's music can take something old and freshen it to the point where you think you've never heard it in this new way, and he takes a piece of new music and makes you believe you have heard it before." Br evard Children's Chorus, under the direction of Joani Slawson, will hold auditions on Jan. 21 for singers in grades fourth through 10th. Auditions are from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Central Church of Christ in Cocoa. Students in public and private schools, as well as homeschooled students are invited to audition. The Brevard Children's Chorus is open to children from throughout the county. Begun in 2004, the group performs choral music at venues and events including Christmas performances with the Brevard Symphony Orchestra and the Brevard C ommunity Chorus. J oani Slawson, the group's director, said that the group was looking for children, who love to sing and want to share their talent with the community. The art of musicmaking is more than just singing notes," she said. "E very week, we work on integrating basic music theory, sight-singing and music history to help make the experience meaningful and fun." The group rehearses on Thursday nights from 78:30 p.m. at Central Church of Christ in C ocoa.

MELBOURNE Before golfers tee it up at local golf courses, they usually practice. That practice can include surfing the Web for the best price for a round of golf. As a result, some golfers are grumbling that Melbourne's two city-owned courses charge among the highest rates in Brevard C ounty even though the courses are not in pristine condition. In golf, a course's physical condition fairways with a consistent carpeting of grass, well-manicured putting greens make for a better golfing experience. B ecause of a comparative lack of manpower due to budget constraints, Melbourne's courses can't compete with the quality of other courses. M any golfers are sticking with Melbourne despite higher rates, while other golfers surf the Internet for better rates. B ut prices can vary depending on day and time. F or example: Melbourne's two public courses Crane Creek R eserve and Mallard's Landing charge $41.34, after taxes, for an 18-hole r ound of golf. The purchase of a $40 frequent player card reduces the $41.34 fee by $5 per round. At Baytree National Golf Links, a superbly conditioned layout in Melbourne, golfers can play for $30, or less, after noon with an "I nsider" card. But nonI nsiders can pay $53 plus tax before 11 a.m. At The Majors Golf Club in Palm Bay, a well-conditioned course, golfers who buy a $30 Insider card can enjoy a round for $23 after 1 p .m. on a busy weekend. B ut non-resident, nonI nsiders can pay $55 before noon. At the area's newest course, Duran Golf Club, which opened in 2005, residents can play for $35 after 1 p.m. However, that rate is $66 before 11 a.m. for nonr esidents. At Viera East Golf C ourse in Melbourne, golfers can pay up to $51 before 11 a.m. on weekends for non-residents but can also pay just $25 after 2 p .m., while risking being ov ertaken by darkness. Three Brevard Countyr un courses The Habitat in Valkaria, Savannahs in M erritt Island and Spessard-Holland in Melbourne B each can be played for under $30 with a discount card. S ome golfers find bargains a short drive away, at S andridge Golf Club in I ndian River County, Sebastian Municipal Course, or Ha rm ony Golf Preserve in Ha r mony, where golfer can enjoy a superior track for less than $30. So why does Melbourne charge more than betterconditioned courses? B ob Nachreiner, golf director for the city of Melbourne, said there are numerous reasons for Melbourne's rates. Mr. Nachreiner emphasized that unlike corporateo wned courses, Melbourne courses receive no city funding and must be selfsustaining. Mr. Nachreiner said some of the grumbling occurred because Melbourne did away with its resident discount of $10 per round. Mr. Nachreiner said the elimination of the residents' discount helped Melbourne balance its budget and affected few people because most golfers are snowbirds or don't live in M elbourne. D espite the adjustment, M elbourne courses attract a steady stream of golfers, mainly because of their central location, and the fact Melbourne allows golfers to walk. Most courses restrict walking and r equire the rental of automated carts. M any seniors prefer Melbourne courses because they are comparatively easier to play. M elbourne must charge a set rate to survive financially, Mr. Nachreiner said. Last y ear, the Melbourne courses were about $100,000 in the black, but in the previous year, they lost about $100,000 and took out a loan to balance their budget. B ecause of the stagnant economy, some courses r educe prices such as The M ajors in Palm Bay, which offered rates of $10 in the heat of summer. Mr. Nachreiner said he can't go that low because of w ear and tear on Melbourne's courses. When The Majors had golf for ten bucks last summer, they had 120 players and they made $1,200. I had 50 players and I made $1,200," Mr. Nachreiner said. "I can't let someone play for less than it cost me to put them out there," he said. Mr. Nachreiner said two y ears ago, Melbourne had to outlay $40,000 just for batteries for its golf carts. The Melbourne courses have a combined annual budget of $2.7 million to cover operating costs and capital expenses, and they employ a combined 15 people without relying on city tax revenues. "Y ou can go to Remington and pay $25 and get breakfast, a hot dog and lunch," Mr. Nachreiner said. "I can't compete with that. I would go out of business. "W e were lowering our prices and we were going in the hole. That's why we had to raise them. Other courses have other funding," he said. M elbourne's rates are set by the City Council, but there are bargains. A walking golfer who purchases a $725 annual membership and plays four times a week pays $10.33 per round, Mr. N achreiner said. A member who rents a cart and plays once a week pays $29.79 per r ound. "W e used to get 100,000 to 120,000 rounds a year, and we're doing about 55,000 rounds now," he said. "And we're probably r ight at the top of the list." In fact, Melbourne golfers bought 230 of the $40 discount cards when they were offered in November. Mr. Nachreiner said superintendents at highend courses are accustomed to golfers grumbling about overseeding or heatr elated damage to greens. "I know the superintendent of Tiger Woods' course in Isleworth personally, and he hears grumbling all the time," Mr. Nachreiner said. B ut he acknowledges that M elbourne isn't Isleworth. "I have a four-man maintenance crew, and most courses have a 12-person crew," he said.

This should be a goal throughout the year not just the holidays. Even though your life is very busy, give yourself a treat every so often. You have earned it. If you don't do this you won't see it from others who forget how special you are. It's O.K. to blow your own horn sometimes.Libra-Sept. 23-Oct. 22Y our magic continues to be strong. Stay grounded in your main beliefs and refuse to compromise when you know the truth. Others around you may think you are stubborn. T he truth is you know what is right. The key to peace to fine communication is to find a subject of conversation the other person is interested in and encourage them to talk.Scorpio-Oct. 23-Nov. 21Refuse to let the new year catch you up in too many new activities at once. Stay focused on the top three priorities and let the lesser ones wait. Learn to delegate. Ask help from closest friends when needed. This honors them and gives you clues to the direction you should be going in. Now positive results will happen.Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21K eep on changing and freeing old outdated habits and attitudes. You are healthier, more prosperous and happy than ever before. Why? Because of releasing the past and growing new and better ways. Your vision is strong. You know what your priorities are. Keep this pattern going and you will have the best new year ever.Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19Y our greatest strength is in the realm of ideas. You can have 100 new ones but it doesn't mean they will translate into dollars. the key is to psyche yourself up and work on the top two or three. Keep on encouraging others around you to pick up the slack and work as a team. Now the world is your oyster and the sky is the limit.Aquarius-Jan. 20-Feb. 18P assion for life is the key to your continuing success and happiness. Follow your vision, take care of your emotional needs and all other good things will follow and get accomplished. Keep your mind focused on the present and near future dreams. T here is much positive change and growth coming your way in the new year.Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20Y our power of choice and discernment is running very high right now.

Eligible participants will be compensated $50 for the initial study, and up to $680 for those who are selected to participate in the monitoring and repair portion of the project; r epair costs will be paid by the center. H omes for the study are being sought in the following Florida counties: Breva r d, Osceola, Orange, S eminole, Volusia, Lake, Ma r ion, Putnam, Flagler, S t. Johns, Clay, Duval and Na ssau. W ind washing involves the flow of air from an attic space into the floor cavity between the first and second stories of the house. The FSEC research team will be conducting about five hours of testing in each home.Testing will examine airtightness, air pressure fields in the house, air conditioner performance, duct leakage and attic-to-floor cavity air leak pathways. Tw enty-four homes will be tested.Six of those homes will be selected for r epairs, and they will be monitored to evaluate the cooling and heating energy savings from the repairs.

H appy Hanukkah! H appy Kwanzaa! Whatever your religious or secular belief, I want to wish y ou and yours the very best this holiday season. I love this time of year. It's a time for families and friends to be together time for love and harmony. As in many years past, our family and some friends and neighbors will be celebrating this holiday season with a loved one serving overseas. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers, and set a seat aside at your table so that everyone who gathers with you will keep in mind the sacrifice these men and women are making for us. T ake the time to tell your loved ones how you feel about them. Take a moment to say hello to a stranger or make a new friend. Take a moment to give something back. We can all be heroes, even if all we give someone is a smile. As tough as times are these days, there is still much to be thankful for. No matter how difficult things are, we still have each other. We still have our family, our friends, and ourselves. If even for just a day, take a moment to think only of the wonderful gifts you have in life. Think of something or someone that makes you happy and hold that close. At this time of year we all tend to be more human, more kind and more caring. My wish is that we would just keep and share this feeling for 12 months instead of only one. W ith that said, I now present you the Twelve Days of Christmas, golf style.

Mo re than 100 people came to cheer, pray and put shovels in the ground to celebrate the new building planned at Fee and Waverly avenues. Dozens of people participated in the ceremonial groundbreaking for the new administrative building that is part of a $2 million expansion and renovation project. Thanks to a generous $850,000 gift by Howard and Mer cedes Buescher, founders of Mercedes Homes, Daily Br ead will begin construction of the new center, expected to be completed by late spring. The new facility will be named the Daily Bread Howard and Mercedes B uescher Outreach Center. The new administrative building will be followed by r enovation of the current D aily Bread soup kitchen located next door, said John F arrell, executive director of D aily Bread. W ith the expansion of the D aily Bread site, the poor and homeless will have access to kitchen and dining facilities, showers, and plenty of indoor space. D aily Breads expansion was made possible by Mr. and Mrs. Buescher, who became D aily Bread soup kitchen volunteers through their church, Ascension Catholic Church of M elbourne. Mr. Buescher said church members discussed building a makeshift lean-to to provide the needy with some shelter. The vision expanded into the planned modern building, Mr. Buescher said.

F or its fall semester project, students in the universitys Business & Retail Operations division hosted a Feed the Hungry C ampaign on campus from Nov. 7 through Dec. 2. In just more than a months time, campaign organizers collected approximately 3,000 pounds of non-perishable food items and cash donations, donated by fellow students, faculty and staff. All of the items were donated to Daily Bread in Melbourne, a soup kitchen that provides food, showers and other services to hungry and homeless individuals throughout the South Brevard area. The entire campus community was extremely generous with campaign contributions, said Gianella Fuentes, Feed the H ungry Campaign coordinator, who is also a junior at Florida T ech majoring in computer sciences. The donated food will go a long way to provide meals for those in need during this holiday season. E xactly how many meals 3,000 pounds of food will provide, however, varies by the types of items included, said John Farr ell, executive director of Daily Br ead. T ypically, this donation would provide a minimum of 20 meals or the major items for our meals, he said. Mr. Farrell said he is extremely appreciative of the donation, especially because it was a student-organized food drive.

Hundreds of local children and their families can smile a little brighter this holiday, with assistance from one beachside business. As a way to give back to the community, Coldwell B anker Paradise in Indialantic hosted its first-ever E nchanted Christmas fundraiser last month, r aising more than $20,000 for the South Brevard S haring Centers Children W ithout Christmas project. The funds, which doubled the companys goal of $10,000, will be used to provide holiday gifts from books to bicycles for 600 children in the South Brevard area, as well as 500 full holiday meals for local families in need. A dditionally, there were enough leftover funds to help cover the cost of ov erdue utility bills for families in danger of having their electricity service cut off. I t was amazing how r esponsive artists both local and international, as we ll as businesses and the community were for this event, said David Omler, broker of Coldwell Banker Par adise, which is a fullservice real estate agency. I t was just the brief discussion about the children in need that encouraged everyone to ask How can I help? More than 350 guests attended the Nov. 18 event, which featured both live and silent auctions, local restaurant samplings and a gift tree for local children. The staff at the South Br evard Sharing Center was overwhelmed with the donation and the generous support from all of the guests in attendance. W e are extremely grateful for all the hard work put forth by the C oldwell Banker staff, said Mike Hubler, executive director of the South Br evard Sharing Center. This donation is somewhat an extension of what weve seen from the community, as our need has gotten greater and greater each year. Mr. Hubler, who started with the organization three years ago, said the center has grown from helping about 22,000 clients in 2008 to more than 50,000 this year. I t took us just one week to sign up 600 kids (in need) to receive these toys, Mr. Hubler added. F ounded in 1971, the S outh Brevard Sharing C enter is a nonprofit, community-based agency that covers the areas of V iera, Melbourne, Palm B ay and south to Barefoot Bay. The general nature and purpose of the organization is to provide shortterm emergency assistance to needy individuals and families, when federal, state and county funds are not available, according to www.mysbsc.org. W e distribute more than a ton of food each day now and are blessed that the community has provided us with the additional food and money we need to survive, Mr. Hubler said. We find that a lot of our donors are people who have been there, struggling, who turn their lives around and come back to help others in need. Its all about paying it forward.

B ut, as of press time, the husband-and-wife-duo was still at large, most likely somewhere in the South F lorida area, said Agent Christ Cardinal of the Breva rd C ounty Sheriffs Office. Anthony Lancheros, 40, and Monica Cortes Lancheros, 41, both of Boca R aton, were arrested Nov. 27 by the Indian Harbour B each Police Department in connection with an incident at a Bealls department store. A loss-prevention officer at the store told police that the couple stole a wallet from a woman shopping at the beachside store, said Sgt. Anthony Aloise of the I ndian Harbour Beach P olice Department. A ccording to witness statements and video surveillance, the male suspect distracted the victim by asking her for her opinion on some clothing, while the female suspect snuck behind the victim and took the wallet from her purse, while it was hanging on her shoulder, Sgt. Aloise said. The top of the purse was open, so the female suspect just reached right in, he said. The victim didnt even r ealize (her wallet) was gone until our officers came in and told her. S hortly after the incident, I ndian Harbour Beach P olice identified the suspects van just over the Eau G allie Causeway in Melbourne, which contained their victims wallet, stolen property from other incidents, as well as three additional wallets with no identification inside, Sgt. Aloise said. B oth suspects were sent to the Brevard County Detention Center on charges of grand theft, but posted their $8,000 bonds the following day and were released. S hortly after the arrest of these suspects, information surfaced that the couple may be involved in similar incidents that recently occurred in the MelbourneV iera area. B eginning in September, the Brevard County Sheriffs Office was investigating four separate credit card thefts in its jurisdiction. All of the incidents, including two on the same day as the beachside theft, involved a man and a woman who used the same tactics to target distracted shoppers, Agent Cardinal said. The suspects would then use the credit cards from the stolen wallets to purchase big-ticket items and electronics from other stores in the area. W e found that they would steal the cards at Target and then use them at W al-Mart or steal them at W al-mart and use them at P ublix, Agent Cardinal said. The suspects, who match the Lancheros description, we re caught on store video surveillance targeting women between the ages of 50 and 70. In all cases, Agent Cardinal said, the male suspect would distract the victim, maneuvering her away from her cart by asking her a question, while the female suspect would reach in the victims purse and remove the wallet. M ost didnt realize their wallets had even been stolen until they reached the cashier, he said. B ut it wasnt until after the Lancheros posted bail that the Sheriffs Office discovered their possible connection. B oth suspects currently face an $80,000 warrant for their arrest and could face a court appearance relating to the Indian Harbour Beach incident within the next few months, Agent Cardinal said. In the past few weeks, Sgt. Aloise said he has received calls from police departments in Seminole County, Orange County and the town of Lady Lake, which each reported similar incidents of credit card thefts performed by suspects matching the Lancheros description. These (suspects) are just a couple of scammers from the South Florida area, Sgt. Aloise said. And all of these agencies are interested in finding them. A nyone with information about the incidents are asked to call Agent Chris Cardinal at (321) 617-7306 or Crimeline at (800) 423-TIPS.Husband and wife suspected in five incidents in Brevard area, others across Central FloridaBy T ammy Roberts Senior Staff Writertroberts@hometownnewsol.com Monica Lancheros Anthony Lancheros CorrectionIn the Rants section of the M elbourne, Dec. 16, H ometown News, Californiabased Cal Am, owner/operator of manufactured housing communities, RV r esorts and apartment management companies, was identified as Kal Am.

Of a statewide sum of 2,115 students, a total of 126 students in grades fifth through 12th from Br evard were handpicked by a panel of judges to attend the Florida Music E ducators Conference in T ampa Jan. 11-14. The conference, which features top-performing y oung musicians from throughout the state, was designed to provide students with experience in working with internationally known clinicians and musical literature that may not be available in their individual schools, according to www.flmusiced.org. W e have students who bring a passion and commitment to virtually every course or program officered, said Brevard Public Schools Superintendent Brian Binggeli in a press release. Our challenge and our mission are to give them the instruction, support and opportunity to pursue excellence in all of them. In order to qualify for the All-State Ensemble, students face a rigorous audition process that includes a recorded performance showcasing their musicianship skills. S tudents in some ensembles, such as middle and high school choru s, we re also required to complete a theory-based written test and a musicr eading test prior to their vocal auditions, said Cindy Johnson, K-12 music resource teacher for Br evard Public Schools. While the selected students were comprised from several different ensembles at their individual schools, they were r equired to submit solo audition recordings, Ms. J ohnson added. Once the judges receive all of the submissions, they score the students based on their auditions and select a set number of musicians each year to perform at the conference. W ith 125 students, or 5.9 percent of the total students from Florida, being selected this year, Brevard P ublic Schools has once again proven the talent and dedication of its students, teachers, parents and administration, Ms. John son said. I t takes a lot of work and effort to prepare for this (conference), and this success is a true testament of what these students can do, she said.More than 125 young musicians selected to perform at state levelBy T ammy Roberts Senior Staff Writertroberts@hometownnewsol.com Health First offers instant ER wait timesThese days, most of us use our cell phones for just about everything.

I t s beneficial for the students and the teachers, she said. In second grade, the students come to me not able to read and are expected to know how by the time they leave. S he said the iPad, a tablet computer developed by Ap ple, contains applications that make reading enjoyable for the students while providing her with useful information. P art of the goal for second-grade reading is timed fluency, and they use an application that times them and prints out their scores for records, she said. Alex Smith, a secondgrade student, said learning on the iPad is like playing a game. I like reading on here because it gives me practice for reading that is fun, he said. An application called S parkle Fish helps students learn parts of speech by filling in the blanks to an audio story. The students can then replay the completed story, with their voices adding the verbs and adjectives. The kids really get a kick out of that, Ms. McMahan said. S he said because Sabal Elementary is a Title I school, which means it r eceives financial assistance due to a high percentage of children coming from low-income families, some students in her classr oom are not exposed to certain technologies at home. She said keeping them current by using r esources such as educational websites on laptops is crucial for their development in a technology-rich age. Through grants, Ms. McM ahan has received laptops, iPads and funds to attend educational field trips. The Brevard County School Board provided S abal with Promethean interactive whiteboards, which display computer images onto the boards surface and can be controlled by a special pen. M ichelle Patterson, who teaches children in the autistic unit at Sabal Elementary, uses the whiteboard because it effectively keeps children involved in her lessons. S tudents with autism typically experience difficulties staying engaged, so if a teacher is standing there lecturing, they are less likely to retain the information they are being given, Ms. P atterson said. If they are actively able to come up to the board and be engaged, they will learn better. Once every two weeks, each class at Sabal Elementary visits the computer lab, where students are trained on Microsoft Office applications such as Word and Pow erpoint, as well as E dmodo, a social-networking site for teachers and students, said Sam Clymer, who teaches in the computer lab. He r ecently conducted a survey to determine the students thoughts on technology in the classroom. Although half of Ms. McMahans second-grade class enjoys learning with iPads and computers, half still prefers to learn the oldfashioned way, Mr. Clymer said. Though some teachers are more comfortable with integrating technology into their lessons than others, Pr incipal Stephanie Hall said the school is focusing on bringing everyone to the same page. As far as technology goes, Id say were at a nine (out of 10), but were still educating students and teachers with the current tools, Ms. McMahan said. W e re committed to our technology vision.LessonsF rom page A1 people who are very supportive of Daily Bread, he said. Every year, they do some type of event like this, but every time its a bit different and a bit bigger. O pen 365 days a year, Da ily Bread provides an average of 215 hot meals a day, Mr. Farrell said, but one day last week, for example, it was 344. I t just depends on how many show up on a given day, he said. In addition to meals, the nonprofit provides an average of 25-45 showers per day and clothing and hygiene items for at least 50 people per day, as well as mail services. The facility also partners with other agencies that provide assistance with services such as health care, food stamps, HIV/AIDS testing, veterans issues and support group meetings. A bout one-third of the facilitys funding comes from its thrift shop on New Ha ven Avenue, Mr. Farrell said. The remainder comes from general donations.FoodF rom page A1 Visit Us @H ometownNewsOL.com

Whats the difference between them wearing a helmet or not and children and adults supposed to be wearing one for bicycles and skateboards in general, and scooters. if they have to wear one, they why dont motorcyclists have to wear one? Its not r ight! Everyone should be safe and motorcyclists think they own the road, too! I agree that they need to be safe and their just as guilty as drivers in general. Its so annoying to see motorcycles everywhere! They dont even watch out for people behind their o wn wheel. They should be wearing their helmets to be safe too. Law or no law! Its not right! I thought they were supposed to create jobs hereIn spite of what the president says about creating jobs and or saving jobs, consider this one. We can thank Jeff Immelt and the CEOof General Electric and a real good buddy of President Obama. Anyway, General Electric is now planning to move its 115y ear-old division from Wisconsin to Beijing. Is n t that amazing? In addition to moving their headquarters, the company will invest $2 billion in China and train more than 65 engineers to create research centers in China. This is the same GM that made over $5 billion in the U.S. last y ear and paid no taxes, and is the same company that employs more people overseas than it does in the United States. So I dont know what we must assume from this except somebody is telling a little fib. We wouldnt want to call the president a liar. President Obama appointed Mr. Immelt, the General Electric CEO, to head his commission on job creation. Is n t that amazing? He s transferring the jobs over seas. I thought he was supposed to create jobs here. This is just my opinion, but I think this shows a total lack of leadership, at the presidential level. I dont know what you folks are going to do about it in November of next year, but I know what I am going to do about it. He s the same guy that wants to leave in this bill that deleted the dont ask dont tell so gays can serve openly in the military. He wants to leave in the part thats OK with sodomy and beastiality. In case you dont know what beastiality is, look it up in the dictionary. I am offended as a veteran, I am highly appalled and disappointed and Im mad as hell; but Im going to do something about it. Im going to vote, and I want my vote to count; unless someone has a way of disenfranchising my vote. B ut I dont think our brave military and these dedicated people who are giving their lives every day should have a title like that tagged on them. We dont do that, Mr. President. M aybe some of your relatives in these third world countries like the Middle East do that, but not us.The seat belt laws and moreEv ery statistical study of car crashes shows that seat belts cause more injuries than they prevent and make no difference in survival in fatal-speed wrecks. Mo re ov er, seatbelts are not designed for everyone and get r eal about them being adjustable. Ev en most car mechanics will tell you that the things are about as easy to adjust as a wall, and the rest just see dollar signs. M eanwhile, idiots are allowed to weave in and out of traffic on two unstable high-speed wheels, wearing nothing more than a bathing suit, when any biker will tell you that sooner or later, everyone lays it down. Oh, but theyre adults, they have the r ight to choose that. W ell then, adults have the right to choose not to be strapped in a seat belt. Y akking on a cell phone has proven, over and over, to cause more crashes than drunk driving. And texting typing on a tiny writing board while driving? M ost people cant even type on a full-sized keyboard while listening to the radio. This is not a right to choose. Being distracted from your main concern, which is keeping control of your car, causes wrecks. W earing a seat belt may actually contribute to being distracted, by the discomfort. T alking on a cell phone while driving should be illegal unless the phoner and phonee can establish that it was an emergency situation. Looking anywhere except at the road and the mirrors from texting to messing with the radio to putting on makeup are matters for public safety concern. B ut no, the seat belt law is a cash cow for the cops. C ops will actually claim to have seen you without a seatbelt (flatly impossible, through two car windows you usually cant even tell if the person behind the wheel is young or old, male or female, blonde or dark). And when they pull you over, theyll claim, I saw you putting the seatbelt on as you pulled over. (Also flatly impossible, with their lights reflecting off your window. S eat belts do not save lives. Seat belts fill political pockets. If the city, county and state need more money, they can lose half the cops and half their own paychecks. When six cops show up for someone walking their dog before dawn, you know we have too many law enforcement agents and too many laws theyve made up to enforce. When the courts are clogged with people who were arrested for no reason, and then charged with resisting arrest, we are living in a police state to rival anything Stalin ever dreamed of a police state, literally. We need more scientists (including anthropologists). We need more teachers, more library hours, heck, more full-time gardeners to plant and tend trees and food plants. We do not need any more cops, lawyers, judges or politicians. When one retires, do not replace them. And in the meantime, get rid of stupid laws. R equiring an original birth certificate to get a drivers license? F or pitys sake. Half the CEOs of multinational corporations couldnt produce an original birth certificate. And repeal the cash-cow seatbelt law.A rave, for a changeThe holiday season is surrounding us. It is the perfect time to acknowledge friends and family with gifts and sharing time together. It also is a time to thank businesses, associates and vendors for a year of commerce. This rave is to thank the community for supporting the 2011 annual Thanksgiving Rotary event Get Up, Gather, Groove and Gi ve Thanks. The South Brevard Sharing Center benefits from this familyorientated event to get people of all ages and abilities moving on Thanksgiving morning and to help other families who are dependent upon assistance from organizations such as the S haring Center. Each year individuals walk, run, bike or even walk their dog through Melbourne Beach on a two-to-five-mile course by registering and donating food or money as their entry fee. This allows anyone interested in participating in a group event to enter with the contribution meeting their budget, and at the same time 100 percent of the proceeds to go directly to the South Br evard Sharing Center. F or many participants, this is the first group fitness event that they attempt. It is always a lot of fun. B usinesses that actively assisted with Get Up Gather Groove and Give Thanks 2011 and the grass roots distribution of food, fellowship and fitness included: the town of Melbourne Beach, the Melbourne Beach Police and Volunteer Fire departments, the Brevard County Sheriffs Department Citizen Observation P atrol, Eric Ponce State Farm Insurance, Gemini Elementary School, Wendys of Indialantic, 7-11 of Melbourne Beach, Sandbar Pizza, Fast Chicken (located in the Exxon at Melbourne B each), Perfect Pear Catering the Brevard County South Beach R ecreation Center, Dandies Ice Cream, Florida Moving Systems and Glampartyz. The holiday spirit continues to thrive in our community, and it is appreciated. In response to God does not approveY ou Bible thumpers crack me up. Homosexuals wont be Gas price dilemmaIve lived in Melbourne for more than 60 years and Im really upset about the gas prices in Brevard county. Y ou can go north of Eau Gallie and the gas is $3.28, but if you go south of Melbourne, in Palm Bay in south Melbourne, the gas at the Wal-Mart is $3.15. This has been going on for two weeks now. Nobody has changed any prices at all and its just unbelievable that south M elbourne prices are cheaper than north Melbourne prices. I think that they should have an 800 number where people who would like to complain about this, it should be right on the gas pump, so that if youre pumping your gas and you want to complain about the gas price, you can call right then and complain, cause people are getting ripped off. Im the bossObama and his democrats are blaming a Do-Nothing Congress: aimed specifically a the Republican House for not passing his Jobs Act Plan. Fact is: during the last two years of the Bush administration Democrats had control of both houses of Congress, which continued during the first two years of the Obama Pr esidency. He got everything he asked for, Health care, bailouts of banks and mortgage companies, auto industries, stimulus packages result: $14 trillion national debt. Now we see the president flying Air Force One all over the U nited States, blaming the do-nothing Congress for not passing his Jobs Act Plan, a plan that was rejected by both the Republican House and his Democratic-controlled Senate. Last November, the voters said enough is enough, and gave control of the house to Republicans and reduced the Democratic majority in the Senate but that hasnt stopped Obama he now uses Executive Privilege, by-passing Congress to adopt his bill In other words, I dont need the voters, I dont need Congress Im the boss.Republican?I bet my bottom dollar that Jerry Sandusky is a Republican, there is no doubt about it.

I hate to tell you but now is the time people are being judged. Look around you. All people do lately is judge others and be intolerant of anyone who is different. At no place in its more than 30,000 verses does the Bible claim that it is factually accur ate in terms of history, science, geography and all other matters. We are a country of many faiths, many different beliefs. I hope people who think like you are a dying breed. I support equality for all. Scared AmericansY ou are not secure in your homes, persons or property. Y ou have no privacy. You do not have a right to a trial or to face your accuser. What happened to the basic tenets of freedom? Who took them from us? Dont let the government decide what foods or dietary supplements you can use. The pharmaceutical companies and large corporationshave taken over our FDA and government. We are now a country under tyranny, even if you dont wantto believe it. They have scared people with the Patriot Act, and Americans have become cowards not to speak up. M ost people will not take the time to research and find the truth. They have chosen ignorance. Those who know the least obey the best.F eeding the greedThe percent at Target, W almart, Best Buy, Walgreen and other head offices enjoyed a relaxing Thanksgiving Day, you can bet your boots. The 99 percent of their store employees didnt fare so well. M ost had to work on Thanksgiving Day. They worked to feed the greed of the 1 percent. Some had to be at work by 9 p.m. on Thanksgiving, ready to work ov ernight. That meant going to bed in the middle of Thanksgiving Day to get some r est. Others had little time to spend with family who came to enjoy the holiday with them. S adly, other 99 percenters across the U.S. helped feed the greed of the 1 percent. They lined up, camped, pepper-sprayed or shot their fellow 99 percenters to get the bargains. In their greed, they too made store employees work. H ad everyone stayed home until 5 or 6 a.m. Friday morning, you can be sure next year the greedy 1 percent would not have those stores open. Their employees would not be forced to work. They wouldnt staff empty stores. D id you shop on Thanksgiving evening or overnight? Y ou helped feed the greed of the 1 percent. Y ou forced employees of those multi-nationals to work. Y ou were as guilty as the 1 percent.RantsF rom page A6 Br ead means the homeless will not have to relocate to Sar no Road, or elsewhere, as previously considered. Mr. Farrell said Daily Br eads expansion would not have been possible without the large contribution by Mr. and Mrs. Buescher. The reason were here today is because of the magnificent generosity of Howard and Mercedes Buescher, Mr. F arrell said. Their gift enabled up to purchase this land that were standing on. I v e been in the fundraising business for 30 years, and this is the most magnanimous gesture in fundraising Ive ever seen, Mr. Farrell said. Mr. Buescher said he became involved several y ears ago when his wife signed him up to help feed the homeless as a Daily Bread volunteer on Thanksgiving Day. I looked outside, and it was cold and damp and r ainy, Mr. Buescher recalled. Y ou couldnt see around the corner because the line was so long. I kept thinking, How are they going to enjoy their dinner when they are cold and wet? I said, We need to do something, Mr. Buescher said. It has taken six years to put the shovels in the ground. Officials said plans to provide homeless facilities on Sar no Road are dead, thanks to the new facility. Mr. Farrell said the 5,000square foot facilities will enable Daily Bread to feed its clients indoors, and relieve public concerns about people loitering in public. U pon its renovation, the kitchen facility will be able to feed everyone inside, no longer exposed to the heat in summer or the cold in winter, Mr. Farrell said. W e ll have adequate facilities for three showers, and there will be enough waiting room for those waiting for services, Mr. Farrell said. B y feeding and clothing people today, tomorrow has been assured, Mr. Farrell said of the facility, which feeds more than 350 people daily. Mr. Farrell said the facility will include room for Alcoholics Anonymous and for its board of directors. Mr. and Mrs. Buescher led the ceremonial groundbreaking that included Melbourne City Council members Mark LaRusso, Mike Nowlin and Greg Jones, and city manager Jack Schluckebier. Mr. LaRusso said the Daily Br ead expansion isnt just for the homeless. W e have children whose only meal comes from their hot lunch at school, Mr. LaRusso said. You have the elderly who are living on S ocial Security, and you have the working poor living paycheck to paycheck. Mr. Farrell was also presented with a $10,000 check by J an Hill of Wells Fargo A dvisors of Melbourne. W e look for ways in which we can contribute to programs in the community, and this was one of them, Ms. Hill said.BreadF rom page A1 get something from the car, he said. The man went outside, authorities said, and never came back. Sh e called him. He laughed. I stole your car, said Michael Pratt, a 27y ear-old from New Port Richey, according to the P asco Sheriffs Office. He hung up. The victim, who is 35, lives in Zephyrhills and r eferred to Pratt as a friend in a report. The car, a silver 2012 Ford Focus, was a rental. The woman told investigators she tried to call Pratt for two days before she called the S heriffs Office for help. Pr att called her four days after the movie outing and said he dumped the car in a Walmart parking lot in N ew Port Richey, authorities said. Deputies found the car and Pratt was arrested Wednesday.

F irst. We feel that the more information and tools we can provide for people, the better off they will be in making informed decisions about which facility to go to. To take it a step further, anyone with a GPSenabled smart phone can also receive plotted maps and directions to all four H ealth First hospitals, Mr. C ohen said. D uring an emergency, one of the most precious things you cant afford to waste is time, Mr. Cohen said. When you or a loved one needs emergency care, y ou want to know how quickly that help will be available. If youre on the r oad, you need to know the quickest route to the ER and how long youll have to wait before the injuries or illness is assessed. The wait times are updated around the clock via the www.BrevardERs.org we bsite, which was launched last August. W ithin the text message r esponse, there is a link to this website, which provides detailed information about each of the hospitals, as well as tips for determining whether to visit an emergency r oom or walk-in clinic for yo ur injury or illness. The (text message) service was designed to provide that on-the-go accessibility for those who are not at home in front of their computers, but r ather for the mom whose kid twists his ankle on the soccer field, Mr. Elliot said. This is a much more instantaneous and accur ate system than has ever existed before, and it does offer that peace of mind during those times of emergency. CAPE CANAVERAL C entral Florida has some of the nations top television meteorologists; all of whom carry impeccable credentials and impressive, accur ate weather forecasts. However, when it comes to predicting the seas, sometimes the future casts can be a little misleading, especially if youre considering a cruise aboard the Victory C asino Cruises ship that moors and departs Port C anaveral 13 times a week. The ride is typically a lot smoother than what the w eather folks would lead y ou to believe. V ictory Captain Tim Levensaler is senior captain at V ictory Casino Line. He holds the highest United S tates Coast Guard license as a Master Mariner Unlimited tonnage and also holds a U.S. Coast Guard endorsement as Unlimited Pilot for the Port Canaveral ship channel and approaches. C aptain Levensaler has been sailing on various ships worldwide for 29 y ears. Hes been sailing from Po rt C anaveral since 1985. All of the local weather forecast venues get their information from the N ational Oceanographic A tmospheric Administration websites, Capt. Levensaler points out. These w ebsites offer a very general forecast for waters 20 and even 60 miles offshore in unprotected waters. The winds and, more importantly, the seas and waves in our operating area are in actuality a fraction of the broadcast heights. That means a much smoother sail than what you might be lead to believe. C apt. Levensaler further says Port Canaveral is unique because it offers natural barriers that significantly moderate the forecasted weather in the operating area; specifically The C ape itself and barrier reefs that extend out seven miles from the Cape. This enables the Victory Casino Cruises to operate in protected waters through the fall and winter season when winds are predominantly from the Nor th and Northeast. The Victory 1 operates in a very small area between three and five miles East and Northeast of the Port C anaveral ship channel entrance, Capt. Levensaler adds. This area is protected by the Cape and reefs. So next time youre contemplating a fun time on the Vi ctory Casino Cruises and theres a concern about publicly forecasted choppy seas, be sure to check Capt. Levensalers official Weather B log and forecast at www.victorycasinocruises.com.

Local foundation provides grant for childrens centerB oth retired schoolteachers, Melbourne Village residents Grace Bristol and G ladys Hansen had a lifelong passion for improving the lives children. So just before they died in the late 1990s, they established the Bristol-Hansen Charitable Foundation and set aside the majority of their assets to assist various organizations in the local community in reaching their goals. One of these organizations is the Childrens Advocacy Center of Brevard, which since 1996, has worked alongside a variety of other agencies to investigate allegations of child abuse and the provision of services to the most severely abused children in the local community. Among several other nonprofits, the Rockledgebased center was awarded a grant for $3,700 this month for its one-of-a-kind Clinical I ntervention Program. The mission of the Child Ad vocacy Center fits directly with our guidelines as a foundation and is very deserving of this grant, said H ugh Normile, a longtime friend of Ms. Bristol and Ms. H ansen and a trustee for the foundation. They assist children in the worst-case scenarios and are devoted to bettering their lives. The grant, which was applied for in September, was actually awarded to the Fr iends of the Child Advocacy Center of Brevard group, which is an all-volunteer nonprofit established to increase awareness of the issues of child abuse and neglect and raise funds for the center. The money from the grant will be used to update the client-data management system within the centers Clinical Intervention Program, which provides onsite crisis intervention and short-term counseling for child victims in Brevard C ounty, as well as their nonoffending parents and siblings. F or years, we have operated with a (data system) that one of our wonderful volunteers created, but the time has come to replace it, said Teresa Munroe, communications and development coordinator for the Childrens Advocacy Center of Brevard. This new system comes with a lot more user-friendly features and will help our counselors r ecord more efficient client data and assessment tools in order to better assist our victims. In past years, Ms. Munroe said, much of the programs client data had to be recorded manually and became increasingly difficult to maintain. W e re so gracious that foundations such as the Br istol-Hansen (Charitable F oundation) understand and support the work we do and can see how this improvement will greatly assist us in the future, Ms. M unroe said. This is such wonderful news for us. R epresentatives from the Child Advocacy Center and Fr iends organization attended an awards luncheon earlier this month, hosted by the Bristol-Hansen Charitable Foundation. Dur ing the event, all of this years grantees, including the Brevard County Library Foundation, the S outh Brevard Sharing Center, the Florida Wildlife Hospital in Melbourne, Club Esteem in Melbourne, Unitarian Universalist Church in West Melbourne, Devereux behavioral health organization in Viera, as w ell as the Child Advocacy C enter, were awarded their individual grants an opportunity to discuss the need for them. W e find that the luncheon is one of the most valuable things we do as an organization because it gives all of the recipients a chance to learn about one another, Mr. Normile said. Fr om there, there are different partnerships that develop all across the county, and we all take something from it.

I dont mind when Christmas things start showing up in displays at hobby and sewing stores in August. I want it to be here all year long. I think God does too, only not in the commercial way that the stores have in mind, but in the genuine heartfelt change we see in the world every D ecember. Oh, I am fond of the sparkle of the lights and the richness of the smells and the joyful sounds of carols and bells, but I love, love, love THE LOVE that is in the air. In the dark of winter, there is the greatest light of hope in all the loving that we do for each other. The love we do for friends and relatives for sure, but most especially in the things we do for strangers; from Merry Christmas as we pass people we dont know, to putting change in a bell r ingers bucket, to providing r esources to non-profits that help those in need. When we do these things we are the Christ in Christmas. We add to the love that fills the air and overwhelms us with a sense of good, a sense of the sacred. M ost people dont know that the Christmas stories about Jesus in the Bible had very modest beginnings as a small Jewish sects radical opposition to an oppressive and violent empire of man. The Nativity narratives that form the nucleus of our Christmas traditions began as a revolution of love by J esus followers who were bolding claiming that God worked through ordinary J oes (and Marys), not elite emperors. And how they did this was simply brilliant; they co-opted the claims that the R oman Empire made about their god, Caesar, turning R omes claims on their head as claims about Christ. Long before these things we re associated with Jesus, R ome claimed that Caesar was born of a virgin; associated with a star, the Son of God; Lord; Prince of Peace; R edeemer; and Savior of the W orld. Two outstanding modern Protestant and C atholic theologians, (respectively) Marcus Borg and John Dominic Crossan, note that the Jesus followers use of such phrases and claims for, the newborn J esus would [have been] either low lampoon or high treason and since empires always know their opponents, Rome was not laughing. The lofty phrases and claims were reserved for elite born emperors not lowly born peasant boys, and certainly not for those whom the empire convicts and executes. The Roman Empire sought peace on earth, the P ax Romana, through violent oppression and the deifying of its oppressive leaders. The J esus followers claimed the opposite for its leader,i.e., J esus, sought peace on earth through non-violent love and kindness. It s a tribute to those early followers of Jesus that the terms Rome once gave to C aesar have forever become terms that we (and much of the rest of the world) associate with Jesus, most especially in the Nativity stories and at Christmas. Mo re ov er, every year at Christmas we prove that peace on earth through nonviolent love and kindness is not impossible because for a month we practice it on a wide scale and it works. I cannot wait until we do it all y ear long. M erry Christmas to all of y ou my dear readers! The Rev.Scott Elliott is the pastor at Riviera United Church of Christ in Palm Bay.

I see in the papers that Scott and Haridopolus are going to push for over $1 billion more into education for the state. I believe it is their intention to direct it toward a scientific curriculum, eliminating wasteful subject matters like humanities. I have been waiting for some response from a r eal educator. Nothing so far. Y ou will notice that I did not use the titles governor or senate leader.

The Brevard Community Chorus and the Brevard Childrens Chorus are each holding auditions for new members in the New Year. The Brevard Community Chorus, under the direction of David Vogeding for the 2011-12 season, is an all-volunteer community ensemble serving south and central Brevard C ounty. Members rehearse w eekly on Tuesdays at the Br evard Community C ollege art wing, adjacent to the King Center. R ehearsals will resume on Jan. 10 and auditions will be held after rehearsal on Jan. 10, 17 and 24. Past singing experience is r equired. Singers should also be able to read music proficiently and be prepared to sight read. All voices are invited, but tenors and basses are particularly needed. The chorus will perform its spring concert, A Spr ing Renewal, on May 5 at 7:30 p.m. It will include the Mass in E Flat by Fr antz Schubert and selections from contempora ry composer John Rutter. Da vid Vogeding has been serving as the groups director this season while R obert Lamb is on sabbatical. I t s been a wonderful experience, he said. Its been a learning curve, getting to know them and the group getting to know me. I am looking forward to the spring program. Schuberts Mass is one of those gems in music literature. Its one of the most beautiful pieces that Schubert ever did. It needs a good-size chorus, and thats why Id like people to audition. We could use many, many singers for this performance. J ohn Rutter, a contemporary English composer, is a favorite, as well. R utters music can take something old and freshen it to the point where you think youve never heard it in this new way, and he takes a piece of new music and makes you believe you have heard it before. Br evard Childrens Chorus, under the direction of Joani Slawson, will hold auditions on Jan. 21 for singers in grades fourth through 10th. Auditions are from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Central Church of Christ in Cocoa. Students in public and private schools, as well as homeschooled students are invited to audition. The Brevard Childrens Chorus is open to children from throughout the county. Begun in 2004, the group performs choral music at venues and events including Christmas performances with the Brevard Symphony Orchestra and the Brevard C ommunity Chorus. J oani Slawson, the groups director, said that the group was looking for children, who love to sing and want to share their talent with the community. The art of musicmaking is more than just singing notes, she said. E very week, we work on integrating basic music theory, sight-singing and music history to help make the experience meaningful and fun. The group rehearses on Thursday nights from 78:30 p.m. at Central Church of Christ in C ocoa.

MELBOURNE Before golfers tee it up at local golf courses, they usually practice. That practice can include surfing the Web for the best price for a round of golf. As a result, some golfers are grumbling that Melbournes two city-owned courses charge among the highest rates in Brevard C ounty even though the courses are not in pristine condition. In golf, a courses physical condition fairways with a consistent carpeting of grass, well-manicured putting greens make for a better golfing experience. B ecause of a comparative lack of manpower due to budget constraints, Melbournes courses cant compete with the quality of other courses. M any golfers are sticking with Melbourne despite higher rates, while other golfers surf the Internet for better rates. B ut prices can vary depending on day and time. F or example: Melbournes two public courses Crane Creek R eserve and Mallards Landing charge $41.34, after taxes, for an 18-hole r ound of golf. The purchase of a $40 frequent player card reduces the $41.34 fee by $5 per round. At Baytree National Golf Links, a superbly conditioned layout in Melbourne, golfers can play for $30, or less, after noon with an I nsider card. But nonI nsiders can pay $53 plus tax before 11 a.m. At The Majors Golf Club in Palm Bay, a well-conditioned course, golfers who buy a $30 Insider card can enjoy a round for $23 after 1 p .m. on a busy weekend. B ut non-resident, nonI nsiders can pay $55 before noon. At the areas newest course, Duran Golf Club, which opened in 2005, residents can play for $35 after 1 p.m. However, that rate is $66 before 11 a.m. for nonr esidents. At Viera East Golf C ourse in Melbourne, golfers can pay up to $51 before 11 a.m. on weekends for non-residents but can also pay just $25 after 2 p .m., while risking being ov ertaken by darkness. Three Brevard Countyr un courses The Habitat in Valkaria, Savannahs in M erritt Island and Spessard-Holland in Melbourne B each can be played for under $30 with a discount card. S ome golfers find bargains a short drive away, at S andridge Golf Club in I ndian River County, Sebastian Municipal Course, or Ha rm ony Golf Preserve in Har mony, where golfer can enjoy a superior track for less than $30. So why does Melbourne charge more than betterconditioned courses? B ob Nachreiner, golf director for the city of Melbourne, said there are numerous reasons for Melbournes rates. Mr. Nachreiner emphasized that unlike corporateo wned courses, Melbourne courses receive no city funding and must be selfsustaining. Mr. Nachreiner said some of the grumbling occurred because Melbourne did away with its resident discount of $10 per round. Mr. Nachreiner said the elimination of the residents discount helped Melbourne balance its budget and affected few people because most golfers are snowbirds or dont live in M elbourne. D espite the adjustment, M elbourne courses attract a steady stream of golfers, mainly because of their central location, and the fact Melbourne allows golfers to walk. Most courses restrict walking and r equire the rental of automated carts. M any seniors prefer Melbourne courses because they are comparatively easier to play. M elbourne must charge a set rate to survive financially, Mr. Nachreiner said. Last y ear, the Melbourne courses were about $100,000 in the black, but in the previous year, they lost about $100,000 and took out a loan to balance their budget. B ecause of the stagnant economy, some courses r educe prices such as The M ajors in Palm Bay, which offered rates of $10 in the heat of summer. Mr. Nachreiner said he cant go that low because of w ear and tear on Melbournes courses. When The Majors had golf for ten bucks last summer, they had 120 players and they made $1,200. I had 50 players and I made $1,200, Mr. Nachreiner said. I cant let someone play for less than it cost me to put them out there, he said. Mr. Nachreiner said two y ears ago, Melbourne had to outlay $40,000 just for batteries for its golf carts. The Melbourne courses have a combined annual budget of $2.7 million to cover operating costs and capital expenses, and they employ a combined 15 people without relying on city tax revenues. Y ou can go to Remington and pay $25 and get breakfast, a hot dog and lunch, Mr. Nachreiner said. I cant compete with that. I would go out of business. W e were lowering our prices and we were going in the hole. Thats why we had to raise them. Other courses have other funding, he said. M elbournes rates are set by the City Council, but there are bargains. A walking golfer who purchases a $725 annual membership and plays four times a week pays $10.33 per round, Mr. N achreiner said. A member who rents a cart and plays once a week pays $29.79 per r ound. W e used to get 100,000 to 120,000 rounds a year, and were doing about 55,000 rounds now, he said. And were probably r ight at the top of the list. In fact, Melbourne golfers bought 230 of the $40 discount cards when they were offered in November. Mr. Nachreiner said superintendents at highend courses are accustomed to golfers grumbling about overseeding or heatr elated damage to greens. I know the superintendent of Tiger Woods course in Isleworth personally, and he hears grumbling all the time, Mr. Nachreiner said. B ut he acknowledges that M elbourne isnt Isleworth. I have a four-man maintenance crew, and most courses have a 12-person crew, he said.

H appy Kwanzaa! Whatever your religious or secular belief, I want to wish y ou and yours the very best this holiday season. I love this time of year. Its a time for families and friends to be together time for love and harmony. As in many years past, our family and some friends and neighbors will be celebrating this holiday season with a loved one serving overseas. Keep them in your thoughts and prayers, and set a seat aside at your table so that everyone who gathers with you will keep in mind the sacrifice these men and women are making for us. T ake the time to tell your loved ones how you feel about them. Take a moment to say hello to a stranger or make a new friend. Take a moment to give something back. We can all be heroes, even if all we give someone is a smile. As tough as times are these days, there is still much to be thankful for. No matter how difficult things are, we still have each other. We still have our family, our friends, and ourselves. If even for just a day, take a moment to think only of the wonderful gifts you have in life. Think of something or someone that makes you happy and hold that close. At this time of year we all tend to be more human, more kind and more caring. My wish is that we would just keep and share this feeling for 12 months instead of only one. W ith that said, I now present you the Twelve Days of Christmas, golf style.
