INDIAN RIVER COUN-
TY Local students
exceeded statewide aver-
age scores on the Florida
Comprehensive Assess-
ment Test, but high
school reading results
released last week con-
cerned district officials.
Or May 23, the Florida
Department of Education
released reading and
math scores for students
in fourth through 10"
grades.
This year, about 82 per-
cent of the district's high
school sophomores
passed the FCAT on their
first attempt. But a signifi-
cantly lower number -
about 55 percent -
passed the reading por-
tion of the exam.
To boost those num-
bers, district officials plan
to hire reading teachers at
district high schools.
"I think it's fair to say
the gap is still too wide
between proficient and
non-proficient students,"
said Fran Adams, assis-
tant superintendent for
curriculum and instruc-
tion.
High school students

Ruwe, Chief Executive
Officer of the Red Cross
North Treasure Coast
Chapter.
For more than 80 years
the Red Cross has served
St. Lucie and Indian
River counties.
The organization plans
on using funds to replace
many facility problems.
"The roof on our build-
ing is 30 years old," said
Ray McGowan, North

board member.
The organization is
currently in the process
of purchasing AED defib-
rillators.
With the fundraising
campaign the organiza-
tion hopes to purchase
vehicles, disaster materi-
als, pay personnel for
training, classes and
expand efforts to gain
more volunteers.

focused on expanding

Opponents debate merits,


pitfalls of proposed charter


BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer
GIFFORD Voters,
unhappy with elected offi-
cials, could remove them
from office using powers
outlined in a proposed
county charter.
But that document could
also constrict develop-
ment, cause land prices to
balloon and force middle
class residents from Indian
River County.
Two Republicans on
opposite sides of the char-
ter proposal County
Commission Peter O'Bryan
and formerVero Beach City
Council member Bob Solari
- brought their arguments
to the Gifford Youth Activity
Center last week.
"Why do we want charter
government when our cur-


rent form of government
has given us the county we
love?" Mr. Solari said.
Mr. O'Bryan, elected in
November, has supported
the proposed charter,
which is written to give vot-
ers control over some land
use and density decisions.
The proposed charter,
drafted by a Tallahassee
consultant, would also give
voters the ability to petition
for recall elections of coun-
ty commissioners.
"One thing the charter
does, it gives you the power
of recall," Mr. O'Bryan said.
."If you don't like what I'm
doing, you have to wait four
years to try and vote me
out. But, with a charter, you
can recall me from office if
I'm not doing what I said I

Board

chooses

new leader

for schools

New
superintendent
could earn up
to $175K
BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer
INDIAN RIVER COUN-
TY A month ago, David
Piccolo was the No. 4
choice of School Board
members searching for
the next superintendent.
Last week, he was
tapped for superintend-
ent of Indian River County
Schools, edging out seven
other candidates for a
post that could pay up to
$175,000 per year.
Mr. Piccolo serves as an
area superintendent: in
the Brevard County
School District. His famil-
iarity with Florida educa-
tion standards and his
experience as a high
school principal, teacher
and coach tipped the vote
in his favor, board mem-
bers said.
After three rounds of
balloting on May 23, the
board voted 4-1 to hire Mr.
Piccolo instead of Harry
La Cava, the second final-
ist and an area superin-
tendent with Broward
County Public Schools.
"I'm honored to be
offered the position," Mr.
Piccolo said the next day.
"It's a great feeling to
know that someone has
that kind of trust in you."
Two finalists the board
selected in April -
Springfield, Mass., schools
Superintendent Joseph
Burke and Fort Laud-
erdale education consult-
ant Santiago Wood -
were not among board
members' top three picks
last week.
In late April, board
members ranked Mr. Pic-
colo fourth on their list of
top candidates, and Mr.
La Cava third.
Along with other candi-
dates, Mr. Piccolo was
interviewed in May. Board
members said his support
for school principals and
the high-performing
schools he oversees
impressed them.
As a Brevard, County
Schools area superintend-
ent, Mr. Piccolo, 49, over-
sees 19,000 of the district's
75,000 students. Large

math portions of the FCAT
to receive a diploma. If
they fail initially, they may
take the test up to six
times.
The scores showed that
the percentage of district
students who performed
at or above grade level met
or exceeded state averages
in reading and math. The
exception was for fourth-
graders, who missed the
distinction by one per-
centage point on the math
portion of the test.
Overall, district admin-
istrators were pleased
with the results, but tar-
geted areas for improve-
ment.
"When we look at our
data over the last five years
we've made good
progress," Ms. Adams said.
Except for district
fourth- and sixth-graders,
more students are reading
at grade level than last
year. The fourth-grade lev-
els held steady at 68 per-
cent, while sixth-graders
dipped from 68 percent
last year to 64 percent this
year.


The reading portion of
the test is graded on a five-
level scale, with one being
the lowest and five the
highest. Students who
score at level three and
above are considered to be'
at grade level.
Interim Superintendent
Duncan N.P. "Pat" Pritch-
ett said he was pleased
with the overall results,
and added that his staff
would continue to analyze
the data.
In the effort to improve
scores, the district will also
focus on students who
have trouble reading.
"The state asked that we
give remediation to non-
fluent readers," Ms.
Adams said. "If a student
can't read at a certain rate,
that has a lot to do with
comprehension."
On the math portion of
the test, the results were
largely the same as 2006.
District fifth-, seventh-
and eighth-graders scored
at grade level, while
fourth-, sixth- and ninth-
graders' scores dropped
slightly.

Tree heist becomes thorny issue


BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staffwriter
VERO BEACH -
Deputies called the bluff
of two Vero Beach men
who tried to settle a
poker debt by stealing a
palm tree from a con-
struction site last week.
George William Mur-
phy, 24, of 2445 Indian
River Blvd., and Shawn
Alexander Pannullo, 26,
of 4804 Second St., were
charged with grand theft
and trespassing after the
May 23 incident.
At press time, Mr. Mur-
phy was being held at the
Indian River County Jail


on $6,500 bond. Mr. Pan-
nullo was released May
24 on $6,500 bond.
A witness told the Indi-
an River County Sheriff's
Office that she watched
as the suspects dug out a
12-foot-tall palm tree
from a construction site
at the, Lakes of Brook
Haven development. The
men then loaded the tree
into a pickup truck and
drove away at about 6
p.m.
From the development,
located at 4800 13th St.
S.W., the woman followed
the men to a house at
4804 Second St. Once
there, the men unloaded


the tree and took it to the
backyard, according to
arrest reports.
Deputies arrived at the
home around 6:45 p.m.,
and handcuffed and
arrested Mr. Murphy,
who told them that two
other men were involved
in the incident and that
they should be arrested.
Deputies also arrested
Mr. Pannullo.
"I know I screwed up,"
Mr. Pannullo told
deputies. "Can we try to
make contact with the
property owner and I will
pay him for the tree? I'll
pay him for tree right
now."


Shawn Arnold, who told
police that he waited in
the backseat of the Nis-
san Titan pickup truck
while the two other men
dug out the tree, said Mr.
Murphy had lost a poker
game and owed $45 to
SMr. Pannullo.
In turn, Mr. Pannullo
said he would accept
payment in the form of a
foxtail palm tree, accord-
ing to arrest reports.
Mr. Arnold told
deputies that he thought
"they were going some-
where legitimate to get a
tree," the arrest report

South Florida developer
snaps up pair of local hotels
VERO BEACH Two local hotels were sold to a South
Florida developer in a deal that totaled more than $14
million.
Coral Gables-based RodBlu Investments bought the
Hampton Inn and Country Inn & Suites last month. The
two hotels, west ofVero Beach and adjacent to Interstate
95, are two of the largest in the area.
The hotels were sold as part of a $45 million deal that
also included two Miami hotels and a Hampton Inn in
Florida City.

Students unhurt after field trip bus accident

VERO BEACH A charter bus carrying third-grade
Dodgertown Elementary School students to SeaWorld
was involved in a minor accident last week. No students
were hurt in the incident.
A speeding motorist clipped the bus on May 22. The
bus was one of three carrying students to the Orlando
marine park.
The speeding motorist, who was trying to exit the
Beachline Expressway, caused a chain-reaction, five-
vehicle accident at County Road 417 that left three peo-
ple hospitalized.
The damaged bus had to remain at the accident scene,
while the two other buses picked up its 20. chaperones
and students.

Cost of implementing city's vision
surpasses $320K
VERO BEACH City officials have spent more than
$320,000 since 2003 to envision plans for future Vero
Beach development.
The city Vision Plan, which the City Council set in
motion in December 2003, is the result of the invest-
ment, which has been crafted with the help of outside
consultants.
The document is designed to lay out goals for future
development by defining how certain areas of the city
will be used and calls for master plans for land-use deci-
sions.
To implement the plan, city staff members are writing
those plans and drafting ordinances to address building
height, historic preservation, parking and other issues.
The City Council voted 4-1 on May 15 to ask for bids for
future vision work. The council also broke ties with Jack-
sonville-based HDR Engineering, which had worked on

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 craftsman 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.

said he refused to partic-
ipate and waited in the
truck.
He told deputies that
Mr. Pannullo grabbed a
shovel from the truck
bed, and with Mr. Mur-
phy's help, dug out three
and placed it on the
truck bed. The three men
then drove back to Mr.
Pannullo's home.
Following the arrests,
Deputy David Ragley
spoke to a local tree
salesman, who estimat-
ed the tree was worth
about $350..
Mr. Arnold and Grego-

father, then returned the
tree to the construction
site.
Deputy Jeff Luther, the
sheriff's department
spokesman, said thieves
have been known to take
plants, appliances and
copper tubing from con-
struction sites.
"We have a lot of con-
struction theft up and
down the Treasure
Coast," he said. But, he
added, "With the com-
munity's help we can
solve these things."

would do."
The recall process is too
complicated, and often
ineffective, Mr. Solari
countered.
"Yes, there is recall under
the charter, but it is very
difficult to recall corrupt
public officials," Mr. Solari
said. "Just look at South
Florida."
The three largest South
Florida counties, Palm
Beach, Broward and
Miami-Dade, are governed
under charters.
Across the state, 19 of the
67 counties are governed
under charters,' including
neighboring Brevard and
Osceola counties.
In Indian River County,
Mr. O'Bryan and other
commissioners voted 4-1
last month to indefinitely
postpone the charter
process, but the issue has
remained divisive.
The May 24 debate,
sponsored by the Frederick
Douglass Republican Club,
was set up to inform voters
about the charter process,
said Matt Sims, the club
president.
During the hour-long
event, Mr. O'Bryan told the
15-member audience that
unwise planning not
charter government had
helped fuel growth in
densely populated South
Florida.
"Go look at a map of
Broward County, and you
know what you see?" Mr.
O'Bryan said. "Every city
has annexed right up to
the other city. The 31
municipalities down there
have annexed every single
drop of land."
Officials in the county's
five cities have been wary
of the proposed charter,
and are worried that they
would have to cede some

Commission.
"The mayors of the
municipalities are against
it because they're afraid.
that you the people will
exercise your power to do
better things for the coun-
ty," Mr. O'Bryan said.
Under a charter, he con-
tinued, voters could initi-
ate cost-saving measures,
such as creating a unified,
countywide police force.
A county charter could
actually prove more costly
to taxpayers, Mr. Solari
argued. He pointed to
Pinellas County, where
municipalities and the
county fought an expen-
sive legal battle last year
over proposed changes to
the county charter.
After he decided against
running for another City


Council term in January,
Mr. Solari announced he
was considering a 2008
County Commission bid.
The charter debate will
likely be a centerpiece of
that election. I
The proposed document
would limit development
on the western side of the
Urban Service Area line,
which determines where
high-density development
can occur.
Mr. Solari warned that
such a move could cause
the price of land to sky-
rocket and exacerbate the
county's shortage of
affordable housing.
"Where are the teachers,
paramedics, lawn guys and
everyone 'who doesn't
make $75,000 a year going
to live?" he said.

What will happen


Can any of you even
imagine what will
happen to Indian
River County, and all of
the cities, not just Vero
Beach, if Piper leaves
town?
Fifty million dollars?
One should be offering
$150m million.
It does not have to be
allocated immediately -
spread it over many
years.
Can you even imagine
the benefit to Indian
River County over the
next ten years if Piper
stays?
Mr. William Fruth,
president of POLICOM
Corporation, is estimat-
ing that there will be at
least $750,000,000 per
year spent in this county
if Piper were to stay.
I quote him, "Over 10
years you're looking at a
$7 billion economic
impact."
Mr. Sabin Abell, vice
mayor of Vero Beach,
says $50,000,000 is OK,
"but don't give up the
farm."
Ladies and gentlemen, I
have been here only eight
years. You have already
given up the farm.
Now you will let the
only viable business in
the county leave without
giving them any signifi-
cant incentives to stay.
At the very least, be
competitive with the
other cities vying for
Piper.
All of you know of the
waste that has taken
place in Indian River
County over the past few
years.
The cost of removing
employees from their
jobs because of the whim
of a few people, or
because of poorly written
contracts, has been very
expensive for any taxpay-
er, be it city or county.
Yes, Mr. Abell, you and
your partners have
already "given up the
farm."
In just the last year, the
School Board (they are
part of the IRC bureau-
cracy) paid $100,000 per
acre, approximately
$15,000,000, for a piece
of property that they are
now saying is inappropri-
ate for a school, or a
school administration
building.
If Piper leaves, will you
really need to think
about building new
schools?
School enrollment is
down statewide. People
are leaving Florida
because of rising taxes
and insurance rates.:
What will the effect of
Piper's move to another
location do to your
school population? Your
teacher population? Your
school administration
population?
Piper families will have
to go to work somewhere,
and it won't be Indian
River County. There is no
local industry available
to absorb that many
people.


You spent $12,000,000
for the Sexton property.
I understand it was
bought for conservation
and historical reasons. I
am still very confused
about that purchase and
the reason seems very
Svague to me.
That was money you
spent that has absolutely
no positive economic
impact on the county.
Piper's leaving will have
an impact.
Again, you have "given
up the farm."
There are other conser-
vation and historical
properties that you have
purchased, and taken off
the tax rolls, but I don't
have numbers in hand to
address those purchases.
Vero Beach and Indian
River County have spent
millions over the years
wooing the Dodgers, who
are now preparing to
leave.
What was their finan-
cial impact on the city
and county?
$750,000,000 a year? I
think not. The Dodgers
paid $1 for the golf
course property, and the
city bought it back for
$10,000,000. I thinkwe
could assume that is
definitely a negative
economic impact.
If Piper leaves, you may
again want to rethink
establishing another golf
course on that property.
Who will be your cus-
tomers?
You spend millions and
millions of dollars every
year to pump sand on the
beach. And every year or
so, it washes back out to
sea. Another negative
economic impact.
The $150,000,000 you
could spend on keeping
Piper here would be a
mere drop in the bucket
compared to the amount
of money spent by Piper,
their employees, their
visiting dignitaries, their
customers, ard any other
people who have busi-
ness with the company.
People who buy jet
airplanes spend big
dollars on a plane, big
dollars to stay in hotels-
and eat, big dollars for
maintenance, big dollars
for fuel, and big dollars
for entertainment.
The loss of these
revenues would be
devastating.
Just think about the
impact on hotels/motels,
eating establishments,
entertainment centers,
fuel companies, mainte-
nance industries, golf
courses, marinas, charter
boat companies, corm- ..
puter companies, and
real estate companies.
There is no end to the
number of businesses
that would be hurt.
The number of people
who say "Oh, just let
them go, or don't spend a
dime to keep them here"
appalls me. All of us will .
rue the day Piper leaves.

Solar energy

I recently read we are
spending millions for
energy for a few county
buildings, and yet there is
not one solar panel being
installed on any of the new
community and govern-
ment buildings now being
built in our county.
Almost prohibitive
restrictions have been lob-
bied by FPL for solar panel
installations, but even so,
once the installation is
made, the energy is free,
and there is little mainte-
nance.
We, at last, have a gover-
nor who has set aside, mil-
lions for alternative energy.
It is the responsibility of
the county commissioners
to step in, and guide us
into a future not depend-
ent on coal, gas, and gaso-
line for all of our energy
needs.
Every new government,,
community and service
building should be pow-
ered by solar energy.
Every developer should
only be able to build
homes powered by solar
energy.
Within three years, there
will be sufficient electric
vehicles to fill our trans-
portation needs.
While there is another
massive coal burning gen-
erator plant being built in a
neighboring county, we
should take the lead now
to protect our future, and
hold our county people
responsible if we don't.
After all we are "The Sun-
shine State Stop the bleed-
ing

Still giving us the
business
Well, the insurance com-
panies are still giving us
the business.
I thought that after the
state said rates would not
be able to go up crazy
amounts, that we would at
least see some kind of san-
ity. ,
I was quickly shown that
it was all smoke and mir-
rors. My insurance went
from $2,100 to more than
$4,000 this year.

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 offact will be checked for
accuracy.


I called the Governor's
office to complain. They
agreed that it should not
have happened, took the
information, and trans-
ferred me to the insurance
commissioner's office.
At this point I was told
two things that really dis-
turbed me. All right, I was
really ticked!
I was told first, that I
should consider myself
lucky that I even had insur-
ance; second, that State
Farm sidestepped the law-
makers' decision, and
went to federal arbitration
so they did not have to
abide by that ruling.
His exact words were,
"they went over our heads
to the federal government,
and got their way." I think
that if they threaten to pull
out, let them.
How can they just drop
people, or double, double,
rates for no real reason,
except to alleviate their
risk?
Why doesn't Mr. Crist tell
them: If you want to pull
out, fine, but pull every-
thing out, no more car, life,
health nothing. You
want to go, then go, but
you will not be allowed to
discriminate against the
residents. You will also not
be able
to make any money in
Florida.
There are a lot of people
moving, out of Florida
because they just can't
afford it.
Somebody has to stop
the bleeding because the
band-aid has failed.

Editor's Note: State Farm
was contacted, but did not


respond to this rant.

Post office problems

Here we go again with
unacceptable manage-
ment practices at the post
office.
I am a city carrier. I
always hear customers
complaining that here are
not enough clerks, there
are long lines in the lobby,
and that the mail is being
delivered late.
The post office contin-
ues the practice of under-
staffing, and refusing to
hire necessary help to get
the job done correctly.
Please don't blame the
employees that do their
best every day. It is not
their fault, and they do try
their best to provide cus-
tomer service in every way
they can.
Carriers work hard, and
we are proud to wear out
blue uniforms. Our raises
do not coincide with
stamp price increases. Our
union contract has been
up for renewal since
November of 2006, and has
been in negotiation since.
It will be going through
arbitration in the next few
months.
One of the big disagree-
ments we have is the prac-
tice of hiring unqualified
help. We have seen what
this practice can do to mail
service.
Some if these contract
workers have not been
delivering mail, taking it
home on Saturdays, and
delivering it on Sundays, or
not at all.
Some o them have been
hired without even going


through security checks.
They are hired for less pay,
and no benefits. Do you
want someone with those
credentials delivering your
mail?
It is likely carriers will be
out picketing some time in
June. We would appreciate
support from our cus-
tomers. We know how
important your mail is to
you, and feel you should
have qualified carriers
ensuring your delivery.

Why do they
call it waste?

Walking around my
neighborhood, I see
numerous items being put
out for trash collection.
Some of these items,
such as furniture, bicycles,
tools, and toys are in good
condition, and could be
donated to various chari-
ties, like Hibiscus House,
the Disabled Veterans, or
the Salvation Army for the
less fortunate to use, or for
others to buy.
This is what I do. I also
donate my books and
magazines to the Veterans
Administration and local
hospitals for others to
enjoy.
Otherwise, it just goes to
the landfill.
Why do you think they
call it waste?

James Tucker's
column

This is in response to
James Tucker's "To be
loved at last."
Some of us have broken
through the labyrinth of
established thinking pat-
terns to seek the wisdoms
and the truths of the far
distant past.
We seek to know who
could have built those
nearly perfect pyramids,
not only in Egypt, but also
in the Americas, China,
Thailand, and Japan.
We seek to know who
were these so-called gods
and goddesses, and what
did they represent.
We seek to understand

the mysteries of the daily evening sky, and the messages
from the stellar galaxies, which were studied, analyzed,
and explained by ancestral wise women and wise men.
We seek to practice the very ancient ways of healing
using pure herbs, flowers, roots, plants, etc. that helped
our ancient relatives to be healthy so that, today, you and
I are here.
Some of us seek to put in practice successful discoveries,
such as those of Nicole Tesla, and want to begin to tap the
ether of the universe for our clean energy uses.
In our attempts to better humanity, we each seek to be
loved and heard.
Maybe soon we can be loved and heard, rather than
being chastised and hunted down with such wonders as
James Tucker who write the Spirit Guide column, and with
the Hometown News helping his rational, loving thoughts
to reach thousands of people.

Guest worker program
Shut the borders, close the doors, and let no more in.
They are here, get them, and make them spend two
years in the service fighting for this country. If they make it
back alive, then maybe they can become citizens.
Let them learn to speak English, put down the
weedwacker, and pick tip a gun.

Transportation is lacking
I would like to know, with all the interest in attracting
seniors to the so-called "Treasure Coast," why someone in
authority hasn't had sense enough to build rails that they
could ride to shop and sightsee, instead of pushing new
lanes on the freeways.
The United States of America is supposed to be so far
ahead of other countries. Anyone who has been to Europe
knows this is not true.
American businessmen have told me that, while there,
they did not need a car at all due to the great transporta-
tion on rails and rivers, which I saw personally in Ger-
many.
This would not appeal to our oilmen, right?

Time for a rave
This is about the Hometown Newspaper.
Your religious columnist, Pastor David Goode, gives
more spiritual guidance than any church mass I have ever
attended. His interesting and easy teachings of Jesus
could benefit everyone of all ages, religions, male or
female.
I, personally, have cut out several columns and mailed
them to my daughter and two grandsons in Texas.
At 13- and 16-years-old they look forward to the easy
reading of such an important subject.
As I look around the world today, I wish everyone could
read this column, especially the teenagers, for they are the
future.

\ U


If Pastor Goode heals, or enlightens just one reader a
week, we would have a safer and happier Treasure Coast.
Maybe he is the treasure of our coast.
Please continue to publish his columns, for I believe it
reaches many unsung readers.

Immigration reform bill
I would like to make a comment on the U.S. Senate, and
the immigration reform bill.
I can honestly say that at being 55 years old, and watch-
ing these politicians, I cannot believe that they are so full
of hot air.
All they want to do is hear themselves speak. This is not
a hard thing to get through their minds, and their brains.
Just close the borders, round everybody up who is illegal
and doesn't belong here, and send him or her back to their
country.
Then let them come back the right way.
It's not that hard. I just can't understand how these peo-
ple can stand there and bull crap us the way they are
doing.
It is totally ludicrous that in this country, we are paying
these politicians this kind of money to do hot air balloon
acts.

Obese personnel
To the person who wrote of medical workers being
obese, I have noticed the very same thing.
I wonder if it is because of thankful patients bringing in
cookies, donuts, and such, to show appreciation to the
staff?
I also serve the public, and I'll tell you, that is what
most people bring us.
One time a fellow brought in frozen yogurt, and we
have one other customer who brings us bags of fruit. I
feel those are much more helpful to maintain our health
and energy levels in order to serve the public better.

Pull up your pants
To the person who asked parents to "teach" our chil-
dren to pull up their pants, your comment sounds face-
tious, bordering on obnoxious. You sound no better than
the children you write of.

Go with the flow
In response to the rant entitled, "Would it be so bad."
You must be living in a dream world. I guess you are as
old as I am, but I go with the flow.
After I wrote my article I thought the subject of "snow-
birds" was closed.
This article of yours sounds like discrimination against
your own countrymen.
You must have plenty of money to be complaining
about making reservations three weeks ahead, and the
roadways on Memorial Day. Your "own" Floridians sure
make good use of it.
I guess they are richer than most of us, to be able to pay
such high prices for gasoline.


You can bet there will be lots of road rage going on.
Since your time has stood still for many years, let me
remind you that we live in the year 2007.
Wake up.

Seniors can help
I am a senior, and I want to say something to the other
seniors.
We can help out in this drought season. We can get up,
and go out to water a tree, or the bushes, or plants. These
are not going to come back.
The grass eventually will come back; it would only
need seed to get that going again.
If we lose these little trees, and these nice high hibiscus
bushes, it's going to take years to get them back again.
So, if you have extra water in your sink, or you've got
some bottled water left, go out and give that little bush a
drink.
We can strive to not waste any water inside.
I've cut the water down in my bathroom sink. One just
has to turn the valve underneath the sink down halfway.
There is no need for that big amount of water coming
out of the faucet just to brush our teeth, or wash our face.
We seniors have a lot more time than the younger peo-
ple do. They are busy with the children, and their jobs
and things like that.
We can get out and help, and it would be good exercise
for us.
Don't try to go out with a gallon of water, just take a
small amount of water, and make several trips. Take a
plastic container and fill it half full, so it won't be too
heavy.
You'll enjoy it. If you have a little trouble walking, that's
OK. You'll make it, and the plants will appreciate it.
We can also try to save electricity.
I started to reduce the electricity in my bathroom. One
doesn't have to go in and turn the fan on, and have all the
lights turn on. Don't do that.
Get a little, tiny boudoir lamp, and set it on the counter,
or a couple little small bulbs for the overhead lamps.
The range can be turned off at least a minute and a half
earlier than normal. The heat is still coming out during
that time, while you are still cooking things.
Use a nightlight in the bathroom, and in the kitchen, so
when you go out there for small things in the evening you
don't turn on that big fluorescent light. You can put a lit-
tle nightlight on either side of the stove or on the wall.
Plan ahead with the refrigerator. Don't open and close
it all of the time.
Have a clothes rack for drying personal clothes and
things.
Only run the dishwasher for full loads, if you use it at
all. I wash my dishes three times a day. It's easy.
Look for dripping or leaky faucets, reduce oven use,
and reduce air conditioning somewhat.
There are some shady times of the morning where
maybe it is not needed for an hour or so. That hour a day
'will help, as the month goes on.
Reduce the use of ceiling fans. They use a lot of elec-
tricity. Use small floor fans, instead.

Selection
From page Al
Brevard and Broward rely
on teams of area superin-
tendents to manage staff
members and run every-
day operations.
In Indian River County,
he is expected to replace
interim Superintendent
Duncan N.E "Pat" Pritch-
ett as the head of the
17,000-student district
early this summer.
In his Brevard post, Mr.
Piccolo earns $105,924,
but could earn up to
$175,000 as the Indian
River schools chief.
If contract negotiations
with him unravel, the
board agreed that it would
hire Mr. La Cava instead.
"I do think the person
who can hit the ground
running the fastest would
be Dr. Piccolo," said board
member Ann Reuter, who
voted for him during all
three rounds of balloting.
Other board members
worried that Mr. Piccolo,
who serves in an affluent,
high-performing district,
had not overcome chal-
lenges associated with
improving test scores for
poor or minority students.
Lenora Quimby, the
board member who cast
the dissenting vote against
hiring Mr. Piccolo, argued
for Mr. La Cava, saying she
liked his take-charge lead-
ership style.
Board Chairwoman
Carol Johnson hoped the
final vote, to direct district
staff members to open
negotiations with Mr. Pic-
colo, would be unani-
mous.
Ms. Quimby told the
other board members that
she could not follow the
majority.
She pointed to the con-
nections Mr. Piccolo had
with former Indian River
Schools Superintendent
Tom Maher whom the
board fired without cause
in December 2005 and
other past and present
district administrators.
"We have got to make a
clean break and hire
someone who is totally
objective, that can come
in and look at all of us and
look at us based on what
they know, not past expe-
rience," Ms. Quimby said.
In an interview the day
after the vote, Mr. Piccolo
said his experience in four
Florida school districts
and the professional rela-
tionships he fostered were
assets.
Board member Debbie
MacKay, who supported
Mr. La Cava during the
three rounds of balloting,
joined with other board
members during the final
vote.
Mrs. MacKay said Mr. La
Cava had taken "a tough
part of Florida" and made
a positive impact.
But Mrs. Reuter said Mr.
Piccolo's record also
showed that he could nav-
igate rocky terrain.
"I thought he made
some really tough deci-
sions up in Brevard," Mrs.
Reuter said. "He had oust-
ed some of his friends who
didn't perform up to the
goals that they initially set
and I think that's a very,
veryhard thing to do.

Rants & Raves
From page A7
Try not to turn on lights when they are not necessary.
Sometimes, it is just habit. We walk in a room and reach
over and turn on the light, when we really don't need it.
Some of the large companies, and malls with all those
spotlights on, when the sun is still shining, should think
about that, too. Many times that could be cut down by
several hours a day.
Different businesses could take it a little easier, and cut
some lights here and there, especially the car lots.
These are things that I have been thinking about, and I
wanted to pass them along.
No amnesty
This is an alert to all American citizens.
If you can still read this paper, evidently it is still being
printed in English, but probably not for long.
Hopefully, it will stay English.
Call the capitol, call Washington, call your elected offi-
cials don't allow amnesty. This bill they are trying to
pass is an amnesty bill.
There should be no amnesty, no legalization for illegal
aliens, and that is what they are. They broke the law of
the country. No amnesty should be granted.
I don't see people in jail that got busted for half of a
gram, or an ounce of pot getting amnesty.
These people came across the border, and are illegals.
A vote will soon be taken on this bill. Call; let your
voice be heard. Don't let this bill be passed. No amnesty.
Pet overpopulation
To the person who sent in a rant about the pet owner-
ship tax, your rant is not funny or witty. It is just ignorant
and cruel, as all ignorance usually is.
Thousands of unwanted dogs and cats are born with-
out thought. They are then discarded, or are given a tax-
paid-for, lethal injection into their innocent paws and
hearts yearly in St. Lucie County.
You find a program that is being supported by
humane, responsible, good leaders who want to stop this
continued cruelty and abuse, and the unethical use of
our taxpayers' dollars funny?
Don't you know that is costing us $1 million yearly in
taxes in St. Lucie County for unwanted animal services?
The idea is to decrease future costs for the unwanted
pet overpopulation problem.
You're moving the columns
I have always loved reading the Hometown News, and
especially the different columnists.
However, in the last few weeks the entire layout of the
paper has changed and I never know where to go to read
them. I always turned to Grammy Guru first, and loved
her column as well as Compute This.
Now, it's put who knows where in the paper, even
sometimes in what is called the Classified Section.
What's up with this? It sure is a huge disappointment.
Now, I sometimes don't even read the paper.
Editor's note: You are correct that Hometown News has
recently redesigned the B-section fronts to feature our
Dining & Entertainment stories and calendars more
prominently. Press and space limitations often dictate the
resulting placement of our standing feature columns,
which does not always allow your favorite columns to be
placed next to each other under one heading, as they were
previously. In such cases, the editors place columns on
pages where readers would logically expect to find them,
i.e., 'Compute This' on the business page, for example.

Aftermath can be as


dangerous as storm itself


T ast year, we all
breathed a sigh of
relief as the hurri-
canes stayed away.
Human nature being
what it is, we all tend to
forget the warnings about
preparation and safety.
Many of the injuries,
illnesses and deaths that
follow a storm or extreme
weather, are not from the
storm itself.
Downed power lines,
spoiled food, unsafe water,
hot temperatures and
improper use of generators
are hazards that remain
after the storm has passed.
Here are some tips to
keep you and your family
safe; others can be found
at the Department of
Health Web site at
www.doh.state.fl.us.

Food safety

If you've lost power and
have any doubt about
whether food is still good,
throw it out.
Discard refrigerated
food if it has been at room
temperature for two hours
or more, or if it has an
unusual odor, color or


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well

texture.
A full cooler will keep its
cold temperature longer
than a partially filled one;
pack it with extra ice or
freezer packs.
Thawed food can
usually be eaten if it is still
"refrigerator cold."
Fight cross-contamina-
tion by not putting food on
a plate or cutting board
where you have put raw
meat, fish or poultry.
If there is any risk to the
water supply, drink and
wash dishes with bottled
water. Don't forget to
protect your pets with safe
water, as well.

Water safety

If your area is under boil
water advisory, you can
drink bottled water. There
are ways to make your tap
water safe.
Bring water to a full
rolling boil for at least 1
minute to kill most germs.
For areas without power,
disinfect the tap water by
adding eight drops, or
about 1/8 teaspoon of
plain, unscented bleach
per gallon of water and


allow it to stand for 30
minutes. If the water is
cloudy, repeat the process.
Cover the disinfected
water to protect re-
contamination.
For personal hygiene,
you can vigorously wash
your hands with soap and
tap water. If you are
preparing food, use
cooled-down boiled water,
disinfected or bottled
water and hand soap.
It is safe to wash clothes
in tap water, but dishes
should be rinsed in a
bleach solution (1 table-
spoon per gallon of water).
Paper goods are a safe bet
while a boil water advisory
is in effect.

Dehydration

Even if you do not feel
thirsty, it is a good idea to
drink more water than
usual, especially if you are
involved in physical
activity like cleaning up
after a storm. For infants
and young children, check
with a doctor about fluid
intake.

Heat exhaustion

Hot temperatures, no air
conditioning and a lot of
physical activity while
clearing away debris, can
mean heat exhaustion and
a trip to the emergency
room. The elderly, those
with high blood pressure
and people working in hot
environments are most at
risk.

April unemployment
climbs past 2006
levels

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
- The unemployment rate
in Indian River County
nudged to 4.1 percent in
April, up from the 3.5 per-
cent recorded during the
same month in 2006..


The results were part of a
report released last month
by the Florida Agency for
Workforce Innovation.
The jobless rates also
climbed in St. Lucie and
Martin counties, meaning
about 3,500 more people
along the Treasure Coast
seeking work in April 2007
than in April 2006.
Employees in the con-
sutuction, utilities and
transportation fields took
the hardest hits, according
to the report.
Statewide, the unemploy-
ment rate for April \vas 3.-

cent in April 2006. That
means about 289,000.peo-
ple without jobs in April

Don't be in great big hurry to


buy latest operating system


I EEi


--


It's been a few months
now since Microsoft
released Vista, its new
operating system, and the
questions are starting to
trickle in.
Every time a new operat-
ing system gets released,
we go through this, and
the questions don't seem
to change much.
The most often asked
question seems to be,
"Should I upgrade now?"
My answer at this point
is to wait.
In the mid 1990s,
Microsoft went from
Windows 3.1 (a graphical
"shell" that sat on top of
the real operating system
at that time, DOS) to
Windows 95, and people
asked the same thing.
Then again, in the late
1990s, we went from
Windows 95 to Windows
98 and got flooded with
the same question.
Shortly after that we
went from Windows 98 to
Windows ME (remember
that one?) and the pattern
repeated itself.
Next came Windows
2000, Windows XP and
now, finally, Vista.
It seems people always
want to jump on the
band- wagon and upgrade
as soon as a new operat-
ing system is released.
My answer is always the
same: "No, not yet. Wait a
bit."
So why is that?
My reasoning lies in the
fact that when these new
operating systems are
released, they are not
quite finished yet. We
need to give it some time
for them to work out the
bugs.


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This

Let me explain.
Whenever a new operat-
ing system is released, it
has gone through exten-
sive testing at Microsoft
and for all intents and
purposes, is finished.
The problem is, it's
pretty much impossible to
test a program as big as an
operating system in every
conceivable configuration
with every piece of hard-
ware out there and make
sure it's able to manage
every piece of software
people are liable to try to
run.
So, what do they do?
They get the new soft-
ware running as best they
can and then make it
available to the public.
Then, over the course of
the next year or so, they
take all of the most
commonly reported
problems and release
patches or "service packs"
that fix whatever issues
they were able to figure
out.
The process continues
with users reporting
problems (minor glitches
all the way up to serious
show-stopping errors) and
engineers correcting the


problems and publishing
the fixes in additional
service packs and
updates.
The first people who run
the new operating system
get to be the guinea pigs
and that's just how it's
always been.
With that in mind, the
next question I am usually
asked is when to upgrade.
I advise people to give it
at least a year or more
after the release. Let
someone else do the
testing, especially if you
rely on your machine to
get your work done.
The last thing I want to
do is get interrupted by
unexpected errors that no
one has an answer for yet
while trying to get some
work done.
By giving it a year or so,
you give the engineers
time to stabilize the
software and, hopefully,
correct most of the major
errors that made it out in
the initial release.
Another thing to consid-
er is that the current
operating system (in this.
case XP) has already gone
through this refining
process and is usually
pretty stable by now.
That's an important
consideration to keep in
mind, especially if you use
your machine for impor-
tant tasks.
Does this mean I don't
recommend anyone
switch to the new dperat-
ing system at this time?
No, we need someone to
run the system or how will
they ever work out all of
the bugs?

fact, I don't think I even
know anyone who works
there. I am writing this as
a private citizen who has
a very real concern over
this potential loss.
You cannot run a county

lawyers, government, i.e.
city and county em poy-

nies.
Invest wiselyin our
future, the future of our

From page A 11
If you are a casual
computer user and are
not relying on your
machine for important
"critical" tasks, or if you
can afford to risk render-
ing your machine unus-
able for a bit, while you
trouble- shoot and correct
some weird problem no
one has seen before, then
go for it.
Someone has to do it,
right?
Sean McCarthy has

since 1978.


Bryan Butler of Vero Beach
wasn't at all bothered by
the rough surf at South
Beach last week, as high
winds and rough waters
kept most beachgoers out
of the water.

TRAVEL




Getting to the Taj Mahal is more than half the fun


A few weeks ago, I
returned from my
SAsixth trip to India.
This time I was driving
through the peaceful
Himalayan regions of
Darjeeling, Sikkim,
Kangra and Dharamsala,
home of the Dalai Lama.
You might actually
think you were in
Switzerland because this
part of India is so calm
and pristine.
Driving is slow and
measured on the winding
mountain roads, where
passing on a curve is the
norm.
As you leave the
Himalayas and head
south towards the cities
however, everything
intensifies.
People drive three deep,
horns blare and the roads
are jammed once again.
Having plunged back
into India's frenetic pace,
I began to think about my
favorite road in all of
India.
It is the two-lane
"highway" that takes us
from Jaipur to Agra to see
the Taj Mahal.
The Taj, built by Shah
Jahan as a mausoleum for
his beloved wife, is a sight
to behold.
When I think of it
though, I always chuckle
because I know that
getting there is more than
half the fun.
Most people take the
train or drive from New
Delhi to Agra to see it.
However some people,
like me, prefer driving
from the city of Jaipur in
the Thar Desert. Typical-

ly, we spend two or three
days touring Rajasthan's
"pink city" first.
Jaipur is brimming with
colorful temples, ornate
palaces, painted ele-
phants to ride and
camels to use on treks
through the desert.
I adore it, and it's
always hard to leave, but
eventually it's time to
head to Agra.
Some people will drive
to Rathambore National
Park for safari first, in
hopes of seeing the
elusive tiger.
I've done that before
and it's fun, but I prefer
the direct route that takes
about 4-5 hours.
This two-lane road is a
never-ending circus of
motorbikes, camels,
pedestrians, elephants,
cars, huge decorated
TATA trucks (often
broken down), buses,
religious pilgrims, speed-
ing cars and dancing
bears (I'm not kidding).
You'll see women
working in the fields in

ing Indian market, with
everything under the sun
sold there.
This is when you know
you've seen the "real"
India.
After many blocks, you
start to emerge from the
market and see signs for
the hotels.
You think you're almost
there, but no, the traffic
suddenly grinds to a halt
again.
A herd of India's sacred
cows decide to cross the
road and everybody
absolutely must stop for
them. They take their
time and some even lie
down, forcing drivers to
inch around them. Horns
beep, but it doesn't
matter.
They're not budging.
So feeling tired and
dusty you wait, but isn't
this the lesson of
patience you came to
India to learn anyway?
Finally you get around
the herd and head down
a street that doesn't look


their spotless, florescent-
colored saris, men
smoking in the cafes and
children playing every-
where.
It is a feast for the eyes
and to me, this is India!
About half way through,
you'll pass Bharatpur
Bird Sanctuary and if you
have the time, it's worth a
stop.
I've only been there
once, but they claim
during the winter months
the influx of migrating
birds from Russia, Mon-
golia and parts of Asia is
amazing.
If you feel so inclined,
you can stay overnight in
the sanctuary because
there is decent lodging.
Another sight to see as
you drive closer to Agra is
the Mughal ghost city of
Fatehpur Sikri.
Emperor Akbar built the
city in 1569, as a place of
good fortune.
Sadly, he abandoned it
14 years later.
If you have an hour or
two to explore, you'll be
amazed at the beauty and
grandeur of its red
sandstone architecture
and ornate designs.
Now as you get closer to
Agra, the traffic is getting
worse and the streets are
narrowing.
That means you've just
entered Agra's vast
marketplace, so expect to
proceed at a snail's pace.
This is a typical, teem-

like a place for deluxe
hotels. All of a sudden,
you see them and, even
better, off in the distance
you see the first glimmer
of the dome of the Taj
Mahal.
It's bathed in the soft
pink light of the setting
sun and it's magnificent.
Tomorrow you'll be
there at dawn, to see this
true marvel of the
ancient world.
However challenging
the trip was to get there,
you'll know it was worth
it and hopefully more
than half the fun besides!

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!!!

The islands of the Trea-
sure Coast should prepare
for the worst, and should
prepare now.
That's one of the mes-
sages from Florida Atlantic
University's Center for
Urban and Environmental
Solutions, which last week
announced findings from
a lengthy study on hurri-
cane vulnerability and the
impacts of hurricanes
Frances and Jeanne..
Based on her report, FAU
senior research fellow Ana
Puszkin-Chevlin recom-
mended investment in
hardening and upgrading
infrastructure and proper-
ties on the barrier islands
of Martin, St. Lucie and
Indian River counties now
instead of post-disaster.
Following the 2004 hur-
ricanes, the Federal Emer-
gency Management
Agency provided $164.7
million in individual assis-
tance grants throughout
the region, including $12.5
million, or 8 percent, to
barrier island residents.
Many of these residents
lived in homes that were
not built up to snuff.
The study shows that 83
percent of the structures
on the island prior to the
hurricanes were built
before the 2001 building
code went into effect.
"We have a lot of older
infrastructure with certain
vulnerabilities," Ms.


"We have to find programs to retrofit the
current housing inventory... If we can do
things in advance, preemptively, we're going
to do much better'
Ana Puszkin-Chevlin

One of the major vulner-
abilities is flooding.
The Treasure Coast's bar-

31,709 acres valued at
$31.99 billion. Of that land,
20,346 acres are undevel-
oped. The developed
parcels alone have a tax
assessed value of $27 bil-
lion, which, in 2004, repre-
sented nearly 39 percent of
all the assessed value in
the three counties.
Still, of the 25,227
parcels on the islands,
15,382 are in the flood
zone, including 3,110
structures that were built
before detailed flood haz-
ard data and flood eleva-
tions were known, mean-
ing they were not built
with flood protection in
mind.
"We have to find pro-
grams to retrofit the cur-
rent housing inventory,"
Ms. Puszkin-Chevlin said.
"If we can do things in
advance, preemptively,
we're going to do much
better."
Along with readying bar-
rier island homes, the
study urges local govern-
ments to examine emer-
gency management strate-
gies.
Ms. Puszkin-Chevlin
said she found that post-
disaster plans are located
in numerous locations,
and the directions aren't
often clear.

what to do," she said.
"Sometimes these things
are in conflict, and they're
not well integrated."
Further, she said local
communities should base
their emergency manage-
ment plans not on the
average hurricane, but on
the range, which includes
category 1 all the way
through a worst-case-sce-
nario storm like Hurricane
Katrina.
So if a category 4 or 5
hurricane were to hit and
displace thousands of bar-
rier island residents, where
would they go?
"We can't just look at
shelters," Ms. Puszkin-
Chevlin said. "We have to
look at short-term housing
that's more permanent
than a shelter."
As development contin-
ues, more people will
move to the island, mean-
ing more people would
have to evacuate before a
storm, which is another
aspect addressed in the
study.
As this area has experi-
enced first hand, hurri-
canes damage more than
just people's homes.
The Treasure Coast's
coastal economy was
about $12 billion in 2005.
Some businesses in the
study area, including 12
hotels, never reopened
after Frances and Jeanne,
which leads to another
study recommendation.
"We have to network
businesses on the island
with businesses on the
mainland," Ms. Puszkin-
Chevlin said, noting that
the island businesses
could use temporary
space and resources on
the mainland during the
recovery period.
Further, she said
portable businesses, such
as canoe rentals, should
be allowed on the islands.
"These kind of business-
es are good for tourism,
and when a storm comes,
they can put their stuff in a
truck and go," she said.
SThe hurricanes didn't
impact tourism as much
as anticipated, the report
states. However, marinas
were hard hit and are still

struggling with managing
insurance premiums while
at the same time remain-
ing competitive.
"Insurance premiums
have more than doubled,"
said Dean Kubitschek,
manager of the Fort Pierce
City Marina. "It's tough to
afford insurance. A lot of
marinas are going self-
insured or reducing insur-
ance, if they can even get
insurance."
Boat insurance is also
now tougher to get than it
was in 2004 for many ves-
sels, he said.
"A lot of companies
won't insure a boat during
hurricane season in Flori-
da," Mr. Kubitschek said.
"Other insurance compa-
nies will jump the price
greatly if someone wants
to keep their boat here
during hurricane season.
They have to make a
choice of 'do we pay the
extra money or take the
boat to Georgia or the Car-
olinas until hurricane sea-
son is over?"'
The study, which was
funded by the National
Oceanic & Atmospheric
Administration, also
addresses hurricane
impact on the local
ecosystem, which received
great damage in 2004.
The state and federal
government spent mil-
lions on beach and dune
restoration on the Trea-
sure Coast. But inland,
rainwater from the hurri-
canes channeled into the
Indian River Lagoon,
changing salt levels and
impacting sea life, grass,
light and water quality.
"When people think of
the impacts of the storm,
they think, 'oh, my house,
or my property,' but the
impacts of a storm are
equally strong on the nat-
ural systems," Ms.
Puszkin-Chevlin said.
"Those systems need pro-
tection. We have to be
responsible stewards of
the natural environment."
In all, the message of
the study is, "The vulnera-
bilities are more in the
future if we continue
down a certain path," she
said.

Pay-Per-Clic

Requires Ex

Optimum RM
(Syndicated News) While there is little
doubt about the extensive possibilities that
pay-per-click (PPC) marketing offers busi-
nesses, many traditional advertising agen-
cies have been reluctant to use it with
clients. This is because most agencies lack
the expertise it takes to set up and manage
such complex campaigns. In order for
agencies to capitalize on the popularity of
this advertising segment it's imperative
that they learn everything they can about
pay-per-click.
According to Alteract Marketing's Mary
O'Brien, the tremendous growth in pay-
per-click marketing in recent years has
brought with it many misconceptions
behind its use. Because of its relatively easy
set-up procedure -- in many cases as sim-'
ple as signing up with a well-trafficked
search engine -- amateur efforts abound,
creating the opinion that little-to-no back-
ground knowledge is needed to develop a
highly successful marketing campaign.
Unfortunately for many disgruntled adver-
tisers, the opposite holds true.
"Pay-per-click marketing is just like any-
thing else in the business world -- you
need to have a fairly good understanding
of what you're doing to maximize return on

know about pay-per-click advertising, the
more money it will make you. The more
you don't know about it, the more it will
cost you."
As a result of such misconceptions,
many businesses have turned to educa-
tional seminars and classes to maximize
pay-per-click potential. Alteract Marketing,
for example, offers several two-day fully
customizable seminars (http://ppcsum-
mit.com) designed to cover PPC tech-
niques and strategies. O'Brien states that
the seminars are held in several cities in
the USA and
London to cover
PPC's internation-
al appeal.
"Pay-Per-Click

Diversity results in success


for Space Coast band.


BY TAMARA DOURNEY
Entertainment writer
Many bands find
international success, but
it is the rare few who can
lay claim to a true interna-
tional vibe.
Dub CityTribe, a Space
Coast band based out of
Melbourne, not only has
the unique flavor inherent
to true cultural blending, it
comes by it naturally. The
band boasts members that
hail from locales ranging
from Boston to theVirgin
Islands and even as far
away as Denmark. The
mixing of their diverse
backgrounds creates a
unique genre of music best
described as an eclectic
blend of rock, reggae, hip
hop and rhythm and
blues.
Bradley Camp, lead
vocalist for the group, is a
singer-songwriter who
originally hails from
Louisville, KY. He started
singing when he was a
teenager and his desire to
become a professional
musician eventually
brought him to central
Florida. His smooth,
mellow voice wraps itself
gracefully around the


delicious melodies and toe
tapping beats his band
members provide.
Mr. Camp works with
Rob Castro to write the
lyrics to their songs,
starting with a riff or chord
and building from there.
"Our songs are about
worldliness, Godliness,"
explains Mr. Camp. "There
is a definite theme of
staying positive in negative
times. We write a lot about
relationships, especially
relationships with God."
"Sometimes the songs
come backward though,"
adds Mr. Castro. "There are
times when we already
have a set of lyrics written
and the music just builds
from them."
Mr. Castro's talents aren't
limited to his songwriting.
Its hard not to be
entranced by the dynamic
sound that comes from his
skill on lead guitar as it
combines with that of John
Hulland on the bass. The
rhythm, which remains
sexy and very fresh
throughout their songs, is
provided by Bjarne Kjaer
on drums and Tim
Hawthorne on congas. A.J.
Aaron's ability to work the
keyboards provides the

'Treasure Bob' and

his quest for the

impossible dream


A tale of a
captain and his
pursuit of more
than just a
billion dollar statue
BY MATT DONEGAN
Staff writer
What could be the rich-
est shipwreck treasure in
history was discovered in
mid-May at an undis-
closed site in the Atlantic
Ocean, but a local man of
the cloth says the estimat-
ed $500 million haul is
small potatoes when com-
pared to a lost statue of
gold that sunk 350 years
ago.
Enter Bob Bouchlas, a
doctor of theology,
ordained Orthodox minis-
ter, man of the sea, knight,
AM radio personality, sto-
ryteller, explorer, historian
and more.
If Hollywood would lis-
ten for just a few hours,
they would have enough
life to make a helluva
based-on-a-true-story
film.
This much is fact: In
1980, Capt. Bouchlas dis-
covered the virgin wreck-
age of the Nuestra Senora
de las Maravillas, a Span-
ish galleon that went
down in 1656 in a geo-
graphically triangular area
formed by Bermuda,
Florida's low coast and
Grand Bahama Island.
"That is the apex of the
Devil's Triangle, right
there," said Capt: Bouch-
las, who resembles an out-
of-work mall Santa. "All
the weird things happen
there. Your compass will
spin a hundred miles an
hour, like a top."
From the wreck, he
recovered more than $1
million in coins, silver,
emeralds and artifacts.
But that is only scratching
the surface of a project to
which he has dedicated
his life.
The condensed version
of the story begins in the
1600s in Spain, which, led
by King Phillip IV, was in
an endless war defending-
the cause of the Roman
Catholic Church against
the Protestants. When
financing the war became
a problem, King Phillip
sent his armada to the
New World in search of
gold, diamonds, pearls
and riches.
As a symbol of Spain's
struggle, the king commis-
sioned the creation of a
life-sized statue of the Vir-
gin Mary and her Christ
Child. A sample statue was
delivered to the governor
of Mexico, with orders to
cast the likeness in the
purest gold of the land
and crown the Madonna
andthe Christ Child with
jewels.
Once completed; the
gold statue, believed to be.


up to 1,800 pounds, was
placed on the king's flag-
ship, the Nuestra Senora
de las Maravillas. On the
fleet's return trip to Spain,
the Maravillas found itself
in shallow water, and,
despite sounding warning
cannons, it was rammed
by one of its fellow ships.
The captain of the Mar-
avillas had the foresight to
maneuver toward "Devil's
Rock," sinking the ship
near the reef in 30 feet of
water. Close by, Capt.
Bouchlas said the water's
depth reaches more than a
mile.
"In the sinking of the
Maravillas, King Phillip
lost control and power,"
Capt. Bouchlas said. "He
needed this. The Spanish
empire was falling apart.
)See TREASURE, B6


Staff photo by Matt Donegan
Bob Bouchlas shows the Spanish piece of eight hanging
around his neck while he stands on the shore across from
one of his homes at Ocean Resorts in Vero Beach. This was
the first coin he ever discovered.

DININ a ENT[[RIHNM[ I


Treasure
From page B5
He lost the ship, his checks
bounced, he lost the war
and now we've got Protes-
tants."
Fast forward to 1975.
Captain Bouchlas, who
had been raised as a


sponge-diver in a Greek
household in Tarpon
Springs, had studied the
wreck for a few years and
decided to go public about
his search for the Maravil-

1978 in the form of an
empty eight-foot long iron
box while diving for lob-
sters in 18 feet of water off
the coast of the Bahamas
with friends, the same
friends who had taken to
calling him "Treasure
Bob."
"I knew I found some-
thing," he said.
Unable to move the arti-
fact, he broke off a piece of
the box and brought it
home for testing. He found
it had indeed been cast
several hundred years ago.
Admittedly, he used the
backdoor in obtaining a
permit from the Bahamian
government to search the
waters. He had devised a
concept of using sponges
for aqua monitoring. The
University of Miami even
backed him up, he said. So
he went to the Bahamas
seeking a contract to har-
vest sponges and trans-
plant them in Florida.
Pitching the idea, he said
the plan would bring a
huge legitimate industry
to the Bahamas. He said he
asked for and received a
lease for 25 miles of ocean.
The hunt was on, and, as
the captain already knew,
it was a detective story.
With records he uncov-
ered from the Spanish gov-
ernment, Capt. Bouchlas
learned the crews of five
other Spanish ships
already salvaged the most
important cargo on the
Maravillas not long after it
sank. But those ships are
believed to have been


sunk in a storm. Two of
them have been found.
Three are still out there,
and Capt. Bouchlas says
one of them contains the
statue.
If found, he claims it
would be more significant
than the 1921 discovery of
King Tut's tomb. The ship's
lost treasure is valued at
roughly $2:5 billion,
though the statue is price-
less, he said.
Because of the salvaging
by the Spaniards, the Mar-
avillas contained only a
fraction of the loot it had
sunk with. Regardless,
finding the ship is still a
moment Capt. Bouchlas
said he holds in his spirit
and soul.
"It was like I woke up in
heaven," he said. "Every-
thing I had been studying,
it was a part of me, my
faith, all coming on one
big old ice cream cone, the
best flavor in the world. I
just can't even describe it.
I'm so lucky to have had
the privilege to discover
something that was so
pertinent to history and to
Christianity."
After the find, he flew to
Spain, carrying dies from
the wreck. The dies had
been used to stamp the
ancient bullion, and Capt.
Bouchlas presented them
to King Juan Carlos I. In
return, the king gave him a
commendation and made
him a knight in the Byzan-
tine Order of the Holy
Sepulchre in Malta. The

used in the knighting, as
well as a few artifacts from
the wreck, are now on dis-
play at The Saint Michael
Academy Museum in West
Palm Beach.

The tale grows tall?

This next part is the kind
of big fish story that might
be heard around closing
time at the local VFW.
That's why the captain,
also known as "The
Preacher" and Father Har-
alambos Bouchlas,
seemed hesitant to bring it
up; he knows it will make
him look crazy.
But he gives in and
reveals the rest anyway.
January 24, 1978, two
years before he discovered
the Maravillas, Capt.
Bouchlas believes God, a
meteor and a Russian
satellite pointed to the
wreck of the salvage vessel
carrying the Madonna and
Christ Child statue.
It's well-documented
that on that morning, a
Soviet satellite carrying
radioactive fuel crashed
near the Great Slave Lake
in the Northwest Territo-
ries of Canada. The "killer
satellite," so dubbed for its
purpose of destroying
enemy satellites, was one
of a few dozen that the
Russians launched
between 1963 and 1982.
What's not quite docu-
mented is The Preacher's
version, which has a mete-
or smashing into the satel-
lite, Cosmos 954, scatter-
ing the technology, meteor
bits and radioactive waste

not only in Canada, but
also in the Atlantic off the
coast of Jupiter.
Captain Bouchlas,
author of a 700-page,
three-volume book on his
adventure, is convinced
that the location where the
satellite went into the
water is the resting place
of the salvage vessel, and
that buried deep in the
sand there is a vault; inside
is the statue, he claims.
Aside from not being
able to acquire the neces-
sary permits to salvage the
site, Capt. Bouchlas knows
that several entities would
claim ownership if the
treasure were found. But
he doesn't seem to care
whether or not he ever
finds the statue.
"Regardless of the quest
and the scars and all the
things you go through, the
real issue is the pursuit,"
he said, calling his "a faith
story that wraps up into
reality."
Whatever the story is,'he
has captivated audiences
throughout South Florida
for decades telling it. For
Capt. Bouchlas, that
seems to be the real treas-
ure.
Bob Bouchlas will give a
talk on the Maravillas
expedition at 6 p.m. Tues-
day, June 12, at the Fort
Pierce Branch Library. He's
expected to bring some of
the bounty from the Mar-
avillas with him. The pro-
gram is free and registra-
tion is not required.

Sthat is the missing
link to happiness?
WV It's the heart of
course.
In astrology, we talk about
the physical, mental,
emotional and spiritual
sides of life. These corre-
spond with the different
energies of the body, mind,
heart and soul conscious-
ness.
Each speaks to us with it's
own separate language
when we are open, trusting
and listening.
SThe body speaks through
the five senses: smell, touch,
taste, sight and sound. It is
hungry most of the time.
The mind speaks through
the ego with words and
numbers. It is always
analyzing, trying to figure
things out rationally.
The mind can be related to
our adult selves and is
always going toward the
world and others saying,
"Yes, yes, yes. Give, give,
give."
There is a certain amount
of satisfaction that comes
from giving to family,

Anything in life that makes
us hungry, fearful or sad will
eventually make us toxic or
polluted.
Then disease sets in and we
begin to suffer wherever the
lack is located. Hunger
creates greed when we think
that more moneywill make
us happy.
So we constantly work,
sometimes at two or more
jobs, trying to earn more and
more.
The sad part is that no
matter how much money we
make, it is never enough and
the hunger never goes away.
Then we let the mind get in
the way.
A healthy mind is a loving
mind.
An unhealthy one has let
Sfear, worry and anxiety
replace faith, trust, patience
and surrender to the higher
self and the universal power.
We let our lives become
depositories rather than
channels. Ljfe is meant to
flow, not stagnate.
Ablockage of food in our
intestines creates disease.
Blood that is blocked creates
heart attacks or stroke. Lack
of oxygen in the lungs leads
to cancer and numerous
other health challenges. A
mind frozen in fear creates
any number of mental or
emotional health issues.
Is there a solution to this
kind of toxic life? Absolutely.
When we reach a point of
unhappiness and feeling
stuck, sidetracked or lost,
and want a better way, the
answer is to turn within and
begin following the heart
path. This is the missing link
to happiness. Unhappiness
stems from a sad inner child
Just because we grow up


and become a strong,
responsible adult doesn't
mean that we don't still have
a little boy or girl in us that
needs to be nurtured,
protected and allowed to
play and be happy.
The solution: Say each day,
"I've done my work. It's time
to play."
. Now the link between the
outside and inside selves are
connected.
Nurturing, safety and joy
are the missing ingredients
to happiness. Nurture your
little boy or girl inside, and it
will grow up emotionally
and lead you to your true
eternal self and purpose that
has lived in your soul since
birth.
Isn't this the way you truly
want to live?You can do it.
The real hunger is not for
money or love, it is to
identifyyour true souls'
purpose, bring it out and set
it free. No one can do this
inner work for you but you.
It should be the No. 1
mission and cause in
everyone on earth to do
these things.
Love, peace, health,
prosperity, faith, happiness
and creativity depend on it.
Make it your first mission
and cause and the universe
will greatly reward you today
and for all your future days
to come. Now give the secret
back to others searching and
your life is justified.
You have now become the
missing link.

friends, work and others. But
over a period of time, if more
is going out than is coming
back, our mental gas tank
goes dry and we burn out.
Why? The main reason is
lack of balance.
We spend most of our time
in the outer, physical world
side of life. This is where the
main focus is on making
money, feeding our hungers
and trying to find someone
to love, understand us and
make us happy.

BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
VERO BEACH Sal Des-
ouza named it The World's

a reason: His Vero Beach

last week, standing on the
polished tile in the new

That selection and atten-
tion to detail sets World's
Best Tile apart from its
competitors. Additionally,
Mr. Desouza employs a
skilled team of installers
who have worked alongside
him since he started his
business about 12 years
ago.

YOUTHACIVFIIES& SPORTS


Moss grows to

become state

champion

BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
VERO BEACH Jessica Moss has
been throwing around most of what
she's gotten her hands on for the
past few years.
Fortunately, for everyone's safety,
her activities have been limited to
track and field competitions where
the 14-year-old has become one of
the best in Florida.
Recently, at the middle school
state meet in May, the Oslo Middle
School student took home gold in
the shot put with a throw of 36-9.
She also placed third in the discus
with an 85-2.
"I was really proud of myself,"
Moss said. "I hadn't gotten first
before.
"In the discus, in previous years I
had gotten sixth or seventh. It was
an improvement."
Top finishes are nothing new for
the Vero Beach resident. Competing
with the Vero Striders, Moss has
excelled, especially last year.
She easily qualified for the state
tournament by outlasting her com-
petitors in each event she partici-
pated in the shot put, high jump
and discus.
Competing in the youth division,


Cliff Partlow/staff photographer
Oslo Middle School eighth-grader Jessica Moss, a member of the Vero Striders
Track Club, shows off her first place shot put and third place discuss medals
from the Middle School Track and Field Championships May 5 in Clermont Fl.


Moss was impressive, winning the
shot put with a throw of 33 feet. She
also took home gold in the discus
with a mark of 78-8.
In the high jump, her distance of
3-10 was better than all the rest.
"She's very strong," Striders coach
Theresa Pickett said. "She's done an
excellent job throwing the shot and
discus.
"I'm so proud of her. As long as
she stays focused she is going to be
a blessing."
At the 2006 state meet in Tallahas-
see, Moss continued to shine, plac-
ing in the top four in four different


events.
She took fourth in the discus with
a toss of 72-9 while also just finish-
ing out of the top three in the high
jump with a distance of 4-6.
Moss earned a bronze medal in
the shot put with a throw of 33-7
and topped off her trip with a gold
in the javelin with a mark of 99-10.
"She's really excelled in the discus
and shot put over all," Amy Moss
said. "He best event is the javelin.
She doesn't get to, throw the javelin

Resident hopes to light up the golfing world


BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
VERO BEACH For Vero
Beach resident Fredrika
Hakansson, she hopes her
star continues to shine
even brighter at Nova.:
The former standout at
Vero Beach High School
recently signed to play golf
at Nova Southeastern Uni-
versity after looking at sev-
eral schools, mostly in
Florida.
"I surprised how so
many, people don't.know
about it (Nova)," Hakans-
son said. "I really wanted
to stay in South Florida.
"They had the best golf
program. They were the
best option for me."
Hakansson joins a squad
that was ranked No. 5 in
the nation in Division II,
entering the NCAA South
Regional April 30-May 2 in
Lakeland.
Although the Sharks per-
formed well, they finished
fourth, falling two spots
shy of advancing to the
championships.
Despite the outcome,
Hakansson is looking for-
ward to her freshman sea-
son.
"They have a really great
coach and had a great sea-
son," Hakansson said.
"(Coach) Kevin Marsh is a
nice guy. He is definitely a
key part of the team."
The 17-year old is used
to being around the best.
After enjoying two stellar
seasons on the Vero Beach
golf team, Hakansson felt
she needed a change in
order to adequately com-
pete at the next level.
"I wanted to improve my
golf, get into a good school
and play college golf,"
Hakansson said. "There
really aren't that many kids
in Vero wanting to play
competitive golf,
"There was no one to
play with."
In December 2005,
Hakansson transferred to
the exclusive International
Junior Golf Academy in
Hilton Head Island, S.C.
"It was exciting,"
Hakansson said; "You're
with kids who are doing
what you want to do. You
all have the same goals.
"Everyone knows every-
body. It's really great when
you all have the same
interests.


"The competition is
strong. They are the best
from their country. You
definitely want to work
hard when you're there.
"Everyone wants to be
the best."
While at the academy,
Hakansson's game contin-
ued to improve. At the
FWSGA Girls Junior
Championship in June
2006, she tied for 15th
place with rounds of 81
and 78.
A few months later,
Hakansson had one of the
best performances of her
young career. Returning to
her home state of.Florida,
Hakansson fired a two-


round total of 156 to finish
second in a tournament at
the Marco Island Golf
Club.
In December 2006,
Hakansson competed in a
tournament at the Oyster
Reef Golf Club on Hilton
Head Island. Although she
wasn't as proficient as she
was previously, Hakans-
son had a two-round score
of 160, good enough for
fifth-place finish.
"I'm driving pretty well
right now," Hakansson
said. "Lately, I've putted
well. I'm happy with my
overall game."
Hakansson's affection
for the sport can be traced

back to her younger days,
although golf wasn't her
first love.
"When I was little, my
mom sent me to golf camp
for a week," Hakansson
said. "But I was a tennis
player until the age of 14.
I played on the tennis
team at Vero my freshman
and sophomore years. It
was a lot of fun and a good
experience.
"But I injured my back
and picked up golf again."

does during AAU events."
Amy Moss, Jessica's
mother, coaches her
daughter in the throwing
events. The elder Moss
has been 'able to pass
down insight and knowl-
edge gained from her
days participating in the
sport as well.
"I competed in high
school and college in the
shot put, javelin and dis-
cus," Moss said. "I think
it's great to coach her.
"It's 'really daunting.
She's doing a lot better
than I ever did. She start-
ed a lot earlier. It's great
that they have a program
down her to work with.
"Up there (in Massachu-
setts) there are no pro-
grams until high school.
Down here you can start
as early as 4."
Jessica credits her
mother for sparking an
interest in the sport.
"My mom had done it
before," Moss said. "She
got me started and inter-
ested in it.

"She saw it in me to do
it."
Jessica first got involved
in the sport while a stu-
dent at Osceola Magnet in
Vero Beach.
"I've been doing it for
five years," Moss said. "I
started when I was 9 or 10
and it went from there.
"I started with the 100 m
and went into the throw-
ing events when I was 11
or 12."
The Vero Beach resi-
dent also tackled the long
jump and the hurdles, as
well as .competing in the
pentathlon before decid-
ed to focus on the shot
put, discus and javelin.
"She really wanted to
put her head into some of
these throwing events
and specify in those,"
Amy Moss said.
After seeing her daugh-
ter's performance at the
middle school state meet,
Moss is confident her
charge made the right
decision.
"It was pretty wonder-
ful," Moss said. "It's great
to see her have the pas-
sion to do it and do as
well as she does.
"It blows my mind that
she wants to continue to
do it. I don't want her to
think I'm pushing her to
do it. I don't want to be
one of those little league
moms.
"It's great seeing her out
there with some of the
high school kids and see
them looking to her for
*guidance because she's
been doing it for so long."
For Jessica, the meet
was a culmination of all
hard work and dedica-
tion.
"I've been going to the
state meet for a while,"
Moss said. "Four or five
times.
"I've improved every
year pretty much.. I love
the whole sports atmos-
phere. It's exciting."

from the course, the shift
back to golf was a smooth
one.
"It was an easy transi-
tion," Hakansson said.
"Golf is so addicting. Once
you get into it, you just
can't get out."
While her time at the
academy promises to give
her a leg up on the college
competition, Hakansson
also hopes to benefit from
the diverse courses she
has been able to compete
on.
"Most people that go
play in high school only
play their courses around
town," Hakansson said.
"There are just so many
(that I've played). Just
everywhere.
"I think that will really
help me and give me a big
advantage."
While she prefers to be
playing rather than watch-
ing, Hakansson does enjoy
catching some of golf's
best, whether it be on TV
or in person.
And when it comes to
the upper echelon of golf,
one name always irrevoca-
bly comes up.
"It's always exciting if
TigerWoods is entered in a
tournament," Hakansson
said. "He makes it so excit-
ing.
"His aura. He's so
focused. He's incredible."
Ironically, Hakansson
doesn't watch much golf
on the women's side.


"Good Living" Serves a

Prominent Role in Belisi's

Rise to Fashion Success


Cliff Partlow/staff photographer
Fredrika Hakansson, a former Vero Beach High School golf
standout, recently signed to play golf with Nova South-
eastern University in Fort Lauderdale. She spent some
time at Sandridge Golf Club May 12, getting a private les-


son and working on her chip
"Annika (Sorenstam) is
unbelievable," Hakansson
said. "That's really it.
"They (the women's
side) stillneed somebody."
Could. Hakansson be


that somebody?
"I think about it,"
Hakansson said. "There's
still a lot of work to be
done to get there."


(Syndicated News) Every artist's inspira-
tion is unique. It could be waves crashing
against a shore, a chance encounter with a
stranger on the street in a foreign city. It
could be a series of events or a passing
mood. While the nature of inspiration is
individual, one thing holds true: all artists
are affected by their surroundings. For
Belisi Fashions (www.belisi.com) president
and founder Peter Belisi, inspiration came
from a job that was anything but expected.
"After earning a degree in economics,
landing a job at Merrill Lynch and finally
leaving the corporate world to start an
Internet advertising business of my own, I
fell on hard times," says Belisi. "I took a
bartending job in Palm Beach, Florida to
support my family. Fortunately, the people
I met there led me to bigger ideas and big-
ger dreams."
Serving Palm Beach's wealthiest and
most elite residents on a daily basis, he
developed the idea for a luxury accessories
brand based on the stylish fashions seen on
his high-profile clientele.
"I began emulating the clients I was serv-
ing from behind the bar," Belisi says. "I
took pride in never wearing the same tie
twice. When my co-workers and clients
noticed my. taste in ties and started asking
me for fashion advice, I decided to parlay
-my fashion sense into a business."


Now the owner of Belisi, a luxury lifestyle
brand specializing in Italian silk ties,
scarves and other accessories, this former
bartender has experienced success previ-
ously reserved for.the customers he served.
"The Belisi brand unites the luxury and
prestige of Palm Beach with Italian beauty
and sophistication," says Belisi. "Our prod-
ucts are meant to give people a complete
look, those refined touches that take per-
sonal fashion to a higher level. Starting a
business in the fashion industry always is a
risky venture but fortunately it has paid off
for me."
Never one to forget his past, Belisi donates
a percentage of each sale to those in need.
"Giving back to the community is what
Belisi was created
for in the first
place," Belisi
states.
"I built my busi-
ness on the prin-
ciples of good liv-
ing, and giving
back is a large
part of that. Great
style, quality
accessories, and
community sup-
port truly defines
.the good life."

Every cloud has a
silver lining. Or so
the saying goes.
A couple years ago, after
a trio of hurricanes had
slashed their way through
our neighborhood, we had
little that shined like silver,
much less resemble it.
At the Saints at Port St.
Lucie, however, the
damage from those
hurricanes served as a
catalyst. Plans to renovate
the existing 45-year-old
buildings that comprised
the club's pro shop, cart
barn and restrooms, were
moved to the front burner.
When the city of Port St.
Lucie purchased the
course in 2001, city leaders
knew the club would need
some work.
They started with new
greens and tees, providing
golfers with a first-class
track on which to play.
The smartly applied plan
gave golfers a better
course before turning
attention to the amenities
needed to complete the
project.
On April 12, the most
noticeable amenity of the
project was officially
completed as the ribbon
was cut on a fantastic new
clubhouse. Gone were the
days of cramped offices
and a pro shop that made
a single-car garage look
cavernous.
"We knew the course was
old and needed to be
updated," said head
professional Phil Henry.
"The pro shop used to be


go to get the car after play.
Inside, in addition to a
large pro shop and an
office with windows, Mr.
Henry can enjoy a full-
service bar and grill.
Josef's at the Saints is
open well into the evening
running specials into the
evening, offering a full
menu including steak,
seafood and other
favorites.
The large patio and
restaurant allow the Saints
to host golf outings of
nearly any size. Even non-
golfers can find a relaxing
spot to wait for their golfer
to finish playing. It's
become a favorite spot for
moms and dads to put
their feet up, while their
junior golfers complete
play.
While the new clubhouse
is the gem of the facility, it
by no means marks the
end of the work being
done.
The refreshed look and
feel is taking shape
throughout the golf
course. A tremendous
amount of new landscap-
ing has been added, with
crushed orange-colored
coquina rock being placed
around trees and
flowerbeds. The distinct
contrast in colors from the
green of the grass, to the
orange rock, to the color-
ful flowers adds a nice
touch to the course.
The Saints is on S.E.
Morningside Boulevard in
Port St. Lucie. To schedule
a round, or even your next
meal, call the pro shop at
(772) 398-2901.

in a hallway and my office
was in a closet."
Henry smiled as he gazed
around his spacious new
office and pro shop filled
with the latest golf fash-
ions and accessories.
The smell of grilled
burgers and more filled
the room as we chatted
about the place.
The new digs for Henry,
his staff and golfers alike
are a far cry from those
'early days of the city's
ownership just a few years
ago.
Gone are the drab,
uninviting concrete
bunkers that comprised
the original design.
The new clubhouse is
open, airy, flowing and
relaxing. The clubhouse
was designed to take full
advantage of the trade
winds, allowing everyone
to relax outside on a large
screened porch, even
during the warmest times.
Around the outside,
brick pavers were used on
the driveways and cart
paths surrounding the
new clubhouse. The effect
dresses up the entire
facility.
A covered drive greets
golfers who arrive to drop
off their bag and begin the
day. Even during a sudden
storm, clubs will stay dry

American Red Cross combines efforts to keep


our residents safe during hurricane season 2007


This year, as never before
in the history of our local
American Red Cross
chapter, we are taking extraor-
dinary efforts to make sure our
residents are as prepared as
they can be for what could be
a devastating 2007 hurricane
season.
For the first time ever, we
have combined the resources
of the American Red Cross
Martin County Chapter,
American Red Cross Greater
Palm Beach Chapter, Ameri-
can Red Cross North Treasure
Coast Chapter, American Red
Cross Space Coast Chapter,
the American Red Cross Coast
to Coast Chapter, and Home-
town News to bring you this
official American Red Cross
Hurricane Preparation tabloid.
These combined efforts to
protect and inform our
residents span 15 counties and
impact hundreds of thousands


of our friends and neighbors.
Thanks to the efforts of the
Hometown News, this infor-
mational guide is being
distributed to more of our
residents than has ever been
done before via a newspaper
publication. We send our
special thanks to the Home-
town News for making this
joint effort possible.
For more than 125 years
now, the American Red Cross,
supported by its loyal volun-
teers, has provided relief to
victims of disaster and helped
people prevent, prepare for,
and respond to emergencies
around the world.
We have, unfortunately,
seen first hand the devastating
destruction caused by multi-
ple hurricanes impacting our
region. In each disaster, the
American Red Cross has been
there to give aid and comfort
as soon as conditions were
safe. Our combined Red Cross


Sarah Ruwe


efforts were responsible for
feeding hundreds of thou-
sands of people throughout
east and central Florida. Our
generous donors responded as
well, making sure that the
American Red Cross was there


not only for hurricanes, but for
disasters large and small
throughout the year.
Twenty-seven major storms
brewed in the Atlantic in 2005.
We were lucky in 2006 with
only five hurricanes and five
tropical storms, none of which
severely impact our region.
Predictions for 2007 call for a
very active storm season. That
is why the information in this
tabloid is vitally important to
everyone.
By joining forces, our
combined American Red
Cross chapters are multiplying
our efforts to creating even
higher levels of awareness and
preparedness for hurricane
season 2007.
Please read the information
in this tabloid and use it wisely
to make your hurricane
preparations. Keep this as a
reference; it could help to save
your life or the lives of loved
ones. Pay careful attention to


the lists of materials you will
need to build your own
hurricane kit. Apply the many
tips and Red Cross advice on
your personal safety situa-
tions. Reference the list of Red
Cross hurricane shelters and
evacuation routes to plan how
you will react when hurricane
advisories and warnings are
posted for your area. Remem-
ber, Red Cross hurricane
shelters are to be used as a last
resort.
Our mission is to encourage
communities throughout the
regions we serve to prepare for
disaster before it strikes.
Families who have taken steps
to get ready beforehand, such
as stocking nonperishable
food, water, and other sup-
plies, suffer far less than those
who did not prepare at all or
waited until the last minute.

S Preparedness




SSafety Tips

The City of Vero Beach Utilities is always concerned for your safety and
well being. Here are some important hurricane related tips to help you and
.our family prepare for an approaching storm.
You're Property
i>' Trimirtrees that are NOT near power lines clear and remove debris. Once a hurricane
is announced, trash pickup may be suspended

What You Can Do To Prepare
Purchase bottled water. The American Red Cross recommends 1 gallon of water per
person / per day.
Stock up on non-perishable food, medicine, baby supplies and pet food.

Check Emergency Equipment
> Flashlights, battery operated radios, extension cords, emergency generators and be sure
to buy extra batteries
Install an approved hurricane shutter system over windows and doors or have on hand
alternate coverings such as plywood


Residents urged to


use generators safely


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

During and after Hurricanes
Frances, Jeanne and Wilma, the hum
of generators created a cacophony but
kept lights burning and air condition-
ers, fans and refrigerators running.
While the generators provided much-
needed relief to so many, carbon
monoxide (CO), a bi-product of gener-
ator operation, killed (update num-
ber: seven) people statewide and sent
dozens to area hospitals. Since that
time, thousands of generators were
sold after the 2004 hurricane season,
placing more people in danger of CO
poisoning now more than ever before.
When combustion engines, such as
generators, boats, lawnmowers, and
automobiles, are run in enclosed or
even partially enclosed areas without
sufficient ventilation, the potential for
CO poisoning increases exponentially.
Care also must be taken with charcoal


grilles, as charcoal gives off high quan-
tities of CO when lit. Places where
generators and grills may be used,
such as garages, porches, or even out-
side areas, may present potential haz-
ards if they are upwind of open win-
dows. In these situations, CO gas can
invade homes or buildings and affect
the occupants.
Because CO replaces oxygen in the
blood, it can make people feel sleepy.
Or, if they are asleep, it can prevent
people from waking up.
Symptoms of CO poisoning include:
headache; nausea; fatigue; flu-like
symptoms; impaired vision and coor-
dination; confusion; and a pink tone
to the skin. Did you know that most
people, in the early stages of CO poi-
soning, are incapable of rescuing
themselves or even recognizing the
problem due to the confusion it caus-
es? Ultimately, brain damage or death
may occur.


Before The Storm Approaches


- Monitor official weather bulletins on local TV & radio stations
- Keep extra cash on hand since an extended power outage may prevent you from
withdrawing money from ATM's.
> Review evacuation routes in case you have to evacuate. If you or anyone you know has
special needs incase of an evacuation, call the Indian River County Emergency
Management Office at: 772-567-8000 Ext. 1444 or www.irces.com
- Fill your vehicle's gas tanks. Fill extra gas cans and propane gas for cooking

Electrical Tips
> If someone in your home is dependent on electric-powered life sustaining medical
equipment, review your "family" emergency plan for back-up power or make
arrangements to relocate.
> Before lowering a TV antenna or satellite dish, make sure to turn off and unplug TV
and avoid power lines.
- Turn off all swimming pool pumps and filters.
> Turn off and unplug any unnecessary electrical equipment, especially sensitive electronics.
Please Keep In Mind
For the safety of repair crews, the City of Vero Beach Utilities Department will halt efforts
to restore electric service when winds reach 35 miles per hour.

As soon as the storm has passed, damage assessment to the City's electrical system will be
the first priority. Please be patient. Do not call to report your service is out. The City will
provide service restoration updates to local newspapers, radio and television to keep every-
one informed of our progress.
Do call 772-978-5000 to report power lines that are sparking or obviously unsafe electri-
cal equipment. Encourage everyone to stay away from these hazards.

This publication is also a reminder to
our residents that the American Red
Cross will be there in the time of an
emergency. From fires to hurricane
recovery, the Red Cross is the first to
respond with relief and the last to
leave. This year, as never before, we
urge you to volunteer to help your
friends and neighbors in the aftermath
of a disaster.
With hurricane season drawing near,
volunteers are needed to provide
assistance with the Red Cross. Your
local American Red Cross needs nurses
(LPNs and RNs), damage assessment


team members, family service inter-
viewers, and more. Volunteers must go
through training, so please sign up
now with your local Red Cross Chapter.
Finally, from all of the American Red
Cross chapters participating in this
historical joint venture, we urge you to
maintain your strong financial support
of the American Red Cross. You, the
American people, have been the
solution to previous disasters that hit
our communities. Without your
support, in the aftermath of a disaster

Hurricane center director


urges residents to prepare


Residents should keep
at least a week's worth
of supplies during
hurricane season
BY KIM COTTON
Staff writer
The director of the National Hurri-
cane Center in Miami wants residents
to be prepared this hurricane season.
Bill Proenza wants everyone to have
a plan in place before a hurricane
threatens the area.
"People need to be prepared before
hurricane season," said Mr. Proenza.
"If we get a direct hit with maximum
impact of winds and storm surge, we
don't get a second chance."
Coastal populations continue to
grow, with 53 percent of the popula-
tion living within 50 miles of a coast-
line. That equates to having a large
number of people who may not know
how to ready themselves for a natural
disaster.
"There are a lot of people who have
not experienced a hurricane or tropi-
cal storm, and we're very concerned,"
said Mr. Proenza. "Since the mid-90s,
there have been a higher number of
storms. Just how active we'll be is the


big question,
so people need
to become
aware of what
to do."
Mr. Proenza
became direc-
tor of the
National Hurri-
cane Center on
Jan. 3. Before

Weather Ser-

Mr. Proenza began his 35-year career
in weather with the National Hurri-
cane Center, where he worked as a
hurricane hunter, flying into hurri-
canes to study them.
He has seen his share of hurricanes,
and believes preparation is the key to
surviving a storm.
Mr. Proenza suggests residents
stockpile enough supplies to last for a
week or two without power.
"People should have a plan ahead of
time to make sure their family doesn't
have to venture out and they can stay
safe at home," he said.

Staff writer


The aftermath of hurricanes often
leave thousands of Florida homes
damaged and leave many families in
frenzy.
Whether native Floridians or new-
comers to the area, homeowners
need to know what is needed in
terms of being prepared.
Bob Schlitt Jr., president of Schlitt
Insurances Services, said all homes
should have at least minimum
insurance coverage.
"Minimum coverage for home-
owners should include windstorm
and flood insurance," Mr. Schlitt
said.
"It would cost less to insure a new
home (built since 2002) because
those homes must meet Florida's
new building codes," Mr. Schlitt
said.
Mr. Schlitt also wants renters to be
aware.
"If you rent or lease property, it
should be insured by your land-
lord," he said.
Property other than one's home is
also eligible for insurance.
"If you have special items such as
collectables, fine art or jewelry, it
should be insured with a special
articles policy," Mr. Schlitt said.


Cars and motor homes also
should be insured.
But when searching for insurance,
be aware of scams.
"I would deal with a reputable
insurance agency. I would suggest
insurance agents in the county as
apposed to 1-800 numbers," he said.
People can go online to
www.fldfs.com to ensure an agent
has a license.
Being insured isn't the only meas-
ure homeowners can take to protect
their homes. Shutters are a major
necessity during hurricane season.
"Shutters are only as good as the
person who installs them," said Earl
Forgham, president ofVero Supply.
Mr. Forgham's store provides
accordion shutters, which are top-
of-the-line aluminum panel shut-
ters, and galvanized steel shutters,
which are usually the least expen-
sive.
"Without shutters, homes are at
risk of wind pressure that can cause
a roof to blow off," Mr. Forgham
said.
Shutters can be customized to a
home's specific measurements.
"Different lengths can be cut to
customers exact measurements. We
don't offer just a few sizes," Mr.
Forgham said.

The devastation left in the wake of
the 2004 Hurricane Season was
nowhere more evident on the Treasure
Coast than on local waterways, docks
and marinas. Many homeowners
have yet to see their docks and piers
rebuilt. Many marinas are still operat-
ing at a fraction of capacity due to the
severe damage caused by Hurricanes
Frances and Jeanne.
In an unscientific survey of boaters,
marina operators and others, most
everyone wants information on how
best to prepare for the upcoming 2005
Hurricane Season. Steve Stiglbauer,

ager of Harbortown Marina in Fort

had great recommendations for those
wishing to protect their marine prop-
erties this season.
Stiglbauer, who is a former manager
of the Hyatt Regency Pier 66 Marina in
Fort Lauderdale and the Miami Beach
Marina in South Beach, also navigated
Navy destroyers throughout the world
for the United States Navy and has a
college degree in Oceanography. His
advice comes from first-hand experi-
ence.
According to Stiglbauer, The first
principle is that no yacht is worth risk-
ing your life for. We're talking here
about yachts; trailerable boats can of
course be taken out of harm's way. If
your boat is rack stored and you don't
have a trailer for it, follow the advice
here for the canvas and ensure the


marina or you remove your drain
plugs if you're outside. If you're third
high in an outside stack, ensure the
marina either takes you down to a
lower level rack or ties you securely to
the rack structure.
Stiglbauer warns Treasure Coast resi-
dents, Don't stay with your yacht,
either on land or in the water. Don't
anchor your yacht out; the only way
for any anchored boat to properly
weather a hurricane is for someone to
stay onboard and tend the anchor and
you don't want to stay onboard.
The Navy veteran also warns against
trying to flee the storm. The Navy does
this in powerful warships with very
sophisticated communication sys-
tems. You on the other hand are likely

storms

FOR HOMETOWN NEWS.

Mention the word ERV to anyone
who has survived a hurricane and
they will immediately know the
meaning of the three-letter word that
sounds like your uncle Irv. The word
refers to the American Red Cross
Emergency Response Vehicle (ERV).
When a hurricane or tropical storm
threatens Florida, the American
National Red Cross begins to mobilize
in advance of the system making
landfall. ERV's are strategically placed
where they outside the strike area, yet
close enough to begin arriving in the
impacted zone as soon as conditions
are-safe. Each ERV will bring much
needed food and water to residents
and rescue workers.
ERV operators may make several
trips each day from supply headquar-
ters or kitchens where food and water
are stockpiled or cooked. A typical
distribution run by an ERV crew
involves an early morning arrival to a
supply center. A logistics meeting the
night before has determined specific
routes for each ERV crew. Once at the
supply center, available food and bev-
erage is loaded into back of the ERV
and the crew departs to a designated
neighborhood to begin distribution.
When the ERV arrives at its assigned
neighborhood, a volunteer makes
announcements on a loudspeaker
fixed to the top of the vehicle letting
everyone who needs food and water
to come forward. Depending on the
extent of the damage left by a hurri-

A boat in the Fort Pierce Marina waits
to be hauled out of the water as the
excavations continue to clear and
refurbish the damaged vessels. The
marina took heavy damage from
Hurricane Frances. Work continued at
an accelerated pace to keep the
damages to the water by leaking fuel
to a minimum.

to somehow get caught up in it. The
storm's track can be fickle; you are rel-
atively slow and a tiny speck in com-
parison with the forces you're dealing
with.
A mooring ball, properly sited and
anchored, is a viable consideration.
Some mariners successfully head their
boats up rivers and tie them off on
trees and pilings in the center of a
channel or cove.
Hauling your boat is almost always
the best alternative. With your canvas
completely removed or tightly closed
up, sails removed from sailboats,
properly positioned on chained boat
stands at a yard with a little bit of ele-
vation and some general protection
from the wind that is holy grail, said
Stiglbauer.
Some insurance companies will
reimburse you for the cost of hauling
your boat. Check the wording of your
policy-because it's often paid-only if the
haul out occurs after an official Hurri-
cane Warning is issued. Some yards
offer hurricane haul out guarantees for
a fee; if a yard in your area offers this,
give it careful consideration.

Staying in the water at a marina is a
total throw of the dice. Marinas in
Florida may not force you to leave,
regardless of what their contracts
state; but you are responsible for any
damage your boat does to the piers or
other boats, added Stiglbauer.
Significant damage is often done to
other boats by rogue elephants! They
are a large boat or boats that break
loose and go on a rampage.
Advises Stiglbauer, You should team
up with other people at your marina
and look for absentee owner boats
where no preparations have been
made. Have the marina management
take measures to properly tie those
boats or get yourselves deputized to
do it. These boats often do the most
damage in marinas.
If you stay in the water at a marina,
here are a few other things to consider.
If you're at a floating dock, that's often
the best, if the pier is sturdy enough
for you tie directly to the pier itself and
not any of the fixed pilings. Concrete
floating piers built by Bellingham
Marine for instance, can generally be
tied off to in confidence. Then you go

up and down with the storm surge and
it simplifies your tie-up arrangements.
If you have to tie off to fixed pilings,
you need to create a spider-web. That
is, anticipate the height of the storm
surge and place your lines to allow
your boat to safely rise and fall with
the surge. The higher the expected
surge, the farther out your web has to
go to accommodate your up and down


movement, concluded Stiglbauer.
So review your insurance, figure out
what you're going to do with your boat
if we're threatened by more hurricanes
this season, act when you should, then
get you and yours to safety. Let nature
take its course; and remember that the
positives of boating in Florida vastly
outweigh the inconvenience of these
occasional storms.

Jarvis Emergency Services


is the one-stop shop for


hurricane disaster repairs


BY NATASHA CARTER
Staff writer


The harsh aftermath of 2004 Hurri-
canes Charley, Frances and Jeanne
ironically introduced two Michigan
contractors to the scattered treasures
of Florida's Treasure Coast.
Two years ago Jarvis Emergency Ser-
vices, based out of Vero Beach came
to the rescue of many.
"We had performed hurricane
repairs before in Florida. We were
contacted to help out by contractors
after Charley, Frances and Jeanne,"
said Chris Smith, vice president of
Jarvis Emergency Services.
Jarvis Emergency Services was cre-
ated as an expansion of Jarvis Con-
struction, which has existed for 28
years.
In 1979, William Jarvis created the
Michigan- based company.
"We want to continue to see contin-
uous growth in our company," said
William Jarvis, president of Jarvis
Construction and Jarvis Emergency
Services.
The business is more than prepared
to deal with emergency situations.
Their ability to quickly restore fire-
damaged facilities is from first hand
experience.
"We are a unique business because
we've experienced losses within the
company," Mr. Smith said.
Their main office in Michigan was
lost temporarily to a fire that dam-
aged large amounts of the 25,000
square foot building.
"We lost data from our computers,
but we were up and running within 16
hours," Mr. Jarvis said.
With a sudden emergency, Jarvis
Emergency Services help customers
with the same problem- dealing
with electronic restoration, data
recovery and environmental and air-
quality concerns.
Their offices are staffed 24-hour/7


days a week with Project Manage-
ment Staff that will ensure efficient
and successful service.
"Our emergency services also cover
rain storms, or a car driving through a
garage," Mr. Smith said.
They also prepare estimates for
insurance companies.
The company employs 250 employ-
ees, including 100 in Florida with
headquarters inVero Beach and satel-
lite offices in Hollywood and Lady
Lake.
Customer satisfaction is their num-
ber one goal.
"We are not here for a one time job,
but we want customers to hire us
again in the future," Mr. Jarvis said.
Jarvis Emergency Services provides
expertise, experience, state-of-the-art
equipment and facilities to aid in the
recovery process.
The company's disaster response
team can deliver service within an
hour of a call.
"Based on the location, we can
respond immediately. Our normal
response time from our Vero Beach
office is an hour within a 50 mile
radius," Mr. Smith said.
Aiding in their quick response time
is employees with access to 12 semi-
trucks loaded with equipment unique
to customer's emergency situation.
"Our staff can be housed on-site in
campers to insure prompt service,"
Mr. Jarvis said.
Their 24-hour service includes
board-ups, water extractions, tempo-
rary roof repairs, odor control, and air
monitoring and scrubbing.
Jarvis also offers reconstruction
services, carpet cleaning and rentals.
Rentals include the use of genera-
tors, dehumidifiers, and air scrub-
bers.
"We offer rental equipment for cus-
tomers who choose to do their own
drying or need generators until power

Residents urged to take hurricane precautions


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS


As a hurricane approaches, there
are often feelings of anxiety and
fear. Your American Red Cross
reminds you it is important to know
what to do during a storm watch
and warning, as well as during and
after the hurricane.


When the National Hurricane
Center posts a watch, that means
there is a possible threat of a tropi-
cal storm or hurricane within 36
hours. Although it is a watch, it is
not too early to begin taking hurri-
cane precautions.
Review all hurricane plans.
Check supplies. Continue to watch


the news to stay updated on the
storm's status.
Plan ahead make a decision
early on where you will be riding
out the storm. Remember, a Red
Cross Shelter is a shelter of last
resort.
If you plan to board your house
with shutters or plywood, make


sure you have all the appropriate
tools you will need. Start installing
shutters in difficult places to reach.
S* Fill your cars' gas tanks.
If you have propane gas service,
turn off the valve at the tank. With
natural gas, experts recommend

)See PRECAUTIONS, 23


Insurance
From page 7


Although his business only sells
the material, it also provides a list of
local contractors to help customers
avoid scams.
"We only provide customers with
the names of contractors we've had
good dealings with," Mr. Forgham
said.
Homeowners can also contact
businesses that install, as well as sell
shutters.
Having shutters could possibly
help reduce one's homeowners'
insurance premiums, said Wendy
Jolly, president of J&B Aluminum.
"Lots of insurance companies give


discounts when homeowners pro-
vide a letter stating that their shut-
ters were installed by a licensed
contractor," she said.
The most important thing to
understand is the consequences
that follow from not having protec-
tion against the storm.
"Without shutters your home is in
jeopardy. Windows will be broken by
wind, and the pressure of the wind
could cause your remaining win-
dows to blow out. Protection can
keep that from happening," Mrs.
Jolly said.
After the storm, more than likely


the most-needed service is from
insurance adjusters or home inspec-
tors.
Insurance adjusters will assess
the loss and damage of the proper-
ty.
"We can only work for the
insured," said Harvey Wolfman of
The BCH Group, Public Insurance
Adjusters.
"We get to the site within min-
utes. We have over 25 adjusters.
Inspection depends on damage to
the home. It could take us 10 min-
utes, up to 10 hours, or days
depending on damage," he said.


To be cautious of scams, Mr. Wolf-
man suggests homeowners do their
homework.
"Every public adjuster must have
a license. If you are unsure on
whether your adjuster is licensed,
go to the Florida Department of
Financial Services at
www.fldfs.com," Mr. Wolfman said.
These are just a few tips on the
measures homeowners should take
to protect their homes. For more

Treasure Coast Red Cross chapter was formed in 1917


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

in The North Treasure Coast
Chapter of the American Red Cross
began in St. Lucie County in 1917,
in a house on Seventh Street in Fort
Pierce that had been donated.
The Chapter had a large volunteer
staff, a number of vehicles, and was
very active in the community.
The American Red Cross presence
was seen every year in the annual
Cattleman's Day Parade, participate
ing with a float. The St. Lucie
County Chapter also helped resi-
dents of Okeechobee when the
devastating hurricane of 1926 broke
the levee.
Citizens in Indian River County
organized a storm relief committee


to assist the residents of Dade and
Brevard counties, which were hit by
the same disastrous hurricane in
1926. They provided doctors,
nurses, and volunteer workers, as
well as medical equipment and.
other supplies. The Vero Beach
Press held a fundraiser for the
American Red Cross, and when the
disaster work was complete, local
citizens formed and received a Red
Cross charter of their own on
December 1, 1926.
Meetings were held at the Cham-
ber of Commerce building for the
first 16 years. With support from the
community, the chapter provided
help to fire victims, transportation
for veterans, repaired homes for
elderly people without families,


and provided school books for
indigent children and surgical
operations for those who could not
afford to pay. The American Red
Cross was the only agency in Indian
River County to provide such
emergency assistance to residents
of the county.
During World War II, volunteers
met and re-styled men's shirts into
hospital gowns, as well as clothing
for war victims, especially in
England and Finland. For this, the
chapter received a Certificate of
Appreciation from the British
Embassy. The Chapter was also
busy with Armed Forces Emergency
Services work and provided Red
Cross Motor Corps transportation
for troops stationed at the Vero
Beach Naval Air Station.
A permanent chapter house e inVero
Beach was dedicated on June 12,
1958. The Chapter building was
expanded in 1982 and again in 1999
when a hurricane resistant building
was constructed, containing a 50-
person classroom, offices and an
emergency operations center..
The first hurricane the chapter
encountered was Hurricane Donna in
1960. Shelters were opened with 200
volunteers, and nourishment was
provided to the community. Little
damage was done, but it demonstrat-
ed the value of the Red Cross in
emergencies.


On Labor Day, 1979, Hurricane
David made a direct hit on Indian
River County. Seventeen shelters
were opened, and 2,000 people were
taken care of for three days. Many
people in the shelters were residents
of Miami who had fled the storm,
only to have it follow them to Vero
Beach.
The chapter continues to serve
where and when needed, whether
performing blood pressure screen-
ings, teaching hurricane prepared-
ness, assisting in hazardous material
spills on Interstate 95, or providing
assistance when a family's home
burns down.
The Indian River and St. Lucie
chapters merged in November of
2000. The name changed to the
North Treasure Coast Chapter. It
serves more than 350,000 people in
both counties.

Your American Red Cross North
Treasure Coast Chapter is funded by
local dollars. The chapter receives no
federal, state, or local tax dollars to
support its local operations. To donate
your dollars or time, contact the
American Red Cross North Treasure
Coast Chapter at (772) 562-2549 or

Red Cross prepared for hurricane season


Local chapter gears up
for busiest time of year

BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer

Local hardware stores are stock-
ing up on plywood, residents are
loading the pantry with canned
foods, and generators are becom-
ing high-priority items. All this can
only mean one thing hurricane
season is here.
But while businesses and resi-
dents have just recently begun to
get their hurricane supplies ready,
the North Treasure Coast Chapter
of the Red Cross never stopped
after last year.
"We spend all year preparing,"
said chapter CEO Sarah Ruwe.
"We're really looking for other
organizations who will be willing to
work with us now."
The North Treasure Coast chap-
ter, located in Vero Beach, serves
both Indian River and St. Lucie
counties and is ready to help those
communities in case a hurricane
hits the Treasure Coast in 2007.

Residents need a safe room during a hurricane


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

A storm can unexpectedly intensi-
fy during a hurricane. Your house
may start suffering damage. In these
circumstances, you and your family
will need to gather in a designated
safe room to ride out the storm..
A safe room should be located in


the center of your home. The space,
such as a bathroom, walk-in closet
or hallway, should be spacious
enough to accommodate everyone
and have no windows. It should also
offer a quick egress should it be nec-
essary to get out.
Have a mattress in this room as
well for protection in case part of


the room's structure begins to fail.
However, remain in your safe room
until an "all clear" for your area has
been issued by weather authorities.
The safe room should contain an
emergency supply kit, one that
includes adequate nonperishable
food and water for everyone. A first
aid kit and manual also should be


on hand. The first aid kit should
have assorted sizes of bandages,
sterile gauze pads, adhesive cloth
tape, roller bandages, antibiotic
ointment, aspirin or other pain
reliever, antacid tablets, antiseptic
wipe packages, hydrogen peroxide
for cleaning wounds, rubbing alco-
hol and iodine.


Prepared
From page 15


that a storm will hit this season, Ms.
Ruwe and Red Cross volunteers are
taking no chances.
"I'm not a weather man," said Ms.
Ruwe. "But we're planning for an
active season."
If a big storm hits the area, the
Red Cross will be ready. They have
increased supplies for long-term
displaced families. They now boast
over 200 cots and 100 blankets in
case some families are hit so had by
a storm that they are without
shelter or food for more than a few
days.


Being an organization that relies
heavily on volunteer support, the
Red Cross is also looking for people
to sign up and offer their services
during the six-month period. Ms.
Ruwe said that they currently have
about 250 people signed up, but
that many are only parttime resi-
dents who have returned north for
the summer.
The Red Cross, whose workforce
is 90 percent volunteers, said Ms.
Ruwe, is always looking for more
help. These volunteers will be
trained by the chapter in classes

like shelter operation, damage

classes are free of charge.
"One of the things that people
may not be aware of, is that we're
not (financed) by the government
and not supported by a national
office," Ms. Ruwe said.
Ken Chapin has been volunteer-
ing for the Red Cross off and on for
years, but he recently became more
involved after he saw what the
chapter was able to do for him after
the hurricanes of 2004. Being
supplied food and shelter in his
own time of need spurred Mr:
Chapin to be become a fulltime
volunteer. So far this year, Chapin
has already been on two different
disaster relief assignments.
In February he was based in
Daytona Beach and helped serve
food and offer supplies to victims of
tornadoes in Central Florida. Most
recently, he was in New Jersey
driving emergency response vehi-
cles to areas that were hit by floods.
These experiences have shown
Mr. Chapin the other side of disas-
ters and primed him for the hurri-
cane season.
"People always seem surprised


I*BU~~lu~s*" 7"rr -I .


when we come into neighbor-
hoods," said the Sebastian resident.
"Just the appreciation of the people
is plenty reward."
Mr. Chapin would like to see
more people signing up as volun-
teers for the hurricane season, and
he thinks more would do so if they
fully understood what the Red
Cross does.
Besides serving as a place that
can offer medical attention, one of
the main things the Red Cross can
help disaster victims with is getting
food and cleaning supplies out to
the most devastated neighbor-
hoods.
Volunteers drive emergency
response vehicles and pass out
comfort kits that include tooth-
brushes, razors and other supplies,
along with meals ready to eat.
These emergency vehicles look like
ambulances, but their main pur-
pose is to make sure storm victims
have a warm meal each day.
And as hurricane season
approaches, the need for help
becomes ever more important.
You never know when the big
storm will hit, but you can always
count on the Red Cross to be there.

Residents should plan


now for their pets


BY MATT DEWHURST
Sports writer


If a hurricane lands on the Treasure
Coast this season, many residents will
seek shelter from the storm at nearby
schools and churches. But in both Indi-
an River and St. Lucie County these
same residents will have to find another
home for their pets.
Indian River County does not have
any shelter's that allow pets, and the St.
Lucie County School board voted down
a motion to have some shelters become
pet friendly. The main cause of concern
is a health issue. Pets carry germs and
diseases into shelters and may pass
them along to others.


While it is recommended to keep pets
with you during a storm, if you are
forced into a situation where you
absolutely must have your pets stay
elsewhere, local Humane Societies
might be your best option.
Humane societies, known for their
animal rescuing abilities, do have limit-
ed space for pets in dire need during
emergency times. Most chapters will
accept a pet if a large storm is on its way.
All have limited space however and,
will only accept pets-on a case-by-case
basis. You should also contact and make
arrangements with your local vet.
For more information, contact your
local Human Society chapter

cane out from their homes, an emer-
gency kit should be assembled. The
kits should be stocked with neces-
sary medicines and first aid sup-
plies, as well as non-perishable
foods, bottled water, flashlights and
plenty of batteries.
"We need people to take responsi-
bility for themselves and their fami-
lies," Mr. Proenza said.
An alternative to staying at home
during a hurricane is to evacuate to
either a shelter in the area or leave
town altogether. Mr. Proenza sug-
gests those residents who leave their
homes during a storm should a have
a plan as well.
"If you evacuate, where you go and
what you take is something people
need to thing about," Mr. Proenza
said. "You've got to make prepara-
tions before because we can't have
people on the streets (after a storm)
because it makes the job of recovery
harder. Everything works better if
you're prepared."
The 2007 hurricane season is
expected to be an active one, unlike
last year. The Pacific Ocean was


affected by El Nifio, which mini-
mized land impacts from hurricane
activity in 2006. This season, El Nifio
is gone, which means the area is
once-again vulnerable for a hurri-
cane strike.
"Despite having the second-
warmest sea surface temperatures
since 1930, factor in El Nifio, and we
really had suppressed activity," Mr.
Proenza said. "This year, El Nifio is
gone and we should be back at an
above-average of storms."
But people should prepare, despite
what forecasters may predict.
"People shouldn't focus on the out-
look," Mr. Proenza said. "In reality,
so many factors change. We want
people to be interested in (the out-
look), but at the same time, don't
base decisions on it. Do whatever
you can to protect yourselves and
families."

canes and hurricane preparedness,

Businesses need disaster plan


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS


No business should risk operating
without a disaster plan. According to
the Small Business Administration in
2006 up to 25 percent of small busi-
nesses did not reopen after a major
disaster, like a flood, tornado or hurri-
cane. If you are a business owner, you
should start forming your business
disaster plan now.
When you begin developing your
disaster plan consider how you will


communicate to your employees and
clients, reduce damage to your facility
and operate after the storm. Below
are some business disaster planning
tips from the American Red Cross
Martin County Chapter.

AMERICAN REO o HURRICANE GUIDE '07


Red Cross needs volunteers, donations


BY MATT DONEGAN
Staff writer
In 2004, the North Treasure Coast
Chapter of the American Red Cross
served 1.1 million meals and snacks, pro-
vided financial assistance to 5,500 fami-
lies and helped more than 13,000 resi-
Sdents of St. Lucie and Indian River
counties who ended up in shelters in the
wake of hurricanes Frances and Jeanne.
None of that would have been possible
without volunteers.
The chapter employs only eight paid
staff members to cover a two-county area
comprised of nearly 400,000 people, but
it also has a volunteer corps of 250 com-
munity members.
Those volunteers fill dozens ofjobs, but
more people are still needed.
"We have a number of functions to per-
form in disaster response," said Sharon R.
SRayner, director of emergency services
with the chapter and a former 24-year
Red Cross volunteer. "We don't have vol-
unteers in every one of the categories
that are required to do what we do."
So in a disaster, the Red Cross may have
to call in volunteers from around the


country to work specific jobs. With that
comes transportation, food and lodging
costs.
"It's always better for the organization if
we could have those people in the area
already trained," she said. "Who better
knows a community than the people
who live there?"
Some of the tasks Red Cross volunteers
complete following a disaster include
surveying. Volunteers actually drive up
and down streets to record the level of
damage inflicted. The information is
used in client case work, another volun-
teer aspect. It can also help determine
where food is needed. After a hurricane,
the Red Cross activates arrangements
with caterers to prepare food to be deliv-
ered to residents without utilities.
Some of the better-known functions of
Red Cross volunteers take place in the
shelters, where food, help and hope are
provided. Currently, the Red Cross is in
dire need of volunteers to step up and be
trained as shelter managers.
Further, the Red Cross is seeking more
secondary shelter space in the area and is
looking toward the faith-based commu-
nity. Ms. Rayner said the organization is


encouraging churches to run their own
shelters, with the Red Cross paying the
bills and training members of the congre-
gation as shelter workers.
Of course, training volunteers costs
money, which is something else the Red
Cross is always in need of.
"We don't get money from the govern-
ment," said Sarah Tippet Ruwe, chief
operating officer of the North Treasure
Coast Chapter. "Local chapters support
the national organization, rather than the
otherway around. Our day-to-day opera-
tions are mostly supported through gen-
erous donors and grants."
Currently, the chapter's board of direc-
tors and staff are trying to raise $300,000,
which will be matched by two local
donors.
"We don't do a lot of fundraisers," said
Ms. Ruwe. "Most of our funding comes
from people who believe in our organiza-
tion and mission."
Money raised is used for everything
from community disaster education
training to maintaining and replacing
disaster response supplies, equipment
and vehicles, recruiting and retaining
volunteers and more.


The chapter's annual budget hovers
around $700,000, of which a third goes to
disaster services. That amount is deplet-
ed everyyear.
The budget cycle starts in July. In this
cycle, the funding was used up by
December, mostly due to the large num-
ber of single-family home fires in which
the Red Cross has stepped in to help. The
54 homes burned in this budget cycle
caused the Red Cross to ask for a special
allocation from the UnitedWay.
"We will probably end up 100 percent
over budget this year," Ms. Ruwe said.
And that's in a cycle that didn't bring
any major disasters.
"We got through last year relatively
unscathed," said Ms. Rayner. "We think
people are becoming complacent again.
Our biggest message is 'you still have to
be prepared.' It could be us, and it could
be Katrina. We preach preparedness not
just for hurricanes, but for other disas-
ters, too."

Cross, call (772) 562-2549 in Indian River
County or (772) 461-3950 in St. Lucie
County.

,know' I u'oiild be riding out the total
destruction of my home.
:As I hunkered down in a safe closer
listening to the ten if'ing sound of
the storm, I still felt like everything
would be OK. I had boarded up all
the window's and stocked imy home
with enough wuaret and supplies to


hold me over for afew days.
"All seemed well until I heard the
garage door blow in. Then it seemed
as if the hurricane was inside my

"I withinn seconds the east side of my

ures began blowing out the opening.

Precautions
From page 13
keeping it on, but ask your provider.
When a hurricane warning is
announced, this means the Nation-
al Hurricane Center expects tropical
storm or hurricane conditions in
the area within 24 hours.
Recheck your lists. Make sure
you have at least the minimum
stockpile of items recommended by
your American Red Cross.
Make sure your windows, door
openings, and garage doors are cov-
ered or braced.
Reduce the water in your in-
ground pools by 6-12 inches. Put
extra chlorine in your pool. Discon-
nect and protect your pool pump.
Make sure all unsecured items
around the outside of the house -
tables, chairs, bicycles, hoses, etc.
- are put away. These items can
become flying missiles during the
hurricane.
Clean storm drains and swale of
debris,
Get your safe room ready.
Bring refrigerator and freezer
down to the coldest levels.
Clean your tub with bleach and
rinse well. Fill with water to be used


for flushing and washing.
Fill plastic bottles with water
and freeze them.
Charge cell phone batteries.
Locate water valves, gas valves,
and main electric breaker. Have
instructions on how to turn them
off.
During the storm, make it your
main concern to stay safe. Do not
venture outside, even if the raging
winds and rain calm down. After
the "eye" of storm passes, the
weather will get dramatically worse
very fast. The hurricane will be over
in a few hours; do not endanger
your life or the lives of others by
going outside.
When inside, stay away from win-
dows and doors.
If your pets appear agitated, put
them in their carrier.
If the news reports tell you to go
to your safe room, do it. If you see
that your house is suffering, head to
your safe room immediately and
place a mattress over you.
Only use the phones for emergen-
cies.
The time after the storm should
be used for recovery. You should
not go outside until the news
reports tell you it is safe, even then
proceed with caution. Attempt to


keep your emotions in check; see-
ing things you have worked for
destroyed is overwhelming, but the
important thing to remember is
that you and your family survived.
Remember, the American Red Cross
will be there to help you following a
storm.
The American Red Cross reminds
you to:
Keep children and pets inside a
safe, secure location until you have
had time to examine the damage.
If damage is severe, find a safe
way to get the rest of the family to a
better location. Call your insurance
company. Take pictures of the dam-
age, if any. Talk to FEMA.
When you venture outside, be
attentive of downed power lines.
Listen to the news report to find
out if it is alright to drink the tap
water, if not continue drinking bot-
tled water.
If your power is out, listen to the
news reports on a portable radio to
see if they are reporting major out-
ages. Call the power agency for
updates. Your power could be out
for a several days; be patient.
If you are short of supplies, lis-
ten to the news to find out where
these items will be offered in your
area. Watch for Red Cross emer-


agency response vehicles coming
through your neighborhood with
food and water.
If you are using a generator, fol-
low operating instructions and pre-
cautions.
Never use outdoor grills inside
the house.
Realize finding a contractor is
going to be difficult because they
are going to be in high demand. Be
careful of scams.
Be cautious while working
around your house, taking down
shutters, and picking up debris.
Keep things in perspective. If
your power or A/C is out, know that
it could be stressful. Treat both
neighbors and strangers with
respect; this is a tense time for
everyone and we are all worn out.
The time before and after a hurri-
cane is nerve racking for everyone.
However, there are still precautions
and responsibilities to take in order
to help secure you and your family's
safety. If you need assistance in
planning how to prepare for, survive,
and recover from a hurricane, con-
tact your American Red Cross chap-
ter for brochures and other helpful
information. You may also find
information online at www.red-
cross.org.

Garage
From page 22
Torrents of rain soaked anything that
did not fly out of the hole left by the
roof.
"When Ifinally felt safe to venture
outside I was totally amazed and
dumbfounded.
"My neighbor's home was intact.
"Later, Ifound out the difference
was probably the result of their home
having a hurricane-coded garage
door and my home did not."

By B.J. Denton
For Hometown News

The primary cause for home
destruction is the loss of the roof.
However, the majority of roof loss
is caused by the vacuum effect that
is created when the high winds are
allowed to come inside the house
from windows, entry doors and,
most importantly, through garage
doors.
Once these barriers are broken, the
wind actually "lifts" the roof off
rather than blows it off.
According to the Federal Emer-
gency Management Association,
"The loss of a garage door during a
hurricane can result in the blowout
of the roof and supporting walls. To
meet the new codes, garage doors
must have additional bracing,
heavier gauge track and the neces-
sary hardware to keep them in
place. Homeowners with older
garage doors must realize that those
doors pose a big threat to their
property."
Current homeowners who do not
want to go to the expense of pur-
chasing a new hurricane-coded
door should not despair.
Although today's new wind-coded
garage doors have been engineered
to withstand winds of 130 to 150


mph through the use of channel
strut braces on the panels of the
door, additional side anchor braces
and longer stem rollers, the basic
panels are still pretty much the
same as the pre-code door panels.
This means that most existing
garage doors can be reinforced with
struts, brackets, roller and larger
springs to accomplish the same
wind-resistance that comes on the
new wind-coded doors.
Precision Garage Door Service of
Brevard provides this "reinforce-
ment package" to homeowners for
much less than the cost of purchas-
ing a brand new door.
The garage door industry strongly
recommends that the determination
of whether your current door needs
to be reinforced should come from a
garage door professional.
Adding weight to a garage door by
reinforcing it may cause you to have
a dangerous door.
Remember to include garage door
bracing when preparing for a
hurricane.
As the storm season approaches, it
will be harder to find a company
that is not overly booked for these
services.
Precision Garage door Service,
winner of Brevard's Best Garage
Door Company Award, offers
Brevard County residents a free
hurricane safety inspection to
ensure our neighbors here are ready
for this season's storms. Just call
(321) 639-6157 in Brevard County or
(772) 770-3979 in Indian River
County to schedule one of our
certified techs to do a hurricane
analysis of your door.

Hurricane season words to know


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS


With Hurricane Season 2007 upon
us, the broadcasting airwaves and
neighborhood talk might be filled
with hurricane terms you should
know to make the best plans and
decisions for your and your family.


ERVs
From page 9
(CAC).
Client Assistance Cards are funda-
mentally electronic debit cards. Each
is loaded with funding essential to
meet the assessed needs of the indi-
vidual or family. Everyone who
receives a Client Assistance Card is
trusted to be good stewards of donor's
dollars who make the financial help
possible.
"Traditionally, the American Red
Cross had issued vouchers to those
needing help after a disaster," said


Your American Red Cross stresses
preparation is key to surviving and
recovering from a tropical storm or
hurricane.
A tropical storm is an. organized
cyclone with low pressures and strong

Shelt. "Oftentimes, that created a
stigma or was able to be used only for
a very specific item at a specific store
or location. By using the Red Cross
Client Assistance Card, we have made
it easier for disaster victims to return
to a normal life," Shelt added.
The road to total recovery following
a major hurricane or other disaster is
often slow and painful for the victims
of the disaster. The American Red
Cross has a commitment to being
there when help is needed. With your
continued financial support, the
American Red Cross will always be
there to help.

suppliers. Provide copies to key staff
members.
Share your recovery plans with
employees, customers and suppli-
ers before a storm.
Compile a list of computer
passwords and other critical infor-
mation. Make it a regular office
habit to back up documents and
data for operation.
If you have a voicemail system
at your office, designate one
remote number on which you can
record messages for employees.
Provide the number to all employ-
ees so they can get company
updates.
Arrange for programmable call
forwarding for your main business
liness. Then, if you can't get to
the office, you can call in and
reprogram the phones to ring else-
where.

Reduce potential damage

Bolt tall bookcases or display
cases to wall studs.
Protect breakable items by
securing them to a stand or shelf


using hook-and-loop fasteners, or
put them in a safe place.
Install latches to keep drawers
and cabinets from flying open and
dumping their contents.
* Install shutters that you can
close to protect windows from
damage caused by debris.
Review your insurance policy.
Inventory, document and photo-
graph office space and equip-
ment.

Operations

Begin making plans to resume
business operations as soon as it is
safe after the storm.
If your facility is too damaged
from the storm and unusable,
make plans to operate from anoth-
er site.
Be prepared to work with limit-
ed cash and no power for two
weeks after the storm. Consider
purchasing a generator. Also, stock
the office with emergency supplies.
Take photographs and/or
videotape damage done to the
facility.

thunderstorms. Winds speeds are
between 39-73 miles per hour (mph).
When winds increase past 74 mph,
the tropical storm turns into a hurri-
cane.
A hurricane watch means a hurri-
cane may pose a threat to your area.
During a hurricane watch make any
last minute preparations you need to
be prepared, such as filling up your
gas tanks, obtaining cash and mak-
ing sure your storm shutters are
secure.
If a hurricane watch turns into a
hurricane warning, that means a
hurricane is expected to impact your
area. Do not venture onto roads
when winds become strong.
Remember, cars can not be operated
safely in high winds and water. Also,
debris, fallen trees and live electric
lines may block roadways.
Hurricanes are categorized by
their wind speed in a scale of 1 fi 5.
The scale gives an estimate of how
much damage and flooding can be
expected after the hurricane makes
land fall.
A Category 1 Hurricane is a minimal


hurricane with winds between 74-95
mph. No real damage is expected to
structurally safe buildings. However
there may be damage to mobile homes
and shrubbery.
A hurricane with winds between 96-
110 mph is a Category 2 Hurricane.
There can be some damage to roofing
material, doors and windows. There
can be considerable damage to shrub-
bery and trees might be blown down.
Mobile homes can also suffer consider-
able damage, aw well as signs and
piers.
Category 3 Hurricanes are extensive
hurricanes with winds between 111-
130 mph. There is expected to be dam-
age to residential buildings. Foliage
can blow off shrubbery and trees and
trees may even be blown down. Mobile
homes are expected to be destroyed.
A Category 4 Hurricane has winds
between 131-155 mph. This is an
extreme hurricane where there can be
roof structure failures on residences
and serious damage to doors and
windows. Shrubs, trees and signs are
blown down. Mobile homes may be
completely destroyed.

Grammy's guide to hurricane survival foods


Hometown News'
own Grammy
Guru, Arlene Borg,
offers tips, recipes
for storm days

Unbelievable as it may
seem, hurricane
season is just around
the corer.
Last year was a blessing but
we'll never forget '04 and '05.
Living without all the com-
forts of home is difficult to
impossible.
Maybe this article will give
you some ideas to help you get
through it.
Obey your thirst
We all know you must stock
up on water since no power
means no water.
That internet warning
against freezing bottled water
was untrue. When a hurricane


is coming, pack your freezer
with bottled water or bottles of
water; a full freezer will keep
foods colder longer.
Liquid expands when frozen.
If using glass jars, fill to only 1-
inch from the top.

Sterilize old jugs
Ifyou're like me you have at
least a dozen empty gallons in
the garage just ready to fill with
water.
There is probably some
condensation as well as
harmful bacteria trapped
inside.
Refilling a gallon over and
over is fine as long as months
haven't gone by. If it has, fill the
old gallon jug with hot tap
water to which you have added
1/4 teaspoon chlorine bleach;
let sit for 10 minutes. Shake
vigorously. Pour out water and
wash and rinse several times
until no bubbles appear. Clean
the tops the same way.
When storing the gallons, do

not cover.
Place a towel across the top
and let remaining moisture
evaporate. Dry tops and place
them in a plastic bag. If this is
too much trouble, buy fresh
gallons of water and toss the
old ones.

Feel the heat

Make sure your grill's gas
tank is full and have a back-up


tank just in case.
If charcoal is your choice, buy
early and buy plenty.
Consider buying a portable
tabletop stove that is powered
by cans of butane fuel.
I have one and believe me it
was a life saver.
Save your good pots and
pans. Check out thrift stores or
garage sales for old pots to can
use on your gas or charcoal
grill- -
Keep a lookout for battery
powered fans, they'll prove to
be a life saver.

What is safe to eat

The most perishable foods
are ground meat, seafood,
poultry and pork.
Beef steaks and roasts will
keep longer since they're aged
before you buy them and
grilling will kill bacteria.
If freezer foods are still cold,
use them; if warm, toss.
When hurricane season
approaches, don't stock up on


great buys, buy onlywhat's
necessary.
The way you package foods
for the freezer will determine
how long they will stay cold.
Leave meat in the store
package, wrap in foil, sealing
tightly and then use plastic
wrap or bags. For other meats
that are not pre-packaged,
wrap in butcher paper then foil
and lastly, plastic.
Do the same with-frozen-
vegetables and fruit.

Stocking up
Anything that is made with
vinegar such as salad dressing,
mustard, pickles, catsup can
survive without refrigeration.
I can't believe I'm saying this
but stock up on jarred spaghet-
ti sauce, especially those made
with meat, it's wonderful on
polenta.
Buy skim milk powder and
quarts of milk sold on (non-
) See FOOD, 29

Cooking help
One of the perks of being a
food columnist is the free
books you receive from local
authors.


Daphne Nikolopoulos is the
author of "The Storm Guide,"
which tells how to create
extraordinary meals without
electricity. The book contains
very unusual and delicious
sounding choices. The book is
available at Target and most
bookstores and online at
Amazon.com or at Pineapple
Press, (800) 746-3275.

Dinner ideas

Campfire Stew.
Chicken Curry made with
instant
rice.
Creamed tuna on toast.
Salmon croquettes in a
cheese
sauce.

Additions to meats
Potato pancakes with
applesauce.
Potato croquettes made

does not need refrigeration.

WHITE CLAM SAUCE
Serves 2 to 3
A delicious clam sauce that
can be prepared in less time
than it takes to heat the pasta.
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
4 large cloves garlic
1 bottle (8 ounces) clam juice
1 (10-ounce) can baby clams
1 (7 ounces) canned mush-
rooms, stems and pieces,
reserve liquid
1/4 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Few shakes crushed red
pepper
Several sprigs fresh parsley,
chopped or 1 tablespoon dried
Cooked and heated linguini
or spaghetti
Peel and chop garlic, reserv-
ing half.
NOTE: The longer garlic
cooks, the more flavor it loses;
therefore, we will start our
sauce with half the garlic and
add the rest at the end to get
the flavor we want.


I don't usually use salt since
the clams may be salty.
Taste and add salt if neces-
sary.
Brown garlic lightly, in oil,
remove from heat. Add the
clam juice, juice from baby
clams, liquid from mush-
rooms, oregano and the
peppers.
Return to heat and bring to a
boil.
Coarsely chop mushrooms
and add to sauce. Cover and
cook over low heat.
Ten minutes before serving,
add the clams, remaining
garlic and parsley to the sauce.
Cook for 10 minutes.
Serve on pasta.

RED CLAM SAUCE
Enough for 1 pound of
PASTA
Follow recipe for white clam
sauce.
Reduce oil to 2 tablespoons
and omit mushrooms.
Add one large can, (28
ounces) crushed tomatoes
with added puree and cook as
directed.

more clam juice or water.

Preparing your yard for hurricane season


ith seven major
storms forecasted
V for the season and a
64 percent probability of an
East Coast landfall, the odds
are we will experience some
sort of tropical activity.
With this in mind, it is not too
early to plan your landscape so
that in the event of a storm, you
don't have to scramble to get it
ready. With careful planning,
getting ready for a storm does
not have to be so draining.

Clean up

The first thing you should do
before hurricane season starts
is to trim trees and bushes.
Get rid of any foliage that is
dead or might be hanging over
your house.
If you any dead or weak trees
from last year's storms, cut
them down so they don't have a
chance to do damage this year.

Make a list

Take a tour of your yard and


JOE ZELENAK
The Garden Nook


make a list of items that would
be dangerous to leave lying
around.
This should include patio
furniture, loose garden orna-
ments, small potted plants,
yard torches, arbors and even a
gas grill.
Use this list to know what you
will have to move.
If you have a shed or gazebo,
you might want to add tie
downs to be sure they stay put
and don't wind up in Kansas.


You can start early by limiting
what you keep out in your yard
during the peak months of
August and September.
If you own a swimming pool,
you can throw all your patio
furniture into the pool to help
keep it from traveling across
the state.

Wind-resistant plants

There are many plants you
can use that are attractive and
hold up fairly well during a
hurricane.
Hibiscus, Plumbago, Fire-
cracker plant, Ixoria, and even
my roses seemed to hold up
verywell during our past
hurricanes.
You may also want to consid-
er some native plant varieties
such as Palmetto Bush,
Passionflower, Azalea Bush,
Wax Myrtle, Live Oak and
Southern Magnolia.
Native plants are used to the
high winds that can hit during
hurricane season since they
have been around our area for


so many years.

Salt resistant varieties

If you live near the ocean,
planting becomes more of a
challenge because you need to
have plants that resistant to salt
spray.
Remember that a hurricane
can carry the ocean mist far
inland with its 70-plus mile per
hour winds.
Plant varieties such as
Indian Hawthorne, Saw
Palmetto, Confederate Jasmine,
Society Garlic, Daylily, Pittispo-
rum, Oleander and Mexican
Petunia -do very well in areas
where salt spray can be a
problem.
Gardenia plants also can fare
well with less then 25 percent
damage and full recovery after
one growing season.

Tree measurements

When planning your land-
scape, if you are going to plant
large trees, you should always


keep the distance from the tree
to the house greater then the
height of the tree when it is full
grown.
If you have any trees that are
weak or leaning, either have
them secured or remove them
if they are within striking
distance of your home.
Also, look for exposed roots.
If the soil has been washed
away from the roots of your
trees, the root structure maybe
weakened and allow the tree to
topple easily. Fill in these areas
with soil back to the original
ground level.
As you can see, with a few
common-sense tips and some
good planning, you can have
an attractive and safe yard this
hurricane season.

and hurricane updates, visit
