With one year left, fans wonder if

Dodgertown will become ghost town


BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
VERO BEACH Dodgertown is
silent.
The crack of the bat, the excited
murmurs of fans, the hawker call-
ing out "Ice cold beer!" are two
days distant.
Spring training is over, and for
this place's namesake team, it was
a good year, at least according to
attendance figures: Almost 77,000
fans climbed the steps to Holman
Stadium this spring, leaving their
cars in the grass off of Jackie
Robinson Lane to watch the end of
an era.
The Los Angeles Dodgers will
train here for a final time next year.
In 2009, the Dodgers will chris-
ten a new complex in Glendale,
Ariz., a five-hour drive from
-Southern California and a conti-
nent removed from Dodgertown's
verdant practice fields and. unas-
suming bungalows.
This year, attendance was the
fifth highest ever, and it would
have bested the all-time record if
an afternoon downpour hadn't


Pulitzer Prize

winner talks

of Lincoln's

White House

BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
VERO BEACH Doris Kearns
Goodwin, then a young, single Har-
vard graduate student, had caught
the attention of President Lyndon
Johnson's roving eye.
So Mrs. Goodwin, a White House
Fellow during the waning days of his
administration, chattered away
about boyfriends even when she
didn't have one.
The president, Mrs. Goodwin told
her Emerson Center audience, "had
a minor-league Bill Clinton reputa-
tion for womanizing."
Her trepidation grew when the
former president took her to the
shores of a lake on his Texas ranch,
where a spread of wine and cheese
i See PULITZER, A2


washed away the March 16 game
against the Boston Red Sox in the&
third inning.
The irony, of course, is that the
enthusiastic crowds cannot
anchor the Dodgers on the East
Coast anymore. In recent years,
overall attendance has been
lethargic, and among the 9,067
spectators at the Dodgers-Red Sox
match-up, most wore Beantown
red, not Dodger blue.
Dodgers officials, while profess-
ing a love for the city the team has
returned to for 59 years, have said
the team wants to train closer to
its West Coast fans. In Glendale,
the Dodgers will share a soon-to-
be constructed, $80 million stadi-
um with the Chicago White Sox.
"Even though there's tradition
and all that, you have to under-
stand the business end of the
deal," said Nick Gandy, the com-
munications director with the Tal-
lahassee-based Florida Sports
Foundation.
Last November, at a tense Coun-
ty Commission meeting a week
after the Dodgers announced the
Glendale deal, commissioners


added an escape clause to the
team's contract, which runs
through 2021. The team would be
allowed to break its Dodgertown
lease without repaying the $15
million in bonds that Indian River
County owes on the property.
Commissioners, worried the
team could buy the 'site from the
county and then sell the land to
developers, voted unanimously
for the escape clause.
At that meeting, Craig Callan,
the team's vice president for spring
training arid minor league facili-
ties, deflected criticism by asking
audience members if any of them
had lived in Vero Beach for 58
years. None of them had.
"The fact of the matter is, it
makes business sense for a West
Coast team to be on the West
Coast," he said then.
When the Dodgers leave, six
decades of accumulated nostalgia
will be left behind. Roy Campanel-
la Boulevard will remain. So will

Koufax tweaked his fastball and

City


considers


sewer for


island

BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
VERO BEACH In the
Riomar neighborhood, residents
worry that new city sewers could
damage the roots of live oaks
that tower overhead.
In Bethel Isles, they worry that
months of construction would
tear up their tree-lined streets.
And in Bethel Creek, they
worry about the cost of adding
sewer, which could come to
about $20,000 per property
owner.
The message at three public
meetings last week was the
same: No to extending city sew-
ers on the barrier island.

ecqt has been to put sewer in

From page Al


waited on a checkered
tablecloth.
"Doris," he told her.
"More than any other
woman, you remind me of
my mother."
Mrs. Goodwin, an
author, historian and NBC
News analyst, spoke for
nearly 90 minutes on
March 31, drawing two
700-member crowds to
her talks. During her
appearance, part of the
center's Celebrated Speak-
ers Series, Mrs. Goodwin
talked about her Long
Island girlhood, her sto-
ried love of baseball and,
she said, "the man that I
have lived with for the 10
last years": Abraham Lin-
coln.
Her 2005 book, "Team of
Rivals," focused on the
16th president and his
Cabinet, which he filled
with the four men who
had competed against him
for the Republican nomi-
nation in 1860. Though the
president's supporters
warned that his subordi-
nates .would serve their.
own agendas and not his
own, Mr. Lincoln was
adamant.
"Or, as my old friend
Lyndon Johnson might
say, 'It's better to have your
enemies inside the tent
pissing out, than outside
the tent pissing in,'" Mrs.
Goodwin said.
Mrs. Goodwin, 64, who
won a Pulitzer Prize for
"No Ordinary Time," her
1994 account of Franklin


Color
Expert
Maylen


and Eleanor Roosevelt
during World War II, wor-
ried most that she would-
n't be able to talk to Mr.
Lincoln's contemporaries
while conducting her
research.
"With old Abe Lincoln,"
she said, "there'd be no
picnic by the lake to talk to
him."
Instead, she combed
through diary entries and
pored over letters that Mr.
Lincoln and his Cabinet
secretaries sent to one
another, their families and
friends. The writings
allowed Mrs. Goodwin to
piece together the fear and
uncertainty that the men
faced during the bleak
days of the Civil War.
When the president was
angry, Mrs. Goodwin said,
he would write a "hot let-
ter," furineling his anger
through his pen and onto
the page. Then, he would
set the letter aside instead
of sending it.
The insights in those
missives are "not really
what you would expect
from our marble monu-
ment," Mrs. Goodwin said.
To keep his disparate
team together, the presi-
dent shared credit for suc-
cesses with them, but also
bore the brunt of criticism.
'"As a result of that, they
began to feel like they
were part of a team," Mrs.
Goodwin said.

retary of War, Simon

Cameron, bought guns
, that didn't shoot, blind
horses and chintzy knap-
sacks for the Union Army
in the early days of the
conflict, the president
took the blame.
But the president could
not shield Mr. Cameron
from congressional cen-
sure, and the secretary
stepped down.
On the last day of his
life, Mr. Lincoln took his
wife, Mary Todd, on a car-
riage ride around Wash-
ington. Their 11-year-old
son, Willie, had died of
typhoid fever in the mid-
dle of the war, and the
demands of the conflict
had pulled the couple
apart.
"He spent more time
married to his Cabinet
officers than he did to
Mary," Mrs. Goodwin said.
The Lincolns talked
about the traveling they
wanted to do when his
second term ended in
1869. She wanted to visit
Europe; he wanted to see
California. They both
wanted to journey to the
Holy Land.
At the end of her talk,
Mrs. Goodwin told her
audience about the next
president she plans to
profile: Teddy Roosevelt,
another Republican
reformer with a larger-
than-life personality.
"After Lincoln," she said,
"you can't go back to Mil-
lard Fillmore or Franklin
Pierce."

REVIEW
Power plant director to
resign, take Kissimmee post
VERO BEACH Power Plant Director Mike Siefert will
leave his post later this month to become the lead power
plant engineer for the Kissimmee Utility Authority.
Mr. Siefert, 47, plans to resign April 20. When he leaves,
the city will be without its top two electric officials.
Customer Service Manager John Lee has been serving
as the interim electric utilities director while the city
conducts a search for a permanent director.
Mr. Siefert has served as plant director for nearly two
years.
Jim Stevens, the support services manager, will be
appointed the interim plant director when Mr. Siefert
leaves.
Sexton neighbors ask county for land deal
Neighbors of the Sexton family, which the county paid
$12 million last month not to develop its ranch, asked a
county board for a similar arrangement.
Wild Turkey Estates of Vero LLC and Indian River Asso-
ciates own 1,346 acres of agricultural land near the Sex-
tons' 462-acre ranch.
The properties are located north of 26th Street, a few
miles from State Road 60.
Last month, county commissioners paid $12 million
for a "conservation easement" to prevent the Sextons or
future owners from developing the land.
In an 11-2 vote on March 28, the county Land Acquisi-
tion Advisory Committee agreed to look into buying the
Wild Turkey and Indian River Associates properties.
The County Commission will have the final say if any
land is purchased.
Council stays under budget
with training expenses
VERO BEACH The City Council has spent $11,795 of
the $21,000 in its schools and meetings account, keeping
council members within their budget for the first time in
recent years.
The tally includes the budget year from Oct. 1 to Sept.
30.
The account pays for council members who attend
training workshops. The mayor is allotted $5,000, and
each of the four council members is allotted $4,000.
A $9,000 miscellaneous account, which is used to pay
for office supplies and other items, also exists.
During the 2004 and 2005 budget years, the council
spent more than the amount in the account, according
to city records.
When the council overspends from the schools and
meetings account, money is drawn from the miscella-
neous account.

Fraud
From page Al
Vero Beach homes last
year, according to court
'documents.
State records show Mrs.
Bock as the only officer of
Registry Services Inc.
Mrs. Bock also works as a
fundraising officer at the
private Saint Edward's
School in Vero Beach.'
The charges came
about after a Travelers of
Florida insurance investi-
gator checked a bill for
laboratory testing -of a -.
home mold problem
caused by a leaky roof.
Court records show that
the homeowner's bill
from Registry Services
Inc. came to $2,987. The
insurance company
requested a written
explanation for the
charges and copies of test
results.
The Travelers investiga-
tor then contacted the
lab, which said it did riot
perform the test and that
the signature had been
forged on the lab report.
Furthermore, the lab
said that it had worked
for Registry Services Inc.
once before, but that it
was never paid for the
report it prepared,
according to the Division
of Insurance Fraud
report.
In February, state inves-
tigators also contacted
two other Vero Beach
homeowners who hired
Registry Services Inc. to
conduct mold remedia-
tion work.
The Division of Insur-
ance Fraud is now check-
ing if fraudulent lab
reports were used in the
work Registry Services
Inc. performed at these
homes.
Investigators sent let-
ters to Mrs. Bock on Jan. 2
and Jan. 29 advising her
of the investigation and
asking for documents.
They received no
response.
Its address is listed as
505 Beachland Blvd.,
which is a Pak Mail facili-
ty. Mrs. Bock opened a
mailbox there, but the
manager of the facility
told investigators that Mr.
Bock picked up the mail
daily.
Attempts to contact the
Bocks by press time were
unsuccessful.


"We are very sorry to
hear about the allega-
tions against the Bocks,"
Saint Edward's spokes-
woman Elizabeth Thoma-
son said. "Mrs. Bock has
worked at the school for
10 years and her perform-
ance has been stellar."

Water and Sewer Director
Larry Keating. said at the
March 29 meeting. "We're
not trying to force it on
somebody that doesn't

Since last fall, city officials
have been considering a
proposal that would con-
vert septic tanks to city
sewer for parts of the barri-
er island, a project that
would cost about $13.5 mil-
lion.
Officials said that remov-
ing septic tanks could
improve the health of the
Indian River Lagoon.
The availability of state
grant money has also
pushed the project forward.
Last week, officials met
with barrier island residents
to answer questions about
the project.
In March, the city sent out
surveys to barrier island
residents, asking whether
they want sewer in their
neighborhoods.
With the results, the city
will decide the areas where
the project will move ahead.


The City Council has the
final say-so over the expan-
sion.
If approved, the project
would be completed in sev-
eral phases.
To blunt the cost of the
project, the city has applied
for a $1.5 million state
grant.
The city wants to use
grant funding to offset the
cost to property owners by
up to 50 percent, Water and
Sewer Manager Rob Bolton
said.
Without the grants, the
project is estimated to cost
about $20,000 per property
owner, according to city fig-
ures.
"If we don't get the grant,
we're not going to go for-
ward with the project," Mr.
Bolton told residents of the
Bethel Isles neighborhood
during the March 29 meet-
ing.
The next night, Bill
Friesell, who lives on Live
Oak Road, chastised city
officials for making grant
money their reason to
move ahead with the proj-


ect.
Other residents called for
studies that showed their
septic'tanks were polluting
the lagoon.
Though no research has
focused on Vero Beach, Mr.
Bolton said, findings from
other studies conducted
around the state recom-
mend for septic tanks to be
replaced in coastal areas.
The deadline for surveys
is April 15. Once the sur-
veys have been collected,
Jill Grimaldi of Vero Beach-
based Camp, Dresser and
McKee, the city's consult-
ant, will tally the results.
Mr. Bolton said a report
to the City Council would
likely come in May or June.
Opponents to the project
have been vocal.
In Riomar, front lawns
have sprouted, signs that
read: "Save the trees. No
city sewers."
"We're living in Vero
Beach and if I kill an oak
tree I won't be working here
anymore," Mr. Bolton joked
during the March 29 meet-
ing.

Callers are asked to refrain from making slanderous

accuracy.


Response to "pro-life means
more than just words"

I read and re-read this person's rant in last week's paper. I
really, tried to find something that I could agree with in the
position taken. There was nothing found.
I'll go point for point in trying to express my views.
*"Maintaining overpopulation among low-income is to
provide them with a cheap labor force" is absurd.
This isn't the days of slavery, when we needed to "harvest"
strong blacks to bring in the crops.
A fetus is alive onlyin the same sense as a cancer tumor
Sis alive. It is a parasite, not a separate being," is beyond rea-
son.
This person is whacked. Life begins at conception. As soon
as cells begin dividing, there is life. Yes, the mother is the
host, but that doesn't mean life's process hasn't begun.
An acorn isn't a giant oak tree without nutrients, sun, and
water. If any part of the process is denied, it will die.
Should we, of superior intellect, be a part of terminating a
living person?
There was a time when preventing a pregnancy was entire-
ly up to the male. It hasn't been so for many decades.
If you want to have a sexual romp, that's fine, but it no
longer needs to result in a pregnancy.
Once there was a law which stated that an abortion could
be granted in the case of rape, incest, or if the life of the
mother was endangered.
With very young girls getting pregnant, I could expand this
ruling slightly.
Having an abortion is a decision that will have a lasting
affect on definitely the mother, and also the father. They will
think back on" what if."
This is where the parents must be involved with a minor in
their charge. For abortions to-be kept from the parents is
wrong.
For a minor to have a tooth extracted, a parent must give
their OK.
How life altering is a pregnancy?
*The ranter seemed to feel that an increase in the mini-
mum wage would help feed a family not able to make ends
meet.
Recently Lyndon B. Johnson's "war on poverty" has shown
that many are taking advantage of the welfare system.
A job at Burger King is not to be your goal in life. Many know
that, and have gone on to greater heights.
*Habitat for Humanity is a fine organization. They do very
good work, and I support their efforts.
Although Americans are the most giving in the world, it is
still up to the individual, with a bit of help from others, to
make it on their own.
It is the American way, and the American dream to strive
with hard work.
I'll soon be a grandfather by my daughter, and daughter-
in-law.
It's a very exciting time. With the new technology, it is possi-
ble to track the development of the baby. It is something that
all parents should have access in knowing that there is life
forming.
South Carolina has a law that will probably be passed to
allow those thinking about an abortion to see a sonogram of
the life they are about to discard.
Being informed is a powerful tool. God bless.

Good preachers teach, they don't slam

This is a response to the rant titled "Freedom of speech, or
ignorance."
I will start out by saying that I am a Christian, and I go to a
Christian church that teaches from the Bible, which is God's
breathed word brought to us by certain few who were cho-
sen, and taught by Jesus in order that our souls would be
saved.
When God created man, he gave the ability to make deci-
sions and exercise free will. Vast majorities of people believe
that they can do whatever goes through their minds to do.
Well, surprise, God isn't of the same opinion. He gave us the
Bible, which is to be used as a guide for our daily living.
There are some churches today that preach words contrary
to what God wants us to learn.
Jesus came to this earth the same way we do, but he died a
most tragic death for our sins, in order that our souls would
have eternal life in heaven.
Jesus gave God's word to those certain few in order that
they could continue his ministry once he was no longer here.


VBIC GETIING NEW


WING


The Bible tells us about God's commands, and is very
explicit about what the end result will be if those commands
are not followed.
Yes, god gave man free will and the ability to make deci-
sions, but he does expect us to make the correct decisions.
The preachers who preach things contrary to God's will,
such as homosexuality and related lifestyles not acceptable
to God, will be judged much harsher than those who are try-
ing their best to live the way god expects.
Good preachers who study and understand God's word are
not judging or slamming others. They are just trying to make
all in attendance aware of God's expectations of us as his cre-
ations, and what he commands us to do.,
In other words, they are trying to save our souls.
As far as homosexuality is concerned, it is a sin that is con-
demned by God. Those who choose this lifestyle, or any
other type of similar lifestyles, are condemning their souls,
which will not see the kingdom of God.
So, we can safely say. that any preacher who is teaching
God's word as written in the Bible is only trying to save souls.
God help this nation if that right is taken away.
Jesus died on the cross for all mankind; God gave him the
authority to be our judge when the time comes.
One other very important fact the Bible tells us is that any
nation that forsakes God will fall. We can see today how our
society is literally falling apart.
Good decisions by many people that would benefit this
nation are no longer being made.
The person who voiced this rant is showing us another way
in which our society is disintegrating.
Matthew 7:1-14 explains exactly what we are seeing today,
not just in this country, but also around the world.
There is only one important fact. God will have the last
word.
As far as other cultures are concerned, if God, our creator
and Christ Jesus, his son and our lord and savior, are not the
center of their culture, they will fall as well.
God expects us to live for him, and if we do, the end result
will be eternal life in heaven.
Yes, there is a heaven and a hell. Ask yourself, where do you
want to be. I know where I want to be, and I can only hope
that I will someday be worthy enough to be with God and his
son.
God be with this nation, and help us to make the decisions
in our lives that will be pleasing to him.

Thank you

I would like to say something about James Tucker's col-
umn.
My name is Linda and I look forward to the column every
week.
I cannot tell you how much it has meant to me to have this
little spiritual reminder coming to me every week.
I am so grateful to Mr. Tucker, and all he has done to keep
me on the path.
When I read the column I feel so uplifted, and I remember
who I am and what life's about.
We never know how we will touch people's lives, and Mr.
Tucker has become a good friend to me!
I thank him for all he does. I'm sure he is a blessing to
many.

Let's catch up with the numbers

I wonder when the news media is going to catch up with
what is happening to our pets.
Repeatedly on television, and in newspapers there have
been reports of 16 pets dying from recalled food.
Is my dog the one dog that died, or is it that the media is
incorrectly informed?


We have been on line for several days now reading report
after report of people losing their beloved pets.
Our mixed breed was 14, but healthy, when she got sick.
We didn't run to the vet right away, but as she stopped eating
and drinking, we felt something else was going on.
Then the recall began, and the numbers on our canned
dog food matched the numbers on the recall. By the time we
got our dog to the vet, it was too late, and we lost her due to
renal failure.
The company knew that something was wrong. They con-
tinued to sell poisoned products.
Now I want to know, who do we hold responsible for this,
and when will the news begin reporting correctly what is
happening in communities all over the United States.
It is more than "15 cats and one dog". I understand that
seven "test" animals died.
What I don't understand is this: If they are waiting for "con-
firmed" reports, how did they confirm what the 16 animals
died from, since just yesterday they found what chemical
was in the food?
The 16 deaths have been in the news all week.

More on hate crimes bill

Evidently the Ranter on "Freedom of Speech Threatened,"
did not check his facts for accuracy.
The "Hate Crimes Bill" proposed by U.S. Senators Orrin
Hatch (R-Utah) and Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) has the
support of most democrats and many republicans includ-
ing, Senators Gordon Smith (R-Ore), Arlen Specter (R-Pa.),
Lincoln Chaffe (R-R.I.}, Norm Coleman (R-Minn.), Susan
Collins (R-Maine), and Sens. Smith, Specter, Ensign and
Snow
It has been carefully crafted to assure freedom of speech as
defined by Supreme Court rulings.
If a pastor in Sweden was thrown in jail for violating their
laws, that has no relevance to the laws in the United States.
This will not take away the right to "preach the Bible from
the pulpit," unless that preaching incites violence against
any one or group. None of the ministers I know would do
any such thing.
As for the Fairness Doctrine, with the concentration of
ownership of the media in fewer hands, there is a danger of
media control, by the richest people, of all information.
Attempting to control by the Federal Communications
Commission creates too many opportunities for evasion.
A better approach would be to strengthen and enforce the
anti-trust laws to prevent the concentration of power in the
hands a small group of obscenely rich plutocrats.
Consider the words of Ramsey Clark, former U.S. Attorney
General.
"We're not a democracy. It's a terrible misunderstanding,
and a slander to the idea of democracy, to call us that. In real-
ity, we're a plutocracy: a government by the wealthy..."
President Dwight Eisenhower said, "In the councils of gov-
ernment, we must guard against the acquisition of unwar-
ranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the mili-
tary-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise
of misplaced power exists and will persist."
This same warning holds true for the concentration of
wealth in the hands of a relatively small group of billionaires.

Belief or non-belief in god, does it matter?

Congressman Pete Stark (D Calif.) has publicly acknowl-
edged the lack of a god belief, and his decision is a reflection
of the courage we have consistently seen from him.
Mr.Stark, in addition to being passionate about such issues
as health care and the environment, was also one of the ear-

Story to bloom at annual Hibiscus Festival on April 13


BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
VERO BEACH When
the first Hibiscus Queen
reigned, this place was a
sleepy stop on Henry Fla-
gler's railroad and citrus
groves had yet to sprout
into subdivisions.
On April 13, a new
queen will be crowned at
the first event of this
year's Hibiscus Festival,
which runs through the
following evening.
The festival, a tradition
that defined Vero Beach
for 16 years in the middle
of the last century, was
resurrected in 2004.
'/It brings back such
g od memories of grow-
ing up in Vero Beach,"
said Betty Armistead, a
native and member of the
Indian River County His-
torical Society.
The event, with activi-
ties spreading out from
the Heritage Center, runs
from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on
April 14. Admission is
free.
During the festival, his-
torical exhibits will
encourage attendees to
take a sepia-toned look
back at the county's past.
"It's good to preserve
your history and your
roots," said Elizabeth
-' Graves-Bass, who was
o crowned the first Hibiscus
Queen in 1953. This year,
she's the chairwoman of
the Miss Hibiscus
^ Pageant.
"We're looking for excel-
. lence," she said of the
contestants. School and
community involvement
z\ will be key factors in
il selecting the winner, she
added.


Miss Hibiscus 2007 will
walk away with the crown
and a $1,000 prize.
"It's one of the corner-
stones of the festival,"
Milt Thomas said of the
pageant. Mr. Thomas is
the festival's chairman
and the president of Main
Street Vero Beach, a civic
group that promotes the
downtown district.
On April 14, the event
begins with the Third
Annual Hibiscus Festival
5K.
Runners will wind along
a course that begins at
Vero Beach Municipal Air-
port and ends downtown.
At the end of the race-
course, the short stacks
and syrup of a Lion's Club
Pancake Breakfast will be
served on the Heritage
Center lawn.
Throughout the day,
produce and baked goods
will be on sale at a
farmer's market, and
artists and artisans from
across Florida will offer
their wares at the festival
marketplace.
"It's old Vero coming
back together," said Mary
Beth Mazzarella, the 1961
Hibiscus Queen, and one
of the organizers of this
year's festival.
Inside the Vero Beach
Community Center,
attendees can have their
heirlooms evaluated at
the Hibiscus Antique
Road Show, a local riff on
the PBS series.
For $10, Ron Rennick of
Ron Rennick Auctions,
Inc., will appraise one or
two antiques.
Outside, roving musi-
cians will add a touch of
Memphis' Beale Street to
14th Avenue.


During 2006 Hibiscus Festival in downtown Vero Beach, above, children bounced between inflatable funhouses. For this
year's festival, held near the Heritage Center on April 14, children can pay $5 for all-day admission to the children's
activity area, where cookie decorating and face painting will be offered.


On a downtown stage,
the Rotary Club of Vero
Beach will present "Salute
to Youth," a daylong con-
cert made up of perform-
ances by Indian River stu-
dents.
A Saturday night luau
will also be staged in the
Heritage Center. For $50,
guests dressed in "island
sharp" attire will down


rumrunners amid tropical
flowers and tiki torches.
The festival is "an
opportunity to talk
around, soak up all the
history and be with .your
children," Mrs. Armistead
said.
The original Hibiscus
Festival, which was held
annually from 1953 to
1962 and again from 1964


to 1969, was conceived as
a way to entertain the
summer tourists, who
were vacationing here in
greater numbers.
In 1967, the City Coun-
cil proclaimed the hibis-
cus as Vero Beach's official
flower.
Then, as the county
began to grow and the
original organizers moved


on, the festival went on a
39-year hiatus.
Three years ago, the fes-
tival was revitalized to
draw attention and visi-
tors to downtown.
"It's a labor of love," Mr.
Thomas said.
The modern-day event
has drawn about 3,000-
people in recent years,,
organizers said.

RUBES

RUBIES


As~kThe
Jewefer
Hawk Levy
C'


Everyone knows that
rubies are the highest
valued precious red
gem. One reason is that
they have gone hand in
hand with love and pas-
sion for thousands of
years.
Rubies claim this popu-
larity for many reasons.
They are extremely
durable having a hard-
ness of 9 on the hard-
ness scale (diamond is
a 10). they are also
extremely rare. A superi-
or gem quality blood red
rubie often times fetch
higher prices than dia-
monds.
another interesting thing
about rubies is that they
are the same basic
material as a sapphire.
Many people are not
aware that rubies come
n all the colors of the
rainbow, in fact a sap-
phire is the same com-
position as a ruby, they
are both corundum!
Another thing nice about

Bump Holman, Bud's
son, has seen Dodgertown's
fortunes rise and decline.
The facility, once meticu-
lously maintained, looks
dated, even frayed in
places.
"It lost a lot of its personal
touch when the O'Malleys
got out," Mr. Holman said.
"With News Corp. and
McCourt, it hasn't been the
same."
The O'Malley family sold
the franchise to Rupert
Murdoch's News Corp. in
1998. Frank McCourt, a
New England real estate
developer, bought the
Dodgers six years later.
The team had been train-
ing in Vero Beach for 10
seasons when it bolted for
Los Angeles a half-century
ago.
Pulitzer Prize-winning
author and historian Doris
Kearns Goodwin was a girl
on Long Island when the
Dodgers left Brooklyn. In
her 1997 memoir, "Wait Till
Next Year," she recounted
her girlhood love for the
team feelings that
soured following Mr.
O'Malley's move west.
"When the Dodgers left
Brooklyn, I left the
Dodgers, moved to Boston
and became a Red Sox fan,"
Mrs. Goodwin said during a
March 31 lecture at the
Emerson Center.
For East Coast fans who
flocked to Vero Beach after
the team moved to L.A., the
Glendale announcement
"must feel like it's the sec-
ond betrayal," Mrs. Good-


win said in an interview.
"Whatever the benefits
are," she continued,
"they're destroying the tra-
dition and memories."
Today, Dodgertown is an
anachronism. A shallow 17
rows of seats overlook the
field. There are no dugouts,
just narrow aluminum
benches. A waist-high,
chain-link fence divides
autograph-seeking fans
from players. There was no
outfield fence until 1971,
after outfielder Dick Allen
ran into a palm tree.
"It's a one-of-a-kind, nos-
talgic kind of thing," Mr.
Gandy said of Dodgertown,
where he watched the Bal-
timore Orioles face the
Dodgers on March 22. "You
don't see that anywhere
else."
Because of its longevity
and quaint charm, Dodger-
town has been afforded a
place in baseball mytholo-
gy.
The first-ever night
spring training game was
played here in 1968, ironi-
cally, against the White Sox.
Other superlatives are
decidedly more arcane, like
the 1984 plaque for Best
Landscaping of a Facility in
Indian River County, now
bolted to the side of the
grandstand.
Dodger Dogs, $3.50, and
ice cream dished up in
miniature batting helmets,
$5, remain concession
stand staples.
Starbucks Coffee, howev-
er, was new this year.
Near the main gate and
restrooms labeled "bat-
boys" and "batgirls," Carme
DeSanto sold packs of
Fleer, Topps and Upper

the Dodgers faced the New
York Mets in this spring's
final game. Her husband,
Angelo, is part of the
groundskeeping team.
Mrs. DeSanto, a retired
interior designer who
divides the year between
Vero Beach and Erie, Pa.,
worried about what would
become of Dodgertown
after the move.
"For Holman Stadium
and Vero Beach, it's a big
loss," Mrs. DeSanto said.
"I'm hoping that another
team comes here and saves
this stadium."
Indian River County and
the City of Vero Beach,
which share custody of
Dodgertown, would work
together to find a replace-
ment tenant, said County
Administrator Joe Baird.
Six years ago, the county
and city paid the Dodgers
$10 million for the 61-acre
complex, a stopgap meas-
ure to keep the team train-
ing here. The deal was
sweetened with an addi-
tional $7 million for
upgrades and another $2
million for future mainte-
nance. Today, the county
owns a nearly 90 percent
stake in the property and
the city owns the rest.
"Even though they're
leaving, we still have an
excellent relationship with
the Dodgers," Mr. Baird
said.
Though other teams have
expressed interest in train-
ing at the facility, Mr. Baird
said negotiation is difficult
because "we do not have a
definite date when, the

T th everything one
oes on a com-
puter, sometimes
it's easy to forget about
what the mouse is doing.
With everything that
happens on a typical
computer, it's easy to get
distracted by everything
that's going around the
pointer and you end up
missing clues the mouse is
trying to give you.
A lot of people don't
realize just how precise an
instrument the mouse
really is.
The very tip of the
pointer, when pointed at
objects just so, will often
reveal clues that can be
used to help you do

change color or a picture's
title will appear if the
mouse is held over it for
long enough.
The secret is to pause
thle mouse over an object
in order to see anything.
The reason I keep
harping on that is some-
times I work with someone
who just can't resist the
urge to wiggle that mouse.
Every time something's
loading or working, he's
moving the mouse all over
the screen.
Many times we'll be
trying to work out a
procedure, but with that
mouse flying all over, we
can't get any thinking
done.
As soon as the mouse
stops and we start point-
ing at things and pausing
and start paying attention.
to our mouse, we start to
make progress.
So, what are some of the
clues to watch for when
your pointer passes over
something?
One of the things that
you'll likely see is the
pointer turn into a double-
sided arrow.
Often, you'll notice this
when the very tip of your
pointer moves over the
very edge of some objects.
This is your computer's
way of telling you that you
can stretch whatever it is
that you are currently
pointing at. All you have to


do is click and hold. Then
you should be able to
resize that object just by
dragging the mouse.
In many Microsoft
programs, such as Internet
Explorer, Outlook Express
and Word, holding your
mouse over buttons and
controls usually yields a
small pop-up window with
a short, one or two-word
description of the control.
The thing is, many times
this little pop-up doesn't
appear for a second or so.
If you're moving the
mouse, you may miss it.
In word processors, you
may notice the mouse
turns into an oversized
capital "I."
This pointer is called the
"I beam," and its shape is
specifically designed to get
right between the letters.
When your pointer turns
into an I beam, that's your
clue that the screen you're
pointing at is for typing.
Yeah, there sure is a lot
on a computer that can
serve to distract you.
One of the best ways to
stay on track is to pay
attention to what your
mouse is pointing at, take
it easy and follow your
mouse.
Many times the answers
that you are looking for are
right under your pointer.

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

the integrity and honesty to share their non-traditional

whether or not they believe in the God of Abraham, claimed

Demand property tax reform
Everyone needs to call state representatives and demand
property tax reform.
The Democrats will have you believe it's a handout to the
rich. Believe me, it hurts the many working poor, firemen,
policemen, and teachers, and upcoming future young
homeowners much more than it helps the rich.
Do the math!
Let's say you are below the poverty line of $16,000 a year
(and you) spend half of that on taxable purchases. The extra
2.5 cent increase would cost (you) an average of $17 a
month.
On the other hand if you are a family making $36,000 a
year, and somehow could find a $105,000 house, after the
$25,000 homestead exemption, you'd pay taxes on $80,000.
With a millage rate of 15, you'd pay $100 a month in prop-
erty taxes.
Who is hurt more?Who needs the money more?
In order for that family to be hurt by the 2.5 cent tax
increase, they would have to buy $4,000 a month in taxable
purchases.
The more the county values your house, the more you pay.
I say make it an even 9 cents, and figure out another way to

sion approved expensive

team there.
The Red Sox, which train
in Fort Myers, are another
rumored, hoped-for possi-
bility.
Regardless, the Dodgers
have left an indelible mark
on this city of 18,000 resi-
dents. Two miles from the
training complex, Dodger-
town Elementary wears the
team logo, and its campus
is dotted with the same
baseball-shaped lampposts
that line Holman Stadium's
berms. The city's official
Web site touts the Dodgers
connection. At Bobby's, a
beachside haunt popular
with players, a framed
photo of Tommy Lasorda
greets diners as they cross
the threshold.
"Sixty spring training sea-
sons is a long time," said
Karl Steene, the director of
marketing at Indian River
National Bank, which has a
prominent outfield bill-


board at Holman Stadium.
"Grief is just beginning here
inVero Beach."
On the last day of spring
training, March 29, the sun
bored through clouds as
thick as meringue, turning
a muggy morning into a
sticky, sun-drenched after-
noon.
Mrs. DeSanto, at the sou-
venir stand, was talking
about coming back next
year to sell grapefruit-col-
ored baseballs and clear
plastic sleeves for prized
baseball cards.
"This place is very warm;
everybody looks out for
everybody else," she said.
Out on the diamond, the
Mets buried the Dodgers,
13-2. In the stands, where
spectators were squeezed
into hard plastic seats, the
mood remained festive.
At this hallowed place,
fans will get one more year
with the Dodgers before
the team again heads west.
And Dodgertown, once
again, will fall silent.

reimburse the poor for their $20 of additional cost.
Maybe the state representatives who are against this could
walk around and hand out $20 checks to them.
Or, they could keep things the same and walk around and
collect the $100 plus per month of property taxes from the
working poor.
I may sound bitter, because I am.
In 2001,1 Ilived in an 1,800-square-foot house on an acre of
land and paid $1,800 dollars a year in taxes. I had no prob-
lems with that.
I took out a $207,000 loan, and with a lot of sweat equity
built myself a 2,800 square-foot home.
Now the county says it's worth $580,000, even though it
only cost me $207,000 to build.
I make no more than I did before, but now my taxes are
$8,700 dollars a year.
I moved a mile away from my previous house, and have the
same amount of land. The last time I checked, I use no more
services than I did before.
Both houses are in the county, and not in the city of Mel-
bourne, or my taxes would even be higher.
This was our dream home. I told my wife the other day, that
there is no way we'll be able to stay in our house, (or even in)
Florida, because we can't afford the taxes and insurance after
we retire.
In hindsight, I should have stayed in my previous house
and taken advantage of the system that rewards those who
don't move, and places the tax burden on the young and the
people new to the area.
These high taxes make us prisoners to our homes. The
longer you own your home, the more costly it will be to
move.

Urban Service bill advances


Measure would
give voters more
control
BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
A proposal that would
give Indian River County
voters control over certain
land-use decisions cleared
its first legislative commit-
tee last week.
The move to require voter
approval of changes to the
Urban Service Area bound-
ary, an effort that has ignit-
ed controversy, passed the
House Committee on
Urban and Local Affairs
without debate on March
28.
Now, the House Govern-
ment Efficiency and
Accountability Council will
consider the bill.
The legislation, spon-
sored by State Rep. Stan
Mayfield, R-Vero Beach,
would ask voters during the
next countywide general
election if they want control
over changes to the bound-
ary, which divides the coun-
ty's developed eastern por-
tion from the rural west.
On the eastern side of the
boundary, zoning rules
allow high-density develop-
ment.
If enacted, Mr. Mayfield's
bill would reassign the
power to move the bound-
ary from the County Com-
mission to county voters.
"The residents of Indian
River County deserve to
have a say in how their
neighborhoods grow, and
this bill ensures their voices
will be heard," Mr. Mayfield
said in a press release.
The lawmaker was not at
the Capitol last week to
introduce the legislation.
His legislative aide, Kevin
Sweeny, presented the pro-
posal.
C) Late last month, Mr. May-
field announced that he
was undergoing treatment
for esophageal cancer.
The other member of the
area's House delegation,
State Rep. Ralph Poppell, R-
Vero Beach, voted against
the Urban Service Area bill
during a February meeting.
In casting his "no" vote,


School


Board


selects


law firm

FOR HOMETOWN NEWS


The Indian River Coun-
ty School Board has
selected Brown, Gar-
ganese, Weiss & D'Agresta,
P.A. to serve as general
counsel to the School Dis-
trict of Indian River Coun-
ty and the School Board.
The law firm of Brown,
Garganese, Weiss & D'A-
gresta, PA. has previously
served in that capacity. .
Usher L. Brown will be
the principal attorney of
the law firm, attending
regular and special School
Board meetings. He will
be assisted by his law
partner, Suzanne D'Agres-
ta and associate, Amy
Pitsch.
Mr. Brown, who has rep-
resented school boards in
Florida since 1982, is
board-certified by the
Florida Bar in Civil Trial
Law, and recognized in
Best Lawyers in America,
in the areas of education
and municipal law.
Ms. D'Agfesta is board-
certified by the Florida Bar
in City, County and Local
Government Law, and is
the immediate past presi-
dent of the Florida School
Board Attorneys Associa-
tion.


Mr. Poppell said the meas-
ure could hem in Fellsmere,
which lies outside of the
boundary
In November, a straw poll
asking for the Legislature to
transfer control of the
boundary to voters passed
with an overwhelmingly
majority. Out of 40,432 bal-
lots cast, 71 percent
approved the measure.
There are about 81,100
registered voters in the
county.
Mr. Mayfield's bill is one
option being considered
that could limit future
growth across the county.
Since last fall, county
commissioners have
pushed for charter govern-
ment as a way to slow down
growth by giving voters
control over some land-use
and zoning decisions,
including the service
boundary
Municipal leaders, mean-
while, have explored the
possibility of an inter-local
agreement that could lock
the county and Indian
River's five municipalities
into a decades-long land-
use contract.
Fellsmere has annexed
surrounding county land in
recent years, and is consid-
ering an annexation that
would add 18,000 acres.
Critics have charged that
Fellsmere, if left unchecked,
could one day resemble
Port St. Lucie or Palm Bay,
which each have more than
100,000 residents.
County Commissioner
Peter O'Bryan, who has
sought tougher slow-
growth measures, said a few
hundred voters in Fellsmere
should not be choosing
public officials who will
make land-use decisions
that could affect the entire
county.
Fellsmere City Manager
Jason Nunemaker said his
city has no intention of

growing into a sprawling

'All of these inferences
that we're goirrg to grow like
cities to the north or south,
that's just false rhetoric," he
said.
Mr. Nunemaker added
that he was confident the
service boundary bill would
not pass.


Among the members of
Indian River Neighborhood
Association, a citizens
group that has advocated
for voter control over the
boundary, there is hope the
legislation will be enacted.
"We're cautiously opti-
mistic that it will pass," said
Honey Minuse, the group's
president.

The American dollar
closed out 2006 in a
bad spot, requiring
.$1.30 to buy one Euro and
close to $2 to purchase a
British pound sterling.
This was, and is, great
news for Europeans travel-
ing to the United States or
Canada.
But for visitors heading in
the other direction, it's
quite a different, and
expensive story.
Americans and Canadi-
ans visiting. Europe, or
some other a country that
ties its currency to the Euro,
are going to experience
even worse sticker shock
than they have over the
past couple of years.
However, by using the
right strategies and the
expertise of travel profes-
sionals to help them make
good decisions, travelers
can minimize, or avoid
altogether, the inflated
prices caused by currency
shifts.
For the most part, coun-
tries south of the border are
a safe currency bet for U.S.
and Canadian travelers.
Most Latin American
countries tie their currency
to the dollar officially, or in
practice, and some actually
use the U.S. dollar as their
own.
In this region, there has
been little to no loss of dol-
lar value and many coun-
tries in Central and South
America can offer an excel-
lent value at all budget lev-
els.
Costa Rica is a' good
example and a wonderful
destination as American
tourists are welcomed year
round.
Going to the most popu-
lar destinations in Europe
can feel like a shopping trip

seasonal outdoor concerts.
Also, if you go to such
places as Kansas City,
Austin, Texas or Cheyenne,
Wyo., you can find accom-
modations at half price or
cheaper than they are in
larger cities.
The local amenities are
truly exceptional in overall
value.
In fact, most Americans
and Canadians are actually
within a few hours drive 6f
a great destination they
have never visited.
Maybe this summer or
fall would be the perfect
time to discover the excel-
lent travel value in the U.S.
and North America.
Of course, if you ,have
been planning for a special
vacation and have a long
distance in mind, consider
the islands of the Pacific.
They may offer an excel-
lent combination of ameni-
ties and value for dollar.
Hawaii, Tahiti, Fiji, Aus-
tralia and New Zealand are
excellent vacation destina-
tions that represent good
value for the U.S. dollar.
Looking for a true adven-
ture? Consider Africa.
There are excellent values
and locations that you can
visit in Africa that are safe,
exciting and still represent
great value.
However, these long-dis-
tance vacations usually
require more than a week
to make the journey worth-
while and take in the sights
properly.
Finally, a vacation repre-
sents an investment of your
time and money.
Whenever possible con-
sider using the resources
and expertise of a travel
professional who will give
you the best travel advice
and the highest return for
your vacation travel dollar.
Until the actual trip,
happy travel dreams

tine restaurant lunches that

Traveling on escorted
tours with reputable tour
operators can help you
avoid those unpleasant
surprises, because you will
benefit from wholesale and
group rates.
For those looking for-
ward to traveling to Europe,
expand your horizons and
visit areas where demand
has not driven prices to
such lofty levels.
Eastern Europe and
Turkey are perfect choices
for European aficionados,
as those countries are still
significantly cheaper than
Western Europe.
To reap even greater dis-
counts, stay away from big
cities.
Also, prices in Portugal
and rural Spain have stayed
relatively stable, and these
destinations can represent
a savings of 30 to 40 percent
over nations to the north.
Too few travelers either
think or talk the great desti-
nations our country has to
offer.
With last-minute afford-
able airfares so prevalent,
and the great highway sys-
tem, it makes sense to be
flexible and look at what is
available right here at
home.
There are many places
worth visiting across the
U.S. and most of these des-
tinations are doing every-
thing in their power to
make your stay memo-
rable, offering everything
from new museums and
performance halls to free

Nicks South


Beach Grill offers


fine dining


BY ROBIN RINKE
Staff writer


Mitch Kloorfain/chief photographer
Sue, Roslyn and John Docktor of Fort Pierce try the fine dining at Nicks South Beach Grill in the Colonnades Plaza in Fort-
Pierce.
I AOL -. 7t-_


Mitch Kloorfain/chief photographer
Fine seafood, steak and pasta is what you can expect at Nick's South Beach Grill in Fort Pierce. The candlelit tables and
piped-in jazz music set a relaxing tone for an enjoyable evening.


FORT PIERCE Tucked
in the back of the Colon-
nades Plaza on A1A is one
of the finest seafood, steak
and pasta restaurants in
the area.
Nick's South Beach Grill
in Fort Pierce is a place for
those of us that like to eat
well and have top-notch
service to boot.
Owner Nick Angelos has
been in the area for more
than 13 years and has the
touch when it comes to
giving customers what
they want.
When my husband
Charles and I arrived, we
were greeted by the host-
ess and sat in a high back
booth adorned with lined
napkins and crystal water
goblets.
We loved the dark wood,
Casablanca wooden fans,
candlelight and piped-in
jazz music.
The ambiance and nauti-
cal d6cor was a perfect fit
for the island restaurant.
Our waiter, Myron, who
was very hospitable, was
quick to bring us a basket-
ful of warm, miniature
bread loafs to nibble on
while he suggested the
wine for the evening.
Myron also went over the
specials and was quite
knowledgeable at the
explanation of each dish
and how it was prepared.
The menu itself is diverse
and has something for
everyone.
For appetizers we decid-
ed to try the yellow fin
tuna sashimi and Cajun
shrimp.
The tuna was displayed
on an art deco platter over
.fried Chinese noodles. It
was pink, thick and tasted
like butter. It was obvious-


ly a high-grade tuna.
The fried Cajun shrimp
were large and served with
a homemade horsy, Cajun.
and tartar sauce on the
side. The dip was just right
for the lightly battered
treat.
We had to try the chef's
soup du jour, which was a
homemade chicken and
corn chowder. We had
never tasted the chowder
before and found the com-
bination extremely tasty
and hearty. The soup
needed no extra season-
ing, which to me, says a lot
about a chef.
Our main entrees were
accompanied by a Greek
salad. We were not let
down with the fresh, cold,
crispy salad loaded with
feta cheese. We thought
the homemade balsamic
dressing was light and fan-
tastic. The special dressing
is made with three differ-
ent types of vinegar: Red,
white and balsamic.
When our entrees arrived
we immediately noticed
the large portions and
beautiful presentation.
Charles ordered the filet
tip Madera, which was
tender sirloin-tips,
caramelized onion and
portabella mushrooms
smothered in Madera wine
sauce. It was superb.
Charles' plate was filled
with sauteed vegetables
and a twice-baked potato.
I ordered the grouper al
la Oscar. The fat fish filet
was fresh, flaky and
topped with lump crab-
meat and fresh asparagus.
Two sauces accompany
the dish, which were hol-
landaise citrus and rasp-
berry both homemade.
I chose mashed garlic-
red potatoes and sauteed

Delicious choices for a great
Easter dinner


Hello smart shoppers,
hope you had a
good week.
This Sunday is Easter. I
usually forego tradition
and make an American
meal.
Since Jesus was "the
sacrificial lamb," lamb is a
traditional Easter dinner.
However, all family
members do not like lamb.
Serving two different meats
solves the problem.
A friend shared her Greek
brother-in-law's recipe for
"Greek Easter lamb." It is
by far the best roast lamb
I've ever tasted.
After you've selected a
leg or half a leg of lamb, ask
the butcher to bone and tie
it, if you prefer it boneless.
Another popular choice
for Easter is Virginia ham.


When it comes to hams
the choices are confusing.
Many spend more than $4
a pound for those spiral-
sliced hams. As far as I'm
concerned, you're wasting
your money.
Many times, smoked
hams are about $1 a pound
and are much better than
those expensive hams.
If you buy a half of ham,
buy a shank half. My late
husband Bill's recipe is the
best. I have repeated it
every year just in case you
didn't save it.
Be sure to add several
colorful vegetables from
recipes I have given you in
the past.

Eastdr is a joyous celebra-
tion of Jesus Christ's
resurrection. The story of
Easter comes from the
Bible in the New Testa-
ment.
Most of us know about
the cross, but what about
the lamb, the Easter bunny
and colored eggs?
How do they fit into the
celebration and why?
Again I will turn to my
trusty encyclopedia.
The cross: The cross
represents the crucifixion
of Christ. People in many
parts of the world make
special cakes called, hot
cross buns. Each cake has a
cross of icing on its crust.
The lamb: The symbol
of the lamb comes from the
Jewish celebration of
Passover.
Jews sacrificed a lamb
during the traditional
Passover ceremony. To
Christians, Jesus was the
"sacrificial lamb," and "The
Last Supper" was the
Passover feast.
* Eggs: Eggs represent
new life that returns to
nature around Easter time
(the spring). Ancient
Egyptians and Persians
often dyed eggs in spring
colors to give as gifts.
The Persians believed the
earth hatched from a giant
egg.
* The bunny: In ancient
Egypt, the rabbit symbol-
ized birth and new life.
An old German legend
says a poor woman dyed
some eggs during a famine,
and hid them in a nest as
an Easter gift to her chil-
dren. Just as the children
discovered the nest, a big
rabbit leaped away. The
story spread that the rabbit
had brought the Easter
eggs.
And there you have it.
To my Christian readers,
"First, remember what you
are celebrating and be sure
to tell your family and
friends all about Easter."
Blessings to you all; see
you next week.

HONEY'S BAKED
VIRGINIA HAM
Serves 8-10
7-9 pound shank half
smoked
ham
3 heaping tablespoons
dark
brown sugar


r u


1 rounded teaspoon dry
mustard
Large-sized aluminum
foil
1 cup molasses,
unsulphered
Whole cloves
1 large can sliced
pineapple
Maraschino
cherries, optional
Trim fat from meat,
leaving a thin layer on top.
Using a sharp knife, score
top of meat in a criss-cross
pattern.
Mix the sugar and mus-
tard together and rub over
ham. Dot with cloves. Do
not salt since ham can be
salty.
Cut a piece of foil large
enough to encase the ham.
Place foil in roasting pan,
center ham.
Pour on the molasses and
the juice from the pineap-
ple. Bring the ends of the
foil up and encase the
ham, folding foil loosely at
top so steam can escape.
Bake in a 325-degree F.
oven for 30 minutes a
pound.
About 1/2 hour before
meat is done, open foil and
cover meat with pineapple
slices secured with tooth
picks; place a cherry in
each pineapple center;
baste and roast uncovered
until done.
Remove meat to serving
platter.
Place juices in saucepan
and de-fat by tossing in
several ice cubes. When
chilled, remove fat and
remaining cubes with a
slotted spoon. Heat and
serve as is, or thicken


slightly with a mixture of
cornstarch and water.
Raisins can be added for an
extra special touch.
Cook them in the sauce
for at least 10 minutes.
Be sure to freeze the bone
for soup.

LEG OF LAMB
Serves 8-10
This is my original.recipe
7-9 pound whole
or half leg of lamb
1 to 2 cloves garlic
Fresh or dried
rosemary
Salt and pepper
Mint sauce
(optional)
Cut garlic into thin
matchstick slivers. Cut slits
in roast and push in garlic
slivers.
Season generously with
black pepper and lightly
with salt and rosemary.
Place meat on rack in
roasting pan.
Brush lightly with mint
sauce and roast in a 325-
degree E oven for 30
minutes a pound for
medium, and 35 minutes a
pound for well done.
NOTE: Gravy is a must for
leg of lamb. Use ice cubes,
'as explained above, to de-
fat the drippings. Prepare
the gravy with a mixture of
flour and water shaken in a
jar to blend. Use Gravy
Master (sold near ketchup)
to enhance color and
powdered golden bouillon
to enhance flavor if neces-
sary.

GREEK EASTER LAMB
(NIB)
Serves 6-8
My friend, Gina Thomp-
son, is fortunate to have a
brother-in-law who is of
Greek descent and has
shared his family recipe.
1 large onion,
chopped
4 tablespoons
chopped garlic


1 large stalk of
celery, chopped
Several sprigs of
fresh oregano and
rosemary leaves,
stripped off the
stem or 1 tea-
spoons each dried
2 tablespoons
extra virgin olive
oil
Juice of 2 lemons
1/2 teaspoons
each, salt and
pepper
Leg of lamb, about
6 pounds or more,
(bone in)
Flour
Potatoes and
carrots,
Optional:
2 cups beef gravy,
homemade or .
canned
In a large skillet, place
chopped vegetables,
oregano and rosemary. Mix
together oil, lemon juice,
salt and pepper; pour over
mixture in skillet. Saut6
until mixture is golden
turning frequently.
Remove mixture from
pan and set aside.
Dredge lamb with flour
and brown in remaining oil
adding more if necessary.
Let meat cool until it can
be handled. Make deep
slits in the meat stuffing in
the reserved vegetable
mixture. Use the rest on
top and around roast in the
roasting pan. Add water to
come up to 1-inch.
Roast in a preheated 325-
degree E oven 35 to 40
minutes a pound. One
hour before being done,
add 2 cups beef gravy to
the pan. If you want the
vegetables cooked with the
roast, add them at the
same time.
Remove roast, pour
drippings into a saucepan
and de-fat by adding ice
cubes as explained in
previous lamb recipe.
To serve the Greek way,
lay meat slices over bib
lettuce.

Turtles, artists mark

moment in limelight


Fundraiser pulled
in $150K during
second year
BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
VERO BEACH A few
yards from the red carpet,
the reunion was as rau-
cous as a conga line and
brighter than the folds of a
flamenco dancer's skirt.
For a final time on March
30, the 15 sea turtle sculp-
tures of the TurtleTrax
public art project were
exhibited together before
being hauled to their per-
manent display locations.
Arranged in an arc on an
emerald lawn, the sculp-
tures and their artists
awaited their moment in
the spotlight.
The event, the TurtleTrax
Hall of Fame Ceremony,
marked the end of the
fundraiser, which raised
more than $150,000 for the
Mental Health Association
during its three-month
run.
"Nowhere is a turtle
more poetic than when it's
painted and up for sale,"
sang Sandi Lardani and
Paul Amaru, performers
with the Vero Beach The-
atre Guild's Guild on the.
Go program. Their song,
"There's No Business Like
Turtle Business," a twist on
"There's No Business Like
Show Business," thanked
the dozens of artists and
sponsors who donated
money, time and talent to
turn the two seasons of the
project into a riot of fanci-


ful designs and Crayola
hues.
At the ceremony, held on
the Heritage Center lawn,
the artists and sponsors
each received a Goldie, a
chubby, four-inch-high
sea turtle statuette nearly
identical to the six-foot-
tall public sculptures, and
done up in 'a shade of
Oscar gold.
"What a wonderful way
to end this two-year
event," said Kristine
Sarkauskus, the Mental
Health Association's presi-
dent and chief executive
officer, adding that the
amount raised by Turtle-
Trax this year could rise. To
raise money for the non-
profit organization, teams
from across Indian River
County rounded up at
least $10,000 apiece for the
turtles.
"[The turtles] cause such
a commotion," Ms.
Sarkauskus said.
During the first season of
TurtleTrax, 52 of the fiber-
glass sculptures were auc-
tioned, raising about
$550,000. The Mental
Health Association, which
provides crisis counseling
and mental health care,
launched TurtleTrax in late
2005.
At the Friday afternoon
ceremony, where a gray,
moody sky contrasted
with the vibrant sculp-
tures, attendees wandered
down a red carpet to
accept their Goldies.

strong group of relation-

FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

VERO BEACH The
Humane Society of Vero
Beach and Indian River
County is urging all pet
owners to check the pet
food they've purchased
after a slew of recent ani-
mal deaths and illnesses
prompted a national recall
of 60 million cans of dog
and cat food.
At least 10 dogs across
the United States have
died, and hundreds of
other dogs and cats have
recently shown signs of
kidney failure after con-
suming certain pet foods.
Experts are trying to pin-
point the source of the ill-
ness, which is currently
believed to only affect
canned or pouched "wet"
foods.
"Don't assume your pet's
food is safe," said Humane
Society Executive Director
Joan Carlson. "Many pet
foods have different
names, but are manufac-


tured or distributed by the
same company and your
pet may be at risk."
Approximately 36 brands
of cat food and 46 brands
of dog food are being
pulled off store shelves,
with many other brands
being voluntarily recalled.
Ms. Carlson urges vigi-
lance, and asks that pet
owners closely monitor
the health and behavior of
their pets.
She also asks the public
to follow this story since
the number of pet food
brands or varieties recalled
may expand over the next
few days.
Until the source of con-
tamination can be deter-
mined, The Humane Soci-
ety is urging pet owners to
do the following immedi-
ately:
*Contact the store
where you purchase your
pet food, or a special pet
food recall information
number, (866) 895-2708.
*Read both the brand


and the specific variety of
pet food, for example,
"Chunky Beef," "Chicken
Cuts and Gravy," etc.,
along with the UPC code
number and stock keeping
unit number.
* If your pet food is on
the list, immediately stop
feeding it to your pet.
*Pet owners whose ani-
mals are showing possible
signs of illness, and who
have fed their animals
food on the recall list
should speak with their
veterinarian immediately.
Show your veterinarian the
brand and variety of food
your pet has eaten.
* Many stores are offer-
ing refunds on the recalled
food. If you have pur-
chased food that is on the
recall list, ask the store
where you purchased your
food about its refund poli-
cy. Ask for a receipt indi-
cating the brand and vari-
ety of pet food returned in

Aries-March 21-April 19
Your heart is like a deep well
of creativity continually flow-
ing with inspirations, dreams
and new ideas. Listening to
this divine source when solu-
tions to life's challenges are
needed is your secret to suc-
cess. The possibilities are
endless. Listening to, trusting
and acting on this supreme
guidance is the fuel that
keeps the Aries fire going. It
continues to lift you to
greater heights than you have
ever dreamed possible. You
are truly blessed.

Taurus-April 20-May 20
When you let universal wis-


dom guide you, you make
wise choices. When you let
the lower will take over, you
see less of the good things
happening. The best sign of
slipping off the spiritual path
is when you begin to worry
about the earthly stuff and
lose sight of the higher good.
It's your choice on which way
to turn. Surrender to the
higher will and make an
accounting of your many
blessings. Feel like you have
plenty and much more wants
to be given to that.

your success is because of

your hard work and devotion
to duties. Whether it is with
family, friends or work, you
always sense what needs to
be done and then you do it.
You remain committed, calm
and passionate. You are high-
ly deserving of the rewards
that come your way. You
have more than earned
them. Your basic honesty and
loyalty is an inspiration to
many others even if they
don't always tell you. Keep it
up.
Cancer-June 22-July 22
Life continues to present
challenges because of your
active lifestyle. How you han-
dle them is the key to your
happiness and success. It is
usually unwise to take on
more than two or three
important projects at once.
Finish what you start before
going on to new things. Qual-
ity is more important than
quantity. Listen to your gut
instinct and it will tell you
when to act and when to
wait. The inner voice will
always tip the scales in your
favor when you are open to
and trusting it.

Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
It is important to make daily
affirmations for the good you
have been given in life. Be
thankful daily for all the love,
. peace, health, abundance
and joy you have. All this
good has been possible
because of your own hard
work and faith in the higher
powers. It's nice to know that
you are connected to this
benevolent source. Continue
to feel this in your heart and

ships with the artistic and
philanthropic communi-
ties in town," said Barbara
Hammond, the project's
chairwoman and the head
of the Mental Health Asso-
ciation Board of Directors.
To cap the event, organ-
ize s unveiled Neptune, a
16u" sculpture that will be
displayed at. the Mental
Health Association head-
quarters on 37t" Street.
The turtle, conceived as an
outsized thank-you to the
TurtleTrax artists and
sponsors, sits atop a base
enrobed in blue glass
baubles. On both sides of
the shell, Barbara Sharp
painted sea turtles,
angelfish and other
marine life.
"We ordered a couple of
extra turtles in case of any
calamities," Ms. Ham-
mond explained.
When it became appar-
ent the spares wouldn't be
needed, the association
sent one to Ms. Sharp and
asked her to craft the
finale-making turtle.
The Vero Beach artist,
who channeled Monet and
Van Gogh for some of her
other TurtleTrax sculp-
tures, inscribed sponsors'
names on sand dollars -
"to represent the dollars
they spent," she said -
and crowned Neptune
with coral and spiky shells.
The names of the artists
ring the sculpture's mid-
section.


TurtleTrax, Ms.
Sarkauskus said, will now
go on hiatus. The sea tur-
tle, however, will remain a
key part of the Mental
Health Association's mar-
keting and fundraising
efforts.
"The turtle," Ms.
Sarkauskus said, "will be
around in some shape or
form."

It is a truism that breast

stories of survivorship
longer than their own and
cringe when they hear of

We also hate to see
someone suffer again.
The reality is that in 2007
breast cancer cannot be
cured.
I remember the first time
a doctor told me that my
disease was in remission. I
was startled, because I
considered myself cured.
People always ask, "Did
they get it all?"
The answer, sadly, is that
right now, doctors and
scientists treat the cancer
as aggressively as they can,
but they cannot guarantee
that it will not recur, and

greatest desire is that every-
one around you lives an
abundant and happy life as
well. Your inner vision contin-
ues to help you in making
wise decisions. Yours is a
good life and will always be.
Why? It's all about heart.

Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
The priorities in your life
should be to first stay con-
nected to the universal
source. Next take care of,
love, honor and respect your
family. Then focus on your
work. The love you give to
family is closely related to the
conscience and making wise
choices. When you care for
others, it makes you want to
live a healthy life, free of
compulsions. The .roots of
love give a sense of whole-
ness, joy and humanity. With-
out these things, living in
your heart feels empty. No
reason to go back to the old
way of life.

Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
You are a master at facing
and handling life's chal-
lenges. Why? Because you
carry your own weight in the
world. You always have
something left to share with


others who have a need. You
know you are going in the
right direction when you feel
the warm glow that comes
back as your reward. This
gives you more motivation in
all areas of life. Make some-
one else happy and then use
the increase in your heart to
create more good. What a
fantastic formula for success.

Aquarius-Jan. 20-Feb. 18
You have many blessings on
your life. You have inner
strength, strong vision and a
good nature. When you are
happy, the glow radiates out
and warms the hearts of
those in your circle of life.
This is one of the main rea-
sons for your success. Contin-
ue to find ways to increase
the joy. Your ideas are sound.
You finish what you start.
Your future is bright. Keep on
the action path. When you
are happy with the results,
others will be even more.
Now all is well everywhere.

Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
Facing your daily challenges
and confronting them one at
a time is how to keep your
sanity and balance. When
you let things slide, ,they build


up and sometimes over-
whelm you. No reason to be
frustrated now. Maybe you
could delegate a few things
to someone around you who
thrives on details and loves to
deal with them. This buys
you space, time and allows
you to get a second wind and
continue on to victory with
the most important adven-
tures.

There is a fantastic formula for success


Living a healthy,
balanced life is one of
the greatest chal-
lenges we face.
Controlling the stress of
everyday living and
staying focused on the
most important responsi-
bilities requires a deep
understanding of life.
A healthy practice of life
is possible. Feeling burned
out and barely surviving is
not truly living. It is more
like existing. Why have we
let ourselves get in this
condition?
I believe it all goes back
to living an outer directed
life ruled by the mind and
physical world, rather than
an inner directed one
guided by the heart and
spirit.
When I meet someone


who is happy, I ask him or
her, "Why are you so
happy? What is the secret
to your success in life?" I
write down their respons-
es and keep them for later
review.
These ideas have
become the foundation
and inspiration for the
Spirit Guide columns over
the years.
So, you dear readers,
have become a great
source of wisdom for me
and others with an interest
in knowing how the
universe thinks.
That wisdom has led to
the creation of the "Fan-
tastic Formula For Suc-
cess," which has three
principles, in the following
order.

sis that will again change
your life forever.
You don't dwell on it; you
continue to live your life.
Sometimes, you even get
so busy that you forget
that you have an appoint-
ment upcoming.
However, when you
enter a cancer center and
see patients going through
what you had gone
through, you allow your-
self to acknowledge the
fear that lurks deep within.
That's when you realize
that while many things in
your life are within your
control, this is not.
You can control how you
deal with your cancer, but
not whether it will return.
Mrs. Edwards, who has
lost a son in a car accident,
said that in a strange way,
there is comfort in know-
ing that you've been
through the worst you
could go through and
survive.


Many women I've met
who have not had breast
cancer are petrified of
getting such a diagnosis.
Perhaps the advantage to
having had it once is that
you know that you have
the inner strength to carry
on and fight. You know the
drill, you know the doctors
and you know the strange
vocabulary.
Fear of the unknown can
be the greatest fear. Too
often, it keeps women
from getting mammo-
grams or from having
check-ups after their
initial bout and treatment.
I have heard recurrent
breast cancer described as
a chronic illness, such as
diabetes, that must be
managed for the rest of
your life.
Like diabetes, if left
unchecked, the conse-
quences are dire.
If you are as sad as I am
by the fact that Mrs.


Edwards must face this
illness again, do some-
thing positive.
Get that mammogram.
See your doctor.
Stop smoking.
Make a donation to one
of the organizations that is
looking for a cure or that
helps patients without
insurance pay for treat-
ment.
Volunteer to drive cancer
patients to appointments.
Every time attention is
focused on breast cancer,
there is an opportunity to
advance the battle.
I challenge you to join
the fight.

At puberty, hormones
take over and the desire to

Later, we try to find our

Most of us are so caught'

of survival that we forget
about feeding our soul and
put this need last.
R However, the hungers we

Poisonous plant flourish in Florida


Iam getting a lot of e-
mail requests to write
about some of the most
common poisonous plants
in Florida.
I have compiled a list of
some of the most common
plants that we all have in
our yards and gardens.
Some of these will shock
you.
What you don't know
about some of these.
common plants can be
deadly. Some parts of the
ornamental plants or
flowers in your yard may
contain a deadly poison.
The most susceptible to
being harmed are children
and pets.
* Oleander: One of the
most toxic and common
poisonous plants is the
oleander. This plant


contains a deadly heart
stimulant that resembles
the prescription drug
digitalis.
If a child eats a single leaf
or two from this plant it
could be deadly. There
have been several
instances of people dying
after eating meats that
were roasted on a wood
fire that contained olean-
der twigs or branches.
* Diffenbachia: Dieffen-
bachia, which is a com-
mon tropical plant that
many of us have in our
homes, is also highly toxic.
All parts of this plant are
poisonous.
If eaten, the plant can
cause intense burning and
irritation of your mouth.
The plant can be deadly if
enough swelling occurs to

block your airway.
You should always wash
your hands after handling
this or any of the listed
poisonous plants.
* Azalea: All parts of the
Azalea plant can be toxic if
ingested. The symptoms
include nausea and
vomiting along with
difficulty in breathing and
possibly coma. The end
result can be fatal.
+ Jasmine berries: These
berries can cause digestive
problems along with
nervous system disorders.
* Oak leaves: The foliage
from oak trees can be
toxic, but the effects are
gradual. If foliage is
ingested, it can slowly
affect your kidneys.
However, you need to
ingest a substantial
amount for severe poison-
ing to occur.
+ Lantana: This plant,
which is commonly used
by many as a colorful
ground cover, is another
specimen that is toxic if
ingested.
Acute poisoning can
cause hemorrhagic
diarrhea and rapid heart
rate.
* Other varieties:
Although this list includes


some of the most common
plant varieties, there are
many more: milkweed,
narcissus, daffodil, poison
oak, puslane and snow on
the mountain.
Bear in mind that just
because some of your
favorite plants can be toxic
if ingested, common sense
and keeping these plants
out of the reach of small
children and pets can
avoid tragedy.

The plant I am referring

varieties are not poison-
ous.
There are some people,
however, that may get a
mild allergic reaction to
the milky sap if it comes in
contact with their skin.
The affected areas can be
washed with soap and
water to remove the sap if
irritation develops.
Poinsettia plants are not
a serious risk for animals,
although it is always best
to keep any plant out of
the reach of pets if they
like to chew plants.
* Philodendrons, et al:
Finally, there are several
common houseplants that
can be toxic to animals
and children.
Probably the most
common is the philoden-
dron. The toxic part is the
leaves. If ingested, it can
cause burning of the lips
and mouth and also cause
contact dermatitis if the
plant juice contacts the
skin.
Similar symptoms can
occur with pothos, golden
pothos and devil's ivy.

Exotic plants in the landscape


Florida is under attack!
Exotic plants are
invading our natural
areas, bodies of water, and
parks. According to the
Florida Exotic Pest Plant
Council, "an exotic plant is
a plant that has been
introduced to an area from
outside its native range,
either purposefully or
accidentally."
You may not realize it,
but exotics may be in your
landscape! What is so bad
about that?
When these exotic plants
become established, they
may take over and crowd
out native plants because
the natural predators that
keep the exotic plants in
check are not present.
An example is the
Australian pine. This fast
growing exotic is extreme-
ly aggressive by sterilizing
the soil, which makes it
unsuitable for growth of
other plants. .
Since.it is tall, it shades
out native plants that
require adequate amounts
of sunlight, and native


wildlife suffers because
the pines do not produce a
food source for them.
Finally, Australian pines
alter the environment by
using more water than
native plants, which may
delete water resources.
Although an exotic plant
may be appealing, it may
be harmful.
Exotic species negatively
impact our economy, as
well. The State of Florida
spends millions of dollars
each year to control these
plants. Waterways can
become clogged with
exotic aquatic plants,
which make them impass-
able. This impacts recre-
ational boating, com-
merce, and commercial
fishing. Funds are spent to
control exotic species in
natural areas to preserve
their functions and value.
You can help stop this
phenomenon by planting
native species in your
landscape. Native plants
are more energy efficient
because they require less
irrigation and fertilization

since they are adapted to
the soils, temperature, and
rainfall patterns of the
area.
In addition, maintenance
is low because native
plants are resistant to pests
and diseases that evolved
along with them.
To gain these benefits, it
is necessary to do some
research because the right
plant needs to be in the
right place.
For example, a sweetbay
tree that likes a lot of light
should not be planted in a


shady area of the lawn. The
Indian River County
Extension Service is a good
place to start researching
the best native plants for
your situation.
In order to be successful
in establishing native
plants, there are several
things that should be
done:
+Remove any exotic
plants from your lawn or at
least the fruits.
*Determine the soil
type.
By establishing native
plants in your landscape,
you are helping slow down
the invasion of exotic
plants.
But you don't have to do it
alone; the Indian River
County Extension Service
can assist you throughout
this process by calling (772)
770-5030 or by visiting our
office at 1028 20th Place.

Easter

When you have only
two pennies left in the world,

-Chinese Proverb

Easter has its share of traditions:
egg decorations and hunts,
gift baskets & chocolate bunnies,
sunrise church services,
parades and of course,
the Easter Lily. For many, the
beautiful trumpet-shaped white
flowers symbolize purity,
virtue, innocence, hope and life -
the spiritual essence of Easter.

Because it is something

When we take action on

Indians pitcher claws


her way to the top


BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
VERO BEACH After
graduation, Brooke
Shippee plans to go to the
Auburn University.
That's fitting, since the
pitcher for Vero Beach has
been a tiger on the mound
of late.
Shippee hurled a com-
plete-game shutout of
Melbourne to lead the
Indians to a 2-0 win. She
had 11 strikeouts arid also
contributed at the plate
with a run-scoring double.
"That was one of my best
games," Shippee said. "It
was really exciting.
"I just felt really good
about it; seeing all your
hard work coming togeth-
er."
The win put Vero Beach
at 6-9 on the season, with
Shippee accounting for
four of the victories. The
Indians' record might not
sound like much of an
accomplishment until one
considers last season.
The 2006 campaign
started promising enough,
as the Indians jumped out
to a 2-0 record on the
strength of two impressive
defeats of Fort Pierce Cen-
tral and Westwood.
After that it was all
downhill, as the team
struggled to a 1-16 record
the rest of the way. One
major reason for the slide
was Shippee being side-

lined with an injury.
"I pulled a ligament in
my arm," Shippee said. "I
was out almost half the
season."
Even harder for the Vero
Beach resident was watch-
ing her team lose and not
being able to contribute.
"That was the worst,"
Shippee said. "It was kind
of frustrating losing every
game.
"But we learned from it.
It helped us come together
as a team for this year."
Another key to the Indi-
ans' turnaround this sea-
son was coach Carrie Nino
persuading her team to
play together in tourna-
ments this past fall.
"Playing together in the
fall helped them to over-
come last season's defeats
and prove to themselves
and each other that they
can accomplish wins as a
team," Nino said.
Shippee couldn't agree
more.
"It was great," Shippee
said. "We got to practice
and get back in the swing
of playing.
"We learned about each
other and our weaknesses.
We had the best time doing
it."
While Shippee is happy
with the team's as well as
her individual success,
none of it could have been
accomplished without first
achieving her main goal-
stay healthy.


"All I wanted this year
was to make it through the
year without injuries,"
Shippee said.
To that end, Shippee's
dedication to her sport has
never been stronger. She
has taken pitching lessons
for the past five years, but
added a second coach in
2006.
"Pitching lessons help
me focus on the ending of
the pitch," Shippee said. "I
always have a tendency to
breeze through it and not
be strong.
"I'm very happy with my
pitching. I feel a lot more
accurate and stronger.
"My focus has gotten a
lot better."
Born in Fort Lauderdale,
Shippee moved to Vero
Beach when she was 3
years old. She first picked
up softball when she was 8.
"My mom used to play,"
Shippee said. "She wanted
me to try it.."
The sophomore started
her career at third base, the
position her mother used
to play. She moved behind
the plate before realizing
the real action was in the
opposite direction.
"At 10 years old I wanted
to try pitching," Shippee
said. "I like everything
about it. It's something I
get a thrill from doing.
"The feeling you get
when you strike someone

Los Angeles Dodger legend Charlie Hough, center, spends some time with some minor
during spring training.

BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
JUPITER A few days
after being named as the
No. 5 starter in the
Dodgers' rotation, Brett
Tomko promptly went
out and had arguably his
best outing of the spring.
The right-hander scat-
tered three hits over five
solid innings, giving up
just two runs. Tomko
struck out three and
walked only one.
"He was good,"
Dodgers' skipper Grady
Little said. "He mixed his
pitches well."
Unfortunately, Chris
Carpenter was a little bit
better. The Cardinals' ace
threw seven shutout
innings while allowing
just four hits. He struck


out five while walking
two in his final outing of
the spring, helping the
Cardinals to a 3-0 win at
Roger Dean Stadium.
It took just three batters
in the home half of the
first inning to give St.
Louis the lead and essen-
tially the game. After
Tomko got David Eck-
stein to ground to short
and Chris Duncan to fly
out harmlessly to left, up
came Albert Pujols.
Two pitches later, the
St. Louis superstar had
his first home run of the
season, blasting a mon-
strous shot over the left
field fence to put the Car-
dinals on the board.
Tomko settled down to
get Scott Rolen swinging,

out is great. It's probably
what I love the most."
Shippee has been satis-'
fying that desire a lot this
season at the expense of
the opposition. Besides
her performance against
Melbourne, Shippee has
been ringing them up and
setting them down
throughout the season.
In Vero's 6-4 win over
Eau Gallie in February,
Shippee struck out seven
to secure her first win of
the season. Against St.
Lucie West Centennial a
week later, the sophomore
struck out six in the nip-
and-tuck affair.
After giving up three
runs in the bottom of the
first inning, Shippee set-


tled down and Vero
chipped away to tie the
game in the top of the sixth
inning.
' The Indians would
eventually lose the heart-
breaker in the bottom of
the seventh inning, but
.their performance
against a tough Eagles'
squad showed that
Shippee and the Indians
are galaxies beyond last
season.
"This year, it's a lot bet-
ter," Shippee said. "We all
get along a lot better.
"Coach Nino has
helped me become a bet-
ter player. She's always
there teaching me
mechanics.

From page D2
but the damage was
done.
The Dodgers tried to
answer in the next inning.
After Olmedo Saenz was
caught looking and Andy
LaRoche flied to shallow
left, James Loney had an
infield single for the
Dodgers' first hit.
Carpenter's 1-2 offering
hit Kelly Stinnett, giving
the Dodgers a man in
scoring position. Unfor-
tunately, Tomko killed the
rally by hitting a weak
grounder back to the box
to end the inning.
The Cardinals would
add to their lead in the
fifth. Yadier Molina bat-
tled Tomko, working his
way on with an eight-
pitch walk.
After Adam Kennedy
struck out swinging, Car-
penter helped his own
cause by singling to right
field, putting runners on
the corners. Eckstein
grounded to third, but
the Dodgers couldn't con-
vert the double play as
Molina came home with
the Cardinals' second,
run.
The Dodgers' biggest
scoring threat came in
the sixth inning. Tony
Abreu opened the frame
by ripping a single to cen-
ter. Matt Kemp smoked a
ball that seemed destined
for left field, but Eckstein
ranged to his right and
came up with the ball.
The shortstop got the
force at second, but
Kemp was safe at first.
Jeff Kent then doubled
down the left-field line,
putting runners at second
and third. Saenz walked
on four pitches to load
the bases with only one
away.
With LaRoche needing
just a fly ball to put the
Dodgers on the board,
Carpenter induced the
third baseman to ground
to third. Rolen stepped
on the bag and fired to
first to complete the dou-
ble play and end the rally.
The Cardinals added an
insurance run in the
eighth inning. Pinch hit-
ter John Rodriguez led
with a walk off Jonathan
Broxton. With So Taguchi
up, Rodriguez took off for
second, staying out of the
double play as Taguchi
grounded to third.
After Duncan struck
out, Pujols walked, put-
ting runners on first and
second. Aaron Miles sin-
gled on the first pitch,
giving the Cardinals the


final run of the game.
Despite the loss, Little
was happy with his team's
performance especial-
ly that of his starter.

Nothing like good dinner, round of golf


One great thing about
the annual PGA
Merchandise Show
is spending time with fellow
golf media and friends.
We usually end our long,
tiring week with a great
dinner on the last night and
a round of golf the next
morning before heading,
home.
Having dinner together
gives us one last chance to
relax and share our stories
from the week.
The golf allows us to test
out a few of the new
products before returning
home.
For some of us, it may be
the last round of golf until
the snow thaws in the
spring.
Fortunately, I do not fall
into that category.
This year's dinner was at
the Capital Grille (www.the-
capitalgrille.com or (407)
370-4392) at the new and
improved Pointe Orlando,
across from the convention
center on International
Drive.
Dining there is quite an
experience for all of the
senses. There is lots of
mahogany, plush leather,
dark colors and distinctive
artwork to sooth your
mood and relax you for a
couple hours of dining and
conversation.
We started off with the
restaurant's signature'drink,
a pineapple martini. My
martini was shaken, not
stirred. We toasted the week
that had been and wel-
comed the first moment in
nearly a week to get off our
feet and forget about work.
From there our host
brought us a variety of
appetizers, which included
crab cakes, shrimp, oysters
and cheeses. The lobster
bisque soup is the best to
have ever passed my lips.
The main course consist-
ed of perfectly grilled, dry-
aged steaks and succulent
seafood. I had a savory 24-
ounce porterhouse steak
that was beyond delicious.
This cut was so tender and
tasty. I believe that I would
have had to hurt anyone
who got near it with
anything other than a
sprinkle of salt and pepper.
Choosing the perfect
wine from a list of more
than 400 is not an easy task.
Fortunately, our host knew
exactly what was required
to bring out the flavor and
add to the enjoyment of the
food we had chosen.
Every course was perfect-
ly timed to arrive at the
right moment. We had just
enough time between
courses to discuss our day
and compare the delicacies
that were delighting our
taste buds.
The dessert menu is a
book in itself. Our server
brought us nearly every-
thing. The flourless choco-
late espresso cake was well
liked, as was my favorite,


JAMES STAMMER
Golf columnist

the coconut cream pie.
Our dining experience
was the perfect end to a
tough week of work. We
vowed to make dinner at
the Capital Grille a new
tradition.
The following morning it
was time to pack up, check
out and enjoy one final
round of golf.
Harmony Golf Preserve
(www. harmonygolfpre-
serve.com or (407) 891-
8525) just outside St. Cloud
on U.S. Highway 192 rolled
out the welcome mat and
provided us with a perfect
venue to test our new
products and get in a few
more swings.
Designed by Johnny
Miller, the course is the
centerpiece of the town of
Harmony and is managed
byTroon Golf.
Miller's design wraps the
course around existing
wetlands and oak ham-
mocks, creating a stunning
combination of nature and
art.
There are no homes built
on any of the 280 acres
used by the course.
The development uses
other portions of the
11,000 acres of broad
meadows, strands of
southern pines and pair of
shimmering 500-acre
natural lakes for homes,
recreation and preserve
areas.
The course features a
beautiful new18,000-
square-foot clubhouse,
complete with men's and
ladies' locker rooms, and a
complete practice facility.
With five sets of tees,
measuring from 5,410
yards to as much as 7,428
yards, everyone can find a
set that allows them to


both challenge and enjoy
their game.
I last played the course
when it had its grand
opening about five years
ago.
I had the pleasure of
playing a couple of holes
with Mr. Miller, including
my favorite, the par-5 16th,
I had hit a good drive and
was planning on laying up
to avoid the water when
Mr. Miller arrived.
As I tried to sneak my 7-
iron back into my bag and
retrieve my 3-wood, he
asked who had hit such a
good drive. He then asked
me, "You didn't drive the
ball all the way down here
just to lay up did you?"
He had caught me.
I decided against it and


hit the best 3-wood of my
life, landing the ball some
235 yards away just onto
the right side of the green.
The high-five Johnny
gave me will always be one
of the highlights of my golf
career.
In the five years since
opening, Harmony has
grown in quite nicely. The
tress have sprouted up and
filled out, the grasses have
become more lush and the
greens, even better.
Golf at Harmony is as I
like it best. There are a
variety of holes, no homes
on the course and plenty of
nature to make you forget
about anything other than
your golf and the friends
that are with you.

Pirates

find

treasure

in Wilkey


BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
VERO BEACH Sally
Wilkey has sailed past the
competition this season.
She has quietly led the
Pirates' girls' tennis team
to an impressive 6-2 record
already an improve-
ment over last years' 4-4
mark.
After graduating in 2008,
Wilkey hopes to ride that
wave of success into a spot
with the crew of the highly
ranked Vanderbilt Com-
modores tennis squad.
But for now, the junior is
focused on the final two
matches of the season and
the district tournament,
which begins April 16 in
Melbourne.
"I think we'll do fine,"
Wilkey said. "I'm pretty
confident.
"Coach Buck is really
excited."
Having a player of
Wilkey's caliber would
cause any coach to sali-
vate. Wilkey has dominat-
ed the competition, leav-
ing little doubt she is one
of the area's best.
"She comes from a great
tennis family," Jim Buck
said. "She's the leader of
the team.
"She has a hard serve
and an all-court game.
"She's really focused."
Wilkey started the sea-
son with a straight sets win
over Nicole Hamilton in
Saint Edward's 7-0 shutout
of John Carroll. She also

nis Club.


teamed up with Lily Moore
to win their doubles'
match 8-2 over Hamilton
and Michaela Montpetite.
In her next match,
Wilkey squared off against
state semifinalist Natalie
Collins ofVero Beach.
Wilkey gave her area
rival a run for her money,
winning five games, but
Collins prevailed in
straight sets.
St. Edward's also lost the
overall match, 6-1, but
rebounded to win their
next three.
After dismantling the
Pine School 7-0, the Pirates
matched up with Holy
Trinity Episcopal.
Holy Trinity's Cristy
Befanis proved to be no


match for Wilkey, as the
junior came out on top, 6-
0,6-2. In No. 1 doubles' the
Vero Beach resident com-
bined forces with Iris
Moore to blank Befanis
and Alice Rhee 8-0.
The team's 7-0 win over
last season's district
champs gave Saint
Edward's three shutout
victories on the young sea-
son.
After the" match, Wilkey
gave her impressions on
the young season.
"We've done really well,"
Wilkey said. "We lost to
Vero Beach. They're tough
to beat."
"If we win districts, that
would be really good."
After shutting down


Merritt Island Christian 6-
1, Saint Edward's next
match was against a solid
Trinity Prep squad. Trinity
entered the contest with
am equally impressive 5-1
record.
Wilkey lost the first set of
the match, but recovered
to win 3-6, 6-4, 10-5.
Unfortunately, she was the
only Pirate to emerge vic-
torious as the team
dropped a 6-1 affair.
However, like they have
done all season, the Pirates
showed tremendous
resiliency, winning their
next two matches in rela-
tively easy fashion.

the driver's seat at 6-2 as
the season nears the home
stretch.
"This season went by
really fast," Wilkey said.
"We only lost two matches.
We don't sweat it."
For the most part, Wilkey
conveys 'a carefree and
confident demeanor while
talking about the sport she
loves. However, the pres-
sure of competing at No. 1
is not lost on the 17 -year-
old.
"If I lose, I feel really
guilty," Wilkey said. "I feel I
let the team down.
- "The team expects me to
win. Usually, I get really
nervous.


When she does, her
teammates provide a
source of strength.
"They are really encour-

say, 'You'll do fine. You're
awesome.'"

include lethargy, vomiting,
loss of appetite, increased
thirst and urination. Pet
owners whose animals are
showing possible signs of
illness should speak with
their veterinarian immedi-
ately.
Pet owners should also
show their veterinarian the
brand and variety of food
their pet has eaten, and
call the Food and Drug
Administration Hotline at
(888) 463-6332.
While the Humane Soci-
ety of Vero Beach's list is a
good place to start in the
search for safe pet foods,
the organization urges pet
owners to scrutinize what's
in all of the pet food prod-
ucts they purchase.
"This is the third major
pet food recall in the last
eight years. Pet owners
need to take charge of
what they feed their pets
by carefully reading pet
food labels and under-
standing the ingredients,"
Ms. Winikoff said.
She urges pet owners to
find foods with wholesome
ingredients, rather than
by-products, chemical
preservatives, and grain
fillers.
Pet owners should also
review the track record of
each pet food company.
"It's important to know
that these companies take
your pet's health and well-
being seriously," Ms.
Winikoff said.
The Humane Society's

larly and can be obtained
