Lady Bulldogs reflect on success, look to futureMELBOURNE Winning a state championship title during one's high school career, while incredible, is a lofty goal for most. T wo state titles? A pipe dream. How ever, that pipe dream is, remarkably, a r eality for several senior members of the Lady Bulldogs soccer team at Melbourne High School. S eniors Riley Collins and Alex Koeing are a part of M elbourne High history, claiming state championships during their freshman and senior years, r espectively. D espite her recent success, Riley, a forward for the Lady Bulldogs, started freshman year off on a sour note. "I broke my tailbone r ight before the season started," Riley said. "It was slightly bruised before, but I hit it during speed training and hurt it even more at a tournament in Savannah." After getting X-rays, Riley was informed that her tailbone had a slight fracture. "S ince I couldn't play, I managed the team freshman year," Riley said. T eam captain and center back, Alex, played all four y ears of her high school career. The thing about Riley is that she's always been such an impact player, so when she was hurt, it was really sad," Alex said. "Having her on the team this year was like seeing that old spark come back in her; it was so exciting." As team captain, Alex was given many responsibilities. "O ur team was really incredible, so I didn't have to be a disciplinary leader," Alex added. "It was more like, if anyone needed someone to talk to, I was W alk of Fame honors community advocates, leadersBREVARD Brevard celebrities and community leaders will be honored for their contributions to the S pace Coast community. On Saturday, March 9, E ckerd, formerly known as E ckerd Youth Alternatives, will host the 2013 Brevard W alk of Fame at the Holiday Inn Space Coast Convention Center in Cocoa. W ith the hopes of creating better alternatives for helping at-risk children and families, Ruth and Jack E ckerd founded the organization in 1968. S ince its establishment, E ckerd has served more than 150,000 children throughout the United S tates by providing lifechanging behavioral health, welfare programs and services. In 1997, Eckerd set up shop in Brevard County.

The event, which will be on Friday, March 1, at the S tudio Theater at the M axwell C. King Center for the Performing Arts in Melbourne, will feature the ninth annual "4 Under 40 Re cognition," an event that honors those in the community, while also recognizing the 2013 recipients of the "Rodney S.

The programs are a "collaborative effort among Breva rd C ounty Schools' Title One Program, local social service agencies and educational institutions of higher learning," Mrs. Rogers said. R ecognizing a need to honor those who give not only financial support, but their time, as well, Eckerd Br evard County established the Brevard Walk of Fame. There are many individuals, both celebrities and community leaders, who have made outstanding contributions to our community, who inspire tomorro w' s generations," Mrs. R ogers said. "By honoring these leaders, Eckerd raises awareness of the positive impact their efforts have made in the lives of others." R ecognizing only the most prominent and influential business and community leaders and celebrities of Br evard, Walk of Fame honorees are presented with a personalized Brevard Walk of Fame star. "A list of more than 100 individuals is compiled by the Eckerd Community A dvisory Council and narro w ed down through a rigorous voting process, based on community contributions and celebrity status," Mrs. Rogers said. "Being selected as a prestigious honoree is a testament to their leadership in their profession and their profound impact on the community as a whole." The exceptional 11 who will be honored at this year's Br evard Walk of Fame are: U.S. Senator Bill Nelson Community Credit U nion president Davi Br ock Space Florida president and CEO, Frank DiBello SpaceX President Gwynne Shotwell LEAD Brevard president and CEO Kristin Bakke Former BCC president, M axwell King Bright House Networks vice president of oper tions and general mana er, Paul Hanson Genesis VII president and CEO Robert Jordan Canaveral Port Authority CEO Stan Payne Wasdin Associates vice president and owner, S usie Wasdin Former NFL player and Pr o Bowl fullback, Leonard Weaver Cr eated by the Eckerd Breva rd C ommunity Advisory C ouncil, Brevard Walk of F ame will give honorees the full red carpet experience, complete with paparazzi vying for the best photos. The event begins with a celebrity VIP reception, where guests can mingle with some of the most prominent leaders and celebrities in Central Florida," Mrs. Rogers said. "Honorees and guests will walk the red carpet before enjoying an excitement filled evening of Oscar-style entertainment." D inner for the event will be provided by Carrabba's I talian Grill. Guests can also enjoy silent and live auctions, giving away exciting trips and celebrity memorabilia. "I n addition, Eckerd will also have opportunities to win a brand new Honda S abre motorcycle, autographed by NASCAR legend Geoff Bodine and a new custom-built Albury Brothers 20 Boat," Mrs. Rogers said. Each year, Eckerd gives out the Children's Hero of the Year Awards to individuals, businesses, and organizations alike. "N ominations are submitted by community members and finalists are chosen by a panel of executive community board members, who individually make their selections based purely on the information provided with the nominations," Mrs. Ro gers said. Fr om there, the 2013 Children's Hero of the Year recipients will be decided by a panel of finalists from the previous year. "I n all of Brevard County, there are only three finalists in each category, for a total of nine nominees," Mrs. R ogers added. "Of those finalists, three will be selected as honorees of this prestigious award." The three categories for the Children's Hero of the Year A wards are "Time," "T alent," and "Treasure." Each category recognizes "H eroes," who have given their time, special talents, and made financial contributions.

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

Alex's duties as captain also doubled as the team's cheerleader. "B efore big games, especially in post-season, I was there to pump everyone up before we took the field." W inning the Florida High School Athletic Association's state championship as a freshman was a major success. The older girls on the team had won state the year before," Alex said. "Repeating was the goal, and obtaining that was absolutely incredible." How ever, Alex and Riley's sophomore and junior seasons would be much more challenging. "I n past years, we made it to the state semifinals and r egional finals," Alex said. "A t that point, I think we didn't have as much belief in ourselves as a team." Their senior season proved to be completely different. "G oing into this year, our biggest challenge was believing we could actually make it to and win state," Alex said. W ith an incredibly talented roster, the Lady Bulldogs finished their season with an astounding 25-0-1 r ecord. This year felt different, like we were a new team," Alex said. "Once we got to post-season, everyone was focused on where we needed to be." The one tie the Lady Bulldogs had was to the Rockledge Raiders. The tie against Rockledge was a major wake-up call," Riley said. "Even though R ockledge has a great program, we knew we could be better." W ith the tie serving as a great learning experience, the Lady Bulldogs tidied up where they needed to and surged forward. After sitting on the sidelines for her freshman, sophomore, and junior seasons, Riley almost didn't play for the team. "I talked to Coach Rosie Lord after tryouts, and she told me that she definitely wanted to offer me a spot on the team," Riley said. The only unknown would be the amount of playing time Riley would get. "B eing a substitute didn't matter to me," Riley said. "I just wanted to be a part of the team, and I got a lot more time than I expected, especially in the post-season." B oth girls are seasoned soccer stars, gracing the pitch since they were 3 years old. Riley began playing competitively at age 9 and Alex began in the sixthgrade. While soccer tends to be a popular sport amongst all ages, playing for such an extended period of time can be rare, especially at the competitive level and with two infamous coaches. "C oach Mike and Rosie Lord's style of coaching is known county-wide: running, running, and running," Alex said. The constant and highly demanding movement scares many players away. "I didn't get burned out because of the seasons I spent on the sidelines with my injury," Riley said. "I planned on playing throughout high school, but being injured made me want to get out there even more." After my freshman year, I considered not playing again," Alex said. "The coaches were really hard on me, and it was super challenging." D espite her initial desire to quit, Alex remained with the Lady Bulldogs. "I 'm so glad I stuck it out, and I feel so much stronger for it," Alex said. Going up against the Lakeland-based George J enkins High School on Febr uary 9, the Lady Bulldogs we re focused. The game was tough and we had some injuries, but we knew exactly what we needed to do in order to win state," Alex said. As regulation and overtime expired, the realization of going to penalty kicks hit the Lady Bulldogs. "A t the end of practice every day, we do penalty kicks," Riley said. "I knew we would be prepared, but everyone was really exhausted after playing a tough game." Riley, along with four other Lady Bulldogs, was selected to take the penalty kicks during the game. "I was surprised when I was chosen," Riley said. B ut Alex had confidence in her friend and teammate. "I knew Riley could make it since she always made penalty kicks in practice," Alex added. "Plus, she was more rested than those of us who played a majority of the 100 minutes." As Riley's cleat contacted the ball, she and her team watched a familiar sight: the ball strategically flying past the keeper and straight into net. "T aking the penalty kick was definitely something to be nervous about, but I was confident and knew I had done it in practice plenty of times," Riley said. W ith George Jenkins' keeper just 14 years old, Riley had experience over her adversary. The keeper was young, but so good and will continue to improve," Riley said. "I know that George Jenkins' will be a good team for years to come." Pr ior to lining up for the crucial penalty kicks, Alex was approached by Lady B ulldogs' keeper, Riley Grier. Riley [Grier] came up to me and said, I'm so pumped, I'm gonna save every shot,'" said Alex. "I believed her, and even though she saved just one, that's all we needed." "S aving a penalty kick is something that shouldn't happen," Riley added. "By Grier saving that one, it set the tone for the rest of the penalty kicks; it made it a mental game." W inning a state title was an honor for the Lady Bulldogs, but winning a state title on their home field was the icing on the cake. "A lot of girls from the 1987 and 2009 state championship teams were at our game," Riley said. "Everyone was great, and it felt like we we re a big family." "I cried after the game," Alex said. "I wish I could find the words to describe the feeling of winning on our field, but I can't; it's that good." W ith so many memories on the field, Riley felt like a win on their home turf was a perfect way to end the season and their high school careers. "G oing out as a champion is all we could ever ask for now," she said. F ollowing a successful season, the two champions are looking forward to their futures in college.

It is disrespectful to refer toPresident Obama as "you" or "him."It is disrespectful to be insulting just because y ou do not agree with the president of the United States. He was elected by the majority,and some of these writers need to learn some respect for our leader. You may not agree with all of his policies, but making statements about dishonesty andwhat you personally think is "killing this country" is heresy and not of any expertise whatsoever of any sort. Obamacare" (the Affordable Healthcare Act) was mentioned in one letter, where thiswriter rants about the costs (which no costs of "Obamacare" have been put in place yet), while having no clue that we ran two wars that we re not paid for, which are catching up to us. O ur country is trying to recover from financial disaster due to prior administrations, not due to the current one. My guess is lately many people are writing in with a lot of free time on their hands and just want to sound off about not being happy about something relating to our presidency. Most of the time, these people are part of the problem, never part of the solution.And, hopefully these obstructionists are a dying breed and can get out of the way of allowing our president to do the things we elected him to do.This is in response to some of the rantsYe s, companies should promote from within, but because most companies don't want to advance their female employees, because we have the tendency to put family first, they would rather hire from outside and pretend none of their employees were worthy of promotion, because it would mean having to advance a female. Ye s, all Republicans are greedy.As a liberal Democrat, I believe that the government should help us, not that we should help it. A blog is not a good source for facts about abortion laws.Abortion needs to stay legal. Do we really want to go back to the days of the back-alley abortion? A person who abandons their animal when they move should be arrested for animal cruelty and forced to take a psychological examination.Gluten-free dining outIt is a problem eating out if you have to eat gluten-free food, have celiac disease or just feel better avoiding wheat. There is one restaurant that has come out with a glutenfree menu, in addition to its regular menu. It is Bob Evans. Y ou can get breakfast, lunch and dinner gluten-free. You have to request the gluten-free menu. Locally, the restaurant is located in Melbourne and West M elbourne. They also have many locations in Florida and other states.Are you a '20 percent' or a 40 percent?'I see a lot of people are writing rants about taxing the r ich. Let me explain something to you about (President Ba r ack) Obama's "tax the rich" scheme. There are two methods of taxing the rich: the 20 percent and the 40 percent. Those who are working for a living, probably making $200,000 a year or maybe $100,000 a y ear, they are all going to get taxed at 40 percent. The rest of the rich people, those with $5 billion, $6 billion, $7 billion, etc. a year, they are only going to get taxed at 20 percent. You see, they already had the money, so they are only going to get taxed at 20 percent. That's what (President) Obama's "tax the rich" scheme is.Dial 2' for EnglishC an someone please tell me why the Republicans picked Senator Marco Rubio to give the Republican r esponse to President Barack Obama's State of the Union A ddress? F irst, he will speak English, then in Spanish. I would like to know about all the other foreign languages that are spoken in this country? R epublicans are missing to boat on this. They slapped the face of all other Republicans, who grew up in other nationality households. There wasn't anyone to speak for them. They learned English in this country.The Republican agendaAfter watching the State of the Union Address and that (deleted) (Sen. Marco) Rubio's response, it is clear that the R epublican plan will hold us back. We can't invest anything. We can't build anything. We can't spend anything. All we can do is pay for tax cuts for the rich. Everything will be OK then. We don't want to invest or build in the future. If you don't invest anything, you don't get anything back. A pparently, that is the Republican plan. That's why they were rejected at the ballot box. That's why it's going to happen again in 2014 and 2016. The Republican Party is more useless than dirt. It's like bringing sand to the beach.Closing schools: How dare you?This is in reference to the school board members, who (voted to) close the grade schools. Ha ve you all lost your minds? Have you all lost your common sense? Have you all lost your compassion? I think most of you are on a power trip and are corrupt. How dare you close these schools? No w, some of those kids are going to be faced with more hurdles in front of them by going to their third or fourth elementary school in three to four years. They already come from a not-so-high economic bracket. They already face problems that other kids in other schools probably don't face. How dare you? And how dare you not let people speak? I can't wait until it's voting time, because, as far as I'm concerned, only about two of you up there are going to get a vote from me. And I hope the parents, who are organized, keep organizing.The homelessWhoever wrote the article about the homeless needs to know that not all of them are veterans. If y ou were ever to be homeless, you do the best you can to keep clean, as well as finding a safe place to sleep and to eat. B elieve me, I used to be homeless in New York until a kind person took me into her home and then brought (me to) this house here in Florida to make my life a little better. I have problems in the cold. Anyway, it seems that $12,500 is not nearly enough to help them all. Perhaps this person who wrote the article should try to feel for themselves what it is like to live in the streets, and then they would have a different opinion. I am just thankful to God for the woman who took me into her home, and that was 30 years ago. I live on Disability, which is not even enough; but I have learned how to exist on such a little amount.

"A re n' t they slowing things down? I never use most of them, so can't we get rid of them?" I usually answer by explaining that most of the icons on the average desktop are not slowing the computer down at all, but are actually more like "speed dial" buttons on a phone. M ost desktop icons are just shortcuts to programs buried deeper in the system, and are on the desktop so y ou don't have to navigate through all sorts of menus to launch a program. If y ou look closely at the icons on your desktop, you may notice that some icons have a little arrow in a little white box at the lower left corner of the icon. The arrow itself is kind of curvy and will point to the top right corner of the icon. You may also notice that other icons (like the My Computer icon, the My Documents icon, the R ecycle Bin Etc.) do not have the little arrow. There is a big difference between the two types of icons. The icons with the little arrows are actually just shortcuts and not the actual program or file. Shortcuts are really, really tiny and don't slow the computer down at all! Y ou see, any icon on your computer that does not have the little shortcut indicator is either a user file or a system file and messing with it can cause problems. Icons on y our desktop that are not shortcuts are either files that have been saved on the desktop or system files that have been set there by the operating system, and care should be taken when manipulating them. When someone asks me to get rid of all of the unused icons on their desktop, what they are invariably asking me to do is to delete them. No w if you have been r eading my column for any length of time, then you know how I feel about deleting things from your computer it's not something I do casually. In fact, I have a saying: "If I we re K ing, I'd have the delete button stricken from the keyboard." My idea of cleaning a W indows desktop by "getting r id of" a bunch of stuff is not to delete everything but leans more in line with the phrase "out of sight, out of mind." P eople will watch with a puzzled look on their face as I create yet another icon on their desktop (a new folder), name it something like "D esktop Clutter" and then drag all of the unused icons into the new folder. Then, once the desktop is down to just the icons that actually get used, I drag the Desktop Clutter folder and drop it into the My Documents folder. Then I usually spend the next ten minutes of so explaining why I went through all that trouble r ather than just deleting everything. My explanation r eally boils down to habit. One of the worst habits people get into with their machines is the habit of deleting stuff every time they tidy up. Sure it's great to have a tidy desktop, but if you are in the habit of casually deleting stuff then eventually you are going to delete something you actually need. Ev en worse is the habit some people have of emptying the recycle bin every time they delete something. That's just a disaster waiting to happen. My philosophy is "out of sight, out of mind." Tidying up my system by sweeping a bunch of unused shortcuts, and actual files for that matter, into a folder and then moving the folder out of sight ensures that if I accidentally do "get rid of something" that I need, I can re cover it easily enough by digging into the folder where I moved it. Does this mean that I am completely against deleting everything? No, of course not. Some things are indeed trash and I have no problem deleting them. I just have a r eal problem with the habit of deleting things with barely a second thought. I've seen too many people delete their way into too many problems.

I agree with the writer, but would like to add that I have two rants concerning these travelers. One, when utilizing the white line along the side of the road to indicate that it is a bike lane, why do some people insist on r iding their bikes on the white line? Second, when bikers encounter single lane streets similar to the north end of Croton R oad and along Parkway where a 5-foot wide bike path is provided, why can they not use the bike path instead of riding on the road and giving drivers a pain? By the way, I believe that bikes are supposed to come to a stop just like autos when they encounter a r ed traffic light.

And for the American C ancer Society's Road to R ecovery program, the ability to drive local cancer patients to and from those lifesaving treatments is crucial, too. "W e are faced with a desperate situation," said G ina Becker, patient services manager for the American Cancer Society. "W e cannot provide patients with transportation to and from their treatments because we do not have coordinators who can match the patients with an appropriate driver." Ms. Becker said the American Cancer Society has a need for volunteer coordinators to manage the R oad to Recovery program's daily drivers in Brevard C ounty. The Road to R ecovery program is operated by volunteers who drive local cancer patients to and from their chemotherapy and/or r adiation treatments. The American Cancer Society needs volunteer coordinators to match patients with drivers and schedule trips to and from treatments. "P atients are matched with drivers based on locations and time schedules," Ms. Becker said. "We need coordinators who can put those two together for a successful trip to treatment and back home again. Ms. Becker said that no special skills are required, other than the desire to help out in the community, and training is provided. An integral part of treating cancer successfully is making sure cancer patients receive their treatments, but many find that making transportation arrangements is a challenge. Last year, the American C ancer Society provided more than 3,100 cancer patients with rides to treatment in Florida. Aiming to creating a world with less cancer and more birthdays, the American Cancer Society nationwide, communitybased voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem. A nonprofit headquartered in Atlanta, the American Cancer Society has 12 geographic Divisions, more than 900 local offices nationwide and a presence in more than 5,100 communities.

"I t is our job to provide venues for not as wellknown authors to have a chance to sell their published works," he said. "I'm an author of 12 books, and, for 10 of them, I have sold them at discount price. It's something you have to do."

N one of this would be possible, however, without generous community donations, as well as local support for the four major fundraisers the Brevard branch of Habitat for H umanity hosts each year. One event, which happens to be right around the corner, is the organization's 25th annual Strawberry Fest, scheduled for March 16-17 at Wickham Park in Melbourne. The free two-day event, which has been known to attract families, couples and H abitat enthusiasts from throughout the state, will feature something for everyone. "S trawberry Festival is a family-friendly event designed to remind people of a simpler time," Ms. Barr said. G uests can begin each day of the festival with a pancake breakfast that includes fresh strawberries, served with sausage, orange juice and coffee, Ms. Barr said. After breakfast, they can head over to the Open Car & B ike Show, where more than 300 antique, classic, custom, hot rod cars and bikes will be displayed or take a stroll through the rows of more than 150 arts and crafts vendors, featuring a variety of art mediums and displays. Entertainment will be provided under the Wickham Park pavilion all weekend long, and children will not run out of things to do in the Kids Korner, from rockclimbing and the Monkey B ounce to a plethora of other games and activities. The Berry Patch 5K Run is always another fun event for athletes of all levels, kicking off Sunday, March 17 at 8 a.m. at the pavilion. Ne w this year to the festiv al is a 360-foot adventure zip line, the inaugural St r awberry Shortcake Eating C ontest, which will be Saturday at 12:30 p.m., and a chance to put your fishing skills to the test with Capt. M ike Badarack and the Back C ountry Fly Fishing Association Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p .m. "M anny the Manatee" will greet the little ones from noon to 3 p.m. on Sunday, while guests will have the opportunity, all weekend, to watch Habitat volunteers frame the exterior and inter ior walls of a house in just two days, Ms. Barr said. N on-perishables will also be collected for the Brevard S haring Centers in the BCC parking lot on your way into the festival, she added. B ut for some, the biggest draw to the festival will always be the hundreds of fresh, vine-ripe strawberries for sale that are picked up and delivered just two days before the event. Tw enty-five years is a major milestone for the organization and one that is worth celebrating, Ms. Barr said. "F r om humble beginnings at Front Street Park, Habitat's Strawberry Festival has grow into one of Brevard C ounty's largest annual family events," Ms. Barr said. "The goal is to raise awareness and money to build homes with hardworking families in Brevard. As the success of the festival grows, so does Habitat's ability to provide services to Br evard County residents in need of a hand up, not a handout." H abitat for Humanity of Br evard County's Strawberry F estival will be Saturday, Ma rc h 16 and 17 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Wickham Pa rk M ain Pavilion. The organization hosts four major fundraisers each y ear, all of which are open to the public: The Strawberry F estival in March; the F ather's Day Tool Drive in J une; the Hard Hats & High H eels Gala in September; and the Annual Christmas A ppeal in December.

COCOA BEACH A partnership of extreme proportions has been made, thus creating one of the most "epic" sporting event to grace the Space Coast. S mooth Running and Ron J on Surf Shop have melded their creative, sportsfocused energy to present B each'N Boards Fest. The first-ever Beach'N B oards Fest event takes place March 6-10 at Ron Jon Su rf Sh op in Cocoa Beach. M itch Varnes, owner of S mooth Running, knows what it takes to get a large event off the ground. "I founded the Sebastian I nlet Pro surfing event in 2005, and it ran through 2010," Mr. Varnes said. "I am also the founder of the M elbourne Music Marathon W eekend, which just celebrated its fifth year this F ebruary." B each'N Boards Fest is a premiere beach and boardfocused event with all types of board sports surfing, skateboarding, kite boarding, skim boarding, and much more. There will also be a collegiate beach volleyball tournament and live music," Mr. Varnes added. S ome of the best athletes, ages 21 and younger, and will offer demonstrations in the sports they excel in. Another aspect that sets B each'N Boards Fest apart from other action events of its kind is the film festival. Known for hosting the world's best action sports film festival, X-Dance will travel from its Utah-based home to the sandy shores of C ocoa Beach. "X-Dance wanted to travel and expose its event to a new audience," Mr. Va r nes said. "This film portion of the festival will be on the beach and features some of the best action sports films of 2012." A junior pro-surfing competition will also take place during Beach'N B oards Fest. The event is full and consists of the best men and women surfers, ages 21 and y ounger, from eight countries, plus California, Hawaii and the whole East Coast," Mr. Varnes said. This year's surf event features an astounding total combined cash purse of $21,000, making it the r ichest pro-surfing event to take place in Cocoa Beach. Looking to try a new sport? Professional athletes of all kinds of board-focused sports will be available for lessons, as well as demonstrations. "R on Jon Surf School will be on-site offering surf, stand-up paddle board, and kite boarding lessons," Mr. Va r nes added. "People are w elcome to sign up for lessons through our website." Those who aren't as adventurous can enjoy the film festival, people watching, and music. "W e have many bands lined up for Beach'N Boards F est," Mr. Varnes said. "Matt C osta is this year's headliner." An event of such epic proportions will undoubtedly produce a lot of waste, but Mr. Varnes and Ron Jon Su rf S hop have made sure to keep Cocoa Beach clean. "W e are partnering with F lorida Tech's sustainability program to make this a model for action sports festivals," Mr. Varnes said. W ith so much going on throughout the five days, B each'N Boards Fest is sure to bring entertainment to those of all ages. "P eople should come out to this event because it's going to be a lot of fun, fun, fun," Mr. Varnes said. B each'N Boards Fest will be held March 6-10, with most events beginning at 7:30 a.m. V olunteers are still needed and can sign up through the website.

In a recently published landmark study in the journal "Science," 47 r esearchers from 26 laboratories report the combined r ate of melting for the ice sheets covering Greenland and Antarctica has increased during the last 20 y ears. T ogether, these ice sheets are losing more than three times as much ice each year (equivalent to sea level rise of .04 inches or .95 millimeters) as they were in the 1990s (equivalent to .01 inches or .27 millimeters). A bout two-thirds of the loss is coming from Greenland, with the rest from Antarctica. C ombined, melting of these ice sheets contributed 044 inches (11.1 millimeters) to global sea levels since 1992. This accounts for one-fifth of all sea level ri se within the 20-year survey period. The remainder is caused by the thermal expansion of the warming ocean, melting of mountain glaciers and small Arctic ice caps and groundwater mining.

However, we may see other signs such as lack of coordination in one or both hind legs, scuffing ofhind leg toenails, a generalized weakness ofthe hind legs, or muscle loss ofthe hind legs. After a complete neurological exam, y our doctor will have to do tests to rule out other things like herniated discs, cancer, or stenosis ofthe spinal cord. After these diseases are ruled out, we are left with the diagnosis of degenerative myelopathy. This disease is similar to Lou Gehrigs disease in humans. Certain breeds such as Bloodhounds, Borzois, German Shepherds, W elsh Corgis, Cocker Spaniels and Pugs have increased incidence ofmyelopathy. There is a DNA test that discerns ifthe dog is a carrier ofthe mutant genes that lead to the disease. T here is no known cure for the disease, so it is best to have your dogs tested and not bred ifthey are found to have these mutant genes.

Lady Bulldogs reflect on success, look to futureMELBOURNE Winning a state championship title during ones high school career, while incredible, is a lofty goal for most. T wo state titles? A pipe dream. How ever, that pipe dream is, remarkably, a r eality for several senior members of the Lady Bulldogs soccer team at Melbourne High School. S eniors Riley Collins and Alex Koeing are a part of M elbourne High history, claiming state championships during their freshman and senior years, r espectively. D espite her recent success, Riley, a forward for the Lady Bulldogs, started freshman year off on a sour note. I broke my tailbone r ight before the season started, Riley said. It was slightly bruised before, but I hit it during speed training and hurt it even more at a tournament in Savannah. After getting X-rays, Riley was informed that her tailbone had a slight fracture. Since I couldnt play, I managed the team freshman year, Riley said. T eam captain and center back, Alex, played all four y ears of her high school career. The thing about Riley is that shes always been such an impact player, so when she was hurt, it was really sad, Alex said. Having her on the team this year was like seeing that old spark come back in her; it was so exciting. As team captain, Alex was given many responsibilities. O ur team was really incredible, so I didnt have to be a disciplinary leader, Alex added. It was more like, if anyone needed someone to talk to, I was W alk of Fame honors community advocates, leadersBREVARD Brevard celebrities and community leaders will be honored for their contributions to the S pace Coast community.

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

Alexs duties as captain also doubled as the teams cheerleader. B efore big games, especially in post-season, I was there to pump everyone up before we took the field. W inning the Florida High School Athletic Associations state championship as a freshman was a major success. The older girls on the team had won state the year before, Alex said. Repeating was the goal, and obtaining that was absolutely incredible. How ever, Alex and Rileys sophomore and junior seasons would be much more challenging. I n past years, we made it to the state semifinals and r egional finals, Alex said. A t that point, I think we didnt have as much belief in ourselves as a team. Their senior season proved to be completely different. G oing into this year, our biggest challenge was believing we could actually make it to and win state, Alex said. W ith an incredibly talented roster, the Lady Bulldogs finished their season with an astounding 25-0-1 r ecord. This year felt different, like we were a new team, Alex said. Once we got to post-season, everyone was focused on where we needed to be. The one tie the Lady Bulldogs had was to the Rockledge Raiders. The tie against Rockledge was a major wake-up call, Riley said. Even though R ockledge has a great program, we knew we could be better. W ith the tie serving as a great learning experience, the Lady Bulldogs tidied up where they needed to and surged forward. After sitting on the sidelines for her freshman, sophomore, and junior seasons, Riley almost didnt play for the team. I talked to Coach Rosie Lord after tryouts, and she told me that she definitely wanted to offer me a spot on the team, Riley said. The only unknown would be the amount of playing time Riley would get. B eing a substitute didnt matter to me, Riley said. I just wanted to be a part of the team, and I got a lot more time than I expected, especially in the post-season. B oth girls are seasoned soccer stars, gracing the pitch since they were 3 years old. Riley began playing competitively at age 9 and Alex began in the sixthgrade. While soccer tends to be a popular sport amongst all ages, playing for such an extended period of time can be rare, especially at the competitive level and with two infamous coaches. C oach Mike and Rosie Lords style of coaching is known county-wide: running, running, and running, Alex said. The constant and highly demanding movement scares many players away. I didnt get burned out because of the seasons I spent on the sidelines with my injury, Riley said. I planned on playing throughout high school, but being injured made me want to get out there even more. After my freshman year, I considered not playing again, Alex said. The coaches were really hard on me, and it was super challenging. D espite her initial desire to quit, Alex remained with the Lady Bulldogs. I m so glad I stuck it out, and I feel so much stronger for it, Alex said. Going up against the Lakeland-based George J enkins High School on Febr uary 9, the Lady Bulldogs we re focused. The game was tough and we had some injuries, but we knew exactly what we needed to do in order to win state, Alex said. As regulation and overtime expired, the realization of going to penalty kicks hit the Lady Bulldogs. A t the end of practice every day, we do penalty kicks, Riley said. I knew we would be prepared, but everyone was really exhausted after playing a tough game. Riley, along with four other Lady Bulldogs, was selected to take the penalty kicks during the game. I was surprised when I was chosen, Riley said. B ut Alex had confidence in her friend and teammate. I knew Riley could make it since she always made penalty kicks in practice, Alex added. Plus, she was more rested than those of us who played a majority of the 100 minutes. As Rileys cleat contacted the ball, she and her team watched a familiar sight: the ball strategically flying past the keeper and straight into net. T aking the penalty kick was definitely something to be nervous about, but I was confident and knew I had done it in practice plenty of times, Riley said. W ith George Jenkins keeper just 14 years old, Riley had experience over her adversary. The keeper was young, but so good and will continue to improve, Riley said. I know that George Jenkins will be a good team for years to come. Pr ior to lining up for the crucial penalty kicks, Alex was approached by Lady B ulldogs keeper, Riley Grier. Riley [Grier] came up to me and said, Im so pumped, Im gonna save every shot, said Alex. I believed her, and even though she saved just one, thats all we needed. S aving a penalty kick is something that shouldnt happen, Riley added. By Grier saving that one, it set the tone for the rest of the penalty kicks; it made it a mental game. W inning a state title was an honor for the Lady Bulldogs, but winning a state title on their home field was the icing on the cake. A lot of girls from the 1987 and 2009 state championship teams were at our game, Riley said. Everyone was great, and it felt like we we re a big family. I cried after the game, Alex said. I wish I could find the words to describe the feeling of winning on our field, but I cant; its that good. W ith so many memories on the field, Riley felt like a win on their home turf was a perfect way to end the season and their high school careers. G oing out as a champion is all we could ever ask for now, she said. F ollowing a successful season, the two champions are looking forward to their futures in college.

It is disrespectful to refer toPresident Obama as you or him.It is disrespectful to be insulting just because y ou do not agree with the president of the United States. He was elected by the majority,and some of these writers need to learn some respect for our leader. You may not agree with all of his policies, but making statements about dishonesty andwhat you personally think is killing this country is heresy and not of any expertise whatsoever of any sort. Obamacare (the Affordable Healthcare Act) was mentioned in one letter, where thiswriter rants about the costs (which no costs of Obamacare have been put in place yet), while having no clue that we ran two wars that we re not paid for, which are catching up to us. O ur country is trying to recover from financial disaster due to prior administrations, not due to the current one. My guess is lately many people are writing in with a lot of free time on their hands and just want to sound off about not being happy about something relating to our presidency. Most of the time, these people are part of the problem, never part of the solution.And, hopefully these obstructionists are a dying breed and can get out of the way of allowing our president to do the things we elected him to do.This is in response to some of the rantsYe s, companies should promote from within, but because most companies dont want to advance their female employees, because we have the tendency to put family first, they would rather hire from outside and pretend none of their employees were worthy of promotion, because it would mean having to advance a female. Ye s, all Republicans are greedy.As a liberal Democrat, I believe that the government should help us, not that we should help it. A blog is not a good source for facts about abortion laws.Abortion needs to stay legal. Do we really want to go back to the days of the back-alley abortion? A person who abandons their animal when they move should be arrested for animal cruelty and forced to take a psychological examination.Gluten-free dining outIt is a problem eating out if you have to eat gluten-free food, have celiac disease or just feel better avoiding wheat. There is one restaurant that has come out with a glutenfree menu, in addition to its regular menu. It is Bob Evans. Y ou can get breakfast, lunch and dinner gluten-free. You have to request the gluten-free menu. Locally, the restaurant is located in Melbourne and West M elbourne. They also have many locations in Florida and other states.Are you a 0 percent or a percent?I see a lot of people are writing rants about taxing the r ich. Let me explain something to you about (President Bar ack) Obamas tax the rich scheme. There are two methods of taxing the rich: the 20 percent and the 40 percent. Those who are working for a living, probably making $200,000 a year or maybe $100,000 a y ear, they are all going to get taxed at 40 percent. The rest of the rich people, those with $5 billion, $6 billion, $7 billion, etc. a year, they are only going to get taxed at 20 percent. You see, they already had the money, so they are only going to get taxed at 20 percent. Thats what (President) Obamas tax the rich scheme is.Dial for EnglishC an someone please tell me why the Republicans picked Senator Marco Rubio to give the Republican r esponse to President Barack Obamas State of the Union A ddress? F irst, he will speak English, then in Spanish. I would like to know about all the other foreign languages that are spoken in this country? R epublicans are missing to boat on this. They slapped the face of all other Republicans, who grew up in other nationality households. There wasnt anyone to speak for them. They learned English in this country.The Republican agendaAfter watching the State of the Union Address and that (deleted) (Sen. Marco) Rubios response, it is clear that the R epublican plan will hold us back. We cant invest anything. We cant build anything. We cant spend anything. All we can do is pay for tax cuts for the rich. Everything will be OK then. We dont want to invest or build in the future. If you dont invest anything, you dont get anything back. A pparently, that is the Republican plan. Thats why they were rejected at the ballot box. Thats why its going to happen again in 2014 and 2016. The Republican Party is more useless than dirt. Its like bringing sand to the beach.Closing schools: How dare you?This is in reference to the school board members, who (voted to) close the grade schools. Ha ve you all lost your minds? Have you all lost your common sense? Have you all lost your compassion? I think most of you are on a power trip and are corrupt. How dare you close these schools? Now, some of those kids are going to be faced with more hurdles in front of them by going to their third or fourth elementary school in three to four years. They already come from a not-so-high economic bracket. They already face problems that other kids in other schools probably dont face. How dare you? And how dare you not let people speak? I cant wait until its voting time, because, as far as Im concerned, only about two of you up there are going to get a vote from me. And I hope the parents, who are organized, keep organizing.The homelessWhoever wrote the article about the homeless needs to know that not all of them are veterans. If you were ever to be homeless, you do the best you can to keep clean, as well as finding a safe place to sleep and to eat. B elieve me, I used to be homeless in New York until a kind person took me into her home and then brought (me to) this house here in Florida to make my life a little better. I have problems in the cold. Anyway, it seems that $12,500 is not nearly enough to help them all. Perhaps this person who wrote the article should try to feel for themselves what it is like to live in the streets, and then they would have a different opinion. I am just thankful to God for the woman who took me into her home, and that was 30 years ago. I live on Disability, which is not even enough; but I have learned how to exist on such a little amount. J ust think of those who get nothing and have nowhere to live!Saturday market mostly up, some downH ats off to the Ocean Avenue Saturday Market in M elbourne Beach!

A re n t they slowing things down? I never use most of them, so cant we get rid of them? I usually answer by explaining that most of the icons on the average desktop are not slowing the computer down at all, but are actually more like speed dial buttons on a phone. M ost desktop icons are just shortcuts to programs buried deeper in the system, and are on the desktop so y ou dont have to navigate through all sorts of menus to launch a program. If you look closely at the icons on your desktop, you may notice that some icons have a little arrow in a little white box at the lower left corner of the icon. The arrow itself is kind of curvy and will point to the top right corner of the icon. You may also notice that other icons (like the My Computer icon, the My Documents icon, the R ecycle Bin Etc.) do not have the little arrow. There is a big difference between the two types of icons. The icons with the little arrows are actually just shortcuts and not the actual program or file. Shortcuts are really, really tiny and dont slow the computer down at all! Y ou see, any icon on your computer that does not have the little shortcut indicator is either a user file or a system file and messing with it can cause problems. Icons on y our desktop that are not shortcuts are either files that have been saved on the desktop or system files that have been set there by the operating system, and care should be taken when manipulating them. When someone asks me to get rid of all of the unused icons on their desktop, what they are invariably asking me to do is to delete them. Now if you have been r eading my column for any length of time, then you know how I feel about deleting things from your computer its not something I do casually. In fact, I have a saying: If I we re K ing, Id have the delete button stricken from the keyboard. My idea of cleaning a W indows desktop by getting r id of a bunch of stuff is not to delete everything but leans more in line with the phrase out of sight, out of mind. P eople will watch with a puzzled look on their face as I create yet another icon on their desktop (a new folder), name it something like D esktop Clutter and then drag all of the unused icons into the new folder. Then, once the desktop is down to just the icons that actually get used, I drag the Desktop Clutter folder and drop it into the My Documents folder. Then I usually spend the next ten minutes of so explaining why I went through all that trouble r ather than just deleting everything. My explanation r eally boils down to habit. One of the worst habits people get into with their machines is the habit of deleting stuff every time they tidy up. Sure its great to have a tidy desktop, but if you are in the habit of casually deleting stuff then eventually you are going to delete something you actually need. Ev en worse is the habit some people have of emptying the recycle bin every time they delete something. Thats just a disaster waiting to happen. My philosophy is out of sight, out of mind. Tidying up my system by sweeping a bunch of unused shortcuts, and actual files for that matter, into a folder and then moving the folder out of sight ensures that if I accidentally do get rid of something that I need, I can re cover it easily enough by digging into the folder where I moved it. Does this mean that I am completely against deleting everything? No, of course not. Some things are indeed trash and I have no problem deleting them. I just have a r eal problem with the habit of deleting things with barely a second thought. Ive seen too many people delete their way into too many problems.

And for the American C ancer Societys Road to R ecovery program, the ability to drive local cancer patients to and from those lifesaving treatments is crucial, too. W e are faced with a desperate situation, said G ina Becker, patient services manager for the American Cancer Society. W e cannot provide patients with transportation to and from their treatments because we do not have coordinators who can match the patients with an appropriate driver. Ms. Becker said the American Cancer Society has a need for volunteer coordinators to manage the R oad to Recovery programs daily drivers in Brevard C ounty. The Road to R ecovery program is operated by volunteers who drive local cancer patients to and from their chemotherapy and/or r adiation treatments. The American Cancer Society needs volunteer coordinators to match patients with drivers and schedule trips to and from treatments. P atients are matched with drivers based on locations and time schedules, Ms. Becker said. We need coordinators who can put those two together for a successful trip to treatment and back home again. Ms. Becker said that no special skills are required, other than the desire to help out in the community, and training is provided. An integral part of treating cancer successfully is making sure cancer patients receive their treatments, but many find that making transportation arrangements is a challenge. Last year, the American C ancer Society provided more than 3,100 cancer patients with rides to treatment in Florida. Aiming to creating a world with less cancer and more birthdays, the American Cancer Society nationwide, communitybased voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem. A nonprofit headquartered in Atlanta, the American Cancer Society has 12 geographic Divisions, more than 900 local offices nationwide and a presence in more than 5,100 communities.

Wickham teers have helped build 228 new homes, rehabilitate 47 existing homes and rebuild another 20. N one of this would be possible, however, without generous community donations, as well as local support for the four major fundraisers the Brevard branch of Habitat for H umanity hosts each year. One event, which happens to be right around the corner, is the organizations 25th annual Strawberry Fest, scheduled for March 16-17 at Wickham Park in Melbourne. The free two-day event, which has been known to attract families, couples and H abitat enthusiasts from throughout the state, will feature something for everyone. S trawberry Festival is a family-friendly event designed to remind people of a simpler time, Ms. Barr said. G uests can begin each day of the festival with a pancake breakfast that includes fresh strawberries, served with sausage, orange juice and coffee, Ms. Barr said. After breakfast, they can head over to the Open Car & B ike Show, where more than 300 antique, classic, custom, hot rod cars and bikes will be displayed or take a stroll through the rows of more than 150 arts and crafts vendors, featuring a variety of art mediums and displays. Entertainment will be provided under the Wickham Park pavilion all weekend long, and children will not run out of things to do in the Kids Korner, from rockclimbing and the Monkey B ounce to a plethora of other games and activities. The Berry Patch 5K Run is always another fun event for athletes of all levels, kicking off Sunday, March 17 at 8 a.m. at the pavilion. Ne w this year to the festiv al is a 360-foot adventure zip line, the inaugural Str awberry Shortcake Eating C ontest, which will be Saturday at 12:30 p.m., and a chance to put your fishing skills to the test with Capt. M ike Badarack and the Back C ountry Fly Fishing Association Sunday from 8 a.m. to 5 p .m. M anny the Manatee will greet the little ones from noon to 3 p.m. on Sunday, while guests will have the opportunity, all weekend, to watch Habitat volunteers frame the exterior and inter ior walls of a house in just two days, Ms. Barr said. N on-perishables will also be collected for the Brevard S haring Centers in the BCC parking lot on your way into the festival, she added. B ut for some, the biggest draw to the festival will always be the hundreds of fresh, vine-ripe strawberries for sale that are picked up and delivered just two days before the event. Tw enty-five years is a major milestone for the organization and one that is worth celebrating, Ms. Barr said. Fr om humble beginnings at Front Street Park, Habitats Strawberry Festival has grow into one of Brevard C ountys largest annual family events, Ms. Barr said. The goal is to raise awareness and money to build homes with hardworking families in Brevard.

COCOA BEACH A partnership of extreme proportions has been made, thus creating one of the most epic sporting event to grace the Space Coast. S mooth Running and Ron J on Surf Shop have melded their creative, sportsfocused energy to present B eachN Boards Fest. The first-ever BeachN B oards Fest event takes place March 6-10 at Ron Jon Su rf Sh op in Cocoa Beach. M itch Varnes, owner of S mooth Running, knows what it takes to get a large event off the ground. I founded the Sebastian I nlet Pro surfing event in 2005, and it ran through 2010, Mr. Varnes said. I am also the founder of the M elbourne Music Marathon W eekend, which just celebrated its fifth year this F ebruary. B eachN Boards Fest is a premiere beach and boardfocused event with all types of board sports surfing, skateboarding, kite boarding, skim boarding, and much more. There will also be a collegiate beach volleyball tournament and live music, Mr. Varnes added. S ome of the best athletes, ages 21 and younger, and will offer demonstrations in the sports they excel in. Another aspect that sets B eachN Boards Fest apart from other action events of its kind is the film festival. Known for hosting the worlds best action sports film festival, X-Dance will travel from its Utah-based home to the sandy shores of C ocoa Beach. X-Dance wanted to travel and expose its event to a new audience, Mr. Var nes said. This film portion of the festival will be on the beach and features some of the best action sports films of 2012. A junior pro-surfing competition will also take place during BeachN B oards Fest. The event is full and consists of the best men and women surfers, ages 21 and y ounger, from eight countries, plus California, Hawaii and the whole East Coast, Mr. Varnes said. This years surf event features an astounding total combined cash purse of $21,000, making it the r ichest pro-surfing event to take place in Cocoa Beach. Looking to try a new sport? Professional athletes of all kinds of board-focused sports will be available for lessons, as well as demonstrations. Ron Jon Surf School will be on-site offering surf, stand-up paddle board, and kite boarding lessons, Mr. Var nes added. People are w elcome to sign up for lessons through our website. Those who arent as adventurous can enjoy the film festival, people watching, and music. W e have many bands lined up for BeachN Boards F est, Mr. Varnes said. Matt C osta is this years headliner. An event of such epic proportions will undoubtedly produce a lot of waste, but Mr. Varnes and Ron Jon Su rf S hop have made sure to keep Cocoa Beach clean. W e are partnering with F lorida Techs sustainability program to make this a model for action sports festivals, Mr. Varnes said. W ith so much going on throughout the five days, B eachN Boards Fest is sure to bring entertainment to those of all ages. P eople should come out to this event because its going to be a lot of fun, fun, fun, Mr. Varnes said. B eachN Boards Fest will be held March 6-10, with most events beginning at 7:30 a.m. V olunteers are still needed and can sign up through the website.

In a recently published landmark study in the journal Science, 47 r esearchers from 26 laboratories report the combined r ate of melting for the ice sheets covering Greenland and Antarctica has increased during the last 20 y ears. T ogether, these ice sheets are losing more than three times as much ice each year (equivalent to sea level rise of .04 inches or .95 millimeters) as they were in the 1990s (equivalent to .01 inches or .27 millimeters). A bout two-thirds of the loss is coming from Greenland, with the rest from Antarctica. C ombined, melting of these ice sheets contributed 044 inches (11.1 millimeters) to global sea levels since 1992. This accounts for one-fifth of all sea level ri se within the 20-year survey period. The remainder is caused by the thermal expansion of the warming ocean, melting of mountain glaciers and small Arctic ice caps and groundwater mining.

However, we may see other signs such as lack of coordination in one or both hind legs, scuffing ofhind leg toenails, a generalized weakness ofthe hind legs, or muscle loss ofthe hind legs. After a complete neurological exam, y our doctor will have to do tests to rule out other things like herniated discs, cancer, or stenosis ofthe spinal cord. After these diseases are ruled out, we are left with the diagnosis of degenerative myelopathy. This disease is similar to Lou Gehrigs disease in humans. Certain breeds such as Bloodhounds, Borzois, German Shepherds, W elsh Corgis, Cocker Spaniels and Pugs have increased incidence ofmyelopathy. There is a DNA test that discerns ifthe dog is a carrier ofthe mutant genes that lead to the disease. T here is no known cure for the disease, so it is best to have your dogs tested and not bred ifthey are found to have these mutant genes.
