In Oc tober 2004, as he completed paperwork along U.S. 1, a woman suddenly pulled her van beside his patrol car. Sh e was pregnant and experiencing labor pains. When I got up to the v an initially, I though she was having labor pains and needed guidance to the hospital," Sgt. Miller re called. "But when I looked in the window, it was pretty clear she was not going to make it to the hospital." Sgt. Miller delivered the pregnant woman's baby by the road, cutting the newborn's umbilical cord, wrapping the baby in spare clothing, and awaiting an ambulance. On Monday, Sgt. Miller and the boy he brought into the world, 7-year-old Co r ey Savage of Palm Bay, we re r eunited once again. Co r ey was among the children who received a shopping spree from M elbourne police officers as part of the police department's annual "S hop With A Cop" program. The Melbourne officers treated 20 children to a shopping spree in the W alMart toy department on Wickham Road.

W ith a history dating back to 1968, the group formed when they were teenagers in the rural town of E dmonton, Ky. "W e were just kids living on this 500-acre farm that belonged to my parents," said Richard Young, guitarist and lead vocalist for the band. "Right in the middle of the farm was this old farmhouse that my grandma gave to us as a r ehearsal space. We played there every day growing up."

pounds of cocaine in her breast and buttock implants. The woman, who was not identified, hoped to sneak by police with help from her plunging neckline and tight clothes. I nstead, she attracted the attention of airport security, according to a D aily Mail story. When she couldn't explain her trip to South America, two female security officers searched her and found the fake implants, which had cocaine crystals molded into them, the newspaper r eported. They stopped her for questioning because she was so alluring and her story about why she was in South America just fell apart," Antonio Di Greco, police chief at Fiumicino airport, said. After being pulled aside, Di Greco said the model became aggressive with officers. S he was being held at the Rome airport on charges of international drug trafficking. From wenatcheeworld.com: Man says he drove 225 miles with dead wife A uthorities say a Br itish Columbia man drove about 225 miles after his 75-year-old wife died in the car next to him, uncertain whether he could cross the Canadian border with her. T onasket Police Chief R obert Burks says the 71y ear-old man didn't know what to do, so he kept driving. The man was v acationing in Oregon when his wife began suffering a medical condition. They were trying to get home to Oliver, B.C., but she died near Pasco, Wash. The Wenatchee World r eports the man on S unday called the vehicle emergency system, OnStar, which put him in touch with dispatchers in O kanogan County. A dispatcher convinced him to stop at the Tonasket police station, about 20 miles south of Canada. Burks says the woman was taken to North Valley H ospital and pronounced dead. He says police determined her death wasn't suspicious. From nydailynews.com: U tah man crashes $380,000 Lamborghini just 6 hours after winning car in contest A contest winner saw his good fortune come to a screeching halt on S unday when he crashed a brand new $380,000 Lamborghini he won in a local convenience store contest six hours after he got the keys. On his first night as a Lambo owner, David Dopp took his new wheels out for a spin on the outskirts of his hometown of Santaquin, Utah. He told KSL-TV that he ran into trouble when he took a curve too fast, hit a patch of ice or gravel, crashed through a fence post and finally landed in a field. Luckily, besides his pride and prize, Dopp wasn't injured. "M y heart pretty much fell out," Dopp's wife, Annette Dopp told KSL. They said they were OK. Then came, you know, that feeling when your heart drops and you're like, Oh, my gosh. What do we do now?'" The Italian sports car, which is insured, is currently awaiting repairs to its front end, wheel and passenger side, the Associated Press reported. B ut even when it's fixed, Dopp said he doesn't plan on going on too many more joyrides. He said he's giving up the keys and selling the car, which is valued at around $380,000, to pay off some bills and buy his wife another car, the Salt Lake Tr ibune reported. "Everything is going to be okay and we'll move on from here," he told ABC 4. Fr om sltrib.com: P olice:Thieves pocketdial 911,leading to arrest M adison,Wis. community resource officer. Officer Koeberl said each youngster was given a $50 shopping spree, and the department collected an extra $100 because "kids tend to go over a little bit," he said. "I t' s actually a really good experience for the officers, too, because they volunteer their time and enjoy it," Officer Koebarl said. Whatever perception people have of police officers, we want it to be a positive perception at an early age," Officer Koeberl said. Officer Koeberl said the highlight of the kids' shopping spree was the r eunion of Sgt. Miller and Corey. Sgt. Miller delivered the child on the side of the r oad with a pocket knife," Officer Koeberl said. "The mom was trying to get to the hospital, but she went into labor. "I t was one of those situations where there r eally was not an option because the baby wasn't waiting. Sgt. Miller called Fi re R escue right away, but the baby wasn't waiting for Fire Rescue," Officer Koeberl said. F or Sgt. Miller, bringing a child into the world re mains a memorable and fulfilling experience. Sgt. Miller recounted the fateful night. "I was by the side of the r oad near the Nissan dealership, doing paperwork, and she pulled up in a van," Sgt. Miller recalled "S he was standing up and breathing hard and was kind of out of it." "I got her off her feet, and I could see it was going to be a good birth, head first with no complications. We went ahead with the full birth of the child. He said, "I located a hair barrette to use as a clamp to cut the umbilical cord." Sgt. Miller said delivering a child made up for the tragedies police sometimes encounter. "W e face people's pain and despair year after y ear, and it can take a toll on you," Sgt. Miller said. When you have the opportunity to bring life into the world, there is no better joy." Sgt. Miller said the M elbourne police officers enjoy mentoring children, who are the same age as his own children. "W e take kids on field trips throughout the state," he said. "We've seen a lot of these kids grow up in the neighborhood. They know me by first name now." Ex plaining the goal of "S hop With A Cop," Sgt. M iller said: "We'd rather they grow up and be doctors and join the Peace C orps and make the world a better place. "I t' s a humanitarian effort to show we care about our community, and the kids in our community. It's important to uphold the image that people expect from us on a daily basis," Sgt. Miller said.

Photo courtesy of The Kentucky HeadhuntersThe Kentucky Headhunters, which won a variety of Country Music Association Awards, Academy of Country Music Awards and Grammy Awards, will perform at Lou's Blues in Indialantic Thursday, Jan. 12.members come and go throughout the years, but today, the Kentucky Headhunters is comprised of the Y oung brothers, as well as their cousin, Greg Martin, who plays lead guitar, and Doug Phelps, bass guitarist and lead vocalist. While they still rehearse and write music in that old house, the band has come a long way since its days of playing on the farm. They've traveled the world and made a serious name for themselves, earning a slew of Country Music Association Awards, A cademy of Country Music A wards, and even a few Grammy Awards in the early 1990s. The band is best known for its hits "Oh, Lonesome Me ," "R ock & Roll Angel," "D umas Walker" and "Walk S oftly on this Heart of M ine." The group, whose members grew up listening to the likes of Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones, said they came into the country music genre almost by accident. "P eople describe us as a S outhern rock and blues band, with some country flavor," Mr. Young said. "I think it's our rural sensibilities that give our band that little touch of country." The Headhunters released its 12th album Oct. 18, called "Dixie Lullabies," which the guys actually r ecorded entirely in the old farmhouse in Edmonton, Ky. "I t was something we always wanted to do," Mr. Y oung said. "Our other albums have all been r ecorded in major studios, but we really wanted an opportunity to open our hearts a little more and write directly from them. It's not something you'd expect from a bunch of old salty dog southern rockers." The album's first single, "G r eat Acoustics," which will be released Jan. 2, can be described as a "very modern-age approach on love," Mr. Young said. The whole album reads like a book," he said. "We're r eally excited about it." The Kentucky Headhunters will be playing a few songs from their new album, as well as some of their most popular hits Thursday, Jan. 12 at Lou's B lues in Indialantic. Louie Andrus, owner of Lou's Blues, said he's already r eceived a great response from the community about the band's performance. "T hey're a real personable group of guys and have been around for so long and have so many hits, we are just honored to have someone of their caliber on our stage," Mr. Andrus said. Mr. Young said he and his band mates are equally excited to kick off their 2012 tour in the beautiful Florida sunshine. "W e' re r eady to come over to Florida and play for our friends there in Brevard C ounty," Mr. Young said. The room has a cool vibe, and I think it'll be a jam-up time." The Kentucky Headhunters will play Thursday,Jan.12 at 8 p.m.at Lou's Blues,3191 N.Highway A1A,Indialantic. T ickets are $25 and can be purchased in advance at Lou's Blues or the day of the event.HeadhunterF rom page A1 688495 EVERYTHING MUST GO!

A ccording to Madison police, Jason S. Hamielec, 29, and Brian A.

The two even talked about how police would be looking for a blue Dodge Durango without license plates, so they decided put the plates back on, DeSpain said. When then the pair pulled into a parking lot near the Video X-Change, they noticed a couple of squad cars, DeSpain said. The next thing they knew, several officers, a couple with guns drawn, were y elling, "Police! Show your hands!"

Brevard County's Y ear in ReviewThere was hardly a dull moment in 2011 for Space C oast residents. Fr om tragedy and mayhem to new beginnings and stories of success, there is much to look back on this year. He re 's a glimpse at some of the headline-grabbing events that helped shape 2011. 10.KSC offers tours of the Vehicle Assembly B uilding The Kennedy Space C enter Visitor Complex opened the doors to its longstanding Vehicle Assembly Building on Nov. 1, allowing guests to tour the building originally used for assembly of the S aturn V rocket for the A pollo program. This was the first time in more than 30 years that the largest single-story building in the world was opened to the general public. 9.Palm Bay fire fee defeated Ending a contentious City Council battle, city leaders in Palm Bay voted 5-0 earlier this month to terminate the proposed fire fee, which would have billed residents $192 to $292 annually to fund the city's fire department. The battle to quash the fee was led by Palm Bay Ma y or John Mazziotti. 8.Palm Bay Little Leaguers show their skills The Palm Bay East Little League All-Stars baseball team made a return trip to the Senior Little League W orld Series in Bangor, M aine, on Aug. 21. The team, which previously qualified for the W orld Series in 2010, is the only team from Brevard C ounty to ever qualify for the World Series. 7.Beachside residents help save post office from closure After learning that their longstanding post office was on a long list of potential closures, a group of concerned residents in M elbourne Beach initiated a letter-writing campaign and gained more than 1,000 signatures on a petition to save the historic branch. Se veral weeks later, they we re informed the Melbourne Beach Post Office was no longer on the chopping block. 6.Melbourne cop sues city Fi r ed Melbourne police officer Frank Carter filed suit against the city of Melbourne May 18 for damages and reinstatement after the State Attorney's Office dropped all criminal charges against him. Mr. Carter was arrested and charged with felony crimes. As president of the M elbourne Police Union, Mr. Carter frequently opposed former Chief Donald Carey. 5.Community mourns loss of Melbourne Beach mayor F ollowing a battle with cancer, Melbourne Beach Ma y or Rita Karpie died J uly 6 at a local hospice center. Ms. Karpie, 61, who also served as an assistant biology professor at Brevard C ommunity College, was elected mayor in 2008. 4.Shooting victim's memorial draws hundreds R esidents of Brevard C ounty and beyond attended a paddle outA countdown of the top 10 news stories of 2011See R EVIEW, A9

P eople need to listen to what Trump says and take him seriously. I am not thrilled with Romney, but anyone would be better than what we have.Response to Welfare cards for liquor?'I can't believe what I read under the "Welfare cards for liquor? commentary. The writer claims to see "all welfare cards" being used for liquor and gaming casinos and wonders why it seems so difficult for the government to take "these cards" and cancel them so they can't be used again. I read at the beginning of the Rants & Raves section, that statements would be checked for accuracy, and that made me wonder why this commentary was printed in the first place. I find no value in it. It's not thought-provoking. It's not inspiring in any way, and it's not humorous in a comical or satirical way. It 's actually boring, "gossipish" and self-satisfying to the reader who already "knows" that "welfare cards," as they are erroneously called by the writer, are nothing but a free credit card for boozing; gambling and assorted other low-life activities. The writer can probably spout out another blurb about seeing "those cards" again all the time being used to buy cigarettes and porno books and movies. I think if someone actually witnesses such abuse of food stamps (the actual term not "welfare card") and as frequently as this was supposedly seen by the writer, that it would have been reported to a local agency or local town hall officials, not written up as a commentary to fuel the fire of narrow minds that hold negative views on such "give-away" programs in the first place. W ithout checking my facts, I will state that there are more people duly receiving food stamp assistance without any additional financial assistance. It is a myth that people who receive food stamps are on welfare." They are not. There are far more people applying for and receiving food stamps now than ever before. Many are working families with paychecks that don't cover bills anymore, and many are servicemen and servicewomen who can't make it financially when they return to a dismal economic scene. F ood stamps and families that receive them don't need any added negative publicity, even on Page 6 of a folksy, hometown free paper. They will go under and around the wallI would like to make a comment on the Mexican wall they are proposing building. C ould you please look up in history about the building of the Berlin Wall in Germany and find out how many people were killed trying to get over, under or through it? There were literally thousands of people trying to get back to family who have come over the wall. I think is was somewhere in 1967 that the wall was knocked down. P eople from all over the world went over there and knocked it down with small hammers, took little bits and pieces. It will not work if literally thousands of people have been killed trying to get through that wall, and I can see the same thing happening with the Mexican border. It 's a waste of money because they will dig tunnels, they will go around it and they will find other ways of coming around it. P lease look it up at www.BerlinWall.com. Thank you.Those women are sinnersThank you, H ometown News for giving me the opportunity to report my rant. It starts with the words: Are not those women that r eported their sexual relationships with Herman Cain sinners themselves? I think so. Is there a presidential candidate who is without sin? If not, a sinner will be our next president. This sinner still likes Herman Cain.If you don't like Christmas, go to EuropeI am so tired about all this (pc?) about Christmastime. Let us have some peace for a break. Leave us alone. Where do you people come from? Who died and left y ou boss? All of a sudden now, especially in Boca Raton, I am so disappointed in them for letting them have their way. That is the worst thing you can do. We need to fight, and we need to stand up to people and put a stop to this. If y ou don't like it people, you don't like Christmas, then go to Europe. This is America. We were here first, so we had this like this for 200 years. Get off of it. Get a life and stop bothering people about Christmas. We need Christmas more than ever right now.In the Year 2020It is now 2020, Obama still "Occupies the Oval Office," living in a tent on the West Lawn, having anointed himself "Dear Leader of the 57 States." W ith the Supreme Court deciding that the government could make you do anything it wanted to, "Obamacare" began in 2014, collapsing the U.S. economy. U nemployment is at 25 percent, and the dollar is no longer the world's reserve currency. F ood stamps, emblazed with Obama's portrait, are now the common currency, although most other countries won't accept them. The New York Times recently praised Michelle Obama for receiving a Noble Prize for her discovery that proper diet and exercise were the cure for obesity. The environmentalists and the EPA have successfully shut down all oil production in the country. The only oil that is available is used to lubricate bicycle chains. Government Motor's Chevy Volt, the "electric car" that gets 40 miles on battery and the remaining 320 miles on gasoline, is no longer able to transport commuters. Now sitting idle, they spontaneously combust, consuming their surroundings in a fiery blaze. While declaring this to be a re-Volt-ing development, M otor Trend magazine still voted the Chevy Volt the "H ottest Car of the Year." N ot realizing that the only difference between the Volt and a steam locomotive is that the Volt burns coal somewhere else, environmentalists considerate it to be their crowning achievement. C alifornia, New Mexico and Arizona have returned to M exico without a shot being fired. M ost Americans had long since fled, and it is now called Terra del Norte, where the drug industry is flourishing and drugs are being sold by undocumented pharmacists. The country awaits "Dear Leader's" return from his w eekly vacation to hear his electrifying oratory on this development. S ocial Security went bankrupt in 2017, as predicted, with Medicare going bankrupt a few years earlier. B eing his magnanimous self, "Dear Leader" decreed extra rations of chicken noodle soup for seniors to cure whatever ails them. Seniors, who can still remember that far back, sit numbly in their rocking chairs talking about something called freedom, but no reference to this idea can be found in any school text books. The question is will the "Baby Boom generation" be the generation that allows freedom to become extinct?Crossword puzzle changedH i. My only reason for calling is to say that I'm kind of disappointed in the difference in the crossword puzzle. It 's funny how things seem to change when you like them the way they are. I liked the crossword puzzles you used to have, but in the last couple of issues you have had puzzles that are not as good, as far as I'm concerned. That's all. I just wanted to mention that.P ayback the Social Security trillions of dollarsThe best way to repair the Social Security and Medicare is for the government to pay back the $2.2 trillion they have borrowed over the years, interest-free, from Social S ecurity, which is a loan from the American people without their permission or knowledge. And now the Republicans want to "welsh" on the deal. That's why they wanted to privatize Social Security so they can kill off the agency they owe $2 trillion to. That's $2 trillion they can spread around in tax cuts, graft, corr uption and everything else, on top of the insider trading. So why doesn't the government just pay back the $2 trillion they borrowed from the American people out of the Social Security fund over the years and forget about all the discussion because Social Security has nothing Y ear's end review of Rants and RavesI am an avid reader of your Rants & Raves section of the H ometown News. I have put together a list of topics Brevardians have most written about in 2011 in the Rants and Raves sections, as I remember them. He re are the topics (in no particular order): "ObamaCare," Social Security and Medicare, Waste Management, larger trash cans and recycling, dogs on the beach and service dogs, the political left vs. the political right, service and servers, thrift stores, Palm Bay city management, Melbourne's Daily Bread, the high-speed rail, illegal aliens, Brevard drivers, red light cameras, oil and gas prices, America's economic problems, speaking English, casinos in Brevard, drug testing, Obama's birth certificates, yard sale signs, bike riding on the streets, Osama B in Laden, the Postal Service, same-sex marriages, the space program, Casey Anthony, Palm Bay fire fees and stormwater fees, term limits for Congress, outsourcing of jobs and replacement parts, taxes, the Tea Party, jobs, bullying and the Palm Bay firefighters. Y ou might have figured out that I live in Palm Bay, but county-wide, we all seem to be talking about the same things, at least in Rants & Raves. Thank you and your paper for keeping our minds alert. Ha ve a happy New Year. E ditor's note:Thank you! Your thoughts are a nice addition to our end-of-the-year coverage.Attacking the RepublicansEv ery time a Republican starts to look like he might have a chance to be the nominee the lame stream, leftwing media goes on the attack. They ruined Sara Palin, then they attacked Michelle B achmann, did a number on Herman Cain and Rick P erry and now are after Newt Gingrich. They feel any of them are a threat to Obama and even after this White House group has destroyed our country trying to make us a socialist country. The leftwing loons are for freebies to everyone at the cost of those of us who work for what we have. Ho w can anyone be so stupid to want to take from one group and give to a non-working group. N ewt Gingrich is by far superior to the rest of the pack, and forget the baggage bit as lots of Democrats had tons of baggage Clinton, Edwards, etc. In a debate Newt would destroy Obama with his little tele prompter. I hope the American people can see thru this regime who is ruining our country. S pain did the same thing and went socialist, and after seven years as it was ruing their country, they threw all those socialist out and went back to capitalism, which r ewards people who work for a living instead of waiting for their hand outs. Ba r nie Frank destroyed Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and got rich doing it. Good riddance to that nasty loser. The Republicans need to get together and get behind one candidate or we are handing this election to Obama. Tr ump was on television recently, and he is a very smart Got something to say?

to do with the deficit.Get control of your dogsIn the first place, you should never have anyone or anything on your lap, while driving. Dogs belong at home or in the back seat, if at all, in a vehicle. Y ou see folks with dogs in the back of a pickup. That's just as bad. If you stop quick, out they go. If y ou really cared about y our pets like members of the family, you would never consider putting them in so much danger, as y ou do when you place them on your lap. I have a wonderful son (dog) that loves to ride in the car. He is always in the back when we go for a drive. He may come up front at some point, but he is never on my side of the car. He also never looks out of the window. They are never down. It is something to think about next time you're out. Y ou could not make this garbage upWhen Mitt Romney was M assachusetts governor in 2003 and faced with a $3 billion state budget deficit, he didn't want to raise taxes since that would prevent him in the future from claiming he hadn't raised taxes. So he proposed new or increased fees, including a $10 licensing fee on the blind so a sight-impaired person could receive a state certificate of blindness. As Romney showed when governor, the "no new taxes" mantra at the federal level, that he and his fellow right-wing candidates are so fond of (remember "R ead my lips. No new taxes," Bush, who then immediately proceeded to r aise taxes on everyone making under $100,000), has a ripple effect. This results in the progressive ability-to-pay income taxes being r eplaced with regressive taxes and fees at the state level, including his proposed levy for being blind. R omney and company's user-fee-as-flat-tax" strategy ended up approving hundreds of millions in higher fees and fines, making it more expensive to use an ice skating rink, register a boat, take the bar exam, get a duplicate driver's license, file a court case, install underground storage tanks, sell cigar ettes or alcohol, comply with air quality rules or transport hazardous waste. A survey by the National C onference of State Legislatures found that Romney, during his first year as governor alone, raised "fees" and fines by $501 million. This is what they are trying to sell us. "If you make a working wage, minimum wage or less, then why should you get a lower income tax rate anyway? Y ou don't make enough for it to matter. Let the "working class" payroll tax that President Obama put into place just go away, so we can "balance the budget." Yo u' ll also pay more for food, transportation, medical care and keeping your lights on, but who cares? The billionaires have to keep their tax handouts so they can create jobs, and somebody has to pay for that. And it sure can't be us. We need that money, to ... uh .... Go ahead, Mitt and Newt and whoever the next artificially anointed front-runner might be, tell us how many jobs you've "created" aside from appointing y our friends and relatives to positions to shuffle papers and answer phones and deny everything.Holy rollers, worry about yourself insteadI am tired of hearing about "God" and this holy r ollers' consistent Bible talk. It is not your place to judge. You should worry about what you believe and worry about making it to your little made up place in the sky rather than worr ying about who people choose to love and marry. Yo u' re r ight about one thing, it isn't up to you; and it sure is heck isn't hurting y ou. S ame-sex marriage is something that some people choose, and guess what? It's their business. I don't believe in all this "G od" ranting you spew, but I'm not going to shake my head and say you have no right to believe what yo u believe. Therefore, you have no r ight to tell someone not to love who they love. You don't have to agree, and no one is asking your permission. The only person they have to answer to is ... no one. Get over it. Y ou and your "Christian heart" can feel what you feel, think what you may and disagree with what you feel is wrong, but guess what? You nor your "God" is going to change what has now become legal in some states, with more to come. Y ou just keep praying, going to church or whatever it is you do, and let the ones to love a person, no matter the sex, do exactly that ... love. P ut your energy into something worth changing, like the sex offenders, or the murderers, rapists, abusers and all of the people who are actually doing something wrong. B ecause the people who choose to love are doing nothing wrong, even if they choose to love the same sex. I live my life by doing things that make me happy, things that give me pleasure; and if they're things that are not harmful or illegal, then well, what the heck is it any of your's or anyone else's business? O h, that's right, it's not. Y our crossword puzzleOne of our greatest joys each week was opening the H ometown News and finding the weekly crossword, designed by Linda and Charles Preston.

Go do somethingI just read about this gal who was a paralegal and unemployed. What a bunch of whining and blaming somebody else. God knows Obama walked into a terrible situation. No w if she owns her own home, there are a lot of things she can do. S he can baby sit. She can walk dogs or take them into her home. She can also r ent a room in her home. There are so many people who need their windows washed. Get out there and move. Yo u' ll find something to do. B ut if you don't want to find something to do, it is easier to sit and complain about it in the paper. So I'd say get out there and clean houses. Go be a maid. Go visit the hospital. B ut don't whine.Thanks for the Police Report'I am calling you to thank y ou for printing the "Police R eport." It provides a real community service for everyone, and it really makes us aware of what is going on in our community, and by whom. So we love your paper. K eep it up. Thank you very much.Another crossword puzzle rantI just wanted to say that I have been receiving your paper for several years now, and I really look forward to the "Rants" column and the crossword. B ut I am really disappointed that you have changed your crossword puzzle, and the new one is not as long, and it certainly isn't as challenging. Is there any chance you could go back to whoever was writing the one from the past?Response to Little guy'Ye s, I complained about the price of oil because J.P. Mo r gan has more oil than the oil companies. If y ou would read all the papers, you would find out. When I say something, I go by facts, not fiction. If y ou don't like the price of iPad 2, tough on you. You don't have to buy it. B ut we have to buy gas and stuff to keep moving, so why don't you wake up?Crossword puzzle r aveAll I just want to say is thank you for making the crossword puzzles larger.An angel at the grocery storeI want to write this in r egard of that lady and the angel who went to her. I had the same experience last year about this time. I was at the grocery store shopping, and when I came to the register, my bank card would not work. I was getting ready to leave, leaving my groceries there, when a lady stepped out of the line, came to the r egister and slid her card in for me. Like you, I never had a chance to ask for her name. I thanked her, and she said, That's OK. That's what the Lord put us in this world is to help each other." That's why I think I met my angel, as well as you did. It might have not been the same one. Like I said, I never got her name, and I wish I did. If she reads this, I would appreciate it if she would get in touch with me so I can, at least, send her a card every year. I hope you will print this. memorial for Melbourne B each resident Jessica Burre ll, 26, who died July 23, as a result of a shooting that occurred at a home on O cean View Lane in Indialantic. Se veral weeks after her death, police charged Jeffrey Richard Brown of Indialantic with second-degree murder in the case. 3.Cocoa Beach votes on downtown mixed-use issue C ocoa Beach residents headed to the polls in October to decide on the issue of mixed use, or mixing residential and retail uses, in an attempt to revitalize the downtown area. Mo re than 61 percent of the votes were in favor of adopting mixed use, according to the Brevard County S upervisor of Elections' w ebsite. 2.Brevard remembers 9-11 Ce r emonies and remembrances were held throughout the Space Coast last fall to remember the victims of 9-11 on the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks in New York and W ashington.

Expires 1/6/12 Out & about Legendary singer Johnny M athis credits his father with his career. The elder M athis, who loved music, brought a piano into the house and sang for all seven of his children. "I was the only one that showed up when he sat down at the piano, "Mr. M athis said. "My brothers and sisters ran. I was the only one to hand around." I ndeed, Mr. Mathis has hung around, in a career that spans nearly six decades. He comes to the K ing Center on Jan. 7, and he spoke by phone from his home in California about music, fortune and Mr. Mathis' most important influence was his father. "D ad was a wonderful man," he said. "He was my best friend. He and my mom raised seven kids on domestic wages. I recognized early on how giving they were." The elder Mathis introduced his son to C onnie Cox, a classically trained singer. The son did chores to pay for his lessons. "M y dad reminded me that I was fortunate to study with a voice teacher," he said. "I was a lucky guy to get these lessons. It didn't dawn on me until later on that something could come from the lessons. I loved to learn." Mr. Mathis grew up in S an Francisco and enrolled in San Francisco S tate, with majors in physical education and English. He planned to become a teacher. At 19, he had an opportunity to go to the Olympic Trials in Be r keley, Calif., to select members of the Olympic team for 1956. "I had the opportunity to try out as a highjumper," he said. "The y ear before, I had sung for a man at Columbia R ecords. He promised to get back to me and he did, the same week as the trials. He called me and said he'd like me to come to New York and make my first recording." Learning which songs worked for his style was a process of discovery. "I made a lot of mistakes early on," he said. "S ome suited my voice and some didn't. Along the way, I met people who we re intuitive. Before you know it, you have an idea of what you do best. "O ne of the things that happened was that I went to Brazil at an early age. I got really fascinated with Br azilian music like the samba and the Bossa nova. To this day, it's a part of what I sing on stage." A modest man, Mr. M athis credits other musicians and even acoustics for his success. "I think sometimes you get a perfect storm," he said. "My early records we re made in an old church in New York. They still sound good today. "M usicians were willing to help me. They offered me music and I took it. I had no idea what I wanted to sing and how I wanted to sing it. "I met (songwriter) R obert Allen on a street corner in New York. He offered me a song. I had no idea who he was. He came through, first with I t' s not For Me to Say' and then Chances Are.' There's so much good fortune and downright luck. I've been very lucky." One of Mr. Mathis' big breaks came in 1957, when he appeared on the "Ed S ullivan Show." It changed his life.

Sister Clara Kelly, clinic medical director, appointed to SCVIM Board of Directors For Hometown News S ister Clara Kelly, a member of the Religious Order of the Sisters of Mercy and advanced registered nurse practitioner, has been appointed to the board of directors of Space Coast Volunteers in Medicine. Sister Clara is currently medical director of the free community clinic located in Palm Bay. B oard president Paul Ringenberger said, "Sister Clara brings skill, experience and compassion to our board. While we certainly appreciate her vast medical knowledge and ability to run a clinic, it is her commitment to helping those in need that will inspire and drive our board." Servin g as medical director for a clinic providing free medical, dental and chiropractic care seems to be in harmony with her commitment to her order. S isters of Mercy are women who commit their lives to God, deepening their relationship with God and serving God's people, especially those who are sick, poor and uneducated. In the spirit of the Gospel, their mission is to help people to overcome the obstacles that keep them from living full and dignified lives. "S ister Clara is the heart and soul of our clinic," Mr. Ringenberger said. "We wanted this same dedication on our board because we believe it will keep us focused on our mission of providing health care to the uninsured of Brevard County. The Board has been blessed to have someone like Sister Clara, with her passion and determination, joining our team. She'll make a strong board an even stronger and more determined group." U nder Sister Clara's leadership, the clinic now has 76 volunteer health providers volunteering their time to help those in need of health ca re. S tated Sister Clara, "This program is about helping those in need who lack health insurance, and I've seen the results of our work. We improved people's health and by so doing have made their lives more livable. And though we are only a small safety net for the uninsured, we know this program is fulfilling its mission and delivering results. While I'm on the board, I'll make sure we keep our focus on serving the less fortunate with dignity and r espect for every patient that comes through our doors."

They seem to fly by. No matter how early I start writing to get in all I want for the holidays I never start early enough. I guess I have to jump in right after Labor Day. Who could have imagined 2012? When I was a teenager I believed by now we would be flying around in space ships and here we are still driving in cars. It's N ew Years Eve, too late for appropriate recipes. The lectures on eating right, getting in shape, etc., etc. will have to wait, I'm going to devote this column and the next to delectable desserts you will be making for special occasions and then get back on track to all the other stuff. R eal New York cheesecake is only the beginning. S ome recipes require candied fruits; buy them now, they are never available during the year. H appy New Year! N N E E W Y W Y O O R R K K C C H H E E E E S S E E C C AKE AKE This cheesecake will be by far the best you've ever tasted. It is the true, heavy, r ich, New York cheesecake that dreams are made of. M any recipes were tried until I finally learned that the secret to a spectacular cheesecake is not only in the ingredients but in the method of baking. This makes a large cake, you will need a 9or 10-inch spring form pan. Graham cracker crust Pr epare graham cracker crust according to the directions on the box, adding 1/4 cup finely chopped almonds if you like. Press into bottom of spring form pan and bake at 375-degree for 10 minutes. Let cool. While crust is baking, prepare filling. 2-1/2 pounds cream cheese (five 8-ounce packages), softened 3 tablespoons flour 1 teaspoon each of grated lemon and orange rind 1/4-teaspoon vanilla extract 1-3/4 cups sugar 5 large eggs 2 egg yolks 1/4-cup heavy cream C ombine first 4 ingredients, beat with an electric mixer at second speed. Add sugar gradually. Add eggs and egg yolks one at a time, beating lightly after each addition. (If the speed is too high when adding the eggs, too much air gets into the batter and produces a cake of inferior consistency). Stir in cream. P our into prepared pan. B ake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes. (During baking place a pan of water on the bottom rack to prevent cake from cracking). R educe heat to 300 degrees; continue baking 1 to 1-1/2 hours until almost set in center. Tu rn ov en off and leave cake in for 1 hour longer. O pen oven door and leave cake in 10 minutes longer. Let cool, chill, remove sides of pan and top with any glaze or fruit of your choice or serve plain with a side or two of different fruit toppings. IT IT ALIAN C ALIAN C A A S S S S A A T T A A C C AKE (N AKE (N I I B) B) This recipe is from my cousin Ermalina. The cake is purchased from the supermarket bakery or a bakery store. It is a high cake. 1 sponge cake 1 container (2 pounds) r icotta cheese 1 cup confectioner's sugar 3 squares semi-sweet chocolate, chopped fine 5 tablespoons chopped pistachio nuts 1 cup candied fruit 3/4-tablespoon orange liquor 1/3-cup raspberry jam B eat ricotta in a large bowl until smooth. Add sugar, chocolate, nuts and candied fruit (save best pieces to decorate top of cake). C ut cake into 3 or 4 thin layers. Moisten top of each layer with liquor then spread a little jam over top and top with some ricotta mixture. Continue stacking layers, leaving top of cake plain. Chill until set, (at least 2 hours). Cover top with leftover ricotta mixture or dust with confectioner's sugar. D ecorated with reserved fruit.

Now with healthy butter substitutes such as S mart Balance you can enjoy this treat without the saturated fat. 4 tablespoons (1/4-cup) butter or Smart Balance 4 tablespoons (1/4-cup) light brown sugar, firmly packed 1/4-teaspoon cinnamon 1/4-cup banana liqueur* 2 bananas peeled and cut in half crosswise and then lengthwise 1/2-cup slivered almonds (optional) M elt butter in skillet, add brown sugar and cook stirring constantly until sugar melts and color turns a light brown. If you choose to add the almonds, toast them in the butter-sugar mixture until they are golden. A dd the cinnamon and liqueur and cook for about 2 minutes. Add the bananas, basting and warming them in the syrup, turning once. C ool slightly and serve ov er vanilla ice cream. If alcohol is not an option, substitute 1/2 tsp. v anilla. This was originally a flambŽ and the alcohol was added at the end and flamed. I don't do flames too well so I skip that step.

V ickie Mathis lost 100 pounds in one year and didn' t hate every minute of it. No w, as a fitness instructor, the 42-year-old Port St. J ohn resident is showing other plus-sized individuals that healthy bodies can enjoyably be achieved through the popular Latininspired dance program called Zumba. Ms. Mathis walked into her first Zumba class at C ome On Get Happy studio last December, after a friend convinced her to give it a try. S he weighed more than 400 pounds and "could hardly move," she said. "I could see her move her hips, but nothing else," said H ali Panzak, who owns the studio in Cocoa Village and was teaching at Ms. Mathis' first class. "I never thought I'd see her again." Though Ms. Mathis said she felt out of place as one of only two plus-sized people in the room, she felt more energized after one class than she had in a long time. S he returned, and before long, she was hooked. After three months, Ms. M athis shed 50 pounds and started noticing results, like better eating habits, a stabilized blood pressure, and skyrocketing confidence and energy, she said. "I r emember when I looked down and was able to see my feet," Ms. Mathis said. "That's something that still gives me goose bumps." W ith Ms. Panzak's help, Ms. Mathis trained to become a Zumba instructor so she could reach out to plus-sized individuals, who often feel uncomfortable working out. They are not going to walk into the gym past body builders and feel good about it," Ms. Panzak said. "But they can walk into Vickie's class and know that people just like them are there to achieve the same thing, and they can connect with Vickie because she's been on the journey." Ms. Mathis' Zumba PLUS classes kicked off in the beginning of December and have grown in popularity, with 18 students at her first one. S he customized routines with moves that plus-sized individuals can perform. W ith the combination of fun moves and an eclectic mix of high-energy music, it is easy to break a sweat in Ms. M athis' class without realizing it is a workout. U ltimately, she hopes to create a support group for plus-sized individuals to supplement the class, she said. "I used to have very little confidence," Ms. Mathis said. "I didn't want people staring at me. Now, when people stare, I like it because even if this is the first time yo u' ve seen me, the next time you see me, you're going to see something different." C ome On Get Happy is located at 217 King St. in C ocoa Village.

I hope that all of you found 2011 to be a better y ear than 2010. I also wish that 2012 brings you health and happiness. As I look back on 2011, I r emember a year filled with highs and lows in our sport. I present to you my top seven stories in golf for 2011: No 7: Can we please get a muzzle for caddies? B etween Steve Williams and Jo LaCava, there were more stories written about caddies than half the players on tour. The very public split of W illiams and Tiger Woods became a hot story this summer. Williams joined with Adam Scott, and the duo quickly won. Tiger's struggles continued, and the media coverage became a little National Enquirer-like. No 6: In this game, we always talk about bouncing back. No one had a bigger bounce-back in 2011 than Rory McIlroy. After a Masters debacle that made Greg Norman wince, McIlroy thrashed the field and Congressional in the next major. Mc Il ro y won by eight and broke the scoring record by four shots. No 5: There is a young woman for the world to take note of. Her name is Lexi Thompson. At 16, she put on a clinic at the N avistar Classic and became the youngest LPGA winner ever. S he went on to add a win at the Dubai Ladies M asters to become the second-youngest winner on the ladies European tour and will play as a member of the LPGA Tour in 2012. No. 4: If you were a betting person and took D arren Clarke to win the O pen Championship, you may have made enough to r etire. Clarke was a very long 200-1 shot with bookmakers to hoist the Claret Jug. In fact, he was 28-1 to be low Irishman and there were only four in the field! F or those of us who like to take life and golf a little less seriously than most, Clarke's win was fantastic. I know I had a few cigars and a stout or two in celebration. No 3: There appears to be a new dominant world No 1, and her name is Yani T seng. She rolled through the 2011 ladies' schedule, picking up a dozen wins, including a pair of major titles. T seng led in nearly every statistical category and finished atop the money list. In her homeland of T aiwan, her appearance led to record attendance. No. 2: If any group needed to get the proverbial monkey off its back, it was the European Solheim C up Team. F or the first time in eight y ears, Europe hosted the trophy. Doing so with a boisterous home crowd in front of Killeen Castle made it all the more special. On my list, the event was the best one of the year. S unday's last 60 minutes or so provided golf fans with the ultimate cliffhanger. M atches went back and forth with the highlight being Suzann Pettersen finishing with three straight birdies to defeat M ichelle Wie to help secure the Cup. No. 1: On May 7, our sport lost an icon. At the y oung age of 54, Seve B allesteros passed away. Se ve was to the European tour what Arnold P almer was to the U.S. tour so many years ago. Y ou will be hard-pressed to find anyone who loved this game more than Seve. H is artistry and genius we re untouched by any of his peers. He showed us that while you can't hit every shot perfectly, you shouldn't give up, and if y ou use your imagination, y ou can find a way to post a great score. M ost of all, Seve was one of the most genuine of gentlemen I have ever met. O ur sport was blessed to have him, and something less with his loss.

to be able to monetarily show my appreciation to my parents," he said. "I helped them get a house and get out of the little bitty one. We weren't poor, but we didn't have any money. The first and only thing I was concerned about with money was the chance to show my folks what I thought of them. "M om became president of my fan club. We r eceived letters from all ov er the world. She and D ad answered each one in longhand." While fans of Mr. Mathis are familiar with his music, they may never have seen a live show. The singer discussed what the audience can expect. The first thing I do is come on stage with no fanfare and sing a few songs they're familiar with," he said. "I sneak in a few songs I like and introduce them. I sing for half an hour and then I usually have someone I like come on and lighten up the evening with a few jokes." Of late, that comedian has been Gary Mule Deer, whom Mr. Mathis met at a golf tournament. After an intermission, he returns to the stage. "I sing the music I think I sing the best, and a lot of the things my musicians give me. They give me a lot of ideas. They have to listen to me every night and they know what I do best. "I try to sing songs that are pleasing and pleasant. I don't worry about r azzle-dazzling the audience." Chances are, you'll be pleased. J ohnny Mathis appears at the King Center,3865 N. W ickham Road,Melbourne,on Jan.7 at 8 p.m. T ickets are $49.50-$95.

R egistration is open for the engineering design and r acing contest set to culminate in a two-day event in H untsville, Ala., April 13-14.

The race is organized annually by NASA's Marshall S pace Flight Center and held at the U.S. Space & R ocket Center, both in H untsville. S ince 1994, NASA has challenged student teams to build and race human-powered rovers of their own design. These fast, lightw eight moonbuggies address many of the same engineering challenges ov ercome by Apollo-era lunar rover developers at M arshall in the late 1960s. A pollo 15 astronauts D avid Scott and James Irwin drove the first rover on the moon's surface on July 31, 1971. Two more rovers followed during the Apollo 16 and 17 missions in 1972, expanding astronauts' reach surface and permitting greater focus on scientific exploration.

In Oc tober 2004, as he completed paperwork along U.S. 1, a woman suddenly pulled her van beside his patrol car. Sh e was pregnant and experiencing labor pains. When I got up to the v an initially, I though she was having labor pains and needed guidance to the hospital, Sgt. Miller re called. But when I looked in the window, it was pretty clear she was not going to make it to the hospital. Sgt. Miller delivered the pregnant womans baby by the road, cutting the newborns umbilical cord, wrapping the baby in spare clothing, and awaiting an ambulance. On Monday, Sgt. Miller and the boy he brought into the world, 7-year-old Cor ey Savage of Palm Bay, we re reunited once again.

pounds of cocaine in her breast and buttock implants. The woman, who was not identified, hoped to sneak by police with help from her plunging neckline and tight clothes. I nstead, she attracted the attention of airport security, according to a D aily Mail story. When she couldnt explain her trip to South America, two female security officers searched her and found the fake implants, which had cocaine crystals molded into them, the newspaper r eported. They stopped her for questioning because she was so alluring and her story about why she was in South America just fell apart, Antonio Di Greco, police chief at Fiumicino airport, said. After being pulled aside, Di Greco said the model became aggressive with officers. S he was being held at the Rome airport on charges of international drug trafficking. From wenatcheeworld.com: Man says he drove 225 miles with dead wife A uthorities say a Br itish Columbia man drove about 225 miles after his 75-year-old wife died in the car next to him, uncertain whether he could cross the Canadian border with her. T onasket Police Chief R obert Burks says the 71y ear-old man didnt know what to do, so he kept driving. The man was v acationing in Oregon when his wife began suffering a medical condition. They were trying to get home to Oliver, B.C., but she died near Pasco, Wash. The Wenatchee World r eports the man on S unday called the vehicle emergency system, OnStar, which put him in touch with dispatchers in O kanogan County. A dispatcher convinced him to stop at the Tonasket police station, about 20 miles south of Canada. Burks says the woman was taken to North Valley H ospital and pronounced dead. He says police determined her death wasnt suspicious. From nydailynews.com: U tah man crashes $380,000 Lamborghini just 6 hours after winning car in contest A contest winner saw his good fortune come to a screeching halt on S unday when he crashed a brand new $380,000 Lamborghini he won in a local convenience store contest six hours after he got the keys. On his first night as a Lambo owner, David Dopp took his new wheels out for a spin on the outskirts of his hometown of Santaquin, Utah. He told KSL-TV that he ran into trouble when he took a curve too fast, hit a patch of ice or gravel, crashed through a fence post and finally landed in a field. Luckily, besides his pride and prize, Dopp wasnt injured. M y heart pretty much fell out, Dopps wife, Annette Dopp told KSL. They said they were OK. Then came, you know, that feeling when your heart drops and youre like, Oh, my gosh. What do we do now? The Italian sports car, which is insured, is currently awaiting repairs to its front end, wheel and passenger side, the Associated Press reported. B ut even when its fixed, Dopp said he doesnt plan on going on too many more joyrides. He said hes giving up the keys and selling the car, which is valued at around $380,000, to pay off some bills and buy his wife another car, the Salt Lake Tr ibune reported. Everything is going to be okay and well move on from here, he told ABC 4. Fr om sltrib.com: P olice:Thieves pocketdial 911,leading to arrest M adison,Wis. community resource officer. Officer Koeberl said each youngster was given a $50 shopping spree, and the department collected an extra $100 because kids tend to go over a little bit, he said. I t s actually a really good experience for the officers, too, because they volunteer their time and enjoy it, Officer Koebarl said. Whatever perception people have of police officers, we want it to be a positive perception at an early age, Officer Koeberl said. Officer Koeberl said the highlight of the kids shopping spree was the r eunion of Sgt. Miller and Corey. Sgt. Miller delivered the child on the side of the r oad with a pocket knife, Officer Koeberl said. The mom was trying to get to the hospital, but she went into labor. I t was one of those situations where there r eally was not an option because the baby wasnt waiting. Sgt. Miller called Fi re Rescue right away, but the baby wasnt waiting for Fire Rescue, Officer Koeberl said. F or Sgt. Miller, bringing a child into the world re mains a memorable and fulfilling experience. Sgt. Miller recounted the fateful night. I was by the side of the r oad near the Nissan dealership, doing paperwork, and she pulled up in a van, Sgt. Miller recalled S he was standing up and breathing hard and was kind of out of it. I got her off her feet, and I could see it was going to be a good birth, head first with no complications. We went ahead with the full birth of the child. He said, I located a hair barrette to use as a clamp to cut the umbilical cord. Sgt. Miller said delivering a child made up for the tragedies police sometimes encounter. W e face peoples pain and despair year after y ear, and it can take a toll on you, Sgt. Miller said. When you have the opportunity to bring life into the world, there is no better joy. Sgt. Miller said the M elbourne police officers enjoy mentoring children, who are the same age as his own children. W e take kids on field trips throughout the state, he said. Weve seen a lot of these kids grow up in the neighborhood. They know me by first name now. Ex plaining the goal of S hop With A Cop, Sgt. M iller said: Wed rather they grow up and be doctors and join the Peace C orps and make the world a better place. I t s a humanitarian effort to show we care about our community, and the kids in our community. Its important to uphold the image that people expect from us on a daily basis, Sgt. Miller said.

Photo courtesy of The Kentucky HeadhuntersThe Kentucky Headhunters, which won a variety of Country Music Association Awards, Academy of Country Music Awards and Grammy Awards, will perform at Lous Blues in Indialantic Thursday, Jan. 12.members come and go throughout the years, but today, the Kentucky Headhunters is comprised of the Y oung brothers, as well as their cousin, Greg Martin, who plays lead guitar, and Doug Phelps, bass guitarist and lead vocalist. While they still rehearse and write music in that old house, the band has come a long way since its days of playing on the farm. Theyve traveled the world and made a serious name for themselves, earning a slew of Country Music Association Awards, A cademy of Country Music A wards, and even a few Grammy Awards in the early 1990s. The band is best known for its hits Oh, Lonesome Me , Rock & Roll Angel, D umas Walker and Walk S oftly on this Heart of M ine. The group, whose members grew up listening to the likes of Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones, said they came into the country music genre almost by accident. P eople describe us as a S outhern rock and blues band, with some country flavor, Mr. Young said. I think its our rural sensibilities that give our band that little touch of country. The Headhunters released its 12th album Oct. 18, called Dixie Lullabies, which the guys actually r ecorded entirely in the old farmhouse in Edmonton, Ky. I t was something we always wanted to do, Mr. Y oung said. Our other albums have all been r ecorded in major studios, but we really wanted an opportunity to open our hearts a little more and write directly from them. Its not something youd expect from a bunch of old salty dog southern rockers. The albums first single, Gr eat Acoustics, which will be released Jan. 2, can be described as a very modern-age approach on love, Mr. Young said. The whole album reads like a book, he said. Were r eally excited about it. The Kentucky Headhunters will be playing a few songs from their new album, as well as some of their most popular hits Thursday, Jan. 12 at Lous B lues in Indialantic. Louie Andrus, owner of Lous Blues, said hes already r eceived a great response from the community about the bands performance. T heyre a real personable group of guys and have been around for so long and have so many hits, we are just honored to have someone of their caliber on our stage, Mr. Andrus said. Mr. Young said he and his band mates are equally excited to kick off their 2012 tour in the beautiful Florida sunshine. W e re ready to come over to Florida and play for our friends there in Brevard C ounty, Mr. Young said. The room has a cool vibe, and I think itll be a jam-up time. The Kentucky Headhunters will play Thursday,Jan.12 at 8 p.m.at Lous Blues,3191 N.Highway A1A,Indialantic.

Brevard Countys Y ear in ReviewThere was hardly a dull moment in 2011 for Space C oast residents. Fr om tragedy and mayhem to new beginnings and stories of success, there is much to look back on this year. He re s a glimpse at some of the headline-grabbing events that helped shape 2011. 10.KSC offers tours of the Vehicle Assembly B uilding The Kennedy Space C enter Visitor Complex opened the doors to its longstanding Vehicle Assembly Building on Nov. 1, allowing guests to tour the building originally used for assembly of the S aturn V rocket for the A pollo program. This was the first time in more than 30 years that the largest single-story building in the world was opened to the general public. 9.Palm Bay fire fee defeated Ending a contentious City Council battle, city leaders in Palm Bay voted 5-0 earlier this month to terminate the proposed fire fee, which would have billed residents $192 to $292 annually to fund the citys fire department. The battle to quash the fee was led by Palm Bay May or John Mazziotti. 8.Palm Bay Little Leaguers show their skills The Palm Bay East Little League All-Stars baseball team made a return trip to the Senior Little League W orld Series in Bangor, M aine, on Aug. 21. The team, which previously qualified for the W orld Series in 2010, is the only team from Brevard C ounty to ever qualify for the World Series. 7.Beachside residents help save post office from closure After learning that their longstanding post office was on a long list of potential closures, a group of concerned residents in M elbourne Beach initiated a letter-writing campaign and gained more than 1,000 signatures on a petition to save the historic branch. Se veral weeks later, they we re informed the Melbourne Beach Post Office was no longer on the chopping block. 6.Melbourne cop sues city Fir ed Melbourne police officer Frank Carter filed suit against the city of Melbourne May 18 for damages and reinstatement after the State Attorneys Office dropped all criminal charges against him. Mr. Carter was arrested and charged with felony crimes. As president of the M elbourne Police Union, Mr. Carter frequently opposed former Chief Donald Carey. 5.Community mourns loss of Melbourne Beach mayor F ollowing a battle with cancer, Melbourne Beach May or Rita Karpie died J uly 6 at a local hospice center.

P eople need to listen to what Trump says and take him seriously. I am not thrilled with Romney, but anyone would be better than what we have.Response to Welfare cards for liquor?I cant believe what I read under the Welfare cards for liquor? commentary. The writer claims to see all welfare cards being used for liquor and gaming casinos and wonders why it seems so difficult for the government to take these cards and cancel them so they cant be used again. I read at the beginning of the Rants & Raves section, that statements would be checked for accuracy, and that made me wonder why this commentary was printed in the first place. I find no value in it. Its not thought-provoking. Its not inspiring in any way, and its not humorous in a comical or satirical way. It s actually boring, gossipish and self-satisfying to the reader who already knows that welfare cards, as they are erroneously called by the writer, are nothing but a free credit card for boozing; gambling and assorted other low-life activities. The writer can probably spout out another blurb about seeing those cards again all the time being used to buy cigarettes and porno books and movies. I think if someone actually witnesses such abuse of food stamps (the actual term not welfare card) and as frequently as this was supposedly seen by the writer, that it would have been reported to a local agency or local town hall officials, not written up as a commentary to fuel the fire of narrow minds that hold negative views on such give-away programs in the first place. W ithout checking my facts, I will state that there are more people duly receiving food stamp assistance without any additional financial assistance. It is a myth that people who receive food stamps are on welfare. They are not. There are far more people applying for and receiving food stamps now than ever before. Many are working families with paychecks that dont cover bills anymore, and many are servicemen and servicewomen who cant make it financially when they return to a dismal economic scene. F ood stamps and families that receive them dont need any added negative publicity, even on Page 6 of a folksy, hometown free paper. They will go under and around the wallI would like to make a comment on the Mexican wall they are proposing building. C ould you please look up in history about the building of the Berlin Wall in Germany and find out how many people were killed trying to get over, under or through it? There were literally thousands of people trying to get back to family who have come over the wall. I think is was somewhere in 1967 that the wall was knocked down. P eople from all over the world went over there and knocked it down with small hammers, took little bits and pieces. It will not work if literally thousands of people have been killed trying to get through that wall, and I can see the same thing happening with the Mexican border. It s a waste of money because they will dig tunnels, they will go around it and they will find other ways of coming around it. P lease look it up at www.BerlinWall.com. Thank you.Those women are sinnersThank you, H ometown News, for giving me the opportunity to report my rant. It starts with the words: Are not those women that r eported their sexual relationships with Herman Cain sinners themselves? I think so. Is there a presidential candidate who is without sin? If not, a sinner will be our next president. This sinner still likes Herman Cain.If you dont like Christmas, go to EuropeI am so tired about all this (pc?) about Christmastime. Let us have some peace for a break. Leave us alone. Where do you people come from? Who died and left y ou boss? All of a sudden now, especially in Boca Raton, I am so disappointed in them for letting them have their way. That is the worst thing you can do. We need to fight, and we need to stand up to people and put a stop to this. If you dont like it people, you dont like Christmas, then go to Europe. This is America. We were here first, so we had this like this for 200 years. Get off of it. Get a life and stop bothering people about Christmas. We need Christmas more than ever right now.In the Year 2020It is now 2020, Obama still Occupies the Oval Office, living in a tent on the West Lawn, having anointed himself Dear Leader of the 57 States. W ith the Supreme Court deciding that the government could make you do anything it wanted to, Obamacare began in 2014, collapsing the U.S. economy. U nemployment is at 25 percent, and the dollar is no longer the worlds reserve currency. F ood stamps, emblazed with Obamas portrait, are now the common currency, although most other countries wont accept them. The New York Times recently praised Michelle Obama for receiving a Noble Prize for her discovery that proper diet and exercise were the cure for obesity. The environmentalists and the EPA have successfully shut down all oil production in the country. The only oil that is available is used to lubricate bicycle chains. Government Motors Chevy Volt, the electric car that gets 40 miles on battery and the remaining 320 miles on gasoline, is no longer able to transport commuters. Now sitting idle, they spontaneously combust, consuming their surroundings in a fiery blaze. While declaring this to be a re-Volt-ing development, M otor Trend magazine still voted the Chevy Volt the H ottest Car of the Year. N ot realizing that the only difference between the Volt and a steam locomotive is that the Volt burns coal somewhere else, environmentalists considerate it to be their crowning achievement. C alifornia, New Mexico and Arizona have returned to M exico without a shot being fired. M ost Americans had long since fled, and it is now called Terra del Norte, where the drug industry is flourishing and drugs are being sold by undocumented pharmacists. The country awaits Dear Leaders return from his w eekly vacation to hear his electrifying oratory on this development. S ocial Security went bankrupt in 2017, as predicted, with Medicare going bankrupt a few years earlier. B eing his magnanimous self, Dear Leader decreed extra rations of chicken noodle soup for seniors to cure whatever ails them. Seniors, who can still remember that far back, sit numbly in their rocking chairs talking about something called freedom, but no reference to this idea can be found in any school text books. The question is will the Baby Boom generation be the generation that allows freedom to become extinct?Crossword puzzle changedH i. My only reason for calling is to say that Im kind of disappointed in the difference in the crossword puzzle. It s funny how things seem to change when you like them the way they are. I liked the crossword puzzles you used to have, but in the last couple of issues you have had puzzles that are not as good, as far as Im concerned. Thats all. I just wanted to mention that.P ayback the Social Security trillions of dollarsThe best way to repair the Social Security and Medicare is for the government to pay back the $2.2 trillion they have borrowed over the years, interest-free, from Social S ecurity, which is a loan from the American people without their permission or knowledge. And now the Republicans want to welsh on the deal. Thats why they wanted to privatize Social Security so they can kill off the agency they owe $2 trillion to. Thats $2 trillion they can spread around in tax cuts, graft, corr uption and everything else, on top of the insider trading. So why doesnt the government just pay back the $2 trillion they borrowed from the American people out of the Social Security fund over the years and forget about all the discussion because Social Security has nothing Y ears end review of Rants and RavesI am an avid reader of your Rants & Raves section of the H ometown News. I have put together a list of topics Brevardians have most written about in 2011 in the Rants and Raves sections, as I remember them. He re are the topics (in no particular order): ObamaCare, Social Security and Medicare, Waste Management, larger trash cans and recycling, dogs on the beach and service dogs, the political left vs. the political right, service and servers, thrift stores, Palm Bay city management, Melbournes Daily Bread, the high-speed rail, illegal aliens, Brevard drivers, red light cameras, oil and gas prices, Americas economic problems, speaking English, casinos in Brevard, drug testing, Obamas birth certificates, yard sale signs, bike riding on the streets, Osama B in Laden, the Postal Service, same-sex marriages, the space program, Casey Anthony, Palm Bay fire fees and stormwater fees, term limits for Congress, outsourcing of jobs and replacement parts, taxes, the Tea Party, jobs, bullying and the Palm Bay firefighters. Y ou might have figured out that I live in Palm Bay, but county-wide, we all seem to be talking about the same things, at least in Rants & Raves. Thank you and your paper for keeping our minds alert. Ha ve a happy New Year. E ditors note:Thank you! Your thoughts are a nice addition to our end-of-the-year coverage.Attacking the RepublicansEv ery time a Republican starts to look like he might have a chance to be the nominee the lame stream, leftwing media goes on the attack. They ruined Sara Palin, then they attacked Michelle B achmann, did a number on Herman Cain and Rick P erry and now are after Newt Gingrich. They feel any of them are a threat to Obama and even after this White House group has destroyed our country trying to make us a socialist country. The leftwing loons are for freebies to everyone at the cost of those of us who work for what we have. How can anyone be so stupid to want to take from one group and give to a non-working group. N ewt Gingrich is by far superior to the rest of the pack, and forget the baggage bit as lots of Democrats had tons of baggage Clinton, Edwards, etc. In a debate Newt would destroy Obama with his little tele prompter. I hope the American people can see thru this regime who is ruining our country. S pain did the same thing and went socialist, and after seven years as it was ruing their country, they threw all those socialist out and went back to capitalism, which r ewards people who work for a living instead of waiting for their hand outs. Bar nie Frank destroyed Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and got rich doing it. Good riddance to that nasty loser. The Republicans need to get together and get behind one candidate or we are handing this election to Obama. Tr ump was on television recently, and he is a very smart Got something to say?

to do with the deficit.Get control of your dogsIn the first place, you should never have anyone or anything on your lap, while driving. Dogs belong at home or in the back seat, if at all, in a vehicle. Y ou see folks with dogs in the back of a pickup. Thats just as bad. If you stop quick, out they go. If you really cared about y our pets like members of the family, you would never consider putting them in so much danger, as y ou do when you place them on your lap. I have a wonderful son (dog) that loves to ride in the car. He is always in the back when we go for a drive. He may come up front at some point, but he is never on my side of the car. He also never looks out of the window. They are never down. It is something to think about next time youre out. Y ou could not make this garbage upWhen Mitt Romney was M assachusetts governor in 2003 and faced with a $3 billion state budget deficit, he didnt want to raise taxes since that would prevent him in the future from claiming he hadnt raised taxes. So he proposed new or increased fees, including a $10 licensing fee on the blind so a sight-impaired person could receive a state certificate of blindness. As Romney showed when governor, the no new taxes mantra at the federal level, that he and his fellow right-wing candidates are so fond of (remember Read my lips. No new taxes, Bush, who then immediately proceeded to r aise taxes on everyone making under $100,000), has a ripple effect. This results in the progressive ability-to-pay income taxes being r eplaced with regressive taxes and fees at the state level, including his proposed levy for being blind. R omney and companys user-fee-as-flat-tax strategy ended up approving hundreds of millions in higher fees and fines, making it more expensive to use an ice skating rink, register a boat, take the bar exam, get a duplicate drivers license, file a court case, install underground storage tanks, sell cigar ettes or alcohol, comply with air quality rules or transport hazardous waste. A survey by the National C onference of State Legislatures found that Romney, during his first year as governor alone, raised fees and fines by $501 million. This is what they are trying to sell us. If you make a working wage, minimum wage or less, then why should you get a lower income tax rate anyway? Y ou dont make enough for it to matter. Let the working class payroll tax that President Obama put into place just go away, so we can balance the budget. Yo u ll also pay more for food, transportation, medical care and keeping your lights on, but who cares? The billionaires have to keep their tax handouts so they can create jobs, and somebody has to pay for that. And it sure cant be us. We need that money, to ... uh .... Go ahead, Mitt and Newt and whoever the next artificially anointed front-runner might be, tell us how many jobs youve created aside from appointing y our friends and relatives to positions to shuffle papers and answer phones and deny everything.Holy rollers, worry about yourself insteadI am tired of hearing about God and this holy r ollers consistent Bible talk. It is not your place to judge. You should worry about what you believe and worry about making it to your little made up place in the sky rather than worr ying about who people choose to love and marry. Yo u re r ight about one thing, it isnt up to you; and it sure is heck isnt hurting y ou. S ame-sex marriage is something that some people choose, and guess what? Its their business. I dont believe in all this G od ranting you spew, but Im not going to shake my head and say you have no right to believe what yo u believe. Therefore, you have no r ight to tell someone not to love who they love. You dont have to agree, and no one is asking your permission. The only person they have to answer to is ... no one. Get over it. Y ou and your Christian heart can feel what you feel, think what you may and disagree with what you feel is wrong, but guess what? You nor your God is going to change what has now become legal in some states, with more to come. Y ou just keep praying, going to church or whatever it is you do, and let the ones to love a person, no matter the sex, do exactly that ... love. P ut your energy into something worth changing, like the sex offenders, or the murderers, rapists, abusers and all of the people who are actually doing something wrong. B ecause the people who choose to love are doing nothing wrong, even if they choose to love the same sex. I live my life by doing things that make me happy, things that give me pleasure; and if theyre things that are not harmful or illegal, then well, what the heck is it any of yours or anyone elses business?

ing, full of puns and plays on words, always clever. Now, its gone. Its hardly worth opening the paper any more. Its really dumbed down now.Quit whining. Go do somethingI just read about this gal who was a paralegal and unemployed. What a bunch of whining and blaming somebody else. God knows Obama walked into a terrible situation. Now if she owns her own home, there are a lot of things she can do. S he can baby sit. She can walk dogs or take them into her home. She can also r ent a room in her home. There are so many people who need their windows washed. Get out there and move. Yo u ll find something to do. B ut if you dont want to find something to do, it is easier to sit and complain about it in the paper. So Id say get out there and clean houses. Go be a maid. Go visit the hospital. B ut dont whine.Thanks for the Police ReportI am calling you to thank y ou for printing the Police R eport. It provides a real community service for everyone, and it really makes us aware of what is going on in our community, and by whom. So we love your paper. K eep it up.

I had the same experience last year about this time. I was at the grocery store shopping, and when I came to the register, my bank card would not work. I was getting ready to leave, leaving my groceries there, when a lady stepped out of the line, came to the r egister and slid her card in for me. Like you, I never had a chance to ask for her name. I thanked her, and she said, Thats OK. Thats what the Lord put us in this world is to help each other. Thats why I think I met my angel, as well as you did. It might have not been the same one. Like I said, I never got her name, and I wish I did. If she reads this, I would appreciate it if she would get in touch with me so I can, at least, send her a card every year. I hope you will print this. memorial for Melbourne B each resident Jessica Burre ll, 26, who died July 23, as a result of a shooting that occurred at a home on O cean View Lane in Indialantic.

While its difficult to believe that another year is almost behind us, residents of Brevard County and beyond are looking forward to what 2012 has in store. We at Hometown News scoured the Space Coast this holiday season, asking some of the communitys most influential people about their goals and resolutions for the new year. He re s what they had to say: My resolution is both personal and work-related: to be a responsive individual, always looking for optimism in all that I do; to take better care of myself; to be the best husband, father, manager and boss possible; and most importantly, to always be a positive role model. B ill Hoskovec, Melbourne Beach town manager I am going to get more involved in my community to make it a better place.

J im Tulley, mayor of T itusville It is one of my greatest goals to land a job that r equires me to travel and be a motivational speaker to those, from any and all walks of life, who may need inspir ation and motivation, which would include the incorporation of abundant life skills and at the same time, share an hour of Z umba with them. V ickie Mathis, Port St. J ohn resident and Zumba PLUS instructor at Come On G et Happy To start each day appreciating all of the great things about the city of Palm Bay and sharing at least one positive thought with a coworker or resident before I end my work day.

Expires 1/6/12 Out & about Legendary singer Johnny M athis credits his father with his career. The elder M athis, who loved music, brought a piano into the house and sang for all seven of his children. I was the only one that showed up when he sat down at the piano, Mr. M athis said. My brothers and sisters ran. I was the only one to hand around. I ndeed, Mr. Mathis has hung around, in a career that spans nearly six decades. He comes to the K ing Center on Jan. 7, and he spoke by phone from his home in California about music, fortune and Mr. Mathis most important influence was his father. D ad was a wonderful man, he said. He was my best friend. He and my mom raised seven kids on domestic wages. I recognized early on how giving they were. The elder Mathis introduced his son to C onnie Cox, a classically trained singer. The son did chores to pay for his lessons. M y dad reminded me that I was fortunate to study with a voice teacher, he said. I was a lucky guy to get these lessons. It didnt dawn on me until later on that something could come from the lessons. I loved to learn. Mr. Mathis grew up in S an Francisco and enrolled in San Francisco S tate, with majors in physical education and English. He planned to become a teacher. At 19, he had an opportunity to go to the Olympic Trials in Berkeley, Calif., to select members of the Olympic team for 1956. I had the opportunity to try out as a highjumper, he said. The y ear before, I had sung for a man at Columbia R ecords. He promised to get back to me and he did, the same week as the trials. He called me and said hed like me to come to New York and make my first recording. Learning which songs worked for his style was a process of discovery. I made a lot of mistakes early on, he said. S ome suited my voice and some didnt. Along the way, I met people who we re intuitive. Before you know it, you have an idea of what you do best. O ne of the things that happened was that I went to Brazil at an early age. I got really fascinated with Br azilian music like the samba and the Bossa nova. To this day, its a part of what I sing on stage. A modest man, Mr. M athis credits other musicians and even acoustics for his success. I think sometimes you get a perfect storm, he said. My early records we re made in an old church in New York. They still sound good today. M usicians were willing to help me. They offered me music and I took it. I had no idea what I wanted to sing and how I wanted to sing it. I met (songwriter) R obert Allen on a street corner in New York. He offered me a song. I had no idea who he was. He came through, first with I t s not For Me to Say and then Chances Are. Theres so much good fortune and downright luck. Ive been very lucky. One of Mr. Mathis big breaks came in 1957, when he appeared on the Ed S ullivan Show. It changed his life.

Sister Clara Kelly, clinic medical director, appointed to SCVIM Board of Directors For Hometown News S ister Clara Kelly, a member of the Religious Order of the Sisters of Mercy and advanced registered nurse practitioner, has been appointed to the board of directors of Space Coast Volunteers in Medicine. Sister Clara is currently medical director of the free community clinic located in Palm Bay. B oard president Paul Ringenberger said, Sister Clara brings skill, experience and compassion to our board. While we certainly appreciate her vast medical knowledge and ability to run a clinic, it is her commitment to helping those in need that will inspire and drive our board. Servin g as medical director for a clinic providing free medical, dental and chiropractic care seems to be in harmony with her commitment to her order. S isters of Mercy are women who commit their lives to God, deepening their relationship with God and serving Gods people, especially those who are sick, poor and uneducated. In the spirit of the Gospel, their mission is to help people to overcome the obstacles that keep them from living full and dignified lives. Sister Clara is the heart and soul of our clinic, Mr. Ringenberger said. We wanted this same dedication on our board because we believe it will keep us focused on our mission of providing health care to the uninsured of Brevard County. The Board has been blessed to have someone like Sister Clara, with her passion and determination, joining our team. Shell make a strong board an even stronger and more determined group. U nder Sister Claras leadership, the clinic now has 76 volunteer health providers volunteering their time to help those in need of health care. S tated Sister Clara, This program is about helping those in need who lack health insurance, and Ive seen the results of our work. We improved peoples health and by so doing have made their lives more livable. And though we are only a small safety net for the uninsured, we know this program is fulfilling its mission and delivering results. While Im on the board, Ill make sure we keep our focus on serving the less fortunate with dignity and r espect for every patient that comes through our doors.

They seem to fly by. No matter how early I start writing to get in all I want for the holidays I never start early enough. I guess I have to jump in right after Labor Day. Who could have imagined 2012? When I was a teenager I believed by now we would be flying around in space ships and here we are still driving in cars. It's N ew Years Eve, too late for appropriate recipes. The lectures on eating right, getting in shape, etc., etc. will have to wait, I'm going to devote this column and the next to delectable desserts you will be making for special occasions and then get back on track to all the other stuff. R eal New York cheesecake is only the beginning. S ome recipes require candied fruits; buy them now, they are never available during the year. H appy New Year! N N E E W Y W Y O O R R K K C C H H E E E E S S E E C C AKE AKE This cheesecake will be by far the best you've ever tasted. It is the true, heavy, r ich, New York cheesecake that dreams are made of. M any recipes were tried until I finally learned that the secret to a spectacular cheesecake is not only in the ingredients but in the method of baking. This makes a large cake, you will need a 9or 10-inch spring form pan. Graham cracker crust Pr epare graham cracker crust according to the directions on the box, adding 1/4 cup finely chopped almonds if you like. Press into bottom of spring form pan and bake at 375-degree for 10 minutes. Let cool. While crust is baking, prepare filling. 2-1/2 pounds cream cheese (five 8-ounce packages), softened 3 tablespoons flour 1 teaspoon each of grated lemon and orange rind 1/4-teaspoon vanilla extract 1-3/4 cups sugar 5 large eggs 2 egg yolks 1/4-cup heavy cream C ombine first 4 ingredients, beat with an electric mixer at second speed. Add sugar gradually. Add eggs and egg yolks one at a time, beating lightly after each addition. (If the speed is too high when adding the eggs, too much air gets into the batter and produces a cake of inferior consistency). Stir in cream. P our into prepared pan. B ake at 450 degrees for 10 minutes. (During baking place a pan of water on the bottom rack to prevent cake from cracking). R educe heat to 300 degrees; continue baking 1 to 1-1/2 hours until almost set in center. Tu rn ov en off and leave cake in for 1 hour longer. O pen oven door and leave cake in 10 minutes longer. Let cool, chill, remove sides of pan and top with any glaze or fruit of your choice or serve plain with a side or two of different fruit toppings. IT IT ALIAN C ALIAN C A A S S S S A A T T A A C C AKE (N AKE (N I I B) B) This recipe is from my cousin Ermalina. The cake is purchased from the supermarket bakery or a bakery store. It is a high cake. 1 sponge cake 1 container (2 pounds) r icotta cheese 1 cup confectioner's sugar 3 squares semi-sweet chocolate, chopped fine 5 tablespoons chopped pistachio nuts 1 cup candied fruit 3/4-tablespoon orange liquor 1/3-cup raspberry jam B eat ricotta in a large bowl until smooth. Add sugar, chocolate, nuts and candied fruit (save best pieces to decorate top of cake). C ut cake into 3 or 4 thin layers. Moisten top of each layer with liquor then spread a little jam over top and top with some ricotta mixture. Continue stacking layers, leaving top of cake plain. Chill until set, (at least 2 hours). Cover top with leftover ricotta mixture or dust with confectioner's sugar. D ecorated with reserved fruit.

Now with healthy butter substitutes such as S mart Balance you can enjoy this treat without the saturated fat. 4 tablespoons (1/4-cup) butter or Smart Balance 4 tablespoons (1/4-cup) light brown sugar, firmly packed 1/4-teaspoon cinnamon 1/4-cup banana liqueur* 2 bananas peeled and cut in half crosswise and then lengthwise 1/2-cup slivered almonds (optional) M elt butter in skillet, add brown sugar and cook stirring constantly until sugar melts and color turns a light brown. If you choose to add the almonds, toast them in the butter-sugar mixture until they are golden. A dd the cinnamon and liqueur and cook for about 2 minutes. Add the bananas, basting and warming them in the syrup, turning once. C ool slightly and serve ov er vanilla ice cream. If alcohol is not an option, substitute 1/2 tsp. v anilla. This was originally a flamb and the alcohol was added at the end and flamed. I don't do flames too well so I skip that step.

V ickie Mathis lost 100 pounds in one year and didn t hate every minute of it. Now, as a fitness instructor, the 42-year-old Port St. J ohn resident is showing other plus-sized individuals that healthy bodies can enjoyably be achieved through the popular Latininspired dance program called Zumba. Ms. Mathis walked into her first Zumba class at C ome On Get Happy studio last December, after a friend convinced her to give it a try. S he weighed more than 400 pounds and could hardly move, she said. I could see her move her hips, but nothing else, said H ali Panzak, who owns the studio in Cocoa Village and was teaching at Ms. Mathis first class. I never thought Id see her again. Though Ms. Mathis said she felt out of place as one of only two plus-sized people in the room, she felt more energized after one class than she had in a long time. S he returned, and before long, she was hooked. After three months, Ms. M athis shed 50 pounds and started noticing results, like better eating habits, a stabilized blood pressure, and skyrocketing confidence and energy, she said. I remember when I looked down and was able to see my feet, Ms. Mathis said. Thats something that still gives me goose bumps. W ith Ms. Panzaks help, Ms. Mathis trained to become a Zumba instructor so she could reach out to plus-sized individuals, who often feel uncomfortable working out. They are not going to walk into the gym past body builders and feel good about it, Ms. Panzak said. But they can walk into Vickies class and know that people just like them are there to achieve the same thing, and they can connect with Vickie because shes been on the journey. Ms. Mathis Zumba PLUS classes kicked off in the beginning of December and have grown in popularity, with 18 students at her first one. S he customized routines with moves that plus-sized individuals can perform. W ith the combination of fun moves and an eclectic mix of high-energy music, it is easy to break a sweat in Ms. M athis class without realizing it is a workout. U ltimately, she hopes to create a support group for plus-sized individuals to supplement the class, she said. I used to have very little confidence, Ms. Mathis said. I didnt want people staring at me. Now, when people stare, I like it because even if this is the first time yo u ve seen me, the next time you see me, youre going to see something different. C ome On Get Happy is located at 217 King St. in C ocoa Village.

I hope that all of you found 2011 to be a better y ear than 2010. I also wish that 2012 brings you health and happiness. As I look back on 2011, I r emember a year filled with highs and lows in our sport. I present to you my top seven stories in golf for 2011: No 7: Can we please get a muzzle for caddies? B etween Steve Williams and Jo LaCava, there were more stories written about caddies than half the players on tour. The very public split of W illiams and Tiger Woods became a hot story this summer. Williams joined with Adam Scott, and the duo quickly won. Tigers struggles continued, and the media coverage became a little National Enquirer-like. No 6: In this game, we always talk about bouncing back. No one had a bigger bounce-back in 2011 than Rory McIlroy. After a Masters debacle that made Greg Norman wince, McIlroy thrashed the field and Congressional in the next major. Mc Ilro y won by eight and broke the scoring record by four shots. No 5: There is a young woman for the world to take note of. Her name is Lexi Thompson. At 16, she put on a clinic at the N avistar Classic and became the youngest LPGA winner ever. S he went on to add a win at the Dubai Ladies M asters to become the second-youngest winner on the ladies European tour and will play as a member of the LPGA Tour in 2012. No. 4: If you were a betting person and took D arren Clarke to win the O pen Championship, you may have made enough to r etire. Clarke was a very long 200-1 shot with bookmakers to hoist the Claret Jug. In fact, he was 28-1 to be low Irishman and there were only four in the field! F or those of us who like to take life and golf a little less seriously than most, Clarkes win was fantastic. I know I had a few cigars and a stout or two in celebration. No 3: There appears to be a new dominant world No 1, and her name is Yani T seng. She rolled through the 2011 ladies schedule, picking up a dozen wins, including a pair of major titles. T seng led in nearly every statistical category and finished atop the money list. In her homeland of T aiwan, her appearance led to record attendance. No. 2: If any group needed to get the proverbial monkey off its back, it was the European Solheim C up Team. F or the first time in eight y ears, Europe hosted the trophy. Doing so with a boisterous home crowd in front of Killeen Castle made it all the more special. On my list, the event was the best one of the year. S undays last 60 minutes or so provided golf fans with the ultimate cliffhanger. M atches went back and forth with the highlight being Suzann Pettersen finishing with three straight birdies to defeat M ichelle Wie to help secure the Cup. No. 1: On May 7, our sport lost an icon. At the y oung age of 54, Seve B allesteros passed away. Se ve was to the European tour what Arnold P almer was to the U.S. tour so many years ago. Y ou will be hard-pressed to find anyone who loved this game more than Seve. H is artistry and genius we re untouched by any of his peers. He showed us that while you cant hit every shot perfectly, you shouldnt give up, and if y ou use your imagination, y ou can find a way to post a great score. M ost of all, Seve was one of the most genuine of gentlemen I have ever met. O ur sport was blessed to have him, and something less with his loss.

to be able to monetarily show my appreciation to my parents, he said. I helped them get a house and get out of the little bitty one. We werent poor, but we didnt have any money. The first and only thing I was concerned about with money was the chance to show my folks what I thought of them. M om became president of my fan club. We r eceived letters from all ov er the world. She and D ad answered each one in longhand. While fans of Mr. Mathis are familiar with his music, they may never have seen a live show. The singer discussed what the audience can expect. The first thing I do is come on stage with no fanfare and sing a few songs theyre familiar with, he said. I sneak in a few songs I like and introduce them. I sing for half an hour and then I usually have someone I like come on and lighten up the evening with a few jokes. Of late, that comedian has been Gary Mule Deer, whom Mr. Mathis met at a golf tournament. After an intermission, he returns to the stage. I sing the music I think I sing the best, and a lot of the things my musicians give me. They give me a lot of ideas. They have to listen to me every night and they know what I do best. I try to sing songs that are pleasing and pleasant. I dont worry about r azzle-dazzling the audience. Chances are, youll be pleased. J ohnny Mathis appears at the King Center,3865 N.
