Candidates: Education is key to prevent gangs


BY WARREN KAGARISE

INDIAN RIVER COUN-
TY The five Republican
sheriff candidates said
better community educa-
tion and more police offi-
cers in schools are key to
cutting crime and keeping
gang violence from creep-
ing into the county.
At their first debate on
May 18, the candidates
sought to define them-
selves in the crowded field
to replace Sheriff Roy Ray-
mond, who will retire at the


end of his second term in
2009. The Republican pri-
mary election will be held
Sept. 2, 2008, and the GOP
nominee will likely face for-
mer sheriff's deputy David
Snell, so far the only Demo-
crat in.the race.
How to address the
specter of gang violence
dominated much of the
two-hour debate.
"Gangs are coming to
Indian River County, and
it's very important that we,
as members of our com-
munity, as parents, as law
enforcement officers, make


that commitment with
children now," candidate
Bill McMullen II said.
The school resource offi-
cer program, he said, could
be used to educate stu-
dents and parents about
gang violence.
"It would be important
for the sheriff's office to
take a lead in educating the
community, offering
forums at the sheriff's office
for the community to be
able to attend, to learn
about gang activity and
what we can do as citizens
to prevent it from taking


over as it has down south,"
candidate Robbie Stabe
said.
Candidate Ed Glaser told
the 150-member audience
about his plan to assign
resource officers to the
county's 12 elementary
schools during his first year
in office.
"That bridge-building
that occurs between those
officers, those deputies,
and those young children is
amazing," he said, adding
that the initial investment
would be balanced later by
savings in juvenile.justice


TAKE THAT!

was new to the No. 2 spot
at the county Health
Department when hurri-
canes Frances and Jeanne

weeks of one another.
At the Health Depart-
ment, she helped coordi-

to the twin 2004 disasters,
and caught sleep on a cot
at the County Administra-
tion Building during the
recovery efforts.
"That was the first time I
really got to see the differ-

last week.
Now, Ms. Swanson is the
new administrator of the
Health Department, step-

months after her prede-

City voters will decide


if election should shift


BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
VERO BEACH City vot-
ers, who have traditionally
cast their ballots for munic-
ipal offices in March, could
instead begin lining up at
polls in November.
First, city voters would
have to approve the elec-
tion switch, which earned
the unanimous support of
the City Council earlier this
month.
Council members unani-
mously approved the meas-
ure on May 11.
Vero Beach City Clerk
Tammy Vock, who recom-
mended the election switch
to the council, said she
polled other Florida cities
and found that the most
hold elections in Novem-
ber.
City voters will be asked
to move the municipal elec-
tion in a special referendum
this November. If passed,
the change will take effect
next year.
Mayor Tom White, Vice
Mayor Sabin Abell and
council member Ken Daige,
who are all up for re-elec-
tion next year, would
remain in office until the

ferent ways," Ms. Swanson
said.
Last fall, a countywide
needs assessment said
access to affordable
healthcare, childcare and
other services must be
expanded.
Ms. Swanson, who led
the team that developed
the assessment, wants
community leaders to dis-
cuss how those recom-
mendations can be trans-
formed into policy.
"She is very well-
informed," said Ann Marie
Suriano, administrative


November election if the
measure passes.
The election proposal fol-
lows the Legislature's deci-
sion to move the state's
presidential primary elec-
tion to Jan. 29.
That would mean county
Supervisor of Elections Kay
Clem and her staff would
have to prepare for two
elections within six weeks,
including sorting through
absentee ballots for both
elections.
If city voters reject the
switch to November, the
city election would be held
Jan. 29.
Mrs. Clem pointed to the
downside of a municipal
election that would fall a
month after the holiday
season.
"Who would want their
direct mail pieces going
out with Christmas mail?"
she said.
Florida cities that vote in
November also reported
higher voter turnout, espe-
cially in even-numbered
years when state and
national issues are on the
ballot.
"We are looking for a big
voter turnout," Ms. Vock
said.

Hospital District, which
funds the county Health
Department along with
the state and federal gov-
ernments.
"She makes sure she
knows everything about
the county, health-wise,"
Ms. Suriano continued.
A Midwesterner with a
master's degree in public
health from Northern Illi-
nois State University, Ms.
Swanson initially studied
exercise physiology.
But her father is a polio
survivor. Ms. Swanson was
inspired as she read about
the anti-polio campaign of
the 1950s, when public
health agencies vaccinated
untold millions against the
crippling disease.
Ms. Swanson, 33, arrived
in Indian River County
almost three years ago, in


During the last city elec-
tion, held in March,
turnout was low at the
city's 11 polling sites. With
two council seats and a
referendum on the ballot,
only 1,818 voters turned
out at the polls.
Sebastian was the first
city in Indian River County
to shift its elections from
March to November.
Sebastian City Clerk Sally
Maio said she was heart-
ened to see Vero Beach
considering the switch to
November.
Sebastian voters decided
during the March election
to move Election Day,
beginning in 2008.
The county's five cities
pay the Supervisor of Elec-
tions Office $2 per voter,
an amount that doesn't
cover the entire election
cost, Mrs. Clem said.
If other cities follow
Sebastian's lead, the bill
that cities pay to the
Supervisor of Elections
Office could decrease
because the municipal
races could be placed on
the same ballot as state and
national races.
"It could be cost-saving to
taxpayers," Mrs. Clem said.

Earlier this month, she

REVIEW


Woman dies after
stepping
in front of train
WINTER BEACH A
woman ran in front of a
moving freight train on
May 14 in what investiga-
tors said was an apparent
suicide.
The identity of the 49-
year-old woman was not
available at press time,
but the Florida Highway
Patrol said her family
members had been noti-
fied.
The incident occurred
on tracks just north of the
71st Street railroad cross-
ing. The womanwas pro-
nounced dead at the
scene.
Her car was along Old
Dixie Highway not far
from where she died.
The woman leapt in
front of the northbound
Florida East Coast Rail-
way train at about, 2 p.m.
on May 14.
The engineer brought
the train to an emergency
stop, and it came to rest
about three-quarters of a
mile north of the impact
site.

Costs rise in city's
fight over power
VERO BEACH The
City Council voted last
week to hire an energy
consultant and a law firm
to advise the city as it pre-
pares to split with its
Orlando-based power
provider.
Council members
unanimously approved
$223,500 to hire Boston-
based CRA International,
a consulting firm, and
Boston law firm LeBoeuf,
Lamb, Greene & MacRae.
So far, the city has spent


at least $2 million for con-
sultants and in legal fees
as it moves to break with
its power provider, the
Florida Municipal Power
Agency.
The city's contract with
the agency expires at the
end of 2009.
City officials have said
the consortium has not
adequately reimbursed
the city for the amount of
power it produces.
Five years ago, the ener-
gy consortium paid the
city $7 million, even
though the maintenance
bill for the municipal
power plant was twice
that amount.
That same year, the city
hired LeBoeuf, Lamb,
Greene & MacRae to
reach an agreement with
the consortium. That
attempt failed.

City could turn to
private
company to revive
golf course
VERO BEACH In the
effort to renovate the for-
mer nine-hole Dodger-
town Golf Course, city
staff members are prepar-
ing a proposal to ask pri-
vate companies to join
forces with them.
The city estimates it
would cost $2.5 million to
renovate the 40-acre
course, which sits adja-
cent to Dodgertown at the
corner of Aviation Boule-
vard and 43rd Avenue. In
2005, Vero Beach bought
the course for $10 million.
Earlier this year, the
City Council directed city
manager Jim Gabbard to
brainstorm ways to
reopen the course.

Everyone knows that
rubies are the highest
valued precious red
gem. One reason is that
they have gone hand in
hand with love and pas-
sion for thousands of
years.
Rubies claim this popu-
larity for many reasons.
They are extremely
durable having a hard-
ness of 9 on the hard-
ness scale (diamond is
a 10). they are also
extremely rare. A superi-
or gem quality blood red
rubie often times fetch
higher prices than dia-
monds.
another interesting thing
about rubies is that they
are the same basic
material as a sapphire.
Many people are not
aware that rubies cgme
n all the colors of the
rainbow, in fact a sap-
phire is the same com-
position as a ruby, they
are both corundum!
Another thing nice about
ruby is that it is also
makes a fabulous gem-
stone for a man's ring.
It's color is attractive but
ruby's durability is
exceptional. The next
time you want to add a
little romance in your
life, think ruby.

-To prevent students from
arriving late to school, the
School Board considered
schedule changes that could
prevent students from arriv-
ing late on school buses and
disrupting classes that have
aleadi br',luii.
One proposal before the
School Board suggests that
elementary students start
school about 30 minutes
later each morning.
Another proposal revers-
es the current order, and
would allow middle school
students to start later than
elementary school stu-
dents.
Under the first proposal,
elementary schools begin at


9:15 a.m. and are dismissal
at 3:45 p.m.
Middle schools, mean-
while, would begin at 8:10
a.m. and end at 2:55 p.m.
High schools would begin
at 7:30 a.m. and end at 2:05
p.m.
Schools would also be
dismissed early on certain
Wednesday.
Under the second pro-
posal, elementary schools
would begin at 8:10 a.m.
and end at 2:55 p.m.
Middle schools would
begin at 9:35 a.m. and be
dismissed at 4:05 p.m., and
high schools would begin at
7:30 a.m. and be dismissed
at 2:05 p.m.
Under this schedule,
schools would also be dis-
missed early on certain
Wednesday.
Board members were
expected to make a decision
at a May 22 meeting. Results
of their decisions were
unavailable at press time.

From page Al
Palm Bay, it's not like it is in
Miami, because we've
stayed on top of it, and we'll
continue to stay on top of it,"
he continued.
For the debate, held at the
Gifford Community Center,
organizers invited questions
from county residents,
drawing nearly 300 in all,
said the Rev. Kyle Gibson,
who served as moderator.
One of the most-submit-
ted questions dealt with

racial profiling by law
enforcement officers, and
how the candidates would
handle the issue if elected.
"Racial profiling is occur-
ring; it can simply be curbed
in a very easy way," candi-
date Daryl Loar said. Law
enforcement agencies have
to identify officers who have
received complaints of pro-
filing and take appropriate
action, he continued. And,
he said, the practice should
be prevented to limit law-
suits, where damages are
paid with taxpayers' dollars.
The next sheriff will over-


see about 500 employees
and a budget of about $45
million. The salary for the
post is $124,455.
Mr. Snell, who was in the
audience for the debate, said
afterward that, as he listened
and took notes, he realized
that his opponents "have
concepts on some of the
issues but are not sure how
they would implement
them."
"One man is not going to
solve it all," he said.
The race to replace Sheriff
Roy Raymond has drawn:
*Former sheriff's Lt. Ed
Glaser Jr., 52, the director of
advanced training for the
Sebastian Police Depart-
ment and a Republican.
eCapt. Deryl Loar, 39, the
Florida Highway Patrol dis-
trict commander for the
Treasure Coast and a Repub-
lican.
*Sgt. Kent Campbell, 42,
the north precinct supervi-
sor with the Indian River
County Sheriffs Office and a
Republican.
*Capt. Bill McMullen II,
44, the administrator of the
Indian River County Jail and
a Republican.
*Lt. Robbie Stabe, 44,
director of personnel stan-
dards and planning for the
Indian River Shores Public
Safety Department and a
Republican.
*Former sheriff's Deputy
David Snell, 51, an unsuc-
cessful candidate for the
post in 2004 and this race's
lone Democrat.
The Republican field will
be narrowed in a September
2008 primary election. Vot-
ers will choose the next sher-
iff on Nov. 4,2008.

Indian River County


honors fallen officers


BY NATASHA CARTER
Staff writer
INDIAN RIVER COUN-
TY Officers, citizens
and county officials cele-
brated a week that pays
homage to officers killed
in the line of duty.
Last week, at the Indian
River County Courthouse
officers held a wreath
ceremony honoring Cor-
poral Richard Rudy
Raczkoski.
Deputy Raczkoski was
shot and killed in 1986
while checking on a sus-
picious person using a
pay phone in front of a
closed convenience store.
While waiting for a cab
to pick the man up a
handgun fell. from the
man's pants.
The suspect picked up
the handgun and, as
Deputy Raczkoski
attempted to fake cover
behind his patrol car, the
man shot him five times
in the back.
The man was appre-
hended and sentenced to
death.
Incidents like this
prompted President
Ronald Reagan to sign
legislation in 1984, which
allowed the National Law
Enforcement Officers
Memorial Fund to raise
money for a monument
to honor fall law enforce-
ment officers.
The monument was
finished and dedicated in
1991 by President George
Bush.
Indian River County
does the same with a
wreath ceremony honor-
ing Deputy Raczkoski,
the only officer in the
county to die in the line
of duty.

The Memorial is in memory of Deputy Richard Rudy
Raczkoski a fallen Indian River County Sheriff's officer,
killed on September 23, 1986 in the line of duty.


"I was the under sheriff
when this happened. It
was tragic and he is rec-
ognized each year," said
Roy Raymond, Indian
River County Sheriff.
The ceremony's
keynote speaker Dr.
Edwin Massey, president
of Indian River Corimu-
nity College, said the day
is an appropriate time to
say thanks to officers that
keep us safe.
Dr. Massey feels the day
is a time to, make the
public more aware
regardless of whether
they know a fallen officer.
"These individuals are
of tremendous courage.
They make our lives safer
and we should respect
the people who wear the
uniform," he said. "Public
service is the most hon-
orable job one can do."


Sheriff Raymond said
people should call atten-
tion to the risk officers
take on a daily basis.
"This week is a time to
recognize men and
women who have sacri-
ficed their lives. It lets
the public know people
are doing everything to
make their world safer
while putting theirs at
risk," Sheriff Raymond
said.
The national monu-
ment wall in Washington,
D.C., now has more than
16,000 names of fallen
officers dating as far as
1792. ,
According to the
National Law Enforce-
ment Memorial Fund

or e-mail to veronews@homwtownnewsolcom.
Callers an, asked to refrain from making slanderous
sstatements. Statements of fact will be checked for
accuracy.


More than just a clothesline

I agree with the ranter who wants to bring back the
clothesline.
It's all true about the energy and the environmental
factor. I personally loathe homeowners associations and
all their stupid rules. I will never live in a community that
has one.
However, there is one other factor that the ranter forgot
about. The time it takes to hang the clothes.
Until I read this rant, I had forgotten about all the
hours my mom and I spent here in Florida out at the
clothesline.
I forgot how much fun it was to hang out with my
mom, and the little line she set up for me and my clothes
next to the "family line."
I forgot about how we kept our flip-flops there by the
door so we didn't burn our.feet on the white concrete
stones out by the line in the summer months.
I remember all the time it took for Mom and I to
rewash the clothes the birds had pooped on, and how
funny we thought it was.
Then there was all the time it took to rewash the
clothes that the family Schnauzer, Toby, ripped off the
line and dragged through the dirt. That, I thought, was
the funniest thing of all!
I remember how much fun it all was before school
became a career, and before video games kept kids incar-
cerated in their rooms.
The clothesline was not only a chore; it was a way of
life, and a great way to bond with the kids.
Now I am all grown up and have two little ones of my
own.
Thanks for reminding me Mr. or Mrs. Ranter about
how much fun it was back then when we took it slow, and
hung out at the clothesline.
Now if you'll excuse me, I am going to the store to get
stuff to put up a clothesline.
Do they still sell that stuff anymore?

Obese people are people

I am writing in response to the rant in which someone
wrote about all medical facilities hiring unappealing,
obese people.
You wonder why kids do not listen, and continue to
make fun of, pick on, and ridicule other kids and adults.
It is no wonder, when you hear, or read, comments like
the above-mentioned rant from so-called educated and
knowledgeable people.
The person who thought, never mind, wrote this stu-
pid comment must be happy in his or her fantasy life,
where all people are thin and very appealing to look at.
The'real world is made up of all kinds of people, thin,
fat, short, tall, etc. Many overweight people are very
healthy. They are people, too.
Instead of looking at their bodies, try looking at their
faces. Smile at them. Talk to them. Maybe then you will
realize they are not so unappealing to look at and to
know.
Get on with your life.

Can we afford open borders
and illegal immigration

When is this country going to wake up?
The Congress and the administration are going pass a
bill for immigration again next week.
I truly wonder just how much but business pays to
keep cheap labor coming. Pardon my error, this labor
really isn't cheap. It costs trillions of dollars each year.
This is in medical and other goods and services. This
doesn't take into account the fact that the death rate of
American citizens here in the U.S. is greater than in Iraq.
Nothing is really being done, and I am afraid that we
shall be faced with more situations such as the one that
nearly occurred in Fort Dix.
It is hard to say how many soldiers might have gotten
killed. Lucky that a young man spotted what the copies
he was asked to make were about, and notified the
authorities.
My point in writing this rant is simply that Washington
is looking at the problem from a different prospective. If
we don't call, or fax our senators and tell them that


enough is enough, I'think that the good old U.S. of A. is in
deep trouble.
Anyone could do it

In regards to the rant about paramedics being second-
class citizens, if firefighters are getting a raise, then the
paramedics also should be getting a raise.
But as far as getting paid when you call in sick, you should-
n't.
You should use a vacation day instead.
Most people don't get paid when they call in sick. I don't
see why you should.
As far as being duel certified, you should be. It would save
the county a ton of money.
Like firefighters, you are getting paid while you sleep, and
only work three days a week.
Most of you have side jobs for extra money, because you
can only play so much ping-pong while you are at work.
As for sleepless nights, I think they are few and far between
in a county like Indian River.
You say not everyone could do your job. Well, with the
proper training, anyone could. The same goes for my job.
You could not do it, but with the proper training, you could.
So let's get with the duel certification, and let's save the
county a ton of money.

Daylight savings time

In a recent rant, the comment was made that the USA
is the only one to change the clocks.
That ranter may be right about his thinking, but the
USA is not the only major nation that changes its clocks.
Germany, and as far as I
know all of Europe, and maybe more, also changes its
clocks.
It is a big inconvenience. I sure wish all of them could
agree to change them, and stay with the summer time.

Wake up and be honest

I am a 40-something single lady and like to go out to
have a cocktail, take a cruise, attend club activities, etc.
Being single, I enjoy meeting men and having a new
conversation.
Occasionally, I will give my cell phone number to a
man whom I've practically interrogated and follow up
with a dinner date, outdoor activity or music concert.
Eventually, way too often, I discover I'm with or have
given my phone number to a married man!
One man's wife of 21 years found my number in his
trousers when she was doing the laundry.
She called me crying and pleading to know if I had
been intimate with her husband.
She said he'd passed a STD (sexually transmitted dis-
ease) to her in the past. They have three children at
home. She was despondent.
To men and women: When you are married and for
whatever reason feel the need to stray please think
twice or three times before you follow through with your
ill-fated intent.
If you're not totally happy in your marriage, it's just
plain cruel and a sin for you to dupe your wife, deceive
an innocent third person and top it off with unprotected
sex bringing the (result) of your dirty deeds home to your
marital partner.
What are you thinking?
This applies to women too. I realize that men aren't the
only gender who will deceive.


If there is a God, and I believe there is, the day will
come that you'll be required to answer for such behavior.
So get honest now, because your day of reckoning may
be today.
Editor's note: Your rant caused quite the sensation in
the office. We are wondering: How will this God you
speak of look at your relations with this married man.
Hint: Check the second-to-last finger on the left hand. If
it has a band of any sort, probably a married guy.

What if they had Islamic channels?

I was just going to respond to the people (who) replied
on the Spanish channels on a positive note.
I wonder if they would feel the same if it was an Islamic
channel?
As far as the Rants & Raves about the criminal activity
in the area in Satellite Beach, posting that in the newspa-
per: I think that's fine, but I do believe that anybody
(who) has been put in the newspaper and rehabilitates
himself and becomes a positive (individual) in the com-
munity should get just as much publicity or even more.

Stop paying cost of illegal immigration

I have previously been supportive of the GOP, but at
this time, I am not inclined to make any more donations
for the following reasons.
I can no longer afford to support the millions of illegal
immigrants in this country that are now benefiting from
our Medicaid and Welfare systems, while many of Ameri-
cans are now struggling to take care of themselves and
their families or seeking assistance that may not be avail-
able to them.
I resent the fact that they come to this country and
most refuse to learn English, but we have to pay extra on
everything to accommodate them, by having it written in
Spanish or other languages, so they can get along in the
USA.
If they can't, or refuse to read, write or speak English
outside their homes, perhaps they should go back home.
They are in America.
*Why are we allowing their children born here to auto-
matically become citizens? This gives them the opportu-
nity to collect more benefits at my expense.
I pay higher taxes, etc. to pay for public defenders,
jails, food, clothes, medical and educations, etc., for the
criminals. Why? Many of you are too young to remember
the Depression years when we had CCC and WPA Camps
so they could work to eat. This way the criminals who
commit crimes because they are bored, not ones com-
mitting heinous crimes, could go to work andstay off the
welfare rolls. Keep them busy.
I had foreign-born parents and grandparents who were
happy to come here, learned to speak English and
worked, depending on no one to help them out.
We spoke three languages at home, but only English
outside. What's so bad about that?
\Why do these immigrants who come here want to
change my way of life?
Please stop and think. Let's get American back. That is
what the vets are fighting for.
Editor's note: The 14th Amendment to the U.S. Consti-
tution states, "All persons born or naturalized in the
United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are
citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they
reside."

City polishes image to

lure upscale tourists


BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter


VERO BEACH On
Ocean Drive, workers are
hammering together the
final stage of the Vero
Beach Hotel & Club, 33
new rooms for the kind of
moneyed visitors that
local tourism officials
want to attract.
The resort, and other
luxury hotels set to open
in coming months, is
earning this seaside city
national attention even as
overall Florida tourism
holds flat and other desti-
nations pay more to
attract visitors in droves.
Vero Beach, long a win-
ter playground for wealthy
northerners and flocks of
"snowbirds," is working to
promote the summer and
fall months when local
tourism typically reaches
its lull.
Lori Burns, tourism
director for the Indian
River County Chamber of
Commerce, said her
efforts have been success-
ful in attracting in-state
and regional tourists dur-
ing these typically slow
months.
To promote the area, Ms.
Burns uses revenue from
hotel taxes for ads in
Coastal Living, Redbook
and other national maga-
zines, as well as Florida
travel guides.
This year, her budget is
about $433;000, which she
will use to draw visitors to
both Vero Beach and the
Sebastian area.
Though Ms. Burns touts
attractions such as the
Environmental Learning
Center in Wabasso and the
Vero Beach Museum of
Art, one feature is
immensely powerful in


luring tourists: "We have a
pretty big bathtub out
there to share with them,"
she said.
Earlier this year, her
efforts received a boost
from MSNBC, which ran a
segment about high-
money visitors flowing
north from South Florida
to Vero Beach.
"South Florida is starting
to look at Vero as their
Hamptons," Rip Pratt, a
Vero Beach Realtor, told
MSNBC. "It's two-and-a-
half hours up the road, but
it's a world apart, the same
for the relationship
between Manhattan and
the Hamptons them-
selves."
Along with the Vero
Beach Hotel & Club, pop
star Gloria Estefan and her
husband, Emilio who
own an oceanfront home
in northern Indian River
County are developing
a 98-room Ocean Drive
hotel that will open next
year.
And the Holiday Inn
Oceanside, a venerable
beachfront landmark, was
sold to a Delray Beach
developer for $10.3 million
in March.
"What you're seeing in
Vero Beach is almost
where Florida started in
tourism," said Heather
Gibson, a University of
Florida professor who
studies tourism trends.
She pointed to the dif-
ferences between Vero
Beach and other Florida
destinations: Unlike
Orlando, which caters to
families with its theme
parks and tacky souvenir
shops, Vero Beach contin-
ues to draw affluent north-
erners just as the state
did in the early 1900s.
But through February,

ers and government officials on May 16 as part of Nation-
al Tourism Week.


the number of Florida visi-
tors was down about 8
percent from 2006, Ms.
Burns said.
Tourism is a powerful
engine for the state econo-
my, and tourism dollars,
which in 2006 accounted
for $3.7 billion of state
sales tax revenue, have
also kept Florida lawmak-
ers from levying a state
income tax.
"Florida tourist spend-
ing was flat in 2006
because tourists are elect-
ing to spend their time
and vacation money else-
where," said Bud Nocera,
president and CEO of Visit
Florida, the state's tourism
agency.
"Part of the reason is
that Florida's tourism mar-
keting budget is not keep-
ing pace with other states
and we're being out-pro-
moted," he continued.
Despite Florida's desti-


nation reputation, chal-
lenges abound. Last year,
the city of Las Vegas spent
$116.6 million on market-
ing. Florida spent about
$20 million in the same
period. This year, Visit
Florida asked the state for
an additional $33.4 million
for tourism promotion.
The Legislature offered
$8.7 million.
'Add to that the fact that
the profile of the typical
Florida tourist has
changed," Mr. Nocera said.
"There's a shift happening
in Florida tourist demo-
graphics. Baby boomers
are not as loyal as the
'greatest generation' was
in returning annually to
Florida with family. Statis-
tically, we're seeing
boomers visit about every
three years."

Physical education for

elementary students

required by state


BY MATT DONEGAN
Staff writer


INDIAN RIVER COUN-
TY Local school dis-
tricts are now working to
figure out how to accom-
modate more physical
education at the elemen-
tary level following pas-
sage of new legislation
last week.
Aimed at reducing
within the next 10 years
the number of Floridians
who suffer from chronic
diseases resulting from
obesity, the bill mandates
students in kindergarten
through fifth-grade get at
least 150 minutes of
physical education per
week, or a half hour a day.
This is about an hour
more per week than what
most area schools cur-
rently provide.
Actual physical activity
affecting strength, agility,
flexibility, movement and
stamina is only one
aspect of the legislation.
Physical education also
includes health and well-
ness studies.
At the Indian River
County School District,
Sue Curtis, executive
director of elementary
education, said last week
that she supported more
physical education time,
but said administrators
had not yet figured out
how to integrate it into
the curriculum. Teachers
already spend large
chunks of the day focus-
ing on math and reading,
she said.
"How we fit all of this
into a school day will be a
challenge," Ms. Curtis
said.
Martin County Public


School officials are
researching ways to meet
the guidelines of the bill,
which district spokes-
woman Cathy Brennan
said shouldn't drastically
impact student sched-
ules.
"I don't see any major
structural changes in the
future," she said, adding
that the district should be
able to comply with the
new law without facing
great obstacles.
Along with cross-cur-
ricular studies that would
bring nutrition and
health instruction into
other subject areas, Mar-
tin County is also consid-
ering making recess more
structured so it will count
toward the 2 1/2 hours of
phys ed required per
week, Ms. Brennan said.
Elaine Harmon, the
physical education leader
for the St. Lucie County
School District, has
mixed feelings about the
bill.
"I think that everyone
in America needs more
activity time, especially
our children with the
obesity issue," she said.
"But I wish they had put
some money behind the
bill. The schools are going
to need money to hire
more teachers."
Ms. Harmon, a K-5
phys ed teacher at West
Gate K-8 School in Port
St. Lucie and sixth-
through eighth-grade
volleyball and soccer
coach, has been a P.E.
teacher for 23 years.
She said she,sees more
obese children in the
schools now than she did

Hurricane season prompts organizations to gear up education and preparation


BY MICHELLE GENTLE
StaffWriter
Hurricane season offi-
cially starts June 1 and
organizations such as The
American Red Cross are
gearing up with hurricane
fairs, expos and other


events geared to educating
the public on the newest
technologies and prepara-
tion tools.
The American Red Cross
will be hosting its 13th
Annual American Red
Cross/Expert Shutter Hur-
ricane Fair on June 2 and 3


at the Treasure Coast
Square Mall in Jensen
Beach.
The fair is designed to
highlight new technolo-
gies, provide information
on this year's hurricane
season and offer prepared-
ness information on every-


thing from shelters to
shutters.
"These types of events
offer a great opportunity
for people to get important
safety information for the
upcoming hurricane sea-
son," said Mike Lyons,
meteorologist, for televi-


sion station WPBF 25 in
Palm Beach. "People walk
away with the knowledge
of what to do before, dur-
ing and after a hurricane
and how to best prepare."
The Hurricane Fair is

Weldon
From page Al


"Our space program was
recently given a major
budget blow by Democrats
who see it as a piggy bank
for their new spending pri-
orities, such as foreign aid
and [Department of Hous-
ing and Urban Develop-
ment] housing," Mr. Wel-
don said. "Space and space
exploration is not only
important to our area, it is
important for our nation."
District 15, which Mr.
Weldon has represented
since 1995, includes parts
of Brevard, Osceola and
Polk counties, as well as
Indian River County.
In Brevard County, home
of Kennedy Space Center,
NASA and its related con-
tractors are major employ-
ers.
"Amazingly, Democrats
in other space districts,
such as the Johnson Space
Center area, voted for this
budget cut because Demo-
crat party pressure insisted
on uniformity," Mr. Wel-
don said. "We cannot have
the Space Coast represent-
ed by another NASA cut-
ter."
So far, his only chal-
lenger in the race is Demo-
crat Paul Rancatore, 45, a
Vero Beach airline pilot


and officer in the Air Force
Reserve.
"I don't know how he can
say that Democrats are
hurting the space indus-
try," Mr. Rancatore said.
"He's been on the Appro-
priations Committee for 12
years, so if the space
industry is being hurt, it
must be because of a lack
of his attention and leader-
ship."
Mr. Weldon, who has
served in Congress since
1995, also targeted con-
gressional Democrats'
"unrestrained tax and
spend attitude" in his cam-
paign announcement.
"Under the guise of 'pay
as you go,' Democrats have
already spent billions
more than the previous
budget proposed by
Republicans," Mr. Weldon
said. "And they raised taxes
to do it. Every constituent I
have talked with says they
are fed up with tax increas-
es. More and more people
in District 15 are telling me
their taxes are too high."
Mr. Weldon, 53, an Army
veteran and physician, was
first elected during the
1994 Republican revolu-.
tion, when the party cap-
tured both houses of Con-


gress.
In the House, he has
been a reliably conserva-
tive vote, casting ballots
against the 2001 No Child
Left Behind education
overhaul and, in late 2002,
to authorize the use of
force against Iraq.
Since the U.S. invasion
in 2003, sectarian and eth-
nic violence has consumed
Iraq.
In his campaign
announcement, Mr. Wel-
don said he wants to see a
successful solution to the
conflict.
"It is too early to say if
the surge will succeed, but
the early results are show-
ing promise and certainly
the majority of Iraqi peo-
ple want to succeed," he
said, referring to President
Bush's decision to send an
additional 20,000 troops to
Iraq earlier this year.
"What is very clear is
that the path Democrats
want to take us down will
assure failure," Mr. Weldon
said. "We cannot win the
war against violent Islamic
extremism if we take the
Democrat approach."
His opponent has said
that other Middle Eastern
nations should take on a


larger role in stabilizing
Iraq, and that U.S. troops
should be repositioned
inside the country.
"I think that [Mr. Wel-
don's] lack of understand-
ing of the region, and the
history and the dynamic,
has led us to a failed poli-
cy," Mr. Rancatore said.
Last fall, when Democ-
rats seized control of both
the House and Senate for


the first time in 12 years,
Mr. Weldon was re-elected
with 56 percent of the
vote.
His opponent in that
race was Bob Bowman of
Melbourne, an outspoken
opponent of the Iraq war
who said U.S. troops
should be withdrawn from
the country and replaced
by United Nations peace-
keepers.


Mr. Weldon had about
$350,000 in his campaign
chest at the end of April,
according to campaign
finance reports.
"I will be placing my
name into candidacy for
the 15th congressional
seat in Florida," Mr. Wel-
don said, "and I do it with
a sense of obligation and
commitment to these
issues."

BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
VERO BEACH The
power of the sun, abun-
dant in Florida, the Sun-
shine State, can be cap-
tured with the help of
Climatic Solar in Vero
Beach.
Climatic Solar, a compa-
ny with almost three
decades of experience in
solar technology, offers
clean, energy-efficient
ways to heat water and
generate electricity.
Sales manager Brett
Donnelly tells how his
stepfather, John Drndack,
founded the company in
Southampton, N.Y., then
brought it to Vero Beach in
1979.
Mr. Drndack, an aero-
nautical engineer for
Grumman Aircraft, was
tired of working behind a
desk, so he switched
career paths and became
a physics teacher at
Southampton High
School. When he taught a
popular elective course
that detailed solar energy,
a spark was lit.
Mr. Drndack is now the
company's president and
owner.
Today, Climatic Solar
provides solar heating for
swimming pools and
water heaters, as well as
photovoltaic cells, sys-
tems that can convert the


power of the sun into elec-
tric energy for homes.
"Not only is it green, it's
cool," Mr. Donnelly said.
Climatic Solar has
installed more than 9,000
systems across the Trea-
sure Coast and in Brevard
County, most of them sys-
tems to warm up pools or
cut energy costs by har-
nessing the sun to heat
water. To date, that totals
to more than $7 million
worth of solar equipment
that Climatic Solar has
installed.
Most of these systems
can be installed in a single
day, Mr. Donnelly said.
Plus, the systems are
phenomenally efficient:
up to 97 percent of light
energy can be converted
into heat energy.
The systems are
durable, too: Most of them
are expected to last at
least 25 years.
For the pool heating sys-
tems, water is pumped to
the roof of the home
where the water is
warmed by the sunshine
and then circulated back
into the pool. It requires
no extra electricity do this.
"On average, what we
see is 10 months per year"
for swimming, Mr. Don-
nelly said. "We more than
double your swim time."
Climatic Solar stands
apart from its competi-
tors, Mr. Donnelly said,

because of the company's
strong engineering back-
ground. In fact, the com-
pany even services many
of the solar systems that
competing businesses
have installed. It has out-
lasted more than 15 com-
petitors.
Yet many customers
worry that' the solar sys-
tems could be damaged
during severe tropical
weather.
But the results of past
storms show that Climatic
Solar systems are tough:
During the twin 2004 hur-
ricanes and Hurricane
Wilma in 2005, only 8 per-
cent of all Climatic Solar
systems installed in
homes were damaged, Mr.
Donnelly said.
Attention in the clean,
environmentally friendly
technology is increasing,
in part as the debate
about global warming
heats up and fuel costs
continue to rise.
And people want to hear
about the money-saving
potential of the technolo-
gy, Mr. Donnelly said.
Climatic Solar is located
at 650 Second Lane in Vero
Beach. It can be reached at
(772) 567-3104. For more

Tourism
From page A7
of National Tourism Week,
drawing an audience to
the Caribbean Court
Hotel, one of the city's
new boutique spots.
"It rivals anything on
South Beach that I've
seen," Ms. Burns said.
Additionally, Florida
cities often compete for
the same types of visitors.
South Florida destina-


tions like Miami, Fort
Lauderdale and West Palm
Beach attract high-end
clientele, Ms. Gibson said.
"Tourism is all about
Disney World or all about
the beach, but we have a
whole host of other
things," she added.
Vero Beach could appeal
to the same clients by
emphasizing its laidback
atmosphere and distance
from the hustle of South
Florida, said Melissa Dal-
las, director of the hospi-


tality and tourism man-
agement program at Flori-
da Atlantic University.
"It's different from Palm
Beach, very different, but
they're attracting the same
type of person," she said.
Visit Florida also tracks
tourists who live here and
travel to other locations in
the Sunshine State. Last
year, nearly 17 percent of
in-state households took a
Florida getaway, accord-
ing to Visit Florida statis-
tics.


Visitors within a few
hours' drive of Vero Beach
often swing by to visit
local attractions, but Ms.
Burns added that her
focus was on luring visi-
tors who would stay sever-
al days and generate hotel
taxes.
"It's not as glitzy as the
Hamptons, but the ambi-
ence and laidback atmos-
phere really appeal to baby
boomers," she said.

From page A7


two. decades ago.
"The world is a more
dangerous place, and kids
don't play outside as much
as they used to," Ms. Har-
mon said. "Parents are
working more. That gives
kids less time for physical
activity."
The result, she said, has
been an influx of juvenile
diabetes and overweight
youth.
She tells students being
out of shape is like having
the flu.
"You feel weak and
tired," she said. "Your


whole body functions bet-
ter when you're in better
shape. Strong mind, strong
body."
In addition to the
increased physical educa-
tion during school hours,
Ms. Harmon said West
Gate is trying to hold more
extracurricular activities
beginning next year, some
of which will even include
parents.
"The national recom-
mendation is for at least 20

Local artist receives Florida

Senate medallion of excellence


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS
VERO BEACH Before
the Florida Senate ended
its regular session, Senate
president, Ken Pruitt, took
time from his schedule to
award Vero Beach artist,
Richard Kelly, the Florida
Senate medallion of excel-
lence for his outstanding
Florida cultural and artis-
tic contributions to the


State of Florida.
Mr. Kelly, who studied
under Florida artist, A. E.
Backus, has painted oil on
canvas landscapes for the
last 20 years.
He has recently been
working on paintings,
which will be displayed in
a book called "Treasured
Waters the Indian River
Lagoon."
"All of my paintings for


the book show the unique
habitats and wildlife of the
Indian River Lagoon.
I am honored that the
president of the Florida
Senate feels that my work
contributes to an under-
standing of, not only art,
but also of the importance
of Florida's Indian River
Lagoon, Mr. Kelly said.

the dedication of a peace
pole.
The Peace Pole project
was started by the World
Peace Society, a nonprofit,
member supported, non-
sectarian organization,
dedicated to uniting peo-
ple across the world
through the universal say-


ing, "May peace prevail on
earth."
The Peace Pole at the
Unitarian Universalist Fel-
lowship was given by the
Rev. Gail R. Geisenhainer
and Celeste DeRoche.
It has that saying
inscribed in eight lan-
guages, English, Seminole,
Hindi, Swahili, Arabic,
Hebrew, Spanish, and Chi-
nese, broadly representing
the continents of the earth,
and the native people of
Florida.
To date, more than
200,000 Peace Poles have
been dedicated in over 190
countries around the
world.
They can be found in
town squares, city halls,
schools, places of worship,
parks, and gardens, any
place where the spirit of
peace is embraced by peo-
ple of good will.
There are Peace Poles in
a number of Florida towns,
including Orlando, Mel-
bourne, Stuart, Jack-
sonville, Daytona Beach,
Pensacola and Miami.
They are also found at
the North Pole, the Pyra-
mids, the Hiroshima
Atomic Bomb Dome and
at The Hague, Nether-
lands, among other sites.

There are ways to deal with drought in yard


I have several of these
beauties scattered around
the garden and they really
offer a great color spectrum.
By planting these and
other butterfly friendly
plants, you can add the
beautiful color of these
delicate creatures to your
yard.


Garden Nook

with Joe Zelenak


s the drought index
climbs, it gets harder
.J land harder to
maintain a healthy lawn
and keep all the plants at
their best.
With the distinct possibil-
ity of a the draught lasting
for a couple of years, we
may need to make some
adjustments in the way we
plan out a landscape.

SDecrease the grass
SMake use of garden
stones and create cozy
pathways throughout the
yard. The area taken up by
the pathways will mean less
lawn needs to be watered
and taken care of.
If you go a step further
and build a patio area out
of stepping stones or some
other material, this will not
only add functionality to
your yard, but it also will
decrease the area of lawn
you have to water and
nurture.
You can use your new
patio areas for a barbecue,
entertaining or maybe just
an area to place your dream
patio set.
With today's choices, you
can create a living room-
effect outdoors and save
water all the same time.
Thirst-free planting
Here is another idea that
will conserve water.
In some of your remain-
ing lawn areas, create
islands of native Florida
plants that require little
water.
These beds can be new or
additions to existing beds.
Using the proper selec-
tion of plants, you can
substantially reduce your
watering needs.
Lawns will generally need
more water then using the
proper selection of plants
to add to your island.
Next week I will cover
some plants that are great
for dry conditions.

Water wisely
SYour method of watering
can impact how much
water you are using.
For example, always
water your shrubs and
flowers by hand.
Use ah automatic shut-off
nozzle and water each
plant individually.
Not only is this more
efficient, but it also does a

better job then relying on
sprinklers, where much of
the water is diverted
because of the plant's
foliage.
Hand watering allows you
to get the water where it is
needed without waste.

And now, butterflies
I have a lot of people ask
about plants that are good
for attracting butterflies.
Milkweed is one such
plant and in addition to
attracting butterflies, it is
also very colorful.
Milkweed is noted for its
ability to attract the
Monarch butterfly.
I have planted several in
my yard and they will add a
very exotic charm to your
yard.
These delicate plants
grow from 2- to 5-feet high
and they grow well in any
kind of soil. They also
require a minimal amount
of water, but I find I need to
water mine about every
other day to prevent the
"droopy" look they some-
times get.
The plants also have large "
seedpods that if left on the
plant will spread the plant
to other areas of the garden.
If you do not want the
plant to spread, cut off the
pods before they dry and
open.
The silk in the seedpods
was actually used during
World War II as filler for life
jackets.
That's a lot of milkweed!
Pentas is another com-
mon plant that is colorful
and attractive to butterflies.
They are available at
almost all local garden
centers and do very well in
both sun and partial shade.
They do like soil that
retains moisture and they
can be propagated from
cuttings during the spring.
They also make great
container plants

Butterflies Are Cool!!

How to create a
successful butterfly garden.
Step 1. Head down to
Horizon Garden Center
Step 2. Plant both nectar and
host plants. Nectar plants provide
food for the adult butterflies,
and host plants provide food for
the caterpillars.


Step 3. For the best results, plant your
butterfly garden in full sun and plant the taller
plants behind the shorter ones--so you will be able
to see all the flowers and butterflies that will appear
in your garden.
Step 4. Sit back and enjoy!!!

Stay centered and focused on
your top' priorities and contin-
ue to refine and purify your

Joy of achievement is the fuel.
for the fire in your soul. Noth-

give joy to yourself and those
in your circle. When your
large heart is set in motion,
great achievement is possi-


ble. It's on and up from here.
Your life exemplifies the high-

Pisces-Feb. 19-March 20
A strong, active mind is good,
but best results come when
you follow your heart. You
have a large one. Refuse to
let the stresses of life wear
you down. Before this hap-
pens, step back, take a deep
breath, regroup and get a
second wind. Then ask the
universe to guide you. The
good news is, it will.

tal reference.
"Their music is a place
that I'm always trying to
reach. How they were able
to make a crowd lose con-
trol over that one perfectly
placed note is pure heart
and soul. I have to credit
my biggest influence to Jimi
Hendrix, though," Mr. Ste-
fan said. "He was amazing.
As far as I'm concerned, if
you play modern electric
guitar of any style, he is your
biggest influence. His abili-
ties as a songwriter, poet,
and guitar player far exceed
anyone to date; he trans-
formed music forever. The
controlled insanity of his
guitar playing has always
been mystifying to me."
That same sense of awe
and destiny came to light
again as Mr. Stefan's career
got a heady start. He spent
three years playing guitar
on his own, while attending
college in Asheville, N.C.
Offered an opportunity to
participate in an open jam
session, he was surprised to
find that it was being hosted
by long-time jazz aficiona-
do and blues historian
Chuck Beattie.
"It turned out that the guy
hosting it, Chuck "Dr.
Blues" Beattie, was a big
deal in the local blues
scene. After that night, I was
hooked on playing with a
band and creating music.
Chuck really took me under
U l -,,4,. "


his wing. I worked with him
for about year and he gave
me a good place to get start-
ed in music. I've just been
hustling ever since," he
said.
After relocating to Florida,
Mr. Stefan put together The
Teague Stefan Band, a clas-
sic blues band that played
standard covers with the
occasional original song
added to the list.
"We've grown a lot since
then," Mr. Stefan added.
"I've really been able to
establish a style of my own.
I've managed to keep the
blues label and still inject a
lot of influence from some
of my other favorite styles of
music, such as soul and
classic rock. I feel my song
writing has come a long way
as well. Most of my song
lyrics come from my life,
from things that have hap-
pened around me or to me.
Now our crowds come out
to hear the original songs
that I play, as opposed to
coming out to hear Jimi's
Voodoo Chile ... again."
During performances, the
band members rotate, but
Mr. Stefan recently collabo-
rated with two other band
members on their first
album, "Hard Eight".
The album has received
rave reviews and one of the
songs' was even picked up
by the radio station 105.1
FM. Scott McKenzie Erica


Lee, hosts of the station's
morning show, now use the
song, "Dance With Me" in
their opening.
"For the recording of the
album," Mr. Stefan said,
"we had Mike Burney on
bass and Art McConnell
on drums. We recorded all
11 songs in two days. It
was absolutely grueling,
but we got it done and
then took another two
days to mix the album.
The album turned out to
be a perfect mix of rock
and blues, and it has got-
ten quite a bit of national
radio airplay on blues pro-
grams and public radio. It
actually charted on the
independent blues charts
as high as No. 31."
As The Teague Stefan
Band continues to gain
popularity, it seems that
the sky is indeed the limit
for this talented young
man. With such strong
potential ready to swing
him onto the national
stage, residents of Vero
Beach won't want to miss
their chance to hear The
Teague Stefan Band per-
forming live on May 25 at
9:30 p.m. at Undertow.
Undertow is located at
1931 Old Dixie Highway,
Vero Beach, and admis-
sion is free.

The Israel Scouts Friendship Caravan, a group of talented Israeli boys and girls, will perform at Temple Beth Shalom in
Vero Beach at 7 p.m. on June 17.

Youth ambassadors bring

message of brotherhood, tolerance


BY TAMARA DOURNEY
Entertainment writer
Amid all the violence in the
Middle East, the Israeli
Scouts is working to pro-
mote peace and under-
standing.
The scouts will be per-
forming songs and convey-
ing a message when they
visitVero Beach next month.
Founded in 1919, the
Israeli Scouts operates on
several unique levels. Physi-
cally and developmentally
challenged youth are active-
ly incorporated into its
activities and the movement
has both religious and secu-
lar members.
SDuring their time with the
Israeli Scouts, the young-
sters have the chance to par-
ticipate in joint activities
aimed at building bridges of
understanding. That desire
for unity despite differences
extends to the United States
as well.
Offering weekly activities,
branch based in the United
States works with Hebrew-
speaking youth, offering
them activities similar to
those taking place in Israel.
In addition to the weekly
activities, students are given
a chance to return to their
families' homeland.
The U.S.-based organization
Friends of the Israeli Scouts,
incorporated in 1995, brings
yet another aspect to the
mix. Recognizing the
importance of the work
being done by the scouts,
Friends of the Israeli Scouts
hopes to promote brother-
hood, tolerance and respect
among people of all faiths.
Through a special pro-
gram called the Friendship
Caravan, students from the
Israeli Scouts come to the
United States and travel the
country as ambassadors for
Israel.
The students, who per-
form songs in Hebrew, Eng-
lish and Yiddish, can be
found sharing their message
of tolerance and hope at


camps, public gatherings,
U.S. Naval bases, schools,
community centers, hospi-
tals and nursing homes
throughout the country.
Local liaison Mindy
Lessem Pollack had the
opportunity to see the
scouts perform during a
summer camp she attended
and thought thatVero Beach
would be a wonderful addi-
tion to their tour.
"The Israel Scouts were
hosted by a camp I attend-
ed, so I was familiar with
them and the impact of their
moving performances," Ms.
Pollack explained. "When I
relocated to the Vero Beach
area, I saw that there was a
lack of cultural exchange;
residents who wanted to
learn about the culture and
history of Israel would have
to travel out of the area to do
so. That is the reason I con-
tacted the NewYork office of


the Friends of the Israeli shown by the sc
Scouts and offered to be participate. Eacl
their liaison for the Treasure of the Israel Scou
Coast." ship Caravan

Caravan is the dedication ) See SCOUTS, B7

amazing to see such a
strong connection after
only a one night stay in the
home. The visits by the
Scouts have engendered
lasting friendships with the
families they stay with."
The interaction with the
Scouts is often eye-opening
for local students in the
same age group. Members
of the Caravan spend time
interacting with the audi-
ence, talking about life in
Israel, their fears and
hopes. While the partici-
pants of the Caravan
explain that they are just
"average teenagers", the
realization that the scouts
will be preparing to enter
the military at a time when
most American teenagers
are studying for their driv-
ers license can be startling.
"The students who are
performing in our area are
all 11th graders. When they
return home, they will fin-
ish their last year of
schooling and then they
will all enter the military.
Instead of being seen as a


burden, it is viewed as a
point of pride to have
served their country," Ms.
Pollack said.
The public is invited to
attend the upcoming per-
formance of the Israel
Scouts Friendship Cara-
van. Organizers hope that
the community, which has
been so supportive in the
past, will continue to show
their appreciation for the
efforts of the scouts.
"I love watching the
audience'enjoy the festivi-
ties," Ms. Pollack said. "It
makes me feel good to see
people making the cultur-
al connections and I love
the enthusiasm of both
the Scouts and the com-
munity."
Residents will have their
chance to 'look past the
headlines' at 7 p.m. on
June 17, when the Caravan
will perform at Temple
Beth Shalom, 365 43rd
Ave., Vero Beach. Tickets
are available for $8 in the
temple office or by calling

Living in a watershed


Sick. What is a
watershed? If you
answered an area
of 1 that drains water,
sediment, and dissolved
material into a common
body of water, then pat
yourself on the back.
But there is more to a
watershed than just a
definition. Watersheds
come in all shapes and
sizes and are not bound
by county borders. So, you
are always part of a
watershed.


Although the definition
of a watershed may be
simple, it is made up of
many different compo-
nents.
These components
include lakes, rivers,
streams, wetlands,
lagoons, groundwater,
and the surrounding
lands from which the
water drains.
As the water drains off
the land, some of it soaks
into the ground, replen-
ishing the groundwater.
The remaining amount
flows over the surface and
finds its way to the
nearest water body, like a
stream or pond. This
stream can then carry the
water to a river, which
eventually flows into the
ocean.
In addition to these
natural areas, the water-
sheds we live in also
include man-made
waterways called canals.
Their major function is to
drain water, which frees
up thousands of acres of

provide flood control,

Florida would not be able

body, such as the Indian
River Lagoon.
As our watersheds
include more urban and
suburban areas, water
quality can be negatively
impacted by non-point
source pollution.
As water flows over
parking lots, construction
sites, lawns, and agricul-
tural areas, pollutants
such as fertilizers, pesti-
cides, and soil are picked
up. Unlike the water we
use in our homes, this
water is untreated.
When these pollutants
reach a water body, our
marine resources are
affected. Extra soil and
unwanted sediment
muddy the water and clog
fish gills.
It also decreases the
amount of light reaching
sea grass beds and smoth-
ers other organisms that
live on the bottom. Excess
nutrients from fertilizers
cause algal blooms, which
then block light to sea
grass beds, and decrease
the amount of dissolved
oxygen available to fish.
Toxins, such as pesticides
and other chemicals
found in the storm water
runoff, can result in fish
kills and poison aquatic
plants, which can endan-
ger the health of Florida's
water resources.
We all need to be stew-
ards of the watershed
because whatever we do
to our land affects the
water that passes through
it. Here are some simple
measures that you can do
to help make the water
leaving your area of the
watershed cleaner.
*Do not dump trash in
the canals..
*Pick up after your dog.
*Collect and use rainwa-
ter to irrigate plants.

Maple syrup is healthier than corn


syrup, brings back memories


Hello, smart shop-
pers. Hope you had
a good week.
When a reader ques-
tioned why jarred walnuts
in syrup contained two
kinds of corn syrup it
peaked my interest.
Corn syrup, which is
made from corn is a
simple sugar.
High fructose corn syrup
is corn syrup that has been
chemically altered and is
believed to be a contribut-
ing factor in obesity.
The walnuts or pecans in
syrup contained both and
were priced at more than
$2 for a 5-ounces jar -
that's smaller than a juice
glass.
When I requested a
recipe in a column, a
reader wrote that accord-
ing to an ice cream chain
her daughter worked for,
walnuts were added to
maple syrup.
My question was, "What
makes maple syrup
healthier? It's sweet so it
must be bad."
Research blew me away
as I'm sure it will you.
How silly to think that
something God made, if
used properly, could be
bad. Pure maple syrup
contains potassium,
calcium, iron, magnesium,
thiamin, and B vitamins,
has the same amount of
calories as white sugar and
less than corn syrup.
I decided to put together
a recipe to pass on to you.
I remember a class trip I
took with my two young
sons to a maple sugar farm
in New Hampshire.
It was early spring and
the ground was still frozen
as we gingerly walked over
snow patches and frozen
roots. Taps (that held a
bucket) were nailed into
the tree bark and a clear
liquid dripped steadily
into the buckets.
The air was thick with
the smell of maple.
A long building housed a
trough of boiling sap.


As the water slowly
evaporated the sweet mist
covered us completely, we
were either in heaven or
nauseated; I was the
former and kissing my.kids
was sweeter than ever.
I purchased my favorite,
maple sugar candy. Now
you know what to send me
if you're so inclined.
Enjoy, see you next week.

WALNUT SAUCE
1/2 cup broken walnuts
or pecans
1 tablespoon butter or
butter substitute
1 cup real maple syrup
Vanilla ice cream or
frozen yogurt, preferably
low-fat
In a small skillet, saut6
nuts in butter until golden.
Add syrup, bring to boil.
Cook for 1 minute.
Remove from heat for a
few minutes, bring to a
second boil and cook for
an additional minute.
Serve warm over ice
cream.
Will keep in refrigerator
for weeks.

BARBECUED SPARE
RIBS
Serves four
2 racks pork ribs
Garlic powder
Salt and pepper
Hickory chips, optional
Barbecue sauce
Trim as much fat as
possible from ribs.
Use a large baking pan
that will hold racks. Cake
cooling racks are fine.
Place a few hickory chips
in the pan. Pour a mixture
of 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
mixed with 1 cup water
over chips.
Place racks on top.
Sprinkle ribs with
seasonings. Place on racks
and cover with foil.
Bake in a low (300 degree
E) oven for about 2 hours

testing for doneness after
1-1/2 hours. They must be
fork tender.
Grill ribs until lightly
browned, then baste with
barbecue sauce and grill
until crisp and
caramelized.
If you add the barbecue
sauce before ribs are done
they will burn.

BUFFALO WINGS
(NIB)
This recipe is as close as
possible to the original
recipe from the Italian
restaurant in Buffalo, N.Y.,
where it was created.
12 chicken wings,
disjointed or left whole
Canola oil for deep
frying, heated to 375
degrees E
Fry wings until crisp and
done in hot oil 6 at a time
so as not to cool the oil
down.
Drain well on paper
towels.

SAUCE
4 tablespoons butter,
melted
1 bottle Frank's hot
sauce, (any hot sauce will
do)
1 tablespoon white
vinegar
Start with 2 tablespoons
hot sauce. Add more as
needed.


Mix all together. Pour
over wings; serve with
celery sticks and bleu
cheese dressing.

KIM'S BUFFALO
WINGS
(NIB)
Low-fat
Follow original recipe
but instead of frying the
wings, broil them until
they are crisp. Use a butter
substitute for the butter in
the sauce.
Smart Shopping, Money-
saving tip: Pork spare ribs
are cheaper and meatier
than baby back ribs. You do
know that baby back and
back ribs are the same and
spare ribs and side ribs are
the same? There are no baby
pigs here, just a little poetic
license by the food industry.

takes 40 gallons ofmaple sap
to make 1 gallon ofsyrup!

Are you ready for some (spring) football?


Vero Beach hits
the practice field

BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer


VERO BEACH Spring.
It's traditionally a time
when it's out with the old
and in with the new. An
instance for new beginnings
and fresh starts.
For Indians' head football
coach Gary Coggin it's an
occasion to do a little "spring
cleaning" of his own.
To toss out the recollec-
tions of a 1-5 start to the
2006 season while dusting
off the memories of a strong
finish where Vero won three
out of its last four games
including a miraculous 45-
42 win in quadruple over-
time over Palm Beach Lakes.
"The energy level is pretty
good right now," Coggin
said. "They (the team) liked
the taste of that success.
"If they work hard it has a

good opportunity to contin-
ue. That kind of stuff
becomes contagious."
The Indians enter this
spring in slightly better
shape than they did heading
into last year's campaign.
Coggin took over last sea-
son when the legendary Billy
Livings resigned after 26
years with the school.
Adding to Coggin's daunting
task was having to replace
key components of his
offense in quarterback Alex


Cobb and running back A.J.
Ausby.
The season began promis-
ing eriough as the Indians
downed local rival Fort
Pierce Central at home 10-7.
Vero Beach then proceeded
to drop five straight, but
each were close, with the
Indians only losing by more
than five points once.
Vero Beach righted the
ship with an impressive 31-
17 win over Jupiter on Oct.
13. After losing to American


Heritiage the following
week, the stage was set for
adding to the glorious tradi-
tion of Indians' football.
Trailing 28-7 at the half to
Palm Beach Lakes, Vero
Beach reeled off 21 straight
points to tie the game at the
end of regulation. After the
Rams struck first in over-
time, Ronnie Weaver
answered with a two-yard
touchdown to send the
game deeper into the night.
The teams exchanged
touchdowns once again,
arid in the third overtime,
Vero Beach sensed victory
after blocking a Lakes' field
goal while having its sure-
footed kicker Max Feurer on
the sideline itching to come
out and win the game.
After calling a safe handoff
on first down, Coggin sent
out the junior to try and nail
down the 26-yard attempt.
However, the kick sailed

Vero foursome tosses aside its competition


BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
VERO BEACH Perhaps
inspired by Sir Isaac Newton
and the apple, Alan Parson's
Project touted the proper-
ties of gravity with their 1978
hit, "What goes up."
Though way before their
time, one wouldn't be sur-
prised to hear four wrestlers
offtheVero Beach girls' state
championship squad hum-
ming a few bars, as they
freestyled their way onto the
Florida National team
recently.
Assistant coach Todd
Fleetwood took four girls -
Janexis Rodriguez, Macey
Evans, Mercedes Mckenzie
and Brittany Fleetwood -
to the qualifying tourna-
ment with the hopes of plac-
ing first or second to secure
a spot on the prestigious
squad.
Mission accomplished.
"These girls are dedicated
and committed to becom-
ing the best they can be,"
Fleetwood said. "They're just
like the boys. They want to
win."
What makes the achieve-
ment even more astounding
was the fact that the girls
were competing in a style
they were relatively unfamil-
iar with.
"Freestyle is a more
aggressive style," Fleetwood
said. "There are a lot more
throws and a little more
action. The higher you
throw somebody the more
points you get."
"In high school or folk
style there are so many pre-
cautions. You can do just
about anything in freestyle.
Despite the short prepara-
tion time, the girls acclimat-
ed themselves rather quick-
ly.
"We went to a mini-camp
and trained for three days,"
Rodriguez said. 'We had
about 11 practices before
the tournament."
The junior, who placed
second in the 119-pound
division, was apprehensive
entering the tournament,
but was determined to give
it her best.
"I was really nervous,"
Rodriguez said. "It's a totally
different style. It's more
aggressive.
"I felt uncomfortable at


first, but I gave my 100 per-
cent. Afterwards, I felt really
good about it.
"I love freestyle now."
After a second-place finish
at the state tournament,
sophomore Mercedes
McKenzie looked to contin-
ue her winning ways. At 152
pounds, the 16-year-old
made it to the freestyle finals
where she took on two-time
defending state champion
Katie Crouch.
"I didn't have a lot of expe-
rience with it, but I got sec-
ond," McKenzie said. "At
first, I didn't like it. It's a lot of
hard work, but then you
realize what you can accom-
plish as a team and as an
individual."
McKenzie, Fleetwood's
stepdaughter, is enjoying
her second season as a
wrestler and wouldn't have it
any other way.
"My cousin, Brittany,
wanted to try out for the
team and didn't want to try
out alone," McKenzie said.
'After that, I just loved it.
"I don't know what I would
do if I wasn't wrestling. It's
my life now."
Brittany Fleetwood strug-
gled during her junior sea-
son, but turned it around to
garner a second-place finish
at the national team qualifi-
er at 165.
"The first girl (I wrestled) I
was kind of scared," Fleet-
wood said. "She had been
wrestling for four years. She
got first place.
"The last three matches
were pretty quick. I won all
three.
S"I wasn't very good (this
season). I was a little shaky. I
plan on working really hard
over the summer.
"My goal for my senior
season is I plan on being
undefeated. I definitelywant
to get No. 1 at state."
If Fleetwood accomplish-
es her goal, she will join
Macey Evans in that elite
position. After finishing sec-
ond in the state a year ago,
Evans had an outstanding
junior season that saw her
enter the 2007 tournament
undefeated at 13-0.
SCompeting at 132 pounds,
she not only finished in the
top spot at state, but also
earned her way onto the
Florida National team with a
first-place finish.

"It was intense," Evans
said. "I got slammed pretty
hard. The higher up the
more points you get.
"I got back up and pinned
every one of them."
The 17-year-old did so
with the style that has
allowed her to dominate for
most of the two years she's
been competing.
"I stayed folk style and still
won," Evans said. "It was all
legal to folk style.
"I thought it would be safe
doing what I'm used to. I
didn't know any (freestyle)
moves. We've been practic-
ing. I'll learn it."


The national tournament
will bring teams throughout
the United States to Fargo,
N.D. in July to determine
who is the best of the best.
The coach of the South
Florida foursome is confi-
dent his girls will help the
state squad be victorious.
"They are really dedicated
to still be wrestling," Fleet-
wood said. "Most girls don't
want to learn a new style.
"They want to get all the
experience they can.
"Each of them was wor-
ried went theywent. I could-
n't ask for too much more
than what they did."

Spring
From page B10
wide left and the score
remained knotted at 42.
In the fourth overtime,
Vero Beach got the ball first
and after being stopped for
no gain on three consecutive
runs, Feurer was called upon
once again. This time, his
kick was perfect and the
Indians led by three.
After the Rams' Jabari Byrd
ran for five yards on first
down, Vero's defense like


it had done all season -
came up big, forcing a fum-
ble to give Vero Beach not
only the biggest comeback
in the program's 80-year his-
tory but a ticket to the play-
offs.
The Indians followed that
win up with another one, a
convincing 34-19 defeat of
John I. Leonard, but fell in
the Region 2-6A quarterfinal
to Royal Palm Beach. Like he
had done all season, Weaver
led the way with 94 hard-
fought yards.
Unfortunately for the Indi-
ans, Weaver won't be back,
taking his toughness and
tenacity to the University of
Central Florida, where he
will try to earn a walk-on
role.
"It will take someone very
special to fill in for him,"
Coggin said. "It may take
three or four players."
Weaver's brother, Corbin,
is at the head of the list.
"He is our most experi-
enced back," Coggin said. "I
should have used him more
last year. He can run pretty
good.
"Ben Harrison also played
some.
"Those two backs are
coming into camp way
ahead of everybody else. I'd
like to find two, three or four
more to go with them to
keep them fresh."
While Coggin is unsure of
how his backfield will settle
out, he is confident of who'll
be behind center Jimmy
Henry. The soon-to-be sen-
ior played admirably last
season after taking over for
the injured Ryan Regan.
"You always want to have
adequate backups," Coggin
said. "I tell them (the play-
ers) you're a turned ankle
away from being a starter.
"When their number is
called and they can step
right in and not miss a beat
- you have a pretty good

questions to be answered,
Coggin is certain everything
will be resolved as the sea-
son approaches.
"You want to get a bunch
of kids who want to play and
are willing to sacrifice their
time," Coggin said. "Football
is a learned skill, not a natu-
ral skill.
"We're never going to be
the biggest and the
strongest and the fastest. We
rely on heart and depend-
ability.
"We also have another
tremendously hard sched-
ule. A majority of those
schools put a dot or star by
our name. If they have suc-
cess against Vero, it sets the
tone for their year.
"The schools around us
know our reputation real
well. They're going to bring
their best and we have to
answer that."

GPS systems come in handy on golf courses


H ow often have you
watched profession-
al golf on television
and wished that you too had
your own caddie?
Have you longed to have
someone carry your clubs,
rake the bunkers, provide
you accurate yardages to
carry lakes, cut a corner or
put the ball on the middle of
the green?
Short of earning your way
onto a professional tour or
hiring your best buddy to
lug your stuff around, it's not
an easy task.
What ifI told you that
getting accurate yardages
was no longer a matter of
finding a marked sprinkler
head, pacing here, there and
everywhere and then
pulling out your slide rule
and calculator?
Thanks to the latest
handheld GPS systems, any
golfer may now have his or
her very own personal
yardage tool.
Global positioning satellite
systems have been around
for quite a while. Many golf
courses have a system
hooked up to their fleet of
carts. They provide the
golfer with a plethora of
information.
The problem is that a
majority of courses still do
not have these systems. And
what happens when you
decide to walk?
Thanks to companies such
as iGolf, Sure shot GPS and

Golf columnist

SkyGolf, we now have a
solution: a hand-held golf-
specific GPS device.
If you aren't familiar with
GPS, it's really quite simple.
There are a dozen or so
dedicated satellites in orbit
around the Earth. These
satellites transmit coordi-
nates back and forth to
devices on the ground. The
satellites knowwhere
certain fixed objects are and
simply triangulate to tell you
where you are in relation to
those objects. The latest GPS
devices can tell you within a
few feet where you are in the
world. Using GPS we now
can have near exact dis-
tances in an instant.
The latest golf-specific
units are just a bit larger
than your cell phone and,
usually, easier to operate.
Thanks to competition and
decreasing costs of GPS
technology, acquiring a

Extension Service.


handheld GPS device has
become quite inexpensive.
Working your own unit is
quite simple. You go to the
company's Web site,
download the course
information onto the unit
and off you go. The newest
units can hold as many as 40
courses and most compa-
nies' databases cover nearly
every course in the world.
The basic information that
you get includes the dis-
tance to the front, center
and back of every green.
While playing, you can add
other points along the way,
such as bunkers, ponds and
so forth. They just need to
figure out a way to add the
beverage cart to the system
and we'll be good to go. It is
literally like having a caddie
do all of the math for you.
Have no fear if your home
course isn't in the database
yet. The units come with
detailed instructions on
how to mark and map any
golf course. And, your unit
will never become obsolete.
One feature I really like is
the one that allows you to
mark the spot where you
just hit your ball and when
you arrive at its new loca-
tion, get the distance
between the two points. It's
a great way to find out how
far you hit each club,
especiallyyour scoring
clubs.
Using these systems helps
us to play smarter and more


quickly. We can now know
the distance to carry a
bunker or hazard and the
distance to reach the front
of the green or fly over it.
Course management
becomes an easier part of
the game for us. No more
finding out after you've
flushed a three-wood, only
to have it come up 20 yards
short and in the water
because the green was
much farther away than it
looked.
Recent studies have
shown that a GPS system
can cut as much as 30-40
minutes from a slow round.
Many golfers admit that
slow play is what aggravates
them most about the game
and drives them away.
Speeding up play appeals to
the courses as well. Faster
play allows them to sell
more rounds every day.
The handheld GPS
caddies may not be able to
read putts, rake bunkers or
hunt for my golf balls in the
woods, but they will provide
me with tons of information
to help me lower my scores.
Best of all, I won't hear any
snickering when I hit a bad
shot.
