Local resident blessed by a good deed


BY ROBIN RINKE
Staff writer


Vero Beach Erika Babcock,
a Vero Beach resident, could
have been stripped clean of
cash and identity the day she
lost her pocketbook Christmas
day. But a different ending
came to her story.
I was having an "enjoyable
Christmas dinner with family
at Waldo's restaurant in Vero
Beach," Mrs. Babcock said.
"We ate, exchanged gifts took
pictures and basked in the nice
holiday weather at the outdoor
restaurant," she added.
The four then left the restau-
rant and went to their cars.


"Saying good-bye in the
parking lot and giving Christ-
mas wishes, while holding
cameras, bags and flowers all
took my attention," she said.
The 89 year-old Mrs. Bab-
cock did not notice that her
pocketbook had slipped from
her arm while she was in the
parking lot.
Only until she was in the car
and on her way home did she
notice that her pocketbook was
missing.
"I felt like fainting. All of my
cash and every stitch of identi-
ty was in that pocketbook, "
Mrs. Babcock said.
They immediately returned


to Waldo's.
As they approached the back
entrance, a woman was
standing outside waxing some-
thing in the air.
"She asked me if I came back
for my bag. She then called me
by pame and toldme she.found
it in the parking lot," Mrs; Bab-
cock said, and then added "I
screamed 'Oh God!, Oh God!
My pocketbook!'"
The stranger never gave Mrs.
Babcock her name and told her
she was from Kansas.
"I wanted to giVe her moriey,
but she would not take it and
told me 'to give it to someone
needy,"' she said.


Turtles

VERO BEACH For its
second incarnation.
TurtleTrax, the wildly pop-
ular public art project,
dabbled in evolution.
Fresh designs have been
painted on 15 new fiber-
glass sea turtles, the Cul-
tural Council of Indian
River County is drawing
up a list of potential loca-
tions for the sculptures
and, instead of auctioning
the turtles to the highest
bidder, groups are working
to raise at least $10,000
apiece to buy them.
It's part of an effort to
keep the folksy art on pub-
lic display after TurtleTrax
concludes this spring.
On Jan. 5, the new tur-
tles will be unveiled at the
Indian River Mall.

round of the popular public art project, holds court outside the Indian

Hospital's CT

scans offer


glimpse of

medicine's

future
BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter


VERO BEACH Without using
scalpels without even getting out of
their chairs technicians at Indian River
Medical Center can look deep inside the
brain of the elderly woman in front of
them.
The patient was wheeled in on a gur-
ney just seconds before, her eyes closed
and her frail body motionless. Her symp-
toms indicated she was in the middle of
a stroke..
Technicians gingerly placed her on a
CT scanner, where a device that resem-
bled a spinning silver doughnut scanned
her brain and instantaneously beamed
images of it to technicians in the next
room.
Robert Pflug, the hospital's CT scan
supervisor, offered an explanation: "As
technology evolves, everything gets bet-
ter and faster."
That's an understatement.
The sophisticated equipment and
the lightning-fast diagnoses it can deliv-
er are part of the hospital's push to
acquire advanced technology and par-
ticipate in innovative programs.
The machine a whirring Siemens
Somatom Sensation 64 scanner cap-
tured dozens of images of the patient's
brain and, within seconds, created a
three-dimensional, living-color render-
ing of the intricate network of blood ves-
sels inside her skull.
The hospital has two of the Siemens
CT scanners; each one costs between
$1.5 million and $2 million.
Back in the CT suite, a new patient is
wheeled in every 15 minutes or so. Mr.
Pflug said that by day's end, he and his
staff will have tended to about 90
patients.
Compared to old-fashioned X-rays or
previous generations of CAT scans, the
new imagery provides renderings of
blood vessels, bones and organs in sharp
detail and three dimensions.
At one of the computers that line the
CT suite, Mr. Pflug pulls up a three-
dimensional image of a face, with the
sinuses visible inside.
With a few clicks of a mouse, Mr. Pflug
can adjust the contrast and peer inside
blood vessels to look for blockages and
buildup.
"Basically, there is nothing we cannot
do with the scanner," he said.
CT, the abbreviated form of computed
tomography, was developed in England
in the late 1960s. Within 20 years, it was

The Right Care Right Here


Turtle
From page Al
"All of them are gor-
geous in their own right,"
said Barbara Hammond,
TurtleTrax chairwoman.
Ms. Hammond is also
chairwoman of the Men-
tal Health Association's
board of directors. The
association will receive
the proceeds the turtles
will attract.
The Mental Health
Association is the coun-
ty's only nonprofit
resource for immediate
access to crisis counsel-
ing and mental health
care.
The goal of TurtleTrax,
Ms. Hammond said, is to
"break the stigma of men-
tal health."
Last year, the Mental
Health Association used
52 eye-popping turtle
sculptures to raise aware-
ness and money for men-
tal health services.
But, following the auc-
tion that capped Turtle-
Trax, "90 percent of the
turtles went to people's
backyards," Ms. Ham-
mond said.
This time, organizers
said the sculptures will
remain on public display
indefinitely.
Following Friday's
debut, the turtles will
remain at the mall
throughout the weekend
before being hauled to
their display locations.
Kathleen Kowanic,
office and development
coordinator at the Mental
Health Association, said
sponsors picked the tem-
porary sites where the
sculptures will sit.
At the mall this week-
end, visitors will be able


to sign up for Turtle Trek,
a 10-mile walk scheduled
for Feb. 24.
"We'll have people from
,6 to 80 out there walking,"
Ms. Hammond said.
The turtles, awaiting
opening night iina Mental
Health Association stor-
age unit, were designed
and painted by local
artists.
"The artistic commu-
nity loves to do these tur-
tles," Ms. Hammond
said.
Each sculpture depicts
a sea turtle with its fins
outstretched, as if it were
gliding through the sea.
Patrick Keough, owner
America's Fiberglass Ani-
mals in Shelton, Neb.,
which cast the turtles,
said the pose was chosen
for its dramatic effect.
When an artist receives
his or her sculpture, he
or she treats the stark
white fiberglass as a can-
vas.
One soon-to-be-
unveiled turtle, spon-
sored by Vero Beach's
Cox-Gifford-Seawinds
Funeral Home, adopts a
patriotic theme, com-
plete with depictions of
the Statue of Liberty,
Mount Rushmore and
the World War II flag rais-
ing at Iwo Jima.
"The artists do the real
work," Mr. Keough said
in an interview from his
studio on Dec. 29. "I just
do the easy part."
As he spoke, Mr.
Keough's small firm was
finishing up more than
100 six-foot-tall cowboy
boots that will be painted
and then placed around
Houston.
Before he created the
first TurtleTrax sculp-
tures in late 2004, Mr.


Keough fashioned fiber-
glass buffalo for Buffalo,
N.Y. and horse sculptures
for Louisville, Ky. home
of the Kentucky Derby.
"One thing I love about
this is what it does for
the community," Mr.
Keough said.
With a second season
of TurtleTrax, Vero Beach
continues a public art
trend that began seven
years ago when Chicago
decorated its sidewalks
with whimsical fiberglass
cows.
Cows on Parade, as the
citywide display was
known, became a hit
with tourists who adapt-
ed the project for their
hometowns.
Local fauna inspired
similar sculptures across
the Sunshine State: Man-
atees in Jacksonville, pel-
icans in Pensacola and,
naturally, gators in
Gainesville.
Sea turtles, however,
aren't limited to Vero
Beach. This spring,
dozens of sculptures
depicting the marine
reptiles will line the side-
walks of Charleston, S.C.
Mr. Keough, whose
friends told him four
years ago that the trend
would soon peak and
fade, said there are
dozens of public art
ideas in cities across the
country that have yet to
be tapped.
"I don't really see it
ending for a long, long
time," he said.

The TurtleTrax Com-
munity Preview will take
place at 4 p.m. on Jan. 5
near Sears at the Indian
River Mall. For more

Planning makes difference in


paying for college


With planning and cre-
ativity you can afford a
college education for
yourself, or a child.
All financial aid falls
into two categories. Need-
based aid is for students
who cannot afford to pay
for education. Non-need-
based is awarded even to
those who can afford edu-
cation.
Complete The Free
Application For Federal
Student Aid (FAFSA).
Most schools use the
FAFSA to determine how
much a student can pay
for education. This is
called the Estimated Fam-
ily Contribution (EFC).
Financial aid 'is based
on the difference between
the EFC and the cost of
attendance. Some schools
use other forms, however
the FAFSA is required for
government programs,
including Pell Grants and
Stafford Loans. Since the
FAFSA is standardized, it
does not consider special
situations.
If circumstances limit
your ability to pay for col-
lege, contact your school's
financial aid office direct-
ly.
Don't wait until a col-
lege accepts you to apply
for aid. Schools distribute
resources on a first-come-
first-serve basis, and may
run out of funds.
Complete the FAFSA
any time after Jan. 1, you
can use estimated num-
bers if you haven't com-
pleted your tax return.
Completing the FAFSA
online (www.fafsa.ed.gov)
will get your results about
two weeks faster.
Be Creative. Many stu-
dents think if they don't
have exceptional academ-
ic or athletic talent they
can't qualify for a scholar-
ship.


ALAN POLACKWICH
Riverside Nationa Bank
Scholarships are award-
ed for nationality, area of
study, membership in
professional or communi-
ty organizations, place of
employment, and more,
you just have to look for
them. Beware of paid
scholarship searches.
You'll do just as well talk-
ing to family members
and your counselor, and
checking free scholarship
searches on the Internet.
Don't overlook the bank,
ask your banker for infor-
mation.
A person may want to
consider a loan. Since
loans can be either need-
or non-need-based, terms
vary. Government subsi-
dized loans, such as
Perkins loans, offer lower
interest rates and deferred
payments until after grad-
uation.
Unsubsidized loans,
such as PLUS loans, can
be a good alternative to
cashing in investments,
using 401k funds, or tak-
ing out a home equity
loan. Talk to a financial
advisor about your
options.
Compare Award Pack-
ages. Since the EFC is the
same for each college, a
person needs to look at
the amount and type of
financial aid each school


offers.
You want more grants
and scholarships than
work-study or loans. If you
have outside scholarships,
find out how your school
applies them to your
financial-aid package.
Some schools use scholar-
ships for your EFC, but
others decrease work-
study or loan amounts. A
few even reduce grant
money with scholarships.
Get A Job. The federal
work-study program lets
students earn money on
campus working limited
hours that don't interfere
with studying.
Cooperative education
programs let students
earn, and gain profession-
al experience by alterat-
ing semesters of study
with fulltime work. Resi-
dent and teaching assist-
antships provide a small
salary and reduced
tuition, fees or housing
costs.
To make the most of
college savings, look into
state sponsored, profes-
sionally managed 529
Plans. Parents, grandpar-
ents, and students can
contribute, and with-
drawals are exempt from
federal and some state
taxes as long as you use
the money for a qualified
educational expense. 529
Plans include Prepaid Col-
lege Plans which require
the student to attend a
state school, and College
Savings Plans which are
more flexible. 529 Plans
also allow much higher
contributions than plans
like Coverdell Educational
Savings Accounts and
Educational IRA
Accounts.

ted by Alan Polackwich,
Riverside Bank President
in Indian River County.


Candidates ready to replace
McCollum in county
emergency post

Six men are vying replace Nate McCollum,
Indian River County's former emergency
management coordinator, who stepped
down in August to fill the same role in
Flagler County.
The six candidates, most of whom have
emergency management or law enforce-
ment backgrounds, will work for the
county's Emergency Services director to
develop countywide disaster plans.
Orchid Police Chief Phil Redstone; Paul
Graves, an officer on the Sebastian Police
Department; Robert Schmidt, the former
Linden, N.J., emergency management
director; Tony Carper, Broward County's
emergency management director since
1997; and David Sandau, an emergency
management coordinator for the Broward
Emergency Management Agency, hope to
fill Mr. McCollum's old role.
Mr. McCollum, who also resigned his post
as a Sebastian city council member on Dec.
31, was well-known for addressing county
residents on local radio and television
when hurricanes were en route to the
Treasure Coast.
County Emergency Services Director John
King will conduct interviews later this
month.

Gunmen rob truck stop in
Christmas Day holdup

VERO BEACH -Early Christmas morn-
ing, two men wielding handguns marched
into the TA Truck Stop at 8909 20th St. and
stole an undisclosed amount of cash.
Around 5:30 a.m., the men pointed a gun
at the cashier and demanded money. The
men, one of whom was wearing a mask,
then fled.
No shots were fired and no injuries were
reported to the Indian River County Sher-
iff's Office.
Deputies are encouraging anyone with
information about the robbery to call the
sheriff's office at (772) 569-6700.

Grand Harbor plans to add
hundreds of homes

WINTER BEACH Hundreds of new
homes could be added to Grand Harbor,
the county's largest housing development,


on a 400-acre site.
The proposed development, called Isles
of Grand Harbor, would feature 184 town-
houses and 612 single-family homes.
The site had previously been considered
for a nine-hole golf course and, in 2000, 650
homes, thousands of square feet of com-
mercial space and an 18-hole golf course.

Sheriffs drug unit nabs nine
people on drug charge

cocaine, one-fourth of a pound of marijua-
na, methadone and oxycodone, according

Little moments

FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

"Tommy" was in seventh grade before
he ever went trick-or-treating.
One of several children in a family with
only one parent, his mother worked a lot
of hours to keep a roof over their heads
and food on the table. So things like trick-
or-treating fell between the cracks.
It was a similar story for "Jasmine," who
had lived all eight of her years in Fort
Pierce, without ever seeing the ocean or
going on a picnic.
Fortunately, Tommy and Jasmine have
both experienced a multitude of firsts
since becoming littlee" with the Big
Brothers Big Sisters program.
For more than 100 years, Big Brothers
Big Sisters has been matching adult
Members of the community, known as
"bigs," with children who are struggling,
come from single-parent homes, and just
need a role model and mentoring.


mean bigmagic

These littlee" are matched with the
"bigs" and the result is...well, magic!
The magic may take the form of a first-
experience, like Tommy and his first-
trick-or-treating excursion; a trip to the
bowling alley; a picnic on the beach; or a
chance to bake cookies from scratch.
Even if it's just a visit to the local library
or .a chance to sit together and color or
blow bubbles, the little moments "bigs"
and littlee" spend together build self-
esteem, a positive attitude, and a desire
to succeed, Which they carry into the
future.
"What's surprising about being a 'big,'
is that I get more out of the relationship
than my 'little' does," said Fort Pierce res-
ident Rachel Heddings. "We've become
friends. I'm not sure what I was thinking
when I started mentoring, but I didn't
expected she would become so impor-

In a quagmire, with no easy solution

This is in response to the rant, "Bad media about the
war."
I find the article to be interesting. The person who
wrote it seems to think that no one in this nation is
sacrificing. But because we chose this wrong war, at the
wrong time, for the wrong reasons, everyone is sacrific-
ing.
Indeed, everyone is sacrificing. We, as taxpayers, are
spending billions upon billions of dollars going over
there to fight a war, in a sovereign country that didn't
invite us, and obviously does not want us to be there,
but that we invaded. And now, we are in a quagmire
where there is no easy solution. We can't leave, and
indeed we can't stay.
Additionally, I consider the almost 3,000 troops' lives
lost, although they were not related to me, a tragedy.
It's also a travesty that tens of thousands of Iraqis have
lost their lives because we chose to invade their country
and wage war on them. *
The writer also said something regarding a "reality
check." They must be out there in la-la land with the
president and the current administration because this
war is a mess.
I don't think the media is painting a false picture of
what a mess it is. I have traveled all over the world and
learned that people are the same wherever you go. I
have been opposed to this war before we invaded and I
continue to be opposed. We have created a mess and we
have created ill will with all of our friends around the
world. Everywhere I go, the people I meet find our
president a joke, and sadly, I do, too.

Where is the holiday spirit?

Where is the holiday spirit?.I don't see it in the busi-
ness windows. A local.car virash looks absolutely fabu-
lous, as it does everyyear. But, every store should put a
candle in the window. Can'you imagine how that would
look? If you can't afford it, hit the dollar store.

Do your time and pray that the families will
forgive you

There was a story in the news about Stephen Brom-
strup not getting a clemency hearing so he could get out
of prison to be with his family on Christmas this year. It
made him sound like a victim instead ofa criminal.
Two young teenage girls are dead and a third survived,
but was seriously injured. Mr. Bromstrup was drinking,
smoking marijuana and speeding to almost 90 mph on
a two-lane road when he killed them, and he has
already had several years of his sentence reduced due to
clemency. Now, he and his family want him out for
Christmas. The families of the victims will never have
their daughters back for Christmas, ever. Do your time
Stephen, and pray that God and the families will forgive
you when you get out.

Children behaving badly in public places

This is in response to the complaint about the big
green kitty carts in grocery stores.
I have one child and I am not 100 years old. I was
raised to respect elders in a traditional Southern fashion
and my mother would never put up with bad behavior
from children in grocery stores or any other store, as
they do today.
First of all, the grocery store is not a playground.
Second, there are elderly and sickly people trying to get
their errands done at the same time as the person who
wrote the complaint.
I don't have enough funds for a nanny either, but I
believe in quality over quantity.


&j6Qawe


I also believe that the children of today are not behar-
ing properly in public places, wanting candy and crying
when they don't get what they want. I don't know where
they're from, but it's not proper etiquette or behavior.
Children should respect other people. If money is an
issue for get ting a nanny, maybe someone shouldn't
have had so many children.

Keeping children safe

I enjoy reading the Rants'& Raves in the paper. Some-
times the authors have thought-provoking insights, and
sometimes it's just illiterate drivel, but it is always
entertaining.
So I thought this might be a good place to get the word
out about child restraint safety, especially since the
holiday travel season is active.
I have been a nurse for 30 years practicing in adult and
pediatric emergency departments and intensive care
units across the South.
For the past 17 years, I have worked in EMS. The most
wasteful and infuriating injuries I have to deal with
involve children who are either improperly restrained or
not restrained at all. Those precious children come
flying out of the vehicle headfirst and sustain devastat-
ing head injuries or death.
It is my job to scoop them up, attempt to save their
(lives) and deal with the aftermath of failed attempts
because the injuries were not survivable.
Please restrain your child in an age-and size-appropri-
ate restraint. That device must be properly secure to
the body of the vehicle.
It does no good to put them in a car seat that is not
secured to the car. The whole thing goes flying.
Please make sure the Department of Transportation-
approved child seat is appropriate for the size of the
child. Children 40 to-80 pounds have to be in a DOT-
approved booster seat.
No child under 100 pounds or 12 years of age is to be in
the front seat, as the airbags can cause serious injury or
death to that child.
While I'm on the subject, a child learns what he/she
sees. Make sure you have your three-point restraint on
properly. This creates a lifesaving habit for you and for
your children.
Observe the traffic laws, and be patient. Taking unnec-
essary risks because you are "in a hurry" will only get
you to the hospital quicker.
So what if you are a couple of minutes late? Isn't that
better than not getting there at all?

Quit complaining about the weather

To all the Northerners, visitors, Yankees, etc, complain-
ing about the fact it's warm, hello, get a clue, this is
Florida. This is supposed to be a tropical climate year-
round.
If you want clouds, gloomy weather, and snow, take
Interstate 95 or 75 and don't stop until you're home.
Do us a favor and stay at home. Maybe our roads and
malls won't be so crowded and make it easier on us
permanent residents.


Tip appropriately when service is good


It's sad that one would need to be reminded about this,
particularly during the holiday season, but apparently
there are some people who are still not aware that the
appropriate tip for excellent service is 18 to 20 percent of
the bill.
My daughter works (emphasize "works") at a popular
local upscale restaurant where recently a number of
patrons have seen fit to leave tips of 5 to 10 percent. The
level of service at this restaurant is always excellent.
Words of praise are appreciated but are not the same as
an appropriate tip for great service.
These servers are dedicated to providing you with a
great dining experience. They work to support their
families, and in doing so, are frequently away from their
families to ensure that you enjoy quality time with yours.
Many people may mistakenly believe that these servers
are paid minimum wage by their employer. This is not
the case. They depend on their customers to make a
living wage.
Another bit of information, of which most people are
not aware, is that servers are required to pay a tip share
out of their total tips.
If customers tip 10 percent, the server may be tipping
out 3 percent, therefore walking out with a 7 percent tip.
That does little to feed their children.
SNext time you go to work and spend six to nine hours
to earn a paycheck to support your family and youth
Slifestyle, just remember that servers are doing the same.:
They may not sit in a cubicle and make phone calls all
day, but they are physically running to accommodate
your every need for the hour or so you are dining.
Please consider this when the bill is presented. If your
experience was pleasant, then tip appropriately.
; It is highly disconcerting to servers when they work
very hard for their money and are greatly disappointed
by the lack of courtesy from customers. If you can't
Afford the appropriate tip, you probably should not be
dining out. .
. As a final note, I know that everyone has theirown
"bad" service story. Truly bad service (not from someone
in training or if it cannot be attributed directly to the
server) should be reported to management so that the
appropriate action can be taken.
But in my experience (and I dine out frequently), this is
rarely a problem because servers really do want to
provide good service. They depend on it for their liveli-
hood!

Another supporter of trial marriages

First of all, I have been married since 1982.
We met in 1981, he proposed three months later. My
mom suggestedwe live together for at least six months
before we got married to make sure we were compatible,
because once I moved out I had to stay out. She had a
divorce after 21 years and eight children later. Most of
which have been married 20 years or longer.
We have had a lot of money problems, children prob-
lems, etc., but the underlying thing is we love each other
very much.

Platinum
The platinum group met-
als comprise six closely
related metals: Platinum,
Palladium, Rhodium,
Ruthenium, Iridium and
Osmium.
Platinum (symbol PI) was
accepted as a precious
metal only after the sec-
ond half of 19th century
and has a deep luster and
a rich, white color. It is rarer
and heavier than all pre-
cious metals and consid-
ered to be more valuable
than gold.
Platinum is often used to
set the most valuable
gems to produce the
finest jewelry.
Platinum holds gem-
stones most securely,
because its strength and
neutral color enhances
the brilliance and depth
of diamonds and precious
stones. Because of its den-
sity and weight, you can
feel ,the difference
between platinum and
other precious metals.
There are no karat marks
to identify platinum.
In the United States plat-
inum is usually marked: PT
or PLAT. In Europe, plat-
inum is identified by the
following marks: 950 or
PT950. Since platinum is
the purest metal it rarely
causes an allergic reac-
tion. There Is an increased
interest In platinum jewelry
both In the US and
abroad.

Achieving the certifica-

Today, Scott's Tree Ser-

Though the hurricane

crews will remove trees that
are too damaged or present

the agency's outreach
tactics and brainstorm
ways to improve them.
For Ms. Deigl, this is the
mission to which she was
assigned when she was
hired in April.
"We want to take the
organization to the next
level," she said. "Or the
next five levels up."
Ms. Deigl stressed that
no services will be cut
during the overhaul and
said some could even be
expanded.
Most of the agency's $5
million annual budget
trickles from federal and
state programs. Attract-
ing private donations,
however, will be crucial to
the agency's future.
The popular Meals on
Wheels program, which
delivers hot dishes to
homebound seniors, has
a waiting list, and other
services need infusions of
,) ecash-tos reach more peo-
ple.
"Our clientele tends to
be those who need it the
most financially, physi-
cally and cognitively," Ms.
Deigl said.
At the same time, she
added, her agency must
tailor its services for
everyone from newly
inducted senior citizens
in their 60s to people at
the century mark.
Bridging this 40-year
Sgap, Ms. Deigl said, can
be a challenge.
The Council on Aging;,
which operates senior
centers in Vero Beach and
Sebastian, is also consid-
ering a move from its
headquarters on 14th
Street.
SSelling the land, mov-
ing or rebuilding are all
.being considered,' 'Ms.
Deigl said. She describes
the council campus, col-
lection of beige and
green buildings wrapped
around a parking lot, as
S"tired."
It can also be tough to
locate because a Dodge
dealership and other
commercial buildings
shield it from busy U.S. 1.
Yet thousands of sen-
iors turn out every month
for its dances, yoga class-
es and other offerings.
"We have a much more
young and active elderly
community," Ms. Deigl
said. "The 50s of today
are much like the 30s or,
40s." ; ':: :.
The rebranding cam-
paign comes two months
after a countywide
' assessment determined
that 20 percent of Indian
River's seniors are not
Receiving the proper level
of care.


SThe assessment, con-
Sducted by the Children's
Services Advisory Com-
mittee, also said the
county's population of
people 85 and older was
rising.
These findings, which
arrived during Ms. Deigl's
seventh month on the


job, added urgency to the
council's current cam-
paign.
Ms. Deigl began her
tenure last April in the
shadow of scandal.
Her predecessor,
Arlene Fletcher, was fired
after an investigation
found she used agency
funds to repair hurricane


damage at her mother's
home and then failed to
disclose it to the council's
board of directors.
Now, the council is
relying on Ms. Deigl to
point the way.
"My vision," she said,
"is for people to see that
we have an active popu-
lation of seniors here."

Being a mentor is
rewarding for
both the Big
Brother or Big
Sister as it is for
the Little Brother
or Sister. Chris
Williams, Drav-
ius,10, Jay &
Rachel Heddings,
J'Kerra, 9, Nyla, 4
& Erin Williams
are just a few
reaping the
emotional j|
benefits of
mentoring.

tant to me. I think I expect-
ed I would be the one
doing all the teaching and
giving. It's not that way at
all and I feel so blessed to
have J'Kerra in my life."
Mrs. Heddings and J'Ker-
ra have been matched for
just a few months, but
have enjoyed everything
from a special manicure
together, to an adventure
in baking. .They even
enjoyed visits to see Santa,
and an exclusive stamp
craft class, which was
taught by one of Mrs. Hed-
dings' co-workers and
given as a birthday gift to
Mrs. Heddings.
Big Brothers Big Sisters,
which provides a variety of
different mentoring
opportunities, believes
that it's as simple as put-
ting a friend in a child's life,
and as important as put-
ting hope in a child's
future.
Judi Miller, executive
director of Big Brothers Big
Sisters for St. Lucie, Indian
River and Okeechobee
counties, said the Treasure


Coast is full of incredible
volunteer mentors, who
generously donate their
time and talent to help
children in the communi-
ty.
In the last year, more
than 1,500 children have
been served by volunteer
mentors, who spend an
average of one to three
hours a week working with
a child.
Mrs. Miller added that
Big Brothers Big Sisters
volunteers undergo a
stringent screening
process, including back-
ground checks and train-
ing, prior to being
matched with a "little."
For Mrs. Heddings and
J'Kerra, the experience has
been life changing. Once
the pair became comfort-
able as friends, Mrs. Hed-
dings noticed J'Kerra's sib-
lings looking out the
window wistfully as the
pair drove away for anoth-
er exciting adventure.
Mrs. Heddings and her
husband, Jay, got permis-
sion from the kids' mom,
as well as Big Brothers Big
Sisters, to host a special
activity for all three chil-
dren once a month.


"It's an evening everyone
looks forward to, and we
start getting excited about
it well in advance," said
Mrs. Heddings. "We don't
do anything special, we
just hang out together. Last
month, we all went to visit
Santa and saw the Christ-
mas lights in Tradition. I'm
sure the kids look forward
to our time together as
much as Jay and I do."
Since becoming a men-
tor, Mrs. Heddings' friends
have noticed how much
fun she's having, and one
has begun the process of
becoming a "big," too.
It doesn't require any
special skills or education
to become a "big," just a
caring heart.
Studies have shown that
children who are men-
tored through Big Brothers
Big Sisters are:
.*46 percent less likely to
start using drugs.
+27 percent less likely to
start drinking,
464 percent more likely


to have a positive attitude
toward school,
*52 percent less likely to
skip school,
*55 percent better able
to express their feelings,
*37 percent less likely to
cut class,
*64 percent more likely
to develop high levels of
self-confidence,
*33 percent less likely to
hit someone.
Since 1984, the local Big
Brothers Big Sisters is one
of more than 500 national
Big Brothers Big Sisters
affiliates..
Volunteers range from
teenagers to individuals in
their late 80s. Most of the
littlee" are school-aged
and come from single-par-
ent homes, and many are
being raised by grandpar-
ents or guardians.
If you are interested in
learning more about Big
Brothers Big Sisters, or if
you'd like to become a
"big," call Big Brothers Big
Sisters, at (772) 466-8535.

Scans
From page Al
common in hospitals
worldwide.
Initially, the scans were
known as computed axial
tomography, or CAT scans.
In their first incarnations,
the scanners could only
capture images along the
long axis of the body and
render them in two dimen-
sions. Today, more power-
ful computers can refor-
mat that data to create
lifelike, three-dimensional
detail.
During the last four
years, Mr. Pflug said, CT
scans have made incredi-
ble advances, especially
with scanners that capture
"slices" images along a
particular axis that can
be "stacked" to form a
complete image.
Now, the power is also
being harnessed for pre-
ventative procedures.
Patients whose family
histories include heart dis-
ease and high cholesterol -
but have yet to show
symptoms can undergo
CT scans to pinpoint
potential trouble spots.
The scanners' power
isn't limited entirely to
matters of life or death,
either.
Mr. Pflug recalled one
patient who complained
that it felt like she was
walking around with a
pebble trapped inside her
foot.
A CT scan revealed that
the culprit was actually a


Robert Pflug, the CT
scan supervisor at
Indian River Medical
Center, studies a
three-dimensional
rendering of a skull
created almost
Instantaneously
from images record-
: ed during a CT scan.
Mr. Pflug and other
technicians use the
hospital's powerful
scanners to diag-
nose strokes and
other cardiac
maladies.

calcified sweat gland,
invisible to X-rays.
The other component of
the hospital's updated
imaging technology is
largely invisible. The Pic-
ture Archive Computer
System, known as PACS,
allows medical personnel
to store countless X-rays
and CT images digitally.
Technicians can grab
the images off of the hos-
pital's wireless Internet
network and doctors can
log onto the system from
their home computers,
familiarizing themselves
with a particular case
before even arriving at
work.
Mr. Pflug also serves as
the administrator of
IRMC's PACS system.
Dozens of hospitals world-
wide are linked through
the program.
In the middle of the
night, IRMC technicians
send the images to doctors
in Australia, where it is
midday when it's very
early morning here.
Australian doctors
review the images and
then relay their diagnoses
to an emergency room on
the other side of the globe.
That way, ER patients
here can be diagnosed
instantly.
Benefits aside, Mr. Pflug
is quick to point out that
the enormous image
library has been protected
against power outages and
other potential disasters.
"So, God forbid, if we
have a tidal wave, we can
reload it all," he said.

very newspaper,

has programs for start-
ing the year off right,
with diet and exercise

This year, through
January, I'm going to run
:columns about eating
:better, getting exercise
-and stopping smoking. I
.think those probably top
most people's resolution
Ihit parade.
I'm going to talk about
something I call "the
-power of one;" that is,
,making small changes,
:one at a time, instead of
tryingto overhaul your
entire lifestyle at once.
That effort, for most of
us, is doomed to failure.
The American Heart
Association recom-
mends healthy eating
(not dieting) and a
healthylifestyle as the
keys to fighting heart
disease. The changes
and suggestions they'
make fit easily into the
-idea of the power of one.
You can make little
,changes, even one at a
time, to find yourself
eating better. One
proviso: talk to your
doctor before changing
your diet, especially if
you have an illness, take
medications or are
'pregnant or nursing.
The three major
.recommendations are:
Use up at least as
many calories as you
take in.
Start paying attention
to labels and portion

Hello smart shoppers.
Unbelievable: It's
2007, and we're still
.driving around in cars. Years
ago I was sure we would all be
traveling iii:space ships by
now, but.cars. How archaic.
I am available for talks from

paper'at (772) 465-5656. I will
get the message.
I received an e-mail from
"Boiling mad in Daytona"
and thought at first it was a
joke, but apparently it wasn't.
When Daytona boiled water
to cook pasta, the water
literally exploded when the
pasta was added. I always rub
a little oil around the pot
above the water and have no
problems. Adding oil to the
water is fine for wide noodles,
such as lasagna or fettuccini,
but the oil prevents the sauce
from clinging to regular
pasta. Daytona said none of
these traditional things
worked. There's a lot to be
said about boiling water on
the Internet.
I read about surface tension
of water and bubbles that
form and on and on.
First, use a larger pot than
you would need and only fill
it up halfway.
Second, rub some oil
around the pot above the
water. When the water starts
to boil, lower the heat. I place
a wooden spoon in'thiepot as
I add the pasta. I've also.
heard about placing a wood-
en spoon across the top of the
pot; whatever works.

Hopefully, this

mentioning using an angel-

Taurus -April 20-May 20
Pay attention to details. Listen carefully to what oth-
ers around you are saying to avoid misunderstand-
ing later. There may be hidden messages that you
are missing. Become sensitive to your inner
thoughts and feelings. Listen to your intuition and
instincts. Often, unspoken words ring truer than
those actually being said. Listen to and act on the
true yearnings in your heart, and all will be well.
Gemini- May 21-June 21
You learn just as much from your experiences as you
do from reading and studying. Anytime you feel
struggle, pain, resistance or hardship, it is the uni-
verse telling you to put the brakes on, slow down
and regroup. You desire change. Don't resist it when
it comes. Let it be a springboard to new and greater
things ahead. There are many new opportunities
ahead that will allow you' much new growth if you
listen.
Cancer June 22-July 22
Now is the time to act on your dreams. Live in the
moment. Manifest your goals and make them real.
What do you truly want in life? It is time to become


clear and move forward. Actualization encompasses
all levels of existence physical, mental, emotional
and spiritual. When you grow in one area, it reflects
in others as well. Stretch and extend your power.
Make your move. Your dreams really can come true.
Leo July 23-Aug. '22
Stand strongly in any undertaking that your heart is
in. You can get through it and make it happen. You
have it in you to produce positive results. You are
greatly supported by the earth and the universe.
Inner strength comes from knowing that you can.
Rise above challenges in life. Master the little things,
and the big things aren't so big anymore. Go the
extra distance and do what is needed. You will be
richly rewarded.
Virgo Aug. 23-Sept 21
Proceed forward. Let go of old doubts and fears.
Right action is occurring. Move along to the next
step in your plans. Just be sure that your direction is
clear. You know the correct things to do. Be objec-
tive. Get in touch with the true yearnings in your
heart and soul and keep on moving toward them.

or a homeowner, one
of the greatest thrills is
to have a lush, green
lawn all year long. Unfortu-
nately, during the winter
months in Florida, this can
be a real challenge.
In our area there are two
types of lawns that the
majority of Floridians
share. St. Augustine and
Bahia. Most people have
the Floratam variety of St.
Augustine grass.
Before I get into winter
lawn maintenance, I would
like to talk a little about
Floratam grass.
The Floratam variety of
St. Augustine grass was
introduced to Florida in
1973 and is used almost
exclusively to other grasses.
Floratam 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
Florida's intense sunlight.
This type of lawn is also
relatively chinch bug
resistant. This is a good
point, since many of the
insecticides that were
effective for chinch bug
control such as Dursban
and Diazinon 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 weeds.
Bahia grass, on the other
hand, offers some disad-
vantages 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 over.
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 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 overseed with
rye grass. When you
overseed your lawn with
ryegrass, you help keep that
green look all winter long.
When the warmer weather
arrives, the ryegrass will dye
out and your lawn will
again fill in very nicely for
the remainder 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 overseed with
Bahia grass seed in the
spring. If you have a
Floratam lai\n, you can fill
in patches with grass plugs.
Remember, Floratam is not
available in seed form.
Proper watering and
fertilizer is also essential to
a healthy lawn. Always keep
your lawn evenly moist.
Under-watering, as well as
over-watering, can both
cause problems, such as
drying out or fungus.


A regular fertilizer
program is essential for a
lush green lawn. You should
apply a good quality slow
release lawn food about
once every three months.
February is an excellent
time to apply a good quality
weed and feed. A weed and
feed product has the
advantage of both feeding
your lawn and getting rid of
annoying weeds.
Care should be exercised
when choosing weed
control products, because
you can only use certain
herbicides on certain
lawns.
If you have a Floratam
lawn, be sure you choose a
product that contains
Atrazine. This is a safe
herbicide for use in St.
Augustine variety grasses.
If you have Bahia grass,
choose a product with 2.4D__
or an equivalent. Using the
wrong herbicide can have
undesirable effects. Always
apply your fertilizer
according to the package
directions and always use a
spreader. Never try to apply
lawn food by hand.
With a little care and
some work, you can have a
green lawn year-round.
Next week we will talk
about choosing and
growing tropicals and cool
ways to display them.

Cool new gadgets


Happy holidays
everyone.

I hope everyone had an
awesome 2006 and is
ready for another amaz-
ing year. It never ceases
to amaze me just how
fast technology advances
and it's around the
holiday season that you
can really see it. Some of
the gadgets we take for
granted now were just
inconceivable a few short
years ago or were so far
out of reach price-wise
that all the average Joe
could do was dream.
I love living in the
future. Just thinking
about all the cool gadgets
available today brings
out the geek in me.
Whether you are looking
for new devices to attach
to your computer,
personal sound gear or
something to add to your
home entertainment
center (think wide-
screen flat panel TV's
that hang on the wall like
a picture) now is a great
time to be alive.
T trends that seem to
just keep on trending are
lower prices and more
power.
Let's talk about what
seems to be the hottest
"must have" device this
season: the iPod. It
wasn't too long ago if you
wanted a personal stereo
, system you had to settle


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This

for a small carry around
CD player. These tended
to suck up battery life
and had a tendency to
skip if you were too
rough with them making
them tricky to use when
exercising.
A few years ago, we
started seeing mp3
players hit the streets,
which changed the way
people listen to music.
Using completely differ-
ent technology, these
devices did away with
having to carry around
disks that needed to be
swapped and just store
the music internally. But
the first mp3 players
were small (by today's
standards that is).
With the ability to store
and play songs without
having to swap disks and
without eating batteries
mp3 players were here to
stay. But oh how they've

grown. Not in size mind
you, (they are still tiny
and getting smaller) but
in power. Looking at the
specs for iPods today fills
me with a sense of
wonder.
Today's iPods come in
at 80 gigabytes (and
growing) and are capable
of storing in excess of
20,000 songs. They let
you watch movies on a
little screen, store tens of
thousands of pictures
and are still small
enough for your shirt
pocket. And the popular-
ity of these little gadgets
just keeps getting
stronger. I wonder what
they will be capable of
doing five years from
now?
One of the remarkable
things about the iPod
(and other mp3 players)
is the amount of storage
they have. I can remem-
ber not too long ago
spending a couple
hundred bucks for a 1 gig
hard drive for my desk-
top computer. Now, 1 gig
seems tiny, quaint even.
There is an old saying
among computer users
and that's, "You can
never have too much
RAM." And the same goes
for hard drive space. I am
amazed when I look at
the prices of memory
and hard drives and see

Nutrient-rich foods

that are good for you, but
are lower in calories.
Choose foods, such as

Select dairy products
that are fat free, 1 per-

Cut back on foods with
partially hydrogenated
vegetable oils; that
includes most packaged
desserts, cookies and a
lot of bakery products.
Try to cut back your
daily cholesterol intake
to less than 300 mil-
ligrams a day, or as
advised by your doctor.
Check the labels.
Cut back on soft drinks
with added sugar. These
are truly empty calories.
Choose and prepare
foods with little or no
salt. Aim to eat less than
2,300 milligrams of salt
per day. Experiment with
herbs and spices to flavor
your food.
If you drink, drink in
moderation. That means
one drink per day for
women and two for men
if your doctor says that's
OK. Remember, beer
counts as a drink.
Keep your eye on
portion size; use a
smaller plate and you'll
eat less. Fill up on veg-
etables and make the
meat the smallest part of
the meal.
All of us could make a

we eat, and many of
these could be done

changes to the diet. Start
small.
Add a piece of fruit
with breakfast or lunch
and have it in place of a
fat-filled snack.
Buy bread and cereal
that says whole grain and
look for those without
added sugar. Give it
flavor with fruit on top.
At a restaurant, set
aside half of your entree
and take it home; most
.restaurants serve bigger
portions than most of us
need.
If you make small
changes, and you start to
notice that your slacks
feel looser and you feel
better, or your doctor
tells you that your blood
pressure is down, you'll
be encouraged to keep
making those changes.
Don't get discouraged.

outrageous sizes with
prices that make me do a
double take. I've recently
seen 500 gigabyte hard
drives (that's a terabyte)
running for close to the
same price that I paid for
a one gig drive just a few
short years ago. Even my
phone (a Palm Treo) has
a 2 gig SD card in it that I
got for a steal. Two gigs in
my phone; isn't that
something? Who ever
would have thought?
Memory and storage
aren't the only things that
have grown while shrink-
ing in price. Have you
looked at the specs for a
new computer these
days? It seems like
computers today come
right out of the box with
just about everything you
need and then some.
Things such as built in
wireless (Intel's Centrino
chip) are common, along
with other standards,
such as DVD burners,
massive hard drives,
plenty of RAM and (here's
a new one that I've been
seeing a lot of) "dual core


processors.
Now when you buy a
computer, (if it happens
to have the dual core
label on it), you are
actually buying two
computers in one box.
The dual core label
means that there are two
central processing units
(or CPUs) in it to share
the load making today's
machines the most
powerful computers
available to the general
public in history.
And all for a fraction of
the cost of what a "decent
machine cost a few short
years ago.
How we see what's
going on in the computer
has undergone some
radical changes, too. It
wasn't too long ago when
the only thing available
for monitors were big
bulky TV-like boxes that
weighed a ton. Today
when you buy a new
machine, you are more
likely than not to have it
come with a nice, sleek,
lightweight, flat-screen
LCD monitor.

.I know that for a while,
there was one company
giving them away for free
(I don't know if they are
doing that anymore, but
the price of a nice flat
screen certainly has come
down). The nice thing
about flat screen moni-
tors is, they free up a lot
of your desktop space
that used to be taken up
by the bulk of a big square
CRT monitor.
And for die-hard
computer users (ready for
a really neat concept?)
some of the new flat
screen LCD and plasma
TVs have input jacks for
computers, giving us the
ability to expand our
monitors from the typical
17-inch or so to a whop-
ping 50- or even 60-inch
display.
The first time I saw
someone using a 50-inch
plasma TV as a desktop
monitor, my jaw about hit


the floor. You typically
don't think about using a
massive flat screen TV in
the office (the usual place
for that is the family room
right?) but the effects are
astounding. And the
clarity? I can remember
hooking up an old PC to a
TV a few years ago and
was disappointed in how
fuzzy the image was. With
these new, flat, wide-
screen monsters, the
image is crystal clear
making them perfect for
anyone who spends hours
in front of their machine.
(I know what I have on
my wish list).
Well I don't even think I
scratched the surface of
-what's hot this year. May
each and every one of you
have a wonderful 2007.

about it; no way can you
make a low-fat scampi,
but by using a butter
substitute in place of the
butter you can cut the fat
and cholesterol consider-
ably.
2 1/2-pounds medium
shrimp, peeled and
deveined
1 stick butter or 1/2
cup
butter substitute, such
as Smart Balance
1/2-cup extra virgin
olive oil
4 large cloves fresh
garlic, peeled and
chopped
1 tablespoon dried
parsley or several
springs of chopped
fresh
Italian
parsley
2 generous splashes of
,dry sherry
Juice of one large
lemon
SSalt and white pepper
to
taste
Melt butter and oil in
large skillet. Saute garlic
until golden. Add all
ingredients except
shrimp. Cook stirring
occasionally for about 10
minutes. Add shrimp and
cook over high heat until
they curl and turn pink,
about five minutes. Do
not overcook shrimp;
they become tough.
Thicken slightly if
desired with a mixture of
flour and water or corn-
starch and water. Add a
little at a time and bring
to a boil after each
addition. Serve with
wedges of fresh lemon.

KNIK RIVER
SHRIMP
Jim Morgan of Anchor-
age, Alaska, created this
delicious recipe for a
group of friends. One


guest had a problem
with alcohol. Now,
everyone knows that
shrimp don't run in
rivers, (I didn't know
that, did you?), and the
name he gave the recipe
was a joke.
However, there's one
poor soul in Anchorage
who still believes that
Jim caught the shrimp in
the Knik River.
Large shrimp, peeled
and de-veined
Bacon
Grated Romano cheese
Packaged B6arnaise or
Hollandaise sauce
Cut bacon slices in
half. Pre-cook to almost
done. I recommend the
microwave bacon rack
to reduce some of the
fat. Wrap each shrimp in
bacon, secure with a.
toothpick. Place on rack
in a broiler pan that had
been treated with
cooking spray. Sprinkle
shrimp with cheese.
Broil until bacon is crisp
and shrimp are done.
Dipin sauce.
I prefer Bearnaise
sauce for this recipe. If
you prepare it with a ..
butter substitute, such
as Smart Balance or
Brommel and Brown,
you can cut the choles-
terol and fat consider-
ably.

STRAWBERRY
ANGEL DELIGHT
(N IB)
Serves 10-12
This recipe is from an
old church cookbook
from 1967. I'm sure the
strawberries are the
ones packed with sugar.
You can cut the sugar in
the recipe by using
sugar-free gelatin and
the fat and cholesterol


by using low-fat, sugar-
free ice cream.

1 angel food cake
1 4 serving package
strawberry gelatin
1 cup boiling water
1 pint (2 cups) vanilla
ice
cream
1 package frozen
sliced
strawberries
Slice cake into three
even layers. Mix gelatin
with the 1 cup boiling
water; chill until slightly
thickened. Beat gelatin
at high speed until
fluffy; add ice cream
and continue beating
until mixture is very
fluffy and creamy. Add
frozen strawberries,
which have been thawed
enough to separate.
Beat at low speed just
enough to mix thor-
oughly. Spread straw-
berry mixture generous-
ly between layers and
on top and sides of cake.
Refrigerate. Best when
made a day ahead and
chilled overnight.
When a recipe is not in
my cookbook it will
have, (NIB) next to the
title.

You stop the flow when you
hold on too tightly. Step into
the river of life and keep on
swimming. Sinking is not .an
option. You will prevail.
Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec.21
Now is the time to rejuvenate
yourself. Newenergy, enthusi-
asm and hope are abundant
Regroup and reclaim your
strength and power. Don't
take life so seriously. Take time

work in this adventure called
life. Relax, align and balance
body, mind, heart and soul.
Find your center. Define and
refine your space. Proceed in
awareness with your new
direction and determination,.
and continue to shine.
Capricor Dec. 22-Jan. 19

from uncomfortable situa-
tions. Who said you have to
struggle? Don't allow it or put
up with it There are too many
positive, fun things to enjoy in
life without feeling bogged
down. Sometimes, less is
more.
Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Take a moment and really
appreciate all you have been
given in life. A change in atti-
tude changes lives. A great
attitude creates miracles. What
is your response to life in gen-
eral? Take an inventory and
remove anything negative that
has crept in. You are a kind
soul by nature. Respond with
gratitude when others show
you little acts of kindness. Love
is a two-way street Let others
give back to you more. You
ave earned it and deserve it.
Pisces Feb. 19-March 20
Your only limits are those that
you place on yourself. Be
bold, and mighty forces will
come to your aid. The time is
at hand to create new and
exciting adventures. The ball is
in your court. The pen is in
your hand. Let your actions
create new and positive
results in life. Do you know
what you truly want? Be artis-
tic and intellectual. Sew. Cook.
Start a new project. Invest in
yourself. Live your dreams and
become all you came here to
be. It's your true destiny. You
can do it.

W e are all stu-
dents and teach-
ers in life. How
do you think life survived
from the early ages? The
elders, respected and
honored ones taught the
younger ones about life,
survival and doing better.
All forms of life are
valuable and sacred,
whether it is human, ani-
mal, plant or ideas living
in the heart and soul that
need to be fed, encour-
aged to grow, bloom, give
birth, bear fruit and
increase. This is the way
we are supposed to live.
Unless you were born
of great privilege, vision


or intelligence, then you
must learn these human
things and then hone the
skills in order to make
your life's quest valuable,
meaningful and impor-
*tant.
How is this possible?
I believe that the start-
ing point is to learn to
love your life the way it is
now, no matter-. how
much or how little you
have. Say, "I love my life
just the way it is.'
Some of you may say
that you hate your life the
way it is now. My
response is: In life, what
you sow is what you reap.
Sow hate, negativity or


revenge, and you will
reap back more of the
same. Somewhere along
the line, you have to stop
the internal war and find
peace within yourself.
You cannot move forward
and grow in positive ways
until you stop the war
within yourself, and then
with other important
people in your life.
If you hate your life,
this is your choice, too.
But it is a negative
choice. There is a better
way.
It all starts when we
begin to turn away some-
what from the outer side
and begin to take the
inner journey, quiet the
mind, find forgiveness of
ourselves and of others
and move away from
divided thinking. Open
the heart, listen to the
instincts and begin to live
on the positive side of
life.
Living this way all
comes down to choices.
When we listen to and
follow the mind, it is
always chattering, keep-
ing us awake at night
when we should be sleep-
ing and keeping us in a
fog. The mind is never
sure.
If you want a restful
night's sleep, you must
find a way to focus it
inward on something
that gives you pleasure,
fun, zest and rest. Who
needs to burn out at this
stage of life from too
much thinking'and over-
analyzing? This is outer-
directed energy and will
lead you toward negativi-
ty.
Before you go to bed,
read something positive
that inspires you, tell a

joke or read a poem or
inspirational tract that
leaves your mind in a
positive frame. Life is
sacred and valuable. It's
your life. Refuse to start,
live and end your daily
life in negativity.
Do you want to live a
positive, peaceful, happy,
healthy, abundant, cre-
ative and love-filled life?
Of course you do. It all
comes down to the choic-
es you make. If you want
to be peaceful, then don't
put up with negative peo-
ple who are angry and
want to fight. Say no to it.
Don't put up with it. Life
is too short. Stay away
from negative people
who live an unhealthy,
stressful life.,
Instead, hang around
and communicate with
positive-minded and
soulful people who
inspire you and encour-
age you to do your best in
life. Focus on culture, art,.
music, dance and noble
causes that help you to
rise up and embrace your
own personal talents and
greatness. The way we
change the world is by
changing ourselves first
and embracing positive
attitudes, culture and
ways of life. Become all
that you came here in
this life to become.
One of the four most
important things that we
ever do with our lives
born as human on earth
is to honor our family
heritage, no matter how
close or how far we have
been challenged. If we
are to grow, emotionally,
spiritually or universally,
the first thing we must do
is forgive our past. You
cannot hold judgment on
the past with hard feel-
ings and grudges. It only
comes back on you. If
you have been abused,
abandoned or neglected,
usually the person who
did it isn't able to fix it.
So, who is left? Even if it
hurts, you must learn
from, forgive, release old
hurt and move on to grow
a new and better life. The
earth, honoring the law
of the circle of life, does
this every year. Mother
Earth says that no matter
what happened to last
year's crop whether
the bugs killed it or
drought or flood got it -
release the accumulated
negativity, plant new
seeds, move on and grow
a new and better life.
Next, figure out what
you want in life. What is
your soul's purpose?
Then reach out and. get
positive support from
your blood or extended
family.
Next, take time to cele-
brate life's small and
larger victories with your
circle of.friends. Then
when this wonderful cir-
cle of love is working, it

Emergency Radio Beacons prohibited beginning Jan. 1


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS
The U.S. Coast Guard
reminds all boaters that
beginning Jan. 1, both
121.5 and 243 MHz Emer-
gency Position Indicating
Radio Beacons are prohib-
ited from use in both com-
mercial and recreational
watercraft.
Boaters wishing to have
an emergency rescue bea-
con aboard their vessel
must have a digital 406
MHz model.
The date to stop using
121.5 MHz EPIRBs, Jan. 1,
is in preparation for when
satellite processing of dis-
tress signals from all
121.5/243 MHz beacons
will terminate, on Feb. 1.
Following the termina-
tion date, only 406 MHz
beacons will be detected
by the International
Cospas-Sarsat Satellite
System, which provides
distress alert and location
data for search and rescue
operations around the
world.
The regulation applies to
all Class A, B, and S
121.5/243 MHz EPIRBs. It
does not affect 121.5/243
MHz man overboard
devices, which work
directly with a base alert-
ing unit only and not with
the satellite system.
This change was brought

From page B8
will reach out to others,
multiply and bring you
respect, honor and
recognition for all you
gave to start this positive
wheel of life in motion.
You may not have even
wanted the praise, but be
humbled by it, grasp it
and give credit to others
who helped you along
the way. Then multiply
all these wonderful
blessings for all your
remaining days on earth.
- This is truly a wonder-
ful life well-lived, and,
entirely within your
grasp to accomplish. You
have it in you. You can do
it. You are a genius. There
is not another person liv-
ing on earth that has
your set of talents,
desires and passions. My
greatest wish for you is
that you find all these
things and more.
Once.you have made it,
take care of yourself. You
did most of these won-
derful things. Then save
for your own and your
family's future safety.
Then when others want
to know how you did all


about by the unreliability
of the 121.5/243 MHz bea-
cons in an emergency situ-
ation.
Data reveals that with a
121.5 MHz beacon, only
one alert out of every 50 is
a genuine distress situa-
tion. This has a significant
effect on expending the
limited resources of search
and rescue personnel and
platforms.
With 406 MHz beacons,
false alerts have been
reduced significantly, and,
when properly registered,
can usually be resolved
with a telephone call to the
beacon owner. Conse-
quently, real alerts can
receive the attention they
deserve.
When a 406 MHz beacon
signal is received, search
and rescue personnel can
retrieve information from
a registration database,
including the beacon
owner's contact informa-
tion, emergency contact
information and
vessel/aircraft identifying
characteristics. Having this
information allows the
Coast Guard, or other res-
cue personnel, to respond
appropriately.
In the United States,
users are legally required
to directly register their
beacon in the U.S. 406
MHz Beacon Registration

Tips on planningvacation reunion


reunion is a great
way to gather family
embers, class-
mates, old friends, wedding
parties or organizations
with the same affinity, for a
wonderful vacation.
Whether your group is
large or small, consider
getting help from the start
by calling in the experts.
Travel agents can take


care of details ranging from
recommending appropri-
ate destinations, to arrang-
ing for airline tickets and
making hotel or car rental
reservations.
For large groups, a travel
agent can negotiate special
group airfare and hotel
rates that would be other-
wise unavailable.
Start planning early

Let your soil tell you


it needs water


Janet Bargar is a water
quality extension agent-
from the University of
Florida for the Indian
River County Extension
Service
D oes your lawn feel
like a wet sponge
: in the middle of
the day? Is dollarweed
popping up all over the
place? If you said yes to
either of these questions,
you are watering too
much. The University of
Florida recommends
irrigating lawns twice a
week from March to
October and one to two
times every 10 to 14 days
from November to Febru-
ary. You should apply one-
half to three-fourths inch
each time when there is no
rainfall during the week,
and irrigations should be
reduced when there has
been rain. If these recom-
mendations make your
head spin or you forget to
turn offthe irrigation
system after a rainstorm,
consider installing a
sensor that monitors the
soil moisture.
Soil moisture sensors
check soil moisture levels
constantly and prevent the
irrigation system from
operating when more
water isn't needed.
According to a study
conducted by researchers
at the University of Flori-
da's Department of
Agricultural and Biological
Engineering, the sensors
reduced irrigation water
usage by more than half.
The research showed that
irrigation systems
equipped with soil mois-
ture sensors used 56
Percent less water than
i systems that only had rain
sensors and timers set at
twice a week. They used
seventy percent less water
than systems that were on
a twice-weekly watering
Schedule and did not have
a rain sensor. This reduc-
tion saves you money in
the long run. The sensors
Tested in the UF study
ranged in price from $75
to $350 and could pay for

sensor is a tensiometer,
which consists of a water-
filled tube with a porous
cup at the bottom. Water
moves between the cup
and the soil until equilibri-
um is reached. As the
water flows out of the cup,
a partial vacuum is created
that results in a reading on
a gauge. As the soil dries,
the gauge reading increas-
es. Conversely, as the soil
moisture increases, the
gauge reading decreases.
This sensor is easily
managed and gives you
the flexibility to manually
monitor soil moisture or to
automatically control your
irrigation system (with
modifications) when the
soil moisture level drops
below a predetermined
value. Be sure to contact
an irrigation professional
if you would like to modify
your irrigation system.
If you decide that ten-
siometers are right for you,
there are a few things to
remember:
*Keep air out of the
instrument or you will get
inaccurate readings.

should be conducted
periodically to remove air
that may enter with
normal water flow.
*When installing the
tensiometer, do not force
it into the soil. Core a hole,
insert the instrument, and
then firmly pack soil
around it..
*The porous cup must
be placed in the root zone.
This will give you the most
accurate reading of your
turfgrass' water needs.
*After set-up, wait
several hours before
reading the instrument
gauge. The instrument
needs time to reach
equilibrium.
*Tensiometers are
delicate and need to be
protected from impact by
equipment or animals.
Never leave the instru-
ment filled with water
during freezing condi-
tions.

Egypt: Gift of the Nile lecture scheduled


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS


A program entitled "Egypt: Gift of
the Nile" will be presented Jan. 6 at
10 a.m., in the first floor meeting
room of the Indian River County
library. It will cover the Pyramids,
Sphinx and other landmarks that
make up the country's 5,000-year
history, as well as an in-depth look at
today's Egypt with its diverse and


vibrant culture.
Milt Thomas, the lecturer, will
recount his personal experiences as
he visited homes, farms and busi-
nesses throughout the country.
Mr. Thomas has written for numer-
ous publications including Fifty Plus
Lifestyles, the Treasure Coast Busi-
ness Journal, Kiplinger's Florida
Business Letter and Travel World
Weekly magazines. He has authored


books, including "Common Sense
Management," "Cave of a Thousand
Tales," and "Jordan's Quest."
Formerly, he was an executive with
CBS, and Polygram records, then
served as director of economic
development for the Indian River
Chamber of Commerce.
This program is open to all.
For information, call Marla Good-
man at (772) 770-5060, ext 121.

recruit helpers. But with
proper planning that will
be avoided, to be sure;
that's almost a given.

Take advantage of
holiday gatherings

The holiday season is a
great time for doing some
important reunion organ-
izing, so use some of your
time together to make
decisions that can really
move planning process
along. Have a firm date.
Notify group members.
Choose a location.
Determine a budget and
invite members to begin
contributing to a reunion
fund. Consider setting up a
bank account.
Be well organized, but
most of all don't forget to
choose the best travel
agent, to suit your needs.

Commit to
committees

Appoint committees and
regular schedule meetings
if/when possible. Confer-
ence calling or computer
sessions may work well for
you when members of the
group are spread apart.

Winter is a great
time to prepare
for summer trips

If your group has decided
to produce a quilt or other
reunion project (cookbook,
family history, memory
book or directory), starting
early is very wise. Use
holiday visits and corre-
spondence to ask members
for information or content.
This is a great time of year
to outline your expecta-
tions for next summer's
reunion in a newsletter or
broadcast e-mail.

Make history

If you are the family
genealogist or historian,
you'll need to prepare
your materials for display


and sharing at the
reunion. Pictures of
ancestors and their homes
must be collected and
organized, and visits to
the places they lived have
to be arranged ahead of
time.
Collecting artifacts and
labeling them to explain
what they are/were used
for and assembling tapes
of oral history from family
elders are just a few things
you can complete this
winter in preparation for
your summer event.
Family history is the one
thing everyone at the
reunion has in common.
Celebrate it.

Other considerations

Identify a reunion
theme that connects all
family members. Shared
experiences and memo-
ries are a powerful source
of unity for any group.
Organize your reunion
around a theme that
everyone in your group
can relate to.
Plan activities that
focus on the commonal-
ties family members
share.
Activities that reinvigo-
rate cherished family
moments strengthen
bonds. Old family photo-
graphs, a night of swap-
ping stories, photo
albums, videos or games
that require knowledge of
the groups' prior activi-
ties.
Elicit input from
everyone who is going to
attend about time, place
and activities. This gives
all the family members a
sense of ownership for the
reunion rather than
simply being an attendee.
Recognize that there
may be some pre-reunion
jitters, and take steps to
help curtail them.
Plan activities that allow
everyone to feel like an
important part of the fam-
ily and let people know
beforehand about these
plans.
Develop some activi-


ties that require family
members to work together
and depend on each other
to complete a task.
Besides shared experi-
ences, another way to
build unity is through
interdependence. Working
together on any project
creates a sense of accom-
plishment and together-
ness.
Don't underestimate
the importance of plan-
ning, organization and
structure.
The research clearly
indicates that successful
family reunions don't just
happen they are well
planned, structured and
organized.
Make important
decisions, rules and
boundaries prior to the
reunion. Use everyone's
input.
All of us have lifestyles
and daily living patterns
that make sense in our
own adult lives and
families, but these might
be different from other
adults in the group.
It's essential that rules
for daily living are dis-
cussed and compromises
reached prior to the
reunion rather than
during it.
After all is said and


done, and after the great
planning effort as delin-
eated above, sit back,
enjoy the great moments
during the event from
which you will return with
precious memories.

YOUTHACVIrLES & SPORTS


Vero Beach pins down success


BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
VERO BEACH While
Vero Beach boys' wrestling
coach Chris Carrington
spent many years compet-
ing on the mat, an old
injury prevents him from
spending much time on it
now.
"It still affects me to this
day," Carrington said. "I
still think I can wrestle
with these kids."
Despite the malady, Car-
rington's years competing
as a member on the
wrestling team at Central
High School in Tampa has
given him an insider's look
at what it takes to be a suc-
cessful mat technician.
Carrington spent four
years on varsity while at
Central, where he was a
three-time state qualifier.
Two of those years he
placed, including taking
fifth as a junior and third in
his final season.
Although his prowess on
the mat earned him a
scholarship to compete at
the next level, a knee injury
sustained from his years
wrestling and on the foot-
ball field forced Carrington
to cut his collegiate career
short.
Although unable to com-
pete, Carrington put his
knowledge of the sport to
good use by turning his
attention to coaching.
After two years as an assis-
tant, he is in his second.
season as head coach of
the Indians.
After a 5-8 record last
season, the Indians have


showed marked improve-
ment this year. After a
dominating 52-29 win over
Martin County on Dec. 13,
Vero Beach moved to 7-5
on the season. That win,
coupled with the Indians'
earlier defeat of Treasure
Coast gave them a perfect
2-0 record at home.
Vero Beach's success has
been a welcome change for
Carrington, especially
since most of his team is
made up of underclass-
men.
"The team is extremely
young," Carrington said.
"We're starting a lot of
freshmen and sopho-
mores. We have a couple of
juniors, but no returning
seniors."
Fortunately for Carring-
ton, several of his fresh-
men gained some valuable
experience participating in
his summer wrestling pro-
gram.
One ,of those is Taylor
Lockwood, who competes
in the 103-pound weight
class.
"He's been in my sum-
mer program since sixth
grade," Carrington said.
"He's looking pretty good.
He went undefeated at the
Palm Bay Duals.
"He's stepping into the
varsity role."
Lockwood was part of a
solid team effort in Vero's
win over the Tigers, pin-
ning Jeffrey Jereld to lead
the way.
At 119, is one of the Indi-
ans' stellar sophomores,
John Durran.
"(Durran) started as a
freshman," Carrington


Cliff Partlow/staff photographer

the pin Dec. 21 in Vero Beach. The Fighting Indians won the match.


said. "He's doing really
well. He has a winning
record.
"He's been to several
camps with us. He's con-
tinuing to improve. I
expect him to go to the
state tournament this
year."
Durran also picked up a
win against Martin County,
defeating Nick Amiko.
Shawn Ginn has been
building a solid career
since his freshman year.
Competing at 130, he has
excelled during his junior
campaign.


A Name You Can Trust!
Since 1979


fTEPANE'S


"He's doing really good
this season," Carrington
said. "He has only two loss-
es. Both of those were
against pretty tough kids.
"Those were just by
points at the beginning of
the season. He should
make it to the state tourna-
ment without a problem."
In his second year on
varsity is Dan Pettus. The
junior has been turning
heads in the 152-pound
division.
"He made it to regionals'
last year," Carrington said.
"He's been steadily getting


better. He has a winning
record this year."
Another member of the
squad enjoying another
successful year with the
program is Ned Anofils. At
171, the sophomore is hav-
ing his second consecutive
winning season.
"He missed going to the
state tournament by a
match as a freshman," Car-
rington said. "He does
summer wrestling camps
and tournaments.
"He has only two losses
this year."
After helping the Fight-


ing Indians football team
to the playoffs, heavy-
weight Chris Marrone is
back for his junior cam-
paign.
Marrone dominated in
his first year with the
squad, rumbling his way to
a district title. During his
sophomore campaign, he
struggled with his grades,
keeping him off the mat for
the second half of the sea-
son.
This year, Marrone has
righted the ship, which is
unwelcome news for his

BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
VERO BEACH When
not: competing for Vero
Beach's cross country
team, Lauren Lapointe
can be found playing vio-
lin in the school's orches-
tra.
Her performance on the
field this season was
music to coach Ryan
Kelly's ears, as the fresh-
man helped lead the Indi-
ans to new heights.
"She really wants to
become good," Kelly said.
"She soaks in everything I
say as a coach. She's got
everything it takes to take
it to the next level.
"I think she'll turn into
the top runner in the
state."
If 2006 is any indication,
Lapointe is off and run-
ning. She was part of the
Vero Red team, joining
Julie Cupka and Ashley
Muller as they won the


-Vero Beach Relays.
At the South Fork Group
Meet, she placed fourth
individually with a time of
21:59, helping the Indians
to a team title.
Lapointe also finished
fourth at the Vero Beach
Invitational; just one sec-
ond behind Cupka as the
Indians again scored a
team win.
As the season pro-
gressed, so did Lapointe.
She took second place at
the District 3-4A meet
with a time of 20:06.00,
propelling Vero to its sec-
ond-consecutive runner-
up finish.
At the Region 2-4A meet,
she fell to sixth with a time
of 20:12.70, but still
helpedVero to the second-
place spot an improve-
ment over last year's
showing where the team
ended up fifth.
But it was at the Class 4A
meet where Lapointe
showed she has already


advanced beyond her
years. She finished 20th
with a time of 19:42.05 -
exceptional for a first-y ear
runner.
"She had the top fresh-
man performance at state
in Vero Beach High School
history," Kelly said. "We
never had a freshman
make the top 30.
"She's exceeded what
everyone else has done."
Even the 14-year-old
was stunned by her per-
formance.
"At first, I didn't really
know what to think,"
Lapointe said. "I didn't
think I was doing so amaz-
ing, but everyone else
seemed to think so.
"It was really exciting to
do so well when I didn't
expect it."
Lapointe's accomplish-
ments are even more sen-
sational considering she
only started seriously par.
ticipating in the sport a
few months ago.


"This is the first year I
picked it up," Lapointe
said. "I ran the summer
before freshman year.
"It was either swimming
or cross country. My mom
has been running
marathons so I chose run-
ning.
"It's worked out really
well."
Although Lapointe loves
the thrill of competition,
her toughest opponent is,,.
someone she knows inti-:
mately.
"I really like beating ,
myself," Lapointe said.
"Pushing myself to do the
best I can do."
The Vero Beach resident
has also benefited from/
the years of experience
that coach Kelly brings to
the table.
"He's a very good
coach," Lapointe said. "I
really like him. I can talk
to him about what's going

now, so I expect him to go
to the state tournament,"
Carrington said. "He had a
little rough start coming
out of football, not being in
wrestling shape, but he's
picked it up since then."
Many times a wrestler
must experience some
time on the mat before he
can produce at the varsity
level. So far this season,
the exception to that rule
has been freshman Alex
Bruno.
"He never wrestled a day
in his life," Carrington said.
"He's been thrown into the
varsity level and has won
some tough matches for
me.
"Usually, first-year
wrestlers I won't throw
them to the wolves, but he
can hold his own. He's
steadily getting better.

"He has a really good
work ethic. He hasn't let
me down with that."
Despite coming out of
the gates strong this year,
Carrington's squad had a
chance to truly prove
themselves in a highly
anticipated match against
Sebastian River on Dec. 20.
Taking place in Vero
Beach, the Indians showed
just how far they have
come from last season.
They took it to the Sharks,
earning a hard-fought 42-
34 victory.
With the win, the Indians
moved to 8-5 on the sea-
son and remained a per-
fect 3-0 at home. Carring-
ton knows, however, that
the key to maintaining the
team's intensity is more
time on the mat.
"We practice every day


after school," Carrington
said. "During the Christ-
mas break, we practice as
well."
Many of those practices
have been highlighted by
the participation of former
wrestlers at the school.
"Ex-wrestlers always
come in and help me out,"
Carrington said. "Being
200 pounds myself, I can't
go wrestle around on the
mat with someone who's
270.
"Ryan Firth, who was a
215-pounder here and now
who's up to 240, comes in
and helps (Chris) Marrone
a lot. That helps me out
tremendously.
"My room is always full
of ex-wrestlers from Vero
Beach High School. You
can't put a price on that."

From page D2


on.
"He's one of the best
coaches I ever had for a
sport. He really taught me
to push myself and be the
best I can be."
Lapointe has also
gained valuable insight
from the seasoned mem-
bers of the team.
"The older girls have
really helped me,"
Lapointe said. "They've
taught me how to cool
down and do all the other
things you need to do
when you run."
Though the cross coun-
try season is over,


Lapointe has continued
running, trying to hone
her skills. Recently, she
competed in the Fourth
Annual Vero Beach High
School XC Challenge.
The native of South
America didn't disap-
point, as she was the over-
all female winner top-
ping all comers with a
mark of 20:47.
"She's one of those spe-
cial kids you're lucky to be
around," Kelly said.
Born in Colombia,
Lapointe moved to New
York with her family for a
short time when she was


younger. She's lived in
Vero Beach for about
seven years and couldn't
be happier.
"I do remember the
snow," Lapointe said. "I
love the snow, but I really
love the beach.
"(Vero Beach) is so
small that you know
everybody."
While most of her time
is spent running,
Lapointe's other love is
the violin.
"I've been doing it since
the second or third
grade," Lapointe said. "It's
something I'm really into.


"I was in a little one
(orchestra) in eighth
grade. Now, to be in such
a really big one, it's nice.
"I think I'd like to be in
an orchestra when I'm
older too."
Her sentiments on
cross country are simi-
lar. where she hopes to
continue hitting all the
right notes.
"Closer to the end, I
felt I \was improving a
lot," Lapointe said. It
was a really big surprise.

Some good and bad predictions for the golfing New Year


A s we ring in the New
Year, I feel it would
yL only be fitting to
take a look into the crystal
ball and see what's in store
for us golfers in the


coming 12 months. As I
look at it now I see some
good and some bad. Let's
hope for more of the
former and less of the
latter.

Chrysler will jump into
the fray with a line of clubs
that brings back those not-
so-fond memories of its
old K-car line. I can hardly
wait to get my hands on
the new Aries Driver!
To continue its mimick-
ing of NASCAR, the PGA
Tour will begin driving
players around the course
in carts allowing them to
wave at the fans just prior
to teeing off on the first
hole. The head honchos in
Ponte Vedra promise not
to allow "Sign Boy" to be
/ one of the cart drivers.
There is, however, no
promise not to adorn the

stickers as possible.
At this September's
President's Cup, there will
be a big difference from
this past year's Ryder Cup.
The World Team will get to
spank the team of U.S.
players instead of a bunch
of loudly dressed Euro-
pean players.
Ernie Els, who just the
other day announced that
he was rededicating
himself to catching Tiger
Woods atop the World Golf
Rankings, will quickly find
out that talk is cheap. Els
has made similar state-
ments over the years and
has failed to back any of
them up with his play on
the course.
Speaking of Tiger Woods,
the striped one will find
Sunday morning at the
Master that he is to
become a father. The
nervousness that he
suddenly feels is more
than a field full of the
game's top players has ever
given him and he finally
folds on a Sunday at a
major. The resulting
collapse will be bigger
than the one Greg Norman
experienced some 10 years
prior, but the huge grin on
Tiger's face will convince
everyone that for perhaps
the first time in his life golf
will come second.
After passing Hank Aaron
on the all-time home run
list, Barry Bonds will
promptly retire from
baseball and join the PGA
Tour. Overconfidence will
cause him to forget about
the Tour's newly imple-
mented drug testing
program and fail his first
test. Baseball purists will
have mixed emotions
when it takes golf to finally
do what their sport could
or would not.
Taking note on how
popular the LPGA has
become in the past two
years with so many
beautiful and talented
women playing each week,
the PGA Tour decides to
play the "men can be sexy
too" card as well. Tour

studs Sergio Garcia,
Camilo Villegas, Adam
Scott and more will vie to
pose for the Tour's pin-up
calendar and to be fea-
tured in television ads.
Between Barry Bonds ever-
growing head and Tim
Herron's lumpy physique,
half the months and most
of the camera lens will
already be taken, leaving
some of the better looking
players on the outside
looking in.
Inexplicably, Jim Furyk
and Ben Crane will be
paired together early one
Thursday morning. The
resulting seven-hour
round from the pair backs
up the course so badly that
more than half the field
doesn't even begin their
round. Playing in the last
group to go off that day,
John Daly catches the pair
on the 14th fairway and
plays through, Unnoticed
by either as they continue
to take five minutes to line
up each shot and consult
their yardage books.
Michelle Wie, now a
professional golfer and
unable to play golf at.
Stanford, will beg for
exemptions to make the
bowling team, the volley-
ball team, the rowing
team, the field hockey
team, the debate team,
and more. When asked by
one coach why she doesn't
come to try outs, she
responds,
"What's that? You, like,
want me.to earn a spot?
You must be kidding! Like,,
seriously, where is my
jersey?"
I wouldn't run to Vegas to
drop money on my crystal
ball's accuracy. I think it's
only slightly more accurate
than my driver has been of
late.
Here's wishing that while
we all may not get what we'
want, may we all get what
we need. Happy NewYear!

Local resident knocks out perceptions


BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
VERO BEACH Before
James "Buddy" McGirt ever
stepped foot into a boxing
ring, there were those who
had already counted him
out.
"People said I couldn't
accomplish anything
because I was too small,"
McGirt said. "I had asthma
as well.
"I wanted to prove to
them, but to myself more
than anything that I could
do it."
After a successful career
that spanned 80 profes-
sional fights, the Vero
Beach resident did just
that, coming a long way
from that 60-pound kid


who couldn't find a helmet
the right size during his
days playing little league
football.
"(Football) that wasn't
for me," McGirt said.
"I had a cousin that
boxed. When I went to my
uncle's house that was all
they talked about."
McGirt walked into a
gym on his 12th birthday -
Jan. 17, 1976. Little over a
month later, he had his
first amateur fight.
"I fought a kid who was
16," McGirt said. "He had
already had four amateur
fights.
"They said it was going
to be an exhibition. I said,
'Everybody from the
neighborhood was there.
It's not going to be an exhi-

bition."
The fight ended in a
three-round draw, but
despite not coming out on
top, the sport won McGirt
over.
"Boxing is like a drug,"
McGirt said. "Once it gets
in your system, that's it.
"It's hard to kick."
After a stellar amateur
career, the native of Brent-
wood, N.Y. turned pro
while still in high school.
"I was 18 years old,"
McGirt said. "My father
had just died. My girlfriend
was pregnant.
"I needed some money."
On March 2, 1982,
McGirt entered the profes-
sional ranks, fighting Lam-
ont Haithcoach to a draw.
"He (Haithcoach) was 5-

0," McGirt said. I had this
little mouthpiece when I
played football."
McGirt's payday for the
fight was a whopping $200.
"I thought I was rich,"
McGirt said. "Especially in
high school."
McGirt scored his first
win two months later with
a third-round TKO of
Michael Palms in Atlantic
City.
That victory started an
impressive 28-match
undefeated streak that
lasted over four years.
"It was great, but it was-
n't easy," McGirt said. "It
was a great learning expe-
rience."
Along the way, he cap-
tured his first title, the
WBC Continental Americ-
as Light Welterweight
championship, with five-
round TKO of Sugar Boy
Nando just days before
Christmas in 1985.
"Having that champi-
onship, belt wrapped
around your waist is some-
thing you don't forget,"
McGirt said. "It's some-
thing they can't take away
from you."
McGirt suffered his first
defeat, a 10-round loss on
points to Frankie Warren in
July 1986.
Not to be deterred, he
came back refocused and
won nine bouts in a row,
Culminating in 12-round
TKO of Warren to win the
vacant IBF Light Welter-
weight title.
'After I lost that first
fight, it made me a better
fighter," McGirt said. "The


second time we fought was
on Valentine's Day in 1988.
I was determined to get my
credibility back.
"He was tough. In the
eighth round, both his eyes
were closed. He just kept
putting pressure and pres-
sure. He's one guy that I
didn't have to look for.
When the bell rang, I knew
he was coming right at me.
"It was great. The best
part was that we fought in
the same place as the first
fight, in his hometown,
just a different arena."
McGirt's reign would be
short-lived, however. After
a dominating first-round
knockout of Howard Davis,
Jr. in his first title defense,
McGirt would lose to the
belt to Meldrick Taylor in a
somewhat controversial
12-round TKO.
"I had a cut over my eye,"
McGirt said. "He was cut as
well. My manager stepped
in.
"He was winning the
fight, but let me finish on
my feet. He hadn't knocked
me out earlier and he was
not going to knock me
down late."

Striking it rich

After the setback, McGirt
was determined to again
make it to the top of the
mountain. He won 16
matches in a row to set up
a Las Vegas showdown
with Simon Brown for the
WBC Welterweight title.
Despite his previous suc-
cess, McGirt was a not a
heavy favorite coming into


the bout.
"I was a 10-1 underdog,"
McGirt said. "A lot of peo-
ple didn't give me a
chance."
Despite the odds being
heavily stacked against
him, McGirt had at least
one fan in his corner.
"I trained in Fort Pierce
for that fight," McGirt said.
"There was a guy watching
me train. He came there
every day. I told him if he
could make it to Las Vegas,
I would give him a hotel
room and a ticket.
"He called my manager
the night before and told
him he would be there
tomorrow.
"He came to my bed-
room and he had $12,000.
All his family had put the
money together. It was
their life savings.
"They bet it on me."
McGirt didn't disappoint
as he came away with a 12-
round unanimous deci-
sion.
"(The guy) He left with
$120,000," McGirt said. "I
felt I could beat anybody in
the world that night.
"It's like when Michael
Jordan scores 60. That was
my 160-point night. I
couldn't do anything
wrong that night.
"That night, nothing was
going to stop me."

Sucker punched

After several successful
title defenses, McGirt put
up the belt against Pernell

From page D6


Whitaker. He made a
valiant effort before losing
a 12-round unanimous
decision, despite unknow-
ingly fighting with a torn
rotator cuff."
"I was okayed (to fight),
but it wasn't okay to fight,"
McGirt said. "The doctor
only said I had inflamma-
tion. My manager was in
on it at the time. It was a
.big fight a million dollar
payday.
"Two days later, a guy
from HBO told me to go
see another doctor. I took
the old MRI's with me.
"The doctor looked at
them and said I had a torn
rotator cuff. He told me,
'They lied to you.'
"At that point in my
career, I could have signed
a nice deal with HBO.
Whitaker got the deal.
"I only lost by a point
with one wing."
With his career in doubt,
McGirt underwent surgery
to repair the damage.
"After I had the surgery,
,the doctor told me I could-
;n't fight anymore," McGirt
said. "My goal was to come
backk"
McGirt again proved the
'doubters wrong, getting
:back in the ring just six
'months after the opera-
'tion. He won a 10-round
,unanimous decision over
Nick Rupa in Atlantic City.
SFrom there, McGirt won
another four in a row,
,securing a title shot
against Whitaker.
S"After I was told that I
had g6t another title fight,
I sat in my dressing room
,and cried," McGirt said. I
got what I accomplished to
'do."


Unfortunately, the out-
come was the same as
Whitaker came away with
a 12-round unanimous
decision. After that, McGirt
fought for just over two
more years, hanging them
up after another unani-
mous decision loss to Dar-
ren Maciunski, this time in
10 rounds.
The fight took place on
Jan. 21, 1997, just one
month shy of the 21st
anniversary of his first box-
ing match. McGirt fin-
ished with a career record
of 73-6-1 with 48 knock-
outs.
Despite all he had
accomplished, his manag-
er's betrayal had soured
him on the sport he loved.
"After I got the title fight,
I didn't want to fight any-
more, McGirt said. I was
just going through the
motions.
"I worked so hard since
the age 12, if I had gotten
the proper treatment, I
would have been more
successful.
"I had a lawsuit against
the doctor. I gave my depo-
sition, but my manager
went against me. He was
with me for 15 years.
"I'll never forget the day
my lawyer called me and
said, 'I thought he was
your friend. He just buried
you.
"From that day on, it had
never been the same for
me. It was the icing on the
cake for me."

Teach the
children well

Despite ending his pro-


fessional career, the 42-
year old has become suc-
cessful training others to
obtain their boxing
dreams.
"Since my first day box-
ing, it's something I
always wanted to do,"
McGirt said. "I always
wanted to be a teacher.
"When I was fighting, I
was training amateurs. I
loved it. I love the fact
that I'm passing on
knowledge.
"It's something money
can't buy."
McGirt moved to Vero
Beach in 2000 with $5000
in his pocket and a dream
to open his own gym. He
started out training fight-
ers for promoter Don
King in Fort Pierce and
West Palm Beach.
From there, McGirt
moved on to train fight-
ers at the House of
Champions in Vero Beach
upon the approval of
owner Gus Curren.
"Gus was good to me,"
McGirt said. "He didn't
know me from a can of
paint. I trained fighters
there for two years."
McGirt opened his own
gym in Vero Beach in
2002. He has trained
champions like Antonio
Tarver and Mike Tyson to
up-and-coming super-
stars such as his son,
James McGirt Jr.
"I'm proud of him,"
McGirt said. "He still has
a long way to go. We
haven't scratched the sur-
face yet."
Part of what McGirt
hopes to instill in his
fighters is the lessons
learned from over 30

years in the sport.
"I try to make them all
understand," McGirt
said. "(In boxing), there's
no pension plan, no
retirement fund. You get
everything you can and
you keep it.
"I've been there so I
know.
"One day I had a mil-
lion dollars in my pocket,
then in a three-year peri-
od I had $2 in my pocket
- just being young and
stupid. Thinking it would
never end.
"One day I was buying a
car and the next day, they
were repossessing the
car.
"I've seen it all.
Through it all, McGirt
has maintained the faith
and strong will that first
prompted him to step
through the ropes.
"Everything happens
for a reason," McGirt
said. "I always had faith. I
always believed in God.
He puts you through tests
to see how you handle it.
"In Rocky Balboa,
Rocky said to his son, it's
not how hard you can hit,
it's how hard of a hit you
can take and come back.
"I'm happy to be where
I'm at right now."

FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

FORT PIERCE -AVero
Beach physician has been
selected to lead the new
Florida State University
College of Medicine region-
al campus in Fort Pierce.
Dr. Randall Bertolette, a
Vero Beach pediatrician
since 1979, will be the
regional dean.
The campus will open in
July 2007. Eventually it will
be home to 20 third- and
fourth-year medical
students, who will complete
clinical education require-
ments at area hospitals and
medical facilities.
"We are fortunate to have
a newregional-campus
dean, who has been active
in medical education, and
who also has strong,
longstanding relationships
within the local medical
communities in which he
will serve," said Dr. J. Ocie
Harris, dean of the FSU
College of Medicine.
.Dr. Bertolette, 58, a former


president of the Indian River
County Medical Society and
current Florida Medical
Association board member,

He has been in private
practice since 1991 inVero
Beach and has served as the
senior staff pediatrician for
the Florida Child Protection
Team as a certified expert
with the Florida Attorney
General's office of victims'
assistance.
"I've always been interest-
ed in teaching and always
thought about going into
academic medicine, all the
way back to when I was
doing my residency," Dr.
Bertolette said. "This is a
great opportunity for me to
fulfill that dream. I was
interested in being involved
right from the beginning.
I'm looking forward to
working with FSU's future
physicians."
The regional dean will
begin work on a part-time
basis on Jan. 2.
