Teachers, congressman discuss standardized testing


BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
U.S. Rep. Dave Weldon
asked for a show of hands
from the 25 or so teachers
who had gathered to ask
him questions about edu-
cation policy: "How many
of you would recommend
that I vote for No Child
Left Behind?"
No hands went up.
When the Melbourne


Republican asked if any-
one was unsure about
reauthorization, one
teacher raised her hand.
Mr. Weldon met with
School Board members,
administrators and teach-
ers for an hour. last week
to gauge opinion on the
federal No Child Left
Behind Act.
The. legislation, which
requires schools that
receive federal dollars to


show annual improve-
ment for each student, is
up for reauthorization
this year.
Mr. Weldon voted
against the act when it
cleared Congress in 2001.
He told his audience on
April 4 that he opposes
federal involvement in
education.
"It's likely to be reau-
thorized," Mr. Weldon
said of the bill. "I want to

Dog lovers hope

to fetch funds for

off-leash park


BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
VERO BEACH It was
Valentine's Day, and Shelly
Ferger was heartbroken.
The dog park she had
helped open a decade ago
was being forced to close,
its members no longer able
to afford the 2.5-acre
stretch of grass.
Ms. Ferger, the executive
director of Dogs for Life,
was about to receive a
sweet surprise: A $275,000
donation from an anony-
mous donor that would
allow Ms. Ferger and park
members to keep the facil-
ity open.
"I felt like it was some-
thing that was meant to
be," Ms. Ferger said.
The donor, who wants to
be identified only as the


owner of dogs named Puc-
cini and Ty, was inspired by
the members' efforts to
keep the park running.
Now, Dogs for Life has
launched a fundraising
push to improve the park
and increase its member-
ship.
The park has between
150 and 180 members, Ms.
Ferger said.
The first fundraising
event, held on April 5, drew
about 30 people to Laura
and David Driver's Vero
Beach home.
The Drivers' 3-year-old
black Lab, Brent, greeted
guests. As a pianist played,
humans and canines min-
gled in the living room and
on the patio, checking out
items for sale in the

try and make sure it's
reauthorized with
changes for the better."
President Bush, who
made the legislation a
centerpiece of his first
term, wants to reautho-
rize it. So do the Democ-
rats who lead both cham-
bers of Congress.
At the Wednesday after-
noon meeting, teachers
criticized the way the act
is implemented, and the


standard-
ized testing
that is used
to measure
an nual 1
yearIly
progress.

IRMC patients

test-drive new

treatments for

clinical trials


BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
VERO BEACH -To com-
bat memory loss, diabetes
and other afflictions,
researchers need subjects
like 68-year-old Jacquie
Smith.
The Vero Beach woman
heard a radio spot for the
new Clinical Research
Center at Indian River
Medical Center, a call for
patients who were experi-
encing mild memory loss.
The ad asked for patients
who wanted to take part in
a trial for a new drug.
"You can't have progress
in medicine unless you
have people to take part in
studies," Ms. Smith said
April 5, the day of her first
appointment at the
research center.
The center, which
opened in January, works
alongside pharmaceutical
companies to test treat-
ments for more than a
dozen medical conditions,
including diabetes and
irritable bowel syndrome.
"The reception so far has
been great," said Dr. Rae
DelVecchio, the center's
director. "People call in,
and even if they can't be on
a particular study for what-


ever reason, they all have
said, yes, it's OK to keep my
name for future calls."
Before new drugs reach
the market, manufacturers
spend years and hundreds
of millions of dollars to
perfect potential treat-
ments.
Dr. DelVecchio, who was
hired last year, spent the
first months in her post
contacting drug makers.
"In the beginning, I had
to. let them know I was
here," she said.
Since the center opened,
that balance has tipped.
For more than half of the,
trials underway, the drug
maker approached the
center.
"The program is doing
really well," Dr. DelVecchio
said. "We have a lot more
studies now."
Pharmaceutical compa-
nies pay the center to test
new drugs. When the cen-
ter opened, Dr. DelVecchio
predicted $1 million in rev-
enues and a 25 percent
profit margin. Though
delays have forced her to
re-evaluate those figures,
she remains optimistic.
"We've done well so far,
but we're not yet fully

The park, located at 12th
Street and 16th Avenue,
near Vero Beach High
School, is a grassy expanse
dotted with trees.
In addition to the
fundraising effort, Dogs for
Life is trying to lure new
members with a new mem-
bership option: $25 to reg-
ister and $10 per visit.
An annual membership
to the park costs $300. Six-
month memberships are
$200.
Ms. Ferger and other
members hope to con-
struct a building on the
grounds where they can
hold obedience classes and
train the service and assis-
tance dogs that are key to
their mission,
Two assistance dogs
attended the Thursday
night event at the Driver
home, wearing green vests
that cautioned, "Please
Don't Pet Me, I'm Working."
Assistance dogs are
trained to help their own-
ers with everyday tasks that
have become difficult due
to age or illness. They can,
for instance, pick up
dropped keys or dial 911 on
a modified phone.
Service dogs aid people
with disabilities, acting as
guide dogs for the blind or
signal dogs for the deaf.


Under the 1990 Ameri-
cans with Disabilities Act,
anyone is allowed to train a
dog to help someone with
a disability, Ms. Ferger.
Demand for these spe-
cialized pooches is high.
"We have taken dogs off
the street and trained them
as assistance dogs," Ms.
Ferger said.
At the fundraiser, Anne
Whitney, who teaches art
at Saint Edward's School,
exhibited renderings of
dogs that her students had
created.
"They had a blast with
it," she said.
For a $10 donation,
guests could leave with a
thoughtful charcoal Chi-
huahua or a pen-and-ink
terrier.
Ms. Whitney takes
Beemer, her spitz-spaniel
mix, to the off-leash park.
While Beemer romps with
his fellow dogs, his owner
gets to unwind with
friends.
"It's just as much fun for
us to socialize as it is for the
dogs to socialize," Ms.
Whitney said.

Alveda King, the niece of the late Martin Luther King Jr., spoke at the Gifford Youth Activities Center Saturday during a
Republicans For Life luncheon and rally.


Prominent figure influences Gifford youth


BY NATASHA CARTER
Staff writer


GIFFORD A message
from an abstinence, and
pro-life promoter was
shared with youth and
adults last week at the Gif-
ford Youth Activity.
Dr. Alveda King shared
her story and inspired
many about pro-life
issues at a breakfast at the
Gifford Youth Activity
Center.
"Her story is one of
courage and devotion,"
said Mary Grace Mar-
tinell, a member of
Republicans for Life.
Ms. King is the niece of
leader of the civil rights
movement Dr. Martin


Luther King Jr. and the
daughter of Rev. Alfred
David King civil rights
activist. Both men were
murdered during the civil
rights movement.
"I wanted to hear ques-
tions and concerns form
community leaders," she
said.
Later that day, she spoke
on abstinence and purity
at a youth rally at the
youth center.
The Gifford Youth drum
line played, and was fol-
lowed by the praise
dancers, Ms. King said
their performances
immediately modified her
speech.
After explaining how
she received their actions


in biblical terms she said,
"I have to tell these people
the truth."
"I protest the war on the
womb," she said.
Now she still fights for
the civil rights movement
as well as the pro-life
movement.
Dr. King is the mother of
nine children. She had
one miscarriage and two
abortions.
"My first abortion was
done without me know-
ing," Ms. King said.
Her child was aborted in
a routine doctor's check
up visit.
The next one was with
her knowledge, she said.
With the knowledge she
now has, she continues to


pags the message of absti-
nence, celibacy and the
side effects of abortion.
"It's because of the
preacher and teacher in
me," she said referring to
her drive to deliver the
message.
In addition to her pro-
life involvement in organ-
izations such as Priest for
Life and the African Amer-
ican Outreach, she partic-
ipates in the Silent No
More Campaign and she is
the founder of a faith-
based civil rights organi-
zation named King for
America, it assists people
in enriching their lives

REVIEW
Motorcyclist dies after collision with van
VERO BEACH A Vero Beach woman died March 30
after her motorcycle struck a van.
Kimberly Silver, 20, was fatally injured in the crash.
Ms. Silver collided with a van that had pulled out in front
of her motorcycle at the intersection of U.S. 1 and
Fourth Street at about 4:40 p.m. on March 31.
Ms. Silver was pronounced dead at 7 p.m. that night.
The State Attorney's Office will determine if any
charges will be filed against the driver of the van, Jane
Belli, 83, of Hatboro, Pa.

Commission turns down kennel plans
VERO BEACH County commissioners denied a
project that would have allowed a 13,900-square-foot
dog-boarding kennel on 66th Avenue north of 77th
Street.
Commissioners rejected the proposal from Mercer-
Beck Enterprises, in a 3-2 vote. Mercer-Beck Enterprises,
the owner of Top Hat N Tails Mobile Dog Grooming,
wanted to open Top Hat N Tails Pet Ranch at the site.
Commissioners said neighbors of the proposed ken-
nel might have to put up with barking and that proposed
noise-dampening measures, such as hedgerows, would
not be enough.

Wheeler gets OK to negotiate on annexation
County Commission Chairman Gary Wheeler will be
allowed to negotiate with Fellsmere leaders on the city's
proposed annexation, his colleagues decided last week in
a 3-2 vote.
Mr. Wheeler is opposed to Fellsmere's proposed
18,000-acre annexation.
After Mr. Wheeler requested the authority to meet with
Fellsmere officials, he had to second Commissioner Peter
O'Bryan's motion to give him the power.
Commissioner Joe Flescher joined Mr. Wheeler and
Mr. O'Bryan to OK the measure. Commissioners Wesley
Davis and Sandra Bowden opposed it.
Fellsmere Joint Venture, a citrus company, and Richard
and Robert Ansin of Miami own the 18,000 acres that
Fellsmere wants to annex.

Board weighs options for summer school
Indian River County Schools should offer more sum-
mer programs, School Board members said last week.
The summer programs could include educational
camps or programs devoted to specific subject areas,
such as art or science.
During the summer, Title I schools, such asVero Beach
and Dodgertown elementary schools, offer programs.
Board members and Superintendent Duncan N.P.
"Pat" Pritchett discussed creating similar programs at
other schools.

ed to new school.
n for "It is not a failing
school," Mrs. MacKay
ebbie said. "Our teachers are
that, working hard and are
g an doing a great job, but this
dents unrealistic expectation
quate has labeled them that they
given have not met adequate
r to a yearly progress."
Mr. Weldon met with
-- teachers in.Brevard Coun-
ty the day before his Vero
Beach stop.
Brevard teachers, he
said, were in favor of reau-
thorizing No Child Left
Behind.
Carli Van Zandt, a spe-
cial education teacher at
Vero Beach Elementary
School, said teachers were
devoting too much time to
FCAT preparation.
"We're over-assessing
and we're teaching to
these benchmarks, and
especially when you're
talking about students
who are challenged in
learning, it takes them
longer to learn," she said.
"Some of them may never
achieve all of these bench-
marks."
When teachers in the
audience asked Mr. Wel-
don if he could tweak the
FCAT, the congressman
reminded them that he
worked in Washington,
but said he could lobby
state lawmakers to change
the standardized test.
"Even though the con-
gressman can't do any-
thing about our FCAT test-
ing, FCAT is a result of the
NCLB and I feel that it's
wonderful that he's taking
the time and the effort" to
speak to teachers, board
Chairwoman Carol John-
son said after the meeting.
Board member Lenora
Quimby supports the No
Child Left Behind legisla-
tion. Nonetheless, she
said the FCAT has taken
on a much larger role than
when it was first adminis-,
tered in 1998.
"The FCAT was sup-
* posed to be an assess-
ment, a diagnostic assess-
ment to try to see what a
child had learned," she
- said. "It seems like it has
become a very divisive
S punishment."

Sun-Up plans workshops for parents of special-needs children


BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter


VERO BEACH Sun-Up
of Indian River, the non-
profit organization that
works to create opportuni-
ties for developmentally
disabled adults, will
launch a series of work-
shops later this month for
the parents of special
needs children.
Dennis Bartholomew,
the organization's director
of development, hatched
the idea over breakfast.
At a Chamber of Com-
merce breakfast, Mr.
Bartholomew .introduced
himself to his tablemates


and talked about Sun-Up
and its mission.
Across the table from
Mr. Bartholomew was a
man whose 6-year-old
daughter was born with
Down syndrome.
The man asked Mr.
Bartholomew what he
could do for his daughter.
Mr. Bartholomew asked if
he had a trust fund in
place for the girl's future.
The man did not.
Realizing there were
probably other local par-
ents with similar ques-
tions, Mr. Bartholomew
started brainstorming,
and assembled a focus
group.


From the focus group,
"there were more ques-
tions than I had answers
for," Mr. Bartholomew
said.
The workshop idea took
shape.
So Mr. Bartholomew
wrote a grant request to
both Quail Valley Charities
and the Johns Island Com-
munity Service League. He
declined to disclose the
amount of the grants, but
said they provided enough
for Sun-Up to offer the
workshops for free.
"It was a nice grant," Mr.
Bartholomew said. "Quail
Valley and Johns Island
both, they're very gener-


ous folks."
The workshop series,
titled "A Blueprint for Suc-
cess: Your Child's Future
and What You Need to
Know," will be held at Sun-
Up, which is located at
2455 Fifth St. S.W.
Free pizza will be served,
and door prizes will be
offered.
The first workshop,
scheduled for April 24 at 7
p.m., will focus on setting
up a trust fund for a spe-
cial needs child. Often-
times, Mr. Bartholomew
said, parents of a special
needs child do not plan for
their child's financial
future.


"This is very valuable to
people who have special
needs," Mr. Bartholomew
said.
At the second workshop,
scheduled for May 29 at 7
p.m., a representative
from the Social Security
Administration will dis-
cuss the Social Security
benefits that are available
to people with special
needs or developmental
disabilities.
In the coming months,
other workshops will cover
therapy options and pro-
vide a roadmap for par-
ents to navigate the
bureaucracy to find a doc-
tor or dentist who works


with special needs chil-
dren.
The workshops will be
held every month until
November. Experts from
the Indian River County
School District, Florida
Atlantic University and the
private sector were tapped
as speakers.
"Everyone I talked to
wanted to jump on board,"
Mr. Bartholomew said.
Reservations are
requested for workshop'
participants.
To make a reservation,
call (772) 770-6626. For

Rants. 4A


Got something to say?

Call the Hometown Rants & Raves line at

(866) 465-5504
or e-mail to veronews@hometownnewsol.com.
Callers are asked to refrain from making slanderous
statements. Statements of fact will be checked for
accuracy.

Stop dirtying the canals

This is directed at the people who throw trash in the
canals.
By throwing your trash, you foul the canals, and by dis-
carding your garbage, you invite the rats, the bugs, and
other animals.
They will not stay by the canals exclusively. They will
visit your homes. Good luck.

Good Samaritan

This rave is in response to the recent news story of a
homeless man who rescued two passengers from their
plane after it crashed in a Delray Beach field.
Perhaps he might be blessed to receive a place to live
for being a Good Samaritan? Wouldn't that be sweet?
The Bible says, "Do not forget to entertain strangers,
for by doing so, some people have entertained angels
without knowing it" (Hebrews 11:2). Thank you.

I need help, too

This is in response to the in the lady who wrote in
about her grandson needing medical attention about his
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and how they
are Americans.
Well so am I, and I also need help. I am 51, and mar-
ried. My husband works, but has no medical coverage at
work, and I am pre-existing with my medical problems.
My medical problem is why I no longer work. I worked
13 years in one place, trying to live the American Dream.
I cannot afford my medication, for it is over $1,000 a
month. So I do with out it.
I also am an American. I get no from my own people. I
was told that I can't get help paying for my medicine
because I do have Medicare.
Go figure that out, because I can't.
I am on Social Security disability,. and cannot get help
for my medicine but I am still trying.
Great, huh?

Review of animal control needed

Recent scandals regarding animal control officers, and
their staff and supervisors, indicate that a complete
review of this agency is needed right away.
The appointment of a qualified administrative type
veterinarian would be a start.
Rewrite the regulations, and update the qualifications
of the animal control officers to a national norm.
The director should have the authority to replace or
reassign staff as needed.
Let's do it now.

The historical vacuum

I'm responding to the rant "Time to bring back prohibi-
tion."
I'm curious if this person is living in a fantasy world
and an historical vacuum.
Prohibition: Organized crime seeded and funded it so
they could move into legitimate businesses, and they're
still there.
Abolishing tobacco: Canada didn't even do that. They
just taxed it heavily, up to $7 a pack. A of couple year's
ago I read in the appear that Canada's main commodity
of smuggling is cigarettes.
Drugs: That's a whole different story. It breeds violence
and turf wars.
Trying to abolish tobacco and alcohol, this isn't going
to work. That is how speakeasys got started and people
got rot gut that killed them because it wasn't controlled.
Children dying: It happens every day. It's tragic, but I
think even to suggest getting rid of alcohol, though no
politician would, is sadly a knee-jerk reaction to an
admitted tragedy.

An unfair stop?
On my way to work at 1:30 a.m. I stopped at a red light
even though it was deserted and already had my turn sig-
nal on to turn right. All this is out of habit.
As I started turning, flashing lights were behind me and
I was pulled over by a sheriff.


I was told that one headlight was out and I ran a red
light. I asked him what red light I had run and he got mad
at me.
I already had my driver's license ready and my dome
light on. He asked if my driver's license was any good.
He then ran a thorough check on me. He wrote me up
for running a red light. I asked him which headlight was
out and he told me to look for myself.
Then he wished me a good night, which wasn't funny. I
was polite the entire time, even adding a "sir."
I'm 53, balding with glasses and a pot belly, and those
are my good features.
Was I a threat?
Was the sheriff bored or trying to meet a quota?
I would fight it, but it's his word against mine and there
were no witnesses.

Cut school taxes

I think what we need to do is tell the lawmakers that
besides the property taxes the school taxes should come
down.
The state is responsible because they mandate a very
high level for the schools. If they (lower) the mandate,
that would reduce the taxes.
The property taxes aren't killing the people; I think it's
wasting money in the school system. Time and time
again, you read it in the paper.
Why don't we just get rid of part of that? I think that
your tax bill for a year will come down.
I think this would be a step in the right direction for our'
lawmakers. I went to a meeting and nobody brought up
about school taxes. This is what drove my mom to the
ground in NewYork. The school taxes ate her up because
the school tax was four or five time higher than property
taxes and that is happening here.
They're just throwing the money away at different
things instead of doing what they should be doing.

Sunnis vs. the Shiites?

The people who seem to think that it's the Sunnis fight-
ing the Shiites in Iraq are absolutely putting their heads
in the sand.
In my opinion, it's the terrorists who are instigating the
Sunnis against the Shiites and they are coming from Iran
and Syria who are doing all of the instigating.
The leaders of Iran and Syria want Iraq for themselves.
They don't want a democracy in Iraq because the people
in the countries might overthrow them to become a
democracy.
Come on, Democrats, wake up. Get your heads out of
the sand and unite beside the people who see the way it
is.
Remember Sept. 11. Unite for all the men and women
who are protecting us and the world against the terrible
terrorists.
The terrorists owe no allegiance to anyone. They are
evil. Kill them over there or they will be here killing us.

Get renters to pick up their trash

Every time I look out of my house there's nothing but
trash all over everybody's yard.
The city should do something about it.
People are too cheap to use plastic bags or pick up the
trash they make mainly cause they are all renting and
don't care.
It really hurts good tenants or house sales already in a
(crumbling) market.


Even a trailer park is cleaner than this residential
neighborhood.
I am tired of picking up everyone's trash, and don't
blame Waste Management, because I watch them do a
good job. It's the renters.

Likes snowbird tax, political rants

I'd like to agree with the idea of a snowbird tax (Rants &
Raves, March 30).
My wife has emphysema and so camping during the
summer is just not practical for us.
We have an RV and enjoy the state parks, but during
the cooler months when we'd be able to go, they are
always booked to capacity a year in advance with snow-
birds.
I'd like to see the state have a higher rate for snowbirds
and to set aside a few spaces for residents only.
We need the revenue the snowbirds bring into the
state, but we also (want to) enjoy the facilities that our
taxes pay to create and maintain.
I'd also like to reply to the political and liberal rants in
that same issue.
It seems to me that the purpose of your paper should
be to reflect the views of your readers.
If you are publishing a fair sampling of the comments
submitted by your readers, and it appears to me that you
do, then whether there's more liberal or conservative
points of view expressed is merely a reflection of views of
your readership.
Since the Republican Party has gone from conservative
to hard right, there're a lot of us conservatives who are
now considered liberals, so maybe that's why you get
more liberal comments than you used to.

Snowbirds pay their fair share

A ranter in your March 30 edition wanted a tax on visi-
tors to the state.
There is currently a 3 percent tourist tax, sometimes
called the resort tax, that visitors pay on hotel, motel and
resort rentals.
This will increase to 4 percent in May 2007.
They are also taxed for every purchase they make while
in Florida, just like the residents.
The only tax they avoid is the personal property tax,
including real estate. Since they don't have kids in school,
don't require police protection for their homes and busi-
nesses, don't need firefighting services to save their
homes and property and don't need or use a lot of the
other services that property taxes pay for, I don't think
they should have to pay those taxes.
They also have to pay higher fees for golf, fishing and
hunting.
If the ranter (was) a little better informed, (he) would
realize that it is largely the revenue from snowbirds that
allows us to do without a personal state income tax and
that the industries that the snowbirds deal with provide
jobs for Florida residents.

Snowbirds should decide
where they want to be

I must agree with the writer who wants a snowbird tax.
With obvious wealth, if they want to play, make them
pay,
I do wish they'd make up their minds just where they

want to be and what they want to do with
the rest of their lives.
This burning the candle at both ends,
and in the middle, just doesn't cut it.
Be here, be there or someplace else.

Snowbirds' flight
would sink Florida

You labeled us "Rude," "Ungrateful,"
"Tightwads" why not refer to us as RUTS
instead of snowbirds?
Snowbirds is too gentle and polite.
If permanent residents own the state of
Florida, perhaps they should petition
Gov. Crist to enact legislation to ban all
out-of-state visitors such as snowbirds
and tourists.
Snowbirds, or RUTS, would have to look
for a friendly, warm state, perhaps not as
nice or convenient as Florida. Maybe
Florida could develop a type of concen-
tration camp in Georgia or in the Caroli-
nas. I don't think the 2.2 million Canadi-
ans who spend their time and, yes,
money, in Florida would prefer that
either.
If snowbirds and tourists are banned, it
would affect all aspects of life in Florida.
Disney and other attractions would close
or raise the admission. Tolls would cost
more. Many of your favorite restaurants
would close. Ron Jons would have a close-
out sale.
As for the yard sale, think of it as help-
ing get rid of your junk.
To enforce any ban on out-of-state visi-
tors, perhaps a fence could be erected
along the border of Florida and Alabama.
Gov. Crist could request. the National
Guard patrol the border and have a snow-
bird and Canadian holding station for
those caught trying to sneak into the
state.
Without snowbirds or tourists, the gov-
ernor would have to consider a state
income tax, which most states have.
Every year, you (could) look for the tax
bill and not the snowbirds, which I hope
will make you happy.
I must leave now, going back to Con-
necticut, but sorry to tell you, I will
return.

Service should increase to
match postage increase

Yes, fellow readers, the postage stamp


will be increased again.
Too bad they don't increase their serv-
ice. There are times I get (mail) for people
who live more than a few blocks away.
I thought the sorters were to make sure
the right person gets the right mail. After
all, that's what they get paid for.
I think it's time the right thing is done
when it comes to our mail.
Speak up people. For if we don't, noth-
ing will change.

Road rules seem to vary

I am fed up with hearing about the bad
habits of Floridians-on the road.
No matter where you are from you
probably think the only correct way to
drive is the way they do it back home.
Consider there are 49 other states and
(who) knows how many other countries
that have drivers on the roads of Florida,
each absolutely sure that the only way to
drive is their way.
Is it any wonder that you see so many
stupid things on the roads?

Stop whining,
embrace airport security

I have a rant, a huge rant, in response to
"Treatment at airports unfair."
I am a flight attendant with seven years
under my wings, and I think that rant was
the most asinine I have ever read.
A few key points:
In the Orlando airport, there are
numerous signs leading up to the security
checkpoint stating that lighters are not
allowed on the airplane or through secu-
rity.
If your daughter's lighter had so much
sentimental value she should have paid
attention to the instructions provided
and removed her lighter from her carry-
on bag.
Losing it was the price she had to pay
for not doing as instructed.
Your bag was dumped out and searched
by strangers. So what?
That is called security. Would you rather
no one's bags are searched, or are you
special?
If it bothers you that your change was in
the bottom of your purse, then get a coin
purse and use it.
Your friends from other areas won't visit
you here in Florida because they don't
want to be searched at airports? Why are
they afraid to be searched?
They refuse to be treated that way as

Doctor Leslie
Huszar, a board
certified neurolo-
gist with the
Indian River
Medical Center,
checks on Jacquie
Smith during a
clinical trial at the
Indian River
Medical Center
Clinical Research
Center last Friday.


Trials
From page Al
enrolled," she said.
Some patients sign up
for the trials after hearing
about them from their
doctors. Others, like Ms.
Smith, learn about the
studies from advertise-
ments.
"All of the patients' care,
diagnostics, medicine is at
no cost to them as a bene-
fit to them being in the
study," Dr. DelVecchio
said.
To enroll, patients are
asked questions to see if
they qualify for the study.
They also consent to turn
over their medical history
to researchers.
Dr. DelVecchio and her
four-member staff work
out of a second-floor
office on IRMC's sprawling
campus. The drug maker
decides how many visits to
the center's examination
rooms the patient will
make during the course of
the trial.


But participating in a
trial is more involved than
a visit to the doctor's
office.
"A clinical trial differs in
many ways. It's a much
more controlled environ-
ment and much more
structured," said Dr. Leslie
Huszar, an IRMC neurolo-
gist and the principal
investigator on the cen-
ter's mild memory loss
study.
"And also, you have to
make sure that they take
the medication or the
placebo correctly," he said.
So far, he has seen the
six patients that have
enrolled in the trial. Par-
ticipants see the same
doctor and coordinator
throughout the duration
of the study.
"Of course, everybody
hopes to be on the drug,
but they know it's 50-50,"
Dr. Huszar said.
In the late 1980s, Dr.
Huszar oversaw seven
patients during the clini-
cal trial for tracine, mar-

keted as Cognex the
first drug approved to treat
Alzheimer's disease.
Research conducted at
IRMC is combined with
data gained at other trial
sites across the country.
Throughout the trial,
and long after the data is
collected, pharmaceutical
companies remain tight-
lipped while the results are
weighed.
"We're dying for feed-
back, but we know we just
have to sit tight and see,"
Dr. DelVecchio said.
Her goal for the center is
to increase the number of
in-patient studies. Now,
about 20 percent are in-
patient studies.
Dr. DelVecchio envi-
sions an even split
between in-patient and
outpatient studies.
As the number of stud-
ies increases, she said, the
number of in-patient
studies and outpatient
studies should even out.

Horizon horticultural group wins award


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

VERO BEACH Hori-
zon Horticultural Group
of Vero Beach recently
received a special recog-
nition award at the
annual Spring Expo,
sponsored by the Tampa
Bay Wholesale Growers
Association.
The award was a "spe-
cial recognition" citation
for Horizon's imaginative
booth display, and the
superior quality of the
plant material in the


booth, including palms,
bamboos, woody orna-
ments and perennials.
"We are very proud and
appreciative that the
association decided to
present us with this
award," said Mike Bertin,
general inanager of Hori-
zon's Nursery and Land-
scape Supply Division,
which received the award.,
The 79-member grower
association's annual
Spring Expo is one of the
premiere horticultural
events in the Southeast.
More than 360


exhibitors, and thousands
visitors from around the
country attended the two-
day event at the Florida
Fairgrounds in Tampa,
which features new prod-
ucts and services and
emerging trends from
every sector of the indus-
try.
The program also fea-
tured a "Tree and Land-
scape Short Course" for
continuing education
credits, with presenta-
tions by a number of lead-
ing horticultural experts
from government, and the


academic world.
Founded in 1992, Hori-
zon Horticulture Group
consists of four divisions,
including Horizon Land-
scape and Design, Hori-
zon Wholesale Nursery,
Horizon Garden Centers,
and Horizon Tree and
Palm Farm.
, Horizon recently was
recognized by the Florida
Nurserymen's and Grow-
ers Association for having
a staff with one of the
highest numbers of certi-
fied horticulture profes-
sionals in the state.




Chamber


honors


past


leaders


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS
VERO BEACH The
encyclopedia definition of
a chamber of commerce is
'An association sponsored
by business men and
women to, promote the
mercantile interest of their
city and community."
During its 85 years of
existence, 64 businessmen
and women have accepted
the mantle of leadership at
the Indian River County
Chamber of Commerce,
and have served the com-
munity far beyond this
interpretation.
"Chamber past presi-
dents, now referred to as
chairmen, bring an unpar-
alleled understanding of
how the chamber has con-
tributed to business, and
the well-being of the com-
munity," said Penny Chan-
dler, chamber president.
"The chamber recog-
nizes and appreciates the
past presidents' contribu-
tions to the community.
Many leaders have proudly
shared the history of their
term with their sons and
daughters who, through-
out the years, have also
become chamber leaders,"
Ms. Chandler said.
The list is long and
impressive, to say the least,
as on it exists many leaders
who have promoted eco-
nomic vitality in Indian
River County, and a quality
of life that Indian River
County business owners
and residents have come to
cherish.
In the past 85 years, the
Indian River, County
Chamber has worked
hand-in-hand with the
community as a force to
effectively cultivate, pro-
mote and enhance eco-
nomic strength.
Year after year, it under-
takes an aggressive pro-
gram of work designed to
foster leadership, con-
tribute to the community
at large, and to provide the
highest-caliber of services
possible to its members.
"The focus of the cham-
ber through the years has
been to provide for a
healthy business climate
and tax base" Ms. Chandler
said.
Ultimately though, the
success of the Indian River
County Chamber has been
built upon the involvement
of hundreds of volunteers
guided by the staff and
Board of Directors.
Ms. Chandler stated, "It's
only fitting that we say
'Thank You!' to not only
our past presidents on our
85th anniversary, but all
the former board members
and volunteers who have
served us so well."

BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
VERO BEACH -At
Vision Plus, the hunt for
the latest, most stylish
eyewear takes staff mem-
bers to semi-annual frame
shows in New York City
and Las Vegas.
Their finds await cus-
tomers on the shop's
shelves sleek, sophisti-
cated designs from Fendi,
Lacoste and dozens of
other brands.
Exclusive Seeds of Life
and Alain Mikli frames
also hold court. For some
of these designs, shoppers
would have to drive to
West Palm Beach or
Orlando to find another
shop that carries them.
"I tell people the good
news is that we have over
3,500 frames, and that the
bad news is that we have
over 3,500 frames," said
Lynn Smith, whose staff at
Vision Plus includes six
licensed opticians.
Most optical shops
employ only one, she
noted.
But Vision Plus, located
in the South Vero Square
plaza at U.S. 1 and Oslo
Road, stands apart.
Founded almost two
decades ago by Lynn's
husband, Dr. Kris Smith,
.an optometrist, Vision
Plus offers exclusive
product lines that are not
offered elsewhere in the
region and friendly


Trials
From page A7
Dr. DelVecchio predicts
the two will balance in
about two to three months.
Ms. Smith, at the first of
her eight visits for the mild:.
memory loss study, would
spend about an hour at
IRMC that afternoon.
Ms. Smith, who previ-
ously participated in an
11-year-old long study ast
part of the National Insti-
tutes of Health Women's
Health Initiative, was
familiar with the consent
process and doctor visits.
She hopes her participa-
tion can lead to treatments
for Alzheimer's or demen-
tia.
"If research can help
with some of that, it would
be wonderful," she said.
Dr. DelVecchio said the
opportunity to work at the
forefront of pharmaceuti-
cal research is what draws
doctors to the field.
"We get the first crack at
what's going to be out
there and it's really fulfill-
ing because you look back
when it's on the market
and think, 'Wow, I did that
study,'" she said.

.service, where longtime
customers are greeted
with handshakes and'
hugs.
Opticians, whose
apprenticeship takes
about five years to com-
plete, round out the shop's
specialized staff.
"We work daily with
people with all sorts of
vision problems," Mrs.
Smith said.
Eye care is another key
part of what Vision Plus
offers. Annual eye exams,
especially important
because of the damage
that ultraviolet rays can
cause in Florida's sunny
environment, are critical.
Sunglasses, which Vision
Plus can craft from just
about any frame available,
are a must-have to protect
eyes, Mrs. Smith said.
Following an exam, Dr.
Smith can then prescribe:
glasses or contact lenses
or update the patient's
prescription.
In recent years, as
eyeglasses have shed their
geeky reputation, cus-
tomers have begun
snapping up more than
one pair, often to compli-
ment different outfits or
activities.
They're also not limited
to people with vision
problems.
"Sometimes, we'll have
customers come in and
buy a very trendy, high-
end frame and put non-
prescription lenses in


them," Mrs. Smith said.
Soon, Vision Plus will
expand its selection of
children's frames, Mrs.
Smith said.
The experience of the
Vision Plus staff "allows us
to treat every single one of


them with the tools we
need to," Mrs. Smith said.
Vision Plus is located in
the South Vero Square
plaza at 792 U.S. 1.

National Association of Women in Construction names winners


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

The tri-county chapter
317 of the National Associ-
ation of Women in Con-
struction recently named a
member as '"rookie of the
year," and "member of the
year."
Lisa Seavey, of Proctor
Construction, was elected
"rookie of the year," and
Ann Wood, retired from


Surfside Glass, was elected
"member of the year."
Members are judged on
their involvement in the
association.
The rookie of the year
must be in the organiza-
tion less than three years,
while the member of the
year is more than three
years.
The organization is an
association of women
employed in construction.


In 1953 it was founded in
Fort Worth, Texas by 16
women, and was known as
Women in Construction.
In 1955 the organization
was chartered as the
National Association of
Women in Construction
and chapters began in
other states

economically.
"All of this is important
because God lets me
stand among various eth-
nic groups. We are no race,
but the human race," she
said.
Youth -and adults gath-
ered to hear messages of
forgiveness, abstinence
and purity.
She helped out by
showing three music
videos that illustrated the
three messages she sought
to convey.
"I want the youth to get
in touch with value and
purity. I still want adults to
know it is their responsi-
bility to rescue the youth,"
Ms. King said.
She conveyed her mes-
sage by speaking about
reality and relating it to
biblical issues. Some


adults could truly relate.
"She made me see
things differently not
because she's a King. I was
inspired by her message of
focus, dedication 'and
prayer. I just hope the kids
received as much as I did,"
said Lashanda Lattimore
ofVero Beach.
Not only did her mes-
sage reach adults, but
children as well.
"I received that you
should forgive people
because if you don't it will
hang over you," said Bri-
anna Rolle, student and
peer mediator at Gifford
Middle School.
In the end, parents say
they heard her loud and
clear.
"I hope everyone
received the importance
of abstinence and how

sacred life is. They should
know the importance of
family and morals," said
Millicent Carpenter, men-
toring coordinator at the
Gifford Youth Activity
Center.
Others think her per-
sonality helped the youth
receive her speech.
"She came across per-
sonable, not like she's
preaching to them," said
Janet Bollinger, member
of Republicans for Life.
Although she does not
support abortion, she no
longer celebrates her
March 22 birthday. She
instead remembers lost
lives on January 22, which
is the anniversary of. Roe
vs. Wade, a 1973 Supreme
Court decision that legal-,
ized abortion in all 50
states.

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


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


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

It was a touching sight
that I'll never forget.
After lunch we began our
camel trek. I've reluctantly
ridden many a grouchy
camel in my day, but this

camel was quite sweet.
To say our trek was
magical through the ever-
changing colors of the
dunes is an understate-
ment. Eventually, some of
us decided to climb the
dunes.
Our guides went first, but
when we started to struggle,
they unwound their turbans
and used them as ropes to
pull us up.
Finally, we reached the
top as the sun began to set.
After watching the gorgeous
sunset, it was time to climb
down. Some people walked,
while others sat and
gleefully slid down the
dunes as if sledding.
Soon it was time for
dinner, drumming and
some Moroccan dancing.
It was a lot of fun, topped
off by my being serenaded,
under the desert stars, by
our guide, Ali. It was just
another one of those
magical Moroccan
moments.
Later, I walked to the
more elaborate tent I had
been asked to try. It had a
real bed, but no better
protection from the winter
cold.
The six wool blankets
didn't help much, but I
finally slept. However, it
wasn't long before I was
wakened to view the
sunrise.
Reluctantly, I dressed in
everything I had and
walked to the dunes for
turned out to be the slowest
sunrise ever and I was
freezing, but once the sun
came up it was exquisite.
Our group left after
breakfast, complaining
about the cold, but knowing

able experience. I'd certain-
ly recommend it, but just
try it in warmer weather.
From the desert, we drove
through the valley of 1,000
Kasbahs. In the spring when
the roses bloom, the
"Festival of Roses" is
conducted here.
The valley was beautiful,
but it must be gorgeous
when it's filled with flowers.
Soon we saw the Atlas
Mountains as we headed to
Ouarzazate.
Once we settled into our
hotel, we finally washed off
the last sands of the desert.
The next day we toured
the hauntingly beautiful
kasbah of Ait Ben Haddou
before shopping and lunch.
Then we visited one of
Morocco's famous film
studios. Morocco attracts
movies that call for Styro-
foam-painted Egyptian
temples and biblical villages
set in desert locations.
From Ouarzazate we next
explored the walled city of
Taroudent then we drove to
the Imperial City of Mar-
rakesh.
With the Atlas Mountains
as a backdrop and palm
trees all around, Marrakesh
looks like a picture post-
card;
We toured the Elbadi
Palace, various tombs and
gardens, but mostly we
shopped. The colorful souk
(market) is legendary and
after exploring it together,
we were left to our own
devices. People bought
everything from large doors
to rugs, from fancy slippers
to perfumes. I bought a big
hanging lantern that I had
no idea how to get home,
but I did.
The next day we took a
relaxing carriage ride to a
local art museum, but soon
were ready for our daily fix
of the souk. In the evening
we attended a splashy
dinner in tents, with
dancers and horseback
riders as entertainment.
It was a bit over the top,
but a fun way to end our
stay in Marrakesh.
With our tour winding
down, we headed to
Morocco's coast. As we
drove through the country-
side, we stopped to marvel
at all the goats in trees. They
climb up to eat argon nuts,

20th-Century
Jewelry
The jewels of Spanish
painter Salvador Dali
were more extravagant
and were more repre-
sentative of design for its
own sake than as a func-
tion of the jewel to be
worn. Although a great
deal of modern jewelry is
designed and made by
large firms, the tradition
of the artist craftsmdn is
strong in Scandinavia
and the United States,
where silver, semi-
precious stones, ham-
mered copper, and
other less costly materials
are commonly used.
Plastics are often
employed in expensive
jewelry. Arts-and-crafts
shops produce vast
selections of abstract
and naturalistic designs
in rings bracelets, ear-
ings, necklaces, and
brooches. Although jew-
elry in the 19th and early
20th century was worn
primarily by women, in
the late 20th Century
some men were wearing
jewelry such as
neckchains, bracelets,
and earrings.

"Go Higher-Get Accept-
ed" events, on April 14
and 21, to help high
school seniors get accept-
ed to college before they

better job opportunities
and even a longer life
span.
"Go Higher-Get Accept-
ed" events offer seniors
hands-on help to assess
their career interests and
decide the type of degree
or certificate to pursue.
These events also offer
information about apply-
ing online, through
www.facts.org, and about
finding and applying for


financial aid.
The two Saturday
events at IRCC will each
be held from 10 a.m. to 1
p.m. in Crews Hall (W
Building) at the Main
Campus, located at 3209
Virginia Avenue in Fort
Pierce.
Seniors who attend
either Saturday event will
receive a coupon for a free

Eventually, we reached
the ocean and the charm-
ing, whitewashed village
of Essaouria. We stayed in
a colorful riad (think bed
and breakfast), where we
were treated to dinner,
music, dancing and
drumming once again.
The group would have


one more day in Casablan-
ca, but I was off to Egypt to
lead a tour there.
On our whirlwind two-
week trip through Moroc-
co, we covered so much
ground that we took bets
on the number of miles
covered (about 1,300). I
loved the sights, the
sounds, the land and the
people. Would I go back?
Yes, and I plan to go for
this June's annual "Sacred
Music Festival for World
Peace" in Fez.


Would I urge you to go
to Morocco? You bet;
anytime.

f you have ever visited
South Carolina during
the summer, you will
see endless rows of color
in many neighborhoods.
Most likely the plants
you are looking at are
crape myrtle.
Although they are not as
widely used in our area,
they can grow equally as
well in Florida.
Crape myrtle (lager-
stroemia indica) is a
versatile flowering shrub
that boasts glowing
summer color sure to
delight the senses.
The plants, which
require minimal mainte-
nance, are extremely
draught resistant once the
plants are established.
They are ideal for commu-
nity planting for this
reason.
The only disadvantage is
that the plants loose all
their leaves and flowers
during the winter and
become dormant.
Crape myrtle will grow
efficiently in almost any
soil type, but they will,
have an advantage if you
use good quality topsoil.
For proper preparation,
dig a hole at least twice the
size of the root ball. When
setting the plant into the
hole, be sure it is not any
deeper then it was in the
original container.
Fill the remaining space
with the high quality

topsoil I mentioned
earlier.
Be sure to water the
plant thoroughly and use
the water to fill push soil
into any open cavities that
might exist under or
alongside the plant.
It is a good idea to mulch
around the plant, as this
will conserve moisture and
also aid in weed control.
Although the plants will
tolerate draught, it is a
good idea to water crape
myrtle at least once a week
until they are well estab-
lished. Watering once a
week during the prime
flowering season also
helps the plants produce a
bumper crop of color.
The best time to prune
plants is in winter when
they are dormant. This
way, you will not remove
any of the flower buds.
Pruning helps the plant
produce an abundant
array of color during the
summer blooming season.
Crape myrtle can benefit
from a seasonal fertilizing
program.
Use an all-purpose 8-8-8
or 16-4-8 as the fertilizer of
choice. If you have some
10-10-10 in your garage,
you can use that also.
Only apply a light
sprinkling around the
plant, as too much fertiliz-
er can either burn the
plant or cause rapid
growth with little flower

Although rooting hor-
mone is not always
necessary, it can be used.
The cuttings will do best
if they are put in a good
quality-rooting medium,
such as Jiffy Mix, or
equivalent.
Retain moisture by
covering the plants with
plastic to form a sort of
"hot house" effect.
Be sure to keep the
cuttings moist during the
rooting process. Do not
put the new cuttings in
the sun.
Although crape myrtle is
mainly disease free, they
can get powdery mildew
from time to time. Spray
with a fungicide at the
very first signs of this
disease.

If you'd like to start your
own plants, crape myrtle
can be easily propagated
from cuttings. The best
candidates for cuttings are
stems that are new, but
mature enough to be
semi-woody in appear-
ance. If you flex the
potential stem to be used,
it should flex without
breaking.

Saving water in the landscape


This year it seems like
the dry season is
getting longer.
Without regular rainfall,
the groundwater and
surface water that are used
for drinking, irrigation,
and recreation aren't
readily replenished. The
demand on these water
resources continues to
increase with over half of
our water used outdoors,
as Florida's population
grows by approximately
900 people per day.
Communities and
government agencies,
such as water manage-
ment districts, are recog-
nizing this resource strain
by implementing water-
use restrictions that
require residents to use
water wisely in the land-
scape.
Not only does this water
conservation ease the
demand on our resources,
but it helps decrease water
costs, electricity costs, and
pollutants that are trans-
ported by irrigation water,
which means saving
money for you.
*Don't drown your grass.
Irrigation should be done
twice a week from March
to October. Apply 1/2 to
3/4-inch water during
each irrigation event.
*Don't set a regular
irrigation schedule, but let

your lawn tell you when it
needs water. The following
grass characteristics
indicate that you need to
irrigate: a blue-green tint,
folded blades, footprints
or tire tracks that remain
in the landscape.
*Use mulch in plant
beds. It helps retain
moisture in the soil and
control weeds that com-
pete with ornamental
plants for water.
*Be plant smart. Use
native or drought-tolerant
grasses, shrubs, and trees
in your landscape. They do
not require frequent
irrigations and can survive
during dry periods with-
out watering.
*Group plants together
that have similar water
needs.
*Install a rain shut-off

(NCDU), changed the art
of amphibious landings.
The UDTs were again
called into combat during
the Korean Conflict. From
the 1950s through the
1970s.

device to your automatic
irrigation system if you
don't have one. The device
turns off or prevents the
irrigation system from
coming on when there has
been adequate rainfall. If
you have a rain shut-off
device, make sure it is
working properly.
*Stop spraying. Install
water efficient irrigation
devices such as micro and
drip irrigation and soaker
hoses in your plant beds.
These devices apply water
right to the plant's root
zone, which reduces water
loss from evaporation.
+Don't over fertilize the
lawn. Fertilizer results in
increasing plant growth,
which increases the plant's
water needs. Excess
fertilizer can be washed
away in stormwater
runoff, which pollutes
bodies of water.
If you have a question
about your lawn's fertilizer


needs, contact the Indian
River County Extension
Service about conducting
a soil test.
Regularly inspect your
irrigation system to ensure
it is operating properly.
Check for leaks and
clogged sprinkler heads.
Readjust sprinklers so
water sprays the grass and
shrubs and not the paved
areas.
Before you decide on
when to irrigate your lawn,
determine if you have
water-use restrictions in
your community. To learn
more about how you can
conserve water in your
landscape, contact the
Indian River County
Extension Service at (772)
770-5030 for more infor-
mation.

Goethe's monumental
masterpiece, Faust.
Boito's Mephistopheles
is perhaps one of the most
stunning and difficult bass


roles in all opera. It is the
opera the great Russian
basso, Mr. Chaliapin,
debuted in at Covent Gar-
den, and later, at the Met
on Nov. 20, 1907.
It was one of Mr. Chali-
apin's signature roles, and
later, American basses.
Norman Triegle revived
it at the New York City
Opera in 1969, after nearly
a 40-year absence in New
York, and Samuel Ramey,
revived the role at the Met
in 1999.
Mr. Gigli appeared in
many performances at the
Met as Faust, and there are
excellent recordings with
Triegle and Domingo, as
Faust, and Bulgarian bass,
Nicolai -Ghiaurov, with
Luciano Pavarotti as Faust.
The subjects of
Mephistopheles are: good
and evil; virtue and sin;


heaven" and earth; Satan
and God.
For his presentation, Mr.
Kleinstiver has chosen the
San Francisco Opera pro-
duction, Tfeaturing Samuel
Ramey in the title role.
The opera studies pro-
gram is a collaboration
between the Vero Beach
Opera and the Vero Beach
Museum of Art.
Both classes take place
at the Vero Beach Museum
of Art Leonhardt Auditori-
um, located at 3001 River-
side Park Drive in Vero
Beach. The cost for the
two classes as a package is
$-25 for museum mem-
bers, and $35 for non-
members. Individual tick-
ets are $15 for museum
members, and $20 for
non-members.

DEVILISH PITCHER


Cliff Partlow/staff photographer
Vero Beach Devil Rays starting pitcher Wade Davis pitched five innings and allowed
four hits and no runs against the St. Lucie Mets at Holman Stadium last Friday night.


Vero Beach provides

little pop in home opener


BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer


When the Dodgers announced late last
year that it would be moving its Single-A
affiliate from Vero Beach after 27 seasons,
one hoped what Yogi Berra said so many
years ago about it not being over 'til it's over
held true.
Well, even the most ardent supporters of
Dodger blue could realize that there would
be no late-inning Kirk Gibson heroics, as the
Devil Rays began their inaugural season at
Dodgertown, er, Holman Stadium Friday
night.
However, their stay will most likely be a
quick one, as the D-Rays have just a two-
year agreement to play in the friendly con-
fines of Vero Beach. A not-so subtle
reminder of this is the makeshift paper sign
reading DEVIL RAYS covering the familiar
DODGERS on the lineup board entering the
stadium.
For now, the Devil Rays are Vero's team,
and with Wade Davis on the mound, the
home opener got off to a stellar start. The
right-hander from Lake Wales got
Emmanuel Garcia to ground to second to
open the game.
Two quick outs later, the side was retired
and it was the hitters turn to etch their
names into the record book.
Unfortunately, Mets' starter Jonathan
Niese matched Davis, pitch-for-pitch and
the duel was on.
In the second inning, Davis got Nick Evans
to fly to right and struck out Daniel Murphy
before Drew Butera smoked a double down
the left-field line for the game's first hit.
With the catcher looming at second, Davis
settled down to get Bobby Malek on a called
third strike to end the threat.
Davis would collect two other strikeouts,
going five solid innings without giving up a
run. He gave up four hits and walked just
one in hisVero Beach debut.
"He did an outstanding job," Dodgers'
skipper Joe Szekely said.
The game remained scoreless until the
seventh. With Jino Gonzalez entering his
second inning of work, Evans led off by
blasting a home run to left. After Gonzalez


got Murphy to ground to second, Butera
smashed his second double of the game
down the third-base line.
Malek followed with a single to right.
Butera was held at third, but Malek moved to
second on Garrett Groce's throw home.
With the Mets' threatening, Szekely
brought in Eduardo DeLaCruz. DeLaCruz
induced Yasmil Bucce to ground to short,
but NeilWalton booted it, allowing both run-
ners to score. Bucce was nailed at second
after a late throw to home, but the damage
was done.
St. Lucie added one more in the next
inning. Emmanuel Garcia led off with a
walk. Jose Castro moved Garcia to second
with a perfectly-placed sacrifice bunt to
third.
After DeLaCruz struck out Dustin Martin,
Evans lifted a fly ball that fell just inside the
right-field line for a double, allowing Garcia
to score with the Mets' final run.
Unfortunately, for the second straight
night, the Devil Rays couldn't generate any
offense. After getting shut out on four hits in
a 2-0 loss to the Mets in the season opener,
Vero Beach could manage only six hits while
still failing to push a run home.
"You can't win when you don't score,"
Szekely said. "We haven't done that in either
game. We haven't been able to get on the
scoreboard."
"We played bad defense and we didn't
swing the bats. We didn't even threaten once
or twice.
"Obviously, that has to change or it's going
to be a long year."
Jacob Ruckle, who followed Niese' five-
inning one-hit performance, pitched three
scoreless innings to earn the win. Gonzalez
took the loss for the D-Ray, in front of 1,783
in attendance who were treated to a fire-
works display after Vero Beach had failed to
light up the sky.
"We did well during spring training,"
Szekely said. "All of a sudden the bell has
rung and we haven't done anything. The
$100,000 question is why.
"We haven't scored runs and that's the
name of the game. We have a much better
team than we're playing right now.
"We have got to get to work."

Devil Rays look for news


waters in Vero Beach


BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer

When Joe Szekely
played for the Vero Beach
Dodgers in 1985, the
Tampa Bay Devil Rays
weren't even a glint in
baseball's eye.
Joining the American
League in 1998, the Devil
Rays haven't exactly been
much to look at however,
posting losing records in
each of its nine seasons.
Fortunately, help is on
its way. The Devil Rays


boast one of, if not the
best, farm systems in
baseball. Of its top 10
prospects, according to
BaseballAmerica, three
will be suiting up for the
Florida State League's
newest addition the
Vero Beach Devil Rays -
under the watchful eye of
Szekely.
Formerly known as the
Visalia Oaks of the
California League, the
Rays' began what will
likely be a two-year
relationship with Vero

Mets, the defending
champs.
The Devil Rays replace,.
the Dodgers who moved,
to San Bernadino, Calif.,,-
to become the Inland
Empire 66ers after 27
seasons in South Florida
The Rays will hope to
duplicate the success of
Tampa Bay's previous
affiliate in the Florida
State League the St.
Petersburg Devil Rays.
That club called the FSL:;

2000 winning the
organization's first title
in its inaugural season.
"Everyone's expecta-
tions coming in is to win,
a championship," Szeke-.
ly said. "We have got a
good defensive club."
This season, the Devil
Rays will look to its
exceptional group of
.players to bring home
another crown, starting
with its trio of talented
pitchers.
Jacob McGee is Tampa.
Bay's No. 2 pitching
prospect and fifth-best '
overall. In three seasons,,
the California native
boasts just a 16-14
record, but has steadily ,

Last season while

As the sun set last Friday evening, St. Lucie Mets players hold their hats over their hearts, as Sgt. Terrance Nelson with
Vero Beach Police Department's color guard sang the national anthem. The Vero Beach Devil Rays opened against the
St. Lucie Mets for the first time in Holman Stadium.

up just 54 runs (44
earned).
McGee is joined on the
Rays this season by Wade
Davis. The organization's
No. 8 prospect also spent
the 2006 campaign with
Southwest Michigan and
put up serviceable
numbers. The right-
hander gave up just 49
earned runs in 146
innings, good enough for
a 3.02 ERA.
His numbers were
down from the previous
season where he excelled
with Hudson Valley.
Davis was 7-4 with a 2.72
ERA. He struck out 97
while walking just 23 in
86 innings.
Competing in just his
third year in baseball is.
the D-Rays' No. 9
prospect Matt Walker.
Walker joined McGee
and Davis at Southwest
Michigan last season and
looks to continue his
ascent to the major
leagues.
The right-hander
lowered his ERA from
5.31 with Princeton in
2005 to 3.18 with South-
west Michigan. He struck
out 68 in 82 innings
pitched while walking 41.
At just 20 years old,
Walker's stock continues
to rise.
"Our pitching staff is
our strength," Szekely
said. "That's the way it
was last year."
Behind the plate
catching the Rays'
hurlers will be a some-
what familiar face for
Vero Beach fans, Sergio
Pedroza.
Pedroza played in 13
games with the Dodgers
last season before being
traded to the Devil Rays.
Formerly an outfielder,
Pedroza sports a .274

average in two seasons in
the minor leagues.
Apart from his brief
stay in South Florida, the
Cal State Fullerton
alumnus tore up the
minor leagues in 2006.
With Columbus, Pedroza
hit .281 with 21 home
runs and 75 RBIs in 89
games.
Moving to Visalia didn't
slow the California native
down as he hit .313 with
four home runs and nine
RBIs in just 29 games.
Another player to
watch will be Garrett
Croce. The outfielder
has two solid seasons
under his belt and looks
to continue to improve
with Vero Beach.
In his first season with
Hudson Valley, the
Georgia Tech product


produced a .322 batting
average with nine home
runs and 35 RBIs. In
2006 with Southwest
Michigan, Croce's
average dipped to .263,
but he still managed 118
hits, 28 of which were
for extra bases.
Croce also had 45 RBIs
and 30 stolen bases to
his credit.
Overall, looking to
steal the hearts of
former Dodgers' fans
won't be a simple task.
But if the Devil Rays
enjoy the kind of suc-
cess that Visalia had
under Szekely's tutelage
last season coming
within an eyelash of the
California League title
-Vero Beach could turn
into D-Raytown.

Gadgets galore strive to help improve game


In this, my final chap-
ter on the 2007 PGA
Merchandise Show, I
want to tell you about the
latest and greatest in golf
accessories.
Every year, more gadg-
ets come out to assist
golfers. Some help stretch
our muscles before we
play.
Others are designed to
help our swings and aid
us in hitting longer,
straighter shots.
There are also some that
protect the healthy
investment in equipment.
Let's look at a few of
these.
Medicus weighted driver
(www. medicus.com)
This is one of the best
swing aids I picked up this
year. Weighing in .at more
than 2 pounds, the driver
is designed to impart a
softer feel at impact for
more realistic feedback
when hitting balls. The
driver will help smooth
your tempo and allows
you to feel where the club
is throughout your swing.
The results are longer,
straighter drives.
Golf Gym
(www.GolfGym.com)
Most recreational
golfers have far too little
free time to work on their
bodies.
With the Golf Gym, you


JAMES STAMMER
Golf columnist

can get a personal work-
out specifically designed
for your golfing needs in a
matter of minutes each
day.
Developed by golf pros
and sports physiologists,
the gym uses 25 different
exercises to create proper
swing habits and muscle
memory by exercising
specific muscle groups.
The molded grips help
you learn the proper grip
as well.
Dancin' Dogg
shot making simulator
(www.dancindogg.com)
This super sturdy
simulator measures all
aspects of your impact
and translates that into
information that gives
you immediate feedback
on swing speed and path,
ball spin, trajectory, angle
and distance.
The unit costs less than

$400 and includes indoor-
safe balls, the swing pad
and sensors, cables to
hook it up to your com-
puter and all the software
you need.
Also, you can tee up
alongside Tiger Woods in
the computer golf game,
using your own clubs and
actually hitting shots
while playing great
courses from around the
world without the airport
headaches, all in the
comfort of your own
home.
Kart Kaddy
(www.golfkartkaddy.com)
My favorite accessory
from this year's show is
the Golf Kart Kaddy.
This product hooks
securely onto your golf
bag and then onto the
back of the golf cart. The
design places your bag at
an angle away from the
cart, one more closely
resembling what you get
when you use a pull or
push cart or a stand bag.
The design removes the
stress of over-the-head
repetitive lifting and
returning the clubs to the
bag before and after every
shot. It also makes every
pocket easily accessible.
Clean up time
(www. thepocketbc.com)
Dirt, grass, fertilizer
and the like, all love to
stick to a golf ball.
The Pocket BC Ball
Cleaner is a pocket-sized
golf ball cleaner that
integrates portability with
practicality. Now you can
have a clean golf ball for
every putt and every tee
shot.
The inner lining stays
moist, while the water-
proof outer lining, along
with your pocket, remains
dry. The moisture is kept
locked inside by using a
strong magnetic seal. To
clean up, apply a couple
drops of liquid soap and a
gentle scrub.
Chill Towel
For those unbearably
hot days, the new Chill
Cooling Sport Towel could
be just what you need.
Based in Key West, Chill
International has plenty
of experience in beating


the heat, and has put that
to good use with this
product.
Pre-moistened with a
unique formula that cuts
heat on contact anywhere,
while refreshing and
invigorating, the Chill
Cooling Towel is perfect .
for summer golf. Each 12-
inch by 12-inch towel
comes individually
wrapped and hygienically
sealed and fits perfectly
in your golf bag. I toss
mine into the cooler on
the cart along with ice
and my water bottles.
With the price of clubs
these days, protecting
that investment is a must.
Daphne's Headcovers
(www.daphneshead
covers.comrn)
A family-run company
in business for 25 years
now, Daphne's Headcov-
ers is the leader in the
industry with more than
200 designs to choose
from.
Daphne's latest line is
called "Heads and Tails."
The unique series for
drivers and fairway
woods are full-body
animals that split with the
animal's head to cover the
driver, and its tail for the
fairway wood. The com-
pany even has a new line
for hybrids and large
putters and every cover
comes with a lifetime
warranty.
Sun Mountain
This is one of the top
bag and outerwear
makers in the world. The '
company is constantly on
the cutting edge in terms
of technology. Its latest
bag is called the Hug Bag.
Anyone who walks
knows how difficult those
long walks on the course
can be when carrying a
bag full of clubs and golf
balls. The new system
implemented on the Hug'
lineup transfers the
weight of the bag from
the shoulders to the
waist, reducing upper
body fatigue.
Throw in great features,
such as a lightweight,
plenty of pockets and a
dual strap, and you have

one great golf bag.
Last but not least is my
"product of the show"
award winner.
For the golfer who
cannot decide whether
to ride, carry or pull
their bag, Tri Bag
(www.tri-bag.comrn) has
just what they need.
Fully equipped with
removable wheels, a
dual harness shoulder
strap and a retractable
telescopic handle, the
Tri Bag can be used in
myriad ways.
If you wish to ride, in
one snap, you can
remove the wheels and
store them in the handy
storage bag, keeping
your car nice and clean.
If you wish to use the
bag as a pull cart, leave
the wheels on, pull out
the retractable handle
and off you go rolling
smoothly along on the
sealed twin bearing
wheels. If you need to
pick your bag up during
the round, there is no
problem. The dual
harness system distrib-
utes the weight of the
ultra light bag across
your shoulders and back
just like a backpack.
The Tri Bag comes
loaded with pockets,
including an insulated
snack pouch for drinks
and food, retractable
legs, an eight-way club
divider and six color
combinations.

Gators and Vero lacrosse team score successes


Like in all relation-
ships, the anticipa-
tion of those three
little words can mean
either incredible joy or
devastating agony.
For Gator fans, the
headline blaring from The
Gainesville Sun Duke
Denies Dream signaled
the end of an incredible
run to the Final Four in
the 1993-94 season.
Florida had defied the
odds to match up with
the Blue Devils with a
ticket to the title game on
the line. With the Gators
venturing into unfamiliar
waters and Duke just a
few seasons removed


(Syndicated News) For many people,
sleepless nights are the norm rather than
the exception. While some have a hard time
falling asleep, even more have a hard time
getting back to sleep once they have awak-
ened in the middle of the night. According
to the National Sleep Foundation (NSF), 60
percent of adults or roughly 40 million


American adults suffer from a sleep prob-
lem at least a few nights a week. That's a lot
of people losing a lot of sleep, until now.
"I launched MidNite because I had
a problem for which I could find no solu-
tion," explains Holly Rosenthal, president
of Concepts in Health, a Blauvelt, NY-based
company. "My husband, an anesthesiolo-
gist, developed the product for me, to help


from their back-to-back
championships, fbw
thought the upstarts from
Gainesville had a chance.
But Lon Kruger's boys
fought valiantly like they
did all season, and if it
wasn't for some question-
able calls down the
stretch, it would have
been the Gators squaring
off against Arkansas for
the crown. If was as if the
officials working the
game were saying in no
uncertain terms, this was
well, Duke, and Florida
should forget about this
silly basketball stuff and
gear up for spring foot-
ball.


with my debilitating middle-of-the-night
insomnia."
M i d N i t e ( r )
(http://midnitesleep.com) is a natural sup-
plement that's patented formula is the first
and only that can be taken at any time of
night without morning grogginess. Its natu-
ral sleep ingredient melatonin is chemical-
ly identical to the
one the body
makes to regulate
the sleep-wake
cycle, and its relax-
ation properties
are boosted with
herbals like laven-
der, chamomile
and lemon balm.
Rosenthal explains
that, because not
getting out of bed
is key to falling
back to sleep, the
product was devel-
oped as a pleasant-
tasting chewable
tablet that can be
.M-7 lC cas taken from bed
.<, ,J,'. without water.
,'eJ&,,,l'- , MidNite
has seen tremen-
dous growth since
its launch, as sleep
sufferers discover
there is something they can stake anytime
to get back to sleep. "Within six months of
being on the shelves, it became one of the
top non-prescription brands," says
Rosenthal. "What sets this apart is that it's
made with all-natural ingredients, and you
can take it at any time of the night without
feeling groggy or drugged in the morning,
like you would with others"

It is hard to believe that
so much has changed in
the past 13 years. From
that disappointing night
over a decade ago to the
excitement of joining the
likes of Duke and UCLA in
basketball immortality
cannot be put into words.
Of course, the road was
rarely easy. Despite all the
team had achieved and
accomplished over the.
past few years there were
always the doubters and
naysayers.
Florida is a football
school.
Florida has no tradition
in basketball.
The fervor intensified
not only as the Gators
advanced in this year's
tournament, but also as
Billy Donovan became
the leading candidate to
replace Tubby Smith at
Kentucky.
Donovan buying a one-
way ticket to Lexington
was described as a no-
brainer. The tradition at
Kentucky is richer; the
facilities are better, as
supposedly are the fans.
Well, as a University of
Florida alumnus, I can
happily dispute all three.
With the Gators defying
the odds by closing out a
second-straight title, their
tradition is now not only
rich, but contemporary.
One does not have to
scour the record books or
old newspapers to relive
the Gator glories, as one
would do in the case of
Kentucky.
Kentucky's past is
exceptional, but all


Patients completing

traditions have to start
somewhere. There was no
Kentucky before Adolph
Rupp or UCLA before
John Wooden. Heck, there
were no Chicago Bulls
before MJ or New York
Yankees before the Babe.
The same can be said
for Donovan and the
Gators. Before he arrived,
that run to the Final Four
in 1994 seemed a distant
memory. Now, as a
frequent visitor to
Gainesville, I can safely
say that the anticipation
for basketball season and
satisfaction of seeing the
Gators achieve so much
success is as great or
greater, than what Florida
has done in football.
For years, being in
contention for the SEC
and national title in
football has been expect-
ed. Anything that hap-
pened on the hardwood
was a pleasant surprise. A
winning season or a trip
to the NIT was nice.
Getting to the Big Dance
seemed as impossible as
Bobby Bowden uttering a
sentence without using
the words dad and gum.
Now, that's all changed.
Why would Donovan walk
away from all that he's
built from practically
nothing? Going to Ken-
tucky would mean follow-
ing in someone else's
footsteps. Staying at
Florida would mean
walking in his own.
Just by looking at
history shows just how
special what the Gators
have accomplished truly


is. Only six other schools
have repeated as champi-
ons. Florida's version of
the fab five is the only
group of starters to ever
do it.
To win consecutive
titles at any level is
difficult. Last season, the
Vero Beach High School
girls' lacrosse team
dominated the competi-
tion to the tune of a 25-1-
1 record, and a state
championship. Coming
into this season, head
coach Shannon Dean
knew opponents would
be gunning for his squad.
"Based on last year, we
were ranked No. 23 in the
nation by U.S. Lacrosse
Magazine," Dean said.
"When you-make that list,
it puts a target on you. We
are now a nationally
ranked program. It
requires us to keep up
with the Joneses."
Even Dean's players
knew what to expect this
season.
"We constantly have a
target on our backs,"
LaceyVatland said.
"People are looking over
at us and waiting for us to
mess up.
"I like it. I like going into
a game knowing we're
going to be challenged."
That's exactly what the
Indians have been so far.
Playing their usual former
state champion laden
schedule, Vero Beach has
encountered some
bumps along the way, but
like the Gators, they have
showed they can compete
with virtually anybody in
the country. However, the
toughest road still lies
ahead.
For Florida, the journey
was made a little bit
easier by the outstanding
facilities and fans they
have come to rely on.
When the O-Dome
needed a face lift, what
better way to do it than
with the floor that the
Gators celebrated on in
2006. Jeremy Foley is one
of the best athletic
directors in the country,
and through his efforts he
has attempted to put the
Gators on the map in just
about every sport while
the Florida administra-
tion has provided the
means to do just that.
That is another draw for
Donovan to stay in
Gainesville. When basket-
ball is not in season, he
can sit back and watch his
colleagues bring more
championships to Title-
town. During basketball's
off-season at Kentucky, all
there is to do is watch the
bluegrass grow.
I have always been
impressed by the dedica-
tion and loyalty of the
Gator Nation, not just in

football and basketball
but across the board.
When Florida came up
short in hoops in 1994,
my friends and I were just
one of the few to welcome
the team home at the
airport. When playing for
the SEC title that same
year in football, the
Swamp was filled with
fans camping out for
tickets. In the opening
game of the inaugural
women's soccer season in
1995, Gator fans came out
in droves to welcome its
newest sport to the
program. The faithful
were rewarded with a
national championship a
few years later.
With each passing
season, the Gator fan
base has continued to
grow. And so has their
trophy case.
Some might claim that
Gator fans are obnoxious.
Chanting, "It's great to be
a Florida Gator," after a
win is not about showing
up the other team or its
fans. It's about being part
of something that extends
far beyond the sports
arena.
When I lived in my first
residence hall on campus,
Florida Field was in my
front yard. Later, when I
became a resident assis-
tant I moved a few blocks
away only to have the
O'Connell Center as a

neighbor.
The athletes were not
distant superstars on the
TV screen. They were
classmates and friends. I
have been a sports fan for
many years, but I have
never felt as part of
anything than I have being
part of the Gator Nation.
When I first arrived on
campus, I found a shirt
that let me know that the
University of Florida was
a place that would get
into your heart and stay
there forever.
It was right.
It is great to be a Florida
Gator. It always has been.
P.S. As some people
might contend, I can
safely say that in the four
years I attended UF or

many times I have
returned to Gainesville, I
have never heard the
word y'all uttered. The
University of Florida does
not only excel in athletics,
but academics as well.
For example, U.S. News
&World Report ranks the
undergraduate program
as first in the state of
Florida, as well as 13th in
the United States among
public universities.
I'll put the degree I
earned, as well as the
journalistic ability and
integrity I learned there
against any school,
anywhere.

(Syndicated News) According to the
United States Business Administration, in
2005 there were almost 25 million business-
es in this country. Roughly 99.9 percent of
them were considered small firms, with
fewer than 500 employees. There is no
doubt about the vast array of businesses
that fill each city and town. And there's no
shortage of people looking to start new
businesses each year.
Coming up with the idea for a business is
usually the easy part. Finding out how to
raise capital to get it
going is a whole other
story. And it seems to
be the point that most
people get stuck on.
The U.S., Small
B u s i n e s s
Administration
reports that inade-
quate financing is the
second most common
reason that businesses I
fail, exceeded only by
poor management. So .
the main thing an '' .
entrepreneur needs to
know is where to go to
find the capital to .:.
fund that next great
idea. But that has
always been the tricky :,
part of the business
world. Until now.
"In the past, figuring
out how to raise capi-
tal was the biggest
challenge of getting a
business up and run- .. :,
ning, and for many
people it seemed like an impossible feat,"
explains Richard Singer, CEO of
RaiseCapital.com. "Today, people turn to us
because we help bridge the gap between


the entrepreneur and the investor."
RaiseCapital.com is changing the way that
financing a business has always been done.
Those seeking funds, whether for new or
existing businesses, simply place an ad in
the RaiseCapital.com directory using text
descriptions, photos and streaming video,
then sit back and wait for the replies to roll
in. Meanwhile, investors sift through the
possibilities, deciding where they'd like to
see their money grow. When they find a
venture that interests them, they simply
make the contact,
right through the
,RaiseCapital.com sys-
tem. Their technology
also allows investors
to track all the con-
tacts they have made,
search for opportuni-
ties by zip code, get
industry e-mail alerts
and create a watch list.
t Investors are not
charged anything at
all to see the opportu-
Snities or make any
S contacts.
"RaiseCapital.com is
a win-win situation
for everyone
involved," adds Singer.
"For less than the
S.. price of a daily latte,
entrepreneurs get
quality exposure to
: find the capital they
need. Most start-ups
or small businesses
don't have a lot of
money to spend on
letting investors know they exist.
RaiseCapital.com makes the whole process
a lot less complicated."

VERO BEACH Sixty-three stu-

Each year, groups from around the
world travel to Walt Disney World to
take part in one of the several Disney

Most of the programs take place in,

s time speeding up? It
may not be, but our use
of it surely is.
In previous centuries, it
took several months to get
messages around the world.
Now, with the Internet, a
message can go around the
world in a matter of sec-
onds. This is the electronic
age we live in.
Something else has risen
in our lives along with these
advances that is cause for
alarm. Because of living in
this fast-paced world, our
lives continue to speed up,
but we are gradually
wearing down.
We are caught up in this
whirlwind of activity. It's like
being on a treadmill,
moving forward, but not
really getting anywhere.
The stress of living this
way is eroding the basic
fundamentals of life. ,
It's time to get back to the
basics. So how do we deal
with this imbalance?
We have created a lot of
quick fixes to treat the
effects this stressful way of
life. There are fast food
restaurants dishing out
offerings to the hungry,
weary, overworked and
undernourished souls.

interstates at 80 miles and

JAMES TUCKER
The Spirit Guide
90 and 100 coming up from
behind almost run you off
the road in their haste.
When we watch television,
we are bombarded with
hundreds of miracle cures,
quick fixes and prescription
drugs to relieve what ails us.
The story goes that if we
take all these little white,
red, blue, yellow and green
pills we will feel better, have
less anxiety, reduce pain or
sleep better.
Alcohol is used to relax or
numb pain until it some-
times becomes addictive.
All the quick fixes do is
treat the effects of our
bodies, minds, hearts and
souls breaking down,
instead of removing the
causes.
Is there any hope or
solution to living a better
quality life or removing
some of the quick fix ways? I
believe there is. It begins
when we admit to being
powerless over the outer life,
and begin to want a more
peaceful, healthy, happy
and creative life.
The journey is within, and
the first step is to love
yourself enough, and begin
to listen to and follow the
heart, rather than the head.
The heart is the emotional
intuitive center and the
window to the soul and


instincts. Until we become
centered within and begin
to listen to and trust the
divine inner guidance, we
are shut off from the greatest
source of truth we will ever
know.
Surrender to the heart.
Refuse to let doubt, fear,
guilt, anger and indecision
in the head, overrule the
kind, peaceful, loving,
happy nature living in the
heart. It all comes down to
the choices we make.
If you were to take an
inventory every day of all
the things you think you
need to take care of, then let
the heart tell you if action is
needed on them.
About a third or a half of
the things on the list would
not get time or
attention.Why?
Because the intuition and
instincts through visions
and feelings from within -
know the truth and order of
importance.
The head does not.
It's time to get back to the
basics. Go within and find,
love, nurture yourself, and
make wise choices. This
creates a new feeling of
safety and security. It makes
us happier as well.
Begin to create new causes
that give hope for a better
life. We can't change the
past. Take a good, honest
look at your own happiness
level and create new ways to
make it better.
The universal spirit is
there for us waiting in the
wings for us to call upon it.
Put your higher power first
in life. This opens up a great
reservoir of unconditional
love within us poured out by
the higher power
The next change is that we
begin to love our own or
spiritual families more.
Everyone needs a loving
family to surround us. These


are our roots in life. Without
roots a tree or flower will
wither and die.
After creating spiritual and
family roots then go to the
world.
Going to the world first,
without creating spiritual
and family roots, is the basic
cause of addictions and
quick fixes. You can over-
come much of the stress,
pain and fear in life.
Isn't this the way you truly
want to live?
It's all a matter of getting
life's priorities in line. Then
make wise choices and
create new healthy choices.

No need for phone chat with IM


re you one of the
millions of com-
puter users who
have discovered instant
messaging?
By instant messaging,
I'm referring to those
popular "buddy list"
programs that let you
chat with friends while
you are online.
Do you use one? I do. In
fact, I have accounts set
up with Yahoo Instant
Messenger, AOL Instant
Messenger, MSN Messen-
ger and ICQ.
I have so many instant
messaging accounts that
sometimes it can be hard
to get any work done
with all the chatter.
It's OK though. I can
slink into invisible mode
with all of them and see
who is online, but to
them I appear off-line.
Quiet ensues so I can
get some work done. But
I can also still keep track
of who's online.
To some, instant mes-
saging can seem annoy-
ing, because they haven't
discovered the invisible
mode yet. To others it's a
godsend.
With instant messaging,
many "cube dwellers" in
corporate America can
keep in touch with loved
ones without being on
the phone.
And some of the servic-
es work with a Web cam,
allowing video chat and
even (when conditions
are right) full-blown
video conferencing.
All this from a little
program that loves to
launch on startup.
So, how does one need
to get started with
instant messaging?
First and foremost, you'
need an Internet connec-
tion.
If you are an AOL
subscriber, you have a
buddy list that's already
built into your account.
Your buddy list allows
you to chat instantly with:
any of your buddies that
are online using AOL or
are online using AOL
instant messenger.


I flnUv1I wLl11icw i

Palm Beach Gardens thru Ormnnond Beach


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This


You don't have to be a
member of AOL to use
AIM; you can download it
from www.AIM.com, sign
up and use it through
whatever Internet
provider you choose.
Two more popular
instant messaging
programs are MSN
Messenger and Yahoo
Messenger.
Again, these programs
need an Internet connec-
tion to work, but what
they do is the same: They
let you keep a list of
friends and show you
when they are online.
Some of the features are
different. For instance,
with MSN Messenger,
you can allow a "buddy"
to take over your com-
puter to help with a
repair. You can't do that
with Yahoo Messenger.
When one of your
friends is online, all you
have to do is double-click
on their little icon, and
you can start chatting
with them instantly.
Some services even let
you link up to your cell
phone, allowing you to
see your buddy list and
chat with them from the
road.
So, what's the catch?
Basically, the one
drawback to these
applications is the fact
that your friends all have
to be running the same
flavor of instant messen-
ger programs as you.
That's why I have so
many different ones.
Sometimes, persuading
a friend to sign up can


also be tricky, but I have
found that most people
enjoy the benefits
immensely once they
take the plunge.
Now, which one to sign
up with?
Probably the easiest
way to choose a messen-
ger program is to ask
your friends. Send an e-
mail to each and ask if
they use instant messen-
ger, and if so, which one.
Then, if you have some
friends using AIM and
some friends using MSN,
you can install both, or
try to persuade your
friends to switch to one
common program, but -
that's unlikely to happen.
Once you are signed up
with a messaging client,
the next step is to send
notices to all of your
friends inviting them to
join your buddy list.
If they are using the
same instant messaging
program, they can just

find staying in touch with

Pasta Fazool,


Key Lime pie


and fruit salad


H ello, smart shoppers.
Hope you had a
wonderful holiday.
Be sure to check out my
Mother's Day cookbook
special at the end of the
column.
Today's column will have
requests, answers, and
recipes for Pasta Fazool, a
Key Lime Pie that's safe to
eat, and a great fruit salad.

Keep it clean
Something that I've
thought about for years has
been brought to my atten-
tion.
When buying canned
foods or sodas do you just
open the can or pop the top
and use?
Did you ever stop to think,
"Where has this can been,
who has touched it, was an
animal or insect near it?"
I wash all cans, even soda
and beer cans, with ammo-
nia and water or you can use
vinegar.
Wash and scrub, if possi-
ble, all fruits and vegetables.
I'll bet you buy a bunch of
bananas, break one off, peel
it and give it to your child.
Even though the peel is not
eaten, it can be contaminat-
ed. You knowwhat we now
have to do. This is a scary
world we live in.

Recipe requests
Now for some requests.
Marcello is looking for a
stuffed tomato recipe like
his mother used to make.
Elaine is looking for
John Bay & Billie's Grillin'
Sauce in Brevard County, .
Helen is looking for a
recipe for walnuts in syrup.
Barbara is looking for a
recipe for poppy seed rolls.

Facts about honey
Sugar is something we all
crave. While many of us are
trying to cut back on refined
sugar, you might want to
consider using honey to
stave off cravings.
Although it is a sugar (25
percent sweeter than table
sugar), Steven Pratt, author
of"SuperfoodsRx" and
"SuperFoods Health Style,"
says honey offers many
benefits.
He offers these facts about
honey.
Honey contains at least
181 known substances and
its' antioxidant activity
stems from phenolics,
peptides, organic acids and
enzymes.
The darker the honey,
the higher the level of
antioxidants.
Honey increases good
bacteria in the intestines.
It can help lower blood
pressure and cholesterol.
So, let's add some honey to
a smoothie, drizzle it on
fruit, use it on toast or make
my "Let's Empty the Refrig-


I


Romancing the Stove
with Arlene Borg the Grammy Guru


erator Fruit Salad."
Warning: Never give
honey to a baby younger
than 1 because it may
contain C. botulnum, which
can cause infant botulism.
Older children and adults
are not usually affected by
these spores, which are
present throughout the
environment.
Enjoy. See you next week.

Corrections
Due to editing errors, the
March 30 "Romancing the
Stove" column had some
incorrect directions.
When making the Pizza
Granna place 3/4-inch
strips of dough in a criss-
cross pattern on top of the
pizza. Also, the oven
temperature for the ricotta
pie should be 350 degrees E

LET'S EMPTY
THE REFRIGERATOR
FRUIT SALAD (NIB)
Are you tired of looking at
that lonelypeach, plum,
nectarine or any fruit that
doesn't get eaten? Are the
bananas getting too many
brown flecks? Is there only
one slice of melon left?
Here's a recipe to use to
empty the refrigerator.
Remember to peel fruit
only when necessary.
Cut fruit into bite-size
pieces and place in a large
bowl.
Squeeze on some lemon
juice, which prevents fruit
from darkening.
Add 1/2 cup orange juice
or any juice available
(except prune juice).
. 'Melt 1 to 2 tablespoons
honey in 1/3 cup warm
water. Pour over fruit, mix
,well and taste for balance of
sweemess.
For adults only: Spike it up
with a splash of anisette or
schnapps. Cover, chill and
enjoy.
Any kind of fruit can be
used, from fresh to canned
.to frozen.

KEY LIME PIE (NIB)
A key lime pie is pale
yellow. If you want color,
add a few drops of green
food coloring.
In the past, this pie was
made with eggs and not
cooked thoroughly.
Today, with the threat of
salmonella, the ingredients
must be cooked.
To top the pie with
meringue, fellow the recipe
for cooked meringue or buy
powdered egg whites and
follow the package instruc-
tions.
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup flour
3 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups water

However you say it, this is
simply pasta and beans. It is
best made with small
tubular pasta such as
tubetti, tubettini or ditalini.
My mom tells me that
years ago, pasta was sold in

barrels, and the broken
pieces at the bottom of the
barrels were mixed together

Poise, community service

is key to Hibiscus pageant


BY TAMARA DOURNEY
For Homwtown News
Twelve women will
compete this weekend for
Miss Hibiscus queen, a
tradition that started 53
years ago.
- Elizabeth Graves Bass,
who was crowned the first
queen in 1953, will serve
this year as chairwoman of
the Miss Hibiscus pageant.
The pageant is part of the
Hibiscus Festival, which
started in the early 1950s, a
time when the city ofVero
Beach was enjoying a post-
war growth boom. The
festival emerged as a
community event that
brought the residents
together amidst a back-
drop of excitement and
possibility.
The pageant will be held


Friday, April 13, at 7 p.m. at
the Heritage Center.
This year's winner will
receive her crown from the
outgoing 2006 Hibiscus
queen, Jamie Jordon.
Another former Queen,
2005 Miss Hibiscus, Jillian
Molinari, is a member of
the Miss Hibiscus Pageant
committee.
The newly- crowned
queen will not only oversee
the weekend's events, but
will also represent historic
downtownVero Beach
throughout the year.
Besides being honored
during the festival, the
grand prize winner will
receive $1,000, and an
array of gift certificates
from area businesses. The
second place winner will
earn $300. The third-place
winner will get $200.


Organizers say the
winner must have more
than just another pretty
face. The event does not
even hold a swimsuit or
talent competition. "Con-
testants will be judged on
stage presence, poise,
community service,
personality, and a personal
interview," said Beverly
Paris, assistant chair-
woman of he Hibiscus
Festival and publicist for he
event.
The competition is open
to all young women
between the ages of 16 and
21 years old who are
residents of Indian River
County.
One of this year's contest-
ants is 18-year-old Angelica
Fulchini, a senior at Vero

Aries-March 21-April 19
Having both the sun and Mercury in Aries this week is like hav-
ing a sharp two- edged sword working for you. The sun rules the
instincts and Mercury rules the mind. When a good idea pops in
your mind it is coming from the instincts and furnishing inspira-
tion for action. This combination puts the odds or probabilities
of success in your favor. Listen to, trust and take action on this
divine guidance and you will be victorious.
Taurus-April 20-May 20
Keep your happy, positive attitude going. It is contagious to oth-
ers. When you are happy, others around you are happy. You are
a leader by example. You don't ask of others what you wouldn't


give first yourself. Your great heart gives encouragement to all
around you. You have earned respect by living this way. Stay
focused and grounded and live one day at a time. This keeps
you psyched up and ready for new adventures. Be assured that
more are on the way.
Gemini-May 21-June 21
Venus in Gemini this week gives you an emotional boost and
edge. Take action on that idea you have been sitting on. It will
have a blessing and want to grow and increase. This puts peo-
ple around you in awe, saying, how did you do it? Say, a little

Pageant
From page D1


Beach High School. Miss
Fulchini, who is the
president of the student
government, has partici-
pated in many community
service events through the
school, including working
with Habitat for Humanity,
Toys for Tots and local
organizations that host
beach cleanup days. She
has also started a unique
community service project
that brings the performing
arts to local elementary ,
schools.
Miss Fulchini, a ballet
dancer, performs a selec-
tion of popular fairy tales,
and afterwards invites the
children on stage, teaching
them some of the more
basic moves.
"I have never done a
pageant before and this is
completely new for me",
Miss Fulchini said. "My
next- door neighbor had to
push me into participating
at first, but it has been a
great opportunity. I love
that the contest winner will
be able to expand their.
community service
through the organizations


she will represent."
Other contestants are,
Samantha Lee,18; Jessica
Gable, 18; Ashley Durst, 18,
Melanie
Kraftchak, 20; Cassondra
Veneziano, 16; Morgan
Clay, 17; Alyson Ryall, 16;
Ashley Wooden, 18;

Kimberly Bath, 19.
The Hibiscus Pageant
remains an important part
of the larger Festival, which
is a testament to Chairman
Milt Thomas and the
organizational power of the
15 sub-committees that are
the driving force behind
the event.
Mr. Thomas said he
believes that the Hibiscus
Festival has a positive
impact on the local area.
"The Festival is not just a
fundraising event; it is
really a community-
building event," Thomas
said. "In 1953, Vero Beach
was very small, and just
about everything that
happened took place
downtown. Over the years
the county expanded and
the downtown area had
less significance. We
started changing that


around 10 years ago by
holding activities to get
people interested in
spending time in down-
town," he said.
Proceeds from the
Hibiscus Festival go to the
Indian River County
Historical Society, The
Heritage Center and Main
StreetVero Beach, which
work together to produce
the Festival.
The schedule includes
besides the pageant, a 5k
Run, a luau, a farmer's
market, an antique
appraisal event known as
the Hibiscus Festival
Antique Road Show,
children's activities, and an-
antique car show.
The Hibiscus Pageant will
take place Friday, April 13,
at 7 p.m. at the Heritage
Center on 14th Avenue in
Vero Beach. Admission is
free and the pubic is
invited to attend.

performs a the classic
murder mystery Clue.
The event, which
includes a spaghetti din-
ner, is not solely for enter-
tainment.
The Face 2 Face youth,
group of Crossroads
Christian Fellowship will
be performing Clue to
raise money for the
church's mission trip to
Monterey, Mexico.
"A spaghetti dinner is
normal for us, but the
murder mystery was a
way to get the youth
involved," said Eric Hurst,
director. "It will be a nice
night out."
John Stranzin, youth
pastor at Crossroads
Christian Fellowship, has
traveled to Mexico every
summer since 2001.
"The Mexican children
remember the youth. We
have a universal language
of love, and it goes so far,"
he said.
For the past three years,
the youth have helped
build the Crossroads Mis-
sion Training Center in'
Mexico.
On this trip, they will be
building a home for a 24-
year-old couple with
three children. The home
will have two bedrooms.
To raise money for the
trip, the youth have been
practicing for six weeks
on their dinner theater
performance.
All of the proceeds from
the dinner theater will
fund the mission trip to
Mexico and material for
the home.
"We are looking to raise
over $7,500 mostly for air-
fare," Mr. Stranzin said.
The church hopes to
raise $16,000 for the total
trip.
Twenty-two people will
attend, including 16 teens
and six adults.
But the youth definitely
don't see this as a vaca-
tion.
"When I come back
from this trip I will be


more appreciative of the
things I have and grow
closer to God," said Kellie
Hurst, a freshman at
Sebastian River High
School.
Although the trip is a
first for some, most of the
youth have traveled to
Mexico several times.
"I like the kids in Mexi-
co. The trip was my first
time praying in public,"
said Andrew Stygar, a
sophomore at Sebastian
River High School.
Church member Erica
Hurst describes the trips
as her passion. She has
been to Panama and will
be traveling to Peru later
this year.


"The trips help us
change and work hard. We
learn a lot of things that
we wouldn't experience
otherwise. I plan on doing
missions for life, I want to
build them in Central
America," Ms. Hurst said.
The church's pastor also
loves the feeling the youth
get from helping others.
"Our youth get a sense
of helping someone other
than themselves. They get
a sense of what God wants
them to do. God wants to
use them to serve others,"
said the Rev. Michael Lyle,
of Crossroads Christian
Fellowship.
The youth pastor wants
everyone to make a differ-

"When you leave Mexico
and see a glimmer of hope
in their eyes it really
touches you," Mr.
Stranzin said. "I hope they
see when they make a
commitment it's worth
it."
As far as acting goes, a

a good cause and fun.
"I like acting but I'm not

bird told me. That little bird,
the small voice within, knows
and speaks the truth when
you hear and trust it This is a
mighty good way for Gemini,
the great communicator to
live, work and play.

Cancer-June 22-July 22
Your guardian angels really
watch over and protect you.
This really is your own spirit
sending signals up through
your wonderful heart into the
mind. You were born, as the
first water sign, with strong
instincts and heart. Your love
of family and friends is legion.
Your deep roots and faith in
the higher laws has brought
you safe thus far and will
always continue to guide you.

Leo-July 23-Aug. 22
You always come through
when the chips are down.
Your fiery spirit always seems
to pull you through life's chal-
lenges unscathed. Being the
middle fire sign in the zodiac
gives you balance and great
inner strength and endurance.
You never quit until you reach
your goal. Your magnetism
and leadership abilities are
well known. You are also a lot
of fun to be around. Joy, love
and energy are always flowing
through you. You truly are of
the light

Virgo-Aug. 23-Sept. 22
You continue to take your life
to higher levels. You are
always searching for new and


better ways to live. Maybe you
should write a book on how
to live a good life. In this day
and age we all need to hear it.
You live it Keep letting go of
unneeded things and clutter
around you. Do a spring clean-
ing and then a yard sale. Give
unsold things to charity. Don't
take them back inside.

Libra-Sept 23-OcL 22
Affirm every day that you are
continually fed, protected and
blessed by the unlimited good
in the universe. Give thanks
for the many wonderful
friends who grace your life
and bring you so much love
and joy. When you see and
acknowledge the good in oth-
ers, they see and acknowl-
edge it in you as well.

Scorpio-Oct.23-Nov.21
Your teaching talents will con-
tinue to be called upon to
help others learn more about
what you know. Education is
one of your greatest gifts. You
love sharing your wisdom.
When you help someone else
to grow and find his truth, the
joy comes back to you. Keep
refining your dreams and
goals. Stay focused on the
main ones and help them
grow.

Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Lately you have been getting
back to the old ways more
instead of relying on modern
quick fixes. Continue to reeval-
uate your spiritual, emotional


and mental patterns. Get back
to the basics. Find ways to
simplify life rather than com-
plicate it You have grown a lot
this past year and it serves you
well now.

Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan 19
Hardship and struggle are in
the past for you. New and bet-
ter things are on the way.
Why? Because you are hard
working and take action to
make things happen. Your
greatest responsibility is to
recognize the right ones when
they appear, and set the most
appealing ones in motion.
Watch for and read the signs
that are coming your way.

Aquarius-Jan. 20-Feb. 18
When you are relaxed, cen-
tered and focused, no other
sign has greater talent than
you to create and accomplish
great visions. You have the
tools and you know how to
use them to inspire others.
You were born to do wonder-
ful things in life and you con-
tinue to fulfill that promise.
Just look around you at the
long list of accomplishments.
You are also a well-loved and
trusted friend. Yours is a high
quality life. You do it all so
well.

Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
Keep your eye on your highest
goal and refuse to let the
world or others bring it down
until you achieve it. Claim
your higher good. Know in


your heart that you are wor-
thy to receive it. Your strong
past efforts are ready to pay
off and bring you present
rewards for all you have


done. Your judgment is
strong. You are loyal. Your
heart is in it. You are motivat-
ed. You can see the finish
line. It's time to catch a sec-
