She will be presented en-US with the Gold Award in a ceremony this June.en-US The Gold Award is the highest award a Girl en-US Scout can achieve and is a rare accomplishment en-US among scouts, with less than 6 percent of eligien-US-en-US ble Girl Scouts achieving the award, according en-US to the Girl Scouts of America website.en-US Her Gold Award project involved protecting en-US the gopher tortoise through education and en-US awareness with signs and proclamations involven-US -en-US ing Brevard mayors and local organizations.en-US Ive always been really passionate about anien-US -en-US mals, Ms. Lee explained.

I volunen-US -en-US teered to do the newsletter and as time en-US evolved, quickly I became the leader of the en-US group. It has been very rewarding, and with en-US the help of members and an excellent advien-US -en-US sory board, we have grown to a membership en-US of 250 folks on our email list, and an average en-US attendance at meetings of 30 to 65. Our en-US seminars average 200 attendees.en-US According to officials, the seminar will be en-US focused on three main topics.en-US Dr. Ira Goodman of BioClinica will proen-US -en-US vide information about the latest clinical trien-US -en-US als for Parkinsons disease, officials stated. en-US Susan Blakeslee of VITAS Healthcare will en-US lead a discussion on the relationship en-US dynamics and challenges for Parkinsons en-US patients and their spouses/caregivers, and en-US details on the Rock Steady Boxing exercise en-US program will be presented by fitness trainers en-US Janice Moia of Advance Fitness and David en-US DiQuollo of Unlimited Kickboxing. en-US Event sponsorships for the free event are en-US providing funding for Rock Steady Boxing en-US training and certification for the aforemenen-US-en-US tioned facilitators.en-US One Senior Place and PSGB began worken-US -en-US ing together last October during the PSGB en-US Parkinsons Care Fair, which was a huge en-US success, according to one official.en-US Mrs. Kreps also discussed some of the en-US challenges of working with people suffering en-US from Parkinsons Disease, or have recently en-US learned that they have the disease.en-US I receive calls from folks who are in en-US shock, angry, and/or depressed, and I do my en-US best to listen and encourage them, Mrs. en-US Kreps said. Sometimes I think it keeps me en-US too focused on Parkinsons since I also walk en-US this journey but it has given my diagnosis en-US purpose, and made a difference, and I am en-US grateful for the opportunity to make it en-US something positive.en-US It also is hard to keep encouraging everyen-US-en-US one diagnosed to realize that exercise is 50 percent of delaying the progression of en-USthis disease, Mrs. Kreps continued. That is en-US why we are so excited to finally offer Rock en-US Steady Boxing in this area. It is internationen-US -en-US ally known and documented that this form en-US of exercise improves the condition considen-US -en-US erably and at the same time provides team en-US participation.en-US The PSGB helps provide support through en-US once-a-month meetings at The Fountains in en-US Palm Bay on the fourth Thursday of the en-US month, from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m.en-US We have special speakers and share our en-US experiences and compare notes as we walk en-US this journey together, Mrs. Kreps explained. en-US Our motto is you are not alone. en-US For more information about the event, en-US call (321) 751-6771. en-USBy Austin en-USyears ago at Wickham Park as she was riden-US -en-US ing horses in a ring. There was a gopher en-US tortoise nearby, she said, when someone en-US went to pick the tortoise up and bring it to en-US the pond.en-US I told the person that gopher tortoises en-US dont swim and theyre protected so you en-US cant pick them up and move them, Ms. en-US Lee said. Theyll drown if theyre in en-US water. The person heard me but kind of en-US ignored me so my mom had to speak up en-US for that.en-US Ms. Lee took the initiative to educate en-US the public about the importance of gopher en-US tortoises, which are a threatened species en-US in Florida, by creating Gopher Tortoise en-US Crossing signs and educational signs to en-US be placed in Wickham Park.en-US Ms. Lee was also able to get the support en-GBScouten-USFrom page 1en-GB Seeen-GB en-GB SCOUTen-GB page 9

Runway 5-23 is en-US the primary runway for FITs flight trainen-US -en-US ing school.en-US More than 100 aviation enthusiasts en-US lined the runway today to watch three airen-US -en-US craft take to the skies in the direction of en-US the Atlantic Ocean, flying from the runen-US -en-US way to the coastline in seconds.en-US The runway rehabilitation cost nearly en-US $1.3 million, of which the State of Florida en-US Department of Transportation contributen-US-en-US ed half.

I en-US do comic book conventions and Im also en-US one of the managers for the local Space en-US Coast Comic Con, and so many people en-US dress up in costumes (called cosplayers). en-US So, Im hoping I attract cosplayers, who en-US are really committed to the art and put in en-US the time and really go all out.en-US Extras who are interested in dancing en-US are asked to arrive at 10 a.m. to learn choen-US -en-US reography. Actors and extras should en-US arrive before noon as that is when filming en-US will begin. Jersey Mikes will cater the en-US event.en-US Mr. Estrada said he hopes to make this en-US the largest zombie walk recorded in Breen-US -en-US vard County. Zombie extras are needed to en-US film a scene in which a dramatic fight en-US leads into a spoof of Michael Jacksons en-US Thriller dance.en-US The movie is titled after Mr. Estradas en-US comic book series under the same name. en-US Bocas is the main character, a vigilante en-US fallen archangel who spends his time on en-US Earth fighting for justice.en-US Bocas is a dream come true, Mr. en-US Estrada said. I molded the character for en-US my father and its one of those things, en-US being that Im a proud American, but Im en-US also proud of my ethnic background as a en-US Puerto Rican. It was another thing for me en-US to create a Puerto Rican-inspired characen-US -en-US ter with Hispanic names, so for many en-US other young Hispanics to see characters en-US more like themselves.en-US The movie is a continuation of the en-US comic book series, which will introduce en-US some new faces as well as re-introduce en-US some of the old.en-US Filming started about three months en-US ago, according to Mr. Estrada, and took en-US place in some familiar Brevard locations en-US such as Love Bugs Bakery on Wickham en-US Road, Wickham Park and Cocoa.en-US Mr. Estrada said he anticipates to be en-US done filming by May and plans to enter en-US the movie in film festivals, as well as en-US release it to local theaters and will sell it to en-US the public.en-US Mr. Estrada will also star as Bocas, with en-US Chuck Fresh starring as Junior, David en-US Grace as Gusano, Matt Moller as The en-US Stranger and Karen Wooden as El en-US Duea.en-US Mr. Fresh will also be credited alongen-US-en-US side Mr. Estrada as director, writer, en-US screenplay writer and producer.

When I en-US first got here, I dont know if I could say en-US that.en-US Some of the challenges Mr. Lynk faced en-US three years ago when he left the private en-US sector to work for Palm Bay included a en-US residential community with little to no en-US growth, lack of a commercial base and en-US neglected infrastructure.en-US One of his marching orders from the en-US City Council was to make the city a busien-US-en-US ness-friendly environment.en-US Speaking predominantly to business en-US community members during the April 4 en-US Chamber of Commerce meeting, Mr. en-US Lynk referred to the city as a business.en-US Palm Bay as a corporation is worth en-US $3.7 billion, he said. We have to take en-US care of it and grow it.en-US In 2015, Lynk and city staff members en-US set a three-year goal of $320 million in en-US new development with 20 percent of that en-US coming from commercial growth.en-US We met that goal and surpassed it, he en-US said.en-US As of March 2018, $541 million had en-US gone through the citys growth manageen-US-en-US ment department with 20 percent of that en-US being commercial.en-US The city also refinanced $35 million of en-US its debt, which resulted in a first-year saven-US-en-US ings of $800,000. The money was used to en-US purchase new police cars.en-US Over the life of the debt, the city will en-US save $8 million, Mr. Lynk said.en-US Additionally, the city is looking at an en-US annual savings of more than $1.2 million en-US after the strategic reorganization of the en-US city attorneys office in which several outen-US-en-US sourced programs such as risk manageen-US -en-US ment and workers compensation were en-US brought in-house.en-US He addressed the change last year to the en-US citys stormwater funding program, which en-US was plagued by collection problems en-US with millions of dollars outstanding. en-US Now its on the tax bill and we have 100 en-US percent collection, he said.en-US A sign of the stormwater programs sucen-US-en-US cess, Mr. Lynk said, is that Garvey Road en-US north of Jupiter Boulevard will open soon. en-US The city will then move on to the en-US much-needed stormwater system repairs en-US on Nevada Drive in northeast Palm Bay. en-US The city has earmarked $55 million to en-US expand water and sewer services in the en-US city to accommodate new development.en-US Mr. Lynk breezed through a list of en-US planned developments in all quadrants of en-US the city including a 340-unit apartment en-US complex on RJ Conlan Boulevard, as well en-US as a residential and commercial developen-US-en-US ment near the recently opened St. Johns en-US Heritage Parkway in northwest Palm Bay.en-US We want people to live, work and play en-US in Palm Bay, Mr. Lynk said.en-US To speed up the permitting process for en-US developers, the city is investing in e-peren-US -en-US mitting, which is expected to bring quicken-US-en-US er approval and would allow developers to en-US schedule inspections through a simple en-US text message.en-US Developers pay an impact fee to the city en-US because of the impact their developments en-US have on roads, infrastructure and parks, en-US and Mr. Lynk said the impact fees alone en-US for a project in southeast Palm Bay called en-US Emerald Lakes are expected to be $82 en-US million.en-US Thats how a city gets healthy, he said. en-US8 p.m.en-US Thursdays:en-US Co-ed Community en-US Volleyball (ages 16 years and older) from en-US 6 to 8:30 p.m. $1.en-US Fridays:en-US Late Night Basketball (ages 8 en-US -17 years) from 8 to 11 p.m. $1.en-US All events take place in the Joseph N. en-US Davis Community Center. 2547 Grant St., en-US Melbourne.en-US For more information, call (321) 608-en-US 7460.en-USTUESDAY, APRIL 24en-USKaraoke night: en-US Elks Lodge No. 1744 en-US welcomes Elks and guests to their lodge, en-US 211 S.

In en-US the film, the world has been overrun by en-US creatures which are hypersensitive to en-US sounds, viciously attacking anything that en-US makes noise.en-US At the first instance of meeting the en-US Abbot family (who are never explicitly en-US named within the film), Earth has already en-US been overcome by the creatures. The creaen-US -en-US tures are not well-defined for the audien-US -en-US ence, and director/lead actor John Kraen-US -en-US sinski rather refreshingly lets the audience en-US make their own interpretations as to the en-US situation at hand as the film progresses.en-US The Abbot family consists of parents en-US Evelyn and Lee, Reagan, their deaf daughen-US-en-US ter, Marcus, and Beau, their youngest son.en-US The family seeks to survive in the en-US near-silent world through their ingenuity. en-US Communicating almost exclusively in en-US American Sign Language (ASL), the en-US Abbot family is shown in the film as deepen-US -en-US ly caring, integrated in unity.en-US One of the most interesting decisions en-US by Mr. Krasinski was to hire deaf actress en-US Millicent Simmonds as Regan Abbott, en-US which led to a real feeling of not only fluen-US -en-US ency in ASL in the characters, but also en-US how ASL was portrayed. For example, as en-US the teenage Regan signs to her father, en-US stop, the heel of her hand strikes her en-US other palm with a force that is as emoen-US -en-US tionally believable as it is physically.en-US Visually speaking, "A Quiet Place" finds en-US both a balance in maturity and entertainen-US -en-US ment. There are scenes where lesser direcen-US-en-US tors might have allowed for a "jump-en-US scare," which is only too tempting in a en-US modern horror film with so many silent en-US scenes.en-US Instead, "A Quiet Place" acknowledges en-US this temptation with minor changes in the en-US score, and often makes the more prudent en-US decision to let the scene develop naturally.en-USHoroscopes FRIDAY, APRIL 20, 2018 en-USMELBOURNEen-US WWW.HOMETOWNNEWSBREVARD.COM PAGE 11en-US'A Quiet Place' is horror with feelingen-USDining en-US &en-US Entertainmenten-USARIES March 21/April 20en-USAries, soon you will be able to clarify your en-US thinking and articulate your needs to others. en-US Until then, you need to wait for an opportunity en-US to share your point of view.en-USTAURUS April 21/May 21en-USTaurus, if you have been struggling with a chalen-US-en-US lenging situation, youll get some much-needen-US-en-US ed support this week.

This en-US piece is based on a 13th century poem.en-US Both Romeo and Juliet and Scheheen-US -en-US razade are guaranteed to capture the en-US imagination of anyone who hears them, en-US Mr. Collins said. Marshalls work is much en-US more reflective and not so literal.en-US Dr. Araya has previously performed en-US with the SCSO as a section player on mulen-US-en-US tiple occasions.

The Abbot family are struggling en-US to survive but have few plans for either en-US improving their situation or even fighting en-US back, remaining almost entirely in a en-US defensive position during the film. It is en-US only at the climax and conclusions of "A en-US Quiet Place" that the audience can see a en-US real development in the plot, at which en-US point the film abruptly ends. I should very en-US much like to see an extended edition of en-US the film that picks up where the last scene en-US ends.en-US Overall, "A Quiet Place" is an excellent en-US film, and one that would be just as well en-US experienced at home on the couch as it en-US would in the theater.en-GBQuieten-USFrom page 11 en-USSCORPIO Oct. 24/Nov. 22en-USHealth, wisdom and wealth could be in your en-US sights, Scorpio.

First, the en-US company calculated two different cost of en-US living numbers for a household with one en-US adult and no dependents. One reflected en-US the baseline cost of living in each area and en-US the other was based on expenditures typien-US -en-US cal to someone making that countys en-US median income.en-US Next, the company combined the two en-US cost of living numbers using a weighted en-US average based on how close each countys en-US median income was to the minimal liven-US-en-US able income in that area. SmartAsset then en-US subtracted income taxes paid in that area.en-US Finally, the company calculated puren-US -en-US chasing power by determining the weighten-US -en-US ed cost of living as a percentage of median en-US income.en-US Williamson County, Tenn., has the en-US most purchasing power in the U.S., with a en-US median income of $100,140 and a cost of en-US living of $47,227, according to SmartAsen-US -en-US set.en-US By Michael en-USlongest-running artist and the No. 6 album en-US artist in the history of Billboard's pop album charts, performs at 8 p.m. Saturday, April 28, en-USat the Maxwell C.
