McCain


reaches


out

BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer
VERO BEACH From
the pulpit, Republican
presidential candidate
John McCain promised
deliverance .from these
"dark times" his easy,
optimistic tone punctuat-
ed by the stained glass
window behind him.
"It's hard to do the Lord's
work in the city of Satan,"
the Arizona senator said
Feb. 19, earning laughter
from his audience.
In the pews, about 900
people filled the seats of
the Community Church as
Mr. McCain delivered a
stump speech he'd sharp-
ened days before in Iowa
and South Carolina.
His Vero Beach appear-
ance, not a campaign stop
per se, was part of the
Riverside Theatre's Distin-
guished Lecturer Series.

Homeless ministry

wins approval for

recovery center


BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
VERO BEACH County
commissioners ended the
six-month dispute
between The Source, a
homeless-aid ministry,
and the neighbors of its
new recovery center on
37th Street by allowing the
ministry to move ahead
with its plan.
Neighbors may appeal
the decision in Circuit
Court.
At their Feb. 13 meeting,
commissioners never
heard the pros the
impassioned pleas about
ministering to the home-
less or promises, of safety
- or the cons worries
from residents whose


neighborhood will soon
house 18 homeless people.
Instead, lawyers for The
Source and the neighbors
addressed commissioners,
whose final decision was
based on a legal technical-
ity.
In a 3-2 vote, commis-
sioners followed county
attorney Will Collins'
advice that the neighbors'
appeal was deficient.
The neighbors' attorney,
Michael O'Haire of Vero
Beach, did not pay the
$800 fee when he appealed
county approval for the
project in September.
Mr. O'Haire paid the fee
in November, but by that
point the 21-day window

Mayors hear alternatives


to charter government


Consultant tells
leaders 'starter
charter' a myth
BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
When commissioners
draft a charter for Indian
River County later this
year, they will likely design
measures to limit growth
and increase voter control
over certain land-use deci-
sions but they could also
cut the powers of the
county's cities and towns.
"When a charter county
becomes a charter county,
they may do so with the
best of intentions," said
Rebecca O'Hara, deputy
general counsel for the
Florida League of Cities.
Ms. O'Hara addressed


municipal and county
leaders at Vero Beach City
Hall on Feb. 15, detailing a
charter's potential conse-
quences for city govern-
ments.
All cities govern under a
charter, which gives them
their ordinance-writing
ability. Counties, mean-
while, draw their authority
.from the state and must
rely on the legislature to
outline their powers.
Even a "starter charter"
or "charter lite," which
Indian .River County is
considering, could even-
tually be changed to chip
away at cities' powers, she
said, citing examples from
the counties governed
under charters.
"There's no such thing
as charter lite," Ms. O'Hara
said. "I can't say that


enough."
Of Florida's 67 counties,
19 have enacted charters.
"Once enacted, a county
charter can be amended
to pick off the folks who
opposed it, one by one,"
she said.
The mayors of Vero
Beach, Fellsmere, Indian
River Shores and Orchid
also heard alternatives to a
charter: A special act of
the legislature to give vot-
ers control over zoning
density in certain areas
and a 2006 law that allows
cities and counties to
enter decades-long land-
use agreements.
"We just want to protect
our home rule," Vero
Beach Mayor Tom White
said.

dential housing per acre.
To open its center, The
Source would normally
need the land to be
rezoned to eight or 10
units per acre.
At the center of the
debate was a "grandfather
clause" that county plan-
ners said gave The Source
the same zoning exception
that Alcohope was allowed.
After I AM Ministries
bought the land, Senior
County Planner John
McCoy approved the same
zoning exception for the
Life Recovery Center.
In his decision, Mr.
McCoy said Alcohope had
not been out of the build-
ings for the year before the
land was sold, which would
have eliminated the zoning
exception.
Not so, said neighbors,
who argued that Alcohope
was gone months before
The Source moved in.
"I think it takes a fair
amount of gall to argue
otherwise," Mr. O'Haire
told commissioners.
Following the vote, Tom
King, executive director of
The Source, extended an
olive branch, saying he
wanted to work with neigh-
bors once the Life Recovery
Center opens its doors.
"It was a wonderful, sur-
prise ending," Mr. King
said. "I'm very happy with
the decision."

Mental health court aims to treat, not jail


BY MATT DONEGAN
Staff writer
Until last year, lawbreakers with
serious mental illnesses like schizo-
phrenia or bipolar disorder who were
deemed sane and competent were
traditionally sentenced to do time
with the general population at Trea-
sure Coast jails.
A rapidly growing mental health
court formed in the Treasure Coast's
19th Judicial Circuit last June is tak-
ing a new approach to dealing with
these offenders. Those affiliated with
the court say it's working.
The program started with six cases
in June. Since then, there have been
nearly 200.
"I don't -think the public realizes


how many mentally ill people go
through the criminal justice system
and are in our local jails," said 19th
Circuit Court public defender Dia-
mond Litty. "The beauty of this is
that it not only helps the mentally ill
who need help and don't need to be
incarcerated, it also helps ease jail
overcrowding."
In lieu of jail, clients identified by
law enforcement, judges, casework-
ers, etc. ... as being mentally ill quali-
fy for mental health court, where
individualized alternative sentences
are handed down.
To graduate mental health court,
which can take anywhere from six
months to a year, depending on the
offense, people in the program must
do things like go to their doctor


and/or therapist appointments, take
their medication and stay clean of
illegal drugs.
"All we really want to do is get peo-
ple out of the revolving door and get
them hooked up with the services
they need," said Lisa Fonteyn, direc-
tor of the public defender's office
client services division, which over-
sees mental health court.
Success stories include that of a
paranoid schizophrenic, who con-
tinued failing to follow the court's
orders. Instead of sending him to jail,
the court continued to work with the
man, and Ms. Fonteyn said he finally
"got it."
"He takes his medication, and

Additional $1 million may be needed
to renovate airport
VERO BEACH To pay for new offices, a new roof
and better security, among other improvements,
the $4.6 million renovation of the Vero Beach
Municipal Airport terminal will need another $1
million.
Airport officials may have to ask the City Council
for the extra cash, they said at an Airport Commis-
sion meeting on Feb. 16.
A $3 million grant from the Florida Department of
Transportation will cover most of the renovation
cost. The airport will pump about $1.6 million into
the project, revenue it receives from leasing airport
property.
The renovations, scheduled to begin in July, will
also add an elevator to comply with the Americans
with Disabilities Act and upgrade lighting and
plumbing.
Airport officials hope the project will be complet-
ed by September 2008.
The terminal was built in 1965.

Piper's 2006 revenue
up above previous year
VERO BEACH Piper Aircraft Co., the general
aviation manufacturer, posted estimated revenue of
$175 million for 2006, a $36.2 million spike over the
previous year, according to figures released Feb. 14.
Last year, the Vero Beach-based company sold 238
planes, five more than the previous year. Height-
ened sales of its high-end planes fueled the climb in
revenue, the company said.
The Meridian, one of the company's more expen-
sive models, costs about $1.89 million per plane.
Piper sold 49 of the models.
Additionally, the company sold 37 of its Saratoga
II TC planes, about $573,500 apiece, and 29 Archer
III aircraft, about $229,200 apiece.

Two more candidates
enter 2008 sheriff's race
Two law enforcement officers have entered the
Indian River County Sheriff's Race since incumbent
Roy Raymond announced Feb. 7 he would not seek a
third term.
The two newest candidates are Capt. Deryl Loar,
Treasure Coast district commander for the Florida
Highway Patrol, and Sgt. Kent Campbell of the Indi-
an River County Sheriff's Office.

McCain
From page Al
Mr. McCain, 70, bur-
nished his conservative
credentials then, charac-
teristically, pledged to
work alongside Democ-
rats.
"It's become bitter, angry
and personal, and we need
to stop that," Mr. McCain
said.
He defended his staunch
support for the Iraq war -


but made no promises
about its outcome.
"I cannot look you in the
eye and say it will suc-
ceed," Mr. McCain said.
He attacked Democratic
senators .for what he called
"a charade" for trying two
weeks ago to pass a non-
binding resolution oppos-
ing President Bush's plan
to send 21,500 more
troops to Iraq.
Then, echoing.Mr. Bush's
stark language, he warned
of the "dark forces of evil
that want to destroy us
and America" Islamic
terrorism, and saber-rat-
tling from Iran, North
Korea and Venezuela.
During the first of two
speeches, Mr. McCain -
one of 10 Republicans
running for the party's
nomination spent most
of the hour talking about
the war.
Wearing a pinstriped
suit, pale blue shirt and
lavender tie, the senator
left the pulpit at the end of
his speech, taking ques-
tions from audience mem-
bers for about 15 minutes.
He staked out positions
both traditional and unex-
pected a careful dance to
appeal to the conserva-
tives who dominate the
primary season and the
swing voters who could
elevate him to the White
House in the general elec-
tion.
On abortion, for
instance: "I do not support
Roe v. Wade," he said at a
press conference following


his first speech.
The senator supports
federal funding for
embryonic stem cell
research, to the chagrin of
many social conserva-
tives.
Reducing the nation's
dependence on green-
house gas-producing fos-
sil fuels can be accom-
plished by broadening
nuclear power, he said to
applause.
"I believe that climate
change is real," he said.
Regarding illegal immi-
gration, he chronicled the
economic and political
toll it's taken on his home
state, then declared,
"Amnesty is not' an
option."
Earlier that day, Mr.
McCain met with religious
broadcasters at their
Orlando convention to do
some fence-mending with
religious conservatives,
some of whom he brand-
ed as "agents of intoler-
ance" during his 2000
campaign.
"It was fine," he said at
the press conference. "It
was a good meeting. It was
fine."
Mr. McCain, who arrived
at the Community Church
with a gaggle of campaign
aides and reporters,
brought along former
Texas Sen. Phil Gramm,
who has been advising the
campaign.
"I think he's the right
man at the right time," Mr.
Gramm told supporters
after the speech.

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 yours. 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.

Court
From page A3


when he feels his medica-
tion isn't working, he
checks himself into New
Horizons (a Fort Pierce
center specializing in men-
tal health and substance
abuse rehabilitation), and
that's really what you want
to try to get them to do to
understand mental illness
is an illness, just like cancer
or heart disease, and that
you have to know your
signs and symptoms," she
said. "It's very successful to
me when someone can rec-
ognize they have a mental
illness, recognize if their
medications aren't working
and ask for help."


In addition to medical
care, client services also
helps those sentenced in
mental health court get
jobs, living accommoda-
tions, education and more.
"We feel strongly that
clients, whether they're
mentally ill, minor offend-
ers or first-time offenders,
if proper attention is paid
and direction is given, they
can become productive cit-
izens," Mrs. Litty said. "As a
result, you've helped the
community, reduced jail
overcrowding, reduced
case loads, the crime rate,
. everything. The majority of
cases we represent are


these kind of people."
This type of diversionary
court has been a long time
in the works for the 19th
Judicial Circuit, though
Mrs. Litty said the need for
it has been around forever.
A local panel began looking
at other state mental health
courts several years ago.
But funding kept the coun-
ty from implementing its
own, Mrs. Litty said.
About seven years ago,
Circuit Court Judge Cynthia
Cox was on the original
committee aimed at start-
ing a mental health court
for the 19th Circuit. But
back then, she didn't think


it was possible.
"Our administration did-
n't have the mindset yet for
these problem-solving
courts," she said.
As a drug court judge in
Indian River County in
2002, Judge Cox said many
of the people who
appeared in her court had
mental illnesses. Unless
deemed incompetent to
stand trial or not guilty by
reason of insanity, the men-
tally ill faced the same pun-
ishments as everyone else.
Judge Cox has since gone
through training on the
topic of mental illness and
learned how jail can


decompensate those suf-
fering from mental illness
and be a danger to their
safety, even if they do
receive medication while
incarcerated. She's now Cir-
cuit 19's mental health
court judge.
Even though it's only in
its infancy, she said the
court is already making a
difference to offenders.
"It enhances their ability
to live with their mental ill-
ness when you give them a'
job, a place to live, make
sure they're drug-free,
using their medication and
have support if they need
it," she said. "It's an educa-


tional and informational
base for them. We're getting
people who qualify Social
Security or Medicaid. Case
managers help them get
these funds and places to
live. These people couldn't
do that on their own. And a
lot of them have always
self-treated with illegal
drugs or alcohol. We send
them through a 12-step
program. We educate them
on their own disease and
why they need help."
The first 12 people gradu-:
ated mental health court in
December. None have been
re-arrested. The next grad-
uation is April 17,

Prepare for the unknown

I'm hearing on television about people who are stuck
in airports for several hours, and things like that. Maybe
they're stuck on the road because there's a traffic tie up
and they are in the car, and don't have any food or water.
I think people should start assuming some responsibil-
ity about that.
Keep a box of stuff in the back of the car, or in the
trunk, with some things that you could use in case you
get stranded somewhere, or you're stopped on the high-
way for an hour or so.
It's the same when you travel, when you go on an air-
plane, or bus, or something. Just before you leave, take
some things that you could use out of your refrigerator,
and put them in a bag.
People don't mind today to see you get on an airplane
with a bag of food. It's not looked down on at all. It is
something that will come in handy if you do have a prob-
lem.
Take a little pillow, and a small blanket that you can use
if it gets a little chilly especially, if you have children.
I think we should start thinking about those things.

How can we help

I read the rants and raves in the Feb. 9 issue of the
paper about a single father who needs help
There is no way to get hold of that person.
It would be nice if you could publish some phone
number to offer help, a place where a check could be
sent, an organization that could help him, or even let us
know if he got a job.

No English, no license

The other day, coming off the beach, going to my car,
wanting to go home there was a car right next to me, the
exact make and model as mine.
I went over to the driver's side and asked the female
driver how she liked the car.
She looked at me as if I was from another world.
She turned to her daughter and asked, "What does he
want"?
Now I want to know, if they can't understand English,
how in the world do they get a driver's license?

Mail carriers work ethics

I got a kick out of reading about taking charge of your
mailbox in the Rants and Raves, by the spouse of a mail
carrier.
It should have read, "Take charge of your mailman." I
like the way the spouse gives us rules to abide by like not
leaving in your mailbox. How about the $201 I left in cash
for my mail carrier for Christmas, and he took it. I later
read in the paper that they are not allowed to take cash
gifts.
About fixing your mailbox, most of the mailboxes are
dinged up and leaning over because the mail carrier does
not treat them with care, but with abuse.
I have seen ruts in the grass because they don't want to
make an effort to stretch too much to put your mail in the
mailbox.
Along with owning up to who is hitting the mailboxes,
the letter carrier should also own up when they hit them,
which is often.


It was also funny how the spouse of the mail carrier
mentioned about the poor mail carrier being blamed for
other people's sins. It was also said, don't call the post
office when your block doesn't get mail, just be glad that
you didn't get any junk mail that day, and you'll probably
get your mail delivered the next day.
The spouse finished the rant by saying that if you don't
like the system, get a post office Box or use e-mail.
The spouse also said that mail carriers have routes, and
that if a route pays five hours, and the carrier takes twelve
hours to do it, they only get paid for five hours. Well,
maybe they should work like United Parcel Service driv-
ers, and get their routes done quicker that the allotted
time.
But hold on there, they just might have to sweat.

Who is responsible for the mailbox?

I'm calling about the discussion of mail service and
mailboxes, and such.
We have a developer who installed a multiunit mailbox
that has numerous little slots in it for each resident. It
also had a slot to put mail into for pickup to be delivered
elsewhere.
Now, because new houses have been put up, the post
office, in its wisdom, has taped over that slot. It is now
used as someone's mailbox.
They put what I guess I would refer to as a rural mail-
box that one would have in front of their house. That is
where we are supposed to deposit our mail for pickup.
The only problem is that is rotted out, and disintegrating.
I have talked to our mail carrier numerous times. She
has referred it to the post office, and they do nothing.
I've been told that we do not have to repair it; the post
office does, since they put it there.
I wish they'd do something!

Junk mail justice

I want to comment on the article "Take charge of your
mailbox". I
Most folks are annoyed with all the junk mail, which is
a valid complaint.
Having had a discussion about that subject with my
carrier a while back, it was mentioned that without the
substantial postage revenue collected by the U.S. Post
Office from advertisers, us folks would probably be pay-
ing double for our stamps.
In order to make them pay more, I simply send the
return postage paid envelope back empty, so they are
charged again.
The junk stuff goes to recycle, which helps avoid the


tree waste.

Special interest license plates

I would like to send a message to all of you folks who
have special interest license plates on your cars. You all
know who you are.
You thought enough of your cause to spend the extra
money for the license plate. Now think enough of your
cause to do something else.
Your driving is now associated with your cause. If you
don't use your turn signal, your stupidity is associated
with your cause. Whatever stupid thing you do with your
automobile is now associated with your cause.
Likewise, a courteous driving act is associated with
your cause.
You thought enough of your cause to buy the plate.
Think enough of your cause to not degrade it by your
driving.

Televise animal euthanasia

Beautiful and healthy animals would not end up in the
euthanasia rooms of Humane Society shelters if TV cam-
eras were allowed to show euthanasia of a cat, dog, kit-
ten, or puppy! Once the cold-blooded killing is shown,
the taxpayers would surely pass a mandatory
spay/neuter law!
When I phone a TV channel with the idea, the reporter
would not hear of it. But, television reporting is just what
is needed, if voters want to end the killing.
I believed that TV news would want to help end
euthanasia of millions of Florida animals, and I think
they could do it so easily, just by showing a "surplus" cat,
dog kitten, or puppy being killed.

Dropped channel, no compensation

We've been with DirecTV for three years now, and they
seemed to have dropped the Court channel.
I want to know how they can get out of their contract,
when if we wanted to get out of the contract they would
charge us extra money:
How come they're not giving us money back for taking
Court TV away? One of the reasons we got DirecTV was
because I like to watch Cops, and so on.
Now they have taken it away, and they're giving us
nothing.
Does this seem right to you?

To the Editor:
Feb. 23 is the 200th anniversary of the British Parlia-
ment's vote to abolish the transatlantic slave trade. It
is also the release date of a film, Amazing Grace, about
the man who led the British Abolition movement,
William Wilberforce.
While the film does not have much to do with
abolition in the United States, Wilberforce certainly
did.
Abolitionism had widely diffused origins and its
advocates lived on both sides of the Atlantic. The

movement's leaders wrote, visited, financed and
supported each other from the late 1780s through the
1850s.
In the United States, major figures, including Abra-
ham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, and William Wells
Brown publicly praised Wilberforce, and were moved
by his example.
In 1815, one African American minister called him
"the immortal Wilberforce," and upon his death in
1833, the principal of a school for free black children
in New York City wrote a 16-page eulogy as a tribute to
the British leader.

The abolition movement was always far more than
one man's story. It begins and ends with"fimillions
of black people who endured, resisted, rebelled, and
ultimately overcame.
But Wilberforce's is a story that inspires us with a
sense of the difference one person can make, afid
then what can happen when thousands, or millions
make a similar commitment and rally to a worthy idea
whose time is at hand.

Members of the Progres-
sive Alliance of Indian
River County were on
hand at the main library
Saturday to get 'bring our

take to congress and
signed hearts to send to

son-in-law are both

Some residents want the troopshome


BY JAY MEISEL
Associate managing editor
VERO BEACH The
Iraq has touched a Vero
Beach woman more than
most other residents.
Cathy Fournier says she
copes every day with hav-
ing both a son and a son-
in-law serving in Iraq.
"I wish they would all
come home," she said. "It's
a no-win situation."
Ms. Fournier was one of
about 50 people earlier
this month who signed
paper hearts urging the
government to bring the
troops home.
George Baczynski, who
helped collect the signa-
tures, said the number


was good, considering
organizers only collected
names for about two
hours.
"We were quite sur-
prised," he said. "It was a
very positive response.
Most people passing by
praised the effort, though
some thought direct let-
ters would be more effec-
tive, he said.
The hearts were taken to
the office of U.S. Rep.
Dave Weldon, R-Mel-
bourne. The Congressman
was not in the office at the
time.
U.S. Rep. Weldon could
not be reached for com-
ment.
Although Ms. Fourier
joined the others in urging


Congressman Weldon to
support bringing 'the
troops home, she said, she
doesn't want that to hap-
pen immediately.
Instead, she said, the
government should set a
firm date for the with-
drawal and notify Iraq's
government of that time.
"If they want their coun-
try to be free, they (Iraq
residents) need to fight for
it," she said.
Her son, Clinton James
Fournier, 22, graduated
from school in Vero Beach
and has served in Iraq
since October.
Her son-in-law, Craig
Lundgren, 39, is with the
Air Force.
Ms. Fournier said that

Sewage clean up required
On Wednesday, Feb. 7, a contractor working on a piece
of property between Wal-Mart and that big Catholic
church in Sebastian cut a sewer line at the rear of the
property. The raw sewage flowed into a pond at the back
of the church property.
It appeared that nobody really seemed to care. There
were no warning signs put up that the pond was con-
taminated with raw sewage. The sewage flowed for a
while, before it was finally stopped.
There was no clean up attempt. All they did was sprin-
kle a little white materiel around the edges of the pond.
I'm not sure what the purpose was of this, but to me, it
certainly did not meet any kind of requirements for a
sewage cleanup spill.
Calling the Sebastian council race
The Sebastian council race, as I see it:
*Bruce Anderson: Missing in action. He doesn't even
know when, or where, council meetings are held.
*Julia Scozzari: She is there, but really not there.
*Andrea Coy: Boy, she is an alpha personality that has
left the military, but is still really there. The problem is
that she is a "do as I say "person, not a "do as I do." She is
hopeful of becoming our mayor. God help us!
*Dale Simchick: He is pro-environment, a do-gooder,
go-getter, smart, and interested in Sebastian and the
environment.
*Eugene Wolff : While he is backed by the Indian River
Neighbors Association, which is not pro-growth, Mr.
Wolf is 'really pro-growth, pro-real estate, and was close
in the last election. He might jist get in.
*Brian Burkeen: He is a good man, a fine upstanding
citizen, but a little slow to the start. He is probably the
best choice for the city.
He needs to get into the race and start moving.

Multi-

property

auction

scheduled
FOR HOMETOWN NEWS
VERO BEACH Ron
Rennick, president of Ron
Rennick Auctions, has
announced that it will be
holding a multi-property
"end of season property
auction," at the Vero Beach
Museum of Art, on Thurs-
day, March 29. Registra-
tion will begin at 5:30 p.m.,
and the Auction will begin
at 6:30 p.m.
Recognizing that today's
real estate market dictates
creative thinking for
homeowners needing to
sell their property, Ren-
nick Auctions has success-
fully tapped in on the
methodology of real estate
auctions, offering a smart
option for those that dis-
cover they need one.
As one of the few certi-
fied and fully licensed auc-
tioneers on the Treasure
Coast, Mr. Rennick found-
ed his company in 1980,
and has since been a
member of the Florida and
National Auctioneers
Association.
Mr. Rennick and his staff
operate single auctions
most every weekend with
sellers fully educated on
the process, and at the
same time, realistic of the
current market. Sales have
been very successful.
Mr. Rennick and his staff
are currently looking for
people who are not only
eager to sell, but those that
are realistic of the current
market and have proper-
ties in good condition in
good locations.
"We are planning to use
June, 2004 as a benchmark
for values, not September,
2005," said Mr. Rennick.
"We feel the price spike of
September, 2004 to Sep-
tember, 2005 was an aber-
ration, and did not accu-
rately reflect normal
supply and demand of the
market," he said.
Rennick Auctions' "end
of season property auc-
tion" is looking to include
luxury homes and villas in
waterfront or beach loca-
tions, oceanfront condo-
miniums, prime commer-
cial properties, office and
apartment buildings as
well as duplexes or triplex-
es.
Serious sellers are invit-
ed to call Ron Rennick
Auctions to be included in
this one-time event.
Inventory of real estate
for auction may be limit-
ed. Deadline to list for this
auction is March 1.

Utilities plants are priority for council candidates


BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
VERO BEACH The
future of city utilities -
and how to rein in their
associated costs will be
a priority when the new
City Council takes office
next month, two candi-
dates declared last week.
The next council will
decide how to handle Vero
Beach's controversial con-
tract with the Florida
Municipal Power Associa-
tion and whether to move
the municipal wastewater
treatment plant away from
the Indian River Lagoon.
Debra Fromang, 57, is
seeking a second two-year
term on the council.
Newcomer Bill Fish, 67,
and veteran candidate
Brian Heady, 59, are also
running.
Two seats will be filled in
the March 13 election.
Council member Bob
Solari, who holds the other
open seat, chose not to
seek another term to focus
on a 2008 County Commis-
sion bid.
At a Taxpayers Associa-
tion of Indian River County
candidate forum on Feb.
14, Mrs. Fromang and Mr.
Fish promised vigilance
about future spending.

Mrs. Fromang supports
moving the wastewater
treatment plant "if and
only if we can get state and
federal funding" to do so,
she said.
Closing the 48-year-old
plant and building a new
one would cost about $100
million.
As a member of the five-
person council, Mr. Fish
said he would "look at
moving the plant if it's eco-
nomically feasible."
Mr. Fish, a retired indus-
trial engineer, told the
audience that his back-
ground made him accus-
tomed to seeking cost-
effective solutions.
Mr. Heady, who was also
invited, had a previous
engagement. He did, how-
ever, send a letter to atten-
dees outlining his posi-
tions.
"If elected. to the City
Council I will not support
any budget which does not
include spending cuts," he
wrote.
Because consultants
were needed to help city
staff members untangle
Vero Beach's contract with
Orlando-based FMPA, the
council spent more money
than was allotted for solv-
ing the contract dispute.
As a result, a task for

Director recounts Hollywood glory


during museum stop


BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
VERO BEACH Orson
Welles, known equally for
his girth and his filmmak-
ing genius, was eating
Fritos by the handful when
he turned to young Peter
Bogdanovich and said:
"You know, you don't gain
weight if nobody sees you
eating."
At the Vero Beach Muse-
um of Art on Feb. 12, Mr.
Bogdanovich, who direct-
ed "Paper Moon," "The
Last Picture Show" and
"Mask," recounted his
snack with Mr. Welles.
About 500 people gath-
ered in the museum's
Doric-columned great hall
to watch snippets of
acclaimed films and hear
stories about the sunset of
Hollywood's golden era.
"That's the wonderful
thing about the movies,"
Mr. Bogdanovich said.
"Giving people little pieces
of time they'll never for-
get."
Wearing a red silk cravat
and his trademark round
glasses, Mr. Bogdanovich,
opened his hour-long talk
with a spot-on imperson-
ation of Alfred Hitchcock,
telling how he met "Hitch"
and his wife for drinks at
New York City's St. Regis
Hotel.


Mr. Bogdanovich, never
much of a drinker, was
nonetheless prodded by
Hitch to gulp down his
frozen daiquiri.
Later, in an elevator, Mr.
Hitchcock told a story that
become increasingly
bloody as more passengers
came aboard ratcheting
up the suspense until the
elevator reached the lobby.
Mr. Bogdanovich, by this
point engrossed in the
story and "completely
fogged" from the daiquiri,
asked Hitch what hap-
pened next.
"Oh, nothing," Mr.
Hitchcock said. "That's just
my elevator story."
Laughter rippled across
the audience.
"That kind of mirth with
mayhem is typical of
Hitchcock," Mr. Bog-
"danovich said.
During the course of his
talk, Mr. Bogdanovich
showed seven film clips,
offering anecdotes about
how accidents, can add
poignancy or humor to the
final product.
In a clip from "Red
River," a 1948 Western star-
ring John Wayne, Mr. Bog-
danovich showed how a
shadow lengthening
across a butte added sub-
tle drama to a funeral
scene.
The filmmaker, Howard


Hawks, was "the coolest
director I've ever met," Mr.
Bogdanovich said.
He also recalled his
friendships with the actors
and directors who created
his favorite films.
John Ford, the master of
the Western, once asked
the inquisitive Mr. Bog-
danovich, "Have you ever
heard of a declarative sen-
tence?"
"The Last Picture Show"
and "Paper Moon" which
earned 10-year-old Tatum
O'Neil an Academy Award
- remain widely
acclaimed, but his last
major film was 1985's
"Mask." Since 2000, Mr.
Bogdanovich has filled a
supporting role on HBO's
"The Sopranos," playing a
psychotherapist.

Following his lecture, Mr.
Bogdanovich answered a
handful of questions,
telling the audience about
young directors he
admires (Wes Anderson)
and Martin Scorsese's
chances for winning an
Oscar this year (likely).
Though his actors have
nabbed statues, Oscar gold
has eluded Mr. Bog-
danovich. Aside from his
two nominations for "The
Last Picture Show," the
academy has snubbed
him.
For that film, Mr. Bog-
danovich recalled how he
cajoled an unenthusiastic
Ben Johnson into his role.
"If you do this picture,
you'll win the Oscar," Mr.
Bogdanovich told him.
"And he did win the Oscar."

The cities agree with the
growth-management
aspects of a charter, but
they want to explore alter-
natives as well, he said.
Commissioners Gary
Wheeler and Peter
O'Bryan, who both attend-
ed the workshop, support a
"starter charter," where
voters would be given con-
trol over the Urban Service
Area boundary and consti-
tutional officers such as
the sheriff and supervisor
of elections would
remain elected positions.
'"As long as voters have a
binding vote on [building]
height and [zoning] densi-
ty," Mr. O'Bryan is open to
charter alternatives, he
said after the meeting.
Ms. O'Hara's presenta-
tion came a month after
the County Commission
heard a charter govern-
ment presentation by Vir-
ginia Delegal, general
counsel for the Florida
Association of Counties.
One of the immediate
effects of enacting a char-
ter, Ms. O'Hara said, would


be felt in municipalities
that are growing and
annexing county land.
"That city loses authority
over annexation," she said.
In Indian River County,
that city would probably be
Fellsmere.
Sara Savage, Fellsmere's
mayor, cut to the growth
debate in everyday terms:
"Personally, I have to go to
Sebastian drive 10 to 12
miles to buy groceries,"
she said after the meeting.
She also dismissed sug-
gestions that her tiny city
would one day resemble
sprawling Port St. Lucie or
Palm Bay.
During the workshop,
Mr. Wheeler insisted the
charter debate was not
designed to limit
Fellsmere's growth, but
rather to examine how that
growth could affect the rest
of the county.
By annexing land,
Fellsmere has grown from
one square mile to eight
square miles in the last five
years.
Ms. O'Hara said a charter
could be amended to
require voter approval
before a city can annex
land, which can alsolead


to friction and, possibly,
lawsuits between the cities
and the county.
Pinellas County munici-
palities spent more than
$100,000 last year to defeat
charter amendments that
would have limited city
powers, Mr. White said.
There are three ways to
initiate a county charter,
though voters make the
final decision each time:
The first, through a spe-
cial act of the legislature,
has received a lukewarm
reception by the county's
Tallahassee delegation.
A charter can also by
drafted by local commis-
sion or with a county ordi-
nance.
Mr. Wheeler said he
prefers handing power to
the county's voters instead
of relying on 30 elected
officials five county com-
missioners and the five
municipal councils to
make future growth deci-
sions.
"I don't think this will be
charter lite for very long,"
Orchid Mayor Richard
Dunlop said. "This could
be 'charter heavy cream' or
'charter sour cream' down
the road."

Commission grants security
house at Gifford Park
GIFFORD County commissioners
decided last week to build a security
house at Gifford Park, voting 5-0 to
award a $127,000 contract to Passage
Island Homes ofVero Beach to build the
1,200-square-foot house.
Teddy Floyd, a popular sheriff's
deputy, will live in the house as part of
an effort to reduce theft and-deter van-
dals.
Victor Hart, president of the county's
chapter of the National Association for
the Advancement of Colored People,


said millions of dollars worth of facili-
ties had been donated to the park, and
that the county needed to protect them.

City moves ahead with plan to
add sewer lines to island
VERO BEACH City officials said at a
Feb. 13 meeting that no plans exist to
extend sewer lines throughout city lim-
its, instead focusing on extending
sewer lines to the barrier island.
The city wants residents to help pay
for the expansion, but will not require
them to hook up the system unless
their septic tanks fail.
The conversion should reduce the
number of pollutants flowing into the
environmentally sensitive Indian River
Lagoon.

That was the one time I really
was not happy being his

I received a rant accusing me
of not caring about diabetics
because I recommend fat-free
half and half. The only fat-free
half and half I recommend at
this time is Land 'Q Lakes. For
some reason, store brands add
sweetner, like coffee creamers,
and they will not do for any
main dish.
All dairy products contain
sugar, that's the way the milk
comes from the cow. That sugar
is called lactose. When some-
one is lactose-intolerant,
drinking milk can cause
intense intestinal distress. To
satisfy myself and the ranter, I
checked out all milks and

In February, I always think
more about my dad, William R.

A while ago, I came across a

He passed away more than 16
years ago, but he lives on both

was an exceptional artist
almost from birth, and my

me I couldn't think of anything,
but it must have been some-
thing real bad to be called into
the principal's office. Finally, I
was sitting facing this "larger

terrified me to the core.

"Yes."

Venus in Aries gives you an edge in the heart

gives you an edge, it is wise to take it to heart and
use it to enhance your life. Do something for your-
self or others you have wanted to do for awhile
but didn't have the extra boost to actually do it.
Now you do. It could be something as simple as

creams. Whole, 2 percent, 1
percent and skim milk all
contain 12 grams of sugar per 1
cup.
Two tablespoons of half and
half contain 1 gram of sugar, 2
tablespoons of fat-free half and
half contain 2 grams of sugar.
Not a bad tradeoff, since
diabetics must watch the fat
and cholesterol as well as
sugar. An interesting fact;
heavy whipping cream is
sugar-free. It appears that the
sugar in milk is only in the
milk, not the cream.
Today we're going to treat
ourselves to Alfredo sauce in

Your accumulated experience and wisdom con-

on feelings and instincts you tap into the higher
power. This gives you an edge. You then make-
wise choices rather than hasty ones. The choice is
up to you. Get in sync with divine timing and act

endless when you have that gut feeling that all is

found in fruits such as
apples, grapes and citrus
products. More research is
planned.

Belly fat linked
to colon cancer risk

A large European study
has concluded that men
and women with more
abdominal fat were more
likely to develop colon
cancer than those who
were trimmer around the
middle.
Both men and women
with the largest waist-to-
hip ratios were more than
50 percent more likely to
develop colon cancer.
Researchers believe
abdominal fat is "metabol-
ically active" and may
release hormones that
affect cell growth, includ-
ing cancer cells.
The report was pub-
lished in the "Journal of
the National Cancer
Institute," July 5, 2006
issue.

There you have it; useful
information you can
discuss with your health
care provider. As with all
health news, you need to
take it with the proverbial
grain of salt, and recognize
that the results may be
from one study and may
not hold up when further
study is done.
It's good to get your
health news, as well as
your diet, from a wide
variety of sources.

and a year down the road.
You can only live one day at a
time, but move toward the
future like the earth, does.
This plan helps get things
ready in an orderly manner,
so you don't let everything
pile up at the last minute.
Install this goal-oriented plan
in the hearts of others
around you and life will work
as smoothly as a clock.

Virgo-Aug. 23-Sept. 22
Don't fret over recent strug-
gles. Mercury .in retrograde
sometimes lays the best
plans asunder. Soon the
energy will be flowing in a
positive direction again and
you will find yourself continu-
ing on and achieving your
goals better than ever. Don't
put all your faith in humans.
Instead, go within, listen to
and trust your heart and
instincts, and let your move-
ment and decisions be guid-
ed by supreme intelligence. It
will never let you down,
when you trust it and go with
the flow.

Libra-Sept. 23-Oc. 22
Your deep well of energy and
insight into life continues to
amaze. Where does this
super consciousness come
from? From the core of your
heart and soul self, of course.
You will always survive life's
challenges because of this,
inner core of strength. It's
been living in you from birth
and is your strongest gift.
Continue to go in and move
it to even greater heights of
creativity. You save a lot of
time and energy when you
just let it go. Let your passion
guide you and all will be well.

Scorpio-Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Your physical and emotional
health rest on your ability to
search for and find meaning
and purpose in your daily life.
Stress and imbalance will
wear you down and burn you
out if you don't find this bal-
ance on a daily basis. If you


don't take care of you first,
you will usually not allow
anyone else to take care of
you. You are a strong sign,
but even the strongest grow
weary without regular rest
and renewal. Thinking happy
thoughts is the place to start.
A happy Scorpio is a healthy
Scorpio.

Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Say this out loud upon aris-
ing, "The universe is my
source of life. I begin each
new day thankful to be alive
and I rejoice in the endless
possibilities. I will make the
most of it. Then when I stop
my labor I will make time for
pleasure, joy and sharing my
ideals with those I love. This
renews my spirit, gives me
inner strength, and courage
to face tomorrow as another
bright new day filled with
even more exciting new
adventures and blessings.
Mine is truly a blessed life."

Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Measure the quality of your
life by the happiness and joy
you feel in your heart. You
were born independent by
nature, but you are happiest
when you are being of serv-
ice to others. Everyone gains
strength from your light and
presence. It keeps your family
bonds strong as well. It gives
you much personal power in
the workplace. You are a
well-loved and trusted friend.
Be open to receive as well as
give and the universe will
richly reward you for a life
well lived.

Aquarius-Jan. 20-Feb. 18
When you are relaxed, cen-
tered and focused, it is easy
for you to take action to turn
inspired ideas into truthful
realities. Very few others have
this innate gift, depth and
concentration. You were born
with these gifts. Continue to
focus and-use them. Because
of this, you are always creat-
ing new ways to help your-
self, family and friends. Doing
great things with your life
continues to fulfill that prom-


ise. Your deep sense of pur-
pose shows itself continually
in 'all your efforts. Just look
around you at your victories.

Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
Rise up from your slumber
and continue to transform
yourself into the free-spirited
beautiful, creative soul that
you truly are. Let go of any
bonds of the past that may
be trying to sidetrack you.
Open up and move on to all
that you came here to
become. Remove anything
from life that doesn't reflect
your great inner beauty.
Refuse to accept mediocrity
in life. You are so close to
realizing your higher dreams.
It's your time in the zodiac.
Go for the gold.

Know path, file names to access files


This week, I thought
I would talk about
how everything in
the computer is "con-
nected."
By connected, I don't
mean by wires and other
mechanical means, but
internally, through the
computer's filing system.
Often I hear people say
that a particular file
(picture or text) "is in my
word processor," or "it's

in my e-mail program."
That implies that the
file in question can be
accessed only with that
particular program. Not
so.
Let me explain.
Each program on your
computer is capable of
opening different types
of files. For instance,
word processors, such as
Microsoft Word or Word
Perfect are for working
with "text" files while
photo editors, such as
Paint Shop Pro and
Adobe Photo Shop are
just the thing for working
with pictures.
The files themselves are
not stored within the
program; they are stored
somewhere on the hard
drive available to any
program capable of
working with them. That
means you can "share"
files, often times with
many other programs. All
you really need to know
is where on your hard
drive the files really do
live.
A typical file name
might look like this:
c: \files\filename.doc,
complete with its "path"
on the hard drive. The
path tells how to get to a
files location on the hard
drive. Let's take a closer
look:
The c:\ indicates what
drive the file is stored on.
Each disk drive, your
floppy drive (typically a:),
your hard drive (c:), and
your CD Rom (typically
d:) has a letter assigned
to it. This is how to tell


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This
the computer what drive
you are working with.
The next part of our
path, "files\", is a "folder"
or "directory."
Just like the manila
folders you use in a real
file cabinet keep files
organized, directories on
your computer organize
your computer files. Each
directory is separated by
a back slash (\) and you
can have directories'
within directories.
The last part of our path
is the actual file name. A
typical file name comes
in two parts, the name, a
dot and the extension.
The name is what we call
the file when we saved it
(a fairly important thing
to note when saving).
The extension tells the
computer what kind of
file it is, so it knows what
kind of program can
open it.
Once you know the
path to a particular file,
you can access it from
most of your favorite
programs.
For instance, say you
got a picture e-mailed to


you and you want to use
that picture in a letter
you are writing with your
word processor. The first
step in getting the pic-
ture into your letter
happens when you save
the picture from e-mail.
Right click the picture
and click "save." Then
(real important) note the
full path and file name
when you save it and you
can access it anytime.
When you'are ready to
import your picture into
your letter, use the
"insert" menu (typical on
most word processors) to
load your picture. When
the dialogue box comes
up asking what file you
want to insert, type in the
file's full path and file-
name.
Start with the drive
letter, end with the file
name (plus the exten-
sion), separate the
directories (folders) with
back slashes and then
click "OK." You should
have your picture insert-
ed into your letter.
As you can see, the path
and file names are
enormously important.
So often I hear, "it's on
my hard drive, but I don't
know where."
If you pay attention to
what name and directory
the file is saved under
when you save it, you
won't have this problem.
Until next week, cheers.

From page B1
bad for you as biting into a
stick of butter.
There is no acceptable
substitute for imported
Parmesan and Romano
cheeses. Yes there is fat,
but if all other ingredients
are fat-free you will still
have an allowable dinner.
Buy the cheese in a meat
market or Italian deli, save
money and they will grate
it for you free.
Remember, the cheese
used in an Alfredo sauce
will determine the quality
of the finished product.
Enjoy and see you next
week!

FETTUCCINE
ALFREDO
(Serves 4 to 6)

Years ago, I had a friend
who was a chef and he
showed me how they
made this decadent dish in
his restaurant. Not only
did he use almost half a
stick of butter for each
serving, along with the
cream and cheese, he also
thickened it with egg yolk.
Egg yolk is often used as
a thickening agent, but it is
tricky to work with. I do
not use egg yolk, not only
because it adds more fat
and cholesterol, but also
because I've found a little
cornstarch blended with
water or milk will accom-
plish the same thing with
much less effort.

1 pound fettuccine
1 pint heavy cream or
light cream
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 to 3/4cup imported
Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper
1 level tablespoon
cornstarch (optional)


www.HometownNewsOL.com


1/4 cup milk (optional)

Bring a large pot of water
to a boil, adding a little
salt and a little oil to
prevent noodles from
sticking together. Place
noodles in slowly, stirring
constantly as you do so.
Cook until noodles are "al
dente."
In a medium size
saucepan, melt butter. Add
cream. Raise heat to
medium high and cook
until cream reduces and
becomes the consistency
of lightly whipped cream.
Add cheese and season
with salt and pepper. Be
sure to stir often to prevent
sticking.
If you want a very thick
sauce, mix about 1/4 cup
of milk with cornstarch;
heat until thickened and
add to the cream mixture.
Drain fettuccine and
place in deep bowl. Top
with the sauce and enjoy.
Be sure to have extra
Parmesan cheese available
to be passed around.

FETTUCCINE
ALFREDO, LOW-FAT
(Serves 4 to 6)

1 pound fettuccine
2 tablespoons butter,
light butter or 4 table-
spoons butter substitute*
1 cup fat-free sour cream
1 cup evaporated skim
milk, undiluted or (fat-
free half and half)**
1/2-to 3/4-cup imported
Parmesan cheese

Cook fettuccine accord-
ing to package directions
following instructions in
recipe for regular Fettuc-
cine Alfredo;
In medium size
saucepan, melt butter.
Add remaining ingredi-
ents, season with salt and
pepper and whisk until


smooth.
Warm and do not boil.
Drain pasta and place in
deep bowl. Pour on sauce.
Serve with extra cheese.
*Add to cookbook.
**Add to cookbook.

CRAB ALFREDO
(NIB)
LOW-FAT

Recently I purchased a
6-ounce can of crabmeat.
Using what I had on hand I
created a sauce every bit as
good as the restaurant
version without the fat.
You can make the regular
Alfredo sauce and add the
crab or you can try it my
way. I use the butter
substitute called Smart
Balance. Any butter
substitute may be used.
Since the half and half is
fat-free, I add a little extra
butter substitute.

5 tablespoons butter
substitute
2 cups fat-free half and
half
1 tablespoon cornstarch
dissolved in a little water
3/4 cup grated, Parme-
san cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
1 6 ounce can crab meat,
drained and blotted with
paper towels
3/4 pound fettuccini
noodles
1 teaspoon oil

Bring a large pot of water
to a boil adding a little salt
and the oil. Place noodles
in slowly, stirring con-
stantly in the beginning to
prevent them from stick-
ing together.
Meanwhile, in a medium
saucepan, melt butter
substitute, add 1 cup
fat/free half and half.
Whisking briskly bring to a
low boil. Add cornstarch
blend, stirring constantly.


Lower heat and whisk in
remaining cream until
thickened. Stir in cheese
and season with salt and
pepper to taste. Add crab,
set aside.
Top cooked pasta with
sauce and enjoy. Lobster
or shrimp can be substi-.
tuted.

CARBONERA
(Serves 4)

This is a very high-fat
dish and there's no way to
make it low-fat. Make it
rarely and enjoy it
immensely.

1/4 pound Italian
sausage
1/4 pound ham, thinly
sliced-
4-6 tablespoon butter*
1/2 cup chopped fresh


Italian parsley
Salt and pepper
3 eggs, well beaten
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
Cheese
1/2 to 3/4 pound
spaghetti
*Add 6 to cookbook

Remove sausage from
casing and crumble.
Coarsely chop ham. Melt 2
tablespoons butter in a
skillet, add sausage and
half the ham. Cook for
about 10 minutes until
sausage is browned. Stir in
remaining ham. Turn off
heat.
Cook pasta, place in
serving dish, add meat
mixture and drippings,
remaining butter, parsley
and a little salt and pepper.
Mix well.
Pour in eggs all at once
and quickly mix the


spaghetti to coat well and
cook the eggs. Mix in
Parmesan cheese and
serve.
Make serving this dish an
event. Once the pasta is :
cooked, assemble it at the'
table.
When a recipe is not in my
cookbook it will have (NIB)

visions, inspirations and
fantasies. Soon it will be
spring, the time of new
beginnings. The earth will
soon be showing signs of
coming alive and renewing
all forms of life.
This is because of the
supreme law of the circle
of life: what we sow, we
reap. What goes around
the circle comes back
around to the source
multiplied. This is the law
of second chances. No
matter what happened to
the past, we can learn from
it, bless it for what it
taught us, forgive it when
needed, release it, move
on and grow a new and
better life.
What is the secret to
accomplishing all this?
There is a genius living in
all human souls since
birth, yearning to be set
free. Humans have the
ability to influence the
subconscious mind and
create physical realities
from ideas and visions
when we use this awesome
power.
Everything we create first
begins in the form of a
thought or idea in the
mind. We create nothing
that has not first been
conceived in thought.
When we release the
imagination living in the
soul we begin to assemble
plans and purposes that
lead to success in our
health, relationships,
talents and material
wealth. Thoughts created
in the conscious mind
with the help of the
imagination, are like seeds
ready to be planted in the
subconscious mind, ready
to attract the necessary
energy that brings them
into physical reality. The
process is the same as a
child being born.

Teacher is ready


to hit the trails


BY NATASHA CARTER
Staff writer
An Indian River County
teacher will soon be going
to Alaska to participate in
a 1,150-mile dog sled race.
This trip is a result of her
being selected in April for
the Wells Fargo Teacher on
the Trail program.
The teacher on the trail
program was initiated in
1999, and now receives
national attention.
Mrs. Slade will go to
Alaska and be a part of the
1,150-mile Iditarod Sled
Dog Race.
"I believe this is a hook
to stimulate learning. This
is a unique way of provid-
ing and connecting learn-
ing," Mrs. Slade said.
She will spend five
weeks teaching, writing
lesson plans as well as
assisting mushers with
dogs.
Students and educators
will be able to access her
plans and experiences via
Internet.
The entire experience


will be shared everyday
throughout classrooms in
Alaska.
She initially got into the
program by attending the
2005 Summer Iditarod
Professional Development
Conference for Educators
and Fans.
She then was a presen-
ter, along with two other
finalists, at the 2006 Win-
ter Conference for Educa-
tors, where each finalist
participated in the Iditar-
od Challenge project that
required them to demon-
strate their skills and abili-
ties in a variety of areas.
"I found out I was the
teacher selected in April
2006," she said.
Mrs. Slade has been a
teacher for 17 years and is
now serving as a math and
science integration
teacher at Thompson Ele-
mentary School in Vero
Beach.
Mrs..Slade spends time
before the big race travel-
ing Florida to educate stu-

7 deadly mistakes that will
cost you thousands when you
sell your home!


VERO BEACH A new
report has just been
released which reveals 7
costly mistakes that
most homeowners make
when selling their home,
and a 9 Step System that
can help you sell your
home fast and for the
most amount of money.
This industry report
shows clearly how the
traditional ways of sell-
ing homes have become
increasingly less and less
effective in today's mar-
ket. The fact of the mat-
ter is that fully three
quarters of homesellers
don't get what they want
for their home and
become disillusioned
and worse financially
disadvantaged when
they put their home on


the market.
As this report uncov-
ers, most homesellers
make 7 deadly mistakes
that cost them literally
thousands of dollars.
The good news is that
each and every one of
those mistakes is entire-
ly preventable.
In answer to this
issue, industry insiders
have prepared a free
special report entitled
"The 9 Step System to
Get Your Home Sold Fast
and For Top Dollar".
To hear a brief record-
ed message about how
to order your free copy
of this report, call 1-888-
417-2513 and enter ID
#1000. You can call any-
time, 24 hours a day,
7 days a week.

money for your home.

New National Pan-Hellenic Council


chapter formed on the Treasure Coast


BY NATASHA CARTER
Staff writer
The National Pan- Hel-
lenic Council, an organiza-
tion founded during an era
when black college stu-
dents were denied essen-
tial rights and privileges
offered to other college stu-
dents, has chartered chap-
ter for the Treasure Coast.
In the past, racism pre-
vented blacks on histori-
cally white campuses from
joining general fraternities
and sororities.
As a result, black stu-
dents, on four main cam-
puses formed sororities
and fraternities that
extended a welcome to all.
Howard University in
Washington D.C., Cornell
University in New York,
Indiana University in
Bloomington, Ind., and


Morgan State University in
Baltimore, Md. were all the
origin of at least one of the
organizations that decided
to break the mold and ven-
ture out alone.
The National Pan-Hel-
lenic Council was founded
in 1930 at Howard Univer-
sity in Washington, D.C., as
an umbrella organization
for historically black, inter-
national Greek letter frater-
nities and sororities.
Recently, the NPHC held
the chartering ceremony at
Fort Pierce Magnet School
.of the Arts, which was offi-
cially deemed the first
chapter for the Treasure
Coast.
The NPHC was incorpo-
rated in 1937 and wel-
comed its first national
office in 1987.
"We decided that a lot of
us weren't receiving notice


of events each organization
held so, this was a great
solution if were going to
work together collectively,"
said municipal court Judge
Ralph Flowers.
Nine organizations have
pledged to devote their col-
lective resources and serv-
ices to enhance their com-
munities throughout the
nation and world.
There are currently 1.5
million undergraduate and
graduate members making
it the largest black interna-
tional organization.
This organization strives
to excel in community
service and focuses on
educational, economic and
cultural matters in com-
munities.
The council consists of
members of Alpha Kappa
Alpha Sorority, Alpha Phi
Alpha Fraternity, Delta


Sigma Theta Sorority, Zeta
Phi Beta Sorority, Kappa
Alpha Psi Fraternity, Sigma
Gamma Rho Sorority,
Omega Psi Phi Fraternity,
and Phi Beta Sigma Frater-
nity.
Gustava Hussain, a
member of Alpha Kappa
Alpha Sorority, first organ-
ized the National Pan Hel-
lenic Council of the Trea-
sure Coast during the early
60's, but no charter was
established.
Later, in August 2006,
representatives' from all
eight Greek organizations
decided to make the coun-
cil official so that they
would be able to function
as a subunit of the council.
"If we all work together
their will be a positive
effect," said Valerie Brant-
Wilson, president of the
Treasure Coast council.

TRAVEL


Discovering the magic of Morocco


Editor's note: This is part
one of a two-part series.
My story of last
winter's trip to
Morocco begins
at the end.
On our last day, I
stopped at a merchant's
shop to ask a price on a
basket. Out of the blue he
said to me, "That's an
American accent, isn't it?" I
said "yes." and he said, "It's
nice to hear an American
accent again. I've barely
heard one in four years."
The implication wasn't
lost on me, he meant since
-Sept. 11, 2001. It hit me
that Americans had
probably not traveled to
Morocco much since then,
which made me sad.
As for me, I was thrilled
that I had come, like all the
other people in our group.
We each vowed to spread
the word about Morocco,
and I guess that's what I'm
doing now.
Our tour began at JFK
where we met Adam,
owner of Oussaden Tours,
and boarded our Royal Air
Maroc flight to Casablan-
ca. The prices were great
and we flew there in seven
hours, about as long as it
took for our luggage to
appear at baggage claim,
but c'est la vie. Note: brush
up on your French a bit (I
didn't) before going to
Morocco. It was once a
French colony and a few
words spoken while
bargaining helps. Other-
wise, English is widely
spoken.
, So with luggage in hand,
we drove from Casablanca
to our hotel in Rabat. I've
spent a lot of time in the
Arab world and expected
everything to like
Cairo. To my delight,
Morocco was surprisingly
lush and green, vibrant
and upbeat. The deserts
would come later, But I
was immediately
impressed.
By afternoon we were

out exploring Rabat, an
Imperial City. We toured
the palace, the impressive
mausoleum of King
Mohammed V, akasbah
and then stopped for mint
tea at a seaside caf6. So
much for my first day in
Morocco, I loved it! The
next morning we-drove
through the countryside,
past small villages towards
Fez, another Imperial City.
Before getting there, we
made many stops along
the way. Our first was at
the Roman ruins of
Volubilis. We strolled
through the historic city,
today home to cranes
nesting atop the ancient
columns. From there we
went to the village of
Moulay Idriss, the spiritual
center of Sufism. I loved it
there and would have
stayed longer, but our
guide, Ahmed, pressed on.
At first he was tough, but
eventually he became
great fun and a friend.


Next we drove to the
walled city of Menkes and
finally on to Fez.
Once we arrived, every-
body went to the hotel but
me. Because I am a tour
leader and writer, Adam
had something special for
me to try. I was driven into
the Old City to stay at the
Elyacout Riad instead. I
learned that a riad is an
elegant Victorian home
converted into a hotel. It
was dark as we walked
down a littered alley and I


thought, where am I going?
I kept reminding myself
that I'm an intrepid
traveler and this would be
OK. Then we suddenly
turned a corner and an
elaborate wooden door
appeared.
This looked enticing and
when we opened the door,
I was awestruck. We
entered the riad's court-
yard filled with velvet
couches, ornate tables,

"Choices" was the topic
of a heartfelt speech deliv-
ered for youth at the Dasie
Bridgewater Hope Center
last week.
Henry "Hank" Carter,
founder and president of
Wheelchair. Charities,
spoke about staying out of


trouble, helping others and
giving back three topics
he knows very well.
The native Floridian
moved to NewYork at age 6
and was glad to come back
to speak with youth.
"This is my first visit to
Florida in 30 years," Mr.
Carter said.
During his youth in New
York City's Queens Bridge
projects, Mr. Carter made
bad choices, serving as the
president of a gang, but left
it behind to enlist in the
United States Army.
"God grabbed a hold of
me," he said.
After the Army, Mr.
Carter became a teller at
Long Island Savings Bank


in New York and 30 years
later the senior executive
vice president of the bank.
Mr. Carter founded
Wheelchair Charities in
1972 after his best friend
was shot on the streets Of
New York City and was par-
alyzed.
He had no money to pur-
chase a wheelchair. Mr.
Carter organized a basket-
ball game to raise money
and made $5,000.
Since then, he has been
dedicating his time to pro-
viding more opportunities
and funding for the charity.
The game has evolved
into a huge annual Pro-
,Game with professional
basketball players held at


Madison Square Gardens
with many NBA superstars.
All proceeds go to benefit
paraplegic and quadriple-
gic patients at the Coler-
Goldwater Memorial Hos-
pital.
This particular event has
become bigger gaining
sponsorship from compa-
nies like Nike, the National
Basketball Association,
Washington Mutual Bank
and Health Insurance Plan
of NewYork.
Seventy percent of the
patients in Coler-Goldwa-
ter ,Specialty Hospital are
gunshot wound victims.

to appear. I got to pick out
my own bedroom and I
chose one with a carved
canopy bed and ornate silk
pillows all around. I was in
heaven!
Then it was time for-
dinner, prepared only for
me. I sat by the fire at a
table strewn with rose
petals and had so many
courses I lost count. There
was hummus and pureed
dips, chicken with
almonds, pigeon pie,
couscous, beef with
prunes, sliced oranges with
cinnamon, Moroccan wine
and more. I felt rather


embarrassed, but I sooi
realized I was the first
customer in this newly
renovated riad. I certain

Add lots of color with azaleas


Let's talk about azaleas. These
colorful plants are always a sure
sign of spring when they burst into
full color. Even though our spring is still
a few weeks away, now is the time to
start planning where you want to show
off these heavy bloomers.
You should consider a location where
the plants will only receive filtered light.
They do not like full direct sun all day.
An area under the eaves of your house
or an area that receives faltered sun
through pine trees would be an excel-
lent location.
If you want your plants to live a long
and healthy life, proper soil is the key. *
Azaleas like a soil that is acidic with a ph
of around 5.5. Generally, soil that is
exposed to pine needles will be natural-
ly acidic in nature and when mixed with,
a good organic soil, you have an excel-
lent planting medium to give your
plants a good start.
You should also be sure your plants are
in a well-drained area so they won't sit in
water for long periods. Preparing a raised
bed is the best assurance for good
drainage.
Once the soil is properly prepared, you'll
want to apply a slow-release fertilizer
directly to the soil. Osmocote for acid-
loving plants is an excellent choice.
Once you have your azaleas planted and
established, the rest is easy. The beauty of
these plants is that they require very little
maintenance. They are not heavy feeders
and thus they do not need to be fertilized
on a regular basis. The best time for
feeding is after they have finished their
bloom cycle in the spring. Always use a
slow-release fertilizer and do not let the
fertilizer come into direct contact with the
roots.
OK, you've got your plants established,
fertilized and your soil is perfect, so what's
next?


Garden Nook

with Joe Zelenak

The next step is to ensure that your
plants bloom year after year. One of the
best ways to ensure this is by proper
pruning. You always want to prune and
shape your plants right after they have
finished blooming. Don't wait until the
dead of summer to do this, or you risk
loosing flowers next season.
Even though azaleas have a fairly short
bloom cycle, the plants stay healthy and
green all year long. Because of this they
are considered evergreens. This is what
makes them such a desirable choice for a
year round plant. Just to summarize,
azaleas are heavy bloomers, they are easy
to take of and do very well in both winter
cold and hot summers, provided they are
in filtered sunlight.

From page B 10


ing dedication to physical-
ly challenged individuals,
more than $10 million has
been raised for the hospi-
tal.
"It's all about God. He
put me in the position to
do the right thing." Mr.
Carter said.
In 2004, the health and
hospitals corporation's
board of directors named
the center The Henry
"Hank" Carter Rehabilita-
tion Center.
Wheelchair Charities.
purchases motorized
wheelchairs, speech reha-
bilitation equipment, suc-
tion machines and other
devices for the enhance-
ment of patients.
Wheelchair Charities
raises more money than
any other wheelchair char-
ity for city and state hospi-
tals in the country, Mr.
Carter said.
In 2008 Wheelchair Char-
ities Inc. will celebrate its
35th anniversary.
Mr. Carter practices what,
he preaches when it comes
to his big fundraiser.
None of the players in
the game whether it be
high school students or
NBA players are allowed to
play without visiting the :
hospital first.
Deals like this made Mr.
Carter the inspirational
speaker at the Dasie Hope
center.
"He let us know to keep
God in your hearts. Do
what you think is right and
that everyone can do bet-
ter," said Kudarie Somaru,
a senior at Saint Edwards
upper school.
Mr. Carter encouraged
all of the kids to make good


grades, as well as choices.
"Choices, doing the right
thing, and knowing things
won't come easy, is what I
wanted to leave the youth
with," Mr. Carter said.
Most 'of his youth audi-
ence agreed that Mr. Carter
is living proof that one can
turn around if one is going
in the wrong direction.
"He let us know that we
should stay out of trouble,
don't join gangs and to
keep our grades up." said
Joshua Pittman
A friend of Mr. Carter
agreed.
"He is a religious man.
He knows it's not about
him," said Jay Conefry,
longtime friend and former
Long Island Savings Bank
colleague of Mr. Carter.
Dasie Bridgewater Hope
staff agreed.
"As we celebrate Black
History Month at Dasie
Hope, we are proud to have
an African-American role
model visit the center,"
said Verna Wright, execu-
tive director.

Mulching prevents water loss


Mulch can help
you save water.
This may seem unlikely,
but it's true. A benefit of
mulch, which-is any
material that is placed on
the soil surface to protect
and improve an area, is to
prevent water loss through
evaporation from the soil.
Mulch prevents this loss
by covering the surface
and creating a barrier that
holds in the water where
our plants need it. In order
to get the maximum water
savings from mulch, there
are a few things to consid-
er.

What kind of
mulch to use
There are many different
types of organic mulch
available and each has
pros and cons. ,
I'll briefly discuss three
kinds. The most popular
type is cypress mulch
because it lasts a long time
and has a nice brown
color.
This mulch type does a
good job buffering the soil
against water loss when
the mulch is completely
wet. However, dry cypress
mulch repels water, which
makes it difficult to wet.
Another down side is
that it may decrease the
amount of water reaching
plant roots due to its high
water holding capacity.
Finally, cypress trees are
slow growing and provide
an important ecological
service by filtering water
and providing habitat for
wildlife. As the demand for
cypress mulch increases,
our cypress forests
decrease.
Pine bark is another
popular kind of mulch
Because its dark color is


JANET BARGAR
Water quality agent
very attractive in the
landscape.
The larger size nuggets
(1.5 to 3 inches big) last
longer and provide better
weed control than smaller
nuggets. A negative of pine
bark mulch is that it can
float away during large
rainstorms.
A third option is straw.
This can be more econom-
ical than the other
mulches, but it isn't as
attractive and breaks
down quickly. In addition,
it may contain seeds that
become weeds in your
landscape.
If you would like to
'minimize your mulching
efforts, then inorganic
mulch may be the best
Option for you. Gravel and
pebbles are permanent,
fireproof, and have more
color options.
J The one bit of caution
with this type is that it can
create a very hot land-,
scape environment since
iit reflects solar radiation.
Plastic film is useful, but
clear film will allow weed
growth because light is
able to penetrate through.
Plastic film should not
be used in areas that have
poorly drained soil
because the soil will
remain too wet, which
may lead to root diseases.

Sample ballots are

it with them when they
vote.

Questions regarding
election-related issues
should be directed to the
Supervisor of Elections'
office at (772) 226-3440.


Another inorganic
mulch option is woven
ground cloth, which
allows water and air to
move through it. The
disadvantage is that it
doesn't suppress weed
growth and water loss.
Woven cloth must be used
in combination with
another mulching materi-
al to get the best effect.

How to mulch

Since mulch holds
moisture in, the material
must be properly applied
so it does not harm the
plants.
When applying a layer
of mulch to plant beds,
keep the mulch one to
two inches away from
trunks and stems of
plants.
Encircle individual trees
with mulch that is two
feet in diameter for every
inch of trunk diameter. As
the tree grows, increase
the mulched area. The
mulch should also be
kept 1- to 2-inches away


from the trunk.

How much to apply

This depends on the type
you choose. Apply most
wood and bark mulches
two to three inches deep.
Do not apply more
because this type contains
a lot of fine particles that
can suffocate plant roots if
applied too deep.
Pine straw and pine
nuggets can be applied up
to four inches deep since it
allows for more air flow.
After applying the mulch
of your choice, monitor it
occasionally looking for
decomposition, and add
more where it is needed.
Mulch is a great way to

FOR HOMETOWN NEWS
VERO BEACH The
Mental Health Associa-
tion, a United Way
agency, is heading to the
home stretch in planning
its major fundraiser for
this season.
The latest count is
nearly 400 walkers, com-
prised of individuals,
businesses, philanthro-
pists and children regis-
tered to walk on Feb. 24.
Beginning and ending
at Riverside Park, the Tur-
tle Trek is designed to
bring awareness to the
Mental Health Associa-
tion in a way to "pull peo-
ple out of their shell,"
walk for a good 'cause,
and reach towards sun-
nier skies and more pro-
ductive lives.
Each pre-registered
walker will arrive at
Riverside Park at 7:30
a.m. to receive their
team's t-shirt, pedome-
ters and sunscreen, and
begin stretching in
preparation for the 10-
mile walk, with a four-
mile alternative and a


two-mile route for the
children's team.
A kick-off ceremony
will begin at 8:15 a.m.
with remarks from Mayor
Tom White, and an intro-
duction of other local and
state dignitaries.
Following an official
ribbon cutting, and lead-
ing the line of walkers will
be the color guard from
the Sebastian River High
School Naval Junior
Reserve Officers Training
Corps. The color guard
will walk in cadence from
the Trek's start to Memor-
ial Island, followed by the
singing- of the National
Anthem by the Brown
Singers, and ending with
a bagpiper.
Walkere will wind
through the barrier
island, over the 17th
Street Bridge, north on
Indian River Boulevard,
over the Merrill Barber.
Bridge and end at River-
side Park. Walkers will be
welcomed by cheerlead-
ers from St. Edwards
School at the end of the
walk.
Pit stops along the way


will offer entertainment,
food, drinks and bath-
room facilities.
Eight-foot high flags
will fly intermittently
throughout the route,
and 50 volunteers will
direct people as they walk
in their teams.
The Council on Aging
has provided a van to ride
the route and pick up any
walkers who may wish to
stop, and bring them to
Riverside Park, the site of
the TurtleTrax Communi-
ty Festival.
The TurtleTrax commu-
nity festival will be held
at the conclusion of Tur-
tle Trek by the grand
pavilion gazebos, from 10
a.m. to 2 p.m.
Walkers, and residents
will have an opportunity
to visit with the 15 newly
decorated six- foot tur-
tles, visit artist booths
and enjoy food and drink,
while listening to com-
munity entertainment,
and helping to paint a
collaborative mural rep-
resenting the day's activi-
ties and how they relate
to good mental health.

BY ROBIN RINKE
Staff writer


FORT PIERCE -When a
local radio station
announced it .was hosting
a mass wedding and vow
renewal ceremony for lis-
teners scheduled for Feb.
17, the calls came in and
couples signed up.
"I was in the car when I
heard about the wedding
vow renewal ceremony
and called in on my cell
phone," Tina McKenzie
said.
Mrs. McKenzie said she
and her husband, Ricardo,
had been wanting to renew
their vows for some time.
The couple is about to cel-
ebrate their fifth wedding
anniversary.
This ceremony was good
timing for the Vero Beach
couple.
The McKenzie's were one
of four couples who
renewed their wedding
vows, each having their
own special reason to take
part in the ceremony.
The idea of a wedding
and vow renewal ceremo-
ny came from Fort Pierce
radio station WFLM

"We felt that offering a ceremony like this
would be a great way for the station to create
a deeper sense of community here on the
Treasure Coast."

Ruby Adams
WFLM marketing director


104FM, The Flame. The
station then partnered
with Treasure Kissed Wed-
dings, the Port St. Lucie
beach wedding specialists.
"We felt that offering a
ceremony like this would
be a great way for the sta-
tion to create a deeper
sense of community here
on the Treasure Coast.
That is important to us,"
said Ruby Adams, WFLM
104.7FM marketing direc-
tor.
The station had 55 cou-
ples sign up for the cere-
mony. However, when
temperatures dropped, so
did the attendance. The
four couples who did show
up actually had a picture


perfect day for a wedding.
With the calm, teal-blue
ocean as the backdrop, the
couples walked down four
prepared white sand aisles
to traditional wedding
music. Each couple stood
before their own personal
officiator, while lush and
beautiful tropical foliage
surrounded them along
with garden arches, dol-
phin statues and seashells.
The smiling couples
renewed their vows and
love for one another, while
the crisp air and warm sun
engulfed them.
Once the vows were
renewed all four couples
stepped to the edge of the
shore. Together, on the


count of three, they tossed
a "blessing stone'.' into the
ocean. The stones' 'ripple
effect' on the water sym-
bolized good wishes and
blessings toward the cou-
ples. tAfter the ceremony, a
reception with sandwich-
es, fruit, wedding cake and
refreshments was provided
for the couples. The cere-
mony and reception were
free. Many local business-
es donated gifts and food
for the occasion.
Those attending includ-
ed the four officiators,
Tammy and Glen Pennell,
owners of Treasure Kissed
Weddings, Pastor Vernon
Shazier and Pastor Donald
Davis, the four couples
and the WFLM crew.

FOR HOMETOWN NEWS
VERO BEACH Indian
River National Bank's Plan-
tation Branch staff mem-
bers work hard raising
money for the American
Cancer Society's Relay for
Life.
For seven years, they
have worked with area
farms and animal owners
as the basis for their cam-
paign.
Customers donate
money to help select the
lucky Indian River Nation-
al Bank staff member who
has to kiss a pig, donkey,
skunk, alpaca, Brahma bull
and a goat.
Each year, they have
topped the previous year
in their earnings. The goat,
as an example,. raised
$2,550, and the goal this
year is $3,000.
This year the bank has
selected Bingo, a red Angus
steer, to help raise money
for the American Cancer


Society.
"Bingo was born Dec. 20,
and weighed in at 100
pounds... and growing
more and more every day,"
said Nancy Bernstein,
banking center manager of
the Plantation branch.
"Bingo is the most
adorable red steer in the
world, and by the time
Bingo is kissed in April he
will weigh in at 400
pounds," she said.
At the completion of the
campaign, a celebration
will be held at the Planta-
tion branch office, where
one winner will kiss Bingo.
Indian River National
Bank staff vying for Bingo's
kiss include Vanessa Hugh-
es, operations officer, Jeff
Coleman, customer serv-
ice representative, Darlene
Dollins, vice president,
Sandra Kuchta, lender,
Diane Prentice, lead teller,
Christina Long and Chris
Schaming, tellers, and

Vero Beach lacrosse


gets high marks


Cliff Partlow/staff photographer
Vero Beach High School Fighting Indians lacrosse player Alex Smoote works his way past a defender as he heads toward
the goal during practice last Friday.


BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
VERO BEACH For
Vero Beach boys' lacrosse
coach Jack McEnerney,
educating his kids is at the
top of his agenda.
Winning, he insists, is a
plus.
"I want to win," McEner-
ney said. "But teaching
them the game is the most
important thing."
Last season, McEnerney
did a lot of both. After
struggling to a 5-6 mark in
2005, Vero Beach proved
that they were quick learn-
ers, moving to the head of
the class of Florida
lacrosse.
They raced to a 4-0
mark, winning each game
in dominating fashion.
Included in that stretch
was a 16-3 shellacking of
American Heritage in the
season opener and a 19-12
victory over Oviedo.
Perhaps, most important
for McEnerney and his


squad was a victory over
local rival Saint Edward's -
beating the perennial pow-
erhouse on their home turf
for the first time in the
series' eight-year history.
A season earlier, Saint
Edward's had manhandled
the Indians during their
three contests, including a
17-1 debacle that ended
Vero's season.
In their first match up of
2006, it seemed as if histo-
ry would repeat itself as
Saint Edward's scored first,
but Vero Beach would
respond, netting the next
five goals to go up 5-1 at
halftime.
The Indians would then
cruise to an 8-5 win.
"That's a credit to the
team. playing together,"
McEnerney said. "I'm real-
ly proud of the way they
played."
After a 6-5 setback
against No. 4 Pine Crest,
Vero Beach regrouped and

Vero coach brings commitment to excellence


BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
VERO BEACH While
the Raiders' Al Davis might
have coined the phrase,
"Just win, baby," Vero
Beach baseball coach Jeff
Steinman has brought that
mentality to South Florida.
And unlike his California
counterpart, Steinman
keeps piling on the victo-
ries.


"We've had a lot of good
players and a lot of good
assistant coaches,'" Stein-
man said.
After six head coaches
and just two winning sea-
sons in nine years, Stein-
man took over a Vero
Beach squad in 1988 that
was desperately in need of
stability.
The -native of Logans-
port, Ind., did just that,
going 21-8 in his inaugural


season. In 1989, the team
improved even further, fin-
ishing 22-5. They even col-
lected some hardware, tak-
ing the Cape Coast
Conference and District 11
Championships back to
Vero Beach.
Since then, Steinman
has helped turn Vero
Beach baseball into a pro-
gram of distinction. In 19
seasons, the team has had
20 or more victories an


impressive 13 times.
In 1998, the team made it
to the Elite 8. Five years
later, the Indians advanced
all the way to the Final
Four, going 22-11.
Last season the team fin-
ished 15-11 on the strength
of a senior-laden pitching,
staff headlined by phenom
Alex Cobb. Vero Beach
started off strong, winning
their first two games by a
combined score of 12-4. In


the Snowball Classic Tour-
nament, Cobb and fellow
classmate Harrison Young-
blood combined on a no-
hitter, shutting out
Titusville 1-0 to secure the
win.
However, after racing to
a 5-1 record, the Indians
began to struggle. An 8-6
loss to Fort Pierce Central
on March 13 dropped
them to 6-5.
But just like he had done


throughout his high school
career, Cobb came up big.
Against Eau Gallie two
days later, the right-hander
struck out 17 batters while
scattering four hits over
seven innings. He also
drove in the only run of the
game with a sixth-inning
solo home run.
Cobb would turn in
another gem less than a

Hurricanes blast the competition in Chicago


BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer


VERO BEACH The
weather outside might
have been frigid, but three
local teens helped scorch
the ice at a recent tourna-
ment in Chicago.
The Vero Beach trio, all
members of the Space
Coast Hurricanes out of
Rockledge helped lead
their squad to a perfect 6-0
mark at the Chicago Cup
in January.
"It was a nice experi-'
ence," John Jennings, 16,
said. "It was pretty cold,
but it was a lot of fun."
En route to the title, the
Hurricanes beat two of the
top teams in the country -
the No. 10 Naperville
Sabres from Illinois and
the No. 17 Orchid Lake
Pirates out of Michigan in
the championship game.
"It was awesome," assis-
tant captain Eddie Rosen-
berg, 17, said. "Especially
coming from Florida
everybody thinks no good
hockey teams are down
here.
"We shut them up."
The Pirates gave the
Hurricanes all they could
handle. They scored early,
taking a 1-0 first period
lead. The Hurricanes
would rally, tying the game
up with just four minutes
left in regulation.
"It was a relief," Jennings
said. "To come all that way,
we didn't want to lose."
After two frantic over-
time periods, the game
headed to a shootout to

finally be decided.
Space Coast had three of
their first four players find
the back of the net, with
the Pirates scoring just
once, giving the Hurri-
canes the win.
"We didn't have to have
our fifth players shoot,"
Jennings said. "Our goalie
really played good.
"We put the pucks in the
net early and they didn't."
Winning the champi-
onship was especially
memorable for Rosenberg,
who was named the MVP
of the tournament.
"It was a real honor,"
Rosenberg said. "I thought
I played good."
Taking home the title
helped erase the memories
of a tournament that
ended on a sour note. Last
year, the team traveled to
Nashville, Tenn., for the
Music City Cup, whistling
through the competition
until the championship-
match.
Just like in Chicago, the
game went to a shootout;
only the Hurricanes came
out on the losing end.
Rosenberg said the simi-
lar circumstances resulted
in some anxious moments.
"Everyone remembered
it," Rosenberg said. "We
were really nervous.
"But after we went up 2-
0 in the shootout, it was
over just like that."
The Chicago Cup victory
was just the latest in a suc-
cessful season for the Hur-
ricanes.
Last November, the team
ventured to Fort Laud-


increase flexibility and
improve cardio respiratory
function.
Other benefits include
greater agility, better bal-
ance and coordination as
well as more energy.
There is also less strain
on the bones and joints
due to the near zero gravi-
ty achieved by being in the
water.
The class meets for one
hour and is choreo-
graphed to music.
Classes are held Monday
through Saturday and
meet from 9 to 10 a.m.

a city resident and $4 per

erdale to play in the
Thanksgiving Invitational
Tournament. The Hurri-
canes went undefeated,
winning all five games
including the champi-
onship 3-1.
"We beat the No. 1 team
in Florida," Adam Katz, 15,
said. "We've been able to
compete with the top
teams in Florida"
Space Coast has proven
that recently as well. As
part of the Florida Ama-
teur Hockey League, the
under 16 Midget Minor
team is currently in second
place. They have skated to
victories against some of
the top teams in the state,
including the Florida
Junior Panthers out of
Coral Springs.
"We're the only team
that's beaten them so far,"
Rosenberg said. "We also
tied with them."
The Hurricanes have
excelled all season, and are
in excellent shape with the
state playoffs looming this
weekend in Naples.
If the team is successful,
then it's on to the national
tournament.
"We definitely have a
good chance of winning
it," Rosenberg said.
Part of the team's success
has come from an intimate
knowledge of each other's
skills and playing ability.
"A lot of us have been
playing together for years,"


Rosenberg said. "We've
gotten used to each other.
We work well together."
The trio along with fel-
low teammate and Vero
Beach resident Daniel
Degrazia has known each
other for most of their
lives.
"I've known Eddie since
4 years old," Katz said.
"Daniel since 5. I was on
opposing teams with John
when I was 4 or 5. We
became teammates since I
was 7."
Although they've been
drawn together by their
love of the sport, the
biggest drawback for each
is having to travel so far to
play.
"It would be nice to have
a rink close," Rosenberg
said. "You get used to it
after a while."
Jennings, the team's
leading scorer, agrees.
"It's an hour to drive to
Rockledge," Jennings said.
"But it's worth the drive.
So far, the winning has
helped ease the pain of
traveling, and hopefully
the team's success will lead
to a rink being built locally.
"It's getting pretty popu-
lar," Jennings said. "I've
seen it grow since I've been
in it.
"A lot of people think it's
not competitive. It's actu-
ally pretty competitive.
"I think we're up there
with all the teams in the
United States."

won the rest of their regu-
lar season games, none
being more memorable
than their second victory
over the Pirates in the
inaugural Fighting Indi-
ans' Face Off.
Vero Beach won the
match 12-8, further
cementing their names as
part of Florida's elite.
"We want to try and
build a rivalry without ani-
mosity," McEnerney said.
"\Vf're out there to play
the team,
"If you knock a kid
down, you pick them up.
You eaa be -i, ,,.ei e, but
be fair and honest.
"u'iittle goes a long


way."
The teams would meet
once more in 2006, this
time with the South Flori-
da District 4 Champi-
onship on the line.
Again, the Indians
would prove up to the
challenge, walking away
with a 11-10 overtime win,
moving their record to an
impressive 11-1.
Vero Beach's Cinderella
season would come to an
end however, falling once
again to Pine Crest 9-6 in
the South Florida Regional
semifinals.
"It was disappointing,"
McEnerney said. "It was
the first time we ever got


to the dance. We were one
step away.
"I'm happy the guys
played as hard as they did.
The better team showed
up.,"
The Indians hope to be
belles of the ball again in
2007. They enter the sea-
son in good shape, but
must replace two of its key
players lost to graduation
- Chad Weatherstone and
Andrew Witteck.
"(Chad) was a great
goalie last year," McEner-
ney said. "(Andrew) was
our leading goal scorer last
year.
Looking to step up will
be attacker Alex Smoot.

"He scored the winning

McEnerney said. "He

Another player who will
be called upon to again be
one of Vero's leading scor-

"I expect a lot from

See top players tee it up at the Honda


It's not every week that
we get to see the best
players in the game
close up. Sure, some of you
have those gigantic 60-
inch high-definition
televisions that allow you
to see the sweat bead up
on their foreheads as they
line up a 3-foot putt, but
that isn't quite like being in
the same room.
This week coming up,
Feb. 26 through March 4, is
our opportunity to watch
the best talent on the
planet play the sport we so
love. I'm talking about the
2007 Honda Classic being
held at the PGA National
Resort and Spa.
This will be the first year
the Honda will be played
on the Champions Course
at PGA National. The
Champions Course comes
with a rich history, having
hosted a Ryder Cup, a PGA
Championship and several
Senior PGA Champi-
onships. The Honda has a
rich history of being the
Tour's nomadic tourna-
ment, constantly moving
from one venue to anoth-
er. Perhaps it has finally
found a place to call home.
One thing I know for
certain is the golf course
will be a stern test for
these guys. I had the
pleasure of playing the
course a couple weeks ago
and was pleased to see the
rough growing up very
nicely. Last year, across the
street at Mirasol, as on
many PGA Tour stops,
rough was non-existent.
The world's top players
had little to worry about


JAMES STAMMER
Golf columnist

when their drives missed
the fairway. The deepest
rough I saw on the Sunrise
course was equal to the
first cut at our local
municipal track. It was
hardly a test for players of
this caliber.
This year, all of that
changes. The rough should
be lush and is promised to
be about 4 to inches
deep. If the winds stay up,
we could see some higher-
than-normal scores and a-
leader board filled with the
best names in the busi-
ness.
Jack Nicklaus tweaked
his already tough Bear
Trap (holes 15-17) to test
the players' mental and
physical skills coming
down the stretch.
Other holes have been
lengthened with new tees,
and toughened with added
bunkers guarding the
greens and fairway land-
ing areas. If you want to
take a shortcut on some of
these doglegs, you'll need
to weigh the risk and the
reward before pulling that


driver from the bag.
All of the improvements,
along with the move to
PGA National, promise to
make this the best Honda
Classic ever for players
and patrons. To help
expose our next genera-
tion of golfers to the best
players, children under 15
will be admitted free for
the entire week when
accompanied by an adult.
The Jack Nicklaus Chil-
dren's Hospital Fan Zone
will include several
activities for kids through-
out the week, including a
rock climbing wall, magic
shows, games, a putting
green and swing analysis.
Trick shot master Den-
nis Walters and his trusty
canine sidekick, Benji
Hogan, will host a junior
clinic at 1:30 pm on
Saturday, March 3.
In my opinion, one of the
best days to go to any Tour
event is Tuesday. The pros
are there to practice, play a
few money games among
themselves and even test
out some new equipment
to see if it will make the
bag when the strokes
really count.
Many players will chat
with the galleries on
Tuesday. They are more
likely to give autographs
and are generally much
more relaxed. What I like
best is seeing all the sweet
toys they get to try out.
Nearly every major manu-
facturer and many smaller
ones are on hand to fit
these guys with product. If
one player wants a specific
shaft in a certain head, it

Little League
Registration is ongoing
for the Vero Beach Ameri-
can Little League spring
season.
Registration is for all
age groups including T-
Ball, Rookie League/
Coach Pitch, Minor and
Major Leagues.
All interested must
bring three proofs of resi-


dency. and the child's
birth certificate. The fees
are $75 for the first child
and $50 for each sibling.

Gymnastics
Registration is ongoing
at Leisure Square for a
beginner's gymnastics
class for ages 6 to 12.
The class is intended
for those who have little


or no gymnastics train-
ing.
Basic skills on the floor,
bars, beam, trampoline
and mini-tramp will be
taught.

meets Tuesdays and
Thursday from 4 to 5
p.m. The fee for a city res-
ident is $55. The fee for a

gets done. Some of the
guys hit the course with far
more than the 14-club
limit that the rules state.
Last year I saw some very
unusual putters and tons
of hybrid clubs and
drivers. This year we
should see several pros
testing out the new
"square" drivers to see if
they can find one that will
outperform their current
one.
If you go to the Honda
Classic, and it's very easy
to find, bring your best
walking shoes. The course
is relatively flat and there
are numerous spots to set
up your chair, park your
behind for a few hours and
watch the players come to
you.
Behind the first green is
one good spot. Here the
third green, and tees for
number four and nine are
close by allowing you to
see plenty of action
without venturing too far.
Atop the hill between the
12th and 15th greens is a
prime spot that fills
quickly. You can watch the
approach shots into 12
and see the entire par-3.
15th, along with the 13th
tee.
In the mornings, the best
place to go is the driving
range. Watch the pros
warm up and see just how
seriously they take their
job. There's a lot we can
learn just by observing.
With several ticket
packages available, there
is bound to be one for

Vero Beach High School's
Matt Williams runs out a
hit at the 2007 St. Lucie

month later, tossing a no-
hitter against St. Lucie
West Centennial. He struck
out 15 in the win, giving up
just two walks in the game.
Unfortunately, the
Eagles would get their
revenge, ending Vero's sea-
son with an 8-4 victory in
the District 6-6A semifi-
nals.
In 2007, the biggest
question mark is the team's
strength of a year ago the
pitching staff. Cobb's dom-
inating fastball earned him
a fourth-round selection
by the Tampa Bay Devil
Rays.
Three other hurlers off
the staff also graduated,
leaving Steinman to rely
on a bevy of youngsters to
fill out the rotation. In fact,
Vero pitchers have thrown
just a combined 16 innings
entering this season.
"It will be difficult to


replace Alex Cobb," Stein-
man said. "He had a great
career for us.
"We have some inexperi-
ence on the mound. If a
couple of kids step up,
we'll be' competitive."
Leading the way will be
senior Trevor Funk. After
undergoing "Tommy John
surgery" in March 2005,
Funk was ready for action
toward the end of last sea-
son, but a series of ham-
string problems limited his
action to around 15 games.
Now healthy, Funk looks
to anchorVero's staff.
"He throws pretty hard,"
Steinman said.
Behind Funk will be

an 18 and under Amateur
Athletic Union team.
The sophomore helped
lead the team to a victory
in the Lake Brantley Fall
Showcase, pitching five
innings while allowing just
one run in the Pirates' 3-2
win over the Orlando
Titans in an elimination
game.
"He's a big kid that
throws strikes," Steininan
said. "He gives (oppo-
nents) a left-handed look."
Matt Williams' also
shined at the Showcase,
earning tournament MVP
honors for his efforts.
Transferring from Saint
Edward's, Williams brings
a multidimensional look to
the mound.
"He tries to keep (oppo-
nents) off balance with his
fastball and breaking
pitch," Steinman said.
Williams is also no
slouch at the plate, going
10-for-15 at the Showcase.
Another sophomore,
Matt Clement, looks to put
his past experience to
good use. Last year, as a
member of the Florida
Bombers travel team,
Clement's play in the field
as well as the mound was
exceptional.

15U finals, almost leading
the Bombers to the title.
Clement also closed out
the team's first win of the
tournament and was
scheduled to start the
championship game if the
Bombers had advanced
that far.
After transferring from
Sebastian River late in the
season last year, Clement
wasn't able to see any
action, but Steinman is
looking forward to having
him on the squad.
"He locates real well,"
Steinman said. "He has
good control of his pitches.
"Even though these kids
have not pitched a lot for
us, they do have some
experience.
"Hopefully, they'll sur-
prise some folks."
SA pleasant surprise at
the Preseason Classic in
Tallahassee recently was
the play of Robert Danise.
The right fielder went 5 for
8 over the two games,
including two home runs,
while adding eight RBIs.
Also lighting it up was
leadoff hitter Roberto
Sanchez. The senior short-
stop went 4 for 7 with two
doubles.
"He's our most consis-
tent hitter at the plate,"
Steinman said. "He has a
little more pop in his bat
than most leadoff hitters.
"We should have better
punch in our batting
order."
The Indians got off on
the right foot in the St.
Lucie County Classic. After
falling behind to Lincoln
Park 3-2 in the second
inning, Vero rallied for
three runs in their final
two at-bats to win 5-4.
Clement pitched three
scoreless innings in relief
to get the win.
While Steinman doesn't
know how season 20 will
end up, he hopes it will be
as memorable as the previ-
ous 19.
"I just take it one year at
a time," Steinman said. "I
really love Vero Beach and
the program we've built.
"I don't think I could
coach anywhere else."
