Andy Stefanek/staff photographerLiam Wagner, 2, of Micco gives Santa, a.k.a. Larry Porter of Melbourne, a big hug at the South Mainland Community Center. Santa made a visit to Micco to have cookies and take photos with children Monday, Dec. 10. A holiday tradition, more than a decade in the makingBREVARD In delicately wrapped packages, cookies of all kinds have been spreading joy to homes and offices throughout Brev ard. S nickerdoodles, rum balls, peanut butter blossoms and chocolate covered cherry cookies are just a few of the treats responsible for satisfying sweet tooths and filling hungry tummies near the holidays. The perpetrator behind it all lives in M elbourne Beach. H er name is Liz Cassella, a Melbourne business owner and cooking extraordinaire. Mrs. Cassella, who baked cookies near Christmastime with her grandmother as a child, started a holiday tradition called Cookie D ay more than a decade ago. In just one day, Mrs. C assella bakes more than 1,000 cookies to be distributed to friends, families and coworkers to spread the holiday cheer. Each y ear, Cookie Day becomes a holiday event in and of itself. This year, we baked 1,242 cookies, she said. I remember BREVARD Brevard C ounty proved to be a leading county for innovative businesses in Florida, as three representatives from the county took home 2012 Governors Innovators in Business awards at the Governors mansion in T allahassee on Monday, De c. 10. Embraer, AAR Airlift Group and local business leader Travis Proctor were each recognized with the Governors Innovators in B usiness award, which recognizes businesses that contribute to improving F loridas economy and community investment efforts, the Economic De velopment Commission of Floridas Space Coast said in a press release. Mr. Proctor is the CEO of ndtArtemis, a Brevardbased information technology company. Each of the three were r ecognized in different categories during the ceremony: Embraer Executive Aircraft Inc. was awarded the Governors Business E xpansion Award; AAR Airlift Group Inc. was awarded the Governors Newcomer A ward; and ndtArtemis CEO Travis Proctor was r ecognized as an innovator under 40. The Florida Innovators U nder 40 Award is a newly added recognition. The award is based on job-creation records, business achievements and community involvement.

At the moment, nothing is in a fast manner. Mrs. Malfara is accustomed to difficulties at this point in her life: 11 years ago, she created The M.O.R.G.A.N.

Morgan is diagnosed with Leukodystrophy, an infliction which can lead to a gradual decline in body tone, movements, speech, ability to eat, vision and behavior. W ith The M.O.R.G.A.N Pr oject, Mrs. Malfara and her husband, Robert, first started offering equipment, such as care seats and other items that insurance companies do not always cover, to parent of children with special needs.

BREVARD In continuance with a commitment of making Brevard County beaches safer, Brevard C ounty Ocean Rescue unveiled two new lifeguard towers on Wednesday, Dec. 12. The two new towers, which are located at the C ocoa Beach Pier and at S hepherds Park in Cocoa B each, are part of a proposed construction of four budgeted lifeguard towers, O cean Rescue Chief Jeff Scabarozi said. W e are happy to unveil the new towers. Its a positive image for people to actually see a lifeguard tower, Chief Scabarozi said. We are trying to build the other two in the spring. With turtle season approaching, we hope to get the other two built before then. Chief Scabarozi said the building materials need to create each tower cost about $5,000 each. Construction of the towers is completed at no cost to taxpayers by workers at the Brevard C ounty Sheriffs Work Farm, Chief Scabarozi said. Once completed, Chief Scaborozi said the two news towers were delivered from the work farm and set up at their locations with assistance from Brevard County R oad and Bridge. In a press release, Chief Scabarozi said the new towers allows for better visibility for lifeguards. C ocoa Beach is one of the busiest stretches of coastline that we protect, he said. We want our guests to swim near lifeguards, and, with these new towers, it is much easier to locate lifeguards on the crowded beach. V isibility for our lifeguards has also been improved. Its truly a win-win. Chief Scabarozi said the two towers, which will be constructed in the spring, will be located at Lori Wilson Pa rk and the Minuteman Causeway, both of which are in Cocoa B each. After the completion of the two additional towers in the spring, Chief Scabarozi said he hopes to see another tower located at Par adise Beach in I ndialantic.

So 11 years ago, I started a C ookie Day of my own. So what does it take to make more than 1,000 cookies in a single day? A lot of butter, sugar, flour and helping hands. Each year, Mrs. Cassella has friends and family who offer assistance in the kitchen. From taste-testing the most desirable job to ov erseeing the oven, Cookie D ay accomplices are essential to the success of the day. The most important helper is someone who rolls all the cookies, Mrs. Cassella said. Cookie Day would not be possible without a r oller. In addition to the labor, Mrs. Cassella said preparation for the day is crucial. This year, she gathered 18 pounds of flour, 24 sticks of butter and 11 pounds of sugar, among many other supplies. The end result is, of course, an abundance of cookies, as well as many delighted recipients, who are thankful for Mrs. Cassellas enthusiasm for the holidays, which comes in the form of the delicious treats. Liz pours so much into Co okie Day each year, said her friend and fellow Cookie D ay participant, Bonney Ko o. I t s really a testament to her character. She is such generous person with a big heart, and she has been keeping our bellies satisfied and full of cookies for many y ears. Mrs. Cassella said she hopes to see her three children share the tradition with their families for many years to come, which means the C assella family has a lot of butter, sugar and flour in its future. I keep thinking each year, Am I crazy for doing this? Mrs. C assella said. But I couldnt imagine a holiday season without Cookie Day. And those close to Mrs. C assella dont want to, either.CookiesF rom page A1 Lien Koo, Bonney Koo and Liz Cassella take a break from baking to pose for a picture at Mrs. Cassellas house in Melbourne Beach.

Whether its our skilled workforce, pro-business government or outstanding quality of life, the S pace Coast is a dynamic place to do business and a place that is deserving of its r ising profile in the U.S. and beyond.

Rick Scott said the state of F loridas economy is because of the innovative businesses that this award reco gnizes. W e are so happy and proud to announce another fantastic group of award winners, Gov. Scott said.

special needs, Mrs. Malfara said she stumbled upon a therapy used in the Netherlands for people with autism or developmental disabilities called Snoezelen. S noezelen therapy places an individual in a soothing and stimulating environment known as a Snoezelen ro om. Using lighting effects, colors and sounds, the person in the room is stimulated by various forms of wireless interaction. After discovering this form of therapy, Mrs. Malfara was determined to bring Snoezelen to Brevard C ounty, and, earlier this y ear, she opened Morgans P lace in Melbourne Beach. Snoezelen is a sensorybased and wireless therapy, she said. You can make a light beam activate and other (sounds and visuals) through different ways (depending on the individual). How ever, despite the new facility offering an alternative to play areas for children with special needs finally being opened, Mrs. M alfara said she quickly r ealized that there just was not enough space for the activities the children she helps required. When we built the facility, we had enough room for one-on-one care, where we can help someone physically get out of a wheelchair (and interact with the ro om), she said. We didnt build it for ones to run around. It was for gentle use. So we set our sites to find something a little bigger. L uckily, Mrs. Malfara found the perfect facility in Melbourne to expand her Snoezelen therapy, and, if all goes according to schedule, broken leg and all, the new facility will open by January. Mor gans Place accepts children with special needs from any location by appointment only. Despite how interesting and fun the facility may seem for siblings to the child with special needs, Mrs. Malfara said the facility is only for children with special needs. Now, with the new facility becoming a reality, and her organization still helping children with special needs from areas throughout central Florida, Mrs. Malfara intends to rest and mend her broken leg. Things are kind of stalled at the moment, she said. All you really can do is keep a sense of humor about the whole thing. The new Morgans Place will be located at 4241 N. U.S. 1 in Melbourne.

What I did experience on my last trip in 1975 was a line of demarcation in south Texas, witnessed by a strong use of S panish and little interest in speaking English in restaurants, service stations or even giving directions. S hould the 911 operator be chastised for not understanding S panish, or should arrogance be rewarded?Neighbors helping neighborsI would like to know what has happened to neighbors helping neighbors. I just recently had surgery and have been struggling to deal with the use of my dominant hand. Now, I have injured my knee, and I can hardly walk. So I now have a brace on one arm and one leg. My neighbors were outside, and I am struggling to take my garbage and recyclables out. I asked the neighbors for help, but that doesnt seem right. They should volunteer to help without being asked. It is sometimes humiliating to ask for help. I am just curious to know why neighbors dont seem to want to help people anymore.Why we said NO to tax increaseIn 1972, the Brevard school district had about 70,000 students. It added portables,as space programs increased. When the Apollo and other programs ended, the student population dropped about half. By 1980, schools were closed, and portable classrooms were r emoved. The shuttle started up, and the student population went back to about 72,000. The Brevard Commissioners and School B oard approved new schools and put portables back in place. By 2000, Brevard knew the shuttle would end, yet the county and school board continued building and replacing the portables with expensive additions. Now we have a multi-million debt for 25 years and empty seats. If the commissioners and School Board kept the portables, we may not be facing school closures. Deserving the benefits?I was talking to a representative who works for Social S ecurity, and I was very shocked when he said there are more than 50 million people, who receive Social Security benefits. I know for a fact that there is a man, who is living in Sweden, y et he is getting these benefits here in America. I am also sure that many who get these benefits dont even deserve them. I am a born American and now am disabled, and they made it very hard for me to get these benefits; and yet, many come to this country and get it at a snap of a finger. They use a false ID, or a family member, who is already living here will help them with their own ID. There is a family right here in Florida. Each family member re ceives these benefits and also gets food stamps, and they come to a soup kitchen and make trouble there. In my opinion, they dont even need to come to this soup kitchen. It is very sad to see what this great country has come to. S ince there are too many people on this and not enough workers, it is very difficult for them to check on all those who get these benefits. It is time for some type of change. Editors note: The official Social Security Administration website,www.ssa.gov,states that approximately 57 million people in the United States received Social Security benefits during October 2012.This number includes approximately 40 million people,age 65 or older;more than 14 million disabled, under age 65,including children receiving Supplemental S ecurity Income on the basis of their own disability;and more than 7 million beneficiaries,who are neither aged nor disabled (for example:early retirees and young survivors).The total percentage of people receiving Social Security benefits in October 2012 in the United States was about 18 percent of the population.Note:Some recipients (about 5,000) are receiving both Social Security and SSI and are only counted once in the 57 million.Could not see the paradeI am writing to express my disappointment and disgust in some of the residents in my city. I am an 80-year-old woman. I attended the parade and sat on a chair on the curb, as many other people did. As the parade began, many children, teenagers and adults broke away from the curb and stood in the street about a foot away from the moving floats, thus blocking the view of the parade from us on the curb. N ot only did I see this (as) dangerous for the little ones trying to get the candy being thrown from the floats, I saw the many rude and thoughtless people we have in our city. I wonder if candy is that important. The police did nothing to keep people back, as they have in previous years. I could not tell who or what was riding or moving in the parade.Education cuts on the ballotIt amazes me that the people, who are actually admitting that if they had known the education cuts would have affected them directly, would have voted for it. So in other words, they voted against it on the assumption someone else would be impacted.Unbelievable. As far as Im concerned, anyone who voted against it should not be allowed to protest, petition, criticize or complain about any of the proposals being made. And then to blame the school board for not being specific about where the cuts would be made, take responsibility for y ou own actions. Thats a lesson todays youth needs to learn.Soldiers and the $1 billIt is difficult for me to believe this, but this morning I learned that the U.S. Army is considering punishing a soldier if he attempts suicide. What great mind thought that one up? Are they planning to punish him for not succeeding? Those poor men are going through hell, so some politician or general can sit on their duff and propose insane things like that. Another thing our great minds are proposing is doing away with the $1 bill. Thats sounds like collusion between our Congress, the Wall Str eet scum and the credit card companies, also probably the metal-mining interests. They have already taken (away) the incentive about saving at a bank.Ta lking about peoples drivingThe other day, we had a gas leak on Highway A1A, and all the traffic had to go into one lane. Ev eryone was being pretty patient, except for one woman in the right lane, who went whipping by very quickly and tried to cut me off and wouldnt let me over. And, as we were driving, we had to drive around. She never gave a signal and made a u-turn, because she was very impatient. S he had a lot of religious stickers on the back of her car. I wont name the church, but it is a large local church. And I thought, Is that her religion that she gave me the finger twice, because she had to make a u-turn, because she was impatient and could not wait? I think people should learn a little patience with traffic. You are not going to get anywhere quicker by cutting your car in front of somebody. P atience is a virtue.Put up your made in the U.S.A. flagsI am one of these people who try really hard to buy made in the U.S.A. products. I was looking for flags the other day, and I finally found some that were made here, as opposed to overseas. The other thing, as I was coming into Cocoa Village, I saw a sign that said Made in America by Native Americans. This is a wonderful idea. I am glad to see that people are promoting this. M aybe if other shops put a sign out that they had Made in the U.S.A. goods, they would get some business.Why have the rates gone up?There have been no hurricanes to hit Florida and cause any damage in the last seven years. So why was my insurance raised twice as much as it was last year; and last year, it was raised twice as much as it was the year before that? I cant understand it. They are making so much money. They doubled my insurance. What they really want is for me to take less coverage, so they have to pay out less when they are making all this money. The ones up in New York have to payout something. Sure, but why should we have to payout anything? They call us the hurricane state. We havent had a hurricane for a long time. Look at Louisiana and New York. They should be called the hurricane states, not us. This is about the Postal ServiceM aybe they should stop mail service on Saturday. It wont solve all their problems, but it will help. A lot of us dont have email, googily goo, and tweet and T witter and that sort of stuff. Im 82. We dont want the United Parcel Service delivering our mail.Its not the pool industryThis is in response to being ripped off in the swimming pool industry. As a pool repair company, myself, we were quite angry about the new standards, having to put in new, variable-speed pumps and all this other stuff. B ut, they rescinded that. So, it is only if you have new construction that you have to put in those variable-speed pumps or two-speed pumps. The only time in an existing pool is if the pool is worth a certain percent of the worth of your home. And replacing a pump is never within that standard. So whoever sold you that bill of goods that required you to purchase the new pump, and you were a homeowner with an existing pool, you did get ripped off. It is not the swimming pool industry that is ripping you off. It is the stupid statutes and the Florida Legislature.They have run away with our airwaysI wonder if there is anyone who can remember when radio and television were in their infancies. When we were told that the airways belonged to the people, when broadcasters could only lease the airways. There were heavy limitation put on broadcasters that they could only put 60 seconds of advertising at the beginning and end of an hour. No profanity. No lewdness. Their broadcast license could be re voked if they didnt follow that law. They have nibbled away at the publics ownership, that now y ou have 20 minutes of program time, and the rest is advertising. And 90 percent of the advertising is devoted to misleading tidbits that feed from one topic to another. So you find it difficult to separate them, visually or verbally.A lesson in EnglishI saw, the other day, both on TV and in a newspaper an incident where there was an emergency, and the caller to 911 could not speak English. There seemed to be an attempt to show the shortcomings of our 911 Emergency System. B oth articles seemed to imply that the 911 operator was at fault for not speaking Spanish. No doubt, the do-gooders will want the operator replaced by a bi-lingual person, and all future hires to be bi-lingual. Ne ver mind that the caller was probably an illegal. I spent a lot of time in Mexico in 1946, 1947 and again on sabbatical in 1975. In those time frames, I experienced no attempts by the M exican government, at any level, to accommodate me by them speaking English. I wasnt arrogant enough to expect it, and the Mexican natives I interacted with all enjoyed our attempts to exchange VIEWPOINTFRIDAY, DEC. 21, 2012 HOMETOWN NEWS WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM W eve been good girls,Santa!Shelby Hill of Indialantic, Lauren Walsh of West Melbourne and Amanda McCauglin of Indialantic tell Santa, Will Davis of Suntree, why theyve been good girls this year at the Junior League of South Brevards Festival of Trees at the Viera Regional Community Center Saturday, Nov. 17.Andy Stefanek staff photographer Got something to say?

Based on a true story, the play tells the heartwarming tale of 8year-old Virginia OHanlon, who wrote a letter to the New York Sun newspaper in 1897, inquiring about the existence of Santa Claus. The performance was made possible through a local grant from Macys to assist with production costs. In celebration of the f ifth anniversary of Macys holiday Believe campaign, the retailer is bringing the animated special to life on school stages across the country. Macys has made the script and score for Y es, Vir ginia, The Musical av ailable royalty-free to all schools and has created a free, digital toolkit on yesvirginiamusical.com. Additionally, Macys introduced a grant opportunity to help schools stage productions of Y es, Vir ginia, The Musical and aw arded a total of $100,000 for 100 schools across the country. Holy T rinity was one of the recipients of a $1,000 Macys grant. Lucia Ernewein, the schools music teacher, w as thrilled to give her students this experience in musical theater as well as a history lesson about the time in which the musical is set. She used the grant funds to purchase sets, props, costumes and to enhance the schools sound systems for the performances. Ernewein chose 36 third-grade students to take on this project because there is so much talent at this grade level.

BREVARD With its more than 120-miles of navigable waterways on the I ndian River, Banana River and the Mosquito Lagoon, Br evard County has more boating opportunities than many states, and the statistics bear it out: Nearly 40,000 boats are r egistered annually. The Indian River Lagoon generates $630 million a y ear in income to local r esidents. Untold thousands of transient boats pass through Space Coast waters annually. And all of that boating activity also leads to another fact: The county is pestered by a problem that is just as persistent as barnacles derelict vessels. Since 2006, when we began the recovery program, weve removed approximately 150 derelict boats, said Matt Culver, boating and waterways program coordinator for the Br evard County Natural R esources Management Office. C urrently, the department is about halfway through its latest phase of the removal plan, which includes 20 boats, and should be wrapped up with the final boats in the current cycle by the end of the year, Mr. C ulver said. Y et, even when were finished with this funding cycle, there are still approximately 16 derelict boats out on our waterways that Im aware of, and Im sure that before we can get rid of them, theyll be others, he said. Its a problem that just keeps on growing. Mr. Culver explained that numerous factors lead to the problematic vessels. F irst, among them is the sheer number of boats and boating activity. W e have nearly 40,000 legally registered boats, plus numerous unregistered boats and literally untold thousands and thousands of boats that transit our waters each year, he said. and, while most of these boats are safe and secure, there are many that are not. All it takes is one storm and boats that are not secured properly are blown up on shore, Mr. Culver said. If its going to cost the o wner more to get the boat r emoved and fixed than its worth, they walk away. The ability to walk away from a vessel that should be legally registered has become the hub of the problem, which consequently, impacts the taxpayers of Brevard. This phase of boat r emoval costs $42,500, the latest chunk of the nearly $250,000 spent on the r otting hulks that endanger sea life and other boats, Mr. C ulver said. H alf of that money comes from yearly grants from the F lorida Inland Navigation D istrict, and the other half comes from Brevard www.HometownNewsOL.com F riday, December 21, 2012 Melbourne A9 048423 4541 N.

tion/NoticestoNavigation.a spx.WEDN ESDAY, DEC. 26 Winter camps scheduled at five locations: Br evard County Parks & R ecreation will host Winter Br eak Camp during the holiday break this year. W inter Camp is for children currently in kindergarten through sixth grade (ages 5-12). C amp will be offered at five locations in the south area: Viera Regional C ommunity Center, 2300 J udge Fran Jamieson Way, V iera Max K. Rodes Park, 3410 Fl anagan Ave., West M elbourne Ted Whitlock C ommunity Center, 1951 M alabar Road N.W., Palm Bay South Beach C ommunity Center, 501 O ld Florida Trail, M elbourne Beach South Mainland C ommunity Center, 3700 Allen Ave., Micco. The dates for camp are De c. 26-28, Dec. 31, Jan. 24 and Jan. 7. A ctivities at Winter Camp include sports, group activities, games and arts and crafts. R egistration for all camps is currently underway at each individual camp location. R egistration can also be completed at the South Area Parks Operations Office, 1515 Sarno Road, B uilding A, Melbourne. The fee for each week is $60 per child or $20 per day per child. Before and after care is available for an additional cost. F or more information, call the South Area Parks and Recreation Office at (321) 255-4400 or visit www.brevardcounty.us/Par ksSouth. C ountys share of the boating registration funds. C learly, if the boats were r egistered properly, we would be able to find the o wners and they would be liable for the cleanup and r emoval fees, Mr. Culver said. But, what happens is someone will sell a boat to a friend. Then, before that person registers the boat, he sells it to someone else, and before too long, the paper trail is gone. Then, there are also the transient boats that just end up in Brevard Countys waterways. All it takes is a storm to crop up, and weve got problems, Mr. Culver said. M ost of the boats were r emoving right now were driven aground during a noname storm that hit in O ctober of 2011. Of all the boats his staff has removed, it has only been able to locate the o wners of five or six of them, Mr. Culver said. I n a couple of cases, the o wners have payment plans and are slowly paying off the r emoval fee, he said. But, clearly thats the minority of cases. To help limit that problem, Mr. Culver said his office is working closely with Florida Fish and W ildlife officers and Brevard C ounty Sheriffs deputies to more closely inspect vessels that are moored on county waterways. Those boats have to be in working order and be re gistered, he said. Were getting a lot more cooperation from those agencies to inspect the live-aboard boats to make certain they are sea-worthy and all the paperwork is up to speed. B ut, even then, its not a 100-percent solution to the problem, Mr. Culver said. I f a boat runs up on ground, and its in bad shape and not worth fixing, we can only tell who owns it if the registration numbers are still on the boat, he said. If those numbers disappear, its hard to say who owns what. Its a problem we have and probably will have for some time to come. Mr. Culver estimates that since the program began six y ears ago, salvage workers have removed more than 400 tons of derelict boat debris, which is brought to shore by barge and ultimately taken to the Brevard C ounty Land Fill in Cocoa. Also removed from the waterways were more than 30 marine batteries and 300 gallons of fuel and oil. While each phase of the r emoval program is put out to bid, so far, one salvage company has won all of the contracts. Kevin Miller, o wner of Brevard-based A bsolute Marine Towing & S alvage, has won the bid for each contract. After he gets permits from the Florida D epartment of Environmental Protection and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, his team goes to work. W e have a good crew, and we enjoy being out on the water, Mr. Miller said. W e have an excavator with a claw bucket that we place on a barge. We get near the target boat, set out retention floats and go to work. Mr. Miller said the worst boats to remove are the older wooden ones, as they tend to break up and the crew has more pieces to deal with. B ut, he said, each vessel is different. I f we find batteries on board, we take them out. If there is any gas or fuel, we pump that into holding tanks and send it to recyclers. We do try to salvage anything we can, Mr. Miller said. We have gotten a couple of props and a mast or two. But generally, these boats are pretty well-picked ov er. Theyre mostly junk, which is why were pulling them out of the water in the first place. While this phase should be wrapped up by the years end weather permitting Mr. Culver said he is already preparing for the next r ound. As soon as these last few boats are removed, Ill start writing the grants to try and get the money we need from the Navigation District and the Brevard registration fees for the next phase, Mr. C ulver said. There are 16 of these boats that Im aware of right now. B ut by the time the money is appropriated, the contracts are approved and the permits secured, that number could easily change, he said. H opefully, someday all our waterways will be cleaned up, and the only boats out there will be having fun, Mr. Culver said.

On Friday, Dec. 21, from 6 to 9 p.m., Don Soledad will debut his second album, Soluna, during a free CD release party at The Avenue Viera. The style of music featured on the new album is contemporary flamenco, a popular genre of Spanish music. The album also has a new age classical influence, Mr. S oledad said. M y vision for this album was to show the more traditional side of my playing, compared to my last album, which was more Rumba style, he said. I also wanted to incorporate modern elements that I enjoy in other music. I feel that I was able to capture those factors in this album. He said that his inspiration for Soluna stemmed from special people and experiences in his life. A few songs have been y ears in the making, while others only took a few days to compose, he said. I guess it just depends on what youre going through in your life at the time when you are composing. One thing is for sure: M usic is much easier to write when youre going through some hardship or drama in your life. Mr. Soledad and his band, the Don Soledad Group, typically play at C osta DEsta, a resort in Ve ro Beach owned by the seven-time Grammyaward winning singer and songwriter Gloria Estefan. B ut at the release party, the band will play alongside other talented artists featured on the CD. I m very excited to put on this show, as I will have my full band performing, as well as the new addition of musicians that played on the new album, Mr. S oledad said. In addition to playing at C osta DEsta, the band r egularly plays at Matts C asbah in Historic Downtown Melbourne, as w ell as Wolfgang Puck in Downtown Disney and V inz Wine Bar in Vero B each. S oledad released his first album in 2006, entitled C amino de Seda. It was inspired by special places where he grew up in Nor thern California. He said that making music can be a challenge, though he finds it rewarding. I think what makes music, in general, unique is the personality each artist evokes into their o wn sound, Mr. Soledad said. The difference between a musician and an artist is that an artist creates, and a musician copies, and some do it very well. To me, its much more difficult to find your o wn way successfully than to copy what others have done before. A friend of mine actually called me one night, while driving home from his gig in Orlando. He said, I heard y our song on the radio tonight, and I knew it was y ou before they even announced your name. And to me, thats what makes it all worth it.F estival of lights in MelbourneSpace Coast Light Fest is a family-oriented celebration, taking place through Dec. 31, at Melbournes Wickham P ark, 2500 Parkway Drive, Melbourne.

F or more than 31 years at its location on Aurora Road, o wner Joe Cagnina has adapted his pool hall with modern touches, all the while, keeping his facility fresh and modern. W e kept up with the times by bringing in new things to constantly stay alive, Mr. Cagnina said. Y ou have to keep advancing everything. We have one of the most modern facilities around, and we have r epeat customers because they enjoy coming to a place like this rather than going to a facility that is just onefaceted. F our years ago, Mr. C agnina updated his billiards club and added authentic arcade games, as w ell as other events for prizes that customers can play at their leisure. W e give customers Visa gift cards for the arcade machines, as well as free soft drinks and coffee to all of the players when they come in, he said. We also play bingo every other day. Right next to the arcade, we have the Players Billiards Club, where people can come to shoot pool and entertain themselves. The Players Billiards Club also offers a variety of tasty finger foods for customers, including chicken strips, fries, nachos and more. Mr. Cagnina said his arcade is also the only arcade that allows cigarette smoking indoors, which he said attracts customers from all over the county. As customers enjoy competing against one another in Bingo and other activities, music fills the establishment, creating a fun atmosphere for players and customers. W e play music through the place, so it doesnt have this sterile environment of other arcades, he said. Its not a sit-down, quiet, serious place. It features entertainment. The Players Billiards Club is open everyday from 9 a.m. to 1 a.m. and is located at 1935 Aurora Road in Melbourne.

On the Cover: Dalton Woody, 8, of Merritt Island and Brevard County Sheriffs Deputy David Orr of Malabar look at some toys at Walmart in Merritt Island during the annual Brevard County Sheriffs Shop with a Cop program Saturday, Dec. 15. www.BrevardSheriff.com 2Brevard County HOMETOWN NEWSBREVARD COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICE This will be my last guest column as your sheriff. While campaigning for Brevard C ounty Sheriff in 2004, I promised the citizens that I would only serve two consecutive four-year terms. I kept my promise, and Jan. 7 will be my last day as your sheriff. I would like to use this opportunity to thank the many people who made my time as your sheriff very rewarding and helped us succeed as a Sheriffs Office. I am deeply indebted to the citizens of Brevard County for allowing me to have this honor. Our citizens care deeply about our community and have been very supportive of their Sheriffs Office. Although we have had some very challenging financial times, our citizens have stepped up to support us, time and time again. Operating one of the largest Sheriffs Offices in the nation can be a tough job, but it has been made much easier because of our citizens trust and support. As an example, the outpouring of love and compassion from our citizens following the murder of our beloved D eputy Barbara Pill is something that will stay with me and the 1,400 members of the Sheriffs Office forever. We have also been blessed to have had a board of county commissioners and county manager that continuously place a high priority on protecting our citizens. While they have worked hard behind the scenes to ensure there was no wasted or unnecessary spending in the Sheriffs Office, they did not blindly cut public safety funding. There are many examples of law enforcement agencies across our state and nation that have been negatively impacted by poorly thought-out budget cuts, which greatly diminished public safety resulting in higher crime r ates. O ur commissioners have continued to state that their highest priority was to protect our citizens, and their actions have backed up their words. While there are many reasons Br evard County is safe and enjoys a low crime rate, the fact that our commissioners give law enforcement the tools to do the job is a critical factor in our success. I will never be able to adequately thank the men and women of our S heriffs Office. Working with these courageous individuals is the part of the job that I will miss more than anything else. To see the level of caring these people demonstrate on a daily basis is truly inspiring. I have been so fortunate to be part of a team of people who always puts the needs of others before their own. I am also grateful for a command staff that is second to none. These leaders are far from yes men, and each of them have been outstanding leaders in their own right. There is no sheriff who could fail, who was surrounded by these incredible individuals. On a personal note, I would like to thank two people in my life who have had the greatest impact on me as a person. First, my wife, Yvette, constantly reminds me about what is important. As one example of many, about 10 years ago, I was driving with my wife to my very first political debate. I was unusually quiet and she asked me Are you nervous? I said, Y es. Then, she said, Thats because y ou are more worried about yourself than the people you are supposed to serve. It isnt about you. I was never nervous about a public speaking engagement again. S econd, my pastor, Dr. Larry Linkous of New Life Christian Fellowship in T itusville, has had a profound effect on my life. I could not imagine having to face the challenges of being sheriff without him. He has brought me closer to God than I would have ever thought possible and improved my ability to pray for Gods wisdom and guidance. It would be my hope that anyone in search of a truly anointed pastor would consider spending some time listening to Dr. Linkous. It will change their lives, as it has mine. While looking back, we have had great success in our Sheriffs Office. Fr om correcting jail overcrowding to targeting sex offenders to ridding our communities of violent criminals and r educing the crime rate, we have had a strong run. B ut when you consider the support we have had from our citizens and our commissioners, and couple that with the abilities of our extremely capable and caring law enforcement and corrections personnel, it is hard to imagine having anything but success. I will be proudly turning the reins of this Sheriffs Office over to Sheriff W ayne Ivey. I have every confidence that he will be a wonderful sheriff, who will enjoy many successes and will lift our agency to even greater heights. Thank you for the trust you placed in me to be your sheriff.

S heriff Parker has left his mark on this agency and the citizens of Brevard County. He initiated so many improvements at the jail, making it a better and safer environment for everyone. He truly made a difference for us all and will be missed. His tenure as a sheriff reminds of a quote by Dr. Martin Luther King: The ultimate measure of a leader is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. S usan Jeter J ail Commander Br evard County Sheriffs Office As a 24.5-year deputy with the Breva rd C ounty Sheriffs Office, I have worked for three administrations, with Sheriff Jack Par ker as sheriff, for the past eight years. U ndoubtedly, in my opinion and many others, he has exceeded our expectations as the sheriff. His integrity, fairness, leadership and friendship have been felt by many citizens and employees of the S heriffs Office. He will be missed by many, with his lasting impression imprinted as a true leader ,who cared about his county and employees. Sgt.Mike Brown Br evard County Sheriffs Office S heriff Parker has been in a major leadership position on the Crosswinds Governing Board of Dir ectors for 20 years. Fr om Christmas of 1992, when he gave a party for 12 children in crisis, with nowhere to go, Jacks impact on the lives of thousands of Brevard C ountys children has been immeasurable. He is a truly amazing man, with a giant heart. J an Lokay Pr esident/CEO of Crosswinds Youth Ser vices S heriff Parker has done so much to elev ate the critical link between reducing crime and strengthening families, with having access to a strong base of prevention and early intervention programs like those our U nited Way is involved with. He has worked tremendously hard to bring those programs to as many families possible. His compassion and commitment to the people of this community is humbling. Our entire team is inspired by his servant leadership.

Mike Brown Jan Lokay Susan Jeter Susan McGrath A lasting impression During his time as leader of the Brevard County Sheriffs Office, Sheriff Parker has had the honor of working alongside some of the most wonderful organizations and individuals in the state. He has left a lasting impression on many throughout the county during his tenure, and his achievements and dedication has not gone unnoticed. Here are some kind words from a few of Sheriff Parkers staff members, colleagues and friends.

Dur ing the 2010 legislative session, the state of Florida passed and implemented new r equirements for all emergency telecommunicators, including those working in the Sheriffs Office Communications Center. These new requirements mandate that all 911 emergency dispatchers are to be certified, according to a set of standards developed by the state, in conjunction with several public safety communications organizations. Pr esently, all of the Sheriffs 911 communicators are certified within this program and have undergone the r equired training and passed the state certification test. These new standards recognize the communications function as the vital first link in the emergency response chain and ensure the public is r eceiving the highest level of professional service.

The Brevard County Sheriffs Office became one of the first law enforcement agencies in the state of Florida to integrate a Domestic Violence Unit into its daily operations. The unit is comprised of four sworn deputies, who hold the title of agent and four civilian victim advocates. Each of the agents and advocates are assigned a particular jurisdictional area within the county, which is operated out of the Criminal Investigations Division. The Domestic Violence Units name is deceiving, as the unit not only investigates domestic violence; it also investigates the crimes of child abuse, child neglect, elder abuse and elder neglect. Domestic violence is on the rise across the United States, and Brevard County is no exception. Unfortunately, domestic violence impacts people of every age, r ace, sex and economic status. S tatistics show that each victim, who makes a report of domestic violence, has been abused an average seven times before making a report to law enforcement. Ev en more disheartening is the fact that victims of child abuse and elder abuse normally never make a report. The victims suffer in silence until the signs of their abuse can no longer be hidden. The children are either at such a young age they cannot speak or the abuse has just become a way of life for them. The elderly are in fear of being left alone or placed in a facility with inadequate care. These victims have no voice, no hope and are filled with fear. The Domestic Violence U nit becomes the voice for each and every victim; ensuring justice is served for all victims. The Sheriffs Office takes great pride in the commitment of the Domestic Violence Unit to each investigation, ensuring there is no stone unturned. Once the investigation is completed and submitted to the State Attorneys Office for prosecution, the agents assigned to the case work hand-in-hand with the State Attorneys Office to provide any and all information needed and to guide the victim and family through the process. Each agent and victim advocate keeps close contact with the victim from the beginning of the investigation, through prosecution and in many cases, after the case has been prosecuted. It is the goal of the Domestic Violence Unit to assist each victim and help them to transition their life forward.

www.BrevardSheriff.com 6Brevard County HOMETOWN NEWSBREVARD COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICEDecember 2012 Keeping children safe in a world of technology W ould it surprise you to learn that one of the most dangerous threats facing parents today comes from home computers, laptops, tablets, smart phones and video game systems? There are a variety of issues that parents need to be aware of in order to be in a better position to protect their children. The following are some examples of threats to the safety of children that law enforcement is currently observing. S S exting: exting: T eens sometimes engage in an activity known as sexting, where they will text or email nude photographs or videos to one other. It is not unusual for a relationship to sour and for the photographs to be posted publicly in an attempt to bully or humiliate the victim. Often, the exposed teen is too embarrassed to tell their parents and the bullying continues. This humiliation is often so unbearable for a child that it can tragically lead to severe depression, drug abuse and even suicide. Child por Child por nogr nogr aphy aphy : : It is not uncommon for teenagers to share information with each other about pornographic websites, which they can easily access after lying about their age. These sites often have video chat r ooms, which allow the teens to video-conference with the adult entertainer. These adult entertainers may even coax teenagers into performing a sex act, which can be covertly recorded using the teens own webcam which may then be sold to child pornographers. P P edophile deception: edophile deception: A dult pedophiles sometimes masquerade as teenagers in an effort to gain the trust of unsuspecting teens. They use fake photos and profiles and work over weeks, even months, to build trust with the teen. Pedophiles are patient and may cultivate relationships with dozens of teens simultaneously. As the relationship progresses, the pedophile will begin r equesting photos and will encourage sexually graphic conversations. K eep in mind, the teenager believes they are falling in love with someone their age. The pedophile will eventually reveal his or her real age and will demand sexual contact. The victims whole world is suddenly turned upside down and they dont know where to turn. f the teen does not comply with the demands, the pedophile will threaten to ruin the teens life by sharing the explicit messages and photographs with their friends, their parents and school. It is not unusual for a teen in this situation to succumb to the pressure and threats or become suicidal, or both. There is nothing sadder for a law enforcement officer investigating a teen suicide to determine the teen felt driven to suicide because they had made a terrible mistake and were too embarrassed to approach their parents for help. S S o o , what can w what can w e do as par e do as par ents ents to better pr to better pr otect our childr otect our childr en? en? We can continue to educate ourselves about existing Internet threats. We can talk honestly to our children about the threats and make sure they know they can come to us about anything that bothers them. We can place our computers in a visible area of the home, which will discourage children and teens from visiting inappropriate websites. We can create rules for Internet use, such as when and where internet access is allowed. We can ask ourselves if providing our children portable devices such as laptops, tablets and smart phones with Internet access is really necessary? We can ensure we are aware of all w ebsites our children visit and that we have full access and knowledge of all passwords our children use for access. We can maintain awareness of all means of communication to include our childrens gaming systems (ie: PS3, Xbox, etc.) and we can learn how to navigate these systems to scan for inappropriate material or access. There are software products on the market which can help you determine if your child has been observing inappropriate images on a computer. If you would like a copy of the S heriffs Office Cyber Safety video with investigative software,please contact the Brevard County Sheriffs Office at (321) 264-5201 or send an email to admin@bcso.us and we will mail you a copy at no cost.

www.BrevardSheriff.com 7Brevard County HOMETOWN NEWSBREVARD COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICEDecember 2012 Cold Cases: never-ending investigations It is a sad fact that not all homicides will be solved. N ationally, in 2010, only 66 percent of the 15,241 homicides were solved. T ime is not an ally in homicide cases. W ith the passing of time, evidence degrades, witnesses move or die and memories fade. B ut it remains law enforcements priority to solve all homicide investigations, whether active or cold cases. The Brevard County Sheriffs Office H omicide Unit is responsible for investigating all manners of death throughout the unincorporated areas of the county, as w ell as seven municipalities and towns, which depend on the Sheriffs services. U nit personnel are requested for all unattended deaths, suspicious deaths, suicides and missing persons, where foul play is suspected. The unit works closely with the Medical Examiners Office, which determines the cause and manner of death. The Homicide Unit works closely with support units such as the Crime Scene U nit, which uses forensic science to document, collect, process and preserve evidence. The Sheriffs Office also coordinates its efforts with the entire law enforcement community with innovative initiatives such as Operation S.M.A.R.T (Specialized M ulti-Agency Review Team). This concept was created by FDLE (Florida D epartment of Law Enforcement) and is a directed effort to identify and prosecute the perpetrators of the various unresolved homicides. A fr A fr esh look at cold cases esh look at cold casesThe Brevard County Sheriffs Office and the law enforcement community work together as a team to complete a prescreening process. The pre-screening template is a 17page process that requires intricate knowledge of the case. It forces the assigned team to completely review the cold case homicide from every possible angle. If the re-examination of the case develops new leads, the team then works together to pursue the newly developed leads with additional resources to quickly and efficiently execute the necessary investigative steps. If the initial phase of Operation S.M.A.R.T. fails to resolve the cold case homicide, then the case is prepared for phase two. In this phase, the investigators prepare the case for presentation to a panel of experts in every discipline of investigation. The panel includes three to four veteran homicide investigators, crime scene experts, medical examiners, prosecutors, criminal profilers, statement analysis experts, criminal intelligence analysts, legal advisors, CrimeLine representatives and almost every forensic discipline available. The members of the panel are developed from all of the various agencies in the nine-county region. The members are considered by most to be experts in their r espective fields. The actual presentation of the case is executed through victimology, PowerPoint presentation, physical inspection of the evidence and witness or suspect testimony presentations. C old case investigation is a meticulous, painstaking undertaking, where prior investigations must be combed through, looking for any piece of evidence that might have been missed or could result in investigative leads due to new advances in technology. With the Sheriffs Office assigning a full-time investigator to pursue these cold cases, six of them have been solved.Some r Some r ecent success stories ecent success storiesR ecently, the Brevard County Sheriffs Office Criminal Investigations Division closed three cold case homicides: J J ohn G ohn G avin avin The first related to a 2005 death investigation, where skeletal remains were located by teenagers partially buried in a r emote area.

W ithin the past eight years, the Brevard County S heriffs Office Crime Scene Unit has grown in both size and capabilities. In 2004, the Crime Scene Unit consisted of five personnel, including one sergeant and four crime scene investigators/agents. The caseload placed upon the personnel was ov erwhelming. T oday, the Crime Scene Unit consists of 11 personnel, including one sergeant, nine crime scene investigators and one office assistant. With the addition of personnel, the caseload assignment has been reduced to a manageable level. The equipment used by the Crime Scene Unit for laboratory and fieldwork now consists of filtered drying chambers for drying wet or blood-tainted evidence; a filtered, humidity-controlled and timed fingerprint chamber; state-of-the-art alternate light sources assigned to each crime scene investigator; a self-contained filtered chemical chamber; and a robotic Sokkia Total Station for precise measuring/diagramming of scenes, along with other improved equipment. Through the use of a federal grant, a state-of-the-art, innovative mobile crime lab was added to the fleet. This vehicle provides a large platform from which to work extensive or large-scale crime scenes. It also has the capacity to carry all equipment necessary for virtually any crime scene response. The comprehensive vision for this important unit has provided a wellequipped and highly skilled Crime Scene Unit, whose members are in a much better position to serve the r esidents of Brevard County. www.BrevardSheriff.com 8Brevard County HOMETOWN NEWSBREVARD COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICEDecember 2012 a thorough study of the victim to include their lifestyle, took even longer, but it paid off. The victim was identified as a 67-year-old man from P olk County, who was murdered in September 2005. Once identified, investigators were able to identify potential suspects and the actual location the homicide occurred. A forensic search of the location positively identified the suspects, and led to the successful arrest of the suspects. N N atalie B atalie B r r adbur adbur y y In S eptember 1987, the partially clothed body of Natalie Bradbury was found in a canal in Cocoa. A former honor student, Natalie lived transiently, accepting rides from strangers and truckers. She was an easy target for a criminal with evil intentions. All leads at the time were exhausted and regular review of the case within the next two decades brought nothing new. But with fresh eyes came the thought of testing old evidence with new technology in hopes it might yield some new results and leads in the case. And yield, it did. Investigators were able to determine the suspect, Robert Yokel. Yokel was a man with a violent criminal past, including murder. He died in a Florida correctional facility, while serving a life sentence for a different crime. W W arr arr en Logue en Logue Du ri ng 2010, the Brevard County Sheriffs Office received information from a witness, who provided substantial facts relating to the 2007 death of 56-year-old Warren Logue. The witness stated that Mr. Logue received his fatal injuries when he attempted to stop a burglary that was being committed on his property. As the suspect attempted to flee, Mr. Logue was run over by the suspects vehicle. As the result of that information, agents located additional witnesses and eventually the truck believed to have been used as the murder w eapon in Illinois. H omicide agents conducted interviews in several parts of the United States, with the final witnesses and suspect in this case. As a direct result, an arrest warrant was issued in Br evard County and served on the suspect in Pe nnsylvania. The suspect, Steven Barton, is currently in the Brevard County Jail. R R amona Lee M amona Lee M oor oor e e On the morning of July 14, 1988, construction workers paving a northern extension of W ashingtonia Drive, west of Melbourne, discovered the body of a woman later identified as Ramona Lee Moore. The victim was found nude, beaten and left in a retention area which had filled with water during a recent rain. The M edical Examiner determined the cause of death to be drowning and classified the death as a homicide. Tw enty-three years later, the Brevard County S heriffs Office received a CODIS hit in reference to a DNA profile match from evidence r ecovered at the murder scene. The DNA matched the profile of Robert Edward Peek to an item of evidence located in the area of M oores body. Dur ing 2012, Peek was interviewed by investigators in reference to the murder. Peek denied any involvement in the death of Moore and provided a DNA sample for comparison to any evidence from the case. Lab comparisons between this sample and evidence from the murder confirmed the previous DNA results. H omicide agents interviewed Peek, who had been detained at the Brevard County Jail on unrelated cases. As a direct result of this interview, coupled with the DNA findings, an arrest warrant was obtained and Peek was charged with the murder of Ramona Moore. These are some of the recent examples of how cold cases are being solved with new technologies and highly skilled investigators. These successes should serve as a strong deterrent to criminals that the days of unsolved homicides are coming to an end. At the 2012 Annual Awards Ceremony, Sheriff Jack Parker recognized those involved with solving these cases for their determination and expertise. Sheriff Parker said, It is a very good feeling when we can meet with these families and tell them that the individual r esponsible for their loss is being brought to justice. The law enforcement personnel involved are absolutely determined to solve every case. Our citizens would be amazed to watch them work; they are a very dedicated group of people.

The Brevard County Sheriffs Office, along with the police departments of Cocoa, Melbourne, Palm Bay, Rockledge and Titusville, the F lorida Department of Law Enforcement and the Br evard/Seminole State Attorneys Office partnered in Operation GAME OVER (Gangs and Major Epidemic of Violence Enforcement Response). GAME OVER is a proactive approach to targeting violent criminals and stopping violent activity that is committed throughout Brevard County. The concept of the operation is a multi-pronged approach that is inclusive of intelligence collection, investigative techniques and technology. The GAMEOVER Task Force utilizes resources from various participating agencies to identify and subsequently apprehend those violent offenders. The unit works alongside the State Attorneys Office and United States Attorneys Office to prosecute the various individuals for all criminal offenses, including violent crimes, probation violations, w eapons charges, narcotics violations and other associated crimes. As one of the most visible law enforcement efforts, the GAMEOVER Task Force is making a huge impact in the community, with 800 arrests since its inception. Among these offenders we re Br evards most dangerous, which included homicide suspects, career criminals, sex offenders, home invasion and robbery suspects, fugitives from justice, as well as individuals considered to be the most wanted throughout the county. As an added bonus, many illegally possessed firearms and weapons have been removed from the streets. In addition to the successful arrest and removal of violent offenders from our community, other innovative programs have been established, such as Graffiti-Busters, which uses jail inmates to reduce graffiti in the community. In many cases, graffiti is more than unsightly and is used by gang members to establish territories and r ecruit new members. To this point, the program has r emoved more than 3,000 incidents of graffiti. The Sheriffs Office was honored as the 2010 recipient of the prestigious Davis Productivity Notable T eam Award of Distinction, sponsored each year by Pr udential Insurance and the Florida Tax Watch for innovative and cost-effective ways to reduce gang violence. The statewide award recognizes and rewards excellence in state government through partnerships and cost-saving measures. To date, the Sheriffs Office Graffiti Busters program has removed more than 3,000 incidents of graffiti throughout the county. BCSO supports 2012 United Way Campaign As a result of the generosity of the Br evard County Sheriffs Office members and our community sponsors, our BCSO 2012 United Way campaign was able to break BCSOs all-time record in giving and raised more than $224,000! What makes this total even more special is that more members of the S heriffs Office participated than ever before.

www.BrevardSheriff.com 10Brevard County HOMETOWN NEWSBREVARD COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICEDecember 2012 Aviation Unit reaches new heights The Brevard County Sheriffs Office A viation Unit has made great strides since 2005. F irstly, the unit acquired a set of fixed floats that attached to the training aircraft, allowing the aircraft to land on water. The need for this type of aircraft was necessary due to the increased number of water-related calls that the Sheriffs helicopters were responding to. When needed, Brevard County Fire R escue paramedics stand ready to ride with the deputy sheriff piloting the chopper. The attached floats allow the aircraft, which is named Star Fish to provide the ability to rescue people in places not accessible by other means. This helicopter has saved many lives since it was placed into operation. D ue to the extreme dangers of performing water rescues from the air, the A viation Unit seized an opportunity to train on-crew deployment into water with Patrick Air Force Bases 920th Rescue Squadron. The Aviation Unit is also trained in basic water life saving techniques with Br evard County Fire Rescues Ocean R escue Unit. W ithin three months of the floats being installed, Star Fish had its first water rescue. The Sheriffs Aviation Unit received a call of a boating accident at the entrance to the St. Johns River on Lake W ashington. The call indicated two airboats had collided, partially submerging both boats. Se veral people were reported injured, one critically. Star Fish was called to respond, as the scene was unreachable by land. W ith a Brevard County Fire Rescue paramedic on board, the most critical patient received immediate advanced medical care and was transported from the scene to an air ambulance and flown to the trauma center. B ecause of the increase in these types of calls, the Aviation Unit has begun training paramedics with Breva rd C ounty Fire Rescue Station No. 43, also located at the Merritt Island Airport. The paramedics are versed on how to respond, provide in-flight services and safely operate around and in the float aircraft. This training ensures the future success of the aircraft and will result in the saving of many more lives. In Apr il 2005, the Aviation U nit purchased a 10,000gallon double-wall fuel tank. This made fueling much safer for the Aviation U nit personnel. Pr ior to this, the unit was purchasing fuel, storing it in a used 8,000-gallon trailer, transferring it to a 600-gallon fuel truck and then fueling the Sheriffs aircraft. A new hangar was built for the Aviation Unit at the M erritt Island Airport, which replaced a hanger that was falling apart. The construction of the new hangar not only kept the aircraft and parts safer; it saved more than $1 million in rental payments of the term of the previous lease. The Brevard County Sheriffs Aviation Unit has been nationally recognized perhaps more than any other law enforcement aviation unit in the country. The FLIR Vision Awards honors the finest aviation operations out of hundreds of submissions each year. To be recognized once with this prestigious award is rarity for even the best aviation units. Brevards unit has been r ecognized in the top three on four different occasions in the past seven y ears: in 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2012. This unit is truly a cut above the rest and its members are fortunate to be serving Brevard County. Within three months of its new fixed floats being installed, Star Fish had its first water rescue. The Brevard County Sheriffs Office has equipped its helicopters with specialized tracking equipment, designed to locate missing persons who wear a personalized wristband that emits a unique radio signal. When caregivers or city police agencies notify the Sheriffs Office that the person with a Project Lifesaver wristband is missing, a Sheriffs helicopter and search-and-rescue team respond to the wanderers area and start searching with the mobile locator tracking system. S earch times have been reduced from hours and days to minutes. In more than 1,000 searches with this program, there have been no reported serious injuries or deaths. Recovery times average less than 30 minutes. The wristbands can be used for people with Alzheimers disease, Down syndrome, autism, etc. A special thank you goes to the members of Brevard County TRIAD who helped to implement and market the program, the reliable rapidr esponse partnership with law enforcement aiding victims and families suffering from Alzheimers disease, Down syndrome and autism.

www.BrevardSheriff.com 11Brevard County HOMETOWN NEWSBREVARD COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICEDecember 2012 Marine Unit makes waves, saves in Brevard W ith multiple hurricanes impacting Br evard County in 2004, Sheriffs personnel worked to improve its ability to r escue victims, especially in instances of n high water and high wind. As a result, the Sheriffs Office acquired from the military, four large six-wheel drive vehicles. They were purchased at a very low cost and were completely refurbished at the Sheriffs F leet Maintenance facility. T wo of the four have been fabricated with a protective steel enclosure on the back and outfitted with wheelchair ramps, allowing for easier loading of victims with special needs. The other two trucks have an open air bed, with bench seating and were used extensively for relief efforts to provide ice, water and food to victims in flooded areas, following the flooding from Tropical Storm Fay in A ugust 2008. These trucks are a very valuable r esource when needed, and I very much appreciate Mike Wimberly and his team at Fleet Services for ensuring we have the vehicles we need to help our citizens in when we need them, said Sheriff Jack Parker. In 2007, in an effort to reduce drowning deaths in Brevard County, the Sheriffs Office Agricultural and Mar ine Unit initiated a new boating and water safety program that has been presented in many schools throughout the county, as well as numerous civic functions and other public events. This program includes the use of an interactive robotic boat, which captures the attention of children known as Bobby the Boat. The program, funded by a grant through the state of Florida, allows deputy sheriffs to relay the importance of life jacket use, while on a boat, as well as talk to children and parents about water safety. So far, the program has been presented at more than 160 events to more than 14,000 children and adults in Brevard County. In addition to increased emergency situations, the hurricanes of 2004 r esulted in the sinking or partially submerging of hundreds of boats in F loridas lakes and rivers. M any of these boats were abandoned by their o wners and laid just under the waters surface, becoming a dangerous hazard for unsuspecting boaters. Pr ior to 2006, only the Florida W ildlife Commission had the authority to classify vessels derelict, which, due to its limited resources, could not keep up with the massive number of boats impacted by the 2004 storms. As a result, the law expanded to also allow counties and municipalities to classify vessels as derelict, so that they could be legally removed from waterways in the state of Florida. Br evard County asked the Sheriffs Office for help. As a result, the Sheriffs Agricultural and Marine Unit partnered with FWC and worked together to identify and r emove the vessels. To this point, more than 70 derelict vessels have been identified and r emoved from Brevards waterways, as a result of this partnership. The hurricanes of 2004 resulted in the sinking or partially submerging of hundreds of boats throughout Floridas waterways. F ollowing the 2004 hurricanes, BCSO acquired from the military, four large sixwheel drive vehicles to enhance Search & Rescue efforts. Bobby the Boat is an interactive robotic boat that teaches children about water safety.

Agents focus on detection, enforcement and citizen awareness and actively conduct awareness presentations with community businesses and Br evard County Waste Management to inform them regarding var ious items that may indicate the presence of a lab. Agents also partner with local, state and federal law enforcement to streamline lab processing and cleanup. To date, these efforts have proved extremely successful and have greatly minimized the impact and cost to the residents of Brevard County.The Facts: Clandestine labs are found in many areas, including residences, barns, garages, businesses, apartments, hotel r ooms and vehicles. Approximately 30 to 35 percent of methamphetamine labs seized are in places where children live Children may have methamphetamine exposure simply because they live in or near this toxic environment The hazards to children living in these environments are numerous. They are at risk of: Inhalation of toxic fumes Chemical waste in play areas Exposure to drugs and drug users Exposure to needles and smoking pipes, razor blades and other paraphernalia Weapons left in accessible places and booby traps, meant to protect the operation Possibility of fire and explosion during manufacture The effects on the parents behavior due to the drug use are: Parent or caregiver frequently has explosive temper leading to physical abuse due to irrational and brutal punishment Parent is awake for days at a time, followed by periods of sleeping for days, often leaving children poorly clothed, unfed, un-bathed and unsupervised Parent often associates with persons of questionable character Although many chemicals or associated precursors are common household solvents, cleaners and fuels, a clandestine lab can be suspected when large volumes of these chemicals are present and extreme caution should be exercised. If you have any concern that a methamphetamine operation may be present, contact your local law enforcement office for immediate assistance. Exposure to the chemicals or associated precursors may be potentially harmful or possibly lethal. Brevard County Sheriffs Office led the state in meth lab bustsBr evard County led the entire state of Florida for 2005, 2006, and 2007 in meth lab seizures. B ecause of the safety and protective equipment necessary to dismantle a meth lab and clean up the toxic chemicals, the Breva rd C ounty Sheriffs Office partnered with Brevard County Fi re Rescue during these operations. Agents are proud to report that their efforts have been successful, and the number of meth labs in Brevard County is declining. However, Sheriffs agents continue to be vigilant and on the lookout for new labs, especially as previously incarcerated meth cooks are released from prison following their three-year minimum mandatory sentences.

In 1995, a residence was purchased and converted into a 16-bed facility, which would provide shelter for the victims and their children. In 2008, the 16-bed facility was replaced with a 24-bed facility, which was funded by the Department of Children and Families. Ser ene Harbor has expanded its role in Br evard County by providing shelter, emergency room intervention, transitional housing, counseling programs, a helpline, case management, educational programs and safety planning. Ser ene Harbor attempts to reduce the number of incidents of domestic violence through intervention, prevention, social change, education and community involvement. A dditionally, a Legal Advocacy Program was designed to assist those who seek legal services or police intervention in regard to domestic violence. These legal rights include providing information about domestic violence, repeat violence, dating violence, civil court proceedings, criminal court proceedings, injunction for protection orders and emergency hotline numbers. It is for these reasons that the Brevard C ounty Sheriffs Office strongly supports the efforts of Serene Harbor and its mission to assist the victims of violent crime.

www.BrevardSheriff.com 15Brevard County HOMETOWN NEWSBREVARD COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICEDecember 2012 Staying safe aganist identity theft and fraud I dentity theft is the fastest-growing crime in the world and has the ability to impact each and every one of us. T en years ago, during Crime Prevention discussions, we informed citizens that identity theft was the fastest-growing crime in the state. Se veral years later, we would inform our citizens that identity theft had become the fastest-growing crime in the country. T oday, unfortunately, the Federal Bur eau of Investigation and the Federal Trade Commission have named identity theft the fastest-growing crime in the world. In fact, a recent study by the Federal Trade Commission revealed that identity theft is the No. 1 crime that concerns consumers. Of equal concern, far too many of our citizens are either unaware that identity theft can target them or are not sure what to do to protect themselves. One of the most alarming statistics related to identity theft is that only one in 700 identity thieves is actually identified and punished for his or her crime. While identity thieves primarily target our seniors, stealing their life savings and retirement funds, they can also target anyone of any age. Throughout our lives, we are taught to be protective of our good names, and credit and identity-thieves target both. While technology plays a major r ole in the increased number of cases of identity theft, it is not the sole driving force behind the epidemic that is occurring. The economy, as w ell as other factors, has given rise to new methods of not only stealing a persons identity, but has also creating new methods of using the stolen information to commit a crime. To days identity thieves not only use our information to target our credit, but also to commit employment fraud, government benefits fraud, insurance fraud, mortgage fraud and even tax-return fraud. While todays criminals continue to utilize traditional measures to steal our biographical information, technology has unintentionally created new abilities to target victims and steal their identities. The more common and traditional methods of stealing your identity can be characterized as: Garbage Collection Mail Theft Burglary ScamsT echnology has also created theft methods such as credit card-skimming, data breeches and computer intrusions, making it almost impossible to completely protect our selves from the various methods used by high-tech criminals. We can no longer afford to believe that shredding our garbage and not giving our social security number to everyone is enough to protect us against identity theft. T odays criminals take our personal information from our homes, computers, bank accounts and social media to steal our identities. In todays fastpaced world, we have to worry about peer-to-peer intrusions of our computers and those that target our Wi-Fi locations. While we can all agree that there is not a silver bullet that guarantees we dont become the victim of identity theft, there are certain steps you can take to protect you and your family from exposure. In law enforcement, we wear a bulletproof vest that helps to protect us from harm. By following the below steps you can put on your protection against identity thieves: Request an annual credit report (www.annualcreditreport.com) Shred everything (envelopes, documents, magazine covers, etc.) Only mail from locked mailbox locations Protect your home from burglary (bolting your safe to the floor) Never allow anyone to walk away with your credit card Only utilize password-protected W i-Fi spots (including in your home) Never respond to requests for your personal information Remove File Sharing from your computers Do not place personal information on Facebook Just Ask why a business needs y our social security number Utilize a uni-gel ball pen when writing checks The last layer of your protection is to be as vigilant of your personal information as you are over your homes and automobiles. To protect our homes, we use alarms, special lighting, and ask our neighbors to keep watch over our residences when we go on vacation. O ur cars are protected by alarms and locks; yet, we leave our identities unprotected. We must be very proactive and re-active in our approach to protecting our identities by aggressively watching over our information and being quick to recognize if we have become the target of identity theft. Protecting your identity is just as important as protecting your home, automobile and other personal belongings. Shredding your mail, documents, magazine covers and even envelopes c an save you from becoming a victim of ifentity theft.

As a result of the vision and guidance of Sheriff Jack Parker, coupled with the support of the Br evard County Board of County C ommissioners, we are now able to r eflect on many accomplishments improving jail operations and safety in the past eight years.In 2004, the jail had bed space for 1,041 inmates, but was seriously overcrowded with hundreds of additional inmates. The jail had been struggling with overcrowding for many years, but in 2004, it r eceived a lot of attention and became one of the countys big news stories when there were five jail suicides. As a result of the Board of County C ommissioners concerns, its members enlisted the services of a consultant to r eview the needs of the jail and suggest corrective actions. The consultant recommended a twophase plan, which was expected to cost approximately $143 million. While the plan was well thought out, the prevailing thought at the time was that it was not possible to acquire adequate funding for phase one ($43 million), much less phase two ($100 million), without a successful referendum passed by the voters. This presented a problem, as it would not be the Boards first attempt at trying to address the long-standing overcrowding jail issue, with a voter referendum. The Board had attempted four previous jail referendums to alleviate the overcrowding issue, all of which failed. There was little reason to believe a fifth attempt would be successful. Although, failure of the fifth referendum was all but certain, it seemed County C ommissioners had little choice but to start preparing for another referendum. Fr om our perspective, failure would mean additional delays to any real, tangible improvements to the jail. The jail was in such dire straights; we were concerned any further delays would prove disastrous. Morale at the jail was at an all-time low, and staff was losing hope that it would see real changes in its lifetime. When Sheriff Jack Parker won the election in 2004, everything changed. I mmediately, Sheriff Parker presented a plan to the Board, where it could make substantial and real improvements to the jail at a fraction of the cost, preventing the need to go to referendum. H is recommendations included space for approximately 700 inmates, including safer housing for those with mental health and medical issues, lowcost tents for minimum-security inmates, expanded laundry, food preparation and booking areas and other important improvements. S heriff Parkers cost-effective plan was well-received by the Board and approved. The concept was well thought out and allowed work to commence immediately. All of the work has been completed, and the jail is a very different and much safer facility today because of the changes. There is no doubt Sheriff Parker will be leaving the Br evard County Jail in a much better position than the way he found it. We will miss him. www.BrevardSheriff.com 16Brevard County HOMETOWN NEWSBREVARD COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICEDecember 2012 Jail Complex enhancements continue to improve The Brevard Jail Complex has undergone major renovations in recent years, featuring many of Sheriff Jack Parkers recommendations, which includes space for approximately 700 inmates, including safer housing for those with mental health and medical issues, low-cost tents for minimum-security inmates, as well as expanded laundry, food preparation and booking areas. Sheriffs bike program pedals forward The Sheriffs Office bike program was established in 2006 at the Sheriffs Work Fa rm and utilizes inmate labor to refurbish donated, abandoned or unclaimed bicycles. B icycles are donated to all Br evard County Sharing C enters for parents who cannot afford to provide a bicycle to their child for Christmas, birthday or other special events. A dult bicycles are also given to adults without transportation and to veteran organizations for homeless veterans. The refurbished bicycles are provided to those that need them at no charge. S ince the program began, more than 4,500 bicycles have been donated and given away to those in need.

In an effort to improve access to the public to view jail court proceedings, the Sheriffs Office implemented a web video streaming capability that residents can watch from their homes and businesses via their computers. R esidents can now observe and listen to the defendant, the defense attorney, the prosecutor and the judge. They can watch jail court live, as it happens. The jail courtroom is typically used for initial proceedings for those who were arrested in the county within the previous 24 hours and for plea proceedings, etc. The Brevard County Sheriffs Office appreciates the efforts of Brevard Community Colleges WBCC-TV for assisting the Sheriffs Office with this project.

Under the supervision of Sheriffs Cr ew supervisors, inmates have removed more than 2 million pounds of trash from Brevard Countys roadways. K eep Brevard Beautiful, a nonprofit agency, dedicated to the beautification of our r oadways and public spaces and the eradication of nonnative plant species has awarded the Brevard County Sheriffs Office its annual B eautification Award two times since 2006 for the great work performed by its jail staff and inmates. J ail Inmate work crews have also accomplished hundreds of landscaping and grounds maintenance projects since 2005. I nmates have been put to work, clearing out tons of ov ergrowth and invasive species from large areas in multiple cities, beautifying problem areas and reducing criminal activity. BCSO enlists jail inmates to perform a variety of landscape and roadway improvement projects. In F ebruary 2010, the Sheriffs Office implemented a Hydroponic Growing S ystem designed to grow vegetables without soil by utilizing a system of piping that provides nutrient solution to the roots of plants that are placed in a growing channel. Hy droponics is not only protective of the environment; it conserves both land and water. So far, 6,200 pounds of lettuce have been grown hydroponically. J ail staff is making efforts to continously grow more than 4,000 heads of lettuce, which will reduce jail food costs. A dditionally, the Sheriffs Office has implemented a small-scale aquaponics system, in which a 600-gallon tank is used to raise tilapia. The nitrogenr ich water from the fish tank is channeled through piping, which is used to fertilize more than 100 heads of lettuce. The first harvest of aquaponics lettuce was performed in May 2012, r esulting in 50 pounds of lettuce produced. Plans are in place to expand the aquaponics system, with the ultimate goal of increasing the production of lettuce, while also producing approximately 1,000 fish fillets per month for consumption at the Jail Complex further reducing jail food costs. Hydroponics system thrives The first harvest of aquaponics lettuce was performed in May 2012 at the Brevard County Jail Complex, resulting in 50 pounds of lettuce produced.

18Brevard County HOMETOWN NEWSBREVARD COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICE www.BrevardSheriff.com December 2012 New medical mental health unit increases jail safety Sheriff Jack Parkers tenure has featured a tough on crime approach to his law enforcement mandate, balanced by a pragmatic and appropriately compassionate perspective of individuals with special mental health needs. M any of his initiatives successfully manage offenders who, without proper monitoring and intervention, might experience adverse effects such as suicides, staff and inmate injury. S heriff Parkers concepts have been innovative, creative and successful. In addition to creating a safer jail environment, many of his mental health initiatives have also resulted in significant cost-savings as a result of their implementation. An important component of his jail expansion plan was the creation of a new medical/mental health facility, which was designed primarily as a dormitory housing unit with on-site corrections deputies, which dramatically reduced the typical operational costs that would have been required by more traditional jail designs. The architectural design not only resulted in significant cost-savings, but created a safer corrections environment that increased inmate visibility and reduced the likelihood of adverse inmate incomes, such as suicides. In the four years since its construction, no suicides have been experienced in this housing unit, although it houses individuals with the most serious mental illnesses and highest potential suicidal risk. We are very proud to have been a part of the many improvements made to the jail facilities and mental health programs, r esulting in a safer environment for jail inmates, with mental health and medical issues and the staff responsible for their care. Mental health facility provides evaluation and treatment of inmates with emotional and mental health problems. Sheriffs work farm produces results Inmates make own uniforms, save tax dollars The Brevard County Sheriffs Office Wo rk Fa rm provides supervision, structure and guidance for offenders sentenced by Brevard judges. I nmate work crew labor is used to complete various projects for the betterment and beautification of Brevard C ounty. In many cases, judges sentence offenders to work their sentence off on their days off from their normal employment. That way, the individual can serve his sentence, but still maintain employment, r educing their chances of getting arrested again. The program saves dollars over traditional confinement, in which taxpayers must pay for meals, housing and medical services. Since 2004, the teamwork and direction of the Sheriffs Inmate Wo rk Cr ew supervisors over those sentenced to the Work Farm have led to the harvesting of approximately 42,000 pounds of potatoes, onions, collard greens, okra, corn, squash, zucchini, snow peas, carrots, turnips and cucumbers from the fields, which were used by the jail complex and local food banks throughout Brevard County. Field vegetable production has steadily increased each year since 2004, and a 30,000square-foot area has been tilled for additional crop production. In M ay 2007, the Sheriffs Office initiated an Inmate Sewing Program. The inmates are now responsible for making all inmate uniforms, sheets, mattresses and laundry bags. R epairs are made to any ripped uniforms or mattresses to further extend their use. The inmates work with several different types of industrial sewing machines, while learning all the basics of commercial sewing. The skills they learn, coupled with the improvement in their work ethic, place them in a better position to gain employment upon their r elease. The success of this program saves Br evard County taxpayers approximately $45,000 a year.

Visitwww.BrevardSheriff.com for additional information, or contact Maj. Greg Robertson at (321) 690-1504. Paws and Stripes program: a pawsable solution In S eptember 2006, the Sheriffs Office implemented an innovative program that matched unadoptable dogs with specially trained jail inmates. U sing inmates to give obedience training to dogs to make them more adoptable and r educing the number of dogs being euthanized in Brevard County was a positive outcome for all, and the program has proven to be a great success. S ince the inception of the Paws and Stripes program, 208 dogs have successfully completed the program and have been adopted into loving homes. The affect the dogs have had on the inmate population has been remarkable and has created a calming affect among the inmate population. In many cases, inmates have said their time working in the program was lifechanging and gave them purpose during a tough time in their lives. The Paws and Stripes program is operated without tax dollars, thanks to a special group of residents, known as the Paws and Stripes G uild, who work hard to raise donations for the care and feeding of the dogs. Dur ing the program, inmates are taught how to properly train the dogs and care for them. Upon completion, inmates are validated as recognized pet care technicians by the American Boarding Kennels Association and r eceive a certificate for completing the American Red Cross Pet First Aid course, making the inmates more employable.

Sex Offender Unit: Committed to child safety In r esponse to the issues relating to sexual offenders, the Brevard County Sheriffs Office unveiled an innovative approach of monitoring, registering and tracking sexual offenders, with the implementation of the S exual Offender Registration and Tracking U nit (S.O.R.T.) in December 2005. This all-encompassing unit became r esponsible for the registration of all sex offenders in Brevard County, as well as verifying their addresses, monitoring their movements and enforcing the statutes of the state of Florida. W ith more than 600 offenders and predators in Brevard County at that time, this was a major undertaking. Additionally, this list was expanded to investigate sexual exploitation against children via the Internet. A multi-faceted approach was outlined for the S.O.R.T. Unit at its inception. In order to meet the public needs of notification, the unit searched for the most effective service available to facilitate a time-sensitive notification system. The BCSO then became the first Sheriffs Office in the state of Florida to partner with Offender Watch Systems to develop a webbased notification program, along with a mail-out system, to reach as many citizens as possible. T oday, Offender Watch has partnered with law enforcement agencies across the country, to include the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. This service is provided throughout the entire county, for every jurisdiction and generates a mailing using postcards to notify citizens in the immediate area affected by the movement of the offender. S ince inception, hundreds of thousands of notifications have been directed to the citiz ens in Brevard County. The program also offers the public the ability to sign up for free electronic notifications of sex offenders in the community by visiting the BCSO website. This will link users to a searchable sex offender database and safety tips for community awareness. The service provides immediate email alerts to citizens when a known sex offender moves into an area of concern. Thousands of Brevards citizens have taken advantage of this service at no charge. M aking sure sex offenders are where they say they are and are abiding by the rules of their release is a challenging, but important task. As a result, law enforcement agencies work in partnership with the Sheriffs S.O.R.T. Unit and probation and parole units to ensure offenders are in compliance. The S.O.R.T. Unit relies heavily upon prevention and awareness. The unit members provide community-based training, regarding child safety tips on using the Internet. The training encourages parents, teachers and guardians to be vigilant in their childcare efforts and teaches them how sex offenders access children using the Internet and other means. The Sheriffs Office is also proud to be a part of a multi-jurisdictional task force, composed of members of the Sheriffs Office and the U.S. Marshal that targets sex offenders, who are wanted on either sexual exploitation charges or those who have absconded from probation or registration conditions, originating from Brevard County. This partnership continues to provide successful results, as evidenced by the arrest of Ha rv ey Wayne Taylor, who was to appear on an upcoming episode of Americas Most W anted, due to the serious nature of his original conviction, coupled with the lengthy efforts by the Sheriffs Office to locate and arrest him. T aylor, who had been wanted since 2004 for violation of probation, was an absconded sexual predator, who had been non-compliant with his court-ordered conditions. Taylors probation related to aggravated sexual child abuse, involving multiple counts of sexual battery on children younger than 12. T aylor, along with an adult son, was arrested at a residence in Newtonville, New Jersey, on Mar ch 9, 2012. A variety of operations have been conducted to keep sex offenders in check. One such operation, Operation Safeguard, has been conducted for the past four years, in which multiple law enforcement agencies throughout Brevard County have joined with Pr obation and Parole to check hundreds of sex offender residences on Halloween to ensure there were no unsupervised contacts with children. B ecause of the worldwide capability of the I nternet, an immediate partnership was forged with the International Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC) and the Department of Homeland Security formerly known as (ICE). Locally, DHS and S.O.R.T. have also formed a Child Exploitation Task Force. These partnerships have continued to increase as the S.O.R.T. Unit now also partners with the F.B.I. as part of the Innocent I mages Task Force. The efforts of the Brevard County Sheriffs Office have been credited by the U.S. Attorneys Office as enabling the Middle District of F lorida to prosecute the highest number of cases in the nation. Du ri ng 2011, 114 offenders were charged, as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative of the Department of Justice designed to protect children from sexual exploitation and abuse. The ICE/BCSO Task For ce significantly contributed to this effort in terms of the number and quality of cases presented for prosecution. This task force identified and rescued eight children, who we re suffering from sexual abuse and exploitation. They investigated and arrested more than 60 defendants for the production/distribution and possession of child pornography and for sexually exploiting children online. T wo of the defendants were registered sex offenders, and four cases involved the use of a facility in interstate commerce to arrange for sex with a child. A wards and recognitionThe Guardian Brevard, Protect Our Children Inc., selected Sheriffs Agent Dan Ogden for the 2010 Junny Award. The annual award recognizes the Floridian who has done the most to advance the cause of child protection.

4S. BREVARD CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2013FOREVER YOUNG I love music and love shaking my booty, so I thought, why not give it a try? After a month of Zumba classes, I had already lost 30 pounds. Vickie Mathis BREVARD At her heaviest, V ickie Mathis weighed 410 pounds. S he suffered from constant headaches and experienced pain in her back, legs and joints. The Port St. John resident knew she needed to make a change. M y journey began when the doctor tried to hospitalize me a year and a half ago, she said. I was already on medications for hypertension, and I was a borderline diabetic when I made this visit to her office. She wanted to hospitalize me immediately I begged her to allow me one month to work on this on my own. On that day, I decided that my life would be different because I was going to do things differently. Ms. Mathis first steps to living a healthier life began with walking. I first started walking around my block when it was dark outside, she said. I was too ashamed of people seeing me in the daylight. Then, a friend suggested she try Z umba, a Latin-inspired form of exercise dance. I had heard of Zumba, but I never even thought about trying it because it was a group exercise activity, she said. However, I love music and love shaking my booty, so I thought, why not give it a try? After a month of Zumba classes, I had already lost 30 pounds. T oday, Ms. Mathis weighs 258 pounds a weight-loss difference of 152 pounds since August 2011. S he said her life has changed tremendously. Before, Ms. Mathis would eat candy and ice cream without hesitation; now, she makes conscious decisions about the types of food she intakes. And r ather than being the timid woman in the back of the classroom at Z umba, now, she is the instructor. Z umba has impacted my life immensely, she said. I dont look for parking spaces closest to the door of a business anymore. I can now reach down and tie my own shoes. I can stand straight up and see my toes. The simplest things have become the hugest components of my life. R osalind Prescott, who teaches Z umba classes at the Wickham Park S enior Center in Melbourne, said that Zumba also changed her life. After being a competitive collegiate athlete in basketball and a national karate champion post-college, sports was a huge part of her life. But a back injury put her out of sports and fitness for two years. I gained more than 35 pounds and started to fall into depression, Ms. Prescott said. I found my first Zu mba class being offered at a small gym in Rockledge. Although it was hard because I was out of shape and my muscles were not strong, it was the only exercise that I could modify to my level, and that I could do, which did not hurt my back. Plus, the energy, upbeat and exciting music and instructor were such good motivation to make me want to try again and come back for more. Ms. Prescott said that Zumba classes are beneficial because the workouts engage many muscles, often while the participant is blissfully unaware that he or she is incorporating traditional fitness moves like squats and lunges into dancing, which tones and tightens the body. The class gets your heart beat up so you can burn from 400 to 1,000 calories per class with one hour whizzing by, Ms. Prescott said. I usually burn around 800 calories when I teach a class. Workouts that feel like work are hard to get excited about.

The Seaside Piecemakers Quilt Club, a Satellite Beach-based group of quilters who use their craft to serve the community, handmade 33 lap quilts for children in need. At the groups holiday luncheon in December, the quilts we re given to Brevard Recue Mission, a nonprofit aiming to break the cycle of homelessness among mothers and children in the area, as well as items that the organization were in need of. (Brevard Rescue Mission) has almost run out of personal hygiene and cleaning items from their pantry, said J udy Pacificador, publicity chairwoman for the Seaside Piecemakers Q uilt Club. The quilts will be given to the children for comfort during the upcoming colder months. F ounded in 1981, the Seaside Piecemakers Quilt Club, part of the National Q uilting Association, has 300 quilt makers spanning from Barefoot Bay to C ocoa. The club meets regularly with invited speakers and special classes at Her itage Isle Club House on the fourth W ednesday of each month, except November and December. From this group, about 10 smaller Quilt Circles meet twice per month at several Breva rd P ublic Libraries or quilt shops in the area, where the actual quilt making is performed. In addition to giving back to the community, members of the Seaside Piecemakers Quilt Club enjoy quilting alongside one another. M embers seek an environment of sharing, encouragement, friendship, learning and community service, Ms. P acificador said. S he said that this year, the women r esponsible for creating the quilts for Br evard Rescue Mission had lots of fun, even while donating their own supplies and dipping into their personal bank accounts to complete the quilts. H ours upon hours of sewing, both at the circle gathering and at home, is hard to quantify, Ms. Pacificador said. B ut the good feeling of being able to help a community is evident, and it is the foremost motivation for these ladies to give of their time to the cause. That sense of reward is priceless. In addition to the quilts, Ms. Pacificador estimated that the cash donations, used to purchase items that Breva rd Rescue Misison will need throughout the year, added up to more than $1,500. Each year, the club donates items to in-need organizations at its holiday luncheons, such as Daily Bread, Genesis House, Hacienda Ranch and more. F or these Seaside members, who themselves may be on fixed incomes, their desire and generosity to contribute to this cause speaks volumes about their sense of giving and goodwill to all, Ms. Pacificador said. C urrently, the Seaside Piecemakers Q uilt Club is at its maximum amount of members at 300. The club invites interested applicants to join as space becomes available, via its website, www.seasidepiecemakers.com.

In addition to Z umba, she recommends walking or swimming, as they are both safe, moderate exercises for overweight individuals. As for food consumption, Ms. M athis said she steers clear of breads, pasta, rice, potatoes and anything with sugar in it. Her diet consists of mainly protein: meat, vegetables, cheese and eggs. And for the first eight weeks of her weightloss routine, she only consumed water. Reward yourself once a week with that cup of coffee that you gave up, she said. Keep your mind on what you eat. My mind is pondering food all day long. Im still addicted to food, but I only eat what will be beneficial to my health. Ms. Mathis said to overcome overw eight and unhealthy lifestyles, the hardest step to take is the first one: making a commitment to oneself to lose weight and get healthy. I t has to be a personal decision, she said. Now, she said she feels the best she has ever felt in her life. At age 43,I feel somewhere around 25 years old,she said.I am so proud of the plus-size woman that I am. Ms. Mathis teaches Zumba classes M onday through Friday at both C ome On Get Happy in Cocoa Village and Martas Dance Studio on M erritt Island. I use Zumba as a tool to reach out to people not only the overweight or obese, but to anyone who is looking to overcome any obstacles in their lives. The bottom line is that the mind has to be made up. You have to focus on what you want, and dont lose focus, even if you go off track for a spell, she said.

8S. BREVARD CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2013FOREVER YOUNG Health and vitality with herbsHERB C ORNER Diet, exercise and rest have always been essential for the maintenance of good health. Now, more than ever, herbs are necessary for the maintenance of our health, especially with so much stress and toxicity from our environment. For thousands of years, plants have been used to increase energy, boost the immune system, provide nutrition, enhance mental clarity, increase physical stamina and to enliven the libido. There are thousands of plants that have these abilities, but for the sake of space and time, I have stopped at five. Astragalus, as an energy tonic herb, helps the body adapt to physical exertion and stress, and for people with low energy, it helps boost metabolism. It has been used for more than 4,000 years in China and it is still used now as an herb to strengthen the immune system, fighting bacteria and viruses. Astragalus is especially good for chronic weakness to the lungs or for those who have taken many antibiotics and are now susceptible to infections. G arlic also has the ability to fight bacteria that have become resistant to antibiotics; it also fights viruses, fungi, C andida and yeast. One of the reasons it can do this is because its enzymes detoxify the body of carcinogens. In the circulatory system, regular use of garlic can raise HDLs, lower LDLs, as well as lower triglyceride levels, and for many people, it helps lower blood pressure. Tu rm eric, when taken regularly, acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory; for some it works safer and much better than long-term use of cortisone because it protects the flora of the digestive system and the liver. Studies on Turmeric have shown it to be five times stronger than Vitamin E in its antioxidant properties and to be beneficial to dementia and high cholesterol. Be aware that a large amount of Turmeric inhibits blood clots; if you are taking anticoagulant medications, you need to talk to your physician. D andelion is a highly nutritious plant, one that is packed with iron, making it good for anemia. As a diuretic, it removes excess fluid from the body, but provides the needed potassium that can be lost when taking pharmaceutical water pills. Dandelion is also used to support the liver and gallbladder in the removal of waste products; this detoxification provides r elief for gout, eczema and psoriasis. G inseng is probably one of the most popular vitality-enhancing herbs.

9S. BREVARD CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2013FOREVER YOUNG By Chris Fish Staff writerOne-of-a-kind barbecue on the beachD INING INDIALANTIC For elite barbeque lovers living in a beach community, it is a very rare occasion to come across a barbecue dish that is both delicious and satisfying, especially for those who have experienced the very best in barbecue. Among the very best, some may say, is Carolina-barbeque, a worldr enowned Southern delicacy that includes slowly roasted meat taken from all over the pig. The taste is oneof-a-kind, and cheap imitators will never fool a true barbeque connoisseur. I ndialantics Coachs Grill will never be considered an imitator. Located on the southern side of F ifth Avenue, Coachs Grill offers truly authentic and delicious Carolina barbecue, where even the biggest barbecue critic can rejoice. F or nearly two months, owner Ricky Michaelsen has offered fresh dishes to his customers in a true Carolina style, something he said no one else in Brevard can offer. P eople have other styles (of cooking barbecue), where they want to cook this and smoke that, but real Car olina Barbecue is roasted like a pig-picking, he said. We use all of the pig because every bit of the pig is good. Our meat, which is apple cidervinegar based, comes fresh and delivered straight to the Melbourne Airport every three days. Mr. Michaelsen, who has owned five other restaurants in Virginia, named his restaurant after his 31 y ears of experience, coaching basketball. During his time at Old Dominion College in Virginia, he and his teammates won the Division II N ational Championship. Currently, Staff photo by Chris FishRicky Michaelsen, owner of Coachs Grill in Indialantic, offers customers authentic Carolina barbecue.See DINING, Page 10 725-3990251 Florida Ave. Melbourne www.MelbourneTerraceRehab.com033322Inpatient & Outpatient Rehabilitation Services Inpatient &Outpatient Rehabilitation Stroke &Cardiac Recovery Pulmonary Therapy Infusion Therapy Wound Care Restorative Therapy Nutritional Therapy Lymphedema Therapy PainReduction Management Melbourne Terrace provides skilled rehabilitative services for those patients who require skilled needs in order to return to their prior level of function.Put A Little Spring In Your Step 033320

In addition to the many restaurants he operated, Mr. Michaelsen also o wned a catering business. It was through his catering business, he said, that Mr. Michaelsen truly realized the impact Carolina Barbecue had on his customers. M y catering business used to cater auctions for towing companies, where they would have people come and bid on wrecked or abandoned vehicles, he said. At the auctions, 200-300 people would come and we would sell about 300-500 sandwiches. They couldnt get enough. At Coachs Grill, diners can choose between a variety plates served with fries and slaw, including a barbecue sandwich or barbecue wrap, Norfolk hot dogs and cheese dogs, cheeseburgers, a pork loin sandwich and a BLT sandwich. Mr. Michaelsen said Norfolk dogs are another specialty his restaurant offers, and they are served up fresh with onion, mustard, homemade sauce and chili all atop a steamed bun. Along with the barbecue and hot dogs, Coachs Grill offers one of the best cheeseburgers youll ever eat. They have more grease than most cheeseburgers, but not enough to get messy on your shirt, Mr. Michaelsen said. It may not be the healthiest, but it makes a great burger. F or breakfast lovers, Coachs Grill also offers the breakfast essentials, including eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, pancakes and a variety of breakfast wraps. C oachs Grill is located at 147 Fifth Ave ., Indialantic and is open from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. F or more information,call (321) 541-7715. New technologyREHABILITATION The new year always brings a multitude of Baby Boomers into a personal pledge for wellness. Each year, technology continues to make rehabilitation and fitness just a little easier. The latest exercise equipment uses smart card technology. Now, you dont have to remember your last workout routine. By sliding a card into the exercise equipments monitor, the machine automatically sets up the previous repetitions and resistance. The Smart Card system is for exercise planning, recording, feedback and instructions. W orking out with air resistanceF or the active and aging population, air resistance is the latest advent. Its been proclaimed to make exercise movement feel smoother and safer to execute, and the workout is more muscle specific with less wear and tear on the joints. Machines designed for lifestylesB ecause the human body moves in all planes with varied resistances, the newest technologies operate tridimensionally through any possible movement patterns. Rehab is not just lifting a dumbbell anymore and r epeating three sets of 10.Therapeutic safetyM any seniors cant tolerate their entire joints range of motion. Those who are fresh out of surgery or who have painful arthritic restrictions can now rely on the latest built-in restrictors. Movement limits can now be set for each persons comfort and tolerance. The latest equipment has heart r ate monitors built into the handlebars to help determine safe tolerance to exercise. With advanced brake technology found on newer recumbent elliptical machines, theres less jarring of movement and it is safer for joints to handle an increase or decrease in r esistance. Easier accessR ehabilitation for seniors mandates comfortable and larger seats that slope slightly upward for maximum comfort. The other improvements are as simple as ergonomically designed swivel seats and sloped handlebars that also swivel and are designed to increase ease of access. Space-age technology from NASAThe latest, newest treadmill called the AlterG, encircles the body from the waist down, with differential air pressure technology. Therapists can actually calibrate the precise un-weighing of the body up to 80 percent. This means that if a patient cant walk, due to pain with weight bearing, then w eight is taken out of the equation. Its also connected to a viewing monitor to allow the therapist to give instant cues for faster learning through the monitors feedback. Because its lowimpact, many would say its an improvement for seniors who want a more comfortable exercise experience.

Santa made a visit to Micco to have cookies and take photos with children Monday, Dec. 10. A holiday tradition, more than a decade in the makingBREVARD In delicately wrapped packages, cookies of all kinds have been spreading joy to homes and offices throughout Brev ard. S nickerdoodles, rum balls, peanut butter blossoms and chocolate covered cherry cookies are just a few of the treats responsible for satisfying sweet tooths and filling hungry tummies near the holidays. The perpetrator behind it all lives in M elbourne Beach. H er name is Liz Cassella, a Melbourne business owner and cooking extraordinaire. Mrs. Cassella, who baked cookies near Christmastime with her grandmother as a child, started a holiday tradition called Cookie D ay more than a decade ago. In just one day, Mrs. C assella bakes more than 1,000 cookies to be distributed to friends, families and coworkers to spread the holiday cheer. Each y ear, Cookie Day becomes a holiday event in and of itself. This year, we baked 1,242 cookies," she said.

Embraer, AAR Airlift Group and local business leader Travis Proctor were each recognized with the Governor's Innovators in B usiness award, which recognizes businesses that contribute to improving F lorida's economy and community investment efforts, the Economic De velopment Commission of Florida's Space Coast said in a press release. Mr. Proctor is the CEO of ndtArtemis, a Brevardbased information technology company. Each of the three were r ecognized in different categories during the ceremony: Embraer Executive Aircraft Inc. was awarded the Governor's Business E xpansion Award; AAR Airlift Group Inc. was awarded the Governor's Newcomer A ward; and ndtArtemis CEO Travis Proctor was r ecognized as an innovator under 40. The Florida Innovators U nder 40 Award is a newly added recognition. The award is based on job-creation records, business achievements and community involvement.

The two new towers, which are located at the C ocoa Beach Pier and at S hepherd's Park in Cocoa B each, are part of a proposed construction of four budgeted lifeguard towers, O cean Rescue Chief Jeff Scabarozi said. "W e are happy to unveil the new towers. It's a positive image for people to actually see a lifeguard tower," Chief Scabarozi said. "We are trying to build the other two in the spring. With turtle season approaching, we hope to get the other two built before then." Chief Scabarozi said the building materials need to create each tower cost about $5,000 each. Construction of the towers is completed at no cost to taxpayers by workers at the Brevard C ounty Sheriff's Work Farm, Chief Scabarozi said. Once completed, Chief Scaborozi said the two news towers were delivered from the work farm and set up at their locations with assistance from Brevard County R oad and Bridge.

"We want our guests to swim near lifeguards, and, with these new towers, it is much easier to locate lifeguards on the crowded beach. V isibility for our lifeguards has also been improved. It's truly a win-win." Chief Scabarozi said the two towers, which will be constructed in the spring, will be located at Lori Wilson Pa rk and the Minuteman Causeway, both of which are in Cocoa B each.

So 11 years ago, I started a C ookie Day of my own." So what does it take to make more than 1,000 cookies in a single day? A lot of butter, sugar, flour and helping hands. Each year, Mrs. Cassella has friends and family who offer assistance in the kitchen. From taste-testing the most desirable job to ov erseeing the oven, Cookie D ay accomplices are essential to the success of the day. The most important helper is someone who rolls all the cookies," Mrs. Cassella said. "Cookie Day would not be possible without a r oller." In addition to the labor, Mrs. Cassella said preparation for the day is crucial. This year, she gathered 18 pounds of flour, 24 sticks of butter and 11 pounds of sugar, among many other supplies. The end result is, of course, an abundance of cookies, as well as many delighted recipients, who are thankful for Mrs. Cassella's enthusiasm for the holidays, which comes in the form of the delicious treats. Liz pours so much into Co okie Day each year," said her friend and fellow Cookie D ay participant, Bonney Ko o. "I t' s really a testament to her character. She is such generous person with a big heart, and she has been keeping our bellies satisfied and full of cookies for many y ears." Mrs. Cassella said she hopes to see her three children share the tradition with their families for many years to come, which means the C assella family has a lot of butter, sugar and flour in its future. "I keep thinking each year, Am I crazy for doing this?'" Mrs. C assella said. "But I couldn't imagine a holiday season without Cookie Day." And those close to Mrs. C assella don't want to, either.CookiesF rom page A1 Lien Koo, Bonney Koo and Liz Cassella take a break from baking to pose for a picture at Mrs. Cassella's house in Melbourne Beach.

special needs, Mrs. Malfara said she stumbled upon a therapy used in the Netherlands for people with autism or developmental disabilities called Snoezelen. S noezelen therapy places an individual in a soothing and stimulating environment known as a "Snoezelen ro om." Using lighting effects, colors and sounds, the person in the room is stimulated by various forms of wireless interaction. After discovering this form of therapy, Mrs. Malfara was determined to bring Snoezelen to Brevard C ounty, and, earlier this y ear, she opened Morgan's P lace in Melbourne Beach. "S noezelen is a sensorybased and wireless therapy," she said. "You can make a light beam activate and other (sounds and visuals) through different ways (depending on the individual)." How ever, despite the new facility offering an alternative to play areas for children with special needs finally being opened, Mrs. M alfara said she quickly r ealized that there just was not enough space for the activities the children she helps required. When we built the facility, we had enough room for one-on-one care, where we can help someone physically get out of a wheelchair (and interact with the ro om)," she said. "We didn't build it for ones to run around. It was for gentle use. So we set our sites to find something a little bigger." L uckily, Mrs. Malfara found the perfect facility in Melbourne to expand her Snoezelen therapy, and, if all goes according to schedule, broken leg and all, the new facility will open by January. Mo r gan's Place accepts children with special needs from any location by appointment only. Despite how interesting and fun the facility may seem for siblings to the child with special needs, Mrs. Malfara said the facility is only for children with special needs. No w, with the new facility becoming a reality, and her organization still helping children with special needs from areas throughout central Florida, Mrs. Malfara intends to rest and mend her broken leg. Things are kind of stalled at the moment," she said. All you really can do is keep a sense of humor about the whole thing." The new Morgan's Place will be located at 4241 N. U.S. 1 in Melbourne.

S hould the 911 operator be chastised for not understanding S panish, or should arrogance be rewarded?Neighbors helping neighborsI would like to know what has happened to neighbors helping neighbors. I just recently had surgery and have been struggling to deal with the use of my dominant hand. No w, I have injured my knee, and I can hardly walk. So I now have a brace on one arm and one leg. My neighbors were outside, and I am struggling to take my garbage and recyclables out. I asked the neighbors for help, but that doesn't seem right. They should volunteer to help without being asked. It is sometimes humiliating to ask for help. I am just curious to know why neighbors don't seem to want to help people anymore.Why we said NO' to tax increaseIn 1972, the Brevard school district had about 70,000 students. It added portables,as space programs increased. When the Apollo and other programs ended, the student population dropped about half. By 1980, schools were closed, and portable classrooms were r emoved. The shuttle started up, and the student population went back to about 72,000. The Brevard Commissioners and School B oard approved new schools and put portables back in place. By 2000, Brevard knew the shuttle would end, yet the county and school board continued building and replacing the portables with expensive additions. No w we have a multi-million debt for 25 years and empty seats. If the commissioners and School Board kept the portables, we may not be facing school closures. Deserving the benefits?I was talking to a representative who works for Social S ecurity, and I was very shocked when he said there are more than 50 million people, who receive Social Security benefits. I know for a fact that there is a man, who is living in Sweden, y et he is getting these benefits here in America. I am also sure that many who get these benefits don't even deserve them. I am a born American and now am disabled, and they made it very hard for me to get these benefits; and yet, many come to this country and get it at a snap of a finger. They use a false ID, or a family member, who is already living here will help them with their own ID. There is a family right here in Florida. Each family member re ceives these benefits and also gets food stamps, and they come to a soup kitchen and make trouble there. In my opinion, they don't even need to come to this soup kitchen. It is very sad to see what this great country has come to. S ince there are too many people on this and not enough workers, it is very difficult for them to check on all those who get these benefits. It is time for some type of change. Editor's note: The official Social Security Administration website,www.ssa.gov,states that approximately 57 million people in the United States received Social Security benefits during October 2012.This number includes approximately 40 million people,age 65 or older;more than 14 million disabled, under age 65,including children receiving Supplemental S ecurity Income on the basis of their own disability;and more than 7 million beneficiaries,who are neither aged nor disabled (for example:early retirees and young survivors).The total percentage of people receiving Social Security benefits in October 2012 in the United States was about 18 percent of the population.Note:Some recipients (about 5,000) are receiving both Social Security and SSI and are only counted once in the 57 million.Could not see the paradeI am writing to express my disappointment and disgust in some of the residents in my city. I am an 80-year-old woman. I attended the parade and sat on a chair on the curb, as many other people did. As the parade began, many children, teenagers and adults broke away from the curb and stood in the street about a foot away from the moving floats, thus blocking the view of the parade from us on the curb. N ot only did I see this (as) dangerous for the little ones trying to get the candy being thrown from the floats, I saw the many rude and thoughtless people we have in our city. I wonder if candy is that important. The police did nothing to keep people back, as they have in previous years. I could not tell who or what was riding or moving in the parade.Education cuts on the ballotIt amazes me that the people, who are actually admitting that if they had known the education cuts would have affected them directly, would have voted for it. So in other words, they voted against it on the assumption someone else would be impacted.Unbelievable. As far as I'm concerned, anyone who voted against it should not be allowed to protest, petition, criticize or complain about any of the proposals being made. And then to blame the school board for not being specific about where the cuts would be made, take responsibility for y ou own actions. That's a lesson today's youth needs to learn.Soldiers and the $1 billIt is difficult for me to believe this, but this morning I learned that the U.S. Army is considering punishing a soldier if he attempts suicide. What great mind thought that one up? Are they planning to punish him for not succeeding? Those poor men are going through hell, so some politician or general can sit on their duff and propose insane things like that. Another thing our "great minds" are proposing is doing away with the $1 bill. That's sounds like collusion between our Congress, the Wall St r eet "scum" and the credit card companies, also probably the metal-mining interests. They have already taken (away) the incentive about saving at a bank.Ta lking about people's drivingThe other day, we had a gas leak on Highway A1A, and all the traffic had to go into one lane. Ev eryone was being pretty patient, except for one woman in the right lane, who went whipping by very quickly and tried to cut me off and wouldn't let me over. And, as we were driving, we had to drive around. She never gave a signal and made a u-turn, because she was very impatient. S he had a lot of religious stickers on the back of her car. I won't name the church, but it is a large local church. And I thought, "Is that her religion that she gave me the finger' twice, because she had to make a u-turn, because she was impatient and could not wait?" I think people should learn a little patience with traffic. You are not going to get anywhere quicker by cutting your car in front of somebody. P atience is a virtue.Put up your made in the U.S.A.' flagsI am one of these people who try really hard to buy "made in the U.S.A." products. I was looking for flags the other day, and I finally found some that were made here, as opposed to overseas. The other thing, as I was coming into Cocoa Village, I saw a sign that said "Made in America by Native Americans." This is a wonderful idea. I am glad to see that people are promoting this. M aybe if other shops put a sign out that they had "Made in the U.S.A." goods, they would get some business.Why have the rates gone up?There have been no hurricanes to hit Florida and cause any damage in the last seven years. So why was my insurance raised twice as much as it was last year; and last year, it was raised twice as much as it was the year before that? I can't understand it. They are making so much money. They doubled my insurance. What they really want is for me to take less coverage, so they have to pay out less when they are making all this money. The ones up in New York have to payout something. Sure, but why should we have to payout anything? They call us the "hurricane state." We haven't had a hurricane for a long time. Look at Louisiana and New York. They should be called the "hurricane states," not us. This is about the Postal ServiceM aybe they should stop mail service on Saturday. It won't solve all their problems, but it will help. A lot of us don't have email, googily goo, and tweet and T witter and that sort of stuff. I'm 82. We don't want the United Parcel Service delivering our mail.It's not the pool industryThis is in response to being ripped off in the swimming pool industry. As a pool repair company, myself, we were quite angry about the new standards, having to put in new, variable-speed pumps and all this other stuff. B ut, they rescinded that. So, it is only if you have new construction that you have to put in those variable-speed pumps or two-speed pumps. The only time in an existing pool is if the pool is worth a certain percent of the worth of your home. And replacing a pump is never within that standard. So whoever sold you that bill of goods that required you to purchase the new pump, and you were a homeowner with an existing pool, you did get ripped off. It is not the swimming pool industry that is ripping you off. It is the stupid statutes and the Florida Legislature.They have run away with our airwaysI wonder if there is anyone who can remember when radio and television were in their infancies. When we were told that the airways belonged to the people, when broadcasters could only lease the airways. There were heavy limitation put on broadcasters that they could only put 60 seconds of advertising at the beginning and end of an hour. No profanity. No lewdness. Their broadcast license could be re voked if they didn't follow that law. They have nibbled away at the public's ownership, that now y ou have 20 minutes of program time, and the rest is advertising. And 90 percent of the advertising is devoted to misleading tidbits that feed from one topic to another. So you find it difficult to separate them, visually or verbally.A lesson in EnglishI saw, the other day, both on TV and in a newspaper an incident where there was an emergency, and the caller to 911 could not speak English. There seemed to be an attempt to show the shortcomings of our 911 Emergency System. B oth articles seemed to imply that the 911 operator was at fault for not speaking Spanish. No doubt, the do-gooders will want the operator replaced by a bi-lingual person, and all future hires to be bi-lingual. Ne ver mind that the caller was probably an illegal. I spent a lot of time in Mexico in 1946, 1947 and again on sabbatical in 1975. In those time frames, I experienced no attempts by the M exican government, at any level, to accommodate me by them speaking English. I wasn't arrogant enough to expect it, and the Mexican natives I interacted with all enjoyed our attempts to exchange VIEWPOINTFRIDAY, DEC. 21, 2012 HOMETOWN NEWS WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM W e've been good girls,Santa!Shelby Hill of Indialantic, Lauren Walsh of West Melbourne and Amanda McCauglin of Indialantic tell Santa, Will Davis of Suntree, why they've been good girls this year at the Junior League of South Brevard's Festival of Trees at the Viera Regional Community Center Saturday, Nov. 17.Andy Stefanek staff photographer Got something to say?

BREVARD With its more than 120-miles of navigable waterways on the I ndian River, Banana River and the Mosquito Lagoon, Br evard County has more boating opportunities than many states, and the statistics bear it out: Nearly 40,000 boats are r egistered annually. The Indian River Lagoon generates $630 million a y ear in income to local r esidents. Untold thousands of transient boats pass through Space Coast waters annually. And all of that boating activity also leads to another fact: The county is pestered by a problem that is just as persistent as barnacles derelict vessels. "S ince 2006, when we began the recovery program, we've removed approximately 150 derelict boats," said Matt Culver, boating and waterways program coordinator for the Br evard County Natural R esources Management Office. C urrently, the department is about halfway through its latest phase of the removal plan, which includes 20 boats, and should be wrapped up with the final boats in the current cycle by the end of the year, Mr. C ulver said. "Y et, even when we're finished with this funding cycle, there are still approximately 16 derelict boats out on our waterways that I'm aware of, and I'm sure that before we can get rid of them, they'll be others," he said. "It's a problem that just keeps on growing." Mr. Culver explained that numerous factors lead to the problematic vessels. F irst, among them is the sheer number of boats and boating activity. "W e have nearly 40,000 legally registered boats, plus numerous unregistered boats and literally untold thousands and thousands of boats that transit our waters each year," he said. and, while most of these boats are safe and secure, there are many that are not. All it takes is one storm and boats that are not secured properly are blown up on shore," Mr. Culver said. "If it's going to cost the o wner more to get the boat r emoved and fixed than it's worth, they walk away." The ability to walk away from a vessel that should be legally registered has become the hub of the problem, which consequently, impacts the taxpayers of Brevard. This phase of boat r emoval costs $42,500, the latest chunk of the nearly $250,000 spent on the r otting hulks that endanger sea life and other boats, Mr. C ulver said.

tion/NoticestoNavigation.a spx.WEDN ESDAY, DE C. 26 Winter camps scheduled at five locations: Br evard County Parks & R ecreation will host Winter Br eak Camp during the holiday break this year. W inter Camp is for children currently in kindergarten through sixth grade (ages 5-12). C amp will be offered at five locations in the south area: Viera Regional C ommunity Center, 2300 J udge Fran Jamieson Way, V iera Max K. Rodes Park, 3410 Fl anagan Ave., West M elbourne Ted Whitlock C ommunity Center, 1951 M alabar Road N.W., Palm Bay South Beach C ommunity Center, 501 O ld Florida Trail, M elbourne Beach South Mainland C ommunity Center, 3700 Allen Ave., Micco. The dates for camp are De c. 26-28, Dec. 31, Jan. 24 and Jan. 7. A ctivities at Winter Camp include sports, group activities, games and arts and crafts. R egistration for all camps is currently underway at each individual camp location. R egistration can also be completed at the South Area Parks Operations Office, 1515 Sarno Road, B uilding A, Melbourne. The fee for each week is $60 per child or $20 per day per child. Before and after care is available for an additional cost. F or more information, call the South Area Parks and Recreation Office at (321) 255-4400 or visit www.brevardcounty.us/Par ksSouth. C ounty's share of the boating registration funds. "C learly, if the boats were r egistered properly, we would be able to find the o wners and they would be liable for the cleanup and r emoval fees," Mr. Culver said. "But, what happens is someone will sell a boat to a friend. Then, before that person registers the boat, he sells it to someone else, and before too long, the paper trail is gone. Then, there are also the transient boats that just end up in Brevard County's waterways. All it takes is a storm to crop up, and we've got problems," Mr. Culver said. "M ost of the boats we're r emoving right now were driven aground during a noname storm that hit in O ctober of 2011. Of all the boats his staff has removed, it has only been able to locate the o wners of five or six of them, Mr. Culver said. "I n a couple of cases, the o wners have payment plans and are slowly paying off the r emoval fee," he said. "But, clearly that's the minority of cases." To help limit that problem, Mr. Culver said his office is working closely with Florida Fish and W ildlife officers and Brevard C ounty Sheriff's deputies to more closely inspect vessels that are moored on county waterways. Those boats have to be in working order and be re gistered," he said. "We're getting a lot more cooperation from those agencies to inspect the live-aboard boats to make certain they are sea-worthy and all the paperwork is up to speed. B ut, even then, it's not a 100-percent solution to the problem, Mr. Culver said. "I f a boat runs up on ground, and it's in bad shape and not worth fixing, we can only tell who owns it if the registration numbers are still on the boat," he said. "If those numbers disappear, it's hard to say who owns what. It's a problem we have and probably will have for some time to come." Mr. Culver estimates that since the program began six y ears ago, salvage workers have removed more than 400 tons of derelict boat debris, which is brought to shore by barge and ultimately taken to the Brevard C ounty Land Fill in Cocoa. Also removed from the waterways were more than 30 marine batteries and 300 gallons of fuel and oil. While each phase of the r emoval program is put out to bid, so far, one salvage company has won all of the contracts. Kevin Miller, o wner of Brevard-based A bsolute Marine Towing & S alvage, has won the bid for each contract. After he gets permits from the Florida D epartment of Environmental Protection and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, his team goes to work. "W e have a good crew, and we enjoy being out on the water," Mr. Miller said. "W e have an excavator with a claw bucket that we place on a barge. We get near the target boat, set out retention floats and go to work." Mr. Miller said the worst boats to remove are the older wooden ones, as they tend to break up and the crew has more pieces to deal with. B ut, he said, each vessel is different. "I f we find batteries on board, we take them out. If there is any gas or fuel, we pump that into holding tanks and send it to recyclers. We do try to salvage anything we can," Mr. Miller said. "We have gotten a couple of props and a mast or two. But generally, these boats are pretty well-picked ov er. They're mostly junk, which is why we're pulling them out of the water in the first place." While this phase should be wrapped up by the year's end weather permitting Mr. Culver said he is already preparing for the next r ound. As soon as these last few boats are removed, I'll start writing the grants to try and get the money we need from the Navigation District and the Brevard registration fees for the next phase," Mr. C ulver said. "There are 16 of these boats that I'm aware of right now." B ut by the time the money is appropriated, the contracts are approved and the permits secured, that number could easily change, he said. "H opefully, someday all our waterways will be cleaned up, and the only boats out there will be having fun," Mr. Culver said.

On Friday, Dec. 21, from 6 to 9 p.m., Don Soledad will debut his second album, "Soluna," during a free CD release party at The Avenue Viera. The style of music featured on the new album is contemporary flamenco, a popular genre of Spanish music. The album also has a new age classical influence, Mr. S oledad said. "M y vision for this album was to show the more traditional side of my playing, compared to my last album, which was more Rumba style," he said. "I also wanted to incorporate modern elements that I enjoy in other music. I feel that I was able to capture those factors in this album." He said that his inspiration for "Soluna" stemmed from special people and experiences in his life. "A few songs have been y ears in the making, while others only took a few days to compose," he said. "I guess it just depends on what you're going through in your life at the time when you are composing. One thing is for sure: M usic is much easier to write when you're going through some hardship or drama in your life." Mr. Soledad and his band, the Don Soledad Group, typically play at C osta D'Esta, a resort in Ve ro B each owned by the seven-time Grammyaward winning singer and songwriter Gloria Estefan. B ut at the release party, the band will play alongside other talented artists featured on the CD. "I 'm very excited to put on this show, as I will have my full band performing, as well as the new addition of musicians that played on the new album," Mr. S oledad said. In addition to playing at C osta D'Esta, the band r egularly plays at Matt's C asbah in Historic Downtown Melbourne, as w ell as Wolfgang Puck in Downtown Disney and V inz Wine Bar in Vero B each. S oledad released his first album in 2006, entitled "C amino de Seda." It was inspired by special places where he grew up in No r thern California. He said that making music can be a challenge, though he finds it rewarding. "I think what makes music, in general, unique is the personality each artist evokes into their o wn sound," Mr. Soledad said. "The difference between a musician and an artist is that an artist creates, and a musician copies, and some do it very well. To me, it's much more difficult to find your o wn way successfully than to copy what others have done before. A friend of mine actually called me one night, while driving home from his gig in Orlando. He said, I heard y our song on the radio tonight, and I knew it was y ou before they even announced your name.' And to me, that's what makes it all worth it."F estival of lights in MelbourneSpace Coast Light Fest is a family-oriented celebration, taking place through Dec. 31, at Melbourne's Wickham P ark, 2500 Parkway Drive, Melbourne.

U nder the Space Act Agreement, Epiomed will formulate the drug, called intranasal scopolamine, or INSCOP. Astronauts often experience motion sickness in space.

F or more than 31 years at its location on Aurora Road, o wner Joe Cagnina has adapted his pool hall with modern touches, all the while, keeping his facility fresh and modern. "W e kept up with the times by bringing in new things to constantly stay alive," Mr. Cagnina said. "Y ou have to keep advancing everything. We have one of the most modern facilities around, and we have r epeat customers because they enjoy coming to a place like this rather than going to a facility that is just onefaceted." F our years ago, Mr. C agnina updated his billiards club and added authentic arcade games, as w ell as other events for prizes that customers can play at their leisure. "W e give customers Visa gift cards for the arcade machines, as well as free soft drinks and coffee to all of the players when they come in," he said. "We also play bingo every other day. Right next to the arcade, we have the Player's Billiards Club, where people can come to shoot pool and entertain themselves." The Player's Billiards Club also offers a variety of tasty finger foods for customers, including chicken strips, fries, nachos and more. Mr. Cagnina said his arcade is also the only arcade that allows cigarette smoking indoors, which he said attracts customers from all over the county. As customers enjoy competing against one another in Bingo and other activities, music fills the establishment, creating a fun atmosphere for players and customers. "W e play music through the place, so it doesn't have this sterile environment of other arcades," he said. "It's not a sit-down, quiet, serious place. It features entertainment." The Player's Billiards Club is open everyday from 9 a.m. to 1 a.m. and is located at 1935 Aurora Road in M elbourne.

While campaigning for Brevard C ounty Sheriff in 2004, I promised the citizens that I would only serve two consecutive four-year terms. I kept my promise, and Jan. 7 will be my last day as your sheriff. I would like to use this opportunity to thank the many people who made my time as your sheriff very rewarding and helped us succeed as a Sheriff's Office. I am deeply indebted to the citizens of Brevard County for allowing me to have this honor. Our citizens care deeply about our community and have been very supportive of their Sheriff's Office. Although we have had some very challenging financial times, our citizens have stepped up to support us, time and time again. Operating one of the largest Sheriff's Offices in the nation can be a tough job, but it has been made much easier because of our citizens' trust and support. As an example, the outpouring of love and compassion from our citizens following the murder of our beloved D eputy Barbara Pill is something that will stay with me and the 1,400 members of the Sheriff's Office forever. We have also been blessed to have had a board of county commissioners and county manager that continuously place a high priority on protecting our citizens. While they have worked hard behind the scenes to ensure there was no wasted or unnecessary spending in the Sheriff's Office, they did not blindly cut public safety funding. There are many examples of law enforcement agencies across our state and nation that have been negatively impacted by poorly thought-out budget cuts, which greatly diminished public safety resulting in higher crime r ates. O ur commissioners have continued to state that their highest priority was to protect our citizens, and their actions have backed up their words. While there are many reasons Br evard County is safe and enjoys a low crime rate, the fact that our commissioners give law enforcement the tools to do the job is a critical factor in our success. I will never be able to adequately thank the men and women of our S heriff's Office. Working with these courageous individuals is the part of the job that I will miss more than anything else. To see the level of caring these people demonstrate on a daily basis is truly inspiring. I have been so fortunate to be part of a team of people who always puts the needs of others before their own. I am also grateful for a command staff that is second to none. These leaders are far from "yes men," and each of them have been outstanding leaders in their own right. There is no sheriff who could fail, who was surrounded by these incredible individuals. On a personal note, I would like to thank two people in my life who have had the greatest impact on me as a person. First, my wife, Yvette, constantly reminds me about what is important. As one example of many, about 10 years ago, I was driving with my wife to my very first political debate. I was unusually quiet and she asked me "Are you nervous?" I said, "Y es." Then, she said, "That's because y ou are more worried about yourself than the people you are supposed to serve. It isn't about you." I was never nervous about a public speaking engagement again. S econd, my pastor, Dr. Larry Linkous of New Life Christian Fellowship in T itusville, has had a profound effect on my life. I could not imagine having to face the challenges of being sheriff without him. He has brought me closer to God than I would have ever thought possible and improved my ability to pray for God's wisdom and guidance. It would be my hope that anyone in search of a truly anointed pastor would consider spending some time listening to Dr. Linkous. It will change their lives, as it has mine. While looking back, we have had great success in our Sheriff's Office. Fr om correcting jail overcrowding to targeting sex offenders to ridding our communities of violent criminals and r educing the crime rate, we have had a strong run. B ut when you consider the support we have had from our citizens and our commissioners, and couple that with the abilities of our extremely capable and caring law enforcement and corrections personnel, it is hard to imagine having anything but success. I will be proudly turning the reins of this Sheriff's Office over to Sheriff W ayne Ivey. I have every confidence that he will be a wonderful sheriff, who will enjoy many successes and will lift our agency to even greater heights. Thank you for the trust you placed in me to be your sheriff.

Additionally, communications personnel provide 911 call and dispatch services for three contracted cities within the county. W ith a staff of 43 specially qualified personnel, communications is the nerve center of calls for emergency law enforcement response and community assistance. Divided into two major functions call intake and dispatch, these 911 operators are crosstrained in all areas of the emergency communications functions, first aid and crisis intervention. B etween Jan 1 and Oct. 31, 2012, the Communications C enter answered a total of 97,517 emergency calls on the 911system. Additionally, the staff answered 243,747 nonemergency calls for service. Du r ing that same time period, Sheriff's Communications dispatched more than 341,861 calls to Sheriff's Office units and an additional 30,209 calls for the municipalities of W est Melbourne, Melbourne V illage and Melbourne Beach. Du r ing the 2010 legislative session, the state of Florida passed and implemented new r equirements for all emergency telecommunicators, including those working in the Sheriff's Office Communications Center. These new requirements mandate that all 911 emergency dispatchers are to be certified, according to a set of standards developed by the state, in conjunction with several public safety communications organizations. Pr esently, all of the Sheriff's 911 communicators are certified within this program and have undergone the r equired training and passed the state certification test. These new standards recognize the communications function as the vital first link in the emergency response chain and ensure the public is r eceiving the highest level of professional service. W ithin the past several ye ars, BCSO Communications has striven for continuous improvement in the call intake and dispatch arena. The nationally recognized standard of excellence for answering 911 calls is that 90 percent should be answered in five seconds or less.

The Brevard County Sheriff's Office became one of the first law enforcement agencies in the state of Florida to integrate a Domestic Violence Unit into its daily operations. The unit is comprised of four sworn deputies, who hold the title of agent" and four civilian "victim advocates." Each of the agents and advocates are assigned a particular jurisdictional area within the county, which is operated out of the Criminal Investigations Division. The Domestic Violence Unit's name is deceiving, as the unit not only investigates domestic violence; it also investigates the crimes of child abuse, child neglect, elder abuse and elder neglect. Domestic violence is on the rise across the United States, and Brevard County is no exception. Unfortunately, domestic violence impacts people of every age, r ace, sex and economic status. S tatistics show that each victim, who makes a report of domestic violence, has been abused an average seven times before making a report to law enforcement. Ev en more disheartening is the fact that victims of child abuse and elder abuse normally never make a report. The victims suffer in silence until the signs of their abuse can no longer be hidden. The children are either at such a young age they cannot speak or the abuse has just become a way of life for them. The elderly are in fear of being left alone or placed in a facility with inadequate care. These victims have no voice, no hope and are filled with fear. The Domestic Violence U nit becomes the voice for each and every victim; ensuring justice is served for all victims. The Sheriff's Office takes great pride in the commitment of the Domestic Violence Unit to each investigation, ensuring there is no stone unturned. Once the investigation is completed and submitted to the State Attorney's Office for prosecution, the agents assigned to the case work hand-in-hand with the State Attorney's Office to provide any and all information needed and to guide the victim and family through the process. Each agent and victim advocate keeps close contact with the victim from the beginning of the investigation, through prosecution and in many cases, after the case has been prosecuted. It is the goal of the Domestic Violence Unit to assist each victim and help them to transition their life forward.

www.BrevardSheriff.com 6Brevard County HOMETOWN NEWSBR EVARD COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICEDecember 2012 Keeping children safe in a world of technology W ould it surprise you to learn that one of the most dangerous threats facing parents today comes from home computers, laptops, tablets, smart phones and video game systems? There are a variety of issues that parents need to be aware of in order to be in a better position to protect their children. The following are some examples of threats to the safety of children that law enforcement is currently observing. S S exting: exting: T eens sometimes engage in an activity known as "sexting," where they will text or email nude photographs or videos to one other. It is not unusual for a relationship to sour and for the photographs to be posted publicly in an attempt to bully or humiliate the victim. Often, the exposed teen is too embarrassed to tell their parents and the bullying continues. This humiliation is often so unbearable for a child that it can tragically lead to severe depression, drug abuse and even suicide. Child por Child por nogr nogr aphy aphy : : It is not uncommon for teenagers to share information with each other about pornographic websites, which they can easily access after lying about their age. These sites often have "video chat r ooms," which allow the teens to video-conference with the "adult entertainer." These adult entertainers may even coax teenagers into performing a sex act, which can be covertly recorded using the teen's own webcam which may then be sold to child pornographers. P P edophile deception: edophile deception: A dult pedophiles sometimes masquerade as teenagers in an effort to gain the trust of unsuspecting teens. They use fake photos and profiles and work over weeks, even months, to build trust with the teen. Pedophiles are patient and may cultivate relationships with dozens of teens simultaneously. As the relationship progresses, the pedophile will begin r equesting photos and will encourage sexually graphic conversations. K eep in mind, the teenager believes they are falling in love with someone their age. The pedophile will eventually reveal his or her real age and will demand sexual contact. The victim's whole world is suddenly turned upside down and they don't know where to turn. f the teen does not comply with the demands, the pedophile will threaten to ruin the teen's life by sharing the explicit messages and photographs with their friends, their parents and school. It is not unusual for a teen in this situation to succumb to the pressure and threats or become suicidal, or both. There is nothing sadder for a law enforcement officer investigating a teen suicide to determine the teen felt driven to suicide because they had made "a terrible mistake" and were too embarrassed to approach their parents for help. S S o o , what can w what can w e do as par e do as par ents ents to better pr to better pr otect our childr otect our childr en? en? We can continue to educate ourselves about existing Internet threats. We can talk honestly to our children about the threats and make sure they know they can come to us about anything that bothers them. We can place our computers in a visible area of the home, which will discourage children and teens from visiting inappropriate websites. We can create rules for Internet use, such as when and where internet access is allowed. We can ask ourselves if providing our children portable devices such as laptops, tablets and smart phones with Internet access is really necessary? We can ensure we are aware of all w ebsites our children visit and that we have full access and knowledge of all passwords our children use for access. We can maintain awareness of all means of communication to include our children's gaming systems (ie: PS3, Xbox, etc.) and we can learn how to navigate these systems to scan for inappropriate material or access. There are software products on the market which can help you determine if your child has been observing inappropriate images on a computer.

www.BrevardSheriff.com 7Brevard County HOMETOWN NEWSBR EVARD COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICEDecember 2012 Cold Cases: never-ending investigations It is a sad fact that not all homicides will be solved. N ationally, in 2010, only 66 percent of the 15,241 homicides were solved. T ime is not an ally in homicide cases. W ith the passing of time, evidence degrades, witnesses move or die and memories fade. B ut it remains law enforcement's priority to solve all homicide investigations, whether active or "cold" cases. The Brevard County Sheriff's Office H omicide Unit is responsible for investigating all manners of death throughout the unincorporated areas of the county, as w ell as seven municipalities and towns, which depend on the Sheriff's services. U nit personnel are requested for all unattended deaths, suspicious deaths, suicides and missing persons, where foul play is suspected. The unit works closely with the Medical Examiner's Office, which determines the cause and manner of death. The Homicide Unit works closely with support units such as the Crime Scene U nit, which uses forensic science to document, collect, process and preserve evidence. The Sheriff's Office also coordinates its efforts with the entire law enforcement community with innovative initiatives such as Operation S.M.A.R.T (Specialized M ulti-Agency Review Team). This concept was created by FDLE (Florida D epartment of Law Enforcement) and is a directed effort to identify and prosecute the perpetrators of the various unresolved homicides. A fr A fr esh look at cold cases esh look at cold casesThe Brevard County Sheriff's Office and the law enforcement community work together as a team to complete a prescreening process. The pre-screening template is a 17page process that requires intricate knowledge of the case. It forces the assigned team to completely review the cold case homicide from every possible angle. If the re-examination of the case develops new leads, the team then works together to pursue the newly developed leads with additional resources to quickly and efficiently execute the necessary investigative steps. If the initial phase of Operation S.M.A.R.T. fails to resolve the cold case homicide, then the case is prepared for phase two. In this phase, the investigators prepare the case for presentation to a panel of experts in every discipline of investigation. The panel includes three to four veteran homicide investigators, crime scene experts, medical examiners, prosecutors, criminal profilers, statement analysis experts, criminal intelligence analysts, legal advisors, CrimeLine representatives and almost every forensic discipline available. The members of the panel are developed from all of the various agencies in the nine-county region. The members are considered by most to be experts in their r espective fields. The actual presentation of the case is executed through victimology, PowerPoint presentation, physical inspection of the evidence and witness or suspect testimony presentations. C old case investigation is a meticulous, painstaking undertaking, where prior investigations must be combed through, looking for any piece of evidence that might have been missed or could result in investigative leads due to new advances in technology. With the Sheriff's Office assigning a full-time investigator to pursue these cold cases, six of them have been solved.Some r Some r ecent success stories ecent success storiesR ecently, the Brevard County Sheriff's Office Criminal Investigations Division closed three cold case homicides: J J ohn G ohn G avin avin The first related to a 2005 death investigation, where skeletal remains were located by teenagers partially buried in a r emote area.

W ithin the past eight years, the Brevard County S heriff's Office Crime Scene Unit has grown in both size and capabilities. In 2004, the Crime Scene Unit consisted of five personnel, including one sergeant and four crime scene investigators/agents. The caseload placed upon the personnel was ov erwhelming. T oday, the Crime Scene Unit consists of 11 personnel, including one sergeant, nine crime scene investigators and one office assistant. With the addition of personnel, the caseload assignment has been reduced to a manageable level. The equipment used by the Crime Scene Unit for laboratory and fieldwork now consists of filtered drying chambers for drying wet or blood-tainted evidence; a filtered, humidity-controlled and timed fingerprint chamber; state-of-the-art alternate light sources assigned to each crime scene investigator; a self-contained filtered chemical chamber; and a robotic Sokkia Total Station for precise measuring/diagramming of scenes, along with other improved equipment. Through the use of a federal grant, a state-of-the-art, innovative mobile crime lab was added to the fleet. This vehicle provides a large platform from which to work extensive or large-scale crime scenes. It also has the capacity to carry all equipment necessary for virtually any crime scene response. The comprehensive vision for this important unit has provided a wellequipped and highly skilled Crime Scene Unit, whose members are in a much better position to serve the r esidents of Brevard County. www.BrevardSheriff.com 8Brevard County HOMETOWN NEWSBR EVARD COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICEDecember 2012 a thorough study of the victim to include their lifestyle, took even longer, but it paid off. The victim was identified as a 67-year-old man from P olk County, who was murdered in September 2005. Once identified, investigators were able to identify potential suspects and the actual location the homicide occurred. A forensic search of the location positively identified the suspects, and led to the successful arrest of the suspects. N N atalie B atalie B r r adbur adbur y y In S eptember 1987, the partially clothed body of Natalie Bradbury was found in a canal in Cocoa. A former honor student, Natalie lived transiently, accepting rides from strangers and truckers. She was an easy target for a criminal with evil intentions. All leads at the time were exhausted and regular review of the case within the next two decades brought nothing new. But with fresh eyes came the thought of testing old evidence with new technology in hopes it might yield some new results and leads in the case. And yield, it did. Investigators were able to determine the suspect, Robert Yokel. Yokel was a man with a violent criminal past, including murder. He died in a Florida correctional facility, while serving a life sentence for a different crime. W W arr arr en Logue en Logue Du ri ng 2010, the Brevard County Sheriff's Office received information from a witness, who provided substantial facts relating to the 2007 death of 56-year-old Warren Logue. The witness stated that Mr. Logue received his fatal injuries when he attempted to stop a burglary that was being committed on his property. As the suspect attempted to flee, Mr. Logue was run over by the suspect's vehicle. As the result of that information, agents located additional witnesses and eventually the truck believed to have been used as the murder w eapon in Illinois. H omicide agents conducted interviews in several parts of the United States, with the final witnesses and suspect in this case. As a direct result, an arrest warrant was issued in Br evard County and served on the suspect in Pe nnsylvania. The suspect, Steven Barton, is currently in the Brevard County Jail. R R amona Lee M amona Lee M oor oor e e On the morning of July 14, 1988, construction workers paving a northern extension of W ashingtonia Drive, west of Melbourne, discovered the body of a woman later identified as Ramona Lee Moore. The victim was found nude, beaten and left in a retention area which had filled with water during a recent rain. The M edical Examiner determined the cause of death to be drowning and classified the death as a homicide. Tw enty-three years later, the Brevard County S heriff's Office received a CODIS hit in reference to a DNA profile match from evidence r ecovered at the murder scene. The DNA matched the profile of Robert Edward Peek to an item of evidence located in the area of M oore's body. Du r ing 2012, Peek was interviewed by investigators in reference to the murder. Peek denied any involvement in the death of Moore and provided a DNA sample for comparison to any evidence from the case. Lab comparisons between this sample and evidence from the murder confirmed the previous DNA results. H omicide agents interviewed Peek, who had been detained at the Brevard County Jail on unrelated cases. As a direct result of this interview, coupled with the DNA findings, an arrest warrant was obtained and Peek was charged with the murder of Ramona Moore. These are some of the recent examples of how cold cases are being solved with new technologies and highly skilled investigators. These successes should serve as a strong deterrent to criminals that the days of unsolved homicides are coming to an end. At the 2012 Annual Award's Ceremony, Sheriff Jack Parker recognized those involved with solving these cases for their determination and expertise. Sheriff Parker said, "It is a very good feeling when we can meet with these families and tell them that the individual r esponsible for their loss is being brought to justice. The law enforcement personnel involved are absolutely determined to solve every case. Our citizens would be amazed to watch them work; they are a very dedicated group of people."

www.BrevardSheriff.com 9Brevard County HOMETOWN NEWSBR EVARD COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICEDecember 2012 It's GAMEOVER' for Brevard's criminals In Ma r ch of 2008, The Sheriff's Office worked with the Brevard County law enforcement community and created an innovative new program to target gangr elated violence and other violent criminal activity. The Brevard County Sheriff's Office, along with the police departments of Cocoa, Melbourne, Palm Bay, Rockledge and Titusville, the F lorida Department of Law Enforcement and the Br evard/Seminole State Attorney's Office partnered in Operation "GAME OVER" (Gangs and Major Epidemic of Violence Enforcement Response). GAME OVER is a proactive approach to targeting violent criminals and stopping violent activity that is committed throughout Brevard County. The concept of the operation is a multi-pronged approach that is inclusive of intelligence collection, investigative techniques and technology. The GAMEOVER Task Force utilizes resources from various participating agencies to identify and subsequently apprehend those violent offenders. The unit works alongside the State Attorney's Office and United States Attorney's Office to prosecute the various individuals for all criminal offenses, including violent crimes, probation violations, w eapons charges, narcotics violations and other associated crimes. As one of the most visible law enforcement efforts, the GAMEOVER Task Force is making a huge impact in the community, with 800 arrests since its inception. Among these offenders we re Br evard's most dangerous, which included homicide suspects, career criminals, sex offenders, home invasion and robbery suspects, fugitives from justice, as well as individuals considered to be the "most wanted" throughout the county. As an added bonus, many illegally possessed firearms and weapons have been removed from the streets. In addition to the successful arrest and removal of violent offenders from our community, other innovative programs have been established, such as "Graffiti-Busters," which uses jail inmates to reduce graffiti in the community. In many cases, graffiti is more than unsightly and is used by gang members to establish territories and r ecruit new members. To this point, the program has r emoved more than 3,000 incidents of graffiti. The Sheriff's Office was honored as the 2010 recipient of the prestigious "Davis Productivity Notable T eam Award of Distinction," sponsored each year by Pr udential Insurance and the Florida Tax Watch for innovative and cost-effective ways to reduce gang violence. The statewide award recognizes and rewards excellence in state government through partnerships and cost-saving measures. To date, the Sheriff's Office Graffiti Busters program has removed more than 3,000 incidents of graffiti throughout the county. BCSO supports 2012 United Way Campaign As a result of the generosity of the Br evard County Sheriff's Office members and our community sponsors, our BCSO 2012 United Way campaign was able to break BCSO's all-time record in giving and raised more than $224,000! What makes this total even more special is that more members of the S heriff's Office participated than ever before. The majority of BCSO members personally participated, contributing more than $82,000! Last year, the Brevard County Sheriff's Office was recognized as the topperforming sheriff's office in the state, r aising more than $137,000 for the U nited Way. We have every confidence that this y ear's campaign will place us once again firmly in the top spot for the state. On behalf of Sheriff Jack Parker, I would like to express my gratitude to all the members of our Sheriff's Office, as well as our community sponsors for their generosity. BCSO Chief Deputy Paul Drinkwater also did an outstanding job above last year in helping us reach this r ecord by organizing two special event golf tournaments. In addition, I'd like to personally thank this year's Brevard County Sheriff's Office United Way co-chairman Ma j. J ohn Mellick, as well as the following BCSO Campaign team leaders: Ma j. V ic DeSantis, Lt. Brandon Lanza, Lt. Mike Scully, Lt. Alex Herrera, Lt. J oseph Jenkins, Lt. Robert Cullen. Sgt. S teve Fernez, Sgt. Michelle Patrick, Agent Brandon G ish, Jail R ecords manager Jessica Vanatta and administrative assistant Ma ry M addox. D ue to generosity of our S heriff's Office employees and community partners, our U nited Way of Br evard will continue to provide the critical services needed to people across our community.

www.BrevardSheriff.com 10Brevard County HOMETOWN NEWSBR EVARD COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICEDecember 2012 Aviation Unit reaches new heights The Brevard County Sheriff's Office A viation Unit has made great strides since 2005. F irstly, the unit acquired a set of fixed floats that attached to the training aircraft, allowing the aircraft to "land" on water. The need for this type of aircraft was necessary due to the increased number of water-related calls that the Sheriff's helicopters were responding to. When needed, Brevard County Fire R escue paramedics stand ready to ride with the deputy sheriff piloting the chopper. The attached floats allow the aircraft, which is named "Star Fish" to provide the ability to rescue people in places not accessible by other means. This helicopter has saved many lives since it was placed into operation. D ue to the extreme dangers of performing water rescues from the air, the A viation Unit seized an opportunity to train on-crew deployment into water with Patrick Air Force Base's 920th Rescue Squadron. The Aviation Unit is also trained in basic water life saving techniques with Br evard County Fire Rescue's Ocean R escue Unit. W ithin three months of the floats being installed, "Star Fish" had its first water rescue. The Sheriffs Aviation Unit received a call of a boating accident at the entrance to the St. Johns River on Lake W ashington. The call indicated two airboats had collided, partially submerging both boats. Se veral people were reported injured, one critically. "Star Fish" was called to respond, as the scene was unreachable by land. W ith a Brevard County Fire Rescue paramedic on board, the most critical patient received immediate advanced medical care and was transported from the scene to an air ambulance and flown to the trauma center. B ecause of the increase in these types of calls, the Aviation Unit has begun training paramedics with Breva rd C ounty Fire Rescue Station No. 43, also located at the Merritt Island Airport. The paramedics are versed on how to respond, provide in-flight services and safely operate around and in the float aircraft. This training ensures the future success of the aircraft and will result in the saving of many more lives. In Ap r il 2005, the Aviation U nit purchased a 10,000gallon double-wall fuel tank. This made fueling much safer for the Aviation U nit personnel. Pr ior to this, the unit was purchasing fuel, storing it in a used 8,000-gallon trailer, transferring it to a 600-gallon fuel truck and then fueling the Sheriff's aircraft. A new hangar was built for the Aviation Unit at the M erritt Island Airport, which replaced a hanger that was falling apart. The construction of the new hangar not only kept the aircraft and parts safer; it saved more than $1 million in rental payments of the term of the previous lease. The Brevard County Sheriff's Aviation Unit has been nationally recognized perhaps more than any other law enforcement aviation unit in the country. The "FLIR Vision Awards" honors the finest aviation operations out of hundreds of submissions each year. To be recognized once with this prestigious award is rarity for even the best aviation units. Brevard's unit has been r ecognized in the top three on four different occasions in the past seven y ears: in 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2012. This unit is truly a cut above the rest and its members are fortunate to be serving Brevard County. Within three months of its new fixed floats being installed, "Star Fish" had its first water rescue. The Brevard County Sheriff's Office has equipped its helicopters with specialized tracking equipment, designed to locate missing persons who wear a personalized wristband that emits a unique radio signal. When caregivers or city police agencies notify the Sheriff's Office that the person with a Project Lifesaver wristband is missing, a Sheriff's helicopter and search-and-rescue team respond to the wanderer's area and start searching with the mobile locator tracking system. S earch times have been reduced from hours and days to minutes. In more than 1,000 searches with this program, there have been no reported serious injuries or deaths. Recovery times average less than 30 minutes. The wristbands can be used for people with Alzheimer's disease, Down syndrome, autism, etc. A special thank you goes to the members of Brevard County TRIAD who helped to implement and market the program, the reliable rapidr esponse partnership with law enforcement aiding victims and families suffering from Alzheimer's disease, Down syndrome and autism.

www.BrevardSheriff.com 11Brevard County HOMETOWN NEWSBR EVARD COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICEDecember 2012 Marine Unit makes waves, saves in Brevard W ith multiple hurricanes impacting Br evard County in 2004, Sheriff's personnel worked to improve its ability to r escue victims, especially in instances of n high water and high wind. As a result, the Sheriff's Office acquired from the military, four large six-wheel drive vehicles. They were purchased at a very low cost and were completely refurbished at the Sheriff's F leet Maintenance facility. T wo of the four have been fabricated with a protective steel enclosure on the back and outfitted with wheelchair ramps, allowing for easier loading of victims with special needs. The other two trucks have an open air bed, with bench seating and were used extensively for relief efforts to provide ice, water and food to victims in flooded areas, following the flooding from Tropical Storm "Fay" in A ugust 2008. These trucks are a very valuable r esource when needed, and I very much appreciate Mike Wimberly and his team at Fleet Services for ensuring we have the vehicles we need to help our citizens in when we need them," said Sheriff Jack Parker. In 2007, in an effort to reduce drowning deaths in Brevard County, the Sheriff's Office Agricultural and Ma r ine Unit initiated a new boating and water safety program that has been presented in many schools throughout the county, as well as numerous civic functions and other public events. This program includes the use of an interactive robotic boat, which captures the attention of children known as "Bobby the Boat." The program, funded by a grant through the state of Florida, allows deputy sheriffs to relay the importance of life jacket use, while on a boat, as well as talk to children and parents about water safety. So far, the program has been presented at more than 160 events to more than 14,000 children and adults in Brevard County. In addition to increased emergency situations, the hurricanes of 2004 r esulted in the sinking or partially submerging of hundreds of boats in F lorida's lakes and rivers. M any of these boats were abandoned by their o wners and laid just under the water's surface, becoming a dangerous hazard for unsuspecting boaters. Pr ior to 2006, only the Florida W ildlife Commission had the authority to classify vessels derelict, which, due to its limited resources, could not keep up with the massive number of boats impacted by the 2004 storms. As a result, the law expanded to also allow counties and municipalities to classify vessels as derelict, so that they could be legally removed from waterways in the state of Florida. Br evard County asked the Sheriff's Office for help. As a result, the Sheriff's Agricultural and Marine Unit partnered with FWC and worked together to identify and r emove the vessels. To this point, more than 70 derelict vessels have been identified and r emoved from Brevard's waterways, as a result of this partnership. The hurricanes of 2004 resulted in the sinking or partially submerging of hundreds of boats throughout Florida's waterways. F ollowing the 2004 hurricanes, BCSO acquired from the military, four large sixwheel drive vehicles to enhance Search & Rescue efforts. "Bobby the Boat" is an interactive robotic boat that teaches children about water safety.

Agents focus on detection, enforcement and citizen awareness and actively conduct awareness presentations with community businesses and Br evard County Waste Management to inform them regarding va r ious items that may indicate the presence of a lab. Agents also partner with local, state and federal law enforcement to streamline lab processing and cleanup. To date, these efforts have proved extremely successful and have greatly minimized the impact and cost to the residents of Brevard County.The Facts: Clandestine labs are found in many areas, including residences, barns, garages, businesses, apartments, hotel r ooms and vehicles. Approximately 30 to 35 percent of methamphetamine labs seized are in places where children live Children may have methamphetamine exposure simply because they live in or near this toxic environment The hazards to children living in these environments are numerous. They are at risk of: Inhalation of toxic fumes Chemical waste in play areas Exposure to drugs and drug users Exposure to needles and smoking pipes, razor blades and other paraphernalia Weapons left in accessible places and booby traps, meant to protect the operation Possibility of fire and explosion during manufacture The effects on the parent's behavior due to the drug use are: Parent or caregiver frequently has explosive temper leading to physical abuse due to irrational and brutal punishment Parent is awake for days at a time, followed by periods of sleeping for days, often leaving children poorly clothed, unfed, un-bathed and unsupervised Parent often associates with persons of questionable character Although many chemicals or associated precursors are common household solvents, cleaners and fuels, a clandestine lab can be suspected when large volumes of these chemicals are present and extreme caution should be exercised. If you have any concern that a methamphetamine operation may be present, contact your local law enforcement office for immediate assistance. Exposure to the chemicals or associated precursors may be potentially harmful or possibly lethal. Brevard County Sheriff's Office led the state in meth lab bustsBr evard County led the entire state of Florida for 2005, 2006, and 2007 in meth lab seizures. B ecause of the safety and protective equipment necessary to dismantle a meth lab and clean up the toxic chemicals, the Breva rd C ounty Sheriff's Office partnered with Brevard County Fi re R escue during these operations. Agents are proud to report that their efforts have been successful, and the number of meth labs in Brevard County is declining. However, Sheriff's agents continue to be vigilant and on the lookout for new labs, especially as previously incarcerated meth "cooks" are released from prison following their three-year minimum mandatory sentences. Br evard County S heriff's Office drug agents review the D epartment of Corr ections' monthly prison release list in an effort to monitor any potential for the r eappearance of labs.

N ana's House is a private 501(c)3 organization that is accredited by the F lorida Association of Christian Child Ca r ing Agencies (FACCCA). O pen nearly three years ago, Nana's H ouse provides a safe, secure and Christian home for neglected, abused, needy or abandoned children. As a private organization, Nana's Ho use receives no state funding and is funded entirely by generous businesses and caring individuals in the community. Likewise, the home is staffed by volunteers, with absolutely no paid employees. N ana's house receives legal guardianship of its children on a yearto-year basis, as needed, while parents work on getting back in their feet. All donations to the organization are tax deductible. In Ap r il of last year the organization added the Nana's House Thrift Cottage at 2540 Malabar Road in Malabar, as a way to raise additional funds for the nonprofit. The cottage assists the organization in raising funds used directly toward housing expenses, clothing, food and childcare needs. The thrift cottage hours are W ednesday through Friday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Saturdays, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The cottage is closed on Sundays and Tuesdays. In exciting news, cottage operations are expected to expand to a second location in the Malabar area in January 2013. N ana's House has recently acquired a second residence and will soon be providing living accommodations for an additional five at-need children.

In 1995, a residence was purchased and converted into a 16-bed facility, which would provide shelter for the victims and their children. In 2008, the 16-bed facility was replaced with a 24-bed facility, which was funded by the Department of Children and Families. Se r ene Harbor has expanded its role in Br evard County by providing shelter, emergency room intervention, transitional housing, counseling programs, a helpline, case management, educational programs and safety planning. Se r ene Harbor attempts to reduce the number of incidents of domestic violence through intervention, prevention, social change, education and community involvement. A dditionally, a Legal Advocacy Program was designed to assist those who seek legal services or police intervention in regard to domestic violence. These legal rights include providing information about domestic violence, repeat violence, dating violence, civil court proceedings, criminal court proceedings, injunction for protection orders and emergency hotline numbers. It is for these reasons that the Brevard C ounty Sheriff's Office strongly supports the efforts of Serene Harbor and its mission to assist the victims of violent crime. The need for emergency services has never been greater, but during a time of economic difficulty, the resources needed to assist have diminished.

www.BrevardSheriff.com 15Brevard County HOMETOWN NEWSBR EVARD COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICEDecember 2012 Staying safe aganist identity theft and fraud I dentity theft is the fastest-growing crime in the world and has the ability to impact each and every one of us. T en years ago, during "Crime Prevention" discussions, we informed citizens that identity theft was the fastest-growing crime in the state. Se veral years later, we would inform our citizens that identity theft had become the fastest-growing crime in the country. T oday, unfortunately, the Federal Bu r eau of Investigation and the Federal Trade Commission have named identity theft the fastest-growing crime in the world. In fact, a recent study by the Federal Trade Commission revealed that identity theft is the No. 1 crime that concerns consumers. Of equal concern, far too many of our citizens are either unaware that identity theft can target them or are not sure what to do to protect themselves. One of the most alarming statistics related to identity theft is that only one in 700 identity thieves is actually identified and punished for his or her crime. While identity thieves primarily target our seniors, stealing their life savings and retirement funds, they can also target anyone of any age. Throughout our lives, we are taught to be protective of our "good names," and credit and identity-thieves target both. While technology plays a major r ole in the increased number of cases of identity theft, it is not the sole driving force behind the epidemic that is occurring. The economy, as w ell as other factors, has given rise to new methods of not only stealing a person's identity, but has also creating new methods of using the stolen information to commit a crime. To day's identity thieves not only use our information to target our credit, but also to commit employment fraud, government benefits fraud, insurance fraud, mortgage fraud and even tax-return fraud. While today's criminals continue to utilize traditional measures to steal our biographical information, technology has unintentionally created new abilities to target victims and steal their identities. The more common and traditional methods of stealing your identity can be characterized as: Garbage Collection Mail Theft Burglary ScamsT echnology has also created theft methods such as credit card-skimming, data breeches and computer intrusions, making it almost impossible to completely protect our selves from the various methods used by high-tech criminals. We can no longer afford to believe that shredding our garbage and not giving our social security number to everyone is enough to protect us against identity theft. T oday's criminals take our personal information from our homes, computers, bank accounts and social media to steal our identities. In today's fastpaced world, we have to worry about peer-to-peer" intrusions of our computers and those that target our Wi-Fi locations. While we can all agree that there is not a "silver bullet" that guarantees we don't become the victim of identity theft, there are certain steps you can take to protect you and your family from exposure. In law enforcement, we w ear a bulletproof vest that helps to protect us from harm. By following the below steps you can put on your protection against identity thieves: Request an annual credit report (www.annualcreditreport.com) Shred everything (envelopes, documents, magazine covers, etc.) Only mail from locked mailbox locations Protect your home from burglary (bolting your safe to the floor) Never allow anyone to walk away with your credit card Only utilize password-protected W i-Fi spots (including in your home) Never respond to requests for your personal information Remove "File Sharing" from your computers Do not place personal information on Facebook "Just Ask" why a business needs y our social security number Utilize a "uni-gel" ball pen when writing checks The last layer of your protection is to be as vigilant of your personal information as you are over your homes and automobiles. To protect our homes, we use alarms, special lighting, and ask our neighbors to keep watch over our residences when we go on vacation. O ur cars are protected by alarms and locks; yet, we leave our identities unprotected. We must be very proactive and re-active in our approach to protecting our identities by aggressively watching over our information and being quick to recognize if we have become the target of identity theft. Protecting your identity is just as important as protecting your home, automobile and other personal belongings. Shredding your mail, documents, magazine covers and even envelopes c an save you from becoming a victim of ifentity theft.

As a result of the vision and guidance of Sheriff Jack Parker, coupled with the support of the Br evard County Board of County C ommissioners, we are now able to r eflect on many accomplishments improving jail operations and safety in the past eight years.In 2004, the jail had bed space for 1,041 inmates, but was seriously overcrowded with hundreds of additional inmates. The jail had been struggling with overcrowding for many years, but in 2004, it r eceived a lot of attention and became one of the county's big news stories when there were five jail suicides. As a result of the Board of County C ommissioners' concerns, its members enlisted the services of a consultant to r eview the needs of the jail and suggest corrective actions. The consultant recommended a twophase plan, which was expected to cost approximately $143 million. While the plan was well thought out, the prevailing thought at the time was that it was not possible to acquire adequate funding for phase one ($43 million), much less phase two ($100 million), without a successful referendum passed by the voters. This presented a problem, as it would not be the Board's first attempt at trying to address the long-standing overcrowding jail issue, with a voter referendum. The Board had attempted four previous jail referendums to alleviate the overcrowding issue, all of which failed. There was little reason to believe a fifth attempt would be successful. Although, failure of the fifth referendum was all but certain, it seemed County C ommissioners had little choice but to start preparing for another referendum. Fr om our perspective, failure would mean additional delays to any real, tangible improvements to the jail. The jail was in such dire straights; we were concerned any further delays would prove disastrous. Morale at the jail was at an all-time low, and staff was losing hope that it would see real changes in its lifetime. When Sheriff Jack Parker won the election in 2004, everything changed. I mmediately, Sheriff Parker presented a plan to the Board, where it could make substantial and real improvements to the jail at a fraction of the cost, preventing the need to go to referendum. H is recommendations included space for approximately 700 inmates, including safer housing for those with mental health and medical issues, lowcost tents for minimum-security inmates, expanded laundry, food preparation and booking areas and other important improvements. S heriff Parker's cost-effective plan was well-received by the Board and approved. The concept was well thought out and allowed work to commence immediately. All of the work has been completed, and the jail is a very different and much safer facility today because of the changes. There is no doubt Sheriff Parker will be leaving the Br evard County Jail in a much better position than the way he found it. We will miss him. www.BrevardSheriff.com 16Brevard County HOMETOWN NEWSBR EVARD COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICEDecember 2012 Jail Complex enhancements continue to improve The Brevard Jail Complex has undergone major renovations in recent years, featuring many of Sheriff Jack Parker's recommendations, which includes space for approximately 700 inmates, including safer housing for those with mental health and medical issues, low-cost tents for minimum-security inmates, as well as expanded laundry, food preparation and booking areas.

Under the supervision of Sheriff's Cr ew supervisors, inmates have removed more than 2 million pounds of trash from Brevard County's roadways. K eep Brevard Beautiful, a nonprofit agency, dedicated to the beautification of our r oadways and public spaces and the eradication of nonnative plant species has awarded the Brevard County Sheriff's Office its annual B eautification Award two times since 2006 for the great work performed by its jail staff and inmates. J ail Inmate work crews have also accomplished hundreds of landscaping and grounds maintenance projects since 2005. I nmates have been put to work, clearing out tons of ov ergrowth and invasive species from large areas in multiple cities, beautifying problem areas and reducing criminal activity. BCSO enlists jail inmates to perform a variety of landscape and roadway improvement projects. In F ebruary 2010, the Sheriff's Office implemented a Hydroponic Growing S ystem designed to grow vegetables without soil by utilizing a system of piping that provides nutrient solution to the roots of plants that are placed in a growing channel. Hy droponics is not only protective of the environment; it conserves both land and water. So far, 6,200 pounds of lettuce have been grown hydroponically. J ail staff is making efforts to continously grow more than 4,000 heads of lettuce, which will reduce jail food costs. A dditionally, the Sheriff's Office has implemented a small-scale aquaponics system, in which a 600-gallon tank is used to raise tilapia. The nitrogenr ich water from the fish tank is channeled through piping, which is used to fertilize more than 100 heads of lettuce. The first harvest of aquaponics lettuce was performed in May 2012, r esulting in 50 pounds of lettuce produced. Plans are in place to expand the aquaponics system, with the ultimate goal of increasing the production of lettuce, while also producing approximately 1,000 fish fillets per month for consumption at the Jail Complex further reducing jail food costs. Hydroponics system thrives The first harvest of aquaponics lettuce was performed in May 2012 at the Brevard County Jail Complex, resulting in 50 pounds of lettuce produced.

18Brevard County HOMETOWN NEWSBR EVARD COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE www.BrevardSheriff.com December 2012 New medical mental health unit increases jail safety Sheriff Jack Parker's tenure has featured a "tough on crime" approach to his law enforcement mandate, balanced by a pragmatic and appropriately compassionate perspective of individuals with special mental health needs. M any of his initiatives successfully manage offenders who, without proper monitoring and intervention, might experience adverse effects such as suicides, staff and inmate injury. S heriff Parker's concepts have been innovative, creative and successful. In addition to creating a safer jail environment, many of his mental health initiatives have also resulted in significant cost-savings as a result of their implementation. An important component of his jail expansion plan was the creation of a new medical/mental health facility, which was designed primarily as a dormitory housing unit with on-site corrections deputies, which dramatically reduced the typical operational costs that would have been required by more traditional jail designs. The architectural design not only resulted in significant cost-savings, but created a safer corrections environment that increased inmate visibility and reduced the likelihood of adverse inmate incomes, such as suicides. In the four years since its construction, no suicides have been experienced in this housing unit, although it houses individuals with the most serious mental illnesses and highest potential suicidal risk. We are very proud to have been a part of the many improvements made to the jail facilities and mental health programs, r esulting in a safer environment for jail inmates, with mental health and medical issues and the staff responsible for their ca re. Mental health facility provides evaluation and treatment of inmates with emotional and mental health problems. Sheriff's work farm produces results Inmates make own uniforms, save tax dollars The Brevard County Sheriff's Office Wo rk Fa rm provides supervision, structure and guidance for offenders sentenced by Brevard judges. I nmate work crew labor is used to complete various projects for the betterment and beautification of Brevard C ounty. In many cases, judges sentence offenders to work their sentence off on their days off from their normal employment. That way, the individual can serve his sentence, but still maintain employment, r educing their chances of getting arrested again. The program saves dollars over traditional confinement, in which taxpayers must pay for meals, housing and medical services. Since 2004, the teamwork and direction of the Sheriff's Inmate Wo rk Cr ew supervisors over those sentenced to the Work Farm have led to the harvesting of approximately 42,000 pounds of potatoes, onions, collard greens, okra, corn, squash, zucchini, snow peas, carrots, turnips and cucumbers from the fields, which were used by the jail complex and local food banks throughout Brevard County. Field vegetable production has steadily increased each year since 2004, and a 30,000square-foot area has been tilled for additional crop production. In M ay 2007, the Sheriff's Office initiated an Inmate Sewing Program. The inmates are now responsible for making all inmate uniforms, sheets, mattresses and laundry bags. R epairs are made to any ripped uniforms or mattresses to further extend their use. The inmates work with several different types of industrial sewing machines, while learning all the basics of commercial sewing. The skills they learn, coupled with the improvement in their work ethic, place them in a better position to gain employment upon their r elease. The success of this program saves Br evard County taxpayers approximately $45,000 a year.

We have successfully found 200 dogs forever homes. The most recent class of dogs has all been adopted, and a new class will begin training in a few weeks. Visitwww.BrevardSheriff.com for additional information, or contact Maj. Greg Robertson at (321) 690-1504. Paws and Stripes program: a paws'able solution In S eptember 2006, the Sheriff's Office implemented an innovative program that matched unadoptable dogs with specially trained jail inmates. U sing inmates to give obedience training to dogs to make them more adoptable and r educing the number of dogs being euthanized in Brevard County was a positive outcome for all, and the program has proven to be a great success. S ince the inception of the Paws and Stripes program, 208 dogs have successfully completed the program and have been adopted into loving homes. The affect the dogs have had on the inmate population has been remarkable and has created a calming affect among the inmate population. In many cases, inmates have said their time working in the program was lifechanging and gave them purpose during a tough time in their lives. The Paws and Stripes program is operated without tax dollars, thanks to a special group of residents, known as the Paws and Stripes G uild, who work hard to raise donations for the care and feeding of the dogs. Du r ing the program, inmates are taught how to properly train the dogs and care for them. Upon completion, inmates are validated as recognized pet care technicians by the American Boarding Kennels Association and r eceive a certificate for completing the American Red Cross Pet First Aid course, making the inmates more employable.

Sex Offender Unit: Committed to child safety In r esponse to the issues relating to sexual offenders, the Brevard County Sheriff's Office unveiled an innovative approach of monitoring, registering and tracking sexual offenders, with the implementation of the S exual Offender Registration and Tracking U nit (S.O.R.T.) in December 2005. This all-encompassing unit became r esponsible for the registration of all sex offenders in Brevard County, as well as verifying their addresses, monitoring their movements and enforcing the statutes of the state of Florida. W ith more than 600 offenders and predators in Brevard County at that time, this was a major undertaking. Additionally, this list was expanded to investigate sexual exploitation against children via the Internet. A multi-faceted approach was outlined for the S.O.R.T. Unit at its inception. In order to meet the public needs of notification, the unit searched for the most effective service available to facilitate a time-sensitive notification system. The BCSO then became the first Sheriff's Office in the state of Florida to partner with Offender Watch Systems to develop a webbased notification program, along with a mail-out system, to reach as many citizens as possible. T oday, Offender Watch has partnered with law enforcement agencies across the country, to include the Florida Department of Law Enforcement. This service is provided throughout the entire county, for every jurisdiction and generates a mailing using postcards to notify citizens in the immediate area affected by the movement of the offender. S ince inception, hundreds of thousands of notifications have been directed to the citiz ens in Brevard County. The program also offers the public the ability to sign up for free electronic notifications of sex offenders in the community by visiting the BCSO website. This will link users to a searchable sex offender database and safety tips for community awareness. The service provides immediate email alerts to citizens when a known sex offender moves into an area of concern. Thousands of Brevard's citizens have taken advantage of this service at no charge. M aking sure sex offenders are where they say they are and are abiding by the rules of their release is a challenging, but important task. As a result, law enforcement agencies work in partnership with the Sheriff's S.O.R.T. Unit and probation and parole units to ensure offenders are in compliance. The S.O.R.T. Unit relies heavily upon prevention and awareness. The unit members provide community-based training, regarding child safety tips on using the Internet. The training encourages parents, teachers and guardians to be vigilant in their childcare efforts and teaches them how sex offenders access children using the Internet and other means. The Sheriff's Office is also proud to be a part of a multi-jurisdictional task force, composed of members of the Sheriff's Office and the U.S. Marshal that targets sex offenders, who are wanted on either sexual exploitation charges or those who have absconded from probation or registration conditions, originating from Brevard County. This partnership continues to provide successful results, as evidenced by the arrest of Ha rv ey Wayne Taylor, who was to appear on an upcoming episode of America's Most W anted, due to the serious nature of his original conviction, coupled with the lengthy efforts by the Sheriff's Office to locate and arrest him. T aylor, who had been wanted since 2004 for violation of probation, was an absconded sexual predator, who had been non-compliant with his court-ordered conditions. Taylor's probation related to aggravated sexual child abuse, involving multiple counts of sexual battery on children younger than 12. T aylor, along with an adult son, was arrested at a residence in Newtonville, New Jersey, on Ma r ch 9, 2012. A variety of operations have been conducted to keep sex offenders in check. One such operation, "Operation Safeguard," has been conducted for the past four years, in which multiple law enforcement agencies throughout Brevard County have joined with Pr obation and Parole to check hundreds of sex offender residences on Halloween to ensure there were no unsupervised contacts with children. B ecause of the worldwide capability of the I nternet, an immediate partnership was forged with the International Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC) and the Department of Homeland Security formerly known as (ICE). Locally, DHS and S.O.R.T. have also formed a Child Exploitation Task Force. These partnerships have continued to increase as the S.O.R.T. Unit now also partners with the F.B.I. as part of the Innocent I mages Task Force. The efforts of the Brevard County Sheriff's Office have been credited by the U.S. Attorney's Office as enabling the Middle District of F lorida to prosecute the highest number of cases in the nation. Du ri ng 2011, 114 offenders were charged, as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative of the Department of Justice designed to protect children from sexual exploitation and abuse. The ICE/BCSO Task Fo r ce significantly contributed to this effort in terms of the number and quality of cases presented for prosecution. This task force identified and rescued eight children, who we re suffering from sexual abuse and exploitation. They investigated and arrested more than 60 defendants for the production/distribution and possession of child pornography and for sexually exploiting children online. T wo of the defendants were registered sex offenders, and four cases involved the use of a facility in interstate commerce to arrange for sex with a child. A wards and recognitionThe Guardian Brevard, Protect Our Children Inc., selected Sheriff's Agent Dan Ogden for the 2010 "Junny Award." The annual award recognizes the Floridian who has done the most to advance the cause of child protection. Agent Dan Ogden was the recipient of the prestigious 2010 Child Abuse Prevention Law Enforcement Award, presented by the Child Abuse and Prevention Task Fo r ce of Brevard County and the Brevard F amily Partnership. Agent Dan Ogden and Agent Michael S padafora were the recipients of the U.S. At torney's Office Law Enforcement Officers of the Year in 2008 for their investigative efforts related to child pornography and exploitation. In 2011, the entire unit received the award again for its investigative and forensic efforts involving these cases. Lt. Tod Goodyear of the Sheriff's Office received the 2012 Child A buse Prevention Law Enforcement Award for his creation and development of an Internet Safety/Anti-Bullying program that has been presented to more than 10,000 students throughout Brevard County in both public and private schools.

4S. BREVARD CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2013FOREVER YOUNG "I love music and love shaking my booty, so I thought, why not give it a try? After a month of Zumba classes, I had already lost 30 pounds." Vickie Mathis BREVARD At her heaviest, V ickie Mathis weighed 410 pounds. S he suffered from constant headaches and experienced pain in her back, legs and joints. The Port St. John resident knew she needed to make a change. "M y journey began when the doctor tried to hospitalize me a year and a half ago," she said. "I was already on medications for hypertension, and I was a borderline diabetic when I made this visit to her office. She wanted to hospitalize me immediately I begged her to allow me one month to work on this on my own. On that day, I decided that my life would be different because I was going to do things differently." Ms. Mathis' first steps to living a healthier life began with walking. "I first started walking around my block when it was dark outside," she said. "I was too ashamed of people seeing me in the daylight." Then, a friend suggested she try Z umba, a Latin-inspired form of exercise dance. "I had heard of Zumba, but I never even thought about trying it because it was a group exercise activity," she said. "However, I love music and love shaking my booty, so I thought, why not give it a try? After a month of Zumba classes, I had already lost 30 pounds." T oday, Ms. Mathis weighs 258 pounds a weight-loss difference of 152 pounds since August 2011. S he said her life has changed tremendously. Before, Ms. Mathis would eat candy and ice cream without hesitation; now, she makes conscious decisions about the types of food she intakes. And r ather than being the timid woman in the back of the classroom at Z umba, now, she is the instructor. "Z umba has impacted my life immensely," she said. "I don't look for parking spaces closest to the door of a business anymore. I can now reach down and tie my own shoes. I can stand straight up and see my toes. The simplest things have become the hugest components of my life." R osalind Prescott, who teaches Z umba classes at the Wickham Park S enior Center in Melbourne, said that Zumba also changed her life. After being a competitive collegiate athlete in basketball and a national karate champion post-college, sports was a huge part of her life. But a back injury put her out of sports and fitness for two years. "I gained more than 35 pounds and started to fall into depression," Ms. Prescott said. "I found my first Zu mba class being offered at a small gym in Rockledge. Although it was hard because I was out of shape and my muscles were not strong, it was the only exercise that I could modify to my level, and that I could do, which did not hurt my back. Plus, the energy, upbeat and exciting music and instructor were such good motivation to make me want to try again and come back for more." Ms. Prescott said that Zumba classes are beneficial because the workouts engage many muscles, often while the participant is blissfully unaware that he or she is incorporating traditional fitness moves like squats and lunges into dancing, which tones and tightens the body. The class gets your heart beat up so you can burn from 400 to 1,000 calories per class with one hour whizzing by," Ms. Prescott said. "I usually burn around 800 calories when I teach a class. Workouts that feel like work are hard to get excited about.

The Seaside Piecemakers Quilt Club, a Satellite Beach-based group of quilters who use their craft to serve the community, handmade 33 lap quilts for children in need. At the group's holiday luncheon in December, the quilts we re given to Brevard Recue Mission, a nonprofit aiming to break the cycle of homelessness among mothers and children in the area, as well as items that the organization were in need of. "(Brevard Rescue Mission) has almost run out of personal hygiene and cleaning items from their pantry," said J udy Pacificador, publicity chairwoman for the Seaside Piecemakers Q uilt Club. "The quilts will be given to the children for comfort during the upcoming colder months." F ounded in 1981, the Seaside Piecemakers Quilt Club, part of the National Q uilting Association, has 300 quilt makers spanning from Barefoot Bay to C ocoa. The club meets regularly with invited speakers and special classes at He r itage Isle Club House on the fourth W ednesday of each month, except No vember and December. From this group, about 10 smaller Quilt Circles meet twice per month at several Breva rd P ublic Libraries or quilt shops in the area, where the actual quilt making is performed. In addition to giving back to the community, members of the Seaside Piecemakers Quilt Club enjoy quilting alongside one another. "M embers seek an environment of sharing, encouragement, friendship, learning and community service," Ms. P acificador said. S he said that this year, the women r esponsible for creating the quilts for Br evard Rescue Mission had lots of fun, even while donating their own supplies and dipping into their personal bank accounts to complete the quilts. "H ours upon hours of sewing, both at the circle gathering and at home, is hard to quantify," Ms. Pacificador said. "B ut the good feeling of being able to help a community is evident, and it is the foremost motivation for these ladies to give of their time to the cause. That sense of reward is priceless." In addition to the quilts, Ms. Pacificador estimated that the cash donations, used to purchase items that Breva rd R escue Misison will need throughout the year, added up to more than $1,500. Each year, the club donates items to in-need organizations at its holiday luncheons, such as Daily Bread, Genesis House, Hacienda Ranch and more. "F or these Seaside members, who themselves may be on fixed incomes, their desire and generosity to contribute to this cause speaks volumes about their sense of giving and goodwill to all," Ms. Pacificador said. C urrently, the Seaside Piecemakers Q uilt Club is at its maximum amount of members at 300. The club invites interested applicants to join as space becomes available, via its website, www.seasidepiecemakers.com.

F or those looking to start a light fitness regimen, Ms. Mathis advises people to invest in a good pair of shoes that will offer the support they need to begin. In addition to Z umba, she recommends walking or swimming, as they are both safe, moderate exercises for overweight individuals. As for food consumption, Ms. M athis said she steers clear of breads, pasta, rice, potatoes and anything with sugar in it. Her diet consists of mainly protein: meat, vegetables, cheese and eggs. And for the first eight weeks of her weightloss routine, she only consumed water. "R eward yourself once a week with that cup of coffee that you gave up," she said. "Keep your mind on what you eat. My mind is pondering food all day long. I'm still addicted to food, but I only eat what will be beneficial to my health." Ms. Mathis said to overcome overw eight and unhealthy lifestyles, the hardest step to take is the first one: making a commitment to oneself to lose weight and get healthy. "I t has to be a personal decision," she said. No w, she said she feels the best she has ever felt in her life. At age 43,I feel somewhere around 25 years old,"she said."I am so proud of the plus-size woman that I am." Ms. Mathis teaches Zumba classes M onday through Friday at both C ome On Get Happy in Cocoa Village and Marta's Dance Studio on M erritt Island. "I use Zumba as a tool to reach out to people not only the overweight or obese, but to anyone who is looking to overcome any obstacles in their lives. The bottom line is that the mind has to be made up. You have to focus on what you want, and don't lose focus, even if you go off track for a spell," she said. On March 15, Ms. Mathis will set sail on a Zumba at Sea cruise on Ro yal Caribbean's Monarch of the S eas.

8S. BREVARD CountyHOMETOWN NEWSJanuary 2013FOREVER YOUNG Health and vitality with herbsHERB C ORNER Diet, exercise and rest have always been essential for the maintenance of good health. No w, more than ever, herbs are necessary for the maintenance of our health, especially with so much stress and toxicity from our environment. For thousands of years, plants have been used to increase energy, boost the immune system, provide nutrition, enhance mental clarity, increase physical stamina and to enliven the libido. There are thousands of plants that have these abilities, but for the sake of space and time, I have stopped at five. Astragalus, as an energy tonic herb, helps the body adapt to physical exertion and stress, and for people with low energy, it helps boost metabolism. It has been used for more than 4,000 years in China and it is still used now as an herb to strengthen the immune system, fighting bacteria and viruses. Astragalus is especially good for chronic weakness to the lungs or for those who have taken many antibiotics and are now susceptible to infections. G arlic also has the ability to fight bacteria that have become resistant to antibiotics; it also fights viruses, fungi, C andida and yeast. One of the reasons it can do this is because its enzymes detoxify the body of carcinogens. In the circulatory system, regular use of garlic can raise HDL's, lower LDL's, as well as lower triglyceride levels, and for many people, it helps lower blood pressure. Tu rm eric, when taken regularly, acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory; for some it works safer and much better than long-term use of cortisone because it protects the flora of the digestive system and the liver. Studies on Turmeric have shown it to be five times stronger than Vitamin E in its antioxidant properties and to be beneficial to dementia and high cholesterol. Be aware that a large amount of Turmeric inhibits blood clots; if you are taking anticoagulant medications, you need to talk to your physician. D andelion is a highly nutritious plant, one that is packed with iron, making it good for anemia. As a diuretic, it removes excess fluid from the body, but provides the needed potassium that can be lost when taking pharmaceutical water pills. Dandelion is also used to support the liver and gallbladder in the removal of waste products; this detoxification provides r elief for gout, eczema and psoriasis. G inseng is probably one of the most popular vitality-enhancing herbs. When used consistently, Ginseng helps the body adapt to mental and physical stress, increasing stamina and physical performance rejuvenating the body, mind and spirit. As an immune booster, it helps the body heal faster and more efficiently, promoting longevity by increasing your ability to r esist disease. It also enhances sexual stamina and desire and improves memory and learning skills by improving circulation throughout the body. It 's when we are free of toxins, r eceiving nutrients, that we experience energy and feel our best. With the amount of stress and toxicity we experience from day to day, now, more than ever, we should be protecting our bodies with herbs.

The taste is oneof-a-kind, and cheap imitators will never fool a true barbeque connoisseur. I ndialantic's Coach's Grill will never be considered an imitator. Located on the southern side of F ifth Avenue, Coach's Grill offers truly authentic and delicious Carolina barbecue, where even the biggest barbecue critic can rejoice. F or nearly two months, owner Ricky Michaelsen has offered fresh dishes to his customers in a true Carolina style, something he said no one else in Brevard can offer. "P eople have other styles (of cooking barbecue), where they want to cook this and smoke that, but real Ca r olina Barbecue is roasted like a pig-picking," he said. "We use all of the pig because every bit of the pig is good. Our meat, which is apple cidervinegar based, comes fresh and delivered straight to the Melbourne Airport every three days." Mr. Michaelsen, who has owned five other restaurants in Virginia, named his restaurant after his 31 y ears of experience, coaching basketball. During his time at Old Dominion College in Virginia, he and his teammates won the Division II N ational Championship. Currently, Staff photo by Chris FishRicky Michaelsen, owner of Coach's Grill in Indialantic, offers customers authentic Carolina barbecue.See DINING Page 10 725-3990251 Florida Ave. € Melbourne www.MelbourneTerraceRehab.com033322Inpatient & Outpatient Rehabilitation Services € Inpatient &Outpatient Rehabilitation € € Stroke &Cardiac Recovery € € Pulmonary Therapy € € Infusion Therapy € € Wound Care € € Restorative Therapy € € Nutritional Therapy € € Lymphedema Therapy € € PainReduction Management € Melbourne Terrace provides skilled rehabilitative services for those patients who require skilled needs in order to return to their prior level of function.Put A Little Spring In Your Step 033320

In addition to the many restaurants he operated, Mr. Michaelsen also o wned a catering business. It was through his catering business, he said, that Mr. Michaelsen truly realized the impact Carolina Barbecue had on his customers. "M y catering business used to cater auctions for towing companies, where they would have people come and bid on wrecked or abandoned vehicles," he said. "At the auctions, 200-300 people would come and we would sell about 300-500 sandwiches. They couldn't get enough." At C oach's Grill, diners can choose between a variety plates served with fries and slaw, including a barbecue sandwich or barbecue wrap, Norfolk hot dogs and cheese dogs, cheeseburgers, a pork loin sandwich and a BLT sandwich. Mr. Michaelsen said Norfolk dogs are another specialty his restaurant offers, and they are served up fresh with onion, mustard, homemade sauce and chili all atop a steamed bun. Along with the barbecue and hot dogs, Coach's Grill offers one of the best cheeseburgers you'll ever eat. They have more grease than most cheeseburgers, but not enough to get messy on your shirt," Mr. Michaelsen said. "It may not be the healthiest, but it makes a great burger." F or breakfast lovers, Coach's Grill also offers the breakfast essentials, including eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, pancakes and a variety of breakfast wraps. C oach's Grill is located at 147 Fifth Av e ., Indialantic and is open from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. F or more information,call (321) 541-7715. New technologyREHABILITATION The new year always brings a multitude of Baby Boomers into a personal pledge for wellness. Each year, technology continues to make rehabilitation and fitness just a little easier. The latest exercise equipment uses smart card" technology. Now, you don't have to remember your last workout routine. By sliding a card into the exercise equipment's monitor, the machine automatically sets up the previous repetitions and resistance. The Smart Card system is for exercise planning, recording, feedback and instructions. W orking out with air resistanceF or the active and aging population, air resistance is the latest advent. It's been proclaimed to make exercise movement feel smoother and safer to execute, and the workout is more muscle specific with less wear and tear on the joints. Machines designed for lifestylesB ecause the human body moves in all planes with varied resistances, the newest technologies operate tridimensionally through any possible movement patterns. Rehab is not just lifting a dumbbell anymore and r epeating three sets of 10.Therapeutic safetyM any seniors can't tolerate their entire joint's range of motion. Those who are fresh out of surgery or who have painful arthritic restrictions can now rely on the latest built-in restrictors. Movement limits can now be set for each person's comfort and tolerance. The latest equipment has heart r ate monitors built into the handlebars to help determine safe tolerance to exercise. With advanced brake technology found on newer recumbent elliptical machines, there's less jarring of movement and it is safer for joints to handle an increase or decrease in r esistance. Easier accessR ehabilitation for seniors mandates comfortable and larger seats that slope slightly upward for maximum comfort. The other improvements are as simple as ergonomically designed swivel seats and sloped handlebars that also swivel and are designed to increase ease of access. Space-age technology from NASAThe latest, newest treadmill called the AlterG, encircles the body from the waist down, with differential air pressure technology. Therapists can actually calibrate the precise un-weighing of the body up to 80 percent. This means that if a patient can't walk, due to pain with weight bearing, then w eight is taken out of the equation. It's also connected to a viewing monitor to allow the therapist to give instant cues for faster learning through the monitor's feedback. Because its lowimpact, many would say it's an improvement for seniors who want a more comfortable exercise experience.
