Shopping Line321.727.8062 Program deters drunk driving on Fourth of JulyBREVARD Fourth of J uly is a day celebrated around the nation with fireworks, food, fun and sometimes alcohol. So what happens when the barbeques are over, and its time to go home? If you have alcohol in y our system, AAA and B udweiser dont want you to get behind the wheel. I nstead, the organizations encourage you to call Tow to Go, a free program designed to bring drivers and their vehicles to their homes during holidays. S ince the program began in 1998, it has safely and confidentially removed more than 18,000 intoxicated drivers off the roads in F lorida, Georgia and parts of Tennessee, said Joanna N ewton, AAA spokeswoman for Tow to Go. The reason we do this y ear after year is because we want to protect everybody on the road, not just the intoxicated driver, Ms. N ewton said. S he said the program is unique because it eliminates the issue behind a major reason people drive under the influence: They are worried about leaving their vehicles behind. How ever, she emphasized that the program, offered to both AAA members and non-members, is to be used as a last resort rather than a go-to option for traveling. The program provides local tows only within a 10-mile r adius and can bring as many as two passengers home. In 2010, 17,748 alcoholr elated crashes occurred in F lorida, according to the F lorida Highway Patrol.

Law enforcement to conduct tobacco law compliance checks this summerBREVARD School may be out for summer vacation in Brevard County, but area law enforcement agencies are still on the watch for any retail stores violating Florida law by selling tobacco products to minors. S tudies have shown that almost 90 percent of tobacco users begin using by age 18. About 99 percent of all adult smokers in the United States start by age 26, according to a new study on youth tobacco use released in Mar ch by the U.S. Surgeon Generals Office. The study found that each day in the U.S., 3,800 people younger than 18 take their first puff of a cigarette, and more than 1,000 of them become daily smokers. They replace the 1,200 people who die each day in the U.S. from smoking. Another national study, cited by the Monroe To bacco Prevention and C essation Coalition in I ndiana, found that June, J uly and August are the months with the greatest number of teens, who try tobacco for the first time. R esearchers explained the spike was likely due to teens having less adult-supervised time during the summer. C ompliance checks are planned this summer in Br evard County to deter store owners, managers and employees from selling tobacco products to minors by checking the identification of potential consumers. Those who choose not to obey Florida state statutes will be held accountable. In addition, those in compliance help to reduce the initiation and use of tobacco products by underage youth simply by denying them access. The checks involve a teenaged investigative aide and a law enforcement officer. The teen aide enters the store and attempts to purchase a tobacco product, while the officer remains outside. If the purchase is successful, the store is given a court citation, levied a monetary fine and, in some cases, the clerk is arrested. Store fines range from $500 for the first offense to a loss of the stores tobacco sales permit after the fourth offense. In partnership with the Br evard Tobacco Initiative, state law enforcement agents conducted compliance checks at 510 r etail stores and outlets in Brevard County in 2011 to ensure they were selling tobacco responsibly. Of those checked, 474 stores were found to be in compliance with state laws.

Well, that was about it. How ever, there were other achievements, others overlooked a tiny pin for a weighted grade point average of more than 4.0, the size of a fingernail, no mention of a National H onor Society membership (although it was noted with an asterisk by a students name in the graduating students guide). These things shouldnt have been made so trivial, but there was a bigger problem. A whole special category of graduates was overlooked the students who earned a two-year college degree (Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, etc.) by the time of their high school graduation. There they were, sitting in an honored spot, just behind those up front because of the AP diploma that earns the candidate a special gown and sash, but looking utterly indistinguishable from any other graduate. I didnt notice at first. I had already earned my AP diploma r ights with the flashy sash and gown that accompanies it. They noticed, though, and I heard one of them say you know, those of us that got an AA degree should get a special gown as well. One of the AP students sitting in the front row turned around and said, Well, our classes were harder, you know. Sa dly, that was the end of the conversation, but it got me thinking. What about those who graduated with a Brevard C ommunity College degree? I thought about it as it was just graduation practice and none of us had our graduation regalia on at the time and I r ealized that there was nothing to recognize these graduates. No chord, no sash, no special gown, not even a tiny pin the size of a fingernail. I had also earned my AA degree and AP, and BCC classes we re n t all that different. I had been in BCC courses that took much more time and dedication than any of my AP classes, and on top of that, many more BCC classes (enough to earn a two-year degree) had to be taken to get the degree than AP courses (you had to have six for the diploma); and many BCC students, including myself, took night courses and summer courses just to make it. So I determined that I would go and talk to those in charge of the graduation ceremony to see if there was something that could be done to get these students something to put on their gowns too (there were only 12 graduating with a BCC degree). I finally ended up talking to the principal, the only one with the power to change it, and he said he had never heard a complaint and was not going to do anything about it. My M om, who went there with me to support the cause, even offered to go over to a trophy shop to see if she could buy something that all the BCC-high school graduates could w ear, and he refused. We had to leave, but it was still on my mind; so I determined maybe if I could get enough of the BCC students to complain, at least it could change for the 2013 graduates. Perhaps what he needed was to hear enough people voice how this made them feel. The next day, though, they were overlooked once again in group photos. F irst, all AP students were gathered to take a group picture, then the honors chord graduates, then the pre-AP/AP school academy members. They told us to line up to go out to the graduation ceremony. What happened to the BCC students graduating with an AA degree? No group photo, no mention, skirted to the side, not r ewarded like the others that achieved things of significant v alue. At this point, I was pretty mad, and well honestly, I dont know what to do from here. A petition to sign perhaps but it doesnt fix what already happened that probably has been occurring since these programs came into existence the feeling of working hard earning something special that appears to others as something not as important, perhaps, just because they didnt get anything that visually distinguished them, set them apart among their peers, not even the group picture to hang on a wall. This is an injustice, and something needs to be done.The worst dressed first lady in historyI know Im going to ruffle some feathers when your readers r ead this. However, Im a man, and in my opinion, Michelle Obama is the worst dressed first lady who has occupied the White House, even worse than Eleanor Roosevelt. There is a book on protocol at the White House. It is taught to presidents and first ladies. Apparently, she has cut classes. H er husband should say something to her. Is he afraid of her? There is also a book on protocol for newly-promoted military generals and their wives. What I am talking about is wearing sleeveless clothing for formal and semi-formal occasions. Perhaps she wants to start a new trend. However, what she should do is start the trend when she leaves the White House. I understand she has 23 assistants. One of them should be talking to her on what is appropriate for the ceremony she would be attending. Perhaps they are afraid to do so. S ome of her sleeveless dresses have a flower or flowers bigger than her belly. I think they are awful. S ome of you out there are going to say I am old-fashioned. Let me remind you of one thing a dignified appearance doesnt change and remains acceptable under all conditions. B eing the wife of the President of the United States demands that she show the highest form of dignity at all times. Her sleeveless attire is totally unacceptable. A businessman to run the country?D id I hear correctly?Someone behind (Mitt) Romney, or maybe it was Mr. Romney himself, (or his new BFF Trump), stated that (President Barack) Obama was nevera businessman so how can he run a country.OMG! C an you imagine, (President) Obama is not a businessman. How did he ever get elected? Lets see now, who can weconsider torun for the presidency, who is a businessman and can run a country (business)? How about Tycos Dennis Kozlowski. Lets see, a great businessman but, oh my,he wasindicated for theft. He absconded withmore than $137 million from Tyco, most of that targeted for employee assistance for loans. A brilliant businessman, I must say.Unfortunately (or fortunately), hes in prison for8 1/2 to 25 years.(He was just denied parole after only six years). I dont think we can wait that long. Hes 65 now. Doesnt look good. So hes out. Now, how about Bernard Madoff a genius of a businessman, the Ponzie King. He successfully proceededon pulling off the largest financial fraud in U.S. history.(U.S. H istory, isnt that a hoot?). He founded the Wall Street firm of M adoff Investments Securities LLC that made it possible to pull off the brilliant scam with friends and family as targets as well. You have to be a brilliant businessman to accomplish that. Again, unfortunately hell be mummified by the time we canconsider him for any position in the Oval Office. He s not getting out anytime soon (or anytime at all). Then theres Ken Lay, the founder of Enron. He was a master businessman. But he was indicted in 2006of corporate abuse and accounting fraud but not afterforcing thousand of peopleinto poverty andbankruptcy, loss of pension and savings. Unfortunately(or fortunately) he died before he had to spend some time with the brothers. B ut theres always his partner in crime, Enron CEO Jeff S killing,another businessman. Hes still around and a good possibility to run the country. Hes a businessman to die for. J ack Abramoff, the lobbyist who touted being a businessman in many fields, is walking the street as we speak. He only got six years, and was out in 2010. Lets see whats hes doing these days. He may be interested in running the country better than (President) Obamaever could. We have a lot of businessmen to chose from. I could go on and on comparing the lack of business experience(President) Obama has with the experienced. And this was avery, very, veryshort list of American businessmen to choose from. Ill take my chances. (This is not for political preferences). Im just stating a fact that someone should have thought of before they spoke. A big-time conservative speaksI am a conservative, a big-time conservative, especially after the last 3 1/2 years when Mr. Obama was elected president. If I had not been a Republican then, I sure would be now. I just got a letter from David Axelrod, who is the senior campaign strategist for President Obama. They are complaining because so much money. And he says we arent raising $10 million at a time from anonymous donors. Duh! B ut they can raise $13 million at time from their movie stars and other people, but thats OK. I find it kind of interesting that I, a Republican, would get something like this from the Democrats, and especially Mr. Axelrod, a communist. What is he doing around the president?The lady in SuntreeThis is directed to the lady in Suntree who ranted about what a mess this country is in. I agree that the country is in a mess, but I respectfully disagree with your assessment that President Obama is responsible for the mess. M aybe you could help us pinheads, as you referred to us by a reply to the following questions: 1. What are President Obamas false, famous flip-flops? 2. Which groups just dont get it, and why are they sad? 3. Is President Obama the only politician who would say, or do, anything to get elected? Obviously, you didnt watch the r ecent Republican primary. 4. You must be beyond (the age of having children), but when you were of child-bearing age, did you agree that the government could tell you what you can (and cant) do with y our body? I believe that women are not dumb and have the r ight to make decisions concerning their bodies, and not the government. 5. Can you tell us why the unemployment among women is the highest that it has ever been? What did President Obama do to cause this? 6. You state that the president caused everything the gas and the unemployment, etc. Can you tell us what President Obama did, or didnt do, to cause this condition? Republicans had nothing to do with this situation? Come on! 7. You stated that President killed the space program. If my memory is correct, I think that President Bush killed the program before he left office by cutting its budget. 8. You really got to me when you said that President Obama killed the Keystone Pipeline, which would have created 20,000 jobs and would get us off of foreign oil. And then (you) stated, What dont you get? Well, what I dont get was that Pr esident Obama would have been derelict in his duties if he had approved a pipeline without an environmental impact study. Your biggest kicker was that the pipeline would get us off foreign oil. How? Our government has no say in where private enterprise companies send their oil. Oil goes to the highest bidders.Graduates not recognized properlyGraduation is a wonderful time of year, a time when students get recognized for their achievements making it VIEWPOINTFRIDAY, JUNE 29, 2012 HOMETOWN NEWS WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM Sandy workV olunteer assistant Tiffany Clark, 16, of Melbourne helps teach children how to make a sand arch during sand sculpture class at Pelican P ark in Satellite Beach Thursday, June 14.

www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, June 29, 2012 Melbourne A7 On May 19, Carnegie Hall featured a performance by Holy Trinity students and brothers Dante and Luca V aldivia, who won first prize in the duo division at the 2012 Bradshaw and Buono International Piano Competition. While the Valdivia brothers have been studying the piano from an early age, this was the f irst time Luca, 11, and Dante, 9 have entered the competition, which has divisions for elementary, middle and high school, as well as adult amateurs. Luca and Dante had a rigorous practice schedule with teachers Ann and Caroline Rosen. The mother-daughter team met with the boys for two-hour sessions, four times a week, from January through April. Their hard work culminated with a performance of Schubert's F antasia in F Minor at the winner's recital at Carnegie Hall. Angela Valdivia, the boys' mother, credits the boys' father, Gonzalo V aldivia, for recognizing that they have a good ear for music. He grew up playing the piano in Per u, and still plays and coaches the boys in the ev enings. Angela isn't as melodically adept. "I have no musical ear, so everything sounds wonderful to me," she says. But she is the one who enforces practice time. Angela, a nurse, recognizes the v alue of music, and that it "strengthens the boys' minds." Next year, Luca will be part of the 6th grade Holy Trinity band.

He said he first learned of the cash mob concept shortly after they were launched in areas of New York and O hio last year. I consume news, he said. I do a lot of reading, as a city councilman, to see what other cities are doing to stimulate the economy at a local level. I saw a segment on a cash mob, and I became infatuated with it. The concept is still a work in progress said Mr. Jones, but the basic rules are pretty simple. The business must be locally owned, everyone is to meet in front of another business and travel by foot to the mystery business, a minimum of $20 must be spent and everyone meets at a third business in the area at the end, Mr. Jones said. Mr. Jones decided to make the inaugural cash mob Melbourne-chosen business a mystery to increase excitement. W e re trying a mystery business approach from the first cash mob, he said. No one has the perfect recipe. We will refine the recipe as we go. When choosing the mystery business, Mr. Jones said he looked for a business o wner, who was plugged into the community at large and who looks to give back. Mr. Jones said he felt like he made the right decision as soon as he spoke with the o wner, who is actively working with a nonprofit organization. I m a big advocate of volunteerism and nonprofits, Mr. Jones said. He said participants would get the opportunity to learn more about the people behind the mystery business and their chosen charity at the event. The information is there if people want it, he said. B ut there is no expectation placed on them. Downtown Melbourne was chosen to stage the cash mob for many reasons, Mr. J ones said. Its walkability was a major factor. A s we walk through downtown, many more businesses will be exposed to the mob, Mr. Jones said. When participants arrive at the meet-up location, M atts Casbah, they will be given a ticket for a chance to win additional $20 bills to spend at the event, thanks to hometown sponsor, Waste M anagement. Mr. Jones said half of the sponsorship money will be given away to participants, as part of the raffle, and the other half will be donated to the mystery business chosen charity. After the initial meet-up, the group will travel to the mystery business and then close the day at Off the Traxx. W e know we arent saving businesses with a one-day effort, Mr. Jones said.

to create awareness of a specific area and local businesses. M elbourne resident Sandy Pfrimmer, who heard about the event on Facebook, said she plans on attending. I d heard of a flash mob, but not of the cash mob, she said. I think its a great idea, and Im looking forward to the experience. S ocial media has played a big role in creating awareness of the event. The Facebook page has brought attention to the event and serves as the communication portal for attendees and curious onlookers. I t s a social experiment, Mr. Jones said. Though people are hearing about the event online, they must shut down their computers to participate. Its rev erse social engineering, Mr. Jones said. This really encourages people to socialize face to face. Mr. Jones said the June 30 event would be the first of several to come in Brevard. He plans on organizing other cash mob events throughout Brevard County. H is hope is to bring people together, promote local businesses, group activities and enhance the community. I m doing this just because, he said. Im not making money. I want to serve my community. Its in my best interest and everyones if local businesses survive. The Melbourne Cash Mob will meet at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, June 30 at Matts Casbah on New Haven Avenue.

That book, The Officers Girl, was set in Florida during a hurricane. Now, the Florida native has turned her attention to another aspect of Florida life, the cattle industry and rodeos. Rodeo Daughter, out this month, is the story of Amanda Markette, a former rodeo star turned family law attorney. She comes up against a childhood sweetheart, Mitch Goodwin, when she represents his former wife, Kar en, in a custody battle. The book, named a Top Pick by R omantic Times magazine, has twists and turns as Karen Goodwin, who gave up custody of her daughter, decides she wants it back. Allegations of abuse bring in social worker Sarah Magarity, but in true Harlequin fashion, all works out in the end. The characters are not all good or all bad, and this, Ms. Duncan said, is by design. I could have made Kar en a terrible person, she said. I like the way she redeemed herself. I loved the scene where she wanted Hailey to know that her mama loved her. I cried when I wrote it. I try to create flawed characters. Theyre no perfect, but theyre no evil. Ms. Duncan said her editor is a help with that. I f the hero pushes past likeability, she asks if I could dial that back. You have to keep in mind the one promise a romance writer makes, that there will be a happily ever after. Then Ive done my job. The writer said that this book about cowboys and the law took a lot of r esearch. Y ou have to have your facts correct, she said. W ith contemporary r omance, you can make up situations, but you have to have your facts right. Ms. Duncans next book, R anchers Son, will be out at Christmas and will tell the story of Sarah Magarity, the social worker from Rodeo Daughter. It s about a family of r anchers recreating cattle drives for tourists. Why cowboys are so popular in romantic fiction is a bit of a mystery. I really dont understand why everyone loves cowboys, Ms. Duncan said. We do have a lot of ov erseas sales, and there is a huge love affair with the American West. P eople think of the cowboy era as an idyllic time, with John Wayne. They think of it as a simpler time when people knew what was right and wrong. Ms. Duncan is a member of the Space Coast Authors of Romance, a group that meets monthly at the West M elbourne Library. Several times a week, a small group of writers, including Ms. Duncan, Roxanne St. Claire, Kristen Painter and Lara Santiago, meet for Wr iters Camps, which are day-long writing sessions. Wor king with other writers is a big help for Ms. D uncan. When I got the call about Rodeo Daughter and Ranchers Son, they gave me a short deadline, she said. Having the support of fellow writers in a boot camp environment is how I got it done. I usually find it works best if I say I am going to write x number of words a day and a keep a chart to keep on track. At the moment, Ms. D uncan has a proposal for a new book at the publisher. Its another subject close to her heart. I t s a baseball book, she said. My son played baseball through college at F lorida Tech. We grew up on ball fields, and several of his friends played in the minor leagues. Im eager to get started. F or more information about Leigh Duncan, visit www.leighduncan.com.

Your veterinarian is the other family physician. Lately, it seems that there has been local re ports ofnon-veterinarians charading as doctors for your pets. Re ports have recently come to life re gar ding this with mobile vaccine practices. Also, I have clients who tell me that some with some nonmobile clinics, there has been no doctor examining their pet prior to v accinations, especially with rabies administration, which is a Florida State law! They may also use a v eterinary technician, instead ofa doctor, for an exam. This, too, is not legal. Please, ask ifyour pet is seeing a v eterinarian at the time oftheir v accines and check the lobby/receptionist area for a state, county, and/or city license for that v eterinarian. Ifit is a veterinary establishment, check for a premise permit also. Don't be lured in by low v accine prices, as your beloved pet may not be getting an exam by a licensed doctor.
