Crist, Cabinet will have final say on land swap

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
- Overturning a land swap
between regional water
managers and a local
ranching family will be left
to Gov. Charlie Crist and
members of the state Cabi-
net, who are set to rule on
the deal next month.

District swapped 1,265
acres of public land with
the Corrigan ranching fam-
ily. In return, the water dis-
trict received 463 acres of
the Corrigans' land.
The action prompted an
outcry from the County
Commission and environ-
mentalists who want the
land preserved.
Both the County Com-
mission and Pelican Island
Audubon Society filed


appeals with the state Land
and Water Adjudicatory
Commission, which is com-
prised of the governor and
three elected Cabinet offi-
cers.
"If they want to pay
attention to local concerns,
they would certainly hear
the appeal," Pelican Island
Audubon Society President
Richard Baker said.
In 1999, the water district
purchased the disputed


land, known as Sand Lakes,
for preservation. Members
of the Corrigan family said
water district activity
caused flooding on their
land and threatened to sue,
leading to the land swap.
"I'm cautiously opti-
mistic that the governor will
recognize that we have
some valid points," County
Commissioner Peter
O'Bryan said last week. "It
sets a bad precedent to use


conservation lands to settle
lawsuits."
Water district ecologists
determined the parcel was
no longer environmentally
significant, and the water
district governing board
approved the land swap in a
7-2 vote.
Stan Niego, senior assis-
tant general counsel for the
water district, said it was

Demolition date


for old county


building nears


BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
- At the old County
Administration Building,
which elected officials and
workers abandoned this
summer for a $45 million
complex across the street,
the end is near.
Crews ready furniture to
be shipped to other county
offices, work trucks fill
parking spaces once
reserved for county com-
missioners and, later this
month, teams will begin
tearing down the 55-year-
old structure.
In September, from the
comfort of its new chamber,
the County Commission
approved a.$460,000 con-
tract with Cross Environ-
mental Services to demol-
ish the former seat of
Indian River County gov-/
ernment.
"The building is old," said
Tom Frame, county general
services director. "It's got a
lot of environmental prob-
lems."
Restoration, even if the
County Commission had
requested it, "is beyond
being economically feasible
at this point,"- Mr. Frame
said.
Crystal Springs-based
Cross Environmental Ser-
vices plans to recycle con-
crete, glass and steel during
the demolition or about
75 percent of construction
materials.
Demolition should take
between 45 and 60 days,
Mr. Frame said.
In the meantime, workers


are packing up book-
shelves', chairs and desks
for shipment to the Health
Department, Sheriff's
Office and other destina-
tions.
Once the County Admin-
istration Building is gone,
the five-acre site will be left
as green space, Mr. Frame
said. The parking .lot will
serve as spillover parking
for the new County Admin-
istration Complex and
nearby school district
offices.'
Additional office space
could be built on the site, "if
the county should ever
need it," Mr. Frame -.said,
adding that such an expan-
siop is probably 30 years
away. ,
The school district build-
ing, which sits adjacent to
the County Administration
Building, should be undis-
turbed during the demoli-
tion, Mr. Frame said.
Workers are severing util-
ities connections between
the two structures. Follow-
ing the demolition, a stucco
facade on the school dis-
trict headquarters will need
to be restored, according to
county documents.
The old County Adminis-
tration Building opened in
1952 as the 35-bed Indian
River Memorial Hospital.
When the hospital left the
25th Street location in the
late 1970s, the building was
renovated for county and
school district offices.
But renovations could
not keep pace with growth,
and the building began to
fray. Workers worried about

Hotel could anchor new


airport development


BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
VERO BEACH An
upscale hotel, restaurants
and shops could rise near
Dodgertown and the Vero
Beach Municipal Airport by
2009, a pair of developers
announced last week.
The 125-room hotel will
anchor Airport Landing, as
the proposed development
is called, and provide need-
ed meeting space, said Jed
Heller, president of The
Providence Group.
The Duxbury, Mass.-based
company will develop the
site alongside Bridgeton
Properties, which is based
inVero Beach.
The developers plan to
announce the hotel fran-
chise by next month. Con-
struction for the entire com-
plex could last 18 months.
Mr. Heller said his compa-


ny has been "approached by
several of the major
brands."
Helene Caseltine, eco-
nomic development direc-
tor for the Indian River
County Chamber of Com-
merce, said more hotel
rooms and meeting space
could help attract conven-
tions and corporate board
meetings. -
"There's a shortage of
meeting space in the area of
the caliber that we're bring-
ing," Mr. Heller said.
In addition to conference
facilities, the center will
include a bank, offices and
retail space. Mr. Heller said
both local and national
retailers have expressed
interest in leasing space at
Airport Landing.
Opening some of the pro-
posed businesses will hinge
on the Aviation Boulevard
widening project, which will


increase the road to four
lanes from U.S. 1 to 43ra
Avenue. The project is set to
begin next year.
Bridgeton Properties
operates the Airport Busi-
ness Center, near the pro-
posed Airport Landing site.
Other hotel offerings are
also set to open in Vero
Beach next year.
In January, pop star Gloria
Estefan and her husband,
Emilio, are scheduled to
open Costa d'Este, a 94-
room luxury resort on
Ocean Drive.
Developers plan to break
ground on an 85-room
SpringHill Suites by Mar-
riott this fall, building near
the Grand Harbor develop-
ment.
It will be the first Marriott
hotel in Indian River Coun-
ty. The new hotel is sched-
uled to open by December
2008.

attorney to draft its appeal,
Mr. Baker said.
Appeals must be heard
within 60 days of filing. Mr.
Crist and the Cabinet are
scheduled to meet twice
more this month.
Mr. Baker said the case
has drawn the attention of
other environmental
groups, including Audubon
of Florida.
Charles Lee, director of
advocacy for Audubon of
Florida, said the land should
be preserved.
"Nothing has changed
about this land," he said.
Advocates hope that Mr.
Crist, a Republican who has
emphasized environmental
issues, will vote in favor of
the decision.
Anthony DeLuise, a
spokesman for the gover-
nor, said the appeal had not
reached the governor by late
last week. But he said the
governor, who was speaking.
in New York at a climate
change forum the same day,


"has made it clear that the
health of Florida's environ-
ment must be protected."
"As the governor has said
many times, our environ-
ment is inextricably linked
to our economy and our
quality of life," Mr. DeLuise
said.
County Commissioner
Wesley Davis, whose district
includes the Sand Lakes
parcel, said the appeal
amounted to "testing the
waters" with the new state
administration.
"I feel like we have to try,"
he said.
Alongside the governor,
the Land and Water Adjudi-
catory Commission consists
of Attorney General Bill
McCollum, Chief Financial
Officer Alex Sink and Com-
missioner of Agriculture
and Consumer Services
Charles Bronson.
"{The appeal is] going to
have to convince the gover-
nor and two others'" Mr. Lee
said.

Vero Beach bank buries time capsule


Capsule will be
uncovered and
opened in 2057
BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer

VERO BEACH Even if
the book is long out of print,
citizens who crack open a
city time capsule in 2057 will
have a first edition of
"Nature Girl," signed by the
author.
"Nature Girl," the 2006
novel by Vero Beach author
Carl Hiaasen, and dozens of
other items were sealed in a
stainless-steel box last week,
and entombed for the next
half-century.
Inside, there are promo-
tional materials from Vero
Beach-based Piper Aircraft,


and a "We [heart] Piper"
bumper sticker, part of the
campaign to retain the air-
craft maker as it considers
offers from Albuquerque,
N.M., and Oklahoma City.
The time capsule was
envisioned as a way to mark
the opening of the new Indi-
an River National Bank
headquarters on 20th Place.
Employees of the Vero
Beach-based bank moved
into the landmark structure
in July.
IRNB marketing director
Karl Steene and other exec-
utives buried the capsule
during a Sept. 27 ceremony,
sealing it beneath bricks and
a bronze plaque.
Workers closed up the
shallow hole the next day.
"A lot of us white hairs and
AARP members won't be
around to see how it looks,"


joked Andy Beindorf, presi-
dent and CEO of IRNB.
Bank officials spent nine
months gathering items
from community members,
Mr. Steene said.
Fifth-graders at Osceola
Magnet School wrote essays
about life in 2007, and
offered predictions about
2057. Now, sealed in acid-
free paper, their essays are
buried alongside a 2007 edi-
tion of the Vero Beach High
School yearbook.
The Los Angeles Dodgers,
which are set to train in Vero
Beach for a final time next
spring, sent an autographed
baseball to mark the team's
six-decade relationship with
the city.
City manager Jim Gab-
bard donated the pair of
brass stars he wore on his
collar during his 19-year


tenure as chief of the Vero
Beach Police Department.
A ballpoint pen, coffee
mug and tote bag, each
emblazoned with the city
seal, were included, along-
side a photograph of the
City Council.
There is other municipal
memorabilia as well.
A guide to the Florida
Sunshine Law for public
officials and a brochure
detailing city lighting fix-
tures were interred.
Beachland Elementary
donated photographs com-
memorating its 50th
anniversary, which the
school celebrated earlier
this year.
And, fitting the capsule's
final resting place, there's
money: A 2007 George
Washington dollar coin and
two 2004 Florida quarters.

Unemployment rate climbs over August '06

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY A slowdown in the housing
market and other factors have pushed the percentage of
jobless workers higher than it was during the same peri-
od a year ago.
In Indian River County, the unemployment rate rose to
6.7 percent in August, which means about 4,000 workers
were jobless during that time period. In August 2006, that
number stood at 5.1 percent.
Statewide, Indian River County has the third-worst
unemployment rate.
Only St. Lucie County, which has 6.8 percent unem-
ployment, and rural Hendry County, which reported 9.9
percent unemployment, have higher jobless rates.
Across Florida, this is the highest the unemployment
rate has climbed since April 2005.

Former Vero Beach Police
officer tapped as FHP chief

VERO BEACH A law enforcement officer who began
his career with the Vero Beach Police Department more
than three decades ago is now the interim head of the
Florida Highway Patrol.
FHP Lt. Col. John Czernis, 53, began his career with the
Vero Beach Police in 1974, then left to join FHP in 1977.
At FHP, he replaces Col. Christopher Knight, who
resigned last month amid an investigation.
Since June 2003, Mr. Czernis has served as deputy
director of special operations for the statewide law
enforcement agency.
When he first joined the force, he was a trooper in
Monroe and Orange counties, and later a traffic homicide
investigator in Orlando.
During his 30-year tenure with FHP, he has held
numerous other posts.
"Col. Czernis' vast and varied work experience in a
multitude of patrol positions combined with his strong
education will serve our agency well," FHP said in a press
release.
His predecessor, Mr. Knight, stepped down after a six-
month investigation that discovered he had falsified a
memo regarding complaints about the highest-ranking
female officer in FHP. The woman was later fired.

Bail set at $900K for man
charged with attempted rape

VERO BEACH An 18-year-old Vero Beach man is
being held on $900,000 bond after investigators said he
broke into a Vero Beach woman's home and attempted to
rape her.
Peter S. Ruma, of 826 Reef Road, Vero Beach, was
charged with attempted sexual battery on a physically
impaired person and burglary for the Sept. 18 incident.
The woman told the Indian River County Sheriff's
Office that she awoke early Tuesday with her pants
around her ankles. Her boyfriend was fightingwith a
stranger in the living room.
According to the arrest report, Mr. Ruma was discov-
ered in the home at about 2 a.m., when the boyfriend
found him hiding near the sleeping woman.
The boyfriend wrestled with Mr. Ruma while the
woman called 911. Deputies later found footprints and
signs of a break-in near the garage.

Is IT MINE ?
I buy lots of jewelry from
the public. To do so I must
fill out a police report when
purchasing jewelry from
the public. We must ask
whose ring (or whatever
they are selling) it is. We do
this to determine whether it
is their property to sell or if
they have authorization to
sell it. And I frequently
hear something that dis-
turbs me. One of them is
from ladies that have been
engaged but have since
broken off the engage-
ment. They have given the
engagement ring back. The
second thing I hear is that
the man brings the ring in
to sell and he tells me he
"took" it back.
Well here's the real deal.
If you receive an engage-
ment ring, it's yours. You
can wear it, sell it, or do
anything you want with it.
It's yours. If he "takes" it
back without your authori-
zation, it is still yours and
you can take whatever
legal means you like to get
it back. Therefore if he tries
to sell it to me or any other
jeweler it is not his to sell.
This is straight from. the
detective that is our repre-
sentative from the sheriff's
office.

Man facing cruelty
charges had record of
abuse
WINTER BEACH A
local man jailed on animal
cruelty charges was not sup-
posed to own dogs, accord-'
ing to Indian River County.
Sheriff's Office records.
Robert Dillon Sheltra, 20,
faces charges for violation of
probation for a misde-
meanor offense and two
counts each of cruelty to
animals, abandonment of
animals and unlawful con-
finement of animals follow-
ing his Sept.14 arrest.
Mr. Sheltra, of 6625 49th
St., Winter Beach, is being
held at the Indian River.
County Jail on $30,000
bond.
In the Sept. 14 arrest
report, an Animal Control
officer wrote that a box
holding two dogs and a wild
pig had fallen from the back
of Mr. Sheltra's pickup truck
into the parking lot of the
Burger King at State Road 60
and 58th Avenue.
According to the report,
witnesses told the officer'
that Mr. Sheltra threw the.
box into the truck bed and
lifted a dog by the neck.
This was not the first run-
in between law enforcement
officers and Mr. Sheltra.
Records show that Mr.
Sheltra was sentenced to 60
days in jail last October on'
nine counts each of cruelty:
to animals and unlawful
confinement of animals. As.
a condition of his yearlong
, probation, he wasiforbidden
from owning animals.
Deputies initially arrested
Mr. Sheltra for violating his'
probation.

IRC Habitat wins top honor for second year


Affiliate named tops out of 600 suburban groups


BY NATASHA CARTER
Staff writer
INDIAN RIVER COUNTY
- Winning a top honor is
for the second year in a row
is a blessing for officials at
the Indian River Habitat for
Humanity affiliate. .
The affiliate was recog-
nized for its work in con-
structing homes locally
and for donatingmoney for
projects overseas.


The honor has three cat-
egories rural, urban and
suburban. The organiza-
tion was chosen out of 600
suburban affiliates.
Habitat for Humanity has
1,850 affiliates worldwide,
over 1,600 nationwide and
63 in Florida.
"It's .a great honor to
receive once and to be cho-
sen again is great," said
Andy Bowler, CEO of Indi-
an, River Habitat for


Humanity.
In 2005, the, chapter
received the honor for
building 25 homes and
donating $238,000 over-
seas. For 2006, they built
the same amount of
homes, but donated
$48,000 more than 2005.
"We plan to build 25 to 30
homes for 2007," Mr.
Bowler said.
In May of 1990, the local
affiliate was formed. Indian


River Habitat is a Christian
ministry that works in part-
nership with people build-
ing homes and communi-
ties.
The organization built its
first house in Gifford for
the Pressley family in 1992.
Habitat for Humanity has
continued over the years to
provide low-cost housing
in the Gifford community,
and has plans of doing the
same in the communities
of Oslo Park, Wabasso, and
Fellsmere.


The Oslo Park communi-
ty Grace Groves will be
done in a year. The water,
sewer and roads are
already in place.
By January, Habitat for
Humanity will start infra-
structure for the building
of 68 homes for the
Fellsmere community.
"We will begin laying the
infrastructure over the
next three months," Mr.
Bowler said.
The affiliate is scheduled
to receive its award at the


Pioneers in Excellence cer-
emony during the Habitat
for Humanity Internation-
al Convention in New
Orleans.
"The spirit of generosity
of this community is amaz-
ing. God has touched the
hearts of numerous people
who have volunteered
their time, talent and
treasures for people in
need of decent homes. We
are all working for the
common good," Mr.
Bowler said.

Golf course conditions

The owner of Vista Meadows said that there are solu-
tions to cleaning up the deplorable conditions at the golf
course, "but they require give and take from the home-
owners."
What Chuck Sullivan Jr., a local attorney who is one of
the principals in the family-owned course, really meant
was that he wants the homeowners to do the giving, and
the Sullivans will do the taking.
They picked up the course by buying the foreclosure
rights last December when the course was in great condi-
tion for $2,040,000.
Now, they want to make a million dollar profit when the
course is in awful shape.
Why don't they clean up the place and be a little less
greedy?
Unconscionable people

I live in Kentucky, bat have a condo in Vista Gardens.
In my opinion the Sullivans are blatant opportunists.
They apparently went through the motion of buying a
golf course, but had the real objective of wrecking it, and
building more condos.
Why else would they just close a busy course? Lots of
people played here.
To me they are unconscionable people who don't mind
wrecking the lives and property values of existing condo
owners to further their own gains.
Now they plead poor,, and say they can't keep the weeds
mowed.
They may well be part of the "good old boys" of Vero
Beach, and may be able to play their game for a long time
given they are lawyers and know their way around.
But the recent downturn in real estate sales may put a
cramp in their style.
I hope so.


More on Vista Meadows

How can Charles Sullivan claim that there was never
any guarantee that Vista Meadows would remain a golf
course forever?
Who's he trying to bulldoze?

Action needed

I am a homeowner in Vista Gardens.
The owner of the Vista Meadows Golf Course has left it


in deplorable condition due to his failure to properly
maintain it.
If this condition continues, it will result in a decrease in'
the value of the individual condos of between 25 percent
and 50 percent.
The county needs to take action to enforce the current
law, and amend that law to strengthen the requirements.
He's been around the block and should know that the
original developer, Vista Properties, had a common plan,
of development in mind when it developed all the 2,353
home sites surrounding the golf course.
All ,the promotional brochures and sales advertising
touted the Vistas as "a golf course community."
And then, to ensure that the property would remain a
golf course, Vista Properties recorded a protective
covenant in 1989, that ran in perpetuity that promised the
land "shall be continuously operated as a 27 hole golf
course."
And to further ensure that the property would not be
broken up into further development, the covenant went
on to state: "The land shall...be held, sold, conveyed,
leased, mortgaged and otherwise dealt with only as a sin-
gle parcel; and no portion thereof shall.. .* separately
held, sold, conveyed, leased, mortgaged or otherwise
dealt with."
Being a lawyer, Mr. Sullivan should realize that no man
is above the law.
County officials should waste no more time, and make
him clean up the code violations.

Vista Gardens Golf course

The term lawyer is somebody qualified to practice law.
The new owners of the Vista Gardens Golf Course
should take note, and uphold the law.


Response from
Charles A. Sullivan Jr.:

There is a misconception that the current owners of the golf
course at Vista Royale bought the golf course, and then closed
the facility.
That is not true. The current owners, Vista Golf, LLC,
acquired the property through a mortgage foreclosure
because the prior owner, Vista Meadows, had shut the course
down, abandoned the property, and stopped paying the
mortgages.
When Vista Golf, LLC, finally acquired possession of the
property it had been closed for several months.
Vista Golf, LLC is not in the golf course business and cannot
operate the facility, but they did lease the course to a compa-
ny from Stuart, which reopened the course for a few months.
Prior to the expiration of the lease, that company aban-
doned the property because they could not operate the course
at a profit.
The Vista Royale golf course has been shut down several
times now, always because the course does not make a profit.
That is, the expense of operating the golf course exceeds the
income.
We agree that the course is a valuable asset to the condo-
minium owners of Vista Royale.
We have offered to sell them the golf course at our cost, but
they have refused.
We have offered to share the expenses of maintaining the
property, but they have refused.
In fact, it is our understanding that every prior owner has
offered to sell the golf course to the homeowners at Vista
Royale, but they have refused.
It is natural that the owners at Vista Royale would want the

Letters


Are we being patronized?
What happened?
When I heard that the owners of Vista Meadows Golf Course
would be fined $250 per day for not maintaining the weed-
infested ponds that interfere with storm water management, I
expected this to happen. It was supposed to, begin on Sept. 25.
Guess what? Nothing has happened, and now the elected
officials they have given the owners until Oct. 15 to do "weed
treatment," with no mention of a fine.
I do not find it hard to believe that Sullivan and Sullivan who
own the unkempt golf course are given special privileges, since
they are both long- time residents ofVero Beach, and did I men-
tion, they are attorneys.
Are our elected officials just patronizing Vista Gardens and
Vista Royal?
I wonder!
CathyPerrotta
Vero Beach

Step up, fix the problem
I am writing about the issue of the deplorable conditions at
the golf course at Vista Meadows and Vista Gardens that is not
being maintained.
We live in Vista Gardens and chose it, as did most of our
neighbors, because of the beauty of its lush grounds.
W ve sacrificed a lot in our lives to finally be in this place.
To have this situation be allowed to continue is a gross injus-
tice to all of us registered voters, and we won't be soon forgetting
it.
We have rights, and demand that the city we now live in do
something to make these slum-lawyers remedy the present sit-
uation.
They own the property, and have done virtually nothing to
maintain it since purchasing it.
They need to do at least routine maintenance so that our
quality of life is not so drastically affected.
Would any of you want your parents to have to look out at this
mess? I think not.
We have every right to expect these owners to do the mainte-


nance that everyone else is expected to do on all of their proper-
ties required by code enforcement.
We have spent a lifetime doing all the right things to be able to
enjoy the end of our lives in serenity and peace.
Imagine what this fine city would look like if we all took their
attitude and just let our properties go.
Come on city and county government, do what you were
elected to do and help us force them to step up and fix this.

Golf course deterioration
This is a plea for everyone who lives in Indian River County,
especially those who live inVero Beach.
Please come and take a look at the serious deterioration of
our golf course, which has been abandoned by the owner of
same.
It is a disgrace that should not be tolerated by the county.
George Lye
Vero Beach

Support is needed
We live inVista Gardens.
We are working very hard to get Vista Meadows Golf Course
owners to restore the course both for our benefit, the benefit of
the city, and the benefit of the wildlife and ecology of the area.
I am concerned that the disarray may promote disease to
both humans and animals.
We need your support.

Fran and Bill Sullivan
Vero Beach

Impose fines for noncompliance
The Indian River County Code Enforcement office needs to
aggressively enforce the codes governing storm water ponds.
In particular, I am talking about the ponds located on the golf


course known as Vista Meadows on Route 1 in the area around
the Vista Gardens and Vista Royale condominium complexes
and behind McKee's Botanical Gardens.
These ponds are not being maintained by the owners ofVista
Meadows, resulting in clogged ponds.
That is against code, and punishable by a fine of $250 per day.
There are good reasons why the code exists, all of which are
related to protecting and beautifying the environment.
Because of the clogged conditions the ponds are stagnant
and shrinking, fish are dying, and other wildlife that depend on
these ponds for survival are on the move to populated areas.
Snakes and alligators have already been seen on the side-
walks ofVista Gardens.
It won't be long before they will be seen in numbers at
McKee's Botanical Gardens as well.
The county gave the owners until Tuesday, Sept. 25 to clean
up. .
If that is not.accomplished, I pray that the Code Enforcers'do
their job and immediately follow through with the fines.

Ron Renaldo
Vero Beach

Possible solution for Vista Gardens
I am proposing a win- win situation for the community, the
local government, the golf course company and perhaps a new
partner.
Obviously, I am very concerned about the deplorable state of
the golf course.
My husband and I just sold our house in Baltimore and
invested in our future retirement home at Vista Gardens.
We currently live and work in Vietnam, and look forward to
retiring at Vista Gardens in 2010.
My mother-in-law currently resides there, and enjoys the
community of friends she has made over the last 25 years.
We have stayed at Vista Gardens over the years and have
always cherished the green space, the landscaping, the golf
course, the community andVero Beach.
I have always been impressed that so many community
members participate in various roles, and follow through with
their responsibilities to maintain the community organization

PRAIING... SERIOUSLY!

The old County Administration Building, scheduled for demolition later this month, opened in 1952 as Indian River
Memorial Hospital. When the hospital outgrew the space, the building was renovated to become the seat of Indian
River County government.


After serving the citizens of
Indian River County, once
as a hospital, and later as
the Indian River County
Administration building,
the building will be
demolished.

Demolition
From page Al
mold, and residents often
-' waited in the hallway out-
side the too-small County
Commission chamber.
In the 1990s, officials
began socking away
money to build the $45
million County Adminis-
"tration Complex. The new
two-building campus
opened in August. Employ-


ees said the new buildings
were a sharp contrast to
the old County Adminis-
tration building, where
offices were often cramped
and the air carried the tang
of mold.
The new County Admin-
istration Complex is part of
a $56 millionreffort to con-
struct new county offices,


including a $4 million
headquarters for the
Supervisor of Elections
Office and a $6 million
Emergency Operations
Center.
Initial plans called for
the Emergency Operations
Center to be built at the
county complex on 25th
Street. Following a state


mandate that required the
emergency center to with-
stand 200 mph winds, the
county relocated the
Emergency Operations
Center to 43rd Avenue.
The move left 23,000-
square feet of space open
for expansion at the Coun-
ty Administration Com-
plex.


Letters

and grounds.
I assume the local govern-
ment officials and the chief
executive officer of the golf
company are also key stake-
holders, not only because
Vista Gardens has real estate
value, but because they also
respect the Vista Garden com-
munity and want to support a
just and sustainable solution.
The community has
already demonstrated in the
long term what an afford-
able, safe, participatory and
scenic retirement communi-
ty can provide for senior citi-
zens.
I would suggest that the
golf course chief executive
officer, in close collaboration
with the local government,
explore other options for sus-
taining a beautiful 27 hole
golf course so they, too, can
fulfill their critical roles and
responsibilities.
For example, the golf
course company can offset
expenses by initiating a part-
nership with a Florida com-
munity college or private
vocational school or a local
"Green" company that knows
turf management.
The golf course company
could provide career intern-
ships for young men and
women interested in turf
management, promoting
environmentally sound prac-
tices that ensure a "Green"
golf course.
In conclusion, I am very
grateful for all the communi-
ty members who have advo-
cated on our behalf locally to
ensure a just solution is
reached for Vista Gardens.

Environmental slum
I am a Vista Garden prop-
erty owner.
Vista Meadows Golf
Course in Vero Beach has
been totally neglected, lead-
ing to what was once a pris-
tine visible statement of the
quality of life in Vero Beach
into one of diminishing
value.
Something must be done.
Under the present private
ownership, the property has
disintegrated into a slovenly
mosquito-infested swamp
of overgrown weeds and pol-
luted waters.
Indeed, it is an environ-
mental slum.
Robert Biller, a scholar at
University of California, Los


Angeles has written the fol-
lowing:
"We live in times that are
like a swamp with an
unclear path, uncertain
footing, a shifting terrain,
and mean and hungry alli-
gators."
Our allegorical alligators
in the swamp can swallow
up an entire community by
neglect and disinterest.
Shame on Indian River
County and the owners of
Vista Meadows, if this is
allowed to happen.
Don't let us down.
Gail Martin
Vero Beach

Ongoing problem
I have been a resident of
Vista Gardens for eight
years, and have never had
any doubts that it was a
great decision to buy inVero.
The unsightly look of the
property now, not to men-
tion the influx of snakes and
rodents coming closer to our
homes, has worried me.
The worst thing is that it
has become a health hazard.
It continues to amaze me
that it is left that way.
The owner has not been
forced to take care of the
issues.
Please understand that
this is our home. We don't
care to live in a jungle.
Please continue to care
about us and publicize what
is happening, so that legisla-
tion won't drag their feet.

Deplorable condition
of golf course
I am a resident at Vista
Royale.
I took an early retirement
at age 55 in order to enjoy
the fruits of my labor.
The condition of the Vista
Meadows Golf Course in
Vero Beach is unsightly and
unhealthy.
Please keep these
deplorable grounds a top
priority to restore in order to
keep Vero Beach a desirable
place to live.
We need help.

Riverside Bank celebrates quarter century


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS
Riverside Bank recently
celebrated 25 successful
years of providing neighbors
and local businesses with a
hometown style of banking.
Riverside opened its doors
on Sept. 13, 1982, the result
of a vision that Vernon D.
Smith, Riverside Bank's
Chief Executive Officer and
founder had.
"A locally owned bank
would be able to offer more
personalized business, and
that's what we did," said Mr.
Smith.
Riverside Bank continues
that philosophy today, offer-
ing hometown banking to
people and businesses in 43
hometowns across Florida.
The Bank's first branch
was a modular trailer situat-
ed at 2211 Okeechobee
Road, in Fort Pierce, where a


courtesy pnoto
Vernon D. Smith is River-
side Bank's chief executive
officer and founder.

two-story branch stands
today.
"The greater Fort Pierce
area was growing and I saw


the need for a customer-
focused bank; a bank that
could provide service by
local people to the local resi-
dents and businesses," said
Mr. Smith.
The Bank began with ten
employees. Today it employs
over 1,000 people, including
five of the original ten.
From its humble begin-
nings of one modest branch
in Fort Pierce a quarter cen-
tury ago, the Bank now owns
65 branch locations
stretched across ten Florida
counties. Two more branch-
es are scheduled to open
before the end of this year.
Riverside Bank has the
largest market share for
financial institutions in St.
Lucie and Okeechobee
counties. Plus, it is the
largest community bank in
Brevard and Volusia coun-
ties.


Visiting Nurse Association


sets flu, pneumonia clinics


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS
VERO BEACH The Vis-
iting Nurse Association has
begun its "Shoo the Flu"
immunization program.
This year, flu vaccinations
are $28, and pneumonia
vaccinations $45.
There is no out-of-pocket
expense for people who
present a Medicare, or a
Health First Medicare HMO
insurance card at the time
of immunization. The VNA
will bill on their behalf.
For others, cash and
checks will be accepted for
payment.
"The flu season is fast
approaching and our goal is
to increase the number of
people getting immunized
this year," said Allison
Downing, VNA health serv-
ices manager.
"The flu vaccine is our
most effective protection
against influenza. More ill-
nesses, hospitalizations
and deaths can be prevent-
ed if people get their flu
shot before the season
begins," she said.
Influenza is a highly con-
tagious disease that often


makes people sick enough
to keep them in bed for sev-
eral days.
People with weakened
immune systems are likely
to suffer more serious
effects because of the flu
virus.
The VNA encourages sen-
iors, people with chronic
health conditions and
other individuals who are
at risk for flu-related com-
plications to get immu-
nized early.
There is no out-of-pocket
expense for those employ-
ees with a Medicare or
Health First Medicare HMO
card at the time of inocula-
tion. The VNA will bill
Medicare on their behalf.
"Employers might consid-
er covering the cost of the
vaccine for their employ-
ees. Not only does this
show concern for their
employees' health, employ-
ers will increase the
chances that their employ-
ees will get vaccinated.
Companies will find that
the expense will be paid for
by the potential decrease in
absenteeism," Ms. Down-
ing said.

watch during breaks.,
There are a few rules, too:
Garners should be 21 to
play, and smoking is not
allowed inside Hit It Big.
Mr. Yocono said the expe-
rience allows his customers
to unwind, and provides an
escape from everyday
stresses.
At Hit It Big, "they're their
own boss," he said. "Nobody


tells them what to do."
Hit It Big is located at 931
14th Lane, Vero Beach,
behind Outback Steakhouse
and next to Vero Bowl. It is
open from 10a.m. to 11 p.m.
Sunday through Thursday
and 10 a.m. to midnight on
Friday and Saturday. It can
be reached at (772) 299-
5678.


The Shoo the Flu corpo-
rate vaccine program
includes no cost for on-site
immunization clinics, edu-
cational material for dis-
play and distribution to
employees, and advertising
and promotional material
is handled by the VNA.
The VNA will bill compa-
nies for the service, or
employees can pay directly
for their immunizations by
cash or check.

clinics will be held at other

IID I THE OA I


"Reflecting on our first 25
years in business," said Mr.
Smith, "our Riverside team
is deeply grateful to our cus-
tomers for their willingness
to trust a new endeavor in
the early 1980s. We also
want to offer our heartfelt
thanks to the employees and
their families, whose dedi-
cation and sacrifices
allowed us to fulfill our cus-
tomers' needs while also
building a strong founda-
tion for future growth."
The Bank celebrated
throughout the week of
Sept. 10-15 in its 15 loca-
tions along the Treasure
Coast.

such a claim.
Isn't it true that we hear
stories nearly every day
about people living to be
wonderfully old without
ever paying one iota of
attention to their lifestyle?
And given that some of
these stories are true, is it


really necessary for us to go
to gyms, trot on treadmills,
spin our cycles and wear out
our high priced running

We all desire to live to an

we love by expanding our
time here. There may be a
hidden truth behind the
stories of those elderly folks
who beat the odds, though.
We are all subject to our
heritage.
Our genetics are the
major influence on how we
look, what our potentials
are and yes, how long we
might live. There are
individuals who, by chro-
mosomal chance, are
predetermined to have
extreme health issues at
very early ages.
Others, like our afore-
mentioned elderly folks,
may sail through life
exhibiting the worst habits
and still outlive their peers.
Most of us, however, lie in
the void between these two
poles.
While we may not be
guaranteed any true
knowledge of our physical
futures, we do know that
living a long time is but one
piece of our life's story.
Truth be told, most of us
would agiee that quality is
more important than
quantity insofar as our life
experience is concerned.
This may be the component
that is often overlooked

CHRISTI WADE
Exercise physiologist
when we think of 'fitness.'
We are trained by the media
to observe subjects through
a shallow lens. That is,
fitness is often more about
looks than it is the more
esoteric elements of our
beings.
True, involvement in a
fitness program will make
you look better, but more
importantly, your percep-
tions will improve. You will
view the world, and yourself
in a more favorable way.
This simple fact can benefit
your professional and
personal life immeasurably.
If we pursue improvement
in the fitness factors of
strength, flexibility, cardio-


vascular fitness and body
composition, there is a very
good chance that we will
enjoy life more, hands
down.
Numerous studies have
proved that people involved
in a fitness program were
more productive at work
and missed fewer days.
People who train regularly
are more apt to overcome
depression, anxiety and
loneliness. We are more
physically able to perform
tasks, whether at work or at
play.
So yes, there is a slim
chance that even without
bringing physical fitness
into your world, you may
live a long time. But would-
n't it be great to know that
while you were here, you did
the most you could to live
your life fully, being happier
and more productive in
your chosen areas?
The odds of a healthy
lifestyle improving the
quality of your life are
stacked enormously in your
favor. Bet on yourself, and
begin the journey to
improve your health.

The Local's Choice for News and


Editor's note: This is the
second part ofa three-part
article describing a typical day
at sea on an ocean cruise.
Ln part one of this series of
columns, I spoke about
what happens and what
you can do on a typical
morning at sea on an ocean
cruise ship.
It's time to talk about lunch
and beyond.
If you're anything like the
"normal" cruiser, you can't
miss this important event
aboard a cruise liner. So, you
go scouting for chow.
As I wrote previously, you
have options: The buffet
restaurant, topside and
poolside. You've got room
service, which doesn't have a
full lunch menu and is
limited to a couple of
sandwiches and snacks, and
the main dining room with


ERIC MASCARENHAS
Travel columnist
open seating, which I prefer.
I should mention that
some cruisers prefer to
patronize the many bars. On
a sea day, the poolside bars,
as well as elsewhere onthe
ship, are kept very busy, as are
the many bars' wait staff. All

bar beverages cost extra,
including bottled water, and a
15 percent gratuity is added
to your bill.
By the way, any purchases
you make aboard ship are
paid with a "sea" card, which
you are given at check-in
time. At any time, you can
verifyyour expenditures
(onboard account) by asking
at the ship's reception desk or
using the in-room TV facility
for checking the account. The
on-board account usually
closes at around midnight the
last night of the cruise. Very
early the morning you dock at
the home port, your receipt is
slid under the door of your
cabin. If the charges are
correct you have nothing to
do. They'll be credited to the
credit card that you provided
at check-in time. Paying for
your on-board account with
cash depends on the cruise
line and ship on which you
are traveling.
For afternoon activities, I
again I refer to the daily
program sheet, which I
always tryto carrywith me so
I know what's going on, where
andwhen.
In general, afternoon
activities are much like those
in the morning, with one
notable change. Afternoon
tea and desserts are served in
the buffet restaurant around
4:30 p.m.
Self -service ice cream is
available almost 24-hours a
day. Specialty coffees and
desserts are available, at an
extra charge, from early
morning until late in the
evening. The caf6 area is
usually indoors in a nice,
comfortable part of a main
deck. Often, there's a piano
player or some other musical
entertainment available at
certain times.
Even if you don'tbuy any
coffee or cake it's a nice place
to sit back, relax and people
watch, if you are so inclined.
I'm sure that many ofyou
would be attracted to the Ben
& Jerry's kiosk where you can
enjoy a portion of their
delectable ice cream (at an
additional cost).
Often, I resort to a nap in
the late afternoon in order to
fortify myself for the
evenings' activities. If you
haven't already found this out
in the morning, you'll find the
shower a bit on the cozy side.
Some folks use the technique
of soaping down the walls
and then rotating their bodies
to soap down efficiently (said
with tongue in cheek). I'm
small, so I have no problem in
the shower.
Many folks get "dressed up"
for dinner, while others dress
casually. I'm in the latter
group and feel more comfort-'
able in a collared shirt, slacks
and on formal nights, a sports
coat. I usually take no ties
with me.
I'll be talking about a
typical evening at sea on an
ocean cruise, in the third and
last part of three narratives
describing one typical day on
an ocean cruise.
Look for part three in about
three weeks.

BOUGAINVILLEA

BLOW-OUT

In 1768 when Admiral Louis de
Bougainvillea began his long jour-
ney to the Pacific Ocean and dis-
covered the vine that now bears his
name, it was a botanical highlight
of the voyage. This Brazilian beau-
ty has assumed its rightful place as
one of the most popular, spectacu-
lar and beautiful tropical plants.
Although normally climbers, they
can be trained to stay bushy as pot
plants, hanging baskets, or as stan-
dard 3 or 4 feet high.

oday, with all the
negativity associated
with using insecti-
cides and garden chemi-
cals, it is more important
then ever to use natural
defenses as a first option
and only use chemical
methods if all other meth-
ods fail.
One of the methods I
recommend is actually
using beneficial bugs to eat
the bugs that you want to
get rid of.

That bug's a lady
In Florida, one of the
most beneficial bugs that
exists is the lady bug.
The lady bug or lady
beetle, is probably one of
the most colorful and best-
known insects that you
actually welcome to your
garden. These delightful
insects prey and eat such
insects as scale, mealy bugs
and mites, along with other
varieties of insect pests. In
Ohio, the lady bug has
become the official state
insect.

five weeks.
Lady beetles can lay eggs
on plants, often where
aphids are present, and the
larvae will begin to eat the
insects as soon as they
hatch. One larva can
consume up to 400 aphids.
They are amazing eaters.
Lady beetles can be
purchased in bulk on the
Internet. They are inexpen-
sive and can provide some
beneficial results. Some-
times, when the insects are
purchased in this manner,
they may fly away from the
area that you want them to
flock to, especially if there is
a lack of food. I often see
lady beetles on plants that I
purchase from local
nurseries.
Often, the nurseries
themselves will use this
method to help keep
insects in check.
In short, this could be a
fun way to experiment to
see how well this method
may actually work for you.
It could also be a great
science project for your.
kids at school.

Pray for more mantis
Another great insect to
have the garden is the
praying mantis. These
unique insects can blend in
very well with their sur-
roundings and are often


never seen because of this
reason.
Like the lady beetle, they
eat all types of insects and
are very effective at control-
ling insects on your plants.
These insects can grow very
large, often more than 2
inches in length. I have on
occasion seen them in my
own gardens around the
house.
They are the state insect
of Connecticut and protect-
ed in that state.
If you spot any of these
beneficial insects in your
yard or garden, take care
not to kill or disturb them.
Remember, they are your
friends and will help to eat
many of the insects that
you have to normally kill
with chemical pesticides.

mation on natural ways to
control insects in gardens,

Controlling pond algae


We've all seen it
happen. Our
community's
pond looks great and then
a little bit of green scum
begins to form at the sur-
face.
Suddenly, the scum
balloons into a huge
blanket, and the pond
becomes a mess.
Having a pond adds a lot
to a community, and
landscaping practices can
affect whether it is nice or
yuck.
In order to keep your
pond looking nice, it is
important not to give the
algae extra food. Algae
really enjoy munching on
nitrogen and phosphorus
that is present in fertilizer
and grass clippings
because they need these
nutrients just like grass
and ornamental shrubs.
When algae are given
large amounts of nitrogen
and phosphorus, algal
blooms may form that
negatively impact the
pond along with making it
unattractive.
Algal blooms cover the
surface of the water and
decrease the amountof
dissolved oxygen available
to aquatic organisms.
This can lead to fish
kills due to algae consum-
ing oxygen instead of
producing it when sun-
light is unavailable.

Rants & Rav


JANET BARGAR
Water Quality Agent

When this oxygen
depletion occurs, fish may
die. In addition, the low
dissolved oxygen problem
also may be compounded
by the death of oxygen
producing aquatic plants
due to blooms blocking
sunlight to them.
To keep these negative
effects from occurring in
your pond, landscape
maintenance practices
should be adjusted.
Limit the fertilizer.
Follow University of
Florida recommendations
for your particular grass
species. They are available
online at www.solutions-
foryourlife. ufl.edu and
from the Indian River
County Extension Service.
When fertilizing near a
pond, leave a "Ring of

Responsibility" at the
water's edge. This is an
untreated area.
If applying a granular
fertilizer with a spreader
that has a deflector shield
or a liquid fertilizer, the
untreated area should
extend at least three feet
from the edge of the pond.
If there is no deflector
shield on the granular
fertilizer spreader, the
untreated area should
extend at least ten feet
from the edge of the pond.
Properly irrigate. Irrigate
two times per week from
March to October and one
to two times every two
weeks from November to
February. Apply 1/2 to 3/4
inch of water during
irrigation.
Cut grass at the correct
height for your species of
grass.
This information is
available online at
http://solutionsfory-
ourlife.ufl.edu and from
the Indian River County
Extension Service.
Keep grass clippings out
of the pond. This includes
not sweeping or blowing
,grass clippings into the
street. The next rainstorm
or irrigation will likely
carry them into the pond.
Leave grass clippings on
the lawn for "grasscy-
cling." When you mow
regularly, clippings quickly


decompose and release
nutrients that fertilize the
lawn. Grasscycling can
supply about a quarter of
the fertilizer needed each
season.
By adopting some of
these practices, you can
help improve your pond's
appearance and keep it
from being an unlimited
buffet for the algae.
For more information,
please contact your Uni-
versity of Florida Indian
River County Extension
Service at (772) 770-5030.
For the past several
months, I have been
writing about a number of
topics based on University
of Florida research such as
pesticide applicator
licensing, irrigation,
fertilization, and natural
resources. Thank you for
taking time to read the
articles.
Now, I would like to hear
from you. A short survey is
located at the following

Greenwise
From page Al
Market opened last week in
Palm Beach Gardens. By
next summer, Publix plans
to open its third GreenWise
Market on Vero Beach's Mir-
acle Mile.
"We've noticed that our
customers like to eat
healthier," said Maria
Brous, director of media
and community relations
for Publix, as she led a
reporter around the Palm
Beach Gardens store on
opening day. "They're
savvier about their food,
but they also have indul-
gences."
At GreenWise Market,
those indulgences include
gelato, gourmet chocolates,
tarts, tortes and truffles.
Publix plans to open five
more of the specialty gro-
ceries during the next two
years. Ms. Brous said the
chain chose areas where
customers were buying
large quantities of natural
and organic products.
Foods labeled "organic"
are produced without addi-
tives, artificial fertilizers or
pesticides.
"Natural" foods are made
without artificial ingredi-
ents.
"Publix is really good at
locating stores in exactly
the right place," said
Helene Caseltine, economic
development director for
the Indian River County
Chamber of Commerce.
"They've got that down to a
science."
The existing 37,000-
square-foot Publix-at Mira-
cle Mile Plaza will be con-
verted into a GreenWise
Market, which is scheduled
to open during the second
or third quarter of 2008.
A conventional Publix
will open across the street,
inside a former Winn-Dixie.
Concepts that prove suc-
cessful at the Palm Beach
Gardens prototype will be
duplicated in later Green-
Wise Market stores.
"We'll learn, get some
feedback," Ms. Brous said.
"It won't be exactly the
same," she added, calling
the Palm Beach Gardens
store a "blueprint."
GreenWise Markets in


Boca Raton, Vero Beach and
Tampa are scheduled to
open next, followed by
Coral Springs and Naples in
2009.
For Publix, which oper-
ates more than 900 stores in
five states, GreenWise Mar-
ket represents a shift for the
77-year-bold chain.
The company spent more
than three years refining
the GreenWise Market con-
cept, Ms. Brous said, and
two years hiring and train-
ing the 200 employees for
the first store.
The result is an amalga-
mation of old and new
ideas a gourmet grocery
with DNA spliced from
farmers markets, restau-
rants and traditional super-
markets.
Inside, baristas serve
organic coffee and teas at a
caf6, while chefs in smart
black jackets carve slabs of
beef tenderloin.
Sushi rolls are fashioned
from organic brown rice
and fish raised without
additives and antibiotics.
Golden beets, heirloom
tomatoes and sweet lychee
fruits fill produce cases. In
all, there are more than 250
varieties of fruits and veg-
etables.
Along with event plan-
ners, there are wine special-
ists, ready to assist cus-
tomers searching for a
bargain Burgundy.
Upstairs, there are deep
armchairs and free wireless
Internet access.
Design touches nod to


environmental awareness,
including lights that dim as
sunlight pours through sky-
lights, waterless urinals in
the men's room and ply-
wood made from sugarcane
stalks.
Styrofoam is banned
from store shelves.
But there are also the sta-
ples of a traditional grocery
store: Cheerios, Lean Cui-
sine and tubes of Pillsbury
chocolate chip cookie
dough.
The store is about choic-
es, Ms. Brous said. Though
GreenWise Market will not
offer the same product line-
up as a standard Publix,
bestsellers from the chain
will be offered at the new
stores.
Prices, though eye-pop-
ping for some bottles of
aged balsamic vinegar and
wine, are comparable with
other Publix stores.
"Yes, there is a higher cost
of doing business with
organic and all-natural
products," Ms. Brous said.
"But you can still bring
those products at reason-
able prices to customers."
Organic food advocates
said customers are willing
to pay the premium prices
for organic items, which
cost between 10 and 30 per-
cent more than traditional
products.
"Organic food is better for
the environment and better
for your health as well," said
Honor Schauland, a
spokeswoman for the Fin-
land, Minn.-based Organic


Consumers Association.
The addition of Green-
Wise Market pits PublLx
against Austin, Texas-based
Whole Foods Market and
Wild Oats Markets, based in
Boulder, Colo.
Whole Foods operates a
store in Palm Beach Gar-
dens, and there is a Wild
Oats in Melbourne.
All three organic grocers
compete for the same
upmarket, health-con-
scious consumers.
"We're always looking at
what the trends are and
staying responsive to our
customers," Ms. Brous said.
Though sales of natural
and organic foods represent
only a fraction of the $550
billion domestic food
industry, retail sales of
organic products grew 17
percent during 2005, reach-
ing nearly $14.6 billion,
according to a manufactur-
er survey .released last year
by the Greenfield, Mass.-
based Organic Trade Asso-
ciation. .


Publix launched its
GreenWise Market brand
eight years ago. Today, the
line spans from organic tor-
tilla chips to toilet paper
made from recycled materi-
als.
"Organic is not new," said
Juan Rodriguez, director of
education for the


Gainesville-based Florida
Certified Organic Growers
and Consumers. "Farmers
have been growing things
not dependent on fertilizers
or pesticides for ages."

STAR SCOPES
James Tucker
Week of 10-05-2007

Aries-March 21 -April 19
You were born with a strong mind, a
wonderful heart and a great spirit. You
are a role model and the leader of the
zodiac pack. You are a loyal friend, a
great parent and a trusted associate.
You always have a kind word for others
with a need. May the universe always
reward you for all you are and all you
do.
Taurus-April 20-May 20
You are much happier when you get
things done in an orderly manner. The
key is to not take on too many jobs at
once. Take care of priorities and spread
the rest out a little. You don't have to
do everything at once. When you tire,
step back, catch a second wind and fin-
ish one project strongly. There is more
left to do, you know.
Gemini-May 21-June 21
Move away from feeling like you are
just surviving. The new changes are


performance of "Voice of the Ever-
glades: Marjory Stoneman Douglas,"
performed by Betty Jean Steinshouer.
Ms. Steinshouer will be portraying
Ms. Douglas in a unique, educational
performance, known as Chautauqua,
something former U.S. President
Theodore Roosevelt described as "the
most American thing in America."
Chautauqua was considered an
important educational tool for adults
across the country, who were able to
hear visiting lecturers discuss topics
that would have otherwise been
foreign to them. Ms. Steinshouer
honors the origins of the Chautauqua
by performing a recreation of the old


good. Stay focused, centered, psyched
up and moving forward. Your future
success depends on how much you
honor your own worth and presence.
When you are happy, others around
you are happy. You are looked up to,
you know.
Cancer-June 22-July 22
Sometimes less is more. When you feel
overloaded, stop, take a walk around
the block and clear your mind. This
allows you time to regroup and move
forward. You don't stay down long.
Your greatest strength is that you finish
what you start. No one is more loyal
and dependable. Thanks for always
being there.
Leo-July 23-Aug. 22'
The moon in Leo gives you an emo-
tional edge. Throw yourself into that
pet project you have been wanting to
tackle. Now is the perfect time to get it
started. This extra energy opens the
heart, sharpens the mind and brings
you to action. Move it forward and you
will be well pleased with the results.
Virgo-Aug. 23-Sept 22
If it isn't any fun and your heart isn't in
it, don't do it. Let this be your "action
gauge." You will stay focused if you use
this idea. You don't have to be all things
to all people. Conserve your time, ener-
gy and resources. Say "no" when your
heart isn't in it. This focus will carry you
forward toward your goals and dreams


circuit Chautauquas when scholars
portrayed historical figures in a first
person setting.
"Chautauqua is a great American
tradition, dating all the way back to
the 19th century, when itinerant
musicians, Sunday School teachers,
and lecturers traveled the circuit,"
said Ms. Steinshouer. "Before there
were a plethora of actors portraying
Mark Twain, there was Samuel
Clemens portraying Mafk Twain, a
character he invented to get himself
out of bankruptcy. There is even a
town in NewYork state named

quicker than any other.
Libra-Sept.23-Oct.22
You continue to be a light for others
searching for universal and spiritual
growth. Life is an adventure for you,
More is on the way. Your strong con-
science continues to guide you and
gives you good judgment when making
decisions. It takes inner strength to be a
leader. You were born to do it.
Scorpio-Oct.23-Nov.21
Your personal growth and understand-
ing continue to unfold. You make it
look so easy. If only we knew how
much time you spend inside before
you reveal the outer truth. Do you ever
sleep? An extra hour or two would be
very helpful. Mercury in Scorpio gives
you extra clarity. You are fearless and
highly capable. What a great blessing.
Sagittarius-Nov. 22-Dec.21
Your good hearted nature and positive
attitude are uplifting to those around
you. You have "high spirit." You give
others hope and courage. Your energy
is strong with' the boost from Jupiter.
You have come so far this year. Yqu will
continue to uncover life's deeper mys-
teries. The master key is to listen to and
trust your very first impressions.
Capricorn-Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Act decisively on your goals and plans
and success is assured. You have the

Chautauqua, where all sorts
of events go on every
summer."
"The Chautauqua that I do
is very much based on the
old-style format, of interac-
tion with the audience and
soliloquies rather than a
scripted performance,
which never changes. A lot
of Chautauquans these days
are out-of-work actors who
don't have time to learn
more of their characters
than the scripted part, but
that is not really Chau-
tauqua. Chautauqua is not
theater, although it may be
partly composed of acting
and recital," she said.
"But there should be no
fourth wall, as there is when
you are watching a play. In
Chautauqua, the author or
historic figure being
portrayed should be right
there with the audience,"
Ms. Steinshouer added.
Ms. Steinshouer became
involved with Chautauqua
nearly 30 years ago, when a
fateful meeting changed her
life. She has toured 43
states since 1988 with her
Chautauqua portrayals of
great women authors,
including Harriet Beecher
Stowe, Marjorie Kinnan
Rawlings, Willa Cather,
Laura Ingalls Wilder,
Gertrude Stein, and Sarah
Orne Jewett. She has
invested years into ongoing
research on each author,
seeking a skillful mastery of
their personality as well as
the words and thoughts she
presents. As an intercolle-
giate debater and orator in
undergraduate school, Ms.
Steinshouerlearned to
think on her feet, but left
her love of public discourse
and rhetoric behind to
study literature in graduate
school. In her Chautauqua
career, both fields come
together.
"I was teetering on the
edge of living a normal
existence," she said. "Desk
jobs, speech writing I
was good at all that and had
been promoted until I had a
staff of 22 to supervise. Then


I met the likes of Hal
Holbrook and Lily Tomlin;
they ruined it for me. Lily
said 'Even if you win the rat
race, you're still a rat,' and
she told me about her role
model, a woman named
Ruth Draper, who had
toured with all these
characters she had in her
head. Hal taught me my
performances style, by
soliloquy rather than
scripts, so that I could have
hours and hours of my
character's words in my
head and use different
material with each audi-
ence," she added.
"I had been studying the
authorWilla Gather, think-
ing I might go back to
school and write a Ph.D.
dissertation on her. Instead,
I turned all that research
into a three-act play, which
became a Chautauqua after
I met Holbrook and Tom-
lin," she said. '
After she began to work as
a Chautauqua performer,
Ms. Steinshouer found it
became her true passion.
She expanded the range of
characters she portrayed,
often feeling like the
performances were simply
meant to be.
"Most of the time the
characters choose me; that
was definitely true in the
early years," she explained.
"More recently, the Florida
Humanities Council has
requested that I work on the
authors who can bring
Florida history to life. That
happened in 1999 with
Harriet Beecher Stowe and
last year with Marjory
Stoneman Douglas."
Marjory Stoneman
Douglas, an eminent
American conservationist
and writer who passed away
in 1998 at the age of 108, has
proven to be quite a chal-
lenge for Ms. Steinshouer,
but one she readily
embraces.
Ms. Douglas was a
champion of the everglades
and in 1993 she was award-
ed the Presidential Medal of
Freedom, the highest honor


given to a civilian by then
President Bill Clinton. Ms.
Steinshouer spent six years
studying Marjory Stoneman
Douglas, while researching
a book she was writing for
the University Press of
Florida's History and
Culture Series. The book,
focused on women authors
in Florida.
The book, titled "Running
South In Agitation: The
Florida Journeys of Harriet
Beecher Stowe, Sarah Orne
Jewett, Laura Ingalls
Wilder, Edna St. Vincent
Millay, Marjorie Kinnan
Rawlings, Elizabeth Bishop,
Marjory Stoneman Dou-
glas, and Anne Morrow
Lindbergh," is currently in
production. Despite the
challenge of portraying Ms.
Douglas, she has come to
be one of Ms. Steinshouer's
favorite performances.
"I didn't think I'd ever say
this, but I love her voice,"
Ms. Steinshouer said. "It's
.the most difficult to do of
all my characters. She had
a very distinctive, almost
patrician way of speaking,
and she lived to be very
old, but I portray her
younger than most people
who met her can remem-
ber. This gives them
something to discover,
because she met a lot of
people in her old age, and I
want to show what she was
like before they met her
and how she went from
being a hack writer to
being a crusader."
In 1990, Ms. Douglas
wrote, "The most unhappy
thing about conservation is
that it is never permanent.
If we save a priceless
woodland today, it is
threatened from another
quarter tomorrow." That
message forms the central
theme for the portrayal Ms.
Steinshouer brings to the
stage, who feels that in true
Chautauqua fashion,
education of those who
attend is key.
"I hope that audiences
learn that Florida is in
trouble," she said. "Our


natural environment is
dying around us and we
need to do something."
The Emerson Center at
the Unitarian Universalist
Fellowship Humanities
Series will continue
throughout the year. In
December, the public will
be invited to attend

ries: Songs of Florida,"

Rights Martyr: Harry T.
Moore" in February. March
heralds an in-depth look at
"Past Visions, Future
Solutions: Solving the
Conundrum of Suburban
Sprawl," and the season
closes in April with a look
into Florida's past when
David Colburn, provost


Bycl


emeritus and professor of
history at the University of
Florida, shares the story of
the political, demographic,
and social transformation
of the Sunshine State in a
session titled "From Yellow
Dog Democrats to Red
State Republicans: Florida
and Its Politics since 1940."

INDIAN RIVER BALLROOM
845 16th Place *Vero Beach 794-9040 ?
a i l


BY TAMARA DOURNEY
Entertainment writer
When people discuss the
history of a region, one of
the last things they usually
consider is the cultural
growth of the area.
This has, thankfully, not
been the case with Indian
River County. Many
historical records of the
region address the impor-
tance of the widespread
access to theater and the
arts.
That history has been
made all the richer thanks
to the involvement of the
Vero Beach Theatre Guild, a
community-based theater
program powered by local
performers and volunteers
that has been operating in
the area for 50 years.
It all began in 1925 when
Sheriff Frick and his wife,
both former performers,
organized a showcase event
for local talent. They called
it the Vero Follies and the
event was held annually.
The event was successful
and grew to become the
first actual community
theater in the area, which
developed in 1938 and was
known as the Civic Players.
The Civic Players held its
performances inVero's old
community building, which
now houses the Recreation
Department facilities, and
continued successfully
until World War II broke
out.
During the early 1940s,
the focus in the community
was turned to the war
effort, and the community
theater program took a
backseat to more important


matters. However, when the
war ended in 1945, the Vero
Business and Professional
Women's club felt that there
should be a resurgence in
the arts. That belief led
them to organize those
interested in theater, and in
1952 a new group emerged.
The Little Theatre Group,
spawned from those
original Business and
Professional Women's Club
meetings, advertised its
theatrical productions
under the name of The
Indian River Players. The
Players were missing one
key element of a theatrical
production group, the
theater. Undaunted by the
problem, they took their
show on the road, opening
with a set of three one-act
plays that were performed
at the Naval Air Base and
the local high school. The
plays were "Dora, The
Beautiful Dishwasher,"
"The Red Key" and "Thank
You, Doctor," each of which
had a separate director and
stage manager.
"Volunteers have always
been the heart and soul of
the Theatre Guild, no
matter which stage of its
history you examine," said
John Toohey, Guild Presi-
dent.
Their passion for their
work was evident and the
Little Theatre Group was a
success. After six years of
performing under this
name, the group decided to
formally organize and on
Oct 14, 1958, Judge John H.
McCarty signed the order
approving the charter for
the newly christened Vero
Beach Theatre Guild.

The fancy title didn't
change much of their
circumstances, though.
Guild members continued
to rehearse in private
homes, warehouses and
churches, any space that
was available. Their
costuming and props were
stashed in garages and
offices all over town.
However, the Guild was
happily progressing despite
the difficulties, and spent
another six years working
successfully within the
community.
Residents are often
unaware of these humble
beginnings, as is the case
for Saint Edwards Upper
School student Elizabeth
Sockol, who is in the
school's Theatre Program
and who planned on
auditioning for a part in the
upcoming Guild produc-
tion of "Oliver."
"I never knew that it had
been around that long," she
said. "I can't imagine
putting on plays in some-
one's house or in a ware-
house."
The members of the Guild
were in for a wonderful
surprise, though. In 1964,
the city of Vero Beach began
to work with the Guild,
granting the organization a
long-term lease for a plot of
land on the east side of the
Indian River.
The prime location was
restricted to cultural-
projects, and the Guild was
a perfect fit. The players
had finally found a more
permanent home, and
began work on what is now
known as the Riverside
Theatre Greenroom and
offices.
The space, which was
used to hold rehearsals and
store sets and props, was
just the beginning. The
Guild had plans to install a
wonderful new theater with
the ability to seat up to 300
members of the communi-
ty. However, when the
members began to consult
with local citizens, they
realized that the auditori-
um would need to be
capable of seating many
more.
The community wanted
to use the theater for other
events, such as small
conventions, theater road
shows, and as a venue for

Theatre guild celebrates 50 years


recitals, lectures, art shows
and other cultural events.
Indeed, community
members told the Guild,
the auditorium should seat
at least 500 people.
"With such a large project
scope, the Guild suddenly
realized it was out of the
realm of what can be done
by volunteers; the cost and
management for a task this
large would require more
than the volunteers were
capable of giving, despite
their dedication," said Mr.
Toohey.
Never one to give up, the
Theatre Guild created the
Vero Beach Community
Theatre Trust and charged
the new group with the
responsibility of holding
fundraising programs for
the completion of the
theatre buildings, as well as
eventual management of it.
The Guild then assigned its
long -term lease with the
city over to the trust, also
handing over the keys to
existing building..
With the newly created
Trust running the business
end of things, the Theatre
Guild went on with the
creative side of the pro-
gram, premiering as the in-
house company with a
performance of "Tom
Jones." The relationship
between the Guild and the
Trust continued, with the
Guild performing in what is
now known as Riverside
Theatre.
After presenting 72 plays
with volunteers as the
driving force, there was
pressure from the commu-
nity and the Trust to bring
in more professional staff.
"Members of the Trust
pushed for a divergence
from the all-volunteer
participation, wanting to
bring in more professional
productions," Mr. Toohey
said. "Volunteers began to
withdraw and the guild
knew that a solution would
have to be reached. It was
decided that the two groups
would need to go down
their own paths at that
point."
For the Guild, the heart of
the matter came back to
their volunteers. The
charter by-laws not only
suggested that volunteers
be involved, it required
them. The Guild's Board of
Directors decided they
must honor their commit-
ment to the charter and at
the end of the 1984-85
season, theVero Beach
Theatre Guild separated
from the Riverside Theatre.
In January of 1985, the
Guild Board made yet
another move towards
finding a permanent
location for the group :
when they authorized the
purchase of the former
Central Assembly of God
Church, whose building
was located at 2020 San
Juan Avenue. After such a
long road, the Guild had
finally found a home.
Volunteers once again
came into play, bringing
their hammers and drills
and working tirelessly to
remodel the building to fit

"I'm very confident,"
McBride said. "It's a must-
win situation. I want to
show I'm a legitimate con-
tender.
"I'm in the best shape of
my life. I'm on my, way to
becoming the first Irish-
born heavyweight champi-
on."
Trained in Vero Beach by
former champion James
"Buddy" McGirt, McBride


brings a 34-5-1 record into
. the fight. His greatest victo-
ry came on June 11, 2005
when he defeated former
World Heavyweight cham-
pion Mike Tyson with a
technical knockout in the
sixth round.
Tyson called it quits after
the contest, ending his infa-
mous career after over 50
fights.
"They didn't give me much
hope against him," McBride

said. "Mike Tyson said he
would cut me up like a fish.
He tried.
"He is one crazy son of a
gun. I had to believe in
myself and focus in that
fight.
"People say Andrew
Golota is a dirty fighter, but
there's no one dirtier than
Mike Tyson.
"He hit me below the belt.
He head butted me. He tried
to break my arm.
"He tried to bite my nipple
off.
"I retired Mike Tyson."
McBride is aiming to have
the same fate befall Golota.
"I love the Polish people,
but they're going to see their
hero lay down and retire
after I beat him," McBride
said.
The native of Clones, Ire-
land will be fighting in "The
World's Most Famous
Arena" for the first time in a
professional career that
dates back to 1992.
"It will be exciting,"
McBride said. "Fighting in
Madison Square Garden is a
dream fight for me.
"When I was there I went
upstairs and saw all the
names of the fighters who
fought there. Joe Louis,
Rocky Marciano. It's amaz-
ing.
"I can't wait."
After representing his
country in the 1992 Summer
Olympics in Barcelona,
Spain, the 34-year-old made
his professional debut that
December, fighting Gary
Charlton to a draw.
McBride then won his next
19 fights in a row before suf-
fering a TKO at the hands of
Axel Schulz in late 1997. His
first loss came just over two
months after tasting cham-
pionship gold for the first
time by defeating Paul Dou-
glas for the vacant Irish
Heavyweight and Northern
Ireland Heavyweight titles.
Since then, McBride has
added more hardware to his
collection, including the
International Boxing Coun-
cil Americas Heavyweight
title, but unfortunately was
unable to capitalize on his
victory over Tyson.
After beating lowly ranked'
Byron Polley in four rounds
in April 2006, McBride suf-
fered his latest loss, an upset

golfers of all ages, abilities
and gender to help out with
its latest product, the Stulz
Golf Driver.
The company is best
known for its innovative
Nano Arrow Tri-Edge shafts,
which is designed to
eliminate the common
cause of hooks and slices.
This shaft is specifically
designed for oversized
driver heads.
The large club heads
inspire golfers to swing with


confidence. However, most
golfers continue to hit many
toe or heel shots, resulting
in hooks and slices that
continually miss the fairway
and lose distance. Most of
the large club heads, such as
the 440cc to 460cc have a
center of gravity that is
positioned away from the
centerline of the shaft.
This puts additional stress
on the shaft causing
twisting. Conventional
graphite shafts cannot

prevent this. The Nano
Arrow Tri-Edge design and
Nano construction provides
the strength and control to
prevent club head from
twisting on impact and
transfer more energy to the
ball.
The triangular shape near
the center of the shaft
transfers the energy over
three-edges to minimize
torque without sacrificing
feel. Hooks and slices are
greatly reduced. The shot
dispersion is considerably
narrower. Distance is
improved. The triangular
shape also transfers ideal
vibration to provide impact
feedback for the user. The
result is longer straighter
shots.
Doug Miller used the
Stulz Golf shaft to power his
way to the Super Senior
Division ReMax Long Drive
Championship last year.
Miller crushed drives well
beyond 345 yards in the
event to capture the crown.
Now Stulz Golf is mating
this innovative shaft with its
own specifically designed
driver head. Best of all, the
company want us to do
testing for them.
Imagine having input on
how a club is designed, built
and marketed. This is an
opportunity normally
reserved for top touring
pros.
"We're looking for regular
golfers that are willing to
give us their thoughts and
impressions," said Gary
Diehl, director of sales for
the company. "The combi-
nation of a driver head,
specifically designed for our
shaft, should help players
gain 15 yards or more from
the tees. And that's yards

To volunteer, visit
www.stulzgolf.com or call
(407) 599-0356. You will be
asked a series of questions
so that the staff can proper-
ly fit you for the best loft
and shaft flex for your
swing. Your driver is then
shipped your way with
instructions and a question-
naire so that you can give
them feedback to learn from
the "real" golfing public
what their driver does and
does not do for them.
It's a chance that not
many ever get. I cannot
think of another company
that has reached out to the
general golfing public and
asked us to test their new
product before it goes on
the store shelf.
Now if you'll excuse me, I
have some testing to do.

Treasure Coast Top 5


BY JOHN MACDONALD &
MATTHEW DEWHURST
Sports writers
With five weeks gone in
the 2007 high school foot-
ball season, not much has
changed in our Treasure
Coast Top 5. Both Vero
Beach and South Fork had a
bye this week. But Centen-
nial lost and Martin County
lost. That means some
minor shuffling has to be
done. Centennial drops a
spot for the second week in
a row, while South Fork gets
lucky and moves into the 4
spot. Now the question is,
can the Bulldogs stay there?
1. Vero Beach (4-0) -Vero
Beach gave everyone in the
state a break this past week,
using the time off to prepare
for a key district contest
against Palm Beach Lakes.
Few can forget last year's
game where the Rams built
a 28-7 lead only to see the
Indians come back to tie it
at the end of regulation and


then win it .a
on Max
Fe ur e r's
field goal in .
the fourth
overtime.
V e r o
Beach came
away with a
45-42 victo-
ry, the
b i g g es t Dewhurst
comeback in
the program's 80-year histo-
ry.
This year, Lakes comes in
at 3-2, but 1-0 in district
play, and will be looking for
some payback for letting
last season's matchup slip
away.
2. Fort Pierce Westwood
(4-1) The Panthers totally
dominated Treasure Coast
in a 29-0 romp last week, but
ran into trouble with penal-
ties and some miscommu-
nication in the second half.
Head coach Kevin McMa-
hon continued to say how
lucky his team was to come


away with a
win, but, in
reality, Trea- -
sure Coast -
was lucky
the score
w a sn t
worse.
3. Martin
County (3-
2) The
Tigers stay MacDonald
in the third
spot, despite losing to
Jupiter Christian, 34-31.
With the two teams trailing
them either losing or being
idle, Martin County's posi-
tion is safe for now.
Had the Tigers shown up
against the Eagles for the
first three quarters, the
game would most likely
have had a different out-
come, as Martin County fell
behind 34-10 before scoring
four fourth-quarter touch-
downs.
This week, facing No. 2
Westwood, even playing for
the entire game might not


even be enough for the up
and down Tigers.
4. South Fork (2-2) -
South Fork was idle and will
look to go over the .500 mark
against a tough 3-1 Atlantic
team in a key District 14-5A
showdown.
5. St. Lucie West Centen-
nial (2-3) Coach Jim
O'Neal likes to schedule
tough competition to test
his team's desire. However,
we don't think he was pre-
pared for the Eagles three
game slide. After two big
wins, Centennial has
dropped games to West-
wood, Bayside, and most
recently to Kathleen. Cen-
tennial returns home to
face Eau Gallie Oct. 5. Only
time will tell is they can also
get back on the winning
track.
If you think we're wrong,
let us know! You can contact
Matt or John at macdon-
ald@hometownnewsol.com
or dewhurst@hometown-
newsol.com.


Fighter
From page B8


ly a year ago.
Part of the problem was
the mishandling of
McBride's career. Fights
against heavyweight cham-
pions John Ruiz and Lamon
Brewster never material-
ized and the Irishman's
future in the ring was on
the ropes.
In stepped new manager
Jerry Quinn who quickly
reacquainted McBride with
the strength-and-condi-
tioning coach he worked
with during the Tyson fight
- Radovan Serbula.
"He (McBride) didn't get

the needs of the Theatre
Guild.
The Guild remains in
the building today and
continues to provide the
public with the invalu-
able access to local
theater that made them a
star of the community so
long ago. As the Guild
celebrates its golden
anniversary, their season
is packed with familiar
favorites and includes
productions such as
"Oliver" that offer
aspiring actors of all ages
a chance to be a part of
live theater.

the right direction," Quinn
said. "He slipped away. He
was not focused.
"I knew he had the poten-
tial to become the next
heavyweight champion
"Radovan worked out
with him and said he's a
born natural. If you fight
him the right way, there is
no one that can beat him."
Quinn also brought
McBride to McGirt who
quickly ascertained the
fighter's promise in the
ring.
"We worked for a week,"
McGirt said. "Everything


went well and he came
back.
"I'm very proud of him.
He's coming along right,
but he still has a ways to go.
"We worked on his bal-
ance. It wasn't the best. He
had no foot coordination at
all. He's really improved in
that."
Like Quinn, McGirt feels
that McBride will surprise a
lot of people in NewYork.
"I feel very good," McGirt
said. "A lot of people don't
think he can beat Golota. I
feel in my heart that he can
beat him and beat him con-

vincingly."
As for McBride, he prefers
to do all his talking in the
ring.
"They will talk about this
fight for years," McBride
said. "After the Tyson fight, I
met Muhammad Ali and he
said, 'I'm the greatest and
you're the latest.'
"I'm not looking past
Andrew Golota. I can't wait
to show the world I'm a
force to be reckoned with.
"You can't hide from Kevin
McBride."

0 DOWN YOUR
-@ ELECTRIC BILL!

As Temperatures continue to rise this summer, so can the
amount of energy you consume. Here are some energy savings
tips on how you can keep your bill as low as possible.



STrn off anything you're not using. This includes all equipment and appliances,
televisions, VCR's, computers and LIGHTS!
S' Refrigerator: Give the unit breathing roonim, clean the coils, and don't set
temperatures too low. Fresh foods keep at 37 to 42 degrees, frozen foods at 0 to
5 degrees. Defrost refrigerators and freezers before ice buildup becomes to thick.
If you have a microwave oven, use it for reheating and cooking small quantities.
o Do laundry, vacuuming, cooking etc. early in the morning or late in the
evening when the outdoor is cooler.
\U Use ceiling fans and room fans in occupied rooms but keep fans off in
i 'occupied areas

Why is it important to think about
your resume when you have a "good"
job, the economy is healthy and you are
in a career you enjoy, located in a place
you love? Because, change is inevitable.
Whether you decide to make a change
or the company you are working for
decides to restructure its organization,
you must be ready, and the best time to
work on your resume, make the neces-
sary updates and revisions is when you
are secure in your job not pressured by
the stress of a job search.
Updating your r6sume during a time
of status quo provides the opportunity
to re-evaluate your skills and compe-
tencies without feeling pressured. More
importantly, it builds self-confidence
and self-esteem as you realistically
assess your work experiences and what
you bring to the job market. This may be
the catalyst that pushes you to ask your-
self: "Is it time for a career change?"
Often we are limited in our perceptions
because we have been in the "same"
work environment too long. Our talents
may be taken for granted, and updating
your rdsum6 provides time to reflect on
all those accomplishments you have
achieved. Speaking of accomplish-
ments, have you included these in your

resume?
A great r6sume has a professional look
with the right punch, personality and
purpose. It showcases your career high-
lights and contains a concise summary
statement positioning you for the career
you are seeking. Your resumd is your
very own sales brochure. It is the best
way to market your talents, skills and
core competencies. Writing (or re-writ-
ing) a resumd, provides you with the
opportunity to think about your career-
path, substantiate your self-worth, and
to reinforce what value you bring to the
organization.
Too often, resum6s are the last thing
on an employee's mind especially when
there is no indication that their employ-
er is about make some significant
change to the employee base. Whether
you are still in the job you love or are
ready to move to another career, the
"right" rdsum6 is a must have!

Throughout history,

Vero Beach draws hardy

settlers, wealthy snowbirds


BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer


VERO BEACH Her name was Sarah.
It was not Vero, as countless guide-
books, history texts and travelogues
would later claim.
Sarah Gifford, wife of Vero Beach pio-
neer Henry Gifford, needed a name for
the post office her family wanted to
establish at its Florida homestead.


What is known today is that Mrs. Gif-
ford picked the name "Vero" for the
fledgling settlement.
The origins of the name itself, howev-
er, are a riddle.
For decades, the misconception that
Mr. Gifford named the city for his wife
made the rounds, through books about
Florida history and later on the Internet.

Vero
From page 2
There were rumors, too, that Vero might
be a family name. But the Giffords, settlers
from Vermont, had no Vero in their family
for five generations, according to records
at the Indian River County Main Library.
When the Giffords submitted their appli-
cation to the U.S. Postal Service in 1891,
the clerk assumed "Vero" was a misnomer,
and changed it to "Zero."
Displeased, Mr. Gifford changed it back.
Today, the most widely accepted theory
about the origin of the name can be traced
to Mrs. Gifford, who studied Latin. "Vero"
is a form of the Latin word "veritas," which
means truth.
"Beach" was tacked on in 1925, to add
cachet during the Florida land boom.
For early settlers, threats ranged from
malarial swamps to warring Native Ameri-
can tribes.
"They came with their guns," said Ruth
Stanbridge, the county historian and a for-
mer county commissioner.
Settlers planted beans, pineapples, sug-
arcane and the citrus that would one
day give Indian River County a worldwide
reputation.
From the river, they caught fish, and,
along its banks, harvested sea grape to
make into jelly.
Following the Civil War, when the area
that would become Indian River County
began attracting more settlers, Midwest-
erners and Northerners were drawn by the
promise of cheap land and a long growing
season.
Railroad magnate Henry Flagler laid
track through Vero in 1893, and farmers
began to ship their wares on his Florida
East Coast Railway. In 1903, a railway sta-
tion opened inVero.
Nine years later, Iowa banker Herman
Zeuch bought 48,000 acres of swamp and


scrub, hoping to lure other hardy settlers
to the area.
The land, for which Mr. Zeuch paid 50
cents an acre, would eventually sprout
into Vero Beach.
But when Mr. Zeuch founded his Indian
River Farms Co., Indian River County
would not be carved out of neighboring
counties for more than a decade, and
Fellsmere was the largest city in the area.
Vero was eventually incorporated in
June 1919.
During the early half of the 20th century,
the city drew Northerners seeking a winter
playground.
Wealthy Ohioans founded the Riomar
Country Club in the early 1920s, one of the
few golf courses on the long stretch of
peninsula between Daytona Beach and
Miami.
In January 1921, as Warren G. Harding
traveled the Indian River by houseboat,
local residents swarmed the craft, implor-
ing the president-elect to come ashore.
He did, and played a round of golf at
Riomar.
As the Florida land boom reached its
peak in the 1920s, Vero continued to grow.
North of the city, a developer planned
new homes on an 800-acre tract that
stretched along Dixie Highway. To attract
interest, the developer launched a nation-
wide contest to name the new city, draw-
ing more than 3,000 entries.
A Fort Pierce woman submitted the cho-
sen entry, winning a $1,000 lot in the
planned development Winter Beach.
By the 1920s, residents of Fellsmere, San
Sebastian (the name was later shortened
to Sebastian) and Vero had grown restless,
after several disputes with the St. Lucie
County government in Fort Pierce.
In May 1925, fed up with the status quo,
prominent residents boarded the Indian
River County Special, a chartered train to
Tallahassee.
Lawmakers carved Indian River County


from northern St. Lucie County, after a
contentious fight in the Florida Senate. Of
the 67 Florida counties, Indian River was
formed next-to-last
William Jennings Bryan, the presidential
candidate and noted orator, made his last
public appearance in Vero, speaking at a
downtown rally about the formation of
Indian River County.
Following the fight for the county's cre-
ation, there was another battle ahead.
Winter Beach, which billed itself as the
place "where sunshine spends the win-
ter," wanted to become the county seat. A
developer offered cash for a new court-
house.
Vero, which had grown as a regional
hub, wanted the distinction, too.
Eventually, Vero won in a narrow vote of
county residents. New Deal funding
allowed construction of a new court-
house, which opened in 1936.
As national interest increased in light of
the land boom, tourists headed to the
Sunshine State in vast numbers.
McKee Jungle Gardens, a popular road-
side attraction in the 1940s, drew more
than 100,000 visitors during that decade.
DuringWorldWar II, McKee Jungle Gar-
dens was closed, and turned over to the
government to train soldiers bound for
the Pacific. Meanwhile, the Navy estab-

lished a training base at the Vero Beach
Municipal Airport.
In the boom years following the war,
local citizens, weary of the boom-and-
bust cycles of tourism, founded the ven-
erable Hibiscus Festival in 1953 as a cele-
bration of local heritage.
The original festival, which was held
annually from 1953 to 1962 and again
from 1964 to 1969, was conceived as a
way to entertain the summer tourists
who were vacationing here in greater
numbers. The festival was revived in
2003.
Piper Aircraft, today the county's largest
employer, built a plane-manufacturing
plant here in 1957.
After World War II, businessman Bud
Holman lured the Brooklyn Dodgers to
Vero Beach, offering the old Navy bar-
racks and open land for spring training.
Since 1948, the team has trained at
Dodgertown, even after it bolted Brook-
lyn for sunny Los Angeles. The team is set
to play a final spring training season at
Dodgertown in 2008, and then move west
to Glendale, Ariz.
Today, as Vero Beach considers a
future with the Dodgers and the pos-
sibility of Piper Aircraft taking flight,
growth issues remain paramount in
Indian River County.

Cities have rich histories


BY NATASHA CARTER
Staff writer

When Florida became a state in 1845,
settlers weren't far behind.
Before counties were established,
mass areas of land were referred to as
the east and west Florida.
In Mosquito County and the area
that is now Fellsmere people settled as
early as 1842, but not many.
When the Armed Occupation Act,
which was an incentive to populate
Florida took place and settlers came
obtaining as much as 160 acres of free
land.
The real boost in settlement came in
1880s with the emergence of the rail-
road.
Although Fellsmere wasn't at its
peak, areas just north of it were blos-
soming.
Edward Nelson Fell, an engineer
from New Zealand, moved to central
Florida in the 1880s. He developed a
sugarcane plantation and supervised
drainage projects in Narcoossee.
Mr. Fell lived in Siberia, Englard,
Russia between 1897 and 1906, before
returning to Warrenton, Va. in 1907
and then to the undeveloped wet-
lands.
Mr. Fell established the Fellsmere
Farm Company in 1910 with 118,000
acres of land.
"He paid $2 million for land. Then
you could buy 10 acres for $55 each or
put a third down and make payments,"
said Korky Korker, a city resident.
Mr. Fell obtained the massive
acreage from Anthony Russell, a devel-
oper, who bought 118,000 acres to be
developed, and called it Cincinnatus.
Fellsmere was founded in 1911,
which comprised initially of con-
structing 18 buildings. The population
grew to 503 in 1913, making Fellsmere
the second largest community in the
county, second to Fort Pierce.
But the disappearance of a nearby
colony is said to be responsible for the


population influx.
In 1912, Broadmoor was a colony
that sat just outside of Fellsmere the
people of the area built homes, against
the advice of Indians who warned
them of periodic flooding. The town
later flooded and forced residents out.
In 1915, the city of Fellsmere incor-
porated.
Mr. Fell's tenacious personality
helped him to create The Fellsmere
Farms Railroad. The railroad operated
with one railroad engine and many
cars that transported muck, which was
the first thing sent out of the town.
Later, the cars carried produce and
crops and became part of the Florida
East Coast Railroad.
The town boomed bringing, light to
the dark area.
"An electric plant was built that had a
generator that operated until 9 p.m. if
you needed light after that you had to
use candles. The generator was bought
by Florida Power and Light and that's
how they started the company," said
Joel Tyson, president of the Indian
River County Historical Society.
The city's charter gave both men and
women the right to vote, making it the
first municipality south of the Mason
Dixon Line to do so. Zena Drier was
the woman who cast the first female
vote in Fellsmere. "She was the wife a
city attorney,"Mr. Tyson said.
In June 1915, when a tropical storm
came through and flooded the town.
The flood slowed growth. Fellsmere
Farms Company went bankrupt in
1918. In the 1920s some people came
back to the town, but saw little devel-
opment.
During the 1930s, Fellsmere however
flourished. At that time other cities
were experiencing the effects of the
Great Depression.
"The city always seemed to be
behind or not in line with the moves
other cities were making. During the
depression the city wasn't having a
hard time like their neighbors,"said


OLD SCHOOL


Ruth Stanbridge, county historian.
Efforts to grow various crops, like
barley and rice, didn't do well. Then
came sugar cane in the 1931 when
Fellsmere's economy recovered.
The Fellsmere Sugar Company was
the first sugar factory in Florida.
"The sugar mills operated about 117
acres of cane, and they did everything,
the complete process," Mr. Tyson said.
"The railroad transferred the sugar
and Fellsmere boomed. The town had
a bank, hospital, electricity that was
powered by artesian wells and paved
streets," Mrs. Stanbridge said.
When World War II came sugar was
still the main source of revenue for the
city. In the 1960s, the city of Fellsmere
no longer had commerce.
Today Fellsmere is actively trying to
revitalize the city. Resident's efforts

include several land annexations to
increase its size.
The city of Fellsmere started as six
square miles and has grown to 37
square miles and counting.
City officials foresee farmers mar-
kets, Olympic rowing facilities, many
new homes and much more to come.

THE HISTORY OF SEBASTIAN

The city of Sebastian officially
incorporated in 1924, but long before
that it had many settlers. Because the
river acted as the highway, people
chose to settle for the access to food.
In 1860, a census list only two peo-
ple living in the Sebastian River area.
In 1880, the area grew to about 30.

Sebastian
From page 4
In 1882, the city was known as
Newhaven when settlers began to
arrive.
The area was apparently named
after The Rev. Thomas New, who ran a
post office.
During the Homestead Act, Paul
Kregol and his.family were one of the
first families to settle in the Sebastian
area as a result of the act.
They settled near an Indian mound
called Barkers Bluff, which was a land
marker for people traveling the river,
until it was sold off for shells to con-
struct roads.
Later Sylvania Kitchings, a resident
changed the name to Sebastian, like
the river.
The city still keeps with the theme of
an old fishing village, with marinas,
docks and homes that still line the
Sebastian River.
"At one time you could see fish
houses from U.S. 1, while driving,"
Mrs. Stanbridge said.
Although no fish houses remain the
city still takes pride in its history.
The city of Sebastian also consists of
the Roseland community.
Roseland apparently was named for
the first doctor to practice in the area.


Dr. David Rose, who settled in 1908.
He originally came to grow oranges,
but ended up practicing medicine for
34 years.
The city by the river also consists of
a community that was once a city.
In 1886, George Sears settled in
what's nowWabasso.
According to published articles,
Wabasso was once called Lawanna
after the wife of early pioneer family.
In 1925, residents decided to incor-
porate the community.
Its first mayor was J.L. Powers.
The city didn't see many after him,
because not long after the town was
no longer incorporated.
The cancellation of the city's charter
came when the town couldn't keep up
with necessary improvements.
The origin of name of the once
incorporated town is still a mystery.
No one is sure of the origin of the
name.
Many believe J.R. Perot, a railroad
employee, apparently named the town
Wabasso, taken form Henry
Wadsworth Longfellow's poem "The
song of Hiawatha"
Others believe prior to settlers the
Guale Indians named it Wabasso,
which is the backward spelling of the
Indians origin in Ossabaw, Ga. Oss-
abaw Island is located off the coast of
Georgia.


Another belief is that the town was
named by settlers that moved from
the mid-west, probably from or near
the city of Wabasso, Minn.
While this is the most logical expla-
nation the name will likely remain a
mystery.
Both cities, and the communities all
eventually became one county.
Before the incorporation of
Fellsmere, Wabasso and Sebastian
were all a part of Mosquito County.
Parts were taken to form St. Lucie
County, which included acres and
miles of land that is now Indian River,


Okeechobee, Brevard counties.
In 1925 Fellsmere, Vero Beach and
Sebastian became Indian River Coun-
ty.
"People in areas of Sebastian and
Fellsmere no longer wanted to travel
to Fort Pierce to receive marriage
license or even permit approval," Mrs.
Stanbridge said.
Because the cities were a part of St.
Lucie County, Fort Pierce was the
county seat. After it become Indian
River County the city of Vero Beach
became the county seat.

FELLSMERE
A century ago, Fellsmere was a boom-
town.
With 118,000 acres of land purchased
from a pessimistic developer, town
founder Edward Nelson Fell drained
swamp into farmland and helped start a
railroad linking his namesake hamlet and
Sebastian.
Fellsmere was incorporated in 1911, but
widespread flooding and declines in pop-
ulation soon forced it to relinquish its title
as a regional hub to nearby Vero. When
Indian River County was formed in 1925, it
was newly named Vero Beach not
Fellsmere that became the county seat.
Today, Fellsmere is home to almost
5,000 people and remains an agricultural
center.
Points of interest
Marsh Landing Restaurant: Before it
become a spot for fried catfish and swamp
cabbage, the Fellsmere Estates Building
was the land sales office for the Fellsmere
Estates Corp., founded by Mr. Fell.
Built in 1926, the building served the
community more than Florida Cracker
food during its long history.
Florida Crystal Sugar Co. once used the
building as its headquarters. After the city


recovered from the Great Depression, sug-
arcane production fueled the local econo-
my.
Old-timers remember picking up pay-
checks from a window that remains on the
side of the structure.
After the sugar business went bust, the
building was used for City Council meet-
ings, and the Fellsmere Police Department
occupied the north end of the building.
Officers used a concrete vault originally
designed to hold important documents to
hold prisoners waiting to be transported
to jail.
The building was eventually sold and
boarded up for many years.
In October 1995, Fran Adams bought
the building at public auction, intent on
restoring it.
Today, the landmark structure is Marsh
Landing Restaurant, serving home-
cooked meals amid antiques and other
bric-a-brac.
Marsh Landing Restaurant is located at
44 N. Broadway St., Fellsmere. It can be
reached at (772) 571-8622.
*Old Fellsmere School: Built in 1915 and
opened to students the following year, the
Old Fellsmere School was a focal point in
the burgeoning city.
It served as a public school until 1982,

piece of the town's annual Frog Leg Festi-

The building is also noted as an example

which takes its influences from the flat,
subtle features of the Great Plains.

INDIAN RIVER SHORES
Palm trees and tangles of sea grape
border State Road A1A as it stretches
through Indian River Shores. Rows of
houses painted in soft hues line the
Indian River Lagoon. Just beyond the
sugary sand, swimming pools and ten-
nis courts beckon.
Indian River Shores, founded more than
a half-century ago, was planned as a win-
ter haven by Chicago millionaire Fred
Tuerk. Each winter, Indian River Shores'
population about 3,500 year-round -
doubles as out-of-towners return to
oceanfront condominiums and vacation
homes.
Incorporated on June 11, 1953, Indian
River Shores was carved from county land.
Its first residents wanted control over local
subdivision ordinances and zoning.
Mr. Tuerk began acquiring land for the
nascent town in the 1940s. By 1955, he


owned exclusive John's Island and 3,000
acres of surrounding land.
Original plans called for a college or uni-
versity campus on waterfront land, but
Mr. Tuerk died in 1967, long before his
dream could take shape.
The town, which straddles Orchid Island
between the Atlantic Ocean and the Indi-
an River Lagoon, is almost entirely single-
family homes. A handful of shops along
A1A form the blink-and-you'll-miss-it
commercial district.
Points of interest
John's Island: At the turn of the last
century John's Island was best known for
its fertile farmland, not the palatial homes
that rise up between majestic live oaks.
The LaRouche family, settlers from
South Carolina, grew beans and other veg-
etables on the land. Eventually, the farm-
ing community grew to 200 residents, and
a school was built on the 300-acre island.
Today, the 1,650-acre property stretches
across the barrier island. Golf courses roll
gently toward the lagoon, and buyers pay
north of $5 million for ocean views.
John's Island Real Estate Co. is located at 1
John's Island Drive, Indian River Shores. It
can be reached at (772) 231-0900.
Village Shops: Boutiques stocked with
clothing, linens and stationary fill this
quaint shopping center. All told, there are
a dozen shops, including an art gallery, a
gourmet foods shop and a high-end furni-
ture seller.
Village Shops is located at 6200 S.R. A1A,

The Hallstrom Farmstead, which is listed on the National Register of Historic
Places, was established in 1918 was a pineapple plantation, which was located

Indian River County Historical Society as a house museum. Restoration has
been completed and the house will soon be open to the public.


Indian River Shores.
ORCHID
Orchid was first settled in the late 1800s,
initially drawing more attention for the cit-
rus trees homesteaders planted there than


for its titular flower.
Frank Forster, a German sea captain,
settled the area in 1880, naming it for the
wild orchids growing in trees.
He began growing citrus for export, but a

From page 7
severe freeze in 1890 killed the citrus and
clumps of mangrove in the Indian River
Lagoon. As other settlers arrived, more
crops flourished, notably bananas.
From 1887 to the early 1920s, Orchid
was an incorporated community with its
own post office. When the U.S. Postal Ser-
vice reassigned the area to Vero Beach,
Orchid was dissolved in 1921.
The town was incorporated again in
May 1965, as residents worried that grow-
ing Indian River Shores would annex
northward.
Ambitious plans for development were
soon drafted, and planners readied to
replace the citrus groves and coastal ham-
mock with golf courses and polo grounds.
Tiny Orchid was set to become a boom-
town, but the land boom never came.
By the late 1980s, the main developer
had run into financial trouble, and much
of the town was shuttered. For a time,
town officials worked from a security gate-
house.
A Canadian developer purchased the
town for $20 million in 1994, reviving con-
struction. The golf course, a centerpiece of
the community, was repaired, helping
revive the 300-acre town.
Today, Orchid's population stands at
about 300, and, according to the U.S. Cen-
sus Bureau, it's one of the highest-income
places in the nation.


Points of interest

Disney's Vero Beach Resort: With its
towering gables and gingerbread architec-
ture, this resort was built to recall hotels
that lined the Atlantic coast at the turn of
the 20th century.
But the pool, in the classic Mickey
Mouse shape, is undeniably Disney.
Inside, there are more than 200 rooms,
and cottages dot carefully landscaped
dunes.
The hotel opened in late 1995 as the first
Disney resort outside of Lake Buena Vista
or Anaheim, Calif. the site of Walt Dis-
ney World and Disneyland, respectively.
Disney's Vero Beach Resort is located at
9250 Island Grove Terrace, Vero Beach. It
can be reached at (407) 939-7540.
Environmental Learning Center.
Located on an island in the Indian River
Lagoon, the Environmental Learning Cen-
ter aims to teach visitors about the fragile
ecosystem surrounding them.
With its 51-acre campus and dozens of
exhibits, the nonprofit organization focus-
es on more than 4,000 native species,
some of which are endangered or rare.
Also located on the grounds is the Laura
(Riding) Jackson House, a Florida Cracker-
style home built in 1910 and named for
the noted poet who lived there.
The Environmental Learning Center is
located at255 Live OakDrive, Vero Beach. It
can be reached at (772) 589-5050.
Jungle Trail: Officially, it was known as


State Road 252, but the bare-bones name
belied its frontier reputation. It was, after
all, a route that took a decade to carve
from coastal brush.
First constructed in the 1920s, the Jungle
Trail wends along Orchid Island, from
Winter Beach Road to S.R. A1A.
Originally named the Orchid Trail, the
road became the Jungle Trail when a mer-
chant opened the Jungle Treasure House
gift shop along the path. The name stuck.
In the 1980s, when developers talked
about bulldozing the scenic trail to make
way for a golf course, county residents
revolted and worked to protect the route.
Today, the unpaved road is part of the
National Register of Historic Places.
Pelican Island National Wildlife
Refuge: In 1903, President Teddy Roo-
sevelt established Pelican Island as the
nation's first wildlife refuge.
As milliners demanded elaborate feath-
ers for hats, and birds were hunted to
near-extinction, the refuge was created to
protect egrets and other fowl.
The 5,400-acre refuge includes a three-
acre island and 2.5 acres of the surroWid-
ing Indian River Lagoon.
Pelican Island National Wildlife Refuge is`
located on S.R. A1A on northern Orchid
Island. For more information, call (772)
562-3909.
Windsor. Dressed in a lavender suit,
Prince Charles visited this moneyed
enclave in February 1989, drawing inter-
national attention to the fledgling polo
grounds.


During his daylong visit, the Prince of
Wales whacked a polo mallet, and bottle-
fed a baby chimpanzee as part of a wild
animal demonstration.
Since its royal visit, the upscale, 416-acre
community has gained attention for its
New Urbanist architecture and planning,
as well as homes laid out along narrow,
palm-lined streets.
Windsor Real Estate is located at 10680
Belvedere Square, Vero Beach. It can be
reached at (772) 388-8400.

SEBASTIAN

Sebastian, with the largest population
of any city in Indian River County, was
once known as "the sun porch of Ameri-
ca."
The riverside city is home to more than
18,000 residents, with much of its popula-
tion comprised of "snowbirds," the North-
ern residents whaflock to Sebastian for its
mild, sunnywinters.
Bordered by rivers to the north and east,
the city was first named New Haven.
Later, it adopted the name of the St.
Sebastian River. San Sebastian, as it was
known in the early 20th century, was later
shortened to Sebastian. The city was
incorporated in 1924.
Today, its location along the Indian and
St. Sebastian rivers draws boaters, fisher-
men and kayakers.

VERO BEACH While it's a given

On Dec. 18, 1981, the Vero Beach foot-

Panama City Mosley 10-7. The win
capped an incredible season where the
Fighting Indians went 12-1, losing only

along the way.
"The kids played very. well (that sea-
son)," said Billy Livings, the head coach
of the team, who resigned last year after
26 years at the helm.
"They played very smart smart
enough to not make mistakes."
While the season officially started
against the Jacksonville Fletcher High
School Senators, the foundation for the

McLarty Treasure Museum: Located
on northern Orchid Island, the McLarty
Treasure Museum was built on the camp-
site of the survivors of the 1715 Spanish
Fleet, wrecked ships traveling from Spain
to the NewWorld.
The doomed fleet, loaded with gold and
other valuables, gave the Treasure Coast
its modem-day name. Salvagers still dis-
cover the sunken treasures today.
Part of Sebastian Inlet State Park, the
museum features artifacts recovered from
the fleet and an observation deck that
overlooks the Atlantic Ocean.
The McLarty Treasure Museum located
on S.R. AA, Sebastian. It can be reached at
(772) 589-2147.
Sebastian Inlet State Park: Every year,
more than 500,000 visitors flood Sebast-
ian Inlet State Park, which straddles the
Brevard County-Indian River County bor-
der.
The lush park, situated on the tips of
two barrier islands, is surrounded by the
aquamarine Atlantic on one side and the
lazy waters of the Indian River Lagoon on
the other.
The manmade Sebastian Inlet flows
between the two bodies of water.
In 1971, the state acquired land for the
park Today, it is a favorite spot to boat,
camp, picnic, surf, swim and watch birds.
Sebastian Inlet State Park is located at

reached at (321) 984-4852.

VERO BEACH

In the 19th century, the first settlers
came to grow citrus and pineapple, but by
the 1920s, wealthy Northerners arrived to
build winter homes in this place, which
today bills itself as "where the tropics
begin."
When railroad magnate Henry Flagler
laid down track in 1903, Vero began to
grow. In 1919, it was incorporated as a
city.
Until the Florida land boom of the
1920s, this seaside city was known simply
asVero. "Beach" was added in 1925.
During the coming eight decades, Vero
Beach became known worldwide as a cit-
rus capital. In 1948, it became the spring
training destination for the then-Brook-
lyn Dodgers. This spring, the now-Los
Angeles Dodgers will play a final season
here before relocating to Arizona.
Today, Vero Beach, with about 18,000
residents, clings to its laidback, low-key
roots while other Florida cities boom.

Points of interest

Dodgertown: For 59 years, the boys of
spring have returned to Holman Stadium,
the green jewel in the Dodgertown crown.
Dodgertown, a 61-acre complex of
baseball fields and bungalows, is the his-
toric spring training site for the Los Ange-
les Dodgers.


During the summer months, Dodger-
town hosts the Single-A Vero Beach Devil
Rays of the Florida State League.
Fans climb ramps lined with baseball-
shaped lampposts, past the pines and
palms, into the low bowl of the stadium,
its 6,500 seats separated from players by
only a waist-high, chain-link fence.
Following the 2008 season, the Dodgers
will leave Dodgertown for a soon-yet-to-
be-constructed facility in Glendale, Ariz.
Dodgertown Sports & Conference Center
is located at 3901 26th St., Vero Beach. It
can be reached at (772) 569-4900.
Indian River Citrus Museum: Located
in the downtown Heritage Center, the
Indian River Citrus Museum showcases
the county's world-famous fruit, as well as
the pioneers who first grew it, and the
workers who shipped it across the globe.
The Heritage Center and Indian River
Citrus Museum are located at 2140 14tr
Ave., Vero Beach. They can be reached at
(772) 770-2263.
McKee Botanical Garden: With its
lush,, tropical landscaping, McKee Jungle
Gardens drew more than 100,000 visitors
in the 1940s, making it one of the Sun-
shine State's most popular attractions
long before Walt Disney cleared some
Central Florida swampland.
But by the 1970s, attendance at McKee
had dropped, and the park was forced to
close. The property sat vacant for 20 years,
until a multimillion-dollar renovation
revived the garden.
Six years ago, the historical site was
reborn as McKee Botanical Garden.
Today, the popular attraction is listed on
the National Register of Historic Places.
McKee Botanical Garden is located at
350 U.S. 1, Vero Beach. It can be reached
at (772) 794-0601.
Vero Beach Museum of Art: The Vero
Beach Museum of Art draws visitors to
the shore of the Indian River Lagoon
with its seasonal exhibiti. and noted
permanent collection of works.
In February, the new Alice and Jim
Beckwith Sculpture Park opened. So far,
exhibitions have featured the work of
renowned kinetic sculptor George Rick-
ey.
For the 21-year-old museum, this was
its first outdoor exhibition space, almost
two acres of lush grasses and trees.
The Vero Beach Museum of Art is locat-
ed at 3001 Riverside Park Drive, Vero
Beach. It can be reached at (772) 231-
0707.
Vero Beach Train Station: Henry Fla-
gler built his Florida East Coast Railway
through young Vero in 1893, a crucial
link for local farmers eager to export
their citrus, pineapple and sugarcane. A
decade later, the Vero Beach Train Sta-
tion opened.
The shingle-roofed building was relo-
cated to its current site in 1984.
Three years later, the structure was
added to the National Register of His-
toric Places.
Today, the historic station is home to
the Indian River County Historical Soci-
ety Exhibit Center.
The Vero Beach Train Station is located
at 233614thAve, Vero Beach,

championship with Jefferson Davis
High School.
"When coach Livings arrived with his
young fired-up assistant coaches, they
came into a program that was strug-
gling," said David Carter, a defensive
tackle on the 1981 team.
'At the start of the 1980 season, we
didn't believe in ourselves. What is so
special about the coaches is that they
taught us to believe in ourselves."
The players ascribed to the coaches'
philosophy so intently that the team
captured the District 10 champi-
onship, only to lose in the playoffs.
However, that setback proved to be a
motivating factor for the following
year.
"As soon as we walked off the field
after we lost to Miami Killian, the play-
ers were talking about doing it next
year," said Gary Coggin, the wide
receivers coach on the squad and cur-
rent Indians head coach.
Coach Wayne Griffith, who is cele-
brating his 37th year atVero Beach this
season, knew the 1981 team had the
makings of something special.
"I remember the intelligence of the
kids we had," Griffith said. "Some of
them are doctors, lawyers and dentists
now.
"It was just a matter of it coming
together."


The 1981 campaign began with back-
to-back shutouts of Duncan Fletcher
and Martin County. After falling to
Orlando Evans, the Indians rebounded
to knock off Miami Northwestern 15-6
- a team that featured many players
over 200 pounds.
Miami actually led at the half 6-0, but
Vero Beach tied it and then went ahead
for good when junior defensive line-
man Brian Connelly blocked a punt
and the ball rolled into the end zone for
a safety.
"We didn't have any superstars,"
Connelly said. "We were the little Ras-
cals. We were small.
"You were as good as the guy next to
you. You were as good as the guy
behind you. We were never afraid of
the other team.
"If we stuck together, we could do it.
It was all for one and one for all."
Vero Beach continued its impressive
run, winning three of its next five
games by shutouts. The final one came
against Eau Gallie, a 41-0 shellacking
that once again earned the Indians the
District 10 title.
"We didn't talk about winning," Liv-
ings said. "I said, somebody's got to win
it might as well be us.
"I used the same little gimmick and
the kids bought into it and had fun
with it."
The postseason began with two more
blowouts, withVero Beach first becom-
ing regional champs with a 31-7 win

over Sanford. Next, it was Deerfield
Beach's turn. Quarterback Todd Fennell
opened the scoring by taking it in on
Vero's first possession of the game. From
there, the Indians coasted to a 31-13 win
and the 4A sectional title.
"By the end of the season, they (the
coaches) had really prepared us well,"
said Fennell, who along with Carter and
Connelly are lawyers in the firm Gould,
Cooksey and Fennell inVero Beach.
"We really believed these coaches were
the best in the state. They put us in a
position to win. We started believing
that we could do something special."
With a ticket to the state champi-
onship on the line, Vero Beach faced
Miami Killian. The Indians gained a
measure of revenge by holding on for a
10-6 win.
"It was a good combination of solid
defense, a consistent offense and a good
kicking game," Coggin said.
Despite having an extraordinary sea-
son, Vero Beach was a decided under-
dog in the title game against Mosley.
"They were undefeated," Carter said.
"We were supposed to lose by 30 points.
That team was unstoppable.
"Coach Livings would always down-
play us to the press, but we knew he
believed in us. We believed that the


coaches would find a viay for us to win if
we listened to them and go out and
play"
While the Dolphins had the better
record, the Indians had the home crowd
due toVero's success on the road.
"We had played more away games to
get there (the championship)," Carter
said. "The crowd and the noise were
unbelievable.
"It was a packed house. Someone had
taken red Coke cans and put rocks in the
cans to make noisemakers. You couldn't
hear the linebackers making the play
calls.
"The community rallied around us."
As did the football gods, or so it
seemed. The Indians scored on its first
possession when Eric Barkett booted a
46-yard field goal, which hit the uprights
and bounced in.
Conversely, Mosley's attempt at a 45-
yarder in the second quarter slammed
into the uprights and caromed back
onto the field.
However, Mosley would come back,
driving 64 yards after an interception to
go ahead 7-3 in the third period. It
wouldn't take long for Vero to answer, as
Anthony Simmons took a pitch out from
Fennell into the end zone from four
yards out to recapture the lead.
Holding a slim 10-7 advantage, Vero
Beach sealed the victory by recovering a
Mosley fumble with 1:02 left in the
game.

Hospital marks 75 years


Founder's family looks
back to IRMC's humble
roots

BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer

VERO BEACH The hospital on Old
Dixie Highway, a two-story Spanish-
style building with a mango tree out
back, had 21 beds when Gamett Radin
opened it in 1932.
Her two children, Robert and Maxine,
moved there in the mid-1930s, washing
instruments, folding linens and help-
ing their mother, a registered nurse
from Nebraska. The hospital, housed in
a former hotel that Mrs. Radin bought
for $22,000, was the only one within 70
miles and the first in fledgling Indian
River County.
Today, that hospital has grown into
Indian River Medical Center, which
marked its 75th anniversary on May 12.
As a child, Maxine Hickman-Case,
now 77 and living in Lincoln, Neb.,
shuttled between her grandparents'
home and the hospital, sleeping near a
pot-bellied stove in a bedroom next to
the receptionist desk.
She admired her mother's resolve, for
keeping the hospital open during the
deepest lows of the Great Depression,
and for treating black and white
patients equally at a time when segre-
gation reigned.
"She was a perfectionist by a long
shot," she said of her mother, who died
in 1987.
Growing up in the hospital came with
its own curious rituals for Mrs. Hick-
man-Case and her brother.
Once, as her daughter sat on a gurnmey
and Mrs. Radin read her a story, a doc-
tor strode in and announced that 7-
year-old Maxine's tonsils would have to
come out. She acquiesced, but on one


condition.
'"All right, mama," she recalled. "But I
want a Mickey Mouse coloring book
and a Mickey Mouse watch."
She still has that watch.
"The hospital was my life, yet I would
not be a nurse," she said last week. "I
saw too much."
Her brother, on the other hand, gravi-
tated to medical school. Dr. Robert
Radin, 79, said his mother would
applaud the growth from Indian River
Hospital to IRMC, as long as it main-
tains its "hometown ambience" as it
expands.
Indian River Hospital moved from is
site at Old Dixie Highway and 10"1
Lane following World War II, relocating
to a former Navy base near where Vero
Beach Municipal Airport is located
today.
In 1952, the hospital moved again,
this time to a new building at 25'"
Street and 20th Avenue. It was renamed
"Indian River Memorial Hospital" and
dedicated to the memory of fallen sol-
diers.
Today, the 25th Street hospital serves
as the County Administration Build-
mg.
Though the hospital launched sever-
al renovations and expansions during
the '50s and '60s, it struggled to keep
pace with the county's growth.
In 1971, hospital trustees bought 80
acres near 37u' Street for a new med-
ical complex. After seven years of cost
overruns, labor disputes and delays,
the $21-million Indian River Memorial
Hospital opened in 1978.
"Who can imagine that when Gar-
nett bought that small building that
we'd be seeing this here today?" said
Thomas Segura, chairman of the hos-
pital board of directors.
Last year, the hospital changed its
name to Indian River Medical Center.

Officials see hope amid


signs of economic trouble


Biotech, tourism could
boost local economy
BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Growing
biotechnology industries to the south and
balmy winters that continue to draw sea-
sonal residents could sustain the local
economy during the national real estate
slump, local economic experts said.
Despite a downturn in the real estate
market and an upward tick in unemploy-
ment, these experts remain guarded but
optimistic about Indian River County's
economic well being.
Helene Caseltine, economic develop-
ment director for the Indian River County
Chamber of Commerce, pointed to the
biotechnology industry taking root in
nearby counties. Torrey Pines Institute for
Molecular Studies is building a campus in
Port St. Lucie and Scripps Research Insti-
tute operates a facility in Jupiter.
"We'll have a niche in that industry," Ms.
Caseltine said.
During the last decade, traditional fields,
such as agriculture, citrus and, to a lesser
degree, tourism have declined. But the
manufacturing sector of the Indian River
County economy is holding steady, Ms.
Caseltine said.

Hospital
From page 14
"We are one of the few places left in
the country that has a community hos-
pital left from the very beginning," Mr.
Segura said.
The 335-bed facility is a world apart
from the former Ridgewood Hotel that
Mrs. Radin converted into a hospital in
1932, but its mission remains the
same, her family said.


Downturns in the home-building and
real estate industries is "cause for con-
cern," Ms. Caseltine said, but also a reflec-
tion of the national trend caused by a
building boom, low mortgage rates and
easier loan criteria.
"It's a perfect storm," said Don Santos,
spokesman for the Port St. Lucie-based
Treasure Coast Builders Association.
The effects are exaggerated on the Trea-
sure Coast, Mr. Santos said, because of
fast-paced building that occurred during
the first half of the decade;
New construction is down sharply from
a year ago, Mr. Santos said: "Right now, the
residential home-building industry is in
the doldrums."
He said a Sept 18 decision by the Feder-
al Reserve to cut a key interest rate by half
a percentage point could help reverse the
slump in the long-term.
"We have a long way to go," Mr. Santos
said.
Though some workers from the con-
struction and real estate industries have
sought placement in other fields, econom-
ic officials said they have yet to see wide-
spread layoffs in either industry.
Until about a decade ago, when agricul-
ture dominated the local economy, dou-
ble-digit unemployment rates were com-
mon.
For agriculture and tourism, off-season
months still come with an unemployment
spike.


"That's why she opened this hospi-
tal," said Stephanie White, one of Mrs.
Radin's granddaughters and a labor
and delivery nurse at IRMC. "She fore-
saw the need in the community."
Bonnie Miller, another of Mrs.
Radin's granddaughters, recalls touring
the hospital while it was under con-
struction, following her hardhat-clad


Cliff Partlow/staff photographer
Pocahontas Park's renovation included the return of 'Patriot,' which was named
by students from Mrs. Creech's fifth-grade class at Rosewood Magnet School.


Between 1990 and 2005, local employ-
ment in the education and healthcare
fields soared, according to a study on
employment trends conducted by the
University of Georgia.
During the same period, the study con-
cluded, the number of agriculture jobs
plummeted 42.5 percent.
Indian River and St Lucie counties tied
for the state's second-worst unemploy-
ment rates, according to statistics for July.
Both counties reported an unemployment
rate of 6.6 percent
The figures do not include workers who


grandmother through spaces that
would become operating suites and
patient rooms.
"She would be very humbled by the
recognition we see here today," Mrs.
Miller said on May 12, when about
1,000 people turned out for the hospi-
tal's birthday celebration.
Even as the hospital hopped from


are "under-employed," or who are work-
ing below their skill level or out of their
fields.
Unlike neighboring St. Lucie County,
which is growing with new biotechnology
industries, tourism remains a key piece of
the Indian River County economy.
In the north county, the tourism indus-
try slowed during 2007, said Beth Mitchell,
executive director of the Sebastian River
Area Chamber of Commerce, where
membership also includes businesses in

site to site, Mrs. Radin walked the cor-
ridors, greeting staff members by
name, her granddaughters said. Main-
taining that personal touch, they said,
is a key part of their grandmother's
legacy.
'"As long as you hang on to that
human element, that's what's impor-
tant," Mrs. Miller said.

southern Brevard County."
"Year to year, things are pretty soft," Ms.
Mitchell said.
September is traditionally a tough
month, she said, but finding a benchmark
for the month is difficult because of the
Sept. 11 terrorist attacks in 2001 and dual
hurricanes three years later.
There are bright spots, too.
The median household income for Indi-
an River County was $48,685 for 2006 -
above the national average of $43,851 and
the $48,857 Florida average, according to
U.S. Census Bureau figures.
Tourism remains a powerful engine for
the state economy, and tourism dollars,
which in 2006 accounted for $3.7 billion of
state sales tax revenue,, have also kept
Florida lawmakers from levying a state
income tax.
National media outlets have spotlighted
Vero Beach in recent months.
Earlier this year, MSNBC ran a segment
about high-money visitors flowing north
from South Florida to Vero Beach.
"South Florida is starting to look at Vero
as their Hamptons," Rip Pratt, a Vero
Beach Realtor, told MSNBC. "It's two-and-
a-half hours up the road, but it's a world
apart, the same for the relationship
between Manhattan and the Hamptons
themselves."
In November, a national business maga-


zine named Vero Beach the second-
strongest real estate market in the nation.
The magazine, Business 2.0, examined
five-year growth projections and deter-
mined the nation's 10 strongest markets.
Though the magazine warned that home
prices could stagnate in the short-term, it
foresawlong-term growth.
In January, pop star Gloria Estefan and
her husband, Emilio who own an
oceanfront home in northern Indian River
County are scheduled to open a 98-
room hotel onVero Beach's Ocean Drive.
The upcoming resort, and luxury hotels
such as the Vero Beach Hotel & Club, is
burnishing the reputation of the seaside
city, even as overall Florida tourism holds
flat and other destinations pay more to
attract visitors in droves.
In Sebastian, surrounded by the Indian
River Lagoon and St. Sebastian River, the
water draws tourists who fuel the local
economy, Ms. Mitchell said. So does the
Stick Marsh west of Fellsmere, a man-
made reservoir renowned for its bass fish-
ing.
Even so, Ms. Mitchell said her members
are reporting a 10 to 15 percent slump in
gross receipts compared to September
2006.
But business owners remain optimistic.
"Everyone is looking forward to the next
year," Ms. Mitchell said.
