New Piper incentives could cost taxpayers less


BY WARREN KAGARISE
Staff writer
INDIAN RIVER COUN-
TY New incentives for
Piper Aircraft could total
less than the $16 million
initially offered to the
Vero Beach aircraft manu-

Crowd

shows up

for Black

Friday

BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
VERO BEACH By 4:45
a.m., rio parking spaces
were left at Circuit City.
Shoppers at Best Buy began
lining up the night before.
And at the Indian River
Mall, the promise of a
$1,000 shopping spree
lured hundreds.
At 5 a.m. on Black Friday,
it was open season for bar-
gains.
Before dawn broke on the
busiest shopping day of the
holiday season, thousands
of discount-savvy shoppers
flocked to area retailers,
hoping to score big deals
and doorbuster gifts.
"My daughter dragged
me out of bed," joked Tere-
sa Float of Roseland, as she
considered marked-down
handbags at J.C. Penney.
The department store
opened at 4 a.m., handing
out free Christmas orna-
ments to customers. Within
an hour, lines at cash regis-
ters stretched throughout
the store.
First-time Black Friday
shopper and Vero Lake
Estates resident Melody
Kohlhepp filled her purse
with a stack of sales circu-
lars, and set off for the mall
at 5 a.m. Later, as she sur-
veyed clothing racks at
Sears, she said she works on
her holiday shopping
throughout the year.
"Of course, the kids want
electronics," she said.'


Piper would be offered
$12 million during a
three-year period. State
economic development
officials pledged $20 mil-
lion for the package.
"It gives [Piper] a little
flexibility and it would be
in both their interests and
our interests," said county
administrator Joe Baird,
who worked closely on
the incentive package.


Per the new agreement,
the $12 million would be
paid through a bond or
from available reserves.
An earlier incentive
plan would have paid
Piper $16 million, spread
out in $2 million incre-
ments, over eight years.
Officials from four Indian
River County municipali-
ties agreed to contribute
to the incentive package.


But the Sebastian City
Council deferred a deci-
sion on the incentive
offer.
Piper is also consider-
ing Albuquerque, N.M.,
and Oklahoma City as
locations for its corporate
headquarters and its pro-
posed PiperJet manufac-
turing plant. In October
2006, Piper hired a site
selection firm that cut 60


applicants to the final
three.
Albuquerque will offer
up to $75 million, while
Oklahoma City presented
a $35 million offer,
according to published
reports.

largest private employer

By noon on 'Black Friday,' shoppers at the Indian River Mall had shopped until they dropped. Many of the shoppers
landed in the food court for a lunch break after a hard morning of shopping.


Her husband, Jim, hoped
to score a discounted DVD
player at a big-box retailer,
but when the Kohlhepps
arrived, the merchandise
was picked over.
"Forget Wal-Mart," Mr.
Kohlhepp said. "It looks like
a battle zone."
But the Kohlhepps were
undeterred. Their morning
itinerary included J.C. Pen-
ney, Linens-N-Things and,
if they had the stamina, The
Outlets atVero Beach.
In the Sears electronics
department, where harried
employees tended to shop-
pers eyeing digital cameras


and plasma-screen TVs,
Vero Beach resident Dennis
Harland lamented the
doorbusters.
Earlier, at Radio Shack, he
learned that the Zune MP3
players advertised for
$99.99 sold out in an
instant.
"You used to be able to
get something if you got
there at a reasonable time,"
Mr. Harland said.
On Thanksgiving night,
bargain hunters formed a
line outside the mall by 7
a.m. When the doors
opened at 5 a.m. the follow-
ing morning, 250 people


New commission chair is

part of elite sorority


BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
INDIAN RIVER COUN-
TY As one of only
seven women to serve on
the County Commission
during its 82-year history,
Sandra Bowden is part of
an elite sorority.
For the former elemen-
tary school teacher who
never envisioned a politi-
cal career, the vote that
elevated Mrs. Bowden to
the top commission post
last week was an honor, a
reward for devoting
almost one-third of her
life to elected office.
As the new commission
chairwoman, Mrs. Bow-
den, 63, also became the
first person to lead the
commission, head the
School Board and serve
as a mayor in Indian
River Country.
"I never in my wildest


dreams thought I ever
would be involved in pol-
itics," she said last week.
"But I understood early
on that to make changes,
you have to get involved."
Her political career
stretches from a School
Board term in the early
1990s, through eight
years on the Vero Beach
City Council and, for the
last three years, to the
commission.
"Sandra has done all of
them with a graciousness
that, even if you dis-
agreed, you had a respect
for her," said Ruth Stan-
bridge, a former commis-
sioner and the county
historian.
Each November, com-
missioners elect a chair-
person and vice chairper-
son to direct meetings
during a yearlong term.

appointment, Mrs. Bow-

ored inside, leaving behind
empty soda bottles and,
fast-food wrappers. Some
carried folding lawn chairs.
The first 100 customers
were entered into a drawing
for a $1,000 mall gift card.
Traffic at the mall was
brisk, said mall marketing
director Ursula Gunter.
"We did this last year as
well, and there are many
more people here than last
year," she said.
Indian River Mall has a
policy not to disclose cus-
tomer figures.
Black Friday, nicknamed


because it pushes retailers
into the "black," the color
used to indicate profit, is
the official kickoff to the
holiday shopping season.
Indian River Mall staff
members began planning
for Black Friday in August,
and early-bird shopping
went offwithout a hitch.
The line at Victoria's
Secret snaked past windows
of lingerie-clad man-
nequins. Shoppers at The

Hale Groves reopens

historic landmark

store


BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
WABASSO Beneath a
towering red sign, the
orange juice is once again
fresh-squeezed, the citrus is
ripe and the gift boxes are
ready to be shipped north to
colder climates.
Hale Groves' landmark
store here reopened last
week following a yearlong
renovation. A day before
Thanksgiving, shoppers
lined up for the Indian River
Citrus that Hale Groves
began packing and shipping
in 1947.
"This place is a landmark,
and to see it reopen when a
lot of things are going away,
it's a nice, family feeling,"
store manager Morgan
Burke said.
Before the renovation,


Trish White of Vero Beach
shopped at Hale Groves for
bag-your-own oranges and
fresh-squeezed juice.
"It's nice to have it back,"
she said as shopped for
oranges, an ingredient in a
cranberry sauce she
planned to serve the next
day.
Other customers eyed
orange blossom honey and
candied orange peel, or
flipped through catalogues
of Indian River Citrus and
gourmet items.
Judy Daberkow, a retail
manager for Hale Groves,
anticipated high traffic for
the reopening. Renovating
the historic space was a
challenge, she said.
"How do you take some-
thing so good and make it
just a little bit better?" she

August, researchers
flum Inhubioi Branch Oceanographic Institution began collecting
apple naill egg clutches from Lake Kissimmee. Apple snails are the food
source of di the snail kite, an endangered Everglades bird species.
Here are the numbers so far:

Amount of a grant fiom the South Florida Water Nlanagement District to fund the
program: $100,000

lumber of snails hatched at Harbor Branch so far: 3,000

Number of snails researchers hope to release into the wild: 20.000 juveniles and 1,000
adult.

Researchers hatch Everglades restoration


BY WARREN KAGARISE
StaffWriter
FORT PIERCE In a
remote laboratory at Harbor
Branch Oceanographic
Institution, an effort to
restore the overtaxed Ever-
glades is moving at a snail's
pace.
Development and
drought caused the food
source of an endangered
Everglades bird species to
dry up. Now, scientists want
to deliver relief by restock-
ing the supply of apple
snails.
Researchers at Harbor
Branch Oceanographic
Institution joined the South
Florida Water Management
District and the University'
of North Florida to breed the
snails, a golf-ball-sized mol-
lusk that's the favored meal
of the endangered snail kite.
The crow-sized kites feed
almost exclusively on the
snails.
Restoring the apple snail,


and the snail kite along with
it, is a key part of the $2 bil-
lion Everglades restoration
plan, said Susan Gray, a
water district biologist.
Since August, Harbor
Branch has turned a build-
ing at its aquaculture center
into a snail hatchery, part of
a $100,000 project to raise
apple snails in captivity and
then release them near Lake
Okeechobee.
"You see how small they
are, but they represent such
a huge part of Everglades
restoration," said Melissa
Meeker, a member of the
water district Governing
Board.
Snail kites disappeared
from Lake Okeechobee as
water levels dropped pre-
cariously during the recent
drought. Scientists are hop-
ing that a fresh batch of
apple snails can help lure
the birds back to the lake.
Researchers collected
snail egg clutches from Lake
Kissimmee in August and


October. Since then, more
than 3,000 apple snails have
hatched at Harbor Branch.
Once the first hatchlings
reached maturity, the snails
began laying eggs.
The first generation of
captive-bred snails hatched
in November.
In tanks at Harbor Branch,
the snails snack on romaine
lettuce while scientists
monitor their growth. Har-
bor Branch and the water
district hosted an open
house Nov. 20, showing
onlookers incubators full of
young snails and an enor-
mous plastic tub populated
by breeding adult snails.
Snails at Harbor Branch
continued to lay eggs weeks
after their wild counterparts
stopped breeding, said
Megan Davis, director of the
Center for Coastal Research
at Harbor Branch.
Researchers attribute the
bumper crop of snails to
abundant food and warm
water.


"That has been very sur-
prising to us," Ms. Davis
said.
Despite the success of the
program, drought-related
challenges remain.
Apple snails lay clutches
of eggs on vegetation above
water. When the hatchlings
emerge, they plop into the
water below. With Lake
Okeechobee water levels
more than 5 feet lower than
normal because of the
drought, freshwater marsh-
es along the lake shore are
too dry for the hatchlings.,
Newly emerged snails fall to
the dry ground and die.
At the end of the 14-
month project, researchers
hope to release up to 20,000
juvenile snails and 1,000
adult snails into the Ever-
glades and Lake Okee-
chobee.
"You want to make sure
you have a stable ecosys-
tem," said Ms. Gray, the

REVIEW

Unemployment numbers climb
to No. 3 in state
INDIAN RIVER COUNTY Unemployment in Indian
River County reached the third-highest level in the state
during October, according to the Florida Agency for
Workforce Innovation, the state agency that tracks
employment trends.
During October, the jobless rate climbed to 6.5 percent
- meaning that 7,899 Indian River County residents
were unemployed. The October data also shows a jump
from the 4.4 percent unemployment rate recorded dur-
ing the same period in 2006.
Indian River County trailed Hendry County, which
recorded 8.5 percent unemployment, and St. Lucie
County, which recorded 6.6 percent,
State labor officials attributed the high Hendry County
rate to seasonal declines in agriculture and related
industries.
In Indian River County, the rising unemployment
numbers are attributed to a slowdown in the construc-
tion and real estate industries.
Economists said the state job market continued to
grow.
Based on the latest nationwide data, Florida ranked
third in job growth among the 10 most-populous states,
behind only Texas and California.
"Florida remains the, fourth most-populous state in
the nation and continues to rank third-highest in job
growth nationally, relative to our population," Monesia
T. Brown, director of the Florida Agency for Workforce
Innovation, said in a news release.

Environmentalists donate green
for accreditation

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY New environmental stan-
dards for county government are set to sprout.
Members of the Indian River GreenTeam donated $4,000
to the County Commission last week. In October, commis-
sioners agreed to pursue accreditation as a green local gov-
ernment from the Florida Green Building Coalition. For
Indian River County, accreditation costs will total $4,500.
An initial $500 application fee was also picked up by the
Green Team, and included a $100 contribution from Com-
missioner GaryWheeler.
"We have just begun," said Green Team leader Nancy
Wood, who presented commissioners with an oversized
cardboard check.
For local governments that slash landfill waste, create
incentives for the construction of environmentally friendly
buildings and enact other measures, the Florida Green
Building Coalition awards points.
Green Team members generated money through dona-
tions and sponsorships for the Green Expo, a daylong event
to raise awareness of environmentally friendly practices
and products.
Ms. Wood said both the cities of Sebastian and Vero
Beach were interested in the green certification.
If the cities were certified, "we would be the leader in the
state in green, environmental issues," she said.

Hungry kites pluck the
snails from the water, and
then use their hooked bills


to pull the snails from their
russet-colored shells.
Development and shrink-

kite's population and range,
but the bird was once corn-

Though the kite is endan-
gered in Florida, the species
is not threatened in other
parts of its range, mostly
South America.

signs in the Indian Rivei
Lagoon.
The signs, which were
damaged by storms or dete-
riorated over time, were
replaced near the Wabasso
Bridge. The markers were
repaired after callers report-
ed boats and personal
watercraft speeding
through the manatee pro-
tection zones because the
signs were damaged.
Manatee protection ,
zones have been in place in
Indian River County since
1979. At the Wabasso
Bridge, the protection zone
is regulated as a slow-speed,
minimum-wake area year-
round. But without ade-
quate markers to warn
boaters, the commission
has difficulty enforcing the
rule, according to an FWC
news release.,

Police: Mall
employees used
customers credit
card


VERO BEACH Two
employees of a kitchenware
store are facing grand theft
and credit card fraud
charges after authorities
said they used a customer's
credit card to buy about
$1,300 in store purchases.
Managers at the Comrning-
ware factory store at The
Outlets at Vero Beach con-
tacted the Indian River
County Sheriff's Office last
week, and reported that a
customer who had shopped
there noticed about $1,300
on his credit card of pur-
chases he did not buy.
Now, Patricia Parker, 27,
of the 7401 Palomar St., Fort
Pierce, and Dominique
Bruce, 19, of 455 Eighth
Manor, Vero Beach, are each
charged with grand theft
and fraudulent use of a
credit card.
Ms. Parker told a sheriff's.
deputy that she used the
card to buy $235 worth of
merchandise, while, Ms.
Bruce said she purchased
items totaling $647.
Ms. Bruce was held at the
Indian River County Jail on
$7,500 bond, while Ms.
Parker was held on $5,500
bond. Both women were
released from jail on Nov. 20
after posting bond.

Hale
From page Al


said.
In 2006, Hale Groves announced
a partnership with Southern Ful-
fillment Services and its Wabasso
store closed. When the store.
reopened last week, there were the
usual citrus offerings, but also
fresh produce and expanded lines
of dips, marinades, sauces and
other items.
The updated store will be known


as Hale Groves River Market.
Felix Thomas of Gifford, wearing
a red Hale Groves ball cap, stopped
by for the reopening. Mr. Thomas
worked in the company packing-
house for more than 40 years.
"I used to make the best orange
juice in the State of Florida," he
said.
Hale Groves started 60 years ago
in a rented fruit stand. Owners


Polly and Steve Hale Jr. packed the
citrus in a shed behind their house.
The first Indian River Citrus
shipped by the company went to
friends and relatives.
Customers stopped at their U.S.
1 fruit stand for orange juice, and
the Hales collected addresses for
their mailing list and shipped fruit
gift baskets. Hale Groves also
adopted a slogan, now carried on


the sign at its Wabasso store: "The
freshest and best tasting. Guaran-
teed."
Since its, early, days ,as a fruit
stand, the company has expanded
its offerings through a catalogue
and aWeb site. J
Today, the company emplo' s
more than 600 workers.
Jane Brice, a supervisor who has
worked at Hale Groves for eight


years, manned a cash register last
week as customers sipped free
juice.
"It looks like everyone is really
thrilled that it's open," she said.
For more information and store
hours, call Hale Groves River Mar-
ket at (772) 589-4334 or visit the
Hale Groves Web site at www.hale-
groves.com.

Sticking up for teachers

To the author of the "Teacher's Pay," it does not matter
what you call them.
If it were not for a teacher you would not have a place
for you child to go during the day while you work. Of
course, you would never understand the amount of time
and effort teachers put into their profession. Yes it does
cost money to get any kind of education. You must have
had a teacher who taught you how to read and write and
do math. I know I did and believe you me it was rough,
with sometimes as many as 35 children in a class.
Thanks to people like you there are those who must
think that educators do nothing. Please volunteer in a
public school for a year and see what it is like before your
next Rant-N-Rave. I hope that you do not have children
or grandchildren who want and need an education.
Perhaps you are independently wealthy and did not
need an education to do whatever work you do or do not
do. Before you blast teachers and their salaries, think
about how you came by your education.
Remember, most teachers are happy doing their jobs.
Going north has nothing at all to do with anything; nei-
ther does what an assistant principal does with her or his
money for the people they work with. I suggest you get a
life in the real world.

The economy is getting worse

We have a national debt of over nine trillion dollars
with a trade deficit of over 5 trillion (goods we trade
around world). Only China sells us junk and buys very lit-
tle in return. Instead, they use our dollars to buy one cor-


portion in the U.S. everyday. How much longer can this
go on with our dollar worth seventy-five cents and
falling?
With over 50 percent of our industry moved to foreign
countries (the most recent being Hershey's Chocolate;
laying off 10 thousand workers and moving to Mexico) I
thank the Hometown News for letting us view our opin-
ions and good news shows like Lou Dobbs, Beck, & C
Span on T.V. This once great country must move back
from third-world status.

Don't panic about prices at the pump

Every day there is a consumer, usually at a pump, com-
plaining about the high price of gasoline. If it weren't so
pathetic, it would be amusing. Some have said they can't
afford to feed their family because of the skyrocketing


prices.
One said she is using money from her grandson's col-
lege fund to fill her tank.
Lets get back to reality. If gas jumped 10 cents from last
week, filling your 10-gallon tank, and getting 30 miles per
gallon, you would have spent one dollar more than the
previous week. In going three miles, it would cost an
extra penny (hardly worth stooping over to pick up). I
.don't like the trend, but let's look at the expense of own-
ing a car.
Having the privilege of ownership will cost you at least
$600 a month. Insurance, car payment, tags, and mainte-
nance contribute a great deal more than what we pay at
the pump.
Possibly the hype is that the evening news leading story

Not getting enough sunlight may lead to disorder


Many of us who came
from the north are
familiar with the
winter blues, when the days
get short and gray, the trees
grow bare and everything
seems damp and cold.
For many of us, escaping
the depression that came
with the winter weather was
a major reason for coming
to Florida to live and why
snowbirds continue to come
here each winter for our
best season.
While the winter blues
may not be as severe in the
south, it is still a reality for
many people. Even in
Florida, the days grow
shorter and there are far
fewer hours of sunlight each
day. It can be sunny at 3
p.m. and dark by 4:30 p.m.
Those of us in Florida who
are susceptible to the winter
blues or Seasonal Affective
Disorder, as it is medically


known, need to be alert,
understand the symptoms,
and take action to ease the
distress of the condition.
The first thing you need to
know is that SAD is a
recognized form of depres-
sion that has been linked to
a biochemical imbalance in
the brain. The imbalance is
brought on by shorter days
and lack of sunlight. It is
real.
Some of the symptoms of
SAD include excessive
sleeping; increased appetite
and weight gain (people
often turn to comfort food
and crave starches and
sugars); irritability, difficul-
ties with other people,
especially feelings of
rejection; and a heavy,
leaden feeling on the arms
and legs.
The American Psychiatric
Association (www.healthy-
minds.org) suggests a


SHELLEY KOPPEL
Alive and Well

variety of treatments that
are effective in managing or
staving off SAD.
The first thing to try is
increasing exposure to
sunlight. If possible, take a
walk or arrange an office or
room so that you are
exposed to a window. If you,
work in a cubicle, try.to get
out on your lunch hour. A


walk also decreases stress
and exercise has been found
to help with the symptoms
of SAD.
If your symptoms don't go
away or affect your daily life,
then it's time to seek help. A
professional, trained in the
treatment of depression,
may recommend several
treatments including some
traditional measures such
as talk therapy and anti-
depressants.
However, he or she may
also recommend light
therapy, which has been
very effective in treating
SAD. This involves exposure
to a bright light from a
special fluorescent light box
for between 30 to 90
minutes a day during the
winter. Many people notice
improvement within a few
days, while other may take a
few weeks to see improve-
ment. If there is none at all,


other treatments may be
necessary.
Before investing in a
bright light device, consult
with your physician,
'because people with certain
eye conditions and sensitiv-
ity to light may not be good
candidates for the treat-.
ment.
In addition, someone
should monitor your
progress, to see how you are
feeling and if the treatment
is appropriate for you.
Light therapy devices
range from metal boxes to
portable lamps. They
contain white fluorescent
light bulbs behind a dif-
fuser, so that the light is at a
downward angle, allowing
more to enter the eyes. The
diffuser spreads the light
evenly and absorbs and
filters dangerous ultraviolet
rays. It is extremely impor-
tant to purchase a light box


from a reputable company
that can provide independ-
ent verification that the
devices they sell are free of
ultraviolet rays that can
damage the eyes and skin.
If this disorder is a prob-
lem for you, it's a good idea
to think about a solution
before the days grow shorter
and depression sets in.
That's when it seems hard to
do anything, including
seeking treatment.
You can call 211 and ask
for organizations that
provide mental health
counseling, many on sliding
scales.

Read computer screen from top left


W ere do your eyes
o when a window
opens on your PC?
I ask this question
because of a phenomenon
that I've noticed while
instructing new computer
users.
Usually, the answer is, "I
don't have that," a short
pause and then the
inevitable, "Oh! Here it is!"
Why is it that many new
computer users are unable
to find things that are
present on any given
system, even when the
items in question are right
there on the screen?
The answer lies in where
people's eyes tend to go
when a window opens.
Most of the time, the
users' eyes are hovering
around a 4-inch circle in the
center of the screen. If they
don't see what they are


looking for there, the
response is usually "I don't
have that."
Then, after realizing that
maybe they should have
whatever it is they can't find,
they will broaden the search
a bit, move their eyes
around and locate what
they were missing.
If you are having trouble
finding things on your
desktop, pay attention to
where your eyes go when a
window pops open. If you
tend to focus on a small area
in the center of the window,
try shifting your view to trle
top left of the screen and
work your way to the lower
right through the center of
the window.
This will usually allow you
to see what's what in any
given window in the order
of importance.
By the time you get to the


SEAN MCCARTHY
Compute This

lower right portion of the
window, you will typically
have enough information to
complete whatever it is you
are trying to do.
Have I lost you? Let's look
at it another way.
When someone hands
you a piece of paper or you


open a page in a book,
where do your eyes go?
Well; they certainly don't
hover around the center of
the page (or at least they
shouldn't).
In Western civilization, we
begin reading from the top
left and work our way to the
lower right. If we were to
just focus on the center of
the page, we would end up
just reading a small chunk
of what's written and miss
the beginning and the end.
Without thinking, we
know to start at the top left
of the page and, working
from left to right, line by
line, moving our way down
the page.
We need to develop the
same habit when we use the
computer because the same
rules apply.
Starting in the middle of
the screen and then wan-


during around will leave us
feeling lost and out of
control, and we will most
certainly miss things.
When we look at the top
left corner, we will usually
see an icon representing
whatever program is
running followed by the title
bar. These are good things
to know: the name (and
icon) of the program
running and its title.
The next line we will
usually encounter is a line
of pull-down menus. That's
where we can find all the
commands that are avail-
able within that particular
window grouped again in
logical sections.
All of the filing-related
commands are grouped
under file, all the editing
commands are grouped
under "edit" and so on, with
the final pull-down menu


usually being "help."
They arranged in this way,
so that if people don't find
what they are looking for by
going through each menu
from.left to right, they can
look in the help menu as a
last resort.
Beneath the pull-down
menus your window may or
may not have a row of
buttons. Many programs
use this space to make some
of the commonly used
functions available in the
form of buttons.
For instance, Microsft
Word uses this space to give
you buttons for formatting
text, opening files, copy, cut
and paste functions and
more.
Internet Explorer uses this
area for the back, forward
and home buttons. Hold

through four subsequent
elections and two
decades, Jeffrey Barton
has gone unchallenged
for the post until now.
Republican Ron
Daniels, 47, a Florida
Highway Patrol district
supervisor, announced
his campaign to unseat
the incumbent, saying it
was time for change.
"I want to give the vot-
ers an option," Mr.
Daniels said. Moving
from his 25-year FHP
career to the County
Administration Complex
would be "a natural tran-
sition." Working on cases
as a state trooper has
afforded him an inside
look at the legal system,
he said.
With a $1.2 million
budget, the Clerk of the
Court maintains court
records, processes civil
and criminal court cases,
oversees alimony and


child support payments,
as well as other court-
related fees. Additionally,
the Clerk of the Court
serves as the accountant
for the County Commis-
sion.
Mr. Barton could not be
reached for comment.
As a first-time candi-
date for elected office,
Mr. Daniels is relying on
his experience as an FHP
district supervisor for
Troop L, which includes
the Treasure Coast and
Okeechobee County. He
oversees an eight-mem-
ber team and a $10,000
monthly budget.
While he was consider-
ing his bid, Mr. Daniels
discussed the possibility
with his boss, FHP District
Cmdr. Deryl Loar, one of
four Republicans running
for sheriff.
Earlier this year, Mr.
Barton, a Republican, said
he would seek a sixth term
in 2008. If he enters the
race, he will face Mr.
Daniels in the Aug. 26 pri-
mary election. Voters will
choose a Clerk of the
Court on Nov. 4.


Rants & Raves
From page A6
is that oil is approaching $100 a barrel. It is also the fact
that we pass gas stations every day with a new higher
price. If tomatoes were shown to be three .times what
they were last week (they are), with such a display, we
might be more aware of other factors in our economy.
We're spending our way into oblivion. Both federal
and private individuals are to blame. As to the lady
spending her grandson's college money at the pump; we
need to look at our more serious problems.
Follow all.traffic rules
To the author of "Obey the speed limit," You want to
talk about obeying the law? The law'also says, "Keep
right except to pass." k'
The sign doesn't say, "Keep right except to pass, unless
you're already doing the speed limit," so practice what
you preach.
Just because the speed limit is 70 mph and a motorist
is driving 70 mph, it still doesn't give them thright to stay
in the left lane, yes, the passing lane, and then complain
about people coming too close to their rear bumper
because they refuse to move over.

Hello, my name is Jessica and I had struggled
with weight for a long time and tried diet after diet
and could not lose weight; I was devastated!
When I found Metabolic Research Center I was
skeptical that it would just be another diet that
didn't work! I reluctantly came in with my hus-
band for a free consultation and decided to give it
a try and hear what they had to say; I had nothing
to lose.
Now that I am 52 pounds lighter there is no more
crying at department stores because nothing fits,
I don't look into the mirror disgusted at the way I
look, and I have so much more energy and self
esteem
As a result of my success I decided to become a
consultant at Metabolic Research Center. I have a
strong desire to help other people who are going
through the same thing I went through. I want to
be there to tell them that there is hope and with
help they can do itl I want to see them as they fit
into clothes they thought they would, never get
into again, and to be there to walk with them
through their journey to permanent weight loss

Chair
From page Al
"I'm open-minded and I
do listen to everybody, but
when it comes down to
making the decision, I
know how to make the
decision," she said.
Commissioner Wesley
Davis, the new vice chair-
man, described Mrs. Bow-
den as "a statesman."
"She understands and
has a broad background in
government issues," said
Mr. Davis, a former School
Board chairman himself.

Tackling 'a hugeijob'

Two days into her tenure,
the new chairwoman
talked about the next 50
years.
Planning for new infra-
structure and shoring up
water sources to ensure a
steady supply in the future
must begin now, Mrs. Bow-
den said.
"This is a huge job, this is
the largest job I've been
involved in," she said. "The
decisions are huge and
have long-term impacts."
Though the chairperson
largely has the same pow-
ers as other commission-
ers, he or she can use the
post to draw attention to
favored causes. Outgoing
Chairman Gary Wheeler
championed charter gov-
ernment from the post,
while former Commission-
er Caroline Ginn spear-
headed the effort for new
county offices.
With plans to emphasize
economic development,
Mrs. Bowden wants to
encourage entrepreneur-

businesses, and continue
the aggressive effort to
retain Piper. With about
1,000 employees, the air-
craft maker is the largest
private employer in the
county.
"We really do need to
branch out," Mrs. Bowden
said, suggesting the cre-
ation of a blue-ribbon
panel to brainstorm ways
to promote economic
development.
Preserving agricultural
and undeveloped land is
another priority. This year,
commissioners took flak
after they spent more than
$23 million for develop-
ment rights on two parcels
of land: the 1,585-acre Pad-
gett Branch property and
the 462-acre Sexton family
ranch. Three years ago, vot-
ers approved a $50 million
bond to pay for environ-
mental purchases., About
$14 million remains.
Mrs. Bowden said it was
unlikely that the commis-
sion would ask voters to
approve another bond in
the near future.
"I look at the county's
money as important as if it
were my own," she said.
The former teacher also
views her role as an oppor-
tunity to educate. Mrs.
Bowden wants young peo-
ple to consider govern-
ment as an opportunity for
public service.
"Government is yours,"
she said. To that end, Mrs.
Bowden invited school
groups to tour the County
Administration Complex,
which opened in August.
And, mindful of her singu-
lar place in local history,
she wants to serve as a role
model for women consid-
ering elected office.
"There are very few
women in the history of
the community, over the
long haul, who have
served," she said.
After her fellow commis-
sioners elected her chair-
woman, Mrs. Bowden
received a message from
someone who had been
there before.
"Welcome to the club!"
offered Alma Lee Loy, who,
in 1968, became the first
woman to serve as a com-
missioner. She served as
the first female chair-
woman during the '70s.
"I couldn't resist" send-
ing the note, Ms. Loy said
later, describing the new


chairwoman as "extremely
qualified."
"She has demonstrated
leadership capacities in
the other positions she has
served," Ms. Loy said.

A path to power

In August 1987, then-
Gov. Bob Martinez tapped
Mrs. Bowden to fill a
School Board vacancy. As
the '88 election
approached,. Mrs. Bowden
decided to seek the seat for
a full term. When she
announced her bid, a
friend told her to prepare
for the attacks that accom-
pany a political campaign:
"You need to get some alli-
gator skin."
"That was some of the
best advice I ever got," Mrs.
Bowden said last week.
"And it was the simplest
advice."
During her time on the
School Board, the district
began planning Sebastian
River High School, which
opened in 1994. The board
also set out to improve
conditions for disabled
students.
"The school system has
to serve all types of chil-
dren, and they do a good
job in our community,"
Mrs. Bowden said.
After serving as chair-
woman during the early
'90s, Mrs. Bowden left the
School Board at the end of
her four-year term. She fig-
ured she was done with
politics.
But by 1998, citizens
asked her consider run-
ning for the City Council.
Eventually, Mrs. Bowden
spent eight years as a
councilwoman, becoming
the first woman to serve
two terms as mayor.
Controversy erupted
during her time on the
council, as negotiations for
a charity concert by pop
star Gloria Estefan col-
lapsed, and a builder eyed
the Lost Tree islands for
development.
The key to dealing with
criticism, Mrs. Bowden
said, is to avoid taking it
personally.
"That is one thing I've
learned over time: Call it
like it is, do the very best
you can and don't be
afraid," she said.
Local officials success-
fully lobbied the state to
prevent development on

the Lost Tree islands,
which dot the Indian River
Lagoon near Vero Beach.
Three years ago, when
Ms. Ginn, her mentor,
decided to retire, Mrs.
Bowden entered the
Republican primary for the
District 5 commission seat,
and then won the post that
November. With her seat
up for election next year,
Mrs. Bowden has not
decided whether to run.
Bob Solari, a former Vero
Beach councilman, is seek-
ing the post.
For now, Mrs. Bowden
spends her days reading
briefing books in prepara-
tion for upcoming com-
mission votes, and fielding
questions from residents.
She prides herself on
accessibility, and her home
phone number is printed
on her business cards.
"You never have time to
catch your breath," she
said. "There is always
something on the agenda."

Out of the frying pan

After teaching third- and
fifth-graders at brand-new
Palm Bay Elementary in
the late 1960s, Mrs. Bow-
den and her husband, Bob,
moved from Brevard Coun-
ty to Vero Beach.
Mr. Bowden, 66, runs
Bowden Groves, growing
the Indian River Citrus that
put Florida on the map. To
avoid potential conflicts of
interest, the company does
not grow citrus in Indian
River County.
Both of the Bowdens'
children graduated from
Vero Beach High School.
Their daughter, Deborah,
36, is a reporter for the Fox
affiliate in Tampa, while
their son, Rob, 33, works
with his father at the family
citrus company.
"It's a simple life, it's hard
work, but it's been a joy,"
Mrs. Bowden said.
Both Bowdens are alum-
ni of Florida Southern Col-
lege, and they remain close
to their Polk County roots.
Mrs. Bowden cites her
father, Floyd Lay, as the
strongest influence on her
life. Mr. Lay, a former
leader of the Florida High
School Athletic Associa-
tion, taught her "hard work
is good work."
Married to her high-
school sweetheart, Mrs.
Bowden is up at 5:30 every
morning to cook breakfast.
To unwind, she tends to
her prized orchids, and
reads or travels when she
can find the time.
She approaches her
political career with the
sensibilities she gained
from running a household.
"I am just your friend
and neighbor," she said.
"I'm the mother out of the
kitchen."

Falling in love with Mount Kilimanjaro


his summer I
climbed Mount
Kilimanjaro, but I
had fallen in love with it a
long time ago.
It happened on my first
trip to Kenya, in Amboseli
National Park, at the base
of the mountain.
I'd just finished leading a
trip to Egypt. Some people
decided to extend their
stay and travel with me to
Kenya on safari.
Having arrived in Nairobi
after a short flight from
Cairo, our group headed
first to Tsavo National
Park. It was about a three-
hour drive over moderately
bumpy roads. I remember
people complaining and
thinking to myself, "You
haven't seen anything yet."
Kenya's terrible roads are
legendary, although the
present government is .
trying to improve them.
We soon arrived at our
comfortable lodge, Kilagu-
ni.
After lunch and a rest, we
gathered for a late after-
noon game drive during
which we saw zebras,
giraffes, gazelles, baboons
and more.
Next, we drove to a lake
filled with hippos. We
watched them swim from
an underwater observato-
ry.
Eventually, we headed
back to the lodge for
dinner. As we congregated
on the porch, we kept our
eyes on Kilaguni's famous
watering hole. At sunset,
our guide, Gregory, spotted
a leopard drinking. We
watched it for the longest
time, until we could only
see its eyes glowing in the
dark.
The next day, we headed
to Amboseli over back
roads that few ever get to
see. It was beautiful. As we
turned one corner, we got
our first glimpse of the
mountain in the distance.
At 19,340 feet. and Africa's
highest peak, Mount
Kilimanjaro was breathtak-
ing. To make things better,
a lioness and her cubs
crossed the road in front of
us. We got some great ,
photos.
Soon we arrived at
Amboseli Serena Lodge,
our home for the next two
nights. This lodge is built
in a wet, wooded oasis,
which is refreshing,
because most of Amboseli
is so dry. The lodge has a
colorful African bush feel
to it. The rooms are lovely,
decorated with bold
fabrics and beadwork from

drive. There was so much
to see and always within
sight of MNunt Kiliman-
jaro.
We saw countless ele-
phants, giraffes and zebra,
plus hippos, water buffalo,
wildebeest, impala,
gazelle, wart hogs and
more.
As the sunset turned the
sky pink and orange, we
saw families of elephants
walking home in a single
line, framed by the moun-
tain. There were many
fabulous photo opportuni-
ties, but my favorite was of
a lone hippo walking
toward the mountain at
day's end.

Secure savings


From racing cars to sky,-
diving, baby boomers are
an adventurous bunch
when it comes to recreL
national activities; but when
it comes to investing and
planning for the future Bob
and Betty Boomer are much
more conservative)
In fact, in a 2006 poll by
the National Association of
Variable Annuities, more
than 30-percent of respon-
dents would not put any
money into stocks, and 64-
percent would not put
more than 30-percent of
their money into equities.
Even the youngest of the
boomers surveyed insist
their investments have to
be secure, with more than
50-percent saying they
would not put more than
30-percent of their money
into stocks.
So how is a savvy but safe
investor supposed to
ensure an ample retirement
income?
It turns out that financing
your retirement isn't so dif-
ferent from the way you

ALAN POLACKWICH
Financial Columnist

planned for special pur-
chases when you were a kid
- by saving. Whether you
saved your allowance and
ice cream money in a
ceramic pig or collected.
coins in a glass jar, chances
are someone taught you
early on that your money
was safer under the protec-
tion of your friendly, local
banker. From that point on
you probably had. a dog-
eared navy blue passbook
where you recorded the


money you deposited from
your paper route or
babysitting job.
Now that you're older,
stocks, bonds, real estate
and collectibles may seem
like sexier ways to accumu-
late wealth; but in your
heart you probably still
know that the safest way to
save is with the security of a
bank. There is something to
be said for the comfort and
security of that FDIC (Fed-
eral Deposit Insurance Cor-
poration) logo on the bank
door, putting your mind at
ease and telling you that
your money is safe.
Far from being just the
place you head for everyday
transactions like checking
and savings accounts, start-
ing a Holiday Club, getting
a notary's signature or
sending a money order,
your local bank is a verita-
ble treasure trove of invest-
ment ideas that will help
you use your money wisely
and ensure it's there when
you need access to it.
Ask your banker to help


you select the best invest-
ment vehicles for you based
on how much flexibility you
need, the interest rate you
want, and how long you
want to invest your money.
You're in the driver's seat
with your local bank, and
you still get all the benefits
of the guidance of trusted
banking professionals to
help you make informed
decisions.
Whether you opt for a CD,
money market account, or
an IRA, your local bank will
help you find the best rate
to help grow your money
without raising your heart
rate; and will make sure
you're not penalized if you
need to gain access to that
money sooner than origi-
nally expected. In no time
at all you'll be enjoying the
benefits of compounded
interest without losing
sleep every time the stock
market hiccups.

Orchids make great holiday gifts


SA Then looking for a
\/\/ great holiday gift,
V why not give a
living gift of color?
One plant you should
consider is the colorful gem
known as the orchid.
Orchids are truly amazing
plants. Many people think
they are difficult to grow,
but actually the opposite is
true. Orchids are no more
difficult to grow then many
flowering annuals. Orchids
simply need the basic plant
essentials: light, water,
fertilizer and air.
The flowering cycle of the
orchid will vary from
variety to variety, but in
general, they will bloom
from one to four weeks.
Under ideal conditions, up
to six weeks is not out of the
question.
Orchids are unique plants
because that they do not
grow in soil. In fact, if you
try to plant an orchid in
soil, it will mean most
certain death. Orchids need
to be planted in special
bark mixes.
If you place your orchids
outside under a tree, they
do not need any planting
medium at all. The plants
will attach themselves to
the tree and obtain all of
their nutrients from natural
rainwater and air. This is
how orchids grow in the
wild. If you want to grow a
prize orchid, this is the way
to go.
For many people, growing
orchids outside is out of the
question, but you can still
grow orchids inside or on a
porch with excellent

results.
If you choose to raise
your plants inside, find a
bright windowsill or an
area that is as close to a
natural light source as
possible.
Usually when you pur-
chase a plant, it will already
be in a container with the
appropriate planting
medium. However, you
may want to transplant
your flower in a more
decorative pot or it just
might need to be put into a
larger container.
In this case, you can use
either an appropriate bark
mix or decorative stones.
Either of these materials will
allow the roots to stay
aerated enough so they will
be able to breathe. The roots
will also need good
drainage. One of an orchid's
worst enemies is too much
water. Water the plants
completely about once a
week or so. Always allow
them to dry before watering
again. Do not over water.

port group which will meet

ation offices, located at, 777

month, from 6:30 to 8 p.m.
Family members and loved.
ones' are also welcome to
attend. For more inforni- '
tion, call the MHA at (772),`


Once your orchid has
bloomed out, the next step
is to get them to re-bloom at
a later time. In order for
orchids to bloom again, they
need a 10-degree tempera-
ture difference between the
day and night temperature.
You can either do this by
setting your air conditioning
system accordingly or
placing the plant on a porch
where the temperature
difference will happen
naturally. This trick can
mean the difference
between a plant that has
green leaves or a plant that
will treat you to a rainbow of
color.
Orchids are not heavy
feeders, but when you do
feed them, they will require
a special food. Find a mix
that is specially made for
your plants. A fertilizer with
the numbers 20-10-20 will
do an excellent job. Feed
plants once a week with a
weak solution of the fertiliz-
er.
Orchids need an ample
amount of humidity in order
to thrive. If the humidity is
below 50 percent in your
home, the plants will not do
well. You can alleviate this
problem by running a
humidifier near the plant
during the normally dry
winter months.

Are you giving your lawn the correct


amount of water?


A Though Florida gets
A an average of 52
nches of rain a year,
the rain is not evenly
distributed because about
70 percent of rain falls
during the summer.
Due to this and other
factors, there are times
when you need to irrigate
the landscape to keep it
healthy.
The University of Florida
recommends applying one-
half to three-fourths inch of
water to your lawn. This
amount gives your lawn the
right amount of water it
needs without wasting it.
But do you know how
much water your sprinkler
system is applying?
Knowing this amount will
ensure your lawn is getting
the correct amount of
water along with using it
efficiently. Turfgrass
researchers from the
University of Florida
recommend the following
steps to calibrate your
irrigation system:
*Collect five to 10 con-
tainers that are 3 to 6
inches in diameter. These


vides the necessary equip-
ment, and club members
will provide instruction. For
more information, call
Ernie Henzler at (772) 569-
8111.

Jamaican restaurant beats


odds in Fort Pierce


BY SAMANTHA JOSEPH
Staff writer
FORT PIERCE As she
gets ready for her third
anniversary brunch cele-
bration, a Fort Pierce
restaurateur breathes a sigh
of relief.
Diana Bennettt has seen
more than a dozen local
restaurants shut their doors
since she opened Country
Style Jamaican Cuisine in
2004 in a stand-alone build-
ing on U.S. 1.
"I stopped counting at
15," she said, as she served
up a bowl of glazed carrots
with a hint of cinnamon.
But as she exits the "belly
up period," the first 36
months that restaurant
owners say determine
whether a business thrives
or flops, Ms. Bennettt cred-
its her faith, loyal staff and
recipes from her birth coun-
try in the Caribbean.
"The key has been to dis-
tinguish what's authentic
from what's not," she said.
And at Country Style
Jamaican Cuisine, Ms. Ben-


nettt balances the right tex-
tures and flavors to suit the
palette of her varied client
base half of which are
non-Caribbean to offer a
taste of the islands.
The T-bone steak, for
instance, is grilled in a
sauce of Red Stripe, the
most popular Jamaican
beer, or served with fresh-
ground peppercorn. The
jerk pork, which is smoked
on an open fire, is served
hot and spicy or sweet and
sour.
"Being Jamaican, I know
exactly what it's supposed
to taste like," Ms. Bennett
said.
She is especially proud of
the jerk chicken, a customer
favorite, probably because
the aroma is the first thing
that greets diners.
"That's a real Jamaican
dish for you," she said.
And it's this authenticity
that accounts for the steady
stream of diners. The vast
majority of business -
about 95% of the restau-
rant's clients comes from
word-of-mouth referrals,

Ms. Bennettt said.
Last month, for instance,
the restaurant hosted a
group of 32 diners from a
local church. About 20 of
them were first-time visi-
tors.
"Loyalty, most of all, and
our commitment to our
customers I think that's
what makes a difference,"
she said.
Two employees in partic-
ular have been especially
loyal. Head cook Betsey
Hill-Suqie has worked at the
restaurant since before its
official opening. She and
server Matt Phinn have
both voluntarily worked
long hours when the restau-
rant couldn't afford to hire
other staff, Ms. Bennett
said. "I have to give them all

ONGOING EVENTS
*Inspired Art: A Magical
Journey through Oriental
Rugs" has been making a stir
with the art collectors of Veto
Beach. This uniquely creative
artistic program .boasts 30
artists from Indian River and

pet design to inspire them in
producing their own visual
art in a medium of their
choice.
Presented by The Cultural
Council of Indian River
County in association with
Falasiri Oriental Rugs and
Pointe West of Vero Beach,
the final designs of "Inspired
Art" are being showcased at
several venues in Indian River
County Dec. 2 through Jan. 19
when they will be auctioned
to the highest bidders.
Art lovers are invited to
attend the various communi-
ty exhibitions of "Inspired
Art" beginning Sunday Dec.

Jamaican


From page B3
key ingredient in a tradi-
tional Jamaican breakfast,
typically sautded with cod-
fish, and breadfruit, served
roasted.
Also featured are a broad
selection of vegetarian
choices a rare sight at
many Caribbean eateries,
where meat dishes often
dominate menus.
Country Style Jamaican
Cuisine's "meatless tasties"
include steamed calaloo, a
spinach-like vegetable
sauteed in garlic, onions
and tomatoes.
And diners can elect to
have veggie chunks curried,
sweet and sour, brown-
stewed or run-down style,
with coconut milk. There's
also a daily chef's veggie
special.
On a recent Tuesday, the
soup of the day was split
pea, rich and hearty, with
pumpkin and chunks of
fresh vegetables, including
carrots and potatoes. The
featured dessert is a rich
bread pudding with a warm
bourbon sauce.
"Oh my goodness," one
diner sighs as she tastes the
sweet. "That's delicious."
Couple the food with the
soft reggae music playing in'
the background, and Fort
Pierce diners don't have to
travel far to experience the
island.
Birds-of-paradise flowers,
tropical prints, pastels,
wood sculptures, a tank of
tropical fish, palm trees and
bamboo decor help create
the ambiance. The over-
head fans have a finish like
woven straw, and smooth
river stones fill small cen-
terpieces.
It's a mix of down-home,
casual island style and a
slightly dressed-up atmos-
phere. Merlot seems just as
at home on the bar menu as
the "reggae mango juice"
and sorrel, made from the
petals of a hibiscus plant
steeped with ginger.
'1 didn't want to be too
formal," Ms. Bennett said.
"I want people to feel com-
.fortable."
It's the same attitude that
lets her and her staff move
seamlessly from private


art items. The final initial bids
secured during the rolling
silent auction will later be the
starting bid on auction day.
Dress in "garden Party Chic"
and enjoy the "Trilogy of,
Inspired Art" events culmi-
nating at Poinie West on Sun-
day, Jan. 20. Begin the morn-
ing at 10:30 a.m. with the art
preview and brunch buffet.
The auction will begin at
11:30 a.m. with Auctioneer
George Blythe. Concluding
the auction, all attendees will
be escorted to the Hospitality
Tent at the Pointe West Event
Field for a 2 p.m. polo match,
special half-time presenta-
tion and complimentary
champagne and sweets.
Event admission is $50.
Deadline for reservations is
Jan. 15, 2008.

to small catering jobs.
The business has seen its
share of adversity,, she said,
but it's also come a long
way.
Two days after it opened,
hurricanes Frances and
Jean hit the area. Blown
away was the $7,000 Ms.
Bennettt spent on advertis-
ing and promoting her
business, as residents were
more preoccupied with,
rebuilding after the natural
disasters, than dining out.
Even when she chose the
site at 3222 South U.S. 1,
friends warned her about
the spot, which had had'
high turnover.
"If you had seen inside
here, it was like a cave," she
said. "It was the ugliest
thing I'd ever seen."
But Ms. Bennettt was
unfazed. It was the same
story she'd heard when she
and her mother, Ethel Stew-
art, opened their first ven-
ture in Queen'sVillage, N.Y.,
16 years ago. Today, that
restaurant, also called
Country Style Jamaican
Cuisine, is a thriving busi-
ness with two spin-off loca-
tions.
"A restaurant is your
pride," she said. "It reflects
you.
The restaurant features a
private dining room for
business meetings, lunch-
eons, prayer breakfasts or
groups that want privacy. It
has a 110-person seating
capacity.
To mark its third anniver-
sary, the restaurant intends
to serve brunch from 8:30
a.m. to 2:30 p.m.. It will fea-
ture its new executive chef,
Delroy Henry, formerly of
Kristi's on the Ocean.
Country Style Jamaican .
Cuisine is open from 11
a.m. to 9 p.m. on Mondays
to Thursday and 11 a.m. to
10 p.m. on Fridays. On Sat-
urdays the restaurant opens ,
at 8:30 a.m. to serve a tradi-
tional Jamaican breakfast. It
closes its doors at 9 p.m.

HININI aENTERTIlNMENI


Orient
From page BI


Vero Beach artist Mark
Wygonik, chairman of this
event.
"Twenty years ago I was
part of an arts organization
in Vero, which did off-beat
art projects and exhibits.
One of our board members
worked with Mr. Falasiri and
approached us with this
idea," Mr. Wygonik said.
He explained that the orig-
inal show idea was to get 11
artists from each of Indian
River and Brevard counties
to chose a rug and "interpret
it in any medium they
wished."
This year's event marks the
20th anniversary of that ini-
tial effort. Artists enlisted the
interest and support of The
Cultural Council of Indian
River County.
"We said 20 years is com-
ing up so let's revisit this
again and expand it. We
tried to get as many of the
original artists from 20 years
ago involved and we have
six," Mr. Wygonik said.
Thirty artists in a wide
variety of media styles are
represented this time and
include artisans who paint,
do silk batik, make jewelry,
metal sculpt, fashion
stained glass, fire ceramics,
work with fibers and take
photographs.
Of all the art forms repre-
sented in this year's Inspired
Art show, perhaps one of the
oldest art forms is the rug
itself. Oriental rugs have
been hand-woven for cen-
turies using traditional
methods and symbolic pat-
terns.
Mr. Wygonik was one of
the original artists partici-
pating in the show 20 years
ago. He noted he has "been
an artist all my life in both
commercial and fine art"
and likes to work with a vari-
ety of materials including
found and recycled objects
as well as utilizing laser and
jet printing techniques. He'
thanked Mr. Falasiri for
being "so helpful" with the
project.
"I couldn't pass up the
opportunity to do this again.
It has been a fascinating and


educational experience.
We've had many discussions
about the rugs with Mr.
Falasiri and we artists edu-
cated ourselves about the
Middle East and the Orient
although we tend to forget
about the politics of those
regions and look at the art as
the thread that connects us
all."
Mr. Wygonik's enthusiasm
is shared by other partici-
pating artists who found an
Oriental rug makes a unique
subject matter.
Vero Beach artist Dawn
Mill primarily paints land-
scapes in acrylics and water-
colors. But she found that a
rug can indeed serve as
inspiration to create a differ-
ent type of painting.
"This has just been a fabu-
lous effort. The rugs are so
gorgeous and I never
thought I could pick just one
- I wanted them all!" she
said.
Despite the difficulty of
choosing one rug to inter-
pret in her work, Ms. Mill
noted that one carpet in
particular "seemed to draw
me to it and I kept coming
back to it and decided this
was the rug for me."
Ms. Mill said that the rug
itself was not was she origi-
nally thought she would
choose. She did note, how-
ever, that it was an old rug
with amazingly "beautiful,
bold colors."
"It was not my precon-
ceived idea but the rug itself
inspired something differ-
ent. The piece I did is prima-
rily a landscape," she said.
Ms. Mill said she thor-
oughly enjoyed the freedom
of creating "anything I want-
ed to do" and appreciated
the creativity and variety
used by her fellow artists.
"It was fun. This is one of
our biggest efforts as The
Cultural Council and I'm
proud to be a part of it," Ms.
Mill said.
Metal fabricator James
Nevins echoed her enthusi-
asm.
Despite having suffered a
serious neck injury in an
auto accident months ago,

HININ l fRENIRTHINMEM I


Marvin Hamlisch: A legend brings


his songs and stories to the Lyric


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer
Composer Richard
Rodgers is one of only two
people to win Emmy, Oscar,
Tony and Grammy Awards
as well as a Pulitzer Prize.
The other is composer
Marvin Hamlisch.
The distinguished musi-
cian brings his songs and
stories to the Lyric Theatre
on Dec. 10. In a telephone
interview, he spoke about
his career and about Barbra
Streisand, with whom he has
had some of his greatest suc-
cesses.
At seven, he became the
youngest person ever
accepted to the Juilliard
School and he had his first
hit at 21, the song, "Sun-
shine, Lollipops and Rain-
bows," sung by Lesley Gore.


He said that having his talent
identified so early had been
an advantage.
"I knew I couldn't be a
physicist and I didn't have
the ability to play center
field for the Yankees," he
said. "You tend toward
something you have a talent
for. The only time I felt it was
difficult was when I was
younger, and I realized I
wasn't out playing ball
because for those extra cou-
ple of hours, you have to be
at the piano. As I got older, I
realized it was a trade off."
Mr. Hamlisch met Barbra
Streisand when he was assis-
tant to the vocal arranger for
"Funny Girl," in which she
starred.
"She's a perfectionist," he
said. "She gets bad press.
because she wants it to be
perfect, which I think is a


good thing. There's a reason
she's the best. She's blessed
with a great voice and ear
and great musical instincts.
People have gotten so much
joy from her. Every 10 years
or so, our paths cross and we
have a great success."
Among those .successes
were 1973 Academy Awards
for the score and song to the
film "The Way We Were,"
which started Ms. Streisand
and Robert Redford.
On the evening he won
those Oscars, he also won an
Oscar for the adaptation of
Scott Joplin's ragtime music
for "The Sting," becoming
the first person to win three
Academy Awards in one
night. He won two Emmy
Awards in 1994 for Ms.
Streisand's television spe-
cial, "Barbra Streisand: The
Concert."


"A Chorus Line," for which
he won a Tony Award and
Pulitzer Prize, was his great-
est Broadway success. The
. ground-breaking show,
which opened in 1975, told
the story of dancers strug-
gling to make it in the the-
ater. 'It won nine Tony
Awards and ran for more
than 6,000 performances.
"(Director) Michael Ben-
nett called me. I'd just won
an Oscar and he said to
come back to New York. I
had faith in his brilliance. It
was a lot of work, with two
steps forward and one step
back."
Mr. Hamlisch is at work on
another show, but says that
the theater has changed.
"It's a real big business," he
said. "The shows cost a for-

'Peter Pan' is


high-flying fun


BY SHELLEY KOPPEL
Entertainment writer


*' Brooke Stone knows that
' she has big shoes to fill.
As Peter Pan, she follows
in the footsteps of Mary
Martin, Sandy Duncan and
Cathy Rigby in a role tradi-
tionally played by a woman.
She and the cast of "Peter
t Pan: The High Flying Musi-
c cal," comes to the Sunrise
Theatre on Dec. 6 and she
0 spoke by phone recently
- about the tradition she con-
. tinues.
.': "I am honored to play the
part," she said. "I saw Cathy
Rigby in "Peter Pan" when I
U was 11 and I always wanted
'' to play it. It looked like it
was out of my reach and
then my agent sent me on
the audition. It was a really
good match. As I prepared,
I did a lot of research on the
life of (writer) J.M. Barrie. I
have to keep in mind I play
a little boy. I stay focused on
who rather than what he
l* was,. focused on the mis-
chief and the fun. He tried
to push the line, to see how
far he could go."
The 23-year-old per-
L former says the role allows
o her a lot of freedom.
"It allows me to have fun,"
- she says. "It's silly and
& funny. I can do whatever I
" want and not grow up. It's
: made easier by having a
[ wonderfully talented cast,
and I created my character
in relation to them."
Members of the audience
have the opportunity to let
go of their inhibitions, as
well, in part of the show in
r which the audience is asked
to participate.
. Ms. Stone teaches them
to crow and asks for their
help as she struggles to
believe.
"It's a family show," she
said. "There's something for
everyone. The kids love the
silliness and the fun. There
are adults getting into trou-


ble and the audience goes
along for the ride. The mes-
sage is that it's okay to never
grow up. Everyone should
grow up in their own time.
You should allow yourself
the freedom to have fun.
When my dad, who sits at a
desk all day, saw the show,
he thought it was so much
fun to let himself go. He said
he was crowing with every-
one else and that he got
tricked into being free."
There are many versions
of "Peter Pan," including the
Disney movie, and Ms.
Stone wants people to know
that this production is a
mixture of the new and the
traditional.
"There's a lot of music
and dance," she said.
"There are some different
numbers and some tradi-
tional. It's very recogniza-
ble and a little, different,
too."
The actress does, indeed,
fly, and she says that it's
been a learning process

ello, smart shop-
pers. We celebrated
mom's 99th birthday
and granddaughter Zoe's:
first birthday as well as this
Thanksgiving. What a mad-
house.
Today, it's all about
leftovers. Place some
stuffing and gravy in small
zippered freezer bag and
tuck them in a large bag
with turkey. Then, you'can
just take it out of the freezer
and thaw. You'll have
dinner in no time. j
Another great quickly
dinner for those leftovers is
my version of curry. ,
After that turkey frame is
cleaned, let's make soup.
Many make turkey soup
just like chicken soup, but
take my word for it, once
you've tried it my mom's
way, you'll never like it any
other way.
Tiny meatballs and
noodles make it a one-dish
meal. It's a kid's favorite
and, according to my
grandson, Addison, has
magical healing powers.
He's 18 now, but from the
time he was a little tyke, an
upset stomach, a cold, a
headache, a scraped knee,
even a burned finger would
surely get better if only I
would make him some
turkeyy soup."

TURKEY SOUP,
ITALIAN STYLE
To make soup, nothing
beats a pressure cooker.
The soup will take 1/2 hour
compared to two hours in a
pot.

1 turkey frame
1 large onion, 3-inches in
diameter, peeled and
sliced
3 large stalks celery with
leaves, cut up
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoons black
pepper
2 tablespoons chopped
fresh parsley or 1 table-
spoon dried
Half of an 8-ounce can
tomato sauce (adds nice
color, very little flavor)
6-quart stock pot or
pressure cooker
Wash turkey frame,
remove traces of skin and
stuffing. If the turkey frame
is very large, you might
have to do this in two
batches. (Leftovers freeze
great.)
Place all ingredients in
the pot and fill two-thirds
with water. Cook two hours
in pot or as instructed with
pressure cooker. Pour soup
into large colander that has
been placed over a large
container.
Let cool. Remove meat
from bones and add to
soup.
Too much meat? Freeze it
for a casserole.
Mash vegetables with fork
or hands andadd to soup.
Return soup to pot and
bring to a boil. Drop raw
baby meatballs into boiling
broth. Cook about 1.0
minutes. Chill soup. When
ready to serve, remove
congealed fat. Bring soup
to a boil, add medium-size
noodles that have been
cooked halfway and cook
until tender. Serve with a
sprinkling of grated Italian
cheese.
Note: My family always
used Mueller's Kuluski
noodles for this soup.


Although not easy to find,
they're sure worth the
search. I have recently
found that linguini broken
up works great.

BABY
MEATBALLS/COCK-
TAIL MEATBALLS
Make them 3/4-inch in
diameter for soup and a
little larger for cocktail
meatballs.
1 pound "fat-free" fresh
ground beef or brand-
name ground turkey*
1/2 teaspoon garlic
powder
2 eggs or egg whites or
equivalent egg substitute
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon parsley
flakes
Handful grated Romano
cheese
Mix all together with your
hands, shape and proceed
as explained above.
*Beware of store-ground
turkey. It can contain quite
a lot of fat.

YOUTH ACTIVITIES & SPORTS


Vero's

magical

season

comes to

an end

Turnover cost
Indians a shot at
the state title
BY JOHN MACDONALD
Sports writer
LAKE WORTH After
months of beating teams
with its powerful running
attack, stifling defense
and exceptional kicking
game, the Vero Beach Indi-
ans football players came
up against an opponent
the team couldn't over-
come.
Themselves.
Costly turnovers and
missed opportunities led
to a 14-7 win by Park Vista
in the Region 2-6A semifi-
nal ending Vero Beach's
scintillating season at 9-3.
"I feel empty," Vero head
coach Gary Coggin said.
"You never want it to end.
"Sometimes it's just not
your night. When you get
to that level of the play-
offs, it boils down to the
fewest amount of
turnovers."
Early on, it appeared the
Indians would get on the
scoreboard first. After a
scoreless first quarter,
Vero Beach drove all the
way to the Cobras' 2-yard
line, but Ben Harrison
fumbled the ball and Park
Vista recovered it.
Later in the second
quarter, the Cobras'
wouldn't make the same
mistake, as Jeremy Norfus
took it in from 1-yard out
to give Park Vista a 7-0
advantage.
Still trailing by the same
margin in the third quar-
ter, Vero Beach had a third
and five from the Park
Vista 15, but Harrison was
held to one yard and the
Indians were forced to try
a 31-yard field goal
attempt by Max Feurer.
Unfortunately, the kick
was blocked the second
one of the night by Park
Vista, maintaining the
Cobras' tenuous lead.
On the ensuing drive, it
appeared as the break-
down would prove deadly
for the Indians, as Johnny
Celicourt rumbled for a
24-yard touchdown.
However, a Park Vista
(10-2) holding call negat-
ed the score and Vero's
defense answered the call
on the next two plays, giv-
ing the ball back to the
offense.
The Indians could do
little with it, but the
defense would force
another punt and return
man Skyler Stanford wait-
ed for the ball in Vero ter-
ritory.
Unfortunately, the sen-
ior fumbled while
attempting to make a fair
catch, allowing the Cobras
to take over at the Vero
Beach 37. Five plays later,
quarterback Eddie Sulli-
van called his own num-
ber, carrying it in from 17
yards out to make it 14-0.
With just over six min-
utes left in the game, the
Vero Beach passing attack
- unjustly maligned for
most of the season took
over. After taking over at
its own 45, Shawn O' Dare
hit Stevie Wallace for a 40-
yard gain on third down.
After two miscues by
Vero a false start and a
fumble on a bad snap that
was recovered O' Dare
found a wide-open Zeke
Motta, who pulled down a
high pass for a 25-yard
touchdown.


"We executed in spurts,"
Coggin said.
With 4:36 left in the
game, Vero Beach
attempted an onsides
kick, recovering it surpris-
ingly easily over a lethar-
gic Park Vista return team
at the Cobras' 49.

Season


From page B11
0' Dare ran for two yards
on first down, but was sub-
sequently picked off, giv-
ing Park Vista the ball back
with 3:30 left in the game.
The Vero defense like
it had done all season -
came up big, forcing a
three-and-out, giving the
offense one last chance to.
tie the score.
After gaining four yards
on its first two plays, 0'
D,are once again found
Motta for 29 of his game-
high 64 yards to the
Cobras' 40. Stanford then
caught two consecutive
passes for 17 yards to give
Vero another first down.
After an incomplete
pass, 0' Dare appeared to
toss the game-tying touch-
down, but the ball fell out
of the hands of Eric Smith
in the back of. the end
zone. 0' Dare regrouped
to hit Motta for nine yards
to the Cobras' 14 with
under a minute left in the
game.
Facing fourth-and-f, 0'
Dare's pass was deflected,
ending Vero's bid for a
comeback.
Despite the loss, Coggin
was upbeat, reflecting on
the team's stellar season.
"The one thing I enjoy so


much is the journey," Cog-
gin said. "I don't get as
excited about the wins or
disappointed about the
losses since I was a young
coach.
"We've become close
enough to be a family. It
was a fun group of young
men to be around.
"It was a rewarding and
fulfilling second season. I
don't think I could've
asked for anything more."
Despite losing 28 sen-
iors, the Indians chance
for an encore next season
seems likely.
"We started for next sea-
son two or three weeks
into this season," Coggin
said. "I learned that from
coach Livings. He amazed
me with his depth charts.
"I pretty much have a
good idea of who's going to
play for us on the football
field next year."

Senior glfer


winter series


Ifyou're older than 40 and
looking to play some
serious competitive golf
this winter, the Florida State
Golf Association's 2007-08
Winter Series may be for
you. \
The popular series has
already closed entry for its
first event at Lake Jovita Golf
& Country Club in Dade City.
Last year, every individual
event sold out, so if you're
thinking of playing, it would
be best to get yor entry in
early.
The series divides golfers
into three age groups,
calculated as of April 1.
The three divisions are:
mid-senior (40-54,year olds),
playing approximately 6,700
yards; senior (55-64),
approximately 6,400 yards;
and super senior (65 and
over), approximately 6,100
yards. \
For some reason I'n~ot
comfortable being in the
mid-senior division already!
Throughout the series, le
FSGA maintains a points liht
that will determine which
competitors win their age \
division. At the conclusion of
the series, each series age
division winner will receive a
commemorative award.
The overall point winners
in the 40-54 age division and
the 55-64 age division will
also receive an exemption
into the 2008 State Amateur
at Jupiter Hills Club in
Tequesta.
Also, individual event age
group winners of the senior
and super senior age
division, along with top 10
and ties of the senior and top
five and ties of the super
senior age division 2007-08

A trio of rare birds
It's not often that a golfer
records that elusive ace.
It's even rarer that one
records an Albatross or
double eagle. Dick Gillmor
of Vero Beach did just this
holing out from 240 yards
on his second shot to the
par-5 fourth hole of the
Dunes Course at Sandridge
Golf Club.
At the Ocean Club at the
Hutchinson Island Mar-
riott in Stuart, Gene
Geoghan aced the second
hole. Not wanting him to
steal the spotlight or win
the skin on the hole,
Jennifer Defrank aced the
hole a moment later.
We tip our hat to all three
of you. Congrats!
James Stammer has been
an avid golfer and golf
enthusiast for 30 years. He

Show on WPSL 1590-AM

Youth Guidance to

host Christmas party


FOR HOMETOWN NEWS

VERO BEACH Youth
Guidance will hold a Christ-
mas party for all Youth
Guidance children on Satur-
day, Dec. 8, from 10 a.m. to
12:30 p.m. at the Vero Beach
community center.
At least 100 adult volun-
teers are needed to make
this a magical day for the
kids. Each volunteer is
matched with a child who
does not have a mentor.
This special event, held
each December, is also
attended by ongoing men-
tors and heir children.
Each adult and child pair:
up to make imaginative
centerpieces from holiday'
flowers, ribbons, and deco-'

Lyric
From page B7
tune. "The producers are
making fortunes. I think
there are too many revivals,
but this year, there were a lot
of new shows. "Spring
Awakening" has a lot of
youth and exuberance. It's
wonderful that an art form
has the ability to have
"Spring Awakening" and
"Young Frankenstein" at the
same time."
In his Lyric shows, Mr.
Hamlisch will feature selec-
tions from both Hollywood
and Broadway and will pay
tribute to several composers,
including Richard Rodgers,


rations donated by local
florists.
Once the centerpieces are
completed, Santa arrives
with a gift for each child.
The children deliver the
centerpieces to senior cen-
ters the following week. Vol-
unteers say this event gets
them in the holiday spirit
and focus on what is impor-
tant at this time of year.
In just a couple of hours a
Christmas party volunteer
can make a dramatic differ-
ence in the life of these chil-
dren in need.
Persons interested in vol-
.unteering for this Youth
Guidance special event may
call Barbara Schlitt Ford,
executive director, at (772)
770-5040 for information.


Scott Joplin and Cole Porter.
"Most people are amazed at
how funny it is,", he says.
"They enjoy the music and
the comedy. There's music,
singing and talking. It's a fam-
ily-oriented show. If you want
to get children interested in
listening to music, bring them
to the show."
Marvin Hamlisch appears
at the Lyric Theatre, 59 S.W
Flagler Ave., Stuart, for two
shows, at 6 and 8:30 p.m. Tick-
ets are $60 and-$55. For more
