When the presidenteventually made his appearance a little before noon, the large crowd erupted with cheers and applause. B efore he began his speech, the president smiled and told the crowd to "take a seat if you have one, because I'm going to be talking for a while." The president's speech began with some light humor, as he told the crowd that he would be finished in time for an NFL kick-off. It also featured moments of audience interaction, with one woman shouting out, "I love you, Obama," to which the president replied, "I love you, too." How ever, when the president started to dive deeper into his speech, he spoke passionately of Medicare and the space program. "W e' ve begun an ambitious new direction for NASA by laying the groundwork for 21st Century space flight, and, just last month, witnessed an incredible achievement that speaks to our nation's sense of wonder and our can-do the U nited States of America landing Curiosity on Mars," Pr esident Obama said to the cheering crowd, eliciting additional cheers and excitement. This was the president's 10th time visiting Florida this year, but the first time he has visited the Space C oast in 2012, as well as his first visit to Florida Tech. "F lorida Tech is honored that the president of the Un ited States chose to stop on campus," said Wes Sumner, a spokesman for Florida Tech. "This is the first time that a U.S. president has been to the university. The world spotlight is shining on Florida Tech." R egarding Medicare, Pr esident Obama told the crowd that he would never turn the program into a "v oucher," unlike what he said his opponent Mitt R omney would do. "W e' ve already added y ears to the life of Medicare by getting rid of taxpayer subsidies to insurance companies that weren't making people any healthier and making things more expensive for everybody," Pr esident Obama said. "We used part of the savings to help lower the cost of prescriptions and offer free preventive care to seniors. I thought that was a good idea." Grace Olszewski, a Breva rd C ounty resident and Brevard reports three shooting deaths during holiday weekendAuthenTec merger with Apple awaits shareholder approvalBREVARD Three separ ate shootings that happened during the Labor D ay weekend in Brevard C ounty resulted in three deaths, with a fourth victim in the hospital undergoing treatment. In the first incident, authorities arrested W illiam T. Woodward, 43, of 1960 Smith Dr. in T itusville the early morning of Monday, Sept. 3. P olice said Mr. Woodward shot his neighbors Ga ry Lee Hembree, 39, R oger Picior, 44, and Bruce T imothy Blake, 49, outside of their homes. Mr. Hembree died at the scene, and Mr. Picior died W ednesday, Sept. 5, as a r esult of his injuries. Though shot several times, Mr. Blake remained in stable condition as of press time. "(Mr. Woodward) is curr ently in custody at the Br evard County Jail," Lt. Cleyton Brey of the T itusville Police Department said. "He was very cooperative." B ased on witness statements, Lt.

with the deal, AuthenTec, which specializes in encryption technology, fingerprint sensors and identity management software for mobile devices and computers, has invited shareholders to attend a special meeting to consider and vote upon the potential merger of the two companies Thursday, Oct. 4 at 10 a.m. at the offices of Alston & Bird LLP, 1180 W. P eachtree St., 15th floor, in A tlanta, Ga. A ccording to the company, the $356 million merger cannot be completed until it gets the green light from the majority of AuthenTec's shareholders. The Oct. 4 meeting will include a vote on the merger agreement and approval of the compensation that may become payable to AuthenTe c' s named executive officers in connection with the merger. The AuthenTec Board of Di r ectors unanimously recommends that (the shareholders) vote for' approval of the proposal to adopt the merger agreement," said Lawrence Ciaccia, chief executive officer of AuthenT ec, in a press release to shareholders. In the release, Mr. Ciaccia emphasized that each vote made by the shareholders is crucial for the potential partnership. "(The shareholders') vote is very important, regardless of the number of shares of company stock (he or she) o wns," he said. "The failure to vote (their) shares will have the same effect as a vote against' the approval of the proposal to adopt the merger agreement." Mr. Ciaccia said shareholders who cannot make the scheduled meeting in A tlanta may submit their vote by accessing the website or mailing their vote to company headquarters. If the transaction is approved by shareholders, A uthenTec will become a wholly owned subsidiary of App le Inc. senior, said, prior to the event, that she was excited to see President Obama speak. "I 'm very interested in health care," Mrs. Olszewski said. "I hope everyone votes for him to give him the chance to finish what he started." The president was introduced onstage by Palm Bay r esident Mary French, a r etired member of the FBI, r egistered Republican and supporter of the Obama campaign. Ms. French said she voted for President Obama in 2008 and she believes that, while the country has changed, R epublican views on the issues most important to her have not, including issues involving women's health. "O ur president cares about each and every one of y ou," Ms. French said to the crowd. "He cares about the middle class. He cares about the economy and jobs. He strives to make equality for all." Ms. French also commended the president's decision to send U.S. Navy SEALs to Pakistan to kill O sama Bin Laden. The morning of the speech, President Obama visited Ossorio Bakery and C afŽ in Cocoa Village for breakfast. "We were given a 20minute notice before he arrived," said Chelsea P atrick, an employee at O ssorio Bakery and CafŽ. "H e was very charming. It didn't feel like you were meeting the president. He was the easiest person to talk to." Ms. Patrick said the day after President Obama's visit, the restaurant was very busy, and customers asked for more information re garding his stop at the cafŽ. Du r ing his visit to the S pace Coast, President Obama also took a few minutes to speak with Brevard C ounty Commissioner R obin Fisher. "H e was busy trying to learn everyone's concerns, but I was able to whisper in his ear that spaceflight is important to us, and the faster he can get humans up and flying, the faster it will create jobs in the area," C ommissioner Fisher said. This is something we need figured out." Staff writer Meagan Mc Gone contributed to this article.

"Quite frankly, people were getting ripped off," said Mr. Goldfarb, who owns Square Deal Gold Buyers with his partner, JR Bott. "There was a need for a trustworthy goldbuying business in the area." So three years ago, Square Deal Gold Buyers began building its business on trust in the Melbourne Square Mall. "Based on that, we've grown our business tremendously," Mr. Goldfarb said. "All of the trust that we've built over two and a half years has led us to be the No. 1 gold buyer in Brevard County." Now it is located in the Chase building adjacent to the mall, in Suite 102 West of 1990 W. Ne w Haven Ave. "Our concern is some people think we're out of business right now," Mr. Goldfarb said. "We are here with the same great people and the same service." In its new location, Square Deal Gold Buyers ensures safety among its customers with the installation of 14 cameras that monitor all transactions made, as well as a secured entrance to the office itself. To prevent fraud and undervaluing pieces, trained appraisers evaluate karat purities in front of the clients by performing various tests. "We talk to people about their jewelry and its worth," Mr. Goldfarb said. "We will check the exact karat purities and current spot market price. We will explain how the market and process works, w hat types of equipment we use for testing and answer any questions they may have." And when it's decision time, Mr. Goldfarb said there is no pressure. "We do not attempt to pressure our clients to sell, but in fact do our best to educate our clients on the value of their items so they can see why we offer what we do," he said. He said when offering cash for a client's gold, Square Deal Gold Buyers can offer up to 30 percent higher than other, similar businesses. On one occasion, he offered a woman $1,400 for a piece that she was going to sell for $250 to a mail-away cash-for-gold company. "You have some people that try to rip people off and make a living," he said. "Our plan is a cumulative thing. We'd rather have many customers who contribute a little bit each. "We're a for-profit business, but we're local guys," He said. "The money stays in Brevard. W e're not mailing it away. All our employees are from Brevard. It's a really good business model." "This is a professional atmosphere for gold buyers, and we want to expand on that," he said. Square Deal Gold Buyers is open from 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. F or more information, visit www.squaredealgold.com or call (321) 821-4947.

www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, September 14, 2012 Melbourne A3 041382 035947 034830 Framework finished for Atlantis exhibitBREVARD A steel beam locked into place atop a 115-foot structure marked the completion of the framework for space shuttle A tlantis' exhibit at the K ennedy Space Center V isitor Complex. The topping out ceremony, which took place on W ednesday, Sept. 5., commemorates the overall completion of the building's structure, which will honor the shuttle program. Though there is still much work to be accomplished, guests might be able to view the Atlantis space shuttle exhibit as early as July, said Andrea Farmer, public r elations manager for the K ennedy Space Center V isitor Complex. W ith the framework complete, workers tasked with building the shuttle's new home will begin enclosing the space, leaving one wall open, so Atlantis can be rolled into the structure on Nov. 2. Then, they will begin constructing the interior of the 90,000square-foot exhibit. On the inside, guests will experience an up-close display of Atlantis, tilted at an intentional 43.21 degrees, as if it were traveling in space, with its payload bay doors open. S urrounding it will be 62 exhibits, including a fullscale mockup of the Hubble S pace Telescope and a fullscale model of a portion of the International Space S tation, according to www.nasa.gov. To complete the structure, it will take 1,400 tons of steel and $100 million. "P lease keep in mind that no tax dollars are used to fund the operation, maintenance and development of K ennedy Space Center V isitor Complex," Ms. Fa r mer said. "Proceeds are used from ticket, retail and food sales." S he said that being home to NASA's orbiter is a great honor for the state of F lorida and Brevard County. "W e anticipate an increase of 12 percent in attendance once the orbiter home opens," she said. A ccording to the Kennedy S pace Center's website, www.kennedyspacecenter.co m the exhibit will be the highlight of the Kennedy S pace Center Visitor C omplex's 10-year master plan, proposed by the complex's operator, D elaware North Companies. The plan's goal is to "t r ansform NASA's Kennedy S pace Center Visitor C omplex into a place where explorers of all ages can tour America's spaceport to engage with the people and machines that shape the future of our world," according to the website. F or the topping out ceremony, hundreds of workers, as well as Kennedy S pace Center and Kennedy S pace Center Visitor C omplex staff members, signed the final beam before it was added to the structure. Among those signatures was Bob Cabana's, the director of the Kennedy S pace Center. "A tlantis, the last space shuttle to ever fly in space, is going to look like it actually is in space here at the Kennedy Space Center," Mr. Cabana said during the ceremony. "I can't think of a more fitting place to tell that story." F or more information, visit www.kennedyspacecenter.com.

MELBOURNE Dale V icos wants the public to know that his arm wrestling competition, "Guts-NG lory," isn't your everyday "bar-room brawl." There is uncanny sportsmanship at my competitions," said Mr. V icos, an arm wrestler for 35 y ears and vice president of the National Power Arm Wr estling Association. "This competition is for people of all types. It doesn't matter if y ou have never competed before. No one walks away embarrassed." Mr. Vicos is the organizer and tournament director of the Central Florida Armwrestling Championships, held at Off the Tr axx, 918 E. New Haven Av e. in Historic Downtown M elbourne, Saturday, Sept. 15. The event will include 27 different weight classes and divisions for men and women, including a beginner division, titled "Right H and-Novice." No experience is necessary, and the tournament will include a double-elimination. While Mr. Vicos has been conducting arm wrestling tournaments since 1998, he said this event will be the third consecutive arm wrestling competition he has hosted in Brevard C ounty. While training for an arm wrestling competition, Mr. V icos, a 25-year U.S. Air force veteran, said working out in the gym isn't necessarily the only way to prepare. "I t' s not always people who go to the gym who participate," he said. "We have a lot of blue-collar workers who do very well, especially people who are mechanics or work in masonry. Tennis players do very well, too. They have strong forearms." Mr. Vicos said arm wrestling is also 30 percent mental. "P eople will get psyched out sometimes. Someone will look (at their opponent), and they will think they can't beat them," he said. "You can't go by looks. One time, I had a 14-yearold girl, who weighed 115 pounds beat a 360-pound woman in her 20s." Mr. Vicos said he hopes to also feature a "Battle of the B adge" competition, featuring firefighters versus police officers. Any badge-wearing professional in the field of firefighting, law enforcement, prison guard, either civilian or military will be allowed to compete," he said. The event will also feature a few special guests, including Dann Carr, creator of the television series "American Gladiators," who is a two-time world and five-time national-arm wrestling champion in the 1970s, Mr. Vicos said. Mr. Carr is known as "A pache Dann" in the arm wrestling world. Mr. Vicos said there will also be professional wrestlers from the "Team 3D" Pr ofessional Wrestling A cademy located in Kissimmee in attendance. R egistration and weighins are from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The tournament begins at 2:30 p.m., is $15 and co-ed couple's registration is $20 total. Registration ends at 1:30 p.m. Ages in the competition include 16 and older. Anyone younger than 18 must have parental consent. R egistration for the "B attle of the Badge" competition is $5.

Lt. Brey said the victims we re most likely unaware that Mr. Woodward was outside, while they were y elling insults in the direction of his home. S hortly after, Mr. Woodward gunned down Mr. H embree in his own yard on Smith Drive in T itusville. The other two victims fled to the next yard over. Mr. Woodward then followed the men and shot them, as well. Lt. Brey said Mr. Woodward, a Gulf War veteran, claimed he suffered from post traumatic stress disorder. "I believe that is probably the case," Lt. Brey said. There may have been some kind of brain trauma, as a result of his time in the army."

At the time of the shooting, the v an was parked next door in the SunTrust bank parking lot. F ollowing the shooting, the driver of the van, who has not yet been identified, drove away. Mr. Burgman then placed the gun in a nearby trash can, police said. "M r. Bu r gman is claiming to have been robbed of $600 cash and stands by his claim to have disarmed one of the subjects in the v an," said Yvonne Martinez, public information coordinator at City of Palm Bay. As of press time, police we re still trying to determine who was in the van at the time of the shooting and if any injuries were sustained. In another incident later that evening, Palm B ay Police reported that 22-year-old Brandon Jones of Palm Bay was shot to death Sunday evening near the intersection of F lorida Avenue and Washington Street.

As of now, we have wasted more than $400 billion in Afghanistan!T each skills that carry kids through lifeThe reason the rant writer ran into a 27-year-old who couldn't read "cursive writing" is because they don't teach it in elementary, middle or high school in Brevard County. Un r eal. They can't sign their names, some of them. They can't r ead the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, the Constitution. Perhaps that is the plan? They don't want kids to read their history. They also no longer teach typing, which is also unreal. K ids use computers left and right, yet they mostly "hunt and peck," as typing skills are not taught in our high schools, nor elementary or middle schools. Why? The things that provided me survival skills out of high school were cursive writing, typing and consumer math, which is also not taught. In consumer math, I learned to amortize a loan, balance a check book, trade stocks, read a stock chart and much more things I have done throughout my life, since graduating in 1967 from high school. Br evard Public Schools should be ashamed. I have taught my son cursive writing. I have taught my son typing or keyboarding skills, so he no longer hunts and pecks. I have taught my son consumer math skills, as well as algebra, geometry, calculus and trigonometry. Yes, together we learned or relearned them all. What he uses all the time is the consumer math skills. No w is the time for the School Board to wake up and teach skills that carry kids through life, not just out the door at the end of the school year. We are missing the boat in our schools, big time.V oter fraud, business community and citizen direct democracyB lackboxvoting.org is America's watchdog election group, founded by Bev Harris; who, in 2000, came to Florida, dumpster diving into Supervisor of Elections dumpsters after resultsevidence and spread sheets. What she found was results altering taking place. She also discovered that "Diebold," a Republican-owned electronic accounting system companyclosely tied to the "BANKS," o wned the electronic voting systems. There are three to four such companies in the national voter accounting system, and the word is "Diebold" secretly o wns 90 percent of these systems under differentcompany names,all whichcan be result altered in many ways and stages. F or the past 15 years since Lawton Chiles died in office, theRepublican businesscommunity has dominated every level of representative government in Florida,except the U.S. Senate, until (Mel) Martinez was elected, and now (Mario) Rubio. I personally am fed-up with Republican-style government, what representative government is and the wealthy business community, who,with bribes and law firm lobbyist puppet-mastering, have everything their way. The money, power and wealthy all end up with the wellconnected few; and the average citizens gets to be fleeced as a consumer and taxpayer or entirely left out of the money loop facing what poverty has to offer. My choice of changewould be bust-up this kleptocratic r epublic combination of wealthy elites and stooge lawmakers lining their pockets first in priority, or better yet outlaw the two forms of capitalism and representative government. I would prefer to have real true citizen direct democracy, where the citizens directly rule and control over money, business and government. If y ou go vote in November and aren't happy that representative government has been bribed or paid off to keep up the fleecing of citizens, then vote to fire that lawmaker. FCAT is a joke we can't do anything aboutA 70-year-old man wrote in about the FCAT and how absolutely sickening it is. I say kudos! I have a 7and 12-year-old. My 7-year-old begins third grade this year; and when I asked her if she was excited that summer is just about over and she will be an official thirdgrader, her response threw me off. She said "I am scared, M ommy." I asked her why, and she said "Because I have to take FCATS this time and they're hard, and the teachers get all mean." My heart sank. The truth is, the kids are pressured, teachers are stressed and schools, even the best, see dollar Agoraphobia fearI suffer with something called agoraphobia. It is a psychological response from having had severe trauma in my life two family members murdered in two separate homicides, r ape, robbery and I could go on. Agoraphobia is the fear of leaving one's home or safe place. There is no precise medical treatment other than those r elative to depression/post traumatic stress syndrome. I am not able to leave my home to go the grocery store, doctor appointments and to carry on with necessities outside my house, also known as life. S o-called friends and neighbors seem to think I choose to stay in. This is not my choice. I'd give my right arm just to be normal and just to walk out my door. Why would anyone choose to live in such insanity? N eighbors and so-called friends don't think to call to see if I need anything at the store when they go to shop. When I call them to ask for that kind of help, almost always something is going on with them that they cannot help me. If and when I ever recover from this agoraphobia, I pray that I'll be tuned in to help others who are neglected and misunderstood.Playing the lotteryI am calling about all the lottery players out there. My r ant is about people standing in line at a courtesy center at a grocery store just to check their lottery tickets. I tell them there is a machine right in front of them that does the same thing the clerk does. It checks your lottery numbers. I nstead of wasting the clerk's time and the time of the people standing in line behind you waiting to ask a question or to buy something, use the machine, buy a paper or use the internet to find out if your number won. That's all I have to say. I'm a lottery player myself. The clerks usually have printouts of the winning numbers on the counters, too.Defense budget cutsC utting the defense budget would solve many problems. Those "Bained" never to be employed again people, due to age/experience/wages, could be supported until ready for Social Security. F unding for Medicare, especially if insurance companies we re taken out of Medicare, could be funded. Same for S ocial Security. Also, the best benefit, the United States of America could not go to useless wars, like Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan, etc. No more would we be the Foreign Legion of the world, wasting our resources. They could even build useful things, like schools, roads, bridges, parks, etc., like the WPA did in the 1930s. As an example, the high school my wife went to was built in 1935 and is still in use. Does any weapon system or other gear last? They are still pouring millions into the failed "Star W ars" system. Why? F our hundred eighty-seven billion would at least set us on the road back from some of the military/industrial welfare insanity.

C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. Letters to the EditorLonesome George' and the Indian RiverD ear Editor: Any dire prediction that something will soon v anish, such as "without protection and care, the I ndian River Lagoon will quickly be gone," often has little or no impact beyond a dedicated few. U nfortunately, a dedicated few, regardless of how exhaustive and admirable their efforts, are too often ineffective. H abitually, those who should listen and join preventive actions too often think the problem is ov er-stated, politically motivated or that "something" will be done by someone" to prevent the disaster. I've recently returned from the Galapagos I slands. There, I met Lonesome George" of Pinta Island. He represented one of the 11 remaining r aces of the Galapagos G iant Tortoise (Geochelone elephantopus abingdoni). W ith millions of tortoises in the world, what made Lonesome George" special? Well, he was a giant tortoise, he was in the G alapagos, and while both make him special, there's something else that made him not only extraordinary, but also terribly tragic. "G eorge," found in 1971, was the last Pinta Island tortoise. There have been 41 years to study "George," propose solutions, find alternatives and make plans. The result was simply that there are no more of his species. N one. There is no recovery; no last minute reprieves, there is nothing anyone can do. This is the ultimate finality. When he died, his entire race was dead. Ye s, there are other tortoises, terrapins, turtles and other shelled animals. Ye s, there are any number of places we can go to see them, catch them or make them road kill. One could say then that when "Lonesome George" passed, it made little difference. And, after all, he may have lived more than 100 years. But when one actually saw him, understanding that when he died there were no others left and nothing could be done to prevent his death, the fact that there are other types of tortoises means little. There was nothing abstract, overstated or political about this death it was absolute, forever. As it is with the Indian River Lagoon. I never want it said, "We had more than 40 years to take action, but when one saw the lagoon, understood that when it died there was nothing left and now nothing can be done to prevent this death, the fact that there are other rivers, lagoons, lakes and oceans means little." Ye s, the Indian River Lagoon is large; yes, it is full of fish, and yes, it is in trouble. We have known the trouble for years. The trouble is not something new, discovered just in 2012. F or example, in 2001, the F ish & Wildlife Research I nstitute collected 935 fish, r epresenting 42 species, in the Indian River. R eports indicated at least one fish from 14 different species had unsafe mercury levels. Eleven species showed mercury levels so high that women of childbearing age and y oung children should eat them no more than once a month. Leading reasons attributed to this pollution of our cherished lagoon include r unoff from lawns, gardens, fertilizer, faulty storm drains and pollution spewed from industry. Fu r ther, this study did not discuss red tides, brown tides, fish kills and sick dolphins. All that said, we simply are not taking care of our most valuable natural r esource; we are not taking care of ourselves. I have heard that we r eally don't have to do anything to save the Indian River Lagoon; nature is cyclic and it will take care of its self. I've heard that there's plenty of time to study, years and years ahead to solve the problems if there are problems. I've heard that the problems and any possible solutions are somehow tied to politics, economics or personal interests. We must take action now, if it is already not too late, See LETTERS, A7 Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 50 59 Tu rnpike Feeder Road, Ft.

www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, September 14, 2012 Melbourne A7 035766 Holy Trinity Episcopal Academys Upper School, known for its academic and athletic rigor, also offers a course for budding entrepreneurs. Taught by P aul Suchoski, a retired entrepreneur, whose background is in the technology sector, the class is available to sophomores, juniors and seniors. Its Suchoskis third y ear teaching the intimate class (he keeps enrollment to about 15 students). Prior to this v olunteer teaching position, he was an early employee at JDS Uniphase, a high-tech communications company and served as CEO of Optium, an Orlandobased firm that focuses on fiber optics. After several speaking engagements at the school and launching an entrepreneurship club four years ago, Headmaster Cathy Ford approached him about a more regular position. Suchoski, a father of two Holy Trinity graduates and one currently enrolled as a senior, admits to being nervous at first, but says teaching the class is the most fun Ive ever had at work.Ž Students are responsible for two projects each quarter, including an elevator speech (a 30second pitch as to why they should be admitted to their college of choice); an idea for a business that would succeed in a school environment; a business idea for their hometown market; and a financial analysis of two competitive companies (such as Coke and Pepsi). The class seems to stick with his students: He frequently gets call from Holy Trinity graduates, who have great ideas for new products and businesses.

A child can swing it all year with a D average, pass the FCAT and be promoted, and a child with an A average can fail the FCAT and be retained? Real ly? I do agree that parents are not as involved with their children and their studies as they should be. I do not agree with your statement, "Don't touch my child when they misbehave in school," It is part of the problem. I don't put my hands on my children. Why in the world would I allow anyone else to? Children have a lot of r ights that you, considering y our age, did not have growing up. My children are honor students, the youngest is in the Gifted Student Program, and my oldest was accepted into a Science and Technology Choice Program. It takes an involved parent and open relationships with them, as well as their educators. We don't have to smack their hands with r ulers or take away their r ights. FCAT is a joke. It stresses everyone out, and I'm sure the people who made the test couldn't pass it themselves. U nfortunately, we can't do anything about it. We prepare them the best we can and wait all summer to get the scores. S ad, but true. Gay marriage in BostonWhen Chick-fil-A owner D an Cathy defendedhis company's support of "the B iblical definition of the family unit," Boston mayor M enino and other progressive liberals who championgay marriage, advocated a ban on further Chick-fil-A restaurants in B oston. Is n' t it amazing that liberals can have an opinion, but Conservatives cannot? Liberal hypocrisy abounds when mayor M enino was at a ribbon cutting a for city-subsidized mosque that teaches "death to gays." The mayor also effectively gave away city land valued at $1.8 million to the I slamic Society of Boston's mosque, and then gave a speech at the ribboncutting ceremony. Does the Ma y or support the Muslim teaching, "death to gays?" We ll, since it doesn't sound like Muslims are opposed to gay marriage, I guess that Menino has no r eason to "keep them out." Ca n you spell hypocrite? Sure, M-e-n-i-n-o. The Biblical"end of days"must surely be approaching quickly.Cut the budgets nowWhat do the following have in common: millage r ate increases, property v alue "rollback," previous "c r itical" school board, 25 percent sales tax requirement, current "critical" .50 percent sales tax requirement? The above have resulted in higher property tax bills. After last year's increases we re passed by the county commissioners, county manager and school board, they "found" $1 million for beach sand, and have transferred more than $25 million in tax collections to re serve accounts. If th ey had $26 million unaccounted for, why did they all vote on raising our property taxes? A ccording to the proposed school budget, there is a surplus of more than $77 million. The taxpayers have cut corners to pay their housing, food and higher taxes ov er the past three years.

Blasting Off To Save More Lives'The Central Brevard H umane Society is "Blasting Off to Save More Lives" during the 2012 ASPCA R achael Ray $100K Challenge, which runs through Oct. 31. The Humane Society will be trying to save at least 300 more lives, as its staff did the same time last year, for a chance at more than $500,000 in grant funding, including a grand prize of $100,000. Du r ing the Humane S ociety's "Blasting Off" campaign, it will be offering special promotions, like 50 percent off adoption fees on all cats and dogs, and free microchipping, rabies v accines and pet care products. I ndividuals that adopt a new "fur kid" during the challenge will have an opportunity to spin the "F uzzy Wheel of Fury" for a chance to "win" additional adoption savings! The 2012 ASPCA Rachael R ay $100K Challenge is a nationwide competition for animal shelters aimed at getting more animals adopted or returned to their o wners than ever before. F or more information, contact the Central Brevard H umane Society at (321) 6363343 or visit www.crittersavers.com.American astronauts launching from U.S.NASA has announced new agreements with three American commercial companies to design and develop the next generation of United States human space flight capabilities, enabling a launch of astronauts from U.S. soil in the next five years. Ad v ances made by these companies, under newlysigned Space Act agreements, through the agency's C ommercial Crew Integrated C apability initiative, are intended to ultimately lead to the availability of commercial human space flight services for government and commercial customers. While NASA works with U.S. industry partners to develop commercial space flight capabilities to low Earth orbit, the agency also is developing the Orion MultiP urpose Crew Vehicle and the Space Launch System, a crew capsule and heavy-lift rocket to provide an entirely new capability for human exploration. D esigned to be flexible for launching spacecraft for crew and cargo missions, SLS and Orion MPCV will expand human presence beyond low Earth orbit and enable new missions of exploration across the solar system.

On a high school senior trip, she saw the first man to walk on the moon at the American Embassy in W arsaw, Poland; and I saw the event in the dayroom of the U.S. Air Force barracks at Biggs Field in Ft. Bliss, T exas. It was 1969. She and her high school group were led into a room at the embassy in Warsaw and sat in chairs in front of a small, blackand-white television, while hundreds of Polish people walked through doors at the back of the room in an almost endless procession, viewing the event as they walked by. I was called to the barr acks dayroom for another r eason and was able to watch the event at the same time in Texas. One could see the moon shining through the windows of the dayr oom. We both remember those famous words: "One small step for man, and one giant leap for mankind." We discovered later that was not exactly what Neil Armstrong was supposed to say, but it was right at the time and good enough for us. It made us proud to be Americans. N eil Armstrong died last month, and we will miss that great American hero, even though there were documents and movies that suggested that America did not actually land on the moon in 1969, at all. H istory, now, of course, has dismissed that myth. Another American hero we will miss, even though he is still alive, is Lance Armstrong. As a bicyclist, Lance Armstrong won numerous T our de France honors and titles. He won them under several banners, including that of the banner of the U.S. Postal Service. At first, some of my Postal Se r vice friends thought that supporting and financing a T our de France bicyclist was a waste of Postal Service time and money, but most came around" and accepted that it was good for the image of the Postal Service and the U.S. in the world. No w, even though Tour de Fr ance bicyclists were, and currently are, tested for performance-enhancing drugs, charges have supposedly been brought against American hero Lance Armstrong for the alleged use of drugs during his Tour de France days, based on old "evidence" that may have been compromised or mis-handled over the years. To strip Lance Armstrong of his Tour de France titles because of this and someone's testimony of their beliefs now is like giving credit to the movie business for creating the doubt that we never actually landed on the moon. To take away something someone has already earned under the existing r ules of the time would be like taking away Eagle Scout badges, NBA championships and, in this case, T our de France medals. Lance Armstrong, riding with a disability for America, won the Tour de France at least seven times. If someone doesn't like that after the fact that is too bad. Let our heroes remain heroes.

This problem can occur in any size pooch, but is seen more often in large breed dogs, such as Mastiffs, Great Danes, etc. This syndrome can make a very healthy dog become sick and this may even become fatal very quickly. Some ofthe risk factors include one large meal per day or eating very quickly and then exercising after a large meal. Once the stomach turns, it starts to blow up (bloat) and circulation to the stomach and spleen are cut off. Symptoms include nausea and retching, a distended abdomen, and lots of a bdominal pain. They can also show signs ofanxiety which include drooling, pacing, and r estlessness. T his is an emergency situation and you need to get your dog tot he veterinarian immediately. An exam and x-rays are very diagnostic ofthis condition.

When the presidenteventually made his appearance a little before noon, the large crowd erupted with cheers and applause. B efore he began his speech, the president smiled and told the crowd to take a seat if you have one, because Im going to be talking for a while. The presidents speech began with some light humor, as he told the crowd that he would be finished in time for an NFL kick-off. It also featured moments of audience interaction, with one woman shouting out, I love you, Obama, to which the president replied, I love you, too. How ever, when the president started to dive deeper into his speech, he spoke passionately of Medicare and the space program. W e ve begun an ambitious new direction for NASA by laying the groundwork for 21st Century space flight, and, just last month, witnessed an incredible achievement that speaks to our nations sense of wonder and our can-do the U nited States of America landing Curiosity on Mars, Pr esident Obama said to the cheering crowd, eliciting additional cheers and excitement. This was the presidents 10th time visiting Florida this year, but the first time he has visited the Space C oast in 2012, as well as his first visit to Florida Tech. F lorida Tech is honored that the president of the Un ited States chose to stop on campus, said Wes Sumner, a spokesman for Florida Tech. This is the first time that a U.S. president has been to the university. The world spotlight is shining on Florida Tech. R egarding Medicare, Pr esident Obama told the crowd that he would never turn the program into a v oucher, unlike what he said his opponent Mitt R omney would do. W e ve already added y ears to the life of Medicare by getting rid of taxpayer subsidies to insurance companies that werent making people any healthier and making things more expensive for everybody, Pr esident Obama said.

with the deal, AuthenTec, which specializes in encryption technology, fingerprint sensors and identity management software for mobile devices and computers, has invited shareholders to attend a special meeting to consider and vote upon the potential merger of the two companies Thursday, Oct. 4 at 10 a.m. at the offices of Alston & Bird LLP, 1180 W. P eachtree St., 15th floor, in A tlanta, Ga. A ccording to the company, the $356 million merger cannot be completed until it gets the green light from the majority of AuthenTecs shareholders. The Oct. 4 meeting will include a vote on the merger agreement and approval of the compensation that may become payable to AuthenTe c s named executive officers in connection with the merger. The AuthenTec Board of Dir ectors unanimously recommends that (the shareholders) vote for approval of the proposal to adopt the merger agreement, said Lawrence Ciaccia, chief executive officer of AuthenT ec, in a press release to shareholders. In the release, Mr. Ciaccia emphasized that each vote made by the shareholders is crucial for the potential partnership. (The shareholders) vote is very important, regardless of the number of shares of company stock (he or she) o wns, he said. The failure to vote (their) shares will have the same effect as a vote against the approval of the proposal to adopt the merger agreement. Mr. Ciaccia said shareholders who cannot make the scheduled meeting in A tlanta may submit their vote by accessing the website or mailing their vote to company headquarters. If the transaction is approved by shareholders, A uthenTec will become a wholly owned subsidiary of App le Inc. senior, said, prior to the event, that she was excited to see President Obama speak. I m very interested in health care, Mrs. Olszewski said. I hope everyone votes for him to give him the chance to finish what he started. The president was introduced onstage by Palm Bay r esident Mary French, a r etired member of the FBI, r egistered Republican and supporter of the Obama campaign. Ms. French said she voted for President Obama in 2008 and she believes that, while the country has changed, R epublican views on the issues most important to her have not, including issues involving womens health. O ur president cares about each and every one of y ou, Ms. French said to the crowd. He cares about the middle class. He cares about the economy and jobs. He strives to make equality for all. Ms. French also commended the presidents decision to send U.S. Navy SEALs to Pakistan to kill O sama Bin Laden. The morning of the speech, President Obama visited Ossorio Bakery and C af in Cocoa Village for breakfast. We were given a 20minute notice before he arrived, said Chelsea P atrick, an employee at O ssorio Bakery and Caf. H e was very charming. It didnt feel like you were meeting the president. He was the easiest person to talk to. Ms. Patrick said the day after President Obamas visit, the restaurant was very busy, and customers asked for more information re garding his stop at the caf. Dur ing his visit to the S pace Coast, President Obama also took a few minutes to speak with Brevard C ounty Commissioner R obin Fisher. H e was busy trying to learn everyones concerns, but I was able to whisper in his ear that spaceflight is important to us, and the faster he can get humans up and flying, the faster it will create jobs in the area, C ommissioner Fisher said. This is something we need figured out. Staff writer Meagan Mc Gone contributed to this article.

"Quite frankly, people were getting ripped off," said Mr. Goldfarb, who owns Square Deal Gold Buyers with his partner, JR Bott. "There was a need for a trustworthy goldbuying business in the area." So three years ago, Square Deal Gold Buyers began building its business on trust in the Melbourne Square Mall. "Based on that, we've grown our business tremendously," Mr. Goldfarb said. "All of the trust that we've built over two and a half years has led us to be the No. 1 gold buyer in Brevard County." Now it is located in the Chase building adjacent to the mall, in Suite 102 West of 1990 W. Ne w Haven Ave. "Our concern is some people think we're out of business right now," Mr. Goldfarb said. "We are here with the same great people and the same service." In its new location, Square Deal Gold Buyers ensures safety among its customers with the installation of 14 cameras that monitor all transactions made, as well as a secured entrance to the office itself. To prevent fraud and undervaluing pieces, trained appraisers evaluate karat purities in front of the clients by performing various tests. "We talk to people about their jewelry and its worth," Mr. Goldfarb said. "We will check the exact karat purities and current spot market price. We will explain how the market and process works, w hat types of equipment we use for testing and answer any questions they may have." And when it's decision time, Mr. Goldfarb said there is no pressure. "We do not attempt to pressure our clients to sell, but in fact do our best to educate our clients on the value of their items so they can see why we offer what we do," he said. He said when offering cash for a client's gold, Square Deal Gold Buyers can offer up to 30 percent higher than other, similar businesses. On one occasion, he offered a woman $1,400 for a piece that she was going to sell for $250 to a mail-away cash-for-gold company. "You have some people that try to rip people off and make a living," he said. "Our plan is a cumulative thing. We'd rather have many customers who contribute a little bit each. "We're a for-profit business, but we're local guys," He said. "The money stays in Brevard. W e're not mailing it away. All our employees are from Brevard. It's a really good business model." "This is a professional atmosphere for gold buyers, and we want to expand on that," he said. Square Deal Gold Buyers is open from 9:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. F or more information, visit www.squaredealgold.com or call (321) 821-4947.

The topping out ceremony, which took place on W ednesday, Sept. 5., commemorates the overall completion of the buildings structure, which will honor the shuttle program. Though there is still much work to be accomplished, guests might be able to view the Atlantis space shuttle exhibit as early as July, said Andrea Farmer, public r elations manager for the K ennedy Space Center V isitor Complex. W ith the framework complete, workers tasked with building the shuttles new home will begin enclosing the space, leaving one wall open, so Atlantis can be rolled into the structure on Nov. 2. Then, they will begin constructing the interior of the 90,000square-foot exhibit. On the inside, guests will experience an up-close display of Atlantis, tilted at an intentional 43.21 degrees, as if it were traveling in space, with its payload bay doors open. S urrounding it will be 62 exhibits, including a fullscale mockup of the Hubble S pace Telescope and a fullscale model of a portion of the International Space S tation, according to www.nasa.gov. To complete the structure, it will take 1,400 tons of steel and $100 million. P lease keep in mind that no tax dollars are used to fund the operation, maintenance and development of K ennedy Space Center V isitor Complex, Ms. Far mer said. Proceeds are used from ticket, retail and food sales. S he said that being home to NASAs orbiter is a great honor for the state of F lorida and Brevard County. W e anticipate an increase of 12 percent in attendance once the orbiter home opens, she said. A ccording to the Kennedy S pace Centers website, www.kennedyspacecenter.co m, the exhibit will be the highlight of the Kennedy S pace Center Visitor C omplexs 10-year master plan, proposed by the complexs operator, D elaware North Companies. The plans goal is to tr ansform NASAs Kennedy S pace Center Visitor C omplex into a place where explorers of all ages can tour Americas spaceport to engage with the people and machines that shape the future of our world, according to the website. F or the topping out ceremony, hundreds of workers, as well as Kennedy S pace Center and Kennedy S pace Center Visitor C omplex staff members, signed the final beam before it was added to the structure. Among those signatures was Bob Cabanas, the director of the Kennedy S pace Center. A tlantis, the last space shuttle to ever fly in space, is going to look like it actually is in space here at the Kennedy Space Center, Mr. Cabana said during the ceremony. I cant think of a more fitting place to tell that story. F or more information, visit www.kennedyspacecenter.com.

MELBOURNE Dale V icos wants the public to know that his arm wrestling competition, Guts-NG lory, isnt your everyday bar-room brawl. There is uncanny sportsmanship at my competitions, said Mr. V icos, an arm wrestler for 35 y ears and vice president of the National Power Arm Wr estling Association. This competition is for people of all types. It doesnt matter if y ou have never competed before. No one walks away embarrassed. Mr. Vicos is the organizer and tournament director of the Central Florida Armwrestling Championships, held at Off the Tr axx, 918 E. New Haven Av e. in Historic Downtown M elbourne, Saturday, Sept. 15. The event will include 27 different weight classes and divisions for men and women, including a beginner division, titled Right H and-Novice. No experience is necessary, and the tournament will include a double-elimination. While Mr. Vicos has been conducting arm wrestling tournaments since 1998, he said this event will be the third consecutive arm wrestling competition he has hosted in Brevard C ounty. While training for an arm wrestling competition, Mr. V icos, a 25-year U.S. Air force veteran, said working out in the gym isnt necessarily the only way to prepare. I t s not always people who go to the gym who participate, he said. We have a lot of blue-collar workers who do very well, especially people who are mechanics or work in masonry. Tennis players do very well, too. They have strong forearms. Mr. Vicos said arm wrestling is also 30 percent mental. P eople will get psyched out sometimes. Someone will look (at their opponent), and they will think they cant beat them, he said. You cant go by looks. One time, I had a 14-yearold girl, who weighed 115 pounds beat a 360-pound woman in her 20s. Mr. Vicos said he hopes to also feature a Battle of the B adge competition, featuring firefighters versus police officers. Any badge-wearing professional in the field of firefighting, law enforcement, prison guard, either civilian or military will be allowed to compete, he said. The event will also feature a few special guests, including Dann Carr, creator of the television series American Gladiators, who is a two-time world and five-time national-arm wrestling champion in the 1970s, Mr. Vicos said. Mr. Carr is known as A pache Dann in the arm wrestling world. Mr. Vicos said there will also be professional wrestlers from the Team 3D Pr ofessional Wrestling A cademy located in Kissimmee in attendance. R egistration and weighins are from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The tournament begins at 2:30 p.m., is $15 and co-ed couples registration is $20 total. Registration ends at 1:30 p.m. Ages in the competition include 16 and older. Anyone younger than 18 must have parental consent. R egistration for the B attle of the Badge competition is $5.

Lt. Brey said the victims we re most likely unaware that Mr. Woodward was outside, while they were y elling insults in the direction of his home. S hortly after, Mr. Woodward gunned down Mr. H embree in his own yard on Smith Drive in T itusville. The other two victims fled to the next yard over. Mr. Woodward then followed the men and shot them, as well. Lt. Brey said Mr. Woodward, a Gulf War veteran, claimed he suffered from post traumatic stress disorder. I believe that is probably the case, Lt. Brey said. There may have been some kind of brain trauma, as a result of his time in the army. P olice have responded in the past to ongoing disputes between Mr. Hembree and Mr. Woodward, Lt. Brey said. P alm Bay Police also r eported two shootings ov er the holiday weekend. J ust before 10 a.m. on S unday, Sept. 2, witnesses r eported seeing James A.

At the time of the shooting, the v an was parked next door in the SunTrust bank parking lot. F ollowing the shooting, the driver of the van, who has not yet been identified, drove away. Mr. Burgman then placed the gun in a nearby trash can, police said. M r. Bur gman is claiming to have been robbed of $600 cash and stands by his claim to have disarmed one of the subjects in the v an, said Yvonne Martinez, public information coordinator at City of Palm Bay. As of press time, police we re still trying to determine who was in the van at the time of the shooting and if any injuries were sustained. In another incident later that evening, Palm B ay Police reported that 22-year-old Brandon Jones of Palm Bay was shot to death Sunday evening near the intersection of F lorida Avenue and Washington Street.

Unr eal. They cant sign their names, some of them. They cant r ead the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, the Constitution. Perhaps that is the plan? They dont want kids to read their history. They also no longer teach typing, which is also unreal. K ids use computers left and right, yet they mostly hunt and peck, as typing skills are not taught in our high schools, nor elementary or middle schools. Why? The things that provided me survival skills out of high school were cursive writing, typing and consumer math, which is also not taught. In consumer math, I learned to amortize a loan, balance a check book, trade stocks, read a stock chart and much more things I have done throughout my life, since graduating in 1967 from high school. Br evard Public Schools should be ashamed. I have taught my son cursive writing. I have taught my son typing or keyboarding skills, so he no longer hunts and pecks. I have taught my son consumer math skills, as well as algebra, geometry, calculus and trigonometry. Yes, together we learned or relearned them all. What he uses all the time is the consumer math skills. Now is the time for the School Board to wake up and teach skills that carry kids through life, not just out the door at the end of the school year. We are missing the boat in our schools, big time.V oter fraud, business community and citizen direct democracyB lackboxvoting.org is Americas watchdog election group, founded by Bev Harris; who, in 2000, came to Florida, dumpster diving into Supervisor of Elections dumpsters after resultsevidence and spread sheets. What she found was results altering taking place. She also discovered that Diebold, a Republican-owned electronic accounting system companyclosely tied to the BANKS, o wned the electronic voting systems. There are three to four such companies in the national voter accounting system, and the word is Diebold secretly o wns 90 percent of these systems under differentcompany names,all whichcan be result altered in many ways and stages. F or the past 15 years since Lawton Chiles died in office, theRepublican businesscommunity has dominated every level of representative government in Florida,except the U.S. Senate, until (Mel) Martinez was elected, and now (Mario) Rubio. I personally am fed-up with Republican-style government, what representative government is and the wealthy business community, who,with bribes and law firm lobbyist puppet-mastering, have everything their way. The money, power and wealthy all end up with the wellconnected few; and the average citizens gets to be fleeced as a consumer and taxpayer or entirely left out of the money loop facing what poverty has to offer. My choice of changewould be bust-up this kleptocratic r epublic combination of wealthy elites and stooge lawmakers lining their pockets first in priority, or better yet outlaw the two forms of capitalism and representative government. I would prefer to have real true citizen direct democracy, where the citizens directly rule and control over money, business and government. If you go vote in November and arent happy that representative government has been bribed or paid off to keep up the fleecing of citizens, then vote to fire that lawmaker. FCAT is a joke we cant do anything aboutA 70-year-old man wrote in about the FCAT and how absolutely sickening it is. I say kudos! I have a 7and 12-year-old. My 7-year-old begins third grade this year; and when I asked her if she was excited that summer is just about over and she will be an official thirdgrader, her response threw me off. She said I am scared, M ommy. I asked her why, and she said Because I have to take FCATS this time and theyre hard, and the teachers get all mean. My heart sank. The truth is, the kids are pressured, teachers are stressed and schools, even the best, see dollar Agoraphobia fearI suffer with something called agoraphobia. It is a psychological response from having had severe trauma in my life two family members murdered in two separate homicides, r ape, robbery and I could go on. Agoraphobia is the fear of leaving ones home or safe place. There is no precise medical treatment other than those r elative to depression/post traumatic stress syndrome. I am not able to leave my home to go the grocery store, doctor appointments and to carry on with necessities outside my house, also known as life. S o-called friends and neighbors seem to think I choose to stay in. This is not my choice. Id give my right arm just to be normal and just to walk out my door. Why would anyone choose to live in such insanity? N eighbors and so-called friends dont think to call to see if I need anything at the store when they go to shop. When I call them to ask for that kind of help, almost always something is going on with them that they cannot help me. If and when I ever recover from this agoraphobia, I pray that Ill be tuned in to help others who are neglected and misunderstood.Playing the lotteryI am calling about all the lottery players out there. My r ant is about people standing in line at a courtesy center at a grocery store just to check their lottery tickets. I tell them there is a machine right in front of them that does the same thing the clerk does. It checks your lottery numbers. I nstead of wasting the clerks time and the time of the people standing in line behind you waiting to ask a question or to buy something, use the machine, buy a paper or use the internet to find out if your number won. Thats all I have to say. Im a lottery player myself. The clerks usually have printouts of the winning numbers on the counters, too.Defense budget cutsC utting the defense budget would solve many problems. Those Bained never to be employed again people, due to age/experience/wages, could be supported until ready for Social Security. F unding for Medicare, especially if insurance companies we re taken out of Medicare, could be funded. Same for S ocial Security. Also, the best benefit, the United States of America could not go to useless wars, like Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan, etc. No more would we be the Foreign Legion of the world, wasting our resources. They could even build useful things, like schools, roads, bridges, parks, etc., like the WPA did in the 1930s. As an example, the high school my wife went to was built in 1935 and is still in use. Does any weapon system or other gear last? They are still pouring millions into the failed Star W ars system. Why? F our hundred eighty-seven billion would at least set us on the road back from some of the military/industrial welfare insanity.

C allers are asked to refrain from making slanderous statements.Statements of fact will be checked for accuracy. Letters to the EditorLonesome George and the Indian RiverD ear Editor: Any dire prediction that something will soon v anish, such as without protection and care, the I ndian River Lagoon will quickly be gone, often has little or no impact beyond a dedicated few. U nfortunately, a dedicated few, regardless of how exhaustive and admirable their efforts, are too often ineffective. H abitually, those who should listen and join preventive actions too often think the problem is ov er-stated, politically motivated or that something will be done by someone to prevent the disaster. Ive recently returned from the Galapagos I slands. There, I met Lonesome George of Pinta Island. He represented one of the 11 remaining r aces of the Galapagos G iant Tortoise (Geochelone elephantopus abingdoni). W ith millions of tortoises in the world, what made Lonesome George special? Well, he was a giant tortoise, he was in the G alapagos, and while both make him special, theres something else that made him not only extraordinary, but also terribly tragic. G eorge, found in 1971, was the last Pinta Island tortoise. There have been 41 years to study George, propose solutions, find alternatives and make plans. The result was simply that there are no more of his species. N one. There is no recovery; no last minute reprieves, there is nothing anyone can do. This is the ultimate finality. When he died, his entire race was dead. Ye s, there are other tortoises, terrapins, turtles and other shelled animals. Ye s, there are any number of places we can go to see them, catch them or make them road kill. One could say then that when Lonesome George passed, it made little difference. And, after all, he may have lived more than 100 years. But when one actually saw him, understanding that when he died there were no others left and nothing could be done to prevent his death, the fact that there are other types of tortoises means little. There was nothing abstract, overstated or political about this death it was absolute, forever. As it is with the Indian River Lagoon. I never want it said, We had more than 40 years to take action, but when one saw the lagoon, understood that when it died there was nothing left and now nothing can be done to prevent this death, the fact that there are other rivers, lagoons, lakes and oceans means little. Ye s, the Indian River Lagoon is large; yes, it is full of fish, and yes, it is in trouble. We have known the trouble for years. The trouble is not something new, discovered just in 2012. F or example, in 2001, the F ish & Wildlife Research I nstitute collected 935 fish, r epresenting 42 species, in the Indian River. R eports indicated at least one fish from 14 different species had unsafe mercury levels. Eleven species showed mercury levels so high that women of childbearing age and y oung children should eat them no more than once a month. Leading reasons attributed to this pollution of our cherished lagoon include r unoff from lawns, gardens, fertilizer, faulty storm drains and pollution spewed from industry. Fur ther, this study did not discuss red tides, brown tides, fish kills and sick dolphins. All that said, we simply are not taking care of our most valuable natural r esource; we are not taking care of ourselves. I have heard that we r eally dont have to do anything to save the Indian River Lagoon; nature is cyclic and it will take care of its self. Ive heard that theres plenty of time to study, years and years ahead to solve the problems if there are problems. Ive heard that the problems and any possible solutions are somehow tied to politics, economics or personal interests. We must take action now, if it is already not too late, See LETTERS, A7 Published weekly by Hometown News, L.C., 50 59 Tu rnpike Feeder Road, Ft.

www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, September 14, 2012 Melbourne A7 Holy Trinity Episcopal Academys Upper School, known for its academic and athletic rigor, also offers a course for budding entrepreneurs. Taught by P aul Suchoski, a retired entrepreneur, whose background is in the technology sector, the class is available to sophomores, juniors and seniors. Its Suchoskis third y ear teaching the intimate class (he keeps enrollment to about 15 students). Prior to this v olunteer teaching position, he was an early employee at JDS Uniphase, a high-tech communications company and served as CEO of Optium, an Orlandobased firm that focuses on fiber optics. After several speaking engagements at the school and launching an entrepreneurship club four years ago, Headmaster Cathy Ford approached him about a more regular position. Suchoski, a father of two Holy Trinity graduates and one currently enrolled as a senior, admits to being nervous at first, but says teaching the class is the most fun Ive ever had at work. Students are responsible for two projects each quarter, including an elevator speech (a 30second pitch as to why they should be admitted to their college of choice); an idea for a business that would succeed in a school environment; a business idea for their hometown market; and a financial analysis of two competitive companies (such as Coke and Pepsi). The class seems to stick with his students: He frequently gets call from Holy Trinity graduates, who have great ideas for new products and businesses. F or Hometown NewsCalling all aspiring entrepreneurs! to save the lagoon. No problems? Lots of water? An abundance of fish? Plenty of time? Its only a cycle just wait?

I do agree that parents are not as involved with their children and their studies as they should be. I do not agree with your statement, Dont touch my child when they misbehave in school, It is part of the problem. I dont put my hands on my children. Why in the world would I allow anyone else to? Children have a lot of r ights that you, considering y our age, did not have growing up. My children are honor students, the youngest is in the Gifted Student Program, and my oldest was accepted into a Science and Technology Choice Program. It takes an involved parent and open relationships with them, as well as their educators. We dont have to smack their hands with r ulers or take away their r ights. FCAT is a joke. It stresses everyone out, and Im sure the people who made the test couldnt pass it themselves. U nfortunately, we cant do anything about it. We prepare them the best we can and wait all summer to get the scores. S ad, but true. Gay marriage in BostonWhen Chick-fil-A owner D an Cathy defendedhis companys support of the B iblical definition of the family unit, Boston mayor M enino and other progressive liberals who championgay marriage, advocated a ban on further Chick-fil-A restaurants in B oston. Is n t it amazing that liberals can have an opinion, but Conservatives cannot? Liberal hypocrisy abounds when mayor M enino was at a ribbon cutting a for city-subsidized mosque that teaches death to gays. The mayor also effectively gave away city land valued at $1.8 million to the I slamic Society of Bostons mosque, and then gave a speech at the ribboncutting ceremony. Does the May or support the Muslim teaching, death to gays? We ll, since it doesnt sound like Muslims are opposed to gay marriage, I guess that Menino has no r eason to keep them out. Ca n you spell hypocrite? Sure, M-e-n-i-n-o. The Biblicalend of daysmust surely be approaching quickly.Cut the budgets nowWhat do the following have in common: millage r ate increases, property v alue rollback, previous cr itical school board, 25 percent sales tax requirement, current critical .50 percent sales tax requirement? The above have resulted in higher property tax bills. After last years increases we re passed by the county commissioners, county manager and school board, they found $1 million for beach sand, and have transferred more than $25 million in tax collections to re serve accounts. If th ey had $26 million unaccounted for, why did they all vote on raising our property taxes? A ccording to the proposed school budget, there is a surplus of more than $77 million. The taxpayers have cut corners to pay their housing, food and higher taxes ov er the past three years.

Adv ances made by these companies, under newlysigned Space Act agreements, through the agencys C ommercial Crew Integrated C apability initiative, are intended to ultimately lead to the availability of commercial human space flight services for government and commercial customers. While NASA works with U.S. industry partners to develop commercial space flight capabilities to low Earth orbit, the agency also is developing the Orion MultiP urpose Crew Vehicle and the Space Launch System, a crew capsule and heavy-lift rocket to provide an entirely new capability for human exploration. D esigned to be flexible for launching spacecraft for crew and cargo missions, SLS and Orion MPCV will expand human presence beyond low Earth orbit and enable new missions of exploration across the solar system.

On a high school senior trip, she saw the first man to walk on the moon at the American Embassy in W arsaw, Poland; and I saw the event in the dayroom of the U.S. Air Force barracks at Biggs Field in Ft. Bliss, T exas. It was 1969. She and her high school group were led into a room at the embassy in Warsaw and sat in chairs in front of a small, blackand-white television, while hundreds of Polish people walked through doors at the back of the room in an almost endless procession, viewing the event as they walked by. I was called to the barr acks dayroom for another r eason and was able to watch the event at the same time in Texas. One could see the moon shining through the windows of the dayr oom. We both remember those famous words: One small step for man, and one giant leap for mankind. We discovered later that was not exactly what Neil Armstrong was supposed to say, but it was right at the time and good enough for us. It made us proud to be Americans. N eil Armstrong died last month, and we will miss that great American hero, even though there were documents and movies that suggested that America did not actually land on the moon in 1969, at all. H istory, now, of course, has dismissed that myth. Another American hero we will miss, even though he is still alive, is Lance Armstrong. As a bicyclist, Lance Armstrong won numerous T our de France honors and titles. He won them under several banners, including that of the banner of the U.S. Postal Service. At first, some of my Postal Ser vice friends thought that supporting and financing a T our de France bicyclist was a waste of Postal Service time and money, but most came around and accepted that it was good for the image of the Postal Service and the U.S. in the world. Now, even though Tour de Fr ance bicyclists were, and currently are, tested for performance-enhancing drugs, charges have supposedly been brought against American hero Lance Armstrong for the alleged use of drugs during his Tour de France days, based on old evidence that may have been compromised or mis-handled over the years. To strip Lance Armstrong of his Tour de France titles because of this and someones testimony of their beliefs now is like giving credit to the movie business for creating the doubt that we never actually landed on the moon. To take away something someone has already earned under the existing r ules of the time would be like taking away Eagle Scout badges, NBA championships and, in this case, T our de France medals. Lance Armstrong, riding with a disability for America, won the Tour de France at least seven times. If someone doesnt like that after the fact that is too bad. Let our heroes remain heroes.

This problem can occur in any size pooch, but is seen more often in large breed dogs, such as Mastiffs, Great Danes, etc. This syndrome can make a very healthy dog become sick and this may even become fatal very quickly. Some ofthe risk factors include one large meal per day or eating very quickly and then exercising after a large meal. Once the stomach turns, it starts to blow up (bloat) and circulation to the stomach and spleen are cut off. Symptoms include nausea and retching, a distended abdomen, and lots of a bdominal pain. They can also show signs ofanxiety which include drooling, pacing, and r estlessness. T his is an emergency situation and you need to get your dog tot he veterinarian immediately. An exam and x-rays are very diagnostic ofthis condition. Please call your v eterinarian for further guidance and information.
