VERO BEACH Working
hard in Indian River County
since 1992, the organization
celebrated its 150th house with
a wall raising ceremony.
This was the first home that
the organization built with
funds from the Habitat Home
Center.
Habitat Home Center is the
organization's resale fundrais-


ing facility.
"We look forward to provid-
ing funds for more people who
need homes," said Tina
Bridges, Home center store
manager.
Not only was this a special
day for the organization, but
for the homeowner Shakedra
Mortimer.
"This is a dream to own an
affordable home. I wanted a
place for my kids to grow up
and feel safe," Ms. Mortimer


Thompson

Elementary will

become magnet

school by fall


BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
VERO BEACH To
reverse dropping enroll-
ment and overhaul its lack-
luster public image,
Thompson Elementarywill
become a magnet school
this fall.
In a 4-1 vote on Jan. 9, the
Indian River County
School Board transformed
Thompson into the coun-
ty's fourth magnet school.
"I'm elated," Thompson
assistant principal Diane
Hardy said after the vote.
"I'm looking forward to get-
ting to work."
Mrs. Hardy spearheaded
the magnet effort with
Thompson principal One-
sha McIntosh.
A magnet school is a
public school that focuses
on a theme or particular
area of study and usually
requires more parental
involvement than a regular
public school.
When Thompson opens
its doors for the next school


year, teachers will unite
under the banner of expe-
ditionary learning, which
focuses on research, group
projects and character
education.
"It's research-based, it's
not something out of thin
air," Ms. McIntosh told
board members at a pre-
meeting workshop.
The conversion will cost
the district about $50,000
for supplies and teacher
training.
The school's current stu-
dents will be guaranteed a
spot at the magnet school if
their parents complete an
application.
Remaining students will
be selected by lottery, with
students living south of
Fourth Street taking priori-
ty in the first round. All
other applications will be
weighed in the second
round.
By becoming a magnet
school, Thompson will also
avoid restructuring for fail-

Ms. Mortimer is the single
mother of three girls, Khrys-

Council race as

Solari bows out
BY WARREN KAGARISE.
Staffwriter
VERO BEACH City Council member
Debra Fromang and two other candi-
dates will compete for two open council
seats in the March election, but council
member Bob Solari will not seek another
term.
In her re-election attempt, Mrs. Fro-
mang, 56, will face newcomer William
Fish, 66, and Brian Heady, 59, who has
unsuccessfully sought the post in the
past.
Election Day is March 13.
For their name to appear on the ballot,
each candidate had to file election
papers with the city clerk by 5 p.m. on
Jan. 12.
The three candidates paid the $98 filing
fee to run for one of the two seats on the
five-member council.
The election is nonpartisan, and the
seats are at-large, meaning that all regis-

For its float in the annual Indian River County Martin Luther King Jr. Day Parade,
Head Start emphasized unity with its painted handprints and oversized globe. The
parade, which lasted about 90 minutes, began on 37th Street in Vero Beach and
ended at Gifford Park.


Parade honors King's legacy,

Indian River's progress


BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
GIFFORD Hours
before the parade in his
honor inched down Mar-
tin Luther King Jr. Boule-
vard, hundreds of specta-
tors lined the streets of
this community.
Black and white, rich
and poor, the people who


turned out on the muggy
morning of Jan. 15 to
honor Dr. King's legacy
formed an eclectic group.
Some were bikers clad
in black leather and
perched atop rumbling
Harleys. Others were
schoolchildren wearing
bright T-shirts decorated
with portraits of Dr. King.
When the parade turned


north on 43rd Avenue, the
Sebastian River High
School Marching Sharks
and the Vero Beach High
School Fighting Indians
Marching Band filed past.
"Each year, it gets bet-
ter," Joyce Pride of Gifford
said as she watched from
the grass.

"To me, today means the

allowed," Ms. Pride contin-
ued. "Of course, we're not
all unified, but we're try-
ing."
Dr. King, who was assas-
sinated in 1968 in Mem-
phis, Tenn., would have
turned 78 on Jan. 15.
Around Indian River Coun-
ty, schools and most
municipal offices were
closed that day.
The parade, which began
inching westward down
37th Street at 10 a.m.,
reached Gifford Park about
90 minutes later, arriving in

a blaze of sirens and the
rat-a-tat-tat of marching
bands.
Community leader Fred-
die Woolfork, puffing into
his trombone, and the five
members of the School
Board, dressed in matching
red polo shirts, walked the
three-mile-long route.
"It's an opportunity for
America to see what unity
can do," Mr. Woolfork said
afterward, as he rested for a
moment near the Don's Just
Fish sandwich stand.
At Gifford Park, the
parade's terminus, the smell
of grilling meat filled the air
while children squealed on
the swings and teenage
boys played basketball.
"I always look forward to
this day," Mr. Woolfork said.
"This is such a unified,
diverse group."
* Margarett Kelly, a kinder-
garfen teacher at Vero
Beach Elementary School,
spent Monday morning
behind the wheel of the
Ford truck that towed her
school's float.
"This day; to me, means
seeing everyone come
together to socialize and


fraternize for a man who
gave his life for equality,"
Ms. Kelly said.
She recalled her child-
hood, when she attended
all-black Gifford Elemen-
tary until she entered third
grade, when Indian River
desegregated its schools
and she moved on to a
newly integrated Citrus Ele-
mentary.
Sandra Crumpler, a first
grade teacher at Dodger-
town Elementary, also grew
up during the era of segre-
gation and spent her first
years of school in all-black
classrooms.
"I've always tried to teach
the dream to my kids," she
said, referring to Dr. King's
soaring 1963 "I Have a
Dream" speech in which he
called for racial equality
from the steps of the Lin-
coln Memorial.
On Monday, Ms. Crum-
pler led a group of Dodger-
town students down the
parade route to Gifford
Park.
"We learned that he's a
brave man and that he had
a dream," said Madison
Schabilion, a Dodgertown

third-grader.
Martin Luther King Jr.
Day is one of only four fed-
eral holidays commemorat-
ing an individual, and the
only one honoring a black
American.
It is observed on the third
Monday in January.
In November 1983, after a
contentious battle in Con-
gress, President Ronald
Reagan signed the bill cre-
ating the holiday. It was first
celebrated.in 1986.
"I am in awe of what Mar-
tin Luther King Jr. believed,"
School Board member
Lenora Quimby said. "For
what he wanted to in terms
of peace and equality, he
was ahead of his.time."
After the parade, School
Board Chairwoman Carol
Johnson praised her fellow
board members for march-
ing and reflected on Dr.
King's historic role.
"He's very significant in
the history of our country
and the history of our cul-
ture," she said.
Her colleague, Ann
Reuter, who grew up in
racially divided Havana,
outside of Jacksonville, said
the segregation of her child-
hood must not be allowed
to creep back into exis-
tence.
Mrs. Reuter, whose grad-
uate thesis at Harvard Uni-
versity focused on the after-
math of the Civil War, said
the gains made during
Reconstruction had been
all but erased by the 1950s.
"I don't want to see it go
backward," she said.

Deputies investigating shooting that killed
one horse, injured another
Deputies with Indian River County Sheriff's Office
Ranch and Grove Unit are investigating a shooting
that killed one horse and wounded a second.
The horses were shot off the 6500 block of 69th
Street on Jan. 11. Deputies believe the shooting
occurred between midnight and 8 a.m.
The surviving horse is in stable condition.
Woody, a 16-year-old Thoroughbred polo pony,
died at the scene. The second, wounded horse,
Sonny is a 14-year-old Registered Paint.
Woody was valued at about $65,000, according to
a sheriff's office press release.
Information leading to an arrest and conviction in
the case could be worth up to a $1,000 the reward
provided by Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers. A sec-
ond, $2,500 award is being offered from the
Humane Society of the United States.
The Sonny and Woody Reward Fund has been set
up at Wachovia Bank, and donations are being
accepted at any branch. As of Jan. 13, the fund con-
tained an additional $1,000.
Deputies are asking anyone with information ref-
erence about the incident to contact Deputy John
McNeal at (772) 569-6700 or Treasure Coast Crime
Stoppers at (800) 273-TIPS.

SBoard grants approval for 66th Avenue
middle school site, delays high school
At its first meeting of 2007, the Indian River Coun-
ty School Board, members approved construction
of a new middle school, but decided against build-
ing a south county high school.
In a 3-2 vote on Jan. 9, the board gave the green
light for construction of a new middle school on a
district-owned parcel off 66th Avenue.
Construction could begin as soon as the fall.
The board's vice chairwoman, Karen Disney-
Brombach, and Lenora Quimby cast the no votes.
"The site is not located where children live," Mrs.
Quimby said, adding that most of the new school's
students would have to be bussed from other parts
of the county.
Board member Ann Reuter, meanwhile, said that a
new middle school was necessary to alleviate
crowding at Sebastian River and Gifford Middle
Schools a sentiment shared by board chairwoman
Carol Johnson.
"We have schools behind schools," she said, refer-

GIFFORD Many com-
munity members celebrat-
ed on Sunday the legacy of
a man that changed the
status quo for African
Americans in the United
States.
On Jan.14 community
leaders and members
gathered in various loca-
tions in preparation for the
reenactment of Dr. Martin
Luther King Jr.'s civil rights
march.
Nearly 40 years after the
historic march a crowd
walked down Martin
Luther King Jr. Boulevard
while singing "We Shall
Over Come" accompanied
by the trumpet.
The walk was a mimic of
his civil rights march in
Washington, D.C., which
drew 250,000 people to the
Lincoln Memorial on Aug.
28,1963.
"As a result of his work
we have been able to par-.

Rev. Denny Hart, of Indian

The march ended at The
Historic Macedonia
Church where the Rev.
William Bradley of Friend-
ship Baptist Church deliv-
ered a powerful speech
acknowledging Martin
Luther King Jr.'s dream
stating, We are not there
yet."
This is the 24th Annual
celebration for the com-
munity march.
The event had a special
meaning for community
residents.
"This day represents the
desire to do my part in


keeping the dream alive. I
continue to stay in tune
with that." said Robert
Temple of Gifford.
Many see the event as
validation for there current
opportunities.
"Dr. King stands out
because he represents all
bounds. He had the ability
to reach out to all." the Rev.
Kyle Gibson said. ,His
courage and sacrifice
allows me to do what I do
today."
In his lifetime he

Ca
Is IT MINE ? o
I buy lots of jewelry from
the public. To do so I must
fill out a police report when
purchasing jewelry from
the public. We must ask
whose ring (or whatever
they are selling) it is. We do
this to determine whether it
is their property to sell or if
they have authorization to
sell it. And I frequently
hear something that. dis-
turbs me. One of them is
from ladies that have been
engaged but have since
broken off the engage-
ment. They have given the
engagement ring back. The
second thing I hear is that
the man brings the ring in
to sell and he tells me he
"took" it back.
Well here's the real deal.
If you receive an engage-
ment ring, it's yo0rs. You
can wear it, sell it, or do
anything you want with it.
It's yours. If he "takes" it
back without your authori-
zation, it is still yours and
you can take whatever
legal means you like to get
it back. Therefore if he tries
to sell it to me or any other
jeweler it is not his to sell.
This is straight from the
detective that is our repre-
sentative from the sheriff's
office.

School
From page Al


ing to make adequate yearly
progress on the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test.
Thompson, which has
about 400 students enrolled,
is a Title I school, meaning it
receives federal money for
students who qualify for free
or reduced-price meals.
It will lose its Title I status
when it becomes a magnet
school, but the district will
continue to receive the same
amount of Title I dollars.
The federal No Child Left
Behind Act requires Title I
schools to make adequate
yearly progress for five con-
secutive years, based on
FCAT scores.
Now that Thompson will
be converted into a magnet
school, Dodgertown Ele-
mentary is the only school


facing restructuring during
the upcoming school year.
Vero Beach and Fellsmere
elementary schools could
face restructuring in two
years.
Restructuring could mean
drastic changes such as an
entirely new staff or conver-
sion to a charter or magnet
school.
Fran Adams, the assistant
superintendent for curricu-
lum and instruction, said
the decision to make
Thompson a magnet school
would allow the district to
put more focus on improv-
ing Dodgertown.
"We have a history of suc-
cess with magnet schools,"
Mrs. Adams said at the
workshop before the board's
vote.
Dodgertown will not be


turned into a magnet
school, she added.
As of Jan. 10, there are 475
student applications for the
three existing magnet
schools, according to district
data.
At Thompson Magnet
School, each family will be
required to complete 10
hours of volunteer work.
Students will be required to
wear uniforms.
Ms. McIntosh and Mrs.
Hardy first presented their
plan to the board at a Dec. 8
workshop.
"This is a creative solution
to the problems they're hav-
ing there," said Karen Dis-
ney-Brombach, the board's
vice chairwoman, praising
Thompson's effort.
Lenora Quimby, the board
member who cast the dis-


senting vote, said the board
had the power to fixThomp-
son with more money, bet-
ter public relations and
altered zoning.
"I do not see this as a solu-
tion, but it will improve the
image," Mrs. Quimby said.
Schools can excel under
the statewide grading sys-
tem, but miss critical No
Child Left Behind bench-
marks.
Thompson earned a B
from the Florida Depart-
ment of Education in 2004
and 2005.
Though Thompson
received a passing grade
from the state for 2006, it
failed to meet federal crite-
ria or endear itself to many
parents whose children live
in the school's zone.
"There's a perception out


in the community that
Thompson is a school fami-
lies don't want to'go to," Sue
Curtis, the county's execu-
tive director of elementary
education, said at the morn-
ing workshop.
As a requirement of No
Child Left Behind, districts
must offer parents the
choice of sending their chil-
dren to different schools if
their child is zoned for a
school that does not make
adequate yearly progress. In
these cases, the district
must provide transporta-
tion.
During the last three
years, about 200 students
who were zoned for Thomp-
son chose to attend other
schools, said CharleneTardi,
the district's director of
alternative education.


Four parents of Thomp-
son students including
teacher Kim Slade praised
the school and spoke in
support of the magnet plan
at the board meeting.
"Even when we were a B
school, that perception
never changed," Mrs. Slade
said, referring to Thomp-
son's stigma.
Magnet school applica-
tions can be picked up at the
three existing magnet
schools or at the school dis-
trict office, 1990 25th St.
between 8 a.m. and 4:30
p.m. Parents whose stu-
dents are on the magnet
school waiting list and want
to be considered for
Thompson can update their
applications by calling
Camille Batory at (772) 564-

Cures for cancer: focus on causes

If there are no high-tech laboratory cures for cancer,
after years of costly research, why not focus on eliminat-
ing the modern-day conditions that are causing ever
increasing victims of cancer, such as smoking cigarettes,
spraying toxic pesticides on lawns and fruit trees, selling
denatured bread and other denatured foods, and selling
junk foods that are laced with synthetic colorings and
artificial fragrances.
People's bodies, including children's bodies, are tired of
being victimized by unhealthy modern conditions. Each
person wants to be healthy, with healthy, wholesome
foods and a healthy, wholesome environment. With the
New Year beginning, this is the right time to say "no" to
the many cause of cancer.
Cleaning up our human ways can eliminate the cancer
"plague" of the 20th and 21st centuries. Our ancestors got
rid of the bubonic plague by cleaning up their cities, and
subsequently ended the rat infestation that caused the
plague.

Government should be there
only for the basics

Now I've heard of everything: a "bicycle pedestrian
coordinator?!"
I wonder what other useless, senseless jobs the county
has us paying for. It seems the county commissioners
cannot spend our tax money fast enough. Their troughs
are overflowing from the recent run-up of property tax
assessments and their minuscule pullback in the military.
Will someone please inform them that the government
should be there only for the basics: police, schools and
roads?

Keeping something that is not theirs

I lost my beloved little pet, "Pebbles." I put up signs and I
put adds in the paper. I know somebody has her.
I find it horrible that someone could keep someone
else's dog, which means so much to them, and not return
it.
I want to know what kind of people -are out there that
can do such a horrible thing. It just breaks my heart that
people can be so cruel, keeping something that is not
theirs. I'm sick to my stomach that she is gone. I hope
whoever has her reads this and thinks twice when looking
at my baby, and I hope they return her to me.

Not our job to stop speeders

I would like to respond to a rant from a reader in your
Dec. 29 paper under the heading "Bad Driving."
The writer made a comment about a crossing guard
who "does nothing about the drivers as they speed
through the school zone and right past her".
I work as a crossing guard, and we are under the Sheriff's
Office. It is not our job to stop speeders. I have tried to
caution drivers to slow down and have been met with a
hand gestures, yelled and cursed at. We have been told
that if we see someone doing something illegal, we can
Sget the plate numbers and call it in. I would suggest that
; your writer do the same.
I have also seen people talking on their cell phones,
reading maps, looking at the newspaper and otherwise,
not paying attention to their driving.
As a crossing guard, my job is to make sure the children
get across the street, or railroad crossing, safely. If a
pedestrian needs help, I am there to assist them if I can.
To suggest that the crossing guard "just stands there and
does nothing," is totally unfair. We take our jobs seriously
and we ask the community for its help in making sure
everyone stays safe.
Thank for the opportunity to respond and I enjoy read-
ing your paper every week.

A solution to the war in Iraq

I think the best solution to the war in Iraq, is to get out of
there now. Pull all of our troops back into Kuwait, where


AL /r


they are friendly, and let Iraq kill each other in a civil war.
Then, we can go back in there when they're all gone.
That's my solution to the war.

Let's have some peace and quiet

Where is the surgeon general? He seems to be sleeping.
I bought a megaphone, made in China, with a warning
label, which said: "Amplification of the voice with this
megaphone can cause hearing loss and ear damage if
directed at a person at close range."
It also stated: "Children should only be allowed to use
this product when closely supervised by a responsible
adult."
My point is: When are we going to stop allowing these
boom boxes from driving through our neighborhoods
and shaking our homes and windows with the vibrations?
Also, where are the child abuse protection people when
3, 4, and 5:year old children are sitting in these cars while
they blast their boom boxes. Where are the Ear, Nose and
Throat doctors telling people that the vibrations can
cause irrevocable ear. damage?
I am in the medical profession and know how the ear is
damaged when stressed by loud vibrations.
Citizens need to ban together to get the police, depart-
ment to ticket these people and take away their boom
boxes, if necessary.
Let's have some peace and quiet.

Crossing guards are not traffic guards

This is in response to the rant about bad drivingJwould
like to comment about the duties of a crossing guard. A
crossing guard's duties are just what their name implies,
to guard the crossing and protect the children by getting
them across the street safely.
They are not traffic guards. The police are the ones who
control the speeding cars and, write tickets. The crossing
guards are doing a great job. Keep up the good work!

To the person who stole my
outgoing mail on Dec. 21

I want you to know what you took from me when you
stole the letters and cards from my mailbox on Dec. 21,
between 3:30 and 5 p.m.
Whether your act was a stupid prank or an attempt to
gain easy money, in either event you broke the law and
you caused me an undue amount of aggravation.
Throughout the day of Dec. 21, I was writing Christmas
cards to friends and relatives, some of whom I only corre-
spond with over the holidays.
Each card had a personalized note, a handwritten mes-
sage meant only for the recipient. There was an anniver-
sary card for my sister and brother-in-law, who have had
some difficulties this past year, and the card was specially
selected just for them.
And, I guess you really hit "paydirt" when you opened
the card for my newspaper delivery lady and discovered
the $20 gift card enclosed for her.
You should consider working as hard as she does in
order to gain extra money, instead of preying on others
and breaking the law.
Perhaps I would never have known of your theft had it
not been for our postal carrier, who alerted us that noth-
ing was in the mailbox even though the flag was up.
It is my understanding that law enforcement is close to
arresting you. I hope you will be appropriately punished,


but.I doubt that you will ever fully appreciate the actual
loss and anxiety your crime has wreaked on me during
this busy holiday season.

Older women using young eggs

In the news was an article about a 67-year old woman,
who gave birth to twins.
Lately, you hear in the news, but never in real life, about
older women giving birth in their 50s and 60s.
For ignorant reasons, people in the public seem to think
that because our life expectancy is longer, women's bio-
logical clocks are being prolonged.
No such luck. Those women having babies in their 50s
and 60s are using young eggs donated by young women.
According to the New England Journal of Medicine, and
"Advanced Maternal Age," by L.J. Heffner, the average age
a woman reaches menopause is 50, and the decline
begins at age 20.
When a woman reaches menopause, she no longer pro-
duces eggs. Hence, she can no longer conceive naturally.
By age 45, a woman's ability to conceive is less than 10
percent, and the spontaneous miscarriage rate is 95 per-
cent.

From the other side of the
customer service fence

Hello and thank you for taking the time to read my rant.
I am a'senior supervisor for a major online customer serv-
ice company.
My job in this company is to take calls from customers
who are irate about the service they have received.
As you could imagine, my coworkers and I have had our,
work cut out for us this past holiday season. The, most
frustrating part of this job is the customers' inability or
lack of interest to read the terms and agreements of the
Web sites they are ordering from. This includes any and
all promotional Terms provided on the Web sites. Web
sites do not hide these terms, and as a case of law we are
obligated to provide these terms in a place that can be
easily accessed and written in a way that is easily under-
stood.
The most common rebuttal I get from customers is,
"Well I don't have time to read all that stuff."
When you are spending your hard-earied money, I
strongly suggest you start making the time to read a Web
sites' terms before you shop online. Once you press that
"submit" button, you have just electronically signed a
legal document stating that you agree to everything the
terms and agreements stated.
Educated consumers always do their homework.
Secondly, I would like to address the way the online
customer service agents are treated as a whole. The
amount of abuse my agents and my co-workers take is
beyond anything a decent human being should have to
deal with.
We are cursed at, threatened and spoken to in such a
way that we often wonder if there are any decent people
left in the world. I cannot speak for every customer serv-
ice agent but as for my team, we do our best to serve the
public in anyway we can.
However, we do not come equipped with magic wands or
little leprechauns who will fulfill ever wish and whim a cus-
tomer may have.
This society is programmed with a gross sense of entitle-
ment. Society thinks that since they spent the money, they

Mr. Walsh, whose show is
one of the longest running
on television, is a longtime
advocate of laws to protect
children from crime. His
advocacy stems from the
1981 murder of his 6-year-

kidnapped from a Sears in
Hollywood, Fla.
Since 1988, Mr. Walsh
has hosted "America's Most
Wanted" on Fox. The hour-

enacts crimes and encour-
ages viewers to call in tips,
has led to the arrest of
more than 900 fugitives.

ring to portable class-
rooms at Sebastian River
Middle School.
In a later 4-1 vote, the
board postponed plans
to build a south county
high school.
Mrs. Quimby, who cast
the dissenting vote,
argued that the only way
to improve the county's
existing high schools was
to "build a new one in the
south county.
Both Vero Beach and
Sebastian River high
schools earned C grades
from the Florida Depart-
ment of Education last
year.
In 2006, the board
decided to move forward
on a south county high
school. Since then, three
new .board members
have been elected.
"Our policy will drive
building rather than
building drive policy,"
Mrs. Disney-Brombach
said. "Because high
schools are so expensive
we should not gamble on
this."

City could reopen
Dodgertown golf
course
VERO BEACH The
abandoned nine-hole
golf course at Dodger-
town, unused since the
city purchased the prop-
erty in 2005, could once
again host putts and chip
shots.
At a special meeting on
Jan. 10, the City Council
instructed City Manager
Jim Gabbard to research
reopening the 32-acre
course.
The course, closed
since 2003, was shut
down because of poor
attendance and sinking
revenue.
In November 2005, the
council bought the golf
course for $8.1 million
from Dodgertown Ven-
tures LLLP, a partnership
between the Los Angeles

Company builds strong


screen enclosures


BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer

PORT ST. LUCIE -
When Jack Foley and his
sister, Marianne Ball, start-
ed their screen enclosure
business, they wanted to
make sure their structures
remain standing after a
major hurricane.
To do that, their opera-
tions manager, Lane Atkin-
son, created reinforced
brackets and joints for all
their structures.
"We focus on building
things that can withstand
higher wind forces than
are generally accepted,"
Mr. Foley said. "We have
an innovative, approach,
with a high degree of quali-
ty control, which focuses
on key connections within
the enclosure."
Aries Metals, the compa-
ny Mrs. Ball and Mr. Foley
opened in September, con-
structs and installs pool
and patio enclosures,
Florida rooms, fences,
gates and hurricane shut-
ters. They use Admiral
Sunrooms, of Glendora,
Calif., for their product
supplier.
The company is licensed
and insured.
Mr. Foley, who has been
in the construction indus-
try for yearsboth in Florida
and New York, decided to
start his own business to
give residents another
choice for enclosures.
"I saw an opportunity to
offer better service to the
consumer," Mr. Foley said.
"We take ownership in our
work."
The company does this
with reinforced aluminum


structures that are guaran-
teed to withstand winds of
up to 150 mph for the first
year.
They also cut pieces of
material at the shop using
measurements from the
house, which cuts down on
installation and cleanup
time, Mr. Foley said.
"As we build our busi-
ness in our vision, we tar-
get people who think the
way we do, that is people
looking for quality enclo-
sures that last," he said.
Aries Metals officially
opened in St. Lucie West
on Sept. 1, with four peo-
ple working for the compa-
ny. They have since added
staff, bringing the total to
nine employees. In addi-
tion, family pitches in to
help get the business
going, Mrs. Ball said.
Mr. Foley has been plan-
ning the business for two
years, and while waiting
for office space, they took
business courses so they
could "do it right the first
time."
"We want to be in busi-
ness for quite a while,"
Mrs. Ball added.
Since Mr. Foley is a
licensed aluminum con-
tractor, course work and
testing for his license and
certification was required.
But Mr. Foley's education
didn't end there. He said he
is constantly taking cours-
es to keep his skills sharp.
Aires Metals is a member
of all the chamber of com-
merces on the Treasure
Coast and in Palm Beach
County. They also belong
to the Aluminum Associa-
tion of Florida.
Mrs. Ball and Mr. Foley
said they plan to expand


within the next five years.
"We would like to have a
few more locations, and be
recognized as the premiere
business for anyone who
needs what we have to
offer," Mr. Foley said.


Aries Metals is located at
645 N.W Enterprise Drive,
Suite 102, in Port St. Lucie.

Cliff Partlow/staff photographer
Humorist Dave Barry, center, chats with Rebecca Ullman, from left, Mary Ullman, and
Irwin Sadetsky, a member of the Emerson Center's board of directors, Saturday after-
noon. Mr. Barry was in Vero Beach as part of the Emerson Center's Celebrated Speakers


Series.

Barry
From page Al
met of hair, spoke on Jan. 13,
opening his hour-long talk
with a few notes about life in
Miami, his adopted home-
town and the city that
served as his launch pad.
"I moved there in 1986,"
he said. "From the United
States."
When, at the .end of his
"lecture," Mr. Barry pre-
pared to take questions
from the 650 members of
the audience, he wrenched
the lamp loose from the
podium to shine it into
spectators' eyes.
Mr. Barry fumbled, trying
to jam the lamp back into


place, but it proved uncoop-
erative. In the end, he
shoved it inside the podium
- still shining as the audi-
ence roared, big, deep guf-
faws echoing across the
auditorium.
With his weekly Miami
Herald column which Mr.
Barry relinquished in 2005 -
he became famous for his
fascination with the irrever-
ent toilets, explosions, etc.
and his everyman take on
politics.
He waded into his speech
with familiar topics: Miami's
notorious traffic "It's the
only place I've lived where
the driver's manual shows
you how to give the finger" -
the 2000 ballot recount -
"When the rest of the world
saw our official state motto:
Florida, you can't spell it
without duh" and relent-
less tropical weather hur-
ricane season, as Mr. Barry
put it, "runs from June to the
following June."
For Mr. Barry, South
Florida has been a center-
piece of his Pulitzer Prize-
winning newspaper col-
unn, 25 books and the
short-lived sitcom based on
hi~ orks.
"Funny things happen
there all the time," he said.
Then, in his pseudo-seri-
ous way, he sought to dispel
the stereotype that South
Florida is violent and
tufriendly, a melting pot
boiled over.
"There's a stereotype of
Vero Beach that it's nothing
but old white people here,"
Mr. Barry said. "Look
around this room and you'll
see that's not true."
The audience, filled with
ladies who lunch and men
with pastel sweaters draped
on their shoulders, laughed
along.


Then Mr. Barry recounted
the day in 1992 when he
spent a day "lurking"
behind Barbara Bush, join-
ing the hardened political
reporters of the campaign
press corps.
At the end of the day, he
found himself wedged next
to the first lady for a group
photo.
"I shop at the same super-
market as your son, Jeb," Mr.
Barry told her.
Mrs. Bush, campaigning
for her husband's re-elec-
tion, was not interested in
his-story about the Publix on
South Dixie Highway but
she was gracious.
"Her response was, 'Well,
who gives a s--?'" he said.
"She said it, not with her
mouth, but with her eyes."
Mr. Barry's feud with
North Dakota stemmed
from his column about the
desolate state's now-aban-
doned plan to change its
name to Dakota in an
attempt to lure new resi-
dents.
"If you go there, they'll
pull you over and say, 'Hey,
do you want to be in the leg-
islature?'" he said.
SNorth Dakotans respond-
ed with some High Plains
hospitality: They invited Mr.
Barry to Grand Forks in
January to dedicate a
sewage. substation in his
honor.
As Mr. Barry tells it, he
stood outside in the 30-
below weather, frigidly lis-
tening to dignitaries speak
before he unveiled the sign
bearing his name.
"I tear off the paper and all
I hear is thwap thwap thwap
- the sound of people
applauding in mittens," he
said.

Mr. Appliance on Entrepreneur


magazine's Franchise 500 ist


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS


VERO BEACH Entrepreneur
magazine named Mr..Appliance, a
full-service appliance service and
repair company, to its 2007 Franchise
500 list.
Entrepreneur's Franchise 500 list is
known as the most reliable and com-


prehensive list of franchises. The
magazine bases its rankings on
financial strength, stability, growth
rate, and size of the system.
Mr. Appliance ranked No. 229 on
the overall list, No. 62 among home-
based franchises, and No. 1 in the
appliance repair category.
"It's an honor to be included on the


list," said Doug Rogers, president of
Mr. Appliance. "Our success depends
on the hard work of our franchise
owners. This achievement is a direct
reflection of their dedication to supe-
rior customer service," he said.
This is the fifth consecutive year
that Mr. Appliance has been named
to the Franchise 500.


Barry
From page Alo


Next year, Mr. Barry will
head back to the Midwest,
trudging through Iowa to
skewer the 2008 presidential
contest and generate sup-
port for his own White
House bid.
"I agree with you. On
everything," he said. "And if
you change your mind, let
me know."
The armchair candidate
does, however, have one
plank of his platform set: "I
am in favor of the death
penalty for the inventor of
low-flow toilets."
After his speech ended at
5 p.m., Mr. Barry held court
at a private reception where
guests sipped wine and
waiters circled, holding
trays of canapes and pink
shrimp.
Another 700 people were
expected for his 8 p.m. talk.
Don Croteau, the chair-
man of the center's Cele-
brated Speakers Series,


helped bring Mr. Barry to
Vero Beach.
"Well, it was very serious,
obviously," Mr. Croteau
deadpanned. "He's a very
articulate, very humorous
man."
For Bill Frey, director of
the speakers series, Mr.
Barry provided a light note
in a season that will feature
heavy hitters from acade-
mia, finance and journal-
ism.
"I thought it was not only
funny because everybody
knows he's funny but
when I was backstage and I
looked out, everybody was
laughing from their bellies,"
Mr. Frey said.
"He's this modern time's
Mark Twain," Mr. Frey
added.
During his speech, Mr.
Barry needled his friend,
Carl Hiaasen, a Miami Her-
ald colleague and a new
Vero Beach resident: "He's


in your community now. I'd
be very nervous if I were
you."
Karl Steene, the director
of marketing for Indian
River National Bank and a
former Miami resident, said
being a Floridian means he
has a certain appreciation
for Mr. Barry's writing.
"He and Carl Hiaasen
both are real gems," Mr.
Steene said. "And, living in
Florida, a lot of what they
write is inside humor."
Indian River National
Bank is the presenting
sponsor of the Emerson
Center's Celebrated Speak-
ers Series.
Conservative columnist
George Will, the second
speaker in the series, will
appear on Feb. 9.
"I've used a lot of his
material tonight," the
humorist said, referring to
Mr. Will as he concluded his
speech. "Just so you know,


he broke this lamp."

FORMER HALE GROVES MANAGER OPENS CITRUS STORE


SEBASTIAN- Three months ago
Eric Peterson was the assistant
manager at the well-known Hale
Groves citrus store before the busi-
ness store closed it's doors in June.
The native NewYorker admits he
knew little about the citrus busi-
ness prior to working at Hale
Groves.
"Everything I know about citrus I
learned there," Mr. Peterson said.
Five months later, Mr. Peterson
is the owner of Sunquenchers, a
citrus and ice cream store.
The store appears reminiscent of
the old Hale Groves store. Mr.
Peterson bought the old furniture,
cash registers and duplicated the
supplies.
"I wanted customers to feel at
home," Mr. Peterson said.
Last week the grad opening for
Sunquenchers was held.
Customers and ambassadors from
the Sebastian Chamber of
Commerce joined to celebrate the
future success of the citrus retail
business.
"This is a chance to support local
.industry by purchasing local fruit
and juice," said Gayle Gilmore,
vice president of Wilmington
Trust.
Non-pasteurized orange and
grapefruit juice from Lambeth
Groves inVero Beach can be found
at the store along with an assort-
ment of navel oranges and ruby
red grapefruit baskets, grocery
items, marmalades and fancy jel-
lies. The store would not maintain
its splendor without the presence
of ice cream.
Lucky visitors in attendance at
the grand opening celebration
received a variety of ice cream
samples including spaghetti ice
cream.


It is ice cream shaped like
spaghetti and meatballs covered
with strawberry sauce with top-
ping choices that include grated
almonds, coconut or chocolate.
Those serve as the cheese.
This is a big hit with kids," said
Kimberly Martin, assistant manag-
er.
For individuals who think that
they can't enjoy ice cream with the
sugar, Sunquenchers offers sugar-
free ice cream in flavors like moose
tracks, butter pecan and vanilla
fudge. Sugar-free toppings are
also available.
The citrus store brings people
from far and wide. The California
family of Chantelle and Mike
Brown and baby, Macy, stopped by
for the orange juice, among other
items, while in the area.
"We saw the-sign for fresh orange
juice and fruit so we decided to
grab some for our trip back," said
Mrs. Brown, of Lake Tahoe, Calif.
More visitors from all around are
what Mr. Peterson expects for the
future.
"We hope we can become a place
to stop while tourists enjoy their
vacation destination in Florida.
Ten new stores in surrounding
communities is what lies ahead for
the future of Sunquenchers," Mr.
Peterson said.
Fresh Fudge made on-site!



Sunquenchers is located at 8860
North U.S. 1, Wabasso (Old KOA
Camp Grounds) 1/2 Mile North of
Route 510 and South of Hale
Groves 772-589-1515.

Discovering wine and vineyards in Provence


f your heart is warm
with happiness, you'll
need a glass of wine.
If sorrow chills your
heart, have two.
After centuries of
neglect, Avignon, "a
provincial city" in France,
is rediscovering its rich
ecological heritage.
In the 14th century, Pope
John XXII built a summer
chateau in the hills above
Avignon, and its ruins
remain the most recogniz-
able monument in the
famed wine village of
Chateauneuf-du-Pape,
today.
However, since the
popes' return to Rome in
the 15th century, the city
has concentrated on other
forms of culture. These
days, it is most celebrated
for its music, museums,
history and theater
festivals.
My fiance; James and I,
were visiting the Papal
Palace in Avignon where
we strolled through the
immense building that the
"exiled" Pope ClementV,
began constructing at the
beginning of the 14th
century. As our tour

proceeded, monastic
(monastery) simplicity
and austerity (strict
teachings) give way to
bright frescoes (hand
painted) and flamboyant
ceilings, signs of how the
initial papal asceticism
(strict practices) faded
over time. As we headed
toward the exit, we made
time to stop at the palace's
new wine shop, "The
Boutellerie."
James knows a lot about
American, Italian, German
and French wines, but
nothing of Rhone.

can be part of our cultural
attractions, as well.
The Boutellerie, which
opened in July 1999, is the
premier sign of this
renaissance. More than 40
winegrowers from the
nearby vineyards of
Chateauneuf-du-Pape and
Gigondas are represented.
This shop occupies a
grand setting, the former
papal artillery room. A
tasting of five wines is
offered for just $5. Direc-
tor Joachim Autard, a
former winegrower,
chatted with us and the
other guests in English
and French.
Outside the palace,
Avignon is a lively, cosmo-
politan town of about
100,000 people. A new,
high-speed TGV train line,
which travels at speeds
more than 186 mph,
provides frequent service
from the city of light to the
magnificent Mediter-
ranean Sea.
Thick medieval walls,
circle the old city. Pedestri-
ans have free run of many
lovingly maintained old
squares, closed to traffic,
but open to cafds, and in
the center of town, a
splendid double-decker
carousel.
During the July and
August theater festival,
these squares explode with
street productions of
puppets and marionettes,
dance, mime and cabaret,
as well as serious, Broad-
way-caliber presentations.
Historic sites include:
the Palace of the Popes,
the Pont d'Avignon(Pont
de St. Benezet), the opera,
the Hotel de Ville, various
churches and Cloitre St.
Louis and the Rocher des
Doms.
If you like the Smithson-


ian in Washington, D.C.,
then you'll love these
following museums: the
Musee en Images (more
than 1000 images of
Avignon), Musee du Petit
Palais (painting and
sculpture from the Middle
Ages to the Renaissance),
Musee Calvet and the
Musee Lapidaire (archeol-
ogy, prehistoric times,
paintings from the 16th to
the 20th centuries).
Last, but not least, some
activities to enjoy include
theater, opera, galleries,
horseback riding, tennis,
squash, ice skating and
boat rides on the Rhone
River.
A visit to Avignon is a
wonderful way to kick off a
wine tour of this part of
the Southern Rhone. From
downtown, it takes just 20
minutes to drive north to
Chateauneuf-du-Pape.
This picturesque village
sits above the Rhone River,
and the old castle is visible
in the distance.
You'll find lots of shops
owned by winegrowers
there, most offering only
their own production,
often at inflated prices. An
exception is Maison des
Vins, located on the main
street. It represents 60
different estates, and
tasting are free.
We were one of those
couples who didn't have
the time to visit lots of
different estates. We
wanted to have a place
where we could sample
and buy a wide choice of
Chateauneuf wines.
For visitors who had
more time, the tourist
office handed out clear
maps with directions to
the major estates, most of

which were open to the
public. Some, such as
Chateau La Nerthe and
Chateau Mont-Redon,
don't require reservations.
A few of the most presti-
gious names, such as
Chateau du Beaucastel and
Chateau Rayas, do and are
selective about who they
welcome.
However, with so many
others to see, this shouldn't
dampen anyone's enthusi-
asm.
From Chateauneuf, it
was only a short ride to the
region's other leading wine
village, Gigondas.
You will definitely need
to budget some time to
stroll the narrow, cobble
stone streets of the villages.
Rochegude offers views of
vineyards and distant
mountains.
Gigondas isn't the only
lovely town on the eastern


side of the Rhone River.
From its left bank there fan
out many delightful
Provencial wine towns:
Seguret, Cairanne, Rasteau,
Vacqueyras and
Rochegude.
They feature medieval
castles and churches and
sand- and rust-colored
houses with tile roofs,
surrounded by an ocean of
vineyards growing on flat
land and low hills.
In Grignan, in the Drome
department, medieval
streets run in circles
around a massive castle
that rises up on a hill. Stop
by the Village Provencial
Miniature, a re-creation of
turn-of-the-century
Provencial village life
involving more than 1,000
little figures posed in
vignettes (an un-bordered
picture, often a portrait,
that shades off into the


surrounding color at the
edges.)
In Coustellet, east of
Avignon, there's an inter-
esting museum devoted to
lavender.
After a day of sightseeing
and tasting, relax at one of
the fine restaurants or
hotels in the area, where
tourists are made to feel
welcome and comfortable
wherever they go.
If you want to take a dip
in a pool at sunset or dine
at the edge of a vineyard,
then this country is for
you. Or, perhaps you
would prefer to stay in
Avignon, which pumps
with energy by night as
locals and tourists stroll
the tree-lined streets and
people-watch from dozens
of outdoor cafes.
Once in Avignon, you
won't want to leave, and
the'town is too interesting

tomer service agents are
consumers too. We all have
had bad customer service
both in stores and online.
The only difference is we

and we file our complaints
accordingly.
My final word on this is
that customer service

In defense of


poor tippers
In defense of poor tippers,
there are a number of
points I'd like to make.
First, the upscale restau-
rants referred to charge
more than enough for
meals being served to be
paying a decent wage to
their waitresses and
bartenders. Expecting
patrons to subsidize the
low wages and contribute
to their tax-free income
with our after tax dollars is
a bit much.
I'm accustomed to leaving
a tip of up to 10 percent for
decent service. Sometimes
more if the service is
exceptional. But then again,
in Canada, nobody can be .
paid less than the mini-
mum wage, which I believe

tered voters who live within
city limits will be allowed to
cast ballots.
If there is a tie for a seat,
the council must schedule
a runoff election within 30
days.
In addition to deciding
the two council races, vot-
ers will determine whether
to amend the city charter to
make the municipal power
and wastewater treatment
plants protected lands. If
they do so, voter approval
would be needed before
the sites could be sold.
At the Jan. 12 Coffee with
the Council a monthly
breakfast with citizens and
community leaders Mrs.


Fromang described her
term.
"You do your homework,
you vote the way you think
you should," she said.
The other candidates and
Mr. Solari could not be
reache~for comment by
press'time.
Questions that have lin-
gered about the future of
the municipal power plant
since the last council elec-
tion in March 2006 will
resurface during this cam-
paign.
Vero Beach is a member
of the Florida Municipal
Power Agency, an Orlando-
based consortium that sup-
plies electricity to its mem-
ber cities.
The city's contract with
the organization will expire
on Dec. 31, 2009, but con-


cerns about electricity rates
and maintaining Vero
Beach's municipal power
plant have city utilities offi-
cials looking for alterna-
tives.
Mrs. Fromang said the
council must pass a resolu-
tion addressing the issue.
Aside from the power
debate, there will be other,
equally contentious issues
during this campaign.
In recent months, the city
has moved forward with
plans to extend sewer lines
to the barrier island, the
Los Angeles Dodgers have
announced they will end.
spring training here in
2009, and interest has
increased in redeveloping
downtown and Ocean
Drive.
Mayor Tom White,


addressing the Coffee with
the Council audience, told
citizens that the council
would soon tackle these
issues.
"2007 is going to be a big-
ger and stronger year," he
said.
Last March, voters re-
elected Mr. White and
Sabin Abell and elevated
newcomer Ken Daige to a
council post, ousting for-
mer mayor Mary Beth
McDonald in the process.
City Council members
are elected to two-year
terms. Once seated, the
new council elects the
mayor and vice mayor to
one-year terms.
Council members are
paid $900 per month; the
mayor is paid $1,125 per
month.

is $8.15 per hour.
Good workers and long
service usually counts for
higher than minimum
wages. Consequently, any
tips received are consid-
ered a bonus, not part of
their wages.
Your darts should be
aimed at the restaurateurs
and their scrooge tactics
rather than at your visiting
tourists, many of whom are
retirees on pensions with
limited incomes.

Comments from 'a
little old snowbird'

I would like to answer the
hundreds of letters that
have appeared in the last
six months about discour-
teous and poor drivers.
I am a little old snowbird
lady and probably rank in
that category. You rednecks
won't win points with me as
long as you drive as if you
learned the skill in Tokyo,
where they drive with their
horns.
Blowing your horn at me
won't make me run a red
light so you can hurry on
your way. If you are running
late, start earlier. Don't blow
your horn at me. You just
make me go slower.
Backin the 1930s, maybe
some of you remember that
some big car manufactur-
ers sold cars with horns
disconnected.
Isn't there some ordi-
nance that makes unneces-
sary horn-blowing illegal? If
there isn't, there should be.
I'd like to get out of your
was.
T'd like to leave the state.
It' not that great, but it's
what you made; not me.
Editor's Note: There have
not been "hundreds" of
letters published about
discourteous drivers in the
past six months.

Bid for socialized
medicine

America, wake up.
We need socialized


medicine in the United
States. Most of the world
has this type of coverage.
We are constantly being
fed that socialized medi-
cine is inferior and not
good for us. The problem
we are facing is that the
medical industry, and I
don't' call it a profession
anymore, because it isn't,
has become greedy beyond
words.
They have perpetrated
this type of system that we
currently have, where close
to 50 million Americans
have no insurance and
many others are underin-
sured. This would all be
eliminated if we turned to a
socialized system of
medicine.
It would be beneficial not
only for our citizens, but for
corporate American and
take the burden away from
them and put it where it
belongs.t on our hands,
because it can only get
worse and not better.

Beware of

9 Costly Mistakes

When Buying a Home


VERO BEACH Buying
a home is major invest-
ment no matter which way
you look at it. But for many
homebuyers, it's an even
more expensive process
than it needs to be because
many fall prey to at least a
few of many common and
costly mistakes which trap
them into either paying too
much for the home they
want, or losing their dream
home to another buyer or,
worse, buying the wrong
home for their needs.

SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well


It's tine


to put


out the


smoke
AThen I thought
about finally
VV writing a column
about the importance of
not smoking, I didn't
think there was anything
I could say that hadn't
been said before. I'was
wrong.
The surgeon general
recently announced that
breathing second-hand
smoke is dangerous,
particularly to children,
who are at risk for sudden
infant death syndrome,
bronchitis, pneumonia,
worsening asthma
attacks, poor lung growth
and ear infections.
Over time, it.can cause
lung cancer, even in non-
smokers. There is no safe
smoke, and if you smoke
in the car, in the house,
even with windows open,
you will expose your
loved ones to many of the
same dangers that you
are exposing yourself to.
I have never smoked, so
I know that people will
say that I can't under-
stand how hard it is to
stop. I do, know, however,
something about fighting
battles and not giving up.
In that spirit, I've
gathered information
about smoking cessation.
It's up to you and your
doctor to decide what's
best in your situation.
Philip Morris USA,
which knows quite a bit
about getting people to
start smoking, has put
together Quit Assist,
which they call an infor-
mation resource for
people who want to stop

Pour in 2 table-

you have a good idea, let me

We all know there are two
kinds of fat, saturated, which
usually comes from animals,
and unsaturated that comes
from things that grow. There
are two kinds of unsaturated
fat: monounsaturated (the oil
of choice, raises the good HDL
cholesterol as it lowers the bad
LDL) and polyunsaturated.
The choice should always be
possible if you select monoun-
saturated fats, such as extra
Virgin olive oil, Canola oil and
peanut oil. Avocados and most
nuts contain these fats. Polyun-
saturated fat is found in
vegetable oils such as sun-
flower, corn and soy. While all
are good for you, the mono is
the best choice. However, oil is

This is a NewYear, and I
believe that now is the time to
start getting smart. When I was
speaking with my friend, Nicki,
we hit on information that said
five to six small meals a day
were better than three large
meals for optimum health and
weight control.
Her question, "How do you do
that?" made me realize more
research was necessary.

Week of 01-19-07

Aries-March 21-April 19
Strong-willed people love to challenge and test
your strength. You know who you are and what
you want Inner strength allows you to bend a lit-
tle when needed without breaking. Being flexible
is far more important than being rigid. This is what
pulls you through every challenge in your quest for
victory over life. Your life is one of making wise
choices from the rich pool of ideas given on your
journey through life. You are a proven winner you


all fat and should be used
sparingly. While a little is
healthy a lot will pack on the
pounds.
Next week we will talk about
foods you should never eat.
Today I will talk about one
and I'm sure the information
will shock you.
Potpies have been a quick
easy staple in many homes. I
always knew they were high-
fat, but each person is served
one pie. Right? Pepperidge
Farm flaky crust potpie lists
total calories at 510 and satu-
rated fat at 9 grams. However,
that's for 1/2 a potpie. I ask you,
who eats only 1/2 of a potpie?
Read labels carefully and pay
attention to how many servings
are listed.
Today's column will give you
great choices for potpies in the
original sometimes high-fat
version and the low-fat version.
For the potpies, you can use
leftover chicken or turkey, a
whole chicken that has been
cooked and the meat picked off
the bones or boneless chicken

know.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
Your life will soon be coming into more complete
focus. Deep within lies your true destiny and direc-
tion. You have received visions this past year of
your direction. More are on the way. You have to
be relaxed in order to see them, as they come
from within. It is better to wait before taking action
until you have the sign that it is time to make
changes. This builds trust, patience and faith in the
higher power. It also lets you know if your best
ideas are blessed and want to grow. Are you lis-
tening?

Gemini-May 21-June 20
There is so much you want to do in the next few
months. You are like a racecar at the starting gate,
rewing up your engine. The first step to victory is
to have a solid goal. Next, keep feeding it so you
don't get sidetracked. Ask the universe to bless
and help you constantly. Ask for help from others
when needed. Stay physically and mentally fit.


Smart Shopping:
The Guru's
Money-saving
Tips

Freeze leftover chicken, turkey or
vegetables until you have enough
for a potpie. There's nothing like a
free dinner.


The Guru's
Special Hint
String celery by snapping the stalk
(rib) in half crosswise and pulling
down; watch the strings come off.


To Your Health
Most recipes can be altered by
substituting low-fat soups, dairy
products and cheeses without
changing the taste, giving you
healthy comfort foods.


Work from priorities. This formula will produce
wonderful results from every idea you bring into
reality. This earns you respect, love and honor and
abundance.

Cancer-June 21-July 22
The lighter touch works for you. Slowing down the
pace, taking a step back, a deep breath and relax-
ing when needed should be a major goal all. year,
not just the holidays. Even though your life is very
busy, give yourself a little treat every so often. You
have earned it. If you don't do these special things
for yourself that make you happy, you won't see it
coming from others very often. Why? They don't
know how or what to give you because you never
ask. It's OK to blow your own horn sometimes.

Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
When an idea doesn't work out, it either means
the timing is off, it doesn't have universal blessing
or it needs more refinement and focus. Harmony

about your computer is its
uncanny ability to remem-

what you've typed before.
Log into the Internet and

Then, after visiting other

Get support and
encouragement
Studies have shown that
the odds of successfully
kicking the habit increase
if you don't try to go it
alone.
Talk to friends, family
and co-workers about
why you want to stop. Ask
them to write encourag-
ing notes and stick them
all over places where you
usually smoke, above the
TV, on the dashboard,
near the coffeepot.

successful quitters, ask
them how they did it.
Get expert help. Speak to
your doctor or nurse, but
also look into quit-
smoking programs at
local hospitals. You can
try telephone or online
support as well.

Learn new skills
and behaviors
Plan ways to distract
yourself when the urge to
smoke hits: use nicotine
gum or lozenges, take a
walk, call a friend or do
something you enjoy.
Have other things
nearby to hold in your
hand or pop in your
mouth, such as carrot
sticks, fat-free popcorn or
sugarless gum and candy.
Look for activities that
don't include smoking to
rewards yourself. Perhaps
you can buy yourself

Scopes
From page B1
is the guiding principle that is
lacking. This means that you
should spend a little more
time communicating with
your partners or associates
involved in the project so that
everyone involved is moving
in a parallel direction toward
a goal. You will be successful
if you do this. Then celebrate
the victory, set a higher goal
and move forward again.

Virgo-Aug. 23-Sept. 22
This past year has been good,
if not challenging. Positive
change has happened. More
is on the way. The key is to
focus on the things that
make you happy. Refuse to
get stuck on unimportant
things that rob you of your
direction and energy. You are
at your best when you speak
from the heart. Everyone
around you may not always
like it, but they have to
respect it, if you stay strong
in your basic beliefs. Be
adaptable when needed and
you will have a very fruitful
year.

Libra-Sept. 23-Oct.22
You have grown a lot this
past year. Why? You have
faced every life challenge
with courage and determina-
tion. You are to be applauded
with your tenacity. Now you
are more centered, which is
the truest nature of a positive
Libra. You worry less. You are
happier. When you are happy,
it makes others happy,
because you are so much fun
to be around. Keep this
lighter touch and you will
continue to be an inspiration
to all who know you, with a
lot of respect coming your


way.

Scorpio-Oct 23-Nov. 21
When making decisions,
arrive at three possible con-
clusions. Do I take the safe
route, go down the middle of
the road or the risky route?
The risky route requires
courage, vision and change.
The middle route is trying to
please everybody. The safe
route is usually to do nothing
or wait. The risky route brings
the highest rewards. The mid-
dle survival and the safe
route usually loss. How much
courage do you have?

Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Your spirit remains strong.
Your heart is open and your
mind is alert. You are also
taking better care of your
body through a natural diet,
exercise and plenty of rest.
Just be sure to listen to your
instincts first and make deci-
sions that reflect your inner
guidance. This is a high form
of self-respect and insures
the same from family and
friends. This creates a simple,
quality lifestyle that will keep
you spirited, and help finish
all that you start in a timely
manner.
Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Never fear in letting go of the
past. Releasing old negative
habits, patterns or attitudes is
necessary if you want to keep
on moving forward. Keep a
strong focus on filling your
own emotional, physical and
spiritual needs first. True and
lasting happiness comes
from meeting your own spiri-
tual needs first. If you don't
do this, you won't allow any-
one else to do it consistently.
Creating true passion for life
is like filling up the gas tank
before starting the journey. It
gets you a lot further down
the road.


Aquarius-Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Your energy should be as
strong as you want or can
handle right now. The moon,
Mercury, Venus and Neptune
are all in Aquarius. Now is the
time to start new projects.
Your mind, heart and deep
creative urges are all in align-
ment. It doesn't get much
more blessed than this. Also,
next week the sun will be in
your sign. This is your time of
the year. Get plenty of rest
and eat more protein. The
extra energy will be needed
to bring things full circle. Fin-
ish what you start and you
will be favored with more
than your share of the
rewards.

Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
Upon arising, make the fol-
lowing affirmation out loud
each day and you will receive
awesome blessings from the
universe: "I listen to my
divine inner guidance and the
visions received always guide
me toward truth. I trust in the
universe to supply me all I
need to live, laugh and pros-
per at all times. I experience
life at its fullest and give
thanks back for all this good
and more continually coming
my way. Living a life of
unconditional love for all liv-
ing things gives me all I need
to be fulfilled in every way. I
am eternally grateful."

W ant to know what
it is? Are you
ready? Here it is.
Inside each of us is a
divine spiritual blueprint,
given at birth that is in
complete harmony with
the universe. Its passion is
to arise from its slumber
and with our human help,
give birth, blossom,
become fruitful and fulfill
our destiny. Sometimes
beyond our wildest
dreams.
There are two basic parts
of life, the outer nature
and the inner. The outer is
the physical, mental
world, ruled by the mind
and body consciousness.
The inner is ruled by the
heart and spirit and is the
pipeline to the universal
guidance and creative
power. The main thing

JAMES TUCKER
The Spirit Guide
that keeps us isolated from
this inner garden is a lack
of understanding and faith
in how to use it.
The mind is kind of like
the earth. The earth goes
from daylight to the
shadow of night. The
daytime is when the earth
is bathing in the life giving
warmth and enrichment
from the sun. The night-
time cools things off.
The daylight in humanity
is when we are listening to
and trusting our inner
guidance. The nighttime is
when we begin to question
or doubt our original
impressions and ideas.
The mind begins to let
doubt, fear, indecision,
anger, low energy, disease,
sadness or guilt take over
and talk us out of our best
ideas.
So we freeze and do
nothing or take action on
projects that cause pain,
hardship or struggle and
have no positive rewards
for the effort expended.
Have you ever been there?
Are you there now? There
is a far better way to live.
What is it? It is to surren-
der the outer directed life
to the inner and become
aware of the greatness
living in your own soul.
Then do something about
it. Stir your life up some so
complacency doesn't take


over. The inner process
starts with having the
energy, time, desire and
resources to turn your
dreams into realities. If
you lack the necessary
energy and passion, this is
fixable many times. It
starts with taking the trash
out of your mind, body
and heart.
It's like the first step in a
garden, which is to clear it
of the negativity accumu-
lated from the past. This
lightens things up. Then
you renew it by the tilling
and fertilizing. How long
has it been since you went
through your life, took an
inventory and began to
release the old things that
have been sapping your
energy and desire and
passion? How long has it
been since you made a
pledge to improve your
diet and health and yet go
right back to the same old
habits?
Good health and energy
are the direct effects of
eating a natural living food
diet, exercising the mus-
cles that need strengthen-
ing and then getting
enough good, restful sleep
without the use of comfort
foods, drugs or alcohol. If
humans were supposed to
smoke, the supreme
creator would probably
have put a smokestack in
our heads. Addictions and
compulsive behavior are
like weeds or crabgrass
that we have allowed to
take over our lives and
suck out our life force. You
can't just stop a negative
habit by saying "I'll never
do that again." Yes, you
will.
Changing doesn't come
until the desire goes away
and the temptation fades.
The only sure way to do
this is to feed the addic-
tion less and less each


time until the desire to
feed it weakens. Crabgrass
allowed to grow in the
lawn or garden is tough.
Once it takes root, you
can't pull it out by hand.
You have to dig it out to get
rid of it. Even that is hard.
So in human life, the
inner journey starts with
releasing, learning from,
blessing, forgiving the past
as needed to make room
for a new positive fruitful
life. If you are going on a
long journey you service
the car and fill up the gas
tank before starting out.
Most people take better
care of their cars than they
do their own body vehicle.
If you go with the above
plan, it can clearly be seen
how important it is to eat a
good healthy breakfast
and fill up the tank before
starting the days' journey.
Most of us eat large
dinners when we don't
need the extra energy. Eat
a good, healthy breakfast,
a moderate lunch and a
light dinner and your
weight will decrease, you
will sleep better and your
mind will be calmer and
more-relaxed. Let's carry
this idea one step further.
If you have an idea or
plan for a new project,
take care of your physical
health and energy needs.
Then make a solid plan.
Write it down-and affirm it
out loud every day. This is
planting and watering the
idea and turns it into a
living seed of desire in
your heart.
Next, surrender it to the
universe and wait. Believe
that you are worthy to
create a new and better
life. This creates faith, trust
and patience in the higher
power of the universe. If
you lack patience, it is

N ow that the holi-
days are over, it's
time to add some
color to your garden
landscape. Adding color to
your environment is
especially important now
that the holidays are over.
Color is also one of the
main elements that will
make your yard stand out.
One of the most practical
ways is through roses.
Roses are beautiful
flowers that symbolize
love and friendship.
Imagine yourself enter-
taining your friends in a
lovely alcove surrounded
by colorful flowers. Roses
are relatively easy to grow,
and are a great choice,
because they will often
grow where other flowers
won't because of Florida's
intense summer sun.
Roses can be successfully
planted in either contain-
ers or in the ground. In
either case, the plants
should be in well-drained
soil in a sunny location.
If you plant your treas-
ures in the ground, be sure
the soil drains well. Dig a
hole about 15-18 inches
wide and 18 inches deep.
Put a layer of gravel on the
bottom of the hole. This is
to allow drainage so water
drains away from the root
system. The same would

apply if you plant your
roses in a container.
The next step is to
prepare the soil you are
going to use to plant your
roses. You should use a
mix of a good quality
potting soil with around
half the mixture composed
of organic matter, such as
mulch or peat. You can
also use some bone meal
with your soil mixture.
Now, it's finally time to
plant your prize. Carefully
remove the plant from its
original container. Place

the plant in your prepared
hole, so the top of soil
layer on the plant is the
same level as the sur-
rounding soil. Fill the gap
underneath the plant with
your prepared soil mix-
ture.
Now, fill the gaps around
the remaining parts of the
plant and pack down
lightly. You are now ready
to water your newly
planted rose.
OK, you finally have your
roses planted and they are
bursting with color. Now
you need to do some
periodic maintenance to
maintain that beauty.
Since we live in such a
humid climate, certain
diseases, such as black
powdery mildew and black
spot can both be a com-
mon problem. Both
diseases are much easier
to control if you prevent
them from happening in
the first place.
Once established, both
are very difficult to get rid
of. Although there are
many products on the
market that are used for
disease control on roses,
Orthenex reigns as the
king. The product controls
not only diseases; but also
controls insect infestation
as well.
If you are interested in an
all-natural cure for fungus,
how about baking soda?
That's right, baking soda.
Plain ordinary baking soda
added at the rate of 3
teaspoons per gallon of
water acts as to prevent
fungus. You then can add a
small amount of mild dish
detergent to the mix to act
as a spreader sticker.
This will work as a
preventive measure, but
will not work well if an
infection is present. Be
sure not to make your mix
too strong, as damage to
your roses could result.
With all the remedies
that we have at our dispos-
al for controlling rose
problems, probably the
best way is prevention.
One way is to avoid
watering late in the day so
the leaves of the plant do
not stay wet all night. Also,

From page B2


fill out each field manual-
ly. You finish filling out the
form, place your order and
everything's fine. Now, as
you surf the Internet, you
come to another online
form. Perhaps you are
ordering flowers online or
booking travel arrange-
ments to Hawaii (Wouldn't
that be nice?). Notice that
this order form is asking
most, if not all, of the.
same questions as before.
As you begin to fill this
form out and enter your
first name in the first
name box, you notice your
name appears as soon as
you start typing. Same
thing happens when you
fill in your last name.
You'll notice that all of
the fields that you filled in
* before (as long as the
fields are named the same
as on the Web page where
you first typed) automati-
cally appear for you so you
can just click and press
tab to tab to the. next field;
It makes entering the
same information a snap
as long as it's turned on
and you're aware that it's
happening.
What about if you want
to clear the history list
(where your Web address-
es are stored) or what if
you've made.a mistake on
a form and now every time
you go to type that same
field the incorrect infor-
' mation comes up before
the correct data? What do
you do then?


Well, the controls for this
remarkable form remem-
bering feature can be
found in the Internet
options section of Internet
Explorer. Let's take a look,
shall we?
Launch Internet Explor-
er and then click the
"tools" pull-down menu.
Then click "Internet
options." The Internet
options page opens with
the "general" tab in front.
It's on this page where you
can set your start or
"home" page, or even
clear your cookies or
temporary files. Be cau-
tious here though. Delet-
ing your cookies can cause
some sites (such as
banking or portal sites) to
forget who you are and.
make you sign up all over
again.
Click the "clear history"
button and all the Web.
addresses in the address
bar as well as your last
three weeks or so in your
history list clears. Again,
use that with caution, as
it's nice to be able to find
someplace where you
were online a week or so
ago. Clear the history, and
you won't be able to do
that.
Next, let's click the
"content" tab. Here you
will find a section called
"personal information." It
is in this section where we
can turn on or off the auto
complete feature (in case
you want to disable it or


maybe you told it "no"
when it asked and you
now want to turn it on).
Click the "auto com-
plete" button and you are
presented with a number
of options: You can use
auto complete with Web
addresses, forms, user
names and passwords.
You can even tell it to ask
you if you want to save
passwords instead of
automatically saving
them for you, useful if
other people use your
computer.
Made a mistake on a
form field or two and
want to clear them out, so
you can have it come up
correctly? Click the "clear
forms" button and all of
the form fields that it has
remembered for you will
be forgotten.
Now, go back to that


pesky field that was
always coming up mis-
spelled and enter it right.
Of course, you'll have to
enter all of your other
form data, but that's easy
enough, just enter it as
you encounter it and the
computer will remember.
SNow, there are more
settings in the Internet
options window, but
we're just focusing on the
auto complete and
history settings today.
But don't stop there, take
a look around.
You may be surprised at
just how much control
over your browser you
actually have.

ACAI

Berry
Powerful Fruit
Pronounced Ah-sigh-EE,
these deep-purple berries
resemble small marbles and
have an unusual, taste of sweet
berry with just a hint of choco-
late.
The acai berry, a small,
almost perfectly round, dark-
purple fruit grows on the
Brazilian wild palmberry tree,
where natives have benefited
from its powerful antioxidants
for hundreds of years.
Nicholas Perricone, author of
The Perricone Promise and The
Perricone Prescription, recently
touted the benefits of acai on
the OprahWinfrey Show, nam-
ing it one of "Ten Superfoods
for Age-Defying Beauty."
Your best tool to combat the
aging process is antioxidant
support. Antioxidants are sub-
stances that neutralize free
radicals and stop their destruc-
tive assault on the cells of the
body. Antioxidants support the
body in many different ways:
Promote cardiovascular and
circulatory health, Control
excessive inflammation,
Maintain healthy cholesterol'
levels. Promote digestive sys-
tenm health, Boost the immune
system, Reduce the signs of
aging. Acai has raised the
antioxidant power of human
blood 10 to 25 percent.
Acai is a particularly potent
source of anthocyanins, the
powerful class of antioxidants
that helps prevent blood clots,
improves circulation, relaxes
blood vessels, prevents athero-
sclerosis and combats cancer.
Acai is one of the most potent
antioxidant fruits known to
humankind. Based on this fact
alone, acai should have a place
in any supplement program.
Healthway offers the acai
berry in both pill & liquid
form.

FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

Photographing six foot
high, fully decorated fiber-
glass sea turtle sculptures
is not an easy task, even for
the most seasoned of pho-
tographers. That is why
the Mental Health Associa-
tion of Indian River Coun-
ty turned to the Indian
River Photo Club to under-.
take the job.
The debut of the new
2007 fifteen turtles that
make up the 2007 Turtle-


Trax campaign will be
before the end of January.
The public will see these
newly artistically decorat-
ed turtles in print through-
out the local media, thanks
to the photo efforts of the
Photo Club.

munity's outpouring of

tures are being brought
back for a series of events
this year.
The new sea turtle sculp-
tures, sponsored by area
businesses and individuals
and matched with artists
of local acclaim, will be on
temporary display at spon-
sor locations through
March, and then donated
permanently to a public
venue.
The Cultural Council of
Indian river County and
their Art in Public Places
committee are working
along with the city of Vero
Beach and Mental Health
Association to establish
the prominent locations to
be considered for perma-
nent placement.
Close to two dozen of the
150 members of the Indian
River Photo Club pho-


tographed the turtles.
Using a make-shift stu-
dio in a storage area at the
home office of the Mental
Health Association at 777
37th St. in Vero Beach, the
club combined profes-
sional and amateur pho-
tographers, rounded up.
equipment, lighting and
backdrops, and used a
weekend session as a great
learning experience for the
group.
Following a full day of
shooting, and another full
day of computer wizardry,
a local artist, utilizing her
skills, brought the photog-
raphy to life which, when
used, will highlight several
pieces of printed collateral
by the Mental Health Asso-
ciation. It will also be used
in associated TurtleTrax
publicity projects.

Organization helps blind people


BY ROBIN RINKE
Staff writer
STUART One of only
five organizations in the
nation certified to repro-
duce Braille material exists
in Stuart.
Braille International car-
ries out the legacy of Louis
Braille, who invented the
system of raised dots that
made it possible,for people
who are blind to read and
write for themselves.
To honor the inventor's
birthday, January was
named National Braille Lit-
eracy Month.
Braille International isn't
the only Martin County
nonprofit organization that
serves the visually
impaired. The 20/200 Fel-
lowship is an independent
resource center for the
blind and visually impaired
that serves five counties.
Certified by the Library of
Congress, Braille Interna-
tional produces an average


of 2.6 million pages of
Braille per month.
"We take publications and
reproduce it into Braille. It is
an expensive process
because of the time
involved. Production is a
step-by-step process for
each and every page," said
Jamie Redditt, president of
Braille International.
Linda Wiggins, director of
administration of Braille
International, said, "The
government calls us for
contract work for the Inter-
nal Revenue Service, the
Department of Education
and the Government Print-
ing Office. Our organization
ranks in the top three of the
five Braille Houses in the
nation.
"Contracts with the
Library of Congress, keep us
busy with printing monthly
magazines such as Martha
Stewart Living, Ladies
Home Journal, ESPN, three
health letters, Boy's Life, and
several children's maga-

have 160 book titles to print
for them," she said.
Many agencies such as
The National Federation of
the Blind and Parents of
Blind Children come to
Braille International for
Braille printing.
Religious organizations
such as the Billy Graham
Evangelical Association and
Braille Bibles International
also use the printing servic-


es. Private businesses such
as Disney, Sea World and
many chain restaurants
have menus, guidebooks
and information printed in
Braille for their visually
impaired customers.
"The Braille process
begins when we receive the
printed material, which we
scan, and if acquired digi-
tally, we download it to file.

Braille
From page C3


This is was my first job
here," Mrs. Wiggins said.
"Then it's off to the tran-
scription department who
reads the file and compares
it to the printed matter.
Scanning errors are correct-
ed and formatting codes are
added.
"It is then run through a
Braille translator and print-
ed on Braille embossers and
sent to proofreading," she
said.
Blind proofreaders such
as Joe Abate, who is a 23-
year veteran of proofread-
ing, and "sighted" copy-
holders such as Cathy
Kurpil, read the Braille
material and compare it to
the print magazine or book.
Every single punctuation
and format is spoken for
complete accuracy.
"Literacy is just as impor-
tant to blind people as to
those with sight. It's our
only way to read," Mr. Abate
said.
"I'm certified by the
National Library Service to
proofread. The job has its
moments, and 23 years is a
long time, but I know it
helps others," he said.
He also said he prefers
reading to audio. He likes
having a hard copy in his
hands because it helps him
feel and "see" what the
author is doing.
At this stage in the
process, if an error is found,
it is sent back to data entry
for correction. After the cor-
rection is checked, the
material is released to the
plate embossing device
where it is embossed onto
zinc plates and read again
by a blind proofreader.
When the plates are error-
free, they are sent to the


pressroom, where the
Braille will be embossed on
paper.
"Two different types of
presses are used in the
manufacture of our Braille
material," Mrs. Wiggins
said.
"Hand presses are used
for' books and specialized
material and the Heidelberg
presses are used for maga-
zines and other projects
where large quantities of
Braille are desired."
She said the Braille pages
are then loaded onto wire
racks and sent to the

bound.
The bindery department
makes sure all books and
.magazines are collated,
folded, stitched or put in
covers.
"Magazines are then fold-
ed and stitched and packed
for shipping. Book pages
are folded and punched.
Each copy is verified before
it is put in a hard cover pro-
duced in our bookcover
department," Mrs. Wiggins
said.
She said, at this point, the
books are packed for ship-
ping.
The book cover depart-
ment makes each cover
from scratch, starting with
vinyl and ending with the
print book information on
the spine.
"Two of the five other
Braille houses use our serv-
ices for their covers," Mrs.
Wiggins said.

employs more than 38 peo-
ple. The company ships
worldwide and touches
countless lives.

There is a limited amount of
printed resources in Braille
out there. It's not like going

said.
The 20/200 Fellowship,
which is located at 4992 S.E.
Kingfish Ave. in Port Saler-
no, helps countless lives
with progressing in knowl-
edge and independence.
"We are here to help those
with vision loss to keep
their independence and
freedom," said Sindy
Greenwell, program co-
coordinator of 20/200 Fel-
lowship.
"Our organization serves
Palm Beach, Martin, St.
Lucie, Indian River and
Okeechobee counties. We
have a newsletter that is
sent to more than 1,000
people. At this time we
directly work with more
than 500 people," she said.
She said they serve all ages

They are the only resource

computer would be a use-
less lump of metal to us,"
Ms. Greenwell said.
"We have technology now
that they did not have 20
years ago. We teach clients
how to use a software pro-
gram called Jaws. It actually
reads everything on the
screen to the user. It's amaz-
ing. Being computer literate
gives those of us with vision
loss more opportunities
and freedom," she said.
One such client is Ronald
Andrini, president of the
board of 20/200 Fellowship.
When Mr. Andrini came
to the fellowship he was
legally blind.
Anyone with vision worse
than 20/200 that cannot be
improved with corrective
lenses is considered legally
blind. In addition, people
with a visual field of less
than 20 degrees diameter
(10 degrees radius) are also
considered legally blind.
"I lost my sight nine years
ago from retinol detach-
ment. I lost everything. Get-
ting back into the work
force and on with life was
difficult. Learning the Jaws
software program on com-
puter was crucial for me.
The fellowship helped me,"
Mr. Andrini said.
"Now, I do everything,
exceptpsee," said Mr. Andri-
ni.
"I have a job, more confi-
dence, and best of all, I have
my independence and free-
dom. I even play percussion
in a salsa band," he said.
According to Prevent
Blindness America, over the
next 30 years, as the baby-
boomers age, the number
of visually impaired Ameri-
cans is predicted to double.
"The Treasure Coast can
anticipate tremendous
impact from this growth.
Through the innovative
programs and services we
provide, the Fellowship is
poised to be our communi-
ty's response," said former
executive director Amy
Steinmetz, who took a vol-
untary lay-off due to budget
cuts at the fellowship this
year.
Both Braille International

Keep canals dean because all canals flow to the Indian River Lagoon


or Florida residents,
canals are one of our
most important
neighbors. Canals are the
reason that we are able to
live in many parts of Florida
because they provide
drainage and flood control.
Since our canals take care
of our needs, we should
help take care of them.
Living near a canal brings
with it a level of landscape
maintenance responsibility.
The water that flows off our
lawns carries things such as
grass clippings, leaf and
limb litter, soil, fertilizer,
and pesticides, which
usually end up in the
canals. The water that flows
through the canals does not
get treated, so whatever
gets washed or dumped


.



JANET BARGAR
Water Quality
Extension Agent
into the canals flows into a
larger water body such as
the Indian River Lagoon.
Once the debris reaches
its destination, the water
quality of that water body
can be negatively affected.
Phosphorus and nitrogen
from decaying grass


introduce excess nutrients
into a water body and
decrease water quality by
promoting algal growth.
Algae blocks out sunlight
vital to seagrasses and robs
the water of dissolved
oxygen, which can lead to
fish kills. Loose soil from
eroded areas can also be
carried through the canals
and can smother aquatic
plants that provide habitat
and dissolved oxygen for
our fish and other aquatic
wildlife.
In order to keep these
negative things from
happening to our water
bodies, there are some
simple landscape practices
that can be done to help
protect our canals and
ultimately, our fragile water


bodies.
*Make sure grass clip-
pings do not blow or get
deposited into canals. This
practice includes not
sweeping or blow grass
clippings into the street.
The next rainstorm or
irrigation can carry them
into the canals.
*Leave grass clippings on
the lawn for "grasscycling."
Grass clippings are 75 to 85
percent water. When you
mow regularly, clippings
quickly decompose and
release nutrients that
fertilize the lawn. Grasscy-
cling can supply about a
quarter of the fertilizer
needed each season.
*When fertilizing, leave a
Ring of Responsibility along
the canal. This is an

Volunteers and kids jump into reading


BY WENDY DWYER
For Hometown News
Zach Simonetti and Dan
Hafner are an unlikely pair
whose friendship has last-
ed through changes of
schools, jobs, and lifetime
milestones, such as losing
baby teeth and gaining
access into the American
Association of Retired Per-
sons.
Through it all, the pair
gets together once a week
to read, hang out, and
once in a great while, eat
lunch together.
Zach, a student at St.
Lucie Elementary School,
and, a mechanic for the St.
Lucie County School Dis-
trict and Volunteer reading
mentor, became friends
through Big Brothers Big
Sisters' Jump Into Reading
program.
Jump Into Reading is an
innovative program imple-
mented by Big Brothers Big
Sisters of St. Lucie, Indian
River, and Okeechobee
Counties.


Volunteer mentors agree
to spend one hour each
week in a school setting
with kindergarten, first, or
second graders, who are
struggling with reading.
Studies have shown that
students who have a good
solid foundation and grasp
of reading by second
grade, tend to be exponen-
tially more successful
throughout their academic
career in all subject mat-
ters.
"For nine years, mem-
bers of the community
have been generously
donating their time and
talent to help instill a love
of reading in children of
the community," said
Melodee Daniello, school-
based program director for
BBBS for the past seven
years.
Currently, more than 600
children and nearly 300
volunteers are involved
with the program.
"Volunteers for the Jump
Into Reading program

al degrees or training, just
a love of reading and a will-
ingness to share an hour,
once or twice a week, with
a child who finds reading a
struggle.
"Volunteers range in age
from 16 year-old students,
enrolled in a high school
degree program, to senior
citizens, well into their late
80's, who faithfully read
and visit with students
once or twice each week,"
Mrs. Daniello said.
Students enjoy having a
mentor, and some of the
surprising and unexpected
benefits of the reading
program include reduced
absenteeism among stu-
dents on their scheduled
mentoring day, and a more
positive attitude at both
school and home.
"Every week when I walk
in the classroom, the other
kids immediately start call-
ing out, telling my child his
mentor is here," one men-
tor said. "And every week,
at least two more children
ask me if I'll be their men-
tor, too. I know it makes
the child I'm working with
feel so special on the days
when I come to work with
him."
Many of the children
being mentored come
from single parent families
and have several siblings,
so they're not accustomed
to receiving individual
attention and assistance
with reading.
Despite that they are
working in the school sys-
tem and often in a class-
room setting, the reading
mentors are pre-screened
and undergo the same
thorough background
check as Community-
Based mentors. They sign
in and log their hours each
week, and work regularly

with a case manager from
Big Brothers Big Sisters,
who helps volunteers
make a strong individual
and educational connec-
tion with the child. That
connection encourages a
love of literacy from very.
young age.
Nearly every student who
is mentored through the
program shows significant
improvement in literacy
skills during regular test-
ing, and many are reading
at or above their grade
level by the end of the first
year of the mentoring rela-
tionship.
For Zach and Mr. Hafner,
the mentoring relationship
that began as a weekly
reading session, has blos-
somed into a genuine
friendship.
Mr. Hafner is able to act
as a positive male role
model in the life of his
younger friend, and Zach
introduced Mr. Hafner to
the world of dinosaurs,
something the two have
explored through some of
their book choices.
Mr. Hafner also remind-
ed his older friend about
the joys and frustrations of
being a kid. He said it's
easy to become desensi-
tized as the years go by,
and the mind fills up with
'adult-sized' problems.
And while it's only an
hour every week, Mr. Hafn-
er says he looks forward to
Tuesday mornings, when
he visits with Zach. He
added that reading with
the youngster is one of the
highlights of his week.

class structure for teaching
young children.

VBE parents tackle


English to help children


improve test scores


BY WARREN KAGARISE

Romana Gutierrez
stared at the worksheet,
its lines filled with com-
mon English phrases.
The language was prov-
ing its trickiness in an
unexpected way, and Ms.
Gutierrez asked if the
hyphen in the word
"good-bye" should be
pronounced or left silent.
Spanish is their first
language for Ms. Gutier-'
rez and nine other stu-
dents, a total of eight
women and two men.
Each of them is a parent
of a Vero Beach Elemen-
tary student.
On Tan. 13, they sat,
worksheets in hand, in
the- school's computer
lab, participants in free
classes to sharpen their
English skills and help
them decipher their chil-
dren's homework.
The 'classes, which


.


began Jan. 6, are the first
of their kind in Indian
River County.
Ana Rodriguez, the dis-
trict's ESOL resource
teacher, conducts the
classes with the help of
Claudia Viladrosa-Fonse-
ca, Vero Beach Elemen-
tary's health aide.
"We're excited, they're
excited," Ms. Rodriguez
said during, a break from
her second class.
(ESOL is the abbreviat-
ed form of English for
Speakers of Other Lan-
guages.)
In interviews, with Ms.
Rodriguez acting as a
translator, the parents
said they wanted to help,
their children succeed
with their assignments
and on next month's
Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test.
"We want to help our
children do their home-
work," said Carlos Torres,

fourth grade.
After taking attendance
and stealing a swig from
her bottle of Fiji Water,
Ms. Rodriguez issued her
instructions twice, the
first time in crisp English,
and the second in rapid
Spanish.
One group filed to a
bank of black Dells where
they pointed and clicked
through Earobics, a com-
puter-based language
tool.
Another group flipped
open workbooks and, fol-
lowing Ms. Rodriguez's
lead, began practicing
English greetings.
"It's a good feeling to be
able to understand the
professor," said Ruth
Guzman, one of the par-
ents. "I feel comfortable
enough to ask questions.
They understand what
we're saying and where
we're coming from."
Ms. Viladrosa-Fonseca,
who is bilingual, praised
the class because it would
also help familiarize the
parents with computers,
the same model their
children navigate each
day.
There were other, prac-
tical factors at work.
"It's very important for
me as an employee to
speak the language of this
country," Ms. Gutierrez
said.

Living in South Florida for'dunmies'


What to do if bit
by a snake -
and how to
avoid it
I wish a Florida native
would write a book titled,
"Living in South Florida
for Dummies."
It would have saved me
from a snakebite.
Yeah, I got bit.
It all happened when I
recently took a walk around
the block at my community.
At 8 p.m. I threw on some
flip-flops and headed out
into the cool January
evening.
I generally bring my cell
phone with me so I can
"walk and talk" with my
Northembound little sister.


Fifteen minutes into our
conversation, the sidewalk
became very dark because
of a street light malfunction.
As I rounded the dark
comer, I felt a weird sensa-
tion on my left big toe. I said
to my sister, "Oh my gosh, I
think something just bit my
big toe."
She laughed and called me
a drama queen. That really
got my goat. I think she was
just jealous that I could
actually take a walk in
January.
Out of fear, I decided to
dismiss the snakebite theory
for something nicer; like
maybe a scratch from a
stick. Besides, that theory is
not as deadly.
I hung up on my sister; she
was no support for a
possible snakebite victim


ROBIN RINKE
staff writer
like myself.
Heck, I could be dying.
That would teach her to call
Sme a drama queen.
The biggest bites she gets up
there are from mosquitoes
or wood ticks.
At the next street light, I


took a peek at my toe. Sure
enough, two fang marks
with blood. I began to worry.
Would I make it home if it
were a poisonous snake that
bit me? How much time did
I have? I couldn't run
because I heard that an
accelerated heartbeat could
cause the poison to get into
your bloodstream even
faster.
I made it home. I went
right to my husband Charles
and showed him the bloody
fang marks. He didn't seem
too disturbed, and said,"
Must have been a little
snake."
Little or not, a snake is a
snake! I couldn't believe one
bit me. He couldn't believe I
wore flip-flops out in the
dark.
I looked up the number to


Poison Control on my
laptop while my husband
and daughter Phoebe
watched TV
I dialed (800) 222-1222.
The poison control woman
was so calm and nice.
She first asked me
questions to determine
what type of snake bit me.
She also said, "Sounds like
a small one bit you." Yeah,
OK, so it was small. It was
still a snake, people!
She asked me questions
like; is your toe numb? Are
you finding it hard to
breathe? Are you feeling ill?
All to which I said "no."
She said she would call
ahead to the hospital
emergency room for me,
but, after I saw how tiny
the bite was and that I had
no sign of being bitten by


a poisonous snake I
decided to wait it out on
my couch. Charles went to
bed.
After an hour of waiting,
my toe got a bit redder
and that was about it.
For those of you that, like
'me, have been transplant-
ed from the North, take my
advice, *Don't wear flip-
flops at night while taking
a walk. +Have the poison
control number near your
phone. *Don't callyour
northern sister for sympa-
thy.
There are many things to
learn about life in Florida
for transplants. I seem to
be learning the hard way.

Vero Beach Elementary
is such a school, one that
receives federal money
because so many of its
students are on the free
and reduced-price meal
rolls.
The federal No Child
Left Behind Act requires
Title I schools to make
adequate yearly'progress
on the FCAT among
groups of students divid-
ed by economic, racial
and other factors.
Title I schools that fail
to show adequate yearly
progress for five consec-
utive years then face
sanctions.
Vero Beach Elementary
faces "corrective action"
next school year, the step
before restructuring a
process that can mean
staff shuffles and other
measures.
This adds particular
urgency for Ms. Gutierrez
and the other parents.
"Kids will feel comfort-
able when they're doing
their homework to have
someone there to help
them," Ms. Viladrosa-
Fonseca said.
Some parents have a
keen ability to under-
stand English, but cannot
write it. 'Others speak
very little of it.
Until she can divide
them according to skill
level, "we're going to have
to play it by ear," Ms.
Rodriguez said.
Each student receives a
Spanish-English diction-
ary and a workbook, both
from the district. Ms.
Rodriguez and Ms.
Viladrosa-Fonseca vol-
unteer their time. Anoth-
er volunteer, Andrea
Williams, a school dis-
trict social worker and
ESOL resource teacher,
also pitched in during the
Jan. 13 class.
Maria Calder6n, anoth-
er parent, said she was
petrified when she took
English classes in the
past, but said she
enjoyed the informal set-
ting of Ms. Rodriguez's
classroom.
"Bring your questions,"
Ms. Rodriguez said,
"whether it's about your
child's homework or
something in your per-
sonal lives."

SafeSpace, the shelter
which serves over 330 vic-
tims of domestic violence
and their children every

Ridge residents, Doug
and Patty Stewart.
The Stewarts, who ini-

large challenge donation,
in an undisclosed
amount, as a way to kick

resource to help prevent
domestic violence.
The couple will also
chair a capital campaign
to help raise the $1.2 mil-
lion needed to build the
shelter.
The Stewarts, relative
newcomers to the area,
have been involved with
SafeSpace, the domestic
violence shelter and
advocacy program which
serves Martin, St. Lucie
and Indian River Coun-
ties, since relocating to
Florida.
Mrs. Stewart learned
about SafeSpace from
neighbors and friends at
Harbour Ridge who vol-
unteered and collected
items for the women and
children who are the shel-
ter's temporary residents.
When she shared her
commitment to helping
women and children in
crisis situations with Mr.
Stewart, a Houston oil-
man, he felt the same way,
and was volunteering
with SafeSpace by Christ-
mastime last year.
"Patty and I are asking
from the community a
commitment to helping
the. organization move
forward and build a safe
shelter," Mr. Stewart said.
"We both feel it's so
important for women in
crisis and transition to
have a safe, welcoming

space to call home, even if
it's only a temporary
home, and the current
shelter leaves a lot to be
desired," Mr. Stewart said.
SafeSpace executive
director Hylan Bryan
agrees. "Sadly, the shelter
is always filled to capaci-
ty. The hurricanes of the
last few years, and the
constant traffic through
the shelter have certainly
taken their toll. We are so
grateful to the Stewarts
for coming forward and
making a challenge gift to
kick off the capital cam-
paign for a new shelter."
"Even more gratifying is
their willingness to chair
the campaign arid help
ensure its success. This is
truly the gift of a lifetime
and will benefit the many
women and children who
seek the services of Safe-
Space," said Mr. Bryan.
According to Mr. Bryan,
statistics show that one in
three women is the victim
of domestic violence, and
most of the women who
seek assistance from

SafeSpace come with
their children.
The Stewarts are con-
vinced that individuals
and families who want to
help SafeSpace will find
the way that's best for
them, whether it's help-
ing with the agency's
immediate needs, or
helping to create a lasting
legacy by investing in the
future of the agency, and
indeed, the community.
When deciding about
whether or not to remain
anonymous: in their
donation, the pair real-
ized that, in order to
mount a successful capi-
tal campaign, it was cru-
cial to provide leadership
by example. On Jan. 23,
the couple will officially
kick off the capital cam-
paign on behalf of Safe-
Space with a gathering of
their neighbors at Har-
bour Ridge.

Space at PO Bo 4075,

Fire kicks-off season in Palm Bowl


Mitch Kloorfain/chief photographer
Fort Pierce Fire's Steven Giancontieri (No. 55) sacks Mil-
waukee Bulldogs quarterback Brent Luebke (No. 3) at
Lawnwood Stadium Saturday, Jan. 13. The Fire lost the
pre-season game 10-0 and begin their season Saturday,
Jan. 20, against the Treasure Coast Pirates.
Despite solid defense, Fort Pierce
falls in season opener


BY MATTHEW DEWHURST
Sports writer
As the NFL Playoffs
entered this second
weekend, there was
another football league
just getting started.
The Fort Pierce Fire


minor league football
team played host to the
National Bowl Weekend
Jan. 13-14 at Lawnwood
stadium in Fort Pierce,
welcoming in teams from
California, Wisconsin,
Pennsylvania, New York
and Florida.

Fort Pierce Fire's Mike Carter (No. 77) scrambles for a loose ball against the Milwaukee Bulldogs at Lawnwood Stadium
Saturday, Jan. 13. The Fire lost the pre-season game 10-0 and begin their season Saturday, Jan. 20, against the Treasure
Coast Pirates.


On Jan. 13 the Fire
kicked off its season with
a game, against the Mil-
waukee Bulldogs in the
Florida Bowl. Although
Fort Pierce looked great
on defense, their lack of
offense hurt, as they fell
to the Bulldogs, 10-0 in
the team's first game of
the season.
The Fire struggled: to'


maintain any rhythm
with the ball, going three
and out on two of their
first three possessions.
Fort Pierce lost a fumble
on the first play of their
second possession, which
led to a Milwaukee field
goal.
The 37-yard kick
remained on the score-
board as the only points


of the game until Bull-
dogs running back Calvin
Thomas ran in a 1-yard
touchdown with 55.2 sec-
onds left in the game.
Fort Pierce had a shot to
get some last second
points after Antorry
Young ran the ensuing
kickoff back 46 yards, but
the Fires offensive mis-
cues continued with a


short run, two incom-
plete passes, and an off-
side penalty,
Fire quarterback Quin-
ton Jackson was sacked
on fourth and 11 to end
the game.
"Offensively we strug-
gled," said Fire offensive
coach Jerome Stone. "We

From page D1
got a good group of
receivers and running
backs, but we need to
work on blocking up front
in order to help us."
Jackson, who was the
team starting quarter-
back during the Fires'
inaugural year in 2003,
replaced quarterback
Tommy Share late in the
second quarter after
Share left the game with a
hyper-extended knee. He
is day-to-day.
"This game was a wake-
up call for our offense to
work harder in practice.
Offense always takes
more time to come
together than defense,"
Jackson said. "Tommy
plays great ball, but
unfortunately he went
down. Hopefully he'll be
back next week."
Linebacker Willie
Boston led all defenders


with 10 solo tackles. He
also had five assists and
was named the games
defensive MVP.
Boston, a 1998 graduate
of Port St. Lucie High
School, felt good about
the way his defense
played, but also felt the
offense needed to play
better if the Fire plan on
winning down the line.
"It's kind of reassuring,
knowing pretty much
where (the defense) is at.
But we got to step it up in
practice. They were (12-
1), so they were a good
team, they were no push
over," said Boston.
"Offense got to step it up
a little bit. If they give us
something, we'll be good
to go."
It wasn't all lost for the
Fires offense on the after-
noon. Fort Pierce was
able to control the game
clock efficiently, winning
the time of possession
battle handedly. Fort
Pierce had the ball for


41:22, while Milwaukee
had it for 18:38.
But despite maintaining
possession for two-thirds
of the game, the Fire still
had to rely on its defense
to keep them in the game.
Before leaving the game
with injury, Share looked
+good in the pocket for the
Fire. He left the game
after completing for 4-6
passes for 67 yards, while
leading the team in rush-
ing with 30 yards on six
carries.
Stone said that quarter-
back position wasn't
completely locked up as
of yet, especially with the
injury to Share. Along
with Jackson, they Fire
also have Jason Taylor on
the roster, who was the
teams signal caller last
year.
The Fire will play their
second game of the year
against the Treasure
Coast Pirates at Guy
Davies Field in Stuart,
Saturday, Jan. 20 at 7 p.m.

Attending induction was dream come true


s a child, I often
spent most of my
ummers in upstate
NewYork. I can remember
taking the short drive to
Cooperstown to the
Baseball Hall of Fame.
While I never attended
any of the introduction
ceremonies, I could
picture in my mind's eye
not only what it would be
like to be there, but what it
would be like to be one of
the players making an
acceptance speech.
Well, my baseball talent
ran far short of a trip to
Cooperstown. In fact,
while I am pretty good at
many sports, I am master
of none. There will be no
speech for me in front of a
large crowd gathered at the
Hall of Fame.


I Come to You -
Wherever You Are


JAMES STAMMER
Golf columnist

Still, I have longed to
attend an induction
ceremony.
Years ago, I planned to
travel to Cooperstown to
see my baseball hero, Mike
Schmidt, get inducted.

ments saw to it that the
trip never happened for
me. I was certain that I
would never know the
excitement of attending a
Hall of Fame induction
ceremony. That was until a
short month or so ago.
Unbeknownst to me, we
have a Hall of Fame right
here in our backyard. The
PGA of America's PGA Golf
Professional Hall of Fame
is, at the PGAVillage in Port
St. Lucie.
On Dec. 8, seven men
were inducted into the
Hall, and I was there to
witness my first induction
ceremony.
The PGA Golf Profession-
al Hall of Fame originated
in 1940 at the suggestion of
famed sports writer
Grantland Rice.
After spending most of its
years in Pinehurst, N.C.,
and then in St. Augustine,
the Hall was moved to
PGAVillage in 2003:
This year's class includ-
ed a friend of mine, Gary
Wiren along with Dow
Finsterwald, Jack Nick-
laus, Manuel De La Torre,
William Heald, Roger
Warren and Bill Eschen-
brenner.
Each inductee was
honored for his passions
for and contributions to
the game of golf and the
PGA of America.
The ceremony was held
at the PGA's Learning
Center. Despite the
coldest weather of the
year, the crowd was quite
large and easily filled the
stands brought in for the
event. The late arrivals
gathered around in
standing-room only
fashion.
Manuel De La Torre led
things off. De La Torre, a
top teaching professional,
spoke of his desire for
education. He talked of
how his goal was to
,promote education in
everth i ng in life, not just
in golf.
Dow Finsterwald, a PGA
of America member since


1956, was next in line. He
thanked his wife, Linda,
with whom he has
enjoyed 53 years of
marriage, for being there
with him through his life.
Dow concluded his
speech with a tear in his
eye.
"I am proud to be a part
of golf, the greatest game
of all. I feel privileged to
be a PGA professional for
50 years," he said.
William Heald, who
began his career as a
caddie, was the highlight
of the evening for me.
The man with the
bubbly personality started
off his moment with flare.
"I haven't had this much.
fun since I led the cab-
bage strike of 1949," he
told the amused crowd.
With a big grin and a
mischievous twinkle in
his eye he then added,
"We won. Our wages went
from 75 cents to $1."
The man best known as
the "Greatest Golfer Ever"
was not on hand that,
evening. Jack Nicklaus
had prior commitments
half-way around the
world that he tried dili-
gently to break, but could
not make it. His lovely
wife, Barbara accepted on
his behalf.
Barbara spoke of how
Jack started playing the
game at age 10. Jack
wanted to spend some
time with his father who
was recovering from a
broken ankle. Jack went to
the course with his dad
and between holes, while
dad rested, Jack would
chip and putt. It was the
beginning of a grand
career, one that Jack says
he owes to all PGA profes-
sionals.
My friend GaryWiren
followed.Wiren spoke of
how his wife, Tracy, stayed
home with their four
children while he traveled
and taught. He told us that
golf is not about $40

million clubhouses. It's
about playing the game
with friends and new
acquaintances.
He concluded with a
profound statement.
"I want to thank my
mom for reading to me as
a child. She taught me that
those who dare to teach
should never cease to
learn."


Bill Eschenbrenner, the
PGA Golf Professional of
the Year and Roger War-
ren, outgoing PGA presi-
dent, concluded the
ceremony. Warren spoke
of what an honor it had
been to the 34th president
of the PGA fAmerica.
Eschenbrennet summed
up the award perfectly.
"This award is special
because it represents


someone from every facet
of the game," he said.
The seven men inducted
that day are just as special
as the award bestowed
upon them.
I thank them for sharing
their special moment with
me, and many others that
day.
In dolig so, now I have
achieved one of my
dreams.
