On Feb. 28, 2013, Rachel Pr ice, 18, of West Melbourne, and Jamaree Cook, 19, of Palm Bay, were killed by a drunk driver on Old M elbourne Highway. The pair was driving to Eckerd C ollege in St. Petersburg, where Ms. Price played soccer. While things roll out in the legal system for the families of the two late teens, a soccer tournament will be held in memory of Ms. Price. Br evard Soccer Alliance, in association with Challenge Sports, will host the "R achel Price Memorial 3vs-3 Challenge" on Saturday, Jan. 11 at Max K. Rodes Pa rk in West Melbourne. Pa r tial proceeds from the event will be donated to the R achel Price Scholarship F und and the local chapter of Mothers Against Drunk Dr iving. Br evard Soccer Alliance is a new youth soccer club, formed by the merger of M elbourne Beach Soccer Club where Ms. Price played for many years M elbourne Eau Gallie United Soccer Association and Ro ckledge Soccer Club. "R achel was a remarkable person and one of the finest soccer players to every play in Brevard County," said Al Genchi of Challenge Sports. "S he was taken away from all of us by a drunk driver in a tragic accident when she had an incredible future." Ms. Price, who was a former Melbourne High School soccer star, had just been called up by the U.S. W omen's National Soccer T eam. "B re va rd S occer Alliance worked with Challenge S ports and Eva Price, R achel's mother, to establish an event that would both honor Rachel's legacy and memory, while raising awareness of the tragic consequences of drinking and driving," Mr. Genchi said.

On Tuesday, Dec. 17, Health F irst Palm Bay Hospital and the city of Palm Bay Fire Rescue teamed up to help increase public awareness about the dangers of Christmas tree fires within a residence. At H ealth First Palm Bay Hospital, Christmas trees were set on fire to demonstrate how easily they can ignite and burn. "O ne should not handle a Christmas tree fire because the tree will go up quickly when it's dry and it will overcome someone, who is not trained," said Ron Bailey, assistant fire marshal for the city of Palm Bay Fire Rescue. "The best advice would be to evacuate the house and call 911."

Ms. Stern said that the r ace will feature familyfriendly entertainment, including refreshments, awards, tuxedo T-shirts, non-alcoholic toasts at the finish line, mini massages for participants, pearl necklaces to celebrate the group's 30 year anniversary and performances from members of the orchestra.

Niemi, DMD 082481 want people to know that we will always give you all the treatment options for your pet and make medical recommendations without trying to push you in one direction or another." W ith the veterinary industry moving toward large, multi-doctor facilities, where a client might see several different veterinarians, the Sikoski's have discovered that people often desire to see just one vet, or in their case, a husband and wife team; this small-office feeling gives clients the opportunity to build relationships with the doctor and staff members. "I n order to grow, we developed the idea of expanding to new locations in the county, while keeping the small clinic feel and personal touch of the single doctor practice," Dr. Sikoski said. "Our vision is to create a family of clinics that each practice similar styles of veterinary medicine, while still bringing what we believe is a unique and hard-to-find personal touch and bond between the doctor and the patient." S ensitive to their client's desire to be conservative with medical care for their pets, Dr. Sikoski and her husband want them to understand that maintaining a good quality of life for their animals can be made possible, even on a budget. All three of our locations are considered full-service,' meaning we provide everything from routine wellness exams and vaccines to onsite diagnostics blood work, radiographs, urinalysis to surgical procedures, r anging from routine spays, neuters and dentals to mass r emovals, cystotomies and abdominal exploratory surgeries." Dr Sikoski said she cannot stress enough the importance of having your pet get a thorough, quality exam by a veterinarian on at least a y early basis. While the three clinics o wned by the Sikoski's mainly care for cats and dogs, Dr. P aul Sikoski also sees "pocket pets," such as ferrets, rabbits, sugar gliders, reptiles and some avian species, at P alm Bay Animal Clinic. "W ith the addition of C oquina Ridge Animal Clinic in Melbourne, each clinic is now 20 minutes from the next, and we hope to be able to accommodate client's schedules even better by having the option for their pet to be seen at an alternate location on days their primary location might be closed," Dr. Sikoski said. F or example, Palm Bay Animal Clinic is closed on W ednesdays, while Clearlake Animal Hospital and C oquina Ridge Animal Clinic are both open. Clearlake is closed on Saturdays, while P alm Bay and Coquina are open from 8 to 11 a.m. Dr Sikoski added that Dr. K ate Berberick will begin seeing patients at Coquina Ridge Animal Clinic on Jan. 2. "O ur goal is to provide you and your pet with compassionate and quality veterinary care, while offering you affordable treatment options," Dr. Sikoski said. "W e believe that by providing you with a better understanding of your pet's health through veterinary consultation and educational materials, we are empowering you to make the best decisions for your pet and strengthen their bond with your family."

Yu ri M ykoo, hospital director of clinical nursing at Health First Palm Bay H ospital, agreed that the demonstration of the burning Christmas tree served as a great reminder of the potential danger. "W e wanted to take this opportunity to remind people how important it is to be aware of potential dangers with Christmas trees," she said. "While minor burns can be treated at home, if y ou are ever in any doubt whether you need medical assistance, call 911 or go the nearest emergency room." Mr. Bailey said, in addition to keeping a live Christmas tree watered, people should also be aware of the heat sources that around trees, such as candles, heaters and fireplaces. A ccording to the National Fi re Pr otection Association, D ecember is the peak time of year for home candle fires, with more than half of home candle fires occurri ng when something catches fire that is too close to the candle. Also, one out of every three Christmas tree fires are caused by electrical problems and a heat source too close to the tree causes one out of every six fires.FiresF rom page A1 Photo courtesy of Health First Palm Bay HospitalOn Tuesday, Dec. 17, Health First Palm Bay Hospital and the city of Palm Bay Fire Rescue hosted a Christmas tree burning visual to demonstrate safety procedures when dealing with Christmas tree fires. group of doll makers, whose mission is to further the enjoyment and appreciation of art dolls, develop individual creativity, help doll makers grow in excellence and promote doll making as an art. The dolls the SCDA create use a variety of mediums, including clay and fabric. Doll making is an art form that encompasses many media and techniques, including design, sculpture, fiber art, painting, sewing, surface design and embellishment," said Linda Gieger, a member of SCDA. "The results range from the sublime to the r idiculous." The idea for the event came from the friendship between Brevard Museum director Nancy Rader and Ms. Gieger. "M any years ago, the museum hosted a similar exhibit, with dolls made specifically inspired by the W indover Exhibit," Mrs. B urris said. "She explored the option of the SCDA doing something similar at the museum. The SCDA toured the museum, felt inspired and the exhibit was created." The entire museum will be open during Friday's event and attendees are encouraged to view all of the exhibits offered, as well as to find the doll in each exhibit. The dolls are not toys, but works of art that, as most art works, evolve magically in the process of creation," Ms. Gieger said. "S ometimes, they make a statement about the artist; sometimes, they have been inspired by a pattern, photograph or a dream. Most often, they are simply beautifully-crafted figures." Ms. Gieger added that patrons of the arts will enjoy the wide variety of dolls and will undoubtedly find the dolls unique, amusing and wonderful. "W e at Space Coast Doll Artists are thrilled to be part of the museum for this event," Ms. Gieger said. The Brevard Museum of N atural History and Science will host the exhibit opening a collection of dolls handcrafted by the Space C oast Doll Artists on Friday, Jan. 10 at 6 p.m. T ickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. Light r efreshments will be served. F or more information about the Space Coast Doll Ar tists,visit www.SpaceC oastDollArtists.com.

Santa's Little Helpers' make Christmas brighter MELBOURNE Girl Scout troops from all across Br evard County came together to help those in need this holiday season. On Wednesday, Dec. 11, the Girl Scouts of Citrus C ouncil, Voyager Service U nit hosted the Santa's Little Helpers' Christmas party, where each scout brought an unwrapped gift to bring to Santa. A total of 120 gifts we re collected and donated to children in need. "I am the new Service Unit manager, and my goal for our unit is to be seen as a huge force of good in our community," said Marcy H utchens, who is also a troop leader for the Daisies. "I know people often only associate Girl Scouts with cookies and asking people to buy them, but I wanted to show that our Girl Scouts are more than that." N atalie French, the leader of a Junior Girl Scouts and D aisy Troop from Meado wlane Elementary School, came up with the idea for the "Santa's Little Helpers" service project. "S he wanted to come up with a fun way for our y ounger girls to make a difference," Mrs. Hutchens said. Mo re than 100 Girl Scouts attended the "Santa's Little H elpers" Christmas party, with 120 gifts collected. "W e had a volunteer S anta, balloon fun, crafts cookies and hot cocoa," Mrs. Hutchens added. Of the 120 unwrapped presents collected, 10 were donated to Lamp Lighter families, with the other 110 gifts given to The Giving Tr ee, a project started by two cadets, Kayleigh Remer and Jamie Stahl, in Troop No 4123, to help them earn their "Silver Award." This project helped The W omen's Center give battered and abused children and mothers a better Christmas," Mrs. Hutchens said. "I t was important because it teaches our girls to think of an idea, create a plan of action and make it happen." Mrs. Hutchens said that the Girl Scouts of Citrus C ouncil, Voyager Service U nit, plan to make "Santa's Little Helpers" an annual event.By Amanda Hatfield AndersonAhatfield@hometownnewsol.com Photo courtesy of Michelle CederquistStephanie Corcoran and Ruth Taylor, employees at the W omen's Center, stand with all of the gifts donated by the Girl Scout Troops, who participated in the inaugural Santa's Little Helpers' event. bourne.

While sitting at a light waiting for the light to change, twice I had someone back into my bumper. The second time was really hard. And then I had a lady backing up at a Publix's shopping center, an elderly lady, and I was beeping my horn to let her know that she was backing up too fast. S he then rams the front of my car. I got out and said, "Didn't you hear me beep?'" "N o, I can't hear. I'm deaf." W ell, OK. So much for that! I don't know where these drivers are coming from, but something has to be done. It 's a shame that good drivers like me and this other woman who wrote in had her rates go up. This is not fair. Something needs to be done. Thank you.Bad audio on TV and in moviesThank you very much for this wonderful paper you continue to give us. It is the only paper that I know of that has good news in it. I guess this is considered a rant. It is concerning the background, supposedly, noise and music on the TV and the movies. It is supposed to be background noise, but it is a lot louder than the people speaking. Pe ople, who have hearing problems, and there are a lot of us, makes it very hard to hear and understand what the people and characters are saying on TV and in the movies.K eep your dogs out of the grocery storeI want to know why dogs, and I don't mean seeing-eye dogs, are allowed in our grocery stores now. I don't like it. I don't want to buy groceries where they are. So can somebody please explain to me why people cannot go grocery shopping without their dogs? Thank you very much.The new Health Insurance Marketplace options availableIn the article "The new Health Insurance Marketplace options available" in the Oct. 25 Hometown News, you quote a report, released by the Department of Health and H uman Services, which claims that "in state after state, consumers will see increased competition in the health insurance marketplace, leading to new and affordable choices for consumers." B efore I logged on to www.healthcare.gov, I actually believed this and thought that GOP objections to "Obamacare" were simply partisan politics at it's worst. I could not have been more wrong. After a number of unsuccessful attempts to log in to H ealth Insurance Marketplace, I was finally able to get on the site, dutifully answered all of the questions, including that my current income is $4,471 per year, or $372.58 per month. I was a bit surprised to find that I was unable to qualify for any of the much touted "government help" for lowincome citizens. I was much more shocked when I looked at the premiums of the plans I am eligible for. The very least expensive plan, which covers none of my current doctors and has a $6,300 deductible more than my total annual income, is $283.69 per month more than 75 percent, yes, three quarters of my income. The least expensive plan that covers any of my existing doctors costs $377.82. That is more than I make each month. U nlike the federal government, I can't spend more than I make each month. Again, the annual deductibles are more than my annual income. How can President (Barack) Obama claim that help is available for low-income citizens, when someone who makes less than the premiums is ineligible? To add insult to injury, I was just informed that Blue Cr oss is doing away with my current health insurance, which costs only $87 per month for myself and my curr ently unemployed daughter, because the plan doesn't comply with Affordable Healthcare Act guidelines. While it was not a great plan, because it didn't cover hospitalization, it did at least covers our doctors and prescriptions. I'm curious to know how many other central Floridians are actually losing their health insurance thanks to "Obamacare."Response to Rant: Real Estate is different in Florida' I am a Realtor, listing and selling in Brevard County since 1995.

Mismanagement waste companyThis is about the handling of the new waste collection containers in Merritt Island. The new containers were delivered late in September to homes along South Tropical Trail. At the time of the delivery, the workmen were asked why they were leaving the larger containers at a 55-plus complex. The worker said that he knew they were to get the smaller ones, but his work order showed that he was to leave these. A call to Waste Management was made by some of the ow ners in this complex, and we were told that they knew we we re to get the smaller cans and they would be changed out in two weeks. So we had to use the larger ones until the change out could be made. A later call to Waste Management received the information that the containers would be changed out on Nov. 1.

Dear Fellow Floridian, As another year comes to a close, I am once again very proud of the successes my team at the Department of Financial Services has made possible. With their help, we have made great strides to protect F loridians from fraud as w ell as the damaging impacts of fire and arson. We have also helped F lorida consumers make smart financial decisions and helped return millions in unclaimed property to its rightful owners, among many other accomplishments. O ur dedicated fraud investigators work tirelessly day in and day out to keep your hard earned money where it belongs; in your pocket. While their work never ends, 2013 brought significant success in the fight against fraudsters. Fraud related arrests totaled more than 1,600 this year. While serving as your state fire marshal, my r espect for the service and commitment of our state's firefighters has only increased each day. Whether working to investigate and prosecute arson-related crimes, train prospective students or educate the community about fire prevention, our team remains steadfast in their commitment to protect Florida's citizens and their property against the damaging impacts of fire and arson. This year, our team responded to more than 3,200 fires and arrested nearly 300 people for committing arson. O ur consumer services helpline has professionals r eady to help any and all F loridians with their insurance-related needs. Whether you need an explanation of a current policy, have questions about the upcoming changes to the health insurance industry or need an advocate to help settle an insurance dispute, our team is ready and willing to assist. This y ear, our helpline assisted with nearly 20,000 r equests and helped r ecover nearly $27 million for Floridians. In addition to the millions recovered through our consumer services helpline, our department has also helped return more than $212 million to Floridians in 2013 through our unclaimed property program. When our team is able to reunite families with loved ones' treasured heirlooms, inheritance funds, or even a little cash one simply forgot existed, it is very rewarding for our entire team. While the unclaimed property or money remains yours to r eclaim at any time, the unclaimed property fund works to support our public school system yearr ound. I am proud our team is not only able to r eturn what's rightfully y ours, but is also working to protect the education of our next generation while doing so. O ur team has worked hard to serve the people of F lorida, and I assure you that 2014 won't be any different. I'm as committed as I have ever been to putting more fraudsters behind bars and further promoting fiscal accountability and transparency around the state.

Pr oponents have not told the public that to maintain high standards, school days are eight to 10 hours with four hours of homework and the school year is 220230 days. There are no sports or extra curricular activities. B ut, these schools are free and governments run. F or students, who fail the eighth-grade test and want to go to college, the parents must pay for a private college. Pa r ents in the United S tates will not stand for subjecting their children to these schedules, especially in government-run schools. In at lease one system, 3y ear-olds are taken from their parents Monday through Friday and put in kindergarten at boarding schools. It is no wonder why there are student demonstrations protesting the loss of their childhood, and suicide rates are high for students, who fail the high standards testing.

MELBOURNE This holiday season, Sandy Maslan is determined to help a sometimes forgotten demographic. H er Mary Kay team has joined forces this year with Aging Solutions and All One S enior Day Care in Merritt I sland to prepare pampering packages for the elderly throughout Brevard County. "I t was just my way of giving back to the community, and it is so rewarding," Ms. M aslan said about the charitable effort. "Three years ago, I worked at an assisted living facility, and, from my experience with the elderly, the two things that they love the most is eating their favorite meal and being pampered." Mary Kay is a cosmetic company that specializes in skin care, makeup and body care. F or the past three years, Ms. Maslan, who is a sales director with Mary Kay, said that she has been collecting donations to put together these packages for the elderly throughout Brevard Co unty with Aging Solutions, who serves as the Office of the Public G uardian" for various counties throughout Florida. W ith a $25 donation, Ms. M aslan said the group will purchase two pairs of gripper socks from Brevard M edical, two Mary Kay hand creams and two Mary K ay lip balms. Then, with the few cents left over, Ms. Maslan said the group will put together a package that includes a holiday card telling the senior where the donation came from. Fo r some seniors, Ms. M aslan said that this will be the only gift they receive this holiday season. Last year, the group distributed more than 150 packages to seniors across Br evard County. When we delivered the products to the residents, their faces just lit up," Ms. M aslan said. "One lady was in tears and said, I don't know who you girls are, but thank you and God bless.'" Ma ry K ay will be accepting donations until the end of the year and will deliver the last of the packages in early January. F or those interested in sending a donation,contact Sandy Maslan smaslan@marykay.com. F riday, January 3, 2014 A8 MelbourneHometown News New Years Eve is this week. Here are some tips for helping y our pets deal with the celebrations. € Provide them with a safe, quiet place. A crate or small quiet room with plenty ofsafe places for them to hide is ideal. Ifyoure throwing a party, make sure your pet is secured so they dont spook and escape. € Your veterinarian may have all-natural products to ease your pets anxiety. Thundershirts, DA Pp r oducts (for canines) and F eliway products (for felines), or natural herbal therapy may help. € Medication should be used as a last resort. There are many different anxiety-reducing prescriptions for pets on the market. You should consult with y our veterinarian to determine ifyour pet can benefit from them. € Do not bring your pet with y ou to any firework displays! W hile it maybe fun for you, its painfully loud and scary for y our animal.

The Three Sopranos" will host "Around the World in 80 M inutes" on Saturday, Jan. 4 at First United Methodist Church in Melbourne. The concert is free and will begin at 6 p.m. The trio is made up of B eth Green, a music teacher at Audubon Elementary School, Sherry MacLean, a voice faculty member at Eastern Florida State College, and Terry "Tee" Rockw ell, a music teacher at Challenger 7 Elementary School. "W e have known each other for a few years and have seen each other perform individually in various venues," Ms. Rockwell said. "S herry asked Beth and me if we were interested in doing a Three Soprano C oncert' together; we all said yes,' and are very excited to share our ideas with anyone, who desires to hear." Ms. Rockwell added that each woman brings a unique vocal quality to the performance and that it's been a privilege and pleasure to sing together. When asked how the trio came up with the theme for this weekend's concert, Mrs. Green said the idea was developed when they met several times over the summer. "W e noticed that we included multiple languages in our choices of favorite songs, so we decided to incorporate the different countries into our theme," she said. "I came up with the title, playing off the famous Ju les Verne novel, Around the World in 80 Days.'" "A r ound the World in 80 M inutes" will feature an international selection of popular, light classic songs, arias and ballads, such as Three Little Maids" by G ilbert and Sullivan. Ms. Rockwell said that each song selected was chosen after the trio thought long and hard about each piece they will share at Saturday's concert. Each song has its own gift and message," she said. "O ur hope is that every ounce of the music we share will evoke something intriguing and inspiring in each soul, as they listen." Mrs. Green, who is excited about her "Laudamus Te" duet from Vivaldi's "Gloria" with Mrs. MacLean, said people should attend the performance to hear great soprano music. "W e are excited to present three inspiring women, who teach young people to appreciate music and want to demonstrate songs that we love," Mrs. Green added. There will be something for everyone. You will only see diva behavior in our encore, if the audience claps long enough for us to put on our furs." Ms. Rockwell is equally as excited for Saturday's performance. This concert, to me, is about common emotions and experiences we share as humans, no matter where y ou live in the world," Ms. R ockwell said. "We all feel happiness and sadness, love and love lost, insecurities and uncertainties, joy in simple things and disappointments in life. The music we share contains all of it in some form of song. Y ou may hear it in a song y ou know or in something new, but whichever, you are bound to be delighted as we share our hearts with you through God's incredible gift of music." The Three Sopranos will host "Around the World in 80 M inutes" on Saturday, Jan. 4 at First United Methodist Church in Melbourne. The concert is free and begins at 6 p.m. F irst United Methodist Church is located at 110 E. N ew Haven Ave., Melbourne.

D ue to early deadlines and calendar updates, some information was not available at press time. BREVARD Ally Schmidheiser was born with a love for beautiful home dŽcor. Mrs. Schmidheiser, who r uns a "Do it Yourself" and interior design blog called "H ome By Ally," said her love for repurposing furniture and interior design runs in her blood, as her great uncle o wned an interior design business for many years in W ilmington, N.C., and her mother and grandmother have kept the passion alive. "G ro wing up, I would always rearrange my bedr oom in my parents' houses and steal dŽcor from across the house to put in my ro om," Mrs. Schmidheiser said. "H ome By Ally" was launched in December 2010, while Mrs. Schmidheiser and her husband, who serves in the U.S. Air Fo rc e, we re living in North D akota. The couple moved to the Space Coast in July 2012, when Ally's husband r eceived orders at Patrick Air For ce Base. Mrs. Schmidheiser's blog re veals step-by-step instructions for projects to beautify the home, such as turning spaghetti sauce jars into soap dispensers and creating just about anything with burlap. "S ince moving to the S pace Coast, I feel my style has evolved greatly," Mrs. Schmidheiser said. "I have found my true style identity, which I call traditional cottage style mixed with Fr ench, farmhouse country style. I enjoy earth tones, natural elements and anything with a story to tell." Mrs. Schmidheiser said she believes that people should decorate their homes with things they love and that speak to them. In addition to finding her style identity, Mrs. Schmidheiser has also started a new venture teaming up with a vintage collector and opening a booth in the Wildwood Antique Mall in Melbourne. "I decided to join Wildwood Antique Mall on a whim, after speaking with my friend and partner, D awn, of Lucky Day Design C ompany," she said. "Dawn challenged me to take a chance and remember that y ou only live once." The Satellite Beach resident and her business partner share a love for all things vintage, antiques and anything with a story. "W ith furniture, what inspires me most is when I love the story that goes with it," Mrs. Schmidheiser said, or I have a story to attach to it, such as digging through mounds of furniture or a mass collection. Also from someone, who has loved and cherished it, and letting them know I will certainly do the same." The decorating duo enjoys thrifting together, gathering collections and offering advice to other clients and customers. "We have a variety of items in our booth at Wildwood Antique Mall, such as painted furniture, antiques, vintage finds and unique, handmade items, such as growth charts to record your children's growth and handmade paperweights and pumpkins for the fall," Mrs. Schmidheiser said. In addition to "Home by Ally" and her booth at the W ildwood Antique Mall, Mrs. Schmidheiser offers r epainted furniture for customers and offers custom services. "I also have design consultations available, some for large and small spaces," she added. "And even some for whole home packages." S ince partnering with Da wn of Lucky Day Design C ompany, Mrs. Schmidheiser said that much has changed about her business. "I t has allowed me to really learn to take chances and not play it safe'," Mrs. Schmidheiser said. "It is nice to have someone, who looks out for you and your best interest, as well as your business. On top of that, we find it easy to work together, because we were first friends and bring that into the partnership and business." When Mrs. Schmidheiser is not rehabbing a thrift store find or blogging, she enjoys spending time with her three dachshunds, Winston, Tito and Milo. They are our fur babies,'" Mrs. Schmidheiser said of the dogs she and her husband adopted. "Around the Space Coast, you can see us on our bicycles, with homemade doxie-boxes' on the backs of our bikes. Our fur babies' are our world and keep us just as busy as kids." W ildwood Antique Mall is located at 1240 Sarno Road, M elbourne. F or more information, visit www.homebyally.blogspot.c om or www.facebook.com/homeb yally.

I just finished up on a call with a lady who needed to download a program for work but instead ended up with some adware that completely took over her whole system. Her home page had changed, there we re other browser windows opening with webpages she had never even visited and at least two different programs opening that said she had driver and performance problems. I was connected to her machine for over an hour cleaning and removing all the adware that had installed. There were 17 different programs and "browser helpers" that had hijacked her attempt to download a simple program for work and there wasn't a lot that my caller could have done differently she didn't have a chance. I wrote in an earlier column how important it is to learn to recognize and ignore internet ads, but I will admit, sometimes it can be hard to tell the difference between an ad and the link (or button) you're supposed to click next. What happened to my caller is all too common she's an intelligent computer user who thinks through what she's doing and was following a set of steps that were to the point and accurate. So what happened? How did her machine get so worked over if she was being careful and watching her step? When I was cleaning her machine I had a chance to look at and go over the steps she was following. Pretty standard steps really there was an address to go to first to register and then download the program. The download link on the w ebsite linked to "download.com," a popular software repository that many publishers use to distribute their software. And here is where things get tricky. The link did indeed bring us to the correct download page but not without confusion. There was a banner ad along the top with the same background and colors as the legitimate portion of the page with a big green "Start Download" button and another similar button off to the side. I moved my eyes down an inch or so and saw the legitimate "Download Now" button (also in green) but I could clearly see that by that time it was too late. How is the casual user supposed to be able to tell which of the three buttons is the real one? Like I said, she didn't have a chance. A closer examination revealed the counterfeit buttons we re a part of an ad for a r egistry cleaner of some sort. Clicking either of the 2 "S tart Download" buttons would result in it installing not the program she was trying to install but some sort of system optimization program along with who knows what else. No wonder so many people are getting their systems hijacked! L uckily there is an answer to this dilemma. Yes it is still a very good idea to learn to r ecognize ads but there is a tool out there that can cut down on the number of ads y ou are subjected to. Fire up y our web browser and go to www.adblockplus.org and take a look at AdBlock Plus. It 's free (an open source project) and blocks most (but unfortunately not all) internet ads including the ones found on download.com or speedtest.net. W ith Internet Explorer, click the "Install for Internet E xplorer" button and then the "Run" option that appears at the bottom of the page. Follow the steps clicking "Install" and "E nable" when prompted. The steps are similar for Fi r efox and Chrome and there are no counterfeit ads here waiting to hijack your click. Once installed A dblock Plus will be represented as a little red stop sign icon to the right of your browsers status bar or address bar. From that little stop sign icon you can pause Adblock and see just how many ads the program blocks on whatever page yo u' re looking at. Again, Adblock Plus doesn't work for every ad I've noticed that when I go to Yahoo.com's portal page I still see ads even with A dblock running but just about everywhere else is ad free. If it's too late and you've already had a download hijacked and now you have all sorts of crazy toolbars and things installed, don't panic! Start by going to your computer's control panel and to the add/remove programs app. You should be able to sort the programs by date and you can then r emove them one by one. S ometimes that's the only option.

LLCD is NASA's first system for two-way communication using a laser instead of radio waves. It also has demonstrated an error-free data upload r ate of 20 mbps transmitted from the primary ground station in New Mexico to the spacecraft currently orbiting the moon. Si nce NASA first ventured into space, it has relied on r adio frequency communication. However, RF is reaching its limit, as demand for more data capacity continues to increase. The development and deployment of laser communications will enable NASA to extend communication capabilities such as increased image resolution and 3-D video transmission from deep space. LLCD is hosted aboard NASA's Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment E xplorer. F or more information about LLCD, visit http://llcd.gsfc.nasa.gov.

For a homeowner, one of the greatest thrills is to have a lush, green lawn all year long. Unfortunately during the winter months in F lorida, this can be a real challenge. In our area there are two types of lawns that the majority of Floridians share: S t. Augustine and Bahia. Most people have the Floratam va r iety of St. Augustine grass. B efore I get into winter lawn maintenance, I would like to talk a little about F loratam grass. The Floratam va r iety of St. Augustine grass was introduced to Florida in 1973 and is used almost exclusively to other grasses. F loratam grass has many advantages to other types of lawns. It is very adaptable and can thrive in a wide range of soils and environmental conditions. It does well in F lorida's intense sunlight. This type of lawn is also r elatively chinch bug resistant. This is a good point since many of the insecticides that we re effective for chinch bug control such as Dursban and D iazinon have been removed from the market. Floratam is also a fast grower that can fill in empty areas of your lawn fairly quickly. The thickness of the lawn also helps to control w eeds. B ahia grass, on the other hand, offers some disadvantages over its rival. During the growing season it produces large seed heads and over time, the lawn can thin out which will allow weeds and other wild grasses to take ov er. It also needs a large amount of iron or the grass will yellow during the spring and fall. It also has a very course texture. No w let's talk about keeping it green. During the winter months, all lawns can have times when they thin out or just do not grow as rapidly as they do during the remaining times of the year. This can cause bare spots and browning. This can be especially problematic after a freeze or heavy frost. One way to ensure your lawn stays green looking and limits the intrusion of weeds is to ov erseed with rye grass. When y ou overseed your lawn with ry egrass, you help keep that green look all winter long. When the warmer weather arrives, the ryegrass will die out and your lawn will again fill in very nicely for the r emainder of the growing season. As the ryegrass dies off, it acts as a natural fertilizer as it decomposes in the soil. If you have a Bahia lawn, you may have to ov erseed with Bahia grass seed in the spring. If you have a Floratam lawn, you can fill in patches with grass plugs. R emember, Floratam is not available in seed form. Pr oper watering and fertilizer is also essential to a healthy lawn. Always keep y our lawn evenly moist. U nder watering as well as ov er-watering can both cause problems such as drying out or fungus, for example. A regular fertilizer program is essential for a lush green lawn. You should apply a good quality slow release lawn food about once every 3 months. February is an excellent time to apply a good quality weed and feed. A w eed and feed product has the advantage of both feeding y our lawn and getting rid of annoying weeds. Ca re should be exercised when choosing weed control products because you can only use certain herbicides on certain lawns. If you have a F loratam lawn, be sure you choose a product that contains Atrazine. This is a safe herbicide for use in St. A ugustine variety grasses. If y ou have Bahia grass, choose a product with 2.4D or an equivalent. Use of the wrong herbicide can have very undesirable effects. Always apply your fertilizer according to the package directions and always use a spreader. Never try to apply lawn food by hand. W ith a little care and some work, you too can have a green lawn year-round! J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.

On Tuesday, Dec. 17, Health F irst Palm Bay Hospital and the city of Palm Bay Fire Rescue teamed up to help increase public awareness about the dangers of Christmas tree fires within a residence. At H ealth First Palm Bay Hospital, Christmas trees were set on fire to demonstrate how easily they can ignite and burn.

Niemi, DMD 082481 want people to know that we will always give you all the treatment options for your pet and make medical recommendations without trying to push you in one direction or another. W ith the veterinary industry moving toward large, multi-doctor facilities, where a client might see several different veterinarians, the Sikoskis have discovered that people often desire to see just one vet, or in their case, a husband and wife team; this small-office feeling gives clients the opportunity to build relationships with the doctor and staff members. I n order to grow, we developed the idea of expanding to new locations in the county, while keeping the small clinic feel and personal touch of the single doctor practice, Dr. Sikoski said. Our vision is to create a family of clinics that each practice similar styles of veterinary medicine, while still bringing what we believe is a unique and hard-to-find personal touch and bond between the doctor and the patient. S ensitive to their clients desire to be conservative with medical care for their pets, Dr. Sikoski and her husband want them to understand that maintaining a good quality of life for their animals can be made possible, even on a budget. All three of our locations are considered full-service, meaning we provide everything from routine wellness exams and vaccines to onsite diagnostics blood work, radiographs, urinalysis to surgical procedures, r anging from routine spays, neuters and dentals to mass r emovals, cystotomies and abdominal exploratory surgeries. Dr Sikoski said she cannot stress enough the importance of having your pet get a thorough, quality exam by a veterinarian on at least a y early basis. While the three clinics o wned by the Sikoskis mainly care for cats and dogs, Dr. P aul Sikoski also sees pocket pets, such as ferrets, rabbits, sugar gliders, reptiles and some avian species, at P alm Bay Animal Clinic. W ith the addition of C oquina Ridge Animal Clinic in Melbourne, each clinic is now 20 minutes from the next, and we hope to be able to accommodate clients schedules even better by having the option for their pet to be seen at an alternate location on days their primary location might be closed, Dr. Sikoski said. F or example, Palm Bay Animal Clinic is closed on W ednesdays, while Clearlake Animal Hospital and C oquina Ridge Animal Clinic are both open. Clearlake is closed on Saturdays, while P alm Bay and Coquina are open from 8 to 11 a.m. Dr Sikoski added that Dr. K ate Berberick will begin seeing patients at Coquina Ridge Animal Clinic on Jan. 2. O ur goal is to provide you and your pet with compassionate and quality veterinary care, while offering you affordable treatment options, Dr. Sikoski said. W e believe that by providing you with a better understanding of your pets health through veterinary consultation and educational materials, we are empowering you to make the best decisions for your pet and strengthen their bond with your family.

This was the first year that H ealth First Palm Bay Hospital and the city of Palm B ay Fire Rescue has teamed up for the demonstration. This event was a great visual on how fire from a dry Christmas tree can easily ignite Mr. Bailey said. This information is important for all holiday celebrations whether youre cooking, hanging lights or having that holiday fire in your fire place. You should always be aware of your surroundings. Yu ri M ykoo, hospital director of clinical nursing at Health First Palm Bay H ospital, agreed that the demonstration of the burning Christmas tree served as a great reminder of the potential danger. W e wanted to take this opportunity to remind people how important it is to be aware of potential dangers with Christmas trees, she said. While minor burns can be treated at home, if y ou are ever in any doubt whether you need medical assistance, call 911 or go the nearest emergency room. Mr. Bailey said, in addition to keeping a live Christmas tree watered, people should also be aware of the heat sources that around trees, such as candles, heaters and fireplaces. A ccording to the National Fi re Pr otection Association, D ecember is the peak time of year for home candle fires, with more than half of home candle fires occurri ng when something catches fire that is too close to the candle. Also, one out of every three Christmas tree fires are caused by electrical problems and a heat source too close to the tree causes one out of every six fires.FiresF rom page A1 Photo courtesy of Health First Palm Bay HospitalOn Tuesday, Dec. 17, Health First Palm Bay Hospital and the city of Palm Bay Fire Rescue hosted a Christmas tree burning visual to demonstrate safety procedures when dealing with Christmas tree fires. group of doll makers, whose mission is to further the enjoyment and appreciation of art dolls, develop individual creativity, help doll makers grow in excellence and promote doll making as an art. The dolls the SCDA create use a variety of mediums, including clay and fabric. Doll making is an art form that encompasses many media and techniques, including design, sculpture, fiber art, painting, sewing, surface design and embellishment, said Linda Gieger, a member of SCDA. The results range from the sublime to the r idiculous. The idea for the event came from the friendship between Brevard Museum director Nancy Rader and Ms. Gieger. M any years ago, the museum hosted a similar exhibit, with dolls made specifically inspired by the W indover Exhibit, Mrs. B urris said. She explored the option of the SCDA doing something similar at the museum. The SCDA toured the museum, felt inspired and the exhibit was created. The entire museum will be open during Fridays event and attendees are encouraged to view all of the exhibits offered, as well as to find the doll in each exhibit. The dolls are not toys, but works of art that, as most art works, evolve magically in the process of creation, Ms. Gieger said. S ometimes, they make a statement about the artist; sometimes, they have been inspired by a pattern, photograph or a dream. Most often, they are simply beautifully-crafted figures. Ms. Gieger added that patrons of the arts will enjoy the wide variety of dolls and will undoubtedly find the dolls unique, amusing and wonderful. W e at Space Coast Doll Artists are thrilled to be part of the museum for this event, Ms. Gieger said. The Brevard Museum of N atural History and Science will host the exhibit opening a collection of dolls handcrafted by the Space C oast Doll Artists on Friday, Jan. 10 at 6 p.m. T ickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.

Santas Little Helpers make Christmas brighter MELBOURNE Girl Scout troops from all across Br evard County came together to help those in need this holiday season. On Wednesday, Dec. 11, the Girl Scouts of Citrus C ouncil, Voyager Service U nit hosted the Santas Little Helpers Christmas party, where each scout brought an unwrapped gift to bring to Santa. A total of 120 gifts we re collected and donated to children in need. I am the new Service Unit manager, and my goal for our unit is to be seen as a huge force of good in our community, said Marcy H utchens, who is also a troop leader for the Daisies. I know people often only associate Girl Scouts with cookies and asking people to buy them, but I wanted to show that our Girl Scouts are more than that. N atalie French, the leader of a Junior Girl Scouts and D aisy Troop from Meado wlane Elementary School, came up with the idea for the Santas Little Helpers service project. S he wanted to come up with a fun way for our y ounger girls to make a difference, Mrs. Hutchens said. Mo re than 100 Girl Scouts attended the Santas Little H elpers Christmas party, with 120 gifts collected. W e had a volunteer S anta, balloon fun, crafts cookies and hot cocoa, Mrs. Hutchens added. Of the 120 unwrapped presents collected, 10 were donated to Lamp Lighter families, with the other 110 gifts given to The Giving Tr ee, a project started by two cadets, Kayleigh Remer and Jamie Stahl, in Troop No 4123, to help them earn their Silver Award. This project helped The W omens Center give battered and abused children and mothers a better Christmas, Mrs. Hutchens said. I t was important because it teaches our girls to think of an idea, create a plan of action and make it happen. Mrs. Hutchens said that the Girl Scouts of Citrus C ouncil, Voyager Service U nit, plan to make Santas Little Helpers an annual event.By Amanda Hatfield AndersonAhatfield@hometownnewsol.com Photo courtesy of Michelle CederquistStephanie Corcoran and Ruth Taylor, employees at the W omens Center, stand with all of the gifts donated by the Girl Scout Troops, who participated in the inaugural Santas Little Helpers event. bourne.

While sitting at a light waiting for the light to change, twice I had someone back into my bumper. The second time was really hard. And then I had a lady backing up at a Publixs shopping center, an elderly lady, and I was beeping my horn to let her know that she was backing up too fast. S he then rams the front of my car. I got out and said, Didnt you hear me beep? N o, I cant hear. Im deaf. W ell, OK. So much for that! I dont know where these drivers are coming from, but something has to be done. It s a shame that good drivers like me and this other woman who wrote in had her rates go up. This is not fair. Something needs to be done. Thank you.Bad audio on TV and in moviesThank you very much for this wonderful paper you continue to give us. It is the only paper that I know of that has good news in it. I guess this is considered a rant. It is concerning the background, supposedly, noise and music on the TV and the movies. It is supposed to be background noise, but it is a lot louder than the people speaking. Pe ople, who have hearing problems, and there are a lot of us, makes it very hard to hear and understand what the people and characters are saying on TV and in the movies.K eep your dogs out of the grocery storeI want to know why dogs, and I dont mean seeing-eye dogs, are allowed in our grocery stores now. I dont like it. I dont want to buy groceries where they are. So can somebody please explain to me why people cannot go grocery shopping without their dogs? Thank you very much.The new Health Insurance Marketplace options availableIn the article "The new Health Insurance Marketplace options available" in the Oct. 25 Hometown News, you quote a report, released by the Department of Health and H uman Services, which claims that "in state after state, consumers will see increased competition in the health insurance marketplace, leading to new and affordable choices for consumers." B efore I logged on to www.healthcare.gov, I actually believed this and thought that GOP objections to "Obamacare" were simply partisan politics at it's worst. I could not have been more wrong. After a number of unsuccessful attempts to log in to H ealth Insurance Marketplace, I was finally able to get on the site, dutifully answered all of the questions, including that my current income is $4,471 per year, or $372.58 per month. I was a bit surprised to find that I was unable to qualify for any of the much touted "government help" for lowincome citizens. I was much more shocked when I looked at the premiums of the plans I am eligible for. The very least expensive plan, which covers none of my current doctors and has a $6,300 deductible more than my total annual income, is $283.69 per month more than 75 percent, yes, three quarters of my income. The least expensive plan that covers any of my existing doctors costs $377.82. That is more than I make each month. U nlike the federal government, I can't spend more than I make each month. Again, the annual deductibles are more than my annual income. How can President (Barack) Obama claim that help is available for low-income citizens, when someone who makes less than the premiums is ineligible? To add insult to injury, I was just informed that Blue Cross is doing away with my current health insurance, which costs only $87 per month for myself and my curr ently unemployed daughter, because the plan doesn't comply with Affordable Healthcare Act guidelines. While it was not a great plan, because it didn't cover hospitalization, it did at least covers our doctors and prescriptions. I'm curious to know how many other central Floridians are actually losing their health insurance thanks to "Obamacare."Response to Rant: Real Estate is different in Florida I am a Realtor, listing and selling in Brevard County since 1995.

Mismanagement waste companyThis is about the handling of the new waste collection containers in Merritt Island. The new containers were delivered late in September to homes along South Tropical Trail. At the time of the delivery, the workmen were asked why they were leaving the larger containers at a 55-plus complex. The worker said that he knew they were to get the smaller ones, but his work order showed that he was to leave these. A call to Waste Management was made by some of the ow ners in this complex, and we were told that they knew we we re to get the smaller cans and they would be changed out in two weeks. So we had to use the larger ones until the change out could be made. A later call to Waste Management received the information that the containers would be changed out on Nov. 1. M eanwhile, the recycle containers had not been picked VIEWPOINTFRIDAY, JAN. 3, 2014 HOMETOWN NEWS WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSOL.COM Finding treasures in the sandPhoto by Paul LepinskieQuinn, 5, and Tara Fleming took part in the Barrier Island Centers Build a Sandman contest, Saturday, Dec. 28.

Dear Fellow Floridian, As another year comes to a close, I am once again very proud of the successes my team at the Department of Financial Services has made possible. With their help, we have made great strides to protect F loridians from fraud as w ell as the damaging impacts of fire and arson. We have also helped F lorida consumers make smart financial decisions and helped return millions in unclaimed property to its rightful owners, among many other accomplishments. O ur dedicated fraud investigators work tirelessly day in and day out to keep your hard earned money where it belongs; in your pocket. While their work never ends, 2013 brought significant success in the fight against fraudsters. Fraud related arrests totaled more than 1,600 this year. While serving as your state fire marshal, my r espect for the service and commitment of our state's firefighters has only increased each day. Whether working to investigate and prosecute arson-related crimes, train prospective students or educate the community about fire prevention, our team remains steadfast in their commitment to protect Florida's citizens and their property against the damaging impacts of fire and arson. This year, our team responded to more than 3,200 fires and arrested nearly 300 people for committing arson. O ur consumer services helpline has professionals r eady to help any and all F loridians with their insurance-related needs. Whether you need an explanation of a current policy, have questions about the upcoming changes to the health insurance industry or need an advocate to help settle an insurance dispute, our team is ready and willing to assist. This y ear, our helpline assisted with nearly 20,000 r equests and helped r ecover nearly $27 million for Floridians. In addition to the millions recovered through our consumer services helpline, our department has also helped return more than $212 million to Floridians in 2013 through our unclaimed property program. When our team is able to reunite families with loved ones' treasured heirlooms, inheritance funds, or even a little cash one simply forgot existed, it is very rewarding for our entire team. While the unclaimed property or money remains yours to r eclaim at any time, the unclaimed property fund works to support our public school system yearr ound. I am proud our team is not only able to r eturn what's rightfully y ours, but is also working to protect the education of our next generation while doing so. O ur team has worked hard to serve the people of F lorida, and I assure you that 2014 won't be any different. I'm as committed as I have ever been to putting more fraudsters behind bars and further promoting fiscal accountability and transparency around the state.

Pr oponents have not told the public that to maintain high standards, school days are eight to 10 hours with four hours of homework and the school year is 220230 days. There are no sports or extra curricular activities. B ut, these schools are free and governments run. F or students, who fail the eighth-grade test and want to go to college, the parents must pay for a private college. Par ents in the United S tates will not stand for subjecting their children to these schedules, especially in government-run schools. In at lease one system, 3y ear-olds are taken from their parents Monday through Friday and put in kindergarten at boarding schools. It is no wonder why there are student demonstrations protesting the loss of their childhood, and suicide rates are high for students, who fail the high standards testing.

MELBOURNE This holiday season, Sandy Maslan is determined to help a sometimes forgotten demographic. H er Mary Kay team has joined forces this year with Aging Solutions and All One S enior Day Care in Merritt I sland to prepare pampering packages for the elderly throughout Brevard County. I t was just my way of giving back to the community, and it is so rewarding, Ms. M aslan said about the charitable effort. Three years ago, I worked at an assisted living facility, and, from my experience with the elderly, the two things that they love the most is eating their favorite meal and being pampered. Mary Kay is a cosmetic company that specializes in skin care, makeup and body care. F or the past three years, Ms. Maslan, who is a sales director with Mary Kay, said that she has been collecting donations to put together these packages for the elderly throughout Brevard Co unty with Aging Solutions, who serves as the Office of the Public G uardian for various counties throughout Florida. W ith a $25 donation, Ms. M aslan said the group will purchase two pairs of gripper socks from Brevard M edical, two Mary Kay hand creams and two Mary K ay lip balms. Then, with the few cents left over, Ms. Maslan said the group will put together a package that includes a holiday card telling the senior where the donation came from. Fo r some seniors, Ms. M aslan said that this will be the only gift they receive this holiday season. Last year, the group distributed more than 150 packages to seniors across Br evard County. When we delivered the products to the residents, their faces just lit up, Ms. M aslan said. One lady was in tears and said, I dont know who you girls are, but thank you and God bless. Ma ry K ay will be accepting donations until the end of the year and will deliver the last of the packages in early January. F or those interested in sending a donation,contact Sandy Maslan smaslan@marykay.com. F riday, January 3, 2014 A8 MelbourneHometown News New Years Eve is this week. Here are some tips for helping your pets deal with the celebrations. Provide them with a safe, quiet place. A crate or small quiet room with plenty ofsafe places for them to hide is ideal. Ifyoure throwing a party, make sure your pet is secured so they dont spook and escape. Your veterinarian may have all-natural products to ease your pets anxiety. Thundershirts, DA Ppr oducts (for canines) and F eliway products (for felines), or natural herbal therapy may help. Medication should be used as a last resort. There are many different anxiety-reducing prescriptions for pets on the market. You should consult with y our veterinarian to determine ifyour pet can benefit from them. Do not bring your pet with y ou to any firework displays! W hile it maybe fun for you, its painfully loud and scary for y our animal.

The Three Sopranos will host Around the World in 80 M inutes on Saturday, Jan. 4 at First United Methodist Church in Melbourne. The concert is free and will begin at 6 p.m. The trio is made up of B eth Green, a music teacher at Audubon Elementary School, Sherry MacLean, a voice faculty member at Eastern Florida State College, and Terry Tee Rockw ell, a music teacher at Challenger 7 Elementary School. W e have known each other for a few years and have seen each other perform individually in various venues, Ms. Rockwell said. S herry asked Beth and me if we were interested in doing a Three Soprano C oncert together; we all said yes, and are very excited to share our ideas with anyone, who desires to hear. Ms. Rockwell added that each woman brings a unique vocal quality to the performance and that its been a privilege and pleasure to sing together. When asked how the trio came up with the theme for this weekends concert, Mrs. Green said the idea was developed when they met several times over the summer. W e noticed that we included multiple languages in our choices of favorite songs, so we decided to incorporate the different countries into our theme, she said. I came up with the title, playing off the famous Ju les Verne novel, Around the World in 80 Days. Ar ound the World in 80 M inutes will feature an international selection of popular, light classic songs, arias and ballads, such as Three Little Maids by G ilbert and Sullivan. Ms. Rockwell said that each song selected was chosen after the trio thought long and hard about each piece they will share at Saturdays concert. Each song has its own gift and message, she said. O ur hope is that every ounce of the music we share will evoke something intriguing and inspiring in each soul, as they listen. Mrs. Green, who is excited about her Laudamus Te duet from Vivaldis Gloria with Mrs. MacLean, said people should attend the performance to hear great soprano music. W e are excited to present three inspiring women, who teach young people to appreciate music and want to demonstrate songs that we love, Mrs. Green added. There will be something for everyone. You will only see diva behavior in our encore, if the audience claps long enough for us to put on our furs. Ms. Rockwell is equally as excited for Saturdays performance. This concert, to me, is about common emotions and experiences we share as humans, no matter where y ou live in the world, Ms. R ockwell said. We all feel happiness and sadness, love and love lost, insecurities and uncertainties, joy in simple things and disappointments in life. The music we share contains all of it in some form of song. Y ou may hear it in a song y ou know or in something new, but whichever, you are bound to be delighted as we share our hearts with you through Gods incredible gift of music. The Three Sopranos will host Around the World in 80 M inutes on Saturday, Jan. 4 at First United Methodist Church in Melbourne. The concert is free and begins at 6 p.m. F irst United Methodist Church is located at 110 E. N ew Haven Ave., Melbourne.

D ue to early deadlines and calendar updates, some information was not available at press time. BREVARD Ally Schmidheiser was born with a love for beautiful home dcor. Mrs. Schmidheiser, who r uns a Do it Yourself and interior design blog called H ome By Ally, said her love for repurposing furniture and interior design runs in her blood, as her great uncle o wned an interior design business for many years in W ilmington, N.C., and her mother and grandmother have kept the passion alive. G ro wing up, I would always rearrange my bedr oom in my parents houses and steal dcor from across the house to put in my ro om, Mrs. Schmidheiser said. H ome By Ally was launched in December 2010, while Mrs. Schmidheiser and her husband, who serves in the U.S. Air Fo rce, we re living in North D akota. The couple moved to the Space Coast in July 2012, when Allys husband r eceived orders at Patrick Air For ce Base. Mrs. Schmidheisers blog re veals step-by-step instructions for projects to beautify the home, such as turning spaghetti sauce jars into soap dispensers and creating just about anything with burlap. Since moving to the S pace Coast, I feel my style has evolved greatly, Mrs. Schmidheiser said. I have found my true style identity, which I call traditional cottage style mixed with French, farmhouse country style. I enjoy earth tones, natural elements and anything with a story to tell. Mrs. Schmidheiser said she believes that people should decorate their homes with things they love and that speak to them. In addition to finding her style identity, Mrs. Schmidheiser has also started a new venture teaming up with a vintage collector and opening a booth in the Wildwood Antique Mall in Melbourne. I decided to join Wildwood Antique Mall on a whim, after speaking with my friend and partner, D awn, of Lucky Day Design C ompany, she said. Dawn challenged me to take a chance and remember that y ou only live once. The Satellite Beach resident and her business partner share a love for all things vintage, antiques and anything with a story. W ith furniture, what inspires me most is when I love the story that goes with it, Mrs. Schmidheiser said, or I have a story to attach to it, such as digging through mounds of furniture or a mass collection. Also from someone, who has loved and cherished it, and letting them know I will certainly do the same. The decorating duo enjoys thrifting together, gathering collections and offering advice to other clients and customers. We have a variety of items in our booth at Wildwood Antique Mall, such as painted furniture, antiques, vintage finds and unique, handmade items, such as growth charts to record your childrens growth and handmade paperweights and pumpkins for the fall, Mrs. Schmidheiser said. In addition to Home by Ally and her booth at the W ildwood Antique Mall, Mrs. Schmidheiser offers r epainted furniture for customers and offers custom services. I also have design consultations available, some for large and small spaces, she added. And even some for whole home packages. S ince partnering with Da wn of Lucky Day Design C ompany, Mrs. Schmidheiser said that much has changed about her business. I t has allowed me to really learn to take chances and not play it safe, Mrs. Schmidheiser said. It is nice to have someone, who looks out for you and your best interest, as well as your business. On top of that, we find it easy to work together, because we were first friends and bring that into the partnership and business. When Mrs. Schmidheiser is not rehabbing a thrift store find or blogging, she enjoys spending time with her three dachshunds, Winston, Tito and Milo. They are our fur babies, Mrs. Schmidheiser said of the dogs she and her husband adopted. Around the Space Coast, you can see us on our bicycles, with homemade doxie-boxes on the backs of our bikes. Our fur babies are our world and keep us just as busy as kids. W ildwood Antique Mall is located at 1240 Sarno Road, M elbourne.

I just finished up on a call with a lady who needed to download a program for work but instead ended up with some adware that completely took over her whole system. Her home page had changed, there we re other browser windows opening with webpages she had never even visited and at least two different programs opening that said she had driver and performance problems. I was connected to her machine for over an hour cleaning and removing all the adware that had installed. There were 17 different programs and browser helpers that had hijacked her attempt to download a simple program for work and there wasnt a lot that my caller could have done differently she didnt have a chance. I wrote in an earlier column how important it is to learn to recognize and ignore internet ads, but I will admit, sometimes it can be hard to tell the difference between an ad and the link (or button) youre supposed to click next. What happened to my caller is all too common shes an intelligent computer user who thinks through what shes doing and was following a set of steps that were to the point and accurate. So what happened? How did her machine get so worked over if she was being careful and watching her step? When I was cleaning her machine I had a chance to look at and go over the steps she was following. Pretty standard steps really there was an address to go to first to register and then download the program. The download link on the w ebsite linked to download.com, a popular software repository that many publishers use to distribute their software. And here is where things get tricky. The link did indeed bring us to the correct download page but not without confusion. There was a banner ad along the top with the same background and colors as the legitimate portion of the page with a big green Start Download button and another similar button off to the side. I moved my eyes down an inch or so and saw the legitimate Download Now button (also in green) but I could clearly see that by that time it was too late. How is the casual user supposed to be able to tell which of the three buttons is the real one? Like I said, she didnt have a chance. A closer examination revealed the counterfeit buttons we re a part of an ad for a r egistry cleaner of some sort. Clicking either of the 2 S tart Download buttons would result in it installing not the program she was trying to install but some sort of system optimization program along with who knows what else. No wonder so many people are getting their systems hijacked! L uckily there is an answer to this dilemma. Yes it is still a very good idea to learn to r ecognize ads but there is a tool out there that can cut down on the number of ads y ou are subjected to. Fire up y our web browser and go to www.adblockplus.org and take a look at AdBlock Plus. It s free (an open source project) and blocks most (but unfortunately not all) internet ads including the ones found on download.com or speedtest.net. W ith Internet Explorer, click the Install for Internet E xplorer button and then the Run option that appears at the bottom of the page. Follow the steps clicking Install and E nable when prompted. The steps are similar for Fir efox and Chrome and there are no counterfeit ads here waiting to hijack your click. Once installed A dblock Plus will be represented as a little red stop sign icon to the right of your browsers status bar or address bar. From that little stop sign icon you can pause Adblock and see just how many ads the program blocks on whatever page yo u re looking at. Again, Adblock Plus doesnt work for every ad Ive noticed that when I go to Yahoo.coms portal page I still see ads even with A dblock running but just about everywhere else is ad free. If its too late and youve already had a download hijacked and now you have all sorts of crazy toolbars and things installed, dont panic! Start by going to your computers control panel and to the add/remove programs app. You should be able to sort the programs by date and you can then r emove them one by one. S ometimes thats the only option.

LLCD is NASA's first system for two-way communication using a laser instead of radio waves. It also has demonstrated an error-free data upload r ate of 20 mbps transmitted from the primary ground station in New Mexico to the spacecraft currently orbiting the moon. Si nce NASA first ventured into space, it has relied on r adio frequency communication. However, RF is reaching its limit, as demand for more data capacity continues to increase. The development and deployment of laser communications will enable NASA to extend communication capabilities such as increased image resolution and 3-D video transmission from deep space. LLCD is hosted aboard NASA's Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment E xplorer. F or more information about LLCD, visit http://llcd.gsfc.nasa.gov.

For a homeowner, one of the greatest thrills is to have a lush, green lawn all year long. Unfortunately during the winter months in F lorida, this can be a real challenge. In our area there are two types of lawns that the majority of Floridians share: S t. Augustine and Bahia. Most people have the Floratam var iety of St. Augustine grass. B efore I get into winter lawn maintenance, I would like to talk a little about F loratam grass. The Floratam var iety of St. Augustine grass was introduced to Florida in 1973 and is used almost exclusively to other grasses. F loratam grass has many advantages to other types of lawns. It is very adaptable and can thrive in a wide range of soils and environmental conditions. It does well in F loridas intense sunlight. This type of lawn is also r elatively chinch bug resistant. This is a good point since many of the insecticides that we re effective for chinch bug control such as Dursban and D iazinon have been removed from the market. Floratam is also a fast grower that can fill in empty areas of your lawn fairly quickly. The thickness of the lawn also helps to control w eeds. B ahia grass, on the other hand, offers some disadvantages over its rival. During the growing season it produces large seed heads and over time, the lawn can thin out which will allow weeds and other wild grasses to take ov er. It also needs a large amount of iron or the grass will yellow during the spring and fall. It also has a very course texture. Now lets talk about keeping it green. During the winter months, all lawns can have times when they thin out or just do not grow as rapidly as they do during the remaining times of the year. This can cause bare spots and browning. This can be especially problematic after a freeze or heavy frost. One way to ensure your lawn stays green looking and limits the intrusion of weeds is to ov erseed with rye grass. When y ou overseed your lawn with ry egrass, you help keep that green look all winter long. When the warmer weather arrives, the ryegrass will die out and your lawn will again fill in very nicely for the r emainder of the growing season. As the ryegrass dies off, it acts as a natural fertilizer as it decomposes in the soil. If you have a Bahia lawn, you may have to ov erseed with Bahia grass seed in the spring. If you have a Floratam lawn, you can fill in patches with grass plugs. R emember, Floratam is not available in seed form. Pr oper watering and fertilizer is also essential to a healthy lawn. Always keep y our lawn evenly moist. U nder watering as well as ov er-watering can both cause problems such as drying out or fungus, for example. A regular fertilizer program is essential for a lush green lawn. You should apply a good quality slow release lawn food about once every 3 months. February is an excellent time to apply a good quality weed and feed. A w eed and feed product has the advantage of both feeding y our lawn and getting rid of annoying weeds. Ca re should be exercised when choosing weed control products because you can only use certain herbicides on certain lawns. If you have a F loratam lawn, be sure you choose a product that contains Atrazine. This is a safe herbicide for use in St. A ugustine variety grasses. If y ou have Bahia grass, choose a product with 2.4D or an equivalent. Use of the wrong herbicide can have very undesirable effects. Always apply your fertilizer according to the package directions and always use a spreader. Never try to apply lawn food by hand. W ith a little care and some work, you too can have a green lawn year-round! J oe Zelenak has more than 30 years experience in gardening and landscape.
