They use an average en-US of 35 percent less energy than typical en-US buildings and are responsible for 35 peren-US -en-US cent fewer greenhouse gas emissions.en-US The schools earned the Energy Star ceren-US -en-US tification by not only adhering to the en-US EPAs strict policy guidelines on energy en-US efficiency, but also by devising new ways en-US to save net energy losses.en-US For instance, in some schools the chiller en-US systems used to regulate inside temperaen-US-en-US tures are being re-engineered for more en-US energy-efficient practices.en-US The Association of Energy Engineers en-US (AEE) and American Society of Heating, en-US Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engien-US-en-US neers (ASHRAE) conducted a tour of en-US some of the schools that earned the Eneren-US -en-US gy Star certification.en-US (The AEE and ASHRAE visited) new en-US chillers and the central energy plant en-US designed for Southwest Middle and Turnen-US -en-US er Elementary schools, BPS officials staten-US -en-US ed. The district was able to save time and en-US money by combining the schools chillers, en-US installing plastic pipe for the chilled water en-US loop and using directional digging to en-US avoid trenching. en-US The groups also visited Bayside High en-US where they learned about the schools new en-US chillers, measures to reduce outside air, en-US refurbished ice storage and building-enen-US -en-US velope improvements, officials added.en-US Brevard Public Schools aims to achieve en-US even greater energy efficiency in the comen-US-en-US ing years by working to replace the curen-US -en-US rent T8 florescent lighting with more en-US modern and efficient LED lighting.en-US The effort, which began in March, will en-US be in two phases and will take about five en-US years to finish, officials stated. The first en-US phase will replace more than 250,000 en-US 4-foot T8 florescent lamps, officials staten-US-en-US ed. Phase 2 will focus on high bay fixen-US -en-US tures in gyms and cafeterias, and outside en-US lighting, and should start this summer.en-US This lighting overhaul also will save en-US BPS around $500,000 a year.en-US The T8 lamps will not end up in the en-US landfill, however. They will be offered for en-US free to schools that have not yet been en-US scheduled for LED replacements, and the en-US remaining lamps will be auctioned off.en-US For more information, visit en-US www.edline.en-US net/pages/Brevard_County_Schools/en-US Departments/Departments__A-J/Energy_en-US Resource_Conservationen-US.en-US By Austin en-USFor more information, call Mareitta en-US Janutolo at (321) 727-2383, or Nora Stoip en-US (321) 704-7474 or Lorraine Calagy at en-US (321) 725-3459.en-US Rock the Porch:en-US Rock the Porch Jam is en-US from 1 to 2:50 p.m. the second (May 12)en-US and fourth (April 28) Saturdays at en-US Melbourne Beach Old Town Hall History en-US Center, 2373 Oak St., Melbourne Beach. en-US The free, inclusive event features blues, en-US rock, folk, and country jam for spectators en-US and musicians. en-US For more information, call (321) 427-en-US 4624, email en-USinfo@beeandthehive.comen-US or en-US visiten-US en-US www.beeandthehive.comen-US .en-US Communicate with confidence:en-US The en-US Peace Talkers Toastmasters Club meets en-US from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Saturdays at Wat en-US Punyawanaram Buddhist Temple, 4490 en-US Aurora Road, Melbourne.en-US The group can help you improve your en-US communication and leadership skills at a en-US peaceful setting.en-US For more information, email Pim Paren-US -en-US part at en-US piml@juno.comen-US.en-US SUNDAY, APRIL 29 en-USLearn to paint pastels:en-US Learn how to en-US draw and paint wildlife, animals and pets, en-US naturescapes, still life and portraits, and en-US abstracts from 10 a.m. to noon Sundays en-US and from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays at Art en-US Gallery of Viera, 2201 Town Center Drive, en-US Suite 111, Viera.en-US The fee is $25 per class or $85 for four en-US classes and you can join anytime.en-US Contact Debi Pettigrew to register: en-US (321) 749-1153 or en-US dpettigrew@cfl.rr.comen-US en-US View Debis work at en-USwww.pastelsbydeb.en-US comen-US .en-US en-USBeginning Hebrew class:en-US Learn to speak en-US Hebrew at 12:15 p.m. Sundays at Temple en-US Israel, 7350 Lake Andrew Drive, Viera.en-US The class is taught by Peter Czutrin, en-US from Israel.en-US You do not need to be Jewish to learn en-US Hebrew and can begin the course anytime.en-US It is open to all teens and older and the en-US fee is $144 for members, $160 for non-en-US members.en-US For more information or to register, call en-US (321) 631-9494 or email en-US tioffice@en-US tiofbrevard.comen-US.en-USMONDAY, APRIL 30en-GBCalendaren-USFrom page 2en-GB Seeen-GB en-GB CALENDARen-GB, page 4

But it is because forward en-US thinking management like the leadership en-US of en-US Hometown Newsen-US is willing to publish en-US these articles that we have the opportunity en-US to change the mindset of philanthropic en-US givers. en-US Most people believe private foundations en-US provide the majority of funding for charien-US -en-US table causes, but that is far from the truth. en-US Only 7 percent of financial aid is derived en-US from foundation support. Most funding en-US comes from local businesses, individuals, en-US or innovative fund raising activities. en-US Having a cause understood by all, such en-US as Alzheimers, cancer, diabetes, or heart en-US research, makes fundraising a lot easier. en-US Having a cause not so well known or one en-US that people want to ignore, like aging, en-US makes it more difficult.en-US In this short article it is my privilege to en-US talk about a car dealer who does his best en-US to promote charitable giving in Brevard. I en-US know firsthand what he has done for the en-US community ever since that day 25 years en-US ago when I walked into the Boniface Heirs en-US office and asked A.J. Hiers if he would en-US donate a car to the Alzheimers Associaen-US -en-US tion for us to raffle. He must have thought en-US I was some kind of a nut, but he did furen-US -en-US nish a car, transport it to events at his cost, en-US and advertise in a local daily newspaper en-US for us. He also provided three Dodge vans en-US for us to take clients to and from our adult en-US day cares, covering repairs and insurance. en-US All we did was put in the gas.en-US Over the years we have softened him up en-US a bit to where he has and continues to help en-US a number of charities, the ones I know en-US about being St. Jude, the Brevard County en-US Sheriffs Office Charity, the Brevard Alzen-US-en-US heimers Foundation, and now Helping en-US Seniors. This past year A.J. gave us a 1951 en-US Ford Victoria hot rod to raffle, and we en-US raised more than $56,000, which will help en-US us provide a lifeline to many seniors.en-GBSeeen-GB en-GB SENIORSen-GB page 7en-USHELPING SENIORS en-US OF BREVARDen-GBJOE STECKLER Alex Schierholtz/Staff photographer en-USHundreds of people gather at Playalinda Beach to watch the launch of en-US a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket on April 18.

Howeven-US -en-US er, my electric bill was atrocious. en-US Suddenly it occurred to me to get solar en-US panels to circumvent the high cost of elecen-US-en-US tricity. en-US I contacted a solar company and I was en-US amazed to find out that Florida is not given-US-en-US ing any kind of rebates to homeowners to en-US install solar energy panels.en-US The Internal Revenue Service gives 30 percent rebates, however, the state of en-USFlorida does not.en-US I wrote to Gov. Rick Scott with no en-US response. en-US I found out many other states offer en-US incentives for homeowners to install solar en-US panels. en-US I wonder why the Sunshine State is not en-US offering good incentives for homeowners. en-US Energy is a precious commodity and if en-US our state would offer incentives, then we'd en-US have surplus energy that could easily be en-US sold to other states. en-US I cannot comprehend why Florida is en-US not doing anything to use nature for our en-US pleasure and pocketbook.en-USSign charter correction petitionen-US if you distrust City Council en-USA number of concerned Palm Bay voten-US -en-US ers have banded together and started a en-US petition to correct a serious flaw in the en-US recently changed city charter, dealing en-US with the council's ability (by a simple en-US majority) to levy long term special assessen-US -en-US ments on property owners.en-US If you don't trust the current Palm Bay en-US City Council members then I suggest you en-US make an attempt to sign the petition and en-US get the Charter correction on the upcomen-US -en-US ing November 2018 ballot.en-USGood contractors exist en-US en-US in Brevard Countyen-USFinding an excellent contractor in Breen-US-en-US vard was difficult, but due to word of en-US mouth by a friend, my wife and I contacten-US -en-US ed an outstanding contractor to repaint en-US our kitchen cabinets doors, frame, side en-US panels, kick plates and replace drawers en-US with four pullouts for pots and pans.en-US Lee Brown is the sales representative en-US from N-Hance Brevard in Melbourne. en-US He came to our house, reviewed our en-US needs and we signed a contract.en-US The work was completed ahead of en-US schedule, the workers were very clean and en-US always on time.en-US It is good to know we have some great en-US contractors in our area. en-US I highly recommend N-Hance Brevard.en-US'Coexist' author should get prize en-US en-US for most-embarrassing ranten-USYou win a prize!en-US I am writing this in response to the peren-US -en-US son who wrote in about the concept of en-US coexisting last week. en-US I usually read en-US Hometown News' en-US Rants &en-US en-US Raves for a chuckle but I realized last en-US week that this person deserves a prize. en-GBSeeen-GB en-GB SENIORSen-GB page 7

I blacked out and en-US the next thing I knew there were EMT's en-US and first responders around my vehicle en-US trying to "wake me up."en-US I must have missed a few changes in en-US the lights turning green and my "guarden-US -en-US ian angel" in a truck called 911.en-US He then pulled in front of me, so if my en-US foot slipped off the brake I would not go en-US into the intersection and possibly get hit en-US by numerous vehicles, I would hit his en-US truck and stop. en-US Once the police redirected the backed-en-US up traffic around the emergency vehicles en-US and through the Babcock and 192 interen-US -en-US section, they told him he could go. en-US Unfortunately no one got the name of en-US this very caring person. I want all of you en-US who came to my aid that day to know I en-US am going through testing to find out en-US what caused this, and I am not driving en-US until I do. en-US To my "guardian angel" who called 911 en-US and stayed with me until help arrived en-US and all the caring first responders who en-US came to help me, "THANK YOU" from en-US the bottom of my heart and God bless all en-US of you. en-US Thanks to en-US Hometown News en-USfor giving en-US me a place to let these special people en-US know they are appreciated.en-USFriendly reminder: Slower en-US en-US traffic please move righten-USPlease drivers . slower traffic move to en-US the right.en-US Despite the speed limit, if you have en-US someone on your tail in the left lane, en-US move to the right lane.

DINING & ENTERTAINMENT en-USBREVARD COUNTY If you haven-US -en-US ent tried Vieras latest Mexican/Cuban en-US restaurant, youre missing out on some en-US of the best flavors in town.en-US From its unique dcor to its bold and en-US delicious dishes, El Leoncito, 5360 Staen-US-en-US dium Parkway, is the third restaurant en-US of its kind to pop up in Brevard, and its en-US all run as a family business.en-US Its the first restaurant we ever had en-US where we built it the way we wanted en-US to, said Michael Sanchez, owner of the en-US Viera restaurant. Every other restauen-US -en-US rant weve had, weve made the best of en-US what it was before.en-US El Leoncito first opened as a Mexien-US -en-US can restaurant in California in 1977. en-US The Sanchez family moved to Brevard en-US and opened its first restaurant in Titusen-US -en-US ville in 1995, adding Cuban dishes to en-US the menu. A second Brevard location en-US was added in Cocoa.en-US Mr. Sanchez said since the new en-US restaurant opened in Viera on Valenen-US -en-US tines Day this year, patrons have conen-US-en-US tinued to fill the place every weekend. en-US The average wait time is usually 20 to en-US 30 minutes but at peak time, can range en-US from 35 to 40 minutes on weekends.en-US From busboy to restaurant owner, en-US Mr. Sanchez has filled many roles since en-US working at El Leoncito when he was 12 en-US years old.en-US Ive been in every position known en-US to man, Mr. Sanchez said. I like the en-US challenge [of being owner]; a lot goes en-US into a restaurant that people dont en-US understand.en-US From El Leoncitos vibrant walls to en-US its beautiful decorations, Mr. Sanchez en-US searched through many antique stores en-US to find pieces that would make his en-US restaurant stand out. He even went to en-US Cuba to pick out the paintings that en-US now fill the walls.en-US There are two noticeable pieces of en-US decorations inside the restaurant. en-US When you first walk inside, a large en-US church door fills the back wall on your en-US right, and if you walk to the back by en-US the outdoor seating area, a church winen-US-en-US dow is displayed on the wall. These two en-US pieces came from a 200-year-old en-US church in India, Mr. Sanchez explained.en-US The tables are intricately carved and en-US there are plenty of colorful artifacts en-US hanging from the ceiling and walls to en-US catch your attention.en-US As with any new business opening up en-US to the public, Mr. Sanchez said he ran en-US across a few challenges. Since then, El en-US Leoncito has been constantly improven-US -en-US ing and taking its challenges head-on.en-US Now you know who the strong peoen-US-en-US ple are, Mr. Sanchez said. If you can en-US survive those first four weeks, you can en-US survive anything. Youre only left with en-US the strong. Were constantly improven-US-en-US ing... weve even improved the chile en-US rellenos this week, the tamales and a en-US few other items.en-US I had the opportunity to bring a en-US guest to try a few dishes from El Leonen-US -en-US cito. We were seated at a cozy booth en-US along the main dining room wall, en-US which was enclosed by a wooden barrien-US -en-US er between booths. It gave my guest en-US and I the opportunity to talk without en-USMexican-Cuban restaurant expands to Viera en-USStaff photo by Brittany Mulliganen-USEl Leoncito is Vieras newest Mexican/Cuban restaurant.
